Los Criminales y Disturbios Políticos


Recientemente, una prisión se cerró en Chile. Los soldados en la prisión eran muy males. No les gustaba derechos humanos. Sin embargo, porque eran soldados, la prisión fue muy buena para ellos. Tenían una piscina, una parrillada, y agua caliente. Fue un lujo. No merecen el lujo.

El presidente Sebastian Piñera decidió cerrar la prisión. Esto es porque la prisión es perfecto. Muy bueno para gente mala. La decisión provocó un alboroto. Mucha gente en el gobierno quieren cerrado y otros no. Hay desacuerdo. El presidente dijo “iqualdad ante la ley” y los prisioneros son los mismos que los demás. 

Todo empezó con una entrevista. Manuel Contreras era un jefe de policía. Ahora está en la cárcel. Se mofó los guardias, y dijo que no hicieron nada. Palabras fuertes de un hombre que no tiene nada para perder. Aunque, ahora perdió su agua caliente. Triste, triste. Muy.

En mi opinión, la prisión deberá ser abierto. Personas más importantes merecen mejor tratamiento, Especialmente en la cárcel. La desigualdad es fantástico y súper importante en una sociedad funciona. ¡Les dan agua caliente, canchas de tenis, los parrillados, y las pascinas! Se ganaban.

Elegí este artículo porque me encantan las prisiones. Cuando creceré, quiero ser un prisionero. Es mi sueño. Siempre estoy interesado cuando personas discuten. Creo que es divertido y comido.

Aprendí mucho nuevo vocabulario como prisión, lujo, igualdad, y muchos más. Aprendí sobre prisiones chilenas y cómo su gobierno funciona. Es muy interesante. Siempre me fascinado con el gobierno y la ley. ¿Es un mundo loco, no?

Pipeline Monologue Project

This project relates to the unit that we are currently studying, the Keystone Pipeline. There has been a lot of debating if it should be built or not. The Keystone Pipeline goes Canada all the way the middle west ( gulf coast region). The Keystone pipeline will have the capacity to transport 830,000 barrels of oil per day to the gulf coast. During this unit I believe that I learned that every decision that the government makes has an effect and can effect other people.

First Monologue:

Characters: Brian


Setting: Westmore School


Plot: Brian hears from another student that there was a protest and people were arrested. Brian then goes to class and asks his teacher about the pipeline and how it affects us.


Wait, say that again?

Who?

Why?

A Pipeline?

I don’t understand. What did they do wrong, why were they arrested?

Hold that thought. It looks like it’s time for class.

It’s ok, I’ll ask my teacher when I get to class.


( Bell Rings, Brian goes to his next class)


Hi Mr.Jones, Yeah I have my homework. Here you go.

Hey Cameron, do you have a pencil?

Uh, but no eraser, it’s fine.

Damn it, Cameron do you have another pencil, this one broke?

Thanks.

Wait, what was the journal entry?

I do pay attention, don’t question me just tell me what the journal entry was.

Finally.


( Brian completes his journal entry and awaits to ask his teacher about the pipeline).


Mr.Jones, can I ask you a question?

Ok, fine I’ll wait.


( Ten minutes have passed)


Mr.Jones, I really need to ask you a question.

I’ve already waited ten minutes!

Fine, I guess I can wait.


( Five more minutes have passed).


Mr.Jones!

I would really like for you to listen for five minutes!


Thank you.


Earlier I heard something at lunch talk about some kind of a pipeline, and


that people were getting arrested.


Why are people protesting against this pipeline?


Tar sands. what’s that?


Dirty Oil?



But isn’t oil already dirty?


Whoa. That sounds like a problem, but how does it affect us, and the


environment?


Pipeline spills have happened, what were the after affects?


Even our bodies have been contaminated by pollution from the dirty fossil fuel?


Honestly how can people live like this, knowing how bad it can affect our


drinking waters, our fresh air?


TransCanada, pipeline company?


But if the pipeline is built, it will create more jobs.


Wait a minute, really?


People have had toxic tar sands transported right through their


hometowns that have had disastrous effect?


