A farmer came across a bird with a broken wing. He picked it up, took it home and looked after it lovingly, even though his wife complained bitterly about his wasting too much time on the creature.

After some time, the wing mended and, because the bird did not want the farmer to have kept on arguing with his wife all the time, it decided to go back to its nest.

When the farmer discovered that the bird was gone, he was so upset that he went out to look for it. Eventually, he found it again, and was greeted happily by the whole family of the bird. As a sign of their thanks for his care and attention, the birds gave him a little box, and told him not to open it until he got home.

To his surprise, the farmer found the box full of precious stones. When his wife saw them, she decided that she too deserved a reward, and she went to see the birds. The birds gave her a little casket; but this one was full of devils. The devils jumped on her as soon as she opened the casket and chased her away.

Left alone, the farmer went to live near his friend, the bird. There he built a hut of perfumed wood; and the birds decorated it with flowers of every kind.

Last week I took my five-year old son, Willy, to a musical instrument store in my hometown. I wanted to buy him a set of junior drum because his drum teacher advised me to buy him one. Willy likes listening to music very much. He also likes asking me everything he wants to know. Even his questions sometimes seem precocious for a boy of his age. He is very inquisitive.

We went there by car. On the way, we saw a policeman standing near a traffic light regulating the passing cars and other vehicles. He blew his whistle now and then.

Seeing the policeman blowing his whistle, Willy asked me at once, “Dad, why is the policeman using a whistle, not a drum?”

Hearing his unexpected question I answered reluctantly, “Because he is not Phil Collins!”

I usually woke up at 8 a.m. and went to the press center to check the daily schedule of briefings and press conferences, usually held by the United Nations officials or disaster mitigation team chief, Alwi Shihab.

It was challenging to visit different refugee camps to find soft stories, human interest stories. Then, I went back to the press center in between to cover the press conferences of the day.

It was heart breaking when I saw these survivors fight for food and secondhand clothing, which they said were limited and inadequate. Emerging to a glaring, full noon, it was time to go back to the press center to write stories and race against time, always fearing that the internet connection would come crashing down.

And after everything was done, only then I remembered to eat. Most times, I only ate once a day because you always had to rush and it was difficult to find food. You had to travel quite far, about a 30-to 45- minute trip by car to find fresh food.

Contoh Teks Descriptive

 Text 1

I have an alarm clock that I put on the table near my bed. It is the clock which usually helps to wake me up in the morning to do daily morning activities. Sometimes I also set it for my naps. It is important for me. Perhaps I will often wake up late if I don1t have it.

My alarm clock is very unique in appearance. The body is round in a medium size. It has glossy brownish yellow color. It is made of metals and plastics. The clock has three hands. The two, having black and green colors, indicate the hour and minutes. They move slowly. The other, which has a red color, shows the seconds. Therefore it runs the fastest of all. Twelve numbers which have black color are well-arranged in a circle on the margin of the round clock. Under the centre, there is a small hole where some small numbers can be moved by spinning a specific knob on the back.  There are other two knobs on the back that function to adjust the hands at the right positions.

Above the main body, there are two bells made of bronze. They are held by two stems of metal fastened to the body. A stick handle connects the two bells. There is also a small pin right on the top of the body between the two bells. It functions to stop the bell ringing. Besides the pin there is a small hammer to beat the bells, making rings.

The clock is very strong. Although I have dropped it several times, it still functions well. It really helps me wake up at the right time and lets me know the present time.

PHILIPPINES : At least nine people were killed and dozens were injured when the Philippines security forces clashed with dozens of slum dwellers who resisted the tearing down of their homes in the northern province, a police commander said Tuesday.

Raul Gonzales, the police chief in the northern Cordillera area, said, that the soldiers and police officers traded gunfire with dozens of people who are illegally occupying the private land in Kalinga province.

“Our team was ambushed on their way to the community to be demolished,” said Gonzales . He added that the security only defended themselves after the residents dug foxholes and opened fire with automatic rifles.

“Nine people were killed and dozens were wounded, including 10 police officers

during almost 10 hours of fighting. We even had to evacuate some of our officers who

needed surgery to get the bullets from their bodies.”-Reuters

Snakes are reptiles. These cold-blooded creatures belong to the same group as lizards. Snakes have no legs. Their skin is glossy to reduce friction as the snakes slither along the ground.

