    Tips Makan Sehat Sebelum Ujian 

    When you’re studying for finals, good nutrition often slides way down on the priority list. It’s easy to get into the habit of glugging coffee and gobbling take-out pizza, because you don’t want to waste time on food preparation. But, actually, good nutrition should be part of your study plan because it’s going to help you ace those tests. The better the fuel your brain gets, the better you’ll study. It’s a…well…no-brainer.

    Here are 10 tips for eating right during exams:

    1. How do I eat smarter? Meeting daily vitamin and mineral requirements will make doing your best much easier. Iron and B vitamins are especially important to maintaining the physical and mental energy necessary to study well. Iron-containing foods include red meat, cereals and spinach; one good meal idea is chili because it contains ground beef and kidney beans. Foods that contain B vitamins include whole-grains, wheat germ, eggs and nuts. Fish and soy are other foods that are said to help boost your brain by providing the nutrients it needs.
    2. Dude, chewable Vitamin C is not a meal. Dietary supplements are good, but real food is better. An orange contains not only Vitamin C, but  also fiber, beta carotene and other minerals — so it can’t be replaced by a pill. When you’re heading for the library, pack whole-food items like apples, bananas, clementines, carrot sticks or dried apricots.
    3. Eat at regular intervals. Eating regular meals helps keep nutrient and energy levels more stable, curbing the temptation of empty-calorie snacks in the vending machine.
    4. Big meals keep on turning … in your stomach. You might find that eating the standard three-big-meals-a-day slows you down mentally and physically. Consider 5 or 6 well-balanced, smaller meals, like toast spread with peanut butter, hummus or tuna, or a piece of cheese with fruit.
    5. Meet breakfast, your new study buddy. While much is said about the reasons to eat breakfast, less known are the best ways to eat smart in the morning. Coffee and a donut just don’t cut it. The idea is to get some protein, calcium, fibre and a piece of fruit or a vegetable in there. So, a bowl of cereal with milk and a piece of fruit would do the trick. Or try a cereal bar with milk. We have some additional quick breakfast ideas for you to enjoy!
    6. Going bananas? Good. Fruit ranks high among the best foods you can eat for your brain. Blueberries (which can be bought frozen in bags) get a lot of attention because they contain powerful antioxidants and other nutrients. The natural sugars in fruit offer clean energy, so you don’t experience the crash that follows consumption of refined sugar.
    7. Choose powerful vegetables. Not all vegetables are created equal. The darker the color, the higher the concentration of nutrients. For example, spinach has more to offer the mind and body than iceberg lettuce. Other great vegetable choices include bell peppers, broccoli and sweet potatoes.
    8. Smart snacking can enhance studying. Snack smart while studying and you may find that you retain more. Try to get two food groups into your snacks to balance the nutrients and keep your blood-sugar level stable. Some smart snack examples are banana with peanut butter, a small baked potato with cottage cheese, or an English muffin pizza.
    9. Gather simple recipes for nourishing foods. It’s easy to feed the brain well. No-fuss recipes let you eat to succeed, without taking too much time. Here are four ideas:

      • Combine scrambled eggs with toast, cheese or salsa
      • Spend 15 minutes preparing chili and continue studying while it simmers for two hours
      • Go Tex Mex with quesadillas, adding whatever veggies you’ve got on hand
      • A little chopping is all it takes to construct a hearty Chef’s Salad
    10. Stay well hydrated. Choose your beverages well, though.  Caffeine and sugar should be kept to a minimum. Since too much caffeine can make you jittery, try to drink moderate amounts: 400 to 450 mg per day, the equivalent of 2/2.5 cups, (16 to 20 ounces or 500 to 625 ml). Better choices include water, fruit juice, milk, and anti-oxidant-rich green tea.

    Good luck!

    SiLo (Sisi Lain Solo) 

    logo-solo

       Solo “The spirit of Java” begitulah kota seluas 44,03 km2 ini sering disebut. Kota unik dengan banyak objek wisata, budaya maupun event-event yang menarik.

      Berbagai objek wisata mulai dari Kraton Surakarta, Istana Mangkunegaran, Museum Radya Pustaka, Taman Satwa Taru Jurug, Taman Sriwedari dan masih banyak lagi yang menarik untuk dikunjungi.

