<br>Spiders might seem dangerous, and you might want to kill them on sight; but, spiders are mostly harmless and help the ecosystem.
 
<br>Spiders may be providing services like eating pests—some even eat other spiders.
 
<br>There’s even a species of jumping spider that prefers to eat blood-filled mosquitoes in African homes.
 
<br>Although they are generalist predators, apt to eat anything they can catch, spiders regularly capture nuisance pests and even disease-carrying insects.
 
<br>So killing a spider doesn’t just cost the arachnid its life, it may take an important predator out of your home.
 
<br>All in all, you shouldn't be afraid of harmless spiders.Spiders might actually be useful in your houses, for they can get rid of other annoying, yet more dangerous, insects lurking around.

          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.

<br> '''The Consequences of Zit Popping'''''
 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
<br>Popping a zit or a pimple may seem like the right thing to do, but it can cause you even more problems.
 
<br>By popping a zit, it will become an open wound, and potentially infectious bacteria will enter your body.
 
<br>You can get a scar and picking at or popping any zit makes permanent marks more likely by increasing inflammation.
 
<br>If you pop a zit and there is no infection or scar, you would still be spreading more zits around.
 
<br>Therefore you should pop zits because it will end up badly.

          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).

<br> '''Can Humans Die from Apple Seeds?'''''

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...
<br>Apple seeds are actually poisonous and can kill humans.
+
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.
<br> First, the amygdalin/poison, is accessible only if the seeds have been crushed or chewed; a whole unbroken seed will pass right through
+
Source: https://www.britannica.com/story/why-do-bananas-turn-brown
<br>But you would need a lot of crushed apple seeds.
+
-------
<br>When in the digestive system, this chemical degrades into highly poisonous hydrogen cyanide (HCN). A lethal dose of HCN can kill within minutes.
+
Article 5:
<br>The human body can process HCN in small doses, so a couple of chewed seeds are usually completely harmless.
+
          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.
<br>The average adult would need to eat anywhere from 150 to several thousand crushed seeds (depending on the apple variety) to be at risk of cyanide poisoning.

<br>All in all, apple seeds are only dangerous if you eat a whole lot of crushed seeds, which hopefully, will never happen.

          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.

          Oranges are low in calories and full of nutrients, they promote clear, healthy skin and can help to lower our risk for many diseases as part of an overall healthy and varied diet. Oranges are a popular fruit because of their natural sweetness, wide variety of types and diversity of uses from juices, face masks, and orange sliced candies.
<br>An international genetic study at least points in this direction. During the study, the scientists investigated the genetic material of more than 20,000 men. <br>Their data show that premature hair loss is linked to a range of various physical characteristics and illnesses.

Article 8: Book vs Internet Articles
Article4
+
          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
<br>Jeremy is a rare left-coiled snail

          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.
<br>Dr. Davison discovered him and wanted to know if the cause of the left-coiled shell was due to genetics or was an accident.

<br> Jeremy organs also had turned counterclockwise, which made it hard to mate with right-coiled snails.

          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.

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.

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.

          Many people are often curious if the number zero is an integer because it symbolizes nothing. A whole number is a number that has no remainder after dividing two numbers: the dividend and a divisor. Therefore, zero is a whole number. An odd number is a number when dividing by two it has a remainder. But, even numbers are the opposite: even numbers are when divided by the number two, the quotient has no remainder. Zero divided by two is just zero and has no remainder, so it is therefore an even number.
