# My name, in decimals!

Hi there reader! This post is a post about maths. The teacher has made a chart that converts each letter alphabet into a decimal number. As you should know,(if you follow my blog) my name is Timothy. I have a last name, but I am not allowed to reveal it.

The value of my full name is \$2.80.

The most valuable name in my family is my name.

I only have 1 pet, and his name is Rocky, his name is worth \$1.26.

The value of the name of my street is \$2.79.

Here is a chart of the conversion: A=.27 B=.10 C=.12 D=.14 E=.27 F=.16 G=.18 H=.20 I=.27 J=.22 K=.24 L=.26 M=.28 N=.30 O=.27 P=.32 Q=.34 R=.36 S=.38 T=.40 U=.27 V=.42 W=.44 X=.46 Y=.27 Z=.48

Now that you now the conversion, what’s the value of your name? Please comment. Thanks for reading!

# The Ballarat Times

Hi there readers! Today’s post is about the newspapers in the Australian gold rush. In Ballarat to be precise. Here’s the Ballarat times, written by me, edited by me, printed by the computer!

GOLD NUGGET FOUND!

June 10,-Eureka! That’s what I’ve been hearing of lately. James Norm, owner of a little shack, is now the owner of a big and beautiful nugget! It was the size of his palm. He was so full of happiness when he found the nugget. When he came out of the mine shaft, he had tears of joy running down his face. He exchanged the gold nugget for 656 pounds. Although today, all his money was stolen. The troopers still don’t know who stole it, as they are planning a holiday trip to Melbourne. James Norm also committed suicide today by jumping down a 400 feet mine shaft. His wife says that today has been a tragedy for her family. She said the tragedy was that the money was stolen, not that her husband committed suicide. She had only been married for a year and 6 months and has a child.

# Squabbling Colonies

Hello there reader, this post is about why Australia needed federation, enjoy.

Australia, in the late 1800’s. Each colony-Victoria, New South Whales, South Australia, Western Australia, Queen’s Land, Tasmania, and the Northern Territory.

The colonies in the late 1800’s all acted independently, like separate countries. Some were acting like children, fighting about who was better. They all needed a solution.

Tasmania was struggling to get out of its convict past, Western Australia felt isolated from the eastern colonies, Queen’s Land had its own problems wanting to split into 3 separate colonies, and the Northern Territory felt neglected under Southern Australian control. The colonies of Australia, needed federation.

But of course there are Pros and there are Cons. Pros-everyone has the same train tracks, meaning everyone can get around easier. They can also share resources with each other. Cons- the individual governments of each colony would have to give up some power, and they would have to SHARE resources.

This continued until 1901, that was when federation was made, and the colonies of Australia were united under one name, Australia.
