I added a little more……………
There was a sleeping bag it the corner of the tree house along with a bag full of food, and a few dried up leaves the place looked sad, which is how I feel, sad because my parents are gone, sad because by the looks of things nothing will be the same again, but I was glad to have Ryan here along with two VERY pretty girls. I remind myself to stop. These girls were not your typical girls, they were the ‘Normal-looking and acting till a zombie apocalypse then they’re not afraid to kick butt’ kind of girls. Emily’s hair had come out of her bun, she must’ve realized that it was a mess,
“Hey Ava, do you have a hair brush, because I could seriously use one right now?” Ava nodded, and reached into her backpack, she pulled out a blue plastic hairbrush, and gave it to Emily. She brushed it and put it up into a ponytail. Ava was pacing back and forth, clearly thinking of something…but what she was thinking? Was she thinking of a way for everything to go back to normal? No she doesn’t seem that smart, I mean she’s smart, but not enough to be able to create something to help us…or was she that smart? Ava finally stopped and said something completely random,
“Excuse me?” Ryan said,
“We have to go to the school! There’s bound to be someone in there! Or trapped in there!” Emily put her hand on Ava’s shoulder, a look of sympathy on her face,
“Ava, I wish you were right, but there’s no point, you were lucky enough to find us, I don’t think we’ll have that kind of luck again.” Ava was a stubborn girl, I knew she refused to believe that we were the only one’s left, I would have probably let her down gentler than Emily. Ava looked like she was gonna cry, she’d been through a lot, she lost her mom and worst of all she had watched what happened, which makes it even harder for her.
“Geese Emily do you have to be so harsh?” Ryan said,
“Yeah Emily, come on, she’s been through enough she just wanted a little bit of hope, and here you go crushing that little sliver of hope!” I say,
“Well I didn’t mean to be such a dream crusher but it’s true!” Ava, really looked like she really was gonna cry now, she goes out of the tree house and down the rope ladder, she starts to run,
“Great, thanks Emily!” I say, I take off after Ava, I almost lost her a couple of times but I always found her again. I was mad at Emily, why would she say something like that to such a nice girl like Ava, Emily doing this makes me wonder, if she has feelings. Ava finally collapses by a tree at the end of the park, she puts her head in her hands and she begins to cry, hard, very hard. She hears me, and looks up, her face is tearstained and her eyes are already puffy,
“What are you doing here?” She asks,
“I came to make sure you were ok,” I say,
“Well I’m not, so just go!” I sit down beside her,
“I’m not leaving, so you can either talk to me or just ignore me, but either way I’m staying,”
“I’ll talk to you, I guess,” Ava said,
“You don’t sound to positive,” I say, she smiles a little, but then frowns again,
“Good” I smile at her, her milky chocolate eyes study me,
“You want to talk about it?” I ask,
“Sure,” She says,
“So what happened exactly?” I ask,
“Mom was telling me to get up, she said that they were coming, I didn’t know what she was talking about but I knew better than to argue with her. Once I had packed my stuff and got dressed she told me what was happening, I was so scared but I knew that as long as she was with me I would be safe. Then these zombies, circled us, mom throw a rock at one zombie it fell down, but kept going I was able to get out of the circle but mom wasn’t so lucky, I watched in horror as they teared at her flesh,” Ava paused, she must’ve been seeing all of this again, the zombies tearing at her mom’s flesh, her fear, just thinking about it made my skin crawl,
“I was so scared that I was on my own, until I met you guys. What’s your story?” Ava asked,
“I was in my room, and I heard something downstairs so I, went to go to check on my parents, they had the Coronavirus thing and I was taking care of them, they were in the kitchen, and when I went in there, I saw that they were zombie long story short, I locked them in a closet” Ava laughed a little, but immediately she got sad again, her eyes were getting teary, I pull her into a hug, and say,
“It’s going to be ok, as soon as we set Emily straight we’ll go to the high school, and maybe see if we can find someone there, ok?” She nods, and she begins to cry again, I hold her close rocking her back and forth and saying,
“It’ll be ok, it’ll be ok,”
Ava and Jason were gone for a really long time, Ryan had just gotten done lecturing me about what I had said to Ava, I was really sorry about that, it’s just I tend to blurt things out sometimes and it gets me into a lot of trouble.
