When Marketing Meets the Internet, They Call Them SEO

Have you heard the term ‘like a kid in a candy shop’? Well, this term is applicable when finally marketing world meets the internet. It seems like everything that marketing world has been looking for is available in the internet, from prospective customers, loyal advertisers, free campaign, cheap advertising and so on. Moreover, through internet technology is possible for you to sell your products to a person who lives next door and to a person who lives in the deep of Borneo, like me.

Speaking of internet marketing then the next thing that is coming up as the topic is SEO or Search Engine Optimization. Generally, SEO is an effort to improve the visibility of websites or blogs to the search result. Well, do you ever wonder about how much people who are using search engine daily? If you are a math genius, you will try to calculate the possibility of those people who are using search engine and typing specific keyword that will lead them to your blog or website. However, with the right SEO technique, you don’t need to be a math genius to find out.

What is the meaning of the right SEO techniques, there are some broad classifications of SEO, but generally there are three types of SEO techniques; they are white hat, grey hat and black hat. What kind of techniques those are. Well, those classifications made based on the legality of the methods used in SEO for the need of marketing. SEO marketing methods that are considered to be white hat are those that are following the guidelines. The contents made are for readers and users. In other words, all the ranks reached in natural ways. However, methods that are considered to be black hat are those that are using methods that are totally disapproved by search engine. For example is, using auto ads click system, hidden text, and so on. Now, you have known which methods that are classified to be white hat and black hat and grey hat is the SEO technique that is combining those two methods.

So, what are the consequences if a website or blog that is discovered to use the black hat SEO technique? The consequences can be varying but in most cases, the blog or website will be banned, either for temporary or for good.

Actually, living in virtual world and living in real world is quite the same. You can work hard in real world to earn money and you have to work hard as well if you want to earn money from the internet. If you think that money is coming easy to you if you are working in the internet, then you should throw that thought away. Well, it is probably easier, but it is definitely not as easy as you think.

The Sixth Mission of New NASA Rover "Curiosity" to The Red Planet

Speaking of curiosity about the possibility of the Red Planet or Mars to ever ‘breath’ in the past, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is ready to launch a new Rover called “Curiosity” in order to continue the mission to find more information about the Red Planet.

This mission is actually the sixth mission. In this sixth mission, the new NASA Rover is completed with on board technology that enables the space ship to dig the hard core in order to collect samples to be analyzed whether Mars was ever beneficial for the life of microbe or not. There is always question when it comes to Red Planet because there are some evidences that lead to the fact that this planet was ever ‘breath’ but those evidences just not enough and for years NASA scientists have been striving to find the exact evidence.

The next question is what will happen if this new NASA Rover “Curiosity” is finally bringing the evidences that have been looking for? Well, no one will know the answer yet because it needs about 687 days or one year of Mars for this new Rover to reach the Red Planet. In other words, if the launching is based on the schedule, this new NASA Rover will be launched tomorrow, 24 November 2011 and will reach Mars around August 2012. So, if you want to know what “Curiosity” will get from the mission, you still have about nine months of curiosity.

A Short Story by Eka Arifin: One Sunday Morning

A Short Story by Eka Arifin

It was the beautiful Sunday morning. The sun brightened softly. The song of birds was breaking the silent around me. A fresh perfect green leaf which was floating from the tree laid in wet ground. If I could smell it, it would smell so aromatic and refreshing. But, I could not, because there was a big glass window separated me from the garden outside.

