3 Tragedies in Indonesia when september ends

Heavy rain fell in Indonesia when september ends. The sky looks gloomy and cry. Three successive tragedy happened in Indonesia when October comes. This sad incident reminds us of the tragedy that happened several decades ago. Love that ends in sorrow. Love is full of betrayal. Do you remember the incident g 30 S?

Now, the tragic incident happened again in late September. The violence claimed the lives of children of the nation took place near a place that should be filled with justice. Goddess of justice see some people who shed the blood of his brother.

One day later, someone who was broken-hearted wish to end his life and blew himself up to kill the police, the enforcer of justice. What's wrong with justice? Why justice in Indonesia filled with blood. Is this really tragedy? What is the goddess of justice has written sin? Has he been writing sins not tragedies?

"I Write Sins Not Tragedies" by Panic at the disco

Oh, well imagine, as I'm pacing the pews in a church corridor,
and I can't help but to hear, no I can't help but to hear an exchanging of words:
"What a beautiful wedding! What a beautiful wedding!" says a bridesmaid to a waiter.
"And yes, but what a shame, what a shame, the poor groom's bride is a whore."

I'd chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of...

Well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne
Oh! Well in fact, well I'll look at it this way, I mean technically our marriage is saved
Well this calls for a toast, so pour the champagne, pour the champagne

I'd chime in with a "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...

I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.
I'd chime in, "Haven't you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!"
No, it's much better to face these kinds of things with a sense of poise and rationality.

Again...




The tragedy had occurred again. Executive class train crashed into the business class train. Whether this is enough to illustrate that there is justice in Indonesia? Authority can freely hit the right belongs to the people. Is this country still divided by caste and power gap? It could be the goddess of justice was still served as a sleeping princess. Is this nation are learning to pretend? Perhaps the goddess of justice to sing the song "Wake me up when september ends" in her heavy dream.

"Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Green Day

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father's come to pass
seven years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

summer has come and passed
the innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

ring out the bells again
like we did when spring began
wake me up when September ends

here comes the rain again
falling from the stars
drenched in my pain again
becoming who we are

as my memory rests
but never forgets what I lost
wake me up when September ends

Summer has come and passed
The innocent can never last
wake me up when September ends

like my father's come to pass
twenty years has gone so fast
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends
wake me up when September ends

It turned out that Talk Like a Pirate Day was first created in 1995 by John Baur and Mark Summers. On this day everyone must speak in a style like a pirate. Why on this day people have to talk like a pirate?

On one day, Summers and Baur playing racquetball. One of them suffered injuries and shouting "Arrr!" Moans are similar to the pirate cry. Shouts typical pirate "Arrr!" or "yarrr!" was first heard in 1934 that is in the film Treasure Island. The word "rrr" is then always associated with pirates.

Essential Oil from Piper leaves can cure gastritis

Essential Oil from Piper leaves cure gastritis
Gastritis is a disease that quite disturbing. The disease is often treated with drugs containing antacids. In severe conditions, the Proton-pump inhibitor drugs used to treat these disorders. Gastritis is a disease caused by an inflammation of the stomach. Inflammation is often caused by Helicobacter pylori infection. Several psychological factors can also increase the excretion of gastric acid so that aggravate symptoms of gastritis. In South America, piper leaves is used as natural remedy to cure gastritis. Whether the essential oil from piper leaves can cure gastritis?

Some researchers from Spain, Italy and Brazil do research to prove the benefits of essential oil from piper leaves. They extract the leaves of piper to know how piper can treat gastric ulcers. Apparently, essential oil of piper leaves extract does have some activity that can inhibit gastric ulcer. Piper leaves extract may inhibit inflammation through inhibition of myeloperoxidase activity. Piper leaves extract can also inhibit gastric acid excretion through a proton-pump inhibition. Inhibitory activity of gastric acid excretion was similar to the workings of a proton-pump inhibitor drugs. In addition, the piper leaves extract was also able to overcome the main problems in gastritis, that is Helicobacter pilory infection. Piper leaves extract has the antibiotic effects that can kill Helicobacter pilory.

Piper leaf extract contains flavanoid, nervogenic acid, geranylbenzoat, phytosterols and phytol. Phyotosterols have a strong effect in inhibiting myeloperoxidase. The substance inhibits the release of myeloperoxidase from leukocytes. Flavanoid can also have inhibitory activity of myeloperoxidase but not as strong as phytosterols. Flavanoid in piper leaves extract is very helpful in treating gastritis because it can function as proton-pump inhibitor. Some substances contained in extracts of leaves of piper can also kill Helicobacter pilory through several mechanisms. This is very useful for overcome cases of antibiotic resistance.

High Dose Vitamin C 1000 mg Prevent and Treat Common Cold?

