The Enderman

Endermen are a type of monster from mine craft. Mine craft is a game where you can build and collect things eg. houses, buildings, etc. In survival mode you have to defeat monsters. An Enderman is one of these. All monsters have a special power or weapon. The Enderman’s power is he can teleport and pick up blocks. This power makes them extremely annoying because they can steal your blocks.

Endermen have a very peculiar way of getting provoked. As well as being attacked, Endermen become hostile when players look at their upper legs, torso or head. This occurs even when players are 64 blocks away!! That’s a lot of blocks!!

Endermen appear frequently in The End, their home world. They also spawn in the Overworld, although only about 10 times more rare then normal zombies. They spawn in pairs and can be seen regularly at night in groups of up to five.

Endermen have glowing purple eyes, long limbs, a thin body, and are 3 blocks high. When aggressive they will open their mouths and their bodies will shake violently. A distinct sound will play when an aggressive Enderman is rushing towards you. When they do teleport they tend to appear behind the player.

Wipeout is a reality game show in which contestants compete in the world’s largest obstacle course for $50,000! It is very funny if you like to watch people failing obstacles and continuously falling down.

6a00d83451d69069e201156fb531bb970c-320wiDid you know that Wipeout scored the highest premiere rating of any new show in summer 2008? Wipeout is mainly a summertime show, though it is still fun to play it during winter (also known as winter wipeout), spring (AKA spring wipeout) and winter wipeout (deck the balls).

Some country like it and have made their own versions. These countries include Great Britain, Argentina and Australia.

Some of the obstacles include most people’s favorite the Big Balls, the sucker punch, grandma’s house, the cookie cutter and the jump of fate. Wipeout is the best comedy-obstacle course ever!!!!

Dinosaurs are the giant lizards that ruled the earth for a long time like humans do today. There were different kinds of species and some of them were carnivores and some of them were herbivore, but there were few species of omnivores like Heterodontosaurus ,Therizinosaurs ,Troodons. They lived million of years ago and they became extinct because of a giant rock from sky. It was a disaster but some people think these lizards died because of mammals. They think mammals ate the all the eggs of dinosaurs but scientist have proof that mammals just couldn’t eat all the eggs at the same time. The mammals that lived in the time of the dinosaurs were too small to eat the eggs . There is strong proof that the dinosaur mothers risked their life to protect their egg from there enemies or from predators. For example the triceratop mother would fight with a tyrannosaurus rex, and scientists have proof.

Starting Transformation periods of dinosaurs

Cambrian period: (570 million years ago)
The first fishes, corals, trilobites and shellfish appeared.
Ordovician period: (505 million years ago)
The first nautiloids appeared. Corals and trilobites were common
Silurian period: (438 million years ago)
The first land plants and giant sea scorpions called Eurypterids appeared.
Devonian period: (408 million years ago)
The first amphibians, insects and spiders appeared

Biggest transformation period of dinosaurs

Triassic period [237 MA]
The first dinosaurs appeared, the first mammals appeared and fishes came to the land and turned into lizards.

Jurassic period [195 million years ago]
Powerful dinosaurs appeared and some dinosaurs weapons.

Last period of dinosaurs [65 millions ago]
The best dinosaurs appeared but they died

Ultimate fights!!!!!

Gianatasaurs VS argentinesarus
Allosaarus VS stegasaurus
Tyrannosaurus VS triceratop

Who do you think is the most popular dinosaur? I think T-rex. Here are some interesting facts about this great dinosaur.

One of the most powerful dinosaurs who ever walked on earth 70 million years ago was the T-rex and this dinosaur was a big threat to herbivores like Triceratops. These dinosaurs have giant jaws that are 5 times stronger than a crocodile and just one power full bite can kill a sauropod [if they can catch one].These dinosaurs had a very good sense of smell but they were not very smart.

Interesting facts
Name-Tyrannosaurus Rex
Name means-tyrant lizard
Lived when-70 million years ago
Weight-up to 71/2 tones
Height-12-13 feet tall at hips [the hip would have been twice as tall as a man]
Length –up to 43 feet
Weapons –massive jaws 50 to 60 blade like teeth, some up to 9 inch long
Habitat-open woodland

One last thing we are lucky to have brave scientist to dig up these dinosaurs and prove that these creatures had ruled the earth for a long time…

Nefertiti – Pharaoh Queen of Egypt

titlenef_thumbHow does Nefertiti one of the most powerful and beautiful queens of ancient Egypt vanish from history? With the help of her enemies, of course. One thing that egyptologists agree on is, when it comes to Nefertiti, she had a lot of enemies. She was the wife of pharaoh Akhenaten and maybe ruler in her own right after his death. In 1912 an amazing limestone sculpture of her face was dug out at the royal retreat of Amarna. It is more than 3,200 years old. Her name means “The beautiful(or perfect) woman has come.” Some scholars think Nefertiti traveled to Egypt from a different land. Others think she was royal by birth. Some think she didn’t have royal blood at all. A man named Ay killed the boy king (I think the boy king is her son.)

Rosa Parks


Rosa Parks is an African American hero. She was born on Feb 4th, 1913. Her story is unusual. For a small reason she was sent to jail.

One day, Dec 1st, 1955 in Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa sat in a bus in the section where both white people and black people could sit. After a while, a white man wanted to sit in her seat, but she refused! Even the bus driver came to ask her to move, but she still refused! “Get up, lady or else you’ll get arrested!” the bus driver screamed. But Rosa still refused. She thought that black people should be treated the same way white people were treated.

Soon she got arrested. Then Martin Luther King Jr. got Rosa freed. He then organized the bus boycott.This meant all black people would walk instead of using buses. So all black people walked for a year to change the laws that said black people had to sit at the back of the bus.  And after one whole year of walking the law was changed.

Rosa Parks fought for what she thought was right. She died on Oct 24th, 2005. She was a true civil rights hero.

The lion is one of the most dangerous animals in the African savanna. Lions live as a pride. There are a lot of female lions in the pride but only three or two male lions in the pride. Only females hunt and male lions protect the pride from enemies such as hyenas. For most of the time during the day male lions sleep. Lions only live in the savanna in Africa.
