“Smallfoot” Movie Review

Are you looking for a new animated movie to enjoy with your family? One that is family friendly and shares a valuable lesson? Well, you’re in luck! The new animated movie “Smallfoot” has just hit the theaters, and everyone you know is either talking about it or about to be. The cast includes famous actors and actresses like Zendaya Coleman, Lebron James, Channing Tatum, and James Cordon! You don’t want to miss out on this phenomenal cast. Another reason to watch the movie is that it carries an important lesson that anyone can learn from–it teaches viewers to never judge others by their appearance and to trust the people around you. This movie is just as entertaining for adults as it is for young children. The soundtrack has catchy songs, the adventure will keep everyone wanting more, and the movie’s stellar comedy will make anyone laugh.  The movie starts off introducing us to a civilization of Yetis who believe that humans are dangerous. It all starts with a Yeti known as Migo–while adventuring, he notices a human-sized shoe and footprints on the floor. Once he notices the strange footprint, he goes home, triumphantly chanting that he has found a “smallfoot.” Everyone dismisses his excitement and considers him to be delusional. However, Migo’s friends trust him and believe that there is another “creature” other than a Yeti. The adventurous band of friends decide to search for the mysterious human to prove that they are real.

 

The Yetis start by going separate ways to find the human and, eventually, come across many clues. Migo and Meechee head far away from their home into the unknown and soon find a human store. Eventually, a human appears and Migo attempts to talk to the young man. Much to his dismay, though, the human can’t understand what the Yeti is saying. Communication between the two doesn’t work very well since their languages are both different. On the other hand, the young human, played by James Corden, is shocked by the event. The movie soon reveals to the audience that he has studied Yetis his whole life. Despite the initial shock, the two begin to admire each others’ presences; the human begins to take pictures of the Yeti while vlogging his unexpected experience. Migo is confused by the young man’s actions, but continues to attempt to communicate with the man. James is taken aback by the Yeti’s insistence and believes that the creature is starting to threatening him. He suddenly faints from fear, and the Yeti cheerfully picks up the human to show off to the other Yetis back home. In conclusion, “Smallfoot” is a fun, feel-good movie that will engage the audience from the start to end. Don’t forget to hit the theaters when you have a chance! You don’t want to miss this amazing movie!

A Glimpse Inside NJROTC

NJROTC is a course at Lake Howell High School. NJROTC stands for Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps. NJROTC offers a lot of various opportunities and activities where you can learn about the navy and its principles as well as receive training to be leaders and better members of our society.

After school teams include armed basic, unarmed basic, armed expedition, unarmed expedition, color guard, academics, athletics, marksmanship, and orienteering. Armed basic is marching with rifles, while unarmed basic is standard drill marching. Armed expedition includes marching with rifles, like armed basic, but it also incorporates expert movements, such as spins and throws, with the rifles. Unarmed expedition, similarly, is like unarmed basic drill but with cool hand movements. Color guard features marching in a group of four, with two people holding rifles and two holding flags–normally the United States flag and another flag.

Academics is a competition between schools about military knowledge. The academics include general orders, principles of leadership, ranks, and chain of command.

Athletics is physical competition between schools, which involves students doing a series of runs, push-ups and sit-ups. Marksmanship is using air rifles in precision–in other words, shooting at targets. Orienteering is a competition where you have a compass and a map which you must use to reach certain points within a limited amount of time.

NJROTC also has other activities like fundraisers and community service. Community service and fundraisers include car washes, trash clean-ups–such as our local Dike Road clean-up and beach clean-up–as well as helping in sports events, like football games and swim meets.

The last activity a student can do in NJROTC is Leadership Academy, where three students from the school will be selected to train. The academy starts on June 17th and lasts a week. Students who attend wake up at 5:30 and go to sleep at 10:30, and must complete a physical training and get uniform inspections every day. Near the end of the academy, students participate in an inspection test, a physical fitness test (including a three mile run), and an academic test. Then, the students graduate if they passed all of the test and earn a silver cord for their uniform as a reward.

