We are always seeing pretty models on magazines, telvision adds and on the catwalk. They are always so perfect and pretty they don’t seem to have a single blemish on them. Why is that? It’s because they airbrush their rinkles, pimples and all different sorts of skin problems they might have. No one can be this perfect it just doesn’t seem right why don’t they use people all different shapes and sizes and people from different cultres. It might make people feel better about themselves because everyone is beautiful from the inside.
Everyone wants to be so perfect like a model but this has caused quite a bit contraversy. Some young adolescents have been starving themselves so they can be thin and pretty like models but this hasn’t turned out the way they expected. It is a very bad thought if you think that kids who are still developing are starving themselves because their not thin enough and can not appreciate themselves for who they are. I honestly think what does it matter, your perfect just the way you are.
Big, small, old or young were all pretty in different ways. Many of us think it’s pretty to be skinny and lots of muscle but it’s not only that you can be a very pretty person from the inside. Who cares if you have wrinkles and didn’t when you were young your still the same person. Who cares if you are big and were slim when you were young, and who cares if your the ugliest person on earth and were pretty when you were young your still the same person on the inside.
Models aren’t everything don’t get yourself stuck into the industry you’ll just turn into a fake perosn when you older and no one likes a bad botox job.
Three out of ten kids are obese in Austraila. It is a horrible thought of kids who have just started their life and are already over weight. Who has caused obesity? Is it the ads on the telivison? Is it the actual child who is begging for the food? Or is the parents?
Lately there have been a few arguments about child obesity. There have always been many television ads about MacDonald’s, Hungry Jacks, KFC, Subway, lollies and so much more, and all the kids love it. Although, they don’t think what will happen to them in the future.
Parents have also not been concerned about their kids eating habits. Some families have take away KFC or MacDonald’s a few times a week. Don’t they realise what bad health it is to young children. When the children grow up they’ll think it is ok to eat junk food. It is a ghastly think to picture in your head, so how are we going to prevent it?
There’s not much we can do to stop people buying junk food but we could decrease the amount of ads there are supporting that it is ok to eat. We also need to think before we put anything into our mouths and be conscious what harm it could do to our health.
Cyber bullying is a horrid thing. Our generation is going through a stage wher you must have a iphone, must have the newest and coolest everything, but it’s causing grief. Anyone can be cyber bullied but we can prevent it if we are wise with the internet.
Myspace is one of the worst websites to get cyber bullied. It’s for young teenagers and young musicians that are trying to let their music be heard. Although the musicians are safe but the young teenagers are not. There are so many teenagers that are out there and silly. They post things things that they will regret and it will allways be there for people to see. Adults are starting to get into it but the teenagers aren’t aware of that. When their parents find out there’s big trouble.
Facebook is better than myspace but not by alot. It’s meant for young adults and normal adults. There’s foolish young adults who also post things they will regretn aswel but they don’t really have anyone over their shoulder. So if they do get bullied it can lead to worse cases.
I have been bullied myself when I had msn and it wasn’t particually nice. My parents weren’t home but my brother who knows more about the internet than my parents was there. I was only in grade 3 and he showed me what to do. It helped in the future and thankfully I have never been cyber bullied again. If we want to prevent this then just be weary what site we go on and what eamil/texts you read.
We buy meat like pork and chicken, but where are these animals actually getting kept and brought up? Some of these animals have splened lives and others horrible lives. Recently some people have been caught with keeping animals in cages. They have gotten fines and warnings from the police but that doesn’t mean people will stop doing it.
Animal activists are people who tresspass to look and see if people are keeping there pig farms and chicken farms ect in good hands. The animal activists know that they can get charged fines or go to jail but they’ll take the risk. Animal activists are people who feel really strongly about animals and how they are kept.
A Tasmaniam man has been charged with fines recently. He was caught red handed by an Animal activists. She had a camera with her while she was investigating the piggery. The were pigs infested with magots and lots of creepy crawlies. The pigs could not turn round all they could do was stand up lie down. She was very disturbed while visiting this farm and very angry.
The farms wich produce meat have been around since the 1960′s. I think this is a horrid thing to do and no one should do it any more. A way we could stop this situation is only by free range meat and eggs. This means that the animal has been able to run around instead of sit down stand up.

