Amazing robot
Born with life-threatening allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs and numerous other foods, as well as, things like perfumes and fabric softeners, Devon's parents knew that there was no way the young boy would be able to survive in a normal classroom environment, especially since even breathing in an allergen could result in an anaphylactic shock.
The 4-ft tall chrome and steel VGo robot that is fitted with a television screen and acts as a two way audio/video mobile communications system, may not be as cool looking as the one built by James Cameron

Air In A Can? Seriously?
Chen Guangbiao has developed a way to can air. This may seem like a joke but it’s not seriously. He’s sold a thousand cans for 80 cents apiece. He says there’s a chip in each can so when its full it automatically shuts. If this actually works we will have even more cans used then we already have

2nd Grader uses an Avatar to attend school

Devon Carrow has life threatening allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs, and many other foods. He is also allergic to things like perfume and fabric softeners. His parents knew he could not go to school so they had to homeschool him.
His parents heard about an Avatar that could be able to let him go to school with the rest of the kids but he could sit at home and do it. He can interact with his teachers, friends and do everything else but share his lunch.
His life is better now that he is able to go to school but he cant go out for play dates, and when his friends want to come over they have to shower before they play. He has to carry his own tent and food when he goes with his boy scout troop for camping trips. On the good side the only foods he can safely eat is potatoes, corn, and apples. He can have French fries for breakfast if he wants.
I think that is would suck to not be able to eat many foods. They might someday come up with something that could fix his problems.

Russia’s shiny secret
This week Russian officials discovered were a meteor hit thirty years ago. Instead of it leaving just a normal hole in the ground, it left diamonds. There is said to be enough diamonds there to last us for at least three thousand years!!!
Known as impact diamonds they are the hardest known substance to man, formed when a space rock hits a graphite deposit at very high. Unfortunately, these aren’t the diamonds that are in expensive jewelry today. These types of diamonds are used in tools like commercial drill bits and saws.
In 1970 the field was discovered but was not explored because they were still a part of the Soviet Union. Now that Russia is free they decided it was time to announce the news.

Air in a can
It is not a yolk!! Chen Guangbiao has sold about 1,000 cans give or take a few I guess. If you want t buy some, air, they cost the low price of ONLY $000.80 a can. If you want the same air everyone else breathes it costs ONLY well free. Air in a can is pointless.
Each can contains a chip so that during the packaging process when the negative oxygen ions reach a certain concentration level and the can is full, it seals automatically. You may be thinking, but what happens after I open it won’t it just flow out. Well, actually no it doesn’t. The air is compressed in side so you can breathe it or whatever for a long time.
Chen is donating all the money he makes, after expenses are paid of course, to the Chinese military. He did all this to try to make a point to his government. He wants them to take a good, long, and hard look at the air pollution in China.
So take care of the air!( hey that rhymes I’m so good at that and I just made that up[ well not just then , but u no what I mean] so yeah) if you want to waste money on a can of air, go ahead I’m not stopping you. Gosh I can’t get over the fact they are selling air! Are we on the moon or something? Well I better go before I do or say something I might regret.

French 'Spiderman' Alain Robert Is At It Again!
Alain Robert climbs the most challenging buildings for money
Over the years he has climbed 90 buildings, the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Opera House in Sydney. He has also scaled some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world including, the PETRONAS Twin Towers in Malaysia, the Sears Tower in the USA and even, the tallest one of all - Dubai's Burj Khalifa. The most amazing part is that most of these climbs are done untethered and without safety nets.
He climbs so of these bildings without permission. sometimes getting him into jail. His latest conquest which took place on September 22nd and was approved by the powers that be, was the world's tallest steel tower, the Central Plains Fortaleza building in Zhenzhou City, China it took him 2 hours

I read French Spiderman Alain Robert is at it again by Meera Dolasia on September 26, 2012. He climbs building for a living.

He started when he was 12years old to get in his 8th floor apartment after school because he forgot his keys in his apartment.

He suffered two major falls and broke several bones and the doctors predicting a 60% chance that he could remain handicapped for the rest of his life. After that he climbed over 90 buildings.

