You've probably noticed that there haven't been a whole lot of casting calls for people living outside of North America. Well, all you British readers are in luck because the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) has a whole bunch of shows that are looking for lots of different people. So no matter what your interests may be, there's a good chance the BBC has a show just for someone like you!
Casting Call - Dumb and Dumber
Of course, one of the most popular types of reality shows are those that feature ordinary people doing stupid things (along the lines of Fear Factor, for instance). Dick & Dom in Da Bungalow is one of the more popular Saturday morning shows in Britain, and the program is gearing up for a new season. They're basically looking for anybody that can do a stupid human trick, so if you've always been proud of your ability to sing Complicated backwards, step right up for your 15 minutes of fame!
Casting Call - Sing Your Heart Out
If you're a fan of American Idol but don't quite have the vocal cords to be the next Clay or Ruben, you might want to give a new show called Can't Sing Singers a try. They're looking for contestants from Liverpool, London, Birmingham and Cardiff that make William Hung sound like Christina Aguilera, so don't worry about it if all the neighborhood dogs come around whenever you start singing. Auditions start August 2004, and there'll be a live television broadcast of the finalists this December.
Casting Call - Let's Get Tough
Do you think you're tough? What about your family? If you answered yes to both, then you're probably an ideal candidate for Britain's Toughest Family. The show is looking for families that are willing to try different activities, from sky diving to swimming in ice-cold water. If one of your parents is afraid of spiders, this is definitely not the show for you! But if your idea of fun is spending an afternoon bungee jumping with your fam, then Britain's Toughest Family would love to hear from you.
If any of these shows sound interesting to you, head on over to the official BBC site, www.bbc.co.uk, for more information (you'll also find lots of other programs that are looking for people there, too)!

Report them to the principal.
Tell them how you feel.
If it gets worse contact the police ( I've had to do this )
When your friend starts to talk about you, and stabs you in the back. then maybe it's time to move on. In friendships, there will always be times when your friend hurt your feelings, but if it's being repeated, then maybe it's time to let go. Because some things aren't worth it.
You should if you really want to, but I don't think it should matter the amount of knowledge you and your friends have, because friendship is merely friendship! :) Plus, when you tell them, it may come across as bragging and they would perceive you as a show-off. Hope this helps!
Congratulations on being gifted and getting all the opportunties what your getting :)
You knows your friends better than any of us and how does you think they will react if you tell them? Thinks about if one of your friends told you and how you would feel.
Be proud and enjoy your learning and you will meet other gifted people too in your classes and ask them their experiences too of how/if they told friends.
If it was me then I probably wouldnt but thats just me personality. I wouldnt ever get in the gifted group anyway so I doesnt really have to think about this :)
