'''Should You Yank Your USB?'''
  
----
+
The USB flash drive, a portable storage device, is not only known for storing information, but also
 +
a disgraceful warning for yanking the USB: “Disk Not Ejected Properly.” If you do yank out your USB improperly, the worst thing that could probably happen is corrupting one or two, if not all the files on your thumb drive. However, the chances of your yanking the USB out at the same time the device is transferring the data to the USB is very slim because the device may be using a write cache which only makes the process more efficient. The cache will actually write the data into the drive’s memory and tell you back that everything is done, even though your device is still transferring it in the background. This all happens in a matter of milliseconds, so unless you’re yanking your USB out almost instantly after you decide to transfer something, it is very unlikely something will be corrupted. Although there really is no harm in yanking out your USB, there is also no harm in waiting a few more seconds to eject it safely.

Many people sell drugs  to get money but do they understand what they are doing? According to the police a few days ago a person named Michelle MacLeod died from an overdose of a drug. The person who sold the drug to Michelle was Kevin Manchester. The police informed Kevin Michelle died from the overdose of the drug Kevin sold to him and died. Now Kevin at the age of 27 is at prison for selling the lethal drug and selling other drugs. So in the end Michelle is dead and Kevin is at prison, but be careful of what you sell or give to a person because the result of a person taking a lethal drug can be fatal.

This article states how President Trump once again crosses another line in which excited others. President Trump had breached tradition to meet two candidates for U.S. attorney both of whom will investigate President Trump in the future. This hasn't been Trump's first time speaking directly to a U.S. attorney candidate. Trump met Jessie Liu in which is confirmed as U.S. attorney for the district of Colombia.
 
Trump has made a decision that could affect him in the future but I just wonder what will the two candidates expose or may?

'''Rat Invasion Hurts Coral Reefs!'''
  
== Rep. Frederica Wilson skips votes in Washington as she faces 'racist and rude' threats ==
+
Rats are known to be a nuisance on land, but now they are indirectly damaging coral reefs. The cycle starts with seabirds feeding from the ocean and eliminating waste onto shore. As tides come in, the ocean sweeps the bird poop, which is rich in nitrogen, into the ocean, allowing sea life to thrive. When small fish populations grow, they feed on seaweed and keep coral reefs healthy. However, when researchers studied islands with rat infestations, seabird, fish and coral reef populations decreased while seaweed and rat populations increased. Rats were feeding on seabird eggs and chicks, which led to less nutritional poop for small fish, which led to a decrease in fish populations, which led to less maintenance of seaweed, and finally leading to seaweed overtaking coral reefs. After scientists studied these turn of events, they came to one conclusion: a species invasion.  
  This article explains what Rep. Frederica is handling, racist and rude threats. In the following it states Rep. Frederica S. Wilson skipping votes in Washington this week and a wave of threats come at her since she sparred with President Trump over the treatment of the widow of a soldier killed in Niger. This 74 year old lawmaker has got over a dozen threats this year. Now security officials review and follow up on thousands of threatening messages. The following have curses and bad language in them ''You're not going to impeach anybody, you f-- n--. In conclusion to this summary I want to state that Rep. Frederica Wilson was just trying to have a bit of a competition with President Trump and nothing else she is a hard working woman and shouldn't get threats.

== New York truck attack suspect charged with terrorism offense, FBI says he plotted to carry out attack for ISIS ==
 
  In Manhattan an attack was launched and killed 8 people. This was believed to have been planned weeks before carrying out the attack in the name of the Islamic state. The identified suspected attacker, Sayfullo Saipov had arrived in the country in 2010 through a diversity visa program. People believe Saipov was influenced by ISIS. But authorities are looking for a man named and identified as 32 year old Muhammad Kadirov, a connection to the attack but no role was played. According to charging documents, Saipov was inspired to carry out the attack after watching ISIS videos on his phone. This is what we know for know about the ISIS related attack information now we may gain more information in the future.

'''What Color is Your Fruit?'''
  
==Larry David's Holocaust joke on SNL: bad taste, or just bad comedy==
+
Scientists are developing a new wave of GMOs, determining the color of your next meal. People are generally skeptical when it comes to buying genetically modified foods, especially ones with altered colors. However, this new wave of fruits may not be as scary as they seem. “Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc. has engineered a pink pineapple that includes lycopene, an antioxidant compound that gives tomatoes their red color.” Even though this fruit is pending approval by the FDA, it should be safe, as the modification consists of a natural enzyme from tomatoes. Additionally, some gardeners produce conventional purple tomatoes which get their color from anthocyanins, an enzyme found in blueberries which have proven to have affects on cardiovascular disease and cancer. With this new generation of GMOs, no one can predict what color your fruit will be.
  Larry David had made inappropriate, insulting, racist, and sexual jokes last night on ''Saturday Night Live''. Larry David made jokes about the homeless, the blind, the ugly and Jewish sex predators. An example of thee jokes were Larry David '' if I'd grown up in Poland when Hitler came to power and was sent to a concentration camp, would I still be checking out women in the camp''. This quote he stated was offending to Jews due to the Hitler part of the joke and seems awfully sexual. Another example is that David said this quote ''In a 1994 episode of that hit comedy, Jerry Seinfeld and his girlfriend make out in a theater to ''Schindlers List'', which isalso parodied later on in the show''. This quote making out with his girlfriend is extremely sexual and is surprising to many other comedians out there. This comedy episode is surprising it even went on television due to the inappropriate messages.

