News Type : National

Summary : In this article by Diane Christiansan , the extinct elephant birds egg was found in Buffalo Museum of Science. Apparently, this egg was in the museum since 1930. This egg was even bigger then the biggest egg that we have today! That’s a lot of omelets! The reason the egg was in the museum for all these years was because it was mislabeled.  They thought that this one was their only plaster egg. But then they found a plaster egg! The elephant bird went extinct in the 17th century. That was over 300 years ago! And the egg still looks as good as new!

Personal Response : I chose this article because I like history a lot. I’m fascinated with extinct species. I hope their are more articles like this to come.

Festo’s Bionic Flying Fox Bats Are Incredible

Title: Festo’s Bionic Flying Fox Bats And Somersaulting Robotic Spiders Are Incredible

Article Date : April 19th 2018

Summary:  In this article by Daksha Morjaria, a Germany company named Festo has reportedly created a robot version of fruit bats, also called flying fox. This robotic replica weighs 20 ounces and has a wingspan close to 90 inches.

The biggest challenge when creating this masterpiece is trying to copy its aerodynamic wings. Controlled by two motors, they contain a primary and secondary section that copies the bat’s movements as good as it can. “The models flying membrane if wafer-thin and ultra whilst also robust.” said Festo. It consists of two airtight films and a knitted elastane fabric, which are welded together at approximately 45,000 points.

Due to its elasticity, it stays almost uncreased, even when the wings are retracted. The fabric’s honeycomb structure prevents small cracks in the flying membrane from getting bigger. This means that the bionic flying fox can continue to fly even if the fabric sustains minor damage.

Personal Response : I chose this article because it is cool how throughout the years, mankind is starting to make more realistic robotic versions of animals! I really hope they make more robots that could help us in the future.

Tweet: A robotic bat! First the manta ray, then the dog Aibo, and now this? Sooner or later we are going to start making robotic flies!!! DAU #foxmeadowpride @dogonews.

Getting Splatoon 2 and youtube channel!!!!!!!!

Hey guys. I’m back. Sorry that I did not spend a lot of time doing the blog-posts lately. I’ve just been with my family this spring break and did not really have any time for blog posts. But enough chit-chat, lets get right into today’s post. As the title suggests, I am getting a new game. I’m pretty sure a lot of gamers out there know what Splatoon 2 .

And you can customize your Inkling and to online battles with ink guns. I will put the trailer here.

Video games are the best hobby.

Many people have different hobbies. Art,Cooking,Sports, even Math! But for me, the best hobby will always be videogames. People always say that video games are bad for you. But the way I see it, videogames are a path that anyone could take. The reasons I like video games are because  it helps with friends, it helps with stress relief, and most importantly,it gives you better hand coordination.

The first reason I think video games are the best hobby is because it helps with friends.  For example, one time, when my friend Nick came over to my house, he was all gloomy about the day he had. “ Hey Akif “ he said in a pessimistic voice. I could tell he was not having a really good day. “ Hey Nick, I just got a new game on my switch, want to play? “ I asked him. “ Sure” he replied. I showed him how to play and he ended up really liking the game. “ This is awesome! “ he yelled in and enthusiastic voice.I was really happy that he was not sad anymore. I think video games helps with friends is because I cheered him up. I think video games help with friends because we played well with each other.          

Not only do video games help with friends, but it also helps with stress. An example of that is, once, I was stressed after a basketball game. We had just lost and nobody had passed to me. It was like I was never even there. It was flatout a bad day. “ I wish I had just participated “  I told myself. So I just did what I would normally do. Play video games. I got out my console and started to play. I played for 20 minutes, and everything bad about my day turned to flames. My sister came into my room and said, “ How was your game “. “ What game? “ I replied. Video games help with stress because they calm you down. Video games help with stress because it keeps you occupied.

