About My Topic

My topic is about pit bull abuse. This issue interests me because I own a pit bull and many people abuse pit bulls. I want people to learn pit bulls are not mean and aggressive dogs because many people think pit bulls are, but they are just like any other dog and their behavior depends on how you treat them. This issue needs to be addressed because in some places they are thinking about banning pit bulls.

March of the Penguins

1.Some of the challenges the penguins had to overcome were staying warm and not getting killed by any predators.
2.Their habitat changes their livelihood because of the weather how it is cold.
3.They need to adapt to the brutal weathers by making themselves full of fur.
4.There is a long period of time without any sunlight that affects the climate by making it more cold because at night that is when it is night time.

gamers solve scientific problems

How did gamer's use the computer GameFoldit to solve the protein folding mystery? 
The gamer's used the computer to solve puzzles to try and help find the foldit.
Who can particpate in this problem solving and be a player in Foldit
Anyone and they don't have to have a background .
What can critical thinking do for science? 
If you could solve a mystery through gaming for any kind of disease or illness in the world, what would it be? 

I would make one on cancer because many people die from cancer and also because doctors try so hard to find a cure but they cant.

2 single story 2011

                                   "Danger of a single story" 
                                      Chimamanda Adichie

  1. What does it mean to have a 'single story' about a place or community?                                                                                                                                                  Is when you judge a place or community when you have never seen it.
  2. Describe a single story you have heard told about your community. What is missing from that story? How could people learn more about that community?                                                                                   I once thought that east Austin was a bad place, but as we started doing service learning projects i figured that it wasn't, i think people can learn more about a community if they do research or really get to know that place 
  1. How could a game let players experience many stories about a place or community?                                                                   If the game has true facts about the community.

The lightning thief chapter 1-2

The boring book we are reading is the lightning thief by percy jackson.In the first chapter it talked about his self and how he is dyslexix.It also talks about his friend Grover and how he is really hairy. But the main idea of the first chapter was when they went on a field trip and percy killed his insane teacher with a sword.The second chapter was about these two old ladies knitting these huge pair of sox and they clip the string.

My experience working by myself and in a team stunk.It stunk because i dont know anything and my game stunk and i didnt finish i wasnt even almost finished.I have no idea what I did that i was proud of, i guess theres one thing like when i made my monkey move.I learned im not good at making games and im not good at working overall.I learned about my topic that theres deforestation in brazil.I also learned in globaloria all of these different codes.All i learned in globaloria is how to draw and covert stuff into symbols and i barely know how to put stuff on the wiki.I kinda liked globaloria.The only thing i liked the modt about globaloria was being in flash.

bloons tower deffense

The game does not have a timer but has away to keep score instead of keeping score you earn money to buy different items.I think the game developers developed this game by figuring out different codes and i think they liked popping balloons.I think i will do this by figuring out how to make objects shoot on their own.the arrow keys tutorials will help also the drag and drop to drag and drop the objects.i liked the game because it was entertaining.

Paper Prototype

My paper proto type hasn't helped me plan my game. It hasn't helped me because i haven't added anything new.I think sometime it might help me later on.I think making the paper proto type was very challenging and making the actual game will be even more challenging. Making the paper prototype was very challenging because you had to draw the pictured and you only had like a week to do it.

Mad Hot Ballroom

The movie we finished watching was mad hot ballroom. I think the main message of the film was to go for your goals.And if you find something that your good at live up to your dreams. Also I think the theme was also to get people to follow their dreams and not just stick to dancing unless you like that much.

Tuesday, February 15, 2011


our subject is bullying but our subject about bullying is how much effect bullying has on people.

winter break

My winter break was cool because for Christmas i got a lab top,a dog, and a remote control helicopter.It was also awesome because i got to get away from the teachers and school work it was also not good because we still had to do math work and reading work.The math homework i didn't get because over the break i was texting my friend and in his group they didn't get any homework from her and i think she is unfair but other than that it was awesome.On new years eve we popped a lot of fire works i also almost blew off my finger.
