Im writing about the "23rd Makeover Of Sweden's Ice Hotel". This hotel in the tiny village of Jukkasjarvi, Sweden gets a complete makeover every year because believe it or not, it is carved entirely from Ice blocks lugged in from the nearby Torne River.
Now in its 23rd year, the idea of building a frozen hotel came about quite accidently, after a local tourist company trying attract visitors during the severe winter months, hosted an art exhibition in a specially built igloo atop the frozen Torne River.While the 60sq.ft. structure was a huge success attracting many day visitors, it was not until a group of brave souls arrived with reindeer hides and sleeping bags and announced their intention to spend the night inside the igloo that the villagers had an 'aha' moment!
The Ice Hotel has come a long way since these humble beginnings. The design is unique gets increasingly sophisticated, year after year. Each area is now advertised as a 'work of art' with artists from all over the world competing to carve one of the 47 bedroom suites, reception lobby or ice bar. The hotel even houses a church for couples looking for an offbeat wedding location!Similar to any hotel, guests can choose to lounge around all day or pick from a number of activities ranging from snowshoeing, Moose safaris, dog sledding, snowmobile safaris to even, overnight wilderness camps.
Over the years, many copycat ice hotels have emerged and similar destinations can now also be found in Quebec City, Canada, Norway, Finland and Romania. However, the original one remains the biggest and the grandest of all.

Germination, the process through which plants disperse seeds so that they can sprout and grow into new plants can be a little tricky, given that plants are immobile. That's because while the fruit has to be tasty, the seeds cannot be. Plants seem to get by this issue by making them indigestible so that they simply pass through the animal's body intact. The sweet mignonette produces delicious little fruits that resemble blackberries, a favorite with the local spiny mice, who are constantly seeking them out. And if that was not enough to prove how smart the shrub is, the researchers conducted one more experiment - To see if the seeds covered in mice spit germinated better than the ones extracted straight from the fruit. The seeds spit out by the mice germinated at twice the rate of the seeds that had not come in contact with the animal.

Lava From Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Spills Into The Ocean
The home of many active volcanoes is on Hawaii's Big Island.However, none are as dynamic or spectacular as the Kilauea, which has been erupting almost nonstop since 1983.its recent explosion was so large that for the first time ever, the lava has made a seven-mile journey right into the ocean, making for some stunning visuals!the lava began to edge toward the ocean on October 29th it was not until November 25th, that it made its first entry into the water.Similar to all of Hawaii's volcanoes, this one too has an interesting legend. According to ancient Hawaiian folklore Kilauea, which means spewing or much spreading in the local language, is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess.
Her sister finally caught up with her and killed her in an epic battle near Hana, on the Hawaiian Island of Maui.Pele, in turn shows her appreciation by putting on some spectacular lava shows, making it a win-win situation for both!

35-mile laser Rainbow lights up New York skies to honor hurricanes Sandy victims.
By: Meera Dolasia
New York residents were treaded to a amazing sight a 35 mile laser rainbow. This rainbow light up this cloudy night.
“Called 'Global Rainbow After The Storm', the laser installation that was beamed off Manhattan's Standard Hotel was thought up by the Berlin-based artist as a way to provide people with a sense of peace and security especially, during a time of crises, such as the one the city has been through thanks to Hurricane Sandy and also, to relay a message of unity regardless of class, race, religion, and culture.”
This amazing sight is not onley in New York! It is also displayed across Europe and even London. Is showed a great symbol of hope for the victums or Sandy.

I close the article about the 23rd Makeover of Sweden's Ice Hotel Is Fabulous And Freezing! By Meera Dolasia
I think it would be cool to spend the night in a Ice Hotel. You sure couldn't say it was to warm ever. Each time you would go for a night it would be like staying in a new place.
The temperature in the hotel is 5*c (23*F). They say to sleep with your gloves on. Most people sleep in thermal sleeping bags and only stay one night. The hotel is built out of ice blocks from the Torne River. It melts every Summer and they built a new hotel the next year.
It is the ultimate green building and the biggest and grandest of all and located in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. Just Ice and a few deer skins what easy house cleaning. Sounds like a cool place.

35-mile Laser Rainbow Lights up New York Skies to Honor Hurricane Sandy Victims
This article was about New York residents who were very surprised to see a 35-mile rainbow lighting up the sky all the way from Manhattan to Brooklyn, where hurricane Sandy hit. This was not a real rainbow but a masterpiece by an artist from Germany, Yvette Mattern. This article was by Meera Dolasia.

This rainbow was nicknamed ‘Global Rainbow after the Storm’. It was beamed off one of Manhattan’s hotels and shined all across the sky. Yvette, the artist who created it, believed the rainbow would give the citizens peace and a feeling of safety, especially at this time as Hurricane Sandy recently hit. Yvette also wanted to let the rainbow be a message of unity, saying that no matter what race, class, or culture you are, in this time of crisis they are unified.

