    @Zom LOL you called your mom! Great! That's so nice of you! I'd love to trip with my mom. Mother's day was May 7th in Canada. ;)

    Thanks @Scott , your record is great!
    I guess I am too anxious (Am I @Zom? :D) and maybe I'm reading too fast.

    True @rupsil, so far you're among a worrier to me.

    Your speed of reading is alright to my ear. It might be a bit challenging to some people, but it's the beauty of having several newsreadersdoing it regularly; in the end it becomes easier to understand different accents and speaking styles. :D

    Hello DJ @aladdin,

    There are 4 newsreaders for News Round Up #191, they are @rupsil, @torellip, @Elle, and @Scott.

    This means 2 Korean voices, one male and one female with Scott and Elle; a Brazilian one with Rupsil and an Italian one with Torellip.

    @Bubbly and her Pakistani voice might arrive later. ^-^

    Good job guys. :D
