Jom Tutup Lampu

This year, Earth Hour has been transformed into the world’s first global election, between Earth and global warming. For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009. This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.

Earth Hour began in Sydney in 2007, when 2.2 million homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. In 2008 the message had grown into a global sustainability movement, with 50 million people switching off their lights. Global landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Rome’s Colosseum, the Sydney Opera House and the Coca Cola billboard in Times Square all stood in darkness.

In 2009, Earth Hour is being taken to the next level, with the goal of 1 billion people switching off their lights as part of a global vote. Unlike any election in history, it is not about what country you’re from, but instead, what planet you’re from. VOTE EARTH is a global call to action for every individual, every business, and every community. A call to stand up and take control over the future of our planet. Over 74 countries and territories have pledged their support to VOTE EARTH during Earth Hour 2009, and this number is growing everyday.

We all have a vote, and every single vote counts. Together we can take control of the future of our planet, for future generations.

atas permintaan Diana Nordin , saya menulis blog ini sambil korek hidung .

pada suatu hari , anak kambing pergi bersiar-siar di padang rumput tempat ia meragut . rumput di situ amat segar sehingga cacing pun tak tahu nak lepak mana lagi . anak kambing tersebut kemudian terasa lapar dan meragut rumput berkenaan .

tiba-tiba datang sebuah kereta peronda yang membawa dua orang pegawai polis . lalu polis tersebut pergi ke arah anak kambing berkenaan dan menggari anak kambing tersebut . kebetulan penternak kambing , Diana ingin bercucuk tanam di kebun berhampiran padang ternampak anak kambing kepunyaannya digari oleh pihak polis .

lalu dia bergegas ke tempat kejadian dan bertanya kepada pihak polis berkenaan ' mu nok curi anak kambin den yoo ? ' kata Diana . pihak polis tersebut membalas ' oh tidak mak cik . cuma anak kambing kepunyaan mak cik ini telah melakukan kesalahan . ' sambil mengorek hidung Diana bertanya lagi . ' apo kesalahannyo ? mu jangan buat gilo ! ' pihak polis itu menerangkan . ' anak kambing ini telah melakukan jenayah ragut mak cik . kami menerima laporan dan segera bergegas ke mari . '

Diana semakin pelik . reaksinya bertukar menjadi marah . dia mencapai kapak pusakanya . ' ini anak kambing ! bukan peragut ! kome ni bodoh ye ? kecik-kecik taknak mampos ! ' maki Diana kepada pihak polis . pihak polis itu terkejut dengan reaksi Diana yang tiba-tiba berubah . terbeliak biji mata mereka . ' tapi mak cik , menurut undang-undang anak kambing ini perlu ditahan untuk siasatan lanjut . ' terang pihak polis kepada Diana . penerangan tersebut menyebabkan Diana ingin memberi penerajang cap unta . tapi kerana sikap kesabaran yang tinggi dia berkata ' kome ni nak mampos ? reti ke anak kambing ni nak meragut orang ? ' pihak polis tersebut kemudiannya menafikan ' ia tidak meragut sesiapa . tetapi ia telah meragut rumput-rumput di padang ini . siapa punya padang ini , mak cik ? ' Diana tersengih dan membalas ' kalau kome nak tahu , padang ni mak cik yang punya . tak nampak ke signboard tu ? ' masing-masing segera berpaling ke arah papan tanda tersebut .

oleh kerana terkejut dengan perkataan yang tertulis di papan tanda berkenaan , pihak polis tersebut meminta maaf kepada Diana . ' kami minta maaf mak cik . kami tak sengaja . ' perasaan marah Diana semakin membara . ' kepala hotak kome ! nak makan selipar saiz 5 aku ? ' marah Diana . lalu Diana berkata lagi ' peragut dengan anak kambing pun tak dapat beza ke ? biaso lerr anak kambing pergi meragut rumput ! tapi bukannya meragut orang lah bahlol ! ' sebiji selipar melayang ke arah polis berkenaan . belum sempat mengelak ia telah melekat pada muka salah seorang dari mereka . ' apa ni mak cik ? bukan ke saya dah mintak maap ? i cant believe it ! im sorry ! ' pihak polis itu menjerit kepada Diana sambil menangis . lalu polis berkenaan beredar dari situ . Diana ketawa terbahak-bahak lalu menjerit ' sori ? pergi kawin dengan banggali laaaaaa ! kome ni dah la bodoh , lepas tu cengeng pulak . baik tak payah jadi polis ! '

moralnya di sini , sila hormati Diana . beliau sangat merbahaya . (;

