The Secret of the Cosmos Part 1

The Secret of the Cosmos

Part 1

Sean Oh

           The main business about space is all about the planets, history of the galaxy, history of, well, really Earth, and stars and their mysterious ways. Today, I believe that this is a great thing to start on to finding the secrets, but the real question that we have to ask is how did all this come to be?

The history of simply everything that cosmologists, scientists, astrologists will want to know how the universe really came to be this. But first, we have to look to the close distance (or so it seems) first before we expand. Now, let’s get started.

Our solar system is the main thing that researchers are trying to uncover first. Can there be life on Mars? What’s inside Neptune? Is there life on moons? How did Uranus get turned sideways? These questions are being asked by many scientists, and maybe there is a solution to finding all the secrets to the solar system. Maybe Jupiter has more thunderstorms an earth year than how much years that it has been since 0 A. D. Or maybe there’s more to Saturn than its beautiful rings. We can only answer these questions by thinking outside the box, which scientists have already done.

As we get further away from the planets and onto the other systems (a star with multiple planets into the galaxy, the Milky Way. With the center of the galaxy a black hole, (It’s a prediction.) it’s the spiral galaxy that is beautiful in sight, and it’s full of systems like ours. It might be to think why such a beautiful galaxy should have such questions, such as how much solar systems are there? Or, how much planets in the galaxy might have life? These are being asked today, as scientists are trying to uncover the secret.

Life beyond Earth is a man in 5,000,000 A. D’s dream come true. Most people want to find if there are really other human beings out in the universe, or are there aliens, learning algebra in 1st grade? We won’t really know those questions—but there have been recent discoveries how there really might be life in many different planets out there—in strange ways.

Maybe we really don’t need to worry about the life beyond Earth till the last few years Earth is alive. Maybe they’ll just discover it now. But maybe there are differ types of life—like on Europa.

The Harry Potter Series

The Harry Potter Series

Sean Oh
The Harry Potter series is one of the most popular series of the present day. Started with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and ended with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, J. K. Rowling creates great characters and it is unique from all other.
Harry Potter is not a normal kid. Although he feels like there’s more people that have the same situation, he is a unique kid. When he was one year old, his parents were murdered by a dark lord. Weird things are happening to him at his aunt and uncle’s house. Someone’s sending him letters, and multiplies every day, and a snake talks to him and glass is broken and the snake is free. His aunt and uncle, along with Dudley, their son are getting suspicious, and just when the rising action looks at its highest point, BOOM! Someone busts the door in a cabin his family takes him to. It’s Rubeus Hagrid, the keeper of the keys in Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
He tells Harry all about his parents and how they died, and wizards and that he’s also a wizard, and how everyone in their world knows his name. Now, the Dursleys are angry and insults him. Then, Hagrid uses magic to make Dudley’s bottom have a pig’s tail. He was signed up for Hogwarts, and would be sent there in September. He couldn’t wait to go there, but the future that awaits him he did not know.
He gets his school supplies while meeting a pale boy the same age as him. He was going to Hogwarts, too. When it’s time, he’s confused. At King’s Cross, he doesn’t know where the Hogwarts Express is! Luckily, he meets the Weasley family, whose family is also going to Hogwarts, helps him navigate where it is. He meets a kid called Ron Weasley, and become friends on the train. We’ll stop the introduction here.
The story of Harry Potter created very greatly by the author, will be a great book in the future. I believe it’s going to be a great classic book for the next generation. It’s one of the best books made in history of book-making. It’s just a good book to read, after all.

Elementary School Life

Elementary School Life

           This fall I am becoming a middle school student. I have enjoyed elementary school, from kindergarten to 4th grade. I can’t wait to go to 5th grade, but memories shatter the brakes and I feel I have to tell you these special moments about myself. So, go ahead and read on.

In my kindergarten year, I had met my classmates, but had trouble finding a friend that had just the same characters as me: smart, sporty, gamer, Asian, and other, but there was nobody that really had at least two of these traits. In my first grade year, I was also unlucky. Nobody moved out from my school I had went to the past year, and the new kids did not have a relation between me and them, just being an acquaintance with them. We changed to a public school after that.

In second grade, it was a tough year at my new school. There was a gifted program in the school, and still no real best friend with me in that time. There was somebody who was Asian, but was a different grade. I mean, really, I just can’t talk to him that often at school. This was a big problem, so when I was given the opportunity move to a new state, Pennsylvania, I took this chance and things took a deep turn.

In third grade there were some friends that had relationships that were sporty and is smart. My school year was fun, not only because of them, but also because of swimming. I excelled in swimming, and in my first year, I got 8th, 7th and 10th in the championship meet that year. Fourth grade was not that much different. I literally had the funniest teacher in fourth grade. Even my extra gifted schedule didn’t stop me from getting great grades. That year, with an iPad to help the subjects out, I got great grades in math, and writing. The iPads helped build creativity, it penetrates temptation with focused work. Because of this, I think I will get really good grades in 5th grade.

My elementary school life now is my plan to build on in the future. I believe that the grades will skyrocket up for me this fall. I believe this early push will bring me to success in the future. I hope that will be true. In fact, I guarantee it will.

Mensa: The Idea of Smart

Mensa: The Idea of Smart

Sean Oh

           Mensa is one of the biggest group organizations on Earth. It’s all about the intellect of other people, and it is one of the greatest things you really might need for your business: to be smart. “What is the requirements, and what do they have in mind with me?” You might ask. Well, figure out right now.

