Branches Of Government

If I were a Prime Minister for a day....
If I had the opportunity to be New Zealand’s Prime Minister for a day, little things will be equaled with the big things. I would make the payment rates increase to its suitable. So that families can be happy with their income to pay their bills, and other priorities. Making it easy for the families to make their right choices. Another change that will occur would be the poverty. I will no longer allow the poor to become homeless and live on the streets, I’ll create departments for them to live in with no payments received or asked. I will do my best to represent NZ’s thoughts and concerns appear righteously. Hoping that everything will go well and that less complaints will show up. But this is only if I’m a Prime Minister for a day:)

Image result for jacinda ardernToday in social studies, we had a task that contains latest article government's. As you can see I already have the article link below... as well as a paragraph that I wrote about what I read and what I think about the article. I also added a bit of my opinions on what I think about the new leader, Jacinda Ardern.  

Start: In the latest article that I read is about Labour's new leader Jacinda Ardern. The Newshub Reid Research poll was taken during the week after she replace Andrew Little as leader. The results of the latest poll with Jacinda Ardern the new leader of labour has the party up 9 points to 33 percent. Which had National down to 44 percent which is the lowest registered in this poll in the past 10 years. The rise of Labour’s registers was even higher than NZ First’s and Greens parties. NZ First’s down more than 3 points to 9%, with Greens down more than 4 points to 8%. With the Prime Minister's preferring stakes Bill English up to 27.7% where's Miss Ardern was up more than 17% to 26.3%. NZ First leader Winston Peters down at 10%. The poll surveyed a 1000 people and had a margin of error 3.1%. I think that the rise of Labour with Jacinda Ardern’s  register is a good thing. The rise of this labour will lead to path of Labour wining and also having NZ’s new Prime Minister - the 2nd woman prime minister. I want NZ to have a female prime minister so we can have new choices from different thoughts.

Food Groups

Last week while we were at our netball tournament, our health class learnt about fruit groups. We had to create a google drawing with 3 food groups - "Carbohydrates, Fats and Protein". Under each of these groups, we were to put 5 different kinds of food that suits the heading. After we created this google drawing, we had to write a paragraph between the differences of the food groups and the food under them.
As you can on the far left side is Carbohydrates. It has food that contains grain, fruits, and sweet potatoes. I forgot to put in some sweets like lollies and chocolate. Carbohydrate is all about food that is sweet. This one of the food groups that provides so much energy.
The middle group is Fats. As you can see under the name "fats" are pictures of fruit that pretty much holds a lot of fat. Avocados hold a lot of fat but it depends on the size of the fruit. Wheres coconut oil holds a lot of fat at about 100g. But the foods that I haven't put down was Mcdonald's and KFC.  These foods have chickens and other meat, but the reason why these will go under fat is because the meats are deep fried. Using a lot of oils. Fats can be useful at times to bodies as treats of performance on the field/court :)
Lastly protein. Some of the protein food/drinks are not grown from trees or made. Proteins are food that are mainly provided by living animals. For example milk from cows, eggs from chickens. But the best example from protein that I havn't got down is meat. Meat is obviously from animals. Eating this will build so much strength and energy in our bodies. Other food that can contain protein are nuts and spinach.
Well this is what I have learnt about food groups so far and I really enjoyed it. I now know what to eat and what not to eat at times I need it. I also know what to eat before I play on the courts, what will give me energy to play hard on the courts.
