Sugoi Japan

Japan, known as the ‘land of the rising sun’, is located on East Asia. The Japan has more than 6600 islands but most of the islands are small and people 20150930_091629.jpgrarely occupy the place because most of them are very old. Furthermore, Japan has 4 main islands and they are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu. Tokyo is the capital city of Japan and it is located on Honshu Island. 

Japan’s has 4 season namely spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Most of the tourists and traveler went to Japan when spring and autumn because at that time Japan has the most beautiful scenery than the other countries. In spring, cherry blossom, also known as ‘Sakura’, started to bloom. The fascinating pink flower color Japan’s cities and village. You should come to Japan when it is spring and autumn and you will not regret it.

Yomise(Yatai)

Japan has their own traditional festive that is called Japanese Festival, also known as ‘Matsuri’ (). The festival is always located near the shrine. Japanese people does not celebrate Lunar New Year, unlike most people in East Asia. In matsuri, people can always find matsuri booths that sells souvenirs, and foods, such as cotton candy, takoyaki, candy apple and many more, and there are also booths for games, such as goldfish-scooping, snipping, etc. Usually, people went to festival wearing yukata and kimono.

The most popular sports in Japan is baseball, also known as ‘yakyu’ (). Baseball is not only played by the professional, but also played by the high schooler. The Japanese national baseball team is also considered as the world strongest team. Furthermore, many Japanese people have gone to Major League Baseball even though Japan has their own official league known as Nippon Professional.

Nowadays, Japan TV animation, or ‘anime’, is also popular in Japan and other countries. Anime is the abbreviation of animation. Before, anime was regarded childish but now adults also watch anime. Because many people were interested in anime, they went to Japan to study how to make an anime. Is Japan’s culture wonderful?

The Teacher’s Room

Image_df56090The place where the teachers do their things is in the teacher’s room. As I walk inside the teacher’s room, I feel comfortable because the teachers are nice and fun. I often talk to the teacher about the materials that are given to us, the trending topic in social media, and funny jokes. The teachers usually eat, drink, listen to songs, make tests and homework, and gossip about the students. To have cool, fun and exciting teacher, wouldn’t it be great?

When I went into the teacher’s room, the air feels cold and calming. It really has a nice atmosphere. The floor there is very clean, differ with the floor inside the classroom. The teacher maintain cleanliness so that the office boy will not be very tired to clean. Stickers were attached on the wall to make the teacher’s room more colorful and bright. There’s also a cross because our school is a catholic school. The schedules in the teacher’s room that are attached to the wall of the teacher’s room is to make the teacher not late into the class to be taught.

At the morning, I must put my smartphone inside the HP box. The HP box were put in the teacher’s room so that it would be safe. If I need to use the smartphone, I should ask permission to my homeroom teacher or the teacher there.

There’s a printer which the teacher use for printing documents and for teaching purposes. When I need a paper, I can ask for paper to the teacher nearby easily and they will give the paper to me. There’s also many ‘lost and found’ things, which were being put under the Aqua gallon, that were found by the teachers.

There are lots of more things to describe about the teacher’s room and the teachers in JPS, like how hard they work to make the students realize their condition, making an extra classes so that the students will be promoted to the next grade, etc. Our JPS school teacher and teacher’s room looks amazing and fascinating right?

 

My Wonderful Fieldtrip | Fieldtrip indah saya

Have you ever went to an exciting place which everyone can play and learn? I know the best place for that. On April 27 2017, my friends, teachers, and I went to Kampung Gajah Wonderland, which located on Lembang. I really had fun there! By reading this article, you will know the condition on the way to get there, the fascinating creatures and the incredible rides.

Pernahkah Anda pergi ke tempat yang menyenangkan dimana setiap orang bisa bermain dan belajar? Aku tahu tempat terbaik untuk itu. Pada tanggal 27 April 2017, teman-teman, guru, dan aku pergi ke Kampung Gajah Wonderland, yang terletak di Lembang. Aku benar-benar bersenang-senang disana! Dengan membaca artikel ini, Anda akan tahu kondisi dalam perjalanan menuju ke sana, makhluk yang mempesona dan wahana yang luar biasa.

  • On the way to get there | Di perjalanan menuju ke sana

We left the school at around 06 50 and arrived at around 11 20. On the way to get there, there were traffic jam so we got there really late, but it was a fun because on the bus, we took selfies with our teacher and friends, read comics, play games, eat snacks, listening to songs, and chatting with our teacher and friends. We used 2 bus because the total of students that went there are 108.

Kami meninggalkan sekolah sekitar pukul 06.50 dan tiba sekitar pukul 11.20. Dalam perjalanan menuju ke sana, ada kemacetan sehingga kami sampai di sana sangat terlambat, tapi menyenangkan karena di dalam bus, kami selfie bersama guru dan teman kami, membaca komik, bermain game, makan makanan ringan, mendengarkan lagu, dan untitled.pngmengobrol dengan guru dan teman kami. Kami menggunakan 2 bus karena total siswa yang pergi ke sana adalah 108 orang.

