Sand Tiger Sharks

Sand Tiger sharks, also known as "gray nurse sharks" and "sand tigers", belong to the family Odontaspididae, although they are sometimes incorrectly labeled Carchariidae. Sand Tigers have teeth that are about 1.5 inches long, and are very pointy, like a drill bit. Their teeth point out at all directions, even when the mouth is closed, which leads to a very ragged looking mouth, shown in the picture above. Sand Tigers have a shoreline habitat, and live in temperate or warm waters worldwide. They swim from 6 to 600 feet underwater. Sand Tigers, when young, can have a few predators, but when adult, their only threat are humans. As a result of several factors, one of which is shark hunting, Sand Tigers are a threatened species in some places of the world, and vulnerable in others.

Sand Tigers are the only shark that go to the surface of the water, and gulp air. The air allows them to suspend in the water, silent, while they look for food.

Changes for my blog.

There are some new changes coming for my blog. the first is the obvious one- the background. I needed a change, so I got a new background. Second, I'm going to (try) to stop posting as much useless information, and much more about school, educational things, and just plain interesting things. (And good news, too, everyone loves good news. :)

My (finished) Synopsis!!!

1692, Salem, Massachusetts. To Kezia Dustin, a 14 year-old servant girl, it seems that everyday brins more and more terror, as report after report of witchcraft come pouring into her town. When Kezia's mistress, a real witch named Lyndia, is accused, Kezia knows she has to save her from the horrible fate that awaits Lyndia, and all those accused.

Soon Kezia's optimism is the only thing keeping her from giving up. When a plan made by an actual wicked witch is discovered, it brings despair that puts even Kezia's formerly unwavering hope to the test. The question now, is can Kezia win?

please please please please give me constructive critisism. I really need help with it... would you read this book???

what is so special about Pi, anyway? Sure, it's famous, but why? Well, today, national pie day (March is the third month, so we write "3", then it's the fourteenth, and then 3.14 is the first three numbers of Pi..), I decided to find out some things about pi. First, Pi is an irrational number. An irrational number is a number that has no end, and that have no patterns. pi has been traced out to many millions of numbers after the decimal point, but it hasn't come close to the end, and there is no traceable pattern, as far as we can tell.
The symbol we associate with Pi (There is a picture at the top of this post), is really the Greek letter for "P". William Jones, a Welsh mathematician was the first person to use this letter as the sign for pi, in 1706. The ancient Egyptian mathematicians found pi to equal 3.16, and Ptolemy figured it out to 3.1416. (all is right except for the "6" at the end. It's really "5".) Pi is a very useful number. If you multiply pi times a diameter of a circle, you find out the circumference. If you multiply Pi times the radius of a circle squared (meaning that, if, for example, you measured the radius, and it was four, you would multiply four by four. If it was sixteen, it would be sixteen by sixteen, eight would be eight times eight, and so on and so forth.), you get the area of the circle.

Oh my gosh, I've already used that title...

You know it's sad when you go and write a title for your post, and it's already been used. For example, I've already used the title "Hello, and sorry for the wait!". That's depressing. Anyway.

So, I really am sorry about not posting anything of any value what so ever.... I've been taking a small break from blogging. Updates that are going on: My mom is writing her book again... (it sounds pretty cool..), I am writing my book again (of course it's amazing), and... I'm almost thirteen!! (not the word "almost") my birthday isn't until the twenty eighth. :P My friend Vivian's birthday has already passed, however. Yay for her, she's the same age as me... for a little while. *evil laugh* *sings happy birthday song*

My cousin's birthday is coming up, too... so let's all wish a happy birthday to Mary Bridget!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARY BRIDGET!!! (not that she reads this blog, or anything... :P but I can email all the happy birthdays to her. :D )

So... yeah.. birthdays. My Aunt's birthday was recently... so.. many, many birthdays. :P

sorry for the long post... the long, and now that I realize it, boring, random, pointless post. sorry!! and farewell!!! *waves*
