Another story done…or is it?

As you all know I have just announced the end, ‘the story without a name…chapter whatever.’ I left it at a cliff hanger, now you have a choice…to reverse, and drive away or to drive on and see what happens next!

It’s you call! 🙂

Chapter 11. (The final chapter).

 

Silver was hacking into their system. “Silver,” Shadow hissed. “Speed it up!”

“I passing the last fire wall, esh, hacking isn’t easy, Shadow,” Silver answered. Shadow looked down the hall. Dr. Eggman and two men were coming.

“Well, tell that to them,” he warned. Silver looked…and he cursed.

“Done! Let’s go,” he said.

“Chaos Control!” They appeared were Shadow had left Tails. “Silver, take Tails and go to Knothole. Tails, Silver may faint, be ready.” Shadow ordered. “Go! No arguments.” Silver sighed. The two headed for Knothole.


A alarm went off. “CATCH THOSE HEDGEHOGS!” The president’s voice boomed. Every one jumped into a vehicle and started the engines.

“On you marks…get set… …go!” Sonic laughed. They ran slow so they would keep following. The president was in the first one. They gave each other high fives. They started to speed up. The president was yelling hysterically. (The vehicles were small, quick turning, and fast). Winter and Sonic zigged and zagged between trees and each other. They were getting closer to the portal.

“Got it?” Winter asked.

“Yeah. You?”

She held up a blue Chaos Emerald. “Remember, in, out, then we do it,” she reminded. He nodded. They were now running at full speed.

“Don’t lose them!” The president ordered. Shadow appeared beside them.

“Don’t think I’m gonna let you two have all the fun,” he said. Sonic smiled. They ran through the portal, but something went wrong…it always does.

The end! 

Chapter 10.

(Another story coming to an end! There is just one chapter after this!)

They were all preparing for the fight of their lives. No one spoke a word once 3 feet from the clear. Winter gave them the down and quiet signal. She and Silver were hiding behind bushes. Silver was watching their 6, and Winter their 12. Sonic looked around. Shadow tapped him on the shoulder, pointing. ‘Tails!’ Sonic thought. Everyone else seemed to have seen him as well. (If you are wondering, no. Cream, and Vanilla aren’t with them).


Tails looked around. The sun was high in the sky. Mr. Rocket and Dr. Mac were talking. The president was yelling at Eggman. The men were scouting the perimeter.


Shadow turned the Chaos Emerald in his hand. Sonic pushed him down. “Get off me!” He growled. Sonic put his finger to his lips. Two men walked by.


“Ha! Mr. President, it’s time,” Eggman announced, pointing at the tree line. The president smiled.

“Open fire!” He commanded.

“On what, sir?” Liz asked. “There is nothing there.”

“Shoot along the tree line,” he answered.


They all shielded themselves behind the trees. “They know we’re here!” Knuckles yelled.

“No, ya think?!” Amy answered.

“Shadow! Chaos Control now!” Winter yelled. “Get Tails out of there!”

“Chaos Control!”

“Shadow, boy am I glad to see you,” Tails said quietly, and with glee.

“Yeah. We can catch up later, now grab my hand…Chaos Control!” He responded. The two appeared  2 feet from the tree line. Shadow put Tails down behind some bushes and told him to stay put. Tails nodded, as Shadow dashed off.


“We need to lead them back to the portal! If they enter it quickly enough it might collapse!” Silver yelled over the sounds of the guns.

“How?!” Knuckles yelled back.

“Well, they want us, don’t they?” Amy replied. The shooting stopped.

“Come out, or else,” the president called. Winter nodded. Amy, Knuckles and Rogue started toward the portal. Winter and Sonic were buy them more time, (since they’re are faster). Silver was waiting for Shadow, so they could go behind enemy lines.

“What took you so long?” He whispered when he saw Shadow.

“Yes, Silver, Tails is safe. Now what?”

Silver pointed behind enemy lines. Shadow grinned. “This’ll be fun.”

Do Playing With Guns at a Young Age make kids Violent?

On average 32 Americans are killed by a gun in one day, this is a big problem. But then we buy our children BB gun, non-powder guns, and shooting games! This, from childhood fills their head with shooting as a game. They are running around, in real life or in the games, looking for someone, or something to shoot at, the idea being to kill as many living things as possible. Some people make the mistake of treating non-powder guns as toys. But they are really weapons! From 1990 to 2000, U.S Consumers Product Safety Commission reported 39 non-powder gun related deaths. Toy guns and shooting games should be out-lawed.

