BALI THE RIGHT WAY G'day again folks and what a weekend in the A.F.L Karn the pies was the call for the afternoon along with satu lagi, although from what I can remember, I think the old satu lagi was called more than any cheering, and at the end of the day it got a bit slurred. A great result against the Cats and unfortunately being that the Pies haven't been able to beat the Cats for two years, I didn't tip them did I. Essendon must have missed an injection as they took a loss to aliasj@kutaweekly.com Brisbane who paid $12.00 on the tote. The Eagles match was arguably the best game of the round with the Man who came to the country on a boat as an asylum seeker with his family kicking a goal after the final siren to win the game. I bet not to many people call him an illegal immigrant do they. Moving along there has been a few new inclusions to the paper in the last few weeks and I will take the opportunity to introduce to our readers one in particular being the “Bali Fast Boat Day Charter” The boat has just been completely re-fitted and is ready to take the most avid fishermen out to all the best spots that the locals don't tell you about. The vessel can easily take up to 20 people and can do the run to Lombok, The Gili Islands or even venture as far as Flores if you have enough for the fuel. At this point the skipper has been running surfers out to some of the best waves in Indonesia with many of the surfers camping on the boat for a few nights in small groups, to not miss any waves. There are toilets and showers on-board along with all the gear you need to catch a decent feed of fish. I think you would have to bring your own surf board if you want to catch a wave. Being fully Australian owned and operated the boat is about as safe as you can get, with skipper Tony having a complete understanding of the English language and knowing how to ensure all the safety gear is kept up to speed along with all navigation equipment. I trust that the fishermen amongst us will give the “MAHI MAHI” a call and arrange a day trip or a charter. Thanks again for your support Mr Glenn and we hope to see you in the paper for many years to come. You can check out their advert on page 28. Ok folks that about all I have time for today. I hope that you all get onto your Facebook and search for the Kuta Weekly and hit the like button. We are now, on our way to 600 'likes' and when we get there, we might just have to throw a party at a local venue to celebrate. Keep the emails coming, as we are always keen to publish letters from our readers provided they aren't too full of profanity. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always try to remember, a wise man once said absolutely nothing because sometimes it's wisest to keep your mouth shut. Enjoy Your Week, ALIASJ………… (PS) A quick message to all you whinging old fools that keep sending me complaining mail about not being able to get the answers for the crosswords and Sudoku, I concede, the answers will now be published in the next edition….. 4

BALI LOCATION TO SUIT EVERYONE Sanur is a town on the east coast of South Bali. Sanur is Bali's oldest upscale resort area and is a mature beach-side town. Despite the abundance of restaurants and accommodation, it has a quiet and relaxed feel to it. In general terms, it is more expensive than Kuta but cheaper than Seminyak. Sanur tends to appeal most to middle-aged and older families, especially Europeans. Th e Sanur a rea i s sandwiched between the main Jalan Ngurah Rai bypass and the beach. One main route called Jalan Danau Tamblingan runs north to south through the town and it is easy to orient yourself with reference to this road. S a n u r ( I n d o n e s i a n : P a n t a i S a n u r, pronounced sah-noor) is a coastal stretch of beach of Denpasar city of southeast Bali, about 30 minutes drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport, which has grown into a little town in its own right. a 5.1 kilometers of the Sanur's coastline from Matahari Terbit Beach to Mertasari Beach has been ready reclaimed in 2008. The northern part of Sanur beach was used as the landing site for the Dutch invasion troops during the Dutch intervention in Bali (1906). During World War II, Sanur was again the entry point through which the Japanese forces landed to occupy the island of Bali. Today Sanur contains a number of hotel resorts such as the Medina and Bali Hyatt (not to be confused with the Grand Hyatt in Nusa Dua). Sanur is also home to a growing number of popular villa resorts, such as The Aleesha Villas.

The park and supporting structures located on 1.8 hectare of land now stand half-completed as construction workers abandoned the project when their paychecks stop flowing. Bali Post reports that an inspection of the Bukit Jati Wa t e r b o o m P r o j e c t s i t e revealed a partially completed two-storey building stood in front of a swimming pool. Two swimming pools, opened to the public and local athletes before the project was commenced, now stand empty and in a state of disrepair.

