Performing Arts

 In this Unit for PA, we were doing Light Painting. Light painting is where you stick some glow sticks or light onto your arms and legs, then you dance in the dark. There will be an app that could record all the light’s movements then make it into a photo. It is really cool!

            I loved this unit soooo much because I love to dance in class. I am soooo glad that this unit finally came.This is what we did during class. First, we talked about the Elements, Central Idea and stuff, then we started planning on a storyboard. Taber, Karis, Ava and I were working in a group. We then made up our own unique pattern then drew it on the storyboard following with a description. This part took the longest time in the whole process and we were very satisfied with our work when we are done. Tomorrow, we are going to do the dance and recording. I can’t wait till Performing Arts lesson tomorrow!

UOI Inquiry

This week, we are researching about our favourite eco system. My partner is Zamaira and we are working really hard. What we need to do is that we need to research and make a report. Now, we are almost finish doing the report. We only need to see the success criteria then we are done. We loved to research and we wanted to do more. We learnt a lot of new information and I am almost an expert on it. I hope that in the future we could do more research and more inquiry. I enjoyed it so much that I want to skip PE and everything.  If you have any question to ask about the Great Barrier Reef, ask me!

Here’s some information:

Pusheen is a cartoon cat who is the subject of comic strips and sticker sets on Facebook. Pusheen Cat was created in 2010 by Claire Belton and Andrew Duff for a comic strip on their website, “Everyday Cute”. The original comic strip series included characters modeled after Belton, Duff, their dog named Carmen, and Pusheen, a chubby gray tabby cat based on Belton’s parents’ cat. Its name is from the Irish word puisín, which means kitten in Irish. When the “I am Pusheen Cat” book released, it sold out really quick.Pusheen first appeared in 2011 in the comic “Pusheen Things” on Claire Belton and Andrew Duff’s website, Everyday Cute.In 2011, Belton and Duff launched a spin-off site dedicated to Pusheen. In 2013, Belton published “I Am Pusheen The Cat”, a collection of comic strips featuring Pusheen. Pusheen has become well known for appearing in sticker sets on Facebook. On Facebook, stickers are images that can be attached to personal messages or comments. The feature, including a set of Pusheen stickers, was introduced to iOS in April 2013, and added to the main website in July of the same year.In an article for PC Magazine on emoji and unicode, Sascha Segan referred to Pusheen as Facebook’s “proprietary emoji”, being used as a form of vendor lock-in.Pusheen is an example of the popularity of cats on the Internet. An exhibition at the New York City Museum of the Moving Image examined the phenomenon, highlighting Pusheen alongside other celebrity cats such as Grumpy Cat and Lil Bub. The Facebook page for Pusheen has over 9.1 million fans as of February 2016.The brand has expanded with merchandise.

Micro beads

Yesterday, I went to the third floor lab to attend a talk about micro beads by the Plastic Free Seas organisation. We talked all about micro beads and was really fun. What I learnt about was people shouldn’t use products with micro beads in it. Why? Because when you finish washing your body, the micro beads will wash down the drain. People wou the waterld ask: What’s the problem? Well, micro beads are made out of plastic. When it gets to the drain the micro beads will get into the sea. When it get into the sea, there’s a huge chance the the sea animals might eat the plastic and the plastic will clog their throat and will die. The micro beads are really small that you can’t even sea them. During the talk, the Plastic Free Seas organisation said that in one of their out to the water trolls, they found more than 200,000,000 micro beads in just one small container. They already asked SaSa and Watsons to stop selling products with micro beads in it.Fortunatly, SaSa said they will stop selling products with micro beads in it until the end of 2018.

Please save the ocean and DO NOT use product with micro beads!!

Save The Pink Dolphins

As you know, pink dolphins are getting fewer andimages fewer in Hong Kong. The reason that they get fewer and fewer is because of pollution. Nowadays, on bridges near the oceans that have pink dolphins, the cars are Unknowngetting more and more. Polluted oil com
es out of the cars on the bridges and dribbles in to the ocean. When the pink dolphins drinks the oil, that will make them sick and even die. Another thing is fishing nets. Some people wants to capture the dolphins and put them into a small tank kind of thingy and let people see it. Well, there is 2 problems. 1,the dolphins are already getting fewer and fewer. Why would people want to catch them? 2,if peo
ple fail to put them in the fishing net, they just leave the fishing nets in the sea which is a big big problem. dolphins get tangled in it and might die in it.The garbage problem is also a big big problem. If people stop throwing garbage in the ocean, the pink dolphins won’t eat it and they won’t die.If pink dolphins extinct, the Hong Kong mascot will be gone.There will also be fewer sea animals in the sea.

Please share this post to more people and tell them about the pink dolphins!

SAVE THE PINK DOLPHINS!
