Larian Patriotik Merdeka 2010

Date: 30 Aug 2010
Time: 10pm
Venue: Stadium Sulaiman, Klang
Distance: 6.8km & 5km
Medal: Top 50

It was not good idea to have a night run at Klang, as despite it started at 10pm, traffic still very heavy and hardly saw any volunteers to manage the traffic. Runners have to run at their own risk. Some streets were dark and no Marshall's to guide the route especially at the contradict junction. Moreover there was no signboard and check point. Resulted that some runners ran into different direction and ran extra km.

Although it was a short run and during puasa period, but it attracted a lot of elite runners, even from Johor and Perak. Prizes were goods in kind and special medal were awarded to top 5 runners.

Three Vets With One Leg Conquer Mt. Kilimanjaro

Neil Duncan, 26, of Denver, CO, center, and Dan Nevins, 37, of Jacksonville, FL, right, are led by local guide Godlisten Moshi, towards the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, on the fourth day of their climb.
At 26, Neil Duncan of Colorado, who lost his legs in Afghanistan, was the youngest of the trio


The three American veterans from three different wars had only one good leg among them. But that didn't stop them from summiting Africa's highest mountain.
The three soldiers -- veterans of Afghanistan, Iraq and Vietnam -- scrambled, clawed and plodded to the top of Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro, hiking up the domed mountain's scree-filled paths on one human leg and five prosthetics made of titanium and carbon fiber.

They skidded. They fell. They removed their legs to adjust their shoes. And after six days of climbing they stood at 19,340 feet -- Africa's highest point.

"The message we're trying to send back to the USA is no matter what disability you have, you can be active," said Kirk Bauer, the executive director of Disabled Sports USA and a 62-year-old Vietnam veteran who lost his leg in 1969. Bauer, of Ellicott City, Md., was one of the triumphant climbers.

"If three amputees from three different wars and two different generations with literally one good leg can climb Kilimanjaro, our other disabled friends can get out and go hiking or go biking or swim a mile, can get out and lead a healthy life," he said.

The youngest of the veterans, Neil Duncan, 26, lost both legs to a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2005. The Denver, Colo., resident tried to summit Kilimanjaro last year, but poor planning and a fast ascent schedule doomed the trip.... Read more

Google CEO Suggests You Change Your Name

Google CEO Eric Schmidt has a great way of making public statements that are at once frank, unorthodox, thought provoking - and a little frightening. This weekend The Wall St. Journal ran an interview with Schmidt that offered tidbits like that on a wide range of topics. One statement in particular, that Schmidt thinks teenagers should be entitled to change their names upon reaching adulthood in order to separate themselves from the Google record of their youthful indiscretions, is something worth stopping to take note of.

Earlier this month we ran our own original coverage of Schmidt statements at a conference where he said that "people aren't ready for the technology revolution that's going to happen to them" and that absolute privacy would prove too-unsafe in the future. His latest comments seem both more and less reasonable. - by By Marshall Kirkpatrick (read more)
