Related Post Plugins

Bad news, the Related Posts plugin I have installed and used here in this blog has to be deactivated and deleted. That's what my hosting provider asked me to do. They said:

Please be informed that one of wordpress plugin (Related Post) in fatihsyuhud.com account has caused server high load, this can cause disturbance to the particular server. We hope your cooperation to deactivate and delete the plugin within three days.

In another word if I don't deactivate it, my account may be suspended. So, you won't see the Related Post again below any posting from today on.

While deactivating the plugins, I also asked my webhosting provider if they know any good related post plugin which is not consuming much to the server--something like Related Post using ajax? They said in negative.

Indonesia as the First President Obama Trip

Indonesia will be the first Obama trip as President of USA:

Obama promised during the campaign to convene a Muslim summit, and the New York Times speculated today on where he would deliver a major, early address to a Muslim audience, settling on Egypt as the likeliest.

The Obama donor, Los Angeles real estate executive Ted Leary, recalled that Obama spoke of his plan to donors at a February 20, 2007 breakfast fundraiser at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, soon after announcing his run for president.

"Obama told the 20 or so of us at breakfast that 'his first trip as President would be to Indonesia - the world's most populous Muslim country,'" Leary recalled.

"He then said when he got off [Air Force One], he would say 'xxxxxxxx' - which we, of course, didn't understand," Leary emailed. "He said that it was Indonesian (which he speaks) for, 'I am back, dudes.'"

So, Obama would say "Saya datang lagi, kawan!" (Anyone has a better translation of "I am back, dudes?")

Anyone have an idea where to find a light Related Post plugin? Oh btw, I used Related Post 2.0 by Wasabi and Mike Lu

Last but not least, the server high load occurs when your traffic is high. So, it's ok to use the plugin if you haven't reach a certain amount of traffic that will cause the server high load. You'll know it when it comes.

From now on, until I find a light "Related Post" plugin, I will use Feedjit Recommended Reading in place of Related Post 2.0 plugin. It's better than not at all.

Mumbai Terrorists Relied on New Technology for Attacks

The NYT reports

The terrorists who struck this city last month stunned authorities not only with their use of sophisticated weaponry but also with their comfort with modern technology.

The terrorists navigated across the Arabian Sea to Mumbai from Karachi, Pakistan, with the help of a global positioning system handset. While under way, they communicated using a satellite phone with those in Pakistan believed to have coordinated the attacks. They recognized their targets and knew the most direct routes to reach them in part because they had studied satellite photos from Google Earth.

Hajj makes Muslims more tolerant, study suggests

Observing hajj to Mecca for Muslims tends to make them more religiously observant and also more tolerant a huge study of Pakistani pilgrims suggests:

Muslims who undertake the hajj "return with more positive views towards people from other countries," are more likely to say "that people of different religions are equal," and are twice as likely as other religious Muslims to condemn Osama bin Laden, the study found.

"People become more orthodox yet more tolerant," one of the study's authors, Asim Ijaz Khwaja of Harvard University, said of hajjis -- those who make the pilgrimage.

He described the study's findings Monday, as this year's annual pilgrimage reached its climax, the symbolic stoning of the devil on the festival of Eid al-Adha, an Islamic holiday that traditionally marks the end of the hajj.

Anti Corruption Day

United Nation (UN) has designated 9 December as International Anti Corruption day. So, Each year on December 9 we observe Anti-Corruption day. It aims to raise public awareness of corruption and what people can do to fight it.

By resolution 58/4 of 31 October 2003, the General Assembly designated 9 December as International Anti-Corruption Day. This decision was taken in order to raise awareness of corruption and of the role of the United Nations Convention against Corruption in combating and preventing it.

The Assembly urged all States and competent regional economic integration organizations to sign and ratify the United Nations Convention against Corruption as soon as possible in order to ensure its rapid entry into force.

Meaning and Definition

Literally speaking it means:

(n.) The act of changing, or of being changed, for the worse; departure from what is pure, simple, or correct; as, a corruption of style; corruption in language.
(n.) The act of corrupting or of impairing integrity, virtue, or moral principle; the state of being corrupted or debased; loss of purity or integrity; depravity; wickedness; impurity; bribery.
(n.) The product of corruption; putrid matter.
(n.) The act of corrupting or making putrid, or state of being corrupt or putrid; decomposition or disorganization, in the process of putrefaction; putrefaction; deterioration.

Political Corruption

The general and by-default meaning of "corruption" refers to political corruption for which meaning today is designated as International Anti Corruption Day:

Political corruption is the use of governmental powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain. Misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general police brutality, is not considered political corruption. Neither are illegal acts by private persons or corporations not directly involved with the government. An illegal act by an officeholder constitutes political corruption only if the act is directly related to their official duties.

All forms of government are susceptible to political corruption. Forms of corruption vary, but include bribery, extortion, cronyism, nepotism, patronage, graft, and embezzlement. While corruption may facilitate criminal enterprise such as drug trafficking, money laundering, and trafficking, it is not restricted to these organized crime activities. In some nations, corruption is so common that it is expected when ordinary businesses or citizens interact with government officials. The end point of political corruption is a kleptocracy, literally "rule by thieves".

Bribery around the world is estimated at about $1 trillion (£494bn), and the burden of corruption falls disproportionately on the bottom billion people living in extreme poverty.