He is a legend in some peoples mind. Some of the climbs were not legal.

I read the article about Alain Robert, the real life Spiderman, by Meera Dolasia. It was about how he has started climbing buildings once again. It also talks about why and how he started being called the real life Spiderman. It talks about the falls he’s had, the buildings he plans to climb, and some of the buildings he already climbed.
He recently climbed the Central Plains Fortaleza building in Zhenzhou City, China. It took him two hours to climb the 880 foot tower. Some of his climbs are illegal because the city did not give him permission to climb the buildings. His climb up the Central Plains Fortaleza, the world’s tallest steel tower, was shown on TV. He has also climbed the Eiffel Tower.
During some of his climbs he wore a Spiderman costume as he scaled the towers. There are many YouTube videos of him climbing without ropes, just climbing with his bare hands. He has climbed one-hundred towers from all over the world. Every time he gets to the top he puts his hands high up in the air, to show everyone watching that he made it to the top.
This was a really interesting article, and I would recommend it to anyone. It included two YouTube videos of his climbs, one almost showing all his climbs. He truly his the real life French Spiderman.

2nd Grader Attends School Via An 'Avatar'
This passage written by Meera Dolasia, is about a boy who cannot go to school, because of his allergies. So to experience what its like to go to school the, little boy got a robot to go for him. A robot by the name of VGo (avatar). Now this little boy gets to do everything any other child gets to do, except trade his lunch.
Devon Carrow, was born with allergies that if exposed to could kill him, like milk, eggs, peanuts, and many others. He is even allergic to stuff like perfume and fabric softeners. Devon couldn’t go to school without having an allergic reaction. So instead his family got a VGo robot to go to school for him. The robot can see and hear, which allows Devon to feel like he is at school right from his computer.
The robot has a 8-10 battery life, 4 microphones, upper speaker for precise sound, and much more. Since the robot has a 8-10 hour battery life Devon can walk to the library or even go on the playground with his friends. Using the robot makes Devon’s life feel less isolated. Hopefully this robot will become used more and more from kids all over the world.

French 'Spiderman' Alain Robert Is At It Again!
Alain Robert better known as the French Spiderman began his unusual career when he was just 12-years-old. Returning from school one day, he realized he had forgotten to grab the keys to his eighth floor apartment. Too impatient to wait for his parents to come home, he decided to climb the exterior of the building and get in from the patio. He enjoyed it so much that it soon became his favorite hobby. However, at the ages of 19 and 20 he suffered two major falls, breaking several bones in both incidents. With the doctors predicting a 60% chance that he could remain handicapped for the rest of his life, things looked pretty bleak for the next six months.
Until the determined youngster recuperated completely and started climbing again. He has never looked back since. Over the years, he has climbed over 90 buildings including many famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower in Paris and the Opera House in Sydney. He has also scaled some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world including, the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia, the Sears Tower in the USA and even, the tallest one of all - Dubai's Burj Khalifa. The most amazing part is that most of these climbs are done untethered and without safety nets. All Alain needs is a good pair of shoes and a box of chalk to dry his sweaty hands.
While some of the climbs are 'legal', in that they have been sanctioned by the officials of the city and the owners of the building, most are done without permission - A habit that has gotten him into a lot of trouble and even, jail time. But to Alain, the stealth mode is the best way to go because when it is authorized, the publicity attracts people and camera crews, a situation that makes even an experienced climber like him, a little nervous. His latest conquest which took place on September 22nd and was approved by the powers that be, was the world's tallest steel tower, the Central Plains Fortaleza building in Zhenzhou City, China.
It took the 50-year-old two hours to scale the 268-meters (880 feet) to the tower's platform where he was greeted by hundreds of cheering fans. However, this latest one was a little different from his other climbs. For one, the exterior of the building is all smooth with no hand or footholds, which meant he had to use two giant suction cups and a safety rope just in case anything went wrong. Also, while the building is 388-meters tall, he was only given a permit to climb up to the platform, that lay about a 100-meters below.

