CHARGES HAVE BEEN ‘AMPED UP’: DUSTY’S DAD

T

he deported dad of Richmond star Dustin Martin says his criminal record has been “amped up” by police to stop him from re-entering the country. “They amp the charges up to make you look worse, that’s what police do,” Shane Martin told 3AW radio. His comments relate to a burglary charge on his criminal record that he says has been exaggerated. “I was at my sister-in-law’s house and I kicked the door in, I didn’t take anything,” he said.

SHARK ATTACKS SURFER ON NSW NORTH COAST

A

The 35-year-old man has told police he was surfing at Main Beach at Ilukla at 6.30am on Sunday when his board was hit hard from below by what he thinks was a shark. The impact of the ramming tossed him into the air and snapped his board in half. “He’s told police the shark began to circle and then turned away,”police media said in a statement. He grabbed half of his surfboard and swam to shore. Friends drove him to Ballina hospital where he was treated for lacerations to his hip before being sent to Lismore hospital for further treatment.

Police say the 33-year-old was arrested in August after police searched Vu and the two other people who’d been in the corridor of Hunter Arcade in the city’s CBD. Vu pleaded guilty to drug possession when he faced Downing Centre Local Court on Friday. His lawyer Robert Daoud told AAP that Vu was referred to a Magistrates Early Referral into Treatment (Merit) assessment. “My submission was that he doesn’t use drugs, indicating that Merit won’t assist in this regard. He went to the merit officer and he confirmed there is no assistance.” A document tendered to the Downing Centre Local Court on Friday alleges Vu volunteered to police that he had 0.46 grams of the drug and was “extremely cooperative and polite” throughout the incident.

New therapies stop melanoma from spreading

S

cientists have shown they can stop melanoma from spreading to distant organs - a breakthrough that has the potential to significantly reduce the number of Australians dying from the skin cancer, experts say. Two international drug trials led by investigators at Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) - have proven successful in preventing the spread of the disease in Stage III melanoma patients whose tumours had been surgically removed. “These clinical trials show we now have ammunition to prevent melanoma spreading and progressing, which until now was a critical area of disease behaviour where we had no control,” Professor Georgina Long, the institute’s conjoint medical director, said. “Our ultimate goal of making melanoma a chronic rather than a terminal illness is now so much closer to being achieved,” Prof Long said. In Australia, one person dies of Melanoma every five hours. If identified early, melanoma is easily cured via surgical removal from the skin surface. However for about 15 per cent of melanoma patients the disease has spread to the lymph nodes which is classified as Stage III melanoma. Until now, these patients were at a high risk - 40 to 70 per cent - of their disease progressing to advanced and fatal melanoma. Prof Long says the trial results will change the way melanoma patients are treated as well as their quality of life. “Stage III melanoma patients who have had their tumours surgically removed have simply had to play the waiting game, to see if their melanoma would metastasise or spread. Living

with such fear severely affected them and their loved ones,” Prof Long said. For the first clinical trial called COMBI-AD - patients were randomised to receive a combination of targeted therapies (dabrafenib and trametinib) or placebo for 12 months. The drugs work to block the action of a particular gene mutation - known as BRAF - that drives the spread of the disease. This mutation is present in about 40 per cent of melanoma patients. “This trial showed a 53 per cent reduction in the risk of the melanoma coming back,” Professor Richard Scolyer, comedical director at MIA, said. The other trial called CheckMate 238 compared two immunotherapy drugs - novlumab versus ipilmumab - on patients with high risk Stage III and Stage IV disease. “The novlumab caused a reduction in the risk of recurrence of melanoma by 35 per cent, that can work in all melanoma patients not just the ones with the BRAF mutations,” said Prof Scolyer. Published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the results were presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2017 Congress in Spain on Monday. Currently, these drugs are only approved for patients with Stage IV melanoma, however it’s hoped the new research will build on a case to make these drugs available to those with earlier stages of the disease. “Previously there was no therapy for these patients to mop up the tumour cells and these new drug therapies are able to do that, so basically in effect stopping the disease in its tracks,” said Prof Scolyer.

LIL WAYNE IN HOSPITAL Darth Vader actor retiring AFTER SEIZURE: TMZ

ICELAND AGOG AS 1828 MURDER CASE RETRIED

U

S rapper Lil Wayne has reportedly been hospitalised in Chicago after suffering an epileptic seizure. According to TMZ, Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, was found unconscious in his Westin Hotel room on Sunday afternoon. He was taken to Northwestern Hospital where he experienced another seizure. The New Orleans rapper has long suffered from the neurological disorder and has been hospitalised several times in recent years, including a six-day stay in 2013, and following an incident on a cross-country flight in 2016. Wayne, who is currently on tour with Rae Sremmurd, was scheduled to perform at Drai’s Nightclub in Las Vegas on Sunday. The club posted an announcement late Sunday that “Lil Wayne will be cancelling his previously scheduled performance” there.

R

esidents on Iceland’s remote farm of Stapakot were jolted awake on March 14, 1828 when a maid from a neighbouring property burst in to tell them that a fire was raging and two men were trapped inside. It was a lie. The men were already dead - clubbed with a hammer and stabbed 12 times before the house was set ablaze with shark oil. Despite the years, it’s a crime that Icelanders have never forgotten, since the convicted killers were the last people ever executed on this North Atlantic island nation. On Saturday, the crime is being analysed by a mock court that will once again weigh the evidence. The retrial, conducted under modern rules before a threejudge panel, may shed light on the motivation for the slayings, the fairness of the original proceeding, and whether the two maids - Agnes Magnusdottir and Sigridur Gudmundsdottir - had been abused by the man they eventually killed.

he man behind the mask of Star Wars villain Darth Vadar, David Prowse, has dementia and won’t be making any more public appearances. The British actor, 72, announced the decision in a post on his Twitter account on Thursday. “Beginning in January 2018, Dave will no longer be doing any personal appearances or conventions due to health problems.” Prowse portrayed Luke Skywalker’s ominous nemesis in the original trilogy of the sci-fi films, although the character’s voice was famously provided by US actor James Earl Jones. Proswe was reportedly nicknamed Darth Farmer by his late Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher, because of his strong West Country accent. In 2014 it was reported that Prowse had been diagnosed with dementia, and he said in an interview with the Daily Mirror that “there’s nothing you can do”.

SOLAR STORMS LINKED TO WHALE BEACHING This handout image provided by NASA, shows a solar flare erupting on the Sun’s northeastern hemisphere. NASA reports that Solar flares are giant explosions on the sun that send energy, light and high speed particles into space. These flares are often associated with solar magnetic storms known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), some big enough to send their radiation all the way to Earth.

T

he mass beachings of sperm whales in countries around the North Sea last year could have been due to solar storms, German scientists say. Twenty-nine sperm whales washed up on German, Dutch, French and British shores between January and February 2016, surprising scientists after only 82 previous beaching of sperm whales had been documented since the 1990s.