Vitamin C 1000 mg Prevent and Treat Common Cold?Season's erratic lately made a lot of people affected by common cold. My friends are also many who suffer from the flu. The disease which often caused by rhinovirus is indeed very disturbing activities. A lot of friends put up a facebook status associated with the disease symptoms such as fever, runny nose, etc. Some health products also take advantage of this opportunity. These products offer health supplements that contain vitamin C 1000 mg. No half-hearted, they dare to say that consumption of high doses of vitamin C can prevent and treat colds. In fact, some drinks containing 1000 mg of ascorbic acid suggesting that we take vitamin supplements three times daily. Do we really need vitamin C 1000 mg daily? Does high-dose vitamin C good for our health?

Treatment for common cold mainly to relieve symptoms. Nasal decongestan and paracetamol is very useful in relieving nasal congestion and fever. Sometimes, anti-flu drugs also contains anti histamine for allergic reactions which are also frequently accompanies with the common cold. Antibiotics should be avoided in the treatment of cold. Some studies mention that the use of antibiotics are not useful in handling the cold. Irrational use of antibiotics in the treatment of flu in fact increase bacterial resistance to antibiotics. Vitamin C is believed to be useful in the treatment of common cold. Vitamin C had been shown to boost immunity. The U.S. Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine recommends that we consume the vitamin C of about 75-90 mg / day. Smokers need additional vitamin C 35 mg / day higher. However, some commercial products so excited in the community suggest that taking vitamin C with doses much higher than recommended doses. In fact, they suggested that we should increase the intake of vitamin C to 3 x 1000 mg/day when we get the flu. Whether the increased intake of vitamin C at the time we feel flu-like symptoms would be useful?

Some researchers from the University of Wyoming interested in study this phenomenon. They were to study literature from several studies on vitamin C to determine the role of vitamin C in treating the common cold. Consumption of vitamin C 200 mg / day on a regular basis can reduce the duration of cold symptoms. However, regular consumption of vitamin C supplements did not prevent a cold. Regular consumption of vitamin C also does not reduce severity. What about the increased consumption of vitamin C at the time we get the cold? Apparently, this is also not useful. Increased intake of vitamin C at the time we begin to feel flu-like symptoms did not reduce the duration and severity of disease. Vitamin C is water-soluble vitamins. Thus, vitamin C with very high doses will not be absorbed because it will happen saturation levels of vitamin C in blood. Excessive vitamin C will only be removed through the urine and are thought to cause kidney stones. Some studies also mention that consumption of vitamin C more than 2000 mg/day can cause adverse effects on the gastrointestinal system and tooth erosion because this vitamin is a acid substance.

Then, how many doses of vitamin C, which should we eat regularly? Some studies mention that we should consume approximately vitamin C 200 mg/day. Consumption of vitamin C more than 500 mg / day is not recommended. To understand why we need vitamin C with this dose, we need to know the pharmacokinetics of vitamin C. Check out this blog continues ..

Champion League Final and Regional Leader Election 2010

Yesterday, three districts in Yogyakarta held local elections. In Bantul district, there are three potential candidates for regional heads. Although the regional campaign is not as busy as the national election campaign, the enthusiasm of residents to welcome the regional elections is quite high. This can be seen on the eve of election day atmosphere.

On Saturday night, residents gathered. In addition to preparing the ballot, residents also gather while waiting for the champion league final. Champion League 2010 was quite unexpected. The finalists are not team that has been predicted. For inter milan, this year was the first year in the final after years of failure in the previous round. Bayern Munich also had to work hard to reach the final, even they have lost playmaker mainstay after exposure to a suspension at the time of the semi-finals. Time went by quickly because people were chatting to wait for the game started.

The game began. I really hope Bayern Munich will be the winner on champion league 2010. German's club controls the match. However, the strategy made by Mourinho really effective in dampening the Munich attack. Although controlling the game, they were unable to penetrate the defense of Inter Milan. Catastrophe for Bayern Munich came in the 40th minute. Milito scored the first goal and Inter Milan lead 1-0. The score stood until the first half. In the second half, Van Gaal trained troops increasingly aggressive in attacking. They control 60% of the game. However, Mourinho's tactics are very bright. Again Inter Milan has counter-attacked very fast. Milito scored one goal again. Inter Milan were winning 2-0. Viewing 2-0 Inter already, I was pessimistic that Munich can catch up. Munich is famous as a team that often changed circumstances. They are often fail on first half and then turned superior. However, seeing the inter milan game, I thought Munich would be very difficult to produce a goal. Until the 93rd minute, a score of 2-0 did not change. I also went to sleep.

In the midst of sleep, I thought I heard the sound megaphone. The voice warned residents to immediately come to a vote. However, I feel very lazy to get up. I fell asleep again. When I awoke, my sister told me that candidates for the head area "Sukadarma" win in my area. Apparently, "my hero" lost again. I think "my hero" both in local elections and in the Champions League final in 2010 was not lucky.

Is she a victim of key logger?

This morning, a friend of mine says that her facebook account has hacked. Is she a victim of the key logger? A few days ago, she's birthday. Yet, somehow she can get this very special gift. She said that during the few days she could not open her facebook account. I do not know if she actually became victims of hack or even just a connection problem because some speedy users are also often complained about the difficulty of access to facebook because of the DNS problems. Sharply increasing popularity of facebook, facebook account become a great interest to hackers, including keylogger.

