This year Toyota Production Predicted 10 Million Vehicles

Tokyo – Toyota Motor Corp automaker is expected to be capable of producing more than 10 million vehicles this year. By doing so, Toyota will be the first manufacturer to reach that number.

Reported Nikkei, Toyota car production increase is partly due to a weaker yen and strong demand for hybrid cars in Japan. It is estimated there will be 3.3 million of which will be produced in Japan, including the brand Toyota, Daihatsu and Hoino.

Toyota car sales last year alone not to 10 million vehicles, but was able to win the crown of best-selling car manufacturer in the world after lagging behind General Motors and Volkswagen in 2011.

Toyota also recorded a top car manufacturer in the world if you look at the sales of their cars for one semester this 2013. Toyota during the first 6 months in 2013, selling 4.911 million. This figure is still down 1.1 percent fewer than the same period last year following the cessation of the subsidy program for environmentally friendly cars. But in America, which is Toyota’s largest market, sales remained good.

In comparison, sales of General Motors rose 4.85 percent to million, while Volkswagen rose 5.5 percent to 4.7 million.

Toyota earlier back into the world’s top manufacturers last year after nominally slipping in third in 2011.

Car supply is reduced due to the tsunami in Japan and floods in Thailand making them have to relinquish the title in GM and Volkswagen in 2011. Though Toyota has become the world’s largest manufacturer from 2008 until 2010.

But not the Toyota name if it can not get up. Only a year after the slump they directly control the world.

Concoction

Requirements to get a good sap juice, one of them is by heating or fumigating container bamboo as reservoirs. The goal for the juice and sour sap not be damaged.

Meanwhile, bamboo is carried up to the top of the container used as a substitute for cider juice container already filled. While the bamboo container mounted on the base of a palm tree at Mayang previous period, was brought down.

Before installing a bamboo container, the base has been cut sap Virgin beaten several times. This extra treatment has become a tradition since the species is fairly sensitive plants.

Not infrequently, people recite certain mantras or prayers as will tapping sap in hopes of getting better results the next day. “In our belief, this juice extract to be in a state of heart and mind clean and quiet. Goal for the juice sweet, flavorful sap which is not typical of acid and smells bad,” said Abdul End (54), one of the palm sugar makers.

Instead, when tapping sap juice in a state of anger hearts and minds are messed up, you can bet the results are not good. Once the raw material obtained, the next process is to enter Semambu root, a herb hereditary typical villagers Kaiti.

Ie three doses of this herb root segments Semambu to about 15 liters of sap extracts were accommodated within approximately one meter long bamboo earlier.

In the first half (I) 2013, PT Pertamina Exploration and Production (EP) posted a profit of Rp 10 trillion more. Targeted for this year, a subsidiary of state-owned PT Pertamina is able to reap a profit of Rp 18 trillion.
Public Relations Manager of PT Pertamina EP, Amperianto Agus told reporters in Jakarta, Saturday (3/8) night suggests, corporate profits optimistic embrace of it is based on the production performance of oil and gas corporation that produced it.
He said that the present level of oil production per day PT Pertamina EP reached 132 thousand barrels. The expected production rate constant and even increases with the exploration and discovery of new reserves by corporations. “In 2012, corporate profit reached Rp 21.5 trillion,” he said.
This year profit target of Rp 18 trillion does not mean a decrease compared to last year. Agus argues that profits surge last year in addition to the corporate consistency in producing oil and gas, as well as exchange rate differences and the rise in oil prices in the international market.
“Target profit last year (2012) amounted to Rp 17 trillion,” he added.
Most of PT Pertamina EP oil fields located in Sumatra, especially in Jambi, South Sumatra, North Sumatra, and Riau. Pertamina EP also has oil fields in West Java, Central Java and East Java.
“We’re also there is quite a large project in Central Java and East Java. BUT, it is where the gas production is later used to supply gas power plant Tambaklorok Semarang.

Chairman of the Association of Meatballs: Meatballs Home Industry Feels Better

Meatballs made readily available large-scale industry. Ranging from traditional markets, modern markets, until the restaurant. However, homemade meatballs cottage industry remains the most savory. Chairman of the Merchants Association Noodles and Meatballs (APMISO) Indonesia has a reason.

According to the Chairman APMISO Trisetyo Budiman, tasty meatballs least determined by the purity of beef used. For meatballs, commonly used secondary cut of beef, such as topside, knuckle, and rump. In fact, those who use the primary cut of meat like a cube roll or tenderloin.

Sure, the price is not cheap raw materials. Moreover, a good meat for meatball ingredients is minimal fat meat. In addition, the composition of which is true meatball is more meat than flour. “8-10 kg of meat at the most appropriate sagunya 4-5 ounces, half a kilo,” Tri said when met at the office detikfood APMISO (29.04.13).

This is where the point distinction meatballs from large industries and cottage industries, namely the composition of meat and flour. Tri argues, large industries that supply supermarkets to sell their products at a low price in order to sell. This is done by increasing the flour over the meat. “More comfortable home industry for daring to give the meatballs with 99% beef,” said Tri.

Tri confident cottage industry will be equivalent to the branded companies. “It is possible, because of the taste (cottage industry) win,” he said optimistically. However, Tri recognizes small businesses still lost the other factors.

An example is the ignorance of a good business location because they do not have access to the information. “If the silent branded’ve visited, emailed, in-fuel,” he said. And he lamented, serving 20% ​​of SMEs in the malls now only discourse. “Policy makers should be encouraged, to provide support to SMEs to the next grade,” he continued.

Tri alone has venture Meatballs Ino who had scattered in Jakarta and outside the city. Most of the home-based industry-made meatballs sold in stores Meatballs Ino. However, those that are sold at retail raw.

In Jakarta, the brand meatballs are quite popular cottage industry in the traditional market is Monalisa. In Bandung, there Midshipman and Meatballs Meatballs Cihampelas. Modern market that target the middle class is usually filled with names like Meatballs Meatballs Kebun Kusno and Orange, which, according to Tri relatively large-scale industry.
