Man jailed for striking RI maid


SINGAPORE: A supervisor was jailed for two repeatedly striking his Indonesian maid on the head and back with a television remote control, news reports said on Thursday.

Muhamad shafiq woon Abdullah admitted in a Singapore court he physically abused the woman on several occasions between June and October 2002. The straits times said.

The magistrate’s court heard that Shafiq, 31, began striking Winarti, 22, about month after she started working for him.

He hit her on the head with the TV set’s remote control because he was un happy with her work. On one occasion, he punched her on the back after accusing her of daydreaming.

S.S. Dhillon, Shafiq’s lawyer, said his client lost his “better sense” when he saw his daughter’s face covered as she lay in bed.

He said his client thought the maid had put the child in danger. DPA

Original Soundtrack of Brownies

Bisa Saja was chosen as the first single of the album and the theme song of Brownies because the lyrics reflect the story in the movie. Budjana of GIGI demonstrates his skill in playing an accoustic guitar in Cinta Terakhir. Three other brand new songs, Dilema, Jangan Bilang Pacarku, and Semua Orang Berhak Mendapat Rasa Bahagia, give supporting nuances to the flow of the movie. GIGI composed them by imagining how the scenes would look like based on the screenplay.

When Hanung Bramantyo (the director) and Dewa Budjana of GIGI chatted, Budjana expressed his interest in making a soundtrack album. Then, he recommended a few GIGI songs, which the producer accepted because of the chemistry they created with the movie.

Since GIGI could provide a variety of colors to add all kinds of musical nuances to enrich the movie, the producers deemed it unnecessary to find other musicians to complete the original soundtrack of Brownies.

Armand Maulana (vocalist), I Gede Dewa Budjana (guitarist), Thomas Ramadhan (bass player), and Gusti Erhandy (drums-stand-in player for Budhi Haryono) put a lot of effort into this album. As a result, they’e created a perfect blend of movie and songs that makes Brownies tastier.

It’s always fun to have a piece of brownies in your mouth but having it on your stereo is more entertaining. No movie is perfect without a musical score and Ost. of  Brownies has proved it excellently.

The Advantages and the Disadvantages of Nuclear Energy


 Nuclear energy is commonly offered as an alternative to overcome the crisis of energy. The debate of whether the use of nuclear energy is an appropriate choice has not come to an end. Some people agree with the utilization of it because of its benefits. Some others, however, disagree because of its risks to the environment.

Those who agree with the operation of nuclear reactors usually argue that nuclear energy is the only feasible choice to answer the ever – increasing energy needs. In their opinion, the other sources of energy: oil, coal, and liquid natural gas are not renewable and safe, while nuclear energy can be sustainable when produced in a safe way.

However, people who disagree with the use of nuclear energy point out that the waste of nuclear products can completely destroy the environment and human lives. A meltdown in reactor, for example, usually results in the contamination of the surroundings soil and water. Take for example, the blow up of the nuclear reactor at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station in Russia twenty years ago. The serious contamination imperiled people and the environment severely.

It is obvious that nuclear energy should be avoided because it really endanger the environment but what about a less polluted energy instead of nuclear energy? Is there any alternative energy to overcome the crisis of energy?
