Although Marvel has informed all Avengers fans that Thanos demands our collective silence for Avengers: Endgame, there’s sure to be a couple of jerks who love to do nothing else if not ruin the fun for everyone by posting spoilers online.

via GIPHY

While we have taken to un-friending these horrible people on Facebook (we honestly recommend this, it feels so good), it seems that now there’s a less passive aggressive way to deal with them.

Top dog Malaysian, Ng Khai Yong, has created a Google Chrome extension that will ensure you don’t see any Avengers: Endgame spoilers

The aptly called No Spoilers extension automatically blurs any post talking about the long-awaited film.

Mashable Asia tested the extension out by installing it and then visiting the Avengers Facebook page. Here’s what they saw: Nothing.

Heck, it works so well that when Khai Yong shared the extension on his own Facebook profile, he couldn’t see his post. 🤣

This basically means that the extension will automatically blur anything that mentions Avengers: Endgame. Which might include updates too. Personally, we don’t mind. Anything but spoilers, please.

First It Was Bomba’s “Fireproof” Suits, Now Their Fire Trucks Are Breaking Down

Facing life-threatening situations is part and parcel of being a firefighter. These are the people who keep us and our property safe from fires, assist us during natural disasters, save us from unwanted reptilian visitors in our homes and hold search and rescue operations when we are missing. The least we can do is make sure their equipment is in good working order for them to do their job.

However, a recent Harian Metro exclusive revealed that almost 40 per cent of Bomba’s fire trucks, aka Fire Rescue Tenders (FRT) dah rosak and takboleh pakai. According to the source who spoke to Harian Metro, the vehicles drive shafts or power take off (PTO) keep breaking down leaving almost half of their nationwide fleet completely unusable.

Image via Harian Metro

The faulty vehicles were part of 242 FRTs purchased in 2007, 2010 and 2014 for RM420 million from a local supply company who was contracted by the government via a closed tender process.

“Unfortunately, for the last three years, the vehicles have started to break down, with the main damage happening at the drive shaft or PTO resulting in the vehicle being abandoned”

Image via Harian Metro

The Selangor based company reportedly failed to provide adequate design and installation of required parts for the vehicles according to specifications. And this is believed to be the main reason why the FRTs keep breaking down. FYI, the unusable FRTs are worth a total of RM165 million.

The source noted that a basic FRT in good condition costs only about RM1.5 million per unit. Yet, the FRTs purchased were bought for up to RM1.86 million per unit from the local supplier. The source pointed out that although the government paid a high price for the vehicles, they still broke down frequently and he is sure it’s only a matter of time until the rest become unusable too.

Image via Wikimedia

Currently, the unusable FRTs have been left to rot at the several Bomba garages nationwide, including in Section 15, Shah Alam, Serdang and Salak Tinggi.

 Based on the report, the process for purchasing vehicles for Bomba was done via open tender prior to 2007. And so, the vehicles received then were in good condition.  FRTs should be operative for at least 15 years, yet the ones currently being used by Bomba barely made it through 10 years of use.

This news comes after MACC’s investigation into the materials used for Bomba’s “fire-proof” suits worth RM13.5 million which were reported to be made of flammable materials.

MACC sent a sample of the suit to the Department of Chemistry who confirmed that the materials used to make the suits did not adhere to the standard set by Bomba. According to a statement by MACC, the investigation into the “fire-proof” suits is in its final stages.

This Is Why The Notre-Dame Cathedral Fire Is Such A Devastating Loss

Published

A massive fire destroyed significant parts of the Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris on the 16th of April.

While most of the main structure remain intact, the fire burned for several hours, destroying the cathedral’s iconic spire and roof before firefighters contained the blaze.

This shocked many Parisians, tourists and people all over the world, and it is still unclear as to what caused the fire.

But for those who are only familiar with the cathedral thanks to Disney animation ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’, let’s look at a few facts about the iconic Parisian structure to appreciate it a little more.

via GIPHY

THE SPIRE WAS A SPIRITUAL LIGHTNING ROD

In the aftermath of the fire, you might have seen videos of the long rod on the cathedral topple down amid a blaze.

That was the spire!

The spire also had an adorable little rooster on top of it (which you can see in the picture above!), which is said to be a piece with three relics secured in the metal bird’s body.

This includes a possible piece of the Crown of Thorns acquired by the church in 1239, and relics from Saint Denis and Saint Genevieve.

