Trial of Oscar Pistorius By: Andres Mendoza In this article, I´m going to talk about the Oscar Pistorius case, where he is accused of assassinating his girlfriend Reeya Steenkamp in his house in Pretoria, South Africa; and I´m going to make my opinion about it. The bail hearing started on February 19, 2013. During the hearing, both prosecution and defense said that Pistorius had fired four shots through a locked toilet door, hitting Steenkamp three times inside. The Prosecutor claimed that Pistorius had put on his prosthetic legs, walked across his bedroom to the bathroom, and intentionally shot Steenkamp through the door. But Pistorious said that he had thought that his girlfriend was in the bed, and that the person in the toilet was an intruder.

In this part, I think that what Pistorius did was wrong, because I don´t agree that he shot accidentally his girlfriend, because he thought it was an intruder. What he had to do was to check who was in the bathroom, and then stop the intruder, but not to shoot him. Anyways, the intention of Pistorius was to kill someone, he could kill his girlfriend or the intruder and still is a crime. I think he killed his girlfriend, because instead of shooting randomly the bathroom, he should check who was there, and then act, but not shooting through the bathroom. It was a bad decision to shoot like that, he didn´t saw the consequences of this, and now he is in trouble, he risked his career as a professional sprinter. The trial still goes on, and I thing that the judge should convict Pistorius for all the events occurred in his house. I say, that everything that happened in that event, ruined his career as a professional sprinter, he must thought about all the consequences that could happened to him, and were bad consequences.

Recycling for a better environment

By: Andres Mendoza

Currently, we live in a world where we are not interested in recycling. That´s one of the reasons the world is invades by pollution. The people nowadays don’t care a lot about the environment; simply they just throw the garbage wherever they want. In this essay, I will mention the benefits that recycling can bring to the world, and my ideas, of how to recycle. For example, in Mexicali (the city where I live), is one of the most contaminated cities in Mexico, and is, because of the air pollution and the soil pollution. It´s also said that the pollution that generates this city is one of the leading causes of death, with different types of cancers, like lung cancer, bladder cancer, and can bring heart diseases, respiratory diseases, etc. That´s why I´m against pollution, because of the causes of death in the population, and because it´s the cause of damaging the nature. I have some ideas that can prevent all this problems, it´s impossible to disappear it, but can make a lot of difference, because if a lot of people don’t think about the bad consequences of not taking care the nature, it could be late. We can make the difference, and start recycling, it´s not too late, but in the future could be late, and worst. My idea is to make recycling campaigns, to promote environmental stewardship. Campaigns that explain the benefits that recycling cans, bottles, paper, etcetera, could bring. With this activity, we can make the people aware that recycling is good for the environment, and is a good way for saving raw materials. And instead of get rid of the recycling materials, you could reuse it, like for example, with bottles, you can make a recycling chair, or you can create new toys, or another interesting things, and with this happening, we could save, like 50% more raw materials. In conclusion, if we start recycling, we could have positive results in the environment. This is, with the finality of having a clean place to live, and the future generations would live in a better environment. Always be aware what you throw in the trashcan, if it’s a recycle material, reuse it, it could wave the nature, it could save the animals, the trees, and it could save you. Don’t pollute, for the welfare of the planet. Let’s recycle!

The voices I stand upon an inhabited plain of vanished days and years and over its gloomy waiste some strange, sad voices I hear, some voice from out the shadowed past; and one I call regret, whose memories remains yet. Then failure speaks in bitter tones, and with all this damage, with regrets, whose deep and cruel stings my painful reveals itself. This make these voices that speak to me and disappear, like shadow part; and tears drop thick and fast. But when, within the wide domain in the future day and year I stand, and over its illuminating plain On sweeter voice I heard I will listen gladly, and obey the voice of opportunity.