Klaus Heinrich Vanselow, a marine biology expert at the University of Kiel in Germany, studied the connection between whale strandings and two major solar storms that took place at the end of December 2015. The solar storms which create the Northern Lights phenomenon could also have caused the world’s magnetic field to shift by up to 460km which, he said, would interfere with the whales’

sense of orientation. That could explain why the whales swam into the relatively shallow North Sea rather than follow their traditional routes in the Atlantic where they would find it easier to correct their direction. “If whales enter the North Sea they cannot navigate back as it’s an unnatural environment for them and very shallow, whilst if they were in the Atlantic then they could,” Vanselow told Reuters. In research published last month in the International Journal of Astrobiology, Vanselow and his colleagues argued that

the whales would have been unprepared for misleading signals from magnetic shifts because they spend their early years in areas where solar disruptions are weak, such as the waters around the Azores islands in the Eastern Atlantic. Vanselow said he was aware of 34 theories which seek to explain why whales beach and he plans to carry out further research into the possible link to solar storms and Earth’s magnetic field.

inge-watching your favourite television shows might actually make them less enjoyable. Australian researchers discovered that watching too many episodes of a program in one go led to “significantly less enjoyment” than if they were viewed on a weekly basis. It could also affect how well you remember what happened - with binge-watchers forgetting the show’s content more quickly than weekly viewers. Writing in the journal First Monday, the team from the University of Melbourne said: “Binge-watching via video on-demand services is now considered the ‘normal’ way to consume television programs. “In fact, recent surveys suggest upward of 80 per cent of consumers prefer and indulge in binge-watching behaviour. “Although it is a preferred viewing style catered to by many internet-based on-demand distribution companies, bingewatching does not appear to benefit sustained memory of viewed content and may affect show enjoyment.” The study involved 51 graduate and undergraduate students from the university, who were asked to watch the six, one-hour episodes of BBC America’s cold war drama The Game. They were put into one of three groups - the weekly viewers, the daily viewers and the

bingewatchers - and given separate booths in which to watch the show. After the final episode they were asked to fill in a questionnaire, then another 24 hours later, then again twice a week until 140 days had passed. The research found that the binge-watchers remembered most about the content the day after they had finished watching, but showed the steepest decline of any of the groups over the following 140 days. Weekly viewers remembered least after 24 hours, but were able to retain the information for longest - and reported enjoying the show more than any of the others. “Participants in the bingewatching condition reported significantly less show enjoyment than participants in the daily or weekly viewing conditions,” the scientists wrote. “Despite its position as the preferred viewing schedule amongst modern television consumers, binge-watching may affect both sustained memory and... reported show enjoyment levels.”

GERMAN SETS NEW BEER CARRYING RECORD

A

new world record has been set for carrying mugs of beer in southeastern Germany. In Bavaria, which is also home to Oktoberfest, the world’s biggest beer festival, Oliver Struempfel cradled 31 beer-filled tankards stacked up in two tiers, walked 40 metres and then set them down. But two tipped over at the last minute, so that the record is 29 jugs, or more than 69 kg of beer and glass. “I first did 27, because I wanted to be sure and then at the end I said, ‘Let’s add another one and get over 30’,” Struempfel said. “Unfortunately it didn’t quite work, but having managed to put 29 down ... I think it’s amazing.”

To prepare for Sunday’s attempt, Struempfel said, he has trained at the gym three to four times a week since February. “When I think about it, it’s 200 hours for about 40 seconds of walking,” he said after the feat. He had set the previous world record of 25 jugs in 2014, Munich daily Merkur said.

Putin warns of Korean ‘global catastrophe’

R

ussian President Vladimir Putin says the US asking for Russia’s help to control North Korea is a silly request, one that can only be made by people who “mix up Australia with Austria.” He also says imposing tougher sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear missile program would be counter-productive and threats of military action could trigger “a global catastrophe”. Putin, speaking after a summit in China, criticised US diplomacy in the crisis and renewed his call for talks, saying Pyongyang would not stop its missile testing program until it felt secure. “Russia condemns North Korea’s exercises, we consider that they are a provocation ... (But) ramping up military hysteria will lead to nothing good. It could lead to a global catastrophe,” he told reporters. “There’s no other path apart from a peaceful one.” Putin was speaking after South Korea said an

agreement with the United States to scrap a weight limit on its warheads would help it respond to the North Korea threat after Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test recently. Russia, which shares a border with North Korea, has repeatedly joined China in calling for negotiations with Pyongyang, suggesting that the United States and South Korea halt all major war games in exchange for North Korea halting its testing program. The Russian leader lashed out at the United States, saying it was preposterous for Washington to ask for Moscow’s help with North Korea after sanctioning Russian companies accused of violating North Korea sanctions. “It’s ridiculous to put us on the same (sanctions) list as North Korea and then ask for our help in imposing sanctions on North Korea,” said Putin. “This is being done by people who mix up Australia with Austria,” he added.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said Thursday, Aug. 25, 2016, that his country had achieved the “success of all successes” in launching a missile from a submarine, saying it effectively gave the country a fully equipped nuclear attack capability and put the U.S. mainland within striking distance.

he Turnbull government will present to parliament its much-spruiked plan to help first home buyers save for a deposit through superannuation. Legislation to allow people to make up to $30,000 in voluntary super contributions over two years and then withdraw it when ready to buy a property is scheduled to be introduced in the lower house on Thursday. The scheme was announced in the May budget in a bid to reduce pressure on housing affordability. The measure was meant to start on July 1 and Treasurer Scott Morrison has been pushing the scheme, even though it has not yet been

legislated. Labor confirmed last month it will not support the scheme, arguing it won’t do anything to address housing affordability. It believes it will instead

undermine Australia’s superannuation system. The government is also set to introduce a bill that would tax foreign owners who buy residential property and leave it vacant.

No safe injecting room for Vic drug crisis T

he drugs problem in an inner Melbourne suburb has reached “crisis” levels, but a parliamentary inquiry charged with examining a safe injecting centre has failed to provide a path forward. The Legal and Social Issues

Committee has tabled its report into a bill by Sex Party MP Fiona Patten that attempted to create an 18-month medically supervised injecting Centre trial in North Richmond. The report makes 11 findings, but not a single recommendation on the bill. Among the findings are that drug use in North Richmond “has reached crisis levels and is a major concern”. It also found there was a shortage of outlets providing methadone in the

Sewing s Machine

area and an under supply of drug rehabilitation beds in Victoria. Neither the government or the opposition have changed their position against a safe injecting room. “We have no plans to introduce a safe injecting room,” Mental Health Minister Martin Foley told reporters. “This is fundamentally a public health issue that the report identifies, we know there is more to be done in alcohol and drug rehabilitation more generally.” He said the government was investing more in rehabilitation services. Ms Patten was disappointed in

the report, and said the centre was “urgently needed in North Richmond where we are seeing unprecedented deaths due to overdose as well as hundreds, of hundreds of call outs for emergency services”. The Greens have published a dissenting report due to the lack of recommendations. “This report doesn’t provide a path forward, and while the government buries its head in the sand people are dying,” Greens MP and deputy chair of the committee Nina Springle said in a statement.

