By Viriya Keo 12-F “With great power comes great responsibility”, said Spiderman’s uncle. The quote never rang so true to me until this moment. In the night after I was elected president, I lay in my bed thinking about what I could possibly contribute to the harmony between the school and the students. It’s one of the greatest responsibilities ever put on my shoulders. I didn’t know what to do to make everyone happy. So I decided to try and just make some of you happy. Firstly, before I talk about how I am going to do it, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me, for believing that I can handle the job. Secondly, to those who didn’t vote for me, I also want to thank you because you will make me push harder to prove myself. Now, let’s talk about what I will try to do. As I learned from being vice president last year, a president’s job is mainly to be the students’ voice within the school. She helps to develop ideas and projects from within the student body, as well as collecting the opinions, objections and suggestions a student may have and relaying them to the school. She can discuss any issues with the school and find a solution that will satisfy both parties. I will try to do all that to the best of my abilities. And I will try to tackle any problems and help to develop any student ideas and initiatives that might arise during my term as president. By Rithy Eang 12-C My name is Rithy Eang, and I am the new President of Zaman International School. The primary role of a school president is to help students put ideas into action, like working on our upcoming Solidarity week, as well as serving as a conduit between you and the administration and staff of Zaman School. I want to thank last year’s President, and the Executive Committee for leaving Zaman School in a position for another terrific year. My goal as President of the Boys’ Side is to be an approachable liaison between us and the school. Please feel free to contact me or the vice president with any questions, concerns, suggestions or ideas you would like to develop. Let’s work together to make the coming year at Zaman a good year in every way.

By Mehmet Esen To begin with, I would like to sincerely extend my warm greetings to all members of the Zaman Family on behalf of the Mathematics Department. The first activity of the 2012-2013 Academic year, the Checkers Competition, which has been organized by the mathematics department, has been completed successfully. I am so glad to point out that the students have been highly interested in the competition, with more than 450 students participating. Seventh and eighth grades competed in category C, ninth and tenth grades in category B and eleventh and twelfth grades in Category A, on both the girls’ and boys’ sides. Each category has its champion, runner up and third place. All winners are announced on the table. They have been awarded with surprise prizes. Undoubtedly, they have encouraged others to participate in other similar activities. Let’s congratulate all of them warmly on their great success. In addition to all that is mentioned above, we would like to show appreciation for all the efforts and contributions of our referee students in Grade 12. We thank them with all our heart on behalf of both the Math department and all participants. Finally, I would like to thank all participants. No matter how they were successful. Each of them is already a winner of our hearts. I wholeheartedly believe that everyone anticipates with great enthusiasm the next activity which will be organized by the Math department. I hope that all students had a very enjoyable and exciting time with us. See you at the next activity…

WATER

FACTS

1. Roughly 70 percent of an adult’s body is made up of water. 2. At birth, water accounts for approximately 80 percent of an infant’s body weight. 3. A healthy person can drink about three gallons (48 glasses) of water per day. 4. While the daily recommended amount of water is eight glasses per day, not all of this water must be consumed in the liquid form. Nearly every food or drink item provides some water to the body. 5. Drinking too much water too quickly can lead to water intoxication. Water intoxication occurs when water dilutes the sodium level in the bloodstream and causes an imbalance of water in the brain. 6. Water intoxication is most likely to occur during periods of intense athletic performance. 7. Soft drinks (for example coffee and tea) , while made up almost entirely of water, also contain caffeine. Caffeine can act as a mild diuretic, preventing water from traveling to necessary locations in the body. 8. Pure water (solely hydrogen and oxygen atoms) has a neutral pH of 7, which is neither acidic nor basic. 9. Water dissolves more substances than any other liquid. Wherever it travels, water carries chemicals, minerals, and nutrients with it. 10. Somewhere between 70 and 75 percent of the earth’s surface is covered with water. 11. Much more fresh water is stored under the ground in aquifers than on the earth’s surface. 12. The earth is a closed system, similar to a terrarium, meaning that it rarely loses or gains extra matter. The same water that existed on the earth millions of years ago is still present today. 13. The total amount of water on the earth is about 326 million cubic miles of water. 14. By the time a person feels thirsty, his or her body has lost over 1 percent of its total water amount. 15. The weight a person loses directly after intense physical activity is weight from water, not fat.

rds lo ve i p b hy y r g An By Davut Aslan

I’m pretty sure, without a doubt, that everyone knows Angry Birds. I am equally sure that you’ve played it, haven’t you? Let’s think about how it’s an educational tool that helps us understand the applications of some physics laws. First of all, maybe a better question might be, “What laws of physics are applied in the Angry Birds world?”. From gravity to force to wind resistance, the app has it all. Projectile motion with Angry Birds Projectile motion really is a breathtaking topic to study for students. The idea that the motion of footballs, tennis balls, and golf balls are all, on an essential level, controlled by the same force which we call Projectile motion. I suggest the best way to study physics would be to begin by playing with the laws of physics on Angry Birds. Exploring velocity and gravity There are two components to the velocity: the horizontal and the vertical. The horizontal component is constant; there are no forces acting on the birds horizontally (ignoring the friction caused by air resistance). It is enough for students to catch on and comprehend that there must be the horizontal and the vertical velocity as well as, gravity.

s you can see, we can work out the perfect angle for launching our birds the furthest and reaching on target. I have heard two completely different opinions about Angry Birds from people. Some of them think it is a great educational game. Most of them believe kids are wasting time playing Angry Birds. As you can guess, I am on the first side. I think Angry Birds is a great physics game. If you are concerned, there are many articles explaining the physics in the game.

