Social Media are Bad for Teenagers
Social media Web sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many others
have become nearly inescapable facets of modern life, particularly for teenagers.
Social media is becoming more than just a part of their world, it’s becoming their
world. Teens are spending more and more time online, usually on a social media
platform like Facebook or Twitter. Most teens now have smart phones where they
are on social media networks all throughout the day. They are constantly texting,
tweeting, and posting pictures via Snapchat and Instagram. However, hyperconnected to social media could be bad for them.
Today teens don’t know how to disconnect. Social media has allowed them to take
their life online from the time they wake up till they back to sleep via their smart
phone. One reason this “always connected” activity is harmful is because of the
alarming trend of cyberbullying. Bullying has now moved from not only being in the
school and on the bus, but online. What does this mean? If a teen is getting bullied,
they cannot get away from it! The people bullying them simply continue their bullying
via social media
A new study has found that teenagers who engage with social media during the night
could be damaging their sleep and increasing their risk of anxiety and depression.
Teenagers spoke about the pressure they felt to make themselves available 24/7,
and the resulting anxiety if they did not respond immediately to texts or posts. Teens
are so emotionally invested in social media that a fifth of secondary school pupils will
wake up at night and log on, just to make sure they don’t miss out.
Another impact social media has had on teens is teens being more comfortable
online doing things that they should be more sensitive to doing. A separate study by
the National Citizen Service found that, rather than talking to their parents, girls seek
comfort on social media when they are worried. The survey also suggests that girls
are likely to experience stress more often than boys – an average of twice a week.
Social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and many others are basically
created to connect everyone around the globe so they can interact and communicate
each other. However, too much exposure of social media can also be bad especially
for teenagers. As it mentioned above, social media could become media for bullying,
risk them of anxiety and depression, and risk their real-life social interaction.
Therefore, social media are dangerous for teenagers’ health both mentally and

The emergence of the internet has given internet entrepreneurs many ways to make
money. Writers are one group that have benefited from their talents as a result in the
rise of internet based jobs.
Blog writing is an increasingly popular way to earn money online determined by the

Career in Translation
Functionally, translation is transferring the message or the meaning and not the word.
According to Nida, such translation is called dynamic equivalence translation. It tries
to bring the precise message in different language.
Many people like to watch Hollywood movie but many get trouble in understanding to
the actors' dialogue. So the way they get the understanding about the movie is
reading the translating text running. If Hindi translation is provided, it will bring the
better understanding for Indian moviegoer. Hollywood movie spread over other Asia
countries. Therefore, Arabic translation, Indonesian translation and Farsi translation
are widely needed and that is a big chance for English master in that countries.
India is likely being an English speaking country. India translation will grow better
and. It seems Indonesia, Malaysia and Filipina will reach that mark too soon.
Translation job will be great in amount and that is good development for translating
job seekers.
Why is It Important to Choose the Accredited School?
Most of teenagers need to go to school and there are a lot ofschools over there.
Nowadays, schools grow to offer plenty of choice; private and state ones. However it
is a hard choice since there are many factors which need to be considered before
making the selection. Some will be influenced by friends; because some friend got to
certain school than we go to there too. Some prefer to choose certain school because
ofthe closer distance. In fact, the primary decisive matter for selecting school is
whether the school has been accredited or not.
an accredited school?
accredited schools have
This label of Accredited School has an impact inemployment opportunities. As result,
if there are two or morestudents with similar qualifications, the student who comes
from the accredited school will have an edge over the other candidate. Student from
an accredited school has more open door than student with an accredited one.
Many students select certain school depending more on short term factors like
friend influence and short distance from home. It is not bad since commuting
actually needs much cost. Choosing school which is closer to home will save time,
energy and money. However if that school is not accredited, the time and money
spent along studying seems to be waste in the long term because it could become a
limiting factor in gaining future opportunities.
Accredited school is not the only factor which will drive student’s success.
Personality and characterization are very important too. However a student with
good personality who comes from an accredited school is better than the others
Mengapa hal itu penting untuk memilih sekolah terakreditasi?
Kebanyakan remaja perlu pergi ke sekolah dan ada banyak sekolah di sana. Saat ini, sekolah tumbuh untuk
menawarkan banyak pilihan; orang-orang pribadi dan negara bagian. Namun ini adalah pilihan sulit karena ada
banyak faktor yang perlu dipertimbangkan sebelum membuat pilihan. Beberapa akan dipengaruhi oleh temanteman; karena beberapa teman mendapat ke sekolah tertentu dari kita pergi ke sana juga. Beberapa lebih suka
memilih sekolah tertentu karena ofthe lebih dekat. Bahkan, masalah menentukan utama untuk memilih sekolah
adalah apakah sekolah telah terakreditasi atau tidak.
Mengapa penting untuk memilih sekolah yang terakreditasi? Yah, sekolah tinggi Chiropractic memiliki tepi atas
sekolah unaccredited. Label ini sekolah terakreditasi memiliki dampak kesempatan kerja. Sebagai hasilnya, jika
ada dua atau lebih mahasiswa dengan kualifikasi serupa, mahasiswa yang berasal dari sekolah yang
terakreditasi akan memiliki tepi atas kandidat lain. Siswa dari sekolah yang terakreditasi mempunyai pintu
terbuka lebih daripada siswa dengan satu terakreditasi.
Banyak siswa memilih sekolah tertentu lebih tergantung pada faktor-faktor jangka pendek seperti teman
pengaruh dan jauh dari rumah. Hal ini tidak buruk karena komuter benar-benar membutuhkan banyak biaya.
Memilih sekolah yang lebih dekat ke rumah akan menghemat waktu, tenaga dan uang. Namun jika itu tidak
terakreditasi, waktu dan uang yang dihabiskan sepanjang belajar tampaknya limbah dalam jangka panjang
karena dapat menjadi faktor pembatas dalam memperoleh peluang di masa depan.
Sekolah terakreditasi bukanlah satu-satunya faktor yang akan mendorong keberhasilan siswa. Kepribadian dan
karakterisasi juga sangat penting. Namun seorang mahasiswa dengan kepribadian yang baik yang berasal dari
sekolah yang terakreditasi lebih baik daripada yang lain
Corruption has happened for many years and today it becomes a bad culture in Indonesia for
Most adult Indonesian or foreigners have known and admitted that corruptions happen in
many places. The daily newspapers, news programs on TV and radio have reported
corruptions are done everywhere, almost in all departments or public services of this country.
Corruptions happen in health, education departments and banks. When we manage to get
some documents in public service offices, we usually need much money to pay.
The actions to eliminate corruption are weak. The ever stronger culture seems not to come to
an end when the responsible institutions who have to reinforce the justice today commit
corruption. This is the worst. Corruptions happen in police department, courts where judges,
public prosecutors, lawyers make deals to do corruption. All of us also heard in the end of
2004, Probosutejo reported that he had bribed the Supreme Court, or called Mahkamah
Agung which becomes the highest level where the justice can be obtained. Perhaps you have
to try to come to the local courts and see what happen there. You will see practices of bribery
and other kinds of corruption. Therefore, we can say that corruptions becomes our culture.
The citizens have no goodwill to fight against the corruption. They create the situations in
which people have opportunities to do corruptions. The citizens like to break the rules
because they are not disciplined. For example, in the street when they drive a car or ride
motorcycle, they do not have the driving license or necessary documents. Then, they are
caught by the local policemen. To avoid more difficulties, they like to bribe the officer. The
officer let them go then. In other words, the citizens and officers are the same, doing
corruption together. If only the people were critical, disciplined, and obey the rules, and
willing to report any wrong behaviors, this country will not be number one corrupting
Conclusion Based on the reasons, we can conclude that corruption is becoming a bad culture
in Indonesia if it is not ended soon by all of us. It seems that there must be more severe
penalty for the Corruptors. Do we still care about the future of this country?
Seeking Job is Difficult, isn't?*
I think many people want to get a good job which they want. But they can not realize it. They
know that it is difficult to get it but the other people disagree with this argument. Some
people think there are mainly three things why seeking a job is difficult.
Firstly, people do not have high education. As they do not have high education, it is difficult
for them to get it. Besides, education may influence someone who seeks a job. Now in the
globalization era, without having high education, people can not find a good job. Take for
example in a big company. If we want to apply a job like a staff manager, we must fulfill all
general requirements such as you must be good at accounting, able to operate computer,
master foreign language especially English both spoken and written etc. Seeking a job is not
always difficult but it depends on people themselves. If they want to try, they will be success.
Secondly, people do not have skills. If they do not have skills, they will feel difficult to find a
good job. Some people think that if they want to be an employee, they must have skills. It is
not only enough skill but also high education. In a company, an employee must fulfill all
general requirements such as having good skill, high education and motivation, discipline etc.
Without having skills, it is impossible to be an employee. For example, most people in our
country, Indonesia, are jobless. It is caused by them who do not have skills and education.
They say that Indonesia government does not open job vacancies. but in fact, their arguments
are not true because in our country there are many job vacancies. If we can not get a job, we
will be left behind in the globalization era.
Thirdly, they do not have connection or network. It is rather difficult to get a job if we do not
have connection. Even though we have high education and skills, without having connection
or network, we will not get it. So connection or network is very important to help us to get a
job. Further, we can get it easily. For example, If we have friends and they work in a
company. They may be help us to apply in that company. They also give us more information
about the job. For example sometimes it needs new employee who can operate computer,
master English well and good at accounting. If we fulfill those requirements, we can be an
employee in that company. It is our golden chance to apply that job.
From the facts above, it is obvious that seeking a job is rather difficult if we do not have high
education, skills and connection or network.