My assignment was to write a book report on The Railway Children, Bobbie (the eldest) just had figured out what happened to their father, he was framed for being a spy for some other country and so he was put in jail, but Bobbie knew that their father didn’t do it. So told her mother that she knew and her mother told her not to tell the other children, (Peter the middle kid and Phyllis the youngest) Bobbie (also known as Roberta, but everyone else calls her Bobbie) promises not to tell the others.
One day the children are going up on the hills to watch some races, and have a picnic. There was this one person that they called the Hound In The Red Jersey, he was this older kid, whose name was Jim. While he was running in the tunnel he tripped over some wire, and hurt his leg, Peter and Phyllis went to go get help, while Bobbie stayed with Jim, once they got help they took him to The Three Chimneys (their house) and their mother helped him to bed. Bobbie went to get the doctor, the children stayed downstairs while the doctor fixed Jim’s leg. Later the mother called Jim’s grandfather (who so happened to be the old gentleman) so also called Jim’s school teacher, and for reasons I do not understand she also sent them a letter, I’m guessing to let them know he’s ok.
Later in the story Bobbie had sent a letter to the old gentlemen asking him if he knew anything about their father. At the end of the story the father returns, now that they had caught the actual person who had committed a crime.
So I had did a post called A Story, well I have added on to the story that I did. Hope you Enjoy!
A girl with chocolate brown hair charges out of the next aisle, she comes at me and tackles me.
“Ahhh!” I yell, she had a baseball bat with nails pointed at my face,
“Get this freaky chick off me!” I yell, Jason and Emily pull the girl off of me. She fought them swinging her bat around,
“Let me go! You stupid dirty zombie!” she said, she seemed mad like she had a score to settle with the zombies.
“I’m not a zombie!” Jason said, she turned to face him,
“OMG! Your human!”
“Yes I’m human” Jason said calmly,
“I’m so sorry, I’m not usually like this, I’m just freaked out and and my mom she’s gone those stupid brain eating monsters killed her!” And I thought you were one of them so, I tried to…to kill you I’m so so sorry”
“It’s ok, no hard feelings” I smiled at the girl, she was really freaked out. I felt bad for her. But I was also very scared of her. Anyone who has a baseball bat with nails in the end of it should NOT I repeat NOT be messed with. Period. End of discussion.
“What’s your name?” Emily asks,
“Ava, what’s yours?”
“I’m Emily, this is Jason and the guy you tried to kill is Ryan” I give a slight wave, Ava takes a deep breath to try to calm down.
“Again I’m so so sorry” she says,
“It’s fine I’m still alive right?” she nods, “See we’re good!” I say,
“So, what now?” Jason asks,
“I don’t know? Maybe we should find shelter?” Emily says,
“Already done!” Ava says with a smile, she puts her scary baseball bat back into her sheath and let’s hope that it stays there until we come across a zombie
“So where is this shelter?” I ask,
“At the park,” Ava said, she started to walk off, we walk of after her,
I walked out into the parking lot, I’m now not the only one left, I saw these kids before at school, but I was always keeping to myself, I never really wanted to talk to anyone at the school. They would spread rumors, that just hurt others. So I tended to stay in the shadows. But now more than ever I was happy to see other people. For one slight moment I felt a flash of hope, then the flash was gone, now even if we live we still are the only ones in the whole messed up plant. I took a good look at all of the vehicles, I knew how to hot wire, I just needed the perfect car or truck. Whatever caught my eye, finally I saw a big red truck. Perfect I walk over to it, there was someone inside, no wait that’s a zombie,
“Ok how am I going to do this,” I say aloud, oh I know! I climb in the bed of the truck then I climb onto the roof, I lay on my stomach and grab the handle. The door comes open and the zombie tumbles out, he gets up and starts to head to the others. Who were not there a second ago. I jump down pull my bat out, I hit the zombie,
“Hey! Ugly!” I say, the thing moans and comes after me,
“I really didn’t think this through” I said as I ran, the others got in the truck and started it, they chased after me and the zombie. Ryan opens the passenger door,
“Jump in!” He says, I give him a look, but what choice do I have? Ok this is going to be harder than I thought. I grab the handle in the inside of the truck, after a few failed attempts I’m in. I slam the door closed, lean back in the seat and sigh,
“I don’t think I came prepared for an zombie apocalypse” I say, Ryan stops the truck,
