In the Volleyball Madness by the Nata village blog what is important is the teamwork involved in volleyball because it’s an essential part of life. When you play sports, teamwork is involved, and in Africa the little education these kids get will trade off for the exercise and teamwork involved in this sport. This idea is spread all across the world, not just in this village in Africa. People everywhere are trying get and stay healthy, sports like volleyball is a major way of doing that. Imagine if each government took a class on teamwork, how smoother things might go between nations. Would you play a sport not only for the fun of it but also for exercise and teamwork?

In Lost By One Vote by David Warlick is a very s true example of modern day controversy. David was singled out in a video posted on the Internet. In this video he was blamed for all the worlds suffering, evil, and how Iran would nuke the United States on Saturday. The reason for this is because he forgot to vote for John McCain in the primaries. This happened to be the only vote he didn’t do. This relates to the world because this video was posted by an extreme political action group named MoveOn. In today’s world more and more of these political groups are popping up and criticizing people for what they do differently from what they did. But I just kept reading and turns out you can put someone’s name in and it will show their name in the video. I dent it to all my family and they flipped. But truthfully what would you if your name appeared on a widely viewed video accusing you of something you did?

In Community Educators in the Nata Village Blog what matters here is the spreading of education of AIDS, HIV, stress reducing, and other conditions. In Africa there is a major issue, there are millions of deaths each year due to these diseases. And this issue is not just in Africa but world. With theses diseases spreading world wide it is important to follow the example these people are doing and educate ourselves on these deadly disease’s. If you could prevent a fatal disease from killing you or others around you, wouldn’t you do it?

In The Nata Village Blog, Contributions at Work, what matters here is that this poor lady gets help for her skin disease she has. It is important because the disease is caused by the blazing sun and it Botswana there is no getting out of the sun. This situation connects to the rest of the world because many people are unfortunately battling the battle with cancers and diseases. In Africa especially were there are little funds and treatment for AIDS, HIV, and many other diseases. No one can ever predict who will get cancer, it could be me. If I ever do get cancer and was in this persons shoes I would be a lot me relaxed knowing that people and some of the top doctors are out there fighting for me. Therefore it is important that we can help them out because if we were in their shoes we would like the help.

In the Nata village blog, School House Rock what matters is the school watchman. I say this because it is his job to make sure everyone gets up at five in the morning and make sure the staff is up and getting ready. This connects to some of the world, mostly third world countries because here they use an old truck rim as a bell. Since this village doesn’t have technology and money, like most of Africa they have to improvise and use what they got. They area they live in is extremely poor if they have to use truck rim for a bell, but that doesn’t stop them from going ahead and educating themselves. Just because they are poor doesn’t mean that they can’t learn. This shows just how lucky we are when our school can afford computers, electronic bells, televisions, and projectors, something that most high schools across the nation don’t even have, especially African schools. If only money was standing in the way between you and a better life through education wouldn’t you knock out that barrier and continue learning?