Malaysia Travel Review

Malaysia is often known as the melting pot of Asia; various ethnic groups (from an assortment of religious groups in the Malays to Indians and Chinese)  live there with the native Dayaks. The result of this mixture of cultures is an astounding array of cuisine, festivals, experiences, and people to meet. Aside from the cultural beauty, Malaysia is known for its idyllic natural beauty in the beaches, diverse animal species, equatorial national parks, ancient rainforests, and islands. Here is your guide to travelling the beautiful Malaysia (on the cheap):

 

Number 1 - City of Penang.jpg

  1. The City of Penang

Penang is the lesser-known foodie capital of both Asia and the world. Because of the ethnic diversity, cheap food, and authentic cooking traditions, the gastronomic scene in this city is nothing less than eye-opening and astounding. Street food is an integral part of Asian cuisine, and Penang does it best. From Georgetown’s Chinatown to its Little India, walking the streets of Penang offers a sensory overload of fresh spices and aromatic dishes being served. Start at the waterfront, ready to walk and eat your heart out, then go to Gurney Drive to continue around the city square. You can get anything from freshly-cooked meat to biryani, from chili dishes to Hainan Chicken Rice. One of the most iconic dishes of Malaysia is Char Koay Teow, a noodle dish that evolved in the Guangdong province in China and combines prawns stir-fried with flat noodles, soy and chili sauces, blood cockles, bean sprouts, and often other proteins like egg or chicken.

Number 2 - Batu Caves.jpg

  1. Batu Caves

Located in Selangor, the Batu Caves are the site of a Hindu temple and a large shrine of the Hindu God (Brahman), in addition to the three caves. If you like animals, monkeys are everywhere here, but make sure to guard your personal belongings, as they’re known to steal. The limestone on the caves is also perfect for rock-climbing enthusiasts. The official tour of the caves is around $50, but you can explore on your own for as little as $5– a strategy recommended more from various attendee reviews. Take a gander at some of the most beautiful forms of geological growth!

 

Number 3 - Langkawi Sky Cab.jpg

  1.  Langkawi Sky Cab

If the “steepest cable-car trip in the world” title isn’t enough for you,  the picturesque views of the stunning beaches and tropical forests surely will be. The Langkawi Sky Cab offers an astounding view for $17 per adult ticket–which may seem a little pricey, but the experience is priceless. It’s a cross between a closed Ferris wheel and a ski-lift (or vernacular), which easily makes it easy to feel on top of the world.

Number 4 - Teman Negara Hike.jpg

  1. Teman Negara Hike

While being in the major cities is fun and upbeat, nothing beats being out in nature, and with the Teman Negara Hiking Trails, it’s even easier to feel tranquility in the wraps of a beautiful rainforest– the oldest one in the world, that is. There are a myriad of trail options, from one that lasts an hour to one for nearly 7 days. You can even explore the caves or do their famous “canopy-walk” suspended among the tall trees and magnificent birds.

(Learn more at http://www.tamannegaratravel.com/taman-negara-trails-trek/)

 

Number 5 - Sepilok Orangutan Rehab Center.jpg

  1. Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre

$7 can take you far in Malaysia, but nothing might be as spectacular as the orangutan rehabilitation centre in the Sabah District of North Borneo in Malaysia. The centre primarily rehabilitates young orangutans orphaned as a result of illegal logging and deforestation or illegally being traded and kept as pets, and visitors can have a chance to see the renewal of life for these magnificent animals. Whether zoology is one of your interests or not, this experience is an unforgettable one.

“Riverdale” Review

Over the past year, a new television show has risen to popularity, inundating the Internet with hashtags, gifs and chatter surrounding it. It’s a drama-based show about teenaged high school students called Riverdale, named for the small town of Riverdale where it takes place. The show begins with the backgrounds of a few characters and of the town itself. Riverdale appears to be a quiet town, but it has a reputation for seeming suspicious, or even a little spooky. The town of Riverdale is separated into two parts; the south side and the suburban side. The south side is characterized as a gang whose members are known as the “Serpents”. They wear black leather jackets with snakes (also known as serpents) on the back, along with the words “South Serpents” to display who they are and what they represent. The Serpents live in rougher parts, and most of their lives have revolved around drugs and money. The suburban side, however, is a family friendly community with good schools, and is displayed as a town where nothing dramatic or disturbing happens….or so the residents had believed. The main characters soon find themselves caught in lies, an odd love triangle, drama, and even danger.

