Russ, I love this app so much. It keeps me entertained all day. One question: did you make this app?
I am so happy you are enjoying News-O-Matic, Frank! You can read all about the history of NOM if you search for the article called "The Story of News-O-Matic." Marc-Henri Magdelenat from France and Lillian Holtzclaw Stern were the founders of News-O-Matic. Russell Kahn from New York City (that’s me) became the editor.

Hi. I read the oldest dog article. My dog Lyssa is 19 years and 8 months. I hope she makes it longer!
That's so impressive, Elisa! Did you look at the Slide Show in that article? You can see how old Lyssa is in human years!
Russell Kahn
Hi Russ, I love Harry Potter. Can you make Harry Potter news? It would be awesome if you do.
We write lots of Harry Potter news, Addison! We will try to make another HP article soon. For now, you can search through News-O-Matic using the search bar. Our most recent article about Harry Potter was "Visit the Forbidden Forest!"

Dear Alexa, I read about the oldest dog in the world and he is 23 years old. That is a lot of years! My grandmother's dog Juan Pablo is 13 years old! He is almost to that age, just 10 more years! I hope Spike makes it a little longer. Have a nice rest of your day! talk to you later!
Caitie, I know — Spike has a lot of years under his collar! I loved writing about him. Thank you for sharing about your grandmother's dog!

Hi Russ!! It's Sebastian! I really like the Yankees, so I want you to write an article about Aaron Judge!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE is great!!
I'm a Yankees fan too, Sebastian. And I agree that Aaron Judge is amazing! You can type in his name in our search to find articles about him from the past. I hope we can write more articles about too. Maybe he will hit 63 home runs in 2023 and set a new record! ⚾️

Hey what’s up Russ. Who do you think is going to win the supper bowl? 🏈🥣🏆 I think the Kansas City Chiefs.
I think it depends whether Patrick Mahomes is healthy. The star quarterback for the Chiefs hurt his ankle in the last game. If he's feeling well, I agree that Mahomes and the Chiefs will be tough to beat! 🏈
Russell Kahn
Hi Russ, the article you posted about light pollution was super interesting. I absolutely LOVE being on News-O-Matic. It is one of my favorite things to be on. Thanks!
I learned a lot from that article as well, Patrick. I hope people can reduce light pollution. It's so important that we are able to see stars in the sky! Thanks for saying that you love using News-O-Matic!
Russell Kahn
Would you ever run for 150 days? 👀
I don't know if I have the energy for that, Jordin!
Russell Kahn
Hi Russ, Patrick again. The oldest dog on earth was amazing!!!! I love dogs. I love being on News-O-Matic because I learn new stuff all of the time. The oldest dog on earth is probably my favorite article!
That's so great to hear, Patrick! I thought that article was super-interesting too! 🐶

Hey Russ, I love running. That running through Australia article was very inspiring
I completely agree, Micahman. I loved that story too! It is amazing that Erchana Murray-Bartlett ran a full marathon for 150 straight days! 👟👟👟

Hello, I really liked your Article about the 8 playoff teams in the NFL. Who do you think will win the Super Bowl?
Good question, Ronav. I think Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are always tough to beat. So they have a good chance to win the Super Bowl again. But maybe this is the year the Buffalo Bills finally win the NFL title! 🏈
Russell Kahn
Hi Russ! News-O-Matic is amazing! Especially the games. Also how is your day going?
Thanks for saying that, Yousha. I appreciate it! And my day is going well. It's always fun working on the stories for News-O-Matic!
