BTN: Questions about Paris

This week’s BTN report was all about Paris and ISIL’s move against it. Monuments all over the world lit up it the colors of Paris’s flag to spread awareness, some of which included Australia’s parliament house and Sydney Habour Bridge. All around the world country’s are in risk of getting attacked by ISIL and Australian’s are in high risk of that happening. But Australia have a lot of protection to keep us safe. I understand that Australia is a protected country and we all will be safe, I also understand that ISIL has killed 1000’s of people.

What other monuments in the world were lit up in blue, white and red?

BTN: Scrabble Stars

This week’s BTN report was about scrabble and how sometimes you will play it on a rainy day but for others scrabble means a lot more. More than 125 kids have been competing to be the world champion. In 2015 more than 1000 words have been added to the scrabble dictionary, like  hashtag, selfie, lol, emoji, frenemy, onsie and bromance. I understand some people consider it more than a board game and I also understand these words where added because of the amount of use.

What other words where added?

Mosquitoes!

Why wouldn’t it go away? Ever 5 seconds I would have to scratch my arm and everything I tried like putting a cross through it, applying tea tree oil and using the mosquito zapper, nothing would work! How could something so tiny cause so much irritation? It is small insect that sucks your blood. Isn’t that gross imagine all the germs it could be carrying. No wonder people get so sick. Mosquitoes carry diseases like malaria. That is why some people in other countries like Africa are getting so sick!Just imagine what a spider could do!

BTN: Sugary Drinks

In this BTN report it talked about how aussie kids thought about soft drinks. The kids said that on special occasions they where aloud to drink soft drinks. On an average it said there was 6 tsp in iced tea, 21 tsp in an energy drink, 16 tsp in a 600 ml bottle of soft drink and 10 tsp in a sports drink. I understand that drinking something like this would cause obesity, diabetes or even heart diseases. I also understand that some people are unaware of how much sugar are in these drinks.

How much sugar is in a glass of orange juice?

Waves

I felt the wind slap my legs, I felt it rush through my hair. I saw the water gush past me as it settles far behind. I think to myself will I fall will I stand. But the future can not be told. It felt like I was flying, hovering above the ground. The waves where at a admirable distance but sooner or later they where to get closer. The time had come and I bent my knees. The waves pushed me up and down. But I stood my ground as if the waves where bullies.

BTN: Indigenous Sport Stars

This weeks btn report was all about indigenous sport stars and how inspirational they can be for younger indigenous kids that have dreams on being like them.

Recently the AFL and NFL have had their grand finals and did you know that indigenous players where stars of both. Both captains of the NFL teams are indigenous and one of the captains Jonathan Thurston won best player of the match and season. And in the AFL grand final Cyril Rioli won best on ground.

I understand that doing this would inspire a lot of indigenous kids and I also understand that this would be a really big improvement.

How hard would it be to get an achievement like this?

The journey of the Teddy Bears 100 WC

The bears looked normal from the outside but from the inside they where not your ordinary teddy bears. In the middle they had adventure, and to start their journey they needed to cross the road and get a ride. The road was dangerous and full of cars the only way they where going to get across was by playing dead. Like a dog. Step by step fall by fall. The teddy bears where at the foot of the car. Climbing up was one story but driving was another. The next problem was that they didn’t have the car key.

The last word 100 WC

The long creaking noise felt like it would never end. I looked into the room it was empty except for a small box I walked up to it and bent down to it. It opened up and a joker flung out. It played the most annoying music in the world then, in the middle of the noise. The box slammed and standing in front of me. Was my mum her first words spoke to say “Get out of the attic, once or twice I thought I had told you to stay out of the attic”And they happened to be her last!
