- The Dynamics of Neighborhood Change in Brewerytown, Philadelphia
Summary- So When I reading this Korobin rob was giving his report on a neighborhood named Brewerytown. and to pretty much sum up his whole article on it was that it was doing really poor so they pretty much abounded it and the city stop working on it for the moment until over time the city budget brought back enough to get most of the house back. But by the time this happened. most of the Neighborhood had a different type of local and they where happy with the way it was. so he was trying to find out is it the right thinking for the city to take it back but it isnt that great looking.
Spot crime is like a Neighborhood crime watch that looks at all of the crimes that goes on in each Neighborhood in philly. And that helps a lot because when we are traveling we can look at the really bad Neighborhoods that people talk about so we can look at the when the changed that first happenedduring the time period. as it shows on the charts.
Southwest Center City is the neighborhood bounded by South Street, Broad Street, Washington Avenue, and The Schuylkill River. It's an area sometimes called South of South or Graduate Hospital they are pretty much are trying to clean up the city over all. they see phily as one whole neighborhood over all. WCC is growing at an amazing pace. Everywhere you look, new row homes, new corner cafes, restaurants, and bars are adding to the amenities that have long characterized this neighborhood. All of these things make Southwest Center City a great place to live and work it involved with other program like the ymca also.
This neighborhoods talks about the origins of what philly was like before what was going on in the city. they were going into detail of each place in the city was like at one point.It was giving me a ideal of what it places were like. I think that this could be helping me a lot with notes at brings me up to speed with it time era.
This has to be one of my best scores so far because this has a data base telling me everything that from tribe times to the current times on what locals where like back then. it gives you what life has changed for people living in center city and events that happen during that neighborhood. if it could talk about crimes happening during that time that could also really help me with this capstone a lot more.
During the city history a neighborhood name appeared many times in our sources. Bridesburg, for example, first appeared on the 1839 map we consulted and then reappeared in 15 other of our sources up to the present day. Logan, which many Philadelphia-neighborhood aficionados think of as old, appeared in none of our early sources. Of course, Logan is in this list, as are truly esoteric neighborhoods. it was mapped out all around the city. old building that people are trying to fix to stop hight people from buying it
This lady named Tara clapper is talking about her own personal history with north philly because growing up he school and her neighborhood was all she had. Crime rates and murder where up really high so she talks about how it wasn’t really safe for her to do anything out side. North Philly was historically a more prosperous area. Today, some sections of this neighborhood at large are undergoing attempted gentrification. The Neighborhood Transformation Initiative garnered funding to demolish abandoned and decrepit buildings, replacing them with newer tract homes. She just brings up facts that happens in the city and the causes of things.
This website shows a map that is pointing put where crimes are being committed the most common place that people talk about. the city itself has so much going on that the.Dating back to Jan. 1, 2006. Each incident is tagged to a location in the city, making it possible to map assaults across the years, or vehicle thefts near your home address within the last 30 days. this can help in so many ways with knowing how to date the history of of philadelphia.
http://www.phila.gov/townwatch/Pages/default.aspx a group named town watch is looking over philly so far they are trying to make the city safe for all but hey aren’t sure how can they bring the people togeather. they take groups of people to walk around philly. the way the site works is that you can make a request to do a meeting fot it. people. they post documents on what happening once a week so they like a city wide meeting with everyone. they are also connected to something called philly 311 that is like a watc station tha looks over philly for case that inloves the neighborhood.
according to this arcitle by liz spikol she consiceders West Mt. Airy to be the most darruougs think in philly., according to the what Technically Philly’s Juliana Reyes calls the Inquirer’s “beautiful” crime app. “In the last 30 days, West Mt. Airy has been the most peaceful neighborhood in the city. That is to say, its violent crime rate clocks in at zero, she goes deep into the history for crimes happening all around town.
Recipe and Analysis
Chicken cut nice and clean. (make sure its washed really well)
About 1/2 cup buttermilk
2 cups of flour
As my mom says a pinch of salt
and 1/2 cup of s vegetable oil
about a sprinkle ground black pepper.
Make sure it WASHED really well before doing anything.
Cut it the breast pieces what ever way you want it to be.
