PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has begun its internal investigation into the leaked closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage connected to the death of Kim Jong-Nam at klia2. Its managing director Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said he deeply regretted the incident in which the video recording was illicitly obtained and aired by the foreign media. He said MAHB's security unit had also lodged a police report about it on Monday. "We deeply regret the leakage of the recording considering that it is very sensitive evidence. Plus, the airport is a restricted area that cannot be conveniently trespassed (by anyone)," he told Bernama. Badlisham said MAHB was now working with the government on the case and had handed over the copy of the recording to the police on Feb 14. "The master copy is still with us as we are the operator for klia2," he said.

Incredible MailChimp Benefit ($2,500) Even if I wasnt able to get Caesars Diamond status or any other program’s elite status, I still would not have regretted my decision to apply for FoundersCard thanks to the MailChimp benefit included in the membership. For anyone who runs a business or blog, having an email newsletter is essential. I was already using MailChimp for email marketing, so when I found out that FoundersCard offers a one-time $2,500 account credit to every member, I was surprised at how easily I'd be able to take advantage of my new membership. Equinox Gym Membership Discount ($385) Since moving to NYC a few weeks ago, I joined the Equinox gym. After signing up for FoundersCard, I was delighted to see that it offers a preferred monthly Equinox rate of $190 for FoundersCard members. Equinox’s membership tier that offers access most of its locations was quoted to me for $225 a month, so I’m now going to get $35 off for my subsequent months' dues.

Milo has exposed their liberal thuggery and we think free speech includes hearing Milo’s important perspective.” Yiannopoulos posted a statement to his Facebook Sunday night titled, “A note for idiots,” in which he wrote, “I do not support pedophilia. Period. It is a vile and disgusting crime, perhaps the very worst.” He wrote that the videos circulating were “selectively edited,” and that he regretted using the wordboy” in his comments. Schlapp said in his statement that the Facebook post was “insufficient.” Some prominent conservatives seemed to suggest that CPAC had provoked the maelstrom by tying itself to such a controversial figure. “The Milo Test,” wrote Charlie Sykes, a conservative former radio host who has written critically of the Republican Party since the rise of Trump. “Anti-Semitism, ok. Racism, ok. Alt Right, ok. Advocacy of pedophilia? Is THAT the bridge too far?” Alex Isenstadt contributed reporting to this story.

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang MCA regretted that the state government did not give any response to the protest memorandum on the location of the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta programme handed over to Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the end of January. The chairman of the Complaints Bureau of the Penang MCA Youth, Ooi Teik Liang said the bureau reiterated that the organising of the annual fiesta at the Polo Ground opposite the Penang General Hospital (HPP) was unsuitable and should be stopped. "We received nine complaints from family members of patients who were unhappy that they were caught in a traffic congestion for about 20 minutes while trying to take patients to the hospital," he told reporters here today. He said the noise coming from the fiesta area had also disturbed the patients at the hospital. In addition, he said, the 1,200 parking lots provided by the organisers were inadequate and resulted in vehicles being parked illegally and causing traffic congestions.

I've often harped on about how futile it is to have regrets. Akin to guilt, regrets are so pointless. If you focus on feeling guilty it's a never ending spiral of negativity, much like regret. You end up berating yourself for the decisions you made, the choices you chose and the things you have done and likely you'll end up feeling guilty and then you'll end up regretting even thinking about the thing you regretted in the first place. Are you keeping up at the back?! I try really hard to regret nothing in my life and instead prefer to learn from my mistakes. Like I've said before, life doesn't come with a manual and we're all capable of making blunders, we're only human after all. However, sometimes I'll think back on some of the things I've done in my 30 years on this planet and I literally want to shake myself and say "what the FUCK were you thinking?" Some of these blunders will be menial.

PETALING JAYA: MCA has called on DAP leaders Lim Kit Siang and Lim Guan Eng to accept the blame for empowering PAS. MCA Publicity Bureau chairman Senator Datuk Chai Kim Sen said both the senior party leaders should be held accountable following the admission made by the four elected representatives who resigned from the party. "The three DAP state assemblymen and one MP had confessed that they had campaigned for PAS in the last general election on DAP's orders. "They regretted it and apologised for misleading the voters into believing that PAS had abandoned its goal of implementing a theocratic state, which would instead be replaced with a welfare state," Chai said in a statement today. He said DAP's assistance had emboldened PAS, which in turn allowed the party to be more aggressive in widening its influence. Chai also said that Guan Eng had coldly responded with a "let it pass" remark, when he was asked about the Private Member's Bill tabled by PAS on Act 355 in 2015.

The shower was great and afterward, I felt much more awake and ready for my transcon flight back home. The lounge was also the perfect place to do a little plane spotting, although I didn't get to see anything too exciting since this area of the terminal is where many of the gates for regional jets are located. Boarding I made my way to the gate about 20 minutes before we were scheduled to board. When I got there, however, I learned that we'd have a small delay because the plane that was going to bring us to New York hadn't arrived yet — I instantly regretted leaving that amazing lounge when I did. Because of my first-class ticket, I was one of the first to board the plane through the Delta SkyPriority lane. Cabin and Seat This particular 757 was equipped with first class, Comfort+ and Main Cabin seats. The main cabin was divided into 44 Comfort+ seats arranged in a 3-3 layout with 35 inches of pitch, and 108 standard Main Cabin seats, also in a 3-3 arrangement, with anywhere from 31-33 inches of pitch.