The Dangerous of Using Drugs
Everybody must pay attention of drugs. Drugs are very dangerous for us. Why
it is very dangerous for us? Because its can caused harm to our body.
In terms of health, many organs in our body can be harm because using drug.
In general, the impact of using drug are can unconscious, make us hallucinate, can
harm our nerve, and cause addictive effect. Beside that, using drugs can make the
users depressed, liver disease, schizophrenia, blockage of blood vessels, dehydration,
optic nerve damage, brain damage, and finally it can cause DEATH!
When viewed in terms of Islamic law, drugs are forbidden. Because it is cause
badness, self harm, debilitate. And Islam proscribes all that can cause badness, self
harm because it is included zhalim. Also if we using drugs, it means we already do
the forbidden things in Islam, it means we sin. So, in terms of Islamic law, using
drugs also dangerous.
Furthermore, if the users of drugs are teenagers, it can endanger their future,
and endanger their homeland, their country. From the data, 32 percent of drugs
users in Indonesia are teenagers, so, if many teenagers –in this case Indonesia- use
drugs, it can be endanger this country, harm youth generation, whereas youths are
nation expectation. If the youth using drugs, our nation can be destroy!
So, from now on we must pay attention of drugs, because it’s very dangerous,
both in terms of health, religion (Islam), nationality and state.
The Power of Music in our life
Do you agree that music is important in our life? Yes I do, music has certain role
completing our day to day activities. Here are some reasons why music is heard
everywhere andanywhere. Music is a way to express feelings. When we fall in love, the
kind of music we’d listen to would be all about love. When we’re sad, we would go for
music that is melancholic in nature and immerse ourselves in the sadness. When
we’re happy, we’d choose songs with happy tunes too.
Song can help to memorize the last experiences. A favorite song is a powerful
documentary. People with Alzheimer which are impaired the brain would remember
details about songs they were familiar with. For example, an elderly woman who
couldn’t even remember her husband’s name wouldremember the details of her favorite
song; when it was played, how it made her feel and things about the song that made
it especially memorable for her.
Further, music can unite people for a cause and changes the world. A song
with good lyric and striking deep chord can stimulate the universal feeling of all people.
We can see it in the case of the famous and legendary Michael Jacson's Heal the
World. It can arouse humanism of a lot people in this world.So what would the world
be like without music? It would be lonely.
Public Transportation should be Free
If we can agree that government has some role to play in our lives, then let’s at least make it a
positive one. Consider the benefits of free, fully-subsidized public transportation.
First, it will motivate more people to leave their cars at home. Think of the reduction in
pollution and traffic jam and insurance costs due to accidents. Greener cities, safer cities,
more livable cities. More room for parks and trees. Think of the money we’ll all save by
consuming less gas, spending less frequently on car repairs, and so on. That money will stay
in our wallets and we could then turn around and give the economy a boost by spending it on
other consumer goods or services. More jobs.
Secondly, we must consider the health benefits. We’ll all walk a little more. This will reduce
visits to doctors’ offices and hospitals because we’ll be healthier. We’ll have improved blood
pressure, lower stress and possibly a better complexion.
In addition, free transportation will encourage us to enjoy the company of our friends and
family. It will become much more feasible to safely drink another glass of wine at the
restaurant or have that extra beer at the family gathering. We’ll avoid the worry of getting
behind the wheel with a blood-alcohol level that’s above the legal limit. Fewer accidents,
fewer tragedies, lower costs of policing and reduced court backlogs. The increased public
expense in transportation should pay off in the form of reduced health care costs and a safer
Then, think about some of the other social benefits: imagine how much we’ll learn from each
other when we share rides instead of sitting in isolation in our cars. Talking to the neighbors
might come back into fashion. More people will meet and talk and maybe even help each
Having someone else drive us will also give us more time for reading books and newspapers.
So, park your car and use it for your dream vacation.
No more fumbling for change, just hop on and off the streetcar or bus wherever and
whenever you like. What a great idea, especially for those who live in crowded, polluted
cities. It will renew life on our streets.
So I can’t agree more with this proposition. Let’s go for it!
Nowadays, the police have been applying the new regulation concerning the use of seat belts. In
European countries, this regulation has been applied for a long time. However, this new regulation
has become controversial and is an interesting topic to discuss. Here are some of the arguments.
The use of seat belts has been proven to reduce the risk of injury or death in an accident. Seat belt
has become a standard component in cars. The research shows that most car accident will cause an
injury to the head. Frequently, drivers or the passengers driving without seat belts die because of
this. By wearing the seat belts, the injury will not happen since belts restrain our body on the car
seat when the accident happens.
Unfortunately, many cars, especially the old ones, don’t have seat belts. This is because the traffic
conditions in the past were unlike the recent traffic conditions. The designer of old cars didn’t
consider a seat belt as an important part. Besides, the drivers wearing the seat belt will think that
they are completely safe, so they may drive carelessly. They are safe, indeed, but how about safety
of others?
The seat belt is only one of the ways to reduce the risk of car accidents. It doesn’t mean that we are
completely safe. In short, our safety depends on ourselves.
47. Which one is true according to paragraph 3?
(A) old cars do not use seat belts

(D) to prevent the drivers driving cars carefully
(E) to increase the risk of injury in car accidents

Use of Formalin and Other Additives in Foods
The use of formalin and other dangerous preservatives in food has been serious problem for
three reasons. Firstly, formalin is not for human beings, but it is for biological specimens and
experiments. Formalin in Biology is a 10% solution of formaldehyde in water which is
usually used as a disinfectant or to preserve biological specimens. Thus, it is not for food
preservatives. Of course when it is used for food preservative, it will be very dangerous to
human’s body.
The second reason is that there is no tight control from the government. This condition makes
the people’s health is really in a threat. When the control is weak and the use formalin was
spread wide all over the Indonesian regions, and these days it has really happened, the
citizen's bodies will be badly contaminated with the poisons. Fish or food traders still sell
their products which contain formalin and dangerous preservatives. Can you imagine that our
digestive system absorbs the substance that should be for the human and animal corpses?
Considering the reasons, we can make a conclusion that the use of formalin and other
preservatives is really a serious problem if it is not resolved immediately.
1. Why is formalin dangerous for human`s body?

