Mexico

Mexico. What do you think of. Bright colours, Delicious food or Amazing festivals.

Now Australia what do you think of when someone mentions it. BBQ s, Hot Summer Days or strong Aussie accents well already you can tell they are very different to each other.

But… They are also really similar regarding

  • deserts
  • famous for the surf and beautiful beaches
  • both christian dominated societies
  • coastlines

If I lived in Mexico I think I would most enjoy having different cultural dishes every night for dinner, But I think I would find Inequality the hardest because the richest man in Mexico, Carlos Slim, has built its empire in the country, there are also more than 50 million people living in moderate and extreme poverty.

The flag has Green, White and Red single stripes on it, all having meaningful messages behind the colours. Green is Hope, White is Unity and Red id the blood of Heroes. These meanings are not enforced by Law so they may keep changing. The coat of arms in the middle of the white stripe is an Eagle eating a rattle snake, perched on the Nopal (Prickly Pear) cactus. Underneath is a Garland.

I really want to go to Mexico one day. Especially at the end of October. Why? Day of the Dead! This is a wonderful traditional celebration that is celebrated by mostly Mexican people. They believe that the gates of heaven are opened at 12:00 am on October 31st, and the spirits of all deseased children are allowed to reunite with their family. On the 2nd of November the adults can then come down and enjoy the festivities prepared for them.

BTW If you click on the images it will make them easier to see.

I hope you liked it.😊😊😊

#Production
Today I filmed my Passion project and it was fun, I was mostly filming with my sisters and it was a very enjoyable experience. We filmed in all different places such as the river (which is just down the street), at our house and at various places in between. One of my favourite shots is a panning shot of the sky and the clouds look cool. I roughly edited it and it looked good but Mum suggested some pictures of memories so she sent me some on my phone and I am importing them onto my computer. I am editing on moviemaker because adobe spark was taking forever to load a 5-second video and I find premier pro way too hard to use. For my music I am using Glorious by Macklemore and Skylar Grey.

Adobe

Today in inquiry Tim Kitchen the adobe educator came in and gave us some tips on how to use some adobe programs such as; Character animator and adobe spark. I loved adobe spark and I think I am going to use it to edit my Passion Project because I feel like it would be a lot easier than premier pro because it is much less complicated. today I learned that you can use Adobe Photo shop to 3D print by simply designing something that you would like to have in real life like a decoration or action figure and basically you get it but it isn’t that easy. If you are thinking about printing something I recommend some practise and watch a few YouTube clips to see how its done. If you do so you could produce something really cool like the following pictures.

I especially like the person one because it looks really realistic and one idea of my own if I ever had a chance to make one of these I think it would be cool to make a Phone case.


Beauty and the beast usborne young reading retold by Louie Stowell

“I took a rose from the garden of a monstrous beast and he is sworn to kill me…” When Belle reads this letter from her father, she bravely rides to thee Beast’s enchanted castle in his place. This Beast is truly terrifying, but, as Belle soon realises, nothing is quite as it seems.

A love story retold for children growing in their reading confidence and ability. The Beast lives by himself in his castle, cursed by a wicked fairy and waiting for true love to break the spell. Could Belle/Beauty be the one to see through his unappealing exterior?

did you know usborne have published around 2,000 books, from baby books to young adult novels. Usborne was founded by Peter Usborne in 1973.

I would give this book 3 and a half stars

I really enjoyed an easy read and I think you should give it a try too.

Geelong footy club film pitch

I am doing this for OTTT because I think it has a lot of history. In it, I could talk about the different home grounds and why they kept changing, the different team names: pivitonians, seagulls and the cats. I will also talk about Charles Brownlow and How the Brownlow awards were started. Another topic I could focus on is the uniform and the changed throughout the years. I am mostly looking forward to hopefully interviewing someone in the geelong footy club industry, I think that would be cool to find out some more secret stories about the cats.

#Description

I have decided to do my Term 3 Passion Project on Family. It will be in a film format including introductions to each family member and things like that. I will be filming mostly at the river and at my house. I will be also getting some footage of YouTube. I am most exited for the production stage and seeing how it goes. I am really looking forward to the end result and I cant wait to see the end product.

Passion Project

In inquiry today, we were viewing people’s passion projects again. I really liked Asha’s because her filming and effects. I also loved how much effort Hannah put into her pyjamas and they turned out amazing and looked very comfortable!

  • Trial 1- mean 64- solution start 3rd from left 2nd bottom row first and finish at 4th from right 2nd top row.

Netiquette

Netiquette means being Etiquette online.

Etiquette in technology. The rules of etiquette that work when communicating or talking over the Internet or social networks or chat rooms are different from those applying when communicating in person or by audio (such as telephone) or videophone (such as Skype video).

It is very easy to stay anonymous online because no one can see your face this for some people is a go sign for cyber bulling and this is where being Etiquette comes in so we dont have any trolls or flame starters.
