Cacti Eating Cows…

Posted in Uncategorized on March 2, 2009 by Itachi

I would avoid getting licked by a cow in arid areas (I don’t want to be pinhead). Lately, cows in arid areas started consuming the Prickly Pear Cactus. Prickly Pear Cacti are really invasive plants that invade really arid areas. The cows are actually restoring the land by eating these cacti. The RAE (Rehabilitation of Arid Environments) researched and studied this strange behaveior and found out that the cows not only eat the cacti, but also tell their cow friends to try it, too!

Nata Primary School AIDS Talk

Posted in Uncategorized on February 20, 2009 by Itachi

On February 4, Peter Martinez was invited to teach the students in Nata Primary School Class Seven about AIDS and the HIV virus. The discussion went very swimmingly other than the children being shy and not wanting to ask questions or commenting about the facts. Don’t we all just get nervous? The children really enjoyed their time with Peter and they asked him if he was able to come again and attend their English Club where he will help them with any problems in English or their homework.

Kenewang Rancholo was Peter’s assistant. His job was to give extra explination to students who did not understand  Peter. Both Peter and Kenewang will come back the following week to explain what are STDs, sexually transmitted deseases, and STIs, sexually transmitted infections.

Why has the US Constitution been in effect for a long time now?

Posted in Uncategorized on January 14, 2009 by Itachi

The US Constitution has been effective for years for 3 reasons. First of all, the Constitution is very strong and thorough. It is also supported by reasonable facts. Second, the US Constitution has no loopholes. You can try to look for a way to beat the law, but you will never win. Lastly, the constitution is fair. It has rights for everyone. Everybody has the same privileges and restrictions. These were just my opinions, others may see the US Constitution differently.
