RIMANEWS  - Sekelompok peneliti mengatakan, usia atau umur seseorang bisa diketahui melalui melalui kecepatan jalan mereka. Benarkah? Dikutip dari My Health News Daily, para peneliti mengatakan, bahwa mereka yang kecepatan jalannya sekitar 1 meter per detik (3,6 km per jam) atau lebih cepat dan konsisten memiliki kemungkinan hidup lebih lama ketimbang mereka yang kecepatan jalannya lamban.

Dr Stephanie Studenski, profesor di University of Pittsburgh mengungkapkan bahwa kapasitas seseorang untuk bergerak dengan cekatan dan kuat merefleksikan vitalitas serta kesehatannya. Namun, para periset menekankan bahwa tujuan studi ini bukan untuk membuat semua orang untuk berjalan lebih cepat supaya panjang umur.

The Fading Dream of Europe

By Orhan Pamuk

In the schoolbooks I read as a child in the 1950s and 1960s, Europe was a rosy land of legend. While forging his new republic from the ruins of the Ottoman Empire, which had been crushed and fragmented in World War I, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk fought against the Greek army, but with the support of his own army he later introduced a slew of social and cultural modernization reforms that were not anti- but pro-Western. It was to legitimize these reforms, which helped to strengthen the new Turkish state’s new elites (and were the subject of continuous debate in Turkey over the next eighty years), that we were called upon to embrace and even imitate a rosy-pink—occidentalist—European dream.

Penampakan sesosok penungggang kuda saat demo Mesir

Do youtube.com saat ini sedang hot tentang penampakan kuda dan penunggangnya pada saat kerusuhan Mesir beberapa waktu lalu. Di dalam video itu, yang diambil dari beberapa stasiun tv yang menyiarkan secara langsung kegiatan demonstrasi besar-besaran di Mesir., terlihat sesosok kuda dan penunggangnya yang berwarna kehijauan bercahaya berjalan di antara kerumunan massa dan kemudian terbang tepat pada saat terjadi letusan bom dan kobaran api. Mungkinkah ini sesosok malaikat?

Original article from thisamerican life on Coca cola's recipe


Inilah artikel pertama yang ditulis oleh laman thisamericanlife.org yang memuat episode Original Recipe Coca cola yang kemudian dikutip oleh berbagai laman di dunia termasuk di Indonesia.


ORIGINAL RECIPE

Originally aired 02.11.2011
The formula for Coca-Cola is one of the most jealously guarded trade secrets in the world. Locked in a vault in Atlanta. Supposedly unreplicable. But we think we may have found the original recipe. And to see if the formula actually might be Coke, we made a batch. Or, anyway, we asked the folks at Jones Soda and Sovereign Flavors to whip up some up, to see if it tastes like Coke. The recipe is here.
