TED Talk: Response

Time-lapse Proof of Extreme Ice Loss- James Balog

In this talk, James Balog starts off showing us that cameras can show us aspects of nature that we may never notice. He shows us footage of ice melting and cracking off glaciers. This is evidence that the earth is warming from all the fossil fuel in the atmosphere.This is from all the Co2 in the air and Co2 can absorb heat. That is why the earth is just getting warmer and warmer.

The Other Inconvenient Truth- Jonathan Foley

The earth is constantly warming from all the Co2 in the air. With all the heat going on, drought will settle on places that specializes in growing crops, with the drought going on the  crops are likely to die. This causes a global problem because without crop we can’t have food. Impacts the earth and eventually will cause famine.

Let’s Prepare for Our New Climate-Vicki Arroyo

These days, humans are building alot of roads and buildings, this is taking up alot of space in nature, now instead jungles and forests we are cutting down trees and replacing them with roads and skyscrapers. We also extract a lot of water, even emptying some of the river beds. This is mostly for growing crops, humans needs a lot of food in the growing population and are now taking up alot of land and water to make sure we get a enough amount of food.

Why I Must Speak Out About Climate Changes- James Hansen

Climate changes are beginning to change a lot due to the amount of fossil fuel in the air. The earth is warmer and our temperatures are changing drastically. When there are changes in climate the natural disasters are also affected. We may be facing new threats as natural disasters get more destructive and powerful.

Excuse Note Poem

Ms Lilly Mall,

Doesn’t like school at all!

People say she is as dry as a prune,

and looks like a baboon.

She is taller than a telephone booth,

even taller than Babe Ruth!

She’s as skinny as straw,

can be knocked over by a cats paw.

Her clothes are as dirty as mud,

people thought it was blood.

She never does her own laundry,

it’s as disgusting as raw poultry.

Her hairs are like worms,

also known as the squirming germ.

Her voice croaks like a frog,

people thought it came from a hog.

She doesn’t sing like a bird,

the thought is absurd!

Her eyes looks wrong, event he color is wrong

Oh no! Is she is the child of King Kong?

She gets F’s in algebra,

in P.E she has no stamina.

A loser in humanities,

her F test fills the city!

They call her Lilly Mall,

the Chilly Hairball.

Some say she is a badger,

others say she’s a poisonous adder

Every time she enters a blog post,

it would be like, “No Comment”.

They tease, they mock, they pinch and hit her with a ball!

That is the dreadful experience of Ms. Lilly Mall

*Please note that this is not meant to be harmful, just made a fun character during class

Trash Wars

Trash Wars


Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away……. Trash Knights from Universe X of Planet Z are straining to recover what used to be their world. While Evil Doctor Trash-Mouth is straining to pollute the world. (Filling it with trash, I mean) What is the Trash Knights mission? Stopping the evil Doctor Trash-Mouth, but Doctor Trash-Mouth is so powerful they are having a hard time.

Then…. one day a Trash Knight Mike and his mentor Kobi-Wan just received a mission from the most awesome Trash Knight Master Yado! Master Yado is a master in the skills of the Trashsaber. (Signature weapon of a Trash Knight) There plan is to….. sneak inside Doctor Trash-Mouth’s laboratory to destroy his minions(Trash-bots) and bring him to justice. Holo Haze along with Kobi-Wan is off for an adventure! Master Yado promised them support when they sneaked inside the laboratory. He says, “Give you support when you’re inside, I will, luck good!”

The two Trash Knights started to arrange their funerals just in case they don’t return in one piece, “Coffin, check. Flowers, check. Licence of a Trash Knight, check. Trash statue, check! Okay, we’re all ready to go!” Exclaimed Kobi, then got on a Trash Taxi to the laboratory. The two Trash Knights put on their trash armor, paid the trash bills to the trash driver then ignited their Trashsaber. Okay, I’ll repeat it again, (Talk fast!) the two Trash Knights put on their trash armor, paid the trash bills to the trash driver then ignited their Trashsaber. Suddenly, pieces of trash formed together forming two Trash-bots, minions of Trash-Mouth. Oh no!! The two Trash Knights jumped and…. (Sorry people but I need to make this part an action paragraph)
(Mike punches Trash bot No#1!) Whack! (Kobi cut a Trash-bot No#2’s head in half with his Trashsaber!) Pzzzz! (Trash bot No#1 gives Kobi and uppercut!) Wham! (Trash bot No#1 kicks Mike in the stomach) Oof! (Kobi is unconscious!) ZZZZ~ (Mike is mad!) Grr…. ( Mike jumps up and stabs the Trash-bot!) Pzzz! (Kobi wakes up!) *Yawn. (Normal paragraph is back on the scene)

Kobi was really grateful for Mike that he gave him a trash soda. With that, they stormed into the laboratory of smelliness. In their way was millions of trash-bots, Kobi throws an bottle grenade and exterminates them all, but… a huge cage opened up and the Trash beast comes out! Now, the trash beast is Doctor Trash-Mouth’s greatest creation. It can shoot plastic bottles that does great harm, but the Trash Knights haven’t abandoned hope yet, they used their Trashsaber then engaged the Trash beast in battle….. Kobi jumps up and cuts off the Trash beasts nose, then the Trash Beast shoots ,”The Big Bottle Of Doom” at Mike, doing great harm. Then Kobi cuts off the Trash beasts leg. They destroyed the Trash beast, Yippee!

