1. Creative people have a great deal of physical energy, but they’re also often quiet and at rest.

when they’re calm and rested they think about everything. in silence, they can freely think about everything. rest the brain link many options of possibilities.

2. Creative people tend to be smart yet naive at the same time.

they always want to know about many things that is why they tend to be smart

3. Creative people combine playfulness and discipline, or responsibility and irresponsibility.

to make it more attractive they put some playful technique in their works so it does not have to be so stiffed and boring but of course it should also be  responsible  when it comes up to surroundings

4. Creative people alternate between imagination and fantasy, and a rooted sense of reality.

the idea that can be alternated into reality is just a big nonsense of dream.

5. Creative people trend to be both extroverted and introverted.

they are introverted when they work on their mind dealing with their own idea, knowing that they are the only one who understand how to process the idea. when the right time to tell others about the idea, they become extroverted.

6. Creative people are humble and proud at the same time.

because their surroundings believe that they can creatively cope problems and then they become proud of themselves when they can help others using their own ideas.

7. Creative people, to an extent, escape rigid gender role stereotyping.

because they try to be objective looking through the every aspect

8. Creative people are both rebellious and conservative.

they rebelliously walk  contradictory to the rules, it means that they tend to think out-side the box. willing to do something different than others

9. Most creative people are very passionate about their work, yet they can be extremely objective about it as well.

they surely are because they really desire what they do. they know what the best and what the worst so sometime they position themselves into different roles so they can appraise what they do objectively

10. Creative people’s openness and sensitivity often exposes them to suffering and pain, yet also to a great deal of enjoyment.

because all the pain that resulted to the failure of launching the creative idea is set as a good process learning to identify the real meaning of creativity

The Lakers are riding high, feeding off a boisterous crowd that will now be in a Kobe-induced frenzy. I imagine the hottest NBA ticket is in Los Angeles when the Lakers play at home, Tickets are selling like hotcakes these days, as a lot of people are going to want to see what Kobe-s doing each night. After scoring 81 points in one game, Kobe Bryant-s status as a player is now in the company of Wilt Chamberlain, arguably, the greatest NBA player to ever play the game. Bryant-s feat is second only to Chamberlain, who scored 100 points in a game for the Philadelphia Warriors in 1962 against the New York Knicks. So, it begs the question; Is Kobe Bryant one of the greatest? Well, at least he had his name placed next to Chamberlains in the record books.

Kobe Bryant says he feels a little embarrassed by his 81-point effort against the Toronto Raptors, and that he is not trying to eclipse Wilt Chamberlain-s long-standing record of 100 points in a game, according to a Reuters report. Bryant continues to be hounded by questions after his scoring outburst. “I-m a little embarrassed actually,” Bryant said after a Lakers- practice. “I think it-s exciting for the game and the organization because of all the buzz, but personally it-s a little embarrassing.” Kobe Bryant may have some personal issues about which he should be embarrassed, but scoring 81 in a single game is not one of them.

He is trying to lead the Lakers to a successful season, and ultimately, a good showing in the NBA playoffs. Bryant leads the NBA in scoring, averaging 35.7 points per game. In January, with his 81 point game, he averaged 43.4 points per game. He joined Chamberlain again in the record books as the only other player to average over 40 points per game in a single month. He says winning is the most important thing for the Lakers.

“The concept is not about going out there and putting on a show or going out there and scoring points,” he said. “It-s to win games. I-d much rather go out and score 25 points and get 10 assists and see everybody in a rhythm, everybody in a groove.” About Chamberlain-s mark Bryant said, “I don-t even think about it. That-s unthinkable. It was done once by Wilt, and I-m not Wilt.”

One of the most controversial topics for basketball fans is whether Wilt Chamberlain is the best player ever. His incredible statistics are unparalleled, but the great argument against him is that he “only” won two championships. So, there are several players who arguably rival Chamberlain for the title of greatest basketball player of all time, including Bill Russell, his lifelong on-court nemesis, who won a mind-numbing 11 titles and regularly beat up on Chamberlain-s teams in the playoffs. There is also Michael Jordan, who earned six titles and won five NBA regular season and six Championship Finals MVP titles; Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who also won six titles and is the NBA-s all-time leading scorer and Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who won five titles and was more of an all-around player than Chamberlain.

Statistically, Johnson was arguably the greatest offensive producer ever. Assuming every assist creates 2 points, he produced 54.85 points per 48 minutes, compared to Michael Jordan’s 50.98 or Wilt Chamberlain’s 40.82. Johnson also scored 17,707 points over the length of his career of 906 games, averaging 19.5 points per game. However, there are several arguments that support the idea that Wilt Chamberlain is the greatest player. In his prime, Wilt was so dominant that the NBA actually changed the rules to stop him, including outlawing the inbounds pass over the backboard and prohibiting dunking from the foul line during free-throw attempts.

