The first full week

Hey everybody! The first full week of school has come to end. My classes are going pretty well for the most part. (even though I’m not real sure about my credits) I’m thinking about taking the ACT again to see if I make any higher on it then I did the last time. Nothing too much has happened this week unfortunately, but I have two tests next week. Taking Jesus Back to School is coming up in a few weeks and I’m hoping to do a couple posts about that. By the way i revieved a suggestion for someone who read one of my previous blogs that I should turn my senior year into a story and tell it that way. (well she said put it in a third-person format) So I’m going to give that a try. So Jeyna Grace if you read this thank you for the suggestion I’m going to try it out. So ya’ll please be looking for that and my peoms if I ever do write any. lol 🙂 See ya’ll later!

The “last” first weekend

Ok, I know I should have posted this sooner,  but the “last” first weekend  has come for the seniors of 2012. Yes, sadly it has. For me nothing much has happened this past weekend just went to church and that’s about it. I wish I had done more and made it memorablybut I didn’t. 😦 But the year isn’t over yet so maybe something will happen. I’m sorry for not having much to put in this post, but the year is still early so I’ll try to make my post more interseting for ya’ll. If ya’ll have any ideas for blog posts please comment below and I’ll see what I can do. I want my senior year series to be interseting for you guys. I’m hoping to post some poems on year as the year goes by so be looking for those, and I’ll proably do some posts on more youth teips I go on so be looking for that as well. I’m sorry  if it seems that I’m going on and on. Really I am. So be looking for more posts, and I’ll see ya’ll later bye

last first day of high school

Well, this was my “last” first day of school. It was ok. I only had five classes.(that may change) I still don’t know why they messed up my classes.(talked to the people who are in charge of that and didn’t get many answers) But, other than that things did go pretty smoothly for the most part. My teachers are great.(but we had a sub. in one of my classes) My only concerns for right now are my credits and the ACT. I’m soory I dont have anything real interseting to put in todays post, but I’m hoping that I’ll have some things to put as the year goes on. Oh yea there is the whole issue about how I’m getting home. If my dad comes and gets me then I’ll have to rod the bus in the morning or I can either get one of my senior friends to take me home or I can stay in the library and catch the bus home. I’m not sure what I’m going todo yet, but I’ll let ya’ll guys know. Later!

Just one more year and it will be all over

Today, I “pick” up  schedule at school, then had to turn it back in because they messed it up(took 2 classes off and put me and changed another). I should get it back the first day of school hopefully they wont mess it up again. I also got some test results in (passed YAY!). Hopefully everything else will go smoothly until school gets started. MAybe I’ll try to get a prayer group started this year, or a reading group, or maybe I’ll join some groups,but I’m not sure yet. I’ll find out when I get there. I’m hoping to do some blog posts about school. (not sure if I mentioned that earlier) If anything interseting happens I’ll blog about it. Hopefully this year will be an epic one. So if anything happens I’ll let ya’ll guys know.

Later!

LG CEO’s Slip Supports Retina Display for iPad 3

http://www.pdfdevices.com/lg-ceos-slip-supports-retina-display-for-ipad-3/

Samsung and LG have been the two considerations for Apple’s next tablet production – iPad 3. Both companies have the kind of display technology Apple would want to use on its third gen tablet. The scales tip in LG’s favor as far as winning this deal goes because of the legal unpleasantness that’s only getting worse between Apple and Samsung.

Rumors of an iPad 3 (or iPad 2 Plus) and an iPhone 5 coming out as early as this September have been going around for a while and there are talks of a boosted display on the next iOS tablet. In a meeting with reporters from Korean Times, LG CEO Kwon Young-soo let out an important point with the statement “more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s ‘Retina Display’ that has been used in iPhones and iPads.” Now we know that’s true for iPhone but when he says iPad we can only think he means the upcoming tablet.

Young-soo also criticized Samsung for misleading the market with its OLED display promos saying that the displays are not suitable in terms of picture quality, response time, energy consumption, and contrast ratios for smartphones and tablets.

Rumors of an iPad 3 in September have changed somewhat with the possibility of an iPad 2 Plus or iPad 2 HD that could come with doubled up resolution of 2048x1536p and higher 256dpi, targeting the professional segment. We don’t think Apple will have the Retina display on a bumped up iPad 2 model.  iPad 3 would be our bet.

Apple has slammed a lawsuit on Samsung for copying its tablet and smartphone design with the Galaxy lineup of smartphones and tabs. Samsung is giving back as good as it gets and things are fast reaching melting point. Does this mean Samsung and Apple will no longer be partners? They’ve managed to not let legal troubles get in between their business proceedings till now but with the way things are going, who knows.

 

I just return home from seeing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part two. I must say it was the best out of all the movies. The audince clapped when Molly Weasley killed Bellatrix Lestrange, cheer when Nagini, and did the same at the end of the movie. It was really cool the way Voldemort’s death scene was.(you’re going to have to see the movie to find out). It was also very sad because some of m favorite charaters died in this movie, but other than that it was a very good movie and I hope ya’ll see it. bye

http://blog.movies.yahoo.com/blog/1696-arnold-schwarzenegger-ready-to-give-that-hollywood-comeback-another-shot/?nc

When Arnold Schwarzenegger announced back in May that he was putting the brakeson restarting his Hollywood career after the news of his illegitimate child got out, did we assume that we’d start hearing whispers about his comeback’s comeback less than two months later? No, but it appears that the guy may step in front of the cameras as soon as September. That sure seems fast.

