 +
<br>Air pollution affects human beings, animals and the environment in a negative way. If we don't stop air pollution, then there is a possible chance we will get ill and possibly die.
 +
<br> According to national geographic, “ It can make people’s eyes burn and make them have difficulty breathing. It can also increase the risk of lung cancer...Short-term effects, which are temporary, include illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis. They also include discomfort such as irritation to the nose, throat, eyes, or skin.”
 +
<br> To add on, “ Sometimes, air pollution kills quickly. In 1984, an accident at a pesticide plant in Bhopal, India, released a deadly gas into the air. At least 8,000 people died within days. Hundreds of thousands more were permanently injured.”
 +
<br> Air pollution also affects the animals and the environment, specifically, “ When acidic air pollutants combine with water droplets in clouds, the water becomes acidic. When those droplets fall to the ground, the acid rain can damage the environment. Damage due to acid rain kills trees and harms animals, fish, and other wildlife. Acid rain can destroy the leaves of plants. When acid rain soaks into the ground, it can make the soil an unfit habitat for many living things. Acid rain also changes the chemistry of the water in lakes and streams, harming fish and other aquatic life.”
 +
<br> Moreover, “ Air pollution particles eventually fall back to Earth. Air pollution can directly contaminate the surface of bodies of water and soil. This can kill crops or reduce their yield. It can kill young trees and other plants.”
 +
<br>

Air pollution is increasing every day and we should stop it before it gets worse. After all, we are part of the reason there is air pollution.

== Wave pf addiction linked to fentanyl worsens as drugs, distribution, evolve ==
 
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.

 +
<br>Tornadoes are very dangerous natural disasters and we have to be careful. 
 +
<br> According to the article, “ A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground. It's often portended by a dark, greenish sky. Black storm clouds gather. Baseball-size hail might fall. A funnel suddenly appears, as though descending from a cloud. The funnel hits the ground and roars forward with a sound like that of a freight train approaching. The tornado tears up everything in its path.”
 +
<br>To add on, “Massive tornadoes, however—the ones capable of widespread destruction and many deaths—can roar along as fast as 300 miles (480 kilometers) an hour.”
 +
<br> Additionally, “Extremely high winds tear homes and businesses apart. Winds can also destroy bridges, flip trains, send cars and trucks flying, tear the bark off trees, and suck all the water from a riverbed.”
 +
<br.> Finally, “ High winds sometimes kill or injure people by rolling them along the ground or dropping them from dangerous heights. But most tornado victims are struck by flying debris—roofing shingles, broken glass, doors, metal rods.”
 +
<br>These evidence demonstrate how  the dangerous Tornadoes are, you can get killed by it. So next time, there is a tornado, get shelter and be careful.

 +
<br>Dogs and Humans share many qualities and they are just like us. They have feelings and share some of the things we like. According to the article, “Dogs can read facial expressions, communicate jealousy, display empathy, and even watch TV, studies have shown. They've picked up these people-like traits during their evolution from wolves to domesticated pets, which occurred between 11,000 and 16,000 years ago, experts say. Social eavesdropping—or people-watching—is central to human social interactions, since it allows us to figure out who's nice and who's mean”. 
 +
<br>And also, “According to a study published in August in the journal Animal Behaviour, our dogs listen in too. Now, a new study suggests dogs also follow human gazes into blank space—but only if they're untrained.”
 +
<br>Moreover,  “Dogs have personal preferences just like humans do. Dogs have favorite foods, toys and even people. Each dog is different in their likes and dislikes and while some seem to like everything and everyone, others might be very picky.”
 +
<br> Lastly, “Food is love, for people and dogs alike. We are both a social species and much of our social interactions revolve around food. This is true for wild canids as well. While we don’t share all of our food with our dogs at home, we can share the love for a delicious meal and snack.”
 +
<br>Even though dogs are animals and we are humans, we share similar qualities with them.

 +
<br>Black footed ferret is also endangered. “Despite their growing numbers, the black-footed ferret is still threatened, primarily due to the shrinking numbers of their main prey: prairie dogs. Black-footed ferrets heavily rely on the presence of prairie dogs for food and for shelter. Due to habitat loss and a strain of prairie dog plague, the ferrets' main source of food is dwindling.”
 +
<br>And also, “Populations are on the rise due to conservation efforts arounds the world and strict hunting laws. However, habitat loss continues to threaten wild pandas.”
 +
<br>Finally, “A Hawaiian monk seal swims in the French Frigate Shoals in the northwestern Hawaii. Monk seals have become critically endangered because of increased ocean pollution, coastal habitat loss, and fishing gear that entangles them.

<br>If we don't save these animals, they are going to be extinct and we will never see them again.

== Trump crosses another line ==
 
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.

Trump has made a decision that could affect him in the future but I just wonder what will the two candidates expose or may?

==Larry David's Holocaust joke on SNL: bad taste, or just bad comedy==
 
  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.

  Dogs are a man's best friend but do we know as much as them? Dogs have been living and existing for a long time but we don't know how long they existed. Researchers have discovered a stone in which shows a figure that stands out as a typical dog.  However the picture on the stone has no sign of when it was made.