After putting all the Ingredients in put the flour last.( doesn't matter what order you do it as long as the flour is last)
Not theirs many ways you can cook the chicken.
You can Bake the fried chicken or you can deep fri it.
My mom normally fri it first.
You get a pot or something that can pour oil into.
Heat the oil up for about 350 degrees F.
Let each piece sit in the frier for about 10 min then you flip it over.
Well this isn't really all that much of a family recipe its more of a dish that my family really loves to cook.My mom and her mom taught her how she makes her chicken and her mom just pasted it down to my mom.For the most part this MEAL is health because Red meat is naturally nutrient-rich which means it provides a substantial amount of certain vitamins and minerals. Meat also contains water, helping it to remain lower in calories compared with other foods. The following table shows which meats are a recognised source of vitamins and miners to help the body grow more muscle.
Chicken has bee around for a while now so it came form all over the world. But during the native american times they use to hunt for foods. but when people from all over the world came around the native americans they picked up different t ways to cook the meat. For example where a lot of south america is they cook chicken using basic ingredients
Well looking on back on this unit leared that most of the food thta we eat now that we know isnt healthy for us. But for some reason we still are being fede that type of stuff.Not only does it hurt our body but our goverment still sells us this type of food. thats what i think is the main problem with kids in todays world. places like McDonald's sell food under a really low price and they know teens love things like fast food that cheep and anyone could get. But in my case my eyes are open now. i want to change my diet and start eating more right. so that when i get older my body isnt that messed by the time i really old. I can look back on my life and think about things that could have been really bad for me because of the leason I know so much more. Eating right sets good examples for everyone.I could start to work out more and watch what i eat. And get things like furit.
Working with my group wasn't as hard as i thought it would be. Everyone pretty much did the part that each of us agreed on what needed to be done. My part was maily trying to do the website and getting the images to work. it loads up at time from time by then it doesn't. After working on some parts of the website next was fixing the edits that had to be made on the google doc like our purpose of our campaign and why it was import an for everyone to get healthcare. The only hard part about finding information on it was finding jobs that didn't offer health care.Most websites tried not to bring up the topic saying other benefits that can give you worked here.The last thing i can that i offered to my group was helping phoenix place the ar codes all over our school to get people to come to our website.The whole point of putting the codes over was not only for our website, it was also like a little test that we did on people to see what gets their attention. Thats we desired that a video is the best to get people to looks at our website.. I even made a little jingle that i try to get stuck in people head when they watch the video. But just not our school but as i was walking i placed a few ar codes and our webiste link around my neighborhood.Over all i think me and my group did a pretty good job in doing this project. My only problem with our video is if our editing skills where better we could have made it more funny with sounds affect and other stuff.
“Hahaha look a bol he a whole joke”
He talkn like he some time of professional person cuz ”.
“ Yo Zakee do you hear bol isn’t he a joke?
“Ehh sure whatever” I said walking away.
Trying to walk away from the huge crowed I didn’t realize that this many people had come to make fun of this 1 kid. But I guess I couldn’t blame them. Everything he said he said was formal and well spoken like he was some rich kid who was too good to speak like we did. I guess you could say that him speaking like that just mad kids angry because he was way out of their language. People tend to get angry because people talks differently, they break off onto their on way of talk and to fixed how they see society. Often times they despise each other saying the way they talk is right and completely ignore that their will always be more then one way to talk to a person.
I didn’t really care how he talked as long as he didn’t start anything with me. In class he sat alone not one person even said anything to him. Until the teacher called on him to answer a question. At first he didn’t say a word. I assume he didn’t know that answer but he answered it right. Not only did he get the right answer but he corrected they way she talked. All the kids snapped and stared yelling at him and started saying stuff like nigga this and nigga that and a lot more. Even after that he told her the right way to use it.
That night when I walked home it made me think about how I say stuff. I use so much slang I don’t know how I never noticed it. It just became my language. It annoyed me knowing I talked like this and I wanted to change it. Finding help was going to be the hard part. just about everyone I knew used slang just as much as I did. I would have asked my mom for some advice but she works so much that I don’t see her. The only person I could have think of was the smart-ass guy who schooled a teacher. My phone rang and it was my friend ask me for home work. Within those few second I replied with so much slang that when I look at what I wrote I didn’t have even 1 word spelled right. I needed help quick. I didn’t want to become some street bum who didn’t have a job because of the way I speak and spell.
