Thomas Edison deserves a monument because he was the first man to successfully make the first incandescent light bulb in 1879, phonograph in 1877 and the quadruplex telegraph in 1875. In 1877 he also developed the carbon transmitter, this device improved the audibility of the telephone by letting it transmit voices at higher volume and more clarity. In 1912 Henry Ford asked Edison to design a battery for the self-starter that would be introduced on the iconic Model T. Edison set up a lab in Menlo Park, he developed the telegraph, phonograph, incandescent electric light bulb, alkaline storage batteries and Kinetograph (a camera for motion pictures).
This explains that if you work hard enough to reach your goals and accomplish them you'll get what you deserve out of it. If you dream of being an athlete, but never out time and effort into it then you most likely won't be one. If you want to be a doctor but don't go to school for it or take any classes on how to be a doctor you won't be. By doing bad in school and never putting effort into your school work or even quitting school, you will not pass. If you don't pass then you won't graduate. By not graduating you can't get your diploma or get to go to collage you won't be able to get the high paying job you want or what you've always wanted to do.
If you're mean to people or treat people wrong chances are they're gonna treat you the same way. If you're nice to them and treat them the way you'd want to be treated, they most likely will be nice if you are.
The FBI shouldn’t try and force Apple to help them hack into people’s iPhone’s, so Apple did the right thing refusing to help. Apple shouldn’t have to help the FBI in their investigation.
This is a backdoor attack on people’s rights. According to Randal G. Holcombe author of Apple's refusal to cooperate with the FBI was the right thing to do, “Apple phones have features that protect the privacy of the information on them, and the Fourth Amendment guarantees people this right to privacy. Americans have the right to possess information without having to share it with the government. And Apple has the right to provide products that help Americans protect this right.” Apple has a setting where no one can get into a person’s Iphone, and Apple doesn’t want to violate these people’s rights. Apple lets them have this right because of the privacy setting on the iPhone. If that person doesn’t need to share information with the government then no one should force them to. This setting is meant to keep information private, and Apple shouldn’t have to create a whole new software to change that.
This refusal is hard to justify when America and its allies are under attack from extremist. According to Whitt Flora author of Apple's refusal to cooperate with the FBI is hard to justify, “U.S. intelligence experts have warned of a similar problem for years. They worry that there might be several thousand extremists in America awaiting similar orders.” “Our political leaders have been slow to heed those warnings. Now, hopefully, they are starting to realize that World War III might have already started. It will not end until we eliminate the tens of thousands of extremists eager to carry out horrible attacks.” The FBI believes there are thousands of extremists that are waiting for the right time to commit a horrendous act. Every person they think is an extremist really isn’t one. The FBI shouldn’t be trying to eliminate all of these people that they think are extremist because they haven’t done anything wrong. By hacking into Apple phone’s, it isn’t going to give the FBI all the information they want because not everyone owns an Apple product.
Apple wants to protect the value of its brand. “I have seen arguments that Apple refused to unlock the phone for business reasons, to protect the value of its brand. If this is true, should the U.S. government be able to force companies to engage in activities that damage the value of their own brands?” “FBI officials maintained that the U.S. government has the right to force companies to take actions that will help it to obtain people’s personal information. Apple was not hiding anything and would have had to create new software to do what the FBI wanted.” If they force Apple to create a new software, it is violating company rights. Apple believes that if they helped the FBI with this investigation that they will lose the value of their brand. Apple is supposed to be a product that keeps people’s personal information private.
Apple shouldn’t have to help the FBI in their investigation. People think that the FBI trying to hack their phones is a backdoor attack on people’s rights. The FBI believes there is extremist waiting for the right time to commit a crime. Apple doesn’t want to help because they are trying to protect the value of their brand and people’s privacy rights.
Week of January 30th - February 3rd
According to a study at a University in New York they say that true happiness derives from having close relationships, time to focus on personal growth and connections to your community, and that the celebrity lifestyle can make those things extremely difficult. The fame and fortune you get from being famous isn’t worth it.
Fame and fortune doesn’t keep all celebrities happy. “If being a celebrity is so great, why are so many of them, well, kind of messed up?” For example Justin Bieber at the age of 16 was in the top hits, earning millions of dollars and had sold-out concert tours. Lately, however, at the age 22 Justin has been arrested for drunk driving, charged with vandalism and has bailed on a couple of shows. Another example Shia LaBeouf, was an actor in the movie Transformers, he is now known mostly for bizarre meltdowns in public and also struggles with drugs and alcohol. Jennifer Lawrence has had to deal with a lot of drama, her phone has been hacked and her looks and eating habits have been criticized in the media.
