Global Warming speech

28 Feb

This is my speech and already used in a contest. 

Free to use but ask me first. Credits belong to me and internet.

Good morning/afternoon/evening.

May God bless all of you.

First of all, thank God that all of we can gather here with a healthy body and mind. And I would like to say thank you to the teacher and my entire friend that has given me an opportunity for a speech on this nice day…

Have you ever feel that day to day, the temperature is increasing? This is what we called global warming.  An increasing of the earth’s temperature. It said that this is the biggest problem in this century.

In 1824, Joseph Fourier found that atmosphere can be emerged by sun’s light. But not all of them can be reflected out. Then about 30 years later, John Tyndall found that gasses that trapped heat are the carbon dioxide and finally that’s those molecules named greenhouse gasses.

This greenhouse effect is the main cause of the global warming. This effect is an effect where sun light reflected to the earth is trapped inside the atmosphere. The sun’s energy is absorbed by the earth and reflected again in the shape of infrared by the earth’s surface and the cloud, but largely is trapped. Actually in normal state, the effect is needed to keep the earth warm, about 30o C.

The cause of the greenhouse effect is the increasing of carbon dioxide and the other gasses in this atmosphere. This is because of the combustion of fuel and other organic contain that surpasses the plant and sea’s capability to absorb it.

The other cause of global warming is the solar variation. It is a change in sun’s radiation. Greenhouse gases and solar forcing affect temperatures in different ways. While both increased solar activity and increased greenhouse gases that are expected to warm the troposphere, an increase in solar activity should warm the stratosphere, while an increase in greenhouse gases should cool the stratosphere.

Continued global warming could have many damaging effects. For example, the weather becomes unstable. The scientists predict the arctic ice is melting due to global warming. Because of that the ocean’s surface is slowly increasing. The ocean surface said had increase 10- 25 cm during the 20th century and the scientists predict more. The global temperature has also increase 1o every 100 years. Small it is, but have you realize 1o is this hot?

With that, all live without exceptions are threatened. Trees which are the antidote for the greenhouse effect had been logged. Every day, a soccer field sized field of tree has been log. We must realize it’s not the same as past, when we and nature live all happily. Now, we hurt each other. Cruel, isn’t it?

One more example is here, in our country. The lapindo brantas case. It’s very terrible that there is no one could stand against that. Even now there isn’t any solution.

We as the young generation cannot just remain seated while nature suffering. We are blessed, but there are people who aren’t this lucky. They suffered. They’re dying every day. It is true that along with the globalization, people’s knowledge and awareness is increasing and they are reducing it little by little. Many bio friendly technologies are discovered. The plant has been replant one by one. But we still have to do something, right?

Firstly, plant a tree. This could be easier than it sounds. Join or help out a local wildlife group and ask to plant a tree. Trees, when fully grown, will help keep the planet cooler. On the same point, you could protest against the demolition of the rainforests. This is the same principle, we need the trees to cool our planet and yet they are chopping them down to create roads or homes.

Something as simple as walking instead of taking the car will help reduce pollution. As well as stopping pollution, you are giving yourself exercise, something important for our bodies. So the next time you get into your car, or your motorbike, think – do I have to make this journey by vehicle or can I walk?

When you are at home, and you’re getting a little cold, put a jumper on and do not adjust the heating. The extra heat produced by our homes also affects the planet. So try wearing an extra layer in winter.

If possible, buy your fruit and vegetables from local suppliers. And try to avoid imported goods. The more foreign food that we import the more pollution from airplanes and boats it will create.

Keeping to the speed limit can also help the environment. The more you speed the more petrol you are going to use, making the pollution higher. Also, SUV’s make about six times their own weight in CO2 each year. A small efficient diesel car covering the same distance not only uses much less fuel; it makes two thirds less.

If possible use solar energy, after all it is free; all you need to buy is the equipment. You can get much of your hot water and heating from the sun and even generate electricity.

Reduce, reuse and recycle. Only buy what you need; don’t stock the cupboards with things you may or may not use. Reuse whatever you can, like containers and paper, and recycle what you cannot reuse. It really is as simple as that.

Finally turning off unused sources of power such as televisions and heaters will help the environment, as well as save you money.

If everybody stuck to these rules, we would be doing a great thing by protecting the earth. So please take into consideration what I have said, and try to do your part. After all, it will be our next generation that will feel the effects

This is all can I can say. Maybe this speech has a lot of shortcomings. And is there a word that isn’t pleasing you, I’m truly sorry for that.

Heal the world, make it a better place. Thank you very much.

Drugs speech

28 Feb

This is my spech and already used in a contest. 

Free to use but ask me first. Credits belong to me and internet.

Good morning audience!

May God bless all of you.

My name is Michelle Nadya from public junior high school six Banjarmasin.

First, let’s thank God for his blessing that all of we can gather here with a healthy body and mind. I would like to say thank you too for the judges and all of you that given me a nice opportunity for a speech.

Drugs. What are them? A drug is any substance with the exception of food and water, which when taken into the body, alters the body’s function either physically or psychologically. When you put them into your body, drugs find their way into your bloodstream and are transported to parts of your body, such as your brain. In the brain, drugs may intensify or dull your senses, alter your sense of alertness, and sometimes decrease physical pain. A drug if consume will make the user addicted. Actually, these drugs are a medicine or antidote for some disease or to cure animal. But it is consumed by they who aren’t sick, beyond the limit dose.

Those were mostly victims of a ‘cruel’ environment, a broken-home family, of ignorance, of curiosity or particularly of the illegal drugs mafia. Why are the teenagers the most consumers of using narcotic and drugs? Because
Teenagers are usually eager to know every think and want to try it whether it is good or bad, and never think its effect. They are too easy to influence to do many thinks. Drugs vary. There are Heroin, shabu, Ecstasy, marijuana, cocaine, tobacco, and alcohol. The most people use drugs use shabu. These drugs are readily available in all major urban areas, including schools, Karaoke lounges, bars, cafes, discotheques, nightclubs, and they even spread into remote villages. Therefore it is not surprising that drug users continue to increase from year to year.

What’s the effect? Many. Well, drugs make the user feel free, happy, and such. But anything have a side effect. This too. Such, it can hurt our heart, hemoprosic, brain, bones, skin, lungs, infected AIDS and so much more. It also can make us depressed mentally, psychotics, or even make us commit suicide. The worst scenario, they died.

Drug abuse has also contributed to the increase of HIV/AIDS patients, through the usage of unsterile injections. According to a report based on an illicit drug and injection safety study of 20 Asian countries conducted by the Center for Harm Reduction in Australia’s Burnet Institute, drug injecting is spreading to all the countries [of Asia] and its popularity is increasing. Our Country, Indonesia have up to 1 million drug injectors, and 19% of them were infected HIV/AIDS. How Dangerous the drugs abuse for us.

