Melbourne spends big on Christmas cheer

M

elbourne is digging deep into its Santa sack this silly season with a new virtual reality game and decorations to spread Christmas cheer across the city. With just over two months until St Nick’s sleigh touches down, City of Melbourne Council announced it will spend a record $5.4 million to light up Federation Square and city

laneways while also releasing a festive-themed mobile app. “The app will turn our famous sites into enchanted wonderlands and popular animated characters including Santa and the nutcracker soldier come to life right before (your) eyes,” Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said on Tuesday, adding the Santa’s Lil Helper game was for children and big kids alike.

GREENS MOVE TO BAN FUNDING FOR COAL POWER

T

Federal MP Adam Bandt on Monday introduced a private bill to parliament that prohibits the government or its agencies from financially supporting the technology but still allows the use of public money to manage the closure of stations and transition workers. “Investing in coal is about as sensible as investing in a company that builds fax machines and typewriters ... It should be illegal or unlawful to use public money in this way,” he said.

Kennett’s wife gets Vic cash for office V

ictorian taxpayers have paid Jeff Kennett’s wife more than $200,000 to rent him office space. The ex-premier confirmed reports in The Age on Monday that his wife Felicity Kennett owned the office space in Cremorne, and taxpayers had been chipping in for it since 2009. All former premiers are entitled to a taxpayer-funded office after they leave parliament, but most have premises within a government-owned building. “I get these entitlements, as each ex-premier does, the only difference is ... in 2000 the government asked me to leave the government-provided space,” Mr Kennett told ABC radio on Monday. “The people of Victoria and the people of Australia have got very good value from me since I’ve left office, because I continue to give a huge amount of my space to public service.” Mr Kennett said the property, which is on the edge of Richmond, was worth a lot more than what the government pays his wife. “My company tops up to make it, or get it close to, a commercial

But if you have a look at these values in Richmond or around inner-city, they’re quite substantial.” The outspoken former premier said the story was a plot to embarrass him as part of a dispute with the Electrical Trades Union. “I’m not embarrassed at all. I know I’m part of a campaign,” he said.

POLISH METAL BAND CHARGED WITH RAPE

M

embers of a Polish metal band have been charged with rape and kidnapping after accusations they gang raped a woman on their tour bus after performing in Washington. The Spokesman-Review reports that Waclaw Kieltyka and Michal Lysejko of the band Decapitated appeared in court on Friday where bail was set at $US100,000 ($A126,540) each, and both men were ordered to surrender their passports. All four members of the band were arrested in Los Angeles in September, accused of raping the fan who had attended their show on August 31. The other two are scheduled for a court hearing next week. In a statement posted on social media, the band says the allegations are false and that they are “confident that once the facts and evidence have been seen and heard, they will be released and able to return home”.

The train that took Harry Potter to school was played onscreen by the Jacobite steam train, which runs on a remote and scenic route through the Scottish Highlands. On Friday, it made an unscheduled stop to pick up a family of six that was stranded

Faced with walking several miles over boggy ground to get back to the family car, Cluett called police to see if any form of rescue was available.

Chris Gayle denies exposure reports W

est Indies cricket star Chris Gayle has denied exposing his genitals to a massage therapist, telling a Sydney jury such conduct deserved to be punished. Gayle’s barrister, Bruce McClintock SC, on Monday said Fairfax Media had set out to “destroy” the cricket great in a “vicious, savage and false attack” published in three of its newspapers from January 2016.

In his opening address to the jury in the NSW Supreme Court, Mr McClintock said Gayle had taken defamation action against Fairfax “to prove to you and the whole world what the defendant said was false and was a lie”. Gayle is suing over articles which he says falsely claimed he intentionally exposed his genitals to a female massage therapist and indecently propositioned her in the West Indies dressing room

FOUND IN MEXICO

BRISBANE TRAFFIC T A

large group of scooter riders organised via social media was anything but social for Brisbane drivers and police. Police were called in on Sunday afternoon when the group started weaving in and out of traffic and going down

the wrong side of the road as they pushed their way from The Valley and city to Kangaroo Point. Police, who weren’t told of the event, arrested a number scooter riders and were liaising with parents who were called to pick up their children.

abor has accused the man responsible for the government’s new energy plan of angling for the Liberal leadership at the expense of his portfolio. Backbencher Pat Conroy fronted reporters in Canberra on Monday, brandishing a Fairfax Media profile, to label Josh Frydenberg a selfconfessed “media tart, tennis obsessive and Robert Menzies fan boy”. “What is clear is he is trailing his CV all around parliament at the moment, in case Malcolm gets to make it to 30 in terms of losing polls and he’s ready to step up and compete with Peter Dutton for the prime ministership,” the MP said.

he dismembered bodies of four men and one woman have been found in Mexico, with a pile of arms left in the front seat of one car and a severed head left on the bonnet of another. Prosecutors on the outskirts of Mexico City say they are investigating threats written on a sign that was left with the bodies. The prosecutors’ office in the State of Mexico, which surrounds

the capital, said the bodies were found in the two cars on Wednesday. The office did not disclose the contents of the message, but said the killings may have involved a dispute between gangs. Photos published in local media indicated the sign blamed those killed for extorting money from bus drivers and killing drivers.

EX-MASTERCHEF CONTESTANT

COOKS UP A WIN

F

ormer MasterChef contestant Kylie Millar has claimed one of the country’s most prestigious awards for young chefs. Working in the pastry and sauce section at award-winning Melbourne restaurant Attica, Millar has been named the Good Food Guide’s Josephine Pignolet young chef of the year. Awarded to the brightest chef in the country aged under 30, past winners include MasterChef judge George Calombaris (2004) and Lauren Eldridge (2016). Previously awarded by state, Millar, a former physiotherapy student, is the first national winner. She finished sixth in the 2012 season of MasterChef and has since worked at dessert hotspot Burch & Purchese and famed Spanish restaurant Mugaritz. The award is named for Josephine Pignolet, a former chef and wife of acclaimed chef Damien Pignolet, who was killed in a car crash in 1987.

LABOR HAMMERS BISHOP OVER EXPENSES

L

abor has queried $1.2 million in expenses claimed by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop including a trip to the Sydney premiere of the new DisneyMarvel movie, Thor: Ragnarok. Labor senator Kimberley Kitching told a Senate committee on Monday the minister had spent the $1.2 million in a “variety of ways”, including attending a polo match and the movie premiere. But she was cut short when attempting to spell out the full list of spending. She asked Attorney-General George Brandis whether the spending met the ministerial standards code, which called for frontbenchers to “refrain from wasteful and extravagant spend of public money”. Senator Brandis said Ms Bishop was “one of the most experienced and most respected ministers in the Australian

government”. “(She) is well aware of the standards and is always observant of them,” Senator Brandis said. Thor: Ragnarok was primarily filmed in Queensland, featuring Melbourneborn actor Chris Hemsworth. At the movie premiere, Ms Bishop was quoted as saying: “It does add a great deal to the Australian economy and it will raise our profile overseas as a sophisticated, creative nation.” Senator Brandis said he was not aware of the date or nature of the event. “It may be the case that she attended this particular event in the role she assumed as foreign minister in advocating Australia’s interests including ... the promotion, particularly in the United States, of the Australian cinema and film industry,” he said. “I know her advocating of the Australian film industry was greatly appreciated by the industry and very effective.”

arrie Fisher sent a cow’s tongue to an Oscarwinning producer who assaulted her friend, it has been revealed. Heather Ross, who works in the film and TV industry, praised the late Star Wars actress for being “protective” and a “mother figure” to her. Ross, who is not an actress, spoke about her experience of being harassed by an unidentified film producer in response to the ongoing Harvey Weinstein scandal. A number of actresses have alleged that Weinstein sexually harassed them. Ross told a US radio station of her ordeal, explaining that she met with the “high-profile, Oscarwinning producer” to discuss a project on which he was working. She said that he picked her up in his car and that they were going to go out to eat, but then he flipped her seat back and “all of a sudden he was on top of me”.

NBN boss fears new mobile networks

N

ational broadband network chief Bill Morrow believes his company may struggle to compete with mobile networks as new concerns over costs and connection wait times emerge. Increasing competition from ultrafast mobile networks will stop the NBN from turning a profit, Mr Morrow says. He told Fairfax Media low-cost city connections are subsidising the more difficult-to-wire homes, but margins will be squeezed if city customers turn to mobile networks for their internet connections. Mr Morrow’s comments come in the lead up to an investigation into the government-run network by the ABC’s Four Corners program, due to air on Monday. He admitted there was long wait to be connected but said

NBN Co was working with the service providers to sort out problems faster. “We’ll get everybody connected by 2020,” Mr Morrow told the ABC. Data has revealed the most expensive fibre-to-the-premises connections, with a remote residential property and bowling club in Tasmania topping the charts at a whopping $91,196 and $86,533 respectively. Four of the five dearest FTTP installations were in the Apple Isle, while a business in the Victorian regional centre of Ballarat also topped $50,000. The majority of homes are now

being connected to fibre-to-the-node after the coalition government switched to using existing technology after being elected in 2013. The NBN has also activated a trial of fibre-tothe-curb technology, which takes cable to telecom pits outside premises, which is closer than fibre-to-the-node and cheaper and less complex than FTTP. NBN Co expects to serve an initial one million premises with FTTC and estimates the technology will cost about $2900 per premises to deliver compared to $4400 for FTTP. The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman’s annual report released last week showed NBN complaints, including those about delayed connections, soared from 10,487 to 27,195.

