dx In October 1958, Physicist William Higinbotham created what is thought to be the first video game. It was a very simple tennis game, similar to the classic 1970s video game Pong, and it was quite a hit at a Brookhaven National Laboratory open house.

I think it’s because of the advent of gaming computers and consoles, and when people have those things at home, they don’t want to drive all the way to an arcade. I do wish there were some more arcades, though. Especially ones with Virtual World cockpits, or something else over-the-top.

My literacy has improved this term since the past 3 terms, I have got to write new different types of words and I know a lot of different types of new ways to make a conjunction work. In a sentence I would normally put a conjunction at the front of a sentence because I really don’t know how to work a conjunction.

My numeracy is still the same, but I have struggled with worded problems, it’s either that, I don’t want to read or it barely makes any sense, I like reading but I can not solve out problems in a paragraph because I won’t understand it or I don’t want to do it,

Sleep plays an important role in your physical health. For example, sleep is involved in healing and repair of your heart and blood vessels. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to an increased risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and stroke.

In fact, this year’s Happiness Survey found that kids who get the recommended amount of sleep each night were twice as likely to feel happy a lot of the time

Teenagers (14-17): Sleep range widened by one hour to 8-10 hours, previously it was 8.5-9.5 hours. Younger adults (18-25): Sleep range is 7-9 hours. Adults (26-64): Sleep range did not change and remains 7-9 hours. Older adults (65+): Sleep range is 7-8 hours.
The answer to the question is 47%.

This term as a year 7 I would like to focus on handing up my work faster and get my work more done better, for example, I would want to improve my writers notebook because for the past terms I have not had enough words for my writers notebook, but last term I did about 7000 words, I was very proud of myself because I have finally done something so much bigger than usual.

In the holidays, I have prepared my writers notebook early because I wanted to hand up my work on time, Right now I have done about 5000 words, my goal is that I want to do about 10000 words because I want this term to be my favorite term and I want to work straight because its the last term and the last year for me.

Australia’s Kangaroo Problem Is Growing By Leaps and Bounds. But to Australian farmers and ranchers, they are animals that really want food pests that break down their fences, overrun their lands and eat them out of house and home. Australia these days has too many kangaroos, and no one seems to know what to do about them.

The impact of overgrazing on land with grass and soil cover is considering as a major environmental problem in Mongolia. As a result, pasture pressure increased, leading to soil degradation.

David paton has kept his fence up quite for a while now, he has kept up his fence since 2008 in Canberra, but that fence was causing a lot of problems because the kangaroos get caught and get hurt near the fence.

David think we should all cull kangaroos because kangaroos are such a big problem in Australia because they have a lot of strength.

Cull means you should get rid of the population of one object, animal…etc people cull things because they either do something very bad in the world or they might be slowly killing the environment.

I dont think culling kangaroos is a good idea because kangaroos are a very innocent type of animal but if you threaten it it will attack you and you shouldn’t really mess with kangaroos because they are very powerful.

The story about this BTN story is that its about how the letters of the alphabet had its place, I think they are making a story about this because its a very common question of how the letters of the alphabet got its place.

Phoenicia was an ancient civilization. Their civilization was spread throughout the Mediterranean between 1550 BC and 300 BC, although different sources debate the actual years. Phoenicia was organized into city-states. Each city-state was politically independent.

The Phoenician alphabet developed from the Proto – Canaanite alphabet, during the 15th century BC. Before then the Phoenicians wrote with a cuneiform script. The earliest known inscriptions in the Phoenician alphabet come from Byblos and date back to 1000 BC.

When Greek used the alphabet of Phoenician it had to introduce some vowels.

Then came the Latin speaking roman Empire. They borrowed the alphabet from the Greeks and spread it all around Europe including to England where English speaking folk added a couple more letters, bringing the count to 26.

I found out that the Phoenicians were the ones who first made the alphabet and then the Latins started to spread the alphabet among other people in Europe.

BTN Response: Electric Cars

What was the main point of the electric cars story?

The main point of the electric car story is that, people make electric cars to save the world from pollution, they also make electric cars because, petrol cars are very expensive because you would have to buy petrol for the car but the engines are very cheap, in electric cars, the car is fair more expensive than the petrol car, its because you dont need to worry about petrol and other things.

This story is about a girl named Mallory and she is 13, she wanted to write her own book and she did, her book is approximately 32,000 words long and the novel’s name is called “Behind The Wall”. Her story is about a country girl named Ella, Ella just had an incident at her home and she had to move to the city, first Ella was very shy and she had no friends there and she went to the library and she found a secret passage at the library and she made new friends and met a lot of new people.

Mallory got her idea when she was just sitting down on a bench and she saw a pigeon and a bike, her story was like a pigeon who was trying to ride a bike, but she changed the idea of the pigeon and bike to the country girl and the city.

The challenge Mallory faced across when she was writing her book is that she spent 2 years writing and editing her own book and she had to publish her own book which took Mallory a while.

BTN Response: Week 6

What is inclusivity? What do you think some of the features of an inclusive policy might be?

I think that inclusivity means that stuff are included in something. I think in an inclusive policy is laws that you follow.

What is equality?

Equality is when you share things out equally to other people properly, so everyone has a fair amount of things

What is equity?

Equity means that when everyone of you would have to get the same thing. Like in the picture the equity is everyone get to have the same thing. In the picture the dad didn’t need anything to stand on and he already could see the view. While the baby wanted to see the view with two crates, so everyone got to see the baseball/cricket game.

What is the difference between equality and equity and how do each contribute to inclusion (or exclusion)?

The difference between equality and equity is equality is when you guys share the same amount of things but one of you might not be able to have much rights even though you guys share the thing. And equity is when you guys are all equal and no one has more powers than the other one even though one of you might not get it.

Does including all people equally necessarily mean including all people equitably?

Yes, because everyone should have equal amount of rights as  other people because people are the same species as you.

What is an example of a practice you could employ in the school to increase inclusivity?

I don’t really know but when my friends and I play handball people come up to us and ask if they could play, and we always let them play when though they are tough to win against.