A Handicraft to Mouth Existence Changing Tastes and a Global Economic Downturn Decimating Bali's Handicraft Sector The prolonged global economic crisis has seen many of the companies involved in the export of Balinese handicrafts cease operations. At the same time, the desire or ability of consumers to purchase local handicrafts is on the decline among both foreign and domestic visitors to Bali. Traditional craftsmen, for whom the production of handicrafts has been a family trade passed on from one generation to the next, are now seeking new fields of work. Some have become farmers, coolies at local construction sites or workers in private industry. According to Bisnis Bali, I Wayan Budi, a Denpasar resident who created handicrafts for more than a dozen years has seen his

daily income decrease from US$7.50 to just US$2.50. Recently, however, his income had dropped to zero on many days due to the lack of sales. Said Wayan Budi: “We are seeing the handicraft sector as

holding little promise for the future. The condition is very bad. Sudden last minute orders have all but disappeared. Friends in the same business say that many former buyers have gone bankrupt.� I Wayan Leder, a statuette

maker from Bangli, also complains that the handicraft market has collapsed. Unable to live any longer from his meager income as a skilled handicraft maker, Leder now works as a collie on a building site where he can earn US$5 a day. Bali's building boom at least offers a more certain source of income than creating souvenirs for sale to tourist or for exporters. One observer of the handicraft sector, Drs. I Dewa Ngurah Dharendra, estimated that at its peak 25,000 people worked as handicraft makers. By extrapolating that each worker provided an income for a family of five, a total of 125,000 Balinese were dependent on the handicraft sector. That number is, however, clearly on the decline with fewer and fewer Balinese able to eek a livelihood from the production and sale of handicraft items. www.balidiscovery.com

A gnome grows in Chelsea Some spectators at London's Chelsea Flower Show wouldn't be caught dead with one in the trunk of their Bentley, but garden gnomes have turned up at the show's 100th edition this year, for charity.

"I think there is so much immediate gratification these days it's probably quite good for young people especially to grow (plants) and feed them and watch, chill out and learn something about patience," she said as she strolled amongst a largely greyhaired crowd of VIPs and The Royal Horticultural gardening enthusiasts. Society (RHS), which runs Celebrity gardener Alan Chelsea in the grounds of the Titchmarsh, host of a BBC Christopher Wrenbuilt Royal Hospital Chelsea, has lifted a ban on the ceramic figures with floppy hats and beards in order to raise funds for an RHS charity that supports the use of gardens in schools.

Aries – March 21 to April 20

Libra – September 24 to October 23

Hold onto your seat Rams! Uranus is sending disruptions in your direction and [at the same time] Pluto demands that you shed your old skin and start afresh. Your motto for the moment is from birthday great Bob Dylan “There is nothing so stable as change.” Saturday's Lunar Eclipse gets your enthusiasm firing … but avoid blurting out something that you later regret.

If you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, you'll have an eventful week full of exciting adventures. Serious Saturn is asking you to make some firm financial decisions so don't waste precious time dithering around and being indecisive. Close personal relationships are in for a major shake-up, as Uranus and Pluto redefine what family life really means to you.

Taurus – April 21 to May 21 With five planets [including Venus and the Lunar Eclipse] lighting up your money zones, you've got an urge to splurge. But don't let a persuasive friend talk you into buying something you really can't afford. Loved ones will overwhelm you … if you let them. Mighty Mars is marching through your sign, so it's time for Bulls to be bold and show others who's the boss!

Gemini – May 22 to June 21 Relationships take centre stage this week, as the Lunar Eclipse shines a bright spotlight on partnerships. With no less than four planets powering through your sign, you're keen to express yourself and have your needs met. But what about the significant others in your life? Balance and compromise are the keys, as you strive to find a happy medium between giving and taking.

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22 Problems you had last June or September may rise to the surface, as Uranus and Pluto square up again. Your natural inclination is to maintain the status quo. But, if you resist change, you'll just aggravate [and prolong] an unsatisfactory situation. Plus possessive behavior will get you nowhere fast. Seems it's time for stubborn Scorpios to let go … and then move on.

Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21 With five planets firing up your relationship zone this week, it's time to bite the bullet and patch up old partnership problems. Single Sagittarians – look for love with someone who is smart, sexy and spontaneous. Saturday's Lunar Eclipse lights up your sign, which magnifies your positive [and negative] traits. So strive to be wise and witty … rather than bossy and boisterous.

Cancer – June 22 to July 23

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20

Avoid the temptation to fly off the handle this week Crabs. If you try to control or manipulate others, then you're in for a tumultuous and tense time. Uranus and Pluto are pushing you to let go of old ways of behaving, as you transform your relationships [at home and work] from the inside out. Your fertile imagination is firing, so put it to use via a challenging creative project.

Have some of your Capricorn dreams been put on hold? Serious Saturn [your ruling planet] is urging you to take a long hard look at your aspirations for the future … and then revise them to better suit your current circumstances. When it comes to a difficult domestic situation – if you keep doing what you're doing; you'll just keep getting what you're getting!

Leo – July 24 to August 23

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

Lions – when it comes to work, the more proactive you are, the more successful you'll be. Influential people are waiting to help you – all you have to do is swallow your pride and ask. The Lunar Eclipse energizes your entertainment zone, so it's a wonderful weekend to party, go to a concert or entertain at home. But be careful you're not being elastic with the truth.

Are you bored to bits? Powerful Pluto demands that you make important adjustments in your life … but they won't be the changes you want or expect. So strive to approach the future with an open mind and an adventurous Aquarian spirit. There could be a few fireworks with a family member on Friday, so edit what comes out of your mouth and tread carefully.

Virgo – August 24 to September 23 The Lunar Eclipse, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter are all activating your career zone so you're pumped up for professional success.

Hari Waisak – Waisak Day. celebrated on Waisak. The first is the birth of Siddhartha Gautama. The second is the acceptance of the divine revelation under the Bodhi tree. And the third is the journey of Siddhartha Gautama to heaven. These three big events occur exactly on the Full Moon Purnama Sidhi. Thus, Waisak is also very well known as Tri Suci Waisak or Three Holy Events. Buddhists celebrate Waisak by praying to their God Sang Tri Ratna as thanks giving for creating and maintaining the earth and its resources in harmony. It is very common for Buddhists to celebrate Waisak with the presentation of fruit, flowers and candles. For Buddhists, candles symbolize their philosophy On 25th May 2013 in Bali and across of life, the sought-after enlightenment.

The slides were obtained in 1924 when the father of the Indian independence movement was recovering from an appendectomy near Mumbai. He was thought to have donated the blood to the family he was staying with at the time. "To Gandhi devotees, it has the same status as a sacred relic to a Christian," said Richard Westwood-Brookes, a historical documents expert at Mullock's auctioneers which is selling the item.

"It is an artefact which is revered by disciples o f G a n d h i , particularly in India and therefore that is the sort of person who would go for it," he added. The slides are part of a larger collection of items obtained by Mullock's, which include the former leader's sandals, shawl and bed linen. Demand for Gandhi memorabilia has been steadily growing since Mullock's sold soil samples and blades of bloody grass purportedly from the spot where Gandhi was assassinated

Mum posted online ad for adoption A pregnant woman has been arrested after she allegedly tried to "adopt out" her three-year-old son. An off-duty police officer found an ad on classifieds website Craigslist in which a woman wrote: "I'm trying to adopt out my three-year-old son. "I'm not in a good place in my life and don't feel like I can care for him properly, but I don't know where to start. mum and can't do this. "If you or know anyone Thanks, Desperate." who is interested in caring for him Police in Houston, Texas, please let me know. I'm a single

a r r e s t e d Stephanie Redus, 29, over the May 1 ad, which has since been removed by Craigslist. M s R e d u s reportedly told authorities that the posting was an attempt to help tackle her anxiety. A Houston Police officer said that although Ms Redus wrote the post, she did not intend to give up her child for adoption. "The defendant responded that she is pregnant and has not been able to take her medication to combat her depression and anxiety," the officer said.

