Fractured Poetry BkB

 

 

Sentence- I’ve been in a air cadet program for about 4 years. 

Phrases- I wanna be a pilot someday when I grow up.

3 favorite words- Happy, life, and pilot.

Reflection:

I choose this sentences because when my first time going to cadets i thought to myself that “i’m not gonna stay here for that long”, but when i decided to stay there longer and make new friends, join a club, participate in aviation courses and joining summer courses for a month. The more  i stayed there the more i’m gonna be interested in going to be a pilot.

I don’t know if this will make a powerful poetry or prose, I think I’m just telling a story about my cadet career and how it feels to fly a plan.

I hope this exercise will be making my writing a little bit better and making sure all my spelling, grammar  and other things are all correct.

Poem:

Experiencing about my cadet career and stayed there for as long as I can remember until those days are over, my first expression about cadets was “how am I gonna survive standing for about an hour, stand straight, look straight at the front and don’t move until someone said a command”, and i’m gonna tell you I fainted in the first day of my cadets and I cant believe

 

Electric House Project

For our science 9 final project, we were asked to build a electric house with cardboard, wires, and switches to make sure they activate. I was surprised that all our circuit works.

  1. You have three lights bulbs. All have the same intensity when lit. Explain how you can prove to a classmate that they are connected in series by unscrewing one light bulb. Support your answer. 

When you unscrew the lightbulbs or turn them off, the electrons have no home to go to and no circuit to complete therefore letting the electrons fall off and have to go back not lighting the rest of the lightbulbs and pushing the electrons through the full circuit.

2. You have three light bulbs. All have the same intensity when lit. Explain how you can prove to a classmate that they are connected in parallel by unscrewing one light bulb.

When the lightbulbs being in parallel, it means multiple other lightbulbs are still available to complete the circuit, and thus allowing them finish the loop by going through the other bulbs which are attached.

3.You have three light bulbs. Two are connected in parallel. This parallel combination is connected in series with the third light bulb. Describe the relative intensity of each bulb. Support your answer.

When there were 3 light bulbs connected in series, the power of each one will become equally as strong, why because there is one battery available for every light bulb. Therefore, they held no different intensity between each bulb.

4.In question number three, describe the relative intensities of the two remaining lit bulbs if one of the bulbs in parallel was unscrewed. Support your answer.

If one bulb was unscrewed both would still receive the equal charge as the battery is available for every light bulb

 

Our “Stuff” and the Spheres Mind Map

 

Behavior/Item: Electric Guitar
Raw Materials Production/Manufacturing
 

–          Maple or mahogany, and fretboards are typically made from maple, rosewood, and, occasionally, ebony. High-end electric guitars sometimes have one-piece wooden bodies, but many guitars are made from several pieces of the same wood species glued together.

–          A nickel/steel alloy string has a slightly more subdued sound than a pure steel string, with steel typically being brighter. The two main types of electric guitar strings have windings made from nickel/steel alloy or pure stainless steel.

–          The usual guitar paints are lacquer paints (hard paints) made from polyester, polyurethane and nitrocellulose because these continue to cure over time, are durable and enhance the guitar’s sound. Nitrocellulose paint is known as a lacquer, and it is a hard paint that has long been used on musical instruments.

 

–             Wood is selected, inspected, and processed to be made into bodies, necks and fingerboards. Sometimes it must be cured first in a conventional or vacuum kiln to maximize its stability. Curing can take as long as a week, and it relieves stress and wetness. The wood that will be made into a body is loaded onto a scissors lift and transferred to a conveyor where it is planed on both sides. It then moves down to the cut-off saw worker, who cuts the wood to size. From there, the wood is sent to a machine called a KOMO, a computer-controlled router that drills weight relief holes to make the wood lighter. The machine also cuts a channel in the wood where wire will eventually be placed.

–           The wood then goes back into the rough mill, where it will have a maple top and mahogany back glued on in a glue mill under 900 lb (408 kg) of pressure. It is then placed on a glue wheel to dry for four hours. Up to this point, the wood is a square block. When dry, it is ready to be shaped. It is sent back to the KOMO, which is programmed to cut the periphery into the desired shape. The KOMO also routs the back electronic pockets.

–          The body then goes to the body line for its final shaping. First, a worker sands the body by hand with sandpaper, then it undergoes a process called “rabbeting.” Rabbeting involves first making a machine cut that will accommodate the binding that the body needs. The worker maneuvers the body while the machine makes the cut. The body then moves down the line to the binding station. The worker takes the binding material, drenches it in glue by pulling it through a glue box, then wraps it around the rabbet cut made in the body. The worker then ties the body completely with rope to hold the glued binding material in place. Then the body is hung overnight to dry.

