Quote of the Day

“In our enthusiasm in welcoming the retention of the Sedition Act, I want to remind Umno members that the Act is not a tool to be used to maintain power. Remember, if people are not supporting us, no law on God’s Earth can save Umno from losing its power.”

Former Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's subtle yet strongly worded caution following Najib’s announcement at the Umno general assembly this morning that the controversial Sedition Act will be retained and fortified.

Say What?

“My goal was never to make Facebook cool. I’m not a cool person, and I’ve never really tried to be cool.”

 

Thirty-year-old billionaire Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg during his first public Q&A session at Facebook’s California headquarters on Nov 8, 2014.
