Laugardalur Sports Day The 8th of October was the Laugardalur Sports Day. This is the second time the games were held and it is most likely becoming an annual thing. The games include jumping rope, paper airplane toss, pull-ups, bean bag toss, tug of war, and more. Three schools in Laugardalur area of Reykjavík competed in the games. Laugalækjarskóli, Langholtsskóli, Vogaskóli and the gymnasic team Ármann participated in the games. The competitors were from 8th-10th grade and there were about 500 students from all three schools. It was a tough competition and the schools were very even at times but in the end the end Laugalækjarskóli was in first place, Langholtskóli in second, and in third Vogaskóli.

Interview with a Future Teacher With our teacher theme we decided to interview Kristján Hildibrandsson, a student teacher in Icelandic who was with us the first term. Why do you want to be a teacher? -Well, I‘ve joked that it‘s because I want to talk when people are forced to listen but the real reason is because I enjoy it very much. I have asked myself this question and I have no simple answer. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? -Just hanging around, watching football(soccer if you’er weird), playing video games, and just hanging around with friends. What other jobs have you had before becoming a teacher? -For the last two years I‘ve been a security guard in my hometown Stykkishólmur and a few summers before that I was a pool guard and worked at cutting grass. Who is your favorite musician/band? -Aerosmith, but I don‘t listen to music that often. Do you often watch TV shows? If so, what TV shows do you watch? -I watch too many TV shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead but my alltime favorite is Taken from around 2000. Are you into any sports? -I follow football(soccer) and used to play in the 3rd devision and used to be the goalkeeper with Snæfell. What do you think about the school? -I love it. The atmosphere is great, the kids are great, the staff is helpful and I have loved my stay here. What is the difference to this school compared to the other schools you‘ve been in? -The first thing that I can think of is that here you have Smartboards. All the other schools have sold theirs. I think every school is different to the next one but I can‘t be more specific. But I can say that this has been my most enjoyable job connected with career training. What do you think is good about the school and what could be better? -The best thing about this school is the atmosphere between the kids because I enjoy to being in the classroom with them but what can be better is the air in the classroom. Even though the atmosphere is great it smells bad.

Iceland are going to EuroBasket 2015! By: Guðjón Hlynur Sigurðarson

This year, the Icelandic National Basketball Team played six games and only against two teams. Iceland played three games against Great Britain and won all of them. They also played three games against Bosnia Herzegovina but even though this Icelandic National Basketball Team is probably one of the strongest national teams in basketball that we have ever had, Bosnia was the stronger team and won two games and Iceland only one. But despite these two losses, one of these lost games (last game in their group against Bosnia) were one of the most memorable and greatest games that Iceland had played in Icelandic basketball history, even though we lost. “We´re here to win, not to lose” said Jóhannes Már Marteinsson, the Icelandic National Basketball Team’s physiotherapist on the last practice before probably one of the most important games that Iceland has ever played in Icelandic basketball history, against Bosnia and Herzegovina. And people that watched the game saw that our team went into the game with that mindset because they fought like warriors. Despite that they fought very hard and played good basketball (both defense and offense), they came out short and lost the game with eight points (70-78). Many people say (and I agree with them) that one of the reasons that we lost was because Hlynur Bæringsson played only in the beginning of the game but stopped playing in seven minutes, struggling with an injury. So, the team was basically missing one of their best players of the team early in the game that made the game even harder. But Icelanders weren’t sad when we lost the game and celebrated along with Bosnia Herzegovina, but why did we celebrate? The reason is that if we won we would be certain to be able to take part in EuroBasket, but if we lost by few enough points we would still go. As you can see we only lost with eight points and you can see then why both teams celebrated. 90 minutes before the game, people were starting to come. 20 minutes before the game started , Laugardalshöll was almost filled with people, ready to encourage our great team. And it’s said that the incentive from the Icelandic crowd helped our team a lot in the game and motivated them. And there’s no doubt that, that fact is true because for example it took Jón Arnór Stefánsson (one of the best players that Iceland has ever had) only three minutes to break the record of most points scored in Europe games as a Icelandic basketball player. He only needed 7 points to tie the record that Guðmundur Bragason had, but scored 21 points in the ball game. Guðmundur had 576 points (averaging 13.1 points per game) in 45 games but Jón Arnór had 590 points (averaging 14.8 points per game) in only 40 games, which is a great performance. Here you can see the list of the top 8 Icelandic basketball players with most points scored in Europe tournament:

