The Cold War

The last few weeks ,me and my classmates have been studying the Cold War. The Cold War was a battle of political reasoning and basic ideals. The Soviet Union supported the spread of Communism, while the United States and its allies defended the people's supposed right to a deceptively civilized form of government.

Change in Ideals

I have decided to change how I organize my digital portfolio. Instead of reflecting on what I've learned, I am going to use this blog to organize all assignments that I complete in Class.

World War 2

This last couple of weeks my classmates and I have been learning about World War 2. World War 2 was a war in Europe between the Allied Powers (U.S., Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union) against the Axis Powers (Italy, Germany, and Japan). The war would last from 1939 to 1945.

Nazi Germany was ruled by a Dictator named Adolf Hitler. At the start of the war, he quickly invaded Poland and began to slaughter Jews by the thousands in what is known as the Holocaust. His forces were pushed back into Germany after the famous D - Day invasion, which led to the Allied reconquest of Western Europe. Hitler commited suicide in his bunker when the rest of his forces surrendered.

Italy was ruled by a Dictator named Mussolini. He was the first to fall to axis forces and was hung in a town square by fishhooks and beat to death by local citizens.

Japan was the must stubborn force in the War. They joined after Pearl Harbor, where Japanese fighter pilots bombed a series of American Naval Ships, killing thousands. They finally surrendered after the drop of the first two atomic bombs, which leveled two entire cities.

World War One

The first social studies unit in quarter 3 is World War One. There are a few different things building tension in Europe before France Ferdinand was shot and killed, sparking immediate conflict between the two major alliances.

M: Militarism - Each country was building up a large army in order to protect themselves from invasion
A: Alliances - Each country made sure they had a few powerful friends to protect them
I: Imperialism - Each country was fighting over colonies, and there right to rule
N: Nationalism - The people of every country believed in it, so when there leaders were killed, conflict strikes.

The two major alliances were Triple Alliance, and the Triple Entente. The Triple Alliances consisted of Germany, Italy, and Austro-Hungary, while the Triple Entente consisted of France, Great Britain, and Russia.

When France Ferdinand of Austro-Hungary was assassinated, it declared war on Serbia, the home of the killer. This quickly brought Germany into the fight, as it was aligned with Austro-Hungary. Russia, feeling bad for Serbia, quickly declared war on Germany and it's ally, involving France and Britain in the war. Italy and The U.S. declared Neutrality.

The alliances were quickly shaken up though, when a German U-boat sunk an Passenger boat containing 128 Americans, and Germany promised Mexico U.S. territory if they declared war on The States. America Declared War on Germany, and after political issues, Italy declared war on Austro-Hungary. Germany immediately gained allies in The Ottoman Empire and Bulgaria.

Deadly Trench Warfare led to many casualties , including millions on the Russian Fronts. Russia withdrew from the War and signed an Armistice with Germany after inside civil war. The war finally ended when German leaders realized, that the Allies had more resources then they did, and they would give in before the rest of Europe. Germany signed the Treaty of Versailles, forcing them to accept extremely high Reparations, and acknowledge their part in starting the War. This treaty would eventually lead to World War Two.

A newly found hobby of mine is basic graphic design. I draw shapes on google drawings, then link them all together to make one big product. I have done vector portraits of people, objects, and logos.

Leaving things on Earth can be classified into 5 main categories. Animals, Plants, Bacteria, Fungi, and Protists. Most people know what the first four categories are, but what are protist?

Protist are sort of the miscellaneous category of creatures. They go where nothing else fits. Fungi, Animals, and Plants are all Multicellular. Bacteria, are Unicellular, and Prokaryotic, meaning they have no nucleus. Protist are Unicellular organisms that have a Nucleus, and are classified mainly by how they move. Below are a few examples of Protists and how they move:

Euglena - Whip like tail called a Flagellum

Paramecium - small hairs called cila

Amoeba - Gel like Pseudopods that help it crawl around.

Volvox - Whip like tails called Flagella
