The link between man and God is Faith

0 komentar
Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son?
Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is God good?
Student: Sure.

Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is God good, then? Hmm? (Student was silent)
Professor: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?
Student: Yes.

Professor: Is Satan good?
Student: No.

Professor: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From God.

Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.

Professor: So who created evil? (Student didn't answer)
Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them? (Student had no answer)
Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son, have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.
Student: No, sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.

Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor: Yes.

Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student: No, sir, there isn't.
(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)

Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There was a pin-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light... But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it's called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir? (The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher? (The class was in uproar)

Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain? (The class broke out into laughter)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smelt it?  No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures? (The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.

Student: That is it, sir, exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!

Microsoft Patches 'Critical' Crack in Windows

2 komentar
Microsoft on Monday released an emergency patch for a “critical” crack in Windows operating system software that could let hackers take control of computers over the Internet.

“The vulnerability could allow remote code execution if the icon of a specially crafted shortcut is displayed,” the US technology giant said in a security bulletin ranked ’Critical.’

“An attacker who successfully exploited this vulnerability could gain the same user rights as the local user.”

Computer users commonly use short-cuts in the form of on-screen icons they can click to instantly awaken favored applications. The Windows flaw lets hackers booby-trap such icons with malicious software that could let them control machines from afar.

Microsoft routinely releases software patches the second Tuesday of each month but resorts to making patches available “out of band” when it deems situations dangerous.

“Several families of malware have been attempting to attack this vulnerability,” Microsoft Trustworthy Computing response manager Christopher Budd wrote in a blog post.

“We firmly believe that releasing the update out of band is the best thing to do to help protect our customers.”

Some attacks have reportedly been directed at power plants and other vital infrastructure. People using computers running on any version of Windows software were urged to apply the update immediately.

Paul’s prediction in Germany vs Spain match!!!

1 komentar
Paul has finally predicted the outcome of the match between Germany and Spain. The prediction seems to be true.
With no further delay, behold the new picture of Paul the Octopus’s latest prediction. Yes, he thinks that Spain will sink the 3-times World Champions to advance to the finals. The official words come from the Oberhausen’s Sea Life Aquarium on Tuesday.
“Paul has decided that Spain will win,” Fey said in a phone interview. “But — and that’s a big but — Paul got it wrong only one time and that was also a game between Germany and Spain, therefore we think he just simply can’t get it right when it comes to this combination.”
Paul’s predictions in this world cup have been accurate and flawless. The officials have said that Paul will be predicting the finals even IF the Germans win their match against Spain. But will they win??
Let me know about your views regarding this.

Love needs tolerance

0 komentar
In order to experience everlasting love in life, you ought to first figure out what is missing in your life and then fill in the gaps. People fall in and out of love because they expect their lovers to be everything to them and do everything for them. They then become dissatisfied when the partner fails to meet all their requirements. If you have a dream of achieving everlasting love you better create your very own life crowned by hobbies, interests and beneficial passions. This makes you a full lover when you enjoy a complete, interesting life on your own. Create a world of your own. On your to-do-list add forgiveness. It is always healthy to forgive while you can, disappointments and sadness is a part of life.

Some people find it hard to forgive their partners especially if they happened to catch them cheating on them. Seek professional help from a marriage and relationship counselor. This is an important move towards search for everlasting love. Most buried resentments are the cause to failed marriages and broken relationships. At one time they resurface and blow the present things out of proportion. To find a smooth sail in your love life you have to learn to forgive and move on with a clean slate. Accept changes when they arrive instead of fighting the reality. In life change is inevitable. At one time you will be loved, dumped, married, you will have children, become sick and die. You should acknowledge the happenings in life and move through them strongly. No matter how settled you might be it is good to know that things can change in an instant.

