Harry Potter 6 Secrets !

Check it out, Potter-heads!

With less than a month to go before Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters (mark July 15 on your calendars, if you haven't already), a new batch of posters have made their way onto the Internet. And here they are for your enjoyment! Pretty striking, huh?

In addition to the new posters, screenwriter Steve Kloves has spilled some fresh Harry Potter dirt to the Los Angeles Times. In a wide-ranging interview, Kloves reveals that, among the 12 uses for dragon's blood, it makes a pretty dandy spot remover. (This, revealed to him by author J.K. Rowling herself.)

Kloves also dishes about Half-Blood Prince's climactic scene between Snape and Dumbledore, and how it will play out on the big screen.

"It is informed by everything [Potter readers] have come to know is true. So if you watch the film carefully, there are performance moments that are quite extraordinary, Alan Rickman [who plays Snape] especially," Kloves reveals. "There is something we added that you can look forward to, a short scene between Harry and Snape prior to the big event. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays to the audience. It should be a haunting moment for Harry. While I was writing, I just had a notion about a moment between him and Snape, something Harry could look back on and question as to why he didn’t act differently."

Ooh, we're already atingle with anticipation!

Have your say in the comments section: Do you think Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will match up to previous Harry Potter installments?



It's great story ! I've read all the book.

Five New Harry Potter 6 Posters

Warner Bros. Pictures have debuted five new character poster for “Harry Potter 6” (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.)

Synopsis: Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn’t counted on Romilda Vane’s chocolates! And then there’s Hermione, simpering with jealously but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.”

This is the sixth book in J.K. Rowling’s immensely popular series. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Michael Gambon, Tom Felton, Jim Broadbent, Evanna Lynch, and Bonnie Wright.“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” hits theaters on July 15th 2009.The IMAX release will be delayed by two weeks till July 29th.

Mengajar Matematika pada Anak Diskalkulia

Banyak orang memandang matematika sebagai pelajaran yang paling sulit. Meskipun demikian semua orang harus mempelajarinya karena matematika merupakan sarana untuk memecahkan masalah sehari – hari. Tak terkecuali pada anak yang berkesulitan beajar juga harus mempelajarinya. Penguasaan matematika diperlukan oleh setiap orang sejak dini. Oleh karena itu pembelajaran matematika juga harus diberikan kepada semua orang. Hal ini dilakukan karena matematika merupakan ilmu yang menjadi dasar bagi perkembangan ilmu – ilmu lain.
Namun demikian dalam memberikan pelajaran guru tidak bisa memberikan materi dengan menggunakan metode yang sama atau dengan kata lain dalam mengajar guru menyama ratakan kemampuan murid dengan menggunakan metode yang sama. Salah satu contoh hal ini berlaku pada siswa yang mengalami berkesulitan belajar matematika. Guru tidak bisa mengajarkan matematika dengan menggunakan pendekatan yang sama seperti mengajar siswa normal yang lainnya.
Banyak definisi tentang anak yang berkesulitan belajar matematika, salah satunya adalah menurut The National Joint Comitte for Learning Disabilities (NJCLD) (dalam Abdurrahman, 2003) mengemukakan definisi kesulitan belajar sebagai berikut :
Kesulitan belajar mennjuk pada sekelompok kesulitan yang dimanifestasikan dalam bentuk kesuliatn yang nyata dalam kemahiran dan penggunaan kemampuan mendengarkan, bercakap – cakap, membaca, menulis, menalar, atau kemampuan dalam bidang studi matematika. Gangguan tersebut instrinsik dan diduga oleh adanya disfungsi system saraf pusat. Meskipun suatu kesulitan belajar mungkin terjadi bersamaan dengan adanya kondisi lain yang mengganggu (misalnya gangguan sensoris, tunagrahita, hambatan social dan emosional) atau berbagai pengaruh lingkungan misalnya perbedaan budaya, pembelajaran yang tidak tepat, faktor – faktor psikogenik.