Racing has been around for one hundred and seventy-seven years. It all started with two Irish men who were arguing about steeple chasing. So they decided to race to a church with lots ob obsticles. That’s how it started. Horses usally weigh about 650kg-700kg. Usuall height 16 hans. Average speed is around 50km per hour.
Gambling is a tradition at the races. Yet it is a horrid thing to do. Think about it this way you are forced/bred to race and people bet money on you, although you think but other people don’t realise that you are worth more than a couple of dollars. However if you don’t win people will quite dislike you, and there goes a bit of your reputation. This is why I am against steeple chasing.
Drinking. Ruins a fun day at the races. People get angry, violent could even die. If you drink too much you can get silly and in a worse case actually sneek into a stable (with a bottle of beer or a glss of wine) and give the alcohol to the horse. If this does occur the horse could fall and really damage itself, worse case get put down. This is another reason why i’m against steeple chasing.
Cruelty to horses. It is an easy thing to do because we don’t know what they think. Another example, horses have to jump over many things while racing. This is not easy thing to do because the obsticles they have to jump over are dangerous because of the height if they lowered them to a reasnable height then i guess it could be alright. Although there not going to take them down so this is another reason I do not like steeple chasing.
My own personal opinion is if they fix a few of these reasons then it could be ok but I reckon they should stop the whole thing. Although people will keep doing it and ruin their lives and the horses.

Recently there was a horrible Cyclone called Cyclone Hamish. With extremely high winds. Hamish didn’t exactly effect the land of Queenslands coast but mainly the sea. In Newcastle a boat called Pacific Adventures was on it’s way to Brisbane, unfourtantley it was passing Queenslands coast were Hamish was. The Pacific Adventures was filled with oils and toxic chemicals. Looking at these strong winds blowing against this very big boat, it was not pritty. Around 200,000 lires had leaked out of the Pacific Adventures.
Sixty-kilometers of Morton Island to Sunshine coast have been completely covered with oil spills and toxic chemicals. This has really lowered the impact number of tourism in this area.
There has been a massive impact on marine life around this area. The birds are really taking in hard load of difficultly and pain. Purely because they have a layer of special natural oil on their feathers that protects them from getting wet, this has unfortunately happened to the birds and when they get wet they can freeze and get extremely sick. Also because of the spill they have lots of chemicals on them and makes them sink therefore they will drown and die. Other animals are also taking it hard, they are suffering of complete and utter distraught and pain.
The local community has been giving a loving and caring hand with cleaning the beaches. This has made many people quite emotional. Also the government has been giving a helping hand. This will take a week or two to complete but as long as it gets done it will make everyone fell better. This will cost more than $700,000.
The consequences for this situation was the money for the cleaning is going to be billed on the ships company. There will be more on top of that and the company looking towards 1.5 million dollars and the captain half a million I totally agree with fining and everything but was it the captains fault?

The Archibald prize is a contest for painters. The participators in this contest have to paint a person or persons, who they paint is up to them but the portrait has to be of someone well known. Artists any age can participate in this extravaganza.
Just recently the Archibald prize was held in Bendigo Australia. The Archibald prize is like the Arias, Logies and Grammies but instead of singing and acting it’s art. This is a very big a successful festival for Austrailan artists. There are lots of rules in this challenging contest such as: Only use PAINT, only allowed to paint a person or persons or to express in a face like form of the persons personality. The Archibald prize has many compeditors and is extremly hard to win. It’s not just mucking asround withwith a paint brush like the Bald Archies it’s serious. The annual competition has been running for eighty-eight years. The paintings have to be portraits or disqualified. $50,000 is at stake but if you don’t get this don’t worry there are a few other contests. Ther is the peoples choice award which the unpackers, packers and hangers choose which portrait they like best. If you don’t think this is also not for you why don’t you try the Bald Archies contest and that is for ridiculous and funny pictures a.k.a bad art.
These contests are great to enter and participate. If you think you are good enough to enter give it a go. If you like viewing art go have a look it’s open till 22nd of March.

Orang-utans are becoming majorly endangered. It’s not just cutting down trees but it’s also what is in food products. The difference between Male and Female Orang-utans is the male has wider cheeks and a chubby neck so they can make a loud noise to communicate if their indanger. Orang-utans are mainly from Borneo and Sumatra in South East Asia off the border. Orang-utan meens Person of the jungle.
A teenage girl called Hanana has had over two hundred stiches on her leg from one shark attack. As you can see these kinds of attacks can be very serious. This horrid and gastly situation happened in Tasmania. She is one of australia bravest teenages she fought and fought to survive and how amazed people are because she has lived to tell the tale.
Bushfires are brutal, two hundred people have been killed and alot of people are in unstable comditions. So many families have been lost. The churchill fire was started by a arsonist. This is very dissapointing.
Many kind hearted members of the Red Cross and other charities and of cousre the public has donated, pens, pencils, books for schools. Money, clothes and accessories for others who have emoitionaly been through the horrible fires. The victims are living in tents. The fires have hit so many places. Marysville, Kinglake, Churchill and Wilsons Prom were and still are the majors. The minors but still pretty horrible are Horsham, Bendigo, Healsville and more.
