The Proclamation of Indonesian Independence was read at 10.00 a.m. on Friday, 17 August 1945. The document was signed by Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta, who were appointed president and vice-president respectively the following day. The draft was prepared only a few hours earlier on the night of 16 August 1945 by Sukarno, Hatta, and Soebardjo, at the house of Rear-Admiral Tadashi Maeda.

The wording of the proclamation had been discussed at length and had to balance both conflicting internal Indonesian and Japanese interests. Sukarno drafted the final proclamation which balanced the interests of both the members of the youth movement and the Japanese. The term ‘TRANSFER OF POWER’ was used in Indonesian to satisfy Japanese interests to appear that it was an administrative transfer of power, although the term used ‘pemindahan kekuasaan’ could be perceived to mean political power. The wording ‘BY CAREFUL MEANS’ related to preventing conflict with members of the youth movement. The wording ‘IN THE SHORTEST POSSIBLE TIME’ was used to meet the needs of all Indonesians for independence.

Initially the proclamation was to be announced at Djakarta central square, but the military had been sent to monitor the area, so the venue was changed to Sukarno's house at Pegangsaan Timur 56. The proclamation was heard throughout the country because the text was secretly broadcast by Indonesian radio personnel using the transmitters of the Jakarta Broadcasting Station.

It was the dawn of science and technology. Anything seerned possible-even the creation of life itself.

A natural disaster is a terrible accident, e.g. a great flood , a big fire, or an earthquake. It usually causes great suffering and loss of a large sum of money. The causalities are injured or died. Some people are homeless and need medical care.

Floods occur when the water of rivers, lakes, or stream overflow their banks and pour out into the surrounding land. Floods are caused by many different things. Often heavy rainstorms that last for a brief time can cause a flood. But not all heavy storms are followed by flooding. If the surrounding land is fl at and can absorb the water, no flooding will occur. If, however, the land is hard and rocky, heavy rain cannot be absorbed. Where the banks are low, a river may overflow and flood adjacent lowland.

In many parts of the world floods are caused by tropical storms called hurricanes or typhoons. They bring destructive winds of high speed, torrents of rain, and flooding. When a flood occurs, the destruction to the surrounding land can be severe. Whole villages and towns are sometimes swept away by water pouring swiftly over the land. Railroad tracks and buckles are uprooted from their beds. Highways are washed away.

When a building caught fire, the firemen pitched in to help battle the blaze. Before the pumps were invented, people formed bucket brigades to fight fires. Standing side by side, they formed a human chain from the fire to nearby well or river. They passed buckets of water from hand to hand to be poured on the flames.

The damage of fire did depend a great deal on where it happened. In the country or a small village, only a single house might burn down. But in crowded cities, fire often destroyed whole blocks and neighborhoods before being controlled.

A volcano is an opening in the Earth’s surface where molten rock can escape from underneath. The Earth’s surface is made up of tectonic plates, which are spreading apart, crunching into each other, or sliding beside one another. Volcanoes are typically found at the fault lines between these plates. There can be active volcanoes, which are currently, or have recently erupted. There are also dormant volcanoes, which haven’t erupted recently, and extinct volcanoes, which will never erupt again.

There are 4 major types of volcanoes:

Cinder Cone Volcanoes

These are the simplest type of volcano. They occur when particles and blobs of lava are ejected from a volcanic vent. The lava is blown violently into the air, and the pieces rain down around the vent. Over time, this builds up a circular or oval-shaped cone, with a bowl-shaped crater at the top. Cinder cone volcanoes rarely grow larger than about 1,000 feet above their surroundings.

Composite Volcanoes

Composite volcanoes, or strato volcanoes make up some of the world’s most memorable mountains: Mount Rainier, Mount Fuji, and Mount Cotopaxi, for example. These volcanoes have a conduit system inside them that channels magma from deep within the Earth to the surface. They can have clusters of vents, with lava breaking through walls, or issuing from fissures on the sides of the mountain. With all this material coming out, they can grow thousands of meters tall. As we’ve seen with the famous Mount Saint Helens, composite volcanoes can explode violently.

Shield Volcanoes

These are large, broad volcanoes that look like shields from above – hence the name. The lava that pours out of shield volcanoes is thin, so it can travel for great distances down the shallow slopes of the volcano. These volcanoes build up slowly over time, with hundreds of eruptions, creating many layers. They’re not likely to explode catastrophically. Perhaps the best-known shield volcanoes are the ones that make up the Hawaiian Islands, especially Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.