Anak yang berkesulitan belajar matematika atau yang disebut dengan diskalkulia (dyscalculis) menurut Lerner (dalam Abdurrahman, 2003) ada beberapa karakteristik yaitu (1) adanya gangguan dalam hubungan keruangan, (2) abnormalitas persepsi visual, (3) asosiasi visual – motor, (4) perseverasi, (5) kesulitan mengenal dan memahami symbol, (6) gannguan penhayaan tubuh, (7) kesulitan dalam bahasa dan membaca, dan (8) performance IQ jauh lebih rendah daripada sekor verbal IQ.
Guru dapat membantu anak berkesulitan belajar matematika dengan mengenal berbagai kesalahan umum yang dilakukan anak dalam menyelesaikan tugas – tugas dalam bidang studi matematika. Dengan demikian, pembelajaran matematika dapat diarahkan pada kesalahan – kesalahan tersebut. Atau dengan kata lain pembelajarannya lebih ditekankan pada hal – hal yang siswa tersebut masih kurang menguasai. Guru harus memeriksa pekerjaan atau tugas – tugas dari siswea dan meminta siswa menjelaskan bagaimana ia sampai pada penggunaan pemecahan masalah seperti itu. Guru juga perlu melakukan observasi terhadap cara yang digunakan oleh siswa dan melakukan perbaikan terhadap kesalahan – kesalahan tersebut.


Pengajaran matematika pada anak yang menalami kesulitan belajar matematika harus memperhatikan prinsip – prinsip mengajar matematika. Prinsip mengajar matematika sangat membantu guru dalam upaya mencapai keberhasilan dalam mengajar matematika. Dalam mengajar matematika hendaknya guru menyiapkan anak untuk mempelajari bidang studi matematika. Banyak anak berkesulitan belajar matematika yang penyebabnya adalah kurangnya kesiapan anak untuk mempelajari bidang studi matematika. Anak yang tidak siap saat belajar matematika akan semakin ketinggalan dalam pelajaran karena pelajaran matematika yang bersifat saling terkait antara materi yang akan dipelajari dengan materi yang telah dipelajari.
Siswa yang sudah siap belajar akan memungkinkan guru untuk mengajarkan matematika dengan cara maju artinya pada saat mengjarakan hendaknya guru mengajarkan dari hal – hal yang konkret ke abstrak. Hal ini membuat siswa mudah memahami konsep – konsep matematika dengan baik. Hal – hal yang konkret membuat siswa melihat dan merasakan secara langsung berbagai objek atau benda yang bisa ia gunakan untuk mengembangkan ketrampilan matematikanya. Setela anak secara konkret mengerti atau menguasi keterampilan matematika siswa diarahkan untuk menggatikan objek atau benda tadi menjadi symbol – symbol atau gambar dalam matematika.
Waktu lebih yang diberikan oleh guru akan memberi banyak kesempatan kepada siswa untuk berlatih dan mengulang agar siswa mampu mengaplikasikan konsep yang telah dipelajari. Guru harus mampu memahami akan kekurangan dan kelebihan siswa atau kemampuan dan ketidakmampuan siswanya sehingga latihan yang diberikan kepada siswanya tidak terlalu berat ataupun tidak terlalu ringan. Siswa yang belajar dari hal – hal konkret dan latihan – latihan yang sesuai dengan tahapan – tahapan artinya latihan yng diberikan dimulai dari hal – hal yang mudah ke sulit membuat siswa memperoleh kesempatan untuk menggeneralisasikan keterampilannya kedalam banyak hal yang lain. Sebagai contoh siswa dapat berlatih berhitung dengan banyak soal – soal cerita yang diberikan oleh guru atau siswa sendiri. Tujuannya adalah siswa memperoleh keterampilan – keterampilan baru dalam mengenal dan mengaplikasikan konsep – konsep operasi hitung terhadap situasi yang berbeda atau baru.
Pendekatan tersebut di atas akan menghasilkan sesuatu yang baik bagi siswa manakala guru dalam mengaplikasinnya secara konsisten. Sehingga kesulitan belajar matematika pada anak yang mengalami kesulitan belajar matematika (diskalkulia)dapat teratasi. Dan anak yang mengalami kesulitan belajar matematika (diskalkulia) dapat belajar matematika secara normal seperti siswa pada umunya. Harapan yang tidak kala pentingnya adalah bahwa dengan belajar matematika yang mengalami kesulitan belajar matematika (diskalkulia) dapat memecahkan masalah sehari – hari yang dihadapinya yang berkaitan dengan matematika.

