Summary Obama Oil BtN looks at what's being done to fix the environmental disaster caused by the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The situation has turned into a serious political issue. US President Barack Obama has been criticised for not showing his anger at the oil company BP. (Sarah) Soccer Horns There have been calls to ban vuvuzela trumpets from matches in the soccer World Cup. They are so noisy that many supporters are having to wear earplugs and some players are having trouble hearing the referee's whistle. But World Cup bosses say they won't ban them because they're part of the South African football culture. (Nathan) Asian Languages BtN looks at a new study which suggests that fewer students are choosing to study Asian languages at school. The figures show that Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Indonesian are increasingly being dropped by year 12 students. So, why are they less popular, and why is the Australian government so worried about the decline? (Kirsty) Feral Goats Australian wildlife officials have come up with a new way to get rid of feral goats. Feral goats can be a problem because they chomp through native vegetation, which in turn can threaten the survival of some species of endangered birds. As BtN will explain the new method involves strapping tracking devices to special 'spy' goats! (Sarah) Roller Derby Get your skates on! If you've ever fancied roller skating then you might be interested in a sport called roller derby. It's a tough contact sport which has been around for decades, and is now making a big comeback. Some skaters are even pushing for the competition to be rolled out across Australia. (Kirsty).
