Important: never mention the time in any of these cases.
The key word for breaking news is just, but it is not always used. The news can be personal, or official, like on a news channel. Check out these examples:
- The president has increased taxes again.
- I have just sent the email.
- We have bought a new car.
- The United Nations has called it a “worldwide crisis.”
Check out these examples of actions or situations that started in the past, but whose results can be seen in the present, or are still important:
- Oh, you have shaved off your beard!
- Wow, you have really upped your game!
- Congratulations, I see you have remodeled your house completely!
