Civilization and Happiness

What is the civilization? And what is the happiness? What is the correlation? Although not the only, people say that the aim of building civilization is to obtain happiness.

Isolated tribal hinterland, a very humble and modest community, often called "low civilized". Conversely the more developed rural community or a large urban population, developed countries and the like often called "high civilized". Is it true?

Sometimes a question raised in my minds, what people actually want bothered to become "highly civilized" or to become "modern"? Whether for achieving the happiness?

Perhaps one reason that it makes sense is that their life will becomes easier. Or so they could be happier with the social order that are considered "advanced" and "better". Is it true?

What is Octane Number?

Octane number of gasoline indicates the content of carbon chain of C8 (octane) contained therein, similar to the Cetane number for diesel fuel as a measure of fuel quality despite having a different understanding. In the case of combustion, octane rating will determine the fuel ability to not ignite spontaneously in the combustion chamber. Spontaneous ignition means with the compression process without any sparks from spark plugs air and fuel mixture burn by itself. The occurrence of spontaneous combustion is characterized by the occurrence of knocking in the engine and can cause engine damage. Fuel does not burn completely but explode.

The octane number is determined by comparing the characteristics of a gasoline to isooctane (2,2,4-trimethylpentane) and heptane. Isooctane is assigned an octane number of 100. It is a highly branched compound that burns smoothly, with little knock. On the other hand, heptane, chain a straight, unbranched molecule is given an octane rating of zero because of its bad knocking properties.

Pertamina fuel quality is Questionable

Pertamina, the State Owned Oil Company denies that their gasoline products has low fuel quality.  Pertamina President Director, Karen Agustiawan claimed that their fuel products are in accordance with the standards. "Who said we were under a standard gasoline, if it turns out they were wrong I would claim”, she said. 

Pertamina Corporate Secretary Toharso said its lowest grade car fuel Premium is produced based on the standards set by the Oil and Gas Directorate General of the Energy and Mineral Resources Department, and that "There are no reports on fuel pump damage due to the quality of Pertamina's Premium came from any party”. The fuel pump damage caused by vehicle users does not use the fuel according to the specifications of his car, which is can be the fuel octane rating.

Why did the Earth getting hotter?

When we noticed, from time to time the earth's temperature was getting hotter and hotter. Why did this happen? That is what we called global warming.  Global warming is the increase in temperature of the earth because of the influence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere such as water vapor, carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane. In the normal amount, these gases are useful to maintain the temperature of the earth keep warm. In excessive amounts, these gases will cause the greenhouse effect.

The greenhouse effect can be explained as follows: The sun's rays penetrate the earth's atmosphere, in which greenhouse gases are also located, toward the surface of the earth. Most of the solar energy is absorbed by the earth and causing the Earth's surface temperature increases. Some is reflected back into the atmosphere in the form of infrared rays.
