Bombing victims at JW Marriot and Ritz Carlton

This post is a continuation of previous post about the bomb explosion at Hotel JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton namely about the victims. From some newspapers that I read here, then the following is the update data of the victim names.

Injured victims = 55 people (18 foreign citizens), treated at four hospitals in Jakarta, namely RS Medistra, RS MMC (Metropolitan Medical Center), RS Pusat Pertamina, and RS Jakarta.

Victims died = 9 peoples, namely:
1. Timothy D. Mackay, New Zealand (President Director PT Holchim Indonesia).
2. Verity Nathan John, Australia.
3. Mcevoy Garth Rupert John, Australia.
4. Arnold, Singapore.
5. Darmanto, Indonesia.
6. Evert Mocodompis, Indonesia, employee of JW Marriott.
7. Senger Craig Andrew, Australia.
8 and 9. A Dutch couple identified as Peter Burer and EJC Keaning.

In this opportunity I want to say my condolence to all family of the victim. Really, I cannot say anything more except for this sentence: "Terrorist, whatever its reason, is more cruel than all devils. Even devil not kills human"

Update post on 26 July 2009: The names of the victims died above has been updated based on the data that I found at Communication and Informatics Department of the Republic of Indonesia website. Thanks to Seno and Colson by adding additional information in the comment of this post.

  20. At the time you posted, a few names of the casualties were still unknown. It is possible by now to add two other names to your list: Mr Peter Burer (62) and Mrs Eugenie Burer-Koning (50), from Badhoevedorp, The Netherlands. The couple was on holiday and about to leave on a domestic flight.

  22. As we all grieved enough over the tragedy, it is now time for recovery and eradication against terrorism.. as each individual in society has a shared-responsibility in keeping our home-front a safe living.

    Each of us is a police ourselves, a protector of our own home, let's us unite and start keeping our home free from terrorist and not acting like one.

    Peace greetings from us, Indonesian peacekeepers working from a far for peace.

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:













And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.

The inner voices when I am get old

One day in January 2010, I visited my grandfather (father of my mother) and my grandmother (grandmother of my wife). I could feel how happy they are with my presence, as well as myself. I can see despite their spirit remains alive but I can not deny that their physical abilities has decreased naturally. So I start to think how if I'm getting old like them. While thinking of it, suddenly my mind remembered a touching story that was discovered by my family, Yenny Ang. Whatever I had felt and imagined, I pour it into this post. Hopefully your love to the elderly and your parents will be more.

When I'm get old.

When I spilled vegetable's gravy on my clothes,
when I no longer remember how to tie a tie,
when I no longer remember how to tie shoelaces,
remember the time how I teach and guide you to do that.

While I am senile and constantly repeating the word that bores you,
please be patient to listen to me, do not interrupt me.
At the days of your childhood, with affection I kept …

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

VETO VS DEMOCRACY

In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

VETO
According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…