“I don’t think any of us where prepared for this,” Jason says,
“Why did you stop the truck? Is something wrong?” I ask, Ryan looks at me,
“I’m not the best driver and I don’t want to get us killed just because I can’t drive” He gets out, “Anyone know how to drive? And is good at it?” He asks,
“I do,” Jason says,
“Good, then you take the wheel” Ryan and Jason change places, I hope Jason wasn’t lying about knowing how to drive, otherwise we were going to be in some serious trouble. Jason drives us back to the tree house where I had made my camp for the night, we all get out and climb the rope ladder,
There was a sleeping bag it the corner of the tree house along with a bag full of food, and a few dried up leaves the place looked sad, which is how I feel, sad because my parents are gone, sad because by the looks of things nothing will be the same again, but I was glad to have Ryan here along with two VERY pretty girls. I remind myself to stop that, these girls were not your typical girls, they were the ‘Normal-looking and acting till a zombie apocalypse then they’re not afraid to kick butt’ kind of girls. Emily’s hair had come out of her bun, she must’ve realized that it was a mess,
“Hey Ava, do you have a hair brush, because I could seriously use one right now?” Ava nodded, and reached into her backpack, she pulled out a blue plastic hairbrush, and gave it to Emily
My assignment for today was to write an essay on how I think The Railway Children should end. So let’s get down to business, So I guess I would want The Railway Children to end with the children finding their father, he was there at the beginning of the book but then he disappeared and I really want them to find their father. Right now it’s just the three kids and their mother and it would be nice if they could get their father back from wherever he is.
Chemistry began as alchemy, Alchemists has formula for secret opium elixirs. The formula was rediscovered in the 1700s. Surtuner apprenticed for a pharmacist, he invented morphine from opium. Morphine comes from purifying opium, it pretends to be an endorphin. Which blocks pain signals. Morphine is one of the most potent pain relievers. It was useful for a variety of problems, it was named after the Greek God of dreams. A famous chemist finally noticed one of them, he did experiments on dogs. Then he tested it on himself and others.
Bastille Bouchon, was the son of an organ maker. They used cam to make the pipes sing (the organ pipes). Bouchon applied the cam patterns to the loom in 1725. Vaucanson improved this design by adding a cylinder. Jacquard combined these previous attempts 50 years later. Jacquard loom automatically produces complex woven patterns. “Programmable” cards create the thread patterns. The loom reduced labor costs and made expensive clothes cheaper. The loom was invented in 1804, but took some time to catch on. Jacquard was handsomely rewarded by Napoleon. Factory owners installed the Jacquard loom.
Different cultures have different world views. The compass had different effects in different cultures. Their worldviews dictated it’s usage. Their worldviews have five parts:
Everything in the cosmos is connected through Ma’at, most people had to serve the Pharaoh. The rules of Ma’at required people to be social. Judgment: based on how life was lived. Times were cyclical repeating creation and fall, over and over.
All of the cosmos were connected: “Tao”. People were little copies of the universe. The rules of life weren’t logical. Alchemy was used to altinn “enlightenment” . Their time was cyclical: flowing like a river.
They believed in tons of gods, the elite would lead the commoners into a better life. The goal was to live a virtuous life, worshiping family gods kept them alive in the afterlife. History was cyclical and time eternal.
God is separate from his creation. Man was made in the image of God. Man obey God’s Bible-revealed commandments. Christ returns on judgment day. Time and history will and after all Christ enemies are conquered.
The “ah ha!” moment. John Napier developed a critical mental image. Joseph Priestley investigated bee vats. Edward Jenner noticed that milkmaids don’t get smallpox.
Breaking away from established opinions. Vesalius taught human anatomy differently than all other professions, He noticed when Galen’s predictions were wrong. He realized Galen never used a human corpse. Kepler’s breakthrough was trying an ellipse instead of a circle, he assumed others had already tried it. Dr. Mary Schweitzer discovered blood vessels in “fossilized” dinosaur bones. Other scientists simply assumed that was impossible. Their world view prevented them from making it impossible. Their worldview presented them from making this discovery.
