Tomorrow Plan

Tomorrow is the end of the month which is Halloween but it also means I get to plan my schedule for the whole day. To start the day I am going to read Fahrenheit 451 which I have been reading for 2 weeks and I like it so far. For the second hour I am going to being working on science. In science I am learning about polymers. For the third hour I will be working on art. In art I have being doing water colors. Then I am going to take a lunch break. Then for the fourth hour i will be working on a script for a project Then for the fifth I will be working on some more art. Then for the sixth hour I will be working on my tree house to. That will be my day tomorrow.

Things I Did For The Week

There some new things that I have learned this week. One of the things in my Life of Fred book that in the world of physics they have a different meaning for it. In physics it means you actually have to move. Like if a guy is just standing holding things he is doing no work however, if a guy is going down to pick up he is doing more work than the guy holding things. Also I have finished learning about WWI. One of the interesting written documents was the Zimmermann Telegram. This telegram was written by Arthur Zimmermann , the minister of Germany, And was going to be sent to the Minister of Mexico. In the telegram the German minister says that Mexico should ally with germany and reclaim land from Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

Also I am almost finished with the last unit for latin for course 1. I have been learning so much in latin I love the way Rosetta Stone teaches latin. Also I have been learning how to make a good paper from an article I explain that in my writing post.

I would like to do more art next week to work on this project I am excited for. Also I would like to work on script writing. I might want to latin for an hour just to finish lesson 1. That is what I did for the week and things i want to do different.

 

Writing

The most venomous jellyfish alive is the sea wasp, which has a greater poisoning ability than any snake. When sea wasps search for shrimp they get close to the shore, which leads them to stinging people and leaving them with only seconds to live. The sea wasp, which is almost transparent, is only found in Australia not in America or Europe. The sea wasp has a deadly neurotoxin  that can kill more than 50 people, which makes it the most deadly creature alive.

I wrote a paper on sea wasps by using an article I had. First, to write this paragraph I underlined three key words from each sentence of the article.  After, I underlined the words I made a key word outline, using those words.  Once the key word outline was finished, I started to work on writing a rough draft.  After I had written the first paragraph I wrote another paragraph combining the sentences together, and making an even shorter paragraph using the word “which”.  That is how I wrote my paragraph on sea wasps.  The reason I had to write the paragraph is I am using the Student Writing Intensive course to improve my writing skills.

 

Podcast Plan

Soon I am going to start a podcast in my free time. I will be the host of the podcast. My friends will also be on the podcast as well. My friends and I will be discussing the following topics video games, movies, TV, books, and pop culture. In video games we will be talking about recent games that have been released . We will be also talking about consoles and  games for those consoles. In movies we will be talking about a movies story line and the charterers in the movie . Also we will talk about our opinion on a movie that has not came out yet and if we think if it should come out or not. For TV we will be talking about and individual episodes or the TV series in a whole. We will be also talking about new series that are about to come out and what we think of  the story. For Books we will talk about a book or a series of books. Also the characters and story line of the book. For pop culture  we will be talking about things that are popular in the world and trends that are going around. To record the podcast I will be using the Audio- Techinca AT2005USB Cardioid Dynamic USB/XLR Microphone. For my microphone I will be a using a windscreen witch helps with the audio of the podcast.  I Will be also using a microphone boom stand because if I where to have a stand on my desk it would pick up tapping on the desk.  Another  piece of equipment I will be using headphones to listen to the podcast while we are recording.  The soft ware I will be using a Skype recording software so it will be easier to record. That is how I will be recording my podcast comment on what you think.

A Sign of Four

The Sign of Four is the second book in the Sherlock Holmes series written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The book takes place in London after the events of the first book. However we do not know how long after the first book. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did make a few mistakes one of them is where Watson got shot. In the first book Watson was said to be shot in the shoulder but, in the second book Watson was said to be shot in the leg.

Also in the second book we learn that Sherlock takes drugs. In my opinion this Novel is a great follow up to A Study In Scarlet. This book in my opinion has more characters to send Sherlock and Watson on a wild goose chase. That is my review for A Sign Of Four If u want me to do a longer comment on this blog.