Kate gets damages for topless pictures A French court has ruled celebrity magazine Closer invaded the privacy of Britain’s Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, when it published topless photos of her in 2012. The court handed the maximum fine of 45,000 euros ($A66,776) to both Laurence Pieau, an editor of Closer’s French edition, and Ernesto Mauri, chief executive of Italian publisher Mondadori, the magazine’s owner. Closer magazine, a weekly round-up of gossip about the rich and famous, published a series of photos of Middleton, the wife of Prince William, second-in-line to the British throne, topless while on holiday in southern France. The court ruling followed an announcement on Monday that the royal couple, a subject of fascination for many in Britain and other parts of the world, are expecting a third child. The office of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said the British royal couple was pleased with the ruling and that the matter is now closed. Kensington Palace said the royals believed the publication of the photos amounted to a serious “breach of privacy” and that legal action should be pursued. The Duchess and her husband, Prince William, “wished to make

the point strongly that this kind of unjustified intrusion should not happen”. Two photographers from a Paris agency, who denied taking the photographs, were ordered to pay smaller fines after also being convicted under French privacy laws. The damages ordered by the court looked well short of the 1.5 million euros sought by the royal couple, who filed the suit for what they called at the time a “grotesque” breach of privacy. The photos were taken as the royal couple relaxed on a balcony of a chateau in the picturesque Luberon region of southeastern France. The pictures rekindled memories for some in Britain of the media pursuit of William’s mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 while being chased at high speed by paparazzi. Closer magazine’s lawyers had sought to justify publication of the photos on public interest grounds, saying they disproved rumours circulating at the time that Middleton might be anorexic. Jean Veil, a prominent French lawyer hired by the Duchess of Cambridge, said during the trial the article that accompanied the photos was only a pretext for publishing the pictures.

I’ve always hated them. “They’re embarrassing, and you have to be careful that your nose doesn’t get in the way, that your lipstick doesn’t get on the man’s white shirt, that he doesn’t squash your boobs. “I had to do one love scene with an actor that I really disliked, and he really disliked me, and it was a nude scene, and it was not nice.” Asked who it was, she named the late US actor and her co-star in The Executioner, George Peppard.

Massive WWII bomb defused in Frankfurt

G

erman explosives experts have defused a massive World War Two bomb in the financial capital of Frankfurt after tens of thousands of people evacuated their homes. About 60,000 people were ordered to leave on Sunday in what was Germany’s biggest evacuation since the war, with more than a thousand emergency service workers helping to clear the area around the bomb, which was discovered on a building site

last week. More than 2000 tonnes of live bombs and munitions are found each year in Germany, even under buildings. British and American warplanes pummelled the country with 1.5 million tonnes of bombs that killed 600,000 people.

Extra security measures were taken at the fiesta in Bunol this year following the vehicle attacks in and near Barcelona this month, with some 700 agents deployed. The party saw 160 tonnes of tomatoes offloaded from trucks into crowds jamming the town’s

streets for the hour-long battle on Wednesday. Participants, including many tourists, don swimming goggles to protect their eyes. Organisers hose the streets down within minutes of the event’s end at noon, while participants use public showers. The event, which costs $US12 ($A15) to attend, was inspired by a food fight between local children in 1945 in the tomatoproducing region.

PUTIN: LEADER IN A.I. WILL RULE WORLD

R

ussian President Vladimir Putin says whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing artificial intelligence will come to dominate the world. Putin, speaking recently at a meeting with students, said the development of AI raises “colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now”. He warned that “the one who becomes the leader in this sphere

will be the ruler of the world”. Putin warned “it would be strongly undesirable if someone wins a monopolist position” and promised that Russia would be ready to share its know-how in artificial intelligence with other nations. The Russian leader predicted that future wars will be fought by drones, and “when one party’s drones are destroyed by drones of another, it will have no other choice but to surrender”.

Pilot Thomas Wodrig of the lifeguard organization DRK (German Red Cross) shows a Rescuecopter beach drone in Germany.

QUEENSLAND LAUNCHES FIRST DRONE STRATEGY

T

he Queensland government will introduce Australia’s first whole-of-government Drones Strategy in a bid to become a world leader in the flying technology Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk made the announcement at the inaugural World of Drones Congress in Brisbane on Thursday, saying the multi-billion-dollar industry could boost the state’s economy. “My government wants to take drone technologies to the next

level and to see Queensland become a world leader in drone investment, research and development,” she said. According to the Civil Aviation Safety Authority, about 25 per cent of Australia’s unmanned aerial aircraft operators are based in Queensland. Ms Palaszczuk said drones were already being widely used across the state, including during natural disasters like Cyclone Debbie, in the film industry and to help monitor the dwindling koala population.

DRONES PATROL QLD BEACHES THIS SUMMER

S

hark detection and rescue drones will patrol some of Queensland’s busiest beaches for the first time this summer. The Westpac Little Ripper Life Saver will be deployed on the Sunshine Coast and at North Stradbroke Island from the end of September as part of a trial with Surf Life Saving Queensland. Another two will be based at Surfers Paradise and Cairns from the end of November. The Ripper Group’s Ben Trollope said the drones had

been trialled at NSW beaches for the past two years, but this was the first time they would be used in Queensland. Drones would primarily be used during emergencies, as they came equipped with speakers, cameras and an inflatable rescue device that could be lowered into the water, Mr Trollope said.

UK sci-fi writer Brian Aldiss dies at 92

B

rian Aldiss, one of the most prolific and influential science fiction writers of the 20th century, has died aged 92. Literary agency Curtis Brown says Aldiss died early on Saturday at his home in Oxford, England. Born in 1925, Aldiss had a huge influence on sci-fi, as both a writer and an editor. His work includes Greybeard, set in a world without young people, and the

Helliconia trilogy, centred on a planet in which the seasons last for centuries. His 1969 short story Supertoys Last All Summer Long was the basis for Steven Spielberg’s 2001 film A.I. Aldiss was awarded the title of Grand Master by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America and was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II.

Earth-sized planets with water found This illustration provided by NASA/JPL-Caltech shows an artist’s conception of what the TRAPPIST-1 planetary system may look like, based on available data about their diameters, masses and distances from the host star. The planets circle tightly around a dim dwarf star called Trappist-1, barely the size of Jupiter. Three are in the so-called habitable zone, where liquid water and, possibly life, might exist. The others are right on the doorstep.

T

hree potentially habitable Earth-sized planets in another solar system are likely to contain substantial amounts of water, say astronomers. The discovery by the Hubble Space Telescope increases the chances of life evolving on planets orbiting Trappist-1, a dwarf star 40 light years from the sun. Each of the worlds orbits in the star’s “habitable zone”, the narrow corridor where temperatures are mild enough to permit bodies of surface water such as lakes and oceans. A total of seven planets similar in size to Earth are believed to circle the cool star. The new research suggests that the outer planets in the system

still harbour large quantities of water, despite powerful radiation from the star leading to enormous levels of water loss. Dr Amaury Triaud, a member of the international team from the University of Birmingham, said: “Hubble’s observations are of great significance, since they inform us on the irradiative environment of the Trappist-1 planets, notably on whether they can remain habitable for billions of years, like Earth has. “However, some of our conclusions about the habitability of Trappist-1’s seven are somewhat dampened by our fuzzy knowledge about the masses of the planets. Crucial observations, able to refine the planetary masses, are being obtained as we

write.” Ultraviolet radiation from a star can cause planets to dry out through a process called disassociation which causes water molecules to break up. The astronomers studied levels of UV radiation emitted by Trappist-1 which suggest its inner planets could have lost 20 times more water in the last eight billion years than all the Earth’s oceans combined. But the system’s outer planets - including the three in the habitable zone - may have lost less than three Earth-oceans worth of water. This means the planets could have retained “substantial” amounts of water on their surfaces, said the scientists.

