day to day and the members of this huge family are advancing their relationship with one another. The Alumni Dinner, which has been organized every year as a ZIS tradition for many years, took place at the Intercontinental Hotel on February 17, 2008. Our staff started the preparations almost a month ago and to make sure that all of our graduates will join, they phoned, texted and emailed each and every one of our graduates. Those who are still in Cambodia, numbered up to 176, were all invited. The number of the attendants contented us; over 150 of them joined the party.The program started with Mr. Osman's and Mr. Rany's speeches. Then a 2003 graduate Mr. Lida expressed his feelings. Following him, Miss Eliza from 2007 batch told about her feelings about ZIS Family. A 2002 graduate Mr. Sok Oudom could not make it to the party that night as he is currently studying his Master's degree in the USA, but he did not neglect us; he joined the party with a video-

message entitled “friendship�. 2007 graduate Miss Kuch Sar entertained the crowd with a Turkish song. Then Miss Neary, 2005 graduate, sang an English song followed by a Khmer song from 2007 graduate Mr. Piseth. Lottery draws, presents, some interesting video clips were the other activities of this wonderful night. In his speech, our principal Mr. Osman Karaca pointed out that the growth of ZIS family and the increase of communication among the ZIS Family members

made them glad. He also announced that a facility room for the ZAMAN graduates will be designed and serving very soon. The dinner party, extending to almost three hours, ended with photo-taking and good-wish exchanges. At the end of the program, our staff presented their gifts to the participants. And the graduates extended their special thanks to the ZIS staff for creating such an important opportunity and a warm atmosphere for them.

EDUCATION

Chemistry Club

In academic year 2007-2008, students of ZIS are having a variety of extra-curricular activities, which were arranged by the school. Chemistry club was opened among them, and it is the only science club beside c o m p u t e r. T h e r e a r e 2 3 members from 5 different classes of girl section. The students are given 2 times, each one is 50 minutes in a week. We spend the gold hour not just to learn lessons of chemistry, but also to experience numerous of chemical experiments and observe each one attentively. Every member will have to conduct 2 experiments with their group, vary group take turns throughout the year. 18th of September 2007, was when this club began, until now we have been through a lot of demonstrations such as Invisible Painting, Ammonia Fountain, Potassium Chlorate with Sugar, just to name a few. We always remember our very first experiment by 11F, Collapsing Can. They were so exciting, especially to those who are interested in chemistry like chemistry club’s students. We laughed and enjoyed watching the performance of our members. After demonstration, there were questions of what,

Moreover, we believe that it will be wonderful to take look at what we have done in the club. This club is grateful as it gives us chance to improve our knowledge within facts of science. Chemistry has been developed so far and it takes important role in daily life because of great use of chemical compounds. Chemistry gives us surprising fact sometime. Did you know that sugar on your coffee table will produce smoke and fire if you drop some potassium chlorate on it? You are There were competitions among welcome to our website: us, to find the group with the best work for their project. One of the http://chemistryclub.awardspac project was Sinking and Floating e.com/ Boat, the winners were 10E and 1 0 F. N o t o n l y t h e c l u b coordinator but also students in chemistry club encourage each other and we know how to appreciate our friends. This makes us energetic! club hour has become the greatest time of the day, even though we are all tired during the last school hour. Watching scientific video is included in our activities as well. This is a way we could see how students learn chemistry from other places. We also record our own videos and take some photographs so as to express our skill through media. why and how, so the group would have to give explanations for their experiment. Sometimes our club coordinator, Mr. Mustafa D u r, s h o w e d u s a m a z i n g reactions in order to give some ideas, for our own demonstrations and how to observe the reactions. He also makes the club members become active with racing activities and by giving us project, so that we do research and try to solve problems regarding chemistry.

With this website we give details of every experiment and necessary lectures we have studied. If you think chemistry is a very small part of ordinary lives, then think again. We are thankful for what we have learnt from the club. All of us are happy to have choosen this club. Finally, this is a message from chemistry club members “Be aware of chemistry”.

