Good morning room 16 students. Gender-based violence included any form of behaviour – psychological, physical, and sexual – that was based on an individual’s gender and was intended to control, humiliate, or harm the individual. Gender-based violence was often targeted at women and girls. This type of violence could include physical assault in a relationship, sexual assault, or rape. It can also include things like having your rear end pinched in the hallway, having your top pulled down or lifted up, or being held down and touched. This week, Time Magazine named the brave people who recently spoke up against sexual assault and sexual harassment as the 2017 “People of the Year.”

Magandang umaga room 16 students. The conclusion of story the Woman Who Outshone the Sun reminded me of the movie the Dark Knight Rises. In the movie, Batman was beloved by Gotham City citizens. Similar to what happens to Lucia, citizens began to fear Batman and forced him into exile. However, when the evil character Bane took over the city, the people of Gotham realized they needed Batman and searched for him and ask for him to come back to save them. This is similar to when the townspeople asked Lucia to return after the river vanished, which left them with no drinkable water.

Daily Edit: Their/There/They’re

Good afternoon room 21 students, their/there/they’re are some things in life that everyone continually works on. For example, self-regulation is something we all continually work on, whether we are aware of it or not.  Their/There/They’re will be trying circumstances that test our limits from time to time.  If we are able to recognize when we are becoming less regulated, we are able to do something about it to feel better and get ourselves to a better place.  Their/There/They’re are some lucky people who can self-regulate more naturally than others.  However, for others it is a skill that needs to be taught and practiced. This is the goal of the Zones of Regulation. Learning about the Zones helps students to become more aware of, and independent in, controlling their/there/they’re emotions and impulses, managing their/there/they’re sensory needs, and improving their ability to problem solve conflicts. Their/There/They’re is an interesting video clip to watch below this paragraph. Please watch the clip and try to determine which zone their/there/they’re in.

Daily Edit: Their/There/They’re 

A homonym is a word that is said or spelled the same way as another word but has a different meaning. The words their, there and they’re are a good examples of a three homonyms. Please read the below paragraph and insert the correct their, there, or they’re.

Hello room 29 studentstheir/there/they’re are many reasons to learn about the Zones of Regulation. First of all, the Zones of Regulation help people identify their/there/they’re level of alertness, understand how their behaviour impacts those around them, and learn what tools they can use to self-regulate.

As we have learned, their/there/they’re  are four zones in the Zones of Regulation. These zones can be compared to traffic signs. When given a green light or in the Green Zone, one is “good to go”.  A yellow sign means slow down or take caution, which applies to the Yellow Zone.  A red light or stop sign means stop, and when one is the Red Zone, this is the case.  The Blue Zone can be compared to the rest area signs where one goes to re-energize.

All of the zones are expected at one time or another. And their/there/they’re you have it, you now know a little more about the Zones of Regulation.

 a team of researchers from purdue university in the united states has found a way to use pesky packing peanuts to make rechargeable batteries. When Professor Vilas Pol and his research assistants were setting up their new laboratory, they found the boxes the equipment came in were filled with hundreds of little polystyrene pieces known as packing peanuts.

packing peanuts are a popular and effective way to protect all sorts of fragile items, including TVs dishes glasses and computers, when they’re being moved stored or delivered. Unfortunately, most packing peanuts eventually end up in landfills where they can take decades to break down. When they do break down, they contaminate the soil and water with chemicals and detergents.

Professor pol      a chemical engineer     asked his team to help find a better way to dispose of old packing peanuts. The scientists discovered that when they heated the peanuts in a very hot furnace      between 500 and 900 degrees Celsius     they turned into a carbon-based material that could be flattened into very thin sheets. These microsheets can be used to make anodes, a key part of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. (The anode is where electrically charged molecules called lithium ions are stored when a battery is recharged.)

Anodes are usually made from graphite. however, anodes made from recycled packing peanuts are cheaper to make, less harmful to the environment, and work better than traditional graphite anodes. lithium-ion batteries are used in many electronic devices, including smartphones laptops cameras and even electric cars. anodes made from packing peanuts could be ready for commercial use within two years.

