  1. It is also 19 degrees C why was not that on the label only the larger number to bad Matzav is also playing a game give the entire truth. It is summer in the southern half of the world and very light for the sun is out, but when it turns winter again it will be dark and very cold again. Report or don’t report it but tell the entire story not half story.
