Os Gemeos
Have you been downtown recently and
seen a building turned into a character
from a cartoon and wondered where it
came from? Well right now you can go
to the ICA and find out all about it ,as
my family and I did. The large mural
was
painted by
two
Brazilian
twins that
were
inspired by
graffiti and
hip-hop
when it hit
New York.
They
brought their own style of graffiti to
Brazil, changing the style from throw
( a type of graffiti bubble letters that
we see a lot around the city), pieces
(bubble letters with plenty of colors
inside them), and tag (just regular
graffiti writing) to embellishing walls
with beautiful graffitis and lots of
colorful murals. Spray paint was too
expensive for the Pandolfo family, so
the twins quickly started using
makeshift items and fulfilled their
dreams of graffiti.

Assault on U.S. Embassy
Flood in Florida
It happened on the 11th 9/11
anniversary: U.S. Ambassador Chris
Stevens, who was visiting the American
Embassy in Benghazi, at that time, was
killed in an assault on the above. It had
started
that same
morning:
The
protests of
radical
groups in
Egypt and
Libya,
due to a
YouTube
video
named Innocence of Muslims which
many Muslims declared as an irreverent
behavior towards them. A group of
Muslims threw grenades and shot
firearms at the Embassy, killing Stevens
and 4 of his colleagues in the process. At
the same time, in Cairo, an American
flag was torn to the ground.
Astonishment and horror came over the
country, as an attack on a Country's
embassy, immediately declares war on
it. Then, though, it became clear, that the
attack might as well have been a planned
terrorist attack, and the thoughts against
the Libyan people, quickly dissolved, as
it became clear that they were trying to
protect, and after his fall, to heal the
Ambassador.
On August 21, a tropical storm was forming near the Gulf of
Mexico. On August 28, Hurricane Isaac struck Florida and the
Caribbean. The hurricane started in Cuba. It continued to Haiti,
where it did damage by flooding 300 homes, killing 29 people,
and leaving 13,500 living in emergency shelters. Because of the
storm, Haitian President Michel Martelly cancelled his trip to
Japan. Unfortunately, the
storm affected the area
where the January 2010
earthquake happened
which makes it more
difficult to repair the
damage.
Soon enough Isaac
arrived in Florida, where most of the damage was caused. There
was approximately 7 inches of rain. Two men died from driving
through the storm and crashed into a wall near Interstate 95 and
Street Road 78. It moved along Tampa, Florida and was a threat
to the 2012 RNC, (Republican National Convention) which was
held to nominate Mitt Romney for the future president.

Limite de vitesse en Texas : Un récord
Tout est plus grand au
Texas, même sa limite de
vitesse. Le “Texas
Transportation Commission” a
approuvé la limite de 135 km/
h (85 mph) sur une autoroute
qui va ouvrir en Novembre, battant le record national de 130
km/h (80 mph) . Même si l’autoroute est en pleine campagne du
Texas, les gens sont inquiets car cela peut être dangereux.
Même la limite est 135 km/h, les conducteurs iront quelques km
plus vite sans que la police les arrêtent, ce qui signifie qu’ils
pourront aller à plus de 155 km/h (à peu près 95 mph) sans se
faire arrêter.

On September 6th, meteorologists said that there
was a 40% chance that what Hurricane Isaac
would produce would be a tropical storm traveling
75 mph and causing rain near the Mississippi
River.
Hurricane Nadine will be the 6th hurricane of the
season. All people can do is prepare to protect
themselves from anything else that’s coming.
"Si vous considérez une limite de vitesse à 85
mph, nous pourrons peut-être voir des pilotes qui vont de
95 à 100 miles par heure," dit Sandra Helin, présidente
du Southwestern Insurance Information Service. Un
rapport de l’ “American Journal of Public Health”
What to do during a hurricane
Some people might experience a hurricane. In case
you do, here’s what you need to
have:

Water for each family member
 Canned food and snacks to last
for 3 days, if not more
 A can opener (one that
doesn’t use electricity)
 Clothes for each family
démontre qu’il y a eu une augmentation de 9.1 %
d’accident sur les autoroutes rurales qui augmentent leur
limite de vitesse. Tout le monde espère que cela ne sera
pas le cas pour l’autoroute la plus rapide des Etats-Unis.