He regretted that business community of both countries is inclined to do business with Europe or other Western countries instead of doing business with each other. Former ambassador noted that Iran has assured Pakistan that its relations with India will not be at the cost of its friendly ties with Pakistan. Expressing his views on US President Donald Trump he said the new US president is just playing with the emotions of the people. “Initially he is trying to show his people that he is doing exactly as what he had promised to his voters in the election campaign,” said the diplomat. “Donald Trump is not implementing all the things which he had said during election campaign because in that case US will not be very powerful,” he viewed. Ambassador Khalid Mahmood said, I dont think there would be much change in Pak-US ties; Trump wants to have strong ties with India for many reasons; it is a big market and a rival to China.

IFP- Indian Ambassador to Tehran Saurabh Kumar maintains that his country has strong ties with Iran, saying cooperation as well as economic and trade transactions between the two nations will definitely increase. According to a report by IFP, Kumar said Indian investors are keen to participate in Iranian petrochemical projects. The main axis of the growing economic relations between Iran and India is their present cooperation in the development of Chabahar Port, in southeast Iran, he added in a Farsi interview with ILNA. He further regretted that Iranian media recently labelled India an indebted state and accused it of lacking determination to make its overdue payments to Tehran. Expounding on the state of payments between the two sides, Kumar said India has entirely settled its oil debts to Iran. “The two sides’ trade balance is currently in Iran’s favour due to the country’s larger amount exports to India.

After it aired, Spicer had proposed cracking a joke about the send-up during his next briefing, or even firing a squirt gun, as McCarthy had done in the sketch. Trump vetoed the idea, according to one person briefed on the matter. Spicer, a 45-year-old party operative who rose through the ranks of the Republican National Committee, has told several people that he finds the non-stop demands of the position difficult. For now, the president is standing by his press secretary. After CNN reported Tuesday that Trump regretted hiring Spicer and was disappointed in him, the president spoke with his press secretary and told him that he was in fine shape. Trump, who has been reluctant to admit any missteps, also has acknowledged to Spicer that it was a mistake to send him to the White House briefing room on the administration’s first full day to berate reporters for coverage of his inauguration crowd size.

Its stance angered many EU members. In December, Britain also scolded then U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a speech criticizing Israeli policy. May told Netanyahu Britain was a "strong and close friend of Israel" and highlighted their co-operation in science, trade and security. Their meeting had an awkward start as the Israeli prime minister arrived early at Downing Street, meaning May was not there to greet him. Having entered her office alone, he returned outside minutes later for the customary handshake. Small groups of pro-Palestinian and pro-Israeli protesters gathered outside Downing Street and Jeremy Corbyn, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party, said May's stance on settlements was not good enough. "Theresa May must make clear to the Israeli prime minister that the British government will stand unequivocally behind the rights of the Palestinian people," said Corbyn, who once described members of Palestinian group Hamas and Lebanon's Hezbollah as friends in comments he later said he regretted.

"All in all, there was extreme aggressiveness and violence from Dortmund supporters, which was directed against any person recognised as a Leipzig fan, regardless of whether they were small children, women or families," said Dortmund police. "In connection with this, four officers and a police dog were injured." Borussia Dortmund said they "deeply regretted the riots" and wished the injured Leipzig fans a speedy recovery. RB Leipzig, who are backed by energy drinks giant Red Bull, are widely unpopular amongst German fans for the commercialism the club is perceived to represent, but Dortmund fans were particularly unwelcoming. There were several offensive banners in the Dortmund stadium aimed at RB, including "Burnout Ralph, go hang yourself!" after Leipzig's sports director Ralf Rangnick resigned from Schalke in 2011 with burnout. — AFP

Iranians, whose own revolutionary enterprise was consolidated via illegally seizing the U.S. embassy in Tehran and holding its personnel as hostages, should recognize the domestic political utility of diplomatic incivility. However, while the insult to Iranians was almost surely intentional, the entry ban will likely be regretted, even by its own architects. The alienation of Iranians and others impacted by the ban may be convenient for Team Trump’s domestic political agenda, but together with the broader fallout from the ban around the world, it will undercut what is intended to be an ambitious diplomatic game plan for countering Iran. Washington can do very little on Iran in isolation; even unilateral American sanctions rely on compliance from governments and businesses around the world, and the military effort to counter Iranian influence in Iraq, Yemen, Bahrain, and Syria will require robust and effective cooperation with regional partners.

Step 5: Ending a Difficult Conversation Whether you end in agreement or disagreement (or something in between), there's always the option to politely end the discussion. Some options I find helpful are: Thank you for taking the time to talk with me, Jane. I know we don't agree on XYZ, but I respect your opinion and for speaking up constructively here. Jane, I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with me. At this point I hear you and feel I understand your point of view, but don't have anything else to add to the conversation. I'm going to focus on new conversations, but my (online) door is open to new discussions in the future. There's no reason that a conversation that starts with an insult or tough angle has to end with one. I have never once regretted not being tougher on someone online. But I have sure as heck regretted not ending one with more kindness and love.

Kampung Sri Makmur is home to some 50 Rohingya families who fled Myanmar following decades of crisis between the ethnic Muslim minority and the Buddhist-dominated government. This small community in Gombak is one of the many settlements of Rohingya refugees scattered around Selayang. Another refugee, Muhamad Toyob Nurramad, 31, who is the acknowledged leader in the community, said most of the houses were rented for between RM400 and RM500 a month. "We live at the mercy of the landlords, and we will be forced to move out if they say so. Life is indeed hard for most of us," he said, adding that he had heard rumours that the land would be developed for a housing project. Asked whether he regretted coming to Malaysia, Muhamad Toyob said: "Living here is definitely not the paradise we had been searching for, but at least we are not constantly under the threat of death.
