Top Drug Cop in Bali Counts Profits and Losses of International Drug Trafficking in Bali The head of the Bali division of The National Narcotics Agency (BNNP) has described Bali as a center for the international narcotics trade. I Gusti Ketut Budiartha of BNPP warned: “Bali is an

island heaven, an international tourism destination. Bali is prone to be a place for drug circulation. While there are many positive aspects to tourism's development, the negative aspects of that development are being exploited by narcotic dealers.” Continue to page 2

Throwing the Book at Corruptors Prosecutors Seeking Record High Sentences in Corruption C a s e O v e r Parking Fees at Bali's Airport Two of the men charged in the corruption of parking fees from Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport have heard State Prosecutors call for record jail sentences as punishment for their crimes. State Prosecutors are demanding prison terms of 14.5 years for the operational manager of Parking Authority - Penata Sarana Bali (PSB) Mekhael Maksi and PSB employee Rudi Sitorus. Continued from page 1 Saying that not all tourist visitors bring benefit to Bali, this fact is demonstrated by the large number of foreigners who have been apprehended and imprisoned for drug offenses in Bali.

To date, the harshest narcotics trade are tempting to potential lawbreakers. He explained: “In Iran 1 kilogram of sabu-sabu (methamphetamines) costs between Rp. 15 -30 million.

UFOs in Bali?

BALI THE RIGHT WAY Gday again folks and welcome to the latest on the streets of Bali. A semi decent week for the tipsters with many getting the full tote. Pies had a half decent game against the Cats and didn't give in at all until the end when the wobbles took over. Richmond again cost me a tip by losing to the Western Bulldogs by a pathetic 2 points. They trailed by over 30 points and cameback from the depth of hell to take the lead then lose by 2 points. Id say the powers that be at the club will have a aliasj@kutaweekly.com special meeting to put the team on the straight and id say a few souls will be given their marching shoes if things don't improve. Ok moving along this week Id like to throw a big thanks out to the crew at Crusoe’s on Legian street, who have been supporting the paper for many years, basically since it began many years ago, and Id like to direct your attention to the front page of the paper where they are offering a loyalty card to expats or travellers that wish to enjoy a coldy or two. The deal is arguably one of the best on the street if you go by price and if you factor in the savings on food you really cant beat the deal. There are many places that claim they offer a deal if you buy a bucket, but they must think all expats and travellers are as thick as two planks of bamboo and cant do maths. You only have to look at the cost to realize that you could feed a family of four instead of enjoying a few beers each day at the place. I guess that's the difference between someone who owns the place and someone who is a wage jockey. The powers that be at Crusoe’s are the ones who take responsibility regarding the complete operation and are the ones that pay the bills. They have the capacity to offer a real deal which is again probably the best offer on the main street of Kuta. Membership is free and all you need do is roll in and ask to become one. The staff will take your details and you will be given your card. This entitles you to the happy hour price on things 24/7, so a cold Bintang is going to cost you 18k now that's cheap. All cocktails are two for the price of one, being buy one get one free, and they use the good stuff not the crappy stuff. A long time ago the boss decided that using the cheaper crappy mixers was not the way to go so for the last 7 years has been using the good gear. At the end of the day Crusoe’s is a great place to kick back and enjoy a few cold ones on a hot afternoon and we thank them for their support over the years. You can check out their adverts on pages9 & 23 and they also have a panel on the front page. I hope all our loyal readers get in and take full advantage of the deal Crusoe’s is offering the seasoned travellers to Bali. Thanks again lads for your support.

Hundreds in Ubud See a Fireball Thought to be 'leak' during Nyepi Observances Hundreds, if not thousands, of residents of the Bali arts community of Ubud experienced a supernatural phenomenon when a giant fireball moved across the community on Monday night, March 31, 2014. Known locally as a “leak” – flying fire balls are thought to be the incarnation of black magic practitioners and reside in the psyche of all Balinese, many of who will retell of personal encounters with the leak phenomenon. The leak that visited Bali on March 31 was estimated to be the size of a large chicken cage. The fireball first appeared on Monday night at around 11:00 pm in a position atop the Bale Kulkul at Bale Banjar Taman Kelod, just east of the Puri Agung Palace in Ubud. Eyewitness quoted in NusaBali say the fireball hovered in place for

nearly 5 minutes before moving the northeast and eventually disappearing into the night sky. A local member of the Banjar Pacalang Corps from Taman Kelod, I Gusti Ketut Keramas, said efforts to find the source of the fireball were unsuccessful. Villagers were reportedly placed in a state of panic and fear, seeing the leak's appearance during Nyepi as signifying that the deity Ida Batara had descended to earth while other possessing a more pessimistic view saw the fireball as proof of of evil black magic at play. Many residents managed to capture the fireball on their hand phone cameras, posting the images later to their Facebook pages. The former regent of Gianyar, Tjokorda Oka Arta Arhana Sukawati (Cok Ace) and the head of the Ubud Palace household confirmed he had received many reports of the fireball sighting, saying many villagers found it

Cok Ace's personal view was that the fireball was the manifestation of a black magic practitioner testing his or her powers. This suspicion was backed up, he said, by the fact that the phenomenon appeared on Kajeng Kliwon Kulantir on the Balinese calendar – a rare and most auspicious day for experiments with the dark side. Cok Ace said whether or not the leak poses a personal threat, depends largely on the attitude of those who witness the event. He said it was important to neither be frightened by the fireball or to try to oppose it. Urging that such phenomenon and those behind them be left alone in their own separate dark reality, Cok Ace said those encountering someone in the act of practicing such magic should merely say “nyelang margi” or “please allow me to pass” and then quickly move on. www.balidiscovery.com

