How to Make Mind Map

14 12 2009

Well, first, KISASians ,  don’t be jealous, I had finished BM,BI,SEJ,BIO,CHEM holiday packages!! huhu..

But that’s not my main topic for now, today I wanna talk about a software that I’ve found while finding a way to do the BM Package.I thought I wanna share it with you guys….

Okay,for my blog visitors, if you wanna know,we’re given a task to finish all the holiday packages of 12 subjects during this holiday .. (it;s everyone’s nightmare,of course)

One of them is Bahasa Melayu folio making where we need to come out with 5 mind map on  the title below:

1) Bencana alam

2) Masalah kesesakan jalan raya

3) Masalah buta teknologi dalam kalangan masyarakat

4) Masalah ponteng sekolah dalam kalangan pelajar

5) Perpaduan

For every topic,there must be 3 elements that is Punca/Masalah,Kesan/Kepentingan,Langkah Mengatasi.

So yesterday I tried to push my heavy butt to work on this by using Microsoft Word.To my shock,it;s really hard to do even by making use of the SmartArt graphic ( btw,i’m using Word  2007).So,while I was searching in the net,I came across this wonderful mind mapping software called Xmind.This software will make mindmapping in computer as easy as typing..(well,is it the correct comparison?,never mind =) ).It is also user friendly,after I download it,I am on a mindmapping frenzy in no time.

I think this software is really good for us as students.You can use this to make note making ,organising your tasks, and finishing assignment easier.You can also choose from various mindmap structure such as fishbone,logic chart,tree,organisation(can be used to create organisational chart easily)

Here some screenies:

So now,maybe you’re wondering where to download this,right?

KB Mall Freak Accident: Another Vintage Point

9 12 2009

Quoted from subtlefortitude.wordpress.com

HE’S THE GUY TRYING TO SAVE THE DEAD GIRL IN THE VIDEO (shouting kain…kain!!)

KB Mall 6 Dis ‘09 : Before the Memory fades from my old temporal lobe and life returns the Usual.

The sales person handed me the change for my wife’s new Sony Ericcson. I quickly put the clamshell into my left pocket ….”Translate: Better not lose it if I needed my hands busy”. Made my way through the crowd less than 1 minute after the booommm. Went stupidly close to the upturned car to take pictures with my handphone (fortunately the car didn’t explode). Through my phone’s screen, I saw a figure lying in a nurse’s uniform in left lateral position 10 feet in front of Watson’s. Nobody was within 5 feet of her.

.
I hurried to her left and squatted. Saw some movement of her head. Helped by a lady (later found out to be a seasoned clinic nurse) to turn her supine …. I tried maintaining relative immobility of her head. (later realized forgotten the proper way).

.
The moment I touched her, the same old thought crossed the mind “You are my patient … Allah has intended it to be so for reasons only He knows”

.
“So much blood from her mouth !!! What to do? In hospital simply suction then intubate” There’s obvious neck muscle movements but nothing else moves. “There must be a pulse coz she’s moving. But how to give her oxygen?”.
Tried opening her mouth. Crackling sensation accompanied . Her maxillary bone was fractured.

.
Looking at her chest … she appeared the “normal figure” with uniform on. “Should I expose her?? Naah … better not. Can get beaten for indecent behaviour. This is Kelantan”. Tried to pull her tudung to clear the blood of her face and out her mouth. But her head was on her tudung … could’t do it without moving her head.

.
“Ya Allah … the clock is ticking. I need to do something. Eeemm ..Why not try chest compression. If no cracking sensation and good recoil, her rib cage should be intact” Gave few short ones … felt okay. Then gave her the full blown 100/min in 30s … though may have overdone it to 150/min following my own adrenaline-rushed heart rate.

.
“Kain!Kain !Kain!! (meaning cloth)” I blurted it out continuously.”Please la, someone hand me something to wipe out all this blood from her mouth”. (Surprised to hear myself later on youtube shouting “kain,kain”). Pop … a pair of white sport socks dropped onto my lap. Well ..better then nothing.

.
Wiped the blood of her lips. Felt her maxillary bone fragments crackling again. No point asking anyone to do the jaw thrust. “Emmm .. my 7half-size-glove left hand may just stretch enough for my index finger and thumb to hold both her jaw angles”. Tried it. “Alhamdulillah, this may just work”. And the concavity of my left hand’s first web space held her fragmented maxilla good enough for her lip to move apart.

.
“Direct mouth to mouth?…. Better not. I’d vomit if swallowed her blood. And again this is Kelantan”. “HIV,Hepatitis B,C ….no worry. All student nurses are screened. . I do their RMEs all the time.”
Placed the blood stained sock on her opened lip and gave her the first rescue breath. ‘No can do .”. The air just dissipated through the thick sport socks. No chest rise.

.
“Kain .. kain …kain!!”. Again I blurted out. Pop … a white kain tudung dropped onto her face. “This is better..Surely I can breathe better thru it compared to the thick socks”.

