Doing Technologies the Right Way

Again, technology will never be boring for discussion. Human progress on developing technology is rapidly fast. But, is that a right way? Technology thrives in various sectors but military seems become fastest sector related to technology. Nuclear, laser cannon, tanks, guns, etc. Almost all countries develop various weapons to create strongest military in whole world. Tough, in some cases technology still can not defeat nature. And basically human is technology, most complicated technology even no one can solve how human brain works. Can Stephen Hawking explain, what actually happen with brain while human is asleep? 
Mostly, technology gives more negatives than positives. Recent research from ELDI, or Economic of Land Degradation Initiative finds that earth is dying, truly dying now. And human is cause. Nuclear test, war, uncontrolled mining, etc. All those activities are using technology. Oil mining in middle of ocean. Simple example about human attitude; Avatar movie. That's perfect satire that human basically is a destroyer just to get what they want. Burn trees. Kill habitats inside. Now, human is exploring space to find something.

But human can do something for minimizing effect of technology, especially bad effect. But surely, in this modern era human can not live without technology, but what can human do is minimizing its usage. Technology is important but healthy environment is more important. Can you imagine that someday future generation ask about Bengal Tiger, but we can not show them because of  extinction? Tragic. So, doing technologies right way is more important.

This is just a reminder, how technologies can help and also destroy. But biggest mistake is if you are not reading this article. I mean, haha yea, this is just a feeling about technologies, because many things have changed almost in all parts of life because of technologies. Smartphones, computers, communications, transportation, etc. And I just noticed that there are no "the" in this article, except that one.

Ideas You Can Steal from K-Pop

This is funny. This is like fever. With all its glamour, K-Pop turns into a new trend in music style. It creates its own scene; but the big idea is the same: beautiful boys and girls. Ups, appealing boys and girls. Without a doubt, the K-Pop members are attractive. Some even are seductive. Thanks to the medical technology in Korea which is able to change someone into more attractive one. But, are we talk about this? Eermm..I think for several people, K-Pop is not interesting, but the fans, yes they are. But we don't have to be subjective, because at least there are some creative ideas in the industry, that you can steal from them and adopt them with your own styles.
umdasianamericanpopculture.wordpress.com
What ideas? You don't need to copy their styles, and I am sure that none of you want to copy their styles, except you are really huge fans of BigBang or Wondergirl. But in many ways, they are creative to get ideas and applied it in their songs, or their videos. In some cases, their television series are better than their music style. At least for me. They can get something deep in a simple theme, and develop that theme into complicated plot but easy to be followed. Am I their fans? Eerrmm...their girls, yes.
What do you think, eh? - www.edmdroid.com
You can start it with the abbreviation. If you get attention on K-Pop idol groups, most of them are using abbreviation for the group names. Are they? Okay, here is the example: 2NE1 (Can you spell this? two-en-i-one? Yea you are wrong! This reads as To Anyone. See?). Not only group name, the member names also often use the abbreviation. This may looks cool. See these; GD, T.O.P, or SOL. Do you think that those names are boyband names? Again you are wrong. They are the members of BigBang. And it may that K-Pop fans are having better memory than you, because they can remember so many abbreviation from many boybands and the members. So, why don't you start to make your own abbreviation?
Their dance also attracting
Then, you can choose your color. Each groups have their own color as their identity. This will help to distinguish one and another. If you watch K-Pop concert, you will see the fans bring light stick with one dominant color. So, if you are beginner K-Pop fans, learn first about your idol color, and pick the right light stick. Choose the good place in front of the stage. Ups, I am sorry, this start to be wild, ha ha. Okay, back to the color as identity. Like another music scene, such as black is identical with metal genre or something like that. Pink is identical with girlband, maybe. Magenta for this, cyan for that. etc. Have you chose?
Colorful. I am right about color, right? - bunow.com
Another interesting thing in K-Pop industry is the presence of 'leader' on a group. This leader usually be more popular than another. And if you take closer to a K-Pop concert, they will introduce their leader first, then another members. The last member join will be the last to be mentioned. This is interesting, and you can start to use this method when you want to be acquainted. You can say, "Hey, my name is J.ED (remember the abbreviation), and I am the leader in my class, bla bla bla....." People will give more attention of you. I think...
Stunning, eye cacthing, sexy, what else? - www.tumblr.com
Those are some ideas you can steal from K-Pop. It may work for you, or not. But without a doubt the K-Pop trends are super massive. Remember the Gangnam Style video on YouTube that reached million viewers, more than any videos from Hollywood superstars like Justin Bieber? Last but not least, you may also add a dance style as idea you can adopt from K-Pop. You can dance, right?

This point is about taste, and each people is different about taste, but a girl with shirt, jeans, sneakers with the straggling hair, walking in the sidewalk, or running in the meadow, can you imagine the better? Okay, let's say a girl with dress and high heels can attract men to look at her, but maybe she will panic if there are dust in their dress or skin.

5 Problems with Literature

Everyone loves literature. Imagine if the world without literature. How if Shakespeare was a dentist? Or Leo Tolstoy plays rope like Houdini? Or, can you imagine that J.K Rowling and Stephanie Meyer play tennis? It would be boring. So, let's say agree that literature gives our live more color, tastes, emotion, passion, anger, or imagination. But, I also agree that literature can't be enjoyed by all people, such as Octopus, as he said to Peter Parker that poetry is more complicated than scientific things. We have several problems here with literature, you are free to disagree. And here the list;

YOU CAN ATTRACT GIRLS WITH POETRY
Literature is wide. Novels, epic, or poetry are some kinds of literature. This is first problem related to literature. Girls mostly love to poetic words. When boys can compose poetic words spontaneous in front of girls, trust me they will fly. But, for some girls, poetic words indicate that a man is a player. So? You decide this.

