Kopi Darat as a way to prevent fraud In E-commerce

 

kaskus website. The largest Indonesian community

Kopi Darat in English literally means ‘ground coffee’, but it is actually a term that refers to meeting in person between consumer to consumer when they used e-commerce services for trading. Internet users are familiar with this term especially young people who are active users of e-commerce and internet In Indonesia. Kopi darat as an e-commerce term was firstly used by Kaskusers, a term to refer netizens who are active in Kaskus forums. It has affected other e-commerce websites ever since. “As matter a fact, E-commerce rate is raising from 3% in 2009 and became 6% in July 2012. The value of E-commerce was gaining 290 dollar AS,” according to Andi Surja Boediman, Presiden Direktur Ideoworks (Kompas 05/06/2012).

Kaskus is the most famous E-commerce forum in Indonesia, we can find almost everything including expensive items such as handphone, tablet, Laptop, Camera SLR, and etc. Those expensive items are the main factors that created the term of Kopi Darat. Basically, internet users are doing kopi darat only when they need to buy expensive stuff that cost from Rp 500.000 and above. Unfortunately, Indonesia doesn’t have secure payment system yet for E-commerce, event some website have their own payment systems nowadays to prevent online trading fraud but internet user’s were creating their own way to feel safe by meet in person. I think internet generations was a smart buyers that build their own way to prevent the risk. Besides creating a kopi darat system, buyers also reported their opinion and comment on each seller whether positive or bad, as a tool to helping others being smart buyers. Meanwhile, for cheap product with the possibility of losing a big amount of money is small, buyers were not creating any protection and kopi darat system become unimportant.

What did they do basically is simple, buyer and seller will arrange the meeting place and time for doing Kopi Darat, then buyers will take a look the condition and having a moment to try the function in details. If a buyer doesn’t like the items condition then the trade process will be over in stage I. Stage II is price negotiation that will take several minutes, the trade could be over if the price didn’t match between them. Stage III is about how to deliver the money. If buyers were willing to pay in cash then the seller will sit in their place and hold the items until the buyers coming back from ATM with cash money. Most sellers prefer to get non cash so both of them were going to the ATM together, after the seller get the ATM receipt then buyers will get the items. Stage 4 is shake hand moment as the symbol of the end of the kopi darat process. Kopi darat now becomes part of life style for internet users. It is also considered as a habit that exists since E-commerce began in Indonesia.

High School Student Created a Purifying Tool for Contaminated Water in Sidoarjo

http://pungkyhertantoph.blogspot.com

Sidoarjo water resources have been contaminated by the mudflow caused by PT Lapindo-Brantas for almost 6 years. Since that, Sidoarjo citizens were complaining their contaminated water resources, which are very important for daily needs such as drinking, washing, and bathing.

Pungky Hertanto, a high school student from a small town Mojokerto, who actually living near to mudflow areas, found a technology to clean the water pollution. His innovation brings him to be the first winner of the national scientific innovation competition last September 2012.

Pungky developed water-purifying equipment by testing water from six different resources. He checked out the water temperature, color, smell, and the bacterium to find out how bad the mud has contaminated the water. After that, he bought some equipment to build water-purifying equipment that costs him Rp 100.000.

With only small amount of money, he bought zeolit to reduce the water smell, manganese greensand to reduce iron and bacterium, and dry bagasse as water purifier. He made a pipe as the water goes to get clean, with electricity help and ultra violet lamp to make it prefect. He made a tool that looks like a shoot gun and he named it as SPAT, a short for Sistem Penjernih Air Terintegrasi (Integrated Water-Purifying System).

  As a result, after using SPAT, the water quality in two sampling areas are successfully clean based on the Ministry of Health’ standard. However, the rest water resources are not fully clean, the cleanliness level is only around 61% – 77%. Although his innovation is not perfect yet, Pungky is quite satisfied with the result. In the future he will create better tools in big scale for Sidoarjo citizens, so they will have more clean water resources for daily life usage.

This innovation might look ordinary because a high school student invented it and the effects of the result can only be seen in small scale. However, if the government helps with better research and funding aspects, the SPAT water purifier can be developed further and in big scale so the effects will be bigger and there will be more Sidoarjo citizens that can enjoy clean water for their daily lives.

In my opinion, if the government supports this kind of invention, there will be more high school students like Pungky who will create and innovate useful things out of the knowledge that they get from school. More students will be more eager to apply their knowledge to the society and help improving many people’s lives, as well as earning achievements in their early teenage.

Yuk, Kenalan dengan Pakaian Dalam Papua!

“If you don’t know history, then you don’t know anything”

Sukses menemukan benda sejarah yang sarat budaya, yaitu lemari kaca yang berisikan pakaian dalam  di daerah Papua jaman dulu. Now they start to use our clothes even in several remote areas of Papua, this kind of underwear and bra’s are still existing. Seketika saya tertawa terbahak-bahak sambil membayangkan apa jadinya jika saya hidup di masa ataupun daerah yang menggunakan kain anyaman kulit kayu sebagai penutup dada, gatal-gatalkah?

