Before the start of the 2008-09 season, first-year Sharks coach Todd McLellan, a former assistant coach for the Detroit Red Wings, opted to put Setoguchi on the team's first line alongside two standout veterans — Joe Thornton, a center, and left wing Patrick Marleau, the captain.
The move paid off.
The Sharks went 9-0-1 over their first 10 home games at HP Pavilion, which is affectionately referred to as the Shark Tank. They went 32-5-4 at home this season. And they wrap up the regular season with a road game against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.
San Jose (53-16-11) has earned 117 points and will enter the playoffs as one of the favorites to capture Lord Stanley's Cup.
Detroit, the reigning champion, is a legitimate contender again, possibly the team the Sharks will meet in the Western Conference finals if both teams advance to the penultimate round of the playoffs.
According to Setoguchi, the Sharks ought to keep the same approach they've had since Day One.
Key contributor: San Jose right wing Devin Setoguchi has 30 goals and 33 assists in his first full NHL season. The Sharks lead the league in points (117). SAN JOSE SHARKS
"I think we've got to keep going and doing the little things right," he told The Japan Times by telephone from San Jose, Calif., before a recent morning practice.
"We need to continue to work as hard as we can in every game. If we work hard, our skills will take over."
Exhibit A: The Sharks are 6-3-1 over their past 10 games.
Setoguchi, who turned 22 on New Year's Day, is No. 3 on the team in points, with 30 goals and 33 assists in 80 games. He has a respectable plus-17 rating, 10 power-play goals and three shorthanded tallies.
Thornton leads the team with 85 points (25 goals, 60 assists), while Marleau has 37 goals and 33 assists.
Overall, the Taber, Alberta, product is pleased with his productivity this season.
"When I am playing my best," he said. "I am using my speed as much as I possibly can to get in and out of spots to get to loose pucks. I think I've got a good shot as well. I key on it as much as I can during a game."
McLellan described Setoguchi's shooting skills as extraordinary.
"He's quick," McLellan told NHL.com. "Where he's good is he's tenacious. And he releases the puck. He's prepared to shoot it all the time, which when you put a young player on a line with two dominant bodies like Joe and Patty, a lot of times they're dishing it off and not prepared to take the puck and go with it. . . . They want him to shoot. So it works well for him and he's learned how to use that."
That's been evident all season. In the season's first 40 games, Setoguchi had 19 goals and 21 assists. Over the past 10 games, he has four goals and three assists — solid numbers — and a good sign with the playoffs just around the corner.
Setoguchi has also learned the value of paying attention to details during pregame meetings.
"We always do a goalie report before every game," was the way Setoguchi described a key element of those meetings.
He added: "So we kind of know what to expect before every game. In a game, it happens so quickly, so you have to read the goalie and get the shot off as quick as possible."
I asked Setoguchi to describe the thought process behind taking a shot, and he blurted out these words: "It's a spur-of-the moment (thing) during the game. You've got to make it count."
So who's the toughest goalie you've ever played against?

About 170 children, accompanied by their parents and guardians, attended the entrance ceremony at Makuhari International School. The new facility, which operates kindergarten and elementary school programs, is situated in Mihama Ward, Chiba.
Principal Paul Rogers of Britain said at the ceremony he was proud to be able to welcome the students and that he was aiming to make MIS the best international school in the world.
The school is certified as an educational institution operating under the supervision of the Education, Culture, Sports and Technology Ministry.
Schools that hold classes mainly in English or other foreign languages usually cannot be certified as Japanese education facilities in light of the rigorous curriculum guidelines set by the education ministry.
But MIS has taken advantage of a special deregulation program that allows more flexible application of the guidelines.
Since MIS operates under the Japanese education system, students there will have no trouble switching to regular Japanese schools or moving on to Japanese elementary or junior high schools.
All classes, except Japanese-language courses, are conducted in English to cater to children of foreign nationals working in Japan and Japanese children who have returned from abroad.
The school will accept students aged from 3 to 9, or fourth-graders, in its first year. It plans to add fifth-graders in its second year and sixth-graders from 2011.
Teachers have been recruited from five countries, including Canada and New Zealand.

Last year after attending the New York International Auto Show, we looked to the experts and asked if the show was finally going green. The answers were mixed, but one thing seemed clear: Though the show had plenty of hybrid and electric concepts, the big and exciting launches were muscle cars like the Dodge Challenger that didn't take the fuel efficiency into account.
This year, it was a completely different scene, and not just because it was unclear which of the brands in attendance will actually survive the economic downturn and coming "Carpocalypse." One encouraging trend was that although gas prices are far lower than they were last summer, mpg figures have replaced mph ones as the first thing we learned about cars at the show.
It used to be you could ask a representative about a particular car or truck's mileage, and his answer would be vague, or a straight out "I don't know." It just wasn't on anybody's mind. This year, there were no "green" Hummers to insult our intelligence. Instead, Mitsubishi confirmed that its electric car, the iMiev is coming to the U.S., hopefully sometime before 2012. Scion unveiled a "micro-subcompact," the iQ. While most concepts take many years to see the light of day (or are never produced), the Times points out that the Scion iQ is a different kind of concept, one that started with a stock car, the Toyota iQ, instead of a whimsical idea.
Mercedes debuted a powerful but hybrid SUV, the ML 450. Even the company's high horsepower E63 AMG (starting at $85,000 +) uses 12% less gas than its predecessor. It's still a woefully inefficient car, but that sort of note in a press release struck us as important: Mercedes doesn't make sports car/sedan hybrids for Toyota Prius customers, but what we're seeing is incremental improvements in fuel economy across the board, even where cars haven't gone hybrid or electric. The GMC Terrain SUV was another example of this trend--it's a new, non-hybrid SUVs that get 30 mpg on the highway.
Fully electric cars like the iMiev, the Chevy Volt and others won't hit dealerships until 2010 at the very, very earliest. But our infrastructure may not be quite ready to charge massive numbers of batteries using clean energy so that we don't have to run our cars on coal--that's the kind of work that needs to be done in tandem with the development of affordable electric cars. We're getting there, but it's heartening to see, in the meantime, that the economic crisis has lead consumers, and therefore manufacturers to care about fuel efficiency. Here's hoping that at next year's show car companies (and the entire economy) will seem healthier, but that the focus on greener cars will remain.

