0 Asian Football : Indonesia Defeat

Last night, Indonesian ​​public had to swallow a bitter pill after knowing the fact that their football national team has defeat from Japan in Asian Cup football qualifying age under 22. Here, we can see that the quality of Indonesia's national team is still far behind Japan football national team. Japan tim has showed very impressive games. They continue outperform the Indonesian game in all line. Japan make Indonesian player helpless. Indonesian players were not able to develop the game.

When the ball is dominated by players of Indonesia, Japanese players immediately held a fairly stringent safeguards. This causes the player of Indonesia often lose the ball. The average quality of individual players of japan team are also very good. Its very reasonable if Indonesia team should be defeat with Japan. We must admit it.

AFC U22 Asian Cup 2013

Actually, a couple of times Indonesian player can hit the Japan defense. But again, the attacker from Indonesia were not able to make any single goal into Japan's net. The only goal which created by Indonesia was a penalty kick. That penalty kick was resulting from a Japanese defender player who touched the ball in the penalty area.

Of course, this is will became homework for Indonesian football if we want our football can go to the world class stage. Be the one of team who could qualify in world cup is always become our dream. But, do not be too much dreaming of playing in the World Cup, when in Asian Cup level, we are not able to qualify.

I saw from the games showed by Indonesian team yesterday, still relies on agility of Andik Firmansyah. Unfortunately, right now there is no player who can set the ball in midfield. I can not see a midfield player who can play as good as Egy Melgiansyah. Even so, the team actually is already showed a quite good games, but the mental qualities which is need to be improved. I hope in the next game, Indonesia will able to overcome the Singapore national team in the last game.

The following is a table of Asian Cup Qualification standings under the age of 22 years, Japan leads with 12 points from four wins.

Japan 4 4 0 0 12
Australia 4 3 1 0 10
Singapura 4 2 1 1 7

2 Why We Must Write?

In the language skills, at least there are four skills which should be mastered. Those are speaking, listening, reading and writing. Hearing and reading more often said to be a passive ability, while speaking and writing more to be said as active ability. It can be said as active ability because that ability not only be used for themselves, but also intended to other people. This active capability, making anything should have been through from process of thinking. Because if not, then whatever is produced, will not be much any effect to others.

Make writing as our habits

At this moment, I will focus on discussing about writing skill. These active language skills is quite unique. Writing can be regarded as the heart expression through unvoiced verbal. But out there, there are many people are bit lazy to write, they prefer doing some activity like watching television or maybe reading a book. But in fact, we should realize that the spirit of writing is something which is very close related to thinking process.
"Many people prefer reading than writing, because he was too lazy to think". G.C. Lichtenberg (1742-1799, German writer).

For us who love in reading activity, then we should say many thanks to the authors who have contributed with their precious time and energy in making good book to increase our knowledge. Actually I'm not a professional writer, I'm just blogger who likes to write. But right now, I will explain the reason why we should write. I hope it can give much spirit for you to write.

The following are some reasons why we should write :
1. Be Smarter.
We should understand that knowledge we have right now, actually is stored in the memory into specific location in our head. When it is needed, sometimes is hard to access it especially when we are on the panic situation. One way to keep the knowledge alive, is by write it down. Then that knowledge will be survive in our head.

2. Knowledge and Science are Moving Around.

It can be said that knowledge and science are like a little child who like running around. They move here and there. That is very dynamic. So it is normal if it hard to catch them. So the right way to tie the knowledge is by write it.

3. Able to think more systematically.
If you want to write, you need to write your idea into the writing systematically. If not, then your writing will be hard to be understand.  

4. Controlling Emotions.
 By doing writing, it could help to control emotion. You can not write in a hurry. You need time to assemble ideas which exist in the brain, into writings which are easily understood by readers. The idea in the brain is random. You need to arrange it into a good sentence and nice paragraph. That takes time. By doing that, you will learn to control emotions.

5. Expressions of Empathy and Defense.
If we want to do a defense, then it doesn't have to speak out. We don't have to talk. We can defend using writing. Especially if our writing is read by thousands of people, the effect can be very extraordinary. We can influence many people.

Just write your sympathy to the person you want to sympathize with.

6. Have many friends.
With writing, we will have many friend. Because with our writing, many people will know us. They know about us based on our writing. 

