THE WIZARDING WORLD'S #1 NEWS OUTLET OF CHOICE
By: Rita Skeeter
There are celebrities – and then there are celebrities. We’ve seen many a famous face from the wizarding world grace the stands here in the Patagonian Desert – Ministers and Presidents, Celestina Warbeck, controversial American wizarding band The Bent-Winged Snitches – all have caused flurries of excitement, with crowd members scrambling for autographs and even casting Bridging Charms to reach the VIP boxes over the heads of the crowd.
But when word swept the campsite and stadium that a certain gang of infamous wizards (no longer the fresh-faced teenagers they were in their heyday, but nevertheless recognizable) had arrived for the final, excitement was beyond anything yet seen. As the crowd stampeded, tents

As the uneasy fog drifted across London early this morning, news toiled in regarding the deaths of six more Witches and Wizards in Knockturn Alley.
The scene was evocative of the same black magic used days before Halloween late last year. Similar to the attack on October 26th, all victims were found with the same distinct dark mark branded into their skulls and their bodies nearly unidentifiable. (According to a source at St. Mungo’s, they have been working diligently to identify the bodies and will notify the families shortly.)
While there was a brief hiatus in the number of Dark Magic related arrests directly following the....
Delightful chaos: that’s how Minister Hermione Granger describes the responsibilities of the Ministry’s department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes.

Much as we adapted the wireless from muggle radio services, vape stalls have been appearing in Diagon Alley, and even Hogsmeade. There are a variety of companies, each with their own claim to fame, though Vexing Vapors seems to be dominating the market.

Though the long-term risks of vaping are unknown, many witches and wizards have turned to them as a slightly-healthier form of smoking.
