2013 Resolution

2013 Resolutions
Reflect- I learned that 2012 was an awesome year. Tons of people did amazing things. People jumped from amazing heights, made amazing songs, and improved the world. I learned that tons of famous people passed away this year. For example, the first person to walk on the moon passed away in 2012, also a famous singer named Whitney Houston passed in 2012 also. The daily life has changed because of technological advances in life. For example most people order a bagel and/or a breakfast burrito at their local WAWA. Instead of telling the deli worker there is an electronic touch screen menu to order and get you food ticket printed out and made fresh.
Resolve- My resolutions are to try and eat more food when I have the time to.  Another resolution is to try and drink more soda and other healthy liquids in my spare time. Also I want to gain more weight and muscle . A resolution that I made is stop playing video games everyday. All in all I hope that I can make a positive impact on my life!

Aarif Razak
Period 8
My 20% Project
          My project will be on computer programs and how they work. In my project I will make a program describing the language with a program called “Just Basic” to make these programs. This is called “Just Basic” because it is used to make programs using the computer language Basic. My project is going to be making a program/ game and take multiple screenshots of it and make it into a PowerPoint project. My project will not take long but the program will be the hard part. Luckily this project is fun and entertaining to me so I will enjoy doing it.

Teens and the media

This article is telling me a federal agency is trying to tell and teach young teens about how advertisements help persuade you to buy a product. The agency also made a website to “aducate” young teens about the types of advertisements and how they persuade the public.
 They even made a website called which includes a game to teach teens about products and how they are used and what tactic they use to persuade them. It is not really a website to make sure that they fall for advertisements that make you pay more then you are supposed to do. It also helps you be aware of the tricks they use such as voiceovers, very sad music, famous testimonials, and humor. This article is very useful to teens and kids.
It also has made teens aware of what the buy nowadays. For example, ads about the iphone and other phones had made a huge impact on teens. On my bus I see tons of 7th and 8th graders with them, in fact I have an iphone myself! One quote that stands out to me is “So they can make you better, more informed choices of what they shop.” This website is very useful to parents to help kids understand where they are coming from when they ask for something.
In this entire website has informed me of advertising has affected culture and daily life as we know it. It has improved my awareness of advertisements and how they affect teens everywhere. This rogate lesson was amazing.
