Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team's court under organized rules.
The complete rules are extensive. But simply, play proceeds as follows: A player on one of the teams begins a 'rally' by serving the ball (tossing or releasing it and then hitting it with a hand or arm), from behind the back boundary line of the court, over the net, and into the receivinga team's court. The receiving team must not let the ball be grounded within their court. They may touch the ball as many as three times. Typically, the first two touches are used to set up for an attack, an attempt to direct the ball back over the net in such a way that the serving team is unable to prevent it from being grounded in their court.
The rally continues, with each team allowed as many as three consecutive touches, until either (1): a team makes a kill, grounding the ball on the opponent's court and winning the rally; or (2): a team commits a fault and loses the rally. The team that wins the rally is awarded a point, and serves the ball to start the next rally. A few of the most common faults include:
  • causing the ball to touch the ground outside the opponents' court or without first passing over the net;
  • catching and throwing the ball;
  • double hit: two consecutive contacts with the ball made by the same player;
  • four consecutive contacts with the ball made by the same team.
  • net foul: touching the net during play.
The ball is usually played with the hands or arms, but players can legally strike or push (short contact) the ball with any part of the body.
A number of consistent techniques have evolved in volleyball, including spiking and blocking (because these plays are made above the top of the net, the vertical jump is an athletic skill emphasized in the sport) as well as passingsetting, and specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures.

Wau Bulan

Wau bulan is an intricately designed Malaysian moon-kite (normally with floral motifs) that is traditionally flown by men in the Malaysian state of Kelantan. It is one of Malaysia's national symbols, some others being the kris and hibiscus. The reverse side of the fifty-cent coin of Malaysia (1989 series) features an intricately-decorated wau bulan with a hummer on top. The logo of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) is also based on this kite.

There are many types of wau in Malaysia, each with its own specialty. Wau kucing (cat kite) and wau merak (peacock kite ) are some of the variants.

Wau bulan got its name from the crescent moon-like shape of its lower section (bulan means "moon" in Bahasa Malaysia). Given the right colour, wau bulan apparently resembles a rising crescent moon when flown.

The size of wau bulan is bigger than any other Malaysian traditional kite. The typical size is 2.5 meters in width and 3.5 meters in length. This make the decorations painted on the kite's body to be visible when it is flown high in the air. to make it more distinctive, wau bulan is normally decorated with large, strong-coloured patterns.

A Good Teacher Never Stop Learning

Think about the phrase, a good teacher never stop learning. What does the phrase mean to you? Recognize that everyone is a teacher through our actions and sharing of knowledge. As a parent, from the moment you make your children up each day you begin the teaching process. Our children are continuously receiving learning stimulus and seeking knowledge from you and the environment around them. As a manager, coach, teacher, professor, consultant or athlete, your actions are observed, often imitated and directly reflected in your span of influence. The aspect of never stop learning should be taught to your children, workforce personnel, students, players and peers.

 Be aware, the decisions you make influence and teach those around you. the phrase, a good teacher never stop learning, is grounded in the belief you consciously maintain an open-minded approach to situations that arise daily. Keeping an open mind allows the cycle of learning to be part of all phases of your personal and professional life.

If by profession you are a teacher, your realize the interactive nature of teaching and learning directly or indirectly imprinted to your peers, students, children, and grandchildren. By keeping an open mind, you have recognized one of the most fundamentally important aspects of the teaching process. I know there are professional teachers out in the world today with many more great lessons to share; I encourage you to do so. Do you remember the favorite teachers of your past and what made them so good? I,II tell you....they kept an open mind to your input, presented choices to you, explored your ideas and shared their knowledge in a fun and interactive way. Good teachers offer two or three suggestions as a way to influence a choice. This technique is a terrific first step in allowing someone to realize the power behind making decisions, and at the same time learning from the outcome.

keep the door open to learning, seek new information and interact with different people as often as you can. Watch out, soon you will grow and want to seek out knowledge and subject matter may have never considered before. Be open to challenges and questions you are confronted with from your peers, student and children. Take on those questions in a positive manner and discover the possibility there may be different ways to perform tasks or solve problem.

All of life is a journey which paths we take, what we look back on, and what we look forward to is up to us. we determine our destination, what kind of road we will take to get there. Life is a long journey, which has to be travel by very existing life form. Some journey is short span while some are to extensive. In this journey, we have to get ahead of from several phases. We may come across many hurdles. It's not always a bed of roses. You will find thorns on the way. some are venomous, which can take life.

