Reflection for Poverty Disscussion

For this unit, I represented the United States of America. We had to choose ways to eradicate poverty. I chose to let the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) to expire and let free trades to go on without any restrictions. My country is a wealthy country because we have a lot of trades going on. After the debate, I still think that this is a good idea. I know that other countries need money to fix there country because of some damages and need money help part of their population to grow out of poverty but letting MEDC give 1% of their GDP to LEDC will probably make a lot of conflict between countries. This is because some MEDCs might complain about how they need to give money and some LEDCs might complain that they need to get help from other countries. But I think that by letting the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) expire and let free trades to go on without any restrictions most LEDCs will learn how to make there GDP grow by free trade and it might be the safest way to eradicate poverty. Therefore I think that choosing the SDG (Sustainable Development Goals) expire and let free trades to go on without any restrictions will help decrease the poverty from many countries.

Chicken Wing Disection


There are muscles called tricep and a bicep, tricep contracts when you extend your arm and your bicep relaxes. When you pull your lower arm up your bicep contracts and your tricep relaxes.



the chicken wing has hinge joints on the elbow like human elbows. In this video, you can see how the tricep contracts when we stretch it and the bicep contracts when we pull the upper arm and lower arm together.—>IMG_0054-2mhnxhk


The chicken wing is very similar to the human arm because they have joints and ball sockets too. There is a ball socket in the shoulder so that humans and chickens can have a full motion in their arm. On the elbow, there are hinge joints that work like a door. It looks like you have a ball socket from the outside of the elbow because it looks like you can move it in a circle but you can move it in a circle because there is a ball socket in the shoulder.


superfood: Is Carob a Superfood?

What is Carob?
Carob comes from a pod of a tree of the same name, which is native to the Mediterranean. The ripe pods contain a sweet pulp that is dried, roasted, and then ground into a powder. That powder is called carob powder and is sold as is or made into chocolate-like chips.

Both the powder and chips are similar to cocoa powder and chocolate chips in color, but their flavor is unique. Carob is less bitter than chocolate and has a roasted, naturally sweet flavor (carob chips aren’t made with added sugar for this reason). Carob also happens to be caffeine-free and high in fiber.

why we call it a superfood?
I am going to talk about 3 nutrients that carob Chips have. Before I tell you how much Protein and Fibre and Sodium there is in carob chips I will tell you how important Protein and Fibre and Sodium is. Hair and nails are mostly made of protein, Protein helps us build and repair tissues. Fiber supports us digests food. Sodium is a mineral that is required for maintaining blood pressure and a normal fluid balance in the body and transmitting nerve impulses. That’s why eating foods with Protein and Fibre and Sodium in it are important. Now I will tell you how much Carobs chips have Protein and Fibre and Sodium. In Carob Chips there is 13.33g of protein in each 100g. It also has 13.3 of Fibre and 333mg of Sodium in each 100g. People say that Carob Chips has a lot of Fibre and Sodium but let’s compare it with a non-superfood. In Dark chocolate, there is 7.50g of protein in each 100g. It also has 12.5g of Fibre in each 100g and 50mg of Sodium.

I think this shows the reason people call it a superfood because it has a lot of Protein and Fibre and sodium. Those are some nutrients that we need (there are other nutrients that we need in our body but these are just some), it is important that we take enough of them. In a day we need 50g of protein, 25g of Fibre and 2,400mg of Sodium. I think you should eat Carobs and other foods (that are not superfood) with it because you can’t have too much of it but still can get good nutrient with it.

Other foods that can you can get the same nutrients from
Like I said earlier there is 13.33g of Protein in Carob Chips but if you eat 100g of almonds there is 26.67g of Protein and that is a lot more, of course, you don’t have to eat 100g of almonds to get all the protein it is just that you can get a lot more. In Carob ships there are a lot of sodium too like I said earlier. In Carob chips, there is 333mg of Sodium but you can get more sodium from Cottage Cheese. There is 409mg of sodium in Cottage cheese and that is a lot more than 333mg of sodium in carob chips. For Fibre I couldn’t find any foods that have more fiber in it than Carob chips and so I think Carob chips wins on that one. But you can still get more Protein and sodium from Almonds and Cottage cheese.

There are some things to be careful of when you eat carob Chips. Don’t eat too much Carobs Chips because in a 100g there is 23.33g of fat and in Dark chocolate, there is 12.50g. Earlier I said it is a good idea to eat Carob then Dark chocolate but you shouldn’t eat too much because there is a lot of fat. 

