2-3 main ideas

1. Chinese kids are being selfish due to no religion or ethics to stand by.

2. The indian president is using religion to help support his claims.

3. The chinese goverment's one child policy.

Most intresting idea

That china's decision to only let people in the city have one child backlashed because it made a selfish generation of childeren.

3. what I disagree on

The president of India using religon to help support his claims since he should not be doing that because it might get people from other religions in India or Pakistan [musliums] mad about that.

2-3 Main Ideas

1. Kids are dropping out of school for a job since they belive it will benefit the family instead of getting a education thats why primary school to elementary school enrollements are drasticly dropped.

2. The goverment is not focusing on kids getting education instead they are worried about their military and want to defend the country so they are not funding the schools but instead the army.

Most intresting Idea

Kids dropping out of school for a job.

3. what do i disagree on

If schools are private or public? i disagree your asking because if it were private the kids would not drop out of school for a job since their family wants them to have a better education than a public school so that makes me think that i disagree on this idea since i find it being a bit self explanitory if you read the text.

How did i contribute to the Seminar?

i belive i contributed to get a grade of 3.25

CWW Santander

1. I expect to learn about Santander and its unique traits not found anywhere else in Colombia. Also to see those unique traits in the enviorment of Santander like it happened in Zona Cafetera last year in the CWW trip. In learning i would like to learn about its foods unique to that area also alot other things, I also would exepct to learn about historical landmarks and famous places like the last trip and also biodiversity if we go hiking, like trees,plants and animals.

2. For physical activity i expect to hike atleast once and myabe twice also do long walks and not use the bus all around, do fun activitys like rafting and thing alike, i would also expect physical activity from making tents and camping.

3. For team building i expect to make tents in a group, raft in a river and do it successfully without fails or miscomunications for camaradire i expect to be a little more open with your group or myabe somone in your room that you didn't pick but is in it and make good friend out of this trip.

I live on a mountain with woods behind the apartment buildings and there is a road going uphill with a dead end at the other side with a road going to the side there is a club called (Club Metropolitan) its also cold and windy.

My house is located in the area called rosales in Bogota more exact I live in a dead end so there is only one way in and one way out and a little bit lower down their is a small police station call a CAI  the school buses go next to the one way in and one way out place in some of the rutas so you can follow them and you will find it.

Colombia has language in common with all countries in south america but brazil also that we dont all have seasons, catholicism is the dominant religion in all south america.

Colombia got strongly influenced by the spanish culture since we where spanish descendants.

They have adapted to cold or warmth depending where you live in colombia.

I like  that you can't loose your blog that the font is clear you can save everything easy
Without trouble. I dislike that you can loose Internet access and possibly loose your work
Sometimes you can loose the file and it can be frustrating to find it. It can improve by having a section of files you have saved but not published it can also improve by making it more easy put an HTML.
