Mr 4

Screen Shot 2014-07-29 at 10.26.38 am.pngThe idea or the concept of a mascot is to represent the team or nation that is holding the commonwealth games. A mascot is a person in a costume that is suppose to bring good luck. The mascot for 2010 delhi commonwealth games was Shera the tiger.


This years mascot is a thistle.  Beth Gilmour. the colours are there because the thistle turns purple at the top when fully grown and thistles grow everywhere in Scotland.


This is my design concept for a Mascot if we were to host the Commonwealth Games in NZ

I think the 4 square guy is appropriate for a mascot for the Commonwealth Games because he is a very well known symbol in NZ. he wears Sandals because Kiwis always wear sandals in the summer and he holds fish & chips because when foreign people try to Imitate a kiwi accent they always say fish & chips.

The Dangers And Effects of Marijuana.


For the past two weeks we have been attending the Life Education Caravan to learn about the effects and dangers of drugs and alcohol and what the body does when we make the transition through puberty. We mainly focused on drugs, I have chosen to write about the drug marijuana.

Marijuana, One of the worlds most well known drug. This drug is known as a gateway drug, meaning it introduces other people to more drugs. It is usually the first drug people start off with because it is cheap, you have easy access to it and it is easy to grow, Especially in the sunlight.

The main reason people choose to use marijuana is to fit in, to relieve stress, to escape from all of your negativity, to act cool (but they're not.) and mostly for the effect. I’ve heard marijuana can cause you to laugh a lot and put your body into a state of mind where everything seems weird.

Marijuana is really dangerous because if you choose to do it and Overdose (also known as O.D) can lead to serious brain damage and even death. Over the period of time we spent in the life caravan I have heard many people tell their stories about why they chose to use drugs.

When you choose to do marijuana you are choosing to upset your brain by stuffing up the neurons. For example, the synapse in-between your neurons is like a channel of water if there is a storm the boat cannot make it across as fast as it could. so when you take drugs a storm happens between your neurons in the synapse, therefore the messages your brain is trying to tell you processes slowly and you will get the message 3-5 seconds later.

Astria

Today we played A game called Astria. The most difficult part of the game was my partner. There was no hard parts just that my partner kept pushing random things. I pretty much found everything easy because it only took us about ten minutes to get to the council. Everything up to the council and submitting our last presentation. The thing I will remember before playing the game next week is to tell my partner to not push random things.
