Stars

Standard

Messier 65

Stars, one of the most important parts of space. Stars have attracted me for a long time, at day just one can be seen, The Sun but at night millions upon billions light up the sky. I really like space,and I am going to do a post on just that today. I am focusing my attention on stars, in my opinion the most important part of space, why? Because they hold every thing together: planets, asteroids, dwarf planets all held together by the sun’s gravity,and when they combine they make the most beautiful things in the galaxy. Oh wait the beautiful thing is the galaxy’s they make.

They also produce light and heat. We couldn’t survive without them, but don’t be fooled they can also be the most destructive things we could ever imagine. From solar storms to super novas they could wipe out the human race in the blink of an eye. That is why they fascinate me so much. From stars the size of Jupiter to stars bigger than our solar system, you could fit 9.1 billion suns inside the biggest star (it’s called vy Canis Majoris) or 3 quadrillion 729 trillion Earths or 3 729 000 000 000 000 Earths. The smallest known star is only 20% bigger than our Jupiter which is 7.5% of our sun’s mass.

There are so many different types of stars from super big like the insane Hyper Giants to very small like a red or white dwarf star. There are also other stars with strange properties like the strange Pulsar that has two beams of extremely strong radiation and it makes it look like a disco ball because you can see  there is also something that doesn’t yet exist but eventually will, the black dwarf star, the black dwarf star is non existent because it is a extinguished white dwarf star, to make this easier to understand (or harder) basically a stellar nebula occurs and forms either a star or a massive star the normal star grows to become a red giant and then collapse into a white star while causing a planetary nebula and after the white dwarf star dies it turns into a black dwarf star but since it takes longer for a white dwarf to cool down to become a black dwarf then the universe has existed they have to be non existent.

Did you know that in approximately 5 billion years the sun will die? Yes in 5 billion years after a wonderful life of being a main sequence star will finally turn into a red giant then eventually explode and cause a planetary nebula. but we will be long gone before then. either exploring new planets, dead or some how stuck on the planet forever, but even if we were stuck on earth forever we would die from the suns heat before it died, I don’t wan’t to explain the hole posses so pretty much sun as fuel, fuel runs out, finds new hotter beater fuel, beater fuel makes sun bigger hotter and reder until it heats up the earth so much that it boils our oceans, but don’t worry we have 1 billion years till this happens.

List of all the star types ranging from smallest to biggest (because why not) (neutron stars will not be included because they can range from 20 miles to much bigger so they can not be classed) white dwarf star, brown dwarf star, red dwarf star, yellow dwarf star, main sequence star (our sun is main sequence) blue giant, orange giant, red giant, blue super giant, red super giant, blue hyper giant, red hyper giant. I hope you enjoyed my partly reliable list of star sizes. Now for the last little bit of info on stars, a “did you know”. Did you know that a black hole is real and it is caused by a super nova? Did you know that a brown dwarf star is a star that never formed during a stellar nebula? Did you know that neutron stars are so dense (compact) that if you took a tea spoon and scooped part of it up (if you could) it would way one million tons!?

That concludes my blog post on stars I hope you enjoyed reading this and comment what your favorite star is.

Where I Live: Beautiful Vancouver Island

Standard

 

Comox Glacier on a February Morning.jpg

I live in a Province (Canadian version of States) called British Columbia. B.C. is a very cool place, it has mountains for skiing and beaches for swimming. You may think Canada is a cold, desolate place where everyone lives in igloos and wears fur Parkas, but we don’t. Our province (B.C.) ranges from mountains that will force you into igloos, but we also have places like Osoyoos where the water is as warm as the summer oceans in California and is surrounded by desert.

I live on an island called Vancouver Island, in a town called Comox. Comox is the best. Comox has beaches 5 minutes from your house and mountains for skiing, like Mount Washington.

Today in this post I will be talking about the pros and cons in the Comox Valley (Comox Courtenay and Cumberland). One of the cons that doesn’t always matter, but when you are lazy and don’t wan’t to get groceries and just need a bite to eat on Monday or Sunday, good luck, because there is nothing open ever, unless you don’t mind fast food. Now for a pro, one of the best things about the Valley is that you can go (if you are good with time) from skiing and to the beach in the same day because the mountain is just an hour away and the beach 5 minutes. Just make sure it’s not summer or winter because there may be no snow or very cold water.

