High Wire Artist Freddy Nock’s 7 Days Challenge – Photos

High wire artist Freddy Nock from Switzerland is trying to to set a new world record by doing seven summits in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in seven days.

His “7 records within 7 days” is part of a UNESCO charity event.

I think that what he is doing is very dangerous.

Can he do it?

The 2,917 metres (9,570 feet) long balance with a constant ascent between 41.2 percent and 52.5 percent is part of Nock's "7 records within 7 days" attempt and part of a UNESCO charity event.

UNESCO,Please Save A Heritage Historical Building

Please help me to get this message to UNESCO or United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation.

I hope that UNESCO and everybody who can help me, please  save a historical building in Jalan Bandar, Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia because the government of Terengganu is going to demolish the beautiful, historical building very soon.

The government must not demolish the building because:

  1. The heritage building is more than 100 years old. It is older than my grandmother and my great grandfather.

  2. Kids cannot see the historical building if it is not there anymore. Kids should see historical buildings because they can learn history.

  3. The building is still strong and beautiful. The quality of the building is very good because it can stand for more than 1oo years.

  4. If we demolish the historical building, the historical building is gone.

  5. We waste bricks and money when we demolish the beautiful and strong building.

  6. There will be rubbish everywhere and the drain can be blocked by rubbish. It will cause a flood. A flood is a disaster.

  7. Demolishing a building also cause air pollution.

My grandmother’s bookshop , Alam Akademik is in the building.

Alam Akademik is more than 100 years old.

I love the bookshop because it is so beautiful and there are lots of books.

I think the government should build new buildings on empty lands and take care of the historical building.

We can paint the building to make it more beautiful and shinny.

Please save this historical building.
