Ralph Ad

RALPH FOR LEADER!


Ralph is a big strong being. He's fit for leader because he had the courage to call everyone out together and the initiative to take charge. He is ALWAYS trying to look out for our best interests! He even thought about building a fire to save our own skins, who are we to not be greatful? He has taken it upon himself to bestow upon us the noise of the mighty shell and lead us to safety! He united us, made us shelter, and listened to us all. What does the bumbling idiot Jack do? He goes out for a measly little pig and half cooks it. And he let the fire go out! A ship passed and if Jack can't even do a simple thing like that then how can he be a leader? If it were up to him, We’d be dead! WE’d never get saved and it will come down to the point where he would kill us off one by one if he feels a threat, unlike loving and caring Ralph! He worries about our welbeing and will do his best to get us to safety if he is re-chosen for leader. He will never steer us wrong!

1, 2, 3 en Español!

Numbers in Spanish are definitely different from those in English so I am going to give you a little lesson on numbers 1 to 109.
-all of the numbers in the 10’s place have the same suffix -enta, except for 10, 20, 30 and 100.
-all of the numbers except for the 10’s, 20’s and 100’s go ‘y’ and the singular numeral
Those are the basic need to know things about numbers. If you want to remember them more easily, try getting 1 to 20 down and then the rest of the 1’s and once you know all of those, you will be able to to say all of the numbers in between.


Here is a chart that is sure to help you understand the numbers in Spanish.

The Basics of Spanish Conversation

In this lesson, you will learn the basics of Spanish conversation from hello to goodbye. There are multiple ways to say things that are the same in Spanish including pleasantries.
For example...
-Greeting someone you can say,

‘Hola’ anytime of day

‘Buenos diaz’ good morning

‘Buenas tardes’ good afternoon

‘Buenas noches’ good night

You have to make sure that say ‘buenos’ with diaz and ‘buenas’ with tardes and noches.
-Then, is ‘how are you’ which can also be said in multiple ways.
¿Comò estàs? which you would say with a friend or someone your age
¿Comò està? which you would say to someone older than you
¿Què tal? and you can say that formally or informally
*When someone asks you a question and you are going to say ‘and you,’ you need to be able to respond correctly.
When speaking formally, you will say ‘and you’ as ‘¿Y usted?’ to show respect
When speaking informally, you will say ‘and you’ as ‘¿Y tu?’ to show that you and the person are buddies or the same age.
-Next, is asking someone's name and all you have to say for that is ‘¿Comò te llamas?’
-To respond you can say ‘my name is...’ in 3 ways
Yo soy...
Mi nombre es...
Me llamo...
Then you can refer to the * step to respond if necessary
-’Nice to meet you’ is next and all you have to say for that is ‘mucho gusto’
-Then ‘likewise’ which is ‘igualmente’
-Finally, is goodbye which can be said in more than one way
‘¡Adios!’ - bye
‘¡Hasta mañana!’ - see ya tomorrow
‘¡Hasta luego!’ - see ya later
‘¡Hasta pronto!’ - see ya soon
‘¡Què le vaya bien!’ - have a good one

Here is a comic that should help you understand a basic Spanish conversation.

How to say the months and date in spanish

How to say the months and date in spanish


First you need to know the months

-enero; January

-febrero; February

-marzo; March

-abril; April

-mayo; May

-junio; June 

-julio; July

-agosto*; August

-septiembre*; September

-octubre*; October 

-noviembre*; November

-dieciembre*; December


Notice that the months all start with a lowercase letter, this is because in the spanish vocabulary months begin with a lowercase.


The months with the asterisk(*) are the five most commonly miss spelled months so watch your spelling.


The next thing you need to know is that the number, for example (11th) always comes first. Instead of the date being February 11th, it’s the 11th of February.


Now you need to know the numbers 1-31:


uno=1                       dieciseis=16                treinta y uno=31

dos=2                       diecisiete=17

tres=3                       dieciocho=18

cuatro=4                   diecinueve=19

cinco=5                     veinte=20

seis=6                       veinteuno=21

siete=7                      veintedós=22

ocho=8                      veintetrés=23

nueve=9                    veintecuatro=24

diez=10                     veintecinco=25

once=11                    veinteseis=26

doce=12                    veintesiete=27

trece=13                    veinteocho=28

catorce=14                veintenueve=29

quince=15                 treinta=30


Now we are going to learn how say it all together. First you say:

Es el_______....

This means “It’s the”. Then you would say the number date. So for an example you would say:

Es el once

In english this means “It’s the 11th”


Next you would say:

de_____

This means “of” in english. Then you would say the month. For an example you would say:

de abril

No we will put it all together:

Es el once de abril


This is how you say the date.


Next we will learn how to ask the date:


¿Cuál es fecha de hoy? This means “What’s today’s date?”


¿Qué día es hoy? This means “What was yesterdays date?”


¿Qué día es mañana? This means “What is tomorrows date?”



And lastly, just in case you need to know, here are the days of the week:

lunes; Monday

martes; Tuesday

miércoles; Wednesday

jueves; Thursday

viernes; Friday

sábado; Saturday

domingo; Sunday


The first letter is also lowercase just like the months.

Here is a video of a person trying to tell a delusional person the date:

I hope you enjoyed this lesson and now know how to say and ask the date in spanish.

Schweitzer, Jade, lucid chart, home network

My land area network is connected to everyone within a two block raduis from my house, which is really inconvient, and the reason why my internet is so slow. for some reason, I also don't have wifi at all, so I need to use my neighbors. Cavalier is probably not my favorite internet providers; so I would have to say that if I had my choice I would switch to Verizon. It is really fast, reliable, and it is private- you do not have to share your connection, as apposed to Cavalier. 

On my land line I have both my phone and internet. So whenever you use the house phone the internet stops working, and for some reason java never works on my computer; even though it has been installed three times;so that is a problem.


All in all my internet/phone sevrvice is alright, it could be better; but it could be worse.



An OMG moment was when I figured out that Reseting the modem isn't going to fix everything. An LOL moment was when I noticed how simply complicated the process of getting the internet was.                                                   


Some advice to people who know nothing about the internet I would say; if nothing is loading don't keep clicking it over and over- That makes it load SLOWER!!

LAN Diagram

The internet comes into my house via cable wire because my I.S.P (Internet Service Provider) is Comcast. My internet costs around $50/month. This means that it costs $600/year. I have numerous devices connected to my network through my wireless router. Connected to my network is two laptops, an Xbox and Playstation, a desktop, and a cellphone on occasion.