Name of players: Jón Arnór Stefánsson Guðmundur Bragason Herbert Arnarson Teitur Örlygsson Logi Gunnarsson Valur Ingimundarson Helgi Jónas Guðfinnsson Jakob Örn Sigurðarson

Total points: 590 points 576 points 500 points 461 points 446 points 360 points 345 points 320 points

Average per game: 14.8 points 13.1 points 10.6 points 12.8 points 9.7 points 11.2 points 11.5 points 11.0 points

Then there was a hard competition between players over who would score the most points of this year´s Europe tournament and Logi Gunnarsson ended up being on the top of that list although the scores were very even. He scored 77 points in these six games and was averaging 12.8 points per game. Only 2 points behind him was Haukur Helgi Pálsson who scored 75 points and averaging 12.5 points per game. Our Icelandic hero, Jón Arnór Stefánsson played only two of these six games because of injuries, but in his two games he scored a total of 44 points, thus averaging 22.0 points per game, which was his final score of the Europe tournament. Here you can see the list of every player total points after these six games Iceland played in Europe tournament:

Name of players: Logi Gunnarsson Haukur Helgi Pálsson Hörður Axel Villhjálmsson Martinn Hermannsson Jón Arnór Stefánsson Hlynur Bæringsson Pavel Ermolinskij Sigurður Þorvaldsson

Total points: 77 points 75 points 69 points 59 points 44 points 42 points 32 points 10 points

Elvar Már Friðriksson Sigurður Gunnar Þorsteinsson Ragnar Nathanaelsson Axel Kárason Helgi Már Magnússon Ólafur Ólafsson

9 points 8 points 7 points 7 points 3 points 2 points

“Of course this is a hard round but also an exciting project for KKÍ, players and coaches”, said Hannes S. Jónsson the foremen of KKÍ, after Iceland was drafted into a hard B - round with a lot of tough teams that all include at least 2 NBA players. These teams are; Spain, Serbia, Germany, Italy and Turkey. If I had to say who are the top 5 best players in this round, I would say; Dirk Nowitzki from Germany (Dallas Mavericks, NBA), Serge Ibaka from Spain (Oklahoma City Thunder, NBA), Marc and Pau Gasol, brothers from Spain (Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls) and finally Danilo Gallinari from Italy (Denver Nuggets). It’s easy to see why the Icelandic National Basketball Team roster and also the fans are excited to be a part of such a great tournament with great players. The first game will be up against Germany (Dirk Nowitzki) in Berlin, which is not going to be an easy game but I think if every player enjoys playing the game that they love on the court with a positive attitude, it’s going to be a lot easier. Let’s go Iceland!

There is a place between dimensions, between worlds. It was known as the Outside or the Unknown, though its true name is the Void. Despite its name, the Void is not an empty

The Void

Cho’Gath and Rek’Sai Cho’Gath, a creature of malice and violence, a thing that causes most to cringe in fear. a creature of the void.. He feeds on his predations, growing and swelling as it gorges itself. Worse,. the creature is intelligent, making it even harder to be captured. Fortunately, the power of the League’s summing confined Cho'Gath’s presence exclusively to the League of Legends.

The largest and fiercest of her species, Rek'Sai is a predator that tunnels through the earth to ambush and destroy her prey in an instant. Her insatiable hunger has laid waste to entire regions of the once-great Shuriman empire. Merchants, traders and armed caravans will go hundreds of miles out of their way to avoid these vast areas, though cunning bandits have been known to lure the unwary into her killing grounds. Once Rek’Sai detects you, your fate is sealed. There is no hope

KASSADIN Kassadin is such a creature. He was once a man forced to look upon the face of the Void and forever changed by what he saw. Once a seeker of forbidden knowledge, he discovered that what he sought was something else entirely. He is one of the few that has found his way to forgotten Icathia and lived to tell "The balance of power must be preserved."


When Kha'Zix crossed over into this world, he was fragile and ravenous. The animals he first encountered were too small to fuel the rapid evolution he craved. Kha'Zix focused his hunger on the most dangerous creatures he could find, risking his life to satisfy his need. With each kill he feasted and changed, becoming a stronger, faster predator. Kha'Zix soon chased his prey with unrestrained aggression, believing he was unstoppable. One day, while savouring a fresh kill, the predator became the prey. From cover a creature pounced in a blur of fangs and steel, tackling him to the ground. It roared in his face slashing and clawing, and Kha'Zix felt his blood spill for the first time. Screeching in fury, he sliced at the brute's eye driving it back. They fought from sunset to sunrise. Finally, near death, they reluctantly separated. As his wounds closed, Kha'Zix burned with anticipation at the idea of devouring one who could match the Void's strength. He resumed his search for powerful prey with renewed vigor. Someday, Kha'Zix will feast on Rengar.

