When Marissa and Sammy are walking back they see the lady that got robbed. so they go up to her and tell her that Sammy saw the guy in the window. she was surprised but didn't seem super worried. then the store they were in, the guy that works there, was fighting with her and then found out that she was a girl they have all heard about.

Past vs Present


Hi grandpa can I talk to grandma, I need to ask her some questions. “Sure”. Hi grandma I need to ask you some questions for a project at school, “ oh okay”! I was facetiming her right before dinner, but she lives in Colorado and it’s an hour later than us so I had to do it early. She looked tired and was holding the camera funny in a way I can only see half of her face.

Hi Grandma! “Hi honey back with more questions”? Yeah my teacher said i didn't have enough information to write a story about it so I  need to ask you again. “Okay” this was about a week later, when Mr. Coward checked our notebooks I didn’t have enough information so i went home that same day and interviewed her right away so I didn’t forget. My grandma was happy but as i asked the questions she seemed a bit tired. She has blond, short hair with a little wave to it, she’s pretty quiet, and she didn’t say a lot more than before but enough for me to write a paragraph.
What did you do after you got home from school each day? She hesitated for a minute trying to think back, then went on. “ well I walked home with my friends everyday, about eight blocks, I had lots of homework but got it done at a fairly goodtime, it took me well about two hours.” in the morning she got to school around 7:30 and got home around 3:30, she didn't do after school activities so it worked out good.
When you and your friends hung out what did you do? “Well usually in the winter we would go to the nearest pond, which was about  mile 1/2 and skate! We also went sledding and had snowball fights. And in the summer they occasionally went to the pool, but not often because it was far. they went horseback riding, made up own games, mostly just hung out and talked and just do “girl stuff” as my grandma would say.  but the most things they did together was have sleepovers, they had lots of them.
What was your first job like? “Hmm let me think, well my very first job was babysitting, I got paid pretty good for starting at age 14, and babysitting preschoolers” so were the kids good, did you like them? “Yeah i liked them, they could be stinkers but but usually good, i liked the job too.” most nights she had to stay at the kids houses till midnight, she only did it on weekends because she had school during the week.
Were interested in school, sports, or your social life? “W-what do you mean.”well when you were a kid which was your favorite? “Oh, well no one really payed sports back then,only the boys, so I only really played sports with my friends at school because i went to a private school.” okay hold on I’m still writing, Alright so what about school, did you like it? “Um no not really, the only reason i really liked school was I got to be with my friends, me and my friends were really close. Oh and we didn't have sports in grade school, but we did in high school, but like i said before we didn’t have a lot of options, and most were for boys.”
What did you and your family do in your free time? “Well we didn’t do much but we always ate as a family, and talked about our day, work and weekend plans.” so were you close with your family? “ yes, very close, i was only 10 ½  months older than my sister, so we did more things than with my brother because he was way younger. We went and did a lot of stuff with my family like we went, bowling, to the movies, but we always went to church on sundays, and visited my grandma. Even though i had a lot of good friends, and i was close with them, me and my family never went over to my friends houses as a family, me and my friends just hung out.”
I learned a lot for this interview, from learning about my grandma's past vs how she lives now. Her life in the past wasn’t much different it the sense of her and her friends. She has gone on trips in the past with her friends, because she loves to travel. And soon coming up she going on another trip with a bunch of her high school friends. Something i was surprised with is that she didn’t play any sports, because she seems like a girl that would play a sport like tennis, also i'm surprised that sports weren't popular back then because now sports are very popular. I was really interested in hearing about what her job was even though she didn’t say much, I didn’t know that babysitting was her first job. But overall learning about my grandma's past was super interesting and looking at her now is really cool to think about.

        The risk of children getting cancer can happen, because their nervous systems are still developing and, therefore, more vulnerable to factors that may cause cancer.  Their heads are smaller than those of adults and consequently have a greater promotional exposure to the field of radio frequency radiation that is edited by cell phones.  Kids also have the potential of accumulating more years of cell phone exposure than adults.

cell phones and cancer risk

         There are many reasons why people have concerns about cell phones causing cancer because phones emit radio waves a form of non-ionizing from their antennas. Tissues nearest to this antenna can absorb this energy. Over time, the number of cell phone calls per day, the length of each call and the amount time people use cell phones have increased.  However, improvements in cell phone technology have resulted in devices that have lower power outputs than earlier models.

          Today for my KBARR I decided to do it on chocolate because who doesn't love chocolate?! some cool facts is that chocolate comes from fruit trees, from the seeds, but it takes about 400 cocoa beans to make 1 pound of chocolate. Also each tree produces  about 2,500 beans.  Research to date supports that chocolate can be enjoyed as part of a balanced heart-healthy diet and lifestyle, which is funny because I've been told all my life that it's candy and not that great for you. Approximately 3 million tons of cocoa beans are turned into chocolate products each year!