 
Once Riverdale was released onto Netflix, many teens were so hooked that they couldn’t not binge watch the show! It has created a whole new type of suspense, as it revolves around teens who step up and become detectives in order to solve mysteries and search for the hidden truth. But sometimes, the truth they find is not the truth that they wish to discover. Riverdale is a great show for people who love to watch suspenseful, dramatic and high school-based movies. It makes you feel attached to the show, almost as if you are there with the characters, and you get so involved that you try to solve the mysteries yourself. You will even catch yourself trying to find some hidden clues. Riverdale only has two released seasons on Netflix so far, however, I highly recommend watching it–you won’t regret it and it will leave you wanting more! Overall, I would have to rate the show an 8/10.

Hannah’s HHN Review!

Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights is a once-a-year event that garners tons of excitement from die-hard fans of both horror and Universal! The various haunted houses and scare-zones are dripping with nostalgia and creativity that cannot be missed; the sheer love of this event from the designers and actors to the fans and community can be felt with every step through the park. The animation for this year’s event was especially great because of the announcement of the Stranger Things haunted house, based off of the increasingly popular Netflix show. This year is easily Universal’s most ambitious event, with record-breaking amounts of mazes offered and “scareactors” performing. The houses all have a few things in common that make this event so memorable: strong atmospheres, great production, and well-timed scares. This year’s event is one of their best yet, and it’d be a mistake not to go to Halloween Horror Nights 2018. The houses this year were all impressive and done brilliantly; however, ranking the houses comes down to personal preference. Here is my ranking of the houses from least favorite to most favorite. 

 

Scary Tales: Deadly Ever After

This was my least favorite house from this year (which was disappointing, because I had high hopes for it this year). The stories were hard to distinguish, and although the premise was “twisted” traditional fairy tales, the transitions from scene to scene and the sets were confusing and muddled together. The inclusion of The Wizard of Oz was entertaining, and the opening of the house had a complete story line of a cursed childhood tale; the rest of the house, though, was underwhelming, even with the aerial scareactors and the use of smells.

 

Dead Exposure: Patient Zero

This might be one of the most polarizing houses thus far; on the one hand, some people love this house and are genuinely scared by it, but there are also those who hate this house and didn’t find it scary at all. I happen to fall into the category of hating it, which is why it’s ranked as one of my least favorite houses. This is partly because I didn’t understand the storyline–even with going through the house several time–and because the lights gave away the scares, so I wasn’t surprised when a scareactor jumped out. It aimed to disorient your senses with lack of lights and implement scares timed with periods of darkness. The design was too simplistic to accommodate the strobe lights and, overall, I think this house relied too heavily on the lighting rather than the actual house itself.

 

The Horrors of Blumhouse

This combination of “Happy Death Day” and “The First Purge” was ultimately disappointing because the stories were unrelated and executed inconsistently. The scares were repetitive, which follows the premise of “Happy Death Day” rather well. This house was disorienting due to the delivery of the same types of scares repeatedly and the actual design of the house; however, those same qualities helped immerse me into the “Happy Death Day” film. Overall, the house seemed to focus too much on “Happy Death Day” and not enough on “The First Purge.” This was one of the least impressive houses of this year’sdfafjvhcfajklhSDkhgDAjhgdaghkSghkXbhXCvgjXZvjhczvbXVZchXAFbhkXCZVJH line up.

 

Stranger Things

Undoubtedly the most highly-anticipated house this year was the Stranger Things house. The popularity of this franchise has exponentially increased in the last two years and has gained a major presence in our everyday lives; the amount of people that crowded to this house every single night of Halloween Horror Nights serves as evidence that this house is one of the most popular. Although it wasn’t my favorite house, it did manage to cover the major scenes of the first season with stunning production designs and a richly detailed soundstage that made it seem like you were in the Upside Down (an alternate reality from the TV series, for the uninformed). The scareactors were hard to distinguish from the actual characters, the Demogorgon was done remarkably well, and the soundstage was used effectively. The downfalls of this house are firstly the use of strobe lights–which, in my opinion, take away from the effectiveness of the scares and sets because they can impair your vision–and secondly the source material, which doesn’t allow for as much horror as some of the other properties.

