Australia is a great country thousands of over seas people come every year some of them are called asylum seekers. Asylum seekers come many different countries and different cultures. Asylum seekers do not have permission to be in Australia but is not illegal.
Asylum means safe place and judging by the name it is no question why they come to Australia. These people must come to Australia by boat which isn’t the best thing to do. They have to go days even weeks with very little food. There is the risk of pirates or the boat sinking not to mention sickness and disease. Also recently a boat was blowed up and killed five asylum seekers and many more were injured. So people would ask why go through all that trouble just to change country, well some of the Asylum seekers come because of events happening in their own country. There is a problem when they come to australia they have to prove they are refugee’s or they have to go back to their county. many of these unlucky people have been sent back and are currently refugee’s in their country. Many of the luckier people are interviewed at Australia.
Other people get people smuggles to get them into Australia which is illegal. The prime minister said he thinks the people smuggles should rot in jail then go on and rot in hell. People smuggles are wrong and I agree with the prime minister.
Mosquitoes are one of the most annoying insects in Australia but some mosquitoes can do more than an itchy red lump. The dengue mosquitoes can give you a nasty infection. These dengue mosquitoes are at the moment are on Australia’s most wanted list.
These little insects are stealthy they don’t buzz in your face and don’t make a noise when they fly. Luckily for us they live in the northern parts of Australia where it is hotter and are mainly found in Queensland. They carry the disease and when they bite you they pass it on to you. The consequence is that you will have very sore bones. The mosquitoes are immune to the effects of dengue fever. More than 600 people have been affected by dengue fever since Christmas.
Illnesses like this are really bad but the fever does wear off eventually. Scientists and doctors are working really hard to find a cure and hopefully they will.
In recent news the Sir Lankan cricket team was attacked. A local group of Pakistan citizens open fired on the team’s bus. Two of the cricketers and two police were injured. No one knows why the citizens open fired. Some say they want to make attention or the way their country works. They also say it may be due to religion.
This had made a big hole in international cricket. Because of this attack people are saying no more international cricket. Pakistan is supposed to hold the world cup in 2011 but people think otherwise. Some people are not surprised about the attack because of all the terrorism in Pakistan. The police still haven’t identified if it was defiantly Pakistan people who did the attack. Even though the government doesn’t know which country did the attack he wants to bring them to justice.
A couple of teams say they won’t be playing in Pakistan for a while. I think if stuff like this keeps happening there won’t be any international cricket. If there isn’t any international cricket thousands of jobs will be lost and make our financial problem even worse.
hundreds of people where affected by the fires but where not the only ones. people are finding more and more hungry wild animals. Hundred of animals have injured by the fires. The animals that lived in the area’s of the fires have been burned and have been bandeged. Because of all the fires that destroyed the bush annimals like possums and wombats have left them to starve.
Vet and volinteers have gone out to help all of the animals that have suffered from these terrible fires. Squeaks a baby possum was left in the bush to starve when the volinteers came and found her. Because of her state of health she has to have special milk to help her get better. The fires have been really bad for us and the animals and if the fires keep going on like this there might not be any where for the animals to go. Some have been taken to the zoo for some food and shelter. I think it’s really sad that all of the trees and animals are dying.
Great White Sharks are one of australia’s most feared animals. an insperational story of how a teenage tasmainian girl called Hannah and her cousin Syb overcame this fear. Hannah and Syb where surfing when Hannah saw a dark shadow coming for her. The five ft. shark came up for a bite and took a big chank out of her surf board.
Also badly injuring her leg. Syb dived in the water for the shark punching it in the head until it let go. Looking around in the bloody water he found Hannah strugiling to keep afloat. he helped Hannah onto his surf board and paddled in. He then called an ambulance. Hannah had over 200 hundred stiches! Hannah said she didn’t want the shark killed. She said that she was in it’s territory and it had a right to attack her. She said she will still be surfing when her leg get’s better. Shark attacks have been happening at the famous Bondi Beach.
Around about 16 shark attaks happen a year. Shark attaks are a really unfortunate thing and i think Hannah is really lucky to survive. The morell of the story is when ever you go surfing go with a friend.