I tried going to the new kid but he just ignored me.
”Hello can you help my cuzz?
He said nothing but kept eating.
“Well if ya didn’t wanna talk den that’s all ya have to say.”
He replied with “well if your English wasn’t so terrible I could have heard you.”
Piss off asshole,” I said walking away mad.
At this point I didn’t even care about would happen. If I talk like dis all mah life oh well.the way I speak may sound wrong, but am kinda happy so I can live with it. The Phone rings and it my friends calling me about a party down the block from him and asked if I wanted to come at first I was going to say nah but then I changed my mind and said sure. Party time came and I was ready. I headed out the door and before I knew it I was there. People talked everywhere so loud I couldn’t think to myself. Look for my friend but the crowd was to much. I hear people yelling and screaming, I had to get away.
“yo zakee over here
“Dude their you are wtf with all dez people?”
“ Most is my family I didn’t know they was going to come”
“Theirs this chick I want you to meet.
He walks me over to meet her “yo this they dude been talking bout”
At first sight she looked ghetto. Her first few words were ghetto, every time she talked she ended every thing with n”s like talkn, sleepn chilln its was her accent with the words that drove me mad. But then again I talk the same way. Does this mean I”m ghetto? Mostly likely but at least I was trying to change that. A lot of other people I know just don’t care. I go home my mom says,
“how was the party?”
“ehh it was ok”
days past is and I don’t Care about anything, language what ever. Going back to my old English ways of sayn yo bol, ayoo,. Few years past and we moved to another place just out side of Philly. It was near the suburban area. Mostly whites not rally black. Before I even knew it I heard these two whites guys talking. While they were talking I noticed they didn’t use any slang at all. Pure English. It made me think. Where you grow up is how you learn they way you speaking. Basically if people live where people say Potahto potato there going to say it like that because they were raised in that area. Knowing this made it easier to grow out of this habbit but what if this habbit was my own insecure about how I speak. James Baldwin said “if black English isn’t a language, then tell me what is?” I think then what it means is what is language other then understanding each other. That’s what I always seen language as for that one purpose. It can stand for different things like power, and love ect, but with out communication would kill it whole purpose of the word. That’s why when people talk slang as long as they can understand each other then in my book that’s language. So I shouldn’t change the way I speak but learn multiply was to speak withoutchanging the true way I speak.
after all of this im able to say that my speaking skills is now on a better level then It was on before. Saying all of this you could say that languges is comucataing with each other to a under standing of who is saying what and then reacting to it using your own style of lanuge.
Yo get up time for school” aww shit its 7:30 already? Yea its Wednesday and it’s the my least favorite class Spanish and oh boy how I hate Spanish. I tell my mom that I will not be going today but of course my mom said I think you will. Jumping out of bed brushing my teeth and getting dress and doing that other carp. Garbing my lunch to rush out the door before am late again my mom tells me that its cool out and I need a jacket and she can’t afford to get sick and other bull crap that I zone out to hear. “ You hear me” yea I said every word. I walking out the door and my bus am right on time pull out my transpass ready to get on. Doors up I look to my left and not a goddamn seat in sight. I walk to the back of the bus where I could squeeze my self in and stand. When we got to the next station this one fine look-in chick got on the bus just about the whole but was stunned. You could hear this boy in the back say “Danmmmmm I hit. Now is not the one to go crazy in public over a girl but she was pretty hot. So hot that I missed my stop and hade to walk down to school. Looking at the clock its 8:10 I am late. I run up to the third floor and tip toe in the door. My so call friends David yells “ Shawn why you late? Like the ass he is I hade no choice but to come in. the first thing Mr. Green ask me is “Shawn why are you late to my class?” I had to think in my head for a sec tell him I got off the wrong stop daydreaming bout a girl or lie and say woke up late. Yea is going to go with woke up late. Late you say?? This is this been happen a lot for the past few days are you sure your not trying to get on time? . Yea is sure. I sit down and take my seat. Think at least I did my homework. Pull it out my book bag. He goes around checking the homework until he get to me now normally he doesn't look like he even check it but for some reason as soon as it gets to me he reads it like it some mid term paper. Shawn Mr. Green says “You have a few answers wrong you need to re do this Ill give you some credit for doing it. All that