A Better Future

 “I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me.”
A quote from a 2006 movie, ‘The Departed’, shows that the world you live in could form you. Not all people have an integrity which keeps them from becoming what they want.
Education is one of the thing which could define a person. Almost in every case, the first education a person gets is from their family. People learn to read, to walk, to speak as their basic skills in their future life. Stepping the age of 3, children goes to primary school. They would learn basic manners such as eating, being polite, and being caring. As they goes to elementary school, children will have their first experience in facing other people. The school’s culture could really affect a children’s thought. Getting older and older, what a person has gone through during their life will become a part of their life. When a person is old enough, their characters would be damn impossible to be changed. Then the question is, when is the right time to give them education?
Compared to a forty years old man, a three  years old child is much easier to be educated. Education on knowledge is important, but education in manners is much more important.  From manner, it could become a character. And from the character of a community, it could become a culture, an ideology. Furthermore, the ideology of a generation will most likely be inherited by the generations after, even though it will have changes slowly.
Let’s not regret what has happened but instead let’s fix before it’s too late. In order to build a better future, first it needs an inception. Teach our kids to do little things like throwing trash in the bin, smile when they meet people, be polite to others, and respect each other. Prevent your kids from things which could be the inception of something bad. At least avoid violence in the house. No profane word, no hatred. No matter how school teaches their student, they don’t have the authority to control what the students do at home, but school could make a subject, once a week, which teaches their students manner. In school, usually there is something we call it basic learning. The purpose is to shape the mind of a person so that it fits the existing culture. No matter how everybody did to you, everything starts from the person itself.

Imagine what humanity could have earned if we had been living in harmony. It would just took years to teach knowledge, but it would take a lifetime to teach about the meaning of living.

TV-free Day

Do you know what they call cheese burger in France? Nowadays, almost all families have TV in their house. Even stall you see everyday in the streets have Tv. Is watching TV good? Some might say. But before stating whether TV-free day each week is good or not lets have some things you should consider.
Money runs the world. Almost everything on TV exist because of money. There are advertisement on free TV channel because the station needs money. There are no advertisement on paid TV channel because they already got what they want. Imagine what could really happen if there is ‘TV-free day’ each week.
Maybe some people say it’s good because they think TV affect people’s thought badly. By decreasing the number of watching hours, is it effective enough?
If there really is ‘TV-free day’, what day of the week do you think would be best? Monday to Friday? People need rest after going home from work and school. Weekend? C’mon people watch football. It’s because of money you could see the world today. Otherwise, TV is just a type of gadget. With computers and smartphones, you could almost get everything other types of gadget provide. With clock, calendar, compass, health companion, alarm with an addition of internet access where you could stream television, what else you couldn’t get?
It’s not impossible that one day TV will no longer be needed. Probably it’s just until the next generation of human.
After all, I don’t think think of having a ‘TV-free day’ each week is a good idea, even it doesn’t reach the level of descent. If there really is, maybe it’s just some people who would agree with their ‘not so smart’ barin. Telling your kid to stop staring at TV all the time is probably good, but having a ‘TV-free day’? Fuck of

'When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace'

It's quote by Jimi Hendrix, a guitarist who loves peace in his life. What I think, it tells how pathetic people these days are. People seeks power without giving a damn about other people. They don't have love in their heart while love is the main thing our world need if we want peace. That's why our world does not know peace.

A Great Leader

A leader is someone who leads or directs a group of people to do certain things. Being a leader isnt easy. Some people say leaders are born, not created. These are some factors which make a leader good or not

Each people are born with charisma. But not all people have great charisma. People with great charisma tend to be more respected, trusted, and influential

Factors beside charisma can be trained. Hiding purpose from the members are important. A leader being fooled by his own member is a shame. However, every person is a leader in its own unique way. Sometimes, a great leader isnt honest nor inspirational, but its what makes them good

Helena, My Chemical Romance


Long ago
Just like the hearse, you die to get in again
We are so far from you

Burning on just like a match you strike to incinerate
The lives of everyone you know
And what's the worst you take (worst you take)
From every heart you break (heart you break)
And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
Well, I've been holding on tonight

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Came a time
When every star fall brought you to tears again
We are the very hurt you sold

And what's the worst you take (worst you take)
From every heart you break (heart you break)
And like the blade you stain (blade you stain)
Well, I've been holding on tonight

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

Can you hear me?
Are you near me?
Can we pretend
To leave? And then
We'll meet again
When both our cars collide.

