My reflection of top chef. in top chef, I learned a lot of new skills such as how to make the icing, pasta, bread making

the first dish we made was the mozzarella sticks. they were made by using canola oil to fry rolled up mozzarella an undefined cheese and cheddar cheese. we then covered them in corn starch then egg mix. we covered them in bread crumbs then repeated the process twice then frying for a minute or two. the way we decided to plate our plate was a combination of spur of the moment thinking and the pre-thinking of trying to make our dish look spicy when it was mild.

 

Universe reflection

our universe is a massive thing. we can get no comparison unless we see it for ourselves. sadly we cannot such as much of the universe is too far away. one of the ways we tried looking is by walking around the school as a class. but most people still underestimate the size of it. an analogy that would be useful is like the milky way is a grain of sand as the universe is the earth but double the size. in this situation, we all know how small a single grain is. this is the world we live in so only a fraction of the grain is where we are. this is my idea that how big the universe actually is using something as simple as a grain of sand in this vast world of amazing things.

The China Boxer Rebellion

yes, the boxers do deserve the bad rap that was given to them because of all of the damages they instigated that all sourced from xenophobia. While no form of diplomacy between these two powers happened it shows how the Chinese didn’t want a peaceful solution as supported when the Emporer exiled his attendant that came to a successful solution.

Mr. Demon Fox

A quick overview: for our project we made robots with cardboard and motors and an Arduino board.

Questions:

my biggest success was getting the coloration of the fox perfect and ready to paint making it a darker orange with some lighter highlights. we also had really nice programming that I really enjoyed.

my biggest obstacle was time constraint because I wanted to do so much more with our fox but didn’t have enough time but I thought we could have made it amazing otherwise.

the advice I would give others is to make a plan for each class so you can get done quickly and can help program along the way. it is the best and fastest solution that worked for us

The Bishops Heir

  1. Write a fake obituary for the protagonist that shows understanding of your character as you see him or her: round, flat, dynamic, or static. See this pageand this page for some tips. See the blogofdeath.com and the NYTimes’ Portraits of Grief for some exemplars.

 

I am writing about The Bishops Heir by Kathrine Kurtz.

 

kelson Haldane died yesterday due to suicide. The cause of death of Kelson Haldane was suicide. King Kelson Haldane, was a young, wise, bold and finally broken king. Kelson was the son of the Deryni a race that held super natural humans who could use the power of magic. The year was during the middle ages and the power of the church and fanatical belief in gods were still very proonet.

 

He took up the throne when we was just 16 years old and had lead his country well the first year putting down the rebellion of Edmond loris (Ex-Archbishop) when he had started out. King Kelson was very young and has died at the age of 17. He was taught politics by his father as he had such an easy transition into power while others would have a hard time going into power.

 

He was wise beyond his years because of his many exploits in the war of his short rule. He learned of politics from an early age from his father because he has a very easy transition between from prince to king. He wasn’t overly arrogant or flaunted his power and was more conserved which shows in very experienced kings and nobles

 

He was very bold as he stood strong against many a foe and pushed back the pressure that came with him not being wed. he is forced into a political marriage but still goes against the wishes of his council by only doing it if Sidana agrees to it and hopes with all his life that someday it would be love. Showing his boldness he still refused to listen to most advice or threats to him.

 

He was broken, he was driven to suicide by the death of his bride that died between his arms while he lay their silently weeping he was soon deprived of his sleep then his sanity to save himself he spoke the one phrase that would kill himself and it did. Soon after archbishop loris made his move against the kingdom he took control and provided even more power to the church.

 

Overall he lived a full life of his short seventeen years through his many accomplishments and his undying compassion, boldness and his wisdom. sadly his funeral will be a private affair as such we are not allowed to attend but we will all remember him in heart.

