Today we did a fun experiment with apples. We explored the real life of apples. We took some nails, Popsicle sticks, paper clips, etc; to poke at the apple. We also opened http://todaysmeet.com/applecore to chat with each other to show what we saw. We found out that stuff like apple sauce can come straight out of a apple. I noticed some things I will never ever notice again.
First I'll rate this book 4★`s out of 5★`s. This book had some suspenseful parts in it that made me wonder and think a lot. The really good parts I will list here :: In the book they had made some on and off parts in thios book, like when Winston Churhill ( parrot on the left ) said what was needed perfectly, but he did it during the time that Mark was blo-wing out a puddle with a Swedish hair-dryer ( according to the book, the Swedish hair-dryer can ruin electricity, like a radio, traffic lights, and even a studio, and thats how 'Kidsview' got off-air). This book had more good parts like when Benjy stood up to Brad Jaworski to say that Brad`s Fuzzy and Puffy stories are the most horrible stories, EVER, but it turns out that Brad made the stories bad on purprose, so he could get off the list for `Kidsview`.
There aren't any bad parts in the book, except for the fact that there aren't any bad parts in the book. ( There are no bad parts in the book because there aren't any bad parts. What！？）
Today, what we did was a fun activity. We made motivational posters on 21st century skills. It took a lot a work at first, but when you got the hang of it, it got really easy.
We studied on Tuesday for 21st century skills, so all we had to do was pick a skill and say it out loud and Mr. Solarz would highlight it down. Since helping each other is a 21st century skill, we helped eachother a lot.
We made a sheet to prove how awesome solar energy is. We wrought about how it is such a good energy source. We were trying to persuade people to chose solar energy. We are going to try to get everybody to get positive thoughts about solar for are energy debate.
I think that leaves die because they need to survive through the winter and not freeze, or get a "frostbite". Another reason they might release there selves from there branches so they can stop them selves from being the victim of hurting the tree.
The reason that in the spring and summer, the leaves are green and clean (Heh, Heh,Heh) because sun is acting as the leaves' food, so in the fall, the leaves don't get the food they need, so they lose some pigments (wich is kinda like protection or the boss for the business for color), wich changes the color ofthe leaves.
When winter comes, the leaves have to eat there waste ( poo and pee for the human) and causes them to weaken up, causing them to fall.
There are lots of ways that leaves change there color, and why they fall.
I hope you learned something (at least from my rediculously long and awful speech)!!!! :)
since it’s Election Day, let’s apply his question to the current contest. Whatwill happen if there's a tie?
I don't mean an electoral college tie. There’s probably about a 1 in 500 chance of one of those this year, and the consequences are thoroughly explored. I mean both candidates getting the same number of votes in a swing state. How unlikely is it?
Several researchers—including Silver himself—have calculated the odds of a state winner being decided by a single vote, which is effectively the same as the probability of a tie vote. For typical close states, the linked article calculates the probabilities to be in the neighborhood of 1 in 100,000—which makes intuitive sense, since 100,000 is the sort of vote margin by which swing state elections are typically decided.
But what if the tie happens anyway?
For that matter, what if there’s a tie in every close battleground state?
Well, for starters, recounts happen. But since recounts happen in close elections in general, these are just as likely to create ties as to break them. They don’t change the underlying probability. So let’s assume that after all recounts, there’s a tie. What then?
The short answer is that it’s up to the state’s laws.
I went through the general laws of nine competitive states to see how they handle popular vote ties. In most of them, the tie is broken by “drawing lots”—that is, randomly. (If you’re curious, here are links to some tie vote laws in each state: Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio, New Hampshire, Wisconsin,Colorado, Iowa, Nevada).
“Drawing lots” can mean a coin toss, drawing straws, or picking a name from a hat. Most states leave the details up to the Secretary of State or an electoral board, although Iowa Code 50.44 specifies that the names be written on pieces of paper and placed in a “receptacle”. In North Carolina, however, a tie vote (when more than 5,000 votes are cast) results in a new election. (Which could potentially itself result in a tie ...)
But let’s imagine that there’s not just one state that’s tied—instead, thenine most competitive states are tied (and the rest go as expected). If North Carolina held a runoff to break the tie, and the other eight states flipped coins (or picked from Iowa’s receptacle), Obama would be reelected in 431 out of 512 cases—about 84% of the time.
What do you think? Any chance it happens this year? Should these rules be changed? What should we change them to? Tell us in the comments section below...
SO Who Won The Presidential Elections For 2012?
Up top are some red and blue states. The red states are Republican, and the blue states are Democratic. Even without Florida President Obama would've won. Only with ohio and California, President Obama got a boost to win, So Governer Romney had to kind of give up.
What's up guys! I'm Ian. Hey thanks for clicking on "Blog 20"! I love karate(I am a black belt!), and baseball, too. I also love to play video games!!! Enjoy all of my posts! (^-^)
