Blog Action Day 2010: Water

Today is an amazing day! My blog will be joining Blog Action Day to discuss and write about water issues in our communities and around the world! Of course, some of the local bloggers (Senor Pablo and RATED E!) are participating as well!

Water = Life

No matter how much we argue and denied things in life, Water is the most important resources for global human being. Everyone is depending on it. I am glad to be born and living healthy in a peaceful country because we got access to clean water and including good medical care.

However, with the increase populations, newly setup industries and expand developments over the years. There are certainly continuous issue affecting and threat to the environments in just one country alone. That is water.

Unstoppable Polluted River

Developed or Developing Countries, it doesn’t matter today as we all share the same issue all over the world. Whenever I look at my very own country, both locals and foreigners are doing the same ignoring the facts they are destroying environment and polluting the waters.

How? They dump rubbish’s and garbage’s to the drainages and rivers almost every day. Even the children’s are following the parent’s examples without any proper guidance. Imagine such behaviors continue over decade, our rivers will slowly later become uninhabitable, increase causing blocks on the drainage and sewages problem which can lead to floods on the areas. Not only that, it can bring diseases. Children’s are especially vulnerable.

What are the solutions to this? Sadly, I have no answers and unable to fight this problem just by the public voicing alone. Even I find it weird that we have lack of educations teaching on the environmental subject issue. Our Governments really have to stand to promote and takes the stricter laws protecting the environments. Otherwise, things will go bad to worse for new generations every year.

We Can Improve the Future

We read about the needs of clean water in Africa and Asia poor developing countries every day. I visit some non-profit organizations that offer 100% public donations and fundraiser for water. Most of them are asking US$20-25.00 for life for one life or building wells and sanitation facilities for water projects. I love the ideas and good peoples involving on the charities works to keep the projects alive until now.

The question is. Is that really enough to solve the problems? Everyone knows both Africa and Asia have huge populations rising and expanding too every year. Not to mention people around the world are facing economies issue, losing their jobs, worrying debt or mortgages and had their own stressful life to deal with. To most of us, US$20.00 is hard earn money and cannot easily simply just by giving out to anyone. So how will this water projects and maintenances to survived in the future plans?

My opinions, we need better health research and improve the technology to bring better ahead of us and the poor developing countries. These also bring much more economical returns on repairs and long term maintenances or supports.

Think about it. Medical research helps to improve health, create medicines cure and prevention against many kinds of deadly diseases. Improve technology helps to create cost efficient advance water projects including better maintenance and repairs. Even green technologies are growing fast popularity these days and we might one day going to have a solar recycling water machine in turning dirty or uninhabitable river water into clean drinking water.

Anything is possible for both medical research and technology. It gives us benefits to the economics and brining even better future creating clean drinking water forever.

Final Words

While this idea and opinions may be just a dream, I believe hope for real solutions. Our governments are already focusing on financing and supporting solar energy developments. But still, it’s not enough. As more and more people around the world are waking up to the clean water crisis. I wish Brunei should start looking right now into it and promote global environment educations as well. It doesn’t matter if our populations are small. As long we act early, we can work together to improve the future.

Note: if you would like to donate and fundraising on water projects. You can visit Water.org and charity: water for more information on how you can help and fund the water projects.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
