On Wednesday January 6, 2016, North Korea announced a successful hydrogen bomb test. This test was performed at Sungjibaegam and occurred on Tuesday at 8:30 P.M. The test also appeared to cause an earthquake with a magnitude of 5.1 that was east-southeast from the test site. This is concerning news because of the hostile relations between the United States and North Korea. On a North Korean television channel, a news anchor stated that “there can neither be suspension of nuclear development, nor nuclear dismantlement, unless the U.S. rolls back its vicious and hostile policy towards North Korea.” So the United Nations Security Council held a closed door meeting discussing potential ways to address this issue.

BSGE Night Out at Citi Field

A Mets Fundraiser will be taking place on May 15, at 7 P.M. Each ticket will be $20, and $10 from each ticket will be donated to the school. This money will go to after school activities and clubs. Mr. Lakhaney was one of the staff members who helped plan the event. Below is an interview with him about the event.

Are you a Mets fan and who is your favorite baseball player?

“Yes I am a Mets fan and I don’t have a favorite player, but my favorite players from past Mets teams were Dwight Gooden and Edgardo Alfonzo.”

What is the Mets Fundraiser? What does it raise money for? How would a student be able to buy these tickets?

“We are going to sell tickets to people who want them. For each ticket we sell, the school will get $10. We already received a block of tickets and the money received will go to school clubs. You will be able to order tickets from Ms. Margaret and you must buy the tickets before April 27.”
