The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.
As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".
During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.
Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru!
Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.
If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.

Thank you, Ms. Zhang

If some of you don't know, our principal Ms. Zhang will be retiring from our school. As someone who represented the Stuyvesant spirit, she truly cared about the wellness of each Stuyvesant student. She stood up by us in times of desperation, and stood up for us in times of need. We are all deeply saddened by this news, and I believe that our principal should hear each of our appreciation toward her. She might be leaving our school, but what she has left us will always firmly stay within our hearts.

Please leave a message in this Google form to show your appreciation to Principal Zhang.

All messages will be shown to her. Let's give her a warm and fulfilling end to her Stuyvesant journey.

A newly-classified fossil gives clues to how life in the oceans recovered from a mass extinction about 250 million years ago.
The reptile is an early relative of the ichthyosaurs - a large group of marine reptiles that swam in the Jurassic and the Cretaceous periods. Most were dolphin-like in shape with streamlined bodies and long snouts. Measuring 1.6 metres in total length, it was one of the largest marine vertebrates of the time.

According to Qianjiang Evening News reports, a city in eastern China, Shaoxing, is tackling negligent dog owners with a new driving licence-style system. Each owner initially has 12 points which are then gradually docked for breaking the rules. The biggest penalties are reserved for owners who use their pets to cause deliberate wounding, and those who abandon or abuse their animals - they'll lose all 12 points and be banned from reapplying for an ownership licence.

China’s second largest telecommunication company, #ZTE (#中兴通讯), which is responsible for 3.5% of the world's smartphone technology, faces restrictions from the U.S. in export due to China's violation of its trade limit to Iran, which will have a blow on the flow of operations for the company. The U.S. sees the mass export of smart phones and semiconductors to the middle east as a potential threat to US due to the smart phones having a tendency of being used to set off explosives as done by many terrorist organizations. However, the ZTE posted on its website that it will "continue to cooperate and communicate with all U.S. agencies as required."
