BTN- Disaster Recovery

Summary-Black

Recalls-Red

Questions-Blue

Insight-Green

This BTN video was about people losing their homes, have no food, water or shelter and losing people they care about.

My 1st recall, is that Natural disasters can destroy a city and a country into chaos like the recent floods in Pakistan in South Asia. More than one and a half thousand people have been killed! Around twenty million have been affected as water washed their homes away. The United Nations say that it has affected more people than the Tsunami that hit Asia in 2004.

My 2nd recall is that you need 3 things, Clean Water so that you don’t need to drink in water filled with germs, next food delivered in trucks canned food and it is much safer to be fresh. And shelter.

My 3rd recall is that the recovery process can take years, often rebuilding the entire communities from scratch. So things like schools, homes and hospitals need to be rebuilt or fixed. And that job can be made even harder when vast areas lose essential services like power.

My 1st question is that what happens if in that state a lot of people got injured and a few only survived and there wasn’t any power left?

My 2nd question is that which one is stronger a Tsunami or a Earthquake?

My insight is that I now understand that the United Nations helped South Asia when the Tsunami started.

BTN- CRICKET BALL TAMPERING

SUMMARY-BLACK

RECALLS-RED

QUESTIONS-BLUE

INSIGHT-GREEN

This BTN video was about how people in the Australian cricket team was cheating by tampering with the ball.

one of my recalls are that people are really sad that Cameron Bancroft was tampering with the ball. Also that the ball goes to the rough side but by tampering with the ball u can reverse it to go the other way.

my second recall is that a lot of people have done it but doing in it other ways maybe rubbing on their legs, sandpaper and many other ways.

my last recall is that is that Steve Smith and David Warner will be banned for 12 months, and Cameron Bancroft will be banned for 9 months for cricket.

My first question is that why do u want to win so badly in Australian  cricket do u get money?

My second question is why is Cameron Bancroft banned for 9 shouldn’t it be 12 months because he used sandpaper to make it go reverse?

My insight is I now understand that people are desperate to win but I don’t get it is it for the money?

BTN-History of Voting

SUMMARY-BLACK

RECALLS-RED

QUESTIONS-BLUE

INSIGHT-GREEN

This BTN video was about voting for something like president, senators etc. And how women couldn’t vote.

In the 1800 of Australia women couldn’t vote because they were too emotional and weren’t smart for politics. In the late 1800 women wanted to demand change, and started voting rights known as suffragettes. Suffrage to vote for politicians. 

In 1902, Australia became the first to have women vote. But it took over 2 decades to follow. Even if women could vote Aboriginals still couldn’t and they were left out. 

Until 1962 they finally let the aboriginals vote. But you had to be 21. That’s why voting is really important.

 

My 1st question is in 1902 shouldn’t they already give permission to all women like aboriginals and others?

My 2nd question is when did voting start?

I now understand that voting is very serious in Australia

BTN-SPACE MESSAGES

BTN LINK

summary-black

3 recalls-red

2 questions-blue

1 insight-green

This was about people messaging space to see if any kind of life form is in space.

For a long time, people have been gazing up at the stars wondering if something is out there in the billions of galaxies.

The first interteller was sent in 1962 in morse code and was aimed at Venus, so far there was no responce.

But then in 1974 then a group in Amercia used 2 different radio frequencies to transmit a code from Arecibo radio telescope to Puerto Rico, Also there is a problem if they want to take a message it will take 25,000 years to reach.

My question is if it takes 25,000 years wouldn’t they not be alive so how can they recieve it if they are not alive?

My other question is if they transmitted one to Venus woulden’t that take less then 25,000 years?

I wonder if Aliens are green and what we think they look like.

summary-black

recalls-red

questions-blue

insight-green

This was about 2 schools that had one mission to wipe out their waste so they can be completely clean with the bins (their bins.)

In this school they sorted Landfill bins into organic,paper and cardboard.

Every year Aussie throw out 50 MILLION tonnes of waste.

Most of the waste can be reused,recycle and compost at home or at school.

1.I wonder is the waste all over the world that makes 50 million tonnes of waste or just Australia?

2.Is that (At home) do we make organic,paper and cardboard at home?

I wonder if a company can make a bin type company.
