Giant squids have exist forever, but never really seen. Thank to Japan reseachers, we can finally get a glimpse of a huge invertebrate. However, it was not a easy task. They had to decide where to look for these invertebrate, like water east of Japan.
The search undertaken in a SWEET sub that can go 2,066 feet under the sea. It took 400 hr. and 100 trips for the 3 man crew. When the found the 9-10 ft. squid, they were able to flim it.

I read mine craft As a Mandatory Subject in School? Sweet! By Meera Dolasia on January 19, 2013.kids use it and there imagination to use in it.

Schools in other countries use it in school and the kids have good imagination it is cool. You create a world of your own imagination. Kids also have a good grade in school.

The school does not have any fight in the school or school yard with this.” We wonder if any school in the US would even consider such a drastic curriculum addition - And how parents would react.”

It is cool and the kids have fun doing it in school and it is good for your brain.

Ireland's Loughareema Lake Plays Mind Games by Randomly Vanishing. There is an old legion that a man went to cross the lake and drowned. Some people believe this is why the lake disappears. However this has a natural explanation. There is absorbable limestone under the lake. So there is pretty much a drain, the limestone absorbs the water and then it releases the water and it reappears. The lake can be found along a coastal road, a few miles away from the seaside town of Ballycastle, the ‘magical’ lake has become somewhat a big tourist attraction.

I read the article “Who Was….Martin Luther King” by Meera Dolasia. The article tells of Mr. King’s life and the inauguration of Barack Obama. “Today, 45 years after his death, we still honor this great man and his passion for equality, by celebrating his life on the third Monday of every January. Thanks to him and his 'radical' vision, America is slowly but surely, become a nation where a person is judged by his/her merit not, color of skin.” This quote from the article tells what the article is mostly about.
The article is very interesting and full of imformation. This next quote I will state gives an idea of what the article is about. “In June 1963, President John F. Kennedy asked the US Congress to pass a civil rights bill that would give all Americans equal access to public places. To try convince the officials to approve it, Dr. King along with other civil rights leaders asked people to come to Washington D.C. and stage a peaceful march to demonstrate their support. Over 250,000 people from all over the country flew, drove, rode buses and even walked to participate in what the history books call the March on Washington! It was here, standing on steps of the Lincoln Memorial that Dr. King gave his most quoted, 'I have a dream' speech, in which he articulated his vision of a country where everyone would be equal.” I believe this article is something all students should read to learn the amazing life of Martin Luter King Jr.
I hope you will read this article and enjoy the history that it holds. It is one of the most interesting article we have read so far.

The article I read is called Elusive Giant Squid Finally Caught On Camera. It is by Meera Dolasia. It is about how Japanese researchers caught a squid on camera. It is the worlds largest invertebrate.
“The search was undertaken in a specially built submarine that was lowered 2,066 feet into the dark cold waters of the northern Pacific Ocean. It took 400 hours and more than 100 trips for the three-man crew sitting inside the cramped submersible to find one.” This is a paragraph from the article. It talks about how long it took to find the largest squid and how many trips it took. The submarine was lowered 2,066 feet into the Pacific Ocean.
“That's because the giant squid spent the entire time hanging vertically in the water, munching away on the bait of a smaller species of squid that the deep sea expert had laid out for it. Once it was done, the animal came to check out Kubodera's camera but soon decided that it did not like the taste, and swam away.” This is another paragraph from the article. It talks about how the squid found the camera underwater and checked it out. The squid apparently it like the taste of the camera and swam away.
I read this article because it looked interesting. I learned a lot about the squid and about the trip to find it.

Ireland’s Disappearing Loughareema Lake

I read the article, ‘Ireland’s Loughareema Lake Plays Mind Games By Randomly Vanishing’, by Meera Dolasia.
Loughareema Lake in Ireland is famous for sporadically disappearing and reappearing. It may seem like your mind is playing tricks on you, but it isn’t. The lake draws tourists to the town of Ballycastle and is legendary as a somewhat magical lake. The lake is far from magical, though. The reason has to do with the area’s rock structure.
The rock underneath the ground is extremely porous limestone, which is similar to chalk, the kind that you use to draw pictures upon your sidewalk. In normal cases, this would not cause the lake to disappear, but part of the topsoil eroded and created a drain which leads right to the porous limestone. That is where the water disappears to.
This ‘drain’ gets clogged sometimes, like every other ordinary drain. It gets clogged up with peat, especially after rains. The water must stay upon the surface and turns itself into a lake. When the peat washes away, the lake promptly vanishes, just like that.
This article was fun and interesting to read. I enjoyed it greatly!!

OH MINECRAFT YOU DID IT AGAIN ! ! ! !
I am summarizing an article about a school in Sweden that in one class, they play Minecraft. This article was posted on January 19, 2013. This article was posted by Meera Dolasia.
Sweden is a cool place for kids to grow up in. They have a concept of schools with no grades or classrooms. Schools in Sweden have amazing playgrounds and is now making teenagers play Minecraft as a class.
(This idea was planted when the government of Sweden organized a national school competition called ‘Future City’.) The government of Sweden is doing this so classrooms can submit creations they made for the future of Sweden.
I think it’s a good idea to have a class where you can design architecture for the future. I don’t understand why they use Minecraft. Everything in the game is block formed so you can’t design anything curved. I think using an architecture/designing program would a more realistic choice. If I was a Sweden student, I would like to use the game ‘The Sims 3’ to design buildings.

I read Winning At All Costs . . . . . . A Good Strategy? It's about Lance Armstrong and how other athletes use steriods to win in whatever sport they are playing. To make them either enhance their play or to just win. Lance Armstrong kept his secret for 11 years. He even threatened people that said they'd expose his secret. "Sadly enough over the years, he had managed to convince himself that he was not really doing anything wrong" Armstrong disappointed thousands of fans I'm sure. He was probabaly a role model to many people until they found out this.

I read the article “Winning at All Cost…A Good Strategy?”. Lance Armstrong admitted to taking steroids. He, along with 11 of his teammates, took steroids during The Tour de France bike race.
Armstrong filed a lawsuit against Emma O’Reilly, their former masseuse, for spreading vicious rumors. No one knows why Lance Armstrong didn’t admit to taking the steroids in the first place.
Lance Armstrong was stripped of his seven titles in October 2011 and he is now ban from competitive cycling for life.

This week I am reading who was Martin Luther King, JR? Martin Luther King, JR is Minster, saint, hero civil rights activist that would describe Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia on January 15, 1929. Dr. Kings frist encounter with apartheid was at the age of six because his best friend was white and he had to move to another school. That when his parents explained to him that he lived in a city that the whites and the blacks led totally disparate lives.

i read the article about Ireland's Loughareema lake vanishing. the lake sometimes vanishs then reappears days later. this is due to the fact that the lake is formed over andincredibly porus tpye of limestone. the water is sucked down into this limestone if there isn't any soil over the limestone. after heavy rains the soil is stired up and covers the limestone so taht the water can't drain. then after a long period of time without rain the soil is worn away and then the lake drains. in conclusion, this is a very werid thing and many of the locals enjoy telling ghost stories about why the lake drains.
