One of the top games of 2014, geometry dash is exciting in its simplicity. While there is a "lite" version of the game, the paid version is much better because of its extensive features not offered in the free version. The base of the game is simple, you try and jump over spikes as a cube to beat the level. You can also change into other forms once you go through portals, like in the first level, a spaceship. While this may sound boring, it is actually quite addicting and side effects may include extreme frustration only compensated by the glory of finally beating the level. A suggestion would be to get the lite version first, and then if you like it than you should get the full version. The free version only has access to the first seven levels, and you cannot play other people's created levels or make your own level. The full version comes with 18 levels and you can play others levels and create your own. Another great aspect of the full version is that you can collect many more, cubes, spaceships, UFO's, and balls. These don't affect your playing ability, but are purely for aesthetics. The levels get harder and harder as you get better at the game, and soon levels seem nearly impossible. After much determination and missing that last jump and wanting to throw your iPad out of the window, you finally beat it and stop asphyxiating. There comes a point where if you beat a level, it seems that you have no life.
As I walked into English class today, like any other day, I thought it was going to be another normal day where we sit and talk and rear the odyssey. I was unprepared when Fitz said we were going to go down to the wrestling mat. When we got there the instructions were simple; have your head on the line, and your arms by your side. He then told us to breathe in and out as slowly as we could. As I am sitting here reflecting on this exercise, I realize how peaceful and serene one can be by just sitting and thinking about your troubles, and what you can make of them. Forgetting all things before, and what is to come, but just staying in the present is the most important thing you can do.
Just a short one
Tonight for dinner, we went to a place in downtown Winchester called the black horse tavern. We arrived 10 minutes before my dad and brother and just ordered drinks and appetizers. Once they arrived, we talked for a while, and then ordered. When our food came, we all stuffed ourselves and once we were finished with our food we paid the bill, left and went home for dessert.
Happy March everyone!
GMOs have been accepted by the U.S. for a large profit, better tasting and better looking foods. Other countries when asked if they would use GMOs turned the offer down for the better of the country. As we have used these GMOs in our foods, cancer rates have risen greatly and only one out of ten cancer victims have been genetic. This means that something must be linked. This was traced back to food quality passed in 1994. When Europe turned down steroids for their cows in change for irradiated milk it seemed a strange choice, but cancer in Europe is surprisingly lower. Right now, the US is the 7th highest cancer rate out of any country. With 300.2 people per 100,000, the UK only has 266.9, this is one example of how GMOs have affected the U.S. More than the U.K. On the plus side, from a business standpoint GMOs make perfect sense. This is because "improving" foods, like corn so that it can provide its own water is not only bad for the corn, but also for the soil and the people consuming it. But like coca cola, in the U.K. it is produced with sugar, resulting in a better tasting and better for you product. It is different in the U.S. They use sugar additives such as high fructose corn syrup. Overall GMOs are worse for you, but easier to produce.
