I learned many things this year from my teachers.
Mary Lyon deserves a monument in Washington D.C. because she helped women get a better education. Mary is known as an American education activist who is remembered for her commitment of getting higher and better education for women.Mary opened an all female college 1834. This college allowed women to get an equal education to men's education. The college was called Wheaton Female Seminary, but is now named Wheaton College. She opened it in Norton, Massachusetts and it is still there to this day.
Since she was so committed, she impacted sex equality to this day. She made a major advancement in women's rights and education.
If how you act was how people saw you, how would people see you? Would they see a kind and caring person, or a untrustworthy person? The quote, "A tree is identified by its fruit" means how you act is how people see you in the world. If the tree is good, it's fruit will be good. If the tree is bad, it's fruit will be bad. How you act behind closed doors is how you will act in the real world. I apply this quote to my life understanding if I am kind and trustworthy people will see me as trustable person they can come and talk to. If I do rude things and act untrustworthy people will see me as a bad person. I try my best to act kind so I can get a positive image. I want people to see me as a person who they can trust and will listen to what they have to say. If people hear positive things about me they will think positive about me. If people hear negative things about me they will think negative about me.
Did Apple do the correct thing when refusing to let the FBI hack into iPhones? Apple was justified in refusing to let the FBI hack into iPhones.
Basic American rights will be violated if the FBI hacks into iPhones. According to Randall G. Holcombe author of Apple CEO was right to defend basics, “Basic American rights were at stake, and the purpose of law is to protect people’s rights. The Fourth Amendment guarantees people this right to privacy. Individuals have the right to possess information without having to share it with the government.” If the FBI can hack into iPhones, people's privacy will be violated. The Fourth Amendment guarantees people can possess information and they don’t have to show the government. People's rights will be at stake if the FBI hacks into iPhones. Everyone has a right to have their own privacy and they don’t have to share it with the government.
The FBI hacking into iPhones will not eliminate our problem with terrorism. “Our political leaders have been slow to heed those warnings, but now, hopefully, they are starting to realize that what could be World War III has already started. It will not end until we eliminate the tens of thousands of fanatics eager to perpetrate atrocities based on hoary 14th century religious decrees.” (Flora, 2016). Hacking into iPhones will not stop terrorism completely. Some terrorists may not have an Apple phone or may get rid of their iPhones. There are several other things we could do to help stop terrorism, such as expanding background checks and not allowing people who are on the terrorist watch list buy guns. Our president should be doing these things so also help stop terrorism.
The FBI should not be allowed to force Apple to ruin the value of the Apple brand. “The government has no right to force anybody to involuntarily provide it services.” (Holcombe, 2016). The FBI tried to make Apple let them hack into iPhones. The FBI should not be allowed to make companies help them so they can get personal information on people. When Apple refused to help the FBI, it helped keep value and loyalty to the Apple brand, so they could keep their customers happy. If Apple allowed the FBI to hack into iPhones they would lose the trust of their customers, and people may get rid of their iPhone to avoid being hacked.
Apple did the correct thing refusing to let the FBI hack into iPhones. Citizens rights will be violated if the FBI hacks into iPhones. Hacking iPhones will not completely end terrorism. The FBI should not be able to make companies give them personal information on people.

It’s origins date back as far as 200 B.C. when people in China created a dish of rice mixed with milk that was then frozen by being packed in snow. The Chinese King Tang of Shang is thought to have had over ninety “ice men” who mixed flour, camphor, and buffalo milk with ice.” Ice men are men that cut ice in early China. China used ice to build ice houses, cool foods, and made ice cream with it. The Chinese people were credited with the creation. Ice cream was first invented in 200 B.C. and it is currently 2017 A.D.

If being a celebrity is so great, why does it put so much stress on celebrities? Celebrities can’t do everyday things without being noticed and photographed. People who are famous may become extremely stressed, and they may turn to drugs and alcohol. I would not like to be famous because it puts a great amount of stress on people.
Being famous can bring a lot of stress, and that can lead to trouble. "If being a celebrity is so great, why are so many of them, well, kind of messed up? Take Justin Bieber. By age 16, he was cranking out chart-topping hits and earning millions of dollars on sold-out concert tours. Lately, however, it seems like the 22-year-old has been spending most of his time apologizing for his bad behavior." Justin Bieber has been arrested for drunk driving and was charged with vandalization. “Look at Shia LaBeouf. Once a star of hit movies like Transformers, LaBeouf is now known mostly for bizarre public meltdowns and struggles with drugs and alcohol.” People who are famous turn to drugs and alcohol to “relieve” the stress of being famous. The truth is drugs and alcohol don’t help with stress, and they can hurt your health bad. When using drugs, after one use you can become addicted to them.
Most people think being famous will make them happy because all of the amazing perks. People who become famous have lots of money and many high-class things. They get front row seats at fancy award shows and they get clothes from top designers. "Plus, she gets amazing perks, like free clothes from top designers, front-row seats at prestigious award shows, and trips around the world." People think money will make them truly happy, but money doesn’t make you truly happy. “According to a study at the University of Rochester in New York, true happiness derives from having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth, and connections to your community.” Even though you get amazing perks and lots of money, the happiness of being famous will fade away.
Most famous people can’t do everyday things without being noticed. "Famous people can't so much as walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed." Paparazzi invade celebrities personal space and can be extremely annoying. Celebrities can’t go out with friends without being noticed by fans and photographed. Celebrities also have to question if their friends like them just because they’re famous, or if they actually like them for the person that they are. “But according to Rockwell, it can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends. Stars have to wonder if their “friends” like them for who they are or for what they have.”
I would not like to be famous because it puts a great amount of stress on people. Celebrities can become stressed and that will hurt their mental health. Just because people get amazing perks doesn’t mean they’re happy. Paparazzi can be annoying and celebrities can’t do much without being noticed.
Over break I did a few exciting things with my family and had a fun time. I celebrated Christmas with my family and got to see my friends. We had a Christmas at four of my grandma and grandpa’s house. I got many things from them and I got most of what I wanted. I had fun hanging out and celebrating Christmas with my family. We played games and a great time overall.
For most of winter break I was sick and I felt awful. I began to feel sick the first day we had no school. My family and I assumed it was just a cold, so my mom just gave me medicine. I had a bad fever and my throat was extremely sore. When it had gotten worse and the medicine was no longer helping my mom took me to see a doctor. The doctor told us I had strep throat and gave me pills to help beat the sickness. It was hard for me to take the pills at first because they were so big. I slept a lot for the first few days of winter break and I had a weird sleeping schedule. One day I slept all day and stayed up all night. I normally fell asleep around 7:00 P.M. and I would wake up around 4:00 A.M.
Even though I was sick I still did many exciting things with my family and friends. We celebrated Christmas and had a great time. I got many of the things I wanted and afterwards we went to my grandmas house. I got many gifts and a gift card to Best Buy. One thing that we did over break was played against each other on an NBA game for the Playstation 4. I was the only one to beat my older brother and we had a great time hanging out. When I had gotten over most of my sickness I was able to go to Dana’s house. The first time I could have gone to her house I had to cancel because I was sick. We were finally able to exchange gifts and we had a great time. She got me a pair of socks and a necklace. Overall, it was a pretty good break and I wish it wouldn’t have gone by so fast.
