I'm doing my article reveiw on the article "'Fire Ice' - The New Source Of Green Energy? Japan Certainly Seems To Think So" By Meera Dolasia on March 17, 2013. The government of Japan thinks we can run the country of a gan the in under the ice in Alaska and Canada and marine sediments on ocean floors. Japan thinks they can get methane hydrate. They believe that by 2018, they will be able to develop the technology to safely extract enough fuel to satisfy the entire country's energy needs.

On March 11, 2013 Japan got the gas out of the ground for the first time. There are a few thing dangerous about the gas. Geting the gas is the big thing because if they dont do it right it could hurt the seabed.

Unfortunately it is a Sunday, which means that you cannot pinch your school friends (not wearing green) and get away with it, but there are always unsuspecting family members and neighbors that you can have fun with. Also, be sure to go on an extensive search for those lucky four-leaf clovers and seek out leprechauns that will hopefully lead you to the elusive pot of gold. But before you do all that, be sure to read about the man whose death anniversary we celebrate and how all these unusual customs began. i hope u enjoy this holiday as much as i do because its a great day for us figting irish lol ;)

Well I think methane gas is not environmentally safe not one bit what I think would happen is atmosphere fall to a poison era that will bring another world depression. So what I mean is that we should leave the methane alone!!!

Japan believes that fire and ice are and green energy. They have tried to figure out how to separate them. If they do they can burn it.If they do this they would have a lot more energy.
There is a special kind of methane gas molecules in mud and ice. This methane burns on contact with fire. We can make ice and mud is found all over the world so this is a renewable resource. We can't run out of mud and ice.
Methane hydrate was found in the 1800's. Scientists began to wonder how to get the fuel. Some scientists are concerned it might become unstable. The Japanese have successfully removed it.

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
By Meera Dolasia
Too bad it was a Sunday on Saint Patrick’s Day. That means you cant pinch your school friends.” Though this day accounts for some of Irelands biggest celebrations, St. Patrick was not Irish! Born somewhere along the west coast of Britain in 385AD, he was kidnapped and sold to an Irish sheep farmer when he was 16 years old. He escaped at the age of 22 and returned to Britain, spending the next 12 years in a monastery. In his early 30's he went back to Ireland, this time as a missionary to convert the pagan Irish people to Christianity and remained there, until his death on March 17th, 461 AD. According to historians, he was largely forgotten for hundreds of years and it was not until the 7th Century that he was honored as a Revered Patron Saint of Ireland”.
Saint Patricks Day is now a national holiday in Ireland. Over the years this holiday become very popular with people who aren’t even Irish.

I'm doing my article review on -Will The World's Largest Telescope Help Unveil The Secrets Of Our Origins? By Meera Dolasia
The ALMA telescope is comprised of 66 antennas. The antennas measure 40 feet in diameter. They all are set to work together to process the data into one picture. It's the most powerful ground based telescope. ALMA stands for Atacama Large Millimeter Array.
This telescope's resolution is ten times better with a sharper picturer than the Hubble telescope. It is able to also detect radio signals, which means it can bypass the dense clouds of deep space and look beyond. With this telescope they hope to get a glimpse of the galaxies that were formed after the Big Bang.
In order for the AlMA to work its best it was built in the driest desert where there is almost no cloud cover, dry air, almost no radio interference and no light pollution. It is also built on an elevation of 16,500 feet about the earth;s atmosphere to get the best pictures. At this height the scientist that work there have to use oxygen masks alot of the time.
Researchers hope this $1.3 billion USD Observatory, a 10 year joint effort of North America, Asia, and Europe, will be able to tell us how stars were formed and how life as we know it came to exist. This would be great to know, to help us with more research with medicine and all kinds of stuff.

The article I chose is called, ‘Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!’ By: Meera Dolasia. This article is about Saint Patrick’s Day. It talks about Saint Patrick’s Day came to be, the four- leaf clover, and how that blue was the original color.
This paragraph is about Saint Patrick and how why he has a day dedicated to him. First, Saint Patrick was not Irish. He was born around the west coast of Britain. In 385AD. Then Saint Patrick was captured and was bought by an Irish sheep farmer. Saint Patrick was 16 years old then. He later escaped and went back to Britain. Then he went back to Ireland and he became a missionary then he died there on March 17th, 461 AD.
This next paragraph talks about the four- leaf clover and how the original color wasn’t green it was blue. Only one four- leaved clover in 10,000 clovers has four leaves. Each leaf of the four leaf clover means something. The first means hope, then the second means faith, the third means love and the fourth means happiness. Then the about the original color. The original color was blue and not green. The color ‘green was adopted in the 19th century’. They did that because green represents spring, life and the shamrock.
The sum it all up, I chose this article because I wanted to learn more about Saint Patrick’s Day. It also looked interesting too. Why I would need to know this because I could tell others about Saint Patrick’s Day and what it’s about.

Pi Day!!

