Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton is one of the worlds most famous scientists. He want always good at school though. When he was a child, he did not do very well in school and most of his teachers never thought he would ever be good at anything academic. He couldn't even successfully fun his family's farm. Then his uncle convinced is mother to let him go to Cambridge University. That decision changed Newtons life, and possibly the world. At the university Isaac Newton received a normal education, with all of the classes, but Newton has a particular interest in science. The decision to send Newton to school and not just give up on him had a major effect in the scientific revolution. If Isaac Newton hadn't went to Cambridge, he never would've gotten a decent education. then wouldn't have developed the concept of nature that formed our future.

How to Survive an Earthquake

If you live in a place that has a lot of earthquakes or just want to be prepared in case of an emergency, here is how to survive or persevere through an earthquake. First you and your family need to make a plan. You should discuss where to meet up afterward, who to call, where the safety kit is, how to stay safe, those kinds of things. Second you need to make a safety kit. In there you should put a flashlight, a blanket, some food that won't go bad, an extra phone, first aid supplies like band-aids, and whatever else you might need in an emergency. During the earthquake if you are inside, stay there and go under a sturdy desk or table. If you are outside, try to avoid building and get to an open space where there aren't things that can fall on top of you. If you are driving, stay in the car, slow down, and park on the side of the road and try to avoid bridges, tall buildings, trees, and power lines. After the earthquake, check for injuries on yourself and others around you and help them if needed. Then you need to either get to or stay in a safe place and be ready for the aftershock which is not as bad as the initial earthquake, but can still cause some damage. Lastly you need to remain calm. Do not panic or get upset because if you follow the plan that you make with your family, you will be fine.
