Grasshopper quiz

Grasshoppers are an interesting and complex insect that are also referred to in the Bible. Farmers are terrified of losing their crops to a swarm of a type of grasshopper called a locust. Kids love to catch these hoppy critters and to save them in a bottle. Learn more about the grasshopper by taking our quiz.

There are two types of grasshoppers: long-horned and short-horned. Long-horned grasshoppers have antennae about the same length as their body and short-horned grasshoppers have antennae about half the length of their bodies.

Short-horned grasshoppers are often called locusts, particularly when they migrate. A migration of thousands of short-horned grasshoppers is often called a swarm.

Grasshoppers range in length from one-half inch (1.3 cm) to more than six inches (15 cm) in some tropical species. Grasshoppers are generally colored green, brown, or gray.

There are more than a million documented kinds of insects in the world and grasshoppers belong to a group of insects called orthoptera. Katydids and crickets also belong to this group of insects.

A grasshopper about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) long can leap 20 inches (50.8 centimeters). If a person 5 feet (1.5 meters) tall could jump that well, he or she could leap from one end of a basketball court to the other.

Grasshoppers are similar to mosquitoes in that they can be found almost anywhere. They live in forests, grasslands, and deserts and on mountains, but they cannot live in the North or South Poles.

Grasshoppers are cold-blooded; the temperature of their bodies changes with the temperature of the air. If it’s too cold outside, the grasshopper would freeze solid; which is why grasshoppers jump the most in the middle of a hot afternoon.

A grasshopper has two compound eyes, three simple eyes, and a pair of antennae. The antennae of short-horned grasshoppers point forward; those of long-horned grasshoppers generally curve backward over the body.

Attached to the thorax of a grasshopper are three pairs of legs. The hind legs are quite long and have thick, strongly muscled thighs that enable the grasshopper to jump a distance of roughly 20 times its own length.

The hearing organs of a long-horned grasshopper are located on its front legs, just below the knee. However, those of a short-horned grasshopper are on the forward part of the abdomen, under the wings.

Short-horned grasshoppers sing by rubbing their hind legs against their front wings or by rubbing their wings together. Long-horned grasshoppers, on the other hand, produce sounds only by rubbing their front wings together.

A grasshopper uses its multi-lens compound eyes to see. Scientists are not sure how a grasshopper makes use of its smaller eyes.

A grasshopper’s antennae are thin and very sensitive. In addition to using them to feel, they also smell with their antennae.

Many grasshoppers use their back wings to fly, although not all grasshoppers can fly. Wings on grasshoppers that do not fly do not appear to have any other function.

Grasshoppers do not have lungs, but instead they have tiny holes, called spiracles, in their thoraxes and abdomens. A grasshopper has 10 pairs of spiracles, whereby air enters through the front holes and leaves the body through the back holes.

Most long-horned grasshoppers eat plants; however, some eat the remains of dead animals or other insects. Short-horned grasshoppers, though, feed only on plants.

Male grasshoppers do all the singing and the females rarely make any sounds. Males sing mostly to attract females, but they also make alarm calls and warning sounds.

Short-horned grasshoppers deposit their eggs, in clusters of 15 to 100 or more, underground and cover the clusters with a fluid that hardens to form a protective cover. However, long-horned grasshoppers deposit their eggs in the soft tissue of plants or on tree branches.

A nymph has a hard exoskeleton that cannot grow, so it must shed several exoskeletons as it grows. The nymph also has a voracious appetite that is even greater than an adult grasshopper; they devour everything around as they grow.

Short-horned grasshoppers swarm, migrate, devour crops and are often called locust. A swarms can include billions of grasshoppers traveling 25 to 50 miles a day, blocking out the sun, eating everything in its path and creating a hazard to navigation.

A contemporary venue for all occasions in the heart of Parkstone

The Grasshopper was one of Hall & Woodhouse’s earliest pubs joining the family back in the 19th century. Originally called ‘The Half Way House Hotel’ because it was halfway between Poole and Bournemouth, its name changed in 1997 and in 2018 the Grasshopper was fully transformed into a fantastic contemporary, multi-occasion and multi area venue, serving the needs of the local community in and around Parkstone, Poole and Bournemouth. This was the year H&W sold their old Victorian brewery and there are many brewery artefacts integrated into the Grasshopper’s design, including the bar area, which contains a fire made from the copper kettles that boiled the beer, walls constructed from barrel staves, pressure gauges and a black board from the old brew house. In addition, vast bellows from the old Maltings are now a coffee table in our new Common Room.

