Dicari Relawan Sahabat Kota!

Earth Hour 60+ sejatinya bukan sekedar “upacara mematikan lampu ” tetapi mengajak masyarakat untuk mengubah gaya hidup dan membiasakan diri untuk hemat energy. Sebagai ilustrasi, apabila 10 % penduduk Jakarta  atau sekitar  700 ribu orang mau melakukannya maka akan berdampak penghematan  sekitar 300 megawatt listrik  yang  setara dengan :

Penyelamatan 284 pohon berusia 20 tahun

Mengurangi emisi karbon ± 284 ton CO2

Menghemat biaya listrik sebesar ± Rp 200 juta

Mengistirahatkan 1 pembangkit listrik

Menyalakan 900 desa, sekedar pengingat : hingga kini baru 66 % rakyat Indonesia yang mendapat fasilitas listrik.

Setara dengan ketersediaan oksigen untuk 534 orang

Kalkulasi diatas berdasarkan  hitungan banyaknya energy fosil yang sementara ini masih dipakai Indonesia. Kegiatan yang direncanakan akan berlangsung di kota-kota :  Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Semarang, Surabaya, Denpasar dan beberapa kota besar lainnya ini diklaim sebagai event terbesar dalam sejarah karena melibatkan 5.000 kota dan satu milyar orang.

Jadilah salah satu dari satu milyar orang yang peduli dengan bumi kita. 26/03/2011 20.30-21.30

Do You Know?

Di kawasan pabrik PT. KERTAS PADALARANG terdapat pohon yang unik. Ada pohon kelapa yang tumbuh di atas pohon beringin. Apakah ada yang tahu kenapa bisa begitu??

Washington, DC Metro Station on a cold January morning in 2007. The man with a violin played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time approximately. 2 thousand people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. 

4 minutes later:
The violinist received his first dollar: a woman threw the money in the hat and, without stopping, continued to walk.

6 minutes:
A young man leaned against the wall to listen to him, then looked at his watch and started to walk again.

10 minutes:
A 3-year old boy stopped but his mother tugged him along hurriedly. The kid stopped to look at the violinist again, but the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk, turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. Every parent, without exception, forced their children to move on quickly.

45 minutes:
The musician played continuously. Only 6 people stopped and listened for a short while. About 20 gave money but continued to walk at their normal pace. The man collected a total of $32.

1 hour:
He finished playing and silence took over. No one noticed. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.

No one knew this, but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the greatest musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written, with a violin worth $3.5 million dollars. Two days before Joshua Bell sold out a theater in Boston where the seats averaged $100.

This is a true story. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of a social experiment about perception, taste and people’s priorities.

The questions raised:
*In a common place environment at an inappropriate hour, do we perceive beauty?

*Do we stop to appreciate it?

*Do we recognize talent in an unexpected context?

One possible conclusion reached from this experiment could be this:

If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world, playing some of the finest music ever written, with one of the most beautiful instruments ever made…

How many other things are we missing?

The Power Of Words

totallywicked:

This is such a powerful message. It shows that verbal abuse can hurt as much as physical abuse. That saying “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me” is, in fact, a lie, in my opinion. Words do hurt. A lot.