SCIENCE

HOW HYDROELECTRIC ENGERGY WORKS The Hydropower Resource On Earth, water is constantly moved around in various states, a process known as the hydrologic cycle. Water evaporates from the oceans, forming into clouds, falling out as rain and snow, gathering into streams and rivers, and flowing back to the sea. All this movement provides an enormous opportunity to harness useful energy. The United Nations estimates that the total "technically exploitable" potential for hydropower is 15,090 terawatthours per year, or 15 trillion kilowatt-hours, equal to half of projected global electricity use in 2030. [1] Only about 15 percent has been developed so far. [2] While much of the remaining potential may not be economically or environmentally suitable to develop, there are still significant opportunities for new development in regions like the former Soviet Union, South Asia, and South America.

hydropower is even more important. For example, the Pacific Northwest generates more than two-thirds of its electricity from 55 hydroelectric dams. [6] The Grand Coulee dam on the Columbia River is Hydropower provides one-fifth of one of the largest dams in the the world's electricity, second world, with a capacity of nearly only to fossil fuels. Worldwide 6,500 megawatts (MW). capacity is 776 gigawatts (GW), with 12 percent in the United In addition to very large plants in States, nine percent in Canada, the West, the United States has and eight percent in Brazil. [3] many smaller hydro plants. In When completed, China's Three 1 9 4 0 t h e r e w e r e 3 , 1 0 0 Gorges Dam, poised to become hydropower plants across the the largest hydroelectric project country, but by 1980 that number in the world with 18.2 GW of had fallen to 1,425. Since then, a capacity, will move China ahead number of these small plants of Brazil. Globally, hydroelectric have been restored; there are capacity has more than doubled currently 2,378 hydro plants (not since 1970, and another 100 GW including pumped storage) in is currently under construction. operation. [7] These plants In the United States, hydropower account for only a tiny fraction of has grown steadily, from 56 GW the 80,000 dams that block and in 1970 to more than 95 GW divert our rivers. As a result, today. [4] As a percentage of the there is a significant opportunity U.S. electricity supply mix, for growth according to the however, it has fallen to 10 N a t i o n a l H y d r o p o w e r percent, down from 14 percent Association, which estimates 20 years ago, largely as a result that more than 4,300 MW of of the rapid growth in natural gas additional hydropower capacity power plants. In terms of can be brought online by e l e c t r i c i t y p r o d u c t i o n , upgrading existing facilities. [8] hydropower plants account for Worldwide there is a great deal of a b o u t s e v e n p e r c e n t o f growth in small hydro projects. America's current power needs. T h e Wo r l d E n e r g y C o u n c i l [5] estimates that under current policies, installed capacity of In some parts of the country, small hydro will increase from

about 48 GW today to 55 GW by 2010, with the largest increase coming from China. [9] More than half of the current global small hydropower installed capacity is in China, with plans to develop a further 10,000 MW in the next decade. [10]

moving with sufficient speed and volume to turn a generator. Roughly speaking, one gallon of water per second falling one hundred feet can generate one kilowatt of electrical power. Hydroelectric generation can also work without dams, in a process known as diversion, or run-of-the-river. Portions of water from fast-flowing rivers, often at or near waterfalls, can be diverted through a penstock to a turbine set in the river or off to the side. The generating stations at Niagara Falls are an example of diversion hydropower. Another run-of-the-river design uses a traditional water wheel on a floating platform to capture the kinetic force of the moving river. While this approach is inexpensive and easy to implement, it doesn't produce much power. The entire Amazon River, if harnessed this way, would produce only 650 MW of power.

An important issue now in the United States is the re-licensing of hydropower plants. Hydro plants have very long lives; the Grand Coulee dam, for example, has been in operation since 1942. The federal government issues licenses for all dams for a 30- to 50-year period. In 1993, for instance, over 200 licenses were due for renewal, amounting to 2,000 MW of capacity. Relicensing some of these dams should require dam owners to find ways to reduce environmental impacts. U n f o r t u n a t e l y, i n t h e 2 0 0 5 Energy Policy Act, the hydropower licensing law was amended as part of the Energy Policy Act of 2005, making it more difficult for the public to Another type of hydropower, participate in the re-licensing though not a true energy source, is pumped storage.