Always accept the unexpected. Always find Happiness in what you have and be grateful to own what you have. It is a great secret to everlasting love. Despite the greatest fear and uncertainties of the unknown, when the inevitable things happen you will look back on the good old times and wish that you had been more grateful when things were more colorful. To enjoy your love life you should give thanks every moment and learn to appreciate the small problems we experience because unknown to us they can get worse and some time they probably will. To experience how it feels to have everlasting love, create time for each other as lovers. Many people who are unhappy keep on postponing time to be together. People get caught up in the many and demanding daily activities and forget to get time to live for today.

It happens to me and you. There will always be more laundry, more house chores and more errands to be carried out. It is a routine where we retire to bed when we are very exhausted late at night only to awake and follow the same routine again the next day. To live life to the fullest stop at some point and take time for yourself and for each other too. Today might be the only gift you have in life so live like there is no tomorrow. The precious moments we reckon in life are achieved by creating time for them against the much pressure of work. Create such short and fleeting moments everyday to enjoy everlasting love.

Apple Unveils New iPhone 4

0 komentar
Apple has tonight unveiled the fourth generation of its iPhone which is thinner, more powerful and lighter than any of its previous incarnations.
The firm's boss Steve Jobs took to the stage at the Apple developer's conference in San Francisco tonight to officially unveil the worst-kept secret in technology - the iPhone 4.

Coated in glass front and back, the iPhone 4 has a high definition screen and will give new life to a handset that has achieved 50million sales in three years despite its high cost.
Jobs said the new-look device was the 'biggest leap' it had taken since the launch of the first iPhone.
'This is one of the most beautiful designs you've ever seen,' said Jobs. 'This is beyond a doubt one of the most precise and beautiful things we've ever made.'
The fourth generation iPhone will allow users to multi-task, operating a series of applications at the same time, which is something rival devices already have.
It also has a powerful 5 mega-pixel camera with built-in LED flash and is able to record high definition video.



And it has a front-facing video camera whixh enables users to video-conference for the first time on an iPhone. This feature will be know as FaceTime, said Jobs.
Jobs also announced that the new iPhone's resolution is far superior to any other smartphone screen currently available.
Unveiling the gadget's so-called 'retinal display' of 326 pixels per inch (ppi) Jobs said this was better than the magic number of of 300 ppi.
Above 300 pixels per inch the naked eye is unable to differentiate between digital screens or a printed book. The technology will be crucial if Apple hopes to dominate the eBook market.
iPhone 4 also has a much longer battery life, overcoming complaints that earlier versions burn through the power supply too quickly.
Other extras include a gyroscope which, when coupled with the existing accelerometer and compass, gives it six axis motion sensing.
And in a warning to Google, Jobs also announced that Microsoft's Bing and Yahoo will both now come as search options on the iPhone as well.
Jobs also announced the introduction of iBooks for the iPhone which will synch across all Apple devices including the iPad and the iPod Touch.
Another innovation is the introduction of iAds, specially designed adverts that will tie in with apps.
iPhone users will also be able to play hugely popular social media game Farmville, which is played by 35million people worldwide via Facebook.
The developers have written a version of the game which does not require Adobe's Flash, which Apple refuses to carry.
Apple faces a major challenge to its dominance from a raft of new smart phones from rival manufacturers that are powered by the Android software system developed by Google.
Historically, Apple has thrown up a wall of steel around its new products, keeping all details secret until the official announcement. However, that has failed on this occasion.
An Apple executive apparently left a disguised example of the latest iPhone in a bar in Redwood City, California, where it was found and passed on to the gadget website Gizmodo.
Gizmodo said the new design is sleeker, flatter and squarer than the iPhone 3GS that it will replace.
Apple's fury at the website's decision to publicise its findings has seen its staff banned from the San Francisco event.
The arrival of the new iPhone is expected to lead to Apple discontinuing supply of the original 3G version, while the price of the 3GS is expected to come down.
Currently, the UK's biggest mobile network, Orange, offers a 16GB iPhone 3GS for £189 for those who take out a £25 a month contract for two years. That is a total cost comes to £789.
The same phone can be bought for £450 for those who want a pay as you go deal.
Analyst at technology research firm Gartner, Carolina Milanesi, said: 'The iPhone 4.0 will keep it (Apple) ahead of the game.
'Is it as easy as last year to stay ahead? No. I think Android has made huge progress.'
Rodman & Renshaw analyst, Ashok Kumar, said: 'Android is the only real contender to the throne.'
He said other rival smartphone manufacturers including Nokia, the BlackBerry company RIM and Microsoft are struggling to land a blow on the iPhone.
Samsung has just released two new premium smartphones powered by the Android system, the ‘Wave’ and the ‘Galaxy S’.
Like the latest iPhone, The Wave, has what it calls a hyper definition screen giving superb image quality.
Samsung claims the technology built into The Wave provides superfast download speed and the quickest access to the internet over WiFi to date.
Historically, Apple has scored because of the tens of thousands of applications - Apps - available from its download store, including iTunes, games, maps, videos and many more. However, the Android Apps store is beginning to catch up.

