LukeM-5 Colossal squid is as long as a minibus!

this article is about a sailor named captain Bennet finding a catching a 770lb colossal squid in the remote Ross sea. this was the second colossal squid he found the last he gave to a museum to be put on display. however he wanted his second find to be researched by scientists. the scientists just figured out how to thaw out the squid. they found out it was a female with tentacles three and a half feet long with two twice that size. they also said that the squid was as long as a minibus. the article also said that 142,000 people watched the squid be dissected on the Internet

SabrinaP-5 Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

I personally think that songs get stuck in our head because we either listen to them a lot, hear other people listen to the song, or hear it over played on the radio. I don't know how we get a brain itch, I'm going to take a lucky guess and say we get them when we are focused or we are trying to think. People may get this "brain itch" when they are working on something really hard or trying to think of something. I personally never got a brain itch before, but if I did I would of been able to explain it better. Back to the songs, when I hear a song that I liked I keep listening to the song over and over again so I can get to sing along by knowing the lyrics.

Some people listen to a song a few times but it still gets stuck in your head. To get rid of a song stuck in your head I would concentrate on something else. Like doing your homework, going for a walk, hanging out with your friends and being with fun people. They way I get rid of a song is by listening to a new song, the old one goes away and if you don't listen to the new song a lot it probably wont get stuck in your head.
Another way is being around your family too.

DominicA-Hen School’s favorite cookie banned from cafeteria

I agree that these delicious cookies should only be given out on special occasions because these are really good. I think that if they don't give them out so much it wont be a problem.

ishanti-Ing Why do bugs die on their backs?

All bugs don't die on their backs but the ones that do.Is cause their blood stop flowing through bodies, and their legs give out cause their body is heavy and they fall on to their backs.I never seen a bug that was dead before on their back.I leaned something new from readings this article on bugs.

MaxG-4 Colossal squid is as long as a minibus!

This is an article about a pair of fishermen catching a giant squid. They donated it for scientific research. It was described as "Very Big, Very Beautiful" and having tentacles "3 and a half feet long" an amazing site. Slightly more than a hundred thousand students from about 180 countries watched the examination of this creature online. In the end it talked about how the squid is eaten by sperm whales and how that could have led to the story of the Kraken.

I found this article interesting just because in my mind these kind of things prove that our previous theories of the world could be wrong. We used to believe Giant Squids were fake, who knows we might soon find something like the Loch Ness monster. (Zoinks!)

MailanN-4 With a red cup, she becomes Miss America

Miss New York was just presented with the Miss America crown recently by using only her voice and a red cup! She sang "Happy" by Pharrell Williams while tapping her hands on this red cop. She got her inspiration to do this talent by the movie "Pitch Perfect". I agree to everything she said about doing whatever you want and like to do. To only do what makes you happy and hopefully everyone else!

RyanSe-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think that the IPhone 6 is cool but the apple watch is going overboard because they want $349 for a phone watch I think it is not worth it.

09/19/14
RyleighJ-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

In my opinion I don't really think that the watch is a good idea because it is way to expensive for some p[people to afford.

JeffreyW-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The Apple Watch was the star of the show because it was a brand new product that has probably never been seen in mainstream markets.

09/19/14
AbbeyB-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think it said it was the star of the show because there has never been a smart watch made before. Everyone is going to want the watch once it comes out. It will probably sell more than the new iPhones coming out.

PeytonMa-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

Well im not really a fan of apple products. I would rather prefer a galaxy than an iPhone. The bigger the phone the bigger the bill and bigger the pockets.

MailanN-4 Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

polls say that 90% of us memorize songs easier than anything else. And that 9 out of 10 of us experience this weekly. Polls also said that our mind plays a song in our head when we have nothing to use our brain for so that's why we get a song stuck in our head. The only way to get the song out of our head it to challenge your mind by doing puzzles or something to keep you busy. I 100% agree to this and know that it's true because whenever i am bored i start singing and get the song stuck in my head.

09/19/14
MollyN-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I feel the author thought the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because it seems it will be the next big thing once it comes out.

MadisonW-Moo Why do bugs die on their backs?

The law of physics they succumb to is they get top heavy because the blood flow stops then their limbs stop working so they fall over onto their backs.

BaileeS-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I think the government benefits from getting these light houses because they will get but loads of money out of the lighthouses. That's if people will keep buying these light houses.

09/19/14
DylanV-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling these lighthouses by. One thing they get the money from people, profit right away. The lighthouses that are sold wouldn't be sold for nothing they would still be used by their new owners. They could be used for shelter or still as a regular lighthouse. Now or later, short or long those lighthouses will be bought. The government gets money to make more or for things to do in the future.

09/19/14
MeganB-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

Sounds to me that the government is selling and giving out lighthouses for more profit. The short term is that they get money from people right away and the long term is that they can collect the taxes and still make money even though they already sold it.

valorgosch Colossal squid is as long as a minibus!