One of my favorite restaurants is called Smitty’s (yes, another pro) . They have breakfast, lunch, dinner and the key to solving the Monday, Sunday food crisis they are open all week (excluding events such as Christmas eve or day). there food is all local and tastes so good! In fact, if I had to pick a restaurant to keep and have the rest burn to ashes it would be smitty’s, because it has to many pros and almost no cons I can think of. Another reason it’s so good, is because almost nobody goes there so it’s a very quiet restaurant.

Another great part about Comox Valley is the variety of things to do, don’t let me get started on naming them (there is more then you would think). There is cadets (air, sea, army) sailing, swimming, (should have stopped me…) walking, biking, running, swimming lessons, volley ball, tennis… and so many more. We also have gyms, rec centers, tracks, hockey rinks, marinas, rivers and oceans.

If you are looking for an action-packed vacation go to Orlando, if you want to relax, go swimming, skiing, get good food then vacation here. The last pro of this post is going to be the nature. It is such a beautiful place here, we have the woods, oceans, beaches, marinas, mountains, glaciers (the picture at the top is Comox Glacier), lakes, rivers and so much more. We have trails leading through the forests which are perfect for peaceful walks.

This concludes my pros and cons about the Comox Valley I hope you enjoyed and thanks for reading my post.

What is your favorite part about where you live?

Harris Burdick stories:Boy Wonder

Boy wonder 

April 21st, Friday 1996. It has been 24 hours since the accident at Greivers point, we didn’t believe what the locals from the area said about the accident but we took precautions just incase what they said is true. April 22nd, Saturday, The smoke is still rising from the laboratory, we thought the fire department would have put it out by now but no the plumb of black smoke just slowly rising every time we look out the window, taunting us to come near, like a cobra, somehow intriguing. April 23rdSunday, 3 days since the accident at Greivers point is when we start noticing little differences like noises and moved objects in other peoples yards like when Mr. Johnson’s pink flamingo got smashed. My mom is always  carefully peeking through our windows, trying to find something ,which reminded me of the people in Bigfoot documentaries, but not just that, she is being strange it started when she had to leave her job at the lab, it was so weird to see her like this because she usually seems more confident then dad. We were in the backyard helping my older sister with her garden, because I liked working around flowers, when we hard a CRASH!…to be continued 

Fright Nights!

Standard

Blue House 

A a week before Halloween and me, my sister (Ambar), and my dad, and I are leaving Vancouver island on BC ferries because we are going to Playland. If you don’t know what Playland is, it’s a small theme park and during October they have 8 haunted houses set up and when they do  they call It Fright Nights!!!

When we got to Horseshoe Bay, we drove down to the hotel. We checked in, dropped our stuff off and called a taxi to head down to Fight nights. When we arrived we had already bought passes so went in and showed the security people our tickets. But enough about that. Let,s get into the spooky stuff!

The first thing we did was explore the clown house. It was one of the best houses because it was 3D so we had to wear 3D glasses. We got to the front of the line, put on our glasses and went in (I am not going to spoil too much about the houses in case anybody decides to go). You first go through a mirror maze. I hit the pans of mirror twice because I was in front. Later we came to a room that had polka dots and there was an actor hiding in the corner but he was dressed in a polka dot suit. I hadn’t seen him when I walked past…I will never forget that…ever. Eventually we came to a place where you have to walk through a corridor but the walls were inflated. It was super fun!

 After that, we went to the new house which had a bunch of hillbillies in it. It wasn’t very scary although my dad ran ahead of us but when he tried to scare us it didn’t work because he had a red plaid jacket that someone could recognize from at least 600 meters away.

After that house, we wen’t to a house that had a massive mechanical demon in the front and when we went in, there were lots of catacombs and spiders  I have arachnophobia so… it didn’t go well for me when a massive mechanical spider jumped at me.

After the spider that half scared me to death, we wen’t down to a doll factory (I hate dolls, creepy or not, in my eyes there all evil) . After you wait in line, they take you into an elevator. About 30 seconds later, they let you out and you walk through a hall way, and there is a doll on a wheel chair that comes racing at you( not very scary, but I added it because I think it’s kind of funny). Later in the house you come to a room where there are multiple doors and they split you off but later you join back.

One of my favorite houses is called Fear. It basically has all the fears inside of it (including arachnophobia). I was more scared of the vicious dogs that jump at you than the spiders, but in the long run both were scary. There was a problem though last year for claustrophobia (fear of tight spaces that you can’t escape from) they put you in coffins but this year you just walk through a inflatable wall (at least it’s still fun) .