I read the article called Russia’s shiny secret-A huge treasure trove of diamonds inside impact crater. It was written by Meera Dolasia. It is about Russia telling the world about a huge diamond supply they have known about for 20 years.
Since the 1970’s Russia has known about a huge diamond supply located inside Popigai Astroblem. It is a crater that is believed to have been created by an asteroid 35 million years ago. When Russia first discovered the trillions of carats they didn’t explore it because they were part of the Soviet Union.
Since Russia is an independent nation now they decided to begin mining it. They also told the world about it. These are not the type of diamonds you make jewelry out of. They are impact diamonds, the hardest known substance to man. They are used to make tools.
This article was very neat to read. Who knew Russia had that many diamonds available to them.

I chose to read the article “Air in a Can? Seriously?” written by Meera Dolasia. Philanthropist Chen Guangbiao has started selling clean and fresh oxygen in a can for people to breathe if the air around them is polluted. He has sold about 1,000 cans for 80 cents each. These cans are sold in some major cities in China.
These cans of clean oxygen are called, “Chen Guangbiao; Nice Guy”. Chen claims to have created a way to collect the air easily. The cans contain chips that seal the cans when the negative oxygen ions are concentrated. The consumer must open the can and drink it as if they would with soda. Chen is donating some cans to the military.
I chose this article because I had heard about this from my dad and wanted to know more about it. I learned that the purpose of this is to provide clean breathable air when it isn’t available. I now know that the can has a chip inside that makes the can automatically close when it’s full. This knowledge might help me if anyone ever asks me about it.

Russia’s Shiny Secret
This article is by Meera Dolasia. It is about Russian officials coming forward with a secret they’ve been hiding for twenty years. A supply of diamonds that they say is large enough to global demand for 3,000 years.
The diamond field is located inside Popigai Astroblem . It is an extremely large crater believed to be created by an asteroid 35 million years ago. The Russian officials claim that the crater contains trillions of carats. But when they discovered it in the 1970’s, they didn’t explore it because to Soviet Union already had profitable diamond mines.
Unfortunately, these are not the type of diamonds that can be made into jewelry. They are used in manufacturing. They are called impact diamonds, and are the hardest substance known to man. They are formed when a space rock hits graphite at a high velocity. The diamonds in the crater are said to be extra hard because of the pressure and high temperatures.
These diamonds are used in cutting and grinding tools like commercial drill bits and saws. They are also used in specialized high pressure lab experiments, high performance bearings, and sometimes even windows. They have strong abrasive properties as well and a large grain size.
This changed my opinion by, I didn’t think we had that many diamonds left on earth since we have mined lots.

My article is called “2nd Grader Attends School Via An ‘Avatar’”. It is by Meera Dolasia. This article is about a 2nd grade boy who may not ever get to attend a normal school because of his alter ego. He can go to school through a 4 foot tall robot and can do anything except share his lunch.
Devon is allergic to peanuts,milk,eggs and many other foods as well. He is also allergic to fabric softeners and perfume. The reason he can not attend school is because even just breathing in an allergen can result in anaphylactic shock. The robot or avatar works in a way with video and audio communtications. When Devon wants to go to the movies he as to bring his own popcorn and a sheet to cover up the seat. When he wanted friends to come over they had to shower and change clothes to play with him. And if he is to go camping he has to bring his own food and a special tent just for him.

“On the positive side, since the only foods he can safely consume are potatoes, corn and apples, he never encounters the dreaded broccoli - And, can have French fries for breakfast if he so wishes! He is also scheduled to undergo a special treatment program, which will hopefully improve his immunity so that he does not have to live such an isolated life.” This is a paragraph from the article. It would be terrible to only be about to eat potatoes corn and apples.
I chose this article because it looked interesting. I found out that is was and im glad I read it. I learned that even though you ca be allergic to many many things that you could still attend school and hang out with friends and do your work as well. In the future my knowledge will be better on this subject because you can do anything.

