Powerful Storm Hits Alabama – In Photos
On Sunday a powerful storm hit Alabama.
The storm produced a possible tornado that damaged the area.
This is a disaster.
At least 2 people were killed and about 100 people were injured.
It happened hours after tornadoes struck portions of Arkansas.
The storm cut down trees and power lines and damaged houses.
By Monday, almost 8,000 people across Arkansas were still without power.
A tornado is a big huge wind that is shaped like a torn and brings things away.
If you’re in a car driving and there’s a tornado some where around you, get out of your car.
Search for a drain and lie flat facing down and put your arms above your head.
Do not drive under any fly-over or highway.
In May 2011, more than 100 people were killed after a powerful tornado hit Joplin.
Today Internet Goes On Strike
Today internet companies are protesting against SOPA and PIPA.
SOPA is short for the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” and PIPA is an acronym for the “Protect IP Act”.
To know more about this, >>>please click here<<<
I do not agree with the new rules because there will be too much things that we cannot do on the internet.
Here are some companies that shows that they do not agree with SOPA and PIPA:
English Wikipedia Anti-SOPA Blackout
Wikipedia announced that the English Wikipedia will be blacked out for 24 hours globally to protest SOPA and PIPA.
So, no English Wikipedia tomorrow…..

Age of Empires 3 The Asian Dynasties
The Asian Dynasties was launched on 2007, a year after Age of Empires 3 The War Chiefs.
I first played Age of Empires 3 The Asian Dynasties after Age of Empires 3 The War Chiefs.
This computer game was created by the Ensemble Studios and Microsoft Studios who created the Age of Empires, Age of Empires 2 and Age of Empires 3.
It was developed by a video game developer named Big Huge Games.
There are three new home cities, new campaigns, new mercenaries and new tribes, Native Asians.
The three new home cities are Chinese, Indians and Japanese.
The new campaigns are Japan, China and India.
The new mercenaries are Aronists, Iron Troops, Jat Lancers, Shaolin Rattan Shields and more.
My favorite mercenary is Arsonist because they’re like Grenadiers but they throw fire instead of bombs.
The Native Asians are Sufi, the Shaolin, the Zen, the Udasi, the Bhakti, and the Jesuits.
Once upon a time, there was a wonderful place called Hilmania.
It was a beautiful place where special trees grew bearing juicy, tasty fruits.
One day, a chipmunk went to a hare’s house.
He wanted to have a race with the hare.
The hare agreed and they met the next day for the race.
The chipmunk was surprised that the hare was much faster than him.
After leaving the chipmunk far behind, the hare decided to rest.
30 minutes later, the chipmunk led the race but later the hare overtook the chipmunk.
Later, the hare saw some cute little mice and he decided to play with them.
The chipmunk ran as fast as he could and reached the finish line.
So the moral of the story is, don’t stop during a race even if you are faster than your opponent and do not give up even when you think that you may not be able to win 🙂
Landslide in Southern Philipines
On Thursday January 1, 2012 at least 25 people were killed in a landslide in the southern Philippines.
The landslide struck at around 3:00 a.m. (2100 GMT Wednesday).
About 1oo people were still missing.
The landslide happened near a gold mine in Napnapan village in Pantukan township, Mindanao.
It is very dangerous to work in that kind of gold mines because disaster may happen.
This is a latest disaster in Mindanao.
In December 2011, flash floods triggered by a tropical storm killed more than 1,250 people in Mindanao.
2011 in review
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 91,000 times in 2011. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 4 days for that many people to see it.
