SIDRAP – Desa Bola Bulu Kecamatan Pitu Riase dikenal dengan motor taksinya. Yaitu motor yang dimodifikasi sebagai angkutan gabah, yang dulu berawal dari sepeda yang membutuhkan waktu lama.
Kepala Desa Bola Bulu Andi Mustakim wawancara via telpon, ‘saya bangga dengan lomba kejuaran ini karena sudah banyak peserta, dan keamanan di Desa kami terjamin,” ungkap Andi Mustakim. Bahkan nantinya pengunjung yang dari Taman Wisata Puncak sambil bisa singgah ikut balapan.

I am not referring the translation option as a learning tool. Browser-based translation can be quirky. While it sheds some light on inaccessible knowledge (due to language barriers), the unwary newbie might not be able to tell the difference between right and wrong.

I AM suggesting the listen option. Just type anything (or copy-paste from somewhere) in the text field and click the “listen” option.

This is a map of the wheel-ruts of modern English. Etymologies are not definitions; they’re explanations of what our words meant and how they sounded 600 or 2,000 years ago.

The dates beside a word indicate the earliest year for which there is a surviving written record of that word (in English, unless otherwise indicated). This should be taken as approximate, especially before about 1700, since a word may have been used in conversation for hundreds of years before it turns up in a manuscript that has had the good fortune to survive the centuries.

KPK, Slank Ready to Rock Corruption

Tema: The Family Entertainments

JOINING FORCES: The chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission,
Antasari Azhar (third left), poses with (left to right) Ivan, Ridho,
Abdee, Bimbim and Kaka from the band Slank. Antasari visited the band
in Gang Potlot, South Jakarta, on Wednesday to show his appreciation
for their anti-corruption campaign. (JP/P.J. Leo)
1. Many even questioned, “Antasari, who?”
But one month after Antasari Azhar was elected as KPK chairman in
December 2007, accompanied by four other unknown personalities who
were appointed as commissioners, the media criticized the anti-graft
body and dismissed it as a mere joke.
Anti-graft activists all over Indonesia slammed members of the House
of Representatives, especially those from major parties, who the
activists said had conspired to pave the way for Antasari to lead the
most powerful law enforcement body. The media and activists joined
forces to undermine the credibility of the commissioners, especially
in underlining Antasari’s questionable track record.
They pointed to allegations of how Antasari, for instance, had failed
to execute 32 West Sumatra councilors who were found guilty by the
Supreme Court when he was the province’s chief prosecutor.
2. Can a rock band help a country fight graft?
Ask Slank and the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). KPK
chairman Antasari Azhar visited the band on Wednesday, despite earlier
threats by the House of Representatives to sue Slank for their
allegedly inflammatory lyrics. “The KPK and Slank are like fish and
water, we cannot be separated because our vision and mission are the
same: to combat corruption,” Antasari said at the group’s office
located in Potlot Alley in South Jakarta.
During the meeting, Slank signed and presented Antasari with a poster
showing him hoisting a corruptor by the hair while the man pleads to
be released, saying, “I love Slankers too, peace.” In the background
of the poster, a boy is singing the song that got lawmakers so upset,
“Gossip Jalanan” (Street Gossip), with its lyrics: “Want to know the
mafia in Senayan?/ Who draw up laws?/ Draft bills for bucks.” Antasari
then signed another copy of the poster and presented it to the band.
“The KPK and Slank, we’re true friends. When one of us is down, the
other one is ready to come to the rescue,” Slank’s drummer, Bimbim,
said. Last week the deputy head of the House’s disciplinary committee,
Gayus Lumbuun, threatened to sue Slank for the lyrics to “Gossip
Jalanan”, which he deemed “hurtful” to the institution.
Talk of a lawsuit quickly disappeared when the KPK arrested lawmaker
Al Amin Nasution on April 16 for allegedly accepting a bribe. Antasari
said his visit had no connection to the dispute between Slank and the
House. He said he was there simply to strengthen ties. “We, the KPK,
fight corruption using the law and the methods that we have, while
Slank fights with their moral messages and their art, writing songs
and playing them,” he said. Slank said the threat of a lawsuit would
not silence them.
“As usual, we just take these comments as they come. Besides, in this
era of democracy, they have the right to voice their opinion,” Bimbim
said to the applause of hundreds of Slank fans, or Slankers. Antasari
also presented Slank with a certificate of appreciation for their
efforts in fighting corruption. Slank visited the KPK building last
month, presenting commission officials with a CD titled Slank
Antikorupsi, which is a compilation of corruption-themed songs from
Slank’s earlier albums.
After the presentation of the certificate, Slank played three songs,
including “Gossip Jalanan” and the Slankers’ theme song mixed with
snatches of “Maju Tak Gentar” (Move on without fear), an old patriotic
tune.
With accompaniment by Slank, Antasari sang “Juwita Malam” (Evening
Juliet) to the cheers and laughter of Slankers and reporters.
Responding to a comment from a reporter that he had a nice voice,
Antasari said, “I’m training for a post-retirement job.”

