Space Development

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

When we talk about space, NASA will cross our mind. NASA ( National Aeronautics and space administration ) has great influence in space research and development. Before write this topic I browse to NASA page and I found that they have going so far and I am really suprised. It shows that I am not alert with world news. The latest news ( 21st Sept 2007 ) about NuSTAR (Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array). NASA want to restart the research about black hole and NuSTAR is the best instrument as it 500 times better in detecting black hole. Why they want to know about that scary thing? I had read before that black hole can absorb everything into it, isn't scary? Maybe, this is for knowledge sake.
Another news that attract my eyes to read it, is 'orphan' star ( pity star ). It must be very sad to become orphan in such a wide space. The truth is, that stars have been forming in a long tail of gas outside it parents galaxy. The number of stars was so unpredictable by astronomer because in order to form the star, it needs large amount of gas and dust. This news, however still in research so this is just the early hypothesis.
The last thing I want to share with you is about Virgo. I am Virgo girl because my birthday in this month. You can check my profile to confirm it. The Virgo cluster is the closest cluster to our Milky Way Galaxy and contains more than 100 galaxy with varies type ( spiral, elliptcals and irregular ). It pull our galaxy towards it because Virgo Cluster is so massive. However, I am really in doubt this cluster and horoscope. Honestly, sometimes I do believe what the horoscope state but how they predict it. Well, I will find out about this and of course I will share with you in the next post. See ya


Ehem...actually this is a new phase of my blog. Well, I try my best to write originally because before this, sincerely, I do copy-paste. It is not because I am lazy(maybe sometimes) but I am not so confident to write on my own. My English not so good and my grammar (uhh..sigh) very poor. First of all, I want to apologise if there is mistake in my writting and please don't be shy correct it by posting your comment. I am so eager for your comment. Thank you for read and do enjoying it. Wish me luck as I'm quiet busy with my study ( like in the picture ) and I hope I will get flying colour result.

Education is a process of teaching, training and learning to improve knowledge and develop skills. Society misunderstand that education is only in school or college but the truth is any level of age need education. For this theme I want to touch about education for employee.
Nowadays many consultant that held a motivation program for this group. " We are professional so we don't need any motivator to lecture us", this is one of the dialog that always come out from the professional's mouth. Of course this is wrong opinion because everyone need motivation to make sure get a better life. A company make this programme to improve the quality of work fom their worker. It also to remind the employee their aim in their profession. Motivation very important but not only that, the other education for worker is workshop.
Workshop is for sharpen the employee skills especially when we talk about engineering or many else.

Water resources are sources of water that are useful or potentially useful to humans. It is important because it is needed for life to exist. All knows how important the water is. Virtually all of these human uses require fresh water. Only 2.7% of water on the Earth is fresh water, and over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps, leaving only 0.007% available for human use. Fresh water is a renewable resource, yet the world's supply of clean, fresh water is steadily decreasing. Water demand already exceeds supply in many parts of the world, and as world population continues to rise at an unprecedented rate, many more areas are expected to experience this imbalance in the near future.
I dont want to touch about water pollution yet but now we concentrate at water resources :
  • Surface water - water of a lake, river, or fresh water wetland. Naturally replenished by precipitation and naturally lost through discharge to the oceans, evaporation, and sub-surface seepage. Canada has the largest supply of fresh water in the world.
  • Sub-surface water - fresh water located in the pore space of soil and rocks. It is also water that is flowing within aquifers below the water table.
  • Desalination - Desalination is an artificial process by which saline water (generally ocean water) is converted to fresh water. The most common desalination processes are distillation and reverse osmosis. Desalination is currently very expensive compared to most alternative sources of water, and only a very small fraction of total human use is satisfied by desalination.
  • Frozen water - Several schemes have been proposed to make use an iceberg as a water resource, however to date this has only been done for novelty purposes. Glacier runoff is considered to be surface water.

Even though water is renewable source but threats such as pollution, climate change, and depletion of aquifers will bring harm to all. One of the water pollutions are the oil spill. When the Exxon Valdez oil spill happened, many people were shocked and horrified. But the ship spilt 10.8 million gallons, almost nothing compared with as many as 428 million gallons for the Ixtoc I in Mexico and other less-known spills. Media coverage hardly proportionally to the totoal amount of damage done. The biggest oil spill when Ixtoc I ( 1979-1980 ) blow-out and 139 till 428 million gallons oill spill over the sea.

Different Aspect of Culture

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

The defination of culture are varies and in my opinion culture related to the way of life for the society. We can identify the society by looking at their lifestyle. As such it includes code of manners, dress, language, religion,ritual ,norm of behaviour such as law and molarity and systems of belief. A country can have many culture because of mix society. for instance, Malays in the same society but have many types of culture even the language or it is more accurate to say the essences are different.
Despite the great cultural diversity of Asian nations, there are, nevertheless, several transnational cultural influences. Though Korea, Japan, and Vietnam are not Chinese-speaking countries, their languages have been influenced by Chinese and Chinese writing. Many Asian religious and philosophical traditions originated in India and China and spread across Asia through cultural diffusion and the migration of peoples. Religions such as Hinduism and Islam have for hundreds of years exerted cultural influence on various peoples of South Asia.
Nowadays, every society struggle to make sure their ancestor culture still a part of their live which is difficult because some of them do not care about that.
Technology is the other factor that people think can destroy their culture. Positively, multimedia such as television, internet and radio can expose the culture to the member of the society that do not know also to others society. But, technology also bring trigger when the new generation get fanatic with tech-game and they start forget traditional game. The lifestyle also change.
