    More and more designers are turning to blogging to get their ideas about design out there and be heard by the greater design community online. However, there’s one special problem that many of them have: they have nothing really interesting to say about design. They will blog about things that are unimportant, or boring, or that no one really cares about. It’s essential that designers who blog have something interesting to say. If you don’t have this one down, you’re going to get nowhere fast in the blogging world. No one will stick around to read bland, uninformative…

    A close friend’s mother recently passed away due to dengue fever. There are friends who I know personally admitted to hospital due to dengue. Too many reports of dengue cases, and all these incidents are directly from the people I know. The regularity of these dengue reports are frightening. At this rate, I really think that the virus is starting to get out of control. Maybe it’s the change of the weather. Or the urban environment which is favorable to the breeding of these deadly Aedes mosquitoes. Whatever it is, please take extra caution. Some stats from flutracker.com: 2014…

  • Purchasing and Sourcing

    Both activities get products into your store. One should be automated, the other one needs a bit more intervention from you. Purchasing is a formula built using a few variables- stock status, historical purchase, sale’s growth (or decline) etc. You should have a system that tells you this automatically. Your time is better spent elsewhere. Sourcing is a bit more intuitive. A bit of trials and errors, hits and misses. Having a budget will also help reduce the risk. You get better the more you do it.

While this beautiful getaway may not hold the biggest appeal to extreme thrill-seekers, this laid-back island is a great place for foodies who wish to unwind in semi-isolation from the big bad world. Knowing that Labuan was only a boat ride away from Muara on the Bruneian coast, I decided to take up a friend’s invitation to join him and a few more of our mutual friends for a quick summer…

    1. Your relationships are less dramatic than they used to be. Drama is not maturity. As we age, we should develop maturity. So maybe your relationships were drama-filled in your past, but if you have moved beyond that, then you are successful. 2. You are not afraid to ask for help and support any more. Asking for help does not equal weakness. In fact, it is a strength. No person has ever succeeded in isolation. It takes teamwork to accomplish goals. Asking or help is a sign that you have grown as a person. 3. You have raised your standards. You don’t tolerate bad behavior any more – from…

    A Malaysia Airlines passenger plane crashes in Ukraine, near Russian border, on Thursday, killing all 298 people aboard, mostly Dutch. It’s widely believed that the plane was shot down by pro-Russian separatist. Like many people around the world, I’m shocked and saddened by the news. Can’t comprehend the reason behind the attack, and can’t understand how it was deemed safe to fly over the region. My condolences to the families and relatives. This is the second disaster involving Malaysia Airlines this year. The flight MH370, which gone missing in March, has yet to be…

    Colin Charles
    18 Jul 2014 | 10:17 pm
    I’m deeply saddened by MH17. I haven’t gotten over MH370 yet, and I can’t imagine how all at MAS, people flying it, and everyone involved react to all of this — 2 tragedies within 6 months is truly unprecedented. This is a long piece but just remember: This is not the fault of MAS. Stop blaming them. The plane was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Why do I care? People that know me, know that I’m up in the air all the time. For those that don’t know me, last year I took over 12 trips around the Earth, and the year before that over 18 trips around the Earth (circumference of…
  • Keeping citizens data in local data centers

    Moscow has just made waves by trying to tell web services at personal data of local Russians needs to be stored on Russian soil – see: Moscow seeks to tighten grip online (it’s an FT link which is behind a paywall, but surely a search will find similar articles). Not long ago, Brazil tried to do this, but the idea was quickly scrapped. The FT take is that this is a means of trying to control citizenry. And of course it’s deadly costly to companies like Google or Facebook. I don’t see it that way (though it may very well be the main motivator). Keeping local data in…

    Astute readers of the release notes for MariaDB 10.0.12 will notice that there is a line that reads: performance_schema is now disabled by default. We didn’t come to this decision by accident. Recently at the SkySQL company meeting in Budapest, we did have some time to break out into our usual working teams to talk about our daily operations. Team MariaDB had a debate about PERFORMANCE_SCHEMA and how it was left on by mistake in 10.0 GA as there was a decision to turn it off. Personally, I don’t like introducing such changes in a GA release, and there was no archive of such a discussion,…

It is an interesting read, telling you that there are many Snowden’s in waiting, possibly even in your organisation.  From a MariaDB standpoint, you probably already read that column level encryption as well as block level encryption for some storage engines are likely to come to MariaBD 10.1 via a solution by Eperi. However with some recent breaking news, Google is also likely to do this – see this thread about MariaDB encryption…

    If you need to create presentations for high-powered clients, or impress lecturers and professors in university, you may have heard of (or are already using) Prezi. Prezi is a cloud-based presentation tool and is known for its zooming user interface (ZUI) allowing you to easily break down or go into things in detail. As it was created to replace slide presentations, Prezi’s interface and visual story-telling makes it ideal for conveying information interactively.

    More and more designers are turning to blogging to get their ideas about design out there and be heard by the greater design community online. However, there’s one special problem that many of them have: they have nothing really interesting to say about design.

    The common idea most of us have when it comes to living space is that we are quickly running out of it. Rent and land is expensive in areas of vast opportunities and yet there are very creative people who went ahead and took the little space they have and made the most out of it. We’re talking about smart micro-living where home owners make use of smart, stowable furniture, multi-purpose home fixtures, clever architectural designs or a combo of all three to cut down on the size of homes, without eating into the comforts we have grown accustomed to.

    One of the things you have to do while in Borneo is see orangutans in the rainforest. I went on a river rafting trip that included a stop at Semenggoh Wildlife Center (national park) on the way. From my research I believe this was 1 of the 2 good options for seeing wild orangutans near Kuching. The orangutans are free in the forest. They stop by the viewing points because of the tasty food (many were also brought here for rehabilitation so they are comfortable seeing people – though the rehabilitation is largely moved elsewhere now). Because the orangutans are free when fruit is in…

    Guest Contributor

    There are two main types of income: active income and passive income. Active income refers to the income received in the form of a salary if you are working, or profit from a business if you are a business owner. It’s essentially the types that require you to put in time and effort to generate income. Passive income, on the other hand, is income generated by leveraging on capital with minimal active input, generally some kind of investment. Why do we need it? Active income requires exchanging time and skills for money, but there is a ceiling to the income because your time is limited. While…

However, Malaysia’s property policies are still not as stringent as Singapore, Hong Kong or even the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
