Art and culture

The exhibition by Honza Bohuslav started on Friday 28.11..

Honza took his photos and put them into the gallery in our school called Gauč. Most of the photos were from the life of our class and our school. There were also pictures of Kladno taken at night from the roofs. The best picture was the one with Mr. Profota with his eyes turned to the sealing and Štěpánka telling him something.

The start was very interesting because there was a lot of food from his mothers' shop. For example, some biscuits and dried fruits. Many people (mostly our class and Mr.Uhlíř) came and listened to the poems written and read by FMP. We knew them, but Mr. Uhlíř was very surprised and amused by the creativity of the boys. He was almost rolling on the floor laughing.

I think that all of the people liked this exhibition and hope that it will be there for a long time.

Crime

100 million CZK stolen!

Headmaster of PORG has run away with nearly 100 million in his pocket!

It took more than one year until Mr. “K” completed his preparations for the biggest project of his life. It looks like quite a while, but it was a very hard job. Mr. “K” had to get the money from some naïve, stupid fool, who would believe, that he didn’t want them for himself. He found him in one un-named high manager of ČEZ. This was the first part of the job.

Then Mr. “K” found out that the un-named fool wasn’t so stupid and that he had to come up with something else. He did it simply – he “established” a new company – of-course in the sphere which would seem good for the investor – the school company: PORG - gymnasium a zakladni skola. But the investor wanted something that Mr. “K” didn’t expect. He requested to see bills of things that Mr. “K” purchased to repay it. Mr. “K” reacted fast. He bought some old building for an extremely huge amount of money, but he didn’t say the un-named investor that it was for a loan. Then he tried to wipe off all vestiges. Last week, the secret was broken, while Mr. “K” was already being missed…

Disaster

Students and professor eaten by an elephant

On Monday 11th Decenber, twenty-four students of kvarta went with professor Toegel to pay  a visit to the Zoo. Everything was all right until they visited elephants.

In the elephants' place, a bit hyper-active student Zikmund Bartoníček wanted to know if an elephant could eat a hamburger. He threw a double-hamburger with extra ketchup, which he had bought in the new Burger King next to the Zoo, onto the elephant. It gave Zikmund an angry look, because it had been hit directly on the middle of his head. One second later, it started to run directly in the way, where Zikmund and the others were staying and gazing at it. It broke the fences and swallowed Zikmund as if  he was a fly.

Other students wanted to run away, but they didn’t have any chance. Only Theodora Voráčková, who had hidden in the cobra’s terrarium, had saved herself. She told us: “It was really terrible experience, the elephant was unbelievably fast and caught all my friends in a minute.”

Mr. Sausage, the PR manager of the Zoo, told us: “If he hadn’t thrown the hamburger on it, this would never have happened. It’s just their problem.” But don’t worry, they are all right. We succeeded in calling at one student’s, who had been eaten by the elephant, mobile phone. He told us that all of them were all right, we only had to wait, until the elephant went to the toilet.

Famous people

Niklas Jihde was the first Swedish floorball (innebandy) captain who did not take Swedish national team to victory. But it was not only his fault. It was a mistake of many people in the O2 arena (the final match took place there) who did not support Sweden well. And in this group of people were many famous PORG students. For example Magda Klímová, Marek Švagr or Jakub Švejkovský (I supported Sweden well – with a  Swedish t-shirt J). Nikals Jihde was so sad but famous PORG students wanted to make him happy and they gave him their autograph. At the end Jihde was not so unhappy and famous PORG students feel better because they did a good thing.

Foreign Affairs

Nandeva is not a republic!

 

Parliament has been cancelled. Members of parliament are now retired. The country is not already a democratic republic any more. Nandeva has a new leader –  King Harold the First.

“Yes, this country used to be a kingdom,” said an inhabitant of a capital city called Mukalo,”but in 1936 there was a revolution and a parliament was created and a leader of the revolution became the president.

We asked a new king about his opinion on a situation in his country and we were very surprised. He said that he was forced to be a king.

“I am agonized, I don’t know what I shall do,” he cried,” I was a farmer and one day they came and asked me if I wanted to be a king. They promised money and power but I said no, I don’t. Then somebody hit me on my head and I woke up in a palace.”

So we asked king’s counsellors for explication of this story.

“We know this problem but it was our only possibility,” they said,”We did it according to an old prediction.”

We are curious what the situation in Nandeva will be like in the next months.

Military

 I am glad to see that men don´t have to do military service anymore.

I think that it was just wasting of time for most of them. People who want to work in army can do so. But men who didn‘t want to be there, they did many things which were harmful to the army. For example my father has hated army since he became soldier because he had to be there for two years.

The older soldiers were shouting at him for nothing and he had no freedom. At the ned of this stay he got a paper where it was writen that he was allergic to military. He had problems with it but he didn’t care.  His conclusion (during his service) was that soldiers and people who prefer war to peace are mostly stupid people.

Opinions can change but one thing is clear: men who did not want to be part of  that cannot be good in a real war.