Scientists at nasa (the National Aeronautics and Space Administration) announced last fall that they have found evidence of liquid water on Mars. the discovery has given scientists new hope that some form of life might exist on the planet. scientists believe that Mars once had rivers lakes and oceans, but they thought that any remaining water was now frozen solid in polar ice caps.

dr. alfred mcEwen studies photographs of the planet’s surface taken by a NASA spacecraft that orbits Mars. He and his team of researchers noticed that in some of the images there were dark streaks running down the sides of mountains and craters. The streaks changed in size shape and colour depending on the time of year. they were longer and darker in the summer, and faded when the temperature cooled. the scientists thought the streaks might be caused by water freezing and thawing as the seasons changed.

They used another instrument on the orbiting spacecraft to study the streaks. The instrument, called a spectrometer, can identify types of molecules based on which colours of light they absorb. The spectrometer told them that the dark streaks were patches of soil containing hydrated salts, which are salt molecules that have soaked up water. salt molecules would help keep water liquid at a lower temperature, in the same way salt helps to melt ice on sidewalks in the winter here on Earth. scientists believe water is necessary for living things, so they thought mars was too cold and dry to support life. now they think it’s possible that some form of microscopic life could exist in these damp patches of soil.

Recently, a scientist discovered a type of frog that looks a lot like Kermit. Kermit the Frog is a Muppet. Miss Piggy Fozzie Bear Gonzo Beaker Rizzo the Rat the Swedish Chef and Rowlf the Dog are the names of other well-known Muppets. Kermit the Frog, the most famous Muppet, has bulgy eyes and is a special shade of green.

The new frog found in Costa Rica looks a lot like Kermit. It has big google-eyes with black pupils that sit on the top of its head, and it is a uniform shade of bright lime green, similar to Kermit. Just about the only thing it’s missing is Kermit’s signature pointy collar. (And Kermit’s ability to speak, of course.)

The recently discovered frog is a type of glassfrog. It has been named Hyalinobatrachium dianae, after the mother of one of the scientists; her middle name is Diane. Glassfrogs get their name from the way their tummy looks. Many of them, including this new frog, have translucent skin on their stomach. This means that you can see through it. You can see some of the frog’s organs including the heart and liver.

there are cute robots. there are helpful robots. there are unhelpful robots. and then there are ones that will cause people to shriek because it’s a mechanical version of a cockroach! the cockroach may sound like an unpleasant inspiration for a robot. but consider its charms: the insect is small, fast, tough and capable of squeezing into tight places.

a group of scientists in california have found that cockroaches can stick their legs out to the side and compress their bodies to the height of a couple pennies. they also found that cockroaches can withstand being crushed by 900 times their body weight and live to tell the tale.

a young scientist named kaushik Jayaram took this cockroach knowledge and built an inexpensive robot capable of splaying its legs and lowering its body. it even has a bug-inspired plastic shell that makes it look like a cross between a cockroach and a pill bug. The robot model has the adorable name “cram,” which stands for “Compressible Robot with Articulated Mechanisms.” The prototype’s flexible shell and legs allow it to continue moving forward at a fast clip, even when in a tightly confined space. jayaram hopes that one day swarms of these robots can be used at disaster sites. he believes they will be able to squeeze through rubble to look for survivors.

the denver Broncos won football’s ultimate prize on sunday: the Superbowl. It was the 50th anniversary of the big game that is held every year at this time.

The final game of the year–this year it was between the Broncos and the Carolina Panthers–on “Superbowl Sunday” is something that many people get very excited about. They often gather together to watch the game, devour special food like nachos or chicken wings, and root for their favourite team.

even the commercials and the “half-time show” — a special concert held during the break in the middle of the game — get people excited.

The Broncos beat the Panthers 24 to 10 in what was arguably not the most exciting game in NFL (National Football League) history. The game was won more by a great defense than by a great offense, according to some commentators. That means that the Broncos were successful in preventing the Panthers from scoring. Then, when the Broncos were able to score, they pulled ahead. the Broncos’ defence was led by von miller, who was later named the game’s “Most Valuable Player,” or MVP.

it was a big anniversary for the Superbowl (the 50th) and a big win for Broncos quarterback peyton manning–his 200th career victory. Some people say that he may retire after this, but he hasn’t yet said what he intends to do. in this case, “retire” means stop playing football professionally after a long and successful career.