This is an extremely serious issue for us. It’s a threat that could kill an entire generation. One generation of this nation will be lost if we do not take action together and immediately. In short, we must be ready to go to war against illicit drugs and the war must start from home.

Then, what can we do as the young generation? Prevention is better than cure.

Be aware of what you take. Know the names of the medications you take and what they are for.

Make sure that one doctor knows about everything you takeA lot of times each drug you take was prescribed by another specialist, and none of them is aware of the other specialists or the medications they prescribed. It’s important to update your primary caregiver about all the medications you take – this way he/she can see if you take drugs that don’t interact well, or take several drugs which do the same thing. It can help your doctors if you bring a list of the medications you take) to every appointment.

Ask your doctor questions. Try to understand why each drug is important, and ask if it’s necessary. Ask what the possible side effects of each drug are. Ask for how long you should take the drugs – some drugs are only for temporary use, while other are for a long term.

Don’t stop taking prescription drugs without talking to your doctor. Sometimes it’s dangerous to just stop taking a drug, and a gradual withdrawal is needed.

Consult a pharmacist about Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs, especially if you take prescription drugs as well.

Read the Drug label. This is especially important in Over-The-Counter drugs – the label includes information like the uses of the drug, warnings, a list of possible side effects, and information about the dosage and storage of the drug.

AVOID the Drugs, don’t ever think to try just because you curios. Because once you try, you will be trapped and later become addicted, and the addiction will finally turn you into criminals or take your lives.

Now it’s time for us to say ‘NO’ to drugs. Thank you.

 

Masashi Kishimoto’s Biography

28 Feb

Masashi kishimoto sensei’s biography!

Masashi kishimoto

Recent Role: on Naruto

Gender: Male

Born: 11-8-1974

Birthplace: Katsuta, Okayama Prefecture

Birth Name: Kishimoto Masashi

Born in the Okayama Prefecture in 1974 as the older of two twins, Masashi Kishimoto sprung on to the scene as one of the greatest mangakas in all of history just within the couple past years, with his beloved and ever popular manga of Naruto. Naruto has quickly become one of the most popular and best selling mangas of all time, read by millions worldwide each week.

As a pre-schooler Masashi Kishimoto was fixated with the TV show “Doraemon”, all of his friends at the time were in to the show as well, and everyone would draw pictures of the characters. Kishimoto was

always the perfectionist, pointing out obvious mistakes in other people drawings and showing them the way to draw it. “Now that I think about it, I sure was an annoying kid!” wrote Kishimoto.

In his elementary days, it would be safe to say that Masashi Kishimoto was obsessed with drawing (and are we sure glad that he stuck with it), during school he filled his notebooks with drawings, and he even would draw while playing hide and seek with his friends while he waited to be found. As previously stated, Doraemon was always the anime of choice for him until one day he saw an incredible show on TV, Mobile Suit Gundam, all his drawing time was now dedicated to drawing characters from that anime.

After awhile of drawing Mobile Suit Gundam characters, Kishimoto once again found a new anime, Akira Toriyama’s famous creation: Dr. Slump. Masashi Kishimoto recalls how he couldn’t believe how “super duper good” the art was and he began to draw the Dr. Slump characters and even submitted a crayon drawing of Arale-chan to a contest.

In his latter Elementary school days, Akira Toriyama’s most famous creation, Dragonball became an anime and for Kishimoto this spawned a whole new interest in Manga and Shonen Jump. Before this though there was another Jump anime entitled, Kinnikuman. Kishimoto and his brother would often play around trying to think their own character names. At the time they mostly revolved around condiments they could find in the refrigerator, like “Mustardman”.

Near the end of Elementary school, Masashi Kishimoto was strictly a Dragonball fan, he recalls how he was so obsessed with Akira Toriyama, “He was like a god to me, I was constantly drawing characters that appear in Dragonball.” At this stage in his life Kishimoto did not recieve an allowance to buy the 190 Yen Jumps, and would have to rely on a friend to show him jump to get his Dragonball fix.

It was at this stage in his life that Masashi Kishimoto made a decision that he is not regretting now, and many of his fans are thankful for. He started to think to himself that “Manga sure is great” and that he wanted to become a famous Mangaka like Akira Toriyama. Kishimoto created his first manga around this time entitled “Hiatari-kun”, a story revolving around a “Shadow ninja boy”.

Still in elementary school, Kishimoto was still obsessed with Akira Toriyama and would spend all of his extra time making his drawings look exactly like his idols. It was then that he saw a game that Akira Toriyama helped develop called “Dragon Quest”. The drawings were amazing, but unfortunately for Masashi Kishimoto he did not own a Famicon (Nintendo), which every other kid in his seemed to own. He certainly could not ask his parents for something of this nature, everytime his father heard the word “Video Game” he would tell Kishimoto to go study. It was then that his twin brother devised a plan to get a Famicon from someone else, but could someone willing to give away something worth 10,000 Yen possibly exist, he did and Masashi Kishimoto began to view this friend as a god.

After begging his father over and over repeatedly, Masashi Kishimoto finally recieved the game “Dragon Quest” the first game he had ever owned and the first time he had played an RPG game. His father that was so against video games began to play Dragon Quest as well, and just recently Kishimoto called his father, who had apparentally just beaten Dragon Quest 7.

In Junior High School, Kishimoto began to focus on things other then drawing. Baseball had become a big part of his life, and naturally there was alot more studying to do, which meant little or no time for drawing. He pondered to himself if he was “Too old to draw”, at this point an unbelievable event occured in his life. As he walked home from school he saw a movie poster, one of the best drawings he had ever seen, how could a person draw this good? The drawing was for Katsuhiro Ootomo’s “Akira”. This drawing rekindled the flame and passion to draw, and to this day he continues to draw continously in hopes of one day getting close to that picture.

After he learned of “Akira”, Masashi Kishimoto’s drawings changed in a big way. He spent hours studying and trying to understand the of Ootomo, but couldn’t. He then had a revelation that this was totally original, and nothing else was like this. It would be impossible to copy, much like a persons DNA. He couldn’t understand what was great about the drawings of both Ootomo and Toriyama, but there was a few things he could understand. The effects, designs, every small detail was perfect and different from other artists. Kishimoto then began thinking to himself that an attractive picture is an original one, learning how to copy other artists was pointless.