       Wisata Nongkrong/tempat makan di kota solo juga tak kalah seru. Beberapa tempat seperti Lesehan Kota Barat, Lesehan Stadion Manahan, Keprabon (Tempat makan nasi liwet), Pujasari Sriwedari, Jagung Bakar, dan C Meal Seafood bisa menjadi lokasi yang patut dicoba.

    Kalau dari tadi yang dibahas sepertinya hal-hal yang biasa saja ya ngakak , lalu apa sih sisi lainnya ? bingung

       Tahukah sejak batik diresmikan sebagai kebudayaan asli milik bangsa indonesia pada oleh PBB pada tanggal 2 Oktober 2009, Solo jadi semakin gencar melakukan pagelaran batik ?

       Sebagai dampaknya, banyak pesanan batik baik dari domestik maupun mancanegara. Batik pun terus menerus diproduksi. Batik yang dihasilkan juga indah-indah dan menarik. Namun dibalik cantiknya batik yang dihasilkan ada dampaknya lho. Limbah yang dihasilkan dari produksi batik jadi problem tersendiri buat kota solo.

       Limbah yang dihasilkan dari produksi batik itu terdiri dari 2, limbah padat dan limbah cair.  Untuk limbah padat sudah didaur ulang dan dapat dimanfaatkan kembali menjadi kerajinan tangan yang unik, tapi untuk limbah cair yang berasal dari bahan pewarna kimia kebanyakan belum di daur ulang sebelum dibuang. Limbah-limbah tersebut langsung saja dibuang ke sungai tanpa perasaan bersalah. Padahal dari pemerintah sudah mewajibkan bagi para pengusaha batik untuk menerapkan instalasi pengolahan air limbah (IPAL) di sistem pembuangan limbahnya. Namun karena mahal dan hasil olahan limbah cair tersebut tidak memiliki kegunaan apapun, banyak pengusaha yang mengabaikannya. Alhasil pencemaran sungai pun semakin menjadi..

                                 Pencemaran Sungai Bengawan Solo

    Semoga para pengusaha segera sadar dan mau menerpakan IPAL di sistem pembuangan limbahnya. Karena kita ini hidup juga tergantung pada alam, kalau alamnya rusak, air bersih makin langka, ikan-ikan pada mati..bukankah kita yang akan susah juga ?,

    Way Back Into Love- Hugh Grant 

    monkturner_lovestory

    I’ve been living with a shadow overhead
    I’ve been sleeping with a cloud above my bed
    I’ve been lonely for so long
    Trapped in the past, I just can’t seem to move on

    I’ve been hiding all my hopes and dreams away
    Just in case I ever need em again someday
    I’ve been setting aside time
    To clear a little space in the corners of my mind

    All I wanna do is find a way back into love
    I can’t make it through without a way back into love
    Oh oh oh

    I’ve been watching but the stars refuse to shine
    I’ve been searching but I just don’t see the signs
    I know that it’s out there
    There’s got to be something for my soul somewhere

    I’ve been looking for someone to shed some light
    Not somebody just to get me through the night

    I could use some direction
    And I’m open to your suggestions

    All I wanna do is find a way back into love
    I can’t make it through without a way back into love
    And if I open my heart again
    I guess I’m hoping you’ll be there for me in the end
    oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    There are moments when I don’t know if it’s real
    Or if anybody feels the way I feel
    I need inspiration
    Not just another negotiation

    All I wanna do is find a way back into love
    I can’t make it through without a way back into love
    And if I open my heart to you
    I’m hoping you’ll show me what to do
    And if you help me to start again
    You know that I’ll be there for you in the end
    oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    Arti Cinta – Ari Lasso 

    arti cinta yang sesungguhnya
    kan kau dapat dari diriku
    meski aku bukanlah
    lelaki yang kau impi-impikan

    bukan kata apalagi harta
    tubuh jiwa pasti untukmu
    yang ku punya sejuta cinta
    yang kan membuatmu bahagia

       karna ku tahu yang kau butuh hanya cinta

    reff: selama jantungku masih berdetak
    selama itu pula engkau milikku
    selama darahku masih mengalir
    cintaku pasti takkan pernah berakhir

    segalanya bisa kau punya
    tapi apa arti hidupmu
    tanpa cinta di dalam hati
    pasti tubuhmu tak bermakna

       sambutlah aku dengar bisikan hatimu

    repeat reff

       sambutlah aku dengar bisikan hatimu

    repeat ref

       temukanlah arti cinta sejati di dalam cintaku