Not Impressed with Bali's New Airport Bali's 'New" Airport Winning Few Fans and Generally Seen as an Airport that Simply Doesn't Work Willem Loots, a long-time Bali resident and semiretired professional in Indonesian tourism, had the occasion to travel through Bali's still-under-construction Ngurah Rai International Airport on April 1, 2014. On that same date, a more costly International Passenger Service Charge applied for all outgoing passengers went into effect. The Domestic Passenger Service Charge will follow suit in August. Representative of the widespread disappointment with Bali's new air gateway, Loots shared his experience at Bali's new airport at the invitation of Balidiscovery.com. The Sad Decline from Airport Tax to Service Charge Last Tuesday, April 1st I went through the experience of using the departure facilities at Ngurah Rai Denpasar Airport for the first time since the new international terminal was inaugurated last September. I have been flying in an out of Bali countless times since I first came to the island in 1973. In a way, Ngurah Rai has always occupied a dear place in my heart, so I was totally unprepared for the awful situation that I found. I had booked and checked-in online and printed my boarding pass at home. With hand luggage only, I thought that it would be sufficient to reach the airport an hour and a half before boarding time. A few days before my departure I had read that the airport tax would be raised from Rp. 150,000 to Rp. 200,000 as per August 1. Therefore it came as a surprise that August had arrived early when the young lady at the desk, now marked Airport Service Charge, informed me that the new rate was already in force. The immigration procedure was swift and efficient and I am ready to admit that it is a measure of progress that I had to go through security screening only once. (Last year, I had to take off my shoes twice). However the nightmare started immediately afterwards. After security it is impossible to just walk to the gates. In the old days shopping, tax free or not, was an OPTION. In the new setup of Angkasa Pura it is an absolute MUST to be confronted with loads of stuff you do not need. They make you stumble through a ridiculously long, serpentine labyrinth of department stores that are not only shocking in their opulence but probably extremely dangerous in emergency situations as well. Everything is placed much too close together and in case of an earthquake you better not find yourself

in the airport-shopping stampede‌ Once I had waded through the tax-free nightmare and reached the hallway of the boarding gates I found that the first four electronic signboards I encountered were not functioning. There was no departure information whatsoever in the area where one exits from the tax free zone. I took off on a long walk to the East, asking anyone in uniform where I could find out from what gate my flight would leave, but no one could offer any advice or assistance. After hundreds of meters I finally did find ONE electronic information board lit up. While it did provide a list of flights departing during the rest of the day, THERE WAS NO GATE INFORMATION FOR ANY FLIGHT LEAVING DURING THE NEXT HOUR. My own Air Asia boarding pass indicated that I had to be at the gate at 12:15 and that I would be denied boarding if I would not show up before 12:35. At my advanced age and with rising anger and blood pressure I kept pacing up and down the corridor that looks out on the runway, accosting anyone looking official on my path. When I finally found two uniformed Angkasa Pura officials lounging in between some of the gates they could not give any gate info either, so I asked where I could find the office of the people responsible for running the airport. I was told that I had to leave the terminal and go across the street to find them. At exactly 12:13 a notice finally appeared on the single working information board that flight QZ8494 scheduled to depart at 12: 55 could be found at Gate 10. To reach Gate 10, from where the busses leave to the outskirts of the apron we had to go down an escalator to an area where there was neither air conditioning nor any room for passengers to sit down. Those who came last ended up sitting on the stairs. For this scandalous lack of service everyone on QZ8494 had paid Rp. 200,000. These passengers should get their money back and the people at Angkasa Pura who are responsible for this outrage should be fired. When I arrived in Singapore I was in a taxi within 20 minutes from the moment the plane touched down. It is always a pleasure to witness how the Changi Airport Authority implements a taxi management system that works seamlessly. It feeds passengers fairly and efficiently into taxis strictly on a first come-first serve basis. No one loses time unnecessarily. It is a perfect procedure for both drivers and their clients. When, three days later, I returned to Bali it took more than an hour to clear immigration and customs. For a Friday rush hour, that was by itself not too bad since all officials were friendly and working hard. But afterwards, as a final insult, Angkasa Pura once again made me march through a TAX FREE shopping area before I could walk out into the mad chaos of the taxi touts. www.balidiscovery.com

Start Up Exercise So you have made the leap from the stability of a salaried position to the dark abyss of entrepreneurship and survived. Firstly, congratulations on making it through that tough and often financially draining start-up phase. The next test is to see if your business can not only survive, but build a sustainable cash flow to meet your own personal financial needs. Whether it canand to what extent is based on three factors: 1.What do you need to cover your living expenses? 2.What can the business afford? 3.What is a reasonable level of remuneration for the work you do? You own the business, and therefore you set the budget. The size of your pay packet is entirely up to you. Sounds easy in theory, and many entrepreneurs dream of this power when launching a business. However, in reality most business owners find it a very tough decision. The quest to balance your personal needs and those of building a strong business for the future can be daunting. Firstly, a personal budget is essential to avoid nasty surprises. The next priority is to secure the business's future cash flow so you can meet expenses like your takehome pay in the future. The biggest danger to your business survival is bleeding too much cash out at an early stage to “match” your previous income when employed. 1. What do you need to cover your living expenses? Your take-home pay should depend on your living expenses, personal savings and comfort level with drawing on those personal savings. Don't forget to include your spouse or partner in this discussion, as they may have a totally different view that you must consider. Use this good budget planner

on the government's SmartMoney.gov.au website. Bear in mind you are working back to a desired income, rather than starting with a set income like an employed person. Include all your financial commitments, such as your mortgage or rent, car loans, insurance, utilities, gym membership, food bills and entertainment. This planner helps you avoid underestimating personal living, and is a good habit to form now that you are self-reliant. 2. What can your business's cash flow afford? Once you've calculated the salary required to survive, consider your business's finances. Project how much cash you'll have coming in to the business every month with a cash flow projection. Make sure you will have enough cash to cover your expected salary along with the other business operating expenses. If the business is seasonal, you may have to adapt your drawdown strategy to suit the cash flow. If your business is doing very well, don't fall in to the trap of leaving too much cash in the business. Remember — your business pays tax at the 30% rate, so you should consider taking funds out that would keep you below the 32.5% tax threshold at $37,000. These funds can be invested at you or your spouse's lower marginal tax rates, and you can always lend the funds back to the company later if needed. It's a balance between keeping enough cash flow for the business to be healthy and fund future growth, but not wasting funds that could be invested more tax effectively in the meantime. As your business grows, you can increase your salary as your business breaks even and continues to profit. 3. What is a reasonable level of remuneration for the work you do? One important requirement is to differentiate between what the