AUSSIES EAGER FOR FITNESS, BEAUTY JOBS

F

itness instructors, beauty therapists and baristas have become the hottest jobs in Australia, but our working week has been trimmed a bit and we still don’t really like taking public transport to get to the office. They’re the major findings from the latest data released from the 2016 census, which also found Aussies are better qualified than ever before. Perhaps spurred by the popularity of the #fitspo and #beautytips social media culture, there’s been a 27 per cent leap in fitness instructors and a 25 per cent rise in beauty therapists since 2011. The number of baristas and bar attendants has also jumped by nearly a fifth. Their boom in popularity is part of a broader rise in the number of personal service and community workers, whose jobs also include patient care, aged care, child care. The health care and social assistance industry remains the biggest employer across the country, followed by retail trade, with sales assistant the most common occupation. However our average working week is now 34.6 hours, down from 35.1 hours in 2011. Women are working an average 30 hours in paid employment, while for men it’s 39 hours. But the numbers tell a

different tale for work at home. In 2016, over half of employed men did no or fewer than five hours per week of unpaid domestic work (60 per cent) compared with a third of employed women (36 per cent). Women in full-time work were also twice as likely to do at least 15 hours of domestic work. The data also showed that Australians are upskilling like never before as they gain post-school qualifications in record numbers. More than half the population aged 15 and over now holds a post-school qualification, up from 46 per cent in 2006. Close to a quarter of people have completed a bachelor degree or above. “Those who go on to study at university aren’t necessarily stopping with just a bachelor degree, with more people than ever achieving postgraduate qualifications,” Australian Bureau of Statistics’ census program manager Bindi Kindermann said. The most common occupations for men with a bachelor degree or above were accountants and software programmers, while women were more likely to be nurses or primary school teachers. When it comes to getting to work, most Australians still prefer to drive than take public transport. More than two thirds of people drive to work (6.5 million), while nine per cent solely rely on public transport, much thte same as in 2011.

NBN COSTS MUST NOT HIT USERS: XENOPHON

I

ndependent senator Nick Xenophon wants the federal government to rule out slugging mobile broadband users with a levy to shore up the competitiveness of the national broadband network. NBN Co chief Bill Morrow has conceded a levy would be unpopular, but said the government could either regulate to protect the current model or shell out more money to ensure the network can compete with ultrafast mobile broadband. “There’s now all this crazy talk of hitting millions of Australian consumers who use mobile broadband with some form of levy. That needs to be ruled out by the government ASAP,” Senator Xenophon told reporters in Canberra on Monday.

COWAN’S ATTACKER JAILED FOR 3 YEARS

A

Queensland prisoner who scalded schoolboy Daniel Morcombe’s killer with a bucket of boiling water has been sentenced to three years’ jail. Adam Paul Davidson, 31, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane District Court on Monday to torturing Brett Peter Cowan at the Wolston Correctional Centre on August 5, 2016. Judge Ian Dearden sentenced Davidson to three years’ jail but with time already served he will be released on parole in late November. The court heard Davidson plotted and watched Cowan’s movements for a month to find the best way to harm the highprofile sex offender. Prosecutor Mark Whitbread said Davidson got the idea to use boiling water after he saw another inmate with horrific scars and wearing a burn suit after a similar attack.

Sad end to Australia’s auto industry

Holden FJ Ute

I

n 1948, when the first locally-built Holden rolled off the production line, Prime Minister Ben Chifley declared “she’s a beauty”. Fifty years later, in 1998, then prime minister John Howard echoed those words and described Holden as a remarkable company which had touched the lives of so many Australians. But sadly, she’s a beauty no more. Holden recently brought an end to local car assembly, closing the final chapter on the nation’s auto manufacturing industry. Ford closed its manufacturing operations in Victoria last year and Toyota followed suit earlier this month. Nissan and Mitsubishi suffered the same fate a number of years ago. But none are likely to have the same impact on the nation’s psyche as Holden, so long the dominant force in Australia’s automotive landscape. It famously started production of “Australia’s own car” in the post-war era with the launch 48-215, later known as the FX, in 1948. Far better engineered to handle local conditions, it was an instant hit with buyers and by the time it was replaced by the FJ in 1953, Holden had sold more than 120,000. The FJ was an even bigger success, with the company building almost 170,000, including 2500 that were shipped overseas, kick-starting an export program. The company dominated the Australian car market throughout the 1950s and by 1958 a staggering 50 per cent of all registrations were Holdens. Its workforce also swelled to

almost 19,000, more than double the number it had employed 10 years earlier, before peaking at almost 24,000 in 1964. Throughout the 1960s, Holden continued to lead the sales charge, but the competition was increasing from the likes of Ford, Chrysler and the first wave of Japanese cars. The company released a steady stream of new models including the first Monaro coupe, which earned it a legion of new fans. That year Bruce McPhee and Barry Mulholland successfully drove a V8 GTS Monaro to victory in the Hardie-Ferodo 500, giving Holden its first Bathurst crown and setting off a rivalry with Ford that continues to endure. In the 1970s, Holden introduced the HQ, which ultimately became the company’s biggest selling model of all time with more than 485,000 vehicles produced, including 85,000 shipped overseas. During the 70s, Holden introduced Australia to probably its most famous advertising jingle, with its “football, meat pies, kangaroos and Holden cars” campaign adapted from a similar tune used by Chevrolet in the US. And the decade was also marked by the introduction of the first Commodore, the VB, which was a major change of direction for the company, with its body adapted from a German design and fitted with a local engine. With the Commodore, the midsized Torana and Sunbird models and the Gemini small car, Holden had a range of vehicles that maintained its market-leading status. Things were not so good in the

1980s. Hit by the oil shock, sales of six-cylinder cars took a dive. One of Holden’s responses, the four-cylinder Camira, started well, but ultimately failed in the market with buyers unhappy with its lack of power and build quality. In 1986, Holden introduced the VL Commodore, which featured a six-cylinder Nissan engine and transmission, the result of the introduction of unleaded petrol, with the Japanese product considered a better option than modifying the existing powerplant. This led to the closure of the Woodville transmission plant in Adelaide, with Holden’s operations in South Australia consolidated at the Elizabeth assembly facility. The 1980s were also the time of the Button car plan designed to revive Australia’s auto industry by encouraging car makers to produce higher volumes of fewer models by sharing those models and also by seeking out more export sales. Holden inked deals firstly with Nissan and later with Toyota, only to dissolve the arrangements by 1996 due to disappointing sales. Over the next two decades, Holden’s local production centred on its Commodore range, though it also reintroduced the new Monaro in 2001 and built versions of the Vectra for a short period. In 2003, it lost market leadership to Toyota and from 2005 began introducing Korean-built Daewoo cars to its local range. With government funding, it moved to localise production of the Cruze from 2011. While demand was steady, it never reached the numbers the company would have liked. Its business in Australia since then has been hit hard by high production costs and a shrinking market for locally-built vehicles. Those problems culminated in its decision to end local production. At its 50th anniversary celebrations in 1998, then Victorian premier Jeff Kennett said Holden had played a major role in the aspirations and dreams of all Australians. “They will continue to do so as we Australians move forward into the new millennium,” he said. That might not now be the case.

‘I KNEW ENOUGH,’ TARANTINO <<ON from WEINSTEIN cont.cover...

Actress Rose McGowan “I knew enough to do more than I did,” he told the newspaper that published the bombshell investigation against Weinstein. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard,” he added. “If I had done the work I should have done then, I would have had to not work with him.” The Pulp Fiction director, 54, said he “knew he did a couple of these things”, adding that it was “impossible” anyone close to Weinstein did not. The report stated that among the cases Tarantino was aware of, was actress Rose McGowan reaching a settlement with the producer. Tarantino, who has worked with Weinstein on films ranging from 1992’s Reservoir Dogs to 2009’s Inglourious Basterds, called for Hollywood to stop tolerating despicable actions by men. “We allowed it to exist because that’s the way it was,” he said. The interview was published as another woman came forward to accuse Weinstein, with the Los Angeles Police Department saying it was investigating a report of sexual assault in 2013. In the UK, the Metropolitan Police is investigating five allegations against him, spanning from the late 1980s to 2015. Weinstein, 65, meteorically fell from grace after the claims were made public and has had ties severed with his own firm, The Weinstein Company. He has “unequivocally denied” allegations of nonconsensual sex through his spokeswoman.

