Future Career

Today my teacher asked my class to write a blog post about what we want to do when we are out of high school and or college. I am going to college to be a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.) Soon my class will be writing letters to local businesses that do the jobs we want to do later in life. In my letter I will write to Owen's Ark Veterinarian Clinic in Genoa Ohio. Every month or so I help my grandma take her dogs to the vet and get to see what a vet does when they do a check-up on a dog.

Fake News

Today in class we were on Newsela and we read an article on fake news. I had not heard of this fake news yet so it took me by surprise. I was asked by my teacher to write a review on it and connect it to  H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds.

 Connection

War of the Worlds talks about how aliens invade the Earth and take over and feed on people. People from a radio broadcast center decided to scare people by reading War of the Worlds over the radio. people tuned in late and didn't hear that it was them just reading War of the Worlds so people started to panic. In the end they got the word to the people who tuned in late that it was just them reading and everybody went back to their everyday lives. In the Newsela article it was about people obtaining fake news and believing it without knowing it was fake. The people that heard War of the Worlds were in the same situation. 

Reflection
I think that the people spreading the fake news are awful people. I say this because some people who see this fake news don't know its fake so they act on it and it can alter their lives if it plays a big enough part in it.

After The Tempest

The Tempest: Reflection
In The Tempest I liked and disliked some parts of it. I liked the story and the plot because it told a story of how people went from wanting revenge to giving forgiveness.  I disliked the costumes of the actors and actresses and how the background never changed with the scenes. I disliked the background because I could never understand where the people were and it was confusing, the background was always the ship and sometimes it was supposed to be the island or another place other than the ship.

The Tempest: Line Translation
Original:
So they are;
My spirits, as in a dream, all bound up. 
My father's loss, the weakness which I feel,
The wreck of all my friends, nor this man's threats,
To whom I am subdued, are but light to me, 
Might I but through my prison once a day
Behold this maid: all corners o' the Earth
Let liberty make use of space enough 
Have I in such prison.

Translation
So they are; 
my hopes are tied up
My father's loss, I feel weak
The death of my friends, nor this man's threats,
Who am I quiet to, is my happiness
There is one thing a day I cannot do
look at my servant: All around the Earth
let everybody be free; with enough space to live
I have in hard times

The Tempest: Theme
One possible theme for The Tempest is: Always forgive others. I say this because in The Tempest Prospero forgives his brother. This was a big change for Prospero because in the beginning he was trying to get revenge on his brother.

Class Exit Ticket: The Tempest

Today in class we watched more of The Tempest and we watched a scene with humor meant for the lower class people. I chuckled a little bit but I didn't really understand all of the humor in this scene.

Before The Tempest

My reading class is going to be reading and watching The Tempest by William Shakespeare. When we watched the trailer for the movie, I was confused and didn't like it.  I have hopes that the movie will be better than the trailer and that I understand the play when we read it.

Final Copy Argument

No More Vegetarianism

Imagine getting invited out to eat with your friends, but you are a vegetarian and they all agreed to go to a place without a salad bar. You either have to decline the invitation, or go and sit there without food. People should not become vegetarians for many reasons. This argument will list three reasons why people should not become vegetarians.
One reason people shouldn’t become a vegetarian is that vegetarians live without a large source for daily protein. Meat is the main source for of protein. Protein is an important nutrient to have in our everyday lives. Vegetarians have to find another source to get their daily value of protein.
A second reason people shouldn’t be vegetarians is that when an animal gets old they suffer from many problems. People should do the humane option and put these animals out of their misery. If people leave the carcass on the ground and let it rot then it will attract predators and cause danger if people have a family, family pet, or other animals of any kind. People should take these animals to the butcher and harvest the animal.
A third and final reason that no person should be a vegetarian is that if animals get over populated then they will kill off all the plants. If people don’t control the animal populations then people will eventually get rid of all of the crops and, in time, run out of vegetables which are a very important part in a human's everyday diet.
People may say that red meat takes time off of their life, but if people are vegetarians they may live long enough for them to see their friends and family die.
People shouldn’t become vegetarians. This argument has listed three reasons to prove this statement. First, vegetarians live without meat and meat is a main source of protein. Second, animals suffer and humans need to put them down. Third, animals get overpopulated and people need to control their population. People should not become vegetarians.