business should pay you as an employee and the business profit distribution for you as an investor. The business is replacing your previous job, so it needs to be able to eventually pay you for your experience and skills and the time and effort you put in. This is totally different from the return on your investment for the risk you are taking on as a business owner. Your goal should be to pay yourself for your work on the basis of a market comparable salary, but any other remuneration should be paid through a profit distribution. This makes it easier to plan for long-term business succession because it identifies true employee costs — a part of what it really costs to run the business. Small-business owners should discuss their payment options with their accountant to see if it is more tax effective to take a salary, a dividend or take funds by way of a drawdown of their shareholders' loan. This is where the personal financial situation of the owner needs to be considered to maximise the after-tax result of the arrangement. It's a major milestone when a business becomes profitable enough that you can be paid for your efforts. Deciding how much to pay yourself, and whether to take the money as a salary, dividend or as a drawdown, requires careful consideration. (Some people will never make it in their own business and always be a wage earner)

Egg on show for first time in 112 years A Fabergé Imperial Easter Egg made for Emperor Alexander III of Russia and not seen in public for more than a century will go on show in London after being saved from the melting pot by an American scrap dealer who only accidentally realized its value. The Lost Third Imperial Easter Egg was made by Peter Carl Fabergé as a gift for Empress Maria Feodorovna for Easter 1887. The 8.2 cm (3.2 inches) tall egg, made from gold and studded with diamonds and sapphires, was last displayed in St Petersburg in 1902. I t w a s seized by the Bolsheviks during the 1917 Russian Revolution and mysteriously made its way to the United States. By chance, an unidentified man bought it at a market in the U.S. Midwest for $14,000, intending to sell it for scrap. Unable to find a buyer, he searched the Internet and realized that he may have found Empress Maria Feodorovna's lost Easter egg. London antiques dealer Wartski, which specializes in the work of Fabergé, bought the egg for an unidentified private collector who has permitted it to go on show in its small showroom near London's luxury shopping strip Bond Street. "For the art historical community and for the Fabergé world, I think we had to say that it

16

was found. It's like finding a missing Rembrandt and you didn't tell anybody," Kieran McCarthy, director of Wartski, told Reuters. "It may disappear again and may not be seen for, who knows I would not be surprised if it didn't come out for another 112 years," he said. Slightly taller than a cup

cake, the ridged yellow gold egg sits on its original tripod with lion paw feet. It is encircled with gold flower garlands strung from cabochon blue sapphires topped with rose diamond-set bows. Like all Fabergé's eggs, it contains a "surprise" a lady's watch by Vacheron Constantin with a white enamel face and diamond-set gold hands. The watch has been taken from its case and mounted in the Egg so it can be displayed upright. The egg was made in the St Petersburg workshop of Fabergé's chief jeweler August Holmstrom between 1886 and 1887. "In the hierarchy of Fabergé objects, the egg occupies the very, very highest level," said McCarthy. "They each took a year to make from the original conception to the

completion of it for delivery on Good Friday each Easter." Fabergé eggs are considered masterpieces, affordable only by royalty or the very rich. Since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, some newly wealthy Russians have become enthusiastic collectors of Fabergé treasures. Metals tycoon Viktor Vekselberg bought a collection of Fabergé Imperial Easter Eggs for $90 million from the Forbes family in 2004. The eggs were taken back to Moscow and put on exhibition in the Kremlin. A Russian businessman with a passion for Tsarist treasures, Alexander Ivanov, said he was behind the $18.5 million purchase of a Fabergé egg in London in 2007. The Third Imperial Easter Egg is one of 50 delivered by Fabergé to Emperors Alexander III and Nicholas II from 1885 to 1916, and until its recent discovery was one of eight lost eggs. Only two others of these lost eggs are thought to have survived the revolution. "It just shows that you never know," said McCarthy, when asked whether hope remains that the other two will be found. "We never thought this one would turn up and literally it was on somebody who walked through the front door." The Lost Third Imperial Easter Egg can be seen from April 14 to 17 at Wartski's showroom in London.

Brad Symes is weighing up his football future after a sickening hit on Saturday FORMER AFL star Brad Symes might be forced to quit football altogether after a sickening hit left him severely concussed on Saturday. Symes was smashed while playing for Central District in the South Australian National Football League. Opposition player Adam Grocke collected Symes with what appeared to be a stray elbow as he attempted to take a mark. It was the second sickening concussion Symes has suffered within a year, and it continues a history of head injuries which have left him weighing his future. He missed last year's elimination final after a massive head clash with another player, Ben Kane. Symes spent Saturday in hospital where he was cleared of facial fractures. Central District chief executive Kris Grant said Symes was nursing an “very, very sore jaw” and would discuss his future with club medical staff and family in the next week. Grant was unsure how many concussions Symes had suffered but knew it was more than four. The courageous 29-year-old became a father late last year and also recently opened a clothing shop. He must decide whether it is worth potentially further risking his future health by returning to football. “He has had a history of concussion and we are not quite sure what will happen but we are aware that this could be the end (of

