Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bone Disease)

Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) or better known as Brittle Bone Disease, is a congenital disease, meaning, it is present at birth.Source . This disease is often misinterperted with Child Abuse as the of fracture that are almost the same.

Example of OI and Child Abuse typical bone fractures:

  • fractures in multiple stages of healing
  • rib fractures
  • spiral fractures
  • fractures for which there is no adequate explanation of trauma.


The disease is classified by type:

  • Type 1 - Mild -- The person has a normal life expectancy.
  • Type 2 - Lethal -- The baby is born dead or dies shortly after birth.
  • Type 3 - Progressively deforming -- Life expectancy is shorter than normal.
  • Type 4 - Moderately severe, but varies greatly -- Most people have a normal lifespan.
  • Type 5 - Moderately deforming --Bones are somewhat fragile. This type is inherited from a parent.
  • Type 6 - Moderately to severely deforming --Bones are somewhat fragile. The cause is unknown.
  • Type 7 -- Moderately deforming --Bones are somewhat fragile. This type is found only in a small community of Native Americans.


Alternative names: Brittle bone disease

Definition :Osteogenesis imperfecta is a condition causing extremely fragile bones.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors :
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a congenital disease, meaning it is present at birth. It is caused by a genetic defect that affects type 1 collagen, an important building block of bone. This defect can occur in several ways.

The defect may be inherited from a mother or father with OI.

It may be caused by a mutation in the egg or sperm that created the child. In this case, neither parent has the gene for OI or the disease itself.

It may be inherited from a parent with eggs or sperm that carry the gene for OI, even if that parent does not have the disease.

In a person with OI, all bones are weak. How this affects the person varies greatly. For example, babies with type 2 OI rarely survive, yet type 1 OI may be so mild that the disease never produces symptoms.

Although their bones are fragile, not everyone with OI breaks a bone. Some people with OI also lose their hearing early in life. The whites of their eyes may have a blue tint (blue sclerae).

Signs and tests:
A physical examination may confirm fractures, deformities, and other symptoms.

Bone X-Ray may show many healed fractures.

The diagnosis of OI is made by collagen studies done on a skin punch biopsy. Family members may be given a DNA blood test. Pregnant women may have a DNA test done using prenatal chorionic villus samples (CVS) to diagnose the baby before it is born.

Severe OI can be seen on ultrasound when the fetus is as young as 16 weeks.

Racism in Malaysia

Got this from another blog which he got it from Wikipedia...

I have no idea to what extend this is true.. but it undoubtedly makes a good read..

Malaysia has an official policy of race categorization and openly discriminates in favor of bumiputra Malays and against other races, especially ethnic Chinese and Indians. This discrimination includes education, business ownership and government employment. This policy is known as Ketuanan Melayu or Malay Supremacy.
List of racial discriminations in Malaysia:

1) Out of all the 5 major banks, only one bank is multi-racial, the rest are controlled by malays

(2) 99% of Petronas directors are malays

(3) 3% of Petronas employees are Chinese

(4) 99% of 2000 Petronas gasoline stations are owned by malays

(5) 100% all contractors working under Petronas projects must be bumis status

(6) 0% of non-malay staffs is legally required in malay companies. But there must be 30% malay staffs in Chinese companies.

(7) 5% of all new intake for government police, nurses, army, is non-malays.

(8) 2% is the present Chinese staff in Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF), drop from 40% in 1960

(9) 2% is the percentage of non-malay government servants in Putrajaya. But malays make up 98%

(10) 7% is the percentage of Chinese government servants in the whole government (in 2004), drop from 30% in 1960

(11) 95% of government contracts are given to malays

(12) 100% all business licensees are controlled by malay government e.g. Taxi permits, Approved permits, etc

(13) 80% of the Chinese rice millers in Kedah had to be sold to malay controlled Bernas in 1980s. Otherwise, life is make difficult for Chinese rice millers