When we went to rest area to go to toilet, many busses gathered and park their bus. I was sitting beside the window, reading a comic that my friend has brought. When I looked to see the scenery outside, I saw a person wrote bad words to K-pop fans and they show it to us. When we saw it, my friends and I got angry. It was an unpleasant memory.

Ketika kami pergi ke tempat istirahat untuk pergi ke toilet, banyak bus yang berkumpul dan memarkir. Aku duduk di samping jendela, membaca komik yang dibawa temanku. Ketika saya melihat pemandangan di luar, saya melihat seseorang menulis kata-kata buruk untuk penggemar K-pop dan mereka menunjukkannya kepada kita. Ketika kami melihatnya, teman-temanku dan aku marah. Itu adalah kenangan yang tidak menyenangkan.
  • The Minizoo there | Minizoo disana

After we’ve arrived at Kampung Gajah, we make 3 lines so that we could get the ticket t20170427_115040o go inside. We immediately enter the minizoo after we got the ticket. We fed the rabbits, marmots, and monkeys. with the carrots and vegetables given to us. Furthermore, we can see peacocks, birds, fish, otter, and many more. All of the student took picture, and some make a vlog because we have tasks that have been assigned by the teachers.

Setelah sampai di Kampung Gajah, kami membuat 3 jalur sehingga kami bisa mendapatkan tiket masuk. Kami langsung masuk ke kebun binatang yang kecil setelah kami mendapat tiketnya. Kami memberi makan kelinci, marmut, dan monyet. Dengan wortel dan sayuran yang diberikan kepada kita. Selanjutnya, kita bisa melihat burung merak, burung, ikan, berang-berang, dan masih banyak lagi. Semua siswa mengambil gambar, dan beberapa membuat vlog karena kita memiliki tugas yang telah diberikan oleh para guru.

  • Attractive rides that we played |Wahana menarik yang kami mainkan

The teacher gave us free time so that we could play the rides that are available there. Firstly, we rode ‘Tubby’ as the first ride because it was the most closest ride from the minizoo. The ‘Tubby’ was really1493276939070s fun, even though it seems not attractive at all. Next, we played the ‘Fantastic Car’. It has a big statue in the back that makes the car more interesting. We rode the car that has the iron man statue in the back.

Guru-guru memberi kami waktu luang sehingga kami bisa bermain wahana yang tersedia di sana. Pertama, kami mengendarai ‘Tubby’ sebagai tumpangan pertama karena merupakan perjalanan paling dekat dari minizoo. ‘Tubby’ sangat menyenangkan, meski tampaknya tidak menarik sama sekali. Selanjutnya, kami memainkan ‘Fantastic Car’. ‘Fantastic Car’ memiliki patung besar di belakang yang membuat mobil lebih menarik. Kami mengendarai mobil yang memiliki Iron man di belakang.

After we rode ‘Fantastic Car’, my friends and I explored the rides that are suitable for us. After 1 hour searching, we found ‘Go Kart’ ride. It was a very fun ride which make me feel that I’m a profesional driver. After we played ‘Go Kart’, we took pictures there.

Setelah kami mengendarai ‘Fantastic Car’, teman-teman dan saya menjelajah wahana yang sesuai untuk kami. Setelah 1 jam mencari, kami menemukan ‘Go Kart’ naik. Itu adalah wahana yang sangat menyenangkan yang membuat aku merasa menjadi seorang pembalap profesional. Setelah kami bermain ‘Go Kart’, kami mengambil foto di sana.

  • The most delightful ride | Wahana yang paling menyenangkan

The Waterboom there is the most refreshing rides than the others. I only played the ‘Wavepool’, whose wave last for about 40 minutes. You could rent the swim tires to play the ‘Wavepool’ and other areas of Waterboom.

Waterboom adalah wahana yang paling menyegarkan dari yang lain. Saya hanya memainkan ‘Wavepool’, yang gelombangnya berlangsung sekitar 40 menit. Anda bisa menyewa ban renang untuk bermain ‘Wavepool’ dan area lain di Waterboom.

Excel

Hi-hi!! Today I’ll post something about my ICT material, Microsoft Excel. So, Excel is a software that is made by Microsoft and spreadsheet program allows presenting information in a clear and concise manner, and can be used to perform mathematical calculations. Excel allows you to convert the spreadsheet data into various charts, such as Bar, Pie, 2D, and 3D. Excel documents consist of columns  and rows of data, made up of individual cells. Below are the important sections that are marked

Basic Formulae

Excel uses standard operators for formulas, such as a plus sign for addition (+), a minus sign for subtraction (), an asterisk for multiplication (*), a forward slash for division (/), a caret (^) for exponents, a semicolon (;) or a coma (,) for Reference operator, a parentheses [ ( and ) ] for opening and closing the group of formula or to
change the order of evaluation and <, >, <=, >=, <> is used for comparison: less than, greater than, greater than or equal to, less than or equal to, not equal to. All formulas in excel have to be started with equal sign  (=). 

Understanding cell references

mehisperf

While you can create simple formulas in Excel manually (for example, =2+2 or =5*5), most of the time you will use cell addresses to create a formula. This is known as making a cell reference.

