My profile during catching the Butterflies in West Sumatra 1975

My Son Anton with the collections at Solok city West Sumatra in 1977.


1.Between 1975-1979 during my job at Solok city,every sunday I with all my family visit my father and mother in law at Padang Panjang. After my two sons playing with Tok In -my mother in law housekeeping, I and my wife Lily take a sport at the beautiful Anai Valley because my father in law have a restaurant there and
I saw a Japaneseman catcher the butterflies there with mthern net and he told me that in that place there were some very rare butterflies, and I made the traditinal catcher from Bamboo and ring from copper wire with the net from gordijn
(look at the picture of Anei valley with my father in law profile and his restaurant)


2. After four years , I have catched some veryrare butterflies and I made the photos and conservated that butterflies but in 10 years all the collections were broken because not god weather and conservations,but the informations picture still keep until now and we will compare with the veryrare butterflies collections of Mr W.A. Fleming in his vintage Book Butterflies of West Malaysia and Singapore ,the same area with West Sumatra.This book I bought at Michaels Bookshp,22 rchad Road,Cold Strage Shopping Centre Singapore during visit that city in 1974, I THINK THIS SHOP DIDNOT EXIST ANYMORE.Please collectors comment..
After 1979, forbidden to catched the butterflies in that area because protect by law at the restricted area until now.
Very fresh and healthy air and wheater there made me very happy ,and take a delicious native Minangkabau Rice Chicken randang which I still remember until now,this time the restaurant have sold after my father and mther in law were pass away.
During the last bigger eartquaked in 2009 these area still in good situation not broken.

3. During my Job tour area in South Celebes between 1995-1996 ,one of my junior officer ,the native celebes, bring me to Butterflies conservations at Bantimurung Waterfalls, and he bought for me as a present some rare butterflies which still intact in my collections, we will compare with the picture in vintage Protected Butterflies In Indonesia Books 1990.
Many of very rare South celebes and Papua I have found at Bantimurung ,very difficult to found now, I keep with best conservations which made the collections still intact.
Please the collectors look that very rare butterflies in next chapter .
4. During the 50th years anniversary of Indonesian Independent Days in 1965, at the native stands I bought some very rare Butterflies from the native West Java conservations.

5. In 1956, I bought at Jakarta a veryrare female Brookiana, very difficult to catch in Indonesia, many in sarawak that is why the name of Rajah Brooke were given to that butterflies.

This day UCM short show will installed the hot breakingnews in this year about the Adventure of Smalia Pirates, and I have seen the very interesting documentary film at National Geographic TV channels about The Americal cargo ships captain and crew have fight against the Somalia pirates hijack, very difficult to take the picture because the documentary film have taken in the night from the outside of Captain cabin, and also the pirated red boat, I think better the collectors to see that interesting documentary Film, and also read and look at the illustration of vintage Somalia stamps , picture and document historic related with the collections. Very difficult to find the Somalia collection in Indonesia, may be we will found more easeir at Itay because Somalia before The Italian Colony. the installed will finished in two days .

1.Kolektor Indonesia tentunya sudah mendengar tentang bajak laut Somalia yang membajak kapal dagang yang liwat diwilayahnya untuk memperoleh tebusan uang guna dana perjuangan mereka umumnya kapal tersebut menyerah dan membayar tebusan yang jumlahnya jutaan dolar, termasuk awak kapal Indonesia juga pernah dibajak tetapi dilepaskan dengan keadaan sehat, Apakah anda tahu dimana lokasi somalia dan bagimana sejarah dan koleksi apa yang dapat ditemui di Indonesia, serta kisah pertualangan bajak Laut somalia dalam film dokumenter pada national geography TV chennel, bagaimana perlawanan dari para awak kapal dan bagaimanakan profil para pembajak, awak kapal dan keluarganya seperti di siarkan beritannya oleh TV CNN silahkan click THE SOMALIA UNIQUE COLLECTIONS, agar and tidak ketinggalan informasi, kisah pertualangan para bajak laut Smalia dan awak Kapal Amerika sangat mencekam , rasanya sangat mendebarkan khususnya bagi anda yang memiliki hobbi sebagai petualang tentunya menarik. Saya pernah merasakan bagaimana rasanya naik Pesawat terbang dari Bangkok ke singapore naik pesawat timur tengah tahu 1997, saat itu banyak pesawat di bajak dan bagaimana saya dengan isteri digeledah dan bagaimana rasanya dalam suasana mencekam, karena saat itu tidak ada pesawat yang dapat membawa kami kembali ke Indonesia, sedangkan saya sudah harus masuk kerja cutinya sudah liwat, baca dalam Kisah pertualangan Dr Iwan naik pesawat Timur Tengah Air Jordan dari Bangkok, dan berjuang naik pesaawt garuda dari singapore ke jakarta tahun 1997, akan diinstalled dengan judul Kisah pertualangan dr iwan Naik Pesawat Timur Tengah tahu 1997.