was running threw my mind is this guy hates me. Time is going by and the class is so coming to an end and only on thing is on my mind run and get out as quick as possible. Class was dismissal and he say and “Shawn” right as I darted to the door we need to talk. The class leaves and he explains to me that I don’t respect him as a teacher. He talks on and on but I don’t care he hates me and I hate him so in the end I don’t really care. On my way to lunch the counselor sit next to my while I eat my lunch. Trying to ignore her to and finish my sandwich she says” Shawn I hear you’re not doing so well in Spanish and if you need any help am here for you. I just wanted to talk about some thing about your teacher Mr. green. Did you know back then Mr. green was a really bad student at Spanish. I stop eating for a moment and try to process what just happen, him bad at Spanish? yea right. Its true she said it turns out he was bad I guess him and I aren’t son different but I still hate him. But the last thing she said really got me it turns out that he didn’t like his Spanish teacher. She walks away I just want to make sure you knew. A couple of my friends show up yo” Shawn you want skips school? Nah I just remembered I forgot something in Spanish you guys go with out me
I remember the days when I was like 4 years old running around jumping all over the place with not at a care in the world. That is until I got older and I noticed things starting to change, going to this weird place my mom called school’ go on a yellow bus with people I hade never seen in my life. Life before I started pre k was fun back then.
I got into that place and there was this lady that the other kids called teacher. Me not knowing anything I would just copy everything the other kids did just to fit in.
I noticed that kids were in different classes but not just in one big room. After that I went to a place where they had lots of tables for the kids to sit and eat. I was unsure where to sit their was some many kids. I just decided to sit at the table with the least people. I noticed that the things I like most kids though was baby stuff. I remember that one time when I was in class I said that Elmo was my favorite TV show. The whole class started to laugh at me. I did not know until I noticed that they weren’t laughing with me but at me. I ran home crying, wondering why. My older bro "said if ya wanted people to respect you got to know what’s cool and what’s not.” I took his advice and it turns out he was right. You can't be yourself sometimes it depends on who you are.
But After going up grade-by-grade I stared to understand things a lot better. I thought we went to school because kids annoy their parents to much The things the teacher was teaching us were to help us in the real world.
Going to SLA - after leaving middle school I decide go to SLA why because I read most of the things posted on the website and snag my attention. I would have to say SLA was different then other schools. The reason I think this is because in SLA I feel like I can just be me and that just that. But their are still people who act but in only a little amount of people who do that. The way the school is setup is that as long as you show that you are trying you pass with b-c ok. At first I did not understand things that worked around the school like how printers are all around the school, that was the first time I ever had to do something. It was kind of nervous when the printed didn’t work I was too scared to ask so I just walked away. Moddle is another example of how things change for me when I stared to go to sla. I never ever hand to turn work on a website. It was the hardest thing I had ever done.
Sometimes it would stop working in the middle of work. Then I say to my teacher it didn’t work all she would say is do it on word next time. Other then that SLA is the best ive been in so far and I look forward to the next years with my friends,
Introduction: we did Journal Prompts all year about different
Topics here are the four I picked.
What is a “hero”? How would you define it?

Reflection on Winter Break
Winter break was ok it was not the best. I wish I could have done more I played games all day long. It was boring playing by my 3self. But my mom made an awesome dinner.
What makes someone an adult?
Or me its when you gained enough experience of how the world works. When you become a responsible, mature, open minded and considerate human being. It has little to do with age. In fact, the whole age debate is based on our assumption when an individual will generally become an adult. This numerical figure differs in cultures around the world. But you can't put an age on it.
How important is it to fit in?
Well fitting in for me is nothing I don’t care if people like the way I act or not am going to just was I. but I can’t say the same for other to them is important. They want all people

Introduction: Now this is the Macbeth creative one of my favorite because I used comic life to make it and its was fun. In the comic its all about the same events in the book Macbeth but I used video game characters to act it out. It my short version of Macbeth.
