What I've done today

Today, I've red the book life of Pi. I didn't really find it that interesting at the start, but then I began to understand more, and then it automatically got better.

In our english class we got a new assignment. We have to read a book, and we can select between 7 books. Those 7 books are:
-Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, Ransom Riggs
-The book Thief, Markus Zusak
-Ender’s Game, Orson Scott
-Twice Toward Justice, Claudette Colvin
-The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
-Life of Pi, Yann Martel
-White Tiger, Aravind Adiga
So I chose Life of Pi, mostly because I know it's about an indian boy, and I'm indian so it will be fun. And the plot seems to be exciting.

WW2 comparison between USA and Norway

WW2 was clearly the most brutal war the world had ever seen. Millions of people died, millions of people were hurt. But in this blogpost I will focus on the comparison between Norway and USA. How many died in USA during the WW2? How many were hurt? How many died in Norway? How many were hurt?

I will start with USA. How many died and how many americans were hurt during the WW2? Most sources say that the American casualties were the following: 406,000 killed (including 6,000 merchant marine civilians;) 600,000 Wounded; 5,600 American civilians where killed in this war, mostly of them Merchant Marine Sailors that died in convoy wars, and ammo accidents. It is impossible to give true stats on this, because many soldiers were unaccounted for (too badly wounded and not even a dog tag could be retrieved) and, of course, there is no way one possibly could know how many innocent civilians were lost…

Then we'll move on to Norway.  11 500 lost their lives here, which is about 0.38 percent of the total population at that time.

The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree is a Christmas tree donated to the people of London by the city of Oslo each year since 1947. The tree is prominently displayed in Trafalgar Square during the Christmas season 12 days before Christmas. Why do the norwegians donate a tree? It is their way to say thanks.

So this was a little comparison between Norway and USA, and the tree.

11th hour

At school today we watched a documentary; 11th hour. The documentary was mainly about the global changes, and the problems we will face afterwards if we proceed as we do today. Every day we put a huge pressure on the earth, without knowing it. I will mainly talk about the global problems the documentary talked about.

The world is getting warmer and warmer. Many people don't think this is a big problem, but just get one thing clear; It is. Why? First of all the ice on arctic will melt, then the sea level will increase. When the sea level increases many countries will face floods and x-people will die and lose their home. The other Big problem is that the ecosystem may collapse, and then just a human brain can think what will happen next.

We build and destroy our own earth. We are geniuses, no doubt about that, but we are too selfish. Our (or many of us) biggest dream is to get rich and successful. But in this process we may be a part of destroying our own earth. For example oil companies, they often get greedy and provide too much oil... Which effect us, and our be-loving earth. Things like that build our earth economically but also destroy it.

The nature saves us for 36 trillion dollars! This was one fact that really got in to me. Most people doesn't appreciate the nature as we should do (I am one of those..). But after knowing this I will appreciate it much more! And I hope you also do.

Was it necessary to use so much money and time to save 3 whales? (Film topic, Big miracle)

Was it necassary? From my point of view, I think it wasn't necessary to use so much time and money to save 3 whales. When they again only saved 2, and the main character (the girl from Greenpeace) was only exaggerating. How much money could they use at other things? Like help people in other countries, or generally something better than try to save 3 whales...

The iniuts meant that the smartest thing was to kill the whales and eat them. That is simply the best idea in my eyes. That's the way of life, people day, animals die, the life goes on. We can't just use thousands of dollars at each animal, that is just to dumb...

But this was my meaning, and only my meaning, so I hope no one feels offended. :)

Informal: Grades in subjects - is it right?
Okay, I know that this is a topic that is much discussed. But this will only be my meaning. So don’t hate.
Is it fair for the people who do well at the other subjects?
No it’s not. A single subject have the power to destroy your education, is that fair? Hell no. German f. ex are my biggest enemy at school, I was dumb enough to choose the “easiest” language German. Easy? No way.
In the end
In the end I think we should have grades, but we should choose our own subjects, already in the junior high-school, for example: Why did I have art or German? I hate them both, and I sucked at both of them. And art was the reason why I didn’t qualify to my favourite school…

Formal: Grades in subjects – Is it right?
Many people get bad self-confidence if they get bad grades and someone also thinks it can be very unfair if their teacher don’t like them. In today’s school reports show that allot of pupils are unsatisfied by the way the grades are set. Many of them also think that they should choose their own subjects.
Is it fair for the people who do well at the other subjects?
Many pupils do well at school and get good results in subjects like English, Norwegian, mathematics, science etc. But some pupils are bad in subjects like physical education. That it’s too unfair for the pupils who do well at school, but aren’t very god in for example football or other sports.
