Coca-Cola’s tightly guarded 125-year-old recipe was revealed last week by This American Life, a public radio show based in New York city.
“We think we may have found the original recipe for Coca Cola…and I am not kidding!” host Ira Glass says with excitment. He continues “I am not kidding. One of the most famously guarded trade secrets on the planet– I have it right here and I am going to read it to you. I am going to read it to the world.”
To find the recipe, Ira Glass turned to Charles Salter, a columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Mr Salter originally discovered the Coke ingredients deep deep within the archives of the journal in 1979. Edition 18 of the Atlanta based journal contained a photo depicting a hand-written copy of John Pemberton’s original recipe in a leather-bound recipe book.
John Pemberton, an American pharmacist from Atlanta invented the Coca-Cola recipe in 1886 and has since stayed with family members and close friends. According to the This American Life, only two people know the recipe and they never travel on the same airliner. The radio also claims the recipe is “locked in a vault in Atlanta.”
Here are the recipe ingredients and we know it will definitely shock a lot of Muslims. For a long time, a large number of Muslims considered Coca Cola “Haram”; an Arabic word meaning forbidden. They claim if you hold a mirror next to the famous Coca-Cola trademark, it will reveals “La Mohammad. La Makkah” in Arabic, which litterally means “No Mohammad. No Mecca.” This is considered anti-Islamic and a slander.
The Coca Cola company responded throught their website: “This claim is not true. The Coca-Cola trademark was created in 1886 in Atlanta, Georgia, at a time and place where there was little knowledge of Arabic.
“The allegation has been brought before a number of senior Muslim clerics in the Middle East who researched it in detail and refuted the rumor outright.
“During the late 1990s, a special committee of authorities in Saudi Arabia, with representatives from the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Trade, was formed to review the rumors against the Coca-Cola logo. The committee determined that there is no basis to these false allegations and that the Coca-Cola trademark does not connote anything defamatory to Islam.
“More recently, in May 2000, the Grand Mufti of Al-Azhar (the Islamic world’s foremost institute) Sheikh Nasr Farid Wassel, said that “the trademark does not injure Islam or Muslims directly or indirectly.” Moreover, he stated that Islam is against ‘the propagation of empty rumors and intended lies that affect either public or private interests.’”
The ingridient includes alcohol and coca (plant that contains the cocaine), which are forbidden by Islamic law. Let’s see how they (Coca Cola Company) explain this one this time. According to Globes, a Muslim-Israeli has already filed a US$330 million class action suit against The Central Bottling Company Group Ltd. – Coca Cola’s Israel franchisee (see Israeli sues Coca Cola for containing alcohol).
2011 was the most memorable year for the 12 of us as the members of the Students Representative Council for 2010-2011 sessions. As the president of the Student Representative Council , UBD Students’ Association or (PMUBD), we have successfully made several improvements to ensure that the welfare and the interest of the UBD students are will kept and protected. We cannot do all this things without the support of all the students of UBD.
The 4th Annual General meeting was one of the evidence that UBD student show there full support to the Council. PMUBD Shoppe renovation that had been approved during the meeting, Insya Allah will be finished by the end of February 2012. Other promises that had been made during the meeting will surely be kept and be continued by the new MPP 2011-2012.
PMUBD now are well recognized by other universities Students Council inside and outside the country. We used the opportunities given to us as the leading role in the association to promote PMUBD and its clubs activities to other institution. We have been and will always support all the clubs under PMUBD and surely we will support the newly elected MPP 2011-2012 to lead the Association toward its goal as the leading Students Association in Brunei.
PMUBD is an Association ‘Run By Students, For UBD Students’ that had reached the age of 25 years old since its establishment in 1986. And now it time for us the smallest group of MPP step down to give way to the new council. It has been a very wonderful year for us as an MPP, working with students and other societies, and in the end it fill so good to see that our PMUBD have grown into a bigger and better Association.
And I would like to take this opportunity on behave of all the students Representative Council member 2010-2011, to say Thank you to all students of UBD for your support !!! YOU ALL ARE THE BEST , and we would also like to apologise on any wrong doing that had been done directly or indirectly during our term.

Because, Jerry was a natural motivator.
If an employee was having a bad day, Jerry was always there, telling him how to look on the positive side of the situation. Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Jerry and asked him
“I don’t get it! No one can be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?”
Jerry replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, I have two choices today. I can choose to be in a good mood or I can choose to be in a bad mood. I always choose to be in a good mood. Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be victim or I can choose to learn from it. I always choose to learn from it.
Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or I can point out the positive side of life. I always choose the positive side of life.”
“But it’s not always that easy” I protested.
“Yes it is,” Jerry said.
“Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk every situation is a choice.
You choose how you react to situations.
You choose how people will affect your mood.
You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood.
It’s your choice how you live your life.”
Several years later, I heard that Jerry accidentally did something you are never supposed to do in the restaurant business. He left the back door of his restaurant open. And then in the morning, he was robbed by three armed men. While Jerry trying to open the safe box, his hand, shaking from nervousness, slipped off the combination. The robbers panicked and shot him.
Luckily, Jerry was found quickly and rushed to the hospital.
After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Jerry was released from the hospital with fragments of the bullets still in his body.
I saw Jerry about six months after the accident.
When I asked him how he was, he replied, “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Want to see my scars?”
I declined to see his wounds, but did ask him what had gone through his mind as the robbery took place.
“The first thing that went through my mind was that I should have locked the back door,” Jerry replied.
“Then, after they shot me, as I lay on the floor, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or could choose to die. I chose to live.”
Jerry continued, “The paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the Emergency Room and I saw the expression on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read “He’s a dead man.” I knew I needed to take action.”
“What did you do?” I asked.
“Well, there was a big nurse shouting questions at me,” said Jerry. “She asked if I was allergic to anything.”
‘Yes,’ to bullets, I replied.
Over their laughter, I told them:
“I am choosing to live. Please operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.”
“Jerry lived thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.
I learned from him that every day you have the choice to either enjoy your life or to hate it.
We always have two choices in life…and it is all up to us which one to choose to live by.
Another thought to think about on this story:
Have you made the right decision on where to spend eternity – heaven or hell?
You can choose to believe on Jesus Christ, accept Him as our personal Lord and Savior and you will have eternal life in heaven;
Or Ignore Him, choose your own worldly ways and end up to destruction in hell.
Which would you prefer?
It is your choice…
