My summer is about 35-mile Laser Rainbow Lights up New York Skies to Honor Hurricane Sandy Victims, By Meera Dolasia. On Tuesday November 26th to Thursday November 28th, New York residents were treated to an unusual but glorious sight 35-mile rainbow. That lit up the cloudy night skies all the way from Manhattan to the hurricane ravaged Brooklyn. Color was not a freak act of nature, but a powerful work of art created by German artist Yvette Mattern. The name of the storm was 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. Though the art installation was not specially created for New York City they have previously been displayed across Europe and even at the London Olympic. It served as great symbol of hope and restoration for the residents that are still recovering from the devastation and trying to re-build their lives the best they can!

Hawaii’s Big Island is home to the world’s most active volcanoes. But none are dynamic or wonderful as Kilauea and been erupting all the time. Now it is erupting with a huge explosion.
The lava starts to edge to the ocean in October and was not until Nov. when it reach the water and this show is attracting a lot of people to watch and are being told to keep a safe distance.
This volcano is not even classified as a stand-alone volcano but to be an off shooter.
There is a myth about a guy named Pele who was exiled by her father, the maker, and sent her to Hawaii. There she screamed and dug fire pits.

I read Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Spills into the Ocean, By Meera Dolasia on December 2, 2012. Though 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.

It took seven miles to reach the ocean. And it took 26 to 27 day to reach the ocean.

It has a plumbing system of more than 60k below the surface

Surfers visiting Sydney's world famous Bondi Beach on Tuesday November 26th were in for a little shock the normally clear blue ocean waters had turned a red! However, before you get all concerned, it was not the result of a shark attack, or oily tomato sauce as was the original rumor! Instead the culprit is an overabundance of algae called noctiluca scintillans or sea sparkle.
Known to happen frequently in the oceans around California, this occurrence is called Red Tides. This happens when microscopic organisms become concentrated in small sections of the ocean. Australian authorities believe that this latest increase in population can be the cause of a recent up swell that brought in nutrient rich waters to the coastline.
The best part about the Red Tides is that while they may appear a little concerning during the day, at night the organisms become bioluminescent thanks to a chemical reaction caused when they hit against each other in the ocean waves. This makes the ocean wave glow. I would love to see this at night it would be an awesome sight! By shawna

23rd Makeover Of Sweden's Ice Hotel Is Fabulous And Freezing!
The reason I read this article was because I thought that it sounded interesting. This article is about a hotel in Sweden made entirely out of ice. No matter what room they are in the temperature is always the same a temperature of about 9° below freezing (23°F). that is what this article was about.

The article I am reading is called “Crimson Waters Cause Several Sydney Beaches To Close.” It is written by Meera Dolasia. It is about the world famous Bondi Beach. It turned crimson red! It was not from a shark attack..it was from a type of algae called noctiluca scintillans.
“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.” This is a paragraph from the article. It says that this algae is not harmful to humans at all so you could still swim in our or surf or anything like that. This algae wont stay there forever. It doesn’t last very long. It was closed though due to the algae but was opened back up on Tuesday.
“However, as the microorganisms die and sink in the shallow waters of the coastline, they decompose and cause areas of low oxygen. If the depletion is severe, as seems to be the case here, it does kill marine animals that reside in these zones.” This is also a paragraph from the article. It talks about how this algae does kill marine animals. When the microrganisms die and then sink into the lower waters of the shore line they decompose and cause the areas to have low oxygen in those areas. That then kills the marine animals.
I chose this article because it looked interesting. It added to my knowledge on a different type of algae that turned this beach red. This article was informational and talked about an algae called noctiluca scintillans.

I read the article about Crimson Waters have caused beaches in Sydney to close. This article was by Meera Dolasia, once again like all the other articles. It is about the water at these Sydney beaches turning red!
This unusual scene happens around California sometimes but not in Sydney. This crimson red water is from an abundance of algae called noctiluca scintillans. This new red water won’t last long but for a while people will be seeing some red water in the normally clear water. Somebody in the area actually started a rumer that a bunch of tomato juice was spilt in the water!
The first beach this happened to has already reopened and his no longer red, and his busy like it would normally be. Surfers have found that the red color goes away at night, but that’s in California. If the red water is very red it can kill marine animals living in the area of red water.
So I thought that the article was pretty good, but a little creepy if you lived there. This articles pictures of the red watered beaches were really cool and are pretty interesting. If you have time you should check it out!

