Match Stick Rocket
Match Stick Rocket SUBJECT: Rocketry TOPIC: Propulsion DESCRIPTION: A small solid propellant rocket is made from a match and a piece of aluminum foil. CONTRIBUTED BY: Steve Culivan, KSC EDITED BY: Roger Storm, NASA Glenn Research Center 2 match book matches or wooden stick matches Small square of aluminum foil Paper clip Safety pin Take one match and wrap a small piece of aluminum foil around the match-head. Caution: Be sure the match rocket is pointed away from people or burnable materials. it is recommended to have water or some other fire extinguishant available. DISCUSSION: The match stick rocket demonstrates Isaac Newton's Laws of Motion as they relate to rocketry. In an interesting variation of the experiment, try making holes of different diameters to let the combustion products out at different rates.

Children's Object Lesson: The Full Armor of God Object Lessons and children's sermons are a great way to teach children through everyday objects that God is real, alive and ready to help them in their lives. We can't expect children to fully understand God's love for them without using objects, concepts or thought processes that are already familiar to them. As you prepare to teach a bible talk for children, pray that God will use you to get out his message to the young hearts and mind that he has set before you.

Physics envy In science, the term physics envy is used to criticize a tendency (perceived or real) of softer sciences and liberal arts to try to obtain mathematical expressions of their fundamental concepts, as an attempt to move them closer to harder sciences, particularly physics. Evolutionary biologist Ernst Mayr discusses the issue of the inability to reduce biology to its mathematical basis in his book What Makes Biology Unique?.[2] Noam Chomsky discusses the ability and desirability of reduction to its mathematical basis in his article "Mysteries of Nature: How Deeply Hidden General Person Generator People This arrogant woman has droopy gray eyes that are like two pieces of steel. Her luxurious, wavy, brown hair is worn in a style that reminds you of a holy halo. She is very tall and has an amazonian build.

I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks.

Spanish artist Juan Francisco Casas uses up to four 14p ballpoint pens to create his incredibly photorealistic drawings, measuring up to 10ft (3 meters) high. The use of penballs makes Juan’s drawings even more original, which certainly has played a big role in his way to success, and his works are already a sell-out at exhibitions. His source of inspiration comes from his own photographs of nights out with his friends, so you can only imagine how wild his parties are, as half of his drawings include girls that forgot to put on their clothes.
