Each day, this water will evaporate with help of the sun. The process where water evaporates from plants is called transpiration. Afterwards the vapour will experience the process of condensation where the vapour will condense and turn into a cloud. The form of the cloud always changes according to weather conditions.
The clouds will move to different locations with the help of wind that bellows vertically or horizontally. The movement of the vertical wind results in the cloud forming big 'lumps'. After that, the wind increases the size of the cloud and each cloud will overlap. Finally the cloud will reach the atmosphere that has a lower temperature.

National Exam: Pro and Contra?

National exam becomes the hot topic in most of discussions. Though the Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by the go-vernment on the organization of the national exams, the controversy over whether it is necessary to maintain the national exams (UN) has continued. Some debates include the primary questions such as; does the quality of Indonesia education depend on the national exam?, will the quality of the Indonesian education system worsen without natipnal exam?

People, who support the national exam explain that the quality of the Indonesia education system will drop without the national exam, so they try to defend the current system.

Hoever there are people who disagree with the opinion. Those who against this national exam kept in our high school education say that it doesn't need the national exams because the quality of education does not just depend on the national exam. Further, the national exam only measures a small portion of students' competence in specific subjects, and does not measure students' competences throughout the semester.

The Karate Kid

There’s a lot of new American movie that remake  by the old movie.One of them is The Karate Kid.This movie is the remakes of the old movie with the same title that made in 1984. Fans of Jackie Chan,Jaden Smith and Taraji Hanson will be able to see their idols acting in this movie.The Karate Kid directed by Herald Zwart and the story written by Christopher Murphey and Robert Mark Kamen.
Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) is a 12-year-old boy who lives in Detroit. One day his mother, Sherry (Taraji Henson), moved to China, so that Dre followed his mother  to move to China. Although at first time he felt  dislike with that country and wanted to get back to America, but Dre began to  change when he met a  girl named May Ying (Han Wenwen). Both familiarity, made Cheng (Zhenwei Wang), a friend of May, did not accept. With his kung fu ability, he defeated Dre.
Dre always be distrubed by Cheng, until one day he met with Mr Cheng Han (Jackie Chan), who worked as a custodian officer cleanliness in the apartment where Dre and his mother lived,  help him. When Dre knew that Mr.Han has a kung fu ability,he asked Mr.Han to teach him.At the first time,Mr.Han rejected,but in the end he wanted to teach him with reservations,that Dre had to follow the National Kung Fu Match that will held a few months later,he had to get battle with Cheng and his friends.
The movie that produced by Columbia Picture is better than the old movie because the story has a lot of funny moments and the setting is wonderful. I think we  should be given a thumbs for the director, Harald Zwart, because he succesed to managed the display the beauty of China besides the wall of China. But Also for May Ying character who, although not  so pretty, but she gives the nuances of China in The Karate Kid. The actress brings out this aspect of the movie beautifully. I think,some scenes in this movie that show when Dre had been hit by Cheng is little bit boring and Dre’s expression didn’t show how pain the moment.Overall,The Karate kid is the excellent movie that you should watch.The plot is nice.All of the characters are  developed so well.There’s a humor on that movie.The only one that I can say “Watch the Karate Kid”.You shouldn’t disappointed when you watch it.
