Learning from Nature


The word nature is derived from the Latin word natura, or “essential qualities, innate disposition” , and in ancient times, literally meant “birth” . Natura is a Latin translation of the Greek word physis, which originally related to the intrinsic characteristics that plants, animals, and other features of the world develop their own accord. 

The concept of nature as a whole, the physical universe, is one of several expansion of the original notion. Within the various uses of the word today, “nature” often refers to geology and wildlife. Nature can refer to general realm of living plants and animals, and in some cases to the processes associated with inanimate objects-the way that particular things exist and change of their own accord, such as the weather and geology of the earth. It is often taken to mean the “natural environment” or wilderness . [source : wikipedia] . According to Oxford dictionary nature means all the plants, animals and things that exist in the universe that are not made by people.

And from what I learn nature means, every living things in our environment that has their own relation, and because of that relation, we can live as one and made a good life . And basically Nature means “Everything” , and there is a saying “Look deep into nature and you will find and understand everything better” .  Which means, we can learn from nature, if we take notice of it better. There are plenty of wisdom we can learn from nature and also we can get plenty of benefit if we keep it better.

Although humans comprise only a minuscule proportion of the total living biomass on Earth, the human effect on nature is disproportionately large. The development of technology by human race has allowed the greater exploitation of natural resources and has helped to alleviate some risk from natural hazards. Man-made threats to the Earth’s natural environment include pollution, deforestation, and disasters.  Because of the greed of human, entire ecosystems, habitats and species that have existed for many thousands and in some cases millions of years could disappear in a little as a few decades.

Humans have burned, cut down, poisoned and torn their way through nature’s resources and treasures at a much faster rate than the Earth can sustain. [source : www.pri.org] .  Because of it our natural environment has been damaged in many way. Going green is easier than you think. There are little things you can do every day to help reduce greenhouse gases and make a less harmful impact on the environment. Taking care of the Earth is not just a responsibility -- it's a privilege. One of many little thing we can do is to pay attention to how you use water. The little things can make a big difference. Every time you turn off the water while you're brushing your teeth, you're doing something good.

And in other way we can also learn so many thing from nature, just like from moon and night sky, The decreasing moon often might feel depressing yet it teaches us to accept the fate and come back anew. A night sky without stars looks curtailed while without a moon is unfinished. But when both of them accompany each other, the view certainly says too many things. You realize that however important you might be, you need someone or the other to complete you.

In other case, butterfly also gives us something to learn. Butterfly is the most fragile mortal existing. It has a long journey of struggles which starts from it coming out of cocoon till turning out into beautiful life filling the world with colors. At every stage it falls in the face of ground, yet every time it rises and tries to shine bright. It teaches us that “within you is the power to rise above any situation or struggle, and transform into the Brightest, Strongest version of you EVER!”.

A tree doesn’t discriminates while giving fruits, rainfall is received by rich as well as poor while the sky shelters Hindus, Muslims, Christians and all other religions then why is it that humans have so many differences? Thus the best teaching that we can inculcate in us from nature is equality and loving unconditionally.

Thanking

It is really important to show your gratitude even for a very little thing. So, today I 'd like to say thank you to one of my friend Afi.

On Monday I didn't bring my wallet, but I need some money for taking local transportation to go to school because I have an urgent appointment, so I borrowed some money from her. Thanks to her i could make it. If I didn't take the local transportation, I wouldn't get to school on time.

First Holiday of 2k17

So, during this semester holiday, the most thing I do is just sleep and eat at home. But I got bored doing nothing, so I suggested to my parent to go somewhere to get some fresh air. And finally, we decided to go to Garut.

I go to Garut on 1st January 2017, why? Because we think there won't be any traffic jam during the new year eve, but then there is some traffic jam, but not too bad. We go to Garut by car, we went at 10 a.m and got there on 3 p.m.

The very first thing I do when i got to the inn that my family stayed at is unpacking thing from car and then sleep, because I feel so tired already. I sleep like, one and half hour, and got up because I must praying. The weather is getting cold there, so I going down floor and eating some food that we bought from Bandung. At night, my uncle grilled some corn and some satay, but i got sleepy because of the cold air, so I didn't eat any of that and go to sleep early.

On the next morning, I wake at five thirty a.m and I pray Subuh. The weather is so freaking cold, but thanks to my aunt who cook surabi, I feel more warm. I eat cereal and some milk as my breakfast, but that's not enough for me hehe, so I eat some bread.

My family split up onto two team, the first team is the one who want to go to Hot Water Bath, and the second one is the one who want to go to crater. I decided to go to Crater, because few days ago, I've been to Hot Water Bath in Subang. After that I prepared my self to go to Crater, because after going to the Crater we're going straight to home.

All of my thing is ready to stored in the car, and after my whole family ready, finally we're going to the crater. And on the same time, another team is going to Hot Water Bath. The Crater is not far from the Inn, we got there like, 15 minutes. We going to the Crater by car, and parked the car near the Crater. The name of the Crater is Darajat Crater, it's not too big, but there is a lot of Crater. The smell of the Crater is so freaking bad. There aren't many people there, i guess it's because they prefer to go to Hot Water Bath, due to the cold air.  And of course, we're taking some photos there. You can check the photos that my uncle took, on instagram @hakimomoto hehe.

