Readers response A television drama

Part A-” At this moment we do not know where the male criminal is, the police are using dogs at the moment to track down the male” i stated

as far as i could see the male was gone and the dogs where not helping, it was a cold day not like many others. All the women see so concerned on the street as they all stand on there front lawn.

all of a sudden i see a young woman walking out of her house slowly, i guess to see what is going on. She looks rather curious but fritend at the same time. Thee police man yells in a loud voice ” please go back into your houses” but i look at all the women and they do not move.

suddely out of the corner of my eye i see a man running all covered in blood and limping but running very fast. I think that is the man they are looking for about to go notify a police officer the man falls right infront of one. I grab the camera crew and rush forward to the scene. ” we have found the man he came running out of nowhere and is currently being put in an ambulance and taken to the hostpital later his arrest will taken ” i state. I see the ambulance rush down the street with it sirens off. I walk towards a older women ” what did you see from this whole advent, what are your thoughts” i asked her politely. ” he practilcy fell right at my feet” the women claimed. I notice the young women i saw earlier scrambles into her house slowly probley waiting for her husband i think.

Part B-Carolee saw the news and imediatly reacted bad to the media and became more scared then she was before. When her husband came home he read the news paper and had seen the news but was also scared ans shocked by the media.

K12 periodic table app

How can I find data on elements easily and quickly?  I spend too much time looking up the indivdual physical properties of elements.

I could look each element up individually at the library and write everything in a notebook so that i could look them up.  This would be too time consuming because some information you have to dig a little deeper for.  You could look up each element individually and print everything you need to know and organize it in a spreadsheet.   This would take a long time too.  If I was looking for an app to use for looking up elements, I would look for one that can show you things you can’t usually find in a normal periodic table.  I would also want an app that would make my work easier as a student.  I would want something that  would provide good information quickly and easily.

The app I found is called K12 Periodic Table.  It was easily found on the app store and was free.

This app makes finding data on elements much easier.  The app has a great feature allowing you to look at the melting and boiling point of each element, number of atoms, number of protons, number of electrons and atomic number.  This app also shows the Lewis diagram for some elements. It also has settings to allow you to organize the elements by colour coding them by melting and boiling points.  You can change the settings to categorize the elements with the most outer orbitals,  organize by radius, ion radius, electronegativity and ionization energy. Another setting allows you to change the temperatures from Kelvin, Celsius and Fahrenheit.  You also have the option us use the traditional or expanded layout.  I preferred the  traditional layout.



To use this app you tap on the element you want to research and all of the data pops up in a block on the top of the screen.


This app is really easy to use and was easy to find on the app store.  It has most of the information that a high school student would need when studying the periodic table in science or chemistry class.   It is easy to navigate and is really user friendly.  The app could be better if it showed a photograph of each element if possible and showed a diagram of what the atoms would look  like. A photo of each element at it’s melting or boiling point would be useful too in understanding some of the properties of elements.   It doesn’t give a clear reading of the number of ions for the charge and are a little bit hard to find.  They could also offer an alphabetical list of elements so that you wouldn’t have to search the periodic table for what you are looking for if you don’t know where it is. I will probably keep this app on my device for future use.