This rod is said to have been a ‘spiritual lightning rod’ to protect the parishioners within.

AN OLD TEMPLE LIKELY LIES BELOW THE CATHEDRAL

Image via TripSavvy

There was once a Gallo-Roman city known as Lutetia underneath the current area of Notre Dame, Paris. The cathedral may have been built right over a temple, as during an excavation, pieces of a sculpted altar dedicated to Jupiter and other deities were found.

NAPOLEON WAS CORONATED AS EMPEROR THERE

Image via Twitter

Napoléon Bonaparte decided to have his 1804 coronation as emperor in Notre-Dame, but the cathedral was in bad shape due to decay and vandalism.

The French statesman and military leader then declared its return to church use, returned it to its former glory, and hosted his grand ceremony within its walls.

This was also an event in which he famously crowned himself.

VICTOR HUGO ALSO HELPED SAVE THE BUILDING

Image via elsiglo.mx

Author Victor Hugo used the cathedral as a personification of France itself in his 1831 novel ‘Notre-Dame de Paris’, the book that inspired the Disney film ‘The Hunchback of Notre Dame’.

In the book, the hunchbacked bell ringer Quasimodo is NOT the main character.

His published story was a success, and it led to a major restoration of the building overseen by architects Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Lassus and Eugène Viollet-le-Duc.

IT TOOK 100 YEARS TO COMPLETE

The cathedral started construction in the 12th century when Maurice de Sully became bishop of Paris. It was also during the reign of King Louis VII.

100 years later, when it finally got completed, Henry VI of England was crowned as the King of France there.

IT IS HOME TO HISTORICAL AND BIBLICAL ARTEFACTS

Image via 10tv

The cathedral of Notre-Dame in Paris is home to various artifacts, artwork and relics collected over the centuries, including what is believed to be the Crown of Thorns itself (pictured above), the original Great Organ dating back to medieval times, and the Rose Windows which are stained-glass windows that date back to the 13th century.

There are also sculptures, statues and paintings inside the cathedral that depict Biblical scenes and saints.

Thankfully, it’s been reported that all of the artefacts and artwork inside the cathedral have been saved from the fire.

Concerned About Missing Children? Here’s How You Can Have NUR Alerts Sent Straight To Your Phone

NUR (National Urgent Response) Alert is a government initiative started by PDRM to ensure children aged 12 years and below receive protection from exploitation, violence and neglect.

To assist this initiative, Malaysian telco companies have decided to send out NUR Alerts to their users to help inform the public of any missing children.

However, your telco company will not send the alert to you without prior approval. If you subscribe to NUR Alerts, the announcements will be made via MMS sent free of charge to your mobile phone. The message will typically contain an image of the child and further information about their case.

Receiving NUR Alerts can prevent injury and save the lives of abducted and missing children. NUR Alerts can also serve as deterrents to those who would prey upon our children, as some perpetrators may release the abducted child once they find out the public is aware of the crime and the missing child.

Approving NUR Alerts to your phone is an easy single step procedure, here’s all you need to do:

Image via MCMC

Yesterday, a NUR Alert for an eight-year-old boy was posted on the PDRM website. Muhammad Zahiruddin Putra left his house at Pangsapuri Seri Dahlia in Bandar Seri Putra Bangi at 8am on Monday (15 April) to play with his friend.

His mother, Sainih Sunding only realized that Zahiruddin was missing after coming home from work that evening.

“I asked my third eldest child about Zahir and he told me Zahir was playing with a friend nearby.

We tried looking for Zahir around the neighbourhood but to no avail. A neighbour said he saw Zahir going to a shop at noon yesterday and in the evening, another neighbour saw him playing in the neighbourhood. That was the last time he was seen.

He was wearing a black t-shirt and a pair of blue pants. I am worried for his safety because he has not done this before (not coming home).”

If you have seen Zahiruddin or have any information on his whereabouts, do contact the nearest police station. Let’s hope we find this child soon!

Malaysia Is Being Used As Australia’s Tong Sampah?!

Turns out, Malaysia has become a tong sampah for Australia.

An exposé by Australian current affairs program, 60 Minutes, revealed that 71 thousand tonnes of rubbish from Australia were shipped to Malaysia in the past year because Australia’s recycling factories can’t cope with the massive amount of plastic being thrown away by them on a daily basis.