Lava Domes

Volcanic or lava domes are created by small masses of lava which are too viscous (thick) to flow very far. Unlike shield volcanoes, with low-viscosity lava, the magma from volcanic domes just piles up over and around the vent. The dome grows by expansion of the lava within, and the mountain forms from material spilling off the sides of the growing dome. Lava domes can explode violently, releasing a huge amount of hot rock and ash.

ASEAN private companies and its dialogue partner countries are expected to be more actively engaged in the region’s  economic integration process, says ASEAN deputy secretary-general Pushpanathan Sundram.

“We have provided several  channels for ASEAN public officials and private sections, such as regular consultations and business councils from ASEAN and partner countries, “he said during his presentation at the ASEAN Trade Facilitation Forum in Manado, North Sulawesi, on Saturday. He explained that it was important for ASEAN to pay close attention to responses and feedback from the private sector on the implementation of measures stipulated in the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) blueprint.

The forum was jointly held by the Indonesian Trade Ministry, the US Mission to ASEAN and the US Agency for Internasional Deevelopment (USAID) on the sidelines of the 43rd ASEAN Economic Ministers’ Meeting (AEMM). Sundram revealed that despite positive progress of the AEC blueprint measure implementation, several challenges remained in place, such as how to ensure a timely implementation of cutting issues such as coordination at national and regional levels,” he said.

Studying is a dreaded word that many college students hate to hear, but how about doing it internationally? Traveling the world is something many hope to do in life, so why not do it now while in college?

Exposure to international countries will allow college students the incredible experience of traveling. It also makes students aware of the way others work on a day-to-day basis. Students will also benefit socially from studying abroad due to the independence traveling internationally brings someone. Traveling abroad will make sure students will be more independent and mature than when they left. This is due to the student getting out of their comfort zone and trying something new.

Studying abroad has many advantages. There is no substitution for “being there.” In the twenty-first century we can experience things online but the only way to experience it fully is to travel.

Anybody who is over the age of six knows that there is nowhere safe for skateboarders to skate.This prevents young people from enjoying an active, energetic, and adventurous pastime.

Just watch a local street for a short while and note the steady stream of skaters speeding up and down the footpaths. Toddlers can be trampled on and old ladies can be knocked down as they struggle home  carrying their cat food from supermarkets. Thunderous rattles are heard on our main roads each night as skaters travel without fights and without signs to on coming cars.

Skateboarding is a serious sport that improves young people’s health. It increases fitness, improves balance,and strengthens the joints in kinees and ankless. Although it appears to be a solo sport, when groups practice together and complete to perform stunts or runs they form firm friendships.

Young people should be prevented form be coming overweight couch potatoes.If they are actively involved in skating, they do not smoke, take drugs, or break laws for fun.

Kids will always seek thrills and excitement. They need to pratice their 180’s, 360’s and Ollie’s free from restrictions. We must build skate parks in the suburbs so that street are safe for small children and senior citizens and skaters have spaces where they can race, chase, speed, and soar towards the surt.

They need to practice their 180’s, 360’s and Ollie’s free from restrictions (Paragraph 5)

“Laskar Pelangi”: The Audacity of Hope

This is a movie adapted from a best-selling Indonesian novel. It took 40 days of filming on Belitung Island, Bangka-Belitung province. Involving 12 local actors, it reportedly cost Rp8 billion. With all the efforts of transforming Laskar Pelangi (Rainbow Warrior) into a moving picture, will it satisfy readers’ imaginations?

Laskar Pelangi, the novel, was written by Andrea Hirata in 2005, based on his own experiences. It is about an inspiring teacher and her 10 students in the poverty-stricken Kampung Gantong in Belitung. The poor condition of their school building does not dampen their high spirits and hopes for a better future.

Two years later, the novel became a phenomenon in Indonesia literature. With its humanistic touch, Laskar Pelangi has sold more than 500,000 copies and has won the position of Must-Read Novel in every corner of the nation’s bookshops and media review pages. It has finally overcome the domination of teen-lit, chick-lit and even religious novels, the popular theme of today.

In July 2007, Mira and Riri started the per-production, which took a year to finish. Together with the scriptwriter Salman Aristo they decided to create a different scenario for the film.