Kishimoto began to try and create his own but he found himself always copying someone elses to some extent, finding or creating an original would be very rare and near impossible. With this new belief, and the thought that Ootomo’s was unbeatable, Kishimoto began to try and make his drawings look exactly like his. As he entered his final year of Junior High, he would buy up all of the “Akira” material he could find and spend his time trying to draw the pictures exactly like Ootomo.

In the Eleventh Grade, Kishimoto created his first 31 page manga, he couldn’t tell if it was any good so he showed it to his brother. “Great isn’t it?!!” he asked. Only to get a reply of “This sucks!!”, naturally he couldn’t take his brothers word so he showed his father, and got the same reaction. Up until then Kishimoto had been really excited about submitting it for a Jump Magazine Award, but after that he lost the nerve and that manga will forever sit in the bottom of his desk drawer.

As a “simple, blind and stupid young man”, Kishimoto did not lose sight of his dream and thought to himself that if he wants to win the contest he will have to just keep creating mangas. His thinking may have been odd then, but looking back on it he reflects how it made excellent practice, plus he was so young his train of thought couldn’t be helped. After a few more manga projects, and being told that “This is no good” he began to wonder to himself why his mangas weren’t? What made other peoples better!?

Dedicating all of his time to figure this out, Masashi Kishimoto graduated high school ranked 38th out of 39th in his it quickly became obvious that with grades like this, he wouldn’t be getting into any college. No good at manga, no good at school, what would he do in life? Masashi Kishimoto didn’t give up, he got right back to drawing Manga, and inspiring to become a Jump mangaka. He reflects back on how his thoughts didn’t go to deep, “Well, things will work out!” was the extent of it. “Thank god for being stupid!”

Today everything has worked out for Masashi Kishimoto, his dreams of becoming a famous Jump mangaka have come true, his story about that shadow ninja boy, Naruto has become one of the best selling and most popular mangas worldwide. He has certainly shown that he can draw with the best of them, and despite all the adversities, he has succeeded. Masashi Kishimoto is a true inspiration, a true role model, and will go down in history as one of the best.

Goldilocks and the three bears

28 Feb

Just feelin’ like post this~

Goldilocks and the bears.

Once upon a time in a large forest, close to a village, stood the cottage where the Teddy Bear family lived. They were not really proper Teddy Bears, for Father Bear was very big, Mother Bear was middling in size, and only Baby Bear could be described as a Teddy Bear.

Each bear had its own size of bed. Father Bear’s was large and nice and comfy. Mother Bear’s bed was middling in size, while Baby Bear had a fine little cherrywood bed that Father Bear had ordered from a couple of beaver friends.

Beside the fireplace, around which the family sat in the evenings, stood a large carved chair for the head of the house, a delightful blue velvet armchair for Mother Bear, and a very little chair for Baby Bear.

Neatly laid out on the kitchen table stood three china bowls. A large one for Father Bear, a smaller one for Mother Bear, and a little bowl for Baby Bear.

The neighbors were all very respectful to Father Bear and people raised their hats when he went by. Father Bear liked that and he always politely replied to their greetings. Mother Bear had lots of friends. She visited them in the afternoons to exchange good advice and recipes for jam and bottled fruit. Baby Bear, however, had hardly any friends. This was partly because he was rather a bully and liked to win games and arguments. He was a pest too and always getting into mischief. Not far away, lived a fair-haired little girl who had a similar nature to Baby Bear, only she was haughty and stuck-up as well, and though Baby Bear often asked her to come and play at his house, she always said no.

One day, Mother Bear made a nice pudding. It was a new recipe, with blueberries and other crushed berries. Her friends told her it was delicious. When it was ready, she said to the family:

“It has to be left to cool now, otherwise it won’t taste nice. That will take at least an hour. Why don’t we go and visit the Beavers’ new baby? Mummy Beaver will be pleased to see us.” Father Bear and Baby Bear would much rather have tucked into the pudding, warm or not, but they liked the thought of visiting the new baby.

‘We must wear our best clothes, even for such a short visit. Everyone at the Beavers’ will be very busy now, and we must not stay too long!” And so they set off along the pathway towards the river bank. A short time later, the stuck-up little girl, whose name was Goldilocks, passed by the Bears’ house as she picked flowers.

“Oh, what an ugly house the Bears have!” said Goldilocks to herself as she went down the hill. “I’m going to peep inside! It won’t be beautiful like my house, but I’m dying to see where Baby Bear lives.’ Knock! Knock! The little girl tapped on the door. Knock! Knock! Not a sound…

“Surely someone will hear me knocking,” Goldilocks said herself, impatiently. “Anyone at home?” she called, peering round the door. Then she went into the empty house and started to explore the kitchen.

“A pudding!” she cried, dipping her finger into the pudding Mother Bear had left to cool. “Quite nice!” she murmured, spooning it from Baby Bear’s bowl. In a twinkling, the bowl lay empty on a messy table. With a full tummy, Goldilocks went on exploring.

“Now then, this must be Father Bear’s chair, this will be Mother Bear’s, and this one must belong to my friend, Baby Bear. I’ll just sit on it a while!” With these words, Goldilocks sat herself down onto the little chair which, quite unused to such a sudden weight, promptly broke a leg. Goldilocks crashed to the floor, but not in the least dismayed by the damage she had done, she went upstairs.

There was no mistaking which was Baby Bear’s bed.

“Mm! Quite comfy!” she said, I bouncing on it. “Not as nice as mine, but nearly! Then she yawned. I think I’ll lie down, only for a minute just to try the bed.” And in next to no time, Goldilocks lay fast asleep in Baby Bear’s bed. In the meantime, the Bears were on their way home.

“Wasn’t the new Beaver baby ever so small?” said Baby Bear to his mother. Was I as tiny as that when I was born?”

“Not quite, but almost,” came the reply, with a fond caress. From a distance, Father Bear noticed the door was ajar.

“Hurry!” he cried. “Someone is in our house . . .” Was Father Bear hungry or did a thought strike him? Anyway, he dashed into the kitchen. “I knew it! Somebody has gobbled up the pudding.”

“Someone has been jumping up and down on my armchair!” complained Mother Bear.

“and somebody’s broken my chair!” wailed Baby Bear.

Where could the culprit be? They all ran upstairs and tiptoed in amazement over to Baby Bear’s bed. In it lay Goldilocks, sound asleep. Baby Bear prodded her toe.

“Who’s that? Where am I?” shrieked the little girl, waking with a start. Taking fright at the scowling faces bending over her, she clutched the bedclothes up to her chin. Then she jumped out of bed and fled down the stairs.

“Get away! Away from that house!” she told herself as she ran, forgetful of all the trouble she had so unkindly caused. But Baby Bear called from the door, waving his arm:

“Don’t run away! Come back! I forgive you, come and play with me!”