Transportation Sale/Consumption/Use
 

–          A guitar in a case will run you somewhere between $100 to $150 to ship. Yes, it will cost that much. A guitar shipped in a gig bag will be around $75 to $90. Obviously, this varies dependent on how far it must ship.

–          If you’re flying a commuter plane, your guitar is most likely going in the hold (unless you can talk the attendants into letting you take up the whole coat closet); but if it’s a bigger plane, there’s a chance you can take it on as a carry-on item. They must fit their carry-on items around your guitar.

 

 

–          The power consumption is always much higher than the power output. In this case the output power is 85 watts RMS and the power consumption are 260 watts.

–          An electric guitar is a guitar that uses one or more pickups to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals.

–          Typical costs: A basic electric guitar with amplifier and cord starts around $200-$400 for a beginner’s outfit; a better-quality kit can run $500-$2,000, and high-end electric guitars are $2,000-$5,000 or more for the instrument alone

Connections Between Effects

e.g. if your behaviour is “paper use” and you identified deforestation as an effect on the biosphere, you could also connect deforestation to soil erosion in the lithosphere

 

–          Consumption and the cost how much electricity you use. Electric guitar uses 260 watts per hour and that energy cost 246.74 per year.

 

Solutions

How can you reduce the negative effects of your chosen behaviour?

Small scale solutions (personal):

–          I would rather use acoustic guitar since they don’t use electricity

–          Maybe make your own guitar by using cardboard boxes and rubber bands. That way you don’t use trees/wood and all kinds of raw material.

 

 

 

Large scale solutions (policy/government/law):

Biotechnology and Ethics

  • Our dilemma was is it ethical deliberately evolve the human species?No one can predict the future but one thing is certain; the sun and the Earth will not last forever. In order for the human race to survive the end of our planet, we will need to leave Earth and travel to another world.
  • Our question was
  • 1. are we currently able to accurately change the human genome?
  • 2. Is it safe to manipulate DNA?
  • 3. Are there any side effects to changing the human body on a genetic level

My group was pretty good at communicating by doing this projects, although there are some issues in my group having problems understanding and focusing on our work. But the most important thing is we did great making this project and I really enjoyed learning about biotechnology.

Scientific Wonder Project.

How will robotics affect the life of teenagers in the future.
-It is meaningful to me because, we might get even more lazier and the machines can control you.
-This should be meaningful to others because it is important that we leave our devices for a moment and start socializing with people and not talking in social media.
Will jobs not be a thing for humans: Published by: Laura Cox, Date published: May, 16, 2017

  • We live in amazing times. Driverless cars, drones delivering packages and chatbots taking our fast food orders. In fact, this entire “thing” of robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) is now being called the next industrial revolution. And it does not come without a lot of fear about a large workforce losing its jobs and means of making a living.

10 Jobs where Robots Really are Replacing Humans

When robotics take all the work, what’ll will be left for us?: Author by:  Marcus Wohlsen, Date published: August, 8, 2014

  • Humans will continue to be useful workers, the argument goes, because of things like empathy, creativity, judgment, and critical thinking. Consider the all-too-common experience of calling customer service reps whose employers force them to follow a script—a kind of pseudo-automation. When made to follow a decision tree the way a computer would, all four of those qualities are sucked out of the interaction—no opportunity to exercise creativity, empathy, judgment, or critical thinking—and the service provided tends to stink.
  • https://www.wired.com/2014/08/when-robots-take-all-the-work-whatll-be-left-for-us-to-do/Advantage and disadvantage of using of robots in life: Author by: Heba Sofar, published:  April, 2, 2019
  • Most of robots are automatic so, they can move without any human interference, They can entertain us and they can help us in certain tasks, You can send them to dangerous environment such as the deep sea or the war-zones. The robots can be programmed to reach the Earth’s nadir, They can be used to dig for the fuels, They can be used for mining purposes, They can be harnessed for exploring the depths of oceans, They can be used to overcome the limitations that humans have. https://www.online-sciences.com/robotics/advantages-and-disadvantages-of-using-robots-in-our-life/

This information will help me answer my big question because it said that many jobs will take over by machines but humans can be still be useful workers the argument goes, because of things like empathy, creativity, judgment, and critical thinking. Robots can perform task that humans cannot, for example. Entering dangerous environments. 