In the afternoon we're going home, but on the way home, we're had dinner first at a restaurant there. So that's my holiday, hope i can have another holiday with my family soon, bye!

The Bear

A king loved his daughter so much that he kept her in her rooms for fear harm would come to her. She complained to her nurse; unbeknownst to her, the nurse was a witch. She told her to get a wheelbarrow and a bearskin from the king. The king gave them to her, the nurse enchanted them, and when the princess put on the skin, it disguised her, and when she got into the wheelbarrow, it took her wherever she wanted to go. She had it take her to a forest.
A prince hunted her, but when she called to him to call off his dogs, he was so astounded that he asked her to come home with him. She agreed and went in the wheelbarrow. His mother was surprised, and more when the bear began to do housework as well as any servant. One day, the prince had to go to a ball given by a neighbouring prince. The bear wanted to go, and he kicked it. When he left, she implored his mother for leave to just go and watch. With it, she went to her wheelbarrow and used the wand to turn her bearskin into a ballgown of moon-beams. At the ball, the prince fell in love with her, but she fled, so she would be back in time to hide herself. She was pleased when he told his mother of her, because she had fooled him, and laughed under the table. The second ball, she went in a gown of sunlight, and his attempts to follow her carriage did not succeed.
The third time, the prince succeeded in getting a ring on her finger. When he went home, he declared he would search for her. First, he wanted some soup, and for the bear to have nothing to do with it, because every time he mentioned his love, the bear muttered and laughed. The bear put the ring in the soup. The prince asked her to take off the skin, and she became a beautiful young woman. She told the prince and his mother how her father had kept her imprisoned, and the prince married her.

photo by : nisa nibras

So now, i'll tell you about one of many unforgettable moment in my life. It is the Graduation day from Zakaria Islamic Junior High School. The graduation day is on 20th of June 2016. I started to prepare for the ceremony for maybe a month, because after the National Examination I dont have any other schedule than the preparation time. The Graduation was held at School Hall.

On that day, I feel so happy, sad, proud, and also emberassed. Why? first, I wore kebaya for the first time in school and i also wore high heels, which makes me feel un comfortable. Second, I go to school by my self. and that felt terribly embarassing (I wore kebaya already). Third, on the graduation I do two performace, being main vocal of my accapella group, and also the main vocal of my musical poetry group. And many more.

Night before the graduation day i'm still decorating the hall, it's done at 7 p.m. that is a very tiring day, because we decorating the hall and the corridor from the morning. Many people helping the decoratin team to prepare our graduation ceremony. I am very thankfull to my juniors for helping the preparation, and also big thanks to my beloved teacher who support us from the very beggining of the preparation of our graduation.

The ceremony started at 8 a.m. it started with an announcement of the national examination result. I get one honour for being the best english grade, i'm not the only one who got the honour, but there are another 2 person who got this honour. But i felt so happy because i get a chance to make my parents proud of me. After the ceremony ends, there are some performance. First we sang our school hymne, then song for parents, and a song for our teachers. And then we do many different performance, such as band, cabaret, accapella, musical poetry, traditional dance, and many more.

Oh! i almost forget about the most important thing. We held the Graduation on Ramadhan month. That's what makes I cant forget those times, because we do many performance on puasa condition, and there are no consumption.

so that's my story, hope you enjoy it. See you later!

The invention of internet access

Historical event in the past 60 years

One invention that makes a big change to the tochnological world is the invention of internet access. Internet is computer connection which is made by US Departement of Defends on 1969, on ARPA project called ARPANET(Advance Research Project Agency Network). They demonstraiting how can we communicating each other in infinite distance with hardware and software that based UNIX. They make a connection that makes them to started build new protocol called TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol).

Innitially they do the research fot millitary importance, US Departement of Defends make computer connection system to connect computers in vital area to overcome problems if nuclear attack happen, so they can communicating easier, avoid centralized information, and if war occur they can destroy it easily. At first it only connect 4 sites, Stanford Research Institute, University of California, Santa Barbara, University of Utah, where they make entegrated connection in 1969, then ARPANET globally introduced in 1972. After that there are many people, university that want to participating on the research. That make some difficulties to ARPANET to manage things. That make them to devide ARPANET become "MILNET" and "ARPANET", milnet is for millitary importance and arpanet is for non-millitary importance, such as universities. The combination of MILNET and ARPANET is DARPA Internet, or we usually says it as Internet.

After that, access to the ARPANET was expanded in 1981 when the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded the Computer Science Network (CSNET). In 1982, the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was introduced as the standard networking protocol on the ARPANET. In the early 1980s the NSF funded the establishment for national supercomputing centers at several universities, and provided interconnectivity in 1986 with the NSFNET project, which also created network access to the supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations. Commercial Internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the very late 1980s.