Robot Kid
I am summarizing the article, 2nd Grader Attends School Via an ‘Avatar’. The article is written by Meera Dolasia. The main idea is that this kid named Devon Carrow, second grader, can still come to school, even though he has to be isolated at home because of life threatening allergies. He comes to school by an ‘Avatar’, a camera he can walk around and to talk to people with, while he sits in the comfort of his own home.
Devon was born with allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs, and a few others, he is also allergic to perfumes and fabric softeners, even allergens, if he encounters any, he could die from anaphylactic shock. He may have been able to go to school, but his parents discovered the ‘avatar’, a robot that is four feet tall, has eight hours of battery life, that you can walk around, you can also communicate with other people, which means he could now go to school.
Even though he can go to school, if he wants to play with friends, he can’t go to their house, they come over to his house, and first they have to shower, and change clothes. When he goes to the movies, he covers the seat with plastic, and brings his own popcorn. If he goes on a Boy Scout trip he carries his own food and tent. The doctors want to give him a special treatment, so he might not have to have so much isolation in his life.
I chose this article because I thought it would be interesting to know why this child has to use a robot to go to school every day. I also thought it would be interesting to learn about a robot and how technology is improving. I learned how this new robot works and it is changing kids’ lives. This will help me in the future to be grateful for what I have.

French Spiderman Is At It Again!
I am summarizing an article about this guy that climbs the tallest buildings in the world. This article was written by Meera Dolasia. We all know that no one can actually climb buildings with their bare hands. No one can pull off a stunt like that. (But there is a guy named Alain Robert that makes a living climbing the tallest and most challenging buildings in the world.) (He began his strange career when he was just 12 years old.) One time he forgot his keys to his apartment, so he decided to climb to the patio into his apartment.
(When he was 19 and 20, he suffered two falls that broke several bones in both accidents.) The doctors predicted that he had a 60% chance that he could be handicapped for the rest of his life. After he healed, he started climbing again. Over the years, he has climbed over 90 buildings. He has even climbed the Eiffel Tower and the Opera House.

Alain has scaled some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world. Some include the Petronas Twin Tower and the Sears Tower. He has even scaled the tallest building in the world “Burj Khalifa” in Dubai. This has taught me that there are some scary jobs that some people do. Scaling buildings and climbing them is something I do not want to do in the future.

2nd Grader Attends School Via An 'Avatar' is by Meera Dolasia. In this article a boy may not ever be able to attend a normal school because of his allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs and lots of other foods. So, he has a 4ft tall robot who is able to do everything for him. The robot is called 'Avatar' due to the ones by James Cameron but just not as cool looking.
Thanks to this robot the kid, Devon, is able to have friends and do things a normal kid could do but just not exactly like it. He can just do it with a robot. Devon still has to do things on his own such as make his bed and things like that. He no longer lives such an isolated life. "Though life has improved immensely for the young boy since his 'Avatar' entered his life last January, things are still not easy. He has to carry his own popcorn and bring sheets to cover the seats when he goes out for movies. He cannot go out for play dates and if his friends want to come over, they have to shower and change their clothes before they are allowed to play with him. When he joins his boy scouts troupe for a camping trip, he not only carries his own food, but also, a special tent" So due to that from the article that shows he still some what has an isolated life just not as much as before his 'Avatar'

Devon Carrow has life-threatening allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs, and a lot of other foods. He also is allergic to perfumes and fabric softeners.
Lyndon Baty was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney disease. This disease weakness his immune system A LOT!

Man that climbs skyscrapers

You would never imagine that someone’s favorite hobby was to climb skyscrapers. But to Alain Robert he thought it was the most amazing thing ever. He had no fears towards it. No matter if he fell he still got back up and climbed to the top.
The only reason he started enjoying this was because on day he forgot something in his condo. And he was too impatient to wait for his parents to come home so he climbed up the building and got through the door on the patio. It seems kinda crazy to me but he enjoys it.
He has climbed most of the worlds finest building. You could probably ask him and he would tell you the exact number. Let me tell you, the number would be huge! No doubt about it! You are probably wondering, How could he never fall? Well actually he has had 2 major falls. One when he was 19 and the other when he was 20. He broke several bones in both incidents. The doctors thought that he would be handicapped or paralyzed for the rest of his life!
I think that is one crazy thing. I would never do something like that. It is too much of a risk for me. Something could just snap and you could fall and have severe injuries. Did you know that after his 2 major falls he went back and did it again once he recovered? Is that not crazy?!