Personal Experience By: Juan Carlos Woolfolk

When you are a teenager you make things that you aren't conscious about, like the one that I will tell you on this personal experience. I was just 15 years old; my father had given me a Bora Volkswagen 2006. I never thought about the new responsibilities that I needed to assume, I just got the car and drive. I remember exactly, April-20-2012, it was a Friday in the afternoon like at 8:00pm, I was with my friends on my car, but we were going to San Pedro, because I was giving a ride to a friend for his car, so he joined me to a place, but I needed to hurry. People were waiting for me in another place. I increased the car speed on a very small and winding street, the street had sand on the sides, on a very big wind y couldn't control my car so I crushed on a wall, I entered a house of Vistahermosa Residencial by the back and break a few glasses, and by the impulse of the speed the car returned to the opposite direction that I was going. The car was wrecked and shattered, the airbag was out, I can't remember the crush very well, everything was so fast, but nothing happened to us. My other friends that were on the back of the car don't have the duty belt, but nothing happened to them. We weren't drinking, so the only problem was whit the guy of the house that I needed to pay the glasses, so we can stay out of the problem. I thank god that nothing happened to us. I really learned new manners to treat a car. Through this experience my responsibility started to get more serious, I started to understood a lot of things that a teenager don’t understand until she or he make this types of errors, that makes them wake up in a responsible manner. Sincerely the next days that I had the accident, I can’t saw my father with the same face that I had seen it a few days ago, but my dad acted in a very responsible way, he talk with me, instead of yelling at me or punish me. Obviously I don’t asked my dad for permissions that I know that I don’t deserve, and sincerely, I thanked my father for acting with a very mature level.

Horoscope by: By: Juan Carlos Woolfolk Aries (March 21 - April 19) Comfortable? Good. Because you'll be interviewing potential partners for the next few days, and you'll need to give that tender task your full attention. Yes, it's a tough job. But heaven knows if anyone is up for tough jobs, it's you. Now settle down, pull out your yellow legal pad and your special pen, and get to work. Only so many hours are in a day. Taurus (April 20 - May 20) This could be tricky -- the whole day, that is. The good news is you're entirely familiar with the concept of doing battle, so if someone tries to put one over on you, no matter who they happen to be, you absolutely won't stand for it. That goes double for anyone who thinks higher of their own authority than they really should. It might be time to take them down a peg or two. Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Most of the planet doesn't deal well with change. Fortunately, you just love it. You're a living example of how great the ebb and flow of the universe can be. Keep those facts in mind today when you're trying to deal with others who aren't quite so open to last-minute modifications in their carefully planned schedules. They may not be kindred spirits, but they're fellow humans. Convince them to loosen up. Cancer (June 22 - July 22) Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to navigate a very delicate situation: Tending to your family duties and satisfying your urge to climb the career ladder. Well, if anyone can do it, you can. Tenacity, after all, is your specialty -- even so, staying diligent may be trickier than usual. Not to worry: If you work your magic the way you always have, you’ll pull it off. Leo (July 23 - August 22) You’ve done everything you possibly could to avoid having this conversation, but you’re not on the planet alone. So while you won’t relish having to say certain things, you can at least stop blaming yourself. Remember, you’re only half responsible. It definitely takes two to tango, and today’s dance is no exception. So say what you have to say, then move on with your life. The weekend looks great, by the way, so get over this rough spot and you’ll have it made. Virgo (August 23 - September 22) Don’t take any guff from someone who thinks they have you over a barrel because they know your secrets -- and how badly you want to protect them. You happen to know something just as potentially volatile about your tormentor. Not that you’d really ever choose to say anything about it. But do make it clear you know what they’re up to and you’re not going to play their game. Not for a second.

