Cold Front


Today, I learned that cold front is the leading edge of a cooler mass of air replacing a warmer mass of air.
I will apply my learnings about Cold Front in other lessons related to it and in my daily life cause it affects the weather.
Learning about this phenomenon is important because it can make us aware regarding it so that we’ll always be ready in different weathers.

         On a larger scale, I will share my learnings about this phenomenon to others so that not only me will be aware but also them.

I need to know more about cold front for me to have more information to share and also to be more aware about what’s happening.

LCD Journal Entry #7


Date: July 16-22, 2012
Another week has passed! Time really flies so fast. We’re starting to get really busy because the periodical test will be next week. But still, I don’t forget the things that I should do to help the environment so that it won’t be destroyed. I lessen the use of electricity and water. I never leave the faucet opened and the appliances turned on when nobody is using. I also prefer to walk when I’m going to somewhere near. Those were the things I did this week.

El Niño


          
Today, I learned that El Niño is warming of the surface water of the eastern and central Pacific Ocean, occurring every 4 to 12 years and causing unusual global weather patterns that is also known as Southern Oscillation.
          I will apply my learnings about El Niño in my daily life especially when it is occurring.
            Learning about this phenomenons is important for us to be aware about there because it affects the weather and the weather affects our lives so if we know about it, we can prepare ourselves if it occur.
            On a larger scale, I will share my learning about these phenomenon to others that doesn’t know about it for them to be aware too like me.
            I need to know more about this phenomenon so I’ll get more information that I can use and also I can share to others.

La Niña


Today, I learned that La Niña is the coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon that is the counterpart of El Niño as part of the broader El Niño-Southern Oscillation climate pattern.
I will apply my learnings about La Niña in some lessons that may be related to it and also in my daily life so that I’ll always be ready.
Learning about this phenomenon is important because it affects the weather so it can affect our lives too.
On a larger scale, I will  share my learnings about this phenomenon to others so that not only me will be aware but also them.
I need to know more about La Niña so I’ll  have more information that can give me knowledge and also for me to be more aware with the weather.

Tropical Depression


        Today I learned that Tropical Depression is an organized system of clouds and thunderstorms with a defined, closed surface circulation and maximum sustained winds of less than 34 knots (39mph) and it has no eye and does not typically have the organization or the spiral shape of more powerful storms. 

            I will apply my learnings about Tropical Depression in some lessons that may be related to these two and also to my living cause these two also affects the weather.

            Learning about this phenomenon is important because it can make you more aware about the weather so that you will be always ready if something will happen.

            On a larger scale, I will share my learnings about this phenomenon to others so that they will be aware too in the weather and also so that they will know something about these two.

            I need to know more about Tropical depression so I can know more information about it that will help me and also so I can share more to others.

Monsoon


Today I learned that monsoon rains are caused by cyclic air movement changing with the time of the year. I also learned that monsoon came from the Arabic word “maus im” meaning season.
            I will apply my learnings about monsoon in other lessons that are related to this and also to my daily life because it affects the weather.
            Learning about this phenomenon is important because if we know something about monsoon, we can be more aware in the happenings in the environment because monsoon causes rains.
            On a larger scale, I will share my learnings about these phenomenon to others so like me, they’ll be aware too in what’s happening in their environment.
            I need to know more about monsoon because it may help me in my lessons and also to know more information about it that can help me in my living.

LCD Journal Entry #6


Date: July 9-15, 2012
            Just like last week, I still do things to help in conserving energy. One night, woke up and its very cold because of the wind from the windows. I decided to turn off the electric fan since the air makes the environment cold. Then I slept again. That thing is just simple but I think it’s a great help to the environment. ^_^

LCD Journal Entry #5


Date: July 9-15, 2012
             This week, I helped again in conserving energy. I don't waste electricity by unplugging the appliances that are not being used. I also lessen my use of TV and computer if not necessary. This Saturday, we went to Janelle's house to do a group activity. We're almost 15 that's why we're so many. Before I go to Janelle's house, I went to the main gate of SMNHS to wait for Princess and Lyka riding a tricycle. When they arrived, I suggested walking from there to Janelle's house. They both agreed so we started to walk. Then we stopped in the main gate to wait for Celine. When she arrived, we walked again until we reached Janelle's house. When we're all complete, we started the activity. When we finished it, it’s already lunch time. We decided to eat in a carinderia near their house. We walked outside instead of riding any vehicle because it’s just near. We ate there and walked again to go back in Janelle's house. Walking not only saves energy but also helps us to be physically fit because walking is also a kind of exercise. That’s my LCD for this week ! ^_^

LCD Journal Entry #4


 Date: June 25-29, 2012
                  This week is a stormy week and almost every day it’s raining that’s why my shoes are always wet and dirty. Well, I’m still doing the things that I did last week and other weeks. SO, I’m still helping in conserving energy.
                This Friday, we, II - A students helped in cleaning the garbage like papers, plastic cups, plastic bottles, candy wrappers, etc. in the Grandstand after the election. I’m also starting to teach myself using a glass when brushing my teeth. If we use glass of water in brushing our teeth, we won’t waste water. That’s my LCD for this week ! ^.^

LCD Journal Entry #3


Date: June 18-22, 2012
            Its been a nice week this week cause the weather is not so bad. Just like last week, many third year students collect plastic bottles for their activity. So to help them, the plastic bottles we use were placed to a sack to give it to them. We not only help them but also the environment. We’re also putting all the papers that we’re not going to use in a sack instead on the trash can. Also, before I sleep, I always unplug the appliances I use to lessen the consume of energy. That’s my LCD for this week !

LCD Journal Entry #2


Date: June 11-15, 2012
            This week is a rainy week. That’s why the soil is always wet. It’s also the2nd week in school. I’ve been very busy on my school works. But that doesn’t mean I haven’t done anything for the environment. After I turned off my computer, I remembered that my teachers always say that we should always unplug the electrical appliances after using. And I realized that I’ve been wasting so much energy because I always forger to unplug the laptop, internet, charger and other things I use. Starting that day, I never forgot to unplug the things I use. And that’s my LCD for this week! ^.^

LCD Journal Entry #1


Date: June 4-8, 2012
            This week is our first week in Second Year Highschool. We, II – A students met new teachers. It’s just 5 days but I feel like many things happened this week. I also learned some new things this week. While I was with my friends outside our room, I saw a candy wrapper and think about it. The next thing I do is picking up that candy wrapper and putting it in the trash can. This Friday also, me and my friends watered the plants near our room, we enjoyed it not only as a bonding time but also because we helped the plants. For me, doing simple things like those can help the environment. That’s my LCD for this week! ^.^
