Rebirth is not far
In the past 3 weeks, we practice so many P.E. skills. Including cardio endurance、balance、reaction time、speed、agility、flexibility、muscular endurance、hand-grip、coordination.
In fact, I have done a similar training in basketball training, I like to play basketball, so I think this is very beneficial to me.
We conducted to the Harvard Step improve cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, 5 meters to Tingshi our speed, we stork exercise our balance, we also measured the grip strength. I think the most fun training the eye and hand coordination test, we will be a tennis ball thrown against the wall, and then use another hand to catch it, It's good for our coordination.
All of us tried our best to do the test.
This week, we also did yoga, although we did not very well, but we thought it's very interesting, and I think it can relieve my stress, relax me.
I hope I can be stronger this term.
This Friday, my friend and I went to Gateway Plaza and watched a movie called “Les Misérables”
I arrived at the cinema at 6:40. One of my friends really want to watch “Les Misérables”. So I accompanied with this friend. We brought the 7:10 tickets. We didn’t eat dinner so we hurried to KFC and brought some hamburgers.
At the beginning, Jean Valjean is pulling a boat from the sea and the slaves are all singing. I was shocked. It is grand. Later, The story is miserable. Jean was released on parole. The desire of freedom let him rived the parole. He became a mayor later. At that time, the society was unfair. Some people had no rights. Later the the french revolution begin, it was a battle on char. I think the story want us to know the world at that time. The world is a mess. The polarization of the rich and the poor was really big. Poor people can never turn their life over. And at that time, the Justice is unquestioning. The justice didn’t give people rights. Like the captain in the movie., he is not a bad guy but he misunderstand what is justice.
I recommend this movie to students, we can learn many things from this movie

“Elephant man” is a novel. (based on a true story)It is about a extreme ugly person. He got a very very rare skin disease.People laughed at him and make fum of him. But one day, a doctor found the elephant man and the doctor think he is really interesting. After the doctor did a report about the elephant man. He gave the elephant man help the elephant man a lot. Elephant became famous, he worked in the circus, but people in the circus treated him like a animal. They treat him inhumanly. They put on a poster in circus. On the poster, there is a man with an elephant head. This is shameless.
This world is merciless, people make fun of handicapped. That is shameless. Elephant became famous because of his born disabled. If you are born disabled and people make fun of you, what’s your feeling? I think elephant man is tough, he don;t care about how did people remark him. He said “ I am not an animal! I am a human being1I ...am...a man.”. People from different classes laughed at him. He still love his love when he was in this situation. People who laughed at him had sane appearances but in fact they had a deformity mind.
I found a very interesting song on the internet “Mike, Mike, where's your head? Even without it, you're not dead.”. I wondered who is this Mike in the song? So I type Mike on Bing. Surprisedly, Mike is not a person, it is a headless chicken. This headless chicken lived for 18 months.
In 1945, a farmer called Lloyd Olsen took a 5 years chicken from his wife. He wanted to make a feast for his mother. His mother love chicken’s head so he cut the chicken’s head. Magically, the chicken can walk after he cut his head! Lloyd didn’t kill the chicken, he saved the chicken’s life. Of course, Mike became famous. Local citizens thought this might be a hoax but University of Utah did a research and announce that this is not a hoax. Many people want to see Mike but Lloyd said people need to pay to see Mike. Lloyd earned 4,500 in four years.
Mike died in 1947. The Autopsy report said that Lloyd didn’t cut Mike’s vein. And some of the brainstem is still left in his body. The report also mentioned that Mike is a health Chicken.
It is a miracle for Mike to live, but I think sometimes human are very cruel. I don’t think Lloyd can earn money from Mike. Instead, I think Lloyd should end Mike’s painful life. Just Imagine, if you live without head, would you still be happy? You can’t see the beauty in this world. You can’t even talk to people. Life is meaningless. Like the “elephant-man”(a novel about a handicapped who worked as a clown), Mike’s life is very similar to elephant-man, Mike has been exhibit for 2 years. Mike just like a clown who amused people. In this merciless world. Nobody care about him. I think Mike is not a chicken, more like a item on display.