March 14th is Pi Day 25th anniversary. This day celebrates ratios, circumference, and diameter. Pi is calculated into 3.14 which is the date of March 14th. The ancient Babylonians first calculated the area of a circle by 3 times the square of its radius, giving Pi the value of 3. Later they got closer to the real number which was 3.124; Egyptian’s got a number of 3.165. A lot of people celebrate Pi day as a holiday, they eat Pi to celebrate this occasion.

This article is about the "Fire Ice" review. When I read that Japan is doing some research and experiments on gas in mud and ice that they found under the ocean. And it can be lit and turn into a fire that provides light and warmth. Now thats weird.

From the article the gas that they found is called methane. I really don't think that I ever heard of that. Some scoientist are concerd that it might do some unstable stuff. But on the other hand Japan thinks it green economical stuff and they'll be able to supply almost all of Japan with it in the year 2018.

'Fire Ice' - The New Source Of Green Energy? Japan Certainly Seems To Think So.
Imagine lighting a snow ball or a bundle of ice. Although that may seem impossible, it is not only feasible but japan believes that they can use this energy to fuel the entire country. As you have probably guessed the ice and mud in question are not the ones we normally encounter. There is a special kind that has methane gas molecules locked inside, which is what burns, when in contact with a match. Also known as methane hydrate it was first discovered in the 1800's and for many years thought of as nuisance ice that clogs up pipelines during cold weather. However, when large deposits of it started being discovered naturally under the ice in Alaska and Canada, as well as, under the marine sediments on ocean floors, scientist.
So far no one has attempted to extract it on a large scale from either areas because of the challenges involved. In the case of the frozen methane, scientists are concerned that it may become unstable during mining or transportation, which would result in the release of a gas that is ten times worse than carbon dioxide. As for the methane hydrate found under the ocean? The logistics of extracting it are simply too complex. That's because not only do the pipes first have to get to a kilometer below sea level to the seabed, but be lowered hundreds of meters down further, to where the gas is located. Also, many of the reserves lie in areas where the seabed starts to drop off, making it even more difficult to lay the pipes accurately. To add to the complications, the gas has to be separated and captured from the Chlarate, (the chemical substance that causes it to be in the frozen state) at the source. Otherwise, there is the danger that it will escape when it encounters the change in pressure, as it is being hauled up.
Though encouraging and certainly a step in the right direction, Japan still has to prove that it can achieve stable production and safely extract the gas without causing any catastrophic damage to the seabed. Besides the danger that large scale production may cause the gas to escape into the atmosphere, experts are also concerned that scraping through large areas of seabed could result in an underwater slide leading to tsunami - Something the Japanese sure don't want to experience ever again! But if scientists can overcome all these hurdles, methane could prove to be a great green energy alternative. Also, it would be cool to have things powered by these strange, ice-like nuggets wouldn't it?

This story makes me wonder how some of the skyscrapers are staying up if the base is smaller than the rest of it. Also, how did they come up with the designs for the skyscrapers? Which i'm 100% sure they are real skyscrapers but Cooper thinks other wise.
So how did they come up with the idea to make odd shaped sky scrapers and what were they made for? Also what were they made out of? When were these towers made?
So to conclude my article reveiw this was a very interesting story and had awesome pictures.

This artifact is a sight to see for math lovers. But this wasn't the only thing going on that day; college students decided to have pie for this popular day. They had 130 pies 26 each and five varieties. this was a clever idea because those numberare the first digits of pie! Pi is still a mystery to scientist a nd people all over the world.

I chose the article on the new telescope the ALMA telescope, by Meera Dolasia. This article is about a telescope that is 10 times sharper than the Hubble telescope. ALMA stands for Atacama Large Milimeter Array.
The ALMA has 66 antenneas. Most of them measure 40 feet in diameter. They are set up to produce one picture and send it to the fastest computer used on an astronaumical site that processes the information into one final picture. The ALMA is also built in Chili on a plateau that is 16,500 ft over sea level. This allows the advantage of almost never a cloud in sight which is perfect for visibility.
Since the ALMA 10 times sharper than the Hubble telescope it can bypass clouds in deep space. This could enable scientists to look at the galaxies formed right after the Big Bang. It could also show them how these stars came into existence.
I chose this article because I like learning about things in space. I want to know how many people had to work on this to complete it. This could help me in the future if I work with telescopes.

Pi Day Celebrates 25th Anniversary!

"Today is the 25th birthday of Pi Day! Yes, believe it or not, we actually set aside a day to celebrate the numerical constant that represents the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, on a flat plane surface. Why was March 14th selected? Because while Pi has been calculated to one trillion digits past the decimal point, we all simply recognize it as 3.14, which also happens to be, today's date.
Started in 1988 by San Francisco's Exploratorium Museum to commemorate the importance of mathematics in our everyday lives, the date also coincides with the birthday of 20th century's most influential physicist - Albert Einstein!
Today, In celebration of the 25th anniversary, the San Francisco museum invited math lovers to parade down the city's waterfront to a newly installed Pi shrine - A brass plate about a foot in diameter engraved with the first 108 digits of Pi - All whilst, singing Happy Birthday to the German scientist"

These Futuristic Skyscrapers Will Never Be Built But They Are Sure Fun To Envision
By: Meera Dolasia
Since 2006, Evolo has held a competition to see who could envision the most creative, magnificent structures they can imagine. Many people participate, but there are only three winners and twenty-four honorable mentions.