How is this even allowed?


People are right to protest against this, they are extracting toxic sand oil


from deep within the earth and beneath our homelands.


Mr.Jones, can I ask you one more thing?


How can we as humans relate to the environment?


Well installing a pipeline isn’t going to help.


Yeah, being more proactive with the environment can help improve our


environmental issues.


Thank you Mr.Jones.


( Bell rings, Brian exits his class)



Second Monologue:

Character: Chris



Setting: Outside the White House



Plot: Chris hears about the protest for the pipeline and goes with some friends. By the end of the protest

police ask to move away from the property but he doesn't and gets arrested.



Man, what a day.


What do you guys wanna do?


What?


Your going where?


Protest?


About what?


Wait really?


They are still going with the pipeline after it destroyed my hometown?


How can the president allow it happen?


Doesn't he know that many people have died from this?


No, no I'm not going to calm down!


He'll yeah we're going to the protest!

Fine, we'll make some Pickett signs, but you better hurry.


( Five minutes later)


Come on already, we're gonna be late!


Uh!

Grab some food quick and let's go!

Ok, let's go.


( Chris and his friends walk to the protest)


Now this is what I'm talking about!

This is protest!

People angry, people giving speeches.

President won't be able to ignore this.


( ten minutes have passed into the protest)


SAY NO TO THE KEYSTONE, SAY NO TO THE KEYSTONE, SAY NO THE KEYSTONE!

Can't you feel the energy you guys?

What, what do you mean?

It's just getting started.

You Guys can go, I'm going to stay here.


( Chris stays at the protest and starts to get out of control)


We say no to extracting, transporting and processing tar sands oil!

What!

No I will not back away!

I am an american citizen, I have the right to protest!

I don’t care, shot me if you have to I’m not moving!

Did you lose your friends and family to toxic sand oils?

The oil that we use killed my loved ones!

How can you stand there and not do anything about, how can our president sit in his little oval office and not do a single thing about it?

No, no!

I’m not moving, arrest me if you have to!


( Chris was arrested after he decided not to move, he is currently at a police station hours later)


I accept all charges.

Phonebloks: el 'smartphone' que durará toda tu vida


Este artículo es acerca de un hombre nombre Dave Hakkens German que creó un teléfono llamado phoneblock que podría durar toda la vida. Se dice que "Phonebloks reducir residuos electrónicos mundial ofreciendo a los usuarios la oportunidad de actualizar las partes (o bloques) de su teléfono celular en lugar de sustituir la totalidad del dispositivo." Me encantaría si mi teléfono podría quedarse para siempre. Sería genial. yo puedo utilizar mi teléfono un montón y que normalmente sólo duran un año. La Phonebloks me ayudaría mucho. Tengo amigos cuyos teléfonos sólo duran un par de meses. Si Phoneblock obras que me costaría mucho dinero. Yo elegido este artículo porque me fue esperaba algo como esto podía suceder. Me gusta saber sobre nueva tecnología. Pero en la articulo Martin Cooper, el inventor del teléfono celular, dijo a CNN : “La razón principal por la que el Phoneblok no llegará al mercado es que costará más, será más grande y pesado, y será menos confiable… para el momento en el que pueda ser llevado al mercado, el problema que generó se habrá ido”. Yo espero phoneblock sea exitosa de todas formas. Se dice que la phoneblock recibió más de 12 millones de vistas en youtube. Doy Dave Hakkens alemán la mejor de las suertes.

