Once, there was a kingdom in Priangan Land. Lived a happy family. They were a father in form of dog,his name is Tumang, a mother which was called is Dayang Sumbi, and a child which was called Sangkuriang.

One day, Dayang Sumbi asked her son to go hunting with his lovely dog, Tumang. After hunting all day, Sangkuriang began desperate and worried because he hunted no deer. Then he thought to shot his own dog. Then he took the dog liver and carried home.

Soon Dayang Sumbi found out that it was not deer lever but Tumang's, his own dog. So, She was very angry and hit Sangkuriang's head. In that incident, Sangkuriang got wounded and scar then cast away from their home.

Years go bye, Sangkuriang had travel many places and finally arrived at a village. He met a beautiful woman and felt in love with her. When they were discussing their wedding plans, The woman looked at the wound in Sangkuriang's head. It matched to her son's wound who had left severall years earlier. Soon she realized that she felt in love with her own son.

She couldn't marry him but how to say it. Then, she found the way. She needed a lake and a boat for celebrating their wedding day. Sangkuriang had to make them in one night. He built a lake. With a dawn just moment away and the boat was almost complete. Dayang Sumbi had to stop it. Then, she lit up the eastern horizon with flashes of light. It made the cock crowed for a new day.

Sangkuriang failed to marry her. She was very angry and kicked the boat. It felt over and became the mountain of Tangkuban Perahu Bandung.

Why was Dayang Sumbi very angry and hit Sangkuriang’s head?

These are amazing advances, but while all this scientific back-slapping is going on, the dark cloud on the horizon is the emerging Ebola epidemic in West Africa and the warning undercurrent that comes with it. At the time of writing at least 7000 people have been infected and half of those have died. The CDC in America also estimate that, because the level of reporting is so poor, the numbers can, in all likelihood , be doubled or even tripled. And because the rates of infection appear to be growing exponentially, tens of thousands, or even millions , might ultimately be affected.

To put the scale of the present situation into perspective, since the first recorded case of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo 38 years ago there have been fewer than 2,500 deaths documented in total. So this single present outbreak is already three times larger than the entire Ebola death toll ever. It’s also no longer just an African problem. The West has had its own wake-up call this week as the US and Spain, countries previously regarded as immune to the threat thanks to modern Medicine , have reported imported cases of the condition and , despite strict infection-control guidelines and practices, onward transmissions of Ebola on their home soil.

What is remarkable though is that, while Ebola is terrifying and dramatic in its impact when it causes an outbreak, it appears to be a relatively easy agent to fight. Experimental vaccines tested so far on animals have been impressively effective, protecting against even injection of the live Ebola virus. But because they are at a test stage, these agents, which will be critical if we’re to nip this outbreak in the bud,are nowhere near ready for mass production. Trials are only now getting underway of human versions of the vaccines in Oxford , UK, and the US. “Way too late,” many are saying, to prevent the inevitable.

So why is it that, nearly 40 years after Ebola first surfaced , the world finds itself in a state of panic, and up to ten thousand people are dead, owing to a bug that’s probably preventable thanks to scientific research done decades ago? The answer is that Ebola was regarded as someone else’s problem. It was a tropical disease of low importance and (presumedto be) constrained by geography and climate to a part of the world that held little economic interest to the rest of us. But therein lies a salutary lesson: because if even a tiny fraction - less than 1% - of what the present outbreak is now costing the world in terms of lost productivity, humanitarian aid and human lives lost had been spent 20 years ago to develop an Ebola vaccine, we probably wouldn’t be in this position now. It’s easy to dismiss tropical diseases as an issue that won’t affect the West, but the present situation is a warning shot across our bows that we ignore at our peril.

As spring arrives, albeit quite late this year for many of us, we notice the changing of seasons by the weather, but also by a host of natural events. Depending on where you live, the crocuses may poke through the snow the killdeer may be back, or the cherry trees may bloom. There is an orderly sequence of events that seem to occur, with various spring flowers appearing in order, red maple buds bursting into new leaves, or the old lilac by the barn scenting the air. This seasonal cycle of natural phenomena is called phenology. Global climate change appears to be interfering with the phenology of many species, at the very heart of species interactions.

In temperate regions like the northern half of the United States , there is comparatively little biological activity in winter. Most plants are dormant , and so are the insects feeding on them. In turn , animals that rely on these Insects , such as bats and birds, are hibernating or spending the cold months in more southerly locations. Ectotherms like reptiles and amphibians, which take their body warmth from their environment , also have active phases tied to the seasons. This long winter period constrains all the growing, breeding, and dispersing activities that plants and animals do to a short favorable window. That’s what makes spring so vibrant, with plants flowering and putting on new growth, insects emerging and breeding, and birds flying back to take advantage of this short-lived bounty. The onsets of each of these activities add up to so many phenological markers.

Different organisms respond to different cues to initiate seasonal activities. Many plants will start growing leaves again after a set period of dormancy, which very roughly dictates the leaf-out window. Cue that more precisely determine when the buds break can be soil temperature, air temperature, or water availability. Similarly, temperature cues can promote the beginning of insect activity. Day length itself can be the operative trigger for some seasonal events. It is only when there are a sufficient number of daylight hours that reproductive hormones will be produced in many bird species.

The most energy-demanding period in the life of most animals is when they reproduce. For that reason , it is to their advantage to coincide breeding (and for many, the raising of young) during a period when food is most abundant. Caterpillars should hatch just as the young tender leaves of oak tree emerge, before they harden and become less nutritious. Breeding songbirds need to time the hatching of their young just during that peak in caterpillar activity, so they can take advantage of this rich source of protein to feed their offspring. Many species have evolved to exploit peaks in resource availability, so all these seemingly independent phenological events are indeed part of a complex web of precise interactions. Disruptions in seasonal events can have profound effects on ecosystems. (http://environment.about.com/)

Passage 2 

The largest of the world’s 17 penguin species, emperor penguins stand

nearly four feet and weigh up to 90 pounds. These sea birds never set

foot on dry land. (1) An estimated 200,000 breeding pairs live in about

40 penguin colonies scattered along the coasts of Antarctica. (2) Their

waterproofed feathers, flipper-like wings, and streamlined bodies make

them excellent swimmers and divers. On ice they can travel distances

up to 50 miles by “tobogganing”—gliding on their stomachs while

pushing with their wings and feet.

 

(3) Emperor penguins breed during the Antarctic winter in some

of the world’s most severe weather conditions (temperatures of –80 F

and winds up to 112 miles per hour). Breeding during the winter

allows chicks to mature in midsummer when food is plentiful. After the

female lays a single egg, the male holds it in a fold of skin near his feet

for a two-month incubation period.

During this time he huddles with other males to keep warm.

(4) The male moves very little and does not eat, usually losing up to a third of his body weight.

Meanwhile the females go to sea and dive for fish so that when

they return they can feed and care for the newly hatched chicks.

After the male restores his body weight, both parents take turns caring

for their young.

 

The world’s emperor penguin population declined in the last 50 years

due to a period of warming ocean temperatures. Warm water shrinks

ice cover and reduces the population of krill—a small crustacean that

is the emperor penguin’s staple food. Today the emperor penguin population

has stabilized, but warming trends could again threaten this magnificent

sea bird.

penguin?
