Home Network, Johnson

After doing these assignments I learned more than what I already knew about my home network. One of my old major hobbies was competitive gaming. Since I was to young to actually travel and compete in LAN tournaments, I had to compete in online tourneys instead. Which would basically mean I needed to have an amazing connection to avoid things like lag or framework switches in game. I made it clear to my dad xfinity was clearly not going work for me because it was just simply to slow, and nearly impossible for me to pull host connection. More or else I learned that Fiber optic cables were just better in every way. Another things that I also picked up from this class was the placement of my router. After hearing the wifi/connection falls down I immediately moved my router from the basement to my third floor which is pretty much where technology stops in my house.

​My L.A.N consists of my laptop, printer, and cellphone. I have Clear Network as an Internet service provider. During the proccess I was shocked about the price of the internet. Sometimes I forget that the internet costs money. I would tell anyone with an ISP to make sure they make their own acceptable use policy.

​My home network is provided by Verizon which connects to my basement which is connected to a combination of a modem/router.What I learned about networks is that it happens so fast it happens in seconds.I learned that theirs multiples things that happen in the the process of getting into a one website,but it all happens in seconds.I also learned that in the process of getting into a website that it throws certain things out and passes the good things only.What I would like to tell people about a home network is that you should start planning on knowing everything that is connected to your modem or router who's you internet service provider how much do you or you parents pay a month.

My ISP is Comcast. I have a COAX wire that connects from my basement to my modem/router which connect to my PC by a Ethernet wire. My modem router provides me with wireless network and these devices are connected to it: 4 Phones, 2 laptops, a PS3, a TV, an Ipod, a printer and a tablet. An OMG moment was when my parents told me the bill that they pay for the internet. It is too expensive!!!

My home network is pretty simple,I have xfinity wifi. the coax cable leads to my router is in the main bed room,then it connects to my devices inside the house,which are phones, tablets, computers, printers and game systems. Yes i did have an OMG moment because i had no idea how the internet work,i've found out a lot from the internet video ms.hull showed us. For one ive learned how much money my internet is per year, i also learned how the wifi connects to my devices.I would tell you to find out your internet information because it pays off to know,it really helped me.

My home network is very fast. It works very well but sometimes comcast goes down. I have many things connected to my home network such as 7 computers 2 ipads and 4 iphones. I did not learn much about home networks. I learned that I have a coax cable. If your home network stops working I turn off my motem router then I turn it back on.

My local area network is xfinity it is connected to my phone, three laptops, my printer, my blu ray player, and my ps3. What I learned about networks is that everything is connected. My OMG moment was when i found out anything you put on the internet can be found again. i think everyone should know anyone can see your search history

2. My L.A.N connects from my ISP, that gives me internet in my house. Our ISP give internet to our modem that connects to our router through a coax wire. Our router gives wifi for our house. On the wifi, there are 5 phones, 3 laptops, 3 tablets, a mac mini, an xbox one, and a ps3. 

3. I learned that there are many different things that has the be processed before you can get access to a website. It takes less than a second for it all to process which is really fascinating to me. I didn't realized it had to go through lots of stages to access something on the internet. 

4. I would tell people that each ISP/Home network have rules also. If they don't follow the rules that are given they can be in big trouble. I would also remind them that whatever they upload on the internet will never be deleted even if you delete the file on your device.

My Local Area Network includes three cellphones, an iPad, and three laptops (Mac laptop, Dell chromebook, Toshiba). My internet service provider is Verizon, and our bill is $125 every month, which is $1500 every year. Our internet comes from my living room computer desk through an ethernet cable from a modem router. It then provides wireless internet for our devices.


My OMG moment was when I learned about the internet, and networks in the videos we watched in class. They described and showed us how the websites and urls send through all those packages, and firewalls to want we search up in just seconds. 

I think that people should know how to their internet comes and how their ISP provides wifi for them. Not just that, but that people should know that wifi and internet doesnt come just like that, your parents pay for it and you should use it wisely.

1.The devices that are connected to my internet connection are a 3 iphones 5s, 1 iphone 6, 1 desktop, 2 Xbox 360s, 2 Xbox ones and 1 pad.

2. My OMG moment was when we learned how things travel through the internet very fast, yet having to go through so many different trails, and what amazed me most was how how fast the internet can fix problems that occur and still run fast.

3. Something I would tell someone about having an internet ISP/Home network is to be careful about what you do and don't think that you are always 100% safe while on the internet.

​Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection. Take this from the 1st assignment, when I sent you home to list the parts of your network.
-One family desktop
-My PC
-Chromebook
-Phones

Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if so write about what you learned.
- It was interesting to learn that data could travel by light to cross great distances quickly.

What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?