18

his career),'' Grant said. “We have to sit down with Brad — it would be wrong to do that today or tomorrow. “We need to sit down with the club medical staff. “Brad will need to come to the right decision in terms of his health. That has to be done.” The long-term affect concussions and head injuries have on the brain of players has become an increasingly large issue in football over the past year. Former AFL stars Greg Williams and Dean Kemp have both revealed they are suffering long-term brain injuries postfootball and suffered from memory loss among other symptoms. Former West Coast and South Adelaide player Tim Houlihan prematurely retired from the SANFL last year because scans showed he had sustained a brain injury playing football. Last week gutsy former Brisbane Lions premiership player, now Power coaching director, Shaun Hart told The Advertiser he and his

wife were concerned about his future health after he suffered several bad blows to the head during his career. Dogs coach Roy Laird spoke to Symes yesterday. Laird said doctors advice would probably guide Symes in his decision. “He's had other head injuries over his career,'' Laird said. “It's purely about his welfare. Knowing Brad, I'd imagine if he was reassured (by doctors) about his health he would look at playing footy but if there were any long term health issues that get thrown up then it would be unlikely he'd play again. It's very up in the air.” Grocke was reported for rough conduct over the incident and will front the tribunal this week. Grant said the club was angered by the incident. “It would be a disgusting way for somebody of Brad Symes' ilk to end his career if that is the case,'' Grant said.

Essendon veterans Dustin Fletcher and Paul Chapman remain in doubt for Round 4 game against Fremantle ESSENDON veterans Dustin Fletcher and Paul Chapman are likely be rested from Sunday's game against Fremantle at Patersons Stadium. Interim coach Bomber Thompson said the pair are battling soreness and would not be risked. Chapman was hampered by an ankle injury in the second half against Carlton and at 38 years of age Fletcher is not expected to play every game this season. “I think he (Chapman) hurt it twice during the game, early and at the end as well. “You've just got to wait and see how he pulls up,” Thompson said on Tuesday. “I think Dustin's pulled up a bit sore too, so he may not play at this stage, but it's only very early in the week so we'll have to wait and see. “We don't know about Fletch, he's a bit like Chappy — the

older they get they've got the appetite to play, they never want to miss,” he said. Thompson said ruckman Patrick Ryder was a “good chance” to recover from an ankle injury in time to do battle with Fremantle giant Aaron Sandilands. But like Fletcher and Chapman, Ryder would not be rushed. “It's Round 4, it's silly to take any risk. From our point of view we probably won't play guys who are sore, because they just can't play to their potential and then that just sort of lingers around for a few more weeks and affects that performance too in those games,” Thompson said. The trip West might be an issue for Fletcher and Chapman, but Thompson welcomed the challenge of playing last year's grand finalists at their home ground. Fremantle was the No. 1 defensive team in 2013, while

Essendon has proved to be one of the best attacking outfits this season, with its precision kicking skills a feature. “Good teams are good teams, no matter where they play,” he said. He refused to be drawn on his future at the club beyond this season or the comments made by Geelong premiership captain Tom Harley — who stated Essendon was a better coached team under Thompson. “The more talk about James and me, the more I don't like it, it's irrelevant really,” he said. Running defender Courtenay Dempsey remains on a club imposed suspension for being late to club engagements, but Thompson said the 26-yearold had “done everything right” since. Spring-heeled forward Kyle Hardingham was subbed out of Sunday night's game in the third quarter and needs to get through training this week to take his place in the side.

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs fined $20,000 for breaching concussion rules

THE Bulldogs have been fined $20,000 for failing to comply with the NRL's strict new concussion guidelines. NRL head of football Todd Greenberg said on Tuesday morning that the NRL had issued one breach notice, to the Bulldogs, for an incident involving forward Josh Jackson in Round 2. He said the club would be fined $20,000 for the breach. As it was a first breach, $10,000 will be suspended but the club will be liable to pay this if there are any further breaches during the

2014 season. Greenberg said that during the first five rounds: 27 players were taken from the field to undergo Sideline Concussion Assessments (SCAs); 14 of those players returned to the field after being cleared of concussion; 13 did not return to the field; Five clubs have been given “please explain” notices in relation to their compliance with the new concussion rules believed to include cases involving Wests Tigers forward Liam Fulton, the Bulldogs' James Graham, as well as Parramatta and Penrith players. He said he would further consult with the club CEOs, chief medical officers, coaches and players as well as the Rugby League Players Association (RLPA)

in the coming months to hear their views on the way the policy is working. “There is no doubt the new policy has raised awareness of the need to take concussion seriously,” Greenberg said. “We know that the club doctors and medical staff are best placed to determine whether a player should return to the field after a head knock. “We believe they are overwhelmingly acting in the best interests of their players but we will continue to take action where a breach occurs.” Greenberg said, that overall, clubs had complied with the policy which is aimed at protecting players who suffer head knocks during games.

Melbourne Storm angry over NRL's lack of consistency on dangerous lifting tackles MELBOURNE Storm will seek an explanation from the NRL over an astonishing lack of consistency regarding dangerous lifting tackles. On the same day Alex McKinnon was transferred from Melbourne to a Sydney hospital to continue his recovery from devastating spinal injuries, the NRL's match review committee chose not to charge two players for incidents that were similar to the one that led to Jordan McLean's sevenmatch suspension. The Storm were infuriated that the Gold Coast's Beau Falloon was cleared over a lifting tackle on Melbourne's Will Chambers on Sunday. St George Illawarra's Joel Thompson also escaped punishment after sending Greg Inglis crashing into the turf on Saturday night, while the Dragons' Jack de Belin only copped a grade

one charge for his dangerous throw on Sam Burgess. Thompson was involved in a three-man tackle on Inglis that brought a stunning reaction on the night from Fox Sports commentator Warren Smith, who said in commentary: “Boy oh boy, the penny will drop at some stage with everybody. Nothing good is going to come from a situation like that.” But it doesn't appear as though the penny has dropped at Rugby League Central because the consistency of the match review committee charges continues to mystify fans and experts. As NRL fans vented their anger on social media, the NRL's match review committee chairman Michael Buettner attempted to clarify why Falloon and Thompson weren't charged. “Under the rules, for a player to be charged with a dangerous throw we have to be satisfied that a player has

been lifted into a position where it is likely that the first part of his body that will make contact with the ground will be his head or neck,” Buettner said. “With the Joel Thompson tackle, we did not believe a charge was appropriate as, while there is a lifting action, Inglis retains one leg on the ground for much of the tackle and he clearly lands on his forearms. He doesn't reach a dangerous position. “With the Beau Falloon tackle, again there was a lifting action but we do not feel he is put in a position where it is likely his head or neck will make first contact with the ground. ''It is his forearm that makes first contact with the ground, then the shoulder, and in our opinion a penalty was sufficient.” Melbourne forward Dayne Weston will miss a week with an early guilty plea on the charge of dangerous contact — unnecessary head/neck pressure.