This is not the only time this rainbow has been displayed for everyone to see, but people don’t seem to get tired of seeing it! It still served as a symbol of hope and recovery for the victims of the hurricane, as they are still trying to restore their lives best they can and recover from the disaster.


I chose this article because I thought it was really neat that people were joining together trying to give the hurricane victims a sense of hope. I think the rainbow was so neat and I’m sure the people in New York loved it too. I learned from this article that you can accomplish a lot if you work together, because I’m sure there were lots of people helping put that together. I also learned that the Hurricane victims need as much hope as they can get because I’m sure their hopes aren’t very high. Knowing this information will help us in the future if we work for an organization like convoy of hope, so we will know a little bit more about helping out others like that! =)

The article I chose is called, '35-mile Laser Rainbow Lights Up New York Skies To Honor Hurricane Sandy Victims'. By Meera Dolasia. This article is about how a a laser was shining for 2 days. They did this to honor the hurricane Sandy vicitms. This laser was rainbow colors.

This laser was a 35-mile long laser. It went through New York. This event lasted from November 26th-November 28th. This laser was supposed to give people a sense of peace after this awful storm! This light was not only shone in New York. They also displayed this laser in Europe and at the London Olympics.

This laser was created by a German artist named Yvette Mattern. This laser was called 'Global Rainbow After The Storm'. This laser was meant to give also a sense of security to. This laser was meant to send a message of togetherness regardless of what class you are, or what religion you are, and whatever culture you are.

I chose this article because I think its a wonderful act of kindness to help the victims of any horrible storm. I also chose this article because I wanted to see how and what this person that was in charge of this wanted to get across. (I might add that he did this for a very good cause) This information will help me if I wanted to know what I could do if I wanted to bring somebody closer together or to honor somebody. In conclusion this is about the article I chose!
I'm sorry for not getting this turned in when I was supposed to! So sorry!

I wonder why they remodel it every year. Also I wonder how much it costed them to make it. I want to live in a house like that, and I wonder if it's really cold in the ice hotel.
Once again I thought this article was interesting. Though this story wasn't near as interesting as some i read it still was. I liked this story.

A plant in iraq is mean. It grows berrys that looks like ones mice eat. But there is one key difference. The seeds in these berries, when chewed, release a chemical that tastes like hot mustard. The mouse then spits the seeds out. The least the pland can do is give the mice some milk. Poor mice. BAD PLANTS!

Other plants make their seeds indegestible or they make their seeds stick to passing by animals. But some make animals spit it out like the shrub in iraq. The secret is diabolical.
This plants seeds when bit release a chemical that tastes like hot mustard. The mice that eat similar berries eats this one and thinks they ate a hot pepper so they spit out the seeds and the seeds grow. That is how this plant disperses its seeds.
That would be like getting a pet mouse then filling a berry with jalepeno juice and feeding it to you pet. The mouse will spit it out and then the berry will be all the way across the cage because it scurried around to find a comportable place. The plant thougt the same. The plant revolution is coming and you all thought i was crazy.

23rd Makeover Of Sweden's Ice Hotel Is Fabulous And Freezing!
By: Meera Dolasia

The Ice Hotel in Sweeden goes through at least one renovation each year. The reason, the hotel is made completely of ice.

The hotel is like many others, the reaon being, it has activities such as safaris and dog sledding.

The hotel is very structurally safe, plus, it is the most "green" building in the world. Because te hotel will never have to be torn down, it can simply melt.


I chose this article because I wanted to know more about an "Ice Hotel". I also wanted to know if it was actually made of ice, or made to look like ice.

However this hotel in the tiny village of Jukkasjarvi, Sweden gets a complete makeover every year because believe it or not, it is carved entirely from Ice blocks lugged in from the nearby Torne River. What’s even more amazing is that the hotel gets even more amazing ever year it gets a makeover.
This hotel is made of ice and is freezing cold inside so if you ever go there you might want to get a lot of blankets, that’s if I was you. Now it is the 23rd makeover! that’s amazing! They have been trying to attract visitors for a while, but people are afraid they might or will get to cold.
The Ice Hotel has come a long way since these humble beginnings. The design is unique gets increasingly sophisticated, year after year. Each area is now advertised as a 'work of art' with artists from all over the world competing to carve one of the 47 bedroom suites, reception lobby or ice bar. The hotel even houses a church for couples looking for an offbeat wedding location!
When you are there you sleep. Over the years, many copycat ice hotels have emerged and similar destinations can now also be found in Quebec City, Canada, Norway, Finland and Romania.

In November no the 16th NASAs solar dynamics observation SOD captured on tape two spectacular back-to back sun eruptions. also know as solar prominence they are large glowing clouds of gas.

