  • The New York Mets worked so hard to get themselves another no-hitter for the first time in a decade. Last time was Johan Santana but this time was a combination of 1 pitcher and 4 reliever pitchers which I was not aware that was going to happen. I started believing that the Mets could possibly get no hitter after when Alonso got a Solo Home run in the 6th inning. It was great teamwork from Tylor Megill who opened up the pitch and played for 5 innings, Drew Smith, Joely Rodriguez, Seth Lugo and the closing pitcher Edwin Díaz who had 3 perfect strikeouts. It was a night to remember and fans at Citi Field as well.

    One thing I learned from no-hitter performance was always focused on you and maintain your performance so you can get better at the mistakes from your past. It was an incredible experience to see the Mets get to have another chance to make a historic night with the team playing and celebrating it together.

    Jeff McNeil’s Giveaway to helped the Mets get the Lead
    Pete Alonso’s Giveaway Moment to get the Home-run for this unforgettable night.
    Brandon Nimmo’s incredible catch for a fly out

    There was lots great achievements from this Mets Team like when it started with a moment when Megill started pitching for the Mets’ which only lasted for 5 innings because he knew that the team wanna keep their hopes to get another no-hitter. Brandon Nimmo had a great save for a fly out in the 3rd inning. Jeff McNeil swing into center left field to helped the Mets opened 2 runs while he got himself a Single in the 5th inning. Everyone give him a big smile to his fans especially Lindor in the dugout. Pete Alonso got a monster Solo Home run to give a Mets 3-0 lead against the Phillies during the 6th inning. During the 8th inning before Alonso got a fly ball out, Lindor passed to McNeil and Alonso to give the Double play which shows great team effort and power pass to keep the Mets’ no-hitter alive. When Edwin Díaz pitched for the closing moments, he got 3 perfect strikeouts and hyped up everyone at Citi Field and Mets Fans who witnessed History from their own TV. The team has walked 6 batters and struck out 12 batters to make another Franchise History. Some of players got splashed by Gatorade after the celebration so they can bring out the good vibes.

    Coach Buck Showalter’s giveaway with this tremendous performance by telling his teammates to work hard and physically focused on what matters the most to continue this terrific season. The lineup changes had cause a minor delay which cost time but however Díaz was able to get breathing moments to stayed focused and helped the Mets achieve another no-hitter. He said that it was a great night to remember and it show this team can do anything to score runs and win games. On the other hand he still get annoyed the the Mets Players keep getting by the pitchers when there team batted to swing the ball. The Mets has expressed their feelings out about bad luck or fouls that Major League Baseball don’t think about saying it is a big deal because that is very absurd.

    The New York Mets giveaway was that teamwork is the most important part of the game which it shows great characteristics from the players and the crew who helped the Mets live the moment. When this team created History, it also shows that they broke the record for the most pitch by the combined pitchers to team up while finished the game with 159 pitches which was incredible. If the New York Mets continue to use the great Performance of what there doing now, the team can have a greater of going to 1st place in the National League East Division and hopefully goes to the playoffs.

  • During the Holidays, the World was facing bigger challenges like running low on supplies, chip shortage, and other products for the merchants. People in low income communities and other who have trouble with fire financial or refused to leave the house because of the pandemic, local food pantry’s are planning to donate food for people in need. When the Global Pandemic destructed last year, people started asking for food drives because they don’t have food to but down for the table.The Pantry Workers got themselves busy and sell as much products to be delivered. This year we’ve seen a bigger issue with Food Supply Shortage because of the Shipping Crisis and food at markets surge the price up like 50 cents to $5.00 more than last year’s retail price sales. Some Stores are doubling up the prices because of cargo ship shortage and lack of manufactures, truck drivers and crew members helping out. The longer these cargo ships stay in the middle of the ocean while the traffic jams near the docks, Business Companies will not have a choice but to raise the price up or double the amount due to longer waits. In the meantime, Schools, Day Programs, and Local Charity Events hosted these events every year for the people who usually can’t afford to get food on their tables. because they don’t have enough to provide their families. This year, the Food Pantry is looking forward to work twice or triple the amount of time because of the food supply shortage overseas and that costs shipping companies to stay I’m the ocean and wait longer due to staff shortage which is a major problem with consumers in general.

    Assembly line of Trucks at the Docks

    During these troubling times, Essential Workers decide to put themselves on the line and help them get food into the donation pile but the problem with the supermarkets, there not going to have enough in stock which it means the food brand id going to raise the price up then more damaging to the consumers. The people in general are having problems besides food shipping delays like Gas price gone up fast, chip shortage to make brand new cars and the latest technology or manufacture has not been in made because of the Pandemic which means products are going to be more expensive then the last 2 years price. For the remainder of the 2021/2022 season possibly util 2023/2024, products will be in shortage of stock which is the first time that shipping or item shortage in 25 to 40 years. During the year of 2022, everything has gone far up with merchandise shortage and gasoline has risen the price a lot more than lasts year average for price difference. Now the Country is making all Essential Workers to get Vaccines because they wanted to them to be eligible to work for the company and have prove to go cross country and go overseas.