My first time experience in Bali

At 55 I have just gone to Bali for the first time with my husband. We stayed in Seminyak and had a wonderful time. We took Jetstar in economy over and were in 2nd last row and even then by time off plane purchasing VOA and Immigration took about 1 hour - wasn't too bad. Departing last night, Jetstar was late by one hour but we had paid to go Business class so it was not that bad. We sat in Premier Lounge - not a great selection of food or wine (wine is my thing) but it was enjoyable anyway. Of course, new airport is underway and things may be different once that is up and running. We didn't get sick or robbed or bitten. Yes, footpaths are broken and or missing and some smells but that didn't 16deter us. People were friendly and so polite. The weather was just fantastic. When asked to take what looked like post cards we politely said "no thank you " and that was the last of it. Bintang beer mostly $2.50 very cheap and was the food and we ate in good restaurants - La Lucciola, Breeze, Sardine, Sarong and Metis. As we had breakfast supplied at The Samaya we didn't need lunch and we were given fruit salad by the pool and afternoon tea so only dinner was required. We enjoyed Sarong in particular. We used hand sanitizer and luckily for us we didn't get the dreaded dire - rear. A driver took us to Ubud and Jimbaran Bay and through Kuta. Mostly this was a relaxing one week there. Manicures, pedicures, hair, massage were so cheap - roughly $8 - we had these done at Body Works in Seminyak. I also had Wendy the dressmaker come to our hotel and made me skirts which I was very happy with. This morning in Sydney airport, it took us just 30 minutes to be off the plane and into a taxi. Jetstar made up time flying home - only 5 hours and 10 minutes. It was all a breeze. Bali had never been on my to do list, but I will be going back that is for sure.

Madrid (Reuters) - Spain’s most wanted thief, “The Loner,” Saw himself as a Robin Hood - Style figure and said he robbed banks only because they stole money from the public, his lawyer said Thursday.

Accused of killing three policemen and holding up more than 30 banks, jaime jimenez Arbe was planning to move on to insurance companies when he was arrested last month, Spanish media reported, citing lawyer Jose Mariano Trillo-Figueroa.

“I am not a killer and if I was obligeded to shoot at officers of the law, it was always against my will and in order to avoid being arrested,”  Jimenez said in a letter reproduced on the websites of newspaper El Pais and El Mundo. Trillo-Figueroa said Jimenez, who robbed the banks disguised in a false beard and a wig, thinks of himself s Curro Jimenez, a Spanish 1970s television bandit in the style of Robin Hood.

Once, a cap seller was passing through a jungle. He was dead tired and needed to rest. Then, he stopped spread a cloth under a tree. He placed his bag of caps near him and lay down with his cap on his head.

The cap seller had a sound sleep for one hour. When he got up, the fi rst thing he did was to look into his bag. He was startled when he foud all his caps were not there. He was wondering where they could have gone. Indeed, he was greatly puzzled.

When he looked up sky, he was very surprised to see monkeys sitting on the branches of a tree, each wearing a cap on his head. They had evidently done it to imitate him.

He decided to get his caps back by making a humble request to the monkeys. In return, the monkeys only made faces of him. When he began to make gestures, even when he raised his fi st towards them to threaten them, they also imitated him.

At last he hit upon a clever idea. “Monkeys are a great imitator,” he thought. So he took off his own cap and threw it down on the ground. As he had expected, all the monkeys took off the caps threw them down on the ground. Quickly he stood up and collected the caps, put them back into his bag and went away.

Why was each monkey wearing a cap on their head?

Remote sensing is the acquistion of information about an object or phenomenon, without making physical contact with the object. In modern usage, the term generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technology to detect and classify objects on Earth (both on the surface, and in the atmosphere and oceans) by means of propagated signals (e.g. electromagnetic radiation emitted from aircraft or satellites).

There are two main types or remote sensing: passive remote sensing and active remote sensing. Passive sensors detect natural radiation that is emitted or reflected by the object or surrounding area being observed. Reflected sunlight is the most common source of radiation measured by passive censors. Examples of passive remote sensors include film photography, infra-red, charge-coupled devices, and radiometers. Active collection, on the other hand, emits energy in order to scan objects and areas whereupon a sensor then detects and measures the radiation that is reflected or back scattered from the target. RADAR and LIDAR are examples of active remote sensing where the time delay between emission and return is measured, stabilizing the location, height, speed, and direction of an object.

Will solar energy ever be a main source of energy for industrial societies? The solar energy is cheaper than any fossil fuell because we can get the abundant source of energy from the sun.

