Racism then vs now

Racism situation now has definitely improved from the past, but there are also more hidden issues. In the past, the racial segregation was largely promoted. For example, the ban of marriage between blacks and whites; there were separate washrooms, restaurants, and train cars. The discrimination was also direct. For example, the race has to be listed on ballots, and during the Great Depression, blacks were forced to give up their job for the whites. These direct segregation and discrimination laws were abolished, and people have realized it as an issue. But similar issues still exist. There are still segregation between races despite there are no segregating laws. For example, blacks and whites now days still largely concentrate in their own different communities. Many black communities (“Hoods”) have poverty, high crime rates, and high unemployment rates.

I figured out which equations to use based on my previous knowledge, worksheets, and exploring by trial and error. My challenges are I didn’t learn some of the equations in class, so I spent a lot of time doing trial and error. I had aha moments when I finally found the right equation and realized their shapes. I got some help from the internet researching about the shapes of different equations. This assignment helped me to better understand properties of equations and their shapes

prime love poem by Marcus and Ruomin

Prime love poem

97 was one of its kind, in its row, it was the only prime

One day he met 3 sitting at a tree

“Do you want a cup of tea?” cried 3

“Of course I do, what a pleasure of you”

“But why are you up here 97?”

“I’m the only prime in my row and I have nowhere to go”

“I am so small no one cares about me,” said 3

“Don’t be upset 3, we’ll make 100 if we’re together”

And they lived perfectly after

This affects us because we could never know who is behind those commenting accounts. We may think them as some political expert and be influenced to accept their views.

This affects us because we would focus on and worry about the fake posts and miss out the real family of the victims who need help. It could also attract unwanted attention for the person whose photo was “stolen.”


This affects us because many of us are confused with the basic facts and news. Some of us are tricked into believing lies. Thus, specific groups could make up news and manipulate public’s opinions for their own favor. Everyone should have the right to be informed about the truth.

The life of a cell


Also know as vitreous cells are cells part of the vitreous body which fills up of the space in human eyes between lens and retina.

The vitreous body is composed of mostly 98% water with few cells, and 90% are hyalocytes cells. The funtion of hayalocytes cells are producing hyaluronic acid and collagen. Hyaluronic acid is an important component for a smooth elastic tissue that covers cells as a lubricant and protective padding. Collagen is a very flexible and gives the vitreous body strutural support.

Sometimes we see clear string like things flowing in our vision, those are hyalocytes cells.


As you can see, I am the hyalocytes cell. I am in the vitreous body in your eyes. You probably have seen me in your vision as clear watery strands flowing around and didn’t pay much attention to me. I make rubber like materials to support and lubricate your eyes and cells within them.


What questions did you need to research in order to create your cell story?

I needed to research where are they found and their functions. Their information is very few online. I also wanted to know their structure and how they mutate, but I can’t find any information on that.

What new or familiar digital tools did you try to use as you worked through this project?

I used Google and also tried some Gale Engage Learning, but I can’t find any information on the Gale website.

What was the process you used to investigate the topic?

I first searched where they are found then what do they do.

How did you verify and cite the information you found?

I look at multiply cites to verify.

How did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better?

The process was not too smooth. Next time I should try researching on something with more information available.