Perhaps the most important reason that video games are the best hobby is that it helps with hand coordination.  An example of this is when I wanted to learn to type fast. I used to always want to type fast. I used to see my dad type really fast and I wanted to do it to. But for some reason I just could not get it. “ Why can’t I do it like my dad can” I thought to myself.  So I started to storm the internet for a way to type fast. “ I can’t find anything! “ I said to myself. So for a break, I went on my computer to play online video games. And the next thing I know, I memorised all the keys from the video game. The next day at school, when I wrote something in the computer lab, I noticed that I started to notice that I was typing fast. “Is this really happening?” I told myself. I think that you should try to play computer games to improve your hand coordination. I think video games helps with had coordination because they help you memorize the keys fast. I think video games help you with hand coordination because it does not require much time to master as other methods.

 

So those are this reasons I think video games are the best hobby.This is important because people think that video games is a TV and a controller. But the way I see it, video games are a whole new world. It’s a world we have access to on a TV screen. Video games are something you should embrace as a child. It should be past on. But always remember this. There is a game for everybody.

Adorable Blue-Eyed robot teaches infants to communicate                                                                  

In this article by Sarah Benton Feitlinger, a robot named RAVE ( Robot Avatar Thermal Enhancement ) is helping infants to speak. I know what you are thinking. Why can’t the parents teach the babies how to speak. Though that is a good idea, but some parents cannot do this due to long schedules or if there child is deaf. So that is why they invented this robot. The learning process begins when the robots thermal cameras detect small changes in body temperature, with is associated with alertness. This, combined with the babies engaged expression on its face, causes the robot to turn its head and guides the baby’s attention to the computer screen. For example, if the baby points at the computer screen, the robot may say something, then the robot would put on a video that teaches the infant words in ASL, or English.

I chose this article because I know how it feels like to never have a family member around. I used to never have my father around. So this is for kids like me without any parents to help them speak. This robot is a life saver to the world. They even help deaf people. This helps all people. I think that the people that made this robot had empathy for all the kids out there. If this was in my time, we would have no need for school. I’m not saying that school should be canceled, but speece lessons are a definite no.

My vacation to Maui

For winter break I went to Maui in Hawaii. We had a great time. First we went to New Jersey to get to the airport. But we did not travel straight to Maui. We first went to los Angeles and then we went to the plane to Maui. The hotel we went to was called Hyatt regency.

The next day, we all went to the beach and explored around the hotel. And after my sisters went to the pool, me and my dad went to a sushi place.

The next day. I finally went to the pool’s water slide. Or so I thought. It was closed because of the time. So I tried to do the next day. But I could not because my family was going on a trip to Hana. If you don’t know, Hana is one of the main reasons people come to Maui. It’s supposed to be an  experience of a life time. It was pretty cool. They even had a stop that had a beach with black sand. Really, look it up. We had tacos on the way there. We were so tired when we got back at the hotel I could barely even walk.

KIRBY STAR ALLIES!!!

Hi everyone. Today I want to talk about Kirby Star Allies game for the Nintendo Switch.  This is a new game that I want to get for a detailed review. But let me tell you more about the game itself. Since the game has not come out yet, we don’t know the entire storyline. What we do know is the gameplay features.

First of all, it’s 2D. So no 3D!  Secondly, there is a new feature called “make a friend”. Basically, Kirby, the main character, could make new friends by throwing a heart at them. You could also use their power and customize your weapon.

I’ll show you a video on the gameplay so you can see for yourself. The release date is March 16th. This looks like a great game, so I’ll keep an eye on this when it comes out.

See you on the next post!

Working with Mr.DeBerry in non-fiction.

Hey guys, I’m back!!! Sorry I took so long to do another post. Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to 2018. I have a lot to talk about. But I will be covering that in the next post. Right now, I’m here to talk about a project I was doing in my class. It’s basically a weather project. We paired up with people in  Ms. Burgers class and made groups and studied a natural disaster.

 

So let me tell you about what I liked about the project. I liked how we all worked together really well and got the project done. We did our best with the research and tried really hard the fix the slide. We each had our own opinion on how to arrange the slides. In the end we gathered up all of our research and it started to all make sense. I think we did a very good job and hope we do something like this in the future.

 

I think we could have improved it by giving it more details. We rushed through so we did not have any time to put some fun facts, puns, or pictures to help us remember it. I think if we had more time to work on it, we could have added a lot more information to the slide. We could have included better text features and should have gave more videos that could have helped the audience understand better.  So if I ever, ever, ever have any other projects like this one, I would like to include the things that I said I would in that passage.
