MAMMOTHS

MAMMOTHS

The mammoths were  long curved tusks and, a covering of long hair. Heights of at least 5 meters. Mammoths would probably normally weigh in the region of 6 to 8 tonnes, but large males may have exceeded 12 tonnes.

Megatherium - By: Manel Paret Espadaler

Megatherium - By: Manel Paret Espadaler

 

The Megatherium was a huge, bulky and slow-moving mammal. It had peg-like teeth, powerful jaws, short tail and three hook-like claws on each foot. It was a quadruped, and it was an herbivore. This ice-age mammal was the largest of the ground sloths. Its name means "great beast”, and he was named by the palaeontologist Richard Owen in 1856. We think that it lived in Brazil or near Brazil, because the first fossil of this animal was found  there, and probably, it lived during the Pleistocene epoch in South America. It went extinct about 11,000 years ago.

 

 

THE SMILODON, by Jana Rius Cabré E1E

THE SMILODON, by Jana Rius Cabré E1E

It was a fierce predator about 1.2-1.5 m long and 0.9 m tall. It weighed about 200 kg and it was probably brown (the same colour that the actually lions).

It had four short legs and a small tail. It also had two huge and big canines and powerful jaws. Smilodon was a carnivore, it ate meat.

Smilodon was the largest saber-toothed cat. It first appeared about 1.6 million years ago and lived in North and South America. It went extinct 11.000 years ago. The smilodon lived during the last ice age on the Earth.

Most probably, they became extinct because people hunted them and because the ige age killed  them off.

The Quagga, by Irene Tineo Peiró, E1E

The Quagga, by Irene Tineo Peiró, E1E

The Quagga was a type of zebra extinct in the 1880’s. The last Quagga died in captivity in tha Amsterdam Zoo on august 12, 1883. It was extinct because it was ruthless hunted down for meat by African farmers.

The Quagga had a little bit of yellowis-brown fur with sripes in the coat, neck and head. It had hoofed feet and a long upright, black and white mane. It eyes and ears helpeds the Quagga detect predators. It was a fast runner, ’cause it had long legs. It was about 53 inches high and weighed from 500-700 pounds.

Quaggas were herbivores who ate grasses. They were nomadic and spent most of their time grazing.

The Quagga lived in the drier parts of South Africa, on grassy plains. The northern limit seems to have been the Orange River in the west and the Vaal River in the east; the south-eastern border may have been the Great Kei River.

 

THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Clara Giménez Arteaga

THE TASMANIAN TIGER by Clara Giménez Arteaga

The Thylacine was the largest known carnivorous marsupial of modern times. Native to continental Australia, Tasmania and New Guinea, it is thought to have become extinct in the 20th century. It is commonly known as the Tasmanian Tiger (because of its striped back).

Description: The Tasmanian Tiger was 1,8 metres long. It had light brown fur with a series of black stripes along the black from the base of the tail almost to the shoulders. The tail was long and stiff; it could not wag like the tail of a dog. The skull was large and its jaws could open 120 degrees, wider than any other mammal.

Habitat and extinction: The Tasmanian Tiger lived in dry eucalyptus forests, wetlands, and grasslands in continental Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea. It went extinct in mainland Australia about 2,000 years ago due to competition from dingoes. In Tasmania, the Tasmanian Tiger went extinct in 1936 after being killed in large numbers by sheep farmers who settled in Tasmania.The last known Tasmanian Tiger, named Benjamin, died in captivity at the Hobart Zoo. Despite its supposed extinction, there are a few unconfirmed Tasmanian Tiger sightings each year in Tasmania.

Life in my grandparents' time by Clara Giménez Arteaga

My grandparents lived in a little village, in Navarra. Their house was big, and near the house there was a vegetable garden and near that there was a hen house, both property of my grandparents. The house wasn’t old, it was wide and tall. The kitchen was rudimentary, because it that time there weren’t fridges " No frost ", and also there weren’t microwaves and ovens. The bedrooms were the tipical old rooms with cumbersone decoration and without TV!!! And they also couldn’t have vacuum cleaners, and all of the appliances that now clean our houses or cook the dinner alone. Its obviously that now our houses are better!!!

LIFE IN MY GRANDPARENTS' TIME, by Irene Tineo

 

Yesterday, I called my grandmother, and she explained me something to me about her house in the 40’s. She was born in a house. She lived in Los Alcázares, in Múrcia, in a little village with her 3 brothers, her 2 sisters and her parents. Also, her cousin was living with she for a few time. There, they were working on the field, growing lemons and oranges. Her mother staied at home until all the family arrive with the food. She was not going to school, but she said me that my grandphader sudied a little bit until he was 11 years old.

