This is a rare event that might happen in the Year 2012 in which the magnetic north and south would flip causing compasses to switch which way they point but would only take getting used to and not end the world.
Another theory is that the sun would pass between us and the center of the Milky Way which would cut off 'energy' that we get from there but this is invalid because it wouldn't affect Earth in any way. The reason I mentioned this is because this could explain why the mayans abruptly end their calendar. The mayan calendar might mark the end of a cycle and that cycle might be one that begins and ends with the sun passing between the Milky Way!
All in all, the world is not going to end.

Hello I'm Mariana Garcia and I am currently in the Blog Enrichment. I am a freshmen, love music, dancing, challenges, and reading. My favorite color is red and I also play in a mariachi. My dream is to go Stanford University where I will study to become a Doctor when I’m older. LPS-Richmond is a great school and would most definitely take me to college! I am looking forward on graduating and having a successful career.

Last week I sat down with Mr. Thapar to speak with him about his experience here at LPS as a new teacher in our community.
“I am enjoying LPS a lot, I really love how hard all the students work. I think all the teachers are really dedicated to helping the students be successful. I think the administration is all over the place, you got a really good culture, you see Mr.K smiling because I rubbed it in that the 49ers beat the eagles, it’s a fun place and a place where we work hard”.
What did you do before you came to LPS and how was that working for you? Did you like it?
“Last year I taught 8th grade and a middle school/elementary school in San Jose. I taught every single subject so I taught English, Math, Science and Social Studies. I also taught an elective, ran speech and debate club. I liked it a lot but I also like that I only have two subjects to teach now and I get to focus on them a little bit more, and I get to interact with more students. So I liked it last year but I like it here better."
What are your goals for your students this year and how do you plan to achieve them?
“I want my students to grow in history as much as much as possible or as much as they can do and that will do it. so getting the best effort out of them. Hopefully driving them towards 80% mastery on their exams and being proficient or advanced on their CST which is only about 1 in 5 or 1 in 10 of the students of California"
What are some of your personal interests or hobbies while you're not teaching or while you're not at school?
“While I'm not at school, I watch a lot of t.v, so I watch a lot of 24, The Office, Parks and Recreation, the daily show and my favorite show is Modern Family. I also play a lot of basketball, and lately I've been going for a lot of runs with Mr. Hester, sometimes we do sprints and so that pretty much occupies my time, that and planning. Also, just adding in, I hope that when prom comes around, at a certain point, everyone on the dance floor just breaks out into “The John Locke”. You asked me about my goals for the year and I think that more than anything else, that is my goal for the year"

Today I will be writing about my summer experience. Over the summer, I went to Stanford for 5 weeks as part of a program called SMASH ( Summer Math And Science Honors academy) and learned about stuff that I would be learning about this year but went more in depth. That's great and all but the best part was the fact that I got to live in a dorm and choose what to do with my free time whether it be a party or do homework. I strongly suggest you apply for this program if you can because I almost didn't and if that happened, I would have missed out on one of the best experiences of my life so far.
The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (The "DREAM Act") would provide certain illegal alien students the opportunity to earn conditional permanent residency.
According to The Dream Act, part one . Students could get permanent residency if they were brought to this country at a young age (under 15) and have a clean record. Lastly, they would have to have a GED . Part two states that illegal immigrants could receive financial aid from the state to attend a university.
"The California Dream Act, the second and final half of which was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on Saturday, October 8, will allow illegal immigrants to receive financial aid from the state for the cause of universal study." By John Stephens .
