New research has found out that junk food advertising is targeted at children.
The study took eight days and three channels of New Zealand tv. In that time they analysed over 10,000 advertisements, of which about 1800 were for food.
Over two thirds of the ads. were for food which should not be aimed at children.
Nearly 90 percent of  the bad ads  were shown during  the time that most people watch TV.
It found one third of unhealthy food ads. included a promotional character and one third contained an offer, like a give-away.

my opinion: it looks yum and they shouldn't put the ads on TV

Upside down cafe

September 23, 2016
what a new cafe in Germany has been made upside-down
a Cafe, found near Frankfurt, opened earlier this year and tourists are coming to take photographs in the building.
The cafe is designed to look like a family home, owned by the Toppels, but  all the furniture is upside-down as well
The toilet and bath are all Topsy turvy in the bathroom the visitors love to pose with their heads in the loo.

 the Visitors seem to be more interested in photographs than food but there are nibbles and beverages available for those willing to pay the(NZ$7) entrance free
in my opinon i would like to see that house

May 10, 2017
  have any of you  played this game at school. 
 what  tag might become a sport. You  run around with your friends trying not to be caught by the person who is ‘in’.
A group of people want to turn the game of tag into an official sport.
They want to put together a global competition, with tag 
in my opinion  if tag  becomes  a sport i would like to play it.       i wonder if the rules are different or if you are in teams
