Is dependant upon

FOUND ONLINE: A lot of what happens here is dependant upon what Cleveland does in the off-season.


The writer meant dependent, not dependant. Also, I'd rewrite this to say that a lot of what happens here depends on what Cleveland does.
FROM THE SAME STORY: There are rumors and rumblings that the Browns will go full in on Redskins QB Kirk Cousins if he is not retained and there is rumblings and rumors that Washington will let him go.

Sigh. There ARE rumors and rumblings. The writer got it right the first time, but he later kept using is when are is needed.

I'm from jersey

FOUND ONLINE: “I milked my first cow there! I’m from jersey so I’d never been that close to one .. breaks my heart to hear this,” one fan commented.

The writer and speaker are talking about New Jersey, so it should be Jersey, not jersey.
