BALI THE RIGHT WAY Gday again to all the loyal readers of the newspaper and welcome to another weekly blurt. An amazing week in the footy tipping with me thinking I was special getting the full tote for the week until I looked at the board and saw that everyone else did the same thing (almost everyone else) and I believe the Ferret even got the margin call for the Friday night game.. Speaking of which was a good one and while I sat with a few good friends and enjoyed the all you can eat roast at the Kuta Town Houses, I enjoyed a great conversation with an old mate about living and working in Bali. Old mate went on to explain how they were sick and a little bit tired of people thinking they have this special life of luxury while living here as the waves lap up on the lawn of their house and they spend all day sipping pina coladas and having their toes rubbed. They went on to say that if anyone that visits them up here again tells them that “they are lucky” they will explode. I guess to a major extent I believe what they are saying as when you are working and living in Bali it is exactly that, your working. It's not an endless cocktail drinking, massage having, relaxation time, it's a job. aliasj@kutaweekly.com

For many of the people that come and visit, they are here on holidays and they don't have to get up and roll to work every day. These are actually the lucky ones and they get to sleep in and have a restaurant breakfast when they surface. They stay out all night at some of the best party spots the island has to offer and generally have a swag of cash to support a 2-3 week run having fun. For us folk that stay and work here it is a constant battle with the language barrier, unless of course you are smart enough to learn the lingo, and its also a constant battle with the culture which really does take some learning. Things are so different from back home and I guess after a while you crave those silly things that we've grow up knowing as standard, for instance drinking the water from the tap, electricity bills being sent by mail, a structured and adhered to road system, why it was only the other day I saw a bumper sticker on a car that said “Im a vet which means I can drive like an animal” which got me thinking and I now realize how many gynecologists there are on the roads here. It's a completely different kettle of fish living in South East Asia, and one that for many of us that do stick around tend to warm to after a while. It is a great place to live if you are patient and can let a lot of things slide, but, if you're a motivated individual and you want to reinvent the wheel, don't bother. Things are done at a pace that one could say reinvents the word slow and if you try to make it happen any faster it will take even longer. Take a deep breath, relax and enjoy the island for exactly what it is. On the flip side of the coin, if you are looking for a place to retire, it is arguably one of the best places in the world to do so. The Balinese make the place roll at a constant pace (perfect for the mature gentleman) Not much worries these lot and they have very long relaxing lives. At the end of the day it's a great place to be and when you do slow down and take the time to “smell the roses” things don't seem that hard to deal with. Ok folks that's about my lot for this week. Next week we have a few new sponsors that are jumping and have already jumped on board so I would like to introduce these businesses to you. We are a local paper and without the sponsors we simply couldn't get the rag out to you all each week. Be sure to track us down on Facebook and hit the “like” button please, as we have just passed the 500 mark and will now punch forward till we get to 1000. In closing I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and try to always remember, "There is no such thing as a weird human being, it's just that some people require more understanding than others." Enjoy your week. ALIASJ…………

Beggars' Banquet Bali's Capital of Denpasar Studying from Banjarmasin, Kalimantan on How to Reduce Street Beggars and Vagrants The State News Agency Antara reports that officials from Bali's capital city of Denpasar are studying strategies and tactics used to reduce street beggars and vagrants practiced in the South Kalimantan city of Banjarmasin. A Denpasar municipal official, Ketut Mister during a visit to Banjarmasin said, “The problem of managing beggars (in Banjarmasin) is not much different with what we experience (in Bali). Today the mode of operations of beggars has changed; they use coordinators.” According to Mister, local regulations to prevent, deter, capture and educate beggars, while persuading the public not to hand money out to street urchins has done little to actually reduce the number of beggars on Bali's streets.

And, while Banjarmasin faces much the same situation as Bali, that South Kalimantan community has been more successful in keeping beggars off their streets by introducing a series of “halfway” houses where beggars and street urchins apprehended by the police must spend a period of "training" before being returned to their home cities. Miter admitted that Denpasar does not yet have halfway houses for beggars and street urchins due to a lack of available land to accommodate the construction of such facilitates. A Banjarmasin city official, Rusdiansyah, told the visiting Denpasar officials that substantial funds are needed to handle the problems of beggars and street urchins. “We have a half-way house where the beggars are placed (before returning home) to act as a deterrent and as a place of training. But this requires funding for consumables

and our budget is limited,” explained Rusdiansyah. Agus Surono, the head of Social Services for Banjarmasin said the halfway houses are also used for housing the mentally ill. “At this time, our halfway house has 29 mentally ill people in residence,” said Surono. Both Banjarmasin and Denpasar say that the majority of beggars and street urchins originate from areas outside the city in which they operate, with many hailing from areas outside the province. www.balidiscovery.com

