WordPress

Sejarah WordPress dimulai saat Matt Mullenweg yang merupakan pengguna aktif dari b2 mengetahui bahwa proses pengembangan b2 dihentikan oleh pemrogramnya (programmer) yang bernama Michel Valdrighi, Matt Mullenweg merasa sayang dan mulai melanjutkan pengembangan b2

Dengan mendaftar pada situs WordPress.com, pengguna tidak perlu melakukan instalasi atau konfigurasi yang cukup sulit.Sayangnya, pengguna WordPress.com tidak dapat mengubah template standar yang sudah disediakan.Artinya, pengguna tidak dapat menambahkan asesori apa pun selain yang sudah disediakan.Meski demikian, fitur yang disediakan oleh WordPress.com sudah cukup bagus.

WordPress.org merupakan wilayah pengembang (developer). Di alamat ini, seseorang dapat mengunduh (download) aplikasi beserta seluruh berkas CMS WordPress. Selanjutnya, CMS ini dapat diubah ulang selama seseorang menguasai PHP, CSS dan skrip lain yang menyertainya.WordPress dengan Bahasa Indonesia ada berkat kerja para kontributor di Indonesia yang dipimpin oleh Huda Toriq, seorang Mahasiswa Kedokteran dari Universitas Diponegoro (UNDIP) Semarang

Lost and Found

Fly Softly My Love

The other day before we started playing hide and seek, Welly looked at me with his soul eyes and said, “Mama if I get lost, will you always always find me?”

“Yes Baby. Always.”

And while he ran off to find his perfectly obvious hiding spot in a cardboard box, my heart felt the weight of that question.

Yes! That is it, isn’t it? That is all we have to do. Perhaps the big work of our lifetime is to keep finding each other, over and over when we got lost and disconnected.

I remember what my parents would tell me at Disneyland or the shopping mall or the woods: If you get lost, stay right where you are. Don’t fight it. Don’t scramble around. We’ll come to you and it’s so much harder to find a moving target.

I used to think my job was to not get lost…

“TWINS : How Does Twins Connect To Each Other”

Hearing the word twins, have certainly reflected in our minds about the similar faces, dressed the same way, same hair color, even the same voice. Seeing twins like seeing a copy of that human. Twins are a lot more common in today’s society than they were 50 years ago. Many people wonder if they would even like to have a twin. Most twins find they love it and it is helpful in many different aspects of life. Therefore it is better to have a twin.

Twins are fascinating people. Often incredibly close, sometimes not at all, there is an undeniable connection between them. This is obvious to their friends, family and spouses. This is “twin connection”.

There are two types of twin pregnancies, the first is a twin pregnancies derived from one egg or called monozygotic (identical twins). The second is a twin pregnancies derived from a fertilized egg 2 or more are called dizygotic. In pregnancy the identical gender, blood type, face, hands and feet stamp the same, whereas in dizygotic pregnancy gender, blood type, face and hand stamp can vary

Many people says that twins can connect one to another. That support it is because they are in one uterus for over 9 months and have their development together until their birth. The connection between twins can be varied in nature. It could be as simple as one twin thinking of the other and the phone rings, their twin being on the other line. They could also do the same thing as the other twin, even though they’re in a different city

Some says that twins can feel what it twins feels. Nether physically nor mentally, for example physically if one of them get hurt the other one can feel the same pain. Mentally if one of them was sad or heart braked, the other one can feel the same. Other times, twins will feel each other’s pain as it is happened. There have an example in which one twin was in hard worker and her sister felt her twin’s contractions.

There are many stories of twins being psychically connected. Perhaps sensing the other twin’s wish to communicate or even a trauma involving their twin. It has been reported more than a few times that a twin has felt the other’s sorrow/sadness, even actual physical pain simultaneously.

Competition between twins is often feared, although most twins would say they find it very beneficial. For example, competition is helpful in ones academics. Having the other twin come home with a better grade on a test encourages the other in a challenging way to do just as well, if not better. Twins a lot of times tease each other on who gets the better grade creating a healthy competition that motivates one another.

But experience shows that identical twins are rarely completely the same. Until recently, any differences between twins had largely been attributed to environmental influences, but a recent study contradicts that belief.

Identical twins may have the exact same genes, but their personalities are often startlingly different even when they were brought up in the same way. There is some factors that can make the identical twins become a different person in another word the twins not always same with their twins.

  1. 1.      Surroundings factor

            Even identical twins who grew up in the same neighborhood may live a different life events, have a different diet, or suffer from different illnesses.

  1. 2.      Social

            The people who near with them like friends can make the twins can’t connect each other. It’s because each of them have their own friends or near friends (best friend) who different with their twins, and the character of their friends can influence the twins character.

  1. 3.      Emotional

            Not always the identical twins have same character. There is some prove who consider that they are different. One of them is their parents teaching. Not always because they are live in same roof they parents have to teach same thing that can make they are same in emotional position.

Some unique facts about TWINS

  1. 1.      Evil vs Angel

Twins is always describing by evil and angel, the leader (the older) and the follower. Sister/brother often being bad character and it’s identical with the twins who born first. It means sister/brother have power to their little sister/brother although they are just have little bit time difference.

  1. 2.      Who is sister and little sister?

The twins who born first is little sister not sister. The reason is the sister help her little sister to show up. Although, medicine world agreed that consider the baby who born first (according to the date and time) is sister and the next is little sister.

  1. 3.      If one of them sick, another twin must be sick too.

The essence of this myth is the twins have telepathic abilities. Another example is if one could not finish his words, the other twin will be able to read minds and finish his words. This occurs because the twins have “code language” outsiders who do not understand other than their own. This ability arises because the emotional closeness they’ve started since nine months in the same womb, so born and grew ever they were always together.

  1. 4.      Only twins can make twins generation

The twins pregnant was possibility happened to the couple who have a twins generation, but at the medicine era who have been grow and forward, there is available drugs who can trigger the ovum who can produce the twins baby.

  1. 5.      Twins have their own language

There is some opinion consider that twins created their own language such as visual and nonvisual language who just understand by the twins itself. Twin really do create their own languages, which are can’t understand by others.

In fact, a study published suggests that autonomous languages exist in as many as 40 percent of twins, though they often do not last long. The language typically consists of some invented words, a few sound-based expressions and a variation of the language being modeled by adults. This phenomenon isn’t limited to twins, but can take place with close siblings of any stripe.

In the end, the differences between identical twins increase as they age, because environmentally triggered changes accumulate. But twins can also begin their lives with differences.
