    PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia (AP): Indonesia's president called for Indonesians to be better protected from abusive employers in Malaysia on Friday, as the two countries signed a pact to boost bilateral trade.
    Three high-profile abuse cases last year - including the murder of an maid in her employer's house - highlighted the ill-treatment of Indonesian workers and strained relations between the neighboring countries.
    Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who arrived Thursday for a three-day visit, said he and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi "openly discussed" the workers' cases.
    "We want to ensure they (Indonesians in Malaysia) are protected and that they are given their rights," Yudhoyono said at a joint news conference with Abdullah in the administrative capital, Putrajaya. "I have also told (the workers) to obey Malaysian laws when they are here."
    Almost 60 percent of the more than 2 million foreign workers in Malaysia are from Indonesia, including more than 270,000 maids.
    Malaysian courts were to rule on 17 cases brought by Indonesians against their allegedly abusive employers, Yudhoyono said. "Justice must be upheld anywhere," he said.
    Although the protection and treatment of Indonesian workers in Malaysia has improved, both countries hope this situation will get better in the coming years "so that the presence of Indonesian workers will benefit both Malaysia and Indonesia," Yudhoyono said without elaborating.
    Abdullah and Yudhoyono also witnessed the signing of a pact to set up a joint trade and investment committee to boost trade, and announced that the two countries would establish a panel to resolve cultural disputes such as one over claims that Malaysia used traditional Indonesian songs and dances in its tourism campaign.

    This text is for questions 36 to 40

    In my opinion teachers should not smoke at school. There are several reasons why I strongly disagree if teachers do smoking at school.
    Firstly, ‘no smoking’ regulation applied for students will not be effective at all.. People say that teachers are as models. Therefore, they should give good examples for their students, especially in behavior. Moreover, Indonesian people belong to a society who have paternalistic behavior pattern. Indonesian youngsters always imitate what older people do. So it useless prohibiting students from smoking at school while their teachers satisfactorily inhale their favorite cigarette smoke.
    Secondly, smoking makes classrooms and school environment dirty. Most of teachers who smoke carelessly throw away the cigarette ashes and ends everywhere. They scatter on the table, on the floor, in the glasses, on pots, and at the school yard. This makes the school environment messy and uncomfortable place to study.
    Thirdly, passive smokers become the victims of active smokers. Smoke coming out from cigarettes can dangerously affect the people around. Teachers should bear in mind that their students inhale poisonous smoke while they enjoy the taste of their cigarettes. As a matter of fact, people who do not smoke become victims of smokers at school.
    Lastly, smoking makes nasty smell. For smokers cigarettes they love have nice smell. In fact cigarettes ends make bad smell. Fellow teachers always complain the smell of cigarette ends left by their colleagues who smoke. In classroom students have to fan cigarette smoke to get rid of the annoying smell.
    Considering the moral, healthy, and environmental reasons, I believe that teachers must not always smoke at school.


  30. What is the writer’s intention in writing the text?


    1. To persuade the readers that teachers must not smoke

    2. To describe the danger of smoking

    3. To inform the danger of smoking

    4. To critique teachers who smoke

    5. To tell who have smoked.



  31. How does the writer give the main argument that smoking teachers make school regulation ineffective?


    1. Indonesian people belong to a society who have paternalistic behavior pattern.

    2. Indonesian youngsters always imitate what older people do.

    3. Students will smoke if their teachers smoke.

    4. Students wild do whatever they want to do.

    5. People say that teachers are as models.



  32. What part of the text is used by the writer to comprehensively strengthen his opinion?


    1. Considering the moral, healthy, and environmental reasons, I believe that teachers must not always smoke at school.

    2. In fact cigarettes ends make bad smell.

    3. Fellow teachers always complain the smell of cigarette ends left by their colleagues who smoke.

    Text 7
    This text is for questions 46 to 50

    Although speech is the most advanced form of communication, there are many ways of communicating without using speech. Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every known culture. The basic function of a signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meaning in and of themselves. A stop sign or a barber pole conveys meaning quickly and conveniently. Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs because of their intricate relationship with the receiver’s cultural perception. In some cultures, applauding in a theater provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural messages.

    Although signals, signs, symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have a major disadvantage. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly adjacent to the receiver. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long distances and extended periods are based upon speech. Radio , television, and the telephone are only a few.


  40. What does the text mainly discuss?


    1. Signs and Signals

    2. Communication

    3. Speech Act

    4. Gestures

    5. Speech



  41. ‘The basic function of a signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit.’ (paragraph 1).

