The dynamics of the existence of the essence of education in the land of water for this, feels no more than what is called "intellectual factory". So the fact terabaikan education sejatinya seemingly offhand. Identifying the education that we have experienced the shift from the values luhurnya. Digantikannya products with self-love and self brutality of the greedy, and not just empty the philosophical values. Aksentuasinya lies in the establishment of the intellectual insight that is only stuck on the values of life that will dry morality and ethics in societal life.

The assumption was not based on the existence of a variety of other facts that indicate that at all levels and areas of life in the country's philosophy of life crisis. They thus become the educated corruptor while those who are not educated to become even sneak. There are also groups that confusion, and become fitter inhaler sabu-sabu and fell on the drugs. While the purpose of education is actually the birth of individuals independent, mature, responsible and sensitive to permasalah social environment.

Musthofa Rembangy, the author of this book with the title Education transformative (Struggle Formulating Critical Education in the Middle eddy Globalization), offers a different perspective on various issues will be education nowadays. Especially in education in the land of water terstigma still backward compared with the countries of others.

When the future of education which has been running in Indonesia, quite a lot of systems that must be changed even dirombak total. Start from a perspective that is used, the model of learning, emphasis on educational goals and many more lines and in various other sectors. That should all be done in order to push up the quality of human resources that will be produced soon in order to fight and wrestle for the torrent of globalization.

In general, this book presents the ideas and constructive play in scrutinize the world of education today. Sprinkle dilontarkan thought that step as a strategic effort to do reconstruction in mind that more education and transformative global conception. Education is always the humanist values in life, but also capable of reading the real conditions in the global community at this time and the conception of the future. Makes this book very important to us it would be made with reference.

In the last few centuries of the development of education and experience spectacular progress, especially in terms of engineering science and technology. Encouraging people to be strong and street.

Model of cooperative education to all students the ability to process the free thinking and innovative. Appreciate at the same time developing the potential of every individual with the potential to grow and develop is a reasonable and humane not turned off with any form of sanctions and penyeragaman.

In the vortex flow of globalization, the reality of our education also has not been able to create a critical learners and have the ability in facing global challenges and that the more oppress mencengkram. This is the situation in education is not value-free, the education should be concerned. Interests to deliver candidates of the nation is capable of facing all challenges to be faced in the future.

Transformation of education is important to notice a strong challenge in the global era. One is the transformation of large-scale konsekuesi create logical emergence new culture of ethics in our human resources work. If education still rely on certain aspects, can be the education we will be far behind with the other nations. In the macro, the era of globalization is a challenge to grasp the human resources competencies among nations.

Therefore, the impression merenungi every step of life we can keep the essence of education sincere. Act as the values of education have been taught during this lelehur from the root of the culture of this nation. Not change the philosophical foundations of education with the values of pragmatic in real life and very empty. The idea is an education should be directed to the noble goal, that is, the man who makes intelligent, creative and humanist.

In other words, the future of this nation depends on the condition of education today. Therefore, through this book, at least we can make this country more successfully treat human and humane education are also high berintelektual. A dream that does not necessarily become a mere utopia, but we must try to achieve now. At least, good for us as educators, students, observers of education, policy, government and the general public, this book can be made as of the beginning of everything. Hopefully!

Nasionalisme Kaum Muda

Author: Yudha Wardhana Day.

According to Ernest Renan (often referred to as the father of nationalism), nationalism defined as a desire to unite (le froufrou etreensemble d') as a nation. Will grow this awareness will be encouraged because the history or the experience of living together and traveled together.

Based on historical analysis, the Congress Youth II dated 28 October 1928 and the Youth Oath diperingati as a manifestation of the growth of national consciousness (nationalism) in the struggle of Dutch colonialism and imperialism, where the pattern of resistance before this more locally. And can not dinafikan awareness that growth could not be separated from the contribution of young people with idealism and post-implementation of new paradigms Etis Politics.

Kegemilangan young people play in the role as the motor of awareness as this is a nation that inspire them to move back to free us from political oppression, economic, legal and so forth, the leaders made their own Ironically, that is the Old Order era (1959-1966) and New Order (1966-1998).

