The creature that might save lives

In the article of,  “Slime of 300-million-year-old creature may be used for body armor”,  by Allison Barrie, published October 24, 2017, about using slime from an ancient creature, older than dinosaurs, for future military protection. In the depths of the unexplored ocean lives the hagfish which is more than 300 years old dating back centuries before dinosaurs went extinct. In order to protect themselves they release slime, which combined with seawater will rapidly enlarge and creates huge volumes of the substance, will cause the unwanted organism to suffocate.

In the past years scientists have pursued spider silks as a possibility to create ultra lightweight and durable body armor. Hagfish is not as strong and light as the spider silk, but easier to harvest  for the mandatory volume for the military to use. It might just be slime but it is incredibly strong with captivating properties with enormous defense potential. Because of the ultrastrong flexible thread, could be the next bullet-proof vest for the military in combat. The Navy team has previously cloned the materials in the slime and can now target on applying fabricated slime for U.S military advantages.  

The use of the slime could possibly be conducted into a spray for divers in case of a shark  attack. It can also function as a coating for ships to avoid algae and barnacles. Someday the product delivered from the hagfish could be use outside of the military. On the motherland, there’s hundreds of opportunities for the use of  slime in case of emergencies or other circumstances, like to protect the firefighters or hack a phone case.  Scientists in the business area have been looking at using slime to substitute lycra, spandex, and nylon in frequently worn clothing and fabrics.

The idea of a snake-like creature producing a residue that could perhaps be conducted into a bullet-proof vest or help a scuba diver in the face of danger by a shark is impeccable. It’s alluring that scientist has the knowledge to create a clone of the materials to either make a larger supply of the slime or even advance the capability of what the slime can do. In my opinion, the heros of the United States of America is the military, cops, fireman, etc. and the hope of something better to protect them is satisfying.  

It’s sometimes necessary to take a chance in life to improve the circumstances that you may be in. In this instance, scientists are taking a chance on hagfishes slime to make exceptional bullet-proof vests for the military’s protection.. Thinking outside of the box will give them bigger opportunities for unthinkable but extraordinary ideas and creations. The hope that something new will likely save lives and going through with it, is called taking a chance. Because you believe in it so much, you refuse to give up.

Donald Trump mocking North Korea

In the “UN speech: Trump says ‘Rocket Man’ Kim Jong Un on ‘suicide mission,’ in broadside at ‘rogue regimes’” by Alex Pappas, Fox news,  Donald Trump made a comment to the 193-member U.N. General Assembly, “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime,” using a mocking nickname for North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un. The crisis even more worsened than the last  month when the North announced plans to test missiles around the United States Pacific territory of Guam. North Korea made its longest ever test flight of a ballistic missile Friday, sending an midway range weapon hurtling over United States  ally,  Japan into the northern Pacific Ocean in a launch that signals both boldness of its rivals and a big technological advance.  Washington has repeatedly warned North Korea over its weapons tests, which violate UN Security Council resolutions.

President Donald Trump delivered Tuesday a day of reckoning warning to North Korea and mocked its young leader, a aggressive growth in a debut address to the United Nations, the world’s foremost diplomatic body.In addition to North Korea, the president specifically targeted what he called  “small group of rogue regimes” including Iran and Syria, that pose many threats around the world.  Trump contended that “Rocket Man” ,  his recently nickname for North Korean dictator, threatens an “unthinkable loss of human life” by ensuring nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles. Trump also pointed the finger to Iran, calling them  “another reckless regime, one that speaks openly of mass murder, vowing death to America, destruction to Israel and ruin for many leaders and nations in this room.”

In conclusion, the article relates to life or death survival. It shows that no matter what happens we have to survive.  In fact, Donald Trump said “If the United States is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea. The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea,” his address to the UN General Assembly. So if North Korea goes on the wrong path for themselves we will sooner than later pull the trigger.

When any missile is launched,  it produces a plume and heat signature that is quickly picked up by the U.S. military satellites. Nearly immediately the information is transferred to the North American Aerospace Defense Command, other known as NORAD, which also controls the military’s nuclear forces. Karako says both NORAD and U.S. Strategic Command quickly assess where the missile is going and decide whether it is a threat to the United States or our  allies or any U.S. military forces in the region. At this point, we will know when they fire the missile and hopefully in time determine where it’s going to land.  All things considered, we have the capability to prevent thousands and thousands of death by warning them to take shelter or what I would do is take a next plane out of there.

This article caught my attention because if one wrong move the world could suffer. North Korea’s missile has grew over the decades from boorish battery rockets copied  by World War II designs in  testing of what it says are long-range missiles that may be able to strike targets in the United States. On  July 28, 2017, North Korea carried out its second and latest ICBM test, with the missile reaching an altitude of  3,000km and landing in the sea by Japan. As a matter of fact, it’s interesting and concerning because he could go wild and start missile parts of the United states with the stuff he has. This whole situation relates to everyone in the whole world. If the United States is under attack all of our allies will come and help, hopefully. Or if it was the other way around. Therefore, causing World War III……

One small step

My life is a bumpy road, there’s so many rocks in my way I can’t get through but for some odd reason I sometimes pass them.  I’m not a big fan of detail but in this case I kinda I have to.  I really hate admitting this but writing does help getting your feelings out, God knows I need to. It’s better to start now than later because sooner or later it will eat you up.  And maybe already has.  So here we go. When I was seven years old my parents got divorced and it was really hard for me.  For some reason my brother wasn’t really there for me.  Not physically but emotionally.  Sometimes I think he doesn’t really love me but I wouldn’t know because he never talks to me. Me and my mom have a lot of differences.  Every day when I was little we always fight and now I’m grown-up and I regret it.  I look back now and fighting with my mom was really one of my biggest regrets of my life and I’m only 13.  I do and will always love my mom and I hope she knows that.  Now me and my dad we have a good relationship, like best friends.  I will do anything for him and I know he will do anything for me. One day I’ll write more but in these case I’m going to stop here.


In math class we had to do a project over what we wanted to do in the future. And you have to pick out what career you want to do, want car you want, and what apartment you want, and here is my PROJECT!…….
