TREE GORILLA

A man walked into his back yard one morning and found a gorilla in a tree. He called a gorilla-removal service, and soon serviceman arrived with a stick, a cihuahua (a rabbit-size breed of dog), a pair of handcuffs, and a shootgun. “now listen carefully,” he told the homeowner.” I’m going to climb the tree and poke the gorilla with this stick until he falls to the ground. The trained cihuahua will then go right for his,
uh, sensitive area, and when the gorilla instinctively crosses his hands in front to protect himself, you slap on the handcuffs.”
“got it,” the homeowner replied. “But what’s the shootgun for?”

“if I fall out of the tree before the gorilla,” the man said,” shoot the cihuahua.”

One day Abu Ali went to the fair, and bought nine donkeys. He rode home on one of them the rest of the donkeys followed behind.

After a while Abu Ali said to himself, “I must make sure all my donkeys are here.” And he turned round to count them.

“One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Oh! Where’s number nine?” Abu Ali cried
He jumped down from his donkey. He looked behind the rocks and behind the trees. But there was no donkey to be seen.

“I’ll count them again,” Abu Ali said. “One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine. Oh, he must have come back.”

So Abu Ali climbed back on to the donkey and trotted away. After a while he counted his donkeys again. He counted only eight! Once more he looked behind the rocks and behind the trees. But there was no donkey to be seen.

“I will count again,” he said, and this time there were nine.

Just then Abu Ali saw his friend Musa walking along the road.
“Musa,” he called. “Help me to count my donkeys. I keep losing one. When I stop to count I have only eight, but when I get down looking for the ninth, there he is again!”

“Well, I can see ten donkeys, Abu Ali,” laughed Musa. “And the tenth donkey’s name is Abu Ali”

MAN: "Yes"

WOMAN: "I'm at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"

MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."

WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2007
models. I saw one I really liked."

MAN: "How much?"

WOMAN: "$80,000."

MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing. The house we wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $950,000."

MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer, but just offer $900,000."

WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you!"

Tetap Sehat Meski Cuaca tak Bersahabat

Written on 00.51 by Viny Alfiyah



Labil. Itulah pendapat penulis untuk menggambarkan keadaan cuaca akhir-akhir ini dimana tiap sebentar-sebentar turun hujan, tunggu sekitar 5 menit kemudian hujan akan berhenti, lalu 15-20 menit kemudian turun lagi hujan yang cukup deras.


Keadaan cuaca seperti ini, membuat kita merasa nyaman dibawah selimut dan berlama-lama di kasur serta membuat kita berlambat-lambat pergi ke sekolah. Apalagi hampir setiap pagi dihiasi mendungnya awan kelabu dengan suhu yang relatif cukup dingin untuk ukuran orang Asia Tenggara, khususnya orang Indonesia yang terbiasa dengan suhu sekitar 34 derajat Celsius.


Kedinginan dapat diatasi dengan mengenakan pakaian atau jaket yang tebal dan hangat namun tetap cukup ringan agar membuat kita tetap leluasa beraktivitas. Namun sebenarnya bukanlah rasa dingin yang menjadi ancaman terbesar bagi tubuh kita, tetapi keadaan cuaca yang sering berubah-ubahlah yang menjadi ancaman utama bagi kesehatan kita. Cuaca yang labil membuat sistem daya tahan tubuh kita melemah sehingga rentan sakit. Apalagi jika sekolah sobat belia sedang mengadakan acara besar seperti Bulan Prestasi, Expo, ataupun Gelar/Pentas Seni yang pastinya sangat menguras tenaga, mental, dan pikiran siswa, terutama bagi siswa yang menjadi pengurus OSIS & MPK.


Oleh karena itu usahakan untuk menjaga stamina dan kesehatan sobat belia, seperti dengan menjaga asupan nutrisi dan air untuk tubuh kita, waktu tidur yang cukup, mengenakan pakaian hangat, usahakan untuk tidak kehujanan saat di luar, selalu membawa mantel/jas hujan jika bepergian menggunakan sepeda motor, usahakan untuk menyempatkan diri untuk berolahraga meski di dalam ruangan, serta selalu berdoa pada Allah SWT agar selalu diberkahi kesehatan.


