Not even every man. If you had submitted a crime, you weren't able to. All of this shows that the olympics are more fair now, and back then, people weren't fair and they didn't believe women were strong enough to compete in the olympics.

Tornadoes are made from cold and warm air that come together and then it starts spinning inside a cloud. The air keeps spinning until it pushes out of the cloud forming a funnel. The air in the funnel keeps spinning and pushing down ‘till it reaches the ground. Then it is an official tornado. The tornado keeps spinning but instead of staying in place it starts moving forward.

In my book I am reading about how much damage they do and what causes them in the book it said "earthquakes are caused when rock underground suddenly breaks along a fault. This sudden release of energy causes the seismic waves that make the ground shake. When two blocks of rock or two plates are rubbing against each other, they stick a little. ... When the rocks break, the earthquake occurs." what this means is...that that is how a earthquake causes and that can also cause landslides,mudslides,avalanches and tsunamis.(it also said that in the book).

In my non fiction reading book. Gandhi is not so thrilled about the British ruling India. This is because the British rule India poorly, and unfairly. For example the Salt Act was unfair because the people of India had to pay for Salt when they could just collect it. On April 7 Gandhi broke the law by simply picking up a lump of salt from mud. This was at the Arabian sea. Gandhi tried very hard to make his country great again, although gandhi had to starve himself and be sent to jail 6 times. After all this gandhi achieved his goal, although he was shot on January 30.

In Human Body by Dan Green, you can find many facts and tidbits of information. Example: white blood cells. I found lots of information and from this I am creating a book that is based entirely on this chapter with lots and LOTS of elaboration. Also, this book shares information on stuff like enzymes and other aspects of the body.

In my book the author is trying to tell me that tsunamis can be very bad! I think this because all of the paragraphs she's done are all the bad things they can do!
