Our plants were growing pretty well but we suddenly forget to attend to it and the plants dried up. It shows that plants won't survive in a dry environments. Genetics gives us the abilities and certain traits to survive. For example, a person may be able to handle extreme pressure and not break, while another breaks easily and dies because of it.
The environment also affects the phenotype of an organisms, as it was stated by BBC "Survival of the fittest - those offspring whose phenotypes are better adapted to the environment have a better chance of survival and therefore a greater chance of passing on their genes to the next generation." this means that the environment can be advantageous to an individual with a certain genetic while the ones who have genes that are disadvantageous are eliminated.
An indicator of how an organism will look is as stated by Britanica "Different environments can influence the development of inherited traits (as size, for example, is affected by available food supply) and alter expression by similar genotypes" this factor will affect who will survive, as I've stated before. Those who have advantageous genes will be more likely to survive.
Something that stood out to me in this course is the dissection of frogs. It was quite nasty but at the same time educational. It taught me that frogs have complex organs that keeps them alive. I felt that I learned a lot from that experience. It also taught me that I should research and learn a lot more about my body and how it works.
Reflection and thoughts about the theory of evolution
The theory of evolution is an interesting thought. Selective pressure was an interesting concept and I saw it going in motion. An example are the rock pocket mouse, if the terrain is darker that means the dark furred mouse are going to be more likely to survive since they were blending in with their environment, but if the lighter furred mouse came into dark terrains they will be preyed upon by predators. The environment is the selective pressure in this example because it either increases or decreases the chance of their survival. I think that some of these systems shows how certain organisms have a higher chance of survival. I think it is quite interesting to learn about this.
I think that evolution is still an invalid theory because the evidence here only mostly talks about the similarities between organisms and how their genes are similar, which is in my opinion quite repetitive. I think that we right now we only have this theory to explain our existence because we don’t see anything else being true. To me personally, science is all probable facts that have been tested and observed which is where evidence is gained. I do believe in things such as selective pressure and the different types of phenotypes. What I see as a flaw in this theory is the fact that a bacteria has the capacity to turn into a human being. There’s no evidence of anything such as that recorded in history. If there is evidence of monkeys turning into humans through the span of a million years and we have that record recorded somewhere on an ancient cave or stone or some old board of some sort, then I’ll reconsider the theory of evolution being true.

Better to be independent, than dependent.
Being independent gives you more freedom and control over yourself and your future conditions, instead of being dependent, when you depend on someone you become too hopeful, for example you work with a group of friends and you’re the one pulling the weight while everyone else slacking off, that feeling can be frustrating that’s why being independent is better, instead of hopping someone else will do it, you are taking control over the actions and outcomes.
The hole in the wall shows the frustration of the person, the messy bed shows how indifferent the guy is about everything that surrounds him, the pillow on the floor shows how comfortable he is, and the table & paper shows the work that he has done and how simple he wants to live life.
My street art shows the good and evil, light and darkness of people.
My inspiration comes from people’s moral compass and actions, though I was just looking around for ideas and stumbled upon this.
I picked that certain location because it shows my work and what I have accomplished recently and what I’ve worked for, and the experiences that I have so far and that’s coming soon in the future.
This wasn’t really the thing that changed my perspective of art, it was the lesson in class, and what I’ve learned, also the things that I learned online.As I travel around the city I see some art, but not all of them are meaningful art. Though I’m sure it’s there for a reason.
Online I appear as a whole different person, I’m very quiet, and pretty much the same as how I act in public. When people look at me based on my appearance they would think I’m a delinquent or a trouble maker. When posting I think about what I say and I make sure people understand what I post or say and make sure that they don’t misunderstood, and that nobody would be offended. The pros is that you can control what you post and the cons is that whatever you post may spread like a wildfire depending on what you say. Lack of control, permanence and immediacy impacted our lives because people will look at what you post, and you can’t control what you post because people can just keep sharing passing it on from person to person, and permanence is affecting our lives (not just online, also our personal live) because people just look at that and assume you are this and this because you post this and this. My thoughts on a social media background checks by potential employers, well I’m against that because it’s a breach of privacy, and people judge quickly on what the person is like when they see a certain post, but I can’t complain because it’s maybe a job that I want. Free speech is basically the right to say whatever you want, but this power have some limits, things like profanity, fight words, and words that is used to degrade someone is not protected by law. An internet troll is someone who enjoys seeing people mad, basically they make someone mad and trying to get their angers out. Well we can stop trolling by making a website that have programs that type some random discussion and the program can be programmed to respond to what the trolls is saying so they wouldn’t bother an actual person. Pros of posting anonymously is that no one would know that you are the poster if you wanna post without anyone knowing who you are, and the con is that it’s difficult to identify the person who post certain posts.
1. Think before posting.
2. Comment without offending or use words to degrade.3. Ignore a troll.
