Winchester Manor


Today I'm going to explain you the real history of the Winchester manor.
To start, the Winchester manor was built in the XIX century in California by Sarah Winchester, William Winchester’s widow. Her husband was the heir of the famous company of rifles that killed a lot of people when they colonized the west.
Some months after her husband’s death, her only little daughter built it. When Sarah lost their family, she went into depression also, she became the heiress of the companies. But the wealth of a thousand dollars a day was no consolation for her soul in pain.
She decided to visit a medium to remedy her bad luck. The medium told her that her family was cursed and that she had to move to the west to build a special manor for all the victims that had died with the Winchester weapons.
As the medium said, the house should always remain under construction to appease those souls that tormented her. To build the manor, Sarah did not have any architect, she drew the plans of the house at night and showed them to the foreman. The house must be built along 24 hours a day, without resting. And so it was for 38 years, until Sarah died at 82.
The result is one manor full of stairs and doors that did not lead anywhere, corridors that recoiled on themselves, a total of 160 rooms, and lots of chimneys. The story says that Sarah intended to disorientate the ghosts and lock them in rooms with exactly thirteen nails. Nowadays, you can visit the real Winchester manor, and some of the people that visit the manor have felt chills and strange presences.

My bad experience with needles

Hi bloggers!
I will explain a moment of my life that has marked quite a lot. It was when I was in p5 with all my partners in the schoolyard. I was on the slide because I loved it, but there was a moment when my friends were playing with stones. Suddenly I felt a stone next to my left eye. Immediately, they took me to class to stop the haemorrhage that I had and in the meantime they called my parents. Then, my parents took me to the doctor and I was attended a few minutes later. 
The doctor took a needle and she pricked me like about 3 times, but she was a beginner and she did not know exactly what she had to do. My parents saw me suffering and they took me to another hospital. They told us that I did not need stitches, it was just a very small thing and they put a plaster on me. Now I am 15 years old and I still have that little mark. Maybe it’s difficult to see it, but from that day, I am very afraid of needles.

Black Holes


The amazing phenomenon of black holes was a great mystery before Stephen Hawking made an investigation. Black holes are the result of the death of a star because when the star dies it triggers a supernova explosion. Black holes are very famous for their great gravitational force, they are so strong that they can absorb light. Then, it is said that black holes fit the particles and, as there is no light, they are black.
They are very different from the wormhole because the two act differently.
One sucks and the other takes you to another dimension or part of the universe.
People ask questions about black holes because it is very interesting. Black holes only suck at a certain distance, so if you do not pass this determined distance, nothing will happen to you.
Anyway, if you change the sun through a black hole, nothing happens. Only if you pass from a distance does gravity absorb you and you can not escape and you will die in a different way than you normally hear. First your body is stretched and compressed making a spaghetti.
The following video is about a NASA astrophysics and it is a supernova explosion.

Sofia's Poor Family


Sofia was a girl who was only 10 years old. She was from a very poor family but so poor that she could not even go to school, she liked studying a lot but she can not because she is very poor.
Her father died when she was only 2 years old and the cause of her father’s death was that he had cancer and could not do any kind of treatment because he did not have money. Where they lived was a very small town so they could not leave that town because it had a very serious rule: if you go out of that town, they kill you or they will send you to a place where you won’t be able to leave .
Well, she lived all her life with her mother, and her mother is also sick. That is why she does not work. There are days when they do not eat but there are days when Sofia goes to look for food and if she brings it, they eat .
After a few years, her mother also died. When she was already 18,  one day she thinks why she cannot go out of the town because that rule is incorrect.

She decided to go to the house of the president of that town to talk and ask why they cannot go outside the town. When she asked him, he said it is a rule for many years and that no one can leave. After some minutes, the president says if she prepares all the people, and they could leave, he would accept it. The president knew that she would not get it because nobody want to help her because they are afraid of the president. She goes to talk to the people of the village and then, she begins to talk with the people. She talks a lot and finally they are prepared to go and find their freedom.
And then they go outside of that town……
Remember nothing changes, if you are poor nothing happens if you do not have money. Freedom is your right, and you will do it not be afraid of anything you are the future, you are the right.
