“What is the most creative innovation? Why?”

For me, the most creative innovation is Internet. Internet is the global system of interconnected computer networks to serve billions of users worldwide. Many people already used this system. Internet also already innovated to many other system, like Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi). In internet, we can browse anything that hardly to found and also we can share any information into this system. In Marketing, Internet also being a vital aspect to gain more customers because many people already know and use this system. I think there is nothing can compare with Internet. Still need a reason why Internet is the most creative innovation for me? Reread the first sentences from this paragraph.

Akhir-akhir ini banyak pemberitaan tentang film karya Sam Bacile yang berjudul Innocence of Muslim yang dikatakan telah mengejek-ngejek Muhammad SAW. Saya seorang muslim – SAYA SEORANG MUSLIM – Setelah saya menonton beberapa trailer dari film tersebut dan melihat dari berbagai kenyataan, saya melihat bahwa masih banyak dari kita yang tidak menggunakan akal sehat dalam berpikir dan semena-mena mengikuti arus saja.

Tentunya masih terekam dengan jelas kejadian 9/11 yang telah menewaskan kurang lebih 3000 warga Amerika pada tahun 2011 silam. Dan tentunya masih terekam dengan jelas juga diingatan kita tentang peristiwa International Burn Koran Day pada tanggal yang sama, 9/11 tahun 2010 yang diinisasikan oleh seorang pastor ekstrimis bernama Terry Jones. Gambar diatas sebenarnya sangatlah “menyentil” saya, karena saya merupakan satu dari sekian juta orang yang berpikiran demikian. Ketika adanya aksi terroris yang mengatasnamakan agama Islam dan telah menghilangkan banyak nyawa, kerap kali kita mengatakan bahwa “Tidak semua muslim begitu, tidak semua muslim terroris”. Tetapi kita kita diberikan cobaan berupa ancaman membakar kitab Al-Quran oleh pastor Terry Jones, “DEATH TO AMERICA!”. Lalu pertanyaannya adalah, apakah 19 orang terrorist itu merupakan representative umat muslim secara keseluruhan? Jawabannya tentu TIDAK. Dan apakah 1 orang pastor ekstrimis itu juga merupakan representative seluruh America yang berjumlah kurang lebih 316.5 juta penduduk? jawabannya tentu TIDAK.

Kerap kali kita sering menilai beberapa hal dari apa yang kita dengar – APA YANG KITA DENGAR – bukan dari apa yang kita pelajari, telaah maupun mengerti. Kembali ke Innocence of Muslim. Sejujurnya, saya juga cukup geram dengan perbuatan Sam Bacile yang merupakan script-writer, producer dan juga sutradara dari film tersebut. Tapi apakah dengan melakukan aksi “bunuh-bunuhan” warga Amerika serta “bakar-bakaran” bendera Amerika kegeraman saya itu akan hilang? Tentu saja tidak, BODOH. Hal tersebut malah akan memicu aksi ekstrimis dari warga Amerika lainnya yang merasa negaranya telah diinjak-injak. Dan jika warga Amerika melakukan aksi esktrimis lagi, pastinya akan ada dari pihak muslim yang akan membalasnya. Kejadiannya akan terus seperti itu sampai “Saat itu tiba“. Perlu digaris bawahi, seorang Nakoula Basseley Nakoula a.k.a Sam Bacile merupakan seorang Coptic Christian yang juga seorang narapidana yang baru saja dikeluarkan dari penjara pada bulan juni tahun 2011 silam dan baru dikeluarkan dari Halfway House beberapa minggu sebelum film Innocence of Muslim dibuat.

