Persuasive Argument

WALT make a claim that is supported by details, reasons and explanations.

I strongly believe that New Zealand should take more refugees from countries in war, it would benefit us Kiwis and the refugees a great deal. The benefits range from richer culture, better education, to lower rates, to less imports and more exports. We have only 0.00056% of the world’s vast population .

When refugees come to our country they will bring important things such as exotic foods, new languages, distinctive clothing, different senses of humor, diverse manor and unique religions. All these things add up to a interesting and diverse culture which is great for making an intriguing social community with engaging differences.

New Zealand like any country treasures their children and what every child needs is good education. The more pupils coming to schools the bigger the schools are and the more money will be going into the schools benefiting our learning. If schools had more money they would be able to afford more technology and equipment such as computers or a 3D printer.

If we had enough people we wouldn’t have to import so much stuff from other bigger countries such as Australia and china. Our main import from China is clothes and if we are capable to we will make our own clothes and sell them here in New Zealand.    The  less we have to import the less effort time and money we will have to use to get ourselves the goods we need

All New Zealanders that occupy a house have to pay rates or if you live in a rental house you pay rent to the person or company that possesses that house and they pay rates. The larger the amount of people the more houses required to meet the needs of the people. So there would be more people paying rates creating better services for less  money paid to local government and the local government would still be receiving the same quantity of money if not more.

In conclusion I strongly believe that refugees should be allowed accepted and welcomed into our communities. They make New Zealand a better place by creating a more culturally diverse country. We should also take them choosing our country above all of the other countries as a compliment it proves that we are a clean and green and aspirational country.

     How Do Flies Fly?

Flies are outstanding aerialists as you would find out if you tried to swat a fly.
Flies can hover, move vertically, fly backwards and stand upside down on the ceiling.

Flies wings are not hooked together so they flap as opposites.
when you watch  a fly you can see drumstick shapes halters flapping up and down.
Flies move at amazingly high speeds a human equivalent would be patting your head and rubbing your stomach for a mile.

Flies only have two functional wings.
the other pair have shrunken into drumstick like organs called halters.
Halters function as gyroscopes that help flies orient themselves in flight.

Mechanical couplings helps flies keep their sense of rhythm.
When the front wings go up the halters go down.
When the front wings speed up so do the halters.

The fly's wings help the fly to fly.
Flying is a big part of a flies life.

  Neil Armstrong
Neil Armstrong is my hero because he was the first man on the moon and someday I want to go to the moon.

Before he went to the moon Neil was an aerospace engineer, naval aviator, test pilot and university professor.
Neil was born on 5 August 1930, in Ohio, United States.
His father was a state auditor which meant the family moved every few years to a new Ohio town while Neil was growing up.

On The Moon
On December 23 1968 Neil was offered the command of the Apollo 11.
On July 21 2:56pm he was the first human ever to set foot on the moon.
It took Apollo 11 thats the spaceship that carried Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin to the moon 4 days, 6 hours and 45 minutes to the moon.

Korean War
In 1949 his studies were interrupted when he was called to serve in the Korean War. When Neil Armstrong was in the war he was a navy pilot and flew 78 combat missions. He left the service in 1952 and returned to college. A few years later, Neil Armstrong joined the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) which later became the National Aeronautics and space Administration (NASA).

In conclusion Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon and became very famous because of it.Image result for neil armstrong
