Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World

Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World. Who is not familiar with the island of Komodo dragons! Since the entry into N7Wonders finalists, Komodo island is now visited by both local and foreign tourists. Unfortunately, the number of local tourists visiting the island of Komodo is much less than foreign tourists. This is due to lack of promotion of tourism in Komodo island and domestic long distance is not less costly to get to this place.

Travel to the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World can be done via land, sea or air. For those of you who like adventure or backpacker’s, you should try to land routes that will be around most of the province of Nusa Tenggara. The experience that you will make yourself feel more rigid and patience in life. Why? because the latency time-consuming and you must be willing to mutually transport with a time of uncertainty. Well, for those of you who do not like to bother, you should use the air route from the airport soetta-Bali-Labuan Bajo at much more expensive. Heard from some media that the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World will be removed from 27 finalists N7Wonders make my heart jumped. Honestly, I was shocked at the news. Various questions came to mind me “why? how come? What is wrong? “and after I read further information from the media, I realized it turns out to be one of the finalists N7W requires great cost and sacrifice. I again remembered my trip a few days ago to the island of Komodo.

I and some of my friends do the ‘expedition’ to the small eastern Indonesia. Honestly, I was one who greatly admired the charm and natural beauty of East Indonesia, which saves a million natural charm, tradition and culture are still very natural and far from civilization touch of modernization. Unfortunately, the beauty of nature is very far from the word ‘beautiful and appropriate’ in terms of regional development and management undertaken half-heartedly. Consequently, if we want to visit the tourist attractions, extortion and other costs as well as the number of fraudulent acts committed by various groups making the most of Indonesian people choose to holiday abroad is certainly a huge cost but give a sense of security, comfort and free of hidden costs. My journey to the Komodo Island is the NEW 7 Wonders of The World. Me and a friend of mine went from Bandung to Yogyakarta by train. In Yogyakarta, we met other friends who would do the same journey with us. Be ten of us and began our journey using bus. A very long trip and long made me realize how big Indonesia and will never succeed me go one by one. Almost half of East Indonesia succeeded in our crawl and this is a pride for me.

After take as long as 69 hours, we also arrived at Labuan Bajo, one of the inhabited islands in the Komodo Islands. Here I see the building is not a government priority. Evidenced by the high prices of basic goods due to the chaotic distribution channels of goods, plus more, the island is located very far from everywhere. When studied further, tourism on the island of Komodo enough to produce huge amounts of funds. But, why the life of ordinary people? I mean, with the amount of local revenue from tourism alone could be ascertained that these funds can be used to develop the area so as not left behind as many islands in Indonesia.

I moved to SimCity back in 1993. Back then it was a raw place. There were barely any police departments and you never wanted to get home after midnight. But even though the neighborhood was dangerous and the property values were perpetually low due to the proximity to a nuclear power plant, it…

Okay, so hypothetically speaking… let’s say you were, oh I don’t know, hanging out in Ana Lucia’s Tiger Pit… and you suddenly remember you need to get to the Hydra for a breakfast meeting with Ben. Here’s the route I’d take:I’d, of course, hop on the Purple Line A Train, westbound to the Tailies crash site, switch to the M Train southbound to The Staff. Then I’d switch to the Blue Line P Train northbound loop to the Drug Plane, where I’d switch to the Green Line south… any of those trains will get you there… except maybe the R… I think it only runs on weekends.

Response to Olbermann: ‘People of color’ at Tea Parties

So last night that race-peddlin’ buffoon over at MSNBC… wait, that’s pretty much everyone on that network. Let me be more specific. OK, so, last night Keith Olbermann used his self-parodying Special Comment segment to ask the following question: Where are the people of color at the Tea Parties? Now, implying and outright saying that Tea Party protesters are racist is commonplace in the far left. No news there. But two things in particular bother me about his question:

First, his choice of words. People of color? Who are these colored people he’s referring to? What does that mean? It may be because I’m not a native English speaker, but I find this “people of color” business to be really bizarre. So as a Boricua, am I colored? I guess I’m olive but if I hit the beach on a sunny day I can be golden brown. Is he referring strictly to skin color? Culture? Ethnicity? I mean, I’m not that much darker than Mr. Olbermann himself. Do I fall into his “people of color” category? 

Or, as I suspect, are “people of color” just code for those who deviate too much from the skin color which Olbermann seems to deem as the standard? I mean, come on, Olbermann has no color, right? He’s white. That ain’t no color. That’s just how it’s supposed to be, right? So, all I can think of is that he means “black.” Black people are colored, and everyone else is just normal and a-OK. Man, this race and colors stuff is difficult to understand!

And secondly, the question is stupid, the premise terribly moronic and the insinuation totally insulting. The Tea Party protesters aren’t racist. Are there a few kooks with nefarious motivations? Sure, every movement has them. It’s nice how, during the Bush years, the MSM did everything they could to whitewash the fringe elements of the antiwar movement, but I digress. What’s Olbermann’s evidence that Tea Parties are overwhelmingly racist? Apparently, that there are no “people of color” at these rallies. That is so blatantly false as to induce uncontrollable laughter. There are people of all backgrounds at the Tea Parties. But even if an event is dominated by a certain race group, what does that prove? Similar to what Glenn Reynolds said earlier this month, if you look at a group of white folks and the first thought that pops into your head is “racists!” then you have some serious issues.

So I put together this video response to Olbermann’s burning question. Here are his “people of color” he’s been inquiring about.

While I’m currently cooking my own thoughts on Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 Series, Paul Thurrott has actually gotten to touch it before Microsoft’s MIX10 conference. While reading his quick review (where he proclaims his love) I found him bring up the issue of it not supporting copy and paste.

There have been weird complaints this week, and you can almost feel the anti-Microsoft brigade chipping away at the patina of perfection that Microsoft has tried to erect around its new baby. The multitasking is limited. Users will only be able to get apps from the Marketplace, and not from third parties. Gasp! Is it true that there’s no copy and paste?
