Actually Silihwarni is a pseudonym. The name was actually the Son of Ngampar Many kejajaan Pajajaran, the younger brother of Raden Kamandaka.

He was by his father, King Siliwangi assigned to search for siblings who have long gone yet again. To overcome the disruption in the way, he provided heirloom kris Kujang Pamungkas as a weapon. And he also disguised with Silihwarni name, and dress like ordinary people.

Because he heard the news that his brother was in the Duchy of Sand Luhur, so he went there. After Silihwarni orders daari Adipatih, he went with some soldiers and followed dogs to the village of Karang area, where Penyabungan chicken.

This place they met. But they had not known anymore. Silihwari dressed as usual raknyat Raden Kamandaka while dressed as a chicken botoh, and his face pale from holding kernduan to his beloved.

Raden Kamandaka kept running towards the east and arrived at a dead end and he gave this place a village name stuck. Raden Kamandaka eventually reached disebuah Goa. In this cave he was resting and hiding from the pursuit Silihwarni. Silihwarni who continue to pursue the cave until he lost track. Then Silihwarnipun from the mouth of the cave called Raden Kamandaka challenging.

After hearing tantagan Silihwarni, Raden Kamandaka he replied saying his identity, that he was the son of the royal Cotro Many Pajajaran name.

After that identity Silihwarnipun said that he was also the son of the Kingdom of Pajajaran, named Many Ngampar. So ayang words between Raden Kamandaka recognition and that they are Silihwarni Pajajaran purta, then the people who hear the name of the version 2, for those Jatijajar caves. Then they both berpeluka and forgive each other.

However, due to take evidence Silihwarni heart and blood Kamandaka Raden, then finally cut tracer dog blood drawn and his heart. It is said that it is the heart and blood that Kamandaka Raden had killed.

Raden Kamandaka then meditated in the cave and get a clue, that the intention to marry Goddess Ciptoroso be achieved if he had got the clothes "Javan" and he was told to get closer to the Duchy of Sand Luhur, namely to settle in the forest Batur Agung, southwest of the rock Raden.

It turned out that the food received by the monkeys are merely food from Ciporoso Goddess, the 'Javan Kasarung "domestic goddess became Ciptoroso. At night, the monkeys are transformed into Kamandaka Raden. Goddess Ciptoroso that only knows about these things. By day he turned into monkeys again. So the situation has become very goddess of joy and happiness, which is always accompanied by Kasarung monkeys.

Once on a day of Nusa Kambangan raden King Discuss Pule told to woo Patihnya Youngest Daughter Goddess Duchy Ciptoroso Luhur Sand and threatened when he refused pinangannya will destroy the Duchy of Sand Luhur.

And finally she mated with a goddess Ciptoroso.

However, due to defects Raden's Kamandaka cockfighting during the taxable kris Silihwarni Kujang Raden Kamandaka Pamungkas then can not replace the king of Padjadjaran.

PostHeaderIcon Eminem-beautiful (lyric)

Eminem has reach top music in mtv with his new song, the song is "beautiful". it reached number 8 of top music mtv. Wanna know the lyric of this song??..
Lately I've been hard to reach I've been too long on my own Everybody has a private world
Where they can be alone
Are you calling me, are you trying to get through
Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you

I'm just so fuckin' depressed I just can seem to get out this slump
If I could just get over this hump
But I need something to pull me out this dump I took my bruises, took my lumps
Fell down and I got right back up But I need that spark to get psyched back up
In order for me to pick the mic back up I don't know how I pry away
And I ended up in this position I'm in I starting to feel distant again
So I decided just to pick this pen
Up and tried to make an attempt to vent
But I just can't admit Or come to grips, with the fact that I may be done with rap
I need a new outlet I know some shits so hard to swallow
And I just can't sit back and wallow
In my own sorrow
But I know one fact I'll be one tough act to follow
One tough act to follow I'll be one tough act to follow
Here today, gone tomorrow
But you have to walk a thousand miles

In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's mind
Just to see what we find
Look at shit through each other's eyes
But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful oh
They can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you so
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
Oh they can all get fucked. Just stay true to you

I think I'm starting to lose my sense of humor
Everything is so tense and gloom
I almost feel like I gotta check the temperature in the room
Just as soon as I walk in
It's like all eyes on me
So I try to avoid any eye contact
'cause if I do that then it opens a door to conversation
Like I want that... I'm not looking for extra attention
I just want to be just like you
Blend in with the rest of the room
Maybe just point me to the closest restroom I don't need no fucking man servant
Trying to follow me around, and wipe my ass
Laugh at every single joke I crack
And half of them ain't even funny like
Ah Marshall, you're so funny man, you should be a comedian, god damn
Unfortunately I am, but I just hide behind the tears of a clown
So why don't you all sit down
Listen to the tale I'm about to tell
Hell, we don't have to trade our shoes
And you don't have to walk no thousand miles