A fabled creature recently was found a mile below the waters of New Zealand, This animal is the giant squid. When the scientist pulled it up onto the deck of there ship it was partly alive eating a fish. They immediately froze the animal and kept it frozen for almost eight months as it awaited to be dissected. Besides the rare opportunity to dissect the squid the operation was streamed over the internet. It is being debated whether it is possible to display the squid.

HaleyR-4 Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

Apple has came out with the newest technology and not only are the phones but one is a smart watch. The newest phones are the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus both iPhones have bigger screens than BEFOR and have improved in different way my haveing a better quality camera and have made it easier to get to things faster. The new smart watch has improved even more , it has stuff that other watches has never have . If you forget you phone you will always have your smart watch attached to your rist and if you need to know something you can always just use your watch to find out the time or the news you need to know . My opinion on the newest technology is good because soon all these things will becom collecters ideam.

juliam123-McC Why do bugs die on their backs?

The law of physics is that many bugs die on their backs.Because the normal blood flow stops, legs contract, and they get to top heavy which means they can't stand up anymore and they fall on their backs.

09/19/14
emaleigha123-McC Why do bugs die on their backs?

The bugs succumb to falling their backs because they get top heavy and then start to fall over which first leads to the normal blood flow stops, the legs startt to contract, and finally that's when it falls on its back.

zoiec123-McC Robocop throws first pitch

Because he was famous and people probably thought it would be really cool if everyone knew that someone famous, Robocop, played at a Detroit Tigers game.

alexisc123-McC Why do bugs die on their backs?

The bugs land on there backs because they get top heavy and cant flip over. If they are sick or injured or hurt, it makes it harder for them to get up

kaitlynnh123-McC China creates sidewalk for people who walk and text

I love the idea of lane texting and no texting to keep people safe. If the lanes were not there, it could cause a accident then it would hurt the citizen.

09/19/14
zoiec123-McC Why do bugs die on their backs?

Some bugs fall on their back because blood flow stops, legs contract, and the bugs top gets heavy, so it turns over. I just thought as the bugs walk, they stumble and fall on their back and die, which now I know they do that when they actually die and not because they turned over.

alexisc123-McC Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

Your brain can have an itch if you got something in your head that you can't get out that you want out like its stuck in your head until you do something to get it out.

09/19/14
juliam123-McC Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

When they say that you brain can have an itch they mean that as, its like a song getting stuck into your head and you cant get it out.Like a worm getting into your ear that you cant take out.

09/19/14
kaitlynnh123-McC Why do bugs die on their backs?

Most bugs don't instuily die, they lay there on their back in their final monents. Some die and the law of physics say the can't get up when they are sick, injury, and die.

09/19/14
zoiec123-McC Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

It is basically just saying that you have something stuck in your head, like a song, and you cant seem to get it out so you just listen to the song over and over.

kaitlynnh123-McC Why do songs get stuck in our heads?

By each person having a song in your head it like a itch inside of your head. About 98% or 99% of people have songs that you sing in your brain cause an itch in your head.

one day in Antarctica a man cough a giant squid the size if a minibus. the colossal squid was 770 lbs. the squid was a fem ail with eyes like dinner plates and tentacles like fire hoses. Kat Bolstered a squid scientist described the squid as very big and very beautiful. i think that this as a wonder full discovery in the field of science.

I think the author think the Apple Watch was the “star of the show" because it is something that a lot of consumers want. it will also have a better strap and more styles to chose from.

AlishaT-Hen Ever wonder why school starts so early? (Hint: $$$)

I agree that school should start later because of the affect that it can make on some students and some students will mostly be sleepy and not do there work as and some student and teachers wont be grumpy from waking up early in the morning because some students and teachers have to wake up early in the morning and they will be really tired and wont do good in school.

Why did they have to ban these cookies!???? It's not like we have them everyday, but it will be better if we can have them on Friday's. I know we should eat healthier but doesn't mean you got to ban all of the junk foods we get.

LoanaK-Hen China creates sidewalk for people who walk and text

I think this a good idea that they made a sidewalk for people that like to text and tweet on streets. Sidewalks are not dangerous but the streets are because people are driving in streets and you never know what happens on the streets On the streets there can be many accidents when you are walking and looking at your phone. The sidewalks are for our safety.

MackenzieR-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thought the apple watch was the "star of the show" because it has many features such as fitness, digital crown, and a variety of styles, straps, and a choice of two sizes. Also apple has never had a smart watch.

09/19/14
JamieE-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thinked it was because you can where it one your wrist and can answer it when you are in a rush. It will be a lot easier.

09/19/14
ZoeS-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thinks the new Apple Watches will be the star of the show because its new technology, it also can track fitness, and also it comes in different styles.

