The clip confronting carl about skull island from King kong (2005) with Jack Black, Thomas Kretschmann We're close. Turn southwest. There's no land southwest for thousands of miles. It takes us way outside the shipping lanes. I won't sail blind in these waters. I'll make it worth your while. There's nothing out there. Well, then you've nothing to lose. If someone were to tell you this ship was headed for Singapore... what would you say? I would say they're full of it, Mr Hayes. Well, we turned southwest last night. Gentlemen, please. We're not looking for trouble. No. You're looking for something else. Yes, we are. We're going to find Skull Island. Find it, film it, and show it to the world. For 25 cents, you get to see the last blank space on the map. I wouldn't be so sure of that. What do you mean? Seven years ago, me and Mr Hayes were working our passage... on a Norwegian bark. We picked up a castaway. We found him in the water. He'd been drifting for days. His ship had run aground on an island way west of Sumatra. An island hidden in fog. He spoke of a huge wall... built so long ago... no one knew who'd made it. A wall 100 foot high... as strong today as it was ages ago. Why'd they build the wall?

The clip Coffee's origin from The Bucket List (2007) with Jack Nicholson Listen, um... don't mind my asking... ...what is that contraption you got over there? It's a siphon. Makes coffee. What else does it do? What else does it have to do? Did you know that coffee was originally discovered by a shepherd in Ethiopia? You don't say. It's true. Seems his goats were eating berries from an unfamiliar bush. Before long, they were running and jumping all over... ...having a gay old time. So the shepherd took some of the branches to the local monastery... ...where the abbots decided to roast them. When the berries burned... ...the beans inside gave off such a pleasant aroma... ...they brewed them into a stew. Stew, huh? And over the next few hundred years, it spread to Arabia, Europe... ...even Sumatra, like that hooch you got over there. It's called Kopi Luwak. I know what it's called. You do? Never catch me drinking that shit. Have you ever tried it? No. I'm more of a instant-coffee man. Here, here we are. Thanks. No problem. There you are. You always had those freckles? Far as I know. Nice... ...freckles. Hmm.

The clip A chicken farm from The Egg and I (1947) Everyone of them laying eggs all day long. What would we do with that many eggs? We'd sell them! Those we don't keep for incubating. Incubating? Darling, I bought a chicken farm. A chicken farm? It's the most wonderful place you can possibly imagine. It's situated high up in the mountains. Miles from everywhere, 40 beautiful acres. That sounds fine. We'll go there every weekend. Every weekend? Honey, we're gonna live there all the time! We're gonna raise chickens. Are we? You bet we are. You have no idea what a fascinating little devil a chicken can be. There must be over 100 varieties. Australorps, Dorkings. Leghorns... twelve different kinds of them. The New Hampshire Red, the Rhode Island Red. The Light Brahma, the Black Sumatra, theJersey White Giant. The Plymouth Rock, the Barbrock. There are millions of them. Take the average White Leghorn that lays 150 to 250 eggs a year. We'll say she costs between $2.25 and $2.50 to raise... They all right back there? Oh, they're fine. They love it.

