My Battery Life

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

On my iPhone 5 the battery life dies in almost a hour when I am using it. Even when I don’t use it throughout the day the battery life gets lower and lower even though it is not in use. Apple is false advertising because they say the battery last a couple days if you are not using it. I don’t know how they got a couple of days when mine dies so fast. I just would like for Apple to actually tell their customers the actual truth.

Jelly Fish Robot Killer

Tuesday, October 29th, 2013

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/jellyfish-thrive-ocean-robots-shred-pieces/story?id=20507726&page=2

Recently, scientist have invented a robot to shred up a jelly fish into thousands of pieces. They created this because the jelly fish attacks cost South Korea 2.8 million dollars a year. The robot has a GPS and cameras so they can locate the jelly fish swarm. In my opinion, this robot can have a good or bad outcome. The jelly fish attacks might go down and South Korea would save money each year. Or the robot can cause the jelly fish to become endangered. I rather have South Korea lose money than lose another creature to human violence. Would the robots kill jelly fish each day or once a month?

Delaware mosques and school vandalized

Last week on Friday a mosque in Delaware was vandalized by people we do not know of yet. They broke the fence in pieces and made a cross in the front lawn. The FBI and local police are investigating the incident now. I think that this is so disrespectful because this is a holy place that people vandalized. To treat a religion with such disrespect is not funny or acceptable at all. In conclusion, I just hope that the people get caught and are rightfully punished for their actions. I would ask why would they do such a thing?

Again my special topic is about the best sneaker ever made. This topic is harder then it looks because everyone has a different opinion about sneaker styles. Where you live or even what race you are can depend on what sneaker you wear. I know this because I lived in New Jersey for one year and the sneaker styles were completely different even though it is right across the bridge. But what I decided to do is see what sneaker comes up the most frequently on each list that I look at.

Job Paychecks

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

I don’t understand why some jobs that are so easy pay so much and the hardest most stressful jobs pay so little. The jobs with the most labor and the most dangers like cops, firefighters, and construction workers don’t pay enough for their services. But managers at some department stores have a bigger pay check and they don’t do half of the things cops do. Why is the world setup like this?

Half Days

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

I am so glad that Boys Latin has half days every Wednesday because I hate staying until 4 o’clock everyday. When the week first starts up I look forward to going to school Wednesday because we get to get out of school early. Also it means that I only have two days left after the day is over. I think every school should have half days because it would help the students get through the weeks better.

Nanotechnology

In September the National Science Foundation gave a 1.5 million grant to help out a nano manufacturing and device integration. The technology will be used for nanobots in batteries and solar panels. This is good because this will help scientist come up with some new inventions to help the battery last longer and more Eco-friendly. In my opinion, this is good and bad because it helps the science community, but it also is a lot of money that could be used for a better cause.

Shut down effecting jobs

Monday, October 21st, 2013

As of recently a government has shut down due to politicians not agreeing with each other. This is effecting people and their jobs, even teenagers. For example, my cousin who participates in the Penn medicine program has lost his job because of the government shutdown. I think this is unacceptable because people need to provide for themselves and their family, without jobs they cannot do so. What makes it hard to find an agreement?

Best Jordan Ever

Friday, October 18th, 2013

http://www.complex.com/sneakers/2012/05/the-100-best-air-jordans-of-all-time/air-jordan-iii-blackcement

On the website/magazine Complex they composed a list of the 100 best Jordan’s ever made. The best Jordan that they said came out the black cement retro 3’s. I disagree with this list because there were sneakers that were hideous and never have been re-released before. I also disagree that the black cement 3’s are the best sneaker because I think that the Columbia retro 11’s are the best on that list. The question I have is what made them pick the retro 3’s?100jordansairjordan11columbia_234811100jordansairjordan3blackcement_234811

should there be jobs for students in school?

Thursday, October 17th, 2013

In school there could be many jobs for students. For example, hall monitor, school store worker, student janitor, and many other jobs. In my opinion I don’t think this is a good idea because students need to focus on their work the whole time in school. A job at school would just distract students from what they really go to school for. Even if there was a rule that said only honor students could have a job it still would be a negative response because after a while the students wouldn’t be as focused and their grades would gradually decrease. School is already like work so having another job would be too much. In all, jobs in school is not a good idea.
