ACO 5.0 - Coding Altino Cars



Coding is a important skill to learn because even if you don't plan on becoming a programmer it could help you with logical communications. If students learn how to do coding then they would have more understanding on technology around them and would get inspired to make new ideas about any kind of technology. It also will help with writing and verbal skills. In Challenge #1 my partner and I had to figure out how we could make the the car go into a figure 8. The logic statement I will use to tackle the challenge is " Go straight with the speed 400, turn wheels to the left and hold wheels for .2 seconds, then go straight, turn left and then turn right, finally go straight and ended at the finish line".  For the Altino car, we had to use "Go",  "Steering", and "Delay" in order to make the car go from point A to point B. I felt very stressed and frustrated throughout the whole process of trying to experiment with different codes to make because everyone that I tried to do didn't really come out successful. 



The new command that we used for challenge #2 while loop. I would NEVER trust an autonomous vehicle to give a ride to somewhere because you never know when the coding can glitch or cause and accident. I'm sure that the autonomous vehicle will take over most of the complex tasks in the future, like the ambulance response and the police control."The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, however, found that over 90% of car crashes involve human error. In the remaining cases, factors such as weather and failed car components were primary causes. Robots can potentially be programmed to make faster and better decisions while avoiding human pitfalls such as driving while drunk over texting." The autonomous car will be a more efficient way to get around to places that need fast acting systems and will become a better system paramedics may be used in the future to get to places quicker. Also the autonomous vehicles will also be a big help for deaf or blind people, it'll help them get to places and will make it way easier for them to travel the roads.

ACO 3.0 - Art and Design



The elements used in my still life painting was line, texture, and value. The line was used to outline the objects, texture was used for the shading, and the value was used to make shadows in the drawing. In order for me  to make it a nice value scale in drawing, you have to make the brush size small. Part of the digital painting that I found most challenging was doing the outline on the picture. Another thing I found challenging was converting the picture to a line drawing picture because there was a lot of steps we had to take to make it look good. The digital painting process that I found enjoyable was doing the outline on the big places but it started to get hard when you had to do the smaller parts.

I think that this picture was either taken by Donkey beach or by Kealia. The differences between my finished landscape image and my finished still is that my landscape image has more texture and a little of value. In the still image it just has more of the outline. I stayed with the more basic beginning tutorial because I didn't want to mess anything up. Also because if I didn't end up liking then I wouldn't like the results at the end on how it would come out. My technique If art was a positive agent of change graffiti would have made a better society out of all of us, just because it was all over the place, but it just amounted to a medium of expression and sometimes protest.

Picture Credit goes to : Coach Paka


The portrait photo that I'm using is one of my friends that is now my teammate and my sister, Her name is Jumba Kupihea. This photo was taken at the states softball field on Oahu at the Mckinley high school softball field on May 04, 2017.  In this picture there is only her and the sign but in this image she is throwing the ball to home.  The reason why I'm using her is because she was the one that helped me out through my softball years.  She was the one that I could ask for help and would show me the correct way.  This final image uses all the elements because in it has some type of shape, forms, colors, lines, spaces between each piece of textures, and values.  For example her hair the number on her jersey, the background, eyes, mouth, ears, and noes.  Last but least my result for my critique was for my mix someone but it as a 4. I really don't agree with them because I wasn't really finished doing it. Also because I could have put in a little more work in to it. Maybe to them it looked good because maybe his/ her standards are low.

ACO 5.0 - Audio Production



Intonation and inflection can be used in many ways, for example the rise and fall of your voice. My role in this is being the leader of the group and also doing the vocal talent. The job of being the leader is the one who organizes the things needed. As the vocal talent of music must have an understanding of the skills, talents, and vocal properties of singers. The rehearsal is really important because in that you have to put everything together. But before you even start to record you have to get your scrip approved by Mr. Sanderl and make sure it's ready to be recorded. To record and get it down on the first try you need to practice a couple times and then record it for final." Create your own visual style...let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for other."


Reflecting back on our final product I would say that my team member and I did a awesome work finishing it up and putting it together all in one. Our highest result was level of completion we did not have lower than a 2. Our team reached for the goal of communicating a specific message about the 7 elements to our audience. Some obstacles we faced well doing this audio project was to recored in one take. Also putting our scrip together and making it sound like a radio personality.  But in the end me and my team overcame the obstacle and we ended with a good scrip after all. If I had to do this project again with the same group we would improve on our talking and add a little more emotion to it next time.

ACO 2.0 - Market Shifts



A market has to do with purchase and sales of products. That uses digital technology, also uses mobile phones. Back then they didn't have I-phones and smartphones as we have now days. Also now they made water prof cases for any I-phones you may have so if it rains and your phone get wet it still would work. The modern day marketing place needs to compare the creative side of the use in powerful person to tap into other people’s wishes and ambition with the technical side of data and digital engineering. Marketing is people’s motivations and using these insights to create campaigns that promote brands and encourage people to buy their products.

Some skills that are related to arts and communication industry is media arts, literary arts, technical arts, performing arts, and visual arts.I would like to improve on photography and filmmaking because I always wanted to become a photographer. To me I thought that becoming a photographer and filmmaking person would be cool for me to learn more about so that I can apply it to a job that includes arts & communication. Something that will help me become more successful in my life time is because I'll end up using it in my everyday life. Also I enjoy taking pictures and editing videos that I take with a Go-pro or a Drone. I would like to learn how to make it more unique so that I could make a company or a web-site where I could get payed for doing something that I love to do.

ACO 4.0 - Communication Strategies


Whenever I'm with certain people I talk different depending on who I'm with.For example when I talk to my friends i'm a little more talk-active.We talk faster then what we would normally talk. Whenever I'm talking to any of my family members it's a lot different because I don't talk to them the way I talk to my friends.For me talking to them is lot more easier because they where there when I needed them through thick and thin they taught me to be the best.Through life you will have hard times and there are a lot of people you could talk to for help if you need but the people your more comfortable talking to that can understand you is better to go to.The different ways I can communicate throughout all areas of my life is by showing that i'm a hard- working person, I love to be creative and i'm a very active person. I feel more comfortable and most understood with my family because I can be a little more open and feel like I could talk to them and tell them about my problems or something I need help with. In order for me to improve on my communication around my lifetime I could probably be more open to people , and talk to people that I'm not really close with.

When I graduate from High School I really wanna go to College, when I graduate from college I wanna be able to travel the world and go to place I've never gone to before. I might wanna go for Nursing or something that involves around people. I'm interested in pursuing an Pediatric Endocrinology Nurse, because I love to help people out and to be by people. In order for me to get to this field and succeed I need a lot to improve with my communication skills. The communication skills I need to improve is working more with people. I also need to work more on sitting and talking to you if you would have any questions for me that I should know or answer to help you.