However Japan had argued that the suit brought by Australia was an attempt to impose its cultural norms on Japan. It said Japan had caught some 3,600 minke whales since its current program began in 2005 but the scientific output was limited. Over the years Japan has clashed repeatedly with Australia and some other western countries which strongly oppose whaling on conservation grounds. Japan has argued that minke whales and a number of other species are plentiful and that its whaling activities are sustainable.

Daily Edit: Insert the Missing Commas

On Sunday rescue and recovery teams continued to comb the ruins of the small community of Oso, north of Seattle, where 30 people reported missing are believed to be buried. The avalanche of mud, trees and rock that swept through the location after heavy rains on March 22 was so powerful it obliterated homes and vehicles and transformed the landscape. Teams using their bare hands heavy equipment and dogs have so far extracted more than two dozen bodies, including one on Saturday. The official death toll was raised to 21 from 18 on Sunday night, Snohomish county officials said after identification of the more recent discoveries. However the number of people believed missing fell from 90 to 30 on Saturday as lists were cross-referenced and duplications eliminated. Finding and identifying all the victims could take a very long time and not everyone may ultimately be accounted for, authorities said. This weekend the Seattle Times wrote about the day the disaster occurred and described the harrowing details of a sleepy Saturday morning shattered by trees breaking and falling and thundering down the mountainside in waves of mud – a total of 7 million cubic metres, equal to 545 football fields.

It’s the close calls like this one that make you appreciate life a little more. an unfinished apartment complex caught fire in houston on tuesday where one unlucky construction worker found himself trapped on a balcony of the top floor. the fire at the apartment complex, which was still under construction, eventually spread through the entire building.

As the flames viciously claimed the top floor of the building, an employee at a neighboring office captured the whole thing on camera, including the construction worker’s daring escape. the glass from the windows behind him was literally melting, forcing him to make a decision. he had to get out of there, or he was going to go up in flames as well. panicked and stranded on the balcony, he decides to jump down to the balcony of the suite just below him to evade the growing flames.
finally, the firemen realize they must get a fire ladder to this man so that he can get down. problem is, they can only move the ladder at a snail’s pace, while the fire is burning faster by the second. the ladder reaches him, he climbs on, and we can all breathe a sigh of relief — until the roof collapses from above. the roof begins to fall from one side and is headed straight for a fireman and the rescued construction worker who just dodged a fiery death. luckily, they are far enough from the building that they are unscathed by the falling debris. It took fire fighters more two hours to get the fire under control. Shockingly, no one was hurt.

Katheryn Deprill says she felt “pure joy” after meeting her biological mother this monday. Twenty-seven years after being abandoned in the bathroom of a burger king in Allentown, pennsylvania when she was just a few hours old, katheryn Deprill finally met her biological mother monday after recently launching a social media campaign to track her down.

The birth mother — whose identity has not been revealed — got in touch with attorney john Waldron after seeing the news coverage of the photo that Deprill posted on facebook on Mar. 2. her plea has been shared more than 33,000 times.

Nicknamed “Burger King Baby,” Katheryn Deprill, 27, told a local newspaper that, “The first thing I got was my hug that i wanted.” She said that seeing her mother was “pure joy” and that the two look so much alike that it was like “looking in the mirror.”

Hello room 29 students, the families of passengers aboard malaysia Airlines Flight 370 have been told the plane went down in the southern Indian Ocean. some got the shaking news from a phone call, others received a text message from malaysia Airlines telling them to “assume beyond a reasonable doubt” that their relatives did not survive. others heard the news in person at hotels in beijing and Kuala Lumpur, malaysia, around the time malaysian Prime Minister najib razak made the announcement at a monday press conference.

“they have told us all lives are lost,” a missing passenger’s relative briefed by the airline in beijing, china said. that news gave an official explanation of what happened to the plane, a mystery that captivated global audiences for more than two weeks.