Problems there might be because it is called a “superfood”
People might think “this is a superfood so if I eat a lot of this then I will be healthy” but If you eat too much of the carob chips it isn’t that healthy because just because you eat a lot of sodium or fiber it doesn’t mean you will instantly become healthy.

I&S Zoo Building Game Review

In I&S we had to play a game called Zoo Building Game. In the game we start by having space to build our zoo but we had some money to start with then we buy things like a ice cream shop or an animal space. There were 15 levels and each level you go to gets higher each time and the levels will get harder to achieve. When I was playing level 9 it was hard to achieve for me because I had to build a monkey forest and upgrade it till 3 in 5 days and earn 5000. It was hard because I didn’t know how to make my monkey forest t level 3 before the day 5, but I tried different ways then I figured out that I just have to keep the money till day 4 that I made then use it because that means I earned 5000 and I could upgrade my monkey forest to level 3. I learned in this game that it is very hard to own a zoo and get enough money to feed animals and etc. I learned that building a zoo bigger each time is hard because the balance of the money can get unbalanced and that can effect on how much money you need each day. I found out that sometimes saving up some money can help a lot for the future on what you have to buy and pay for. In this game it is more easy then the real life because a lot of people come each day but in real life I don’t think a lot of people come each day and that makes it hard. Sometimes you have to make sure you have enough money and make sure that it is balanced to how much you have to pay to make the zoo bigger and how much you should keep etc. I also learned that some animal space or animal can be more expensive then others. I learned that you have shops and animal spaces to make money especially the shops because everybody goes there to get a memory of going to the zoo so that can help make more money and build the zoo bigger.

My Strength and Weakness

I am proud that I was thinking about how I would carve my printing plate when I drew my plan. I did a lot of prace printing so that I don’t make a mistake on my final printing. I am proud that I made the design interlock. I am proud that I also did well at printing it on to a coloured paper because there was no to much paint or . I did well carving because i didn’t make a mistake on my printing plate and did it steady so that I don’t slip. Next time I would think about good colouring choices because when I did my printing the colours didn’t match much. I would change my motif by making the flowers holes bigger so that it is more easy to carve it and will not make mistake.

Creative Thinking

Before I made my plan my motif, I imagined how it would look when I print it to make sure it looks the way I want it and if it will interlock. I also made sure that the motif will interlock by practice printing on a scrap paper and will cave a little if it look like it need a little adjustment. Those two  helped me because then I got a lot ready before the final printing and made no mistakes. I also made sure my motif had negative and positive space and was equal.

Cultural Influence

My cultural influence was these two↓

traditional-japanese-stencil-designs-29-1024 (1) islamic-designs-12-1024 (1)

First we made two motifs and one of them was influenced by the flower one and that one is a Japanese motif, the second one which is an islamic motif and I used he idea of that by making a shape in the middle of the motif that is like the islamic designs. I made sure that the edges or my motif connects so that it can create a cool shape. I also carved small flowers because I love nature so I wanted to add some of that. I carved a shape/design that I really like in the middle because it is the most important part in my motif. I made two motif designs and my final motif was equally influenced by them.

  • Did you create a unified pattern with your color plan? Is it ordered or random?
  • Is your artwork interlocking? How accurate is your interlocking?

Pattern Unity

I made a pattern by making the edges all the same so that i can have 4 shapes that are connected by the shape in the edge. First I thought using different colour should be cool but when I was printing half way through I knew that was a bad idea but I couldn’t change it because it was almost the due day. Yes it is interlocking as you can see in the picture above.


I&S Reflection

I was a creative thinker because, this picture below shows that i put the information that is similar to each other so that people can go through the poster when they are reading it and understand little by little about the problem and how we can help to solve it.  I was also a creative thinker because I was thinking how to place the information on the poster, the picture of the poster shows that.

Screen Shot 2016-03-23 at 3.22.49 PM

I was a good collaborator because i put my information about the country i researched about and the information about the country my partner researched about together so that people can understand that different country has different problems but they both have the problem that has to do with water and hot it affects the town.

The difficult thing about this assessment was that it was hard to research about our problem because there wasn’t a lot of websites that talk and explain about this problem and how it effects people. It was also hard to gather information because we didn’t really know what to ask about this problem so then that effected what we researched about.

Drama Improv Reflection

What is Improvisation?

in Improvisation you have to accept every offer of idea in a scene. in Improvisation you have to name what character you are, try to explain what the character will do like if you are a dog bark or do something that that type of character will do in real life so people will understand what or who you are.
