Math

Today I learnt about a Term, a Sequence and a Pattern Rule.

Term: A term is any number in a pattern.
Ex: 5,10,15,20 are all terms.

Sequence: A sequence is something that happens in a specific order.
Ex: 2,4,6,8 are sequence numbers because they fall in a specific order.

Pattern Rules: A pattern rule is something that repeats itself.
Ex: 567,189,63,21 is dividing and the answer is always 3.
567/189 = 3 189/63 = 3 63/21 = 3

This is what I learnt and will always know!!

Learning About The Disease Ebola

 I have recently read up on Ebola. Ebola is in West Africa, the  U.S.A. and even here in Canada. Ebola has may different symptoms such as: Vomiting, Aches and Pains, Headaches, Red Eyes, Diarrhea, Fever, Lack of Appetite, Difficulty Swallowing and Breathing, Rashes and Hiccups.
 In 1976, there was 3 case of Ebola, which resulted to 2 deaths. In 2013, the doctors found 1,716 cases. As of August 26 ,2014 they have found 3,069 cases and Ebola has  killed 1,552 people.
Some doctors believe that Ebola is going to go around  the world and kill  many of us. They are speculating that in 2016, most people will have the virus and many of us will die due to it. Currently there is no vaccine, however the Scientist and Doctors are working together to manufacture a vaccine to help with this strain of virus.
When you are diagnosed with the Ebola Virus, Doctors are saying you have 16 days to live, when the virus matures on the 7th and 8th day your organs and body begin to shut down and thus you begin to die a slow and painful death.
So please if you know that the area that you are planning to visit or vacation has been affected do the smart thing and don't go!!
