sprit bear

In the book touching spirit bear the main characters name is Cole Matthews, and through his life he has made some bad decisions, one of them so bad that he has to go through a heeling circle, where they diced to send him to an island where he will have to fend for him self, and take responsibility for his own actions, when he gets there he tries to escape and gets mauled by a bear.I think Cole deserved to go to the hearing circle, it was quite generous of them to do that for Cole, but Cole abused his gift and almost died. now he is back and they have to decide what to do with him. if i was on the hearing circle i would make it so he was on parole to watch to see if he has actually changed and become a better person, and a better member of society, and if he proved himself i would let him go, i think the rout of the problem was his dad beating him, because this would make him build up anger that he would takeout on some one else, and now that they know his dad was beating him they can stop him so Cole can start over. i almost feel bad for Cole because in the hearing circle no one believes him even though he is telling the truth, he saw the spirit bear and even got some of his hair but he through the hair out.

Hello viewers this is my GINS litspiraiton challenge #4
for this we had to choose a quote from the book (short story), that we found described the book the best.
I chose the short story pretty flowers because it is what i have been doing most of my posts about and the quote i choose "You know what Papa said. Get it perfect on an orange first. Opium is money. We can't afford you to have you ruining money." I found this quote on page 20.
the next part is we had to make word art and for this I put the text over a picture of a army guy guarding a opium field  because this shows how close the field was to them. and the text is to show that they had a bumpy road with ups and downs, until it hit the bottom where they had to restart.

I hope you liked this post please leave comments below.

gins post #7

Every day I wake up eat breakfast, then it is out to the field, I spend most of the day there harvesting the pretty flowers to sell at the market, to make money for my family, I was making pretty good money as these are some of the most desired flowers, every body wanted some, until one day these men came with bulldozers and dozed all of our fields, and our houses, I had no idea what to do with my family. How was I going to feed them and shelter them?  How was I going to make a living? Starting the field wasn’t easy and to years to make, and if I did start a new one they would just tear it down again.
Maybe I could start sheep herding or become a merchant at the market, yeah that would be a easy way to make money.

Global charter of rights

 Hello to day in class we wrote a charter of rights and freedoms but for a global scale,
when making this charter i thought it was going to be harder but after we started writing, it  seemed like we had a lot of the same ideas, there where a couple of times we did not agree though like the right to a job this is one of the things we talked about and how every one should have a job but then we thought that what if there are not enough jobs for people to do and what if people where lade off or fired then how could we promise them a new job, besides that there where not any more arguments or disputes.
A lot of the rights on our charter are close to the ones on the charter of rights and freedoms we have a couple that our different, like the right to a family this is one we came up with on our one and it says that you can have a family but with no more then 3 kids (to stop people from over populating).
thank you for reading!

Afganistan connections

I am do the book lunch with Lennin and there are a bunch of stories but i choose pretty flowers which takes place in Afghanistan.
While researching i found  out that Afghanistan has 32 provinces and a constitution of rights, as Canadians we kind of think of Afghanistan as a war country even though they are trying to make things better, but there are two big organizations the government and the Taliban and the government try's to control the country but the Taliban is so big that it is hard to stop them. in the charter it states that they have: language rights, civil and human rights and, a right to religions. If the Canadian charter was applied i think it would still be the same the only thing i think would be different is the right to vote because the president decides who will run each Provence, where if they can vote people in they might be able to make a difference.

thank you for reading

The Underground Market

In our GINS and research in economic systems we have learned alot and now we have to relate the two.
In all of the stores there is one market that all of the people have used and that is the black market, because this is where they buy all of there drugs, this is one market that is illegal but still has a lot of customers and this is because a cross the world many people resort to drug use because it makes them feel better, but also a lot of people that sell drugs because it is a profitable business, this happens a lot in real life too especially in poorer country's like Afghanistan where more then 100,000 families grow drugs to get money to feed there families and there kids  because there are not as many sustainable jobs for them to do.
Selling drugs is also a sustainable job because people do it and then they get addicted and need to come back for more so the drug dealers are not lacking for customers.
