Anniesa Hasibuan & fashion

Anniesa Hasibuan never thought she would become a Muslim wear fashion designer.

Until a year ago, fashion was just a hobby for Muslim fashion designer Anniesa Hasibuan — something she kept to herself and her family.

Born in Jakarta, the 29-year-old mother of one is an entrepreneur on a team with her husband, Andika Surachman, with whom she runs a travel agency that specializes in umrah (minor haj) trips. She is a graceful and serious lady who talks flowingly.

“I loved drawing when I was small, but I only started designing my own clothes when I jumped into the business world. I often accompany my husband in meetings and to meet clients, so I have to dress up properly, because as businesspeople, we have to take care of our appearance,” she said.

As much as she loved wearing her favorite Indonesian designer clothes, Anniesa said she could not resist the desire to design her own Islamic outfits that speak of her personality and taste.

Her outfits, made by her loyal dressmakers, soon attracted the attention of clients and some friends, who wanted to order the same designs.

Anniesa believes in fate, and her fate led her to meet Usya Soeharjono from the Women’s Growth and Success Foundation in London, who invited her to showcase her Muslim wear collection in the Kaftan Festival during the London Fashion

Jurassic World Visual Effects Reel Takes You Behind the Magic

Take a look at a cool Jurassic World visual effects reel.

ILM takes us behind the magic with a new Jurassic World visual effects reel

Another surprising snub from this year’s Academy Award nominations was the absence of any technical nods for director Colin Trevorrow‘s visual effects blockbuster Jurassic World. Today, Industrial Light Magic (which was, itself, nominated for work this year on both The Revenant and Star Wars: The Force Awakens) has released a “Behind the Magic” Jurassic World visual effects reel that highlights exactly what went into bringing the franchise sequel to life. Check out the video in the player below!

Jurassic World went on to gross more than $1.67 billion at the worldwide box office with a cast that includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jake Johnson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Irrfan Khan and Judy Greer.

Jurassic World sequel is in the works with stars Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard expected to reprise their roles as Owen and Claire. Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly will once again pen the script for the Jurassic World sequel, though Trevorrow will not return to direct, opting to journey to a galaxy far, far away with Star Wars: Episode IX. He previously revealed the quote from the original Jurassic Park that inspired their idea

INSIGHT-Did Brazil, global health agencies fumble Zika response?


Rio de Janeiro Last January, long lines formed outside health clinics in Recife, a city in Brazil’s northeast hit hard in recent years by outbreaks of dengue, a painful tropical disease.

Doctors were on guard because federal health officials and the World Health Organization (WHO) had warned 2015 would be a bad year for dengue and possibly another viral disease, chikungunya, both spread by the same type of mosquito.

But the symptoms of the hundreds of people seeking treatment did not fit dengue. Instead of high fevers and intense muscular aches that dengue is known to cause, patients were running only slight temperatures and complaining of joint pain. Many had rashes sooner than with dengue and chikungunya.

“We knew this was something else,” says Carlos Brito, a doctor from Recife who told state and federal health authorities in January-February last year that they were wrong to classify all the cases as dengue. “But the authorities were slow to believe,” he said.

Kleber Luz, a physician in Natal, a city 300 km up the Atlantic coast, says he gave similar feedback but got the same response. The two – who were part of a group of doctors discussing the odd symptoms in text messages – grew frustrated with

Malaysia prosecutor, fund will help in Swiss graft probe

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — Malaysia’s top prosecutor said Saturday he will cooperate with Swiss authorities, whose investigation into an indebted Malaysian state investment fund indicated that $4 billion may have been misappropriated from Malaysian state-owned companies.

Switzerland’s top prosecutor said he sought Malaysia’s help after the investigation into 1MDB confirmed that some money was transferred into accounts held in Switzerland. The accounts were held by various former Malaysian public officials and both former and current public officials from the United Arab Emirates.

The Swiss office said in a statement Friday that criminal proceedings were opened last August against two former 1MDB officials and individuals unknown on suspicion of bribery of foreign public officials, misconduct in public office, money laundering and criminal mismanagement.

The $4 billion would have been earmarked for investment in economic and social development projects in Malaysia.

Prime Minister Najib Razak, who formed 1MDB in 2009, became embroiled in the scandal after documents leaked last year suggested some $700 million deposited into his accounts may have come from entities linked to 1MDB. Malaysia’s Attorney General Mohamed Apandi Ali on Tuesday cleared Najib of any wrongdoing, saying it was a private donation from the Saudi royal family.

Apandi said in a statement Saturday that Malaysian investigations into alleged graft by 1MDB are still ongoing.

“My office intends to take all possible steps to follow

Westbrook’s triple-double leads Thunder past Rockets 116-108 (Jan 30, 2016)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Russell Westbrook once again did a little bit of everything for the Thunder.

He finished Friday night with 26 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds, his sixth triple-double of the season, the third in his past nine games and the 25th of the Oklahoma City point guard’s career.

It also was the seventh time in nine games Westbrook has had 10 or more assists as the Thunder took advantage of center Dwight Howard’s ejection and beat the Houston Rockets 116-108.

”It’s part of my job, man,” Westbrook said. ”Just trying to find guys, getting the ball where they can score, keep the pace up.”

Howard was ejected in the third quarter after picking up his second technical foul. Kanter scored 20 of his 22 points after that to help the Thunder gain control.

”Obviously, when you lose a guy of that caliber, they’ve got a guy they can counter with with Kanter, who’s a really good low-post scorer,” Houston interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff said. ”With Dwight in there, we can shut that down. He can guard guys one-on-one in the post. Kanter was able to get it going a little bit after Dwight went out.”

Kevin Durant had 33 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder, who have won 10 of 11 and six straight at

Clippers send Lakers to 9th straight loss with 105-93 win

LOS ANGELES — The Clippers are facing another month without Blake Griffin dominating inside. His absence has created nightly auditions for whoever wants to step up.

Against the Lakers, it was Lance Stephenson, whose 16 points helped the Clippers’ reserves dominate in a 105-93 victory Friday night for their franchise-record ninth straight win over their Staples Center co-tenant.

“This stretch is going to give guys a lot of confidence,” said Chris Paul, who had a game-high 27 points. “We can win games, but we need (32) to win this championship.”

Griffin is nursing a broken right shooting hand after punching a team staff member on the road last weekend. He had already been out since Dec. 26 with another injury. The team is 14-3 without him since he first went down.

Austin Rivers added 17 points and Jamal Crawford had 16 points off the Clippers’ bench.

The Lakers dropped their ninth in a row and 13th in 14 games. They are one loss away from equaling the team’s worst skid since moving to Los Angeles, having lost 10 straight at the end of the

Angelique Kerber stuns Serena Williams in Australian Open final

MELBOURNE, Australia – Germany’s Angelique Kerber delivered a shocking knockout punch to defending champion and world No. 1 Serena Williams, the 28-year-old lefthander winning her first major title 6-4, 3-6, 6-4 in the Australian Open final.

It was a performance for the ages from Kerber, ranked No. 6 in the world.

Williams, winner of three majors last year and eight of the last 14, lost Saturday on the cusp of tying Steffi Graf’s Open era count of 22 Grand Slams for the second straight major. At the U.S. Open, the American was stopped in the semifinals by world No. 43 Roberta Vinci.

“You did so well, let me be the first to congratulate you,” a teary-eyed Williams said on court. “You truly played so well in the moment.”

Kerber also fought off tears as she addressed the crowd, but ones of joy.

“I was with one leg in the plane for Germany,” she said of nearly going out in the first round. “I take my chance to be here in the final and play against Serena. My dream come true tonight, on this night.
