Is media telling the truth about disasters?

In English class we got a task that was to write a critical article about natural disasters that is happening in America right now and if media is telling us everything about casualties. 
Is media hiding casualties that happened in the storm "Florence". It's only a couple of tens of people that media confirms that died in the storm. I do not think this is right. Either they know about more people that died, or if they don't, I think there are more casualties. I think they don't want people to know that so many people are dying, and the government is manipulating the people to not say anything in media. 
Last year president Trump said that the storm that hit Puerto Rico was not a problem and that he and his men were as ready for the storm as they possibly could be. After the storm he was happy with himself and the good job they did, even though at least 3000 people died due to the storm. That is not something you can be proud of and say that you did a great job. I think Trump is wrong. Here you can see something he said after the storm: “I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success.”

What I learned today about how to have a good conversation

Today in English class we learned how to have a proper good conversation and how to be a good listener. We also watched a short video with 10 points on how to have a good conversation. 
I learned a lot about how to be a good listener and learned things that could be useful in the future. Something else I realize was that people really appreciate small things like that you show that you see them, and respect what they have to say. It was a helpful and great English lesson, where we not only learned English but also other things.

My first impressions after reading

I thought that before reading the book, it seemed interesting, and when I started reading I noticed that the book was written in a special and unusual way. It was kind of like a diary but at the same time a novel. The book was even better than what I thought it was going to be and caught me. It made me not want to stop reading because I wanted to see what happened next.
Therefore I think that the author was really good and aware of every sentence he wrote. It seems like a great book to me and I look forward to finishing reading it.

Which book did I choose?

Today we got the opportunity to choose a book to read. We could choose between two books, one by Nich Hornby, and one by Sherman Alexie. We watched a short video about an interview with Sherman, and then read a review about Nicks book. Nicks book is called about a boy, while Shermans book is called a part-time Indian.
I chose to read the book written by Sherman because it seems like the most interesting book to me. After watching the interview with him, he sounded like a person with a lot of knowledge and wisdom, so I thought his book would be the most interesting to read. The part-time Indian concept also seem quite interesting. I am very excited to start reading the book.

Sandvika skole: English expectations




I don't really have any expectations for this semester, but the only thing I expect from English class is just to learn more English and get a wider vocabulary. Other than that I just hope that we will have fun while we learn and I look forward to learning at this school.

The story of my phones

Story of my phones


Last weekend i bought a new phone. The last few months I have had a lot of problems with my last one. It was an iphone 6, which I had for about 3-4 years. It used to be working totally fine, until about a year ago, when the phone was bent and the screen cracked.

After about a week the touch screen stopped working. Then I had no other choice than to switch the screen. I ordered a cheep screen from ebay.com and it took about a month before it arrived. In the mean while i was struggeling with my messed up screen, and was happy when I got my new one. I had to bend my phone back to normal in order to replaced the screen properly, but I managed to do it and for only 150 krones I had a new working screen.

Then it was working for a few months before I got problems with that screen too. It seemed that when I replaced the screen last time, I switched the place of two different screws by accident when I assembled it, and the one that was a little longer than the other one made a little hole into the screen from the inside. It cracked exactly at that point where the screw was, and I was thinking of buying another screen. But I waited for a little because the phone was still working, and I did not want to spend even more money on it yet. But unfortunately it was getting worse, and a day it stopped working.
Then, I had to order yet another screen, but this time I ordered one that was a little more expensive because I wanted one with good quality this time. But since with free shipping from China, it often takes up to two months for the screen to arrive, so I decided to fix my phone temporarily.
So I took my old screen that still worked, and assembled it to the phone again, and saw that it worked since now that the phone was not bent anymore, the touch still worked. So in the meantime, it worked just fine, even though it was cracked.

After 1 month the screen arrived, and I thought that since this time I spent 300 krones on the screen it should be better quality, even though it was from a random Chinese factory. So I assembled it again, and managed to screw the right screws to the right places, it worked fine for a little period of time. But unfortunately, about a month or two later, the screen started to blink. I Thought that it might just be temporary, and ignored it because I thought that the screen was all good since I spent 300 krones on it. But one day it got to the point that it melted.

So what I think happened is that the screen was made so poorly that it required more power than the battery could serve, and it got to the point where the battery melted, and the whole phone died. Then I had to be using an old doro phone for 1 month... I promise that I will never do that again it was the worst. But about a week after school started I was tired of the old bad phones, and just bought an Iphone 7. And that was one of the best decisions of my life.
