Why Charles Darwin deserves a monument in Washington D.C
Naturalist Charles Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, England, on February 12, 1809. Charles Darwin should have a monument, because he has discovered the theory of evolution by Following the inception of Charles Darwin's theory of natural selection in 1838, the development of Darwin's theory to explain the "mystery of mysteries" of how new species originated was his "prime hobby" in the background to his main occupation of publishing the scientific results of the Beagle voyage. The beagle voyage means that he sailed the HMS Beagle. The closest known relative of the Galapagos finches. They were first collected by Charles Darwin on the Galapagos Islands during the second voyage of the Beagle. Apart from the Cocos finch, which is from Cocos Island, the others are found only on the Galapagos Islands.
I'm going to write about "The Juice is worth the squeeze" because, I know what to write. Say if your playing a sport and you put your whole off season into that one sport it will get u better in the other sport too. so once you would put effort in the season, and trying your hardest in the off season would have been worth the fight through the off season.

The only reason why people hack phones is usually murderers or they will do something to you, unless they are the FBI. The FBI should and should not be able to hack Iphones.
According to Newsela “The FBI dropped its lawsuit against Apple after it found another way to unlock the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino, California, gunmen”. FBI hacking phones would be good if something happened to the owner, but if you hack their phone when they get it it’s like they are being stalked every single day. If the FBI was to hack every single phone in one state or all of the 50 States, your life would be miserable for everybody because, they wouldn’t have any private on their phone, every time they would get on it someone would be watching them.
According to Newsela “However, the FBI dropping its lawsuit against Apple does not mean Tim Cook acted justly. Cook is Apple's chief executive officer, or CEO. Cook refused to unlock Farook's phone without the password to help the FBI investigate the shootings”. Hacking a person’s phone can sometimes be good if they are doing something very bad or like if the FBI needs to find them, they try to hack their phone and track them down. Hacking a person’s phone can sometimes be bad because they didn’t do anything wrong and they probably don’t wanna be getting stalked. According to Newsela PRO - “Yes, the Fourth Amendment also says the government has a right to search personal property. However, the government can only do this with a search warrant and a very good reason to do so. The Fourth Amendment does not say that anyone else can be forced to aid the government in its searches”. CON - “As for Apple’s Tim Cook, he might want to take a history lesson. He should consider how our nation’s top CEOs responded to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s appeal for help after the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941”.
There is only one good reason to let the FBI hack your phones, is that if there is a Muslim and he has an IPhone, you could hack it then. If there is a Civilian that is normal he/she goes to work every single day and hasn’t done nothing bad, it is not good just to hack a phone. According to Newsela “This request came from our government. What if it was the Chinese government that wanted Apple to unlock the phones of Chinese citizens accused of breaking the law? Would Americans — and the American FBI — support attempts by foreign governments to force Apple to break into people’s phones? If the court case had gone forward and the FBI had won, it would have set a new standard for requests of this sort.”
The FBI should and should not be able to hack IPhones. I’m with both Pro/Con because I want to hack phones when necessary, but not hack phones when it’s not necessary.

"Some morning you wake up and think, gee I look handsome today. Other days I think what am I doing in these movies? I wanna go back to Ireland and drive a forklift" - Liam Neeson. Liam Neeson is basically saying that he really doesn’t like being famous as much as some people do. I would say no if I had a choice to either become famous or be a normal person who likes what they do.
If you want to be a Celebrity and wanna have friends then make sure you know them really good as a friend, because you're famous and all make sure they like you just the way you are. But sometimes people wish they could be famous just for the attention, or maybe the money, or just likes being famous who knows what some people want in life. I wouldn't like to be famous because of all the crowds and the fans wanting to take pictures and sign autographs for kids. Most of the celebrities don't like to be around fans when they're by themselves.
I think it wouldn't be that fun being famous because other people would be bossing you around, making fun of you, and telling you that you shouldn't be famous, and making yourself look like a fool in front of millions of people. Some people love to be famous just by getting money and performing on a stage in front of millions of people every night, but some like it just for the fans and the attention.
When I was searching the web for some facts about not really liking to be famous and what took my eye was a very famous guy that is in a lot of movies was Liam Neeson and one of his quotes was "Some morning you wake up and think, gee I look handsome today. Other days I think what am I doing in these movies? I wanna go back to Ireland and drive a forklift". It took my eye because you have this very famous actor saying that he kinda wishes he never was famous instead he wishes he could've went back to Ireland and get back on a Forklift. Liam Neeson is like a guy who sometimes likes to be famous on the off days but until the day comes when you're about to get showed on TV it’s like you say to yourself “why did i even do this”.
I would take a grocery store job instead of being famous because, at least you won’t have to sign autographs every 5 minutes or less, and get your picture taken when you give them an autograph, so if I had a choice to be famous or not to be famous i would say NO I don’t wanna be famous.
My Christmas Break went really fast, probably the fastest it's ever went past,because usaully I just sit around do nothing but not this year I had Basketball practice in the mornings, then when I would get home I would have to help my dad side the old barn, and work on the addition for the old barn also.
On Christmas Eve we would always go over to my Grandma and Grandpa McCormack's house for dinner and such tghen after we would go to my Grandma and Grandpa Smith's house to talk because they would have alot of company over. Then on Christmas morning it wasn't the same because my second oldest brother Marcus had to work 6am to 10am but we still opened presents and i got what i've always wanted ever since I was 10 was a Craftman toolbox, and I got it. That night we had family over at our place to eat and play poker and texas hold em and watch the Cavs beat the Warriors.
