Challenge 6 – Digital Footprints

Sorry for doing challenge 6 late. I’m going to tell you about myself on social networks. I always use Facebook and Twitter. I use a different personality in those networks because sometimes some bad people might knows all the secret so I just don’t put my real information. I think other people will not recognize me online because I don’t really set myself as an avatar and I don’t give lot of information. Online, I put my different name and birthdays, I really love to get more friends but I can’t recognize them so I just accept friend requests from friends that I know. I have a fanclub [or a page] in Facebook, it’s about Taylor Swift and I’m really happy and there are lot of fans. For me, sometimes using social networks too much is not good. !!! JUST A WARNING !!!

Challenge 3: Other Languages

How many languages are spoken by the students in your class ? Well, usually we spoke in English or Vietnamese, sometimes Chinese but I don’t really like Chinese language, but in the classroom we have to speak English, no other languages. I agree with the rule because we studied in American School and if we spoke different languages then we shouldn’t go to this school. We might have some activities in class so that everybody can have some fun, example we play musical chair (although it’s not reliable), etc. Our class having lot of fun together.

!!! FUN FUN FUN !!!

Learning Time … Bravery !!! ^oo^

One thing that I have learned outside is how to be brave.

I remembered when I was a kid, I scared of everything and my parents always protected me but mostly I scared of darkness and height, and in my mind until now, I still cannot get rid of that terrible moments until then …

When I was at the age of 12, our school have a field trip to Da Lat. I really enjoyed in this activity and went to Da Lat but the day come, the day carry terrible moment came, that is the activity called “Zip Line”, we have to cross the river by the zip line and it was really high. I was scared and thinking of not join this activity but I don’t know why and how I tried. I challenge myself to cross the river. At first, I closed my eyes but then when I opened my eyes I can feel happiness, I feel like nothing to be scared. After landing back to land, I finally realize that there’s nothing to be scared and there’s nothing that we can’t do.

From that day, I’ve never scare of anything, I always and solve it. This is really important to me because one day, when my parents are not here in this world anymore, I alone will have to protect myself and also my family (If I have but actually I don’t like to have kids).

This is a really good lesson for me in my life. I’m so happy that I did it.

Female Hero: Eleanor of Aquitaine

Hi guys !!! Today I want to talk about Female Hero: Eleanor of Aquitaine (she was the Queen of France). Let’s talk about her life.

-Eleanor of Aquitaine was one of the most powerful personalities of feudal Europe. When she was 15 years old, she married Louis VII (King of France), bringing into the union her vast possessions from the River Loire to the Pyrenees. A few years later when she was 19, she knelt in the cathedral of Vézelay before the celebrated Abbé Bernard of Clairvaux offering him thousands of her vassals for the Second Crusade.

-When she reach to the city of Antioch, she found herself renewed friendship with Raymond, a few years older than her was more interesting and handsome than Louis.

-When Raymond decided that the best strategic objective of the Crusade would be recapture Edessa, thus protecting the Western presence in the Holy Land, Eleanor sided with his view.

-Louis was fixated on reaching Jerusalem. Louis demanded that Eleanor follow him to Jerusalem. Eleanor, furious, announced to one and all that their marriage was not valid in the eyes of God, for they were related through some family connections to an extent prohibited by the Church.

-Louis forced Eleanor to honor her marriage and ride with him. The expedition did fail, and a defeated Eleanor and Louis returned to France in separate ships.

-On her way home, Eleanor was brought the news that her fair haired uncle had been killed in battle, and his head delivered to the Caliph of Baghdad. Although her marriage to Louis continued, and she born him two daughters, the relationship was over. In 1152 the marriage was annulled and her vast estates reverted to Eleanor’s control. Within a year, at age thirty, she married twenty year old Henry who two years later became king of England.

I consider Eleanor a famous female hero to me because she have to pass many danger. She don’t want to get married with Louis but he forced her too so she have to. She was a brave women to do all those thing.

UN World Water Day

Hi guys !!!
Today I wanted to tell you guys about UN World Water Day. Please enjoy !!!

UNESCO’s efforts toward water and food security
In any community, food security exists when everyone has the means to access safe and nutritious food. But with 7 billion inhabitants on the planet, and another 2 billion joining us by 2050, the task of feeding us all will demand worldwide attention. The 4th UN World Water Development Report (WWDR) estimates that we’ll need approximately 70% more food, the majority of which is needed in the developing world.

World Water Day is a celebration of the essential element, one which unites all living beings. In today’s changing environment, World Water Day gives us pause to take stock of previous triumphs and challenges still ahead.

Challenges

The first of many challenges is awareness. For example, despite the prevalence of water scarcity, global diets are shifting to include more red meat and other water-intensive foods.

The World Water Development Report also highlights the immense challenge posed by natural disasters, of which 90% are water related.

Beginnings
The proposal to celebrate World Water Day was first made during the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development held in Rio de Janeiro.

March 22nd become World Water Day.

In 2012, the topic is water and food scarcity.

By 2015, a target date made by Millennium Declaration, we hope half the proportion of people unable to afford or reach safe drinking water.

Thanks, Billy 😀