 First Aid kit
 Blankets
 Books and games to keep
you busy (optional)
 Medicine you have to take
 Flashlights/lanterns/candles
 Extra batteries
 Battery powered radio
A generator isn’t necessary but it
would be convenient to have.
Now you’re ready for a hurricane!!!

Assault on US Embassy
(continued from page 2)
Though the attacks stopped, protest continued
throughout countries like Libya, Egypt, and Yemen,
making it hard for people to leave embassies. Some
people now think that this all was a great tactical strike
by terrorists, others think that terrorists were involved,
but had nothing to do with the video, which was posted
on YouTube the day before. Definite answers still
remain unclear. All we can do is be horrified by what is
going on in some places of the world.

La mort d‘ Armstrong
En mai 1961 le président américain John F. Kennedy prononce un discours
sur la conquête spatiale. Il annonce le but des Etats Unis : Faire atterrir un
homme sur la lune et le ramener sain et sauf sur la terre avant la fin des années 1960. En 1969, Armstrong, décolle du Cap Canaveral, en Floride, pour
aller sur la lune. Il devenait le premier de douze homme, jusqu’à aujourd’hui,
sur lune. (Le dernier était Eugene Cernan en1972) Quand Armstrong posa son
pied sur la lune il prononça cette phrase : « C’est un petit pas pour l’homme est un grand pas pour l’humanité. »
Maintenant, Armstrong est mort cette année, le dimanche 26 aout et le 14 septembre ses cendres furent dispersées dans l’océan. Au revoir!

Apple sues Samsung
Le dernier voyage de Endeavour
Over the summer many things have happened but
for techies it was huge when Apple
sued Samsung for over 1 billion
dollars. The two electronic giants
battled in court for copyright
infringement over smartphones and
tablets. Samsung stated that Apple
is just trying to eliminate the competition by
using the courts, like it did in Europe.
La navette spatiale
"Endeavour" a pris sa
retraite en 2011,
après sa 25ème
mission en orbite
autour de la Terre. En cette fin de semaine, elle va enfin
se rendre à sa destination finale: Los Angeles. Mais
”Endeavour” ne va pas voler par elle-même. Elle sera
transportée par un avion de la classe 747-400. L’avion va
aller d’Orlando jusqu’à L.A., et pendant le voyage, va
survoler plusieurs monuments culturels, comme le
Disneyland à Orlando, et quelques sites de la NASA,
tout autour des États. Après un vol de 1 à 2 jours autour
des États-Unis, “Endeavour” va être transportée par un
grand camion jusqu’au “Edwards Air Force Base”. Pour
cela, Los Angeles devait couper 400 arbres pour pouvoir
créer un chemin assez grand en raison de la grandeur
immense de “Endeavour”. Avec une envergure d’
environ 22-25 mètres, C’est très difficile de la
transporter dans une ville. Et maintenant, tous ensemble:
“Au revoir, Endeavour!“

Apple Secrecy
Everyone is excited. School just started but part of
the hype is finally over about the iPhone 5, the long
awaited Ipod Touch and the Nano. But the iPhone
which most people were expecting on September 12
was a letdown. Apple said it would use less secrecy
regarding its products but has it gone overboard?
Apple fans, me for one, get excited about when
iPhones are coming out, and I do my research. But
more than a month before the iPhone was released I
knew the release date and how it works.The iPhone
wasn’t so secret.

