UK Prime Minister
Last week people all around the world were talking about the UK's new PM. His name is Boris Johnson and while he's been in politics for a long time he's known as an unconventional leader with a big personality and an unusual hairdo! We find out more about who Boris Johnson is and why his leadership could have a big impact on the UK and other countries.

FaceApp and Privacy
You might have seen a lot of pictures passed around recently of your friends or celebrities looking much older than they are. They come from a popular app called FaceApp which lets users change their appearance. But it's caused controversy because of terms and conditions which allow FaceApp to store and sell your photos. We find out more about data collection, why companies do it and how you can protect your privacy online.

Uluru Tourists
One of Australia's most famous natural wonders has been busier than usual lately. Heaps of tourists have been travelling to Uluru, with many hoping to climb the famous rock before a ban comes in in October. Some locals say it's led to an increase in rubbish and illegal camping in the area. We look at what's been happening and why the climbing ban has been put in place.

MS Readathon
This month primary school kids across Australia will be sticking their noses in as many books as possible for the MS Readathon. They'll be raising money to help people who live with a condition called multiple sclerosis or MS. We meet some kids who'll be doing the readathon and find out why it means a lot to them.

Girls Rock
We meet some kids who've spent part of their school holidays learning how to be rock stars! They took part in a program called Girls Rock which is designed to show kids that music is for everyone.
