Improving Your Garden by Adding a Fountain

A great way to spice up your garden is to add a water feature. These can be both soothing and aesthetically appealing. I’ve found that there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting on a bench next to my garden and listening to my fountain while I read a good book or do some studying. Putting in a water feature is fairly easy and relatively inexpensive, and will add immensely to the pleasantness of your garden. Also, the maintenance level is minimal.

Usually, people install fountains for the benefit of the natural ambience it provides. For some reason, being around a gorgeous scene of water gives you a positive energy. This is also good if you practice Tai Chi or some form of yoga or meditation. The constant drone of the water is exactly what most people need to concentrate on what they are doing. Even if you’re not into that kind of stuff, just being in a garden with a fountain has a sort of meditative quality to it, even if you’re not trying to do so. I recommend it to anyone.

When you first decide to put in a fountain, you need to put great care into picking out one that will go well with the rest of your garden. If you have any other decorations, you want to consider if it goes well with your motif. Does the fountain you’re considering stand out in your garden like a sore thumb, or does it look like it was meant to be there? If you’re like me, you can’t naturally tell whether the fountain will be a good addition to your garden just by looking at it. So my solution was to bring my sister (a natural at fashion design and that kind of stuff) along with a picture of my garden to the store. I was able to get her expert opinion, as well as see for myself what it would look like. By doing this I was able to pick a beautiful rock fountain that goes marvelously with the rest of my garden.

However, I still had a slight problem with supplying my fountain with power. You see, my garden isn’t very close to my house. I thought it would look pretty tacky to run an extension cord across my yard, so I had to come up with another solution. I discussed my situation with a Home Depot employee, and he quickly found me the exact solution I needed: an extension cord meant for being buried! All it took was a few hours of digging a small trench across my yard, and I had power to my fountain without an unsightly cord running across my yard. After I got over this little hitch, my fountain plan went beautifully. So if you’re looking for a way to make your garden a more classy and beautiful place to be, I hope you consider installing a fountain. The whole process is surprisingly inexpensive, and I think that you will be very happy with the results. Having a fountain in your garden is not only soothing, but it also adds a lot of character to an otherwise bland garden. Remember, gardens are not just for giving us vegetables! A garden is a place to go when you want to retreat from the outside world and dwell in your own thoughts with no disturbance.

Using Rain Barrels to Survive Droughts

If you’re a gardener that has an unlimited supply of water, consider yourself lucky. There are many of us who live in drought zones where the garden and lawn watering rules are very constrictive to the healthy growth of gardens and plants. Many people just give up when they find out how few gallons of water they are permitted to use, but some of us have just found ways to cope with less water. There are many ways to optimize ones garden to conserve water while still keeping it lush.

Some of the ways include drip irrigation (the use of a pipe or hose with small holes to gradually seep into the roots of the plant), the placement of plants in groups of equal watering needs (to prevent wasting water on plants that don’t need it), and using compost or mulch to insulate the water and prevent drainage.

But one of the best ways to keep your garden alive during a drought is to take preventative measures. Occasionally a drought will be predicted far in advanced, or those already experiencing a drought will be given a few weeks of heavy rain. When this occurs, you should take the opportunity to set up several rain barrels. Many people think this would be a time consuming, silly thing to do. But it can save you many gallons of water, and hardly requires any work.

Finding the barrels will probably be the hardest part. You can use your own garbage cans, or head to your home improvement store to get a few 55 gallon plastic drums. These can be expensive and difficult to transport, so keep that in mind before you go to the store. You will probably want to cover the top of the barrel with a screen of some sort to filter out any unwanted leaves or debris that might fall off the roof of your house.

Once you have your barrels ready, you’re faced with the decision of where to place them. Usually during rainfall, there is one corner or segment of the house that rain tends to pour off of. If you are taking the simple approach to barrel placement, just place the barrel under all the places
where you see large amounts of drips. However, while this might be the easiest way to place them, you won’t see very high volumes of rain in the barrels.

