2nd Lt. William Martinez (Ramón Rodríguez) and his platoon of Marines will travel to the location of the mysterious meteorites that crashed all over the world in the new movie “Battle: LA.”

Although “Battle: LA” was full of enough action and explosions to keep me entertained, it seemed too long because I could already guess the outcome.

I often find the need for new words because my 7,000 word vocabulary gets repeated every day and I’m tired of not having some new and exciting things to say.

The website’s home page entices the user with a whole page covered in words each of which are endangered of going extinct as an official term.

Haiti has been slowly recovering from the earthquake in early January that left more than 300,000 people dead.

Now only nine months from this event, cholera finds its way to Haiti.

Cholera has killed nearly 300 people and has infected approximately 4,000 people within the past few weeks of its discovery, according to MSNBC.

“The cholera bacteria that originated in Haiti is similar to what has been found in Southwestern Asia,” according to SIFY News.
