Japanese Solar Car Lead Race

With the leading vehicles just passing the halfway point in 1,864 miles of the country's harshest terrain from Darwin in the north to southern Adelaide The 10th Global Green Challenge, the Tokai University (Japan) Challenger leads the pack followed closely by the University of Michigan (U.S.) Infinium and former world champion, the Delft Technical University(Netherlands) Nuna V. Tokai Challenger ended the first day 44 miles ahead of its closest rival. The surface of the Tokai Challenger is covered in 2,176 solar cells, which convert sunbeams to energy at the high efficiency rate of about 30 percent. This boosted the car to speeds of about 66 miles per hour yesterday. The World Solar Challenge is a biennial event in which teams, mostly university or corporation sponsored, enter the most efficient solar-powered vehicles in the world and race from coast to coast across the Australian outback. The race has been held since 1987 and has grown to such an extent that it has evolved into an arm of the broader Global Green Challenge, which runs concurrently and includes various classes of hybrid, electric, solar, low emission, and alternative energy vehicles. The solar car race event for this year will be held from October 24 to 31, 2009. The cars race for nine hours a day, then camp each night by the side of the road.

Introduce Posting

Still busy with office job and just have a little time to write. So I better write this posting than nothing to upload. So, this is only introduce posting. ITB is one of the most famous and biggest university in Indonesia. First Republic of Indonesia persident, Soekarno, was graduated from this institute. Sometimes I wondering why Institut Technology not become university. Many institut changed to university with opened social science majors like economy, languange, administation and etc. ITB not do that. ITB consitent become institute faced globalization of education. The best three of public university in Indonesia is ITB, Universitas Indonesia in Depok, and Univeritas Gajahmada in Yogyarkata. But you can find School Business of Management at ITB campus in Bandung have four programs: Bachelor’s Degree in Management (Undergraduate Program), Master’s Degree in Business Management (MBA Program), Master’s Degree in Science Management (MSM Program), and Doctor’s degree Management (Doctoral Program). Near ITB you can also find Bandung Zoo. I was study magister at ITB for two years but never been there because no one of my friends refused my invitation.

Why I choose this name for my link. I had nostalgia with this name. I was studied my magister program in this institut. Yeah ITB is Institut Teknologi Bandung (Bandung Institut of Technology) in West Java. But some already take first this link name. If you googling can find this used for blog Inside the box (itb). So I used i-t-b. But itb itself means information-technology-business. Looking good and simple. This is the fisrt time I upload my posting, another posting soon will upload. Have I nice day.