A few days ago I read an article about Facebook Hacking in a forum. How to steal a facebook account can be done in various ways. The most popular facebook hacking is social engineering. The majority of facebook users share information about themselves on Facebook profiles. Email account could also be easily viewed by others. This is a gap that can be used by hackers to steal our facebook account. Hackers can get our email passwords using the password reminder facility. With this facility, we can get our passwords simply by answering some security questions. Hackers may know the answers to security questions just by reading the information in facebook profile. Besides social engineering, password thieves often use the fake login page to get the person account. Hackers will lead the victim to open a fake login page. If the victim is not careful, he will not realize that he has submitted his username and password to the hacker via the fake login page. Both will require creative ways to deceive the victim. There are more sophisticated ways to get someone's account, using the key logger. We just need to insert this tool to get the victim's facebook account. Key logger is not only able to steal facebook account. This tool can also be used to monitor the online activities of someone who performed on that computer. We must be vigilant when using public computers because these computers could have been installed key logger. In addition, to safeguard the personal computer, we must install internet security software. However, this method is also not 100% safe because there are some spyware that can penetrate this security system.

Is my friend's facebook is the victim of account theft? In my opinion, there may be people who are interested in stealing my friend's facebook accounts because she was very beautiful. Maybe the hackers want to collect photographs of my friends owned it. Another possibility is that her boyfriend was the one who put key logger to monitor online activities undertaken by his girlfriend. As a person close to the victim, the boyfriend was able to freely enter a key logger to her girlfriend. He was able to track onlince chat activities conducted by his girlfriend.

Coffee increased risk of Cardiovascular Disease, still a controversy

Controversy Coffee increased risk of Cardiovascular DiseaseCoffee is widely consumed beverages in the world, especially in Indonesia. Coronary heart disease is now also one cause of death in the world. Two of these are often linked. Many people said coffee causes heart disease. This has become very interesting questions to be investigated. Some research on the relationship of coffee and heart disease was mostly done since several decades ago. However, until now, the effect of coffee on heart health is still a controversy.

Number of substances contained in coffee drinks has caused both beneficial effects and adverse effects on human health. Some adverse effects caused by the presence of diterpene and caffeine contained in coffee. Coffee contains two kinds of diterpene, they are cafestol and kahweol. In vitro studies showed that these two substances increased serum cholesterol. Normally, when cells need cholesterol, LDL receptor would be activated to bind to the LDL then brought cholesterol from outside the cell to enter the cell. However, diterpene inhibit the activity of LDL receptors so that the LDL accumulate in the circulation and cause an increase in serum cholesterol. Increased serum cholesterol can cause atherosclerosis, risk factor for coronary heart disease. Besides diterpenes, substances that cause adverse effects is caffeine. Although several studies have shown that caffeine has beneficial effects for health, Animal studies indicate that caffeine may damage and disrupt kidney function. Several epidemiology studies also show that caffeine could increase blood pressure. Caffeine increased levels of several stress hormones such as epinephrine, norepinephrine, and cortisol. The increase of stress hormones causes increased blood pressure.

On the other hand, coffee also contains many polyphenols which are antioxidants. Polyphenols which is widely available in coffee is chlorogenic acid (CGA). Several studies have shown that CGA has antioxidants activities that can prevent LDL oxidation, protects endothelial, reducing free radicals, and lower glucose levels. Possibly, the antioxidant activity offset adverse effects of some substances contained in coffee. This can be seen from several studies showing an increase in blood pressure due to cola consumption but no association between coffee consumption and blood pressure. Coffee and cola, both contain caffeine. However, cola does not contain polyphenols, while coffee contains many polyphenols.

Some research suggests that the effect of coffee on the heart varies greatly among individuals. It is caused by genetic factors. This resulted in differences in metabolism of the substances contained in coffee. Different effects could also be caused due to differences in ways of processing coffee. Different coffee processing causes differences in yields of substances contained in coffee.

Some meta-analysis showed that there was no relationship between coffee consumption and increased risk of coronary heart disease. Several cohort studies even show that coffee consumption can reduce the risk of heart disease in women. No studies that answer why the effect of coffee on the heart is also influenced by gender. Possibly, these different effects caused by different habits between men and women. Generally, a person who is very fond of drinking coffee also has a habit of smoking. Smoking habits are more often committed by men than by women. In fact, smoking is usually associated with several unhealthy lifestyles such as lack of exercise and physical activity. So, we must maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent heart disease.

