Social Media Phenomenon: What Could Be Easier Than Speak Up Our Mind? "Tweet up our mind" could be. I have attended two schools in two different Asian countries. One is in an emerging country (which happens to be my country of origin) and the other is in an affluent city-state. Students in both schools do not seem eager to speak up in the classroom. I guess in countries where the olders are so much respected, the likelihood of youngsters becoming silent is hi...

Education has become the most happening issue in our world. There are some problems that are brought in the field of education, both for the low-income society or middle-to-high income society. The problems also come both from the students and teachers. The inequality to get the same chance for having education, lack of teachers, schools that cannot afford for proper facilities... name it! There are still a lot of problems. However, we can infer that education does matter, wherever...

I was a college student before I decided to move out of the college to take next year's entrance test. My college was located in East Jakarta, in the Jakarta Capital Region. Every week day I took public transportation to get there since it's the easiest access. In Jakarta, the best known fastest mass transportation system is called TransJakarta Busway. It has it's own path facilitated by the province government. My personal opinion as to why the fastest service is given to Jaka...


"Bullying" is our topic for this week and I'm sure the term "bullying" is sounds normal and common topic. Bullying, according to this website, (http://www.stopbullying.gov/what-is-bullying/definition/) is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may have serious, lasting problems. We all know...

I found a very interesting article in the newspaper. It is about Busway Kicks. What are Busway Kicks? In Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia, there is a transportation called Transjakarta. It is not a new vehicle or a modified-car, it’s just a new system where a bus (Transjakarta) has a special track on the road. The track is called Busway. It’s just like a train system, but without any rail, and the vehicle is bus. Other vehicles on the road (actually) are forbidden to go...

What do children need the most?? Love, respect, to play, to have fun, to be seen, to be listened to, your presence, a hero, a fostered sense of wonder, lots of hugs, to play, the chance to make mistakes, encouragement to try again, room to grow dreams, to be told yes, to be trusted, affection, guidance, to play. (http://www.growingajeweledrose.com/p/parenting-extras.html) It’s written on a website, as a guidance for parents with an emphasis for a child’s world to be hap...

Beggars are very common in our lives, especially in Indonesia. I don’t know what it is like in other countries, maybe it will be the same in other developing countries. Let's look at Depok, as one of the cities in West Java as it is actually very close to Jakarta. You can find beggars everywhere in the city I live. They beg in the streets, in front of the shops, and come house-to-house to get money. Beggars come in many forms of people. She or he can be a child, teenager, or...
