Natural Phenomena: Amazing Clouds

10:22 PM 0 Comments
Hello! Now I want tell you about Clouds. Everybody knows cloud right? But, do you know that some clouds look amazing and can turn into something that you can't believe or something that can makes you feel amazed.
Here I want to describe some of Amazing Clouds that has been make me feel really amazed!

1. Lenticularis Cloud
First I want to tell about Lenticularis Cloud. They are stationary lens-shaped clouds that from in the Tropospher, normally in perpendicular alignment to the wind direction. There are three types of lenticular clouds: altocumulus standing lenticular (ACSL), stratocumulus standing lenticular (SCSL), and cirrocumulus standing lenticular (CCSL). Because of their shape, they have been offered as an explanation for some unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings.
Pilots of powered aircraft tend to avoid flying near lenticular clouds because of the turbulence of the rotor systems that accompany them, but glider pilots actively seek them out. The precise location of the rising air mass is fairly easy to predict from the orientation of the clouds. "Wave lift" of this kind is often very smooth and strong, and enables gliders to soar to remarkable altitudes and to great distances. As of 2016 the gliding world records for both distance (over 3,000 km; 1,864 mi)[citation needed] and absolute altitude (15,460 m; 50,721 ft) were set using such lift.


2. Mammatus Cloud
Mammatus (mamma[1] or mammatocumulus), meaning "mammary cloud", is a cellular pattern of pouches hanging underneath the base of a cloud, typically cumulonimbus rainclouds, although they may be attached to other classes of parent clouds. The name mammatus is derived from the Latin mamma (meaning "udder" or "breast"). According to the WMO International Cloud Atlas, mamma is a cloud supplementary feature rather than a genus, species or variety of cloud. They are formed by cold air sinking down to form the pockets contrary to the puffs of clouds rising through the convection of warm air. These formations were first described in 1894 by William Clement Ley.


3. Polar Stratosphere Cloud
Polar stratospheric clouds or PSCs, also known as nacreous clouds (/ˈneɪkriː.əs/, from nacre, or mother of pearl, due to its iridescence), are clouds in the winter polar stratosphere at altitudes of 15,000–25,000 meters (49,000–82,000 ft). They are best observed during civil twilight when the sun is between 1 and 6 degrees below the horizon as well as in winter and in more northerly latitudes. They are implicated in the formation of ozone holes. The effects on ozone depletion arise because they support chemical reactions that produce active chlorine which catalyzes ozone destruction, and also because they remove gaseous nitric acid, perturbing nitrogen and chlorine cycles in a way which increases ozone destruction.



4. Undulatus Asperatus Cloud or Aperitas Cloud
Asperitas (formerly known as Undulatus asperatus) is a cloud formation first popularized and proposed as a type of cloud in 2009 by Gavin Pretor-Pinney of the Cloud Appreciation Society. Added to the International Cloud Atlas as a supplementary feature in March of 2017, it is the first cloud formation added since cirrus intortus in 1951. The name translates approximately as "roughness".
The clouds are closely related to undulatus clouds. Although they appear dark and storm-like, they almost always dissipate without a storm forming. The ominous-looking clouds have been particularly common in the Plains states of the United States, often during the morning or midday hours following convective thunderstorm activity.


5. Morning Glory Cloud
The Morning Glory cloud is a rare meteorological phenomenon consisting of a low-level atmospheric solitary wave and associated cloud, occasionally observed in different locations around the world. The wave often occurs as an amplitude-ordered series of waves forming bands of roll clouds.
The southern part of the Gulf of Carpentaria in Northern Australia is the only known location where it can be predicted and observed on a more or less regular basis due to the configuration of land and sea in the area.

cause:
The Morning Glory cloud is not clearly understood because its rarity means it has little significance in terms of rainfall or climate. Regardless of the complexity behind the nature of this atmospheric phenomenon, some conclusions have been made about its causes. Through research, one of the main causes of most Morning Glory occurrences is the mesoscalecirculations associated with sea breezes that develop over the peninsula and the gulf. On the large scale, Morning Glories are usually associated with frontal systems crossing central Australia and high pressure in northern Australia. Locals have noted that the Morning Glory is likely to occur when the humidity in the area is high, which provides moisture for the cloud to form, and when strong sea breezes have blown the preceding day.

