Immediately, Jan-di dislikes her wealthy classmates and is disgusted by their obsession with the F4 boys. Irked by her strong-headed nature, Jun-pyo singles out Jan-di to bully, but she refuses to cower and stands up to him, even kicking him in the face. She is the first person to stand up to him and dislike him, which begins to intrigue him. Bored and lonely, he starts to play silly tricks on her and eventually begins to fall for her. Jun-pyo continues to encourage the students, led by a mean group of girls, to bully and torture Jan-di. She gets attacked with eggs and flour by the bullies. F4 member, Ji-hu gives her his handkerchief to help clean her up, showing his compassionate side. He saves her from being attacked by a group of boys after school. As a result of his kind actions, Jan-di starts to develop feelings for Ji-hu but soon discovers that Ji-hu fosters a one-sided love for Min Seo-hyun, a successful celebrity, model and lawyer-in-training and his childhood friend. The bullying continues as Jun-pyo drags Jan-di to a school dance. The mean girls trick Jan-di into thinking the event is a costume party, so she wears a Wonder Woman outfit. They cause her to fall into the food table, covering her in wet food. Ji-hu and Seo-hyun rescue her from the humiliation, and Seo-hyun gives her a makeover. The belle of the ball, she dances with Ji-hu, making Jun-pyo jealous.
During its broadcast, the series influenced South Korean men to take their appearances more seriously to copy the metrosexual or "pretty boy image" (kkotminam, lit. "men as beautiful as flowers") of the F4 characters in the drama. This led to an increase in South Korean males wearing cosmetics, preppy and cruise outfits, and clothing in traditionally more feminine styles like the color pink and floral prints. The drama's local filming locations became tourist attractions, such as the Damyang Dynasty Country Club in South Jeolla Province; Ragung Hanok Hotel in Silla Millennium Park in Gyeongju, North Gyeongsang Province; Hilton Namhae Gold & Spa Resort in South Gyeongsang Province; Grand Hyatt Seoul ice rink; Lotte Hotel World's Emerald Room; Farmer's Table in Heyri; and Yangpyeong English Village. The overseas locations featured such as New Caledonia and Macau also became sought-after holiday destinations.
Gorya is a typical high school girl who works part time at a flower shop with her best friend Kaning to support her family's impoverished situation. And it seems her life is as simple and regular as that, until she passes the entrance exam of a prestigious, crazy expensive high school, turning her into the family's only hope out of poverty. But the elite high school life, to Gorya, is simply artificial and absolutely annoying. And for that, she decides she will be the most unremarkable nobody, an aspiration no one in this whole school strives to ever be.
19. Following a period of irrational confidence in progress and human abilities, some sectors of society are now adopting a more critical approach. We see increasing sensitivity to the environment and the need to protect nature, along with a growing concern, both genuine and distressing, for what is happening to our planet. Let us review, however cursorily, those questions which are troubling us today and which we can no longer sweep under the carpet. Our goal is not to amass information or to satisfy curiosity, but rather to become painfully aware, to dare to turn what is happening to the world into our own personal suffering and thus to discover what each of us can do about it.
53. These situations have caused sister earth, along with all the abandoned of our world, to cry out, pleading that we take another course. Never have we so hurt and mistreated our common home as we have in the last two hundred years. Yet we are called to be instruments of God our Father, so that our planet might be what he desired when he created it and correspond with his plan for peace, beauty and fullness. The problem is that we still lack the culture needed to confront this crisis. We lack leadership capable of striking out on new paths and meeting the needs of the present with concern for all and without prejudice towards coming generations. The establishment of a legal framework which can set clear boundaries and ensure the protection of ecosystems has become indispensable; otherwise, the new power structures based on the techno-economic paradigm may overwhelm not only our politics but also freedom and justice.
83. The ultimate destiny of the universe is in the fullness of God, which has already been attained by the risen Christ, the measure of the maturity of all things. Here we can add yet another argument for rejecting every tyrannical and irresponsible domination of human beings over other creatures. The ultimate purpose of other creatures is not to be found in us. Rather, all creatures are moving forward with us and through us towards a common point of arrival, which is God, in that transcendent fullness where the risen Christ embraces and illumines all things. Human beings, endowed with intelligence and love, and drawn by the fullness of Christ, are called to lead all creatures back to their Creator.

Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim,Whose glorious beauty is a fading flowerWhich is at the head of the verdant valleys,To those who are overcome with wine!Behold, the Lord has a mighty and strong one,Like a tempest of hail and a destroying storm,Like a flood of mighty waters overflowing,Who will bring them down to the earth with His hand.The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim,Will be trampled underfoot;And the glorious beauty is a fading flowerWhich is at the head of the verdant valley,Like the first fruit before the summer,Which an observer sees;He eats it up while it is still in his hand.
I always recommend that you consider the focal lengths you need as the first criteria in selecting a lens.Aside from the ultra wide angle focal lengths, there are not many general purpose focal lengths missing in this super long 28-300mm range.And because of its super long focal length zoom range, the 28-300 L has a super long list of uses, including:landscapes, group pictures, portraits, outdoors sports, zoo animals (and shots of your kids while you are there),wildlife, flowers (.3x maximum magnification is great for a non-dedicated macro lens), sunsets ...Carrying and changing between multiple lenses to get your shot is not necessary with this lens.And less dust on the sensor is a great side benefit to not changing lenses.The 28-300mm focal length range covers most of the most commonly used focal lengths in a single lens.
With a wide open aperture, the Canon EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM Lens shows good center sharpness throughout the entire focal length range.Wide open full frame sensor corners are quite sharpover most of the focal length range but become somewhat soft from 200 to 300mm.1.6x APS-C sensor bodies will see similar corner performance.As usual, stopping the lens down about 1 stop from wide open improves overall sharpness a noticeable amount though 200 to 300mm corners remain the weakest at f/8.There are a lot of focal lengths to discuss here, so review the results in the ISO 12233lens image quality comparison tool if you want to see the details.Overall, you can expect very good sharpness from this lens - excellent for the focal range it covers.
Not unusual for a super-zoom lens is distortion and distortion is indeed one of the 28-300 L's weaknesses.Barrel distortion, at 28mm, is very strong.You can see how the image details of the top-most 28mm ISO 12233 chart sample are enlarged when you compare them to a distortion free lens or focal length(the 200mm f/2L IS USM Lens for example).Some barrel distortion remains at 35mm, but it is greatly reduced.Strong pincushion distortion is present over the rest of the focal length range.You will want to avoid straight lines (the horizon over the ocean, the sides of tall buildings ...) appearing at the edges of a full frame image when using this lens. 2b1af7f3a8
