The World News Crossword - Nov 5th, 2017

The World News Crossword - Nov 5th, 2017

The World News Crossword is reviews last week’s news events. It’s simple to complete and can be an individual or a small group activity. It will prompt discussion about the world. This week there were corrupt government officials and NGO workers. There was a deadly typhoon in Vietnam. A new ape discovered in Sumatra and some presidents did some strange things - all of which will stimulate discussions, probably beginning with ‘Why...’ And perhaps students will learn that their smartphones can be used to read the news or research places, people, and events. Last week’s news went from a Yemeni rocket to a German zucchini. Saudi Arabia intercepted a rocket fired from Yemen. They also intercepted some corrupt princes and politicians. Catalonia’s president was sacked, Lebanon’s PM quit, and Iceland’s president asked the Left-Green Movement to form a government. Zimbabwe’s president said he favoured the death penalty and Aung Sun Suu Kyi finally visited the area in her country where genocide has been carried out by her country’s army. The US president’s twitter account was shut down and Michelle Obama advised all children not to tweet everything they think because most of it’s rubbish that no one wants to know about. (I wonder which child she had in mind?) Cockatoos attacked Australia’s already slow broadband, a new species of ape was discovered and immediately declared endangered, and scientists said they now know why 90% of mammoth fossils are from males. Ferrari announced it would report a billion Euro profit, a Hong Kong businessman sold his skyscraper for $US 5 billion, and the Red Cross announced that over $US 2 million was stolen by its staff in Sierra Leone during the Ebola crisis. In France the language authority said no to gender-neutral language, in Switzerland a 7 year old ran away from her parents, took a train to Geneva airport, and snuck onto a plane, and in Germany a man found a bomb in his garden, but it turned out to be a sinister-looking zucchini.