- I think it's important to know how much power the ISP's already have, and what they've done and are doing to attain more.

2. The internet is transported to my ISP which is Comcast. By a coaxial wire, its brought into my house in my computer room. By another coaxial its brought to my motor and router which gives internet to my printer, iPhone, iPod, iPad, laptop, computer, televisions, and speakers.

3. I learned how complex the internet actually is and how a 10 minute YouTube video describing how i get my emails is done in about a second in real time. I also learned how i the internet is brought into my house and why my service provider has all those terms and conditions.

4.i would tell them that receiving the information online is a lot more complex then they think.

My Internet Service Provider (ISP) is Earthlink DSL, and we pay $39.95 a month ($488.40 a year). My internet comes in by the front of our basement, and arrives at the living room by a phone wire. This connects to the modem and router we have. From here, wifi connects our devices through the router. All of our internet-using devices that use wifi are four smart phones (I, my parents, and our student Jasmine), Jasmine's iPad, our printer, our Roku box, the family computer, my computer, and Jasmine's computer. I learned a lot about how we get internet to our devices, because I didn't know which things provided what services and the chain of how internet gets to things. The most interesting moment was when we drew our Home Networks after looking at them at home, because you see how all of those things work together and in what order they go in. Now I know how I actually get internet which I didn't know before and I think it's good to know it. I think what I would tell other people about having an ISP/Home network is to know how it works and make sure you look for affordable options! All home networks work similarly, and you don't want to get robbed of your money! Be a smart internet buyer:)

1. My home network is Xfinity ( comcast ), I have a coaxe wire that connects everything to my moms room, and i have a modern router. The wifi connects to our smart tv"s, cellphones, laptops and, our xbox.
2. I learned that internet is a lot more complicated then I thought it was. I used to think it was just a magical presence an I didnt really care about finding the truth. 
3. I would tell other people about the different types of wires they could have because I didnt know that so Im sure a lot of other people dont know about it either.

Climate Change Monologue Project

Part I: In our World History class we are learning about climate change, and how it affects the world and things of that nature. My partner, Ona, and I made our monologues from the views of different people. My first monologue is about a girl who does a presentation about climate change to her 7th grade class. She shows how she feels about climate change. My second monologue is about a man in Australia who has a dream about viewing climate change. He learns how climate change affects him and other people.
Part II:
1st Monologue

Hi, My Name is Mona


I can’t believe I’m about go up in front of the class. Someone always getting picked on for doing things like this. Hi, my name is Mona  I know most of you probably don’t know me. I’m up here to show you guys my presentation on climate change. I feel like it’s important that children my age should know about climate change. I say this because when we grow up, we will already know about climate change and we can help make India get better when climate change happens. Droughts are happening. People are dying. House are tearing apart. What if this happened to you? What if you lost your home? Your family? Your food? Your everything? These things are what kids our age take for granted. And I feel like I should let people know about this. Furthermore, there are many effects of climate change. For example, year after year, the Baghmatti River fills up with rain and rushes down from the Himalayas to small villages and tears down people’s homes.  It pulls away cattle and goats, it knocks down many mud houses, and it killed a large number of people. This made many people sad, like Pavan Devi. His 19-year-old son, Vikas Kumar, was swept away by a fast moving stream, when he went to a communial toilet in the fields. In Dhanaur, for almost three months of monsoon, everyone’s lives depend on the water’s mercy. The ones left save food and grains and save firewood, to prepare for this yearly calamity. The poor people beg for food to borrow and eat, and they camp out on higher in tents that are made of cement bags. Now, because of the monsoon and climate change, these people live differently.  I think we should make a change, by helping these people and other people. We should come together as one and help each other! Thank you for your time.



2nd Monologue

Dream



All I see is darkness. Where am I? This doesn’t look like Australia. Is this Australia? Where’s my wife? Where’s the rest of the factory workers? It’s so hot here! (Rubs eyelids) Oh, everything is looking clearer now... I can see better now. And there’s my beautiful wife Olivia. She’s fanning herself. Olivia! Olivia! I wonder why can’t she hear me. It’s starting to get really hot again. I realized, she can’t see me, so I guess I’ll go see what the boys are up to.

