Steps to achieve the word of "success life"

Since I sat on elementary school, I started to imagined my success life. I become more interested to my future life after my father told his whole life story for the first time. He told me a lot of things, He told me that he was always be the best on his class since he was at elementary school until senior school, he was STEI ITB graduated then got scholarship to Japan by the Japanese government for Magister and Doctorol degree and so much stories. That stories has inspired me, I really really like to persue my success life.

At Elementary School, alhamdullilah I could synchronized to my father story. I was the best on my class since I was 1st grader until 6th grader. then continued to middle school, I was part of special class, bilingual class and it made me more confident to persue my future life. Now at senior school, I enroll SMA 3 Bandung and gratefully become part of Accelerated class now. That was my proof in the past and now.

Also, It can be ensure there are steps to persue and reach my "success life":

Step 1:Set goals. Some said if you want to reach your success life, first thing you do is set your goals. At first, I have imagined so much dreams until my dream became unfocused, but along with the time I could filtered all and persued all step by step. Now, my biggest dream is I want to be a businessmen (CEO) of my own company. To persue my ambition, I have through a lot of things such as finish my senior school, continue to college, graduate with the best score, go abroad for much better experience, go back to motherland, through all the process, and build my own company. It may look satisfying, but I can tell you those are hard.

Step 2:Don't be afraid. Thomas A. Edison once said,"I failed my way to success." The only thing that destroy all this is FEAR. Also, my father said,"If you ask yourself for a success life, you should be prepare to pay all the price." because your ways to "succeed" will never that easy, there are challenge and failure. I can't be afraid.

Step 3: Take risks and don't stop learning! This life is more fun and exciting when we take risks. The risk will bring us to the opportunities and not having regrets for not taken enough risks. Learning. This one is qualified if you want to be success. From learning, you will get something you don't know before.

Step 4: Network. No one in this world achieved success on their own. Success requires that you lean on someone for support. That's where the network comes in.


After finish my senior school, I want to continue my education to college. I like to choose STEI ITB as my faculty because I was inspired by father of course he was STEI ITB graduated and since then, I have more interest to technology. Later on after I graduated from STEI ITB, I like to continue my knowledge and find more experience outside my country, my plan is Japan. In Japan, I hope I can continue to Magister and Doctorol at Tokodai University like my father did. If I had enough experience and knowledge, I would like to go back to Indonesia, and I will dedicate myself for Indonesia start from work for Indonesia until I build my own company, and become happy-successful man.

