It’s that time again.. the time where students cram all 13 weeks of knowledge (in my case) into their brains only to regurgitate it again in a 2/3 hour paper in the exam hall with a thousand other students.. Best of luck to everyone (especially me! I need it LOL)
I saw another shocking news article..
Shocked mum lodges report over child slapping
KUALA LUMPUR: A nine-year-old girl was slapped by her disciplinary teacher because she was late for school by 10 minutes.
S. Surithambal was late due to the heavy morning traffic in Puchong.
Her mother, V. Kavitha, 29, said she was told about the incident when she went to fetch her daughter from her school at 1pm on Monday.
She said she was shocked to see Surithambal’s swollen face.
“Her class starts at 7.30 and she was only late by 10 minutes. Why must her teacher slap her?” asked Kavitha. read more…
I don’t remember teachers having the right to slap nine year olds or any of their students for any reason at all, slapping a nine year for BEING LATE FOR SCHOOL BY 10 MINUTES is outrageous! There are other ways of punishments that don’t involve violence like cleaning the bilik HEM (when your disciplinary teachers are so very busy with catching naughty rebellious boys they hardly have time to clean their offices) or standing while the rest get to sit for assembly or picking up the rubbish around school for 20 minutes or such… Just what is the wrong with the world today? Please refer to the Common Sense post below … I could go on ranting about this for hours but I won’t…
We have teachers who slap young children for stupid reasons while New Zealand has teachers who don’t mind posing nude for magazines like Australian Penthouse… http://www.smh.com.au/world/kiwi-teacher-shocked-and-gutted-after-nude-photos-outrage-20091027-hhjh.html
On another note..
Baby born on plane named after AirAsia
SEPANG: The baby boy, who created national headlines when he was born on an AirAsia plane, has been named Asia Liew Ya Hang.
His mother Liew Siaw Hsia said the Chinese name ‘Ya Hang’ means ‘AirAsia’ in Mandarin.
“It’s the best name I can give my son who was the first baby born on the airline’s plane,” she said in a statement yesterday.
The mother and baby are currently at the Putrajaya Hospital.
Asia Liew Ya Hang was safely delivered on board Flight AK 6506 on Oct 21 when the aircraft was about 800m in the air.
The flight from Penang to Kuching was diverted to the low-cost carrier terminal here when Liew went into premature labour.
The airline has presented Liew and the baby free flight tickets for life to celebrate the birth.
The poor boy’s gonna be in for a lot of name teasing in the future.. but hey! he gets free flight tickets for life =) I suppose that’s not too bad a deal 😄 or not ~
Again another note ..
Police arrest 16 for alleged pack rape
SIXTEEN men have been arrested over the alleged pack rape of two women on Phillip Island.
The alleged sexual assault occurred on Saturday October 10. Police today said all of the men are aged between 17 and 20.
The men were taken into custody after four simultaneous raids were carried out at about 6:00 this morning, two in Montmorency and one each in Bundoora and Briar Hill, in Melbourne’s northeast.
The men remain at the St Kilda Rd Police Complex where they are continuing to assist police with their investigation.
Detective Inspector Glenn Davies from the Sexual Crime Squad said violence against women will not be tolerated and all such offences will be thoroughly investigated.
“I encourage all women who are victims of sexual assault to report these offences to police,” he said. read more ..
I don’t know how the two unlucky women would live after such an ordeal but I hope they can overcome the physical & emotional damage… one day, men like those 16 are disgusting animals, their lives must be that sad that they had to resolve to such actions to get laid. Or maybe they just did it cos’ they thought it would be fun to gang bang somebody? Either way it makes me sick to read about things like this…
and two other interesting articles about working..
yikes.. looks like I spent more time on this post than intended.. buh bye! expect me to be MIA again =)
