Breakfast Briefing for Friday
By Derek Davis
5th Jun 2020 | Local News
Did you know?Today is World Environment Day, which is the most renowned day for environmental action. Since 1974, it has been celebrated every year on June 5; engaging governments, businesses, celebrities and people on the Shotley Peninsula, to focus their efforts on a pressing environmental issue. This year's theme is biodiversity–a concern that is both urgent and existential. Recent events, from bushfires in Brazil, the United States and Australia to locust infestations across East Africa–and now, a global disease pandemic–demonstrate the interdependence of humans and the webs of life in which they exist. Nature is sending us a message. Click Environment Day

Quote of the day: We can't save the world by playing by the rules, because the rules have to be changed. Everything needs to change - and it has to start today. Greta Thunberg
Riddle of the day:I am a shimmering field that reaches far. To the horizon I span beneath the universe's largest star. Yet I have no tracks and I am crossed without paths. What am I? Answer will be revealed tomorrow.
Previous Riddle Answer:What do you go in through one hole, come out through three holes, when you're inside it you're about to go outside, and when you're outside you're still in it?
