This sequel of harry potter a kid’s fantasy and mystery is mainly about the order of the phoenix or Dumbledore’s army fighting against you know who as the second wizarding war breaks out  and to protect the younger generations. It also follows the story as the ministry interferes at Hogwarts and Professor Dolores Unbridge inspects the school. And how harry is despised at school because of last year’s events. As well as you know who reaching his full power and harry and him fighting for the safe of the prophecy.

The three main characters are Harry James Potter, Hermione Jean Granger and Ron Bilius Weasly who the book follows and the secondary characters Ginny, Nellie, Luna Fred and Gorge. As well as professors Umbridge McGonagall Dumbledore and Snape.

I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars because of the wonderful use of the heroes journey a popular writing technique. It is also well written by using different scenes very well throughout the book to make it even more interesting for the reader as well as using descriptive words to enchant the reader in to their wonderful universe.

I would recommend this book/series to children above the age of 7 because some of the scenes can be a bit brutal at sometimes. I would also recommend this book to anyone who has read the rest of the series or loves to read fantasy and mystery novels and books instead of realistic fiction or informative.

Alerting situations like natural disasters can make your brain go to mush that is why is important for all families especially ones in natural disaster prone areas. This will make it less stressful if a natural disaster dose occur. When a natural disaster is coming your way have everyone in the family have some jobs to prevent issues occurring like filling the bath with water, taping windows, putting down sandbags and much more. In the presence of a natural disaster experts suggest that you don’t go on the roof, it is on some T.V shows but this is unsafe. They also say that if you can evacuate the area if not possible it is best to the bathroom where there is water for long amounts of time but it should not be your first resort. Is there anything that people can do during the process of a natural disaster? Should families keep food in the bathroom or is it unnecessary? I now understand the true thought of a plan for family’s to avoid the effects of a natural disaster and the many jobs and responsibilities.

Recent droughts in Cape Town have left a lot of people sad and unhappy calling the fourth of June day zero it is where they are suggesting that the town will have no more water for the citizens to live and survive off they have held it up April to May but they are not just running out of water but livestock and crops as well prices are going up. Each person has been given 50 liters a day which they have to go and get every day but it doesn’t get them far dishes and laundry is 18 liters, 90 second shower is 15 liters 1 toilet flush is 9 liters washing your hands 3 liters, cooking and drinking 2 liters each and dog bowl water 1 liter. If the drought continues citizens will only 25 liters of water a day and people are now questioning how it got this bad in 2014 the city’s water sources were at their full capacity now as the drought has starched on the supplies have reached their limits.  I now understand the true water each person receives and how it is ever so limiting and time consuming to a normal person’s day to day life. I also understand how worrying it is to the city if it does run out of suitable and drinkable water for its citizens. If the city dose run out of water will the citizens move to another city/country or stay in Cape Town, if so then where are they all most likely to go which city or county is most convenient for them to  go to?

Story:

As 2 seeds fell off the tree and on to the floor they slowly begun to make a new tree it was surely not like any of the other trees in the dull forest but was quite unique. The tree was not tall but all of the branches where curved and all of the seeds on the tree had green triangular spikes that covered the whole seed. The seed where not normal but looked like two seeds joint together at the center and you could say that all of this madness and uniqueness all started from just two simple seeds.

Natural disasters can affect many people in many different ways like floods in Pakistan in South Asia where half a thousand people were killed and 20 million have been affected. This caused more trouble than the Tsunami that hit Asia in 2004 where 230 thousand people were killed from over 14 countries. Natural disasters can take away many core resources and separate people. They have rescuers who get all people near the affected area away. Then we need clean water and Water purification tablets so disease does not spread. They also need medical assistance to help anyone if they are sick or injured. As well as packaged food so they all keep healthy and it does not go off.  And they also need shelter so people are not affected by weather and so they have somewhere to go to. Local communities also rise funds so that they can buy resources and also rebuild what was destroyed and it is often hard because there is no power the recovery process can take several years but it builds community trust and is worth it in the end. What natural disaster has affected people the most? How many people does it take to rebuild a community? I now understand that the natural disaster is only part of the issue and that recovering properly is the hard bit and all the help that is needed to make this happen for the community.

As I blinked my eyes open I looked around to see that is was still yet in English class. I heard the teacher finish the instructions. “And off you go she said,” I raised my hand. “But I didn’t understand the instructions miss,” I said. “Well,” she replied. You miss should have been listening because in fact I saw you sleeping and we were just about to dismiss for lunch but you can stay here with me to catch up on what you missed out on.” My friend patted me on the back and walked off to enjoy her lunch.

Huge cracks coming up in a valley in the city of Kenya are leading to some scientists coming to the collusion that Africa may be splitting in to two by the crack are growing longer and deeper by the day and may be fully apart in over ten million years. It was first found after a lot of heavy rain over the past month which also caused hospital walls to collapse and roads and roads and towns to be flooded. The floods caused a split reaching serval km near Mai Mahiu ripping a highway open that sucked cars and farmer’s lands and homes. And it is now 15km deep and wide. It is said that in about 50 million years for the 2 tectonic plates to come apart. They predict this because it took about the same amount of time for Africa and South America to come apart from when they were together in Pangaea about 138 million years ago from now. Do they predict that this will happen to any other countries?  If the plated keep moving will they eventually crash in to each other? I now understand the true process of how tectonic plates spread apart and what happens to the earth and people living around it while this process is happening and the rough amount of time taken to do this.
