This Month's Brain Teaser!
Last week, the local Primary school was visited by the Government School Inspector who was there to check that teachers were performing well in their respective classes.


He was very impressed with one particular teacher. The Inspector noticed that each time the class teacher asked a question, every child in the class put up their hands enthusiastically to answer it.

More surprisingly, whilst the teacher chose a different child to answer the questions each time, the answers were always correct.

Why would this be?

Five Things You Should Know About the Texans
The NFL preseason has started, and every team is a Super Bowl contender. Here are five things about our home team that we should all be looking at as preseason progresses.


1. Miller should have more help

Because of a less-than-stellar passing game last season, the Texans relied heavily on running back Lamar Miller. The 26-year-old set a career record for carries (268) in 14 games, but he might have more assistance this year. Houston drafted Texas running back D’Onta Foreman in the third round, with hopes of establishing a reliable second option. Foreman, who won the 2016 Doak Walker Award as college football’s top running back, is a welcome addition to an ailing offense. Miller played through injuries most of last season and missed the final two regular-season games. A strong one-two punch with Miller and Foreman could help open the passing game and relieve the pressure on the quarterback — whether that's Tom Savage or rookie Deshaun Watson.

2. Watson will get a crack at the starting QB job

When it comes to training camps, few things are more exciting than a quarterback battle. After shipping off Brock Osweiler to the Cleveland Browns, the Texans traded up to No. 12 in the draft to select Watson, giving up next year's first-round pick to make the jump. A national champion at Clemson and a two-time Davey O’Brien and Manning Award winner, Watson will have a chance to compete for the starting job. There are questions as to how quickly he can pick up the Texans' system, and Savage remains the starter heading into training camp. But Bill O'Brien has said Watson has given no indication so far he wouldn't be ready if needed in 2017.

3. Watt is healthy again

After starting every game in the previous five seasons, defensive end J.J. Watt played in just three contests before being sidelined for the year by his second back surgery in three months. In February, Watt announced his rehab was finished and he was on pace for a return in 2017. Despite his absence, Houston finished with the league's No. 1 overall defense. A four-time Pro Bowl pick and three-time NFL defensive player of the year, Watt makes the defensive line difficult to contain when he is healthy. He had 38 combined sacks in 2014 and 2015, while the Texans had just 31 total last season.

4. There's potential for big plays in the passing game

By almost any measure, it’s safe to say the Texans' passing attack struggled in 2016 after averaging just 198.5 yards per game (29th in the NFL). However, there were times last season when the unit showed promise. If Houston can find stability at quarterback, wide receivers DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller have the explosive, playmaking capability to lift a struggling offense.

5. The secondary should be in good shape

With Watt out for most of last season, the rest of the Texans' defense rose to the occasion in 2016. Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was the group's breakout star, applying consistent pressure en route to his first Pro Bowl nod. The secondary also stepped up by holding opponents to 201.6 passing yards per game, second only to the Denver Broncos. The loss of rising star cornerback A.J. Bouye to the Jacksonville Jaguars stings, but there's ample depth at the position with Johnathan Joseph, Kareem Jackson and Kevin Johnson returning.

School Supplies Are For Teachers Too!
With school beginning soon in most area districts, most of you with children are busily gathering the required school supplies.


What most of us tend to forget is that teachers need to stock up on school supplies as well.  If you have a teacher in your life – a spouse, friend, son, or daughter – one of the most appreciated gifts you can give for the start of the school year is a teacher “care package” of necessary supplies.  Here are a few suggestions of things that every teacher needs in their “supply stash”:

  • Pens, pencils, and paper.  Yes, they still use them.  Pencils should be number 2, pens should be blue or black, and a couple of reams of standard copy paper as well as two or three spiral notebooks would be appreciated.
  • Plastic storage bins.  These can be purchased at any home improvement store, and are very inexpensive and very useful in the classroom.
  • Highlighters in various colors.
  • A good mouse pad with a wrist support.
  • Snacks.  Many teachers work through their lunch, or their lunch period falls very early or very late in the day.  Often, they need a little pick me up.  Choose snacks that store easily and have a long shelf life like energy bars and trail mix.

Time to Observe School Zones!
School zones are supposed to keep kids safe as they arrive at and leave school, but the zones sometimes pose a risk for pedestrians and motorists alike.


Each school year, nearly 54 million school-age children walk or bike to school or otherwise pass through the school zone after exiting a caregiver's car or the school bus. In those busy zones, they can be at risk of injury or death. Meanwhile, motorists (even those who are parents or caregivers hauling their precious cargo) may need a refresher class on the rules of the road in school zones, experts say.

"There's a lot of activity that happens between arrival time and dismissal time that can be distracting, and that's the piece that can make it risky for young pedestrians," says Nancy Pullen-Seufert, associate director of the National Center for Safe Routes to School.

Just How Dangerous Are School Zones?
Take Chicago as an example: From 2007 to 2011 nearly 1,700 children and youths ages 5-18 were struck by vehicles within about a block of a school, according to a recent analysis by the Chicago Tribune of school zone safety in the city. That's an average of about 10 percent of all pedestrians hit by vehicles in Chicago over that time period. Many drivers didn't stop or slow down in or near these school zones, even when a crossing guard was present.

Big cities like Chicago aren't the only places where school zones are unsafe for pedestrians. A national survey found that two-thirds of drivers exceed the posted speed limit during the 30-minute period before and after school. And automated photo enforcement measures found that 78 percent of drivers sped in school zones, and 82 percent of drivers passed a school bus illegally.
