T

he ABC is axing its longrunning late night news program Lateline and cutting Stan Grant’s The Link in favour of two new current affairs shows. Lateline, which has been running since 1990, will make way for a prime-time news discussion show presented by Grant at 9pm on the ABC News channel and a half-hour late edition national news bulletin at 10.30pm on the

AGL SELLING GAS TO Victorian workers EXPORTER, SAYS REPORT

E

nergy company AGL, which is not a gas exporter, has reportedly been selling a large amount of gas that has been making its way onto the LNG export market. The company has an agreement to supply Queensland’s Gladstone Liquefied Natural Gas with 254 petajoules of gas over a period of 11 years, the Daily Telegraph reports. Gladstone sells the gas offshore. AGL says the deal was inked before the closure of the Hazelwood power plant, leading to a potential gas shortage on the east coast and the prospect of soaring energy prices. There is also an outcry over the cost of gas mined in Australia being sold to local companies at a significantly higher price than that paid by companies in foreign markets.

8000 kids killed or injured in conflicts

M

ore than 8000 children were killed or injured in armed conflicts throughout the world in the last year, according to a UN report. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres described the number as “unacceptable”. In Afghanistan, 3512 children were killed or maimed - an increase of nearly one quarter compared to the previous year. In Yemen the number was 1340 and in Syria it was 1299. Hundreds of children were also recruited as soldiers, subjected to sexual violence, or targeted in attacks on schools, the report found. The report published on Thursday listed as responsible organisations based in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Mali, Myanmar, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria and Yemen. The Saudi-led coalition, which is currently supporting the Yemeni government in its conflict against the Houthi rebels, also appeared on the black list for the first time. Last year, former UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon removed Saudi Arabia from the list after pressure from the Saudi government. Guterres did “the right thing” by placing the coalition on the list this year, Human Rights Watch said.

US RAPPER NELLY DENIES NEED IT MOVED ? RAPE ACCUSATION No Job Too Small

L

os Angeles US rapper Nelly says he’s innocent after he was arrested over allegations he raped a woman on his tour bus hours after a concert. “I am completely innocent,” the rapper wrote on Twitter late on Saturday.

“I am confident that once the facts are looked at, it will be very clear that I am the victim of a false allegation.” “I will pursue every legal option to address this defaming claim,” he added. The rapper was taken into custody on a second degree rape charge in the early hours of Saturday by police in Auburn, in the northwestern state of Washington, after a woman called 911 to report that Nelly had raped her on the bus, which was parked in a Walmart carpark. He was later released from custody and police said they were continuing to investigate. Nelly, whose hits include Hot in Herre and Dilemma, is currently on tour with country duo Florida Georgia Line and had performed in Auburn on Friday night. He was due to perform again on Saturday night in the Washington city of Ridgefield.

serial fraudster has been jailed in Victoria for another three years after he used falsified documents to obtain a $680,000 home loan and receive $400,000 in fraudulent tax returns. David Lopez, 39, was on Thursday jailed for seven years, with a minimum period of three-and-a-half-years,

after earlier pleading guilty to multiple fraud and proceeds of crime charges. Lopez was in prison for similar offences when he defrauded the Australian Tax Office of more than $400,000 in GST refunds using 10 business listings he had set up using fake names, Victorian County Court judge Duncan Allen said.

TEENS GIVEN BOOZE LANDMARK FINE FOR DODGY NSW BY PARENTS HORMONE CLINIC landmark $127,500 fine

A

has been handed down to a NSW corporation that ran a dodgy hormone clinic claiming treatments could increase strength and sexual prowess. Wellness Enterprises Pty Ltd trading as Australian Male Hormone Clinic was slapped with the fine at the Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney on Tuesday for “unlawful advertising”. Claims that treatments for testosterone deficiency would increase “energy, focus, masculinity and ability to satisfy sexual partners” were published in newspapers from February to August but were challenged by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. “Advertising can heavily influence a patient’s decisionmaking around their healthcare needs and information in advertising must be accurate and based on acceptable evidence,” AHPRA chief executive Martin Fletcher said in a statement.

BINGE DRINK

U

nderage teens given just sips of booze by their parents are more likely to binge drink in the future, new research has shown. Six years of data found 17-yearolds given alcohol by their parents when they were younger, even small amounts, were more likely to binge drink and show alcohol dependence, a study by the University of New South Wales shows. Parents who believed they were helping teens by supplying alcohol or supervising drinking were putting them at risk of becoming binge drinkers, UNSW Professor Richard Mattick said on Tuesday. “At around 17 years of age children who received alcohol from their parents were more likely to be binge drinking, experience alcohol-related harms and show symptoms of dependence,” he said.

survival of the Great Barrier Reef, and Adani’s record in environmental management in India “leaves a lot to be desired”. “And if it leaves a lot to be desired domestically, there’s no reason for me to believe that Adani would be a responsible environmental player globally,” he’s told the broadcaster’s Four Corners program. Mr Ramesh said the federal and Queensland governments had not properly looked at the Adani Group’s environmental and financial conduct in India before approving the mine in the Galilee Basin. “I’m very, very surprised that the Australian Government, for whatever reason, has seen

it fit to all along hand-hold Mr Adani; he is not one of the shining stars of environmental stewardship,” he said. That Australia would consider giving concessional loans and other financial breaks to Adani was almost beyond belief given the consequences for climate change, he said. “You’re giving a tax break to a project that is actually going to have adverse environmental consequences, which will have multiplying effects on weather patterns in the region, across the world. I find it bizarre,” he said. “The Great Barrier Reef happens to be in Australia, but it’s a common heritage of mankind, it belongs to the

world.” In responding to the accusations, a spokesman for federal Environment and Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg said Adani’s new mine would create thousands of jobs. “State and federal governments have put in place more than 300 strict conditions on the Adani mine,” he said. “The consideration of Adani’s environmental history was the most comprehensive ever undertaken under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999.” AAP has sought comment from Adani and the Queensland government.

