本書討論數三

Today was the last day of book discussion and we discussed the ending of the book. The book discussion wasn’t that fun in general, and it never had been.  A good thing was that I learned a lot about what others think about the book.  After that I got to know the people more since we had been together for about 2 and a half weeks, even though it had been through 30 minute hour time sessions, we got a lot done.  When we did finish the meet , we just wrote a discussion or a reply to the book and reviewed what we had learned from it.

Overall I guess it was a pretty good activity for us to participate in. Once we were done we headed back to class.  It was an end to another event in Mrs. Cato’s class. It was a great time altogether.  W had fun, and we learned a few new things.

It was suprising that by the time I finished reading and discussing the book, how much I knew about this character that never really existed. Amazing what a book can do to your brain.

Today after we met a week later, everyone had read a little bit more.  I had already answered a lot of the questions before the actual in depth discussion though.  Everyone had read about 50 pages, and then we discussed what we had read so far.  Basically they were near the beginning  part where the main characters(Ellie and Mika) were being introduced  and the storyline had begun. We then started discussing the book

We discussed and  redid the foreshadowing, and then, we discovered we only had one meeting left.  We picked up the pace then I told everyone to read more of their book so we could finish before the next meet.

Book Discussion #1

PRO

  • Fun
  • Informative
  • Intelligent
  • Sophisticated
  • Learned other peoples opinions on the book.
  • Helped me understand the book deeper by comparing and contrasting with other people

Cons

  • Got a little off topic sometimes.

I had a very good discussion with Jake and Jackson over what the book’s theme was. This argument went on until we switched topics onto the reasons why the main character left the space station in the first place, and the deeper reason why she was trying to escape. This went on for a while, until we got a little of topic and started talking about the purpose of the monkey in the book.

After reading this article, I felt that the girl who got sick was not compensated enough for what had happned to her. I beleive that it is a resturants obligation to pay for any damages caused by THEIR OWN FOOD. Because even if it was an employee’s fault, it is a resturant’s responsibility to pay for any damages cause by their food, even if it was because of the employee’s neglagence.

First of all, how could this kind of thing even happned. I know there has been dispute over what exactly caused it, but it doesnt matter! It is the resturants responsiblity take responsibility for the damages done. For example: what if you were a just a normal guy walking down the street and some nice stranger with a nice dog is walking by. The other man offers for you to pet his dog. So then you go up to pet it. Then suddenly, out of no where, the dog turns full rogue and bites your arm. But it turns out the dog had a rare form of zombie disease, making everyone he bit a zombie.  So now you have the zombie disease. Well this dease apperently costs a lot of money to cure. So who pays for the cure? The owner or you? I beleive the owner should, because based on the dog’s freindly looking apperaence and the mans willingness to let you pet his dog. This is litteraly a spot on anology.

One thing that stuck out to me in my book is the perserverence that Elie and his father had. They had to adapt to thier

In the book, The Biography of Elie Wiesel, they truly showed how the war affected Jews and. The main character and his father tried to stick together throughout the war, but at the end of they day only Elie was still alive.

 

I can make a difference

I can make a difference by recycling and reusing materials. This will help the environment, ånd make the earth a better place for people to live in. I think of the Earth as a sphere of sheltėr for all of mankind. I believe that the better world we live in, the better life we will live. Śo fly into the wings of happinesš. The end

AOW- Cyber Security

I just read this article, http://today.ttu.edu/2011/11/cyber-security-creates-issues-for-college-students/, on cyber security and it has greatly impacted me.

Firstly, I believe that cyber security is important if you want to communicate with someone like a family member in private through facebook or other forms of online communication. The internet was created to link people together and to provide a metaphorical “web” of information and online social gatherings; but many abuse that power by hacking in to another persons personal information. I believe that some information used to communicate with other must be kept private.

Secondly, I don’t think that people who post private stuff on Facebook, and then get mad for people “digging through their personal information”, shouldn’t be complaining because I think it’s their fault for putting it there in the first place. So they should not be complaining.

Lastly, I believe that people need to BE AWARE of their cyber Security. Because they are the only ones to blame if they think that something that they are posting on the web is only going to be shown to their friends.

In conclusion, I think that people’s cyber security should be up to them. Wether they want people to see their private information or not.

Hunger Games Book Review

The book, Hunger Games, takes place many centuries into the future, where North America has been destroyed and becomes Panem. Panem is divided into 12 districts plus the Capital, the head district that rules over them.

 Every year, 1 boy and 1 girl, are chosen from each district to compete in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death. This book tells the story of Katniss, a girl who steps in for her sister at the annual deciding of the tributes.

She and the other tribute, a boy named Peeta Mellark, are then taken to the capital to be trained for the Games. During the games, Katniss and Peeta face many dangers such as dangerous wasps, assassins, and fire. They also must avoid being killed by other tributes who are also trying to survive.

Over all, the book had both an interesting story line, and an intriguing plot. I do wish that it would have gotten to the main story quicker though. I give it a 89.9 out of 100.

This is my book trailer for the Hunger Games. Link below:
