Some mothers in the United States do the unthinkable of committing maternal filicide which is killing a mothers child. Many mothers do this because they are mentally ill, in the article is states "Women who are convicted of infanticide there often receive probation and mental health treatment referrals rather than incarceration, according to Resnick’s report." Another motive that mothers might have to kill their mother is the child is an obstacle in her life, one line from the text that directly states this is "where a mother believes her child is a hindrance in her life". The final reason that mothers might have the motive to kill their son is because Mothers may be depressed or be suicidal and want their kids to go gown with them, am example of this would be "Judith Williams who drove her 16-year-old son to the top of Mount Diablo State Park, shot him in the back and head, and then turned the .357 revolver on herself." But despite all of these reasons mothers killing their children is still very rare and not a common occurrence.

In class today we read an article about how Holocaust survivors search for faith. This article relates to the book of job. One example is in The Book of Job, Job after all they things that God has put him through like killing his family, animals, crops, and giving him sores all across his body he still tries to search for faith by praying to God and still worshipping him after all the horrible things that God put him through. In the article it shows Holocaust survivors looking for faith in God, asking why he would put them through such a thing like the Holocaust, while in The Book of Job he looks for faith in God asking why he would put him through the torture that he's putting him through. The book of Job is different from The Article because in the Article a man is putting them through the holocaust while in the Book of Job God is putting him through the series of trials. It is also different because God was putting Job to a test while Hitler was not.

This first month of highschool has been a very new experience for me. Mainly I have enjoyed this school year so for, I like how I can wake up 30 minutes later compared ton the high school and I enjoy all the new choices for clubs and other after school activities. I also feel I have more things to do during school, for example I can leave school during lunch and come back before the period ends. Also the iPad is a great way to get notes done quicker and do better school work. I also feel that the work so far has been fairly easy but I'm pretty sure that it will get harder as the months pass. I also feel like I have more freedom, for example I can go on my phone when classes end and in the lunch room, also I have free periods which you don't get in the middle school. The only thing that I do not enjoy as much is that the school is very big and sometimes I can't make it to my classes on time. For example my 3rd period class is on the other side of my 2nd period class. Overall I feel like the rest of my school year will hopefully be as fun as I had this month.

Today we read this article, it is about how Noah's ark wasn't very long but it was more of a bowl shape, "it would have been like a massive bowl of rope piled up in a complex manner on a scaffolding of willow ribs." It is also about how the 4000 year old instructions on how to build Noah's ark are mathematically correct. Dr. Irving Finkel found they were 99% accurate. This relates to what we have read before because it contradicts what we have read before. We have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to accurately recreate Noah's ark, but now that we know it might be a bowl shape it could be possible. I the idea of Noah's ark being s bowl shape never crossed my mind. This can also connect to what we have learned because it talks about Gilgamesh's flood also and how people don't know that Gilgamesh's flood was before Noah's flood. It also showed how both floods are similar because the god in both stories was angry at the people in the world and decided to create a great flood to destroy everyone,
