FrancescoM-McA Record-breaking pumpkin weighs more than a car!

A Safeway would sponsor this contest because the more people that know about the contest will see all these sponsors and it will make the store look good. Also they probably could get money out of these contest.

RikinP-McA Teen wins Nobel Peace Prize, youngest winner ever

Thorbjoern Jagland Believed it was Important to reward both a Hindu from India and a Muslim from Pakistan because they haven't been appreciated. Those people were not allowed to go to schools and get an education, but now they can. Both are different because they have different lifestyles. I think the common part of both of them is more important because education is important for life.

BenB-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

I think now its appropriate to have a collage video game scholarship because right now so many people play video games. and even the government looks at gaming as a athletic sport. some may say if all you do is move your fingers to a virtual character, how are you an athlete. well you need took look at the definition of an athlete is a person trained or gifted in exercises or contests involving physical agility, stamina, or strength; a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical or mental skill. so lets give call of duty an example. it is a game were you compete with other people surround by obstacle you can hide, jump over, or crawl underneath. with various weapons and attachments that suit your personal or surrounding environments. which takes mental skill to do. and one of the most popular apps is YouTube. if you look at the task bar you can find a gaming section on it. other people that make videos can make a corer out of gaming. they make real money. there's even a league made for gaming. like MLB or the NFL people who game have MLG. or major league gamming. these are all reasons why I think its appropriate to have a gamming collar ship.

JaishawnM-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

If the parrot hears anything it will copy the sound or noise. If it found another owner for 4 years that speaks Spanish it will learn to speak the language. I don't know if it know what its saying because it might talk Spanish but it wont know what it means probably.

AmberDa-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

the parrot listens to the person or thing talk/make noise, the parrot doesn't really know what it is saying it just repeats what it hears. it doesn't say anything for a reason it just says whatever the owner says.

NatanielleD-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

There's only one bird that can speak or repeat and its a parrot. How a parrot barks is maybe it heard a dog bark and just repeated it. How a parrot speak Spanish is that over heard one person speaking Spanish and just repeated what that Spanish speaking person said. The Bird doesn't know what is saying because its just repeating the one thing or person all the time until it hears something new

A bird can "bark like a dog" and "speak" in Spanish because birds area able to pick up different sounds and repeat them. A bird probably doesn't know what it is saying because it is only repeating what it heard and it doesn't have the knowledge that us humans have.

JoshCa-McA Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

Why do you think they call them chocolate "chirp" cookies instead of chocolate chip cookies? My opinion on it is that since bugs like crickets make a sound with their legs which make a chirping sound. That's why they call them chocolate "chirp" cookies.

An Advantage that Robert Morris University gained over other schools by making video games a varsity sport is that more kids are most likely to participate because video games are their interest right now.

To be honest I think that making a school for video games is a stupid idea. Kids need an actual education to go somewhere in life.

By making video games a varsity sport, Robert Morris University gained more students because most students like to play video games. Once they find out that gaming is considered a sport at Robert Morris University, they'll want to come.

jennaa-Mit School bans girl who shaved head to support friend

A girl shaves her friend for the support of a friend for cancer. Kameryn went to school and her principal wouldn't let her stay at school because shaving there head was against dress code because it was too big of a distraction. Her mother was very proud of her for being selfless. the school finally thought about it and they let her come back to class.

I would never eat this because eating insects with chocolate covered on bugs is nasty That is why I would never eat this so I think people should stop eating bugs.

I do not believe that I would ever eat a bug. bugs crawl around everywhere and in the dirt it just nasty. the bugs also eat things like termites eat wood so technically I would be eating wood.

19smolmich Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

They are called chocolate "chirp" cookies instead of chocolate chip cookies because they are made with sugared wax worms and spicy Cajun crickets. I don't think I will eat them because they sound gross to me.

19wrigmira Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

no because I don't like chocolate and that's gross to eat bugs and they could lay eggs in your stomach and your could get a disease from that. You also don't know what bug you might be eating and it can be poisoning and you could die.

AimeeM-McA Record-breaking pumpkin weighs more than a car!

Safeway would most likely sponsor this contest because a 2,058 pound pumpkin will get a lot of attention and if Safeway sponsors it the will get attention eventually that will lead to more costumers.

In the text "12 year old girl sells steer for $100,000", it says in the ninth section, "Samuelson also urged the crowd not to applaud. That's because Varner's 1,330 pound steer, named Ted, gets skittish in large crowds."

They sponsored this because they are not popular at all, which this is. basically, they are just trying to score in some business for all the people who would say "Hey Billy lets go to Safeway and get some Tomarters!" (I was trying to make it a southern accent) that is why they sponsored it.

AimeeM-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

The advantages Robert Morris University gained over other schools by making video games a varsity is the fact that a lot more kids will be involved in programs. A lot of kids feel insecure about playing video cause they are not good anything else so, the advantages of that is basically a healthy environment for the students.

