Show 357 Wednesday 25 April

Watch today’s show at YouTube or BlipTV.

Hi, I’m Sarah. Welcome to The Daily English Show.
Today I’m going to try an experiment.
I’m going to ask you to vote for me at Podcast Alley. And I’m going to see how many people actually do.
You don’t get any benefit from this – and you might waste 10 seconds of your time. But if you are an English student I think this could be good practice for following instructions.
Podcast Alley is just a website that ranks podcasts.
I don’t think it really means anything if The Daily English Show is high up the ranks or not ... but it does seem like quite a popular site – so it might help some people find out about the show.
Anyway, I just want to see what happens. I think if about 50 people vote for The Daily English Show then it could be the number one video podcast in April.

First, click on the link in the video description of this video.
Click after it says “click here to vote”.
And that will take you to The Daily English Show page on Podcast Alley.
On that page under where it says The Daily English Show there is a box.
The title of the box is actions.
Inside that box, click on vote.
Then a window will pop up.
Inside that window there are three boxes.
Two of them are optional, so you don’t need to fill them in.
You only need to fill in the first one. Write your email address in that first box.
Then click on Vote Now!
Then go and check your email.
And you will find an email from Podcast Alley.
The subject will be Podcast Alley Voting.
Open the email and click on the link.
And that’s it!


Kia ora in Stick News today 4 high school students in New Zealand have been expelled from school after they attacked a 16-year-old boy then posted a video of the assault on YouTube.

In New Zealand if school students misbehave they can get suspended.
This means they are not allowed to go to school for a period of time.
If the offence is more serious, the student can get expelled.
This means that the student is forbidden from attending the school in future.
On the 30th of March a 14-year-old boy and a 16-year-old boy lured another teenage boy to a park and attacked him.
The New Zealand herald reported up to 30 teenagers watched the assault and spurred on the violence.
It was filmed and uploaded to YouTube.
The video has now been removed and 4 teenagers involved in the attack have been expelled from school.

And that was Stick News for Wednesday the 25th of April.
Kia Ora.