Twitter explodes as Robbie Farah weighs into Jamie Soward feud with Footy Show's Beau Ryan TWITTER has gone into meltdown after Robbie Farah ignited tensions between Jamie Soward and Beau Ryan over a Footy Show skit. Farah on Monday night fired a carefully aimed shot at Soward after the Penrith playmaker responded to questions over the Footy Show skit on Channel Nine news. Asked what he thought of being a regular target of Beau Ryan in the Footy Show segment known as 'Jamie Soward TV', the prickly fiveeighth didn't bother to hide his disdain, asking if the injured Sharks winger was even playing this season before suggesting that

he belonged back in NSW Cup. Farah, who is a close friend of his former Tigers teammate Ryan, was quick to get involved, sending Twitter into a spin when he tweeted this: “What about Ssssowieeeeee having a cry on t h e n e w s t o n i g h t @therealbeauryan hahahaha #siro�

Responses on Twitter ranged from fans hitting back at Farah and Ryan with accusations of bullying, people siding with Farah by teeing off at Soward, and accusations of hypocrisy aimed at Farah, given the Tigers skipper has reacted negatively to previous Footy Show skits by Ryan. The three-way feud is the second war of words between NRL players to break out on Twitter in two days after Titans skipper Greg Bird took a cheeky shot at Melbourne star Cooper Cronk in the wake of the Gold Coast's controversial win over the Storm on Sunday.

When the first package arrived last month, the man threw it in the garbage, Seattle police spokeswoman Detective Renee Witt said. But, after another package reached his front door, he took it to authorities. Washington and Colorado became the first U.S. states to legalize recreational pot in voter initiatives in 2012, and Washington law allows people to possess up to an ounce (28 grams) of marijuana. But shipping the drug through the U.S. Postal Service remains illegal. The federal government classifies marijuana as an illegal narcotic, although the Obama administration has issued guidelines giving states new leeway to experiment with legalized cannabis. Authorities said the pot mailed to the Seattle man's home came marked "return to sender, insufficient postage," and had been addressed to a business in Georgia. It listed the man's home as the return address. "Federally it (pot possession) is still considered a crime, so you absolutely cannot under any circumstance send marijuana through the mail," Witt said. She said a similar incident happened about a

year ago, when another man brought in pot that had been sent to his address, listed as the sender, citing insufficient postage. In both cases, police documented the pot before destroying it. Witt said the two cases do not appear to indicate a broader problem of people mailing pot from Washington state to states where possession of the drug remains against the law. "We don't see this very often," she said. "For us it's not something we're worried about."

Queen gives pope eggs, whiskey and beer Queen Elizabeth met Pope Francis for the first time and gave a bemused pontiff culinary delights from the royal estates, including a dozen eggs and a bottle of whisky. "I've also brought something from all our estates, which is for you personally," said the queen, wearing a lavender dress and a purple hat, as she handed Francis a wicker basket full of food at the end of a 17-minute private meeting in the Vatican. The 18 items from Buckingham Palace, Windsor, Sandringham and Balmoral also included two types of honey, " C o r o n a t i o n B e s t B i t t e r, " "Grandad's chutney" and "Sandringham handmade aromatherapy soaps". A Vatican official said the pope would likely share the food

with other residents of the guest house where he has lived since his election after renouncing the spacious papal apartments or would donate it. The Queen and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, met the pope in a modern room attached to the Vatican's audience hall without much of the ceremonial pomp that usually accompanies such visits. A Vatican statement did not say what the two discussed. The Queen is also the Supreme

Governor of the Church of England, which split from Rome in 1534. The pope is Argentine and Britain went to war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands, which Argentina calls the Malvinas, in 1982. To c u t s h o r t a n y speculation that the two might have discussed the Falklands, the British embassy reminded reporters that while the pope may be Argentine, the Vatican's official position on the territorial dispute is a neutral one. Francis also gave the queen a gift for her eight-month-old greatgrandson, Prince George of Cambridge. It was a sphere made of lapis lazuli, a deep blue semiprecious stone, topped with the silver cross of St. Edward. "He will be thrilled by it," the queen told the pope. Then she paused and added: "When he is a little older".

Buddhists form "anti-terrorist" squad Nervous about a repeat of last month's deadly knife attack at a Chinese train station, a well-known Buddhist temple in eastern China has drafted some of its monks into a new "antiterrorist" squad. The team at the 1,700year-old Lingyin Temple in the tourist city of Hangzhou is made up of 20 monks and more than 20 security guards, the official Xinhua news agency quoted the temple's Buddhist Master Jueheng as saying. The squad's members are equipped with shields, pepper spray and batons. It is the first time a Chinese temple has set up such a team, Xinhua said. "The squad members practice Buddhism in the day and

30

take part in training exercises at night," Jueheng said, adding police helped with the training. "We set up the squad to guard against violence and terrorist attacks in a bid to protect the safety of visitors and Buddhism believers." The China News Service said the idea sprang from last month's attack at the Kunming train station in southwestern

the far western region of Xinjiang. Thirty-three people died, including four of the attackers, shot dead by police. That incident "attracted the attention of temple authorities", the report said. China remains jittery after that incident and after a vehicle ploughed into tourists on the edge of Tiananmen Square last October, killing the three people in the car and two bystanders. China labeled that incident a suicide attack by Xinjiang militants. Such violence has, however, generally been confined to Xinjiang and the targets are normally the security forces or government officials, rather than tourist or religious sites.

