Hong Kong Occupying Central Post

The Hong Kong occupation of central is not an event that is gone silence. Different opinions of this have appeard, and it has spread across to many continents outsides of just China.


The occupation of central has caused police in the first day(s) to spray tear gas on the occupiers to try and get them to leave. However, people from outside brought to them umbrellas to shield themselves from the tear gas. Because of this, this is now known as the “Umbrella Revolution”. However, because the people have occupied the different locations so long, gangs of bad guys are going to the locations to fight and try to get the protesters to leave.



My opinions of this event are biased to the side of the protesters. I think that the government is being unfair, and sometimes can be very stupid, like once on the news when the chief secretary said that the protesters were a threat because they had umbrellas, which aren’t really that good of a weapon. I also think that the government of China or just in general people in China are paying the criminals to go attack the protesters because China is anti-democracy.

One thing I am confused about is why the police arrested some of the protesters, not to be confused with the criminals. For example, some of the protest leaders were arrested by the police before being released by the court within a days time. I would like to learn more about why China won’t give Hong Kong democracy, and why the Hong Kong Chief Executive doesn’t fight to have democracy for Hong Kong.


Social Studies Unit 1 Reflection

For the unit 1 Social Studies, I think that I did quite good with a few exceptions (cough, community map). I learned a lot, like what a thematic map was, how many different thematic maps there are, what type of biomes in the world there are, what types of maps there are, and a lot more. I thought the most fun part of Unit 1 was the card game where we had to guess a word from someone. I thought it was fun because it was entertaining at the very least to watch someone under pressure and staying still like they didn’t know what a word was or what it meant. It was also funny to see people struggle with some words.   MapMr.Pierce gave me a Gold Ferdinand Magellan Badge for this unit. I agree with this because for some works I did good and others I got a bad grade, so I half got god grades and half didn’t. Badge   One strategy that didn’t work in Unit 1 was studying the night before a test, and not studying before so I am well prepared. However, one strategy that did work was using my time wisely in class so I had less homework at home for Social Studies.   My learning goal for Unit 2 of Social Studies is to get better grades, finish every work piece, and study more before a summative, not just the night before. Another goal is also to not forget what I learn from the unit.

Punctuating Dialogue

What I learned about punctuating dialogue:

How to properly punctuating dialogue Example How not to punctuate.
You always have punctuation before quotation mark. When somebody/something finishes speaking or before they even speak. 1.My dad came and exitingly screamed, “I just won the lottery!”

2.”Class, today you will learn how to punctuating dialogue properly.”

1.”I can prove money is made from trees” Johnny said.

2.The teacher pointed at me and said “You are staying in after class for detention!”

You don’t split different sentences that someone is saying with quotation marks unless you have something to put in between them. 1. “Mom! Can John and I learn violin? Please?” I sincerely asked my mother. 1″Mom!” “Can John and I learn violin?” “Please?” I sincerely asked my mother.
When a new person talks you indent and put their speech on a new line, but not a new paragraph. 1. “Mom, what is one plus one?” I asked.

“Two, sweetie” She replied instantly.

“Yes, I know that, but how do we prove it?” I answered back.

“Draw a number line and then show your steps from getting to two” My mom wisely returned.

1. “Mom, what is one plus one?” I asked.”Two, sweetie” She replied instantly.”Yes, I know that, but how do we prove it?” I answered back. “Draw a number line and then show your steps from getting to two” My mom wisely returned.
You don’t always need to show who is saying something, if the audience will know who is saying what.     “Thanks! Now I think I am ready for the test tommorow!”

“You’re welcome dear, now remember to not study too late into the night!”

“Don’t worry, I won’t!”