Dell Android Tablet to Tackle The iPad

0 komentar
US computer giant Dell will begin selling an Android tablet computer called the "Streak" in Britain next month.

With a five-inch (12.5-centimeter) screen, the Streak is smaller than the Apple iPad which goes on sale in Australia on Friday following its debut in the United States last month.

"The Dell Streak hits the sweet spot between traditional smartphones and larger-screen tablets," Ron Garriques, the president of Dell Communication Solutions Group, said in a statement.

"Its unique size provides people new ways to enjoy, connect, and navigate their lives," Garriques said.

Apple's iPad has a 9.7-inch (24.6-centimeter) color screen. The California maker of the Macintosh computer, iPhone and iPod sold over one million of the devices in the first month of availability.

Dell said the Streak will be available in the United States later in the summer. A spokesman for Dell Australia there are not plans as yet to sell it in Australia.

The company did not announce prices for the device, which connects to the internet through Wi-Fi or 3G cellular networks.

Dell said the Streak gives users "'on-the-go' entertainment, social connection, and navigation experience" and is "ideal for experiencing thousands of Android Market widgets, games and applications."

The Streak features a multi-touch display, a high-resolution five megapixel camera and two gigabytes of dedicated storage, Dell said. Unlike the iPad, it can run Adobe's popular Flash software.

I'm looking at something

0 komentar
I'm looking at something that is square in shape.
It’s silver and has a screen, under that been a wheel.
In the wheel there were four symbols, a fast forward and rewind, menu and play.
Behind it, at the bottom, there's writing that says things about copy written rights.
There's a hole at the bottom of it that is there for it to charge and update.
At the top there's a hole and a tab, the hole is for the headphones and the tab is to put it on hold.
It doesn't make a sound unless I connect headphones and press play.
It also makes a sound when I put my finger on the wheel and spin it.
When I turn it on and play a song it comes through on the headphones.
It smells like metal all around but on the top it smells like marker.
It feels smooth and cold.
It tastes like metal or what I would think metal tastes like.
Except for the top, there it tastes like paper.

The item is iPod.

The Cure Unleash Disintegration-Era Goodies on New Website

0 komentar
If you were an angsty teenager in 1989, there's a pretty good chance that the Cure's Disintegration was your favourite album. A gothic opus with 12 songs that stretch over 70 minutes, it's a far cry from pop hits like "Friday I'm in Love" or "Just Like Heaven." Still, the album remains the highest-selling and best-loved moment of the Cure's celebrated career.

Still-going ‘80s mope rockers the Cure are now just weeks away from reissuing their classic, and perhaps most beloved, album, Disintegration. To celebrate, the band are hosting a new site: thecuredisintegration.com.



The new site features a host of Disintegration-era material, including a slew of videos, demos, Robert Smith-penned liner notes and two new songs: “Tuned Out on RTV5” and “Fuknnotfunk.”