PROS AND CONS OF DONALD TRUMP AS THE CANDIDATE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television producer, and politician who is the Republican Party nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election. He is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization, which is the principal holding company for his real estate ventures and other business interests. During his career, Trump has built office towers, hotels, casinos, golf courses, and other branded facilities worldwide.
On June 16, 2015, Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States at Trump Tower in New York City. He drew attention to domestic issues such as illegal immigrationoffshoring of American jobs, the U.S. national debtcrime, and Islamic terrorism. He also announced his campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again."[311] Trump runs as a self-described conservative, particularly in fiscal and religious matters. His campaign emphasizes American patriotism, with a disdain for what he refers to as "political correctness".[312] [313]Some rallies during the primary season were accompanied by protests or violence, including attacks on protesters inside the rallies, and clashes between protesters and Trump supporters outside the venues.[314][315][316]
Trump is the second major-party presidential nominee in American history whose experience comes principally from running a business (Wendell Willkie was the first).[317] If elected, Trump would become the first United States President without prior government or military experience, and the first without prior political experience since Dwight D. Eisenhower. Trump would also be the oldest first-term president; Ronald Reagan was older when he took office for a second term.[318]
The Washington Post described Trump's candidacy as something around which the alt-right movement has coalesced,[319] together with its opposition to multiculturalism and immigration.[320][321]
Republican leaders such as House Speaker Paul Ryan were hesitant to support him early on. They doubted his chances of winning the general election and feared he could harm the image of the Republican Party.[322][323]
Trump's run for president has received an unprecedented amount of free media attention.[324] Many of the statements Trump has made during his presidential campaign have been controversial. Others have been described by Politico as "mischaracterizations, exaggerations, or simply false".[325] Fact checking organizations such as PolitiFact.com and FactCheck.org have singled him out as having made a record number of false statements during his campaign compared to other candidates, based on the statements they have analyzed.[326][327][328] At least four major publications - Politico, The Washington Post, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times - described Trump statements as lies, whoppers, or falsehoods.[329] According to journalists James Oliphant and Emily Flitter, Trump's penchant for exaggerating to voters has roots in the world of New York real estate where he made his fortune, and where hyperbole is a way of life; Trump refers to this as "truthful hyperbole".[330][331] Lucas Graves, a professor at the University of Wisconsin–Madison School of Journalism & Mass Communication, says that Trump often speaks in a suggestive way that makes it unclear what exactly he meant, and Graves adds that fact-checkers "have to be really careful when you pick claims to check to pick things that can be factually investigated and that reflect what the speaker was clearly trying to communicate."[332]
Trump has stated that the media has intentionally misinterpreted his words.[333][334] The New York Times reported in August 2016 that journalistic standards normally prevent mainstream, non-opinion journalists from becoming oppositional against a particular candidate, but says that the Trump campaign is not normal.
PROS:
  1. Donald Trump's background has been pretty well examined, and what you see is pretty much what you get, so he isn't an unknown commodity at this point and we probably have seen most of his worst attributes already -- granted, those negative attributes can seem bad, but notice that in any presidential election you could probably make a laundry list of the worst attributes of any candidate and come up with lots of negatives equal to or worse than Trump's.
  2. Trump's business experience involves negotiations with business leaders and even governments around the world, and he likely has connections behind the scenes that surpass those of simply purely political candidates -- this gives him keen, realistic insights into economics in different parts of the world, as well as additional avenues to pursue trade agreements, and even perhaps some nuanced awareness of particular financial weaknesses of possible global competitors, not to mention experience and insight into the partnerships and/or antagonism between different industries and particular governments.
  3. Trump has a confidence and powerful personality that, like it or not, tend to work well in politics, and make it far less likely he would become too strongly beholden to this or that external influencer -- we complain often about our elected officials being in the pocket of lobbyists and special interests, but Trump is his own special interest and he seems unlikely to let his own sense of personal power and rightness become manipulated or dominated by outside forces.
  4. Trump is undeniably a great negotiator, and despite his bombastic public statements he has also mastered the fine art of navigating complex deals and convincing a wide variety of governments, industries, businesses, and investors to do what he wants and to work with him to achieve his goals -- while some might dislike this or that particular goal toward which Trump worked in those instances, as president a large portion of his negotiating would by necessity be in favor of very standard U.S. positions on international issues, and Trump would be applying his skills to push a lot of policies that came through/earned support from a Congress that represents the voters and that has created compromise deals and policies, rather than Trump just out there still negotiating his personal business deals that the public and our representatives weren't involved in.
  5. Trump definitely supports free enterprise and favors less regulation of the market, so those who favor more libertarian economic policies might find Trump's views on these matters to be highly positive.
CONS:
  1. Despite being well-educated on finance, Trump often seems extremely prone to embrace uninformed positions that turn into major embarrassments for him -- his promotion of the "Obama isn't a U.S. citizen" myth, his promotion of the anti-vaccination myths, and repeated comments that give the appearance (correct or not) that he doesn't check facts or stay informed about serious issues.
  2. He's repeatedly made comments that many people felt had racial undertones -- including messages on Twitter asserting that black and Latino citizens commit most violent crimes in major cities, his aforementioned statements questioning Obama's birth and whether he's a Muslim, and other remarks.
  3. Trump has been repeatedly accused of being untrustworthy, by investors and buyers as well as others, and some of the accusations include allegations of fraud -- lack of trust and concern about corruption are major problems for a presidential candidate.
  4. Trump's leadership in business has allowed him to push his demands through and he's not been surrounded with people who might disagree and even try to oppose him, so he doesn't have experience building a team designed for purposes other than promoting his own narrow agenda and providing information that might be in contrast to his own position and goals -- a president has to compromise, and cannot expect to just do whatever they want while threatening to fire anyone who displeases them.
  5. Trump seems impulsive and more interested in self-promotion than necessarily accomplishing significant goals -- even his finances are geared heavily toward promoting his personal brand and making him more money in order to further self-promote, with much of his behavior in public seeming largely motivated by garnering attention.
  6. Trump's financial behavior has not always been successful, and in fact he's been through bankruptcy and openly admits manipulating bankruptcy laws to enrich himself at the expense of society and other people, so that he protects himself from risk by getting governments and banks to shoulder more of the burden and let him off the hook more cheaply -- lack of adequate responsibility, coupled with repeated failures on a large scale, plus actual broad lack of experience on Wall Street and with stocks, adds up to undermine his reputation as bringing good financial experience and expertise to the presidency.
There are of course more pros and cons to consider, but these are the primary ones as I see them.