Perlukah Bimbingan Belajar ?

Pertanyaan seperti di atas sering muncul pada waktu-waktu tertentu dari pihak orang tua siswa maupun masyarakat pada umumnya yang mempunyai kepedulian terhadap pendidikan di negeri ini. Pertanyaan akan meluncur ketika anak-anak kita akan menghadapi ujian nasional dan tes masuk perguruan tinggi , karena pada saat itulah para orang tua siswa , terutama yang anaknya duduk di kelas 12 (kelas 3) SMA , sebab saat itulah beban besar untuk mengeluarkan biaya pendidikan anak-anaknya.

Bimbingan belajar sangatlah perlu, sebab bimbingan belajar tidak berarti mengeluarkan biaya, atau tidak sepenuhnya benar bahwa bimbingan belajar selalu berhubungan dengan mengeluarkan biaya Benarkah ? Sangat benar, alasannya ? Cobalah simak tulisan berikut !
  • Kehidupan Demokrasi : Guru tidak lagi menjadi pusat dan siswa tidak hanya menjadi peserta pasif dalam kegiatan pendidikan. Guru hanya membantu siswa untuk dapat mengambil keputusannya sendiri.
  • Perbedaan Individual : Pembelajaran yang umumnya dilakukan secara klasikal kurang memperhatikan perbedaan siswa dalam kemampuan dan cara belajarnya sehingga beberapa siswa mungkin akan mengalami kesulitan.
  • Perkembangan Norma Hidup : Masyarakat berubah secara dinamis. Demikian pula dengan berbagai norma hidup yang ada di dalamnya. Setiap orang harus bisa beradaptasi dengan berbagai perubahan tersebut.
  • Masa Perkembangan : Seorang individu mengalami perkembangan dalam berbagai aspek dalam dirinya dan perubahan tuntutan lingkungan terhadap dirinya. Diperlukan penyesuaian diri untuk menghadapi perubahan-perubahan tersebut.
  • Perkembangan Industri : Seiring dengan perkembangan teknologi yang cepat, industri juga berkembang dengan pesat. Untuk memiliki karir yang baik, siswa harus bisa mengantisipasi keadaan tersebut. (sumber :ensiklopedia indonesia, dicari dengan kata kunci “bimbingan”)
Belajar adalah perubahan yang relatif permanen dalam perilaku atau potensi perilaku sebagai hasil dari pengalaman atau latihan yang diperkuat.
Belajar merupakan akibat adanya interaksi antara stimulus dan respon (Slavin, 2000:143). Seseorang dianggap telah belajar sesuatu jika dia dapat menunjukkan perubahan perilakunya. Menurut teori ini dalam belajar yang penting adalah input yang berupa stimulus dan output yang berupa respon. Stimulus adalah apa saja yang diberikan guru kepada pelajar, sedangkan respon berupa reaksi atau tanggapan
pelajar terhadap stimulus yang diberikan oleh guru tersebut. Proses yang terjadi antara stimulus dan respon tidak penting untuk diperhatikan karena tidak dapat diamati dan tidak dapat diukur. Yang dapat diamati adalah stimulus dan respon, oleh karena itu apa yang diberikan oleh guru (stimulus) dan apa yang diterima oleh pelajar
(respon) harus dapat diamati dan diukur.