They had to work a lot to get some money, and then, to eat. In their house, they had not any computer, any dishwasher, any microwave... but they could live without all this machines. She said me, that when my mother was born, in her neighborhood, they only had a radio, and they and the rest of the neighbors meet in a square for listen it. They had to wash their clothes in a big laundry in the centre of the village. They had not a car, so they had to walk and load all the lemons with big baskets.

My Grandfather lived in Esparreguera in a big and old house.The floor of the house was made out of stones and they had a big yard where there was a garden.

In the house there was a bucket, a stove, a big candle, a fireplace, a radio, a broom and next to the house, there was well. In the house there wasn’t a TV set, a computer, a vacuum cleaner, heating a washer and also there wasn’t a microwave.

They travelled walking and by train but they didn’t travel very often.

My Grandfather didn’t go to primary school, only at secundary school and at the University because his mother was a teacher and she did classes to all her children.

CLIMATE CHANGE

The world is hot. The peoples are the creation of this problem.The problem is when we no reciclate or throw dirt in soil. The medium temperature of the Earth depends of solar radiation it receives. Ocean currents, or sea currents, softened temperatures of regions. Scientists say that if in the future continue therefore, the human species could be extinguished.

If we do not want that the human species is extinguished we deliver an attack and demonstrate that really we do not want that it passes that.

 

  • We must recycle
  • We mustn’t throwing
  • We can’t use the minium possible water
  • We mustn’t use the car

As you know, we are in a dificuld situation: the Earth's temperature is going up.

But that is not just a political problem, it is also our fault, for

example, when we use cars, motorbikes, buses . . . we pollute the air too.

Politician, of course, have a part of the fault, because they make money

selling oils and fuels.

But now, talk about what do we must do, mustn't and can do:

WE MUST:

  • Turn down the heating in winter and wear more clothes if we are cold
  • Turn the air conditioning in summer or use a fan

WE MUSTN'T:

  • Use plastic bags when we go to the shop
  • Use the car if we can go walking

WE CAN:

  • Don't use the own transport if we can use the public transport
  • Recycle, reduce and reuse

We have to save our planet!

We have to save our planet!

The Earth is hotting up, and the greenhouse effect is doing that a lot of species of plants and animals disappear. We can be like now, pollution the air and contamination the nature for many years...

Hotting up: The sun is getting hotter. And the Earth’s climate seems to be heating up much much faster than can be explained by the sun making more heat. And the reason seems to be the people and it machines.Almost all machines use oil, gas or coal. All of them produce pollution becaus ethey produce a gas called carbon dioxide. This gas seems to be the main cause of the trouble.

Greenhouse effect: The glass in the greenhouse traps the heat from the sun. The carbon dioxide does the same in the earth’s atmosphere. It acts doing the same. The carbon dioxide leave that the solar radiations cross the atmosphere but prevent that those radiations go out of the Earth.

Consequences: The hotting up and the greenhouse effect are doing that the poles of the Earth thaw, and the consequences will be that the cities that are near the sea or under the sea level will be flooded. And also, the climate change favors insects like mosquitoes.

We mustWe mustn’tWe can
Reduce the pollutionUse too much oilsReduce, reuse, recycle
Use public transportsThrow all the waste in the same contenedor Use solar energy and wind power
Reduce the amount of consumptionBuy food importedWalk or ride bikes instead of drive cars

Woody Allen

 

 

 

Woody Allen (born Allen Stewart Konigsberg; December 1, 1935) was an American film director, writer, actor, comedian, musician and

playwright. Woody Allen's distinctive films, which run the gamut from dramas to screwball sex comedies, had made him one of the most respected living American

 directors. He was also distinguished by his rapid rate of production and his very large body of work. Woody

Allen writes and directs his movies and has also acted in the majority of them. For inspiration, Allen draws heavily on literature, sexuality, philosophy, psychology,

Jewish identity, European cinema and New York City, where he was born and has lived his entire life.

Woody Allen was also a jazz clarinetist. What began as a teenage avocation has led to regular public performances at various small venues in his Manhattan

hometown, with occasional appearances at various jazz festivals. Allen joined the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the New Orleans Funeral Ragtime Orchestra in

performances that provided the film score for his 1973 comedy Sleeper, and a rare European tour in 1996 featuring Woody Allen was the subject of the

documentary Wild Man Blues.