The new site features a host of Disintegration-era material, including a slew of videos, demos, Robert Smith-penned liner notes and two new songs: “Tuned Out on RTV5” and “Fuknnotfunk.” We already reported that the album was due to receive a trip-disc reissue this year. Now, the Deluxe Edition has now been given a release date of May 24 courtesy of Rhino, and the Cure's blog offers a detailed breakdown of what the the extras are composed of.

The first disc will feature the original album in remastered form. Disc two contains home recorded demos and outtakes from 1988-989, including four previously unreleased songs: “Noheart,” “Esten,” “Delirious Night” and Judy Collins’s “Pirate Ships.” Disc three will be an expanded version of the 1990 live album Entreat, which was recorded over three nights at London's Wembley Arena in 1989. Entitled Entreat Plus, it expands the original eight-track collection to twelve songs — the entire Disintegration album in live form.

It's been 21 years since the original album was released, so it's about time the album got the reissue treatment. Now, a new generation of moody teenagers can make it their favourite album.

Disintegration Deluxe Edition:

Disc One: Remastered Album

1. "Plainsong"
2. "Pictures Of You"

4th generation iPhone

0 komentar
A new set of photos of a 4th generation iPhone prototype have surfaced on a Vietnamese website. The phone in the photos - which bears Apple markings - look almost identical to the one which was lost in March, photos of which were later published on the US gadget website Gizmodo.

If the new images prove to be authentic, and the components of the disassembled phone appear to confirm the provenance, then it marks another serious security breach for Apple.

According to a YouTube video accompanying the write-up on the Vietnamese website, the prototype was bought by a businessman from an unnamed source for $US4000.

The new prototype looks to include several new changes from the one lost in March, indicating that it might be a more advanced test unit.

Pictures of the phone's innards reveal what looks to be a smaller version of the A4 CPU, the same processor family that drives the iPad.

Apple, which is known for its obsession about keeping new products under wraps, is due to release the 4G iPhone in a few months.

The discovery is a boon for companies which make iPhone accessories and gives them a valuable head start in designing new covers and pouches for the next model.

Last month Gizmodo pulled off a major scoop when it posted photos of the new iPhone, which had been left in a Silicon Valley bar by Apple engineer Gray Powell during his birthday drinks. The finder later sold the phone for $US5000 to Gizmodo, a gadget blog owned by Gawker Media.

According to Gizmodo, features of the new phone, expected to be unveiled later this year, include a front-facing video camera for video chat, a flash and an improved regular camera with a larger lens.

It also has a flat back instead of curved back, is thinner than the 3GS, is heavier and has a larger battery.

Take Charge of Your Career

0 komentar
Recently a high school student sent me some questions which boiled down to:

Which computer career pays the most money and has the most job security?

I was floored.

Job security?

Does this 16 year old kid write term papers on a typewriter? Call her friends on an AT&T Princess telephone? Twirl a hula hoop? Listen to a transistor radio?

Make the most money?

Does anybody really give credence to those tables showing that in Boise ID the average programmer makes $1543 more than the average network engineer?

Who cares? Do you want to be average? Is anybody average?

The truth is, although it'd be irresponsible of me to have advised her to study COBOL, she'll make the most money at whatever career she most enjoys, given some reasonable demand for it in the marketplace.

The more she works at giving her employers her best, the more money she'll make.

The more she uses her skills to solve more problems for more people -- and this can and should be some activity far beyond normal employment -- the more money she'll make.

Chances are, by the time she graduates from college the highest paying computer skill will be something nobody outside research laboratories has yet heard of.

In the long run, she'll make as much money as she sets out to make. No more and no less.

Some computer programmers are now on welfare.

Bill Gates is the richest man in the world.

The more you *create your own job* -- whether you're formally an employee or not -- the more security you have.

In THE MILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR, Thomas Stanley and William Danko compare the "security" of employment with the "insecurity" of self-employment.