And this is how it all ended. From that day onwards, haughty rude Goldilocks became a pleasant little girl. She made friends with Baby Bear and often went to his house. She invited him to her house too, and they remained good friends, always.

7 WONDERS OF THE WORLD

28 Feb

Dunno which version, its a document when im 11. XD

Great Wall of China 长城 – Location : China

The Great Wall of China is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in China, built, rebuilt, and maintained between the 6th century BC and the 16th century to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire from Xiongnu attacks during the rule of successive dynasties. Several walls, referred to as the Great Wall of China, were built since the 5th century BC. The most famous is the wall built between 220–200 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang; little of it remains; it was much farther north than the current wall, which was built during the Ming Dynasty.

The Great Wall stretches over approximately 6,400 km (4,000 miles) from Shanhaiguan in the east to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia, but stretches to over 6,700 km (4,160 miles) in total. At its peak, the Ming Wall was guarded by more than one million men. It has been estimated that somewhere in the range of 2 to 3 million Chinese died as part of the centuries-long project of building the wall.

Petra- Location :Jordan

Petra, the large valley running from the Dead Sea to the Gulf of Aqaba. It is renowned for its rock-cut architecture. Petra is also one of the new wonders of the world.

The site remained unknown to the Western world until 1812, when it was discovered by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt. It was famously described as “a rose-red city half as old as time” in a Newdigate prize-winning sonnet by John William Burgon. UNESCO has described it as “one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage. In 1985, Petra was designated a World Heritage Site.

Christ the Redeemer (statue) – Location :Brazil

Christ the Redeemer is a statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.[1] The statue stands 38 metres (120 ft) tall weighs 700 short tons (635 tonnes), and is located at the peak of the 700 metres (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city. It is the tallest of its kind in the world. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone. A symbol of Christianity, the statue has become an icon of Rio andBrazil.

The idea for erecting a large statue atop Corcovadowas first suggested in the mid 1850s, when Catholic priest Pedro Maria Boss requested financing from Princess Isabel to build a large religious monument. Princess Isabel did not think much of the idea and it was completely dismissed in 1889, when Brazil became a Republic, with laws mandating the separation of church and state.The second proposal for a large landmark statue on the mountain was made in 1921 by the Catholic Circle of Rio. The group organised an event called Semana do Monumento (“Monument Week”) to attract donations and collect signatures to support the building of the statue. The donations came mostly from Brazilian Catholics. The designs considered for the “Statue of the Christ” included a representation of the Christian cross, a statue of Jesus with a globe in his hands, and a pedestal symbolizing the world. The statue of Christ the Redeemer with open arms was chosen.

Machu Picchu- Location : Peru

Machu Picchu is a pre-Columbian Inca site located 2,400 meters (7,875 ft) above sea level. It is situated on a mountain ridge above the Urubamba Valley in Peru, which is 80 km (50 mi) northwest of Cusco and through which the Urubamba River flows. The river is a partially navigable headwater of the Amazon River. Often referred to as “The Lost City of the Incas”, Machu Picchu probably is the most familiar symbol of the Inca Empire. It is also one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

It was built around the year 1460, but was abandoned as an official site for the Inca rulers a hundred years later, at the time of the Spanish conquest of the Inca Empire. Although known locally, it was said to have been forgotten for centuries when the site was brought to worldwide attention in 1911 by Hiram Bingham, an American historian. Since then,Machu Picchu has become an important tourist attraction. It has recently come to light that the site may have been discovered and plundered several years previously, in 1867 by a German.

Chichen Itza- Location :Mexico

Chichen Itza is a large pre-Columbian archaeological site built by the Maya civilization located in the northern center of the Yucatán Peninsula, in the Yucatán state, present-day Mexico.

Chichen Itzawas a major regional focal point in the northern Maya lowlands from the Late Classic through the Terminal Classic and into the early portion of the Early Postclassic period. The site exhibits a multitude of architectural styles, from what is called “Mexicanized” and reminiscent of styles seen in central Mexico to the Puuc style found among the Puuc Maya of the northern lowlands. The presence of central Mexican styles was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most contemporary interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion.

Colosseum – Location :Italy

The Colosseum or Roman Coliseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre, is an elliptical amphitheatre in the center of the city of Rome, Italy, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and Roman engineering.

Occupying a site just east of the Roman Forum, its construction started between 70 and 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus, with further modifications being made during Domitian’s reign (81–96). The name “Amphitheatrum Flavium” derives from both Vespasian’s and Titus’s family name (Flavius, from the gens Flavia).

Originally capable of seating around 80,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. As well as the gladiatorial games, other public spectacles were held there, such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based on Classical mythology. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine. It has been estimated that about 500,000 people and over a million wild animals died in the Colosseum games.

The Colosseum is also depicted on the Italian version of the five-cent euro coin.

Taj Mahal – Location :India

The Taj Mahal , is a mausoleum located in Agra, India, that was built under Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. The Taj Mahal (also “the Taj”) is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements from Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. In 1983, the Taj Mahal became a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was cited as “the jewel of Muslim art inIndia and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage.”

While the white domed marble and tile mausoleum is most familiar, Taj Mahal is an integrated symmetric complex of structures that was completed around 1648. Ustad Ahmad Lahauri is generally considered to be the principal designer of the Taj Mahal.

Great Pyramid ofGiza- Location :Egypt

Note : Honorary status (the last remaining ancient wonder of the world)

The Great Pyramid of Giza, also called Khufu’s Pyramid or the Pyramid of Khufu, and Pyramid of Cheops, is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Necropolis bordering what is now Cairo, Egypt, and is the only remaining member of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is believed the pyramid was built as a tomb for Fourth dynasty Egyptian King Khufu (Cheops in Greek) and constructed over a 20 year period concluding around 2560 BC. The Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. Originally the Great Pyramid was covered by casing stones that formed a smooth outer surface, and what is seen today is the underlying core structure. Some of the casing stones that once covered the structure can still be seen around the base. There have been varying scientific and alternative theories regarding the Great Pyramid’s construction techniques. Most accepted construction theories are based on the idea that it was built by moving huge stones from a quarry and dragging and lifting them into place.

There are three known chambers inside the Great Pyramid. The lowest chamber is cut into the bedrock upon which the pyramid was built and was unfinished. The so-called Queen’s Chamber and King’s Chamber are higher up within the pyramid structure. The Great Pyramid of Giza is the main part of a complex setting of buildings that included two mortuary temples in honor of Khufu (one close to the pyramid and one near the Nile), three smaller pyramids for Khufu’s wives, an even smaller “satellite” pyramid, a raised causeway connecting the two temples, and small mastaba tombs surrounding the pyramid for nobles

Close up of Dolly’s taxidermied remains.

