Full House

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 19:33:34 +0000

While the birth rate in most Western countries is declining, the rate for those in less developed countries is increasing. In the article, "Six Billion in Africa," Africa was reported to have a birth rate of 4.7 births per woman, which makes their population rise at a much higher rate than the rest of civilizations. Once it was important to have large families so that more would be about to survive and help their family around the household. But now as more children are making it through infancy, the estimated population for Africa is about 2.6 billion people by 2100.

Personal Inquiry Reflection

Tue, 15 Mar 2016 15:33:10 +0000

I did find something interesting about our culture collage project. In the whole procedure from composition to presentation to others to the review I saw the difference between different cultures from each country and even the diversity in the culture from the same country and I found that interesting. I didn’t actually saw the different branches in the same american culture most people are talking about, but after I viewed some of them I realized that point. Everyone has a different and special viewpoint about their own culture and the large culture that we’re all in.

Petition Signatures Prove People Want Counselors

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 19:25:12 +0000

Hello lovely people! My senior project is about lack of academic and mental health counselors in low income neighborhood (Oakland). The type of field research I will be reflecting on is field observation. In this I created a proposal where I am asking the State of California and Oakland Unified School to provide more funding for high school counselors. After this I posted in Chang.org, where within two days, I receive 50 signatures, and now I have 115 signatures.

Dune: A Reflection

Wed, 14 Jan 2015 21:51:27 +0000

(image)

Dune, by Frank Herbert, is easily my favorite science fiction novel now. It is a masterpiece of literature and far ahead of its time, requiring the author to imagine and create an entire universe that is very complex, with unique and colorful characters and technology. It is set in the Imperium, a universe ruled by an emperor with many great houses to which he assigns fiefs to defend and rule over in his name. House Atreides is about to trade its fief on Caladan, a planet like Earth, for one on Arrakis, a harsh desert planet that is the only source of the valuable spice, or melange.

The Maze Runner

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 01:36:27 +0000

If you love thrilling sci-fi stories based on future dystopian societies, then the Maze Runner would be a great choice for you. This book was a wonderful read. Taking place in the Glade, with no one but hopelessly lost teenage boys desperately trying to escape, my attention was caught immediately. The writer, James Dashner, did an amazing job at captivating readers and creating the imagery. He always left me on the edge of my seat, I couldn't put my book down once.




Life As We Knew It: A Reflection

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 02:23:35 +0000

(image)

I have recently finished reading Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, and one of the qualities I liked most about it was that it transported me into its world so well that I didn't remember where I was in reality. I have read few books that can do that, so this book is one of my favorites.

Quick Write

Mon, 05 May 2014 18:12:03 +0000

I feel confident about finishing my first draft in time. I need to work harder in class and really put together what I want to talk about. I need to find topics for each of my paragraphs and start writing. I need to work at home if I do not work as hard in class this week.




Reflection

The reason i am not to confident about finishing my fist draft by friday is because i still feel like its so much work that has to be done. I am upset that i feel like this when it comes to writing because this is something i want to do. Then again it might not be a lot of work i have to do because i do overthink my assignments. In the end i always accomplish what is assigned but i hate being worried. As the days go on i'm pretty sure i will feel better about this research project.




Thoughts on a Classic

Sun, 04 May 2014 23:41:18 +0000

After reading The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, I am extremely happy that I chose this book. This book is not a boring classic, far from it. The characters are real world people with real world problems, a realistic conflict plagues the story, and there is plenty of action and romance for those that enjoy those kinds of things. This story does not have one central character, but instead chooses to focus on three individual characters whose lives are all intertwined. First is Dom Claude Frollo, archdeacon at Notre Dame Cathedral.

Rise of Nazism Reflection

The Holocaust was a large event that took place in 1938 to 1945. Adolf Hitler wanted to eliminate Jews, homosexuals, gypsies and cripples/mentally ill people. At first it was only in Germany, but as Hitler expanded his territory, he spread his beliefs. He wanted a nation of people that are one race, religion, physical features, and political views.

Reflecting on physical abuse

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 17:45:56 +0000

(image)

My groups research question is “Are there certain groups of young women who are more likely to go through physical abuse?”. Our hypothesis varies because did different sections, but one of our hypothesis was that girls of the age of 12-18 go through physical abuse by men. We also hypothesized the race, effects, and sexual orientation. Our predictions of each other were the same. We all believed the same thing for each section.

My Research Reflection

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 17:38:41 +0000

(image)

My research topic is employment. My group's research question is ¨How is the government helping unemployed teenagers, single parents, and immigrants? Is this a civil rights issue that needs to be addressed?¨ I predicted the research would show me what Oakland is doing for these unemployed people.

So far I've got a lot of information as far as unemployment rates in California. The best source I found is from a California State website. As of right now I can't answer my group's research question.

Reflection on My groups reserach

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 17:30:10 +0000

My groups research question is, “What are Oakland politicians doing to help uneducated people, teenagers, immigrants, and single parents that do not have jobs? Is it a civil right issue, why or why not?” My hypothesis is that Oakland politicians will help uneducated people the most.