Work for a company and you get a paycheck at regular intervals, as long as the company needs you, does not go out of business and is not merged or bought out by another company.

The owner of a pest control business has irregular income, but from maybe 1000 or so different customers.

If one of those customers moves away or switches to a competitor, the pest control owner still receives income from the other 999.

Given reasonable management and marketing, pest control businesses will survive as long as the world contains mice, roaches and other bugs.

I wonder how many Enron employees now wish they were pest exterminators?

Techies who understand they must constantly search for new ways to help people -- whether employers or customers -- will make a lot of money in this the third millenium.

Techies who just want management to leave them alone to code in peace will have a niche when the economy is booming as in 1999. In bad times . . . .

If you want real job security, own your own company.

Optimize your blog for IPad

0 komentar
It's not news that the iPad has taken the world by storm. From the 99 year old who got the iPad as her first computer to the mass of people ditching their Amazon Kindles in exchange for this new ultra-portable computer, iPad is sending computer manufacturers into a tizzy.



With Apple's emphasis on HTML5, CSS and Javascript, there's a new host of web standards that any website owner or developer should get accustomed to if they want to keep visitors on their website and as engaged as they would be from any standard computer browser.

If keeping your audience engagement rates high and your bounce-rates low is important to you, here are 8 ways to optimize your blog for iPad and keep consumers on your website:

1. Remove any and all Flash
Whether you simply have flash introduction, have your videos embedded with Flash code, or your entire site is built using Flash—get rid of it. Neither the iPad nor the iPhone can read Flash and Apple developers have no intention of making the devices compatible. Any Flash objects on your website is replaced by a blue box for anyone trying to view it on the iPad. Check out Apple's list of iPad Ready Websites.

2. Update your code to HTML5
This isn't a requirement, but it's by recommendation of Apple. Besides, with the world wide web upgrading to HTML5, you might as well update your site, which the Apple iPad can not only read, but is a clean framework that will also help you in other areas such as the time it takes for your site to load.

3. Look for website plugins
If you are running any type of open source Content Management System (CMS), keep on top of available and upcoming plugins that will automatically format your website for the iPad. Joomla already has a plugin released, called the Mobile Content Switch which will let you choose which content people can view depending on which device they're browsing from.

4. Drop complicated navigation
On the iPad, drop-downs and other hovering-type menus don't always work as smoothly as they do on computer browsers. In most cases, the user can only get into the first layer of navigation and nothing underneath. If you decide to design an iPad-compatible version of your website, a more simplistic navigation will help users get to the areas of your site that they're looking for without being obstructed.

5. Remove any fixed positioning CSS
Since you can't resize your browser on the iPad like you can on a computer, Apple warns against using fixed-positioning in your CSS. The fixed elements depend on the size of your browser, and since the iPad had a fixed width and height, this can cause overlapping of elements like text and images.

6. Pay attention to Apple
Apple does more than most companies to get users involved in their products. They've put together extensive kits for developers who want to create apps on the iPhone and iPad, so it's no surprise that they already have a helpful Preparing Your Web Content for iPad guide.

7. Test your site on an iPad
This doesn't mean you need to go out and buy one, you can always just stop by an Apple store and test it out or borrow one. Just because your website displays correctly in Safari doesn't guarantee it's working on the iPad, since the browsers are built differently and optimized for different sized screens.

8. Create your own app
Not only is this a great way to monetize the content on your website, but creating an app for the iPad gives you increased exposure to consumers who might have known about your site beforehand. Whether you are a content publisher or you sell shoes online, an app created for the iPad is obviously the ultimate in iPad optimization. Start developing apps by downloading the iPad SDK.

Remember, you're designing for a touch screen. Apple has taken care of all the back-end work that transforms your HTML into touchable objects, all you have to do is make your calls to action easy to click and your layout clean to view.