Camera can see through human body

S

cientists have developed a new camera that can see througth the human body. The device is designed to help doctors track medical tools known as endoscopes, which are used to investigate a range of internal conditions. Until now, it has not been possible to track where the kit is without using X-rays or other expensive methods. The new camera can detect sources of light inside the body, such as the illuminated tip of the endoscope’s long flexible tube. Professor Kev Dhaliwal, of the University of Edinburgh, said: “It has immense potential for diverse applications such as the one described in this work. “The ability to see a device’s location is crucial for many applications in healthcare, as we move forwards with minimally invasive approaches to treating

disease.” Early tests have shown the prototype device can track a point light source through 20 centimetres of tissue under normal conditions. Beams from the endoscope can pass through the body but usually scatter or bounce off tissues and organs rather than travelling straight through. It means it is extremely difficult to get a clear picture of where the tool is. The new camera can detect individual particles, called photons, and is so sensitive it can catch tiny traces of light passing through tissue. It can also record the time taken for light to pass through the body, meaning the device is able to work out exactly where the endoscope is. Researchers have developed the new camera so it can be used at the patient’s bedside. The project - led by the University of Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt University - is part of the Proteus Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration, which is developing a range of new technologies for diagnosing and treating lung diseases.

DATING APP USAGE CITED IN DIVORCE COURTS

N

early 30 per cent of Brits say they’ve used a dating app despite being in a relationship, while more than half of those surveyed would dump their partner if they caught them seeking love online. Law firm Slater and Gordon carried out the research on 2100 respondents in the UK after noticing a spike in the rate of dating apps usage being cited in divorce proceedings. “Although a large number of people have admitted to using dating apps while in a relationship it’s apparent it is not something we are all willing to accept as part and parcel of the modern-day dating life,” Divorce lawyer Niamh McCarthy said.

“Previously these apps wouldn’t have been involved in relationships but within the last two to three years we have seen a steady rise in them being referred to in divorce proceedings.” Of those surveyed some 30 per cent admitted using a dating app while in a relationship, with almost half of men (46 per cent) and just over one in five (21 per cent) women owned up to looking for romance behind their partner’s back. Among men, the top reasons for straying onto dating apps were boredom (10 per cent), a dwindling sex life (nine per cent) and lots of arguments (seven per cent). Women said they used the tools

because they were bored (four per cent, embroiled in arguments (four per cent) or were lacking attention (three per cent). One in five of those surveyed said they “wouldn’t mind” if their partner used a dating app, but half said they would expect their boyfriend or girlfriend to quit using the apps as soon as they became official. Over half (53 per cent) of all those surveyed said they had been cheated on in the past, with 31 per cent finding out after discovering secret messages, a quarter learning of the betrayal from a friend, and one in five catching their cheating partner in the act.

Skarsgard takes on clown villain Pennywise B

ill Skarsgard could hear the crew whispering excitedly when he first arrived on the set of his new horror film It, based on the classic novel by Stephen King. “They were like, ‘Oh, Pennywise is on set today,’” the lanky, 191cm tall, Swedish-born actor told AAP. “I thought, ‘That was cool. They’re super excited’.” The crew and other cast, mostly boys, had been shooting for one and a half months in Canada, but Skarsgard, purposely, had stayed away. Skarsgard plays Pennywise, the sadistic, blood-thirsty, supernatural clown who intermittently appears from the sewers and abducts children in the small town of Derry, Maine. The actor did not want to build rapport with the young cast. His first scene was with 14-yearold Jack Grazer and it required

Skarsgard, in his full terrifying clown prosthetics, make-up and costume, to crawl out of a fridge. Pennywise’s mouth is dripping with drool. “I didn’t want to hold anything back and I’m mocking him and he’s crying,” Skarsgard recalled. “He has a hard time breathing so I’m mocking that and I’m in his face and drooling over him and smelling him. “I’m so into his face. “Then they said ‘cut’. “I was like ‘Oh no! Are you OK Jack?’. “I thought I traumatised him.” Skarsgard is great in the scene, but young Grazer was also impressive. Grazer instantly stopped his tears and then gave Skarsgard a true Hollywood moment. “Jack goes, ‘I love what you’re doing man. I love what you’re doing’,” Skarsgard laughs. “It was the funniest thing ever.

“They are all little professional actors.” King first published It in 1986 and Tim Curry played Pennywise in 1990’s It TV mini-series. King didn’t push to be involved in the new film, but director Andy Muschietti and the screenwriters and producers showed the author drafts of the script, audition tapes and screened the film for him. To their relief King’s reaction was positive. Skarsgard, whose previous roles include Allegiant, Atomic Blonde and Hemlock Grove, comes from a family of actors headed by his father Stellan and including brothers Alexander, Gustaf and Valter. He joked if his Hollywood career dried up he could now hire himself out as a clown at kids’ birthday parties. “Maybe that will be my go-to gig,” he laughed.

But since she first picked up her L plates in 2002, Curuenavuli has racked up 11 driving offences, all without ever having qualified to drive. She pleaded guilty on Monday in Mt Druitt Local Court to bribing a Roads and Maritime Services official $850 for the licence and will be sentenced in December.

‘MICKEY’ SINGER SUES OVER RIPOFFS T

oni Basil, the one-hit wonder behind the 1980s song “Mickey,” has filed a lawsuit in a Los Angeles court on Thursday alleging that the song has been used without her permission for decades. According to the suit, Basil recently became aware that the song was used in an episode of South Park, in a Forever 21 ad, and on an episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She was particularly offended that the Forever 21 campaign was in support of a line of Disney products, associating her song with Mickey Mouse. “Basil was never consulted and would never consent to the use of her voice, persona, image, or name coupled with Disney products,” the suit states. Since finding that her song was misused, Basil has become “withdrawn, despondent, and physically ill,” the suit alleges, and has experienced “sleep deprivation, nightmares, and anxiety.”