LITERATURE = OLD

"O my Luve is like a red, red rose
   That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
   That’s sweetly played in tune.
...."
(A Red, Red Rose - Robert Burns)

Like or not, the fact is older language, almost all languages in this world is better than modern language. And it seems that modern people are feel difficult to arrange poetic words. Rhyme, metaphor, or something. It may only rap song that still have rhyme on the lyrics, but it does not have the poetic or beautiful things. It contains only violence, racism, or even sex and drugs. And it is weird how modern people are like to listening rap song than reading Beowulf.

LITERATURE IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOUNG PEOPLE
This point have relation with before. Rhyme or rhythm or metaphor etc. Young modern people - better we say teenagers - prefer to learn about technology. They want to be the next Steve Jobs, or Mark Zuckerberg. Just a few teenagers that want to be the next Shakespeare or Karl May. Even tough, literature is not as difficult as they think. But, that's the stereotype.

LITERATURE STUDENTS CAN BE SPECIAL PERSON
Actually this point have several sub-points. Why literature students are special person? First, language class is not as popular as scientific class or technology class. What can literature students do besides arranging words? Students who join scientific and technology class is building robot. So, a person that in literature class must be through the deep thinking before they decide that. In other words, literature students are deep thinker, love of something from the heart not only following trends. It is indicating that literature students are also good couple. Trust me.

Secondly, literature person is calm, easy going, but still serious. They will not give big attention about what they wear. As long as jeans, flanel shirt, sneakers are comfortable, they will wear it all of time. Never give big attention also about people's opinion about their clothes. And they are serious people! For you scientific students, can you explain what William Butler Yeats means on his poetry "The Song of Wandering Aengus?" Never heard about word "aengus" before? Poor you. 

Third, literature students are flexible. I mean, they can be author, writer, journalist, or even tour guides. They can be many things in the future after they are graduate. Marketing? That's not too difficult for literature students. With the language ability, they can attract new customers. So??

I still have some for this point but I will save it for later.

WORDS ARE DANGEROUS WEAPON
If you read or watch "Game of Thrones", you will find a character named Tyrion Lannister, a hobbit - not real hobbit, you know what I mean. Small but have sharp tongue. Words are deadliest weapon. If you learn about history of the world, most of great war were happen just because the conspiracy from the inside of the kingdom. Conspiracy is using only the words. 

Nah, those are five problems with literature. If you think that the word "problems" means negative word, maybe you are scientific or technology students. In fact, literature-students can see that certain words can be both negative and positive meaning.

How to be Unpopular in the Travel World

Travelling is now become a very popular among people. Even this activity turns into a new trend, and almost turns to be a lifestyle. Backpacker, or something, comes as the branch of travelling. Is the traveling activity is such important for modern people? Or just an escape for the very busy time or working time, so certain people needs to go to somewhere to forget their work for a while? As this lifestyle is growing, some of you maybe become popular in this travel world. But, I know that certain people still want to be unpopular in many scenes, including the travel world. Then, how to be unpopular in the travel world?
How to be unpopular? It's easy, especially for them who have bad experience in high school. High school is not like what people think. This is a place that almost similar like Masai Mara in Africa; there is no place for the weak. Bullying, fighting, conflict, conspiracy, are the familiar things among high school students, especially senior high school students. In certain countries, the bullying is even more worst. Just small example, in Japan, September 1st is the first day of school activity, and commonly, we will happy for that. But, for certain people, that day is a nightmare. And in Japan, many students commit suicide at that day, September 1st. Why? Because you are unpopular and become easy target to be bullied.
In travel world, frightening experiences are too much. In the land of mountain, a place that located in Hindia Ocean, where mountain is spread in almost all the islands, too many bad experiences there. Lost in the deep forest, or fall down in the valley, or something else, are like breakfast. Not only for walking travelers, or backpackers but also travelers with vehicles. This can be factor why traveling for some reasons are dangerous. But, human always challenge their limit and like for facing the dangerous.
The word "travel" (is a verb) based on Oxford Dictionary means (1) to go from one place to another, especially over a long distance, or (2) to go or move at a particular speed, in a particular direction, or a particular distance, etc. So, here, travels or travelling activity is about mobility, move from certain place to another place. And it can be said that the travelling activity is a physical activity. But, think spiritual aspect, bro.

Read also: Who Really Uses Technologies?

Most of modern people think that spiritual is same as religion. That's why they don't want to think about that, moreover talk about that. Religion is private. Sure, I agree of that statement. But when we talk about spiritual, it's not a religion anyway. Again, I quote this from Oxford Dictionary, that spiritual means "Relating to or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things." While the word religion means "The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods."
Human have conflict inside their soul, mostly in certain ages. When a children slowly turns into teenager, the mind and the point of view about many things will also growing, not only in visible things but also invisible things. Invisible doesn't mean nothing. Many invisible things out there but they are exist. Right?

So, maybe I will say that travel activity here will be a process to the maturity. Human will pass four levels related to their spiritual process. First, when human beings are born. Second, a time before human get married. Third is when they become parents. And the last, a time before they pass away. Can you feel a conflict inside you head and heart? That's the process. Then, what do you do? Heart never lies, but most human just keep silence. Listen to your heart.