Keeping it Simple Government Cuts a Hasty Retreat on Plans for TwoTiered Price Increase for Gasoline. Expect Higher Gas Prices in May Suara Pembaruan reports that the government is cutting a hasty retreat from plans to introduce a twotiered price structure this May at gasoline pumps, changing their original plans to establish lower prices for motorcycles and higher prices for four-wheeled vehicles. The price hike is sought by the government in an effort to reduce the massive subsidy presently being absorbed by the State budget. After the two-tiered pricing approach was widely criticized from many quarters of Indonesian society, the Government has reportedly decided to soon announce a single price for premium gas at the petro pumps. The price, yet to be confirmed, will probably be a figure

42

less than Rp. 6,500 (US$0.65) per liter to be charged to all vehicles for premium gasoline. Jero Wacik, Indonesia's Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, said: “The possibility is that there will be a single price in accordance with the people's wishes, perhaps a price below Rp. 6,500 per liter.” Wacik said the government must raise the price of gasoline to reduce the burden of the fuel subsidy, but asked the public for time to properly consider the final decision. Continuing, Wacik said: “The Government has listened to the opinions of the people. The public knew there were two levels of pricing being considered for the the price of fuel. Many of the public told us it would be difficult (to have two prices). We (the government) would also face difficulties. We considered all these opinions.” Separately, the Coordinating Minister for the Economy, Hatta Rajasa, told the press that the

Government is still studying introducing a single price increase for gasoline. Said Hatta: “We are studying one price (for gasoline). Actually, two-tiered pricing is the best solution, but operationally that would be very difficult.” Many gas station operators in Indonesia have asked the government to use a single price system. www.balidiscovery.com

A Tourism Cycle efforts to expand bike budget for the bike lanes Bali Capital of Denpasar p a t h s in Denpasar were in the past few years.

Promoted as a way of reducing both traffic congestion and pollution, a 16.4-kilometer stretch of curb side bike paths were originally marked with painted lines and identified with suitable signage. In the intervening three years plans to expand the network were feared to have been largely forgotten and the bike paths are now blocked by parked cars and motorcycles.

congested streets. “We are unable to enforce regulations that ban on-street parking, because we receive little backup from the traffic police,” he said. “Most walkways (sidewalks) also end up as parking space, anyway,” he lamented. Citing examples, he pointed to Jl. Gajah Mada and Jl. Kamboja – two streets that have wide sidewalks that are now used instead for offstreet parking. Bali is largely an unfriendly destination for pedestrians with a low level of “walkability” in the man downtown areas of the city. City officials in Bali cite Pattaya in Thailand as an example where good governance can make a real difference by banning traffic in certain areas and providing viable public transport alternatives. www.balidiscovery.com

Bono's one-time Sydney holiday home sells for record $55.4 million A Sydney harbor front mansion has been sold for a record-setting A$54 million ($55.4 million) to a Chineseborn businessman, reinforcing the city's growing status as a hot property destination. On the market for six years, the luxurious eightbedroom "Altona" in exclusive Point Piper was bought in a secret deal with the businessman who currently lives in Melbourne. The property and its heated waterside pool and

boathouse, rented by U2 rock star Bono in 2006 for a family holiday, was last sold in 2002 for A$28 million. While Australian capital city home prices rose by only 1.3

percent in March, top end Sydney properties have attracted strong interest from Chinese buyers, and almost three in four international sales have gone to Asian buyers in recent years. The Altona sale beat the previous Sydney property sale record of A$45 million, but fell short of the national record of A$57.5 million paid in 2009 by mining services magnate Chris Ellison for a sprawling riverfront home in Perth.

Aries – March 21 to April 20

Libra – September 24 to October 23

Show me the money! You've been talking about saving for something big [like a car, holiday or home deposit] for ages but now, with the solar eclipse stimulating your finance zone, it's time to put your money where your mouth is and actually start saving. Mercury links up with Mars on Wednesday, when your words can cut through in creative ways … or cut like a knife.

With six planets stirring up your $$$ zones, money matters are on your mind. The stars have a simple suggestion for luxuryloving Librans … save more, and spend less! Your considerable diplomatic skills may also be called on, as family members squabble over finances. Friday's solar eclipse in Taurus encourages you to be practical, as you turn your dreams into reality.

Taurus – April 21 to May 21 Don't be a shy and bashful Bull! With the solar eclipse, Mercury, Venus and Mars all moving through your sign, it's time to be brazenly bold and beautiful as you take on challenges with Taurean tenacity. Aim to be smart, stable and sexy … rather than self-indulgent and super stubborn. Friday favors a fresh start, as you head off in an exciting new direction.

Gemini – May 22 to June 21 Lightning flashes of inspiration make for an exciting week. But there's a tendency to rush in and say things you really don't mean. Think before you speak, otherwise you'll end up [unintentionally] upsetting others. Venus vamps into your sign [from May 10-June 3] so it's time to be fabulously flirtatious and irresistibly charming. Singles … an old romance could be rekindled.

