Original news by Antara 19/3/2003 Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) Chairperson Megawati Soekarnoputry is still unable to meet Democratic Party`s Advisory Board chairman Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) because of her tight election campaign schedule, a spokesman said. PDI-P Secretary General Pramono Anung told the press here on Wednesday that after April 5, 2009, Megawati would probably meet with Yudhoyono but it would depend on the right momentum related to their common political interest. According to Pramono Anung, the PDI-P chairperson has asserted that she was ready to meet with anybody because never did she break the bond of friendship with all parties. "Ibu Mega has yet to make an agenda of her meeting with SBY because in addition to her tight schedule, there is also the difference in her political view and principle," Pramono Anung said. He added that the difference in her political view with Yudhoyono was especially in relation wi

PKS, Yudhoyono make political contract on Palestinian independence

The Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) has made a political contract with Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) to free Palestine from colonialism, according to a PKS leader. "PKS has opened up for coalition with other political parties as well as with any presidential and vice presidential candidates, with a common vision priority to develop this nation," PKS Secretary General Anis Matta said here on Monday. The political contract with SBY did not only cover international affairs but also domestic issues such as anti corruption, he said. PKS was confident in the corruption eradication efforts as mandated by the reform, because so far no PKS cadre had been involved in a corruption case since the birth of the party, he said. "PKS cannot guarantee that in the future none of its cadres would be free from corruption. But, until today we can prove that there is no PKS cadre being charged with corruption," he said. The Islam-based party would intensify its political communication on


Pemilu –WHATSOEVER. Kenapa ya gw ga antusias??? Tidak seperti dulu jaman kuliah-even hanya pemira yang milih ketua jurusan atau ketua BEM-heboh, seru. Tapi sekarang...maleeezzz. Kelihatan ga penting aja (-haloooww in pesta demokrasi-so WHAT?) Well, secara partainya banyak banget, berapa?38?kertas nya segede taplak meja-boros bukan? Lagian bikin banyak partai tidak jelas gitu, sekedar setor nama. Atau barisan sakit hati karena didepak partai lama. Atau adegan pembuktian diri karena kemaren kalah? Maka sesumbarlah mereka dengan beragam janji yang mostly boong pake banget!!! Alih-alih mengabdi pada negara....yang ada hanya menghamburkan uang demi ego pribadi. Haloow ...tidak perlu bikin partai –tidak perlu nunggu jadi anggota dewan-tidak perlu nunggu jadi presiden untuk mengabdi pada negara, berpihak pada rakyat dan membuat perubahan. JUST DO IT NOW ! Mulai saja dari diri sendiri, dari lingkungan sekitar. Dari tingkat kampung even RT. Bagaimana memberdayakan pemuda untuk membangun d

The role of sugar and salt in a healthy diet Sugary Drinks and Sweets It is natural to like sweets. And it is okay to enjoy them as an occasional treat, but it is vital to keep consumption to a minimum. Refined sugar is one of the bad carbs mentioned above. Not only does it cause problems with our blood sugar level, but it also uses up stored resources within our body (such as minerals and enzymes) in order to process the sugar. In addition there are many negative health effects that sugar contributes to including: hypoglycemia, suppression of the immune system, arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, headaches, and depression. Choose sweet treats that are home made or have naturally occurring sugar, such as fruits. Try making your favorite dessert with half or one-third less sugar than usual. Make dessert a special event once a week. Many foods have naturally occurring sugars, such as fruits, vegetables, grains and beans. Incorporate naturally sweet foods into your diet to help crowd out u

Smart Eating

Healthy eating begins with learning how to “eat smart”. It's not just what you eat, but how you eat. Paying attention to what you eat and choosing foods that are both nourishing and enjoyable helps support an overall healthy diet. Take time to chew your food: Chew your food slowly, savoring every bite. We tend to rush though our meals, forgetting to actually taste the flavors and feel the textures of what is in our mouths. Reconnect with the joy of eating. Avoid stress while eating: When we are stressed, our digestion can be compromised, causing problems like colitis and heartburn. Avoid eating while working, driving, arguing, or watching TV (especially disturbing programs or the news). Try taking some deep breaths prior to beginning your meal, or light candles and play soothing music to create a relaxing atmosphere. Listen to your body: Ask yourself if you are really hungry. You may really be thirsty, so try drinking a glass of water first. During a meal, stop eating before you fe