In sunny deserts, the sun’s radiation that reaches the ground can be used to produce electricity for industries and homes. In one of experiment, solar ponds can produce hot water to drive generators.

Unfortunately, we can’t power our homes entirely on sunlight. Solar energy can only be exploited in bright light. Its great potential, therefore, is in countries that have clear skies for most of the year. Most houses, however, are not in the sunniest part of the world. In addition to convert sunlight directly into electricity, solar cells are needed. Although they are very cheap to turn, relatively they are expensive to buy and many people can’t afford them.

It was the dawn of science and technology. Anything seerned possible-even the creation of life itself. Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with this idea and works relentlessly to prove his theories; but the glory he imagined becomes a living nightmare- not only for him, but for this friends and family too.

Mary Shelley’s gothic horror story-Franken-stein-was first published in 1818 and has been the inspiration behind numerous stage productions and films-many of which strayed  a log way away from her original masterpiece. Classical Comics presenting a full-colour graphic novel remains true to this classic tale, bringing the original story to life which has never been created before.

This graphic novel is available in two versions : Original text and Quick Text editions. The Original text stays faithful to  Shelley’s original text, while the quick text brings the story up to date by presenting the text into a more simplified style so that the tale is accessible to all readers.

The Quick Text adition will allow you to soak up a general feeling for the characters and locations, while the original text version will help you easily slip into the languange in which the novel was written.

Even if you’re not studying the original, this graphic novel is worth buying. It’s a great story, and should be one that everyone has the chance to read. Now, thanks to this release , even those who don’t particulary like to read too much are given the chance to find this tale and hopefully it may encourange them to search out the original book too.

As with previous Classical Comics, the presentation is first class. The best grade glossy paper really helps to set this graphic novel head and shoulders above the usual comic book releases on the market. Not only that, you also get a pretty comprehensive biography of Shelley ; Mary Shelley’s Family Tree; a feature that explains what life was like in the year of the book’s release; and a brief look on how Frankenstein has been adapted to many different formats over the years.

Kapoposang is one of the largest of the Spermonde Islands, around 70 km northwest of Makassar, South Sulawesi. Kapoposang covers an area of around 50.000 hectares and is inhabited by around 100 families. Several other islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, lie near Kapoposang. The larger ones include Papandangan, Kondongbali, Suranti, and Tambakulu.

Kapoposang and the nearby islands were declared a Nature Tourism Park by the Departement of Forestry in 1999. Diving has been an important activity at Kapoposang. There were so few local divers at the time, and because of the distance from other wellknown diving areas in Indonesia, Kapoposang has basically remained a secret.

The best time to visit Kapoposang is between April and November, when the seas are calm, the weather favorable, and the wind less fierce than in the other months. The trip takes two hours by speedboat; the ocean breezes help to cool your skin in the hot morning sun. As you approach Pulau Kapoposang, you see the deep blue water, which suddenly meets an expanse of coral reefs between extensive shallows with white sands in the seabed.

Sea grass also grows lushly near the shore. The sea bed at Kapoposang has a unique composition; near the island are some quite shallow contours, and then suddenly steep underwater cliffs leading to seemingly endless depths. The water is very clear, you can expect underwater visibility of over 15 meters – ideal condition for divers.

Smoking a cigarette may be a normal routine to some, but in reality, it is purely a harmful activity. Ingesting smoke can be lethal, and can cause many diseases, such as cancer. But one common issue that most smokers overlook is its impact on others. This is known as secondhand smoke, the smoke produced from a cigarette or the smoke exhaled by a smoker. Secondhand smoke is a silent killer.

Smoking doesn't only affect people, but also the environment. I am fairly certain that every person in this room has seen a cigarette butt lying somewhere, at some point in their lives. Whether it’s on the curb of a neighborhood street, on the sandy beach, or in your favorite park, this litter can be found just about anywhere. Most smokers don’t even believe that a cigarette butt is actually litter, but trust me, it is.

I personally think that breathing clean and pure air is a basic right for any human being. Allowing public smoking is taking away that right, and making the air we breathe in daily possibly harmful to our well-being.

Smoking doesn't only affect people, but also the environment.

Our world today is a world where life is comfortable and easy for many city people. Fast buses, cars, or motorcycles take us to work or to school. Lifts carry us quickly form one floor to another in large buildings, So many people get very little exercise.

