1. A planet is able to produce its gravity that attract particle into a sphere.
2. A planet must be able to orbit around the sun every time.
3. A planet's orbiting according to it's orbit must clean out the debris such as rock around the orbital region.
The third characteristic failed to apply to Pluto thus to become a dwarf planet just like more than 1,000 dwaft planet outside.

The MoD defended the experiments, saying they had 'saved many lives' in Afghanistan and Iraq.
They have led to improvements in body armour and the medical treatment of soldiers injured by roadside bombs, it said.
But animal welfare activists criticised the 'unethical' practice of causing 'massive mutilation and injury' to the pigs.
The research took place at the Government's secret military research laboratory Porton Down, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, between 2006 and 2009.
Official figures reveal 25 pigs were used in improvised explosive device experiments in 2006, 19 in 2007, 40 in 2008, and 35 in 2009. The animals are anaesthetised before the explosions.
The breed of pigs used in the experiments have skin similar to humans.
Scientists say the tests allow them to see injuries consistent with those inflicted by the Taliban on the battlefield and devise more effective post-traumatic techniques.
The MoD also wraps pigs in materials used to make body armour, such as Kevlar, to determine how effective it is at reducing damage from IEDs.
The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection said: 'Not only are such experiments scientifically questionable... subjecting pigs to such massive mutilation and injury also raises profound ethical questions.'
Caroline Lucas, the Green MP for Brighton Pavilion, has written to ministers urging them to stop the practice.
An RSPCA spokesman said the MoD was required to carry out the tests under strict controls, but added: 'For many, such a use of animals represents a distressing example of the price animals can end up paying as a result of humans' inhumanity towards other humans.'
An MoD spokesman said: 'The advances made due to this research can be utilised both in theatre and civilian scenarios, particularly if there are mass casualties and evacuation to hospital is delayed.'
Government figures show more than 50,000 animals, including sheep, monkeys and cattle, have been subject to experiments at Porton Down in the past four years, including ones using chemical and biological weapons such as Anthrax and nerve gas.

You may laugh at this point.
But for me, I think there is no point to built a cinema in Kota Bharu. This may bring objection to my friends.
Last time there were 2 cinema in Kota Bharu, the first one is LIDO and the second one is Panggung Odeon. I went to Lido before to watch Jackie Chan movie with my family. It really bring nostalgic to me when the Cinema was closed.
For me, if really Kota Bharu has a cinema, two things need to be implemented:
1. Dim lights is needed during movie playing,
2. separation of male and female is needed. And if can, try to create a place that is for family with children less than 12 years old.
This is due to prevent any misconduct inside the cinema.
Hehe, my two cent.

Once I came back from Mydin Hypermarket Kubang Kerian, my mum told me that the room's door is locked. Well, I am very sure this surely is my sister's work. When she opened the door, she did nto realise that the door locked is still in locked position.
This will be a very big trouble for me as my closet is inside the room. Well, my angriness did not blow out easily because I need to change my clothes after bathing. My mum fetch my sister to tuition because I can't fetch- did not bath yet.
I know if the door lock is locked then it is useless for me to try out to open or unlock the door. What i need to do is just waiting for the rescue- need to wait my mum to came back and open the locked door.
She came back and my shirt is being rescued.
Previously I just use my towel to cover myself =)
PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia expects Indonesia to lift the freeze on maids soon.
However, the decision on minimum wage was still pending, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Major progress had been made in negotiations between the countries, said Najib after he and visiting Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono witnessed the signing of the Letter of Intent (LOI) on the maid issue after their retreat here Tuesday.
The provisions in the LOI include maids being given one off-day weekly and keeping their right to hold their passports.
"I assume that it will be lifted soon with respect to the fact that the issues have been settled.
“We have different systems in Indonesia and here and it complicates matters with respect to wages paid to our workers - it requires more discussions.
“I do not think that it will be a major problem (to lift),” he told reporters after the retreat.
The Indonesian president arrived here Tuesday for the seventh annual consultation between Malaysia and Indonesia to discuss bilateral issues to strengthen the ties of friendship and cooperation between Malaysia and Indonesia.
Susilo, his wife, Ani Yudhoyono, and his delegation were received at the KL International Airport (KLIA) by Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman and Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Seri Noh Omar.
He is also scheudled to speak at the World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF)at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
He leaves for Jakarta Wednesday afternoon.
For me I think RM800 wages for one Indonesian maid is something that really need to reconsider. It is too high for the employer. Government also need to take care the liabilities of local workers that even their salary also didn't reach RM800 per month. Local worker need to buy food and accomodation but Indon maids already can stay inside employer's house with foods everyday(Just she need to cook it).