BlackBerry new operating system

BlackBerry to have new operating system as it takes on Apple's iPhone

MONTREAL - The BlackBerry will have a faster browser for Internet surfing with its new operating system as the competition to win consumers continues between Research In Motion (TSX: RIM) and iPhone maker Apple.

RIM showed off its new BlackBerry operating system to analysts in a video with music by the Black Eyed Peas at its annual trade show in Florida in Tuesday.

Mackie Research Capital analyst Nick Agostino said the new operating system puts the RIM device on par with the iPhone for ease of use.

"The demonstration they made would lead you to believe that they've levelled that playing field," said Agostino, who attended RIM's trade show in Orlando.

Analysts have often knocked the BlackBerry for a clunky, slow web browsing experience.

PCMag analyst Sascha Segan noted the BlackBerry now has a "modern" web browser that uses the same core technology that's in Apple, Android and Nokia smartphone browsers.

"The new web browser is going to improve RIM's position somewhat," Segan said. "This means that hopefully with BlackBerry 6.0 that you're going to have a full desktop-like web experience."

However, Segan noted the new operating system still lacks enough appeal for developers to create consumer applications for the BlackBerry.

"Apple and Android still have the edge in consumer apps," said Segan, managing editor for PCMag Mobile in New York.

"RIM is in danger of their phones becoming things that just do what they do out of the box, as opposed to smartphones that get new features through apps every day."

Apple has been able to get a lasting buzz from its consumers applications that offer everything from identifying snippets of songs to translation services to finding restaurants.

When connecting to someone, the new system will offer all the possible ways that you can talk to them, such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Segan said.

It also has a "fancier" music player and the operating system is designed for touch devices developed by Waterloo, Ont.-based RIM and BlackBerrys with keyboards.

Segan the new operating system is designed for current BlackBerry platforms, meaning many BlackBerrys can be upgraded as long as wireless carriers OK the upgrade.

He also said RIM announced it will enhance the browser with flash technology that powers videos on a lot of websites, something the iPhone does not support.

Shares in Research In Motion closed down 28 cents at $72.59 on Tuesday on the Toronto Stock Exchange.

Tip dan Trik Menawar Harga Rumah

1 komentar
Sebelum memutuskan untuk membeli rumah atau apartemen, pastikan dulu Anda cocok dengan harga yang ditawarkan pemilik atau pengembangnya. Di sinilah pentingnya proses tawar-menawar harga.

Sebelum menawar harga rumah atau apartemen tersebut, pastikan Anda mendapatkan sejumlah informasi berikut ini:

1. Perhatikan kondisi rumah atau apartemen yang akan Anda beli. Cermati apakah jika Anda memutuskan untuk membelinya, apakah properti tersebut memerlukan renovasi atau perbaikan.

2. Cari tahu berapa lama rumah atau apartemen tersebut sudah ditawarkan. Maksudnya, apakah waktu penawarannya sudah lama atau baru saja. Ini penting agar Anda memiliki gambaran tentang respons calon pembeli lainnya terhadap unit tersebut.

3. Cari informasi tentang harga rumah yang ditawarkan tersebut dan bandingkan dengan harga beberapa rumah di sekitar, apakah mendekati sama atau tidak. Tentunya Anda harus membandingkan dengan type yang sejenis, dan dengan mengetahui harga rumah rata-rata di wilayah tersebut, maka dengan mudah Anda dapat menentukan penawaran harga.

4. Siapkan rencana untuk membuka penawaran harga kepada pihak penjual sesegera mungkin. Jangan sampai Anda terlambat oleh orang lain yang lebih dulu menawar.

5. Temukan alasan kenapa rumah tersebut dijual agar Anda dapat menentukan jumlah penawaran awal. Apakah rumah tersebut dijual karena kebutuhan mendesak pemilik atau hanya untuk mendapat keuntungan dari investasi properti yang dia miliki.

