I chose Eli Whitney for my monument project. I chose him for many reasons, he made many changes in society which has led us up to where we are today. He studied at Yale first in 1789 to become a lawyer, but later figured out that he could design and build. He went to build the cotton gin, yet didn’t get the recognition that he deserved in the beginning. After not getting recognized he went to push the industrial parts mode of production. Then in 1794 Whitney had finally been able to patent the gin and had become very successful making the cotton industry increase. After Whitney had become so successful he decided that he would start designing more inventions when he had the time. This is why I chose Eli Whitney.
This quote is like you and your last name. You’re the tree, your last name is your fruit. When you are born you are known by your last name because society does not know you yet, but some know your parents or past generations of your name. You will have a reputation based upon your this name. When people see that name they will think of something whether it be good or bad. You can turn a good name to a bad one and that reputation will stick for future generations to come or a bad one to a good one.
Even the pro’s had to start somewhere small, practicing can take you a long way to a road to success. “Basketball, like all sports, is predicted on the execution of fundamentals. The coach is the teacher. His subject; fundamentals.” - Dr. Jack Ramsey
Improving ball handling in the game of basketball can be a start to evolving into a better player. You need to keep control of the ball, bounce the ball hard. The more time the ball spends in your hand the more control you have over the ball, the harder you bounce the ball, the quicker it will get back to your hand. Keep your head up while dribbling, be looking at your surroundings. Dribble with fingertips, not the palm of your hand. Teach mentality, most players take unneeded dribbles during a game. Practice outside your comfort zone, such as go faster than you usually do, don’t be ashamed to lose the ball. Pick it up and try again, pushing yourself is the only way to improve. (some things stated by Basketball Dribbling and Ball Handling Video Clips, Fundamentals, Drills, and Tips.) Stay in control of the ball. The more control, the better player anyone will become. Have a comfort zone. Ball handling improves through time. The more someone practices the more it will come naturally when playing. That is why an athlete should practice not only during, but outside of the gym.
Shooting form has a lot to do with what a basketball player practices. Eyes on Target, Stance and Balance, Shot Pocket, Grip, Balance Hand, Delivery, Upforce and Landing, Follow Through, Correct Shot. (Proper Basketball Shooting Technique, Fundamentals, Form, Mechanics. Web.) Basketball players should have a uniform when they shoot. Meaning find a correct way, that is comfortable for you to shoot, and shoot this way every time. And when getting a pass to shoot, the person getting the pass should always catch the pass in the start of the shooting position. Reminder, when shooting your elbow replaces your hand.
To improve yourself as a player, work with drills that will help with some techniques you may be having trouble with. Chair Pull-Ups. Place chairs at the left and right elbows. Place a ball in each chair. Stay low as you take the ball out of the chair, dribble once and shoot. Cut to the second chair, staying low as you go into your shot. Have a rebounder replace the balls on the chairs. Run this drill at game speed for a set time or until you make a certain number of shots. (drills by - Wilkerson, Danny. "5 Drills to Perfect Your Jump Shot." STACK. Web. 01 Feb. 2017.) Some athletes may have trouble with some jump shots from further places from the basket on the floor. That athlete can always ask a coach for help or even ask to stay after practice to run through stuff they think they may need a little work on. Always ask a coach for drills they think will help you. It will only make a better player in the end, plus a little extra work never hurt.
Improving as a player should be every athlete's goal. Basketball first started out just being a sport that was supposed to condition athletes during the winter months. It was created by James Naismith. Ever since then people have came up with drills, for ball handling and such things to improve how they play. In order to improve you have to want to improve first. And never let anyone tell you, you can’t.

Have you ever wanted to be famous? I think most people have, I mean why wouldn't someone want to be paid thousands of dollars to be put on a show or movie, or to even go on tour/tours. Celebrities get a lot of attention, but is it always the attention they were looking for in the beginning? Most celebrities have mental and physical health issues after the attention starts, why would you want to mess up your health and life just to say you were and, or are "famous". The after effects could be life long and you could have serious problems.
It is known that celebrities in today’s society crack under the pressure of fame. In the Scope Article “Can fame make you happy?” they use the term “kind of messed up.”. They at first think they can handle what is going on until they have people watching, photographing, videotaping everything you do, and picking out your every flaw. You can’t live a normal life with that because if you make the smallest mistake, everyone will know. That is why, personally, I don’t think becoming famous is the best idea for anyone. I mean, some can handle all the attention, and they like it. Some cannot.
