HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

But take a look at what happens when you use them together!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Quick Primer!

HUAWEI just introduced the MatePad 11 tablet and the MateBook D15 laptop, each offering new capabilities.

HUAWEI MatePad 11

Running on HarmonyOS 2, the MatePad 11 is the first HUAWEI tablet to feature a 10.95-inch FullView display with a 120 Hz refresh rate for a silky-smooth visual experience, and a DCI-P3 colour gamut for real-to-life colours!

Its display is also TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light-certified, and TÜV Rheinland Flicker-Free certified, guaranteeing you hours of comfortable viewing without eye fatigue.

The MatePad 11 comes with the 2nd Generation M-Pencil stylus, which boasts an almost imperceptible lag as low as 2 ms. It has 4,096 pressure levels and tilt sensitivity, giving you a natural writing and drawing experience.

The 2nd Generation M-Pencil also supports Double Tap to Switch tools, for convenient writing and drawing. If you make a mistake, just double tap the M-Pencil to instantly switch it to the eraser mode!

It also supports HUAWEI FreeScript that quickly converts your handwriting into beautiful text, as well as Instant Shape and Instant Table, to help you easily draw perfect shapes and tablets!

The MatePad 11 is also a multimedia powerhouse, with quad-channel large amplitude quad-speaker system, tuned by Harman Kardon.

It is further enhanced with Histen 7.0 for greater bass and a new sound field enhancement algorithm, giving you that immersive cinema-like audio experience when you watch movies!

The MatePad 11 tablet also comes with 4 microphones, to pick up your voice while eliminating background noise using its built-in noise reduction and echo cancellation technologies.

You also do not need to worry about its battery life – the HUAWEI MatePad 11 offers up to 12 hours of work productivity time or 1080p video playback on a single charge.

HUAWEI MateBook D15

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 is now powered by either the 10th or 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, in a superbly thin and light aluminium alloy chassis – just 16.9 mm thin and weighing only 1.56 kg.

It comes with a FullView Display, offering 87% screen-to-body ratio, thanks to its 5.3 mm narrow bezels at the top and sides.

The large 15.6-inch display has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, and an anti-glare IPS panel that is TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light and Flicker-Free certified.

Despite its slim design, the MateBook 15 offers an impressive array of ports :

  • 1 x USB-C port
  • 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 port
  • 2 x USB 2.0 ports
  • 1 x HDMI port
  • 1 x 3.5 mm audio port

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : A Synergistic Combo!

Both the HUAWEI MatePad 11 and MateBook 15 are not your average tablet or laptop. They both come with built-in distributed technology to harness the capabilities of other devices.

This distributed technology unleashes the synergistic potential that most people don’t realise, when the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15 are used together!

When used together, they both can perform what HUAWEI calls Multi-screen Collaboration, with three modes :

Mirror Mode

The HUAWEI MateBook D15 display can be mirrored onto the MatePad 11 tablet, allowing it to be used as a digital drawing pad using the bundled 2nd Generation M-Pencil.

You can use the M-Pencil to write, draw or doodle on the MatePad 11 tablet, with the changes reflected on MateBook D15’s documents.

You can also use the mirror mode for collaborative discussions by separate groups – the same content can be viewed and changed on the tablet and PC by different people / groups at the same time.

Extend Mode

The HUAWEI MatePad 11 can serve as a secondary display for the MateBook D15 laptop, giving you more space to work with.

You can use tablet to load documents for reference, or browse for information or play videos while you work on the laptop.

Collaborate Mode

The built-in distributed technology allows you to easily transfer content between the MatePad 11 and the MateBook D15, without using a USB flash drive!

All you have to do is drag and drop the files you want – be they photos, videos, music or even documents – using the mouse. It’s that simple!

On top of that, you can use the keyboard and mouse between both devices using the Collaborate Mode!

 

HUAWEI MatePad 11 + MateBook D15 : Price + Deal!

HUAWEI is offering their new tablets and laptops at these launch prices :

  • MatePad 11 (128 GB) : RM1,999 (about US$473 / £342 / A$641 / S$643)
  • MatePad 11 (256 GB) : RM2,399 (about US$568 / £411 / A$770 / S$771)

Fact Check : COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia!

Is Malaysia going to issue a physical vaccination ID card for those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19?

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia

A video has been circulating on social media and WhatsApp, claiming to show physical COVID-19 vaccination ID cards that will be issued to those who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The video shows that your vaccination certificate is printed on one side, with the type of vaccine you received will be printed on the reverse side.

 

JKJAV : No COVID-19 Vaccination ID Card For Malaysia!

The COVID-19 vaccination ID card in the video looks really cool, but it is NOT genuine.

There is NO official physical COVID-19 vaccination card in Malaysia!

On 23 July 2021, JKJAV – the Special Committee on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced that :

  • there is no physical vaccination certificate, and
  • there is only the digital vaccination certificate in MySejahtera and a simple vaccination card.

Back in March 2021, Malaysia Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba showed off the My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge.

However, the My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge appears to be shelved. Besides, it looks completely different from the vaccination ID card in the video.

Read more : First Look At My COVID-19 Vaccination Badge!

It is possible that the video was recorded by a private company offering their card printing service to people who want to print a physical copy of their digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate.

However, we do NOT recommend that as the digital COVID-19 certificate contains personal data that you may not want people to have access to.

  • your full name
  • your MyKad / passport number
  • a QR code which currently has placeholder data (Scan Sample QR code), but could later be filled with sensitive information

In its digital form, it is protected by your smartphone’s encryption – you need to log in to access the digital certificate. Once printed out, that protection is lost.

Just in case you are worried about “losing” the certificate, JKJAV says that you will soon be able to print a physical copy of the digital certificate for safekeeping.

If you just can’t wait, here is a simple solution – take a screenshot of the digital certificate.

You Can Now Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination!

Let there be no more doubt – you now have the right to record a video of your own COVID-19 vaccination!

Here is the latest update on vaccine underdose / empty vaccination, and your right to record a video!

 

Why Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination?

Recently, there has been a spate of complaints about vaccine underdose or even empty vaccinations!

Some may be misunderstandings (reading LDV syringes wrongly, for example) or even fake news, several have been confirmed to be true.

Recommended : Vaccine Underdose : What Should You Watch Out For?

 

You Can Now Record Video Of Your COVID-19 Vaccination!

On 23 July 2021, National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced that you are ALLOWED to record a video of your own COVID-19 vaccination.

This is on top of the existing SOP to show you that the syringe contains the correct volume of vaccine, before it is injected.

You have my permission, and also permission from the Health Minister himself, in case there was orders not to allow (you to record a video). Now, vaccine recipients can record a video of their vaccine injections.

Go and film yourselves, and take a video of your vaccination, so you have hard proof, and we also have hard proof, that you received the proper dosage for your vaccination.

 

Don’t Just Record A Video During Your COVID-19 Vaccination

To avoid accidentally getting a partial dose of the vaccine or none at all, please make sure you follow these steps at the vaccination centre :

  1. Check the label of the vial or prepared syringe, to confirm the vaccine you are receiving. Here in Malaysia, that’s Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Sinovac.
  2. The doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to verify that it has the correct volume.
Vaccines Dose Volume
Pfizer COMIRNATY 0.3 ml
AstraZeneca Vaxzevria 0.5 ml
Sinovac CoronaVac 0.5 ml

Please note that if a low dead volume (LDV) syringe is used, you should read the volume from the first ring of the plunger, not the top.

Recommended : How To Read The Volume Of LDV Syringe Correctly?

  1. Film a video of the vaccination process, taking care to record the injection itself.
  2. After receiving the injection, the doctor or nurse will show you the syringe, for you to confirm that it is empty.
  3. Before leaving the vaccination booth, go through the video to confirm that you received the dose.

If there is any discrepancy, you can address it with the doctor or nurse, or ask to see a supervisor.

If you have evidence that you received an empty injection, or a partial vaccine dose, but only noticed that after leaving the vaccination centre, do not worry.

Here in Malaysia, you can reach out to the ProtectHealth Corporation – a private entity created by Malaysia Health Ministry to manage the national COVID-19 vaccination programme.

