Remarkable Images Of Volcanic Lightning, A Scientific Mystery
Martin Rietze, a German photographer who works under the title “Alien Landscapes on Planet Earth,” has traveled to dozens of them. Rietze’s photo of the Sakurajima volcano was featured as NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day earlier in the week, after Rietze traveled to southern Japan to photograph it in January. The volcano was part of the Osumi Peninsula until 1914, when it blew its lid and separated to form its own little island. Today, it’s one of the most active volcanos in Asia. “It leaves a very deep impression,” Rietze tells Co.Design. “Sitting near a boiling lava lake, feeling the heat and static charge of an ongoing eruption column 1000m high, smelling all kinds of toxic gasses, watching burning sulfur, hearing eruption sounds as loud as a starting airplane nearby …”
These are the three things that scare me; first, is the death of a family member because I really don’t want that someone in our family member will go, because we are not totally bonded to each other and we have bonding time to each in everyone. I’m scared because I really love them and I can’t live without them if particular my MOM, because she is the one responsible for the things I have now and my brothers and sisters have. Because my mom also stands in the family as Mother and Father, she is one of the most awesome and best mom in the world. Second, is to see myself inside the coffin. Because I’m not yet done with all my plans and my dreams for myself and for my mom, I want to finish first, have some good work and settle down after. I’m scared to die; I know many people scared about that too. Because life is very important, that the lord give to us. We must cherish it and live with joy, in accordance to the word of God. I think it is not just three things, I think it is four things that scares me, third one is losing a friend. It is because it is so difficult to lose a friend; it is not that easy to take it. Because only your friend you can go to if you have problems and share it to them. And they can give some advice and comfort when we cannot go to our family to open up some problems. A friend can help you in some other things and sometimes a friend can pull you down in the main stream of life and don’t choose a friend, treat all of your friends as your best friend. Lastly, I’m scared to God the father our savior. It is because above all those things he has the power to decide to get our lives or he will just give us another chance to live in the world to change for the better and to make all things good that is in line with his holy scriptures. I’m scared of God the father, creator and savior. It is because he can get our lives anytime and anywhere he is one responsible for everything. I’m scared of him because he is the almighty father to be respected and to be loved. These are the things that scare me.

The most painful thing happens to me is when I have gallstones in my gallbladder that some people suffer too. First, I was on my second year high school that time when I have gallstones. It was truly the most agonizing thing that has ever happened to me. Well almost last three years on the past time I lost a rapid amount of weight too fast like 30lbs. In 1 month. Well I just got an ultrasound done a week ago of December 2009 and found I have a crap of load of gallstones and now will have to have surgery to fix the problem and let me tell you it is the most painful thing in this world having gallstones especially at the early age of 14 yrs. Old. So just loose that weight slowly. Having that is very much painful and yet I do not know that I already have that. On the month of September last 2009, my mother noticed that I always have some common cough, colds and fever and other illness I experience. That time I already have stones on my gallbladder and yet it is not that big that cause too much pain. Few months later, I have something felt inside of my stomach. It was very much painful and I cannot get rid off of it. Most people don’t get symptoms from gallstones. But if they block a tube, they can cause bad, steady, cramping pain. You usually feel it in the upper-right side of your abdomen. Doctors call it biliary pain or biliary colic. Second, my first attack of gallstone pain is very frightening, because it hurts so much. Usually, painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen don’t work for this kind of pain I experience. Moving around or passing wind doesn’t help either. I also feel sick and vomit. The pain often comes on in evening or at night. And it typically comes on fast, often after you eat. It may stop after only fifteen minutes. But it typically goes away after four hours to six hours. With time, the gallstone may pass. It just goes into your bowel and out in your stool. But sometimes a gallstone doesn’t pass like mine. It keeps on blocking the tube. And the bile gets trapped in my gallbladder and can’t get out. Then, my gallbladder gets irritate and swollen. This is called an inflamed gallbladder. My doctors said and call it cholecystitis. The pain I experience doesn’t go away. My upper-right part of my abdomen feels sore if someone presses on it. And I have a fever and lose my appetite. And I also get a yellow tinge in my skin and eyes, itchy skin and pale-colored stools. Finally, my mom decided to admit me in the hospital then the doctors immediately check up me and get the result of my ultrasound and x-rays and finalized the exact day of my operation. If I could still remember it, it was December 14, 2009. After the surgery, I feel very comfortable, fine and better. I thought that I couldn’t be awaken after the surgery, but the God the father gave me another life to live even though I don’t have gallbladder anymore. When I look at my tummy I see the scar of the most painful thing happen to me. On the other hand, I’m happy because my family become united because of what happen to me. Now many lessons learned of having that kind of illness. I’m totally okay and healthy now, I think. If you get an inflamed gallbladder, yellowish skin and eyes and other symptoms you experience. I recommend: you’ll probably need to go to hospital for treatment.

