The World is Flat by Thomas Friedman

Thomas Friedman's book The Word is Flat talks about how the world has flattened from companies doing trade to individuals doing trade. One of the most important things I think Thomas Friedman talked about were "The Steroids". "The Steroids" are personal technology. Nowadays, even cell phones and mp3 players like the ipod touch can connect to the Internet. It has given us the ability to receive information in our hands at any location. That means that we can have an information…

-It's interesting how Thomas Friedman links the advancements in technology or the advancements that "flatteners" created to a flat world

-The quote "Whatever can be done will be done," I feel is spot on, anything that us humans desire to create will be created with the knowledge and the stamina to work hard at it until we… Continue

About Me

Hey guys my name is Angela, I'm 15 and go to the Academy of Allied Health and Science. I currently want to become a veterinarian, but that is suspect to change.

Me, Myself, and I:)

Hey! My name is Sumaira, I'm 14 years old and go to AAHS. I'm not lying when I say that I'm not your average person, such as one characteristic of me is that I'm a mass of contradictions. For example one of my pet peeves is how modern music is only about love and break-ups, and how real musicians write about everything such as world peace, or even something simple like a rainy day, however the modern music-about love and break-ups are the only kind of music i really listen too. Another…

All About Me! :)

Hey, I am Karishma from the Academy of Allied Health and Science in Neptune, New Jersey. My school is pretty small, with about 80 kids per grade, but it is has a warm, inviting atmosphere. I love to surf the web, play lacrosse, and piano. I love to eat, really how could you not? Especially Chinese food, which is heavenly. I absolutely adore Michael Jackson's music and I practice my moonwalk all the time, yet I'm still really bad at it. I usually enjoy listening to most music on the…

A Little Something About Myself =)

Hi! My birthday is on July 3rd, and am going to turn 15 soon. My life circles around friends and basketball. Without them, my life would be pretty boring. I have been playing basketball since I was 9 years old and hope to continue on playing for many more years. I love my friends and hope to make new ones in this project. I am a hard worker, so, don't worry, I will get all of my parts done on time. Other than that, I am excited and looking forward to working on this project…

Hi there :)

Hola, my name is Emily. I'm a freshman at AAHS. I think the beach is the greatest place in the world. Or basically any place with sunshine, water, and wind (I like sailing). Certain shades of yellow make me smile, and I'm in love with my iPod, particularly when it plays British bands. Like Muse. Or Kpop. Don't know it? Google it.

Mi madre's a computer teacher, but that doesn't seem to help me much. I'm still pretty slow when it comes to technology. Don't get me wrong,…

A Little Something From Me

Hey, hi , and hello!

My name is Minseo and I am a "froshie" at AAHS. Don't worry if you can't pronounce my name. It's all good. Anyway, I love spending my time with my friends to the mall, movies, school, you name it! I love to chat on Facebook, email, etc. My life basically revolves around music as well. There's nothing in particular that I really love actually. Just as long as it's good, I listen to it. I love to sleep and eat too! Don't you think so too? I think it's really…

About me

I guess I actually have to write an about me now... I'm not the overzealous type when it comes to work, but I do what needs to be done. I like to hang around with friends or play some sort of instrument, whether it's piano, guitar, or drums.
