100wc (picture prompt)

Goal- to write from a new a different perspective 

Life was simple, not bland, it was just as is. As a young sproutling life was much more exhilarating and new. As the seasons went by I would try and spot each different type of  animals. I remember one summer someone even attached a swing to me. Now to pass the time I try and count my spikes and watch my autumn leaves fall. It’s not as exciting as it used to be, but life goes on. I can tell I’m getting old, now I don’t even curse when a mouse carelessly runs up my roots.

100wc (But I didn’t understand the instructions)

It was a whirlwind of noise and panic. When the bomb fiercely crashed there was a pandemonium.  That’s was until badged men came ushering away and telling us to leave. The men wore an emblem I had never seen, it was a magenta triangle and underneath spelled, la sagesse est le pouvoir. Somehow  I knew what this meant,  Wisdom is power. Suddenly another badged man, not appearing to wear the same logo as the rest ushered me away.

“You Miss are special, do not give in, don’t let them get you.”

But I didn’t understand the instructions. what did he mean?

Btn (lab meat)

Btn (lab meat)

 Facts- Recently there have been some major breakthroughs in the meat industry.  This is pretty big news as Australia ranks in the top 10 countries that eat the most meat. In labs across Australia, they’ve figured how to make meat without having to harm animals. Basically, they take cells from animal blood and a serum full of nutrients and after a short period of time it should eventually turn into muscle tissue and from there it would turn into meat. But it doesn’t come cheap the first one took 400 000 dollars to make, they say that soon that we’ll be seeing this meat in stores. Although some farmers don’t think its fair to call this meat, meat, as they think it not meat as it doesn’t come directly from meat. 

Questions- Who thought of the idea of this type of  meat ?  Why making meat this way work?

Understanding- I know understand that there is more than one way to make meat and also that there is also vegetarian and vegan options for people who want to eat meat.

Online webinar reflection

 

Today all of 5/6 participated in an online webinar about staying safe and secure in the online environment. We looked at different types of scams like; fake friends trying to access your personal info, too good to be true adds and ransomware. We discussed different ways to spot if something may be a scam like:

  • no logo
  • no name
  • spelling or grammar wrong
  • pressure or urgency

Some stats are:

  • 12% of children (3-6s)  have experienced some kind of scam.
  • in 2017 people lost 90 million dollars via scams
  • over 60s are the most commonly scammed

What you can do:

  • download firewall and other similar protection systems
  • always have location/GPS services off
  • only be online friend with people you know and trust
  • think logically and systematically when online

 

 

They recommended that if you encounter a scam to report it and tell a trusted adult. And they also recommended kids helpline.

Goal- to continue on with my previous  piece, while still making this able to be read alone.

 

Please look at the linked 100wc as this 100wc  is continuing on from it;

100wc ( when did it arrive)

 

The last few days had been unusual, to say the least.  I had been exploring the evergreen forest behind my house to find a ship of some sort, at least that’s what it appeared to be.

It was a pandemonium. It was a room of animals.  It defied everything I knew of animals, they interacted playfully as though they could speak to each other, it was like the stories, mice and  lion playing together. I went up to the to pet the luscious tabby when I realised it was made of what appeared to be a substance almost like light. The tabby had a luminous glow, it was although it could speak to me.

Btn ( eco friendly school )

 

Fact- Recently Argentinian volunteers have been busy building the first economically friendly school in Argentina. It  is made with 25 000 kilos of rubish. They used 2000 tyres, 14 000 aluminium cans and 10 000 glass and plastic bottles. It made out of 60% recycled materials. This type of building is called  an earth ship. It sustains itself, which means its produces its own energy and water by collecting rain water and solar panels. 100’s of volunteers spent a month and a half building this school.

Questions- who’s idea was it to create these types of buildings and what is the name of the school? 

Understandings- I know understand that there are so many new and innovative ways to be economically friendly and that it can have a huge impact in the long run.

Goal- to use the prompt in new and interesting way

I was always know as a curious and tenacious kid. Some times for better and sometimes for worse. I was always exploring and wandering the evergreen forest behind my house. Usually the most exiting I would see would be a fox. But today was not the usual. I saw some kind of ship, it look futuristic and not like anything I had seen before. It was  made out of some white substance almost like glass. Many questions flooded my head, where was it from, who made it, when did it arrive on earth. It was in awe, what was this?

THURSDAY 13 OF FEBUARY

I’m plate I live in an old cutlery draw with my girlfriend let me correct myself fiancé and wife to be. Any way I was born in a simple Ikea factory and I have thousands of brother and sister plate  which I’ve never met. And NO just because bowl ( my fiance’)  is from the Ikea factory too doesn’t mean she’s my sister, SHE IS A BOWL.

 

Me and bowl are alike in a ton of ways for example with the new trend of sporks, we think they’re perfect for chunky chicken soups, etc.

Guess what day it is?! Soup ’n’ salad Saturday, my favourite day of the week. Me and bowl get to get used together. Her for the soup, (today its minestrone). I get to get used for the salad (today its Caesar).

 

I just met the nicest ladle Carlana, at dinner, as she was scooping the minestrone. Anyway she is brass with a wooden spoon, and she’s away a lot with her friend Carlos so I guess that’s why I haven’t met her yet.
