Forty years ago, a question sprung up about whether lightning is able to strike on Venus. Now, that question is close to being answered.
Lightning is a force found all over our solar system - from Earth to Uranus. Venus, however, is cloaked in thick clouds - preventing satellites and spacecraft from seeing anything on the ground of the planet.
Ten years ago, the Japanese spacecraft - Akatsuki - was sent to orbit Venus. It failed to do so the first time so went around all the planets before returning to Venus to try a second time. Akatsuki has been circling around Venus for about five years now and, for the first time, has caught a flash of light on camera.
Whether lightning does occur on Venus is something scientists have been arguing about for a very long time. Now that a possible lightning flash has been caught on camera, experts are arguing even more. Some say that the flash could have been a big space rock that blew up while it was going to crash into the planet. Others say it could have been light that reflected off of the spacecraft's loose gear.
Now, after the recent flash of light, a team of Japanese scientists are working to get rid of any other possible things that could have gotten in the way and accidentally caused the flash of light. Lots of people are excited because if the light was actually a lightning strike it could help to find what other things are on the surface of the clouded planet and if it is possible for humans to live there.

Dangerous WebsitesAlthough there are many different websites that could hack, influence, or mislead you or a unknowing victim today we'll be focusing on a forum website that you've probably heard of considering the attention it got from trolling and plenty of other things, 4chan.
4chan was created on October 1, 2003 by a man named Christopher Poole, who was 15 when he made the site. After creating it he went to other forum websites and advertised it as a place to talk about interests they shared mostly anime and manga. Near the end of that year some anime-related board were added with inappropriate concepts but were all deleted after Poole got threats of people planning to get the law involved.
Probably the worst part of all of it is that 4chan gives you the option to post something anonymously. People took advantage of this and started to post unsettling things, someone going as far as posting a freshly killed dead body and pornography. However most people posting these things were never caught.
Later on people starting posting boards of non anime-related things like sports, fashion, video games, and even weapons. The website later began being known for meme-culture but still includes things that are not appropriate for children and sometimes starts controversy for possibly offensive jokes, threats of violence, racism, and harassment.
Overall 4chan is not made for kids, yes the website has improved but it still contains so much stuff that is toxic and extremely inappropriate. Children should not be allowed on this website and I would advise to avoid it.

In Italy, he fell in love with a nun and soon abducted her and the two of them fled to get married.
Goya soon went back to Madrid where he worked more on tapestries.
Soon, Francisco Goya was appointed court painter for Charles IV in 1789 and the following year he became First Court Painter. Goya painted portraits of the king and queen, the Spanish Prime Minister, and many more nobles.
Goya earned commissions from the highest ranks of Spanish nobility and in 1801, Goya painted Godoy in a commission to commemorate the victory of the brief war with Portugal.
For many years, Goya was commissioned to paint many pictures of the Spanish nobility. He painted pictures such as Charles IV of Spain and His Family in 1800, The Family of the Infante Don Luis in 1784, and the Portrait of Manuel Godoy in 1801.
Upon the return of King Ferdinand VII, though, Goya fell out of favor with royalty.

Rag dolls have been popular toys foe many years. Unlike porcelain, they do not shatter when dropped. Rag dolls were introduced during the American Colonial period-1630 to 1732. Before soft fabric wax and other unpleasant materials were used to make dolls.
Rag dolls were the Colonial period because many family's had fabric and soft materials because they needed them for clothes, but fabric could also be used to make the rag dolls that children used for play.
The rag dolls were money-savers. Instead of going to the store to buy an expensive doll, mothers would save scrap material from other projects and then used to create the rag dolls.
The rag dolls were made from cloth fabric for the body, the dress, and the apron. Lace, string, and yarn were used for the hair. The dolls face was usually painted on by the children or just left plain.
Overall, rag dolls were benefits for the children because that would keep them occupied; and the family itself because they were great money-savers.
Voodoo dolls originated from Africa and south America, but the place were voodoo dolls were most commonly known and used was during the witch trials in England.
The voodoo dolls were used to inflict pain on the witches captures.
It is also heard off for the English to use voodoo dolls on the witches.
Voodoo is a type of dark magic focused on pain an being.
Voodoo is actually used today in new Orleans there is a large focus of voodoo there. Lots of people go to these so called voodoo kings and queens. These people talk to and consult the dead.
Voodoo is a very cool type of magic and i have to say it is probably my favorite type of magic.