6. Noctilucent Cloud
Night clouds or noctilucent clouds are tenuous cloud-like phenomena in the upper atmosphere. They are made of ice crystals and are only visible in a deep twilight. Noctilucent roughly means night shining in Latin. They are most commonly observed in the summer months at latitudes between 50° and 70° north and south of the equator. These clouds can be observed only during local summer months and when the Sun is below the horizon for the observer, but while the clouds are still in sunlight.
They are the highest clouds in Earth's atmosphere, located in the mesosphere at altitudes of around 76 to 85 kilometres (47 to 53 mi). They are too faint to be seen during daylight, and are visible only when illuminated by sunlight from below the horizon while the lower layers of the atmosphere are in the Earth's shadow. Noctilucent clouds are not fully understood and are a recently discovered meteorological phenomenon; there is no confirmed record of their observation before 1885, although they may have been observed a few decades earlier by Thomas Romney Robinson in Armagh. Doubts now surround Robinson's out-of-season records, following observations, from several points around high northern latitudes, of NLC-like phenomena following the Chelyabinsk bolide entry in February 2013 (outside the NLC season) that were in fact stratospheric dust reflections visible after sunset.
Noctilucent clouds can form only under very restricted conditions during local summer; their occurrence can be used as a sensitive guide to changes in the upper atmosphere. They are a relatively recent classification. The occurrence of noctilucent clouds appears to be increasing in frequency, brightness and extent.

News Review—Astronomers discover 7 Earth-sized planet

BBC News—Astronomers discover 7 Earth-sized planet

Astronomer have detected a record seven Earth-sized planets orbiting a single star.
The researchers says that all seven could potentially support liquid water on the surface, depending on the other properties of those planets. But, only three are within the conventional “habitable” zone where life is considered a possibility. This three planet is close enough and far enough to the star. So, the 7 planets called Earth-like planets because they look like the earth (composition, mass, and size).

The compact system of exoplanets orbits Trappist-1, a low-mass, cool star located 40 light-years away from Earth. So, if we want to go there with the rockets that we have now, it takes 700.000 years.

The planets are all close to each other and very close to the star, which is very reminiscent of the moons around Jupiter. The star is so small and cold that the seven planets are temperate, which means that they could have some liquid water and maybe life.

Many planets have been discovered in planetary systems beyond our own that it's easy to become inured to their potential significance. Nasa's latest tally is an impressive 3,449 and there's a danger of hype with each new announcement.


But the excitement around this latest discovery is not only because of its unusual scale or the fact that so many of the planets are Earth-sized. It is also because the star Trappist-1 is conveniently small and dim. This means that telescopes studying the planets are not dazzled as they would be when aiming at far brighter stars.

Movie Review : Trolls

5:27 PM 0 Comments

Trolls is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated musical adventure romantic comedy film based on the Troll dolls created by Thomas Dam. The film was directed by Mike Mitchell and co-directed by Walt Dohrn, written by Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger and based on a story by Erica Rivinoja. The film features the voices of Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, Zooey Deschanel, Russell Brand, James Corden and Gwen Stefani. The film revolves around two trolls on a quest to save their village from destruction by the Bergens, creatures who eat trolls.
The 33rd animated feature film produced by DreamWorks Animation, the film premiered on October 8, 2016, at the BFI London Film Festival and was theatrically released in the United States on November 4, 2016, by 20th Century Fox. The film received generally positive reviews from critics and has grossed over $339 million worldwide against its $125 million budget. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for "Can't Stop the Feeling!".


