Show 85 Monday 26 June

Watch today's show at YouTube or grouper.


Kia Ora. In Stick News today, the world’s second-richest man has decided to give away some of his money.

Forbes is an American business magazine. They say Microsoft chairperson Bill Gates is the richest person in the world.
Warren Buffett is ranked number 2.
Buffett made lots of money from investments.
Now he is giving 85 percent of his money away. Most of it to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.

The rest of Buffett’s money will be given to 4 other foundations. So far there is no indication that any of the money will be given to The Daily English Show.
And that was Stick News for Monday the 26th of June.
Kia Ora.
