My Favourite Place Movie Theatre

In this week, I would like to share one of my life stories which is about either a successful or failed attempt at going to a movie theatre. Prior to sharing either of them, I would like to define the meaning of the Hagerstrand’s three constraints. As these three constraints Hagerstrand stated in 1970 (cited in Hodge & Janelle 2013), these consist of three logical components which are: capability, coupling, and authority constraints.

  1. Firstly, the capability constraints are imposed by physiological and biological abilities, and tools that an individual can command (Hodge & Janelle 2013). Which means that this refers to whether he/she can get to a location.
  2. Secondly, the coupling constraints can be defined as limitations that when, where, and for how long an individual need to join with other people, and tools (Hodge & Janelle 2013). In other words, this refers to whether he/she can get to a location on time.
  3. Lastly, the authority constraints can be defined as limitations on when activities can or cannot take place, and are imposed by external authorities (Hodge & Janelle 2013). In plain language, this refers to whether he/she is allowed to be at a specific location.

Either of the successful or failure attempt, I would like to share about my successful attempt at going to a cinema. I used to go the nearest movie theatre with my girlfriend. Prior to visiting the cinema, I have a habit that I used to check a movie schedule by using a mobile application, because I do not want to miss the movie or waste my valuable time waiting for the next show time. After checking the schedule, I used to use Uber when visiting the nearest shopping mall where the cinema is located. And of course, Uber is more reliable than public transportation in terms of saving times.

As of today, people do not need to worry about lack of physical and geographical accessibility to visit a movie theatre. With the advancement of information technologies, there are many different ways to see movies such as web-streaming services including YouTube, iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, and other numerous platforms (including IPTV). However, I still prefer a cinema. A movie I saw recently was ‘Train to Busan’. This movie is still available at theatres. This movie is the first Korean zombie apocalypse movie filmed by a Korean director. This was really awesome, and I recommend this movie if you have not seen yet.

Restructuring the composition of the world in the modern history: the supremacy, world-economics and religions

Our history has rapidly passed away, and there were uncountable events which cannot be contradicted. The past history, such as The People’s Revolutions, the Industrial Revolution, Renin and the Raising Communism, the Second World War and the Cold War, has made the world unlikely our leaders had expected.

The Soviet Union had fallen; the Red Bear had fallen, and the raising of Panda.

Nowadays, the People’s Republic of China is emerging as one of G2, the new world order, recently restructured by Washington and Beijing; particularly in which the Government in China has insisted on accepting the Chinese Yuan as a reserve currency into the world markets. Mostly to take its superiority than the United States Dollar in transacting international bonds and oil dealings.

According to its new transformation of new hegemony, this is no time for the existed governments, allied with the U.S., to repeat an ‘everything alright’ alliance with the United States, but read into what the new administration in Washington has in mind in the context of the new world order, particularly in which China is emerging as one of the G2. However, the supreme controlled by U.S. is the way better than what China and Russia are. Imagine what might be happening if China and Russia control the supremacy, be referred territorial disputes and international disputes between China, Russia and third countries. The truly world police and the gangsters who are dully following as what Washington does.

Furthermore, variables of religion crisis are raised as the new threaten of our lives and nations. Firstly began with the Crusades; and after the time, the Soviet-Afghanistan war (U.S. supported mujahedin which lately known as Al-Qaeda), and the 9-11 Terror. And, the crisis in Iraq, caused by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, is now on present progressive.

Personally, I do not blame Islam the religion; however, the problem is the lunatics who are heretically re-writing and following Quran.

“Who successfully accomplished Jihad, they go to the heaven, and meet 72 virgins…”

The religion power is enough to tempt and make people to be crazy and dumb, even an educated person is; so the lunatics demagogy others to accomplish their ‘own’ Jihad, not by themselves; what the cowards they are.

I was able to find several similarities between ‘Mein Kampf’ (written by Adolf Hitler the dictator of the Third Empire) and them.
