and they would. be repercussions to the us the problem is and this is the problem with all major environmental issues today is that the solutions aren't there but we're not acting on them so i think that we need a social movement to post leaders to take stronger action. or an aura care from the university all of oxford and keep well germany and the netherlands face off in around hoffa now in what is the standout much of this round of your own 2020 qualifies germany have already beaten the dutch in this campaign taking 3 vital points in amsterdam the return match tonight in hamburg the sell out a little wonder is germany and the netherlands one of international focus faith system rivalries. finally some sad news they ignite to top around the wall but it is gay penguins who adopted an egg skipper in paying have spent weeks taking turns to brood the egg which had been abandoned by
