as some of you may know I play hockey regularly and if any of you are playing hockey at the bantam level now, you would know that the playoffs are happening
me and my team have been working hard throughout the playoffs and have landed ourselves in first place of our tier
so this Sunday we will be playing in the banner game for the championship
if we win we will have our names on a banner at the arena
Here is another trick that I learned at the Hub
You take the numbers 1 to 17 and try to arrange them in an order so that if you add any two side by side numbers they will add up to a perfect square
Only one person in the class could figure it out and he`s the Math wizard of the class and only took him a few minutes but in a class of thirty on so people, one got it
So that kinda proves its fairly hard
Try it yourself and post your time in the comments
(for those of you who don`t know, a perfect square is the product of a number multiplied by itself)
Are we model NETizens
Who do you want to be online?
I want to be able to be myself. It’s hard with all the rules about not giving away personal information
What is a digital footprint and how can you control yours
A digital footprint is like a real footprint on the moon. It’s what you leave in your wake when you blog or post videos and it’s eternal. The elements will not ravage it as they would a real footprint and if you look hard enough you can see them forever
What recent embarrassing story of a celebrity has developed?
There is the story about Rob Ford doing cocaine while in office as mayor of Toronto. One picture of him which was found online has ruined him. He has been stripped of most of his power and the only reason he is still mayor is political stuff
What are some strategies that you use to stay safe online.
I avoid giving away personal information to even my most trusted friends. Who knows where it will end up
Which categories of people are more vulnerable online that others and why.
Young kids are very vulnerable because they don’t know the do’s and don’ts of the internet. They may accidentally give away personal information that could put themselves or others in danger.
Are offline and online risks any different and why
I think there isn’t a huge difference between them. We have “stranger danger” and things like that. we also have many other rules that are very similar to real life. Don`t share personal information, You wouldn`t just paint on the front of you house `your name here` lives here.
My class did this assignment today maybe you guys would like to take the test
My inquiry is I am going to build an automatic fish feeder for my schools fish.
Here is the design which I am using as a reference for my build. (DISCLAIMER. I don’t own this design. All credit for the design goes to the creator).
it is a very interesting build. if your going away for the weekend and you don’t want to bother your friends or hire someone to feed your fish. Just turn this thing on, set the timer and away you go. Nothing to worry about.
Also this week
I did my Ihub reads presentation this week. My book was Eragon by Christopher Poalini. If anyone reading this has read the book they know what I mean when I say its one of my favourite fantasy novels of all time.
Its an amazing book with a top notch plot and a cast of characters unrivalled in the books I have read. if you haven’t read this book and you like fantasy as much as I do. Drop everything and go get this book now. its very very good
lately I’ve been think of starting a YouTube channel
I’m thinking of doing some funny/review videos for no real particular reason other than maybe to have some fun with the games and maybe seeing how hard it is to get noticed on YouTube.
I have some concerns thought a few being that if I do get popular. People will expect one or two videos a week at the least and that leads me to one of my other concerns. Time is already a huge problem for me. I have to balance hockey, homework, and everyday life and if I was to start doing videos that may leave me with no free time at all. I heard from one of my favourite YouTubers recently that he hadn’t taken a vacation from his videos in over two years because of the deadlines and for a guy who has been to Florida 15 times in the last 14 years that’s pretty scary.
In conclusion I think I might start doing videos but in the first video and every so often in the description I’ll make a quick disclaimer saying that I do have a life and I might miss a few videos every once in a while because of it.
