Olympics are almost here

Some of the worlds best players in sports such as Hockey, Bobsledding, and speed skating are going to compete in Vancouver in February. What I like mos about the winter Olympics is the anversary of the USA and USSR hockey game miracle. 4 to 3 USA againstthe best team in the world at the time.  Just think, a bunch of collage kids (USA) beating players that have been playing for about 15 years together (USSR).  Just think about how Herb Brooks, the USA hockey coach, felt when they beat the USSR and go on to win the gold metal.

One small step for man

July 20, 1969 man first step foot on the moon.  This was a great day for not only America, but all man kind.  As Kennedy said “We don’t do these things because they are easy. We do them because they are hard.  I may just be a kid, but I know a tone about the moon landing that day and I am going to tell you in as much detail as I can the way it happened with the info I know.

From the info I know, Neil and Buzz were beginning there desent down to the surface of the moon when a program alarm went off. The alarm was program alarm 1202. This alarm meant the computer had to many things to do and it was coming close to shutting down. Another alarm went off, 1201 which meant that the computer would almost completely shut down.  Back at mission control, everyone was trying to solve the problem. Gene Kranz, mission commander, figured out that the computer was doing so many things that it was dropping things. First crisis averted.

The second problem was the landing.  “The computer was heading us to foot ball sized craters.”  Neil Armstrong.  They used most of there fuel trying to find a landing site. They did find a site, but with only a little bit more than a minute left of fuel. They almost had to abort the mission. Before they landed on the moon Gene Kranz told that no one could leave or enter the control room till one of three things happened. We had eather landed, crashed, or aborted. They did it they landed with about 17 seconds till the abort.

So that is how I heard it, that is how from all my facts we landed on the moon.  This proved we can accomplish anything we set our minds to. It proved we can break free of our own planets gravity and travel to another planet. Our next challenge is heading towards Mars.

 I got this from the Discovery Channel show.  When We Left Earth.

My life in middle school

Well I am going to High school next year.  It feels like yesterday I just finished my 6th grade year in middle school.  I have many memories here, but the one that I won’t forget for a while is the memories with my friends.  At least 3 of my best friends are going to a different high school than I am.  Still I have a few other friends coming to the same school I am.   I think the best memory for me was when the 6 of us were at lunch playing with our gameboys and chatting.  One of the kids bragged about how he thinks he is the most popular kid in school, but we knew he wasn’t.  I will miss those days.  I hope I still see my friends from time to time.  I will miss middle school.

Democratic Question

Here is an interesting question for you.  Do you think the United States government should become more or less democratic?  In different categories I say more, but others less.  It should be more democratic in making laws, because we should have a say in what the laws should be.  What should be less democratic is the judicial branch because the government should be the ones to decide what will happen to the person being prosecuted or accused.

Electoral Collage Question

If the Electoral College was abolished, and people directly elected the President, what should the qualification be to vote in a Presidential Election?

The first thing is you should be 18 or older to vote. ( I WANT THAT LAW TO BE LOWERED TO AGE 13.)  The second thing is that you have to be an American Citizen to vote.


The bruins made it to the next playoff setion with a series lead of 4 and 0

The last game the bruins lost 3-0 against the Hurricanes.  Great check from Chara though.

Next game Wednsday at Carolina.
