Very Deadly Oceans

       Is this our ocean, or pollution!       Microorganisms that live in water feed on biodegradable substances. When too much biodegradable material is added to water, the number of microorganisms increase and use up the available oxygen. This is called oxygen depletion.
When oxygen levels in the water are depleted, relatively harmless aerobic microorganisms die and anaerobic microorganisms begin to thrive. Some anaerobic microorganisms are harmful to people, animals and the environment, as they produce harmful toxins such as ammonia and sulfides. Text from: http://www.water-pollution.org.uk/oxygendepleting.html
     The ocean can be polluted in these ways. Such as, suspended matter, which is when some pollutants do not dissolve and then get stuck and then animals lose their habitats and possible even kill animals.
    Some consequences of ocean pollution are giant piles of floating garbage. Animals dying, animals losing their habitat and possibly even acid rain.
    Do you think we should rethink this? I do, this is horrible we are polluting our ocean that is a privilege to have, if we take advantage of having it soon we won't and, it will be covered in garbage, covered in dead animals, it won't be as pretty and beautiful as it was. Just stop and think, what are we doing to this world? The earth is dying, slowly but our kids kids will not see the same thing we see if we keep acting like this! This is just plain up terrifying if you think about it. Have you thought about it yet? What do you say? Do you! You                 want to change the world, then do something! Help the world to be a better place for us and you and your children's children and everyone!GPmap_2010_NOAAMDP.jpg
      The point source of pollution is, for ex: an oil spill. A point source has to be something you can point at and say “ that is the source of that pollution”.

     A non-point source is when there is so many sources of pollution you don't know where the source is or there is too many places it is coming from.

Drinking water pollution

                        Would you drink this!
 Deadly drinking water!

causes of drinking water pollution are and could be underground storage leakages, for ex: if there was a leak in one of the pipes in a water company. Read more at   https://www.epa.gov/ust/leaking-underground-storage-tanks-corrective-action-resources. And lastly, if you use a well then if your sewage pipes leak then your sewage water could leak and soak up into your water, and also if you you use fertilizer then the chemicals from the fertilizer could soak up and get into your well water read more at https://agwt.org/content/lawns-safe-wells .
    Drinking water can be polluted in these ways. Groundwater pollution caused by pesticide contamination from soil, ex: if you have a well the soil contamination could get in your water. Also if you live in somewhere where you don't have tap water then there could possibly be microorganisms in your water, also there could be Anaemia Arsenicosis Ascariasis, Botulism, Campylobacteriosis, Cholera ,Cryptosporidiosis, etc. read more at… http://www.lenntech.com/library/diseases/diseases/waterborne-diseases.htm .  And lastly nutrients that help plants grow and that can possibly be in fertilizers can occur in your drinking water. And also the  eutrophication, excessive richness of nutrients in a lake or other body of water, frequently due to runoff from the land, which causes a dense growth of plant life and death of animal life from lack of oxygen.
    The point source of pollution is, for ex: a leaking pipe. A point source has to be something you can point at and say “ that is the source of that pollution”.
     A non-point source is when there is so many sources of pollution you don't know where the source is or there is too many places it is coming from.
    We could stop this pollution by rethinking about the pipes we use. If there are leaks then lets buy new ones not just put some glue on it! Most people use plastic pipes and some use metal. We need more protective pipes, and cleaner pipes, what if we put filters in the pipes? And what if we used more metal pipes? This problem could potentially  kill a humongous amount of people if we don't fix it. Millions have already died in Africa of guinea worm because they don't have filters luckily the carter center has worked on it, and they have filters now. So what do you say, do you want the change?

SLEEP!!!!!

     Sleep, why do we sleep? How much sleep do we really need?
we all know most of us love sleep! but why do we sleep, is it to recharge are body or is it because we die at night or is it because we love sleep so much, do we really know why we sleep? well im here to tell you!We tend to think of sleep as a time when the mind and body shut down. But this is not the case; sleep is an active period in which a lot of important processing, restoration, and strengthening occurs. Exactly how this happens and why our bodies are programmed for such a long period of sleep is still somewhat of a mystery. But scientists do understand some of sleep's critical functions, and the reasons we need it for optimal health and wellbeing.
One of the biiger roles of sleep is to help us, i guess what you could call store away our memories. As we go about our day, our brains take in an incredible amount of information. Rather than being directly logged and recorded, however, these facts and experiences first need to be processed and stored; and many of these steps happen while we sleep. Overnight, bits and pieces of information are transferred from more tentative, short-term memory to stronger, long-term memory—a process called "consolidation." Researchers have also shown that after people sleep, they tend to retain information and perform better on memory tasks. Our bodies all require long periods of sleep in order to restore and "recharge", to grow muscle, repair tissue, and synthesize hormones.

Katniss Everdeens bow is elastic!

"Don't worry Prim, You know I am exceptional at the bow & arrow! she says confidently
"but I don't want you to get hurt," says Prim.
"Ok, I'll explain something to you. my bow has the elastic force and when I pull it back and then let it go the elastic force will shoot the arrow right into the person, and they will DIE"
"ok, I feel better about it just don't die for me, please..."
                                           





                                                           the end.....


The eruption was May 18, 1980, It killed 57 people. Mount Saint Helens erupted sideways which made a lot of destruction and it was very very harmful. In about 200-300 years it will pretty much be built back to the way it was before and may blow again... There are a couple pictures of mt. saint Helens before, after and during the eruption. The lava dome is rebuilding itself and the reason we know this is that is growing slowly, VERY SLOWLY...  and it smokes a lot, and it rumbles, and it forms and rumbles.     During the eruption...
        Before the eruption...     
      









                                                               
After the eruption...
                                                    
THE END.............

How I made a battery!

Hi dad, guess what we did in class today.
What did you do sweetie?
We made batteries!
That is very cool honey!
Yeah, it was but first ,we had to listen to Mr.Gonzalez and the rules and safety conditions! We could have gotten hurt from the copper sulfate if we did not listen but I did! 
Well, that's really cool, I wish I was there!
yeah, OK well after we listened to the rules and stuff then we made our battery with; zinc, copper sulfate, copper, led light bulb, a cup,boarder paper, and safety goggles of course.
hmm... sounds like you really had to be safe with the copper sulfate
yup! then we made the battery!
Coolie, sounds like you had a pretty awesome day, why don't you go tell you mom!
wait, i have to tell you how we made it!
OK, hurry though i have to go to work!
will do, OK so first we got goggles, then we went to go get the copper sulfate, i got the wire, copper, zinc, blotter paper, and rubber band.
then we put the blotter paper, zinc on one side and copper on one side, then rubber banded them together, the we attached the wires to the zinc (-) negative, and the copper (+) positive. then we put that in the cup of copper sulfate and the light bulb lit up. only for a little bit though.
well that sounds amazing i have yo go now see you after work.
