Farmers to march against FGVH amid dismal share price
December 27, 2012KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 27 — Some 30,000 farmers are expected to converge on the city tomorrow against plantations giant Felda Global Ventures Holdings (FGVH) in what they claim is a bid to save the federal land authority — seen as among the last pillars of the Malay community — from crumbling.
 The share price of FGVH had dipped two sen below its initial public offering (IPO) of RM4.55 in early trade at 10am today, continuing its dismal performance in recent months which has angered a group of first- and second-generation palm oil farmers who hold stock in the company.
 FGVH’s share price rebounded later in the day to close at RM4.60 on Bursa Malaysia when trading halted for the day.

Can a hair dresser bring down a democracy movement?

Recently there is a series of absurd looking but well timed “incidents” of “religious confrontation surfacing in controlled main stream media mainly accessed by the non-muslim community.
I am talking about the hair dresser who got fined by the Kota Bahru Municipal Council and now the non-muslim people being cautioned for indecent behavior by the same authority.

I would like to say, it is an insult to tens of thousands of decent hairdressers and customers who like nothing more than a normal way of making a living and get a routine chore out of the way respectively. Do I get a woody while having my hair cut? Never.
However, the above incident, as abominable as it is, is being blown up with strong scent of 2 elements: expectedly timed prior to a GE and subsequent high profile follow up reports that has vote persuasion happen all over it.
