HUGO CHAVEZ

You might know him for being one of the worlds highest producing oil president, but he’s just a Venezuelan president. His name is Hugo Chavez. Hugo Chavez has been the president of Venezuela for over twenty years. Chavez did some things to the Americans. Americans are the highest oil consuming country in the world. Venezuela is number three of the highest producing oil country in the world. Americans started getting oil from Venezuela, but Chavez did not like the idea. So, Chavez started making them pay for the exports of oil.

Chavez was fifty-seven years old. He got cancer. He was cured with all the medical assistance. From being so stressed from the Venezuelan elections, he got cancer again. That time it came even worse. Hugo Chavez died March 5, 2013. He remains a strong leader for the poor, but has a very bad reputation with the rich. R.I.P. Mi compadre. Chavez is a very well, good role model for my family, and other poor. When he died people cried, or people celebrated. He is still the president of Venezuela. Venezuela has other elections coming in a couple weeks make sure to leave a comment.images-9

FELIX BAUMGARTNER

Felix Baumgartner has broken the highest record for free-fall. He even broke the sound barrier. His free-fall took place from the stratosphere. To go up to the stratosphere he had to take a helium balloon. His speed was 834 mph. This event took place on October 14, 2012. He is an Austrian skydiver. He went to military in Austria where they taught him how to skydive and parachute.

I would not do this because I think space s a very big place and I’m scared that I would get lost. Its weird that I think like that.I always ask my mom “What if something happens while I’m in space?” Everyone has their own opinion and their own fears. That’s my opinion! Write you opinion in the comment section. Tell me what you think about this man. Would you do it? Read the article at Google! Thanks for reading!!!!!!

WAIT I’M NOT DONE YET! Watch the video on Youtube. The link is right below these paragraphs. I think this man has guts to even trust a freakin’ balloon to take him up to outer space. I would not trust this process at all. Well, he has trained for this his whole life so i guess its worth it. NOW, ill say ….THANKS FOR READING!!!!!!!!!

Our Condolences…

sandy-hook-elementary-school-photo-from-newton-patch

On Friday, December 14th, tragedy struck the hearts of men and women worldwide. Sandy Hook Elementary School fell victim to an event that marked the fourth mass shooting to happen during the presidency of President Barrack Obama. Newtown, Conneticut is mourning the loss of 20 beautiful children and 6 brave adults who passed away in tragedy that will forever be remembered. As a student myself, I felt very depressed coming to my School today. I couldn’t help but think about what could happen to anyone. I couldn’t stop thinking about those parents who are grieving the loss of their innocent children. No words can comfort them. We can only let them know how much we care for them. Let us all try to be decent human beings and post positive comments on the vast internet. Do not cause drama or post your negative thoughts. Let us only help one another and give our sympathies for those touched by this event. We are all affected by this tragedy in this country. Hug your children and hold all of your family. Let us all work together to overcome this inncident. From all of us here at Panther Press, we give our Condolences to those who lost family in this unthinkable tragedy.

Presidential Debate

Presidential Debate

Mitt Romney the Republican from Massachusetts and governor and the current President of The United States of America Barrack Obama. These are the two presidential candidates. Governor Romney and President Obama have done three heated debates in the course of the month of October, and in this article I will be giving a brief recap of each debate and in my opinion who won the debate and who I think will win the race for President. First before we get in to the debates I will give a brief bio of each candidate.

First Mitt Romney (Republican candidate), the Governor of Massachusetts. Romney was born on March, 12th, 1947.  Romney is the son of George Romney who was a former governor of Michigan. Romney has run for president before but lost to the Republican primary to John McCain. Romney attended both Harvard law and Business school. Romney married Ann Davies together they have five boys Tagg, Josh, Matt, Craig, and Ben.

Now to President Obama. Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu Hawaii. Obama was raised by his grandparents. Obama is a lawyer and also attended Harvard, as well as being the Illinois Senator. He married Michelle Robinson. Together they have two girls Natasha, and Malia Obama.

Now to the debates. The first debate, in my general opinion, was won by Mitt Romney because he was more prepared and had statements that countered attacked many things Obama had to say.  Also, I think that hemade more eye contact with the people than Obama. Even though Obama had the facts and had more cold hard facts than Romney.  But what I say is that its not how many facts you know its how you use the facts and use them well and that’s what Romney did in that first debate. The body language is also another big thing, that in my opinion Obama lost by in the first debate. The camera made it look as if Obama was slouching as Romney was standing tall. That was my opinion on the first debate.

The second debate. I don’t think Obama could do worst than he did in the first debate and he did a whole lot better in this debate. He kept Romney on his toes and guessing and that’s what I was looking for, he engaged more and kept giving more and more attacks to the point where Romney had to think his plan over during the debate. Obama did everything better in this debate his body language, his speech, and his come backs to what Romney had to say. Romney did the same. But the American citizens don’t want the same they want a change, and if we can’t get a change in the debate how can we get one in the oval office. If you can’t tell who I think won this debate well by an landslide OBAMA.

Now the third and final debate. Like is said about Obama I am saying about Mitt Romney. He can’t possibly do worst than he did in the second debate. Obama can’t do better than he did in the second debate but to my surprise he did. He was majorly prepared and I saw it from the first word. Romney was also prepared and this is the debate that I was looking for, two very good presidential candidates prepared for anything, and ready to fire back at anything the other had to say. This is it the final debate. It was a very heated debate everyone ready it kept me on the edge of my seat through out the whole debate . But in all Obama won. He won in the majority of the things said before. He did well but so did Romney but Obama did slightly better. So, that’s the wrap up of the debates. Now to see who won.

Marvel: Avengers 2 and Spider~Man NOW OWNED BY SONY?!

What Went Wrong?

