Star Wars: the Rise of Skywalker.

Image result for rise of skywalkerYesterday Auntie Fiona, Auntie Hazel, Uncle Colin and I went to see Star wars the rise of Skywalker. The Finale to the worldfamous program did not dissapoint. We were given the surprising Identity of Rey and I'm not sure anyone was ready for it to be honest. However I'm not spoiling, because that wouldn't be fair. We were introduced to new characters who might be key in giving us a new storyline in the star wars universe and learned the pasts of some other more well known characters. The emperor was as predictable as ever to be honest, he's too sharp to be fooled. The rebellion tried to fool him and he knew about it. I kinda wasn't surprised. But he still stayed as one of those characters you love to hate which is exactly my relationship with Emperor Palpatine. Rey can spend the rest of her life being happy, knowing who she is and I'm glad the franchise ended like this.
May the Force Be with you my fellow Jedi readers.

My first escape room!

Today I went to an escape room! It was called the heist. The whole idea was that we had to go into a room retireve a diamond and escape from said room. we started off really quick and then on the last second room we got stuck because we had to count the pearls on each broach but they were taken out of the jewelerry box they came from so the order was muddled up and we had to get some help from the lady in the TV. I really enjoyed it. The puzzles really got you to think on your feet, and you know what made it even better? There were lazerbeams! I felt a little bit like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible, crawling and lunging past the lazers. I reckon a way to makeit better would be to make the lazers a little more complex but still easy enough to get passed. I really liked getting passed every room and I did kinda feel a bit like a special agent/burglar.
It was a fun and witful experience i really enjoyed it and hope that I can do it again!

Christmas!

Yesterday we had christmas in Scotland. It was lovely. Fearne loved her presents and she was absolutely adorable! I got these awesome pants and a lovely art set as well as a coin purse, note book, and mirror from Japan that I really like. And i got some black and white checkered Vans but they were too big so we're going to get a smaller size we had turkey and trifle and our breakfast was delicious as well. Gran got a coffee maker and Granpa got some knives. They both got a thermos which is sweet! WE had a great day with the family and I had christams dinner with Gran Granpa and Auntie Fiona.

The European Union and what's going on with it.

Image result for the euToday me and Granpa where just conversing over breakfast then somehow we started talking about Politics and then one thing leaded to another and I found myself watching a documentary called the Brexit. It was all about what the European union is and what it does.
I tried to take notes but halfway through I was getting tired of pausing the video and playing it back and the notes that I had recorded got deleted maybe because I didn't save them? (I'm still trying to figure out my new phone) So i'll try recall things from memory.
The European union is a group of 28 countries unified, It's supposed to be a democracy. But first we must understand what a democracy is.
Democracy comes from ancient greek. Demos means the people. Democracy is supposed to be that the people choose who becomes the leader. The elected official is supposed to serve the people not dictate them. In return they get a little bit of the power and the people can take it away from him anytime. At least thats the ideology of it.
The European union is made up of seven main istitutions which include, the European union parliament, the council of the European union, the european union council and the european union comission, as well as other seemingly pointless institutions.
The comission is appointed by the government and the members of the EU aren't recognized by most of the public. Not much of europe recognise their own politicians. *cough*mygranpadoes*cough* and don't get me started in the parliament.
Members of Parliament don't get a say in laws. This means they cant: Propose legislation, oppose legislation or even appeal legislation. They basically have to agree on everything the unelected comission says, and they get payed more than they should.
That's right people are getting paid in the EU more than they should. There is literally a mall for the people who work in the EU. If someone loses a comercial job outside of the EU they'll go to the EU and they'll become "an elite". And then their prices go up because the public have to buy things from this crappy company who's prices are higher than the quality of their products. It's not fair.
And don't get me started on the regulations. I found out that there are around 454 regulations for towels you wanna know how stupid that is. I actully can't say what word I should use to describe it but it starts with an R and its in one the the black eyed peas most famous party songs. You know what makes it even more dumb. There are around 36 regulations for radiators. Radiators. 36 for radiators and 454 for towels. How did they make it like that. It's stupid. Just plain dumb. Now britain is leaving because they want freedom to trade with whatever countries they want and I dont disagree.
The European Union doesn't seem to be doing much to help Europes Economy and It'd be better if it didn't exist.

A great time at the Hunterian.

