 WHY: Because they could hear the swimmers and leaped to kind of join in.

WHAT:Sunday the 11th at Island Bay in Wellington, 70 swimmers went swimming because was part of the 9 day island-bay festival. Surprisingly a pod of dolphins heard the swimmers through the water and leaped to the swimmers and kind of joined in. Most people reckoned that it looked like 'the dolphins were mainly mucking around' next to the swimmers then continued mucking around with the surf-lifeguards on there paddle boards. During that time another pod of dolphins came and played. Then the both pods slowly leaped back to sea.

The nine-day island bay festival began Saturday the 10th. On Friday the 9th in the afternoon a pod of around 6 dotted through Oriental Bay.Less than 4 weeks ago, a big pod of dolphins, which some said it was close to one hundred dolphins which amazed swimmers.

NASA tests world’s biggest rocket


NASA TEST WORLD'S BIGGEST ROCKET

NASA has tested a huge rocket and when I say huge rocket I mean the world’s biggest rocket. They took the test in an American desert.
There cameras usually struggles to capture the rocket’s motor tests because the flames in the motor are burning too bright.NASA got a new type of camera to make shore this problem will not happen at all.
The power of the rocket’s blast was filmed using lots of slow motion shots being recorded at the same exact time.The next rocket test launch will not  be until 2018 but this should keep you fuelled up till then ; ). πŸš€
IN MY OPINION:
I think this is quit cool I wonder how the tests went????? 
what do you think??
what type of new cameras do you think they used??
I wonder how wide and long the rocket is and who built the rocket??

Switzerland town bans cameras


A little town in Switzerland has just decided to make a new rule of baning cameras.

Any person found using a camera will be fined around 10 NZ Dollars. person said the town is supper pretty it will cause extreme unhappiness for people who see the pictures on social media.

“It is scientifically proven (that) beautiful vacation photos on social media make the viewers unhappy, because they themselves cannot be on the spot,” the tourist said in statement.Naturally, the office recommends visiting the village of BergΓΌn to avoid this dreaded FOMO.

IN MY OPINION:
I think that, that it is not fair because you might not have good memory's camera pictures help you remember stuff unless you draw but what if your bad at drawing? or it is something you can't draw???πŸ“·πŸ“Έ

Auckland could get schools without feilds

Auckland could get schools without fields


In Auckland some of there schools will have no school Fields attached to the schools.


They have not conformed yet if that is going to actually going to happen or if it will happen at all.  They have not confirmed when it will start happening, as they are still looking into it.

They are doing this because large areas of land associated with a traditional school could be hard or expensive to acquire.


IN MY OPINION:
At first you would not be use to having no feild but then you would slowly get use to it.  It would be sad if someone push you over and you could not stop your self, you would not hurt yourself as much if you landed on grass.  What do you think about having no feild at our School???πŸ“–