In the field of politics, democracy is alive in the discourse and rhetoric, but in reality dead. Pembangunnan economy enjoyed only certain groups, especially the power elite, the owners of capital and close to the power elite. Meanwhile, the security of the position before the law (equality before the law) of the 1945 Constitution in Article 27 paragraph 1 is not implemented. In fact, the law is often a shield of power and become a tool for action melegalkan authoritarian ruler.

Order regime after a long and successful New Order prostrate, nationalism get serious tests, both from internal and external. From internal, Euphoria freedom can be the spirit of individualism and partikularisme. Various demands for this region that many have experienced oppression diakomodasi possible not to develop into a conflict kontraproduktif or even separatism. Nationalism also may not be fast to oversee the reform process.

Meanwhile, the external challenge is about the problem of globalization. Nationalism is not synonymous with chauvinisme. Indonesia still demanded the ability to be able to live and work nerdampingan nations dnegan world. Moreover, the 1933 Montevideo Convention on one of the elements of the state is related to the ability of other countries. However, keep in mind that the demands of globalization is not to cause interference in other countries to set up business in Indonesia so that it does not get stuck on a new round foreign imperialism. In addition, relations with foreign countries must be held to support and should not harm efforts to achieve national goals as stated in the 1945 Constitution of the fourth paragraph, namely to protect the entire Indonesian nation and the entire homeland of Indonesia, to promote general welfare, achieve the life of the nation and participate in implementing the order berasarkan world of freedom, lasting peace and social justice.

Facing these problems, the role of active young people with the spirit nasionalismenya still is necessary, among others, while maintaining the spirit of concern will be the fate of Indonesia, the awareness for the nation keentingan above personal or group interests, and moral movement to oversee the process of reform toward the front of the Indonesian nation is better in all sectors.

reason to used ebook

Ebooks are new, with some old roots

What is an ebook? Is there an accepted definition of what we are talking about when we say or write “ebook?”

The term ”ebook” has generally been associated with two things. First, there is the actual book (i.e. content) that one is reading in a digital form, that is the ebook. Second, the device built specifically to read an ebook, using a handheld computer with screen, is called the ebook reader. The Amazon Kindle and Sony Reader Digital Book are the two best-known examples of ebook readers. For years (decades actually), there has been a movement to read ebooks from computers, laptops, or other existing devices, but that business never really matured.

This ebook industry we are talking about here, which will grow significantly over the coming year, has been emerging for the last 1-2 years. It includes a whole new generation of technology specifically designed to enhance the experience of reading an ebook. 2009 will birth this dynamic new industry, which includes ebook readers, ebooks, and associated products and services to support the publishing, distribution, and reading of ebooks using versatile, mobile, eye-friendly ebook readers.

2009 is the “Year of the Ebook.” Here, in no particular order, is why:


In 2009, we will see a merging of digital technologies and plastics, that will bring us lighter, more durable and versatile, and more attractive devices for reading ebooks. These ebook readers will be a significant aesthetic leap over the existing laptops or cell phones we use. They will not only be mobile, they will be office-friendly, home-friendly, and best of all, café-friendly.


The ebook reader is on a similar sales path as the iPod was during its first couple years on the market. It took the iPod about two years to reach a million users. The ebook is roughly now at half a million users who have bought ebook readers in the last year, and another half a million users who are using existing devices, primarily the iPod/iPhone.

Less than 1% of the people who use the Internet have personally experienced the new digital ink technologies, which make reading significantly more pleasant. The primary supplier of the new technology behind the ebook readers is a company named E Ink. Watch for a sea-change in opinion about ebook readers once more people have used E Ink based products.


Books and ebooks, in all their forms, are comfort food for the mind. Books allow you to pause for a moment, think, remember, and reflect, at your own pace. They are stable and personal. Whether its reading Siddhartha for the 11th time, or finding a new cookbook, ebooks will deliver well-timed comfort for the intellectually needy.

Any book, anytime, anywhere? Need to find that favorite passage from Alice in Wonderland for your kids Right Now? How about some quiet poetry before you make that dynamic PowerPoint presentation? A chapter from your college accounting textbook? The practical advantages of ebooks will outweigh the emotional attachment to books.