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22 The course of true love won't run smoothly. If you are attached, adjustments must be made [on both sides] as you strive to be honest about your concerns and expectations. Looking for love? You'll have to be proactive. Scorpios are in detective mode on Thursday but be careful with secrets you unearth, as they may stir up issues from your own less-than-perfect past.

Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21 Fiery Sagittarians are honest and forthright [some would say blunt and insensitive]. With Mercury hooking up with Mars midweek, you'll have an increased tendency to shoot from the hip [or rather the lip] with guns blazing. So think carefully before you speak, otherwise you could end up in hot water! Sunday is super for travel, study and socializing.

Cancer – June 22 to July 23

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20

Networking with people from far-flung places opens doors and sends lucky opportunities your way this week Crabs. But think twice before you pass on secrets and unsubstantiated gossip! Friday's solar eclipse in Taurus will help settle your fluctuating emotions. If you tune into a quiet, still place within then you'll feel more calm and confident on

With Friday's solar eclipse in your drama zone it's time to clear your throat and find yourself a captive audience. Capricorns love to have the last word but avoid pointless debate with family members, as Mercury and Mars activate your argumentative side. It's not just what you say this week … it's how you say it. The weekend is wonderful for relaxing with friends.

Leo – July 24 to August 23

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

What should you do when the solar eclipse stirs up your career zone? It's the ideal time for ambitious Cats to pounce, as professional plans and projects suddenly jump into the fast lane. But have you done all the preparation required, or have you been a lazy Lion? Aim to be more proactive at work – and don't postpone attending to a pressing domestic problem either.

Keep the conversation light and lively this week, and steer clear of controversial subjects. Friday's solar eclipse is a time of magical beginnings. Family and home life are the areas where you need to make some positive changes and adjustments – the sooner the better! You'll also be motivated to fix up something around the house, or patch up a problematic relationship with a relative.

Virgo – August 24 to September 23 Virgo – do you have to be so virtuous, and such a stickler for doing things the right way? This week the stars encourage you to loosen up, and take a walk on the [mildly] wild side as you explore and experiment with a spontaneous new style. Be inspired by birthday great Katharine Hepburn “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” Take loved ones along for the ride.

Pisces – February 20 to March 20 You need to be clear and straightforward in the way you communicate with others this week. Don't waste precious time pussyfooting around, or being 'creative' with the truth. With six planets in earth signs, it's time to be a more practical Pisces. By all means escape into a fabulous fantasy world – but make sure you can step back into reality when it's required!

The American and South African study studied genetic samples from 15 pregnant female sharks which had died after being caught in shark nets off the coast of South Africa. The study published in Biology Letters showed 10 of the sharks carried just two embryos, while the other five, in an earlier stage of pregnancy, had between five and seven embryos in utero.

practice was an evolutionary strategy allowing the most aggressive male sharks to father the surviving embryos, and thus outdo their sexual rivals. "It's exactly the same sort of DNA testing that you might see on MauryPovich to figure out how many dads there are," Chapman told LiveScience, referring to the American TV talk show host. "And basically, that loser father ultimately provided food for a rival male." It has been known since the 1980s that shark foetuses cannibalised each other in utero with one scientific legend relating how a shark embryo bit a researcher's hand during a dissection but scientists hadn't known why.

Eagles back to winning ways against Dogs

Dear Martha, I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice. I have suspected for some time now that my wife has been cheating on me. The usual signs are phone rings, but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife has been going out with “the girls” a lot recently, although when I ask their names she always says, “Just some friends from work, you don't know them…” I always try to stay awake to look out for her coming home, but I usually fall asleep. Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and I decided to really check on her. Around midnight, I decided to hide next to the garage behind my boat so I could get a good view of the whole street when she arrived home from a night out with “the girls”. When she got out of the car she was buttoning up her blouse, which was open, and she took her panties out of her purse and slipped them on it was at that moment, crouching behind the boat, that I noticed some hairline cracks in the hull, right where the aluminum of the hull meets the transom. Is this something I can fix myself or should I take the boat into the yard for repairs? A Concerned Boaty

West Coast Eagles returned to something resembling their best with a dominant 70point win over the Western Bulldogs at Subiaco on Sunday evening. J o h n Worsfold's men were embarrassed last week when they gave up a 41-point lead late in the third quarter to lose to Port Adelaide at Football Park. This week the Eagles made sure they did not take the foot off the pedal, kicking five goals to two in the final term to run out convincing winners, 21.11 (137) to 10.7 (67). West Coast's forwards had a field day, with Jack Darling kicking five goals in the first half, and Josh Kennedy kicking four in the second half. Ruck/forward Dean Cox also had four majors while Mark Le Cras kicked three. The other highlight for the Eagles was the return of Nic

Naitanui from injury with a strong performance off the substitute's bench. The Bulldogs lacked the forward firepower to keep up with the home side, with Clay Smith

the leading goalkicker with two. LeCras had 19 disposals and nine marks to go with his three goals, although his kicking was a little erratic. He said the win was an important sign of improvement for the Eagles. "We've been pretty disappointed with our efforts for the last couple of weeks," he said.