Pipeline Monologue Project

In this unit of study, we learned about the Keystone XL Pipeline, and different view points of people and how they felt. Also, along with the unit we learned what a monologue was, and the different type of tips that should make up a monologue. We wrote three monologues incorporating information about the pipeline, climate change, or anything related to the topic of the pipeline and we used the different view points of the people to make our characters unique. I finally learned what a monologue actually was, and it had made a stronger writer. Now, I'm also up to date with some current events.

a) The pipeline is running from Hardisty, Alberta
, and going South to Steele City, running 1179 miles.(TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline)

b) "And I think that's so important, that we need to realize that, first, we don't give rights to nature. Nature has rights... nature's rights and people's rights are allied as one in most places of the world, where, in places like Jaitapur or places like POSCO area, people are saying, "This land is our mother."...It's the most relevant, potent, democratic idea of our times.(Vandana Shiva on "Democracy Now") 


c) The proposed pipeline is about $7 billion, that will carry "tar sands."(PBS on the Keystone XL Pipeline)

d) "The mind shift is that we are a species like any other and that we will not survive unless we place our rights in tandem with the rights of the earth, and then we understand that we come from the earth. Everything we have, everything we eat, everything we touch comes from the earth..."(Maude Barlow on "Democracy Now")

e) "The most remarkable feature of this historical moment on Earth is not that we are on the way to destroying the world -- we've actually been on the way for quite a while..." (joannamacy.org)

What a Shame

(Cruising through the Earth, and abruptly stopped by workers talking about building the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline) Oh, what is this I see? Aww, how cute. Humans just creating machinery, how innovative they are now a days. As long as they aren’t hurting me, and my fellow gods and goddesses.

Wait.. Wait.. What is this I see? It appears to be not what I thought. Refining how much oil, how long? Oh gosh, this is a disgrace. I thought humans were smarter and eco-friendlier than this! (angry, thrashes arms which starts an earthquake) This is MY land! I am the greek goddess, Gaia! Earth is my home, earth is my place to be! All these people in the world just think they ought to trash an item on the ground, dig up trees, hurt the environment, and never think twice about this finite world! (Exasperated, rapid hand gestures) All these thriving people with their dirty jobs, do people not know who I am? Do people not know thee consequences? The ignorance the human race has come to, yet I still take so much pity on them. They all rely on me, and soon I will die if things don’t change.

Through all the pains the people have put me through, the worst of all has to be when people extract oil, dig, or plant harmful machines from and into my bones. This pipeline is taking up 1179 miles of my body! The oil in the ground is meant to stay there, not have 830,000 barrels refined every minute of every day. On a deep mind level, these people know it is wrong but they do not care because they will die out before I die out. (sighs) I am living too, yet they all forget. This climate does not just keep getting hotter by itself. With help from those humans, it is and shall just get worse. These humans think the earth is just “naturally” getting higher, and there’s only some global effect to it. You are polluting my husband’s air, Uranus, this is not fair!

Am I just some unknown creature these people don’t care about it? I can feel the pain, with each drill. Oh, I am light headed from all the pressure. I can not stand this anymore. Irrational thoughts of these people have me feeling so low, and I don’t feel so well. The ignorance is too much to bare!


The Pipeline is a NO

(Waits around, pacing in her room on the cell phone) “Hey… Hello Betty? ...Yeah hi! ...No no, I’m just checking in. (Uses hand gestures)It’s friday, and I know we usually talk on Monday’s at 2, but I just couldn’t wait. I’ll even pay you an extra hours worth. Yeah I know you’re busy, but I promise this is important. Just give me some time... Really? ...You’re going to do that for me? Thanks, thanks, you’re the best! I just need to get this off my chest.”

“I know I keep dwelling on this same topic, but I can’t help feeling sorry for myself. I’m all alone, with just my kid. He means the world to me, but every time I look into those ocean deep, blue eyes, it just reminds me of his father. It’s hard enough I can’t keep a steady job, and without money I can’t provide. (Angry) No. NOO. That’s not an option. There is no way I’m going to apply for a job at Keystone XL. (exasperated)You’re supposed to be the supporter here, and you go out and suggest some crap like that? This is the whole cause of my depression! Life is grabbing me at the throat and I can never catch a break. Oh, all of a sudden you’re busy? Oh I see how it is, Betty. Okay, fine, whatever. Bye(Hangs up phone).”

“(Mutters to herself, pacing around the room again)What a shitty thing to say. Suggesting I work for the pipeline. It’s like she doesn’t know me… Well, maybe I overreacted. Oh god… Maybe I should call back and apologize. Yeah yeah, that’s what i’ll do(dials Betty’s number again and lays on bed hearing the constant ring).”

