So it can be easily said that Python is much easier to programme/code when compared to other languages, Python is also widely used in data science, you can make comparable graphs in Python when compared to Excel, but using Python gives you greater control over your graph like you can change the fill color, add markers, change x and y axes, change fonts and many more, but Excel doesn't give you that kind of control over your features, to view more features head over to matplotlib.org.
The Despised Family
Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its way. Many, many years ago There was a family who had 3 equally gifted children, each of them had a special trait in them, the first child Neil had super-speed, he could outrun any boy in his school within a matter of seconds; the second boy, Joseph was a human calculator he could do any math problem in a matter of seconds, even complex algebra problems like 5x - 5 +14 = (7 + 14x - 35)/15 and cosine30; but the third child had a really special ability, he had laser eyes, he could zap anyone with his eyes if they messed with him and the funniest part was that he was 5. But everything good has a bad to it, no one liked the three children and tried to stay away from them.
Of course, their parents didn't like this and went to their astrologer. The astrologer looked silent but was vicious on the inside, she hated the family so much that she wanted to murder them. So she formulated a concoction that could cause them a virus strong enough to kill them. The fact that she didn't know was that the family was resistant to the virus. So on their second visit, the astrologer made them drink the potion, and somehow the transformed, completely transformed... their skin was shrinking into their bodies and a coat of red fleece was coming out and precisely in 21 seconds they were superheroes ready to save the world; as for the witch... she fainted and was never to be seen again.
Ohh and as for the family, they became the greatest superhero family in the world and also became the most important people in the world.
How the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the world!
So, as now the whole world knows the COVID-19 pandemic has caused us to be in complete lockdown ranging between 1 month and 8 months, people like me have been in quarantine since May and it still continues with only 3 circumstances where 2 of them are for morning walks and 1 of them is for a official purpose. Schools in the UAE have re-opened and are now functioning with fewer students and more safety precautions, the school I go to has restricted more than 8 students in one class. Face masks are obligatory and must be worn at all times.
How has the pandemic affected us?
The pandemic has shut down travel and now we cannot travel with the freedom that was there just a year back. It has reduced socialization and I remember that last year October, going out was like normal and when I think about going out, it feels like the blessing of a god.
Another thing is engagement in classes during school times, my brother is a classic example. Before the pandemic, he was at school and was scared to do anything but study and now is the opposite, he does everything EXCEPT study.
A boon is that the pandemic has proved that we all have the abilities to change and adapt, in the beginning it was uncomfortable to stay at home and resist the urge, now after 8 months (seriously), now I can manage everything and be comfortable at the same time!
The Macintosh and how it came to be!
We all know that the Macintosh is now a Mac and comes in types/versions like MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and iMacs, but do we know how this came to be?
January 24, 1984 was the day this Steve Jobs would be recognized by the world and Steve Wozniak helped him achieve his dreams, these duo came together to make the first Apple Computer called the "Macintosh", at first it could only show show up to 256 x 256 pixels, which is a square which was created by Jeff Raskin, it began in the 70s, he was an Apple Employee who had the vision to create a easy-to-use, low-cost computer that could be used by millions. He wanted to name the computer after his favorite apple: the McIntosh, but later it had to be changed due to some reasons.
The first Macintosh motherboard was made by Burell Smith and had 64 kilobytes of RAM which was nothing compared to now, most PCs have in gigabytes, like the computer I'm using to write now has 8 gigabytes of RAM, the maximum is 128 gigabytes (as of now!), then it was later remade to show 356 x 256 pixels which was a bit more rectangular compared to the original computer, these were not marketed yet but the final design would 512 x 342 pixels with a 9-inch screen. This design caught the attention of Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple and he instantly marketed it with Steve Wozniak and it became a success and is one of the most used computers in the world with 13% of the world using MacOS machines, the most used OS is the Windows OS with 78% of the world using it.
Soccer: the lifeblood in me!
Firstly, I cannot survive without soccer, it is what helps me live although during this pandemic, my ability to play soccer decreased drastically as I didn't get the opportunity to play. Although I could play at home, it was basically saying the same thing as swimming in a bathtub "?". My house is pretty small to be honest and there's just not enough space to play soccer.