  • Telephone : 03-8687-2525 / 2588
  • Email : vaksincovid@protecthealth.com.my

They will promptly address the issue – either giving you a top-up dose, or a new vaccine dose.

“You Wanna Kena Whacked?” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The maskless bully who threatened to “whack” people who asked him to put on a face mask will be charged in court!

Take a look at the two viral videos, and find out why this Covidiot will soon be charged in court!

 

Maskless Bully : “You Wanna Kena Whacked?”

In this viral video, a maskless bully wanted to buy food at this roadside stall, but became aggressive when confronted for not wearing his face mask.

He started cursing and threatening not just the stall owners, but also another customer in the video, “You wanna kena whacked?

The video naturally went viral on social media, and netizens soon identified him as Shyamalan Jaganathan, a 33-year old licensing consultant who once worked for the Echez Group.

Echez Group has since announced that Shyamalan has not worked with them since 2018, stating :

We want to express to you that this person does not work with us since 2018 and does not represent the values and principles of our company.

We have already taken the necessary measures so that he can no longer use our name in social networks.

Echez Group respects and promotes among its employees, collaborators, and associates the application of the Biosafety protocols required in each geography where we have presence.

When his MyKad and His LinkedIn profile became public, Shyamalan quickly deleted his LinkedIn account.

Unfortunately, that didn’t stop netizens from coming across and sharing a video of a previous encounter in which he was abusive to another gym user.

 

“You Wanna Kena Whacked” Maskless Bully To Be Charged!

The incident happened at Jalan Desa Bakti in Kuala Lumpur, at around 10:30 AM on 19 July 2021.

The stall owner’s daughter lodged a police report against Shyamalan a few hours after the incident.

The Brickfields police announced that they were investigating the matter under :

  • Section 506 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation
  • Regulation 17(1) of the Prevent and Control of Infectious Disease Regulations 2021 for breaking the Phase 1 SOP (not wearing a face mask)

On 20 July 2021, Deputy Brickfields OCPD Superintendent Basri Sagoni confirmed that they arrested Shyamalan near his house in Taman Desa Bakti at 8 PM last night.

On 21 July 2021, Brickfields District Police Chief Assistant Commissioner Anuar Omar said that the police obtained a one-day remand extension, and he will be charged tomorrow (22 July 2021) for criminal intimidation and not following the COVID-19 SOP.

He could receive up to two years of prison and/or a fine for criminal intimidation, as well as a compound for violating the SOP.

 

Maskless Bully : Why He’s A Danger To Society

Shyalaman is just one of the few but very vocal people who refuse to abide by COVID-19 precautions, in particular – wearing a face mask in public.

If he has COVID-19, he can easily spread it to other people simply by standing next to them. When he walked up to the man in the video, he was more than just physically threatening the other customer.

This is a real concern as the Delta variant of COVID-19 is capable of infecting people in 5 to 15 seconds, if you do not wear a face mask.

That is why it is critical that everyone must wear a face mask in public, preferably double-masked, and put on a face shield or some kind of eyewear if possible.

You should maintain a physical distance of 2-3 metres from other people if you can. Please don’t be a Covidiot like Shyamalan.

And definitely GET VACCINATED against COVID-19.

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

CITF just issued a statement stating that the walk-in vaccination details will be announced LATER.

Here is what you need to know!

 

Fake News : You Can Walk In For Vaccination From 1 August Onwards!

There are at least three viral messages circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that you can walk in and get vaccinated at any vaccination centre (PPV) from 1 August 2021 onwards.

I fact-checked that in my article – Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards? earlier, so we know they are fake news.

 

CITF : Walk-In Vaccination Details To Be Announced LATER!

Unfortunately, many people refused to believe those messages are false, and continued to share the fake news.

This is partly because of this 8TV video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin.

So on 19 July 2021, the Malaysia COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) issued a statement to clear the air. Here is a summary :

  1. The walk-in initiative is only for those who are left out and have not received their vaccine appointments by 1 August 2021.
  2. Individuals in KL and Selangor who have already registered will be given their appointments very soon.
  3. Individuals who have not registered are encouraged to registered as soon as possible.
  4. Details of this programme will be announced later, as not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be involved.

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Can you walk in and get your COVID-19 vaccination at any vaccination centre in Malaysia from 1 August onwards?

Take a look at the viral messages, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia From 1 August Onwards?

Two messages have gone viral and are being shared on various WhatsApp groups.

They both claim that anyone who have not received their COVID-19 vaccine can walk in and get vaccinated at any PPV, from 1 August onwards.

Important information. Please share. From Aug 1 anyone who has not received their vaccine can walk into any PPVs for their vaccination

For those who has not gotten their Vac Appointment, for Sel/KL only. Beginning 1Aug, walk in any PPV, any age.
1. MIECC Mines – Sinovac
2. PWTC- AZ
3. Sunway Pyramid CC – Pfizer
4. Uitm Seksyen 7 – sinovac
5. Uitm Puncak Alam – Sinovac

They are sometimes shared with this video of National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, saying that anyone can walk in for their COVID-19 vaccination from 1 August onwards.

 

Walk-In Vaccination In Malaysia : The Facts

The viral messages are not accurate, and here are the FACTS…

Fact #1 : Operation Surge Capacity Runs From 26 July – 1 August

On 16 July 2021, National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, announced Operation Surge Capacity.

This 5-day Operation Surge Capacity aims to give the adult population in KL and Selangor at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by 1 August 2021.

To vaccinate the remaining 1.3 million adult population in KL and Selangor, the CITF (COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force) will need to sustain 272,000 vaccinations per day.

Fact #2 : Walk-In Vaccination After Operation Surge Capacity

In a video that is often circulated with the viral message, Khairy Jamaluddin actually said that walk-in vaccination will only happen AFTER Operation Surge Capacity is completed.

So the actual date when people can walk-in and get their COVID-19 vaccination is predicated on the success of Operation Surge Capacity.

If Operation Surge Capacity is extended, then this option will likely be delayed.

Even if Operation Surge Capacity succeeds by 1 August, walk-in vaccination can only happen the next day – 2 August 2021.

So it’s best to WAIT for the official kick-off announcement, and not accept some random WhatsApp message at face value.

Fact #3 : Walk-In Vaccination Only In KL + Selangor

The first viral message also falsely suggests that anyone in Malaysia will be able to walk into any PPV to get vaccinated.

This walk-in vaccination option will only be available in KL and Selangor vaccination centres (PPVs) to “mop up anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor”.

Fact #4 : Walk-In Vaccination Also For Undocumented

Surprisingly, undocumented people in Malaysia will also be allowed to walk into any PPV in KL and Selangor to get vaccinated.

This is very good news, as it is important that EVERYONE gets vaccinated, irrespective of their status in Malaysia.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “This is so that we can ‘mop up’ anybody that has not received their first dose in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

Some people may not have been captured by the Statistics Department’s data, while there are those who are undocumented.

Fact #5 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Adults

On 17 July 2021, CITF kicked off walk-in vaccinations for senior citizens aged 60 years and above in KL and Selangor.

When they expand the walk-in programme after Operation Surge Capacity, it will be restricted to adults – those who are 18 years and above.

So the second message is WRONG in claiming that anyone of “any age” can walk into a PPV to get vaccinated.

Read more : Walk-In Vaccination in KL + Selangor Kicks Off!

Fact #6 : Walk-In Vaccination Only For Those Without Appointments

Another fact not mentioned by the first message – only those who do NOT have a vaccine appointment yet, will be allowed to walk into a PPV in KL or Selangor.

Khairy Jamaluddin said, “Those who have already received their appointment dates are advised to stick to their appointments. Do not walk in.

Fact #7 : Sinovac Will Only Be Used For Dose 2

On 15 July 2021, Malaysia Health Minister, Adam Baba, announced that Sinovac will no longer be used for new vaccinations, and the remaining stock would be used to complete current vaccinations.

Adham Baba said, “About half of the 16 million have already been distributed, so the rest will be used to cover second doses. For those who have yet to be vaccinated, they will receive the Pfizer vaccine.

Hence, the second viral message with the list of vaccination centres offering Sinovac for walk-in vaccinations is FALSE.