IDOL WINNER ‘SORRY’ AT VICTORIAN COURT

Biggest-ever meth A precursor bust: Keenan

A

uthorities have seized the biggest haul of methamphetamine precursor chemicals in Australian history with a potential street value of $3.6 billion. Two consignments from Thailand - 3.9 tonnes of liquid ephedrine concealed in green tea bottles and 350 kilograms of methamphetamines hidden inside buckets of plaster were allegedly intercepted in the past three weeks. Three people have been arrested for trying to import the drugs into Sydney. Federal Justice Minister Michael Keenan says a combined effort by

Australian Federal Police, Australian Border Force and Thai authorities resulted in the illicit drugs being kept off the streets. Mr Keenan on Friday said the 3.9 tonnes of liquid ephedrine would have produced about 3.6 tonnes of methamphetamine with a street value of $3.6 billion. So far this year authorities have intercepted more than seven tonnes of illicit narcotics in total headed for Australia. “Today’s results are an example of what can be achieved through national and international partnerships,” Mr Keenan said in a statement.

ustralian Idol winner Kate DeAraugo has declared she is sorry after appearing in a Victorian court for allegedly possessing the drug ice and carrying a knife and tomahawk. “Of course I am sorry,” the 31-year-old told reporters outside the Bendigo Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday morning. DeAraugo, once a member of pop group the Young Divas, is charged with possessing a drug of dependence, namely ice, and drug driving at Shepparton on June 15. She is also charged with two counts of possessing a controlled weapon, being a large bladed knife and tomahawk. Police also allege DeAraugo breached her bail by not obeying an 11pm to 7am curfew, when she was found at a BP store at Kyabram, about 100 kilometres from her Bendigo home.

SARIN FOUND IN

SYRIA’S MARCH ATTACK

S

amples from an attack by Syrian forces in March on an opposition-held town has tested positive for the banned nerve agent sarin in an examination by the global chemical weapons watchdog, sources told Reuters. The March 30 air strike in the town of Latamneh, in the northern Syrian Hama area, injured around 70 people who suffered nausea, foaming at the mouth and muscle spasms. “Samples analysis results show clear presence of sarin,” a source told Reuters of the findings by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW). Military officials have repeatedly denied that forces under Syrian President Bashar al-Assad have used chemical weapons during the country’s civil war. UN war crimes investigators however said in a report last month that Syrian forces had used chemical weapons more than two dozen times, including in a sarin attack on the town of Khan Sheikhoun in April that killed more than 80 people. A Joint UN-OPCW investigation found that government forces used chlorine barrel bombs at least three times, while Islamic State militants had used sulphur mustard gas. The latest finding by the OPCW is expected to be included in a report by its Fact Finding Mission for Syria, due to be finalised in coming weeks.

Hugh Hefner: oppressor or liberator? << cont. from cover...

with a staple in their navels, as simple subjugation of females, no matter how slick and smooth the packaging. On the other were those who felt the Playboy founder was actually at the forefront of the sexual revolution, bringing sexuality into the mainstream and advancing the cause of feminism with his stand on social issues, especially abortion rights. “I think it’s disgusting,” said feminist author Susan Brownmiller, of the praise she’d been seeing on social media since Hefner’s death on Wednesday at age 91. “Even some of my Facebook friends are hewing to the notion that, gee whiz, he supported abortion, he supported civil rights ... Yes he was for abortion, (because) if you convince your girlfriend to get an abortion because she got pregnant, you don’t have to think about marrying her! I mean, that was his point.” Most offensive to Brownmiller was what she called Hefner’s equating the word “feminist” with “anti-sex.” “It wasn’t that we were opposed to a liberation of sexual morality,” she said, “but the idea that he would make women into little bunnies, rabbits, with those ears ... That was the horror of it.” For Kathy Spillar, executive editor of Ms Magazine, the accolades were a result of something deeper: a decadeslong public relations strategy of Playboy to sanitise what she called an empire devoted to the

subjugation of women. “From the beginning, they tried to sell it as women’s liberation,” said Spillar, who also directs the Feminist Majority Foundation. “And so they made huge outreach efforts over the years to women’s rights groups.” But there was nothing liberating about it, Spillar said: “Those photographs of women certainly aren’t empowering of those women. They’re there for the pleasure of men.” “He was right about one thing,” Spillar added. “Sex sells. But it sells to men. And to put women in those horrible costumes that Gloria Steinem wrote about! Talk about sexual harassment, talk a hostile work environment.” She was referring to the famous magazine expose that a young Steinem went undercover to write, training as a Playboy bunny in a New York club - bunny suit and all. Hefner himself, obviously, saw it very differently. “The truth of the matter is the bunnies were the pre-feminist feminists,” Hefner told the Associated Press in 2011. “They were the beginning, really, of independent women. The bunnies were earning more money than, in many cases, their fathers and their husbands. That was a revolution.” To Kathryn Leigh Scott, a former bunny at the New York club, much of what Hefner said then rings true. Scott trained at the club in January 1963, at age 19, she says, with six other bunnies, one of them Steinem. She said she had fun, and made good money. She later wrote a book, The Bunny Years, to counter the view that