BOOK REVIEW:MOCKINGJAY

Mockingjay, the concluding book in the Hunger Games trilogy, is a complete mess. And I mean that in the best possible way. Let me explain.

Any book that intends to complete a series suffers from an immediate disadvantage: The reader knows it has to tie up all the loose ends, resolve all the character issues, and provide a satisfying climax. This is true for television shows, too, as we saw earlier this year in the series finale of Lost: there is no satisfying way to end a good story because good stories, like life, offer too many roads to peer down to sufficiently explore them all.

As a result, writers generally choose one of two paths: 1) Tie it all up with a nice bow (aka, a Hollywood Ending), or 2) Leave it a mess.

Suzanne Collins has left the world of Katniss Everdeen a complete mess. Those of you who have already finished it (NO SPOILERS HERE) might disagree: after all, the major issues appear to be resolved, right? Wrong. While it is certainly true that some specific plot points are given closure (and certain important decisions such as: which boy to love? are answered), the truth is that Hunger Games was about much more than just which boy the girl will choose.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the author's handling of the two-men-are-not-enough theme, the same one that Stephenie Meyer seems obsessed with (see my reviews of the Twilight Saga to see how I've dealt with that in the past). It fueled Katniss's character in ways that were meaningful to her and to us. But that theme was not the purpose of the trilogy.

Instead, the Hunger Games is primarily a book about war and human tragedy. About what we will do to each other in the name of preventing the same thing from being done either to ourselves or someone we love. This particularly painful decision is achingly rendered again and again across all three of these books and Katniss is most believable when she is torn between harming people to achieve important objectives and allowing herself to be damaged in order to spare others. This concluding book does not shrink from the same dilemma, this time painting the decision to kill or be killed in starker, more culpable colors.

This is made even more gripping because one of Collins's strongest points as a writer is that from Book 1, she has not been afraid to kill characters that we are supposed to love and identify with. And this climactic book takes this tendency to its logical extreme. You can never rest easy in the knowledge that Collins "wouldn't dare go there." She dares. All the while we see the death and devastation, the killing and the mourning, through the eyes of Katniss Everdeen: compassionate, conflicted, killer.

I won't pretend that the book is perfectly constructed. My four-star rating despite my obvious admiration for the book is due to this. Just like her principal character, the author is at her best when thrust in the middle of life-threatening action that requires her naive intelligence and compassionate outrage to find their full expression. But there are significant sections between action moments that move slowly, that seem disjointed from the pacing of the book. Most of this I ascribe to Collins trying to set the stage for an unexpected -- albeit satisfying - murderous climax.

But even in the midst of the stop and go action, I found myself admiring Collins for not hiding us from the messiness: the action can't flow perfectly, there can be no action-hero sequence in which everything just comes together. In fact, Katniss is a hero that is not particularly heroic.

Because war is hell. And hell is, by definition, messy. So the plot is messy, as is Katniss's mental state throughout the book, as is the conclusion I had to read twice to ensure I understood it and could agree that it had to end that way.

