Bagi Anda yang suka membaca atau perlu mengerjakan beberapa tugas membaca di tempat tidur, misalnya akan menghadapi ujian esok harinya, tentunya cahaya telah menjadi faktor yang sangat penting. Memang membaca di tempat tidur juga tidak disarankan, namun jika didukung dengan pencayahaan yang tepat, kenapa tidak. Dan lampu tidur atau lampu meja disamping tampat tidur Anda bisa menjadi pilihan yang tepat.

Selain dapat memebantu Anda dalam pencayahaan ketika memebaca, lampu ini juga dapat memperindah ruangan. Selain efek cahayanya, modelnya pun juga bisa menampilkan kesan tersendiri dalam kamar Anda.

Kalau Anda tertarik untuk dapat mengisi ruangan pribadi Anda dengan lampu meja ini, tidak hanya asal memebeli. Namun juga disesuaikan dengan bentuk meja, serta konsep ruangan yang selama ini Anda ciptakan.

Berikut ada beberapa tips yang bisa menjadi panduan Anda ketika dalam membeli lampu meja untuk kamar Anda:

Pilih ukuran yang sesuai

Lampu ini Anda beli sebagai pelengkap meja kamar tidur Anda, jadi jangan memebeli lampu tidur dengan ukuran terlalu besar tauapun terlalu kecil, hingga tampak tidak proporsional. Itulah sebabnya Anda perlu memilih yang cocok dan menyatu dengan baik.

Sesuaikan interior

Kalau kamar Anda bernuansa sporty, misalnya banyak unsur sepak bola berarti jangan memilih lampu yang bergaya Victorian dengan ukiran yang detail. Karena lampu yang Anda pilih harus sesuai dengan gaya kamar Anda. Kalau kamar Anda bergaya interior yang klasik atau traditional, lempu berbahan kayu-kayuan bisa menjadi pilihan. Tak hanya serasi dengan ruangan, warna lampu pun juga harus Anda perhatikan.

Panjang lampu meja

Panjang serta tinggi lampu meja layak menjadi pertimbangan utama. Jika terlalu pendek, maka bahu Anda akan menutup semua cahaya. Kedengarannya hal ini juga merupakan suatu hal sepele, namun Anda tentunya tidak ingin membaca tanpa mendapat pencahayaan yang tepat bukan? Jika Anda membaca buku di malam hari, Anda mungkin ingin membaca dengan bertumpu pada bantal Anda yang nyaman daripada duduk di meja. Nah jika lampu menja Anda justru terlalu tinggi, ini juga dapat menyilaukan mata, dan Anda tidak mendapatkan cahaya yang maksimal. Inilah alasan mengapa Anda juga harus memeperhitungkan tinggi lampu yang akan Anda pilih.
    
Pilih lampu LED

Zaman sudah semakin berkembang pesat. Daripada Anda memanfaatkan lampu traditional, alangkah baiknya jika Anda beralih untuk menggunakan lampu LED. Selain lebih praktis, lampu jenis ini juga lebih hemat.

Setelah Anda mempertimbangkan banyak faktor diatas, jangan lupa sebelum membawa pulang lampu tersebut, cek terlebih dahulu bagaimana kondisinya. Dan perhatikan berapa besar daya atau watt nya. Anda tentunya tidak ingin tagihan Anda membengkak hanya karena lampu meja baru.

TIPS MEMBELI LAMPU MEJA YANG PAS BUAT ANDA

Batu hitam yang khusus diturunkan Allah SWT dari surga dinamakan Hajar Aswad. Batu itu terletak di sudut Kabah, tepatnya di pinggir pintu Kabah. Menyentuh Hajar Aswad, menciumnya, dan melambaikan tangan kepadanya adalah lambang kesetiaan dan kepatuhan mutlak kepada Allah SWT. Itulah yang dilakukan jamaah haji saat tawaf di pelataran Kabah.

Zaman dahulu, di suku-suku Arab selalu mengikat perjanjian satu sama lain dengan diakhiri berjabat tangan atau bersalaman. Perjanjian atau kesepakatan itu biasanya untuk mendapatkan jaminan keselamatan selama mereka menempuh perjalanan di padang pasir yang luas, baik keselamatan dirinya sendiri maupun keselamatan barang dagangannya.