*******www.chateagratis****/videos Todos recordamos el Tsunami de 2004 que arrasó Tailandia, Sumatra, Indonesia y otras regiones de Asia causando la escalofriante cifra de 275.000 muertos, pero ese no ha sido el primer Tsunami del que se tiene noticia en la historia, y seguramente no será el último. Pero ¿qué es un Tsunami? Se le llama así a las olas de gran tamaño y gran poder destructivo que asolan una región del mundo y que son producidas por grandes movimientos de tierra en los océanos. Muchas veces los efectos de un terremoto y los de un Tsunami se combinan en su poder destructor, por lo que a lo largo de la historia los registros de sus devastadores efectos se confunden. Esto se debe a que ambos fenómenos están muy relacionados. Cuando se produce un movimiento muy grande de una masa que sacude las aguas del océano es cuando se generan estas olas de enorme tamaño. La mayor parte de las veces, estas sacudidas que recibe el mar son producidas por terremotos, aunque otras veces son causadas por erupciones de volcanes, desplazamientos tectónicos e incluso, en teoría, la caída de meteoritos en el océano o las explosiones atómicas pueden causar las temidas olas conocidas como maremotos o Tsunami. En cuanto a los lugares donde más frecuentemente tienen lugar, estos fenómenos tan devastadores se producen en su mayor parte en el Océano Pacífico (debido a que es la mayor extensión de agua del planeta) y afectan fundamentalmente las costas de Asia, las islas de esa región del mundo y la costa oeste de América. Ahora bien, en la mayoría de las ocasiones las olas que se produce son de proporciones menores y no causan daños importantes, ya sea porque el terremoto que las originó fue de baja intensidad o porque la energía de la ola se disipa a lo largo del mar abierto. Sin embargo, a lo largo de la historia del hombre han ocurridos por lo menos otras tres catástrofes similares al Tsunami del 2004. Uno de los mayores maremotos de los que se tiene registro fue el ocurrido en 1883 a raíz de la erupción del volcán de Krakatoa. Esta erupción provocó olas de más de 40 metros que asolaron las costa de Java y Sumatra. La cifra de muertos en esa ocasión superó a las 30.000 víctimas. Otro de los mayores Tsunami de la historia fue el que se estima ocurrió en Grecia en el año 1490 a.C. causado por la erupción del volcán Santorini. De hecho, se cree haya sido el responsable de la desaparición de la civilización minoica de la antigua Grecia. Recientemente, en 1958 la caída de una gran roca en Lituya Bay en Alaska causó una ola de 520 metros de altura (la mayor de la que se tiene registro). Pero el hecho de que se tratara de una región poco poblada y que la ola haya tenido espacio para disipar su energía hizo que su poder destructivo no tuviera consecuencias tan graves en víctimas humanas como han tenido otros maremotos. Sin duda los Tsunami son una de las manifestaciones más destructivas de la naturaleza y un fenómeno ante el que el hombre poco puede hacer. La imposibilidad de predecir con exactitud cuándo se producirá uno, así como el escaso poder de respuesta que se tiene ante un fenómeno de estas características, hacen que sean una posibilidad más que perturbadora, sobre todo, teniendo en cuenta que todo hace pensar que los Tsunami seguirán ocurriendo

Tiger: The tiger is the largest member of the cat family, with the Amur (Siberian) tiger weighing as much as 360 kg (790 lb). Although it is found in a variety of habitats, the tiger always requires dense vegetative cover, an adequate supply of large ungulate prey, and access to a reliable source of water. The principal prey of the tiger consists of various species of deer and wild pigs, usually in the 50 - 200 kg (110 - 440 lb) range. These include sambar, chital, swamp deer, red deer, rusa deer and wild boar. It will also take young elephants and rhinos and smaller species such as monkeys, birds, reptiles and fish. Tigers are generally diurnal or crepuscular where they are undisturbed, but they become nocturnal in disturbed habitats or near human settlements. They do not readily cross large open areas. Although tigers are usually solitary (except for females with cubs), males and females exhibit a high degree of social tolerance towards one another. A male tiger usually establishes a territory that does not overlap with the territories of other males but does overlap the territories of 2 - 3 females (up to 7). Females establish territories that generally (but not always) do not overlap each other. The range of an individual tiger can vary from 50 sq km (20 sq mi) in an area with high prey densities (e.g. some reserves in India) to 4000 sq km (1500 sq mi) in Siberia. The tiger formerly occurred from Turkey across southern Asia and most of China, to the Soviet Far East. The Southeast Asian range included peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Sumatra, Java and Bali. But the abundance and distribution of tigers has diminished substantially since the beginning of the 20th century. 3 of the 8 subspecies of tiger, the Bali, Caspian and Javan tigers, have become extinct since the 1950's. Currently, the tiger occurs only in scattered populations from India to Vietnam and in Indonesia (Sumatra), the Russian Far East, and possibly in China and North Korea. The tiger is extinct in most of its former range. Commercial poaching (especially to obtain various parts of the tiger's body for Oriental medicine), a declining prey base, and loss of habitat are the principal threats to the tiger at present.