So new years came flying around corner, and we sometimes don't do anything special so I had a friend over and we partied all night "not really". So then the next day was coming around and it was 2017, and my mom wanted to go out to eat for my dads B-Day which a couple days back and we didn't have enough time to out to eat that day. We went to Red Lobster and it was delicious, so that kinda raps up my Christmas Break 2016 - 2017.
Hi, my name is Jackson McCormack, and I’m 14 years old. I want my career job to be a Diesel Mechanic, because I’ve been around so many engines it’s not even funny, and my older brother works over at Haines Construction in Norwalk and he likes it, and I learn a lot from him If I can’t go and do that job I might try to be a carpenter, because my dad does it buys houses and fixes them up and then sells them again doubled the price he bought it for, so I don’t know what I want to be yet, but I might be a diesel mechanic. I will become a Diesel Mechanic, and get my skills from EHOVE.
When I’m a Diesel Mechanic I want to start out slow until I get more experience my first job as a Diesel Mechanic because, I’m going to go to EHOVE to get more experience for Diesel Mechanic, so I can start making about $18 an hour. While I’m at EHOVE I will go over there for one whole year and then I’ll take a class that provides me to either stay at EHOVE and learn stuff that they would give me or, go to my job and EHOVE will stay intact with my job so they know i’m still learning. So I might take the 2nd choice just so I can make money and still learn at the same time plus I won’t have to drive all the way over to Sandusky every day I can just go to Norwalk instead.
I’ve always wanted to be a Mechanic that deals with engines. Ever since I was born my dad and brothers would always be working on a type of engine, and it didn’t have to be an engine that goes in a vehicle. They would always be working on 4-wheelers, pto shafts, and lots of farm equipment. What I am saying is that I was born to be a diesel mechanic or a farmer, not a doctor or a businessman. I’m built to do stuff with my hands and that’s it, because I don’t like the city I like the country so I wouldn’t want to go to another city to a businessman or a doctor and be on the road all the time, I like staying in the same job sight and in the same shop.
Carpenter’s construct and repair building frameworks and structure, such as stairways, doorframes, partitions, rafters, and building a house made from wood and other materials. They also may install kitchen cabinets, siding, and drywall. The reason of a carpenter being a backup plan is because if you can’t fix anything you would have to pay for someone to come do it for you, but if you know stuff about carpentry you can do it yourself and save up a lot of money. People say my dad is best carpenter in Greenwich when it comes with building house and fixing them, because his dad was a farmer but he knew a lot of stuff about carpentry too. My dad when he was about 19 or 20 he went to a school about Carpentry, and he got better at the time and now he is really really good.
If I can’t follow my dreams and be a Diesel Mechanic, or I can’t be a carpenter and do stuff what I already know.
When I grow up to a mature adult I want to be a Diesel Mechanic for Haines Construction in Norwalk, because, my brother Chandler is a Diesel Mechanic at Haines Construction, and he is getting payed a decent amount of money for a 19 year old. I want to be a Diesel Mechanic, because if you work on a dairy farm or just a farm you will know how to fix Diesel tractors and such. I thought career day would've been easier than it was because, people were saying that they will treat you like you would get treated in real life. They did but, they didn't make you pay for taxes.
I learned that you can't go out and start spending stuff or you will lose money fast, and you can't buy brand named food every time you go shopping you have to work with what you wanna save and, just get the cheapest brand of food. I have more appreciation for my parents now because I remember when I wanted a lot of toys but, my mom and dad wouldn't let me so i would ask them why and they said you don't need it but, I bet they didn't let me get it because they didn't want to spend there money on something like that.
America should vote for Donald Trump, to make America great again.
Donald Trump wants to make the United states a better country. According to Donald Trump"I'm a tremendous believer in education. But education has to be at a local level. We are rated 28 in the world--the United States!--think of it!--28 in the world--and, frankly, we spend far more per pupil than any other country in the world by far, it's not even a close second.” If you put Hillary in office she is going to have the prices of everything go up, such as gas prices, taxes, and more. Hillary Clinton wants to take down all of the coal businesses, so that will cause us to have less jobs for the people that work there, so it will make the economy worse. She has also lied about all of the private emails, and she is wanting to have all the isis and other foreign people over to our country even though there mostly terrorists.
Hillary Clinton wants to send money over to Iraq!! Why ?According to Donald Trump “Well, I want to take away their wealth. And, as you know, for years I've been saying, 'Don't go into Iraq.' They went into Iraq. They destabilized the Middle East. It was a big mistake. Okay, now we're there”. According to The O'reilly Factor “Clinton lied when she claimed never to have received classified information on her private, unsecured email system. In fact, there was far too much classified information on her server to allow that subterfuge to work”. If Trump becomes president she will be put in jail for what she has done.
Hillary Clinton said she wants to take away all the gun violence. According to Jeb Bush: “We don't need to add new rules. We need to focus on what the bigger issue is. We should focus on is the violence in our communities, and the other issue is mental health. Why not begin to deal with the process of mental health issues so that people that are spiraling out of control because of mental health challenges don't have access to guns.” According to Donald Trump: “What Jeb said is absolutely correct. We have a huge mental health problem in this country. We're closing hospitals, we're closing wards, we're closing so many because the states want to save money. We have to get back into looking at what's causing it. The guns don't pull the trigger. It's the people that pull the trigger and we have to find out what is going on. You get the Congress. You get the Senate. You get together. You do legislation.”
“Hillary wants to make new rules, but we don’t need new rules. Hillary wants to take our guns away, she isn’t focusing on the violence in our communities, and mental health, but she just wants to talk about what makes her look good she doesn’t even care about the little stuff” According to The O'reilly factor.
