I’m doing the article "Tough Mudder" by Meera Dolasia. The “Tough Mudder”, a 12 mile obstacle course that consists of water, mud, fire, and electricity.
The obstacles are so tough that one in five contestants drop out along the way - Those that do get through it, take about 4 hours to complete the course. The inaugural Scottish event attracted 90,000 athletes who paid about $150USD each, to participate in the challenge that entailed overcoming 30 obstacles.
Whether this is the World's toughest athletic event or not, really depends on each individual athlete's perception of what tough really means - Running a 135 miles ultra-marathon is not for the faint of heart either.
But the biggest advantage Tough Mudder has over all the other challenges is that it is a fun event - One where contestants are not trying to outdo each other because, there are no major prizes to be won at this challenge - Just a cold glass of beer or root beer and a group of cheering friends that help get you through this grueling event.
I choose this event because it sounded like something I would like. I think this would be a cool thing to watch but not to do. I didn’t know what this was until I read this. I think if you do this your dead. . . Mr.Thornhill. I will definitely not ever do this in the future

I read the article about the Hiriko, the eco-friendly car being tested in Europe. This article was obviously about an electric car being built. It has a bunch of features, making driving very easy. It will be in a select few cities, including San Francisco. In the future the company is making two other models. These two models are the convertible style called the Alai and a small truck called the Laga. You can obviously see why I chose this article written by Meera Dolasia.
The Hiriko does not have any doors; its front window opens up and becomes a door. This allows both the passenger and the driver to get out. The car also has tires that can turn 60 degrees sideways, allowing it to parallel park very easy. The car can even fold up without hurting the driver. It goes from 100 inches to 60 inches.
The steering wheel is like an airplanes steering wheel. You pull back to go backwards, push forward to go, and pull sideways to go sideways. This car might only hold two people, but with the low price of $17,000, many people still would purchase this eco-friendly car. One other good thing about this electric car is that you can go 75 miles between charges.
So you can now understand what the future cars will look like. I think this car is really cool, and so do a lot of people who have read this article. There’s only one thing I don’t like about this car… if you got in a wreck, it might not be so pretty!

Tough Mudder

I am writing about tough mudder. I am writing about tough mudder because it looks like it would be an interesting athletic event. I think I would like to do it.

The tough mudder obstacle course is 12 miles long that drags people through mud, fire, and 10,000 volts of electric current. It would be difficult to do this obstacle course for me because I would be scared of getting electrocuted. Will Dean made the tough mudder course in 2009. He made it for athletes that are bored of mundane marathons and triathlons.

The obstacles are so tough that one in five contestants drop out along the way. It takes 4 hours to complete the course. That is how long it takes marathon runner to run 26.5 miles. The hurdles have a mile long muddy ditch you have to walk through, also you have to jump into an ice filled area and then run through fire 4 feet tall. The people that want to enter pay about 150USD each.

That is why I think it would be fun to be in this activity. It is kind of dangerous but it seems like it would be a lot of fun. I would want to be in the activity because you can walk through mud, run through fire, and walk through ice.

Face-Kinis

My summery is from the article “Chinese Beach Lovers Avoid harmful UV Rays With The ‘Fashionable’ Face-Kini”. This article was written by, Meera Dolasia. I have chosen this article, because it looked like something that could become very helpful to the whole world especially with the rising temps.

Face-Kini was invented to keep UV rays from harming your face. UV rays can lead to many health problems, like skin damage or even eye damage. With face-Kini you don’t have to worry about any of those things. Face-Kini can even protect you from bugs and jellyfish stings.

If you want to protect more than your face, you can get the stylish full body suit. The full body suit is just like the Face-Kini except it covers your whole body, except your hands and feet. Both the Face-Kinis and the full body suits come in different colors and patterns.

I read how long can you resist a marshmallow. It is by Meera Dolasia on 8/20/2012. Scientists seeing how long kids can resist a marshmallow. The older kids can resist a marshmallow long than the smaller kids can.

The whole idea of the test is to see how kids can resist stuff in life so they can save money in life. And so scientists can have something to do with kids.

