My Digital Footprint

I looked up on Google my name and where I live. Luckly the people that came up were people with the same name as me! It should be really weird to google yourself up and seeing a picture of youself with your personel information. A stalker could be stalking you!!!!! Or a serial killer could Google where you live and come and kill you!!!!!!  Just remember. Don’t ever put any personel information about you online. You never know who could be whatching! 🙂

Pi!!!

Pi has been around for 4,000 years. Many people have used pi to solve equations. Some of these people are: The Ancient Babylanions, Egyptians,  The Archimedes of Syracuse, and Greeks. Today Pi is 3.14 and it is used to find the circumfrence and radius. The ancient Babylonians calculated the area of a circle by taking 3 times the square of its radius. The used 3.125 for Pi. The Egyptians calculated the area of a circle by using 3.1605 for Pi. The first calculation of pi was done by Archimedes of Syracuse. They were one of the best mathematics! Archimedes showed that pi is between 3 1/7 and 3 10/71. Mathematicians began using the Greek letter πin the 1700s. William Jones introduced this symbol in 1706.

Normal Life? No. Crazy Life? Yes!

      Today in history we had a major unit test. I was really nervous. Then Mrs. Patterson ( I think that’s how you spell her name ) says ” Pick between the Hokey Poky and the Chicken Dance!” At first we were confused. Then we all said “Chicken Dance!!!” Mrs. Patterson has everyone stand up and do the Chicken Dance, including Ms. Bax! It was just….awkward. Me and Lexi also had a very awkward day in Mr. Kylers class. If you have Mr. Kyler, do ya’ll remeber that statue of the human body that Mr. Kyler keeps under a black bag? Well, me and Lexi are sitting at his desk helping him with our lion time assignments, then the black bag moves down and we can see the butt of the statue! Lexi says ” Mr. Kyler, the butt of your statue is showing.” Mr. Kyler says ” Mhmm, Do the butt.” I start to crack up laughing and Lexi is laughing with a disgusted look on her face! Ohhh….Mr. Kyler. Haha. Why can’t life be normal? 🙂

Invictus

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr.

What are similarities between Mandela and King? What are the differences?

    The similarities between Mandela and King are when they both were fighting against segregation. They were also arrested for fighting for their rights.

Look up the movie Invictus. Why was the poem important for Mandela and used as the title for the movie?

    I think a soldier is a great example of a hero in modern day life. It takes a lot of bravery to just step out of your house and go out to fight for your country. They also make a lot of sacrifices. They have to leave their family for a long time and they may also die if they are fighting in the battlefield.

     The poem talks about Mandela’s life and feelings and since the movie is mostly about how Mandela earned freedom for his country, it was named after the poem Invictus.

What are the qualities of a hero?

     The qualities of a hero are:

  • Bravery
  • Justice
  • Honesty
  • Determination
  • Loyalty
  • Selfless
  • Valor
  • Sacrifice

Write about who you think is a modern hero. What are the qualities that make him a hero.

     I think a soldier is a great example of a modern day hero. They have to have a lot of bravery and they sacrifice their lives and time everyday just to fight for their country.