GENERAL Continued from page 3 When the power is needed, it is released back into the lower reservoir through turbines. Inevitably, some power is lost, but pumped storage systems can be up to 80 percent efficient. There is currently more than 90 GW of pumped storage capacity worldwide, with about onequarter of that in the United States. Future increases in pumped storage capacity could result from the integration of hydropower and wind power technologies. Researchers believe that hydropower may be able to act as a battery for wind power by storing water during high wind periods. [12], [13] There are a variety of turbines employed at hydropower facilities, and their use depends on the amount of hydraulic head at the plant. The most common are Kaplan, Francis, and Pelton wheel designs. Some of these designs, called reaction and impulse wheels, use not just the kinetic force of the moving water but also the water pressure. The Kaplan turbine is similar to a boat propeller, with a runner (the turning part of a turbine) that has three to six blades, and can provide up to 400 MW of power. [14] The Kaplan turbine is differentiated from other kinds of hydropower turbines because its performance can be improved by changing the pitch of the blades. The Francis turbine has a runner with nine or more fixed vanes. In this turbine design, which can be up to 800 MW in size, the runner blades direct the water so that it moves in an axial flow. [15] The Pelton turbine consists of a set of specially shaped buckets that are mounted on the outside of a circular disc, making it look similar to a water wheel. Pelton turbines are typically used in high hydraulic head sites and can be as large as 200 MW. The ability to meet power demand fluctuations is an advantage of hydro plants with reservoirs. Unlike run-of-theriver plants, which produce power around the clock, hydro plants with dams are typically used only when the power is most needed. Utilities save up the water, letting it loose only during peak times. Hydro plants, especially the large older plants built from the 1930s to the 1950s, are commonly the leastexpensive source of electricity.

Fenerbahce win thriller at Sevilla Tuesday 4 March 2008 Match report by Chris Burke from Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium Volkan Demirel turned from villain to hero to send Fenerbahçe SK into the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals for the first time, saving three spot-kicks after hosts Sevilla FC had won 3-2 to take their first knockout round tie the distance. Redemption Two errors inside the first nine minutes from the visiting keeper had given Sevilla the perfect start, allowing Daniel Alves and Seydou Keita to score, but two Deivid goals either side of a Frédéric Kanouté effort forced extra time following Fenerbahçe's 3-2 first-leg victory in Istanbul. Sevilla keeper Andrés Palop denied Edu after no further goals were forthcoming, before Volkan Demirel grabbed the headlines with saves from Julien Escudé, Enzo Maresca and Alves.

The Fenerbahçe No1 was returning to action after being suspended at the weekend, and still looked rusty when Keita then thrashed a shot through his gloves from distance. Frustrated, Early drama Zico's men began collecting yellow cards, including one for T h e l o c a l f a n s p u t o n a Gökhan Gönül, who misses the captivating show before kick-off, next match. full of colour and chanting, and their favourites soon gave them Fenerbahçe revival the goal they craved. Kanouté won a foul 20 metres out and, Volkan Demirel made some with five minutes on the clock, amends in the 22nd minute, Alves curled in the free-kick via keeping out Keita, and by that Volkan Demirel's misjudged point Fenerbahçe had earned attempt to save. That put Sevilla themselves a lifeline from a ahead on away goals and they Mehmet Aurélio corner which quickly took advantage of the found Deivid unmarked just keeper's shattered confidence. inside the area. The Brazilian

fired hard into the bottom left corner for his third goal of this season's competition, before his compatriot Alex and left-back Gökçek Vederson came close to putting Fenerbahçe back on top overall. Kanouté volley

drove the ball just over from the left. Attacking substitution Sevilla were starting to betray nerves by this point, while Zico attempted to give his charges an edge by introducing Semih Þentürk for Selçuk Þahin. The substitute had come on to score the winner in Istanbul, yet after Keita and Alves had both gone close at the other end, it was Deivid who once again made the difference. With eleven minutes remaining he was picked out at the far post and took his moment to fire past the helpless Palop after his initial attempt had come back off the woodwork.

If that signalled a resurgence from the Turkish champions, Kanouté had other ideas and restored Sevilla's two-goal cushion four minutes before the break. The striker chested down Alves's pass and volleyed in courtesy of a deflection off Gökhan Gönül. The visitors refused to wilt, however, and it took a goalline clearance from Christian Poulsen to stop Edu providing an immediate reply in Late chances first-half stoppage time Both sides had late chances to clinch victory but the game Intelligent football headed into extra time where, If Sevilla's early goals had made despite producing ten goals in for a thrilling contest, the double the preceding 180 minutes, UEFA Cup winners appeared neither team could deliver the more intent on defending their decisive punch.