Digital age a major glitch for teen sleep

I

t’s the digital age but it may be time for teens to wind back the clock to get the 9.3 hours of shut eye they need everyt night for the sake of their physical and mental wellbeing. New research shows more teens than ever aren’t getting enough sleep and too often their phones and tablets are to blame. A US study of more than 360,000 teens, led by San Diego State University Professor of Psychology Jean Twenge, found one in four adolescents in 2015 slept less than seven hours a night. The analysis of two longrunning government funded surveys suggests this is 58 per cent more than in 1991 and 17 per cent more than in 2009. The data also showed the more time young people spent online, the less sleep they got. Teens who spent five hours a day online were 50 per cent more likely to not sleep enough than their peers who only spent an hour online each day. “Teens’ sleep began to shorten just as the majority started using smartphones,” Prof Twenge said. “It’s a very

suspicious pattern.” Pediatricians have increasingly become concerned about the impact of excessive night time technology use on sleep. One of those concerned is Dr Arthur Teng, head of the Sleep Medicine unit at Sydney Children’s Hospital in Sydney. “There is an epidemic of media activity in the night which is suppressing melatonin secretion and we are just scratching the surface as to what the consequences will be years down the track; all these teenagers chronically sleep deprived,” Dr Teng said. Melatonin is the body’s natural sleep pill - secreted deep in the brain when the eye detects the change from light to dark. “Teenagers need exactly 9.3 hours of sleep overnight, not the seven, eight that you adults need; and that is seldom reached in most teenagers,” he said. “And of course if they do have ADHD it can only makes things worse,” Dr Teng warned. For many, smartphones and

CHURCHILL’S HALF-SMOKED

CIGAR AUCTIONED W

ashington What do you get the man who has everything? One wealthy buyer might have the answer after he bought a halfsmoked cigar at auction for $US12,000 ($A15,185) that was once graced by the lips of Sir Winston Churchill. The wartime British prime minister smoked the cigar on May 11, 1947, at Le Bourget Airport in Paris, the US auction house RR Auction said in a

statement released on Friday. The little piece of history, measuring 10 centimetres and

with a red-and-gold band at the end bearing Churchill’s name, was kept by Corporal William Alan Turner, who was a member of the cabin crew on the flight that day. “He stubbed out his cigar in an ashtray when he came aboard, and I took the remains into protective custody,” reads a handwritten note on the back of a picture accompanying the cigar, which was written by Turner, according to the statement. The picture shows Churchill boarding the plane, cigar in hand. The stump was auctioned online on

tablets are an indispensable part of everyday life, so they key is moderation, says Prof Twenge. “Given the importance of sleep for both physical and mental health, both teens and adults should consider whether their smartphone use is interfering with their sleep,” she says. “It’s particularly important not to use screen devices right before bed, as they might interfere with falling asleep.” To achieve this it means turning back the years, Dr Teng says. “I always tell my patients its like going back to the 19th century; candle lit suppers, dim lighting. If you need to read a chapter of a history book do it in the evening, if you need to type up your assignment on the computer do it when the sun is still up,” he said. Wednesday by a collector in Florida. The cigar was described by the auction house as “an integral component of Churchill’s public image” and “a truly delightful relic of history”.

VICTORIAN COMMUTERS TOLD ‘DON’T GROPE’

I

t seems obvious - keep your hands to yourself on public transport and don’t grope others. But Victorian authorities have had to join forces to launch a “Hands Off” campaign to stamp out sexual offending on public transport. Images of alleged offenders will be released over the next two weeks in a bid to identify and charge them. “If your image is released, we urge you to make yourself known to police and we will assist you to access rehabilitative services should you wish,” Inspector Karl Curran said on Monday. “It’s only a matter of time before the community tells us where you are and we come to you.” Public Transport Victoria chief executive Jeroen Weimar said the vast majority of Victoria’s 590 million journeys each year were safe, but sexual offending will not be tolerated. “We have CCTV cameras operating across the network to keep our passengers safe,” he said. There are about 9000 CCTV cameras at metropolitan rail stations, and cameras on every station platform and train carriage, with Metro monitoring station CCTV 24-hours a day. Crime Stoppers Victoria general manager Cathy Rhodes reminded people that anonymous calls to report crimes weren’t traced and there is no caller ID or IP tracing.

A

fleet of electric cars is now ready to chauffeur passengers around Adelaide. myCar founder Mark Harrington says the cars will use charging stations across the city and passengers can choose between chauffeur-driven luxury Mercedes S500 PHEV, Tesla X and S electric cars as well as Lexus hybrid vehicles. “The availability of these cars will help demonstrate the functionality of electric cars to those corporate decision makers looking to upgrade their fleet to low-emissions vehicles,” he said on Monday. Hotels across the city have already signed up for the service with the Stamford hotels installing charging pods. Reducing emissions from transport will help Adelaide in its quest to become a carbon neutral city, Environment Minister Ian Hunter said. “Consumers are starting to demand more sustainable, lowcarbon products and services,” he said. “I expect hotel guests, tourists and even those needing a car for a short-distance commute will appreciate the option.”

ingle-use plastic bags commonly found at supermarket checkouts will be banned in Victoria from 2018, with retailers cautiously backing the move. The ban will come into place after a three-month consultation process with consumers and industry, Environment Minister Lily D’Ambrosio told reporters on Wednesday. “In the first half of next year we will have a design scheme for the ban and a commencement date,” she said. But while checkout bags will be banned, lighter-weight bags used for fruit and vegetable packaging will still be available. Heavier plastic bags favoured by many clothing retailers won’t be included either. “Lightweight, singleuse plastic bags have a disproportionate impact on our environment,” Ms D’Ambrosio said. NSW is now the only state

in Australia that has not announced a plan to limit the spread of supermarket plastic bags. The Victorian Greens - who already have a bill in state parliament to ban plastic bags, microbeads and some plastic packaging - said the government’s plan didn’t go far enough. “If the government were committed to addressing plastic pollution they would be voting for our bill,” Greens MP Nina Springle said. “Single-use plastic bags are just the tip of the iceberg.” Opposition Leader Matthew Guy labelled the announcement “panicked” and “bizarre”. “The idea is certainly worthy, but it’s been announced without any detail,” he said. Retailers have shown support for the move but want to ensure consumers are aware of the changes. “As retailers are already under a lot of strain, we will work with the government in developing

practical solutions on this plastic bag ban to ensure there will not be additional costs,” Australian Retailers Association director Russell Zimmerman said. Independent retailers have cautiously backed the move as it could save businesses money. “I’ll be very interested to see how the consumers respond and whether they back this plan,” MGA Independent Retailers chief executive Jos de Bruin said. The retailing body represents independent grocers such as IGA and liquor stores in Victoria. A previous Labor government, led by premier Steve Bracks, unsuccessfully proposed a ban on free plastic bags in 2006, forcing shoppers to pay 10 cents for the single-use bags.

avid Attenborough has urged the world to cut down on the use of plastic by “tomorrow” to curb the danger it poses to the world’s oceans. The much-loved TV nature expert told how filming the second Blue Planet series showed him the threat that plastic causes to the underwater environment. His comments came as he attended a Q&A about the show ahead of its broadcast on the BBC later this month, 15 years after the original series. Asked what concerned him the most about the crew’s findings, the 91-year old said rising sea temperatures and plastic in the ocean. “Now what we’re going to do about 1.5 degrees rise in the temperature of the ocean over the next 10 years, I don’t know, but we could actually do something about plastic right now. And I just wish we would,” he said on Saturday. “The albatross parent has been away for three weeks gathering stuff for her young and what

comes out? What does she give her chick? You think it’s going to be squid, but it’s plastic. And the chick is going to starve and die. “But we could do things about plastic internationally tomorrow. We have a responsibility. Every one of us.” “It is one world. And it’s in our care. For the first time in the history of humanity, for the first time in 500 million years, one species has the future in the palm of its hands. I just hope he realises that that is the case.” The program was filmed all over the world, in locations such as Australia, South Africa, Egypt, Mexico, Japan and Norway.

LEAD T POISONING

SHARK ATTACK ‘SPINECHILLING he screams of his teenage daughter were “spinechilling” as she was thrown into the air by a great white shark in an attack like something out of Jaws, a South Australian man says. Sarah Williams, 15, was kayaking with her family off the coast near Normanville, south of Adelaide, recently when the shark struck. Chris Williams says he and his son managed to pull her into their small aluminium tinny, dragging her over the back of the four-to-five-metre thrashing white pointer. He says if the rescue had taken 10 seconds longer she would be dead and has since called for the shark to be hunted and destroyed before it kills someone. “The shark has just hit her from underneath the kayak and has launched her and the kayak into the air,” Mr Williams told ABC radio. “Then she’s clambered back onto the kayak and the shark is just thrashing around. There’s just all whitewater and fins.” The teenager said the attack was “everything you picture in the

Mr Williams said it was fortunate his boat’s motor started the first time and he and his son were able to reach Sarah quickly. “The enormity of what could have happened is the thing that’s haunting us now,” he said. “The difference between my daughter being alive and not being with me today is 10 seconds.” “It’s something I don’t ever want to experience again. To hear the spine-chilling screams from your daughter is just indescribable.” Once in the boat, Sarah said she was actually quite calm. Her kayak had become entangled in fishing lines so was being dragged along by her father’s boat with the shark circling around it. Mr Williams said that gave his wife and another daughter, who were paddling in a second kayak,

time to reach the shore safely. The family won’t be returning to the area to kayak but Mr Williams asked for the shark to be culled, describing its attack as “ferocious”. Premier Jay Weatherill said the question of a cull was a complex one and the government would take advice from experts on the issue. “We need to make sure that any response we have is an effective one and not a kneejerk response,” he said. Marine authorities said the number of shark sightings in SA waters this year was about normal. Aerial shark patrols along the Adelaide coast began last weekend and will continue over summer.

