REVIEW: THE HUNGER GAMES MOCKINGJAY PART 1

The third chapter of The Hunger Games movie franchise is without a doubt, one of the most anticipated movies of the year, but the problem is right there on the studio’s decision to split the final chapter into two. From the general perspective, there were already two reasons on why “Mockingjay Part 1” is going to get hurt. First, there is a sense of incomplete story that follows with the sense of anticlimax. And two, we see a tamer side of the characters because politics and propagandas are all over them. Even if the fans do approve this, Hollywood's attempt to milk in more cash due to its success will less likely to make “Mockingjay Part 1” a more competent movie. It becomes very clear by now, much like what we have seen Harry Potter or Twilight, this particular chapter only serves to set up things in the last instalment. So we have a “set-up movie” concept now?

SOMETHING NEW SOON

I just realize that this blog has been left unattended and is without any proper update for so long. Something new is up here soon. Soon, I will shift my attention towards my second field of  passionate - chemical engineering and some random stuffs along the way.

Stay tune!

R.I.P. NEIL ARMSTRONG


Former astronaut and more famously known as the first man ever in the history to step on the soil of the moon, Neil Armstrong will forever be a figure icon that leaves a huge impact on the aerospace exploration. It comes to my attention that Armstrong has passed away at the age of 82. According to the news report, "Armstrong underwent a heart-bypass surgery earlier this month, just two days after his birthday on August 5, to relieve blocked coronary arteries."

In 1969, Armstrong commanded the Apollo 11 mission along side Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, in an expedition to the moon. Armstrong created history by becoming the first human being ever to set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969. A man known for his work ethic, spirit and devotion, remarked one of the most popular quote ever - "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" right after setting his foot on the dusty rock of the earth's very own and only satellite.

Following his retirement, Armstrong has lived silently in Ohio with his wife, Carol Held Knight. Armstrong had three children with his first wife, Janet Shearon. He is survived by his two sons, Eric and Mark. His daughter, Karen, died of pneumonia in 1962.

My deepest condolences go out to his family members and friends.

What Would My 3D World be with LG Optimus 3D?

Imagine this…

What would your 3D world would be with LG Optimus 3D?


Any answer is accepted, really. However, I'm sure that out of the little cliché when we talk about 3D, we always picture the following scenario. Le you are wearing that 3D glass, holding that bucket of caramel-flavored popcorn and with that exciting feeling, walking into the cinema hall to catch that 3D movie. That kind of feeling feels exactly like this....

Digi Android: Tomorrow Network 2

[THIS IS AN UPDATE TO THE VIDEO CONTEST] Few weeks ago, you may have read that the whole house of Green Tea World erupted into the 'thunderous cheers and sarcastic rages of the memes'. Yes, everyone is so keen of having Android device into their hand. Great! Let's start a revolution! Let's get people the real attentions about the Android! Spread the word, spread the jagger moves.

LESSON 2: LET'S CODE MORE WITH TABLING THE OUTPUTS


Recall that from the first post, we have already:
  • Algorithm for any program should consists of three main sections - input, computation and output
  • Basic syntax for mathematical operation
  • Solving the assignment given
For this post, we will discuss on more coding.

LESSON 1: CODING A SIMPLE MATLAB CODE

Greetings and welcome to Bern’s section on the basic computation programming for engineers. In this first article that I have wrote for this special section on my blog, I would like to talk about constructing a simple computer language code using the Matlab for a common mathematical question. If you are my JKKP classmates, I am sure that you have the question for the assignment given by Dr Meor with you. If you are not, here is the question stipulated:

QUESTION: 
The area of a triangle having side lengths a, b and c is:
Area = √(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)) - where; s = (a+b+c)/2


Write a computer code (Matlab) to prompt user for the three sides of a triangle and then compute and print the area using the relationship above. You are expected to submit the algorithm, flowchart and the computer (Matlab) code.

NOTE: I will leave it to you to solve the algorithm and the flowchart.

DiGi Android: Tomorrow Network

Few days weeks ago, you may have read that the whole house of Green Tea World erupted into the 'thunderous cheers and sarcastic rages of the memes'. Yes, everyone is so keen of having Android device into their hand. Great! Let's start a revolution! Let's get people the real attentions about the Android! Spread the word, spread the jagger moves.


For years, we have been a vivid fan of Android so the term Fandroid suits us.You know by now that the DiGi and Nuffnang has throw in a grandiose opportunity to score yourself some great invites to the Fandroid Day workshop that will be happening next week. The workshop will come exclusively with some introduction of DiGi's next big thing termed 'Tomorrow Network' and the first insight-depth-feature on Ice Cream Sandwich OS, the Android version 4.0 to the attendee. Read more here.

Heck yes, Green Tea World will be proud to join it (if am selected of course). Otherwise, here's something special for DiGi and Nuffnang to enjoy.



HAPPY FANDROID DAY and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

MUSIC TALK: BRUNO MARS AND COLDPLAY

It's a rather cool day. Raindrops fall so heavily that I forgot to tell you guys how much I have been missing the day when I use this keyboard to do some scribbling for this blog (as well as the other blog - the movie one). The huge lumps of engineering-degree-seeking assignments have take a lot of toll on my blogging life. It's that Wednesday again, when out of the sudden (not really) that I want to talk about music.




Oh yes, the first thing is about Bruno Mars and Twilight. Well, since Paramore did some 'Decode' for Twilight, while Death Cab for Cutie wanted you to 'Meet Me on the Equinox', Bruno Mars has joined the rank of artistes whom will headlining the soundtrack for Twilight movie. Yes, Breaking Dawn Part 1 is coming out in the United States this week that Bruno Mars decided to contribute one of his original song-writing piece "It Will Rain" into the soundtrack. How appropriate? The weather in Seattle (where Twilight is set is always in high damp and moisture!!). Here's the official video that you can view below. One thing for sure, the Youtubers are hot on topic in regards to the female lead in the video - she is ugly according to them!




Next, a month after the release of Coldplay's 'Mylo Xyloto', I am still contemplating on whether to buy the album or not. Previously, I am so occupied that I do not have time to check it out when it arrived on the CD rack on October 24th but since I am already desperately needing some cochlear-dosage of Coldplay, I really need it now. Exams are just around the corner. So, should I fork out RM41 for the new album or just resorting to 'pirate' it? What do you think?

So that's the Wednesday's dose of music.
