People selling drugs on Facebook

Now you might think that social media is a friendly place to share your day to day basis with other people. Although it is all and well for you, there have been reports of people selling drugs. The drug comes on harmless paracetamol to cure your not-very bad health, however the packets have a number next to it which is P / 500. It is a new, very white and shiny paracetamol, doctors have shown to contain ‘Machupo’ virus, considered one of the most dangerous viruses in the world. There is a very high chance of you dying if you consume this drug. This virus include fever, headache, fatigue as well as including bleeding from the nose.

So you must be aware of the dangers of this so stay aware and be carefull.

The new £1 coins

Just 12 days to go until the new £1 comes out. It is out on the 28 of March 2017. Everyone is waiting for this. There are a few differences between the new coin and the old coin. As we speak 1.5 billion £1 coins are being made.

 

Why are we replacing the old coins?

The reason the old coins are being replacing is because it is said to be that 1 in 30 coins are fake. This is the first time the £1 coins are being replaced after 1983. The new £1 coins will go for more than a pound if you get the first batch of coins that were made. So beware find the first batch and you could win a lot of money.

What does the new coin look like?

The new coin looks very cool. The old coin is circular whereas the new coin has 12 sides. The new coin is a dodecagon (a 12 sided shape) it will look much better. Do you think it is much better?

 

So the new £1 coin is going to come out. You will have to grab all your old coins and replace them. I hope everyone is very excited for the new coin made by The Royal Mint.

A women and two other friends  had been in a car going home, when suddenly a gust of wind,snow and rain approached the opposite way at 94 mph that they were going in , and a few massive trees and rocks, hit their car and broke their glass, bent the top part of the car and in resulting in that, one women died and the other two people had  serious head injuries.The West Midland Ambulance said that the woman, just before when she was driving, she had suffered head injuries when a piece of debris (rubbish/ litter) fell on her top part of  her head.

Many people had suffered this high wind all across the UK: a driving instructor was lucky to brake quickly when a ginormous tree fell just 2 to 5 feet away. Also, an aeroplane lost control, but luckily gained the balance back and had to land on a different airport. Near Blackpool Tower, the Council had fitted a post which could bend in the wind like the Japanese Earthquake buildings.

How to deal with bullies

This article is to help people in certain bullying situations. It will give advice to deal with every type of bullying situations such as cyber bullying and relational bullying.

Cyber bullying:

We all know bullying is one of the biggest problems as it can bring a lot of negative emotions and people suffer depression because of it. One of the worst type of bullying is cyber bullying. This is due to the fact that people who are bullying can be anonymous. The best way to deal with this is by making your account private. Furthermore, you should be careful of the websites that you use because people can find out your personal information. This usually leads to bad events. If this does not work contact ChildLine or tell an adult that you trust.

Relational Bullying:

Relational bullying is being left out or being prevented to join a group deliberately. Most people who do this are likely to be jealous or feel left out themselves. So to deal with this problem, try to let the person who is bullying you join in, in games and various other activities before they start doing it to you.
