私の夢ーインタビュー

最近、日本語のクラスで自分の夢について色んなタスクをしました。作文を書いたり会話をしながら質問に答えをしながら会話したりしました。

うまく行ったことは会話をしている間、全部の会話を聞き取ることができて会話をもっと自然にできたことです。うまく行かなかったことは返事をしている間、少し関係ないことを話してしまい質問と関係がなかった答えで終わったのが少し不自然だったと思います。でも今までよりいろんなしゅるいの単語を使いながら会話ができてたと思います。次にまたやるときはもっとめいかくな返事ができるのをもくひょうにしたいです。

このタスクをしている間色んな性格と関係がある単語や自分をひょうげん出来る単語を色々と学ぶことができました。

While the young Montague and Capulet gangs clash into one another, the young and brave Benvolio Montague, speaks up on how tired he is with this feud. He also talks about Romeo Montague his cousin, with love, and reveals the truth behind Romeo’s drama.

What’s the relationship between you and Romeo? And, how do you and Romeo get along?

Romeo and I are cousins, but I feel as if he is my closest friend than a relative. Romeo and I are always together since we were young, and we are always there for each other. So, yeah, we get along really well.

It sounds like you know him really well. Tell us what kind of person he is?

Yeah, I know him better than anyone, even his father. Well, he trusts me more than anyone so we don’t keep any secrets from each other. It explains what kind of person I am right? he is really kind and he wants everyone to get along. But he is really sensitive and that gets me worried sometimes… He is also really moody so it is kind of hard to measure my affection with him. Especially with love and relationships. He is so love sick (whispers)

He’s love sick?

You know Rosaline? A daughter of the Capulets. He fell in love with her, but apparently she didn’t like him back…and that caused a lot of trouble for him. He basically became depressed. He cried so much, that I’m pretty sure he used around 5 boxes of tissues. He also wrote a poem and a song about her. I can probably make an entire story about his love life because it’s so dramatic.

Rosaline? You know there is a rumour about Romeo and Juliet Capulet. Do you know anything about that?

Juliet who? Are you talking about the daughter of the Capulets? Romeo never said anything about her, so I don’t think it’s true. And you know she is a Capulet.

On the topic of the Capulets, rumor has it that you and some friends broke into a Capulet party. Is this true?

Umm… Nope, we didn’t. I’m a Montague I’m not allowed to go to the Capulet’s party. Who said that?

Really? But we have pictures and other evidence of you at the party. Are you sure this isn’t you? (Shows pictures)

I’m so bad at lying! Alright, I admit it. Romeo, Mercutio and me, we might have snuck into a Capulet party. Because Romeo really wanted to see Rosaline. Why not? It’s not our fight, it’s our fathers; we didn’t have any bad intentions towards the Capulets. I’m pretty sure they saw us, but Sir Capulet kinda just accepted our presence. We had so much fun.

So what do you think about the Montague and Capulet feud?

I hate it. I actually don’t even know why we are fighting, so there is no point in fighting. If they knew each other, there would be no fight between Montagues and Capulets. Perhaps, if Romeo and Rosaline had been in a relationship, it would have affected the families positively, you know.

I see… Recently there is some issue between Montagues and Capulets, when Mercutio died. You are on the Montague side. Many people think you gave false testimony to Prince. Any comment on that?

That is definitely not true at all. You know I’m a person who fights for peace. I’m smart enough to know what is going to be happen if I lie. It’s going to make a situation worse and what’s the benefit of that?

Stockmarkets

Q) Companies will do well in the short run and/or the long run and another that may fall in the short run and/or the long run and give reasons for your choices. What may have influenced the increase or decrease in the price of each stock

LG

I think LG(066570.KS) is going to do well in the short run because the stock is keep increasing by unveiling new devices. They will do well because recently (Feb 22), ‘The G5’s unveiling has helped push LG shares up 3 percent'(1) and it still affect LG positively. In long run they also going to do well because they lost money from its mobile business last years, however between July to August they are keep increasing (trend from the last 6 month) so they will do well in the long run. They did this by ‘replace or upgrade functions such as camera and audio independently'(2).

Starbucks

I think Starbucks (SBUX.SW) is going to do well in the short run but not in the long run for a while because I think weather affect a lot. Middle of  September when the weather gets cold stock started to increasing but from now the weather is going to get warm so it’s going to do well in the short run(about a week to two weeks) however from the December the trend is decreasing.

The Effect of Music on Memory

Today in I&S class we did an experiment to how does music effect on memory. To test this experiment we had 4 lists of 13 random words and chose 4 types of music. We had silence, the Beatles, Guns&Roses and Let it go.