== This Man Just Swam in Antarctic Waters in Next to Nothing ==
 
  Lewis Pugh has done a fatal act and he managed to survive swimming in the Antarctic waters. This wasn't Pugh's first act but this stunt he did could have killed him. Swimming in these temperatures could have caused hypothermia to him due to the fact the Antarctic waters are below -4 degrees Fahrenheit. Pugh even passed two elephant seals but also took him 19 minutes to swim one kilometer. If the water had not been salty Pugh wouldn't even have the ability to swim in those waters. Even though Pugh wants to accomplish acts like these he also wants to call attention to issues facing the world's oceans.

  We people thought sheep were dumb clueless animals until we were shown the truth about sheep. A research team were  about sheep and can they remember our faces. A sheep was involved and the experiment let the sheep recognize the photo and it was to do a quiz in which face was the right face the sheep saw. This experiment was done multiple times to get the results. But somehow the sheep got the right answers. Now we know we shouldn't judge something or a sheep by its cover or appearance.

  A lion cub had been found in Russia. The cub could have died by his/her cave's breakdown. The gender could be official in a few days or so but for now we have no information for its gender nor age of the frozen lion cub. Scientists can clone animals but could they clone extinct animals? There is going to be a lot more theories of what are they going to do with the frozen remain but could be answered in a couple of years. Furthermore this article could be updated later on and more answers could be found about the species of the extinct lion.

A study including 32 blind from birth, 27 late blind and 65 sighted men and women was done to see if blindness influences trust. All participants completed a standardized survey measuring their thoughts on other people being exploitative, or dishonest. Results showed that overall the blind participants generally had the same level of trust in others, as those with sight. Even though both groups portrayed the same social trust, both groups believed people are more exploitative, rather than dishonest. In addition, since the experiment included people blind from birth, the data illustrates how visual deprivation over a lifespan does not affect trust levels in others. Overall, this study conveys the insignificance of sight in one's level of trust in others.

During 2012 the most famous wolf, o6 was shot by a trophy hunter outside Yellowstone National Park. o6 was full of moxie and was a female alpha.o6 was 100 pounds, was attractive in coloration and was powerful. She usually wandered finding territory in which is very dangerous for wolves. Nor was o6 as dumb and wasn't as weak as the other wolves. She hunted by herself with no help whatsoever and had a hunting instinct. But lets all remember what she was and what she did and remember what a legend she was.

South Dakota has lost over 200,000 gallons due to its pipeline. This is an enormous problem due to the fact oil is valuable, expensive and is used for many things. The pipeline's protesters are arguing about the pipeline's construction because drinking water is at risk. The may have been spilled near crops, gardens and maybe a lake. This problem cannot be covered that easily and will take a lot of time and effort to fix this long pipe however construction may progress later to fix the pipe.

One thing you didn't know about your dreams is that you can imagine something I your dream by just looking at a picture before you sleep. However dreams could turn into nightmares if you were depressed, scared, nervous, regretful, and any negative emotions. This is very strange to know this about the cause and effect of dreams however, yet fascinating to me and more people.

== Why India's snake charming jobs are disappearing ==
 
  India has done many things but one of the most affordable items were handmade. Handmade businesses in India is decreasing rapidly. This is due to manufactured items made in factories or technology. A common item in India is MUM water, however this item is one of the most manufactured items in India and people are losing businesses due to people buying MUM water from other businesses. People are also using plastic bottles more than handmade bottles or cups. People are losing their businesses very quickly and are losing money. So the majority of India won't have any jobs or not a lot of money for them to survive.

== Swarms of millipedes ==
 
  Millipedes are nasty critters similar to a centipede. But millipedes come in swarms during mating season. One millipede can't protect itself while a swarm of a hundred can help each other survive. If a predator attacks the swarm disbands and runs away. After the predator is neutralized the millipedes make up the swarm once more. The millipedes don't usually attack but just wander around for food the rest of their lives, however I wouldn't recommend approaching a millipede they are ready to bite and kill any predator.

== The lost city of Atlantis ==
 
  From all the myths you heard about Atlantis you must be fascinated to know all about it. Atlantis was once an ordinary island in the ocean before it was covered by the ocean. Atlantis related to Greek philosophy and Greek gods such as Zeus, Hades, Hera, Nemisis , Athena, and many more. But the one god that we are focused on is Posiedon the ruler of water. The citizens of Atlantis were violent and merciless so the gods were angered so Posiedon and the gods caused earthquakes and tsunamis to sink Atlantis to the sea. The lost city of Atlantis has never been found but there are multiple Greek statues underwater which may lead to the lost city of Atlantis.

Lucasfilm also worked extremely long just to make this film so this movie could be a success. But, we have to wait and see the results so we don't know if this is going to be the best movie of the month or just a normal non exciting movie.