7. Increase the Coffers of Revenue.

Many bloggers and writer able to get much money from writing.

Probably there are many more reasons why we should write. Hopefully the above reasons make us have a high motivation to write and blogging.

0 Write with Brave

One time, I was told by someone that an author or a blogger is a brave person. I need to digg more about what he was talking about. I'm curious why an author or blogger can be called as a brave person. We should know the fact that when an author has produced a paper or book, her/his writing was potentially read by millions of people. So that an author should dare to be criticized by many people related to the results of his work. That is why an author is brave people.

Once time, a famous author was giving a seminar about the authorship. At that time, he asked one of audience. "How many writings had already you made?". Seminar participants said that he had a lot of writing, but he never show it into public. So his writing is only for personal consumption (like diary). He was embarrassed when from his writings, people will measure his intelligence from his writing.

So it is very clear that the writer should be a brave person. He should be brave when his writings will received negative responses from the readers. He must be brave if his writings are considered  as a bad writing by a lot of people. And certainly, he should have the courage, if his writing will get a lot of attention from public, and suddenly he become famous people.

It is true that writing is one of medium to measure intelligence an author. Come to think, there is some truth in this sentence. For example, it is my self. When I want to write, I will automatically use all of my knowledge related to the topic. So a reader will easily find out level of intelegency of the author which is related to the topic. And when the author produce a lot of writing, then that is where we can easily measure the intelligence of the author.

For me, people who already write and publish his writings deserve to be called a brave person. Even if it is true that he is not smart enough, I will stay say that he is a brave person. Because not a few people who love to write (already make a lot of writings), but apparently that is only for their personal consumption. Some of them too fear if their writing will be read by someone else and then they will measure the intelligence of author.

I do not know, but for me personally, writing activity is the work of the heart and feelings. Because when the heart and the feel are talking, then there is no longer the term of intelligent and unintelligent. So, please don't afraid, just write it.

0 How to Find Writing Ideas

When we talk about blogging, then it will be very closely related to activity of writing. We know that writing is the fundamental spirit of blogging. Of course, that is the writing which readable and provide insight and information to a reader, not the writing which is messy and tend not easy to understand. When we are blogging, it is like when we have a shop. Certainly, we will present the best products to be shown in that shop. Then we wait for potential buyers to see our product. Whether the goods we are presenting, will make the buyers interested in buying or not. In blogging, the product is a writing.

One of the way or solution to make an interesting writing is to find an good and interesting idea. But, the problem is how do we find an interesting idea? Yes I know that looking for an interesting idea is not as easy as imagined. Let us quote what was ever stated by the number one novelist Indonesia, Habiburrahman El Shirazi.
An idea is like a fish in the sea. Of course, we can not calculate the number of fish in the sea. This means that the amount of fish in the sea is so much. Let us imagine that the writer is like a fishermen. There are two type of fishermen, namely lazy fishermen and creative fishermen. Lazy fishermen often just stay and sit on the beach hoping there are any big fish washed up dead and then bring that big fish to the home. I understand it, this phenomena might have often happened. But how many times this phenomena happend in a year? of course it should be very rare.
Well, in the other side, the creative fishermen are fishermen who use all his effort with different ways to catch a fish. Some of them use nets, fishing line and even some of them form groups of fishermen to get more fish. This parable also applies to the writer. The idea are ​​hanging around everywhere like a fish in the sea. So it all depends on ourselves, are we want to be creative or not.

As already explained by Habiburaman El Shirazi in above, that the idea was wandering everywhere. The daily experiences can be the source of idea to write. Meeting with some people around us can be the source of idea to write. Travelling or vacation is also could become idea of writing. There are so a lot of sources of idea around us which can be writen. 

But not all good ideas can be convert into an interesting writing. The best way is by constantly writing. I'm sure that continuously writing can form our own character in writing activity. The characters which surely would be different with other writers. 

So, wanna try this way?

