Wow! Those pictures of the explosion were crazy! The actual explosion was huge! The destruction is horrible. I actually don't exactly approve of any social media, because who knows what people can do, maybe steal your information, and much more. We were planning on watching the meteor shower! I hope it isn't cloudy! Did anyone get to see Neowise comet? We kept trying, but there were clouds in that direction every time we tried! Oh well, we only have to wait 6,800 years. Not too bad! XD That was such a cute and cool idea with the two boys selling lemonade! There are a lot of people that go, lets raise money, but a lemonade stand is too common and boring. They raised a ton of money on that though! Way to go boys!

@Riley D

Yes I saw the comet. Multiple times! Sorry you didn't get to. :-\ Anyone else realize that this is the last World Watch New in 3 in WORLDteen before World Watch starts?

Can someone tell me what

Can someone tell me what happened?

@ Kiara

Well, it was talking about the big explosion in Beirut, like in the News Byte yesterday, also about some new TikTok copycat that Facebook made, because TikTok is "under fire". (I think TikTok is an app where people can share videos of themselves dancing, or something. If you didn't know)
On August 12, we're going to have a big meteor shower, although you could see it now, apparently. Also it was talking two little boys in England who started a lemonade stand to raise money for kids in Yemen. They've already raised thousands of dollars worth! They called their stand "Lemonade for Yemen-aid".
I think that's all, and sorry it probably didn't make any sense. :-)

@KN

Thank you! It made perfect sense! Can't wait to see the meteor shower!!!!!! Did it say what time you can see the meteor shower?

@ Kiara

Well, no, but I would guess at night. ;-)

@Kiara J

So we took a summer astronomy course, and they talked about it. surprisingly, the guy said that the best time to go out is about 2, 3 or 4:00 in the morning! Just a few hours before the sun comes up. If that helps you at all.

this is Mylee

I am so happy people are helping out . my couisins said that facebook was doing this and showed me how it worked. i never do tic tocks but my cousins do.

The new Copie -cat tik- tok

I think tik- tok is bad for kids to use, and It's NOT a safe app ether ! My Mom said the tik- tok app tracks were you live . So in conclusion this new tik tok app thing shouldn't go viral or famous. This is all in my own opinion. I understand if anyone doesn't agree with me :) The explosion is so sad and hart breaking! :( Those boys are so caring and I think THEY should go viral and/or famous! did anyone get to see any meteors ? I wasn't able to :(.

Tik tok is a meh app

I swear I can't go to school without having girls do the dances, pretty much ever single girl I know does Tik Tok. The girls even made my teachers do the dances. If you are kind of annoyed by this tell me.
