NAME: Lucas LOCATION: Tas WHAT DID YOU PLAY? NBA 2K21 on Xbox. WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT? I like the skill gap, which gives good players the chance to stand out. I love to play because I love basketball. I think it’s cool how you can make a player. My winning percentage is about 80. I think that is OK, but it can always be better. WHAT OTHER FEATURES DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THE GAME? The Make-A-Wish logo. You get a logo above your player’s head that indicates you are the recipient of a wish. Everyone sees that and is genuinely interested in knowing about it, which leads to people wanting to play with you. RATING: 5 OUT OF 5 BASKETBALLS YOU GET IT! As the You Rate It! star this month, Lucas has scored a book pack! Images: iStock,…

STORIES OF THE SKY Aboriginal people have looked to the sky for answers for over 65,000 years; whether it be predicting the weather or learning the right time to hunt. Across the countries, Aboriginal people have looked at the Dark Emu constellation and, depending on where the emu is sitting, they have known when to hunt or what the weather will be. To see the Dark Emu, count the dark patches between stars! Aboriginal people are the first scientists and astronomers. – Corey Tutt DEADLY FACTS OF THE MONTH 1. Did you know the…
