KUALA LANGAT: A 19-year-old student makes RM20,000 a month from selling Radio Al-Quran, an innovation he conceived when he was just 16. Coming from a poor family of 10 with his father being the sole breadwinner, Muhammad Qais Amiri Jamaluddin knew he had to do his bit to help. “My family was to be featured on BersamaMu, a TV3 programme that focuses on the hardship faced by the poor, but we decided not to appear on TV. That was how tough my family’s life was,” he told theSun in an interview. He started to make money with his friends at the age of 13 by selling football jerseys at Stadium Shah Alam and at morning markets. His fortune picked up after he started selling Radio Al-Quran. It is a radio that contains a memory card with Quranic sermons and talks. “I began with a capital of RM300. I sold 10 units of the radio to the teachers in my school,” said the Kuala Langat community college student from Sungai Buloh. “As Muslims, listening to this radio … [Read more...] about Radio Al-Quran earns teen tidy sum

PGA Tour season starts 17 days after it endedBy DOUG FERGUSON Seventeen days after Rory McIlroy cashed in by winning the FedEx Cup, a new season begins at The Greenbrier. A year ago, there were only 10 open days between the final putt in the Tour Championship (Tiger Woods) and the first shot of the next season (Nick Taylor).

1) CITY, LIVERPOOL, PLEASE LOATHE EACH OTHER Football is a visceral experience. We come for the artistry. We stay for the anger, the honest-to-goodness seething hatred between enemies. Think about this, objectively. What are the most memorable moments in English Premier League history? Kevin Keegan, in his Princess Leia headphones, spitting into a microphone, telling the world how much he'd love it if Manchester United were beaten. He'd love it, because he hated them so much. Or there was Martin Keown, auditioning for Planet of the Apes, jumping all over Ruud van Nistelrooy after the striker missed a penalty. Indeed Arsenal and Manchester United gave us the greatest, hate-infested relationship, serving up Pizzagate and Roy Keane promising to see Patrick Vieira outside. They really were the best of times, uniting tribes against each other in the most compelling of ways. Winning is great, but beating the despised is something else altogether, something truly intoxicating. Thankfully, … [Read more...] about Neil Humphreys: All you need is loathe
