What topic are you thinking of? Why? ADD a photo of your design and briefly explain how you think you’ll make it.

This unit will be about chair sculpture and it is not easy at all, there will be challenges regarding the making which is shaping, modeling etc. Some ideas have pop up in my head and one that i’m interested in is heaven and hell. We all use the design process to help make the idea more real and remove the impossible and make it easier. As stated I have heaven and hell although my first thought was on death i change many things and the result made me more happy. I want to have 2 heaven and hell land also the hell has grim reaper and devil also there is the image of texture in nail and sharp vs feather

Ecodome Day 21

Our second ecodome died of earlier this week, looking inside, there seems to be a lot of moist, the dead grasshopper had experience a thing that we had never foreseen, moisture. The air was too humid and it created a lot of moss, this killed of the breathing way of the grasshopper which is through skin. This was a crucial mistake and we fix it later on by having less water.

In conclusion, the water was too much and this was a mistake that both of the older ones had. Now, in particular, the moss was a new thing that we had to do some research and we found out something: “Moss forms from spores that are carried by wind currents and moving water. In most cases moss spores can not form in areas where healthy plants are already growing. ” This proved that our plant are growing weaker very fast.

We have the research so we decided to completely change all the plants.Furthermore as a more effective food we found that oatmeal is a great food for our grasshopper.

More ideas came to us to make the new ecodome. This time around, we put it 10 milliliters of water in a small cap and also we added 300 grams of oatmeal to the top as food for the first week. Around 10 grams of oatmeal was added to the soil as nutrition.

Also now we will put 1 grasshopper into the eco-dome so that there are more  20161108_14301720161108_14302920161110_114209

I also think I have all the extra information done correctly to help people understand my article. furthermore, I think that the construct of my news paper article was correct and easy to follow by many people I also had some power words to express the situation. Still I had some problem regarding the writing. I felt like my 5W were out of place and didn’t all be in the first paragraph of the text.

The journalism article:

Phu My Hung the changes through the years

 Phu My Hung is a developed area in Ho Chi Minh city the story of this region wasn’t the same in the past.


 This year in the 23 memorial of Phu My Hung Corporation. We came and interviewed a year-long employee and found out more about the start of this area.

 In 1999 two men, Mr. Peiser and Chen had hope in the area of Phu My Hung today. They changed the muddy ground and place into a very popular and advance zone. The start was rough this place was a mud land and was worth nothing.Through the years now this mud swamp is an urban area with new housing project being released every year.

According to their own website, Phu My Hung have a total area of 750 hectare and with the Nguyen Van Linh Parkway of 17.5km which leads you to Long An.

 On June 26th, 2008, The Minister of Construction Nguyen Hong Quan and Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Chairman Le Hoang Quan presented Phu My Hung the Certificate to recognize Phu My Hung “A new model city” .

Interviewing Ms. Hoai Thuong, there was more information that came up. She has been working in Phu My Hung for over 20 years and is one of the first generation employees.

What was Phu My Hung like before? “ When this place was in the start we have to travel by boat in order to get here, now it’s just great with all the roads.”

 According to Ms. Thuong, there were many changes that had occurred some more notable than others like better road, away from a lot of traffic jam, made good from the start. houses being made, having synchronized planning having clean roads, less dirt.

“ These changes defy and from Phu My Hung also separating it from a variety of other new urban cities.”

Who was the first man to thought of the changes?. Sir Lawrence S.Ting was the answer to the question.

 What was the vision of Sir Lawrence S.Ting at the time? “ He wanted to bring Taiwan to Vietnam and make Vietnam better not take from Vietnam.”

  Are there any changes that you are unsatisfied of? The new opening of the Phu My bridge is good but also has let much large trucks get to Phu my hung very easy. This  makes the worries for accidents.

 Phu My Hung has been through many rough changes in the past and despite the past Phu My Hung is and will be one of the best new urban town in Vietnam like it is now.
