Australia – A news guy tries to crack a joke during a live interview with the Dalai Lama and it's painful. The joke went, "The Dalai Lama walks into the pizza shop and says can you make me one of everything?" The Dalai Lama was very confused and asked the man, "What’s that sorry?" He probably still doesn’t get the joke.

Chile – A volcano that's been erupting since the beginning of June is showing no signs of letting up. The thick clouds of ash continue to disrupt air travel from Argentina to Australia.

Austria – Two mountain peaks in the Alps are no longer for sale. This comes after a public outcry. The government had big plans to make a lot of cash. The mountains are where hundreds of locals died during World War I.

United States – A dog has learned to ride a scooter. Norman’s owner says it took a lot of training before he mastered the trick. Now Norman who's family lives in Georgia has cruised his way into superstardom.