Dolly (5 July 1996 – 14 February 2003) was a female domestic sheep, and the first mammal to be cloned from an adult somatic cell, using the process of nuclear transfer.[1][2] She was cloned by Ian Wilmut, Keith Campbell and colleagues at the Roslin Institute and the biotechnology company PPL Therapeutics near Edinburgh in Scotland. She was born on 5 July 1996 and she lived until the age of six, at which point she died from a progressive lung disease.[3] She has been called “the world’s most famous sheep” by sources including BBC News and Scientific American.[4][5] The cell used as the donor for the cloning of Dolly was taken from a mammary gland, and the production of a healthy clone therefore proved that a cell taken from a specific part of the body could recreate a whole individual. On Dolly’s name, Wilmut stated “Dolly is derived from a mammary gland cell and we couldn’t think of a more impressive pair of glands than Dolly Parton’s”.[6][edit]Birth

The cloning process that produced Dolly

Dolly was born on 5 July 1996 to three mothers (one provided the egg, another the DNA and a third carried the cloned embryo to term).[7]She was created using the technique of somatic cell nuclear transfer, where the cell nucleus from an adult cell is transferred into an unfertilised oocyte (developing egg cell) that has had its nucleus removed. The hybrid cell is then stimulated to divide by an electric shock, and when it develops into a blastocyst it is implanted in a surrogate mother.[8] Dolly was the first clone produced from a cell taken from an adult mammal. The production of Dolly showed that genes in the nucleus of such a mature differentiated somatic cell are still capable of reverting back to an embryonic totipotent state, creating a cell that can then go on to develop into any part of an animal.[9] Dolly’s existence was announced to the public on 22 February 1997.[3]

Life

Dolly lived for her entire life at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh. There she was bred with a Welsh Mountain ram and produced six lambs in total. Her first lamb, named Bonnie, was born in April 1998.[3] The next year Dolly produced twin lambs Sally and Rosie, and she gave birth to triplets Lucy, Darcy and Cotton in the year after that.[10] In the autumn of 2001, at the age of four, Dolly developed arthritis and began to walk stiffly, but this was successfully treated with anti-inflammatory drugs.[11]

Death

On 14 February 2003, Dolly was euthanised because she had a progressive lung disease and severe arthritis.[12] A Finn Dorset such as Dolly has a life expectancy of around 11 to 12 years, but Dolly lived to be only six years of age. A post-mortem examination showed she had a form of lung cancer called Jaagsiekte,[13] which is a fairly common disease of sheep and is caused by the retrovirus JSRV.[14] Roslin scientists stated that they did not think there was a connection with Dolly being a clone, and that other sheep in the same flock had died of the same disease.[12] Such lung diseases are a particular danger for sheep kept indoors, and Dolly had to sleep inside for security reasons.

Some have speculated that a contributing factor to Dolly’s death was that she could have been born with a genetic age of six years, the same age as the sheep from which she was cloned.[15] One basis for this idea was the finding that Dolly’s telomeres were short, which is typically a result of the ageing process.[16][17] The Roslin Institute have stated that intensive health screening did not reveal any abnormalities in Dolly that could have come from advanced aging.[15]

Legacy

After cloning was successfully demonstrated through the production of Dolly, many other large mammals have been cloned, includinghorses and bulls.[18] The attempt to clone argali (mountain sheep) did not produce viable embryos. The attempt to clone a banteng bull was more successful, as were the attempts to clone mouflon (a form of wild sheep), both resulting in viable offspring.[19] The reprogramming process cells need to go through during cloning is not perfect and embryos produced by nuclear transfer often show abnormal development.[20][21] Making cloned mammals is highly inefficient (Dolly was the only lamb that survived to adulthood from 277 attempts). Wilmut, who led the team that created Dolly, announced in 2007 that the nuclear transfer technique may never be sufficiently efficient for use in humans.[22]

Cloning may have uses in preserving endangered species and may become a viable tool for reviving extinct species.[23] In January 2009, scientists from the Centre of Food Technology and Research of Aragon, in Zaragoza, northern Spain announced the cloning of thePyrenean ibex, a form of wild mountain goat, which was officially declared extinct in 2000. Although the newborn ibex died shortly after birth due to physical defects in its lungs it is the first time an extinct animal has been cloned, and may open doors for saving endangered and newly extinct species by resurrecting them from frozen tissue.[24] Cloning of domesticated animals could be important in the future production of transgenic livestock.[25]

My Adolescence

I had my adolescence when I was thirteen.
It started with acne that showed up on my face. It was very annoying. It lowered my self-esteem and I was embarrassed to come out of my house and play with friends.
Fortunately, my Mum gave me a good medicine. In three weeks, the acnes started to vanish although those showed some black spots in my face.
That was my bad experience with adolescence, though there were still lots of good experience too.

My First Experience to Ride Motorcycle
ditulis oleh Resdwitarini
One day, when I was ten years old, my father bought an old motorcycle. That was ” Honda 75″. I think it was small light object and easy to ride it. I persuaded my father to teach me to ride ” Honda 75 “. Firstly, my father refused my request and promised that he would teach me two or three years later, but I still whimpered. Finally, my father surrendered and promised to teach me.
He began to teach me riding the motorcycle around a field in my village. My father was very patient to give me some directions. I was very happy when I realized my ability to ride a motorcycle. ” Yes, I can “.
One day later, when I was alone at home, I intended to try my riding ability. So, myself tried bravely. All ran fluently in the beginning, but when I was going back to my home and I must passed through a narrow slippery street, I got nervous. I lost my control and I fell to the ditch.
After that, I told my father about the last accident. I imagined my father would be angry and never let me ride again. But the reality is exactly on the contrary, my father was very proud of me. He just gave me some advices and since that accident, I got my father’s permission to ride motorcycle.

