Girls these days think they have to be skinny to be cool but they don’t realise that you don’t have to starve yourself to be skinny. You can go on a proper diet and exercise well but these girls think they have to be so skinny they can’t eat.
Some girls that go anorexic that start eating again that will make them even more fatter than before because it slows down your digestive system and makes the food stay in your body for longer. This makes you get even bigger than you first started.
Also girls that go anorexic don’t realise the dieses they can get from it like bulimia. Bulimia is dieses which if you don’t eat then suddenly start eating your body doesn’t respond well and you throw it back up again. Dieses that a caused from anorexia are not good you can even die from them. If your anorexic it looks disgusting kind of like a skeleton.
Girls like to put on makeup and they think it makes them look cool and pretty like the models in the magazine but really it makes them look like orange ump a lampas.
The older women like to be airbrushed to get rid of the wrinkles and they get plastic surgery but this later in life just makes them look worse.
Being happy about yourself makes you look pretty but putting all these chemicals on your face (makeup), and rejecting your body makes you look worse.
Older women get their faces air brushed to make them look 16 which isn’t right and younger girls are getting their faces airbrushed to make them look 20 and get rid of pimples and rashes and scars but it isn’t right because no one is perfect.
A lot of young girls compare themselves to the skinny models in the magazine but no one is the same. They look at themselves and then at the picture and put down themselves but that’s just how the company sells its product. Young girls (10-18) comparing themselves to 20-30 isn’t right they still should be playing with barbies not worrying about the way they look.
So I think the fashion industry should be forced to use the new law body image code
Over the weeks there has been a huge argument about junk food ads. But not just any normal ads. Ads during kids show including cartoon characters. People say they should be banned because they think it makes the children want the food and increase the number of obesity.
Well of course there are trying to get the children to want the food just like any other company. But they’re not trying to make the children obese! That’s the parents that make their own kids obese by buying it for them. The parents are the ones arguing about the obese problem around the world but they’re the ones giving, feeding it to their children they need to take control.
People also talk about what they’re going to have for lunch. It’s not necessarily the ad that the people go to get the food its some-one else’s opinion or they have tasted it before and they like it. It’s all right as a treat once and a while but not every day!(and the parents are the ones arguing!).
People I think have gone too far. Banning ads is a bit too extreme because it’s just like any other ad on television of course it’s trying to get the consumer to buy the stuff! Maybe just limit the ads to 3 times a day there is no need to ban them completely.
If you ban all the ads how is there business going to go. There is all this stuff now about the economic down turn and we need more businesses to employ people! This could really help people that need jobs.
ACMA which stand for Australian Communication media authority which are trying to ban these ads but why what are these ads doing to make such an argument? They Have no really good reasons to ban these ads beside’s childhood obesity which the parents are doing that to their own children.
If they ban all these ads what happens to the new things the companies are bringing out? What about the new healthy things. For e.g. MacDonald’s the healthy seared snack wraps.
Back to obesity how would the ads contribute to obesity? Really if you have junk food every day well yeah of course you are going to get fat. But if you take reasonable amounts of well you are probably going to be healthy forever! And again the parents are the ones buying it for their kids. E.g. a mother can’t be bother cooking to night how about some red rooster! EWW!
My opinion on this argument is no these ads should not be ban because yes they encourage kids to eat that food but it’s the same with any other ad. And the kids aren’t the ones buying it it’s the adult’s buying it. And these ads are helping the company with business and money. And it’s alright if you don’t have it over and over again. And it’s a bit extreme having all the ads banned.
And plus all the junk like KFC, MacDonald’s, Red Rooster and Hungry Jacks doesn’t even taste good!
For year old Mia Lines is you to be doing tennis she should be at the park with her friends 3 hours a day. But instead it’s at a tennis court no friends getting trained 3 hours a day.
Four year old Mia Lines trains 3 hours a day for tennis. She trains with champion coach who coached the Williams Sisters and Andy Roddick. Mia is said to be a child prodigy, but is she really??? Mia was trained to do tennis from the very start of her life! Her dad gave up his job too train her. The Australians left to go to America to get Mia, the coach who trained the Williams’s sisters and Andy Roddick. She trains for three hours a day. People are making a massive fuss about this. They’re saying she needs to be a child and get some friends, but her dad says that she still has time to be a child. He says it was her choice and she loves it. But has she been forced into loving it? Is this too much for her little body to control? How do we know she is having a normal life?
