Kia Ora. In Stick News today, forty minutes after receiving her crown, the new Miss Universe collapsed on stage.

Miss Universe is a beauty pageant. Women walk on a stage in various outfits and are judged on their beauty.
This year Miss Pueto Rico won the competition. She was congratulated and given a crown.
Then she had to talk to the media. Suddenly she collapsed and was taken off stage.
Within a minute, organizers said she was OK. She had just fainted.
The organizers said Miss Universe had had plenty to eat that day. They said she was wearing a tight dress and it was very hot on stage.

And that was Stick News for Tuesday the 25th of July.
Kia Ora.

# 74 Is that normal?

Kumiko explains more about the Yamamoto story to Sarah.
Step 1: Repeat Kumiko's lines.
Step 2: Read Kumiko's lines on the screen and talk to Sarah.

Sarah  Do you think he’s really crying? Or just acting? It looks a bit fake to me.

Kumiko I don’t think it’s fake.

Sarah  But it’s kind of strange...

Kumiko Yeah. But I think Kato always talks in a strange way... so for him, this is normal.

Sarah  Oh, OK. And I’ve never seen anyone cry that much when they apologize on TV before. Is that normal?

Kumiko No, it’s not normal.

Sarah  Normally they just bow deeply and look really sad don’t they?

Kumiko Yeah. And sometimes they cry a bit...

Sarah  But not sobbing like Kato...

Kumiko Yeah. It’s kind of funny.