If you want to take a more complicated approach to placing the barrels, you should consider tweaking your gutter system a bit. If you remove each individual segment and place it at a very slight slant so that all the water is diverted to the nearest corner of the house, you can place a rain barrel at each corner. So essentially your entire house acts as a catcher for the rain, instead of just a few feet worth of shingles. This is how to maximize the amount of water your rain barrel will catch.

After a heavy rainfall, each individual barrel probably won’t see very much rain. If it looks like it won’t be raining more any time soon, it’s a good idea to empty each barrel into one main central barrel. Seal it and save it out of the way, for whenever you may need it. Then the next time
it starts to rain, you’ll be able to quickly put all your catching barrels into place without having to lug around all the water you’ve accumulated so far.

The use of water barrels might sound like an antiquated idea. However, when you’re in the midst of a drought and you’re able to spare that extra couple of gallons for your garden in addition the city allotment, you’ll be grateful for every bit of time and money you spent on collecting all
that rain. All it takes is a few trips out in the backyard every time it starts to sprinkle, and you’ll be a very happy gardener when water isn’t abundant.

Konsep dan Implementasi CRM PAPER 2


Setelah era digital yang selalu menggunakan “e-“ didepan semua kata seperti e-commerce, e-book, e-sales, e-mail dan seterusnya, Customer Relationship Management atau CRM merupakan akronim atau singkatan yang paling populer dikalangan orang - orang sales dan marketing. Telaah per katanya adalah sebagai berikut; Pelanggan atau customer, kata pertama, di kamus bahasa Inggris artinya adalah seseorang yang berulang kali atau teratur melakukan pembelian kepada seorang pedagang. Jadi pelanggan adalah orangnya (dalam definisi ini tidak disinggung tentang kepuasan, mahal – murahnya pembelian, dan lain lain). Hubungan atau relationship kata kedua adalah bentuk komunikasi dua arah antara pembeli dan penjual. Manajemen, kata terakhir, artinya pengelolaan (secara luas tanpa perlu menjabarkan detail bagaimana mengelola sesuatu). Jadi definisi diatas kalau digabungkan kirakira menjadi pengelolaan hubungan dua arah antara suatu perusahaan dengan orang yang menjadi pelanggan di perusahaan tersebut. CRM dalam perkembangannya juga bisa didefinisikan sebagai berikut :

- CRM adalah sebuah istilah industri TI untuk metodologi, strategi, perangkat lunak (software) dan atau aplikasi berbasis web lainnya yang mampu membantu sebuah perusahaan (enterprise, kalau besar ukurannya) untuk mengelola hubungannya dengan para pelanggan.

- CRM adalah usaha sebuah perusahaan untuk berkonsentrasi menjaga pelanggan (supaya tidak lari ke pesaing) dengan mengumpulkan segala bentuk interaksi pelanggan baik itu lewat telepon, email, masukan di situs atau hasil pembicaraan dengan staf sales dan marketing.

Bukan hal yang mudah untuk mendefinisikan apa itu CRM. Ini dikarenakan luasnya cakupan CRM terhadap aktivitas sales dan marketing yang pada akhirnya menjadi bagian dari manajemen pengetahuan (knowledge management) dari perusahaan itu sendiri. Apa hubungannya dengan TI atau teknologi komputer pada umumnya? Jelas, TI merupakan bagian terpenting (tapi bukan yang pertama) dari CRM karena tanpa kemampuan teknologi komputer yang handal untuk mengolah besarnya informasi yang berhasil dikumpulkan, CRM akan lumpuh dan tidak ada artinya.

Kata Kunci : customer, management, software, sales, marketing, relationship, knowledge sharing

Oleh karena itu, keputusan yang tepat dari pihak yang memiliki otoritas sangat berpengaruh dalam peningkatan ataupun penurunan produktivitas perusahaan.
