Latest issue highlights

The United Nations is worried about another humanitarian disaster in Syria. This time the problem is a rebel-held enclave close to Damascus, the country’s capital city. Why did it take the UN Security Council so long to pass a resolution? Then, why was it ignored? In our latest issue, we show how these events have highlighted the UN’s limitations and its inability to impose ceasefires in this conflict.

Professor Stephan Hawking, one of the world’s best-known scientists, has died. In the latest issue, we review his life and career, describe his interest in black holes and explain why he was never awarded a Nobel Prize. Also, in what way were the date of his birth and death a coincidence?

Also in this issue:

  • Mineral never seen before*
  • First centi-billionaire
  • Secretary of state change*
  • Oldest message in a bottle
  • Nerve agent incident
  • International Women’s Day
  • Adaptive spiders in Hawaii*
  • Timor Sea border treaty signed*
  • Italy’s hung parliament*

…and much more!

(those with an * have accompanying activities/worksheets).
