Retrieved from:

According to this article, there are alot of majors under engineering, such as mechanical engineer jobs and electrical engineer jobs. Also, the author mentioned seven steps to be an engineer. the first step is Start Your Studies as Soon as Possible. The second steo is Prepare for the SAT. The third step is Investigate the Different Engineering Fields. The fourth step is Investigate the College Programs Available for Engineers.

The article talked about the paid degrees. And he discussed the best salary, and engineering accounted for the eight of the 10 most highly paid. And, the mechanical engineering was the seventh best paying degree. The petroleum engineering was the best paying degree, The average of offers rose to 86,220 from 83,121. Also, the article mentioned that the engineering became better than business majors, yet the Liberal art majors fell down. Finally, the article said that the factors play big roles in the salary rising.

The video's name is Claud Monet:Inventing Impression. The reporter's name is Emma. Emma, shows many things about Monet. He was born il Paris, Franch in 1840. His father owned a grocery store, and his mother was a singer. When he was 5 years old his family moved to Le Havre. When his mother died he moved to Paris an lived with his aunt. He studied art in Paris. His friends were Renoir, Bazille, and Sisley. He marred Camille. But he was obsessed with painting, and he painted her on her deathbed. After this painting he decided that he would never paint a person again.

I like Monet's kind of art. He is an impressionist. He wanted to capture the new nvance of light. The impressionists were against painting pictures with many moral messages. They did have a firm understanding of colors there and the nature of light. They like to paint the same subject. Also, they like to work directly from nature. Some impressionists are Monet, Manet, and Passaro. I like the impressionists, because it shows the nature. And, I like his way of the art, and his kind of color that he used in his painting. He is a great artist.