Snakes often sun bake on rocks in the warm weather. This is because they are cold blooded. They need the sun’s warmth to heat their body up. Most snakes live in the country. Some types of snakes live in trees, some live in the water, but most live on the ground in thick, long grass and in old logs.

Elephants are the largest land animals alive today. These animals have special body characteristics, among them are tusks and trunk.

Elephants’ tusks are made of a hard, white substance like bone. When an elephant is angry, its tusk can be very dangerous. The tusks of an elephant are actually its front teeth. People pay a lot of money for the ivory of an elephant’s tusk. The ivory from the tusks is made into many beautiful things.

The trunk of an elephant is a fusion of the nose and upper lip. An elephant uses    its trunk in many ways. It pulls up trees with its trunk when it wants to make a path through the jungle. It also uses its trunk to get water. The trunk can hold a lot of water, as an elephant needs to drink three hundreds pints of water every day.

Ant-eaters are perhaps the most curious looking animals. Their long head and snout look like tubes and they have no teeth at all. Their front legs are very strong and armed with heavy curved claws with which they break open the nets of ants and termites and then, when the insects rush out, the ant eaters use their long, sticky tongues to lick them up at great speed. True ant-eaters are found in the swamps and forests of Central and South America. Scaly ant-eaters or pangolins are found in Africa and tropical Asia.

Insect-eating animals are sometimes called ant-eaters, although they actually belong to other groups of animals. One of them is the ant-bear, which lives on the plains of South and Central America. It has long, erect ears, but short blunt claws, and .most hairless tail and is yellow brown in color. Unlike the true ant-eaters, it has small teeth.

Text 1

Is it important to know what your kids are watching? Of course yes. Television can expose things you have tried to protect them from, especially violence, pornography, consumerism, etc.

A study demonstrated that spending too much time on watching TV during the day or at bedtime often causes bedtime disruption, stress, and short of sleep duration.

Another research found that there is a significant relationship between the amount of time spent for watching television during adolescence and early adulthood, and the possibility of being aggressive.

Meanwhile, many studies have identified a relationship between kids who watch TV a lot and being inactive and overweight.

Considering some facts mentioned above, protect your children with the following tips:

I. Limit television viewing to 1-2 hours each day.

2. Do not allow your children to have a TV set in their bedrooms.

3. Review the rating of TV shows that your children watch.

4. Watch television with your children and discuss what is happening in the show.

To Whom it may concern,

 

“In donesian Idol” is an annual Indonesian televised singing competition which has been airing on RCTI. Part of the Idol franchise, ‘it originated from the British reality program “Pop Idol” “Indonesian Idol” is a combination of a reality show and a talent search show. Unfortunately, instead of giving the opportunity to anyone who has talent and capable to be promoted as an idol, I find some weaknesses in this program.

Sometimes, the winner is not guaranteed to have a quality of a good singer because the winner is merely determined by public voting by phone and sms. Most of these voters do not consider the jury‘s comments on the contestant’s performance because they would prefer focusing on the contestant’s physical appearance and personality rather than his/her singing quality.

As a consequence, after the competition is over, only few of the winners get the chance to be professional singers. Why is it so? Because they don’t have great skills to be professional singers. Furthermore, most of them only have little experience in the show business, while being a professional  singers   need a long process and time.

My suggestion is that “Indonesian Idol” should not determine the winner based on the contestant’s. The singing quality of each contestant should be the first priority.

Yours truly,

In Australia there are three levels of government, the federal government, state government and local governments. All of these levels of government are necessary. This is so for a number of reasons.

First, the federal government is necessary for the big things. They keep the economy in order and look after things like defense.

Similarly, the state governments look after the middle sized things. For example, they look after law and order, preventing things like vandalism in schools.

Finally, local governments look after the small things. They look after things like collecting rubbish, otherwise everyone would have diseases.

Thus, for the reason above we can conclude that the three levels of government are necessary.

Nuclear power is generated by using uranium, which is a metal mined in various parts of the world.  The first large-scale nuclear power station was opened at Calder Hall in Cambria, England, in 1956.