.
And so I gave her rescue breaths, realizing only 1 in every 2-3 breaths was followed by a chest rise. Continuously adjusting my left hand grip on her jaws and at the same time feeling her right carotid pulse with my left ring and little finger. Frequently reapplying and folding the kain tudung to breath thru to her until it became fully blood soaked. Occasionally having to spit out my blood stained saliva or wiping my face with my shirt … occasionally having to hold back the strong urge to vomit.

.
On off pausing to see any spontaneous breathing. She was still trying to catch her own breathe … but to no avail.
Noticed few others coming to help me .. though didn’t have the time to look at their faces. A guy kneeled and whispered “LailahaillAllah” continuously to her right ear. Indeed, his voice was helping her in the most important way … much more than what my blood stained hands and lips could.

.
Another came to try persuade me to turn her to the left lateral position. I resisted. “Should I tell everyone that I’m a doctor??…”. My low self esteem kicked into gear … so I didn’t and kept quiet. Some other guy who probably had some old school CPR training gave 5 chest compressions every time I paused from my rescue breaths. No point reminding him that it’s unnecessary when there’s patient movement and a pulse. Detrimental to her? Not too sure myself. Perhaps she could do with the adrenaline surge from his chest compressions. “Let him be, he’s trying his best to help. Just don’t stop to long from my rescue breaths or he’ll start pressing again”

.
It felt like the longest wait for the ambulance. The constant recitation of “LailahaillAllah” kept reminding me that none of us has any power unless what Allah lends to us. None of us could do anything to change what He had decreed for the girl.

.
”What more can I do ??? Primary and secondary survey perhaps, then cardiac monitoring. What about running intravenous fluids and packed cells?”. “Hey, is there an ultrasound machine on sale here in KB mall I can use for a FAST … my patient sure is turning pale!!” I would be kidding myself to have had such thoughts. Between my rescue breaths , feeling of helplessness ever grows.
The pool of her blood began seeping through my wet pants to my knees. She was bleeding … and it’s not from her mouth. “Clinically cervical injury with comminuted maxillary bone fracture”. Even a 1st year meds school student knows that diagnoses usually comes after “Severe Head Injury”, not before it.
As her pupils began to react sluggishly and dilate, her carotid pulse brady and weak .. I began to wonder whether I’m torturing her and delaying the inevitable. Should I have just watched her from the sideline from the beginning. A pakcik wearing a kopiah tapped my right shoulder and asked me to let her go. “What should I do??” Am I her doctor to pronounce her DIL (Death in line) in public.? Or am I just a bystander who should continue doing the basic until proper help arrives??

.

“Thinking about it now .. I didn’t delay the inevitable. Allah has taken her the very second she was written to be .. in a place where no one would aspect to be in an MVA (motorvehicle accident). Looking back at it now … I was helping the other man as long as he can to remind her of Allah’s oneness LailahaillAllah. She barely moved, but I hope she was listening … and her heart accepting.
As she became very pale , I began giving chest compressions. Her blood pressure must be very low .. she’s gasping but I hardly felt her pulse. “Pushing blood to the brain” was how we crudely relate about chest compression at the casualty unit … sometimes joking about it.

.
I could hear sirens wailing for minutes. As the guys on my left and right began stepping back out of my hindsight, I was left alone again with the dying girl. And as the paramedics placed their emergency bag on the floor, I requested an oropharyngeal airway. They obliged. Placed it in her mouth, and gave her 2 good rescue breaths. Requested the laryngoscope and an endotracheal tube ETT. Gave more rescue breaths and attempted intubation. The ETT without an introducer stylet wouldn’t bend upward thru her cords. Sure took a while for the paramedic to find the introducer.

.
Post intubation, an honorable fellow doctor helped to ascertain air entry and cervical collar placement. Again the public lend in their hands for a perfect supine lift of her onto the stretcher.

.
After a few words with the paramedic, I quickly made my way through the crowd as I’ve given the Sony Ericsson box to a bystander. I gave her one last look across my shoulder and realized I have forgotten one last important thing.

.
I walked back to her …. took the fully blood stained kain tudung which had been the lifeline between me and her, and placed it onto her exposed neck and upper chest. She was a Muslim .. so let me leave her as one. That night I learned from TV3 news she passed away on the way to hospital.

.
Al-Fatihah … may Allah accept her as a Muslim and a Mukmin. Amin.





KB Mall Collapses ?!!!

6 12 2009

Woahh….A provocative headlines,isn’t it?!!

Well, the truth is it’s NOT REAL

The Real Thing: A car boarded by 3 men at the roof parking space had crashed  onto a wall and thus fall down into the mall.TV1 news report says that ” the car was out of control before crashing to the the wall …”. People including my family was speculating whether the men are high on drugs or drunk on the moment of the scene..

Well, I leave it to you guys to try make your own conclusion.Here’s the pictures (credit  ntvirus.files.wordpress.com) :

Fastaqim Kama Umirta

26 11 2009

Well, for the KISASians out there, I know you can predict what I will write after this.