Sid Vicious Biography

Musician, singer. Born John Simon Ritchie on May 10, 1957, in London, England. One of the most mythic figures of the 1970s punk explosion, Sid Vicious became famous for his edgy, rebellious persona and his self-destructive tendencies. As a teenager, he floundered, dropping out of school. Hanging around London, he was one of the many disaffected youth to embrace the punk spirit of anarchy and rebellion.

With his spiky hair, disheveled appearance, and bad attitude, Vicious was considered the ideal person to join the leading punk group, the Sex Pistols. He was brought in by the band’s manager, Malcolm McLaren, to replace original bassist Glen Matlock in 1977, even though he didn’t even know how to play the instrument.

McLaren had created the Sex Pistols in 1975. One of the leading forces in punk music, the band played fast-paced short songs, expressing angst and frustration about the social and political conditions of the time. Unlike music acts from previous generations, the group had no interest in producing hit records or pleasing anyone other than themselves. Even before Vicious joined, the Sex Pistols were known for causing quite a stir. During a live television interview in 1976, they spewed so many profanities that they were soon dropped by their record company.

Vicious was on board, however, for some of the group’s biggest sensations. On the single “God Save the Queen,” singer John Rotten (the stage name of John Lyndon) insulted Queen Elizabeth II, saying that she “ain’t no human being” and had a “fascist regime.” This upset many Britons, especially since 1977 was Queen’s Jubilee, the celebration of her 25 years as the reigning monarch. As a result, the band was physically attacked several times and unable to find places to play in the United Kingdom. Still they managed to sell a lot of records, especially considering the single was banned and many retailers refused to sell the resulting album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols. There was no denying that they struck a chord with punk music fans.

That same year, Vicious met an American woman named Nancy Spungen. The two became inseparable. She accompanied him on the Sex Pistols’ brief tour of the United States in early 1978. The group only played eight concerts together before the band fell apart. The dissolution of the Sex Pistols was fed, in part, by escalating drug use and personal conflicts, including tension between Spungen and Vicious’s bandmates. It has been reported that Rotten encouraged Vicious to break off his relationship to Spungen.

After the break-up of the Sex Pistols, Vicious and Spungen spent time in London before moving to New York City. They stayed at the Chelsea Hotel, home to many artists, writers, and musicians over the years. Spungen took over as Vicious’s manager and got him a few gigs, but his performances were lackluster as he was strung out on drugs at the time. The two tried to get clean briefly, but they soon spent most of their time feeding their drug habit, which included heroin, barbiturates, and a synthetic form of morphine.

Sometime during the early hours of October 12, 1979, the couple’s downward spiral reached a tragic end. Spungen was found dead on the bathroom floor in their room at the Chelsea Hotel. She had been stabbed with a knife she had given Vicious as a present. Vicious was later found in the hallway in a complete drug-induced fog. He alternated between saying that he couldn’t remember what happened and confessing that he killed her. Vicious was charged with second-degree murder.

A few days later, Vicious was released on bail, using money put up by his record company. Despondent over Spungen’s death, he tried to commit suicide after leaving jail. After a fight in a New York City club, Vicious was locked up again. He spent seven weeks in the prison on Riker’s Island. On February 1, Vicious was released. He celebrated his newfound freedom with a party at the home of actress Michelle Robinson. Sometime that evening, Vicious returned to using heroin. The next morning he was found dead of a drug overdose.

His sudden death only fueled his legacy as a punk rock icon. His twisted love affair with Spungen was the inspiration for the 1986 film Sid and Nancy, starring actor Gary Oldman as Vicious.