It allows have to do with public health in satiety. So public health can see how to stop kids from getting fat.

The rinse I chose the article is because I like marshmallows. The article was cool but I steal like marshmallows.

I read the article about the soccer ball that charges electricity. It was written by Meera Dolasia. It was invented by Julia Silverman and Jessica Matthews. It was about a soccer ball that can charge electricity by playing with it. It could help lots of people in countries without electricity.
It was started with what they called an aha moment. They thought that they could capture some of the energy that generates from playing sports. They hoped that they could turn that energy into electricity. Soccer is a very popular sport in many countries.
In Africa soccer is one of the most played sports. A prototype of it was sticking a shake- to-charge flashlight in a hamster ball. It has enough power to charge an LED lamp for three hours after just playing for 30 minutes. It only weighs 5 more ounces.
This is a very good invention. It can help people in other countries without electricity. I am very glad they made this invention.

How long can you resist a marshmallow?

In this article they do an experiment on 4 year olds to see how long they could go without eating a marshmallow that was set in front of them. This article was by Meera Dolasia on 08\20/2012.
If they could go 20 minutes without eating it they could have another. They found out that older kid could resist it longer than younger kids. When these kids were older they talked to their parents about how they act about waiting for stuff now that they’re older. They said that the kids that waited to eat the marshmallow were able to wait longer on other stuff.
Only about a third of the kids were able to resist eating the marshmallow. If they ate the marshmallow before the 20mins were up they would receive no additional treats.
I read this article and done my article review was because I thought it would be interesting. It’s a really interesting article and if you think this would interest you should read it.

How Long Can You Resist A Marshmallow
I read the article, How Long Can You Resist A Marshmallow by Meera Dolasia. It involves children trying to resist a marshmallow. Its sounds like a weird experiment but its actually kind of cool. It was researched by University of Stanford scientist, Walter Mischel. It a now legendary test called the ‘Stanford Marshmallow’ test.
The main idea of the article is seeing if the kids were competent enough to resist the enticing marshmallow lying before them. You can tell from the video and the pictures that it was very hard. It is a very unusual test was conducted between 1968-1970. Kids between the ages of 4 and 6 were asked to sit at a table inside a room with one marshmallow residing on a plate. If they could resist the marshmallow for 20 minutes they could have another.
The childrens behavior were watched by a scientist behind a one-way mirror. They observed that only about a third of the children waited to eat the marshmallow. The older the kid was the better they could resist. Only a few ate the marshmallow right away. Many young children were able to wait anyway.
It changed my opinion by letting me know little kids have some self-control. It makes me see them in a different way. It was found that by waiting twenty minutes the kids as adults were able to maintain a healthy weight. It affected their entire lives! This was a very interesting article and I was glad to read it!

I chose to review the article about the Stanford “Marshmallow test” written by Meera Dolasia. This article states how scientist Walter Mischel concluded that the amount of time you can resist a marshmallow can shape your entire future.
The “Stanford Marshmallow” test was conducted from 1968 to 1970. 4, 5, and 6 year old children were sat in a room and were given a marshmallow. They were told that if they could wait to eat it for twenty minutes, they could have another. Once they ate it, they had to ring a little bell in front of them, but they would not get another once they ate it. During this process, Mischel watched through one way mirror. Only about a third of the kids were able to wait the whole time to get another marshmallow. Also, the older the child was, the better their resistance power. Very few actually ate the treat right away.
Years later when the kids were fully grown, Mischel checked back with them. He talked to their parents, and found that those who resisted the marshmallow the whole twenty minutes were thought to be more competent, or skilled, by their parents. Also all of the resisters scored an average of 210 points or higher on their SAT’s. They were also better at planning and handling stress.
Tanya Schlam and some of her colleagues decided to see the same group of kids for a different purpose. They wanted to know if the ones who could resist the marshmallows also maintained a healthy weight. It was actually directly related to the minutes of their resistance.
I chose this article because it looked interesting. It was really not what I expected it to be about at all, but I learned a lot. I didn’t know that how you acted when you were four or five could show how you might act later in life.