Coffee prevent diabetes

Coffee prevent diabetes
Coffee is beverages that often accompany us at night. When we are sleepy, we often drink coffee to make us stay awake and keep warm. While we're relaxing with friends, we are not rarely drink coffee to warm the atmosphere. Now, drink beverages containing caffeine is very often associated with several diseases such as coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, neurological disease, kidney stones, diabetic, and several other diseases. Is that myth true? Some studies even prove the health benefits of coffee consumption. Coffee can reduce risk of diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease that is strongly influenced by lifestyle. Many factors affect that disease. Research in Netherlands showed that coffee consumption is inversely proportional to the risk of diabetes. The study was strengthened by studies conducted in Finland. Research involving more than 16,000 Finnish people are proving that people who drink coffee have a lower risk of diabetes than people who do not drink coffee. How coffee can prevent diabetes?

Coffee contains about 11 mg of magnesium per 100 g of dried coffee. These substances may increase insulin sensitivity so that the work of insulin in regulating blood glucose levels become more effective.

Apart from the content of Magnesium, coffee can also lower blood glucose because it contains chlorogenic acid. These substances can inhibit the activity of glucose-6-phosphatase. The enzyme is an enzyme that plays a role in breakdown glycogen into glucose. Inhibitions on this enzyme can inhibit the increase of blood glucose levels. Chlorogenic acid is an antioxidant polyphenol. Beside inhibition of glycogenolysis enzymes, antioxidants can also maintain blood glucose levels by inhibiting the absorption of glucose in intestines. But, unfortunately, roasting in processing coffee beans reduce the content of chlorogenic acid.

The content of caffeine is in coffee also play a role in preventing diabetes. Caffeine stimulates the insulin-producing cells in pancreas. This stimulation is very useful for people who are at risk of type 2 diabetes. Just like magnesium, caffeine may also increase insulin sensitivity.

To prevent diabetes, coffee consumption was also not helpful if not accompanied by a healthy lifestyle. As we know, diabetes is influenced by many factors especially the lifestyle. Sedentary life style is one of the risk of diabetes. Therefore, regular exercise will be very useful to prevent this disease. In addition, we also need to adjust our diet. If we consume too many carbohydrates and sugars, it can also be a risk for developing diabetes.

If diabetes can be prevented with coffee consumption, what about other diseases like heart disease and hypertension? Is that true that coffee increases the risk of heart disease and hypertension?

Business in sports for beginner

Sport is an activity that has many benefits. This activity is very beneficial for maintaining health, even certain sports can prevent cancer. Sports can also be a good educational tool. This activity can be used to teach children about honesty, courage, and a few other good qualities. So, do not be surprised if there was a slogan which reads "Sports build character of the nation." Today, sport is also a field to search for revenue. Some athletes have a high salary, almost equal to the salaries of conglomerates. Business in the sport expanded into a huge business. This business can produce profits very much. No wonder if some business tycoons began to pursue business in sport. Can a business beginner take advantage of business opportunities in sports?

Sports business development encourages rapid growth of various kinds of business, one of them is sports betting. Sports betting has a very high risk but could also give very high profits. Although we are still a beginner in the business, we can choose sports betting to start our business. To get huge profits, of course we must use the right strategy in sports betting. Appropriate strategy is needed to calculate whether our prediction is accurate. Accurate predictions could certainly make us win the bet so that we can make huge profits.

In addition to knowing the right strategies, we must also recognize some professional players. We can ask for advice about sports betting on them. Experience is very valuable to determine betting. The players who already have experience will have a pretty good instinct for predicting victory. If we try to participate in sports betting, there is no harm if we first asked for suggestions to players who've experienced.

I think sports betting is very suitable for seeking assets. If we have got quite a lot of profits, we should use the money as assets to open another business. Betting business is not suitable if we make it as a business to gain a steady income because of the risk and fluctuation is very high. We can also use the money from the bets for investment, for example, to buy gold because the precious metal investment is quite profitable in the long term. What do you think? Do you also want to try the sports betting business?

Plurking via Facebook

plurk facebook
In previous articles, we can update facebook status as if via plurk. Conversely, can we update plurk status while chatting with friends on facebook?

Previously, applications plurk to fb can only be used to write status of facebook so that under our status will be written "via plurk". However, we can not update plurk status through this application. I do not know how to connect plurk and facebook for status updates. However, I just added a few changes to this application. Now, you can access plurk through this application.

So, when we open this facebook application, we can update plurk and facebook status. Unfortunately, both of them are still not connected. Do you know how to connect them? Btw already long time since plurk updated new emoticon? If you found new plurk emoticon, please share it..

However, recently there was some changes. When we write plurk status, this status is changed to a post when we open facebook. Unlike twitter which automatically makes status update on facebook. Can we still write facebook status through plurk?

Earlier, I tried several unique facebook application. These applications help us to be able to update status and under such status would have made "via the name of the application."

Too bad we can not write facebook and plurk status simultaneously with this application. Do you find applications that help us to be able to write facebook and plurk status

Causative agents of Bartholin's abscess

Bartholin's abscess is the formation of pus in Bartholin's glands. This gland is is located beside the vaginal opening. Pus emerged rapidly in several days. Patients will feel a burning sensation and swelling in the vaginal area. Patients will also feel the pain when doing activities that put pressure on the vaginal area. In addition, walking and sitting can also cause pain that is very disturbing. The disease has not been widely studied. Several physicians from Gifu University, Japan, conducted a study to determine the causative agents of Bartholin's gland abscess.