Some military ships and submarines have nuclear power plant for engines. Nuclear power produces around 11% of the world’s energy needed, and produces huge amounts of energy. It causes no pollution as you’d get when burning fossil fuels.

The advantages of nuclear is as follows:

1. It costs about the same as coal, so it’s not expensive to make.

2. It doesn’t produce smoke or carbon dioxide, so it doesn’t contribute to the greenhouse effect.

3. It produces huge amounts of energy from small amount of uranium.

4. It produces small amounts of waste.

5. It is reliable.

On the other hand, nuclear power is very, very dangerous. It must be sealed up and buried for many years to allow the radioactivity to die away. Furthermore, although it is reliable, a lot of money has to be spent on safety because if it does go wrong, a nuclear accident can be a major disaster.

People are increasingly concerned about this. In the 1990′s nuclear power was the fastest growing source of power in many parts of the world. In 2005, it was the 2nd Slowest  growing.

There are a lot of discussions as to whether children should be given homework or not. Some people claim that children do enough work in school already. They also argue that children have hobbies that they want to do after school, such as sports or music. A further point they make is that a lot of homework is pointless and doesn’t help the child learn at all.

However, there are also strong arguments against this point of view. Parents and teachers argue that it is important to find out whether children can work on their own without the support from the teacher. They say that the evening is a good time for children to sit down and think about what they have learned in school.

Furthermore they claim that the school day is too short to get anything done that needs doing and it makes sense to send home tasks like independent reading or further writing tasks that don’t need teacher’s support.

On balance, I think that some homework is a good idea but that it should only given at the weekend when children have more time.

There has been a great deal of discussion on the problem of abortion in this country. The  discussion includes: “Is abortion legal or illegal? Is abortion morally justified or not?”

On one hand, abortion is one of the methods of birth control. When a country faces the problems of population explosion, the government should find methods to solve it. But since no method of contraception is one hundred percent effective and successful, abortion becomes  the only way out when prevention fails.

On the other hand, abortion may cause many negative effects for women’s health.

Women risk their health and lives in bearing the operation and its consequences. The most common complications are inflammation, interruption of menstrual patterns, infertility, endometriosis, myoma of the uterus and many other kinds of ovary illness.

So far, abortions have become a dilemma for countries with a large number of citizens. On one hand, it can control the birth rate, but on the other hand, it brings terrible consequences, especially for women`s health.

The OST (Original Soundtrack) of Brownies

          “Bisa Saja” is chosen as the first single of the album and theme song of Brownies, since the lyric reflects the story in the movie.

When Hanung Bramantyo, the director, and Dewa Budjana of Gigi chatted, Budjana expressed his interest in making a soundtrack album. Then, he recommended a few of Gigi’s songs which the producer accepted because of the combination they created with the movie.

Since Gigi can provide a variety of colors to add all kinds of musical nuances to enrich the movie, the producer deemed it unnecessary to find other musicians to complete the OST of Brownies.

It’s always fun to have piece of brownies in your mouth. However, having it in your stereo set is more entertaining. No movie is perfect without musical score, and the OST of Brownies has proved it excellently.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

(Adventure, 157 minutes)

 

Starring: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Bill Nighy.

Directed by: Gore Verbinski.

Released by: Walt Disney Pictures.

 

In this sequel to the 2003 highly successful film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, you can see everyone’s favourite scoundrel, Captain Jack Sparrow (the brilliant Johny Depp) trying to weasel out of paying a blood debt owed to the mythical Davy Jones, the captain of the otherworldly ship The Flying Dutchman.

Time is being his biggest enemy, and Sparrow pulls every trick he knows to find a way to escape the 100 years of servitude owed to Davy Jones. His old friends, Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom), are once again sucked into Sparrow’s misadventures.

The success of the first sequel relied on the simple thrill ride charm of a classic swashbuckler. Unfortunately, this second sequel over extends that charm without adding anything new other than a long, contrived and rather unnecessary plot twist.

The only true pleasurable aspect of this film is Deep’s reprise of Sparrow, which never fails to generate laughs. Without Deep, this film would have simply drowned in an ocean of redundancy.

 

Selamat Belaja! Good luck!