(14) 100 big companies set up, owned and managed by Chinese Malaysians were taken over by government, and later managed by malays since 1970s e.g. UTC, UMBC, MISC, etc

(15) At least 10 Chinese owned bus companies (throughout Malaysia, throughout 40 years) had to be sold to MARA or other malay transport companies due to rejection by malay authority to Chinese application for bus routes and rejection for their application for new buses

(16) 2 Chinese taxi drivers were barred from driving in Johor Larkin bus station. There are about 30 taxi drivers and 3 are Chinese in October 2004. Spoiling taxi club properties was the reason given

(17) 0 non-malays are allowed to get shop lots in the new Muar bus station (November 2004)

(18) 8000 billions ringgit is the total amount the government channeled to malay pockets
through ASB, ASN, MARA, privatisation of government agencies, Tabung Haji etc, through NEP over 34 years period

(19) 48 Chinese primary schools closed down since 1968 - 2000

(20) 144 Indian primary schools closed down since 1968 - 2000

(21) 2637 malay primary schools built since 1968 - 2000

(22) 2.5% is government budget for Chinese primary schools. Indian schools got only 1%, malay schools got 96.5%

(23) While a Chinese parent with RM1000 salary (monthly) cannot get school-text-book-loan, a malay parent with RM2000 salary is eligible

(24) 10 all public universities vice chancellors are malays

(25) 5% - the government universities lecturers of non-malay origins had been reduced from about 70% in 1965 to only 5% in 2004

(26) Only 5% is given to non-malays for government scholarships over 40 years

(27) 0 Chinese or Indians were sent to Japan and Korea under "Look East Policy"

(28) 128 STPM Chinese top students could not get into the course that they aspired i.e. Medicine (in 2004)

(29) 10% place for non-bumi students for MARA science schools beginning from year 2003, but only 7% are filled. Before that it was 100% malays

(30) 50 cases whereby Chinese and Indian Malaysians, are beaten up in the National Service program in 2003

(31) 25% is Malaysian Chinese population in 2004, drop from 45% in 1957

(32) 7% is the present Malaysian Indians population (2004), a drop from 12% in 1957

(33) 2 millions Chinese Malaysians had emigrated to overseas since 40 years ago

(34) 0.5 million Indian Malaysians had emigrated to overseas

(35) 3 millions Indonesians had migrated into Malaysia and became Malaysian citizens with bumis status.

(36) 600000 are the Chinese and Indians Malaysians with red IC and were rejected repeatedly when applying for citizenship for 40 years. Perhaps 60% of them had already passed away due to old age. This shows racism of how easily Indonesians got their citizenships compare with the Chinese and Indians

(37) 5% - 15% discount for a malay to buy a house, regardless whether the malay is rich or poor

(38) 2% is what Chinese new villages get compare with 98% of what malay villages got for rural development budget

(39) 50 road names (at least) had been change from Chinese names to other names

(40) 1 Dewan Gan Boon Leong (in Malacca) was altered to other name (e.g. Dewan Serbaguna or sort) when it was being officially used for a few days. Government try to shun Chinese names. This racism happened in around year 2000 or sort

(41) 0 temples/churches were built for each housing estate. But every housing estate got at least one mosque/surau built

(42) 3000 mosques/surau were built in all housing estates throughout Malaysia since 1970. No temples, no churches are required to be built in housing estates

(43) 1 Catholic church in Shah Alam took 20 years to apply to be constructed. But told by malay authority that it must look like a factory and not look like a church. Still not yet approved in 2004

(44) 1 publishing of Bible in Iban language banned (in 2002)

(45) 0 of the government TV stations (RTM1, RTM2, TV3) are directors of non-malay origins

(46) 30 government produced TV dramas and films always showed that the bad guys had Chinese face, and the good guys had malay face. You can check it out since 1970s. Recent years, this tendency becomes less