Another favorite of mine is Hollywood Horrors. You can find every famous horror film character in there like Freddy Crugar or jack from The shining. My favorite part of that house was in the end there was a guy with a chain saw. When he saw my sister he revved the chainsaw and pointed to my sister (you may think it is cruel but if you saw her face you would think other wise).

We wen’t to the original house as well because, why not? The original house is always open even in the summer, but we went to it anyway. My favorite part of this house is at the very end where you walk on a bridge over a spinning corridor that has blinking lights, it gives you horrible nausea, but it is so worth it.

That is the end of my blog post about the Fright nights at the PNE in Vancouver, thanks for reading and have a nice day. Have you ever been to an amusement park with haunted houses, if you have what was the scariest one? did it have actors in it? was there more then one house?

Alex Rider: Super Spy

Standard

 Pigeon Man

Did you know that fourteen year old spies exist? Well they don’t unless you read the Alex Rider series. I love the series so that’s why I chose the main character of all the books.  In this blog post I will be sharing some learner traits that I think made Alex Rider who he is now. 

First of all, I think that Alex Rider’s most recognizable learner trait is definitely risk taking. I think he is a risk taker because he always gets himself into situations that are very dangerous. An example being when he was in the hot air balloon in England fighting one of Scorpia’s best men, after he discovered that what Scorpia’s Operation Invisible Sword was very lethal ( read the 5th book to understand more ).  

Another learner trait that I recognize in Alex Rider is industriousness because he gets his job done every single time. He never loses focus on what he has to do but it’s usually because whatever he is focusing on would have to be hard to forget because for Alex Rider it is something like a nuclear crisis or madmen with bullets flying all over the place. 

I think that his third most recognizable trait is confidenceEven though at some points in the books he is lacking the confidence to do something, he always finds and he is much more confident for even getting himself into situations like that in the first place. Some examples of his confidence are when he was trapped in the concrete  room while Venice was flooding and yet he had the courage to go down through the floor boards. Because there was no foundation, he fell into a hole full of water but there was a pipe. Long story short, he built up the courage to swim into a potential death trap. 

I want to conclude my post by saying how Alex Rider has shown that you can build up courage in any situation you are in no mater how difficult it might be. he shows that you can do anything even stuff you cant imagine yourself doing and yet you actually can, just like Alex Rider.

The Life Cycle of Water in Winter

Standard

Alexey Kljatov (blog graphics) via Compfight

As you know, winter is near and Halloween is past, but I never thought winter would be right at our doorstep.

It is November 2nd, just two days after Halloween and it’s snowing. No, it’s half a blizzard out there. I have never seen this much snow in November before. Besides that fact, I looked out the classroom window and thought, what would it be like to be a snow flake?

At first he’s just water vapor floating high in the sky and the temperature is -2 degrees Celsius, but hes not snow, Not yet.

All of a sudden he collides with a speck of dust. Now his water vapor has a surface to form ice on (science) and now he’s bigger but still merely a speck of ice.

Now hes colliding with more water witch means more ice soon he is heavy enough to start falling. He floats slowly but he’s gradually getting  heavier and heavier because he is colliding with bigger ice particles.

Now hes a snow flake, drifting down, down, down.

Now he can see the small town. The town’s only lights are the street lights. He is getting closer to the town now. Finally, he reaches his destination. He lands on the soft ground. His journey is now over…until he melts back into water and evaporates to become rain.

So now you know my version of the life cycle of water in winter, whats yours?

Hi, I’m Thai,

I live in Comox B.C. which is a province in Canada. I love sailing catamarans (a boat with two hulls) in the Comox harbor with my sail academy called Compass Adventure, I also golf and ski. My favorite color is blue, my favorite foods are pad thai (which comes from Thailand), pizza, pumpkin pie and for breakfast/desert I love to eat waffles, french toast and angel food cake.

I have one sister named Ambar she rides horses. I have three pets: two dogs named Max and Lola, and a kitten named Eddie. M,y pass time hobbies are to play board games, bike around town and play video games.

My favorite school subjects is math and science but i also like art, and unlike normal kids I actually like school ( sometimes when I’m not tired). My favorite season is summer because there is no school, but there are beaches and family trips. My favorite holiday is Halloween because my family and two other families plus lots of friends come over for a massive Halloween party every year.

Thanks for reading my post All About Me
