Hah!here’s a thing..I got an invitation from my friends to be one of their band’s members. Sounds interesting isn’t it? There is a lot of experience that I can gain from joining them as a members, but what really confusing me is it worth it? This semester seems like tough for me where I have to struggle to make my pointer back on track. This band kind an active where there is always a performance invitation from everyone. So, I have to choose either be part of the band or just simply reject it (Compound Claims:Disjunctives) because once I have make my decision to join them, it’s hard for me to keep my study on average and of course I have a lot of commitment. So,what am I suppose to do?help!

Najib to DrM: Show proof of sand and air space offer to S'pore
Husna Yusop

KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak today (Aug 14, 2006) asked Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to show proof to back his allegation that Malaysia had offered sand and air space to Singapore.

He said although the issue is academic now as the government has decided not to go ahead with the bridge to replace the Causeway, the government is willing to look at the former prime minister's proof.

To a question from a reporter, Najib said he does not know whether the evidence that Mahathir claims he has is classified under the Official Secrets Act unless it is revealed and assessed.

"But if he is afraid to reveal it (publicly), he can submit proof to us first, we can see what he has."

Najib was speaking to reporters after opening the 58th special general meeting of the Peninsula Malay Students Confederation (GPMS).

He was asked to comment on Mahathir's statement in a ceremony during the Petaling Jaya Utara Umno Youth annual meeting on Saturday (Aug 12, 2006) that he was willing to swear by the Quran to lend credence to his arguments.

To this, Najib reiterated the government's stand that the issue of sand and airspace was brought up by Singapore "as a balance of interest for the construction of the straight bridge."

On Mahathir's statement on Sunday (Aug 13, 2006) that he will "stop talking" if the government decides to build the bridge, Najib said the cabinet has already made the decision not to go on with the project.

"It is not that we want to cancel it but it was due to the complicated matter, especially in terms of international laws and the water agreement with Singapore," he said.

On the move by the PJ Utara Umno division to invite Mahathir as a guest at its meeting, Najib said the party headquarters has yet to decide on the matter.

According to an Umno supreme council directive, only supreme council members, Umno ministers and mentris besar are allowed to open divisional meetings.

"Tun is still an Umno member and we take into consideration the fact the meeting was organised by Umno members. However, we will monitor the development. It is up to the Disciplinary Board," he added.

Asked whether the government is doing anything to stop Mahathir's criticisms which are confusing the public, he said they will continue to explain the issues raised.

"We cannot guarantee this (when he will stop) because we do not know what we should do to end it. We do not know what Tun actually wants in this matter," he added.

On GPMS, Najib suggested the new leadership tackle issues like the dropout rate among Malays, the imbalance between male and female university students and the unemployment among Malay graduates.
