          You might think that going to the pool or the beach with some friends or your family might be fun and chillaxing. Well...I hate to break it down to you people but it won't be fun after reading this. In most situations, there are good and bad sides. In this case, the good side is that (like I said earlier) hanging out in the water might seem fun. But it is kind of not safe for the most parts. For example, pools are covered with chlorine and who knows when or where people pee in pools. If anything, there is a bigger chance that you would get a bigger chance of getting sick in pool waters that body waters. Swimming in the pool can cause you to have an outbreak. An outbreak is two or more people contracting a similar illness from the same location and time of exposure. There were 493 outbreaks by using pool, hot tub, spa, and water playground. I am recommending you (or possibly warning you) that don't go in to any of the pools, hot tubs, spas, water playgrounds, lakes, ocean's, beaches and et cetra.

Article 3

          Most students wouldn't want to wear school uniforms. Well...that's what I heard. Even I am a student, I do not want to wear school uniforms. Students should also get the rights to wear what ever we want. Right? Teachers don't need to so why should we. There are pros and cons of wearing a school uniform.
 +
The pros are:
 +
-Help prevent gangs from for ming on campus
 +
-Encourage discipline
 +
-Help students to resist peer pressure to buy trendy clothes
 +
-Help identify intruders in the school
 +
-Diminish economic and social barriers between students
 +
-Increase a sense of belonging and school pride
 +
-Improve attendance
 +
The cons are:
 +
-Violate student's right to freedom of expression
 +
-Make student a target of bullies from other schools
 +
It might not be as bad as you think of it. Remember every situation has a good and bad side (pro and con).

Article 4:

          The life cycle of a banana is a vivid one. It is the change of color that makes the banana's life cycle interesting. It starts off with the  green color (meaning that is not really ready to eat yet.) Then when IT IS ready to eat it turns into yellow. (Now we can eat our banana.) When the banana waits too long to be eaten, it turns brown and mushy. Therefore it has to be thrown away...

Have you ever wondered what causes the color change, and what makes banana go from green all the way to its dark side? As it turns out, bananas are a little too vaporous for their own good.

          When students are asked to write a paper, they are required to gather information about their topic. To gather information, the students either use Internet or books. The Internet is very easy to access, and it is easy for the information to get into your mind when studying. However, the problem with the Internet is that some informations might not be accurate or that it might be completely wrong. In the other hand, the information found in books has a much higher chance than the information found on the internet. The author of the book probably took years and years writing that book , but yet, the writer of the Internet might have taken only a few minutes writing an article. So, therefore reading a book is more precise of the timing it took the author of writing it and the process is probably more careful in a way.

Article 9: Cool Your Home Without Air Conditioning

          Most people probably would say that they can't live if they wouldn't have an AC in their house. As a matter of fact, air conditioners are an essential machine to public health. But turning on the AC in your house for the rest of summer might have an increase of your bill, polution by forcing up power plants tp burn more fossil fuel, and makes hot nights even hotter. If you don't like paying your bill at the end of the month or if you care about the society and there is a way to fix all that. You can look into installing  renewable power for your house or buy energy from renewable sources. When you head outside the house try to control your body temperature and drink lots of water. When you are inside the house, you can do a lot of drive down the temperature before turning on the AC. There are a lot of ways to cool yourself with the air conditioning.

Article 11: Why Social Media is Not Smart For Middle School Kids

                There are always the pros and cons in life to everything. In this case, I read about the 5 reasons why social media is not smart for middle school kids. First, kids starts their social media experience lying about their age. Starting in middle school would prpbably change how the kids act in a way. They would probably be wanting to act cool arranging their "new" selves. Second, kids' brains are highly defenseless to applications made to be addictive. Third, on social media kids see a mocking perspective of reality. One of the common questions when kids enter middle school is "Who am I ?" For guys wearing hair gel and new deodorant scents suddenly become momentous. All the while, social media emphasizes a child's tendency to focus merely on themselves. Middle school is a time when kids feels as if the whole qorld.is.looking at the (and judging them). Social media can amplify the worst of it. That can lead to depression, severe bullying, and to the worst case scenario-suicides. Lastly, social media pushes kids into perilous attitude to persue affirmation. It's like trying to dress them (the middle schoolers) in clothes that are too big. You have to wait and let them grow up.

' Prehistoric ' shark captured
 
 
 
A shark with a snake head was captured,pulled from the ocean near Portugal. This shark has more than 300 teeth and was around 5 feet in length. From more than 2000 feet below the surface of the sea, it was hauled by a trawler. These Frilled sharks have been around for more than 80 million years but we still don't have enough information on them. This long, slim "living fossil" also poses a large threat to squid🐙 and other fish they are thought to prey on because like their modern cousins(Hammerhead , Great white ect.)they have neddle shaped teeth and the jaws to catch large prey. 🇵🇹

Whale spa day

To get rid of loose and dead skin, Bowhead whales rub themselves against giant boulders. Beluga whales and Ocras (killer whales) were known to do this but this was the first known for Bowhead whales. The whales regularly molt, shedding the top layer of dead skin. These whale especially use rocks on Cumberland sound to exfoliate their skin. 🐳 🐋 🌊
