    A Brazilian man, including his wife and mistress, were each sentenced to 68-70 years in prison after being found guilty of murdering women and packing their flesh into pastries. Not only did they eat the pastries themselves, they sold them to their neighbors. The rest of the bodies were presumed to have been buried in the backyard.

    Jorge Beltrão Negromonte da Silveira, his wife, Isabel Pires, and his mistress, Bruna Cristina Oliveira, were finally sentenced after being incarcerated in 2012 for the killings of two women. The trio had been on trial for the murders of  Alexandra Falcon Silva, 20, and Gisele Helena da Silva, 31. Before ultimately being butchered and being made into pastries, the women had been lured in by the offering of a nanny job in the homes or being given religious advice. According to BBC, the killings were carried out as a “purification ritual.”

    This years Christmas break has been cut short because weather forecast. The Worcester County Public Schools board of Education decided to cut our Christmas to take precautions in case of snow.

    Jennie Tran says, “yes Christmas break should be longer because most people go on vacation or leave the state to visit loved ones and it gives students a well deserved rest from school”.

    This year Christmas break in Worcester County is only 8 days and last year the Christmas break was 12 days last year.

    This year we come back to school on January the 2nd which is a Wednesday after our 8 day break.

    Students need a nice Christmas break to sit back, relax and let there high school stress settle down. This allows students to get mentally ready for the second half of the school year.

    Do you think this years break is long enough?

Farewell to seniors

The Impact that Seniors Have on Underclassmen

posted May 10, 2018, 7:23 AM by PHS Warrior Beat

By : Piajah Johnson

 

    Pocomoke High School has its flaws, yet it also has it’s good moments. The different group of seniors every year really determines how the school year will go. Only because the underclassmen look up to the seniors , because they know that anything that the seniors do, they want to do to. While talking to Sophomore's Atlanta Schoolfield and Teirra Thomas they informed me about a certain someone that they think has, had a big impact on them and that is Piajah Johnson.

    “ Piajah Has had a positive impact on me here at pocomoke in her senior year not only because she’s a friend, but because she’s taught me a lot about life and

many obstacles that I can get through, and most +important to never give up even though I wanted to plenty of times.” Says Thomas.

    Having someone to be there for you during your high school career and to dish out positive feedback about high school and some valuable life lessons to help you push through, Johnson  Has taken it upon herself to do just that she wouldn't give the advice if she hadn't experienced it first hand.

      “ Giving me advice to be successful not only in school but in life period, Johnson has always told me don’t wait to 

do things st the last minute or even your grades matter so keep them up.” States  Schoolfield.

    Getting advice from seniors is all fine and dandy, but to get advice from the younger generation and for them to give you words of encouragement means a lot, and young people tend to have a lot of wisdom, Because most go through a lot in their childhood, and it’s a lot of hardship when your young.

    “ Some advice to the outgoing seniors would be to just get out of high school and to do the right thing, Keep all positive vibes and don’t let anything get in your way of YOUR SUCCESS.” According to Thomas.

Did Melania Trump Steal from Michelle Obama?

posted May 9, 2018, 7:31 AM by PHS Warrior Beat

By: Monique Snead

   Melania Trump has finally revealed her platform “Be Best” 16 months after taking her role as first lady. In Trump’s speech she outlined three major pillars. She will be focusing on children’s well-being, social media and opioid use. Melania Trump's 'Be Best Initiative' Is Not All Her Initiative

   “I feel strongly that as adult we can and should be best at educating our children about the importance of a healthy and balanced life,” she said. “ As a mother and first lady it concerns me that in today's world children can be less prepared to express their emotions; children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and oftentimes turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction, or even suicide.”

   Trump also spoke about the negative uses of social

media as many had anticipated.

   “As we all know, social media can both positively and negatively affect our children. But too often, it is used in negative ways,” said Trump.

    Immediately critics picked up the the irony of the first lady’s speech due to her own husband’s twitter use, something that she has brought up in the past.

