Got an idea for building a better condom? The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is offering $100,000 of initial funding with up to $1 million of possible continued funding to whoever designs the “next generation of condoms‘. Proposals sent to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation must have a “testable hypothesis”, include an associated plan for how the idea would be tested or validated and yield interpretable and unambiguous data to receive continued funding toward development. Ideas that prove too expensive for widespread use in the developing world, or those that don’t do the job of preventing pregnancy or disease transmission will be dismissed right off the bat.

I saw many bloggers posted about radio-controlled helicopter (RC Helicopter) over the last few months. Many people seem to go gaga over this flying toy. Well, I’m always curious about the potential dangers of the RC Helicopter.

I had my breakfast at Starbucks this morning. With lots of assignments to complete, a cup of delicious and refreshing Starbucks coffee is a good way to start the day. After all, I had not been to Starbucks Café quite a while now, which is so not me who as you all now a self-confessed Starbucks coffee addict I parked my car somewhere in Api-Api Centre and walked to Warisan Square where I ordered a cup of Asian Dolce Latte and a slice of cheese cake.

This is a song that I feel has a ‘Bond’ quality to it. Performed by Mekel of the band Once (pronounced ‘On-Chair’), ‘Hilang Naluri (Matilah Kau)’ (loosely translated : Soul Vanishes – May You Die) is about a deep hatred that is rooted in love (that’s what I think). The first time I heard it, I couldn’t believe that he said ‘Matilah Kau’, rather coarse, but very honest.
Hope you’ll enjoy it as I do. [click to continue…]
