Leading up to the presentation I had to make connections from our part(pg. 59-65) to the world around us. With some reasearch and help from my team, I was able to make connections with a journalist from America, Iron man, myself, and a YouTube video about the heroic journey.
(I couldn’t use the other core competencies page so I just added it here)
I liked this role a lot because I had to think in a different way then I normally do. I also liked this role because I could explore all the different ways I could make connections. Doing this role, I could come up with ideas for connections by just doing everything I normally do so it made it a lot easier. I could research with an idea in mind of what I am looking for because of the different connections I thought of.

I got interested in this article because of the stories we have been reading, and all about first world problems in them. Especially The Soft Rains caught my attention because it is about how we want our house to do everything for us, which is nice, but we can’t become lazy. For example, this product of a pump that squeezes out the peanut butter just so you don’t have to spread it yourself. I particularly liked the way that Rusty wrote this, it was humorous because he is obviously being over exaggerate because he is also being sarcastic and it is funny when those two combine. He really demonstrates how lazy some people are but yet, people still buy it so it is obviously working well.

I liked and disliked this article because I liked how they are dealing with the issue but there is no excuse to why they did that. It’s really cool to see how a lot of people are getting involved in getting the whales out of captivity and into a proper home; therefore, it shows how good some people are. I found this article interesting because wild animals, in my opinion, deserve the same rights as domestic animals because they also just want to live a happy life.
I thought that the writer did a very good job at telling the story in a quick yet informational manner; in addition, she really did her research about the dilemma by explaining about how celebrities are getting involved. When I saw the title of the article, all I could think about was Free Willy, the movie, because in both stories, whales are kept in captivity and need to be released.