We’re open from 9.00am until bedtime, serving our Colourful Coffee, snacks and a comprehensive selection of main meals from our extensive range of menus including brunch, a free from menu (featuring dishes free from gluten and dairy products, as well as a range of vegan and vegetarian options), dinner and Sunday Lunch, so why not come down and see what all the fuss is about!

Dining Room

Our Dining Room is a must for couples and small groups alike, looking for a relaxed atmosphere but a slightly more formal dining experience.

Light and airy, with wood panelling, attractive chandeliers, traditional dining furniture (including our very own charity tip table) , table service and open views of the kitchen, our ‘brasserie’ style experience offers classically simple British food with reliable dishes that everyone wants to eat, rather than those found in an elaborate restaurant.

Our delightful, relaxed pantry areas evoke memories of the kitchen at the H&W brewery at the start of the 19 th Century, where you can dine in your own time surrounded by an eclectic mix of old kitchen equipment and more contemporary kitchen produce, some of which is incorporated into our fantastic range of menus.

Relax over a leisurely brunch or treat yourself to one of a range of mains or sandwiches from our separate Pantry menu and let our friendly staff do the rest.

Common Room

Our snug Common Room is ideal to relax & unwind, evoking memories of the loafing culture of a college common room, where different social groups formed, merged & dispersed throughout the day.

With comfortable leather chairs, a grand fireplace & a library of books & coffee table made from the old brewery Maltings, it’s the perfect place to relax with a pint or a coffee, a bite to eat & a leisurely read of the daily newspaper.

Our grand bar provides the perfect focal point for your visit, showcasing our exceptional range of cask conditioned and bottled beers, which are only available in H&W pubs & bars. Our great choice of lagers, ciders, wines, spirits, cocktails & Champagne by the glass, means that we have something for everyone.

And don’t forget our bookable self-service beer tables, where you can open a tab & order selected products directly from the comfort of your table via an IPad and then settle your bill at the end of the evening.

The Great Outdoors

There’s nothing quite like relaxing in the great outdoors with a drink and a bite to eat from our extensive range of menus on a glorious spring or summer’s day.

With a choice of front & side terraces, with plenty of comfortable wicker patio furniture, as well as our very own herb garden below the side terrace, ideal for sampling our extensive Colourful Coffee offer, we have spaces to suit groups & couples alike.

Forum Lager

Forum is a 4.2% refreshing Helles style lager, with a delicate flavour from the Weihenstephan yeast and a subtle fruity lemon character from Hallertau Blanc and Huell Melon hops.

‘Grasshopper’ is an app that uses puzzles and quizzes to teach you Javascript

The app was launched through Google’s Area 120 > on April 19, 2018, 18:36

If you’ve always wanted to create your own website but have felt overwhelmed by the complexity involved with learning a programming language, you might be in luck now. One of Google’s Area 120 idea incubator teams have successfully developed an app that could make learning JavaScript easier than ever.

The app, called Grasshopper, uses mini-games and quizzes to teach its users the popular web design language. Rather than manually typing lines of code, you simply tap on various provided code blocks.

Instead of simply guiding users through a tutorial, Grasshopper takes advantage of increasingly-difficult puzzles to engage users and help them develop much-needed problem-solving skills. The puzzle’s solution is displayed for you and your goal is to emulate it using the code blocks provided below the solution.

When you first launch the app, it’ll ask you if you’re new to coding. While I can’t personally speak to what this changes (you aren’t allowed to change your mind later), presumably, the app will adjust advice frequency or course pacing depending on the option you select.

To keep you coming back, Grasshopper will award you with frequent achievements for progressing through the learning material. Additionally, you’ll be given the opportunity to set daily coding reminders to help you stay on track.

If you’re interested in learning a useful skill and having fun at the same time, you can download Grasshopper for free via the Google Play Store or the App Store.
