Writing poetry encourages creativity and self-expression. Poetry stirs the imagination and it is an excellent practice for strengthening writings skills, cultivating a strong vocabulary and learning to think outside the box. In this post, the participants at SEEDs for Autism use poetry to describe emotions through the window of their senses.
Thanks to a generous grant from Thunderbird Charities, our Media Lab is the latest addition to the curriculum at SEEDs for Autism. This exciting department focuses on developing and practicing social skills through the use of technology and new media formats such as video production, animation and computer arts. Staying current with new innovations in communication and information, participants will utilize computers, cameras and video to share their stories, connect with others and document all the exciting things happening at SEEDs for Autism.
Doing something new can be frightening. In some cases though, doing new things can be awesome if it pertains to something you’re passionate about. Seeds for Autism has added a new department called the Media Lab. Students like me get to learn about framing shots and how to operate video cameras. We also get to learn how to setup stories. I’ve always been a big movie fan. However, the purpose of the Seeds media lab is to record videos promoting Seeds products. I’m good with promoting Seeds. I feel the media lab will be great for me because it allows me to pursue my interest in video and production and it will allow me the opportunity to make more people aware about Seeds and what we do.

Cooperation builds communication skills, boosts self-confidence and teaches us to work together as a team. At SEEDs for Autism, we understand that learning to cooperate with others is an important skill that promotes higher achievement and cultivates positive relationships in all areas of life. We asked SEEDs participants to share their thoughts on this important topic.
When you decide to cooperate with another person on a big project, you two are helping each other with putting the finishing touches on that same project. Whenever you see someone in need of getting the job done, you help that someone finish up whatever task they were given. When you are finished with helping that someone with some task, that would make you supportive.
Sometimes it’s not enough to do something on your own. Maybe it takes more than one person. Maybe you’re stuck in a tight situation and need help. Sometimes the problem can be solved before it even happens. These are only some of the many reasons why cooperation is important in a working environment. It may not always be easy, but it’s worth putting in the effort to get the job done faster and in much better quality. The more times people cooperate, the more they will trust, understand, and rely on each other for help.
It is important for you to cooperate because when you work together it makes it easier, and not only that, the project can be done a lot faster. When nobody cooperates, it makes the task a lot harder than it needs to be.
Cooperation is very important because humans are social animals. Without cooperation things like society, languages, and basically everything that makes up our daily lives would not have been created. Some people like to brag about how they never needed help from anyone or say it’s “every man for himself”, but that is never true. They were raised by people who cared for them when they were young, went to schools taught by people who were in turn taught by other people, they eat food bought from stores which were bought from farms, the very concept of buying something came from our society’s decision to place a specific value on pieces of otherwise useless paper. Everyday we cover the weak points of other humans while they help us cover ours, in large ways like with doctors treating patients to small ways like helping someone carry a heavy object. While you do not have to cooperate with everyone, to refuse to ever cooperate is to devalue all the effort put forth by other humans both currently living and in the past.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Detective Pikachu.
In this game, you play as both a highly intelligent Pikachu who is not only skilled in detective work but also capable of human speech as well as Tim Goodman (Pikachu’s new human friend).
In this game, Detective Pikachu and Tim Goodman work to solve the disappearance of Tim Goodman’s Father as well as the various mysteries surrounding Ryme City.
The cast of support characters are Emilia Christie (a GNN news reporter), Meiko Okamoto (Emilia’s camera woman), Roger Clifford (GNN Producer), Ethan Graham (GNN president), Mimikyu (GNN News Network’s mascot), Brad McMaster (Ryme City’s police lieutenant)(partner Pokemon: Manectric), Mike Baker (Head of the Baker Detective Agency/former associate of Tim Goodman’s father)(partner Pokemon: Accelgor), Frank Holiday (Ryme City’s police Inspector), Amanda Blackstone (Assistant at the Baker Detective Agency)(partner Pokemon: Fletchling) and Pablo Millan (owner of the Hi-Hat Cafe)(partner Pokemon: Ludicolo).
In conclusion, I believe this Pokemon game will showcase Pikachu in a highly intelligent Sherlock Holmes fashion comprised of both looks and behavior. (“Elementary-my dear trainer-Elementary.”)
