Transcript: Amazing Race Earthquake Protection and Scoliosis By: Piper, Andee, and Austin Some of the largest earthquakes have been in Chile, Alaska, Japan, and Indonesia. Scoliosis Scoliosis is a condition in which your spine is abnormally curved. A lot of people that have it have to wear a brace that fits under or over your clothes. Who can have scoliosis? Anyone can have scoliosis, but it's most common type is idiopathic scoliosis which occurs in pre and early teens. Based on different occureces you could treat it with surgery, a brace, or just keep it under observation. Famous people with scoliosis Some famous people with scoliosis are Usain Bolt, Jessica Andrews, and Vanessa Williams. Scoliosis Cure The cure for Scoliosis is yet to be determined. However there is a cure for people 65 years and older. 1 out of 10 ten-year-olds will be born with scoliosis. A common name for scoliosis is idiopathic scoliosis, Meaning they don't know what caused it. Scoliosis reseach Reseachers are looking for cures for this common problem by looking at genetics, growth, and changes in the spine, muscles, and nerves, along with many more subtle changes in the affected area. Thank You! Drop-Cover-Hold On are the steps to help you survive. If you ever get caught in an earthquake, all you have to do is drop to the floor, cover your head and vital organs, and hold on to the leg of a table or desk.

Transcript: The Amazing Race Hill of Crosses The reason the crosses are up there is because it arose a symbol of Lithuanian defiance of foreign invaders. It's location is 56 degrees North and 23 degrees East. We came here because it looks mysterious and almost kind of creepy. The Hill of Crosses contains 400 hundred large crosses surrounding much smaller crosses. The Hill of Crosses is located in the Lithuanian National pilgrimage center. It is in the European region. Also, the crosses represent Christianity. Sainte Chapelle The Sainte Chapelle is located within Palais de Justice in a city in the middle of Paris. It's location is 48 degrees North and 2 degrees East. We came here mostly because of how big it was, it looked really fancy and our type of place. It was built by Louis IX, the king of France. The upper part of the chapelle was the royal chapelle and was where relics were to be exhibited. The lower part was dedicated to Virgin Mary. Christ the Redeemer In 1859, father Pedro Maria Boss, suggested that they should construct it to be a religious monument in honor of Princess Isabel. It's location is 22 degrees South and 43 degrees West. We came here because we both think that religious places are fun to learn about. Christ the Redeemer is located on the top of Corvocado Mountain. The statue over looks Rid de Janerio. Forbidden City The forbidden city was home to 24 emporors of the Ming dynasties. The reason it's called the "Forbidden City," is because you had to have royal authorization to get in, and if you didn't, it would cost you your life. Zuma Rock This big rock is located in Nigeria. It is 725 meters high. Also, it is used for defensive purposes only against invading neighbors. It is 9 degrees North and 7 degrees East. We came here because we originally planned to climb it, but it was not allowed. Mount Fuji Mount Fuji is a dormant volcano. You can climb it in July and August only. It is 3776 meters high and it is worshipped as a sacred mountain. It is 35 degrees North and 138 degrees East. We came here because this mountain was actually opened for climbing since we couldn't climb the Zuma Rock. Victoria Falls Victoria Falls is located on Zambezi River. It is also known as "the greatest curtain of falling water." It sprays 546 million cubic meters of water per minute. The waterfall has a width of nearly 2 kilometers and it is over 100 meters long. It is 17 degrees South and 25 degrees East. We came here because our plan was to jump off of it, but we both chickened out and just enjoyed the view. "Hill of Crosses."

Transcript: Machu Picchu Just south of Mexico City on a remote island, sits the home of thousands of mutilated dolls. The story goes that the lone occupant of the island found the body of a child washed up on shore and hung her baby doll up in the trees in an attempt to appease her spirit. However, it is said that he was driven mad by the spirit's want of more dolls and dedicated his life to gathering and hanging up more dolls around the island. South America Area 51 This is where the first serial killer was convicted in South Africa. The killer was convicted of murdering multiple men including teens. This court house has been told to be haunted by her spirit. This house was once a school in the southern part of Sydney Australia. The story goes that a local student at this school drowned in a nearby pond and his fellow students were unable to revive him. The school kept his body in the cold cellar until it was picked up. After this accident the school was eventually shutdown and was turned into a house. A couple bought this house and within just a few months, their son passed away from a terrible disease. It is said that these boys' spirits can be found playing together around the pond and cellar. Amazing Race The world's most popular suicide location lies at the base of Mt. Fuji in a dense forest that has come to be known as the "suicide forest". Due to the massive area of the forest, once inside it is not likely that you will encounter anyone else and your compasses will be rendered useless because of the soils magnetic iron. There are signs posted around the forest reading "Your life is a precious gift from your parents" and "Please consult the police before you decide to die". There have been an uncountable number of suicide victims recovered from the forest. The forest workers have the unsettling task of finding and taking the bodies of the suicide victims and taking them to a special bunker made specifically for these bodies. Asia Deep in the heart of Hungary, is a castle that was once home to the countess Elizabeth Bathory. The ruins that are open for public tour have a dark history. It is said that as the countess began to age, she began to search for a cure to her mortality. She soon took to believing that bathing in the blood of virgins would bring her eternal youth. Elizabeth would lure young girls to her castle where she would savagely torture and murder them and then commence to drain them of their blood so that she could bathe in it. It is figured that she murded upwards of 600 young women. Tourists today can tour her chambers and even sit in the very bath tub Elizabeth bathed in. Australia Studley Park House The Body Farm Africa The Stanley Hotel Port Lockery Start Located at the University of Knoxville, Tennessee, is the Facility for Forensic Anthropology Research. Developed and operated by forensic anthropologist Dr. Bill Bass the facility is a center where the dead come to be studied in the process of their decay. With over 190 sets of remains scattered through the woods surrounding the facility, the center is used to better understand the process of human decomposition after death. It is vital to forensic scientists to understand the time table of death when different conditions are in place. They have bodies placed in all of these different conditions ( hanging from nooses, in water, buried in dirt and concrete, and in vehicles). Without the macabre studies occurring at the center not much would be known about the extensive and intricate process of human decay that has befitted law officials and will continue to benefit them in the future. Located in Cape Town South Africa, the Castle of Good Hope was once the home to Governor Van Noodt who often tortured, ridiculed, and even killed his own soldiers just for fun. People have reported strange sightings and paranormal phenomenons around this castle. This bay is full of icebergs and glacial water which is Antarctica. We would visit this place because it shows Antarctica and its freezing coldness but you can also see penguins which act like you aren't even there. Aokigahara Suicide Forest Takakanonuma Greenland opened it's doors in the mid-seventies as an amusement park. However, very soon after opening it was shut down. This was perhaps due to the many accidents and deaths on the property. The park has long been overtaken by dense vegetation and a heavy fog. Takakanonuma Greenland is so remote and wanted to be forgotten that it does not appear on any maps of Japan. Also, there have been no recent pictures taken of the area due to unknown reasons. This was an Ican site of rituals and spirituality. sadly during the 15th century the city was abandoned due to the spanish conquest. Today the city stands untouched and is now open to the public. However, it is said that the city is haunted by the past civilization that once lived here and mysterious entities have been known to walk around the abandoned village and is said that they are there protecting the