Kobi got Mike out from a mound of trash. But before dying, the Trash Beast left a will,
“ Please go to my wife and say that… uhh….. *Groan…. that I wouldn’t be able to… *Wince… give Johnny a McDonald’s fish burger… I’m sorry….*Hand goes limp. The Trash Knights swore to respect the will and made a phone call to Mrs. Beast and her child Johnny. It wasn’t really pretty… it goes like this….“*Roar! Grr…… Boohoohoohoo!!!!!” *Johnny crying at the background. After that they kicked the trash door open and got trashinated by Doctor Trash-Mouth! (Frozen in trash) “Mwahahahahaha! Silly Trash Knights! You think you can stop me? Not a chance.” Sneered the Doctor, just after that Yado jumps into the scene and engages into a battle with Doctor Trash-Mouth. “Trash-Mouth! Your evil will end right now and right here, face the power of ouch my back!” Hollered Yado in pain. (Sorry guys, the annoying paragraph is coming back)

(Yado punches the Doctor on the nose) WAPOW! (The doctor slaps Yado!) SLAP! (Yado ignites his Trash-saber!) Pzzzzz (Doctor slaps Yado 5 times! And takes out his Blade of Trash) SLAP times 5 (Yado enters a sword fight with the villain) *Side slash! Upper slash! Kick! Thrust! Boom! Moo~ (Yado jumps up like a monkey and cuts the Doctor’s arms in half) “No!!!!” Yelled out the Doctor because he is defeated. (Heroic music)

Yado helps the two Trash Knights out of their filthy binds then brought Doctor Trash-Mouth to the 5-Star jail called, “Jail for Villains.” After that Planet Z returned the planet to how it was before, filled with flowers, butterflies, trees, unicorns, rainbow monkeys, and fairies! (Can you believe that?) What did we learn from this story? Pollution is scary, everyone please recycle or we will end up like Planet Z! By the way, this story is all made up XD

‘De Field Tsing Lin

‘De Field
Tsing Lin 4/17/11
Most people think the field is just a stretch of land covered in grass. They’re partly right, but the field actually contains a whole lot more. When I step into a field, I can hear birds chirping and leaves are on the ground that has a crackling sound when you step on them, and the screaming of all the children over there that are playing. But, sometimes I don’t only see the green short grass, but all the little animals like earthworms or maggots that are wriggling around. If I look real close, huge fire ants are crawling on trees that makes them look real dangerous, or the jungle gym from our ES Field at SSIS. I can feel the prickly grass beneath my feet and the rough surfaces of the tree, and if it is a sunny day I can feel rays of light warming on my back. I smell leaves and grass, together they make a dry, clean air the affects the field a great deal.

The Awesome Hamburger

You ever wondered how it would be like to have awesome superpowers? Well I do! My name is The Hamburger(That’s what the silly and fat reporters call me on the news) and I have the power of flight. I’m really sorry that I don’t have wings, I know that when you think of someone that flies they have wings. It really good against enemies because I can always lift them up while flying and slam them against a wall or something like that. And if they have some kind of a gun I would fly around dodging the bullets, get some kind of objects and whack them on the head. I could also use my agility to dodge attacks. My daily routine is actually pretty normal, no more different than a normal person. Except when I see some burglars or terrorists in the News that I would put on my awesome superhero outfit. (By the way, my Superhero outfit is a really cool one, I’ll describe it for you, well there is this big hole at the side from a scratch from a cat, a mask that is kinda like Batman’s, and a cape from Afghanistan laying on the ground filled with sewer water P.S it smells) After putting that on I’ll go out to teach them a lesson, like blowing up their get away car. Then they’ll cower in fear at the corner after I fly around with their helpers in my hands smashing into the glass window. After that I would just fly away without people noticing me. Then the rest of my day is normal unless there are more thugs on the T.V. Okay, if you could choose any Superhero who would you choose? Me of course, The Hamburger!

How To Writing

Have you ever wanted to make something to drink that is sweet and tasty? This is easy! Just make a cup of hot chocolate! Okay, the first step of what you need to do is to buy a bag of cocoa and marshmallows at your nearest store. I strongly recommend either Swiss Miss or Ovaltine. After that, boil some hot water then take out your cup. Rip open the bag of your cocoa powder then pour it all in your cup. Then fill the cup with hot water. If you want it sweet, pour less water. If you want it less sweet, pour more water, or you are so obsessed with sweet stuff that you could put two spoonfuls of sugar inside! Also, if you want something that is sweet and chewy, then put marshmallows inside! It really mixes well with hot chocolate. Stir it with a tiny spoon or another utensil until it turns brown, guess what? Presto! You just made yourself a cup of hot chocolate! So enjoy!

ESLR Writing

ESLRs are one part of the most important in our school . Mostly because it includes how we act and how we should act. There is Academic Excellence, which is trying your best. Sense of Self, be yourself. Respect for All, which is being respectful for everything and everyone. Balance In Life, try all kinds of different things to balance your life. Dedicated Service, helping people who are in need.
I identify Academic Excellence for trying my best at trying my best at different things like sports, especially basketball. Also Balance In Life because I always balance my activity, like right after doing my homework I would play video games.
You should always try to demonstrate these ESLRs, Dedicated Service and Respect For All. I would show Dedicated Service by helping everyone who are in need. Finally would show Respect For All by being nice to everything and everyone by helping them. Everyone could probably reach their goal, my goal is buying a Ferrari by demonstrating on of the ESLRs. Which Academic Excellence, all I need is to try hard to reach fortune and stuff.
