The “DOPE (not the drug) test”

Their is a test, maybe you heard of it, called a DOPE test. It is a type of test that tells you about your behavior from a few questions that it will ask you, the behaviors are split into four groups, the Dove, the Owl, the Peacock, and the Eagle.

Behavior Types: When I did the test just moments ago, the highest scoring behavior types I scored were the “Dove”, and the “Peacock”, which on both I scored 13.

Definition of Dove and Peacock: Dove-“The compassionate and peaceful dove. The dove is people-oriented, loyal, friendly, hard working and a great team player but tends to avoid change, confrontation, risk-taking and assertiveness. Peacock-The showy peacock. The peacock loves talking, being the centre of attention, has passion/enthusiasm and is happy/optimistic. Peacocks can be accused of talking too much, and aren’t good with detail or time-control.

Real life examples: I love to work with my friends, you will find me working with other people rather than myself most of the time. I don’t talk a lot, just one occasionally I get chatty, one time I was unintentionally distracted by talking a lot while in a english tuition.

Two tips to become peacock and dove: For the dove, be more sensitive and logical to other peoples opinion and listen to their inputs as well. For the peacock, I suggest that you must do something that you think is interesting so that you at least have something to tell them instead of nothing.

Blog Post about a Figurative Language, Poems

Figurative language is somewhat very powerful, more powerful then guns, more powerful then a orbital strike in a wordy way. They can be very boring (which I know from experience), but they are very interesting and have meaning. So for a figurative language project we did, I feel that I didn’t try my best, I also felt that this task wasn’t very interesting, I just could’t find anything to interest me. I like the way that poets change words around to make a different feeling in a audience, but I just can’t make any meaning of the words. So I think that I still have a way to go with  figurative language.

PE Questions Answered like a boss!

Yo guys, currently my PE/Physical Education teacher Mr. Steiner asked my entire class to answer the following questions on our blogs. This is all related to the PE Central Idea-Success in games depends on skills, rules, strategies and sportsmanship.” 

What does sportsmanship look like/mean to me?

Sportsmanship looks like players happily giving each other good, supportive comments on their actions as well as no grudges held if you lose a game. What sportsmanship means to me is that I think good compliments can boost your friends self-esteem and help them and yourself win a game.

Why is it important to follow the rules of a game? 

It is important to follow the rules, because if you don’t then yourself or the other players (depends on the game) can get seriously hurt or can uncover some very dangerous grudges.

Why are good team strategies important to success in team games? Give examples of strategies for team handball?  How would you create and/or deny space in team handball?

Strategies are important to a game, because they can help confuse, anger, toy with, and win a game. An example of a strategy we used in team handball was to use the goalie whenever you could as well as to create and deny space by blocking and running around the man that would block the flight path of the ball.

What is a strategy you/your team used in “Capture the Flag” to be more successful?

One strategy we used for capture the flag was to make a kind of semi-circle barrier around the line in which no one could get in and no one could get out, because of our sentries at the back, which allowed us to know if the person would try to make a run for “freedom” with the flag.

Describe why having strong skills helps your team be more successful? Give some examples of skills with a specific team sport in mind.

You will need a strong skill for lets say tennis (Tennis!, Go Roger Federer!), the skills you need are that you must be fast, have strong arms, endurance, a strategic mind to help you win this game, and of course a understanding of the shots you can make and how to hit them.

Why does a team that is very physically fit have an advantage over a team that is not fit?

A very physically fit team has more endurance and can keep running (I’m still thinking of tennis, sorry! 🙂 for a long time, while a physically unfit team would give up the chase of the ball, or would be very tired after a few runs around a field.

“BOL”: About Volume…?

Hey guys, it’s me again, the mysterious Bazinga 18, although I’m not mysterious if you’ve hacked my blog. DID YOU HACK INTO MY BLOG! I’m kidding about that last part, so for this weeks “BOL”, I have to write down a lesson on Volumes, which is especially useful for you people who still don’t know how to calculate volumes. So first lets start with the volume of something easy, like a rectangular prism/3D version of a rectangle. To find a rectangular prims volume, you must first multiply the base with the height, or in other words the bases length and width with the height. For example, lets say that the base of the prism has a length of 5 and a width of 4 and a height of 7, well from the tips I gave you above. We can clearly find out that the volume would be 5x4x7=140
