The term "novel" is now applied to a great variety of writings that have in common only the attribute of being extended works of fiction written in prose. As an extended narrative, the novel is distinguished from the short story and from the work of middle length called the novelette; its magnitude permits a greater variety of characters, greater complication of plot (or plots), ampler development of milieu, and more sustained exploration of character and motives than do the shorter, more concentrated modes (Abrams, 1999:190)
called a "literature of ideas". It usually eschews the supernatural, and unlike the related genre of fantasy, historically science fiction stories were intended to have at least a faint grounding in science-based fact or theory at the time the story was created, but this connection has become tenuous or non-existent in much of science fiction.

This article examines how societal concerns about the perceived undesirable aspects of social media such as “addiction” and cyber safety are represented in teenlit, a genre of popular fiction aimed primarily at adolescent girls. This paper is concerned with addressing the following questions. What aspects of adolescent social media interaction do writers represent in fictionand how do they represent them? What kinds of rhetorical strategies do they adopt to do so? To address these questions, I examine two teenlit novels devoted to the topic of social media. The first novel, Online addicted (Tjiunata 2011), is a relatively unknown novel, though published by a well-known publishing house, Gramedia. The second, Jurnal Jo online (Terate 2010), is published by the same publisher but written by a more established writer. This novel is a sequel to Jurnal Jo, published two years earlier. Tjiunata’s and Terate’s novels are of particular interest because they have a similar theme and contain a similar moral message, namely, that adolescents must always treat social media with caution as careless engagement can potentially bring undesirable outcomes. Comparing different novels with a similar theme and moral message is useful for showing how adolescent behaviourist typified. It is also useful for showing how the same theme and message are conveyed in stylistically different ways.
IX. It is no secret that organised crime in America takes in over $40 billion a year. This is quite a profitable sum, especially when one considers that the Mafia spends very little for office supplies. Reliable sources indicate that the Cosa Nostra laid out no more than six thousand last year for personalised stationery, and even less for staples. Furthermore, they have one secretary who does all the typing, and only three small rooms for headquarters, which they share with the Fred Persky Dance Studio. - Woody Allen
The tsunami of December 2004 devastated Thailand’s entire Andaman coast. A total of 392 villages and some 54,500 people were affected by the tsunami. The disaster severly impacted the local economy, in addition to homes, public buildings, and coastal infrastructure. The USAID Regional Development Mission/Asia responded with a demonstration program that helps coastal communities of Southern Thailand rehabilitate livelihoods, become more resilient to future natural disasters, and adopt livelihood practices that use natural resources more sustainably. Instead of just building back the way it was, this program strives to build it back better.
