Description

We've now hit the middle of spring, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the flowers are blooming!

But it's the time of the year where plants, particularly grasses, start releasing pollen into the air and up our noses.

Last year's hayfever season wasn't too bad, but this year is different.

In Victoria, heaps more grass grew compared to last year which means we're going to get heaps more pollen and scientists are worried this may lead to something called thunderstorm asthma.

When pollen starts to get wet, it can burst into tiny little pieces. These pieces are then spread around during a storm and can find their way into our lungs causing asthma attacks

Back in 2016, Victoria had a deadly thunderstorm asthma so they say people should be prepared this year.

They want everyone, not just asthma sufferers, to pay attention to daily pollen warnings, and, if things are expected to get really bad, it might be best to just stay inside.

FANCY DOING A DEGREE IN E-SPORTS?

If you love video games and don't know what you want to do at uni, I've got an idea for you!

Some universities in the UK and United States are now offering e-sports degrees!

That's what these students are doing but it's not quite what you think!

There is absolutely no game play as part of the course.

Well, that's not as fun.

The uni says e-sports is a massive industry worth more than a billion dollars so this course teaches people the business side of things, stuff like management and marketing, like what the director of a sports team would do!