Fact #8 : CITF Confirmed This Fact Check

On 19 July 2021, JKJAV issued a statement by the COVID-19 Immunisation Task Force (CITF) addressing the viral messages :

  • the walk-in programme will be updated and announced LATER
  • not all vaccination centres (PPVs) will be open for walk-in vaccinations.

So there you have it – the definitive debunk of the two fake viral messages above – from JKJAV and CITF.

Can You Wear Slippers While Driving In Malaysia?

Can you wear slippers while driving a car in Malaysia? Here is what you need to know!

Updated @ 2021-07-17 : Added confirmation letter from JPJ

Originally posted @ 2021-07-15

 

Are Police Checking For Driving With Slippers In Malaysia?

A video went viral recently, showing a police officer stopping a man, and asking if he’s wearing slippers or shoes.

Many Malaysian netizens were shocked by video. Some speculated that the police are looking for a kick-back, while others said that it’s to check if people were going to work or having a joyride.

 

Can You Wear Slippers While Driving In Malaysia?

So can you wear slippers while driving in Malaysia?

That really depends on whether you are driving a personal vehicle, or a commercial vehicle.

Fact #1 : You Can Wear Slippers While Driving A Private Vehicle

There are no laws that forbid you from wearing slippers or sandals while driving a private vehicle.

However, wearing slippers or sandals while driving a commercial vehicle (like a lorry, bus or taxi) is an offence under the Commercial Vehicles Licensing Board Act 1987.

The person who recorded the video was a taxi driver. That’s why the police officer let the car in front of him go, but stopped to question him.

Fact #2 : Commercial Vehicle Drivers Must Wear Appropriate Attire

Drivers of commercial vehicles do not just have to wear proper shoes while driving, they have to be properly attired.

Section 15(b) of the Road Traffic Rules 1959 requires drivers of commercial vehicles to be properly attired.

What that means is really ambiguous, but in the past has included wearing slippers or sandals while driving.

JPJ confirmed that it is mandatory for drivers of commercial and public vehicles to wear fully-closed shoes. Those who do not can be fined under the Road Transportation Act 1987.

Fact #3 : Driving With Slippers Is Dangerous

Even though it’s legal to drive a private vehicle with slippers or sandals, I highly advise you NOT to do that.

Driving with slippers or sandals have been shown to increase the risk of accidents through :

  • increasing the time it takes to work the pedals.
  • delay your reaction time.
  • reduce the amount of force on the pedals.
  • getting lodged under the pedals

Even if you don’t get a ticket for not wearing proper shoes while driving, you could end up in a bad accident.

Please stop wearing slippers while driving!

Fact #4 : Taking Off Your Slippers / Shoes Is Also Dangerous!

For those who like to drive barefoot, please don’t do that either!

Taking off your shoes or slippers before driving is a recipe for disaster, as they can get lodged under the pedals.

Imagine trying to pump the brake pedal with your shoe or slipper lodged under it.

If you really, REALLY must drive barefoot, please place your footwear in the passenger’s compartment.

Fact Check : Fake Police Raid On Penang Condo?

A woman live-streamed a police raid on her condominium in Penang, claiming that they could be robbers posing as fake police officers.

Her livestream went viral. Find out what really happened, and what the facts really are!

 

Viral Video Of Fake Police Raid On Penang Condo???

On 12 July 2021, a Penang lady live-streamed a police raid on her condominium on Logan Road, claiming that they could be robbers posing as fake police officers.

It didn’t help that they were all in plainclothes and it was very late at night – about 11 PM.

It also did not help that fake news have been circulating on WhatsApp, claiming that robbers pretending to be government officials using fake warrants to rob people.

She refused to let them in, and live-streamed the entire face-off on Facebook.

 

Truth : Police Raid On Penang Condo Was Genuine, Not Fake!

The truth is the police raid on the Penang condo was REAL, not fake. They were not robbers, but genuine police officers.

The Nilai district police issued a statement on 13 July 2021, clarifying the incident.

On 12 July 2021, police officers from the Nilai Commercial Crime department, acting on Op Pelican information, went to the condominium unit on Logan Road, in Penang.

Accompanied by two fellow officers from the Dato Keramat police station, they were looking for a man to assist in their investigation concerning a case of fraud.

According to Nilai district police chief, Mohd Fazley Ab Rahman, they introduced themselves and presented their police identity cards, but the lady refused to let them in.

The video only showed one of the plainclothes officer wearing a yellow PDRM vest showing what appears to be his MyKad, and not a police ID.

Later, two Penang police officers in uniform arrived at her unit to assure her that the men were not robbers posing as fake police officers.

She then let them into her unit, but they did not locate the man inside. No arrest or seizures was made that night.

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

MKN amended their SOP for Phase 1 and Phase 2 states to allow busking in vaccination centres!

Here is what you need to know…

 

Busking : What Is It?

Busking is the act of performing in public places for gratuities – public donations.

This can be performed outdoors, or indoors, and is a popular form of public entertainment all over the world.

For example, here is Crash Metal – a busker showing off his juggling skills outside of ICC Sydney.

 

MKN Now Allows Busking In Vaccination Centres (PPV)!

Since the pandemic started, buskers have been blocked from performing, and this has caused a complete loss of livelihood for these street performers.

After all, they need to perform publicly to make a living – literally live hand-to-mouth from each performance.

In a surprise move, the MKN released updated SOPs for Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the COVID-19 Recovery Plan, in which the only change was to ALLOW indoor and outdoor busking at COVID-19 vaccination centres.

This will allow buskers the opportunity to perform publicly again, for a captive crowd (literally!)

If you see buskers at your vaccination centre, please show them some support! Just make sure you keep your distance and wear a face mask!

Again, please note that the new SOP only allows busking at vaccination centres – they are still not allowed in other public places.

Also, this only applies to Phase 1 and Phase 2 states, and DO NOT APPLY to EMCO areas.

MKN likely limited busking activities to vaccination centres where there are police and RELA volunteers who can control their physical distancing.

Even so, this is a great opportunity for buskers, and I wish them all the best. I really miss the Blues Hat band. These guys are AWESOME!

Dell UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) : All You Need To Know!

Dell just introduced the UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) for the new Work From Home normal!

Here is what you need to know about the new Dell WB7022 UltraSharp Webcam!

 

Dell UltraSharp Webcam (WB7022) : All You Need To Know!

More than 18 months into the COVID-19 pandemic, the Work From Home (WFH) normal appears to be here to stay, at least for now.

To ensure that those who need to remotely work have the best possible video conferencing webcam, Dell just introduced the UltraSharp Webcam.

With nine patent-pending technologies, the Dell UltraSharp Webcam offers 4K image quality, built-in AI tracking and other video conferencing features.

4K Webcam With World’s Best Image Quality

Dell claims that the UltraSharp Webcam offers the world’s best image quality, courtesy of the large 4K Sony STARVIS CMOS sensor and the multi-element lens that captures more light to deliver “crystal-clear video”.

It supports frame rates of 24 and 30 fps at the full 4K UHD resolution. It also supports the higher 60 fps frame rate, at the lower 1080p and 720p resolutions.

It’s not just about the hardware. It’s also about the software embedded into the UltraSharp Webcam.

Its Digital Overlap HDR capability lets the Dell UltraSharp Webcam preserve true-to-life colours and balance exposure.

Meanwhile, its 2D/3D video noise reduction capability eliminates grainy images, making you look good even in low light conditions.

AI Auto-Framing

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam has AI Auto-Framing capability built-in. This feature uses Artificial Intelligence to keep you focused and centred in the frame.

You don’t have to manually adjust the webcam. It will track your movements and shift the frame to keep you centered, even if you stand up!

5X Digital Zoom + Three Fields of View

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam supports up to 5X digital zoom, as well as three fields of view – 65°, 78° and 90°.

This allows you to fit multiple people in the same conference call, or focus exclusively on you in a crowded place.

Smart Security Features

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam supports Windows Hello, allowing you to sign-in quickly and securely usual facial recognition.

It also has Dell ExpressSign-in capability built-in, allowing Dell PCs to detect your presence as you approach and automatically log you out when you step away, offering you an extra level of security.