I pick this article call 2nd grader attends school via an avatar. All though a lot of people moaning and groan about having to got to school each morning the truth is that it is not that bad. I mean where else can u hang with your best buds.
Born with life-threatening allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs and numerous other foods, as well as, things like perfumes and fabric softeners, Devon’s parents knew that there was no way that he could be in a classroom environment. So that the age of five when most kids starts going to go to school, Devon was confined to home school in complete isolation something the hole family was resigne to doing fot=r the rest of his life.
So they build this computer that is on wheels and it is 4 ft tall and they can see him and he can see everyone.
He is not the first kid to use it he is the second I think that would be a fun way to go to school.

Air in a can
I think that it’s a little weird for their to be air in a can and that you just open the can and breath in. and I wonder how they get the air in the can too.
Do you think that the air in your city is polluted? Then you might want to buy a can of air. This was created by Chen Guangbiao, he lives in China. And he has already sold a thousand can for $0.80 apiece!! The entrepreneur claims that he has come up with technologically advanced process to capture it efficiently.
So apparently each can contains a chip so that during the packaging process when the negative oxyen irons reach a certain concentration level and the can is full, it seals automatically. All the user has to do is open and breath in, and enjoy the fresh air. The air can be enjoyed for a long time, even after the can has open. Chen, by making these can filled with air, is trying to get the point across to try and stop air pollution.
Bottling water was once thought of as a bizarre idea and now people and bought gallons and gallons of it, and we have drunk enough water bottles to circle them around the equator with the bottles stacked end to end. So in the future is that how it’s going to be with the cans of air?? Or is it just going to be a phase?
I found out how they put air into cans and make the air stay. I guess it’s pretty cool that this guy invented air in cans, but I still think it’s a little weird too.

2nd Grader Attends School Via An ‘Avatar’
Devon Carrow realized he would probably never attend real school. That is until his alter ego, a 4-ft tall robot, he is able to attend normal school. He was born with life-threatening allergies to peanuts, milk, eggs and numerous other foods. Devon’s parents knew that there was no way the young boy would be able to survive in a normal classroom. So at age 5 when most kids are looking forward to going to kindergarten, Devon was confined to home schooling in complete isolation, something his whole family thought he was going to be doing the rest of his life until, they heard about this incredible avatar.
The 4ft tall chrome and steel VGo robot that is fitted with a television screen and acts as a two way audio/video mobile communication system may not be as cool looking as the one depicted by James Cameron. He finally gets to experience school life on a day to day basis and interact real time, with his teachers and friends. The best part is that since the robot is mobile and has a battery life of eight hours, Devon can ‘walk’ to the library, chill out with his friends during breaks and lunch and even, join them on the playground.
Devon has improved immensely for a young man since his ‘Avatar’ entered his life although things are not easy. He can’t go out for play dates and if his friends want to come over, they have to shower and change their clothes. He has to have a special tent when he is out with his boy scouts troop. He can only eat corn, potatoes, and apple.

I couldn`t imagine if I could not going to school. Because I had a disease or is allergent to a bunch of stuff. The thing that solved that was having a robot go to school for you and you can still learn by the teacher instead of being home schooled by your parents. That would make it fun for the students.
An example Devon is not the first kid to use this amazing robot, he is the youngest. The first user of this VGo robot was Knox High School Lyndon Baty. He was diagnosed with Polycystic Kidney disease, he has what like Devon when he was resigned to spending his life in isolation. The robot thing is worth 6,000 dollars in the U.S.
I chose this article because I think it`s sad for those kids that want to go to school and can`t go because they have a disorder. But they still get the feeling what school is like when they gotten the robot. I also pick this article because more technology is coming in fast so I thought this was a good one because it`s something very new. This is why I chose this passage.

