When the Cubs won the World Series last week, they made history.
Some people say it was one of the most exciting baseball games ever played.
The Chicago Cubs, hadn’t won the World Series in 108 years. That’s one of the longest “droughts” in sports history.
Americans go to the polls on November 8.
Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will (unless something very unlikely happens) become President of the United States. That is, arguably, the most powerful job in the world. No political party is more “right or wrong” than another–they are simply groups of people who hold specific beliefs and even then, not everyone who belongs to that party will agree with everything their party supports.)
It was a great way to start.
Auston Matthews, 19, made history on Oct. 12 by scoring four goals in his first game in the National Hockey League.

Hurricane Matthew has been downgraded to a Category 1 Hurricane, according to The Weather Channel’s website.

Recently, the two nominees for President of the United States took part in a debate.

Recently, people across Canada came together in a unique and emotional musical experience.
Canadians said thank-you and good-bye to the iconic rock band, The Tragically Hip.
Many Canadians have enjoyed the unique Canadian sound of the band for many years. In fact, some people say the band plays “the soundtrack of Canada” and the “music that is in Canadians’ hearts.” Of course, not every Canadian enjoys the music of The Hip, as they’re known, but a great many do.
The people in the UK have voted to leave the European Union (the EU).
The European Union is a group of 28 countries in Europe that have agreed to co-operate—to all become one group, in many ways. For instance, people in European Union countries can travel, live and work easily in any other EU country. And businesses that are in the European Union can send products back and forth more easily. Nineteen of the EU countries all use the same money–the Euro.
On Thursday, June 23 there was a very important vote.
