Introduction to the special issue: early literacy among monolingual and bilingual children - Springer | My Own Interest | Scoop.it
Evelyn Navarro's insight:

I personally thought this article was eye catching because I personally am a bilingual speaker. I started speaking English from a young age then grew to speaking Spanish later because i think i was forced to, i was in speech for a number of years because they assumed i was mute but more in fact i did not want to speak spanish to any one. but this article helped because im glad i was forced to speak spanish because its benefited me by taking spanish ap cources in high school now i don't need to take my time to take spanish courses in college. even though i have my spanish units done, i will be getting a minor in spanish for future reference especially because i am a business major student.

Man Attempts To Hug a Wild Lion. What Happens Next Stunned Me

Man Attempts To Hug a Wild Lion. What Happens Next Stunned Me | My Own Interest | Scoop.it
Kevin Richardson is a South African zookeeper renowned for being so intimate with lions that he has been accepted into several prides. What he tries to do may seem insane to most, but..
Evelyn Navarro's insight:
I was so astonished reading this article and watching the video! I have a great love for feline animals! Tigers of course are my favorite! But I think I have a great amount of love for any feline. I thought it was shocking that this man was able to raise a set of 3 lions from birth and have them raised so well to not attack him or anything. And then I was also surprised that these lions are soon to be extinct and no longer lingering Africa at all. While roaming around your usually in constant view of wild life animals but in this case there isn't many wild animals near by. Which actually to be honest made me a little emotional, how this species is not becoming extinct.

Woman indicted in Wisconsin newborn's kidnapping

Woman indicted in Wisconsin newborn's kidnapping | My Own Interest | Scoop.it
By RYAN J. FOLEY Associated Press IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Colorado woman was indicted Wednesday on federal charges alleging that she kidnapped her half sister's newborn from Wisconsin and left him behind an Iowa gas station in freezing weather.
Evelyn Navarro's insight:

When reading this article I thought it was shocking to hear that a half sister kidnapped her half sisters new born son. Even more shocking that her sister kidnapped the newborn while the mother was sleeping and when contacted she was driving through Iowa, where the mother of the child was in Wisconsin. This woman had the urge to not just escape town but the state with the new born.The conditions where the newborn was found were remarkable, temperature was below zero and the newborn was only rapped in a blanket and inside a plastic storage bin. Also to find out that the sister had a prosthetic pregnancy belly in her car, truly showed her actions of faking a pregnancy and kidnapping her sisters newborn to have it appear as her own.

It needs downloading - obviously - and I'm not sure I want all this on my computer yet.  I'll have to wait until I have a ground-breaking idea for my next online, budget Hollywood movie.

Evelyn Navarro's insight:

This article doesn't initially state anything, but the title caught my attention. " Teen romances". For me it gave me a reminder that these were movies audience to the young public more like US! We are the reason these movies are hit wonders we love watching cheesy teenage love stories that make us go "aweeee" and wish we we're the stars of that movie so tremendously bad. But sad story is none of these stories are ever in fact real.