Finally, it comes with a magnetic privacy cover that securely snaps onto the lens, or the back of the webcam.

Webcam Mounting Solutions

The Dell UltraSharp Webcam comes with two mounts in the box :

  • a magnetic mount
  • a tripod adaptor

The magnetic mount makes it easy to attach to the top of any desktop or laptop monitor, without obscuring the display.

And if you need to mount it on a tripod, simply slide the webcam off the magnetic mount and slide it into the tripod adaptor!

Was US Soldier Caught Spreading COVID-19 In Wuhan?

Was a US soldier caught spreading COVID-19 in Wuhan by smearing his saliva in a train?

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Was US Soldier Caught Spreading COVID-19 In Wuhan?

A video of an American soldier smearing his saliva on a train pole is circulating on social media, accompanied by this message :

Just to share this clip and its comments from China:

The surveillance cameras in Wuhan have a road map of the US soldiers and a video record of the time.

The American soldier had put on a mask during the military games. Began to spread the epidemic virus by subway. 

If you look at the movement of that hand carefully, from the mouth to the armrest, you will know the evil and evil heart of Americans.

Poor Wuhan citizens are infected with the ruthless epidemic virus. 

The viral message implies that the Chinese have determined that Patient Zero is an American soldier who attended the 2019 Military World Games that was held in Wuhan, China from 18 to 27 October 2019.

It also implies that the Americans brought COVID-19 to Wuhan, and used one of their soldiers to spread it to the Chinese. And the video is the evidence.

Even the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s spokesperson Zhao Lijian pushed the same fake claim, saying, “When did patient zero begin in the US? It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan!

Well, all that is HOGWASH. Let us show you why…

 

US Soldier Spreading COVID-19 In Wuhan Hoax Debunked!

The truth is the video was recorded on 9 March 2020 in a Belgian subway, not October 2019 in Wuhan.

The man in the video was not a US soldier, but an intoxicated Belgian who licked his finger and rubbed it on the subway pole.

He was later arrested for doing that, and the train removed and disinfected.

This is just another piece of Chinese propaganda trying to shift the blame for the COVID-19 pandemic to the United States.

Please be wary of such fake news. China has been actively creating and sharing these fake videos and stories on social media.

Share this with your family and friends, so they won’t get fooled!

 

Why Is China Pushing This Fake US Soldier COVID-19 Story?

With China’s aggressive foreign policy moves in recent years, it is not uncommon to see fake pro-China, anti-America stories being created and shared.

Many believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas, and drown out negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea..

China has also been blamed for not handling the initial COVID-19 epidemic better, and unfairly – for being the origin of this new virus.

Hence, they have been trying their best to deflect blame by casting aspersions unto others, using aggressive Wolf Warrior diplomacy tactics, propaganda outlets like GlobalTimes and CTGN, and their 50 Cent Army.

MITEC Vaccination Centre : A Pictorial Guide!

I would like to thank Zoey Lee and her sister for providing the pictures and information for this pictorial guide.

Dropping Off + Parking!

As per the video guide above, if you need to drop off your vaccine dependents, please do so at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you are taking a taxi or e-hailing ride, make sure they drop you off at the South entrance of MITEC.

If you need to park your car, public parking is available near the MITEC South entrance – turn left into the MITEC basement car park.

Where To Go?

Whether you get dropped off, or park in the basement, make sure you head to the South entrance of MITEC.

You will need to check in using MySejahtera and scan your forehead temperature, as usual.

You will need to follow the guided path of Hall 03 (Dewan 03).

Try not to go too early. If you are early, you will be asked to wait in a waiting area until your time slot is called.

Fortunately, this waiting area is fully air-conditioned, unlike WTCKL.

MITEC Hall 3 has two entrances – one for those taking the 1st Dose, and one for those taking the 2nd Dose.

There will be volunteers ushering you, but make sure you enter the right entrance.

On entering MITEC Hall 3, you will be given a queue number, and your vaccination consent forms.

Then you will be seated in a large waiting area, where you can then fill in the consent forms. Do NOT sign the consent forms yet.

Because there are no tables, you should bring something stiff to write on (like a book), and a pen.

When your queue number is called, note the Counter number and head to the Registration and Consent area.

Go to your assigned Counter, where a volunteer will check your identification (MyKad or Passport) and register you.

If you have MySejahtera, you will be asked to scan the QR code to log that you have officially come in to be vaccinated.

There will also be a doctor at the same counter to explain the risks and benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

You will have the opportunity to ask the doctor any questions about the vaccination, and your medication. If you brought your medication, you may present it to the doctor.

After your queries are satisfied, you may then sign the consent forms, and the doctor will counter sign them.

After signing the consent forms, you will be assigned Station A or Station B by the volunteer.

Head to the Vaccination area, according to the assigned Station.

You will be seated in the waiting area to wait for your turn.

When your queue number is called, head to the assigned vaccination room, to receive your COVID-19 vaccine.

The doctor / nurse administering the vaccine will show you the vial or vaccine label, so you know what vaccine you are receiving.

The doctor / nurse will also show you the syringe to confirm that it has the right amount of vaccine.

The empty syringe will also be shown to you after you receive your vaccination.

Recommended : How To Read The Volume Of LDV Syringe Correctly?

After vaccination, you will be asked to wait in a small holding area until you are called to the counter to submit your consent forms and receive your vaccination card.

Then you will be ushered to the Observation Area, where you will need to sit for 15 to 30 minutes.

If you are worried about any severe allergic reaction to the vaccine, you can sit a little while longer.

After that, you can leave the MITEC vaccination centre, and go home!

Don’t forget to take some pictures, and share with your friends and family on social media!

 

After Leaving MITEC : Post-Vaccination Check List

After receiving your COVID-19 vaccination, you are FREE to do anything you want. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on your diet and daily life.

You can expect some mild side effects – these are signs of your immune system learning how to fight against COVID-19.

Fact Check : Amazing Robot Dancers At Shanghai Disneyland!

Did China create these amazing robot dancers at the Shanghai Disneyland, beating even the Japanese?

Watch the viral clip for yourself, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : China Created Classic Robot Dancers At Shanghai Disneyland!

Here is the video that countless people have been sharing on social media and even on YouTube. It is often paired with a short explanation in (broken) English.

This classic dance is only created in China and broadcast in Shanghai Disneyland. They are not female dance artists, but all robots made in China.

The performance time is only about 5 minutes, but the ticket queue time takes 4 hours , The ticket price is 499 yuan.

It has surpassed Japan in complexity, and saw its perfect facial expressions. Send this video to everyone to watch, let us enjoy together…

 

Classic Robot Dancers At Shanghai Disneyland : The Truth

The agility and grace of these classic robot dancers at Shanghai Disneyland is amazing.

The less gullible would point out that it is something you would only expect from professional human dancers, and they would be right.

Fact #1 : That Is A Video Of A CBDF Competition

That is actually a video clip from one of the many competitions organised and broadcast by the CBDF (Chinese Ballroom Dance Federation).

Although we cannot ascertain who the dancers are, you can see the CBDF logo in the background, at 4:06 and 4:41.

No robot made today can match their agility and grace.

Fact #2 : 499 Yuan Was The Entry Price To Shanghai Disneyland

The fake story claimed that the ticket to watch this performance costs 499 Yuan – about US$73 / £55 / RM303. That would be ridiculously exorbitant for a single show.

In truth, that was the cost of an entry ticket to the Shanghai Disneyland when it first opened in February 2016.

Since 6 June 2018, it has been priced at 399 Yuan (off-peak), 575 Yuan (peak) and 665 Yuan (peak holiday).

Fact #3 : Disneyland Does Not Charge Extra To Watch Certain Shows

Anyone who has been to Disneyland knows that the entry fee is pricey. That’s because it covers all rides and shows inside Disneyland.

You only need to pay for food and drinks, and arcade games. Or if you opt to purchase Disney Fastpasses (Fastpass, FastPass+, MaxPass) to bypass long queues at popular rides or shows.

Otherwise, all rides and shows are free to enjoy once you enter Disneyland.

Fact #4 : That Is Not The Only Fake Video Of Chinese Robot Dancers

That is not the only fake video of Chinese robot dancers.