Dexter are TV shows containing eight seasons with about 20 shows in each season. The show is about a serial killer, Dexter Morgan, living a double life. When he was three years old he was found in a puddle of his mother‘s blood after she had been chopped up in pieces with a chainsaw, which appears in Dexter‘s work since he chops up his victims just like his mother‘s killers did. A detective, Harry Morgan, found him at the crime scene and adopted him. When Dexter got older Harry noticed that from a young age, Dexter started to kill, only animals at first, and when Harry asked Dexter why he said he had this urge to see blood, which he started, with time, to call The Dark Passenger. Harry knew this urge would only grow and started to channel his urges before he would go out of control. Harry started teaching him to kill only bad people who deserved to be killed, like drug dealers, murderers, or rapists. He taught him to be patient and how not to get caught; since he was a very good detective, he could teach him very well. When he watched Dexter kill a man he committed suicide. Dexter‘s need for blood made him a blood spatter forensic analyst with Miami Metro where he works with Vince Masuka, Angel Batista, Joey Quinn and Debra Morgan. There he can see when a murder is committed and he can track down the murderer and kill him, but only if the murderer gets away. People in the force suspect him though, like Sergeant James Doakes and later Captain LaGuerta. In the end they both get killed; not by him though. His only family is his sister Debra Morgan, Harry‘s daughter, and his son, Harrison who he had with Rita Bennett, who got killed when Harrison was a baby. He also has two stepchildren, Astor and Cody, who are Rita‘s kids, but Dexter doesn‘t see them often after Rita‘s death since they were sent to live in Orlando with Rita‘s parents. In the 1st season, the Miami Metro PD had a murderer who was named by the media The Ice Truck Killer. He used to kill prostitutes and drain the blood and then decapitate them. Then The Ice Truck Killer started to use places from Dexter’s childhood as crime scenes, and was trying to connect to Dexter; which he found odd. Dexter then found a decapitated Barbie doll with bows around its body parts in Dexter’s freezer. Dexter found out that The Ice Truck Killer was his long lost brother Brian Moser, who went by the name Rudy Cooper. When Dexter confronted him they went to kill together but Brian had already chosen his victim; Debra, Dexter’s sister and Brian’s fiancée. Dexter stops Brian from killing Debra and then kills Brian.

In 2005 the Star wars saga came to an end… or so we thought, after the release of Star wars revenge of the sith the prequel trilogy was completed. Then in 2012 Disney bought Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion and announced a new star wars trilogy that will come in December 2015 It lasted for almost half a year, but production on Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens has begun. They started filming the movie on May 16, 2014, and ended in the first week of November. While some location shooting was done in places like the Abu Dhabi desert but most of filming was done at Pinewood Studios in England. There were some complications encountered during shooting, with incidents involving leaked photos and plot details, but the biggest setback involved Harrison Ford sustaining an injury aboard his own ship the Millennium Falcon. Schedules had to be changed and production was put on hiatus for a spell, but the situation was resolved without the need to delay the film’s release date. A lot of rumors have been going around about the plot and I have summed up some of it. The film will be set 30 years after the battle of Endor (episode VI) Most of the original actors are playing their original role such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. However there are also many Low class celebrity’s with little experiance who might be playing the roles of Han and Leas children or something like that Everyone is excited about the new trailer, and they should be but there have been lot arguments on the internet about what is what and who is who. For instance It seems everyone seems to have problem with there being a black storm trooper. This is ridiculous, People have been saying that he can´t be black because storm troopers are clones of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, this is not true. The Kamonians where making a clone army of Jango Fett for the jedi order but this was all a part of palatine’s plan. Once he executed order 66 and the clones killed almost all the jedi the Kamonians stopped the production. This means that clone troopers are only in episode 1, 2 and 3 but in 4, 5, 6 and soon to be 7 there will be storm troopers. Also you might notice that in episode 4 Luke’s plan is to join the galactic empires army and becoming a storm trooper. Then there is the new lightsaber, it has a lot of love hate sort of attention. It is nice to see something new and exciting like this but people seem to think it’s a bit… too much. The cross guard seems to confuse people, they seem to think that it is emitted from the small metal component but the beam is just split three ways inside the holster. Dumb dumb people.