In an interview with 60 Minutes reporter Liam Bartlett, Malaysian Minister Yeo Bee Yin from the Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology and Climate Change Minister is clearly frustrated.

Image via YouTube

“I really think every country should take care of their own waste. We have 400 containers at customs now, full of plastic waste. This is what I really want to do, I want to send them ALL back to their country of origin.”

She adds, the government has so far shut down 150 illegal recycling factories nationwide since last July, but they’re just the tip of the iceberg. These factories dump plastic waste that can’t be recycled, on farmland, harming the environment and locals.

60 Minutes says Malaysia fell victim after China stopped accepting plastic waste from Australia. China was a giant importer of waste, taking in 125 thousand tonnes a year before they closed their doors. The Aussies then had to find an alternative and found that operators from China had opened illegal recycling factories in Malaysia.

Image via Business Insider

Yeo has vowed to impose stricter restrictions on plastic waste imports and new permits.

“I do not blame ordinary Australians. I think most of the people do not know this is happening. But now we know that this is happening, we need the solution.”

For now, Malaysia is inundated by the sheer number of illegal recycling factories, with limited resources to monitor the trade.

While this news is making us pretty annoyed with Straya, we’re reminded of the pepatah that goes something like “kuman di seberang laut tampak gajah didepan mata tak nampak” and consider how often we use and buang single-use plastic bag/straw/bottle/tapau containers in our own country. 🧐

Chinese Dad Threw Coins At A Plane For Good Luck Cause His Mother-In-Law Suruh, Gets Detained

For those married men out there, we’re sure you all understand how difficult it is to say no to your mother-in-law. Right? Well, a young father in China got detained by police for following a suggestion given to him by his mother-in-law.

A 31-year-old father in China was recently detained by airport security after he threw three coins near a plane he was about to board, to wish for a safe journey. The flight got delayed by 30 minutes due to his actions.

The disrupted flight was a Hainan Airlines flight from Wuhan in Hubei province to Xinjiang’s capital Urumqi.

Security footage obtained by Yangtze River Daily showed the dad, clad in a red shirt with his wife behind him holding their baby daughter, about to board the plane. Just before stepping in, he pauses and makes a throwing motion next to the door before entering the plane.

Video via South China Morning Post

The dad, whose surname is Xia, is just one of the many stories of people throwing coins at planes in China for good luck. However, the practice is dangerous as the coins could end up in the plane’s engines, damage the spinning turbine and cause engine failure.

After being detained, Xia was questioned by police. He told them that his mother-in-law had suggested that he throw coins at the ground for a safe journey since this was his four-month-old daughter’s first flight.

Apparently, Xia and his wife considered throwing the coins in the airport lounge but thought it wouldn’t be very effective. So Xia took advantage when he had a moment on the boarding bridge right before entering the plane.

Airport staff found three one-yuan coins on the tarmac and the flight departed after a 30-minute delay.

Apparently, Xia was detained by police in Wuhan for 10 days and did not end up making the flight with his wife and daughter. We wonder if jaga-ing his mother-in-law’s hati was worth it?

Check Your Extension Cords! These Five Cheap Brands Could Spark A Fire When Used!

Just like a dangerous thief who comes to rob your house in the night, a fire can rob your life, the life of your loved ones or at the very least rob you of your property, in the blink of an eye! In Malaysia, a faulty electrical source is one of the major causes of home fires

Recently, Hong Kong’s Electrical and Mechanical Services Department issued a statement urging the public to stop using five multiway extension leads models.

You might be wondering, tu dekat Hong Kong, apesal this is important to us Malaysians? Well, these five models are actually available for purchase online in Malaysia for really cheap!

See!

According to the statement, the five models do not have the required safety features. To be specific, the wires used in these models are too thin. Yes, model extension cord ni macam model.. terlampau kurus.

You see, when the wires are too thin for the current requirement of your electronic gadgets, the wires will start to overheat. Kiranya, wire tu stress la korang paksa dia buat banyak sangat kerja. Member dah panas, lama lama dia terbakar.

Here’s the list of the five multiway extension lead units that you need to stay clear of:

#1

Brand: Remax
Model: RU- S4

On top of thin wires, the LDNIO and unbranded multiway extension lead units don’t have a built-in safety fuse either. Which means, if an overcurrent happens while you have your expensive iPhone XS plugged in charging, terbakar la telefon kau.

