Digital Footprint

So this is my Digital Footprint. In my footprint there is apps and websites that I have been on for the last 2 days. The smaller the size the less I used the app throughout those 2 days, and the bigger the size the more I use the app.

What we are trying to learn about is all of the apps we go on isn't private. If you have a private instagram it isn't private because there are those few people that know how to see you so called private instagram without even following you.

A digital footprint is the information about a person or people that exists on the "internet" as a result of their online activities. And leaving behind your print of being on those apps/websites.

So today I have created a presentation explaining Hāuora. Hāuora is a Maori Model of Health

Fono Fale - Questions and Answers

So today I have created a document explaining the answers to questions about the Fono Fale. 

What is the fono fale?

The fono fale is a model which was created by Fuimaono Karl Pulotu-Endermann as a Pacific Island model of health. The concept of the Samoan Fale or house is used as an image to describe a Pacific view of important factors in healthy development.

What is different about it  compared to Hāuora?

The fono fale is a model representing the Pacific Island Model of Health - This is the Samoan version of Health , while the Hāuora is based on a Marae/whare representing the Maori Model of Health - This is the Maori version of Health.

What is similar compared to Hāuora?

Fono Fale and Hāuora are both based on a Model of Health but are both represented by different culture - Hāuora (Maori) - Fono Fale (Samoan).

Do you like the Hāuora model or the Fono Fale model more? Why?

To me personally, I will have to like the Hāuora more because I know more about this Model, I understand this Model as well, while I don’t have a clue about the Fono Fale model, I haven’t learnt about this Model either but I would like to learn about it in the future.

Black Gold, Hair extensions - Reflection

Today, I have been reading an article about Black,Gold hair extensions. I find this article quick interesting and I would like to learn/more about this article.

WALA: events that happen around the world.

I find this article very interesting how women are getting there hair cut/shaved off and sold to people or put in salons as hair extensions. I also find this article interesting that lots of the women they have been mentioned  in the article don't really care about having extensions glued/taped/woven into there roots, But they know about some of the consequences they have toward having them, And knowing that they are wearing someone else's hair but they just don't think about it like they don't think about the cow when they eat a burger. At is all the same thing. But also I find this very upsetting that there are women and girls that are getting there hair cut off, being focused by there parents so they are able to get payed, yes they need the money but cutting of your children's hair isn't a very nice thing to do to anyone especially hen they don't want there hair cut, when theses girls look in the mirror and see that they don't have the hair they you'd to have they cry and it isn't fair for anyone to go through things like this.

In all story, texts and article there is a purpose, and for every purpose there is a reason.
I think the authors purpose of this article is to let women know that there are things in the world that can make you happy, physically and emotional. There are things that can make you feel normal and make you feel like no one is going to judge you for what you are, what you wear, the types of things you eat, the type of people you hang out with, because when you really think about it the only reason people are selling hair, and people are buying the hair for extensions is to make them feel good and if they want and have hair extensions you should judge them for there chooses they are feeling comfortable in there own skin and if they are wanting to get surgery or get hair extensions let them  get it, just encourage them and be on there side.
But I also think the authors purpose of this article is to let people know that it isn't fair for young girls to get there her cut/shaved of under the focus of there parents, it isn't fair they are being focused to do something they don't want to do.

In China there is high demands towards getting your cut/shaved and sold to people or salons, but why do I think there is such high demands for hair and that is what I will be  telling you today. I think there are such high demands for hair because hair can be very valuable if you know a lot about hair.
For example: virgin hair, that which has never been dyed, straightened or blow-wave, is so valuable it's called Black Gold and because of this when buying the hair as extensions it will been very expensive. Most hair extensions cost up to $700 to $2000. The longer and thicker, the better and higher the price. I also think there is is such high demands because there a different types of hair and different hair cost different price but the prices that are set to be sold as isn't a cheap cost. The regular cost of hair is $700 to &2000 but the more valuable hair can cost up to $2000 to $7000 if you are trying to get extra volume and added length.

Society would be different if it wasn't in demand, people would usually say that society is unrealistic but it's only because people don't understand that enormous consequences they would have our society. If that doesn't make people change there minds, something new with take over or come in. But if society were to change because it wasn't in demand, everything will changed. People will understand things less. People will know less about the society and the world. If Society were to change because it wasn't in demand, life would be poorly, people will learn things poorly. So many find society as unrealistic and fake because they aren't understanding the demands, rules and information that comes with it, and because of the information rules, and demands that come with it some people are able to understand the information that is given and it will just make society a better place for everyone.

Te Reo - Reflection

Today I have created a document explaining some questions I will have to answer. So what I am reflecting on is a serves that I have filled out about using Te Reo Maori in schools and at home.

WALT: create a DLO, showing some questions and answers towards a serves that we filled ut about speaking Te Reo Maori at school, at home and in the community.

What is Te Reo? And what does it mean in your own words.

Te Reo is a language that is mostly spoken in New Zealand, Which is the Maori Language. Because a lot of people don't speak Maori much it will soon die. But that is why parents and teachers are starting to teach and encourage their children and other people to learn and teach them so that the Maori would exist for another 100 years... In my own words Te Reo means the language. The language that is spoke by different people, by different cultures but most likely to be spoken by Maori people. The official language of New Zealand is Te Reo Maori, New Zealand Sign Language and English.

What percentage of people speak Maori now vs how many people spoke Maori 100 years ago?

In 2016, the percent of people that speak Maori lost about 80% of the language has been lost and the percentage of people that spoke Maori 100 years ago was 95%. Towards theses percentages there has been a very big change and not a lot of people speak it that much. Thats is why people should start teach their kids the language or maybe in 100 years the language will no longer exist and there might be a new language that will take over the Maori Language.

How many languages die every week? And how does this happen?

From research and several websites that I have looked at says that One Language dies every 14 days. And there is roughly 7,000 languages spoken in the world. A percent of the time the languages is when the last language speaker dies, 30% of the languages in the world are currently losing speakers or are more seriously endangered. Most of theses have never been recorded and so would be lost forever. And about 50% of the languages spoken today will disappear in the next 100 years. Some even argue that up to 90% of today's languages will have disappeared by 2115.

What are the 3 official languages in New Zealand and in the World?

The 3 official languages that are spoken in New Zealand is English, New Zealand Sign Language and Te Reo Maori. Theses languages have been official for a very long time. English and Maori. But there has been several changes over the years.

Why is speaking Maori important?

Speaking Maori is important because it is a language that is spoken by a lot of people and has been around for over 30,000 years. Having the language still exist means so much to the people who are Maori, Because the Maori culture is in there blood and deserve to keep the language in the country they live in.          

In the future, what do you believe will be the main languages spoken around the world. Why do you think that?

I think the main languages that will be spoken around the world will be probably still English, Asian and maybe Indian. I don't really have a reason to why I think this. Maybe because there is a lot of people that speak theses languages and just because you're not the culture doesn't mean you can learn a new language. Because in the world a lot of countries and people speak english but don't you think it will be cool if you were able to speak different language that is kinda difficult to learn.