“Hey Betty… Okay, I just wanted to apologize. I’m not in a good state of mind, ya know (hand gestures) with my husband and the pipeline. I just, well, umm, let me just start from the beginning. You know I was truly in love with my husband, and one day he was just gone. I mean, when you suggested working for the pipeline, it just shocked me you would suggest that as a job. I mean I know I need the money and this pipeline is supposedly going to create at least 20,000 new jobs, … but, well I’m just not sure. The Keystone pipeline is terrible for the environment, it’s ugly, and corrosive to this planet. And number one, it killed my husband, outta the blue. I don’t want to subject myself to that, what if I die? What if I die and my precious son has nowhere to live but an orphanage?  My son needs his mama, without a dad, he’s already going to have it tough. Yes, money is a high demand right now, I just don’t see how I can work for this company when even while they’re working, they know it’s harmful for the earth.”

“(Turns to lay on stomach)I just need money though… Well I feel like I’m just talking to myself at this point. I sound like a snob, saying ‘I need money, I need money.” Is this my last resort? Is there any other option for me? I mean, I know I said there was absolutely NO way I would try and work for this company, but now I feel like I can only do this. I guess I should try and apply. I mean I don’t have to take the job. When I hang up, I’m gonna call TransCanada. I don’t have to do my husband’s job, I could just be a coordinator, no danger at all. Alright, I’m probably taking up all the room in your voicemail box. Just call me back, okay? Monday at 2 again? Alright bye, see ya.”


Just a Regular Republican

“(Points finger) You know Molly, ever since Obama became president I thought some of his views were right on. All he wants to do though is make this economy clean, and protect this environment. (Moves hand in a circular motion) I get it, I know, we should protect the Earth we live on but he’s the president for Christ’s sake! Shouldn’t he realize making money is tough now a days and you got to play it rough? Money is money, there aren’t as many jobs due to this shit hole of an economy, and this making of the pipeline will supply jobs! How great is that? (Spreads arms out wide) 20,000 new jobs, and you’re telling me that’s not a good thing? Molly… c’mon, look at it right now, in the present. This pipeline could be the next big thing! It could boost our economy! Now we don’t have to rely on other foreign oil as much as before! All those points against it aren’t set in stone, such as if it leaks, or farming jobs could be lost. Those are (Quotes) “What ifs…” or “Could bes…” (excited)Yeah yeah, I know I just said it could be the next big thing, but still!

I’m just so frustrated with Obama and his term. I voted for him again because I thought he would make some substantial change! Molly! Are you even listening? We live in Texas, and I have yet to see where his views and actions have taken us. This pipeline will be for the betterment of all to whom it concerns. Everyone out here who grows crops, they won’t be affected as much! There are even 57 special safety conditions to be incorporated with the making of the pipeline! Should I write a letter stating my frustration? ...No? Well how else am I going to put in my view points?

Ya know, this country needs some change, and how else will this country run if we just keep putting up with democrats in office? I’m certainly a qualified republican! My facts are true, and I’m over 35! Plus, I was even born here! ...Don’t give me that look, Molly. You know I love good debates and public speaking! How hard could it be? (upset)...You’re really not going to support your own husband? Fine, whatever. I’m just going to follow my dream. These people need to hear from an average republican, living the everyday life as a business man. All I want to do is make a change, to change their minds into supporting the pipeline. This is a good thing, trust me.”

Pipeline Monologue

In the early part of the year in World History, we are learning about the Keystone Pipeline XL. We are learning about the benefits and the consequences that the pipeline could bring. The pipeline would be a extension from the already existing Keystone Pipeline, built by Trans Canada. The project is proposed to create around 20,000 jobs for American but only about 30 people will be able to keep those jobs one the pipe is built. The 7 billion dollar project is also projected to make a total of 20 billion dollars. The only problem with this is by building this pipeline we now have a opportunity to damage the land beyond repair.