Without giving it away, the end of Mockingjay says this: Humans have always killed each other and will likely always kill each other. But we find the strength to love and the naivete to create life only in each other's forgiving arms, regardless of the damage that has been done to us. Or, in the case of Katniss, the damage we have done to others.

KINGSMAN:THE SECRET SERVICE

KINGSMAN:THE SECRET SERVICE is a spy film directed by Matthew Vaughn, and based on the comic book The Secret Service, created by Dave Gibbonsand Mark Millar. The screenplay was written by Vaughn and Jane Goldman. It follows the recruitment and training of a potential secret agent, Gary "Eggsy" Unwin (Taron Egerton), into a secret spy organisation. Eggsy joins a mission to tackle a global threat from Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), a wealthy megalomaniac. The film also stars Colin Firth, Mark Strong, and Michael Caine.
Kingsman: The Secret Service premiered at the annual film marathon Butt-Numb-A-Thon on 13 December 2014, and was theatrically released in the United Kingdom on 29 January 2015. The film received positive reviews, and has grossed over $414 million worldwide, becoming Vaughn's most commercially successful film to date. A sequel, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, is scheduled for a 16 June 2017 release.

FOR THE TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YndPKlsY3Tg 

Plot
During a raid in the Middle East in 1997, a probationary secret agent sacrifices himself to save his team. Blaming himself, Harry Hart, code-named "Galahad", delivers a medal for valor to the agent's widow, Michelle Unwin, and her young son, Gary "Eggsy", saying that if they ever need help, they should call the phone number on the back of the medal.
Kingsman goods
Seventeen years later, Professor James Arnold is kidnapped by Internet billionaire and philanthropist Richmond Valentine. One of Hart's fellow agents, "Lancelot", attempts a rescue single-handed, but is killed by Gazelle, Valentine's henchwoman. Valentine secretly meets with various powerful individuals, some of whom go missing afterwards. He also announces a giveaway of SIM Smart cards, granting free cellular and Internet access forever to everyone.
In London, Eggsy is now an unemployed young adult living with his mother, infant half-sister, and abusive stepfather, Dean. Despite being highly intelligent and capable, he left training for the Royal Marines and lives the aimless life of a stereotypical chav.[6][7] Arrested for stealing a car, Eggsy calls the number on the medal. Hart has him released and tells Eggsy about his father - he was an agent of Kingsman, an "independent international intelligence agency" founded in 1919 by wealthy British individuals who had lost their heirs in the First World War.
With Lancelot's death, the agency has a vacancy. As Hart's choice, Eggsy joins the other handpicked candidates, including a woman named Roxy, whom he befriends. Training is overseen by "Merlin", a senior Kingsman. Eventually, only Eggsy and Roxy pass the rigorous selection process. Eggsy fails the final test, and Roxy becomes the new Lancelot.
During this time, Merlin notes that Arnold is no longer missing. Hart tries to extract information from the professor, but a chip implanted in Arnold's head explodes, killing him. Hart is injured escaping from unknown assailants. The signal that triggered the blast is traced to Valentine's corporation. Hart poses as a billionaire and dines with Valentine to try to ascertain his plans. During the private dinner, Valentine makes it clear he knows that Hart is a secret agent, but lets him leave unharmed in order to secretly track his movements and learn more about his organisation.
Hart links Valentine to an obscure hate group's church in Kentucky. It is a trap; Valentine uses his SIM cards to broadcast a tone that causes everyone in the church, including Hart, to become uncontrollably violent. A mass brawl erupts, and Hart emerges the sole survivor. Eggsy, Merlin and Arthur — Kingsman's leader — watch via video link. Afterward, Valentine shoots and kills Hart.
When Eggsy goes to see Arthur, he discovers that Arthur has a scar behind his ear, just like Valentine's other converts. Arthur slips poison into Eggsy's brandy, but Eggsy distracts Arthur and switches the glasses. Arthur explains Valentine's views before he realises this; humanity is akin to a virus, and global warming is the Earth's equivalent of a fever. Valentine intends to broadcast his "neurological wave" worldwide to cause a massive culling of the human race to rescue it from extinction. Only those whom Valentine deems worthy of living — his allies, who have protective microchips implanted in their heads, and the VIPs he kidnapped — will be spared.
Unsure whom to trust, Merlin decides that he, Lancelot and Eggsy must stop Valentine on their own. Lancelot rides a high-altitude balloon into the stratosphere to disrupt Valentine's impending broadcast by destroying one of his satellites, while Eggsy and Merlin infiltrate Valentine’s mountain bunker complex. Lancelot downs the satellite, but Valentine gets a business contact to replace it, then activates the signal, causing worldwide violence.
Eggsy is recognised and engages in a running fight with Valentine's henchmen. Eventually, both he and Merlin are cornered separately, but at Eggsy's suggestion, Merlin hacks into Valentine's system and causes the implants to explode, killing every villain except Valentine and Gazelle. Eggsy fights and kills Gazelle, then spears Valentine with Gazelle's prosthetic leg, ending the worldwide carnage.
Eggsy becomes a Kingsman agent. He offers his mother a new home away from Dean. When Dean objects, Eggsy waylays him in exactly the same manner that Hart dealt with one of Dean's henchmen earlier.