You know how “The Avengers” was a huge success? Marvel released super-hero movies that had Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, and the Black Widow in them to eventually bring them together in “The Avengers”. As you all know (or at least most of you know), at the end of the credits there was a preview for the next movie showing that the next villain will be Thanos. But Marvel will first make “Iron Man 3”, “Thor 2- The Dark World”, “The Wolverine”, “Ant Man”, and “Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier”. Will “Ant Man”, “Spider Man”, and “Wolverine” be a part of the second “Avengers” movie?

Maybe an entirely new Marvel character will join the Avengers. Hopefully, Marvel includes some more unique-yet-popular characters such as Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Nova, or Black Panther. “Ultimate Spider Man” and “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” are increasing the popularity of the heroes and they would certainly bring life to the Movie. There have been some references to vibranium and Iron Man could at least mention Rand- Meachum Corp., since Iron Fist and Iron Man are both rich and popular in society. But what about Spider Man?

He is popular and would be a great asset. However, his involvement in the Avengers really isn’t Marvel’s choice. Marvel (or Marvel Disney, the only real reason Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Ultimate Spider Man is on Disney XD) is either having a conniption or just have problems. However, half of Spider Man’s rights now belong to Sony.

Spider Man! Really? Spider Man is like the face of Marvel and now he belongs to Sony?  Marvel has to ask for Sony’s approval of involving Spider Man for anything. Rest assured that I am doing everything possible to connect with Marvel and will post my progress as soon as I get a response.

Victoria Secrets Fashion Show 2012

The annual Victoria Secrets fashion show is every year. There is always a famous musician that performs his or her latest hits. This year Victoria Secrets had Rhianna perform “diamonds.” Justin Bieber performed an acoustic version of “As Long As You Love Me.” Victoria Secrets is for older woman to shop for there underwear. Young girls are disgusted by Victoria Secrets ,but the truth is they be shopping there when they are teens, just saying. At the annual Fashion show the models are called angels. They have different types of angels every year. In 2012 they were candy angels. In 2011 they were aquatic angels as in under the sea.

Victoria Secret has been around for a while now. It is also a store all around the world. The biggest Victoria Secrets shop is in new york city. Victoria Secrets is known for its bras and well you know the rest. Victoria Secrets is just a regular store that only sells bras, underwear, lotion, makeup, etc. Usually women wouldn’t like to shop there. Sometimes I shop there for the perfumes and creams. They have all types of smells.

Iron Fist- A Hero Without Recognition

This week I’ve decided to walk away from this whole What to Do thing because of a huge injustice that has occurred to me. In my last article I talked about Iron Fist, a martial arts master that can use his chi in many ways. But, after I wrote the article I realized that very few people know about him or use him in Marvel things. In Ultimate Spider-Man Iron Fist is portrayed as a spacey type of person that says a lot of wise things while in all actuality Iron Fist talks like a normal person. He also has better fighting skills than portrayed but I am pretty sure, or at least I hope, that the team’s potential will show later in the series.

While Iron Fist isn’t a very popular hero, his popularity is growing. On Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Iron Fist and his partner Luke Cage (Power Man in Ultimate Spider-Man), were in the episode “To Steal an Ant-Man” and had a cameo in the episode “Yellowjacket”. Iron Fist is also in the games Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 and Avenger’s Alliance. He is not in many video/computer games, I hope he is in Marvel Heroes, and just a superhero that is just not well known.

Here are some reasons he would be great superhero video/ computer game character.

  • He has melee, ranged, and healing attacks
  • He would probably double jump
  • He is raw power
  • He would be a great variety and is lethal

(These are basic reasons and I could name much more)

All in all Iron Fist is just a cool superhero and would definitely be somebody that is just meant to be in a video game. He must also be in more things like children’s comics. So if by some improbable chance that anybody from Marvel Universe is reading this you now know is my humble request, also please add some more Nova things to Marvel media.

Gray Matter: Extracting Bismuth From Pepto-Bismol Tablets

THERE’S HEAVY METAL IN PINK PILLS!!! Pepto-Bismol is carefully synthesized organic molecules so potent each pill contains only a few milligrams of the active ingredient. As we all know Pepto-Bismol is a modern medicine, and all modern medicines now are synthesized in something. Pepto-Bismol is a very interesting exception. The active ingredient that it contains in Bismuth which is a heavy metal often used in shotgun pellets. Since there is a lot of Bismuth used in every dose. So much in fact that the doctor was able to extract a slug of Bismuth metal from some pink pills.

Every two-pill dose of Pepto-Bismol is more than a quarter of a gram of Bismuth subsalicylate and about an eighth of that weight is Bismuth. Salicylate is an organic molecule. In order to get bismuth metal is to reduce it chemically, just like the way people reduce iron ore. So basically the point of this article is when you eat Pepto-Bismol pills your eating metal.

Pottermore: Game Review

In this game, Pottermore, you go through each chapter, buying your books, finding galleons, being sorted into your House, and dueling, potion-making, and even searching the castle, while following in Harry’s footsteps. When you go through the chapters of each book, you can find potion ingredients, which give your house points. Galleons are stored in your Gringotts vault, which can be accessed from Diagon Alley, at any time. Dueling is a lot harder. You have to type the letters, but only when the smoke reaches it, when the circle is its biggest. If the spell is cast correctly, it has a certain potency, judging by how well it was cast. The more potency, the stronger the spell/ charm/ curse/ hex/ jinx. When you’re going to duel, you should practice first, other wise you may incorrectly cast the spell. When you go to Ollivander’s to get your wand, you answer questions to help the wand choose you. The same goes with the sorting hat. When you get chosen for your house, the whole screen is filled with the sorting hat’s brim, as if you really were having the sorting hat on your head…