Steinem portrayed in her article. “I did not feel exploited,” Scott says now. “As a matter of fact, I felt that I was exploiting Playboy - because I was earning very good money in a very safe environment, certainly safer than that many of my friends were working in at the time.” Following Hefner’s death, many celebrities tweeted affectionate messages. “Thank you for being a revolutionary and changing so many people’s lives, especially mine,” wrote television personality and former Playboy model Jenny McCarthy. “We’ve lost a true explorer, a man who had a keen sense of the future,” wrote writer-producer Norman Lear. “We learned a lot from you Mr. Hefner.” As for Steinem, who briefly wore that bunny suit in the early ‘60s, she preferred not to comment so close to Hefner’s death. “Obit time,” she wrote in an email, “is not the time for truthtelling. People will now be free to tell it, but later.” Former Playmates Kendra Wilkinson and Dasha Astafieva

hen his wife was eight months pregnant with their first child, Warren Lippiatt was told he had five years to live. The soon-to-be father was diagnosed with leukaemia. “Thinking that you may not see your first child go and spend their first day at school was just, oh I can’t describe the feeling at the time,” he told reporters and the prime minister at Royal North Shore Hospital. Later down the track, when his children were three and five, the disease had taken over his body and he had run out of options. “Four-and-a half-years ago, I could barely walk,” he said. But within weeks of participating in a clinical trial of Ibrutinib - also known as Imbruvica - he started to feel better. “This drug has not only saved my life but it’s saved hundreds and it will save thousands of people’s lives in

the future.” Malcolm Turnbull toured the hospital on Monday to announce the drug will be listed on the pharmaceutical benefits scheme from December at a cost of $466 million. “It is a reminder of how keenly focused we are in the fight against cancer,” he said. The medicine, which normally costs $187,390 per course of treatment, will be reduced to $38.80 per script or $6.30 for concessional patients. It will be available to

eligible patients with relapsed or refractory chronic lymphocytic leukaemia or small lymphocytic lymphoma. Normally Ibrutinib is used when patients have not responded to standard treatments. Professor Stephen Mulligan, who was involved in the clinical trials, said previously there were very few other options. “This new drug really has revolutionised the outlook for these patients with a very marked improvement in their overall survival and wellbeing,” he said. It’s estimated the announcement will put the drug within reach of more than 920 Australians each year.

St Bernard in South Dakota has slobbered her way to a new world record. Mochi, also known as Mo, holds the Guinness World Records title for having the longest tongue on a dog. According to Guinness World Records, Mochi’s tongue measures in at 7.31 inches (18.58 cm). Mochi’s owner, Carla Rickert of Sioux Falls, says her dog is happy, but also has some breathing problems because of her long tongue and slobbers more than usual when she’s nervous.

ow wage growth means Australians aren’t reaching into their pockets at the shops, Malcolm Turnbull believes. Retail spending in August declined for a second month in a row, with the 0.6 per cent drop in trade the worst monthly performance in more than four years. It included a 1.3 per cent tumble in cafe, restaurants and takeaway food spending. “While we’re seeing strong growth in employment, we’re yet to see stronger growth in wages so people feel as though they’re not getting ahead,” the prime minister told Neil Mitchell on 3AW radio on Friday. “We need to see more stronger growth in wages.” When there was stronger economic growth, the labour market became tighter and a wage catch-up followed. Mr Turnbull also put lower retail spending down to higher electricity prices.

MUSK REVEALS NEW PLANS FOR MARS MISSION

B

illionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk has revealed plans to put humans on Mars by 2024 and to cut travel times to anywhere in the world to about 30 minutes. Mr Musk outlined the bold agenda for his SpaceX company in Adelaide recently, including the development of a new rocket and spaceship, code-named BFR (Big F*****g Rocket), to carry more than 100 Martian settlers. He believes he could send the first two cargo ships to the red planet by 2022 with the first two crewed craft touching down just two years later. An added bonus could be using the same technology to fly people anywhere in the world, from Los Angeles to Sydney for example, in less than half an hour, potentially revolutionising global transportation with passengers paying essentially the same as they do now for a commercial airline ticket. Mr Musk said he expected to

start construction of the first BFR in 2018 and was “fairly confident” of being able to launch in about five years. “So we start with one ship, then multiple ships and start building up the (Martian) city,” he told the International Astronautical Congress. The BFR will stand 100 metres tall with 31 engines to lift a payload of more than 4000 tonnes into space. Its interplanetary vehicle will be 48 metres long and feature 40 cabins, each capable of carrying three people. But Mr Musk said the cost would be much cheaper than other launch vehicles currently available with the added benefit that it could safely return to earth and be reused. US aerospace giant Lockheed Martin has also revealed its latest plans for a mission to Mars, releasing details of a new lander - a single-stage spacecraft designed to ferry astronauts

he clock is ticking on entrepreneur Elon Musk’s promise to build the world’s largest lithium-ion battery in South Australia within 100 days or provide it for free. But with the facility already half finished, the US billionaire looks set to get paid. Mr Musk travelled to Jamestown, in SA’s mid-north recently, where construction of the 100-megawatt battery is well advanced. The Tesla boss said the South Australian project was an example of how to replace fossil fuels with renewables. “This is a great example to the rest of the world of what can be done,” he said. “When this is done in just few months, it will be the largest battery installation by a factor of three.” The SA battery will be paired to a neighbouring Neoen Hornsdale

Wind Farm to bring added reliability and stability to the state’s power supplies. It is thought to be costing taxpayers about $50 million and forms part of the state government’s $550 million energy plan. Other elements of the energy plan include installing emergency generators at two sites in Adelaide, a push for more gasfired power generation and a solar-thermal power plant near Port Augusta. It was prompted by a series of power issues, including a statewide blackout when a freak storm brought down transmission lines a year ago and another event last summer when heavy demand and a lack of electricity flowing through the interconnector with Victoria cut services to thousands of properties.