Hello room 29, a husband and wife struck gold last month… in their backyard. the man and woman were walking their dog on their property in california when the woman noticed a strange looking, rusty can in the ground. they started digging, and eventually uncovered eight metal cans. the cans were full of gold coins–1,427 of them. it turns out that the coins are very valuable. In fact, they’re worth more than $10-million. according to Wikipedia, it’s the biggest discovery of its kind in U.S. history. the coins date from 1847 to 1894. they are $5, $10 and $20 coins that, if taken at their “face value” (in other words, the amount of money stamped on them) add up to $27,980. but being old and rare, they are worth much more than that today. many of the coins are in “pristine condition,” which means they look almost as good as the day they were made and aren’t damaged. one of the coins is known as an “1866-S No Motto Double Eagle,” and is worth about $1-million. no one knows where the coins came from, or how they ended up buried in cans. the couple told CNN (a news network) that they plan to sell most of the coins and to give some of the money to charity. they will use some of the money to pay off their house and property.

The disappearance of malaysia Airlines FlightMH370 has exposed the technological limits of satellites, which can see a licence plate from space — if not necessarily read it — but struggle to find a missing jetliner. these limits are shaped by physics, money and practicality. you see, military and commercial satellites are not closely observing and amassing data about the blank places on the map in lightly traveled seas — such as remote areas of the Indian Ocean thousands of miles from where Flight MH370 vanished from radar. however, satellites may yet prove to be triumphant in this baffling case. there is tantalizing imagery of possible debris from the missing plane that has been made public by australian officials. it’s unclear what’s in the images. the primary object, if it is an object and not some trick of light, was seen on March 16 — eight days after Flight MH370 disappeared — in the southern Indian Ocean about 2,000 km west of perth, australia.

Hello room 29 students, Wheel of Fortune has seen its fair share of amazing puzzle solving. but on last night’s broadcast, a contestant named emil put most other players to shame. emil’s bonus round featured a three word phrase, but when none of his proposed letters showed up on the board, he was left with pretty much nothing to go on. “you’re a very good puzzle solver, but this looks tough to me,” noted host Pat Sajak. not that tough — Emil solved the puzzle within seconds, mostly by some insane guess work, appropriately freaking both himself and sajak out. (I don’t blame Pat for jokingly patting Emil down afterwards and making sure he hadn’t cheated.) if that wasn’t enough, his win netted him a $45,000 prize. call it a fluke, call it skill, but whatever you call it, Emil is one lucky guy. check out the video featuring Emil’s amazing win below.

Hello room 29, all of the major american television networks have come calling to canadian chris Goodfellow for his theories on the disappearance of malaysia Airlines Flight 370,  and he continues to turn them away. instead, he updates his Google Plus blog and watches for more clues. goodfellow is a mcGill University economics graduate with an MBA from Cornell. he’s also a former Class 1, instrument-rated, multi-engine pilot who was licensed to fly in all weather conditions and used to fly his own high-performance aircraft.

goodfellow said he posted his thoughts because he was concerned the search wasn’t taking place in the right area. he sees the possibility of an on-board fire making more sense than terrorism or pilot suicide. perhaps a fire on board was started by a cargo of improperly stored lithium batteries or poorly inflated tires, he notes. the pilots would have searched for the nearest available airport to make a night landing. that would explain a 90-degree turn toward the island of Langkawi, where there is a long 4,000-metre runway. goodfellow thinks the pilots were likely overcome by smoke and the plane just continued on the heading on autopilot until either fuel exhaustion or the fire destroyed the control surfaces and it crashed.

Good morning room 29 students, reports of a cougar in Innisfil had half a dozen elementary schools taking precautions this afternoon by keeping kids in for recess. news of the cougar sighting spread quickly through innisfil today. concerned parents were calling police, schools, and the town asking what was being done to keep kids safe. while kids played inside, police investigated the sighting and it turns out, the children’s safety was never at risk. “We tracked down the individual, who believed they saw the cougar. that same individual took photos of some footprints left in the snow. those photos were sent to the MNR and they deemed them to be either a canine, dog or a coyote,” says Sgt. todd ferrier with South Simcoe Police. while this was a false alarm, police say they want residents to call them if they have concerns about an animal or if they spot wildlife that is out of the ordinary.

