How is the weather?

            In this topic, you will learn how to tell the weather in Spanish. If your going to Mexico, and you need to know what to wear, then you would have to know your weather in Spanish. For example, if today in Mexico was very cold and it was snowing, your would say “Hace mucho frío y está nevando.”

Fracking- Lobbying Assignment #2

Hydraulic frac­tur­ing or “frack­ing” (will explain everything about fracking under the EPA)  is a tech­nol­ogy used to extract nat­ural gas that lies within a shale rock for­ma­tion thou­sands of feet beneath the earth’s surface.


minding companies are really pushing fracking really hard because it put up more pay for them and also jobs. they are now trying to buy off homes. so for example they will pay a person who has land on a minding and they will pay them money so that they can drill on their land. Landowners in shale gas drilling areas have reported foul smells in tap water, and toxic chemicals, such as benzene, have been detected in water from wells near drilling sites. In some cases, tap water can even be set aflame because it is contaminated with volatile chemicals because of shale gas drilling. the federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 exempted hydraulic fracturing from regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act, shale gas drillers don’t have to disclose what chemicals they use. 65 chemicals that are probable components of the fracking fluids used by shale gas drillers. These chemicals included benzene, glycol-ethers, toluene, 2-(2-methoxyethoxy) ethanol, and nonylphenols. All of these chemicals have been linked to health disorders when human exposure is too high.


Water contamination from shale gas drilling could be threatening the health of thousands of people. so they way com pines feel about it all is if you feel as though your water or your air is being polluted then you should call who ever is in charge. this way it can be taken care of as soon as possible. the state feel as though its very important that it gets taken care of asap.

Time

Ricardo Smith Felix Hayes

Before we start you have to know the important numbers first​       

Uno or Una= 1  You say Una when telling time
Dos= two
tres=three
cuatro=four
cinco=five
sies=six
siete=seven
ocho=eight
nueve=nine
diez=ten
once=eleven
doce=twelve
15minutes=cuarto
30minutes=media
Ok first you state the hour then use y to separate the minutes if any.

You say es la when using 1 or una ex. es la una y dos. I just said 1:02
You use son las for numbers 2-12 for hours. So you state hour then use y to connect for minutes 1-30 if any. So it would be either es la una y diez 1:10 or son las tres y ocho 3:08.

Then for minutes 31-59 you state hour ahead so if it 3:45 you say cuatro which is 4.Then connect minutes to hours with menos. Lastly state how many minutes it would take to get to next hour. Ex. if 5:45 then you say sies menos media

If its AM then you put de la manana
Afternoon PM is de la tarde
Night PM de la noche

Amnesty Day Blog Post #1

            I am lobbying for another Amnesty day. A large amount of the immigrants in America are here illegally. However, a lot of them have been living here peacefully, working, and contributing positively in some way to the United States. Though not all illegal immigrants are contributing positively to the US, all illegal immigrants should still be granted citizenship. That way we can crackdown on more of the crimes going on with them because they actually exist in our system. Deportation is always an option as well, but I feel like prejudice is playing a role in this too. It seems as though the government doesn't want anyone else from outside the country to be here. It's already difficult to get into the US legally, so why on Earth would they let illegal immigrants stay?
            I chose this topic for two reasons. The first reason is simply because it's interesting to know that instead of pardoning people for trying to live a better life, they're wasting their lives away trying to find and deport them. Twelve million is a huge number to be trying to get rid of when we have so many other things to worry about in the US. We might as well just give them citizenship. Most of them aren't planning on leaving anyway. The second is reason is because I understand what these illegal immigrants are going through. I have so many family members in Nigeria praying to get their Visa to come over to visit at least. Most of them have been denied. Their intentions are in no way harmful to the US, they are all healthy beings, and can contribute loads of things to the US but for some reason they were all denied. Nigeria is filled with extremely obvious corruption. Though the US is corrupt as well, they're better off here where the corruption is sugarcoated to the max and can still walk the streets without having to see a huge war tank and it’s launcher pointed in their direction. Basically, these people mean no harm. They're not here purposely to break the rules. They're running from something or looking forward to something, that's pretty much it.

The main supporters of my lobbying idea are immigrants. The main opponents of my lobbying idea are the majority of the government (seeing as how they have yet to have another amnesty day). There is a pending legislation dealing with my lobbying idea. It talks about securing the border and granting the immigrant workers legal access to actual jobs.

Lobbying Post #2: Healthier School Lunches

I live in the second council district of Philadelphia, which is represented by Democrat Anna Verna.  As luck would have it, Verna also happens to be serving her third term as City Council President.  First elected in 1999, Verna was the first woman to become the City Council President of Philadelphia.  She has generally won her elections by a wide margin, and examiner.com called her "Philadelphia's Number One Employee."

Verna has a history of fighting on behalf of Philadelphia's low-SES families.  While working on the City Council Finance Committee, she investigated Philadelphia Gas Works and saved endangered programs that helped needy people pay their gas bills.  She also froze tax rates for low-income seniors, and has successfully fought for more funding for police, recreation, fire facilities, and public education, as well as the renovation of housing stock.  She has said that affordable housing for Philadelphians is her "top priority."

Unfortunately, President Verna has decided that at the end of her term as City Council President, she will retire.  For this reason, she may not be the most helpful person to lobby.

I think that Democratic Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey would be more helpful.  He has identified helping children as a top priority.  In fact, he used to teach 5th grade, and at one point he coached 8th grade basketball in inner-city Philadelphia with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps.  This tells me that he cares not just for children but for low-income children in particular.  He has also supported funding for education and children's health, especially for low-income children.  On his website, he expresses support for quality healthcare for everyone, "particularly children for whom health care in the earliest years is so critical."  Most notably, he added an amendment to the Senate health care reform bill that would continue full funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) through 2019.

Since obesity is a huge problem among low-income children in Philadelphia, I think he'd be very much in favor of healthier school lunches.
