NOW IT´S TIME TO FIND ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS
THESE WOMEN ARE AS DIFFERENT AS CHALK AND CHEESE. CAN YOU IMAGINE THEM SINGING THE SAME SONG?
LISTEN TO THIS SONG AND READ THE LYRICS. IN EACH LINE OF THE 3 VERSES THERE IS AN EXTRA WORD. FIND THE WORD AND CROSS IT OUT.
It´s my party and I´ll cry if I want to
cry if Iwant to, cry if I want to,
you would cry too if it happened to you
Nobody really knows where my Johny has gone
but Judy left at the same time.
Why was he still holding her hand
when he´s supposed to be all mine?
Play all of my records, keep dancing all night,
But just leave me alone for a while
´Til Johny´s back dancing with me
I´ve got no more reason to smile.
Judy and Johny just walked in through the door,
like a queen walking with her king.
Oh, what a birthday party surprise,
Judy´s wearing his ear-ring!!

FROM #METOO TO TRIAL
Jury deliberations have begun in Harvey Weinstein’s rape trial in New York. Weinstein, 67, is charged with first-degree criminal sexual act, two counts of rape and two counts of predatory sexual assault. The charges are based on Miriam Haley’s testimony that Weinstein forced oral sex on her in 2006 and Jessica Mann’s testimony that he raped her in 2013 during what she described as an abusive relationship.

Harvey Weinstein has been found guilty of sexual assault, capping a stunning downfall for the former Hollywood star and a victory for the #MeToo movement against harassment.
Weinstein, 67, was convicted in New York City of third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sexual act.
But he was cleared of the most serious count of predatory sexual assault. He faces up to 25 years in prison.