The first place winner, Derek Pirozzi, was credited for his idea, the "Polar Umbrella". This idea would be used to help solve a pressing matter. That would be to melt polar ice caps. The building has a unique umbrella shape, to help it get its job done.

I like this idea because bryond just using creativity, it also helps to reach a goal. In this way, the Evolo contest is more than just that, it is also a way to help people in the community.

I picked this article because I like architecture. It is unique because no two buildings can be built exactly the same. It also requires creativity to think of all the factors that need to be taken in to consideration.

The thought of abstracting natural gas from offshore methane hydrate deposits or sometimes called "fireice" seems like a good idea, along with possible enough natural gas off the coast of Japan to supply them for a century an along with alterative source of energy. but the problem with this is experts estimate that there is more then twice as much carbon in the methane hydrate deposits natural gas then any other kind of gas.The exact properties of undersea hydrates and how they might affect the environment are still poorly understood, an is still a green house gas which does cause damage to the ozone layer. An yeah Japan has probley invested millions of dollars to explore this, but have they really took the time to see what problems it can cause, It is still unclear how much the tapping of methane hydrate would affect Japan’s emissions or globle warming. On one hand, natural gas would provide a cleaner alternative to coal, which still could provides Japan with a fifth of its primary energy needs. But new energy sources could also prompt Japan to slow its development of renewable energies or green technologies, hurting its emissions in the long run. Any accidental release of large amounts of methane during the extraction process would also be harmful.

2. Or you can use the mud from the bottom of the ocean.
You have probably already said but you cant light ice or mud on fire. The Japan government thinks that he can use the energy to fuel an entire decade wow!!!!!!!! The reason why this can light on fire is there’s a weird gas in both of these things called methane there’s molecules locked inside the hard packed snowball and in the mud making it light on fire when you stick a lighter or other fire things

When he was 16 years old he was kidnapped and sold to an Irish sheep farmer.
He escaped at the age of 22 and returned to Britain.
In his early 30’s he went back to Ireland.
In 1732 the Irish soldiers serving in American colonies got to reconnect with their country.
The real color was blue, but green got adopted in the 19th century so it is now the color.
Don’t forget this year it was celebrated on March 17.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Unfortunately it is a Sunday, which means that you cannot pinch your school friends (not wearing green) and get away with it, but there are always unsuspecting family members and neighbors that you can have fun with. Also, be sure to go on an search for those lucky four-leaf clovers and seek out that will hopefully lead you to the pot of gold. But before you do all that, be sure to read about the man whose death anniversary we celebrate and how all these unusual customs began. Though this day accounts for some of Irelands biggest celebrations, St. Patrick was not Irish! Born somewhere along the west coast of Britain in , he was kidnapped and sold to an Irish sheep farmer when he was 16 years old. He escaped at the age of 22 and returned to Britain, spending the next 12 years . In his early 30's he went back to, this time as a missionary to convert the Irish people to Christianity and remained there, until his death on March 17th, 461 AD. According to historians, he was largely forgotten for hundreds of years and it was not until the 7th Century that he was honored as a Revered Patron Saint of Ireland. While St. Patrick's Day is now a national holiday in Ireland with the festivities lasting for four days, the first celebration was not held there, but in Boston, . Over the years, the holiday has become popular with people even if they are not of Irish descent. The biggest parade outside takes place in New York City. Middle East and Asia all joining in the fun by 40 of the world's most structures and attractions ranging from the Pyramids and to the London Eye to even the Prince's Palace in Monaco, an emerald green.In case you don't find that four-leaf clover today, don't fret. Did you know that only one in 10,000 clovers have four leaves? The Irish believe that each leaf means something - The first represents hope, the second faith, the third love and the fourth, happiness. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the highest number of leaves recorded on a clover According to Irish mythology, the leprechaun, (whose name comes from the mixture of 'small person' and 'one shoemaker') is a small fairy that knows the location of a pot of gold. But to get to that, you not only have to find and catch him, but also, threaten him. Apparently, the best way to find this sneaky little guy is to nab him while he is repairing shoes. But even after that be careful, for he is crafty enough to escape! Turns out that thanks to his mother's Irish, US President, Barack Obama, is partly Irish. While the President and First Lady have postponed the official St. Patrick's day celebrations until Tuesday when they host the Prime Minster of Ireland, they did acknowledge it with a special luncheon where they exchanged shamrocks with White House officials and by continuing the age-old tradition of dyeing the White House fountain water, green.
