MAIN/LOCAL/WORLD
Scandia Union broke up
Only three members remain

Raffore City, February 6 2009 – Following a major dispute between the members of the Scandia Union (SU), the newest international union on earth has broken up yesterday, with four of its members broke off to other unions. The cause of the break up of the SU is disputability the singing contests happening in SU, Scandia Vision and Singasong.

Scandia Vision, modeled after the famous Eurovision, is SU’s own singing contest aimed to bring the current seven members of SU together. Another singing contest, the Singasong, is Confederacy of Free Region’s (COFR) singing contest. Originally allowed for COFR members only, the Singasong is an inter-union singing contest between COFR and SU following the alliance between the two nations.

However, despite Scandia Vision is SU’s own get-together contest, only two members of SU (Kenosha and Trimbelina) has entered the contest. On the other hand, COFR’s Singasong have six of its seven members entering the contest. The result of this has caused disappointment between the SU members and a debate began amongst the SU members. As the argument drags on, several of the members began to blame COFR for “controlling Scandia Union too much”.

Upon hearing that comment, COFR’s chancellor, the Shalman Empire, voiced out their opinion. From then onwards, all peaceful arguments turned nasty. Aeropoli has replied to Shalman’s statement by saying that “it…doesn’t gives you [Shalman Empire] the right to voice your opinion”.

Novland counter-attacked Aeropoli’s comment by stating “COFR is our friend and they [Shalman Empire] has the right to voice their opinion”. However, it got nasty when Novland said “if you [Novland] don't like it [COFR relationship with SU], I suggest you leave SU”.

After which, Aeris, Aeropoli and Novland left the SU while Parliamentralia, Trimbelina and Kenosha remain in SU. Parliamentralia later broke off from SU a few days later after a parliamentary vote. Rorysville’s, the newest member of the SU, status in the SU is unknown at press time.

Plants now don’t need carbon dioxide
Aranium abundant in plants

Raffore City, February 5 2009 – A few weeks ago, aranium has been considered very harmful and radioactive, which had caused the destruction of Raffore Islands and the whole galaxy in the brink of collapse. In fact, the whole world was in serious threat.

On a similar case, a special planet was found in our Milky Way by the Rasa Space Expedition team over a week ago on January 28 2009. The planet’s atmosphere contains around 34% of aranium gas. In addition, all type of flora found on that planet were shown to be growing healthily despite the lack of carbon dioxide.

Several plants were brought back to earth for further examinations, and these examinations showed that large amount of aranium gas were found circulating around the plants. All of the plants that has been brought back to earth have also showed that each of the plants have at least lived for over 9 000 years, longer than the oldest living plant on earth which is only over 5 000 years old.

Almost similar results have showed at several plants that were grown on Raffore Islands. All of the trees found on Changi City, Raffore Islands’ third largest city and one of the three business districts on Raffore Islands, have shown traces of large amount of aranium gas in their respiratory system; it barely contains any carbon dioxide gas in the respiratory system. Compared to the same species of plant without aranium, the plant that contain aranium appeared more healthier.

It is currently unknown if aranium have any impacts on fauna and humans.

7.5 earthquake rocks South East Asia
No damages reported, tsunami warning system activated

Raffore City, February 7 2009 – Yesterday, a 7.5 magnitude earthquake hits the South East Asian region with surprise, with its shockwaves can be felt from all around the world, as far away as Canada, Spain and South Africa.

The earthquake began at around 5.24 pm Raffore Time and lasted for about 20 seconds and, despite the dense intensity of the earthquake, no damages has been reported so far. However, as it has been reported that the epicenter is located at Raffore Islands, it is unknown whether there has been any damages on Raffore Islands due to the fact that the whole country has been evacuated.

As the magnitude of the earthquake is strong enough to cause a tsunami, the tsunami warning system within the region has been activated, prompting tsunami evacuation in Indonesia and Malaysia. Shockingly, the earthquake has also activated all tsunami warning system on earth, causing worldwide panic. However, all of the tsunami warning system has been deactivated as no tsunami has been spotted or reported.

More strangely, the epicenter of the earthquake is not located along a fault line: the nearest fault line is located about 850 m away from Raffore Islands. Due to this, there has been several fears that a near fault line has formed.