Snow Hotel
The article that I am summarizing is the, 23rd makeover of Sweden’s Ice Hotel. The author is Meera Dolasia. The main idea of this article is that the hotel has been around for 23 years and remade every year entirely from ice.
The hotel is located in Sweden and has been around 23 years, and became started by accident. A local tourist company was trying to attract people and had an art exhibition in a special built igloo on the frozen Torne River. It attracted many day visitors but a group of brae people decided to try spending the night there. That is how it got started.
Each year the design becomes more intricate, and has 47 bedrooms, which artists from around the around the world race to compete to carve, it also has a reception lobby or ice bar. It can even host weddings. All the rooms are the same temperature, 23 degrees Fahrenheit, and guests are advised to keep gloves and hats on at all times. Thermal sleeping bags are kept in the bedrooms.
Like any other hotel, it hosts activities for guests, including, snowshoeing, Moose safaris, dog sledding, snowmobile safaris, and overnight wilderness camps. Meals are limited to the hotel, but they still provide gourmet meals, and the drinks are always perfectly chilled. This is a healthy building for the environment, because when the temperatures heat up, it melts and nothing is left behind.
I chose this article because it is so interesting that it is made of entirely ice. I learned that almost anything is possible. This will help me in the future, so that if they are still remaking this, I can show my children.

I read the article called NASA Observatory Captures Spectacular Sun Eruptions. It was written by Meera Dolasia. IT is about large glowing clouds that explode from the sun’s surface.
On November 16th NASA SDO captured on tape 2 back to back sun eruptions. The eruptions are also called solar prominences. They are huge arcs of gas that erupt from the surface of the sun.
The explosions begin usually above a sunspot. These spots become unstable and explode. They release intense amounts of energy, as much as 10 billion hydrogen bombs.
That article was really informative. It would be bad if one of the explosions hit the earth.

Red Water
People visiting Sydney's well-known Bondi Beach on November 26th had a bit of astonishment. When they showed up the water was not the blue it usually is, it was a totally different color . . . RED! The water did not turn red because there was blood in the water it turned red, but because of algae. It happened when these microscopic organisms became concentrated in the small section of the ocean. Some believe that this latest increase in population caused that the tide to bring in nutrient-rich waters to the coastline.
The red color doesn’t last long. It was closed by the authorities on Tuesday, but is already open to visitors. It is NOT red anymore which is a good. Even though the red color is gone some people are still scared to go into the water. The red might have been scary, but it only caused minor irritation to the skin and eyes.
It may be red during the day, but at night it is not red. It is a different color again. And it is not only a color, but it also GLOWS, also called bioluminescent! It is rather beautiful at night. The surfers that go 2 the beach luv it. It gives them a great excuse to surf at night.

Ice……..Hotel ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? :O
I am summarizing an article about an ice hotel created Sweden. This article was published by Meera Dolasia on November 30, 2012. (This hotel was created in a tiny village of Jukkasjarvi, Sweden.) (The hotel is made out of ice blocks lugged in from the nearby Torne River.) (What’s even more stunning is that the hotel gets more awesome each year.
This year is the 23rd year of building this hotel. (The idea of the hotel came from a local tourist company trying to attract visitors during the severe winter months.) Each year the hotel keeps getting better and better. Artists from all over the world carved and formed the 47 bedroom suites, lobby, and ice bar. (The hotel even has a church for couples looking for an offbeat wedding location.)
This article is very interesting. I have heard of this hotel, but there were a lot of things I didn’t know about it that were in this article. I don’t know if I would stay in this hotel because it’s freezing! This shows that people can create things no one has ever thought of before. This article is very educational.