Dust Bin
To improve comfort and cleanliness at our school, a number of dust bins should be increased.
When we look at classrooms, school corridors and school yard, there are paper mineral water
cups, straws, and napkins here and there. The condition of uncleanliness and discomfort
really hinders learning and teaching environment. Litters thrown carelessly cause disease,
especially empty plastic cup or glasses. They can be filled out with water coming from the
rain. This can be placed for dengue mosquitoes to spread out. Besides, these rubbish can
deteriorate the scene. Well painted wall and green school yard do not mean anything litters
are scattered everywhere.
Anyway I notice that most of the students in our school have responsibilities for the school
environment. They put their litters on the proper places. But some are not diligent enough to
find the dust bins. The numbers of dust binds in our schools are not enough. Ore dust bins
should be put beside each of steps, outside of the classrooms, and some more also the
corridors. Probably one dust bin should be in every ten meters. So when students want to
throw away their litters, they can find the dust bins easily.
When school is equipped with sufficient dust bins, we do not have problems of freak and
discomfort any more. Our school will be very clean and become a nice place to study.
What is the writer’s intention? To ….. readers to do something good.
According to the writer, more dust bins….. in every ten meters.
should be decorated
should be painted
should be placed

a. They can prevent litters
b. They can save janitor’s energy
c. Students are asked to clean them
d. They make school environment neat
e. Students can throw garbage away easily
What is the writer’s suggestion?
To buy more dustbins
To hire more gardeners
To use dustbins efficiently
To ask parents to give more dustbins
To ask students to clean the school yard
Integrated Pest Management
There is no best way to deal with pests in agriculture. Pesticides which are commonly used
may cause many problems. I think combining different management operations is the most
effective way to control pests.
Firstly, the chemicals in the pesticides may build up as residues in the environment and in the
soil which absorbs the chemicals. This reduces the quality of farm product.
Secondly, pests can gradually become resistant to pesticides. This means that newer and
stronger ones have to be developed.
Lastly, some pesticides affect non target plants and animals such as fish and bees. This
affects the ecology and environment as well.
So, understanding of ecology of an area helps a lot in pest control. Pesticides should be
chosen and applied carefully so that they don't affect the ecological balance and environment.
Therefore, integrated pest management is a safe and more effective option to fight pest in
agriculture and livestock.
1. Which of the following is not directly affected by pesticides used?
A. Plants

E. The second paragraph tells about the effects of using pesticides on animals mentioned in
paragraph four.
3. One of the disadvantages of using chemical pesticides is …
A. killing fish and bees.
B. increasing crops productivity.
C. creating balanced ecosystem.
D. causing the pests to become inactive

Smoking in Restaurant
Smoking in restaurants is just not on. It must not be allowed because it is rude, harmful to
others and dangerous for the smokers.
Firstly, smoking in a restaurant is impolite. The smell of the smoke affects all people and can
turn them off their food. People pay to taste good food and not to be put off by foul smelling
Another reason smoking should not be allowed in restaurant is the harm it can do to
others. Passive smoking that is breathing in smoke made by a smoker can lead to asthma
attacks and even cancer.
Finally, smoking is dangerous and a health risk to the smokers. Cigarettes cause heart and
lung disease and people should not smoke anywhere, not just in restaurants.

Learning English
Learning English through music and songs can be very enjoyable. You can mix pleasure with
learning when you listen to a song and exploit the song as a means to your English progress.
Some underlying reason can be drawn to support the idea why we use songs in language
Firstly, “the song stuck in my head” Phenomenon (the echoing in our minds of the last song
we heard after leaving a restaurant, shopping malls, etc) can be both enjoyable and sometimes
unnerving. This phenomenon also seems to reinforce the idea that songs work on our shortand-long term memory.
Secondly, songs in general also use simple conversational language, with a lot of repetition,
which is just what many learners look for sample text. The fact that they are effective makes
them many times more motivating than other text. Although usually simple, some songs can
be quite complex syntactically, lexically and poetically, and can be analyzed in the same way
as any other literary sample.
Furthermore, song can be appropriated by listener for their own purpose. Most pop songs and
probably many other types don’t have precise people, place or time reference.
In addition, songs are relaxing. They provide variety and fun, and encourage harmony within
oneself and within one group. Little wonder they are important tools in sustaining culture,
religion, patriotism and yeas, even revolution.
Last but not least, there are many learning activities we can do with songs such as studying
grammar, practicing selective listening comprehension, translating songs, learning
vocabulary, spelling and culture.
From the elaboration above, it can be concluded that learning through music and songs,
learning English can be enjoyable and fun.
The type of the text above is …
Analytical exposition

House Husband’s Heart Risk
Most people assume that life in the rat race is bad for your health. But reversing the
traditional gender roles, being a house husband is a stressful business, according to the latest
research by American scientist. By giving up their jobs in order to become house husbands,
men increase their risk of heart attack or coronary disease by as much as 82%, according to
research based on 10 year study of 2,500 people in Boston, USA.
Accoding to Dr. Elaine Eaker, the key to the problem is that some men became stressed about
performing a role not traditionally assigm to them by society. Men who stays at home tend
not to have the same levels of support from friends and family as women do the same.
Jack O’Sullivan, of the Father’s Direct, was quoted as saying: “Society expects the main
career should be a woman and society is structured around that. Day care is called mother and
toddler groups and some men feel awkward about belonging to those groups.
Professor Gary Cooper, a psychologist at the University of Manchester, said many men tend
to underestimate the task of caring for a family. He said “Most men think being a house
husband involves putting on a bit of washing, taking the kids to school and then putting their
feet up with a cup of coffee.
They are crazy. Most men are not used to performing a variety of activities simultanously –
the kind of multi-tasking which is second nature to most women.
It is estimated that men have taken over the main homemaker’s role in one in seven homes, as
increasing numbers of women become the main breadwinner. The study also found that
women in high-powered jobs were more likely to develop heart disease than those in more
junior positions.

about the Importance of Reading

I personally think that reading is a very important activity in our life. Why do I say
so? Firstly, by reading we can get a lot of knowledge about many things in the world such as
Science, technology. Sports, arts, culture, etc written in either books, magazine, newspaper,
Secondly, by reading we can get a lot of news and information about something happening in
any parts of the world which can we see directly.

newspaper or magazine on the entertainment coloumn such as comedy, short story, quiz, etc.

The amount of homework given to students needs to be reduced for several reasons. In short,
time is limited in many students’ lives. At the same time, other students are showing alarming
levels of obesity due to sedentary lifestyles. Lastly, family disharmony has increased as a result of
stressed parents trying to get their children to do their homework.
Firstly, time is limited. Many students don’t arrive home until 6 pm. This is because they have
chosen to play sports which require a few hours training each week or they engage in cultural
activities, which are often taught after school. By the time they have finished dinner, showered
and finished jobs it is 8pm. If they have homework, then it is too late to start. Therefore it is fair to
say there is not enough time after school to complete quality homework.
On the other hand, many other young people are recording high levels of obesity because of their
sedentary lifestyles. Why sit still at night when students have been sitting still in classrooms all
day? This is not good for their health and contributes to the high level of obesity seen today.
Finally, homework places huge amounts of stress on already stressed out families. In many
families both parents are working and the last thing they need is to fight with their children at the
end of a stressful day.
In conclusion, homework should be reduced. We must recognize that students’ time is limited,
sedentary work contributes to the high levels of obesity and finally, homework can cause an
increase in family disharmony. The wellbeing of students is far more important than excessive
amounts of homework.

