Adam Scissor Hands

Adam Saaks (left) has spent twenty-seven years, making his mark in the fashion industry as one of the most unique talents the world has ever seen. 

He is famous for his live T-shirt cutting performances. Armed with only a pair of scissors, Adam has crisscrossed the globe wielding his razor sharp blades, spontaneously creating jaw-dropping designs in front of millions worldwide. 

Known as “Adam Scissor Hands”, he’s worked with the biggest names in Hollywood. And he has a cult following consisting of over 200,000,000 viewers on YouTube and over 150,000 followers on Instagram

In this video, Saaks shows his work – his skillful design of a cat suit on Brazilian model Pietra Zigmundo in the heart of London, UK:

 

The vice-chancellor of Universiti Teknologi Mara showed courage when he came out today to emphatically support the protesting Universiti Malaya students who were assaulted by UMNO goons. [Kindly read my post published Sunday, March 24, 2019 titled “UMNO Goons Attack UM Students”]. 

Prof Dr Mohd Azraai Kassim (right) said his university wholly rejected attempts to silence students’ freedom of expression, particularly through the use of physical violence. 

He had declared: “Violence is not only beyond social norms and democracy, but it is also against the values of the Malay-Muslim community that is rich in civility and manners, not to mention violating the country’s laws". 

Azraai said in a statement: “For UiTM, violence is never the way to resolve differences of opinions or ideology, and has no place on any of our campuses”. 

I agree. Students and academics’ freedom to broach current issues is a key aspect of the learning process and must not only be allowed but also encouraged.

And Azraai had urged the authorities to fully investigate and take appropriate action against those involved in the attack on the students. 

In the meantime, the UM vice-chancellor hid in his office and stayed quiet – the poor man didn’t have the scrotal gumption to condemn the hoodlums.