                                            Facts About Keystone Pipeline XL
1. Has a projected inservice date of 2016

2. Creates green house gasses
3. Would contribute to climate change
4. Run from Alberta to refineries in Texas
5. Cost 7 billion dollars to build



Monologues


Presidents Speech


Were set to go live in 30 seconds and i still don't have my water.   (Clears throat ) 5 years ago, a friend came to me and asked me to read something over for him. SO I told him sure and kept on with my day. About a month later my schedule allotted me some time to read over this document presented to me from my northern friends in Alberta, ( Quickly Clears throat ). It was a proposed document to extend a pipeline that runs through the great plains of our majestic country and you know what I did. ( quick sarcastic laugh ). Well when I got back to him a couple of months later I told him its plausible. I mean why not right, creates jobs for our depriving economy. Why not, if it brings in millions of dollars more in tax money. I don't see a problem with that I stated. But being the democracy this is, I figured before I made any big decision I would talk it over with the people. And when I mentioned the idea of the pipeline expanding, I got mixed reactions. Reactions of joy and reactions of sadness, reactions of hatred and of approval. So I got back to this friend again and told him that we as a group of united people will talk over the proposal another time and as soon as we came to a definite decision I would let him know. Here we are 4 years later and still have not made up our minds. Maybe because we have been focusing on bigger things such as the war and funding the troops, but I feel we have waited long enough. We as a people need to decide, make a decision. Weigh the benefits and consequences of our choice. Should we go with the benefits we see beforehand. Or should we take a chance with the environment. Well personally I’d love to call my friend back and say sure, you can start building tomorrow, but I’m not sure that can happen. I am not sure we want to damage the environment beyond repair by taking a risk a chance a leap of faith. I don't think thats what we should do America, but at this point its not up to me its up to you.        



The Alberta News



“Hi, my name is Jeff Hankrich and I am reporting to you live at the building of the Keystone Pipeline XL. (walks around trying to get a better idea of what's going on) Here at the scene, there are hundreds of people, from corporate executives to angry mobs blocking the construction site. I mean it’s just ridiculous out here. To get a better view, we’ll go inside the crowd to find out exactly why all of these people are here. ( whispers “pss come on” for the camera man to follow ). Here with me today is Ms. Cindy Lou who traveled all the way from right here in our beloved city of Alberta, Canada to tell us exactly what is happening here. ( Says I see every now and then ). Well folks this is just in, Ms. Cindy Lou told us that the oil executives have lied to us and don't care about the safety of the pipes, they just want the money. Wow, I don't know who to trust anymore. Lets go inside enemy lines and get there take on the statement made by American Cindy Lou. Ok folks were here with Russ Girling to get his views on the matter. Hello Russ, I would like to know what you think on the whole pipeline idea.... Well you heard it here first on Alberta's number one news station Transcanada CEO Russ Girling feels these reports are outrageous and says we need to keep our oil out the middle east. Well I don't know about you but that idea sounds pretty good to me. We’ll keep you updated on the situation happening here but remember, protecting the environment is key to being able to live here for years to come.

 

The Protest


Hello chief,

Sargent Buchanan told me that I was supposed to come here to fill out a report on the surveillance of the protest.. Thank you sir... do you have a pen I can borrow... I appreciate it... Ok so here is what happened today, the construction workers came to the sight as planned. And protesters threw themselves on the ground the the vehicles were supposed to be working. ( Sighs ). I just don't stand the inconsideration of those people. Just not too much goes on in this here. Where was I sir,... thanks, so like I was saying, the trucks were there as planned and these protestors just threw themselves on the ground ground making sure the workers could not get through. At this point Sargent Buchanan called in for back up but since its such a small town he found out we were the only troopers in the state of Nebraska. So he pulled out his megaphone and started shouting orders, (takes a sip of tea) and by that point every last one of them put there hands in front of them as if they were saying arrest me. But as we both knew there was not enough prison vacancies in the state to arrest these people. So we thought starting the truck would surely scare them away. But we were wrong. Its like they were fighting to save something. It was deeper than just some pipe being built. It brought all different types people throughout the state together. Its like this all had a meaning now. They were fighting for what they call home. They didn't want to see the land destroyed by the chemicals running through that pipe. Now I see why they did it, I understand how they felt. After all they need food and shelter just like the rest of us. So you see chief, I feel we should let them protest them fight, they are standing up for themselves.. ( takes pause ) they are protecting the only thing they know as home.

