Separate Sports an Politics, It’s Already Been

There are many of sports enthusiasts think that sports should be separated with politics in all level. It sounds great to keep the spirit of sport free from all political reason and live sports as it be.

Sports, any kind of it from European football to American football from tennis to badminton have gain enormous attention from people around the world. Millions if not billions of sports fans watch a Superbowl, Summer Olympic, or FIFA World Cup.

With its popularity it is really tempting to use sports both teams of events to make it as political tools. Many of people will think that it is inappropriate.  Well, maybe they are right but the term ‘politic’ in this context is wider than just a local politic within a country.

in International Politics or some people also called it as International Relations sports is one of powerful tools for state to get attentions from the public of international. It even easier to spread their influence with their sport’s achievement, their sports league, or even hosting an international sport event.

In wider scope of international politic, it is clear that sports has already been a political tools of a country to spread their interest to another countries and mostly international public. it also a reason for a country would like to spend billions of dollar to make an international sport event they hold looks spectacular or why a country like UK massively promote their English Premier League to attract global community.

The purpose is they want to recognize or even admired by global community with their best image. International interactions now has changed rapidly from the Era of Cold War. The use of high politics things like economic sanctions, threaten another country, or the use of military force is no longer suitable with international environment. Countries then need a new media to spread their influences to the world, one of them is to use sports.

The use of low politics things like sports in interstate interaction actually is not a fresh thing. Even in Cold War Uni Soviet and United States were competing each other try to pursue international public with their cultures, popular culture and high culture to show that they are more fun and more civilized. They also competed in many olympics to show which one is the best in sports

When the era of Cold War ended, than begin a new era of international relations that accommodate more non-state actors including an individual to take part in international interactions. This era open new opportunity for a country to spread their interest, to gain more power and to fulfill their interest with the use of low politics things.

Sports nowadays then is not just a match or a championship that full of sportsmanship spirit. More than that, it is a way of a nation-state to gain more popularity in the world so they power will also increase

Back on Blogging

After a full week busy with checking and scoring assignment of my tutored students’ final exam, finally I have time to write an article for my blog again.

This semester is my first time I am helping my professor lecturing the student, so I guess that my position is more to a tutor than a lecture assistant. No matter what my position is I have to take it seriously since it is very important for the students to get balance score with their efforts of the semester.

Now, all those process is nearing an end so I have time to write again on my blog. Checking the students’ final exam and assignments does not mean that I fully separate myself from freelance activities. I visited and read a couple of articles about SEO, freelance job, affiliate marketing, how to make money online and so on. So I think that I am still updated for all these kind of information.

I only have several ideas for articles in my mind. The problem is I didn’t have enough time this week to convert in to real articles. And this is my first article after vacuüm a week from blogging activities.

Hopefully that my coming articles will be posted in near future since I want to update my blog more often.

See you in my coming articles..

Review on Gobann.com: Indonesian Micro Job Website for Indonesian Freelancers

This article is a review on gobann.com, an Indonesian micro job website. one of the biggest Indonesian freelancers market place

Micro job website is a popular phenomenon on internet nowadays. You can easily find this kind of website on Google. Gobann.com is one of micro job websites among many similar sites. Its uniqueness is its Indonesian based website

As I mentioned earlier, gobann.com is an Indonesian based micro job websites we on internet. Since their basic language and market target is Indonesian so everything in this site are very Indonesian. It use Indonesian language, accommodate Indonesian bank and so on.

 gobann front page

Gobann.com’s hompage

The idea is to make a micro job website like fiverr.com but specific for Indonesian region. There are a lot of Indonesian freelancers who willing to get micro jobs for some money and there are also a lot of demand for it. Gobann.com then wish to become a market place where Indonesian seller and buyer of micro services met.

Like any other micro job website, gobann.com also offers various easy jobs for Indonesian freelancer, all for fifty thousand rupiahs (around five dollars). Because of all jobs are valued fifty thousand rupiahs, so the website named gobann which mean fifty thousand in Indonesian slang language Chinese based.

Seller’s service offer in micro job website or also widely known as gig is called ‘kangtao’ in gobann.com. Reason behind the name is the same with the term of gobann itself. You can make kangtao as many as you want in various topics to attract many buyers to offer.

Gobann.com interface is simple if compared to most popular micro job website fiverr.com. While fiverr.com use interactive flash based interface, gobann.com use simple interface just like gigbucks.com or tenbux.com. Despite its simplicity, gobann.com yet still have elegance interface and very easy to operate boot for seller and buyer.

Gobann.com’s interface

Gobann.com announced their self as the biggest Indonesian micro job website. This announcement may be true since I cannot find any similar Indonesian website like gobann.com.

The problem of gobann.com is its popularity is not as big as another micro job website even for Indonesia seller and buyer. There are many sellers but there are not enough buyers to accommodate all kangtaos from the seller. There even harder to find top rated buyer and seller in this site

My Personal experience is main support to the argument above.  I just have one client and it’s very hard to find another. Gobann.com’s demand list page is also very quite even when you search an entire week.

Another problem for me is about the payment method. Many of micro job website accepts PayPal to send the money from them into your own account. Different thing happen in gobann.com which require the seller to have specific Indonesian local bank account to transfer your payment. It’s quite frustrating for sellers who don’t have the accepted bank account and it happen to me.

Well, regardless of gobann.com weakness it is still a good Indonesian micro jobs website. A place for people especially Indonesian to start their freelancer career likes me. It’s a good website to increase your experience but don’t hope too much from this, at least for now.

Hopefully gobann.com will grow bigger and able to accommodate Indonesian needs for a micro job website.

How to Stay Strong in First Day of Ramadan

First day of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan used to feel very hard. It is normal since our body try to get used to with that condition, no food and water supply for over twelve hours a day. Many Muslims will be feeling dizzy, fatigue, and weak in the first day of Ramadan, so many of us will decide to stay at home and get lazy.

If we just get lazy in our first day of fasting it will be fine, but what if we get used to stay lazy a month full? The problem just comes then. Holy month of Ramadan is not time to get lazy for all Muslims. The essential thing about Ramadan is every Muslim is battling with their lust including our lust to get lazy. One of our first challenges in Ramadan then is to defeat our dizziness, our fatigue, and our feeling of weak. If we do so, we can beat our laziness and stay productive.

Stay productive in first day of Ramadan is a difficult thing to do, but we have to do it anyway. Personally, I have couples tricks to beat my laziness in first day of Ramadan. I hope these tricks will help you to stay strong and productive during first day of Ramadan.

1. Have a Good Sahur

Sahur or early breakfast before fasting is an important thing to stay fit and strong during fasting. Eat foods contain fiber, proteins, and complex carbohydrate will help you to stay fit during fasting. You also can consume supplements if necessary. The last thing you don’t forget is drink enough amount of water to keep you hydrated.

2. Get Busy

Yes, get busy, not get lazy. You can do a lot of things in the first day of fasting in Ramadan like reading books, do your works, or just take a walk. Even though it will be feeling so hard because it will help you get used to Ramadan routines faster. It will feel hard just in first day, but will be easier in the next days.

 3. Reinforced Intention of Fasting

Everything we do will be started with an intention and so is fasting. When you reinforced your intention of fasting, you will feel strong because you do fasting for Allah SWT and believe that He will give power to overcome difficulties in fasting such as laziness.

 I always do those tricks in my first day of fasting in Ramadan and it is works. I hope that it will be works for you as well.  So Muslims can improve our fasting quality. May He accept our fasting and forgive every sins we have done.
