The story about seasons:

One day, the seasons had an argument. Each one of them said, “I am the best!”

Spring said, “I am when flowers bloom and it is green and fresh everywhere. Birds fly and insects have fun with new flowers.” 

        Summer said, “Yes, but I am when the sun shines brightly and it feels too hot to do anything. People eat ice-cream, enjoy cold drinks and eat yummy watermelon. 

        Autumn said, “I am when trees shed their leaves and cover the earth in orange brilliance. The air feels cool.” 

        Winter said, “I am when people wear woolen clothes, caps and gloves to keep their bodies warm. They get to drink hot chocolate. Birds fly south for the winter because it’s too cold.” 

Since they couldn’t decide who was best, they agreed that they were all important because one could not do without the other.

How false news can spread by Noah Tavlin

In previous decades, most news with global reach came from several major newspapers and networks with the resources to gather information directly. The speed with which information spreads now, however, has created the ideal conditions for something called circular reporting. Noah Tavlin sheds light on this phenomenon.

Can you answer these questions?

1. What makes circular reporting ‘circular’?
2.Which of the following has NOT directly contributed to an increase of circular reporting?
3.Why might the anti-vaccer movement be considered a product of circular reporting?
4.Before the 20th century, because it took longer to publish writing, it was more accurate.
5.Which of the following is NOT an example of circular reporting?
6.What are some ways you can avoid falling for false information, and avoid contributing to the cycle of circular reporting?
7.What makes circularly reported facts so difficult to correct?
8.Circular reporting isn’t limited to large-scale media and news. How does circular reporting apply to rumors and gossip?

Write on

Does everyone who publishes any writing—even if it’s on their personal blog—have a responsibility to cite their sources and be factually accurate? Or does this responsibility only apply to professional writers published by well-known publications and websites? Why or why not?

How are you going to use your blog this year ?

Les protozoaires

Les protozoaires sont unicellulaires, de forme ovale, sphérique ou allongée. Ils peuvent avoir un diamètre de 1 à 2000 µm (2 mm, donc visible à l’œil nu). Certains sont mobiles, grâce à l’action de cils, petits accessoires ressemblants à des cheveux, ou de flagelles, structures semblables à des fouets. Leurs mouvements sont rapides et prompts et attirent l’attention lorsqu’un échantillon d’eau est observé au microscope.
