Now you fellow readers might be wondering what I am talking about today, and I want to tell you Alfa Romeo isn’t a kitchen supply company it is a car manufacturing company. I chose to write this post about Alfa Romeo  instead of Ferrari is because I believe they are the under dog and isn’t getting the recognition they should get.  and they where creating automobiles since 1908 and are still not very well known. Alfa is an abbreviation that stands for Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili and google translate doesn’t know what it means but I know the bit at the end stands for automobile but the rest I don’t know about.  Alfa Romeo was one of the original grand Prix racers the sign at the top of my blog is a p3 it has the Ferrari logo because they where bought out by Ferrari and then bought by Fiat along with practically every other car company. The only problem with ALFA Romeo is they post a lot of concept cars but they are rarely carried through, but that is my only problem with them other wise there a fabulous car company.

Thank you for reading and checking in on my blog.

Where I Live

Comox BC is the best place to live in ( in Canada at least) and there is no denying it.  There are hundreds of reasons why Comox is the best, but I think the reason I believe that Comox is great is because it has a relatively small population of only 15000 so that means it’s rarely crowded and  we never get pile ups on highways. We live in a valley, so we live next to the Beaufort Range, Mount Washington and Forbidden Plateau. Mount Washington is close by and is very nice to ski on. Forbidden Plateau, well, is meant to be haunted, but it’s also awesome to sled down and is easy to access. We also are very close to the Pacific Ocean so we can go swimming or fishing quickly.

We are half way up Vancouver Island so it is easy to travel around the Island. We also have been blessed by having a BC ferries located in our little valley, allowing us to save on gas when we want to head for the mainland, making traveling a breeze. I know you’re probably wondering but if the Comox Valley is so great why would you want to ever leave it?Because sometimes it’s awesome  to travel.

But it does have a few problems: it’s a small town but everything is too spread out making getting around a bit of a hassle. It rains a lot and gets very windy and when it snows it only goes up an inch and that’s on a good snow day. But that is the only problem that comes off my head. So I highly recommend checking this place out.

Thanks, viewers, for reading this post about Comox and please comment and take a look at some of my other posts or my classmates blogs.

Stephen Hawking: Black Hole Genius

Learner traits are the traits you show as you learn and I think no one best suits those traits better than Stephen Hawking and his line of work. He expresses these three learner traits and more.

Risk Taking

He had amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which put him into his wheelchair, while still trying to get his theory that black holes emit radiation noticed. He was expected to die in June 2015  and worked all the way through and exceeded that date. He is still alive and well, he just experienced a slight drop in health in 2015.

Confidence

Stephen Hawking is confident because he has made several theories about space time relativities, black holes, and more. He also cannot talk so that would add difficulty to his  lectures about physics and other topics.

Compassion

He spent a week with the Pope discussing how people can blend religion and science into their lives. He runs a charity called the Stephen Hawking Foundation which is trying to put a stop to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Those are the reasons I think Stephen Hawking is the perfect example for this learner traits post. Stephen hawking qualities can influence you by  well inspiring you. He has overcome serious situations and problems even when no one expected him or thought he could. he has pushed through every limitation he had and he is still going strong I believe  if he did all that you can do anything.

Well, that’s it for this post , I will see you on the next post, bye!