Celebrities do live great lives. I feel you should work for your achievements, which most in this case, do. They are the ones making the achievements. They star in one movie and are making way more money than the average worker, they get the best seats at prestigious award shows, and top designer clothes. They make a statement in “Can fame make you happy?”, that happiness from fame comes from fleeting, fleeting means to disappear. If they live such great lives, why would they just disappear?
The Scope article is saying that celebrities don't always live the life they want or seem to live at all times. Some have great lives and they fulfill them with what they became famous for, and their families. Others have very serious health and behavior problems because they cracked under the pressure of the fame. As a celebrity you have to have a tolerance level because, although you get everything you want, you have to be able to handle what might come with everyone always watching your every move. No matter what you are doing a photographer is following you, talking about you, just trying to pinpoint your every flaw.
Becoming famous has been everyone’s dream no matter what it would be for. Famous could mean different things to different people because we all have different talents and we have different point of views.
>>>> Britney Spears has had a few rough patches and she is an example of someone who has had mental health issues due to the fame being too much.
Christmas break started with we had basketball practice the 21st to get ready for our game we had against Western Reserve on the 22nd, who we beat. Although after that Christmas with family started, Christmas in my family is very important. Christmas is all about time with family, and loved ones.
Christmas celebrations for my family started the 24th, on Christmas Eve we had my step dad's siblings and children along with my brother come to our house to have a Christmas dinner and to open presents, I also opened presents Christmas Eve because I had to go to my dad’s house. On Christmas morning I went to my father's to have Christmas with him and his side of the family. Afterward, we went to my grandma's on my mom's side to see my aunts and have dinner and open the gifts that they had gotten us and talk about the new coming family member, and then we went home.
After Christmas was over I spent most of my time with friends, besides the time we had basketball practice, I had gone to the movies with 3 close friends and watched Collateral Beauty which I highly recommend to anyone looking for a movie to watch, it is about a guy who was always happy to work until his 6 year old daughter passed then he lost mostly all will to do anything. Afterward, we had spent the night together and one of their houses. Then we all came back to my house because I had invited them to a get together we were having at our house for New Year's Eve, we made slime which is a very weird substance that we had seen online and then we talked about everything we had gotten for Christmas. Then the last day of break I went with Emily and the people she invited to Medina, to a go-kart track for her birthday. Then I had gone home to get ready for school.
Although I’m only 14 years old, I know that I love science and math. I love feeling part of something, such as helping someone’s health. Currently I’m getting A’s and B’s that I am bringing up to bring up my GPA as of right now in the eighth grade. I will hopefully increase my study habits in high school because I want to attend Willard Ohio’s Anesthesiology classes. When I grow up, I want to be an Anesthesiologist.
As a child I was always asked what I wanted to be when I became an adult, my answer always had to do with being in a medical field. An Anesthesiologist or Anesthetist is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine (the goal of perioperative care is to provide better conditions for patients before operation, during operation, and after operation). “According to Ohio Means Jobs” - An Anesthesiologist has a median yearly salary of $187,200. To be an Anesthesiologist I will have have to have either a doctoral or professional degree. Skills needed are critical thinking, active listening, and judgement and decision. In this field future Anesthesiologists do not have to have another work experience. As a child I was always asked what I wanted to be, and now I finally have an idea of what I would like to be and what I would like to go to schooling for. I want to have a chance to better people’s health. The pay for an Anesthesiologist is a great amount. I have always loved science and math and critical thinking. This job is all of that put into one. I can get training and go straight to work without having to stop my career because I need another job before hand.
I have been researching and I can even stay close to home for this job. According to "Anesthesiology School In Willard OH - Anesthesiology School."- website. In Willard Ohio they have schooling to be an Anesthesiologist which includes an in depth program that can last up to 6 years. Willard Ohio students will learn how to monitor the fluid intake of patients, how to insert IV drugs and a variety of other tasks and skill essentials leading up to being an Anesthesiologist. Medical technology, physiology, chemistry, biology, nursing or physics are only some of the areas that students can study in if they want to get their license in anesthesiology. Therefore they have to get their bachelor's degree in one of those classes. Future anesthesiologists typically have a 2 year graduate program that they have to do. To be able to do this job future anesthesiologist’s cannot be struggling with grades throughout high school because I personally want the higher schools to pick me so I can have a better education so I can have the job that I have been working for. This is when my GPA really counts and my grades all together. It can take a lot of schooling to become one of these doctors so they might also want to have a liking for school. I will have to have a lot of training to become an Anesthesiologist because I have someone’s life in my hands.