Camels. Many people think camels only live in Asia and America, but about 100 years ago early settlers brought camels to Australia. They brought them to Australia to get around in the Australian outback. Now there numbers have increased dramatically. The people in central Australia are sick of these gentle Beasts destroy their homes and farm land. The Australian government has made a decision to cull over 1 million of these creatures. But i think different these camels do not understand what they have done they don’t speak human. They’re just looking for water. It’s not like they’re going around killing every-one.
They don’t understand. Instead of killing them we should train them. They could be useful. Train them to listen to the human’s voice and to go around fences and plants. If we just put a little bit more effort they could be useful.
They didn’t walk to Australia it’s not their fault there here. People like us brought them here o technically it’s the people how live there’s fault. And those people choose to live there knowing that camels live there. It’s not their fault. And now they’re getting blamed! The people should move. It’s not fair if the camels were there first.
In Australia there are laws of how animals should be treated. But a farmer in Tasmania has broken these laws. His pigs were infested with maggots had no water and no room to move around. An animal activist took some horrible photo’s (you can see them on the BTN website).This does not just apply to pigs but also chickens who are forced to lay eggs, and dogs bread over and over again. Duck shooting, people hunt ducks for fun kill them and leave them there! Sharks fins being cut off for soup the sharks get chucked into water and then they can’t swim without their ins so the drowned. Whales harpooned for fun! It’s terrible and nobody is stopping these people.
My opinion is this should be stopped. it’s terrible and we should all start buying free ranged food. At least we know the animals have lived a happy healthy life. So stop animal cruelty!
Steeple chase is one of the many horse races in Victoria and South Australia. It was brought in by two Irish men who had a bet who could make it from one church steeple too another jumping anything in the way.
The dangers of this sport are at very high risk. It is common for something to happen during these events. It happens repeatedly and nothing is done about it. But this does not only involve horses, it involves jockeys too! Imagine 650kg falling onto you r body, or falling of a horses going 50k an hour! If a person broke a bone doctors could put some plaster on and in like 2 months it would be better. But with a horse it is completely different.
A lot of people know that Australia is in a drought but the water is spent on the tracks way too much. Everyone in Australia is doing there bit but no these people aren’t. The drought has caused plants to die, animals and even people but this doesn’t matter to them! They don’t care!
Also people having been trying to stop there gambling addictions but this encourages them. it tell people with the problem it’s ok to go throw your money away. It’s ok to keep on losing money. But it’s not that’s why this event should be driven to the end!
My opinion would be to ban this sport… Why? All these reasons and more the danger the drought and the gambling! So help stop this event in its tracks!
On the beaches these days’ people are more sacred of sharks then drowning….But did you know that more people are killed by drowning each year then being eating by the sharks? Continue reading

The East Timor Volunteers took their party time to East Timor to help out the people. East Timor is a very poor country. instead of getting in trouble, being, wasting there time, and doing things they would regret they took their time to help those in need. Even dad went and helped with the electrcity and plumming.
The Volunteers were proud of themselves. Alll though they new they were missing out on things back home they still had a great time an were happy they went there. They decided to ditch the beaches and bands and hoop on a plane to go on an adventure. East Timor is just north of Australia in asia, did you know East Timor is the newest country in the world? 6 Years ago they gained there independents but things didn’t run so smoothly. East Timor runs on generators and have no plumming so they have to fetch there own water……
The girls spent there time well in East Timor helping out and they had a wonderful time.
Hopefully you can do the same..
Black Saturday was a major event. All different parts of Victoria were hit by fires. People have lost everything , houses, animals, clothing, food, and even lives. Fires are still going talking everthing down in its path. People in Australia have taking there part in this tradgey donating money, clothing, toys, food and water. People are thinking of ways to stop a disaster like this from returning to victoria or any other country… The weather tooks its place by rising to 47 degrees making a major toll to this occcasion. Plus the wing was strong leading the fires across the state.
People have made points on how to stop fires coming back to vitoria like talking down trees around houses, burning under gowth, and making houses in more city like places. Some of these fires were purposely lit these people have not been fond yet but police are investigating. The victims of this disaster supplied with clothing food water, and accomadation. Schools are also helping contribiute to the victims of the fires by fowarding on money from free dress days, clothes and other stationary and books for other schools that have burned down.
For the future the government has introduced new fire saftey laws and saftey equipment. They have improved the technology so the communication travells faster through to warn people of disarters like this….