This one circulated earlier, claiming to be of a female robot dancer that beats Japanese made-robots.

In this example, they took the video clip from the 2018 World Dance Sport Federation Championship in Lithuania…

Who Would Create Fake Stories About Robot Dancers?

With China’s aggressive foreign stance in recent years, it is not uncommon to see such fake stories being created and shared.

Some believe it’s part of a concerted attempt to burnish China’s image overseas.

Others believe the many fake stories are being created to drown out the negative coverage of China’s controversial Belt and Road Initiative, and their aggressive moves in the South China Sea.

Whatever the reasons may be, it is our duty as global citizens to stop the proliferation of such fake stories.

Please share this fact check with your friends, so they know the truth!

AstraZeneca 2.0 Over In 1 Hour! More Doses In July!

The AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine registration was over in just over an hour after it was opened up to people below 60 years of age! But don’t worry… more AstraZeneca vaccine doses are coming in July!

 

AstraZeneca 2.0 Doses Snapped Up In 1 Hour!

The AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine registration for people below 60 years of age got off on a rough start, with a 15 minute delay over technical issues.

When it reloaded with new links, some people were still loading the old links and got stuck because they keep getting the error message that the programme was for 60 years and older.

Others who loaded the new links immediately had trouble loading the location and time slots, leading to frustrated banging of keyboards and phone displays.

Even though people tried with multiple devices – smartphones, tablets and computers – many could not load the list of available slots.

Just over an hour after the AstraZeneca 2.0 vaccine registration programme started, JKJAV – the Special Committee  on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply – announced that all 1 million doses were taken up.

This was a far greater response than the first round, where only 268,800 doses were taken up in 3.5 hours.

 

AstraZeneca 2.0 Over, More Doses Coming In July!

Many people have since expressed great frustration and disappointment at not snagging one of the million doses in the AstraZeneca 2.0 programme.

But don’t worry. National Immunisation Programme Coordinating Minister, Khairy Jamaluddin, just announced that 600,000 more AstraZeneca doses will arrive in Malaysia in July 2021.

So you can look forward to an AstraZeneca 3.0 vaccine registration programme in July!

Vaccine Underdose : What Should You Watch Out For?

A potential problem COVID-19 vaccination is getting an underdose. Basically, less vaccine than what we are supposed to get.

Find out what vaccine underdose is all about, and how to avoid it!

 

Vaccine Underdose : What Is It?

A vaccine underdose is what happens when you receive less than the recommended dose of a vaccine.

This can happen by accident, or intentionally, but the end result is the same – you may end up with insufficient vaccine, or none at all.

Recently, two people reported that they received an underdose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine. Anoogrehan Manoharan noticed it when he looked back at a video he took.

In his case, it seems pretty obvious that he received a vaccine underdose. He received a second vaccination – the full recommended dose four days later.

 

Vaccine Underdose : How Could It Happen?

There is always the possibility of intentional underdose by someone who is secretly anti-vaccination.

But accidental vaccine underdose can happen, especially in high-volume vaccinations.

Injection Volume Mix-Up

Different COVID-19 vaccines may have different injection volumes, as the table below shows.

This error can happen in vaccination centres that have more than one COVID-19 vaccine at hand

Of course, this obviously did not happen at the AstraZeneca vaccination centre, because they only deal exclusively with the Vaxzevria vaccine.

Vaccines Dose Volume
Pfizer COMIRNATY 0.3 ml
AstraZeneca Vaxzevria 0.5 ml
Sinovac CoronaVac 0.5 ml

Preparation Error

Some COVID-19 vaccines – like the Pfizer vaccine – must be mixed with saline and then drawn out into syringes for administration.

It has happened before that the vial was mistakenly filled with saline TWICE, leading to highly diluted doses.

This can happen if one staff member pre-fills the vials with saline, but is called away; and another staff member continues but does not realise that the vials have already been filled with saline.

Accidental Wastage

The nurse or doctor may have accidentally depressed the plunger while handling the syringe, without realising it.

This could happen while switching needles, or just before injecting it into the vaccine recipient.

They are supposed to check before injecting the vaccine, but mistakes can happen, especially if they are tired or overworked.

Low Dead Volume Syringe

To extract the maximum number of doses per vial, healthcare workers are using special low dead-volume (LDV) syringes.

These LDV syringes have longer plunger heads (the black rubber part). What we may think is just 0.3 ml is, in reality, 0.5 ml on an LDV syringe.

This may mislead people into thinking that they received less than the actual dose of the vaccine.

 

Vaccine Underdose : How To Prevent It?

There are a few ways to prevent vaccine underdose.

  1. Use only one vaccine at each vaccination centre.
  2. If a vaccination centre should offer multiple vaccine options, then vaccination teams should be exclusively trained with one vaccine and not switch between vaccines.
  3. Vaccine doses should ideally be pre-filled and labelled (with date, time of preparation and recommended volume) and shown to the vaccine recipient before administration.
  4. Vaccine recipients should ask to see the syringe, and double-check the volume and preparation date, before receiving the vaccination.

  1. Vaccine recipients should also ask to record a video of the vaccination process.
  2. After the vaccine dose is injected into the recipient, the empty syringe should be shown to the vaccine recipient.
  3. If manpower permits, a third person – nurse or compliance officer – should be present to witness and help double-check the vaccine dose in each syringe, as well as the vaccination process.

 

Vaccine Underdose : What Should You Do?

If you believe you received an underdose of your COVID-19 vaccine, you should reach out to the healthcare provider who administered the vaccine.

Ideally, you should be vaccinated again with the correct dose; or a “top-up dose”, if they are able to determine the shortfall.

Here in Malaysia, you can reach out to the ProtectHealth Corporation – a private entity created by Malaysia Health Ministry to manage the national COVID-19 vaccination programme.

Fact Check : Palestinian Home Occupied By Brooklyn Couple?

Did a couple from Brooklyn occupy a home that used to be owned by an elderly Palestinian couple?

Take a look at the photo that Michael Moore made viral, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : This Palestinian Home Was Occupied By Brooklyn Couple!

This photo was shared several times during the recent conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, but it only went viral after Michael Moore posted it on his Facebook wall.

His Facebook post did not specifically address the couple, so it looked like he only used the photo because it fitted his narrative.

If someone took/stole your home right now, and moved you out because a theocracy ordered it — or what if this same theocracy bulldozed your home and tossed you out into a field and told you and your children to GTF outta here — what would YOUR response be?

What would you have the moral right to do about it? And to be perfectly clear, I don’t care if it was a Christian Fascist German soldier in 1941 forcibly removing you from your home, or an American bank in 2008 forcibly removing you and kicking you to the curb while taking your home — it’s gut-check time, folks (and yes, I mean you too, fellow pacifists):

What would you have the moral and human right and DUTY to do about it, to respond to it, to stop it? And would the rest of the world just stand by and let you suffer as it so often does?

When do we all just put a stop to this, to grind the gears of the machine to a complete halt and replace the plutocracy (we’re not a democracy), the theocracy (you’re not a democracy), and any racial, religious or corporate supremacy with TRUE democracy, FULL human rights, and love?

 

Fact Check : Palestinian Home Occupied By Brooklyn Couple?

This is a rather iconic photo – a Palestinian couple looking at what used to be their ancestral home, now occupied by an Israeli couple. That was probably why Michael Moore chose it.

We decided to investigate the photo, and here was what we found…

Fact #1 : The Photo Was Taken In Israel

This photo was taken in the village of Ijzim, about 30 minutes south of Haifa in Israel.

Just to be clear, Ijzim is not in the West Bank. Nor is it in the Gaza Strip.

Fact #2 : Ijzim Was Depopulated In 1948

Israel captured Ijzim during the 1948 War, and the majority of the villagers fled or were expelled during the Palestinian Nakba (Catastrophe).

The Israelis quickly demolished the Arab houses to make way for permanent Jewish settlements.

Photo credit : Fred Csasznik – Front cover of The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem by Benny Morris, Cambridge University Press 1989.

Fact #3 : The Photo Was Taken In 2020

Despite what people may say, this photo was not taken recently. It was taken and published a year ago – in May 2020.

