China Flooding Kills 701 In Worst Toll In A Decade-Photos

21 07 2010

There is a bad flood in China now.

It is a disaster.

701 people were killed by the flood and 347 are missing.

Three quarter of China’s provinces were hit by the flood.

25 rivers have reached record-high water level.

Heavy rain on the hillsides caused lots of landslides.

Lots and lots of houses and buildings were damaged.

The water level at the Three Gorges Dam is at record high.

It is now just 20m below the dam’s maximum capacity.

Three Gorges Dam is the biggest hydro power dam in the world.

The dam is on the Yangtze River.

Yangtze River is the longest river in China.

I think that the people in China must stop doing things that hurt the environment.

They should stop cutting down trees and stop polluting the rivers and the air.

All these make a flood worse.

We have to take care of our Earth as in Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’.

(100720) -- YICHANG, July 20, 2010 (Xinhua) -- Flood waters are sluiced with the water outflux monitored at 40,000 cubic meters per second at Three Gorges Dam in Yichang, central China's Hubei Province, July 20, 2010. China's Three Gorges Dam project on the Yangtze River stood its biggest flood-control test at 8 a.m. Tuesday since completion, as the flow on the river's upper reaches topped 70,000 cubic meters a second. All ferry services were halted at the Three Gorges Dam on Monday, and would be resumed after the influx decreased to 45,000 cubic meters per second. (Xinhua/Cheng Min) (zgp)

Human-Made Disaster; People Were Killed Everywhere-Photos

17 07 2010

People killed other people all over the world.

They use violence as a vehicle to get what they want.

This is a disaster.

We should stop hurting each other and stop destroying our Earth.

We should also stop cutting down trees and use them as weapons in fighting.

Listen to Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’ and let us try to heal the world.

These are some of the latest violence in today’s Yahoo News.

The photos are also from Yahoo News.


Mexico

Lots and lots of people were killed in Mexican drug war.

Three people were killed in a car bomb by drug seller this week.

The remains of a vehicle are cordoned off in a street in the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, Friday July 16, 2010. Mexican investigators ran forensic tests to determine whether drug gangs used a car bomb in an attack on police patrol trucks that killed two officers and wounded nine people on Thursday. A car bomb would mark an unprecedented escalation of Mexico's drug war and confirm long-standing fears that the cartels are turning to explosives in their fight against security forces. (AP Photo)

Pakistan

A lot of people were killed in bomb attacks  and by guns all over Pakistan.

On Saturday 18 passengers were killed in northeastern Pakistan.

Please stop destroying our Earth.





A Day in Melaka (Malacca)

6 03 2010

Yesterday I went to Melaka to visit Uncle Khairul Najmi’s mother.

Her name is Opah Asmah Idris.

Uncle Najmi is my father’s good friend.

She had a heart attack on Sunday.

She is now in the CCU ward of Hospital Melaka.

I met Atuk Idris and Aunty Aini at the hospital.

(but we forgot to take photo at the hospital)

After that we had lunch at ‘Lot 85’ with my father’s friends.

Their names are Aunty Jennifer Lim, Uncle Lee Chong Seong, Uncle Yong Chin Fook, Uncle David Wang and Uncle Ridwan Aziz.


They are Sulaimanians – they used to study at Sultan Sulaiman Secondary School (SSSS) in Kuala Terengganu. (The school blog – Click)

Now they live in Melaka.

I eat tasty nasi ayam (chicken rice) and drink a nice, cold lime juice.

We stop at Masjid Al-Azim for zohor.


On the way home, I saw a forest fire by the highway.

Forest fire is a disaster.

The forest fire reminds me of Micheal Jackson’s ‘Earth Song’.

I am sad because I was asleep in the car when Auntie Yaman called from Sudan.

I enjoyed the trip and hope to go to Melaka again.





Free The Killer Whales

3 03 2010

There is a video on CNN about ‘Captive Whales Will Kill, OSHA Warned’.

OSHA is Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

OSHA Logo

I agree with that.

I wrote about it in my blog, ‘Killer Whale Killed Its Trainer’.

I think killer whales need to live in their own homes – the oceans.

Killer Whale

They love the oceans and the ocean are their homes.

Killer whales want to be free and be with their families.

Killer Whales

We can make a floating zoo in the ocean and use boats to visit them.

It will be something like a safari.

Killer whales are wild animal.

They can get angry and kill other people.

May be killer whales feel like being jailed in the huge tanks.

A Killer Whale and its Trainer

I think people will be building floating zoos one day.

Please protect the animals and trees.

And please protect our earth as in ‘Earth Song’.





The Heritage Buildings In Kuala Terengganu Is Now Gone.

18 01 2010

A row of historical heritage buildings in Kuala Terengganu is now gone.

This is a disaster.

Was there an earthquake in Kuala Terengganu like the one in Port-au-Prince?

There was no earthquake in Kuala Terenggganu.

Before

After

It was a man made disaster and not a natural disaster!

The heritage buildings were very beautiful and so strong.

They were more than 100 years old but did not collapsed on their own.

We should have kept the buildings and paint them to make them more beautiful.

The Haitian were sad to see their historic buildings collapsed.

But a government demolished a row of strong historical buildings using bulldozers.

Just like in the Earth Song video clip when people used bulldozer to destroy trees.

If I can go to the United Nations I’ll tell everybody to stop destroying historical heritage buildings.

We should make a law to protect historical buildings.

People Protested Againts Demolishing The Historical Heritage Building.






Latest Airstrikes Along Gaza Strip

8 01 2010

Gaza City (CNN) — The death toll rose to three Friday from Israeli airstrikes along the Gaza Strip, officials said.

Israeli Defense Forces said it launched four airstrikes along the Gaza Strip on Thursday, targeting a weapons shop and two smuggling tunnels.

Israel routinely targets the Rafah tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border, which it says Hamas uses to smuggle weapons into Palestinian territory.

Palestinians say the tunnels are needed to get basic food supplies that are not available in Gaza.

I am sad to read about more airstrikes in Gaza.

I wrote about war in Palestine in January last year.

War is very, very bad.

War is a disaster.

War is bad because it can destroy our Earth.

We have to save our Earth as in Earth Song by Micheal Jackson.






Michael Jackson’s Earth Song

3 01 2010

The ‘Earth Song’ is about the bad things some people did to the Earth.

I love the song very much because it tells us to stop destroying our Earth.

People cut down trees, killed wild animals, start forest fire and war.

The video clip shows in the rain forest of Amazon, South America people are cutting down trees.

The rain forest was beautiful before they cut down trees.

But after people cut down the trees there is no more beautiful green trees.

The video clip also shows the war in Croatia.

I can see houses that were destroyed by bomb and no green trees.

The place was so green and beautiful before the war.

Now there are war in Palestine and Afghanistan.

I saw dead elephant in Tanzania, Africa.

People killed the elephants because they want the elephants’ tasks.

Other wild animals such as zebra, giraffes, sea lions and dolphins are also in danger.

Forest fire burn the trees, animals and humans.

In the video clip Micheal Jackson was not burnt because it was not a real forest fire 🙂

We have to save our Earth from disasters.

Michael Jackson singing ‘Earth Song’

We have to stop the war, stop the fire, stop killing wild animals and stop cutting down the trees.

Bulldozer cutting down the trees

We have to save the Earth.

I think I will write a song entitled ‘Stop Destroying Our Earth’.