The NBA hasn’t changed any rules due to Kobe Bryant’s play. However, his career straight out of high school has taken many twists and turns with numerous well-documented off-court troubles, but his game has always shown steady improvement despite various distractions. The Los Angeles Lakers became perennial championship contenders under Bryant and former teammate Shaquille O-Neal, who teamed up to form one of the deadliest center-guard duos in NBA history. Their success gave the Lakers three consecutive NBA championships in 2000, 2001, and 2002. The 2003 season saw the end of the Lakers- run as a mini-dynasty, but also became the definitive season for Kobe Bryant. An NBA superstar at only 24 years of age, Bryant averaged over 30 points per game and embarked on a historic scoring run, posting 40 or more points per game for nine consecutive contests.

To be fair, offense is only part of the game of basketball. So trying to crown a “greatest ever” in the NBA is nearly an impossible task. To be even more fair, the game has changed radically since 1962 and so has the athleticism of the players. The NBA is inundated with players that perform specific roles for their team. These “specialists” do what they do very well, such as three-point-shooting, defense, distributing the ball, inside game, etc. Wilt was maybe not the best, but for sure, he was the most dominant player the game ever produced. The question is, would he be as dominant in today-s game with today-s players? Kobe Bryant is an amazing athlete, an all-around player. It is still early in his NBA career, and although has all the tools to eclipse the greatest players in history, he hasn-t done so yet. Kobe Bryant…WE WILL BE WATCHING.

creative person for me

music..music..music

Who don’t love music? yeah, music is just like a soundtrack in our live. when we sad,cry,laugh,smile, music always accompany us. Just like you, i like music, i do.

Ok, there are many genius in music, the one who can make music more beautiful. And i think kurt cobain is one of them. The ex front man in nirvana is a truly genius in making music and making a cool performance.

Kurt Donald Cobain was the leader of Nirvana, the multi-platinum grunge band that redefined the sound of the nineties.

Cobain was born on the 20th of February 1967 in Hoquaim, a small town 140 kilometres south-west of Seattle. His mother was a cocktail waitress and his father was an auto mechanic. Cobain soon moved to nearby Aberdeen, a depressed and dying logging town.

Cobain was for most his childhood a sickly bronchitic child. Matters were made worse when Cobain’s parent’s divorced when he was seven and by his own account Cobain said he never felt loved or secure again. He became increasingly difficult, anti-social and withdrawn after his parent’s divorce. Cobain also said that his parent’s traumatic split fueled a lot of the anguish in Nirvana’s music.

When Cobain was eleven he heard and was captivated by the Britain’s Sex Pistols and after their self-destruction Cobain and friend Krist Novoselic continued to listen to the wave of British bands including Joy Division the nihilistic post-punk band that some say Nirvana are directly descended from in form of mood, melody and lyrical quality.  Nirvana was an uneasy alliance between Cobain, bassist Krist Novoselic and eventually drummer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Grohl.

Smells Like Teen Spirit became Nirvana’s most highly acclaimed and instantly recognizable song. Not many people can decipher it’s exact lyrics but Cobain used a seductive hookline to hook the listener.

Like other musician legend, when Cobain becoming very popular he can’t enjoy his life anymore. A few times he talked about death and suicide.

On March the 4th Cobain was rushed to hospital in a coma after an unsuccessful suicide bid in which he washed down about fifty prescription painkillers with champagne. The suicide bid was officially called an accident and was not even made known to close friends and associates. Several days later he returned to Seattle. Cobain’s wife, friends and managers convinced Cobain, who was still in deep distress to enter a detox program in L.A. According to a missing person’s report filed by his mother Cobain fled after only a few days of the program.

Cobain was cited in the Seattle area with a shotgun. Days later on the 5th of April he barricaded himself into the granny flat behind his mansion, put a shotgun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. On Thursday April the 7th ~ two days after a medical examiner says Cobain shot himself and the day before his body was found police say Courtney Love herself was taken to hospital in L.A. for a drug overdose. Released on bail, Love checked herself into a rehab center but left soon after a friend called her the next day with news of Cobain’s death.

Cobain’s body was found when an electrician visiting the house to install a security system went round the back of the house when no one answered the front door and peered through windows. He thought he saw a mannequin sprawled on the floor until he noticed a splotch of blood by Cobain’s ear. When police broke down the door they found Cobain dead on the floor, a shotgun still pointed at his chin and on a nearby counter a suicide note written in red ink addressed to Love and the couples then 19 month old daughter Frances Bean.

The suicide note ended with the words “I love you, I love you.” Two days after Kurt Cobain’s body was found about 5,000 people gathered in Seattle for a candlelight vigil. the distraught crowd filled the air with profane chants, burnt their flannel shirts and fought with police. They also listened to a tape made by Cobain’s wife in which she read from his suicide note. Several distressed teenagers in the U.S. and Australia killed themselves. The mainstream media was lambasted for it’s lack of respect and understanding of youth culture.

