    2. The hotter the temperature, the more colors shift from red to yellow to white to blue.

    3. Research suggest that laughter maybe a buffer against heart attacks.

    Re: How can you paraphrase these sentences?

    Why do you want them paraphrased? They seem fine to me, except that 'maybe' in #3 should be two words.
