Can we Auto-correct Humanity? - Writing -

Technology nowadays is used by many people. It has become an essential part of everyday life. Whether for business or pleasure, people cannot seem to go without it. While some technology devices are used for most of our needs, it is to many more so a want, a luxury to have. Technology has a great effect in our lives both positive and negatively.I would like to stress on the negative points of technology.

The use of social media can make our social skills lack.We tend to lose ability to read body language and social cues in other people.This will make us depend on technology to help us gain friends by chatting online instead of socializing face to face.

Constantly looking down at a device/screen can cause health problems like eyestrain and neck problems. Eventually during time your neck  can lose its natural curve.Eye strain can also leave you in pain and can cause a lot of headaches.

Some of the negative effects of technology can be linked to the effect it has on sleeping habits.At night we could be so drawn to our devices we won’t even know when to go sleep.Our brain is showing to much interest in what were watching so our brain won’t show any effects of tiredness,If the brain feels this way you won’t be able to sleep for a long time.Also the light of the screen can affect the release of melatonin,a sleeping chemical.

The more time people spend with their devices the more obsessed they would be.They won't have any exercise time to be fit and would become fat and unhealthy.This would lead to depression and stress.Sometimes spending too much time with technology can also remove the family time you’ll get.

Some people would take technology as an advantage to bully other people online.People would want to do this because it's easier for them instead of saying it in front of their faces as a person.A lot of this cyber bullying can encourage kids to proceed with suicide.

Technology has affected humanity in a lot of ways.There is more violence and there is more damage within our body being caused.Do we need to take a picture of our food,Why can't we just eat it? Do we need technology to find friends,Can't we just make friends face to face?

Bastion Point Summary - Reading -

For our Create Activity for Ready we had to make a summary of Bastion Point,a book we read about this week.Here is my Summary about Bastion PointπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Bastion Point - Reading -

Learning Intention : We are learning to think deeply about what we read.

In our reading group we learnt a few pointers about the Land Wars.Since our topic was the land wars for reading we got a chance to read a book called Bastion Point.

What is Bastion Point?
Basion Point is a land that the iwi gave to the government to use.

Why did the British and Maori have different ideas about who owned the land?
The british wanted to sell the land to get money but the Maori gave the land to the British so they could use it not sell it.

Why did Ngati Whatua let the government use the land at Bastion Point?
So they could build cities and protect New Zealand’s Borders.But they actually used the land for army defence.

Who burnt down the marae at Bastion Point?
The government burned down the land to prepare for Queen Elizabeth’s Visit.

What does the word profit mean?
It means how much money people gain or how much money they have to spend.  

Do you think the police or the protestors were doing the right thing?
 I don't think they did the right thing Why ? Because they arrested the wrong people.I also think they didn’t need to destroy the houses and buildings which use to be there.

What is your opinion about this issue?
I think if the british was fair and used the land temporarily it would be okay.But the british sold land which was not fully owned by them.
