Today we saw the movie the 11th hour. It is a movie about how the people ruin our environment and how everything at this planet are related. 
There were a lot of a scientist, psychologist and leaders for big environment companies telling about how the human being needs the nature. They also told a lot of how the world have developed since Ronald Reagan was the president of America. They also made it clear how fatal the consequences may be if we keep doing like we doing today.  At the end of the movie they turned all the sad stories and all the sad information into a positive way to do the changes. After the movie was ended you may sit there whit a hope and and commitment for your actions. 

The movie had a lot of pictures that really make you think about your actions. Even tough the movie contains a lot a strong images I'm not sure I can believe it or not. 
I believe that there is awful things happens all over the world. But I don't find it that realistic. Were are all these  photos derived from? Sometimes I think they are manipulated so they can use our conscience. When I see documentaries about things in this world that make you think about our actions, its easy to make me cry. They use beautiful and very sting images. All this make me sit down and think why nothings being done. When a whole world sitting in their house watching tons of poisoned gas just flies out in the air I'm supposed to breath in every day.  

All this is about money i believe. The human being is a selfish and egoistic thing. It do not think its that hard to just a close a company which do bad environmentally productions. 

About taking notes

While watching the movie our teacher told us to take notes. Our teacher Ann wanted us to do a 

  • How can we make good notes while watching a movie or a lecture?
We parted the movie in three parts. First we used pen and paper. The second we used our own computers to make our own notes. The last one was a public Google doc note paper  where 10 people shared their notes. 

I think several of this fit for me, depending on what I am going to listen to.  If you write it may be more easy to remember. A problem whit writing could be that it takes more time than writing on a computer. 
Writing on a computer may seems like the most easy, but as if the way to Facebook and other tempting websites get way more shorter. 
I would like to try to use more of public Google-docs. If you share it whit people you know writes good notes you can learn a lot from each other. It's also a wonderful opportunity to see a case or a problem from different view of point and became clear of something you didn't know in the first place. 

Do you have any view of points when it comes to how we trade our environment?
   I would loved to hear from you!

About blogging in class

  1. Write a small post on your blogs answering these questions:
  •  Do you think there is more pressure on how you perform/write when you use blogs instead of writing a paper for the teacher only?
  • Do you think the use of blogs reduces the difference between your work at school and your everyday life? 
I don't think its more pressure actually, but maybe more expectations because of our opportunities to use translate programs and programs that correct our spelling mistakes. When we get a assignment in the begging of the day, we have almost the whole day to answer it, and I think that make a good base to use a lot of time to write and use good language. I like to write blog posts instead of using books. I really like that we get a task and we have almost the whole day answer it. Then we get the opportunity to write good and use a lot of time in our english. We are also ought to write about something that interest us, and I think that is important to who much work we put in our blog.

It is way more easy to start the computer and write if we got homework. We also have a lot of information within reach and that makes us more international. Using a computer also means that the way to facebook and twitter is shorter that you think. 
Usually, in my class from lower high school, we are very focused at the english plan, and just follow the plan. When we write i blog, we may choose what we like and find something interesting to write about.

The US election 2012 - Obama vs. Romney

The US election 2012 is today. The election is always on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, it has always been like that. Erling, Julia and I would like to ask a few questions about election that is today. We would like to first write about both candidates and what they stand for, then compare their politics, the conclusion and what differences\changes will be if Romney wins.

Barack Hussein Obama II, american lawyer, first African American president of the US. He was born August 4th, 1961 in Honolulu. He represents the democratic party as the 44 president in the row.
The democratic party is more into the state and want to include all the people in the country. They also want to introduce a health reform and they are into including the people in the society.

Willard Mitt Romney was born in Detroit Mars 12th 1964. He his a American businessman. In the election 2012 
Mitt Romney represent the republican party. The republicans want the people to take care of them self and they are very conservative. They don't want to pay taxes because they don't want to give money to the government. They are against abortion, but they support the weapon law. 
It's always okay to compare the opponents when you're wondering who you want to support. As a group we would like to compare Obama's and Romney's politics.
Obama has approved waivers freeing states from the most onerous requirements of the Bush-era No Child Left Behind law with their agreement to improve how they prepare and evaluate students. Comparing to the Romney who
supported the federal accountability standards of No Child Left Behind law.
Heath care
Obama achieved landmark overhaul putting U.S. on path to universal coverage now that Supreme Court has upheld the law's mandate for almost everyone to obtain insurance.
On the other side we find Romney who promises to work for the repeal of the federal health care law modeled largely after his universal health care achievement in Massachusetts because he says states, not Washington, should drive policy on the uninsured.
The republican party stands for that issued directive in June that immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children be exempted from deportation and granted work permits if they apply, a step that could benefit 800,000 to 1.4 million. "It's a temporary measure that lets us focus our resources wisely while offering some justice to these young people."
According to Romney who want favors U.S.-Mexico border fence, opposes education benefits to undocumented immigrants. Opposes offering legal status to undocumented immigrants who attend college, but would do so for those who serve in the armed forces.
Obama supports abortion rights. Health care law requires contraceptives to be available for free for women enrolled in workplace health plans, including access to morning-after pill, which does not terminate a pregnancy but is considered tantamount to an abortion pill by some religious conservatives. On the other hand we find Romney who opposes abortion rights. Previously supported them. Says state law should guide abortion rights, and Roe v.
Would it be any differences if Mitt Romney win?
   *He wants to provide the health care.
   *Privates hospitals.
   *People have to take care of themselves.
   *More soliders worldwide.
   *Rich people get richer, poor people get poorer
