Class of KidsPost: St. John the Baptist seventh-graders want to fly like Harry Potter - Washington Post

Monday, September 26, 2016

But Dad got the most votes, narrowly edging Mom. One student said her dad “shows me how to always see the best in people.” Famous names mentioned included Rosa Parks, Leonardo da Vinci and St. Teresa of Calcutta.Favorite website: No contest here. YouTube was the clear favorite, with 13 votes. Google captured three votes for second place. Instagram and TMI Source, a Cassandra Clare fan site, tied for third.If you could go on a trip anywhere, where would you go? A class trip to Europe would be appealing to these students. Thirteen students mentioned traveling to the continent, including stops in Italy, Germany and Britain. Down-under destinations Australia and New Zealand tied for second place.Favorite birthday food: A party for this class definitely should feature pizza (eight votes). Cake and ice cream — or an ice cream cake — would also bring smiles to their faces. But a crowd-pleasing party would also include mashed potatoes, cheesecake, steak and baby back ribs.If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Nearly one-third of the class wants the power to fly. One student said he would use it to travel the world. Other desired powers included shape-shifting, teleporting, super-speed and mind reading.What do you want to be when you grow up? It’s not surprising that some of the soccer fans would like to be soccer pros. Four kids are considering that career. Three kids each mentioned marine biologist, veterinarian and teacher as possibilities.What is the biggest problem in the world today, and what can kids do to help solve it? These seventh-graders were aware of many problems in the world. The two mentioned most often were war and terrorism, and global warming and pollution. To help stop the violence, they urged fellow students to “spread awareness of why war is harmful and unneeded.” To solve environmental problems, they suggested recycling and carpooling. One student wanted kids to take “an hour or two of their day to go to a beach or a different place with a lot of trash and pick some of it up.” Many are doing just that Saturday, September 17, for the 30th anniversary of International Coastal Cleanup.

Making a home for lone soldiers fighting for Israel - Jewish Journal

Monday, September 19, 2016

Near the cabinet, empty beer bottles and handles of alcohol line up like trophies on a shelf above the kitchen sink. A stack of magazines, including a Rolling Stone featuring a cover story about Leonardo DiCaprio, sits at the end of a bench next to a dining room table, within reach of a rifle with a scope latched to the top of the weapon.The gun belongs to Levi. Eyes red, cheeks flushed, Levi (who, for security reasons, asked his last name not be included in the story) enters the Beit Shemesh house wearing his green Israel Defense Forces (IDF) uniform on a recent Sunday afternoon. The 19-year-old from Pico-Robertson is a member of Tzanhanim, a paratroopers unit, and he now lives in this house; he’s been in Israel since the summer of 2015, when he arrived in the country on a Birthright trip and never left. Levi immediately makes himself coffee and reflects on why he joined the Israeli army instead of the American military.[Want to join the IDF? Three paths to service]“I don’t think the [American] cause is as important as the Israeli cause. In America, we’re good, but in Israel, we’re fighting for our existence here,” he says. “I love the U.S. military, but they definitely need us more here.” Levi is one of 12 male soldiers living in the Beit Shemesh Home, and one of more than 6,000 lone soldiers currently serving in the Israeli army.Levi, a lone soldier fro...

A Magnet for Titanic Fans in an Unexpected Graveyard - New York Times

Monday, July 04, 2016

What in the WorldBy ELI ROSENBERGPeople have flocked to the small headstone for years, leaving flowers and love notes at what they believe is the final resting place of the man who inspired Leonardo DiCaprio’s doomed character, Jack Dawson, in the 1997 film “Titanic.” And you can see why: The inscription reads “J. Dawson died April 15, 1912.”Not quite, though. While the grave does belong to a victim of the world’s best-known shipwreck, he was not a handsome artist named Jack who won his passage in a poker game, but an engine-room worker named Joseph who probably had little time for onboard dalliances. The producer of the film denies any connection between the crewman and the fictional heartthrob.Mr. Dawson is one of 121 people from the Titanic buried at Fairview Lawn Cemetery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, their graves arranged in the shape of a ship’s hull. It is the largest collection of Titanic graves in the world. An additional 29 are buried in two more local cemeteries.This somber stewardship came about largely by chance: Halifax happened to be the closest major port with good rail connections when the ship sank, 700 nautical miles away in the North Atlantic.Three ships se...

Vivian of Lincroft; 2 daughters, Daniella Penta and her husband Victor Wymbs of Oakhurst, Gabriella Heizler and her husband Gregory of Island Heights; 2 brothers, Mario Penta of Colliano, Italy, Leonardo Penta of Bayville; a sister Maria DeVito and her husband Dario of West Long Branch; a brother-in-law, Leonard Kroen and his wife Jill of Pinehurst, NC; and 3 grandchildren, Landon Franco Penta, Max William Heizler and Mia Annabelle Heizler. Franco considered all of his customers to be an extension of his beloved family, especially all of the police officers and firemen he considered friends. He loved Monmouth Park Racetrack, Fiorentina soccer and his walks on the Long Branch boardwalk. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandchildren. They always brought a special twinkle to his eye, a hop to his step, and a smile to his face.Visitation will be held on Wednesday, June 8, from 4-8 pm at the Damiano Funeral Home, 191 Franklin Ave., (corner of Third Ave.,) in Long Branch. Funeral, Thursday, 9 am at the funeral home followed by a 10 am Mass at Star of the Sea Church in Long Branch. Entombment will be at Woodbine Mausoleum in Oceanport.
