Rhetoric!!! What would you do if an opponent was making rude remarks about you in closing minuets of a game? Remember the time when the French soccer player Zinedine Zidane head-butted the Italian soccer player Marco Materazzi in the ending minuets of the world cup of 2006. The historic head-butt marked the end of the great French International player Zinedine Zidane. A huge statue portraying Zidane head-butting the Italian player has been erected in front of Paris Centre Pompidou Modern Art Museum. Zidane was a very talented player, he played for Real Madrid FC from Spain, and Juventus FC from Italy. He helped France to victory at the 1998 World Cup. But in the 110th minute of the World Cup final in 2006 against Italy, Zidane lowered his head and rammed Marco Materazzi chest, knocking him to the ground. this became a very historic moment for france. +Statue+Sculpture.jpg

Animal Extinction! PSA!: Animal Extinction is a big problem. Animals are getting hurt and no one should be treated like animals have been treated. This PSA has helped me out to see and try to help out these poor little animals that have been suffering for years. People look at animal extinction like is not a serious problem, but it is. People should look at this PSA and see how you can help out.


Breast Cancer! PSA! Evaluation!: Breast cancer is a serious issue. This PSA was very good, it showed how it can damage people's life's. and most of all how people try to help out by donating. Its very sad to see woman and men suffering from cancer. This PSA shows how much people really care and try to help out.

Racism PSA Evaluation: This PSA was great. i liked how students don't agree with racism and think its worthless. Racism can be avoid and not taken in by the people. People shouldn't be made fun of their race, skin color, and background. This PSA inspires me to stop people from being racist to others.

Holloween History: Halloween origins date back to the ancient festival of samhian. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of Oct 31 They celebrated Samhian , When it was believed that the ghost of the dead returned to earth.

Christmas! Christmas little kids favorite holiday! Why do little kids like Christmas so much!? I think Christmas is a time were your family bonds more and have a good time opening gifts with the little ones. But do they rally know that we celebrate christmas for the birth of Jesus Christ. I think everyone should know this because it is the real meaning behind christmas and not Santa Clause. But christmas is a day wear everyone should have a good time and open gifts with your family and celebrate.

President Obama's Speech!

On monday President Obama had his second Inauguration. I think he talked about america's freedom, how is very important to us. Also he talked about the republican party and why it has stood out for the past forty years. He pretty much talked about what everyone wanted to hear! About Health Care, etc.

The Actual speech!

Vice President Biden, Mr. Chief Justice, distinguished guests, and fellow president, we bear witness to the the promise of our democracy. We the colors of our skin or the tenets of

members of the United States Congress, citizens, each time we gather to inaugurate a enduring strength of our Constitution. We affirm recall that what binds this nation together is not our faith or the origins of our names.

OBAMA: What makes us exceptional, idea articulated in a declaration made truths to be self-evident, that all men

what makes us America is our allegiance to an more than two centuries ago. We hold these are created equal.

(APPLAUSE) That they are endowed by their creator are life, liberty, and the pursuit of journey to bridge the meaning of those tells us that while these truths may be That while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by his people here on earth.

with certain unalienable rights, and among these happiness. Today we continue a never ending words with the realities of our time. For history self-evident, they’ve never been self-executing.

OBAMA: The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few, or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a republic, a government of, and by, and for the people. Entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed. And for more than 200 years we have. Through blood drawn by lash, and blood drawn by sword, we noted that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half slave, and half free. OBAMA: We made ourselves anew, and vowed to move forward together. Together we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to speed travel and commerce, schools and colleges to train our workers. Together we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play. Together we resolve that a great nation must care for the vulnerable and protect its people from life’s worst hazards and misfortune. Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all societies ills can be cured through government alone. Our celebration of initiative and enterprise, our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility, these are constants in our character.

"Rising From The Ashes"

I like this article because its something i would never like to experience. Hearing about people's reaction to this experience is sad, something no one should go through. Losing your home, is like losing a family member. Memories they had in that home or memories of their childhood in that home, Burnt down in matter of minutes is sad. But not in a cases someone's home is burnt down in a wild fire. Which is something to learn from, anything can happen so enjoy life to the fullest and love you'r family.Â

Career Fair! On friday we had professional's come talk to us bout their careers! It was really exciting learning about careers i want to do in the future!.

Also a professor that teaches graphic design at West Valley College came and talk to us! It was fun learning about it i love working with computers and images!

How we Can Use Cell Phones to Teach/Learn! How can we use cell phones to teach & learn effectively? We use our cell phones for many things. We use them to contact with people search up current events and for entertainment. But we can use them to teach? and learn! One way we can use our cell phones to learn is looking up a term for its definition. Also we can use it as a calculator! for math if we need help finding a solution. There are several ways we can use them. A example we use our cellphones in class is we take pictures of what we are talking about and post them up on a site and use them to explain whats going on! Also we can use them as maps to locate a certain city! or state. Cell phones are great tools, we can use them to teach and learn not just to text message people or for fun.