It takes roughly the same amount of time, bandwidth, storage, however you want to measure it, to download 1,000 ebooks, as it does to download one movie. That means, that the cost of delivery is cheap, which benefits everyone. No new fancy networks need to be built. While there is no guarantee that ebook prices will be less than their book counterparts, there is at least hope.


In a couple years, when the ebook industry is more developed, it will cost a lot more money for companies to enter this industry. 2009 is the perfect year for the venture capitalists (who will have all refined their approaches but not their end goal!), corporate investors, even angel investors in smaller opportunities to risk money in hopes of being a player in a high growth market.


Most books have gone through rigorous conceptual, proofing, editing, and completion processes. Each has its own unique content, wrapped in a tight tangible package. Think of a million ebooks like a million websites, each with about 200 pages, where each page of the book can be directly accessed. Collectively, all these ebooks represent a great new source of information.

Yes we loved those liner notes on the LP’s, then the tiny liner notes on the CD’s, but by and large we have now essentially detached ourselves from LP’s, and soon CD’s. The book is just a delivery format, that has lasted an amazing 500+ years, but at its heart, the book is just there to deliver the content, something ebooks can do much better.


Power consumption for ebook readers is significantly lower than for the laptops or cell phones we now use. You can sit there for a couple weeks of continuous reading before even thinking about recharging your ebook reader. Compare that to whatever device you are currently carrying around with you.


Already companies are reporting higher profit margins on ebooks versus books. There are so many direct costs involved with books, that now disappear with ebooks, including printing, shipping, and handling. There are also the indirect costs, all the people needed to support that type of operation. Ebooks take away those costs and overhead.


If you want to spend your time getting in the car, driving to the bookstore, or perusing a library, that’s fine. But be truthful about what that time is, book hunting is NOT time spent with a book. If you can find yourself immersed within a book faster, because of ebook search and download software, well then, it means you have now spent more time within a book.

Even though there has been a lot of talk about technologies “saving trees”, really most of it has been just that – talk. Over 20 years ago, this author was trumpeting CD-ROM as the technology to “save the trees” only to find out that people using CD-ROM’s liked to print pages. Now, with advanced digital ink for ebooks, no need to print all those pages for better reading, because the better reading is on the ebook reader.

How many companies out there are right now saying, what markets can we move into that are growing and where we can really compete? From consumer electronics to phones and business equipment, many companies can reconfigure existing resources to build ebook readers, peripherals, software, and services. That means more investment in ebooks, and more choices for consumers.


The first time you get one of your favorite ebooks downloaded via wireless connection onto your ebook reader in less than a minute, guaranteed it won’t be your last time. It’s an amazing experience, to suddenly be reading a book, maybe a new book, or a book you have not seen in 5 years, all with no fuss. Order the book, have one sip of tea, and the book is ready.


There are existing devices that do not have the current digital ink technology, but can instantly offer their customers access to books. Though the readability may be an issue, this still serves a purpose of exposing millions of people to the concept of reading ebooks.

With music and movies, there were (and still are) hell-raising arguments between companies and industries involving rights. Books are much cleaner, they are a simpler intellectual property with fewer stakeholders in the actual work. Books are usually written by one person, compare that to the large complex teams creating movies or music.


There are hundreds of thousands of well-known books in the public domain, being offered for free, right now, legally. Whereas we rarely listen to music or watch movies over 50 years old, in fact many classic books that we love were written a long time ago, and still have their charm or use. Think Alice in Wonderland or The Art of War.


Writing and editing 200 pages is hard work, no matter how you look at it – book or ebook. However, just like in music, the theory is that some good authors have not been able to get published because of “the system.” Now, they can Stick It To The Man, independently publish an ebook, and get broad exposure for very little money. Caution: again like in music, independent does not mean “good” – it merely offers a new vehicle for new voices.

Really the book or ebook is just a transmission device. It transmits a long and maybe heartwarming, or possibly informative message – from the author to you. Let’s not forget that. Whatever gets you absorbed into the content in a more dynamic, efficient, informative way, will benefit you. In those departments, ebooks score high. It’s the content, stupid.

1. Why Bangsa Europe interests with Indonesia?

There are some factor that push nation Europe new world searching, entered be next Indonesia draw fires nation struggling Europe, for example:
