Obama’s far-well was basically him saying how he thinks that we we’re all good citizens of America. One of the things that he made clear we’re how he doesn’t see why he was given the opportunity to serve as the president for 8 years but how the democrat Hillary didn’t get the votes.And he says that he can’t do anything but be a average citizen of America. Obama’s speech was not his best speech but he did get a lot of things across to people and he showed Donald Trump a lot of things that he needs to do.Obama’s legacy was not the best and he some good things such as his health care was a huge success.

The provisons of the law are restrooms for the people who don’t go by their biological sex.The democratic party is against the bill and thinks it is a waste of money. The freedom for all Americans is being defeated if thats the case.The bill affects us in ways like result in an economic loss in Texas ranging from $964 million to $8.5 billion, including the loss of up to 185,000 jobs.I think the changes should be made there hasn’t been any problems with others using the bathroom that they are comfortable using.

 

My Holiday Break

Now that it is a new year i don’t really have a new years resolution like others i just feel thatr 2017 will be another quick year like last year was and this year i will be really busy so i feel like i would’nt be able to focus on one goal. One thing i am looking foward to is moving into my first brand new house, this will be the first house that my family and i move into a house that hasn’t been lived in by another owner so i’m really excited about that and about going to a -new school and getting to go to a school where i know more people. The only goals i have for this semester in this class is to get my work finished ahead of time and to have no imcomplete assignments. One assignment i think we should do is to make our own page of a yearbook spread to see what it feels like.

Best Of 2016

The best song of 2016 was “Black Beatles” because the song was introduced by the mannequin challenge which is was a huge thing over social media so when people watched the challenges on social media they would want to see what the music was which made the song very popular.

Finding Dory was the best movie of 2016 this was all because of Finding Nemo  since that was such a good movie for both children and adults so ever since that debut when people hear that there was this movie coming out they got really excited and went to see the movie which wasn’t a disappointment.

The top news story in 2016 to me was the shooting that happened in Baton,LA because at this times i was with my cousin at a tournament and because they won the top in their bracket they were headed to a tournament in Louisiana so the news was a shocker to me and a lot of others around the world.

Simone Biles was the most important person in 2016 in my opinion because she made me realize that anyone could do anything they wanted, you just have to have courage in yourself and don’t let others talk you out of doing something you love and have a desire for and she not only made me realize this but she had a huge impact on others.

In 2016 the Cubs finally won the world series after 108 years of waiting this was one of the biggest sport events of the year for me and many others and i remember talking to a good friend that has been living in chicago for 10 years now and he was so excited for them to win and that just made me feel excited for them and their big fans.

 

Final for Photojournalism

THE WOLPACK FOOTBALL TEAM


This photo essay is over my younger brothers football team. The Wolpack Football Team was only established 2 years ago, the first season didn’t go as welll none of the teams took any wins out of there 16 game schedule. This then made the head coach think about starting a conditioning camp over the summer and start practicing a little bit earlier than last year and so the coaches get to know more about their teams. This year went a lot more better than last year and by doing this photo assignment this should give you the idea of how far the boys have came.

dsc_0427 This photo is of one of the five touchdowns that the rookie team had against the opposing team.

Little League Kickoff- The Wolfpack Rookie football team is leading the league with a 3-0 record the boys have been practicing off season and they have even got some new football equipment see.”These boys mean a lot to me and they have shown that they have worked for these things which is what football is all about” says the head coach.

DISCIPLINE- The head coach of the Wolfpack football team says “discipline is the name of the game.” when he said this statement I was speechless and skipped over to another question but i somehow went back to that question and asked “what happened in this photo” he answered that the player decided to run his own play, which caused a lot of confusion to the team and many others so i had to give him a break and think about what he did and how that was selfish.

When preparing for this photo the parent of the player tackling the opposing team says “ that’s my boy!” she goes on and explains how much he has improved over the 2 years and that this football team has been the reason why, this shows how the team has improved and that they are only getting better.

“Were a team says the head coach no matter what happens,after this game we will still be a team and thats the end of the story.” Coach Perkins tells the rookie boys this because they are going against there rival and he feels as if the boys are becoing scared and some say they might lose this game (which they didn”t) maybe because of this talk that the coach had with the boys. “The parents sometimes say I talk way more than I coach, but football also involves knowledge and when playing you have to use your brain.” says Coach Perkins

 “As cheerleaders the girls should cheer the boys on no matter what.” says the head coach of the cheeleaders. The coach explains that she likes to watch little league football but she loves to see the girls cheer them on because some of the girls have brothers out there and even though they may not get along as well at home when the girl is she cheering she may not realisze that she is cheering for her brother but she is and that shows that they have some love for each other. The funny thing was when the game was over i overheard one of the football boys tell his sister “thank you for cheering for the team sis.”