TWITTER TO TEST 280 CHARACTER LIMIT

T

witter said recently it is testing doubling the number of characters allowed in tweets on the social media messaging platform. “We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we’re doing something new: we’re going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters,” the company said on its blog. The tweet limit of 140 characters, in place since Twitter was launched in 2006, has led to “cramming” in most languages, meaning users had to leave out words to make their messages fit. “140 was an arbitrary choice based on the 160 character SMS limit. Proud of how thoughtful

the team has been in solving a real problem people have when trying to tweet,” Twitter chief executive officer Jack Dorsey tweeted. The tests will be conducted in all languages except Japanese, Chinese and Korean, because these languages can carry more meaning with fewer characters, Twitter said. Twitter hopes that with the higher character count means users won’t run into the character limit, which will make it easier to send tweets. Right now the 280-character feature is only available to a small group, and the company did not say in the blog entry when all users will be able to use it.

T

he former popstar and actress says that’s because she says she’s found love with the winner, which has been a big relief. She’s getting out of town because she’s sure she’ll accidentally let the winner’s name slip and ruin the suspense of the whole series. “I’m going overseas for three weeks because I can’t (lie). I’m not good with rules so it’s like ‘let’s get me out of here’,” she said. “I didn’t realise how invested the audience is in this brand and I’ve got to not give it (the winner’s name) up for them. I will let it slip, I can’t lie.” But she wouldn’t be in this situation if it wasn’t for her Mum. “My Mum said ‘You should do it’. She just said it flippantly and I was like ‘actually that makes complete sense’,” Monk said. As a well-known personality, Monk had run out of ways to

meet someone so reality TV was almost a last resort. “I can’t do social media dating because it will be everywhere and embarrassing, and also I’d end up with a stalker,” she said. “So that’s why when my Mum said ‘you should do The Bachelorette, it made sense.” So it was Monk herself who set the ball rolling, contacting the show cold to offer herself up as the next Bachelorette. “I rang Channel Ten, flew myself there and did a meeting,” she said. “Everyone was a bit sceptical ... but then they realised I was real, and that’s why they took me on. Otherwise they’d never use someone like me, they don’t want to change the brand.” Monk knows people will think she’s doing it purely for the exposure but insists there are far less embarrassing ways for her to go about that.

A person familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Thursday that suspect Aomar Ait Khedache sent the letter to the investigating judge and that Kardashian’s lawyers have had access to it. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because French

legal rules prohibit anyone from disclosing elements of an ongoing investigation. TMZ website first reported on the letter.

im Carrey has amped up his effort to defend himself against the wrongful death complaint filed by the family of his ex-girlfriend, Cathriona White, who committed suicide in 2015. The comedian’s lawyer, Raymond Boucher, filed a crosscomplaint on Friday claiming that White’s family members, including her estranged husband Mark Burton and mother Brigid Sweetman, filed their wrongful death complaint in 2016 as an attempt to extort large sums of money from him. In the filing, Carrey stated that this marked the second time

White’s lawyer Fillipo Marchino participated in extortion attempts against him. According to Carrey, the first incident occurred in 2013 when White told Carrey “with the participation and assistance” of Marchino that unless Carrey paid her “millions of dollars,” she would “go to the press” with false claims that he had infected White with STDs.

The star will walk the red carpet for the film’s Australian premiere on the Gold Coast, where it was largely filmed and then head to Sydney for another red carpet premiere this time with his co-star Mark Ruffalo. Hemsworth, who lives in Byron Bay, and the film’s director, Taika Waititi, will attend both Australian premieres next month while Ruffalo has just been confirmed for the red carpet in Sydney . In the Marvel universe, this will be Hemsworth’s fifth time playing the hammerwielding Norse god, both in The Avengers movies and in the two previous stand-alone Thor films. The latest Marvel Comics movie will follow Thor as he tries to stop the destruction of his home world Asgard, which is under threat from Hela the Goddess of Death played by Cate Blanchett. The film also stars Ruffalo as the Hulk and Idris Elba as Heimdall, another Norse god. Tom Hiddleston also returns as Thor’s estranged brother Loki. Filming started last year, predominantly on the Gold Coast at Village Roadshow Studios, with Brisbane CBD standing in for New York. * The Australian premiere of Thor: Ragnarok will take place on October 13 at Event Cinemas Robina on the Gold Coast.

R

estaurants are cashing in on the food delivery boom driven by the likes of Deliveroo and UberEATS, as the fast food industry proves slow to adapt. Financial researcher IBISWorld forecasts revenue growth of two per cent for the restaurant industry in 2017/18, with the combined

takings of 28,252 businesses to reach $21 billion. IBISWorld expects that growth to reach 5.8 per cent in 2018/19, and revenue to surpass $30 billion in 2021/22. Revenue for fast food establishments is forecast to rise by only 1.2 per cent in 2017/18, to $19.5 billion, while growth for cafes is forecast to

be 0.8 per cent, to $8.1 billion. Senior IBISWorld analyst Bao Vuong says food delivery apps including UberEATS, Deliveroo, Menulog and Foodora have changed the way time-poor customers dine, and how restaurants are run. They allow customers to search beyond cuisine, price or rating, filtering options based on how quickly the food can be delivered, how close a restaurant is to their location, or whether delivery is free. Mr Vuong said some businesses have created delivery-only menus, pop-up shops without tables and seating, or separate pickup counters for delivery drivers to cater to the growing trend. The researchers found only a quarter of fast food restaurants have integrated new ordering and delivery platforms, and low revenue growth is a result of their lukewarm response to the

innovative business methods. McDonalds and KFC secured partnerships with UberEATS and Foodora respectively in June, Mr Vuong said, despite both delivery applications launching in Australia in early 2016. Red Rooster also recently appeared on Menulog, moving out of its suburban stronghold to feed customers in inner-city Sydney and Melbourne for the first time. The new platforms have also prompted fine dining businesses - 39 per cent of Australia’s restaurants - to lift. “Small tweaks such as improved customer service and enhanced ambience through lighting and increased customer interaction with chefs can go a long way towards combating these apps,” Mr Vuong said. In addition, hatted eateries including Sake (Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne), Three Blue Ducks (Sydney) and Esquire (Brisbane) have all launched on UberEATS with scaled-down menus.

