The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the pre-eminent men's professional basketball league in North America, and is widely considered to be the premier men's professional basketball league in the world.The league was founded in New York City on June 6, 1946, as the Basketball Association of America (BAA).The league adopted the name National Basketball Association on August 3, 1949.

There are 29 in the United States and 1 in Canada team in the NBA.The Basketball Association of America was founded in 1946 by owners of the major ice hockey arenas in the North-eastern and Midwestern United States and Canada. On November 1, 1946, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, the Toronto Huskies hosted the New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens, in a game the NBA now regards as the first played in its history.

In the NBA is my favorite sport. My favorite team and player is cleveland cavaliers and my my favourite player is Lebron James who is two times nba finals MVP. Lebron use to play for the Miami Heats but now he is going back to the team he was drafted in with Kevin love who use to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

How To Catch A Bus In Samoa Tofa Soifua

New Project from Team 4 Pes on Vimeo.

I have created a movie about Samoa with my reading group. The focus of our movie was to find the Differences and Similarities between Samoa and New Zealand. Samoa is a little bit different to New Zealand because if you are in New Zealand you can wait in a bus stop but if you are in samoa you just wait outside your house. Some other things that are different to New Zealand are, if you go to the bus you pay after you hop off the bus, and if the seats are full you can sit next to the driver. But you have to hold on tight because there isn't a door and you might fall out! Or else you can sit on someones lap you don't know! Weird 

Differences: 1.Samoan busses are colourful and awesome 2.Samoans have to pay after they get off the bus 3.Their buses have a car like shape and New Zealand ones are like a big rectangle. 

Similarities: 1.You have to wave your hand out to get the bus driver’s attention 2.You have to wait to catch the bus in Samoa and New Zealand 3.You have to pay on both of the busses

Toma World War 1

Do you know why yesterday was so special well because It was the 100th anniversary of the first ever world war 1. Where hundreds and millions of people died to save New Zealand or else we would not even be able to talk. English and all of this started off when a man shot a king called George V and his wife Sophie and that shot was called the shot that echoed around the world,and that is how it all started. 1800 kiwis came back the war finished in 1918. But sadly some kiwis died 16 million kiwis died so now you know how world war 1 all started.

Toma's Marathon Research

The name marathon comes from the legend of Pheidippides,a Greek messenger The legend states that he was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens to announce that the Persians had been defeated in the Battle of Marathon (in which he had just fought), which took place in August or September, 490 BC. It is said that he ran the entire distance without stopping and burst into the assembly.

The International Olympic Committee agreed in 1907 that the distance for the 1908 London Olympic marathon would be about 25 miles or 40 kilometres. The organisers decided on a course of 26 miles from the start at Windsor Castle to the royal entrance to the White City Stadium, followed by a lap (586 yards, 2 feet; 536 miles) of the track, finishing in front of the Royal Box. The course was later altered to use a different entrance to the stadium, followed by a partial lap of 385 yards to the same finish

The first ever marathon was in 1896 the distance (km) 40 and another distance (miles) 24.85.

Annually, more than 500 marathons are organized worldwide.Some of these belong to the Association of International Marathons and Distance Races (AIMS) which has grown since its foundation in 1982 to embrace over 300 member events in 83 countries and territories.
