Palestina berdarah lagi, perdamaian di tanah suci semakin jauh dari harapan. Negara-negara arabia seolah tidak punya kuasa membela tetangganya yang sedang meregang nyawa. Pada pemilu USA lalu, banyak harapan di dalam impian seluruh dunia akan terciptanya perdamaian di dunia ini dengan lengsernya bush, biang keonaran dunia ini. Sehingga layak kalau saya beri sebutan biang kerusakan dunia ini bukan ganja, atw narkoba lainnya atau bahkan teroris. Yang jelas biang kerusakan dunia ini adalah Bush dan kroni-kroni yahudinya. 2 manusia yahudi terbunuh, dibayar dengan ratusan muslim palestina, sebandingkah itu? Infrastruktur, sosial kemasyarakatan hancur, bahkan peradaban seolah lenyap ditengah kerakusan hegemoni USA dan yahudi.
Sungguh memalukan saat USA ditengah euphoria pemilu dan kemenangan OBAMA yang disebut-sebut pemimpin era baru perdamaian... Indonesia pun ikut terlena dengan ikut mengelukan OBAMA, padahal dia cuma pernah tinggal tidak begitu lama di Indonesia. Latah katakanlah begitu, OBAMA tidak pernah memberikan secuilpun pengaruh di Indonesia bahkan dia tidak pernah disebut bahkan muncul batang hidungya di media manapun di Indonesia. Namun sejak menjadi calon Presiden USA, menjadi begitu populer di negeri kita ini, bahkan kolega-koleganya ikut-ikutan muncul, mantan guru danlain sebagainya. Mungkin kalau bisa berbicara, cucu buaya peliharaannyapun akan ikut sumbang suara. Tapi apa hasilnya sekarang? Obama tidak lebih dari perpanjangan Yahudi untuk merusak kembali tatanan dunia setelah apa yang dilakukan sang bush. Amerika dan Yahudi tidak akan bisa dipisahkan sampai dunia terbelah jadi dua.

Far Cry 2

Posted by si_awam | 6:20 AM


Far Cry 2 takes an entirely different approach to allowing a player to carve out their own path through Africa, and one that doesn't compromise the previous game's reputation as an uncomplicated but thrilling shooter.

The narrative designer says it’s a shooter, it s a game about killing people. So the biggest input, or the biggest monkey wrench the player can throw into any kind narrative flow, is by systematically murdering the cast of characters. What they needed was to be sure they could provide a story that wouldn't be fragile – He says, ‘We weren't trying to resist the player's efforts to change it, but we weren't left with chaos and carnage if the player's being a sociopath either’.


Improvisation


In short, it's less about shooting first and asking questions later, and more about answering the questions yourself - with bullets. It's a relatively fresh approach that could well be successful, in that rather than being conscious of which conversation option will be the best way to steer the storyline, the plot is a larger picture painted from smaller interactions and decisions are made in a way that's not self-conscious. It should also mean that those occasions where you reload because you made the 'wrong' decision in a crucial exchange, are few and far between.



By presenting the player with lots of little choices, a few medium sized choices and the occasional big choice, the player has a stronger sense that it's built on his choices rather than something some angry, vengeful or indifferent deity has imposed on him. It means the player gets to hear a lot more of the content if they want to, and if they don't they're not waiting around for the inevitable cutscene to interrupt the flow of the game.


Having spent some quality time shooting, driving and incinerating in Far Cry 2's lavish representation of Africa, we can see why that flow is so treasured. Action sequences; easily overcome through a little careful planning, but as enemies outflank and surprise you, each battle becomes a frantic series of improvisations. Legislating for a jammed rifle, or simply the meager ammunition supplies available, means you'll often be thrown into a situation where your wits are your most dangerous asset. Much has been made of fire propagation and while it'd be easy to dismiss it as a gimmick, it's often the most effective way to seal off the aggressive Al and ensure that at least one angle of attack can be considered eliminated. The conflicts we engaged in were frantic and, once the enemies were aware of our presence, we were hunted down mercilessly.