Motorbikes are a nuisance and a cause for great distress. Even motorbikes or considered as
the most convenient from of transportation, I think they are a hazard to humans, animals, as
well as the environment. I think motorbikes should be banned in housing areas due to the
following reasons: cause of unreasonable amount of noise, air pollution, diseases,and
First of all, I would like to point out that motorbike are major contributor to the pollution in
the world. Research has shown that motorbikes emit a deadly gas that is dangerous for
environment. Consequently, long-therm emission of gas from motorbikes is a major
contributor of global warming (science daily).
Secondly, according to report from BBC News Channel, motorbikes are also responsible for
causing diseases such as bronchitis, cancer, and are a major trigger of asthma and high
blood pressure. Some of the diseases are so ghastly that they can kill people (BBC
News ,2009).
Furthermore, motorbikes create so much noise. There is “Vroom Vroom” noise every where.
It is extremely difficult to sleep parents with infants find it extremely challenging. The
moment their babies fall a sleep, one or other motorbike passes by and the baby wakes up. It
is also arduous for children to concentrate on their homework. Expert are of opinion that if
there is extreme noise, It can lead to deafness and lack of concentration in children and
adults (field,1993).
Finally motorbikes are responsible for horrible accidents. In some cases there are deaths.
Motorbikes riders go so fast that they are enable to stop on time thus they and up hitting
other people or animals. Many a time lot of animals are trampled and found death and road.
Motorbikes are known to be the biggest killers on road (field,1993).
In conclusion, from the arguments above, I strongly believe that motorbikes should be
banned from housing areas.
1. Gold has become a precious metal to mankind since it was the dawn of civilization.
The nature of gold is soft and malleable which people can make and easily change to
any forms, even it is done just by a simple technology. The beautiful golden and shiny
color does not easily fade out. The form of gold can be as jewelry, bar, or coin. Now
days gold coin, such as gold IRA, becomes an advantageous investment.
2. Gold is safe and profitable for investment. In uncertain situations, many people are
turning to gold because gold has a more stable value and regarded as currency without
limitation assets. It is secure and can be cashed out at any time we need. The Gold
values tend to be stable; take a look an IRA gold discussion. It is zero inflation effect.
It is very rare that the gold prices fell. Even every year, the gold price tends to
3. Investments in the form of coins, it is famous as gold coin, is more profitable if it is
compared with the investment gold in the form of jewelry. Gold Coin, for example
gold 401k which some people call 401k gold, is very good when used as an
alternative investment, whether it is for the medium-term investment and long-term
investment. Besides that gold coins need less cost in production and manufacturing
sot it is more lucrative than investing gold in the form of jewelry.
4. Moreover, some people do not just think gold as an investment, but also as collections.
Because the character is a collection so the uniqueness and rareness are the point.
There might be coins that cost up to more than a million because of the history
variables, ownership, and perhaps an important event when the coin is launched.
5. From the reason above, if we decide to make an investment, it could be useful to
consider investing gold coin or think about gold IRA transfer. It is really
6. The Importance of English
7. I personally think that English is the world’s most important language. why f=do I say
that? Firstly, English is an international language. It is spoken by many people all
around the world, either as a first or second language. Secondly, English is also the
key which opens doors to scientific and technical knowledge, which is needed for the
economic and political development of many countries in the world. Thirdly, English
is a top requirement of those seeking jobs. Applicants who master either active or
passive English are more favorable than those who for not. From the fact above, it is
obvious that everybody needs to learn English to greet the global era.

Furthermore high blood pressure

these problems. But one thing is clear,

The power of Love in our life’.
Do you agree that love is important for every human survival? Yes, I do. Love is an
emotion that born from compassion. Love has elements, namely fondness and intimacy.
Love has an important role in our life. Here are some reasons why love is needed by
everyone in everywhere.
First, love is a form of care. When we are sad or even when we are happy, we need a
care from another. We do not want to feel all alone. We certainly want to share what we
feel. Can you imagine how hard if we have to go through all alone?
In addition, love is a crucial need. Love can give us spirit for survive from our problems.
We cannot life without love. If we do not have someone to be loved, automatically our
life would feel empty. Love also encourages us to help others, keeps us far from fear and
Furthermore, love is needed to live in society. Love can unite us and protect one another.
Love makes us not hurt other people. So, what would the world be like without love? It
would be scary.
Jakarta as a Bad Working Place for Expatriates
Jakarta is the second-worst place for expatriates to work in outside of the United States of
America, Canada and Western Europe. It is according to a recent report published by
The Businessweek report ranked emerging markets that might be challenging to move into
due to their level of pollution, disease, political violence and availability of good and services.
The report ranked Jakarta second, just below Lagos in Nageria and above Riyadh Saudi
Arabia, saying the threat of violence from extremest, in particular, was serious drawback to
living in Jakarta. Bombings targeting foreign interests in Jakarta, such as the JW Marriot
hotel bombing in 2003, have been repeated elsewhere in the city.
The report said despite problem common to many developing cities such as the risk of
disease, poor sanitation, and excessive pollution, Indonesia can be an enticing location.
In response, the Jakarta administration took the report positively, saying it could spur the
administration to improve its performance.

Is Smoking Good for Us? – Example of Analytical Exposition
Is it good to smoke? Analytical exposition example
Before we are going to smoke, it is better to look at the fact. About 50 thousands people die
every year in Britain as direct result of smoking. This is seven times as many as die in road
accidents. Nearly a quarter of smokers die because of diseases caused by smoking.
Ninety percent of lung cancers are caused by smoking. If we smoke five cigarettes a day, we
are six times more likely to die of lung cancer than a non smoker. If we smoke twenty
cigarettes a day, the risk is nineteen greater. Ninety five percent of people who suffer of
bronchitis are people who are smoking. Smokers are two and half times more likely to die of
heart disease than non smokers.
Additionally, children of smoker are more likely to develop bronchitis and pneumonia. In one
hour in smoky room, non smoker breathes as much as substance causing cancer as if he had
smoked fifteen cigarettes.
Smoking is really good for tobacco companies because they do make much money from
smoking habit. Smoking however is not good for every body else.
Water is source of life. We can find water in anywhere and every time. It is very useful
One of the usefulness or advantages is that water is very necessary for life. Water is
beneficial for drinking. Well, we have to drink water that has been processed because
The other usefulness or advantage is that water can be used for washing clothes,
Still another usefulness or advantage is that water be used for fish for life. Many fish
Still another usefulness is that water beneficial to plants. Water used in the process of
plant photosynthesis. Water also
the plants do not wilt.
From those proofs above, I conclude that water is very useful for our life and water is
source of life.
Lakes and rivers are often polluted because drains from towns and factories empty into them.
And factories sometimes dump very harmful chemicals into the water. The chemicals poison
the water. Wildlife cannot easily survive in it.
Ocean-going tankers sometimes empty tank fills of oily water into the sea. When this
happens, great patches of oil are left floating on the sea’s surface. If fish swallow the oil, or if
their gills become dogged up, they die. Birds land on the sea and the oil is cleaned off the
birds will die.
Electricity for your home is made in buildings called power plants. Power plants usually use
coal, oil, or gas to make electricity. But some plant use nuclear energy.
To make nuclear energy, uranium is needed. And uranium is radioactive, which means it
gives off rays which are very dangerous to any living thing. People working in nuclear power
plants wear special clothing and masks to protect themselves.
After the uranium has been used there is some dangerous waste, rubbish, left. Scientists
haven’t yet found out how to make rubbish completely safe. So it is sealed in huge concrete
containers and buried at sea, or deep underground.
Some people are worried that the radioactivity might escape and poison living things. And
this rubbish remains dangerous for thousands of years.
In short, our environment has been contaminated by chemicals. And there’s human’s role
beyond the pollution.