Jabat tangan itu merupakan kesepakatan dan kesetiaan. Sebagaimana bersalaman dalam perjanjian suku-suku Arab tersebut, lambaian tangan kepada Hajar Aswad sebenarnya merupakan cara lain untuk mengungkapkan kesetiaan manusia kepada Allah SWT.

Kesetiaan tersebut perlu ditunjukkan agar mereka mendapatkan jaminan keselamatan selama menempuh perjalanan dalam kehidupan di dunia ini. Dengan ‘bersalaman’ dengan Hajar Aswad berarti menusia telah sepenuhnya menggantungkan hidup dan keselamatannya kepada Allah SWT.

Saco-Indonesia.com - Saat berkomunikasi dengan anak, para orang tua perlu disarankan untuk menyeimbangkan nada suara dengan kata-kata. Seorang anak tidak terlahir rmengerti suatu bahasa, tetapi mereka dibekali keinginan untuk berkomunikasi.

Anak mengenali bahasa dengan sangat cepat. Semua kata seakan melingkupi dunia mereka. Tetapi, kata-kata bekerja dengan dua arah. Ketika mendengar, anak juga akan bereaksi. Faktor orangtua dan lingkungan akan membentuk tingkah laku anak, bersandar pada bagaimana mereka memperhatikan apa yang diucapkan dan bagaimana cara mengatakannya.

- Masa bayi
Sebelum lahir, bayi sebenarnya sudah belajar bahasa. Ketika lahir, bayi tidak hanya cenderung mendengar suara ibu. Teapi juga pada bahasa yang kerap digunakan oleh ibu. Menurut penelitian yang dilakukan para ilmuwan dari Utrecht University, bayi dapat membedakan bahasa Belanda dan China sebaik orang dewasa.

Bayi juga mengerti irama dan warna bahasa jauh sebelum mereka mengerti artinya. Penting artinya untuk diingat para orang tua. Bayi akan lebih banyak menyimak dari nada bicara Anda ketimbang makna kata-kata yang diucapkan. Menggunakan bahasa dengan irama cepat dan nada yang keras akan mengakibatkan kegelisahan. Sementara menggunkan irama yang pelan dan lembut akan menenangkan bayi yang gelisah.

- Anak kecil dan usia pra-sekolah
Saat mereka mulai belajar jalan, beberapa anak mulai mengerti kata-kata. Masa kanak-kanak adalah yang tahap paling penting dalam mengembangkan kemampuan berbahasa seorang anak. Ketika berbicara, bayi tampak lucu, namun beberapa guru Montessori menyarankan orangtua berbicara dengan irama bicara layaknya orang dewasa. Gunakan kalimat yang lengkap dengan kata-kata yang akurat untuk menyebut anggota tubuh berikut fungsinya.

Berikan pula instruksi yang jelas. Saat menginjak usia pra skeolah, anak mulai mampu mengikuti tiga atau empat instruksi sekaligus. Ketika anak melakukan kesalahan, sebaiknya ditegur tanpa menghukum atau mengoloknya. Bila benar, tidak ada salahnya memberikan penghargaan untuk memacu semangatnya.

- Anak dan remaja

Gunakan bahasa bermakna positif pada anak dan remaja untuk membangun kekuatan personal dan pengendalian dirinya. Namun bukan berarti orangtua harus membanggakan anak, apapun yang dia lakukan. Misalnya, orangtua dapat mengatakan, "Hebat, sudah bisa membersihikan kamar sendiri," daripada sekedar berkata, "Anak mama hebat."

Kalimat pertama menunjukkan orangtua mengakui kemampuan anak. Sedangkan yang kedua justru menunjukkan kebanggaan orangtua tanpa mengakui kemampuan diri anak.

Bahasa, nada, dan kemarahan
Orangtua harus menjadi contoh. Anak yang hidup dengan kemarahan dan orang tua yang kasar, akan belajar hal yang sama. Bila orangtua merasa marah dan putus asa, sebaiknya jangan berteriak. Hal ini akan mengajarkan anak untuk melakukan hal yang sama. Daripada berteriak, orangtua lebih baik mengatakan apa yang membuat kesal. Misalnya jangan mengatakan,

"Kenapa kamu nggak ngerjain PR?," lebih baik "Kalau adek ngerjain PR, nilai adek jelek. mama bisa marah." Berbagai dengan suara yang tenang mengajarkan anak berkomunikasi secara baik dan jelas.

