 Hamburgers

What is America's favorite sandwich? Most food experts agree – it's the hamburger. Last year, Americans ate 13 billion hamburgers. Where did this amazing food come from?

The first people known to eat ground beef were the 13th century Mongol horsemen. Hamburger probably got its name in the mid-1600s when it became popular with local sailors in Hamburg, Germany. In America, the first Hamburg Steak appeared in 1834 at Delmonico's restaurant in New York.

The first hamburger served on a bun was introduced by Davis Fletcher at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis. This led to first fast-food hamburgers in 1921, made by White Castle, and then to McDonald's hamburgers in 1954.

Write short answers to the questions.

 Urban legend

Urban legends are stories that may or may not be true. Here's a famous urban legend about two college students. They skipped their big calculus test. They then told their professor they missed the test because they had a flat tire on the way to school.

The professor didn't question the students' story. He put them in different rooms and gave them each a two-page test. Page 1 of the test was easy. Both students smiled. Their "flat tire" hoax was working!

Page 2 was worth 90 out of a total of 100 points. The entire page had only one question: Which tire was it?

 New Trends

Here are the latest trends spotted by our trendspotters.

Yusef G., Editor: It's got to be text messaging. Why text messages rather than phone calls? Because you don't need to be there to get the message. And you can answer whenever you want.

Morgan F., Student: I think the new trend is hybrid cars that run on both gas and electricity. At low speeds these cars are completely quiet. They make no more noise than a bicycle! How cool is that?

Rupert P., Software Designer: Here's a trend I don't like: $20 to get into an art museum! Think of it: on a date you're down $40 before you even start dinner!