Shan Breakfast was the best breakfast restaurant in my city; the restaurant where I always have my breakfast, especially on Sunday morning. As usual I sat in one of the seat near window. After I ordered my breakfast I checked my reflection in the window. I touched my new haircut which was blonde and very short. When my order came, a chicken omelet and a cup of black coffee, someone who sat in a seat not far from me was coughing. I put my glasses in my face and glanced to him and I could see a middle aged man wore a black T-shirt was drinking his coffee to soothe his cough and then continued to eat his breakfast, a thick sandwiches with a lot of vegetables, and I guessed the sandwiches was without meat. I swallowed my spittle, that sandwiches looked disgusting for me. I backed to my omelet. I cut the omelet into the small pieces and took one of them to my mouth. I guessed the taste of my omelet contrasted with the taste of the disgusting sandwiches which was eaten by the man who wore a black T-shirt. The taste of my omelet was so perfect, the mix of seasoning and the egg tasted so delicious and the chicken was tender and tasted so spicy. Once again I glanced to see that man, but I could not see him. A waiter stood beside him blocked him from my stare. I saw that man ready to leave, and the disgusting sandwiches in his right hand, I turned my face to my omelet to prevent me vomited my meal out. Suddenly, I heard someone screamed behind me. I looked around to look for the source of the noise. I found a young girl; her face was pale and frightened. She stared to someone who lay in the floor. Someone with black T-shirt and his disgusting sandwiches fell not far from him.

The panic atmosphere increased in the restaurant. Some of the visitors of the restaurant did a preparation to leave the restaurant. According to my experience, if a kind of this case happened nobody was allowed to leave the place where the case occurred. So without waited for a long time I talked to the whole people in the restaurant.

“Ladies and Gentlemen! Nobody is allowed to leave the restaurant, before police come and check this case”, I heard my voice quivered, honestly I was nervous. In the same time I saw an old man tried to touch the body of the man.

“Don’t do that Sir! Cover your hands first!”, I told him. He only nodded his head and took out his handkerchief; he touched the artery and checked the pulse.

“He still alive!”, said the old man.

I walked toward to the body that lay in the floor. The man foamed at the mouth; his face was blue and looked so pain. I guessed he must be poisoned.

“Mr. Shan”, I talked to the owner of the restaurant, “Call ambulance! And has anybody called police?”, I shouted to the whole of restaurant.

“Yes, I have. Police will come soon!”, A young man in the corner answered.

“Thanks. I need curdle milk; I guess this man is poisoned”, I heard some people mumbled around me. One of the waitress of restaurant gave me a glass of curdle milk. With my hand which was covered by my handkerchief I tried to pour the curdle milk as much as possible to the man’s mouth.

The ambulance arrived a second after the police. They cured the man effectively. A police officer came to me and introduced himself as Mr. Potter.

“Do you know this man?”, He asked me. His deep voice a little bit frightened me.

“No Sir. I don’t know him”, I answered him clearly.

“Your idea to pour the curdle milk is good. You are right that he is poisoned, especially by arsenic.”

I do not know what to say. I just nodded my head as a sign that I understood.

“We will check the kitchen where the food has made. And who has prepared the food for him!”, Mr. Potter explained to me.

“You will not find the poison in any food in this restaurant”, I said spontaneous.

Mr. Potter showed a wrinkled face. “Why?”, He asked me suspiciously.

“Err… Because he ate a half of his sandwiches. If the sandwiches are poisoned by arsenic since the first time, he would fall as soon as he ate his sandwiches, not after he paid waiter and then ready to leave the restaurant with the sandwiches in his right hand.” I explained.

Mr. Shan, the owner of the restaurant came toward us.

“Sir, we all who work in this restaurant know Mr. Nickleby very well. He always has his breakfast in this restaurant. And he always orders the same menu every day, vegetable sandwiches. That’s why we allow him to take the sandwiches by himself.”

Mr. Potter thought seriously, his face became more wrinkle.

A younger police reported to Mr. Potter that the team did not find any poison in the kitchen, the places where the poison found only in the sandwiches and in Mr. Nickleby’s right hand.

“One victim, no proof, and no suspect”, Mr. Potter mumbled to himself.

In the same time I saw a middle aged woman entered the restaurant. Mr. Shan recognized her as Mrs. Nickleby. She seemed so old that she could be. There were black rounds around her eyes. She did not cry. But she looked so sad and fragile. Most of people in the restaurant tried to give her their sympathy. But I remained in my place.

