Dear Leonardo Di Caprio

We jus saw the documenary "Before the flood", and we were very surprised by the extreme environmental change caused by human actions. I was most surprised by the sand oil extraction procedure and the Mordor-looking area.

I`m gonna be honest. A lot of what you showed us in the movie i already knew, like the palm oil plantations and ice melting on Greenland. Still, it is unimaginable until you actually see it, and after watching the documentary i was extremely surprised of how devastating these things actually look in real life.

The most important thing to remember from the movie is in my opinion the footage of the rainforests and orangutangs. This would have a very emotional effect on people, and maybe encourage them to watch the movie or (even better) change their lifestyle.

Spare parts review

The fact that the movie is so similar to the original story, amazed me.

The items the team had to use on the robot, forced them to think in new ways, eventually leading to them being the only team to finish the last task.

Robots can be used for a lot more than just for fun and entertainment, they are highly useful in areas like health, transport and making our lives easier, now robots have replaced many jobs, which is a bad thing. Robots can also be used in warfare instead of human beings.

Trumps government has employed a very strict immigration policy, which makes it a lot harder for foreigners to enter the US.

About a boy nick hornby

About a boy

The book is mostly about growing up, and behaving accordingly to age, but I also found certain symbols, telling us about some problems and or subthemes. An example is Fiona, she might be a symbol for a person with mental disorders or problems, that the modern society may not care about/treat very well. Marcus may also be a symbol of the problem that "different" boys always get bullied. The fact that Will is a man, may also be a symbol of that men are childish but that`s a wild guess.

The biok setting is London in the late 90s. That`s where the movie gets it wrong because Will is driving a 2003 Audi tt coupe.

The plot: Marcus is not a normal boy, he listens to Joni Mitchell, sings songs a lot, and has problems connecting and bonding with other kids. 
Will is a cool dude, subzero cool. He lives off his grandad`s song, he is rich, has a lot of friends, smokes weed, has sex with lots of girls, and listened to rap and cool music. He is the opposite of Marcus. In the book, Marcus` mother goes to a SPAT club, a club for single mothers to talk together. Will becomes part of the SPAT club so he can find a single mother to have sex with. Will finds a funny and attractive woman, Suzie. She is also Marcus` mother's friend. Marcus` mother is suicidal. Marcus joins Suzie and Will on a picnic and kills a duck. Marcus gets to know Will better and better until they become sort of friends. Marcus grows younger mentally and stops helping his mother, and Will grows older and starts caring about people.

How to turn information into intelligence:
The most common way to practice for a test or learn something, in general, is by using the promodoro technique. The promodoro technique is to focus intensively for 25 minutes, take a 5-minute break, repeat. This is because the brain actually processes problems when we`re not studying, so after studying for 25 minutes, we may have some problems that we can`t understand or solve. Then after five minutes, we return to the same problems, and all of a sudden they seem really simple and easy.

This is also why sleep is so important. If you study in the evening and then get a good nights rest, the brain will be working while you`re sleeping, not only solving problems but also storing information. The human brain remembers information processed before going to sleep a lot better than if you had stayed awake.

So for most people, one of the best ways to study is by using the promodoro method after dinner. Also, you should get something good to eat, as a treat for actually doing something. Also, the brain runs on glucose only, so lots of brownie breaks are necessary...

Conversion in english class lekse

Conversation 1
I discussed with Ari if marihuana should or should not be legalized in norway. I wasnt very fund of the idea before, but after this conversation, i have changed my mind about the subject. I now think that it shoukd be legalized.

Did the video make me better at convos?
I feel that in conversation nr 2, when discussing the book with Erlend, we truly had a very good conversation about it. We were both interested in the subject, and weboth asked questions instead of talking all the time. The video sure had an effect on my conversational skills. a