PLOT
The Trolls are small creatures who live in an almost perpetual state of happiness, singing, dancing, and hugging all day long. However, they are discovered by the Bergens, large creatures who never feel happy, but discover that they can feel happy for a moment, if they devour a Troll. The Bergen put the Trolls and their tree in a cage, and hold an annual festival, in which each Bergen gets its feeling of happiness, by eating a Troll. However, the Trolls, led by their King Peppy, escape through underground tunnels on the day that Prince Gristle Jr. would eat his first Troll. The furious Bergen King Gristle Sr. banishes his Chef who was in charge of the Troll preparation.
20 years later, King Peppy's daughter, the extremely happy and optimistic troll Princess Poppy, throws a big party to celebrate the Trolls' escape, despite the fears and warnings of the grey, grumpy, glum troll, Branch, that loud parties will attract the Bergens. Branch's fears become true when the banished Bergen Chef sees the fireworks and captures a number of Trolls. Poppy is among the Trolls who manage to hide, but discovers that none of the other Trolls dare to venture to Bergen Town to rescue their friends. She goes by herself, but gets trapped by several spider-like creatures. She is saved by the reluctant Branch, and together they go to Bergen Town.

Poppy and Branch discover that their friends are being guarded by the Scullery Maid Bridget, and strike a deal with her: If she frees their friends, they will help her get a date with King Gristle. While setting her up for the date, Branch reveals that he is not happy, because he caused his grandmother to be killed after Chef found him, because of his singing. After his grandmother was killed, he blamed himself, and turned from blue to grey. Later with the Trolls' advice (and hair), Bridget gets her date with Gristle (with her using the fake name "Lady Glitter Sparkles") at a roller rink and arcade restaurant, and Bridget helps the Trolls escape. However, things go wrong when Poppy and her friends try to rescue the last Troll, the Zen-like Troll Creek, who after being apparently swallowed by the young king, has been discovered being held captive in the jewel that decorates the king's mantle.
While the Trolls are successful in stealing the jewel, they are dismayed to discover that it is empty and even more shocked by being captured immediately afterward by Chef and discovering that Creek has betrayed them, to save himself. Creek returns to the Troll village where using Poppy's cowbell, he lures the other Trolls out of hiding, letting them be captured by Chef and the other Bergen cooks, who lie in ambush. With all the Trolls being put into a pot, captured and soon to be served to the Bergens, Poppy loses hope as she and all the other Trolls turn grey. Branch, despite his typical grumbling, sings for the first time since his grandmother was killed, and reveals to Poppy through song that he confesses his love for Poppy, to her surprise. She sings back, and restores his blue color while both trolls danced around the pot, they profess their love for each other, then they both share a hug.
Just before being served, the Trolls are rescued by Bridget who wants them to flee while she herself is ready to accept the Bergens' punishment for her "treason." However, Poppy does not want to abandon her Bergen friend. Together with the other Trolls, Poppy reveals that Bridget was, in fact, Lady Glitter Sparkles, and that, for being happy, it is not necessary to eat Trolls as the feeling that Bridget and the King had on their date was happiness too.

The Trolls invite the Bergen to sing and dance with them, making the gray creatures feel the happiness that was already inside them, that they just needed help to access. The vengeful Chef, who sees her position at court jeopardized, tries to kill the Trolls. Before she can do so, she is knocked into the serving cart by a well-aimed spoon, by Bridget. Together with Creek who was still in her pouch, DJ Suki and Smidge squirt lemons at Chef's eyes, Chef gets tripped by Satin and Chenille, and Chef rolls out of the castle with the cart set on fire by Cooper.
In the end, the Trolls live in peace with the happy Bergens, Poppy is crowned their new queen, she and Branch both share a romantic hug.

In the mid-credits, the serving cart with a burnt Chef and Creek on it stopping on a hill in the middle of nowhere. Chef tries to eat Creek until he stops her, and they both get eaten by a hill-shaped monster.

QUESTION






Turritopsis dohrnii

6:54 AM 0 Comments
Hello everyone! Have you ever heard about the immortal jellyfish? If your answer is no, then I will introduce its special ability and a part of its life to you!