Deadline’s Nikki Finke reported yesterday (later confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter) that Arnold is interested in the Lionsgate Western “The Last Stand.” Interestingly, this is something that he’s been kicking around since at least April when it seemed like either a new “Terminator” or a drama called “Cry Macho” would be his first post-governor gig. But “The Last Stand” will be the English-language debut of South Korean filmmaker Kim Ji-woon, who most recently did the twisty revenge thriller “I Saw the Devil” and is known for a kinetic style and for leap-frogging from genre to genre with each movie. (This is actually his second Western: His first, “The Good, the Bad, the Weird,” came out last year.) The director described “The Last Stand” to Slashfilm back in February:

“[I]t’s kind of a combination of ‘Die Hard’ and ‘High Noon’ where [the latter] was about protecting something very important that needs to be protected, while ‘Die Hard’ is a very drawn-out, long process that almost kills someone in the process, so my  film will be something that has to be very well protected and in the  process, we almost die protecting it in a way. So if ‘I Saw the Devil’ was about a person’s extreme remorse about  having lost something that they couldn’t protect, ‘The Last Stand’ would be where someone puts their lives on the line to protect something that’s very important and it will be a bit more optimistic film in that regard.”

A Lionsgate insider boiled it down a little more succinctly to Finke, calling it “an old-fashioned Western specifically designed for a 63-year-old  broken-down guy with a moral decision whether Arnold decides to stand up  for his town.”

If “The Last Stand” indeed is the horse Arnold’s backing for his Hollywood comeback, it makes some sense. From everything we know about “The Last Stand,” it’s a movie where Schwarzenegger plays a down-on-his-luck guy who finds his shot at redemption. Sort of like Sylvester Stallone with “Cop Land” or even Mel Gibson with “The Beaver.” In other words, a redemption tale, which is one of the easiest way for aging or disgraced stars to ask the audience, “So … we’re cool, right?” Just one word of warning for Arnold, though: “Cop Land” and “The Beaver” both bombed.

Turnout key as Moroccans vote on king’s reforms

Thousands of people gather as they take part in a rally to support the government's project for constitutional reform during a peaceful protest in Casablancahttp://news.yahoo.com/turnout-key-moroccans-vote-kings-reforms-091824853.html

RABAT (Reuters) – Moroccans voted on Friday in a referendum on a revised constitution offered by King Mohammed to placate “Arab Spring” street protesters and the “yes” camp was tipped to win despite boycott calls by opponents.

The new charter explicitly grants the government executive powers, but retains the king at the helm of the army, religious authorities and the judiciary and still allows him to dissolve parliament, though not unilaterally as is the case now.

That falls far short of the demands of the “February 20” protest movement, which wants a parliamentary monarchy where the king’s powers would be kept in check by elected lawmakers.

However the movement so far has not attracted the mass support of popular uprisings that toppled the leaders of Tunisia and Egypt. It urged Moroccans to boycott the vote and said a low turnout would back their calls for more radical reforms.

Turnout stood at 26 percent by midday local time (1100 GMT), according to the interior ministry. Preliminary results were due to be announced late on Friday, a ministry spokesman said.

“I voted ‘yes’ because we have to obey the Commander of the Faithful,” retired agriculture ministry engineer Samira Denguir said in the middle-class Hassan suburb of the capital Rabat, referring to the king’s religious role.

“A large ‘yes’ vote with a high abstention rate or spoiled ballots is not a great result, and the monarchy, Makhzen and (political) parties know it,” said Lise Storm, senior lecturer in Middle East politics at the University of Exeter in England.

The Makhzen is the royal court seen by many Moroccans as a largely unaccountable and shadowy political and business elite.

The 47-year-old ruler has had some success in repairing the legacy of human right abuses, high illiteracy and poverty he inherited after his late father’s 38-year rule ended in 1999.

WESTERN ALLY

A staunch Western ally, Morocco under King Mohammed has stepped up cooperation against terrorism and illegal migration, notably with the European Union which is keen to avoid the spread of Islamic militancy along its southern shores.

But while his personal popularity is expected to swing many voters in favor of the reforms, the margin of victory could be eroded by resentment at wide disparities between rich and poor, and a sense of alienation from the political elite.

“I’m not voting because I couldn’t get my voter card and to be totally honest I couldn’t care less. If they really mean good they would have done it years ago,” said market trader Younes Driouki, 29, heading to the beach with his surfboard.

Results of an online poll conducted by independent portal Lakome.com showed 52 percent of 51,200 participants saying they would boycott the referendum. The vast bulk of the rest said they would vote in favor, but such a low turnout would raise questions about the credibility of the exercise.

Some 13 million people registered to vote — more than 6 million fewer than the 19.4 million Moroccans over 19 years old in a 2009 census. Moroccans above 18 are eligible to vote.

Hamid Benchrifa, an analyst from the Social Development Agency, said the disparity may be due either to voters not updating their identity cards after changing address, or a simple lack of interest in politics.

The February 20 movement has brought together Islamists bent on setting up an Islamic caliphate and secular left-wingers focusing on what they see as rising levels of corruption.

They say they will continue their common fight for a system of parliamentary monarchy and more curbs on the king’s powers.