09/19/14
AlysonW-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think the apple watch is the star of the show because it can tell you like miles on when you run and plus some people don't like phones and they like a watch better.

09/19/14
MadelynW-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thought this because, the I watch makes them think it is the next big thing. When the company makes a new "I" product, they think that it makes people feel innovated since the new iPad and IPhone was released in 2010.

09/19/14
SavannahSe-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author more than likely was more fascinated by the smart watch due to the fact that Apple has not made anything like before. I would not like to have a phone that's too big to fit in my pocket or a watch on my wrist because of radiation. It could cause cancer and I don't want that at all.

09/19/14
SamanthaR-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think that it is because apple doesn't make watches, and they don't really make much other than IPhones and IPads, but the watch does seem pretty cool.

I completely agree with you your opinion is so true. Your right maybe these cookies aren't the best food we can have but sometimes we just need a snack and all snacks don't always have to be healthy. We need some junk food sometimes.

09/19/14
EmmalyR-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The Apple Watch is the "star of the show" because its the next big thing. The watch will be able to different tasks and lets not forget that it comes in a variety of styles.

09/19/14
KayleeB-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thought the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because Apple hasn't made anything like this before. The article states that the Apple Watch is first major entry into a new product since the iPad in 2010.

09/19/14
JackB-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think he said that because it is a wearable device and it is the first major entry for apple since they made the iPad.

09/19/14
KateyN-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because Apple has never made anything like this before. Having a watch like this seems like something we would have seen on a futuristic TV show when we were 8 years old. For people who are very into Apple products, the Apple Watch is probably very exciting.

09/19/14
AustinA-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think the author thinks the apple watch was the star of the show because businesses have never made something like that but there is a lot of phones that have been made

09/19/14
LexyH-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author probably thought that the apple watch was the "star of the show" because the other kinds of watches just show how fast you are and other things like that but the new watch isn't like anything else.

09/19/14
RyleighB-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thought that the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because there are many more features on the new phone and they will come more handy for kids. Also, it's supposed to help just people in general. For work, school, any other things that involve the thinking process.

09/19/14
KarleeP-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

Apple thought the watch was better because they have not made anything like that yet, I think its ridiculous how expensive these items are though. I mean really? 400 for 128 gigabytes? Okay Apple I see. I would like a new phone though but why do they have to make them bigger? I think the 5c is big enough. No one wants a giant phone hanging out of their pocket.

JulianaG33-Hen School’s favorite cookie banned from cafeteria

One reason why i think that this was their favorite cookie was because they are sweet and delicious. I think that they should have the cookies because if they like the cookies they should have them but they should at least make them more healthier for students. They should also bring like something healthy for students.

I agree totally with you because its true, they don't care about our health they want more money!!! So we should give us back our good food.

09/19/14
CeceliaBa-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author thought the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because it is the first major entry in a new product category since the IPad came out. It can also help out if you have the IPhone 5, 5s, or 5c.

09/19/14
KobiW-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The Apple company has upgraded new software, and new technology. So they are ahead on the phone business industry.

HayleA-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

Government can make more money by selling light houses and making them into actual housing. For long term reasons government wants limited number of light houses so they would dispose of federally owned lighthouses.

I think that the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because it is a one-of-a-kind product. They have never used anything like it.

09/19/14
BriannaM-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The author seems to think that the Apple Watch was the "star of the show" since it's a new gadget from Apple other than a phone, tablet, or ipod.

09/19/14
JamiG-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think that Apple Watch was the "star of the show" because Apple wants to be like everyone else and try to make it better than Android. I think the watch is dumb because you can use your phone instead of a smart watch.

09/19/14
NatalieK-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The Apple Watch is the start of something amazing. This watch allows us to use our phones quicker and easier than ever before. With the easy touch I think I would want one too. The only thing I don't like about it is THE PRICE!

AshantiQ-Hen School’s favorite cookie banned from cafeteria

I disagree they should not take this yummy cookie away from the cafeteria because everyone should at least have a treat once in a while. I understand that having this cookie everyday isn't good for the students because it has so much calories and the school is trying to give the students healthy food. If I was one of the students at this school I would make an argument about this.

09/19/14
AngelicaGC-Hen School’s favorite cookie banned from cafeteria

I strangely strangely disagree with the school because I think they should keep the cookies, because they are so good and they should give them out on holidays days or special days. There for I am very angry that they took them away.

09/19/14
LukeT-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

Everyone has seen a new iPhone but the watch is the next big thing. Even though the new iPhone is very cool no one has seen a Apple Watch. I think the iPhone is very cool and the watch is to. The watch is new tech and everyone wants new things.

MackenzieL-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

if I owned a lighthouse I would put a slide in it and make it for me and my friends as a fun house. it would be super colorful with music and lights and challenges light secret passages and water balloon fights.

