Write to Russ

Hi Russ, I was wondering if you could make more articles on the war in Ukraine. I would really like to know what else is happening to Ukriane and how we can help. I was also wondering if you could make an article on climate change, pollution, plastic pollution, endangered species, and deforestation. Thanks!
Maddie
Thanks for telling us what articles you think we should write, Maddie. Those are all such important topics. We are working on an important Ukraine story this month. There will be more articles about all those other issues as well.

Dear Russ, How many language can you speak? I can speak Japanese, English, and Chinese!
Keisuke
That is so cool that you can speak THREE languages, Keisuke! I am very jealous. I can only speak one language: English. πŸ˜• Maybe I can learn Japanese and Chinese too one day!

Hello Russ! It's sad to know that monarch butterflies are endangered. I remember going to this place called β€œPacific Grove Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary” in Monterey, CA. There would be trees full of hundreds of monarchs. Usually the most amounts of monarchs would be seen around October through February! And if you look up the name of the sanctuary and look at photos online you can see how many butterflies you usually see around those months. Hope you have a wonderful day! πŸ¦‹πŸŒ³

It is sad that monarch butterflies are endangered, but there is still hope to save the species. We can take the actions listed from the article, such as protecting milkweed. Thank you for sharing your memory from the Pacific Grove Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary. Sounds like a wonderful and beautiful place! I hope I can visit the site someday. Take care! πŸ¦‹
Russell Kahn
Have you seen monarch butterflies? Thank you!
Hello!
Yes! I see monarch butterflies all the time. I also planted milkweed near my home, so the monarchs come and lay their eggs on the plants. It's wonderful to see the amazing insects!

I loved the space images too, Michael! People (like me) have waited for years to see photos from the JWST. And they were better than I could even imagine! Thanks for sharing the idea to do a moth article. What do you love most about moths?

Hi Russ! I just read the giant water lily article and I loved it! It's crazy how a human can fit on it! I started looking at other big plants and I found a really big flower called the Titan Arum! I don't know if you have heard of it before but maybe you can consider making an article on it! Thank you for reading my question! I love News-O-Matic! Keep up the great work!!!πŸ™‚πŸ˜πŸ€©πŸ˜‹πŸ₯³πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜€πŸŒΉπŸŒ·
Caroline
I'm so glad you enjoyed that story, Caroline! I also liked the story about the largest water lily. We have done a few stories about the titan arum. Search for an article in 2018 called "The Stinkiest Flower!" You can see a picture of me (and my kids) by the giant plant! (It was pretty stinky!)