e comes on givin’ lip like your younger brother after a night on the turps. He’s all cheek and twists and a wry smile to keep you fooled. Then launches into some of the best driving blues you’ll hear in yonks. Sammy Owen jumps and jives like a young George Thorogood, he shreds, his lyrics tease, and soon you’ll be yellin’ for more. That’s exactly what to expect when Sammy Owen Blues band returns to Friday Night Blues Club at Seaford Hotel on October 27. It’s always a good fit when you are a left- handed lead guitarist in your own band and luck it in with a left handed bass player. Such was the case with the Sammy Owen Blues Band. Owen, lead vocals and left handed guitar player met Michael Landells, a left handed ’78 Fender Precision bass player some time back and the two hit it off instantly and have been gigging together since. Both guys love playing in the blues vein and being younger musicians, endeavor to keep this tradition alive by being traditional, yet expressing the music in their unique bent. Adding magic to the mix with his Hammond B3 is Liam Kealy who has been with Owen since 2012. They perform songs to certain traditional blues guidelines but add huge amounts of improv and literally play ‘in the moment’ with the vibe of their audience. They all feel this is what blues music is all about. Jessie Bates is the drummer whose Latin and reggae rhythm influence adds a unique version with his smooth rim shots and easy fills amongst spontaneous waw waw riffs, thus making the combo work really well. The Sammy Owen Blues Band plays energetic on the edge style with influences of Albert King, Buddy Guy, and Albert Collins. The original material written is based on everyday Melbourne life with the occasional comical experiences infused, so expect to hear exciting tunes laced with contemporary, funky, lively blues. Next time the boys are in town, get your serious listening ears on and get on down to the Sammy Owen Blues Band cause you’re in for an electrifyingly, intense, ‘give everything’ approach gig. These guys simply dig entertaining a live crowd, whether it is a room full of regular fans or blues fans alike. Sammy Owen Blues Band perform at Seaford Hotel for Friday Night Blues Club at 8pm on October 27. For more details visit pearlhq.com.au or find Sammy Owen Blues Band on Facebook.

“In Bed” with Claudio Baschetti

R

ecently I had the pleasure of filming international singing sensation and model, Claudio Baschetti in his bed for my ‘In Bed Series’ interviews for tlfinternationalmusic.com Sitting on his bed, dressed in suave Italian attire, and barefooted, we chatted about his career in between him singing songs in English and Italian. What more could a girl ask for! Baschetti has been around for a long time and has gained a healthy reputation not only as a ‘hunky’ crooner singing romantic ballads along with classical and modern tunes, but also as a model and actor. Originally hailing from Rome in Italy, Baschetti was a familiar face on TeleVita TV for several years and more recently on Australian television in Jet Star commercials and a Sea Patrol episode. His vast repertoire of songs made popular by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Barry White and Julio Iglesias to name a few, caters for all audiences and keeps him solidly booked Australia wide. Baschetti hopes to be touring the Mornington Peninsula again early 2018. Visit: Claudio Baschetti International singer for more information.

34  ADOPT A PET

Meet April

I’m a bit of a shy girl, but I’m ready to take on the world and start my new life. You wouldn’t know it by looking at my big beautiful smile, but things can be a bit overwhelming for me at times. So I can’t wait to find my forever home where I’ll be introduced to lots of things and be allowed to live inside with you. I haven’t had a lot of experience being around other animals or a lot of people, so I’d like an adult only home with no other pets, so that I can calmly and safely learn about the world. I need someone patient and generous who will give me a chance. RSPCA NO. 831860

Hi I’m Andy, and I’m a big old couch potato! I love nothing more than laying in the sun, and maybe watching some tv while snuggled on your lap.

analysed the debris that reached the West Coast and Hawaii over the last five years, with new pieces arriving Wednesday in Washington. The debris flowed across the North Pacific current, as other objects do from time to time, before it moved north with the Alaska current or south with the California current. Most hit Oregon and Washington. Last year, a small boat from Japan reached Oregon with 20 good-sized fish inside, a kind of yellowtail jack native to the western Pacific, Carlton said. Some of the fish are still alive in an Oregon aquarium. Earlier, an entire fishing ship - the Sai sho-Maru - arrived intact with five of the same 6-inch fish swimming around inside. The researchers note another huge factor in this flotilla: plastics. Decades ago, most of the debris would have been wood and that would have degraded over the long ocean trip, but now most of the debris - buoys, boats, crates and pallets - are made of plastic and that survives, Carlton said.

ARIES Sit tight, Aries, because this is the month you’ve been waiting for. After a bit boring period now a period of excitement awaits you. Your career and personal goals are about to get reshuffled. For a moment you thought your life was going slow but that’s about to change.

