As a company whose mission is to democratize publishing, we believe strongly in helping everyone in our community make their voice heard regardless of their political affiliation. So we’ve teamed up with HelloVote to make it easy to register for the upcoming elections in the US — right here on WordPress.com.
Introducing a quick, easy way to register
The election might be mere weeks away, but it’s not too late to register. HelloVote is a sleek voter-registration tool that allows any US-based visitors to your site to register to vote or check their registration status. If you activate the tool, anyone from the US will see a small box at the bottom-right corner of your site where, by entering their phone number, they’ll be able to complete their registration (or verify they’re already registered) in under a minute.
The tool will be automatically disabled on October 12, when…
I would like the authors to please check the revised and updated Rules For Authorspage, and review my expectations for you as members of the Kiranmathew community.
Some of you may have noticed we had an author named THE CHIEF BLOGGER who disobeyed several rules on his first post. Thankfully I was visiting the blog at that time and removed the post, as well as the author.
The four cases are spread across Canada. There are two in British Columbia, one in Alberta and a newly disclosed case in Quebec, all of them involving recent travel, Dr. Gregory Taylor (right) said.
While mosquitoes are the main source of transmission, Mr. Tayor says there are other possible ways to transmit the virus. He says there is some evidence of mother-to-child transmission, although there are few reports which state so.
1. What is Zika and why is it so serious?
The Zika virus is a flavivirus, part of the same family as yellow fever, West Nile, chikungunya and dengue. But unlike some of those viruses, there is no vaccine to prevent Zika or medicine to treat the infection.
Zika is commanding worldwide attention because of an alarming connection between the virus and microcephaly, a neurological disorder that results in babies being born with abnormally small heads. This causes severe developmental issues and sometimes death.

Lego League started at 8:00 AM and will end at 6:00 PM. This post is one of many that I will start to write called “Live Feed” posts. That means that I will constantly update it.
Anyway, continuing on Lego League:
The day is organized into sections; we competed to get the most points at 9:15, 10:40 and 12:30. We also showcased things for the judges, like when we showed them our robot design, programming, and when we showed them our invention.
The theme was trash, so we had to create an invention to help solve the problem. Our team created a machine that goes into the ocean to take away the trash using a vacuum, thus protecting animals that have gone endangered because of trash.
During the awards ceremony, my team (the Pollution Warriors) won the Team Spirit Award, for cheering on other teams.
This time, our topic is: HOW WAS LANGUAGE DEVELOPED?
I keep thinking, how was language developed? I mean, it’s not like one person could have walked up to another person and said, “Hey! I just invented a new word! It is called ‘word’! It means a word!” because there would be no way to communicate that!
It has left me puzzled for quite a while, and I still haven’t figured it out.
That is the purpose of the DIVINGDEEP/THINKINGDEEP series, to ponder abstract thoughts.
If you read my earlier post about the massive title change for my newest installment in the “Jack The Fourteen-Year-Old Wizard” series. The book is NOW: “Josephine Lamanson Learns Magic”. I changed the title because I felt like I wanted to make Josephine the main character.
Anyway, the book is almost finished, and will soon be released! I estimate it will be about another month or two, depending on how much I get done.
I advise you to promote the book: tell your friends about the blog and post on social media using the tag: #JosephineAndTheGangIsBack!
After the Minnesota Boychoir completed ‘Home Alone in concert’ with the Minnesota Orchestra, those who had come to watch left, after lovingly congratulating me on an amazing performance (a small video here).
In more depth, visiting was my Aunt Jaime, Ammy and Appy (my father’s parents), Nana (my mom’s mom) my Uncle Tom and my cousins Katlyn, Kabryna and Braydon.
A few days after everyone left, Aunt Jaime sent this to my mom:
One, he spelled ‘because’ right. I can’t even do that without spellcheck!
Many people are aware about our trash problem, but most people aren’t aware how much it affects out environment. 2 years ago, the green sea turtle nearly went extinct, but thanks to extensive conservation efforts from the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge, the green sea turtles are better.