 

Seeds of Extinction

This house contained some of the most beautiful interior design and integrated the scareactors into the scenes flawlessly. The set dressing of this maze was executed flawlessly, and it added to the overall experience; because of the plant costumes, the scareactors were able to blend in with their surroundings, essentially hiding in plain sight so they could scare you when you least expected it. This maze had some of the most well-crafted haunts and the concept of this house was truly memorable. The use of effects, such as rain and wind, helped make this an intense maze filled with hidden references to other Halloween Horror Nights events and detailed set pieces.

 

Slaughter Sinema

The balance of humor and scares makes this one of the more enjoyable houses of the year. In terms of houses which are intended to be funny, it’s probably the best scare house Halloween Horror Nights has ever done. The structure of this house allowed for the maze to flow effortlessly even though it switched from flick to flick. Using movie posters for the next scene was an effective way to differentiate one section from the next. The 1980’s style of monster movies showed the creativity of the designers and the fun they had creating this house; the scenes were the right balance between amusing and gory. The concept and the execution of this house did nothing but add to the overall experience with a hilarious queue video and entrance design.

 

Trick ‘r Treat

This maze is breathtaking; the amount of attention and care that this house received is obvious in their execution of the scenes and scares. From the initial haunted house façade to the grand finale, this house was so detailed and engrossing, I didn’t want the experience to end. The house manages to tell the story of the 2009 film that it’s based on without being an exact replica. The fact that Sam, the face of Trick ‘r Treat, was to be a dummy some nights and a real scareactor on other nights made me want to keep visiting this house. It was organized in a way that showcased the chapters of the plot and transitioned with simple black box scares that allowed the house to flow effortlessly.

 

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers

The return of Michael Myers is always welcome at Halloween Horror Nights; this year is the third year that he appeared at this event. Every year, this house is adored by fans of the franchise and the Horror Nights community as a whole. This was one of my favorite houses from this year’s roster; the energy in this house was upbeat and put me in a great mood. The scareactors portraying Michael Myers were incredibly interactive and it was clear that they enjoyed their roles. The delivery of the scares was perfectly timed, and the sheer amount of scareactors, including Mr. Myers and a ton of other characters, kept you on your toes. While the Michael Myers jump scares are repeated heavily, they are integral to the house–it would not be Halloween Horror Nights without Mr. Myers coming at you with a knife.

 

Carnival Graveyard: Rust in Pieces

The Carnival Graveyard house was one of the most interactive houses this year, with its multiple guest-activated triggers and two-story design. This house managed to mix fun and fear together to make a memorable experience. The scares in this house are unusual, which differentiated it from most Horror Nights houses. One of the selling points of this house is its scenic design–the set designs and costumes did a great job of capturing my imagination. The rusted rides and decaying decorations added to the eeriness of this house, especially with some of the scares being more subtle. The attention to detail in this house was heartwarming; if you’re a big fan of Halloween Horror Nights, there were more than a few nods to previous years and Universal’s history hidden in this house.

 

Poltergeist

This is my favorite house; it is unrivaled in terms of the storyline, the aesthetics, and the special effects. Supernatural and paranormal scenes are notoriously difficult to recreate, but the designers managed to create a story that was realistic without being gimmicky or cheesy. The maze features many iconic characters and scenes and, in my opinion, was one of the strongest houses this year. The designers somehow managed to create a tense atmosphere while simultaneously immersing guests into the classic plot of the movie. This house has the most complete storyline and stays true to the movie; it utilizes puppets, air bursts, and roof designs to fully encapsulate the classic 1982 film. The execution of this house is flawless and sets it apart from your typical haunted house.

Lake Howell Pep Rally

Lake Howell High School pep rallies aren’t like your average high schools. At Lake Howell, we have so much spirit that at every pep rally, each class participates in a competition to see who can show the most spirit, because when it comes to spirit, no other school can even come close! The class of 2019, which totals just under 600 students, is Lake Howell’s prestigious senior class, the largest one this year. This class comes to the pep rallies and games, and especially the football games, with so much enthusiasm and excitement. The class of 2020 is catching up, though–being the second largest class, they have big shoes to fill, especially when you consider that last year, the class of 2019, who were juniors at the time, won the spirit stick for the year. The spirit stick is a trophy handed to the class with the most spirit during the pep rallies.