1. What are the conflicting rights and interests in this case?
The students wanted to publish two news: one is about teenage pregnancy and the other is about the divorce and negative remark about the father. But the principal removed these two stories. I think the conflicting rights in this case are freedom of expression/speech. The interests in this case are personal and inappropriate for the school’s newspaper.
2. In what ways is this case similar to the Tinker case? In what ways is it different?
It all happened in school obviously, their rights were taken away by their principals. Their conflicting rights were the same: Freedom of expression. The different part is their result. In Tinker case, they went to the court and they got their rights back but in this case, student didn’t get the rights back, the articles were removed by the order of principal.
3. Examine each of the two opinions on Page 205. Which opinion would you select to decide this case?
Explain your reasoning.
I will select the second option. I don’t really think the principal really have the power to remove students stories from the newspaper. He violate the First Amendment law. I think the students have the right to publish their stories. And also the articles didn’t obstruct the school at all. P.S. I think students can write “You might feel uncomfortable when you read these two story. ” So some of the readers may just skip it.
Life of Pi is a amazing film. I found a interesting story about Life of Pi.
---Where is Pi’s mother?
The story with Tiger is a imaginary story. Pi made it up. In fact, Pi ate his mother in order to survive. When Pi asked the girl from the dance class. He asked her “What is the lotus in the forest?” The girl didn’t answer that question. Later, we knew that the answer is “Cannibal Island ”. There is a island in the movie, pi stay in that island for one night. At night, pi found a lotus and when he opened it, he found a teeth inside the lotus. And this island is his mom, the director used a metaphor which is out of the ordinary. The acid on the island means his mom was eaten. Acid means gastric acid, and the teeth was her mom’s remains. Pi and the Tiger also ate roots and foxed on the island, roots and foxes represent human’s Muscle fibers and maggots. That means Pi ate human!
This theory is wacky ! After I finish reading it. I thought this might be a horror film for smart people!
Calvin Harris is a DJ and Songwriter. He is the DJ in Rihanna’s song “We found love” and he is my favourite DJ! His tune is creative,infusive and abstract. When you listen to his songs, you will feel you step into a new fancy world.
In 2010, Calvin became a successful DJ. He performed in many different music festival. He also worked with many famed DJ. He went on tour with Rihanna. That gave him a fantastic opportunity to learn. In 2011, he released two songs “Bounce” and “Feel so close”. This two new songs changed his life forever, he became one of the best DJ in this planet and a lot of super stars want to work with him. His solo song “Feel so close” is the 12th on billboard top 100. In 2012, his new song “We’ll be coming back” he won the second prize on the UK Chart and his song with Florence + the Machine won the first prize. Now I think he is the best DJ in UK.
It was really surprising when I noticed that he wanted to be a Football player when he was young. He wanted to be a football like Steve McManaman.

I woke up at 8:44. I used to wake up at 10 o’clock at weekend. But today is very special, today is Sherry’ Birthday. We went Hongqiao Campus. Flavia was there to pick us up. I brought a present for Sherry on the way to Hongqiao Campus. It is a small bear with a date on it. I choose the bear with March 16th on it.
After I arrived at Hongqiao Campus. I stayed in 7-11 and ate my breakfast. Although the food is really cheap there but it is unsavory. I saw Tracy across the street, he hold a bear in his arm. Obviously this is the present for Sherry. After all of the member in our group have arrived, we start our trip. I took us more than an hour to found the assembling place. The assembling place is Sherry’s holiday bungalow. It is really far from downtown. We went to the restaurant in the housing estate and had our lunch there. The lunch was yummy. We flied kites after lunch. Phoebe and I worked together but we are not good at flying kites. Phoebe and I played for 30mins but we spent 20mins on trimming the rope. We went to river and flied Kongming latern. I wrote my wish on it and let it go up in the air. It was really amusing. The weather was terrible in the afternoon, so we played card game inside. We played some kind of Truth or Dare. The only thing I remembered is Koki left a lip print on my face......
At 5 o’clock, we went back to Shanghai. I was tired so I fell asleep on the way to Shanghai. Happy Birthday Sherry!!!!!!