Global warming.
Everybody should change their way of life to reduce global warming. There are several
things that we can do. One of them is by buying and consuming fresh local groceries as much
as possible. It of course includes local vegetables, fruits, bread, etc.
Argument 1
Local groceries don’t need much transportation to get it into the market. It of course means,
the amount of carbon dioxide produced is less than the groceries from other region. Therefore,
by buying local groceries we are helping reduce the amount of carbon dioxide produced.
Argument 2
Consuming fresh groceries instead of frozen ones are healthier for us. Furthermore, fresh
food or groceries means no requirements for it to be freeze up. It means that no electricity is
needed and saving energy means reducing carbon dioxide and money.
So, from now on we should consume fresh local groceries to reduce global warming.

6. Factors influence children
Nowadays, children behaviors are influenced by televisions, strangers, friends, and
family members. First, one influence that has major effect on children behavior is
television. Believe it or not, television plays a big role in how kids act.
Second, children may also influenced by they don’t know. Although most children are
taught not to talk to strangers, we would be surprised how many actually do. Studies
have shown that boys and girls talk to strangers and they are more likely to do what
the strangers tell them. Sometime kids are influence by their friends. Friends are
people who are so close to children, and they are people who children trust.
Third, kids are mostly influenced by their parents because they are people who stay
with kids most of their time. Kids tend to be like them. Parent play big role in children
life. If kid sees his/her parent fight all the time at home, it will probably make him or
her become rude.
Finally, children’s mind is very delicate thing. Everything that happens to a young
child will affect how she or he thinks and act in the future.
The Negative Effects of Playing Online Game
There are many negative effects of playing the online game. In this modern era with the highly
sophisticated technologies, people especially children extremely like playing the online game. They
can play the game through ipad, computer, smartphone and many other technologies by connecting
the game to the internet network.
Firstly, the online game makes people addicted. They will feel very lonely without playing the
online game. They can stand playing the game for hours although it makes them jaded. Besides that,
by wasting a lot of time for playing the game, they can forget everything such as taking a bath,
eating, days, doing homework and so on. The addiction of the online game is very dangerous
because people must go to the psychiatrist, or they must do rehabilitation for stopping the addiction.

heart health and etc. When people like playing the online game particularly the genre of the game is
crime, it will make mental like a criminal or murderer. In the real life, someone who has got mental
disorder because of the online game can kill someone. Their eyes will get some disorders such as
Hypermetropia, Myopia and Astigmatism. Heart health can get a bad effect. For example, people can
encounter Myocardial Infarction or heart attack suddenly because people are too much playing the

Thirdly, playing the online game can spend much money. People that like playing the online game
will be willing to pay to the internet server every time in order to be able to connect to the internet.

Mentally Ill Person Wander Around Freely On The Street
I personally think that a person with a mental illness that we usually find wandering around
our neighborhood aimlessly is not dangerous, but a serious act need to be done on this matter.
The following reasons will show you why we need to do something to insane people.
Firstly, people with mental illness who walk around our neighborhood or workplace may
look scary beause most of the time they are found in dirty condition and in zombie-like state
(having no consciousness), but they rarely endanger the people around them, except they
were disturbed first. Placing them in a secure place will minimize the chance of them being
disturbed by irresponsible people compare to when we let them wander around on the street
Secondly, loosing their conscious mind does not mean that they have forgotten their basic
instinct for food, drinks and self preservation. We can imagine what will happen when they
feel hungry or thirsty when they are roaming around on the street. They will cause trouble to
the people around them. Keeping them in a special place will prevent this problem. It will
bring security for the insane people and also for the society.
Thirdly, people with mental illness may not have a healthy mind, but they do have a healthy
body or at least healthy body parts. Without anyone caring, they are the best target of human
trafficking business as no one will notice if they are disappear. That is why we need to protect
them by placing them in a secure facility where we can always check on their condition and
make sure that they are safe.
Based on the explanations above, it is clear that we need to protect the people with mental
illness by placing them in a special and secure facility where we can take care of them and
cure them if it is possible.

Orang Gila Berkeliling – Keliling Secara Bebas Di Jalanan
Saya pikir seseorang dengan penyakit kejiwaan yang biasa kita temukan sedang berkeliling –
keliling di lingkungan kita tanpa tujuan itu tidak berbahaya, namun sebuah tindakan serius
perlu dilakukan akan permasalahan ini. Beberapa alasan berikut ini akan menunjukkan pada
anda mengapa kita perlu melakukan sesuatu terhadap orang yang memiliki penyakit jiwa.
Yang pertama, orang dengan penyakit kejiwaan yang berjalan di sekeliling lingkungan kita
atau lingkungan kerja kita mungkin terlihat menyeramkan karena sering nya mereka
ditemukan dalam kondisi yang kotor dan keadaan seperti zombie (tidak memiliki kesadaran),
namun mereka jarang membahayakan orang-orang disekitar mereka, kecuali mereka
diganggu lebih dulu. Menempatkan mereka di sebuah tempat yang aman akan memperkecil
kemungkinan mereka diganggu oleh orang-orang yang tidak bertanggung jawab
dibandingkan dengan ketika mereka kita biarkan berkeliling – keliling di jalanan secara bebas.
Yang kedua, kehilangan kesadaran mereka tidak berarti mereka telah melupakan naluri dasar
mereka untuk makanan, minuman dan perlindungan diri. Kita bisa membayangkan apa yang
akan terjadi saat mereka merasa lapar atau haus ketika mereka berkeliling-keliling di jalanan.
Mereka akan menimbulkan masalah bagi orang-orang di sekitar mereka. Menempatkan
mereka di sebuah tempat khusus akan mencegah masalah ini. Hal itu akan membawa
keamanan bagi orang yang sakit jiwa dan juga untuk masyarakat.
Yang ketiga, orang-orang dengan penyakit kejiwaan memang tidak memiliki pikiran yang
sehat, namun mereka itu memiliki tubuh yang sehat atau setidaknya organ tubuh yang sehat.
Tanpa adanya pengawasan, mereka adalah target terbaik bagi tindakan perdagangan manusia
karena tidak ada yang akan menyadari jika mereka menghilang. Inilah sebabnya kita perlu
melindungi mereka dengan menempatkan di sebuah fasilitas yang aman dimana kita bisa
selalu memeriksa keadaan mereka dan memastikan bahwa mereka dalam keadaan aman.
Berdasarkan penjelasan di atas, sudah jelas bahwa kita perlu melindungi orang yang memiliki
penyakit jiwa dengan menempatkan mereka di sebuah tempat khusus dan aman dimana kita
bisa merawat mereka dan menyembuhkan mereka jika memungkinkan.