This photo is probaly a typical football picture for you but there is so much more. The senior in this photo has been playing for a year and he is known as the teams “weakest link” but in this photo the “weakest link” is about to tackle the winning touchdown, which causes the wolfpack seniors to close their season off with a win.

“Football is a very tough sport” this was said by the player being defended in this photo. When asked why does he think football is a “tough” sport he says because of all of the contact it involves and you can’t be a weak when playing this sport or you won’t be that sucsessful. This photo means a lot to this player beacuse as you see the defensive player has no idea where the football was so when it was passed to (81) he ended get a few yards.


dsc_0461 This specific football player was the reason the Seniors won their last game the boy is shown tackling the quarterback of the other team which in football is one of the best things you can do when being on defense. The coach of the seniors says ” the boys should be awarded when they do things like this” and that probably explains why the senior team went o to Main Event that night and celebrated their win.The boys have been through a lot and they have sacrificed a lot like not playing junior high football for their school because they want to play on this little league football for their last year.


 

 

Assignment-Publication Assignment 3.11

oublicaton-assignment

This is a photo a the Lady Knights B-Team. “This year has been one of the best years for the girls basketball program.” says the head coach Lorie Campbell. This was said because the number of girls that came out this year was big enough to have a Freshman B-Team as well. The Lady Knights started their district games when they went against the Lady Vikings. “The girls did and amazing job and this has been one of the best games so far in the season.” said Coach Myers. This game was a very intense game as both teams gave away many turnovers, the lady knight we’re ahead the whole game and came out with the victory. The photo shows the 5 girls that are on the court and they are all talking about what they need to do better after this time out and the girls gave feedback on what there captain Lia Jones (10) should do better that would make them win the game as which they did meaning the team pulled together and each player played their role.

Assignment-3.3 Write for Environmental Plan

When I get Alicia’s enviormental potrait I want her to feel like she’s comfortable and I don’t want her photo to feel as it was forced she should feel like this is her home which it is and she should feel as she is welcoming you to her home.When shooting this photoshoot I want to make sure that Alicia is standing at an angle of the court so most of the court is visible to the viewers to this photo. I want the picture to be of Alicia smiling and just to be herself.

 

Assignment-3.5 Prt.1 Story

The whistle blows, both girls from each team go up for the jump ball. The Lady Knights don’t get possession of the ball but they rush to get in there defense. Once the ball was out of play Alicia says she remembers taking out the ball and waiting for her teammate to pass it back to her. “Even though there was a lot going through my head like which play should i run, who should i pass the ball to and a lot of other things.”Alicia explains that this one was of her most exciting games as well as her most important game.

At halftime Alicia added that the score was tied with the score of 10-10 and she added that the opposing team has a history of “blowing teams out” meaning they are usually ahead by a lot of points, but this game was different they had been behind the whole game and just had caught up before halftime.

Once the halftime break ended Alicia explains that she had talked to her middle school coach before the game and pointed out something she remembered Alicia struggled with in middle school which was to “always dribble up the middle of the court” so when Alicia got back from the halftime break she had a new mindset and that was to “ take the ball up the center of the court.” Throughout the game Alicia got reminders from many people in the crowd including myself and her parents and on the court like her co-captain Leyla Zamarron who says she had many “attempts of stealing the ball and did good when she was pressured by the other team.”

Even though Alicia didn’t score as many points as usual she made sure she “stayed in control of the ball and of her temper” which are one of the things her teammate thought she could do better but showed improvement.

Alicia was one of the 3 freshmans that stood out to the returning players and coaches and made the Lady Knights JV basketball team, she always shows that she’s dedicated to doing something and she commited to this sport of basketball.”This has been quite a experience for me, and i was first very nerveous about being on the team with older girls,but once it was in the middle of pre-season i got used to playing with the girls and got used to playing on a high school level.”

I’ve watched Alicia grow over the last 3 years from 7th grade basketball and i have seen a huge amount of improvement in her basketball skills and she has more space to continue growing, but this game came close to being Alicia’s best games that she has played in a while, but it wasn’t as good as the Manor game says Leyla Zamarron, the co-captain of the team. Alicia is an outstanding person and is amazing person when you get to know her and this is article should show you how she “stood out as a freshman” to make the JV team,”says one of her teammates.This hardworking,commited,and athletic freshman deserves to be rewarded.
