They re a lunch box luxury so when will bananas be back to. normal prices, We join a charity sleep out to raise awareness about homeless. And why brushing only once a day could mean dental decay. Hi I m Nathan Bazley welcome to Behind the News Also on the show. we send Alfie to join a group doing competitive aerobics But before. Reporter Nathan Bazley, INTRO America seems to be getting bad grades not in the. classroom but in its economy The country was rated Triple A now. it s only double A plus It still sounds pretty good but the effect of that. drop could cost the country trillions of dollars So let s find out why. their grades took a tumble, NATHAN BAZLEY REPORTER If you got a double A on an. assignment you would pretty much be the best student in the world. America s economy was just awarded the same mark but the. reception hasn t been quite as good It s been taking some big hits. after getting what sounds like a great grade Let s find out why. Arguments between people usually cause trouble But when was the. last time an argument might have caused a whole recession Well an. argument between these two people the President of the United. States and the leader of their opposition might have done just that. America s government has been spending more money than they earn. for ages And lately it s hit the ceiling of how much the government. could borrow How much are we talking Well they owe 14. TRILLION dollars That s 14 with 18 zeros, So Obama put out his hand as many presidents have done before. OLIVER Please sir can I have some more, The opposition weren t happy because they felt that the government.
should be cutting debt not borrowing more But things were a bit. more desperate than that, BARACK OBAMA US PRESIDENT There s plenty of ways out of this. mess but there is very little time We need to reach a compromise by. Tuesday so that our country will have the ability to pay its bills on. So the countdown was on and when the clock clicked down to zero. America wouldn t be able to pay what it owes which is known as. defaulting So who wouldn t be paid Well these guys for one. soldiers on the front line in Afghanistan, ARMY OFFICER If the debt ceiling doesn t get raised we re not. going to have enough money to pay our bills, But more than government workers not getting a pay cheque experts. said the whole economy could crumble both in America and in other. parts of the world if that was allowed to happen So both sides started. negotiating, The countdown was only hours from disaster when they finally hit on. a solution that both gave them more money and cut spending. OBAMA Now this process has been messy and it took far too long. But the deal passed so everyone took a big sigh of relief and America. lived happily ever after Well no the damage had already been done. Countries have a report card like system of how good they are at. paying back borrowed money, Australia is triple A as is the UK and France At the other end of the.
spectrum Greece is on one of the lowest report cards at double C But. last week America s report dropped from AAA to AA, NATHAN Yeah okay it still sounds pretty good for the American. economy but it s not After coming so close to defaulting some. people don t trust the good old US of A to always be able to pay what. they owe Meaning it may cost America more to borrow in the future. And that s shaken the confidence of markets all over the world. Australia Europe and other markets have all suffered huge losses. with the news And some countries are starting to wonder if they. should still look up to America economically like they always have. So America will be wanting to get back to the top of the class as soon. as possible, Presenter OK let s see what else is making the news Here s Kirsty. with the Wire, You might remember the tsunami in Japan earlier this year that lead. to a leak at a nuclear power plant Well tests on kids living near it. have found radioactive substances in them The fear is that it could. lead to things like cancer While lots of families have moved away. from the power plant many can t afford to And so the kids here have. been told to spend less time playing outside And the school principal. has to carry out regular radiation checks in the school yard. New Zealanders are shivering through what s been described as a. once in a lifetime storm A polar blast has brought freezing. temperatures and heavy snowfall to most of the country People have. been told to avoid driving and to get prepared because the weather. could last for a few days,Reporter Natasha Thiele, INTRO When was the last time you had a banana For some of you. it might have been quite a while Lots of kids aren t packing them in. their lunch boxes anymore because they ve become really expensive. lately So are they going to get any cheaper any time soon Tash. takes a look, NATASHA THIELE REPORTER Bananas are bling If you ve been.
getting them in your packed lunch box recently then you must be. pretty cashed up because bananas have become so expensive that. they ve become a bit of a luxury, So what s happened to turn bananas into lunch box bling For the. answer we have to go back to the start of the year. Queensland was hit by a cyclone and massive floods Lots of people. lost their homes and many crops were damaged Farmers were left. with fields that looked like this Millions of banana plants were easily. destroyed While they might look like big strong trees banana plants. are actually really fragile In the end three quarters of Australia s. banana crops were wiped out It devastated the industry because for. every 10 bananas sold in Australia 9 are grown in Queensland So. after one big weather event Australia s best selling fruit bananas were. off the menu for many kids, But it didn t mean that supermarket shelves were completely empty of. bananas because places like New South Wales and Western Australia. grow them too But nowhere near enough to meet the demand and so. with fewer bananas to go around prices went sky high from just a. couple of dollars a kilo to around 15, You might be thinking well why didn t we just import more bananas.