This pieces of word is not just words …it’s actually a verse from the Holy Quran, Surah Hud (verse 112) but it had been made as my school’s motto and been embedded on our school badge..

Maybe this words are easy to be said,shouted,and pronounced with fury,spirit and a good will but did you know that this words had turned Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) hair gray?

It is related in a hadith that Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) once came out of his house, wiping his hands on his blessed beared. Abu Bakr and Umar R.A. were sitting in the Masjid at that time. When AbuBakr R.A. saw this he said: ‘O Messenger of Allah, may my father and mother be sacrificed for you. How early you have aged’. Then he began to weep. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alaihe wasallam) said: “Surahs like Surah Hud have made me old”.

It demands us to be consistent and istiqamah in all of our doings as a Muslim.However,talking is as easy as ABC.Me myself found it very hard to continue to do what I’ve done and being taught at KISAS such as performing solat early,reciting ma’surat,al Mulk before sleep and reciting the Quran.I want to thank all my friends that advised me before coming home this holiday especially Thariqians that Imam Ghazali told in one of his Books, every three days that passed without reciting any Holy verses from the Quran, a black spot will emerge in our heart until a phase where our inner heart will be completely covered with the black spots.It will make us hard to understand lessons and to receive advices from other people.

The truth is,the difficulty to be consistent or istiqamah in our doings is caused by lot of temptations in our respective houses.Internet,games,family,friends,events …all of this had made istiqamah almost impossible..

Can you believe that only the earlier days of my return to home this holiday that I had performed all my doings in KISAS?!

It;s hard…Even the blessed prophet is having trouble to do it….

But remember, The Struggle in This World is Bitter, Because The Reward In the Hereafter is Sweet.

So long….





Islam and The World (A View of a 16 yrold Student)

23 11 2009

Woahh..a pretty heavy topic,  i’ll say.But I will try to make it as simple as possible according to what I believe.

This thing popped out from my mind after hearing something for my relative last night.She is venting her anger on me about a man wearing a ‘kopiah’  driving carelessly and relentlessly on the road.Then,she added,making global statement about Muslims all over the world giving a bad image for the only one true religion in the world.Furthemore, according to her experience, usually the ustaz and ustazah in school wearing untidy attire,sometimes dirty… and always opposing and very conservative, like to object everyone’s decision.

In my opinion all the nasty things being bombarded towards Islam is the fault of the Muslims itself.I’m not saying that all ustaz and ustazah are like that but “One Rotten Apple Spoils the Whole Barrell”.The ustaz and ustazah in my school are different.They are the people who I think lead the science teachers in terms of thinking and IT skills.I got a culture shock when I first came here seeing these respected people doing some complex computer works and assignments.This is what we want to see in a true Muslim and Muslimat.

Yea,, I’ve seen alot of these things that bring shame to the only true religion i the whole world.Terrorists burning houses and went on a killing spree on the streets,bombing hotels and public places by making ISLAM as the reason are for me the most threatening people to my beloved religion.In my school,for example,there are a type of students who are so extremists that they are hypersensitive to programmes held by the school or NGO.If there is something that had to do with the religion,even the most smallest one,they will start to become so “jumud” or very conservative.

I think this is the reason why Islam become the most backward and had the worst reputation for being a terrorist religion.

I know that I am stil a 16 years old student and do not know anything about life and bla…bla..bla… but as far as I know Islam is not like what these people that I had written before do.Islam is the Way of Life to Success in Life and Hereafter.If not,why had Prophet Muhammad and his Companion followed by Caliphate and Abbasids,Ottoman had achieved a level of worldly success while not neglecting the effort to Hereafter’s Success.Think of It,my brothers and sisters.

I think that’s all for this time.Not too much or it will become a boring post.Actually there’s alot to say and explain but for now,this is it.Look at these pictures and take lesson and try to improve ourselves in the future.

 





New Interest

22 11 2009

I’m playing Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War Dark Crusade no.It’s a pretty good game.It’s kinda recaptures my imagination when I was a child about space battles like stars wars, star trooper,doom and something like that.

In the game, I prefer playing as the Tau Empire.I like the race’s niche area in ranged combat.The fire warriors and the Kroot thingies produce the best combination of force.

The detailed animation and spectacular effects made this game stands out from other similar games.You could see some bloodiest and and breathtaking battles in this game.

My strategy is using the Kroot clan to take on the enemy at close combat and Fire Warriors as the backup,pounding enemy with  fatal burst of plasma beam.I always use the Mon;tka strategy because of the Hammerhead gunship superior firepower.

There is also a mega trainer with a lot options.But i recommend you to get the best game experience turn off the unlimited resource option coz  the race to control all the strategic points on the map made the game interesting.

For all the RTS gamers out there, I recommend this game if you want a good and long lasting strategy game

 

p/S: Check the DOWNLOADS section for the mega trainer link and mod tool.