 

The last pep rally Lake Howell had was a close call, but of course, that didn’t stop the class of 2019 from taking the spirit stick home. Each class gets their turn at the pep rally to try to prove that they have the most school spirit, and every pep rally begins with the freshmen and ends with the seniors for maximum hype. It’s tradition to “boo” the freshmen when they’re introduced, and at the latest pep rally, the juniors and seniors nearly had more “boos” to yell for the freshmen than they had spirit for their own class! On that Friday, there was a text sent out that stated the school’s principal, Mr. Kotkin, was going to give the spirit stick to the juniors, which caused quite a stir and made the pep rally much more thrilling for the underclassmen. When the pep rally began, Kotkin walked into the pep rally with a class of 2020 shirt. This almost made the seniors certain that they weren’t getting the spirit stick, but of course, the class of 2019 never gives up. In fact, the class of 2019 ended up winning the spirit stick because the commitment they showed to their class couldn’t be compared to any other.

 

Keep up the good work, class of 2019, and better luck next year to the class of 2020.

The Kavanaugh Circus

Written by Jaron Bullington, October 4th, 2018

This article is not meant to say that Doctor Ford or Kavanagh are guilty, or completely innocent, but instead bring light to the issue at hand- the ignorance of the due process of law.

For many weeks, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has been in the light of the mass media. Headlines upon headlines storm every person’s social media and newsfeeds, and it is one of the most heated subjects of this year. Why, though, you may ask, has Kavanaugh been at the center of this media attack? He was accused of rape and sexual assault, by Doctor Christine Blasey Ford.

Kavanaugh has been labeled many things these past few weeks- rapist, misogynist, etc.- but why is he labeled this way? Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, right? The fact of the matter is that there has been absolutely no corroborating evidence to confirm Ford’s original claim, something crucial to determining if Kavanaugh is guilty of said crime. The basic feature of U.S. law is the idea of due process, or the idea of an accused person being innocent until proven guilty in the court of law. It seems that this case, the case of Kavanaugh v. Ford, has had many people abandon this idea. Sparks have been flying in the #MeToo movement, and throughout the left, some outright saying or implying that Kavanaugh is indeed guilty. It is true, and undeniable that Doctor Ford’s statement in the Senate judiciary committee was heart wrenching, it felt meaningful. But, as is law, guiltiness is not determined by how someone acts or feels, instead, it is determined by cold, hard evidence. Doctor Ford does not have it.

There are many that say to “Believe the Victim”, or in this case, “Believe Doctor Ford”. This is a dangerous thing, and many do not realize why. If we inherently say that the accuser is a victim, before even determining if the accused is guilty, there is a problem. This ignores basic law, again, due process. The court should decide whether the accused is guilty, and then we can start to talk about the accused. What this creates is a sort of “guilty until proven innocent” culture, where the “victim” has bias toward them, not due to substantial evidence, but because they said that they were victimized.

This also hurts those that are victims of actual rape, and sexual assault. It demeans their claim, because of others who were trusted or “believed” but were proven wrong in the court of law. It is a “the boy who cried wolf” sort of situation; if so many people say that they were victimized by a person, but proven wrong in the court, other people who may have actually been victimized might not be trusted.

Overall, the Kavanaugh hearing has been an absolute circus; a parade. A total ignorance of the law. Our elected officials act like children in a daycare- arguing, screaming, and running away. If there’s one thing to take out of this (other than to trust in the due process of law), it is the fact that we, as the next generation, need to get out and vote.

“The Nun” Movie Review

Over the past weekend, I watched “The Nun,” a new movie that just released in the movie theaters September 6th. “The Nun” is a horror movie that ties in to the popular horror movie “The Conjuring;” it explains the story of “The Conjuring” and gives out answers towards the end that had been left unanswered at the end of “The Conjuring.”

 

“The Nun” is about an investigation within an abbey, a building occupied by a community of nuns, where a nun killed herself; the events begin when a priest, along with a nun, appear on the scene to find out what is going on. Little do they know, however, that there are many secrets they are going to discover. The movie opens with a young nun running for her life before she sacrifices her life in her abbey. A local man named Frenchie, who lives in the village, comes across the dead body, and the word soon gets out. A priest, Father Burke, is contacted by a church, and he goes with several other priests to investigate the scene. They are accompanied by Frenchie and a young nun named Irene, who has not completed her final vows. Frenchie, who found the body, leads both Father Burke and Sister Irene to the abbey. When they arrive, they immediately begin to feel weird vibes about the abbey and what is going on in it. The abbey is old, run down, and completely empty, with darkness all over–the perfect setting for a horror movie. The first person they come across looks suspicious and is covered head to toe in a black cloak, and she then assigns them where to stay and sleep. The first day they arrive, weird things begin to happen, and that is only the beginning.