  • Perubahan akibat belajar dapat terjadi dalam berbagai bentuk perilaku, dari ranah kognitif, afektif, dan/atau psikomotor. Tidak terbatas hanya penambahan pengetahuan saja.
  • Sifat perubahannya relatif permanen, tidak akan kembali kepada keadaan semula. Tidak bisa diterapkan pada perubahan akibat situasi sesaat, seperti perubahan akibat kelelahan, sakit, mabuk, dan sebagainya.
  • Perubahannya tidak harus langsung mengikuti pengalaman belajar. Perubahan yang segera terjadi umumnya tidak dalam bentuk perilaku, tapi terutama hanya dalam potensi seseorang untuk berperilaku.
  • Perubahan terjadi akibat adanya suatu pengalaman atau latihan. Berbeda dengan perubahan serta-merta akibat refleks atau perilaku yang bersifat naluriah.
  • Perubahan akan lebih mudah terjadi bila disertai adanya penguat, berupa ganjaran yang diterima - hadiah atau hukuman - sebagai konsekuensi adanya perubahan perilaku tersebut.(sumber : ensiklopedia berbahasa Indonesia, dicari dengan kata kunci “belajar”)

Kesimpulannya, bimbingan belajar sangatlah penting dan tidak harus selalu melalui lembaga-lembaga bimbingan belajar yang kian banyak tersebar dari kota-kota besar sampai kota kecamatan, serta perlu mengeluarkan biaya besar untuk sekedar mengikuti bimbingan belajar sebuah mata pelajaran.
Yang diperlukan sekarang adalah menciptakan sebuah bimbingan dari pihak orang tua maupun guru supaya siswa memiliki kemauan, kebiasaan , dan motivasi untuk mau membuka kembali materi pengajaran yang telah mereka dapat di dalam kelas untuk dipelajari kembali serta dikembangkan. Sudah seharusnya siswa di tingkat sekolah menengah mulai menyadari kebutuhan bagi dirinya terhadap suatu ilmu , sehingga memiliki motivasi, kemauan untuk mencari dan mengembangkan sendiri sebab tidak mustahil hal itu dapat dilakukan oleh setiap siswa di jaman sekarang, yang serba mudah untuk mendapat berbagai macam informasi.

In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Voldemort is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Together they work to find the key to unlock Voldemort's defenses and, to this end, Dumbledore recruits his old friend and colleague, the well-connected and unsuspecting bon vivant Professor Horace Slughorn, whom he believes holds crucial information.

Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Harry finds himself more and more drawn to Ginny, but so is Dean Thomas. And Lavender Brown has decided that Ron is the one for her, only she hadn't counted on Romilda Vane's chocolates! And then there's Hermione, simmering with jealousy but determined not to show her feelings. As romance blossoms, one student remains aloof. He is determined to make his mark, albeit a dark one. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

David Yates, who directed the 2007 summer blockbuster "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," returned to direct "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." David Heyman, the producer of all of the Harry Potter films, is producing the film, together with David Barron. Screenwriter Steve Kloves, who scripted the first four installments of the film franchise, adapted the screenplay based on the book by J.K. Rowling.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents a Heyday Films production, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince," the much-anticipated sixth installment of the Warner Bros. Pictures Harry Potter film franchise based on the beloved novels by J.K. Rowling. Once again heading the cast, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprise their roles as young wizards Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, who are facing new challenges and dangers in the wake of Lord Voldemort's return. They are reunited with returning Harry Potter cast members, including Helena Bonham Carter, David Bradley, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, Natalia Tena, Julie Walters and David Thewlis, as well as Evanna Lynch, Matthew Lewis and Bonnie Wright.

Two award-winning actors joined the film's all-star cast in their first Harry Potter film. Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent ("Iris," "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe") plays Potions Professor Horace Slughorn. Helen McCrory ("Becoming Jane," "The Queen") plays Narcissa Malfoy, mother to Draco Malfoy and sister to the evil Bellatrix Lestrange.