Semoga bermanfaat

No Pain No Gain

0 komentar
You've heard the saying, "No pain no gain." Recently a little boy wrote t God and said, "Dear God, My brother just told me how much it hurt my mom when I was born, but he's just kidding, isn't he?" Unfortunately, not! Yet millions of women still choose to go through the terrible pain of childbirth, because they know it's only through the pain that they can experience the great joy of having their own child.

It reminds me of the boy who wanted to help a new baby butterfly that was struggling to get out of its cocoon, so he cut open the cocoon to make it easier. But because the butterfly did not have to go through the pain of pushing and using its own muscles to work its way out of the cocoon, it had no strength in its wings, so it just laid there on the ground and died.

A favorite expression of weightlifters and bodybuilders is "feel the burn". Because even though their muscles burn in pain while they're lifting the weights, they know it's making them bigger and stronger. "Pain causes some men to break, and other men to break records." Remember, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."

Our problem is we've become "comfort creatures" that are "hooked on feelings". Don't you love the feeling of laying in your warm, comfortable bed in the morning? So why don't we just stay in bed our entire life? Wouldn't that be the happy, good life? Of course not! We know that's not real living! Because happiness and the good life is not just good feelings with no effort, pain or problems.

It's a simple fact that life's full of problems, both big and small. So when you have problems, remember everybody else does too. But it's our problems and pain that make us stronger, better people. So just like childbirth, we need to learn to work with our pain and problems to bring us a new better life. Your stumbling blocks are just stepping stones to success. It's our trouble that gives us traction to climb higher in our character and way of living.

Frequent Password Changes are Useless

2 komentar
Users hate them. They're a massive headache to network administrators. But IT departments often mandate them nonetheless: regularly scheduled password changes — part of a policy intended to increase computer security.

Now new research proves what you've probably suspected ever since your first pop-up announcing that your password has expired and you need to create a new one. This presumed security measure is little more than a big waste of time, the Boston Globe reports.

Microsoft undertook the study to gauge how effectively frequent password changes thwart cyberattacks, and found that the advice generally doesn't make much sense, since, as the study notes, someone who obtains your password will use it immediately, not sit on it for weeks until you have a chance to change it.

"That’s about as likely as a crook lifting a house key and then waiting until the lock is changed before sticking it in the door," the Globe says.

On the bright side, changing your password isn't harmful, either, unless you use overly short or obvious passwords or you're sloppy about how you remember them. (Many users forced to change their password too frequently resort to writing them on sticky notes attached to their monitor, about the worst possible computer security behavior you can undertake.)

Rather, frequent password changes are simply a waste of time and, therefore, money. According to the Microsoft researcher's very rough calculations: To be economically justifiable, each minute per day that computer users spend on changing passwords (or on any security measure) should yield $16 billion in annual savings from averted harm. No one can cite a real statistic on password changes' averted losses, but few would estimate it's anywhere approaching $16 billion a year.

Shepherd and Consultant

0 komentar
A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Prada suit, Gucci shoes, Dior sunglasses and D+G tie, leans out the window and asks the shepherd: "If I tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?"

The shepherd looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers: "Sure. Why not?"

The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it to his
AT&T cell phone, surfs to a NASA page on the internet, where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an exact fix on his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany. Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the data stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with hundreds of complex formulae. He uploads all of this data via an email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, receives a response. Finally, he prints out a full-colour, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturised HP LaserJet printer, turns to the shepherd and says: "You have exactly 1,586 sheep".

"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my sheep," says the shepherd. He watches the young man select one of the animals and looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the boot of his car. Then the shepherd says to the young man: "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my sheep?"
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says: "Okay, why not?"

"You're a consultant," says the shepherd. "Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie. "But how did you guess that?"

"No guessing required," answers the shepherd. "You showed up here even though nobody called you, you want to get paid for an answer that I already knew, to a question I never asked AND you know sod all about my business.

"Now give me back my sheep."
