Another Ad

So today I am yet again writing my own ad, but this time for a job that will do service to someone, help them, or make their day easier.

For my topic I am making an ad about my dog business I am doing this summer with my family.

The ad starts with a lady going on a vacation but having to make quick calls to see if she can find someone to tend and care for her puppy. She can’t seem to find anyone with the time to, or in her price rang that she is willing to pay. Then time freezes and a man (or woman) walks out and explains the troubles of leaving and trying to find a sitter. Then the screen goes to different pictures of dogs and puppies playing with me and my brothers and the man/or woman says, “These kids will be happy to watch over  your unique and very special dog or puppy. They will also take them on walks, plus they are very low cost and convenient at $3 every half hour for walking, and only $7 a day for each individual dog/or puppy.” It goes back to the girl and she is giving me and my brothers instructions for taking care of her dog and then she goes to the airport.

Cyrus the Great

Cyrus the Great is known for being the ‘great’ king of Persia. His empire was very big. The biggest in the world at that time.  It reached  from Asia Minor to India.

After the Medes, who Cyrus came from, won a war with the Assyrians, it was divided in half between the Medes and the Babylonians. The Medes got North and East. The Babylonians got South and West. When Cyrus came to power he united the Medes, Persians, and Lydians into a new empire. Cyrus claimed power over all the Medes and Persian kingdoms. Many of the kings were his relatives and so they submitted to him willingly. This established the official Persian empire. While Cyrus was king he actually conquered Babylon which was a big deal. His daughter married Darius the Great who would be another great king. While in reign he let the Hebrews go back and rebuild Jerusalem.

Cyrus the Great was succeeded by his son Cambyses the second who reigned for many years. According to some journal writings his reign was not a happy one.

Business

So today the essay was supposed to be on either, ‘write a fictional story about what you would do if you were given the tools to make your own business.’  Or, ‘write a fictional ad if you had a business, and explain why and how it would benefit the people who buy it.’.

I chose to write a fictional ad.

 My ad would start out as a lady  rummaging through her cupboards looking for coffee, hot cocoa, etc. But she can’t find it. Then time freezes, and a woman walks into the kitchen. She says, “Why look for one of these non beneficial drinks? Instead look for a pack of these.”  She lifts up a box full of tulsi tea bags. She then explains how they are beneficial to you. “Tulsi is a great tea, but is not recognized by most people. Tulsi tea is useful for many things. It reduces stress, supports the immune system, is abundant in antioxidants, builds stamina, powerful adaptogen, aids digestion, anti aging, balances metabolism, balances energy levels, and uplifts mood. It also is a hot drink and can be sweetened by any natural sweetener.” The lady walks out of the kitchen and time restarts. The lady then goes to the store and buys tulsi tea. She puts honey in it and drinks the warm soothing drink. Then it does the whole, ‘call this number to get tulsi.’ And the ad ends.

Greeks

The Spartans and the Athenians were very different civilizations of the Greeks. The Spartans were a very war like people who instead of putting their seven year old boys into school they put them into the army.  But the Athenians were very different, they took more care of their children and put the seven year old’s into schools. 

Greek Religion

We all know about the Greek Gods. There are a lot, but we  know mostly of the 12 main ones, Zeus, Poseidon, Hermes, Hera, Hades, Dionysus, Demeter, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Aphrodite. Did you know that these were more like public Gods and Goddesses, but  the Greeks worshiped and feared what they called The Backyard Gods. The Backyard Gods were the Greeks dead family members who were buried around their property. 

Women and Men

Men and women were very different. They were closer together if they were Athenians but if  you were a couple in Sparta, you would not be able to see or speak to your mate.  The men went to work and the army, while the girls took care of the children and themselves by making sure they cleaned their hair and bodies. They made their hair silky and smooth, which was very important to them.

France’s Coulter

France, and more specifically its capital city of Paris, has been a high culture center dating back to the 1600’s in most of Europe. In the 1900’s the French culture and its high society appeal spread to be known throughout most of the world. France has also played an important role in cuisine, fashion and cinema, beginning in the late 1800’s. There are several different regional languages throughout France including Breton and Alsatian, Occitan and the Basque language which is in no way related to French. Because France maintains freedom of thought and religion, as established in the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen in 1789, there are several different religions practiced in their country. French cuisine is world famous and plays a strong role in the country’s reputation for high culture, as is the strong connection to high style fashion.

There is also approximately 65 million people living in France today! Religions practiced in France include Roman Catholicism, Islam, Protestantism, and Judaism.  France is well known for being a romantic country with strong emphasis on passion, not only for love relationships but for food, wine, living well, and less-commercialized pursuits.

