Money For Nothing But For Financial Crisis

What is money? Many joke about money. For me, an ordinary man, says "Money is my payment's tools to get some goods and services". Conversely for those who receive my money. So simple and beautiful. Probably you said that is conservative models, but I say this is THE REAL TRADING.

I have a very rich friend and I know he like to observe the figures in the stock exchange through the computer, because he also the stock exchange player. By chance we met in a restaurant and he ask me for gather together. Most of our discussions are about the global financial crisis, because that was the hottest issue. From the fall of the share price and index figures in several world stock exchanges to the reaction of several countries for rescue it. From all of our discussions, there was an interesting part which I want to share in this article (translated in English):
Me : "Still playing the share in stock exchange?"
He : "Scarce at lately because the situation was uncertain…

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!

The Essence Of Blogging

Previously... when I browsing on the internet, I often faced with the passive site, which it only gave one-way communication. Read and finish, afterwards gone to other site (also read and finished). The only things that could be done was, click "Contact Us" and sent a message to the author.

Later... emerged the messenger's technology, like mIRC, Yahoo Messenger, Windows Messenger, etc. (referred to "chatting"). Indeed this was the two-way communication, but still not enough to keep tons of our thought and idea permanently.

Now... by using the service from Blogspot, Wordpress, TypePad, LiveJournal, etc. it create a cyberspace with more live and enjoy. Anyone could share the thoughts, idea, story, and interact with each other in manner of two-ways. Moreover there are those who wrote "Welcome to my home" in a blog. I feel like visiting my neighbor although they were very far from me. I thought cyberspace has been get up from the the silence night with th…

The problem of poverty has become global issue and often was used as main material in various debates and discussions. Thousands of programs have been created to oppose poverty, from the levels of individual, government and internationally. Will poverty end? Today, October 15, 2008, millions blogger around the world, including this blog, creates post about poverty and hope will rise an awareness towards that issue.

There are many definitions about poverty, but I gazed at poverty from three points of view :
1) Absolute Poverty. If someone unable to fill up the main needs for food, clothes, residence, health, education.
2) Relative Poverty. Someone that has been at position above from absolute poverty but below the capability of the community around.
3) Cultural Poverty. This tightly related to the attitude of someone or community who did not want to try (lazy) to improve the standard of living although having efforts from others that wanted to help.

Below is my view to fight poverty :
