Does the past have an impact on our future?

12:41pm Saturday 5th April 2014

Last night I saw the well anticipated film Divergent; it’s true it has preceded its vast popularity and excitement. From the jaw opening, thrilling action scenes and the gripping futuristic story, it is a must watch for everyone. Aside from the brilliance of the cinematography and story line, I find that this film stands out from other thrilling action films set in the future like the Hunger Games. Instead of majestic fictional tale, Divergent sets itself in the future but it understandable and not far out of imagination. It encompasses the belonging of people to set factions of certainty of who they are or are supposed to be. The film explores the concept of human nature being an enemy towards the human itself.  Habitual human feelings and characteristics such as envy or love are thought to be dangerous to keeping peace and harmony. Therefore, the splitting up of people into factions of who they are such as being selfless or brave is thought to be necessary to maintain an order of living. To me, the film displays an important message that not everyone may see. It displays the impact of modern day fascism implied by the acute sectioning of people, also the killing of the divergent (people who’s test for results for who they’re meant to be being inconclusive) quite resembles Hitler’s ethnic cleansing of those who did simply not fit in. It’s typical for historians to point at the negative impact that Hitler’s Nazi regime of fascism had, with deeper analysis into today’s world, unfortunately not much has changed. This is a worrying thought. And in the film, this is shown carefully in the way that one is able to see the impact of the governing of our world.

A change in the libraries

11:19pm Monday 31st March 2014

Libraries all over Newham have recently been updated to reflect its new purpose in the community. All over the London Borough of Newham many the old traditional libraries are changing. No more is the sombre traditional layout being seen. Instead the interiors have been updated into new spacious rooms that have a different  purpose. Before, libraries were important as they were  created a space to allow citizens to freely access information and text. However nowadays we can simply gain access to almost any information via the internet. It was thought that they were no longer needed in today's society but Newham has brought it back to life. You no longer do you have to worry about being shushed. Instead there's ordering  books online and so many different things to get involved in. Also on certain days they open longer so students can have a productive place to learn and revise. By creating an open light space creates room the read, create, discuss; they aren't you traditional library. But many people have welcomed it for creating a space that cater to everyone's needs. with finger painting, homework clubs as well as your expected book clubs. It goes beyond reading a book silently and has become a placed centred at the heart of the community.

Tantalizing terror of ever-nearing GCSE's for teenagers and the pressure that ensues.

With GCSE’s being a mere year away, nerves are starting to emerge amongst my year group. The simple thought of enduring six weeks of pressure that could determine your future; the jobs you have, the university you go to, what sixth form you get in to.  The stress is not only present in the exams, but the lead up before it when you face a constant self-questioning; when should I start revising? What should I revise? Where do I even start!?
