Partial log files copied into the body of a forum post aren't any help. All you have shown us is the after effect of the issue, not any of the things that may have led up to it. Please zip the full log file and use the "Upload attachment" option to post it here.

My crystal ball is currently broken. If you want assistance you are going to have to give me all of the necessary information.
Please don't ask me to do your homework for you, I have more than enough of my own things to do.