Lava From Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Spills Into The Ocean
Hawaii’s Big Islands home to some of the world’s most active volcanoes. However none are as dynamic or spectacular as the Kilauea which has been erupting almost nonstop since 1983. However 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 the edge toward the ocean in October 29th it was not until November 25th that it made its first entry into the water. “Not surprisingly, the amazing phenomenon is attracting thousands of visitors to the area. While not dangerous, authorities are warning tourists to watch the spectacle from a safe distance”.
That's because while lava entering the water may look quite benign, it could be dangerous - not just because of the gas emitted, but also, because the crashing waves intersecting with the hot lava could spew out scalding water and even, tiny particles of volcanic glass. Given the amazing spews Kilauea has had for decades, it is almost impossible to believe that it was once not even classified as a stand-alone volcano, but instead, thought to be an offshoot of its bigger neighbor. Fortunately, further research revealed that it is indeed a full-fledged volcano - one with its own magma-plumbing system that extends more than 60km below the earth's surface.
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. Believed to be born in Tahiti, she was one of six girls and seven boys born to the earth goddess. According to the legend, Pele was exiled by her father, the creator of the Universe, and shipped off to Hawaii. Once here, she created havoc in all the islands, digging fire pits and creating volcanoes. Her sister finally caught up with her and killed her in an epic battle near Hana, on the Hawaiian Island of Maui

I chose to read the article, “23rd Makeover of Sweeden’s Ice Hotel Is Fabulous and Freezing!” which is about a hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweeden made entirely out of ice. The hotel is remade every year because it melts in the summer.
This hotel was thought of on accident because an art show was being made in an igloo. Since then it has gotten more amazing each year. The hotel offers something for everyone. The entire hotel is always only about 23 degrees F. It has lots of activities like snowshoeing and dog sledding.
This is known by some as the ultimate green building, because it melts away when the weather gets hotter. There are other hotels like this one, but none are as big and detailed as this one.
I chose this article because I had heard of the hotel before and wanted to see it. I learned that its in a small town in sweeden. This knowledge probably wont help me with anything in the future.

23rd Makeover of Sweden’s Ice Hotel
I read the article, “23rd Makeover of Sweden’s Ice Hotel Is Fabulous and Freezing!” By Meera Dolasia. It is about the famous ice hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden. It is receiving it’s 23rd makeover. It gets one every year.
The whole building is carved entirely from ice carried in from nearby Torne River. The hotel gets more and more extravagant each and every year! The idea for the ice hotel was not purposeful, though. A local tourist company was trying to attract tourists during the severe winter months. It was a huge success in attracting day visitors, but it wasn’t until a few brave people came into the hotel with reindeer hides and sleeping bags and spent the night in the igloo. It sparked an idea in the villagers.
It has 47 bedroom suites, a reception lobby, and ice bar, and even has a church for couples looking for a different wedding place to get married. It can accommodate any visitor and can offer something for every budget. No matter what room or suite you are in, the temperature is the same -5 degrees Celsius (23 degrees Fahrenhait). Many guests only just spend one night at the ice hotel because of the cold temps.
When summer comes, the hotel melts into a giant puddle, leaving no trace of its existence. Most guests genuinely enjoy the experience of staying at the ice hotel, there are gourmet meals and the drinks are always chilled to perfection! I enjoyed reading this article.

My story is about the ice hotel by Meera Dolasia. In the article it explain how most hotels are lucky if they go through one or two renovations during their lifetime, but 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!
In order to accommodate every kind of visitor, the hotel offers something for every budget - Ranging from a luxurious Art Deco Suite, which boasts of beautiful ice sculptures to the bare bones Snow Room, which contains just an icy bed and a reindeer skin. i Would not have liked it very much, but that would have been awesome.

The 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. Some like dandelions use wind, others by growing prickly fruits that stick to the fur or spine of animals. Then there are those that yeid sweet fruit that animals seek out and devour. However, in order for that to work successfully, those plants have to get it really right.

a red tide occured on the coast of australia today surprising many surfers and residents. this weird thing is caused by an overabundance of a certain type of alge not as many people thought a brutal shark attack or a major oil spill. this red tide is known to happen around the coast of california not the coast of australia. this strange thing had many peole worried and mystified. experts belive that this was caused by a recent increase in fresh water coming into the bay of the beach. all in all this is a very weird occurance and doesn't happen very often.