Sekalipun sobat belia terlanjur sakit, istirahatlah yang cukup di rumah, jangan terlalu dipaksakan untuk masuk ke sekolah, nanti salah-salah malah karugrag alias kambuh lagi penyakitnya. Jadi sobat belia jaga kesehatan ya di cuaca yang labil ini, tetap semangat meski kadang-kadang cuaca tidak bersahabat!!!

PLUS MINUS SNMPTN Undangan dan Tulis

Written on 04.21 by Viny Alfiyah




Di tengah asyiknya melihat acara Fox Crime dan NGC, ada diskusi yang lebih tepat disebut ‘ngobrol ngalor-ngidul’ selama 7 menit bersama kakak ipar saya saat liburan semester 1. Di kesempatan itu saya bertanya apa bedanya SNMPTN Tulis dan Undangan, berhubung mulai tahun 2013 SNMPTN Tulis tidak dilaksanakan penulis ingin mengulas sedikit mengenai Plus Minus SNMPTN Undangan dan Tulis. Bukan maksud sok tahu tapi beginilah info yang saya dapatkan.
Seleksi Nasional Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri (SNMPTN) ini dibagi menjadi 2 jalur, terdapat SNMPTN Undangan dan SNMPTN Tulis, pertama mari kita bahas terlebih dahulu mengenai SNMPTN Undangan.

SNMPTN Undangan


SNMPTN jalur Undangan ini dilihat dari nilai rapor semester 3-5 (semester 1 kelas XI – semester 1 kelas XII) harus progresif, yang artinya setiap semester, nilai-nilai mata pelajaran (terutama Matematika, Fisika, Kimia, Biologi, B.Indonesia, B.Inggris) harus naik, tidak boleh turun, minimal konstan/tetap. Biasanya juga dilihat dari urutan ranking kelas (akan lebih bagus lagi jika kita berada di urutan top ten atau top three).
Plus:

Terjadi pemerataan pelajar
Pelajar dari daerah mendapat kesempatan dan celah untuk kuliah di PTN favorit yang rata-rata berada di kota besar. Contoh: ITB (Bandung), UI (Jakarta), UGM (Yogyakarta).

Minus:

Menghambat siswa yang memiliki kemampuan yang tinggi

Rank kelas, menurut penulis adalah hal yang bersifat subjektif. Mengapa? Karena itu sangat dipengaruhi berbagai hal, seperti akreditasi sekolah, guru pengajar, lingkungan, dan kemampuan siswa itu sendiri. Jika Anda belum mengerti, mari penulis jelaskan. Misalnya di suatu SMA Abjad yang memiliki akreditasi A (Amat Baik) terdapat kelas X, W, Y, dan Z. Nah, siswa penghuni kelas Z adalah siswa yang memiliki kemampuan di atas rata-rata, satu level lebih tinggi dari siswa dari kelas W dan Y. Sedangkan para siswa kelas X ini dinilai kurang dibanding dengan kelas W, Y, dan Z. Pada saat akhir semester diumumkanlah para top three dari masing-masing kelas.


Dari kelas Z : Jati (1), Rina (2), dan Toni (3)

Dari kelas Y : Andin (1), Yudith (2), Sandi (3)

Dari kelas W : Novi (1), Sela (2), Musa (3)

Dari kelas X : Sarjang (1), Nani (2), Wati (3)


Nah, jika dilihat dari sudut pandang SNMPTN Undangan, Jati, Andin, Novi, dan Sarjang adalah setara, tetapi jika dilihat dari kemampuan hasilnya dapat berbeda. Tetapi hasilnya akan berbeda jika mereka mengikuti SNMPTN Tulis.


Sekarang mari kita bahas tentang SNMPTN Tulis


Plus


Biaya lebih murah karena mendapat subsidi dari pemerintah
Soal tidak pernah bocor
Berbeda sekali dengan UN (SNMPTN Tulis = soal banyak, waktu sedikit)(UN = soal tidak terlalu banyak, waktu melimpah)
Tingkat kecurangan yang sangat minim (inget, soal dibuat oleh para Rektor dari berbagai PT di seluruh Indonesia)
Benar-benar merupakan uji kemampuan diri

Minus


Kurangnya pemerataan pelajar, siswa dari pelosok daerah dengan fasilitas minim sulit bersaing dengan siswa dari daerah yang memiliki sekolah dengan fasilitas lengkap.
Siswa dari pelosok daerah juga sulit untuk dapat menerima pendidikan serta pengajaran yang dicita-citakan.

