The Next Generation

Neha Gupta
Leading off our overview of young entrepreneurs is Neha Gupta, a 13-year-old from Pennsylvania who started Empower Orphans when she was just 9 years old. Since then, the nonprofit has raised $30,000 for orphans in India thanks to Gupta's fundraising activities: selling handmade greeting cards and wine charms. With a goal of raising $20,000 in 2010, Gupta is well on her way to a successful career in philanthropy.

Anshul Samar

Silicon Valley has long been a seat of innovation, so it is only natural that one of the most successful child entrepreneurs hails from California's tech corridor. Anshul Samar, now 14, started a gaming company in 2008 to market a role-playing card game that teaches chemistry. After clearing $1 million in revenue in his first year, Samar won a $25,000 grant and is now working to raise $100,000 in venture capital for his company, Elementeo.

Remington Anne Smith
When 9-year-old Remington "Remmi" Anne Smith recognized the growing problem of childhood obesity, she decided to do something about it. Having always enjoyed cooking with her mother, she decided to create Cook Time With Remmi, a cooking show for children to teach them how to prepare simple and healthy meals. The show, which Remmi hosts alongside her mother, is being broadcast on local television, and discussions are underway to expand the program nationally.
Aitan Grossman
At 13 years old, Aitan Grossman takes climate change and the future of the planet very seriously. As evidence of this commitment, he founded the environmental nonprofit KidEarth to raise awareness of climate change. Key to his efforts is the song "100 Generations" that Grossman wrote and has since been used to promote environmental awareness. It has been distributed by school districts around the country and even the United Nations. Grossman donates all proceeds from sales of the song on and iTunes to environmental charities.
Leanna Archer
Leanna Archer, 13, decided to form her own beauty products company when she was 8 after receiving compliments on her hair, which she treated with a unique pomade that was passed down through her family. Today, Leanna's Inc. pulls in more than $180,000 a year selling a range of hair care and beauty products online and in salons around the country.

Anastasia Snyder
For 10-year-old Anastasia Snyder, knitting is more than a hobby. After a year perfecting her technique, the California native started a company, Lovin' It Loops, to sell her purses, cellphone socks and change purses. Priced at $10, $6 and $4 respectively, Snyder's products are featured in a local store and sold online.

Samantha Senechal
The idea for 10-year-old Samantha Senechal's business, Sammy's Dog Treats, came from where so many great ideas do: the library. After checking out a book on how to make biscuits for her Boston Terrier, Senechal started selling the treats to friends and family, and the operation now brings in more than $1,000 a month. With an almost $90,000 investment from her parents, Sammy's Dog Treats is poised to ramp up production significantly.
Making it Work

Kelly Reinhart
Our second group of entrepreneurs features young people a bit farther along the path to making a living out of entrepreneurship; they have capitalized on the ventures from their pre-teen years, and in some cases built business empires on them.
By age 10, Kelly Reinhart had invented her first product, sold her first company and started a nonprofit to teach entrepreneurship. Her design for the T-Pack, a variation on the fanny pack that is worn on the thigh, went on to sell for $1 million and her success inspired her to start the Kelly Reinhart Education Initiative to teach entrepreneurship to other children. Now 18, Reinhart writes children's books.
Ben Casnocha
Building on a technology class project that he developed at age 12, Ben Casnocha founded Comcate Inc., a software company that provides solutions to public agencies looking to improve customer service and increase staff efficiency. Now 19, Casnocha maintains a busy schedule lecturing on entrepreneurship at schools and organizations worldwide while he runs the company that now has annual revenues of $750,000.
Juliette Brindak
Making money was far from Juliette Brindak's mind when, at age 10, she started a Web site for tweenage girls aimed at building self-esteem and positivity. The site, Miss O and Friends, has risen to become one of the most popular Web sites for girls aged 8-14, with millions of unique visitors every month. Now 20, Brindak is a successful author and continues to run the site, valued at more than $15 million.
Farrah Gray
It's hard to imagine being a millionaire at age 14, but that is exactly what Farrah Gray achieved after starting his own business selling homemade body lotion and bookends at age 6. The following years saw Gray embark on numerous ventures, both for profit and for charity, with success building on success. Now 24, Gray has his own real-estate brokerage, his own online magazine and publishing company and an impressive list of books he has authored on entrepreneurship and empowerment.
Abbey Fleck
An innovator in the purest sense, Abbey Fleck saw the need for a way to cook bacon in a more healthy way and at age 8 designed a product to do just that. The Makin' Bacon microwave bacon cooker was a smash hit, with an initial deal to sell in Wal-Mart stores across the country. Now in her 20s, Fleck still co-owns the company that brings in more than $1 million in revenue every year.
Suhas Gopinath
After starting a local discussion Web site in his native India, Suhas Gopinath came to the U.S. to start a company at age 14, because Indian law prevents minors from starting companies. Now 21,Globals Inc. employs 400 people in 11 offices around the world and produces Web sites and software for a variety of clients under Gopinath's leadership. Already a workaholic, Gopinath shows no signs of letting up in his quest to run a successful business.