Terrified Packer had $5b of debt: report

O

ne of Australia’s richest men, James Packer, has reportedly revealed he once had more than $5 billion of debt in his two biggest companies. The gaming tycoon held more than $3 billion of debt at Crown and $2.3 billion of debt in his private company Consolidated Press Holdings two years ago. “I was terrified,” Mr Packer said in a story by the Weekend Australian.

“Then a year later I’ve got China falling apart, the Australian casino businesses missing budgets by big amounts, I’ve got Mariah breaking up with me and I’m thinking ‘f...’.” In October 2016, Crown casino staff were arrested in China - the same month that Packer broke off his engagement with US singersongwriter Mariah Carey. Mr Packer’s explanation for his split with Carey was simple - it’s complicated.

“I was at a low point in my personal life,” Mr Packer said. “She was kind, exciting and fun. Maria is a woman of substance. She is very bright. But it was a mistake for her and a mistake for me.” Mr Packer has returned to Australia for the first time in two years to attend the annual general meeting of his company Crown Resorts in Melbourne next week.

Jan 2016 - Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is made to face the press as he’s escorted to a helicopter in handcuffs by soldiers in Mexico City. Guzman’s second prison escape in 2015 from a top security prison though a tunnel had embarrassed President Enrique Pena Nieto and made his capture a national priority.

Mark Fabiani, a spokesman for Penn, said the documentary has “sought to create this profoundly false, foolish, and reckless narrative”. “The notion that Mr Penn or anyone on his behalf alerted Department of Justice to the trip is a complete fabrication and bald-faced lie. It never happened, nor would there have been any reason for it to have happened,” he added. The spokesman refuted reports that Penn tried to “block” the documentary but instead said he has tried and failed to get the filmmakers to alter that point. According to The New York Times, Netflix said Penn turned down “multiple” opportunities to participate in the documentary. Guzman, 60, has denied that his drug cartel laundered billions of dollars and carried out a bloody campaign of kidnaps and murders.

uawei has unveiled its new line-up of artificial intelligence-powered smartphones designed to take on Samsung and Apple. The Chinese manufacturer has announced the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, both of which house the company’s new Kirin 970 processor chip, which Huawei says is the first ever to include a neural network processing unit (NPU), enabling the phone to think and learn. Apple introduced its own AI-powered processor - the A11 Bionic - alongside the iPhone

New X-ray tech cuts radiation

S

amsung Advanced Institute of Technology, a research body under Samsung Electronics, says it has developed a new technology for X-ray machines that can cut radiation exposure by 90 %. Researchers from Samsung and Sungkyunkwan University made the breakthrough by adopting perovskite, a chemical compound, which helps to cut production costs while also improving detectors’ sensitivity. Samsung said that as the new X-ray system comes with better sensitivity, it is capable of collecting data while exposing patients to less radiation. The commercialisation of the technology will also pave the way for the creation of X-ray devices that can scan full bodies. “If we overcome the remaining technological hurdles,” Samsung said, “it could lead to advances in X-ray medical imaging technology that cuts radiation exposure to one tenth that of existing machines.”

8 and upcoming iPhone X last month, while Samsung and other Android smartphones now support virtual assistants designed to understand and respond to voice commands. The flagship Mate 10 Pro also features a six-inch OLED display, dual rear cameras designed in collaboration with imaging firm Leica, and will run the latest version of the Android operating system, 8.0 Oreo. “As we enter the age of intelligence, AI is no longer a virtual concept but something that intertwines with our daily

life,” Huawei chief executive Richard Yu said. “AI can enhance the user experience; provide valuable services and improve product performance. The Huawei Mate 10 Series introduces the first mobile AI-specific Neural Network Processing Unit, launching a new era of intelligent smartphones.” The AI built into the phone will learn user habits and learn which apps are used the most Huawei says, as well as recognise objects in photos and automatically edit images to improve them.

The Chinese manufacturer says its AI processor will deliver up to 25 times more performance and 50 times more energy efficiency because of the intelligence of the Kirin chip. Smartphone expert Ernest Doku from uSwitch.com said Huawei’s new line-up now made it a “serious contender” to challenge Samsung and Apple.

NETFLIX TO RELEASE 80 ORIGINAL FILMS

Netflix added 850,000 streaming subscribers in the US and 4.45 million overseas in the period, which was above expectations. “We added a Q3-record 5.3 million memberships globally (up 49 per cent year-over-year) as we continued to benefit from strong appetite for our original series and films, as well as the adoption of internet entertainment across the world,” the company said. Netflix posted revenue of $US2.98 billion ($A3.79 billion) and earnings per share of 29 cents for the period. Wall Street had expected Netflix to report Q3 revenue of $US2.97 billion and EPS of 32 cents.

Will Smith in a scene from "Bright." Netflix is due to release a host of new films including Bright - an action police thriller directed by David Ayer with a reported production price tag of $US90 million ($A115 million) debuting worldwide on Netflix on December 22. Sarandos also cited as a forthcoming big-budget picture Martin Scorsese’s gangster movie “The Irishman,” starring Robert DeNiro, slated to be released on Netflix in early 2019. “I think people will start seeing the potential for this original movie initiative, that it could be done on the enormous scale

we have on the television side,” Sarandos said referring to the release of Bright. Netflix released eight original films in Q3. Those included “Death Note,” based on the popular Japanese manga series; “Naked,” a romantic comedy featuring Marlon Wayans; and anorexia drama “To the Bone” starring Lily Collins. Hastings also said Netflix won’t be buying the Weinstein Company, which has been devastated by the revelations surrounding Harvey Weinstein’s sexual harassment and assault of women over several decades.

CHINA SETS 2019 DEADLINE FOR GREEN-CARS

C

hina has set a deadline of 2019 to impose tough new sales targets for electric plug-in and hybrids vehicles, slightly relaxing an earlier plan to launch the rules from next year that had left global automakers worried about being able to comply. Car makers will need to amass credits for so-called new-energy vehicles (NEVs) equivalent to 10 per cent of annual sales by 2019, China’s industry ministry said in a statement. That level would rise to 12 per cent for 2020.

A single vehicle can generate multiple credits meaning the proportion by NEVs by volume would likely be lower. The targets, announced by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), closely mirror previously announced plans, but remove an explicit 8 per cent quota for 2018, in effect giving carmakers an extra year grace period. The quotas are a key part of a drive by China, the world’s largest auto market, to develop its own NEV market, with a long-term

aim to ban the production and sale of cars that use traditional fuels announced earlier this month. Global automotive manufacturers, however, had urged a softening of the proposals for all-electric battery vehicles and electric plug-in hybrids. Under the rules, car makers will receive credits for new-energy vehicles including plug-in hybrids and fully electric cars that can be transferred or traded. Firms with annual sales volumes above 30,000 units will need to comply with the targets.

These credits - which will vary depending on the range and performance of the vehicle - will be used to calculate if firms have met their quota, a system which would likely mean the actual proportion NEVs made up of total sales was lower. “The rules could result in the production of more than one million EVs annually in China by 2020, or about 4 per cent of sales,” Simon Mui, a transport and energy exert at the US-based Natural Resources Defense Council wrote in note.

INVENTOR DYSON AIMS FOR ELECTRIC CAR Mitsubishi contributes to Adelaide’s

J

ames Dyson, the billionaire British inventor of the bagless vacuum cleaner, said recently his company was working on developing an electric car to be launched by 2020. Dyson said he was spending $US2.7 billion to exploit his company’s expertise in solid-state battery technology and electric motors. “Battery technology is very important to Dyson ... I have been developing these technologies consistently because I could see that one day we could do a car,” Dyson said. Dyson said a 400-strong team of engineers had already spent 2-1/2 years working on the hitherto secret car project. However, the car itself still has to be designed and the choice of battery to be finalised. The company was backing solid-state rather than the lithium ion technology used in existing

electric vehicles because it was safer, the batteries would not overheat, were quicker to charge and potentially more powerful, he said. Dyson said his ambition to go it alone was driven by the car industry’s dismissal of an idea he had of applying his cyclonic technology that revolutionised vacuum cleaners to handle diesel emissions in car exhaust systems in the 1990s. “We are not a johnny-comelately onto the scene of electric cars,” he said. “It has been my ambition since 1998 when I was rejected by the industry, which has happily gone on making polluting diesel engines, and governments have gone on allowing it.” But the car does not yet have a design nor a chassis, he said, and the company had not yet decided where it will be made, beyond ruling out working with the big car companies. “Wherever we make the battery, we’ll make the car, that’s logical,” he said. “So we want to be near our suppliers, we want to be in a place that welcomes us and is friendly to us, and where it is logistically most sensible. “And we see a very large market for this car in the Far East.” Dyson gave no details of the concept for the vehicle, beyond saying it would not be like anything else already on the market. “There’s no point in doing one that looks like everyone else’s,” he said, adding that it would not be a sports car and it would not be “a very cheap” car.

electric vehicle fast-charging hub

M

itsubishi Motors Australia joined the City of Adelaide and Government of South Australia to open a new fast direct current (DC) Electric Vehicle Charging Hub in Adelaide CBD recently. In a first of its kind in South Australia, the new facility based at Adelaide’s Central Market Precinct is now home to eight fast-charging stations, with an additional 11 more expected to be installed in the area by the end of October. The DC charging stations offer charging rates that are five to six times faster than conventional home charging – Australia’s no. 1 selling EV, Outlander PHEV can charge to 80% capacity in 30 minutes. Mitsubishi Motors Australia’s CEO, John Signoriello attended the announcement, and has welcomed the commitment by Carbon Neutral Adelaide to

deliver a public charging hub for South Australian electric vehicle owners. “Mitsubishi has provided a fast charger at no-cost to the State as part of our commitment to supporting a public charging network for all electric vehicle users, we believe electric vehicle technology should be made available to the wider community, not just for luxury car owners,” said Mr Signoriello. Our fast charger is compatible with a wide range of makes and models of electric vehicles which is an important factor in helping to building an equitable electric vehicle market in Australia.” The Adelaide Central Market charging hub is the latest instalment to South Australia’s growing EV charging network, with plans to install a further 25 EV charging stations in Adelaide’s CBD by mid-2018.