Epic drain fail has town laughing

A teenager who climbed waist deep in sewage has cheerfully become an object of fun, even to her own mother. Ella Birchenough, 16, ducked into a Dover drain to retrieve her

dropped mobile phone with her feet but was not able to get out again. The sight of blonde teen sticking out of the bitumen drew onlookers who stopped to have a chuckle. Good natured Ella was in high spirits, witness Tim Richards, 22 said. “She was in quite high spirits," Mr Richards said. "She didn't seem too bothered about being stuck.” Ella's mother Joanne, 36, panicked when first told of her

collapsed into laughter when she saw Ella protruding from the road. Joanne joined neighbours and gawkers in taking pictures of the epic phone fail on show. Ella went on to say: “When they pulled me out I ran straight home and jumped in the bath. I think it was just water but I wasn't taking any chances. “I was just laughing the whole time, I have seen the funny side of it. You just have to laugh along with it."

Fraudster wins new job, steals and runs A Czech fraudster on the run from prison got hired as a chief economist at a museum, where he stole some 10 million Czech crowns ($500,000). Police came to arrest Vladimir Prokop at his office at the National Agriculture Museum, close to the Interior Ministry. He fled through the exhibition halls of the museum, an emergency exit staircase and then hailed a cab. "He was an ordinary, even compliant man, nobody thought he would turn out to be a worldclass trickster," the museum spokesman

LubomirMarsik said. The money stolen amounts to roughly a third of the annual budget of the museum. Most of it was found in plastic bags at Prokop's flat. Prokop got the job at the museum under a false identity, presenting himself as a trained economist. Calls to his phone number, still listed on the museum's website, went unanswered. He escaped last June from prison where he was serving time for embezzling 10 million Czech crowns from the Prague branch of

Gasoline-loving spiders cause car recall

For the second time in three years, Mazda Motor Corp has issued a recall for Mazda6 sedans in North America because of a spider that likes the smell of gasoline and weaves a web that blocks a vent in the engine. Mazda told U.S. regulators that it is recalling 42,000 sedans with 2.5-liter engines from model years 2010 to 2012 in the United States. Mazda officials were not immediately available to report recalls outside of the United States. Three years ago, Mazda recalled about 65,000 Mazda6 sedans in North America from model

years 2009 and 2010, also because of spider webs blocking evaporative canister vent lines. The same issue is the cause of the most recent recall, Mazda told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The web weaved by a spider can lead to a restriction of fuel flow, which in turn can reduce fuel tank pressure when the emission control system purges vapors from the evaporative canister. This can put stress on the fuel tank, which may crack and leak fuel, increasing the risk of a fire, a report filed with NHTSA says. Mazda said it is not aware of any fires because of this risk. In 2011, Reuters reported that the Yellow Sac spider was the culprit in that year's recall. It just likes the smell of gasoline, an auto analyst told Reuters at the time. Mazda attempted to remedy the problem by adding a spring to the canister vent line to keep spiders

The

Q

For the most part, that solution worked, but after several reports of cracked fuel tanks in sedans equipped with the spring, Mazda engineers tried to figure out the spider's route to the canister. After learning of nine cases in which tanks were damaged even though a spring was loaded, engineers determined that a change in the car's software would keep tanks from cracking even if a spider web blocks a vent. Mazda will inform owners in the recall campaign to bring cars to dealers, where the evaporative canister vent line will be checked and cleared if necessary. Also, the dealerships will reprogram software. The blockage is not present on other models made by Mazda and occurs only in cars made a plant in Flat Rock, Michigan, at which Mazda once produced cars jointly with Ford Motor Co. Mazda stopped production of cars at Flat Rock in August 2012.

R.E.M. released its first single, "Radio Free Europe", in 1981 on the independent record labelHib-Tone. The single was followed by the Chronic TownEP in 1982, the band's first release on I.R.S. Records. In 1983, the group released its critically acclaimed debut album, Murmur, and built its reputation over the next few years through subsequent releases, constant touring, and the support of college radio. Following years of underground success, R.E.M. achieved a mainstream hit in 1987 with the single "The One I Love". The group signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1988, and began to espouse political and environmental concerns while playing large arenas worldwide. By the early 1990s, when alternative rock began to experience broad mainstream success, R.E.M. was viewed by subsequent acts such as Nirvana and Pavement as a pioneer of the genre and released its two most commercially successful albums, catapulting them to international fame, Out of Time (1991) and Automatic for the People (1992), which veered from the band's established sound. R.E.M.'s 1994 release, Monster, was a return to a more rock-oriented sound, but still continued their run of success. The band began its first tour in six years to support the album; the t o u r w a s marred by m e d i c a l emergencies suffered by

10Apr - 16 Apr 2014

Taurus Apr 21 - May 21 People say 'anything is easy one you know how to do it'. That's a bit of a dismissive statement, when you think about it. It overlooks the learning curve attached to whatever is now deemed 'easy'. You're likely finding yourself in a unique and enviable position. You could be surprising yourself with how 'easy' certain issues and obstacles that have prevented you from making progress or enjoying certain levels of stability and comfort are becoming. You're applying lessons learned to what needs dealing with now. Expect evidence of this during this week.