"But we were really pleased with how we went (today)." LeCras denied the playing group had been entertaining doubts about the season after starting the year with just one win from five rounds before this week. "No, we're still confident about the rest of the year," he said. "If we do get into the finals ... we've got the sort of list that can do quite a bit of damage." L e C r a s described Naitanui's return as "massive" for the club, saying he had given the Eagles a lot of spark when he came on as a sub. He also pointed to the mix of players in the forward line as a positive for West Coast,with the likes of Darling, Cox and Kennedy in excellent form. "One thing that the forward line has got is that we've got quite a few options that can get goals," he said. "It's really exciting.

Karate masters 'have psychic abilities' Researchers have found karate masters can anticipate where an attack is coming from before their opponent has even moved and are now studying whether elite cricketers have the same ability. A joint study by Murdoch University in Western Australian and RMIT University in Melbourne has found karate masters are able to anticipate how an opponent will strike even before that opponent has moved a muscle. By comparing novices, state level competitors and international karate stars, it found experts and near-experts gathered vital visual information earlier than novices. Most surprising was the

level of anticipation by experts who had a unique ability to use information from an opponent in a completely still stance, Murdoch University's Dr Sean Muller said.

“In the world of professional sports, the difference between standing on the podium and being on the sidelines comes down to milliseconds and centimetres, so

athletes need every advantage they can get,” he said. The researchers are now working with Cricket Australia to look at how, and at what point, a batsman recognises a bowler's delivery, in a bid to improve coaching. “If we can understand how an elite cricketer can recognise, say, a bouncer, we can arm coaches with methods to help up-andcoming batsmen reach their maximum potential,” Dr Muller says. Work is also being done with Australian Baseball League team Perth Heat to compare visual cues in baseball and cricket, and determine how experts strike a baseball.

More pain for Demons in loss to Carlton

PT “KUTA WEEKLY”

Welcome to the Kuta Weekly's “TUNED

IN” Music page

The following is a myth busting info page covering different songs or bands each week chosen by one of our many loyal readers, Please Enjoy……The Alan Parsons Project “Eye in The Sky”

The Alan Parsons Project The Alan Parsons Project were a Britishprogressive rockband, active between 1975 and 1990, consisting of singer Eric Woolfson and keyboardist Alan Parsons surrounded by a varying number of session musicians. Behind the revolving lineup and the regular sidemen, the true core of the Project was the duo of Parsons and Woolfson. Woolfson was a songwriter by profession, but also a composer and pianist. Parsons was a successful producer and accomplished engineer. Almost all songs on the band's albums are credited to "Woolfson/Parsons". History Alan Parsons met Eric Woolfson in the canteen of Abbey Road Studios in the summer of 1974. Parsons had already acted as assistant engineer on the Beatles' Abbey Road and Let It Be, had recently engineered Pink Floyd'sThe Dark Side of the Moon, and had produced several acts for EMI Records. Woolfson, a songwriter and composer, was working as a session pianist; he had also composed material for a concept album idea based on the work of Edgar Allan Poe. Parsons asked Woolfson to become his manager and Woolfson managed Parsons' career as a producer and engineer through a string of successes including Pilot, Steve Harley, Cockney Rebel, John Miles, Al Stewart, Ambrosia and The Hollies. Parsons commented at the time that he felt frustrated in having to accommodate the views of some of the musicians, which he felt interfered with his production. Woolfson came up with the idea of making an album based on developments in the film industry, where directors such as Alfred Hitchcock and Stanley Kubrick were the focal point of the film's promotion, rather than individual film stars. If the film industry was becoming a director's medium, Woolfson felt the music business might well become a producer's medium. Recalling his earlier Edgar Allan Poe material, Woolfson saw a way to combine his and Parsons' respective talents. Parsons would produce and engineer songs written by the two, and the Alan Parsons Project was born. Their first album, Tales of Mystery and Imagination, including major contributions by all members of Pilot and Ambrosia, was a success, reaching the Top 40 in the USBillboard 200chart. The song "The Raven" featured lead vocals by the actor Leonard Whiting, and, according to the 2007 remastered album liner notes, was the first rock song to use a digitalvocoder, with Alan Parsons speaking lyrics through it. Arista Records then signed The Alan Parsons Project for further albums. Through the late 1970s and early 1980s, the group's popularity continued to grow (although they were always more popular in North America and Continental Europe than in their home country, never achieving a UK Top 40 single or Top 20 album). The singles "I Wouldn't Want to Be Like You", "Games People Play", "Damned If I Do", "Time" (Woolfson's first lead vocal), "Eye in the Sky" and "Don't Answer Me" had a notable impact on the Billboard Hot 100. After those successes, however, the group began to fade from view. There were fewer hit singles, and declining album sales. 1987's Gaudi was the Project's last release, though they planned to record an

