Avengers Infinity war is an American superhero film. This film is the film the most expensive so far (480 million dollars) and it gathers a lot of actors like Tom Holland ( Spider-man), Chris Hemsworth ( Thor ), Chris Evans ( Captain America ).
In my opinion, this film will be a very satifactory film and maybe the best film in 2018.
We are all impatient to watch this film!
I think there will be a lot of fans because the studio Marvel is the most famous and liked movie in the world.
Hi everyone !
A british designer named Anna Bullus had an excellent idea. What if the sticky stuff also known as chewing gum could be recycled and transformed in many useful objects. All of this in order to clean the streets.
Each year in United Kingdom the councils spend around £50m to clean the streets.
Ten years ago her project began while she was looking at a kerbside and trying to figure out what can be recycle.
But the question was how to convince people to "donate" their gum instead of throwing it on the sidewalk.
So, Anna created pink bins named Gumdrops. These bins are also made of used chewing gum.
The university of Winchester was the first to sign up to use these bins.
The messsage was that gums can be recycled and gave hundreds of coffee cups.
A coffee cup (like the ones below) contains something like 42 pieces of chewing-gum.
Another challenge for the british designer was to find industrial partners to realize her project.
Each object contains a minimum of 20% of chewing-gum.
The mixture is put into an injection moulding machine it is heated and then ejected as a paste, which can be moulded into new objects.
Financial support has been given to Anna's project by Wrigley.
Wrigley is an American chewing gum company.
Link of the article on BBC News: (the video is very interesting)
British designer Anna Bullus is on a mission to recycle chewing gum into useful objects, cleaning up our streets in the process. More than £14bn is spent on chewing gum around the world each year, but a lot of that gum will end up stuck to the ground.
Kerbside = bord du trottoir
Paste = pâte
Heated = chauffé
Moulded = modelé, moulé

We just read your article, and it was very good and we learned a lot of things about australian wildlife. We can feel that you made a lot of researches, and you were very precise about the information you gave.
The little thing that would have been nice, for the readers, is that you added your research sources, so we can get more informations on our owns.
We also noticed just a few things that didn't bother us. Firstly, it's really not a big deal but, you just did some typing and grammatical mistakes. Also, you weren't lucky because one of us is clearly a Box Jellyfish fan : you said "Its size varies from 10 to 80 cm depending on the species", and that really made him MAD as Box Jellyfishes can reach up to 3 meters long !!!
But in the overall, as we first said it was a very-interesting-usefull-complete-article. Don't worry, we are just maniacs.
P.-S. : Australia isn't the largest island of the world, as it is a continent! Greenland is the largest island. <3
