Fines are increased! by Natàlia Español  


Yesterday, the antifraud controls of the stations to prevent the people who try to sneak in without paying the ticket were hardened by Renfe. The minimum fine for this kind of offence is, now, about 50 Euros (whereas before it was 9.3 Euros), and it will be the same for the whole public transport system in the metropolitan area of Barcelona. Also, if the passenger pays the fine instantly, it will be reduced to 25 Euros. In addition, it is said by the company that there are going to be more policemen who will keep an eye on the inside of the train and the stations too.


Barcelona hit by an Earthquake! by lbert vinaixa



Last Monday September thirteenth, Barcelona was shook by an earthquake.

It is still being me asured but it was big enough to destroy parts of the buildings. It didn’t cause any death, but a crew of people were several injured. All the buildings near the sea were flooded by a little tsunami caused by the earthquake. The destruction of the roads caused by driving accidents during the earthquake was the biggest problem.

This newspaper wants to give help to all the people affected by the earthquake by telling this story and giving their all our support.

Last Saturday, there was a concert in Razzmatazz 3.

Three music bands played and the last one was playing one of the last songs, but some things made that the last one. All the people were very excited and they were all jumping and having fun. Then, the guitarist jumped too, and he fell down on the drums, and they were destroyed. Lots of plastic cups were thrown by the spectators at the drummer. One of them was warned by the security officer and another cup was thrown at him. They started to fight and the concert was stopped by the people who organized it.

It was a big end for a big concert.

Great gig for Adam's Apple! by Benoît


Last night at Razzmatazz 3 a concert was made by three music bands to their friends and family. But we focus our aim at Adam's Apple, a band composed by four boys that in this night have been playing covers of others bands.

They appeared and people started whistling louder and shouting euphorically. The concert starts well until the singer and rithm guitar made signals to the others saying that his pedal was off because it's battery was finished. The singer become nervous but he plug out the jack off the pedal and smiled.

So the concert finished quite well and they were congratulated by all of their friends and family members.

Instantaneous combustion! By Mireia Castaño


The explosion was seen by a group of tourists in the Upper East Side (Manhattan). When the firefighters and the police arrived the loft had been completely swallowed by the flames and in the bedroom there was a women’s body lying on the floor totally carbonized. The strange part of it all is that when the professionals inspected the loft and the body, searching for explosives, nothing was found by them. Nobody knows what happened last night, but a reporter sent by the magazine discovered that the police have been warned by an anonymous person about another explosion in 24 hours.



No more smoking! by Bernard


A couple of days ago, authorities planned a new law: "No more smoking people in front of hospitals and schools". Before the law was standing, people with a little bit of good sense, should have seen that, smoking in front of health institutions and buildings where children could breathe that smoke, it is not healthy. Not only for the people around the smokers, but for themselves too. Anyway, whatever people say, someone should be more sensible and say that those type of acts have to be punished. So far, since the law was standing, more than five people have been fined for smoking in front of that buildings. When did our world start going mad? No one knows...



Trouble at Sea World! by Sara Lomas


Yesterday, at the 5 PM dolphin show that took place at the Orlando’s sea aquarium, FL, a professional trainer was attacked by a dolphin. The attack happened in front of all the public, including 54 children with their parents.

The dolphins, after a good performance, were being congratulated with a fish by the trainer. Suddenly, the trainer’s hand was caught by a dolphin named Neptuno, who took her under the water for several minutes, in front of terrified spectators. Luckily Neptuno decided to let her go and she was finally able to go to the surface and save her life. The trainer’s scared but gracious face had a sense of being reborn who is leading normal life.

This attack can be compared to the attack of the whale, one year ago, which ended to being a real tragedy that no one is going to forget.

The fact that the dolphins were in captivity and under pressure of becoming more aggressive and developing psychological disorders, it’s being advised against by Green Peace. So the act of giving freedom to all of these animals, that end up with these dangerous shows is being advised against by this important animal care association.

Finally, these performances are going to be canceled temporally by the manager of the sea aquarium, until they find out which problem caused this tragic accident.

Last Saturday, a soccer game was played by F.C. Barcelona and Hercules.
