Of the categories that produce top-sellers, Music was particularly impressive. On average, the 15 Music top-sellers analyzed were on the Top 100 list on 30 different days. (The one Weather app appeared in the Top 100 on 58 different days.) I used duration to see which categories had more proven top-sellers. Solid top-sellers have appeared on the Top 100 Paid apps list on at least 20 different days, while Marginal top-sellers have appeared in less than 10. The Marginal top-sellers have a short-term burst in sales, and are hits for only a few days.

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards arrive on Sunday (8 p.m. on ABC), and while some of my favorite shows, like Game of Thrones and Veep, are expected to walk away with a boatload of trophies, there are several nominated performances by African-American stars for whom I’m rooting. And because we all love to see black people win awards, here are the categories you should watch—with my predictions on how the nominees will do.
Read the 3 items and decide on what category they belong to. All answers are just one word. This activity is appropriate to use during speech/language therapy focusing on expressive language and vocabulary. Have fun!!!
