First up, the Dakota Pipeline
‘Criminals you guys are criminals, go get your money somewhere
else!....Yeah you!’
The Dakota Pipeline is an oil pipeline that will run underground from
North Dakota to Illinois in America. The construction of the
controversial pipeline is about to start again. The project had
stopped for months, because of opposition from Native American
protestors and their supporters. They say that the pipeline would
destroy ancient holy sites and pollute their drinking water. Native
Americans have said that the government approved pipeline
construction without telling them. But US Law requires that the
Government agree this with the Native Americans. While President
Donald Trump doesn’t have the power to approve construction, he
supports the oil companies.

Chris explains why iPhones are so popular. Let´s hear him again.

Fans waiting for the newest iPhones has become the norm. Jess is
one of them. I asked her if she automatically upgrades her iPhone
every time a new one is released.
The contract I have means I can upgrade my phone every few months
with no extra cost.
It is estimated that 50 million tonnes of electronic waste will be
produced this year. Electronic waste is an issue because it often
contains harmful chemicals. So, is it really ethical to buy a new phone

Jess: What is the point in upgrading a device when it’s causing that
much harm to the world we live in.
Layla: But yet you do have the latest iPhone 7

Jess:Well now that I’m more aware of the effects that it has on the
environment, to be honest, I won’t be so keen on upgrading my phone

And finally, uniting young and old
Programmes in the US and the UK are uniting young and old people.
The organisation Charity Intergin allows old people to volunteer at
their local primary and secondary schools. The aim of this is to teach
young people some old knowledge and to combat the problem of
loneliness among older people.
And that’s all from today’s programme. As usual, you can find the quiz
and questions, on the Newsreel pages of – and don’t forget
our Facebook page – it’s UR Engelska. Until next time, I’m Layla May,
thanks for listening.
