Zombie vs Vampire vs Werewolf

We often heard about zombie, vampire, and werewolf since our childhood. We watched them on television, movies, games and etc. Some people truly believe in all these creatures. Somehow, we would believe it unless there is a true story behind it. Believe me, I almost wanted to stay away from these craps but I found some evidence of these creatures. I present you:

1. Zombie

Zombies originally hail from Haiti. Voodoo sorcerers (or bokors) from the Caribbean are believed to be able to revive the dead with magic potions, powders and incantations. Another popular way to zombify a human is to introduce a powerful psychoactive drug into the bloodstream of the living. In both cases, the Zombie in question becomes an obedient slave to the spellcaster.

Zombies are the undead that are animated, sometimes using voodoo. They eat brains and some times flesh. Zombies are slow, the fastest one can speed-stumble but uncoordinated. They can use basic tools, like rocks or knives, sometimes guns. Zombies are commonly found in groups and hate being on fire. Being bitten from a zombie can cause eventual death and turn you into a zombie. Anyone who dies in an area near zombies will turn into one. Cremating the recently dead will stop them from rising again, so burn those zombies.

Real Zombie

Clairvius Narcisse

Clairvius Narcisse was a Haitian man who was declared dead on May 2, 1962. His two sisters, Marie Claire and Angelina, buried him in a small cemetery near his hometown. 18 years pass and his family has carried on with their lives. Angelina is in the marketplace of her village when her deceased brother approaches her and introduces himself.

2. Vampire

Vampire is a reanimated corpse that is believed to rise from the grave at night to suck the blood of sleeping people, usually causing their death. The Vampyreverse overlaps our own universe, and an understanding of vampire pathology, psychology and history is a first step to winning a war that has lasted for centuries. Until very recently, the vampyr has sought to survive and thrive with the knowledge that all our understanding was based on myth, legend, and old wives tales in equal measure. Now, we have science. We can confirm the myths, expose the legends, and have the decency to thank the old wives, who were usually right.

Real Vampire

Female vampire with a brick forced into her jaw

In 2006, archaeologists in Italy had a unique vampire sighting of their own; they discovered the very real remains of a female vampire with a brick forced into her jaw. Italian forensic archaeologist Matteo Borrini reported the find to National Geographic and other news outlets when the discovery took place. Researchers were investigating a 1576 mass grave of medieval plague victims of the Venetian plague at the time of the discovery.

3. Werewolf

Werewolves are called Lycans – Lycanthropes. A person can become a werewolf by being born a werewolf, bitten by a werewolf, cursed by someone you have wronged in some way, and being given the power threw sorcery. The curse can never be broken, no matter what some people or beliefs may state. Silver will not kill a werewolf, although it will cause pain and discomfort. All werewolves can communicate threw a form of telepathy which enables them to hunt and perform more efficiently.

Werewolves are virtually immortal because of the constant regeneration of their physical tissue, making their true age somewhat difficult to determine. If you are bitten and you kill the werewolf you WILL NOT be free from the curse, the curse is like a virus or rabies, if you get bitten by an animal that has rabies you get rabies, and if you kill the animal that gave you rabies you will not be cured. You still have the virus. A werewolf can be killed by any wound that completely destroys the heart or the brain, but decapitation is the most effective way. A werewolf can change his form and shape shift at will whenever he wants to, at day or night. Although newly turned werewolves are sometimes forced to change by certain aspects of the lunar cycles or certain sounds such as the howling of another werewolf.

Real Werewolf

Based on true story

The most famous U.S. case of multiple sightings was in Wisconsin, in a case that has become known as “The Bray Road Beast”. In Southeastern Wisconsin on October 31, 1999, Doristine Gipson struck something as she was traveling along Bray Road one night near the town of Delavan. While searching for the animal she believed she had struck, she spotted a large hairy beast racing toward her. She jumped in the car and barely escaped.

Animals – The Smartest and The Dumbest

Animals can be very gentle and also very dangerous to human kind. Somehow, we often neglected the fact that they have brains. Their intelligence may caught certain people only and often we will say all animals are dumb because of their odd behaviors. Now, we have the opportunity to get to know which animal is the smartest and also the dumbest one.

The Smartest

1. Crow

Can invent tools

In experiments, the clever birds were observed using twigs and wires to snatch food from hard-to-reach places.

2. Octopus

Builder and cheeky thief

Using rocks to build homes in crevices along the ocean floor. The eight-legged eggheads also have a reputation for mischief, as one researcher learned when he captured one on video sneaking out in the middle of the night to feast on nearby fish, then returning to its tank as if nothing had ever happened.

3. Chimpanzee

Invent tools and transfer learned behaviors to others

“Washoe” surprised many scientists when she began to acquire sign language. Before her death , it is believed that she learned to use about 250 signs. “Kanzi” is another ape that has shown a prodigious knack for gab. The 27-year-old bonobo picked up language as an infant by watching scientists attempt unsuccessfully to teach his mother to communicate through keyboard symbols. Kanzi used the keyboard to ask researchers for matches and marshmallows. With the items in hand, he prepared a campfire and toasted the marshmallows on a stick.

4. African Gray Parrot

Ability to recognize and communicate the various qualities of an object

The prodigal parrot could name more than 50 objects and draw upon 150 words. Alex showcased his talents on TV programs such as Scientific American Frontiers, where he was presented with a piece of cloth and asked to describe what material it was made from. “Wool,” he would emphatically answer, after feeling the fabric with his beak.

5. Border Collie

Possessed a vocabulary of more than 200 words

To prove his uncanny ability, Rico underwent tests in which he was asked to retrieve toys by name. Not only did he get it right 37 out of 40 times, he also recalled the name of objects four weeks later. Investigators also found that Rico could pick up new words fairly quickly.