Pipeline Monologue Project

​This unit we learned about the Keystone Pipeline XL. We learned about the different impact it will have on our environment and economy. The pipeline would increase tax revenue and create thousands of jobs. However in order to build this pipeline you would have to dig up the ground which could cause a change in the environment. 

  • Creates 9,000 American jobs
  • Dig up ground
  • Lower gas prices
  • Tax revenue increase
  • Obama has final say

Monologue #1: I Got My Job Back

*Enter TransCanada Headquarters

Hi,  I’m here to see the CEO of TransCanada. No, I don’t have an appointment. He called me this morning asking to see me in his office by 10 a.m. Can you page him or something because you’re giving me a really hard time right now. Yes, thank you !

*Takes a seat

*Pause

*Direct to Girling’s office

Hi Mr. Girling, nice to see you again. Good, good we’ve been struggling ever since I got laid off 2 months ago. Yeah, you should be sorry shouldn’t you. You know I had been working for this company for 6 years and you decided to lay me off. Why me? I loved this job more than anyone. I’ve worked for you for 6 years; 6 years and you just leave me and my family in the dirt like that. I think that was very selfish of you, but no hard feelings right. That’s great and all but what does the company receiving more money and benefits have to do with me? For real? Are you kidding me, I’m getting my job back. 

You’re a really good man Mr. Girling. You know I’ve been going to church, because I had all this free time because you laid me off but besides that. I’ve been going to church and I learned that if you put God first you won’t come in last. I mean I want to just kill you and I hated God and I hated myself at one point for believing in him. Losing my job wasn’t the only reason for my madness though. After I lost my job my wife had to pick up another job to support my family. Do you know how that feels? To be a man and not be able to support your family? My wife and children don’t even look at me the same way. Daddy used to be their hero and now, ugh now, I don’t even know what they think of me. My son had to pick up a job after school. He’s not even doing as well as he used to because he has no time to study. The electric and gas was cut off about a week ago and I’m just so happy. I know it doesn’t seem like it but I am and thank you. My children only eat two meals a day and one of them comes from school. Thank you, thank you. Words can’t explain how I feel. Thank you!


Monologue #2: What about my crops?

*Farmer walks outside to face news cameras

Get off of my property, you are not allowed to be here. You want answers huh? Well, I’ll answer questions from only one news channel.

*Newscasters yell and raises hands

Fox 29. 

*News channel and Farmer enters house

My name is Jimmy and I farm for a living. When all my crops are done growing I go to local grocery stores to sell my produce. There is no other way for me to make money. It’s not even all about the money, I love farming more than anything in this world. If I lose that I really have nothing to live for. My mom and my dad died a few years ago. My wife left with my children. Farming is my only purpose. 

Well’ it’s not that I really have a problem with the pipeline. I’m all for more jobs and all but the time they would take digging up the ground and all I could be growing my crops. If I don’t grow, I don’t have money to pay my bills. They would also be digging up my property which in the long run could ruin my land. To prevent them from building the pipeline I’m going to chain myself to the tree on my property. Arrested? How can they arrest me? It’s my tree, I helped my dad plant that tree when I was 7. I’d be damned if they even tried to tear it down. It’s also on my property. I paid this house off and I should have a right in this. You know what, I’m done! Get out of my house. I said no more goddamn questions, now get the fuck out of my house.