Handphone is one of electronic technology in our life. Handphone have many function and
very important for our life. Almost all people in the world have handphone. And now, there
are some reasons why handphone is important.
Handphone can be used for communication. All people in the world know that it is the
basic function of handphone. With handphone, we can communicate with other people
although the long distance separated us. With handphone, communication will be easy. We
can talk with someone else around the world with handphone. If we don’t want to talk with
them, we can send them information through SMS or short message. SMS is the acronym of
Short Message Service. In SMS, we can’t talk-on, we only send a message.
Second, handphone comes in various facilities, such as camera, music player, video
player, dictionary, calculator, games, etc. With camera, we can take a lot of pictures and
videos. Those pictures and videos can memories us to the romantic, sadness, and also
unforgettable moments. We also take a picture and video just for fun. With handphone, we
also can listening music and watching video. With handphone too, we can search the meaning
of a word and also for calcute something. With handphone too, we can playing game. It can
help us when we feel bored. When we feel bored, we can playing game so we can’t be bored
The last but not least, handphone can be used for browsing internet. With handphone,
we can search many information easly. And if we want to browsing internet, we don’t need
computer to open it. With handphone, we can open the internet and search many information
that we need easily and fast.
Based on the above discussion, don’t marvels if almost all people in the world have
handphone, because handphone is an electronic technology that very important for our life.
Handphones have been common devices used by everybody, including school students.
We can see that many students always bring their mobile phones to school, even to
classroom. Somehow, mobile phones are helpful sometimes, but it also can bring bad
effects for their studying at school. First, mobile phones will make students not focus on
their studying at school. If they bring their mobile phones, it will be no doubt if they
will play their mobile phones at studying time. For example, a student plays a mobile
game while studying time. He is ignoring the teacher’s explanation and any tasks from
his teacher during the class.
Besides, mobile phones can disturb the process of teaching and learning in the class. For
instance, when the teacher is explaining the lesson, suddenly he is disturbed by the
notification of message or the calling ringtone from one of his student’s handphone. The
worst is when the students are studying the lesson or doing a test, they are distubed by
the notification, too. Surely, it will be very annoying.
Later, mobile phones will also make students dependent. As we know that mobile
phones are completed with so many things such as calculator, dictionary, and google.
students may depend on their mobile phones, for example a student needs to answer a
mathematic question. To make it easy, he uses his calculator in mobile phones or
anytime his teacher asks him about the lesson, he always searches on Google to find the
Addition to the depedence, mobile phones will make students become unsociable. When
students have had their mobile phones on their hands, they will not be able to be
distracted including their own friends. They will only focus on their own mobile phones
without socializing with their friends. Surely, it will bring bad social effect for them. In
short, bringing handphones to school will bring negative effects in classroom.

School Uniform, Another Good Lesson
School uniform is special clothes worn by all students of a particular school. The
uniform of a school may differ from others. Why should schools use uniforms? Below are
some reasons
Notre Dame’s Department of Sociology produced a study in 1998 concerning school
uniforms. Their findings using 10th grade students showed that uniforms have no direct effect
on “substance abuse, behavioral problems or attendance.” It also claimed a negative effect on
student achievements for those students considered ‘pro-school’.
uniform helps to create a strong sense school ethos and a sense of belonging to a
particular community. As such it promotes discipline and helps to drive up academic
standards, which is why a uniform is often adopted by schools which are being reopened with
a fresh start after being classified as failing.
uniform acts as a social leveler, under which all students are equal in the eyes of the
school and of each other. In institutions without uniform students are often competitive and
worry endlessly about their appearance and the clothes they should wear. Pupils without
expensive designer clothes and trainers may be singled out as social outcasts, or stigmatized
as being from poor backgrounds. For these reasons many parents prefer uniforms as they save
them money on buying clothes for school wear. Considering the findings, schools should
implement the uniform as their identity. The government should also publish some kind of
rule which makes uniform compulsory for schools.

Making careful decision about jobs you take
if you want to advance your career, you will have to make some careful decisions about
which jobs you take. Consider a job offered for the value it has to your career. It may mean
sacrifices at first. You may have to move to a different region or country to get a job that is
right for you. You may have to work late hours, at least temporarily. You might even have to
take a lower salary for a job that offers you the experience that you need. But you should
never accept a job if it is not related to your career goals.
Accepting a job that is not within your career path will not give you the skill or experience
you need or want. You will find yourself frustrated in such a position and consequently will
not perform your best. This will have an effect on the people around you, who will not feel as
if you are being part of the team. The best advice is to think carefully before accepting any
position and make sure that the job is one you to have.

