Area 2
I was able to demonstrate tolerance during year 4 my classmate was making fun of my last name I didn't fight back but instead told on him.

 Area 3
The person without tolerance;

The person with tolerance;
He ordered that all Jews should be killed.
 Martin Luther King has tolerance because he didn’t fight back when they bomb his house, when they arrested him, when he abused and when he was mistreated.
6 million Jews were killed during world war2 under the leader ship of Hitler.
He didn’t fight back in violent but stood up for what is right. By telling the nation that there should be equality around of differences.  
He hates the Jews and blames them Germany’s loss in world war one.
He has a compassion for those people who are mistreated because they are different. He will do everything he can, so they’re will be equality among the white and colored people.

Feeling some anger and blame.
 He feels that there is hope for equality among men.

     My Highlights On Camp

Day 1

The most fun and funniest one was action. There was a red peaceful sleeping bag on the bed when suddenly a boy tackled it which was me. I was still fighting it when somebody got me by the shirt it was… Vince he was the one who was recording the whole thing. He through the red sleeping bag to my face and BAM!!! It hit my face and fell down the floor. I tried to get up but I was too tired and died.

Day 2

At sailing the whole of W and V went down to the beach. It was so awesome we had life jackets on and wetsuits on Vince and I partnered up together. Vince and I waited and waited until the next sailing boat was free. Vince and I quickly went in and climbed up the sailing boat. Vince was doing all the stirring and I was doing the sailing part. Our bout tipped over and Vince and I jumped off.

Day 3

The one that I won’t forget was climbing wall. Because I made it all the way to the top for the slab. But for vertical one it was a bit harder I didn’t make it and I tried vertical two I didn’t make it too.

Day 4

The one I wouldn’t ever forget is the way back home by the ferry. It was a very awesome and long journey to go back to the ferry stop

Interesting Things about The rocky shore

The rocky shore is one of the most fascinating of all ecosystems. It is packed with a wide variety of marine life. The shore is covered by the sea and pounded by the waves at high tide in the intertidal zone. Low tide means exposure to drying air and heat. Plants and animals living here must be able to live both in air and water; they must be able to survive the loss of almost 70 % of their body water during dry periods, and, in addition, be able to cope with freshwater rain when exposed and salty seawater when submerged.

 Expensive Cigarettes

    Smoking has become unaffordable and uncool for many teenagers according to a new survey which shows the habit declining among the young.

    The annual Action on Smoke and Health (ASH) smoking  2010/2011, released today, shows smoking among 14- and 15-year-olds at its lowest since the survey began in 1999, and recorded the largest annual decline in daily smoking by youths since 2003/2004.

    The Year 10 ASH Snapshot survey, sampling about half of all Year 10 students across the country, is the largest of its kind.

    It showed the number of daily smokers dropped from 5.5 per cent to 4.1 per cent over the period, and the number of regular smokers (daily, weekly or monthly) dropped from 10 per cent to 8.2 per cent of all students.

    ASH director Ben Yourdon put the drop in smoking levels across the board down to tax hikes.

    "I think probably the biggest factor in terms of the reduction in youth smoking has been the recent tax increases.

    The tax on cigarettes has increased by about 30 per cent over the last 18 months, and I think that's had a huge impact because young smokers are especially sensitive to how much cigarettes cost."

    Society's perception around buying and smoking cigarettes was changing, with more communities and councils discussing smoke free zones, he said.

    "We're getting more and more quit attempts by adults as well. The environment in which these young people are growing up and the way in which they are being exposed to tobacco and the risk factors around smoking is also undergoing a change, and I think that's influence which is trickling down to their behavior.

    "The rates in which smoking is going down....are quite indicative that perhaps smoking is not as cool as it was, it's not being considered as an expression of being grown up and independent, but actually being independent is being able to make strong choices not to start smoking in the first place."

    He said 14- and 15-year-olds were surveyed because that was the average age at which New Zealanders picked up the habit.

    "Almost every single smoker has started before they were 18. So surveying this age group is really important in terms of understanding about young people taking up smoking, the reasons they take up smoking, and helping us implement policies and campaigns which are going to help prevent them from starting in the first place."

    Maori youth remained the largest smoking group, with 18 per cent of Maori youths surveyed classified as a regular smoker.

My Own Words

    People who are smoking are getting less and less.  According to the survey, cigarettes are becoming too expensive for teenagers to buy. The Action in the Smoke and the Health (ASH) reported a drop in smoking because of the tax hike. Another reason for the drop in smoking is risk factors.

My comments

    I think smoking is very unhealthy because first of all you get bad breath, black teeth and yellow nails but the worst of them all is cancer.
