Bali has been the favorite destination for locals and international tourists for ages. Bali has been the favorite destination for locals and international tourists for ages. Full of magnificent beaches, breathtaking sceneries, marvellous trinkets and interesting culture, Bali is ideal for people wanting to escape from daily activities, enjoy a honeymoon, or even, have a great time with family and friends. Bali is an Indonesian island located at 8°25’23?S 115°14’55?E, the westernmost of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. It is one of the country’s 33 provinces with the provincial capital at Denpasar towards the south of the island. With a population recorded as 3,151,000 in 2005, the island is home to the vast majority of Indonesia’s small Hindu minority. 93.18% of Bali’s population adheres to Balinese Hinduism, while most of the remainder follow Islam. It is also the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking and music.

History

Though no artifacts or records exist that would date Bali as far back as the Stone Age, it is thought that the very first settlers to Bali emigrated from China in 2500 BC, having created quite the evolved culture by the Bronze era, in around 300BC.  This culture included a complex, effective irrigation system, as well as agriculture of rice, which is still used to this day.

Bali’s history remained vague for the first few centuries, though many Hindu artifacts have been found, which lead back to the first century, indicating a tie with that religion.  Though it is strongly held that the first primary religion of Bali, discovered as far back as 500 AD, was Buddhism.  Additionally, Yi-Tsing, a Chinese scholar who visited Bali in the year 670 AD stated that he had visited this place and seen Buddhism there.

By the 11th century, Hindu and Javanese influences became very important to Bali.  In fact, when the Balinese Prince Airlanggha’s father died in about 1011 AD, he moved to East Java, uniting it under one principality and appointing his brother, Anak Wungsu, the ruler of all of Bali.  Following this time, there were many reciprocal political and artistic ideas that formed.  Javanese language, called Kawi, became the aristocracy’s preference, among other Javanese traits and customs that were worked into Bali life.

When Airlanggha died in the mid-11th century, Bali remained quite autonomous until 1284, when East Javanese king Kertanegara conquered Bali and ruled over it from his home in Java.  Kertanegara was assassinated in 1292, and Bali was once again liberated, until 1343 when it was brought back into Javanese control by Hindu-Javanese general Gajah Mada, of the Majapahit empire.

At this time, the 16th century, Islam was spreading throughout Sumatra and Java, and the Majapahit Empire started to fall, creating a large exodus of aristocracy, priests, artists and artisans to Bali.  This brought Bali great prosperity, becoming Bali’s golden age of cultural history for the following centuries.  Bali soon became the major power of the region, taking control of its neighboring country, Lombok, as well as pieces of East Java.

In 1597, Dutch seamen were the first Europeans to land in Bali, though they had no true interest in Bali until the 1800’s.  In 1846 the Dutch returned with colonization on their minds, having already had vast expanses of Indonesia under their control since the 1700’s.  The Dutch sent troops into northern Bali, and by 1894, they had sided with the Sasak people of Lombok to defeat the Balinese.  By 1911, all Balinese principalities were under Dutch control.

After World War I, a sense of Indonesian Nationalism began to grow, leading to the declaration of the national language in 1928, as Bahasa Indonesia.  World War II brought the Japanese, who expelled the Dutch and occupied Indonesia from 1942 until 1945.

The Japanese were later defeated, and the Dutch returned to attempt to regain control of Bali and Indonesia.  However, in 1945, Indonesia was declared independent by its very first president, Sukarno.  The Dutch government ceded, and Indonesia was officially recognized as an independent country in 1949.

Overland

People & Culture

Bali’s reputation as a tourist destination is already established in the minds of so many people around the world. It is known as a beautiful island with mountains, temples, palaces and visits of terraced rice fields.

It is known as a place where traditions of art and culture predominate, where the village way of life based on their strong religious beliefs is still in place.

But, it is also a place where modern sports such as diving, sailing, rafting and above all surfing have taken hold and are enjoyed by thousands of visitors every year. It is a place where the ultimate luxuries of life: fine dining, spas and massage have reached the peak of perfection.

Behind all of this is a single unseen premise; none of these practices, pursuits and pleasures are created as tourist industries in Bali, but are based on the talents, dedication and skills of the Balinese people in their normal course of life.

Cuisine

Like the food of other regions in Indonesia, Balinese food is rice as the central dish served with small portions of spicy, pungent vegetables, fish or meat and served almost always with sambal or chili paste. Bali is a few of the regions in Indonesia whose majority of its people are non Muslims, thus babi guling or roasted suckling pig is a specialty, as is bebek betutu, smoked stuffed duck wrapped in bamboo leaves.