The heliocentric theory was resisted by church authority. It contradicted Aristotle’s philosophy. Vesalius’ anatomy contradicted Galen’s anatomy. He was cocked and faced ridiculous arguments from influential authorities. Mar Schweitzer’s discovery was a blessing and a curse. She was shunned initially by her peers. Labor- saving inventions attracted angry mob violence. The resistance and adversity didn’t stop the inventors.
Inventions make our labor more efficient. A series of inventions improved fabric production overtime.
I wrote a story I’m not done with it, it’s about and zombie apocalypse the that reason everyone is turning into zombies is because of COVID- 19. Here is part of the first chapter, I will add more later but I’m posting this so you guys can tell me what you think.
I woke to the sound of my mom telling me to get dressed and pack some clothes, I sit up and ask sleepily,
“Why, mom it’s one o’clock it’s not even time to get up!”
“There’s no time! Get up there coming!” mom said,
“No time for talking, just do what I say!” I saw fear in my mom’s eyes, I hadn’t seen her look like that since dad left, she begged him to stay, but he didn’t she didn’t know what she was going to do with a four year old girl by herself she needed someone else to help luckily she found it: my grandma, my grandma help mom out until she was back on her feet. I quickly get dressed and pack some clothes in my backpack, I slip on my brown leather jacket, and put on my lace-up boots. I brush my hair and put into a braid, I throw my brush into my backpack.
“Out the window hurry!” My mom says, I open the window. It’s still dark outside, everything is quiet, until I hear it, a low moaning sound, I see our neighbor shuffle across his yard, but it isn’t really our neighbor, something is wrong, so very wrong with him.
“Mom what’s going on?” I ask,
“Ava honey, do you know of COVID-19?” My mom says,
“Yes, it’s supposed to be a very serious virus” I reply,
“Well honey, it’s a lot worse than we thought,”
“Mom what are you saying?” I say, fear rising in my voice,
“I’m saying, that this virus is turning people into zombies”
“We gotta get out of here, but where will we go?” I say,
“We’ll figure that out later for now let’s get out of here” We jump out of the window, we take off in a run. I hear more moaning, soon we’re surrounded by zombies,
“Mom!” I scream,
“I know, honey I know!” she says, mom picks up a rock and throws it at a zombie, it falls down, and doesn’t even try to get up it just crawls towards me and mom,
“Ava! Run!” Mom says, I run, I get out of the zombie circle, and look back,
“Mom! Come on!” I yell,
“No honey go, go! Find a safe place, go be free!” I watch in horror as the zombies close in on mom, they start to tear at her flesh,
“MOM!” I scream,
“Ava, I love you now GO!” I run, hard til I come to the three way store, it supplies sportswear, food, and tools. I go in and grab a wooden baseball bat, then I go to the tools aisle. I grab a hammer and some nails, I hammer the nails in the bat, and make it pointy on the end. It’s a perfect weapon. I find some sleeping bags and grab one, I find another bag and I sling it over my shoulder, I stock the bag with food, hopefully this will last me. I run out of the store and go to the park, where I know right between two trees is a giant tree house that will fit four people in it, I remember when mom used to take me to the park. I loved this tree house so much, we would play in it for hours. I climb the rope ladder when I’m on the deck I pull the rope ladder up so nothing else can get in. I spread out the sleeping bag and lay down on it, but I can’t sleep. I wanted mom, but she was gone, I was the only one alive, the only one who is still human at least that I know of. I cry myself to sleep.
I was just setting in my room chilling not do much and that’s when I hear something downstairs, I open the door to my room,
“Mom, dad? You guys ok? Do you need more chicken broth?” My parents had gotten the coronavirus thing and were very sick. I make my way downstairs. My partes are in the kitchen,
“I guess they needed more chicken broth after all” I mumble, I go into the kitchen, wow who died here? Then rotted for two thousand years! It smelled bad in here, I look at my parents but they’re not my parents, their skin is green, and their moaning.
“Wow I guess you guys are sicker than I thought!” I say, I run back into the living room and grab the broom that was nearby. My parents shuffle into the living room, I whack my dad in the head with the broom, he moans some more,
“Listen I love you guys, but I don’t like the idea of becoming whatever you are right now” I say, I shove my parents in a closet, run upstairs and I pack some clothes, I run back downstairs and all the way to my buddy Ryan’s house.