The study involved about 200 Japanese women who suffer from Bartholin's gland abscess. The results of this research indicate that the formation of pus in the Bartholin's gland are mostly caused by opportunistic bacteria, E. coli. The organisms are normal flora in the intestines that often causes urinary tract infections. Opportunistic bacteria are also often cause various infections in the female genital area, such as inflammation of the Bartholin's glands.

Several years ago, E. coli is not the main cause abscess in the gland in the female genital area. The disease is often caused by N. gonorrhoeae infection . This bacterium is the main cause of sexually transmitted diseases. However, since the decreased incidence of gonorrhea infection, gonococcal bacteria is no longer a major cause of Bartholin's gland abscess.

How the symptoms of this disease? Bartholin's gland abscess patients will feel the pain and swelling in the vaginal opening. The pain often increases during sexual intercourse. Furthermore, patients also feel fever. If you feel these symptoms, immediately consult your doctor so that infection does not spread. Some cases show that this disease can spread and lead to septic shock.

My first experience in choosing web hosting

During two years of writing blogs, I still do not understand about web hosting. At that time, I just simply write a personal experience in a free blog from blogspot. One time, I met a jogja blogger in a gym. After chatting for a while, he introduced me to the business through blogs. He taught me how to earn money from blogging activities. One suggestion he gives is that we should have some blogs to optimize income from online business. I also made some blog on some free blog provider.

There are a few flaws if we use free blogs. If we are using blogspot, we need the business harder to compete with the blog using wordpress as CMS. In addition, our website address would be too long if we use these free blogs. My friend had advised me to learn wordpress and hosting with domain purchase.

Initially, I was confused in choosing a place to buy hosting. I also tried to find articles about how to choose web hosting. There are some web hosting from abroad that provides hosting with large capacity with a fairly cheap price. Apart from a fairly competitive price, the features provided is also quite comprehensive. We can arrange hosting with ease. In addition to some convenience, some hosting provider from abroad also very often give domain name coupons so that we can buy domains with very cheap price. However, I have not dared to buy hosting from web hosting providers from abroad because I am afraid will have difficulty when applying for customer service assistance.

I also asked my friends who already have a website. He told some of the best web hosting provider in Indonesia. To check whether a web hosting is SEO friendly enough, my friend told me to check the web which has the highest ranking in google with the keyword "best webhosting in Indonesia." The first rank is held by one of the web hosting provider based in yogyakarta. I was looking for information about these web hosting. It turned out that several large sites in Indonesia are also utilizing the services from this hosting provider. I also chose to buy hosting from this hosting provider which based in Sleman district, Yogyakarta. Besides having some pretty good services, this web hosting provider also near from my house.

Eggplant, delicious and healthy, rich in antioxidant

Eggplant, cucumber-shaped fruit is more often used as a vegetable. In the past, I really do not like vegetables that contain eggplant because this fruit becomes mushy when boiled with other vegetables. In addition, eggplant taste less delicious when used as a vegetable stew. On campus, there are small shops that sell fried eggplant. At first, I am less sure about this food. Then, I tried. How taste the fried eggplant?

It turns out, fried eggplant is very crispy. In addition to crisp, eggplant is also more delicious than fried potatoes because it feels more springy. It feels more delicious snack when eaten with ketchup or hot sauce. Crispy fried eggplant is also easy to make. Last night I cooked crispy fried eggplant at home to be enjoyed as a snack while playing games. You can search for crispy fried eggplant recipes in culinary sites.

Besides can be cooked into a tasty snack, the eggplant was also very beneficial for health. This fruit contains many polyphenols such as phenolic acids and flavonols. Polyphenols are antioxidants which have many health benefits. These substances can prevent bad effects caused by the bad cholesterol (LDL). As antioxidants, polyphenols can prevent hypercholesterolemia because these substances can prevent mutation of apo-B100. Apolipoprotein (apo) B-100 is a substance that helps the uptake of LDL. If exposed to apo B-100 mutation, the uptake of LDL from the blood will decrease resulting in hypercholesterolemia.

Some friends, who liked to do business, leisure is used to develop the business. Some friends also exist that use this holiday to visit tourist places in Indonesia like Bali. However, there are also friends who use this holiday to play games until satisfied. I included the group that likes to play games. Hehehe .. There are some games I currently play, such as DotA, The Sims 3 and harry potter.

Beginning of the holidays, I played The Sims 3. This game is hard enough to play on my laptop because my laptop is old generation laptop. This game has enough to spend my hard drive capacity.

Tea can cause anemia. Is that true?

tea can cause anemia
Tea is a daily drink that has many benefits. This beverage contains antioxidants that are beneficial for health. Some studies also have shown that tea can prevent some diseases such as osteoporosis. However, some articles also mentioned that tea can cause anemia. Is that true?