    The Real reason of Supply Shortage other than the Pandemic

    Russia and Ukraine War Conflicts with the Gas Stations going up, it used to be $3.00 to $3.50 now it risen to $4.50 to $7.00. Every product is going to cost more money which means some people won’t have enough savings for themselves and it would hurt the economy for another crash by society. Every warehouse in the factories could have some issues with shipping which it could cost more for shipping fees. The uncertainty of major breakdown with major damage sending supplies overseas and possibly face WWIII which means tempers could flare if matters are more likely going to get worse with other countries destroying their lives.

    Scott’s Sports Revues

    One of the most popular sports in Bolivia is soccer known as Futball.

    Volleyball and horse racing are also very popular.

    Other popular sports Bolivia enjoys are volleyball and table football, both of which can seen being played on street corners. Volleyball has increased in popularity as an alternative to football, as both can be played with just a ball. After marking the net with a string or cord, the game can be played on any surface.

    There are many other sports Bolivians like to practise or watch, including tennis, swimming, horse riding, gymnastics and car and bike racing. Notable exceptions are the sports of American football and baseball which despite many attempts have never captured the heart of Bolivia.

    Although they have not integrated themselves into football as yet, Bolivian women have integrated themselves into another male dominated sport. Bolivia’s native Aymara women fight lucha libre style.

    They are distinctive for wearing traditional feminine dress for their free range wrestling bouts, of lace petticoats, pollera skirt, shawl and a bowler hat over their hair which is plaited in two braids. The fighting women are called cholitas luchadoras and this practice of wrestling which began in 2001 has become more popular than traditional male wrestling.

    As a poor third world country with little prowess in sports, Bolivia has seen great motivation and inspiration from José Gamarra Zorrilla. A native Bolivian, who promoted value of sports throughout the country and the 1970’s led his country to the best sporting results they had ever seen.

    The Superbowl was hosted in Los Angeles for the 56th in NFL History. It was the Cincinnati Bengals vs Los Angeles Rams. I wanted the Buffalo Bills and the Green Bay Packers to go to the Superbowl which it never happened. It was also the first time that the team gets to host the event with their own stadium since last year from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers which they won 31-9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Not only that but the Los Angeles Rams gets to host the Conference Championship Game and the Super Bowl

    The match started with the Rams playing first which there was also the California Football League for Boys and Girls to create young kids playing football. The woman who hosted the coin toss was Billie Jean King which she advocates for young girls to play sports in USA history. The Rams got to play the game first. The Rams got to take the first touchdown which was credited from Stafford to Odell Beckham Jr. and Matthew Gay took the field goal . It was great, so the Rams took the lead 7-0.

    Then the Bengals took the Field Goal before the 2nd Quarter which the Rams took the lead 7-3. During the 2nd Quarter, the two teams were going neck to neck but the Rams got another Touchdown to Kupp. However, the field goal was blocked , so the Bengals got a good chance for another comeback. On the other hand the Bengals got another Touchdown which the bengals scored 13-10.

    When the Rays tried to scored the the touchdown at the 2 minute warning, the Bengals got the ball for intercepted the ball. The score was still 10-13 which put the 2 teams in halftime.

    Odell Beckham Jr with the catch for the Touchdown

    During the Halftime Show it was all of the Hip Hop Stars in Music History. It was Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Mary J Blind, Kendrick Lamar, Anderson Paak and Eminem which it was a sick show “out of nowhere “ like the real life of Los Angeles. It was Old School Legends in the world of Hip Hop.

    The show was skyrocketing with the insane backgrounds. The whole crew came for their final part of the show after everyone got their own show.

    The Whole Crew

    There was also a lot of funny commercials and upcoming surprises for movies, shows and other heartwarming moments.

    During the 2nd of the game , the bengals already got the touchdown and the Bengals took the lead 17-13. The Bengals took the field goal and took the Field Goal and took the lead 20-13. Halfway before the 4th Quarter, the Rams took another field goal and it was much better, still losing 20-16. During the 4th Quarter, it was still neck to neck with changing turns but the game was getting closer which it turns out that the Los Angeles Rams got the ball after 5 minutes on the clock left. other score at 5 minutes on the clock the team thought it could a touchdown but 2 fouls which disallowed the touchdown after a few tries, the Rams got a great pass to get the Tocuhdown and bring back the lead 23-20. The Bengals got the ball for one last time but couldn’t passed the last try after the 4th Down with 90 seconds on the clock but a great defense from Aaron Donald for the Rams.

    That’s how the game ended up with Los Angeles Rams taking the win and it was a great moment in Football History.

    The Moment when LA got their victory

    The winner of the Super Bowl is the Los Angeles Rams by sacrificing the team to step up even though they struggled parts of the game. However, they didn’t give up and showed some confident. This was the 1st time that the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl in History since 2000 when they used to be the St. Louis Rams. The MVP Player of the year was Cooper Kupp.

