ALL ABOUT LOVE

Love is any of a number of emotions related to a sense of strong affection[1] and attachment. The word lovepleasure (“I loved that meal”) to intense interpersonal attraction (“I love my wife”). This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, even compared to other emotional states. can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from generic

As an abstract concept, love usually refers to a deep, ineffable feeling of tenderly caring for another person. Even this limited conception of love, however, encompasses a wealth of different feelings, from the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love to the nonsexual emotional closeness of familial and platonic love[2] to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love.[3] Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.

Definitions

The English word “love” can have a variety of related but distinct meanings in different contexts. Often, other languages use multiple words to express some of the different concepts that English relies mainly on “love” to encapsulate; one example is the plurality of Greek words for “love.”Cultural differences in conceptualizing love thus make it doubly difficult to establish any universal definition.[4]

Although the nature or essence of love is a subject of frequent debate, different aspects of the word can be clarified by determining what isn’t love. As a general expression of positive sentiment (a stronger form of like), love is commonly contrasted with hate (or neutral apathy); as a less sexual and more emotionally intimate form of romantic attachment, love is commonly contrasted with lust; and as an interpersonal relationship with romantic overtones, love is commonly contrasted with friendship, although other definitions of the word love may be applied to close friendships in certain contexts.

When discussed in the abstract, love usually refers to interpersonal love, an experience felt by a person for another person. Love often involves caring for or identifying with a person or thing, including oneself (cf. narcissism). In addition to cross-cultural differences in understanding love, ideas about love have also changed greatly over time. Some historians date modern conceptions of romantic love to courtly Europe during or after the Middle Ages, although the prior existence of romantic attachments is attested by ancient love poetry.[5]

2010 Movies Guide

2010 Movies List - Best New Movies In 2010The new movies of 2010. It doesn’t sound like a real year does it? 2010. More like something that appears on a title card at the beginning of a movie. It sounds like the future. It sounds like you need a crazy, wild-eyed old man and a flux capacitor to get there, but you don’t, all you need is patience.

Unfortunately, we at Movie Moron are impatient as all get out. Screw patience. We’re already looking ahead to 2010 and its silver screen offerings, and we’d like you to join us. We’ll be your crazy, wild-eyed old man. Below is a list of our 20 most anticipated movies, 2010. Pay attention, Marty…

20. Cop Out

Starring: Bruce Willis, Tracy Morgan, Seann William Scott, Adam Brody, Jason Lee

Director: Kevin Smith

Release Date: 26th February 2010

2010 Movies Guide | List

Cop Out is the first movie from Kevin Smith that he hasn’t written himself. It’ll be interesting to see how he takes on someone else’s material while no doubt retaining his distinctive voice. The concept appears to be a straightforward buddy comedy about a couple of cops but Smith should be able to elevate the familiar ground he has to cover. Maybe elevate isn’t the right word, more like bring it down to his level. Whatever he does, we can’t wait to see it and that’s why Cop Out makes the list.

19. Looper

Starring: N/A

Director: Rian Johnson

Release Date: TBC 2010

2010 Movies Guide

This movie is a bit of an enigma. Still in the very early stages of development, little is known about the project plot-wise, and there are no stars attached. In fact, it’s the only film on the list with no actors on board, so the fact that it even makes the list says a lot. It says we love Brick, we really like The Brothers Bloom, and we are super-stoked to see Rian Johnson tackle an ultraviolent time-travel movie. Rian Johnson builds worlds, he takes ordinary surroundings and injects them with the uncanny, and he does this in high school movies and con-men movies. What is he going to do with a sci-fi movie, a genre where such mish-mashing and world-building is de rigueur?

18. The Last Airbender

Starring: Noah Ringer, Dev Patel, Jackson Rathbone, Nicola Peltz

Director: M Night Shyamalan

Release Date: 2nd July 2010

New Movie 2010 |

Possibly the most divisive movie on the list. Shyamalan is loved by some and loathed by others, but there’s no denying that The Happening was an all-time low, resulting in some declaring The Last Airbender a flop before hearing a single line of dialogue. But it’s not just the Shyamalan apologists that are praying for this movie to be good, it’s fans of the source material. Avatar: The Last Airbender was one of Nick’s most popular shows, a well animated, action-packed, humorous and intelligent piece of television with a mythos to rival Star Wars and an appeal well beyond its target demographic.

Many still struggle to cast aside fury at the thought of the controversial casting, but with teaser trailers and teaser images cropping up, anticipation is building.