10/20/14
PatrickH-McA Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

The whole thing is disgusting. They call it a chocolate "Chirp" cookie because the insect that is chocolate covered chirps in the article it says "The chocolate-infused bug fare was being offered as a special "treat." It was offered right alongside the museum's year-round offerings of chocolate "chirp" cookies. The cookies are made with sugared wax worms and spicy Cajun crickets."

AlexisP-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

In the article it talks about a talking parrot who was lost 4 years, and was found talking in Spanish. A talking parrot can saying or do anything you train it to do because I've always wanted, so I've done some research on my own too. If you teach it to speak Spanish daily then it will change its language, but you cant expect a parrot to just wake up one day speaking a language it takes time. Yes these types of birds are very smart, so they understand what they are saying

They are equal because they are fighting for what they believe in. No matter what they are or where there from. There boy and girl there different but they both fight of what they want and what is good. just because there from different country's does'ent mean they should not do what there doing for what they believe in.

MyrlineR-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

I am kind of agree with devin because I don't think somebody would forget about school just to play video games I mean kids may get what ever job they want (right here I like when he said)"if they want to sit in a room all day and play video games we should let them." I am not agains them ether just do what ever you want I think that school is more important than sit down and play video games in a room.

10/20/14
PatrickH-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

Not exactly. The bird mimics what it hears, so when a dog barked, he barked back. The article states that "He was the happiest bird. He was singing and talking without control" which would mean that she was probably singing and talking and doing everything he mimicked, besides barking of course.

10/20/14
AimeeM-McA Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

In the article it says "He was barking like a dogs. I'm from Panama and he was saying, 'What happened?' in Spanish." The critical thinking challenge question wants to know "how can a bird "bark like a dog" and also "speak" in Spanish? Does the bird know what it is saying?" Well, I personally think if a bird can hear things and comprehend them, then he can be abke to repeat them. For example if you tell a dog to sit, he will sit because he understands what you are telling him, maybe the dog doesn't have a brain to like a bird to repeat it I also think the bird knows what he is saying because I don't think he would've said anything that he didn't already know.

BrandiN-McA Pigeon flies 5 miles to meet 5th grader at school

Foresta's flight was described as 5 "air miles" instead of 5 "regular" miles because pigeons don't fly on the ground. They fly in the air. So, it makes sense that they used five "air miles" apart from 5 "regular" miles.

10/20/14
WilliamD-McA Would you eat chocolate-covered bugs?

They are called that because its not a chip, its a insect. And the type of insect that it is, chirps. And most people don't eat insects, so they call it a chirp instead of a chip

JasonJ-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

The advantage Robert Morris University gains over other schools is that it is the first to recognize it as a varsity sport. They also state in the article that "The university already has scholarships for everything from bowling to dressing as the mascot." so this university can give you a scholarships from anything, so the other university only gives scholarships to 1 particular thing.

She believed to reward both because in the article it states "Thorbjoern Jagland said it was important to reward both an Indian Hindu and a Pakistani Muslim for joining "in a common struggle for education and against extremism." The two will split the Nobel award of $1.1 million."

PatrickH-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

He gets more students to be involved with the school and the university. According to the article, "School officials believe that spending money to recruit these students will enrich campus life and add to its ranks of high-achieving graduates." just for the students to sit there playing League of Clans or whatever.

ErikS-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

i love league of legends my self and to have a scholarship for it is awesome I have competed in online tournaments and last year I went to rowan university to compete in a tournament and won 12th place. so I know how it is to game a lot. as said in the text that Jayson played 10 hours a day. in my opinion is that is how you get better at the game. this is an awesome text because now I know that you can game and still succeed in life.

DevinG-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

I think that we actually should let kids get what ever kind of job they want and if they want to sit in a room all day and play video games we should let them. I personally would not want that job because I don't think video games r really that fun but if u really want that job im not against you have fun and be what u want to be you probably will make a championships and win money like Robert Morris but when your grades drop and you fail school don't blame your parents...

Robert Morris University gains smart students by making video games a varsity sport. There are students who can learn a lesson from playing video games. Surely, not all students will try to achieve a scholarship through video games but most may.

TallonM-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

the Robert Morris university have a huge advantage over other universities making video games a varsity sport. since they made video gaming a varsity sport they will have better players on there team because they got a head start. as a gamer I love the idea of video games being a sport and in that 21st century is will become more common.

10/20/14
AndrewG-McA College recognizes video games as varsity sport

The Robert Morris University has many advantages over other schools by making video games a varsity sport. One advantage is that people who need to go to a good college can now play video games to get in. Also you can get a scholarship just from playing video games. Video games were looked as a sport until now. The Robert Morris University is the best university for people who just play video games.

Buckeyes3 Can you draw better than a 40,000 year old?