WhatsApp helps criminals evade the law B ritain says WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption communication services allows paedophiles and organised crime groups to operate beyond the reach of the law. After four militant attacks in Britain that killed 36 people this year, senior ministers have repeatedly demanded internet companies do more to suppress extremist content and allow access to encrypted communications. In the face of resistance from the industry, Prime Minister Theresa May - a former interior minister - proposed trying to regulate cyberspace after a deadly attack on London Bridge in June.

Such a sharp public reprimand for WhatsApp, which did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment, indicates frustration within the government. “We also know that end-toend encryption services like WhatsApp, are being used by paedophiles,” Home Secretary Amber Rudd told party activists in the northern English city of Manchester. “I do not accept it is right that companies should allow them and other criminals to operate beyond the reach of law enforcement,” Rudd said. “We must require the industry to move faster and more aggressively. They have the resources and there must be

greater urgency.” WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, and similar rival chat services let users communicate with pictures, video and text, using “end-to-end” encryption that can be read only with a key held on the user’s device. Without access to the devices, security services cannot read the messages. Rudd also called on technology giants such as Facebook , Google, Microsoft and Twitter to go further and faster to counter extremist material. The industry says it wants to help governments remove extremist or criminal material but also has to balance the demands of state security with the freedoms enshrined in democratic societies. Britain’s MI5 security service has said it needs access to encrypted communications to

foil attacks. In the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has pushed for full access to encrypted communications and devices but Congress has so far refused.

Roos, bikes a problem for driverless cars A ustralia is cruising higher in the world of driverless car technology, although kangaroos and cyclists are causing speed bumps for developers. With the technology predicted to be here by 2025, experts in autonomous cars gathered in Sydney this week to discuss the future of road transportation. Former US transport secretary Rodney Slater has joined key stakeholders including NRMA chairman Kyle Loades and managing partner John Poulsen of law company Squire Patton Boggs Australia. Slater says Australia could be at the forefront of driverless car technology, which would transform the way cities operate. He believes balancing innovation and safety is the key to ensuring that future is more like heaven than hell. “I would say Australia could be among those at the forefront,” Slater told AAP. Pointing to remote-controlled vehicles used in the nation’s mining industry, Slater said Australia was making significant strides towards automation. But Poulsen said the technology still had some way to go before it could cope with certain scenarios.

“One of the biggest problems with driverless vehicles at the moment is ... bicycles,” he told AAP. “The technology can’t recognise this very strange beast because one minute it’s riding along at 40 kilometres an hour then, suddenly, it slows down and the rider can walk.” For iMOVE managing director Ian Christensen, Australia is up with

driverless technology leaders North America and Europe. “In terms of preparing road network and evolving ways of extracting community benefit from this new technology Australia is right up the front of the pack,” Christensen told AAP, but then there’s the issues with

the national animal. With their ability to change direction suddenly and unpredictably, kangaroos are part of the driverless detection challenges. “Most likely the vehicles will take a precautionary approach so if they detect a roo or cyclist they most certainly will slow down and implement a steerclear strategy.” “Recently, I heard from a Tesla driver

transformation of cities and the way we move around them. “If a set of traffic lights in an intersection could see all the sets of vehicles coming, wouldn’t it be neat if the traffic lights could adjust its own traffic light cycles to optimise the flow of vehicles,” Christensen said. “If it can see you coming it might actually stay green for longer.” Christensen is referring to an interconnected network in which the infrastructure and driverless cars are in constant communication with each other. For Loades, the driverless future will be based on a subscription model such as Netflix, in which the majority of people share rides and don’t own that cars. the Tesla Naturally, road congestion detected would decline but it’s the the kangaroo potential drop in road accidents and slowed that dominates the debate. down before the On average, 1300 people die driver even saw it.” in road accidents in Australia, A research centre with about 94 per cent caused by dedicated to the future human error. of transport, iMOVE was “Drug-driving, speeding, recently awarded $55 million distractions while texting, all of from the federal government. that disappears with autonomous Christensen sees the future vehicles so road tolls will beyond autonomous cars, saying diminish greatly,” Loades told the technology will lead to a AAP.

ED SHEERAN TOUR IN DOUBT AFTER BIKE SMASH

S

inger Ed Sheeran says he’s “a bit bruised and broken” as he recovers from a bicycle accident that left him with a broken wrist, elbow and rib and led to the cancellation of shows on the Asia leg of his tour. Sheeran, 26, sported a full cast on one arm and a sling on the other arm as he walked down the red carpet at London’s Q Awards for music. “I am a bit bruised and broken but I am fine,” the singer told Reuters. “It was a bike accident and I broke my wrist, broke my elbow, broke a rib ... I’ll be alright though.” Sheeran added that the future of his Divide world tour was “up to (my) manager and agent”.

The singer said in an Instagram post this week that he suffered fractures to his wrist and elbow and that he was “unable to perform live concerts for the immediate future”. His injury forced the cancellation of tour dates in Taipei, Osaka, Seoul, Tokyo and Hong Kong so far. Sheeran went into Wednesday’s awards with three nominations and won the accolade for best act in the world today. The annual ceremony hosted by Britain’s Q magazine, celebrates musical talent.

The film was to be based on author Matthew Quick’s book Forgive Me Leonard Peacock. Quick also wrote Silver Linings Playbook, which The Weinstein Co developed into a film that would win star Jennifer Lawrence an Oscar. Tatum said now is a time to be reminded of the healing message of the book and says that this is an opportunity for real change. He called for an elimination of abuse from creative culture.

MARGOT ROBBIE’S DREAMLAND CASTS FINN COLE

A

nimal Kingdom actor Finn Cole and Vikings star Travis Fimmel are set to appear opposite Australia’s Margot Robbie in the indie film Dreamland. Darby Camp and Kerry Condon have also joined the cast. Miles Joris-Peyrafitte is directing. The film is set in the 1930s, amid the devastation of the Dust Bowl. The story follows a 17-year-old boy on his quest to capture a fugitive bank robber and collect the bounty on her head, in order to save his family farm from foreclosure. He beats out the FBI and the local police to find her, against all odds, only to discover that she’s far deadlier than the authorities expected. Production is currently underway. Cole is best known for his role on TNT’s Animal

Kingdom as J, the teenager who moves in with his relatives after his mom dies of an overdose, only to realise they are a group of thieves that pull off various heists. He also starred in Peaky Blinders. Fimmel recently wrapped his four-season run as Ragnar Lothbrok on History Channel’s hit series Vikings, and will next be seen in A24’s Andrew Haigh-directed Lean on Pete, which played at Venice, Telluride, and Toronto last month.

BEST AND WORST OF THE NRL FOOTY SHOW BEST:

RAY HADLEY V JOHN RIBOT (1995) - Super League boss John Ribot has since claimed he was ambushed on live TV but it made for compelling viewing. Ribot was booed by the crowd as Ray Hadley unloaded on him in defence of the ARL. ANDREW JOHNS’ DRUG ADMISSION (2007) - Johns’ admission to recreational drug use throughout his career after being caught with an ecstasy tablet in England was the show’s most serious moment. Phil Gould probed Paul Vautin

Johns on avoiding drug testers and his teammates’ knowledge of his use in an intense 20-minute interview. REG REAGAN - Matthew Johns’ impersonation of a controversial old-school footballer in the form of Reg Reagan has given rugby league one of its favourite alteregos, although he disappeared from the show with Johns in 2009.

