Australian Adventure, Part 3

first_imgBefore there were drug stores, people turned to plants for their healing properties. The land provided organic medicine to native cultures. Bush tucker, or bushfood, is the term used in Australia to describe the plants used by the aboriginal people for culinary or medicinal purposes dating back nearly 60,000 years.I visited three of the six Australian states: Victoria, southeast; New South Wales, northeast of Victoria; and Queensland, north eastern. Of these three states, I took two separate bush walk guided tours, at Cape Otway, Victoria, and Cairns, Queensland. It amazed me the variety of plants used for every day ailments.Here are five examples:1. Lemongrass roots and stems, such as the popular scented Lemon Myrtle, were popular to treat myriad ailments. Once liquified, drinking it treated sore throats, colds, and coughs. This plant also cured headaches and migraines with the same strength as modern-day aspirin. A headache sufferer, I kept a handful on me for a few days to put it to the test — and it worked!2. Eucalyptus is for more than just hungry koalas. Its antibacterial properties were widely used for dental health, including mouthwash, cough, and throat ailments.3. Before modern-day female contraception, aborigine women used to seek out the Kangaroo Apple for birth control.4. Tea tree oil, paper bark, would be applied to wounds for its antiseptic benefits, which helped to clear acne.5. The sandpaper fig and stinking passion flower were used hand-in-hand for insect bites. The fig, which has a rough, scratchy feel, would be rubbed against the skin until it bled. Then, the flower would be applied to relieve the itch. The sandpaper fig was additionally used to cure ringworm and other wounds.We so easily take for granted that, when we are in pain, we can pop a pill to alleviate our problems. Everything is within arm’s reach or just down the road. Modern medicine is convenient, but is it as healthy as primitive ways, used long before scientific research?A society that once worked based on an honor code of take what you need and trade what you believe is of equal value. Indigenous ways were so simple and natural in comparison to the world we live in today. Maybe not all of us can heal ourselves in our backyards, yet, but once I learned the ways of the Earth, it opened my eyes to the possibilities.nicole@indyeastend.com@NikkiOnTheDaily Sharelast_img read more

Where credit is due

first_imgWhile the online renewals process for practising certificates was confusing and highly stressful for many of us, the SRA deserves credit for the way in which some of its staff handled individual complaints and concerns. With large organisations and online services it is usually impossible to find a human being who cares, but I think it is only fair to say that people at the SRA, once you have a name and an email contact, can be very helpful. So frequently, all that is required is a call from an organisation which pre-empts all the debilitating on-hold messages (and music) and the build-up of angst which this creates. It’s quite disarming to receive an unexpected call from a person checking if everything is going to plan with some guidance and a direct number if that is not the case. The SRA got that right, and perhaps the system will settle down after the initial hullabaloo… and thanks to those individuals concerned.

Negrense Morallo lifts Loyola to retain spotless PH League slate

first_img[/av_textblock][/av_one_full] [av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”] MANILA – Jake Morallo scored the go-ahead goal as the Loyola Meralco Sparks Football Club-Manila edged Ilocos-United Football Club, 2-1, in the 2017 Philippine Football League at the Rizal Memorial Football Stadium.Morallo, a fixture for the Negros football team, fired the game-winning goal early in the second half for the Loyola Meralco Sparks, which came from a 5-1 win over the Stallion Football Club-Laguna a week ago.“We expected a tough match. It was psychological for our team and that of the opponent primarily because a number of player from Ilocos used to play for this team,” said Loyola Meralco Sparks head coach Aris Caslib.It was the Ilocos United who got the lead early in the game following a conversion by Graham Caygill in the 13th minute. But that edge did not stay long as Tyler Matas fired his own goal five minutes later to equalize the score.After a conversion by Morallo, Ilocos-United had multiple chances to tie the count but the favored Loyola Meralco Sparks tightened its defense forcing its opponent to have wayward shots.With the victory, Loyola Meralco Sparks has gained the early lead in the standings with a 3-0 for six points, while Ilocos-United remained in the middle of the standings with one point following a draw last week against the Davao team.Meanwhile, Global Football Club-Cebu recovered from an early deficit to score a 2-1 victory over JP Voltes Football Club-Marikina at the Biñan Football Stadium.Philippine Azkals mainstays Amani Aguinaldo and Paul Mulders scored a goal each to lead the way for Global, while it was Odawara Takashi who scored the lone goal for JP Voltes./PN ***************** [av_one_full first min_height=” vertical_alignment=” space=” custom_margin=” margin=’0px’ padding=’0px’ border=” border_color=” radius=’0px’ background_color=” src=” background_position=’top left’ background_repeat=’no-repeat’ animation=”][av_heading heading=’ Negrense Morallo lifts Loyola to retain spotless PH League slate’ tag=’h3′ style=’blockquote modern-quote’ size=” subheading_active=’subheading_below’ subheading_size=’15’ padding=’10’ color=” custom_font=”]By ADRIAN STEWART CO[/av_heading][av_textblock size=” font_color=” color=”]Sunday, May 28, 2017[/av_textblock][av_image src=’http://www.panaynews.net/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/sports-Loyola_Morallo.jpg’ attachment=’107269′ attachment_size=’full’ align=’center’ styling=” hover=” link=” target=” caption=” font_size=” appearance=” overlay_opacity=’0.4′ overlay_color=’#000000′ overlay_text_color=’#ffffff’ animation=’no-animation’][/av_image]last_img read more

Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler – Serap Ribuan Ilmu Jadi Kunci Kesuksesan Bapak Otomotif Asal Jerman…

first_imgSumber: mercedes-benz.com Dikenal sebagai seorang penemu dan pionir di bidang otomotif Jerman, Gottlieb Wilhelm Daimler lahir di Schorndorf pada 17 Maret 1834. Beberapa temuannya yang dikenang oleh dunia otomotif antara lain mesin pembakaran internal, mesin kendaraan berkecepatan tinggi berbahan bakar cair, serta pengembangan automobile. Pria yang akrab dipanggil Damiler ini diketahui kerap kali menghadiri Sekolah Latin dan kelas teknik menggabar pada hari Minggu.Baca Juga: Jamnalal Bajaj, Sang Pendiri Bajaj Yang Terlahir dari Keluarga MarjinalDi usianya yang menginjak 14 tahun, Daimler sempat magang di pabrik pembuat senjata di kampung halamannya. Empat tahun berselang, Ia berhasil menyelesaikan proyek pistol berlaras ganda pertamanya. Masih di tahun yang sama, yaitu 1852, Daimler memutuskan untuk meninggalkan dunia persenjataan dan membanting stir untuk mempelajari teknik mesin. Ia lalu mendaftarkan diri di School for Advanced Training in the Industrial Arts di Stuttgart, di bawah bimbingan Ferdinand von Steinbeis. Keseriusan Daimler ditunjukkan dengan rajinnya ia mengikuti asistensi, bahkan hingga mengambil kelas tambahan pada hari Minggu. Di usianya yang cukup belia, yaitu 22 tahun, Daimler ditunjuk sebagai mandor oleh Perusahaan Rollé und Schwilque dalam proyek perakitan lokomotif. Alih-alih melanjutkan masa magangnya, Daimler kembali melanjutkan kuliah, mengasah keterampilannya, dan mendapatkan pemahaman mendalam tentang lokomotif uap.Pada tahun 1861, Daimler mengundurkan diri dari Rollé und Schwilque, dan memilih untuk mengunjungi Paris, sebelum akhirnya melanjutkan perjalanan ke Inggris. Sesampainya di Tanah Britania, ia mulai bekerja di salah satu perusahaan teknik tinggi negara, membuat pengetahuannya di bidang peralatan mesin menjadi semakin luas. Dia menghabiskan waktu di Inggris sejak musim gugur 1861 hingga musim panas 1863.Pada akhir 1863, Daimler menjadi inspektur lokakarya di pabrik mesin Bruderhaus Reutlingen, sebuah institusi Kristen yang didirikan untuk menyediakan tempat tinggal dan mempekerjakan orang-orang yang kurang beruntung. Pada tanggal 9 November 1867 ia memutuskan untuk mempersunting Emma Kurtz dari Maulbronn. Dua tahun berselang, ia berhenti dari Bruderhaus Reutlingen dan kembali ditunjuk menjadi kepala mandor di Maschinenbau-Gesellschaft di Karlsruhe. Di tahun 1872, Daimler kembali menemukan batas ilmunya di Maschinenbau-Gesellschaft dan memutuskan untuk bergabung bersama Otto und Langen sebagai Technical Manager. Di sini, ia mulai terbiasa dengan prinsip four-strokes milik Otto. Namun perdebatan dengan pihak manajemen di pertengahan tahun 1882 memaksa Daimler untuk kembali merantau.vila di Taubenheimstraße milik Daimler. Sumber: mercedes-benz.comDi tahun yang sama, Daimler diketahui membeli sebuah vila di Taubenheimstraße, Cannstatt seharga 75.000 Goldmarks. Villa yang dilengkapi dengan taman besar ini berisikan rumah kaca yang disulapnya menjadi sebuah bengkel. Prinsip dasar yang diterapkan oleh Daimler adalah penggunaan bensin sebagai bahan bakar untuk semua jenis kendaraan, baik darat, laut, maupun udara. Namun, prinsip