Facebook haram ??????

Kontroversi Seputar Fatwa Haram “Facebook”

Boomingnya layanan situs jejaring sosial, seperti facebook, friendster maupun chatting untuk menjalin hubungan pertemanan diam-diam diawasi oleh ulama.

Pondok Pesantren se Jawa-Madura yang tergabung dalam Forum Komunikasi Pondok Pesantren Putri (FMP3) mengharamkan pemanfaatan situs jejaring sosial secara berlebihan, seperti mencari jodoh maupun pacaran.

Pernyataan ini sesuai dengan hasil pembahasan dalam Forum Bahtsul Masail di Pondok Pesantren Putri Hidayatul Mubtdien Lirboyo, Kelurahan Lirboyo, Kecamatan Mojoroto, Kota Kediri .

Tentunya wacana ini agak mengagetkan para Facebooker di tanah air .

Menurut hemat saya, kalau hanya mencari jodoh dan pacaran kenapa harus diharamkan selama itu masih dalam batasan2 yang Normal dan dengan Niat yang baik.

Mungkin beberapa fakta2 dibawah ini yang menyebabkan mengapa Facebook diharamkan:

1. Facebook bisa membuat kita mengabaikan anak.

2. Facebook membuat kita tidak ingin meninggalkan komputer kita.

3. Facebook membuat kita tidak memperhatikan keadaan sekeliling kita.

4. Keranjingan Facebook bisa membuat tubuh kita kurus, karena lupa makan.

5. Keranjingan Facebook juga bisa membuat kita menjadi gemuk, karena gak enak buka facebook tanpa ngemil.

6. Keranjingan Facebook tidak mengenal usia, sampe balitapun ikutan jadi Facebooker.

7. Apapun yang kita lakukan, membuka Facebook tidak ketinggalan (kewajiban yang lain jalan, Facebook juga jalan).

escaped prisoner caught after 27 years rambling

(AP) A man who escaped from a Virginia prison nearly 27 years ago was arrested Wednesday in northern Georgia, where he lived with his wife in a trailer park tucked in the woods of an Appalachian mountain valley.

Richard Paul Boucher told investigators his wife, Debbie, helped him and another inmate escape in 1982, and they abandoned their car in North Carolina and walked, sleeping in the woods, until they arrived in Murray County, Ga., said Capt. Rick Swiney of the Whitfield County Sheriff's Office.

The Bouchers stayed there and raised a daughter, now 25, who knew them only as Eric and Debbie Coleman, Swiney said.

Boucher, 56, was taken into custody on a fugitive warrant in Murray County, along the Tennessee line, said Gregory Jones, agent in charge of the FBI in Atlanta.

Jones said Boucher escaped from a prison in Chesapeake, Va., where he was serving a 10-year sentence for robbery.

He also was charged in Murray County with possession of a firearm by a felon because a rifle was found at his trailer home, where he lived with his 53-year-old wife. She was charged by local authorities with hindering apprehension of a criminal, Swiney said.

Authorities were questioning Boucher Wednesday afternoon, seeking a fuller account of his life on the run, Swiney said. He was held at the Whitfield County jail pending extradition proceedings.

"He kept to himself, pretty much," Swiney said. "He took odd, cash-paying jobs. He maybe would do some maintenance work around the trailer park, for cash."

Swiney said Boucher and his wife lived amid a small group of mobile homes on an isolated road near Eton, about five miles north of the Murray County seat of Chatsworth. The area is in a broad valley between mountain ridges of the Chattahoochee National Forest.

"He told our investigators that his wife picked him up after he escaped. They drove to North Carolina but didn't have any money, so they sold the car and started walking, staying in the woods, until they got to Chatsworth," Swiney said.

Whitfield County investigators recently received a tip that he was a wanted man, Swiney said. They determined that Eric Coleman was a false name and turned their information over to the FBI's Conasauga Safe Streets Task Force.

After the FBI traced his identity, surveillance was set up Wednesday morning, and after about an hour the Bouchers came outside the trailer and were arrested, Swiney said.

junk foods crackdown

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Junk food ads account for two-thirds of televised advertisements for food that are shown when children are likely to be watching, researchers into obesity said Friday, based on a study of 11 countries.