What do you need to start jogging? You only need a pair of running shoes, an old pair of jeans or shorts, a sweater, and a little courage. Don’t be embarrased if you meet your neighbour as you return home, hot and tired.  When you begin jogging, start by running some of the way and then walking. Don”t jog too far to begin with and jog slowly, Once you develop a regular jogging programme, you will feel fit and well, and you will be ready to start a busy day feeling fresh and awake.

A natural disaster is a terrible accident, e.g. a great flood , a big fire, or an earthquake. It usually causes great suffering and loss of a large sum of money. The causalities are injured or died. Some people are homeless and need medical care.

Floods occur when the water of rivers, lakes, or stream overflow their banks and pour out into the surrounding land. Floods are caused by many different things. Often heavy rainstorms that last for a brief time can cause a flood. But not all heavy storms are followed by flooding. If the surrounding land is fl at and can absorb the water, no flooding will occur. If, however, the land is hard and rocky, heavy rain cannot be absorbed. Where the banks are low, a river may overflow and flood adjacent lowland.

In many parts of the world floods are caused by tropical storms called hurricanes or typhoons. They bring destructive winds of high speed, torrents of rain, and flooding. When a flood occurs, the destruction to the surrounding land can be severe. Whole villages and towns are sometimes swept away by water pouring swiftly over the land. Railroad tracks and buckles are uprooted from their beds. Highways are washed away.

When a building caught fire, the firemen pitched in to help battle the blaze. Before the pumps were invented, people formed bucket brigades to fight fires. Standing side by side, they formed a human chain from the fire to nearby well or river. They passed buckets of water from hand to hand to be poured on the flames.

The damage of fire did depend a great deal on where it happened. In the country or a small village, only a single house might burn down. But in crowded cities, fire often destroyed whole blocks and neighborhoods before being controlled.

I, Milton Friedman was born on July 31, 1921, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the fourth and last child and fi rst son of Sarah Ethel (Landau) and Jeno Saul Friedman. My parents were born in Carpatho-Ruthenia of the Soviet Union, They emigrated to the U.S. in their teens, meeting in New York. When I was a year old, my parents moved to Rahway, N.J., a small town about 20 miles from New York City.

I was awarded a competitive scholarship to Rutgers University. I graduated from Rutgers in 1932. I financed the rest of my college expenses by the usual mixture of waiting at tables, clerking in a retail store, occasional entrepreneurial ventures, and summer earnings. Shortly, however, I became interested in economics.

In economics, I had the good fortune to be exposed to two remarkable men: Arthur F. Burns and Homer Jones. Arthur Burns shaped my understanding of economics research, introduced me to the highest scientific standards, and became a guiding influence on my subsequent career. Homer Jones introduced me to rigorous economic theory, made economics exciting and relevant, and encouraged me to go on to graduate work. On his recommendation, the Chicago Economics Department offered me a tuition scholarship. As it happened, I was also offered a scholarship by Brown University in Applied Mathematics, but, by that time, I had definitely transferred my primary allegiance to economics. In 1976 I won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for my achievements in the fields of consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy.

A natural disaster is a terrible accident, e.g. a great flood , a big fire, or an earthquake. It usually causes great suffering and loss of a large sum of money. The causalities are injured or died. Some people are homeless and need medical care.

Floods occur when the water of rivers, lakes, or stream overflow their banks and pour out into the surrounding land. Floods are caused by many different things. Often heavy rainstorms that last for a brief time can cause a flood. But not all heavy storms are followed by flooding. If the surrounding land is fl at and can absorb the water, no flooding will occur. If, however, the land is hard and rocky, heavy rain cannot be absorbed. Where the banks are low, a river may overflow and flood adjacent lowland.

In many parts of the world floods are caused by tropical storms called hurricanes or typhoons. They bring destructive winds of high speed, torrents of rain, and flooding. When a flood occurs, the destruction to the surrounding land can be severe. Whole villages and towns are sometimes swept away by water pouring swiftly over the land. Railroad tracks and buckles are uprooted from their beds. Highways are washed away.

When a building caught fire, the firemen pitched in to help battle the blaze. Before the pumps were invented, people formed bucket brigades to fight fires. Standing side by side, they formed a human chain from the fire to nearby well or river. They passed buckets of water from hand to hand to be poured on the flames.

The damage of fire did depend a great deal on where it happened. In the country or a small village, only a single house might burn down. But in crowded cities, fire often destroyed whole blocks and neighborhoods before being controlled.