Crimson Waters Cause Several Sydney Beaches To Close

What would you say if when you arrived at the beach ready to swim and have fun you discovered the water had turned blood red? Probably pretty shocked right? Well that’s how these people is Sydney felt. “The normally crystal clear blue ocean waters had turned a crimson red!” The cause of the red water is something you might now expect. An overabundance of algae known as sea sparkle.
This is known as red tides. It happens when these organisms become concentrated in the ocean. Its known to happen mainly around the oceans in California. Now the good news is that it will not last for long. Many of the beaches closed have now reopened to visitors. Although there is no telling if the normal amount of visitors are going to show up. Considering many are concerned about weither or not the algae is harmful or not. But the only thing so far that has been reported harmful is causing a slight irritation the eyes and skin.
However, there is a down side to the story. “As the algae start to die and sink in the shallow waters of the coastline, they decompose and cause areas of low oxygen. If the depletion is severe, as seems to the case here, it does kill marine animals that reside in these zones.” However there is an upside to the story. During the day the oceans are blood red. But at night the dark red seas turned to a brilliant blue. The reason would be because a chemical in the organisms cause them to glow!
Now in my opinion this is very cool. I would love to witness this magnificent event. I think you would be very fortunate to see the seas. Yes I’ll admit at first I would be a little scared but at night I would love the seas the amazing glowing seas!

This hotel in Jukkasjarvi, Sweden gets a makeover every year because it is made out of ice. It is carved entirely from ice blocks lugged in from the nearby Torne River. What’s even more stunning is that the hotel gets more fabulous each year.
Artists from around the world come to carve one of the 47 rooms, reception lobby or ice bar. The hotel even houses a church for couples looking for an offbeat wedding location!! There are rooms that are called art deco suite which has beautiful ice sculptures to the bare bones snow room which has just an icy bed and a reindeer skin, but no matter what room you are in it is a chilling -5C!!!!! That’s why guests are advised to keep their gloves, hats, coats etc. on.
The guests can choose what they want to do for example snowshoeing, moose safaris, dog sledding, snowmobiles, and overnight wilderness camps. The employees are always able to make a wonderful meal. And for the drinks, well they are always chilled to perfection. Then when summer comes the hotel melts sadly.

I am doing the article called 23rd Makeover of Swedens Ice Hotel is Fabulous and Freezing!!! This article is about how tis hotel in Sweden is made out of ice. Every year the hotel is carved out of ice. Which means it has to get remodeled every year. This year is the 23rd year they have remodeled. This year, something unexpected happened. Tourists came and was giving a tour of the Torne River that has an igloo. Which is where they get all of the ice for the hotel from. While giving the tour, some people started coming in with sleeping bags to sleep inside the igloo. The Ice Hotel found this out they were like, there is no point when there is a hotel right here. The Ice Hotel comes with 47 bedrooms, an ice bar, and even has a church for weddings. Every single room has the same temperature, which is 23 degrees F. Most of the visitors have thermal sleeping bags, hats, and gloves. Most people just stay there one night because it is so cold. Then the next night they move to more warmer cabins nearby. What is weird about this is every summer, the ice melts and turns into one giant puddle. Then they rebuild it. Even though its cold guests say it an experience of a lifetime.

New York residents were treated to an unusual but very awesome sight, which started Tuesday November 26th and lasted till Thursday November 28th. This sight was a 35-mile rainbow that lit up the nights' cloudy skies, all the way from Manhattan to the hurricane damaged Brooklyn. This rainbow lazer wasn't just a weird act of nature, but a very powerful work of art made by german artist Yvette Mattern.
The speciality of the rainbow lazer was to help provide and bring a sence of peace and security to many New Yorkers. The laser is known as 'Global Rainbow After The Storm'. Another reasoning for this lazer is to relay a message of unity regardless of class, religion, culture, or race.
This lazer wasn't created just for New York City, though. It has been displayed previously all across Europe and even at the London Olympics, as a great symbol of hope and restoration for the residents that are still recovering from the devistation and trying to rebuild their lives the best they can!
I really enjoyed this article. It was very interesting. I think you might enjoy it also.
