Berita palsu: Sebab pulut santan binasa

Akibat berkongsi satu berita palsu melalui Facebook berhubung dakwaan kontena berisi daging babi bercampur daging kambing dibawa masuk dari Sepanyol dan Brazil, tahun lalu, dua individu (lihat foto), seorang jurutera kilang dan seorang remaja perempuan lepasan politeknik, masing-masing didenda RM3,000 atau penjara sebulan oleh Mahkamah Sesyen di sini hari ini setelah mereka mengaku bersalah.

Menurut berita yang dilaporkan oleh sebuah news portal, Mohd Asrul Alwin dan Ainin Syazwani masing-masing didakwa menggunakan perkhidmatan aplikasi Facebook akaun profil “Rul Yusoff” dan “Ann Syzwni” secara sedar membuat dan memulakan penghantaran komunikasi palsu sifatnya dengan niat menyakitkan hati orang lain pada 7.48 pagi, 21 Julai 2017 dan 9.53 pagi, 20 Julai 2017.

Kedua-dua pautan itu dibaca di restoran Starbucks Aeon Alpha Angle, Bandar Baru Wangsa Maju, pada 10.00 pagi, 1 Ogos 2017.

Moral of the story: Janganlah kita berkongsi cerita yang belum tentu sahih atau benar dengan sesiapa, apalagi di socmed. Jangan kita sebar cerita yang tidak benar. Jangan kita buat fitnah, jangan turut tabur fitnah. Jangan buat atau sebar atau kongsi berita palsu, fake news.

Seperti pesanan orang dulu-dulu, “Sebab pulut santan binasa, sebab socmedia badan boleh merana”.

Learn the term octuple-bogey courtesy of Sergio Garcia

By now more people who play golf has learned what the term octuple-bogey means i.e. when you score an 8-over par on a hole, courtesy of the very unlucky Sergio Garcia. He got his octuple-bogey when lobbed the ball into the Hole 15 green of the Augusta National, only to see it spin and roll into the water, not once but five times.

 

That huge score had put a huge dent into Garcia’s title defence with some people saying that the title defence is well and truly over for him.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods didn’t play as well as people expected him to, but he didn’t play that bad, either. It was just so-so. He finished with a 1-over 73, posting a score of 3 birdies against 5 bogeys.

Several others had done quite well. Jordan Spieth led the First Day with 6-Under, Tony Finau and Matt Kuchar – yes, Matt Kuchar — were T-2 just two strokes back. Phil Mickelson was  only 4 shots behind. And how about Ian Poulter, winner of Houston Open? He did not have a very good round, with a score of 2-over.

As for India’s Shubhankar Sharma, Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat, and China’s Li Haotong, the three had mixed fortunes:

  • Li Haotong: A very good score of 3-Under. At end of Day  he was tied for 4th place with, among others, Mcilroy and Henrik Stenson. The man can do equally good on Day 2, if not better
  • Shubhankar Sharma: He posted a score of 5-Over, which might not be quite enough to sustain him for the weekend play
  • Kiradech Aphibarnrat: At 7-Over, he was placed out of range of the cut line. Unless he performed extremely well on Day 2 with a few others play extremely poor

Day 2 is in progress right now (Saturday 1.00 a.m. Malaysian Time). As always, many eyes will be on Tiger Woods. Can he string several birdies today?