What can possibly prevent rivers and lakes from overflowing?

The Real Reason Why TV Is Bad for the Kids

"Books are good for children." "TV is bad for children." Everyone seems to know this. In the same way that we know that we should be eating lots of fruits and vegetables and limiting sweets, we all know that kids should spend a lot of time with books and relatively little time with TV.

But why? Can't kids learn just as much from TV as they do from books? There is no doubt that TV can be educational. But one of the unforeseen consequences of TV viewing is reducing how much parents talk with their children. And diminished parent-child interaction can have negative effects on children, especially when they are young.

In a recent study of toddlers and pre-schoolers, we observed mothers and their children while they read books, watched a pro-social TV program, or played with toys. We found TV viewing suppressed both the amount and quality of mother-child communication. That is, moms made relatively few comments to their children while co-viewing. When they did speak, their comments were often unrelated to what their child said, thereby creating an unproductive exchange that could hinder children's opportunity for learning.

Moms who read books to their children, however, not only talked significantly more but also used a very high-quality form of communication that included asking questions, labelling objects, affirming their child, and responding to their child's statements or questions with relevant information. It is important to note that the increased quantity and quality of communication was not due to the fact that moms were reading the words on the pages. Instead, this difference reflected the communication that occurred above and beyond the actual reading that the mother did with the child.

Playing with toys also elicited a high amount of communication, including some high-quality forms of interaction. Although not better than books, toy playing was significantly better than shared TV viewing at encouraging communication.

With these results in mind, let's consider the child who spends a good chunk of the day watching TV. From this perspective, the problem is not necessarily what content, either good or bad, the child has experienced (of course content does make a difference too). Instead, the problem is what this child is missing. Young children who watch lots of TV may be missing out on valuable - even crucial - interactions with parents during a critical point in their development. Parent-child interaction, even with children who can't yet speak, is vital to children's healthy development.

The American Academy of Pediatrics just released their updated TV guidelines for children ages 2 and under. In their statement, they discourage all TV viewing for children in this age group. Part of the justification for their recommendation is that TV viewing reduces parent-child communication.

Some parents may believe that they can't offer their children the kinds of educational experiences that TV provides. But they are wrong. Children learn the best from real people, especially people who are important to them. When parents talk with their children, they not only promote their language development but also teach their children that they are valued and important. Reading books and turning off the TV can facilitate these positive interactions.

Ibn Sina seems to have declined the offers of Mahmud of Ghazni, and proceeded westwards to Urgench in modern Turkmenistan, where the vizier, regarded as a friend of scholars, gave him a small monthly stipend.

It was the dawn of science and technology. Anything seerned possible-even the creation of life itself. Victor Frankenstein becomes obsessed with this idea and works relentlessly to prove his theories; but the glory he imagined becomes a living nightmare- not only for him, but for this friends and family too.

Mary Shelley’s gothic horror story-Franken-stein-was first published in 1818 and has been the inspiration behind numerous stage productions and films-many of which strayed  a log way away from her original masterpiece. Classical Comics presenting a full-colour graphic novel remains true to this classic tale, bringing the original story to life which has never been created before.

This graphic novel is available in two versions : Original text and Quick Text editions. The Original text stays faithful to  Shelley’s original text, while the quick text brings the story up to date by presenting the text into a more simplified style so that the tale is accessible to all readers.

The Quick Text adition will allow you to soak up a general feeling for the characters and locations, while the original text version will help you easily slip into the languange in which the novel was written.

Even if you’re not studying the original, this graphic novel is worth buying. It’s a great story, and should be one that everyone has the chance to read. Now, thanks to this release , even those who don’t particulary like to read too much are given the chance to find this tale and hopefully it may encourange them to search out the original book too.

As with previous Classical Comics, the presentation is first class. The best grade glossy paper really helps to set this graphic novel head and shoulders above the usual comic book releases on the market. Not only that, you also get a pretty comprehensive biography of Shelley ; Mary Shelley’s Family Tree; a feature that explains what life was like in the year of the book’s release; and a brief look on how Frankenstein has been adapted to many different formats over the years.

Kapoposang is one of the largest of the Spermonde Islands, around 70 km northwest of Makassar, South Sulawesi. Kapoposang covers an area of around 50.000 hectares and is inhabited by around 100 families. Several other islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, lie near Kapoposang. The larger ones include Papandangan, Kondongbali, Suranti, and Tambakulu.