Hamilton : An American Musical is a play about,
surprise surprise, Alexander Hamilton. It has 49 songs altogether. It tells how he was the first U.S. Treasurer. It tells the story of his life in song form. These are those songs.
Most Hamilton songs have a connection to one another. Sometimes the connection is in the lyrics, but most of the time, there’s a connection with the beat or music in the background. For example, the first song is called Alexander Hamilton, and that song tells how Alexander had gotten to America, and his life
before that on the islands of Nevis and St. Croix. That song has many of the
connections for the songs from the background music. Another example is that most of the songs have the lyrics “Rise Up”, “Just You Wait” and “I Am Not Throwing Away My Shot”.
There are many different types of dancing that have to do with history and heritage but today I'm going to talk about Irish dance which is a form of dance that originated in Ireland. The main style of the dance is that your feet and legs are doing all the actual dancing and your upper body stays still. The history of doing this is kind of unknown but there are a few theories, like one is that a long time ago Ireland was taken over and all thing enjoyable were banned and that includes dancing so when a guard were to look in your window they couldn't tell that you're dancing. Another idea was that it was disrespectful to raise your arms in the presents of a queen so you would dance with your arms down. Others say it has to do with ancient culture's circle dancing but known of them have really been confirmed. The attire of when your performing are commonly either a dance school vest/dress or depending on the level a solo dress or solo suit. You get a solo dress depending on what level your school says although its normally the third highest level, solo dresses are cool because they can be custom made for you and the design can be literally anything your school approves of and you like. The dress is filled with embroidery designs and crystals, but the dresses cost from $300 all the way to $2000! Other things that you wear during a feis (Irish dance competition) are big curly bun wigs, poodle socks which are long white socks with frills. Gillies which is one of the shoes you dance in and the other shoe is called just "hard shoes" which are kind of like tap shoes, you also wear a hair piece to match you solo dress and a lot of make up. Now lets talk about the levels of Irish dance, there are 6 different types of levels it starts with: beginner one, beginner two, novice, prizewinner, Preliminary champion, and open champion. I'm personally a Preliminary champion and each level has a challenge to move up to the next and all of them have perks and harder dances when you move up. Finally I want to talk about the routine of a lot of dancers. Most dancers dance for about 2-7 times a week though near the time of bigger competitions some dance from 4-7 days. The dance takes a lot of effort and time but i really enjoy it. All in all i think that Irish dance is one of the best forms of dance and you should consider trying it, it could teach you a lot of new skills and help with flexibility, persistence, and teamwork!
On the 25th of August, a two-headed baby timber rattlesnake was found in a forest in New Jersey. The snake was found by enviromentalists from the Herpetological Associates group, who study endagered and threatened reptiles.
The snake was named Double Dave, because it was discovered by Dave Schneider and his colleage Dave Burkett. The viper is 9 inches long and has two fully formed heads, which work independantly.
"It would be pretty hard for this snake to survive in the wild." Dave Schneider said.
He said the snake stiffens when trying to escape, it would have been easy for predators to catch.
Animals with two heads that work independantly rarely survive to maturity, often fighting over which way to move and which head gets to eat first, despite food going to the same digestive track anyways. Because of how vulnrable bicephalic animals are to predators, the Schneider decided to take the young snake back to his office, where he has been caring for the snake for several weeks.
"It appears the head on the right side is the more dominant one," Schneider told ABC News. "But every once in a while, the other head will want to go in a different direction."
Double Dave seems healthy, but Schneider and his colleages want to X-ray the snake to find out wether it has a fully formed digestive track or not.
2,500 year old mummy found
The Mummy is said to be one of the five Priestess of Thoth,
To start off, what is a past life? A past life is a previously lived life in a different body. Some examples are dreams of a past life or unexplained phobias, for example, say you were Anne frank in a past life, in your new life you could have an unexplained fear like being scared of German WW2 uniforms or the sound of marching . Dream wise you can have a dream about writing in a diary or hiding. Now I'm going to explain my story ...
DISCLAMER: I do not support the Nazis in any way, shape or form, same goes for their actions.
In my past life I recall being an SS officer. I vividly remember standing in a room with the black uniform and visor cap. Some unexplained phobias I have are very cold weather with negative temperatures (Stalingrad ) being captured as a POW by the Soviets. Also the idea of being hanged in my past life since that is what happened to most SS officers after WW2. I remember that since early childhood I had attraction to the colors red and black , and then German WW2 history . Some memories I have are meeting important Nazi party members and attending parties with high ranking officials. I think I can use my past life memories to write books about that time period. I also hope to find my friends from my past life. This is a theory once again and you can believe whatever you want.
The Trials of Apollo series is the sequel to Riordan's Heroes of Olympus series.
In the Trials of Apollo, Apollo is punished by Zeus and is stripped of his immortality and sent to Earth. He is sent to live with a daughter of Demeter- goddess of agriculture. Apollo, the daughter of Demeter, and a satyr must find a way to give Apollo immortality again.
Rick Riordan is the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians (Greek mythology), the Heroes of Olympus (Roman and Greek mythology), the Kane Chronicles (Egyptian mythology), Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard (Norse mythology), and-of course-the Trials of Apollo (Roman and Greek) series.
They are all awesome books. Riordan puts incredible detail and they are very adventurous. Trust me, I am a mythology geek and I intend to read all his books-even the extras! I cannot wait until I can read the Tyrant's Tomb!
