Gross 100WC

I just couldn’t eat something so moldy. It’s smell made my nostril hairs flare up, just the sight of it made me cringe. The smell was  like it had been left out in the sun for weeks. There was more mold on it than actual food. I could barely even look at it. It looked as  if people had been stepping  on it for days. It was just gross, no more than gross, obnoxious, foul, nauseating.  It was hard to imagine that it was actually food. I just couldn’t eat that sandwich.

Brief summary-black

 

This video was about how Anh Do fled Vietnam to create a better life in Australia.

–  Anh Do survived two pirate attacks, the pirates dangled his brother over the ship but     in the last minute sparing  his brothers life, his brother actually became the 2005           young Australian of the year.

–  A German ship rescued Anh Do and his family.

–   Once in Australia they were welcomed by two nuns from st Vinnies , they gave them      a bag of clothes, but somewhere in the process getting misunderstood and gave             them boy and girl clothes when in fact they had two boys.

–   Why did the pirates spare Anh Do’s  brother?

–   How long till the German rescued them?

–  I admire Anh Do’s  sense of gratitude and his humble nature, he displayed a positive attitude during tough situations as a child and was always humble and kind.

 

This weeks BTN reflection

This video was about how Australia’s colonies joined to become a federation.

Australia was founded in 1770 by Captain James Cook. The British set up colonies, by 1850 there were 6 colonies, it was like they were different countries they had their own defence forces, their own railway systems and their own trade policy’s . But eventually they decided to join forces, meaning they would have a bigger defence force.

But the colonies with larger populations ( Victoria, New South Whales) were worried they’ed have to give lots money to to the smaller colonies ( Western Australia, Tasmania, Queensland, South Australia) and the smaller colonies were worried that the larger colonies would have too much power. Finally they all agreed that each colony  would have the same amount of senators so the smaller colonies wouldn’t be out numbered.

On July the 9th 1900 great Britain decided to let the colonies go, later on, on 1st of January 1901 they became a federation, the commonwealth of Australia.

The first video is from the aboriginal’s perspective and how the first fleet were taking over the land and in that process bringing strange items/animals (Cow) from England. They thought the white people (ghost people) and their ways were strange.

 

The second was from the English perspective   and how the needed the land to fit all of their convicts. The conditions on the ship were horrible and many would die on the voyage to Australia.