Apparently, tea was able to inhibit absorption of iron. Tea contains tannin. These substances can bind to non-heme iron to form iron-tannate complexes that can not be absorbed by our body. In the other form, heme iron can not be bound by tannin so that heme iron absorption is not affected by the presence of tannin substances.

Therefore, tea is not recommended to be drunk by people who are dependent on the source of iron from vegetables, milk, or iron supplements. Vegetables, milk, and iron supplements contain iron in the form of non-heme iron. Tea can cause anemia because it inhibit absorbtion of non heme iron. Infants and children who can not eat meat, should not drink tea after a meal. Iron needs of infants depends heavily on vegetables, milk and supplements. People who are undergoing treatment with iron supplements is also not advisable to drink tea after taking medicine. Drinking tea after meals is also must be avoided by vegetarians because source of iron from the vegetables will be difficult to be absorbed if it bound by tannin substances. What about us who ate meat? We do not need to worry for tea after a meal. Existing iron in meat is heme iron form so that iron absorption is not affected by tea drinking.

How to buy gold for investment

Gold investment is very profitable investment. Gold has become a business tool since the year 560 BC, during the reign of King Croesus in Turkey. Gold as an investment has many advantages. The gold price tends to increase. If we invest in currencies, currency values are highly irregular. The value of gold, which tends to increase can be seen in the chart of gold prices over the last 10 years. Besides having a value which tends to increase, gold investment also has several other advantages. Gold investments have no counterparty risk. Purchasing power for gold is also consistent. In addition, the gold price does not depend on government decisions and the banking system.

To start a gold investment, we must determine the form of gold which we will invest. There are three forms of gold that can be invested in the form of gold jewelry, gold coins and gold bars. Gold jewelry in the form of less recommended for investment. When buying jewelry, we must pay the price of gold and also the cost of making jewelry. However, when we sell jewelry, we will only get the gold price. Construction cost will not be counted when we sell the jewelry. Gold bullion and gold coin are appropriate form for investing in gold.

We can buy gold bullion and gold coins in gold shops, precious metal dealers, or in the office of pawnshops. However, if we buy there, the price we would get higher than if we buy directly on producers. If we want to buy precious metals, we should buy into the manufacturer directly. However, we must also take into account transport costs.

Speedy, Speed that you can trust?

Jargon tersebut sering kita dengar dan lihat di setiap promosi speedy. Namun, saya bukan akan promosi speedy, saya hanya akan berbagi pengalaman saya menggunakan layanan dari provider internet yang satu ini. Saya menggunakan layanan paket family dari speedy sejak oktober 2009. Saya cukup merogoh sekitar 150ribu tiap bulan untuk mendapatkan layanan koneksi internet unlimited dengan kecepatan 384 kbps untuk 3 GB pertama dan 128 kbps untuk selanjutnya. Loh, kok bisa cuma 150ribuan, kan paket family sekitar 200ribuan? Yap, saya mendapat informasi dari teman saya bahwa ada promo speedy community. Jika saya mendaftar speedy bersama 4 orang lainnya, kita bisa mendapatkan diskon (maaf saya lupa berapa persen) sehingga kita cukup membayar sekitar 150ribu tiap bulannya. Setelah tanya sana-sini, akhirnya saya meyakinkan diri untuk memilih layanan ini.

Layanan pendaftaran speedy memang sangat memuaskan. Kita tidak wajib mencari 4 orang teman untuk mendaftar paket ini. Petugas promosi dari speedy membantu kita mencari 4 orang. Bahkan, jika kita dapat mengajak teman, kita malah dapat komisi. Yap, tanpa prosedur yang berlibet, akhirnya speedy sudah terpasang di rumah. Lebih topnya lagi, saat itu ada promo bebas biaya instalasi sehingga kita hanya perlu membayar untuk membeli modem. Lebih beruntungnya lagi, kita dapat diskon untuk modem tersebut.

Boleh dibilang slogan speed that you can trust tersebut benar-benar dapat dipercaya. Speedy memberikan kepada kita layanan internet dengan kecepatan koneksi yang dapat dipercaya. Dibanding beberapa provider internet yang saya gunakan sebelumnya, kecepatan speedy saat saya tes di speedtest.net tidak jauh dari kecepatan yang dijanjikan. Saat 3GB pertama, biasanya saya mendapatkan kecepatan koneksi sekitar 0,32 hingga 0,35 Mbps. Jarang sekali (bahkan tidak pernah) saya mendapatkan kecepatan di bawah 0,3 Mbps. Saat quota melebihi 3GB, kecepatan juga tidak jauh dari 128 kbps,yaitu sekitar 0,12 Mbps, jarang sekali mendapatka kecepatan di bawah 0,1 Mbps. Untuk masalah kecepatan, speedy patut diacungi jempol.