WORST:

MAHATMA COTE (1997) - It’s hard to believe nowadays that a satirical Indian newsreader character even made it onto TV, but 20 years ago Mahatma Cote (portrayed by ex-cricketer Greg Ritchie) was one of the Footy

Show’s favourite skits. That was until Ritchie landed himself in trouble for allegedly racially abusing an Ansett Airlines employee, and eventually the gig was up. FATTY FALLS OUT OF A VAN (2005) - Vautin fell out of a van while filming a sketch for the show. Wearing a sumo suit, Vautin was knocked unconscious and suffered concussions after a severe head knock. MATTY’S CRONULLA SEX SCANDAL (2009) - Matty Johns appeared for one sombre final episode on the show hours after news broke that Four Corners would detail a Cronulla group sex session he was involved in during 2002.

ooty Show panellist Daryl Brohman has confirmed that both he and host Paul Vautin won’t be returning to the program after the Nine Network announced a restructure of the program. A new show in the same timeslot after Thursday night games will have a stronger rugby league focus and will be hosted by Erin Molan. “Fatty won’t be there, I won’t be there ... I think Erin will possibly host it, she’s very good at what she does,” Brohman told Macquarie Radio. “Personally I don’t see that if Fatty’s gone that they can call it The Footy Show. I think he has been The Footy Show. It’s been 24 years that he has hosted it.” Brohman said the fact that the show started later this year as it followed the network’s Thursday night match telecasts was a turn-off for some viewers. “That was probably the beginning of the end of The Footy Show. The fact Thursday night footy started ... the show wasn’t going on until just before 10pm. It’s very late,” he said. He also said he had been in touch with Vautin, describing him as very disappointed over the news. “I know he’s disappointed, I’ve seen the texts, he’s sent me a couple of texts,” Brohman said. It’s understood Nine’s Sunday Footy Show will remain unchanged, while the network will also introduce a football-focused Monday night show. The Footy Show has won 11 Logies since its debut in 1993. However the show took a hit when former panellist Matthew Johns was sacked in 2009 after it was revealed he was involved in a group sex session while playing for Cronulla, and ratings dipped to just 80,000 in some weeks this year.

Feeling stressed? Have some salt

S

tress. No one wants it, but we all experience it from time to time. Higher levels of stress can cause problems at work and at home. But stress is not just hard on your mental wellbeing; it is also hard on your body and can lead to many negative health outcomes. Stress levels can also increase significantly when economic times are tough. In England, the British Health and Social Care Information Centre found that stress had increased by 47 percent during that country’s recession and that stress was the single biggest cause of sickness in the UK, affecting 20 percent of the population. Professor Cary Cooper of Lancaster University, an expert on stress, was alarmed and told The Independent, “I have never seen figures like this before. Stress is a trigger mechanism for a whole range of conditions, from heart attacks to immune system disorders, mental illness and depression and anxiety.” Everyone is familiar with

comfort foods, but the key comfort foods that have been shown to actually reduce stress all contain salt. Stress is characterized in the human body by high levels of the hormone cortisol, referred to as the “stress hormone.” Scientific research has shown, in animals and in humans, that increased levels of salt consumption are effective in reducing levels of cortisol. Research from the University of Haifa, published in the science journal Appetite, confirmed the relationship between salt and stress in humans. Researchers found an inverse correlation between salt and depression/ stress, especially in women. Craving salty foods may very well be a biological defense mechanism we evolved to cope with daily stress. The researchers reviewed data from the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) using 10,000 individuals and demonstrated that depression and stress were higher in individuals

who consumed less salt, a trend more prevalent in women than men. They noted that the relationship of higher depression with lower salt intake in humans was consistent with the results of other animal studies. They also found that young people, up to the age of 19, selectively choose foods that are higher in salt, indicating a natural feedback mechanism driving them to consume higher salt foods and rewarding them with more vigorous growth. Other good stress-relieving tips include getting a good night’s sleep and taking time off to focus on relaxation and regular exercise, which has added health benefits. Of course, with exercise, another benefit of salt becomes apparent, as this vital nutrient is necessary to remain properly hydrated and healthy. When you sweat,

you lose not just water but also electrolytes (including sodium) which need to be replenished. The fact remains that whether they are called comfort foods or mood stabilizers, research indicates salty foods are effective at making us feel better and reducing our heightened stress levels, a common condition in today’s ever-changing world. So, the next time you finish a stressful day and want to wind down and relax, don’t be surprised if you instinctively reach for a salty snack.

Jamie Oliver’s Dream KitchenOn-The-Go

C

hef and TV personality Jamie Oliver and Jaguar Land Rover have created the ultimate kitchen on four wheels highlighting the versatility of a Land Rover Discovery. Jamie’s bespoke family SUV comes with a host of cooking features including a slowcooker, barbecue, ice cream maker, olive oil dispenser and will even churn butter as you drive. Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) worked with lifelong Land Rover fan and customer, Jamie, to bring his vision to life. The result is truly unique – it’s the only Discovery in the world that has a toaster in the centre console and a rotisserie driven by the power take off. Other ingenious features include a slowcooker that sits beside the engine, a pasta maker, a gas hob and a deployable dining table and worktop. There is even a herb garden and spice

rack in the rear windows. Jamie Oliver said: “I gave Land Rover a massive challenge to create the ultimate kitchen on wheels. I dreamt big and asked for a lot, and what they’ve done has blown my mind. I didn’t think they’d actually be able

With plenty of room for a custom-made aluminium sink, a flat screen TV and to push the boundaries of deployable kitchen worktop what was possible with this that also doubles as a dining versatile vehicle and the team table. Further touches include fully embraced the challenge. a spice drawer, a bespoke “Discovery helps our pestle and mortar and a Land customers make every day Rover barbecue. an adventure, and this special Jamie’s three-part-series vehicle will give Jamie and on his Food Tube channel his family the chance to cook will detail the build process amazing meals anywhere and show him cooking for they want to.

A ‘rainbow’ diet key to getting Vitamin C

F

or decades it’s been widely known that eating fresh fruit and vegetables is essential to prevent scurvy, a disease caused by a lack of Vitamin C. A mouse study published in journal Nature has now linked deficiency in Vitamin C to blood cancer, pushing the nutrient back into the spotlight. While true vitamin C deficiency is “exceedingly rare” in developed nations such as Australia, the study highlight the importance of a healthy balanced diet, says Associate Professor Steven Lane at QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute. “There is no suggestion from this article that supplementing chemotherapy or other treatments with vitamin C has any beneficial effect to individual patients with leukaemia,” said Prof Lane. “Rather, this work reinforces the general advice that a healthy, balanced diet containing the recommended intake of essential minerals and vitamins is the best way to keep your body functioning normally, and to recover after life changing diseases such as cancer,” he said. The human body does not make its own Vitamin C as opposed to most mammals and must be consumed through diet. Late last year, poor diets

was blamed for a scurvy “comeback” in Australia. Professor Jenny Gunton at Sydney’s Westmead Hospsital revealed several of her diabetes patients had been diagnosed with scurvy. Lisa Donaldson spokesperson for the Dietitians Association of Australia - says daily consumption of Vitamin C is very important. “The body won’t store or hold on to excess Vitamin C, won’t save it for later and the body will just wee it out,” Ms Donaldson explained. Apart from its potential anticancer properties, Vitamin C is a “powerful” antioxidant and has many other health benefits because, the accredited dietitian says. “It helps with the healing of cuts and wounds, it also keeps your gums, teeth and bones quite healthy, and does help with the formation of collagen (in the skin),” said Ms Donaldson.

And an orange is not the only way to boost intake. “There are a heap of other foods that are actually a lot higher in Vitamin C, foods like red capsicum, broccoli, chinese cabbage, brussels sprouts and cauliflower,” says Ms Donaldson. “Those vegetables have higher concentration per 100 grams than oranges,” she said.

Eating a colourful diet is the best way to ensure the diet has plenty of Vitamin C, the expert advises. “I often talk to my patients about having a rainbow on my plate,” she said. “Opting for fruits and vegetables as snacks is an easy way to boost intake, adding things like strawberries to your yoghurt or capsicum to a salad.”

What you need to know about Vitamin C • Most animals produce their own vitamin C but humans and other primates do not. • Is found widely in fruits and vegetables, in Australia some 40 per cent comes from vegetables and 19 per cent from fruits • Fruits containing Vitamin C include blackcurrants, guava, citrus, and kiwi fruit • Vegetables with Vitamin C include broccoli and brussels sprouts • The Australian bush food terminalia ferdinandiana is the richest source • Cutting, bruising, heating and exposure to copper,

iron or mildly alkaline conditions can destroy ascorbate • It can also be leached into water during cooking Recommended Daily Intake Children 1-8 yr 35 mg/day 9-18 yr 40 mg/day Adults 19-70 yr 45 mg/day The Top Five Foods High in Vitamin C 1) Guava 2) Blackcurrant 3) Red capsicum 4) Chilli powder 5) Orange peel

A seasoned live performer who has toured with the likes of The Basics, Lachlan Bryan & The Wildes, The Weeping Willows & more, 2017 marks a welcome return for Imrei to performing his original music and reconnecting with audiences in both intimate acoustic settings, as well as in venues and at festivals with his full band lineup. The album was recorded both at Salt Studios (East Brighton) and The Aviary (Abbotsford), and showcases a diversity of songwriting as well as many of Melbourne’s world-class musicians, including Leigh Fisher (Meg Mac), Ben Franz (The Waifs), Gretta Ray, Josh Bridges (Mustered Courage), Gus Agars (Marlon Williams), Brooke Russell & more. Since his debut, Imrei has performed around Victoria both solo acoustic and in a trio format, bringing a mix of unique blues and soul inspired cover versions and songs from his catalogue – including two independently released acoustic EP’s - to life onstage. In addition, he’s continued to pursue his long-standing passion for supporting local grassroots talent, organising regional showcase gigs, creating a hugely successful Open Mic Night at Side Street Lounge (Mordialloc) and hosting community radio programs on 88.3 Southern FM.