Biology Facts

10

Humans share 60% of their DNA with a banana.

The tiny Water Bear (Tardigrade) can survive environments extreme enough to kill any other animal - with temperatures from as low as -273°C (close to Absolute Zero) to as high as 151°C.

The femur (thigh bone) is the largest and longest bone in the human body.

The Giant Kelp algea (Macrocystis pyrifera) is the fastest growing organism on earth and can grow at a rate of 70cm a day.

The jaw is the strongest muscle in the human body in terms of exerting force.

Dolphins only “sleep” half awake keeping one eye open while consciously breathing and floating on the water’s surface.

An adult Mayfly’s life is as short as a few minutes, but its body hatches for about a year.

The length between your elbow and hand (forearm) is equal to the length of your foot.

The nails on long fingers grow faster than short fingers; and fingernails grow four times faster than toenails.

If you fully stretch your arms out, the fingertip to fingertip length is almost exactly your body height.

There’s about 1.8m (6 ft) of DNA inside every cell nucleus in our body, and an average adult body contains around 50 trillion (million million) cells.

The lightest organ in the human body is the lung.

Some migratory birds have a “magnetic compass” in their body (a sense called Magnetoreception) to help them navigate using the Earth’s magnetic field.

To avoid predators, a mother Slow Loris licks its offspring with poison before sending them off to search for food.

The catfish father keeps the eggs in his mouth until they are ready to be hatched.

How to make

Turkish Coffee Tur kish Cof fee (1) Turkish coffee should be prepared in a “cezve”, a small pot with a long handle. For each serving, place one demitasse full of fresh water in the pot. (2) For each serving, put one heaped teaspoon of coffee in the pot along with sugar to taste (for medium, sweet coffee, one spoonful for each serving will do). (3) Stir the maxture thoroughly over a low heat. (4) When the coffee froths up, pour a little of the foam into each cup. (5) Return the cezve to the heat and as soon as the coffee froths up again, pour it out into the cups. Never stir the coffee it’s in the cups and be sure to sip it gently so as not to disturb the ground.

One last trip be Sreypov Chheng 12-E

The trip was an amazing experience. We got to see and experience what life would be like to go some-

where far away from home without our parents with us. It also taught us a lesson we didn’t expect to learn, to be an independent person. And none of this would have happened without our wonderful abla, Ms.Merve. All in all, this trip was a perfect way to say goodbye to Class 11E. It really was.

It started on the night before the 26th of June. I was lying on my bed feeling excited and couldn’t wait

for tomorrow to come. Normally, it would take me 5 minutes to fall asleep but that night was different. Somehow, I eventually found a way to fall asleep, even though I didn’t get that much of it; I woke up the next morning feeling fine, even better than fine. I was super pumped. I got dressed and headed for Lychheng’s house and had breakfast there. At about 6 in the morning, we left her house and went to the airport. It took a while for everyone to get there. Botum and Raksmey were the last to arrive. After that, we rushed to the gate to board our flight. Then off we went, 8 girls and 1 teacher on our way toward the best summer ever!

We arrived at Survanabhumi Airport in Bangkok around 8 in the morning. We got out of the airport

as fast as we could and headed straight to Siam Park for a fun day of riding roller coasters, taking pictures

efore senior year and enjoyjng every ride in there. All in all, it was a day well spent. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, we got to our hotel room. Our abla, Ms.Merve had rented one whole apartment for us. It was big, beautiful, and well-furnished. We dropped everything and ran with all we had to pick out the best room for ourselves. Because we were so tired, most of us fell asleep the minute we got on our beds. The next morning, we all got up and got dressed, but Ms.Merve was the first one to wake up and she made breakfast for all of us. With a full-stomach we went shopping all day. We went to different malls and bought tons of stuff. We had a lot of fun. That is until we got back to the apartment and realized we had spent most of our money for the trip on all that stuff. We were shocked, and honestly felt a little regretful to have spent that much money, but then we looked at our stuff and we saw how happy it made us. Plus, with the good quality of the products, it was definitely worth every penny.

The final day arrived, we were sad for a bit because when we got back to Cambodia, we wouldn’t see

each other again for another 2 months, but we weren’t going to let it ruin our last day together. So, we went shopping, again! We spent our last Baht’s and headed directly to the airport. We waited there for over an hour. We got so hungry; we decided to grab a bite. Then we were on our flight back to Phnom Penh.
