Tech today

I chose this topic because of how tech is part of our life today, would you want to have no TV i know i wouldn’t. tech does many things for us from entertainment to helping us clean our teeth. first technology is things made by science to make life easier and furthering science further. Because of technology our average lifespan is twice that of ancient times.

The reason it is important to the people is that it helps us communicate larger lifespans and people more healthy but the biggest reason is comfort fire wasn’t discovered to help cook that was later. the reason its important to animals is that it makes us top of the food chain and destroys their homes. the reason its important for me is that it makes my life easier.

This is a very long post title and the permalink should probably be shortened later

The topic im talking about today is the newest hobbit called the battle of the five armies. This is the third movie in the series and airs live on Dec. 18 2014. It starts with the characters watching from the lonely mountain as the dragon Smaug destroys lake town. from their it goes on with the war with the orcs and the political intrigue that happens during the movie and where one dwarf is slowly consumed by the Dragon sickness.

I dare you to read this post!

Five Rhinos

The topic I’m am talking about is on the last five white rhinos. As of December 15 one of the six white rhinos alive died of age at 44. he was one that was in a failed try to get him to mate with an elderly female called Nola. with that there is only five, one of which is female. out of the five there is an elderly female called Nola, two young females called Najin and Fatu, and finally a young male by the name of Sudan.

The first article was found on the Washington post at this link http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2014/12/15/a-northern-white-rhino-has-died-there-are-now-five-left-in-the-entire-world/. The story was written by Abby Ohlheiser

The second article is found on the site the christian science monitor at this link http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2014/1215/Only-five-white-rhinos-left-on-earth.-Can-this-species-be-saved-video. This article was written by the combined efforts of the staff of the news site and was well written by the fact they stayed to the story only and not other interesting facts. My favorite line though sad that this is needed is that Efforts will now be made to keep the species alive through in vitro fertilization. While my least favorite is that Attempts to mate Angalifu with Nola weren’t successful.

In my opinion the first article is better. The reason it is better is for that the fact that she adds details that help in the article other than just the story itself. an example of that is when talking about how the species may need to be reproduced through science the first article gives you details on what they will probably do. that is the reason i think it is better if you agree good if not i accept that. Though i recommend that you read the first article it’s very informative.

Blogroll: collection of links that point to external websites recommended by a blog owner. The Links reside in the side bar and can lead to any type of side website, not just blogs.

CMS: Content Management System. Any software platform that makes it simpler for users to publish, organize, and manage information on the internet.

Comments: Feature in which site visitors can share their thoughts and ideas about the content of a post or page and can even reply to what other commenters have said.

Dashboard: Set of blog management screens used to configure and maintain a WordPress site. Also known as the “back-end” of a WordPress blog.

Hotlinking: Displaying an image into a web page by loading it directly from a third-party site. Though common, the practice is controversial, and it is always best to get permission from the other site owner first.

Kitchen Sink: An icon on the main formatting toolbar of the Edit Post or Edit Page screen. By clicking on the icon, an additional row of formatting and other tools appears.

Page: A method of content creation in WordPress. Pages generally have static content and do not have dates or times associated with them. Unlike posts, pages cannot have categories and tags assigned to them, and new pages are not published in RSS feeds. A typical example of a page is an “About Me” page.

Permalink: The full URL of a WordPress post or page. It is automatically assigned when the post or page is created, but it can be manually edited via the Edit Post / Edit Page screen.

Plugin: A set of code that “plugs in” to a WordPress site that adds some functionality or capability. Available only in the self-hosted version of WordPress, not on WordPress.com sites.

Post: The main unit of content creation in WordPress. Each post is a blog-style entry with its own title.

Tag: An important keyword or term that helps describe the content of a post. Though not required for each post, bloggers are encouraged to apply tags, as they assist both visitors and search engines to determine the subject matter of a post. Tags are more specific in nature than categories.

Tag Cloud: Visual representation of all the tags applied in a blog’s history of posts. Those tags that have been most used appear nearer the center of the “cloud” and in larger font. Lesser-used tags remain on the periphery and in smaller fonts. Tag clouds give visitors an instant idea of what a blog is all about.

Site Title: The name of a blog. In WordPress, this title generally displays prominently at the top of the site. The site title is set in the General Settings screen.

WordPress.com: Version of WordPress that includes free hosting, backup, and maintenance. Bloggers can set up a new site quickly and easily on this platform, though it lacks some of the powerful features of the self-hosted version.

WordPress.org: Self-hosted version of WordPress in which the blogger is responsible for installing, configuring, maintaining, and backing up the WordPress site. Though the software platform is still free, the site owner is responsible for paying for web hosting and domain registration fees. This version of WordPress is more versatile and contains more features than WordPress.com.