The first eruption occurred at 1.am EST with the other following within four hours. Both were so large that they expanded beyond the camera view of the SDO

Solar Promiences are huge arcs of gas that erupt from the surface of the Sun. They begin with an exploion usually abov a sunspot, the area where strong magetic fields poke through the surface of the sun

The good news is that these blasts of radiation are blocked by the magnetosphere and atmosphere and there for pose no risk to humans however the protons and other charged particals that follow the flares withen about 20min can be extremely destructive to our satellite systems GPS tracking devices and power grids

Our article is by Meera Dolasia and is about the microbes found in Antartica. There was about 2,800 year old ice microbes discovered 65 ft under the ice in Antartica's largest lake, Vida. Somehow the microbes survived in the icy -10 C water for over 3,000 years without any help from the outside world. And what else surprised the scientists is that there is no oxygen.
Scientists think that after so long the microbes adapted to the environment. This environment, believed to be to extreme to live in, housed these microbes in nitrous oxide which is believed to be the largest in a natural water environment. What is even more surprising is that the water is about six to seven times more salty than ocean water. Nitrous Oxide is laughing gas because of the effect on humans.
Scentists believe that the ancient bacteria learned to survive by making a reaction happen by extracting chemicals from the hydrogen, nitrate nitrite, and nitrous oxide which affected the saline in the water and the ironus rocks beneath. They also think that since this bacteria survived in this believed to be unable to be unhabital environment, but maybe there is life on Mars that couldve adapted to an extreme environment.
We chose this article because it looked cool. It added to our knowledge that there could be life on mars. This could help us in the future if we wish to study extreme environments.

23rd Makeover of Sweden’s Ice Hotel is Fabulous and Freezing
By: Meera Dolasia

A small village of Jukkasjarvi gets a new makeover every year! It is made entirely from ice from the Torne River nearby. The hotel looks amazing each year! Building an ice hotel was an idea that happened all on its own.
The story happens like this-A local tourist company attracted visitors by building an igloo on top of the frozen river, Torne River, in the middle of a severe winter. Visitors came and seen the igloo and then one night a group of people slept in the igloo and the passage says that the villagers had an “aha” moment.
Each year artists compete on how they will carve the 47 bedroom suites, lobby or ice bar. So that the hotel is affordable the condition of the suit and price of it ranges. The hotel also has activities such as snowshoeing, Moose safaris, dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, and overnight wilderness camps.
I loved this article. I didn’t even know there could be hotels made out of ice. I wonder who built and designed the hotel. Is there heaters to keep the guests warm.

My article review is on 23rd Makeover of Sweden’s Ice Hotel. This article was written by Meera Dolasia. I chose this article because really I just pick each article randomly then read it. So hopefully this article is interesting.
The Ice Hotel first started as a special museum built to host an art exhibition. When a couple of people showed up with reindeer hides and decided that they would be spending the night. Then the villagers got the big picture. The hotel is made up of big, huge ice blocks brought up from Torne River.
Besides being made of ice, the hotel is also eco-friendly. When summer comes around the hotel melts leaving the next design a mystery. If you didn’t know of the unique, freezing Ice Hotel maybe you should check it out sometime next winter!
Turns out, this article was pretty interesting. Maybe one day I would go spend the night at the Ice Hotel. I learned that more and more ice hotels are popping up but the best is the one and only Sweden’s Ice Hotel. This information could help me if one day I find myself stranded in Sweden near the hotel itself.
All in all this was my favorite article!

From Tuesday November 26th to Thursday November 28th, New York residents were treated to an unusual but glorious sight - A 35-mile rainbow that lit up the cloudy night skies all the way from Manhattan to the hurricane ravaged Brooklyn.

Im writing my article review on "Crimson Waters Cause Sydney Beaches To Close" by Meera Dolasia. Sydney's world famous Bondi Beach turned crimson red on Tuesday November 26th.

These "Red Tides" are caused by microscopic organismsbecome concentrated in small sections of the ocean. This happens frequently on the California beaches. Sydney officials think that a recent upswell that brought in nutrient-rich waters to the coastline caused the increase in the population.

The algea are not harmful to humans but they may cause a slight iritation to the skin and eyes. As the algea die and sink into shallow waters, they decompose and cause areas of low oxygen.

These waters seem very facsinating. I would like to research these more.

Smart desert shrub uses the spiny mouse to disperse its seeds!
The process through which plants disperse seeds so they can’t sprout and turn into a new plant. the sweet mignonette produces delicious little fruit .
the fruit has 20 seed inside. The findings of this unusually smart germination technique.
You may noticed that chewing on a seed if you put it in your mouth. Who are capable of destroying the seed with their teeth.
The fruit is tasty but don’t chew on the seeds. The seeds are really hard to chew on.