In Jimbaran area, for instance, you can sample seafood dishes while sitting on the beach. Visit this place in the evening, the cool atmosphere and caressing breeze will make your dining experience remarkable.

Pengertian Traceroute

Traceroute (Tracert) adalah perintah untuk menunjukkan rute yang dilewati paket untuk mencapai tujuan. Ini dilakukan dengan mengirim pesan Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Echo Request Ke tujuan dengan nilai Time to Live yang semakin meningkat. Rute yang ditampilkan adalah daftar interface router (yang paling dekat dengan host) yang terdapat pada jalur antara host dan tujuan.

Cara melakukan Traceroute pada Windows

  1. Klik Start –> Run
  2. Setelah muncul pop up lalu anda tinggal ketikkan –> CMD
  3. Lalu munculah gambar seperti di bawah ini , kemudian anda  tinggal ketikkan –> tracert (spasi) namadomainanda

Dengan traceroute, kita dapat menganalisis informasi mengenai lokasi router, tipe dan kapasitas interface, tipe dan fungsi router, serta batas-batas network yang dilalui, berdasarkan DNS interface yang dilalui. Untuk lebih memperjelas, berikut ini adalah contoh hasil traceroute ke rumahweb.com

Hasil tracert diatas menunjukkan bahwa koneksi yang digunakan cukup stabil, terlihat 12 Hops (loncatan). Waktu dalam satuan ms (millisecond) sama seperti halnya Hops, semakin kecil waktu perpindahan data, maka akan semakin baik /cepat  anda mengakses situs yang anda traceroute  tadi.

Tetapi jika anda melihat pada hasil tracert ada tanda  *  atau pesan “request timed out” pada hasil tracert anda, maka disitulah masalah yang ada pada koneksi internet anda.

Secara practical, traceroute digunakan sebagai bahan untuk menganalisa kemungkinan-kemungkinan penyebab Anda tidak bisa mengakses suatu website.

Jika Anda tidak bisa mengakses website Anda dan hasil tracert tidak complete, silahkan menghubungi support dari provider hosting dan informasikan hasil tracert tersebut untuk digunakan sebagai bahan analisa penyebab kemungkinan website Anda tidak bisa diakses, selain itu informasikan juga IP Publik koneksi Anda saat ini (Bisa diperiksa menggunakan layanan seperti http://whatismyip.com) untuk mencegah kemungkinan IP Publik Anda terblok di sisi server.

jika tidak bisa mengakses web kami silahkan di coba langkah diatas tracert (spasi) mandiratravel.com

saat kelahiran anak pertama perasaan kita super excited, jika bayi tidak kekurangan bilirubin makan bisa rawat di kamar karena akan di berikan asi eksklusive

hal pertama yang kita pelajari adalah cara bedong bayi

  1. Make sure to have a large (at least 44 X 44 inch) square blanket.
  2. Place the blanket diagonally with the top corner folded down towards you.
  3. Place the baby on their back slightly off-centered to your left.
  4. Take the bottom corner and go across the chest, tucking the corner around the waist toward the back.
  5. Pull the blanket snug.

  6. Go 4 inches from the baby’s left shoulder and fold over onto the chest making a “V”.
  7. Place your palm on the “V” and grab the corner that is to your right, pull up and over your wrist that is on the “V”
  8. This becomes your “belt”, wrap around the baby at the elbow level and make sure it is snug.
  9. Tuck that corner into the pocket that lays on the baby’s chest.
  10. Finished.

EditTips

  • Remember that if your newborn is not swaddled correctly, he or she will be fussy (and not sleep!). The swaddle has to be snug so that your baby does not try to get out. On the other hand, you don’t want to go too tight! It is very important to swaddle these little ones in a way that allows movement of the hip joints to avoid hip problems

Nasi jenggo
Dari Wikipedia bahasa Indonesia, ensiklopedia bebas
Belum Diperiksa

Nasi jenggo.
Nasi jenggo (atau nasi jinggo) adalah makanan khas Bali yang serupa dengan nasi kucing, namun lauk disediakan sangat berbeda, umumnya adalah mie goreng, sambal, serundeng, dan ayam yang disuwir-suwir pedas. Namun nasi jenggo dapat ditambahkan dengan telur, tempe, dan tahu. Nasi jenggo umumnya dibungkus dengan daun pisang.
Sama seperti nasi kucing, porsi nasi jenggo sangat sedikit dan harganya murah (umumnya Rp. 1000,- sampai Rp. 5000,-), sehingga nasi jenggo kurang mengenyangkan dan biasanya dibeli beberapa bungkus.
