Hello world, I am sorry I have not been posting on this blog. I have been thinking about updating this every week but I never got a chance. That’s why my blog is going to be written on with both me and my friend, and this will no longer be called “Reporter Clarissa”. It would now be called “Girl Power”. If you are wondering why it is being called “Girl Power”, well its because we are both girls, me and my friend.
So this week on Monday I learned that there was two diabetes. Type One Diabetes and Type Two Diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is usually diagnosed in children and young adults, and was previously known as juvenile diabetes. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. Only 5% of people with diabetes have this form of the disease. With the help of insulin therapy and other treatments, even young children with type 1 diabetes can learn to manage their condition and live long, healthy, happy lives.
Type 2 diabetes is the most common form of diabetes. Millions of Americans have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and many more are unaware they are at high risk. Some groups have a higher risk for developing type 2 diabetes than others. Type 2 diabetes is more common in African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, as well as the aged population. In type 2 diabetes, either the body does not produce enough insulin or the cells ignore the insulin. Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use glucose for energy. When you eat food, the body breaks down all of the sugars and starches into glucose, which is the basic fuel for the cells in the body. Insulin takes the sugar from the blood into the cells. When glucose builds up in the blood instead of going into cells, it can lead to diabetes complications.

Anyways I was wondering if you kids do the samething at your school too?
Do you have diabetes?
I like blogging because I can talk to people in other countries, states, and even in my hometown. I met a few friends already and we are going to skype when I get the equipment. My friends told me I was very creative. My blog tells what I cook and when. Blogging is better than tests and essays. I also get good grades with my blog instead of regular work.
I was emailing Mrs. Watanabe to find out he jumped out of her purse when she was talking to Mrs. Farris. So, when I got to school I was looking through my backpack to find some pencils when I saw a special guest, Mr. Davo!
1. The first thing we did was make s’mores in a pizza box solar oven mine was really melted. Davo almost ate mine.
2. The next day he almost ate my cinnamon roll and drank my milk. The cinnamon roll was delicious.
4. When I went to my neighbor’s house for a birthday party we went in the bouncy house he fell on his head! Poor Davo.
I had fun when he came to my house. I hope he has fun in Connecticut.
For Disney Planet Challenge we are raising money for refugees in Africa. Right now we are on our second step. Step one is to tell the class, step two is make our own solar cooker. We just need to do step three and four. Step three is to bake cookies, step four is to give the money. Step five is go to Disney Land or Disney World if we won. Here is a picture of my teachers solar oven and a pizza box one. It will be good for when it’s summer when the sun is just right. The pizza box is best for like pizza, hot dogs and s’mores. We are going to make some pringle solar ovens and curved concentrators (parabolics). The pringles are really best for small things like hot dogs and s’mores, etc. The curved concentrators (parabolics) are for like popcorns in a cooking pot.
Have you made a solar oven?
Will you make one if you haven’t?