TAURUS Passionate Mars spends time in your house of relationship this week turning up the heat (and the tension) in your love life. This mean that you could make love and war at the same intensity. Be careful not to let jealousy get in control because the relationship you are looking at isn’t as stable as it seems to be.

GEMINI Take measurements that make sure you stay in control of situations this week, Gemini. You have the talents to take initiatives and that is practical. On top of that, you are resourceful; you are open-mind. You have the power to do things that some might consider impractical. Take note that appearances matter this week.

CANCER Planetary position suggests that there is a big chance a conflict will arise this week. You want to prove you are right but that’s not wise at the moment. You will have to use some higher principles to really make an impact. To be more specific, keep your ego aside and put yourself in the shoes of the other party and see things from his/her point of view. LEO This week is filled with ups and down, Leo. Just when one problem seems to subside, another one crops up again. It’s important that you resist the tendency to throw your arms in defeat. Push yourself to the limit even if you feel like the end is nowhere in sight. When something is bothering you, it’s better to talk about it.

If you use logic you can solve the puzzle without guesswork.

VIRGO You are a perfectionist by heart and that is no problem most of the time, but this week requires you to balance your desire for perfection with an eye to acknowledge people for their efforts. Be as diplomatic as possible, Virgo. Giving others credit for what they have accomplished will improve productivity and boost morale. LIBRA You are very sociable and you crave the company of people who just “get” you. Your wish is the stars’ command this week, Libra. All the better because you’ll have people who balance you out by having complementary skills. Teaming up for love, work or a creative project is what makes this week exciting. SCORPIO You’re secretly admiring a person from a distance and it sometimes hurts that your efforts are unnoticed. The trick is to leave that person you have an eye on in peace for a while; play hard to get. Don’t ask him/her out just yet because you are going too fast. Take your time. SAGITTARIUS The cosmos could give your confidence a little shake-up this week, Sagi. Are you sure you are able to handle the competition with all those other candidates? You’re tempted to feel all proud and even a bit cocky but that won’t get you anywhere. Tame your ego and stop making it about you. Don’t’ waste your energy and focus on the type that suits you better. CAPRICORN You wonder if your partner loves you enough but you won’t get an answer to that question. A few more questions are added even. Voice your desires, Cap, and see where this leads you. However, watch out because Mars in your sign can make you a bit demanding or impatient.

Art shines a light on social housing NSW F

or more than a month residents of a notorious inner-Sydney high-rise housing commission block have sent a neon message from their apartments over a massive redevelopment plan for their suburb. Many of the more than 3600 residents in the Waterloo public housing precinct fear they will be moved on under the state government’s 15-year development plan for the prime real-estate. Shining coloured lights from their windows has given the residents hope that their message is being heard, says those involved in We Live Here. Residents say they are uncertain how the new Waterloo Metro Quarter led by Urban Growth,

which also involves the construction of a brand new metro station in the heart of the suburb, will play out. The state government has promised “no loss of social housing”, but the residents - mostly elderly - are worried they may live out their final days in temporary accommodation. “There’s actually no young people in those buildings at all. I’d say the average age is between 65 and 75,” We Live Here 2017 producer Carolina Sorensen told AAP. During September, Redfern local Ms Sorensen helped divvy out 500 lights to the residents in the

Matavia and Turanga towers. Residents were encouraged to change the colour of the light beaming out of their apartment window according to their mood. “We are trying to show it’s not just one person who lives here it’s quite a complex community,” Ms Sorensen said. The 40acre redevelopment of the Waterloo Estate social housing is said to be eventually split into 70 per cent privately owned housing, and 30 per cent social housing. Waterloo Public

Housing Action Group chairman Richard Weeks, also a resident of the Solander building, said community members are worried the new units would be considerably downsized, and the new site would have limited green space. Mr Weeks says the We Live Here project has helped transform the residents’ outlook from one of “doom and gloom” taking their minds off the anxiety over the uncertainty of where they would be living. “They see that people out there care and that they matter,” Mr Weeks told AAP. Many residents say they’ll keep their message turned on in the spring nights.

government’s plans, saying they’ll “significantly imbalance the market in favour of tenants”. But the Victorian Council of Social Service said the reforms are particularly important given the increasing numbers of lifelong renters. RSPCA Victoria said making it easier for tenants to keep their pets could significantly reduce the number of dogs and cats surrendered to shelters. Mr Andrews has flagged additional reforms once a review of the Residential Tenancies Act is complete.

FIRST BMW M4 GT4 CONFIRMED FOR AUSTRALIA T he first Australian order for one of the brand new BMW M4 GT4 race vehicles has been placed, with BMW Team SRM set to take delivery of a car inside the next two months. The factory-supported team, run by four-time Bathurst 1000 winner Steve Richards, has secured one of the first GT4-spec racers as part of the initial allocation from BMW Motorsport in Munich. The car will soon be Melbournebound, with BMW Team SRM set to roll it out for a full race programme in 2018 and February’s Bathurst 12 Hour as a start point. This renowned endurance event will be followed by an Australian GT Championship tilt, running at some of the biggest race meetings on the Supercars calendar in a newly-formed GT4 class. It effectively means a twopronged attack for BMW Team SRM next year, with the new car to run alongside the familiar BMW M6 GT3.