I knew something was wrong the moment I saw my parent’s green skin and they were moaning, so I did what any typical teenage boy would do if his parents were green skinned and moaning, I locked them in the bathroom. Someone rang the doorbell, I opened it very carefully, I saw a figure with dark brown hair and a wild look in his eyes, oh wait, it’s Jason never mind there’s no red alert we’re all good.
“Hey what’s wrong?” I ask,
“My parents are… are zombies! They had the coronavirus thing, and now they’re zombies! They’re green skinned, and moaning!”
“No way, you too!” Dude this is bad very bad, we have to get out of here!” Jason nods, he follows me to my room, I pack some clothes and we head out to the front door. On our way to the store we ran into a girl from our school, I think her name is Emliy. Her black hair was put up in a messy bun, she look really scared,
I ran into two guys from my school,
“Ok tell me if I’m going crazy but is this virus turning people into zombies!” I say, they both nod, one of the guys with black hair speaks up,
“Yeah, it’s freaky,”
“I agree” said the other guy with dark brown hair.
“Do…do you think we’re the only ones left” I ask,
“I don’t know, but I don’t like to be out in the open like this. Let’s find some shelter, and in the morning, we should go to the park, there’s a tree house, we’ll be safeer in there” said the dark haired guy,
“I’m Emliy, what’s your name?” I ask,
“I’m Jason and this is Ryan” Says Jason, I followed the guys to the store, where we stocked up on food and some hand made weapons,
“You two rest, I take the first watch” Says Ryan,
“No I’ll take the first watch” Jason said, they both get into an argument about who should take the first watch. I sigh,
“Enough! I’ll take the first watch you two sleep!” They agreed, I knew how to take charge, I didn’t know these two. All I knew is that they went to my school. They didn’t know me but they knew that I was dead serious.
I open my eyes only to see that it’s day, I get up a stretch. My stomach grumbles, I open my bag and find some pop tarts, I eat them all though I rather have eggs and bacon. Today was supposed to be a school day, but by the looks of things there’s not going to be a school day. I put my bat into a homemade sheath I had made earlier since I could sleep. I drop the rope ladder and climb down it, hopefully zombies can’t climb. I walked out of the park, and back down to the store, I wanted some bottled water. When I go into the store I hear someone, I go into the aisle next to the one where I hear the noise, I pull my bat out prepared to attack, I was angry at the zombies, for eating my mother, and I was going to take my anger out on these brain eating bozos! I charge, out into the next aisle,
“Ahhh” I yell.
A girl with chocolate brown hair charges out of the next aisle, she comes at me and tackles me.
“Ahhh!” I yell, she had a baseball bat with nails pointed at my face,
“Get this freaky chick off me!” I say, Jason and Emliy pull the girl off of me. She fight them swinging her bat around,
“Let me go! You stiuped dirty zombie!” she said, she seemed mad like she had a score to settle with the zombies.
“I’m not a zombie!” Jason said, she turn to face him,
“OMG! Your human!”
Today I just stared 6th grad English! I already have an assignment: Write one page on the topic of your choice. So I choose Percy Jackson.
I chose the topic to write about the book Percy Jackson, I chose this topic because this is one of my most favorite book series, there are at least three different series, I’m currently reading the second book from the second series and just like the first book I have mixed emotions first I’m mad then I happy then I’m mad again, because Percy is at Camp Jupiter, a Roman camp for demigods. Demigod: half god half mortal. Like I said it’s a Roman Camp. Percy is from a Greek Camp. Camp Half Blood. He shows up with no memory, the only thing he remembers is Annabeth, his girlfriend. He doesn’t know who he is or where he came from, it annoys me. I wish I could just go into the story and put him back where he belongs. But that is not going to work, so I’m just going to have to keep reading and see what happens. But as always Rick Riordan has an amazing sense of humor, example,
He managed to swivel sideways to avoid breaking his legs, on impact. The snack platter skittered across the roof and sailed through the air. The platter went one way and Percy went the other. As he fell toward the highway, a horrible scenario flashed through his mind: his body smashing against an SUV’s windshield, some annoyed commuter trying to push him off with the wipers. Stupid sixteen-year-old kid falling from the sky! I’m late! – Percy- The heroes of Olympus- The Son of Neptune- Chapter 2- Page 14.
