You never hear about Bulgaria on the news and to be honest, I didn't know it exsisted til this year. I looked up a lot of info on Bulgaria to complete this assignment. I learned a lot but that's no surprise. I showed pictures on this because who wants to just read about a country when you can see it. So I hope you enjoy this flipbook.

Newton's 3 law's in order are a object at rest stays at rest and a object at motion stays in motion unless stopped by an outside force. For example a soccer ball rolls until the friction of the grass makes it stop. The second law is an objects acceluration depends on the mass, size, and netforce of the object. For example a truck will go faster if it's mass is light. Newtom's third law says when a force of an object is applied a equal force is applied in the opposit direction. An example is when you hit a baseball with a bat. Force is very important in Newton's Laws. In my group we had 4 jobs. Ap had the job of the phisist, AA had the lawyer, KS had design engenieer, and I had Histroian. The phisist job is to work out the phisicks, the lawyer's job is to find out coaster laws, the design engenieer job is to figure out the design of the coaster, and my job was to find the history of coasters. I found out that the first coasters were on mountains and were made of wood.                                                                                         This coaster failed because it did not have enough speed.                                                                       This coaster worked because it had enough speed for the loops but was able to slow down before crashing. Our teams name for this coaster was Shark Attack. This project was very fun if you want to make a coaster cleck here. Article posted April 24, 2012 at 09:14 AM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 627

Writing so much make his hands hurt, but he believed that it was good to have a written document that was said from the chair.  His notes are the only step by step written docoumentation we have. If James Madison had not taken the notes that he had, we would not have a step by step written document of how the Seven Articles were made.

The first principle is the seperation of powers by three governments. First is the Legislative Branch that  enacts th laws,  the second is the Judicial Branch that  interprets laws and the third is the Executive Branch that carries out the laws. The second principle is the checks and balances which makes sure  one branch can't become too powerful by limiting the power of each branch, by having some authority over each other and by making sure each branch works together. The last principle is the shared powers. Shared powers means the federal government and the state government both have power, but some powers they share. Without the three principles our government would not be very balanced. Article posted May 20, 2011 at 05:01 PM GMT-5 • comment • Reads 196

The Virginia plan called for three parts of  the Legislative Branch which would enact the laws.  The Executive Branch would see that the laws were carried out and the Judicial Branch would see that justice was done.  This made the Virginia plan successful.
