The Pan-American Highway Project recently unearthed a bunch of old bones, which were initially found by construction workers. The bones were turned over to scientists, who discovered that the large bones were part of the skeletons of over 40 marine animals. The bones belonged to animals like seals, aquatic sloths, and even an extinct species of sperm whales. These creatures are thought to have been killed off nearly 10,000 years ago.

There is a common misconception about the field of paleontology. Many people believe it’s boring, that it’s irrelevant, and that it’s even a waste of time. However, as award winning paleontologist and author Neil Shubin argues in his novel, Your Inner Fish, the field of paleontology has the potential to change the way we view our bodies. Shubin rose to fame in the mid ‘00s after discovering a brand new fossil on the coast of Ellesmere Island. This fossil was of a creature that was part land animal and part fish, containing the flat head and joints of a land animal and the fins and webbing of a fish.
Albert Einstein once assured, “If I were to remain silent, I’d be guilty of complicity” Never remain silent, never become guilty of something you have never done. In effect, this shows how you have to stand up taller when knocked down. Become yourself and feel the power you can demand. Joan Bauer’s realistic fiction novel, The Truth About Sharks, introduces us to such a character. The protagonist, Beth needed an outfit for a party later that evening.
“Kept in a bowl, the goldfish will remain small. With more space, the fish can grow double, triple, or quadruple its size.” This phrase inspired Edward Bloom (Big Fish) to leave his hometown to explore the big city. While goldfish size depends on water quality and availability of food, goldfish are indeterminate growers, meaning they do not stop growing until they die. While I have stopped growing physically, my desire to learn never will.
About 3 or 4 years ago my two cousins and I went deep sea fishing with are dads. We went so far off the coast of Florida you couldn’t see land at all.

I watched the movie, scene by scene, frame by frame, rewinding, forwarding, unable to believe my eyes. I witnessed my own murder. The camera caught Susan or Tracy or whatever her name was, tying me up. I looked so foolish, the beatific smile on my face was sickening. I felt like throwing up.
Title Researchers and scientists have constructed extensive research on dinosaur’s extinction. Speculation instead of real evidence seems common in most theories about the dinosaurs’ extinction. However, Jay Gould’s essay “Sex, Drugs, and the Extinction of Dinosaurs” is the complete opposite of speculation over evidence. Rather, Gould uses the mix of persuasive techniques, such as rhetorical questions, logos, along with profound evidence to not only disapprove of other theories but convince readers of his place on the dinosaur’s extinction.

As it got closer I suddenly realized that it was several otters! We crawled closer to the water to get a better view, but they saw us and quickly dove under the water leaving behind nothing but a few bubbles. I was quite surprised that we had seen them as I didn’t even know that otters lived in our area, but we were also curious about what kinds of otters they were. After a few minutes we decided to walk around the island and explore. It turned out that there was nothing particularly exiting on the island
I pulled back and had the fish hooked. I knew it had to be a big fish because it was hard to reel in. After about 25 or 30 minutes the fish was almost at the doc. Then I started to pull it out of the water and that’s when I realized it was a shark. The shark was about two feet long and weighed 45 pounds.
