Use Your Handwriting blubbr - Play & create video trivia games Spelling Bee What are the different ways to play the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee? There are two different ways to play. In the Tournament Spelling Bee, you'll be challenged by a series of words, with the spelling difficulty adapted to your skill level. The more words you get right, the higher your score will go, on a scale from 200 to 800. You can also try a Community Spelling Bee generated from one of our subscribers' word lists. How does the Visual Thesaurus Spelling Bee work? Each turn, you'll hear the recording of the word and see its definition (with words suitably omitted that might give away the correct spelling). In the Tournament Spelling Bee, the more words you get right, the higher your score will go. If you play a Community Spelling Bee, the words from the selected word list are presented in random order. What happens if I misspell a word? If you spell a word incorrectly, you can keep guessing for as long as you like. How does the scoring work? How do I get on the high score list?

Apostrophes © 2000, 1978 Margaret L. Benner An apostrophe is a small punctuation mark ( ’ ) placed after a noun to show that the noun owns something. The apostrophe will always be placed either before or after an s at the end of the noun owner. Always the noun owner will be followed (usually immediately) by the thing it owns. How can you know: 1. when to use an apostrophe 2. where to place the apostrophe CORRECTLY? First, determine which noun is the owner: a cow’s nose To qualify for apostrophe use, the owner: 1. must be a noun (cow) 2. must be positioned in front of the thing it owns That’s all there is to it! a cow’s nose means a cow owns a nose Link to Exercise 1 Now you know when and how to make a singular noun show possession with an apostrophe. The rules for apostrophe use with a plural noun owner are just a little more complicated. Follow these steps. 2. Place an apostrophe at the end of the noun owner. Check to see whether the plural noun already ends in s. four cows’ noses (yes, it does) four cows’ noses

Google URL Shortener Posted by Michael Hermanto, Software Engineer, Firebase We launched the Google URL Shortener back in 2009 as a way to help people more easily share links and measure traffic online. Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more. To refocus our efforts, we're turning down support for goo.gl over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL). For consumers Starting April 13, 2018, anonymous users and users who have never created short links before today will not be able to create new short links via the goo.gl console. If you have existing goo.gl short links, you can continue to use all features of goo.gl console for a period of one year, until March 30, 2019, when we will discontinue the console. After March 30, 2019, all links will continue to redirect to the intended destination.
