Quiz WriterJake

Jake didn’t think he’d become a writer when he was growing up in southern Saskatchewan, Canada, but fate had another idea. After barely squeaking through grade 9 English, by the luck of the draw Jake found himself with the most inspiring literature instructor his small town had ever known, and grade 10 English changed his life! Suddenly, evenings once spent at the hockey rink were spent curled up on the couch with the best of Hemingway, Dickens, and John Grisham. A valedictorian address and English degree at the University of Regina later, Jake is proud to call Heywise his favorite place to pen informative quizzes about all his passion projects. If you’re reading a post and pick up a hint of classic English literature, you’re probably reading something by Jake - especially if you come away feeling like a slightly better person for it.

Did you know?

The Liberty Bell

Despite its iconic status, has not been heard since 1846, on George Washington’s birthday. It was built in 1752 and was first rung to celebrate the opening public reading of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. It is unclear as to when the Liberty Bell was cracked, but most major historians conclude either that it occurred during the Revolutionary War in 1824 or the funeral of John Marshall in 1835. In 1842 the Society for the Protection of German Immigrants in Texas aimed to convert Texas into a German state. By 1847, five settlements containing over 5000 German immigrants were set up across the state, but after 2000 more had arrived by 1853, the movement failed due to a lack of organization and planning.