The last time the elderly Palestinian couple was in Ijzim was 72 years ago.

Fact #4 : The House Was Not The Original Home

The house in the picture was not the original home of the elderly Palestinian couple.

The original home, which belonged to the Palestinian man’s father, was demolished, and a new home built on the land.

Fact #5 : It Was Part Of An Al-Jazeera Project

In May 2020, Najwan Simri of Al Jazeera took an elderly Palestinian couple to visit their original homes and to meet their current Israeli residents.

Here is the Al Jazeera video clip, as well as an English translation.

Some towns and cities inside the Green Line will become the hope of those in the diaspora. But they will also become a station of refuge for others.

Here lives a family uprooted from a nearby village. We had an appointment with Hajjeh Im Samir to accompany her there. Her [ailing] husband insisted on coming with us because he said the air of Ijzim is the best cure.

Despite its beauty, the road there seems desolate as if it gets you to the place but doesn’t take you there. Eagerly, Im Samir organizes our tour for us and tells us the names of the [Palestinian] owners of the houses.

Our first stop is God’s house. Its stones have been preserved as they were. Alone, the colors of its locked doors change each time the dryness of the seasons intensifies.

Here, Abu Samir does not stay in the car because this stop [station] is the location for which he has most longed in order to banish the other stations of his life. “This was our house, my father’s house. After the ‘48 wars, the Jews occupied it.”

After a few minutes, the residents of the house come out to [the gate]. They ask us what we want. We say, this is the owner of the house; how do you feel living in a house built on the wreckage of his house? [The answer] Frankly, I don’t feel anything. I am very happy. Living here is very enjoyable.

How strange is the distance between the owner of the house and he who is occupying it. How strange is the irony between he who has to stand inside the gate and he who must stand outside the gate. How strong Abu Samir is! For other uprooted people have refused to accompany us [on our tour]. One of them told us that he cannot bear to glimpse through the window of his father’s house a foreigner living there.

And that [glimpse] could possibly be of a strange symbol, like [what is glimpsed through the window] of a stolen [Palestinian] school converted into a temple with an emblem [the flag of Israel] that is not as old as the memory of the stones of the school.

And so, an extreme picture! It is said that the passage of time helps in forgetting, but, in the Palestinian case, it seems that the equation of time is different and that the years are merely a number. Rather, the longer the banishment of the Palestinians is, the more they remember.

– This is Najwan Simri, reporting from the depopulated village of Ijzim for Al Jazeera.

Fact #6 : No Evidence The Couple Was From Brooklyn

The most direct source was Al Jazeera, and even they did not identify the Israeli couple, much less confirmed that they were from Brooklyn, New York City.

Despite my extensive searching, I could find no source of this claim. None of the earlier posts using this picture – in May to June 2020 – mentioned that the Israeli couple were from Brooklyn.

Therefore, it is highly likely that their Brooklyn origin was completely bogus.

Why This Man Received A FAKE COVID-19 Vaccination!

The viral video of a man receiving a FAKE COVID-19 vaccination is actually REAL!

Take a look at the viral video, and a video of what subsequently happened after the fake COVID-19 vaccination, and find out WHY he was given the fake shot!

 

This Man Received A Fake COVID-19 Vaccination!

After we debunked the fake COVID-19 vaccine injection in Malaysia, we were asked to investigate the viral video of a man in a red Levi’s t-shirt getting a fake COVID-19 vaccination.

After investigating the video, we can confirm that the man did indeed receive a fake COVID-19 vaccination.

In the video, the doctor / nurse can be seen inserting the needle into his shoulder, and then removing it without pushing the plunger in.

If you look closely at the black plunger head, you can see that it never moves in the video.

 

Why This Man Received A FAKE COVID-19 Vaccination!

So why did this man receive a fake COVID-19 vaccination? Was this doctor or nurse an antivaxxer?

Or is this part of a government plan to give people a false sense of hope after running out of COVID-19 vaccines?

Here is what we know so far…

Fact #1 : This Happened In Ecuador

For the record, this video was not recorded in India or Malaysia, or heck – anywhere in Asia.

It was recorded at the Mucho Lote Vaccination Centre in Guayaquil, Ecuador on Sunday, 25 April 2021.

Fact #2 : The Man Was NOT Supposed To Be Vaccinated

From what we can gather, this 54 year-old man was not supposed to be vaccinated.

He allegedly bribed the nurse to cut the queue, essentially getting his COVID-19 vaccination ahead of his turn.

However, the nurse gave him a fake injection instead, literally poking a needle in his shoulder without actually injecting anything.

This is likely because vaccine doses are extremely limited, and would be under close supervision. A missing dose would have been noticed.

Fact #3 : They Were Caught + Arrested

According to Primicias, they were both caught, and the man was escorted out of the vaccination centre. The nurse, however, was arrested on the spot.

The Ecuador Minister of Health, Dr. Camilo Salinas Ochoa confirmed the case, stating that they identified “the nurse and the patient”.

The Ecuador Secretary General of the Presidency, Jorge Wated Reshuan confirmed that the nurse was arrested.

The man who recorded the video of himself receiving the fake vaccination was also arrested.

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection In Malaysia Debunked!

A video of a lady receiving a fake COVID-19 vaccine injection in Malaysia went viral on social media yesterday.

Take a look at the FULL VIDEO, and find out why this is yet another fake story on social media!

 

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection? What’s Going On?

There have been stories and even videos of fake COVID-19 vaccinations, purportedly by healthcare workers who are anti-vaccination.

Yesterday, a short video of about 24 seconds went viral on social media, especially WhatsApp.

It showed a nurse failing to give an elderly lady her COVID-19 vaccine injection, by removing the syringe without pushing the plunger in!

On closer examination, you can see that the syringe actually detached from the needle, which the nurse then removed.

The video is sometimes accompanied by an audio message, of a man who claimed that he is a friend of the man heard on the video.

He claimed that his friend’s mother did not receive her COVID-19 vaccine injection, and warned that there have been many cases of fake vaccinations like this.

 

Fake COVID-19 Vaccine Injection In Malaysia Debunked!

It was obvious from the video that the syringe detached from the needle, and therefore the shot was wasted.

It would have been obvious to everyone there, and the nurse would have to redo the vaccination.

However, this case would have been impossible to debunk, if we did not have the full video which we fortunately we able to obtain today.

The original viral video only showed the first vaccination attempt. The full video showed that a different nurse then attempted the vaccination again.

In these screenshots of the video above, you can see that the nurse inserted a new syringe and needle, checked for blood before pushing the plunger in completely (note the position of the black plunger head).

So this is definitive proof that there was no fake injection of the COVID-19 vaccine, at least not in this case.

The first vaccination attempt failed, but there was a second vaccination attempt which succeeded. She received her COVID-19 vaccination.

The original shorter video and the accompanying audio message are FAKE NEWS.

Ryan’s Autism Journey – Be The Miracle!

In support of Autism Awareness Month, I want to share with all of you – Ryan’s Autism Journey, and how your child can be the miracle too!

Updated @ 2021-05-05 : Added credit to the great therapists who helped Ryan, and more of my thoughts.

Originally posted @ 2021-04-30

 

Ryan’s Autism Journey : Be The Miracle!

It’s been a full decade since my son, Ryan, was diagnosed with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder), just 3 months shy of his second birthday.

Today, he’s like any other kid his age. He goes to a normal school, keeps up with his studies, and can interact with people pretty normally.

Take a look at how Ryan went from being completely non-verbal, with poor motor skills and no eye contact, to the boy he is today.

Look at how far he has come along in the last 10 years. Your child too can become your miracle!

 

Ryan’s Autism Journey : How He Became Our Miracle!

I’m sorry, but your child exhibits behaviours consistent with the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

That is something no parent ever wants to hear. That is something no parent deserves to hear. But it is what it is.

It would explain his inability to speak or stay still, his lack of eye contact, repetitive behaviours, screaming fits at night (night terrors), etc.

Acceptance

IMHO, acceptance was KEY to our success.

Over the years, many people confided in me how their friends or relatives refused to acknowledge the diagnosis, which prevents them from moving to the next stage – helping the child.

