Dua Mahasiswi UI Raih Best Diplomacy Award di Harvard World MUN 2011

Dua Mahasiswi dari Universitas Indonesia mengukir sejarah baru setelah berhasil meraih penghargaan "Best Diplomacy Award" dalam Harvard World Model United Nations (World MUN) 2011 di Singapore pada 14-18 Maret 2011 lalu. Acara ini diikuti  2.255 delegasi dari 65 negara dan 266 universitas dari seluruh dunia.
  
Kedua mahasiswi jurusan Hubungan Internasional tersebut yaitu, Dyah Ayunico Ramadhani dan Indah Gilang. Penghargaan tersebut diberikan kepada delegasi World MUN yang selama konferensi merepresentasikan semangat diplomasi dan Perserikatan Bangsa-Bangsa (PBB).

Dyah Ayunico Ramadhani, memiliki minat yang sangat besar terhadap diplomasi dan
kompleksitas yang ada dalam PBB. Mewakili Kesultanan Oman dalam the Organizations of the Islamic Conference (Organisasi Konferensi Islam) [OIC], Dyah menghadapi tantangan untuk menjawab permasalah terkini yakni isu sensor internet di negara-negara Islam dan dampaknya terhadap perkembangan dunia Islam.

"Saya sangat kagum pada bagaimana delegasi dari berbagai wilayah dunia dan latar belakang agama yang berbeda seluruhnya bersatu untuk mewujudkan semangat Islam dalam menanggapi topik tersebut dalam OIC," jelasnya dalam rilis yang diterima redaksi, Jumat (25/3/2011).

Sementara itu Indah Gilang yang mewakili negara Oman dalam World Trade Organization (WTO/ Organisasi Perdagangan Dunia) mengatakan, tidaklah mudah untuk memenangkan penghargaan ini karena dirinya harus berdiplomasi dan bersaing dengan lebih dari 130 mahasiswa di dunia dalam membahas isu hambatan perdagangan komoditas pertanian.

"Saya berlaku sebagai diplomat negara Oman. Sebagai negara kecil di Timur Tengah yang mayoritas penduduknya masih bekerja di bidang pertanian dan memiliki cukup cadangan minyak dunia, Oman harus berani menentang dominasi negara besar yang menginginkan proteksionisme perdagangan," kata Indah.

Kedua gadis tersebut telah bersinar di antara perguruan tinggi kelas dunia seperti Yale University,US Military Academy di West Point, Universidad Simon Bolivar, Heidelberg University, yang juga terpilih untuk menerima penghargaan terkemuka tersebut di Harvard World MUN 2011.

Asia-Pacific Japan earthquake unleashes tsunami

8.9 quake strikes Japan, triggers tsunami


Japanese television is showing horrific pictures of a wall of water swallowing everything in its path following a  massive 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck off the northeast coast of Japan.
The quake has triggered a tsunami already that's washing away cars and houses inland in the north-east of the country.
A 10-metre tsunami warning has been extended for the coast in the region.
The tsunami warning was issued to most of the Pacific coast of the main island of Honshu, broadcaster NHK reported. People are being told to get to higher ground.
The quake was initially listed as 7.9 magnitude, then upgraded to 8.8, then 8.9 by US Geological Survey. A series of aftershocks followed including one of around 7 magnitude.
The epicentre of the quake is believed to be in the north of Japan, in the Honshu area.
The quake caused buildings to shake in the capital Tokyo, triggering at least one building fire, NHK television and witnesses reported.
The BBC is reporting it as a "mega-quake" and says there are many people injured.
Narita airport, Tokyo's main airport, has been closed. A number of people are believed to have been injured during a graduation ceremony in Tokyo when a roof collapsed.
The public broadcaster showed black smoke billowing from a building in Odaiba, a Tokyo suburb, and bullet trains to the north of the country have been halted.
NHK said a tsunami of 50 cm had already hit Japan's northern coast but the quake was big enough to cause a massive tsunami according to one expert talking to the BBC.
Television showed cars bobbing in water alongside fishing boats.

"The building shook for what seemed a long time and many people in the newsroom grabbed their helmets and some got under their desks," Reuters correspondent Linda Sieg said.
"It was probably the worst I have felt since I came to Japan more than 20 years ago."
The US Geological Survey verified a magnitude of 8.8 at depth of 24.3kms and located the quake 130.3kms east of Sendai, Honshu. The stock market extended its losses after the quake.
Japan's northeast Pacific coast, called Sanriku, has suffered from quakes and tsunamis in the past and a 7.2 quake struck on Wednesday. In 1933, a magnitude 8.1 quake in the area killed more than 3,000 people. Last year fishing facilities were damaged after by a tsunami caused by a strong tremor in Chile.
There are believed to be 3500 New Zealanders in Japan, and 1600 in Tokyo.
Civil Defence in New Zealand says a tsunami is possible in New Zealand, but it is still monitoring the situation and it would be 11 hours away.
