Melissa Cook, 14, had front row seat to a game that Novak Djokovic was playing at on Sunday. The world's No 1 (tennis player?) beat Rafaek Nadal after five hours, 53 minutes (Holy...that's a long game!) and while he was changing, Cook managed to get his attention while he was changing clothes. So he walked over to Cook and tossed her a spare shirt, but it was grabbed by a woman two seats away. Yeal Rothschild, a mother of three, has been identified as the woman who grabbed the shirt. And she's not giving it back to Melissa either. She insists it was fair game for any of the first row people.
But for Melissa, its a heartbreak, as Novak is her favorite player. She wanted the shirt to put on her "Novak wall". And from the video provided in the article, it clearly does look like the shirt was intended for her. Read the whole story and watch the video here.
Unnecessary Math Questions
The question read, "Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?"The spokeswoman for the school explained to the outrage parents that the teachers were trying to put social studies into math problems. She also agrees that the questions are not appropriate. To read the whole story click here.
Another math problem read, "If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?"
Another question asked how many baskets of cotton Frederick filled.
"Something like that shouldn't be imbedded into a kid of the third, fourth, fifth, any grade," parent Terrance Barnett told WSB-TV. "I'm having to explain to my 8-year-old why slavery or slaves or beatings are in a math problem. That hurts."
Sea Turtles, UNITE!
Jan Lempfrid went to the Phi Phi Islands off of western Thailand to a dive site called Malong where a video of sea turtles were giving each other high fives. I thought it was so cute, I just had to share it with you. The cute actions is at 0:13.
Aren't they adorable? I remember back in like, third grade I think, I was OBSESSED with sea turtles. I had a ton of books on them and I loved everything I could get my hands on about them. I was crushed when I learned I couldn't get one for a pet, and even more when my mom wouldn't let me have a just plain turtle.
So I moved onto hamsters (Hamtaro anyone?) I was also OBSESSED with these things for the longest time ever. I still kinda am. I had the little toys with their doll house sets and stuff, movies, stuff animals, coloring books, posters, board games, the two gameboy game I could find (heartbreak and the Olympic one), and books.