It was takbiran night. It was also my birthday, and nothing happened. Or I had thought nothing would happen, but I was wrong.
That night, I was watching television with my family when I heard someone lit fireworks in my front yard. I peeped trough my window glass but could see nothing. It was very dark outside. Then I thought it had to be my cousins who lit the fireworks. Then I plopped down on my sofa again and tried to concentrate on the television since my mind raced with disappointment that no one gave something special on my birthday. I shrugged, it was almost the end of the day and I became pessimist. Five minutes later my mobile beeped. It was a text from my friend asking me to come out. Wondering what was going on, I grabbed my jacket and hurried to the front door. I was surprised to see her bring a bag full of firework and fire drills. Next I was surprised to see my other friend come out from the darkness. She brought a beautiful birthday cake on her hands. Oh my God! I shrieked. Then they gave the cake to me who was too stunned to say anything. I realized I was blushing furiously because my whole family was watching. Not to mention my neighbors too!
A plain day, or I thought it was before, turned out to be one of the greatest moment in my life. I didn’t even know how to describe what I felt. Happy was the simplest word.
RA Kartini
Every April 21, people in Indonesia commemorate the Kartini day. It is a beautiful day for the woman because we celebrate the birth of great lady, RA. Kartini. Everyone knows who Kartini is. She is our national heroine and a great lady with the bright idea.
Kartini was born in 1879, April 21 in Mayong Jepara. Her father was RMAA. Sosroningrat, Wedana (assistant of head of regency) in Mayong. Her mother, MA Ngasirah was a girl from Teluk Awur village in Jepara. As the daughter of a noble family, she felt luck because she got more than the ordinary people got. She got better education than other children. She did anything she wants although it was forbidden. She passed her childhood with her brother and sister. Because she was very energetic, her father called her “trinil”
Then her father was chosen as Bupati (the head of regency) in Jepara. She and her family then moved from Mayong to Jepara. In the same year, Kartini’s second sister RA Kardinah was born. The environment in Jepara gave her big chance to develop her idea. She could study at the Dutch owned school where only children from noble family could study here.
Few years after finishing her study, RA. Kartini was willing to continue her study in higher level. But the custom of that day forbid a woman to go to school. A tradition of that time, a teenage girl should be secluded and limited her activity. So was Kartini. She was secluded inside the house and forbidden to go out until a man proposes her. The rule could restrict her body but not her mind. During her “pingitan” time, she spent her time by reading book which she got from her relatives.Although she was not able to continue her study to higher level, she was smart had a bright idea. She got the knowledge from the books she read. To express her idea, she established a school for local people on the backyard of Jepara city hall.

In November 12, 1903, she married Adipati Djoyodiningrat, the head of Rembang regency. According to Javanese tradition Kartini had to follow her husband. Then she moved to Rembang. In September 13, 1904 she gave a birth to her son. His name was Singgih. But after giving birth to a son, her condition was getting worse and she finally passed away on September 17, 1904 on her 25 years old.

Now Kartini has gone. But her spirit and dream will always be in our heart. Nowadays Indonesian women progress is influenced by Kartini’s.

Last weekend was my luckiest day ever. Many good things were coming toward me.
When the morning broke in Sunday morning, I woke up and planned to jog around the neighborhood. So I changed my clothes and went to the bathroom to wash my sleepy face. As I stepped in the bathroom, I landed my foot on a soap in the floor and feel down. A perfect morning hi for me. Next, I began my jogging and saw my gorgeous neighbor, jogging to. I though it was a good fortune to omit the gap between us. So I jogged to him and say hello. But, how poor of me, it was not him. It just someone I never met before who looked like to him. I was going home with people laugh at me along side of the street.
When I got home, the breakfast already settled and I immediately spooned a big portion of rice and ate. After I have done my breakfast my mother came up and said that the meal have not ready yet and she said that I may have a stomachache if I ate it. It was proven, I had a stomachache for the next three days.

Ditulis oleh Ilima Fitri Azmi
One day, my sister said to me that she really wanted to go to the beach. So I promised her that the next day we would go to Maron beach in Semarang.
The next day, we prepared many things in the morning. We brought some foods and beverages, such as fried rice, chocolate wafers, potato chips, water and orange juice. Before going to the beach, I ask my boyfriend, Kiki, to join us going to the beach. He agreed to join and he came to my house. After that, we went to the beach. We went there by motorbike. It took 25 minutes to arrive there. Then, we bought tickets in the entrance gate. Before swimming, we changed our clothes first. We swam there for more than one hour. We felt so tired that we decided to eat the foods that we had brought. Next, my boyfriend and I created a very big sand castle, while my sister continued swimming. After that, we decided to go home because it was getting dark.
On the way home, we still felt hungry. So we stopped at a Javanese restaurant to eat something. I ordered gudeg, while my boyfriend and my sister ordered rames rice. After finished eating, we paid our bills. Then, we went home. We arrived at home at 6 o’clock and we were absolutely exhausted.That was a very exhausting day, but I felt so happy that I could have a vacation with my sister and my boyfriend.


THE FLOOD
Ditulis oleh Afifah Tri Hyuanawati
One Christmas in 2007, I was joining a final test try out at school. It was held from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. One of my schoolmates, Rini, asked me for accompanying her to the bus stop. When we arrived there, suddenly the heavy rain fell down from the sky. Rini suggested me to go home soon while she was entering the bus.It was still raining when I was home. The rain did not stop and became bigger when the night had come. People were standing in front of their house, hoping that the flood would not come. In the middle of the night, I got news that South Purwodadi had been drowned.

The next day, Purwodadi had become a flood area. All activities were paralyzed. No one went for work or school because the land had been covered by flood. However, I thank God for not allowing the flood entered my house. Even my house had been changed into an emergency kitchen. It was so crowded there. I and my father took a walk around the center market and Central Purwodadi. All that we could see was water and water. At night, the flood looked like a beautiful ocean with the moonlight on it. I felt as if I was one of the passengers of Titanic who was sailing on the sea.

Finally, the flood was starting to decrease in the next morning. I and my family cleaned our front yard together. That was the greatest flood that I had ever experienced in my hometown.

MY BUSY HOLIDAY
Ditulis oleh Rise Aditya Anggraeni
On April 16th, 2010, I thought this would be a great holiday for me because that was the holy day for Hindhu people . I was so tired about the study, so I guessed this time I could get full refresh anyway. However, the fact said the other way.
First like an ordinary daughter, I had to get up early morning helping my mother, of course after I prayed. Then I did my chores, cleaned up my room, and spread out my bed under the sun ray. I was really in danger if my mom knew that my room was messy. So, I made it as soon as possible. Second, my aunts called me in the afternoon. I did not meet them for a long time, that was the way I kept for hours to talk with them. After that, unpredictable my neighbor visited me. She asked my help finishing her homework. At last, the time was running and I just remembered that I had a lot of homework. I got mad, confused and regretful why I did not check my homework before. Therefore, I did my homework until 2:00 a.m. the next morning.I did not feel this was holiday instead of I had to work hard and got a long ship with my homework.

