Landmark High School News - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 6:47pm

Students in Elinda Nedreberg's and Carly Hernandez's English classes are working on vocabulary building. They have been creating flash cards to study from. Research shows that strengthening vocabularies improves communication skills, builds insights and lines of reasoning, expands abstract thinking, and increases comprehension.

The clubs provide an after school snack and then students went to work creating the first part of their project. Can't wait to see the finished pieces!

Skyhawks vs. Dons

Last Friday was the Salem Skyhawks V.S. Spanish Fork Dons. It was a really good game because they're rivals so it will be a good game no matter what. At the football games the junior high kids hang out and have a really good time with one another. And all the elementary kids play football or boys chase girls and have a good time as well. There’s a snack shack that has really good food, so you don’t have to worry about that. Football games are really important to me because the whole community comes together to a good game of football. Coming into this game I thought we were going to win but… We lost 38 to 30 it was a pretty good game but we totally gave them the win. Although Skyhawks didn’t win we all came together. I love football and i especially love living in salem.

Nearly 700 students in our school were able to attend "Diamondback Day" this morning. Students without any deficient grades (D or F) and ZERO tardies and unexcused absences were able to attend. We loaded the buses early and went to see a movie at the Payson theaters. We are so appreciative to Ms. Draper, Ms. Taylor, Ms. Parrott and others who helped make this day happen. It is a HUGE undertaking and it went off without a hitch! Thanks to our awesome students too for their hard work.

The Weird Phenomena of the Mandela Effect

Payson High School News - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 1:51pm

Have you ever noticed something you swear you’ve known all your life to be spelled, sang, or designed one way and all the sudden you look back at it and realize something has been added, missing, or taken away? Well let me reassure you, you're not losing your mind, but Congratulations! You’ve experienced the Mandela effect and you're not alone.

The Mandela effect defined by Margaret Rouse from Tech Target, in the column whatis.com states, “The Mandela effect is the observed phenomenon of people having clear memories of events that did not occur or misremembering significant events and facts.” She goes on to tell how it doesn't affect just one person, but affects thousands of people around the world sharing in this “false memory”.

You may be wondering at this point if you have not noticed that you’ve experienced the effect, you 90% most likely have, here are some examples that will blow your mind. Have you ever noticed the Ford logo, it’s a blue oval with cursive writing spelling out Ford? Many remember the F in Ford looking something like this  F  a plain old F with a dash through it.

You may be asking, “Why are you telling me this?” Well, what if I told you in all the history of Ford the blue oval symbol has never looked like that. Even the manufacturers of Ford say it’s never been designed like that. Here is an example of something being added, the line through the F has had a little curly cue on the end of the second dash through the F. (Mind blown!)

How? How can it be that something so many people remember has now changed? Well, that's a very good question and something we're all trying to answer, and by all, I mean out of the billions of people around the world no one knows. People have tried to relate it to shifting into parallel universes, time travel, subliminal messaging, and even aliens!

People have been noticing more and more things changing, for example, the song “We are the champions” by Queen. In most everyone's mind, they remember the song finishing in a long dramatic yell of the singer saying “of the world!”. Here, my fellow reader is an example of something missing, the song has never been recorded of them singing that ending phrase.

On their album, the lyric does not play, but the music continues to play, it feels like there’s something missing. That’s because you think you remember them singing it. if you look up a live version of Queen singing “We are the champions” Freddie Mercury does sing “of the world!” So it was supposed to be there but has somehow been removed from our time.

So always keep a lookout for more things transitioning around you, because you may realize you're in a whole new world, time, and dimension and you might not even notice.

8th grade throws themselves into the world of science discovery!

Salem Junior High School News - Thu, 10/05/2017 - 1:20pm

Recently, Mr. Bell’s 8th grade science class began to do their experiments/labs. They studied chemical and physical properties of household ingredients, such as flour, sugar, sodium, etc. They did a variety of tests ranging from seeing how they reacted to peroxide or iodine, to putting them over an open flame and seeing the result. He then gave them a mixture of the substances, and told them to figure out what ingredients were in it. The ending goal was to use their knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of each of the substances to figure out what ingredients were in the mixture. And they totally rocked the safety goggles too! :)