NBA REVAMPS ALL-STAR GAME FORMAT T

he NBA is scrapping the East vs. West format for its All-Star Game and will have captains pick teams. On Tuesday the league said the two starters with the highest fan vote totals from each conference will choose teams from the pool of players who were voted as starters and reserves. The change will begin with this season’s game in Los Angeles on February 18. Players and league officials have been eager to inject renewed interest in the often defenceabsent game, and they decided to act after another dull affair last February in New Orleans which the West won 192-182. “I’m thrilled with what the players and the league have done to improve the All-Star Game, which has been a priority for all of us,” National Basketball Players Association president Chris Paul,

of the Houston Rockets, said in a statement. “We’re looking forward to putting on an entertaining show in LA.” The sides worked closely -- with Charlotte owner Michael Jordan, chairman of the league’s Labor Relations Committee, heavily involved in the conversations -and chose a format that has been used by the NFL and NHL. It will be the first NBA All-Star Game doesn’t pit the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference. The 10 starters will be chosen by a combination of fan, player and media balloting, with the coaches from each conference then selecting the 14 reserves. The captains will then draft their teams at an undetermined time -- making certain that those chosen starters are split up so they remain starters.

Melbourne pushes NBA’s Thunder to limit

M

elbourne United had everything from injuries, jet lag, talent and one of the NBA’s most intimidating crowds against them, but they rallied to almost pull off a stunning victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder held on to defeat Melbourne 86-85 in a thriller at Oklahoma’s Chesapeake Energy Arena on Sunday. With five seconds left in the latest NBL-NBA exhibition clash United big man Josh Boone looked like he had the matchwinner, but his shot close to the

basket was blocked by Thunder reserve forward Josh Heustis.0 United retained the ball and with one second to go Heustis was the unlikely saviour again for the All-Star laden Thunder when he blocked Melbourne forward Casey Prather’s potential gamewinning driving lay-up to leave the score at 86-85. “We trusted our defence and I just happened to be in the right position to make the play,” Heustis said. The Australians were not intimidated despite facing some of the NBA’s biggest

stars, including guard Russell Westbrook who just signed a $US205-million contract extension and new All-Star recruits Carmelo Anthony and Paul George. United, led by Casper Ware’s 20 points, six rebounds and three assists and Boone’s 15 points and nine rebounds, including four offensive, remained close throughout the game and held leads for stretches. United pushed the Thunder so hard coach Billy Donovan was unable to rest his starters during the pre-season game, with

George (22 points) playing 39 minutes, Anthony (19 points) on the court for 31 minutes and Kiwi centre Steven Adams (12 points and 10 rebounds) logging 35 minutes. Reigning NBA MVP Westbrook, coming back from injury, played a longer than expected 28 minutes for his nine points, seven assists and five rebounds. Melbourne lost two key players before the game, with Chris Goulding out with appendicitis and Peter Hooley hurting his ankle on Saturday in practice.

WORK OR WILT: HEWITT’S MEMO TO TOMIC

<< cont. from front page...

TA is making no promises after the one-time world No.17 opted out of last year’s Olympic Games and also decided not to represent Australia in Davis Cup this year. Hewitt is hoping the 24-yearold can somehow salvage something from the last month of the season following last week’s second-round loss in Tokyo. “He’s still got a few tournaments. With Bernie, it’s about getting into that routine of playing a lot of matches again. He just hasn’t played enough this year,” Hewitt said on Monday. “Then that cycle of trying to get out of that rut of losing first and second round isn’t easy to do. “His ranking drops off so he’s not seeded in those tournaments. He’s getting tougher draws earlier on then.” As Davis Cup captain, Hewitt will have a big say in whether or not Tomic is granted a wildcard into the first grand slam of 2018. Tomic has traditionally performed well at Melbourne Park, where he won the junior title at 15 and became the youngest player to win a men’s main-draw match at 16. “At the end of the day, he’s still got to work a lot harder,” Hewitt

said. “He’s got to put the hours in on the court, but off the court as well in the gym to go out there and hopefully be ready to play the Australian summer. “The Australian Open, over five sets, you get some pretty bloody hot days there as well that he’s got to be ready to play (in).” Once tight with Tomic, Hewitt was “disappointed and frustrated” that the Queenslander made himself unavailable for Davis Cup in 2017 but said he hoped the former Wimbledon quarterfinalist could revive his career. “I’ve had a few chats with him, so have a few people from Tennis Australia as well. I get along really well with Bernie,” Hewitt said. “Obviously I really tried to to help him out a lot last year, in 2016, and it’s been disappointing. It’s pretty much been 12 months since about September 2016 that he’s really struggled. “I think the tennis community, especially Tennis Australia, would really love him to get back there because he’s a quality top20, top-25 player easily and his goal should be to try and get into the top 10 some day.”

PORT STAR GRAY'S SHOCK CANCER DIAGNOSIS

E

xpecting his first baby later this year, Port Adelaide star Robbie Gray has undergone surgery after a shock testicular cancer diagnosis. A tumour was discovered shortly after the end of the AFL season, with the 29-year-old having surgery to remove it. He will undergo a short course of precautionary chemotherapy, but the club expects he will make a full recovery and be ready to start pre-season training in November. Port Adelaide club doctor Mark Fisher said the surgery was a success but the treatment was still important for the club’s three-time best and fairest winner. “The chemotherapy is a preventive measure to significantly reduce the chance of cancer returning,” he said in a

club statement. The news follows Melbourne forward Jesse Hogan’s testicular cancer diagnosis in May. Like Gray, Hogan had surgery to remove the tumour but did not have chemotherapy and only missed seven games. Three-time All Australian Gray and his wife Annabel, who married in January, are expecting their first baby in the coming weeks. Power football manager Chris Davies said the club was confident Gray would make a quick recovery and they would do whatever they could to support him. “We are thankful the surgery went as well as it could have,” Davies said. “The treatment isn’t expected to interfere with Robbie’s ability to begin pre-season training in November.”