A STUDY TOUR TO BALI
Ditulis oleh Sri Suswanti
I was in senior high school when at the first time I went to Bali Island. I went there with my teachers and my friends. It was a study tour actually. My teacher, me class friends, and I were in the same bus. We left our school at 8 a.m.
The journey from Pati to Bali took a day. I was so exhausted because I had to sit along the journey. Actually, it was a funny journey because I spent all of my time with my friends, like playing games, laughing, and kidding. But I felt that all of my tiredness gone all of sudden when we arrived at the Sanur Beach. It was still morning, I saw a sun rise which was so beautiful. Then we were drove to the hotel to take a rest and had meals. After that, we went to the Nusa Dua Beach. There were so many activities to do there. We could play parasailing, banana boat, and so on. But I chose to go to a little island which had a lot of reptile there. There were snake, turtles, etc. The scenery was so beautiful because I was in the middle of the sea! Next, we went to Garuda Wisnu Kencana (GWK). There were two statues which were so big. They were Wisnu and his bird, called Garuda. I was interested in its relief on the rock but, actually, I did not know the story on it. At last, we went to the Sosro Company. We learned a lot of things there from the first step till the end of making a tea. After that, we went back to Pati.
After a very long journey, through the land and the sea, I learned something about nature and human products. Although it took a lot of my energy, I felt so happy because I spent all of my time with my friends.
MY FIRST EXPERIENCE TO BE AN ALONE BACKPACKER
Ditulis oleh Asih Yulianti
I like to go out to find a new place.
When I was in second semester, I went to Bekasi alone to visit my friend. I built my strenght to go there without knowing anything.
Firstly, I went to Terboyo to find Sinar Jaya bus to Bekasi. Unfortunately, there was no Sinar Jaya bus. A man in a locket told me to go to someone who could bring me to Bekasi. I felt so happy bacause my planning would be happen. I just payed money and got the bus. Everything was gonna be alright until the bus came to Tegal.
In Tegal bus station, a man in the bus asked me go out from the bus because that bus would bus come to Bandung.,not Jakarta ones. I felt so confused because there were so many strange men around me. After they talked for several hours, i was brought to a new one. I tried to adapt in that bus. People around me said that was true bus to Bekasi. I could not guess what I felt. The bus walked so fast until in Cikampek. When the bus was in Cikampek subway, someone told me that the bus did not pass Cikarang, so when I wanted to go tehre, I had to take off in Lippo.
Fortunately, a man told me that he had the same destination with me. I felt so happy. I could not imagine if there was not that man.
MY HOLIDAY……UNPREDICTABLE BUT FUN 
Ditulis oleh ChristiyaniIt was Sunday, the end of my holiday indeed, when friends of mine suddenly came to my home and picked me up. They told me that we were going to go out of town. That was unpredictable and really surprised me because there was no any confirmation before.

At 9 o’clock in the morning, we departed from my home and realized that the road was very crowded. Then, we decided to take freeway to save the time. For about thirty minutes later, we were out. But not arrived yet. We tried to find a store to buy some food and drink as our provisions. After we got them, we continued our trip to Boyolali. Well, it took approximately two hours to get there.

In the afternoon, we arrived and came in to one of my friend’s house first. There, we could take some rest and had lunch together. After that, according to the plan, we had to continue our trip to go to Tlatar. But, my friend’s mother asked us to take some fruit as gift. The fruit such as mangoes, rambutans and guava. It was out of our meant, but we accepted it. Of course, moreover, they could complete our provisions, right?.

After we got a lot of gift, we went to Tlatar, a special nature park and pond in Boyolali. The way to get there was really nice, we could see the fields and woods around us with the beautiful mountain behind them. Furthermore, we could feel the fresh air which was difficult to be found in Semarang. In Tlatar, we could swim and fishing. While some of us were swimming, the others were fishing or just enjoyed the view. We also ordered some food and drink.

The other and the last place we visited was Badhe Dam. It was big dam in Boyolali. We got there when it was getting afternoon around at five o’clock. Well, the situation there was really amazing. It was the right place to calm our self and mind. The beautiful dam with the blue sky were really a wonderful mixture of nature. We relaxed and felt calm. And did not forget to take pictures together.

At six, we realized that it was getting to dark, we had to back to Semarang. So, we decided to departed right away. We were very glad and enjoyed our trip together. We would never forget it.

Vacation

On Friday, we went to the Blue Mountain.  We stayed at David and Della’s house.  It has a big garden with lots of colorful flowers and tennis court.

On Saturday, we saw the Three Sisters and we went on the scenic railway.  It was scary.  Then, Mom and I went shopping with Della.  We went to some antique shops and I tried on some old hats.  On Sunday, we went on the scenic Skyway and it rocked.  We saw cockatoos having shower.

In the afternoon, we went home.

Medical Problems

One day I was setting in the local library, I started to read a medical encyclopedia that was lying on the table in front of me. The first illness I read about was cholera. As I read the list of symptoms, it occurred to me that perhaps I had cholera myself. I sat for a while, too frightened to move.

Then, in a kind of dream, I started to turn the pages of the book again. I came to malaria. Yes, there was no doubt about it – I had malaria too. And I certainly had hepatitis. And yellow fever. And so it went on. I read through the whole book, and by the end I came to the conclusion that I had every illness. There was only one illness I didn’t have – and that was housemaid’s knee.

I sat and thought, and I became more and more worried. I wondered how long I had to live. I examined myself. I felt my pulse. At first, I couldn’t find it at all; then, suddenly it seems start off. I looked at my watch to time it – it was beating 147 times a minute. I tried to feel my heart. I couldn’t feel it. It wasn’t beating. I stuck my tongue out and tried to look at it. I could only see the end of it, but from that I was even more certain than before that I had yellow fever.

I went straight to my doctor, who was a good friend of mine. “What’s the matter with you?” he asked. “I have every illness in the medical encyclopedia.” I told him how I read the medical encyclopedia. Then he opened my mouth and looked at my tongue, and he felt mu pulse, and he listened to my heart. Then he sat down and wrote a prescription. It said:

  • 3 good meals every day
  • A two-mile walk every day morning
  • Be in bed at 11 o’clock every night
  • Don’t read medical books!

I followed the doctor’s instructions, and I am happy to say that I now feel quite well again.

With Bikes to Smith Beach

Last week my friend and I were bored after three weeks of holidays, so we rode our bikes to Smith Beach, which is only five kilometres from where I live.  When we arrived at the beach, we were surprised to see there was hardly anyone there.  After having a quick dip in the ocean, which was really cold, we realized one reason there were not many people there.  It was also quite windy.

After we bought some hot chips at the takeaway store nearby, we rode our bikes down the beach for a while, on the hard, damp part of the sand.  We had the wind behind us and, before we knew it, we were many miles down the beach.  Before we made the long trip back, we decided to paddle our feet in the water for a while, and then sit down for a rest.  While we were sitting on the beach, just chatting, it suddenly dawned on us that all the way back, we would be riding into the strong wind.

When we finally made it back home, we were both totally exhausted!  But we learned some good lessons that day.