Apakah layanan speedy sebaik dengan kecepatannya? Yap,pergantian tahun 2009 menjadi tahun 2010 menjadi titik di saat layanan speedy mulai rewel. Untuk masalah kecepatan, bisa dibilang tidak ada komplain. Namun, entah kenapa speedy seakan-akan mengikuti jejak salah satu penyedia layanan listrik di negeri ini. Sering sekali byar pet tanpa pemberitahuan. 1 Januari 2010, tiba-tiba speedy sama sekali tidak bisa konek. Dalam benak saya, saya masih berpikir positif mungkin jaringan sedang sangat sibuk di hari pergantian tahun seperti ini. Saya pun mencoba menelpon 147. Yap, kita akan dilayani dengan sangat ramah saat melaporkan adanya gangguan. Sehari kemudian, speedy sudah bisa digunakan untuk berselancar di dunia maya dengan kecepatan yang selalu dapat dipercaya. Sekitar seminggu hingga dua minggu kemudian, speedy tidak bisa konek lagi. Saya pun telpon 147 lagi. Hal itu berulang-ulang setiap satu hingga dua minggu sampai saat ini. Saya pun harus rutin menghubungi 147 tiap satu hingga dua minggu (Semoga saja petugas 147 tidak bosan mendengar suara saya). Yap, laptopku pun beristirahat sekitar 1-2 hari setiap satu hingga dua minggu.

Kejadian aneh muncul pada siang hari ini. Sore kemarin, earth days ala speedy kembali kumat. Adik saya pun telpon 147. Jawaban klasik pun muncul, "laporan akan kami proses paling lambar 3x24 jam. Jika lebih dari itu, Anda akan mendapat diskon 2%. Baik banget ya speedy itu, liburnya 3/30 hari (10%) tapi diskonnya cuma dapet 2%. Seminggu yang lalu saya hampir saja mendapatkan diskon tersebut namun baru sekitar 2,5 x 24 jam dari jam laporan (maaf tepatnya saya g ingat) speedy kembali bisa digunakan. Nah, siang tadi saya berharap saya bisa berselancar kembali untuk melihat hasil ujian komprehensif jilid 2. Namun, harapan saya hanyalah harapan yang belum menjadi kenyataan. Speedy belum bisa konek. Akhirnya, lagi-lagi saya menghubungi 147. Entah kenapa kali ini petugas 147 tidak menjawab seperti biasanya. Kali ini, saya diminta untuk menghubungi teknisi secara langsung. Well, saya diberi nomor telpon teknisi. Saya pun menelpon teknisi. Okay, saat itu sekitar pukul 11.30, teknisi menjanjikan akan segera datang dan memberi tahu bahwa akan dikenakan biaya sekitar 30ribu untuk setting modem. Saya merasa ada yang aneh karena saya mendapat gangguan tapi kok malah disuruh bayar. Saya pun menanyakan perihal biaya tersebut kepada teknisi tersebut beberapa kali untuk meyakinkan. Baiklah, saya pun menunggu bapak teknisi datang ke rumah saya. Detik demi detik hingga rasa mengantuk menyerang pun belum ada tanda-tanda teknisi akan datang. Hingga pukul 14.00, teknisi belum datang. Saya pun kembali menelpon 147. Selain menanyakan kapan teknisi akan datang, saya juga menanyakan biaya yang sedari tadi penuh tanda tanya. Ternyata, pelanggan tidak dikenai biaya untuk perbaikan gangguan, tidak ada biaya setting modem. Baiklah, saya pun meminta agar petugas telkom saja yang menghubungi teknisi agar segera datang dan masalah biaya tersebut tidak ikut menjadi polemik yang mendorong DPR untuk membentuk panja. hehehe... Mungkin biaya tersebut memang tidak seberapa, tapi jika ditumpuk-tumpuk maka tidak heran akan banyak lahir gayus kecil di negeri indonesia tercinta ini.

Baiklah, waktu sudah menunjukkan pukul 3:09, sudah satu jam saya menunggu teknisi menghubungi saya. Seperti yang sudah dijanjikan oleh petugas 147, jika dalam 1 jam teknisi tidak menghubungi, silakan hubungi kami kembali. Okay kawan, saya akan menghubungi 147 kembali.

Takoyaki Balls, Tasty Japanese Snack

I first found out Takoyaki in food exhibition at the university center, Gadjah Mada University. At that time, I was very surprised with the ball-shaped food from Japan's. Food counter selling Takoyaki ball was filled with octopus pictures. I thought the octopus meat balls are very fishy. I did not dare to taste the Takoyaki balls.

At one point, coming home from swimming in Depok sports center, I accidentally saw the food counter selling Takoyaki, Takoyakiku. The smell of tasty food from the counter made me even more hungry. I also stopped to try the Japanese food.

Takoyaki balls presented with some kind of topping on takoyakiku. There are original Takoyaki, Takoyaki ue keju, Takoyaki Sakana menari, and Takoyaki naka tepu. From the fourth menu, I just had to try three menus.

Takoyaki original must be tried when we were very hungry because we will get five balls. Three other menus contain only four Takoyaki balls. Although without toppings, original Takoyaki is already very tasty because it was covered with teriyaki sauce tastes very delicious, combination of sweet, salty, and savory, and the smell of typical Japanese food.