Malaysian accept this 1Malaysia concept. I think this concept should be enlarged to taxi drivers and taxi associations nationwide!
Malaysian taxi is said to be among the worst in the world. Let me clarify, not ALL taxi drivers are like that, just maybe one in ten of taxi drivers are the culprit of simply charging passengers.
Kelantanese Taxi drivers like to jump queue at traffic lights. This always happened to everyone include my. And their behaviour of driving is so brave and didn't scare any incoming car at all.
However, if we know how to let people first then you are a good guy. If you still want to bypass the taxi driver, NO WAY at all! I hope they can change their driving behavior. Please stop to jump queue (except emergency case). [Haha, i guess every passenger are emergency case for them]. Budi Bahasa Budaya Kita.
Taxi 1Malaysia should be launched throughout Malaysia to service local people with using meter. Meter is used so that passenger didnt pay more than the actual rate.

Are you sure? Well i think pink is unisex, I also own a few pink colour shirts and one pink strip colour formal shirt by PDI. Check out my facebook u will see me in pink. haha.
Back to the title, congratulations to KTMB (Kereta api Tanah Melayu Berhad) for introducing ladies only coaches in their commuter(KTM komuter) service.
This is really a good initiative by KTM. This initiative already had begun long time ago in Japan and modern countries. Click here to view more.
Personally, I have not see any serious groping in KTM before because I am not a frequent user of KTM(I did not use KTM everyday). But If I hang out. KTM Komuter is definitely a must for me to go to Kuala Lumpur, KL Sentral and Midvalley. In fact I am also a frequent passenger of KTMB, that is intercity train from Wakaf Bahru to Serdang and vice versa. During peak time, KTM is really pack and train delay worsen the situation, making every station is full of people how i can bet many of us cannot board the coaches during peak and delayed period. Women and female teenagers will definitely become a victim of sardine packed coaches.
However I saw before a "little sexual excitation" by foreign workers to girls. He stand near to the back of the girl. And I guess is he smelling the nice perfume smell of the girl or rubbing the girl? That one I am not sure. One day when I went back to home town because university holiday started I saw one foreign guy sat beside one lady. The foreign guy intentionally leaned back to the window. And for that lady, for sure she will move to the front a little bit.
KTM should locate enforcers at their stations to make sure only "ladies all the times" board the middle coach of every train. The middle coaches is only for ladies and children 12 years old and below.
"Tren akan tiba di stesen sebentar lagi"
"Train will be arriving station shortly"
- accouncement bell at KL Sentral
Eventually, pink coaches will not cure much more problems of the time delay service. KTM should increase their accuracy of the arrival of trains on every stations. I am wondering why train from Seremban will eventually stop before Midvalley station and/or before KL Sentral for half a minute. Is this mean they arrived earlier than predicted? And they need to wait green light from the control center?
Hangat-hangat tahi ayam
Supposedly this program is long term and should not be "forgotten" easily. The enforcer should patrol the in and out of the middle coaches at all times. This is to ensure no adult males go into the train except special cases. KTM should add the automatic gate at every door entrance of the commuter. The gate is similar to monorail KL at Bukit Bintang/Imbi Station.
I wish that women will be more secured in this ladies all the times coach. =)
p.s. KTM should add the comfortability of passengers in every also.
