Hidup dalam paradoks

Materi kuliah FISIKA INDUSTRI, dengan fokus membangkitkan daya saing bangsa:

  1. kita KAYA tapi MISKIN [kekayaan SDA melimpah, tapi miskin penghasilan]
  2. kita BESAR tapi KERDIL[amat besar wilayah & penduduknya, tapi kerdil dalam produktivitas  dan daya saingnya]
  3. kita MERDEKA tapi TERJAJAH [merdeka secara politik, namun terjajah secara ekonomi]
  4. kita KUAT tapi LEMAH [kuat dalam tindak anarkisme, namun lemah dalam menghadapi  tantangan globalisasi]
  5. kita INDAH tapi JELEK [indah dalam potensi dan prospeknya, namun jelek & korup dalam pengelolaannya]

Indeks bias emas (Au)

Gold is a chemical element with the symbol Au and an atomic number of 79. It has a low refractive index in the visible region but high absorption (k) especially in the near-infrared region. Because of its high-reflectivity in the near-infrared it is used for the protective coatings on many artificial satellites, in protective faceplates in thermal protection suits and astronauts’ helmets, and also for electronic warfare. Gold is a dense, soft, and shiny metal and the most malleable and ductile of pure metals. A gram of gold can be stretched out into a square meter of area, beating it so that it is thin enough to become translucent. Light that passes through the translucent gold will appear greenish-blue because gold reflects yellow (570-580 nanometers), orange (585?620 nanometers), and red light (630?740 nanometers). You can see the rapid change in refractive index and absorption in the graphs below. Because of its resistance to oxidation gold can be used as an optical standard or reference material in a series of spectroscopic measurements. For a typical sample of Au the refractive index and extinction coefficient at 632.8 nm are 0.181 and 3.068.

Measurements, Errors, and Uncertainty

Most experiments require scientists to make measurements.  Measurements are rarely exactly the same. Measurements are always somewhat different from the “true value.” These deviations from the true value are called errors. All measurements, however careful and scientific, are subject to some uncertainties. Error analysis is the study and evaluation of these uncertainties, its two main functions being to allow the scientist to estimate how large his uncertainties are, and to help him to reduce them when necessary. The analysis of uncertainties, or “errors,” is a vital part of any scientific experiment, and error analysis is therefore an important part of any college course in experimental science. It can also be one of the most interesting parts of the course. The challenges of estimating uncertainties and of reducing them to a level that allows a proper conclusion to be drawn can turn a dull and routine set of measurements into a truly interesting exercise.

CV writing tips and templates

Curriculum vitae is very important for seeking job, scholarship, new position, etc. So, keep your curriculum vitae simple. Your curriculum vitae must be concise. Your curriculum vitae must be easy to read. Your curriculum vitae must sell you. And your curriculum vitae must be tailored to what the reader is looking for. These CV and letter principles apply to all career moves. Having a good CV is essential for full-time jobs, part-time, internal, external, promotions, new jobs, career changes, internships and work experience placements - wherever an employer or decision-maker is short-listing or interviewing or selecting applicants. Short-listed and successful candidates are invariably the people who provide employers with the best CVs and best covering letters. A CV does not have to be a text document. It can be a video. If a picture tells a thousand words, imagine what moving pictures can convey about you. The technology exists now for anyone to create a video CV, and to upload it onto a website - including this one. These notes are therefore not restricted to text-based CVs. The principles are good for your video CV too. Text or Video - the same principles apply. How you perform at the interview or group selection is of course crucial, but only the people with the best CVs and letters get to that stage.

How do you answer ‘Describe yourself’ in an interview?

Describing Yourself in an Interview

This answer should always be related to the job. Remember, although the employer is asking personal questions, they are still all related to “what can you bring to the company?” So, I usually give adjectives like reliable, loyal, etc., but make sure you back these with supporting examples. The most important thing is to make sure you boil it all down to presenting the answer in a way that it matches the things the employer is looking for.

Interview do’s and dont’s

  • Dress for success: No matter what the job entails, treat each interview as a possibility for promotion. Dress in business-type attire. Don’t over-do your make-up or hairstyle. Simple and direct sells more than sloppy or careless.
  • Body Language speaks volumes: Stand up when the interviewer comes into the room. Shake hands and smile. Sit erect in your chair, head high, chin up during the interview and don’t fidget. Develop a commanding presence, one that lasts after you leave the room. Be confident and pleasant. Don’t tap your foot or your fingers, drum the desk or show any sort of nervous behavior.
  • Avoid overused words: Like, and, an this, all are words that are overused on a daily basis. Steer clear of saying “umm” and “you know.”
  • Practice in front of a full length mirror. Watch your posture, your facial expression. Where are your hands? How are your feet placed? Are your shoes tied? You would be surprised at the number of people who walk into an interview room with shoelaces untied.
  • You don’t want to be rigid, you want your movements to be fluid and unforced. But that does take practice.
  • Listen to the interviewer. Don’t rush your answers. Keep eye contact, and don’t interrupt the interviewer, Don’t take too long to answer. Give thought behind your statements. Don’t blurt things out because you might be nervous.

7 kebiasaan orang-orang yang inovatif

Have you ever looked at super creative or innovative people, and felt they are special beings blessed with gifts? Have you felt that you are not as fortunate? I used to feel this way. I have since learned that creativity is more about psychology than intellect, and there are no secrets to being creative. Actually, there is no such thing as “being more creative”, you are already a creative being. I’m sure we can all relate to moments when we felt stuck trying to tap into our own creativity. Did you know that this block is merely your mind at work? Your mind is creating all sorts of assumptions, self-imposed constraints and self-limiting inhibitions. I have found that we can remove these assumptions just by being in the moment; start doing, and stop thinking.