iPhone 5 vs. iPhone 4s
On September 12, 2012, Apple announced a multitude of things but the most awaited product was the iPhone 5.
Apple states that the iPhone 5 is “the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone” but here we are going to
see how much of a change there is. This is the first time Apple has changed so much in its products. So here’s
the side-by-side analysis with explanations:

iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S
(continued from page 5)
The iPhone five will be available for Verizon, At&t, Sprint, and some regional carriers; also you can
unlock your iPhone and go to T-Mobile which is now compatible with the IPhone. Siri now is able to do more
things and understands you better.
Another radical change is that the
charger is different . The iPhone,
IPod touch, and Nano now all use
this new smaller charger called
“lightning” and also new more
comfortable headphones called
“earbuds”.
The iPhone 5 is more of a change
than the 4s, with a bigger display, a
better Siri and camera, but the main
problem is the new adapter. If you
have a bunch of accessories, stay
with what you have. If you have the
4 and are looking to upgrade, just go
for the 4s. If you do not watch
movies ,need slightly better pictures
or need to have the newest thing
don’t get the 5. Wait till your stuff stops working. The iPhone five is currently available for preorder, or you
can go to stores on September 21. IOS 6 six is downloadable on September 19.

Apple sues Samsung
(continued from page 4)
You’d think Apple would be satisfied. Nope! Apple filed another lawsuit. But, is Apple overdoing it? This is
not just the elimination of products; Samsung is one of the two companies that manufacture Apple’s screens.
What if Samsung decided it
won’t produce Apple’s
screens? At the rate
everything is selling there will
be a huge shortage of
everything from iPods to iMacs.
Apple could lose lots of
business and ultimately lose
more money than if
Samsung kept all its products.
Sharp, Apple’s other
manufacturer ,can’t make
enough screens for all of Apple’s customers. So why does Apple continue? Especially in these next few months
where Apple usually sells a lot of its product because of the always-huge product releases. So Apple, be smart
and stop suing Samsung!

Apple Secrecy
(continued from page 4)
There were many videos showing that the body of the iPhone Apple was way less protective of its property. I
watched a website to find new proof of the larger display of the back of
the phone Apple was careless with its property. It’s true we all like to see
the iPhone but showing it off a month early really lowered the hype. The
one thing we were missing is the chance to buy it. Some companies were
selling a modification pack to iphone 4- 4s users so their phone looked
like the the real thing and it did. The real surprises were the new Ipods,
but looking at these websites I bet the Ipad mini is coming in October.
The lack of secrecy makes it a huge let down.
By Olivier Brunache
Pourquoi les feuilles changent-t-elles couleurs?
L’automne est une saison très belle, l’air se refroidit, les feuilles prennent de belles couleurs, mais comment cela
arrive-t-il qu’une feuille verte devienne rouge, orange, jaune et marron? Les feuilles sont vertes grâce au
pigment nommé “la chlorophylle”. En été, l’arbre contient
beaucoup de ce pigment qui rend les feuilles vertes à cause de
l’abondance de soleil. Mais en automne, quand les journées se
rétrécissent et que l’air devient plus froid (ce qui arrête la
circulation d’eau vers les feuilles), la chlorophylle se fait plus
rare et se fait
remplacer par la
carotène, un
pigment plutôt
orange et jaune que l’on trouve dans les carottes, le maïs et
d’autres plantes. Quand les feuilles deviennent rouges, c’est un
autre pigment nommé l’antocyane, qui se trouve dans les cerises et
les pommes. Ce sont ces deux pigments qui donnent les belles
couleurs d’automne qu’on
aime tous voir. Les sapins
et les pins, en revanche, ne perdent pas leurs feuilles. Si on touche les
feuilles d’un sapin, elles ont une texture très différente, qui n’est pas
douce. C’est ainsi car ces genres d’arbres ont une couche de cire qui les
protège du froid et qui utilise le soleil d’hiver pour se nourrir. Ainsi,
leurs feuilles ne tombent pas et ne changent pas de couleur.