Hayek gets dirty in Hitman’s Bodyguard

I

n the new action-comedy film The Hitman’s Bodyguard Salma Hayek plays a foulmouthed, heavily tattooed wife of a contract killer. She’s locked up in a Dutch prison and her swearing - in English and Spanish - will make a sailor blush. So, as I sat down with Hayek and Samuel L. Jackson, her contract killer hubby, in a Beverly Hills hotel I suggest the Mexican beauty’s mouth was so vulgar in the film that it should be washed out with soap. Jackson, the king of the movie F-bomb, seems OK with the idea. “Wait a minute!” Hayek protests. “It’s OK for a man to say it, but not a woman?” I tell her, while attempting to keep a straight face, it is it not OK. She is a lady, and ladies don’t have sewer mouths. I thought Jackson was on my side, but suddenly he switches teams and begins to back up his co-star. “I thought you were from Australia?” Jackson says. That is true, and Australians are known for swearing, but I decide to lie to two of Hollywood’s biggest stars. “Australians don’t swear,” I tell them. Jackson, a regular visitor to Australia for small-budget films like Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Kong: Skull Island, refuses to accept my lie. “Australian women don’t swear?” he asks. “Never,” I reply in a kind of

convincing way. “I’ve been in the wrong parts of Australia,” Jackson laughs. There’s plenty of laughs and action in the The Hitman’s Bodyguard, directed by Australia’s Patrick Hughes (Red Hill) and shot by another Aussie, cinematographer Jules O’Loughlin. Jackson’s assassin character, Darius Kincaid, is forced to team up with a bodyguard (Ryan Reynolds) to travel from England to The Hague. Kincaid is the star witness in the International Criminal Court trial of a Belarusian tyrant played by Gary Oldman. Kincaid agrees to testify as long as Hayek’s character, Sonia, is freed from prison, but the tyrant has unleashed assassins of his own to kill Kincaid before he gets to court. I ask Hayek if it was fun letting rip with some of the foulest language on the planet - some of it she adlibbed. “Remember, a lot of them were in Spanish,” she says. “Yes”, I respond before repeating one. It was a swear word I became fond of after hearing it repeatedly in the great Netflix TV series Narcos and Hayek drops it a couple of times in the movie. I thought it simply meant “prostitute” - well that’s what Google translate told me - but Hayek knew she had me. “Is that a bad word?” I ask. “It’s really bad so I’m going to take the soap now and clean your mouth,” she smiles. OK. Sounded good to me.

Matt Okine gets clever in the kitchen techniques by the chefs, and he didn’t need any convincing to get on board. “Who wouldn’t want a job that involves smashing food into your face for eight hours a day?” he said. “I’ve always loved cooking so to get paid to learn secrets from the best is genuinely a dream.

Beer still Australia’s drop of choice

F

or a hard-earned thirst, Aussies can’t go past a big cold beer. And the best cold beer by far is full-strength, according to new data. Figures published recently show beer made up 40 per cent of the 189 million litres

of pure alcohol available for consumption in Australia in 2015-16. That’s about 3.9 litres per person aged 15 years or older. It’s the first time in nearly a decade that number has increased, bucking the longterm trend.

kitchen now. If something goes wrong, there’s usually always a way to save it. Stay calm, and remember that you learn most from the mistakes. So embrace the stuff-ups,” he said. While the chefs he worked with were diverse, there were a few tricks of the trade he noticed they had in common. “Sharp knives, I was so jealous of their knives,” he said. “They all had fun and nobody follows the rule book. Cook to your tastes, use the ingredients that you’ve got, and take some risks. One person’s trash is another person’s treasured tomato relish recipe, so never get stuck thinking there’s a right or a wrong in the kitchen.” He also learned what not to do in the kitchen, and found his biggest problem was trying to cram too many ingredients into the one frying

pan. “Pots and pans are like trains. It’s a million times better being in one if you don’t have your face mushed into someone else’s armpit. Give your food some space,” he said. There was one piece of advice from one chef in particular that really stuck with Okine. “Mark LaBrooy (The Blue Ducks) taught me that salt is like a microphone for flavour,” he said. “If you want to make a drum kit sound loud, don’t just stick a big mic in front of the whole thing, because then you can’t control how loud you want the kick or snare to be. And the same goes for salt - so salt things in stages.” *Short Cuts To Glory: Matt Okine vs Food airs on Thursdays at 8pm (AEST) on ABC and ABC iview

Wine accounted for 37.5 per cent of total volume, spirits and ready-to-drink beverages 18.8 per cent and cider 3.8 per cent. In total, there was 9.7 litres of pure alcohol was available for drinking per person equivalent to an average of 2.1 standard drinks a day. The amount available is up from 2014-15, marking the first rise in nine years, but still consistent with the downward trend over recent decades.

Beer was the main contributor to that increase, although the volume of pure alcohol available for consumption as pre-mixed drinks and spirits also rose. The data, released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, does not take into account duty-free alcohol brought into Australia by travellers, stored or cellared alcohol, or that used in food or thrown out.

Quinoa is good for the heart, say researchers

A

ustralian researchers say they’ve proven that eating quinoa is good for the heart and recommend occasionally swapping a bowel of rice for the ancient grain. A small study published in journal Current Developments in Nutrition found the consumption of 50 grams of quinoa every day for 12 weeks significantly lowered levels of triclycerides - a type of fat in the blood linked to heart disease - in a group of overweight and obese people. “Whether quinoa is a ‘superfood’ is still up for debate, but we can now confidently say it does deliver health benefits,” said lead author Diana Navarro-Perez at La Trobe University. High levels of triclycerides

have been extensively linked to a greater risk of cardiovascular disease because essentially their is more fat circulating through the body. Navarro-Perez explains this fat can eventually lead to a blockage in the arteries. “If you have lower levels of triclycerides you reduce your vascular disease risk,” she told AAP. As part of the study, participants were randomly broken up into three groups. One group was allocated to eat 25g of quinoa, another 50g and the third group stuck to their normal diet and avoided eating quinoa. At the end of the three months, no significant differences were observed in body size or effect on total

cholesterol. However, a significant difference was noted for triglycerides. Triglyceride levels reduced by an average 12.7 per cent among the participants who ate 50g, according to the findings. No significant change in triglycerides were observed in the control and 25g groups. It’s still not understood why quinoa consumption resulted in a reduction of triglycerides. Previous animal studies suggest that proteins found in the grain may boosts the ability of the bile acid in the stomach to better absorb the fat. Ms Navarro-Perez says in light of the findings more

Australians should eat quinoa. “You will get more benefits from eating quinoa than eating rice because in rice there is really no functional ingredients whereas in quinoa we know now that if you eat 50 grams of quinoa, which is four tablespoons, per day you have a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease,” she said.

Breakfast vital for kids’ nutrition: study

C

hildren and teenagers who skip breakfast are missing out on key nutrients needed for their growth and development, British research suggests. The findings appear to support the claim that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Scientists used food diaries to assess the breakfast habits of 802 children aged four to 10 and 884 young people aged 11 to 18 across the UK. More than a quarter of the older participants missed

breakfast every day between 2008 and 2012 compared with just 6.5 per cent of the four to 10-year-olds. The study showed that 31.5 per cent of those who skipped breakfast were not getting the recommended minimum daily amount of iron. Nineteen per cent did not meet the lower recommended nutrient intake (LRNI) for calcium, and 21.5 per cent did not meet the LRNI for iodine. None of the children who consumed breakfast every

day had a folate intake below the LRNI, compared with 7.3 per cent of those who avoided the morning meal. Lead researcher Dr Gerda Pot, a lecturer in nutritional science at King’s College London, said: “This study provides evidence that breakfast is key for parents to ensure that their children are getting the nutrition they need.” The findings are published in the British Journal of Nutrition.