Sekarang, SNMPTN Undangan kuotanya jadi 100%, nanti nantinya pihak PTN akan mengadakan UMBPTN (Ujian Masuk Bersama Perguruan Tinggi Negeri) kepada 40% siswa (mengenai siswa dengan kriteria apa saja yang harus mengikuti UMBPTN ini aku juga kurang tau tapi feeling-ku sih 40% itu adalah siswa dengan nilai terendah dari kuota 100% itu).


Tapi bagiku pribadi, lebih baik SNMPTN Tulis kuotanya menjadi 100%, jika aku tidak lulus, lebih baik nganggur 1 taun buat persiapan yang lebih mantep jadi nanti biar gampang juga ngikutin kelas pas kuliahnya, syukur-syukur dapet beasiswa ke luar negeri dengan beasiswa yang full.


Setelah membaca post ini saya harap Anda meninggalkan komentar, entah Anda setuju atau tidak, atau menambahkan informasi lain pada saya. Terima kasih.

Museum Prestasi SMANSA

Written on 01.24 by Viny Alfiyah

Trofi dan plakat dari berbagai ukuran dan bentuk memenuhi ruang lobby SMA N 1 Kota Sukabumi. Entah berapa banyak gelar yang telah diraih para siswa The Leading School ini dari bidang akademik maupun non-akademik.



Karena banyaknya trofi, plakat, serta berbagai penghargaan lainnya tidak memperoleh tempat di lobi maka timbul berita yang mengabarkan bahwa akan dibangun sebuah museum yang khusus dibangun untuk memajang berbagai penghargaan yang telah diraih oleh para warga SMANSA. Tetapi kabar itu pun perlahan mulai mengabur dan seperti kabut di pagi hari yang sirna diterpa cahaya mentari.



Namun, pada 12 Desember 2013 lalu, penulis melihat 2 buah gambar bangunan modern yang diupload oleh Bapak Ujang Kosasih yang merupakan salah satu staf pengajar di SMA N 1 Sukabumi di grup jejaring sosial Facebook yang bernama KELUARGA BESAR SMA NEGERI 1 (SMANSA) KOTA SUKABUMI. Dalam keterangan gambar, diketahui bahwa bangun tersebut merupakan gambar rancangan Museum Prestasi SMANSA hasil karya para alumnus SMANSA menjelang perayaan Golden Year SMANSA. Satu gambar menampilkan rancangan wajah depan Museum Prestasi yang akan dibangun kelak. Gambar lainnya menunjukkan interior bagian dalam museum.







Rancangan wajah depan serta interior dalamnya telah ada, namun kapankah Museum Prestasi SMANSA tersebut dapat direalisasikan?

Dave found a nice office. He bought some new furniture and moved in. he had only been there for e few hours when he heard someone coming toward the door of his office.

“It must be my first customer” Dave thought. He quickly picked up the telephone and pretended to be very busy answering an important call from someone in New York who wanted to buy a big and expensive house in the country.

The man knocked at the door while this was going on. He came in and waited politely for Dave to finish his conversation on the phone.

Then the man said to Dave; “I am from the telephone company and I was sent here to connect your telephone”

A man joined a big Multi National Company as a trainee. On his first day he dialed the pantry and shouted into the phone, "Get me a coffee quickly!"

The voice from the other side responded, "You fool you've dialed the wrong extension! Do you know who you're talking to, dumbo?"

No", replied the trainee.

"It's the Managing Director of the company, you fool!" The man shouted back, "And do you know who YOU are talking to, you fool?"

"No", replied the Managing Director.
"Thats Good!", replied the trainee and put down the phone!

Tetap Sehat Meski Cuaca tak Bersahabat



Labil. Itulah pendapat penulis untuk menggambarkan keadaan cuaca akhir-akhir ini dimana tiap sebentar-sebentar turun hujan, tunggu sekitar 5 menit kemudian hujan akan berhenti, lalu 15-20 menit kemudian turun lagi hujan yang cukup deras.


Keadaan cuaca seperti ini, membuat kita merasa nyaman dibawah selimut dan berlama-lama di kasur serta membuat kita berlambat-lambat pergi ke sekolah. Apalagi hampir setiap pagi dihiasi mendungnya awan kelabu dengan suhu yang relatif cukup dingin untuk ukuran orang Asia Tenggara, khususnya orang Indonesia yang terbiasa dengan suhu sekitar 34 derajat Celsius.


