Article 22: Think Twice Before Jumping Into the Pool
You might think that going to the pool or the beach with some friends or your family might be fun and chillaxing. Well...I hate to break it down to you people but it won't be fun after reading this. In most situations, there are good and bad sides. In this case, the good side is that (like I said earlier) hanging out in the water might seem fun. But it is kind of not safe for the most parts.

The life cycle of a banana is a vivid one. It is the change of color that makes the banana's life cycle interesting. It starts off with the green color (meaning that is not really ready to eat yet.) Then when IT IS ready to eat it turns into yellow. (Now we can eat our banana.) When the banana waits too long to be eaten, it turns brown and mushy. Therefore it has to be thrown away...

Article 16: Book vs Internet Articles
When students are asked to write a paper, they are required to gather information about their topic. To gather information, the students either use Internet or books. The Internet is very easy to access, and it is easy for the information to get into your mind when studying. However, the problem with the Internet is that some pieces of information might not be accurate or that it might be completely wrong. On the other hand, the information found in books has a much higher chance that the information found on the internet. The author of the book probably took years and years writing that book, but yet, the writer of the Internet might have taken only a few minutes writing an article. So, therefore reading a book is more precise of the timing it took the author of writing it and the process is probably more careful in a way.

Article 13: Why Social Media is Not Smart For Middle School Kids
There are always the pros and cons of life to everything. In this case, I read about the 5 reasons why social media is not smart for middle school kids. First, kids start their social media experience lying about their age. Starting in middle school would probably change how the kids act in a way. They would probably be wanting to act cool arranging their "new" selves. Second, kids' brains are highly defenseless to applications made to be addictive. Third, on social media kids see a mocking perspective of reality. One of the common questions, when kids enter middle school, is "Who am I ?" For guys wearing hair gel and new deodorant scents suddenly become momentous. All the while, social media emphasizes a child's tendency to focus merely on themselves. Middle school is a time when kids feel as if the whole world.is.looking at the (and judging them). Social media can amplify the worst of it. That can lead to depression, severe bullying, and to the worst case scenario-suicides. Lastly, social media pushes kids into the perilous attitude to pursue affirmation. It's like trying to dress them (the middle schoolers) in clothes that are too big. You have to wait and let them grow up.
Article 12: Human Hair
When you think of your hair, you might be considering the ones on your head. But as you grow up, you will learn that there is hair all over the human body, except your lips, the palms of your hands, and the soles of your feet. Some of the hair on your body can be easily seen, like the ones on your eyebrows, hair on your head, arms, and legs. But some can be almost invisible like the ones on your cheeks. Under the control of where your hair is being placed, it has different functions. Like, the has hair on your head keeps your head warm and maintain a little cushioning on your skull. Also, your eyelashes protect your eyes by lessening the number of light and dust that go into them, and eyebrows insulate your sweat from dripping from your forehead.
Article 11: Puppy Socialization
When you bring a puppy home, it knows nothing about anything. Except for the things you show it. Puppies are not born to interpret what the world is. Like, what traffic is, what objects such as worms and leaves are, or how to confront people, car, other pets, or noises. These are the things that you need to expose your puppy to.
Article 10: Zero: odd or even?
Many people are often curious if the number zero is an integer because it symbolizes nothing. A whole number is a number that has no remainder after dividing two numbers: the dividend and a divisor. Therefore, zero is a whole number. An odd number is a number when dividing by two it has a remainder. But, even numbers are the opposite: even numbers are when divided by the number two, the quotient has no remainder. Zero divided by two is just zero and has no remainder, so it is, therefore, an even number.
Article 9: Sleep deprivation
Sleep deprivation happens when a person gets less sleep than they need to feel awake and attentive. People differ in how little sleep is needed to be thought as sleep deprived. Some people such as older adults seem to be more defiant to the effects of sleep deprivation, exclusively children and young adults are so.much more defenseless.
Article 8: Placebo vs. Nocebo
The Placebo effect is very prevalent and is essentially a procedure (or medicine) which works because one is told that it will work. The patient, therefore, believes it will work. They are in no way affected by the medicine so it is a psychological effect. The Nacebo effect is quite different from the Placebo effect. It is the opposite. It worsens a patient's condition just because they believed it would. Like the Placebo effect, they were not affected by the medicine. But unlike the Placebo effect, the Nacebo effect left them with negative results. The word "Nacebo" actually comes from a Latin word meaning "I will harm." The word Placebo comes from a Latin word meaning "I will please."
Article 7: Northern Lights
It is truly amazing what our sun can do even if it is millions of miles away from us. One example of just what the sun can accomplish is the Northern Lights. Huge storms happen in the sun. These storms cause the solar particle to travel through space at high rates. Sometimes, Earth is in its path. Because of this, our atmosphere and magnetic field respond to the change. After entering the atmosphere, the particles excite (change from high-energy orbit to low-energy orbits). This causes them to flare and emit light which is what we see as the Northern Lights.
Article 6: Happiness
When asked what makes one happy, one might say car, money, less body fat, etc. These aspects all have one thing in common-they are external things. Well, you might be surprised to know consumerist things don't necessarily impact happiness. As the saying goes "Money doesn't buy happiness ". What is happiness? Happiness is
a chemical reaction in which endorphins, dopamine, serotonin, and oxytocin are released. baked Based on studies, a conclusion has been drawn. -Not possible to be happy alone -Can't happy all the time -Can't happier than you are currently Source: https://psychcentral.com/lib/what-makes-us-happy/
Article 5: Body Sensor Discovered by Scientists
Scientists have evolved a new body sensor that has the effectiveness to monitor the body temperature and muscle tone. This sensor is very thin. Therefore, you won't be able to feel the device on yourself. The normal body sensor annoys the skin and causes the redness to appear and can cause your skin to be itchy. This device supports your skin to have air between the device itself and your skin, restrains from getting the itchiness. This new body sensor is so much more trustful than the current one!
Article 4: Future Transportations Technologies that Might Be Invented in About Few Years

Autonomous cars will embody autonomous technology. The beliefs in the world could believe that we could alter our current transportations to our future ones. With these incredible changes, our world would be unrecognizable.
Article 3: How Students At School Opinionize That going to School Can Be Boring
School is a place to learn and most students believe that going to school can be a total waste of their time. Students at school just learn their subjects and not teach it. To master this, they'd have to understand/or go through the learning concept. Also, to have a career you would need to know all the basics first: this is your progress and becoming a better and successful person. The way that schools teach might not get the students' attention. If this process keeps on flowing then not only would learning be more exciting for them but, students would have a better comprehension of their academics.
Article 2: Freckles
Freckles are flat, light brown circular spots that are the size of the top of a nail. The spots may establish sun bared skin after continuous disclosure to sunlight. The common people who would most likely get freckles are red-haired people and the people who have the fair complexion. They may show up when you are 1 or 2 years old.
Article 1: Pimples
Before you get a pimple, you can see minuscule holes in your skin. These are called pores. These pores may be caused by oil, dead skin cells, or bacteria. The oil can make your hair gleaming and it prevents your skin from getting moistureless. Then, puberty comes along. It's when your body grows up and changes. So when you get your puberty your akin starts producing so much oil. The oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria clog up the pores. This occurs the pimples to go in your skin.
