“Mixed Breed Mutt’s Quest to Save Other Dogs Turns into a World ‘Woof’ Tour”

This article is about a dog named Oscar, who was (8 years ago) just a day away from being put down in an SPCA shelter, but is now traveling the globe helping other dogs that are in that same situation. He has already helped 400 million dogs and has traveled 200,000 km, and he’s not done yet!! This article was posted by Meera Dolasia.
This incredible story begins in 2004 at an SPCA shelter in Cape Town, South Africa. The workers at the shelter were unable to find a suitable home for Oscar, so were planning to put him down the following day. That is, until Joanne Lefson walked in and couldn’t resist the dog’s pleading brown eyes. Oscar proved to be such a great dog, that Joanne wanted to show people all over the world that shelter dogs can make great companions. So in 2009 they set off on a 5 continent world tour to find all the dogs that were in shelters wonderful homes.
Along the way, they have visited some famous landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty and many more. Even though they have had lots of fun, they kept their focus on helping all of those dogs. The original ‘Woof’ tour is over, but instead of heading back home, Joanne and Oscar decided to revisit all of the places they enjoyed most.
I chose this article because I love animals and I thought this article looked very neat! I think I learned what a difference someone can make if they just really stick to their plan. This information could help us in the future if anyone decides to become an SPCA shelter volunteer.

The little town of Ribeauville that lies on a scenic wine route southwest of Strasbourg, France is known for two things. One is it's vineyards, and the other is 35 thousand bee colonies that produce more than 1,000 metric tons amber honey. ofit has lost its amber hue and instead taken on mysterious shades of blue, green and even red. They call it rainbow honey.
Mystified, and the beekeepers tried to discover how it happened. It took a few months but they figured it out. About 2.5 miles away from the hive lies a biogas station which processes waste from a Mars confectionery plant that manufactures M&M's!
The British Beekeepers Association believes that due to a harsh winter in 2011-12, the bees had a hard time finding honey. So they found a different sugar type. That is probably when they discovered the colorful sweet liquid waste that the company stored in large bins outside the plant. The news is not particularly good for the rest of us as well.

I am going to talk to you about some mixed breeds.And she was not wrong - Oscar proved to be such an amazing pet, that Joanne wanted to show him off to educate people all over the world that contrary to common perception, shelter dogs are not old, abused or disturbed, but perfectly great dogs, going through a phase of bad luck similar to what humans undergo sometimes.

the mutt is where to diferent kinds of breeds that is a mutt.So far, the lucky mutt has gone for 'walkies' on the Great Wall of China, swam with crocodiles in Zambia's Zambezi river, trekked the ancient ruins of Machu Pichu in Peru, explored the borders of Pakistan on a rare two-humped camel and, the list goes on and on

He has also visited some of the world's most famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower in Paris
You can visit the dogs too!!!

I wonder what the dog was thinking when he helped those dogs and walked that far.I don't think I could do some thing like that.
If I were the dog I'd be proud. I bet the owner of him sure is.
I like a dog would help though.It was really cool.

Bees are trained to find nectar. They follow a very difficult path to find flowers. Scientists put tiny raders on there backs.
Who teaches bees to take the necter from flowers.Is it a natural instinct or do scientists teach all bees to do this.
There brains have no more than one million neurons. Bees stop at one flower than the next and so on.A bee fills a flower with sucrose.Since the coures is so long bees often visited a flower they have already emptied.
Bees are very smart. I liked this passage it was very informatinal and interesting.Scientist should continue to experiment or learn more about bees

The main idea is a washing soap for jeans that is environmental.
They made this soap because it would reduce the amount of bad gases in the air.Some Chinese researchers are using some things in the catclo to try to make self cleaning clothes.

“London Taxi Turns Street Sounds into Sweet Music.”
“By: By Meera Dolasia”
“On September 21st and 22nd, some lucky residents of London were treated to an unusual sight and some sweet sounds - A black taxi fitted with 67 speakers belting out some great music.” Wow that is a lot of speakers. How can they fit that many speakers in a car?
“The 'Make the City Sound Better' project was a clever way to launch Dutch headphone manufacturer AiAiAi's latest offering, the Capital which according to the company is designed for the on-the-go-urbanite.” I would enjoy my town after they made that. I really would.
“Teaming up with sound artist Yuri Suzuki, they created a custom black cab that was fitted with microphones that recorded the street noise.” That would be cool. I wonder how long it took to make that.
“In some of London's posh, uppity areas like Mayfair, they were greeted with a few polite smiles, some raised eyebrows or simply ignored as though this were a sight that was encountered every day.” I would not ignore that. That I really cool.

