Don't go away now, Tom. You are the newest news reviewer off last year, but you get to go first in sharing your highlights. My favorite story this year in New Tribute was the Thai boys who got trapped in a cave on were rescued. This was a positive, uplifting and euphoric story that happened in June. Another euphoric story that happened in June was the World Cup on Dan and Neil actually did a piece on this on you for it. So let's take a look at that now. Our first headline comes from a well and says euphoria as UK divers lead discovery of Thai cave group, but rescue not over. So euphoria, meaning? Feeling off great happiness. That's right. So euphoria isn't down. And as you just said, it means great happiness or confidence. Now, something really interesting about it is it's spelling to set that old spelling to sound trick that we have in English. So it's spelled u P h o R I A. So it sounds like it looks like it should be pronounced You pour era, but it's not. It's euphoria. So you together makes you like you with the big in exactly. And then four year pH like f like in phone. So euphoria. So we talk about feelings of euphoria, states of euphoria or waves of euphoria. Yeah, and we're not just talking everyday happiness are we were talking about a great the explosion off the greatest happiness. That's right. Did you watch game last night? I watched the game last night, and, uh, there were waves of euphoria. First of all, when Japan looked like they were going to win the game, and then when Belgium came back and they scored in the last minute. Yep. Well, that's what they're Fans of Belgium were experiencing euphoria. That's right, they went bananas and they were so euphoric. And that is the objective. Um, the opposite. The Japanese fans, well devastated in console herbal. Distraught. I mean, yeah, heartbroken. Really? Yeah, we're talking very, very strong and yet very, very strong. Well, who wouldn't feel euphoric after hearing that story? And now, Catherine, it's your turn to tell us your highlight of Well, I love a royal story and I love stories about weddings and babies Arm. We had all three in 2018 The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate welcome. The arrival of their third child, Louis, on the Internet was in meltdown about this story as we're way and we explained to melt down like this. Our final headline comes from Yahoo and says It's a boy. Internet goes into meltdown at the arrival off the royal baby goes into meltdown goes out of control. Exactly. Now many people out there will be familiar with the concept of meltdown in the context of a nuclear reactor. So when the fuel inside a nuclear reactor becomes too hot, it cannot be controlled anymore, and this is an extremely dangerous situation. Now, this concept of losing control is central to understanding this word. So if an organization or a business or a system goes into meltdown, we're talking about a complete loss of control, a total failure off that system. And again person can go into meltdown, for example. Well, I mean, our resident biscuit thief might get upset about this. But again, when I accused him here feeling biscuits, he went into meltdown. He went into meltdown. It was the fifth day in a row. So we're talking about an extreme and uncontrollable emotional reaction, usually to do with being very, very upset. Yeah. Now, having said that, the I had a look at the Internet yesterday, it was functioning completely fine. So what do you mean that it went out of control? Do you just mean that it was very popular? Exactly. So going the Internet going into meltdown is akin to something going viral that many, many people are extremely interested in the story. There's a lot of popularity, and I suppose in a way nobody can know what anybody else is going to do. There's a kind of a lack of control to be able to predict the future, but yes, basically, it's an extremely popular story, and we also hear this expression, this word meltdown in the in the set phrase toe have a meltdown. Yes, that person can have a meltdown. Teoh. Well, I tell you what, I'm going into meltdown with excitement about this treaty at the end of the program. What could it be before all of that? Dan, what was your? Well, every year we hear more and more about the environmental damage that's caused by humans. And one thing that we've been talking about a lot this year, I feel, is plastic. And while they're quite negative stories, I quite like this story because I'm a very optimistic kind of guy. And it was about a possible solution to plastic pollution when we discussed the term usher in So allow me toe usher in the clip for you. So ITV news. The headline is new plastic eating protein could usher in recycling revolution ushered in cause and activity or process to start. Yes, Is this anything to do with the artist? Usher the singer? Nothing whatsoever. As far as I'm aware, it's just a think of coincidence that he's got the same name unless he had it has a job in a cinema showing people where they're supposed to sit. So if you go to the cinema or the theatre, it's really dark. There's often a person there with a torch flashlight who will show you where your seat is. So the idea of showing a direction all kind of helping something toe happen in a particular way We have. We also use Usher is a job at a wedding. The person that shows people where they're going to sit is called an usher, and it's strongly connected with periods of time isn't or sort of things that have a profound change, right? So this idea of change in movement or in showing direction and things that are going to happen if I am if you if something ushers something in it marks a period of great change is the start of a big change. So we could we could say that the invention of the World Wide Web ushered in the digital revolution. This thing was the first thing that happened the World Wide Web, and now everything is different. So what they're saying about this head? The headline is saying that this new plastic eating protein could usher in could signal the start off the recycling revolution. This one thing happens after that. Everything is going to be different. Wonderful. Thank you for clearing that up. Well, in a lovely way, it's being to usher in the New Year on. There's any one thing left to do, of course. Raise your biscuits way. Oh, Happy New Year, everyone okay? Just one way.