Additionally, several young newcomers are making their feature film debuts in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince." Jessie Cave won the role of Lavender Brown, who has eyes for Ron Weasley. Nine-year-old Hero Fiennes Tiffin is seen in the role of the young Tom Riddle at age 11, while 16-year-old Frank Dillane plays the teenage Riddle, who is already on the path to becoming the evil Lord Voldemort.

Will recent slump in DVD sales effect Half-Blood Prince?

The Los Angeles Times has an interesting piece on how a recent slump in DVD sales may effect Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince's performance. Or will it?

[WB President Alan] Horn said he doesn't expect the soft DVD market to hamper sales of "Half-Blood Prince" because it's a "unique property." He believes that although budget-conscious consumers have become more selective about the DVDs they purchase, they have been demonstrating a desire to own big films like "Potter," "Transformers," "Twilight" and Warner Bros.' "The Dark Knight," which according to The-Numbers.com was 2008's top DVD with more than 12.7 million units sold domestically.

Although Horn took a lot of flak from "Potter" fans when the studio pushed back the release of "Half-Blood Prince" to July from last November, the move may help boost DVD sales because the film will be released during the heavy gift-buying holiday season.

That last sentence confirms that the Half-Blood Prince DVD will indeed see a release before the holiday season! Thanks to Foss for the tip.

Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince' Embraces Complicated Story

This is article from MTV :

Producer David Heyman tells us why adding Jim Broadbent and getting rid of flashbacks was necessary.
By Brian Warmoth

Fill up that bucket of popcorn and order 64 ounces of your favorite soda — the summer movie season has nearly begun! As always, MTV News has it covered for you every which way with our annual Summer Movie Preview Week! Keep checking MTVNews.com all week for exclusive interviews and clips from "Terminator Salvation," "Harry Potter," "Star Trek," "Inglourious Basterds" and more.

Few film franchises live to see six installments, let alone the eight that J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" books will have produced by the end of 2010.


In July, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" faces the challenge of sharing the title hero's spotlight with a cluster of crucial story lines and brings a new major character to the screen. Producer David Heyman, who has been with the "Harry Potter" movies from the beginning, understands the charge of staying loyal to the source material while keeping the screenplays trimmed enough to flow for new audiences.

"The sixth film is very different," Heyman told MTV News, citing the multiple plot threads in "The Half-Blood Prince" that set it apart of the more Harry-focused "Order of the Phoenix."

"We're following Harry and his relationship with Dumbledore and his search for this past and the puzzle and the key to defeating Voldemort," the producer said. "We're seeing some of Voldemort's backstory; we're seeing the budding romantic relationship between Harry and Ginny Weasley and the one between Ron and Hermione, as well as Malfoy."

Giving each of the central characters their due attention, in addition to the romantic developments within Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, demanded that director David Yates and the film's producers made a few difficult decisions. In the interests of streamlining the story, they chose to weed out some of the book's flashback sequences, several of which provide key insights into Voldemort's history.

"The most difficult choice was to edit out some of the flashbacks in the memories that Harry explores," Heyman explained. "Each film has to exist on its own terms, and alas, within these memories, they're really significant and actually in the whole body of the series play a very significant part, but within the film they are detours in a way, going into a story about Voldemort, who doesn't really appear in this film."

Paring down Harry's mystic visions was also necessary to make way for another source of revelations in "The Half-Blood Prince": Professor Dumbledore's old colleague Horace Slughorn, played by Jim Broadbent, a newcomer to the "Potter" movies who Heyman credited as an easy casting pick.

"He was absolutely our first choice," Heyman recalled. "You look at Jim's eyes, and you can read so much into them."

As dark as the "Harry Potter" saga gets with "The Half-Blood Prince," the romantic and humorous notes Rowling originally included are just as important leading into her final volume, "The Deathly Hallows," which is currently being filmed in two parts.

"What there also is besides great drama is great humor and great humanity," he said. According to Heyman, nailing Slughorn's casting was crucial to balancing out those dimensions in the sixth movie.

"We wanted Slughorn to be a source of humor," the producer said. "You wanted a character who had airs of grandeur but at the same time was really sympathetic and tragic."

