Plastics / 9 December 2019

In this era of globalization, we can easily find plastic everywhere. Some people said that using plastic is more practice and efficient. But, do you know where plastic was formed and what’s the materials? Plastic is material consisting of any of a wide range of synthetic or semi-synthetic organic compounds that are malleable and so can be molded into solid objects. The material for plastic called polymer. We can find polymer from nature. The plastic first used was in 1907 by Leo Baekeland. The United Nations Joint Group of Experts on the Scientific Aspects of Marine Pollution (GESAMP), estimated that land-based sources account for up to 80 percent of the world’s marine pollution, 60 to 95 percent of the waste being plastics debris. Of the 8.3 billion metric tons that have been produced, 6.3 billion metric tons have become plastic waste. Of that, only nine percent have been recycled. The vast majority—79 percent—is accumulating in landfills or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter. Plastic waste has been pollution on the ocean and on the land. Plastic takes a long time to be decomposed. It takes up to 1000 years to be decomposed. It can decrease soil fertility, make air…

Chulalongkorn Centenary Park
Place / 9 December 2019

Chulalongkorn Centenary Park is the first critical piece of green infrastructure for the city of Bangkok, designed to mitigate detrimental ecological issues and add much-needed outdoor public space to the grey city. The Chulalongkorn Centenary Park is designed to face future uncertainties of climate change. Bangkok is a climate-vulnerable city with little green space, and this park, which contains the largest green roof in Thailand, is an invaluable addition to the ecological landscape. The park addresses major environmental issues facing Bangkok as a rapidly developed, hard paved city: water management and the urban heat island effect. The design and environmental effects of the park reach beyond its boundaries into the surrounding neighborhood: a pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly road extends beyond the park in both directions, linking major roadways directly to the park’s walkways, and water from neighboring areas is treated by the park’s filtration system. Located on a large university campus in central Bangkok, close to residential, entertainment and major retail facilities, The Centenary Park is a showcase for the ecological and social impacts of landscape architecture in dense urban areas.   The 30-rai (12 acre) park with 1.3 km. green avenue is designed with many ecological functions that sustainably collect…

Depression and Anxiety
Mental Health / 9 December 2019

Good morning, friends! How are you? Are you feeling good today? Before I start the talk today, first I want to ask you guys something. Have you ever think, why your friends are better than you? Why am I not as smart as she or he? As a college student, do you think you get lots of pressure from society, like your family and friends or something that makes you feel under pressure? From the pressures that we get, it can cause lots of problems, like anxiety, depression, insecurity, anorexia, and many more. Well, I’m not going to talk about all of these because it takes a long time of course. So today, I’m just going to talk about depression and anxiety, because they’re connected. What’s the difference between these two? Depression generates emotions such as hopelessness, despair, and anger. Meanwhile anxiety disorder, however, experiences fear, panic or anxiety in situations where most people would not feel anxious or threatened. In Indonesia, depression and anxiety awareness level is very low. People don’t really care about it, they just think “Oh you just overthink”, or “you need to get closer to God”, and sometimes people make fun of it. It’s someone’s life,…
