Re christmas

The trappings of Christmas are here, and that isn't good. Today I am going to talk about the deprecatory effects of Greed on Christmas.


First off, large companies, such as the warehouse, are milking Christmas by using deals, and subtly encouraging us to buy gifts, to give them more money. One good example of this is the advent calendars. They are literally giving you chocolate because of Christmas. And this leads to our next point…


That people are ignoring people who get nothing, who are struggling to survive, who would do anything to get taken care of, and we are buying gifts for people who live in relative luxury. We are spending hundreds on toys and gifts, while others are lucky to get one full meal a day. That is all because…


We are forgetting the true meaning of Christmas in the favor of the new one. I mean look at it! we are buying gifts for either us or those who live in a relatively good household, instead of giving gifts and food to those who have none. I think that is one of the main reason for the African children. We are ignoring them.

And so, I have listed the facets of evil in the Christmas season which stem from the reservoir of Greed. And now you may act on my words!

And here is my presentation.
And here is one third of the story of samson!

KOS four sentences.

We have learnt that you must stand up for yourself, but it is harder than you think. The victim or abuser could be anyone and it is always the abusers fault. We must think about consequences and who to ask for help. Also, we learnt to solve problems and reinforced stranger danger.

Career Essay

The world of coding is a very complex one. There is the binary code, the well-known 1s and 0s, and there are the coding languages, which allow a human to write programs without canceling all connections to the outside world, swallowing pills and tablets instead of eating and drinking, and breaking their hands by typing to fast for too long to make a simple game like Pong - For those who weren’t around in the olden days, Pong is the first video game ever made, and the only thing that happens is a cube gets bounced around by two white lines, controlled by the two players. It was made BEFORE the Atari.  A programming language is a set of syntax rules that determine how the computer should act. It is possible to learn how to code with a pen and paper, with preset sheets of code, which the student has to replicate and change to turn into a new program. To create a program with the python coding language, you must enter a lot of commands, variables, and prompts into a special txt file, such as a Hello message, it would be Hello.py.
The binary code 1s and 0s are the representation of the computers transistors, which are either on, (1) or off, (0). On most computers, there are tens of millions of transistors, which is why writing a program in binary code would take so much time and effort. There are also websites to make coding easy, such as scratch, which give easy-to-use interfaces to make a simple program. The different coding languages are meant for different purposes, such as notepad as opposed to mine-craft. This is how a computer runs a program; it first translates the source code that we have written into assembly language, which is turned into machine language, which is turned into binary code and run.

To become a programmer, you need to have a bachelor's degree in most computer fields, and knowledge of programming languages. The job growth will probably be 23% for all applications software developers.
The salary will be between $35,895 - $95,478 depending on the job, skill, and experience. The bonus is between nothing and $10,304 depending on performance. The profit sharing is between $1.64 and $51,823 depending on the total profit. The total pay is between $32,935 and $99,909 depending on how good you are and where you work. The median is $57,273.

On this site called XDA, there is a set of rules for a professional programmer to be recognized. They are as follows:
The application must have 3 months of development. this is because you must be able to prove you spent time and effort on this project. It must come from an official source (stock ROM or AOSP-like source),  so that it becomes an official program so we are able to authenticate it. For apps very basic programs do not count, because it is easy to create a cookie-cutter game from other people's work. Teams cannot be certified, because some members can piggyback on the work of others. To be certified you must be active in the community, because we have to make money somehow. You must have at least 2 full games to certify, so that we can have proof that you are committed, and not just deciding to make something for kicks. There must be no history of bans and such, because that is what you get for breaking the rules. The change-logs must have detailed updates for each new version, so that there is nothing unexpected that was intentional. The changelogs must explain clearly what was done and why, because you can’t just do random stuff for no reason The product cannot be made from a derivative product like an online kitchen, because that is a ‘cookie cutter.’ It must specify what ‘kernel’ it is using, so that we can do… something. If 100% stock it must state that. For apps a free version is available (not a trial), because we do not want anyone else to make money off of it. Sources must be posted and downloadable with build comments, tool-chain used, and must compile, so that others can do variations of what you did. Sources must be released via forking + commits rather than “lump releases” so that we can make it easy for people to copy you.

To sum it up, coding can do wondrous things and is relatively easy to use if you know how, but learning is the tricky part. though there are various courses on coding, it takes multiple sessions to actually absorb the information.

Email from God

An Email from God to all people.
You gave us free will because you gave us dominion over the animals, and to test our commitment to you. You also gave us free will to take care of the earth when you were paying attention to heaven.

You wish us to use our free will to preserve the earth you made for us and to honor your name. You also want us to choose to care for one another.

The thing you want us to do the most is choose to obey your commandments at all times. The second thing you want us to do is to give all we have for the betterment of all.

Term 3 review

three things that have gone well this term are Isabella's and Cameron's (mostly) non-annoying behavior, the system for the computer learning, and the programming knowledge. two things I am looking forward to are the new programming book and the camp trip. one of the challenges of this term was trying not to react to annoying people.

my learning goals writing.

My learning goals for writing are to use a variety of sentence structures and beginnings for effect and to use appropriate punctuation independently. my reading goal is to think critically better by using other books. my maths goals are to improve on speed, and ratio skills.