Mornington Peninsula’s first Beer, Wine and Cider Festival ....continued

Mornington Peninsula. The festival will showcase some of the Peninsula’s most popular venues while also shining the spotlight on lesser-known, hidden gems. “The Mornington Peninsula is wellknown for its wineries and is also celebrated for its microbreweries and cideries. We are bringing a selection of these together for a fun-filled festival weekend, so people can experience the diversity of the Peninsula,” said Lisa MacGregor, Event Producer of the Peninsula VineHop Festival. “It is not just another wine festival,” said Lisa. “There is something to excite craft beer lovers, pinot drinkers, cider sippers – there is even a distillery involved that produces gin and other spirits.” The ten festival locations are Blue Range Estate Wines, Dromana Estate, Hickinbotham Estate and Hix Beer, Merricks General Wine Store at Baillieu, Mock Red Hill, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Nazaaray Estate Winery, Phaedrus Estate, Red Hill Brewery and Red Hill Estate. “There are also three pop-up bars –

Jetty Road Brewery at Dromana Estate and Bass and Flinders Distillery and Mr Banks Brewery at Red Hill Estate – which really adds to the variety people can enjoy during the festival,” Lisa said. Festival-goers gain exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ access at some venues. Baillieu vineyard, rarely open to the public, will be opening for the weekend and the Mornington Peninsula Brewery will host the festival at its production site. Mornington Peninsula Brewery and Red Hill Brewery will also be developing special brews exclusively for the VineHop Festival. Each location will feature live bands or DJs and will have food available, either through their own restaurant or from some of Melbourne’s best food trucks. Details are being finalised and will be announced shortly. Tickets for the Peninsula VineHop Festival are now on sale and start from $38. A limited number of Festival PreSale tickets are available. Transport can also be booked, including shuttle buses, set tours and private buses. For more information about tickets, transport, participating venues, food trucks and entertainment visit the official website vinehopfestival.com.au

hen John Farnham records two of your songs, Take You Back & Sometimes, on his ‘Anthology’ album, and you’ve played with Renee Geyer, Tommy Emmanuel and Daryl Braithwaite, as well as slide guitar on Glenn Shorrock (Little River Band) acoustic CD; it’s little wonder that local lad, Steve Romig had the cream of Australian music recently jump on board and record his Come My Children, an environmental song with a story spanning 25 years. Supporting him were Russell Morris, Mike Brady, Mike Rudd, Joshua Romig and Yvens Ferraz De Camargo to name a few. Says Romig, “The story is a call to arms as well as an affirmation. People can have a positive effect on the environment by making simple decisions about what they buy and how they live each day. Our united voices will make the changes necessary to create energy sources that are environmentally responsible and renewable. Know this: The fate of the entire world is in the hands of mankind. This is the message of the song.” YouTube link: Steve Romig Come my Children. Story by Terri Lee Fatouros

I’m devilishly handsome and have big brown eyes that make the ladies go weak at the knees. I’m also a bit of an astrology connoisseur (I’m a Leo), so if anyone out there is a Gemini or Aquarius we’re guaranteed to live happily ever after together! I’d like to live in a home with no other pets, but kids that weren’t too little would be cool to play with. If there’s someone who’s looking for a jogging companion then I’m definitely your man.

TAURUS You’re ready for a new season, Taurus. Roll up your sleeves because a busy but energetic September awaits you. Projects that seem to have been stuck will finally start moving forward again. You feel a greater sense of inspiration running through your veins this month that will help you finish whatever task has been plaguing you for a while now. Be dynamic and flexible when setting goals.

GEMINI Got dreams? Dive in and bring out those hidden powers within yourself, Gemini. Rely on yourself and don’t be afraid to realize your plans. Push obstacles like the opinion or criticism of others aside. Try not to live up to the expectations of the people around you all the time. If you’re working on a new and sensitive project, pay attention to the details and make sure you do precision work.

CANCER The quest to your true self continues this month of September. Don’t lock yourself up inside of you but be open for almost anything new. This month presents new avenues of projects and activities you can open up to. Believe in yourself, Cancer. It’s time for creative, new ideas and interesting changes but that will only happen if you make an effort.

ARIES A lot of things are buzzing this September and it seems as if you are the centre of everything. Fortunately, you’re a warrior who’s pumped up into a fighting shape. Watch out though because this enthusiasm can crank up your stress levels. The key is to delegate! Don’t take on too much obligations, Aries. Otherwise you could seriously disappoint yourself and some people.

LEO September revolves around balance. And to stay balanced you need a stable base, Leo. Sometimes that base needs some cleaning up and this month is a great month to do that. Be determined when handling things. You might have the feeling that you have lost your edge in the career world, but you have to keep your chin up. Don’t underestimate your power to accomplish what is most important.

VIRGO Some things really need to be solved now, Virgo. The cosmos blesses your house of closure and transitions which helps you forgive and move on. Meanwhile, mental Mercury gets into your house of focus, giving you powers of concentration. It’s a great time for research and accepting the challenge of a detailed project. LIBRA This should be happy and high-energy time for you, Libra. You’re facing some major challenges that could affect your personal and professional life. You are the type of person who dives from one thing into another. You can never completely stop that stream of thoughts in your mind. The word “peace” should be a part of your dictionary every now and then, or else you’ll lose energy. SCORPIO September comes with its ups and downs, Scorpio. The challenge is how far you can go with your flexibility. Peacefully look at the situation in this new light and only draw your conclusions when you’ve figured everything out. Don’t make any rushed decisions but once you have taken a decision you won’t let anything or anyone change your mind again. SAGITTARIUS The month of September is all about new things. New projects, new activities, maybe a new hobby, or new acquaintances. This is your month, Sagi, so don’t let anyone take it away from you. The key is to get a head start on whatever goals you wish to accomplish. Don’t overthink as you how you’re going to accomplish them. Just get into action. CAPRICORN The month of September could bring some serious and unexpected twists. Try to be positive and active, Cap. Don’t let everything passively come your way. Ground your mind and use it to take a rational approach to your feelings. Try to take control of the situation: at work but also in your personal life and even in love. Soon the truth of the situation will become clear. AQUARIUS A lot of things are heading towards you this month, Aquarius. Keep your head cool, be thorough and don’t believe everything that is being told to you. Things should go well as long as you keep the drama to a minimum. You have the tendency to make things look better than they really are. Face the truth even when it’s hard for you to accept things. PISCES You are aware that you will have to change certain things in your life. Changes in your behaviour, your rhythm, the amount of work or obligations you accept or the changes in your relationship to others. It won’t be easy to make these changes happen but this month is the ideal period to start with it.

