Stance on Human Cloning

Human cloning… not such a good idea. I’m not completely saying no to it, but I do not feel the need for human cloning. The thought is fascinating and scientists can study cloning but to an extent. We have to consider those around us because society is not ready, not accepting human cloning. Shortly after “Dolly” a sheep that had […]

Human Cloning

Looking through the article, “How Human Cloning Will Work” by Kevin Bonsor & Cristen Conger provided the diagram above of what is needed to clone a human. First, a donor egg is needed, and nucleus removed in order to fuse it with the cells of the person being cloned. With electricity they fuse, implanting the embryo to the mother to give […]

My Media: Slavery Today

I painted this acknowledging the prisoners who work on those hard days doing harsh labor. The background yellows and oranges to show the heat, the fence from prison and chains to symbolize that its slavery. I wanted contrast from the bright back ground and went for black and grays to have different values. Print this page. Author Mireya

Genetic Engineering

Simply fascinating. Imagine having full control of the genes of your children, different species to limit or give them characteristics you desire. That is Genetic Engineering. “Genetically Engineering Almost Anything” written by Eleanor Nelsen and Tim De Chant opened my eyes to the world of geneticists. Think about it, Esvelt and Caplan are creating possibilities that could lead to genetically modify […]

Human Cloning

I’ve seen it on TV, but it’s all in the “future” and science fiction. Human cloning will be my focus. It intrigues me because I know it is being done to animals. I want to know more about it happening (if ever) to humans. Like if this were to happen, what will people’s opinions be about it. The thought itself is […]

No More Slavery

Under the 13th amendment is states: “Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.” A great success, to finally end slavery, but still face hardships. Former slaves were still treated horribly and the discrimination continued on […]

Slavery Still Exists

Does slavery still exists? Why? How is it still in society today? Where is it happening? And why isn’t anyone doing anything about it? Why aren’t people informed? Are people ignoring the matter..? Equality, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. These terms matter to me, but so does the US? Perhaps a perfect world is not possible yet we can try […]

Tone, Inflection, and Engagement

For my third post, I chose an excerpt from ‘Return of the Messiah’ by Huntfrog. It was a small short story and I wanted it to be scary or have a plot twist. It felt easy to convey that tone. I was actually really satisfied with the recording because it gave it the feel I wanted to come off.   […]

What an Oral Presentation is Like

Two videos that I watched were “TED’s secret to great public speaking” and “Good and Bad Examples of Presentation”. During Anderson’s video he expressed that you must connect to the audience, make them relate to your topic. Anderson says to “transfer into their brains” and this could be to implant the idea and make it grow for the view to make that connection. […]

Comic Strip Othello Act I

http://Pixton.com/ic:5n0etxkr The website would not let me download the comic strip. Creative questions I answered were that back ground and characters were difficult from a small variety so I had to pick from different eras and Desdemona was under the caption of party. The back ground was difficult in the sense that it had the same issue, like the Victorian […]

Reflection

Below this is the log of how I meditated when I was stressed after those situations happened. I do have to say that it helped me. I felt more at peace and less stress on myself it I let the meditation lead me back to rationality. And in reality I enjoyed it. Meditation was something I thought was lame, nothing […]

Meditation

Meditation is something I can stick to. Something I need in order for to calm myself. I think I will find it enjoyable because it is simple. I can have my own mantra (repeat a word many times), breath and take it all in. It will stop the cortisol that is constantly being produced in the brain (which can lead […]

Stress

What has stressed me out throughout this whole school year was trying to do everything at once, and constantly thinking of what I was going to do instead of doing it step by step. When I get too stressed out, I freak out. I only start stressing more, which only worsened the situation. I become lazy, so much thinking that I […]

Quote: “[Roderigo] Do not believe / That, from the sense of all civility, / I thus would play and trifle with your reverence. / Your daughter, if you have not given her leave, / […]

Through the Eyes of Others

Why study Shakespeare? It is not only the matter of entertainment, but other things provided in the book. In the YouTube video “Why Study Shakespeare Today” the woman states that what Shakespeare was writing was from experiences he had seen like traveling or diplomats visiting the queen. It is something she can talk to her students and also connect it […]

Othello’s Fight for Reason

Hello, I’m Mireya Amezcua. The lines I picked for Othello are Act V scene II lines 1-10.  I decided to pick Othello, because what is to come after this part is chaos. I also believe Othello is a strong character and this is his breaking point. I wanted something to foreshadow what is to come. When practicing, I did not have much […]