“Elections only happen in two ways,” Reyna said. “Either the legion raises someone on a shield after a major success on the battlefield- and we haven’t had any major battles- or we hold a ballot on the evening of June 24, the Feast of Fortuna. That’s in five days.”
Percy frowned. “You have a feast for tuna?”
“Fortuna,” Hazel corrected. – Percy- The heroes of Olympus- The Son of Neptune- Chapter 3- Page 41.
As Hazel marched down the hill, she cursed in Latin. Percy didn’t understand all of it, but he got son of a gorgon, power-hungry snake, and a few choice suggestions about where Octavain could stick his knife. – Percy- The heroes of Olympus- The Son of Neptune- Chapter 4-Page 59.
“Can’t grow on this, can you?” she yelled. Go away, you bunch of weeds! Leave me alone!”
“Schist,” said an angry voice from the grass.
Hazel raised her eyebrows. “Excuse me?”
“Schist! Big pile of schist!”
A nun at St. Agnes Academy had once washed Hazel’s mouth with lye soap for saying something very similar, so she wasn’t sure how to respond. -Hazel- The heroes of Olympus- The Son of Neptune- Chapter- 19- Page -218.
“Thanks for yelling. We wouldn’t have found you otherwise. How’d you hold them off so long?”
She pointed to the rock. “A big pile of schist.”
“Guys,” Frank called from the top of the rock. “You need to see this.”
Percy and Hazel climbed up to join him. As soon as Hazel saw what he was looking at, she inhaled sharply. “Percy, no light! Put up your sword!”
“Schist!” -Hazel- The heroes of Olympus- The Son of Neptune- Chapter- 20- Page -224.
“Inoculation” was around since the 1500s in the ottoman Empire. British woman brought the concept to Europe around 1725. Edward Jenner, born in 1749, he noticed something peculiar about milkmaids, Jenner began to vaccinate people with the cowpox virus. “Vaccine” is a cure of a disease. They are generally a weakened version of the actual disease. “Vaccine” comes from the cowpox virus (vaccna- means “from the cow”) Jenner wasn’t the first to make the connection between cowpox and smallpox but no one else made attempts to publicize the knowledge, and Jenner did. He conducted numerous trials to convince the Royal Society. The vaccine was introduced in America in the 1780s. Administered in most nations by 1810.
Vlta was born in Italy in 1745, he was interested in electricity and the writing of Ben Franklin. He invented the Volta pistol. Luigi Galvani made frogs legs twitch. Volta built the pile to refute falvanis theory. The Voltaic pile delivered continuous electric current. Alternating stacks of copper and zinc plates and electrolyte. Batteries have (+) and (-) terminals Electrons flow from (-) to 9 (+). Positive ions accumulate on zinc. Loose electrons recombine with positive ions. Chemical reactions produce the electricity. Volta submitted a paper to the Royal Society.
Humphrey Davy was born in England in 1778. He became interested in chemistry and electricity. Davy experimented with laughing gas. Built his own voltaic piles to do experiments. Invented the arc light using very strong batteries. The arc light is extremely bright, an arc jumps between the two rods. Electrons flow through the air when the electric field is strong enough the electricity consumes the carbon rods. The light is bright enough to light up large buildings and streets. It didn’t take off quickly. The advancement of lighthouse technology created a market for the arc light. Limelight was invented in the 1820s. It could be used in lighthouses but how to transport the gas? Genervators by 1875 were built to power the arc light.
John Dalton was born in England in 1766. He loved education, he became a professor and a private tutor. He was fascinated by meteorology. Devised atomic theory after years of study and experimentation. He founded upon two laws. 1- All matter is made of atoms. 2- Atoms of the same element are the same. 3- Compounds are combinations of multiple elements. 4- Chemical reactions are elements being rearranged. Theory became the new universal language of chemistry. Dalton published his theory in a book (1808) Protected it to his friends in letters. He joined prominent scientific societies. Continued to tutor and teach his theory to others.
So this is a recipe that is like ice cream but instead you use snow! That is if it is snowing at your place! This is a tradition in my family it is very rear that we get snow, so we always kind of make a tradition out of it!
Put fresh snow in large mixing bowl (about 3/4 full) With an electric hand mixer beat in cream or half and half until mixture resembles soft serve ice cream. Add 1/2- 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and a pinch of salt, beat well. Enjoy!
