To bring attention to the plight of the homeless, 54-year-old Terry Coleman of Denver. Colo., sang church hymns for 40 hours, 17 minutes straight --- finishing 849 songs!

Ancient Romans used poisonous lead as food seasoning and as a wine preservative!

"Shell collecting Shells!" As carrier shell mollusks roam the ocean floor, they cement pieces of coral, smaller shells, and other debris onto themselves!

< TASK > Answer the questions.

(1) Why did Terry sing 849 songs straight?

(2) What did Ancient Romans use as food seasoning and as a wine preservative?

(3) What do carrier shell mollusks cement on themselves while roaming the ocean floor?