(47) 10 times, at least, malays (especially Umno) had threatened to massacre the Chinese Malaysians using May 13 since 1969

(48) 20 constituencies won by DAP would not get funds from the government to develop. Or these Chinese majority constituencies would be the last to be developed

(49) 100 constituencies (parliaments and states) had been racistly re-delineated so Chinese voters were diluted that Chinese candidates, particularly DAP candidates lost in election since 1970s

(50) Only 3 out of 12 human rights items are ratified by Malaysia government since 1960

(51) 0 - elimination of all forms of racial discrimination (UN Human Rights) is not ratified by Malaysia government since 1960s

(52) 20 reported cases whereby malay ambulance attendances treated Chinese patients inhumanely, and malay government hospital staffs purposely delay attending to Chinese patients in 2003. Unreported cases may be 200

(53) 50 cases each year whereby Chinese, especially Chinese youths being beaten up by malay youths in public places. We may check at police reports provided the police took the report, otherwise there will be no record

(54) 20 cases every year whereby Chinese drivers who accidentally knocked down malays were seriously assaulted or killed by malays

(55) 12% is what ASB/ASN got per annum while banks fixed deposit is only about 3.5% per annum.

There are hundreds more racial discriminations in Malaysia to add to this list of "colossal" racism. It is hope that the victims of racism will write in to expose racism. Malaysia government should publish statistics showing how much malays had benefited from the "special rights" of malays and at the same time tell the statistics of how much other minority races are being discriminated.

Hence, the responsibility lies in the Malaysia government itself to publish unadulterated statistics of racial discrimination. If the Malaysia government hides the statistics above, then there must be some evil doings, immoral doings, shameful doings and sinful doings, like the Nazi, going on onto the non-malays of Malaysia.Civilized nation, unlike evil Nazi, must publish statistics to show its treatment on its minority races. This is what Malaysia must publish………

We are asking for the publication of the statistics showing how "implementation of special rights of malays" had inflicted colossal racial discrimination onto non-malays.

Mathematical Fun!

I bet you wanna a Graphic Calculator now huh...

Lonely No More!!

I need not to worry feeling bored with mathz anymore!

No more shall i ever feel lonely anymore!

It is Smaller then a GC!!

It has fat content!! 8G of it!!

It is my new girlfriend!!!

My new iPod!

Make Peace!

Today, while I was walking out of the cinema after watching ghost rider!! (Cool Movie!)

I heard the loud noice (glass breaking and table banging)

I though it was just some usual glass breaking event, but I was wrong!

It was some couple fighting in the middle of Leisure Mall in Little Vietnam!

What the heck is wrong here?
1)Why on earth are they fighting in public?
2)Why do you have to show your temper in public?
3)Why is the guy standing up and looking down at her girlfriend like he is going to beat her up?
4)Why is she crying?
5)Why is everyone looking at them?
6)Why am i looking at them?

But one thing for sure!!

It ain't the way to treat a girl that way!!

Are there no more quality man left in this world?

To all the men out there:
Please recognize women as part of an independent biological entities and at no cause at all should you ever just slam your temper at her.

To all the women out there:
Why in the world would you couple with such guy? Don't you know how to choose?Blind??

Ever wonder,sometime, you do so much of good just to get this world to be a better place and some people just come and destroy it infront of your face?

Guys, come a man..and for once,do the right thing!

And girl, come on..for once in your life, stand up and fight for yourself!

To those of you who are already fighting, good for you!

Remember, you are powerful! you are you!

Guys, plz, dun be selfish and help those who are in needs. Stop abusing your children or your wife, or your girlfriend for god sack! It is not nice.

Try not to lose your temper in public too, it really shows you are emotionally weak! It doesnt matters if you hair is so spike up till "jatuh cicak mati!" or your collar freakyishly open wider than your shoulder! If you lose you, you'll lose all of it!

So, think again how much peacful this world would be, if you have taken a few second thinking before acting!

I care, but, do you?