That is a good picture and all but I think if I to ok my time to draw that then I would be close to the drawling fancy wise. Also it is unfair because he or she or whatever it is had more history of drawling. But I cant lie that is a wonderful drawling. My answer is I probabulary cant draw better than a 40,000 year old.

Shannonawc Record-breaking pumpkin weighs more than a car!

I think that it would be hard to take out the insides of the pumpkins or to carve the pumpkin because it Is huge. It would probably be a lot of money because of how bug it is. It would probably be really hard for someone to pick it up. It would probably be cool to have one but it might take forever to carve.

10/20/14

SA2001orange Parrot missing for years returns speaking Spanish

Birds can bark like dogs and "speak" Spanish and say other things because they learn quickly. They do what their owners tell them to do and they're able to do it because they're smart birds. I don't think the bird knows what's it's saying, it's just repeating what's it's hearing.

SD2000green Boyz II Men go back to their high school

Morris' high school was different from a typical high school because it sounded like a high school you'd only find on TV. Most high schools probably wouldn't allow their students to walk around in leotards, loiter on stairs, or plié all over the hallways. Also, the school was performing arts, so it was only filled with musicians, singers, dancers, and anything else that was involved in cinematics.

Safeway is a supermarket chain. Meaning it is a large grocery store that sells, well, pumpkins, as well as other items. They sponsor this item because it will help grow there company and other people will shop there.

Safeway might have sponsored this contest to get people to know who they are because when you have a big winner, it spreads and people will know about the person as well as the contest and people will try and join and win, and the supermarket chain gets popularity.

Its really interesting that the bird was lost for four years and when he came back home he spoke Spanish!

The wire-haired viszla must be "hardy" because these kinds of dogs are used for everything. The military,hunting, therapy dog. Really anything. It has to be strong like it could take a hit. if you had something like a yorkie, it wouldn't do very well. The passage talks about how incredible these dogs are and i agree on it. I think its a good pick for these kinds of things.

JohnMarkA3 Would you go bowling if they changed the rules?

I already go bowling a lot, but it does get boring. It takes about an hour and a half to play a normal 6 person game with 10 frames. I think making the scoring system a little more fun and exciting would up the game's excitement. Frankly, the game gets plain boring when you play it for a while. I think making the game shorter and making the scoring system a little more exciting would be a great idea. It would attract new people and most likely up the bowling market and it would make bowling a more wanted thing to do and you'd want to do it more. That means if you charge maybe $20 a game, and the normal game takes about 1 1/2 hours, you could play 3 games in that time and earn $60 other that maybe $50 for an hour and a half of bowling time.

10/19/14
JohnMarkA3 College recognizes video games as varsity sport

I honestly think that it is not a good idea for the college to have a gaming team. Like they said, it made his grades drop, and it will make your social abilities drop too. To get paid to play games makes it more appealing, but there's consequences to playing games that much. Sure it would be great to get 1 Million dollars for playing its just when you play a game that much, you think about it all the time and your grades flunk, and your ability to talk and socialize with people drops too. You won't want to do anything but play league of legends. Robert Morris College gains nothing by having a gaming team as a varsity sport. In normal sports, you go head to head against people and you exercise and stay in shape. When your on a varsity gaming team, you sit around and become obese and you do nothing with your life but stay on your computer, playing a game that is not real and you get no gain from.

I personally think that it is a good thing that the university is recognizing students to play video games because then, students can graduate with a job they are happy with, and don't have to graduate as something they don't enjoy doing. For example, they could graduate as a video game designer instead of a marketer or person that works for Telecom or something. That is why I think it's a good thing that this college is recognizing students for gaming and giving out scholarships for that.

CalderomeB-Bla College recognizes video games as varsity sport

It was weird reading College recognizes video games as varsity sport. i thought it was weird because I would never have thought you could get a scholarship for playing a game. The article said that hundreds of colleges have esports to play a single game, League of Legends. But it was also, really interesting to read that 45,000 seats were expected to be sold out at the 2002 soccer World Cup stadium. The Critical Thinking question asked: What advantages does Robert Morris University gain over other schools by making games a varsity sport? Since they made it a sport people at that school who play will get to practice more than the other people not at that school because they can play outside of school too.

I wonder how she got shot in head but the bullet didn't hit the brain. What kind of gun was it? It's still interesting how a teen won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Students, please tell me the central or main idea of the article and list THREE most important details that you think support your main idea. So, I am expecting a paragraph with a main idea statement/topic sentence and three supporting details. DON'T USE "I" IN YOUR PARAGRAPH! THIS IS NOT AN OPINION PARAGRAPH! IT'S A SUMMARY!!!

The bird can bark like a dog ? I think that the bird has a problem . I think if you want him/her to not bark like a dog don't let her hear a dog bark .

johnsonmel School’s favorite cookie banned from cafeteria

I don't understand why they would take away the school's favorite cookie. That's just mean. If that was at my school I would be upset.