   Trump had no rebuttal when some critics think that the first lady stole the “Be Best” slogan from Michelle Obama.

   In 2016, the former first lady talked to Oprah Winfrey to speak about feminism and one of the biggest pillars was Obama telling men in the workplace to “Be Better”.

   And Trump is really feeling the heat from all of those that believe the two platforms are way too similar, which must like the Trump and Obama plagiarism controversy in 2016 when Trump’s campaign speech at the Republican National Convention was almost exactly the same to the speech Obama gave in the Democratic National Convention in 2008.

The police said that Tramaglini was running at the time of the arrest, which first reported the arrest. The school’s employees were were monitoring the track before 6 am when they spotted him according to NJThomas Tramaglini, the superintendent of the Kenilworth School District, was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating

   The school didn’t say how long feces have been detected on their property, or if Tramaglini was linked to other fecal finds around the football and track field but a community member told Patch New Jersey that at least eight poop detections in the past few months.

Boy Scouts Remove the Word Boy

posted May 3, 2018, 7:28 AM by PHS Warrior Beat

By: Monique Snead

    On Wednesday, the Boy Scouts announced that their signature program known simply as “ Boy Scouts” that serves boys from ages 10 to 17 will no longer use the name “ boy” beginning in February 2019. It will be known as “Scouts BSA”.

    The change came months after Boy Scouts announced that girls will be allowed into their program. Chief Scout Executive Mike Surbaugh told Daily Signal, they wanted to to choose a name that “evokes the past but also conveys the inclusive nature of the program of going forward.”

    The name change indicates a fundamental shift away from the mindset that first gave rise to Boy Scouts in the early 20th century. If the Boy Scouts were starting from scratch people would think that they would ditch the acronym “BSA” and just go for a gender neutral name.

     Boy Scouts, which are separate from Girl Scouts show that there is a fundamental difference between the two sexes and that some good could come from by separating them for certain purposes. The Boy Scouts formed out of a culture that heavily valued boyhood and girlhood. It was thought that each gender had its own set on virtues that our culture sought to cultivate.  

     If the founders of Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts truly believed men and women should the same and that the same goals would be achieved by mixing these organizations together then it could have been called “Scouts of America”.

     The founder of the Girl Scouts took inspiration from the Boy Scouts, she wanted to have start a different organization. Two separate organizations premised on the idea of masculinity and femininity identities actually matter.

     Such radical inclusion is the death of any real diversity, because without real difference, there can be no diversity.

    On Tuesday, March 27, the Pocomoke High School baseball team traveled to Washington High School to play their first game of the season. The Warriors defeated Washington 13-2.

    Senior, Chris Sanders, started off pitching. He kept his momentum and pitched a complete game for the Warriors. Sanders only walked five people, struck out eight, and had only three hits off of him. Image result for pocomoke high school warriors

    Senior, Brayden Hurley, was also a big help to the team coming up to bat and hitting a double bringing in a run for the Warriors. Throughout the game, Hurley had three runs batted in and overall went two for three. Seniors, Jared Hancock and Chris Sanders, both had big contributions to the Warriors win, with two runs batted in each.

    Junior, Malik Miles, took a few hits for the team. Miles was walked every at bat after being hit by the ball. This may have put him in pain for a few minutes but the team knew Miles was tough. Taking these hits for the team put Miles on base, giving the Warriors’ runners in scoring position.

    The Warriors dominated from the start of the game and completed the game with no errors. Coach, Paul Becker, was very pleased with the performance of his team and believes that this is a great start to their season.

    “It felt good to win and gave a spark to the team, it was a really good way to start off the season,” said Shawn Taylor.

    The boys baseball team knows that even though they have started off with a big win, they cannot ease up and take things lightly. They have to continue to work hard at practice and even harder during each game.

    The Warriors will take on Snow Hill on Thursday and plan to start and finish the game with lots of intensity.