How Long Can You Resist a Marshmallow?
Resisting a single marshmallow for 20 minutes? Sounds east right? Well it may sound extremely funny not even true, but it could shape your entire future. At least that is the conclusion reached by University of Stanford scientist Walter Mischel. He invented the 'Stanford Marshmallow' test.
Only 1/3 of the of the kids were a able to resist the urge to devour the marshmallow. The parents of the kids who participating in the test reported that the kids who resisted the marshmallow for twenty minutes actually were smarter than those who didn’t. They all scored an average of 210 points higher on their Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores than the rest of the group. They were also better at planning and handling stress.
Recently, Tanya Schlam at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health along with some of her colleagues decided to contact the same group of kids when they were older. She did to see if they actually weighed less than those who couldn’t rest the urge to eat it.
Marshmallows telling your future? At first that sounded pretty crazy, but now it doesn’t seem all that weird. I wish someone would have conducted that test on me when I was little just to see what would happen. It really sounds like something that may be a coincidence, but then again it may not.

My article name is Baby Kangaroo and Wombat Forge An Unusual Friendship. It is by Meera Dolasia. Their mothers both got hit by cars so, they are now kept in a man-made pouch together. They listen to each other’s heartbeat to be calm.
Both are from South East Australia in the wild.” Though the two youngsters now lead a happy and comfortable life neither, had a good start, given that both were orphaned after their mothers got hit by cars - A common occurrence in the region because these animals largely forage at night and are often difficult to see, on the unlit country roads.” This is a paragraph from the story.
They will eventually depart because the kangaroo will be much much bigger. They spend all day touching noses and grooming eachother. They are both herbivores and get along amazingly well.
I chose this articl because it looked realy cute. I read it and knew that this was the article I was going to do.I feel I learned that no matter how different you are you can always be friends with someone different than you. It added that a kangaroo and a wombat can actually get along. This will help me later because I will know that anything is possible and anything can happen.

Can You Resist the Marshmallow?
I am summarizing the article on How Long Can You Resist A Marshmallow? The author is Meera Dolasia. The main idea is that if you can resist a marshmallow, you will most likely have a higher score on your ACT tests. You are also better at handling stress, and planning for things. So eating a marshmallow can affect your future.
How long can you resist a marshmallow? Scientists have been studying this on children ages 4-6. A few years later, they discovered the kids that resisted the marshmallows, scored higher on their SAT tests than the other kids. They are also very good at handling stress and planning for parties and things. Not very many kids gobbled the marshmallow right away.
The scientists observed that only a third were able to wait twenty minutes. Their older siblings had more resistance power than the younger kids. If the kids couldn’t wait the twenty minutes could ring a bell.
This study has been going on for years and they will keep studying. Waiting for the marshmallow helps you maintain a healthy weight. So eating a marshmallow affects your future.

This article is called Hiriko an Eco-Friendly Car With a Unique Talent. This article was written by Meera Dolasia. This article talked about a new car called a Hiriko. It’s very different from any other car. This car has been here since 2010.
“It can fold to almost half its size (from 100 to 60 inches) with just a touch of a button, thanks to a clever mechanism that tucks the rear of the car under its chassis - all without harming the driver and passenger inside.” This makes it easier to fit into tight parking spots. “The car has no doors. Instead its windshield doubles up as the doors enabling both the driver and passenger to escape from the front without any danger of scraping the sidewalk or the other Hiriko's parked in close.”
“Its zero turn 'robot' wheels can twist 60 degrees left or right enabling the car to travel sideways, making parallel parking a cinch!” If for some reason its futuristic look does not quite catch your fancy, you can wait for the other two models that are already in pre-production stage - A convertible called Alai and a small truck called Laga! This car is $17,000.
I chose this article because I wanted to read about this very different car. I learned that there is a car that can fold up and is powered by all-electric zero emission. It changed and added to my knowledge, because I never knew about this car. This helped me because if I ever wanted a diferent type of car then I would know about this one.