A great personality said this" Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming." We meet many travellers in the track of our journey. Everyone has his or her own destiny. Some voyagers choose their destiny with their co-travellers and walk with them hand-in -hand to a certain distance showing beautiful dreams and creating an unbreakable attachment. Only few stand to their word, but most of them are so selfish that they utilize for their selfishness and finally leave them in the midst of a storm. This phase of life is too harsh. Then there is only loneliness and memories which kill us every minute. You feel as though you have lost your way and your destiny. Life seems to be aimless and the journey more tiring and difficult, as you has to live a lifeless life. the memories and loneliness keeps haunting your until your death.

In the journey of life, we meet to make memories, we part to preserve them. We may meet many travellers extending hands to make our journey smooth. But we are in a dilemma "whether to trust or not?" This becomes the biggest issue. But the journey continues until we get the call from God.

"Life is journey, what a journey it is?
Mo one understood it, no one know it."

A muscle cramp is an involuntarily and forcibly contracted muscle that does not relax. When we use the muscle that can be controlled voluntarily, such as those of our arms and legs, they alternately contract and relax as we move our limbs. Muscle that support our head, neck, and trunk contract similarly in a synchronized fashion to maintain our posture. A muscle (or even a few fibers of a muscle) that involuntarily ( without consciously willing it0 contracts is in a "spasm". If the spam is forceful and sustained, it become a cramp. Muscle cramp cause a visible or palpable hardening of the involved.

Picture of the anatomy of muscle
Muscle cramps can last anywhere from a few seconds to a quarter of an hour or occasionally longer. It is not uncommon for a camp to recur multiple times until it finally goes away. the cramp may involve a part of a muscle, the entire muscle, or several muscles that usually act together, such as those that flex adjacent fingers. Some cramps involve the simultaneous contraction of muscles that ordinarily move body parts in opposite directions.

Cramps can extremely common. Almost everyone ( one estimate is about 95%) experience a cramp at some time in their life. Cramps are common in adults and become increasingly frequent with aging. However, children also experience cramps.

Any of the muscles that are under our voluntary control (skeletal muscles) can cramp. Cramps of the extremities, especially the legs and feet, and most particularly the calf (the classic "charley horse"), are very common. Involuntary muscles of the various organs (uterus, blood vessel wall, bowels, bile and urine passages, bronchial tree, etc.) are also subjects to cramps.

As we wake up every morning, we hear the sound of nature .As THEY wake up every morning, THEY hear the sound of war. Everyday we go to school to gain our ambition,but everyday THEY will fight for their homeland. As we can eat together with our family during dinner, some of them eat alone without other family members. Who are THEY?. They are the people of PALESTINE!
We should be thankful because our country still remain in peace without any war after we gain our independent. We can go to school and go to work everyday and laugh with our friends and have fun together with them. However,nowadays people in Palestine can't feel the peace like we do. Everyday, the wake up in the morning and ready to fight for the religion, pride and honour. Their human right have been taken by the demon Israel who without feel any shame claim Palestine as their country.

What make me so upset is where is the other muslim country when Israel army attack the people of Palestine?. Why they don't send any help when the palestine need them as we know that Palestine is very important country for the muslim. The Israel want to demolished our Al-Aqsa mosque that we have in Palestin. Do we just wanna let them to do this without even trying to protect it?

Don't stop to pray for the Palestine everyday because we know pray is the Muslim main weapon. Eventhough  we might not able to fight alone which them, but still we can't fight for them by boycott the product of Israel because as we spend our money to buy their product, it is same as we help them to buy weapon to kill the people in Palestin. Act know!!

Rugby is a tough game play by gentleman. Rugby, a type of football game, taking its name from the English public preparatory school. Derived from soccer or association football, rugby in turn was the forerunner of American football. Kicking and dribbling with the foot are a part of rugby. However, continuous passing of the ball is its most characteristic feature. The game enjoys greatest popularity in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and France.

Rugby developed through an infraction of the rules by a Rugby School boy, William Webb Ellis, during a soccer match in 1823. The ball-carrying play by Ellis spread to a number of other English public schools, and in 1839 student at Cambridge University gave it a trial during an intramural game, which they called "Rugby's game". By the 1860's two distinct types of football had developed- handling and nonhandling. In 1863 supporters of the nonhandling game formed the Football Association ( association football or soccer. In 1871, 21 amateur clubs established the Rugby Football Union and drew up the original laws of the game.