album called Freudiana next. Although the studio version of Freudiana was produced by Parsons (and featured the regular Project backing musicians, making it an 'unofficial' Project album), it was primarily Woolfson's idea to turn it into a musical. This eventually led to a rift between the two artists. While Parsons pursued his own solo career and took many members of the Project on the road for the first time in a successful worldwide tour, Woolfson went on to produce musical plays influenced by the Project's music. Freudiana, Gaudi and Gambler were three musicals that included some Project songs like "Eye in the Sky", "Time", "Inside Looking Out", and "Limelight". The live music from Gambler was only distributed at the performance site in Mönchengladbach, Germany. In 1981, Parsons, Woolfson and their record label Arista, were stalled in contract renegotiations when on 5 March the two submitted an all-instrumental atonal album tentatively titled 'The Sicilian Defence' (the name of an aggressive opening move in chess), arguably to get out of their recording contract. Arista's refusal to release the album had two known effects: the negotiations led to a renewed contract and the album was never released.

Alan Parsons Project Eye In The Sky Lyrics Don't think sorry's easily said Don't try turning tables instead You've taken lots of Chances before But I ain't gonna give anymore Don't ask me That's how it goes Cause part of me knows what you're thinkin' Don't say words you're gonna regret Don't let the fire rush to your head I've heard the accusation before And I ain't gonna take any more Believe me The sun in your Eyes Made some of the lies worth believing Chorus: I am the eye in the sky Looking at you I can read your mind I am the maker of rules Dealing with fools I can cheat you blind And I don't need to see any more To know that I can read your mind, I can read your mind Don't leave false illusions behind Don't Cry cause I ain't changing my mind So find another fool like before Cause I ain't gonna live anymore believing Some of the lies while all of the Signs are deceiving

Melbourne did not lead all day as the Blues kicked five goals to none in the first term and never looked back, winning 18.13 (121) to 8.12 (60). T h e news got worse for Melbourne with Dees cocaptain Jack Grimes taken to hospital after being taken from the ground in the first quarter in extreme pain with a shoulder injury. The AFL website reported that coach Mark Neeld confirmed after the match that Grimes had broken his collarbone and would miss up to eight weeks, meaning he is unlikely to return until after the Demons' round 12 bye. The result was the third time in six matches this year that the Demons had been held to eight goals or less. After being held goalless in the opening term, Melbourne

played their best football of the match in the second quarter, where they outscored the Blues by a point to trail by 27 at half-time. But it was largely one-

way traffic in the second half, with Carlton piling on another 10 goals to five to win easily. The Blues' attack looked much more balanced with the inclusion of key-position player Jarrad Waite, playing his first senior game of the year after recovering from a calf injury. The Blues dominated possessions, hit-outs and inside

Morris injury compounds Dragons' defeat St George Illawarra was left to rue Jamie Soward's kicking game and an injury to winger Brett Morris after losing 24-18 to Manly at Kogarah for the first time in 16 years. To make matters worse for both Dragons coach Steve Price and New South Wales mentor

Laurie Daley, winger Brett Morris left the field early on with a suspected knee injury. Morris made an unsuccessful dive for a try in the left corner and stayed down after being tackled by Manly counterpart David Williams. He ended up hobbling off the park and up the tunnel with a trainer's help, and the Dragons camp revealed little about the nature of the injury. Daley was relieved earlier on Monday when workhorse Blues skipper Paul Gallen was cleared of serious knee damage resulting from Cronulla's goldenpoint win over Newcastle on Sunday. But his good day got even worse after Morris's injury gave way to the absence of star Manly and New South Wales full-back Brett Stewart, who did not emerge from the sheds after half-time nursing a hip complaint. The Sea Eagles came into the game having lost their last five at Jubilee Oval, the last time coming in 1997 when St George and Illawarra were still separate clubs. That time the visitors triumphed 18-14 and on Monday night that was the scoreline for much of the second half as the Dragons cut down a 14-point halftime deficit and had much of the momentum. But despite the efforts of Nathan Green, Michael Weyman and Chase Stanley, who all scored second-half four-pointers, the Sea Eagles got on top with 10 to play as Jorge Taufua crossed for Manly's fourth and final try. It could all have been level if not for a dismal night off the tee by Dragons pivot Soward, who kicked just one of four conversion attempts. It was all Manly in the first half as Jamie Lyon, David Williams and Matt Ballin all scored soft tries in the opening 20 minutes before Green scored the first of a double in the losing effort. Compounding the Dragons' woes, winger Daniel Vidot was put on report for a shoulder charge after he barged rampaging Sea Eagles prop Brenton Lawrence to the deck.