Along with other medical fields it takes a lot of experience to become an Anesthesiologist. According to "Anesthesiology School In Willard OH - Anesthesiology School." - website. Willard Ohio anesthesiology surely involves a lot of experience, and different certificate programs which all have different requirements – on average, an anesthesiology school, its students need to complete up to 2,000 hours of clinical training or even more in different medical specialties, from paediatrics to general surgery and others, and only after that they get to focus exclusively on the desired subfield in anesthesiology. Which all means I will have to be traveling a lot to be able to get all of this done before I can even start the job. I have to be willing to put in the time and effort to even think about going into any medical field. I will be dealing with people’s lives with this job I cannot just think I can become anything in this field if I cannot get excellent grades. There is a lot of schooling involved, but if I love what I’m going to do it’s all worth it in the outcome, I also have to be willing to travel to be able to do this job.
I want to become an Anesthesiologist when I get older. Not only because I like school, but because I would like to have the feeling that I’m helping someone’s health in the long run. I feel I would enjoy this job because of the amount of people that I will meet and the experience that I will get.
When I was asked what I wanted to be when I got older, I had always said something along the lines of a nurse or doctor. I wanted to help people’s health in some way, and the money factor had always been in mind too. After the reality store I then realized what it was like to have to not only pay for yourself and the things that you want, but I had to pay for a family and the things that we needed, which is a lot more than what most people expect.
The first part of the day started out with the reality store, we had got a check, and assigned job, and family that we needed to pay for. Life is more expensive and difficult probably more difficult than any of the kids our age understand, so I now believe that all the kids our age need to appreciate the little things that our parents go through for us because they do spend a lot and do a lot for us even if it’s not the things we would want them too.
Later in the day we had gotten to go to the high school to listen to three people speak, these people had something with a career choice that had been chosen for us through a survey of the things we liked to do. I got to sit through a CSI and forensic science speech, a social media and sports speech, and a STEM and math speech. The one I personally found most interesting was the social media and sports because he explained that what you want to do now as a teenager you probably won’t end up doing in the future whether it be because of expenses or because your likings have changed. You change and see the world differently when you are given scenarios like the ones we were given for the reality store. Life is what you make of it, you can give yourself a budget and not worry about spending too much and having money issues, and you can continue school and get a good paying job in the outcome. There are so many things you can do to improve your life before you become an adult, appreciate the things that others do for you now because you will have to be doing it in the future for someone else.
Hillary Clinton has a wealth of political experience. She also believes every child in America should have equal opportunities when it comes to education. Hillary Clinton wants to enforce gun control, in order to prevent gun violence. When the time comes America should vote for Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton is the more experienced candidate. Hillary Clinton is running as a Presidential candidate, and she has had plenty of political experience such as being in charge of major events that are happening in the United States. Hillary Clinton has served as secretary of state, U.S. senator from New York, first lady of the United States, first lady of Arkansas, a practicing lawyer, law professor and an activist. Hillary Clinton has had experience having to make big decisions to try to make a situation better for everyone, she is here to make improvements not to just tell the people what they want to hear. Many people do not agree with her on what she plans to do with our country although she is willing to make reasonable improvements to help build the economy back up.
Everyone around the world deserves a free and equal education that is legal. People are thinking having Donald Trump as president is better because he is “going to build a wall”. That is not the best way to solve any problem, especially because he is just trying to block out the problems like they aren’t even there. A big reason Donald Trump wants to build the wall is because people are claiming the immigrants are taking the people’s jobs when in reality the jobs we will probably have in the future aren’t even known of yet. If people would continue school through college we would be getting the better jobs as they would trying to get a good paying job without an education and wouldn’t have to worry about other people taking our jobs away since we could possibly have a better education when it would come to the point of getting jobs.
Hillary Clinton is trying to control gun rights, she’s not trying to take the guns away. Hillary Clinton has made remarks in some debates about gun control, she isn’t looking to make the people who own legal guns upset, she is looking at the bigger picture. Which is the mass shootings that are happening where more and more innocent people are getting injured and killed this is occurring because there is very little control over the access to bear arms. If we would have more gun control maybe these shootings wouldn’t happen. She’s trying to make society more safe, she wants people to feel safe to be around others. She is wanting to save lives.
America should vote for Hillary Clinton because she has had many opportunities in her life to show she is more than capable to become a leader and make improvements in society. She is trying to give everyone a better life. She wants to make the society better as a whole because the more people that can go to school, the more jobs that will be made and become available. Hillary Clinton wants people to feel safe, not just in their homes, but outside them too. She wants to slowly make small improvements that mean a lot to most people that in the long run will make America a safe and happy place again.