Germany and the United States led the way at 90 percent, with Britain and Australia the lowest at about 50 percent, the researchers said, urging governments to limit such marketing in order to combat obesity.

"Internationally, children are exposed to high volumes of unhealthy food and beverage advertising on television," Bridget Kelly, a nutrition researcher at the Cancer Council NSW in Australia, and colleagues told the European Congress on Obesity in Amsterdam.

"Limiting this food marketing is an important preventative strategy for childhood obesity."

About 177 million children and teenagers under 18 years old worldwide are clinically overweight or obese. The figures include 22 million overweight children under five years old, according to the International Obesity Task Force.

Obesity raises the risk of conditions like heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and the growing epidemic is piling pressure on many cash-strapped national health systems.

Unhealthy lifestyles including high-calorie diets, poor exercise and hours spent in front of the television or computer have contributed to the surge in childhood obesity.

"There is a lot of attention on unhealthy food marketing as an influence on childhood obesity and a lot of governments are reluctant to regulate," Kelly said in an interview. "So most countries in the study don't have regulations on food advertising."

The researchers, who looked at children in Australia, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe and North and South America, found that junk food ads mainly featuring fast food, confectionery and high-fat dairy foods increased during times young people were most likely to be watching.

"Children see around 4,000 to 6,000 food advertisements on television a year and between 2,000 and 4,000 are for unhealthy foods," Kelly said. "So even if you are in countries that are advertising less to children, that is still a lot."

While establishing a direct link between advertising and obesity is difficult, it is clear marketing plays a big role in the kinds of food children prefer, the researchers said.

toilet snake attack

TAIPEI (Reuters) - A Taiwanese man became a sitting target for a snake, which bit his penis as sat on the toilet at his rural home, local media reported on Monday.

"As soon as he sat down, he suddenly felt a knife-like pain and reacted instinctively by standing up," the China Times said. "When he looked down, he saw the big snake."

The 51-year-old man, from Nantou County, was under medical care with minor injuries, a director at Puli Christian Hospital said.

"As soon as he has passed the risk of infection, he can go," the director, who declined to be named, said. "A snake's mouth isn't always clean."

Local television images showed the black and yellow reptile, reportedly a species of rat snake, being uncoiled and plucked slowly from the toilet bowl.

Snakes regularly enter rural homes in Taiwan and other sub-tropical regions of Asia.

hitler beheaded in wax museum

BERLIN (Reuters) - A German court fined an unemployed man 900 euros ($1,227) Tuesday for knocking the head off a waxwork figure of Adolf Hitler in a Berlin museum.

Minutes after the Madame Tussauds museum opened in the German capital in July, the 42-year-old pushed past security staff ripped off its head. The man, an ex-policeman, said he found it inappropriate to display an exhibit showing the Nazi leader only some 500 meters from Berlin's Holocaust memorial.

The waxwork of a glum-looking Hitler in a mock bunker stirred debate in Germany even before it went on display. Critics argued it was tasteless to display a replica of the man who unleashed World War Two and ordered the extermination of Europe's Jews.

Madame Tussauds said the museum avoided politics, arguing Hitler stood for a significant part of German history and his waxwork therefore had a legitimate part in the exhibition.

The restored figure was returned to the museum in September and is now displayed behind a glass wall.

About 25 workers spent about four months on the original waxwork, using more than 2,000 pictures and pieces of archive material and also guided by a model of the "Fuehrer" in the London branch of Madame Tussauds.

The wax figure has been cited as the latest in a gradual breaking down of taboos about Hitler in Germany more than 60 years after the end of the war and the Holocaust in which some six million Jews were killed.

The 2004 film "Downfall" provoked controversy as it portrayed the leader in a human light during the last days of his life. In 2007, a satire about Hitler by Swiss-born Jewish director Dani Levy was released in Germany.

It is illegal in Germany to show Nazi symbols and art glorifying Hitler.
