Power Shortage!

Posted by Saniya Surana

We all hear about the approaching end of Earth’s resources, but do we really do something to secure the next generation’s future? Well, the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board has taken an initiative to cut down a little on the ever-rising power usage in the city. They have decided to suspend power for an hour everyday in Chennai and for two-hours in its suburbs.

The electricity board has guaranteed to cut the power only during the daytime, mostly between 10am and 6pm, so students are not disturbed and people will not have to spend sleepless nights after a long day. They have assured people that even the residents’ of politicians and other influential people will not be exceptions.

Weaving into a story

Do you love short stories? Do you read the kids’ magazines – Gokulam, Chandamama, Dimdima? Then you should have also read the stories by Geeta Canpadee, a writer for children.

When she spins a new story, she mails them to magazines. After they are published in print, she lets the world read it online. Yes, she publishes them on her blog.

Isn’t it a good idea?

Now, YOCee will let you know whenever she puts up her story online through this blog! Here’s a new story by Geeta aunty!

You can also read the scanned pages from the magazines where her stories are published.
But if you want to read all the stories and have fun reading the fresh-smelling magz, you should buy a copy!

We alert. You read and buy!

Good Tree

Posted by Saniya Surana

Are you concerned about Earth and its residents? If your answer is yes, then ask yourself whether you have ever fought for the cause you are deeply concerned about? I am sure a few have done so as most of us think – ‘What can I alone do anything?’

But we people tend to forget this famous determination quote – “Where there is a will; there is a way”. Yes, even you can make a dent in the hearts and minds of people without paying a penny or even exercising your limbs except for you hands to click on the mouse! You may still wonder ‘How’. Here’s a simple solution: What you need to do is just sign up on Good Tree which is a web portal where you can get to know people who share feelings which are the same as yours and that too for the same cause as you are most concerned about. You may wonder; how you can make a difference by just signing up this web portal and maybe even telling a few people about it. The catch here is that; whatever you do on this site is tracked down and revenue is generated which is given for charity, thus you can help those needy or even reduce the global warming with a simple click of your mouse! So, friends what are you waiting for? Go ahead and sign up.

Witch in a school?

Witch? In a school?
That’s weird!

But not for the kids of Warboys Community Primary School in Cambridgeshire in UK!
They love the witch on their school logo and want it to continue even when there was a poll on new logos proposed.
Read the story from CBBC Newsround here!

Does your school’s logo has something different on it?
What do you think is cool about your school’s logo and what is not?
