Finally receives Harry his letter, it was a letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Hagrid took Harry to Diagon Alley, where he could buy all his school supplies. He went to Kings Cross Station, where a train would bring him to Hogwarts. On board he meets Ron Weasley. They become good friends. At Hogwarts, are for houses, called Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin and Hufflepuff. Ron and Harry are both sorted in Gryffindor. Harry enjoyed his lessons en he learns to fly on an broom.

They also discover that Voldemort is trying to steal it. Together they try to stop him. But first they have to pass a lot of protections, like  enchanted keys, a life-sized game of wizard chess, where Ron sacrifice himself and different sized bottles with potions. Harry goes to the next room, while Hermione goes back to help Ron. Harry is surprised to see Professor Quirrel instead of Professor Snape. Professor Quirrel tries to steal the stone for Voldemort. So that Voldemort gets his body and his powers back. Quirrel uses Harry to find the stone. Quirrel tries to grab the stone from Harry, but he fails. If Quirrel touches Harry, he get burns. After a long struggle, Harry passes out. After three days he woke up in the Hospital Wing. Professor Dumbledore told him that Quirrel is dead, that Voldemort is gone and that the stone is destroyed. The school year is over and it looked like Slytherin won the house cup, but in the end turned it out that Gryffindor won. During the summer holidays he goes back to the Dursleys, but he doesn’t tell them that he isn’t allowed to use magic outside school.

My opinion: I love the Harry Potter series, because it’s a funny story. That there is a world where you can learn spells, make potions and can fly on a broomstick. There are a lot of characters and the characters are funny described.

My opinion: It’s a beautiful book. It has beautiful characters. It has a beautiful story. Two kids who have cancer fall in love, but don’t want to fall in love, because they are a grenade, they would explode some day. But they do. And it’s a great story with an great but sad end.

Title: The Hunger Games

Author: Suzanne Collins

Year of first publication: 2008

Number of pages: 374

Summary: It starts in Panem. Panem has 12 districts and a Capitol. Long ago there were 13 districts. As reminder for the rebellion they conceived The Hunger Games. This means that every year a boy and a girl between 12 and 18 years old have to go to the Arena, where they fight between life and death. On the day of the reaping is Primrose chosen against all odds. Katniss volunteers herself as tribute, because she knows  that her sister wouldn’t survive. The chosen boy is Peeta Mellark. On the night before the Games they have to give an interview. In this interview tells Peeta that he is in love with Katniss for several years. Katniss feels betrayed, because they didn’t involve her with this plan. Peeta closes an alliance with the Professionals. At the start Katniss thinks that he does this to win. Although, when she is in danger Peeta saves her. This ensures that Peeta is no longer with the Professionals. In the mean while meets Katniss Rue. They make a plan to destroy the food supply. Rue misleads them, while Katniss blows up the food supply. When she is there, she sees Fox face who jumps to the camp and grabs something of the pile. Katniss sees that the stock is protected with mines. With her bow and arrow she succeeds to bring it to explode. She is just in time between the bushes, when they came back. They are very angry. They expect that the one who blow up the stock is dead. Later that night they see nobody in the air. They project photos in the air of those who are deceased. They know that the perpetrator survives. Katniss goes back to the place where she agrees with Rue, but Rue isn’t there. A guy is capturing Rue in a net and kills hear with a spear, on which Katniss kills him. At Rue’s request sings Katniss a song when she is dying. That night the Game makers change a rule. From now on two players can win, if they’re from the same district. Katniss goes to look for Peeta. She finds a camouflaged but badly wounded Peeta. She brings him to a cave where she takes care of him. Through their love they get a lot of sponsors. Peeta's life still hangs by a thread as the Game Makers announce a banquet. They distribute things that every tribute needs most. Katniss want to get the medicines, but Peeta refuses her to go. Katniss decides to go secretly. She tries to grab the medicine but Clove stops her. Clove is about to kill Katniss if Thresh saves her. Thresh kills Clove. He doesn’t kill Katniss, because of Rue. When she comes back, Katniss smears Peeta in with the healing ointment. Katniss and Peeta are looking for food. Peeta thinks he finds eatable berries. They hear the canon shot what means someone is dead. Katniss is scared to death, because she thinks its Peeta. When they find each other, they see it is Fox face.

She has eaten from the berries, called Night lock. You’re dead within a second from eating Night lock. Around 12 o'clock in the afternoon it suddenly becomes dark. There jump wild dogs, which are actually genetically mutated killing machines from the bushes, causing them to run. They climb on the Cornucopia, where Cato the last remaining tribute also is. He threats Katniss by almost strangle Peeta. In the meanwhile frees Peeta one arm and makes a cross on Cato’s free hand. Katniss shoots an arrow in the cross, whereby Cato fells down from the pain. Cato is partly eaten by the wild dogs. In the end shoots Katniss an arrow to him to help him out of his misery. After which they get the communication that only one player can win. Katniss finds that Peeta must win and Peeta thinks the same about her.                                                                                        Katniss decides that they both eat Night lock, which kills them both. So that there is no winner. In order to prevent that there is no winner they turn back the rule again. Katniss and Peeta win The Hunger Games. Back in the Capitol they are crowned by President Snow.

My opinion: You want to know what’s going on in Panem. You want to read an know more and more about Katniss, Peeta and the other characters. It’s an exciting book. Even though it is sometimes a bit bloody, there are also funny and cute moments

Article 1 :

Put the title here : 10 arrested in Florida heroin bust, including 74 - year – old woman in wheelchair.