There’s nothing wrong with looking for a cheaper alternative when buying things whether online or IRL. Just make sure the item is safe for use and SIRIM approved! And if you are by chance using any of these products, throw them in the trash STAT! It’s not worth it bro..

Vlogger Defends Muslims Despite Being Cyberbullied by Muslims on Social Media

Voiced by Amazon Polly

Agon Hare, aka the vlogger of Project Nightfall, recently posted a video about how Muslim netizens from many countries, including Malaysia, have been cyberbullying him.

In the video, he shared that Muslims from various countries had been cursing him and sending him death threats. However, he explains that although the severity of the cyberbullying really distressed him, he refuses to believe that the type of cyberbullying he faced, was taught by Islam.

is this Islam?

Please watch the whole video before you comment.Peace be upon you. 🙂 I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to all the good Muslim people who wrote to me in peace trying to explain why they believe my video was wrong. It is them who made me realize that I have rushed my previous video and should've explained it much better. I simplified a complicated issue and for that I'm sorry. People from Brunei are not back-minded. They are religious.I also shouldn't ask for boycott. I'm not happy about it. Never have I made a video in 2 hours and this was the outcome. Emotions won.Now, I still stand behind my message and I know for sure that no one should ever wish me death for that. No one should be agressive. No one should harrass other people who don't follow Islam. This was unacceptable and I was so sad getting messages from people saying "all Muslims are extremists"… that's why I decided to make this video. To have a good outcome out of all of this.Please, let's learn on this. I really believe in you. I really hope that you won't bring hate to this video. I really believe that we will follow these words:"Instead of competing with each other's values and beliefs,it would be much better if we were competing in doing good."

Posted by Project Nightfall on Sunday, 7 April 2019

Responding to the death threats, he quotes a verse in Surah Al-Ma’idah of the Quran which says:

“Whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.”

He also apologises for an earlier video he had posted where he had expressed his disagreement and called for the boycott of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei, the video that caused netizens to be so angry with him.

Following the news that Brunei had recently implemented Shariah law in their country, Agon had disagreed specifically with Brunei’s stand on stoning to death those who were caught participating in gay sex.

Facebook users were angry with him as they had the opinion that Agon didn’t have a right to an opinion on this issue.

This Country's Law Needs to be Stopped

This video created way too much hate. I'm sorry for that. I created a video response to all of this:https://www.facebook.com/ProjectNightfall/videos/785690525137791/

Posted by Project Nightfall on Tuesday, 2 April 2019

It is possible that many Facebook users responded so horribly to Agon because they were unaware that expressing an opinion on an issue that’s happening in another country and calling for people to boycott a government and people IS NOT illegal. Malaysia has also called for people to boycott certain governments and people in the past, for example, we decided to reject Israel Paralympians from participating in our country earlier this year.

It is also possible, that the same Facebook users were also unaware that under Malaysian law, threatening someone with violence and death IS illegal and those who do it can be charged under section 503 of the Malaysian Penal Code for Criminal Intimidation.

Serious issues aside, kenapa Agon tu nak terasa lebih over someone calling his mother green? Playground humour je kot. Dramatic betul la.

BTW, besides Agon, many Hollywood celebrities had also called for the boycott of Sultan Hassanal of Brunei, such as Ellen Degeneres, George Clooney and Dua Lipa. Though it’s unclear if any Malaysians have called their mothers green.

Singaporeans on Twitter were shocked to find out that the loud noise they mistook for thunder at 1.25am this morning was actually an explosion that was reported to have occurred at Petronas’ Refinery and Petrochemical Integrated Development in Pengerang, Johor.

Some netizens in Pasir Gudang also reportedly felt the tremors from the explosion.

Kota Tinggi police chief Superintendent Ahsmon Bajah said the fire broke out at a project lot in the facility where the Petronas RAPID Pengerang Emergency Fire and Response Team were immediately deployed.

“A total of five fire engines and 30 personnel managed to contain the blaze and later extinguish the fire at 2.15am,”

Malay Mail reported that two local employees suffered minor injuries during the fire and have received outpatient treatment at the RAPID Pengerang’s medical emergency center.

Pictures and videos of the incident have been circulating online, with some reports saying that the fire and explosion were caused due to a leaking gas tank at the facility.