The most romantic song, poem, music I’ve ever heard is FAITHFULLY by journey. First of all, other than being a well written song this is one of the best and it is something quite simple and straight forward song. Faithfulness is always romantic. It talks a story that is common one in Rock n’ Roll. The band goes on a grueling road trip, and they get to hear how difficult it is (particular on the lead singer). But this song is not about how difficult the road is on, rather than it is about the toll’ being a music man takes on his wife and family. Second, to talk about being faithful while you’re in a rock n’ roll band is not the coolest thing that a rocker can talk about, but certainly one of the more romantic things. Unfaithfulness is the easy way, while faithfulness takes valor and courage. At any rate, his focus is on what this is doing to his wife. The song is in many ways an ode of gratitude to her for sticking it out with him through it all, and a pledge of faithfulness, which is no small matter out on the road. Perhaps the most unique insight in the song is the usual benefit that comes from being apart for such long periods of time; “Being apart ain’t easy on this love affair”. Finally, two strangers learn to fall in love again. I get the joy of rediscovering it. Oh girl, you stand by me. I’m forever yours…faithfully. There is a hidden advantage to all of this, every time it returns it is given the opportunity and “joy” of falling in love with a girl all over again. Well, for me this the most romantic song, poem, music I’ve ever heard even though it is a bit rock.

My favorite spot in the campus is the School library in the second floor Weiman Building,I have my reasons why school library is one of my favorite spot. First of all, I’m not that really studious person but I like to go to library to have some study time and to feel the silent essence that the library has. I love to see all of the people of different year levels and different courses, studying their major or minor subjects. Before you could enter into the library, you must left your bag and things outside the library at the baggage counter and the person in charge their will give the number assigned where your things to be put in. Second, when you open the door of the library and enter onto, you can notice that many students lined up and they are doing something about their ID’s. Well, it is for the scanning of ID’s for the configuration that they are students that are registered and allowed to enter the school library. It is the one of the most awesome thing to do in entering into the library, I also enjoy doing that and it makes me happy. Sometimes we’ve hang out their just to talk and have some bonding time of my classmates and friends, and also to sleep and to feel the cool temperature the library has. But, most of the time we do studying in our major subject “Accounting” we spend almost of our time and we also study our minor subjects. We will stop till the library will close. Finally, the second thing that makes me happy and made me choose the library to be my favorite spot is when you cross into a passage way like you can see that there is a number corresponding to students that enters the library and “umaatras ako para maging good for two students ang akin” funny to hear but I love to. And, when you go out of the library and you’d plan to borrow a particular book you wanted and you didn’t ask its permission to the person in charge there that will give you the approval to borrow it. The alarm will automatically ring that gives you a warning that you must ask permission to borrow it, after that the guard will check it and you can go. Well, these are some of my good reason why I’d choose library to be one of my favorite spot in the campus.
What were some things I miss about being a child? I turned 17 last August, 2012, which made me realize how much I miss the things I did in my childhood. I miss being excited about new car toys and new recipes for easy bake oven. The closest thing I have these days as toys would be my laptop and cell phone. I loved attending birthday parties at chuck-e-cheese and I admit to having a birthday party at McDonalds play place once, LOL. Besides all the changes (which I am not making judgements on per se, just stating the fact that things change). I miss playing “DAMPA”,”HOLENAY”, “PATINTERO”, “TOY CARS”, “KASING/TRUMPO” and “DAKPANAY” games and other recess games in my elementary years. Second, such as climbing trees, riding my bike after school, jumping on a trampoline (not only doing it, but being able to do it), and eating anything I wanted to without worrying if it was ethnical, sustainable or bad for my health. Well these are the games I miss about being a child. Now my new games are: playing “DOTA” with friends and hanging out with them everywhere we’ve plan to go.
One thing I do miss in particular is playing near the creek searching for cool rocks or fossils, swinging from vines and branches, pretending I had some magical power and was on a quest, or just skipping rocks and thinking it was really cool when a turtle or snake popped its head up out of the water. I can also remember running through overgrown fields catching grasshoppers, which seemed to be everywhere, or else doing the same thing at night to catch fireflies (the coolest insects ever). I can’t remember the last time I saw a grasshopper or firefly.
The most serious thing I probably had to worry about back then were the school dances, because that would mean “slow dancing” with a girl was an option and I dreaded speaking to other girls as pre teen. There were some that were my friends, but when it came to my elementary school crushers, I was so shy.
Now adults, we aren’t as innocent. We have to face bills under our names, depths, and anything all we wanted to buy. We have real adult relationships to worry about now, that can make or break our perspectives about trusting people. Some of us are engaged to be single and holy. Well, becoming older year by year can give us a realizations how we miss being a child and the things we’ve done in our childhood life.