Independent reading expostion

In my book  Eragon by Christopher Paolini, I focused on the setting of the book and how it affected the story. The first part of setting that you receive is the name of the country Ägleasea and the area the book is set in is Palancar Valley. Palancar valley is a small place that seems to hold no importance at all starting the book off with a mood of. This sets up how in this small unimportant village something big will happen. This something big is the arrival of sapphires egg. In the  “The Spine was the only place  that king Galbatorix could not call his own”(loc:172)I can infer that this sets up the conflict because king Galbatorix owns all of the land except for the spine based on this quote I can infer that the main conflict will be man vs man because it shows how this one person owns it all and he owns nothing while he’s suffering as well as struggling to make ends meet. he is a normal boy excluding his hunting tendencies he becomes your average boy trying to scrape through with his family. We learn that his mother Selina died when he was a child and his father left him here with Selina’s family. Next we are introduced to salon the butcher he is a man of big stature and paranoid of the spine due to what happened to his kings army in it at does not expand in my opinion this shows that the town of Palancar Valley is a very superstitious place since Salon was a little too quick to decline the egg that looked like it could buy the town. but alas he thinks it’s cursed. At the edge of Palancar Valley is Eragon house that is occupied by Eragon’s father figure Garrow and his brother figure Roran since he was adopted into this family. In this book up into this point, we are shown that even though Roran is off to do his work after a meeting with Katrina the love of his life. After Roran leaves is when things happen 2 mysterious people arrive in dark clothes searching for Eragon. This changes the mood to one of suspense where you get more and more excited due to the two dark-clothed creatures. This ruins the setting of peacefulness of Palancar Valley and adds tension and increase the tempo of the speed of reading.

 

 

The Monkeys Paw Found Poem

This poem was created using the words from William W. Jacob’s “The Monkeys Paw” short story. The concept of my poem is how characterization and how they change throughout this story. The first line of my poem ‘Mr. white a guilty smile’ is supposed to show how he is content with his life now and needs nothing. I chose ‘Herbert concentrating on the chess board’ to show he is a normal person who is enjoying his time with his parents playing chess. This line is one of the most important lines in my poem because of the major contrast created later. ‘Mrs. White, a white-haired old lady sat knitting by the fire.’ This finishes my attempt to simulate a classic household where the old woman is knitting by the fire giving her a normal demeanor. Back to the idea of a normal household inferred in the late 1800’s to early 1900’s where the family is by the fire enjoying themselves. ‘EVERYTHING WENT WRONG’ this is the line I want to put the most emphasis on because it is the twist of this poem. This is the start of the contrast between the normal and the irregular. The line ‘Mr. white cried’ is the exact opposite of his smile in the first line showing the change no matter how good or bad it is. ‘Mrs. White went mad’ this is talking about how she turned from this average old lady becomes this insane old coot who was lost her mind because of the monkey’s paw. ‘Herbert ten days dead’ the only reason to add this is that of the contrast and add the effect of suspense and horror. Finally, why I placed my words in the way that I did was to add emphasis on the line ‘EVERTHING WENT WRONG’ using the lines and making it the center of attention. I chose the monkeys paw with the blue background to show that on the outside it looks like a god’s blessing but really, it’s a curse. I chose the contradicting colors of red and white because they are the very contradicting colors and show how white is normal and red is a disorder.

Dot ME

my life in 30 words

I, been described many ways,
energetic,
gallant,
naming few,
Just like others, Pop is in my head,
In front of a screen for hours- days.
Toying in rugby since 6 makes me

distinctive from you.

1. Gallant this word means to be pride-full and fearless in danger. the main reason i chose this word is that I take massive pride in anything i do and my dad always stresses the fact that i am always fearless in anything. so by combining  them, you get gallant.

2. Toying this word means essentially messing around and is a more descriptive word than playing. the main reason i chose this word is because i don’t just love to play the sport i  love to mess about while playing.

3. Distinctive this word means having a characteristic that is unique to every on else. the main reason i put emphasis on this word is because  we are all different from one another and this is how i am different form everyone.