Mensa is a group for very smart people so they can articulate their thoughts and make new friends with people with similar traits as them. If you did the test to get to Mensa, you’d have to get to the 99th percentile from all people who take the test. If you reach that high, you can go to Mensa and get a membership! If you’ve made it this far, congratulations! You are officially a Mensan!

Activities that only Mensa really offers is: 1: the gatherings. These gatherings will help your education and you can meet new people with the same interest. There is a gathering that brings the whole USA around one city and the exploration begins. In July 2015, they went to Louisville, Kentucky, and in the summer of 2014, they went to Boston, Massachusetts. Those are some activities Mensa does.

These smart people like these great groups that have the same traits as them, from the west coast to the east coast in the USA Maybe someday the Mensa program will be upgraded for the best for the apocalypse of the world.

How to Play Golf

How to Play Golf

Sean Oh

Golf is a great sort. All ages play the game, from child to elder. Lots of people enjoy playing golf for the fun of it. I think it builds the basic physical skills: power, strength, stamina, and more. We see golf as a fun sport to play, and the rules are simple as pie.

In golf, you hit a ball with a golf club many times until you can get it inside a hole. If you have least number of hits at the end of the game, you win. The length of the course usually judges how many strokes you need for par, which is what the average player should get, which is usually the course’s recommended strokes. If you can get your strokes below par, you will win games.

Ground types are usually the main thing that’s being put into play. It can be an advantage or a disadvantage to be in these areas. The fairway is a very nice terrain to land on when you’ve taken your first stroke. It’s easier to hit the ball on the fairway, especially because of how low the grass is in that terrain. The green is where the hole is located, and you will use a putter to get the ball into the hole. The rough isn’t a good place to hit the ball in. If you hit it in that area, it’s just like playing golf in your backyard: playing with higher grass than normal. However, the bunker is far worse than hitting it in the rough. Now that it’s landed inside a literal sand pit, you really have to use a chip shot to get this ball out of the bunker.

There are many different clubs out there, and you must have at least 5 of these clubs. The driver is usually the club for the job when you hit with the tee. The wood is a good idea for hitting balls that are 200-300 yards away from the hole, and on the fairway with no tee. The hybrid clubs are usually for swinging in the rough, and the irons are used for just a basic 100-200 yard hit to get a nice approach to the green, with 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 irons. The higher the number, the less yards it goes. The wedges are just for an approach to the green that is about 20-50 yards away. The putter is used for putting the ball into the hole on the green, as I said earlier on.

Golf is a good game that many play for fun, professional competition, and for just-for-fun competitions that are as fun as eating pie, cake, or pizza. Golf is a great sport for the whole world. I think it’s fun. I’ve played before. Maybe you want to, too.

The Industrial Revolution

The Industrial Revolution

Sean Oh

           Our electronics started here, in this revolution. As mechanical energy was building, we had a great system that led to electrical power. What is the revolution? It’s the Industrial Revolution. Maybe you’ve heard of it before. It’s a really cool power system that led to the electronic build-up. Let’s see what it is.

Many things led to the revolution, but the most things that led to it were steam, power to do something by just a movement of the body, and buttons that when you press them they do something. The spinning-jenny and the flying shuttle were on of the first inventions in the Industrial Revolution. Mostly because of imports and exports, most countries at that time had a variety of material to use, especially England, who had lots of cloth.

In the early 19th century, the steamboat was created in the early 19th century, as it used steam as its main usage. Railroads were being built. In labor, less women died because of the health rising, which made it less risky to even be pregnant. Even the USA, who had the War of 1812, had some inventions, like the factories, and they produced steam as well as any power plant we see today. Farming tools were improving, and the new sewing machine makes fabric cost less, so, it was all a win-win.

In the next few decades, Thomas Edison created lights for NYC, Alexander Graham Bell made telephone lines so people could communicate across the state, and Samuel Morse made Morse code for communication for war-like reasons. Other countries had not industrialize, like China, Spain, and India, as they didn’t revolutionize till in the mid-19th century.

The Industrial Revolution was a great revolution, and if it weren’t for that, we wouldn’t have our everyday things, like cars, trucks, airplanes, electricity, and all those everyday things we use. What would we do without them? We wouldn’t imagine seeing that in the world.

Thanks to my aunt for the idea.

Podcasts: The Radio-Like Feature

Radios are the many things we listen to in our lives. Maybe you’ve heard of podcasts. Podcasts are just like radio, although it’s not live. We are listening to a live podcast almost every time we get in our cars. Maybe it’s the thing that we do that makes things popular, which is exactly why they made that. It’s to feature people who aren’t even famous and make them something people want to see every day.

If you have an iPhone, iPad, or an iOS 8.0 or higher iPod, you will have a podcast app. This shows many podcasts you can listen to, such as educational podcasts, musical podcasts, and much, much more to uncover. There are many podcasts out in the world. In the website Brains On, they put on podcasts about questions that are being asked about kids that are wondering about something scientific.

These podcasts were made so you can listen to something while you’re doing something else, like listening to a podcast while reading a book, or doing some math problems in your math book (Not recommended unless teacher allows you.). Maybe there’ll be a podcast that you can hear with just plugging earphones to your ears.

Today, technology with the podcasts is one of the most technological build-ins we’ve ever seen, so we might see a bigger picture with other electronics soon. In the end, electronics will rocket-launch us to survival beyond Earth.

As the world’s history starts to unfold, maybe the listening will start to make things much easier for us to survive. If we can adapt to the electronic podcasts, maybe it’ll save us from dying from the Sun, as some scientists might know why. Maybe we’ll have to try to adapt great listening skills for the next generations.
