This project which focused on diseases particularly Leprosy improved my understanding of how viral and bacterial diseases work as well as equipping myself with some vocabulary that is used when discussing such a topic such as incubation period and obligate intracellular. Researching the information on leprosy allowed me to grasp the concepts of how viral and bacterial diseases are transmitted, treated, and why symptoms occur. I was also able to pick up multiple new vocabulary words that have become useful in the rest of the course. Words such as obligate intracellular, gram positive, and bacillus have helped to improve my understanding during other lessons on monerans and viruses
Mightiest of Men
Mightiest of men
He deserved all as the unworthy councillor praised him
The land precluded from him through truce would profit under his directive
Mightiest of men
His dangerous display of dominance would crush the unlawful territory
While splitting the fragile web of peoples that combine to empower his empire
Mightiest of men
The loyalty of his army would drown in the needless tides of blood
His lands would start upon separate paths leading away from their point of meeting
Mightiest of men
His mighty shattered kingdom would be forgotten like a distasteful memory
The mightiest of men will topple with his title

Mightiest of Men by Jake Ryznar is an open narrative. It is an open poem because it does not follow a set structure or rhyme scheme and a narrative because it tells the story of the mightiest of men. In the narrative poem Mightiest of Men Jake Ryznar wields multiple literary devices. Metaphors and similes are used to help picture and find meaning behind the words. Alliteration is also implemented in the poem, “His dangerous display of dominance would crush the unlawful territory,” is one example from Mightiest of Men of this sound device. Symbolism is another important literary device used in the poem. Oxymoron is used at the start of the line, “His mighty shattered kingdom would be forgotten like a distasteful memory,” the tone device is used to portray part of the downfall of the mightiest of men caused by his temptation.
Jake Ryznar focuses on temptation and greed as a theme in the poem Mightiest of Men. The poem stresses how greed and temptation can lead to reckless decisions which tear down even the mightiest of men. The poem portrays that such a path can lead to a future far worse then what would be gained from giving in to your temptation and greed possibly ruining every aspect of your life. Jake Ryznar was influenced by MacBeth while writing Mightiest of Men. The same theme of greed and temptation can be seen in the character of MacBeth with his lust for power.

Ozymandias shows how arrogance and hubris can blind us from reality. Ozymandias is a poem in the form of a sonnet and was written by Percy Bysshe Shelley. The poem Ozymandias portrays the ruins of a statue surrounded by desert with an ironic hubristic caption on the pedestal. Ozymandias features multiple devices including metaphor, synecdoche, alliteration, and irony. Synecdoche is used with the line, “The hand that mocked them,…” because the hand refers to the entire sculptor in which the sentence means, the sculptor that mocked them. Irony plays a major role in the poem. Ozymandias is a shattered sculpture covered by sand; however, he is unable to see this and is blinded by his arrogance and therefore he calls himself king of kings which is ironic. The poem says, “My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair! Nothing beside remains.” The dramatic irony is that he calls himself big and powerful and yet he is now in ruins with nothing around except sand. The hubris theme is an important part of Ozymandias. Ozymandias boasts of his of his works and power but in his arrogance he is unable to realize that his power left him long ago. Ozymandias relates closely to Macbeth because they both have the important theme of hubris. MacBeth like Ozymandias believes that he is untouchable and all powerful yet they both fall from their overconfidence in which the difference is that Macbeth realizes his mistakes while Ozymandias still calls himself King of Kings while he is in ruins. Ozymandias reveals to us the ignorance and foolishness that accompanies hubris.
I felt happy once this project was completed because I had worked hard together with my partner to complete all the components with detail. I enjoyed using all the components we had used during the past unit in this project I felt proud that I had been able to remember and use these talents successfully in a paragraph. This project helped me show what I have learned so far in French 11.
The NHL San Jose Sharks team is my favourite sports team. I follow their progress relatively closely and was devastated when we lost to the St. Louis Blues last year. This year’s start was also disappointing and the loss of our mighty captain, Joe Pavelski, was a tragedy. Signing Eric Karlsson was another terrible decision from our general manager because he is greatly overrated, does not fit with the team and Brent Burns, and had a bad start to The Sharks last year. I was hoping that we would sign another goalie as well because our current goalie, Martin Jones, is good but inconsistently. One thing that has been a positive, however, was the signing of our old captain, who shouldn’t have been traded in the first place, Patrick Marleau. When I found this article on his 1500th game with The Sharks I was eager to here more. The author does a really great job presenting stats, videos, and photos while clearly portraying Marleau’s time on the Maple Leafs, why we got him back, and why we lost him in the first place. I also enjoy the use of quotes from old Maple Leaf teammates, old and new Shark teammates, and Marleau himself in order to understand how they feel about all of this. This article helps demonstrate how complicated moving from one place to another can be. It depicts the effect it has on you and the people around you and it represents the growth and experiences you gain.
