Change the World PLN

In April 2008 a suicide bomber blew himself up aiming at local Iraqi Police in Mosul, Iraq killing 12. Al-Ajmi was a detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and was released. With Obama shutting down the prision more than half of the detainees will be released and will go back to their terrorist organizations and will keep on fighting the US according to experts. Is Obamas decision to let the enemy out of the cell and back onto the battlefield?

lost generation PLN

Personaly i do not agree with what this video says, because the narrarotor says "Crtitcs" and crtitics say what they believe not always based in facts. The part i do agree on is that we do have the power to change to decide our future. No critic can say the how many divorces i will have or what my job will be. They do not watch or classrooms, they do not stand in our shoes, they do not think the thougts we think. They have no data and proof that can prove that can pridict what we do, what our actions will do. What matters is that no critic or expert on our generation or no youtube video can say my future for me.

I Rememer When

In the Video we saw in class it is obvous that change is what matters. It shows that day by day technology changes and the next day that change shows up in the classroom and effects how we learn. I remember when we used overheads to show lessons, now we use projectors linked to the computer so we can see videos, pictures and examples of work. Most people dont relieze what a big connection there is between the change in technology and the classroom, and it will the relationship will grom bigger and stronger.

Three items

One of my three items would be my boxing gloves. These represent me because i like physical sports, i did wrestling for three years till this year when i fractured part of spine. Since i cannot wrestle anymore i started boxing and love it, my dad and grandpa boxed as well so its kinda in my blood.

The next thing would be my IPOD like most kids. I have 1500 songs on it and i listen to all of them. I have every genre on there, alot of bands of those genres, and lots of songs of those bands. Very unique and different, but then again so am i. I like alot of sports, activites, subjects and am very easily amused.

The last of these items would be a car, like you i love to travel. I have only been to Mexico and Canada but want to see the world. It is my life dream to see and travel the world and see MT. Everest.

In the Nata Village blog Family Planning Support Group, what matters is family because the village families get together on Mondays and discuss family issue. With Divorce on the rise it is important to try to prevent it from happening. More and more kids are having difficulties growing up because their parents are divorced and then they have a better chance of getting a divorce when they grow up. If every family could spend at least ten minutes a week talking to each other about their issue imagine how many families would have a stronger relationship. Do you think a support group like this would help families in need?

Cancer is killing more and more people each year, in Colorado. The Rocky Mountain News reports that in Colorado an extra 300 deaths are due to cancer. A report shows that Coloradoans in poverty smoke more, don’t get as much exercise, and are more obese. These conditions help the cancer form and increase. And also generally they have less health care. Across the world we are fighting cancer whether we have it or not, and with no cure it is deadly. So what are we going to do about it?

Ever heard the saying, “ Respect your elders.” Or, “ The older the wiser.” In the Nata Village blog, they are honoring those sayings by giving people in the village who are 60+ a day of events. The events included singing, dancing, speeches, and a big great lunch. What if every elderly person could spend one day teaching the rest of us lessons, our world would improve greatly. Most elderly people have lived through some of the most important history that has made what the world is today. Some have seen the Great Depression, and with our economy on the verge of going under, elderly people probably have some great ideas about what to do and what not to do, after all they lived through it. Do you think in our modern world we respect and listen to our elders enough?
