On Tuesday (26 October 2010) Mount Merapi in Central Java erupted, killing at least 25 people, while thousands of others forced to flee deep into the mountain slopes safer. The volcano has been spewing high-temperature ash and smoke to the air above the island of Java.

Devastating tsunami waves had swept hundreds of homes, killing at least 150 residents of local communities, while there were about 500 people missing.

At first, many local villagers refused to move from the fertile slopes of the volcano. They said they want to stay there while protecting homes and their possessions. However, due to increasingly desperate situation, then the thousands of villagers began flocking to places of refugee in emergency shelters Tuesday night.

Junk Food and Childhood Obesity

The number of children who are overweight is increasing every year. In fact, according to health research, the percentage of childhood obesity in the United States grew at an alarming rate - one of three children now considered overweight or obese. A new study released by the National Cancer Institute report has found that nearly 40 percent of the calories consumed by children aged 2 to 18 years is bad calories, most unhealthy type of calories, which come from junk food , like that comes from soda, sugar-sweet drinks, cakes, cookies, donuts, ice cream, pizza, and whole milk .

The dependency on food mentioned above has been quite alarming for the health of children. This food is for the majority of genetically modified and loaded with unnatural additives, pesticides, and herbicides .. They are packaged in many interesting colors so that children beg to their parents to buy corn syrup-laced cereal and soda.

On the other hand, actually there are also many foods that come from sources of organic food that is free from toxic pesticides and others. This means that they can increase better the caloric intake of children . All food is made through a process that is cheaper with no additional preservatives and other additives, so it contains better nutrition. We have to accustom early the children to eat healthy, so they will not be overweight.

In addition, they also will be spared from diabetes, heart disease, cancer and other serious illnesses that are usually associated with obesity..  .

Good Luck!

Sun Storms and Global Warming

A couple days ago my senior blogger friend H. Nizam has written an article about Flood in Wasior, West Papua . This article then remembered me about my writing Solar Storms in 2012 .

Referring to those above articles, it looks like there is relationship between sun storms and global warming. According to several scientific researches, I think that it is true.
The impact of the explosions in the sun can be very serious, having a variety of effects on Earth.

The recent climate change is caused by the global warming. In other hand, the global warming occurs because there are several explosions on the sun surface.
Actually we have tried to reduce the impact of global warming phenomena since long time ago, i.e by planting many, many of woods, including reforesting some regions. But, unfortunately there is no positive result yet.

My 4-year-old grandson, Ghazwan, has also been frequently whine to me to play with the computer. He most likes playing games in the collection of toy trains for children “Thomas and his friends”. Once absorbed in his play the game, to not know the time, so he should be warned not to stay long in front of the computer because it can hurt the eyes.

In buying a laptop computer, we also have to be careful. In the marketplace many computer brands offered. We must be careful at selecting good quality but low price. Through the online store, we can find computer brand in accordance with our wishes.

For me to write an article on the website, I've chosen Toshiba Libretto because it has many advantages such as the screen is amazing, the processor very speedy, programs download and install quickly, while Web surfing is fast.
As far as the dual screen, it is nice to open windows and split them.
