There is something people should know before watching this movie, and that is that takes place from 2002 to 2014. I grew up in that same generation, so as I watched this movie I felt like I was growing up all over. It was increadble to experience that. An even for those who weren’t children growing up in those years will still feel the sense of goingback in time. 

The plot is very simple; what does it mean to grow up, becomes an adult, and live? And as the years goes by, it become apparent that Mason is struggling to find his place in life. Though there few struggles he encounters and somethematic material overall the movie is hilarious and real. From Richard Linklater’s previous films, I’ve noticed that the dialogue all feels real. And it is so well done in this film. 

Speaking of Linklate, I see an Oscar nomination for directing coming his way, I see an Oscar nomination for directing coming his way. As he sat down for Q&A on Boyhood, one of the things he said that struck audience was that he though it was funny that people who saw “Boyhood” told him he improved as a director .this was funny to him because one of the first rules he mad before himiling in 2002 was that he could not change as a director for the sake of the movie to have no continuity errors. The only improvement going on is the superb acting from Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, and (of course) Ellar Coltrane.

Customs officers in Batam have foiled an attempt to smuggle 1,300 matrix tons of crude oil carried by a ship headed to Malaysia, after an hour-long pursuit, during which officers fired warning shots. 

We were informed that this ship [called the Kyosei Maru] was hoarding crude oil while en route to Malaysia. We will find out more regarding how many boats were involved in this operation, Batam customs officer Emi Luwidanto said on Wednesday. 

He said the officers had also arrested the ship's captain, Yohanes Tumbelakas, and 10 crew members, and had examined their nationalities. 

He said the crew had attempted to resist arrest by releasing five dogs to attack officers who had boarded the ship to conduct further inspections.

People score significantly higher on memory tests on rainy, cloudy days than they do on bright, sunny days. 

"This study is the first to show in a real-life setting that weather-induced mood can have a significant influence on people's ability to remember casually observed scenes," scientists from the University of New South Wales School of Psychology report in the Journal of Experimental Psychology. 

And while the psychological world loves to emphasize the upside of staying happy and positive, the finding adds to growing evidence that there's something to be said for bad moods, too. 

The theory is that people tend to be less focused on their surroundings when they're happy and carefree. A positive mood makes us over confident, says team leader Joseph Forgas. We think we understand what's going on, but in reality we're making snap judgments and forget important things. In a negative mood people think things through more thoroughly, he says. 

For their study, researchers tested the memories of 73 randomly selected shoppers at a newspaper and stationery shop in Sydney, Australia. 

Customers were either tested on rainy days or sunny ones. The customers spent, on average, about five minutes in the shop. After they left, they were approached by research assistant who asked the to remember and list of many of the object on the counter as they could remember. 

Shoppers on the cloudy, rainy days listed three times more items than customers tested on sunny days. The "negative mood" participants also recalled more items correctly than incorrectly, a pattern that was completely reversed for participants in a "positive mood state," the researchers say.

The Jakarta administration plans to allow the use of electronic ID (e-ID) cards, locally called e-KTP cards, to access public toilets on the Tanah Abang Skybridge in Central Jakarta, which is to open soon. 

Research and development assistant manager Johan Sufandi of city wastewater management company PD PAL Jaya, which is providing the smart toilets, said the system would allow people easy access to the toilets. The card system will automatically record the number of them who tap their IDs on the door to enter the public toilet facilities. 

Johan said the e-ID card system would be more efficient than using the electronic cash (e-money) cards issued by banks. "Using [e-money] cards from banks would be more complicated and require a large investment, too," Johan said on Monday as quoted by tempo.co. 

City-owned developer PD Sarana Jaya Pembangunan had asked PAL Jaya to provide four smart toilets along the skybridge on behalf of state railway company PT KAI. KAI had requested the city administration to provide additional toilet facilities, because the existing public toilets at Tanah Abang train station would not be enough to accommodate the needs of vendors and customers at the skybridge.

A microwave oven is an electric oven that heats and cooks food by exposing it to electromagnetic radiation in the microwave frequency range. This induces polar molecules in the food to rotate and produce thermal energy in a process known as dielectric heating. Microwave ovens heat foods quickly and efficiently because excitation is fairly uniform in the outer 25-38 mm (1-1.5 inches) of a homogeneous, high water content food item. 

The development of the cavity magnetron in the UK made it possible for the production of electromagnetic waves of a small enough wave length (microwaves). American engine Percy Spencer is generally credited with inventing the modern microwave oven after World War II from radar technology developed during the war. 