The Hunterian is a museum in Glasgow University. A university I want to go to when I grow up. When we walked in there was a model of the area around Glasgow University and a stone slab people had put into a fancy and elaborately decorated chair.
The Hunterian was full of very interesting things like body parts in jars, some diseased and some preserved in top notch health conditions. It also had stuffed siamese twin animals. I saw a deer head with giant antlers I think it might have been a prehistoric ancestor maybe, or a deer with some sort of condition that made it really big. It also had some ancient roman artifacts such as peices of stone carved with latin enscriptions, roman pillars, roman jewlerry and roman tools, it was all very cool since I really like ancient civilizations. There was a section with minerals as well as artifacts from around the world. It was a truly interesting exhibit. They even had some Maori figures and Taonga. Once we had finished that exibit we went up the stairs and then we saw the works of a man who was influential in modern medicine I cant remember his name but if you visit the hunterian its up the stairs to the left of the second part of the place.  I looked at inventions by Lord Kelvin and if i remember correctly i noted down something about a tetrakaihedron which is like a way to equally store cells I'm pretty sure but forgive me if i'm wrong. Actually google it and then comment down below what it is, if i'm right comment that too. Once we had finished the exhibits we went to see the cloisters which where rapped with little lights and it was magical.
I hope you have a wonderful day and I miss everyone down in New Zealand.

Meeting Fearne and going to the Rugby

On saturday I got to meet my little cousin Fearne (pronounced Fern).  She is adorable. When she first came into the house she cried a bit because she was sleeping in the car. But auntie hazel gave her a hug and it was all good. When she was passed over to Uncle Colin she was calm. Then I had an idea I'd give her my Teddy (yup I'm a teenager and I still have a Teddy you can never be too old to have a teddy) and she loved it. "Bamse" She said Auntie hazel explained that Bamse is the Danish word for Teddy. She's a gorgeous baby. Then Later on in the evening/afternoon I went with my gran to see the Rugby we were watching the Glasgow Warriors Verse Edinburgh to make a Long story short the Glasgow warriors won. (OOHHHH YEAAAAHHH!!!!!!)
I learned something new about scotland during the game. There is nothing like an angry scotsman at a rugby game with a ref they don't like. But it was really fun and I got a cap that i get to bring home.

Where exactly am I?

You all know I'm in Scotland. But where exactly am I?
Allers Farm Kennels LTD! In East Kilbride on the Outskirts of High Blantyre. It's My Granpa's Business. He takes in Cats and Dogs looks after them for a while and makes sure their as good as when they came in when they go back to there owners. Theres a well and Beautiful countryside. It's winter so the trees have no leaves and it makes the woods look like something out of a fantas movie. The countryside is beautiful with vast green fields and Magnificently vast Lochs (Lakes). Scotland is probably one of the most Beautiful countries in the world.
The Business has one Cattery and two Kennels so their is a lot of barking in the morning. it truly is such a beautiful place.
Image result for scottish sausageIt's amazing how the community differs from ours back in Auckland. There's a fishman who comes over every friday to sell fish and we go to the bakery to get bread! Nowadays we go to a fish shop and we only get things like pastries and cakes and kebabs at the dairy. The breakfast sausages are rectangular and if you go outside in the winter for like a few minutes you fingers already start to turn pink whereas my fingers aren't like that in New Zealand winter. The houses walls and licence plates are different too! Everything is so different. But not so different as to give me culture shock. There is a castle right outside of blantyre and oh the trees! There are so, many, Trees In Glasgow they have a big crane that I cant remember the name of and everything is woderful here.
Wow.
I got really passionate there. But seriously Scotland is a wonderful place. Come visit it sometime.
Have a happy holiday.

And some kids fly on a plane by themselves with no one to help you but the airport staff.
And by some kids I mean ME!
OH YEAH! I went on a plane by myself to scotland. I Went on the Emirates flight. I landed in Dubai from Auckland and then boarded another plane to get to glasgow and scotland.
When I arrived a lady took me to get my luggage and sort everything out. Then I saw my Gran and Granpa in the pick up area. It's quite chilly here I think it's around nine degrees. Which is pretty cold. It hasn't snowed yet but i'm wishing for a white christmas. Fingers crossed!
I'm going to meet my Baby Cousin and all of my extended scottish family for christmas. It's going to be awesome.
Okay. Because of the flight l'm a bit Jetlagged so i'm going to sleep now.

The Sniper



Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the presentation, and put it into my reading folder. I then read the text. I was given a list of words that were, new to all of the members of the class, and we had to find the definition. On top of that we had to answer questions about the book. We were mainly thinking about language features and which words the author uses. I then posted it onto my blog with Title a Walt, Labels and a Task Description.

DMIC Maths Week 5

Walt: Take risks to share our mathematical thinking.