Introduction: this is my macbeth character analysis and all this how I talk about how Macbeth started off being a good guy then turning into a bad guy. Also I had to use quotes in the book to show it.
Zakee Jones Macbeth
Theses: Macbeth start off being a noble warrior to a blood lust killer who will do anything to say in power.
1 in Line 1 Act 1.7
Macbeth was like hero to his people and got promoted. But his wife thought he should get more
So Macbeth is talking to himself in his soliloquy he is alone in a room conversing about if he
kill Duncan. He think over and over to him arguing in his head and with this thoughts about
what would be good about killing Duncan and what will be the terrible if he did it. When
Macbeth says line 1 act 1.7 if were done “tis done, then ‘twere well it were done quickly
what he means is if I got to kill Duncan to become king I got to do it quick or people might
get suspicious of me. At this point Macbeth is going through a catcher evaluation change
and is now starting to have mix feeling. He thinking will kill Duncan to get more power then his proposition.
In Act 1.7,line 12 Macbeth is still in his soliloquy talking whets right
and whets wrong. Hess not really sure yet but whatever design he make is going to have an
effect on him, Macbeth say evenhanded justice commends th’ ingredient of our poisoned
chalice to our own lips. What this means is Macbeth is saying that even if I kill him and
become king the guilt in the end of it all will come back to him. Or he will kill and get caught
he might get killed himself and it will be for nothing.
Quote 3 in act 1.7 line 6 .so Macbeth is thinking im not going to kill Duncan because I have
everying I need a porosation, which means we will be making more money. But lady
Macbeth starts to get upset because if they become come king they will have even more
power. She start to question his man hood and Macbeth say I dare do all that amy become a
man who dare to more is none. And what this means is im all ready a man if any one goose
that far they are not a man
Quote 4 act 2.1 line 45 so in this seen Macbeth is ready you kill Duncan he is trying to get
his focus has handed made up his mined but suddenly he see a dagger in front of him. He
douse in know if he is going crazy or not but this what Macbeth say mine eyes are made
fools o’ the’ other senses or else worth all the sleep what douse this mean? Is his eyes
playing trick no the other senses I think I must rest.
Quote 5: act v.5 line 9 in this part Macbeth have just about killed everyone that became a
threat to his power. His entire servant is scared of him so he hears that the forest is coming
to his Castile and he is ready to fight. At the end he knows his power is coming to the end.
He says I have almost forgot the taste of fear. Which means I Alost forgot what fear feels
like. Will he do that much to stay in power?
Quote 6 act v.5 line 17
Macbeth so he gets new that his wife is dead they don’t say how but I guess that’s up to you.
So he says she should have died hereafter: there would have been a time for such a word. So
what he saying is he not pushing it a side but he cant let this news get him down his about to
go into war their would have been a better time to tell him this. He can’t let this be
conscience while he in war or it could mess up his focus.
Quote 7 In the end of act 3 scene 1, Macbeth is talk to his little people that kills people for Macbeth. Macbeth at this point is forcing the murderers to find and kill banquo a soon as possible before he gets in Macbeth way. According to act 3 scene 1 lines 140-143 Macbeth states “I’ll call upon you straight. Abide within. It is concluded. Banquo, thy soul’s flight, If it finds heaven, must find it out tonight” to the murderers. This quote means that Macbeth does not know if banquo will be going to heaven or not but he does not care he just wants Banquo dead. As you can see now Macbeth has hit his Blood thirsty mean killer part of him. Now all he want to do is kill and kill to do anything to keep the crown ad to keep his secret of the death of King Duncan.
Quote 8 Analyze Act 2 scenes 2, after the death of king Duncan Macbeth and lady Macbeth is talking to each other . Macbeth is saying that he will not sleep any more. the quote in act 2 scene 2 lines 40-43 “Sleep that knits up the revealed sleave of care, the death of each days life, sore labors bath, balm of hurt minds, great nature’s second course, chief nourishes is life’s feast”. This is a quote saying what he did when he was sleeping but from the context he will not sleep anymore and no more of this will ever happen. But Lady Macbeth is making him go to sleep. As you can see Macbeth is going a little big insane after killing King Duncan.