What's the worst that I can say?
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight

And if you carry on this way
Things are better if I stay
So long and goodnight
So long and goodnight
 Gerard Way, My Chemical Romance leadsinger, wrote this song which tells about a man and a woman (Helena) who die in a car crash. This song is a mourning to Helena's death. He gives his last goodbye in this song while he burns in hell.

Little Red Riding Hood

Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who was loved by everyone who looked at her, but most of all by her grandmother, and there was nothing that she would not have given to the child. Once she gave her a little riding hood of red velvet, which suited her so well that she would never wear anything else; so she was always called 'Little Red Riding Hood.'

     One day her mother said to her: 'Come, Little Red Riding Hood, here is a piece of cake and a bottle of wine; take them to your grandmother, she is ill and weak, and they will do her good. Set out before it gets hot, and when you are going, walk nicely and quietly and do not run off the path, or you may fall and break the bottle, and then your grandmother will get nothing; and when you go into her room, don't forget to say, "Good morning", and don't peep into every corner before you do it.'

     'I will take great care,' said Little Red Riding Hood to her mother, and gave her hand on it.

     The grandmother lived out in the wood, half a league from the village, and just as Little Red Riding Hood entered the wood, a wolf met her. Red Riding Hood did not know what a wicked creature he was, and was not at all afraid of him.

     'Good day, Little Red Riding Hood,' said he.

     'Thank you kindly, wolf.'

     'Whither away so early, Little Red Riding Hood?'

     'To my grandmother's.'

     'What have you got in your apron?'

     'Cake and wine; yesterday was baking-day, so poor sick grandmother is to have something good, to make her stronger.'

     'Where does your grandmother live, Little Red Riding Hood?'

     'A good quarter of a league farther on in the wood; her house stands under the three large oak-trees, the nut-trees are just below; you surely must know it,' replied Little Red Riding Hood.

<  2  >
     The wolf thought to himself: 'What a tender young creature! what a nice plump mouthful - she will be better to eat than the old woman. I must act craftily, so as to catch both.'

     So he walked for a short time by the side of Little Red Riding Hood, and then he said: 'See, Little Red Riding Hood, how pretty the flowers are about here - why do you not look round? I believe, too, that you do not hear how sweetly the little birds are singing; you walk gravely along as if you were going to school, while everything else out here in the wood is merry.'

     Little Red Riding Hood raised her eyes, and when she saw the sunbeams dancing here and there through the trees, and pretty flowers growing everywhere, she thought: 'Suppose I take grandmother a fresh nosegay; that would please her too. It is so early in the day that I shall still get there in good time.'

     So she ran from the path into the wood to look for flowers. And whenever she had picked one, she fancied that she saw a still prettier one farther on, and ran after it, and so got deeper and deeper into the wood.

     Meanwhile the wolf ran straight to the grandmother's house and knocked at the door.

     'Who is there?'

     'Little Red Riding Hood,' replied the wolf. 'She is bringing cake and wine; open the door.'

     'Lift the latch,' called out the grandmother, 'I am too weak, and cannot get up.'

     The wolf lifted the latch, the door sprang open, and without saying a word he went straight to the grandmother's bed, and devoured her. Then he put on her clothes, dressed himself in her cap, laid himself in bed and drew the curtains.

     Little Red Riding Hood, however, had been running about picking flowers, and when she had gathered so many that she could carry no more, she remembered her grandmother, and set out on the way to her.

<  3  >
     She was surprised to find the cottage-door standing open, and when she went into the room, she had such a strange feeling that she said to herself: 'Oh dear! how uneasy I feel today, and at other times I like being with grandmother so much.' She called out: 'Good morning,' but received no answer; so she went to the bed and drew back the curtains. There lay her grandmother with her cap pulled far over her face, and looking very strange.

     'Oh! grandmother,' she said, 'what big ears you have!'

     'All the better to hear you with, my child,' was the reply.

     'But, grandmother, what big eyes you have!' she said.

     'All the better to see you with, my dear.'