Put the text here: The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration announced Tuesday the arrests of 10 people accused of involvement in what the agency calls a "significant" heroin organization based in Orlando, reports CBS affiliate WKMG. Agents said Ruth Perez-Lopez, a 74-year-old woman who used a wheelchair, led the organization, which allegedly peddled as much as two kilos of heroin per month. Agents said the group took in $300,000 per month. The arrests were made as part of DEA raids nicknamed "Operation Deals on Wheels" by the agency. Three of those arrested were selling heroin out of a small house in a suburban section of the city, agents say. Investigators say the bulk of the heroin came from Colombia. The group primarily sold the drug in pill form, for $10 per pill, a DEA spokesperson told 48 Hours' Crimesider. She said the drug has become a cheap alternative for those who are addicted to prescription opioids."It's really close to what was happening with crack. It's cheap and affordable, and that's why it's spreading so fast," said Anne Judith Lambert, of the DEA's Miami division. Lambert said as agents were preparing to launch the raid, at 10 minutes before 6 a.m., a mother of four showed up to purchase heroin. She was also arrested."It just goes to show you what this does. Who gets up at 10 to six to buy drugs?" Lambert asked. Others arrested as part of the bust include: Wilfredo Torres-Reyes, Angel Contreras-Lozada, Rolando Gomez-Arroyo, Henry Thomas, Miguel Ortiz-Ortiz, Eddie Guerrido, Chris Garrido, Richard "Ricky" Miranda and Jose Merejo. The suspects were taken to Orange County Jail, according to agents. They will be prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General of Florida. Perez-Lopez's bond was set at more than $600,000. In order to post that bond, she will have to prove to a judge that it didn't come from the proceeds of selling drugs. DEA agents also seized guns and ammunition as part of the raid, they said. They are still searching for two other suspects allegedly connected to the heroin ring. They would not disclose the suspects' identity.

My opinion: It isn’t good that this woman and her gang selling drugs to other people. You can become addicted to it. You can ruin your life. Also a bit weird, because you don’t expect a 74 year old woman to be the leader of a drug gang.

Article 2 :

Put the title here: Emily Blunt in  talks to play Mary Poppins in Disney sequel.

Put the text here: She's played a catty fashionista, the stone-cold queen of England, and a rifle-wielding FBI agent; but things may be about to turn sweeter (a whole spoonful so?) for Emily Blunt, who is in talks to play Mary Poppins in Disney's forthcoming sequel.                                                                                                              Blunt, whose first lead role was Queen Victoria in 2009's The Young Victoria and whose most recent blockbuster was action-thriller Sicario, is currently in talks with Disney. She has always been their first choice for the role, according to Variety. But, as Blunt is expecting her second child, the casting depends on whether the production powerhouse can schedule accordingly.                                                                   The sequel will be set in Depression-era London, 20 years after the first film which took place in pre-World War One London. Julie Andrews played Poppins, the nanny that magically turns up and transforms the lives of a widowed family. The unhappy banker (David Tomlinson) who employs her and his squeaky-clean children fall under her spell: she has a penchant for cleaning, a love of 14-syllable words, and is, all things considered “practically perfect in every way.”                                                                The 1964 film, which also starred Dick Van Dyke as the token "cockney" chimney-sweep, took over $100 million at box offices worldwide and won five Oscars. One of these was the Best Actress award for Julie Andrews, who brought her bright-eyed charm and musical prowess to the enchanting nanny. The film had a catalogue of sunny, well-crafted songs – such as A Spoonful of Sugar – and it wove animation and live action in an unprecedented way; at the time it was pioneering, and now it is a children's film treasure.                                                                                                                  If she does take the role – which everybody hopes she will – Blunt will be reunited with Into the Woods director Rob Marshall, who was also behind musical films Chicago and Nine. The songs in the new version will be written by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, who won a Tony award for Hairspray.                                                              Marshall told Vulture in October that the film will be an "extension" of the original, using different storylines from the eight Mary Poppins books written by PL Travers.

My opinion: I like the movie, so I’m curious for this sequel. I know Emily Blunt from other movies,  wherein I liked the way she plays her character.

Title: Don’t you worry child

Year of first publication: 27-08-12

Put the text here:                                                                                              There was a time, I used to look into my father’s eyes
In a happy home, I was a king, I had a gold throne
Those days are gone, now the memories are on the wall
I hear the sounds from the places where I was born
Up on the hill, across the blue lake,
That’s where I had my first heartbreak
I still remember how it all changed
My father said
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child
See, heaven’s got a plan for you
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now, yeah
Don't you worry, don't you worry, yeah
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now, yeah
There was a time, I met a girl of a different kind
We ruled the world, thought I’ll never lose her out of sight
We were so young, I think of her now and then
I still hear the songs, reminding me of when
Up on the hill across the blue lake
That’s where I had my first heartbreak
I still remember how it all changed
My father said
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child
See heaven’s got a plan for you
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now, yeah
See heaven’s got a plan for you
See heaven’s got a plan for you
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry child
See heaven’s got a plan for you
Don’t you worry, don’t you worry now, yeah
Ooh ooh ooh oh, ooh ooh ooh oh
Ooh ooh ooh oh

Summary/ what is the meaning/ underlying thought:

My opinion: It’s a great song. It’s a song about growing up, fall in love, broken hearts. A father who says that it isn’t that bad, that it always gonna be alright. That you need to have faith in what’s coming.
