The hurricanes and cyclones in Gulf and Mexico

Not long ago, the newspapers were filled with the frontage  of climate change that has caused larger and ever deadlier hurricanes and cyclones . The areas which are especially endangered  lies around Gulf and Mexico. With the recent Hurricane Florence and the Hurricane in Puerto Rico last year.

However it is questionable and concerning, how the U.S government has the authority and power to manipulate the death tolls to seem less dramatic. In addition  they try their best to hide the numbers altogether. For example, if they reports that the death toll is around hundreds when it actually was a thousand of people who had passed away. Another example would be if the death toll was 24 they could say that the Hurricane had claimed a few lives.

Obviously,  the Emergency Services are not fit to handle these hurricanes. They do not managed to help everyone who needs it. Take for example the hurricane in Puerto Rico last year where the death toll was 2 975,but then afterwards the Puerto Rican government originally claimed the death toll was 64.

The president of the United States Donald. J. Trump responded to this highly critical situation by saying that the U.S Emergency Services did a “fantastic” job, handling the hurricane, despite the fact that nearly 3000 died.  Furthermore, he also claimed that they handled this much better in comparison of the hurricane Katrina in 2005. Nonetheless the hurricane in Katrina only had a death toll of 1,200.

Firstly, it is clear that they are trying to cover up their mistakes and limitations of the emergency services by rephrasing or fiddle with numbers of death toll . Secondly they attempt to hid the truth which is that the Emergency Services are unable to help those who need their assistance. Thirdly, the reasoning behind the Emergency  Services failures, is that the Senate rather spend money on their military than the Emergency Services when they clearly needs it in these kind of situations.

As a result this demonstrate how unprepared the Emergency Services is, if a truly massive hurricane hits and that maybe the government should probably revalue the incomes in their military and instead demand in more people in the Emergency Service so they could save more people who has been influenced by the hurricane in Gulf and Mexico

Advice to fellow students

A study guied

Firstly, the art of studying involves repetition which is unversial for all learning. The prosses of learning does not matter of the amount of time we spend on the subject or information that we are supposed to gain.

The most popular and productive study techniques are the ones where we repeat the same information over a longer period of time and then go slowly into more depht of the content.

First impression of «The Absolutely True Diary of a Part – Time Indian»

My first impression of this novel written by Ellen Forney, was that the narrorator had a lot of personality which translated into the writhing style of this book. The language of this book is told by «me» perspective which let’s us get to know the hiluarios narrator better, Arnold Spirit. Arnold Spirit is the main characther and the story surronds arounds his life as an Native American in the rez. The sentence are easy to read and is definetly customized for the younger adults.

The first chapters introuduced Arnold Spirit as an shy, sensitive, kind and meature young teenager who dreams about a better future or having a greater purpose in life.  However, the main character tells us about how he always been an outcast from the Sporkane Indian tribe because of his brain grease and appereance.  In addtion Arnold has speech impendents. The story continue with him explainening his biggest issuse being stuck in the poverty  which is the lack of oppurtinties. One day he wishes that he could become an artist in the future.

So far I read, I think the story was very intresting and fascinating. It has great descriptions  which makes the content more intreging to read. In addtion the author has written some amazing characters who has a lot depth into them.  The first chapters provides the readers with laughter and curiosity.




My book choice of English literature

My book choice

In the English class each of students is suppose to read English literature  , and we have options  between «About a boy» by Nick Hornby  and » The Absloute Diary of a Part-Time Indian»by  Sherman Alexie. About the boy is an autobiography which is based on Nick Horneby ‘s experience grown up as an Indeginous American.  However,the «The Abslute True Diary  of a part-time time» tells the story of a 14-year-old Native American teenager.

I decided to read » The Absolutely true Diary of a part-time Indian» because of its captured heading and a very intriguing conepct of a Native American teenager. My expectiaions for this is book is that the content will focus on the struggles being a part-timer Indian in the soceity and hopefully give me a new point of view or another persepctive of Native Americans.