Some people think that being a celebrity is great. People might think it could make them happy to be a celebrity because of all of the attention they get from photographers and fans. Others may just think being famous could make you happy because of the money they'd get from it. It seems as that celebrities who became famous as a teenager deal with the fame better than someone who became a celebrity as an adult. "It can be difficult for a celebrity to trust others and to make and keep true friends. Stars have to wonder if their “friends' like them for who they are or what they have." "Famous people can't so much as walk their dogs or tie their shoes without being gawked at, photographed, tweeted about, or Instagrammed."
Not all celebrities crumble under the pressure of fame. Many celebrities that became famous as a teenager seem to deal with the fame better than if you became famous when you’re an adult. Many teens like all of the money they get from it and like the idea of being very well known. Celebrities that became famous as a teen may be able to deal with the fame better because they’ve been dealing with it most of their life.
The fame and fortune you get from being famous isn’t worth it. The happiness you get from fame fades away in no time. It’s hard for people to do everyday things without being followed by paparazzi, and posted about all over social media. Many celebrities are criticized on the internet. Being a celebrity isn’t as great as everyone thinks it is.
Over Christmas break I spent most of my time with friends and family. The weekend after break started I went to my dad’s sisters house for dinner and to open presents. On Christmas Day my family went to my mom’s sisters house for lunch. After we ate we all opened presents, while we waited for the Cavs and Warriors game to come on. Once my mom and I got home we went to the the Norwalk movie theater to see Collateral Beauty.
A couple days before break we had a basketball game against Western Reserve and won. A few of us after the game went to East of Chicago to eat, and after we ate we went to Kila’s house to all hangout for a little while. The next day us girls went out and cleaned the horse barn.
A few days after Christmas my mom took me shopping with the money I had gotten and finished buying the gifts I wanted to get for my friends. On New Year's Eve I spent most of my day with friends. We ordered Bdubs, and we also had crackers and different types of dips. Liz and I played Just Dance 4 with her mom for about an hour before 12 o'clock when the ball dropped.
I am currently in the eighth grade, and my GPA is a 2.8. I enjoy working with other people and not sitting down all day just staring at a computer. Once I get older I want to take classes and learn more about physical therapy.
When I grow up, I want to be a physical therapist. I want to get into a good college, so I can get my doctoral degree. According to American Physical Therapy Association, “All physical therapists must receive a graduate degree from an authorized physical therapist program before taking the national licensure exam that allows them to practice. Today's physical therapist is required to complete a graduate degree from an authorized education program.” This job is high in demand, and I don’t have to have much work experience or training. I would have to have good reading comprehension, critical thinking and I have to be able to speak fluently. To be able to become a physical therapist I must get my doctoral or professional degree, and this could also take up to eight years of college to get. It is also a very hard college to get into for this type of work.
I’m going to go to Ehove to learn more about physical therapy. According to the EHOVE website you can go to work at a Fitness Center, Health Spa, Sporting Facility or be a Physical Therapy Aide, Personal Trainer or work in a Long Term Care Facility. It would be a good idea to go to EHOVE to try out the different types of therapist, and I have the opportunity to get my college credits for this career by going to EHOVE. There are many different types of therapists that you can be like a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Physical Therapist (PT), Massage Therapy (LMT), Certified Athletic Trainer (ATC), Occupational Therapy, Physical Education Teacher, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Exercise Physiologist, Recreational Therapist.
Being a physical therapist can help you advance into a better job career. Later in life I want to move on to being a nurse practitioner. A nurse practitioner is high in demand and you’ll still need the same skills, and your master’s degree just like a physical therapist. The only thing that will really change in this job is how much you are getting paid and it is a more experienced job. With a doctoral degree, I can do almost any doctor related job.
Since I was younger, I’ve always wanted to work in a hospital because it seems like an interesting job to do. These jobs take a lot of responsibilities because I have to be sure I do everything right, and I need to make sure I diagnose the person with the right problem. Career day has showed me that I want to go to college to get my master’s degree, so I can become a physical therapist.
Before career day I was thinking about being a middle school teacher, but once I seen how expensive insurance, a house, car and many other things were, I knew that I needed to find a better paying job. My second job option that I chose to be is a physical therapist.