Turritopsis dohrnii is a biologically immortal jellyfish. They originate from the Mediterranean Sea as this immortal jellyfish prefer warmer waters, but some are also found in cold waters. Their diet consists of plankton, fish eggs, and small mollusks. There is no answer to the oldest immortal jellyfish. None of it has been observed in a laboratory in an extended period of time. But one certain fact is they do die.
 Turritopsis dohrnii
Turritopsis dohrnii’s life started with fertilisation. In this step, eggs and sperm released by mature jellyfish meet. Then it will grow into a planula, the free swimming tiny larvae that is a bit like a miniature flattened pear. This planula will attach itself to a solid surface, the planula develops a mouth and tentacles. And then it turns into a polyp. Adult Turritopsis dohrnii can return to this stage of development through cell transdifferentiation. After that, it turns into budding polyp. The polyp reproduces asexsually by dividing in half repeatedly to produce genetically identical copies. And then it grows into ephyra. Segments detach from the polyp and drift off into the sea. The seventh step is juvenile. Over a few weeks or months, the young Jellyfish matures into an adult. It reaches sexual maturity, the Turritopsis dohrnii jellyfish has the option of reverting to the polyp stage.

The Life  Cycle of Turritopsis dohrnii

It has two shapes of body during its life, the medusae and the polyp. The medusae of T. dohrnii is bell-shaped with a diameter of about 4.5 mm. the jelly in its wall is thin except for some thickening at the apex. The bright red part of the body is the stomach which walls are also the gonads of female medusae, used for the development of eggs. In this phase, it uses tenteacles to swim. Young specimens of T. dohrnii have 8 tentacles while adult have 80 until 90 tentacles. Its other stage of life is the polyp form or hydroid. It consists of stolons and upright branches that can absorb food and produce medusae buds.

The Medusae of Turritopsis dohrnii

When it is injured or starving it will attach itself to a surface in warm water and turn into a sort of living blob. It is called transdifferentiation. Transdifferentiation is a process wherein cells will turn into different kinds of cells. For example, muscle cells can turn into egg or sperm cells, and nerve cells turn into muscle cells. This transformation powers that have never been seen and unmatched in the animal kingdom.

Even though T. dohrnii is biologically immortal, they won’t be able to populate the whole earth since they can be eaten by predators. Moreover, transdifferentiation can only be started if they have reached maturity. If they starve or get sick as polyps, they don’t regenerate and therefore they die. 


Its cell development method of transdifferentiation has inspired scientists to find a way to make stem cells using this process for renewing damaged or dead tissue in humans.


That's all about Turritopsis dohrnii, are you interested to find one?

Thank you for reading! :))

AMANDA'S Birthday❣

3:02 AM 0 Comments
Hello everybodyyy!👋 Today I will tell you about my friend's birthday. Her name is Amanda Mirasherly. And her birthday is on October 24th 2016. Yes, I know, this is a latepost. I've been so busy hehe.😋

In Monday (october 24th), my friends(adila, nadillah, sylva, and bara) and I, had been prepared all the things for Amanda's birthday. We planned that we will suprising her after school. But, all the teachers tell us that we must watching the closing of Peparnas 2016. So, we can't suprising her today.

PEPARNAS 2016
After we watched the closing of Peparnas, we went to BIP (Bandung Indah Plaza) and gave Amanda a flower! She looked so happy. But, I know, she's hoping that we gave her more than this.

We planned again, that we will suprising her on Tuesday. But, unfortunatelly, Amanda must do a Piano test. So, we can't suprising her again.😢

Andd FINALLYYY!! On wednesday, we CAN suprising her.
First, we prepared to suprising her after school. We go to BIP to bought a Dino Donuts, a gift, and a candles!







In school, Amanda and Nadillah will go for Lintas Minat. So, it's the good time for us to prepared at class. We put the ballons and the gift on the floor, and we go to the back, and hiding. After waiting for a minute, finally Amanda and Nadillah come to the class. Amanda is really shocked to see that, and then we jump and run to Amanda with the donuts in our hands while sang happy birthday song to Amanda. She looked so happy.

After that, we take a picture, and go to Daniel.

Well guysss, that is the story of Amanda's birthday supriseee!
After that, we celebrate it again in Sushi Tei on 4 November 2016. wohooo!