The Tiny Tea Garden

A

djacent to the Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve dwells a magical place called the Tiny Tea Garden. It’s the brainchild of Andy Kovacevic, who for the past three and a half years has been converting his backyard into an exquisite Zen meditation garden. Kovacevic, 42, is a qualified bonsai and topiary expert and for years ran his business, Andy Scissorhands, which specialized in hedges and specialist pruning. But more recently he has turned his hand to creating a masterpiece of tranquil natural beauty. Imagine listening to birdsong whilst walking slowly past tiny rivers and mini waterfalls, or gazing deeply into water lily ponds amidst the gentle croaking of frogs. Or taking a slow stroll through the citrus gully that boasts peach, pear, apple, plum, apricot, cherry and fig trees. Or you could stand upon one of the three tiny lookouts that overlooks the variety of ferns, Protea, myriad of herbs and vegetables growing profusely amidst this meditation wonderland. In fact, the entire garden is nearly edible. In the near future this garden wonderland will open to the public. Participants will be able to enjoy organic tea and coffee sold from the café whilst contemplating life amongst the beauty of this magical Tiny Tea Garden. To be kept in the loop and be notified of the launch please email your interest to akaandyk@gmail.com By Terri Lee Fatouros

Whale, dolphin societies like humans

W

hales and dolphins live in complex “societies” that mimic those of human populations, say scientists. In the first study of its kind, researchers gathered information about brain size and social behaviour from 90 different species of dolphins, whales and porpoises. They found “overwhelming” evidence that cetaceans possess sophisticated cultural traits similar to those seen in human societies. The long list of shared characteristics included working together for mutual benefit, teaching tool use, co-operative hunting, and communicating using complex vocalisations with regional “dialects”. The marine creatures also recognised individual “names” in the form of signature “whistles”, looked after youngsters that were not their own, and showed an ability to work with different species, such as humans. Lead scientist Dr Susanne Shultz, an evolutionary

biologist at the University of Manchester’s School of Earth and Environmental Sciences, suggested it was only a lack of thumbs that held whales and dolphins back. She said: “As humans, our ability to socially interact and cultivate relationships has allowed us to colonise almost every ecosystem and environment on the planet. “We know whales and dolphins also have exceptionally large and anatomically sophisticated brains and therefore have created a similar marine-based culture. “That means the apparent co-evolution of brains, social structure, and behavioural richness of marine mammals provides a unique and striking parallel to the large brains and hyper-sociality of humans and other primates on land. “Unfortunately, they won’t ever mimic our great metropolises and technologies because they didn’t evolve opposable thumbs.” Writing in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution, the team argues that large brains

like those of humans, great apes and cetaceans are an evolutionary response to complex and information-rich social environments. Co-author Dr Michael Muthukrishna, from the London School of Economics, said: “This research isn’t just about looking

at the intelligence of whales and dolphins, it also has important anthropological ramifications as well. “In order to move toward a more general theory of human behaviour, we need to understand what makes humans so different from other animals.”

ARIES This week is an important time to reflect on yourself and your goals, Aries. If you want a certain wish to come true, education in some form is your ticket. However tempted you may be to start new projects, it is also necessary to bring outdated tasks to a close. You are happiest when you accomplish things on your to-do A happy energy surrounds your relationships now.

TAURUS People say that if you have luck with games you are less fortunate in love. There is good news: that doesn’t apply to you, Taurus. If you’re in a relationship, you want to make a greater commitment to your partner. You might even decide to take a strange journey this week and go to places you have never been before.

GEMINI Slow down a bit when it comes to sharing information this week, Gemini. Other people might see this strange considering that you’re usually enthusiastic about letting others know what you have in mind, but doing otherwise could have some nasty consequences for your relationships. Lock your mouth! Same is true when it comes to business.

CANCER Opportunities for achievement present themselves to you this week, Cancer. You need to be receptive because if you close your doors, you may never find this spot in your path again. If romance has been on the rocks for a while now, bear in mind that you will have to give so you will receive as well. LEO Your strength could protect people in your vicinity. Do your best to keep a positive attitude, Leo, and especially sensitive to other people’s feelings. Take a look at who needs what and give it to them. Your attention is a lifesaver for that certain person. Negotiations could be tougher than usual this week. VIRGO Deep in your heart you have the feeling that you are responsible for the sacrifice of a loved one. You have earned it so don’t dwell on it for too long. At work and even in love, the cosmos is encouraging you to slow down and pace yourself well this week. You might need to resolve issues that have been going on for some time. LIBRA If your relationship has been a bit shaky lately, this week gives you a chance to see the problem from a unique perspective. It’s as if a light goes on in your mind. This happens because you decide to put your ego aside and open your eyes for the wishes of your partner. SCORPIO If a relationship is already showing small cracks, they will become very visible this week. Be strong in this period of tests, Scorpio. It’s probably the absence of words that is not helping matters get resolved. For a true breakthrough to happen, break the ice and start a conversation. SAGITTARIUS Tackling relationship problems rationally is not the best strategy, Sagi. If you reason your way out of an argument, you will end up screaming at each other. Single? You have a special connection with someone and it’s the nuances that makes this “relationship” exciting, but at the same time create the harmony you both need. CAPRICORN Say yes to the opportunities of love that are being offered to you and no to everything that your intuition warns you for, Cap. You may have sold yourself short on some level before so this time stay true to your beliefs. Straightforward is the best approach for love. If you sit down quietly, nothing will change in your career. It’s time for action to test your luck.

AQUARIUS You’re about to face a dilemma this week, Aquarius. Both versions sound sincere but there is one that isn’t right. If you can’t find any evidence, you won’t be able to pull the right conclusions. Don’t give in to those feelings of superiority because that could work against you. PISCES Overall, this is a wonderful week for you, Pisces. Great opportunities are at hand. Ideas have been swirling in your head lately and they will start to solidify and take form now. You will sometimes feel like you’re moving backward instead of forward. This is expected and you have to be flexible enough to roll with whatever comes your way.

LOAN CLAMPDOWN HELPING HOUSE PRICES: RBA M

oves by regulators to tighten mortgage lending standards are working and have helped ease Australia’s overheated property market, the Reserve Bank says. The central bank maintained its view that key risks to the country’s financial system stem from high levels of household borrowing and warned that an increase in interest rates could hit heavily-indebted households, but also said it has seen a moderation in riskier types of lending. Investor lending has slowed significantly across all states as a result of steps by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) to restrict growth in loans, the RBA said in its halfyearly Financial Stability Review on Friday. “In Sydney and Melbourne, housing price growth has slowed and auction clearance rates have fallen,” the RBA said. “A range of factors have contributed to the slowing, including increased housing supply, higher interest rates for some borrowers and an apparent reduction in demand from foreign buyers.” APRA in March told lenders to limit higher risk interest-only loans, which set off a fresh round of rate increases by the major banks, raising the costs for speculative property investors. While house prices have continued to remain high, data showed this week that the national median house price fell during the September quarter the first quarterly fall recorded since December 2015. The central bank again singled out Brisbane’s apartment market as a weak link, saying the increase in supply has resulted in falling prices and no growth in rents there. However, there are few signs of

settlement defaults on purchased properties so far, it said. That situation could change in the event of interest rates rising. “Higher interest rates, or falls in income, could see some highly indebted households struggle to service their debt and so curtail their spending,” , the Reserve Bank said. Economists widely expect the RBA to start lifting rates from a record low of 1.5 per cent by

the middle of next year but some are betting the change could flow through sooner if economic growth and inflation show signs of improvement.

Banks have expressed concern over the outlook for the retail

sector due to rising competition, changing consumer preferences and the failures of some wellknown retailers, it said. However, Australia’s financial system remains in an overall strong position and its resilience to shocks has increased over recent years, boosted by high profit levels at banks even as bad and doubtful debts remain around historical lows, the central bank said.

A Greens spokesman says the changes would add to existing pressure in the housing market and ignore more obvious solutions such as removing negative gearing and capital gains tax concessions.

HAMILTON TAKES US GRAND PRIX, EYES TITLE

M

ercedes’ Lewis Hamilton is a step closer to a fourth Formula One world title after winning the US Grand Prix ahead of Ferrari rival Sebastian Vettel. The result means the title battle now moves to Mexico next weekend when Hamilton will need to finish fifth or higher to secure the 2017 crown. Hamilton took the chequered flag at the Circuit of the Americas more than 10 seconds ahead of Vettel for his fourth straight win at the Austin, Texas circuit on Sunday, while Mercedes secured a fourth straight constructors’ title. Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo saw his run of three straight podium finishes and four in the past five races end, the Australian’s race finishing on lap 16 with an engine failure following a thrilling duel for third with Valtteri Bottas. “A big congratulations to the team. They work so hard back at

the factory and here,” Hamilton said in the podium interviews with Jamaican sprint star Usain Bolt. “I feel great. I am honoured you’re here,” he told Bolt. “It has been a humbling experience. It is a dream job. Many people would love to drive an F1 car and I can tell you it is the best experience in the world.” Hamilton has now won five of the past six races in Austin and five of the past six races of the season. The 32-year-old Briton takes his wins this season to nine and his career win tally to 62. Red Bull’s Max Verstappen overtook Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen for third right at the end after starting 16th on the grid but was given a five-second penalty for cutting the track, a decision which moved him off the podium to fourth. Vettel got past pole-sitter Hamilton with a brilliant start but the Briton regained the lead on

lap six and always had the pace to keep his rival at bay. The closest Hamilton came to relinquishing the lead came when Vettel pitted on lap 17 of the 56 laps for soft tyres and almost undercut the Mercedes after Hamilton came in for fresh tyres three laps later. “Why did you guys let him go so close,” Hamilton queried over team radio. Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen managed to get past Bottas in a Mercedes to go second, while

Vettel overtook Bottas with five laps left. Late drama came with Verstappen closing in on Raikkonen to get past the Finn right at the end, only to have the stewards slap him with the time penalty - to the anger of Red Bull team principal Christian Horner. Hamilton advances to 331 points in the standings, with Vettel on 265 and Bottas on 244. Ricciardo sits fourth on 192 points made up from a win and nine podium finishes.