Libra (September 23 - October 22) Bet you’re feeling a bit tired right about now, hmm? Especially if you were out and about last night, playing with your friends or perhaps your main squeeze. Well, grab yourself a power nap, because last-minute changes in your plans for the evening could mean you’ll be up late once again. And if you can’t fit in a nap? Oh, well. As the saying goes, ‘You can sleep when you’re dead.’ But don’t worry, a good night’s rest is right around the corner. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) It’s an instant replay of yesterday, complete with every last stumbling block, barrier and impediment you could possibly have imagined -- as well as a couple you hadn’t. You being you, however, these challenges will only sweeten the pot. You’ll gladly jump through every hoop, navigate every obstacle on the course and do whatever it takes to get where you want to be. At that point, feel free to sit, relax and gloat. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) As optimistic as you ordinarily are, there’s one particular person out there who can bring you down, make you doubt yourself and others and set you to wondering if it’s really at all worth the effort you’ve invested. Your mission, right now, is to avoid that person for at least the next 48 hours. It’s not that you’ll never see them again. But you need all the positive energy you can muster. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19) It might not be fun, and it probably won’t go down in your mental scrapbook as the best on record, but once you’ve made it through this day, you’ll feel really good about yourself -- as if you’ve accomplished something. So when it seems as if the universe is throwing everything but the kitchen sink between you and where you need to be, don’t give up. Ever heard about testing what you’re made of? That’s what’s going on -- and this is one test you’re guaranteed to pass. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) You have put everything you possibly could into making this thing work, but relationships can certainly develop minds of their own once they get going. Basically, for the past few weeks, you have been taking one step forward and two steps back. If you are not quite ready to end it, don’t worry. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a friendship, a romance or a business connection, this partnership will wait until all conditions are absolutely right. Pisces (February 19 – march 20) They can certainly try to put one over on you, but it’s not going to work. You have come up with a brand new approach to life. So when someone comes to you for your opinion, you will be happy to share it. Just try to be gentle. Today’s buffet of astrological energies could leave you looking a bit more stern and uncompromising than you really are.


Alcohol in adolescence by: By: Juan Carlos Woolfolk

They are many types of answers of why does the teenager like to drink alcohol. Teenagers like a lot the manner of being drinking alcohol in parties or in places where they can have fun. In each country the norms are different, and this depends a lot about how adolescents treat their attitudes. Also Generations had been changing, and this depends if people drink more or less. In my opinion, I think that children’s attitude has to be with the one their parents had when they were kids or if the friends that she/he has like to get drunk too. An example is, if one of their parents, either his/her mom or his/her father, like to get drunk very often, the children will have the possibilities that like to get drunk to. Talking about the friends that the adolescent has, nobody it’s obligated to drink alcohol, if you like it and you want to drink it, you will start to drink alcohol. All depends on you, also you can set limits on when you are going to start and stop drinking, and like this way you will avoid many problems about when you are drunk. You as a person you should not let you manipulate by your friends, also you will have the possibility to become a manipulator, and manipulate other people. I think the country we live depends a lot about the norms this have, example, in the U.S.A. the age for drink alcohol its 21, I think adolescent don’t waited and drink more than other countries. In Europe, in some countries, you can drink alcohol at 16 years old, this depends of the despair that adolescents have. In Mexico you can drink at 18 years old. Obviously adolescents don’t waited until 21, 16, or 18 years old, they don’t think and just started drinking when their friends do it. In my opinion, the people who drink alcohol in a moderate way, learn more things, have a better experiences of life, I am not saying that people who get drunk are cooler, I only mean that this people can learn things that you only learn living them.

Due to the immense drought in Mexicali B.C. has had in this 2014 in the forest zones it has a risk to get on turn of fire mostly from the month of May until the end of summer due to the strength of the sun in the drought grounds of the forests.

It was a great day I was in Rosarito with my friends we were down the beach just chilling and having some fun, when we decided to play some soccer so we went on and started playing. When we were at the end on a really long game that have been on for hours we were really tired but we had to make the last push to break the tie so we said last goal wins it all we had bet a barrel of beer for the winner and the losers would pay it I went on as the goalkeeper all the game and I was making a great show I had been unstoppable, and even though I was tired I felt great so as soon as the overtime started the other team took the ball and we started playing it went on and on for some time and finally they throw a really fast throw at the goal and I jump towards the ball but the sun blinded me so I jumped totally blind and I felt how the ball hit me in the face I started bleeding from the nose and the mouth and the worst problem was that the ball got in and everybody started laughing even though I was almost dead in the floor, that’s when I decided never too be a goalkeeper, it’s a bad idea.

