    Maria Sharapova failed doping test during Australian Open because of the injuries healing. She said she will take the full responsibility and she has received an prohibited substances list and the WTA hasn’t announced a penalty. She has been sidelined from the injuries.
    I think this is good when she has to heal her injuries but she shouldn’t go to join the game which is what she did and now she probably deserves a penalty.

    “Canada should ban sale of dog and cat fur: MP”
    “Canada should ban sale of dog and cat fur: MP” was about a person named Don Davies has sponsored a new electronic petition calling on the government to ban the importation of dog and cat fur into our country. If the petition gains one hundred thousand (100,000) signatures by May 17, it will be formally introduced into the House of Commons. So he was encourage people to sign the petition and saved dogs and cats.

    My opinion:
    Even though I am not an animal lover, I also think fur is a horrible fashion. Imagine that wearing a death animal on your body, how gross is it. After I read the article, I learn that the proceed of making fur is very cruel. There have more than one millions of dogs and cats are killed in horrible and painful ways in the world, to make fur or other product. This article make me feel those animals are so poor.


    In a bizarre North Vancouver kidnapping in September, Tian Yi Zhang and Casey Hiscos, face charges of kidnapping a Chinese national with intent to hold him for ransom.

    It’s really important abut how the quality is of the food we eat everyday.
    Because we eat EVERYDAY,so it DOES matter.
    Although everyone will die, at least I don’t want to die because what I eat.
    No one want their families or lover get ill because what they eat.
    So I think it is really important to improve as soon as possible.


    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared on the CBS show 60 Minutes Sunday, and talks about defend Syrian refugee settlement program, “Ultimately being open and respectful towards each other is a much more powerful way to diffuse hatred and anger than … big walls and oppressive policies,”. And he said about that americans should pay more attention to the place for them in the world stage.

    support Syrian refugee is a way to increase Canadian people and labor resources, it might got large affection to the Canadian local workers and other job may become more competitive. And the answer to the americans also shows Canadianian’s place on the world’s stage, in the meanwhile, it is also a kind of defense and warning to the America that in the future times Canada’s power is still couldn’t be despise.


    New Zealand’s national flag will change or not.
    Referendum to decide the national flag.
    There are two reasons why people want to change the flag.
    First, current flag had Union Jack in the flag. It seems that had been dominated by the United Kingdom long time ago. So they do not want to show about it.
    Second, New Zealand’s flag is really similar with Australia’s flag.
    People are confusing which flag is New Zealand’s flag. The government want to change the flag and easy to remember to other countries.
    People do not want to change current flag.
    It will occur on March 30th.


    I support to unlock their phone because it’s about our life, our safety.

    Justin Trudeau’s presentation clarified Canadian government’s opinion on treating the refugees—-protect them and help them into the Canadian society. This is a sign that tells Canada is not going to turn her way because of neither an American candidate’s saying nor an big neighbor’s opinion.