I am doing, “how long can you resist a marshmallow?” Where they got 4 year olds and they tried to see how many could wait 20-30 minutes for a marshmallow. The person who made this was Meera Dolasia. And the scientists who help observe was Walter Mishel.
The children were told if they would get a second marshmallow, but only if they could resist eating the first one until the woman came back appx. 20mins. Before devouring the marshmallow they had to ring a bell. The ones who waited the 20 min. did better on their SAT.
Most of the kids sniffed the marshmallow as if sniffing it could make them wait longer or they could inhale there goodness.

How Long Can Your Resist A Marshmallow?

For this article entry I am doing the article “How Long Can You Resist A Marshmallow”. This article is by Meera Dolasia. In this article it explains a test called, the “Stanford Marshmallow” test. The test is trying to make you resist eating a marshmallow for at least 20 minutes. This test was made up by University of Stanford scientist Walter Mischel. If you keep reading, you will find out the solution to this test.

Children between the ages 4-6 were invited individually and seated at a table inside a room and a single marshmallow on a plate. They have to do this for at least 20 minutes. Very few were able to make it to 20 minutes. Most just sat down and devoured it right then. If you got to 20 minutes you would be rewarded with another.

Things got even more interesting a few years later. The kids that could actually resist the marshmallow fro 20 minutes turned out to be smarter than the others. Most of them scored over 100 points higher on their SATs, than the other who couldn’t last. They were also better at organizing and planning and handling stress.

I agree with this article since I read it. I think that I could possibly pass the 20 minutes. Depending on how long ago I ate something. This was a very interesting!

This article is by Meera Dolasia
This article is about two animals who have lost both of their mothers. The baby kangaroo is lonely in the zoo so the workers put in a baby wombat. They are lifelong pals not to mention world famous. Though the two youngsters now lead a happy comfortable life neither had a good start, given that both were orphaned after their mothers got hit by cars. A common occurrence in the region because these animals largely forage at night and are often difficult to see, on the unit country roads.
When Anzac was brought to the center, he seemed to desperately miss his mother. In an attempt to provide him with some comfort the center officials decided to pair him up five month old Peggy who also appeared a little forlorn. Sure enough, the two began to get along a fat tick likes a lazy dog so much so
While the center officials believe that the two will always have a soft spot for each other they also realize that the current coziness will come to an end once the two outgrow the hand kit woolen pouch. If Anzac grows to his full potential he will weigh up to 100 pounds and leap around at speeds over 25 miles an hour. Though Peggy can grow to weigh as much as half his weight she will never be able to keeps up with him even if Anzac slows his leaps down to tiny hops
Therefore the center so already making sure they have other pals to keeps them company when the inevitable parting happens. Te two cuddle buddies share a nursery with two baby wallabies and five other joeys, which all seem to get along amazingly well, spending the day touching noses and grooming each other

Hiriko

I’m writing about the article ‘’Hiriko-An Eco-Friendly Car with an Unique Talent,’’ by Meera Dolasia. Hiriko is an energy efficient car designed to make it easier to live in urban area. Hiriko can fold to half its size! No more worrying about tough parking spaces. Really Hiriko can fold to half its size with just a push of a button. All the thanks to a mechanism that tucks the rear end of the car under its chassis. The windshield opens up as a door. Passengers don’t have to worry about dinging someone else’s car if parked to close. One more thing, Hiriko also has a steering wheel like an airplane yoke. To go faster just push the stick forward and to go slower do the opposite. The car’s wheels can twist 60 degrees right or left. So parallel parking is super easy! I chose to write about this article because this Hiriko car sounded pretty cool to me! I feel like I learned that the world we live in today is inventing new things every day. This article helped better understand how smart cars (as I call them) work. All this information might help me if I ever wanted to buy a Hiriko car someday.

