The god I am doing is called Ares he is a Greek god. Ares seen as either a , bearded warrior dressed in battle arms, or a beardless man with helm and spear.At Athens he had a temple containing a statue made by Alcamenes. Ares was arrogant, aggressive, athletic, muscular and fit. This god had the power to start wars so people were careful about arguing.
I chose this god because he can bring death upon the world wherever and whenever. He can cause a lot of chaos that people don't want. So you have to be careful with Ares. I would respect this god because once again he can cause tons of deaths whenever he wants.His greatest strengths were being a strong man and causing chaos. His weakness is getting wounds and going to his mom Hera to fix them.

Crazy Man Makes Lighting Strike
Breaking news!!! Men sitting off the coast fishing were all zapped by lightning. Everyone saw the lightning suddenly strike the ground. Everyone lived in good condition without any burns. It was very loud and scared the whole city. It was unusual because it was a perfect sunny day at about 3:00. This was unusual because in LA there was barely any thunderstorms.
Witnesses say it was over 160 degrees in that area. One of the men that was shocked with lightning said “I saw some big man come out of the sky with a lightning bolt in his hand.” Most people saw it too they were all scared and all fled. All of the men fishing said they got a rush of adrenaline and were all okay after it. No one knew what the man was called so they called him Lighting Man.Everyone was frightened for themselves and wondered if other people saw it too.People were worried for others around that area. Everything turned out okay and everyone was safe. People just wondered what caused it and why. It came out to a Great story and was mysterious. Im Bob Karley and thank you for reading.

When Kit got to the school she felt the school itself was evil. She got in and was greeted by Madame Duret. Later another three girls came to the school, there were only 4 girls for the entire school. Kit had a dream that her dead dad came back and was there above her.

Lynda was an amazing artist, Sandy could write poems, Kit could make music and Ruth did math she never knew about. After that they all made hideous things with there talents. Stuff started to get weird. There was a blackout Kit was in the office Jules came so he could bring her back in the room they were all in. They found files of the old school Madame Duret had taught at before. There was 24 kids at that school, 4 committed suicide and the rest are all in a mental institute. They get back in the room, Jules tells Madame Duret they have to get out of there. She refuses because she makes a living out of what these girls hidden talents are. Ruth says there not giving it to her and she throws her book in the fireplace. There is now a fire. Blackwood is gone. Will they make it out?
I really like this book because of it's good structure. There is a cliffhanger at the end of every paragraph. There is so much suspense in the book and the dialogue plays a major roll in it. I would recommend this book to my friends because they like scary stories and suspense. The end is written so well it has a very good cliffhanger. I have to say this is o ne of the best books I have ever read.
I challenge you to read this book. Comment how it was if it was good or bad. No SPOILERS! Thank you for reading

Shel Silverstein was born on September 25th 1930. He was born in Chicago,Illinois. He died in 1999 in Key West Florida from a heart attack. He had a great desire to be popular among women and be a sportsman that didn't work out. That inspired him to be a poet. He was enlisted in the army in 1950. He was a musician and composer.
There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire--
He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.
With his seat in the meat
And his face in the fish
And his big hairy paws
In the buttery dish,
He's nibbling the noodles,
He's munching the rice,
He's slurping the soda,
He's licking the ice.
And he lets out a roar
If you open the door.
And it gives me a scare
To know he's in there--
That Polary Bear
In our Fridgitydaire.
I think he is talking about a person that is super hungry.It stuck out because we had to pick a poem in the 4th grade so I picked this one.I relate to this poem because some times I just want to eat everything in my refrigerator. There is no feeling to this he is just telling.
The rhyme scheme is a,a,a,b,c,d,c,e,f,g,f,h,h,i,i,j,j. The repetition is There's a Polar Bear
In our Frigidaire and That Polary Bear In our Fridgitydaire. The style is a rhyming poem. Using personification and alliteration would make this more interesting if it were a story.

See if you can find out how many poems SHel Silverstien made and comment them.

You can spend almost $300 for a $30 pair of shoes or jeans. Currently, people are arguing about whether brands should be over priced for no reason. I believe this is a good marketing tactics because Nike and Uggs are bought a lot. this is a great way to make money and they are higher quality.Also you get new shoes or a new popular game you will be considered “cool”.
Selling things like this is a really good way of marketing. If you overprice something and make it look cool everyone will buy it and it will make you good money. Even if it looks bad kids will buy it because its from Nike or from Uggs. If a smaller company makes better or the same shoes for 50 dollars less kids won’t but it because it’s all about the brand. Also if you have shoes that aren’t from a popular brand and you buy some you will never wear any other shoes. Companies are earning big money
They are higher quality shoes or merchandise. Not everything expensive is cheap. Most of the time you will get amazing material with shoe brands and clothes. You will probably not break them because of the material they're made of. Most of the jean material is worth 300 dollars or more. You are getting what you paid for. Although some companies have very cheap material and still make money off it.
You will have more friends and be more popular. It is true that if you have one of these cool brands you will be more popular. It works like this If you have a game like call of Duty one of the best selling games ever you will have more friends if you play it, at least here is how it is. So if you have cool Nike shoes you will have more friends. thats just how the new generation works.
Even though, they use good material it could still be 100 dollars then it usually is. Even though you can have more “friends” your parents might not have enough money for Uggs or Nike shoes. Also video games can be 60 dollars and consoles like the Xbox One can be over 500 dollars so if you want a game the total is $500 plus tax. Shoes like the Kobe 9’s are that expensive and it is worth it for a console but shoes maybe not. even though I prefer expensive brands i have to agree with these.
I think it is worth it to buy expensive brand shoes or merchandise. It is made out of good materialy,you are giving money to the company you like and you can become “popular”.It is good for companies it makes them more then 10,000,000 dollars a year. I think over pricing things is a good thing for companies and for customers.

Did Aliens Make the Easter Island statues? People wonder how the statues got there in the first place. Currently, there is an argument whether the statues on Easter Island moved by themselves or if people moved them. It is a mystery that most likely will never be solved. I think it moved by itself because there were few people and it was huge and heavy.
They would have never been strong enough to move it 1,000 feet. According to the article it was 33 feet tall and 80 tons. Also in the article it said they didn't have horses cars or wheels.No one knows how they got there. One more fat was that the rocks that they were built of were never on the Island.
Did a spaceship bring them there? No one knows because it was more then 1,000 years ago. People live there it is considered a part of Chile. Those people don't even know who it happened and over 5,000 inhabit there. It is scary because they could have been aliens.
I think they might have come from a spaceship or the statue had some type of alien power to move itself. Also the humans were very advanced because they knew how to plow crops. Also, they had to of had some alien technology like a truck because there was no way they could have gotten up the hill. I honestly think they had alien powers and they had very advanced technology.
My challenge to you is to make a theory about how they got there. You should send me a link to the theory. You can have your own opinion.