It had been more than an hour since the case was investigated. The body of Mr. Nickleby itself had been taken to hospital. Almost most of the visitors of the restaurant started to worry. They worried about their job, their appointment and so on. I thought seriously in my seat, drank my cold black coffee and suddenly I remembered a silly thing. Actually it would not become a silly thing in ordinary situation, but at that time, when people worried about the case, about their appointment and job. I worried about the payment of my breakfast. I took my wallet from my pocket, and suddenly it reminded me to something. I stood from my seat and walked toward to Mr. Potter.

“Mr. Potter would you like to check the hand of the waiter who received the payment from Mr. Nickleby. I guess you will find the poison in there!” without asked me, he did what I said.

Not more than five minutes a young thin police with his nervous face, reported to Mr. Potter that what I had said was true. The waiter was embarrassed when he knew that the police found the arsenic in his hand. I felt so guilty when I looked his face. The police almost confiscated him, but I stopped them.

“He did not do that, he did not kill Mr. Nickleby. He only received the money which had been smeared by arsenic!” I explained. “That’s why Mr. Nickleby fell after he did the payment.”

Once again police did the arsenic test. They found the arsenic in the money which had been given by Mr. Nickleby and also in all of the money in his wallet.

Mr. Potter and I were looking each other for a while. And together we turned our focus to Mrs. Nickleby who was sitting in one of the seat bar of the restaurant. She turned her face to avoid our stares to her. Mr. Potter walked toward her, suddenly she cried, the first cry that I saw since she found that her husband was poisoned. She had an expression of submission when police did the arsenic test in her hand. And a minute after that she was taken by the police out from the restaurant followed by most of the visitors of the restaurant.

***

I sat alone in my room, my fingers ready in my laptop’s keyboard, ready to write everything that had happened in the morning of that day. Suddenly I smiled to myself, and I praised myself for everything that I had done. I was so proud with my perfect plan. I was true that Mrs. Nickleby would kill her husband who had married her for twenty years. I knew exactly that Mrs. Nickleby was a kind of fragile woman, with a thin and nervous face. She was so paranoia. She told me she worried that her husband would leave her for another woman because she was not young anymore. She also told me that in every our meeting session she would not allow a kind of this thing happened to her. If she could not get her husband nobody also. As her psychiatrist, was easy to me to influence her mind. Just whispered that I had saw her husband on one Sunday morning had had breakfast with a young girl in the restaurant where her husband always has his breakfast. She would do what I guessed she would do. And I was true. I did it to support my theory, which I would put to my book, that the human’s brain was a chain of fragile system; the easiest system to be penetrated and pirated in this world. I saw my reflection in my room window. Once again I smiled to myself, should I put the name of the beauty parlor, which had helped me to chance my appearance so Mrs. Nickleby could not recognize me in the restaurant, in my book’s ‘thanks to’ page. I smiled again and decided I should not.

***

Two months after the case. I published my book. Appropriate with my plan. The book became the best seller. So I should not do my resentful job as a psychiatrist anymore.

  • - The last thing is replacing the URL of where the picture is coming from.

You have to make sure that the picture is having .jpg as the extension and you can get the picture from anywhere and I took the pictures from my Facebook.

Gunung Palung National Park


Gunung Palung National Park is located in Ketapang, province of West Kalimantan and comprises an area of 90.000ha and its height is about 1116m. In this national park is noted about 3.500 varieties of flora, 71 varieties of mammal, and 250 varieties of bird. At least 7 varieties of vegetation are found in this national park; it is mangrove forest, freshwater swamp forest, peat swamp forest, sediment forest, sub alpine forest, lowland and highland tropical forest. It makes this national park become the best and the widest Tropical Dipterocarpus Forest in Kalimantan. The main fascination of this national park is the population of Orangutan (Pongo pygmeaus); the scarce animal which is protected by law. Another fascination of this park is the variety of floras; Black Orchid (Coelogyne pandurata) is the most unique flora in this national park. The fascination of this flower can be seen from its pattern which is green with black pocks in the center of the flower. This flower is easy to found in the bank of Matan River around February up to April.

