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.


I&S: What did I learn…?

In a Individuals and Societies class, we learn about globalization and we finished assessment. Before we learn about globalization, I have not that much idea what is globalization and how it affect us. One dig thing I learn is globalization has a connection between our life, and it is big part of our life even though if you don’t know. In this unit we did a big project and I was really worry about this unit because we didn’t oftenly worked on those big project. What I learn form this big project is, it’s really important to think about the time and make a plan because when I started working on my task 1, I have no plan at the beginning, after that I realize I really need a plan to finished my work at due date. I really proud of my work that I can finished up at due date and proud of my grade too. Also I proud of that I had a basic skills to managed the time by myself.

Gapminder: Japan and India

In I&S class I’ve researched development in Japan and India. We are using Gapminding.

Birth Rate

The Birth Rate is the total number of births per 1,000 of a population in a year. In this graph, India has more birth rate than Japan and higher population. However both country getting higher life expectancy. Japan shows a decline for birth rate as an MEDC(More Economically Developed Countries). This is not beneficial because there wold be lass worker in industrialised a cities.

Infant Mortality Rate

Infant mortality rate is the number of deaths of children less than one year of age per 1,000 live births. In this graph, both country developed there infant mortality. It means both country get better medical treatment so it effected the infant mortality and life expectancy.

HDI is developed by the United Nations to measure and rank countries’ levels of social and economic development, view of a country achievement. In this graph, you can clearly see difference between an MEDC and LEDC. Japan has higher GDP per capita because Japan has a lower population(I can see the population by size of the circle). They have difference between Japan and India because Japan makes more money but has lower population.

Fertility Rate

Total period fertility rate (TPFR) of a population is the average number of children that would be born to a woman over her lifetimeJapan has low fertility rate than India. It related to birth rate because Japan also has lower birth rate. India has higher birth rate because India has bigger population.

Life Expectancy

Life Expectancy is the average period that a person may expect to live. Both country has really similar shape of developing. At 1918 influenza was prevalent all over the country, so suddenly life expectancy getting lower.

Development: Development is the overall growth of the indicators in the country. Overall, after observing data for all of these indicators, that Japan are MEDC(More economically developed countries) and India are LEDC (less economically developed countries).

We learnt about the meaning of life in Buddhists and rules they must follow. Like we learnt how to do meditation and bit history of buddhism.

What did you enjoy or find difficult?

I enjoyed was the meditation and Sutra(Buddhists write) because if makes me relax and I don’t have to think about anything when I doing meditation(few minutes) and the time past very fast.

What was the purpose of the meditation and the sutra copying?

I think the purpose of the meditation was to relaxing our mines and stop working for a minutes.

What impact does Buddhism have on our lives and the lives of people who live in Japan?

It can make people relax and calm. Most of Japanese people is calm and caring each other. I think meditation impacts  Buddhism  life because ,meditating is how they controlled they feeling. They feel calm, thinking deeply.They are free of negative feelings like anger or fear.
