I have a JACK Audio setup for my desktop at home for audio production purposes, but pulseaudio stops working on resume from suspend. The fix is to restart pulseaudio. A simple script for this should work and scripts to run after resume reside in /etc/pm/sleep.d

Here is my 20_pulseaudio script in that dir. You have to make it executeable by chmod 755 on it of course:

#!/bin/sh

case "${1}" in
    resume | thaw)
        su kaeru pulseaudio -k

Example of why those in power supposedly supporting to uplift Malay Royalty and Islam are doing this only to push laws to keep themselves in power.

Current Sedition Act after amendments:

(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against any Ruler 
(e) “(ea) to promote feelings of ill will, hostility  or hatred between persons or groups of persons on the ground of religion
or”;
(d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the subjects of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong or of the Ruler of any State

Then Islam definition is further clarified as that being those defined by authorities.

When situations like this happen where the Sultan of Johor as part of his coronation hosts a K-Pop concert (which many of his subjects enjoyed) which breaks JAKIM (Islamic department under Prime Ministers Department) guidelines [1] , then the laws are likely used only  to stop people questioning those in power.

Keep in mind that truth of a statement is not valid defence against charge of Sedition. So in this case, if a confused Malaysian were to ask clarification on what's happening here, they could:

1. Be charged with disrespecting state rulers, if some Malay groups get offended.
2. Also be charged with disrespecting Islam, if some Muslim NGO you've never heard says they're insulted  by your question and going to spill the blood of infidels.

In this situation, it's obvious that these laws have nothing to do with either upholding Malay rights, or Islam, but instead is to be used as an arbitrary powerful law to jail anyone questioning those in power, no matter how ludicrous the contradictions are, and even if the question is based on fact

It's a 3 year minimum jail sentence when the law gets gazetted in a few weeks. 3 years jail. Think about that, for a post such as this.

Full scanned Sedition Act Amendment 2015.

Credit: DAP Research Team

Notable changes:

-  "Against Government" removed
- For cessation eg. Sarawak/Sabah clarified further
- "Against judiciary" removed
- "Against Religion" added
- A section on courts able to order MCMC to block publication of seditious content via electronic means of unidentified  persons
- no bail for 1a (sedition against Ruler)
- travel ban for any of the seditious charges

If you think this is OK, note there is still 1d which is "to raise discontent or disaffection among the people". 

Also you could still be charged under 1a (against ruler), and be in jail even though it might be thrown out later because there is no case, because there is no bail.

Obviously Prime Minister's Jet is higher priority for tax payers funds then an urban teaching public hospital.
 
Would somebody kindly explain why this is happening? Thank you.

Heard budget cuts are affecting teaching hospitals as well as general hospitals all over the country.
A budget cut of RM120 million for University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) this year is causing concern among several doctors over the hospital's ability…

Fixing plumbing in the house. Replacing lightning damaged 3Com 8 port gigabit switch with new TP-Link TL-SG108. The 3Com was a trooper, it kept working for about a year despite 3 dead ports from lightning strike. The TP-Link looks very plain and relatively cheap, but it does the job in keeping this very digital household connected.

Turkey is a good country to watch for precedence on what will be coming our way in Malaysia in terms of state controls on freedom of expression on the Internet.

- Court ordered blocks of major services like Twitter/Youtube
- Jail for posts insulting politicians
A local journalist in Turkey liked a remark criticising President Erdoğan on Facebook. He said he deleted it in 30 minutes, but the court convicted him with a suspended jail sentence

Amendments to Sedition Act tabled today, will do away with possibility of bail. Meaning that should you be charged with Sedition, like murderers you will be jail pending outcome of trial whether guilty or not.

Utterly morally reprehensible. But then again, we are already at the stage where they aren't even trying to appear civil any more.

Introduction
I'm working with a group of other Malaysian developers on the Sinar Project, an effort to empower Malaysian citizens by making government information more transparent and easily accessible through current web and mobile tools.

In 2004, I worked on the International Open Source Network project as part of the UNDP Asia-Pacific Development Information Programme promoting open source, open standards and open content to developing countries in this region.

In what little (if any) personal time left after spending time with my kids, I play basketball, dabble in gardening, playing keyboard and following what's happening in the different fields of design.

Great public park to take the kids out for a picnic. The kids love playing and exploring the water feature as well as the playground. You'll need a car to get here though.

A fairly complete local aquarium that's great fun for the kids. Has a dolphin show, sessions with seals (allowed to touch) and penguins. Other attractions include feeding turtles, and small bridge to a small rocky island.

Serve steaks and burgers, but a meat shop and not really a restaurant. Cooked well, but simply. Best value is if you buy the kalbi slices, tongue and some cuts for home BBQ . Beef bacon and sausages to buy are not too bad either.

Great place for work visits to Jakarta. Free Wi-Fi everywhere, nice rates on studio rooms with kitchen. Laundry facilities for those long stays and a great restaurant.

The food at Chinese vegetarian restaurants are usually very good, and this restaurant is no exception. Let down however by poor service. Appetizers served without chopsticks, forgetting about tea and long wait.