Secular Turks see red over airline's lipstick ban

Turkey's national airline has barred female flight attendants from wearing red lipstick and nail polish, striking a nerve among secular Turks worried the country is becoming more Islamic. Turkish Airlines, Europe's fourth-biggest carrier, said the ban was aimed at keeping crews "artless and well-groomed with makeup in pastel tones", as a natural look improved communication with passengers. "As a consequence of our current cabin uniforms not including red, dark pink, et cetera, the use of lipstick and nail polish in these colours by our cabin crew impairs visual integrity," the statement said. Turkish Airlines declined a request for further comment. The guideline follows other restrictions on employees' appearance and on serving alcohol. Critics say they reflect the influence of the government's conservative religious values at the fast-growing state-run airline, one of Turkey's most recognized brands. "This new guideline is totally down to Turkish Airlines management's desire to shape the company to fit its own political and ideological stance," AtilayAycin, president of the airline's Hava-Is labor union said. "No one can deny that Turkey has become a more conservative, religious country." Turkey is 99 percent

30

Muslim but the NATO state and European Union candidate has a secular constitution. Prime Minister TayyipErdogan's ruling AK Party, which traces its roots to a banned Islamic party, has relaxed the state's control over the expression of religion, such as once-strict limits imposed on wearing the Islamic-style headscarf. Such restrictions were aimed at reining in Islamism and improving women's rights, but effectively prevented many devout women from studying at university or taking government jobs. Turkish Airlines scrapped its own ban on the headscarf more than a year ago, and covered women now work at check-in counters and at other positions in the company, Aycin said. Other Turkish carriers also have guidelines on the appearance of cabin personnel. HIDDEN AGENDA? The flag carrier caused a stir earlier this year when newspapers published mockups of a new Ottoman-style uniform for stewardesses with anklelength dresses, a proposal the airline's management appears to have since abandoned. That was followed by a ban on alcohol on planes flying to most domestic destinations and some Islamic countries. "They are objecting to the lipstick and nail polish that we have been using for years," said AsliGokmen, 30, a flight attendant who lost her job with more than 300 others last year during a union protest and is

petitioning for her position back. No current employees were available for comment. Turks worried the government is undermining the country's secular order see a hidden agenda. On Twitter, women posted pictures after applying red lipstick. One wrote: "Why not just ban stewardesses altogether so we can all breathe a sigh of relief?" Some male Twitter users were indignant over the insinuation that red lipstick would induce a sexual frenzy. Turkish Airlines passenger AhmetYerli, 33, said he did not think the new guideline was a sign of creeping Islamization but that the ban was still "absurd." "I've never heard of a plane crashing because of a women's

Parallel parking epic goes viral A video of a woman taking half an hour to Parallel Park in a Belfast street has become an internet sensation. The BBC website reports that students living on the same street captured the scene on a mobile phone and uploaded it to YouTube, complete with their running commentary of the scene. They said the parking

saga began "a good 15 minutes" before they started filming. One of the students, Ciaran Doherty said,"I offered to park the car for her. I can't believe she couldn't get it in. It could easily have fitted a big people carrier in that space." The hapless driver receives a round of applause from her critical audience when the car is finally parked.

Wind farms to lure back German lobsters decimated by WW2 New wind farms off Germany's North Sea coast will provide an ideal habitat that could help restore the lobster population near Heligoland after British bombing during and after Wo r l d Wa r I I drove them away. Biologists at the Alfred-Wegener Institute for Polar a n d M a r i n e Research are breeding 3,000 lobsters to be released next year i n t o t h e BorkumRiffgat offshore wind farm near the island 70 km off the GermanDutch coast. The 1.5 square km island had a thriving fishing industry before it became a Nazi fortress in the war, pounded by Allied bombs, and then later used for target practice. It is now a tourist resort.

Billions of euros of investment in wind turbines as part of Germany's ambitious transition to renewable energy has given the scheme impetus. Lobsters, whose local

population is 90 percent smaller than it was 70 years ago, need a firm seabed to thrive. "The new wind parks mean lobsters may settle in a new habitat, because the stony foundations offer a favorable environment," project leader Heinz-Dieter Franke said.

The 700,000 euro ($923,500) scheme is funded by compensation paid to the state of Lower Saxony by utility EWE for any potential ecological damage caused by the construction of its wind park. The money will fund breeding, reintroduction and monitoring of the lobsters for roughly two years. " W i t h Germany's shift to renewables, we could have 5,000 wind farms by 2030, so if it works, this kind of project could have a huge effect on the lobster population," Franke said. He estimated that wind farms could help increase the lobster population to as many as 300,000 lobsters in the area around Heligoland in the long run from 50,000 to 100,000 now.

