I decided to take the SNAP Challenge. I felt that it was really hard to limit my food intake each day to only what can be purchased with $4.50. Through this challenge, I found out that I ate differently. I ate less than what I would normally eat. I did make different food choices because I felt limited on what I can buy. Since I didn’t have much money to buy food, I would just buy the cheapest item at the grocery store. It wasn’t really an option to buy healthy choices because if it was outside of my budget, I wouldn’t even consider looking at it. It is really hard to go to a grocery store and buy food with a budget. I have tried it several times and I always end

It is unknown how many records were contained on the laptop, but all records were related to prostate services that were provided during an eleven year span.

The movie “Freakonomics” by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner was a great way to bring light into the science of economics. The authors Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner would give two subjects that are unrelated to each other to give viewers an understanding of Freakonomics. This was a great idea because I would have never thought that a teacher and a sumo wrestler would have anything in common. Additionally, in the beginning of the movie the authors mention three types of incentives, which are moral, social, and economics and how individuals learn to acknowledge them (Freakonomics, N/A). In this case, Levitt’s knowledge allows him to find cause and effect in data, “I like to explain how people get what they want,” he says. This
The significance of this triad is that they all relate to the “unlimited coinage of silver” in order to balance the economy during The Depression of 1893, which was overall unsuccessful because William McKinley (pro gold) won the election in 1896 and President Grover Cleveland made gold the main money supply of the nation.

If Cleveland had supported silver currency, the nation could have had more money

Draw eight different letter blends on a large poster board in big, bold letters. Explain to students that the point of the game is to throw the bean bag at the sound they hear in the word. Each child is allowed 3-4 tries; depending on the number of bean bags available. Use colorful tape on the floor or spray paint if outside to draw a line for students to stand behind when it is their turn to play. The “referee” will say the word and the student will throw the bean bag on the letter blend they hear. Each bean bag that makes it onto the correct score earns the student one point. The child with the most points after 2-4 rounds (depending on the number