    What does the underlined word mean?


    1. intrude

    2. improve

    3. vary

    4. prohibit

    5. inhabit



  42. ‘The basic function of a signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit’. (paragraph 1).
    The word ‘it’ refers to …


    1. environment

    2. function

    3. signal

    4. dot

    5. dash



  43. ‘Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meaning in and of themselves.’ (paragraph 1)
    The word ‘adaptable’ means …


    1. able

    2. easy

    Although speech is the most advanced form of communication, there are many ways of communicating without using speech. Signals, signs, symbols, and gestures may be found in every known culture. The basic function of a signal is to impinge upon the environment in such a way that it attracts attention, as, for example, the dots and dashes of a telegraph circuit. Coded to refer to speech, the potential for communication is very great. Less adaptable to the codification of words, signs also contain meaning in and of themselves. A stop sign or a barber pole conveys meaning quickly and conveniently. Symbols are more difficult to describe than either signals or signs because of their intricate relationship with the receiver’s cultural perception. In some cultures, applauding in a theater provides performers with an auditory symbol of approval. Gestures such as waving and handshaking also communicate certain cultural messages.
    Although signals, signs, symbols, and gestures are very useful, they do have a major disadvantage. They usually do not allow ideas to be shared without the sender being directly adjacent to the receiver. As a result, means of communication intended to be used for long distances and extended periods are based upon speech. Radio , television, and the telephone are only a few.

    In my opinion teachers should not smoke at school. There are several reasons why I strongly disagree if teachers do smoking at school.
    Firstly, ‘no smoking’ regulation applied for students will not be effective at all.. People say that teachers are as models. Therefore, they should give good examples for their students, especially in behavior. Moreover, Indonesian people belong to a society who have paternalistic behavior pattern. Indonesian youngsters always imitate what older people do. So it useless prohibiting students from smoking at school while their teachers satisfactorily inhale their favorite cigarette smoke.
    Secondly, smoking makes classrooms and school environment dirty. Most of teachers who smoke carelessly throw away the cigarette ashes and ends everywhere. They scatter on the table, on the floor, in the glasses, on pots, and at the school yard. This makes the school environment messy and uncomfortable place to study.
    Thirdly, passive smokers become the victims of active smokers. Smoke coming out from cigarettes can dangerously affect the people around. Teachers should bear in mind that their students inhale poisonous smoke while they enjoy the taste of their cigarettes. As a matter of fact, people who do not smoke become victims of smokers at school.
    Lastly, smoking makes nasty smell. For smokers cigarettes they love have nice smell. In fact cigarettes ends make bad smell. Fellow teachers always complain the smell of cigarette ends left by their colleagues who smoke. In classroom students have to fan cigarette smoke to get rid of the annoying smell.
    Considering the moral, healthy, and environmental reasons, I believe that teachers must not always smoke at school.

  39. What is the writer’s intention in writing the text?

  40. a. To persuade the readers that teachers must not smoke

  41. How does the writer give the main argument that smoking teachers make school regulation ineffective?

    b. Indonesian youngsters always imitate what older people do.
    c. Students will smoke if their teachers smoke.
    d. Students wild do whatever they want to do.
    e. People say that teachers are as models

  43. What part of the text is used by the writer to comprehensively strengthen his opinion?

    PUTRAJAYA, Malaysia (AP): Indonesia's president called for Indonesians to be better protected from abusive employers in Malaysia on Friday, as the two countries signed a pact to boost bilateral trade.
    Three high-profile abuse cases last year - including the murder of an maid in her employer's house - highlighted the ill-treatment of Indonesian workers and strained relations between the neighboring countries.
    Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who arrived Thursday for a three-day visit, said he and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi "openly discussed" the workers' cases.
    "We want to ensure they (Indonesians in Malaysia) are protected and that they are given their rights," Yudhoyono said at a joint news conference with Abdullah in the administrative capital, Putrajaya. "I have also told (the workers) to obey Malaysian laws when they are here."
    Almost 60 percent of the more than 2 million foreign workers in Malaysia are from Indonesia, including more than 270,000 maids.
    Malaysian courts were to rule on 17 cases brought by Indonesians against their allegedly abusive employers, Yudhoyono said. "Justice must be upheld anywhere," he said.
    Although the protection and treatment of Indonesian workers in Malaysia has improved, both countries hope this situation will get better in the coming years "so that the presence of Indonesian workers will benefit both Malaysia and Indonesia," Yudhoyono said without elaborating.
    Abdullah and Yudhoyono also witnessed the signing of a pact to set up a joint trade and investment committee to boost trade, and announced that the two countries would establish a panel to resolve cultural disputes such as one over claims that Malaysia used traditional Indonesian songs and dances in its tourism campaign.