Bonjour room 29 students, for many years, archaeologists have wondered why the people who built Stonehenge – a prehistoric monument in the south of england – used huge rocks that came from more than 300 kilometres away. now, a team of researchers believes the rocks may have been chosen because they produce musical sounds. stonehenge was built between 3000 BC and 2000 BC, during the Stone Age or Neolithic era. archaeologists think it was originally used as a burial ground and temple. recently, a team of researchers from the Royal College of Art in london went to the Preseli Hills to study the visual and acoustic (sound) properties of the landscape. they found that there were many “ringing rocks” in the area – rocks that make a musical, bell-like sound when struck with a small hammerstone. a hammerstone is a rounded rock that fits easily into the hand and was used as a tool by early humans. one of the researchers, paul devereux, said that many prehistoric cultures around the world thought that stones that make interesting sounds were very powerful. they believed ringing rocks or caves with echoes were the homes of spirits.

Good morning room 29 students, and happy St. Patrick’s Day! Sometimes, things on the Internet seem too good to be true. That’s when people may starrt to challenge them, asking qeustions to figure out what’s real and what’s made up. That is what happened when a video showing people riding a “hoverboard” recently went viral. (In this case, viral means the video was shared and seen by a lot of people). The video was possted on a website by a “company” called HUVr Tech. (It wasn’t a real company.) The video shows celebreties including famous professional skateboarder Tony Hawk riding a “hoverboard,” similer to the one used by the main character in the movie Back to the Future. In the video, Hawk is presanted with the “hoverboard” by actor Christopher Lloyd, who playeed the professor in the Back to the Future. It’s temmpting to believe that there are such things as “hoverboards.” However, it wasn’t long before people started questioning the video. People slowed down the video so thay could look at it more closely. Some people said they could see wires holding up the “hoverboard” and Tony Hawk. Others said that in one part of the video it looked like Tony Hawk is weering a harness under his shirt, which would connect to wires to hold him and the board up in the air.

Good morning room 29 students, they may loouk like guts stuffd in clearr plastic, but five fish hauled up from near-recorrd depths off the coast of New Zealand are providing scientsts with new insights into how deep fish can survive.

In a paper publshed this week in the Proceedings of the Natonal Academy of Sciences, scientists from the U.S., Britain and New Zealand describe catching translucent ‘hadal’ snailfish at a depth of 7 kilometres.  The snailfish have little pigmentation due to the lack of lihgt in their environment, hence their translucent apperance.

The fishe are the second-deepest recordewd catch. In 1970, a boaat off the coast of Chile reported catching an eel at a depth of 8,370 metres in a trawl net, although questions remaine whether that fish was caught at the oceann floor or highr up as the net was hauled in.

Hello room 29 students, omagine climbing all the way to the top of Mount Everest—the tallest mountan in the woorld — and when you get there, the summit is littered with garbge. Over the years, exhausted climbrs have left things like empty oxygen tanks, tent poles and food containers at the summmit. There are even parts from a helicopter that crashed on the mountain in 1974. Exprts say there are about 50 tons of garbage on the mountain. Nepal’s government wants the mountain cleaned up within five years. So starting in Aprl, climbers going up Everest will have to bring at least eight kilograms of garbage back dowwn with them. And that’s in addition to their own trassh. When climbers come down the mountain, they have to hand over their garbage to be weighedd to make sure they have brought enough back. Climbers who don’t bring back enough garbage may facce a fine or they may not be allowed to climb the mountain in the future. In 2011 and 2012, 65 people brought eight tons of trash down from the mountaiin and gave some of it to artists, who created scullptures with it. The garbage-sculptures were put on display, to help bring awreness to the mountain’s trash problem. Last year, 658 people clibed to the top of Mount Everest.