The Dumbest

It’s hard to determine how dumb an animal is, because animals may show their intelligence in ways that we don’t recognize. Yet, we can still recognize their ability to do something useful. But to make something dumb, we have no right to judge them. It could be useful to them (animal) but looks odd in our eyes.

But if the size of an animal’s brain in relation to the size of its body is any sign of intelligence, then the stupidest animal that ever lived was probably the dinosaur called stegosaurus. This huge reptile weighed some 13,000 pounds, yet had a brain that weighed only about 21/2 ounces!

A sperm whale 50 feet long would have a brain weighing about 20 pounds, while an adult elephant’s brain weighs about 10 pounds. A gorilla’s brain weighs about 20 ounces, and an adult person’s brain usually weighs around 3 pounds.

Your brain probably weighs more than 15 times as much as the brain of the huge stegosaurus.

Quotes For Teachers

Motivational quotes or sayings are very useful to give teachers some “power” and motivation to teach in the classroom. As a teacher-to-be, I used to read a few of motivational quotes or sayings that give me the energy to become a good and dependable teacher soon. Below are the quotes that I like:

Teacher

  • I like a teacher who gives you something to take home to think about besides homework.  ~Lily Tomlin as “Edith Ann”
  • The dream begins with a teacher who believes in you, who tugs and pushes and leads you to the next plateau, sometimes poking you with a sharp stick called “truth.”  ~Dan Rather
  • A teacher is one who makes himself progressively unnecessary. ~Thomas Carruthers
  • A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.  ~Horace Mann
  • Most teachers have little control over school policy or curriculum or choice of texts or special placement of students, but most have a great deal of autonomy inside the classroom.  To a degree shared by only a few other occupations, such as police work, public education rests precariously on the skill and virtue of the people at the bottom of the institutional pyramid.  ~Tracy Kidder
  • A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.  ~Henry Brooks Adams
  • A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.  ~Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, translated from Turkish
  • A good teacher is a master of simplification and an enemy of simplism.  ~Louis A. Berman
  • Good teachers are costly, but bad teachers cost more.  ~Bob Talbert
  • The mediocre teacher tells.  The good teacher explains.  The superior teacher demonstrates.  The great teacher inspires.  ~William Arthur Ward
  • The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.  ~Edward Bulwer-Lytton
  • What the teacher is, is more important than what he teaches.  ~Karl Menninger
  • A cross-eyed teacher can keep twice the number of children in order than any other, because the pupils do not know who she’s looking at.  ~Four Hundred Laughs: Or, Fun Without Vulgarity, compiled and edited by John R. Kemble, 1902
  • Teaching is leaving a vestige of one self in the development of another.  And surely the student is a bank where you can deposit your most precious treasures.  ~Eugene P. Bertin
  • One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings.  The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.  ~Carl Jung
  • The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind.  ~Kahlil Gibran
  • The task of the excellent teacher is to stimulate “apparently ordinary” people to unusual effort.  The tough problem is not in identifying winners:  it is in making winners out of ordinary people.  ~K. Patricia Cross
  • When you teach your son, you teach your son’s son.  ~The Talmud
  • The average teacher explains complexity; the gifted teacher reveals simplicity.  ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com
  • Who dares to teach must never cease to learn.  ~John Cotton Dana
  • To teach is to learn twice.  ~Joseph Joubert, Pensées, 1842
  • Don’t try to fix the students, fix ourselves first.  The good teacher makes the poor student good and the good student superior.  When our students fail, we, as teachers, too, have failed.  ~Marva Collins
  • The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without his teacher.  ~Elbert Hubbard
  • Teachers are expected to reach unattainable goals with inadequate tools.  The miracle is that at times they accomplish this impossible task.  ~Haim G. Ginott
  • The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery.  ~Mark Van Doren
  • The only reason I always try to meet and know the parents better is because it helps me to forgive their children.  ~Louis Johannot
  • Ideal teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross, then having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create bridges of their own. ~Nikos Kazantzakis
  • Learning is finding out what we already know. Doing is demonstrating that you know it. Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you. You are all learners, doers, and teachers. ~Richard Bach
  • Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of becoming. ~Goethe
  • Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement, nothing can be done without hope and confidence. ~Helen Keller
  • Once children learn how to learn, nothing is going to narrow their mind. The essence of teaching is to make learning contagious, to have one idea spark another. ~Marva Collins
  • Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become your actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny. ~Frank Outlaw
  • Good teaching is more a giving of right questions than a giving of right answers. ~Josef Albers
  • Your role as a leader is even more important than you might imagine. You have the power to help people become winners. ~Ken Blanchard
  • Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, you can achieve. ~Mary Kay Ash
  • There are two kinds of people; those who do the work and those who take the credit. Try to be in the first group; there is less competition there. ~Indira Gandhi

My Cat, My Pet

A cat is often being a close companion to human. It’s adorable and gentle behaviour makes a cat a very classy and a good friend to human too. I used to have a cat which I got it from my aunt. He was white and has some black spots on his body.

On the day we picked him up, my mom gave a name Chicky to him. Meanwhile, I suggested to give him another name which was Chicarito (a Manchester United player). Since it is hard to call him with Chicarito, so we stick to Chicky.

Chicky is a very gentle and lovely cat and we love him as part of the family. We treated him like a human. Food, shelter, blanket (my mom made it), and shower for almost once in every three days. In short, we really really love him. We never make a cat as our pet, so he is the first cat in my family. He used to bite me and the scars still on my hands. But, I never wanted to harm him as he did.

After I left my home to further my study, my mom and dad took care of him. But now, he is dead. I can’t imagine how he died and I don’t wanna know. So, for those of you who has cat at home, love him/her as we did.

IN MEMORY OF CHICKY

Rest In Peace
