Tanggal 30 Desember 2011 di Samoa Tidak Ada!

Position of Samoan is exactly near the
International Date Line.
(Jadi galau dah kalau tinggal di negara kayak gitu :D)
Samoa - Sebentar lagi masyarakat akan merayakan pergantian tahun menuju tahun 2012. Namun bagi masyarakat Samoa, sebuah negara kepulauan di Samudra Pasifik, tahun 2011 ini mereka akan kehilangan tanggal 30 Desember.


Di masyarakat Samoa, tanggal 30 Desember tidak tercantum dalam kalender mereka. Setelah tanggal 29 Desember, esok harinya akan menjadi 31 Desember 2011 karena wilayah Somoa dilalui oleh garis tanggal internasional. 


Wilayah Samoa saat ini berada di sebelah timur garis tanggal internasional dan akan berpindah ke sebelah barat dalam setiap satu abad.

Seven years back, December 26 2004 (7.58 am)

Do you still remember these videos? Don't let them go as the time passes. Let it be a lesson to human races, how to manage the situation during the disastrous condition, how to educate the people who live along the dangerous area, and how to make you more humanist...

Ibu, Tanpamu lalu Apa artinya Aku?

Happy Mothers Day!
Ibu. Satu kata yang begitu populer hari ini. Ya. Betul sekali. Hari ibu. Hari Ibu ini ternyata tidak diperingati secara internasional pada tanggal 22 Desember looh. Hari ibu di setiap negara bervariasi. Bahkan, menurut wikipedia, hanya Indonesia yang merayakan Hari Ibu pada tanggal 22 Desember (lihat Mother's Day). Hayooo tau nggak kenapa Indonesia memperingati Hari Ibu ini pada tanggal 22 Desember setiap tahunnya? Usut punya usut, sewaktu zaman penjajahan kolonial telah terjadi sesuatu yang luar biasa pada tanggal 22 Desember.


Kilas balik yuuuk ke tanggal 22 Desember 1938 saat Kongres Perempuan Indonesia (lihat artikel ini). Tanggal ini kemudian ditetapkan oleh presiden sekaligus Bapak Proklamator Bangsa Indonesia, Ir. Soekarno, melalui Dekrit Presiden Nomor 316 Tahun 1959 menetapkan bahwa tanggal 22 Desember diperingati sebagai Hari Ibu dan dirayakan secara nasional. Perayaan ini bukannya tanpa sebab. Pada masa kolonial sudah menjadi rahasia umum bahwa wanita kurang mendapat akses terhadap pendidikan, kesehatan, kesetaraan gender terhadap mitranya kaum Adam.

Duka di Negeri Paektu, Kebingungan di Seluruh Dunia.

Mount Paektu, North Korea
Sebuah negeri kini sedang berduka. Kim Jong Il, pemimpin revolusioner Korea Utara, meninggal dunia tanggal 17 Desember 2011 saat pulang dalam perjalanan di kereta api. Pemimpin yang sudah kiranya tujuh belas tahun berkuasa meninggal akibat serangan jantung. Duka pun serentak menghenyakkan seluruh negeri. Yaah, wajarlah apabila seorang pemimpin dari sebuah negara, apalagi yang masih dalam masa tugasnya, meninggal dunia pasti rakyatnya akan sangat berduka. Walaupun ada oposisi, tetaplah mereka berduka demi menghormati pemimpin yang telah mangkat.

Ketika Senja Tak Lagi Tersenyum (Bagian 1)

Sabtu, 7 Mei 2011 14.30 Rumah Alif, Serang Banten


'"Abiii...." Fajar meringsek ke pelukan ayahnya yang baru saja pulang dari sekolah. Ayah Fajar adalah seorang guru kimia di salah satu sekolah favorit di Serang, Banten.
"Hmm???" Alif, ayah Fajar, segera mengangkat anaknya yang masih berusia empat tahun itu. Walaupun badan terasa letih, Alif tetap memberikan senyuman terbaiknya kepada anak pertamanya.

"Abiii... ayoooo ke Krakatau...." rengek Fajar.
"Tumben mau jalan-jalan ke situ, sayang..." Alif membelai lembut dan mencium kening putranya. Tak lama kemudian sang isteri pun datang.
"Eh, Abi sudah pulang..." Nurul, isteri Alif, datang dan membantu Alif membawakan barang-barangnya. Sementara itu, Fajar terus saja bergelayut penuh manja dalam pelukan ayahnya.
"Manja sekali anak Abi ini..."

Crowded Earth: how many is too many?