      POLLUTION
      It was mentioned earlier that with the increase in out population, clean water has become a problem. Our rivers have been polluted by all sorts of waste. There is rubbish from our homes, dangerous pesticides from our farms, and deadly chemicals from our factories.
      In the days when the pollution was smaller, people’s waste could be useful. I could be turned slowly into nitrates and phosphates by the natural action of bacteria and air, and these two substances, are needed by plants and fish. But as the pollution increased, waste becomes so much and so overwhelming that natural process could not longer keep the water clean. Many fish have been killed by water pollution.
      There are many kinds of pollution. They can be grouped into several major classifications, of which we mentioned here; water pollution and radiator pollution.
      Air pollution is caused by car engines and by big factories with large chimneys through which dirty air escapes.
      Land pollution can be caused by waste or rubbish such as paper, bottles, plastic, aluminium, scraps, junk, etc. Because of our carelessness and laziness our surroundings are very dirty they are filled with household as well as factory waste. Some waste can be broken down by natural organisms such as bacteria. Rubbish like this called organic waste. On the other hand, rubbish which cannot be broken down by natural organisms is called inorganic waste. This is more difficult to dispose of and it makes the surroundings very unpleasant to look at.
      Noise pollution can be caused by several things, loud music through loudspeakers, the noise of motorized vehicles such as trucks, buses, motorcycles, and also aircraft. Loud noise is annoying and cause nervous strain.
      Radiation pollution can kill many people in one moment. It is caused by uranium and other radioactive materials. The testing of atomic weapons is featured by people in general because atomic weapons are radioactive. These are a few examples of the different kinds of pollution in our lives.

      Many stories, legends and myths have been associated with the kris. In the olden days the kris was an important weapon. Now it is (22) rarely worn, except at formal ceremonies (23) requiring the wearing of traditional costume.
      No one knows exactly where the originated kris from. Many people say that it came from India because the kris is (24) wavy which is a well-known characteristic of ancient
      Indian weapons. Others say it originated in Malaysia. The primitive Malay fisherman found a natural (25) weapon in the sting-ray fish. The sting-ray’s bone is barbed on both sides.
      Later when the early Malays were introduced to metal, they made weapons which (26) conformed to their earlier natural weapons. This could have resulted in the making of the kris.
      In the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries the kris was designed (27) mainly for fighting. Under the skillful hands of the Javanese state iron smiths, the kris became the national weapon of Majapahit, the Javanese state that (28) conquered most of the Malay world in the thirteenth century.

    BatikTulis


    Of Reference : Giriloyo merupakan suatu kawasan pedusunan yang terletak di desa Wukirsari, Kecamatan Imogiri, Kabupaten Bantul, daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta. Keberadaan kawasan ini dikelilingi oleh pegunungan yaitu pegunungan Giri dan pegunungan Merak. Awalnya, kawasan ini merupakan suatu pedusunan dengan nama dusun Giriloyo. Namun seiring dengan majunya roda pemerintahan (dalam hal ini bidang administrasi pemerintah). Pemerintah desa wukirsari mengambil kebijaksanaan untuk membagi (pemekaran) dusun Giriloyo menjadi tiga dusun yaitu dusun Giriloyo, dusun Cengkehan, dan dusun Karangkulon, dengan pertimbangan efektifitas dan efisiensi karena luasnya kawasan dan tingginya jumlah penduduk yang menghuni kawasan ini.
    Walaupun Giriloyo secara birokrasi terbagi menjadi tiga pedusunan, namun masyarakat secara umum sampai saat ini menganggap dirinya satu, yaitu “Giriloyo”, sehingga dalam bahasan ini, Giriloyo dipandang secara umum yaitu dusun Cengkehan, dusun Karangkulon dan Giriloyo sendiri yang memiliki kesamaan kultur dan latar belakang sejarah.