Quote 9 In Act 2 scene 2, lady Macbeth and Macbeth is still talking to each other after king Duncan’s death. Macbeth is saying that he will never sleep again and he had just got done killing Duncan. After seeing himself kill king Duncan he is feeling guilty and Lady Macbeth is forcing him to not.
Quote 10 In act 3 scene 1, Macbeth is getting better after the death of Macbeth but he has sent people out to kill Banqou know. Macbeth, lady Macbeth and the warriors will now meet to have diner with each other. Macbeth states in act 3 scene 1 lines 63-64 “Thence to be wrenched with an unlineal hand, No son of mine succeeding”. By this quote Macbeth means that Banquo will die and his son of his will be king. Macbeth is trying to keep the crown and is willing to kill any one that steps in front of his way. He does not care who it is because Macbeth will kill who ever it is. now Macbeth is showing his colors that he is becoming turning to be a blood thirsty killer.
Introduction: this is my Memoir vignette. so this was my q3 benchmark it was about my old days in school how I act and other stuff .it took my a long time to write but I got it done .I its two story in one
Chapter 1 first day
Tick tock tick tock (onomatopoeia). As I stared at the time I couldn’t take another minute of hearing this teacher talk even though I could not tell time. It was September 14, 2004, my first day of Fifth grade in Wilson Elementary School. Since we moved to this new school I didn’t know anyone. When I entered my first day of school all eyes were on me. They stared at me as if I was a wild animal going crazy (simile). “Class, this is Zakee,” she said. “He is new to this neighborhood, be sure to show him around” (dialogue). As the teacher pointed to my seat, I knew to sit next to the kid in the blue hoodie. I felt a strange but odd feeling that all eyes were on me. But I had dared not to look. It was that same feeling of the time when I was playing outside and noticed a shadow standing behind me. It had four legs and drool coming out of its mouth. It was a dog. Luckily Ms .Pam had him on a leash or he would have torn me to bits. I finally decided to look up, after all I couldn’t look down for the rest of the year. So I slowly looked up and saw these lustrous (vocabulary) brown eyes looking at me in the face. My lips were frozen. I was unable to talk.
“Hi”, she said with a bright energetic voice. “Hello?” she said as snapped me from my daze of confusion.
I replied with a low tone “hi”.
“What did you say?
Hi!” I said even louder.
Without realizing it everyone was looking at me. The teacher asked, “Zakee is there something wrong?”
“No” I said, sitting down. That same bright smile was still looking at me then.
“My name is Monica, it’s nice to meet you.”
“Class is over”, the teacher announced (dialogue).
I thought, what all ready? It was lunchtime, one of the best periods of the day. No thinking
about fractions or when did Americans get their independence from the British. None of that, just my turkey sandwich and me, a Hi-C drink and sweet and delicious Krumpets cake (Magic 3). As I was about to take a tremendous bite of my sandwich I was tapped on my shoulder.
“May I sit next to you?” It was Monica .
“Sure”, I said as I wondered of all people why me? Well at that point it didn’t matter she asked to sit next to me and that was that.
“What kind of lunch did you bring?”
“A turkey sandwich, a Hi-C juice and Krumpet. What about you?”
“A peanut butter and jelly sandwich with a bag of chips. It’s my favorite meal.”
After that we started eating in an awkward moment of silents more kids came to the table and began eating. They started talking about baseball cards and Pokémon cards. I wasn’t interested in their conversation. I was more of a gamer. I used to collect them, though, back in second grade. That is until I kept leaving them in my pocket and they kept getting washed. So that’s when my mom decided no more Pokémon cards for me.
The bell rung and it was time to move on to our last class of the day, Science. I was waiting for this moment for a while because Science was my favorite class and at my old school the teacher made it fun for us. As we walked in the class it seemed that the kids had a seating chart . So I walked up to the teacher and asked, “Where do I sit?” “Anywhere you want” he said with a sleazy voice. So I sat in the back of the room where I couldn’t have any problems with this dude. Judging by his voice this guy and me were not going to get along. For about 40 minutes of the class all this guy did was talk and talk and even more talking(repetition for effect). I whispered to the kid next to me, “What’s his name again?” “Mr. Green”, he replied. Finally, class was over. I packed all the books as fast as I could and darted for the door. I went to my locker, packed my books and went home (magic 3). The first thing my mom asked me was “How was school to day?” All I said was “It was a waste of time”( Dialogue).