17. The Book of Eli

Starring: Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Mila Kunis

Directors: Albert & Allen Hughes

Release Date: 15th January 2010

movies in 2010

You didn’t know you wanted a post-apocalyptic showdown between Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman, but the guys that made Menace II Society did, so they went ahead and made The Book of Eli for you. It’s about, naturally, the titular book, a tome that may be the key to man’s salvation. Denzel defends the book, Oldman does the opposite. Comic Book artist Chris Weston did design work for the film, and says on his blog that ‘you’ll get to see Denzel Washington kick serious arse in this film… ‘Man on Fire’ is a mere taster compared to the righteous vengeance he rains down on the scum in this film’. We recommend ‘rains down on the scum’ become a phrase that you use regularly, not only because you’ll sound epic, but to familiarise yourself with the concept so as to prevent yourself from becoming overwhelmed when you witness Mr Washington in all his arse-kicking glory.

16. Paul

Starring: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen

Director: Greg Mottola

Release Date: TBC 2010

new movies 2010

Brit Comic Book Geeks travelling across the US with an alien in tow. Meh. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost? Not so meh. The talented duo reunite for another comic caper, this time sans director Edgar Wright, who just found out there’s a whole guild of other screen actors out there. It’ll be nice to see Pegg back with Frost after cavorting around in space and sucking up to Megan Fox – and now they’ve added Seth Rogen to the crew! Or he’s added them to his, we’re not sure. Rogen will be voicing the alien known as Paul, and he has a pretty weird voice anyway, right? So that should work nicely. Knowing Frost and Pegg this will be a crowd pleaser and a nerd-pleaser at the same time, and there aren’t many films out there that manage to do both. Plus, it’s another offering from the director of Superbad.

Friendship Never Ends……..

Persahabatan adalah sebuah ikatan yang sangat sulit untuk diputuskan. Ketika sebuah persahabatan itu mengikat dua orang atau lebih maka nilainya akan bertambah, lebih dari sekedar pertemanan.

Memiliki seorang sahabat sejati jauh lebih baik dibanding jika kita memiliki beribu teman yang hanya perduli pada diri sendiri. Persahabatan itu ketika seseorang mau untuk berkata jujur dan tidak berbohong untuk membahagiakan sahabatnya.

Persahabatan diwarnai dengan berbagai pengalaman suka dan duka, dihibur – disakiti, diperhatikan – dikecewakan, didengar – diabaikan, dibantu – ditolak, namun semua ini tidak pernah sengaja dilakukan dengan tujuan kebencian..

Proses dari teman menjadi sahabat membutuhkan usaha pemeliharaan dari kesetiaan, tetapi bukan pada saat kita membutuhkan bantuan barulah kita memiliki motivasi mencari perhatian, pertolongan dan pernyataaan kasih dari orang lain, tetapi justru ia berinisiatif memberikan dan mewujudkan apa yang dibutuhkan oleh sahabatnya.

Persahabatan tidak mengenal perbedaan. Dia akan datang pada siapa saja yang menginginkannya.

Dalam masa kejayaan, teman-teman mengenal kita. Dalam kesengsaraan, kita mengenal teman-teman kita. Disitulah akan kita ketahui siapakah sahabat kita sebenarnya…

Ini beberapa foto teman2 aku waktu SMA

Di bawah ini teman-teman kuliah aku yang gokil abiezt…..!!!!!!

They’re my bestfriend forever…!!!!!!!Aku harap kalian juga punya teman-teman seperti teman-teman aku. Dunia itu nggak bakalan indah klo kita nggak punya teman. Karena nggak ada satupun manusia yang nggak butuh teman….

Study Hard, Friends….!!!!!!!!!

TENSES

Tense is one of at least four qualities, along with mood, voice, and aspect, which utterances may express. Tenses represent a contrast of temporal references along the timeline of an utterance. All languages use the same tenses — present, past and future, however the expression of these tenses cannot always be translated directly from one language to another. While verbs in all languages have typical forms by which they are identified and indexed in dictionaries, usually the most common present tense or an infinitive, their use in methods for expressing tense varies among languages.

1. Present tense Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual. The action can be a habit, a hobby, a daily event, a scheduled event or something that often happens. It can also be something a person often forgets or usually does not do.

We use the simple present tense when:

* the action is general

* the action happens all the time, or habitually, in the past, present and future

* the action is not only happening now

* the statement is always true. Look at these examples:

* I live in New York.