For seafood lovers, You must try Takoyaki Sakana Menari. The smell of tuna fish are felt. This menu is called Sakana Menari because we can see the dried tuna fish dancing on Takoyaki balls. Dried tuna is also known as katsuobushi. However, if you do not really like seafood, better choose another menu because the smell of tuna in Takoyaki Sakana dancing quite sharp.

Well, the menu that's worth a try by all people is Takoyaki ue keju. Cheese topping on Takoyaki ball are so fits. Taste the cheese was very tasty. It turned out the delicious taste of cheese because the cheese is cheese kraft use. If you Takoyaki freaks, you must try this menu. Typical Japanese food but the flavor is perfect for us. Oya, although tako means octopus, but the Jogja Takoyaki mostly still using squid meat. : D

I followed the cheese kraft photo contest. Please support me, my friends! Give comments and votes on this photo:

Tamarind beneficial for health, is a myth?

tamarind reduce blood cholesterolTamarind beneficial for health, is a myth? Last night, I ate tamarind candy that does not sleepy in the journey. Candy is indeed eliminate the sleep during the trip. Content of glucose can overcome drowsiness due to one reason for drowsiness is lack of glucose supply in the brain. Is tamarind helpful? This question arose when I woke up this morning. Then, I opened medical journal about tamarind health benefits.

Research carried out several researchers from Bangladesh proved that tamarind is beneficial for our health. Researchers examined the effect of tamarind on blood pressure, weight, and lipid profiles in 30 adults who become subjects in the study. 15 of whom were given a dose of tamarind extract 15 mg / kg body weight for 4 weeks. Body weigth, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, trygliseride measured before and after the experiment performed.

Apparently, tamarind taken for 4 weeks is really useful. Although no decrease in body weight and systolic blood pressure, subjects who consumed tamarind decreased diastolic blood pressure, total cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol. This is very beneficial because LDL cholesterol is bad cholesterol that can clog arteries and cause coronary heart disease. Thus, consumption of tamarind on a regular basis can prevent the increase in bad cholesterol, prevent disease hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerosis disease. This natural medicine can not effect rapidly like synthetic drugs. Natural medicines such as tamarind is useful in the long run.

In this study, tamarind can not lose weight, but our ancestors drank turmeric tamarind to lose weight. Is this a myth?

6 reasons why I like plurk more than twitter and facebook

plurk more attractiveWe have a lot of social networking sites that we can follow. These sites offer many facilities. Each site has unique characteristics. Among the many social networking sites, I'm quite active through facebook, plurk and twitter. However, if I update my status, I more frequently update through plurk. Status will also appear on facebook and twitter. There are several reasons why I prefer plurk.

1. Plurk does not need high class computer and fast connectivity
My computer is a computer belonging to ancient times that have only a very limited memory. If i open heavy program, my computer often does not respond. I often experienced this when opening facebook. However, if I open a plurk or twitter, I rarely deal with the problem..

2. Plurk provides unique emoticons
From the first, I was obsessed to have complete plurk emoticons. Although facebook also provides some hidden smileys, this facility is only available for chat. Facebook smiley facilities can not be used for status or comments

4. Plurk more easily to monitor the status from time to time
I still have a hard time going to see the status twitter a few days ago. These problems will not be found in plurk because I simply move the timeline to monitor the status from time to time.

5. Plurk layout more diverse
Among these three networking site, facebook is the only site that does not provide facilities to change the layout. Although there are several ways to change the look of facebook, but the layout can not be seen by others. Twitter provides a facility to change the layout. However, more varied plurk layout. Moreover, now many sites that provide free plurk layout

6. Plurk has a karma system
Karma is one of the factors that encourage us to always update the status of plurk. This system can not be found on twitter or facebook. The higher the karma we are, more fun emoticons that we can use.

Yup, some of the above are all factors that made me more like plurk. How about you?

How to get plurk emoticons for 100 karma?

plurk emoticons for 100 karmaI was very surprised when my friend can use Taser plurk emoticons. I think a few days ago he still had the karma around 95. How he could use emoticons that can only be used if he already have 100 karma?

There is an oddity when I watched that emoticon. Every time he put emoticons for 100 karma, there's always a username with URL link before emoticons. It turned out it was true. If we type the username's URL then plurk emoticon code, the emoticon for 100 karma will appear. For example, http://www.plurk.com/arbow (Taser). Plurk status, will appear as below:

taser plurk emoticon

When I try again, it did not have to use the URL plurk username. We can use any URL to bring out the unique emoticons.
For example,

http://facebook.com (fish_hit) It will appear as below:

fish hit plurk emoticon

Besides (Taser), you also can use other codes such as:


extra emoticon plurk karma 100 03(Coffee)

extra emoticon plurk karma 100 04(fish_hit)

extra emoticon plurk karma 100 05(muscle)

BTW, I do not know the code to create an emoticons banana carrying a sword.
extra emoticon plurk karma 100 01
Did you know?