Strategies for healthy eating

Eat enough calories but not too many. Maintain a balance between your calorie intake and calorie expenditure—that is, don't eat more food than your body uses. The average recommended daily allowance is 2,000 calories, but this depends on your age, sex, height, weight, and physical activity. Eat a wide variety of foods. Healthy eating is an opportunity to expand your range of choices by trying foods—especially vegetables, whole grains, or fruits—that you don't normally eat. Keep portions moderate, especially high-calorie foods. In recent years serving sizes have ballooned, particularly in restaurants. Choose a starter instead of an entrĂ©e, split a dish with a friend, and don’t order supersized anything. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes—foods high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, low in fat, and free of cholesterol. Try to get fresh, local produce Drink more water. Our bodies are about 75% water. It is a vital part of a healthy die

Move On

In 1989, Stephen R.Covey published time management consept with 7 HABITS. One of them is the difference among ‘important and urgent’ and ‘important and not urgent’. We have to aware about them. Covey remind us that we often concentrate in urgent things because of delay of time. We ignore those things before. We didnot do the best and make the right decision on that time Do something important is positive behaviour and it will direct us to do hurry in working but keep in best result “Sense of urgency” is different with “do urgency” In working area we often do ‘slow but sure’. We can say It’s already October or It’s still October. We pretend to live in a grey area as comfort zone and dont wanna confront in black and white area. ‘4-A’ Sense of urgency A salesman have surprised when asked a question what is next target selling , just a moment after he closed great selling.

healthy diet

Developing healthy eating habits isn't as confusing or as restrictive as many people imagine. The first principle of a healthy diet is simply to eat a wide variety of foods. This is important because different foods make different nutritional contributions. Secondly, fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes—foods high in complex carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins, and minerals, low in fat, and free of cholesterol—should make up the bulk of the calories you consume. The rest should come from low-fat dairy products, lean meat and poultry, and fish. You should also try to maintain a balance between calorie intake and calorie expenditure—that is, don't eat more food than your body can utilize. Otherwise, you will gain weight. The more active you are, therefore, the more you can eat and still maintain this balance. Following these three basic steps doesn't mean that you have to give up your favorite foods. As long as your overall diet is balanced and rich in nutrients and fiber, ther

HP netbooks for consumers

We did not have the chance to test-drive the HP Mini Note 2133, but by now you must have heard about it. It was launched around a year ago. If we follow Intel's arbitrary rule on what can or cannot be called a netbook, then the 2133 might not fit the netbook category. It did not run on an Intel Atom processor. Instead, it ran on the CM-7 processor from Via Technology. Although the processor was not as fast as Intel Atom, the 2133 received fairly positive reviews from the editors and users alike. One of the models that spearheaded the Internet-focused mini notebooks revolution, it had a metal chassis and, most importantly, a great keyboard. It was also a business-oriented mini notebook, and I will talk more about it later. HP filled the consumer segment with a new line of netbooks, called HP Mini. Early last January, HP Indonesia started the new year by inviting the press for the launching the new line in Jakarta. The HP Mini is a netbook because now it runs on an Intel Atom process

Spiritual tourism potential in Bali not fully tapped

Bali has been billed as one of the world’s top spiritual tourism destinations, but its potential has yet to be fully tapped, a seminar heard Saturday. Wayan Wijayasa, an industry observer from the Denpasar Tourism Academy, said the fact was, spiritual tourism was already blooming in Bali. “A simple example is the fact there are more and more hotels offering yoga classes. More and more tourists are coming to Bali to deepen their spirituality, although we do not have the detailed figures yet,” he said. Wijayasa, who has a master’s degree in tourism focusing on yoga, was speaking at the seminar being held at the Ashram Gandhi Puri Sevagram in Klungkung. The seminar was part of the ongoing International Bali-India Yoga Festival, which runs until Tuesday. He said the untapped potential to develop such tourism came mainly from Western countries, whose citizens were keen to learn Eastern philosophy, especially yoga. Citing from a study conducted by US researcher Hodge, he said there were 16.5
