Gameafication

I find it a good idea to gameafy education. First the Grading system. Going up is a brilliant idea, i don’t understand why we are penalized for not knowing something. The point of a class is to gain knowledge on a subject we don’t know. Getting penalized  is disheartening and makes me want to just give up. Rewarding the learners is a better way, i makes us feel more fulfilled. I thought that the point of education was to in-courage the students but i feel that the don’t and if they want they should give this a try.

Reading Assignment 1

After doing the reading, witch took me awhile(due to time constraints) I have been intrigued by the talk of split decisions such as the one talked about in the book about and the  decisions Football players make. My older brother was a football star back in high school and would love  telling how the teams split decisions won the game. I would occasionally play at the park with him and that gave me a better understanding. It is in fact a necessary skill, without it you would be instantly tacked. In football it take quick movements and quicker thoughts due to time constraints within the fast paced plays. But football is not the only time where split second decisions are important. They are crustal within the army meaning life or death. It is also vital in any martial art where you need to dodge  the attacks of the opponent. We in our daily lives don’t think about it but it is a skill that needed  because not all decisions are not just based on rationality but also gut, and  we need a good balance between the two.

Your The Top

Everything i Changed is italicized and underlined.

At words poetic, I’m so pathetic 
That I always have found it best, 
Instead of getting ’em off my chest, 
To let ’em rest unexpressed. 
I hate parading my serenading 
As I’ll probably miss a bar, 
But if this ditty is not so pretty 
At least it’ll tell you 
How great you are. 

You’re the top! 
You’re the Coliseum, 
You’re the top! 
You’re the  Museum. 
You’re a melody from a symphony by Strauss 
You’re a Facebook status, 
A Shakespeare’s sonnet, 
You’re Mickey Mouse. 

You’re the Nile, 
You’re the Tower of Druaga
You’re the mile of the Naked Mile
I’m a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop, 
But if, baby, I’m the bottom you’re the top! 

You’re the top! 
You’re Muhammad ali
You’re the top! 
You’re Napoleon Brandy. 
You’re the purple light 
Of a summer night in Spain, 
You’re the National Gallery 
You’re Garbo’s salary, 
You’re cellophane. 

You’re sublime, 
You’re a turkey dinner, 
You’re the time of the Derby winner. 
I’m a toy balloon that is fated soon to pop 
But if, baby, I’m the bottom, 
You’re the top! 

You’re the top!
You’re an Arrow collar.
You’re the top! 
You’re a Coolidge dollar. 
You’re the Twitter tread 
Of the feet of Fred Astaire, 
You’re a TNT drama, 
You’re Whistler’s mama, 
You’re Camembert. 

You’re a rose, 
You’re Inferno‘s Dante. 
You’re the nose 
On the great Durante. 
I’m just in the way, 
As the French would say, “de trop.” 
But if, baby, I’m the bottom, 
You’re the top!