But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
Oh They can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you so
Don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
Oh They can all get fucked. Just stay true to you so

Nobody asked for life to deal us
With these bullshit hands we're dealt
We have to take these cards ourselves
And flip them, don't expect no help
Now I could have either just
Sat on my ass and pissed and moaned
But take this situation in which I'm placed in
And get up and get my own
I was never the type of kid
To wait by the door and pack his bags
Never sat on the porch and hoped and prayed
For a dad to show up who never did
I just wanted to fit in
Every single place
Every school I went
I dreamed of being that cool kid
Even if it meant acting stupid
Aunt Edna always told me
Keep making that face till it gets stuck like that
Meanwhile I'm just standing there
Holding my tongue up trying to talk like this
Till I stuck my tongue on the frozen stop sign poll at 8 years old
I learned my lesson and cause I wasn't trying to impress my friends no more
But I already told you my whole life story
Not just based on my description
'cause where you see it from where you're sitting
Is probably 110% different
I guess we would have to walk a mile
In each other's shoes, at least
What size you where? I wear tens
Let's see if you can fit your feet


Lately I've been hard to reach I've been too long on my own
Everybody has a private world Where they can be alone... so
Are you calling me, are you trying to get through oh
Are you reaching out for me, I'm reaching out for you
so oh oh

Yea... To my babies. Stay strong.
Daddy will be home soon
And to the rest of the world, god gave you the shoes
That fit you, so put em on and wear em
And be yourself man, be proud of who you are
Even if it sounds corny,
Don't ever let no one tell you, you ain't beautiful

PostHeaderIcon Jejaring Sosial dari Google

MOUNTAIN VIEW, KOMPAS.com — Sesuai bocoran yang beredar sehari sebelumnya, perusahaan raksasa internet, Google, akhirnya resmi memperkenalkan layanan jejaring sosial dengan nama Google Buzz. Layanan ini tidak berdiri sendiri, tetapi langsung terintegrasi dengan layanan Gmail mulai Selasa (9/2/2010) dan secara bertahap akan tersedia untuk pengguna Gmail di seluruh dunia.

Jadi, buat pengguna Gmail, siap-siap saja mencoba tanpa harus melakukan instalasi. Buat yang belum punya akun Gmail, tentu harus mendaftarnya terlebih dulu untuk mencoba Google Buzz. Tertarik nge-Buzz? Pelajari dulu apa itu Google Buzz.

Google Buzz menyediakan fitur yang memungkinkan para pemakai Gmail kini dapat dengan cepat berbagi pesan, link situs, dan foto dengan rekan mereka sesama pengguna Gmail. Google menyebutnya berbagi ide karena menyediakan fitur seperti pesan Twitter, tetapi tanpa batasan karakter. Selain itu, juga fitur berbagi foto dan video serta update dari berbagai layanan yang sudah dipakai, seperti Twitter, Picasa, Flickr, dan Google Reader.
Layanan ini juga dapat diakses melalui smartphone, khususnya aplikasi khusus untuk Android, platform terbuka yang dikembangkan Google. Google Buzz juga akan diintegrasikan ke dalam layanan Google Maps sehingga aktivitas sesama pengguna bisa terlihat di peta.
Strategi yang dilakukan Google ini diperkirakan akan memperkuat daya saingnya menghadapi layanan situs jejaring sosial populer, seperti Twitter dan Facebook. Apalagi, menurut riset comScore, Gmail merupakan layanan surat elektronik berbasis web terpopuler ketiga di dunia. Jumlah penggunanya pada Desember 2009 mencapai 176,5 juta. Gmail masih berada di bawah Hotmail milik Microsoft dan e-mail Yahoo yang masing-masing menduduki posisi pertama dan kedua dunia dengan jumlah pengguna 369,2 juta dan 303,7 juta.

Ini juga bukan pertama kali Google merilis layanan jejaring sosial. Pada 2004, Google meluncurkan jejaring sosial Orkut. Berbeda dengan jejaring sosial raksasa Facebook dan MySpace di Amerika Serikat, Orkut hanya berhasil meraih pasar tertentu dunia, seperti Brasil. Google juga meluncurkan Google Wave, layanan baru yang saat ini baru terbatas untuk pengguna yang diundang.

Langkah serupa sebelumnya sudah lebih dulu dilakukan Yahoo! meski belum diketahui seberapa besar tingkat popularitasnya di antara pengguna Yahoo!Mail. Yahoo! juga berusaha mengambil pangsa pasar jejaring sosial dengan meluncurkan Yahoo!Meme atau Yahoo!Mim untuk Indonesia.

PostHeaderIcon Korban Longsor di Pegunungan Hindu Kush Afghanistan Terus Bertambah

Total Terjadi 17 Longsor di Sekitar Kabul

KABUL - Korban bencana longsor di kawasan Pegunungan Hindu Kush di utara Kabul, Afghanistan, yang terjadi Senin pagi lalu (8/2) terus bertambah. Hingga kemarin (10/2), petugas penyelamat beserta sukarelawan berhasil menarik keluar sekitar 160 jenazah dari timbunan salju.

