Selangor police chief Datuk Arjunaidi Mohamed said of the total, the majority of cases involved fraudulent online transactions by scammers posing as officers from the Inland Revenue Board (IRB), Employees Provident Fund Lembaga Tabung Haji, as well as individuals selling goods in large quantities. Speaking at the Police Undergraduate Voluntary Corps (Kor SUKSIS) graduation ceremony here on Sunday (May 22), he said the victims of online fraud cases comprised people from various backgrounds including civil servants and private sector employees. He said usually victims would panic and feel anxious, especially when their call was connected to the “police” causing them to fall victim to Macau scam syndicates. “...it is illogical for IRB to connect a call to a police officer. IRB and the police do … [Read more...] about Macau scam: Selangor records RM19.8 mil in losses

- A + A LANGKAWI (May 22): Bilateral relations and consensus among ASEAN countries need to be strengthened in order to ensure security and stability of the region is given priority. Senior Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said a united front could prevent superpowers from taking ASEAN countries, including Malaysia lightly. "If the 10 Asean countries could unite to ensure that our priority is our regional security and stability, then no superpowers can belittle us," he said. He said this at a press conference after witnessing the 2022 Taming Sari Exercise Series 21 in the waters at the north of the Straits of Melaka near here on Sunday (May 22). Commenting further, Hishammuddin said, however, the efforts of ASEAN countries together with the superpowers must continue in addition to the approach of strengthening relations among ASEAN countries. He said the bilateral relationship could be translated into proactive actions such as military … [Read more...] about ASEAN countries should unite to ensure priority for regional security, stability
Tiger Woods allegedly has no memory of driving right before getting into a terrible car crash. According to USA Today , a police affidavit claims the legendary golfer told police in the aftermath of the crash that he didn’t remember driving. Police have gotten a warrant for the car’s black box to see if that will help them learn how the situation unfolded.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Before complex life evolved on our planet, volcanoes on the Moon spewed water vapor across the lunar surface that likely still exists as frost and ice in its craters. It could be the perfect drinking water for astronauts, say the authors of a new study published this month in The Planetary Science Journal . If may even have been possible to see sliver of frost on the M0on’s terminator—the divider between sunlight and darkness (so, day and night) —though no humans were around at the time. The research looks at simulations of the Moon going back billions of years. Back then, according to their models, the Moon experienced a massive volcanic eruption roughly every 22,000 years, covering its surface in pools of lava. “They dwarf almost all of the eruptions on Earth,” said study co-author Paul Hayne, assistant professor at the Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences (APS) and the Laboratory for … [Read more...] about Would You Drink Old Moon Water?

[+] Armer/dpa (Photo by Nicolas Armer/picture alliance via Getty Images) On Tuesday, NASA officials at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) confirmed the first definitive evidence of water on the surface of the Moon, settling a decades-long debate about whether the substance was ice or simply hydrogen. This discovery has wide-reaching implications for future lunar settlements and exploratory missions in addition to some unexpected results for lunar astronomers. Scientists have previously suspected the presence of ice at the Moon's poles, but the data could have also been explained by reflective properties of the soil. In contrast, this study identified several characteristic signatures that give concrete proof that the Moon is host to a critical resource. Shuai Li, from the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and … [Read more...] about NASA Confirms The Existence Of Water On The Moon
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The moon has water . That’s great news for a future moon-base, but it’s also often talked-up as a resource for creating rocket fuel. Last week NASA announced that it would send a mobile robot, the Volatiles Investigating Polar Exploration Rover (VIPER) to the South Pole of the Moon to find the exact location and concentration of water ice in the region. “The key to living on the Moon is water—the same as here on Earth,” said Daniel Andrews, project manager of the VIPER mission and director of engineering at NASA’s Ames Research Center in Silicon Valley. “Since the confirmation of lunar water-ice ten years ago, the question now is if the Moon could really contain the amount of resources we need to live off-world.” Another theory goes that if we can use the water on the moon—which is locked-up as ice, but we’ll worry about that later—to power spacecraft, they will be able to go way, way further into the cosmos and … [Read more...] about Can We Really Use The Moon’s Billion-Year Old Water To Make Rocket Fuel And Open Up The Cosmos?
