Jake Ashenfelter Q4 Benchmark
My group and I decided to make a go kart for our capstone. We have two mentos which are Mr. Lawrence and his friend Sal who we work with at downtown SLA. We decided to make a go kart because all of us are going into engineering majors and we are all really interested in cars. Since we didn’t know where to start with building the go kart we started to look on ebay and craigslist for different parts of a go kart that we thought we might need. We bought was a frame and an engine. Sal told us that the most important thing is to create a design for the go kart so that it’s easier to understand all the dimensions and where everything needs to go. We ordered all the other parts that we need for our go kart like the rear axle, the clutch, and brakes. We haven’t finished completely building the go kart but we just finished the final design. We have all the correct dimensions and the parts that we need. Now we have to weld the frame so that it is the size that we want. Then we have to attach all of the parts to the rear axle and then weld that onto the frame and then place the engine on the frame. Once we finish this all we have to do is attach simple things like the steering wheel, pedals and wheels to the go kart and we will be finished.

Anchor 1: Hay mucho viento y está lloviendo afuera, yo mejor tengo cuidado. Ahora con el moda con Nathan Lewis.
Gracias Tyrone. Buenas tardes a todos,Que pum? si tu eres en la modo like myself, make sure that when you’re shopping again you get a pair of the classic Nike cortez,you know those never get out of style,and white socks to go with them,not ankle sock,those never go good together with Cortez’s. You have to get straight or skinny jeans, some will prefer shorts, that’s cool too, but the Jeans will sit on the shoes more. Long line tee’s are getting real common now for males, especially the ones with the zippers at the sides. Females are also liking the sun dresses with sneakers even a crop top and a long skirt can work, I think it is very attractive too, but let’s not go there. If you’re a female and you want your style to be up to date shop at forever21 too, I heard that is the go to place for the females, they have reasonable prices and nice outfits that looks like designer.
By the way Footlocker is having a huge sale today, 50% off of a pair of sneakers over $120. Hollister is also having a huge sale on male and female apparel.
Gracias Tyrone. Buenas tardes a todos, ¿Qué pasa? Si estás interesado en la moda como yo, asegúrese que cuando a ir a comprar un par de clásico Nike cortez. Todos ustedes saben que nunca salen del estilo, y calcetines blanco para ponerse con sus tenis, sin calcetines de tobillo que nunca van bien juntos con Cortez’s.
Tu tienes que conseguir recto de pitillo o vaqueros de pitillo, algunos prefieren pantalones cortos, eso es estupendo también. Pero los pantalones vaqueros se sentarán en los zapatos más. La camisas de largo estilo están en moda auténtico ahora para los hombres, especialmente a los que tienen las cremalleras a los lados. Hembras están también le gustan los vestidos veraniegos con zapatillas, también la camisas corta y una larga falda pueden trabajar juntos. Yo pienso que eso es muy atractivo también, pero no vamos a ir allí..Si eres una hembra y tu quieres tu estila estas hasta fecha compra en la Tienda siempre viene dos también, he oído que es el sitio que las hembras. Que tienen precios razonables y buena ropa que es como diseñador.
A propósito la tienda de foot locker tiene un enorme venta hoy, 50% apagado el precio de un par de zapatillas encima ciento veinte dólar . La tienda de Hollister también tiene un enorme venta en mujer y hembra apparel.
Anchor 1: Gracias Nathan, yo voy a ir a foot locker a consigo Jordánes. Now onto Domenick with some breaking news!

Concepts: Breaking News: Dom
There are two U.S. Navy boats that have been detained by Iran, with ten U.S. sailors on board. It has been reported that Iran will “promptly” return the U.S. crew. The two boats lost communication with the Pentagon on Tuesday, as they traveled between Kuwait and Bahrain. It is not clear as to why the boat was seized, but according to NBC News the boats were there for a training mission when one started to have problems and may have drifted into Iranian territory. A strike group from USS Harry S. tried to help the crew but were stopped when the sailor were captured. Some of this information may be sketchy as this is breaking news, we will keep you updated as we know more.

