Good will hunting?

Interesting news I read on Yahoo! news today. Hmmm… I’m sure this is the first time I came across news about a man who seems uninterested in prize money amounting to $1 million.

Extractions from the news:

"MADRID, Spain - A reclusive Russian won the math world's highest honor Tuesday for solving a problem that has stumped some of the discipline's greatest minds for a century — but he refused the award. "

“Besides shunning the award for his work in topology, Perelman also seems uninterested, according to colleagues, in a separate $1 million prize he could win for proving the Poincare conjecture, a theorem about the nature of multidimensional space.”

I always thought that it’s a material world nowadays. Most people are blinded or at least blurred by money. I know I sometimes am. To find out there is still someone who can walk away from BIG money is refreshing. There’s definitely something that we can learn from this man.

Oh, you would like to know more? Follow this link please:

Hearing it all...

Anyone watched Pak Lah on TV last night? I didn’t, on purpose. Never liked political discussions. I stopped paying much attention to politics since what happened to DPM in the 1990s.

Anyway, I read ‘Hearing it all from Pak Lah’ on NST today. He has answered a lot of questions. On the 9PM, on his image, on his governing style, etc, etc… u should catch it. It’s on page 6-7 of Prime News.

Quoting Pak Lah’s answers…

‘People say I’m doing all these because of Khairy. After struggling in politics for years and having climbed the mountain to become Prime Minister, can I simply hand over to him. How can I do this?’

…he has a point that I can understand.

‘Just give me time… if I take the field in a football game, and after 10 minutes, I am judged for my performance, how can that be?’

… ok boss. Just don’t take toooo long.

As for me, my personal opinion towards Pak Lah has changed. I’ve grown to have more respect for him. I think he’s doing great as a PM. He’s a bit soft, but he has proven that he’s firm. And I like the way he’s balancing material and moral development. That’s what we want as we’re approaching our vision right? So, I can see our country growing under his governance.

Be reminded that our perceptions of his answers are ‘a matter of opinion’. Read it with an open mind, then perhaps we’ll be able to get to a sound conclusion.