Libra Sep 24 - Oct 23 How much experience do you have of 'pacing yourself'? Anyone who knows anything about physical exertion will know how and why it's necessary. It's important to bear the need to do so in mind now in light a perceived need to act with some degree of urgency toward something that gives a very good impression of requiring urgent attention. If you're able to look beyond the issue at a much bigger picture, then you're likely to see reasons why you don't need to act or respond as hastily as you might believe you do. This week, make a point of looking at that bigger picture. Scorpio Oct 24 - Nov 22 'I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish that He didn't trust me so much.' Those words said by Mother Teresa are, in many ways, relevant to you now. Your current issue is not something you cannot handle and you could be overlooking how much help is actually on offer to you to bring about a more than satisfactory resolution. You are being helped by a very kind and caring cosmos now. You can make a significant stride in an area that is causing concern. Accept the help available to you and you'll soon gain some much needed perspective.

Gemini May 22 - Jun 22 It's not uncommon for plays shown in theaters to have interludes or intermissions. Performers and audiences benefit from these because both often need a break from intense focus. With that in mind, look closely at what or whom has been the recipient of your focus of late and how in need of a break from such levels of attention you have felt. The cosmos has provided you with some respite. Now, need exists for you to return to what or whom needs your attention and effort. You've learned something valuable recently and it's time to apply that useful knowledge.

Sagittarius Nov 23 - Dec 21 'Courage is knowing what not to fear'. So said Plato a long time ago. It's interesting the great philosopher recognized we all experience fear. His comment surrounds the need to be discriminating about what we choose to be fearful of. That, in itself, is an act of courage. Need exists now for you to be discerning about what makes you fearful and what the best and most effective way of tackling the fear is. Soon, you will see how little you do have to be fearful of. For now, all you need to do is have faith in your ability to minimize what currently appears daunting.

Cancer Jun 23 - Jul 23

Leo Jun 24 - Aug 23 People say the funniest things. They also say the most infuriating things. On top of all that, they don't always say what they mean or mean what they say. We're constantly having to assess what we're being told and which category what we're being told fits within. This week brings a need to scrutinize what you're being told and extracting from it what levels of truth, honesty and helpfulness exist. To do this, you don't need to apply considerable concentration or focus. You simply need to be flexible and accommodating. Your instincts won't fail you.

Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 20 Here we are, in yet another month. If you look outside, things might appear differently but in your head and heart, you're aware of how little is likely to have changed or change. You understandably believe the same issues will carry on and you'd better get used to the idea. But, coming weeks are going to be extraordinarily different. This week, your ruling planet plays an integral role in kicking off a series of life changing aspects that will undoubtedly involve you. Not only is April about to be different. From this week, you're being freed and given reason to feel much more optimistic. Aquarius Jan 21 - Feb 19 When travelling by plane on holiday, we sometimes see the tediousness surrounding airports and all that they involve as exciting and very much part of the holiday itself. Unless our airport experiences are less than pleasurable, we accept the role they play in a holiday we've looked forward to with great anticipation. In a similar way, you're being prepared for a journey of sorts. You're having to go through certain levels of tediousness, adhering to certain protocols and systems. Soon though, and from this week, the journey you've anticipated will begin.

Virgo Aug 24 - Sep 23 To transform a molehill into a mountain, the strategy is relatively straightforward. All that needs to be determined is how big the mountain ought to be. But before gets addressed, it is more important to ascertain why the mountain needs to be created in the first place. Is it necessary for you to make a bigger issue out of something that doesn't warrant such attention? Might you be worrying unnecessarily in the belief that making an issue bigger will make it easier to tackle in some way? Step back from an issue to see it clearly. Then let a solution come to you.

Pisces Feb 20 - Mar 20 Is a certain situation too good to be true? What if someone comes along and deliberately sticks a proverbial spanner in the works or life hurls a curve ball that requires quick thinking on your part? What if the situation unfolding now that smacks so much of what you need and have wanted for so long is just a mirage or something that fully intends to take you straight back to where you refuse to return to? It's important you push aside such negative thoughts and doubts. You're in a very strong and wonderful position as coming events this week will confirm.

Aries Mar 21 - Apr 20 Here we are, in April, a very pivotal and controversial month astrologically. A series of powerful alignments signify important and far-reaching change and your ruling planet Uranus plays a central role in what is unfolding. This week marks the start of this process and if you're not already aware of a noticeable feeling of change, then you will do, soon enough. It's becoming clear that one particular decision cannot be postponed any longer. A decision needs to be reached and an important conversation had. Don't resist the need to do both now.

How frustrating would it be if authors or filmmakers released versions of their creations with different endings? What if they decided their original ending wasn't as good or interesting as a new one that occurred to them? The rest of us might have been happy with the ending to a certain tale and resent the idea that we're now being asked to reconsider something we're comfortable with. Something similar is happening in your world now. The coming week hints at a change to a situation you believe to be set in stone. Don't be too quick to dismiss it.

American rock b a n d fro m Athens, Georgia, formed in 1980 by singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bassist Mike Mills, and drummer Bill Berry. One of the first popular alternative rock bands, R.E.M. gained early attention because of Buck's ringing, arpeggiated guitar style and Stipe's unclear vocals.

three band members. In 1996, R.E.M. re-signed with Warner Bros. for a reported US$80 million, at the time the most expensive recording contract in history. Their 1996 release, New Adventures in Hi-Fi, though critically acclaimed, fared worse commercially than expected. The following year, Bill Berry left the band, while Buck, Mills, and Stipe continued the group as a trio. Through some changes in musical style, the band continued its career into the next decade with mixed critical and commercial success, despite having sold over 85 million records worldwide. In 2007, the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. R.E.M. disbanded amicably in September 2011, announcing the split on its website.