Australian Open to return to Melbourne T he Australian Open will return to Melbourne in 2020 and 2022, ending 15 years of Sydney hosting the country’s premier golf tournament. The Open was last played in the Victorian capital at Moonah Links in 2005, with a venue for upcoming editions undecided. It’s since been shared between Royal Sydney, The Australian, The Lakes and the NSW Golf Club. It is another coup for Melburnians, following the announcement that the 2019 Presidents Cup would be staged at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. The city has been starved of

top-line golf since the Australian Masters was discontinued from 2015, with no certainty about a potential return. “We know that the golf clubs and golfers of Victoria will be delighted to have the Australian Open played on Victorian soil again,” Golf Australia chief executive Stephen Pitt said. “These events will be played on two of our country’s greatest courses and we are expecting them to be wonderful championships.” The Australian will host the tournament in 2017, 2019 and 2021, with The Lakes hosting in 2018.

NEYMAR CALLS FOR BARCA EXPULSION FROM CL

N

eymar has demanded UEFA expel Barcelona from the Champions League in a dispute over a bonus payment. Representatives of the Brazilian made the request to European football’s governing body as a row between the player and his old club over a loyalty bonus continues, England’s Press Association understands. The 25-year-

old completed a world-record transfer from Barca to Paris Saint-Germain in August. His camp insist the timing of the move meant the club were obliged to pay him a loyalty bonus, reportedly worth around 25.6 million euros ($39m). Barcelona were reported to have refused this request and are also seeking repayment of a contract renewal bonus paid when Neymar signed a new five-year contract with the Catalan club in the autumn of 2016. Barca said that payment was worth 8.5m euros. Now Neymar, formerly a Nou Camp favourite, has called on UEFA to kick the five-time European champions out

of this season’s competition. It is understood UEFA is yet to respond to the letter from the Neymar camp. UEFA announced on September 1 it was opening an investigation into PSG’s summer spending to establish whether or not the French club had complied with Financial Fair Play regulations. As well as activating the release clause in Neymar’s contract which equated to a record record 222 million euros at the time, the club have also agreed a loan deal with Monaco to bring in France striker Kylian Mbappe with an option to buy him on a permanent basis next summer for a reported fee of 185 million euros.

RACIAL SLEDGING MADE ME STRONG: KHAWAJA1

T

est cricketer Usman Khawaja has revealed how being racially vilified when he was younger led him to support other countries in international sporting contests and not Australia. Khawaja was born in Pakistan but settled in Australia with his parents and two older brothers when he was five years-old. During high school he says he was regularly called a “F---ing curry muncher”. Playing cricket and working his way up through the grades wasn’t any better. “Getting sledged by opposition players and their parents was the norm,” Khawaja told the PlayersVoice.com website. “Some of them said it just quietly enough for only me to hear. It still hurt, but I would never show it. Most of the time it was when I scored runs. Some parents take things too seriously. “It is for this reason why so many of my friends, most of whom were born outside Australia, didn’t support Australia in sporting contests. I didn’t either. “Especially in cricket. It was either West Indies, Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka. Anyone else. It’s probably why Brian Lara was my favourite cricketer.” But the 30-year-old, who made his Australian debut in the 2011 Sydney Test and has played 24 Tests with a batting average of 45.47, said both cricket and society have matured. “So many times I was told by other sub continental parents,

FIRST HOME ASHES A BIG LURE FOR STARC << cont. from back page...

Mitchell to steal the show. “That (2015) was the year we had the back-to-back Ashes (series) and I picked up a back stress fracture at the back of the Ashes in England, so was unavailable through that for the home Ashes,’ Starc told AAP. “It worked out as a blessing when Mitch ( Johnson) comes in and takes 37 wickets. “It wasn’t great being on the side injured, but all the same Australia won. “It’s something I’m really looking forward to being available for a change having watched the last one when the guys went so well and seeing how much it meant to them. “It’s s very special series

and having won a World up at home, and seen how special that was, you can only draw the comparisons to the Ashes being as big, so looking forward to it. “To play an Ashes series in Australia has always been a dream as a child, to pull on the baggy green, hopefully at the SCG would be pretty cool.” Starc expects to play the remainder of the Blues’s one-day campaign before the Sheffield Shield matches that lead into the first Test at The Gabba starting November 23. “The foot is feeling really good, so for me now it’s looking forward to Friday and then again on Sunday and hopefully we’re playing finals cricket in Hobart,” Starc said.

SMITH’S SWIPE AT TONGA-BOUND FIFITA A

ustralian rugby league captain Cameron Smith has taken a swipe at Andrew Fifita’s last-minute change of allegiance, but admitted he would welcome the Tongan forward back in the green and gold next season if he was selected. Tonga have been the talking point ahead of this year’s

World Cup, with Fifita joining New Zealand enforcer Jason Taumalolo in moves that have the minnows soaring into contention. “World Cup year, it’s almost like a year off where you can pick where you want to play ... I was a little bit shocked, but at the end of the day it’s up to the individual,” Smith said.

CALLS FOR BARCA EXPULSION FROM CHAMPIONS LEAGUE

fter two Ashes series in England, Mitchell Starc is about to fulfil his childhood dream of finally engaging the old enemy in Test cricket combat in Australia. Back playing again after a break of almost four months due to a foot injury, Starc said he was now available for all forms of the game after Cricket Australia had kept him out of a one-day fixture on Sunday. Starc had made his comeback just two days earlier against South Australia. With the home Ashes series starting next month Starc is fired up to add to his eight Tests against England, all away from home, in the lost series of 2013 and 2015. An injury in the latter deprived him of a chance to play a home Test against England later that ...continued year and opened the way for another left-arm quick named on page 62 >>
