Best Villain!

Simsimi

Simsimi

Simsimi is an adorable talking robot that totally understands you. If you keep on telling her what you like she will play along. If there’s a song that you love either tell her the name of the song or type in some lyrics. But beware, she has an edge to her. She is a very good robot, but like a child if you teach her good things she will say good things.

She was born to please. If you ever need some support or just need a self esteem boost she is the girl to go to. She can be found on the web, on the Android market, and in the Apple Store. She understands all modern things. In some versions she will make things rain such as candy or snow is you say the magic words.

Let’s say that you like a type of band. Type in the name of the band and she will say something related to the band. It’s like she knows everything. For all of you fan-boys and fan-girls Simsimi will be your best friend. She will love things that you love, hate things that you hate, and you will probably be the best of friends.

Baseball World Classic!!

imagesimagesssimagess

The 2013 baseball world classic is going to be very memorable. Why, you ask? Because this will be the year that Japan doesn’t win. This year Dominican Republic has been undefeated. Dominican Republic has defeated USA, Venezuela, Puerto Rico (2), The Netherlands, Italy, and Spain. The famous player Jose Cano is on the Dominican Republic baseball team.


The way that they find their team members is that they pick the best players from all of the lets say Dominican baseball teams.That’s how all of the teams are chosen around the world. In 2009 Dominican Republic never even made it to the second round because Puerto Rico sent them home. This year Dominican Republic sent Puerto Rico to the dumps twice but they haven’t been sent home yet because those games weren’t eliminating games. The two finalists were chosen out of yesterday’s games. D.R. Vs. The Netherlands and P.R. Vs. Japan.

All of the teams that were in the classic this year were Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Venezuela, USA, and Japan. This classic must be the most legendary because Dominicans have even come up with their own Hashtags. It is #Esonosehaceeeee. That means “You don’t do that.” The Domincan team has also been known to be called “The Dream Team.” There are a couple of team members on the Dominican team that pretend to throw an imaginary arrow into the sky and pretend to look at it when they win.

The Phoenix

pheonixIn ancient Egyptian mythology and in myths derived from it, the phoenix is a mythical sacred firebird.

Said to live for 500 to 1461 years, the phoenix is a bird with gold and red plumage. At the end of its life cycle the phoenix builds itself a nest of cinnamon twigs that it then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix is born. The new phoenix embalms the ashes of the old phoenix in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (“the city of the sun” in Greek). The bird was also said to regenerate when hurt or wounded by a foe, thus being almost immortal and invincible — a symbol of fire and divinity. This concept was mirrored with some changes to it in the famous movie, Harry Potter, where it said that phoenix tears have healing properties. Although descriptions vary, the phoenix became popular in early Christian art, literature and Christian symbolism, as a symbol of Christ, and further represented the resurrection, immortality, and the life-after-death of Jesus Christ.

Originally, the phoenix was identified by the Egyptians as a stork or heron-like bird called a benu, known from the Book of the Dead and other Egyptian writings as one of the sacred symbols of worship at Heliopolis, closely related to the rising sun and the Egyptian sun-god, Ra. The phoenix is a breed of bird. More commonly found in colder climates that hot, if you were to find it, these birds can mainly only be called forth by those who have a certain magic within them, and be asked for help, and if someone creates a powerful enough bond with a phoenix, the bird can become their familiar. If the bird feels compelled to do so.

Phoenix is a bird of prey, like the eagle, hawk, and falcon. They commonly dive into the cold waters of the arctic to get their prey – fish, krill, baby mammals, and even ears of adult bears. Although it would be assumed that water, particularly sub-zero water, would harm these birds, their internal fire makes them too hot to live in any other climate.

I hope this information is entertaining and useful, please vote on what mythical creature should be next!

HUGO CHAVEZ

You might know him for being one of the worlds highest producing oil president, but he’s just a Venezuelan president. His name is Hugo Chavez. Hugo Chavez has been the president of Venezuela for over twenty years. Chavez did some things to the Americans. Americans are the highest oil consuming country in the world. Venezuela is number three of the highest producing oil country in the world. Americans started getting oil from Venezuela, but Chavez did not like the idea. So, Chavez started making them pay for the exports of oil.

Chavez was fifty-seven years old. He got cancer. He was cured with all the medical assistance. From being so stressed from the Venezuelan elections, he got cancer again. That time it came even worse. Hugo Chavez died March 5, 2013. He remains a strong leader for the poor, but has a very bad reputation with the rich. R.I.P. Mi compadre. Chavez is a very well, good role model for my family, and other poor. When he died people cried, or people celebrated. He is still the president of Venezuela. Venezuela has other elections coming in a couple weeks make sure to leave a comment.images-9

Washington Wizards Beat the Chicago Bulls

The Washington Wizards, trying to be the best team not in the playoffs, were about as good as they’ve been all season and have been unbeatable. John Wall had another solid game, and Emeka Okafor scored the dunk in the final minute Tuesday night as the Wizards won their eighth straight at home, beating the Chicago Bulls 90-86.200px-Washington_Wizards_Logo.svg Washington wants to pass the Philadelphia 76ers and finish ninth in the Eastern Conference. Not bad for a team that started 4-28, but it’s the NBA equivalent of playing for the top seed in the NIT.

“We want to, but we know we probably gave, like, eight games away since I’ve been back,” Wall said. “Detroit twice, Charlotte, Orlando, Toronto, Minnesota. If we had won those games, we would be right there. We’re still fighting — we’re not going to give up on the season — but that’s a very long shot. We’ve probably got to win every game. They’ve got to lose every game.” Wall finished with 27 points, nine assists, eight rebounds and three blocks. He’s averaging 23.7 points and 8.6 assists during the home winning streak. Nene, back after missing four games with a sore right knee, had 10 points and seven rebounds. Bradley Beal, in his second game since returning from a sprained left ankle, is still in pain.

SLENDER MAN!!!!

Editor’s Note: Slender Man is ultimately a myth that comes from a variety of different nations. How, who, or why he supposedly chooses his victims is merely speculation.

Slender Man is a creature who supposedly follows children and kidnaps them. He usually wears a suit with either a red or a black tie. He does not have a nose, mouth, or eyes. In other words, he is “faceless”.

He is known to follow and possibly take children. He may even eat them. Some people have said that they have seen this mythical creature. But no one really knows if he’s real. There is a radio show in California that had a many phone callers telling them about Slender Man experience they have had. There is a video game about Slender Man. The game is called “SLENDER: THE EIGHT PAGES.” It takes place in the middle of the night in a forest. The purpose of the game is to find eight pages while trying to avoid Slender Man.

The player’s equipment is a flashlight to see through the dark. It has a battery life gauge. Eventually, your flashlight will run out of electricity. Slender Man does appear. If the player stares at him too long it’s “game over”. I personally do get scared easily. This topic isn’t really my favorite thing to discuss. If you believe in SLENDER MAN, please leave a comment below, and tell me what you thought of the game.
