        Meet the world’s fastest chicken




Who: Chicken

When: Posted 13 of August 2017

Where: UK, Barley Mow public house in the Derbyshire Peak District village of Bonsall

What Happened:
The worlds fastest chicken has been found  in the UK. The world championship for hen racing 2017 was held at the Barley Mow public house in the Derbyshire Peak District village of Bonsall. The competition has been going on for 100 years now and is held anually. The chicken was named cookedit and was trained by  a 9 year old and the runner-up chicken was called pluckedit. 

My Opinion:
I reckon it is funny but cool to have a chicken/hen racing competition and the fact that it has been going for 100 years is pretty interesting. I wonder if any if these other chickens compted last year and have won it? I wonder if the winning chicken one last year? I wonder if any chickens muck up and run the other way?

       Crusaders Crowned 2017 Super Rugby                                  Champions


Who: Crusaders and Lions

Where: South Africa, Johannesburg Emirates Airline park

Why to find out the winners for Super Rugby

What Happened:
The Crusaders have won their 8th Super Rugby title with a 25-17 win over the Lions, but their first in nine years. Kwagga Smith was red carded 2 minutes before halftime for taking out David Havili in the air. That is the first ever final or semi-final the Lions have lost in South Africa. Just after halftime Kieran Read scored. The Lions were on a bit of a streak towards the end of the game scoring 2 tries and getting both convertions. Ryan Crotty got man of the match getting $100,000

My Opinion:
I am happy for the Crusaders and it is pretty amazing they have won 8 titles, it is interesting that this was their first time in 9 years.

I wonder: I wonder if they will defend the cup and win next year? I wonder if Kwagga Smith will go through to judiciary even for next year?

                                 Flooding Across South Island



Who: south island

Where: south island

When: posted on the 23 of July 2017


What Happened:
The flooding has affected roads and has prompted to evacuate cities and towns. Now that the flooding has stopped emergency states are trying all they can. The states of emergency remain place for the Otago region, Dunedin and Waitaki, and for Christchurch and Selwyn. The people of these places have been asked to wash their hands if the touch the floodwaters. They have also been told to reduce water use such as flushing toilets. About 320 homes had evacuated. Many of the major roads have been closed but most of them now have reopened but are still advised.

My Opinion: I think this is sad with all the damage it has done  to the South Island, I wonder if there were any other roads for the people to get to where they wanted to go.

Glossary: prompted-cause or bring about
advised-acting in a way that would be recommended.

                                        Owl Swims To Save Life


Who: Great Horned Owl

When: posted June 27 2017

Where: In between Utah and Arizona

What Happened: A Great horned Owl has swam through a canyon in lake Powell in betwwen Arizona and Utah. The owl still had some of its nestling feathers and gret horned owls usually nest on cliff ledges so it is possible the owl fell. Hikers were walking along and saw this owl in the water swimming. It is unusual to find an owl swimming because they have no defence in the water. They cannot fly off from water because they need to dry their wings first.

My Opinion: I think this is a very intelligent bird to be able to swim, I wonder if the owl was taught by one of its parents, I wonder how long it took for the owls wings to dry to be able to fly off.

When: posted on the 25 of june 2017

Where: Auckland

The All Blacks have beat the Lions 30-15 in Auckland which means they are winning 1-0 in the 3 test series. Rieko Ioane started on the field as winger, and scored 2 tries, and Codie Taylor getting the first try. Beauden Barrett only missed one of his kicks out of about 4 or 5.


My Opinion:
I am happy that All Blacks won the first test but i Wouldn't mind if the Lions won one because that would make it a good series. I think it is cool that Rieko Ioane scored 2 tries in his first time starting on the pitch.

                      World largest haka record broken


When: Posted 19 june 2017

Where: Roturoa

Who: About 7700 people

What Happened:
Around 7700 people have broken the world record for the biggest haka. The previous record was held in Masterton with 6000 people and the record before that was held in France in 2014 with 4028 people. Rotorua boys and Rotorua girls high school helped lead the haka. This haka took pace as the B&L Lions prepared to play the Maori All Blacks. The International Rugby Club spokesperson had announced that the record had nailed. 


My Opinion: Ithink it is cool that they have bet the world record,

Wonder: I wonder who planned this, I wonder how long did it take to organize this, I wonder how long it took for the people to learn the haka or if it is just a local one that many of them know.
