Thanksgiving in Mexico.
People in Mexico value gifts and blessings. They thank the good Lord and celebrate life on the everyday basis. They celebrate thanksgiving to thank the gods. People in mexico when celebrating the holiday they are humble and compassionate. The tradition is similar to the american tradition. They decorate their houses. They put their dinner on a long dinner table and say grace before eating. People in Mexico are known for their spicy and colorful. Some Mexican dishes include pumpkin soup and turkey tacos, mango salsa, chilie Cranberry salsa.Thanksgiving is celebrated across various cultures and countries across the world. In Mexico, Thanksgiving is celebrated on a more religious and spiritual note. The Mexican Thanksgiving Day celebrations include a grand feast that is shared among all the guests. It is safe to say that, Mexicans celebrate Thanksgiving daily, as they thank God for everything around them, every single day of their lives.
Generally, the ‘hero’ of the Mexican Thanksgiving feast is the stuffed pork instead of the traditional stuffed turkey. However, several turkey dishes like turkey tortillas and turkey tamales are also prepared along with the other dishes.
The History of Thanksgiving
The first American Thanksgiving was celebrated in 1621, to commemorate the harvest reaped by the Plymouth Colony after a harsh winter. In that year Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of thanksgiving. The colonists celebrated it as a traditional English harvest feast, to which they invited the local Wampanoag Indians.The First Thanksgiving
By the mid–1800s, many states observed a Thanksgiving holiday. Meanwhile, the poet and editor Sarah J. Hale had begun lobbying for a national Thanksgiving holiday. During the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln, looking for ways to unite the nation, discussed the subject with Hale. In 1863 he gave his Thanksgiving Proclamation, declaring the last Thursday in November a day of thanksgiving.
In 1939, 1940, and 1941 Franklin D. Roosevelt, seeking to lengthen the Christmas shopping season, proclaimed Thanksgiving the third Thursday in November. Controversy followed, and Congress passed a joint resolution in 1941 decreeing that Thanksgiving should fall on the fourth Thursday of November, where it remains.

Blog response to Sugata Mitra
The man name is Sugata Mitra. He is a scientist. Sugata is a professor of Educational Technology at the school of Education. He is known for his “hole in the Wall” project. He was the winner of the TED prize. Mitra was described as the renaissance man by the University of London. The Hole in the Wall came about from nineteen-ninety nine to two thousand and one Mr. Mitra took a computer and placed in a Kiosk in a wall in a slum in Dheli the children were allowed to you it freely. The project proved that children could be taught by computers, he termed it as Minimally Invasive Education. It has been used in new places, there are more than twenty three Kiosks in rural India. It carried on in Cambodia in two thousand and four. I think what he has created gave kids the opportunity to use a computer and have a education. The hole in the wall experiment has impacted pop culture. A man named Vikas Swarup read upon Mitra’s experiment and decided to write his novel. Vikas’s novel later became a movie called Slumdog Millionaire. All the kids who uses those computers are deep thinkers now. When the session is over with the children still Google further. Two students who wanted to be football players watched eight TED Talks and now wanted to be a Leonardo Devinci.
I think Sugata Mitra technique was very creative and was and still is vey innovating. Education can transform somebody’s life. The students in India were making zeros and now there grades has improved. Minimally Invasive education is a method that uses learning environment to generates levels of motivation to induce learning in the groups of children or no intervention by a teacher. The process also uses the children’s curiosity and enables an environment with the learning station so the children can learn on their own. They pick up problem solving skills plus they can share their knowledge in the process in a highly natural environment with a group. The Learning Station can engage the children in their own interests. It also focuses on the teacher’s classroom. This whole process is amazing. Sugata Mitra has a big heart to help kids in India. The schools in India are provided by public sector and private sector. Sugata Mitra has achieved many awards like TED award and that was in Two Thousand and thirteen. He won 1 million dollar prize to build his school in the cloud. Mitra invited the world to embrace setting up self organized learning environments (SOLEs) and helping him to create a Learning lab in India. He said to him winning that TED award it was a great symbols of recognition. He did not know anything about Self directed until nineteen ninety nine. I say Self orignized Learning Enviroments or Sole was a positive thing. The Hole in the wall is a good project to.
This class has been interesting learning about the digital world. I already learn so much. I have learn about the rhetorical appeals such as Logos which is logic. Another is Pathos ,Pathos is emotion. The last one is Ethos ,Ethos is ethics and the beliefs of someone.
I also learned about PSA Announcements which is Public Service Annoucements. The class had to break up in groups and create a one minute video. It was fun. We also watched a video on Terms and Conditions. It was talking about the private policy and how it isn’t what it is what its cracked up to be,the government could share your information. The FBI can spy on your conversations ,emails and everything.
Intimacy is closeness to something or somebody. So in this since a person can have intimacy with there phone because they are emotionally attached to their phones.For some reason she is saying that there is a disconection when some one is on their phones,that is possible because for example if you where setting at the dinner table to have a conversation with the family and your mother is talking and ask you a question and you are n instagram looking at selfies,on twitter sending tweets and texting multitasking and didnt hear a single a word your mother just said so now she is mad at you.
I guest being on your phone can distort the intimacy between you and that person.Technology is great because it is easier to use. Plus you can connect with anybody around the world or if you are a timid person you can keep your friend circle short.
If you have family that is in the miltary ,they have something called Skype.Skype is basically communication from a computer screen face to face. It is free ,upgrade you have to pay for. Another is named Ovoo, that is easy to use too. All you have to have is a email and password, you make up a username if you are private and donot want people to know your real name. It can be used by grandparents and seniors who donot know how to text or does not have a phone.
Today age is so fast pace because everybody is tweeting or on IG taking pictures for other people to see. Now a days you see I phones Smartphones or tablets.
Flip phones have gone out of style. Touchscreens arew the new popular trend. Everybody knows about everybody. They post everything on facebook to update their status. Personally i think you have to stay low key into digital society.
The Three wolf shirt is a graphic tee that has tree wolves and a bright moon on the front of it. Plain and simple! Its a nice shirt. I would rock it if they had in it in some other colors!
This shirt looks like it would be worn by boy because it is green and black and it has wolves. Wolves symbolizes pride and strength.
It seems like a cool shirt to wear . Im pretty sure who ever created this shirt probably likes wolves dark stuff and punk rock. The Three Wolves could be an icon for a band.
The Three wolf moon shirt is a rad shirt overall.
