5. The modern Olympics is very unlike the ancient Olympic games. Individual events are
different. While there were no swimming races in the ancient games, there were chariot
races. There were no female contestants and all athletes competed in the nude. Of course,
the ancient and modern Olympics are also alike in many ways. Some events, such as the
javelin and discus throws, are the same. Some people say that cheating, professionalism,
and nationalism in the modern games are a disgrace to the Olympic tradition. But according
to the ancient Greek writers, there were many cases of cheating, nationalism, and
professionalism in their Olympics too.
6. Today, an old skinny man sits alone on a park bench. People passing by fail to recognize
that his dusty and tattered hat quietly rests on his rounded head. Thin, grey straw-like hairs
poke their way from under the brim of the dusty, tattered hat waiting for someone to gift him
with a simple glance. Two contemplative eyes calmly speak of hope even though hope
seems to pass him by. From under a broad and wrinkled forehead that looks like a farmer's
ploughed field he silently searches for even one gentle smile.
7. My experience in the nature study area was full of surprises. First of all, many unexpected
creatures crossed our path. For example, as soon as we left the parking area and entered
the grassy path, a long snake slithered along the edge of the high grass and quickly
disappeared. In addition, I was surprised by how colourful the grasses, which from a
distance all appear to be green, actually are. Specifically, the primarily green landscape is
dotted with countless purple tassels and brown stalks. Finally and most importantly, I was
unprepared for how quickly I felt surrounded by nature. Despite the occasional noise from
passing cars and airplanes, the high prairie grasses and rolling pathways create a sense
that one is removed from civilization. Altogether, the nature study area unexpectedly allows
one to enjoy an ever-changing natural environment without leaving Moraine's suburban
Fast food is convenient when in a rush, but people should not eat it too much or too often.
Recently, Mcdonald's featured a two dollar deal: Big Mac and small fries. It was very
tempting, and my son (who doesn't normally eat at Mcdonald's) bought this meal last week.
What is the nutritional content of a Big Mac and fries? The hamburger contains 570 calories;
almost half (280 calories) come from fat. Ten grams is saturated, the most dangerous and
harmful to our heart. The Canadian Food Guide recommends that we "choose lower-fat
foods more often." My son also ate a small serving of fries! Unfortunately, a small serving
contain 210 calories, with 10 more grams of fat (1.5 grams saturated). He bought a drink as
well, which adds another 150 calories (small size). Imagine, he eats this dinner more than
once a week! This two-dollar meal contains enough fat that, over time, can be very
damaging to health. So, although fast food is very convenient (and cheap) to buy, it includes
substantial fat- so I think I'll go and eat an apple, instead!

1. Happiness is a complex emotion that can be felt in many ways. It can come from the
senses: the sight of a smile on a child's face, the smell of flowers in the air, the feeling of the
sun on one's face, or the sound of music. Happiness can also come from basic necessities
such as food for the hungry, a blanket for the cold, and a drink for the thirsty. More lasting
emotions can give rise to happiness, too. This is true, for instance, of love of parents,
brothers and sisters, husband or wife, and love of all mankind. In essence, happiness
comes from being in accord with life and its experiences. When such happiness is achieved,
it can bring great peace of mind.
2. Next, put the dry cake mix into your large mixing bowl. Then, put the prescribed amount of
water, oil, and eggs into the mix. Then, with the electric mixer or mixing spoon, mix the
batter until it is smooth and free of lumps. Next, grease the large cake pan with the
shortening. If you wish, you can wrap your fingers with wax paper to keep them from getting
greasy. Then, flour the pan lightly. If you do this over the garbage can it will be easier to
clean your work area later. Next, pour the cake batter into the cake pan, using the rubber
spatula to scrape all of the batter off of the sides of the bowl. Be sure the batter is level in
the pan so it will rise evenly. Next, place the cake on the top rack of the oven and bake for
the amount of time specified on the box, the time is usually around thirty minutes. While the
cake is baking, clean up your work area.
3. It started as a normal lunch break, with Josie and Ginny standing together in line.
Suddenly, Tommy Pederson ran up behind Ginny and snatched her glasses off her face.
Everyone began the chant as they carelessly tossed her glasses down the line. I
watched Josie's face as it was happening. There seemed to be an anger beyond normal
6" grade capacity brewing behind her eyes. Tommy Pederson had gotten the glasses
back and was waving them around in the air. That's when it happened. With one hand
Josie grabbed the glasses from him and with the other she punched him in the face. She
hit him with such force that he fell over. Everyone froze in shock for a second until
Tommy screamed "Get her!" There must have been 15 different students who rushed
toward Josie. She held the glasses up as if to protect them and looked panicked until
she made eye contact with me. "Josie! Here!" I screamed, gesturing that she throw me
the glasses. She tossed the glasses to me, and miraculously, I caught them. She then
faced the students who were rushing toward her. She skillfully defended herself by
knocking them down one at a time as they approached her. She stopped fighting only
when no one else dared move toward her.
4. An asthma attack is known to be caused by an allergy. Exposure to allergens will trigger an
asthma attack. The most common allergens are dust mites, pollen, animal fur or dander,
and feather pillows. The only way to prevent an attack caused by an allergy is to avoid the
allergen (Microsoft Encarta "Asthma, Bronchial").