The clip The truth about Skull Island from King kong (2005) with Colin Hanks, Andy Serkis. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film. I wouldn't be so sure of that. What do you mean? Seven years ago, me and Mr Hayes were working our passage... on a Norwegian bark. We picked up a castaway. We found him in the water. He'd been drifting for days. His ship had run aground on an island way west of Sumatra. An island hidden in fog. He spoke of a huge wall... built so long ago... no one knew who'd made it. A wall 100 foot high... as strong today as it was ages ago. Why'd they build the wall? Well, the castaway, he spoke of a creature... neither beast nor man... but something monstrous, living behind that wall. A lion or a tiger. A man-eater. That's how all these stories start. What else did he say? Nothing. We found him the next morning. He'd stuck a knife through his heart. Sorry, fellows. You'll have to do better than that. Monsters belong in B movies. If you find this place... if you go ashore with your friends and your cameras... you won't come back. Just as long as you understand that.

Conservation Efforts: Poaching for fur and destruction of habitat have greatly reduced tiger populations in the wild. At the start of the 20th century, it is estimated there were over 100,000 tigers in the world but the population has dwindled to between 1,500 and 3,500 in the wild. Some estimates suggest that there are less than 2,500 mature breeding individuals, with no subpopulation containing more than 250 mature breeding individuals. India: India is home to the world's largest population of tigers in the wild. According to the World Wildlife Fund, of the 3,500 tigers around the world, 1,400 are found in India. Only 11% of original Indian tiger habitat remains, and it is becoming significantly fragmented and often degraded. A major concerted conservation effort, known as Project Tiger, has been underway since 1973, initially spearheaded by Indira Gandhi. The fundamental accomplishment has been the establishment of over 25 well-monitored tiger reserves in reclaimed land where human development is categorically forbidden. The program has been credited with tripling the number of wild Bengal tigers from roughly 1,200 in 1973 to over 3,500 in the 1990s. However, a tiger census carried out in 2007, whose report was published on February 12, 2008, stated that the wild tiger population in India declined by 60% to approximately 1,411. It is noted in the report that the decrease of tiger population can be attributed directly to poaching. Following the release of the report, the Indian government pledged $153 million to further fund the Project Tiger initiative, set-up a Tiger Protection Force to combat poachers, and fund the relocation of up to 200,000 villagers to minimise human-tiger interaction. Additionally, eight new tiger reserves in India were set up. Indian officials successfully started a project to reintroduce the tigers into the Sariska Tiger Reserve. The Ranthambore National Park is often cited as a major success by Indian officials against poaching. In 2011 the census found 1,706 tigers Page text. Tigers Forever is a collaboration between the Wildlife Conservation Society and Panthera Corporation to serve as both a science-based action plan and a business model to ensure that tigers live in the wild forever. Initial field sites of Tigers Forever include the world's largest tiger reserve, the 21,756 km² Hukaung Valley in Myanmar, the Western Ghats in India, Thailand's Huai Khai Khaeng-Thung Yai protected areas, and other sites in Laos PDR, Cambodia, the Russian Far East and China covering approximately 260,000 km2 of critical tiger habitat. Russia: The Siberian tiger was on the brink of extinction with only about 40 animals in the wild in the 1940s. Under the Soviet Union, anti-poaching controls were strict and a network of protected zones (zapovedniks) were instituted, leading to a rise in the population to several hundred. Poaching again became a problem in the 1990s, when the economy of Russia collapsed, local hunters had access to a formerly sealed off lucrative Chinese market, and logging in the region increased. While an improvement in the local economy has led to greater resources being invested in conservation efforts, an increase of economic activity has led to an increased rate of development and deforestation. The major obstacle in preserving the species is the enormous territory individual tigers require (up to 450 km2 needed by a single female and more for a single male). Current conservation efforts are led by local governments and NGO's in consort with international organisations, such as the World Wide Fund and the Wildlife Conservation Society. The competitive exclusion of wolves by tigers has been used by Russian conservationists to convince hunters in the Far East to tolerate the big cats, as they limit ungulate populations less than wolves, and are effective in controlling the latter's numbers. Currently, there are about 400--550 animals in the wild. .

