When my mother and I went to her house, we were shocked finding her lying on the floor. She had a leg fracture. The house were very messy. Her maid just returned to her village and Mrs. Marsono’s ten year old twin daughters were too sick to clean that big house as they were got flu. So, my mother helped cook and clean the house. I helped to take care of the twins giving the medicines to them. I wiped their bodies with wet towels. My father helped vacuum the house. The whole week was spent to help the Mrs. Marsono and her twin daughters. It was really sad and touched to see the condition as she just lived with her two daughters. Her husband passed away when the twins were still six years old. That was how I spent the last term school holiday. My parents said when someone needs our help, we have to help them first as much as we can. We could always go for a holiday some other time. It was a valuable experience for me and I felt happy for that.

Planting a tree is not as simple as just digging a hole and throwing the tree in it. If you want the tree you are planting to survive and thrive, here's what to do. Steps 1. Select the right time of year; do not plant in late dry season because the heat will stress the plant and may cause it to die. The best time to plant a tree is at the beginning of the wet season. 2. Choose a suitable tree for the region, climate, and space. 3. Prepare the hole. Take a suitable shovel and dig a hole that is 2-3 times the width of the root ball. 4. Place the tree into the hole gently – do not throw or drop it. 5. Use some composted manure if needed. Avoid using a commercial fertilizer; it tends to over boost the tree and make it less likely to do well over the long term. 6. Water the newly planted tree; then cover the planting hole with shredded hardwood or leaf mulch; and water it again. 7. After the planting is finished come back in about an hour and water one more time. 8. Stake the tree if necessary, for about the first year. Staking protects the tree against blowing over in the wind.

They frolicked in the sands and ate mussels, clams and other small sea creatures. One day the mother crab saw a beautiful crane walking about in the sand, a straight graceful walk in its long reed-like legs. "How graceful that crane looks," she thought to herself. Then she caught sight of her son waddling towards her and felt very irritated. "And how clumsy my son is. He is like a moving sack." "Why do you walk like that?" she snapped, when he came nearer. "Instead of this awkward one-sided gait, use your 10 legs to walk straight. And gracefully," she added. "How do I walk straight mother?" asked the bewildered little crab. "I have only known to walk like this." But his mother insisted he could walk straight, and it would not be too difficult if he tried. So the little crab tried, and failed. "Why don't you show me how to walk straight, mother?" he told her. "If you show me the straightway, I'm sure I will catch on." So the mother tried to show her son how to do the straight walk, but no matter how hard she tried, she could not. Her legs did not seem to be suited to walking straight. "I give up," she said, panting after several unsuccessful attempts. "Forget it child, I don't think nature intended for us to duplicate the crane's walk."

Because the gas in nebulae is used to make new stars, and dying stars create nebulae from their gas. While stars are made of very hot, dense gas, the gas in nebulae is cool and spread out. Water is at least 1,000,000,000,000,000 times as dense as the gas found in nebulae.

Nebulae come in a variety of shapes. But their appearance is usually due to the type of energy source which is lighting them up. There is lot of gas that we can't see in the Galaxy. Something must happen for the nebulae to reveal themselves. So, what happens to make nebulae glow? It depends on the type of nebulae. Some are involved in the formation of new stars. These are stellar nurseries called HII regions. The young stars found in HII regions are extremely hot and provide a lot of energy for lighting up nebulae. Some nebulae are created by dying stars: supernova remnants and the planetary nebulae surrounding white dwarfs.

Gym, a shortened form of gymnasium, refers to facilities intended for indoor sports and exercise. Originating in Ancient Greece, where they included both academic and physical training, gymnasiums today are common places of physical education and exercise around the world. In certain countries, particularly Germany, the intellectual education has been retained in secondary schools with this name. For young children play has been recognized as a valuable, even essential, component of learning and psychological development. The gymnasium is thus a valuable asset for any community, assisting in the development of youth. Adults too benefit greatly from physical exercise and training, since sports and physical fitness involve more than training the body but is based on the understanding that fitness and physical training helps the mind. In that sense, the original purpose of the ancient Greek gymnasium continues to be fulfilled in the modern gym. The gymnasium is a place where training in this way can be undertaken by people of all ages in a structured and safe environment. The word gymnasium is derived from the Greek. Today the term gymnasium (plural: gymnasiums or gymnasia) is used in the sense of a sports facility. Gyms today are multiuse facilities, offering a range of sporting and physical activities, alongside such things as massages, and other things usually attributed to a health spa. Gym also can refer informally to a physical education course in American students' parlance, and to a metal frame support used in outdoor play equipment, as in "jungle gym."