Os Gemeos
Dancing with Renoir
(continued from page 1)
From May 9,
2012 to September 3,
2012 (yes, the event is
already over, sorry)
three paintings were
reunited at the Museum
of Fine Arts in Boston
for the first time since
the painter Renoir
painted them in 1883.
One of the paintings was from the Museum of
Fine Arts and the two other ones were from the
Musée d’Orsay in Paris. All the paintings had a
common point. They were human sized paintings
and they were all representing dancing couples.
The first one’s name is “Dance in the City”, the
second one’s name is “Dance in the Country”, and
the third one's name is “Dance at Bougival”.These
three paintings were inspired by Renoir’s love of
social life, music, and dancing. Here is a quote
from the New York Times about the three
paintings: “[...] a superbly stylish trilogy of fulllength paintings.” If you haven’t seen this amazing
trio together I have a picture for you from the time
I went there...
In 1993, a surprising event that changed the two twins’
life happened. An artist from San Francisco called Berry
McGee contacted Gustavo and Octavio because he was
going to Brazil on a fellowship. He met the two boys and
they were stunned because he was the first person they had
met who made a living from his art. After this stunning
discovery that a person could live on only his art, the
Gemeos (“gemeos” means twins in Portuguese and it is the
name they use to sign their paintings) decided to quit their
job at the bank to dedicate their life completely to graffiti.
Octavio and Gustavo’s paintings are not the type of
graffiti you see around the city. They’re almost like
cartoons, but the twins have a way of making their graffiti
look almost 3-D! They also give a special sense of humor
to the murals. Almost all of the remarkable murals
represent everyday life with that certain sense of humor I
was telling you about. They’re also extremely colorful, and
they bring fantasy to the real world. Because of the
cheerfulness in the painting and murals, the twins often
decide to put them in sad and dark places like the subway.
Another interesting characteristic of the paintings and
murals is that everybody has a different skin color or a
different shaped head or nose or body in the paintings
because there are so many different races in Brazil and the
twins wanted to speak to everybody.

Rodéo à Cody
Avez-vous déjà
assisté à un rodéo?
Moi, j’en ai vu un cet
été à Cody, ville dite
‘Capitale du rodéo’,
dans le Wyoming et je
peux vous assurer que
c’était
impressionnant. Un
vrai avant-goût de la
vie de cowboy!
Pour commencer, un
rodéo se déroule en
plusieurs épreuves, les
participants peuvent
s'inscrire aux épreuves de leur choix, ils n’ont pas besoin
de concourir dans chacune d’entre elles. Il y a des
gradins sur chacun des longs côtés de l’arène, les corrals
sont sur le côté gauche et droit de l’arène, des chevaux,
taureaux et vachettes y sont stockés, attendant leur tour
dans la compétition. Entre les gradins et l’arène se
trouvent des sortes d’estrades sur lesquelles les cowboys
se préparent. Sur les bords intérieurs de ces estrades, il y
a des sortes de box s’ouvrant sur l’arène où sont placés
les animaux pour certaines épreuves.
Les épreuves sont de différentes catégories : les juniors,
les filles et les garçons et parfois en équipe.
Dans un rodéo tout est très rapide: tout doit s'enchaîner
sans problèmes et avec le moins d’attente possible. Les
épreuves sont la monte de taureau, la monte de chevaux
excités (avec ou sans selle, parfois avec juste un
pommeau pour s'agripper) la course de barils et la
capture de veaux au lasso. La course de barils est une
course contre la montre, il faut faire le tour de trois
barils, qui sont des sortes de tonneaux, sans les renverser
et tout ça, à cheval. La monte de taureaux ou chevaux est
un concept très simple; il faut rester sur l’animal pendant
plus de 8 secondes alors que les bêtes se tordent dans
tous les sens!
10
Quant à la capture de
veaux, les participants sont
à cheval et doivent mettre
les veaux à terre avec un
lasso. Voilà, vous savez
tout ce qu’il faut savoir sur
un simple rodéo.
Par Alice Rottmann
Os Gemeos
(continued from page 9)
I think the reason why
Os Gemeos spoke to
me was because their
paintings were so cheerful, colorful, and different
than most paintings we see nowadays in museums
because they were cartoony, but that’s exactly why I
liked the exhibit. I think the twins spoke to many for
the same reasons and also because of the meanings
behind the murals and paintings.
When I was at the ICA (Institute of
Contemporary Art) I was wondering how the twins
agreed to make the paintings and murals how they
were, and if they ever got into fights if one of them
messed up, but apparently, according to various
interviews about the twins, the two understand each
other so well that they don’t even need to talk to each
other before painting onto the canvas, they just start
painting.
Os Gemeos really spoke to me and I guarantee they
will speak to you, so go to the ICA and see all their
amazing works of art!

