KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- With threats of serious financial crime looming with the emergence of new technologies, including cryptocurrencies, can bitcoin survive scrutiny from central banks globally? 

Amid growing warnings of a market bubble, central banks, such as that of China, have restricted cryptocurrencies trading, which sent the virtual currency dropping as much as 40 per cent since reaching a record high of US$4,921 on Sept 1, cutting about US$20 billion in market value.

This is following a crackdown by Chinese regulators on cryptocurrencies trading, including bitcoin, which according to the authorities have become a tool for speculation among investors and also serves as a payment conduit for illegal fundraising and money laundering.

Thevarani Sampai Mesej Untuk Wanita Melalui Drama, Telemovie

Oleh Suziela Che Mat

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- K.Thevarani mahukan wanita yang sudah selesa dengan sikap bergantung kepada kaum lelaki supaya membebaskan diri daripada sikap itu.

Sementara mengakui akan peranan dan sumbangan kaum hawa dalam mengubah nasib mereka selama ini selain sumbangan mereka bagi kemajuan negara, beliau kesal kerana masih ada yang terus membiarkan diri ditindas dan kelihatan lemah kerana tidak mampu berdikari.

"Wanita perlu 'Merdeka' daripada semangat yang rapuh serta jiwa yang mudah terluntur, tuntutlah ilmu walaupun sampai ke negara China sebagai pegangan dalam kehidupan dan binalah kerjaya yang kukuh sebagai jaminan masa depan," katanya ketika ditemui Bernama di Astro Bukit Jalil di sini, baru-baru ini.

The Taste Of 1Malaysia Through Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock

By Soon Li Wei

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- The shop named "Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock" near Jalan Petaling tends to rouse the curiousity of passers-by.

The name itself is unique. The exterior, meanwhile, suggests that it is a shop selling antiques or artifacts from the 1950s.

Those who venture into the premises, though, would be pleasantly surprised to find that it is in fact a "kopitiam".

Diari Delhi: Farmasi Orang Miskin New Delhi

Koresponden Bernama di New Delhi, M.Santhiran berkongsi diari kehidupannya di ibu negara India yang mengandungi banyak keunikan sosial

NEW DELHI (Bernama) -- Bagi kebanyakan kita di Malaysia, bila mana kita perlu mendapatkan rawatan, kita hanya perlu memilih sama ada hendak ke hospital atau klinik.

Selepas berjumpa doktor, kita hanya perlu pergi ke farmasi di hospital atau klinik yang sama untuk mendapatkan ubat.

Biasanya farmasi ini terletak di bangunan yang sama dan anda mungkin perlu membayar untuk ubat atau mendapatnya secara percuma.

Bagaimanapun, anda jangan bermimpi untuk mendapat kemudahan yang seumpama itu di India.

'Doktor Beg' Ubati Beg 'Sakit'

Oleh Soon Li Wei

KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama) -- Satu ketika dahulu suri rumah Cheng Hor Kie, 43, buntu dengan beg sekolah anaknya yang seringkali mengalami kerosakan di bahagian zip.

Meskipun hanya mengalami kerosakan kecil, Cheng terpaksa membuang beg lama dan menggantikannya dengan yang baharu dengan harganya boleh mencecah lebih RM60 satu. Apalagi, beliau tidak pun tahu cara untuk membaikinya.

Bagi golongan berpendapatan rendah seperti Cheng, beg sekolah bukan satu yang murah apatah lagi dengan kos sara hidup yang semakin tinggi dewasa ini.

Namun sejak sebulan lalu, Cheng sekeluarga dapat menarik nafas lega apabila jirannya memperkenalkan kepadanya sebuah kedai khusus untuk membaiki segala jenis kerosakan pada beg.

'Lurking Woods' - It's The Script That Matters

By Salbiah Said

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 12 (Bernama) -- While directors and actors tend to get the lion's share of glory, filmmakers would be lost without a good script written by a talented screenwriter.

To quote Alfred Hitchcock: "To make a great film you need three things - the script, the script and the script." Jag Pannu who owns Jag Pannu Productions says it was the script that drove him to co-produce 'Lurking Woods' with Rod Manikam, director and owner of Rodman Pictures Pty Ltd.

"The script was fantastic. After reading it, I straight away jumped aboard and became executive producer of 'Lurking Woods.' I found it amazing and an interesting script. That's how I got involved in this project," Pannu told Bernama Lifestyle and Youth (LnY).

Rod Manikam - The Man Behind 'Lurking Woods'

By Salbiah Said

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 12 (Bernama) -- The trophy for Best Film at Hollywood's annual Academy Awards doesn't go to the winning movie's director or to its screen stars.

Rather, it's presented to the producers. What does a producer do, exactly? "Everything...from head to tail. What we do is we start pre-production, get an idea, get the story out, work on the story, work out the budget and get investors," says Penang-born Rod Manikam, who owns Australian-based Rodman Pictures Pty Ltd.

"He makes sure everything is run smoothly, from food, catering to camera crew, makeup artiste, sound, post production and not forgetting the marketing after that," he told Bernama Lifestyle and Youth (LnY) in an exclusive interview recently.
