I have created this work to show how beautiful a simple drawing can be with a little texture and shading added to it. I made a simple island with water and trees because that was something I knew how to draw so I just perfected it. I think my work communicates that you can see a lot of beauty in color. I used different colors to make certain parts of the drawing pop out like the tree. My current work relates to my previous because all my work has a lot of color in it that represents my colorful personality. My work is like contemporary art because many artists such as Claude Lorrain who specializes in making paintings similar to mine. First, I thought of a drawing to draw, then I drew it, then I colored. It was very simple. My work reflects the world we live in by painting a picture of serene calmness of an island. People want to relax and go to an island similar to mine. I learned how to make different textures by using different shading and how hard I pressed my pencil by making it darker or lighter.

“The higher the cases of malaria are in a country, the lower the life expectancy rate is.”
Malaria is an old time virus/disease that has been around for many many decades. It mainly comes from mosquitoes. It is derived from the Italian word for “bad air”. It was originally thought swamp fumes in Rome were the cause of malaria. They thought this was true because there were regular occurrence there of outbreaks. What malaria really is, is a life-threatening blood disease caused by parasites transmitted to humans through the bite of the Anopheles mosquito. Once an infected mosquito bites a human and transmits the parasites, those parasites multiply in the host's liver before infecting and destroying red blood cells. (Medical News Today. MediLexicon International, n.d. Web. 23 Jan. 2017.)
The malaria virus has killed many people all over the world. Worldwide, there were an estimated 198 million cases of malaria in 2013 and 584,000 death. Malaria incidence rates are estimated to have fallen by 30% globally between 2000 and 2013 while estimated mortality rates fell by 47%. The cause of this decrease is because vaccinations came into play. A vaccination is a product that produces immunity from a disease and can be administered through needle injections, by mouth, or by aerosol. Vaccinations are very helpful for many different types and kinds of diseases. During the 20th century, malaria was eradicated from many temperate areas, including the whole of the EU. As a result, the disease is now essentially limited to tropical countries. With global climate change, the potential for the reappearance of malaria in countries where it was previously eradicated exists but is relatively small. Anopheles mosquitoes are in fact still present in those areas, including in Europe. ("Malaria." Malaria. N.p., n.d. Web. 23 Jan. 2017.)
The number of cases of malaria affects life expectancy in a couple countries before 2006. This is due to the number of people dying from this nasty disease. The number of deaths can cause life expectancy to decrease because not enough people are surviving.

In this interview, Michael Kalman remembers his life as a young adult back in the 1950s-1960’. He speaks about how he was affected by the racial conflicts during that time period. He talks about his wife and how she was racial affected by others. He speaks about the struggles of the late 1900’s because of inequality.
Housing Segregation is the practice of denying African American or other minority groups equal access to housing through the process of misinformation, denial of reality and financing services, and racial steering. Roughly 40 percent of black students attend schools that are more than 90 percent minority, up from 34 percent 20 years ago. The existence of isolated and racially segregated housing has preserved racial mistrust, furthering ignorant stereotypes that inhibit our society from attaining true racial equality.