SEORANG MARINIR TELAH MENGANIAYA WARGA

Seorang bocah perempuan berusia delapan tahun di Kabupaten Mandailing Natal (Madina), Sumatera Utara, menjadi korban pemerkosaan yang dilakukan oleh ayah kandungnya.

Pemerkosaan tersebut dilakukan pelaku, Rm, lebih dari sekali. Sehabis beraksi, Rm mengancam anaknya agar tak memberitahukan ke orang lain.

Im, ibu korban, Selasa (21/5/2013), menuturkan, aksi bejat itu dilakukan suaminya saat rumah kosong. Selain di rumah, Rm juga beraksi di kamar mandi umum, tak jauh dari rumah mereka.

Kasus ini terungkap setelah sang anak mengeluh sakit saat buang air kecil. Im kemudian membawa anaknya ke mantri untuk diperiksa. Dari situ diketahui ada yang tidak beres dengan alat kelamin korban. Setelah didesak, korban pun menceritakan apa yang dialaminya.

Begitu menerima laporan dari Im, petugas Polres Madina langsung menangkap pelaku yang sempat kabur dari rumah.

Sementara itu, Rm mengaku hanya memerkosa anaknya dua kali. Dia juga mengakui mengancam anaknya bila melapor ke orang lain.

Pelaku dijerat dengan UU Perlindungan Anak dengan ancaman hukuman penjara maksimal 15 tahun. Sementara itu, saat ini korban masih trauma berat dan kini dirawat di rumah sakit.

The 2015 Met Gala has only officially begun, but there's a clear leader in the race for best couple, no small feat at an event that threatens to sap Hollywood of every celebrity it has for the duration of an East Coast evening.

That would be Marc Jacobs and his surprise guest (who, by some miracle, remained under wraps until their red carpet debut), Cher.

“This has been a dream of mine for a very, very long time,” Mr. Jacobs said.

It is Cher's first appearance at the Met Gala since 1997, when she arrived on the arm of Donatella Versace.

Last summer at a writers’ workshop in Oregon, the novelists Anthony Doerr, Karen Russell and Elissa Schappell were chatting over cocktails when they realized they had all published work in the same magazine. It wasn’t one of the usual literary outlets, like Tin House, The Paris Review or The New Yorker. It was Rhapsody, an in-flight magazine for United Airlines.

It seemed like a weird coincidence. Then again, considering Rhapsody’s growing roster of A-list fiction writers, maybe not. Since its first issue hit plane cabins a year and a half ago, Rhapsody has published original works by literary stars like Joyce Carol Oates, Rick Moody, Amy Bloom, Emma Straub and Mr. Doerr, who won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction two weeks ago.

As airlines try to distinguish their high-end service with luxuries like private sleeping chambers, showers, butler service and meals from five-star chefs, United Airlines is offering a loftier, more cerebral amenity to its first-class and business-class passengers: elegant prose by prominent novelists. There are no airport maps or disheartening lists of in-flight meal and entertainment options in Rhapsody. Instead, the magazine has published ruminative first-person travel accounts, cultural dispatches and probing essays about flight by more than 30 literary fiction writers.

An airline might seem like an odd literary patron. But as publishers and writers look for new ways to reach readers in a shaky retail climate, many have formed corporate alliances with transit companies, including American Airlines, JetBlue and Amtrak, that provide a captive audience.

Mark Krolick, United Airlines’ managing director of marketing and product development, said the quality of the writing in Rhapsody brings a patina of sophistication to its first-class service, along with other opulent touches like mood lighting, soft music and a branded scent.

“The high-end leisure or business-class traveler has higher expectations, even in the entertainment we provide,” he said.

Some of Rhapsody’s contributing writers say they were lured by the promise of free airfare and luxury accommodations provided by United, as well as exposure to an elite audience of some two million first-class and business-class travelers.

“It’s not your normal Park Slope Community Bookstore types who read Rhapsody,” Mr. Moody, author of the 1994 novel “The Ice Storm,” who wrote an introspective, philosophical piece about traveling to the Aran Islands of Ireland for Rhapsody, said in an email. “I’m not sure I myself am in that Rhapsody demographic, but I would like them to buy my books one day.”

