Flash Flood

This Cyclone Hit Australia In 2006

Australia has been hit by yet another natural disaster as floods swamped parts of the south east of the country.

Towns near the Bellingen River in the state of New South Wales, north of Sydney, have been cut off by heavy rain and declared natural disaster zones.

Thousands of people were stranded as the river levels rose, but they're now showing signs of dropping again.

Officials say the bad weather looks set to continue for a while, but they're pretty sure the worst is over.

Over the past few months, different parts of the country have had to deal worth flooding, heat waves, cyclones and wild fires.

The first book that was read to me by my learning buddy in Sunnybrook School was Harry potter and the Sorcerer's stone. I was bowled over by the book and it took me to a different world. Harry, Ron and Hermione became my friends as well.

No. Edit: To clarify, not everyone's opinions matter on every topic. For example, my opinion on how I feel about quantum mechanics doesn't matter because I know almost nothing about it, and I definitely don't know it on a level where I could describe it accurately with math. Or, if someone is to show time and time again that they have no idea what they're talking about for a specific subject, their opinion about it obviously matters less since they're most likely just willfully uninformed. For worldly things like you might see in the Dear Dish-It section, still not everyone's opinions matter though input, even if silly, is usually a good thing.

While there are quote ''good opinions'' there are supposibly ''bad opinions'' So does every one's opinion truly matter? dispite what they taught us in school.