The futuristic looking two-seater which has been in the works since 2010, is a collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Media Lab Group and Spanish redevelopment agency DENOKINN. Conceived as an alternative to bicycles for people who live in urban areas, the car has a unique talent - It can fold to almost half its size (from 100 to 60 inches) with just a touch of a button, thanks to a clever mechanism that tucks the rear of the car under its chassis - all without harming the driver and passenger inside. What this means is that up to three and a half of these cute little cars can be parked rear to rear in a single parking bay!

That's not the only unconventional feature inside this cool car. In lieu of the normal steering wheel and brake, the inventors have installed a device that resembles an airplane yoke. To accelerate or decelerate, all the driver has to do is push the control stick back and forth. To turn, they simply turn the yoke control left or right. If that's not impressive enough, its zero turn 'robot' wheels can twist 60 degrees left or right enabling the car to travel sideways, making parallel parking a cinch!

The best part is that this is not a concept car, but one that is currently being tested in Europe. If all goes well, the Hiriko will soon be available in Barcelona, Berlin and San Francisco, where the manufacturers plan to sell it to the local municipalities for their car-sharing program.

Tough Mudder
This article is based on the tough mudder competitions. These competitions take place all over the world. There’s no reward for finishing the competition.
The tough mudder competitions are usually 12 miles long. Through the competition there are different obstacles you have to overcome. One is a bobbed wire fence you have to crawl under. Another is running through a burning field.
There is some people who make it through, but not very many. People do these challenges to see if there strong enough to finish. Not many are.

Four days following the successful July 16th, 1969 Apollo 11 earth it moved into the moon’s orbit.” Once that happened the Lunar module - Eagle, along with its two passengers, Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, separated from the Command Module, leaving the crew's third member Michael Collins in charge”
“The then 38-year old returned to earth a hero, receiving all kinds of honors and medals not just in the USA but also, from countries all across the globe.” True to his nature he left NASA shortly and spent the rest of this life pursuing personal engineering and aviation interest shunning any kind of publicity completely.

Is Tough Mudder the World's Hardest Athletic Challenge? You Decide!
Tough Mudder
The tough mudder competition is the world’s hardest competition. It was mad in the #1 state Hawaii it started in 2009 by will dean a former British counter-terrorism agent as a way to bring some fun and variety for athletes bored of mundane marathons and triathlons, it has today become a popular challenge, that is held in many parts of the world including, Europe, USA, Canada, Japan and even, South Africa.
So did u know that The obstacles are so tough that one in five contestants drop out along the way and the ones that don’t drop out take about 4 hours to complete the course that is about the same time an average marathon runner to run 26.2 miles.
So this is the World’s Toughest Mudder challenge, a 24 hour challenge that takes place annually in November however entry to this is reserved for qualified contestants only.
What can be tougher or more grueling than Hawaii's Ironman Triathlon or the Bad water in the Ultra marathon? A 12-mile obstacle course that drags contestants through mud, fire, and even 10,000 volts of electric current. So tell me if u had ever done something harder.

How Long Can You Resist A Marshmallow

How Long Can You Resist A marshmallow. Meera Dolasis wrote an article explaining this. Did you know that scoffing down a marshmallow would affect your entire life?The University of Stanford scientist Walter Mishel proved this theory. He took a group of kids, ages 4-6 and put a desired snack food in front of them.
Mishel wanted to see how long they could resist the treat. He told them if they could resist the treat for twenty minutes they would be rewarded with another. The kids that didn’t resist it for twenty minutes or more would not be rewarded. The children were observed from a one-way mirror. What they observed shocked them. Only the children tested, that were able to wait the required time had better resistance power.
Years later the scientist contacted the parents of the kids that were tested and sent them a detailed questionnaire. What they found was that the children that had good resistance with the marshmallow when they were little were sense more competent. What they found more interesting was a few years later was that the kids that resisted the marshmallow when they were little had an average of about 210 points higher on their SAT scores than the other kids. They were also better at handling stress.
When I first read the summary of this article it sounded really interesting. Now I’ve read the article I think that the whole purpose was a little dumb. I think they should possibly test a different theory.

Saturday August 25, Neil Armstrong passed away from complications to a heart surgery he underwent this month. He was reported doing well following the surgery; the news was a big shock to millions of his fans. He often-repeated “That’s one small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind.”

Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin (also known as Buzz) spent more than 2 hours exploring the moon. They collect over 45 pounds of moon rocks and soil! They did this before reconnecting with the Command Module that was still revolving in the moon’s orbit. Neil Armstrong received a lot of honors and medals from countries across the globe.
Mr. Armstrong was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio. At the age of six he was fascinated with airplanes and was going with his father on a flight. When Armstrong turned 15, he had obtained his pilot’s license.
He went to Purdue University to get his bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering. He also went to the University of Southern California to obtain a master’s in aerospace engineering. He served in the U.S Navy.

Neil Armstrong spent 7 years as a test pilot. He logged flying time over 200 different types of aircrafts that included jets, rockets, helicopters, and gliders. Mr. Armstrong will be missed.

This is a bicycle that is made of cardboard and it’s water resistant. The task at hand turned out to be harder then he thought .He told three people about the water resistant bike. Normally they just use cardboard for box’s but no they have a bike.
“The bicycle enthusiast came up with idea after he heard about a working canoe that had been crafted from cardboard.” There’s really good things about this bike its different from all the other bikes.

Hiriko This car is all electric zero emission car. this car can go 75 miles between charges. This car would be a great car because of gas prices.
This car is eco friendly . this car is also good for tight places. This car can shrink to half its size.
The hiriko has no doors the wind shield doubles into a door. the car also has air plane button. this button is called airplane yoke it turns the wheels at an angle so the car can turn 60 degree angle.
The hiriko also has no gas or brake pedals. The steering sets on a stick. You have to push the stick forward or backward and that’s the way the vehicle will go.as you can see this car is unique and different.

This is about NASA’s new Z1 space suit. It is very versatile and is strong. It can with stand a lot of space debris. It has a bulky but helpful primary life system. That includes, a survival kit, oxygen tank, a device for getting rid of carbon dioxide that u breathed out, etc etc etc.
The first and biggest improvement over the current space suit design is the amount of time it takes to put on. There is many reasons why they made it easy to put on. One, I an emergency happens on the ship they can quickly put on the suits and leave. It is very good to be able to put the suit on fast.
The suit has many features. One feature is its own air-lock. A primary life support subsystem. It is the backpack. That’s the new z1 suit

The article also says what if u can last 20 minutes I probably could and some othersbut that would be so hard I love marshmallows . “Believe it or not, the answer to that simple question, could shape your entire future - At least that, is the conclusion reached by University of Stanford scientist Walter Mischel the brainchild behind the now legendary 'Stanford Marshmallow' test.” This is what the article says about the 20 minute question.
When you get older you can last a little bit longer then 4-6 year olds. If you set a cookie pretzel or marshmallow or even any other god treats on a table in front of them they will probably take it right then. They took a test for the 4-6 year olds and see how long they could last 20 mins or longer “They were told that if they could resist the treat for 20 minutes, they would be rewarded with another. Those that that were unable to wait, simply had to ring a bell that lay in front of them before devouring it”

THE POPINATOR
The popinator is a machine that ‘’pops’’ popcorn into your mouth. The makers of Pop Indiana invented it. I think it is good idea to invent this, but also a waste of money. Although there are a lot of dumb people out there in the crazy place we call … EARTH!!!
The popinator is voice activated. The person only has to say, “POP!” The popinator uses binaural, or recorded through 2 separate microphones + trans. through 2 separate channels, to find where the person to pop it at.
The popinator is not for sale to the general public, but it may or not ever be. Could you imagine it being portable???? Maybe a common household item? It could be anything. So beware children of the future the popinator is coming!!
“COME WITH ME IF YOU WANT TO POP”

I read about the Tough Mudder. It is a obstacle course. A lot of marathon runners do it. I read it because my best friend's mom is doing it next weekend. It's called the Tough Mudder because it is real hard. There is mud and an electric fence you crawl under with 10,000 volts. They take 4 hours to finish the course. You should read the article. It's cool.
