Chelsea vs......Malaysia? - Thursday 27th March 2008 5:35:00 PM

Blues head to Asia

Chelsea have announced a pre-season tour to Asia this summer.

Chief Executive Peter Kenyon confirmed the Samsung-Chelsea Asia Tour 2008 at a press conference in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday.

Chelsea will take on a Malaysian Selection, an all-star team of the best players from the Malaysian Super League, in a match currently scheduled for July 29 in Kuala Lumpur.

Club vs Country! LOL! Chelsea fans, pack your bags and book your tickets/hotels! The Blues are headed for Malaysia!

(I'm NOT an EPL fan. Or any soccer league fan. I just play FIFA. Winning Eleven = Crap. I don't like it.)

Olympic Boycott?

Agence France-Presse - 3/26/2008 2:39 AM GMT

France's Sarkozy raises prospect of Olympic boycott

French President Nicolas Sarkozy left open Tuesday the possibility of boycotting the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony over China's crackdown in Tibet, though other major world leaders vowed to attend.

The White House said that US President George W. Bush still planned to be present for the August 8 opening of the Olympics, and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown's office said he would be there for the closing ceremony on August 24.

But Sarkozy spoke out amid growing political calls for stronger action against the deadly crackdown on anti-Chinese protests in Tibet.

Even countries opposing any boycott have urged China to show restraint handling the demonstrations. Tibet's government in exile said 140 people have been killed in the unrest over the past two weeks, while China says there have been 20 deaths.

Sarkozy, who arrives in Britain for a two-day visit later on Wednesday, said "all options are open" regarding a boycott. He appealed to the "sense of responsibility" of China's leaders over the unrest.

The president's aides specified that France was still considering the possibility of snubbing the opening ceremony, but ruled out boycotting the entire Games.

Alain Bernard, the new French swimming star who set three world records at the European championships, backed a protest of the opening ceremony. "It would send a strong signal to the politicians," he told TF1 television.

It was also announced that the Dalai Lama, the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, would visit France during the Olympics.

Other countries remained firmly against any boycott.

"The last I checked with the president, no, our position remains that we believe that the purpose of the Olympics is to let international athletes come together and showcase their talents," said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.

US State Department spokesman Sean McCormack made similar comments, saying, "I'll reiterate our view, and that is that the Olympics is an important international sporting event."

Another US political leader, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, rejected the boycott calls.

"I am not in favour of a boycott of the Olympic Games. The Olympic Games are a sporting event," she told reporters in Barcelona, the Europa Press news agency reported.

In Britain, which will host the 2012 Olympics, Downing Street said Prime Minister Brown was still planning to attend the Beijing closing ceremony.

Other politicians called for mass demonstrations when the Olympic torch passes through London on April 6, and British Foreign Secretary David Miliband said the country would allow Tibet protestors to stage a demonstration when the Olympic torch passes through London.

But Miliband argued for moderation over Tibet, saying "the danger is that people give up on that (peaceful) course and turn to a more violent course of action."

Australia, Germany and Japan have ruled out boycotting the Olympics while urging the Chinese authorities to show restraint. Germany's government said China and the Dalai Lama should reach a peaceful resolution to the crisis.

After protests marred the lighting of the Olympic torch in Greece on Monday, Australian Foreign Minister Stephen Smith promised safe passage for the torch relay when it comes to Canberra on April 24.

"If people want to peacefully protest about the torch or the Olympics or Tibet, that is what Australian society or New Zealand society is all about, but they should do that in a sensible and peaceful way," Smith said.

Japan rejected calls for a boycott, but Foreign Minister Masahiko Komura said: "For China's own sake, it is best to be as open and transparent as possible" handling protests.

Other countries, including Italy, Poland, Spain and Switzerland have said they have no plans to boycott any part of the Olympics.

China meanwhile condemned protests surrounding the torch relay around the world, after three members of the French-based Reporters Sans Frontieres (Reports Without Borders - RSF) disrupted the lighting of the torch ceremony at Ancient Olympia on Monday.

One unfurled a banner demanding a boycott of the Games and another tried to grab the microphone from the chief Chinese Games organiser as he gave a speech.

Two Nobel peace prize winners weighed in Tuesday. South African anti-apartheid hero Desmond Tutu called for China to engage with the Dalai Lama, saying the spiritual leader defined "non-violence and compassion and goodness."

Costa Rica President Oscar Arias, who won the 1987 Nobel peace prize for his efforts to bring peace to Central America and is a friend of the Dalai Lama, said he was against a boycott of the Games. He said "dialogue between civilised people" was needed.