Charles Ashenfelter was many different things to me even though I only knew him for the first few years of my life. The most important thing was that he was my grandfather. I always called him Pop, I’m not sure why but I just did one day and it stuck. Pop seemed to be an average man that just did the same thing everyday, but he was much more than that. He was a caring man that loved his family and spent all of his time providing for his family. He raised several kids, one of them being my dad who is the most important person in my life and I look up to more than anyone, so obviously he did a good job. However there are some things about Pop that I heard were not amazing. He had to work several jobs in order to provide for all the kids, so that meant he was around the house for them much. My dad's siblings would smoke and drink with their friends in the house and my grandfather didn’t have time to tell them to stop. When my dad was my age he was on the all star team for the city of philadelphia for high school football players, however Pop never went to see any of his games. My dad brings this up many times and tells me how much it hurts him that he didn’t come to any of them. It makes me appreciate that my dad comes to every single game of my life, even when he is sick or hurt. However, I never experienced this side of my grandfather. He was always so nice to me. He came to every baseball and football game I ever had. He took me golfing with him. He took me shopping with him. All I have are good memories of him. I’m thankful for the person that Pop was to me but it also disappoints me the way he was to my dad. Pop was the only person that showed me what it was like to experience death because he is the only person I was close to that passed away. Now, enough for all the ranting and getting off topic. What does my grandfather mean to me? I’m not really sure to be honest. My grandfather was always great to me but I only have so many memories from him. All I can remember him by are the things that people say about him. When I go golfing, I get greeted by everyone there and everyone tells me how great of a man my grandfather was and sometimes we even get to play for free or a discount. I listen to the stories that my dad says about him with him and with me. To me my grandfather is a man that cared a lot about me and cared a lot about his family. He may not have always been the best because he wasn’t always around, but the only reason he wasn't around is because he was working to provide for his family. The main thing that I remember my grandfather from is golfing, He volunteered there for the last couple years of his life. I would go there with him and find missing golf balls, then we would bring them back and try to sell them to the golfers for cheaper. So obviously my grandfather was somebody I loved and only had good memories with. I get upset that I forget about him a lot and don’t remember much about him, but that just makes me cherish the moments that I did have with him.
I decided to do my grandfather for this project because he was one of the only person in my life that passed away. Dia de los Muertos is a day to celebrate the dead and to honor those who have died. My whole life I have been sad and disappointed that my grandfather passed away when I was so young. However, I think it is good that I do this project on him because it is time I stop being sad about his passing and use this time to appreciate him and celebrate him. Instead I get to remember the good memories that I had with him. My sugar skull can reflect this person because of everything I put on it. The main thing I remember him by, as I said before, is golfing. This is where I had my best memories with him and I enjoyed it. I didn’t know how to represent golfing on a small skull like this so I remembered the hat that he always used to wear. Everytime I saw him he wore a hat for the golfing club that he went to so I decided to make that hat and put it on the skull. The other thing that I represented him by was his old white hair. I put this on here because this is another thing that I remembered him by. It was always really funny making fun of his hair because of how ridiculous it looked. The only other thing that I tried to represent him by was his favorite color which is why I painted the skull. I asked a few people what his favorite color was and I never really got a clear answer so I decided to put the three answers that I received onto the skull. Yellow, blue and red. I wish that I could have added a few other things to my skull but I couldn’t fit much else onto the skull. The same reason goes for the mask that I created. In the mask there are several different reasons that I drew what I drew. The first of which being the flowers. I drew the flowers to represents life and how nice my grandfather was. Another thing is the flower at the top. I made this one of the brightest points on the mask because it shows how intelligent my grandfather was since it is where his brain would be. I also put a golf ball in his mouth because I needed to show his love for golf somewhere since that is how I remember him the most.
Dia de los Muertos definitely opened up my mind to celebrating the passing of a loved one. Before learning about this, the time of year that Dia de los Muertos takes place would usually be me just celebrating Halloween. Instead, I took this time do remember some of the people that have passed and enjoy the memories I had with them. I never really thought about my grandfather much before Dia de los Muertos. Now I think that I will want to go visit him and remember all of the good times I had and celebrate.

Hello, my name is Jake Ashenfelter. When I was 7 years old my grandfather passed away. I loved him very much and will never forget him. He was always smiling and made me smile as well. My grandfather was born and lived in Roxborough his whole life. He was a family man and everyone that knew him loved him. My grandfather worked in a factory his entire life. When he was not in a factory he would spend his time golfing. My grandfather was a kind and friendly man overall. He was funny, caring and humble. I will never forget my grandfather because of these reasons. Today I like to remember my grandfather in many different ways. I try to visit his grave because it will help me remember him and enjoy the memories more. I am not sad anymore about my grandfather passing away. Instead I remember everything we did with each other. I remember how much I love him and how much he loves me and I become happy.
For our project we decided to use a junk ball wiffle ball:
When we first started the project we decided immediately that we wanted to do something related to sports because it was something that both of us could relate to. We both play a lot of sports but not a lot of them were in common. The one sport that we had in common was baseball however. So we decided to use a wiffle ball since it is baseball.
What the item means to Cinque:
It reminds me of all the times that I played baseball. In 2012 I won a championship and it brings back the good memories of that. I decided this would be a good idea since me and Jake can both relate to it. It also brings out and shows the athletic side of me.
What the item means to Jake:
This item is a very important part to me. This same ball was the one that I used my whole childhood to play wiffle ball. Also since baseball is the one sport that I really love to play and enjoy. This brings back a lot of memories whether it was playing wiffle ball in the local sandlot or all the years that I played little league. It also brings back memories of the several times that my team won the championship.
