The Dream Act “would give students who grew up in the United States a chance to contribute to our country’s well-being by serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or pursuing a higher education.” (183)

Floyd discusses that “Many of the students who would be affected by the Dream Act were brought to America as young children and have spent the majority of their lives within the United States. They have learned to assimilate, consider themselves to be a part of the American culture, and are often fluent in English as well as their native language. Unfortunately, some of these students are not even aware of the fact that they are undocumented until they try to get a driver’s license, try to get state identification, or try to attend college.” (185) The author states that some students have already blended in America culture, and there is no difference between them and America citizens except the documentation.

  1. Solange posed for the picture; the feather on her antique hat framing her face. She found the waist and collar of the dress a little confining.
  2. Before Benjamin applied for a job at Datacorp, he researched the company at the library. He wanted to be well prepared for the interview.
  3. Waiting for the tour bus, the family shivered on the windy corner. They had expected warmer weather on their summer vacation.
  4. Leland’s motorcycle is his prized possession, but he had to sell it to pay his college tuition.
  5. Olivia took lessons, because she had never been surfing. She felt ready to tackle the waves.
  6. Paolo had thinning hair, glasses, and stooped shoulders; everyone thinks he is a  librarian, but he is a meteorologist at an Antarctic research station.
  7. Toni gives her son a generous allowance and does not expect any help around the house from him; Toni’s brother expects his children to do chores if they want to spend money.
  8. Dark clouds gather overhead, while trees toss in the wind; rain does not fall.
  9. Tai wanted to prove her trustworthiness to her parents; she made it her responsibility to take her younger brother and sister to school.
  10. Using a sharp jerk of his wrist, Simon flipped the pancake in the skillet; his uncle taught him this trick when Siman was a child.

My Chinses full name is ZhuZhennan. Zhu is my family name, and Zhennan is my first name. In Chinese, Zhen means bracing up and Nan is the name of a kind of strong tree in Chinese. My parents want me to have a positive attitude and being strong like a Nan tree.

When I was a child, I was embarrassed by my family name Zhu. In Chinese, it is pronounced same as the animal pig. Many of my classmates liked to make fun of it by writing my name as the Chinese word pig. However, I began to pay no attention to that after primary school.
I think the name is just like your code, but it does not define you. Our parents named us with their huge expectations on us. After all, what shows who you are is what you think and what you do, so be proud of your name and live your life.

In China, the full moon has a special meaning of reunion (family reunion). There is a saying in Chinese that marriages are prepared on the moon by a god named Yue Lao. People said that Yue Lao has a record book with the names of all the people in the world and he would decide who would you fall in love with by his judgment. He is like the Cupid in China. There is another reason why the full moon is so important in Chinese which is Moon Festival. Everybody goes up high mountains see the moon and washing all the best with their family.

I began to learn English at third grade. The way we study is all about translation. For example, I learn the English word Apple equal to Chinese word Pingguo, not the red spherical fruit. Therefore, every time I saw Apple I thought about the Chinese word Pingguo, then I translated to English.

The photo is obviously photoshopped to us. You do not even need to look at the picture underneath where you can clearly see the poorly edited photo. In the first picture, you can even notice that there is a “white box” circling around the plane, showing that this is just an image of a plane and not a real one. Nikon posted this on their FB page and was ridiculed by other FB users that noticed this quickly. If you’re going to manipulate a photo, you need to at least hide the evidence. And for the last two photos, we feel like they were just making fun of the original one.  http://pth.izitru.com/2016_01_00.html
