What Happened To Flight #MH370? -
Hi guys. I’m Amirul Ruslan, a Kuala Lumpur based journalist with Malaysian business radio station BFM89.9 (website · Twitter · Facebook). I’ve been reporting on the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 for the last three days from the media centre at KL International Airport.
The situation has been an exceedingly stressful and frustrating time for authorities, journalists and the public alike, as we begin to slowly begin to comprehend that the search for MH370 is not one that will be completed in a short time.
In the mean time, I wanted to blog an FAQ of the situation as of 12pm, Monday 10th March 2014, some 58 hours since the plane was first reported missing. I hope this will offer some insight to you as to what goes on in the front line of the news gathering and reporting process here.
Since there’s a lot of speculation, I’d like to use this resource to debunk myths and provide informed analysis to what’s going on here. Feel free to ask me any questions you like.
I contacted Amirul on Twitter because he’s been pretty vocal about fact-checking too, and he decided to start this up. I’ll be co-contributing.

We need to rewrite the narrative of healing.
There is this idea that true healing is only accomplished through forgiveness and that’s bullshit.
You don’t need to forgive anyone that destroyed you or tried to destroy you in order to be able to move on or become “whole” again.
forgiveness is a gift that you choose to give.
It isn’t mandatory.
you Can heal by acknowledging what happened. By being kind to yourself, accepting that you can’t change the past while learning the warning signs for the future, by finding your voice, by living your life and more.
But telling someone that you forgive them for violating you, mistreating you, abusing you, and worse things go further into darkness we don’t need to list…
That isn’t the only path. So if you don’t take it, that doesn’t make you a weak, bad or incomplete person.

I WANT THIS SO MUCH
This week, Tunisia passed a truly historic constitution widely heralded as a progressive and monumental document.
Here’s just some of what these brave elected representatives agreed upon in the face of strong pressure from the more extreme factions of their parties:
- Guaranteed equality between men and women
- A constitutional mandate for environmental protection, only the third country in the world to do so
- A declaration that health care is a human right, with preventative care and treatment for every citizen
- A democracy with civil laws that respects freedom of religion
- An established right to due process and protection from tortureIn one stroke,Tunisia’s become more democratic than many Western countries have been for years.
This is a revolution of democracy and a great victory for human rights — and the more we recognize that, the more Tunisia can shine as an example for the Western and the Arab world!
Congratulate the Legislators!
MESSAGE FOR TUNISIAN LEGISLATORS: We , the citizens of the world, applaud your bravery in making a strong commitment to universal human values in your constitution. People deprived of democracy around the world look to you to set the example of human rights and democratic principle — hold true to the promises made in this revolutionary document!
Huge moment for Tunisia, which has persevered through terrorist attacks and assassinations. The hard work doesn’t end today, of course, but this is a great day nonetheless.