Daimler tersebut terbentur oleh teori four-strokes untuk mengoperasikan mesin kendaraan yang ia dapatkan dari Otto. Karena mekanisme pengapiannya yang rumit, maka hal tersebut tidak dapat diwujudkan.Daimler lalu memutar otak untuk dapat mewujudkan dua hal yang saling bertolak belakang tersebut. Setelah melakukan sejumlah eksperimen dengan intensif, Daimler mengajukan paten untuk mesin berpendingin tanpa tangki dengan sistem pengapian tabung yang tidak diatur. Paten dengan nomor DRP 28022 ini sangat inovatif, karena hampir tidak ditemukan perbedaan dengan prinsip four-strokes yang ditemukan oleh Otto. Lalu pada tahun 1890, Daimler berhasil mengembangkan mesin pembakaran internal.Baca Juga: William Boeing, Eks Pengusaha Kayu Yang Bawa Pengaruh Besar di Dunia AviasiDaimler-BenzSebelumnya, Daimler juga sukses melakukan beberapa penemuan, seperti motor pembakaran internal pertama bernama Reitwagen pada tahun 1885, dan menerapkan mesin di perahu pada tahun yang sama. Karir Daimler sempat goyah ketika ia tersandung masalah dengan Carl Benz. Nama Daimler mulai tenar karena ia berhasil mengembangkan kendaraan berbahan bakar cair pertama pada tahun 1885, beberapa bulan setelahnya, Carl Benz berhasil mengembangkan mobil dengan 2 cycle engine dengan desainnya sendiri.Uniknya, jauh sebelum perusahaan yang dipimpin oleh Daimler dan Benz memutuskan untuk bekerja sama, keduanya sama sekali belum pernah bertemu. Bahkan, dua orang penemu ini pernah bersitegang akibat Benz melanggar salah satu paten Daimler dan memaksanya untuk membayar royalti kepada Daimler. Momen pertemuan mereka hadir di pengadilan ketika tengah mengusut kasus pelanggaran paten yang dilakukan oleh Benz, namun Daimler memilih untuk tidak menghadiri acara tersebut.Gottlieb Daimler meninggal pada tanggal 6 Maret 1900, namun bukan berarti perjuangannya di dunia otomotif berhenti sampai situ saja. Diketahui, perusahaan Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft (DMG) dan Benz & Cie melakukan banyak kerja sama setelahnya, dan memutuskan untuk menandatangani kesepakatan kerja sama yang berisikan tentang penggabungan dua produsen mobil tertua di dunia pada 28 Juni 1926. Kesepakatan kerja sama tersebut melahirkan perusahaan baru yang bernama Daimler-Benz.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedJamnalal Bajaj, Sang Pendiri Bajaj Yang Terlahir dari Keluarga Marjinal05/09/2017In “Analisa Angkutan”Bajaj, Angkutan Beroda Tiga Yang Melegenda20/02/2017In “Analisa Angkutan”Boeing 747 Qantas Terbang dengan Lima Mesin dan Tetap Stabil, Ini Rahasianya!19/08/2020In “Featured”last_img read more

Tyler: “Over the years we have seen a lot of growth in the entrepreneurial sector of the small business sector. That’s been a really robust area of our economy, and people who are jumping into small business utilizing a lot of the resources that are available here in the state to get these businesses going.” Economic diversification describes an economy that has a number of different revenue streams and provides the state with the ability for sustainable growth because there is not a reliance on one particular type of revenue.center_img Ethan Tyler the Development Manager for the Alaska Division of Economic Development….