My article is about the billion dollar trip to the center of the Earth. A group of scientists from IODP are (if they are supported) going to drill into the center of the Earth. They have already identified three 6kilometer deep parts of Earths crust to drill through. The crust is usualy 60-100 k deep but they have found three spots which all lie in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
If they are able to even secure the equipment to the ocean floor, then they will be faced with the fact to drill through the ocean floor with a 30 centimeter width hole all the way to the mantle. Then the drill bits must be changed every 50 to 60 hours because the ones currently availible in the market get corroded by the oceans salt. Before this happens they must find a country to support them to pay for what they estimate will cost 1billion USD, in which they have already recieved substantial suport from the Japanese Gov. the rest of the world has not been generous so far.
If this goes on they will be able to figure out how the Earth was created. But, this will not happen for another 10 to 15 years. the earliest we will know is 2020.
I read this article because it looked interesting.

All right people. You ready for this? I got another great article from Meera Dolisia. It’s about a man jumping from space. That’s right, you heard. He’s jumping from space. I picked this cuz it’s awesome.
All right. Now for the first two main ideas. I thinks the first idea is to make us go WOW. Why? Because a man is jumping from space. I think yo mind jus got blown. The second idea is to cause us suspence(0_0). Why? Because it makes us wonder, omg, is he, like, going to make it? Or maybe Jeez, will he survive? So that’s why.
Now for the main idea. The main idea I think is going to be to amuse us. Why? Because this is fun, fun, fun. So much fun. IN fact, so much fun, it’s funier than two women duking it out over a hershey’s kisses. It’s that fun. I mean, come on. What could possibly be more fun than jumping rom space?
And well, that’s it now. So…………………………………………………………………………………………….hmmmmmm……………………………………………………………………………….wait for it……………………………………………………………………….wait for it………………………………………………………………………………….aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnndddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd…………………………………………..BYE!

Mixed Breed Mutt’s Quest To Save Other Dogs Turns Into A World ‘Woof’ Tour
Only eight years ago, Oscar, a mixed breed mutt was one day away from being euthanized in an SPCA shelter. He is a globe-trotting adventurer who has made history by becoming the first dog to travel 200,000 km – All of course, in the quest to highlight the plight of the over 400 million homeless dogs that have not been as lucky – And, he is not done yet
So in 2009, the two set off on an epic five-continent world tour with one mission in the mind – To try find a happy home for all the dogs that currently reside inside shelters. The last three years they have visited over 20,000 dog shelters all around the world and appeared on countless television shows to help other canines. Along the way, they have also had times to have a little fun!
He has also visited some of the world’s most famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Statue of Liberty in New York, the Colosseum in Rome,the Taj Mahal in India and even, the Sphinx in Egypt. Not impressed? How about this? He has been on a hot-air balloon ride in Cape Town and just recently, even braved a helicopter tour across the Arizona’s Grand Canyon.
If that is not enough, his owner, Joanne who sold her home to finance this epic tour says that the original ‘woof’ tour is over, instead of heading back home, they have now begun revisiting the places they enjoyed the most! Did anyone say luckyyyyy?

On September 21st and 22nd, some lucky residents of London were treated to an unusual sight and some sweet sounds - A black taxi fitted with 67 speakers belting out some great music. However, the sounds emanating were not from the driver's personal music selection, but the bustling city's street noise turned into music.
The project was a clever way to launch headphone manufacturer AiAiAi's latest offering, the Capital which according to the company is designed for the on-the-go-. Hence what better way to do it then listening to music that is literally created from all the urban noise ranging from the 'hiss' of the bus to the 'vroom ' of the Ferrari and everything, in between.
Teaming up with sound artist Yuri Suzuki, they created a custom black cab that was fitted with microphones that recorded the street noise. Then, a specially designed software program instantly converted it all to unique music, which was belted out by the 67 speakers built into of the car, as well as, the big Indian horns mounted atop the cab's roof. Of course those lucky enough to hire the cab had the advantage of listening to the music and, trying out the new hecadphones.
The fun project was a huge success and according to Tobias Holz, the AiAiAi representative that was in the cab the entire time, while listening to different music depending on the traffic patterns around was fun, what was even more so, was the reactions from the passers-by.
It’s a loud and cool car its helpful

Mixed Breed Mutt's Quest to Save OtherDog's Into a World "woof" Tour By Meera Dolasia

This is a story about a dog named, "Oscar". He is a mixed breed mutt that was only one day from being euthanized at an SPCA shelter eight years ago.
A lady saved him an started a world tour to save dogs in shelters.
Her and Oscar have traveled 200,000 km. And also visited over 20,000 dog shelters in the last three years on their epic five-continent world tour. They have appeared on several TV shows to help other canines.
The reason I choose this topic is I think this tour was great for dogs everywhere.