Now that "The Half-Blood Prince" is set for its July 15 release date, Heyman and his latest director David Yates will get to see how far their separate story lines have come, surpassing even Heyman's original expectations.

"The truth is, when I began with [director] Chris Columbus, I thought I was making one film — and if I was lucky, two," Heyman stated. Since moving on to director Alfonso CuarĂ³n and later to Mike Newell before settling on Yates for the series' final three sequels, Heyman has plenty of confidence now that "The Half-Blood Prince" is ready to make its summer debut.

"One of the great things about working with David Yates is that he's a wonderful director and he's incredibly open and communicative," Heyman said. "He's incredibly ambitious for the franchise, just as I am."

Harry Potter 6 Review

The long-awaited, eagerly anticipated, arguably over-hyped Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has arrived, and the question on the minds of kids, adults, fans, and skeptics alike is, "Is it worth the hype?" The answer, luckily, is simple: yep. A magnificent spectacle more than worth the price of admission, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will blow you away. However, given that so much has gone into protecting the secrets of the book (including armored trucks and injunctions), don't expect any spoilers in this review. It's much more fun not knowing what's coming--and in the case of Rowling's delicious sixth book, you don't want to know. Just sit tight, despite the earth-shattering revelations that will have your head in your hands as you hope the words will rearrange themselves into a different story. But take one warning to heart: do not open Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince until you have first found a secluded spot, safe from curious eyes, where you can tuck in for a good long read. Because once you start, you won't stop until you reach the very last page.
A darker book than any in the series thus far with a level of sophistication belying its genre, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince moves the series into murkier waters and marks the arrival of Rowling onto the adult literary scene. While she has long been praised for her cleverness and wit, the strength of Book 6 lies in her subtle development of key characters, as well as her carefully nuanced depiction of a community at war. In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, no one and nothing is safe, including preconceived notions of good and evil and of right and wrong. With each book in her increasingly remarkable series, fans have nervously watched J.K. Rowling raise the stakes; gone are the simple delights of butterbeer and enchanted candy, and days when the worst ailment could be cured by a bite of chocolate. A series that began as a colorful lark full of magic and discovery has become a dark and deadly war zone. But this should not come as a shock to loyal readers. Rowling readied fans with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by killing off popular characters and engaging the young students in battle. Still, there is an unexpected bleakness from the start of Book 6 that casts a mean shadow over Quidditch games, silly flirtations, and mountains of homework. Ready or not, the tremendous ending of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will leave stunned fans wondering what great and terrible events await in Book 7 if this sinister darkness is meant to light the way. --Daphne Durham

Senam Mata untuk Relaksasi

Tanpa kita sadari beragam aktivitas kita seringkali 'menyiksa' mata kita, misalnya, bekerja di depan komputer tanpa beristirahat, atau membaca dengan posisi tubuh yang tidak tepat. Hal-hal tersebut membuat mata kita tidak rileks. Akibat yang paling sering terjadi adalah mata terasa perih karena iritasi. Selain itu, mata bisa menjadi merah. Akibat lainnya, mata menderita rabun jauh atau dekat. Ketegangan otot di kelopak mata juga dapat mengakibatkan pergeseran bola mata. Lebih gawat lagi, bisa berakibat katarak.

Untuk meredakan kelelahan mata, Anda dapat menggunakan telapak tangan. Caranya, letakan telapak tangan di masing-masing mata, lalu silangkan jari-jari kedua tangan satu sama lain. Setelah kedua mata tertutup oleh telapak tangan dan tak ada cahaya yang masuk melalui sela-sela jari, biarkan mata terbuka. Tahan posisi itu beberapa saat dan pastikan, Anda benar-benar melihat kegelapan. Lakukan ini beberapa kali sehari.
Selain mengistirahatkan mata sejenak di sela-sela aktivitas, Anda juga dapat merawat kedua mata Anda dengan melakukan senam mata. Berikut adalah latihan yang dapat Anda lakukan :
  1. Pijat daerah bawah kedua mata menggunakan jari tengah.
  2. Tekan sedikit dan rasakan otot-otot mata yang kaku (jika baru pertama kali mencoba, jangan terlalu berlebihan karena dapat menyebabkan nyeri kepala).
  3. Kemudian, beralih pada tulang atas mata. Berikan pijatan beberapa kali .
  4. Pijat bagian urat-urat yang kaku di bagian atas mata dekat hidung, lalu arahkan ke sudut mata dan pijat perlahan. Lalu pindah ke otot-otot di bagian atas alis.