Before we started this experiment I predicted that the class was going to have the highest average score in silence because we can concentrate more than with the music or noise, so worst was going be Guns&Roses.

I hypothesis was right on highest score. However, the result was different because Beatles song ended up with the lowest score. The reason is because it was the first time we played the music and tried to memorize the word, we weren’t used to it.

Nature vs Nurture

Scientists have been a continuous debate on either our genetics or how we were nurtured (nature vs nurture) had more of an effect on us today. Most of the research has been done on identical twins because they have similar DNA, that can support their arguments and easy to see the difference or similarity between them.

Which is a greater influence on who we are, our genetic make up or our surroundings?

NATURE: In Edinburgh University support nature side, they researched 800 sets of identical and non-identical twins to learn whether genetics or environment had a greater effect on how successful people are in life. 800 sets of identical and non-identical twins to learn whether genetics or upbringing has a greater effect on how successful people are in life. They asked a series of question “Are you influenced by people with strong opinions?”. Applying their answers, researchers could assess and categorize different personality traits for each person. Researchers found that identical twins were twice as likely as non-identical twins to share the same personality traits, it shows that their DNA was having the greatest impact.

NURTURE: Lot of scientists and psychologists did lot of experiments, like identical or non-identical twins test or experiments on animal. If environment didn’t impact on us, then identical twins should be exactly the same in all result and outcomes but a number of studies show that they are never EXACTLY same. It is hard to say which on has a bigger impact on us, but personally I believe that nurture has a bigger impact. I think nurture has a bigger impact because I can see the difference between my mother and her sister. They are identical twins, but they have different talent and way to think (perspective) because they had different nurture and environment. My mother was living in Japan for six years and I can see her personality and perspective changed, it’s easy to see they changes because when we were in Korea and lived close, they had same personality and perspective.

Starting your own business

The first I&S project was that we need to design our own product and make a video to investors. We decided to make a product that customer can design their own backpack.

Idea of my group was company call DyB is a small company that lets customers design their own backpack. DyB will be an online service where you can select the parts you want and we will fit them together to make the perfect bag for customers. The prize of each individual part will be shown when you select it so you have an overall view of how much the end product will cost. However the current overall prize will be viewable on your screen whilst you are still designing the bag. To make sure you know what the bag will look like when all the parts are put together there will be a sample bag that will change and adapt to your selections. To make the decisions easier for you suggestions for you linked on the page

The website will let you pick each part of your own backpack and you can design your own. You can add features like paper organizer, protection cases, portable chargers that fixed on the bag, pockets for your phone or train pass and pan. also it has space for snack box. You can chose if you need pockets on the side for water bottle. Also you can choose color and different designs.

We would need 40-50 people. 5-10 truck drivers, 10-20 managers, 10-15 mechanics, 7-10 forklift drivers.

Product will be available to everyone and it will be as cheap as we can make it. An approximation of the price of one bag would be 150 US $ but it would obviously change the price by what features you choose.

We will need quite a bit of money to start the company. 50,000 US$ would probably be enough for the beginning and then we could see how much profit we make off of this. Later on, we can decide if we need sponsors or if we already make enough profit.

Tutor: Goals for this semester

According to last year’s report, my strength is how I was working with the group. I didn’t lead the group, but I was a good follower and if I need to lead at some part I try my best to combine  other’s idea and my idea. However, I need to improve my reflection skills. Also to be more courageous.

  1. Read more books to improve my English, I think this is important and fastest way to improve my English.
  2. Do my homework on time. Last year, I didn’t organize myself that much so I need to improve my organizing skills to make my works better.
  3. Shere my opinion. I need to be more confidence and work more hard in class.

 

Tutor : First week of HS

In frist week of the High School I was half excited and half worried about my high school life. I was excited about meeting new student and meeting a new teacher. Also, I was really excited about the Art classes because we can focus on one art(Art or Music or Drama). I choose Art, and we have art fo 2-3 times in a week. That means you can focus on your work and you have more time to work on at the school. I think that is really good and I really excited about because you can ask for feedback to other, especially teacher.

There were some low points on my high school life so far. It was difficult to get used to new high school system, like each subject has a different member of students. I also felt some presser and realised how different from middle school and high school is because teacher gets higher expectations at my work.

Another important thing is homework. This year, I like to make my homework notebook and don’t leave it to the last minutes.

SHAKA CITY!

IMG_5497

Wanna go to a place where it makes your dream come true? Well…. Let us introduce our city.