Task Description: For this task I went down to the mat with my DMIC groups. I then discussed the problem with my group and teacher. Once I had finished that I went to my desk ad finished this presentation that helped me reflect on my DMIC maths work.

How Chromosomes DNA and Genes connected?

How are DNA Chromosomes and Genes connected?

Your body is made of around hundreds of thousands of cells. Cells are like little factories in our bodies. Inside the nucleus is the DNA that makes us who we are.
DNA is in the chromosomes, the chromosomes are in the nucleus.
Humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes, each chromosome contains different information about the genes.
Each ladder of DNA are made of four protein bases A,G,C,T, all humans have these bases but every human has their own unique pattern or code of bases.
Nucleotide Bases which include these 4 proteins (A,G,C,T) form one ladder of DNA, they are always in pairs, T fits with A and C fits with G.
When a sequence of three pairs of protein come together they make a codon which is like a word, 3 our thousands of words create a chapter which is a gene, you can look at the chromosome like a book because a group of genes creates a chromosome. All our chromosomes together are like a book series.

So in summary Chromosomes are made up of smaller units called genes, genes are made of codons, codons are made of nucleotide bases.

Task Description: For this task my class sat down at the tables and took notes on DNA, Genes, and Chromosomes. It was also to prepare us for highschool. These are my notes.

Labeling the Parts of a Cell

Walt: Label the different parts of the cell through an animation.

Task Description: This movie was all about teaching you the different parts of the cell and what they do. When I started I made a centre stack on hyperstudio, This stack would be the one that I put all my other movies into. Then I made a stack for each organelle and recorded that stack to make a movie. Once I had finished making the movies on the little stack I recorded that one centre stacks with all of the movies inside of it. Once I had finally finished the movie I posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, Labels and a Title.

Hypothesizing with onion cells.

Group: Hinerangi, Jahzara, and I

Aim: see onion cells on a microscope

Hypothesis: I reckon at 100X magnification we’ll be able to see the onion cells.

Equipment:

Microscope
onion
slide
cover slip
Tweezers
Blue dye

Method: We started with the slide. Then we pulled a thin layer of skin off of an onion with tweezers. We placed the onion skin onto the slide then put some saline onto it so that the blue stain would spread easily. Then we gently placed the cover slip onto the onion skin.

Observation: On the 10x microscope we saw the cells and they looked something like this.
On the 40x magnification we saw it a bit more zoomed in but there wasnt that much difference.

Then on the 100x magnification we could only see purple from the stain.

Conclusion: My hypothesis was wrong and we saw the onion cell in 10x magnification, then we saw it in 40x but we didn’t see it on 100x magnification.

What makes a Good Person?

Are you a good person? How can you tell? There’s got to be some things that make people good. So what are they. In this essay I will label key characteristics that create a good person.

Respect. Everyone likes someone who knows to be respectful to others. Respect is something everyone, no matter what gender race or upbringing, deserves. You’re ability to recognise that makes you a good person.

Humility. Being humble is something that people need to do more these days. Humility gives us the ability to share our help without showing disregard to another person’s needs. For example: if someone is good at math and they are helping other people they will help the person without saying how simple they think it is.

Compassion. If you sympathise with other people you’re more likely to help them and you’ll find yourself helping people more. Getting into the habit of it will create a new way for you to get a good attitude about the way you are impacting other people’s lives. Making your life live to its utmost potential.

If you take these qualities and put them into your daily life. You will mature as a person and find the ability to make better decisions. It won’t be easy but you will be a good person. If we gather these qualities as a species, we can make the world a better place

Making a Point




Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the presentation and put it into my Writing Folder. I then gave advice to whoever was writing the paragraphs on the slides, as well as rewrting some paragraphs and making conclusions that connect to the wider world. I then posted it onto my blog.

Looking at Cheek cells

Today we decided to look at dead cheek cells. I was in a group with Paikea and Amelia. The first thing we had to do was get our slide and put our initials on it so we would know who's was who's. Once we had done that I gently scraped the sides of my mouth. Then I rubbed my saliva onto the slide. A drop sodium chloride so the cells would spread out and some stain so its easier to see. We drew the cells on green paper because its apart of observing things. We noticed that we could still see the organelles insinde of the Cells as we moved up.

How to be a good son/daughter?

Walt: Write engaging introductions

Are you a good son or daughter? Some kids aren’t sure. This essay will give you some helpful tips on how to be a good son or daughter.

Listen. One thing parents hate is when their kid doesn’t listen to them, and that doesn’t just mean hearing. Listening is when you look at your parents when they talk and actually process what they’re saying. Then once you’ve processed what they’ve said actually go and do it.