For over 15 years science people have search the seas. Looking for organisms. One pacific one in fact it’s called plankton. They say there’s good and bad news. So if you want to know more keep on reading.

They sailed through 8 main oceans. This is the every main ocean Tara ocean. This is were they found the plankton organism. The oceanographers want to learn more about the Earth’s ecosystem and environment.

The latest expedition was an excursion around the world. It lasted for 198 days. The researchers collected about 27,000 from 152 areas. The scientists sorted out the organisms by size then classified them, helped by automated imaging system.

London Taxi Turns Street Sounds Into Sweet Music


On September 21st and 22nd the people of London were given an unusual sight. A black taxi fitted with 67 speakers belting out some great music. The music wasn’t his personal choice but it made the noise streets of London a less noise place. The 'Make The City Sound Better' project was a clever way to launch Dutch headphone manufacturer AiAiAi's. It’s designed for the on-the-go-people of London .it’s a better way of listening to music in or around the car! They made a custom black car with 67 speakers built into the car frame. Also, on top of the car were big Indian horns. The car would play different music according to the traffic patterns. While the black cab project has drawn to an end, the music has been recorded for eternity. For those of you curious to hear what it sounded like, below is one of the many 'original' soundtracks straight from the streets of London!

Scientists nowadays are more eager to explore new places. Did you ever imagine scientists would try to explore the center of the Earth? Well they are!

Scientists think they can explore the never before seen core of the Earth. I think this is impossible because the Earth’s core is so thick that nothing could pass through it, even the best drill ever made could not cut it.

I wonder if they would ever manage to go to the center of the Earth? If they do, that would be amazing? Will the scientists be burned by the lava at the core?

I chose this article because I thought that reaching the Earth’s core was an impossible task. If they do manage to reach the Earth’s core, this would be a bigger deal than reaching the moon!

With sound, artist Yuri Suzuki created a custom black cab that had microphones that recorded the street noise. On September 21st and 22nd, some people of London woke up to an unusual sight and some sweet sounds, a black taxi with 67 speakers belting out some great music.

However, the sounds were not from the driver's personal music selection, but the busy city's street noise turned into music, sweet sounding music.

I am summarizing “This Tuesday, Watch Live As Felix Baumgartner Leaps From The Edge Of Space” By Meera Dolasia. This article is about Felix jumping back to earth from our outer atmosphere. This will occur about 120,000 feet above our planet.
If Felix actually accomplishes this he will break four world records. One of these are to break the speed of sound in free fall! He is leaving from Roswell, New Mexico.
Felix will be carried 23 miles above earth’s surface by a helium filled balloon. This trip will take about 2.5 hours. After he reaches this altitude he will jump out and accelerate to about 690 mph! When he reaches 5,000 feet he will open his chute and land back in New Mexico.
This article is about Felix wanting to jump 23 miles above the earth and land safely. This article is also about you can do anything you want it just takes effort.

I am doing my article on mixed breed Mutt's quest to save other homeless dogs. This dog was the first dog ever to travel 200,000 KM. And he is not done yet! Oscar himself was homeless for two years. Until 2004 in Cape, Town South Africa, when the rescue center came and rescued him. They were going to him down , but Joanna Lefson saw him and was gone.
Oscar was such an amazing dog , she wanted to show him off. "So in 2009, the two set off on an epic five-continent world tour with one mission in mind - To try find a happy home for all the dogs that currently reside inside shelters. In the last three years they have visited over 20,000 dog shelters all around the world and appeared on countless television shows to help other canines.

Who would be dume enough to jump over 120,000ft.[23miles] Thats is the edge of space. Falling faster then a bullet is hard to belive, but faster then the speed of sound is harder to belive. Trying to brake the world record is one thing but try to kill your self is another like this. He ended in New Mixco. Do you think it craze to even thank about doing this?

The article "London Taxi Turns Street Sounds into Sweet Music"
A taxi was transformed into a big music box, it was equipped with 67 speakers. It did not play regular music it played music made from street noises.
The music that was played was not regular music, but music made by street noises and had music added to it.
It was used in some of the more uptown ritzy neighborhoods, to add some culture to the area. Not everyone liked the taxi or the noise it made, but it was interesting to look at.
