If you could create your own biathlon (a sporting event made up of two disciplines) what would it be?

If I could create any biathlon, it would be called the Alpine Skating. The two events that would be in this one event are Alpine Skiing, and Figure Skating. In this activity, you would have to be able to ski down a really steep hill. After, you would have to run into the ice skating rink and then do a performance, but not just any performance. The performance would have to be self-choreographed to a winter theme. This biathlon would be for both girls and boys, which is unique because most biathlons have either all girls or all boys. You would be required to have ski poles with you both when you are performing your figure skating routine, and when you are Alpine Skiing. There is a twist too, because while you are skiing down the hill, you also have to do at least 5 figure skating moves. In order to get the highest ranking that you can get, which is out of 100, you would have to have your skiing perfect. Also, your figure skating performance (routine) would have to be done without a mistake. Last, all of the figure skating moves that you did while skiing would have to be perfect. Alpine Skiing would be a very difficult biathlon, but it would definitely be worth all of the time and effort. Remember, the next time you are in the Olympics, make sure to participate in Alpine Skiing... the biathlon that will leave you speechless!

Is protesting a good way to make change? Why or why not?

I think that protesting can and also cannot be a good way to make change. Protesting is a very powerful action taken by humans. Sometimes when you protest, and people disagree with what you are fighting for they get angry. For example during Martin Luther King Juniors time, when the African American people were marching down the streets for freedom. It didn't benefit them that much because some of the people got put in jail for fighting for what was right. Also, people in the Ukraine want President Yanukovych's resignation so they have made barricades, and have been camping out in the cold and five people have died because of that. In addition, I think that protesting can also be a good change because sometimes when people protest, other people can realize that they are doing or saying the wrong things. The outcome is when people protest, they realize how they are hurting or affecting others and make change of that. After all, protesting can definitely be both a good and bad way to make change in peoples lives.
