The Rainbow Troops
Laskar Pelangi (English: The Rainbow Troops) is a 2008 Indonesian film adapted from the popular same titled novel by Andrea Hirata. The movie follows a group of 10 schoolchildren and their two inspirational teachers as they struggle with poverty and develop hopes for the future in Gantong Village on the farming and tin mining island of Belitung off the east coast of Sumatra. The film is the highest grossing in Indonesian box office history and won a number of local and international awards.
The movie, set in the 1970s, opens on the first day of the year at a Muhammadiyah elementary school on Belitung. The school needs 10 students but is one short until near the end of the day, when a straggler fills out the ranks for their teachers, Muslimah and Harfan. Muslimah dubs the children “The Rainbow Troops” (sometimes translated as “The Rainbow Warriors”) and the movie traces their development and relationships with the teachers.
The film “reportedly” cost 8 billion rupiah (US$890,000) to make and was a year in production. Most of the child actors in the film are from Belitung, and Producer Mira Lesmana explained that choice by saying: “In my opinion, there won’t be any actors with a deeper connection to the roles than those who were born and lived in Belitong their entire life. The Bangka Belitung Provincial government declared some of the locations used in the film as areas of importance to culture and tourism in 2010, and provincial tourism chief Yan Megawandi said the decision was “primarily” made to help raise funds for the Muhammadiyah elementary school on which the film and novel’s story are centered.
The film’s local and international success fueled a tourism boom on Belitung, with Indonesian airline Garuda reopening direct service from Jakarta to Tanjung Pandan, Belitung’s capital. A provincial government official that month said he had no hard data on the increase in tourist arrivals as a result of the film, but said that nearly all seats on flights to the island from Jakarta were booked in the first week it was open and that most arrivals were asking about information on how to visit the film’s locations.

Are Social Networking Sites Good for Our Society?
The popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Classmates.com more than quadrupled from 2005 to 2009. Many users say the sites are good for our society, but others contend that the dangers of social media outweigh the benefits.
Proponents of social networking sites argue that these online communities promote increased communication with friends and family, familiarize people with valuable computer skills, and allow contact with people from around the world.
Social networking sites allow people to create new relationships and reconnect with friends and family. Increased communication, even online, strengthens relationships. Social networking sites allow for creative expression in a new medium. They provide free messaging, blogging, photo storage, games, event invitations, and many other services to anyone with access to a computer and the Internet.
Social networking sites bring people with common interest together, offer exposure to new ideas from around the world, and lower inhibitions to overcome social anxiety. People who have a difficulty communicating in person are more comfortable interacting via the Internet. Meanwhile the opponents argue that social networking sites expose children to predators, increase vulnerability to computer viruses, lower worker productivity, and promote narcissism and short attention spans. Social networking sites entice people to spend more time online and less time interacting face-to-face. The sites offer many time wasting activities that supplant more productive activities. Teens spend an average of nine hours per week on social networking sites.
Teens growing up with these sites may not be aware that the information they post is public and that photos and text can be retrieved even after deletion. Consequences from over-sharing personal information include vulnerability to sexual or financial predators and lost job opportunities from employers finding embarrassing photos or comments.
Social networking sites have no way to verify that people are who they claim to be, leaving people vulnerable to solicitations from online predators who are able to mask their true identities. In Feb. 2009, MySpace identified 90,000 registered sex offenders with profiles on the site, while Facebook declined to reveal how many were present on its site. Even if the sites agree to remove sex offenders, they cannot identify all of them or stop them from creating new accounts.
As social networking sites become more integrated in our modern culture, some people think that the benefits outweigh any downsides, while others believe the dangers are more pressing than any upsides.

Why is ethanol a good alternative to the fuel which is used now? Firstly, ethanol is based on renewable resources. It is produced from agricultural products, such as sugar beet, sugar cane, potatoes, grains and raw materials such as pulp (smashed wood or plant material), soft wood and waste paper. The raw materials for ethanol are obtained from forests or farm. Trees do not need to be cut down to get ethanol; we can get it from the branches and dead wood.
Secondly, ethanol, because of its alcohol nature, makes the vehicle engines run more efficiently. This means that less fuel is used.
Thirdly, ethanol produces lower emissions of CO and hydocarbons compared to petrol. WALHI research states that more than 5.500.000 tons of CO is emitted by motor engines in a city like Surabaya.

James Watt was born in Greenock on 19 January 1736. His father, also called James, was a ship builder. As a boy Watt went to the local grammar school where he studied classics and mathematics. The young Watt also liked making models.
Eventually, Watt decided to become a maker of mathematical instruments, such as quadrants and compasses. In 1755 he went to London, but only stayed there for two years before moving to Glasgow.
In 1764 Watt made a model of Newcomen steam engine. In this engine, the steam was pushed into a cylinder, then condensed back into water. A year later Watt realized it would be more efficient to condense the steam in another chamber separate from the cylinder. However, it was not until 1769 that Watt patented his new idea, the separate condenser.
In 1775 he went into partnership with Matthew Boulton and began making steam engines which were used for pumping water out of mines. By 1780 the Industrial Revolution was beginning to transform life in Britain and Watt adapted his steam engines to provide a rotary motion so they could be used to power machines in new factories.
In 1781 he used the sun to do this and four years later, steam engines were used to power machines in cotton mills for the first time. Meanwhile, in 1782 Watt invented another major improvement, the double–acting steam engines. In 1788 he invented the fly ball Royal to regulate the speed of steam engines and he made a pressure gauge in 1790.
In 1785 Watt was elected a fellow of the Royal society and he retired from business in 1800. James Watt died on 25 August 1819 and was buried in Birmingham.
