Honor goes to Colombia President

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided to award the Nobel Peace Prize for 2016 to Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end – a war that has cost the lives of at least 220,000 Colombians and displaced close to six million people.

The winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize is Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. He’s being recognized for his efforts to end decades of civil war. In 2012, Santos initiated talks with the country’s biggest insurgent group, FARC. The negotiations culminated in a peace accord in September this year. The Nobel Committee noted that Santos ensured all voters could have their say on the accord by putting it to a referendum. A narrow majority of voters opposed it.

Many insist the guerillas should be held to account for their crimes. Victims of the group include a Japanese businessman held hostage for almost three years before being murdered. Santos is vowing to keep working for peace. The committee says it hopes the prize will give him the strength to do that. Soon after the announcement, the Colombian government and rebel forces said they agreed to restart talks toward reviewing their peace agreement.

Large drop in number of elementary students who can use a match

According to a survey on children’s life experiences, the number of children who can use a match has fallen in the past twenty years. In addition, the number of children who can “peel an apple with a knife” and “use a can opener” has also decreased. According to the study, around 70 percent of parents said they “had never asked the child to do” these tasks. マッチ、調査、他に、皮をむく、減少、研究、課題