Literary Criticism by: Roberto de la Herran

The book “Tres metros sobre el cielo” it’s a novel written by Federico Moccia en 1992 and it’s written in first person which makes it more interesting and easy for the reader to fully understand the novel. The story starts with the two main characters each one of them getting ready to start their day, Babi a girl with a rich family a girl who has had everything, but at the same time she has a very strict parents which want the best for her, in the other hand you have Hugo Olivera “H” a boy that family problems have changed the way in which he sees life. The autor makes with the two main characters fall in love even though they are very different in their way of being, but that doesn’t matter because they fall in love but no novel its good unless it has drama in the love story, the author manages to make you fall in love with the book and even in the love that Babi and H have. The title “Tres metros sobre el cielo” comes out in the book when Babi it’s in the car in her way to school and as she looks to the sky she sees in a bridge the sentence “Tu y yo a tres metros sobre el cielo” it was something that H made for her. The book also has other great characters and other love stories as the one of “Pollo” the best friend of “H” and Katina the best of friend of Babi, the four of them live the best moments of their lives being in love. The author makes it really easy for the reader to like the book because it’s a novel that has everything anyone, who likes books would like that is: passion, love, action, drama, hate, death it has everything and even though the book may have a sad end, it really shows that in life, real life not everything is flowers and fun it shows you that not everything in life will happened the way you wanted, that love stories don’t always have happy endings, and if you don’t fight for what you want you are never going to have it. In conclusion it’s a great novel, so great that it even has another two sequels named: “Tengo ganas de ti” and “Por to amor” also great books of the same author Federico Moccia, I recommend all three of those books because the author makes you love the books so much you won’t want to stop reading.

Movie Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

By: Manuel german

The movie is the second part of the story of Captain America, it has some details from other Marvel movies and you can see a small trailer from the next movie at the end of the movie if you watch it on the theater, it is a good movie. The movie starts with the captain in Washington living normal life with friends but he has to do a mission, in that mission the black widow steals some information and the captain doesn’t like it so there’s were the problems start because people get killed and there’s a disaster in SHIELD. The bad guys from the first movie appear again but this time they were inside SHIELD all the time, so captain America and the black widow have to run from them and escape with the help of a friend of captain America, they have to save the world from destruction because the bad people want to kill everyone that gets on their way. There is a lot of action in the movie, you see a lot of bombs and technology, you also see some comments about other Marvel movies like Iron Man and Thor and SHIELD, you will see a lot of movement not like in the first movie that has more story, here you already know the captain so he just keeps fighting all the movie because all want to kill him. A very interesting thing about this movie is all the secrets, you never know who the bad guy is because they all keep secrets so you get surprises and you also see characters from the other movie so you must see the first one to understand the second or you will get lost, you also need to see all the other Marvel movies or you will get lost because they do talk a lot about the other movies and characters. The movie is very big, it lasts 2 hours so you better get some popcorn, but it was very fun to watch because action movies are always good, if you stay until the very end you will like very much the trailer they put because it’s about avengers 2 and it was awesome they show you how the story will be by showing the new weapon the same bad people will be using, the surprise is that we have already seen this weapon! But you will have to watch the movie if you want to know what it is