Where’s My Diploma At Already ? Kevin Cardenas, 2013 Article 8 The Willow Glen High School seniors are excited for graduation and the prospect of finally moving on and moving up to the “real world.” We are anxious to receive our diplomas and to move on with life as working class citizens. It has been four years and some of us have wanted to drop out, or quit, but we did not. We have made it this far and we are ready to make our friends and families proud. Our hearts and souls ache to finally walk the stage with our fellow graduates. The effort we gave at school will now pay off, and we will walk across the stage heads held high. For some, graduation is especially important as they are the first in their families to earn this degree. It will be a day of proud moments and joy for all who participate. So we have to ask, “where our diploma at?”! Advice for the rest of the students who return a year older next year: keep your heads up, school is almost over.

Glenn Gomez by: Kevin Cardenas Article 4

Glenn Gomez is a junior at Willow Glen High School, He attended John Muir Middle School.Glenn shows a lot of his pride for Willow Glen because he represents the school by playing soccer. He played Varsity soccer since freshman year. He wears the captain band and takes responsibility for everything. Glenn has very good grades he is a 4.0 student, he is never late to any of his classes. Glenn Gomez is one of the most

reverent students at Willow Glen High School that has a lot of ram pride. Glenn has always been a good student, since middle school. What Glenn likes the most from this school is the environment, how he can ask any teacher anything and they wouldn’t mind answering. He also appreciates the teachers helping him on anything he need’s help with. He is second generation at Willow Glen High School his older brother attended Willow Glen and his younger brother will soon be a Freshman at Willow Glen. Willow Glen has been a good thing for him says Glenn. He says it has been a good thing in his life and a huge change because he has always been a quiet type of person and Willow Glen has made Glenn a better person and more outgoing and also a lot more successful by taking responsibility in all his work He wears the colors of Willow Glen everyday he gets up to go to school he says good morning to everyone with a huge smile in his face. I consider Glenn to be a student with a lot of pride, when I asked him if he thought he had a lot of pride he said he didn’t know, If you were to know Glenn you would know he actually does have a lot of pride in him. He never complains about anything going on in the school. One way he shows his pride is by being early to his zero period everyday and another way is by running and yelling supporting his teammates all the time in his soccer games for Willow Glen High School. Knowing Glenn is very honorable. He is highly respectful and very nice. Glenn also likes to be around people, he likes talking and meeting new people. Glenn represents Willow Glen he backs up Willow Glen. When people ask him that Willow Glen High School is nothing but a bunch of crazy kids destroying houses. He says that they are really wrong. Students at Willow Glen High School are nice. They don’t do bad things they are

very respectful. Also he is always saying how he feels safe at Willow Glen High School its like his home he can do things without thinking that something bad is really going to happen. He explains it as his second home. Glenn is always trying to improve in his daily life he try’s to help others in any way he is a good person to talk to he won’t judge you by your looks or anything like that. For example, one day Glenn said that his brother was making fun of some homeless person on Lincoln Ave and Glenn said to his brother that the homeless person is somebody son, and that he shouldn’t be making fun of him. That’s why I think he is someone that represent Willow Glen in a good way and shows his colors and pride in many ways. Glenn loves to play soccer. Its his main hobby of all, he has been playing soccer since a very young age. His entire family plays soccer, his father has been playing since a young age as well as his uncles. Also his brothers have been playing and still play soccer. Glenn is currently the captain for the boy’s varsity soccer team. He never played JV so we all call him freshman because as a freshman he made varsity. His motto for the Willow Glen High School Boy’s Soccer is “we are all a family” he explains how they are all a family. He says that Willow Glen High School is his family he will do whatever it takes to protect his family he doesn’t let anyone say anything disrespectful about the team.. Many people don’t know him as well. They know him as a person that doesn’t speak as much. He says that actions speak louder than words so he doesn’t like to talk much and say how he showed people he is a very good soccer player and can make the next level. He just does things he makes it happen. One of his other favorite things to this is listen to music he likes electronic

type of genre. He likes going to concerts and have a good time. his favorite artist is Swedish House Mafia, Benny Benassi, and etc. He says music motivates him to do things. you see him ever yday with his headphones on before a game, during lunch, or before school. In conclusion, Glenn Gomez is a very nice person and I consider him as a Willow Glenn role model and someone who wears the ram spirit everyday by telling his teammates during lunch not to mess around and be respectful to others. He makes sure that all of his team make grades and attend to practice early. This show’s how he cares about Willow Glen High School and show’s his love for his school and family.

Whats Good!!! Kevin Cardenas2013 Aticle 7

Its finals week! Many students are worried and they are working their butts off to pass those long and obnoxious finals! I was also! Specially being a senior and trying to get everything turned in can be very difficult. I asked several questions to students at Willow Glen how they felt about finals week? and their thoughts on finals week?! Kilian Kistenbroker : “ Finals are the only thing to bring my grades down” He also said! “ Finals, i don’t hate them. They are just something that i don’t like to do, they bring my grades down and also they stress me out”. Luis De La Cruz : “ The part i dislike about finals is trying to get some studying time in and eventually you don’t study right. Their’s one thing i like about finals and thats the feeling you get after you have finished all of them and knowing you worked hard to pass them” These are just two people that i asked these questions and they had good and bad things about finals. Although we will have to go through things like this, Finals can get in your way but they eventually pay off for the effort you gave.
