96 orang Indonesia terima beasiswa "Fulbright"

>

Bersekolah keluar negeri tentu saja perlu persiapan. Persiapan biaya, mental, fisik serta seabrek proses administrasi dari apply universitas hingga bikin visa. Melelahkan memang, namun tiaptahun ada ratusan pelamar yang ingin kuliah di luar negeri, baik dengan biaya sendiri atau dengan beasiswa.


Kuliah di luar negeri, terutama ke Negara-negara maju semacam Jepang, Eropa dan Amerika menjadi semacam impian tersendiri bagi sebahagian pencari ilmu di Indonesia. Adalah fakta tersendiri bahwa Indonesia masih berada di posisi negara berkembang, dimana institusi pendidikannya tentu saja masih berkembang.

Two Thumbs Up for Teungku Sayyid Deqy

>

 
Korpus Mapur

I have been reading “Korpus Mapur dalam Islamisasi Bangka”, a book by Teungku Sayyid Deqy, an ordinary man from Belinyu, North Bangka that working as a staff of clinical center company in Pangkal pinang. His great works resulted in more 580 pages, full of raw information about myth, legend, oral stories, pictures, writen information or a lot of transcripts about early Islamization in Bangka.


I adore this man, his research inspired us not only about early research in Bangka but also his greatest motivation to write history, which less people would do it. Commonly, this kind of research wasted a lot of money, plus this long research took long time and physic endurance. His eight years research inspired us that great works need more consistency and comittment than as most people did as ussual.
