    1.In early September, there were people in the course of the hot lava that has been spewing from the Kilauea volcano since June. a.The two rural communities are Ka'ohe Homestead and Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island. 2. The Hawaiian County Civil Defense has rebuilt two gravel roads that can be used as optional escape routes if necessary. 3.They are planning to rebuild there lives when the lava flow subsides because that is where they lived all there lives. Critical Thinking Question: The differences between volcanic explosions and earthquake are that a volcanic explosion is when a volcano "throws up" lava. But a earthquake is when the tectonic plates split apart and rumble and shake the ground. Another difference is that volcano occurs less often than a earthquake. In some ways they are the same. For an example, they are the same because they are both natural disasters and they both can kill people.

Benjamin Radford was able to prove Chupacabra didn't exist after some painstaking investigation that involved DNA testing on the carcass of the alleged monster that had been found in Texas, Radford was able to definitely conclude that no such animal existed and that the goats were being slaughtered by either dogs or coyotes.

    1. The Stanford researchers were trying to find the answer to how long is an average kid's memory. a. It was important to know because some teachers would like to know things like that. 2. They got a group of 28 kids from ages 7-9 and had them take a " math test.". Then a year after that they took the same kids a did the same test. This time, the kids were better at memorizing the facts because their memory was long term. So they did the same thing to the the same kids when they were adults, and they were even better because their memory got longer as they got older. 3. The kids got a longer memory as they got older. a. Dr. Menon plans on investigating even farther. Critical Thinking Question: Learning the basics of any subject is really important because then you can do better in life because you know your facts.