Lakers
Michael Phelps
The Lakers are a
team with lots of
history behind them
and have many fans.
We’ve won 16 titles
and want to make it
17. So as our big 3
are aging, we all
want the an answer to this question: ”After a
disappointing 2011-12 season, will the Lakers make a
comeback this year ?”
Who doesn’t love the Olympics? There is something
for everyone. Sadly this year it’s going to be the
farewell to an era. 27 year old Olympic athlete Michael
Phelps is retiring this year. Even if he’s 27 his
Olympic debut was when he was 15, making him one
of the youngest American Olympic athletes of all time.
Sadly there has come a time when an era must end .
Michael Phelps
couldn’t have retired a
better way than by
winning his last
Olympic gold medal.
The last two Olympics
I watched the
swimming events in
awe when I saw these
swimmers go as fast
as humanly possible but none could match Michael
Phelps. Even in tight races he would do something that
was inexplicable and win. He has gotten a lot older and
less prepared. For
those of you who
watched his first race
this year in London he
didn’t even make it to
the medal stand, but
later he became his
old unbeatable self
and in his last race he
officially became the greatest Olympian of all time. He
has set another record ; this time not in speed but in
achievement .He has become the all time most
decorated Olympian. But US swimming isn’t over.
There are still the dominating Ryan Lochte and the
young and talented Missy Franklin who will be 19 the
next time we see her on the Olympic stage.
This offseason the Lakers acquired an all-star starting
lineup consisting of Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Pau
Gasol, Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace. So
now the three contenders for the championship are the
Lakers, Oklahoma City and the Heat.
Even though I am a die hard Celtics fan, I have to face
it, the Lakers have the most chances of winning the
title. First of all, they had a good team but now with
the addition of Steve Nash, Dwight Howard and
Andre Iguodola they have a very dangerous lineup.
Secondly, their defense is unbeatable as they have a
team composed of *all-defensive first team players.
Thirdly, they have a great offensive combo of Nash
who passes, Kobe who shoots and Dwight for the
Rebounds, hopefully they won’t use the “Kobe
System”.
 *a selection of the 12 best defensive players of the
league
*The Kobe System is a offensive system where the rules
are:
If you have the ball, shoot
If you get a pass, shoot
If you get a block,steal or rebound, shoot
If you see a teammate wide open, shoot
If you are tripled team, shoot

Mrs. Kern
What great news, our music teacher Ms. Hammond
got married, this summer in her yard. She married
David Kern, an IBM security architect, who she
met at camp. She thought her wedding was
amazing and there was nothing she wanted to
change, but the rehearsal was not the same.
Unfortunately Mrs. Kern’s father in law stepped on
a yellow jacket nest, but do not worry, he was fine.
They had to evacuate the area, and that is when
they decided to get married in the yard. And now
Mrs. Kern is our music teacher and hopes to be a
mother someday as well.