Kedinginan dapat diatasi dengan mengenakan pakaian atau jaket yang tebal dan hangat namun tetap cukup ringan agar membuat kita tetap leluasa beraktivitas. Namun sebenarnya bukanlah rasa dingin yang menjadi ancaman terbesar bagi tubuh kita, tetapi keadaan cuaca yang sering berubah-ubahlah yang menjadi ancaman utama bagi kesehatan kita. Cuaca yang labil membuat sistem daya tahan tubuh kita melemah sehingga rentan sakit. Apalagi jika sekolah sobat belia sedang mengadakan acara besar seperti Bulan Prestasi, Expo, ataupun Gelar/Pentas Seni yang pastinya sangat menguras tenaga, mental, dan pikiran siswa, terutama bagi siswa yang menjadi pengurus OSIS & MPK.


Oleh karena itu usahakan untuk menjaga stamina dan kesehatan sobat belia, seperti dengan menjaga asupan nutrisi dan air untuk tubuh kita, waktu tidur yang cukup, mengenakan pakaian hangat, usahakan untuk tidak kehujanan saat di luar, selalu membawa mantel/jas hujan jika bepergian menggunakan sepeda motor, usahakan untuk menyempatkan diri untuk berolahraga meski di dalam ruangan, serta selalu berdoa pada Allah SWT agar selalu diberkahi kesehatan.


Sekalipun sobat belia terlanjur sakit, istirahatlah yang cukup di rumah, jangan terlalu dipaksakan untuk masuk ke sekolah, nanti salah-salah malah karugrag alias kambuh lagi penyakitnya. Jadi sobat belia jaga kesehatan ya di cuaca yang labil ini, tetap semangat meski kadang-kadang cuaca tidak bersahabat!!!

PLUS MINUS SNMPTN Undangan dan Tulis




Di tengah asyiknya melihat acara Fox Crime dan NGC, ada diskusi yang lebih tepat disebut ‘ngobrol ngalor-ngidul’ selama 7 menit bersama kakak ipar saya saat liburan semester 1. Di kesempatan itu saya bertanya apa bedanya SNMPTN Tulis dan Undangan, berhubung mulai tahun 2013 SNMPTN Tulis tidak dilaksanakan penulis ingin mengulas sedikit mengenai Plus Minus SNMPTN Undangan dan Tulis. Bukan maksud sok tahu tapi beginilah info yang saya dapatkan.
Seleksi Nasional Masuk Perguruan Tinggi Negeri (SNMPTN) ini dibagi menjadi 2 jalur, terdapat SNMPTN Undangan dan SNMPTN Tulis, pertama mari kita bahas terlebih dahulu mengenai SNMPTN Undangan.

SNMPTN Undangan


SNMPTN jalur Undangan ini dilihat dari nilai rapor semester 3-5 (semester 1 kelas XI – semester 1 kelas XII) harus progresif, yang artinya setiap semester, nilai-nilai mata pelajaran (terutama Matematika, Fisika, Kimia, Biologi, B.Indonesia, B.Inggris) harus naik, tidak boleh turun, minimal konstan/tetap. Biasanya juga dilihat dari urutan ranking kelas (akan lebih bagus lagi jika kita berada di urutan top ten atau top three).
Plus:

Terjadi pemerataan pelajar
Pelajar dari daerah mendapat kesempatan dan celah untuk kuliah di PTN favorit yang rata-rata berada di kota besar. Contoh: ITB (Bandung), UI (Jakarta), UGM (Yogyakarta).

Minus:

Menghambat siswa yang memiliki kemampuan yang tinggi

Rank kelas, menurut penulis adalah hal yang bersifat subjektif. Mengapa? Karena itu sangat dipengaruhi berbagai hal, seperti akreditasi sekolah, guru pengajar, lingkungan, dan kemampuan siswa itu sendiri. Jika Anda belum mengerti, mari penulis jelaskan. Misalnya di suatu SMA Abjad yang memiliki akreditasi A (Amat Baik) terdapat kelas X, W, Y, dan Z. Nah, siswa penghuni kelas Z adalah siswa yang memiliki kemampuan di atas rata-rata, satu level lebih tinggi dari siswa dari kelas W dan Y. Sedangkan para siswa kelas X ini dinilai kurang dibanding dengan kelas W, Y, dan Z. Pada saat akhir semester diumumkanlah para top three dari masing-masing kelas.