2.Kisah Perlawanan Kapten and Awak kapal Amerika terhadap pertualangan Bajak laut Somalia.
Kompilasi dari berbagai sumber Informasi oleh Dr Iwan S.
@copyright Dr iwan S.2010.

(1)Banjak Kapal yang di bajak oleh para Bajak laut dari Somalia tidak mendapatkan perlawanan, termasuk kapal Taiwan dengan beberapa Awak kapal dari Indonesia yang umunya selamat dibebaskan setelah bernegosiasi dan membayar uang tebusan.
Pada tanggal 8 April 2009, bajak laut Somalia mendapatkan perlawanan dari kapten dan awak kapal Amerika setelah mereka menyusun suatu taktik yang sangat tepat dan dapat mengelabupara Bajak laut somalia yang umunrya adalah bekas nelayan yang merasa daerah perairan taanh airnya dimanfaatkan
dengan leuasa oleh Kapal Asing karena situasi dalam negeri Somalia yang dalam keadaan perang saudara (informasi lengkap baca dalam bahasa Inggris The Somalia Unique Collections)
Taktik yang digunakan adalah dengan memperdaya Bajaklaut yang menodong dan mengancam kapten kapal dianjungan, dengan sandi bila ada pengumuman tanpa kata aman berarti tidak perlu dilaksanakan perintah Kapten. Ketika kapal bajak laut mndekati Kapal dan memerintahkan untuk kapal berhenti,kapten kapal menelpon keluarganya. Lihat bagaimana sikap keluarga kapten dan awak kapal saat mendengar kapal suaminya dibajak direkam dari siaran CNN (illustrasi Keluarga kapten dan awak kapal saat itu)

(2)Bajak laut yang telah mengikuti kapal Amerika yang berangkat dari Mombasa kenya meliwati perairan Somalia dan kemudian beberapa orang dengan senjata AK (Andre Kolanikov) buatan Rusia naik kapal menuju anjungan pengemudi dimana ada Kapten Kapal yang telah banyak pengalaman dan pengemudi turunan Asli afrika.
Dalam ilustrasi terlihat bagaimana wajah Kapten Kapal yang berpeluh dan ketakutan begitu juga awak kapal suku asli Afrika.
Pemimpin Bajak laut memerintahkan kapten kapal untuk memanggil seluruh awak kapal untuk berkumpul di anjungan Kapal.
sesuai dengan dengan rencana, Kapten kapal memberikan pengumuman tanpa kata aman, sehingga seluruh awak kapal siaga diarea mesin kapal, mesin kapal dimatikan.

(3) pemimpin Bajaklaut memberikan waktu lima menit, bila awak kapal tidak naik dan berkumpul digeladak kapal maka satu persatu awak kapal dan kapten kapal yang berada dianjungan kemudi akan dibunuh.
Kapten kapal mengatakan mungkin speaker di kapal rusak sehingga tidak dapat mendengar pesan kapten kapal,
Pemimpin bajak laut bersama awak kapal turunan asli Afrika, berjalan turun kearah area mesin kapal, disana beberapa awak kapal senior yang merupakan pensiunan Marinir Amerika sudah siap menghadapi Bajak Laut dengan senjata tajam karena mereka tidak memiliki senjata api.

(4)Saat pemimpin bajak laut turun kearea mesin kapal, salah seorang awak kapal Amerika menangkap pemimpin Bajaklaut somalia, semula ia ingin membunuhnya dengan menusuk leher Bajaklaut tersebut, tetapi awak kapal senior melarangnya karena nanti seluruh Bajak Laut akan menyerbu kapal,

(5)Kemudian diadakan negosiasi , Tawanan akan dipertukarkan, Bajak laut boleh mengambil uang yang ada dianjungan kapten kapal dan di silahkan pergi , setelah negosiasi yang cukup menegangkan (lihat Bajaklaut menelpon temannya), akhirnya mereka setuju (lihat ill.Bajak laut yang diikat tanggannya).

(6) Saat bajak laut meninggalkan Kapal amerika, mereka meninggalkan sebuah kapal merah kecil ,mungkin ada bahan peledak. kapten kapal menghubunggi Kapal Angkatan laut Amerika yang berada disekitar wilayah tersebut, dan mengirim helikopter untuk menghancurkan kapal bom bajak laut (lihat illustrasi helikopter penyelamat).