In addition to offering travel perks, the magazine pays well and gives writers freedom, within reason, to choose their subject matter and write with style. Certain genres of flight stories are off limits, naturally: no plane crashes or woeful tales of lost luggage or rude flight attendants, and nothing too risqué.

“We’re not going to have someone write about joining the mile-high club,” said Jordan Heller, the editor in chief of Rhapsody. “Despite those restrictions, we’ve managed to come up with a lot of high-minded literary content.”

Guiding writers toward the right idea occasionally requires some gentle prodding. When Rhapsody’s executive editor asked Ms. Russell to contribute an essay about a memorable flight experience, she first pitched a story about the time she was chaperoning a group of teenagers on a trip to Europe, and their delayed plane sat at the airport in New York for several hours while other passengers got progressively drunker.

“He pointed out that disaster flights are not what people want to read about when they’re in transit, and very diplomatically suggested that maybe people want to read something that casts air travel in a more positive light,” said Ms. Russell, whose novel “Swamplandia!” was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.

She turned in a nostalgia-tinged essay about her first flight on a trip to Disney World when she was 6. “The Magic Kingdom was an anticlimax,” she wrote. “What ride could compare to that first flight?”

Ms. Oates also wrote about her first flight, in a tiny yellow propeller plane piloted by her father. The novelist Joyce Maynard told of the constant disappointment of never seeing her books in airport bookstores and the thrill of finally spotting a fellow plane passenger reading her novel “Labor Day.” Emily St. John Mandel, who was a finalist for the National Book Award in fiction last year, wrote about agonizing over which books to bring on a long flight.

“There’s nobody that’s looked down their noses at us as an in-flight magazine,” said Sean Manning, the magazine’s executive editor. “As big as these people are in the literary world, there’s still this untapped audience for them of luxury travelers.”

United is one of a handful of companies showcasing work by literary writers as a way to elevate their brands and engage customers. Chipotle has printed original work from writers like Toni Morrison, Jeffrey Eugenides and Barbara Kingsolver on its disposable cups and paper bags. The eyeglass company Warby Parker hosts parties for authors and sells books from 14 independent publishers in its stores.

JetBlue offers around 40 e-books from HarperCollins and Penguin Random House on its free wireless network, allowing passengers to read free samples and buy and download books. JetBlue will start offering 11 digital titles from Simon & Schuster soon. Amtrak recently forged an alliance with Penguin Random House to provide free digital samples from 28 popular titles, which passengers can buy and download over Amtrak’s admittedly spotty wireless service.

Amtrak is becoming an incubator for literary talent in its own right. Last year, it started a residency program, offering writers a free long-distance train trip and complimentary food. More than 16,000 writers applied and 24 made the cut.

Like Amtrak, Rhapsody has found that writers are eager to get onboard. On a rainy spring afternoon, Rhapsody’s editorial staff sat around a conference table discussing the June issue, which will feature an essay by the novelist Hannah Pittard and an unpublished short story by the late Elmore Leonard.

“Do you have that photo of Elmore Leonard? Can I see it?” Mr. Heller, the editor in chief, asked Rhapsody’s design director, Christos Hannides. Mr. Hannides slid it across the table and noted that they also had a photograph of cowboy spurs. “It’s very simple; it won’t take away from the literature,” he said.

Rhapsody’s office, an open space with exposed pipes and a vaulted brick ceiling, sits in Dumbo at the epicenter of literary Brooklyn, in the same converted tea warehouse as the literary journal N+1 and the digital publisher Atavist. Two of the magazine’s seven staff members hold graduate degrees in creative writing. Mr. Manning, the executive editor, has published a memoir and edited five literary anthologies.

Mr. Manning said Rhapsody was conceived from the start as a place for literary novelists to write with voice and style, and nobody had been put off that their work would live in plane cabins and airport lounges.

Still, some contributors say they wish the magazine were more widely circulated.

“I would love it if I could read it,” said Ms. Schappell, a Brooklyn-based novelist who wrote a feature story for Rhapsody’s inaugural issue. “But I never fly first class.”

Imagine an elite professional services firm with a high-performing, workaholic culture. Everyone is expected to turn on a dime to serve a client, travel at a moment’s notice, and be available pretty much every evening and weekend. It can make for a grueling work life, but at the highest levels of accounting, law, investment banking and consulting firms, it is just the way things are.