NEW MERCEDES-BENZ G-CLASS PROFESSIONAL WAGON AVAILABLE

T

he tough Mercedes-Benz G-Class Professional range is set to go on sale in Australia, having already joined forces with around-theworld explorer Mike Horn to complete one of this country’s most inhospitable terrains, from Birdsville, through the Simpson Desert and to finish in sight of Uluru. Three G 300 CDI Professional Wagons and two Cab Chassis models completed an eightday trek from Birdsville to the shadows of Uluru, tackling steep sand dunes and bone-rattling corrugations in their stride. Accompanying the G Professional fleet were a pair of G 500 wagons (Left Hand Drive) that have accompanied Horn for much of his current trip, a two-year bid to circumnavigate the globe via its two poles. Horn has driven a succession of G-Class vehicles throughout a career in exploration that spans two decades. The 51-year-old South African-born Swiss insists he would not drive anything else. “(The G-Class) became a tool. Like my boat that can break ice and take me to Antarctica, it too has become a significant part of my exploration,” he says. Australia is the only market

4WDS

in the world to receive the G 300 CDI Professional Wagon and Cab Chassis models for civilian purchase, which have been designed to provide the toughness and utilitarianism needed for commercial or private off-road endeavours. Since being launched in 1979, the Mercedes-Benz G-Class has carved a stellar reputation for its outstanding off-road prowess, toughness, and durability. It remains the vehicle of choice for numerous military forces around the world and won the Paris-Dakar Rally in 1983 in the hands of Jacky Ickx and Claude Brasseur. The G 300 CDI Professional Wagon and Cab Chassis variants are powered by a 2987cc sixcylinder turbocharged diesel making 135kW and 400Nm, coupled to a five-speed automatic and permanent all-wheeldrive with a 50:50 split. Both vehicles are equipped as standard with three 100 per cent differential locks that are selectable on the move, as well as

SOCCEROOS SET FOR ANOTHER MIDDLE EAST TRIP

T

he Socceroos’ path to the World Cup is about to get even tougher with next month’s qualifying play-off against Syria likely to be played in the Middle East - not in Malaysia. War-torn Syria has not played on home soil since 2010 and staged all of their third-round Asian qualifiers in Malaysia, where it was anticipated they would play host to Australia on October 5. But it’s understood there are moves being made by Syria’s football association to ensure the clash will be held in either Jordan, Qatar or the United Arab Emirates - instead of on Australia’s doorstep in south-east Asia. Reports from overseas suggest Abu Dhabi is the frontrunner. Football Federation Australia is eagerly awaiting the venue announcement from the Asian Football Confederation, with

official word expected in the next 24 hours. “We haven’t heard anything officially but we’re also watching to see when the venue will be confirmed,” FFA chief executive David Gallop told AAP. The return leg, on October 10, is locked in for ANZ Stadium in Sydney. The Socceroos have traditionally struggled in the Middle East and have won just two of their last five qualifiers in the region. However, the most recent win was one of Australia’s best performances in recent memory, beating the UAE 1-0 in steaming conditions in Abu Dhabi last November. The winner of the two-legged clash between Australia and Syria will take on North and Central America’s fourth-best team in another play-off for a spot at Russia 2018.

TOMIC ‘A LONG WAY OFF’ DAVIS CUP: HEWITT

H

e’s been Australia’s best Davis Cup performer since legendary warrior Lleyton Hewitt, but Bernard Tomic is now “a long way off” a national recall after losing control in 2017. So says Hewitt himself, with the Australian captain breaking his silence on Tomic to reveal the one-time spearhead is languishing down the pecking order after a nightmare season. From No.17 in the world in January 2016, Tomic has plummeted to 146th in the rankings. The former grand slam quarter-finalist now faces the prospect of having to qualify for the Australian Open in January -- or ask Tennis Australia for a wildcard that the governing body is unlikely to grant after years of battles with the Tomic family. After reaching the third round of this year’s Australian Open, Tomic’s spectacular decline has coincided with his decision to sit out Davis Cup and effectively alienate himself from Hewitt and ex-teammates. Tomic has also cut ties with Hewitt’s management company, but Hewitt insists the pair remain on good terms. “My relationship’s been fine with him. No, it’s always been fine with Bernie,” Hewitt told AAP ahead of Australia’s semi-final with Belgium starting on Friday

in Brussels. “But at the start of the year he opted not to play the Davis Cup and then, I guess, things just snowballed for him in terms of where it started getting a bit out of control with how he was playing. “Also his lack of fitness, I guess, and being able to last five sets, which is a massive issue in Davis Cup. “And now, some of these young boys that I’ve been able to pick and I’ve given the opportunity to have taken it with both hands as well. “So Bernard, it will always be open, that opportunity to come back. “But he’s a long way off it right at the moment.” Tomic, who built an impressive 17-4 win-loss record since debuting as a teenage prodigy in 2010, says he’d like to return to the team competition in the future but concedes he hasn’t been “mentally there” in 2017. Hewitt will instead rely on Nick Kyrgios, Jordan Thompson, doubles specialist John Peers and the recalled Thanasi Kokkinakis -back from injury for his first tie in two years -- for this week’s indoor claycourt match-up with Belgium. Success for Australia would mean hosting either France or Serbia in the November 24-26 final.

Kahu may miss NZ’s World Cup campaign B

risbane winger Jordan Kahu says he may have to miss New Zealand’s endof-season Rugby League World Cup due to groin surgery. Kahu says he will be able to nurse the injury through Brisbane’s NRL title tilt and retain goalkicking duties ahead of Friday night’s knockout semifinal against Penrith at Suncorp Stadium. But Kahu may have to skip the World Cup starting in late October if scans indicate he needs to go under the knife. “I still have to have scans but it is looking that way,” Kahu said of end of season surgery. “It is pretty sore but being this time of the year it is just something I push to the back of my mind.” Kahu may be considered for fullback against ex-Broncos coach Anthony Griffin’s Panthers with Brisbane still sweating on skipper Darius Boyd’s hamstring. Boyd missed their tight opening finals loss to Sydney Roosters and is racing the clock to be fit for the knockout clash with Penrith. David Mead filled in at fullback against the Roosters but a

backline reshuffle may be on the cards to help keep Brisbane’s title tilt alive. Kahu admitted Brisbane faced a tough call on whether to roll the dice with Boyd’s fitness. “It’s a hard thing. If we win this game and he does play and he gets hurt we miss him for the rest of the year, so we will see,” he said. “He is a crucial player, our team captain and we would love to have him back - it will be a tough decision.” Kahu backed himself to retain goal kicking duties despite nursing his groin complaint. The Kiwi international admitted he would have to wait until match eve to practice his goal kicks but didn’t believe that would be a problem. “Personally I just want that job. I want to be able to take those big kicks in the finals,” he said. Kahu expected Brisbane to respond against Penrith after copping a cranky Wayne Bennett after their disappointing opening finals effort. “How cranky was Wayne? He was up there, that’s all I can say about that,” Kahu smiled.

