Feelgood news of the day. Remember the awesome Rave at the Grave fundraiser the Rotaract Club had at the end of the Summer? It was to raise funds to give school supplies to primary school kids that needed them. They finally uploaded the pictures from the event. They also loaded pictures from their Haunted House they had at Hode's. Thanks, Rotaract, for brightening the lives of the kids in Cayo. http://bit.ly/YalbacProject http://bit.ly/HorrorHosue

This is just one example of how you can make a difference in the world! These kids, who come form bad house hold family's, where in for a surprise! A bunch of volunteers surprised them with amazing food and simple things that made them happy. They had a fundraiser that was a hunted house. The payment was backpacks! These kids don't have school stuff like back packs! What a good idea!

The prototype has just been completed last month in Cau Dien Town, Tu Liem District, Ha Noi, Vietnam. From a bamboo module, each house is simply assembled with bolting, binding, hanging, placing. The structure is strong enough to withstand 1.5m-high floods.

Via Lauren Moss
Sadie ciotti's insight:
This really shows you how strong bamboo really is!! These house are so creative and look small. But, when you look in the inside and deep, you can see how modern these houses really are! Is they made these houses on the beach or something, it would be such treat! Even though the house is only made for one, it looks like it can be built fast! The people who make these probably could do it fast and make money! These houses also save trees and energy!!

They are also learning a lesson. I think work is a good thing for people in jail to do. They work hard instead of sitting in a jail sell. These are things that people in our world don't do much of anymore! So it's good that people are actually doing this and getting the job done!

I think chemical war far should not be allowed in video games because it kind of tells kids its ok to do this stuff! But on the other hand there are real war heroes that are actually encountering this stuff! If they where actually in war chemical war far would not be fun! These games also kind of tell kids it's ok to shoot people and its fun! Chemical war fare is a awful thing and I don't know who would want to use it! Video games are also so bad for the mind and its bad for your brain!

It's a beautiful world that you need to respect! I think it's cool because they where able to show this by making a beautiful piece of coulter through this! They also got this idea from string!

King tut was such a old piece of History I guess it's hard to research and find stuff like that out! It's interesting to hear people's inferences, and what they think! I think that king tut might have been Throne off a bridge or something because he had Brocken bones and stuff! Maybe because someone wanted his throne! But there are so many options and opinions!