Except for one dirty little secret: Some of the people ostensibly turning in those 80- or 90-hour workweeks, particularly men, may just be faking it.

Many of them were, at least, at one elite consulting firm studied by Erin Reid, a professor at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. It’s impossible to know if what she learned at that unidentified consulting firm applies across the world of work more broadly. But her research, published in the academic journal Organization Science, offers a way to understand how the professional world differs between men and women, and some of the ways a hard-charging culture that emphasizes long hours above all can make some companies worse off.

Ms. Reid interviewed more than 100 people in the American offices of a global consulting firm and had access to performance reviews and internal human resources documents. At the firm there was a strong culture around long hours and responding to clients promptly.

“When the client needs me to be somewhere, I just have to be there,” said one of the consultants Ms. Reid interviewed. “And if you can’t be there, it’s probably because you’ve got another client meeting at the same time. You know it’s tough to say I can’t be there because my son had a Cub Scout meeting.”

Some people fully embraced this culture and put in the long hours, and they tended to be top performers. Others openly pushed back against it, insisting upon lighter and more flexible work hours, or less travel; they were punished in their performance reviews.

The third group is most interesting. Some 31 percent of the men and 11 percent of the women whose records Ms. Reid examined managed to achieve the benefits of a more moderate work schedule without explicitly asking for it.

They made an effort to line up clients who were local, reducing the need for travel. When they skipped work to spend time with their children or spouse, they didn’t call attention to it. One team on which several members had small children agreed among themselves to cover for one another so that everyone could have more flexible hours.

A male junior manager described working to have repeat consulting engagements with a company near enough to his home that he could take care of it with day trips. “I try to head out by 5, get home at 5:30, have dinner, play with my daughter,” he said, adding that he generally kept weekend work down to two hours of catching up on email.

Despite the limited hours, he said: “I know what clients are expecting. So I deliver above that.” He received a high performance review and a promotion.

What is fascinating about the firm Ms. Reid studied is that these people, who in her terminology were “passing” as workaholics, received performance reviews that were as strong as their hyper-ambitious colleagues. For people who were good at faking it, there was no real damage done by their lighter workloads.

It calls to mind the episode of “Seinfeld” in which George Costanza leaves his car in the parking lot at Yankee Stadium, where he works, and gets a promotion because his boss sees the car and thinks he is getting to work earlier and staying later than anyone else. (The strategy goes awry for him, and is not recommended for any aspiring partners in a consulting firm.)

A second finding is that women, particularly those with young children, were much more likely to request greater flexibility through more formal means, such as returning from maternity leave with an explicitly reduced schedule. Men who requested a paternity leave seemed to be punished come review time, and so may have felt more need to take time to spend with their families through those unofficial methods.

The result of this is easy to see: Those specifically requesting a lighter workload, who were disproportionately women, suffered in their performance reviews; those who took a lighter workload more discreetly didn’t suffer. The maxim of “ask forgiveness, not permission” seemed to apply.

It would be dangerous to extrapolate too much from a study at one firm, but Ms. Reid said in an interview that since publishing a summary of her research in Harvard Business Review she has heard from people in a variety of industries describing the same dynamic.

High-octane professional service firms are that way for a reason, and no one would doubt that insane hours and lots of travel can be necessary if you’re a lawyer on the verge of a big trial, an accountant right before tax day or an investment banker advising on a huge merger.

But the fact that the consultants who quietly lightened their workload did just as well in their performance reviews as those who were truly working 80 or more hours a week suggests that in normal times, heavy workloads may be more about signaling devotion to a firm than really being more productive. The person working 80 hours isn’t necessarily serving clients any better than the person working 50.

In other words, maybe the real problem isn’t men faking greater devotion to their jobs. Maybe it’s that too many companies reward the wrong things, favoring the illusion of extraordinary effort over actual productivity.

Since a white police officer, Darren Wilson fatally shot unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in a confrontation last August in Ferguson, Mo., there have been many other cases in which the police have shot and killed suspects, some of them unarmed. Mr. Brown's death set off protests throughout the country, pushing law enforcement into the spotlight and sparking a public debate on police tactics. Here is a selection of police shootings that have been reported by news organizations since Mr. Brown's death. In some cases, investigations are continuing.