2 Nvidia and Google Nexus 7

Yesterday, in my twitter I have read a news from my friend that Asus will release soon a new tablet. That gadget will called Google Nexus 7. With a very low price, this gadget seems will make a lot of people curious. This Google tablets is manufactured by Asus, which will be the first gadget use the latest Android, Jelly Bean. Nexus 7 carrying the Nvidia Tegra chip 3 and use the 1.3 GHz processor. This tablet is scheduled to be release on the market in middle of July.

source picture : androidcommunity.com

What is interesting here is how this tablet uses Nvidia Tegra chip 3. We know that Nvidia is a leading semiconductor / chipset manufacture that started its business since 1993. NVIDIA CEO and co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang, in a video released by Stanford University describes how his company can be successful and able to survive until now. Whereas many smart people out there, many people with a lot of money out there, that can make a similar company. But today, we can see that Nvidia still exist and become one of succesfull company in semiconductor business. Also, in 2012 Nvidia's provisional income is about U.S. $ 3,997 billion. Wow, isn't that very incredible income?

Also in that video, Jen-Hsun Huang explained to us, what is make his company can be success like today. Become one of a great semiconductor company in the world is not easy. He implemented a strategy how to make the product in any one year, it can increase the speed twice, and the price can more cheaper twice. This vision is still firmly held by Nvidia from the start until now. In 1993, he said that there were hundreds of semiconductor companies such as Nvidia. But all of them one by one began to fall and shut down his business and moved to other businesses. Nvidia is the only one company that still survive, and was a success in the field of high performance GPU market.

And the interesting to note here is that Nvidia has now move into the mobile computing market, where phones and tablets is powered by Tegra processors. In the future, we will see how Nvidia apply the innovation and creativity in controlling of chipset technological global market.

0 EURO 2012 : Prediction, Germany vs Italy

Undeniable, two teams which showed good performance in the UERO's tournament this year were Germany and Spain. And according to prediction of many peoples, Spain finally qualified for the finals after beating Portugal on penalty shoot drama last night. Now, Spain just wait who will be his opponent in the final, whether Germany or Italy.

Armed with a victory in all matches at group stage and also playing with a very impressive performance, Germany team may be more favored to win the game against Italy tonight. Coach Jose Mourinho (who has nickname 'the special ones') also said that the two teams who is worthy would meet at the final stage in UERO 2012 are Der Panzer and Matador.

Although Germany would be more favorited to win against Italy, but Azzuri's team can not be underestimated. First game against ​​Spain was a proof that Cesare Prandelli's team is no longer using Catenaccio defense techniques. Attacking style now started to be practiced by Pirlo et al. Compared with the Catenaccio technique, Italy is now show nice performance. Now the style of game of Italy has begun to change. Hopefully tonight, big match between Germany and Italy will present a more quality match.

I personally support the Germany national team to win the game. I hope Germany could repeat the successfully winning UERO's final stage four years ago after beat Spain. Then, what do you think?

0 Getting The Newest Information is Lifestyle

Today, getting the newest information have already become a lifestyle. Especially if we live in urban areas. Internet is already like a soul in our lives. Only one day we live without internet, it is like we live in the jungle. Is it right? imagine when we live in the jungle, there is no information, there is no online game, there is no television, there is no Facebook, no Twitter, no Instagram etc. Of course we will feel the world seemed to be so small. Whereas before, if we have a little time to look back, just before discovery of internet, we still could live as usual, right?  Before the discovery of cellular phone, we can still use manual letter instead. That's the miracle of internet.

Information Technology

But, today we live in the information age. Gadgets popping up one after another, it seemed they compete with each other to grab market. Development of technology of this gadget, one of the main goal is to provide information as soon as possible to the user.

Getting newest information is lifestyle
The rapidly development of information technology makes the earth become very close. We can get the information from all around the world just in a few second. Just type it into google everything we want to know, then we will get that information in a second. I think this is the advantage of internet.

Technology, Two Sides of a Coin

But all that thing also have disadvantages. With the rapid spread of information as it is today, people become tend to be more individualistic. Whereas before, we often get information from our friends or our family. But now, we could get all the information from our gadgets in the hand. So with the internet, more people become anti social.

In my mind, I always sure that internet like two side of money. In one side, we get a lot of advantages like information we need. And the other side, we should anticipate all the bad things caused by it. Bad things like pornography, cyber crime, defamation etc. Hopefully, we can interpret correctly all the advances in technology. the advances in technology might be could change our lifestyle, but I hope we can interpret this lifestyle wisely.
