A Wonderful Story

Posted by cozyann1974 on January 1, 2008

Friends & Readers,
Today, I’ve just receive a nice story, I am so eagerly wanted to let u all read this. So nice and touchful. This is how human being supposed to live their life….  (anna)

A woman came out of her house and saw 3 old men with long white beards sitting in her front yard. She did not recognize them. She said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have something to eat.” 
“Is the man of the house home?
“, they asked.
“No”, she replied. “He’s out.” 
“Then we cannot come in”, they replied.In the evening when her husband came home, she told him what had happened.
“Go tell them I am home and invite them in!”
The woman went out and invited the men in. 
 
“We do not go into a House together
,” they replied. 
“Why is that?” she asked.
One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and said pointing to another one, “He is Success, and I am Love.” Then he added, “Now go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.” 
 
The woman went in and told her husband what was said. Her husband was overjoyed. “How n ice!!”, he said. “Since that is the case, let us invite Wealth. Let him come and fill our home with wealth!” 
 
His wife disagreed. “My dear, why don’t we invite Success?” 
Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. She jumped in with her own suggestion: “Would it not be better to invite Love? Our home will then be filled with love!” 
“Let us heed our daughter’s advice,” said the husband to his wife.
“Go out and invite Love to be our guest
.”The woman went out and asked the 3 old men, “Which one of you is Love? Please come in and be our guest.” 
 
Love got up and started walking toward the house. The other 2 also got up and followed him. Surprised, t he lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love, Why are you coming in?” 
 
The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would’ve stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever He goes, we go with him. Wherever there is Love, there is also Wealth and Success !!!!!!”

The United Indonesia moves ahead on copyright

Posted by adiew on December 11, 2007

Thanks to Anna, and apologize me since i posted this n the previous one w o  your knowing.

May be there is a bit relevancy to “malasyia atau Indonesia”, Iseng2 siang ini say baca Jakarta post online, disela –sela kejenuhan saya nulis tesis.

GOOD NEWS OR, TOO LATE OR ……… saya hanya copy n paste dari the Jakarta post online tentang rencana the govt to copy right semua yang berhubungan dengan budaya dan seni yang kita miliki. Saya sbg wn indonesial hanya berharap semoga nggak TOO LITTLE TOO LATE… lagi, sehingga tidak terulang kejadian mirip2 sipadan n timor….

 

GOVERNMENT MOVES AHEAD ON COPYRIGHT

Indonesia is preparing an inventory of its traditional and cultural products prior to registering them with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).Director general of intellectual property rights Andy Noorsaman Sommeng said that his directorate would cooperate with local administrations in preparing the inventory. “A national team has been working on this preparation, including the drafting of a law that hopefully will be enacted next year,” he said.

The WIPO is a specialized agency of the United Nations whose goal is to develop a balanced and accessible international intellectual property system. It rewards creativity, stimulates innovation and contributes to economic development while safeguarding the public interest. “Previously, we registered natural heritage products for copyright with UNESCO. Now, we are more intensively focused on traditional cultural products,” Andy said. “We are now shifting to the creativity industry which offers more ideas and innovations,” Andy added.

Indonesia has registered seven properties already, which the world heritage committee of UNESCO considers as having outstanding universal values. Those seven properties are the Borobudur and Prambanan temple compounds; Komodo, Ujung Kulon and Lorentz national parks; the Sangiran early man site; and the tropical rain forests of Sumatra.”Traditional cultural products are now a new issue in our directorate,” said the director of copyright, industrial design and trade secrets at the Directorate General of Intellectual Property Rights, Ansori Sinungan.

“We have to protect our traditional cultural products like traditional songs, dances, games, crafts and rituals by registering them with WIPO,” Ansori said. “And we have to coordinate with local administrations in collecting the inventory of these products, because only the local administrations know what their regions have,” he said. Ansori also said that the purpose of registering the ownership of those products was to protect their economic rights.

“The patent for traditional herbal medicine is one of the examples. Developed countries doing research on our traditional herbs sell their drugs to us while requiring us to pay for the patents,” he said. He said that to promote awareness of the importance of registering copyrights, the directorate launched an information center on intellectual property rights Monday. “The purpose of establishing this information center is to educate the public on the importance of intellectual property rights,” Ansori said

HAPPY EID ADHA

Posted by adiew on December 10, 2007

Facts:

The Best month is – Ramadhan

The Best nights are – the last 10 nights of Ramadhan

The Best days are – The 10 days of Zulhijjah


We are now in the month of Zulhijjah, the month of Haj. This is the month which Allah SWT has bestowed upon it the days of Arafah, Eid Adha, and the Days of Tasyrik which are the 3 days following Eid. This is a special month, a month which we are encouraged to double or triple our efforts in performing our ibadah, our acts of worship, our good deeds.

If we have missed the opportunity to increase our ibadah during the last Ramadan, or if we have missed the opportunity to fast the six days of Syawal, then let it be known, that right now, spread in front of us, is a golden opportunity. An opportunity to be closer to Allah, an opportunity to increase our ibadah.

This golden opportunity, my brothers and sisters, is the first ten days of Zulhijjah. InsyaAllah it will start either tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. So grab this opportunity. Let us do more zikir. Let us do more solat and sawm. Let us recite Al-Quran more. Let us do more act of charity, Allah said in surah Al-Fajr which means: And by the ten days.

According to most scholars, the ten days mentioned in that ayat refer to the first ten days of Zulhijjah. Allah SWT mentioned it and swears by it in that ayat because of its virtues. This is strengthening by the hadith:

(The hadith was narrated by Bukhari and others)

There is no other days in which ibadah is more loved by Allah then these ten days (that is, of the month of Zulhijjah)”.

The companions asked him: O Rasulullah! Even better than jihad in the cause of Allah? The Prophet s.a.w replied: Yes, it is even better than jihad in the cause of Allah, except if one goes out for jihad with his life and his wealth, and he do not return with both.

So, my brothers&sisters in Islam, let us increase our ibadah in these virtuous days.

So let us not waste this golden opportunity, which comes but once in a year. An opportunity that is better than any offer on Earth.
If we look around, sometimes we would see shops offering countdown sales or OBRAL MURAH , We would see everyone is trying to grab that offer of just 15% or 50% discount.

These 10 days of Zulhijjah offer a much better offer. An offer that has its rewards waiting for us in the Hereafter, the day when nothing will be of value except those who had prepared for it. A day which Allah describes in Al-Quran:

Which means: THE DAY WHEN WEALTH AND CHILDREN WILL BE OF NO USE, EXCEPT THOSE WHO COME WITH CLEAN HEARTS.


SELAMAT HARI RAYA IDUL ADHA

Malaysia atau Indonesia?

Posted by cozyann1974 on November 1, 2007

Beberapa hari yang lalu saya menerima email dari milis kantor lama saya, yang isinya menceritakan tentang klaim Malaysia terhadap satu jenis kesenian yang tidak lain “Reog” di Indonesia (oleh Malaysia dinamakan “Barongan”) dan “Gamelan”. Sayang sekali emailnya keburu saya hapus, tapi yang hendak saya utarakan disini adalah keprihatinan saya karena ada kemungkinan Malaysia hendak mempatenkan kedua kesenian tersebut sebagai kebudayaan asli dia (yang oleh penulis email tersebut dipaparkan bahwa jelas jelas Gamelan dan Reog adalah asli dari Indonesia).

Berikut saya sadurkan beberapa tulisan hasil diskusi dalam milis yang saya forward email tsb, semoga juga menggugah hati para pembaca. Read the rest of this entry »
