The jury also found Mr. Jackson not guilty of holding the boy's family at his large home. Government lawyers said Mr. Jackson had a history of sexual wrongdoing with young boys.

Go behind the stage at an important theatre event.

Last year over 5,000 year 12 students in New South Wales studied drama. However, only 47 were selected to perform at the Seymour Theatre Centre in Sydney. The performances were held twice daily this week, and all were sold out. The young people have come from Dubbo, Byron Bay, Wollongong, Armidale and from schools throughout the Sydney basin.
As part of their assessment, the students must perform a solo piece, which they can either create themselves, or they can take a soliloquy from an existing play or a set monologue. Also the students have to do a group piece, where the students create a play from scratch, which is at least 12 minutes long.
The students can learn life skills from these assessments. And these are the sort of things you need in any job. This means that this assessments are good for acting and also they can acquire skills for any job, like cooperating environment, or taking responsibility the dicision which they made.

Q. 通訳の際に速記が使えない理由は?

A. 速記によって全ての言葉をメモしようとすると,時間がかかってしまうし,フォーカスしすぎてしまい,重要なてんがどこだかわからなくなってしまう。そのため,通訳のメモの際は,キーワードだけをひろって書くのが望ましい。