Sebenarnya saya tidak suka menorehkan banyak tulisan yang hanya timbul dari pemikiran saya saja. Saya harap tulisan ini bukan menjadi titik akhir kita dalam berpikir dan mencari jawaban, melainkan menjadi titik awal kita dalam mencari titik akhir tersebut yang tentunya dilandasi dengan pola pikir yang lebih baik dari sebelumnya. Akhir kata, semoga damai akan senantiasa meliputi bumi ini dan juga dalam bertoleransi dalam beragama. Karena dalam kedua belah agama pun telah terdapat unsur toleransi tersebut (kebetulan saya memiliki kedua kitab tersebut). Dimana disebutkan di:

  • Al-Quran, dapat dilihat di surah Al Kafirun : 6 yang berbunyi “Bagi kamu agamamu dan bagiku agamaku.”

  • Bible New Testament, dapat dilihat di Efesus 4 : 32 yang berbunyi “Tetapi hendaklah kamu ramah seorang terhadap yang lain, penuh kasih mesra dan saling mengampuni, sebagai mana Allah didalam kristus telah mengampuni kamu”

“What is the most creative company? Why?”

Many people usually answer Apple or Google that will be the most creative company in the world. Yes, that is true. They are the most creative company in the world, in technology bases. But for me, the most creative company in the world will be Walt Disney

As we know, Walt Disney is a company that known as the leader in the American animation Industry before their expanded their company into film production, television, amusement park and others. Then, why i choose Walt Disney as the most creative company of mine? Related to my latest post “Creative Figures“, the reason why i choose this company because they can make us to enter their fantasy imaginary world. What would the world be if there is no Walt Disney? What would be your childhood dreams if there is no Mickey Mouse and others? Everything will feel flat. There is also possibility that Walt Disney is the role model of any creative company nowadays because this company had been established on October 16, 1923. Maybe i cant build my own Walt Disney like Walt and Roy Disney, but i will make something else that will be useful then spreading the happiness and goodness to the world.

Two days ago, me and my friends went to some Mall in Bandung to have some fun. After a several time we surround that mall, i found interesting thing in its cinema and that its Chernobyl Diaries. As i know the story about Chernobyl before, so i’m freaking excited about that film! I’m a kind of person who easily excited about something horror and included mystery inside. Maybe if you don’t know the story, you will figure out “what is the interesting thing in that poster?”. Well, here i give you some of the interesting stories about Chernobyl:

The Chernobyl Power Plant located outside the town of Pripyat, Ukraine (11 miles from the city of Chernobyl) began construction in the 1970s with the first reactor. Over the next few years three more reactors were added and two more were in the middle of construction at the time of the disaster. On April 26, 1986 at 1:23 a.m., the no. 4 reactor was shut down for maintenance. An experiment was being performed to test a safety emergency core cooling feature during the shut down procedure. It’s uncertain as to what exact processes led to the explosions but a disruption in regulation seem to be a part of it.

The first explosion was that of steam. Steam from the wrecked channels entered the reactor inner space that caused the destruction of the reactor casing, tearing off and lifting by the force of 2,000 tons the upper plate. This ruptured further fuel channels, the reactor core suffered total water loss and a high positive void coefficient could entirely appear.The second explosions occurred seconds after the first. Some theorized the second explosion was caused by the hydrogen which had been produced either by the overheated steam-zirconium reaction or by the reaction of red-hot graphite with steam that produce hydrogen and oxygen. Others believed it was more nuclear or a thermal explosion of the reactor as a result of the uncontrollable escape of fast neutrons, caused by the complete water loss in the reactor core. Either way it was considered the worst nuclear power plant disaster in history. The fallout released was four times more than the atomic bombing of Hiroshima.

The explosions caused a chain reaction. The fire in Reactor 4 burned until May 10th, 1986 before it was finally extinguished thanks to Helicopters dropping sand and lead as well as injecting liquid nitrogen in to it. Radioactive particles were released in to the air. Smoke and wind carried it in to the nearby town as well as across international borders. Most of the radioactive fallout landed in Belarus. Light nuclear rain fell as far as Ireland. Over 336,000 people were evacuated. 600,000 people were exposed to radiation. Two people died in the initial steam explosion, but fifty-six people (47 accident workers and 9 children with thyroid cancer) directly died due to the disaster. There were as many as 4,000 cancer related deaths from those exposed to radiation. The nearby pine forest turned ginger brown and died earning the name “Red Forest”. Horses left behind during the evacuation died due to destroyed thyroid glands. Some cattle also died but of those that survived, suffered stunted growth due to thyroid damage. Wild animals in the worst-hit areas either died or stopped reproducing.

