Koalas are in trouble: Nearly a third of Australia's koalas were wiped out in just the past three years, according to new figures released by a conservation group, though some experts say real numbers are hard to establish. (It estimates the koala population to now be in the range of 32,000-58,000 — down from an estimated 46,000-82,000 in 2018.)

Australia Koalas
How many koalas are in U.S. zoos?
Koalas are only included at 10 U.S. zoos. Most of these zoos are in tropical climates (3 in Florida, 3 in California). Two Ohio zoos are the only ones in the Midwest (Columbus and Cleveland).Koalas in a captive koala breeding program cannot legally be released into the wild and likewise a wild koala in a wild koala breeding program cannot be used in a captive program.

What are Koalas?
The koala, a herbivorous marsupial that lives mostly in eastern and southern regions of the country, has become synonymous with Australia around the world. The koala is an arboreal mammal native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the Phascolarctidae family and its closest living relatives are the wombats, which are members of the Vombatidae family.
It said the worst decline was seen in the southeastern state of New South Wales, where it estimates the numbers have dropped by as much as 41 percent. The foundation said every region across Australia saw a decline in population, so, if nothing is done about this Koalas will be extinguished soon.
So one can ask why this is happening. One of the possible reasons is: Many koala populations are faced with nowhere to go when their forest habitat is destroyed by deforestation. Just in the last two years, tree-clearing has tripled in New South Wales, leaving important koala habitats incredibly fragmented or completely lost.
When were they discovered?
The fact is, the European and scientific discovery of the Koala took place between June-September 1803 and involved type specimens collected at 'Hat Hill' (Mount Kembla) in the Illawarra district of New South Wales, located on the coast 50 miles, or 80 kilometres, south of Sydney.

Saudi Arabia's prince buys english club Newcastle United
Saudi Arabia Public Investment Fund also wants to buy 3 other soccer teams, that are Inter Milan, from Italy, Olympique de Marseille, from France, and another which was not disclosed for the public.
A new richness appears in European football. The acquisition of Newcastle by a Saudi Arabian public investment fund was announced by the English club on Thursday. The values were not disclosed, but the British press speculates that the negotiation was around 300 million pounds (R$ 2.2 billion reais). He used the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia to do this. 

The acquisition came after Premier League approval. An agreement between the Saudis and the broadcaster “beIN Sports”, from Qatar, allowed the resumption of negotiations for the purchase of Newcastle. In July last year, the operation ended after the league and the British government accused Saudi Arabia of piracy in the broadcasts of the Premier League in the country.

“We are extremely proud to become the new owners of Newcastle United, one of the most famous clubs in English football. We thank Newcastle fans for their loyal support over the years and are excited to work with them” - said Yasir Al-Rumayyan, the Governor of the Public Investment Fund, on the Magpies’' official website.
This action is a bad thing, they are using money from a dictatorship to invest in soccer, and all the money is going to be invested in the dictators, and it shows sportwashing, that is a form of hiding the bad things the government did. And it shows how the sport is being too invested by big billionaires

Generations
Recently in social media, people have been talking about the generation they were born into, that is, "all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively." In different generations, there are different types of expressions, styles, the way they talk, culture and more advancement in technologies and discovering new things.
In this article I’ll show you characteristics of 3 generations: Generation X or Baby Boom, Generation Y, Echo Boomers or Millennials and Digital Natives, as known as Generation Z

Generation X 
Born between 1960 and 1980, today they are between 60 and 40 years old, this generation has many characteristics of their "parents" the Baby Boomers. We feature Generation X as people who seek career stability, discipline and respect for hierarchy. But they also reinforce the idea of freedom to be and enjoy what they want. Some of them were born when the Cold War was happening, and here in Brazil with the civil-military dictatorship, and they have lots of stories to tell.
Also this generation has high consumption power and seeks to take advantage of its economic condition in the best way.

Generation Y 
This generation can say that they were the last to know the world without the internet. Generation Y, also called Millennials because most of them came into the world at the turn of the millennium, so this name makes a lot of sense. People who are currently 25 to 40 years old, born between 1980 and 1995, Generation Y has seen the internet and technologies we have today grow and change the world, so Millennials have become much more flexible to changes. They also represent the majority of the country's economically active population. 

Generation Z 
We can say that this generation was born in a technological world, with young people more connected to the most recent events, the lives of famous people and digital influencers who they like. Born between 1995 and 2010, they are 10 to 25 years old. They are called digital natives. For GenZ, there is no time to waste.