Hello room 29 students, last sunday was hollywood’s big night. the annual Academy Awards (known as the “Oscars”) recognize the best movies, actors and movie-makers of the year. four of the top awards are Best Picture, which went to the movie12 Years a Slave; Best Actor (matthew McConaughey, who starred in Dallas Buyers Club); Best Actress (cate Blanchett, who starred in Blue Jasmine) and Best Director (Alfonso Cuaron forGravity). the evening was hosted by comedian and talk-show host ellen DeGeneres. Awards shows can be boring, with each winner thanking a list of people that most viewers don’t even know. since the Academy Awards has millions of viewers who want to be entertained, the host’s job becomes very important. deGeneres did a good job bringing the glamorous actors and actresses “down to Earth” and making them seem like “regular people.” at one point, she even handed out slices of pizza to the actors in the crowd—and then she took up a collection from them to pay for it. she also took a “selfie” photo of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including jennifer Lawrence, meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, brad Pitt and kevin Spacey.

When to use Apostrophes

Rule 1

Use the apostrophe with contractions. The apostrophe is always placed at the spot where the letter(s) has been removed. Examples: don’t, isn’t, He didn’t tell anyone. He’d won a lot of money You’re right. She’s a great teacher.

Rule 2

Use the apostrophe to show possession. Place the apostrophe before the s to show singular possession. Examples: one boy’s hat one woman’s hat  one actress’s hat  one child’s hat  Mr. Smith’s house

The operator was taken to a nearby ambulance. Police said **** confident that all the other construction workers at the site were safe and accounted for. The official cause of the fire has not been released.

He helped bring about the elimination of “apartheid” in South Africa. Mandela died on December 5 at the age of 95. On Sunday, he was given a state funeral, in his home village of Qunu, followed by a private graveside ceremony. It was fitting that **** was both black people and white people on hand to carry his coffin. Mandela fought for the rights of black people in South Africa and to end **** separation from white people in his country. Mandela was South Africa’s first black president, in 1994. Prior to that **** was a time he had spent 27 years in prison for his political activities, fighting for the rights of black South Africans. His funeral included many modern traditions as well as tribal African traditions. Associated Press reported that Chief Ngangomhlaba Matanzima, a representative of Mandela’s family, declared, “A great tree has fallen; he is now going home to rest with his forefathers. We thank them for lending us such an icon.” The burial ended 10 days of mourning for Mandela, including a memorial service on December 10, which was attended by many of the world’s leaders and celebrities. **** is an interesting video clip to watch below this paragraph.

Guten Tag room 29 students, officials at Canada Post is phasing out their/there/they’re  home delivery services. People, particularly those living in urban areas (cities), won’t have their/there/they’re mail delivered directly to their home. Their/There/They’re going to have to do what most people in rural areas already do — get their mail from a “community mailbox.” Canada Post says about two-thirds of people in Canada already get their/there/they’re mail this way. It will be about five years before home delivery is completely phased out. The elimination of home delivery service is one of a number of things Canada Post is doing to save money. Canada Post says the move will save them $400 to $500 million. As more people use their/there/they’re electronic devices to send e-mails, fewer people are using “snail mail” (traditional mail delivered by mail carriers). Canada Post delivered a billion fewer pieces of mail in 2012 than it did in 2006. Canada Post is also increasing  their/there/they’re prices for stamps. A Canadian stamp, for a standard envelope, will cost $1 or $.85 if the stamps are bought in bulk (meaning, bought in a booklet or a roll of stamps). Currently, a Canadian stamp costs $.63. The price of stamps will go up on March 31. But don’t plan on stockpiling stamps in anticipation of the price increase.

A person may be described as happy, focused, content, or ready to learn when in the Green Zone. The Blue Zone is used to describe low states of alertness, such as when one feels sad, tired, sick, or bored.  If someone is able to recognize when we are becoming less regulated, then their/there/they’re able to do something about it to feel better and get ourselves to a better place. Their/There/They’re is an interesting video clip to watch below this paragraph.

First of all, the Zones of Regulation help people identify their/there/they’re level of alertness, understand how their behaviour impacts those around them, and learn what tools they can use to self-regulate. As we have learned, their/there/they’re  are four zones in the Zones of Regulation. These zones can be compared to traffic signs. When given a green light or in the Green Zone, one is “good to go”.  A yellow sign means slow down or take caution, which applies to the Yellow Zone.  A red light or stop sign means stop, and when one is the Red Zone, this is the case.  The Blue Zone can be compared to the rest area signs where one goes to re-energize. All of the zones are expected at one time or another. And their/there/they’re you have it, you now know a little more about the Zones of Regulation.