 

The movie itself succeeding in scaring me to the point where I needed to cover one of my eyes and squint to look back at the screen. Overall, it was a good scare; however, I found it a bit odd due to some of the scenes. I would recommend this movie to people who love a good scare, especially the kind that pops out of nowhere, and people who love suspenseful movies. I would rate this movie a 6/10 compared to other horror films that I have watched.

Zodiac: Libra Season

September 23rd marks the beginning of the lovely Libra season. If you didn’t know, Libra is the 7th sign falling on the zodiac, after Virgo and before Scorpio. “Libra season” refers to the end of September and beginning of October.

Libras are balanced, fair, and social signs. They’re ruled by Venus, the planet of love. Libras often avoid conflicts, violence, and drama. Venus was the Roman goddess of love, which explains why Libras are so great in relationships. It also makes it clear to see that Libras are lovers, not fighters. Because we are currently under the influence of Libra, we have entered the 7th house of relationships, and it’s a great time to rekindle old sparks you wish to make flames again.

Libras have a strong sense of right and wrong because they can see almost every side of every situation, though they are indecisive. They are all about pleasing others, but do not do as much for themselves. They’re easily influenced by other people, making them easy targets for manipulation, but they do know how to stand up for themselves. Libras are one of the best signs to be around due to their ability to make anything fun, their drive to do what they please, their charismatic attitudes, and their seeming inability to be boring.

All zodiac signs have their element, and Libra’s is air. Other air signs include Gemini and Aquarius. Air signs are seen as people who are able to understand abstract reasoning; they’re great at analyzing and understanding others’ opinions without judgement. These signs are also about communication. They’re great at getting the word out, which drives both their perception and curiosity. They can be as swift as a summer breeze or can come at you like the winds of a hurricane, it depends how you catch them.

Some famous Libras: Kim Kardashian, Bruno Mars, Matt Damon, Will Smith, and Ryan Reynolds.

The Ketogenic Diet–What Is It?

It is well known that food has the power to cure many things, and help improve other ailments, such as depression[1], gastro-intestinal problems, and more. Food also has the power to help you lose fat weight, and gain muscle mass. One of the most prominent diets in recent years is the Ketogenic diet.

The ketogenic diet has been on the radar in social media, news, and TV, but nobody really understands what it entails. There have been a number of success stories, tales of incredible weight loss over a relatively short period; it seems like a thing of fiction. However, the truth is, it IS real, but there are many misconceptions about what/how to engage in this life-changing diet.

The keto diet is a diet that focuses mainly on cutting out carbs and sugar, while increasing the intake of fats and proteins. From a scientific standpoint, cutting out carbs and sugar exponentially decreases glucose in your body, which is a sugar that turns into fat (AKA, what produces belly fat and fat on other problematic areas). When you decrease glucose, your body starts to produces cells called “Ketones”, hence the name “Ketogenic;” these ketones use the fat which you already have in your body as an energy source. This process is known as “ketosis.”

The golden ratio is 2:1, meaning 2 parts fat to 1 part protein. The actual amount, in grams, depends on your body weight, but a typical adult male usually should get 100g of fat, 60g of protein, and only 40g of carbs. Again, these sizes depend on you, and your body. But the most important thing, which most of those who try the diet fail at, is to not eat ANY sugar. If you eat high amount, even low amounts of sugar, you are at risk of ruining the diet, and making yourself unhealthier than you started. The fat that you take in, combined with the sugar, creates a crazy amount of fat (on problematic areas).

If you control your diet, you will see results. Higher energy, fat loss, and overall improvement of health are just some of the many benefits of doing the ketogenic diet.[2] The ketogenic diet can even help with diabetes[3]. In the end, it cannot hurt you to try it. Cut sugar out of your diet for a week, limit your carb intake, and just try it. You will be surprised with the results, guaranteed.
