Russia and Cuba sign defense cooperation deal until 2020

   In order to provide military improvement to Cuba and then more modern tecnology, Dmitri Rogozin, russian minister, and Ricardo Cabrisas Ruiz, Minister Council of Cuba, sign a deal during a meeting between the two countries in Havana, Cuba's capital.
   According to Rogozing, the dealing does not apply to military sellings: the only objective is to make Cuba a nation not so late, military talking. Guns and the army of Cuba today are the same as decades ago, durng the cold war and when the Sovietic Union still existed. With this comprmise, Cuba is gonna have enough power to keep up with nowadays challenges.
   It's important to remember the Dictator Fidel Castro, who ruled over Cuba along the last decades, died no less than 3 weeks ago. With this, thousands of Cubans, espeacially in Miami, U.S, cellebrated his death, as one of the worst "leaders" world has seen passed out.

Germany launches program to help immigrants repatriation

    A few years ago, large series of conflicts in Middle East forced massive groups of people to get out of their country and then flee from the constant war. These amount of immigrants went to a lot of places around the world, espeacially Europe. There, unfortunelly, xenophobia, terrorist attacks, and the simple lack of space made the life of the immigrants harder. Few country were accepted well the amount of people going through their borders.
    Nowadays, with the end of the war starting to become visible, some countries, such as Germany, want to help immigrants to ge back to their places. This nation who, ironically, was one of the best helpers from the outsiders, is going to provide the equivallent to 530 million reais for immigrant repatriation in their own countries. This process is gonna happen during the next 3 years.

South Korea president is suffering impeachment

    South Korea president, Park Geun-hye, is suffering the process of impeachment in her government, because of lots of corruption scandals. Her exit from the presidence, which was approved by the 234 ministers ( against the 56 who were against it ), means all her power will be transferred to the first-minister Hwang Kyo-ahn, who has now control of the army and the decisions in the external politics.
    President Park, the first woman in presidence of South Korea, had her schemes discovered when one off her friends, seeking power and advantages, started giving Park "advices" of how to control the country. Her friend, altough, had no qualifications to such a thing, and then the investigations started.

Mexican cement factory offers to build Trump's wall

   Chihuahua Cements, a mexican cement (obviously) company offered to build one of the promises from the next american president Donald Trump: A wall. Apparently, nothing can get between a good trade or business and, ironically, mexicans are going to build a barrier that separates them from the U.S.A. This attitude, considered quite misunderstood by a lot of people, was justified by the fact it will generate a large bunch of jobs and it will be well paid... if Trump accepts it, because, as it was shown before, he said the mexicans would pay for the wall.
   Although his speech is tough and Trump appears to be racist against immigrants, it's not so simple at all. There ALREADY is a wall between U.S and Mexico, that last for 30% of their borders. This wall was built around 20 years ago during mandate of Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton husband. Apparently, this improvement in the barriers have the objective to stop just the illegal imigrants who, actually, do a large percentage of crimes in the region. While some people in U.S.A are worried because they think they might be deported out of the America, there is no risk at all, as long as they aren't in an illegal situation in the country.

1 tonne crocodile is found in Sri Lanka

Last monday near the city of Matara ( Sri Lanka ), a giant crocodile was found, stuck in an watercurse. The reptile, who is almost 1 tonne and has at least 5 meters has been seen "trapped" into a small river no far from a city in Sri Lanka. Somehow, the animal managed to get stuck into some kind of hole, where the population saw him. The people were very surprised by the height of the crocodile: They have never seen such big one in the region. In the end, it was removed from the watercourse with the help of a bulldozer. The animal didn't seen to bother the machine and he was put again into the river, where he slowly swimmed away.

Donald Trump is confirmed to be the new president of U.S.A

In this Tuesday, after an intense election, Donald Trump, from the republican party, was selected as the 45° president of United States. Against almost all the election surveys, he beat Hillary Clinton, who was against him and who is from the democrat party. Although a lot of people may think he wasn't a good choice for a president and maybe he would cause a new World War and problems with imigrants, he seems to have an actual pretty good relation with Vladimir Putin, Russian president, and looks like he is going to focus his attention on the illegal imigrants. Previously, he insinuated that he would dare build a wall to stop Mexicans to cross the border between them and U.S.A. While some people thought it would be a very xenofobic treat, others prefer to think this was necessery because of the weaks immigrant control politics that run in the country nowadays.

In the Internet, people manifestated in a huge variety of ways, through internet "memes". Here are some of them:

Waiter breaks finger of 2000 years old statue in British Museum

Hundreds of years ago ( to not say thousands ) a statue was built in Greece, named Venus from Townley. Although the original one was lost through history, a well made copy was found in 1775 in Rome. In fact, the name "Townley" referes to the guy who bought the copy found 241 years ago; and then, the heirs of this man sold the statue to the British Museum in 1805, where it belongs since then.

So, a few days ago the Museum was closed for a private party who would take place in the local. While preparing the food and taking care of everything, one of the waiters present acidentally hit the right hand of the statue with a powerful headbutt, what broke the statue's thumb. Considering the importance of the artifact to the Museum, it was restored and sent back to the museum. If the waiter was fired or not, we will never know.

Brave puppies "fight" against bear and save the day in California

In this Thursday morning 2 little puppies barked at a bear that was near a garden in Bradbury, California. Their owner, Christine Downs, took some photos of her dogs while they were trying to scare the wild animal away, a brown, 2 meters tall, bear. The dogs, who aren't bigger than a poodle, obviously were more than a match for the poor bear, who quikly left the area. With 2 dogs that looked more like giant wolf beasts, the bear decided it was not a clever idea to invade the yard. Nobody got hurt, althoug the bear will need some treatment after the incident.

Scientists discover the biggest dinossaur in Brazil until then

The biggest dinossaur in Brazil until the present day was discovered in São Paulo. The dinossaur, who is 25 meters long (just like 2 buses) and lived in our planet during the Cetacean period was named in honor to the greek god of the seas: Poseidon. It's scientific name is Austroposeidon magnificus, because, due to it's enormous size and height, it should probably make the ground shake, just the sea god "used" to do.

A. magnificus is the bigger one in this picture. Scientists suppose it used to eat the leaves in top of the trees.
The bones of this dinossaur were discovered almost 70 years ago, but just a week ago it started being studied. "We were really surprised" said the paleontologists. "We have never seen such big creatures in our territory. When we first find the bones of this colossus, we thought it was a mistake and we didn't try to search more about it. Now we see how wrong we were".
The A. magificus, which fossile we still don't know if it was from a boy or a girl, used to have a natural predator, according to scientists. But they are not sure of who used to hunt this huge beast.