CadenBo-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

They help the government by taking them because there's less to keep track of.It also allows the government to get rid of federally owned white houses.

09/19/14
AlysonW-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits in selling the lighthouses in a short term effect by their going to be gaining money. By long term effect people might want their own private island. But over time there wont be any islands left.

09/19/14
JanelG-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think the Apple Watch is the "star of the show" simply because it is a new product. Sooner or later it's going to get old for everyone and it will be the same popularity as the IPhone, if not less. I don't see it being super big in the future, but we'll just have to wait and see.

09/19/14
ChapinG-Hen Dog-cycle?

Yes, i think this a dog cycle. the reason why i think that is because the dog is missing it's back legs and it needs a thing to help make it walk and run so there is goes.

09/19/14
KaylaA-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

I think they called it the ''star of the show'' because it is brand new. Also because it is smaller and you can wear it. I also think because of the digital crown.

09/19/14
SamanthaR-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I think it would be cool to have a lighthouse and be able to have the beach just outside. It would also be cool to see all the ships that pass by.

09/19/14
SavannahSe-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I think that they will benefit by selling them. It gives them the opportunity to make and collect money. Then again, there are almost too many lighthouses. It would also be cool to live in one and walk outside and be by the water.

09/19/14
KaylaL-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling the lighthouses in the short term because they earn more money from old sources. The long term benefit would be because they don't have to spend more money fixing them since they wont be in possession of them anymore.

09/19/14
ZoeS-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government is earning money from selling these lighthouses. They short term they make money, but the long term is they will still be getting money but they are not responsible of them anymore so if something happens to the lighthouses then its the owners responsibility.

09/19/14
NathanC-Moo Two new, bigger iPhones – plus a watch!

The apple watch is a totally new invention so automatically it is cooler. The iPhone has been around for a while, but the watch is new.

09/19/14
MackenzieR-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The benefit from selling the lighthouses for short term is that the government can have more room to put more buildings up. Also it is safer for people because if it tumbles over, people could get injured badly. The benefit from selling lighthouses in the long term is you might save money for heavy maintenance and for injuries from the lighthouses.

09/19/14
JamieE-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling the lighthouse because of technological advances and a desire to purge unneeded properties have paved the way for the federal government to get rid of more than 100 lighthouses over the last 14 years. This is the long term one.

This is the short term one. They have paved a way to get more than 100 lighthouses over the last 14 years.

09/19/14
RyleighB-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling the lighthouses in both short term and long term by making lots of money by holding auctions for selling lighthouses. The long term benefits are that the seller of the lighthouse, won't have to worry about taking care of the lighthouse and spending a lot of money to repair them anymore.

09/19/14
CeceliaBa-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

Some of the short term benefits is that they are making money auctioning off lighthouses, and the byers will have to fix up the lighthouse if it needs repairs. Some of the long term benefits is they will not have to worry about the lighthouses the people bought., and the lighthouses will be preserved.

09/19/14
KarleeP-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I myself have never thought about buying a light house. I've never thought of living in one either. Wouldn't the room be small? It looks like the lighthouse is too narrow for living space. Why do people even buy lighthouses? They are just giving the government more money for something they can't really use. Yeah they could turn it into a hotel or museum, but that is paying more taxes to the government, in my opinion I wouldn't buy a lighthouse.

09/19/14
AustinA-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I think the government do benefit from the lighthouses because they get a lot of money from taxes but I myself haven't ever thought of buying a light house

09/19/14
JackB-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

I think they benefit by getting more money and don't have to pay taxes on the property in the long term. The short term is some people can get free houses.

09/19/14
AlecB-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government gets money and tax dollars by people buying lighthouses, but later on the government has to do something if the people who bought it just leaves it.

09/19/14
KateyN-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits in the short term because they are selling something that is not being used for a big chunk of money, so they are probably gaining a profit. The long term benefit is that the government is no longer responsible for the maintenance of the lighthouses, so people can privately maintain them as historical landmarks.

09/19/14
LexyH-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

Some short term benefits would be not having to worry about selling them anymore, some long term benefits would be that they don't have to take care of the lighthouse.

09/19/14
BriannaM-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling the lighthouses in short term by earning money and in the long term since they don't have to worry about a ton of lighthouses since they no longer belong to them.

09/19/14
EmmalyR-Moo You can buy a lighthouse. What would you do with it?

The government benefits from selling the lighthouses in the long term because they get to dispose of the federally owned lighthouses for free to preservationists. When they give the lighthouses to the preservationists maybe they can make it into something helpful. The government will also benefit because they will make some money.

When the government sells a lighthouse they get paid for it. This would be a short term benefit. When they give away lighthouses they still receive taxes when the lighthouses are turned into hotels, museums, or homes. This is a long term benefit.
