  1. I honestly don't know that much about it as I couldn't really believe it was real at first. The only stable argument I could find against the agreement is that there is a misconception that the Earth's global warming is caused by humans. To that I say even if climate change isn't real and is a hoax made up the government (or whoever they are blaming these days) I think that searching for renewable energy sources and decreasing our dependence on fossil fuels is a good thing. Global warming aside everyone knows that having a lot of pollution in the environment is a bad thing. Take Beijing for example. There was a dude there who vacuumed the air for 100 days and made a brick (http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/08/asia/china-pollution-artist/index.html) and everyone has seem the pictures where people are wearing masks to protect themselves from the smog. So there are obvious benefits to decreasing the pollution in our atmosphere. If anyone has any other arguments against the agreement I would be glad to hear them as I just don't understand why Donald Trump would think it is such a bad thing to continue staying in the agreement.
  2. This isn't as horrible as it is funny. Okay, so we have a bunch of "exam teachers" that basically watch people take exams to make sure they aren't cheating or anything because our school is large enough for that type of expenditure. We have a grand total of three and they watch over exams depending on what day of the week it is. Anyway I always sign up for the Tuesday/Thursday exam taking slots because I designate Monday and Friday as homework days for the heavy assignments like the EE, IAs, etc. and Wednesday I have CAS hours, private lessons, and other miscellaneous things. The lady who always watches us sit our exams is like this really old, frumpy lady with a walker who wears her weight in pearls (we all know the type). To her credit she is pretty chill but the lady is obsessed with romance novels. You know, the novels you can get at like Walmart for like two bucks a pop with half naked cowboys on the cover. She brings like 5 of them to every exam and just plunks them on her desk, not even caring that we can clearly see the covers. Half way through the year she stopped bring the novels to school and started reading hard cover books with titles like 101 Ways to Teach More Effectively. No one knew why but the consensus was that she got told on by one of the students that probably felt like the covers distracted them. It wasn't that big of a deal until we were taking our midterms and in comes the principal with his eleven year old son. (The principal's wife died a few years back of cancer and he likes to bring his son with him to school every so often. No one minds really 'cause the son is really nice). So they sit down to see if we seem to be struggling with the material or anything. The son get bored after about a hour and just takes a book of the teacher's desk. She doesn't notice because she looks engrossed in her The Salem Witch Trials book or whatever she was reading. After like twenty minutes had gone by the son starts giggling and tugs on the principals shoulder to show him the book. The principal goes red in the face after 30 seconds of reading and leaves the room. The next day I learned that instead of reading what we thought she was reading, the exam lady was actually reading Fifty Shades of Gray/Fifty shades Darker and just putting the covers on her books to look like they were appropriate books. Long story short she isn't allowed to read in the exam room any more.
  3. My username just came from the fact that my middle name is Elaine, however on many of the cites I frequent it is often taken. I got the idea to substitute numbers for letters after I read Little Brother. The main character in the book goes by the alias of w1n5t0n (at the start of the book) and then later M1ck3y after that alias had been compromised. As this doesn't work very well with my first name, I tried it with my middle and it worked!
  4. What is your favorite relatable IB video? Mine is:
  5. You know you're an IB student when you have legitimately found a way to take notes on your graphing calculator.
  6. advice

    So I have noticed a lot of threads are like, "here is some things that I wish that I knew in the IB" and then they proceed to tell you to not procrastinate, and to get enough sleep, and to get organized, etc. We all know you are going to procrastinate and do all those things no matter what we say. This thread is for those times when things get down to the wire and you need to do something really important. So post any, lets say, unconventional, life hacks for everyone else out there. These are mine: 1) They sell legit caffeine pills, so if you need energy and coffee isn't doing it for you any more, try some of those. 2) If you need to study and happen to have access to a printer, a laminator, a printer, and some clear tape, you can laminate a study sheet, stick it in a sheet protector and tape the sheet protector shut to study in the shower/bath tub. If you have some expo markers too you can write stuff on it and erase it later. 3) If you put an app called NoteFlio on your graphing calculator (I have a TI-84 Plus, I don't know if they have it for other calculator types) you can make notes to yourself on your calculator in class. It's really hard to type on it though, as you are always having to hit alpha and then a key so you can't go very fast. So those are mine. Post yours below.
