First Lakers Preseason Game, Not So Good

October 7th was the first LA Lakers game against the Golden State Warriors and was a loss. The final score was 85-80. Before the game, Dwight Howard said “I’m on track (to return), but my goal wasn’t to play (in) a preseason game,” said Dwight Howard still recovering from back surgery. “My goal is to win a championship . “That’s what we’re shooting for.” The Lakers have seven more preseason games, with the next one on Wednesday, October 10th against the Portland Trailblazers.

“I’m a hard worker,” Howard said. “My back just has to get stronger and I have to get everything that surrounds it stronger too, so I can play at a high level. That’s my goal. That’s my focus. Like I said, I want to give these guys everything and give the game of basketball everything because at the end of the year I want to hold up the trophy, so I want to make sure I’m 100 percent.” Brown added “I don’t know what I’m looking at, I just know watching him, he looks good. What does that mean? It doesn’t really mean anything, but he does look good in practice.” My opinion is that he didn’t play because he thinks he doesn’t have to in the preseason.

Pottermore: Game Review

In this game, Pottermore, you go through each chapter, buying your books, finding galleons, being sorted into your House, and dueling, potion-making, and even searching the castle, while following in Harry’s footsteps. When you go through the chapters of each book, you can find potion ingredients, which give your house points. Galleons are stored in your Gringotts vault, which can be accessed from Diagon Alley, at any time. Dueling is a lot harder. You have to type the letters, but only when the smoke reaches it, when the circle is its biggest. If the spell is cast correctly, it has a certain potency, judging by how well it was cast. The more potency, the stronger the spell/ charm/ curse/ hex/ jinx. When you’re going to duel, you should practice first, other wise you may incorrectly cast the spell. When you go to Ollivander’s to get your wand, you answer questions to help the wand choose you. The same goes with the sorting hat. When you get chosen for your house, the whole screen is filled with the sorting hat’s brim, as if you really were having the sorting hat on your head…

Battlefield 3 realease on 10/25/11

On October 25 2011 the most amazing game of the year (in my opinion) is coming out and it is named  Battlefield 3. This game has blown away critics from the very first trailer even though some were not impressed by the Battlefield 3 beta which ended on October 15th. I personally think this game is going to be so amazing -I pre-ordered it- this game has all of the recent software in it like Frostbite 2.0 which in the Battlefield 2 game they introduced collapsing building’s but now they have introduced where everything is destructible in some way like if some body shoots a wall the wall will start to break and crumble. Also another thing they introduces is full-out customization with your weapon; like flashlight’s and red lasers on your weapon, and I am not sure but they also may be putting character customization into the game. In This game they have all the vehicles you could imagine; they have tanks, cars, Apc’s, helicopters and the new vehicle that they added jets. This game is going to be amazing and I will play this game series forever because in my opinion it is the best.

2012’s Possible Tech Trends!

According to Pete Cashmore, a writer for CNN,  2011 has been a very historic year in technology. Everything we do is slowly becoming a new part of technology. With the Kinect becoming more and more popular and the IPhone constantly being upgraded, what will the years too come be like for technology?

Well, with tablet computers and touch screen phones, we do not truly need mouses or keyboards as user interfaces for our computer systems. The new Windows 8 has already given an example of a touch screen desktop computer. But maybe computers will be completely operated without keyboards in 2012. Heck, with Microsoft’s Kinect technology, computers may be completely hands free!

Another possible future for technology could be the rise and fall of social networks. With Facebook’s 800 million users and counting, The site is upgrading more and more. This is causing web activity to constantly be shared. Although people will want to use Facebook because of it’s new features, the privacy of it’s users may be reduced greatly.

Voice control is also another big thing that may change in 2012. With Siri for the IPad and Vlingo for the Android, phone’s are becoming virtual servants. These programs can be integrated with robotics to create realistic machines that can have conversations with people. Or maybe Voice controlled technology can be used to control Televisions and Computers. Apple is rumored to have been creating voice controlled T.V remotes.

We do not know what the future may hold for our technology. But whatever happens to our computers, I am sure that our technology will get a lot better.

       Hi I hope you guys have had a great first week of school. Well as you know there are a lot of events coming up. NanoWrimo is coming up in November. I talked to Mrs. Greaver for some information about the NanoWrimo.

“The Purpose of the NanoWrimo is to excite students and show them that writing isn’t an evil thing.” said Mrs. Greaver. I asked her how long we have to write the NanoWrimo and I quote “All the students have from the beginning of November to the end of November to finish it. The NanoWrimo can be about anything you want. It could be about Zombies, Vampires, Harry Potter or just about life it’s self. I’d recommend that what ever it is that you write about it is appropriate and has good language.”

“You are more than welcome to start you NanoWrimo early.” Said Mrs. Greaver.