If it helps, ignore the label. The diagnosis really doesn’t matter.

All you need to know is that your child is missing key milestones, and he/she needs help. That is all that matters.

Every Day Counts

Everyone goes through the stages of grief when you get the diagnosis. But time is of essence. Every day counts.

So I decided right away to speed right through to acceptance, and get right down to work.

That meant reading up on the latest studies and treatments, and getting urgent referrals to the best doctors and therapists in the area.

It may be somewhat easier for me, because I already underwent a similar baptism of fire when my wife had two strokes just 1.5 years earlier.

So I would understand if you may have trouble moving past this stage. If I may offer a personal suggestion, try focusing on the fact that your child urgently needs your help.

How can we not fight for Ryan???

Neuroplasticity

It soon became clear that the key was THERAPY, and the earlier he started, the better; because young brains are especially “plastic”

Neuroplasticity – the ability of our brains to “rewire” itself – is how stroke patients regain function through therapy, and it’s the same reason why therapy works in children with ASD.

The key is to start therapy as early as possible, to take advantage of the developing brain of young children, which is highly plastic.

You don’t even have to wait for a diagnosis. As our developmental paediatrician, Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan, once told me – as long as a child has developmental issues, therapy should begin.

Recommended : Autism + Special Needs Q&A With Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan

The writer with Dr. Rajini Sarvananthan

Therapy, Therapy, Therapy

We put Ryan on occupational therapy with Madam Teo Lee Fun to work on his sensory and behavioural issues, as well as his fine and gross motor skills.

We also put Ryan on speech therapy with Dr. Cindy Lian, to help him learn to speak, and later, to improve his pronunciation.

Finally, we managed to get a slot in an Early Intervention Programme – Bridges EIP – for two hour sessions, twice a week.

This is an incredibly useful programme, where special need kids are taught cognitive skills at the table for about 30 minutes, followed by 15-20 minutes of gross motor activities.

Then they learn to eat by themselves, and interact with other children during snack time. After that, they usually have some kind of art and craft activity, and end with singing.

Many thanks to great teachers like Jeremy Yong, Rachel and Lois Fu!

Therapy Is Brain Exercise

Therapy is literally brain exercise. The harder you exercise, the better you get.

The weekly therapy sessions alone are NOT ENOUGH.

We not only made sure we do not skip therapy sessions, we made sure we attended every session ourselves.

Why? So that we can learn to perform the same therapies, and repeat them at home. The key is to repeat, repeat, repeat at home.

Even if you are rich enough to afford daily sessions, that still amounts to just a few hours a week. It cannot beat parents teaching their kids at home too.

Don’t Give Up

Looking back at my records now, it looks like Ryan did not improve much for quite some time – at least 1.5 years.

But I never considered stopping his therapies, even as I watched other parents give up to try alternative treatments.

As expensive in money and time as they are – I attended most of them, and we repeated the therapies at home – I understood that therapies are literally the only proven treatment for ASD.

Then suddenly, Ryan started to show improvements, and by golly, when that happened, it just kept snowballing.

In just 1.5 years, he went from speaking a few words with awkward motor skills, to normal speech and mastering the waveboard in just two weeks!

He improved so much, we ended up sending him to a Chinese school – to keep pushing the envelope.

He is now in a public school, where he even won an award for being the most improved student in his class!

Don’t Chase After Miracles!

To parents with children on the spectrum, please don’t fall for what’s easy and what’s miraculous.

Biomedical treatments that promise quick solutions, or supplements that promise a fast cure – they are all enticing, I’m sure.

But don’t listen to what they have to sell. Find out what WORKS, and seek advice from those who actually SUCCEEDED.

Don’t chase after miracles. BE THE MIRACLE!

No Special Treatment

This is not part of therapy, it’s just common sense.

Don’t pamper or coddle your child, or treat him/her differently from the other siblings.

We made the conscious choice of making sure Ryan is treated no differently from his siblings.

Not only is he FULLY VACCINATED, he has NO SPECIAL DIET / SUPPLEMENTS, and certainly NO PASSES for bad behaviour.

We are not going to be here forever. If we want him to be fully independent as an adult, he has to learn to eat, drink and behave like everyone else.

 

Ryan’s Autism Journey : Why It’s Important To Speak Up

While we are still working with him on his social skills, it truly is amazing how far we have come in the last ten years.

I spent hours creating the video and writing this article, because it is important for those who have succeeded to lend a hand, and help those who are struggling to understand ASD, much less cope with the enormity of the task at hand.

I hope Ryan’s journey will inspire all of you to persevere and trust in the evidence, trust in the science.

He did it, and so can your child.

All we ask is that when you succeed, you too will lend a helping hand to other parents, and a voice for other children on the spectrum.

Thank you!

What Is The Process At The COVID-19 Vaccination Centre?

Now that the public COVID-19 vaccination has kicked off, here is what YOU NEED TO KNOW before you head to the vaccination centre!

Please share this out with your family and friends, so they know what to expect!

 

What Is The Process At The COVID-19 Vaccination Centre?

The Special Committee on COVID-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) has kindly provided this video showing you the process at the COVID-19 vaccination centre.

Unfortunately, it is in Mandarin, but it comes with Bahasa Malaysia subtitles, and we added our own English subtitles.

 

On Receiving Your COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment

When you have been selected to receive your free COVID-19 vaccination, you will be informed through MySejahtera (with a notification in your smartphone) as well as an SMS.

You will be told WHEN and WHERE you will receive the vaccination. You will have 48 hours to accept or reject it.

If you fail to respond, it will be automatically rejected and you will be rescheduled for another appointment.

Children of senior citizens who need help to get to the vaccination centre can obtain police permission to travel interstate to help them.

If you want to vaccinate together with your spouse or dependents, you can request to do so.

After accepting the vaccination appointment, please make sure you continue to take whatever medications have been prescribed to you.

DO NOT STOP TAKING YOUR MEDICATIONS.

 

Before Heading To COVID-19 Vaccination Centre

On the day of your COVID-19 vaccination, please go through this “checklist” before heading to the vaccination centre :

  1. Wear loose and comfortable clothes.
  2. Have a good meal and drink water.
  3. Make sure you do not have a fever, or any other flu-like symptoms.
  4. Bring your smartphone with MySejahtera installed, and your identification – MyKad or passport.
  5. If you have medications for your pre-existing conditions, please bring them too.
  6. Make sure you wear a face mask when you leave your house.

 

At The COVID-19 Vaccination Centre

Here is the entire process you should expect when you arrive at the COVID-19 vaccination centre :

Step 1 : Temperature Check And Triage.

Head to the first counter, where an officer will quickly scan your body temperature, to ensure that you have no fever; before verifying that your name is in the list.

You will only be allowed into the COVID-19 vaccination if you have normal temperature. Otherwise, you will be rejected at this point, and your appointment rescheduled.

Step 2 : Scan Your MySejahtera

At the second counter, you will be asked to scan the vaccination centre’s QR code using MySejahtera. This is to confirm that you have now arrived at the vaccination centre.

Step 3 : Fill + Sign Your Consent Forms

At the third counter, you will be given two copies of the consent form to fill and sign. There will be four questions :

  1. Do you have a history of side effects from vaccination?
  2. Do you have severe allergies?
  3. Are you pregnant?
  4. Are you breastfeeding?

If you have any questions, you can ask the attending doctor. Otherwise, sign the consent forms.

Step 4 : Verification

Bring your consent forms to the fourth counter, where you will be asked to verify your name, your MyKad or passport number, and your MySejahtera confirmation number.

Step 5 : Waiting Room

You will now be ushered to a waiting room, with physically-distanced seating.

You may be given a waiting card, or your name will be called when it is your turn.

Step 6 : Vaccination

Once it’s your turn, you will be taken into an enclosed room, where a healthcare worker will administer the vaccine.

The vaccine – which can be either Pfizer COMIRNATY or Sinovac CoronaVac at this time – is administered intramuscularly into your shoulder – in the deltoid muscle.

The healthcare worker will ask you which shoulder you would prefer to be injected. Opt for your non-dominant arm.

