Duck Duck Go!

Watch out Google there's a new search engine in town! The new search engine is called Duck Duck Go! Kind of like the game duck duck goose, except search engineized. Is that a word? Probably not. Oh well. This search engine is unique because it is paired up with Wikipedia. Wikipedia as we all know is full of user content. Maybe not the most trustworthy site, but it does have some good information. You just have to know how to find it. Anyway, when you are searching for something on Duck Duck Go you can get a blurb from Wikipedia on the subject with some websites about your subject.

Bands with a Unique Sound

Okay, so who doesn't love music? I love music, probably a little too much. You hear about many different bands on a daily basis. Bands such as, Nickleback, The Fray, Paramore, Boys like Girls, and many others. Do you hear bands such as Flogging Molly or Making April? Did you know that Making April released a new album earlier this year? Probably not unless you have heard about them before. Unfortunately, I haven't heard their new album as of yet, but my friend has and says it's amazing.

This is a picture of Flogging Molly. They're an Irish punk band with loads of instruments. To learn more about Flogging Molly, Making April, Paramore, and The Fray please click here to read Bands with a Unique Sound.

This article is an overview about the bands. It includes pictures, one music video, a brief history, and a little of the band's music. Please enjoy!! And if you have any bands that you believe are truly unique please comment!

Soil Erosion

Last Year I had to write a paper and do a presentation on soil erosion. The subject, which you probably figured out at first glance, isn't all that exciting to talk about. The thing is, the more I read on the subject the more I got scared about it.

For example, did you know that because of rain fall soil erodes along the coast taking away land mass? Or that it takes almost forever for new soil to form?