    Sekilas Sejarah Per-Batik Tulisan di Giriloyo
    Giriloyo yang terletak di kaki pegunungan Giri dan Merak yang mana di masing masing pegunungan ini terdapat makam suci Kraton Ngayogyokarto Hadiningrat dan Surakarta, serta makam Panembahan Juminah dan Sunan Cirebon [Syeh Abdul Karim]

    Makam suci Giriloyo
    Makam ini terletak di pegunungan Giri, tepatnya di dusun Cengkehan sebelah utara. Disini terdapat makam Sunan Cirebon, makam ibunda Sultan Agung dan kerabat Kraton lainnya.
    Berlatar belakang dari keberadaan dua makam suci tersebut dimungkinkan bahwa batik Giriloyo diawali/ di bawa oleh kerabat keraton secara langsung. mengingat seni batik tulis merupakan seni kriya yang muncul dari dalam keraton. yang pada akhirnya secara kultural peradaban ini mempengaruhi mata pencaharian masyarakat Giriloyo sampai saat ini, yaitu sebagai pengrajin batik
    Perbatik tulisan di Giriloyo pernah mengalami booming pada dekade tahun 90-an, hal ini ditandai dengan tingginya nilai order (batik dari owner domistic maupun mancanegara) serta pesatnya koperasi koperasi batik.
    Seiring dengan terjadinya krisis moneter di Indonesia, nampaknya berpengaruh besar pada sektor ekonomi, dalam hal ini per-batik-tulisan pun tak ketinggalan, masyarakat kesulitan untuk memasarkan hasil kerajinan dan koperasi koperasi kesulitan untuk menampung hasil kerajinan, sementara outputnya sangat sulit.
    Berbagai terobosan telah ditempuh, berbagai upaya telah dilakukan namun hasilnya kurang memuaskan. Akhirnya, pengrajin batik di Giriloyo hanya sebagai buruh, di mana kegiatan membatik sebatas proses pembuatan batik (pemolaan dan isian) sedangkan pewarnaan dilakukan oleh juragan. dari ini semua, perbaikan ekonomi batik tulis tidak dapat ditempuh secara maksimal, mengingat semua kebijaksanaan ditentukan oleh juragan, bukan oleh pengrajin.
    Hari Sabtu tanggal 27 Mei 2006 silam Yogyakarta, terlebih wilayah Bantul yang termasuk di dalamnya “GIRILOYO” dilanda musibah Gempa bumi, yang begitu dahsyat. Yang mengakibatkan lumpuhnya kegiatan ekonomi di masyarakat. Para pengrajin batik kehilagan peralatan membatik, yang secara otomatis kegiatan membatik berhenti total. Mereka tak tahu lagi apa yang harus diperbuat dan menyikapi kondisi yang demikian ironisnya.
    Melihat kondisi yang demikian, akhirnya sekelompok anak muda mencoba mencarikan solusi atas penderitaan yang menimpa nenek, emak, biung serta mbakyu-mbakyu mereka. Maka dibentuklah kelompok Batik Tulis “Giriloyo” dengan harapan bangkitnya kembali roda perekonomian dari sector batik tulis di dusun Giriloyo.

    "Batik merupakan karya adiluhung. warisan sang kreator masa lalu (nenek moyang). proses pembuatannya memerlukan olah pikir serta imajinasi tinggi sehingga menghasilkan karya yg melegenda. baik dari nilai estatika serta ragam hias maupun motifnya"

    Outbond
    Outbond ini, diperuntukkan bagi seluruh siswa-siswi sekolah dasar hingga SMA, kami juga menyiapkan outbond bagi mahasiswa dan umum. Kegiatan ini diselenggarakan dengan tujuan untuk melestarikan dan mengenalkan kebudayaan yang adi luhung(batik). Dari sini di harapkan peserta dapat lebih mencintai dan melestarikan kebudayaan.

    Pada Outbond ini, akan dapat lebih mengetahui tentang sejarah batik dan perkembangannya, motif dan filsafat. Dalam outbond ini diajarkan pula tentang proses pewarnaan dan pelorotan (proses mengilangkan malam/lilin sebagai perintang warna). Yang lebih menarik dalam outbond ini adalah seluruh peserta mendapatkan kesempatan untuk praktik langsung membatik di workshop yang mengasyikkan, tentunya dengan menggunakan alat yang telah disediakan. Bukan itu saja, bagi peserta yang menginginkan menikmati keindahan alam di sekitar workshop batik "Giriloyo" juga akan dipandu oleh Guide lokal untuk berkeliling dusun, sebab di sini ada berbagai potensi alam dan budaya yang menarik untuk di kunjungi.
