Tasmanian Devils

Tasmanian Devils are small marsupials with rat like features These features are their sharp teeth and their coarse black or brown fur. The Tasmanian Devil has a fighting style that is quite intimidating.

This creature is 20 to 31 inches tall and weighs 9 to 26 pounds. The Tasmanian Devil is found on the island of Tasmania in Australia, which has an area of 35,042 square miles ( 90,759 square kilometers ). Tasmanian devil

Though the Tasmanian Devils can live anywhere on the island they prefer to live in the coastal scrublands and forests according to National Geographic. But no matter what area of the island they inhabit, these animals sleep under rocks or in caves, logs or burrows.

The only thing the cartoon Tasmanian Devil and the real one have in co is their poor temperament. When the Tasmanian Devil feels threatened, it goes into a rage in taz_01which it growls, lunges, and bares its teeth.

It also makes otherworldly screams that can seem very devil like. It may be due to this temper that the Tasmanian Devil is a solitary creature.Tasmanian-devil

Amelia Earhart: The first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean

amelia_earhart_quote-550125

 

On May 20, 1932, Amelia Earhart took off from Newfoundland; she landed in Ireland nearly 15 hours later, becoming the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean.

Amelia Mary Earhart was born July 24,1897 at her  grandparents house in Atchison, Kansas.

When she was three years old her she got a new baby sister which they named Grace Muriel Earhart.

 

For most of their childhood the sisters remained with their grandparentsamelia-earhart-do-it-quote in Atchison while their parents moved into a new, smaller quarters in Des Moines, Iowa.

In 1909 the Earhart family finally reunited in Des Moines, where Amelia and Muriel were enrolled in a public school for the first time with Amelia entering seventh grade at the age of twelve years.

 

Amelia was twelve years old before she ever saw an airplane, the first time she flew was 1920.

Amelia was so thrilled by her first airplane ride that she quickly began taking flying lessons.

She wrote,”As soon as I left the ground, I knew that I myself had to fly”

Amelia bought her first airplane within six months of her first lesson.

When Amelia was a teenager she changed from one high school to another. In all she went to six different high schools in four years, Amelia-Earhart-jpgbut despite that she actually was  able to graduate on time.

She attended college at Columbia University.

Amelia Earhart was courageous for taking on such a big flight across the Atlantic Ocean

Amelia disappeared  while she was trying to fly around the world in 1937, her plane was never located

malala review

My review of the book “I am Malala”

malala book

I’m going to tell you about a biography called “I am Malala”

First  of all I will tell you about Malala. She is a confident young woman who believes that everyone is equal.  After reading just eight chapters you can

realize just how lucky we are to live in such a great state with such great people.

 

She has had a hard life.

For instance, when she was only ten she heard on the radio that girls should not be able to go to school. They also said that music was a crime.

All she wanted was an education
All she wanted was an education

Raised in once-peaceful area of Pakistan transformed by terrorism, Malala was taught to stand up for what she believes in. So she fought for her right to be educated.

On October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life. She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school.

“One child, One teacher, One book, and One pen can change the world.”

Malala was shot in the head while coming home from school.

Now my review on the book:

I personally think that the book is very interesting. At the first part of the book Malala was talking about her family.  What I thought was funny was when Malala was talking about how her and her brother Khushal used to always fight over everything! Who got the best grades, over the t.v remote, over anything, you name it.

One of the best parts is when Malala talks about when they would always play cricket ball. In case you don’t know what cricket ball

The game of Cricket is similar to baseball.
The game of Cricket is similar to baseball.

is, her definition is a ball game played between two teams of 11 players each on a field at the center of which is a rectangular 22-yard long pitch.

Cricket is just like the game of bashttp://www.mialoves.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=92&action=editeball that we play here.

 

 

Facts about Malala

  • Eerily, the day that Malala got shot was also the day that her mother started learning to  read and write
  • Malala wrote a blog for the BBC when she was 11 and 12 years old under a false name, explaining what life was like under Taliban control
  • She’s got an honorary doctorate degree from the University of King’s College
  • She’s met David Beckham, the Queen, and President Obama
  • Time magazine featured her as one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2013

My review of Dork Diaries #10

Dork Diaries #10

Tales from a NOT-SO Perfect Pet Sitter

dork diaries 10

I Love this book!

The main character is awesome and she sticks up for herself and every one she cares about not only herself but everybody else in her life

even her bratty sister Brianna.

But she will never stick up for the mean girl Mackenzie.

Now Mackenzie goes to a different school, which now that Mackenzie is out of Nikki’s life she feels like the universe did her a favor.

But later in the book Mackenzie is back and Nikki writes “Another big Mac attack”which is so funny.

The pic on the right is about the puppies that were found on the steps on the outside of Fuzzy Friends, dork diaries 10which is a no kill animal shelter that takes in homeless animals in dork diaries,  and two of the main characters Brandon and Nikki work there.

Now to talk about the main character Nikki.

Nikki is sweet,nice, smart, and she has her own column in the newspaper called “Miss know it all”.

Nikki takes letters for “Miss know it all” and writes responses if you have not read book #9 then don’t read this part. Spoiler alert!

In book #9 Mackenzie stole Nikki’s diary  and logged in as Nikki and wrote all these mean letters to people.

Overall I think this book is awesome and I would recommend this series for young brilliant girls to read and also if you love drama this is the book for you.dork diaries 10

First Day with Gus!!!

 

We hung out on the couch and watched some tv, Gus was really mellow.

Gus gives great hugs!

I also have a large, curious German Shepard/Husky named Micco.

He was really really really interested in Gus the whole time he was at my house.

I think he was worried that he might escape or something.

 

Gus also had a couple of small potty accidents on the couch, but it was really easy to clean up.

They looked like little dry  raisins!

Here’s what I learned about the  Indian Peafowl

The Indian  peafowl or  blue peafowl is a large and  brightly colored  bird is a species of peafowl native.

In South Asia but introduced in many other parts of the world like the United Sates and Mexico and many more.

 

 

Its body length is 100-150cm.

Its lifespan is 15 years the wild, in captivity it is 23 years and the scientific name is Pavo Cristatus.

The male has the more color amount and the female  one  has the least amount of color.

 

 

 

White peacocks are not albinos, but are a colour form of the peacock.

These  beautiful creatures are a rare species of the peacock.

White peacocks are not albinos; they have a genetic mutation that is known as Leucism, which causes the lack of pigments in the plumage.

I think that the White peafowl is one of the most majestic creatures alive.