Retired racehorse finds calling as abstract painter The horse is an American icon. It races gracefully, performs heavy farm tasks, can do tricks and, if television is to be believed, may even talk. But only one is an accomplished painter. Metro Meteor, a 10-year-old thoroughbred bay in rural Maryland, is enjoying singular success. Within just months of applying his first brush stroke to paper, he is juggling requests for public appearances, weighing endorsement offers and earning thousands of dollars for his work. Slowed by bad knees, the racehorse was retired in 2009 and adopted by Ron and Wendy Krajewski. Unable to ride the crippled horse, Ron, a local artist, decided to teach the horse to paint in order to spend more time with him. Elephants are known to paint with their trunks, he reasoned, and Metro did tend to bob his head a lot while in his stall. The paintings caught on, and success ensued. Metro is now the best-selling artist at Gallery 30, a small shop in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, which started selling his work four months ago. Metro's paintings feature colourful, sweeping brushstrokes, complete with specks of sawdust not surprising as the horse paints by swinging his head, a paintbrush clenched in his teeth. "For his large paintings, there is a waiting list of 120," said Ron Krajewski in an interview this week. The larger acrylics, 20 inches by 20 inches (51 x 51 cms), sell for $850 at the gallery, he said, and smaller cut-down versions, 5 inches by 7 inches (12.7 x 17.8 cms), are $80. One of Metro's large paintings sold on eBay for more than $2,000, and bidding for another one on Friday was hovering at $800 with

28

only a few hours to go. In total, about 40 large and 150 small works have sold, adding up to more than $20,000, Krajewski said. As the owners say on Metro's website: "Art scholars are not going to have long lengthy discussions trying to decipher the hidden meaning to Metro's paintings. He is a horse. "It is what it is. A painting you can hang on your wall and tell all your friends it was painted by a horse," they said. Typically, horse and owner paint for an hour or two, maybe four times a week, Ron Krajewski said, adding that Metro never seems to get bored with the task.

Metro lives at Motter's Station Stables, near Rocky Ridge, a small town in the rolling hills of northern Maryland. An indoor arena doubles as his studio. One morning this week, the horse demonstrated his technique interpreted by Wendy Krajewski to a visitor. "He'll roll ... he likes to roll," she said, and within minutes, the horse knelt, lay on his side and began to roll on his back. Then he got to his feet, walked over to his easel and array of paints and wrapped his muzzle around a paintbrush. Friendly and laid-back, he scarcely fit the stereotype of a high-strung thoroughbred. A former turf sprinter, considered among the fastest at

Saratoga and Belmont Park, Metro won about $300,000 during his racing career, his owners said. When his knees deteriorated, forcing him off the track, the Krajewskis, who owned a percentage of the horse, adopted Metro with plans to use him for casual trail riding. They also own a quarterhorse and another adopted thoroughbred. The horse was able to take short trail rides, but eventually his weak knees left him unable to support the weight of a rider, they said. The Krajewskis donate half of Metro's earnings to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program, a charity that seeks homes and rehabilitation for retired racehorses. The owner of Gallery 30 donates a portion of Metro's profits to a local animal shelter. "We use the rest to pay for his medical bills," Ron Krajewski said. "The special treatment for his knees is very expensive." Metro suffers from arthritis, cartilitis or frozen joints, and rapid bone growth, among other health issues. At first, his prognosis was bleak and if he continued to deteriorate, he could die within two or three years, his owners said. But recent X-rays showed that an experimental bone remodelling treatment had improved one knee, they said, and treatment on another knee will begin this month. Metro's popularity has gone national. He has appeared on network television and has received endorsement offers, his owners said. The volume of business offers prompted the Krajewskis to retain an intellectual property attorney. Their horse, they noted, is oblivious to earnings and acclaim. As long as he has fresh water and hay, some treats and a pasture where he can nibble grass, run and roll in the dirt, Metro is happy, they said.

Eels fall to third straight loss The return of workhorse Tim Mannah from a suspected broken leg was not enough to inspire the Eels past the Cowboys on a chilly night in Sydney's west. Parramatta winger Vai Toutai dived for a stunning try with two seconds left on the clock in front of a screaming home crowd but the grounding was ruled to be insufficient. The try could have locked things up with a kick to come, but instead the Cowboys made it back-to-back wins and the Eels slumped to a hat-trick of losses and a 27 start. "I was very nervous until I saw the replay and I thought he'd got it down on the initial look at it," Cowboys coach Neil Henry admitted. "But he lost the ball so we're thankful that it didn't go to 14-14 and possibly a loss or a golden point." It capped off an emotional week for the Townsvillebased franchise which lost one of its squad members in 20-year-old hooker Alex Elisala, who died in hospital on Monday. The two sides paid their respects for the one-Test Samoa representative with a moment's silence before kick-off. "There's no doubt that it affected us, but you wouldn't know really with how we started," Henry said. "Our completion rate was very high, we were controlling the ball and we wanted to be able to do that and just play down their end of the field for large parts of the game. "We did that for the first half but ... when the tide turned in the second half and they had a bit of possession we were under the pump for a bit." Ricky Stuart's men made a fast start with a fourpointer through Ryan Morgan in the second minute but North Queensland grabbed the next two to take an 8-4

lead into the break. Parramatta added a Fuifui Moimoi converted try with half an hour on the clock to level the scores but the evergreen Brent Tate put the visitors back in front with 12 to play. The Eels had their chances late in the piece thanks to busts by Jarryd Hayne and Chris Sandow, but their last-ditch effort in the right corner was waved off to the dismay of the Parramatta faithful. Victory moves North Queensland into the top eight above Canberra on for-and-against, while the Eels sit in 14th above only the injurybattered Tigers and the one-win Warriors.