A wised man once said,"Manners. Maketh. Man."
-Harry Hart

Krakatoa/Krakatau eruption in 1883

Krakatoa, or Krakatau is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in the Indonesian province of Lampung. The name is also used for the surrounding island group comprising the remnants of a much larger island of three volcanic peaks which was obliterated in a cataclysmic 1883 eruption, unleashing huge tsunamis (killing more than 36,000 people) and destroying over two-thirds of the island. The explosion is considered to be the loudest sound ever heard in modern history, with reports of it being heard up to 3,000 miles (4,800 km) from its point of origin. The shock waves from the explosion were recorded on barographs worldwide.
In 1927 a new island, Anak Krakatau, or "Child of Krakatoa", emerged from the caldera formed in 1883 and is the current location of eruptive activity.

Historical Significance
The most notable eruptions of Krakatoa culminated in a series of massive explosions over August 26–27, 1883, which were among the most violent volcanic events in recorded history.
The eruption was equivalent to 200 megatons of TNT, about 13,000 times the nuclear yield of the Little Boy bomb (plutonium bomb) that devastated Hiroshima, Japan, during World War II. The most powerful nuclear device ever detonated.
The 1883 eruption ejected approximately 25 km3 (6 cubic miles) of rock. The cataclysmic explosion was heard 4,800 km (3,000 mi) away in Alice Springs, as well as on the island of Rodrigues nearMauritius, 4,653 km (2,891 mi) to the west.
According to the official records of the Dutch East Indies colony, 165 villages and towns were destroyed near Krakatoa, and 132 were seriously damaged. At least 36,417 people died, and many more thousands were injured, mostly from the tsunamis that followed the explosion. The eruption destroyed two-thirds of the island of Krakatoa.
Eruptions in the area since 1927 have built a new island at the same location, named Anak Krakatau (which is Indonesian for "Child of Krakatoa"). Periodic eruptions have continued since, with recent eruptions in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. As of late 2011, this island has a radius of roughly 2 kilometres (1.2 mi), and a high point of about 324 metres (1,063 ft) above sea level, growing 5 metres (16 ft) each year.