== Weird facts about your dreams P1==
 
  Scientists have discovered many things about our strange but yet interesting dreams. Dreams are different from real life by creating a different body in your dream, giving the ability to do anything, and reviews your memories. 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.

This movie contains multiple actors you may have remembered or not. This movie will come out in December 15 and maybe be successful. This could be as good as the Force Awakens or even better.

    People have been thinking of which company is better, Samsung or IPhone. Obviously Apple has more customers however, Samsung is almost just as good. In customers Apple has way more customers ad supporters. But Samsung is more advanced due to the fact they have a screen that bends! This short summary and will continue later on but for now I want to state that both companies have their advantages and talents.
 
 
 
 
== The Maze Runner ==
 
  The bestselling novel series, The Maze Runner is creating more movies. The first movie of The Maze Runner was a good or successful movie. This encouraged the author to allow  a studio to make more movies relating to the story. People didn't like the movie as much as the book but soon more movies came in to make the series more famous. Now the studio is working on a new movie called The Death Cure which is going to be released in 2018.

But there's one thing people looked for it for decades and still didn't find the hidden city. Well there's something you should know about Atlantis its FAKE.

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. However the author of the book had no intention to publish it but was forced by her mother. However this book is still read today and is very entertaining for the audience.
 
 
 
 
 
== Future productions ==
 
    Lets admit it we people are still not satisfied with the technology we have right now. Well now you don't have to wait that long anymore. Virtual reality, often confused with augmented reality, will be more realistic using new technology with technology which can enhance your experience. Now gamers will have something to experience. These systems may come out in early 2020. These systems may cost more than $1500 which can leave you penny less. But these systems will guarantee satisfaction and is very realistic with a 360 degree view.

== 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}

Air pollution affects human beings, animals and the environment in a negative way. If we don't stop air pollution, then there is a possible chance we will get ill and possibly die.
According to national geographic, “ It can make people’s eyes burn and make them have difficulty breathing.

Air pollution is increasing every day and we should stop it before it gets worse. After all, we are part of the reason there is air pollution.


                                                                                                                                    Tornadoes


Tornadoes are very dangerous natural disasters and we have to be careful.
According to the article, “ A tornado is a violently rotating column of air that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground. It's often portended by a dark, greenish sky. Black storm clouds gather. Baseball-size hail might fall. A funnel suddenly appears, as though descending from a cloud. The funnel hits the ground and roars forward with a sound like that of a freight train approaching. The tornado tears up everything in its path.”
To add on, “Massive tornadoes, however—the ones capable of widespread destruction and many deaths—can roar along as fast as 300 miles (480 kilometers) an hour.”
Additionally, “Extremely high winds tear homes and businesses apart. Winds can also destroy bridges, flip trains, send cars and trucks flying, tear the bark off trees, and suck all the water from a riverbed.” <br.> Finally, “ High winds sometimes kill or injure people by rolling them along the ground or dropping them from dangerous heights. But most tornado victims are struck by flying debris—roofing shingles, broken glass, doors, metal rods.”
These evidence demonstrate how the dangerous Tornadoes are, you can get killed by it. So next time, there is a tornado, get shelter and be careful.


                                                                                                                                      Dogs are similar to us


Dogs and Humans share many qualities and they are just like us. They have feelings and share some of the things we like. According to the article, “Dogs can read facial expressions, communicate jealousy, display empathy, and even watch TV, studies have shown. They've picked up these people-like traits during their evolution from wolves to domesticated pets, which occurred between 11,000 and 16,000 years ago, experts say.

And also, “According to a study published in August in the journal Animal Behaviour, our dogs listen in too. Now, a new study suggests dogs also follow human gazes into blank space—but only if they're untrained.”
Moreover, “Dogs have personal preferences just like humans do. Dogs have favorite foods, toys and even people. Each dog is different in their likes and dislikes and while some seem to like everything and everyone, others might be very picky.”
Lastly, “Food is love, for people and dogs alike. We are both a social species and much of our social interactions revolve around food. This is true for wild canids as well. While we don’t share all of our food with our dogs at home, we can share the love for a delicious meal and snack.”
Even though dogs are animals and we are humans, we share similar qualities with them.

                                                                                                                           Endangered Animals

There is numerous numbers of endangered species around the world.


According to the article, “Rapunzel, a Sumatran rhino, was rescued and lived at the Bronx Zoo until her death in 2005. Largely due to poaching, Sumatran rhinos are now on the brink of extinction, with fewer than 200 remaining in the wild.” Rhinos are not the only animals that are endangered.

Black-footed ferrets heavily rely on the presence of prairie dogs for food and for shelter. Due to habitat loss and a strain of prairie dog plague, the ferrets' main source of food is dwindling.”
And also, “Populations are on the rise due to conservation efforts arounds the world and strict hunting laws. However, habitat loss continues to threaten wild pandas.”
Finally, “A Hawaiian monk seal swims in the French Frigate Shoals in the northwestern Hawaii. Monk seals have become critically endangered because of increased ocean pollution, coastal habitat loss, and fishing gear that entangles them.
If we don't save these animals, they are going to be extinct and we will never see them again.