FUN!
Clara Miller and Emma Condie in 8th grade are writing a book. They gave us permission to publish the Prologue. If you like the
story, we may be able to continue on with parts of chapters, throughout the next issues. Enjoy!
PROLOGUE
It was around midnight, mid-July, 1984, when Sullivan Jeller ran away from the Pickleton
Family with his sister Ivy. It was a dark and stormy night. Well, no. But the sky was dark, and they
had been running for quite a long time.
You see, Sullivan and Ivy weren’t the Pickletons’ actual children. The real Pickleton
children, Tartulla and Esmerry Pickleton (both female), were swallowed by a hippopotamus. How
horrible.
Anyhow, Sullivan and Ivy ran away because the Pickletons had been in a great sadness the
past few weeks, caused by the loss of their children, and thus not in their right mind. This caused
Mr. Rory Pickleton to come to the conclusion that Sullivan and Ivy should be sold to Mitt
Balooney, a man with a wide stomach who liked to make children pea soup with pig skin and force
it down their throats. A perfect choice for adoption, eh? Uh huh.
However there was also another reason for the sudden escape. It was Ivy. Sullivan loved his
sister so much. And lately, he’d seen something change, very subtley-- but it was there.
Somewhere deep inside Ivy Jeller, something had happened.
Something bad.
She had become more distant recently. Her usual wavy blond hair was streaked with old,
black highlights running haphazardly through her hair and her ever-tan, sun-kissed skin was
becoming abnormally pale. At first, Sullivan thought it was because of the way they were being
treated at their new “home,” but the unfamiliar hardness in his sister’s eyes told him otherwise.
Ivy seemed to be floating out of his grasp, like a lost balloon, up and awa. But Sullivan had
never let go of her, and he had never wanted to. He had taken care of her all of her life, like the
older brother he thought his parents would have wanted him to be. But now -- she was suddenly
lost in her own mind. Acting as if she didn’t need him anymore. But they had to stay together if
they were going to survive. Or be separated forever.
And the only thing Ivy seemed content on doing with him when she was around was argue.
Argue, argue, argue.
Ivy was constantly running away from him now. Not only that, but the silent treatments and
fights were becoming more and more constant, and Sullivan hated it.
However, while they were running away from their foster home, Sullivan still saw the
hardness in her eyes. But decided to keep running.
It was probably around 1 or 2 am. By now, and too chilly for a summer night. Ivy’s legs
were scratched and bruised more than usual now; but in the brief three years she’d lived in Hawaii
with Sullivan, Laney and Paulo Jeller, her skin had been smooth and tan, and her rare blond hair
soft and wavy.
But now... Now she was almost unreachable.
Almost as if someone else was speaking to her, someone more important than her own
brother.
That someone just happened to be a book.

Book Reviews: 1. The Candymakers
1.
Imagine living in a candy factory. Wouldn't
it be awesome!? That’s how it is for 12 year
old Logan and his parents. At the “Life is
Sweet” candy factory, Logan, Daisy, Phillip
and Miles are preparing to compete in the
annual candy making competition! This
book is a bittersweet tale of spies,
briefcases, and candy! It’s the delicious tale of how
candy making can burn. In more ways than one!
“The Candymakers” is one of the best books I’ve ever
read. It may seem childish and lame but it definitely
isn't! It’s so fantastical and imagined that it’s impossible
not to like it. I recommend this book to anyone who likes
fantasy novels and CANDY of course!

Cet été, j’ai lu un livre que j’ai
bien apprécié qui s’appelle
Georges et les Secrets de
L’Univers. L’histoire parle d’un
petit garçon qui rencontre ses
nouveaux voisins pour la
première fois. Il découvre que le
père est un scientifique et qu’ils ont un ordinateur super
puissant qui peut envoyer des personnes dans l’espace. Mais
ce que Georges, le petit garçon, ne sait pas, c’est que
quelqu’un recherche l’ordinateur pour le voler. Georges
révèle accidentellement l’endroit où l’ordinateur est caché. Le
professeur qui veut voler l’ordinateur super puissant le trouve
et envoie le voisin de Georges dans un trou noir pour pouvoir
voler l’ordinateur sans problème. Pour savoir ce qui se passe
après, lisez le livre! Je le recommande surtout si vous aimez
la science et l’espace. Joyeuse lecture!

false claim about the number of mistakes
The Lost Children is about a girl
named Josephine whose father
(Leopold Russing) makes
everybody in their town wear gloves
(which they hate). But her world
changes, when Josephine meets a
boy named Fargus who
mysteriously appears in her shed.
She is dragged to the past by
Fargus and a girl named Ida in an
orphanage. If you read this
awesome book you will experience
strange and original monsters,
imprisoned children, and a messed
up past that can change the future.
If you want to know more, just read
the book! I recommend this book to
anybody who likes to read
something very exciting and
experience weird stuff.