Non-powder guns, including BB, air and pellet guns, are inherently dangerous weapons that can inflict potentially severe or lethal injuries, particularly on children.  According to one study, there are an estimated 3.2 million BB/pellet guns sold in the U.S. each year. (Trends in BB/Pellet Gun Injuries in Children and Teenagers in the United States, at http://injuryprevention.bmj.com/content/8/3/185.full.pdf+html).  Because non-powder guns expel projectiles (usually made of metal or hard plastic) through the force of air pressure, CO2 pressure, or spring action, they are different from firearms, which use gunpowder to generate energy to launch a projectile. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have compiled national data on non-powder gun injuries which illustrate the inherent danger of these weapons. Between 2001 and 2011, non-powder guns injured 209,981 people nationwide, including 145,423 children age 19 or younger. In 2011 alone, 16,451 injuries – including 10,288 injuries to children age 19 and younger – resulted from the use of non-powder guns. (National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at http://webapp.cdc.gov/sasweb/ncipc/nfirates2001.html). According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, BB guns and pellet rifles cause an average of four deaths per year. Because non-powder guns are designed to discharge projectiles, often at high speeds and with significant force, they should not be confused with toy guns. At this point, another question for this matter must be inquired, non-powder guns are not as dangerous as real firearms, are they? Yes, they are. From 1990 to 2000, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported 39 non-powder gun related deaths. At Nationwide Children’s Hospital we have seen multiple serious non-powder gun injuries. Many people make the mistake of treating non-powder guns as toys, but they are actually weapons. They cause serious injury if the proper safety measures are not taken.

Equally important is, the clear and convincing evidence: media violence is 1 of the causal factors of real-life violence and aggression. In July 2000, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) was joined by the American Medical Association, the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and the American Psychological Association in issuing an unprecedented joint statement on the impact of entertainment violence on children.

( www.pediatrics.org/cgi/content/full/119/6/e1398). Also in 2000, the Federal Bureau of Investigation released a report on shootings in schools that stated that media violence is a risk factor. In 2003, a panel of media-violence experts convened by the National Institute of Mental Health, at the request of the US Surgeon General, published its comprehensive report on the effects of media violence on youth, which revealed media violence to be a significant causal factor in aggression and violence. Most recently, in 2007, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its report on violent television programming and its effects on children and agreed with the Surgeon General that there is “strong evidence” that exposure to media violence can increase aggressive behavior in children. (http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-07-50A1.pdf.) The weight of scientific evidence has been convincing to pediatricians, with more than 98% of pediatricians in 1 study expressing the personal belief that media violence affects children’s aggression. Research has associated exposure to media violence with a variety of physical and mental health problems for children and adolescents, including aggressive and violent behavior, bullying, and desensitization to violence, fear, depression, nightmares, and sleep disturbances. Consistent and significant associations between media exposure and increases in aggression and violence have been found in American and cross-cultural studies; in field experiments, laboratory experiments, cross-sectional studies, and longitudinal studies; and with children, adolescents, and young adults. Brad Bushman, social psychologist, the Ohio State University said: “Playing violent video games probably will not turn your child into a psychopathic killer, but I would want to know how the child treats his or her parents, how they treat their siblings, how much compassion they have”.

To wrap it all up, non-powder guns and video games are a topic that generated a lot of controversies today, but something that cannot be denied is, that children get serious injuries and some died at a young age in consequences of the uses of this artifacts treaty like a “toy gun”. Also, the influence of media and shooting videos games is astronomic, opening the minds of the kids to violence and aggression like something normal, without any separation between fiction and reality. The result of this actions are a generation out of control, shooting real people like a game, bullies, and mental problems. 32 Americans shot and killed in one day, but you can help! Contact you elected official, saying you believe BB guns, pellet and non-powder guns shouldn’t be sold in stores, along with the shooting games. Gather up your friends, and start a boycott! You’d be amazed at what a difference you could make.

Edge of Tomorrow. [129/150].

So I just finished watching this movie. It was a pretty good movie.

So the main character, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise), is assigned to film the battle at a beach off London. He tried to blackmail, General Brigham (Brendan Gleeson), and doing so is demoted. Now his is still going on the beach, on a suicide mission and is now, for the first time, placed into combat. He was killed in minutes, but before dyeing he killed a rare Mimic called an Alpha, and is covered in his blood. Now, with the help of Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt) uses his ability to reset the day to find and kill the Omega, which asks like the master computer of the Mimics.

Yeah. The story sound great…but the movie was ok. There were few things that made no sense. This movie didn’t earn it’s PG13 ratting if you ask me. The aliens weren’t scary at all! (Maybe I watch to many Syfy movies).If I recommend it…well…you could watch it but it’s not a must see or anything like that.
