Valentines day through the eyes of a guy and a girl Final

I chose this assiment because I thought I wrote it really well. I chose it because it was one of my better Writting  assiments that I wrote and I got a good grade on it as well.

Valentine's Day Through The Eyes of a Girl and Guy

Valentine's Day is a day in Febuary where you should be spending time with your significant other because it is considered a romantic day. What would be the the ideal Valentine's Day through the eyes of a girl and guy?
I decided to interveiw my cousin Jairet Harrison and his girl freind Emily Gamache asking them both the same set of questions about this romantic day, so I can compare their answers. When I asked Jairet what he thought Valentine's Day was all about he said "It's about spending time with your girlfriend and showing them how much you love them". Then I asked Emily what she  thought it was about and she said "I think it's about taking time out of your busy schedule to spend time with your boyfriend". Jairet and Emily both think that Valentine's Day is about spending time with someone you love. I also asked them what a would be a good gift to give someone special and jairet said "Usually I get a charm for her bracelet or a nice piece of jewelry and I always get a nice bouquet of flowers". I asked Emily the same question and she said "I would get him a card and something sentimental and personal or make him something".
When I intervewed male and female they both thought that it was a romantic day to spend time with someone you care about. Most of the questions I asked them, they had similar answers except for the last question. The last question was, "Do you plan out what you want to do on Valentine's Day ahead of time?" Jairet said he does not plan ahead of time, he just goes with the flow. Emily said that she likes to plan the day ahead of time because it is easier to go through the day with ideas of what to do.
Valentine's Day is a romantic day for both males and females. It is a day were you show how much you care about someone. After interveiwing both male and female, the answers I got were different but both had the same idea of Valentine's Day being a romantic day.

2nd Editorial Final

I picked this writing assiment to be part of my final because I worked hard on it. I picked this one because I got a good grade on it and I though I wrote it really well and did a good Job on it.


                                                            RSU 5 Splitting Up

Reginal School Union 5 (RSU 5) has been an RSU for 5 years with Freeport, Pownal, Durham and now their has been talk about Freeport wanting to pull out of the RSU. An article from the Bangor daily news says: "The unrest stems from the June 11 referendum vote in which voters from Durham and Pownal outweighed Freeport’s support for a proposed $16.9 million renovation and expansion at Freeport High School". This is why Freeport wants out of the RSU becaue they did not get the new school that they wanted.
I think that the RSU 5 should stay together and not split apart. It should not split apart because Freeport is a small town and if they pulled out of the RSU then they would lose half of the students coming in as freshman every year. My opinion is that the RSU should stay together because as students who live in ether Freeport, Pownal, Durham, we come here for free and if Freeport pulls out parents in Pownal or Durham will have to pay for their kids to go to Freeport or were ever they chose to go.
I interviewed three students from Freeport high school, Morgan Karnes a sophomore said: "Personally, I feel like the RSU should stay together. As someone from Durham, I think freeport is a great place to be and go to school and I enjoy it. It would be a hassle for both Durham and Pownal students to pick up and find somewhere else to go to school". Other than school Regan Lynch and Isabel Peredy both freshman said that skill level in sports would go down because a lot of good athletes come from Durham and some from Pownal.
Oposing arguments are that Freeport wants to pull out of the RSU because it will get them a little extra money to build a new school. I have seen signs around Freeport that say it will give kids better learning enviorment's and it will make it a lot safer because with a new building comes better security and better ways to keep that bad guys out. To challange this I think we should just keep updating the building like they did to the main office door, you have to buzz in and the people in the main office unlock the door if the want you to come in.

To sum it all up I don't want to pull out of the RSU becaue what I think is that the people in south Freeport want to pull out if the RSU so then they can revote and get a new school and new athletic fields. I would rather stay in the RSU and keep things they way they are.

Vox Pop

This is an assiment we did for my journalism class. We had to think of a question and go around and record peoples answers. My question was Who is your role model? This was a really good qestion because I got a lot of good answers. https://docs.google.com/a/rsu5.org/file/d/0B-TocDn0ShjtVVhfeWlIQ1NKSVU/edit

Pixar Movie

After watching a clip of Partly Cloudy it seems like it would be a good movie to watch.  It is an animation that is about clouds make babies and the storks deliver them to their homes, but one cloud makes dangerous babies that hurt the stork. Eventually the stork turns on the dark cloud and goes to the good cloud and that makes the dark one sad and mad. But the stork comes back with protective gear on and the dark cloud is happy again.

 My opinion about this film would be it is a good one because the animation was good because the created of the characters must have put a lot of time in the characters to make them look good and make sense of what they were. and there were no real confusing parts in it and all the stuff made sense in the film for the most part. I could not really tell how the proformers did because there were no words, just animation.

Movie Review intro

If I was going to see a movie I probably wouldn't consult a movie review cause that is kinda boring to me and I just want to watch the movie.

Info that movie review can offer is what happens and were it takes place and the climax and who the main characters are and how it is set up.

I don't think young people consult movie reviews at all because they just want to watch the movie. Movie reviews don't realy mean much to young people.

Aspects that have a positive or a negative impact in a movie review is how many stars it has. Is it a five star fim, 4 star, thre star so on.

College Crossroads

1) What is your idea of what the perfect college for you might be? Why?

My idea of a perfect college is a college were I can go and learn about the trade I want to do with out taking any core classes in the the prosess because if I know how to do math and read and write then I think that I will make it just fine the rest of my life.

2) If you’re a student who is finished with the college process, what advice would you give high school juniors?

Advice that I would give high school juniors would be that to make sure you go to a college that you know is the right one for their level of learning because if you don't then college will be really hard for you.

3) In the end, how much do you think it matters where you go to college? Why?

I think it matters a lot were you go to college because what ever you want to do for a living that is something you need to think of when looking for a college.

Should businesses use SAT scores

1) Do you think SAT scores could be a good indicator of future career success? Why or why not?

No I don't think that SAT scores should an indicator for your carrer because the SAT does not question you on jobs and stuff, it is just a test to see what colleges you can get in to.

2) If you were on a hiring committee at a workplace, would you consider SAT scores as part of an applicant’s materials?

If I was to hire someone to work for me in the landscaping buissnes or construction business I would not ask for their SAT scores because the sat has nothing to do with work like that. If I was hiring someone to be a banker or something like that then probably I would ask for sat scores.

3) Should there be an expiration date on the scores’ being considered as part of a prospective employee’s application? If so, what should it be?

Yes their should be. Is should expire after 20 years because when your in your fourths you are not going to remmeber your sat scores and or were you could find your scores.