SMITH BEST JT HAS PLAYED ALONGSIDE << cont. from back page...

the 36 Tests they have played together for Australia. Smith is also the greatest match winner in NRL history, with 252 wins to his name at a strike rate of over 70 per cent. The 34-year-old’s dominance over the code is likely to be rammed home this month. He stands a chance to claim both the Players’ Player award at the Rugby League Players Association awards night on Tuesday, and is favourite to clinch the Dally M medal in a fortnight. Smith could also win a fourth premiership as captain, with Melbourne just one win away

from another grand final. Meanwhile, rugby league legend Brad Fittler said it was Smith’s smart approach to the game which made him the best in the business. “I think we have gone through an era where the referees and the way they adjudicate a game, if you are smart enough you can adapt to their terminology of the rules,” Fittler said. “Cameron Smith has done that better than anyone by a long way. He is the smartest without doubt I have ever seen and obviously the most influential.”

emotional cogs turning. A realisation hit him. “I was trying to be perfect,” he told Channel Seven recently. As the long-term captain of an underperforming club, Cotchin had lived in the shadows of the game’s great leaders - Luke Hodge and Nick Riewoldt among them. Cotchin said he was trying to lead like them - rather than find his own style. “You look at the Rooeys, the Hodges, and you’re trying to be something you’re not ... I’m not these guys,” he said. “I needed to define my own way of leading. “I’m not saying I was a bad leader before this. I have just shown up. “I had a conversation with Dimmers about where I was as a person, as a player and as a captain. “That seemed to be the moment that things turned. I seeked help in a way and couldn’t be happier.” Nor could Tigers fans. Richmond are just one win from the grand final after the 51-point victory over the Cats.

They will host their first home preliminary final since 1973 - to get to the decider. Cotchin said the Tigers wouldn’t be changing a thing in the fortnight before the game. “We are just encouraging guys to be themselves. To show up, play to their strengths and just enjoy it,” he said. “The number one thing for us is we’re just embracing that everyone is different. We’re celebrating that.” Against Geelong, Cotchin was a superb leader. His numbers weren’t off the charts - just 20 touches, but seven clearances and nine tackles - but the Tigers No.9 led from the front. Cotchin also cashed in on Richmond’s late dominance with a stunning spin and running goal in the fourth term. “It sat up nicely (and) I had speed out of the contest. I just threw it on the hoof - it was a genuine floater,” he said. “That was just a bit of icing on the cake of what was a really enjoyable match. “Not just kicking goals in the last quarter but the way we showed up and fought.”

AUSSIES AND INDIA TO RENEW RIVALRY IN ODIs S

teve Smith expects tensions between Australia and India will cool during the ODI series that starts on Sunday. Smith’s squad has landed in India, where they’ll contest five one-dayers and three Twenty20s before heading home to prepare for the Ashes. Australia’s previous visit to the country was marred by a series of controversies, the bulk of which involved Smith and/or opposing captain Virat Kohli. Smith expects a far less fiery contest than the Test series that unfolded in February and March. “I think it’ll be played in good spirit,” Smith told reporters in Chennai, where his side will face a local XI on Tuesday in their only warm-up before the series starts in the same city. “It’s always a hard-fought contest playing against India.” Kohli remarked after India’s 2-1 Test series win over Smith’s side that he is no longer friends with Australian players and never will be. The firebrand’s antics and words ensured he was a near-constant presence in the headlines earlier this year, but he struggled with the bat.

Kohli managed just 46 runs at an average of 9.2; the superstar has never logged a lower average in a Test series. He has since returned to form, finishing a recent limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka with knocks of 82, 110no and 131. “He is obviously a very good player and has a phenomenal ODI record,” Smith said. “Hopefully we can keep him quiet as much as possible in this series. “If we do that then hopefully it can go a long way in us having success on this tour.” Coach Darren Lehmann has returned home, with David Saker to mentor the squad in India. Smith, who captained Australia to a recent 1-1 drawn Test series in Bangladesh, rejected the notion another month on the subcontinent would hamper his side’s Ashes preparation. “I don’t think there is a problem with that,” he said. “I know before the last Ashes series (in Australia, 2013/14) there was a one-day series here as well. “There is plenty of time when we get back home and play some Shield games also and get ready for the Ashes.”

FISHINGREPORT NBL aims to TIDE TIMES knock cricket off summer perch A

mbitious NBL owner Larry Kestelman is dreaming big ahead of the new season, declaring basketball can overtake cricket to become Australia’s most popular summer sport. And he’s promising a reality TV-style promotion of the game’s biggest stars to take basketball to the top of the heap. The NBL on Monday launched its new season, which starts in October, buoyed by increased interest in 2016-17 and a record number of Australians in the NBA. Speaking at the league’s launch in Melbourne, Kestelman made his bold declaration. “The sleeping giant of Australian sport is awake and we are coming,” he said. “People have forgotten the popularity and how good we are at this sport. We are bloody amazing. “We are the sport every other sport wants to be. “We want to be Australia’s No.1 summer sport and one of the biggest sports in the country.” Kestelman took control of the ailing competition in 2015 and has invested heavily in promoting the league and sport.

The next step in promoting the NBL, which sits behind both cricket and soccer for summertime pastimes, is building a “deeper engagement” with players. “It’s surprising how little the fans know - not just about their players,” he said. “We liken it a bit to a reality TV show. We’re going to tell a lot of stories, reveal a lot of history of the players, hardships, failures. “We want our fans to get to know their players and just as importantly the other players.” Kestelman has a supporter in Melbourne United and Boomers shooting guard Chris Goulding. The 28-year-old will spearhead United’s hopes of a maiden NBL championship under Kestelman’s ownership, praising the businessman for his efforts to promote the sport. “What we’ve done is jump from obscurity to being back on the landscape in two years thanks to the team at the NBL,” he said. “I’m excited about it.” The league will be screened on Fox Sports, with Kestelman guaranteeing a free-to-air TV deal would be struck before the season tips off on October 5.

AFL flag fancies Crows train on Gold Coast T

he Adelaide Crows are training on the Gold Coast with vice-captain Rory Sloane rated a certain inclusion for their home AFL preliminary final. The Crows squad is spending a couple of days in Queensland, returning to Adelaide on Tuesday ahead of their weekend off. Sloane (appendix) missed a 36-point qualifying final win against Greater Western Sydney, with the Crows to host either Geelong or Sydney in a preliminary final.

Sloane is a likely straight swap for Brodie Smith, who requires a knee reconstruction after being injured early in the win over the Giants. The Crows have three players out for the season - rookies Jordan Gallucci (jaw) and Elliott Himmelberg (foot) and midfielder Cam Ellis-Yolmen (knee). Adelaide’s All Australian midfielder Matt Crouch has set a club record for most disposals - he had 31 disposals against GWS for 757 overall, 20 more than Scott Thompson in 2012.

GIANTS LOSE CAMERON FOR REST OF AFL FINALS

G

WS have lost star forward Jeremy Cameron for the rest of the AFL finals series with his hamstring injury. He suffered the injury in Thursday night’s qualifying final loss to Adelaide and co-captain Callan Ward said on Monday that

Cameron will not be back, no matter how far they advance. It is another major blow for the Giants, who have struggled with injuries all season and face a knockout home semi-final this Saturday night against West Coast.
