#Quotes

He's not perfect. You aren't either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold on to him and gave him the most you can. He isn't going to quote poetry, he's not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don't hurt him, don't change him, and don't expect more than he can give. Don't analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he's not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don't exist, but there's always one guy that is perfect for you.

Tantangan Jean Chretien


Pada 15 Januari 2003, Jean Chretien, Perdana Menteri Kanada menantang penduduk negara maju. Bentuk tantangannya yaitu: mampukah penduduk negara maju mengurangi satu ton lebih emisi CO2?

Apa mungkin? Selintas sih, memang sulit. Tetapi, hal tersebut bisa saja dilakukan jika memang ada kemauan. Anda pasti terkejut, ternyata sangat mudah mengurangi emisi CO2. Hal-hal inilah yang harus dilakukan oleh penduduk negara maju agar emisinya berkurang.

Untuk para mahasiswa Toronto yang hidup mandiri, para seniman London, para pensiunan di San Diego yang ingin merubah rutinitasnya, aktivis lingkungan perkotaan Jepang, atau bahkan para ibu muda di Hamburg.

·         Mengurangi konsumsi daging dengan cara selang-seling. Makanan vegetarian membutuhkan lebih sedikit energi dalam proses produksinya. Dalam mengkonsumsi daging, ingat bahwa peternakan menyumbang emisi GRK dari kotoran dan fermentasi pencernaan hewan.
Penghematan CO2 = 487 pounds
·         Tidak menggunakan kendaraannya selama 60 hari dalam 1 tahun. Berjalan kaki, bersepeda atau menggunakan kendaraan umum.
Penghematan CO2 = 917 pounds
·         Mengganti penggunaan air panas menjadi air hangat, atau gunakan air dingin tiap mencuci pakaian.
Penghematan
CO2 = 600 pounds
·         Total = 2004 pounds (satu ton)

Untuk keluarga besar di Seoul, pasangan pengantin baru di Chicago, supir truk antar negara bagian, dokter pada kota kecil di Finlandia, dan semua orang di Hollywood.

·         Mengganti dua buah bohlam dengan lampu hemat energi.
Penghematan
CO2 = 1000 pounds
·         Mengganti shower head dengan model yang beraliran rendah.
Penghematan
CO2 = 300 pounds
·         Menurunkan thermostat sebanyak 2 derajat selama satu tahun.
Penghematan CO2 = 500 pounds
·         Mengurangi penggunaan bahan bakar sebanyak 10 gallon di tahun 2003.
Penghematan
CO2 = 200 pounds
·         Total = 2000 pounds (satu ton)

Untuk yang baru menjadi kakek di Dublin, pecinta burung di Bern, pelajar sekolah menengah, eksekutif perusahaan minyak di Houston, dan bagi siapa pun di seluruh dunia.

·         Mengganti kulkas yang sudah berusia 20 tahun dengan kulkas hemat energi. Penghematan CO2 = 3000 pounds
·         Mengurangi sampah, 30 gallon setiap minggu.
Penghematan CO2 = 300 pounds
·         Tidak menggunakan kendaraan pribadi, 2 hari dalam 1 minggu selama 1 tahun.
Penghematan
CO2 = 1590 pounds
·         Mendaur ulang kaleng aluminium, botol kaca, plastik, kardus dan koran.
Penghematan
CO2 = 850 pounds
·         Total = 5,740 pounds (Hampir 3 ton!)

Lalu cara mana yang Anda pilih?

romaji

Ousama no koe ni sakaratte
Barechatta yoru kimi wa waratte ita

Oorora ni sawareru hoka no ue
Ryoute wo nobashite boku wo sasotte ita

Hodokete barabara ni natta biizu
Kirei da ne tte yozora ni purezento

Doukashi wa sugao wo misenaide
Joudan mitai ni aru hi inaku natta

Sekai wa kyou mo kan tansou ni mawaru
Sono supiido de namida mo kawaku kedo

Kimi no yume ga kanau no wa
Dareka no okage ja nai ze
Kaze no tsuyoi hi wo erande hashitte kita

Imagoro doko de doushite iru no ka na
Me ni ukabu tereta ushiro sugata ni
Aitai na

Kimi no yume ga kanau no wa
Dareka no okage ja nai ze
Kaze no tsuyoi hi wo erande hashitte kita

Tobenakute mo fuan ja nai
Jimen wa tsuzuite iru n da
Sukina basho e yukou
Kimi nara sore ga dekiru
english translation

Defying the voice of the king,
You slipped out in the night laughing

Sitting on the aurora above,
You invited me with open arms

Unraveling into scattered beads,
A beautiful present from the sleeping night sky

Clowns, don’t show your true faces!
Like a joke, they disappeared one day

Even today the world spins so easily
But with that speed my tears are also dried

Your dream isn’t fulfilled by anyone
It just comes on a strong wind one day


Right about now, I wonder where you are and why
I want to meet the form behind the shine floating in those eyes

Your dream isn’t fulfilled by anyone
It just comes on a strong wind one day


Even without flying, I’m not insecure
The ground is following
Let’s go to that place we love
If you’re here, I can do that

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines upon your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I can laugh honestly
Start running now!

My fingertips, dyed in a slightly mature color
Embarrassed, I secretly hid them
Resting your chin on your hands, at the edge of your glance,
a small bud was swaying

Hey
I’ve been always hesitating
Only now do I remember those words I said

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines upon your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I can laugh honestly
Start running now!

I don’t want to say things like “The old days were good”,
but there are memories I want to get back too
My eyes fill with the me who pushes me from behind,
a vision piled on top of sprouting buds.

I’ll overcome time, so that someday
I can be proud of that day again
I’ll carry an anticlockwise clock too
Cut through it with your hands
Are you laughing? That’s just like you
to hold onto the feelings I can’t let go of
Start running now!

Hey
Even now I’m always hesitating
Only now do I remember those words I said

Dye the future in your color

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines upon your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I can laugh honestly
Start running now!

I’ll overcome time, so that someday
I can be proud of that day again
I’ll carry an anticlockwise clock too
Cut through it with your hands
Are you laughing? That’s just like you
to hold onto the feelings I can’t let go of
Start running now!
