Yamaha FZ For Fuel Economy

    The all new Yamaha FZ150i, 2014 edition is a stylish yet affordable and economical motorcycle. In view of the recent fuel hike many might want to consider this bike as a means of travelling to and from work. With a 12-litre tank and low displacement, this bike can go up to 300 kilometres on a full tank.
   With its stylish look the rider could also blend in with high-powered bikes. It is also a plus point for those who want to use a motorcycle but shy away from mopeds which are so common on our roads.
      The recent increase in gasoline price will help to increase the sales of this bike. It will surely find a place with those who travel long distances to work daily.

Exercise Care In Wake of Sedition Crackdown

 The North Borneo Herald wishes to advise fellow bloggers on the need to exercise care when reporting on truths and writing articles which may offend the ruling United Malays National Organization (UMNO). This is because of the recent crackdown by the UMNO-dominated government by arresting students, a lecturer, a reporter, a lawyer, a Muslim preacher and opposition politicians who have wrote things or made statements which may have angered UMNO.
    Bloggers can however endear themselves to the government by reporting on UMNO's achievements or writing articles praising Umno. Though some might find this against their principles, we must admit that this is a price we have to pay for freedom.
    Do not laugh when reading this article, as you might be arrested for sedition!!!

Tiger of Jelutong Dies

     Chairman of the opposition Democratic Action Party (DAP), Karpal Singh died on April 17th this year in a car crash in Malaya, while travelling from the federal capital Kuala Lumpur to his home state of Penang.

      Karpal Singh joined the DAP in 1970 and had served as state assemblyman and member of parliament until his death.

       Karpal  was cremated according to Sikh rites. His son Ramkarpal Singh succeeded him as member of parliament after winning the by-election following his father's death.

        Karpal was popularly known as the Tiger of Jelutong during his lifetime. Among his struggles were fighting against the death penalty in the Malaysian legal system, fighting abuses by the Malay monarchy, fighting against Islamicization of the federation and fighting against persecution of members of the opposition including the current opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.

         Karpal had during his lifetime been imprisoned many times by the authorities for his struggles. His death is definitely a loss for Malaysians.