(Jack walks away. He walks to the factory) Whew! It’s cold. (Looks to the other men) And there’s the boys! (Waves trying to get their attention) Oliver! Isaac! Henry! (Looks I guess they can’t hear me either. I wonder why? (Jack notices that Oliver, Isaac, and Henry are wearing winter coats and are shivering as they try to work He looks away) Now it’s cold! (Shivers) The weather has been very strange today. The climate is changing like crazy today! (Jack walks out of the factory and onto the street and sees two homeless men) Do you have any money you can spare mate? The weather is crazy out here! No! (Jack runs away. He looks up to the sky. He notices that it is cloudy) Today has not been a good day. Olivia doesn’t talk to me. Oliver, Isaac, and Henry won’t talk to me either. Can this day get any worse? (Jack hears a roar of thunder and it starts to rain) Just great. Really great. Thank you mother nature! Thank you for being hot, and cold, and rainy! (Jack puts his head down and starts walking forward) Jack! (Jack picks his head up and looks at the person speaking  Don’t worry Jack. It’s just climate change. You’re noticing how the climate is changing. Also, this is a dream. (Olivia dissapears. Jack sits up on his bed. He looks to his left to see his wife Olivia. He kisses her on her left cheeck and runs outside. He sees his group of friends from the factory. He sees the 2 homeless men and gives them 20 dollars) Here! Have a good day mate! You don’t know what you have til it’s gone.










3rd Mononlogue

Robby, 17 year old boy  (Sjögren's syndrome, Smart.)


Human Health

“Breathing”



Good Morning,  How's everyone feeling ? I’m here to talk about the climates impact on health. Some of you may walk away with the feeling of wanting to help, others with the feeling why do I care. But the goal I hope to accomplish is only making you aware of it. But Let me tell you a little about who I am.  My name is Robby I was diagnosed with Sjögren's syndrome when I was 6 years old, I am now 17. It was a shock to everyone, because no one had the syndrome in the family, so it wasn’t hereditary. At first we thought I had lupus, but with a serious amount of other tests ran we discovered the real thing was Sjögren’s Syndrome. I used to feel like an outcast, I was different, I couldn’t do what other kids did. The simple things I couldn’t do. for a while my  best friend was an oxygen mask. When I started to get better and regularly take my medicine, I started to meet people with the same disease. In school, I had more confidence and I actually began to join different groups. I started to invest my time in environmental science. It became a hobby. **You have any water ? Thank you, my mouth was a little dry. I’m sorry class, Okay good, I’ll continue. Around the time of the spring that just passed, I started to experience a more intense pain. Every so often I would have this feeling, my heart would  run a mile a minute. At any moment it felt like it would burst. My chest would tighten like a fist beginning to close. I’ve never took anything for granted, because that feeling burned in my chest every time I did. Of course my parents and I  were worried so I went back to the doctors. I was switched to different and stronger medicines. One of my doctors mentioned the change in my health might be due to the environmental changes. I was very book savvy and already involved in science so I did some research. I found that climate change affects those with respiratory issues and allergies. Along with asthma, food borne, insect borne, and heat related issues. The respiratory and allergy related issues applied to me, so I did further research. The spring pollen season was happening earlier and lasting longer. For example, Ragweed is a popular flowering plant and it was shown that the amount of pollen production is increased during this spring season. Tests on ragweeds also showed that high carbon dioxide concentrations and temperatures increased the amount. This not only told me that I needed to take my medicine, but told me there are high carbon dioxide levels. This carbon dioxide is causing climate change and pollution is due to carbon dioxide emissions.  **Gasp, I just said a lot . Everyone with me ? Kinda ? No ? Okay. So all this carbon dioxide we’re producing is polluting our air and effecting things that we may not know about. Which is our health. I thought this needed to be shared to other people, as young children we may feel like we can’t make big changes. But we sometimes fell to realize the little things we do can contribute to the big. Awareness is change, people’s knowledge and views change due to awareness. Twice a week I visit schools like yours and find kids who are interested in taking apart in the this movement. Thank you for your time. A you all have been a great audience. ** Sigh of  relief* Okayyyy mom, I’ll be down in a sec. I Guess I better run through it again after dinner so I’ll be ready for the big day tomorrow.

3.) I did when you showed us the videos on what happens when you upload a page. I was like that is a complex process and it looks like it can mess up quick. It only happens in a second too, that blown my mind.

4.)Your Internet Service Provider can slow down certain websites in order to stop other companies from stealing their customers. Also, you can set up rules for you home network.

  • One Nintendo 3DS
  • One Wii

I didn't have an OMG moment, as my father is the only one who knows anything about our internet connection.

What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network? 

I would say that they should make sure that you keep an eye on your bill for any unauthorized changes on your bill in contract. My parents had this situation happen and it isn't fun.

1.) All the devices on my internet connection are 5 iPhone's, 1 iPad, Printer, and PC. My ISP is Comcast. 
2.) My OMG moment while learning about how the internet works is when we watched the video and it describes the million things that happen when you search something on the internet or send a message and at the end they said it only took a couple of seconds. 
3.) What I would tell other people is that you shouldn't take the internet for granite. The internet is full of crazy things, you're lucky to have access to it, and you should try to understand it.