  • If you are right-handed, ask to be injected in the left shoulder.
  • If you are left-handed, ask to be injected in the right shoulder.

This is because the vaccine may cause some soreness in the shoulder that’s injected.

The injection is no different from other intramuscular injections you have received in the past. So think happy thoughts – there is much less pain if your muscle is relaxed.

Step 7 : Side Effect Briefing

After you received your first vaccine dose, you will be briefed by a healthcare worker on what side effects you can expect.

If you notice any significant side effects, you can report them in MySejahtera.

Then you will be issued a vaccination card, with the date and time of your next COVID-19 vaccination dose.

Both Pfizer COMIRNATY or Sinovac CoronaVac vaccines require two doses.

Step 8 : Monitoring

Finally, you will be asked to stay for at least 15-30 minutes, so the doctors can monitor you for any acute side effects.

At this time, you will have the opportunity to take photos to encourage your family and friends to vaccinate themselves against COVID-19.

Feel free to take as many shots as you wish, and SHARE THEM on social media!

After waiting for 15-30 minutes, you can go home. It’s that simple!

 

Register For Your COVID-19 Vaccination Today!

If you have not already done so, please register for your FREE COVID-19 vaccination through :

  1. The MySejahtera app – a future update will introduce a button to register for an appointment.
  2. The Vaksin COVID website.
  3. The telephone hotline : 1800-888-828
  4. Manually at health clinics, hospitals and private clinics
  5. House-to-house registration at targeted rural areas for senior citizens.

Gone In 90 Minutes : Tanker Spills 20,000 Litres Of Oil!

A tanker just hit the side of the Juru toll, spilling 20,000 litres of oil!

This is why tanker drivers need to be extra careful passing through toll gates.

 

Gone In 90 Minutes : Tanker Spills 20,000 Litres Of Oil!

At around 12 PM on 20 April 2021, a tanker passing through the Juru toll hit a metal pole on the left side.

The pole punctured the tank, which spilled its entire contents onto the road. Fortunately, it was just cooking oil!

The PLUS Response Time and the Prai Fire Department rushed to the site to contain the spill, and clean up the oil.

They succeeded in clearing everything by 1:30 PM, but the incident still caused traffic jam at the toll which apparently stretched for a good 3 kilometres!

The 50 year-old tanker driver suffered minor injuries to his leg, and was taken to the Seberang Jaya Hospital for treatment.

China Used Hot Drinks + Steam To Kill COVID-19?

The Sun FM video on how China used hot drinks and steam to kill COVID-19 keeps getting shared on WhatsApp.

Find out why it’s so popular, and what the FACTS really are!

 

Sun FM : China Used Hot Drinks + Steam To Kill COVID-19!

In an effort to leverage off the “hot topic” of COVID-19 in the early days, Sun FM – an Indian radio station that is related to Sun TV – created and released a video that went viral.

The video went viral on Facebook and WhatsApp, because Sun FM made a lot of incredible claims :

  1. No one dies of COVID-19 in China
  2. The Chinese don’t seek medical attention even if they get COVID-19
  3. The Chinese controlled COVID-19 by :
    a) drinking hot water 6 times a day
    b) drinking hot milk + tea 4 times a day
    c) inhaling steam as often as possible
  4. By consuming hot drinks and inhaling steam for 4 days, they are cured of COVID-19 on the 5th day.
  5. The PCR test will turn up negative.
  6. Medicine cannot totally cure COVID-19, but the heat can.

They then end the video, asking people to share the video, and telling them “Our interest is your safety”.

 

China Used Hot Drinks + Steam To Kill COVID-19? BULLSHIT!

When we first saw Sun FM release this video in mid-2020, it was obvious they were just making it up. The whole video was utter BULLSHIT.

Nothing in it is remotely true. And they had the gall to claim that their interest is your safety. BULLSHIT!

Fact #1 : Many People Died Of COVID-19 In China!

As of January 2021, China reported 90,329 cases of COVID-19, of which 4,636 people died.

That is a very high mortality rate of 5.13%! Basically – 1 out of every 20 COVID-19 patients in China died.

Fact #2 : Chinese Hospitals Were Full!

COVID-19 spread so rapidly in China that their hospitals quickly filled up. Pictures and video showed people crowding hospitals, desperate to find help.

China quickly built two makeshift hospitals – Leishenshan (Thunder God Mountain) and Huoshenshan (Fire God Mountain).

So urgent was their need that they built the Huoshenshan Hospital in just 10 days!

Fact #3 : Hot Drinks Won’t Prevent COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 virus is a respiratory virus, which means it primarily infects you through your respiratory system, and to a lesser extent – through your eyes.

Therefore, drinking hot water and drinks, even coffee or tea, have absolutely NO EFFECT on the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Fact #4 : SARS-CoV-2 Does Not Hang Around For 4 Days

After you inhale the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it will IMMEDIATELY infect and hijack your cells to replicate.

It takes a few days before it infects enough cells, and your body recognises and reacts to the threat, for symptoms to show.

But that doesn’t mean they are on a holiday in your nose, giving you four days to kill them with steam, before finally infecting you!

Fact #5 : Inhaling Steam Is Dangerous + Won’t Kill Virus

Inhaling steam will NOT weaken or kill any virus in your nose. Inhaling hot steam at 60°C to 70°C can cause burn damage to your nose.

In fact, Dr. Satyanarayana Mysore, the HOD of Pulmonology at Manipal Hospitals reported seeing many cases of scalded airways and worsening asthma due to steam inhalation in March, April and May 2020.

Recommended : Can Inhaling Steam + Supplements Prevent COVID-19?

Fact #6 : China Never Used Steaming To Cure COVID-19!

China succeeded in clamping down on the COVID-19 pandemic, by

Not once did the Chinese ever recommend, or even practiced, the use of steam inhalation to treat COVID-19.

Fact #7 : There Are Now Vaccines!

We have to point this out, because this viral message is still spreading, and people actually believe Sun FM’s fake video.

Multiple COVID-19 vaccines have now been approved, and administered worldwide. So make sure you get vaccinated against COVID-19 ASAP!

No More Dimsum : Why It Lasted Less Than 5 Years!

It’s the end for Dimsum, after Star Media Group management announced their decision to shut it down!

Find out what just happened, and why it lasted less than 5 years!

 

Dimsum Calls It Quits, After Less Than 5 years!

After less than 5 years, Star Media Group is calling it quits in the VOD (Video On Demand) subscription business.

On 6 April 2021, they announced that they would shut down Dimsum Entertainment by 30 September 2021.

This decision came after the media group appointed Alex Yeow Wai Saw as CEO on 1 March 2021, and Tan Sri Chor Chee Heung as independent and non-executive chairman on 15 March 2021.

 

Why Did Dimsum Fail?

Officially, a strategic review by its new key management team apparently identified new opportunities for the group to explore.

Chief marketing officer Lam Swee Kim said that while it was a difficult decision to end this chapter, “we are excited to explore promising new ventures in the near future”.

What’s left unsaid is that in the last 4+ years, Dimsum had very little mindshare, even though it offers free viewing, supported by ads.

It focused on Asian content, which is also the focus on iflix and iQIYI (both of which are more established) as well as Viu.

But people who wanted to watch Chinese shows would stick with iQIYI, while those who wanted Korean shows would use Viu. iflix had better luck with ASEAN content.

And with Disney+ coming to Malaysia very soon – the launch was slated for 31 March 2021, but got delayed at the last minute – the writing was on the wall.

Granted, Disney+ would be competing mainly with Netflix and Apple TV+, but most Malaysians can hardly afford multiple streaming services.

If given the option between paying for Disney+ and paying for Dimsum VIP, the choice seems obvious.

The new management team probably “understood” that they would see subscribers shifting to the free offering, and decided to cut losses.

Honestly, we doubt many people would notice them leaving… there are simply too many alternative options offering the same or similar Asian content.

*Note: A dependent can only be tied to one MySejahtera account for vaccination registration purposes

However, please note that you can only register dependents who are 18 years or older for the COVID-19 vaccine programme.

Currently, vaccination is not being offered to those who are younger than 18 years of age.

It’s the same process, whether you are using an Apple iPhone, or an Android smartphone.