    This years Super Bowl was a rollercoaster ride for this one. There were times that the team did great but struggled at times but never give up on hope. There was also a lot of excitement after the game and social media moments was while after the celebration came to a close. To close out the game, the Los Angeles Rams was the best team in the NFL this season and never give up after slowly falling apart. The team effort was tremendous and above and beyond.

Half of the group went to the Gray Team and the other half went to the White Team. The Long Island Field Hockey Team was the Gray Team and the All Stars were the White Team. All of them each got a volunteer to partner up to help our teams to achieve what they can achieve something. Originally I thought that we would have 200 Teams around the nation with disabilities but it was only 200 teams for the Girls Field Hockey Team, so we created 2 Teams and the team in Gray is the Long Island Field Hockey Team which is me, Michelle, Rebecca and Paul. The White Team is the All Stars which the team has Anthony, Elouise, Gia and Adriana

    During the Match, there’s 10 Minutes in 2 half’s of the match. During the first half of the match, I was already got a head start but it was just short not too far from the goal. Then my teammate Michelle scored the first goal and took the lead 1-0. Not for long, Elouise got the first goal for the All Stars which it tied at 1-1. Then the teams did a lot of defensive moves time to time. Paul on the LI Field Hockey did a lot of help with the defence to not let the All Stars take the lead. During the 5 minute warning, I ran into the other side and waited for the goal and Michelle passed the ball to me and I scored the goal to help LI Field Hockey 2-1. Then the All Stars went to take immediate action and scored then second goal to tie it up 2-2. Before Halftime I ran the ball and I was going to score again but they goalie blocked my shot and the defense took the ball from me so I went back to center field and passed it to Rebecca and give it to Michelle and she got herself the 2nd goal which give LIFH to get back the lead 3-2 and it was halftime. Everyone had a water break and then each team huddle up to work on teamwork and continue to have fun while making history.

    During the 2nd half of the match, the Long Island field hockey was leading the All Starz 3-2. It was neck to neck for the first few minutes until Michelle got the goal to take the early lead with my quick thinking pass before I got out of bounds and helped the LI Field Hockey Team continued to take the lead 4-2. Then I scored before I put myself in an offside position which I got lucky to allow myself to get that goal when the ball rolled to me and scored. In the meantime, Paul and i did a phenomenal job with the defense and not let the All Stars scored like 5 times. The Defense on the LI Field Hockey was outstanding during the tournament so hopefully we can get ourselves promoted for the 2028 Paralympics. Before the match was done, the LI Field Hockey Team scored 2 more goals which it was credited by the whole team with outstanding creativity of teamwork. Once the Tournament was about to draw to a close, Elouise helped the All Stars got one more goal even though they tried their best to get the goals from the great defense. She got the buzzer beater goal and happily got the All Stars 7-3 but the Long Island Field Hockey won the Tournament which it was a fun tournament. We won 7-3 against the All Starz which it was a fun game to remember while making History for the Special Olympics.

    The winner of the tournament was The Long Island Field Hockey Team but it was about a fun tournament which hopefully one day more teams around the USA to increase Special Olympics Field Hockey. I like to remember the score just i can focus on track with the results especially in every Special Olympics Tournament.

    Afterwards we took a group picture with girls team who helped us and the team itself. Then I was interviewed by 2 people like Sally from USA Field Hockey and Valeri from Long Island Field Hockey. I talked about that I wanted to explain about Field Hockey which its popular from Europe, Australia and India but Wanted to expand the sport to the United States. It would be interesting if the Special Olympics was a reality besides the Girls Field Hockey. One day this sport will be huge for the 2028 Summer Olympics and the Paralympics. I can grow as a player for myself especially my teammates.

    On Wednesday, the Newsmakers completed our very first virtual tour to Disney World in Orlando Florida. We were shown the six parks, which I never heard of before. I was only familiar with a few of them and have visited Magic Kingdom a couple times with my family. As a Disney enthusiast, I would love to visit Blizzard Beach in person because it’s one of the recent water parks to be owned by Disney.

    The host of our journey was named Albani. She was very gracious and very helpful in answering all our questions. It was interesting to hear all about the differences between the different parks. We learned about each of them and two of them are waterparks!

    The 6 Disney Parks in Disney World:

    • Magic Kindgom
    • Animal Kingdom
    • Epcot
    • Hollywood Studios
    • Blizzard Beach
    • Typhoon Lagoon

    The Magic Kingdom is one of the most popular places in Disney World. It’s where the magic begins! Animal Kingdom is the safari park of Disney World. There are so many animals in this park. You can explore all the animals on a safari through the park. Epcot features countries around the world and explores this through rides.There is so much to do to discover the world and explore about these countries while learning and having fun with friends! Hollywood Studios is all about the rides with cool thrills and you can see memorabilia from different films like Toy Story and Star Wars. Lastly, Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon are Disney World‘s waterparks.