At some point in prehistory, an earlier caldera-forming eruption had occurred, leaving as remnants Verlaten (or Sertung); Lang (also known as Rakata Kecil, or Panjang); Poolsche Hoed; ("Polish Hat") and the base of Rakata. Later, at least two more cones (Perboewatan and Danan) formed and eventually joined with Rakata, forming the main island of Krakatoa. At the time of the 1883 eruption, the Krakatoa group comprised Lang, Verlaten, and Krakatoa itself, an island 9 km (5.6 mi) long by 5 km (3.1 mi) wide. There were also the tree-covered islet near Lang (Poolsche Hoed) and several small rocky islets or banks between Krakatoa and Verlaten.
There were three volcanic cones on Krakatoa island: Rakata, (820 m or 2,690 ft) to the south; Danan, (450 m or 1,480 ft) near the center; and Perboewatan, (120 m or 390 ft) to the north.
416 AD event
The Javanese Book of Kings (Pustaka Raja) records that in the year 338 Saka (416 AD):
A thundering sound was heard from the mountain Batuwara [now called Pulosari, an extinct volcano in Bantam, the nearest to the Sunda Strait] which was answered by a similar noise from Kapi, lying westward of the modern Bantam [(Banten) is the westernmost province in Java, so this seems to indicate that Krakatoa is meant]. A great glowing fire, which reached the sky, came out of the last-named mountain; the whole world was greatly shaken and violent thundering, accompanied by heavy rain and storms took place, but not only did not this heavy rain extinguish the eruption of the fire of the mountain Kapi, but augmented the fire; the noise was fearful, at last the mountain Kapi with a tremendous roar burst into pieces and sank into the deepest of the earth. The water of the sea rose and inundated the land, the country to the east of the mountain Batuwara, to the mountain Rajabasa [the most southerly volcano in Sumatra], was inundated by the sea; the inhabitants of the northern part of the Sunda country to the mountain Rajabasa were drowned and swept away with all property. The water subsided but the land on which Kapi stood became sea, and Java and Sumatra were divided into two parts.
There is no geological evidence of a Krakatoa eruption of this size around that time; it may describe loss of land which previously joined Java to Sumatra across what is now the narrow east end of the Sunda Strait; or it may be a mistaken date, referring to a later eruption in 535 AD, for which there is some corroborating historical evidence.

535 AD event
David Keys, Ken Wohletz, and others have postulated that a violent volcanic eruption, possibly of Krakatoa, in 535 may have been responsible for the global climate changes of 535–536. Keys explores what he believes to be the radical and far-ranging global effects of just such a putative 6th-century eruption in his book Catastrophe: An Investigation into the Origins of the Modern World. Additionally, in recent times, it has been argued that it was this eruption which created the islands of Verlaten, Lang, and the beginnings of Rakata—all indicators of early Krakatoa's caldera's size. To date, however, little datable charcoal from that eruption has been found.
Thornton mentions that Krakatoa was known as "The Fire Mountain" during Java's Sailendra dynasty, with records of seven eruptive events between the 9th and 16th centuries. These have been tentatively dated as having occurred in 850, 950, 1050, 1150, 1320, and 1530.
While seismic activity around the volcano was intense in the years preceding the cataclysmic 1883 eruption, a series of lesser eruptions began on May 20, 1883. The volcano released huge plumes of steam and ash lasting until late August.
On August 27 a series of four huge explosions almost entirely destroyed the island. The explosions were so violent that they were heard 3,110 km (1,930 mi) away in Perth, Western Australia, and the island of Rodrigues near Mauritius, 4,800 km (3,000 mi) away. The pressure wave from the final explosion was recorded on barographs around the world. Several barographs recorded the wave seven times over the course of five days: four times with the wave travelling away from the volcano to its antipodal point, and three times travelling back to the volcano. Hence, the wave rounded the globe three and a half times. Ash was propelled to a height of 80 km (50 mi). The sound of the eruption was so loud it was reported that if anyone was within ten miles (16 km), they would have gone deaf.
The combined effects of pyroclastic flows, volcanic ashes, and tsunamis had disastrous results in the region and world-wide. The death toll recorded by the Dutch authorities was 36,417, although some sources put the estimate at more than 120,000. There are numerous documented reports of groups of human skeletons floating across the Indian Ocean on rafts of volcanic pumice and washing up on the east coast of Africa up to a year after the eruption. Average global temperatures fell by as much as 1.2 degrees Celsius in the year following the eruption. Weather patterns continued to be chaotic for years and temperatures did not return to normal until 1888.