Meanwhile Cuba's government, which has important trade links with China, said it was "strongly opposed to any intention to interfere in China's internal affairs."

And Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said that unrest in Tibet was part of a US plan aimed at boycotting the Olympics.

"The violence in Tibet is the product of a plan of aggression of the United States against China, and in short term, try to boycott the Olympic Games," Chavez said at a meeting of foreign correspondents in Caracas.

"Venezuela supports with passion the celebration of these games," he said.

A rude awakening

Well, based on my tagboard, the number of readers here is very very low and can probably be counted on one hand. I shan't bother with the links section as of now. Maybe next time, if I feel like it, or if someone asks for it.

Now on to school matters. My timetable for the next semester states that on every even week's Wednesday, meaning the Wednesdays of week 2, week 4, and so on, of school, I have classes from 10am to 5pm with no breaks in between. At all. None. Zero. What are we expected to do, bring packed lunches into lecture?

But wait! The first hour is a tutorial, and the rest are all practicals! That means packed lunches would not work, either! Any suggestions?

28 things most girls don't know

This got into my inbox thanks to T.C.H.

Message: Guys hate sluts even though
have sex with them!
(oh're not 'popular' if
you've slept with more than 6're a HOE)

--Guys may be flirting around all day
but before they go to sleep, they
always think about the girl they truly
care about.

--Guys go crazy over a girl's smile.

--Guys will do anything just to get
you to notice him

--Guys hate it when you talk about
your ex-boyfriend or ex love-interest.

--Boyfriends need to be reassured
often that they're still loved.

--Don't talk about your guy friends to
your boyfriend.

--Guys get jealous easily.

--Guys are more emotional than they'd
like people to think.

--Giving a guy a hanging message
like 'You know
what?!..uh...nevermind..' would make
him jump to a conclusion that is far
from what you are thinking. And he'll
assume he did something wrong and
he'll obsess about it trying to figure
it out.

--Guys are good flatterers when
courting but they usually stammer when
they talk to a girl they really like.

--A usual act that proves that the guy
likes you is when he teases you.

--Guys love you more than you love
them if they are serious in your

--Guys think WAY too much. One small
thing a girl does, even if she doesn't
notice it can make the guy think about
it for hours, trying to figure out
what it meant.

--Guys seek for advice from girls not
other guys. Because most guys think
alike, so if one guy's confused, then
we're all confused.

--When a guy asks you to leave him
alone, he's just actually
saying, 'Please come and listen to me.'

--If a guy starts to talk seriously,
listen to him. It doesn't happen that
often, so when it does, you know
something's up.

--If your best guy friend seems to
avoid you or is never around when
you're with your boyfriend, he's
probably jealous and likes you.

--When a guy tells you that you are
beautiful, don't say you aren't. It
makes them want to stop telling you
because they don't want you to
disagree with them.

--When a guy looks at you for longer
than a second, he's definitely
thinking something.

--Guys don't like girls who punch
harder than they do.

--A guy has more problems than you can
see with your naked eyes.

--Don't be a snob. Guys can be
intimidated and give up easily.

--Guys talk about girls more than
girls talk about guys.

--Guys hate rejection, but they hate
being led on even more.

--If you are going to reject a guy,
just do it. Don't say they are like a
brother or just good friends, it just
hurts even more. Tell them that you
aren't interested in a relationship
and they will respect you.

--Guys really think that girls are
strange and have unpredictable
decisions and are MADLY confusing but
somehow are drawn even more to them.

--When a guy sacrifices his sleep and
health just to be with you, he really
likes you and wants to be with you as
much as possible.

Something from the past

If I had my way back then, my top 3 choices for Secondary Schools would have been Xinmin/North Vista/Mayflower. Yeah, and I would have ignored the 2nd Option Form.

I just felt like it, ok?

RE: Physicists Successfully Store and Retrieve Nothing

Kai Yi has some problems understanding this article.

Basically, what it says is that scientists have found a way to store 'nothing', meaning vacuum. Read the article. Please. If you don't get it, then read my interpretation of the article.

The example on light shows that when light is travelling through gas and suddenly stopped, it gets imprinted on the atoms. When you let it move again, there is no more print. Same for the vacuum.

Ok. An easier explanation. Compare it to your computer. Everytime you move your mouse or type there are zeros and ones being created and erased. When you save, it creates an imprint of that particular set of information. The only difference is that when you load a saved file on your computer, the original saved file is still there. When you do that for the vacuum, or for light, the original 'file' is gone.

Now you understand?