Tianmen Square, China

Already straining to host seven billion souls, Earth is set to teem with billions more, and only a revolution in the use of resources can avert an environmental crunch, experts say.
As early as 1798, Thomas Malthus gloomily forecast that our ability to reproduce would quickly outstrip our ability to produce food, leading to mass starvation and a culling of the species.
But an industrial revolution and its impact on agriculture proved Malthus and later doomsayers wrong, even as our numbers doubled and redoubled with accelerating frequency.
"Despite alarmist predictions, historical increases in population have not been economically catastrophic," notes David Bloom, a professor in the Department of Global Health and Population at Harvard.
Today, though, it seems reasonable to ask if Malthus wasn't simply a couple of centuries ahead of the curve.
On October 31, the world's population is officially scheduled to hit seven billion -- a rise of two billion in less than a quarter century.
Over six decades, the global fertility rate has roughly halved, and amounts to a statistical 2.5 children per woman today.

Simoncelli Death and Fatal Earthquake in Turkey

Though I'm not the one who loves motoGP as a holics, I like to know the news about it well.. Then, when I was opening my hand phone yesterday (10 pm), I got this bad news belong to a fatal earthquake rattled south east Turkey... This is both news...




Simoncelli Death in Malaysian Moto GP


Italian motorcyclist Marco Simoncelli died in a horrific crash at yesterday's MotoGP race in Malaysia, in full view of his devastated family and girlfriend.
The 24-year-old was flung from his bike and skidded across the track, before apparently being hit by competitors Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.
His mother Rossella, father Paolo and girlfriend Kate watched in horror as Simoncelli's bike was smashed to pieces after his dramatic loss of control in the second lap. 
They wept in shock as the unconscious rider was taken to the medical centre at the track in Sepang for treatment, but his injuries to the chest, head and neck were too serious for him to be saved.
Simoncelli's fellow Honda rider Dani Pedrosa, who had fallen out with Simoncelli earlier in the season, said: 'I've been with his father and all we could do was to hug, nothing else matters.
'Everybody in the paddock remains in shock. Many times we ourselves forget how dangerous this sport can be and when you lose people on the way nothing has any meaning. It's clear that we all do what we like, what we love, but on days like today nothing matters.'
He added: 'In a tragedy like this there is not much to say. I just want to give my condolences to his family and all the people who love him.'

Sometimes We Underestimate a Small Thing


When MPKMB 47 was held, we had to make a inspiring story... and i made this.. ^.^In rule it had to be post on our webs, but i forgot... then after almost a year I've just posted already... hahahahas LOL

Sometimes We Underestimate a Small Thing

I had my friend since I entered International Class of my school. I won’t tell to you his name, let the readers guess who he is… He’s calm. He liked to play the guitar along day, sleeping in the class when it’s studying, had sleepy-weepy eyes, and was a leader of the class. I knew him lots enough, because he sat in front of me. He always played Dota, Counter Strike, and other games, even the class going on. At the first time, OK you may estimate him as the low-rank in the class. I had done it too. ^^

Jalan

Sunyi...
Langit menggantung dalam diam...
Bumi menghampar dalam diam...

Aku ingin menyapa angin...
Aku ingin menyapa air...
Aku ingin menyapa api...
Angin berbisik dalam tawa
Air mengalir tak menyapa
Api berkobar dalam asa...

Bintang gemintang
Bulan
Sang mentari hanya bergerak saja
Memberikan arah dan cahaya
Setiap kali kubertanya, tak ada yang menjawab...

Setahun di asrama TPB IPB bukanlah waktu yang singkat. Namun, karena beragam aktivitas kuliah dan kesibukan membuat waktu satu tahun itu menjadi sangat cepat.
Tak sadar, baru saja rasanya masuk IPB rempong-rempong bawa berkas registrasi di GWW... heboh nyari barang aksesoris kamar di pasar kaget Bara Sunday Mall (^^'), MPKMB... kuliah, praktikum, ngerjain laporan, belajar, maen games... :D dengerin mp3... berorganisasi... olahraga... dan seabrag-abreg segudang kegiatan lainnya, ternyata membuat para insan asrama TPB IPB lupa sudah satu tahun mereka menghuni di asrama ini...
Change your thoughts and you change your world (Norman Vincent Peale)
  Merubah pemikiran seorang siswa menjadi seorang mahasiswa, seorang yang mengabdi kepada masyarakat melalui aksi nyata, bukanlah suatu hal yang mudah dilakukan. Tidak pula mudah dilakukan dalam waktu yang relatif singkat. Just in one year to be done is impossible. Namun, apabila tekad menyala dalam dada dan segera merealisasikan cita tanpa membuang masa, maka everything is possible. ^^
