Pelican not a Pelican’t

 

 

My biggest success was obviously finishing the robot that my partner and I planned. We were able manage the coding and plugging the wires on to the Arduino. When we were done with the coding, we had to stick to pieces on the side of the cardboard. But overall I am very proud of my self and my partner Tucker.

The Low and High

Discrimination leads to rebellion. The French Revolution was a violent and a destructive revolution. The Lacemaker and the Princess by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley is a historical novel that takes place during the revolution. So it was in the book. The overall story was that a princess who was in the higher class met a lacemaker which was low in class. These two characters had a completely different life structure. As a family of King Louis XVI, the princess lived a luxurious life. On the other hand, the lacemaker had a harsh life trying her best to at least eat something.  While the lacemaker, Isabelle was trying to convey the lace that she made to the princess, she was caught up and was squished in a crowd of people. But the person that finds her lying injured was a person that was able to keep everyone in the crowd to silent. And Isabelle realizes something strange. However, at the end she realizes that that person was the queen, Marie Antoinette. The Queen eventually adopts Isabelle and officially calls her daughter.

 

But when Isabelle starts a completely new life it was tougher than she thought. “Can you bear something to do with me now? Is your head better enough?” (Bradley, 69) It is a fact that and has to admit that she was a third estate citizen and now she is noticed as a noble. And so, discrimination in her family was not simple. People thought she wasn’t smart enough to play with them. They thought her head was not enough for them. And soon asks, “Can you even play chess?” (69) This quote is said right after the first quote. Chess is a game where only educated people was able to play. But by asking this, it shows that she was treated unequally and was discriminated of her knowledge by comparing them and to her. “She can’t talk, her hands are working well. Nor her brain, I think. She’ll twist that piece of thread all day long.” (73) This is a similar quote to the previous two. However, this quote emphasizes the discriminations. Readers are now sure of the life of Isabelle with this quote. Her job was a lacemaker but when she makes laces people in the house are making fun of her. Making her stupid. Surmounting her. Isabelle represented the third estate in the revolution. She was fed all the demeanors that the nobles made.

Life in Europa?

Claim: NASA’s next project should be exploring the Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter.

Evidence: NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has shown that they have seen some water plume. In 1997, NASA’s Galileo spacecraft flew by Europa to take pictures and collect information. And it had been seen that Earth might not be the only planet with water. NASA also  saw the possibility of warm water under the frozen cold water. NASA. When the plumes erupt like geysers out of the ground, NASA is wishing that they could get samples of the water to find and see possibilities of life in Europa.

Reasoning: Water is the number 1 key of having life. And since it has been proven by NASA that Europa might have a chance of liquid, NASA should focus their experiment and make a voyage to Europa.

Sad Life

Reading the book Biodiversity in Coral Reefs, I had learned many lesson and new stuff. And the most surprising fact was that Coral Reefs had life, they were just like us. They digest food and have a stomach too. Well the conversation above is giving evidence and what they eat. I tried to pit picture evidence but I didn’t know how to that in this website so I didn’t.

The Pale Blue Dot

In my opinion, the Pale Blue Dot has inspired me and impacted more than the Hubble Deep Field. The Pale Blue Dot showed how small we are. All the people we love people we know and all the people we met in out lives lived in the that small dot. We think we are so influential. We think we are the best. Just imagine all the blood people spilled so in the glory they can be the king of that small dot not even a  pixel in a computer. Billions of lives sacrificed just to do so. Just to make the pale  blue dot in to a red bloody marble. On the other hand the Hubble Deep Field only had pictures about the further universe not really talking how egotistical and how brutal we were.

IS FACE EVERYTHING?

What would it feel like to be Auggie? It would probably feel terrible, more than you think. There are many themes in the book Wonder, written by R.J. Palacio. But today I would like to focus on characterization. Auggie had many surgeries just on his face and because of that Auggie’s facial deformity was the issue to the others. Auggie faces discrimination from many other “ordinary” kids. Before he first goes to school in 5th grade, he was home schooled and very well educated. However, bullies in that school started to go against him and treat him as an alien. But, when Jack sees Auggie alone, he feels bad for him and starts to know more about each other.

 

Auggie’s facial deformity was the issue to the other “ordinary” people in school. “Sometimes you don’t have to mean to hurt someone to hurt someone.” This shows the emotion Auggie is having right now of everyone treating him bad. In the quote it says that nice words worth nothing. You just do it. Auggie feels like no one ever says good thing to him. As a person who looks perfectly fine, I do not know How it feels like to be like Auggie. However, I do know how he feels when everyone bullies him. Because I have been like him too.

 

Friendship makes life way much easier. I could say that Jack Will was the first person that gave out a hand to Auggie when he was getting bullied. And because of Jack Will, Auggie finds confidence on most of the things he does and eventually gets an award at the end. “Funny how sometimes you worry a lot about and turns out to be nothing.” This is a quote that Jack have made to Auggie to lift his confidence. Julian which was Jack’s friend now became enemies, just to be friends and to protect Auggie. I believe this is a true friend. He sacrifices him to save and lift one else up.

 

In conclusion I would like to sum up the story. Because of numerous surgery and his facial deformity, Auggie was bullied which made school life tough. However, when the first friend came to him, he was able to express himself and find confidence due to that one person. I would rate it 4 out of 5 since it let us learn many lessons and let the readers be able to know how a person that gets bullies feels like.