Lakukan hal-hal di atas secara rutin. Lalu, yang terpenting, jangan 'menyiksa' mata Anda dengan memforsirnya tanpa beristirahat.

Orang Gemuk Punya Harapan Hidup Lebih Lama

Hasil studi terbaru yang digelar oleh Kementerian Kesehatan, Tenaga Kerja, dan Kesejahteraan Rakyat Jepang memperlihatkan masyarakat yang berusia 40 tahun dan memiliki kelebihan berat badan ternyata memiliki usia harapan hidup lebih lama ketimbang kelompok masyarakat lainnya.

"Kabar baik (paling tidak) bagi orang yang gemuk (chubby people)," demikian Yomiuri Shimbun di Tokyo, Kamis, mengutip studi yang mencoba mencari tahu upaya memiliki panjang umur tersebut.

Studi itu memperlihatkan kelompok masyarakat yang tergolong kurus (thin) dengan berat badan dibawah 53,5kg memiliki usia harapan hidup yang paling pendek. Kelompok ini juga rata-rata berpeluang meninggal enam atau tujuh tahun lebih cepat.

Hasil penelitian yang dipimpin oleh profesor Ichiro Tsuji dari Tohoku University itu menjadi lonceng peringatan bagi masyarakat yang ingin menjadi kurus, atau biasa di Jepang dijuluki "metabo", yaitu orang-orang yang memiliki syndrome metabolisme.

Tim riset pimpinan profesor Tsuji itu meneliti 50.000 penduduk di Propinsi Miyagi, dengan usia rata-rata respondennya 40 tahun ke atas. Para peneliti menanyakan kondisi kesehatan para responden dan mengelompokkannya dalam klasifikasi `body mass index" (BMI) guna mengetahui seberapa gemuk seseorang itu.

Hasil studi memperlihatkan pria usia 40 tahun dengan berat badan normal (reguler) 53,5kg - 72kg, ternyata memiliki tambahan harapan hidup 39,9 tahun lebih lama. Sedangkan kelompok pria yang memiliki kelebihan berat badan (overweight) memiliki harapan hidup 41,6 tahun lebih lama.

Kaum perempuan reguler miliki harapan hidup 47,9 tahun lebih lama, sementara kelompok perempuan yang overweight memiliki usia harapan hidup 48,5 tahun lebih lama. Untuk pria dan perempuan yang tergolong kelompok obesitas ( di atas 86,7kg) memiliki usia harapan hidup 39,4 tahun lebih lama (untuk pria) dan 46 tahun lebih lama bagi kaum perempuannya.

Sementara itu, bagi kaum pria kurus memiliki usia harapan hidup 34,5 tahun lebih lama, dan kaum perempuan kurus memiliki usia harapan hidupnya 41,7 tahun lebih lama. Perkiraan mengapa kelompok masyarakat yang kurus berpeluang meninggal lebih dulu dikarenakan mereka merokok dan adanya teori yang menyatakan orang kurus lebih mudah terjangkit penyakit.

Namun demikian hubungan antara kondisis fisik dan usia harapan hidup masih belum jelas dimengerti hingga saat ini. Mengenai hal itu, Shinichi Kuriyama, profesor di Tohoko University lantas buru-buru mengingatkan bahwa orang-orang yang ingin panjang umur hendaknya tidak "latah" untuk menambah berat badannya.
