Kansas Senior Charles Wolock Gets Perfect ACT Scores

Kansas Senior Gets Perfect ACT Scores

Charles Wolock, a senior from Kansas, recently recorded a perfect score on his ACT test. To add to his profile, Wolock also aced the SAT as well. After netting a 2400 on his SAT, Wolock scored a perfect 36 on the ACT.

The ACT and SAT are tests used to evaluate a student’s academic level when entering college. The ACT test was designed to gauge how ready someone is for college. The content on the test is similar to what a student can expect when taking freshman college classes. It tests English, math, reading, and science. The average score of the test in 2009 was a little over 21.

The ACT test is not required by many colleges and only a handful of states require the test.

Kansas is not one of those states. Perfect scores for either test are rare.

The feat achieved by Wolock is even more uncommon.


2010 Daylight Savings Time

The ending of Daylight Savings Time comes on November 7, 2010 this year. We will be back to standard time after Daylight Savings Time passes.

On November 7, clocks should be adjusted and turned back exactly one hour.

This adjustment will mark the end of Daylight Savings Time for the year 2010. Many people believe that Daylight Savings Time is meaningless, but it is actually an attempt to save energy by taking advantage of as much natural sunlight as possible during the daytime hours.

Daylight Savings Time began during World War I as an attempt to save money and energy during the war period.

The Energy Policy Act has since set the exact dates and times that clocks should be set forward or back according to Daylight Savings Time.


Today Is National Bosses Day 2010

Oct. 16 is an Important day…for your boss

Every October 16, National Boss Day is celebrated. It is not a laughing matter.

With the economy in a precarious condition it might pay to be a little more considerate of Bosses.

Giving a card and taking out your manager to lunch are some of the things to do to celebrate this day.

The holiday was started in 1958 by an employee of the State Farm Insurance company. She liked her boss and the woman, Paricia Haroski, wanted others to also appreciate their Bosses. Of course those were different times and this should be considered. But it cannot hurt to take your Boss out to lunch.


National Coming Out Day Is Today

It is highly encouraged that all gay pride advocates wear gay and lesbian pride symbols on this day.