Nowadays global warming is happen in all over the world. It caused by increased levels
of carbon dioxide in the earth, the greenhouse effect, and thus reduction of green land
on the surface of the earth. There are many ways to prevent global warming and one
way is by planting trees. In addition to prevent global warming, planting tree also has
many other benefits.
Namely, if we planting trees we will get oxygen from the photosynthesis carried out by
trees. Did you know that one day a tree can produce up to 1.2 kg of oxygen, but one day
people only need 0.5 kg of oxygen to breathe, it’s more than enough to people. Even a
medium-sized tree if placed in the right place can turn 4 people every year. Oh…It’s so
amazing, yeah?
Nextly, planting trees can protect us from natural disasters, such as landslides and
floods. Beside this benefit, tress also can save water soil because trees hold the particles
to avoid direct rain hit the ground so that the soil strength is maintained and we can
prevent from soil erosion that caused landslides and flood. During the dry season the
trees store water so that we can avoid drought water.
Eventually, trees can produce food, beside for themselves, trees also produce food for
all living beings, Esspecially for humans. Every day, tree can produce up to 1 kg of food,
and of course it is very important for human life, because every day we need food
for our live. Let’s begin to plant trees from now on because tree very important for our
Flood is an overflow of an expanse of water that submerges land. It is included one of the most
frightened disasters in the world. This disaster brings a lot of bad effect to nature and people.
There are three kinds of bad effect that caused by flood; primary effects, secondary effects and longterm effects. First is about the primary effects. The examples of primary effects are physical damage
and casualties. Physical damage can damage any type of structure, including bridges, cars, buildings,
sewer systems, roadways, and canals. From casualties, people and livestock die due to drowning. It
can also lead to epidemics and waterborne diseases.
The next is secondary effects. The examples are water supplies, diseases, crops and food supplies
and trees. Water supplies mean contamination of water. Clean drinking water becomes scarce.
Diseases mean unhygienic conditions. Spread of water-borne diseases. Crops and food supplies
mean shortage of food crops that can be caused due to loss of entire harvest. However, lowlands
near rivers depend upon river silt deposited by floods in order to add nutrients to the local soil. And
Trees mean non-tolerant species can die from suffocation.
The last is long-term effects. The example is economic. Economic here means economic hardship,
due to: temporary decline in tourism, rebuilding costs, food shortage leading to price increase ,etc.
From the explanation above, we know that flood causes many bad effects to our live especially our
environment. So, we must care about cleanness of our environment.
Use of Formalin and Other Additives in Foods
The use of Formalin and other dangerous preservatives in foods has been a serious problem
for three reasons. Firstly, formalin is not for human beings, but it is for biological specimen
and experiments. Formalin in Biology is a 10 % solution of formaldehyde in water which is
usually used as a disinfectant or to preserve biological specimens. Thus, it is not for food
preservative. Of course when it is used for food preservative, it will be very dangerous to
humans’ body.
The second reason is that there is no tight control from the government. This condition makes
the people’s health is really in threat. When the control is weak and the use of formalin was
spread wide all over the Indonesian regions, and these days it has really happened, the
citizens’ bodies will be badly contaminated with the poisons. Fish or food traders still sell
their products which contain formalin and dangerous preservatives. Can you imagine that our
digestive system absorbs the substance that should be for the human and animal corpses?
The third is that the difficult economy seems not end. This can make situation worse. We all
know that today’s economy is very difficult. People buy daily products and fulfill their need
with high costs. Things are getting more and more expensive. Consequently, the food
production cost increases. For example, the preservation process for fish will be much
cheaper f the producers use formalin. They know the danger of Formalin, but they don’t care
about the other’s health. What is in their mind is only how to get profit.
Considering the reasons, we can make a conclusion that the use of formalin and other
preservatives is really a serious problem if it is not resolved immediately.
Illegal Logging
Illegal Logging is really a problematic case in this country. There are three reasons why it is
the case.
Firstly, the illegal logging has threatened the people who live in the countryside around or
under the area. The bald forest or hills make a big danger when the rainy seasons come. The
great quantity of water can create landslides since there are no enough trees to hold the water
and land. We have seen the landslide disasters which happened in many areas in Indonesia.
The number of the areas struck by landslide has increased.
The second reason is that the uncontrolled trees felling seems to go on without any significant
effort of the government to stop it. According to some news sources in Newspaper and news
program on TV, the activities of illegal cutting of the trees in some regions are actually
known b the government officers. The police and local government let them cut the threes
because they are given much money for themselves. They do not think their actions endanger
the people around the forests. Therefore, it can be said that illegal logging is illegal but
known by the officers.
The third is that the illegal felling of the forest trees can destroy the natural ecosystem. When
the forest trees are continuously cut and the rein forestation is not done as the rule, the natural
ecosystem is in a terrible danger. The system which is formed by the interaction between a
community of organisms, including humans and animals, and their physical environment will
be threatened. Human beings in several villages have been killed. Wide areas of farms are
destroyed by the piles of mud and thousands of farm animals are killed and lost. Who are
suffering ?
Based on the given reasons, uncontrolled illegal logging is a serious problem that needs to be
solved immediately by both the government and citizens as the owners of the forest.
Bullying is the use of violence, threat, or force to intimidate others. This behaviour can be a habit
and involve an imbalance of social and physical power. This behaviour can include verbal abuse or
threats, physical violence or force and can be directed repeatedly against a certain victim. It maybe
based on race, religion, gender, sexuality, or ability.
It is a very serious problem and dangerous for our social environment. We have to stop every single
act of bullying because it has many impacts that could be threatening each involved part of society,
not only for the bullied children, but also the children who bully, children who watch a bullying, even
for the school with the issue of bullying. Bullying can bring bad influence on children’s physical and
mental health. In a heavy case, bullying can be the trigger of a fatal act, as suicide.
There are several problems that might be suffered by children as the victim of bullying. First is a
variety of mental problems like depression, anxiety and sleeping trouble; this problem may be
carried away until the victim grows to be an adult. The act of bullying will be so difficult to forget by
the victims. Second, there would be physical health complaints, as headache, abdominal pain and
muscle strain. Third, there is insecurity right in the school environment. Fourth, there is the decline
in the spirit of learning and academic achievement. Fifth, in the quite rare case, the victims of
bullying will probably show the nature of violence.
Not only to the victims, could the impacts of bullying also affect the doer of bullying. According to a
research, when they are growing into an adult, the children who do the act of bullying have big
tendency to behave roughly, do criminality, be engaged in vandalism, consume drugs and alcohol,
and be engaged in free intercourse. In addition, sixty percent of boys who bully his friend in the
primary school or junior high school have convicted at least once over a crime in the age of 24 years.
By watching the act of bullying, children can also get the impacts. They may have a big tendency to
feel insecure when they are at school, they may have mental problems such as depression, anxiety,
and traumatic feeling. Moreover, they misuse alcohol and drugs due to the stress.
The school, where the act of bullying happens, also gets the impacts. It makes insecurity feeling in
the school environment. Besides, the activity of teaching and learning may be not effective.
Furthermore, the morality education at the school can be doubted.
It is obvious that bullying is very horrible and we have to stop it due to hazardous impacts such as
physical and mental health problem, the quality decline in achievement or work, having bad image,
possibility or tendency to be engaged in crime, misusing of alcohol and drugs, until suicide. Those
impacts are not only for the victim, but also for the doer, the witness of this act, and the place where
bullying happens.
As we know that the status quo right now in Jakarta, many people have personal car. Because of that,
Jakarta always have traffic jam, not only in the morning, but also in the evening everyday. It's very
big problem in Jakarta. So, the government makes some ways to solve this problem. One of the ways,
they make Trans Jakarta bus which is having a specific line.
People should use the Trans Jakarta bus. Why? Because it can make many advantages for the people
who doesn't have vehicles. In the other hands, it can influence the condition in Jakarta. which mean
that, Trans Jakarta can change the situation in Jakarta which before have many traffic jam in
everywhere, become fluent on the way
The second argument of this text, if the people use the Trans Jakarta bus, they will thrifty the money,
because they just cost 3500 rupiahs and they can transit to other place without pay again. And then
they don't have to fill the car with gas, which is more expensive than use Trans Jakarta.
Third, if all of the people use Trans Jakarta bus, it will also decrease the polution in Jakarta, because
the people always drive their car and ride their motorcycle are decreasing so that the polution will
also decrease.
Fourth, when the people has already use the Trans Jakarta bus, it makes the cars and motorcycles in
the road decrease, the road will little bit empty and so the Trans Jakarta bus can pass by without the
Finally, come to my last argument, if the people use Trans Jakarta bus, they will feel more comfort
then they use public transportation, motorcycles, and etc. Because the Trans Jakara bus uses air
conditioner can fill a lot of people. And if we use the ordinary bus like Kopaja, Metro Mini, bemo,
and etc, there a lot of criminals, but not in the Trans Jakarta bus because there is a guard.
So, the conclusion of this text is the Trans Jakarta bus giving us some advantages such as cheap,
comfortable, avoid from polution, and avoid from criminality, and make the air of Jakarta is getting
better and fresher. And finally, using the Trans Jakarta bus will change the Jakarta's condition. Which
full of cars before become fluent and less the fluel using.
So, we believe that people should use the Trans Jakarta bus to change our Jakarta become comfort
Air Pollution Dangers
Air pollution affects so much more than just the air we breathe. Everything living has a need
for clean, breathable air, from humans and animals, to plants and trees. These needs make
fighting air pollution a major priority for everyone, to help heal and protect our planet and
Air pollution is a common issue among large cities, anywhere in the world. High volumes of
traffic, large industrial areas, and dense concentrations of people all contribute to the amount
of pollution in the area. The effects of air pollution reach around the globe, wreak havoc on
people, plants, and animals. Changes to air and water quality create dangerous and even
deadly situations. Here are just a few of the dangers of air pollution.
Breathing polluted air can cause damage to the heart and lungs. Similar to the effects of
smoking tobacco, inhaling the particles in polluted air can cause people and animals to
develop heart and lung disease that could eventually prove fatal.
Those with certain medical conditions may find that high levels of air pollution aggravate
their symptoms. People with asthma, allergies, and diseases resulting in breathing problems
are usually the worst affected.
Plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen as their “breathing” process. When
pollutants are present in the air, plant life will breathe these particles in, as well. This causes
serious problems within the cells of the plant, resulting in poor growth and possibly death or
the plant.
The residue from the chemicals and pollution in the air deposits itself onto plants, preventing
necessary photosynthesis from taking place. Without the ability to receive proper sunlight,
plants quickly discolor and die.
The moisture in the atmosphere picks up the dangerous chemicals and pollutants in the air,
creating even further problems for the environment. The resulting acid rain can find its way
into ground water and other waterways, creating a dangerous situation for plants, animals and
humans alike.
Air pollution contributes to water and soil pollution that can be disastrous for all living
Whenever you buy a pack of cigarettes, I am sure that you get to read the government
warning label. Can’t remember what that is? The government warning label is the sentence
that says, “Cigarette smoking is dangerous to your health.” So what are the dangers of
Cancer is a danger of smoking. Because of the known carcinogens and mutagens found in
cigarettes and tobacco products, it is not a mystery how smoking causes cancer. Cancers of
the oral cavity, laryngeal cancer, esophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, and lung cancer are
just some examples. In the United States, 87% of lung cancer cases are linked to smoking.
Lung cancer risk of secondhand smokers is increased by 20 to 30%.
Another danger of smoking is its effects on the heart. Because nicotine causes narrowing of
the blood vessels which leads to blockage, smokers are 5 times more at risk of suffering a
heart attack. And nonsmokers who are exposed to secondhand smoke have increased risk of
developing heart disease by 25 to 30%. Other diseases include stroke, peripheral vascular
disease, and atherosclerosis.
The immune system is also harmed by smoking. The risk of acquiring various infections like
common colds, invasive pneumococcal disease, chronic bronchitis, and other pulmonary and
respiratory infections is increased by smoking. If a smoker consumes 20 or more cigarettes a
day, acquiring tuberculosis is increased by 2 to 4 times.
Another danger of smoking is the likelihood of a miscarriage. It is discouraged for pregnant
women to smoke because it deprives oxygen for the fetus. Smoking while pregnant can cause
the infant to be born with low birth weight and small for gestational age. These could lead to
more infant diseases like jaundice and breathing difficulty. Sudden infant death syndrome has
also been linked to smoking while pregnant.
Other dangers of smoking are the development of diseases such as chronic pulmonary disease,
emphysema, asthma, allergies, and many others.
All these dangers of smoking cause death. A smoker’s life expectancy is reduced by 2.5 to 10
years. And for each consumed cigarette, a smoker loses 11 minutes of his life! These facts are
what made smoking as the second major cause of death worldwide.
Spending too many hours watching television, consumes the precious time that can rather be
spent in fruitful and healthy activities like exercise or reading. It also uses up the time that
you can rather spend with your family and friends. Chatting with your near ones, spending
time with your close ones is a better expenditure of time than in watching TV.
The children of today watch television for long hours. Many a time, they spend their evenings
watching their favorite programs on TV. At times they stay up late to watch films on TV.
This activity adds to their sedentary hours. The addiction to television deprives them of their
time to play. Children should rather engage in physical activities during the evenings. They
should go to the open spaces to play with friends or spend time reading some good books.
Moreover, watching television is detrimental to one’s eyesight. These activities can help them
live a healthier living.
Some researchers claim that the attention deficit disorders in children are a result of watching
television. They say that watching television leads to a developmental disorder in the part of
the brain, which is responsible for language skills. Children, who watch television and read
less, show difficulties in paying attention or concentrating. Children spending long hours in
watching television are susceptible to being affected by attention deficit disorders.
Television is one of the effective media, which are used to propagate all types of products.
Unsupervised television watching in children can lead to an early exposure to a wide variety
of things. Television advertisements may influence the children to resort to improper
measures. Commercials about fast foods, cold drinks or other such products that are not good
for health, are bound to leave an impact on children watching them. Attractively presented
advertisements and film stories deeply impact young minds, thus influencing the thoughts
and behavior of children.
People watching television, especially children and youngsters, start identifying with what is
shown on TV. They relate to television shows and films to such an extent that they get bored
of living a normal and simple life. They crave for fame and riches; they yearn for living the
lives of their favorite TV characters. This may lead to a high amount of dissatisfaction in the
masses. As real life is the contrast of the life portrayed on TV, such TV addicts become
hungry for power, money and status.
Studies in psychology have shown that watching intense emotions on television leaves a
long-lasting impact on one’s mind. Horror scenes, ghosts, frightful scenes that are featured on
television have a negative impact on the minds of people watching them. Violence, murder,
bloodshed and physical abuse that is shown on television impacts the thoughts and emotions
of the spectators.
Television is one means of recreation but its excessive use is detrimental to one’s physical
and mental health.