Total control


Scouting an area with the monocular, which automatically marks your map with items of interest, is one way to tip the odds slightly more in your favor, though, as Clint Hocking Creative Director, explains. ‘You can mark sniper and gunner positions because that defines where dangerous fire will be coming from. You can also mark health and ammunition supplies and mark vehicles. Instead of saying I have to mark snipers, I have to mark rocketeers, I have to mark mounted weapons, marking any one of those things reveals them all. Same with the ammo piles, I mark any kind of ammo pile as it reveals all of the ammo stores in that location’. It seems one of the few concessions to unreality, and even then this magical map is a tangible item, meaning you won't be pulling it up when the ordnance starts flying. This is in keeping with a theme of grounding the player in the world - there are no third-person cutscenes and items are collected with embodied arms and hands.


Hand in hand with that grounding is the sense that the player is the protagonist. Although a character is chosen from a cast of 12, the rest of whom become the cast of Al buddies, the player will never find themselves playing second fiddle to the scriptwriters. ‘The games I like to play don't force me to be someone that I'm not,’ Clint says. ‘There's nothing I find more frustrating in a game than having a character that I'm playing say something that I fundamentally disagree with or didn't want to say. What I want is to give the player an empty vessel to put himself in, so we've taken these 12 buddy characters, and you choose one of those to be your avatar. You're then subtracting that character from the script, and he's no longer able to be called by the dynamic elements of the story to fill a role because he's you, and he doesn't have any personality except that which you give him’.


From what we've seen, Far Cry 2 looks like it will be able to achieve an impressive reconciliation between the meathead gunplay of the original and the opportunity to really brand this rich, open world with your own decisions and personality. And as Redding explains, even those who would ordinarily actively ignore those decisions will see the world changing through their actions. ‘The meatheads don't even realize that they're participating in the story. They're like, ‘do I want to burn this guy, do I want to shoot him once he's burning, do I want to wound him and wait for his buddy to come out and save him and then shoot that guy?’ But what they don't know is that it all adds up - we're keeping track of it. We get the question a lot, 'why is it a Far Cry game?', but to me there is no better franchise to try to introduce hardcore gamers into these crazy ideas we have about procedural narrative’.

Namanya Pujiyono Cahyo Widiyanto. Pria berpenampilan nyentrik dan gaya bicara ceplas-ceplos ini memproklamirkan diri sebagai Syekh Puji. Karena rezekinya berlimpah, dia mampu membangun pesantren Mliftahul Jannah di daerah Bedono, Ambarawa, Kabupaten Semarang, Jawa Tengah.

Belakangan, Sang Syekh kian populer karena perilakunya yang dianggap kontroversial. Menikahi gadis berusia 12 tahun bernama Lutfiana Ulfa. Pernikahan siri dengan istri keduanya itu dilangsungkan 8 Agustus 2008. Pernikahan Ulfa dimakelari Kusmiati. Kisah ini bermula dari diajaknya Ulfa untuk umroh oleh Syekh Puji.

In a genre that's packed to overflow with goblins, dragons and armor-clad heroes, is there any room for another fantasy Massively Multiplayer Online (MMO) game in the current market. Sure, "World of Warcraft" sits on its throne like a mighty king, dismissing all would-be monarchs with a wave of its regal hand. While most may feel this means all challengers are sent to the dungeons to rot, swinging for all eternity from shackled walls, nothing could be further from the truth. In actuality, the Kingdom of MMOs has enough room for a prince or two and maybe even a few knights, and while each may never see the comforting warmth of a cushioned throne, they each wield great power over the citizens who follow them. This is the case with the latest member of the royal family, "Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning."


WAR's claim to fame is it's attachment to the Games Workshop miniature-based, tabletop game, "Warhammer." Rabid fans of the pseudo-sport have flocked to conventions, purchased thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, and ultimately spent there hard-earned paychecks on lackluster video games. The masses begged for a pixelated gift from the folks at EA, hoping to quell their desires for an interactive, electronic Warhammer experience. Their answer came in the form of WAR, but much like many presents from faceless gift-givers, it came at a price.