SHAKA !!!!!!!!!! 🙂

In the center there is a big hospital so when someone needs to go, wherever you are in the city, it would be close to you. In the hospital there are 10000 rooms, heliport in case there is an emergency. There are four roads connected to the main hospital so that there can be people coming from outside of the city can come, and there are 5000 parking spots so that people can come without constraint. There is a humongous natural park in the other half of the hospital for better air in the hospital.

Every building has a solar panel so that we can stay eco friendly. Next year, we are planning to make a power plant that makes electricity using the fire made from the burning garbage.

The city also includes police stations on each corner, limiting the crime in the area. However, the police stations are further away from the educational centers and schools, to prevent intimidating or scaring the children, yet still keeping them safe. In addition to the parks and many nature walks, the city park provides a variety of religious buildings for peaceful and calm retreats including a Church, a Shrine and a Mosque. Next year, we plan to add in a variety of religious building next year, depending on the many people’s religions and beliefs living in our city.

In this corner, there is a mall almost as big as the hospital, and in there, there are all types of shops, such as supermarkets, toy stores, fashion stores, game centers, cinemas and more. It is because if there are the shops all in one place, the citizens wouldn’t have to move around to go to the shops.

Near the mall, there would be the school of the city. That includes places from kindergarten to university. We made everything close because then we can have a larger campus, and the citizens wouldn’t have to change the way they go to school. We made the mall near the schools because in school the students would need to buy supplies and it would be easier for people to buy supplies if the mall is near the school.

We made an apartment that is shaped like a circle because in the center, there would be shops, and so that all parts would be close to the shops in the center. In the center, there are shops such as supermarkets, sports center, and restaurants. On the top of the apartment, there would be lots of solar panels for the apartment and the whole city. There are 7 towers to the apartments, A-G so that lots of people could live in the city. We made it all in one building because then everyone is close to each other, and people can be close to eachother. Around the apartment, we put a natural park around it for good natural environment.

Next to the schools and the apartment, there is a natural beach where there are lots of sea animals living there. In a certain area of the beach, people would be able to interact with the animals there. Near the beach, we are planning to add gift shops, supermarkets, and restaurants so that people can buy souvenirs and food for the beach. Next to the beach, there would be a theme park so that the visitors or the citizens of the city would be able to play without being bored. In the theme park, there would be attractions such as roller coasters, ferris wheels, haunted houses and more. Near the beach and the theme park, there would be an aquarium the so the same reason we set the theme park, and also so that the visitors and the citizens wouldn’t have to move much to have fun. It would also be interesting if there is an aquarium near the beach because you can see different sea animals even though it is in the “sea”. In the same area, there would also be volleyball, basketball and tennis courts, and recreational areas so that people from all ages would be able to enjoy this area.

A corner of a mountain containing a forest is located over here, and people are free to visit and explore the area as much as they want, as long as they don’t destroy it. You are allowed to come and start a camp with your friends.

Across the street from the edge of the mountain is the Local park, where citizens or this city can freely visit, have fun and enjoy their time. To make sure no one tries to be naughty, one of the 5 mini police stations in the city are located right next to the park inside the same block.

Just to make this city extra interesting and to make it more city-like, we have added a zoo and a museum divided by a river lead straight to the undergrounds of Shaka city. What little child doesn’t want to visit a zoo full of animals? In fact anyone of any age can come and visit the animals. Another cool aspect of this city is the the museum.

Lastly, the roads in the city are built for all types of vehicles including cars, trucks, buses, bicycles, etc. The roads are separated into four, each building built around the roads. This makes it much more convenient to transport from one place to another, making the city extremely difficult to get lost in. Overall, the city provides an easily accessible way to transport, regardless of where you are in our city.

 

Why do people view history differently and why does it matter that they do?

Why do people view history differently and why does it matter that they do?

People see history differently because people have different perspectives and grew up in different environment. So if people pass the same period and saw same history or events, but they remembered in different way, because they have different perspective.

One example is different religions. It is because they grew up in different environment, mostly family influenced and family. Some time this is matter because they have small fight between different religions because different religions have different beliefs and rules, also different perspective on one event or stuff.

I realize that when I was interviewed, people has different perspective and view history differently. I think it depend on how does that event affect that person or how they felt, also how many time they hard about that events. For example, my parent was lived in Korea beginning of economic crisis but Korean news or article didn’t showed information in detail way, also my parent was moved to Japan so it didn’t affect to them too much, so they don’t have detail information than other Koran people.

Dare To Be Different