The Aeneid is a story written by Virgil, an author and poet. He wrote during the time of Augustus Caesar. He mostly wrote about stories surrounding the founding of Rome. The Aeneid was a story about this Trojan prince, Aneas who survived the Trojan war. He has to flee Troy with his family and find a new homeland. During his journey his dad dies and is buried on the island of Sicily. Now Aneas is really starting to want to settle down and find a new place to start a new civilization.  They next sail on to Carthage.  The Queen of Carthage, Dido, falls head over heals for Aneas and wants him to stay forever. But when Aneas has to leave she curses him that one day the people of Carthage will fight and be destroy Aneas’ descendants. It turns out that later in history that does happen.

IF I WENT AROUND THE WORLD

If I could travel around the world I’d make sure to go to Australia! I have a friend named Anika who is from there. I love kangaroos and koalas. Another one of the things I like about Australia is the accents. Anika’s accent is so cool and sometimes funny. In Australia they call erasers, rubbers! And the trash, the bin! It’s fun for me to guess what’s she’s talking about.  This one time she said this really funny word and I had know idea what she was saying! It was sooooooo funny! She had to point to what she was talking about!

Another place I would go is South America! I love animals and it sure has a bunch. I want to go and explore the jungles! the only bad thing is that I could get eaten by a tiger or jaguar, or even a leopard! Scary!

Those are the places I want to go even if their not far away from me, in North America.

THE PROPHETS BEFORE THE FALL OF ISRAEL

Some of the prophets of Israel that I studied this week were before the captivity and fall of Israel and others were after.  I am only talking about the ones before the fall.

Some of the jobs of the prophets were to deliver warnings and encouragements  to the people. Also they performed miracles for the people. They gave encouragements to the people  when they were doing the right thing, and warnings when they were going against God’s will or sinning and they were telling them of the consequences for their wrong choices.

Elijah was a stern and mighty man who performed many great miracles and he was a prophet to Israel telling Ahab of his sins and their consequences. He, at one time called 800 prophets of Baal to show the people that his God was better.  When the prophets of Baal failed Elijah showed the people God’s power by getting an altar, pouring water all over it and calling fire from God. Instead of the water putting out the fire, the fire burned on top of the water like oil. The people started to follow him because of this. After this turn of events all of the prophets of Ball were then killed. Elijah then chose Elisha to be the next prophet after being one for many years.

Elisha worked many more amazing miracles than Elijah. He was not as harsh as Elijah had been so he was even more famous. He dealt with the people as much as he dealt with the leaders. Through the power of God he healed the sick, provided food for those in need, and protected them, and the king of Israel, from invaders. Elisha was also very famous from outside of the city and a general from Ben-Hadad came to see Elisha to be healed. Elisha told him to bath 7 times in the Jordan river. The general did this and was healed.

We all know the story of Jonah, he was swallowed by a whale because he was afraid to go and preach to the people of Nineveh so he tried to run away from God. So God caught him by a whale.  He was in the whale for about 3 days. Before he prayed for forgiveness and God made the whale spit him out. After this happened he went to the city of Nineveh and preached to the people.

Jeremiah was the last prophet before the fall. He preached of repentance and prophesied of the destruction of Jerusalem. He was nicknamed ‘the weeping prophet’ because of his sad book, Lamentations, in which he weeps of the fall and destruction of Jerusalem and Judah.

That is all I have for my essay today.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE MOVIES.

One of my favorite movies is A Dolphin Tale. It is a true story about this boy named Sawyer who on his way to summer school finds a dolphin with it’s tail stuck in a crab cage. He cuts it free and calls the animal marine health people. They come and take the dolphin to their building.  Sawyer makes friends with one of the owners daughter, Hazel. He then starts skipping school to go to the animal life marine society. His mom finds out and after talking it over finally decides that he can do that and help with the animals instead of summer school.

One of the sad parts of the movie is when they have to cut the tail fin off of the dolphin, which they named Winter.  Hazel is very depressed and so is Sawyer. Winter starts to swim by moving her body like a snake, which is very bad because of something to do with Winters spine.

Later Sawyer’s cousin, Kyle is in the army and there is an explosion. Kyle ends up loosing part of his leg because of it. They find a man to make Kyle a prosthetic leg. The man who gave Kyle his leg also makes a new tail fin for Winter.

In part of the movie, Bethany Hamilton, who is a professional surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack, comes and swims with winter. It is really an awesome movie with some sad and some happy scenes.

That is all for my essay today.
