Fusion Harmony

Do you like fusion style pasta? My favorite food is pasta, so my favourite restaurant isa pasta restaurant. It’s rans by Korean person who professional about pasta. These pasta are like fusion style pasta. That restaurant is called ‘Jimoco Pasta’. ‘Jimoco pasta’ has 2 franchise. One is in Lougheed, and the other one is in Port Coquitlam. Usually I eat carbonara spaghetti or pasta. However, there are many various type of pasta or risotto. I think Jimoco’s fusion style pasta or risotto makes restaurant’s food style unique. Also, when you get the foods, you can feel you can feel Italian origin. When I order seafoods pasta, the smell has a oceanic aroma. Moreover, the decoration is beautiful. White plate and pasta work in harmony. Also, the pot the pasta is put in, it is very artistic because the pots/plates are Korean style dishes. In my opinion, an Italian and Korean collaboration is perfect. The atmosphere is very smooth and romantic because there are lots of chandeliers. Also, the yellow light makes the food look better. Furthermore, you can listen to the background classical music, and gives an Italian vibe. Service is also perfect. During the order, employees are kind enough to explain and recommend each pasta. However, prices are little expensive, so it is burden to go often. I think fusion style foods are very expensive because it needs lots of time, knowledge, and experiences. I think this restaurant will fit a foreigner’s taste. You can enjoy spicy or plain pasta and risotto. Please go to there, and enjoy the special and unique pasta!!

3 Reasons Why I like Jack

1.He is a brave boy.

In the novel, he is the oldest boy on the island next to Ralph.  Everyone is afraid of the Beasties, even including Jack. However, he overcomes his fear and becomes the hunters’ leader, giving the boys some confidence that they can deal with the Beast. Also, as the most motivated hunter, he kills a pig himself. I often and provides food for others. I can sense that Jack feels for the littluns. He takes responsibility for getting better food and encourages them to hunt. I think he is a very brave and attentive boy.

In the novel, Jack leads the choir boys and littluns very well. He always find food for them and throws a big party when they finally kill a pig. I think that part is very important because I can see that he isn’t about only doing what he wants for himself, but has an eye for understanding what motivates the other boys.  Some boys like Piggy and Ralph don’t like his leadership style because he doesn’t follow their rules, but I think Jack inspires other boys because of his strong personality because he follows what others want of him. Perhaps in a confuse and fearful situation, the boys need a leader who can get them focused on something (hunting and satisfying the Beast).

3. He’s a realist who does what’s needed

I mentioned before, Jack does not come across as the nicest boy on the island, especially end of the novel. While this part give us lots of reason to dislike him, his actions decisive leader and hunter are what’s necessary in a dangerous survival situation. Ralph may be the ‘nicer’ boy but as he starts to lose his direction and confidence, not be able to get the boys organized to build the huts and keep the signal fire burning, it is Jack that steps up to do what is necessary in a bad situation. Jack was simply realistic than the others because he saw  that they needed meat and understood that the boys would much more enjoy tribal than democratic. Jack may not made the decisions, yet he made ones that made sense if they were never expecting to ever be rescued.

# Human Condition project

“In Solitude”

This song represents loneliness and solituhd, which are common emotions of the human condition. Through the whole song, singer is waiting in her chair and is filled with despair. She remembers about someone she is deeply in love with, but someone is gone. She feels sadness and gloom everywhere. Also she is staring outside and feels she could go mad with her despair.  She wants to get her love back. I think she could have divorced with her husband or broken up with her boyfriend, or her husband was dead. Many people can feel isolation or solitude in many different cases. In additional, people need other people’s love or attention, which can help them overcome their difficult emotions. Therfore, this song’s theme is how the feeling of solitude can lead people to very depressed feelings becauses we feel unconnected or distant from others. Whether situation is death or break up, many people feel the unhappines of solitude.

8.2 Solving Absolute Value Equation.

I learned about how to solving absolute value equations. There are 2 type of solving method.

1, Solving with Graphically for Linear and Quadratic.

2, Solving with Algebraically for Linear and Quadratic.

I want to explain more detail about #2 for Linear

Solving with Algebraically for Linear is following these steps

1.  Simplify the equation first.

2. Write two equations.

3. Make a two X’s values.

4. Check x’s values with X’s range.

1. No solution
2. one root
3. two root

5.3 Graphing Quadratic Inequalities in two variables.

Solve the inequality as though it were an equation.

The real solutions to the equation become boundary points for the solution to the inequality.

Make the boundary points solid circles if the original inequality includes equality; otherwise, make the boundary points open circles.

Select points from each of the regions created by the boundary points. Replace these “test points” in the original inequality.

If a test point satisfies the original inequality, then the region that contains that test point is part of the solution.

Represent the solution in graphic form and in solution set form.

5.1 solving quadratic inequalities in one variable.

This part solves the quadratic inequalities on number line. Also, we find x values and domain.

The real solutions to the equation become boundary points for the solution to the inequality.

Make the boundary points solid circles if the original inequality includes equality; otherwise, make the boundary points open circles.

Select points from each of the regions created by the boundary points. Replace these “test points” in the original inequality.

If a test point satisfies the original inequality, then the region that contains that test point is part of the solution.

5.5Solving Systems of Equations Algebraically

This section uses substitution.
Make both equations into “y =” format.
Set them equal to each other.
Simplify into “= 0” format (like a standard Quadratic Equation)
Use the linear equation to calculate matching “y” values, so we get (x,y) points as answers.

4.5 Equivalent forms of the equation of a quadratic function.

An equation of a quadratic function in standard, y=a(x-p)^2+q, can be expanded and written in general form, y=ax^2+bx+c. When the equation of a quadratic function is in general form, most characteristics of the graph cannot be identified. For the reason, it is useful to be able to convert from general form to standard form. This can be done by “completing the square”. This process involves including a perfect square in the equation of the quadratic function.

4.7 Modelling and solving problems with quadratic functions

This chapter is use of chapter 4.1~4.6 technology. Some problems can be solved by writing, then graphing a quadratic function.

Factoring
To factor a number means to break it up into numbers that can be multiplied together to get the original number.

In order to solve quadratic equations by factoring. We should set he equation to equal zero. Secondly, Factor the non-zero side. Thirdly, use the zero factor property to set each factor equal to zero. Fourthly, solve each factor. Fifthly, reject extraneous(undefined) roots. Lastly, check the solution in the orginal equation!!

Using square roots to solve quadratic equations

In order to solve a quadratic equation by completing the square(using roots). We should write the equation such that the variable terms are on the left side and the constant term is on the right side. Secondly, divide the coefficient of x by 2 and square it. Thirdly, add this square value to both left and right side f the equation. Fourthly, write the left side of the equation as a perfect square binomial. Lastly, use the square root property!!

1. Multiply the coefficients. The coefficients are the numbers outside of a radical. …
Multiply the numbers inside the radicals. After you’ve multiplied the coefficients, you can multiply the numbers inside the radicals. …
Simplify the product.

I learned multiplying Radical Expression in pre-cal11 class. When I see this part first, I thought it will make me die. However, Ms.Burton’s solve method made me different. I could feel solve these questions easily. So now, if test questions give me about multiplying radical questions,I can get a 100% score.