Help around. Parents love it when they’re kids are helpful around the house. Especially when you do it without being asked. Try little things, like washing the dishes or even just bringing in the groceries and it’ll make things a lot easier for your parents. Helping around truly has its advantages.

Be thankful. Your parents do a lot for you. They feed you, clothe you, put a roof over your heads. That’s just a tiny portion of how much love your parents put into you. So say thank you and show it through your actions. Maybe even give your parents a massage when they come home from work, or give them breakfast in bed in the morning. Your parents want to feel loved and appreciated too.

I’m sure these three tips will definitely make your parents happier with you. Your actions reflect your thoughts. When your parents will see that your thinking about them and how they feel, they’ll be extremely happy with you.

Task Description: For this task I made a new doc in my writing folder. Before actually writing I brainstormed ideas for the body paragraphs. Once I finished writing my essay I posted it onto my blog with a Walt, a Task Description, a Title, and Labels.

Should we have school uniforms?

School uniforms are something in almost every primary and secondary school in New Zealand. This has become a strong source of debate. Uniforms are the better choice because they let kids kick their financial background out of the door, gives students a better grasp on smart clothing choices, and keeps kids free from peer pressure.

Uniforms bring people of all different financial backgrounds into one group. The “rich kids” are bound to have expensive clothes, the “poor kids” are bound to have things like hand-me-downs, op shop clothes and other things. If you have a uniform the kids are all wearing the same thing and they can’t tell which is which. It puts the students on an even pedestal and no one is better than the other. This is what we want in modern society and if schools do this it brings the same attitude outside of school.

Uniforms are really smart looking. They make children seem like they know how to dress in a professional sense. This prepares them for the future. Especially if they want to take on professional jobs in the future. It gives students a glimpse into what they should look like so they do not humiliate themselves. We don’t want to humiliate our kids do we?

Uniforms also shield kids from peer pressure. Some kid could’ve just gotten the latest gucci hoodie and then everyone gets one, then there’s the kids who can’t afford a gucci hoodie and they feel left out. Peer pressure is a pretty common thing and students can get really depressed because of it. Uniforms prevent this, because they are all the same.

To conclude uniforms are the best form of clothing for schools. They provide an air of professionalism and make the students feel equal. Sure they may be expensive and a little bit uncomfortable at times but it is worth it. All schools should have uniforms because they make the schools a better place.

ANGLES!!

Walt: Justify our maths thinking.

Task Description: For this task I made a copy of a presentation and put it into my maths folder. I then answered all the questions on the slides. Once the slides were finished I posted it onto my blog.

Animal testing

Walt: Use correct paragraph structure
What is animal testing? Animal testing is the act of taking animals and using them to test things that may or may not affect humans. Typically this is carried out to find cures for diseases or product testing. The opinions on animal testing vary from person to person. However, animal testing is still something we do to this day. And it needs to stop.

The animals that scientists typically use vary from species to species. It is often lab-grown mice, however, cats, dogs, hamsters, farm animals, guinea pigs, and even nonhuman primates (Gorillas, monkey, etc) are also used. Primates. They test on our cousins. The cousins we work so hard to keep alive. How would they feel?

Some animal testing is even pointless. People are just doing the same tests again and again. All to gain money. Money that they already have lots of . They test over and over again because of competition and money, they want to find their own results instead of using those found by a different company. They slowly make progress repeating a test over and over again without any results and then move on to the next test, repeating this slow agonising process.

We also test make up products on animals. A lot of new makeup products with new ingredients get tested on animals like bunnies or guinea pigs. They make new dangerous products when they already have lots of other safe makeup products. They don't need all these new products when we already have so many and we should instead reuse the ingredients that have already been proven safe.

Animal testing is inhumane. People may see it as a way to solve problems but in reality, we just add more problems. Try to minimize the encouragement of animal testing. Use animal testing free products and trust more reliable labels. Let’s make this world animal cruelty free.

Task Description: For this task I made a new doc and put it into my writing folder. I wrote my five paragraph essay and then, checked for spelling and grammar mistakes. I posted it onto my blog with a Walt, Task Description, Labels, and a Title.

Planting a tree!

Today Mum, Kauri, Toran, Whakairo, and I planted a tree. Specifically a griselinia tree. I put it in the ground while mum digged the whole in the earth. The boys watched. The reason we went and planted a tree is because we want to save the world one tree at a time.
Hookey helped to of course!
You no doubt have heard of the Amazon rain forest and my mum was very passionate about it. So she bought a tree sapling at the warehouse. We planted it in mums paddock and we cant wait to see it grow into a beautiful tree.

