Paulo Dybala

Paulo Dybala, my favourite soccer player in the world. I watch the 23 year old player play soccer. I have never met Paulo Dybala but am hoping to since he has such a big influence on me. I always watch him play soccer and see how he is living his life. He was born in Argentina on November 15, 1993. The roots in his family are also from Poland, Italy and Argentina, but he decided to stay with the country where he was born. This is meaningful because I can watch him and learn lots of new stuff. I love to see how he does his Free Kicks, moves, runs and many more. He is a kind person and loves the beautiful game. By watching Paulo Dybala it affects me by seeing how good he is. It is also amazing that he can just own the pitch. (destroy everyone) He helps his family and he does not smoke. Watching Paulo Dybala play is letting my mind escape to somewhere I can enjoy, learn, be amazed and many more. He also donates blood. To me I find Paulo Dybala as not just my role model but I feel a connection when I watch him play soccer. If I see Paulo Dybala do a new trick, then I go outside and try it myself. The relationship that I have between him and myself is just me watching him and me just supporting him. I’d love to meet him in person one day but for now it is just me watching and learning and praying that I’ll meet him. And once I do, boy will I be happy.

Grade 7 (so far)

Grade 7, more than half way through school. Comparing grade 7 to grade 6, I love it! I have always loved school but the difference between grade 6 and grade 7 is when you hit grade 7 you have more opportunities and options. Middle school is a huge difference from junior school. I love juniour school and all but just middle school is a lot more independent.

This means you can choose what you want to do. Juniour school is just teachers are there to teach and then you also have teachers there that can help you even if you don’t need help. But when you get to middle school the teachers teach you and you listen. There are also teachers there that are there to help but you have to go ask for it.

Personally I love middle school a lot more than juniour school. But yes I still love juniour school. Right now my favourite subjects in school are P.E (obviously) Math, Science, Humanities, Art, Band Communication Skills and Choir. If you count recess as a subject then Recess is the top of the list. All the teachers are there to help and are amazing.

“Sugar Is Killing Us”

In Science we have been learning about how sugar is killing us. I’d like to answer three specific questions about sugar. 

What is one thing you already knew?

One thing that I already knew was if you had way too much sugar you would get diabetes. Getting diabetes from sugar is not the only way to get it. Some unfortunate people are born with it or are diagnosed with it for other reasons.

What is one thing you learned?

One thing that I learned was how if you had a lot of sugar in one day and kept that pattern going it would be hard for your body to digest. This is because every time you have sugar your body has to digest it. Over time if you kept up this pattern your body would shut down and this is also one way in which heart attacks are caused.

Based on your sugar consumption what is one thing you may want to consider changing after watching the video?

One thing that I would change about my sugar diet would be to count the grams of sugar I have each day. This would be good because then I can be mindful of how much sugar I have each day. Knowing how much sugar I eat every day will allow me to know my daily sugar intake. 
Here is a video where you can discover a few more facts about sugar.

City 20/20 reflection #1

In class right now we are doing a project called city 20/20. Now you make think 2020 the year but it is actually 20/20 means perfect vision. So the project we are doing is basically called a perfect city or City 20/20.

We have been assigned to small little groups and the groups are Affordable Housing, Food Production, Transportation, Waste management and Energy provision. Currently I am in Affordable Housing.

We got sent problems from the mayor of Victoria and these are the problems:

Food Production

 

  1.     What innovative partnerships and technologies could help us increase food production in the City?

 

  1.     The average age of farmers in BC is very high (55.7 years in 2011). How do we get young people in the City interested in farming as a career? How do we “grow new farmers” in the City?

 

  1.     If we want our region to produce and consume 25% of its food locally, what foods should we focus on? Which crops have the least ecological impact, are part of a healthy and balanced diet, and can be produced in our climate?

Housing:

 

  1.     How might we make housing in the community affordable to people in the second and third income quintiles (incomes ranging from $20,000 to $65,000 per year)?

 

  1.     How do ensure our community works for people at each end of the age spectrum – 2 year olds and 82 year olds?

Transportation:

 

  1. How do we double the amount of people that ride buses in 2 years?
  2. How do we triple the amount of people that commute to work by bike in 3 years?

 

Waste Management:

  1. What are the three most effective and affordable ways that I can change my lifestyle to reduce waste that goes to landfill?

 

Energy Provision

 

  1. How to get regular citizens involved in taking action on climate change?
  2. How could my family reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 30%, within 3 years (in transportation and building energy)?

*written by Mayor, Lisa Helps

My group is Housing and so my questions are

  1.     How might we make housing in the community affordable to people in the second and third income quintiles (incomes ranging from $20,000 to $65,000 per year)?
  1.     How do ensure our community works for people at each end of the age spectrum – 2 year olds and 82 year olds.

The main question we are working on in my group is the first one.

 

Is Fair Equal? 

The question I ask myself, “Is Fair Equal?” When we are talking about fair we are talking about Jack getting an apple and John getting an apple. Is that equal? Yes. 

But is that the way to learn? Is that the easy way to get through life? Yes Equal is much easier like how it is much easier to eat your favourite sweet or dessert rather then gross broccoli or gross egg plant.

But if you keep feeding yourself just that unhealthy sweet you will get used to it and just not grow to learn or in this case not grow to eat those healthy fruits and vegetables.

It is taking the easy way out… The Equal way. Yes.

Sometimes the best way to learn is to learn from what you did wrong and what you could of done next time. So in conclusion I think Fair is Not Equal. 

Because it is not the way to learn.

Plan International

For the past few weeks in Humanities we have been doing research on a poverty website. I choose a website named Plan International.

Click here to go to Plan International website.

Plan International focuses on helping giving money to people and making sure  that nobody is poor. Plan International has helped 170 developing countries and 81.5 MILLION kids. On the website rating app, Plan International got 4 out of 4 and an A.

 

Journey to Jo’Burg: A book review

In humanities we have been reading a book called Journey to Jo’burg.(Johannesburg) The Book is Here. There are 89 pages in the book. I recommend this book for grade 3 and up. The author’s name is Beverley Naidoo. On a scale of one to ten on this book rating I would give it a 5.5. This book takes place in South Africa.

This book demonstrates poverty and is showing some good lessons of how we should’ve gave as many rights to black people back then and we also need to be grateful.The Main Characters are:                                                                                                                                                    Naledi, Tiro, Dieno, Mma, Rra, Nono and  Mmangwane.
