Article 2

          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).

          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.

Why parents should not worry about Borax

Article 5:
----------

          Many of us worry on a daily basis. Sometimes we can be stressed over finances, job interviews, or even social gatherings. You might not believe this but this feeling can be helpful. They give us a boost of focus or even energy. But for people anxiety diorders can be overwhelming. Anxiety disorders affect nearly 1 in 5 American adults each year. People with these disorders have feelings of fear and uncertainty that interfere with everyday activities and last for 3 months or more. We all use different strategies to adjust our emotions often without thinking about it. If something makes you angry, you may need to tamo down your emotion to prevent from making a scene. There are so many possibility to facing anxiety disorders.

-------
parents shouldn't worry about the amounts of borax in the children's toy, slime. Borax is a chemical that is used in slime making as an "Activator" to fully complete the slime recipe. Borax and other boron compounds are considered non-toxic at low levels and the average adult eats at least a milligram or two each day since borax is commonly found in many food items we eat. Adding on, even if we eat or consume borax, it does not accumulate in the body unlike heavy metals such as lead, you urinate it out within the same day you consumed it. Also, the only way to get sick by borax is to consume at least 5000mg of borax per day, thus unless the child consumes 5000mg of borax per a day, they should not get sick. Therefore the chemical, Borax, is not a true danger to children with slime.

          The pineapple is a tropical fruit with an edible multiple fruit consisting of coalesced berries, also called pineapples, and the most economically significant plant in the family Bromeliaceae. Pineapples may be cultivated from the offset produced at the top.of the fruit,  possibly flowering in five to ten months and fruiting on the following six months. Pineapples do not rippen significantly after harvest. In 2016, Costa Rica, Brazil, and the Philippines accounted for nearly one-third of the world's production of pineapples.

Article 8: Book vs Internet Articles
Harvard created new foldable grabber arm that, unlike suction or claw-like grabbers, Can capture even fragile sea creatures such as jelly fish and their relatives without harming them. This foldable grabber arm was made by Zhi Ern Teoh at Harvard University in Massachusetts, Zhi and his team made the foldable grabber arm to capture fragile sea life without damaging or harming them. With this new technology researchers can study sea life underwater and allow them to get more interesting results. The Harvard team is even trying to add additional hardware, such as 3D scanners and DNA swabs, to examine creatures whilst inside the foldable grabber. This new grabber arm can help researchers and scientists alike study and examine sea creatures in their natural habitat and avoid harming them.

          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 10: Uses of cell/mobile phones
 
+
          Each and every technology has advantages and disadvantages. Well, you should think twice before considerating them as a "life saver" (what most 10 to 16 year olds would say).Students can improve themselves with the help of cell phones, or they could spoil their lives with the same cell phone that they are using. It all relies on how the student is using it.
  Robots and AI were first believed to take the jobs of half the American work force and one third of the jobs in the UK, but further research points the other way. Frist of all, with automation, It will be expensive to cover and more job positions would be available due to lack of cost, but more spending. Adding on, present day research now states that only 10 percent of the American work force would be affected, and only 12 percent of the UK work force would be affected. Thus, with new evidence, We can safely say that robots and AI might give more jobs than they take.

Article 11: Why Social Media is Not Smart For Middle School Kids
Article#4
+
                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.

          When you think of your hair, you might be considering the ones on your head. But as you grow up, you will learn that there are hair all over the human body, except your lips, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. Some of the hair on your body can be easily seen, like the ones on your eyebrows, hair on your head, arms, and legs. But some can be almost invisible like the ones on your cheeks. Under the control of where your hair is being placed, it has different functions. Like, the has hair on your head keeps your head warm and maintain a little cushioning on you skull. Also, your eyelashes protect your eyes by lessening the number of light and dust that go into them, and eyebrows insulate your sweat from dripping from your forehead.

  A new device that emits light can supposedly cure cancer. This device is used for Photodynamic therapy, in this therapy the patient takes a drug to make his or her cells vulnerable to light. Then the doctors shine a light on the tumor for 10 to 45 minutes, or they use a flexible tube called and endoscope if the tumor is located inside the body. Adding on, sometimes the tumor is located on an organ that moves, thus making the Photodynamic therapy much more complicated. But Toshinori Fujie at Waseda University, Japan, developed a device that can be put between two sheets of sticky paper. When this device was experimented on mice the results were that this device worked and functioned properly. Thus making photodynamic therapy a way to finally cure cancer.