A group of researchers put transporters on 7 bees. They put a flower in a field. The bees actually found it. A scientist recorded movement on bees. The bees were allowed to forage for 7 hours. They collected the distance and speed every day. The most interesting thing was that they can take 120 possible routs. But the bees always took the shortest rout.as you can see bees are amazing insects.

French ‘Spiderman’ Alian Robert Is At It Again!

Who thinks that a man can’t climb buildings with his bare hands. No, well think again. Alian Robert is known as the French Spiderman. He began his “career” when he was twelve. He had realized he had forgotten to grab his keys for his eighth floor apartment. Too impatient for his parents to get home he started to climb the building and get in from the patio.
He enjoyed it so much it soon became his favorite hobby. At the ages of nineteen and twenty he suffered two major falls breaking several bones in both incidents. Doctors predicted a sixty percent chance of him remaining handicapped for the rest of his life. Things didn’t look good until he had fully recovered six months. He hasn’t stopped ever since.
Over the years he has climbed over ninety buildings. One of which is the Eiffel Tower in Paris. He has even climbed the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia and the Sears Tower. He doesn’t even use safety nets below him when he is climbing. All he needs is a good pair of shoes and a box of chalk for his sweaty hands.
I think it is cool that he does this. I am surprised he does this since how dangerous it is. I wouldn’t even see how it is legal to do some of this stuff.

Russian officials revealed to the world a secret that has been known to them for twenty years - A diamond supply that they claim is vast enough to fulfill global demand for at least, the next 3,000 years.
Discovered in the 1970's the diamond field is located inside Popigai Astroblem, a 62-mile diameter crater believed to have been created by an asteroid, 35 million years ago. They say that when they first discovered the trillions of carats, they did not to explore it, because they were then a member of the Soviet Union which already had immensely profitable diamond mines and were also manufacturing synthetic diamonds. Now that Russia is an independent nation they decided it was time to begin mining and also, let the world into their secret

I am writing about “Scientists Learn How Bumblebees Solve Complex ‘Traveling Salesman Problem’ So Effortlessly.” Why I am writing about this passage is because I thought this one was the easier one to work on or I just didn’t like the other ones. Bumblebees are known as “The Traveling Salesman Problem” at least I assume that thy are or a the solution that is found in paragraph one when it says “Scientists have always known that in order to forage for nectar as efficiently as they do, the tiny bumblebee had figured out the perfect solution to what is commonly referred to as 'The Traveling Salesman Problem.” One that takes even humans with supior brain seek out the help of computers to solve.
So far what I think about the whole bumblebees doing all of these solutions and stuff is that in my head I don’t really believe that these tiny insects can. Actually solve things for you its actually you thinking of these things yourself and thinking it’s the bees. Anyway as the passage says is “In the past, scientists had theorized that the tiny insect did this by using cognitive maps, that is by memorizing the surroundings inside its tiny brain. However, nobody had ever observed the insects closely enough to verify if this indeed was the case, until recently.” Ok so what they are saying is that the bees carry out things in order to carry these things to our scientist.
Starting now in October of 2012 is that scientist are training them and after they are trained the scientist set up a field of flowers for the bees. What was the most interesting to the researchers was that out of the 120 possible routes, the bees only needed to try 20 to figure out the most efficient and shortest one. So while the first time the bee would travel about 2,000 meters, by the final attempt it would have figured out how to reduce it to less than 500! What surprised the scientists the most was not only how quickly they were able to deduce the shortest route, but also, that they were able to remember it all inside their tiny brain that contains less than one million neurons!

Air in a Can

People in China are worrying about their air being polluted and they are considering breathing in fresh air from a can. A Chinese businessman and philanthropist, Chen Guangbiao, had already sold 1,000 cans at 80 cents per can.
These cans are called Chen Guangbiao: Nice Guy and are being sold in pop up stores in some of China’s popular cities. According to the billionaire, he states that he use a technologically way to capture the air.
Each can has a chip, so during the packaging when the negative oxygen ions reach a certain concentration level and when the can is full, it seals all by itself. When the user “drinks” out of these cans, he can enjoy it a lot longer since the air is compressed.
The money the billionaire makes goes to the China’s military.
