Brazil surfer breaking wave record

Jack Jordapic

This story is about a Brazilian man breaking the biggest wave surfed world record. Rodrigo Koxa surfed an 80ft wave. Rodrigo was rewarded the Guinness World Record. Winning the award was the best thing in the world for him becuase he is the son of a famous surf boarder who surfed a 65ft wave.

That humans are always pushing limits.

That this person honored his family and is now a famous person.

What article is about:

1)How Fortnite got the idea of having battle royal mode to get people to play.

2)What age groups can play the game (8-81)

3) what purchases are inside the game for Epic Games (the group that made Fortnite) to make money

Some lessons from the article: Some lessons are that it is appropriate for most ages and good for playing with friends

1 important sentence is :The million dollar question, of course, is will Fortnite’s popularity last or will it suffer the same fate as Pokémon Go" because that decides if fortnite is popular for a long time or only for a year.

Title: What Homer's Illiad can tell us about worship and war


Site:BBC date: April, 27, 2018


author: Caroline Alexander




"The Illiad was composed around 750-700 B.C., but it's origins lie at least some 5 centuries later, deep in the Mycenean Bronze Age- the world the Illiad poetically invokes."


"Yet despite such unbashed acts of divine magic, the epic works hard to be realistic. The Homeric similies, for example, envoke the familiar, verible, natural world."


"The description of battle tactics and wounds are similarly believeable (if not wholly anatomically accurate), as the careful description of the Troad, the region around Troy"

lessons we can take away: If we can find this much about the Illiad, what can we find ab out the Odyssey?

Important sentence: "The Illiad is keenly aware of it's role as the keeper of memory, and credibility is central to it's storytelling." This is important because the Illiad keeps the memories of war and worship alive.

1.  Iran nuclear row: Tehran says Israel's Netanyahu lied

3 I couldn't find one?


  • Iran said it never sought to build a bomb when it signed a international deal in 2015
  • Minister Javad Zarif said that Mr Netanyahu was trying to influence Mr. Trump whether he would stick to the deal.
  • It seems they got caught red handed lying about a important part of the deal

5. lessons that we can take away from this article is even if people make a deal doesn't mean they will never stay true to it.

6.Iran said it had never sought to build a bomb when it signed an international deal to curb nuclear activity in 2015. they signed this but they lied.

  4. The article is about Amazon Prime members getting free kids books, it is also about getting more books out there, and finally it is about customer appreciation
  5. That reading books is important
  6. "Amazon has a new offering tailored to parents who want more convenient, kid-friendly content for their family," I think this sentence is the most important because it gives kids books.

1. Why pristine lakes are filled with toxins


3. Melissa Hogenboom

4.The article is about the environment. It is about how some of the most beautifal places on earth are loosing their appearance because of things humans could be doing.

5.The lesson is that we should preserve what we have. It is that the lakes could never revert to how they were an we should care about them. 

6. The most important line is "Collecting this debris wasn’t the team’s main goal, says Montserrat Filella from the University of Geneva. Instead, they wanted to assess whether chemicals emitted from these plastics were harmful."This is important because it shows what the lake had.

What is the article about? (minimum of 3 facts) At least 9 diseases has been discovered from ticks and mosquitos since 2004. More Americans are living close to forests that have ticks and mosquitos carrying various diseases and live on the deer that are in the forests. Most of the diseases have no vaccines or antidotes, so an outbreak can only be stopped with something expensive such as mosquito control.


What lessons can we take away from the article? Protect yourself against diseases and ticks and mosquitos so you can stay safe. Vaccines also help, so take them.


What one sentence from the article is most important? Why? "Ticks spread Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, babesiosis, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, rabbit fever, Powassan virus and other ills, some of them only recently discovered" because it shows how much ticks can carry and to watch out for them.

What is the article about? 1) On Monday, Three people attemted to illegally enter the United States. They abandoned a black duffel, inside of which lay a 4-month old male tiger cub. 2) The cub appeared to be sedated and now resides in the local zoo. 3) Apparently this is not the first time this has happened, earlier this year a US teen was sentenced to 6 months of jail for attempting to smuggle a six week old Bengal tiger club from Mexico.

What is the most important sentence of this article? The most important sentence is probably the first one because it tells you what the article is about.