Social Affairs

A really fantastic thing happened last week. A graduate of our school Štěpánka Pabiánová was awarded a Nobel prize! "We can´t believe it! We love her! She is amazing!“ Her fan club said. And what kind of Nobel prize has she got? Nobel peace prize. Mrs. Pabiánová worked in Kongo as a teacher in a basic school. She had no apartment and she didn´t get a salary. But she told us: "I did it for children. Not for money. I really love them.“ Well done, Mrs. Pabiánová. We need more people like you!

The Surprise of the year

 

FC PORG Libeň crowned PPLS (Prague Premier League of Schools) when it beat Open Gate FC in the final of the cup! It was a great match; they played unbelievable football, although they had passed semi-final as quarterfinal with a big fortune. But their yesterday’s play was really an excellent performance.

A striker Mathew Youngfarmer made the breakthrough for PORG in the 5th minute when he headed home after precious corner kick of Libeň’s midfielder Frank Violet. Already after 2 minutes Youngfarmer headed again but just hit the post. In the next half-hour PORG’s players were passing the ball between themselves and their ball possession was growing up. Another chance was seen during the 39th minute when Violet passed the ball to Newman who shot hardly into the right post. Before the end of the first half PORG’s hit the post once again! Jacob Serbian sent his shot crashing against the crossbar.

PORG was the king of the pitch also in the second half but it didn’t convert any other chance. It was mainly because of the great saves of Gate’s goalkeeper Martin Hole. Also, they were in the offside position for several times. Gate’s had just one chance in the whole match, it was when their wing back Peter Snail ran through the field and shot very close to the right post. Libeň’s didn’t convert even several free kicks close to the rival’s goal. The final result is 1:0, so they are this year’s champions. Congratulations!

Agony Aunt

 Anonymous:

Christmas is almost here. Yes, the time when a family has to be together in love and happiness. But nothing like that will probably happen to me, because after I had had a big quarrel wit my boyfriend, he moved to his parents house, but I don´t want to spend  Christmas time alone. Catherine, please, help me..

Catherine

Poor anonymous. I sympathize with you. I believe that the idea of Christmas in loneliness must be terrible. So try to face up to your boyfriend. Try to apologize. I think that he also doesn´t want to spent Christmas alone. If you try, I think everything is gonna be fine because of the atmosphere of  forgiveness and peace.

The donation

The European Union is open-handed. Our school received a big donation last week.

Starting this Monday every student will receive a snack for free every day and when someone gets 10-grade of an exam, he (or she) will be given a financial reward: 1000 CZK.

The food will cause that supplied students will never be starving and the reward will cause that our school will have better results and everyone will study as hard as Š. P. in his (or her) free time instead of doing badly paid part time jobs. I wish everyone happy earning with healthy stomach.

Leisure Interests

The leisure interests during the day at PORG are very interesting. Each class has its own interests. Students especially boys from prima and sekunda play ping pong during the break. Sometimes Mr. Tatíček joins them. A few boys from tercie play some sort of football or hockey with a bottle cap or with a small ball. The only kind of leisure interest for oldest students is smoking under the tree nearby. Lots of students spend their breaks on computers. They search for information, read news or play games. But I am afraid there are not more alternatives. We can´t play any ball games, because it is forbidden. We can only go to a gym and climb or develop our muscles.

„Black hat[1]“ at PORG

Last week, one of the students of PORG was given a suspended expulsion and the access to the computer room has been forbidden to him.

But that´was only an example how a lamer[2] with powerful software can hack into a badly protected system.

He just changed the priority of bootable devices in BIOS (because the BIOS was´t blocked by password), than rebooted from the CD with OPHCrack, the program, which finds the database of encrypted passwords and uses all of the possible combinations to find the password[3].

So he found the password of the administrator and he installed a software for downloading Bit Torrents (that´s exactly the reason, why I think he´s a lamer. If I were a black hat, I would create a new hidden user account with administrator´s rights).

In any case, what happened is the proof, how badly computers at PORG are protected

and how necessary it is to do something with that.

[1]    "black hat n. colloq. (orig. U.S.) (a) a villain or criminal, esp. one in a film or other work of fiction; a ‘bad guy’; (b) Computing slang a person who engages in illegal or malicious hacking, creates or distributes computer viruses, etc."

                (from Oxford English Dictionary, Oxford University Press. 2008. http://dictionary.oed.com.)

 

2    Lamer is a jargon or slang name originally applied in cracker and phreaker culture to someone who didn't really understand what he or she was doing. Today it is also loosely applied by IRC, BBS, and on line gaming users to anyone perceived to be contemptible. In general, the term has come to describe someone who is intentionally ignorant of how things work.

      The term is derived from lame. A lamer is widely understood to be the antithesis of a hacker. While a hacker strives to understand the mechanisms behind what he or she uses, even when such extended knowledge would have no practical value, a lamer only cares to learn the bare minimum necessary to operate the device in the way originally intended. Thus, a lamer is usually indistinguishable from someone who is too lame to understand why something works even if they wanted to. A lamer's attitude is summed up by the phrase, "I don't care how it works, just that it does".

                (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamer, 13.12.08)

 

3              For hackers:  it uses the rainbow tables in fact, but the idea of brute force attack is much more simple to explain