Microwave ovens are a common kitchen appliance and are popular for reheating previously cooked food and cooking a variety of food. They are also useful for repaid heating of otherwise slowly prepared foodstuffs, which can easily burn or turn lumpy when cooked in conventional pans, such as hot butter, fats, chocolate or porridge. Unlike conventional ovens, microwave oven usually do not directly brown or caramelize food, since they rarely attain the necessary temperatures to produce Millard reaction. 

Microwave ovens have limited roles in professional cooking, because the boiling-range temperatures of a microwave will not produce the flavorful chemical reactions that frying, browning, or baking at a higher temperature will. However, additional heat sources can be added to microwave ovens.

A. Its prize is expensive. 
B. It makes the food less brown. 
C. It cannot make food caramelized. 
D. It cannot produce flavorful cooking.

Basically, death penalty is based on the belief that the threat of death makes prospective criminals think twice before resorting to some criminal act - such as murder, and makes them totally give up on such crimes. Even though the effectiveness of death penalty as a crime deterrent has been used to gain support for this concept for quite some time now, whether it really deters people from resorting to crime is an issue of contention. A study published in the 'Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology' revealed that 88 percent of 

American criminologists believed that death penalty was not an effective crime deterrent. In fact, approximately 87% of the respondents of this study were of the opinion that abolition of death penalty would have no major impact on crime rates in the country as such. 

On the contrary, several criminologists are of the opinion that the deterrent effect of punishment in itself is one of the several factors which makes a person indulge in crime, and doing away with it can help us bring down the crime rate by a significant extent. The example of Canada wherein the homicide rate declined after abolition of death penalty in 1976 is often used by these people to support their opinion. One has to also give a thought to the fact that those criminals who resort to a great deal of planning to commit some crime will never get affected by the threat of being caught and convicted. Similar would be the case when it comes to crimes by mentally affected people or children for whom death penalty will seldom act as a deterrent.

Celestial Bodies 

Astronomy is the study of celestial bodies such as planets, stars and galaxies. It began in ancient times, thousands of years ago, when people began making simple observations of the sun and moon. Early astronomers lacked equipment, so it was impossible for them to know what was in the endless sky. They could only imagine what was out there. 

These ancient people were curious about day and night, and the sun, moon and stars. They began to notice that the sun rose every morning in the east, moved across the sky during the day and set in the west. They also saw that the moon and the stars continually changed their position in the night sky. 

Over a number of years, early astronomers realized that there was a pattern to the movement of the sun, moon and stars. Through detailed recording of this movement they determined that the pattern repeated every 365.25 days. It is from this pattern that we get the number of days in each year. It is impossible to have years that are exactly 365.25 days. So, we have a 365 day year and add an extra day for every four years to complete the cycle. 

Early astronomers also saw five bright planets in the sky. These planets are called Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Like the sun, moon and stars, early astronomers saw they moved in the sky. 

At first all astronomers thought that everything moved around the Earth, which they said remained stationary. It was not until the 16th century that a polish astronomer called Nicolas Copernicus began to question this theory. He published his own theoretical study which suggested that the earth and all other planets rotated around a stationary sun. 

In 1609, an Italian astronomer called Galileo Galilei used a new instrument called a telescope to look into the heavens. The telescope made it possible for him to discover provided evidence to prove that Copernicus’ theory was right. The sun was indeed the centre of motion in the universe and the Earth and all the other planets revolved around it. The invention of the telescope was very important for astronomers. Now, they could look deeper into the sky and find answers to the questions that had puzzled people for thousands of years. 

The telescope that Galileo used was a small refracting telescope that had a magnification of 20 times. In his day, Galileo was a leader, not only in the use of the telescope, but also in its development. Later, with the use of much more powerful apparatus the outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Plato were discovered. Other members of the solar system were also discovered ranging in size from the gigantic Jupiter to microscopic particles of dust. 

Today, astronomers are able to use huge telescope many times more powerful than the early telescopes. In 1990, it was even possible to send a telescope into space. The Hubble Space Telescope Orbits Earth at a height of around 600 km. It is so powerful that it can find material that lies billions of light years away from Earth. Spaceships, like the Voyager 2, have also been used to gather information from distant parts of the Solar System.

Once upon a time, there was a king who ruled in Teberu Lombok, who had a beautiful daughter called Puteri Mandalika.

They were Prince Bumbang, Prince Aryo Johor, Prince Singa Trasak, Prince Daria Loka, Prince Gunung Piring and Prince Bungsu. Each prince wanted to win the heart of Puteri Mandalika. 

Her father, the king of Teberu, was very confused and did not know what to do. If he chose one prince instead of another then it would create jealousy and there could be war against his kingdom.

Everybody was looking at Puteri Mandalika, waiting for her announcement.

