They are, quite simple, the twins and identical ones, at that who now rule Poland. They are brothers in power. With one Kaczynski as president and another as prime minister, a rising nation could be in for a bumpy ride. Lech Kaczynski swore in his brother Jaroslaw as prime minister stripping away any pretense that anyone else is in charge. Poland before last year's elections was emerging as a key new player within NATO and EU, sending troops to Iraq and leading the European effort to support the Orange Revolution in neighboring Ukraine. Now it's mostly seen as a problem country, and increasingly, the twins are seen as the biggest problem of all. Judging by a new book of interviews with the twins conducted by Michael Karnowski and Piotr Zaremba, reporters for NEWS-WEEK's Polish edition, most of the battles they pick are less about ideas than perceived slights and settling scores. Longtime Solidarity activists during the communist era, the Kaczynski always resented the fact that they didn't get the same kind of recognition as many of their more glamorous colleagues. After the communist regime collapsed, they served newly elected President Lech Walesa-and promptly were at the center of infighting that shattered the old Solidarity camp. In the book Jaroslaw refers somewhat scornfully to " the myth" of the former Solidarity leader and makes clear his was purely an alliance of convenience.

Title Song : FIX YOU

When you try your best but you don't succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse.

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you're too in love to let it go
But if you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream, down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I..

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

I choose this Fix You song from Coldplay because I like to hear this song. This song shows the meaning about the successful never be achieve without any effort. The successful also never been seen if we never to try. The worth things will be lose if we let it go before trying to faced with it. Besides, this song also give a deep of meaning by saying, lights will guide you, and ignite your bones, and I will try to FIX YOU. When I heard this song, it makes me to sing along together. In the other hand, this song give me a spirit as a source of strength..

Public Speaking and Me!

Public speaking is the process of speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner intended to inform, influence, or entertain the listeners. The purpose of public speaking can range from simply transmitting information, to motivating people to act, to simply telling a story. Good orators should be able to change the emotions of their listeners, not just inform them. Public speaking can also be considered a discourse community. It contains elements of a discourse community that exist in many mediums and forms that serve different purposes for society and business among other areas of communication. Public speaking can be a powerful tool to use for purposes such as motivation, influence, persuasion, informing, translation, or simply entertaining.

Public Speaking an important skill today because it is the heart of every organization. Everything i doing the workplace result from communication. Therefore good reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are essential if task are going to be completed and goals achieved. As i develop my career i will find various reasons why successful communication skills are important to me, for example. To secure an interview. I need good communication skills to make sure my application letter is read and acted upon. To get the job. I need to communicate well during my interview. To do my job well. I need to request information, discuss problem, give instruction, work in teams, interact with colleagues and clients. To advance in my career. Employers want staff who can think for themselves, use initiative and solve problem, staff who are interested in the long-term success of the company. If i to be seen as a valued member of the organization, it is important not just to be able to do my job well, but also to communicate my thoughts on how the processes and products or services can be improve.

My problem when asked to speak in front of other people is i'm ‘Drying up' or not being able to speak. Im forgetting what im talking about and my mind going blank. Having the heckler from Hell. Having someone in the audience who knows more than i do. People also noticing that im nervous. Furthermore, Im feel the impossible to answer ‘question from Hell'. Then,the audience talking over me or walking out and im dying on stage.