Women and bra are like two best friends, no matter what.. they stay close to each others just like paper and glue. Jika mengetik di kotak search google mengenai asal bra, hasilnya selalu saja dikaitkan dengan perempuan Perancis yang disebut-sebut sebagai penemu bra for the first time, I believe her name was Mary Jacob. Literary bra in France language means upper arm. Mary created bra dari sapu tangan yang dipercantik dengan pita dan tali pada tahun 1913. Saat itu brackless bra milik Mary berjaya karena belum ada competitor, hingga tahun 1922, Ida Rosenthal dan Enid Bissett, menambahkan “cup” pada bra dengan berbagai macam ukuran yang dapat memperindah bentuk payudara wanita.

Lantas bagaimana bra bisa eksis di Indonesia? Tahukah Anda bahwa bra adalah salah satu peninggalan jajahan belanda untuk kita. Bra modern dibawa oleh noni Belanda yang menetap di Indonesia ketika jaman penjajahan. Negara Perancis yang berbatasan langsung dengan Belanda turut memberikan pengaruh terhadap perkembangan pakaian dalam negara kincir angin. Jika Perancis menggunakan kata bra, Belanda menyebutnya dengan kata BH, singkatan dari ‘Buste Hounder‘ yang berarti pemegang / penyangga payudara. Semenjak kehadiran noni-noni Belanda, perempuan Indonesia kala itu meniru BH untuk dikenakan di balik kebaya, bahkan penyebutan kata BH masih eksis hingga sekarang.

Pakain Dalam Pria (dok.dynaputri)

Benda yang terbuat dari logam dan perunggu berfungsi sebagai celana dalam pria, namun hanya menutupi area “penting”-nya saja. Fiiiuuuh untung saja, UU pornografi  belum digalakkan di daerah tertinggal.

Emm, coba bandingkan deh gambar  pakaian dalam pria satu dan dua. There is a big differences right? I think, pakaian dalam pria pada perkembangannya sama seperti bra yang  akhirnya punya banyak ukuran. Berhubung hanya ada 2 tipe ukuran logam maupun perunggu pada masa itu, saya pun mengambil kesimpulan bahwa  hanya ada 2 tipe pria, yang pertama si pendek tapi lebar dan  kedua si panjang namun agak kurus. Well.. kalau ada yang nemu si panjang dan juga lebar, itu berarti bonus. Hihihi

Bagaimanapun, baju tradisional  adalah cermin budaya yang harusnya dibiarkan saja. Tidak usah memaksakan  suatu daerah tertinggal menggunakan pakaian seperti yang kita gunakan, biarkan mereka berkembang dengan sendirinya sesuai dengan cara hidup mereka masing-masing.

Hijabers Community, a Stylish Moslem Phenomenom

New way of wearing veil
http://reshoppe.blogspot.com

Known as the biggest Moslem country in the world, there is no wonder that one can see Moslem women wearing veils almost everywhere in Indonesia. Wearing veil is one of the obligations for Moslem women to get God’s willing in their lives. The main points of wearing it is to look modest and to be protected from sexual harassment. Although it upholds religious values, wearing veils used to be closely related to be the dressing style of old or mature Moslem women. In another situation, women wear veils after they get married. It happens because wearing veils needs a personal commitment between a woman and God. Those who are not ready for that religious commitment will find it difficult to wear polite long dress and veil that don’t show any of her body curve nor hair. This kind of dressing is known as jilbab. Because of the rules for wearing jilbab, many women prefer wearing veils after they get married.

As time goes by, many Indonesian women wear veils now. Instead of jilbab, they prefer wearing hijab. Hijab has replaced jilbab and currently becomes the new way of dressing for young Moslem women, even teenagers. Hijab and jilbab basically have the same meaning, which is to cover women and protect them from unwanted treatments. However, hijab style offers bright colors like pink or yellow, various veil creation, two-piece kind of dresses that sometimes show the body curve because the outfits are not too loose like conventional jilbab ones.

Hijabers, a nick for women who wear hijabs, are often seen young, fresh, fashionable and cool. Their style has become trending since last year and it seems that more and more young Moslem women wear hijabs because of them. More surprisingly, in 2012 several hijabers went online and established a community for hijabers named Hijabers Community (HC). Hijabers community established in every big cities such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Bandung, and etc. They have made tutorial videos on how to stylize the veil and posted them on blog, and as well shared the latest hijab style, fashion tips, life events, community reports, and memberships. Not only being active online, HC also compiled the hijab tutorial photos into books. The books are now displayed in best-selling section in bookstores all over Jakarta. Their event also corporate with famous local brand such as Wardah cosmetics.  From what I see, Internet has united the hijabers and turned them into the new walking fashion icons in daily life. Before hijabers exist like nowadays, women had to go to the market to buy veils and the style are so freakin boring. Now they can buy veils and stylish Moslem hijabs with various colors and fashionable-gorgeous style through online shops.