Puasa Bugar Dengan Vitamin

Menjaga kesegaran dan kebugaran tubuh selama puasa bukan hal yang
sulit, dengan menjaga pola makan dan asupan nutrisi serta rajin
berolahraga dapat membuat tubuh tetap bertenaga selama berpuasa.
Selain dengan mengatur pola makan ketika berbuka dan sahur saat
berpuasa, asupan vitamin juga tidak bisa diabaikan.

Tubuh tidak dapat menghasilkan vitamin dengan sendirinya, maka kitalah
yang harus memberikan tubuh kita asupan vitamin dari luar seperti dari
buah dan sayur. Vitamin sendiri merupakan zat atau senyawa kompleks
yang sangat dibutuhkan oleh tubuh kita yang berfungsi untuk membantu
pengaturan atau proses kegiatan tubuh.

"Vitamin berfungsi sebagai katalis atau satu zat yang membantu proses
keberlangsungan di dalam tubuh," ujar Dr. Johanes Casay Chandrawinata,
MND, SpGK, ahli nutrisi dari RS Melinda Bandung. Tanpa vitamin yang
cukup, manusia akan cepat merasa lelah dan mudah terkena penyakit.

Selama berpuasa, tubuh memerlukan banyak asupan nutrisi yang akan
menjaganya tetap bugar. Selain asupan vitamin bisa didapatkan dari
buah dan sayur, suplemen vitamin juga bisa menjadi alternatif solusi
untuk menjaga stamina dan vitalitas. "Selain manfaat tadi, vitamin
juga berfungsi untuk membantu pemeliharaan dan pemenuhan sel-sel
tubuh," ujar Johanes.

Kebutuhan tubuh akan vitamin berbeda pada setiap orang, sehingga
sangatlah sulit untuk memberikan ukuran seberapa banyak asupan vitamin
seseorang. Disinilah peran suplemen sebagai pelengkap kebutuhan
vitamin yang harus terpenuhi, terutama untuk aktivitas di bulan puasa.
Sehingga tubuh memang membutuhkan ekstra vitamin yang sangat baik
untuk tubuh. Tapi sebelum Anda mengonsumsi vitamin yang akan Anda
gunakan sebagai pendongkrak energi, sebaiknya Anda mengenal terlebih
dahulu karakter masing-masing multivitamin.

"Jika ingin mengonsumsi suplemen, pilihlah yang mengandung banyak
vitamin dan mineral," tambah Johanes. Contohnya adalah vitamin B
kompleks, lanjut Johanes, yang mampu meningkatkan metabolisme dan
memperkuat sistem kekebalan tubuh. Selain itu juga vitamin C, yang
berguna untuk mencegah infeksi serta meningkatkan daya tahan tubuh.
Serta adanya mineral, serta kelompok antioksidan seperti lycopene dan
polifenol untuk menangkal radikal bebas.
