How many of you guys who don’t know what hand phone is? I guess I can surely say that hand phone has become one of the important parts of our life, and even some us cannot afford to live without handphone. Nowadays, we are more likely not only talking about hand phone, but most of us already use smartphone. Many applications are offered in order to show us the easiness to do something, especially to communicate. Whatsapp, LINE, KakaoTalk, WeChat, iMessage – I’m sure we must h...

We have just celebrated The International Day of Girls. Instead of talking about girls, I want to make it wider, as this is also for woman, or girls in any age. Girls are usually identical with the word ‘beauty’. We will take a look for awhile “the kinds of beauty” in several places. According to some websites, an ethnic group in Ethiopia believe that the more scars that a girl has in her body the better. The girls even often scratch their body in order to get the scars....

Education is one of the most important things to make a better society. I said this a lot even in some of my previous posts. When we are talking about education, most of us will directly think that it has always been school. It is not wrong, but I want to remind you that education started at home. Family, especially parents, play a key role in educating the children, transmitting values, norms, and knowledge. Parents are the first person that the children know, and parents are...

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.

There are still a lot of problems. However, we can infer that education does matter, wherever...

Everything is about digital nowadays. Technology, especially internet, has helped us a lot in doing many things. The most common thing that has been shared is information. The easiness to share everything is used by many people for education, too. You can find a lot of digital books in so many versions, and even you can download it for free. You also can download any presentations if you want to learn simpler. Sometimes, we find it hard to buy the books because somehow the cost...

It’s This-able! Talking about 'diff-ability' is something that is quite sensitive in our environment. On the other hand, actually we do not need to feel sorry to show our empathy. What matters is that we treat everybody in the same way, that’s how we appreciate each other. Take a look at Mr. Djumono. He is one of the candidates to be one of the members in legislative assembly for West Java province. He is also the only person with diff-ability that goes as the c...

The trash that can be invested is dry-trash or inorganic trash. The trash that you give will be weighted and you will get the money depends on the weight of your trash. The principal of this schoo...