Using cell references will ensure that your formulas are always accurate because you can change the value of referenced cells without having to rewrite the formula.

Functions

A Functions is a pre-defined formula for performing a particular task.

  • SUM          →         =SUM(starting cell:ending cell)

To add all numbers in a range of cells

  • MAX          →         =MAX(starting cell:ending cell)

Finding the largest number from series of cells

  • MIN           →         =MIN(starting cell:ending cell)

  • AVERAGE →        =AVERAGE(starting cell:ending cell)

Finding the mean/average of series cells

  • COUNT     →         =COUNT(starting cell:ending cell)

Finding the total amount of the selected cells

  • SUMIF      →         =SUMIF(range, criteria, [sum_range])

Finding the sum the values in a range that meet criteria that you specify.

  • ROUND    →         = ROUND(number, num_digits)

Round a number to the decimal places you want

  • IF               →         = IF(logical test;”value if true”;”value if false”)

To decide a condition is true and another value if it’s false

Ok that’s here for today. I’m really tired right now and I wanna watch some korean drama and anime😊😊 See you next time~

Amu Hinamori is a student at Seiyo Elementary, where she has a reputation for being “cool and spicy”; however, her real personality is that of an extremely shy and easily intimidated girl.

#4 Facts

For now, I’m going to tell facts about octopus, It’s quite many ⊙△⊙


fontcandy-4

1st fact: Octopuses have three hearts. For us, humans, we only have 1 heart. But, this creature have 3 hearts! Two of the hearts work exclusively to move blood beyond the animal’s gills, while the third keeps circulation flowing for the organs. The organ heart actually stops beating when the octopus swims, explaining the species’ penchant for crawling rather than swimming, which exhausts them.

2nd fact: Octopus is verrryyy old. The oldest known octopus fossil belongs to an animal that lived some 296 million years ago, during the Carboniferous period,  it’s about 359.2 to 299 million years ago ( ꒪Д꒪)ノ. Harmon Courage describes it as a “flattened cow patty” or a “globular splat,” but a close examination reveals the tell-tale eight arms and two eyes. Researchers aren’t sure, but possibly there’s an ink sack there, too. In other words, long before life on land had progressed beyond puny pre-dinosaur reptiles, octopuses had already established their shape for the millions of years to come.

3rd fact: The plural of Octopus is not “Octopi”.  It is tempting to use “octopi” as the plural of “octopus”, but DON’T DO IT. “Octopi” would be a proper Latin plural, but the word “octopus” has a Greek, rather than a Latin, root. The correct use is to use the word “octopus” to refer to one or several individuals of a single species; use the plural “octopuses” only when talking about multiple species.

4th fact: Aristotle thought octopuses were dumb. In his History of Animals, written in 350 BC, the Greek philosopher wrote that ”The octopus is a stupid creature, for it will approach a man’s hand if it be lowered in the water; but it is neat and thrifty in its habits: that is, it lays up stores in its nest, and, after eating up all that is eatable, it ejects the shells and sheaths of crabs and shell-fish, and the skeletons of little fishes.” After describing a few more quirks of octopus life history–it ejects ink for self-defense, it’s slimy, it can crawl on land–he flippantly signs off, “So much for the mollusca.” However, the big-brained cephalopod, can navigate through mazes, solve problems and remember solutions, and take things apart for fun–they even have distinct personalities.

5th fact: Octopuses have blue blood. To survive in the deep ocean, octopuses evolved a copper rather than iron-based blood called hemocyanin, which turns its blood blue. This copper base is more efficient at transporting oxygen then hemoglobin when water temperature is very low and not much oxygen is around. But this system also causes them to be extremely sensitive to changes in acidity. If the surrounding water’s pH dips too low, octopuses can’t circulate enough oxygen. As such, researchers worry about what will happen to the animals as a result of climate change-induced ocean acidification.

6th fact: Octopus ink doesn’t just hide the animal. The ink also physically harms enemies. It contains a compound called tyrosinase, which, in humans, helps to control the production of the natural pigment melanin. But when sprayed in a predator’s eyes, tyrosinase causes a blinding irritation. It also garbles creatures’ sense of smell and taste. The defensive concoction is so potent, in fact, that octopuses that do not escape their own ink cloud can die.

7th fact: Octopus actually have shells similar to clams and snails. There is a pair of small, spike-shaped structures called stylets inside the octopus’ body, called Cephalopods molluscs, that are a vestigial shell—meaning it really has no function.

8th fact: Octopus frequently lose an arm to predators, but they grow back. 

9th fact: It’s not a good idea to keep Octopus to be a pet. Due to their skills and ability, problem solving to fit through small space, octopus often escaped from the owner.

10th fact: They are about 90 percent muscle. Cephalopods have the biggest noggins among invertebrates. Squid come equipped with big optic lobes, which help them hone in on prey, for example. Plus, these tentancled swimmers have the largest nerve cells of any animals. Squid are also the speediest marine invertebrates, getting up to more than 25 mph using jet propulsion. After water goes into the squid’s body, it squeezes it out with its strong muscles and propels itself. Octopuses have nine brains and they can be trained to do various tasks.