     'But, grandmother, what large hands you have!'

     'All the better to hug you with.'

     'Oh! but, grandmother, what a terrible big mouth you have!'

     'All the better to eat you with!'

     And scarcely had the wolf said this, than with one bound he was out of bed and swallowed up Red Riding Hood.

     When the wolf had appeased his appetite, he lay down again in the bed, fell asleep and began to snore very loud.

     The huntsman was just passing the house, and thought to himself: 'How the old woman is snoring! I must just see if she wants anything.' So he went into the room, and when he came to the bed, he saw that the wolf was lying in it.

     'Do I find you here, you old sinner!' said he. 'I have long sought you!' But just as he was going to fire at him, it occurred to him that the wolf might have devoured the grandmother, and that she might still be saved, so he did not fire, but took a pair of scissors, and began to cut open the stomach of the sleeping wolf.

<  4  >
     When he had made two snips, he saw the little red riding hood shining, and then he made two snips more, and the little girl sprang out, crying: 'Ah, how frightened I have been! How dark it was inside the wolf.'

     After that the aged grandmother came out alive also, but scarcely able to breathe. Red Riding Hood, however, quickly fetched great stones with which they filled the wolf's belly, and when he awoke, he wanted to run away, but the stones were so heavy that he collapsed at once, and fell dead.

     Then all three were delighted. The huntsman drew off the wolf's skin and went home with it; the grandmother ate the cake and drank the wine which Red Riding Hood had brought, and revived. But Red Riding Hood thought to herself: 'As long as I live, I will never leave the path by myself to run into the wood, when my mother has forbidden me to do so.'

It is also related that once, when Red Riding Hood was again taking cakes to the old grandmother, another wolf spoke to her, and tried to entice her from the path. Red Riding Hood, however, was on her guard, and went straight forward on her way, and told her grandmother that she had met the wolf, and that he had said 'good morning' to her, but with such a wicked look in his eyes, that if they had not been on the public road she was certain he would have eaten her up.

     'Well,' said the grandmother, 'we will shut the door, so that he can not come in.'

     Soon afterwards the wolf knocked, and cried: 'Open the door, grandmother, I am Little Red Riding Hood, and am bringing you some cakes.'

     But they did not speak, or open the door, so the grey-beard stole twice or thrice round the house, and at last jumped on the roof, intending to wait until Red Riding Hood went home in the evening, and then to steal after her and devour her in the darkness. But the grandmother saw what was in his thoughts.

<  5  >
     In front of the house was a great stone trough, so she said to the child: 'Take the pail, Red Riding Hood; I made some sausages yesterday, so carry the water in which I boiled them to the trough.'

     Red Riding Hood carried until the great trough was quite full. Then the smell of the sausages reached the wolf, and he sniffed and peeped down, and at last stretched out his neck so far that he could no longer keep his footing and began to slip, and slipped down from the roof straight into the great trough, and was drowned. But Red Riding Hood went joyously home, and no one ever did anything to harm her again.

Amazing Structure

The Colosseum or Coliseum, which is also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is an elliptical amphitheatre in the centre of the city of RomeItaly. Built of concrete and stone, it was the largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, and is considered one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering. It is the largest amphitheatre in the world.
The Colosseum is situated just east of the Roman Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in 70 AD, and was completed in 80 AD under his successor and heir Titus. Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius).
The Colosseum could hold, it is estimated, between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators, and was used for gladiatorial contests andpublic spectacles such as mock sea battlesanimal hunts, executions, re-enactments of famous battles, and dramas based onClassical mythology. The building ceased to be used for entertainment in the early medieval era. It was later reused for such purposes as housing, workshops, quarters for a religious order, a fortress, a quarry, and a Christian shrine.
Although in the 21st century it stays partially ruined because of damage caused by devastating earthquakes and stone-robbers, the Colosseum is an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome. It is one of Rome's most popular tourist attractions and has close connections with the Roman Catholic Church, as each Good Friday the Pope leads a torchlit "Way of the Cross" procession that starts in the area around the Colosseum.
In 2007 the complex was included among the New7Wonders of the World, following a competition organized by New Open World Corporation (NOWC).
The Colosseum is also depicted on the Italian version of the five-cent euro coin.
