TEDWomen 2013: Invented Here. Registration now open.


TED Blog

Invented-Here-mainThe old saying goes: “Necessity is the mother of invention.” Folded into this truism is a nugget of wisdom: that women so often are the ones driving innovation, the creative powerhouses surfacing new concepts, and the active force crystalizing change in communities near and far. This is the spirit that TEDWomen 2013 will celebrate with its theme: Invented Here.

TEDWomen 2013 will be held in San Francisco, December 4-6, 2013, at the new SFJAZZ Center. Registration for the event opens today. Head to the TEDWomen site to find out how to apply »

But even if you can’t travel, you can be a part of the TEDWomen experience. On December 5, more than 150 TEDx events around the world will share the TEDWomen livestream and present local speakers with their own takes on invention and re-invention, making the day about the global experience of women.

TEDWomen has become a powerful…

When TED began in 1984, it was simply a conference. But in the 30 years since, we’ve grown into an international organization with a constellation of departments and initiatives — TED.com, two annual classes of TED Fellows, the million dollar TED Prize, the student-friendly TED-Ed, the business-focused TED Institute. To help you keep it all straight, designer Mike Andersen of Hybrid Design created this handy graphic to show how all our assorted programs revolve around each other, for the maximum spreading of ideas.

Temukan pasangan hidupmu melalui #taaruf

Kultwit dari @udayusuf

April 29, 2012

  1. bismillah 🙂 sahabat semua, salah satu pola yang diperkenalkan oleh banyak orang untuk mengenal calon pasangan hidup sering disebut dengan #taaruf
  2. tujuan dari #taaruf adalah mengenal calon pasangan kita dengan cara yang sesuai dengan ajaran Islam. Tidak berlebihan dalam “perkenalan”?
  3. Islam mewajibkan kita mengenal calon pasangan kita. agar tidak seperti membeli kucing dalam karung. Maka mekanisme #taaruf ini lahir
  4. ada dua calon pasangan bertemu dengan seorang atau lebih muhrim yang menemani proses saling mengenalnya. Menjaga diri dari setan #taaruf
  5. kamu suka seseorang itu fitrah, itulah manusia. Maka halal saja rasa…

No Substitutes of #Ramadhan #1434H


2013-07-05 18.43.36
 I feel the wind brush across my face
Like an invisible wave crashing over me
I started holding my breath the moment I left
Wondering what the day was going to bring for me
But there’s no way that I could every prepare
For the scope of it all, for the chill in the air
The cold of the rain, the warmth of the day
I’m never gonna be the same
The whole world’s racing by
And no words can describe how this feels inside
come and go so fast,
these moments never last
‘Cause something’s feel incomplete,
not quite how it should be
‘Cause every road that I’ve taken
Can never be mistaken for the one that now is under my feet
And I realize with open eyes
Either Ramadhan or Life,
Every second that we have is once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime
Cause there is no substitute,
No substitute….