Nostalgia Cartoon Childs by: Manuel German

We are a generation that was born in the 90’s, Cartoon Network was born on 1994 and it had such a great and original programming, some of the series that were on that time are Dexter’s Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow and Chicken , The Power puff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog and many more. Most of us can remember getting home and turning the television on to watch some cartoons and those were some of our favorites because those were pretty much all of them apart from the nickelodeon ones we all loved Sponge Bob at some point of our life, I can steel remember watching Dragon Ball Z on the afternoon, we can even sing the Pokémon song because that was our childhood. The 90’s kids were the type of kids you saw playing outside or inside watching television or playing with a GameCube, we didn’t have an iPhone, most of us didn’t had a music player until like 12 years, and of course we didn’t have a cellphone because we didn’t need those things, we were happy kids that liked cartoons and even playing outside because we didn’t spent all the time inside just watching television we did like to go and play sports outside and we liked tazos. It is nostalgic to remember how television was and even how toys were because I can steel remember my own little cars and how much I liked to play with them, but things have change, now everything is online, kids no longer watch television because they have Netflix, kids don’t even know how old sponge bob is, he is even older than some of us 90’s kids, they don’t know our beautiful cartoons and the great anime you could see freely on television. Most of the people on my generation might miss our loved cartoons but Netflix does come to use because most of our cartoons are there, we can live those moments again with a simple click so we might say that this new kids will miss how good our old cartoons were but the truth is there are some awesome cartoons now, like adventure time and other cartoon network specials, those are good and we could also enjoy them just as the 2000 kids do. Just as we grow up our favorite channels change, they grow bigger as we do and they need to change, but gladly there is still boomerang! They pass our old and favorite television shows just for us the old kids that love cartoons because we grew with them and we can’t never forget how well where the moments when we could just enjoy cartoons as we got home from school.

SURVEY By: Yonathan Rodriguez This survey has the purpose of gathering information to know how people like their ice cream, which is their favorite product and things like how much they pay for it and where they buy it. The people voted for chocolate as their favorite ice cream flavor, followed by vanilla and cookies and cream, they also choose strawberry for the fourth place. Some of the people in the survey said that they didn’t eat ice cream! There were only like 2 but that is surprising since most of them said that they ate ice cream 1-2 times a week, we all love ice cream. The prices in ice cream vary must of the people said that they paid from 4-6 dlls per ice cream, some paid 1-3 dlls and almost no one paid more than 6 dlls, they usually bought their ice cream at Dairy Queen, people love blizzards, and at second place Thrifty, the original one, some said that they bought it at a store or a fast food restaurant. Almost everyone preferred their ice cream either on a cone or a cup, except the ones that didn’t eat ice cream, weirdoes and the ones that ate directly from the box; most of the people also added chocolate to their ice cream! There’s never enough chocolate, some fruits or candy , those where the favorite answers. When I asked them if they ate ice cream at summer must of them said yes but some also said that it didn’t matter, then I asked them about winter and most of them said that they didn’t care, they liked ice cream, so we can conclude that people like chocolate ice cream on a cone with more chocolate on summer!

by: Yonathan Rodriguez Before there was an iPod we used to had something call Mp3, yes there was something before Apple, this portable devices could storage music and play it, it was invented by a German company, it can only play MPEG audio files, Mp3 where not huge things they were quite small and light, at that time those were the best since you could listen music without a CD but no with the same great quality as one. So when did this Mp3 became iPods the story begins on 2001 when iTunes digital jukebox software was introduced and Apple presented the iPod with the slogan” 1000 songs in your pocket” , imagine that at the beginning of the 21 century , it was a huge thing everyone was so excited about it and Apple kept delivering by 2002 the iPod was compatible with Windows this was his entrance to a huge market. With the iPod iTunes came, this was also a huge change for the music industry because now CD’s were a thing of the past, there’s were virtual music libraries were presented and now you could buy your songs online at 99 cents along with the new third generation iPod, it was 2003 when iTunes store became available to Windows users and the same year were they reached the 25 million song downloads. Music got even smaller when they introduced the iPod shuffle, everything was getting smaller, now music was about downloads and a new war against piracy began, artist don’t gain that much profit from CD’s now must of the money they make comes from concerts, technology has brought great things to the music industry such as this revolutionary iPods. Now we are a touch generation, almost any music device has a touch interface and it can storage more than 1000 songs (depending on the quality). Now, almost every cell phone has a music player because music is available almost everywhere, there are tons of music libraries online. iPod is probably the favorite music player because of his capacity and design, but the price is as high as ever, people love Apple products. Nowadays it’s easy to acquire music, technology has opened the gates for the music industry letting people hear more music, anytime, anywhere and probably at a higher price. Thanks to Apple and their awesome invents people enjoy more the experience of hearing music, because that is what they have done, improving the experience of hearing music.