After the disaster, all work on reactors 5 and 6 halted. Reactor 4 was sealed off with 660ft of concrete placed between the disaster site and operational buildings. A fire broke out in the turbine building of reactor 2 in 1991. It was declared beyond repair and shut down. Reactor 1 was decommissioned in November 1996 as part of a deal between the Ukrainian government and international organizations such as the IAEA. Then-President Leonid Kuchma personally turned off Reactor 3 in an official ceremony on December 15, 2000, shutting down the plant entirely.

The accident led to alleged governmental cover-ups and ghost towns. Pripyat has become somewhat a wildlife reserve. Most of those who were evacuated never came back. About 400 people were allowed to resettle in the Excursion Zone as along as they never request money or aid if they become ill. Since 2002, tours are provided for all those who want to see the infamous site.

Is the Chernobyl Power Plant haunted? Josh Gates and the Destination Truth team investigated the area and will determine whether or not eyewitness claims are true.

Some believe aliens were involved with the disaster. Witnesses claimed to have seen a UFO hovering above the plant for six hours during the accident. Three years later, a Doctor Gospina stated he saw an “amber-like” object above the plant. A year after that, a reporter photographed an object similar to the one Gospina described hovering above the disaster site.

A creature known as the Black Bird of Chernobyl was also sighted days leading up to the disaster. It is described as a large black, bird like creature or a headless man with a 20 foot wingspan, and red eyes. It has been compared to that of the Mothman in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. This creature has not been seen since the disaster. People experienced horrific nightmares, threatening phone calls and first-hand encounters with the winged-beast. Did they really see an unknown creature or was it something out of nature such as the black stork? We may never know.

The Pripyat, the Chernobyl worker town, is believed to be haunted. People have had the feeling of being watched when walking past the city hospital. Considering it looks like the aftermath of an apocalypse, that feeling may be anything but supernatural. Apparitions and shadows are often seen. Some have even reported being touched. But could the spirits of its victims be roaming the affected areas?

Chernobyl accident is one of the worst disaster on earth. Based on that stories, Chernobyl is a nuclear disaster created by human error. What make Chernobyl stories became famous? Because one of the best game ever, Resident Evil created based on that disaster.

Chernobyl diaries is one particular most hoped for 2012 horror shows. From the leader of Paranormal Activity, Oren Peli is certainly heading us to fear with his new Chernobyl diaries. Specifically, this film will explains about several vacationers that are generally advised by a outrageous person to the center of Pripyat and see them noticed by several unknown things, like Black Bird. If you believe there will be a zombie apocalypse, then i believe that Chernobyl will be the place where it would begin

You are Purple Panther who shows flexibility to new ideas and new things.
Even if you get much older, you will possess youthful ideals and beliefs, and will keep on challenging energetically.
You can be friendly with anyone, but are not very good at expressing yourself.
You don’t know how to express your feelings properly.
So the way you talk tend to be rather abrupt, and gives an impression of being intrusive.
But, really, you want to try and understand each another by conversation.
You act according to your sense and inspiration.
You think you are very theoretical and reasonable, but those around you do not think so.
If you work under a boss who is narrow-minded, you will be realized as a very capricious person, and your strong points will be difficult to be drawn out.
You are very quick witted person, and can handle situation with smartness and flexibility.
But this dexterity may be seen as a person who is affable to everybody and anybody.
You possess unlimited possibility for your future dreams.
You will not give up something that you have started, and have a strong will power.
You would be successful if you believe in your foresight, and start your own business, rather than work as a member of an organization.

“Why do we need to be creative?”