City mosques reject Islamic formalization
Irawaty Wardany , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Fri, 01/30/2009 7:54 AM | Headlines
Most managers of mosques in Jakarta embrace a moderate brand of Islam and support the unitary state of Indonesia, a survey released Thursday reveals.
Only a few wish for Indonesia to become an Islamic state, it added.
The survey was conducted by the Center for the Study of Religion and Culture (CSRC) at Jakarta's Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University between November 2008 and January 2009. It surveyed 250 takmir masjid (mosque managers) in Jakarta.
“Some 88.8 percent of the respondents approve of Pancasila [state ideology] and [view] the 1945 Constitution as the best model for Indonesia. As many as 78.4 percent agree that democracy is the best system of governance for Indonesia,” CSRC research coordinator Ridwan Al Makassary told a press conference.
“However, we found a kind of split personality among the mosque managers. As citizens they support Pancasila as the state ideology for the country, but as Muslims they support the establishment of an Islamic country,” another CSRC senior researcher Sukron Kamil said at the same forum.
The survey reveals that 31 percent of the respondents agree that Indonesians should enforce sharia law, 56 percent reject the notion, and 13 percent did not answer.
Some 74 percent said they would not fight a government that refuses to implement Islamic sharia law and 14 percent said they would.
Some 74 percent did not agree that the main purpose of jihad was to wage war, and 15 percent said it was.
“On the question of whether violence is allowed to uphold amar ma’ruf nahi munkar [guiding people to the right path], 89 percent of the respondents reject it, 9 percent agree and the remaining 2 percent are undecided,” Ridwan said.
The study shows 75 percent reject that suicide bombing can be considered jihad, and 9 percent said it was acceptable, the study said.
However, when asked whether the state should have the authority to regulate Muslims’ dress code, a surprising 60 percent of the respondents said they agreed and 33 percent opposed the idea.
Also, 41 percent said they agreed the state should have the authority to regulate religious activities, 50 percent did not agree and 9 percent did not answer.
"Generally, the majority of mosques in Jakarta embrace moderate Islamic ideas and thoughts.
Nevertheless, among the total is a small number with a tendency toward increasing radical Islamic ideas," Ridwan said.
Masdar Farid Mas'udi of Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), the country's largest Muslim organization, said mosques were often used by clerics to preach "provocative sermons", particularly aimed against people of other beliefs.
"Mosque preachers tend to create enemies and look for friends, while failing to bridge differences among other groups," he told a discussion at the launch of another study, which would survey mosques in other regions, and in particular those affiliated with NU, which is widely known as a moderate Islamic organization.

Pergolakan emosi yang terjadi pada remaja tidak terlepas dari bermacam pengaruh, seperti lingkungan tempat tinggal, keluarga, sekolah dan teman-teman sebaya serta aktivitas-aktivitas yang dilakukannya dalam kehidupan sehari-hari. Masa remaja yang identik dengan lingkungan sosial tempat berinteraksi, membuat mereka dituntut untuk dapat menyesuaikan diri secara efektif. Bila aktivitas-aktivitas yang dijalani di sekolah (pada umumnya masa remaja lebih banyak menghabiskan waktunya di sekolah) tidak memadai untuk memenuhi tuntutan gejolak energinya, maka remaja seringkali meluapkan kelebihan energinya ke arah yang tidak positif, misalnya tawuran. Hal ini menunjukkan betapa besar gejolak emosi yang ada dalam diri remaja bila berinteraksi dalam lingkungannya.
Mengingat bahwa masa remaja merupakan masa yang paling banyak dipengaruhi oleh lingkungan dan teman-teman sebaya dan dalam rangka menghindari hal-hal negatif yang dapat merugikan dirinya sendiri dan orang lain, remaja hendaknya memahami dan memiliki apa yang disebut kecerdasan emosional. Kecerdasan emosional ini terlihat dalam hal-hal seperti bagaimana remaja mampu untuk memberi kesan yang baik tentang dirinya, mampu mengungkapkan dengan baik emosinya sendiri, berusaha menyetarakan diri dengan lingkungan, dapat mengendalikan perasaan dan mampu mengungkapkan reaksi emosi sesuai dengan waktu dan kondisi yang ada sehingga interaksi dengan orang lain dapat terjalin dengan lancar dan efektif.
Apa Sih Kecerdasan Emosional
