Sea stars, commonly called, “starfish” are not fish. Sea stars live underwater, but that is where their resemblance to fish ends. They do not have gills, scales, or fins. Sea stars live only in saltwater. Sea water, instead of blood, is actually used to pump nutrients through their bodies via a 'water vascular system.'
Also, sea stars move by using tiny tube feet located on the underside of their bodies. With so many little legs, starfish can reach enormous speeds. Adult sunflower sea stars can move at the astonishing speed of one meter per minute using 15,000 tube feet. Tube feet also help sea stars hold their prey.
Sea stars are related to sand dollars, sea urchins, and sea cucumbers, all of which are echinoderms, meaning that they have five-point radial symmetry. However, this does not mean that all sea stars have five arms and species with 10, 20, or even 40 arms exist! If one of these arms is lost, a sea star has the amazingly ability to regenerate it.

My Most Unforgettable Holiday
In 2015, I went to Derawan Island with my friends and that marks my most memorable holiday ever!
In June, our school was having summer holiday, so we thought to ourselves that it shouldn't go to waste. We quickly browsed the internet to find a good holiday destination and after an hour of heated debate, the four of us agreed to give Derawan Island a try. It was purely out of curiousity as none of us had been there before.
We arrived at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport at 05.30 a.m. as the flight was at 07.00 a.m. First, we flew to Balikpapan and waited for about an hour to continue the flight to Berau. As soon as we touched down in Berau, my friend called the tour agent that we had contacted earlier in Jakarta. They had got a car ready to take us to Labuan Batu. From Labuan Batu, we took a speedboat for about an hour to Derawan Island. It was such a long trip to Derawan but it all paid off as soon as we saw how beautiful the island was.
My friends and I were quickly ushered to our rooms in the resort. It was fantastic! The rooms were in a cottage that was situated right above the sea. So we only had to step out the terrace to find ourselves out in the open sea! After unpacking our luggages and washing up, we went to the dining hall to grab our dinner. The dinner was only simple seafood dishes. The surrounding totally enhanced the dining experience, making the food taste much better.
The following day, we took a speedboat tour, hopping from one island to another Our first trip stop was Kakaban Island where we hiked to reach the lake and swam among stingless jellyfish. The last time I heard, there were only three places in the world that have stingless jellyfish; two of them in Indonesia! Isn't that great? The next stop was the Sangalaki Island where we got to visit sea turtle conservation and took lots of pictures with sea turtle babies. They were so cute!
Our last stop was the Maratua Island where we were able to feed fish and see a three-legged sea turtle. The three-legged sea-turtle wasn't born that way.
We were told that it was swimming in the open sea when it was still a baby then its leg got caught in plastic trash and couldn't grow even when the sea-turtle reached adulthood. One of the island's guards saw the sea-turtle and saved it. He also untangled the plastic trash that bound the sea-turtle's leg but it was too late. Since then, the sea-turtle is kept in a special space next to the resort in Maratua Island and the guards take turns feeding it to ensure its survival. This is why we should never litter and endanger other creatures! After Maratua Island, we headed back to Derawan Island to catch a late dinner and turned in.
The following morning, we wake up early and ate our breakfast in the dining room. Then, the driver drove us back to the airport so we could catch a flight back to Jakarta. We arrived at Jakarta, exhausted but terribly happy! It was the most unforgettable trip I have ever experienced so far!

The Great Wall, one of the greatest wonders of the world, was listed as a World Heritage by UNESCO in 1987. Just like a gigantic dragon, it winds up and down across deserts, grasslands, mountains and plateaus, stretching approximately 21,196 kilometers from east to west of China.
With a history of about 2,700 years, some of the Great Wall sections are now in ruins or have disappeared. However, the Great Wall of China is still one of the most appealing attractions all around the world owing to its architectural grandeur and historical significance.
The Great Wall of China is the longest man-made structure in the world. Traversing northern part of the country, what was a huge military line of defense in the past has now become a unique world heritage site and a symbol of China. With a total length of 21,196.18 km (13,170.70 miles), equal to half the length of the Equator, the Great Wall of China is the longest feat of human engineering. The average height of the walls is 6 to 7 meters (20 to 23 feet), and the highest is 14 meters (46 feet). The average width is 6.5 meters (21.3 feet).
Having a wonderful Great Wall tour is a must for one’s China trip. Along this super long wall, Beijing ranks the top destination for its proper maintenance of the abundant wall relics of the Ming Dynasty. Badaling and Mutianyu are best sections to see neat and complete walls and beacon towers; while Jinshanling and Simatai offer challenging Great Wall hiking routes with open and wild scenery.

Try the following tips
1. Stay out of the sun during peak hours. While these times may vary slightly depending on the season and where you live. You should be indoors if all possible between 10:00 and 15:00.
2. Keep covered up. Floppy hats and large umbrellas work well and so do cover-ups. Long-sleeved cotton shirts are excellent for hiking, cycling etc; see your sports store for special brands that allow breathing as well as cover-up.
3. Use sunscreen on any exposed areas. An SPF of 45+ is recommended for it allows even the fairest skinned folks to stay out in the sun for a few hours before reapplying. Try chopstick on your lips. Follow the instructions on sunscreen carefully. Always reapply after leaving the water, as it’ll have washed off.
4. Don’t forget hard-to-reach places. Don’t forget to cover the backs of your knees, back of your neck, elbows and back of your ears (if you have short hair). Feet should also be included if you are wearing sandals, flip-flops or going bare-foot. Even these places can hurt a lot with sunburn.
5. Don’t lie in the sun purposefully seeking a tan. This is not only damaging to your skin but might burn you the first few times you try it at the beginning of the season. If you want to tan, do it gradually and sensibly, with short exposure and building up over time.
6. Put a small amount of oil or sunscreen in your hair so you will avoid burning your scalp. Or cover it with a hat. Some shampoos and hair conditioners contain SPF protection.

Ragunan Zoo management in South Jakarta has complained about a plan to implement an e-ticketing system supported by the JakOne Card, an e-money mobile app from city-owned Bank DKI.
Ragunan head Dina Himawati has particularly objected to a point that requires the zoo to deposit Rp 20 billion (US$1.49 million) to Bank DKI for the implementation of the system.
"We have no idea how the plan works. The money is deposited to the bank, in our account. We feel like the Rp 20 billion is used for the operation of the card, including for top-up funds," Dina said at the City Council building in Central Jakarta as quoted by kompas.com.
Dina said the money was needed by the zoo, particularly in an emergency when the city administration suffered a deficit. She added that a change in regulation may be needed.
"Cooperation is meant to benefit both sides. There are many things to be evaluated," she said.
Two types of JakOne cards are offered to visitors. The first one displays Ragunan's animals and is priced at Rp 30,000, containing Rp 20,000 credit balance. The second one displays animation, and is priced at Rp 60,000 with Rp 50,000 credit balance.
The City Council’s Commission C chairman, Santoso, said the agreement only benefited Bank DKI
