Fire Dept History
Written By: Kristopher Lockard
Fire Department history begins in the early 1600s in the American colonies. The first fire company was started in 1678. They were called the Surveyors of Buildings and they would patrol the streets at night to make sure there was no fire. They were always ready to sound the alarm and use the leather buckets, hooks, and small leaders. Everything starts somewhere. However, I would not want this old-fashioned department because we have gotten much better since then. We have much better equipment these days.

Sleep Away Your Wounds
Written By: Andrea Ren
A good night’s sleep will help you stay alert, boost your memory, and improve your mood. Getting a good night’s sleep will also help your body’s wounds heal faster. Sleep is more important than good nutrition in speeding wound healing. Scientists had hoped to show that giving people a nutritional boost would make their skin’s wounds heal faster (even in people who were sleep-deprived). They thought it would work because good nutrition keeps the body’s immune system strong.The immune system helps repair injuries and guards against infections. Tracy Smith and her team studied three groups of healthy people who came to their laboratory to take part in the tests. They gave each recruit small skin wounds. Applying gentle suctions on their forearms, they created blisters. Then they removed the tops of these blisters (The procedure does not hurt, although it can be itchy, Smith says).
One group of 16 volunteers got a normal amount of sleep (seven to nine hours a night). The other two groups of 20 people each were kept sleep deprived. They got only two hours of sleep a night, for three nights in a row. To stay awake, the volunteers were asked to do things such as walk, play video games, watch TV, sit on an excise ball or play ping-pong. Throughout the experiment, one of the sleep-deprived groups got a nutritional drink with extra protein and vitamins. The other group got a placebo drink that looked and tasted the same, but had no extra nutrition. People who slept normally healed in about 4.2 days. The sleep-deprived volunteers took about 5 days to heal.
Scientists sampled fluid from the wounds, and the group that drank the nutritional supplement did show a stronger immune response at the wound. But that did not speed up the healing.

There are many RC brands, but how do you know which to buy? Traxxas is known as the fastest RC brand. They have boats,trucks,drones and cars. Another good RC brand is Axil. They make rock crawlers and dune trucks. If you have never driven an RC car or truck, Nikko is a good brand for you, especially if you like boats. Traxxas and Nikko are good boat brands. If you like trucks then Traxxas, Nikko and Axial are good RC truck brands.
All RC vehicles can be modified. If you want to put in a brushless motor, it will make your truck run smoother and faster. RC boats will sometimes have thin plastic hulls and if the motor gets hot, it will melt the hull and sink it. You will want to put on a smaller motor so it does not get hot. That is a short paragraph on RC brands!