You see, WAR is an amazing game offering much of what made its predecessors successful while creating unique experiences for the seasoned MMO veterans. The user interface, quest givers and combat systems will, without a doubt, remind you of popular titles such as "Everquest" and "World of Warcraft," but where this game really shines is with its Player versus Player (PvP) combat and stellar public quest systems. PvP is brought to a larger scale with Realm versus Realm combat. Once there, you'll join up with a massive army as you lead an assault or defend your homeland against your enemies. Public Quests offer repeatable, scripted events that can earn special rewards as well as the opportunity to participate in mini adventures that act as a reprieve from monotonous grinding.

Sadly, these amazing features are stained with the frustration caused by low framerates and lag issues. Don't get me wrong. I've played enough MMOs from beta to release to know that every game on this scale suffers lag issues and lowered framerates. I'm sure as the game gathers subscribers, has the chance to tweak their servers, and patch system-slowing glitches, WAR will be an enjoyable experience for everyone playing. But, when your running a system that exceeds system requirements and the game chugs like the Little Engine That Could, all you experience is irritation.

All-in-all, would I recommend WAR, absolutely. The game offers everything that makes its competitors great and improves upon it every step of the way. System slowdowns, much like bad weather, will pass, allowing the sun to shine, birds to sing, and greenskins to plant their mighty axes in the toughened skulls of enraged dwarves. WAAAAAGH!!!

Plasma televisions are becoming more and more popular in American households because of their amazing picture quality. Most people who are looking for a serious home theater start looking at plasma HDTV's. Compared to LCD TV's, they have much richer colors and the black and dark colors are much blacker. There are several advantages and disadvantages of owning plasma television. Learn the pro's and con's before you head out to the store.


Advantage #1 - Picture Quality
The main reasons people choose plasma over LCD, rear projection and front projectors is the picture quality. Because of the plasma technology, the colors displayed by plasma TV's are superior to those of any other kind of television. Many people think that when the color black is displayed on their TV that it is actually black. However, most TV's can't actually display blacks. They are just dark shades of gray. Plasma TV's produce very black blacks because of the plasma technology.

Advantage #2 - Screen Size
Plasma TV's start in the 42 inch and higher range. If you are looking for a large TV, there are plenty of plasma options. LCD screens range from cell phone screens clear up to 65 inch televisions but a large plasma TV is typically a better buy than a LCD TV. If you are buying a plasma TV 50 inches or great, make sure you get a HDTV with 1080p resolution. 1080p is the highest possible resolution and if you are viewing a large screen TV, you will actually see the difference between 1080p and 720p. If it is a smaller TV, the difference is hardly noticeable and not worth the extra money.

Disadvantage #1 - Cost
Plasma TV's are typically the most expensive televisions on the market. They used be nearly double or triple the price of similar LCD HDTV's. The prices are slowly dropping due to advances in technology but you will usually pay more for a plasma TV than the same size in a LCD or rear projection television. Plasma TV's also cost more to run because they require more power and electricity. It isn't a major difference but over the course of a year, you might pay an extra couple hundred dollars in electricity bills.

Disadvantage #2 - Screen Size
Because plasma's aren't usually available in less than 42 inch screen size, you can't get a smaller TV if you are limited to a certain size. Most flat panel owners are looking in the 30 and 40 inch range and you will find your options are somewhat limited if you are looking for a plasma television. If you are buying a smaller screen, you don't have to have 1080p resolution. Many new TV's come with 1080p but if you have the choice, a 720p might save you some money and you won't even notice the difference.

Keajaiban Air

Posted by si_awam | 3:21 PM


Beberapa Keajaiban Air

1. Air pada fasa padat jauh lebih ringan dp air pd fasa cair. Karena itu es mengambang. Ini penting untuk kehidupan di danau air tawar, krn es berperan sbg penyekat thd pelepasan energi panas shg pembekuan air dr permukaan hingga ke dasar tdk terjadi.

2 Titik beku berkurang di bwh tekanan, shg pencairan terjadi di dasar glacier yg memudahkan terjadinya aliran glacier.

3. Rantai H putus di bawah tekanan, shg es di bwh tekanan akan menjadi plastis, shg daratan es di Antartika dan Artik mengalir melepaskan gunung es di atasnya. Tanpa proses ini, maka semua air akan menjadi es di daerah kutub.