Maybe Cobain’s body is not in our earth anymore, buth his ideology of music, his voice and the thought of him always be with us. And the way he live his life may be our inspiration.

Hmmm… talking about creative company, i think creative company should always think outside the box and always improve them self, so market will always accept them.

after i thinking a while, i think ben and jerry’s is the most creative company for me.

Ben and Jerry's ice cream... yummmyyyy

Ben and Jerry

Ok, Ben and Jerry’s is a company that made a delicious ice cream and they packaging is very attractive.

let me introduce you about Ben and Jerry’s history.

Back in ’66, in a school gym class, Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield found they hated running but loved food. Years later in ’78, Ben had been fired from a series of McJobs while Jerry had failed for the second time to get into medical school. So, armed with a $5 correspondence course in ice cream making, they opened their first scoop shop in a dilapidated gas station in Burlington, Vermont.

They soon became popular in the local community for the finest all natural ice cream. Ben had no sense of taste so he relied on what he called ‘mouth feel’, so big chunks of chocolate, fruit and nut became their signature. While they disagreed at times over the chunk size, they did agree that they wanted to enjoy themselves – as Jerry put it ‘if it’s not fun, why do it?’.

In the early days the boys were pretty bad at book-keeping. After two months they closed the store and hung a sign that said ‘we’re closed to figure out whether we’re making any money’. And they weren’t. But they learned a lot and by 1979, began wholesaling pints of ice cream out of Ben’s VW campervan.

the another cool things about ben and jerry’s company, that they always run business with fun, the founder of the the company always said that we should do domething we like, because we can always improve if we run business that we like. im totally agree with that statement. With do the things you like, you will always interested with it, and will have some fun while running it.

GO Ben and Jerry’s and keep making us a delicious ice cream

This is Ben and Jerry

creativity is blablablablabla

creativity is blablablablabla

 

Creativity is…??

Eng ing eng

ok, everybody knows creativity, There are many interpretations of what creativity is and what it involves. Some people think it is related to being artistic and producing work creatively, and some people believe it is to do with imagination and ideas. First of all, let’s remember that although we use the word “creativity” all the time, it is not something you can put in the boot of your car or sell in a can – it is a nominalisation, and that means it was taken from a verb which describes an activity and frozen into this nebulous noun.

The verb at the bottom of the well is, “to create”.

In essence, this means “to make something”, and that’s our first stop on re-defining creativity.

we can assume that “Being creative is seeing the same thing as everybody else but thinking of something different”

There are many aspects to creativity, but one definition would include the ability to take existing objects and combine them in different ways for new purposes. For example, Gutenberg took the wine press and the die/punch and produced a printing press. Thus, a simple definition of creativity is the action of combining previously uncombined elements. From art, music and invention to household chores, this is part of the nature of being creative. Another way of looking at creativity is as playing with the way things are interrelated. Creativity is the ability to generate novel and useful ideas and solutions to everyday problems and challenges.

Creativity involves the translation of our unique gifts, talents and vision into an external reality that is new and useful. We must keep in mind that creativity takes place unavoidably inside our own personal, social, and cultural boundaries.

The more we define our creativity by identifying with specific sets of values, meanings, beliefs and symbols, the more our creativity will be focused and limited; the more we define our creativity by focusing on how values, meanings, beliefs and symbols are formed, the greater the chance that our creativity will become less restricted.

Long live CREATIVITY!!!!!!!

do you wear jeans? or do you have jeans?

I think everybody will say “YEEEESSSSS!!!”

Jeans share the same soul and attitude as music, and almost everybody using it.

I will gve u a little explanation about jeans history.

the blue jeans invented in 1873 by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss. These two visionary immigrants, turned denim,thread and a little metal into the most popular clothing product in the world. Waist overalls, was the traditional name for work pants, which is what these first jeans were called. and why jeans becoming popular??

In the 1930’s, Hollywood made lots of western movies. Cowboys – who often wore jeans in the movies-became very popular. Many Americans who lived in the eastern states went for vacations on ‘dude ranches’ and took pairs of denim ‘waist overalls’ back east with them when they went home.And yeah, after that, jeans becoming a lifestyle for most people.

Many people wondering why people spending more than $100 just for buying a pair of jeans. I think, a great pair of jeans can elevate an outfit from drab to fab, and a person from woe to wow. Then, u can use your jeans for a very very long time. furthermore, Denim has the ability to age beautifully – formed by its user into a second skin, naked and personal. So ,i think picking up a perfect jeans even though its expensive is acceptable, because jeans are more than just piece of clothing!

SSSOOO, WEAR YOUR JEANS NOW!!!