(7) Lihat bagaimana ekspresi keluarga kapten dan Awak kapal amerika ketika mendengar suaminya selamat, dan juga illustrasi awak kapal turunan asli afrika saat kapal dibebaskan, dan bagaimana suasana pertemuan kaptendan awak kapal amerika dengan keluarganya di lapangan terbang dan foto Presiden Obama saat bertemu dengan kapten kapal. Presiden Obama mengucapkan terima kasih dan selamat ata perjuagan Kapten kapal dan awak kapal. (ternyata Bajaklaut Somalia tidak profesional, mereka hanyalah nelayan biaya yang ditunggangi ex militer Somalia dan tentunya berbagai pihak yang memanfaatkan situasi, Perserikatan bangsa-bangsa juga telah membentuk satuan pengaman wilayah perairan somali dari negara India, tetapi menurut informasi bajaklaut Somalia tetap eksis, tetapi kapal Amerika akan eselalu memberikan perlawanan. harap komentar dari kolektor Indonesia ,apakah Anda sudah penah mendengar kisah pertua-langan ini dan pernah melihat profile Bajaklaut somalia liwat comment -Dr iwan suwandy. )

B. The Vintage National Geography Magazine Graham bell Telephone Info 1936

A Prophecy of 1877
One of the first business telephone transactions on record, and probably the firs over ‘long distance’ was between a Travelers man and the father of Alexander Graham Bell- concerning an accident insurance policy.
A publication of the period quaintly observed :’This,we think, is the latest novelty in accident insurance, and a fresh demonstration of the usefulness of Prof. Bell’s invention. It is not only capable odf transmitting the human voice over long distamces, but preserves every articulation distinctly, and it no doubt destined ere long to be of great practical value’.
Prophetic words! Both telephone and the Travelers have come a long way since that day in 1877. Both have grown into vast service networks that cover the entire cntinent.
Today (1936),thanks to this expansion, the holder of Trevelers Accident and Automobile Insurance, while he may be out of luck, is never out of reach of help when he needs it. No matter where he may meet with an accident, he has only to call the nearest Travellers man for prompt service.
For travellers has thousands of representatives, and claim statins located strategically throughout the Unites States and Canada. Thus Travellers policyhlders can be certain, not only of accurity is along-established company, but of getting their money when and where they need it. (look at Graham Bell with his telephone in 1877 book picture illustration, and anther Graham Bell vintage pictures)

C. The Vintage Bandung Magazine 1975 about Telephone inventions.
(1) Alexander Graham Bell telephone
It Happened on March,10th.1876, Alexander Graham Bell , was the first man to have his voive transmitted by telephone. In his labotary while he was wrking on a transmitting instrument he had just invented, Bell spilled acid from a battery over his clothing. Spontaneously he immediately spoke through the instrument to call his assistent , warsn, who was in another room:’Mr Watsn,come here. I want you!’ Watsn rushedinto laboratry, shouting ‘ Mr Bell, I heard every word you said, very vclearly!’ the acid that was spilled in Bell’s laboratory in Bston uSA accidentally helped to make the day one to be remembered by the whole world as the date when the telephone came into existance. the first telephone that could be used publicly was installed in 1877; today (1975) more than 170 millin telephones in the world.
Perhaps Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor, didnot rea,ized that his discovery was going to become one of the most important means of communications.

(2)The word telephone comes from the Greek words tele meaning far and phone meaning sound. These words actually describe what the telephone does. It carries sound over a distance, by using electric currents. The telephone transmits speech so that it sounds natural.

(3)Lars Magnus Ericsson Telephone
Two year after Bell invention,in 1879, a Swedish name Lars Magnus Ericsson also succeeded in making a telephone in his own cuntry. Although this equipment was rather primitive compared with today’s telephones, the word was amazed by Ericsson’s creativity (look the illustration of Ericsson profile and his first telephone)
When Ericsson retired frm bussiness activities in 1903, his company had already grown and was well known throughtut the world. Nowadays Ericssn’s company can make a picture telephne so that you can see the person’s who is talking to you. Using this instrument you can show your companion picture,photos,diagrams and the likje, while you talk to him on transmitter (1975)
As you often see in foreign film (now everybodies in Indnesia and the world have the digital handphone, and Ericsson company joint with Sony was one of the modern first product now ), there is wieless or radio telephone that doesn’t use a telephone cable.
Ericsson also made the first buttons telephones , change from the Dial telephones.( Sonny Ericsson product also developed in the technology until now,like Ipod and blackberry etc)