I started playing football at the age of 7, I was in 3rd grade that time and my mother had told me to watch soccer instead of the cartoons I used to watch at the time and I was instantly addicted to it. This was the first player I had started liking and it was only because he humiliated everyone that tried to tackle or take the ball away from him.
As I said, this guy needs no introduction and is the 3rd best player in the world, I loved the bit that he could flick the ball up with his heels without any effort and now it is called a rainbow, I liked this guy for 2 years until I met these two monsters, they were definitely not better than Neymar but they are beasts.
This is Marcus Rashford and he is Manchester United's English striker and is known for his freekicks, he can knuckleball the soccer ball and make it look likes Ronaldo's technique without any degree of error.
The second beast is none other than Kylian Mbappe, he is one of the fastest players in the world and can be compared with cars running at 36-37 kilometers per hour. The French youngster was only 19 years old when he led his team to world cup last year in Russia and he currently plays as Number 7 of Paris Saint Germain alongside Neymar Jr., this boy has a bright future and can lead the team to many finals of many tournaments just like the Champions League final between PSG and Bayern, but sadly lost 1-0 to the Bundesliga champions for the last couple of years: Bayern Munich. Bayern Munich thrashed other teams like Barcelona 8-2 and Chelsea 0-3 (Aggregate 7-1), Tottenham 7-2.
These were the players that interested me in soccer but I really started playing soccer in 5th grade, my dad enrolled me in a soccer club called Shabab Al Ahli, UAE's best football team. I started playing here but they moved after a while so I could not continue soccer, then I started soccer at school, I played with my friends and it was really fun but that was the time my dream would come to an end, the COVID-19 pandemic had just began and UAE came to a lockdown and because of this the hype that was in me slowly started coming down and felt like my football days would come to an end! Luckily, I have a house (like most others) and it was small but I could play soccer with my father, I tried to make my brother play but he fell down every 7 seconds, my dad on the other hand gave me some challenges and it felt like me playing against Sergio Ramos but while I played soccer with my brother, he was like Teemu Pukki, he was terrible!
Why I go for morning walks and how it helps...
So, for the past two days, I have gone for morning walks and it helps me before classes. My classes begin at 7.40 and I leave my house at 6:15 and return at 7:15 that one-hour walk is very refreshing and completely rejuvenates my brain. when I begin classes I feel like I am completely refreshed and just got out of my bed and to be honest it feels like I never went for a walk at all. According to Google benefits of a morning walk include improved mental health, deeper sleep, boosting your brain health, improves heart health, and reduced risk of diabetes. Although I have no problem with my heart or I don't have diabetes, the first three are true for me because I feel like I'm completely refreshed when I start my studies, I have a very deep sleep when I go to bed, and I have a completely boosted brain health and it feels like I have a Core i7 in my brain because once I start my studies I feel like I'm flash. Another thing that I've been practicing regularly is getting up early and the best and most significant benefit for me is that I get up early and that creates a natural body Clock in myself and I get up at the same time every day. around a year back I used to wake up at 12 o'clock on Fridays and Saturdays but now that has changed for me from 12 o'clock to 7 o'clock in the morning and that is a significant change for me by 5 hours. once again this has given me some benefits like Giving me a boosted energy level and a fresh mood for studying, that's all I have to tell you this time… until then goodbye!
What is a book I love?
Wait... wait, I know that most of my pieces of text are biographies summarized into short paragraphs but this time I thought of writing about myself, or rather what my favorite book is.
I had just finished Storm catchers by Tim Bowler, he is an English author who writes children's books "?" and has won the Carnegie Medal in 1997 for his work.
Storm catchers is a book where a kidnapper kidnaps a rich man's daughter and asks for a ransom and promises that he will kill her if the money is not given to him soon. This all takes place when Fin goes to Billy's place and see a new computer "?" he has bought, after he comes back, he sees the door "?" open and immediately realizes, the story is very complex but it is very addictive, once you begin it is hard to get up. The complex bit is everyone's involved and it's like a network. The kidnapper goes further and asks Fin's father give his private "⛴", as Fin's father is one of the richest people around and the kidnapper keeps Ella (Fin's sister) and to his surprise "?" she finds everything there stolen from her father's supermarket and its as if the kidnapper is treating her nicely but his voice sounds harsh and coarse, so it is next to impossible to see if the kidnapper wants her alive or dead!