Dari kelas Z : Jati (1), Rina (2), dan Toni (3)

Dari kelas Y : Andin (1), Yudith (2), Sandi (3)

Dari kelas W : Novi (1), Sela (2), Musa (3)

Dari kelas X : Sarjang (1), Nani (2), Wati (3)


Nah, jika dilihat dari sudut pandang SNMPTN Undangan, Jati, Andin, Novi, dan Sarjang adalah setara, tetapi jika dilihat dari kemampuan hasilnya dapat berbeda. Tetapi hasilnya akan berbeda jika mereka mengikuti SNMPTN Tulis.


Sekarang mari kita bahas tentang SNMPTN Tulis


Plus


Biaya lebih murah karena mendapat subsidi dari pemerintah
Soal tidak pernah bocor
Berbeda sekali dengan UN (SNMPTN Tulis = soal banyak, waktu sedikit)(UN = soal tidak terlalu banyak, waktu melimpah)
Tingkat kecurangan yang sangat minim (inget, soal dibuat oleh para Rektor dari berbagai PT di seluruh Indonesia)
Benar-benar merupakan uji kemampuan diri

Minus


Kurangnya pemerataan pelajar, siswa dari pelosok daerah dengan fasilitas minim sulit bersaing dengan siswa dari daerah yang memiliki sekolah dengan fasilitas lengkap.
Siswa dari pelosok daerah juga sulit untuk dapat menerima pendidikan serta pengajaran yang dicita-citakan.

Sekarang, SNMPTN Undangan kuotanya jadi 100%, nanti nantinya pihak PTN akan mengadakan UMBPTN (Ujian Masuk Bersama Perguruan Tinggi Negeri) kepada 40% siswa (mengenai siswa dengan kriteria apa saja yang harus mengikuti UMBPTN ini aku juga kurang tau tapi feeling-ku sih 40% itu adalah siswa dengan nilai terendah dari kuota 100% itu).


Tapi bagiku pribadi, lebih baik SNMPTN Tulis kuotanya menjadi 100%, jika aku tidak lulus, lebih baik nganggur 1 taun buat persiapan yang lebih mantep jadi nanti biar gampang juga ngikutin kelas pas kuliahnya, syukur-syukur dapet beasiswa ke luar negeri dengan beasiswa yang full.


Setelah membaca post ini saya harap Anda meninggalkan komentar, entah Anda setuju atau tidak, atau menambahkan informasi lain pada saya. Terima kasih.

Museum Prestasi SMANSA

Trofi dan plakat dari berbagai ukuran dan bentuk memenuhi ruang lobby SMA N 1 Kota Sukabumi. Entah berapa banyak gelar yang telah diraih para siswa The Leading School ini dari bidang akademik maupun non-akademik.



Karena banyaknya trofi, plakat, serta berbagai penghargaan lainnya tidak memperoleh tempat di lobi maka timbul berita yang mengabarkan bahwa akan dibangun sebuah museum yang khusus dibangun untuk memajang berbagai penghargaan yang telah diraih oleh para warga SMANSA. Tetapi kabar itu pun perlahan mulai mengabur dan seperti kabut di pagi hari yang sirna diterpa cahaya mentari.



Namun, pada 12 Desember 2013 lalu, penulis melihat 2 buah gambar bangunan modern yang diupload oleh Bapak Ujang Kosasih yang merupakan salah satu staf pengajar di SMA N 1 Sukabumi di grup jejaring sosial Facebook yang bernama KELUARGA BESAR SMA NEGERI 1 (SMANSA) KOTA SUKABUMI. Dalam keterangan gambar, diketahui bahwa bangun tersebut merupakan gambar rancangan Museum Prestasi SMANSA hasil karya para alumnus SMANSA menjelang perayaan Golden Year SMANSA. Satu gambar menampilkan rancangan wajah depan Museum Prestasi yang akan dibangun kelak. Gambar lainnya menunjukkan interior bagian dalam museum.







Rancangan wajah depan serta interior dalamnya telah ada, namun kapankah Museum Prestasi SMANSA tersebut dapat direalisasikan?