Kapoposang and the nearby islands were declared a Nature Tourism Park by the Departement of Forestry in 1999. Diving has been an important activity at Kapoposang. There were so few local divers at the time, and because of the distance from other wellknown diving areas in Indonesia, Kapoposang has basically remained a secret.

The best time to visit Kapoposang is between April and November, when the seas are calm, the weather favorable, and the wind less fierce than in the other months. The trip takes two hours by speedboat; the ocean breezes help to cool your skin in the hot morning sun. As you approach Pulau Kapoposang, you see the deep blue water, which suddenly meets an expanse of coral reefs between extensive shallows with white sands in the seabed. Sea grass also grows lushly near the shore. The sea bed at Kapoposang has a unique composition; near the island are some quite shallow contours, and then suddenly steep underwater cliffs leading to seemingly endless depths. The water is very clear, you can expect underwater visibility of over 15 meters – ideal condition for divers.

Will solar energy ever be a main source of energy for industrial societies? The solar energy is cheaper than any fossil fuell because we can get the abundant source of energy from the sun.

In sunny deserts, the sun’s radiation that reaches the ground can be used to produce electricity for industries and homes. In one of experiment, solar ponds can produce hot water to drive generators.

Unfortunately, we can’t power our homes entirely on sunlight. Solar energy can only be exploited in bright light. Its great potential, therefore, is in countries that have clear skies for most of the year. Most houses, however, are not in the sunniest part of the world. In addition to convert sunlight directly into electricity, solar cells are needed. Although they are very cheap to turn, relatively they are expensive to buy and many people can’t afford them.

Remote sensing is the acquistion of information about an object or phenomenon, without making physical contact with the object. In modern usage, the term generally refers to the use of aerial sensor technology to detect and classify objects on Earth (both on the surface, and in the atmosphere and oceans) by means of propagated signals (e.g. electromagnetic radiation emitted from aircraft or satellites).

There are two main types or remote sensing: passive remote sensing and active remote sensing. Passive sensors detect natural radiation that is emitted or reflected by the object or surrounding area being observed. Reflected sunlight is the most common source of radiation measured by passive censors. Examples of passive remote sensors include film photography, infra-red, charge-coupled devices, and radiometers. Active collection, on the other hand, emits energy in order to scan objects and areas whereupon a sensor then detects and measures the radiation that is reflected or back scattered from the target. RADAR and LIDAR are examples of active remote sensing where the time delay between emission and return is measured, stabilizing the location, height, speed, and direction of an object.

Inner discipline, one that comes from an understanding of the set rules and regulations, is the highest from of the behaviour. Most exellent schools try to instill this with a loving environment. Why, even adults arrive late to meetings, work, etc. Here, we do not agree that late comers should be shut out. They can be given warnings, most of which are enough to make them try their best to reach the school on time later. If this fails, invite their parents to school.

By closing the gates, the school is behaving cruelly, to which we prefer not to expose our children. Every school has a responsibility to implant good educational principle, but it should be in appropriate ways. Good schools create competitive students who can organize themselves effectively in society, so that everyone gets a quality life as a result of ethics and values learned for as long as 12 years.

Children are precious and dependent on the adults for guidance. Understanding them is the key, and to this end, both parents and schools must work hand in hand without playing the blame game.

My parents were born in Carpatho-Ruthenia of the Soviet Union, They emigrated to the U.S. in their teens, meeting in New York. When I was a year old, my parents moved to Rahway, N.J., a small town about 20 miles from New York City.

I was awarded a competitive scholarship to Rutgers University. I graduated from Rutgers in 1932. I financed the rest of my college expenses by the usual mixture of waiting at tables, clerking in a retail store, occasional entrepreneurial ventures, and summer earnings. Shortly, however, I became interested in economics.

In economics, I had the good fortune to be exposed to two remarkable men: Arthur F. Burns and Homer Jones. Arthur Burns shaped my understanding of economics research, introduced me to the highest scientific standards, and became a guiding influence on my subsequent career. Homer Jones introduced me to rigorous economic theory, made economics exciting and relevant, and encouraged me to go on to graduate work. On his recommendation, the Chicago Economics Department offered me a tuition scholarship. As it happened, I was also offered a scholarship by Brown University in Applied Mathematics, but, by that time, I had definitely transferred my primary allegiance to economics. In 1976 I won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for my achievements in the fields of consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy. In 1977, at age 65, I retired from the University of Chicago after teaching there for 30 years.