Besides the rich of flora and fauna, Gunung Palung National Park also has some tourism objects which are interesting to visit. Pulau Datuk beach which is located in sub district of Sukadana is one of the places that worthy to visit by tourists who like to swim and enjoy the view of sea. The location is side by side with Gunung Palung.

Riam Berasap Waterfall is another tourism objects in Gunung Palung. The height of this waterfall is around 16m and it falls to the lake with 300m2 wide. The location which is
difficult to be reached is match for the tourists who like adventure. The tourists should walk for about 6 hours to reach the location. As the suggestion, the tourists also should be guided by the local people who understand the field. The route which usually taken will pass some beautiful grasslands and hills with incline about 45°.

Some locations in Gunung Palung National Park can be used as the place to camp. Some locations which are usually suggested by the local people is Lubuk Baji and Gunung Peramas. To reach Lubuk Baji, the tourist should walk for about 8 hours from Sutra Village. In this location we will find some ecosystems such as lowland forest, secondary forest, sub Montana and swamp. In this location we can also find a waterfall with height about 20m. Gunung Peramas is one of the most important objects in Gunung Palung, because in this location we can find the biggest population of Orangutan and Hornbill (Rhinoplax vigil). Besides that, in this location, we also can visit a facility of Introductory Study of Paramas Environment which is managed by Palung Foundation. Later, a herbarium, insectariums, and a general information facility about environment education will be built in this location. To reach this location, the tourists should walk for about 2 hours.

Beside Introductory Study of Paramas Environment facility in Gunung Paramas, in Gunung Panti (1050m) we also can find another observation facility which is established by Laboratory of Tropical Forest Ecology of Harvard University cooperates with Directorate General of Forest Utilization in the Department of Forestry and Estate Crops of the Republic of Indonesia. This project concerns in protecting the population of Orangutan in Gunung Palung National Park. This observation facility consists of one research center, some residences for the researchers and library.

Fortunately, since Gunung Palung is specified as the National Park in 1990, the destruction of some Floras and Faunas by illegal logging which is actually discussed recently has not happened in this area. However, some actions have been done to prevent this thing. The establishing of Observation facility in Gunung Panti is one of the examples. In 2003, the local people around Gunung Palung National Park have been helping to protect the Orangutan and its habitats. They call themselves as OPMU (Orangutan Protection and Monitoring Units). Their actions take some attentions from them who care. Now, OPMU is helped by Fauna and Flora International, a conservation institution bases in England, to do the operational works in field.

Beside the protection of Orangutan population, Indonesia government also has been working together with European Union to stop the illegal logging which is progressively expand in some locations in Kalimantan by making a program named Illegal Logging Response Center. ILRC helps in providing some equipments such as Image Satellite Spot-5 to check the condition of the National Park, computers, and telephone. Besides that, ILRC also gives the financial support. In regularly, ILRC will get report about the activities from the manager of the National Park.

To get to the National Park, there are two alternative ways to take. First is via Ketapang, from Pontianak – Ketapang is needed 1 hour by plane or 6/7 hours by motorboat. After that, from Ketapang the tourists should travel by bus for about 2 hours to go to Sukadana. To reach Gunung Palung from Sukadana, the tourist can use longboat in rainy season, however in dry season the tourists can use sampan to reach the location. The second alternative is via Telok Melano, from Pontianak – Telok Melano, by taking Rasau Jaya route, the tourists need 3 up to 4 hours by speedboat or 10 hours by motorboat. After that, from Telok Melano the tourists can continue the journey by speedboat or sampan to reach the location of Gunung Palung National Park.

The condition of society in Gunung Palung National Park is as various as its ecosystems. The local people mostly are Dayak and Malay, but we also can find some races such as Madura, Chinese, and Javanese. Most of them are farmers and fisherman; some of them who live in Gunung Peramas also work as the stone miners. However, on holidays, such as on Muslim Celebration Day and New Year, most of the local people are busy to do the trading activities such as selling foods, drinks and some snacks in Pulau Datuk beach. Because on those times are the times when Pulau Datuk beach is crowded by visitors.
