Silly Bandz

Silly Bandz are new! But what are they?

Silly Bandz come from America. You wear them on your arm, like bracelets.

There are different colours and different types of Silly Bandz: There are superheroes, with Spider Man, Wolverine and Iron Man. There are Halloween bands, with ghosts, witches and bats. You can also buy Justin Bieber bands!

Children and teenagers love them. “Silly Bandz are great to collect, or swap with your friends,” says Vicki, 13, from Toledo, Ohio. And famous people wear them too. Mary-Kate Olsen and the model, Agyness Deyn have Silly Bandz.

Why are they popular? “They’re fun and they’re cheap,” says Jo Sawkins, from British magazine, Sugar. But some teachers don’t like them: “My students play with the bands and don’t listen in class!” says one teacher.

What do you think about Silly Bandz? Do you like them?

Have you got Silly Bandz?
Have your friends got Silly Bandz?
What do you collect?

It's Bonfire Night

November the 5th is Bonfire Night in Britain. There are many bonfire parties. People watch fireworks and light fires!

Bonfire Night is fun, but it can be dangerous – that’s why it’s an important night for the fire fighters. They stop many dangerous fires.

But the fire fighters in London are not working on Bonfire Night. They are on strike. Why? The fire fighters must work new hours. Some fire fighters think that they will not have a job.

People aren’t happy. “We are not safe,” they say. The British Government isn’t happy. “It’s dangerous,” says Prime Minister David Cameron.

Would you like to be a fire fighter? Why?

Help !

Chile is a country. It’s in South America. There are mountains here. Under the mountains, there is metal. Big companies want to take the metal. They build mines.

On 5th August, there is an accident. Rocks fall on the mine. But there are 33 miners (people who work in a mine) inside. They are 700 metres under the ground. They can’t get out.

The good news:

  • The miners have food and water.
  • The miners have a telephone.
  • They have a television.

The bad news:

  • The miners can’t see the sun.
  • The miners can’t see their families.
  • It can take 3 months before the miners are free.

What do you think about this ?
How do the men feel?
Have you had an accident? Explain it.

Volcano explosion!

No planes for six days

Some days ago, a volcano exploded in Iceland. The explosion made problems for millions of people.

The explosion sent ash into the sky. Planes cannot fly in ash. For six days no planes flew over North Europe.

People could not get home by plane so they went by car, boat or train. Their journeys were very long.

Some people were far away. They had to wait for the ash to go.

But it wasn’t bad news for everybody. Niamh is 13 and from Scotland. She says,“I was in California, America with my family. We stayed longer in California and I missed four days of school!”.

Did planes fly over your country?

Do you know someone who could not travel? What happened to them?

EEUU se congela bajo un manto blanco

Una gran nevada azota a Estados Unidos. Washington sufre el peor temporal en más de un siglo. La nieve alcanza ya el metro y medio en algunas localidades. A eso hay que sumar las fuertes ráfagas de viento de 50 kilómetros por hora.
"Washington como nunca la volveremos a ver", por José Ángel Abad
La ONU, colapsada por la nieve
El temporal dificulta la inauguración de la Berlinale

Largas avenidas desiertas, oficinas federales cerradas, Congreso y Senado vacíos, transportes paralizados. Washington cumple su sexto día bajo la nieve. Por la capital sólo caminan los más valientes, a la nieve, ayer, se unió la ventisca. Como afirma entre bromas un vecino: “me estoy entrenando para los Juegos Olímpicos en Washington”.

Y es que por muy bonita y blanca que esté la capital de EEUU, a los ciudadanos no les hace mucha gracia. “Lo odio. Es terrible, nos bloquea. El metro no funciona. No podemos trabajar”.

Y eso a pesar del trabajo incansable del ejército y las cuadrillas quitanieves, que hacen turnos para luchar contra un manto blanco que crece a pesar de los esfuerzos. El noreste está en guerra contra un temporal que mantiene sólo en Washington y Nueva York a dos millones de escolares sin clase y a miles de pasajeros atrapados en los aeropuertos de las ciudades de cinco Estados.

El caos vacía calles y supermercados, multiplica los accidente como uno de Williamsburg, en Virginia, donde 7 personas resultaron heridas, al chocar 50 coches.

Y es que el hielo hace estragos, a pesar de los neumáticos de invierno. “Iba a parar, vi coches a la izquierda y a la derecha, patiné y choqué contra el quitamiedos” confiesa con su coche en la cuneta.

En Baltimore y Washington 250.000 personas cumplen casi una semana sin calefacción ni luz. Claro que estos días también son para el juego, es la cara amable del temporal, esa que nos deja ver a más optimistas, siempre dispuestos a demostrar que la primavera se encuentra a la vuelta de la esquina.
