14-year old Kieron Hawkins and his friends shaved their hair into a new style~bold, for a joke to experience what it feels like. But their school didn't see what's funny.

Head teacher, Colin Taylor said their extreme hair-dos broke school rules. And because of that, the kids have to take their own lessons in a corridor.

Mr. Colin Taylor made this punishment the school insisted their students knew what was expected and had to learn consequences of their actions.

After the boys have been sent back in class, Kieron said, "It's only hair. I don't feel that it's got anything to do with my learning and it's got nothing to do in anyone else's learning, so it's not affecting anyone in a major way."

Kieron's experience of being bold had been tough.

Pupils in some schools would try to make different kinds of knots including, giant, thin at the front, and other ones that'll make their school ties look great and cool. But not in Sutton Coldfield (West midlands of England), tying their school ties ina attractive way have been banned. The teachers in that school said that the way students are doing it, makes their lovely uniform look messy. And so, they'll have to wear the clip-on ones.

So, do you do that fancy tie-up too?

In Argentina, the scientists released a total of 4 Andean condors into the wilderness as part of a "help save the world's largest bird of prey" program.

These Andean condors have wingspans of more than 3 meters and was once common when looking into the skies of South America. But now, only a few thousands were left because of the destruction of their homes.

4 chicks condors were born during captivity and were looked after before their releases. For the first year, the experts will keep watchful eyes upon them by using the radio transmitter and to feed them until they are OK to set off on their own.

Luis Jacome, a scientist, had been working on the protection of condors for 20 years and he had been breeding the chicks at a zoo called Buenos Aires. There, a total of 29 birds had been introduced to their real homes.

There was a bomb blast in the capital of Pakistan on Sunday. Today, the rescuers are still searching for survivors in all 290 rooms at Marriott Hotel, Islamabad.

They found at least 53 people killed and 266 more injured after a explosion at the hotel. The truck fulled with explosives that made this destruction, burst into flames and made a eight meter deep crater. This place, where bombing had all occurred, is in a popular area filled with tourists, businessmen and politicians. Pakistan has a violent bombing history (scary) and this hotel is not the first time being the target. So far, no one's confessed having anythings to do with the bombing stuffs... Be very careful when you go and visit Pakistan!!!

Have you ever seen a black fox? Probably not because they are extremely rare in species. Then one day, Kevin Hehir spotted one creeping around in a graveyard north west of England. This type of creature are suppose to bring bad luck to ones who sees them, but Mr. Hehir isn't worried. He said that it won't make any difference cause he gets bad luck anyway.

Long ago, the fox is to be said as black as the night sky but it can also be called silver fox. So then it can live in men's shadow and never be seen.

Mr. Hehir is worried for the animal's safety cause these foxes are used to be bred for their fur. And because of that, he doesn't want anyone to know exactly where it is. A man who stuffs animals for living had already offered him £1,000 for telling him exactly where Mr. Hehir saw the fox.

Political Science is the study of public principles, public systems, public behavior and governments which includes political parties, elections, and public administration. It deals with very important values ~ equality, freedom, justice, and power. It’s likewise related to economics, history, law, philosophy, and sociology. It may help to increase the growth and the spread of democracy during our modern times. Political scientists developed useful materials for education for those who are needs learning. Without the training of political science, the democratic society we are in would not be able to prosper.

In Beijing, China, industries were found selling powdered milk that are contaminated with melamine in baby formulas causing kidney stones. Melamine is a type of chemical that are used in fertilizers, cleaning products and to make plastic products.

On Monday, China's Ministry of Health declared that another baby had died, which makes 2, from drinking the Sanlu Brand. But, there are still 1,253 people that are sick in hospitals. Many complaints have been heard that Chinese regulators have failed to detect the problems in food safety and letting in dangerous products to different countries.

The imported tainted milk powders were added to drinks like milk tea, milk , desserts like pudding, and anything that contained "milk" in it. So beware everyone! You will need to watch out for what you are eating and drinking!! Remember this, and warn the others: "Watch out, contaminated Dairies are spreading over!!!"
