evo morales steps down as president of bolivia

On 10 November, the president of Bolivia, Evo Morales, said he would resign (give up his job) after weeks of protests. He has been leader of the South American nation for nearly 14 years. Who is Evo Morales? Morales became the president of Bolivia in 2006. He is a member of the Aymara, a group of South American people who live in Bolivia and Peru. He was the country’s first indigenous leader. Indigenous people are the descendants of those who lived somewhere before another culture arrived and took over. What did Morales achieve? During his time in charge, the number of people in extreme poverty in Bolivia fell from 38% of the population to 17%. However, some people said Morales didn’t do enough to stop corruption (dishonest behaviour by those in positions of power).…

mammoth bones found in mexico

More than 800 mammoth bones have been discovered in ancient traps in Mexico. It is thought that hunters used the traps around 15,000 years ago. Mammoths were related to today’s Asian elephants, but went extinct around 10,000 years ago. Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History has been investigating the site in Tultepec, north of Mexico City, for 10 months. Researchers from the institute found about 14 woolly mammoth skeletons in the two traps, which are roughly 1.7 metres deep and 25 metres wide. The traps were first spotted in January 2019 during work to clear the land for a rubbish tip. The scientists think that groups of 20–30 hunters would have used burning torches and spears to separate one of the mammoths from a herd and force it into a…

australia declares emergency over fires

At least three people have died and more than 200 homes have been destroyed in fires in eastern Australia. On 11 November there were more than 120 fires burning across New South Wales (NSW), in the south-east of Australia, and in Queensland, in the north-east. Fire chiefs say the blazes could be the most dangerous Australia has ever seen – thousands of people have had to flee their homes and hundreds of schools have shut. On 8 November, fires started to spread quickly, especially in NSW. There has been a drought (a long period of time with little or no rain) in the NSW region since 2017, which means it is very dry. Firefighters are struggling to control the blazes because hot weather and winds are spreading the fires. By 11 November,…

Experts describe the endangered penguin as an antisocial bird that communicates by giving a high-pitched scream. A YOUNG CLIMBER Nine-year-old Pearl Johnson has reached the top of a 914-metre cliff called El Capitan, in California, US.

dramatic flooding hits the uk

On 7 November, heavy rain caused widespread flooding across parts of northern and central England. At least one person has died; 500 homes have been flooded; and people from 1,200 properties have had to leave their homes. What happened? More rain fell in 24 hours in the counties of Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire than would normally fall in a whole month. This caused rivers such as the River Don in South Yorkshire to flood, and several towns and cities were overwhelmed with water. People who live in Bentley, near Doncaster in South Yorkshire, were moved to safety, and the village of Fishlake, about 10 miles from Bentley, was flooded. Some people said it was the first time this had happened in 100 years. In Sheffield, dozens of people in Meadowhall shopping centre…

the week in history

16 November 2015 Huge diamond is discovered On 16 November 2015, a huge diamond called the Lesedi La Rona was discovered in Botswana in southern Africa. At the time, it was the largest diamond found in more than 100 years, and the second largest ever discovered. The 1,111-carat stone (a carat is the measurement of a diamond’s weight) was 222 grams and was unearthed in a mine about 300 miles north of Gaborone, the country’s capital. The diamond was later sold to a diamond dealer for around £41million.…
