Google It. Read or leave ?

The book “Google It: A History of Google” written by Anna Crowley Redding, is a book is about how Larry Page and Sergey Brin developed the idea of google during a research project they worked on. It talks about how they started off stealing, borrowing, and even begging for parts to get a server, to growing their business so big that they had to either drop out of school or continue working. This book mainly focuses on the journey Larry and Sergey took to develop and perfect google. The main theme of this book is to never give up and ambiguous ideas would eventually become reality. The main reason for you to read this book is if you want to understand the basics and how Google was developed made and perfected and eventually used by millions daily. The 2nd reason to read this book if you want to understand the road people need to take to eventually achieve victory.  After reading this book I learned that how Google was developed from scratch.

The Boxer Rebellion, good rep or bad ?

Should the boxers receive a terrible reputation? From my viewpoint, the fighters do not deserve to get a bad reputation, which can be convincing with the reasons as following. First, we should focus heavily on the fact that the Boxers only started to act violently and begin their campaign after. The German ambassador, Von Ketteler, had decided to execute innocent civilians. It can be explained that the Boxers had Peaceful protests by just standing in front of markets without blocking or annoying anyone; however, they made locals and some foreigners grow agitated. This does not mean that their actions are unjustified. They only started to rebel and burn down churches when innocent civilians were captured and killed. On top of them, another very convincing point is that the Boxers could have harmed the people in the Legations however they chose not to launch an attack and everyone was later saved To be more specific, during the 55-day siege the Boxers had completely surrounded the allegations however an attack was never launched meaning that even though the boxers could overrun the legation with seer power in numbers they chouse not to engage and did not give more deaths to the war.
Owing to these explanations, it can fully support that the boxers do not deserve a bad reputation


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Monkeys Paw CER paragraph

The Monkey’s Paw CER paragraph

In this paragraph, I will try to convince you that the old couple, Mrs. White and Mr. White, care a lot about their son in the short story The Monkey’s Paw, written by W.W. Jacobs.

Mrs. White and Mr. White care very much about their son and will do anything for him, Clearly seen close to the short story’s end.  “‘Oh, thank God, thank God for that!’” (Jacob 4) said Mrs. White after the Mysterious man announced that their son was no longer in pain; however, they were soon to catch on to what the man actually meant by that he was not in pain, and was soon followed “ She caught her breath and put her trembling hand on her husband’s. There was a long silence.” (Jacob 4). Everything above shows that Mrs. White really cares about her son since she was relived after she heard the man say that her son was not in pain, and as soon as she understood, she lost her breath and had to catch it, and Mr. White also was stunned, and nothing could be heard. “‘You are afraid of your own son. Let me go. I am coming, Herbert, I am coming!”(Jacob 5) said Mrs. White, after a mysterious knock was heard on the old couple’s door. Mr. and Mrs. White could have wished for money and wealth and anything, but since they choose to wish to relive their son, this means they truly love their son and do not want to give him up to choose to give up one wish which could be getting thousands of dollars“‘You are afraid of your own son. Let me go. I am coming, Herbert, I am coming!”(Jacob 5) Mrs. White, after a mysterious knock, was heard on the old couple’s door. They had used the Paw to wish for their son to be back again. The obvious answer was that the knock was from their son. However, Mr. White has learned from his first wish of wanting 200 pounds that all wishes will come with sacrifice, and it was his son’s death, which then leads to the making of the 2nd wish. 

Roger that Roger

           The found Poem is a poem that I made from the words of a short story Thank You, M’am by Langston Hughes. The internal conflict happened after the main character  Roger got caught attempting to steal

l Mrs. Jones’s purse, and Mrs. Jones takes him home to “teach him a lesson” Mrs. Jones then makes the daring decision of The main theme would probably be the power of compassion, she has every right to turn Roger into the authorities, But she takes him home after hearing his intentions and some of his family backgrounds, she decides to give him her trust, this is when Roger has to make the decision to either bolt out of the house and take the purse with him to get the money, or to stay and listen to her and get nothing in return, however, he makes the decision of not running away and in return, he earns 10 dollars for the shoes that he wanted and he also got taught a valuable lesson. I think the interaction with Mrs. Jones from her wanting to kill him to her calling him her son, really changed Roger.

Robotics / Coding (Animal Reflection)

A. What are you most proud of?

I am most proud of the design of the Giraffe that I made along with the video since I spent time and effort on both of the topics, even though the giraffe was inspired by someone else’s and I had to look up a ton of pictures of pixilated giraffes.

B. What is something you would change if you did this again? (besides being at school with all the resources)

I might change the fact that I should make the giraffe first then I should make the video or just record everything together since I made it piece by piece and recorded 1 part by 1 part.

C. What have you learned about yourself through this project?

i am good at tinkercard and I am really good at making videos