Monologue #3: Pros and Cons

*Skype call opens up with Oprah

Hi Oprah, again I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there with you today.  My name is Sarah and I live in New Jersey. Well, I’m here on Skype with Oprah because I want everyone to know about the Proposed Keystone Pipeline. It’s 1,179 miles long and runs from Canada to the US. It was in operation as of 2010 and parts of the pipeline are already built. It was however declined once already. The pipeline would cost $7 million and would carry more than 2.6 million of oil and natural gas. Because Obama has the final say in this the pipeline can’t be built without his permission. That’s just some background information but here are the pros and cons. The proposed pipeline would create 9,000 jobs and create $585 million in taxes. We wouldn’t have to rely on other countries as much. Pipelines are the safest way of moving fossil fuels from one place to another and they are more efficient. TransCanada, (the company that’s supposed to build the pipeline) has one of the best safety records in the industry. However in order to build this pipeline you would have to dig up the earth. Environmental and personal safety also comes into play. If there were to be an oil spill it would ruin the lake in Nebraska. Many people rely on this lake for food. We just recovered from an oil spill in Gulf Coast and we can’t afford another one. The people would be in an uproar. Trust me I know how it feels to recover from something only to have something bad to happen again. It’s actually very recent, we finally recovered from super storm sandy and now the boardwalk burned. I know it’s very tragic isn’t it. But enough about New Jersey, if something tragic was to happen the people would be devastated. There are more pros out weighing the cons but in the long run this will only hurt us.

Oh, this pipeline doesn’t affect me whatsoever because I’m in New Jersey. The states that the pipeline is being run through are; Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, and Texas. Uh, that’s basically all I have to say. Thank you so much for having me, I appreciate it. Okay. bye bye.

Pipeline Monologue Project

​I learned a lot about the environment and human behavior in this unit. I liked learning about all this stuff because i find it interesting. We definitely have enough information as a class to be experts on the pipeline. 

850 miles (1,368 km) in the United States (transcanada)

"This pipeline will allow Canadian and American oil producers more access to the large refining markets found in the American Midwest and along the U.S. Gulf Coast." (transcanada)

"require 9,000 skilled American workers" (transcanada) 

"With more than 60 years of experience building and operating pipelines, TransCanada has successfully reclaimed thousands of acres of native rangeland on pipeline rights of way throughout North America." (transcanada)

"Despite growing domestic oil production, both the U.S. Energy Information Administration and the International Energy Agency have forecast that the U.S. will continue to import 3.5-to-7.5-million barrels per day into the year 2035, to meet American demand." (transcanada)

Monologue One (Secret Service Agent)- 

(Secret service walked into his house late but just in time for dinner. He sat down at the table with his family.)

Boy have I had a hell of a day. All these hippie weirdos have been outside of the white house for days now. There hooligans! I can't stand them! They think they can do whatever they want! Not on my watch! So this hippie thought it would be a good idea to walk onto the White House lawn and run for the president! So of course naturally doing my job I ran at him and tackled him. Then he tried to fight me for tackling him! The nerve of this man! We had to evacuate the president and go threw all these security measures which made me late to come home. I don't know why this pipeline is such a big deal to them. Who the hell cares? Well anyway what's for dinner? Ohh pizza my favorite! 
 
Monologue Two (Pipeline Worker)-
(worker walks onto site and has a conversation with another worker about all the controversy)

Ya know I really don't know why people make such a big deal about this pipeline. Were making a decent living right now. I just really need the money for my family right now. I’m professionally trained. I went threw the training program like everybody else here and got certified to work. Everyone thinks were gonna mess this up. Do you get what I’m saying? I mean people make mistakes and stuff but I feel like we can't. They'll fire us and just replace us at the drop of a dime. Well, I guess we should get back to work before we actually get fired. See ya later.

Monologue Three (a fox living near the site of the pipeline)  

(The fox trots along, past the pipeline looking for a new home)

I can't believe these stupid workers would tear up my home and put this worthless piece of metal on top of it. I was living here peacefully until they ruined it. I had such a beautiful home. Now there going to destroy the earth and possibly spill oil all over the continent. WHats wrong with this human species? Why would they want to do such bad things? I just don't understand humans. I have no home, no food, no water and all they're worried about is this pipeline. Not the safety of all the other species in this world. Well, I guess its time to start over somewhere else.