The amateur game is played with 15 men on each team and is called "Rugby Union". The professional game is called "Rugby League", and although it resembles the amateur game in many respects, there are difference in the laws or rules and only 13 players on a team. The object of the game is for each side to attempt to ground the ball beyond their oppenent's line and score the greater number of points within two 40-minute periods of play

Assalamualikum and good evening.

My name is Nik Mohd Fauzan Bin Nik Abdullah.I'm tall person but not a short person. I am twenty years old boy of medium height.I am a cheerful person. I love to smile and laugh. When I come across an interesting thing, sometimes other people may think that it is not funny but I still laugh and laugh without reasons. I was born in Kuala Lumpur in 1991. I don't have any memory living in Kuala Lumpur because I was still baby on that time. My family moved to Kelantan when I was 1 year old.

After the UPSR examination, I've continue my secondary school study at Sekolah Menengah Sains Tengku Abdullah, a boarding school which is situated in Pahang state. I'm active person at that school. I've represented the school in many sport event such as ragbi, badminton, athletes and football.I am also a prefect at my school and the leader of yellow sport house. Maybe because being so active, I don't feel interest in my study. My SPM result was not realy good.

Next, I continue my study at Kolej Matrikulasi Negeri Sembilan. Study here is very tough for me especially in Biology subject. Since my primary school, my Science subject result is not stable. Sometimes good and sometimes not good. Nevertheless, I'm not give up and will give my best for the final exam because I will be satisfied even my result is not good because I have done my best.

Finally, now I've continue my study at Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris as a physical educational student. My target when I will be a sport teacher at any school after finished my study, I want to born many quality sport student so the will be the best among the best. InsyaALLAH. Thank you :)

Today I would like to share about some topic that I've study in Anatomy and Fisiology lecture. It's about muscle. What is the major function of muscles?. Do you know what make some athlete cramp their muscle during their training and performance?. The major function of our muscle is to produce motion. There are three type of vertebrate muscles, smooth muscle, cardiac muscle and skeletal muscle. Smooth muscle and cardiac muscles are involuntary muscles whereas skeletal muscle are called voluntary muscles because they are under voluntary control.

Smooth muscle lines the walls of hollow organs such as arteries and veins, the digestive tract, the urinary bladder and the uterus. Each muscle fibre consists of a single, elongated spindle-shaped cell containing one centrally located nucleus. The muscle fibre do not contain visible cross striations. The contractile protein filaments are not arranged in the same pattern as in the skeletal or the cardiac muscle.

Next is the cardiac muscle. Cardiac muscle are the tissues that make up heart. It cells have a single nucleus, many mitochondria and are striated. The muscles cells are connected to one another by intercalated discs. The muscles fibres branch and form bridges with one another to form a network like arrangement. The cardiac muscle bring about the continuous, rhythmic contractions of the heart and pump blood around the body. Do you know that our heart size is about our fist size?.

Lastly is the skeletal muscle. It is normally arranged in antagonistic pairs and mostly attached to bones by tendons. They bring about movement of the skeleton and organs such as the eyeball and the tongue. An individual skeletal muscle contain several bundles of fibres bound by connective tissues. The nuclei peripherally located beneath sacrolemma.

Thats all I can share with you guys for now and I will continue talk about this later on about how athletes gain muscle cramp during their training and performance. Thank you for spending your time read this. I hope you can gain useful information about what I have wrote :)

A Busy Week

The first week I was a little bit busy because of my credit hours are still inadequate. I have to move to find the lectures for their signature. I'm now no longer live in resindential colleges but has rented a house at Taman Sri Indah which is situated near to the campus.

 Actually what makes me realy tired this week is because I still don't have my own transport that could facilitate my journey to college, so I have to go to college by walking and sometimes has to ask my housemate to send me to campus by their motocycle.

 What makes me unhappy is because the university side who is responsible has lock the door of the side of the gateway at northen side which before this become the way student who rent houses in the area of the campus to get into the campus. Now we have to walk a little bit far to the door on the east or the west to go to the campus.

 I was lucky because my parents will send my bike next week, so I will no longer trouble my housmate to send me to college after this again except for emergency. I hope the responsible person will take action about the gate for the good of the students who lives near campus.

Welcome TO MY Blog Post!

I'm so happy that I have already created a new blog in Blogger.com. In this blog, I will share my life as an UPSI student in second years. This is also part of my assignment that has been given from Miss Fairus Bt Ahmad Daud, my English Communication II lecture. Thanks to her for making me an afford to create my own blog.
