Lovely Advice

I just found this..and I think this is very-very good advice for me now.

  1. Drink plenty of water.                                                                           
  2. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a beggar.
  3. Eat more foods that grow on trees and plants and eat less food that is manufactured in plants.
  4. Live with the 3 E’s - Energy, Enthusiasm and Empathy
  5. Play more games.
  6. Read more books than you did in 2010.
  7. Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day.
  8. Sleep for 7 hours.
  9. Take a 10-30 minutes walk daily. And while you walk, smile.

  1. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  2. Don’t have negative thoughts or things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  3. Don’t over do. Keep your limits.
  4. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  5. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip.
  6. Dream more while you are awake.
  7. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  8. Forget issues of the past. Don’t remind your partner with his/her mistakes of the past. That will ruin your present happiness.
  9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don’t hate others.
  10. Make peace with your past so it won’t spoil the present.
  11. No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  12. Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that appear and fade away like algebra class but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  13. Smile and laugh more.
  14. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

  1. Call your family often.
  2. Each day give something good to others.
  3. Forgive everyone for everything.
  4. Spend time with people over the age of 70 & under the age of 6.
  5. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
  6. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  7. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch.

  1. Do the right thing!
  2. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful, beautiful or joyful.
  3. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 
  4. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  5. The best is yet to come.
  6. Your Inner most is always happy. So, be happy.

Have a nice day ^^

Pandansimo Hybrid Power Plant

This article was posted on in 2011 . Do you know about hybrid power plant?

Hybrid Power Plant is  a power plant that use more than 1 type of generator (not stand alone).
The hybrid unit contains two or more complete generating plants. The hybrid power plant is a complete electrical power supply system that can be easily configured to meet a broad range of remote power needs. There are three basic elements to the system - the power source, the battery, and the power management center. The power sources are a wind turbine, diesel engine generator, or solar cell. The battery allows autonomous operation by compensating for the difference between power production and use. The power management center regulates power production from each of the sources, controls power use by classifying loads, and protects the battery from service extremes.

A hybrid energy system.

This is a media publication about hybrid power generation in Yogyakarta.
YOGYAKARTA - Ministry of Research and Technology and Universitas Gadjah Mada made Bantul regency as a pilot project in hybrid energy technology based on its potential of solar thermal and wind power. The area for new and renewable energy development is Pandansimo beach in Srandakan covering 37 Ha sandy area.

Ir. Santosa Yudo Warsono, MT, Deputy Assistant for Small and Medium Industries Technology to Minister of Research and Technology, said the first hybrid energy development in Indonesia has now entered its third year. Therefore, this year's program is more focused on the development of production techniques and component production capacity and improved capability of SMEs and economic empowerment of coastal communities.

Currently, the use of hybrid power plant is for coastal resorts lighting, operational training, workshop on renewable energy development and implementation model of regional innovation system. Although still being developed, hybrid power is tested for farming in sandy land that requires extra high water. "We use to elevate the water to the surface," Santosa said during a visit to the location n Srandakan on Friday (6/4).

Currently, some 35 wind turbine units of hybrid energy power stations have been installed with an average height of 18 meters, consisting of 26 wind turbines with a capacity of 1 kW, 2.5 kW, 10 kW, and 50 kW. As many as 175 units of solar cells are also added with capacity of 17.5 kWp.

Renewable energy researcher from Faculty of Engineering UGM, Dr. Ahmad Agus Setiawan, confirmed the hybrid power plant is very potential to be developed in Indonesia as an archipelagic nation. Therefore, it could be alternative energy for electricity supply. "Interconnection is not fully capable to provide electricity between islands, let alone our country has many small islands," the professor of physics engineering said.

Based on Agus’ research, wind speed in Indonesia is not as high in countries such as the Netherlands which has been using windmills energy. Wind speed at Pandasimo beach ranges between 3-5 meters per second. Therefore, it needs to be combined with a low speed generator and solar thermal energy. "The solution would be a lot of windmills," he added. According to Agus, the program is in line with the government's desire to support 1000 windmills program throughout Indonesia.

Head of Regional Development Planning Board of Bantul, Drs. Tri Saktiana, MS, expected the hybrid technology would easily be applied, maintained and used so as to improve the welfare of society. "The 13.5 Km-long beach of Bantul can be used optimally for the community. The community aspires for real goals, namely promoting business and agriculture through technology," he said.

Met separately, Dalijo (45), a farmer who owns land around the beach, claimed getting the benefits of the hybrid power plant. The plant can be utilized for watering the farmland and fish pond business. "Since there are windmills, we are able to cultivate farming on sandy land," he said.

Buat Gadis Rashid

Daun-daun hijau
Padang lapang dan terang
Anak-anak kecil tidak bersalah, baru bisa berlari-larian

Burung-burung merdu
Hujan segar dan menyebar
Bangsa muda menjadi, baru bisa bilang “aku”

Angin tajam kering, tanah semata gersang
Pasir bangkit mentanduskan, daerah dikosongi
Kita terapit, cintaku

— mengecil diri, kadang bisa mengisar setapak
Mari kita lepas, kita lepas jiwa mencari jadi merpati

Mengenali gurun, sonder ketemu, sonder mendarat

— the only possible non-stop flight
Tidak mendapat