Dream is held in the area of our mind when we are asleep. It happens to all. Often, a dream is helpful. Dreams may be real or imaginary. When we think about a thing or an event much in our practical life, a dream concerning that thing or that event touches our subconscious mind in our slumber.
Once I had a very strange dream about ZOMBIE’s. Before long, ring! Ring! I was abruptly jerked awake. I was in my room, alone! Where on earth was my mother? I tried to turn on the lights, but they did not light up. I was starting to get a bit nervous.
I opened a door slightly and peeked out from behind the door. There was not a single soul in the corridor. I am becoming more scared by the minute. Rumbling noises from the hallway caught my attention. I put my ear to the door and listened carefully to the weird reverberating noises.
My curiosity got the better of me, so I opened the door warily. Oh my! It was a zombie! The monstrous creature gave me a devilish look and reached for me to eat my brain. I let out a terrified scream and tried to slam the door shut. The hideous being kicked the door open and chased me around the room.
I darted out of the door and ran for my life, not knowing where to hide. I dashed down the stairway and finally reached the basement. To my horror, there were more zombies approaching hundreds of them. I turned tail and headed back to my room, hoping that the dreadful zombie will left my room and leave. Till suddenly I discover my power, the lightning power. Haha! It is so weird to hear but, yes it is true. I use my power to eradicate all of the zombies and protected all the people from the hundreds of zombies. Fortunately, it had successfully worked. I heaved a big sigh of relief, lock the door and hid under the bed once again.
Out of the blue, a hairy hand grabbed me and began to shake me violently. “Wake up! Wake up!” A voice penetrated through my muzzy brain. I hesitantly open one eye and yes, I was glad it as my mother waking me up because I’m experiencing a nightmare that could get rid of my life. Dreams may be real or imaginary but it tells a message about something will happen soon.

One of the common problems that many people are really concerned about is being single. Do I have any hurtful experiences and cause that a lot to me? Each day I always ended up questioning myself why I’m (still) single.
I’m still single at this very point of my life because I have a lot of priorities to be put in first before entering into a relationship, like finishing my studies first to have some good work and help to achieve the dreams of my mother. Some people say that when you are into a relationship you are more motivated. I think, it’s not only the reason why you are motivated, but because you can set your mom as a motivator to you in schooling particularly. For she work more than 8 hours as per required of the nature of her work.
I have my reasons why I might be single. First of all it is because I am looking for the best and I don’t want to settle for average or even above average choices. Because of many people settle for incorrect choices just to get into a relationship which is something that ruins the relationship later on. Moreover, it is because their expectations of themselves are so high and so they believe they deserve someone who is at least, as elite as them, and those people are rare. And when I have caught the attention of many but few or almost no one caught my attention and that’s I’m still single. I never chase anybody even if I like her and this might make the other person believe that I don’t want her. This means if someone played hard to get with me then I am challenged and bother trying harder. Why I’m still single is that I have seen so much that it became really hard to impress people and people who are impressed by anything are love addictions who have a low self-esteem and who want to start any relationship just to feel good about them.
Being single doesn’t mean that you are weak; it means that you are strong enough to wait for what you deserve and who you wait for. It may not always be a bad thing. Break-ups hurt us all. But at some level, you might even be relieved for getting away from a manipulative or an abusive relationship. So, I guess it is better to be single than to be with someone you don’t even like! Sometimes, it truly identify with sad and laugh with joyous, and get the optimism flowing.
You don’t need to be loved, not the cost of yourself. The single relationship that is truly central and crucial in a life is the relationship to the self. Of all the people you will know in a lifetime, you are the only one you will never lose. In the end you will think that this thing is not really a problem it is a matter of choice to be single or to be engaged into a relationship.

"Being so close with your friends and constantly insulting each other as a joke that you don’t notice that it already hurt someone" Well, we do that always. If you have a friend they can bring you a cookie or a beer and a hug once in a while. The flip side will require you to give your friend a cookie or a beer and a hug and least often. That is friendship in a nutshell. Friends must not be ignored nor must you wait for your friend to ask you for a cookie, beer or a hug. Just give all that you hope to receive in return. I think it was once said that you should “do unto others as you wish to do unto you”. Let’s face it, with friendship comes the occasional argument. This isn’t a bad thing, as friends that argue in a healthy way actually have better relationships than those that avoid conflict altogether. Your friends are human and will make mistakes. Sometimes, they’ll hurt your feelings. In order to keep your friendship strong, you will need to forgive and move on. Many times a friend will make a gaffe and apologize. If you say you accept their apology and really don’t, these will only cause underlying resentment to build. You are already harboring resentment for some of the other things your friend has done in the past. If you’re struggling with moving on from an argument, you have to discuss your feelings with your pal. Don’t use the discussion to berate your friend, but instead use it to come to an understanding.