Lava From Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Spills Into The Ocean
The home of many active volcanoes is on Hawaii's Big Island.However, none are as dynamic or spectacular as the Kilauea, which has been erupting almost nonstop since 1983.its recent explosion was so large that for the first time ever, the lava has made a seven-mile journey right into the ocean, making for some stunning visuals!the lava began to edge toward the ocean on October 29th it was not until November 25th, that it made its first entry into the water.Similar to all of Hawaii's volcanoes, this one too has an interesting legend. According to ancient Hawaiian folklore Kilauea, which means spewing or much spreading in the local language, is the home of Pele, the Hawaiian volcano goddess.
Her sister finally caught up with her and killed her in an epic battle near Hana, on the Hawaiian Island of Maui.Pele, in turn shows her appreciation by putting on some spectacular lava shows, making it a win-win situation for both!

23rd Makeover Of Sweden's Ice Hotel Is Fabulous And Freezing!

Most hotels are lucky if they go through one or two renovations during their lifetime. However this hotel in the tiny village of Jukkasjarvi, Sweden gets a complete makeover every year because believe it or not, it is carved entirely from Ice blocks lugged in from the nearby Torne River. What's even more stunning is that the hotel gets increasingly fabulous each year!

Now in its 23rd year, the idea of building a frozen hotel came about quite accidently, after a local tourist company trying attract visitors during the severe winter months, hosted an art exhibition in a specially built igloo atop the frozen Torne River. While the 60sq.ft. structure was a huge success attracting many day visitors, it was not until a group of brave souls arrived with reindeer hides and sleeping bags and announced their intention to spend the night inside the igloo that the villagers had an 'aha' moment.

I am doing my repot on the nasa observatory captures spectacular sun eruptions
On November 16th, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), captured on tape two spectacular back-to back sun eruptions. Also known as solar prominences, they are large glowing clouds of gas that periodically explode from the Sun's surface
Though the sun has been relatively peaceful over the last few years, solar storms are not a new phenomenon. They seem to occur regularly every 11 years or so. Since the latest cycle is not expected to peak until 2013, scientists are anticipating more storms in the coming months. Hopefully, they will all be as harmless as this one was, leaving behind nothing in its wake except, stunning pictures.

Surfers visiting Sydney's world famous Bondi Beach on Tuesday November 26th, were in for a little shock - The normally crystal clear blue ocean waters had turned a crimson red! However, before you get all concerned, it was not the result of a brutal shark attack, nor oily tomato sauce as was the original rumor! Instead the is an over of an called noctiluca scintillans or sea sparkle.Known to happen frequently in the oceans around California, the called Red Tides occurs when these organisms become concentrated in small sections of the ocean. Australian authorities believe that this latest increase in population can be attributed to a recent upswell that brought in rich waters to the coastline.The good news is that it does not last for long periods of time - In fact, Bondi Beach, which was closed by the authorities on Tuesday, is already open to visitors and sporting its usual blue color. And though many people are afraid of the intense redness, besides causing a slight irritation to the skin and eyes, the algae are not harmful to humans. However, as die and sink in the shallow waters of the coastline, and cause areas of low

In Jukkasjarvi, Sweden there is a motel make out of huge blocks of ice. The big Blocks of ice is lugged from the near by Torne River.
It has been in business for 23 yrs. It started be accident. a tourist company was trying to attract more winter tourists. They started by having a igloo building contest.
The hotel started when people wanted to stay the night in them. there is 47 rooms and each room is different. The hotel stays at a cool 23 F . The guest usually only stay one night in the ice hotel and the rest of their stay is spent in a regular hotel.
There are 3 more like this on but the one in sweden is the original ice hotel. The hoteltakes 6 weeds to build and it will have 12 thousand guest that stay the night. The hotel also has a restaurant and louge where the drinks are served in ice glasses. The glasses are made at a ice factory near by. They will make 1 million total to be used for the season. After they are used they melt just like the hotel. It is here for 3 months, and then it is gone.

I am doing my article review on the Sweden Ice Hotel.This hotel goes through at least one or two remodelings a year.Most hotels have to go through a remodel one or two times a lifetime. This hotel gets more amazing.

"Now in its 23rd year, the idea of building a frozen hotel came about quite accidently, after a local tourist company trying attract visitors during the severe winter months, hosted an art exhibition in a specially built igloo atop the frozen Torne River. While the 60sq.ft. structure was a huge success attracting many day visitors, it was not until a group of brave souls arrived with reindeer hides and sleeping bags and announced their intention to spend the night inside the igloo that the villagers had an 'aha' moment!"
The hotel has come a long ways since the beginning. This hotel is advertised as a "work of art". It has 47 bed"ice"rooms,and reception lobby or ice bar.
Over the years people have copied this hotel and can also be found in Quebec City,Canada.But the original hotel is still the biggest. Thanks for readind my article review!!
