Ariana Grande went fom being a tv show actress to a popular singer. With he show victourgous ending she got her own show that also ended after one season. After this she streted her singing career, this brought a lot of hate and she took it like a champ. The death of her grandfather killed her but she knew she had to be positive and keep bringing new music.

This article was to tell young fans of Ariana that even though she is a huge celebrity she has to handle everyday stuff like family issues and family deaths. It also talks about how she is criticized and that she doesn't care, she will ignore the people that say horrible stuff to her.

I really don't know why my classmates would choose the answer they picked because it is there opinion but i did noticed that on the males side the votes were so close and on the females side they were so different and I feel like because the question is about women and if we are treated equaly, there was such a big difference in the females because  we experience this and we know that we have dealt with this, we chose the simple answer as false, but the males that do not experience this think that we are treated equally and think that true is the right answer.

Recap: Last week I chose my mom, I tried to give her a nice meal after work. Last week when she had about an hour or two away from home I was making her a meal, I got the help from my brother and sister and we all got in. My dad gets out earlier than her  and he was helping us to. we decided to make her chicken with mash potatoes. She enjoyed it, so we did the same thing for about two more days until we got too tired to do it.

1) Social media can improve our quality of life by us posting what we love and meeting people that love the same thing, this will help us have a more social life and more engaging life too. All we need to do is find our passion and go for it because you will find more people that like the same stuff you do in a matter of seconds.

2) Shawn passion is snowboarding and exploring.
    My passion is just to be a maverick and be better at what I am.

3) Two parts of social media are created and consumed. You create fun things to post on social media and do stuff your good at and people will listen, it will inspire them to do it too.  When you're Consuming your taking people's post and you're adding something nice and inspiration, to help them keep posting whatever. it connect us and also interacts us with other people.

4) The story of the king of the rainforest It helps us in life because the story basically explains that you can do anything without having the necessary tool to do it.
The frog when up to the hill with out even knowing that, and the frog was deaf to so the frog was just doing what it can to go to the top.
Just in real life when Beethoven was deaf he still created music.

1) My lollipop moment would be when I was in kindergarten my own cousin came over with her best friend on the playground while I was with my best friends and my cousin introduced me to her friend, she later then had to leave and her best friend and I were hanging and at that moment we both became best friends and still today even though she isn't here, she is still one of my best friends and im glad I met her while in kindergarder. I have told my cousin that she introduced me to my best friend and she doesnt remeber that, but I still do becasue that was a really important moment for me.

2) When Marianne Williamson says "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us." She means that we are scared that we might change the world by doing what we want, we don't want the world to change, we don't like change, we are frightened that we might make such a big change to the world. I do agree because most humans are scared that if they make a change people will disagree, and they are just too scared for a change.

I would wait for my mom to get home and cook her dinner.
I would do that today or some day this week when my mom get home from work,

1) For me what makes a book a classic is how much effort and time they put into the book. Like If they actually took the time to write the book and the story behind the book is something mean full to the author.
I would also have to be touching and somewhat age appropriate to any ages for it to be known at any age.

2) The canon is a collection or list of sacred books accepted as genuine. The bible would be considered a part of the canon. In my household, we have the canon that my grandmother gave to my mom.

3) I feel that books should be banned unless they give a racial or sexual reference that the school or group doesn't like. I feel that a lot of books are banned because of religious stories and, or sexual things people don't want their kids to read to so they inform the school.
I've heard that the dictionary has been banned for schools because of some words is has in it, which make so sense to me.

 Two reasons why schools want mice and men banned is because it uses gods name If you are a really religious school or private catholic school you never use gods name in vain and if a book uses it you wouldn't even touch it, so I get why they would ban the book for this reason. The last reason why some schools banned the mice and men book is because it also uses offensive language and I feel tat it was banned more because of the parents, because the school really would care I there we a few cuss words in the book but the parents would be more strict with letting their children read a book that uses this type of language.

1) Dust pneumonia is a medical condition that develops due to the excessive exposure to dust. Dust pneumonia symptoms are asthma, influenza, eye infections, sinusitis, laryngitis, and bronchitis. High silica content was a cause of dust pneumonia.

2) Vaseline was a home remedy people would use to stop the dust from coming up there nose and they would make chest plasters out of a mixture of turpentine, kerosene and skunk oil, sometimes mixed with lard. I also remember my grandma would always use vaseline on my family everytime we would be sick.
Dust pneumonia was caused by a period of dust storms in the 1930s.

3) If I had to pack only one bag and leave with my family I would pack food, clothes, and hygiene (toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, etc). I feel that the hardest thing about moving away would be, first, it is that I have never moved before so It would be different and also I would miss my old house and I wouldn't actually know how the house we are moving in is like or if it even is a house.

1) The PSA is effective because I feel that they added real like looking action and added some real stuff that could happen if this did happen like a family being in the accident and teens. They also added the screaming which really worked. The images of the video for me was the most effective because of how it presented itself, they weren't afraid to put the real world in the video. My dad is always really strict that we have our seatbelts on and he will not move the car until we have them all on and it can sometimes be so annoying but I still understand him. He has been like this since he when to this driving class and they showed what can happen if you don't have a seatbelt on and since that moment he got paranoid about always have a seatbelt on, but I'm happy he attended that class because if he didn't my sibling won't even remember to have the belts on and who knows what would happen.

 The purpose of this PSA is to not drink and drive.
 I find this really useful because when kids go to prom the last thing they think about is drunk driving they just want to have fun and they end up drinking on the after party or sneak in some alcohol them self.
 For them, prom isn't making sure you get home safely it about partying and living.

1) The lack of a diploma can affect a person health by stressing them out because a diploma is necessary if you want a good job or want to earn a good wage. Imagine a person that dropped out of high school vs a person who did go through there whole years in high school who do you think will get a better chance of a work.

2) If 1 million kids don't get their diploma it could harm the society like having fewer jobs dropouts can have and it can effect their future of what they could have been if they did gradute, now most likely they can't be that and now there will be one less person in that job area.

3) If About 25% of high school freshmen fail to graduate from high school on time it can harm the school like having fewer graduates for that year they were supposed to gradute. Some things the school can help maybe offer some help to the student that needs help.
