The meaning of the ode and lyric poem is about how a lot of slaves, and hardworking women have sacrificed a lot to make the inauguration great, picked the cotton and the lettuce, “built brick by brick the glittering edifices they would then keep clean and work inside of.” (Lines 28-29). The slaves and women have suffered and have struggled to find ways to accomplish the inauguration, but they never gave up, “all about us is noise. All about us is noise and bramble, thorn and din, eachone of our ancestors on our tongues.” (Lines 4-6).
Soccer impacts a lot of people’s lives in a lot of continents, three of those continents that are really into soccer are Central America, South America, and Europe. The strange thing is that the continents that are passionate about soccer actually call the sport “Football”. These countries love the Fifa World Cup, which is a tournament that is held once every four years in the summer. There are 32 soccer teams that represent each country. The tournament has intesing moments like great matches, some unfair play, dumb referees, awesome fans, yellow cards, red cards, big losses, great defeats, penalty drama, and new records for teams almost every tournament. When a soccer team wins the tournament, it impacts a lot of children’s live’s because they know that their country is good at soccer, and they beleive that their country can become champions in the next upcoming world cups. The children in each of these countries play a lot of soccer and some of them are called to the team, some of them win the World Cup which is like a dream come true to them and their country. Others don’t win the World Cup, but they get really far in the tournament.

Technology is affecting our lives around us because it has created a great impact on the human race and the future. Through technology we have developed a wide range of devices that affect the way we communicate and think. There are some disadvantages as well as some benefits.
Machines have replaced face to face interactions and they prevent people from talking to each other in a more meaningful way. The result is that there is less of an opportunity for human beings to connect on a deeper level. Also, since a person can google whatever information they need with the touch of a button, there is no need to really think it through. When students are given assignments, projects, and test preparation, they become isolated and have difficulty completing the work effectively. The student wastes time playing video games or chatting through social media with others.
Addiction to social media has become a serious problem in our society because people can’t tell the difference between reality and fantasy. Snapchat, instagram, and any other famous apps have cause teens to commit suicide because of nude posts and cyber bullying. The impact on digital footprints and the use of inappropriate social media are gaining attention in schools from kindergarten to grade 12. In addition, since the release of the first commercial video games in the 1970s, concerns have been raised about the level of violence contained in those games and how that violence may affect the real-life behaviour. With digital identity being so available, people have no privacy and hackers can easily invade their space and steal their possessions and identity from them.
While there are a few benefits in the use of technology such as global connections and increased efficiency in the workplace, it can ruin our world by the end of the 21st century. It is extremely possible that people will become completely addicted to and dependent on technology. Researchers have shown that nanotechnology can damage our brains and have a big impact on our mental and physical health.

The play or novel “Death of a Salesman” written by Arthur Miller is about a father named Willy married to his wife named Linda who has two sons. Their family’s sons are Happy and Biff. Biff is struggling to get a job or get employed in his life, and thinks that he will fail everything he has under pressure. Happy on the other hand of Biff, is successful and has everything he wanted, his own apartment with the Knick knacks and utilities to help him in his life, the only thing left he wants most in his apartment is women. The play leads to hard suffering in Willy’s mind because he is on low wages, and he is afraid that he will not be a successful salesman just like his father. The sons Biff and Happy are more concentrated on succeeding on their goals and not care about their father. Willy has been trying attempts to commit suicide, but his wife tries to stop him every time until he kills his elf at the very end. Willy did this because since he was on low wages, he sacrificed his money for his two sons (mostly Biff) so they can have a great successful future with their mother and maybe families.
The part of the play that fits on the blackout poem is when Willy is suffering and seeing screams of horror in his head, and wishes to end his misery. The are five symbols in the blackout poem. The X with a line on top symbol means the surviving symbols, and one of the people trying to survive in life is Willy. The horror symbol of the spooky face means the horror that Willy is going through his head. The mind/head symbol means what is happening in Willy’s head. The scream symbol means the screams that Willy is going through on his head. At last the misery symbol means what Willy is trying to end on what is happening inside his head.