Volcanic eruptions are more than just lava flows. Many events happen including earthquakes, gas expelling, rocks being forced out and ash shooting up into the air. Did you know there is also something called a dirty thunderstorm associated with volcanoes? A dirty thunderstorm is described as the electrical discharges of lightning that occur during a volcanic eruption. 

This exceptional type of lightning is a unique type of electrical discharge that comes from volcanic plumes. It can be as short as 3 feet (1 meter) and last very briefly. Experts believe the lightning is sparked off by infinite amounts of small fragments of ice that bang into one another inside the turbulent thundercloud. Each time the ice fragments collide with each other, they generate static electricity that eventually grows large enough to create a massive spark which then emitted as the lightning. 

Particles colliding into one another are what create the lightning. Rock and ash are also a part of the ingredients that make up the recipe for a dirty thunderstorm. Dirty thunderstorms, while fascinating to watch, are very dangerous.

Online motorcycle taxis have advantages and disadvantages that we must know before using these services. The advantages of online motorcycle taxi are three services provided by GoJek. The first is the Instant Courier service, which is a freight forwarding service. Then there are also Shopping services, so customers can ask motorcycle taxi drivers to shop. And, the last is the standard services of motorcycle taxi, namely transport or services to deliver customers to their destination. All of these services can be accessed and ordered through the application from the customer's smartphone. This is where the convenience of being given a motorcycle taxi to its customers. 

Through this ordering application, customers can determine the pickup and delivery place, and the rates that customers need to pay for this service will appear. The set rates are also not too different from the general motorcycle taxi tariff. With the display of direct rates when ordering, customers will be easier and know how much they have to prepare. 

While the shortcomings of online motorcycle taxis are in the drivers and passengers. If from the passenger side, it is possible for passengers to continue to create new e-mails with new numbers to be registered while there is a referral system that gets IDR 50,000 credit. In addition, these application-based ojek drivers make fictitious orders by pretending to be passengers who order orders while acting as ojek drivers who receive the order. The lack in terms of drivers is the practice of fictitious orders. They can manipulate passengers so they can get more wages without having to replace their destination passengers. If this continues, online motorcycle taxis can go bankrupt because of fraud between the driver and the passenger.

ESSAY 

Scorpions typically eat insects, but their diet can be extremely variable - another key to their survival in so many harsh locales. When food is scarce, scorpion have an amazing ability to slow their metabolisms to as little as one third the typical rate for arthropods. This technique enables several species to use little oxygen and survive on as little as a single insect per year. Yet, even with lowered metabolism, scorpions have the ability to spring quickly to the hunt when opportunity arises a gift that many hibernating species lack. 

Such survival skills allow scorpions to live in the planet’s toughest environments. Researchers have even frozen scorpions overnight, only to put them in the sun the next day and watch them thaw out and crawl away. However, scorpions have difficulty with, living without soil.

The tiger (panthera tigris) is the largest cat species, reaching a total body length of up to 3.38 m (11.1 ft) over curves and exceptionally weighing up to 388.7 kg (857 lb) in the wild. Its most recognisable feature is a pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. The species is classified in the genus panthera with the lion, leopard, jaguar and snow leopard. Tigers are apex predators, primarily preying on ungulates such as deer and bovids. They are territorial and generally solitary but social animals, often requiring large contiguous areas of habitat that support their prey requirements. This, coupled with the fact that they are indigenous to some of the more densely populated places on earth, has caused significant conflicts with humans. 

Tigers once ranged widely across asia, from turkey in the west to the eastern coast of russia. Over the past 100 years, they have lost 93% of their historic range, and have been extirpated from southwest and central asia, from the islands of java and bali, and from large areas of southeast and eastern asia.

My wonderful experience at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha 

In December 2006, I went to Doha to participate in the 2006 Asian Games taking part in the Bach Volley Ball Championship. We prepared for a long time, training hard and fighting for approval of our participation. Nothing was easy. My partner, clear, my coach, King, and I were aiming to get into the top 8 at the Asian Games. 

Unfortunately, I sprained my ankle one week before departure, which frustrated me beyond belief. I had physiotherapy every day following the injury, and tried to recover as quickly as possible. Of course, the ankle could not heal completely in a few days, so I had no choice but to just try my best and have my ankle taped when I played in matches. 

We played against a team from Thailand, Mongolia, and Malaysia. The most difficult and important match was that against the Malaysian Team. We played well for the match and tried our very best. But finally we lost to them and ranked 9. It was so close. We nearly reached our goal - to be among the first 8 teams. 

14. According to the writer. ... team was difficult to beat. 
15. What happen with the writer when he wanted to play in matches?