Aussies to sledge: Lehmann << cont. from front page...

The comments raised eyebrows in England, where former opener Marcus Trescothick labelled Warner and his comments “pathetic”. But when quizzed over the matter on Friday, Lehmann told cricket. com.au sledging some players had already come up in team discussions ahead of the opening Test in Brisbane on November 23.

“Certainly different players, very much so,” Lehmann said. “That’s just having the advantage of playing at home.” Australia’s last home Ashes tour reached boiling point in the first Test at the Gabba when then-captain Michael Clarke told England paceman Jimmy Anderson to “get ready for a broken f***ing arm”

SIMMONS ‘GREAT’ IN NBA SO FAR: COACH BROWN << cont. from back page...

too big for him, or that he (has been) shocked by the stage. “I don’t see that at all.” Simmons’ 18 points, 10 rebounds and five assists on debut against the Washington Wizards put him in the record books as the first Australian to record a double-double on NBA opening night.

He backed up against the Boston Celtics, in his first home fixture, to contribute 11 points, 11 rebounds and five assists. “Yeah I’m having fun. I’m just enjoying it,” Simmons said on Saturday as he prepared to face the Toronto Raptors. “This is where I want to be and what I want to do.”

Former Australian off-spinner Kerry O’Keeffe also called on Warner and his teammates to try to get under the skin of Anderson and beseiged all-rounder Ben Stokes this week, as he claimed they could both be affected by the extra attention. Stokes in particular could become a target for the Australians if he is given permission to tour by the English and Wales Cricket Board, with a police investigation ongoing into a brawl which left a man being taken to hospital. And while Lehmann said sledging wouldn’t become personal, he believed it would become heated on both sides of the ledger. “It’s going to be a fiery series at different times but they all know each other reasonably well because they play so much cricket with and against each other these days,” he said. “As long as it doesn’t go personal, and no one will go down that path, but I’m sure our boys will give as good as they get.”

PATRIOTS CONTINUE NFL MISERY OVER FALCONS

T

om Brady threw two touchdown passes and the New England Patriots toyed with the Atlanta Falcons. Sound familiar? The Patriots’ 23-7 victory in a fog-filled Super Bowl rematch on Sunday night wasn’t particularly super. New England scored the final 31 points to win the NFL championship 34-28 in February. Placards and shirts reading 28-3 were ever-present in and around Gillette Stadium as the Patriots (5-2) scored the first 23 points in this prime-time mismatch. The Falcons (3-3), who led New England by that 25-point margin in the third quarter of the Super Bowl before folding, were outplayed throughout this one. While Atlanta looked tentative, if not intimidated, Brady and his offence clinically tore apart the Falcons. Mixing runs and passes, New England controlled the clock and field position. And its defence, ranked at the bottom of the entire league through six weeks, stymied the NFL’s fifth-ranked offence. “Every game takes a little different turn and I think we did a great job staying balanced,” Brady said after the Patriots gained

162 yards on the ground and 241 through the air. Brady threw a shovel pass to Brandin Cooks that travelled perhaps a foot, and the receiver used his speed to get into the left corner of the end zone. The other TD was a two-yarder to James White, who had three touchdowns in the Super Bowl. It got so bad for Atlanta that the usually reliable Matt Bryant had a field goal blocked and then put a 36-yarder off the left upright. That Super Bowl losers’ malaise folks talk about might have found a home in the ATL this year. Stephen Gostkowski had no trouble sending field goals of 29, 21 and 38 yards through the fog for New England. The Falcons seemed ready to end the string of points allowed to the Patriots at 51 when they got to the 1 early in the fourth period. But Matt Ryan, who struggled all night, was off-target to Julio Jones in the end zone. Then receiver Taylor Gabriel lost 4 yards on a fourth-down run. Even the fans in the upper deck who could barely see through the haze at that point let out a huge cheer, then Gostkowski added his third field goal to extend New England’s mastery of Atlanta to 54 straight points.

onduras have increased the difficulty level for the Socceroos in next month’s World Cup qualifying playoff, setting an earlier than expected kick-off time. The first leg in San Pedro Sula will begin in daylight at 4pm on Friday November 10. For soccer fans in Australia that means a 9am AEDT start on Saturday November 11. But for Ange Postecoglou’s side it means contending with sweltering conditions in the tropical city. A long-range forecast predicts thunderstorms and a temperature in the region of 30C, with humidity in the 90 per cent range. In some consolation, the earlier kick-off time may allow the

SAINTS END AMERICAN EXPERIMENT IN AFL

and had 34 hitouts in a drawn game against Geelong. The former US college basketballer was elevated off the rookie list for 2017 but failed to add to the five games he played over the previous two seasons, with Billy Longer and Tom Hickey preferred ahead of him. “To play just one AFL match is an enormous achievement for someone who knew almost nothing of our game a few years t Kilda’s American experiment has ended with ago,” coach Alan Richardson said of the 27-year-old. the delisting of Chicago“His commitment to learning, born ruckman Jason Holmes on improving, and to St Kilda, over Monday. the past four years has been Fellow ruckman Lewis Pierce was also cut, but the Saints have outstanding and his strong pledged to offer him a lifeline as a character and personality has been an asset around the club.” rookie-listed player next year. “We wish him well for whatever Holmes, an international rookie the future holds and thank him signing in 2014, made his debut for his contribution to the Saints.” in round 21 of the 2015 season

Bulldogs poach new A CEO from Saints in AFL

T

he Western Bulldogs have poached highly-regarded Ameet Bains from St Kilda as Carlton and Collingwood’s chief executive search continues. Bains will take the top job at Whitten Oval in December, replacing the retiring Gary Kent. A former corporate lawyer, Bains has long been considered one of the most influential figures at the Saints in his role as chief operating officer. The Monash University graduate has played a leading role in the Saints’ list management and also serves as their general counsel. “We had a broad range of wellcredentialled candidates for the position both from inside the AFL industry and from a range of other professions,” Bulldogs president Peter Gordon said on Monday. “We think that Ameet is ideally suited to our club’s next stage of development, with his mix of legal, commercial, projects and football expertise.”

Bains had been considered among the top contenders to replace Simon Lethlean as the AFL’s football operations manager - a position ultimately filled by former Geelong football boss Steve Hocking. Lethlean stepped down from his AFL post in July amid revelations he had an “inappropriate” relationship with a co-worker. The former Hawthorn reserves player is nonetheless viewed as a strong candidate for a club role and has been strongly linked to Carlton, who earlier this month sacked chief executive Steven Trigg. Lethlean is also viewed as a contender to replace Gary Pert at Collingwood, having reportedly met with Magpies president Eddie McGuire to discuss the vacancy. Hawthorn last week appointed Geelong second-in-command Justin Reeves as their new chief executive, replacing the sacked Tracey Gaudry.

aron Mooy has starred on the big stage yet again and scored his second goal of the EPL season as Huddersfield Town shocked Manchester United 2-1. The Socceroos midfielder scored the opener for Huddersfield as they upset the Premier League giants at The John Smith’s Stadium on Saturday. While United dominated possession throughout the first half it was Huddersfield who broke the game open in the 28th minute, when Mooy pounced. Initially the 27-year-old Australian dispossessed Juan Mata in central midfield and played Tom Ince in behind the United defence. Ince beat several United defenders before being stopped by a reflex save from David de Gea, but the ball spilled to Mooy who thundered the rebound home with his left foot from around the penalty spot, to make it 1-0. Five minutes later and the Terriers sent their home fans into a frenzy when Belgian forward Laurent Depoitre took advantage of a shocking defensive mistake by Victor Lindelof.

Lindelof completely whiffed a header and Depoitre ran onto the loose ball, then rounded de Gea to score the easiest of goals and make it 2-0. Responding to the scoreline at halftime United manager Jose Mourinho rang the changes. He brought on big guns Henrikh Mikhitaryan and Marcus Rashford for Mata and Anthony Martial as the Red Devils chased the game. Still United couldn’t break down the Terriers, and did not get a shot on target until the 75th minute when Jonas Lossl made a fine save to deny Ander Herrera. On 77 minutes the damn wall broke and it was Rashford who found the net when unchallenged at the back post he headed home a Romelu Lukaku cross to make it 2-1. From there United continued to lay siege to the Huddersfield goal but they simply could not find a way past the desperate Terriers defence. United had one last chance though in the final minute of injury time when Chris Smalling found himself in space inside the area, but his shot was blocked by a desperate slide from Town defender Mathias Zanka.
