Isometric Drawing

Isometric means "equal measurement". The true dimension of the object is used to construct the drawing. You get the true dimension from either orthographic views or by measuring the object. Because of the convenience of using actual measurements to create the isometric image, it has become the industry standard for parts manuals, technical proposals, patent illustrations and maintainance publications.


Oblique Drawing

Oblique drawing is drawing a 3-d image with one side of the object with its true shape and the rest of the sides with different shapes.Eg: cube, cuboid

Orthographic Drawing

Orthographic drawing is drawing a 3d image from different 2d views. This enables us to see the 3d image from different sides.

To me the environment means a place where you are surrounded by. The things and/or people in that place make up the environment.

This is what the mac dictionary says:
The surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates.
• the setting or conditions in which a particular activity is carried on : a good learning environment.[This sort of environment is quite abstract in the sense that its the vibes you get from that place not the things that are there.]
• Computing the overall structure within which a user, computer, or program operates : a desktop development environment.[This environment is technological.]
2 ( the environment) the natural world, as a whole or in a particular geographical area, esp. as affected by human activity.[This is what most people refer to as environment.]

This is what wikipedia says:

may refer to:

In computing:

Look at the amount of different meanings environment. They are all completely different .

All in all I now think environment just means a place something or someone is surrounded by.

Will human beings’ selfish acts bring about the Earth’s doom?

Ans: Yes!!! Definitely!!!

What we can we do to save the Earth?

Of course we can reuse, reduce and recycle. For example, we can reuse big juice bottles as watering cans or plant pots. We can also reduce our use of plastic bags by using big recyclable bags instead, especially when we go marketing. Recycling of boxes to make art and craft, and making sure that we dump recyclables to the recycling bins, are ways we can do our part.

I also think we should plant more trees in barren land and stop cutting down trees. This is because the more trees there are, there will be less carbon emissions as plants absorbs the most carbon dioxide in this world. To add on, plants give out oxygen which we need, to live.

World leaders should start working more cooperatively with the smaller nations in the world to save the earth from its doom. During the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference Copenhagen 2009, the President of the United States of America said that they were going to take note of what was needed to be done. Only Brazil, China, US, South Africa and India were agreeable. The rest of the smaller nations were not happy with the decisions made as what the bigger nations agreed on did not really address the world issue of global warming. The smaller nations called the agreement the start of a holocaust.

I also agree with the idea of synthetic trees being developed from the baobab trees, native to Africa and Australia, to temporarily store carbon dioxide. Please read this article about it.
This would buy us some time to save the world.