Contoh Analytical Exposition Text – The Importance of Internet for Education
The impact of internet in education has been far reaching and still developing. It has created
instant access to a wide variety of research information to help students learn.
Nowadays, internet access has created the potential for students to learn new material easily.
The time students have at class is limited, so the teacher sometimes cannot give all the
explanation needed. In this case, internet can help students to get more explanation.
Internet has become now way of life. In the future, on students’ working life, they will have
to use internet. So it is wise for the teacher to give assignment which related to it. For
example, teacher can ask students to give the assignment via e-mail.
Internet has big impact on education. There are many positive things students and teacher can
get from it.
Contoh Analytical Exposition – The Importance of Breakfast
Why is breakfast important? “Breakfast like a King, Lunch like a Prince and Dine like a
Pauper” It’s a well known phrase, but do you follow it?
Breakfast provides many benefits to our health and wellbeing. Breakfast provides the body
and brain with fuel after an overnight fast – that’s where its name originates, breaking the
fast! Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with
no petrol!
Breakfast support cognitive function. Breakfast also restores glucose levels, an essential
carbohydrate that is needed for the brain to function. Breakfast provides energy, studies have
shown how eating breakfast can improve memory and concentration levels and it can also
make us happier as it can improve mood and lower stress levels.
Breakfast provides energy needs. People’s energy needs vary depending on activity levels
and life stage but typically men require more energy than women. Growing children require a
lot of energy, as an example boys aged 7-10 years should consume approximately 1970 kcals
per day, and girls aged 7-10 years should consume approximately 1740 kcals.

Social media give many negative impacts to children and teenagers. For example,
children and teenagers become lazy to communicate in real world. Their understanding
of the language is disturbed. If they are too much communicating in the virtual world,
then their knowledge about the details of communicating in real life, like body language
and tone of voice, will be declined.
In addition to the communication problem, social networking sites will make children
and teenagers more self-interested. They are not conscious of the environment around
them. They don’t care about other people because most of their time is spent on the
internet. They prefer to share their feelings through the social media. This can cause
children to be less empathetic in the real world.
Another bad impact of social media, for children and teenagers, is that through social
networking sites, many children and teenagers are thretened to be crime victims by
predators. Parents will never know if someone new with whom our children just
acquainted on the internet, uses the real identity or not. On TV, many reports tell that
some young girls in Indonesia being abducted by people they met on Facebook, Twitter
Instragram, or other social networking sites. This make the parents worried.
Hence, it is clear that social media has many bad influences on children and teenagers.
They have to be restricted in using social media due to the impacts. They are not
forbidden to make friends through social media. They are free to express themselves on
the social media, but with the parents’control.
Impacts of Drugs Misuse
Drugs which contain compounds that give addictive effects for users are really harmful.
At the beginning, people, who misuse them, want to relive their stress by consuming the
addictive drugs. They do not think about the dangerous impacts which will appear after
they consume them. The impacts of consuming this kind of drugs are not only for the
users, but also for their family,
The users will have the bad impact for themselves. They will have brain function
disorder and they do not grow normally as other teenagers. Besides, If they consume the
drugs in an excessive dose, they will get overdose that causes to death by stoppage of
respiration or brain blooding. Health damages or other organ function disorders like
liver, heart, pulmonary, the kidney, the endocrine glands, reproduction, and skin
diseases will also appear.
Besides, the consumers of drugs will also get another disorder, that is, behaviour or
mental-social disorder which is hard to control. They are easily offended, outraged,
withdrawn from the community, and their relationships with family or fellow are
disturbed. Their value of religion, culture, and social lif can decline. Furthermore,
economic and law issues can be involved when the addicts are in debt to meet the needs
of drugs. They can sell his personal belongings or his family’s ones. They can also steal
money from family’s or others’ belongings so that they can be arrested by police or even
in jail.
Moreover, the comfortable and peaceful atmosphere of their family can be disturbed.
The children are lying and not responsible. They steal, deceive, and become asocial,
therefore the parents are embarrassed knowing that the future of their children is
unclear. The parents are desperate for the increased output of money, or because their
children must be treated in the hospital for many times, maybe even live in prison.
Family should bear the burden of these socioeconomic problems. Those are some of the
impacts of drugs misuse which really hazardous for ourselves, and family,
