How The Removal Of A 'Nuisance' Predator Wreaked Havoc On Yellowstone National Park's Ecosystem

In the 1800's the Rocky Mountain West area of the USA that now includes Yellowstone National Park, was teeming with gray wolves. However they were considered nuisance predators who killed livestock and therefore, actively hunted down. By the time the National Park was established in 1827, the number of gray wolves had diminished substantially, a trend that continued thanks to a government predator control program that ensured that by 1926, there were none left.

Massive Dreadnoughtus And Alien-Like Spinosaurus The Latest Dinosaurs To Create Waves

Though dinosaur finds are revealed on a fairly regular basis, very few result in as much excitement as the latest two. On Thursday, September 4th, a team of scientists led by Kenneth Lacovara, an associate professor at Philadelphia's Drexel University unveiled the Dreadnoughtus schrani, which they believe is the biggest known land animal to have ever inhabited Earth. While dinosaur fans were still digesting the facts, on September 11th, came news of the re-discovery of the Spinosaurus aegyptiacus, the only known semi-aquatic dinosaur.

Newsflash: Girls Can Play Baseball Too!

While Jackie Robinson's achievements as the first African American major league baseball player are well documented, very few people know about Ila Borders - the first female pitcher in integrated men's professional baseball and the first woman to win a men's professional game in the independent leagues. Nor do they know about the 17 girls that have played in the 68-year history of the Little League World Series. But thanks to 13-year-old pitching phenom Mo'ne Davis, that has all changed.

Florida Fisherman Accidentally Snares Terrifying Goblin Shark

A fisherman trawling for shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico, south of Key West, Florida, got the surprise of his life when he pulled up the nets on April 19th - Intermingled with the tiny shrimp was a giant shark, the kind that one would only expect to encounter in a horror movie! What was even scarier, was that the shark was alive and menacingly trashing around the deck, trying its best to escape.

Scientists Reveal A Failproof Strategy To Win Rock-Paper-Scissors

If you have ever had to decide on an outcome with a friend, chances are you have done it by playing rock-paper-scissors, the fun hand game where players simultaneously form one of the three shapes with an outstretched hand. Like most people, you probably thought that the game is designed for a random outcome, one in which neither player has an advantage. Turns out you were wrong. According to scientists from China's Zhejiang University, there is a method to this madness - one that can be easily mastered so that you never lose a rock-paper-scissors duel again.

          Experts Believe There Is No Relation Between Recent String Of Earthquakes Along 'Ring Of Fire'

          Over the last few weeks, earthquake activity seems to have increased dramatically. First there was the 5.2 magnitude shaker in Los Angeles on March 21st. Then came the more intense, 8.2 magnitude quake near Chile on April 1st, followed by one that measured 5.8 in magnitude the day after, in Panama. While they may all appear to be isolated incidents, the shakers do have one thing in common - They all occurred in locations along the dreaded 'Ring of Fire', the world's most active earthquake and volcano belt.

          The Virtually Indestructible Water Bear

          Want to be a superhero? Then you may want to pick up some skills from the segmented microscopic Tardigrades (slow steppers). Popularly known as water bears or moss piglets because of their slow gait, these tiny creatures can survive anything - From boiling to sub-zero temperatures, radiation, and even the vacuum of outer space. It is no wonder that this virtually indestructible animal has had the scientific community buzzing with excitement, for years.

          France's Iconic Eiffel Tower Celebrates 125 Years

          When Gustave Eiffel designed the Eiffel Tower for the 1889 Exposition Universelle held to celebrate the 100th year anniversary of the French Revolution, he had never envisioned it to last more than 20 years. But the tower, which turned 125 on Monday, March 31st, has not only outlived all expectations, but also, become the most enduring symbol of France, one that is visited by almost 7 million visitors a year.

          Is The Five-Second Rule Valid? Depends On Who You Ask!

          The five-second rule has been around for many years. According to age-old adage it is okay to pick up food that has touched the ground, as long as it is done within that time frame. But is it really? Depends on which scientific study you want to believe.

          Surprise! Giant Pandas Love Sweets Too!

          Though giant pandas may appear perfectly happy chewing bamboo, scientists recently discovered that just like the rest of us, they would rather have something a tad sweeter. This 'surprising' fact was disclosed to the world on March 26th, in the online scientific journal PLOS One by Danielle R. Reed, a behavioral geneticist at Philadelphia's Monell Chemical Senses Center.

            The Eiffel Tower was build to stay up for twenty years but instead it is still up today. And Gustavo convinced them not to tear down by saying it could be used for scientific things like radio signals.

              The hypothesis was if herbivores had a sweet tooth for sweet food. They picked pandas because they eat bamboo and leaves and they wanted to know if pandas had a sweet tooth. In the passage it says that panda like Apple and watermelons because they are juicy and sweet. No because just give them fruits you would know.

                They picked pandas for their studying because the pandas have a taste for sweet things and because they saw that pandas liked sweet foods and they're herbivores. The hypothesis that they were figuring out was herbivores liked sweet things as well as humans. In the article it says that pandas like apples and watermelons because the juice is sweet and surgery. I don't think the scientific study was necessary because people know that pandas like sweet stuff and any other sweet food.

                  The two studies were to find out if the ' five second rule' should be followed. The tests were similar because they both tested foods on floors and surfaces. They were different because they got different results and one of the tests tested more foods. The scientists concluded that it depended on what surface the food falls on to know whether to eat it or not. I am more likely to believe the food should be tossed because there are lots of bacteria and the surfaces are dirty.

And Gustave convinced them not to tear the tower down by saying it could be used for scientific things like radio signals. It grows because it is made of wrought iron so when it's heated it " grows". When I first saw the Eiffel Tower I was amazed! It was so beautiful, I couldn't believe my eyes. I took so many photos that my memory got full ! And to think they want to tear it down! It is marvelous! I just LOVE it!

                      It was built because there was a French Revolution. Gustavo covince them because he was a brilliant scientist. It grows because there was wrong iron and it was over heated. I would be amazed seeing the Eiffel Tower it will be cool I would take a million pictures of it I've never been to Paris and I would like to go and see the Eiffel Tower it would be really cool.

                              The hypothesis that they were trying to find out was if herbivores had a sweet tooth. They picked pandas because they are herbivores and eat lots of plants. The pandas liked apples and watermelons because they contained sweeter liquids, which the pandas like. I don't think the scientific study was necessary because the scientists know that in zoos they give sweet fruits and treats to the pandas.

                                  I think it was necessary to study the pandas. Because then you know what kinda sweets a panda likes. And to test some foods to see what they like and what they don't like

Also that big ice cream was big. I also wonder if that took them hard work to do that big ice cream cone????

                                                                                      For most of us Veterans Day just means a chance to enjoy an extra day off from school or work. However this November 11th, be sure to spend a few minutes on its true purpose, by acknowledging the men and women who have served in our armed forces. These include the members of the US Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and the Coast Guard.

                                                                                      Video Of The Week - Guatemala's Giant Kite Festival

                                                                                      Day of the Dead, a holiday celebrated annually on November 1st & 2nd to honor deceased family and friends is enjoyed across Latin America. However the festivities differ in each country. Mexico commemorates the day by offering the departed with their favorite foods, Haiti by playing loud music and drums and Guatemala by flying giant hand-made kites over cemeteries.

Even if you don't like to celebrate veteran's day at least thank god that your country has won another war. I always celebrate veteran's day because my uncle is a veteran.

Also they work hard to get new stuff for them to. So are responsibility is to thank them for what they have done for us thank you veterans.