 Vacation to Jogjakarta

On Wednesday, my students and I went to Jogjakarta. We stayed at Dirgahayu Hotel which is not far from Malioboro. On Thursday, we visited the temples in Prambanan. There are three big temples, the Brahmana, Syiwa, and Wisnu temples. They are really amazing. We visited only Brahma and Syiwa temples, because Wisnu temple was being renovated. On Friday morning, we went to Jogja Kraton. We spent about two hours there. We were lucky because we were led by a smart and friendly guide. Then we continued our journey to Borobudur. We arrived there at four p.m. At 5 p.m. we heard announcement that Borobudur gate would be closed. In the evening we left for Jakarta by Wisata bus.

To the Ball Dome

Last night our family went to Ball Dome to watch the Kings play the Shooters.

When we got to the stadium, an usher showed us our seats. Just as we sat down the band played the national anthem so we stood.

After the anthem both teams entered the court. As they did, the cheerleaders waved their steamers.

Next, the referee placed his whistle in his mouth and signaled the start of the play. The game was so hot that the supporters of the two teams yelled out their chants every time a player scored the point.

In the end, the Shooters won and our family was happy that both teams had given their best.

School…

My mother got me ready for school then I had to wait for her to brush my hair and place every strand in just the perfect position. I had to show her my shoes that I had cleaned the night before and my school bag had to be neatly put on my shoulder before I could get near the door. Only after my mother was totally satisfied would I be allowed to rush out of the front door.

I would leave home at 8 am on the dot and make my way down the lane. After a walk of about 700 metres I would be able to see the tall steeple of the school.
The playground would be full in the summer and the noise would make me want to rush into the yard and get into a good game of football before the bell went.

Earthquake

Let me remind you my experience during an earthquake last week. When the earthquake happened, I was on my car. I was driving home from my vocation to Bali.
Suddenly my car lunched to one side, to the left. I thought I got flat tire. I did not know that it was an earthquake. I knew it was an earthquake when I saw some telephone and electricity poles falling down to the ground, like matchsticks.
Then I saw a lot of rocks tumbling across the road. I was trapped by the rock. Even I could not move my car at all. There were rocks everywhere. There was nothing I could do but left the car and walked along way to my house, in the town.
When I reached my town, I was so surprised that there was almost nothing left. The earthquake made a lot of damage to my town. Although nothing was left, I thanked God that nobody was seriously injured.

My Rush Time as a Journalist

I usually woke up at eight o’clock a.m. and went to the Press Center to check the daily schedule of briefings and press conferences. It was usually held by the United Nation officials or disaster mitigation team.

It was challenging to visit different refugee camps to find soft stories, human interest stories. After that I went back to the Press Center to cover the press conferences of the day.

It was heart breaking when I saw these survivors fight for food and secondhand clothing. Unfortunately as they said, the food and clothing were limited and inadequate. Emerging to glaring, fool noon, it was time to go back to Press Center to write stories and race against time. I was always fearing that the internet would come crushing down.

After everything was done, only then I remembered to eat. Most times, I only ate once a day because I always had to rush and again it was difficult to find food. I had to travel quite far. I needed to spend a 30 to 45 minutes by car just to find fresh food.

Mr. Richard’s Family Vacation

Mr. Richard’s family was on vacation. They are Mr. and Mrs. Richard with two sons. They went to London. They saw their travel agent and booked their tickets. They went to the British Embassy to get visas to enter Britain. They had booked fourteen days tour. This includes travel and accommodation. They also included tours around London

They boarded a large Boeing flight. The flight was nearly fourteen hours. On the plane the cabin crews were very friendly. They gave them news paper and magazine to read. They gave them food and drink. There was a film for their entertainment. They had a very pleasant flight. They slept part of the way.

On arrival at Heathrow Airport, they had to go to Customs and Immigration. The officers were pleasant. They checked the document carefully but their manners were very polite. Mr. Richard and his family collected their bags and went to London Welcome Desk. They arranged the transfer to a hotel.

The hotel was a well-known four-star hotel. The room had perfect view of the park. The room had its own bathroom and toilet. Instead of keys for the room, they inserted a key-card to open the door. On the third floor, there was a restaurant serving Asian and European food. They had variety of food.
The two week in London went by fast. At the end of the 14-day, they were quite tired but they felt very happy

ABOUT MANGA/ANIME~

MANGA

  •  pronounced “MAHN-gah”
  • the term manga was coined in 1814 by Hokusai, who is best known for his woodblock print, “The Wave”
  • “manga” written in kanji uses the characters “man” (involuntary) and “ga” (sketches), so manga basically means “involuntary/whimsical sketches”… in other words, cartoons.
  • Weekly Shonen Magazine was the first weekly magazine for children in Japan. It started in 1959.
    • Manga is a Japanese word that means “cartoons” or “comics”.
    • Mangas are read backwards for a North American, from right to left.
    • In the early 60s, mangas for girls were mostly mad by man authors. It all changes in the mid 60s with woman artists making their first creations.
    • Each resident of Japan spends around $30 US for mangas each year.

TYPES OF MANGA

  • SHOUJO
  • SHOUNEN
  • SEINEN
  • KODOMO
  • JOSEI

ANIME

  • pronounced “AH-nee-may”
  • the word “anime” is actually short for the English word “animation”
  • in Japan, “anime” can refer to any kind of animation at all, and people even call Disney movies “anime” there, but in pretty much of the rest of the world, “anime” is strictly reserved to Japanese animation
  • anime can be used in commercials and different kinds of media other than TV shows, like how we think of anime here
  • can completely hand-drawn or have CG effects (an example would be LASTEXILE)

PUBLICATION OF MANGA

  • manga are first published in special manga magazines, then in tankoubon form, which are basically trade paperbacks (when you go to the bookstore, the little manga books you buy are tankoubon)

MANGA MAGAZINES (AND POPULAR MANGA SERIALIZED IN THEM)

  • LaLa (Vampire Knight, Ouran High School Host Club, Penguin Revolution)
  • Weekly Shounen Jump (NARUTO, ONE PIECE, DEATH NOTE, BLEACH, GinTama, Black Cat)

  • Dengeki Daioh (Azumanga Daioh!, Yotsuba&!)
  • Bessatsu Margaret (High School Debut, Lovely Complex)
  • Shounen Gangan (InuYasha, Fullmetal Alchemist)

DOUJINSHI

  • Doujinshi are manga produced by small amateur publishers outside the mainstream commercial market
  • can be like fanfictions are here, where you use characters from already-created series and make up new storylines for them or continue an already-existing storyline
  • can be a parody on something
  • can be a completely original idea! ^^ (this is how CLAMP got famous)
