These websites are suppose to be fun for teenagers. It gives them a chance to communicate with with friends and other peoples.Lately what Myspace and YouTube users have been doing is that they are doing a lot of illegal activities . Teenagers have been doing a lot of cruel things to others teens and they like to brag about it so they tape record and put it on Myspace. These kids feel famous and important when other teens see this bad cruel videos. I read this article Web networking photos come back to bite defendants . This article is about this young boy and young girl that got charged in a drunken driving crash that seriously injured a woman. The defendant denied drinking but when the prosecutor was searching for evidence he found pictures of the guy in the Internet drinking and joking about alcohol. These pictures led to his sentencing of 2yrs in prison. There's this other article

Mark Twain wrote an article "Advice to Youth" in 1882. This article is very satirical because he gives bad advice to the youth. Instead of him giving us the youth of good examples or a good advice on being a better person he makes fun of us and he encourage us negatively. In his first advice he tells us that we should "always obey our parents, when they are present". I don't believe that this is a very good advice because we should always obey are parents even if they are or aren't around. What Mark Twain is doing is that he's being very satirical. He knows that he has no control over the youth. HE is telling us the wrong thing maybe if we are smart enough will know right from wrong. If kids are raised correctly with a good example parents won't need to tell them what to do. The youth now an days don't like to be told what to do. Most likely if you tell them to do the wrong thing they might just do the right thing. It's part of human nature. Mark Twain made fun of the youth but in a very decent way that wasn't cruel. In my opinion this article is not a good article for the youth to read it because they might get wrong idea. Most kids my use his advice and then use him as an excuse. But this article is a very good example of satire.
I learned today that if I am looking for the best example of satire I should watch Saturday Night Live.
In the website The Onion they have an article named Al Gore Places Infant Son In Rocket To Escape Dying Planet. In this article Americans are using satire to make fun of Al Gore's speech.

I have lied several times before. I have lie to get out of trouble a couple of times. I have also lied about myself sometimes to impress other people. One time when I was in the 9Th grade I lied to my mother about going to school and I got in a lot of trouble with her because the school called to tell her that I was absent.
This is an example of me lying.
This cartoon illustates me talking to my boyfriend.
I have lied to my boyfriend before about certain stuff I have done. Their are certain things that I dont need him to know. Lying is part of human nature. There can be certain things that people don't want other people knowing.
This is an example of police breaking in someones house because they were rumors that this people were doing something illegal. Rumors are mostly lies most of this rumors could really get someone in trouble.

Another Alternative energy resources is Hydroelectricity. This is a form of hydro power, and is the most widely used form of renewable energy. It produces no waste, and does not produce carbon dioxide. This method stores energy in the form of water. It pumped from a lower elevation reservoir to a higher elevation

Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. was born March 31,1948 He's an American environmental activist, an an author, former politician(senator), and former journalist. He served as the forty-fifth Vice President of the United States from 1993 to 2001 under president Bill Clinton. He also ran for president and lost to George W. Bush.
On July 17 ,2008 Al Gore gave a speech on how our nation is in danger and nobody is doing anything about it. "Our weather has been changing a lot and we have a big crisis on our hands." The United States keeps borrowing money from China to buy oil from the Persian Gulf to burn it in ways that destroys the planet. Every bit of this has to change. According to Gore "the solution to our problem is to stop our reliance on carbon-based fuels". Carbon-based fuels products are plastic bottles ,cars, plastics bags, computers and many more things. Al Gore believes we could use fuels that are not expensive, don't cause pollution and are abundantly available right here at home. These fuels are solar power, wind power and geothermal power. Scientists have confirmed that enough solar energy falls on the surface of the earth and enough wind power blows through the Midwest corridor every day to also meet percent of US electricity demand. We can start right now using solar power, wind power and geothermal power to make electricity for our homes and businesses.
I believe this is a very big challenge and that maybe 10 years is not enough. I believe that if we don't do nothing to help our nation get better something very bad can happen to our earth.
There's not much I can do myself to meet this challenge but I will definitely talk about this topic with my family , friends and teachers. I am going to try to encourage everyone to listen to Al Gore speech and maybe together we can do something to help our nation before is to late.
Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form, such as electricity, using wind turbines. Most wind power is generated in the form of electricity. Large scale wind farms are connected to electrical grids. Individual turbines can provide electricity to isolated locations. In windmills, wind energy is used directly as mechanical energy for pumping water or grinding grain.
Solar power is a powerful source of energy. The sunlight that shines on the Earth in just one hour could meet world energy demand for an entire year.The sun has produced energy for billions of years. Solar energy is the sun’s rays (solar radiation) that reach the earth.Solar energy can be converted into other forms of energy, such as heat and electricity.
Geothermal power is energy generated by heat stored beneath the Earth's surface or the collection of absorbed heat in the atmosphere and oceans.The largest group of geothermal power plants in the world is located in The Geysers, a geothermal field in California As of 2007, geothermal power supplies less than 1% of the world's energy.