 

Digital footprint

1. How might your digital footprint affect your future opportunities ? give at least two examples
– It could affect you because anything you post or send will be saved forever even if you think you delete it, it never goes away.
for example when your friend ask you a picture that is inappropriate, it will never go away and it will there forever.

2. Described at least three strategies that you can use to keep your digital footprint appropriate and safe.
– you have to think before sharing other stuff and think about the post you shared to other people, you also need to be smart about social media and use good passwords.

3. what information did you learn that you would pass on to other students? How would you go about telling them?
– I learned that when you send a inappropriate pictures to your friends it will never go away it will stay there forever, and you have to be smart about what are you gonna post.

Principle of Flight

1. How did the height you estimated your rocket would reach compare with the actual
estimated height?
– It didn’t go high I though will be.

2. What do you think might have caused any differences in the height you achieved?
– The rocket didn’t go as high I thought will be, it will be different when I make the payload smaller and put more tape so the egg is secured.

3. Did your rocket launch straight up? If not, why do you think it veered off course?
– It did go straight up but the payload is to big and it didn’t not secured the egg.

4. Do you think that this activity was more rewarding to do alone? Would you have preferred to do it in groups? Why or why not?
– I would prefer to do it with partner and it will be helpful to make more ideas with a partner, it will be less harder to do a rocket with partner rather than to do it alone.

5. Did you adjust your model rocket at all? How? Do you think this helped or hindered
your results?
– I need to adjust the payload and the top of the rocket.

6. How do you think the rocket would have behaved differently if it were launched in a
weightless atmosphere?
– its harder to launch from earth because the gravity of the earth its much stronger than gravity on the moon.

7. What safety measures do you think engineers consider when launching a real rocket? Consider the location of most launch sites as part of your answer.
– The engineers would go to a remote location and make sure spectators are so far away, that the smoke the rocket produces would not be able to reach the spectators. also, the launch pad would be heat resistant and the rocket would have to be designed well.

8. When engineers are designing a rocket which will carry people in addition to cargo, how
do you think the rocket will change in terms of structural design, functionality, and
features?
– It will be less drag because the weight of people.

9. Do you think rocket designs will change a great deal over the next ten years? How?
– yes because of spaceEX they will attempt to colonize mars and maybe other planents.

10. What tradeoffs do engineers have to make when considering the space/weight of fuel
vs. the weight of cargo?

Water bottle rockets

What have you learned about the history of rockets and space travel? Write a summary on the blog about something or someone you found interesting and tell why.
– I learned that back in the day they use rockets or engines, and I also learn that the soviet union launched the first satellite in 1957 and they also sent a first animal, a dog named Laika, into space. The US went on to land the first men on the Moon. Apollo 11 landed on the moon in July, 1969. Today the International Space Station (ISS) is flying overhead.

Now that you know about the basic parts of a rocket and what they do, write about each part and its importance in your own words. What will be different on your water rocket than on a “real” rocket and why?
-The nose cone is a protective cone-shaped case for the rocket. It is a important part of the rocket because it punches a hole through the atmosphere. The payload usually to carry something like animals, humans, scientific equipment, satellite and so much more. The prolusion chamber is like fuel tank but they use two tanks one for the fuel and one for the oxidizer, the oxidizer used for burning the fuel since there no oxygen in space. The fins is the most important part of the rocket, it is used for stabilized the rocket during flight and this cause aerodynamic and other forces, it is also adds drag so it will fly straight.

Write a little on the blog about how to find the Center of Pressure and the Center of Gravity on your rocket and why they are important.
-To find the center of pressure use a ruler pivot point, and try to balance the cut out profile of your rocket and make the point where it balanced. To find the center of gravity tie a piece of string around the body of your rocket and try to balance it, when you find the center of gravity mark the location of your string. The CG is the point where your rocket balances, the CP is the point against the which the wind appears to push. if the CG is in front of CP it will be stable, if the CP is in front of CG your rocket will go backwards.

Based on what you have learned about rocket design (nose cone & fins) describe what your rocket will look like and why you chose that design on the blog.
-it will look like there’s a two water bottles one will gonna be the inside the inside of the water bottle so its gonna be the nose cone and it will make drag [air friction] is the aerodynamic forces that opposes the rocket path through the air. The fins it will look like the last I made which is the paper rocket because it goes higher and stabilize the rocket better.