 

Black Holes

Black holes are  enormous amounts of matter that are packed into a very small area. The result of this is a  gravitational pole, that is so strong that not even light can escape the black hole.  Black holes where not even coined until 1967 by John Wheeler.  However, black holes where predicted in Einsteins’ theory of general relativity. Scientists can’t directly observe black holes with any electromagnetic radiation. There is still a way to detect a black hole by their effect on the matter around them.  If you  are wondering how black holes are made it usually starts with a star dying or 2 stars that collide into each other. They are made by supernova explosions witch makes the star collapse under the force of gravity. Then the star reaches a point called the event horizon.  Once it has reached the event horizon it becomes a frozen collapsing object, therefore making a black hole.  That is what I have learned about black holes if you want to look up information  black holes I would use http://science.nasa.gov/astrophysics/focus-areas/black-holes/ it is a helpful site.

The Assassin

I have been learning about WWI in my home education this week and last. One of the events that started World War I was the assassination of the Arch Duke of Austro-Hungary. The events surrounding the assassination of the Arch Duke are very interesting.The assassins were originally supposed to kill the Arch Duke on the day he went into to Sarajevo for a festival. The car the  Arch Duke was driving had his wife in it and the car had an open top. The first assassin came out and threw a hand grenade at the car. The Duke dodged the grenade and then it detonated hitting the second car. The original assassin ran to the river and took a poison pill and jumped in the river. The pill did not work and the assassin was taken for questioning.

The Arch Duke decided go and see the people who got hurt from the explosion. Authorities sent extra police to make sure no one harmed the  Arch Duke. The driver did not know where he is going and made a wrong turn. He has to reverse the car, which is a new ca,r for them and the reverse is slow. One of the assassins, Gavrilo Princip, happened to be right above him getting a sandwich when Garvilo realized the Arch Duke is right below him. Then the Gavrilo pulled out his gun, shot the Arch Duke and then shot his wife,killing both of them. Today that assassin is honored as a hero and there are iron footprints where Garvilo stood.

 

What I Did For The Week

The thing that I focused on the most this week was the Social Gospel Movement, which you would know if you have checked out my post.  Also, I started the 2nd book in the Sherlock Holmes series called, The Sign Of Four.  In science I started to learn about atoms.  Atoms are the smallest form of matter that we can see with an electron microscope. There are three parts to an atom: electrons, protons, and neutrons. I also am still listening to How to Read a Book, which I recommend because of the advice it gives.  For example, I like how the book describes the four levels of reading: elementary, inspectional, analytical, and synoptical.

One thing that I liked this week was being able to choose the subjects that I wanted to do and for how long on the last day of the month. I also like the website I am using for science which is Chem4Kids.  A thing that I did not like this week was that I had too little time for doing art.  Another thing I did not like was writing in the afternoon. I also did not like doing study skills in the morning. What I would like to change for next week is to have time to do more script writing and to do more art. Those are the things I did for the week and what I plan for next week.

 

One thing I learned about this week: The Social Gospel Movement

The Social Gospel movement happened during the progressive era between the 1890s and the 1910s.  The Social Gospel Movement took place in Canada and the United States and it tried to apply Christian ethics to social problems. The Social Gospelers thought that the second coming of Jesus would not happen unless humankind relieved itself from social evil.  They thought that human effort could fix those evils.

The leaders of the Social Gospel Movement were associated with the liberal wing of the Progressive movement. The Progressive movement was a group of rich people that tried to corrupt both public and private life through activities such as trust busting, the regulation of railroads, provisions for the people to vote on laws themselves through referendum, and the election of the Senate by the people rather than by state legislatures. We know the Social Gospel movement began in the 19th century, however we do not know when it officially ended. We don’t know why the Social Gospel Movement ended.  There are many theories suggesting why it ended. One theory cites the rise of neo-orthodoxy as a contributing factor in the movement’s decline.  Neo-orthodoxy was a movement in Protestant theology that was against the Social Gospel movement.  The  Social Gospel movement affected more  protestants in America than members of any other religion. The Social Gospel Movement held events to get people to join their movement because events drew lots of people.

The social Gospel Movement also had a big effect upon the American Federation of Labor. Under the influence of the social Gospel Movement, the AFL started a movement called Labor forward.  The Labor Forward movement was pro-Christian and “preached unionization like revival” in Philadelphia.

Those are only a few examples of what the Social Gospel Movement did. If you want to learn more, you can research it for yourself.  I learned about the Social Gospel Movement using the Liberty Classroom course on the progressive era.
