What do you care about?
What are you passionate about?
Well the week 9 Student Blogging Challenge is to write a great post about what you are passionate about (like a world issue). I am choosing to write about a world issue which is poverty:
Poverty is a major world issue and effects lots of people. Not just in 3rd world countries. Poverty is when you don’t own very much of anything, absolute poverty is when you hardly have any clothes, food and drink, money, shelter or materials you need to stay healthy and fit. Poverty reduction is a major goal and issue international originations such as the united nations and the world bank.
I found this info at:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poverty
What can you do about poverty?
Watch: Anti-Poverty Week: 22/10/2013, Behind the News and tell me what you think and answer the questions below.
What does Daphne do you help people in poverty?
How would you feel working to feed the poor?
What can you do to help?
Also watch: Poverty Campaigner: 21/10/2014, Behind the News and tell me what you think and answer the questions below.
How many people in Australia are living below the poverty line?
How many kids are living below the poverty line?
There are so many things people can do for this world issue, and lots of those things we either can’t or aren’t doing. So join in the fight for this world issue contribute something.

I bet you are wondering why the change? Well its for a reason, which is the student blogging challenge. For the student blogging challenge you got to choose a celebration. A celebration can be world wide, town, city, state, country or it can just be something that your family celebrates. I chose didn’t know whether to choose Halloween or Christmas because they are my favourite celebrations. I chose Halloween because it is a fun time of the year where you get to be what ever you want whether its a scary monster or just fancy dress.
Thank you to

Have a great day
For the 3rd student blogging challenge was to leave a comment on the student blogging challenge about a video called A Fair(y) Use Tale ( you can find this video at http://studentchallenge.edublogs.org/ on the Week 5: Pictures and Videos post). It was talking about what copy right is and how not to break copy right laws.
I would like to say a BIG Thank You to everyone/company of all the photos and videos that I have on my blog.
I would especially like to say a BIG Thank You to the year 5 teachers, because they taken lots of photos and created lots of criteria/word docs for us.
Do you have anyone to thank?
And who do you have to think?
Have a great day
Our second Student Blogging Challenge is to choose from 5 different activities which you can find at Mr Bogush’s blog. There are 3 parts to this challenge, but Mrs Kane and Miss C decided that we would only do challenge 1 and 2. For activity 1 I chose activity 3 this is what it is: Do you use Google Chrome? Install the Ghosterly extension. Now visit five of your favorite webpages. Ghosterly will tell you what companies are tracking your online activities. Write a post on what you found? What is your reaction? Will this change sites that you visit online? What type of sites had more tracking of your activity? Are you surprised?
My 5 favourite webpages I chose were:
These are the results I got.
For cool maths games I found out that I was being tracked by 66 people/companies!
For This is sand I found out that was being tracked by 2 people/companies.
For Silk I am being tracked by 4 people/companies.
For Kizoa I am being tracked by 3 people/companies.
And for Student Blogging Challenge I was being tracked by 14 people/companies.
I found out that you could block people and I have blocked some people on cool maths games so now I only have 10 people/companies tracking me.
I didn’t think that there were going to be 66 people/companies tracking me so I was a bit surprised. I never really thought about people/companies tracking you on websites and how many people/companies actually track you. So when heard about this activity I thought it sounded interesting. I am still going on these websites because there are ways to prevent being tracked; like blocking them. The sight that had the most people tracking me was cool maths games. I think that I am tracked the most on there is because lots of people go on cool maths games, which probably makes it easier to track you. The Student Blogging Challenge had the 2nd most which was 14.
Always check you footprint.
And if your being followed.
Do you know how many people track you and where?
Have a great day