Juru Bicara Kementerian Dalam Negeri Afghanistan Zemeri Bashary mengatakan, di antara total korban meninggal itu, 135 jenazah telah diklaim Provinsi Parwan. Sisanya dibawa ke Baglan di bagian selatan.

Menteri Dalam Negeri Mohammad Hanif Atmarseperti, dikutip The New York Times, mengatakan bahwa badai dan hujan deras memblokade jalanan di sisi pegunungan. Angin kencang dan hujan lebat juga mengguyur Kabul dan menyebabkan 17 musibah longsor di sepanjang jalur di sekitar area pegunungan setinggi 3.800 meter tersebut.

Terakhir, insiden longsor mengubur terowongan Salang Pass dengan panjang sekitar 3,5 kilometer. Bencana itu juga memblokade sebagian besar ruas jalan di jalur yang menghubungkan Kabul dengan wilayah utara Kabul itu. Diperkirakan lebih dari 150 orang tewas dan 84 luka-luka di kawasan tersebut.

Otoritas Afghanistan telah menerjunkan 500 tentara untuk membantu polisi melakukan operasi penyelamatan. Sebanyak 400 petugas polisi dan 100 sukarelawan bekerja sama mengeruk salju guna menemukan korban longsor. Selain menggunakan alat berat, ada sukarelawan yang hanya memakai sarung tangan untuk menggali salju.

Bantuan juga datang dari NATO berupa kendaraan pembantu. Di antaranya, 4 unit helikopter Chinook, beberapa ambulans, dan buldoser. Militer Afghanistan juga mengeluarkan dua helikopter yang datang setiap beberapa menit untuk mengangkut jenazah.

Bashary dalam konferensi pers di Kabul juga melaporkan bahwa petugas telah berhasil membersihkan jalan hingga radius 2,5 kilometer. Hal itu dilakukan agar kendaraan pembantu berupa ambulans, buldoser, dan peralatan pembersih jalan yang lain bisa memasuki kawasan tersebut. Hingga kemarin, petugas penyelamat telah mengevakuasi 2.600 orang yang terjebak dalam longsor di sekitar pegunungan itu.

Selasa lalu (9/2) Menteri Pertahanan Jenderal Abdul Rahim Wardak melaporkan, pasukan Afghanistan telah mengevakuasi lebih dari 400 korban luka. Setidaknya 180 korban luka diangkut dengan helikopter koalisi ke pangkalan udara Bagram untuk mendapatkan perawatan medis. Kebanyakan korban luka dilarikan ke Rumah Sakit Parwan di dekat Charikar. Setidaknya 11 anak-anak terpisah dari keluarganya karena longsor.

Presiden Hamid Karzai melalui petugas pemerintahan menyerukan kepada tim penyelamat menggunakan seluruh peralatan yang ada untuk membersihkan jalan. Juga, menyelamatkan orang yang terjebak.

''Saat ini cuaca bagus. Jadi, kami akan mencoba menemukan lebih banyak korban. Kebanyakan (jasad) kami temukan (tertimbun) di bawah salju. Longsor amat kuat hingga mendorong mobil sekitar 200 yard (182 meter) dari jalan,'' papar seorang petugas pemerintahan Karzai kepada The New York Times.

Terowongan Salang Pass dibangun Uni Soviet pada 1960-an. Terowongan tersebut memiliki sejarah panjang. Beberapa bencana pernah terjadi di terowongan itu, termasuk kebakaran dan ledakan. Sedikitnya jumlah ventilasi juga kerap menjadi masalah terowongan itu.

JAKARTA - Sepasang komodo koleksi Taman Margasatwa Ragunan (TMR) Jakarta Selatan ''pindah rumah''. Kemarin (10/2), binatang yang diyakini sebagai sisa makhluk purba itu dikirim ke Nyireghazi Allatpark Sosto Zoological Park, Hungaria.

Bogol, yang jantan, memiliki berat 125 kilogram. Sementara bobot Indri, si betina, 80 kilogram. Rencananya, kedua binatang itu terbang dari Bandara Soekarno-Hatta sekitar pukul 10.00. "Perjalanan Indonesia-Hungaria memakan waktu 20 jam. Transit di Amsterdam lalu melanjutkan perjalanan ke tujuan," katanya.

Dalam pemberangkatan menuju Bandara Soekarno-Hatta pagi kemarin, puluhan staf Kementrian Kehutanan dan pawang Ragunan sempat melepasnya.

Sebagai penukaran dari Hungaria, TMR mendapatkan 17 hewan langka khas negeri itu. Di antaranya dua pasang lemur ekor cincin, tiga ekor burung onta, dua pasang kapucin, dua pasang mammorset, dan sepasang zebra.