* The Moon goes round the Earth.

* John drives a taxi.

* He does not drive a bus.

* We do not work at night.

* Do you play football?

2. Present continuous tense We often use the present continuous tense in English. It is very different from the simple present tense, both in structure and in use.

We use the present continuous tense to talk about:

* action happening now

* action in the future

The structure of the present continuous tense is: subject + auxiliary verb + main verb be base + ing Examples:

* You are learning English now.

* You are not swimming now.

* Are you sleeping?

* I am sitting.

* I am not standing.

* They are reading their books.

3. Simple past Use the Simple Past to express the idea that an action started and finished at a specific time in the past. Sometimes, the speaker may not actually mention the specific time, but they do have one specific time in mind.

To make the simple past tense, we use:

* past form only

* auxiliary did + base form

For examples:

– saw a movie yesterday.

– I didn’t see a play yesterday.

– Last year, I traveled to Japan.

– Did you have dinner last night?

– She washed her car.

4. Past continuous tense

Use the Past Continuous to indicate that a longer action in the past was interrupted. The interruption is usually a shorter action in the Simple Past. Remember this can be a real interruption or just an interruption in time. We use it to say what we were in the middle of doing at a particular moment in the past.

The structure of the past continuous tense is: subject + auxiliary verb BE + main verb was were base + ing

For examples:

– I was watching TV when she called.

– When the phone rang, she was writing a letter.

– While we were having the picnic, it started to rain.

– What were you doing when the earthquake started?

– I was listening to my iPod, so I didn’t hear the fire alarm.

– You were not listening to me when I told you to turn the oven off.

CHADO

MINUM TEH GAYA JEPANG









Upacara minum teh atau disebut chado awalnya berasal dari Cina. Minum teh dipercaya sebagai cara untuk menolong mereka yang ingin belajar meditasi agar mendapat ketenangan. Teh juga dianggap sebagai ramuan obat. Lalu pada akhir abad ke 15 upacara ini diadopsi oleh biksu Zen di Jepang.

Karena asal upacara ini dari biksu Zen, maka chado mengandung prinsip dasar Zen juga yaitu wa, kei, sei,dan jaku. Wa artinya keserasian antara sesame manusia, manusia dalam alam. Kei artinya rasa hormat. Sei artinya kemurnian atau jiwa yang bersih. Jaku artinya ketenangan pikiran. Singkatnya, dengan membuat teh, kita bisa menyatu dengan alam dan akan segera mendapatkan ketenangan.


Cara Minum Teh Gaya Jepang

  1. Chado dilakukan di chashitsu (ruang teh). Di tempat ini digelar sekitar enam tatami (tikar) dan di tengah ruangan ada lubang khusus untuk membuat teh. Posisi duduk para tamu pun ada aturan khusus sehingga kita tepa bisa melihat proses pembuatan teh itu.
  2. Penghidang chado selalu menggunakan kimono. Ada peralatan khusus untuk upacara ini. Yaitu chakin (serbet untuk mengelap), chawan (mangkuk teh), chashaku (sendok teh  dari bamboo), chanson (pengocok teh), dan natsume (wadah bubuk teh). Semua alat ini dibersihkan di depan tamu dengan menggunakan chakin dengan gerakan perlahan-lahan.
  3. Setelah semuanya siap, matcha (bubuk teh) disendokkan ke dalam mangkuk lalu air dituangkan ke dalam mangkuk.
  4. Lalu dengan menggunakan chason, teh dikocok perlahan sekitar 50 kali hingga berbusa. Teh siap dihidangkan.
  5. Setiap tamu dipersilahkan untuk meminum teh. Ada cara khusus untuk meminumnya. Pertama, antara tamu dan yang menghidangkan teh saling membungkukkan badan sebagai tanda hormat. Lalu kita memutar chawan dua kali. Dan kita harus meletakkan motif chawan pada posisi menghadap ke depan. Jangan sampai terbalik.
  6. Teguk teh hingga berbunyi sluurp. Itu artinya kita menikmati teh yang dihidangkan. Setelah selesai, letakkan chawan dan kita kembali membungkukkan badan sebagai ucapan terima kasih.
  7. Proses ini diulang sampai seluruh tamu mendapat giliran menikmati teh. Kita akan mendapatkan sebuah chamanju (kue manis) untuk menetralkan rasa pahit dari teh.
