Hello! For the first time in about three weeks, I’m on TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, on with the news…

  • Thailand has banned ivory trade within the country. The speech about the ban was made at a conference called The Convention on International Trade of Endangered Species.
  • The Queen is ill with stomach bug. That’s about it but she had to cancel a trip to Italy.
  • People from 180 countries are having a BIG meeting at CITES ( the same conference that the Thailand Prime Minister attended) to discuss the trade of endangered animals.
  • The biggest ever telescope has been planned- the EELT (European Extremely Large Telescope). The telescope is being build in Chile, as the skies there are clearer than Europe.
  • 100 million sharks are killed each year for shark fins, according to scientists in America. America and Canada have tried to ban shark fin soup, but to no avail.

On a happier note, DOCTOR WHO PICS HAVE BEEN RELEASED FOR THE NEW SERIES INCLUDING THE ICE WARRIORS AND THE EPISODE SEVEN PICTURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway, see you next time!

  1. Is that true about the telescope name? That’s almost as bad as all those comets and asteroids they give numbers to.