Alexander Graham Bell: the man that allowed us to call each other (over long distances, of course!)
Alexander Graham Bell was born to a modest family in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father was a teacher of the deaf who made instruments so that the deaf could interpret us like normal human beings. His father was a very successful teacher and young Alexander loved his father's occupation and soon mastered his father's job. His father quickly noticed this and the duo started performing and crowds from far away came to visit this rare child-father performance and they soon became local stars. After earning generously, his father thought of sending him to school and he found it very interesting, and he loved every bit of it. After his school days he started going to university and his professors treated him like their own sons, he was loved by all and cherished his time at the place. Here at college he started devouring all the books and soon became the talk of the university. At university he became an inventor of something we now call the 'telephone', it was not perfect but it could transmit sound through glass wires at a maximum distance of 700 ft and the voice was blurry, but this was the first time the world has experienced something like this and he became an over-night hero! His next challenge was to get rid of the wires and he did this with fiber-glass (not sure how exactly, but he did!), he finished his challenge with ease. His next challenge was portability and usability, the size was too big and the voices were a little blurry so he had to fix that and it was a bit difficult and once everything was perfected, it became something that everyone wanted and Western Union hired him to make more of his so-called 'telephones'. After this came his hydrofoil which was a bonus to normal planes and could allow planes to land on water and in 1922, he sadly passed away in Nova Scotia.
Nelson Mandela: the man who defied the whites (not being racist)!
Nelson Mandela was born in a tribe's home in SA (South Africa) and his father was to become a chief but died somehow. He was adopted by the chief of the tribe and grew up in his house and along with him lived his brother. The chief took him under his wing and cared for him...
The chief cared for him, sent him to school and even recommended a person to give him a job and then he got a job. Taking this for granted, he gave up his job by not actually resigning but sleeping during working hours, his manager quickly noticed that and fired him hastily. He went to Johannesburg, the capital, and started working there, there he was once again fired but not because of sleeping but not telling the chief he left his old job and once the manager got to know he was furious, so he again got fired and then in his 3rd job, he met Walter Sisulu who would become his life-long friend. He was bullied for being black by other whites, Walter Sisulu experienced the same and they both formed a gang along with a few other blacks and started protesting, at first others felt like he was wasting his time doing all this but slowly every black in town realized the urgency of doing and following what he did, after a few months his gang was almost a crew of a thousand members and he was the hero among the South Africans, he was regarded the same way as Indians regarded Mahatma Gandhi who realized the need and urgency of getting independence from the British. Anyways, at first hundreds of people got shot and were killed but his small army kept protesting and in the process, millions of people were killed (all-in-all), he and Walter Sisulu were jailed several times in the harshest prisons and during this period, Mandela got a chance to write his biography... he wrote all this in Robben Island, one of the harshest prisons to be built, this prison was alone and he was a D-class, the lowest class, he was permitted one letter and one person to meet him every 6 months, then he went to another prison, I don't remember the name of the prison, but he was in better conditions, 52 letters an year and I've forgotten the number of people allowed too. Finally, whites started protesting against whites who killed innocents... and the brutal whites finally took mercy and after all this, he turned 70 and for this special birthday, he celebrated it in the Emirates Stadium in London, he also heard that his wife was accused of murdering hundreds of innocent citizens but he stayed loyal to her but after seeing it with his own eyes, he divorced her. Then he married another women and his 90th birthday was also celebrated in the Emirates Stadium, in 2013, at the age of 95, he passed away and the entire world mourned his death.
Japan: the most resilient country in the world!
So today you will be reading about a country not a biography and the country will be Japan.
Japan has always been attacked and always been on of the most vulnerable countries and has been struck by earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, Americans bombing them, jellyfishes, whatnot? But somehow the Japanese always come out of this and always ended up better off. So in August 1945, Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed and millions ended up dying but from then onward America has not even able to sell a needle to them. The 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami left tens of thousands of people dead or missing and was one of the most tragic events in history.