Family Planning 10 Things to Do with Your Kids on a Bali Holiday Conde Nast Traveller has published a list of ten things for people visiting Bali with their children to do. Some of the options included in their list and other options are: Sea Walking: Club Aqua Bali (For ages 9 to 12) Suitable for people who can't swim and with no previous diving experience, children (and their parents) can walk on the ocean's bottom viewing the sea life at depths of 3-5 meters using special breathing apparatuses. Adventure Time: Bali Treetop (For ages 4 to 17) ]located in Bedugul, in the cooler mountain lake district of Bali, families with children as young as four can literally swing from tree to tree. A special Squirrel Yellow Circuit has been designed for the very youngest set (aged 4 to 8 years). Be sure to try the footbridge, monkey track, fishing net and mini Flying fox. Up Close with the wildlife: Bali Zoo (For ages 2 to 14) Located a short distance from Bali's capital of Denpasar, the Bali Zoo features a petting area in addition to its extensive display of exotic wildlife. White water rafting: Bali SOBEK and Bali Adventure Tours (For ages 7 to 15). Bali two leading white-water operators offer rafting adventures on the Ayung River and Telaga Waja River suitable for families with children as young as 7 year of age. Trips range for 1.5 to 2.5 hours and include a delicious lunch. A natural education: Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary (For ages 3 to 12) – Bali has a number of unique temples that serve as sacred preserves for tribes of monkeys. Hang on to your glasses, camera and pocket contents that are often flinched by the cheeky monkeys. Rent a Car with Driver for an Entire

'Human skin' found to be sheepskin A 17th century book owned by Harvard Law School, thought to have been bound in human skin because of an inscription that referred to a man "flayed alive," has been shown through scientific testing to have been bound in sheepskin. The binding material of the Spanish law book published in 1605-1606 was determined after an analysis of nine samples of its front and back covers, binding and glue, Karen Beck, a rare books curator at Harvard Law School Library, said last week. The Harvard conservation scientist who conducted the testing used a technique for identifying proteins called peptide mass fingerprinting to differentiate the samples from other parchment sources such as cattle, deer, goat and human skin, Beck wrote in a post on the Harvard Law School Library blog. The glue was found to consist of cattle and pig collagen. Curators, dermatologists and others had studied the book for years because of a suggestive inscription on its last page that reads: "The binding of this book is all that remains of my dear friend Jonas Wright, who was flayed alive by the Wavuma on the Fourth Day of

August, 1632. King Mbesa did give me the book, it being one of poor Jonas chief possessions, together with ample of his skin to bind it. Requiescat in pace." The book arrived at Harvard Law School in 1946, Beck said. It may have had a different binding at some point in its history, according to Beck, possibly explaining the mention of 1632 on a book published 1605-06. Beck questioned why anyone would have written such an inscription if Jonas Wright was actually the name of a sheep and said the inscription instead may have been the product of someone's macabre imagination. The book and its sheepskin binding are being digitized and will be available through the university's online library system later this year. The practice of binding books in human skin, called anthropodermic bibliopegy, was

once somewhat common and has been done since at least the 16th century, according to a Harvard library blog post. Criminals' confessions were occasionally bound in the skin of the convicted or individuals may have asked to be memorialized for family or lovers in the form of a book bound in their skin, it said. Harvard has two other books thought to be bound in human skin, including a meditation on the soul published by French writer ArsèneHoussaye in the 19th century, and an edition of Ovid's Metamorphoses published in the 16th century, said Heather Cole, an assistant curator at the university's Houghton Library. "There's large pores on the front of it," she said of the Houssaye volume, adding that books are typically bound in calf or sheep leather. "It looks different than the normal kinds of leathers we use to bind books." Cole said the book contained a note from a doctor who was a friend of the author that said a book about the human soul deserves a human covering. The skin was from a female mental patient who had died of a stroke, she said, though it was unclear whether she was his patient.

Woman frozen alive in morgue A California appeals court has revived a malpractice suit brought by the family of an 80-year-old grandmother they claim was prematurely declared dead by doctors then frozen alive inside a body bag in the hospital's morgue. A lower-court judge had dismissed the lawsuit brought in May 2012 by relatives of Maria de Jesus Arroyo against White Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles over the woman's 2010 death, on grounds that the statute of limitations had lapsed. But a three-judge panel of a state appeals court sided with the family on Wednesday in agreeing they could not have known how Arroyo was alleged to have died until it was brought to light by a pathologist in an expert opinion he gave in December 2011. "Plaintiffs had absolutely no reason to suspect that the decedent was alive rather than dead when placed in the hospital morgue," the court said in its 27page opinion. The lawsuit now goes back to Los Angeles Superior Court. The origins of the case date to July 26, 2011, when doctors at the hospital pronounced Arroyo dead from cardiac arrest shortly

44

after she was brought there by ambulance. Employees of a funeral home chosen by the family to pick up the woman's remains from the hospital morgue later discovered her lying face down in a body bag half-unzipped, with bruises and gashes to her face and a broken nose, according to the court record. Informed by the mortuary of the body's condition, family members who had seen Arroyo's face without injuries just after she was pronounced dead assumed her corpse had been mishandled by hospital morgue workers. The family went on to file a negligence suit in January 2011 claiming the hospital was to blame for mutilating their loved one's body. But Dr. William Manion, a New Jersey pathologist, retained by the family as an expert witness reviewed medical records and sworn statements of hospital personnel and reached a far more horrific conclusion.

He said Arroyo had been prematurely declared dead and was placed alive in the freezer of the hospital morgue where she eventually regained consciousness due to the extreme cold and "damaged her face and turned herself face down as s h e s t r u g g l e d unsuccessfully to escape her frozen tomb." As a result, the family dropped its original lawsuit and filed a new claim accusing the hospital of malpractice and wrongful death. "It really has to be your worst nightmare to wake up like that, the worst way to die," the family's lawyer, Scott Schutzman, said on Thursday. "Can you imagine trying to get out of a zippered bag?" The hospital declined in a brief statement to comment on the case, except to say that "we continue to disagree with the allegations being made." "We followed all proper protocols in the matter, and are confident that once the facts of the case are reviewed we will prevail in court," the statement said. Schutzman said the family has "no choice" but to go to trial, as "there has never been a settlement offer in this case." He said he expects the case to reach trial within a year.