In my opinion, being creative is very important. Not only for solving a problem with an effective way, but also in unusual way. Creative people in general do something out of the box. They can make their idea more brilliant and impress the others with unusual thinking. From what i see, creative people can look very easy and tend to forget their duty. But when they are required to do something, they can be very responsible and discipline with it.

Besides that, creative people often looks like a strange even crazy people. Why? Because they always thinking what happen in their imagination or fantasy could be happen in real world too. That’s why creative people always look eccentric with everything. Creative people also will be both introvert and extrovert. They can be very introvert when they are seriously thinking about what will they do and how to grow their idea of thinking then keep it by himself. But they will be very extrovert when they express their feeling or their idea of thinking.

From what i said before, being creative people is very important because;

  • We always faced a problem in our life. Usually, when life doesn’t give us some option to solve our problem, we must make our own option. And for being creative people, we can create our creative idea to solve our problem that we had encounter. “When life gives you lemon, made lemonade
  • Creative people never give up because they always come with an creative solution while they faces their own problem in life.
  • In business, competition is a must. We have to face same products that we are selling. With a creative thinking, we can added some value in our products that will make us stay ahead than the others.

Who is the most creative figures? Why?”

Everyone could be a creative figures. But for me, my creative figures is Eiichiro Oda. Not everyone know him, but maybe everyone know about his manga, One Piece.

From many creative figures like Madonna, Steve Jobs, Moose and others, i choose Eiichiro Oda because i respect him. He can share his imagination and fantasy to all of us while we could enter his imagination either. From what i read, One Piece plot is very creative. Their side character will come in the future plot too. Not like other manga that not represented their side character in the future plot. Besides that, what make me respect him too is every name that he use in his manga had their own meanings and some of them based on facts. I wont be a manga artist like him, but i will be a creative person like him that can share their imagination with the others while the others can enjoy and wander in their imagination world.

Hi, my name is Muh.Dendy Syafardan. In Creativity and Innovation class, i had an homework (or we can called it blogwork) to explain about my name creatively. Surely sure it sounds unimportant for you but its really important for my grade. So let me tell you why my name is Muh.Dendy Syafardan not Satria Putra Adam nor Muhammad Yusuf Ayyub.

I’ll divide the explanation of my name in to 3 part;

  • Muh“. Muh stands for Muhammad SAW. Everybody know Muhammad as a prophet from Islam. he also my role model in every action that i take. But why my parents gives “Muh” to my name? Because my parents want me to be like him. They want me to be an individual which has traits like Siddiq (honest), Amanah (responsible) and Fatanah (smart, intelligent and wise).
  • Dendy“. Based in wikipedia.com, “Dandy” is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined languages and leisurely hobbies. Honestly, what was written was showing me. But, that is not the reason why my parents give “Dendy” to my name. My father nickname is Denny and my mother nickname is Diana. If you combine my father and my mother nickname, there will be a “Dendy”. So my names came from my parents nickname that also show how they love each other + me (hopefully)
  • Syafardan“. This name take from an artist in “Catatan Si Boy Pertama“. My parents really like that artist. His full name is Ongki Alexander Syafardan. Based on my mother say, Ongki is a handsome artist in his era. besides that, “Syafardan” is take from month in Hijri calendar which is Syafar.

To make my name more creative , i’ll split my nickname “Dendy” into a letter that representing my character.

  • D” Dandy! Like my name, i’m a man who think physical appearance is very importance. I can waste my 5 minutes just to think about what shoes that i want to use today. “5 minutes”
  • E” Energic! I have a strong and a great power. I can encourage you wherever you are and i can do whatever i want. “whatever i want”.
  • N” Noob! I’m a noob, newbie or you can say newcomer. That represent that i don’t know everything, but i willing to learn anything. “anything”
  • D” Dare! I’m dare to be different. Why dare? Because entrepreneurs do. And i’m an entrepreneurs. hopefully
  • Y” Y must so serious? I’m a man with a good sense of humor. HA HA!

That’s all my explanation about my name. Any constructive criticism gladly accepted.