Abu Abdullah Muhammad Ibn Battuta, also known as Shams ad - Din, was born at Tangier, Morocco, on the 24th February 1304 C.E. (703 Hijra). He left Tangier on Thursday, 14th June, 1325 C.E. (2nd Rajab 725 A.H.), when he was twenty one years of age. His travels lasted for about thirty years, after which he returned to Fez, Morocco at the court of Sultan Abu 'Inan and dictated accounts of his journeys to Ibn Juzay. These are known as the famous Travels (Rihala) of Ibn Battuta. He died at Fez in 1369 C.E. Ibn Battuta was the only medieval traveller who is known to have visited the lands of every Muslim ruler of his time. He also travelled in Ceylon (present Sri Lanka), China and Byzantium and South Russia. The mere extent of his travels is estimated at no less than 75,000 miles, a figure which is not likely to have been surpassed before the age of steam. In the course of his first journey, Ibn Battuta travelled through Algiers, Tunis, Egypt, Palestine and Syria to Makkah. After visiting Iraq, Shiraz and Mesopotamia he once more returned to perform the Hajj at Makkah and remained there for three years. Then travelling to Jeddah he went to Yemen by sea, visited Aden andset sail for Mombasa, East Africa. After going up to Kulwa he came back to Oman and repeated pilgrimage to Makkah in 1332 C.E. via Hormuz, Siraf, Bahrain and Yamama. Subsequently he set out with the purpose of going to India, but on reaching Jeddah, he appears to have changed his mind (due perhaps to the unavailability of a ship bound for India), and revisited Cairo, Palestine and Syria, thereafter arriving at Aleya (Asia Minor) by sea and travelled across Anatolia and Sinope. He then crossed the Black Sea and after long wanderings he reached Constantinople through Southern Ukraine. On his return, he visited Khurasan through Khawarism (Khiva) and having visited all the important cities such as Bukhara, Balkh, Herat, Tus, Mashhad and Nishapur, he crossed the Hindukush mountains via the 13,000 ft Khawak Pass into Afghanistan and passing through Ghani and Kabul entered India. After visiting Lahri (near modern Karachi), Sukkur, Multan, Sirsa and Hansi, he reached Delhi. For several years Ibn Battuta enjoyed the patronage of Sultan Mohammad Tughlaq, and was later sent as Sultan's envoy to China. Passing through Cental India and Malwa he took ship from Kambay for Goa, and after visiting many thriving ports along the Malabar coast he reached the Maldive Islands, from which he crossed to Ceylon. Continuing his journey, he landed on the Ma'bar (Coromandal) coast and once more returning to the Maldives he finally set sail for Bengal and visited Kamrup, Sylhet and Sonargaon (near Dhaka). Sailing along the Arakan coast he came to Sumatra and later landed at Canton via Malaya and Cambodia. In China he travelled northward to Peking through Hangchow. Retracing his steps he returned to Calicut and taking ship came to Dhafari and Muscat, and passing through Paris (Iran), Iraq, Syria, Palestine and Egypt made his seventh and last pilgrimage to Makkah in November 1348 C.E. and then returned to his home town of Fez. His travels did not end here - he later visited Muslim Spain and the lands of the Niger across the Sahara. For more info: ***********/artl/ibn_battuta.shtml

Komisi III DPR mendesak Polri membentuk tim investigasi kasus dugaan pembantaian warga di Kabupaten Mesuji, Lampung; dan Kecamatan Mesuji, Ogan Komering Ilir, Sumatra Selatan. Tragedi itu, seperti terlihat dalam video yang kini beredar luas, terlihat sangat mengerikan. Anggota Komisi III Ahmad Yani mengatakan, peristiwa di dua Mesuji tak berprikemanusiaan. "Mengerikan sekali," kata dia. "Polri harus segera mengusut kasus ini." Kapolri Jenderal Polisi Timur Pradopo mengatakan, polisi tak diam. Bahkan, kata dia, dua kasus itu sudah masuk tahap peradilan. Menurut Kapolri, pemicu dua kasus itu sama: sengketa lahan perkebunan sawit antara penduduk dengan perusahaan sawit. Menurut Timur, kasus di Kecamatan Mesuji, Ogan Komering Ilir, menewaskan tujuh orang. Masing-masing lima warga dan dua pengamanan swakarsa yang dibentuk perusahaan. Polisi menetapkan enam tersangka dalam kasus ini. Sementara kasus Kabupaten Mesuji, Lampung, menewaskan seorang warga. Pembantain warga di Mesuji berawal dari niat PT Silva Inhutani meluaskan lahan sejak 2003. Mereka memakai cara-cara kekerasan. Perusahaan yang berdiri pada 1997 itu terus menyerobot lahan warga untuk ditanami kelapa sawit dan karet.(ICH)