KPMG trip

Today the extension group and a few selected students went to one of their termly trips to KPMG. This KPMG trip was based on ecology. First we had a talk by Tonkin and Taylor which is an organisation, that focuses on ecology. They work on sustaining the connections between the environment and the creatures in that environment.
Then we had a talk at sustainable coastlines and it was really interesting. Sustainable coastlines was all about reducing the pollution that we make to keep our coastlines and waterways beautiful and healthy.
Then we returned to the KPMG building and had lunch. Then we did some activities that were about sustaining a certain maori god's domain.

Riverhead Forest Trail Run

Today I went to Riverhead with Jayne, Kauri and Roman. You don't need me to tell you why but i'll tell you anyway. We went there to do a trail run that's a part of the Xterra Macpac trail run series. It was slippery and muddy and beautiful. There was one part where there was actually a line of people waiting to climb this one extremely slippery and steep hill made of clay. It was a very tough challenge. But the whole thing was really muddy and slippery. I even fell on my butt a few times. The run was a bit slow at times because I did my best trying to not slip in the giant puddles of gloppy mud.

This is a simple picture of how muddy I got. After the run I had three free sausages for lunch and it was totally worth it.

Do aliens exist?

Aliens are a common subject in the entertainment department, and there has been a considerable amount of interest in the idea that we are not alone in the universe. They’ve been in blockbuster movies, and popular posts in the media. But do they actually exist?
The universe is huge. You can’t even begin to imagine how massive it is. There are one hundred billion galaxies in the universe and those galaxies have thousands of stars inside of them, and those stars will most likely carry a solar system of exoplanets. One of those exoplanets in one of those solar systems is bound to be in a goldilocks zone and have life.
Some species on earth have amazing adaptations to help them in extreme conditions. What’s more extreme than another planet? Like Europa One of jupiter's moons, has water and that’s essential for life . After all the first reproductive species on earth evolved in the water. So it’s possible that there could be life on Europa even though it’s so far away from the goldilocks zone.
Why is the government investing in finding Aliens? The government could have enough evidence to prove that aliens do exist. Otherwise they would be blowing so much money that goes into finding these extraterrestrial beings.
So there is my evidence to conclude the fact that extraterrestrial life does exist.  Also area 51.

What is science?



Task Description: For this task I made a copy of the presentation and filed it into my reading folder. I then read the required texts for the first 2 slides and finished the questions on said 2 slides. I then watched the Charles Darwin video and wrote about him. I then watched the Rachel Carson video and wrote about her. I then posted the presentation onto my blog and made sure it was published to a high standard.

The Tree of Life

This is the tree of life. In 1835 Charles Darwin figured this out by looking at different animals that look similar by seeing this he realised that everything is connected somehow. Animals change over millions of years and their changes help them survive in their environment. This definitely opened my eyes to the idea of everything being related. It's a very interesting concept and I must applaud it.

Braces

On Monday the 15th of July 2019 I finally got my braces. But along with the braces came a whole lot of restrictions when it comes to eating and a great expansion of oral hygiene. For example I'm not allowed to eat:

  • Hard Foods: Nuts, Pretzels, Hard Sweets, and Ice... Especially Ice.
  • Chewy Foods: Toffee, Bagels, Caramel, Tough meat, Gumies, Liqourice,
  • Foods you have to bite into: Apples, Corn on the cob, Carrots
  • Chewing on hard things like pencils pens or nails will also damage the braces. Damaged braces will make the treatment longer.
And added onto my oral hygiene I have to: #
  • Floss in between the braces gums and teeth.
  • Chew on these pink tablets that'll show me where any plaque is.
  • Put wax on any braces that are hurting the inside of my mouth.
  • Brush my teeth in round circular motions and do so very slowly.
  • Use mouthwash
  • Brush my tongue
I know that's a long list. Here are some photos of the whole proccess and what it looks like.




What do I know about Scientists?

Image result for neil degrasse tysonScientists probably have the most stereotypical expectations in our modern day society. But they aren't actually what they seem. I mean look at Neil deGrasse Tyson. If you look at him and don't know who he is. He looks like a normal person.

Scientists study the things around us and how they work. They don't Mix potions together and then test them on themselves. They test chemical reactions and look in microscopes to see the smallest things in the world. They don't Harness the suns power to make an ultimate death ray.

Scientists work to find understanding of the world around us and the things inside us. They are not makers of destruction. They are finders of Solutions.