The book also was one of the best in the 1960s and also made a movie in 1983.  This book relates to people and gangs in the 1960s but has many dramatic scenes in the story than in the movie.

== Is the end of the world near? ==
 
    A lot of people theorized the end of the world however they were all wrong. The Aztecs used prophecies to predict the end of the world in 2012. So we have to understand myths and legends cannot give us the clearest answers. However a few scientists made a prediction that the Earth and another planet called Earth 2 would collide and cause destruction but again the human race is still alive. There has to be evidence to provide that the human race will be extinct. That is what I will explain in the next summary.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
== How the human race will die? ==
 
      People cant accept that they are all going to die so we have to help those people by slowing down those causes that will end us all. One way the Earth will die is by solar flares. Of course we are experiencing solar activity but most of our atmosphere on Earth is protecting us rom radiation but soon a solar flare maybe to big for our atmosphere to handle. Then we would be we would be exposed to solar radiation and eventually die. So we have to find a way to help block the Sun's radiation with a shield. {I don't mean a shield that stretches through the whole atmosphere since that is nearly impossible}

== Summer in 2018 ==
 
    People are enjoying the summer right now however some people just like the other seasons because of insects. You may not notice this issue if you are not living next to the dump but insects are all over the place in the summer. The hot weather plus the insects aren't good news. Now mosquitoes are becoming more active because of the warm weather and flies are buzzing all over the place for food. However we might as well agree we should go outside but with more protection. This means sunblock and a lot of bug spray. So enjoy your summer as much as you want but be aware of the danger lurking around you or your children.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
== Kids losing knowledge of school material ==
 
      Summer is a nice long break for people all over the world however it has its cons to kids also. Kids don't seem to do anything productive that can benefit them for the future. Instead all they do is play video games, play any sport, or hang out together. This is a huge problem to the world because once summer vacation is over schools across the world have to teach them the same thing last year for half of the school year. There should be more programs kids could go to in the weekends in which is needed for there future. If more programs for kids are made than teachers can teach kids more information throughout the school year and the kids would have a better chance in having a good future.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
== Amusement parks ==
 
    Amusement parks have been made over 70 years ago and are still popular today. Some amusement parks still active today range from 10 to 70 years of age. But of course they are still enjoyable to this day selling toys, popcorn, cotton candy and many more goods. But the most famous amusement parks are the ones with new rides coming every day. Some examples include Disney World, and Universal Studios.  The reasons why these places are soo attracting is because of their wonderful rides and their community.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
==  Specialized high schools in 3 years==
 
      We all know about the famous specialized high schools in the U.S.. Some in Brooklyn, some in Bronx but one thing they have in common is that they are all honorable schools with honorable students. Although these schools won't be so honorable in three years. The way they are honorable is by giving students an advanced education system and the SHSAT exam which gets kids in the school. Since the SHSAT is getting easier and easier there will be no purpose in trying to get in so the U.S. is going to get rid of the SHSAT test in three years.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
== The pros of the SHSAT being removed  ==
 
      There are not many positive outcomes for this topic but there are just a few common pros. One possible outcome is that the specialized high schools will be less racist. Some specialized high schools have a greater amount of one race than another so they want the race which they don't have much of. But if the SHSAT test would be removed they would have to  pick multiple random seats which may or may not have the race the school wants.  Another good outcome is that more students will be educated which may lead them to a better future. However it depends on the type of student enrolling into the school. Such as if a smart cooperative student enrolls she will most likely have a good future. However if a violent, uncooperative kid enrolls he may not have a bright future and may influence others to do the same thing. All in all removing the SHSAT would be a good opportunity for kids to learn but may negative effects to the school due to the uncooperative kids in the classes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
==    The cons of the SHSAT being removed  ==
 
    If the SHSAT would be removed I would cause problems to the specialized high school's career. The way this will be caused by is by students (troublemakers in particular) will cause the school to have a bad reputation. One single bad kid can mess up other peoples futures by influencing them bad behavior from themselves. Soon the school wont even be honorary or special. It will be an average high school which nobody will want to get into. The education system would fail and nothing good can effect the students. No discipline would stop the kids and soon the school would not that special in teaching their students.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
==Why summer I one of the most beloved seasons ==
 
      Summer is loved by many people around the world and is the most enjoyable season to people. To students summer is to kick back and relax. This includes traveling, playing video games, and playing sports. Adults have a different opinion on kicking back for a while since they still have to do a lot of work. But people still agree they can travel and relax a little while. They could go to amusement parks, zoos, etc. But everyone agrees that summer is a time to relax from everything you did the whole year.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
== Bed bug infestations ==
 
    We all hate bed bugs. Those tiny non winged forms of a mosquito are surely to make your skin itch. One bed bug can lay more than 20 eggs and they can reproduce even more eggs than before. This can result in getting rid of furniture, paying for an exterminator, and many things wasted. The way these pesky things get inside your homes is by them traveling or someone bringing them in your home. Either way bed bugs are the sure annoying and scary to look at once you get out of bed.