Keajaiban Air Yg Lain

Di Jepang, Dr. Masaru Emoto dari Universitas Yokohama dg tekun melakukan penelitian ttg perilaku air dan menulis buku tentang ’the True Power of Water’.

Menurut dia air bisa "mendengar" kata2, "membaca" tulisan, dan "mengerti" pesan dan serta merekam pesan spt pita magnetik atau compact disk. Semakin kuat konsentrasi pemberi pesan, semakin dlm pesan tercetak di air.

Air bisa mentransfer pesan tadi melalui molekul air yg lain.

Bbrp hasil foto kristal dr air yg telah mndpt pesan dan didinginkan sampai -5oC

Ketika dibacakan doa untuk kesembuhan didepan sebotol air maka terekam kristal seperti dibawah


Ketika dicoba dibacakan doa Islam, kristal bersegi enam dengan lima cabang daun muncul berkilauan. Subhanallah.

Ketika diputarkan musik Symphony Mozart, kristal muncul berbentuk bunga.



Ketika musik heavy metal diperdengarkan, kristal hancur.



Kristal air ini merekam lagu ‘Imagine’ dari John Lennon. Spt lagunya, kristal ini unik dan indah. Setiap elemen tumbuh dg harmonis



Selanjutnya ditunjukkan kata ”malaikat” : terbentuk rantai dg kristal hexagonal yg indah (gambar kiri) dan ketika ditunjukan kata "setan", kristal berbentuk buruk dg bola api ditengah (gambar kanan).




Barangkali itulah, kenapa air putih yg didoai bisa menyembuhkan si sakit. Dulu ini diang-gap musyrik, atau paling2 cuma dianggap sugesti, Ternyata molekul air menangkap pesan doa kesembuhan, menyimpannya, lalu vibrasi-nya merambat kpd molekul air lain yg ada di tubuh si sakit.Tubuh manusia memang 75% terdiri atas air. Otak 74,5% air. Darah 82% air. Tulang yg keras pun mengandung 22% air. Air putih galon di rumah bisa setiap hari didoakan dg khusyu kpd Allah, agar anak yg meminumnya saleh, sehat, dan cerdas, dan agar suami yg minum tetap setia. Air tadi akan berproses di tubuh menerus-kan pesan kpd air di otak dan pembuluh darah. Dgn izin Allah, pesan tadi akan dilaksanakan tubuh tanpa kita sadari. Bila air minum kota didoakan dg serius un-tuk kesalehan, insya Allah semua penduduk yg meminumnya akan menjadi baik dan tdk beringas. Rasulullah saw. bersabda, "Zamzam lima syuriba lahu", "Air zamzam akan melaksanakan pesan dan niat yg meminumnya". Barangsiapa minum supaya kenyang, dia akan kenyang. Barangsiapa minum untuk menyembuhkan sakit, dia akan sembuh. Subhanallah. Pantaslah air zamzam begitu berkhasiat karena dia menyimpan pesan doa jutaan manusia selama ribuan th sejak Nabi Ibrahim a.s.

Bila kita renungkan berpuluh ayat Al Quran ttg air, kita akan tersentak bhw Allah rupanya selalu menarik perhatian kita kpd air. Bahwa air tdk sekadar benda mati. Dia menyimpan kekuatan, daya rekam, daya penyembuh, dan sifat2 aneh lainnya yg menunggu disingkap manusia. Islam adalah agama yang paling melekat dengan air. Shalat wajib perlu air wudlu 5 kali sehari. Habis bercampur, suami istri wajib mandi. Mati pun wajib dimandikan. Tidak ada agama lain yg menyuruh memandikan jenazah, malahan ada yang dibakar. Tetapi kita belum melakukan zikir air. Kita masih perlakukan air tanpa respek. Kita buang secara mubazir, bahkan kita cemari. Astaghfirullah. Seorang ilmuwan Jepang telah merintis. Ilmuwan muslim harus melanjutkan kajian kehidupan ini berdasarkan Al Quran dan hadis. Siapa tahu kasus lumpur panas Lapindo bisa diatasi dg terapi doa spt tersebut diatas. Wallahu a'lam .