Rushing in wet like a mop I got my late slip and headed for class .ernering my class my teachers say ahhh zakee your just in time for our pop quiz. Pop quiz .

Introduction: this is my compare and contras benchmark for my third quarter. This was about comparing big Dan from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? And the
Cyclops is from the book odyssey. All this is about is how both of them are alike.
Thesis: Even though Big Dan and Cyclops have some of the same characteristics, they are portrayed differently in the stories.
#1. Point of Comparison—Big Dan and Cyclops the same
Specific examples: Both have 1 eye
Both big and strong
#2. Point of Contrast—Big Dan and Cyclops different (tricking)
Specific examples: Big Dan tricking Everett and taking all his money
Cyclops he got tricked by Odysseus when he gave him wine that made him drunk then he fell asleep. Odysseus stabs him in they eye and blind him.
#3. Point of Contrast—Big Dan and Cyclops different (Big Dan is smarter than Cyclops)
Specific examples: Big Dan did not lose his eye, didn’t get tricked. Cyclops falls for Odysseus’ trick.
Big Dan was more prepared. He expected Everett to come. Cyclops didn’t know that Odysseus was going to come.
Conclusion: Restate your thesis. Your conclusion is that while both men have physical similarities, they are portrayed differently in how they handle situations. Big Dan seems to be smarter than the Cyclops because he is prepared for Everett and doesn’t fall for his tricks.
Sorry folks but this will but this will be the last one. There will be know more about the economy trying to take your money or anything else so enjoy this last one and I hope you’ll like it!
Today on the economy it seems that president Obama says that that the economy is going up. Now some of you might be thinking is the true here is what he says "in the fall of 2008, one of the last rallies of my presidential campaign was here in the Cleveland area. It was a hopeful time, just two days before the election. We knew that if we pulled it off, we'd have the chance to tackle some big and difficult challenges that had been facing this country for a long time. But then he also says We also hoped for a chance to get beyond some of the old political divides - between Democrats and Republicans, Red states and Blue states - that had prevented us from making progress. Because although we are proud to be Democrats, we are prouder to be Americans - and we believed that no single party has a monopoly on wisdom"
Now when I think about what he says I think maybe getting beyond some of the old political divides -between Democrats and Republicans, Red states and Blue states - that had prevented us from making progress could have helped our economy make some more progress. But if you think it only a though.
Well that’s all the info I have I hoped you enjoyed my blogs and information bye!
So far on my latest research on the economy there hasn’t be much change in it so far. But if there is I dough I would be realest to the public. But after surfing the Internet I found some thing interesting .it says that the world economy had a strong growth this year. They say GPD over the next two years should have a 4 percent increase also around 2012. Jan Hatzius, a German economist who is the US economist and is responsible for setting the firm's US economic and interest rate outlook. Although Minnesota’s unemployment rate is relatively low at 6.6 percent, businesses large and small are reluctant to hire and the depressed real estate market remains a drag on the economy.
Now thing start to heat up. Did you know our economy is in big trouble and millions of American families are hurting .Now I know some of you know that but Job loss and unemployment is at an all-time high? This is not good at all. We to fix this like now. Sorry folks until next time.

Their are still things I don’t know like why is it so messed now and who is to blame? There are things people post on the Internet like government dose this with our money and that but I can’t tell if it’s real or not. Its just 1 big rumor going around.
So far in my research about this topic I have l learned is the economy of the United States is the world's largest national economy. The U.S. economy also maintains a very high level of output per capita. In 2009, it was estimated to have a per capita of $46,381, the 6th highest in the world. The U.S is the largest trading nation in the world. Its three largest trading partners as of 2010 are Canada, China and Mexico. That’s all I know the basic of what they do.
I still need to find the basic of what they do but I know I wont have ahorzation to all people manage to slip some info out but I will do more work on my research .
I am choosing the type issue because I think I should know what my money is begging invested into but not only all people should know. Also to better my self in the world to not make the same mistake some American did with our economy.