Cara mudah dan murah ke Jogja dari Surabaya

Pengen liburan tapi harga tiket pesawat dan Kereta Api mahal? Nih, gw ada cara murah berangkat dari Surabaya ke Jogja bagi lo yang duitnya cekak dan belum pernah ke Jogja sama sekali.

22 Desember 2009 gw jalan kaki dari kos menuju jalan besar Ahmad Yani untuk naik bus ke terminal Bungurasih, Surabaya. Sampe di A.Yani, pilih bus apa aja pasti nyampenye kesono. Waktu itu kebetulan gw naik bus yang di depannya ada tulisan BUNGUR. Dengan uang 3000 (seharusnya 2500 rupiah saja, tapi waktu itu kagak ada kembaliannya), gw naik bus itu ke Bungurasih. Kalo kagak tau bungur itu dimana, tanya aja ma keneknya, dia pasti bilang kok kalo udah nyampe.

Ini perjalanan gw yang pertama ke Jogja sendirian dari Surabaya. Pertama kali pula naik bus ke luar kota sendirian di tanah Jawa ini. Untunglah si bapak kenek baik,

“Misi permisi pak, mau numpang mandi. Eh, salah, numpang tanya. Kalau mau ke Jogja saya harus kemana?” tanya gw.

“Loh, kalo mau ke Jogja ya ke Jogja. Kok masih tanya lagi?” Ih, si bapak ni past…


This is my opinion, but i think we have the same in our mind. Here they are:

1. Donny Alamsyah

Aktor ini mulai berkibar sejak perannya dalam Trilogi Merah Putih sebagai Tomas membius penonton. Karakter yang kuat dari orang Menado Kristiani yang diperankannya oke punya. Dan kabarnya dia observasi ke perkumpulan-perkumpulan orang Menado dan mempraktekkan bahasa Menado demi mendalami perannya ini.
Dari gaya berpakaiannya, dia cowok yang simpel menurut gw. Cuma kaos sama jeans atau celana pendek aja udah bikin dia bersinar. Orang ganteng emang ga perlu banyak berdandan. Dan itu bikin dia semakin keren. Simple is Cool right?

2. Arie Wibowo
Akting memukaunya telah membius banyak orang sejak tahun 90an. Kala itu ia berperan sebagai Jacky dalam Deru dan Debu. Gw salah satu penggemar sinetron itu waktu masih kecil. Gayanya yang cowok abis dan caranya memilih pasangan hidup bikin orang berdecak kagum. Cowok yang bener-bener idaman semua wanita. Fans arie wibowo sendiri tidak hanya dari kalangan awam…

The Duchess

Adooooooh ni film bener-bener bikin makan hati. Bukan karena jelek! Justru karena bagus sekali. Ceritanya bener-bener mempermainkan perasaan saya sebagai seorang perempuan. Thanks God saya hidup di masa kini, thanks buat R.A Kartini yang udah bikin perempuan Indonesia lepas dari belenggu-belenggu ga penting.
Film ini, based on true story. Menceritakan kisah hidup Georgina, The Duchess from Devonshire. Jujur, saya kagum dengan ketabahan hatinya. Kalau saya jadi dia, wah mungkin saya sudah bunuh diri atau membunuh orang lain yang pastinya orang itu adalah suaminya, The Duke of Devonshire. Jahat banget tuh orang, asli! Laki-laki kayak begitu mending buang di Got saja.
Georgina, adalah seorang gadis muda yang enerjik. Orangnya supel banget. Cinta pertamanya si Charles Greg. Mereka saling mencintai tapi yang cewe masih belum nyadar betul akan perasaannya. Pas si Charles Greg mo nyaci (nyatain cinta), Georgina dipanggil mamanya. Ternyata dia dilamar The Duke of Devonshire. Cewek muda ini senan…
