Our Evolving Society

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 00:09:41 +0000

Today's society consists of a variety of behaviors. What makes America, our home country, special is that it gives plenty of room for expanding a student's knowledge, abilities and strengths. In Communist countries, like China, it is believed that uniform was the best way of handling things. For example, everyone moved at the same pace in school. There were no honors, AP or extra study classes for gifted. Most chinese students, starting at elementary age wore school uniforms.

Success in College

I have been researching if a college that a person attends affect the rest of their lives, ie, Ivy League vs. state schools. On the EBSCO website I found the article, ELITE COLLEGES DON'T GUARANTEE SUCCESS by Anne Kates Smith that addresses my topic.

CRISPR-Cas 9

The tool used to edit genes is called CRISPR-Cas9, which stands for Clustered regular interspaced short palindromic repeats. CRISPR has become more and more popular in the scientific world for its applications towards both biological and therapeutic tools. A new concern about CRISPR is its specificity, off-target mutations have been broadly studied, but have proven to be one of the main obstacles in the delay of genetic editing.

A Delay in Genetic Editing

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 15:47:25 +0000

This article dives into the ethical debate of Gene Editing and the need to pause in our advances in the subject until we can weigh the risks. The article evaluates the procedure as well as discusses the possible benefits of using Crispr-Cas9 to alter specific genes. Following the positive sides of gene editing, the article shed some light over a concern in the science world of Gene Editing, and gave a specific example of editing gone wrong in testing.

Matilda: After the Movie

Hi people. So I made this animation thing based off a script I wrote for tech class. It's about Matilda Wormwood, except it's when she's grown up. It takes place on the day she's moving house, and she's with her mom (Ms. Honey), and Trunchbull (her great-aunt). Trunchbull is still rude, mean, and threatening, but Matilda's mom got stricter, and she's not as nice as she used to be. Matilda's still very rude, though.

I think my script flowed pretty well, so the dialogue sounded natural.
I think the plot could have had a better conflict that would add more excitement to the story.

Is education boring for a reason?

Wed, 16 Mar 2016 01:19:21 +0000

(image)

What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "school"? People usually say stress, grades, brain numb, maybe even stupid or boring, but consider the reason why students may say that, although they are told many times that education is a privilege. Does this mean that our schooling system in the United States may be too loose on pressuring our students into academic achievement?

The Future of Video Games

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 02:00:32 +0000

Have you ever wondered what video games will turn into in the the future. Currently games are getting a little repetitive. What I mean is that not enough new ideas or features are coming out. Many games these days are just shooting people to win or 2D platformers where you get past obstacles. Currently, these types of games are still not boring but what will happen when they do get boring? Will the gaming industry shutdown or will an exciting new feature come out. There are still many options. Nintendo had popularized the idea of hand-held gaming with the Gameboy back in 1989.

YV: Dystopian Warnings

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 20:48:33 +0000

(image)

One dystopian trait that worries me in today's society is constant surveillance. An example that I read from a BBC article was about the Edward Snowden scandal. Snowden, a former CIA agent, leak information to the public about how the NSA monitors people's calls, messages and search history. While I think some monitoring of people's telecommunications are important, it still does give you some paranoia knowing that someone could be viewing what you're doing right now. This is like 1984, and how the government in that book watch people constantly through the television.

No Need to Walk

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 18:21:24 +0000

Not much about technology today really scares me or gives me uneasy feelings about the future, so it took a while to find something, and what I did find isn't era fear inducing at the moment but I can see how one day it could be. Imagine a future in which nobody actually walks anywhere, taking away the most basic physical activity that is done by most of us for quite a while daily. This is the kind of threat that something like the swagway poses to us.

The Future Dystopia of Gun Violence

2025, a generation completely reformed. Every home, school, hospital, subway, coffee shop, library, movie theatre, and citizen, equipped with a legal handgun. Imagine a future where the means of defense is defined by the ability to shoot a firearm, no recollection of negotiation or peaceful communication skills from the past.

Advanced Technology Leading to Our Own Dystopia?

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 17:21:34 +0000

The ability for humans to play God has grown exponentially over the past few decades and there is no sign of ceasing. The new technology being developed is meant to improve the lives of all and keep everyone safe. With all these improvements and altercation ,a door opens up possibilities to a future that is entirely engineered. While we focus on the newest iPhone and its capabilities (Which no one seems to completely understand the power of the device) or a hover board made my Lexus, startling enhancements come in the future of warfare, and humans abilities to defy the laws of nature.

The future is a mysterious place. We will never be completely sure about what exactly it has in store for us. We can, however, help form the future we want. The future depicted from the 1960's was a bright, flowing city with sun shining and people having a great time with life while our modern depiction is more often than not a smoggy and dark and feels almost doomed. I want to know how you guys see the future and how we could possibly change the dark vision of the future.




Questions about Regrets

Fri, 30 Oct 2015 17:03:07 +0000

Although there are many challenging parts to being a high school senior, the scariest part of it all is the fact that adulthood is so near. I may be already 18, but that number doesn’t define my maturity or my status as an adult, legally yes, but otherwise no. With decisions about college consistently being brought up, we have to face the fact that pretty soon our future will be in our own hands. But now that we have the power that we have looked forward to most of our life, what do we do with it?