Raiders ruin Storm's perfect start in the first half himself, Canberra pulled off the Ferguson said it was a true team effort. boilover of the season so far "I think we all just dug deep by putting the first blemish on and we worked hard for each other," he Melbourne's premiership said. defence with a 24-20 win at AAMI Park on Saturday night. The Raiders have now won three in a row on Storm turf and squared their season ledger at 4-4 whilst handing the 2012 premiers their first defeat since July 27 last year. Melbourne had won 16 straight coming into the clash but that record was immediately under threat as Blake Ferguson scored for the Raiders just 10 minutes in. The Storm hit back through Jesse Bromwich and a piece of Cooper Cronk magic saw Billy Slater running through for the home side's second try shortly after the half-hour mark. For the second week running Melbourne let a late try in as Ferguson made it a double in the shadows of half-time and converted it himself to lock things up at 12-12 at the break. Despite scoring all the points

"We knew it was going to be a tough ask coming down here in Melbourne, they've won what was it? Seventeen in a row? "We came off a loss last week that we shouldn't have lost. I think we just all stepped up." The Raiders then took the advantage with tries to Jack Wighton and a bolting Reece Robinson within the first quarter-hour after the re-start.

But their trademark neversay-die kept the Storm in the contest as Justin O'Neill and Mahe Fonua crossed for four-pointers to narrow the deficit to just four points with 20 minutes to play. Melbourne could not execute in the final minutes despite a handful of chances to capitalise on possession and errors and Canberra held on. "We always get up against the good teams [but] we have to be like that consistently," Raiders playmaker Terry Campese told Grandstand. "We haven't been too good away from home but that starts our away form, beating Melbourne in Melbourne after 15 [sic] straight. "We can beat anyone on our day." In a blow for David Furner's outfit, representative forward Tom Learoyd-Lahrs went off in the opening exchanges with a foot injury.

Spanish rider Dani Pedrosa gained his first win of the season on Sunday, taking the Spanish MotoGP. The 27-year-old Honda rider came home clear of his team-mate Marc Marquez while defending world champion Jorge Lorenzo was third on a Yamaha. Marquez, who went top of the standings on 61 points - three ahead of Pedrosa and four of Lorenzo - once again showed his class at just 20-years-old as he passed Lorenzo on the final bend for second spot. However, it left Lorenzo furious as they came together on the bend and he refused to accept Marquez's apology immediately afterwards. Lorenzo maintained a diplomatic facade once he dismounted from his bike. "I prefer not to comment on that. I would rather talk about my race," said Lorenzo, who turned 26 on Saturday. "It was a perfect race for my bike and the team. I am pretty sore about what happened but I prefer not to make any further comment." Marquez, who a fortnight ago became the youngest ever

winner of a MotoGp, accepted that he had been in the wrong. "I wanted to say sorry to Jorge but it wasn't possible," said Marquez, who has had a history in the other categories of upsetting his rivals with risky manoeuvres. "Sure if I had been him I would be angry but I entered the last lap and I knew that I could pass him and so I went for it," he added. Pedrosa, who has yet to add the MotoGP title to his 125cc and 250cc world crowns, was delighted to have broken his duck for the season. "It was a good race and I am delighted to have got a win under my belt," said Pedrosa, who has finished title runner-up on three occasions. "Jorge was very strong but once I got past him I let myself establish a decent lead and then eased off as I didn't want to destroy my tyres." Lorenzo produced an excellent manoeuvre after losing first place on the first corner, coming on the inside to pass Pedrosa on the first lap. Rossi too was in sparkling form on the first lap overtaking Marquez, but the young rider displayed the class he showed in the previous race by reclaiming third spot on the second lap. Both Lorenzo and Pedrosa opened up a bit of a gap on the pursuing pack led by Marquez and Rossi while behind the race saw four riders exit with 24 laps still remaining. The highest profile casualty was Honda rider Stefan Bradl, who went too wide on a bend and

the gravel which leaves the highly-rated German with just one finish in the three races this season. Up ahead Pedrosa took the lead with a neat pass of Lorenzo with 22 laps to go while Marquez put some space between himself and Rossi, who was being chased down by British rider Cal Crutchlow. Marquez upped the pressure on Lorenzo by hanging onto the four-time world champion's wheel attempting to pass him on several occasions with the older rider having to draw on all his experience to stave him off. Oblivious to this, Pedrosa established a lead of over two seconds on them and seemed to be well set for a comfortable victory. However, even though Lorenzo was being hounded all the way through the race by Marquez, it did not stop him from eating into Pedrosa's lead. Alarm bells started ringing for Pedrosa as his lead was slashed by a second with two laps remaining, but it was enough in the end as the real drama unfolded between his two compatriots which could have ramifications further down the line. The next race is the French MotoGP at Le Mans in a fortnight.
