Speak of the (ironic) devil...

Ironic by Alanis Morissette was a very popular song in the 90's which contains lots of ironic situations like...

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
or 
It's meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife

 Listen and watch and discover more ironies in the song...In your opinion, which is the cruelest?

Malala Yousafzai, the girl who only wanted an education

Malala Yousafzai (a 17-year-old girl) is the youngest-ever Nobel Prize recipient. And she really deserves it. Malala has become the youngest activist who has been struggling for girls' education since the age of 9 years, in a place where, sadly, the Taliban ban girls from attending school.

Watch the video to listen to such inspiring words like...

One child, one teacher, one book, one pen. Education can change the world.

What did the cat took from Ethan's mum?
How many items has he stolen? Can you give examples?

1. How does Mikko think our generation will be remembered by historians hundreds of years from now?
2. What are the problems with the internet?
3. What is the first virus ever?
4. What information does the virus give?
5. Who are Basit and Amjad?