They can be given warnings, most of which are enough to make them try their best to reach the school on time later. If this fails, invite their parents to school.

By closing the gates, the school is behaving cruelly, to which we prefer not to expose our children. Every school has a responsibility to implant good educational principle, but it should be in appropriate ways. Good schools create competitive students who can organize themselves effectively in society, so that everyone gets a quality life as a result of ethics and values learned for as long as 12 years.

Children are precious and dependent on the adults for guidance. Understanding them is the key, and to this end, both parents and schools must work hand in hand without playing the blame game.

“Children are precious and dependent on the adults for guidance” The underlined word is closest in meaning to .…

Ibn Sina's first appointment was that of physician to the emir, Nuh II, who owed him his recovery from a 15… illness (997). Ibn Sina's chief reward for this service was access to the royal library of the Samanids, well-known patrons of scholarship and scholars.

Meanwhile, he assisted his father in his financial labors, but still found time to write some of his earliest works.

Anybody who is over the age of six knows that there is nowhere safe for skateboarders to skate.This prevents young people from enjoying an active, energetic, and adventurous pastime.

Just watch a local street for a short while and note the steady stream of skaters speeding up and down the footpaths. Toddlers can be trampled on and old ladies can be knocked down as they struggle home  carrying their cat food from supermarkets. Thunderous rattles are heard on our main roads each night as skaters travel without fights and without signs to on coming cars.

Skateboarding is a serious sport that improves young people’s health. It increases fitness, improves balance,and strengthens the joints in kinees and ankless. Although it appears to be a solo sport, when groups practice together and complete to perform stunts or runs they form firm friendships.

Young people should be prevented form be coming overweight couch potatoes.If they are actively involved in skating, they do not smoke, take drugs, or break laws for fun.

Kids will always seek thrills and excitement. They need to pratice their 180’s, 360’s and Ollie’s free from restrictions. We must build skate parks in the suburbs so that street are safe for small children and senior citizens and skaters have spaces where they can race, chase, speed, and soar towards the surt.

The Great Wall of China is the largest and the longest wall to have ever built by humans. Several walls were being built from as early as the 7th century BC by ancient Chinese states; selective stretches were later joined together by Qin Shi Huang (220–206 BC), the first Emperor of China. Little of the Qin wall remains. Later on, many successive dynasties have built and maintained multiple stretches of border walls. The most well-known sections of the wall were built by the Ming dynasty (1368–1644)

Collectively, the Great Wall stretches from Dandong in the east to Lop Lake in the west. The construction materials  were mainly earth, wood, stones, sand, and bricks, used depending on construction era and construction site with different climate and local materials. Its average height ranges from 6 to 7 meters and the tallest part reaches around 14 meters. A comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the walls built by the Ming dynasty measure 8,850 km. This is made up of 6,259 km sections of actual wall, 359 km of trenches and 2,232 km of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers. The entire wall with all of its branches measures out to be 21,196 km.

I, Milton Friedman was born on July 31, 1921, in Brooklyn, N.Y., the fourth and last child and fi rst son of Sarah Ethel (Landau) and Jeno Saul Friedman. My parents were born in Carpatho-Ruthenia of the Soviet Union, They emigrated to the U.S. in their teens, meeting in New York. When I was a year old, my parents moved to Rahway, N.J., a small town about 20 miles from New York City.

I was awarded a competitive scholarship to Rutgers University. I graduated from Rutgers in 1932. I financed the rest of my college expenses by the usual mixture of waiting at tables, clerking in a retail store, occasional entrepreneurial ventures, and summer earnings. Shortly, however, I became interested in economics.

In economics, I had the good fortune to be exposed to two remarkable men: Arthur F. Burns and Homer Jones. Arthur Burns shaped my understanding of economics research, introduced me to the highest scientific standards, and became a guiding influence on my subsequent career. Homer Jones introduced me to rigorous economic theory, made economics exciting and relevant, and encouraged me to go on to graduate work. On his recommendation, the Chicago Economics Department offered me a tuition scholarship. As it happened, I was also offered a scholarship by Brown University in Applied Mathematics, but, by that time, I had definitely transferred my primary allegiance to economics. In 1976 I won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for my achievements in the fields of consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and for his demonstration of the complexity of stabilization policy. In 1977, at age 65, I retired from the University of Chicago after teaching there for 30 years.
