Overall

Social Media class helped me discover much more and help me better understand on how social media can work sometimes. This class helped me understand better on how Facebook work and how the creators keep changing algorithms and etc on Facebook. Social media is websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. Social media also helped me better understand on how to use it for a business and from a business aspect. Like for example; businesses should post often and keep updating information and their business page, use friendly and familiar hashtags, post fun videos and images to get people to think in a familiar way as well.

Light Weights VS Heavy Weights

Most people that workout think that lifting higher weight with less reps does more with helping build muscle. But in actuality, lifting light weights with high repetition does the same thing. Sure big weights looks more cool but less weight helps bring down the stress on the muscles that you are trying to workout. Lifting heavy weights helps releases more muscle-growth and fat-burning hormones than lifting light weights. Lifting heavy weights burns more body fat than lifting light weights, and the heavier the weight, the more calories you burn with each rep. Because they recruit fast-twitch fibers, heavy weights also burn more fat after your workout. Fast-twitch fibers tap into fat stores in your body for energy, since it’s available more quickly than oxygen. By lifting heavier weights for a fewer reps, which calls for a shorter workout, actually builds more muscle than a longer workout using lighter weights. The more muscle mass you have, the faster your metabolism.

Playoffs Baby!

It’s one of the best times of the year for basketball. The journey of who gets to play and become the world NBA Champions. The NBA playoffs are a time to hopefully watch your favorite team and cheer even more and louder too see if they have what it takes to become an NBA champion. If you love to see Lebron James, who is one of the top if not the best NBA Player on the planet right now, get to just plain out ball! Lebron in  was 2-4 in the NBA finals and most of know how he and the Cavaliers ended the 2016 title chase. Lebron lead them to the Cavaliers first NBA Championship title and before was down 3-1 to the very stacked and talented Golden State Warriors.

Now we get to see Lebron just do his thing and hopefully get his team back to the finals for a fourth consecutive year! Lebron also leads the playoffs with the most points in playoff history and he’s only 33 years of age. In my opinion most people are tuned in for most of the playoff games and really want to see who gets where during the playoffs.

Positives and Fun Sides of Fall

 

autumn

Fall or “autumn”, in my personal opinion is one of the most beautiful and best times of the year. Fall is when football starts, is when farmers can finally harvest, Halloween, the trees turn and look beautiful as the leafs fall, still warm for at least half of fall. Football is how I and many other people around me is why we love fall. Football helps get everyone together on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and to watch their favorite teams and forget about everything to see his and her favorite team try to win. Harvest is the best time of the year for farmers. Its when they get up at dawn and go all day to get the crops in. Most farmers that I know love it when they get up at dawn and just get to harvest all day long, get to dump on the go, unload, and hurry to get back so the combine can unload and so forth.

I also like fall because, well…… my birthday is in October and I personally just love the month of October ( besides for my birthday). October is when football is getting down to the playoffs and to see who’s gonna try to win it all. Fall is when the weather is perfect to me. During the day its just nice enough to wear a long sleeve shirt but not to cold to put a sweatshirt on till later at night. Its also nice enough to still have bonfires at night. Back home me and my friends love to have bonfires, we would have a bonfire at least every weekend and its was the best of times I had with my friends.

OBJ Trade. Good or Bad?

Odell Beckham Jr is one of the top wide receivers in the NFL today. There have been many rumors going around about him getting dropped from the Giants and getting traded. I think this is true because according to what Adam Schefter, who is one of the best sports analysis’s in today’s sports game. Odell has been causing many problems for the Giants team and staff like on the field fights, random sideline outbursts, and stuff like kicking the net during a game. He doesn’t even want to step onto the Giants field without a new contract because he thinks he deserves more then what he plans on getting for the 2018 season. In the 2018 season he is set to make around $8.5 million. Any team that wants Odell Beckham Jr will happily pay what he wants to to get paid for a new contract. Odell

Popular Summer Vacation Spots

A vacation is described as a period of suspension of work, study, or other activity. Usually for rest, recreation, or travel or a holiday as well. Going on vacation is such a good way to get away from everything and relax and see something that you have never seen before. From what i researched, Hawaii is the number one summer vacation spot. Numerous people just go there for the beaches and the weather. These factors are very nice but something cool that I noticed was how beautiful the scenery in Hawaii that makes the ocean look so beautiful. The culture is another big thing to go to Hawaii. Many were brought to the islands to work on the sugar and pineapple plantations that once were prevalent on every major island. Each of these various immigrant groups brought with them their own unique cultures. Today, Hawaii is truly a melting pot of all of these cultures. Almost 25% of people that live on the islands claim ancestry of at least two or more races.

Spring Break Fun

South Padre

I personally think that spring break is a good thing for college students. Students need a way to just forget about school for a week and go do something fun. Everyone gets sick of going to class throughout the week, even teachers. Spring break helps students and teachers just get a break and get away from everyone to relax and do what he or she wants to do. Some people like to go on a “vacation” during spring break or just go back home and relax and work for a little bit to save up some money for school. On the other hand most college students I’ve seen go to a place where people party all week like South Padre or Daytona Beach for example. people i think do this because some people like to blow off steam this way or this is just what “having a good time” is to these individuals.