Eating insects could help fight obesity The thought of eating beetles, caterpillars and ants may give you the creeps, but the authors of a U.N. report published on Monday said the health benefits of consuming nutritious insects could help fight obesity. More than 1,900 species of insects are eaten around the world, mainly in Africa and Asia, but people in the West generally turn their noses up at the likes of grasshoppers, termites and other crunchy fare. The authors of the study by the Forestry Department, part of the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), said many insects contained the same amount of protein and minerals as meat and more healthy fats doctors recommend in balanced diets. "In the West we have a cultural bias, and think that because insects come from

12

developing countries, they cannot be good," said scientist Arnold van Huis from Wageningen University in the Netherlands, one of the authors of the report. Eva Muller of the FAO said restaurants in Europe were

starting to offer insect-based dishes, presenting them to diners as exotic delicacies. Danish restaurant Noma, for example, crowned the world's best for three years running in one poll, is renowned for ingredients including ants and fermented

As well as helping in the costly battle against obesity, which the World Health Organization estimates has nearly doubled since 1980 and affects around 500 million people, the report said insect farming was likely to be less land-dependent than traditional livestock and produce fewer greenhouse gases. It would also provide business and export opportunities for poor people in developing countries, especially women, who are often responsible for collecting insects in rural communities. Va n H u i s s a i d barriers to enjoying dishes such as bee larvae yoghurt were psychological - in a blind test carried out by his team, nine out of 10 people preferred meatballs made from roughly half meat and half mealworms to those made from meat.

Melbourne Storm and Sea Eagles play out desperate 10-10 draw at AAMI Park Old foes Melbourne and Manly were inseparable after 90 minutes as they played out a 1 0 - 1 0 s lugf e s t dr a w on Monday night at AAMI Park to close out round 10. The Storm had lost their past two games, upset results at the hands of Canberra and Penrith, while the Sea Eagles were coming off the back of a home loss to the Roosters last Monday night. The first half was all Manly as workhorse co-captain Jamie Lyon slotted an early penalty then converted his own try to open up an 8-0 advantage at the break. Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy had accused his charges of losing passion for the game after going down to the Panthers and Raiders. Storm lock Ryan Hinchcliffe, a surprise inclusion in the side after a five-week lay-off due to a knee injury, said the side was looking to prove the coach wrong on that front. "We really wanted to emphasise the energy around the group this week," he told Grandstand. "We really felt like we'd been lacking that in the last couple of weeks. "We wanted to start the game

really well ... we didn't do that tonight but we found our groove after about 10 minutes." The Storm showed just how badly they wanted to snap their losing skid - against their twotime grand final rivals to boot - with a desperate showing after the break. Melbourne assaulted the Sea Eagles' line again and again,

having try attempts denied and held up, as the hosts were repeatedly unable to find their way over the stripe. The Storm amazingly had twice as much possession in the second stanza, boasting 24 possessions to Manly's 12, such was the fortitude of the visitors' defence. "It was credit to Manly for their defence; they really defended

so strongly on their line," Hinchcliffe said. "We'll have to have a look at our attack this week. "[I] thought we controlled most of that game but we just couldn't get across the line, I think we got held up four or five times." Gareth Widdop eventually managed to spark the attack when he popped a desperate chip on the fifth tackle for Maurice Blair to reel in and touch down. Skipper Cam Smith slotted the second of his two penalty goals to level the scores with a minute left on the clock, sending the game to golden point extra time. From there it became a shoot-out as Smith, Widdop and Cooper Cronk matched boots with Manly halves Daly CherryEvans and Kieran Foran. But no man could slot the winning point before the death, and even as Storm halfback Cronk launched one at the 90-minute hooter it was charged down by Justin Horo. It could have been an embarrassing finish for Manly when hooker Matt Ballin spilled the ball on his own 30-metre line, but Melbourne was unable to capitalise.

Prague metro plans to launch love train for singles Rail passengers searching for love in the Czech capital need look no further than the daily commute as the city makes plans to designate carriages on its underground trains for singles. P r a g u e transport company Ropid wants to set aside carriages on some or all of its trains for singles seeking a soul mate, a service that could launch by the end of this year. The city-owned company will start polling passengers to determine whether they would be interested.

S p o k e s m a n FilipDrapal said the initiative was one of the activities the city-owned company hoped would lure people out of their cars and onto public transportation.

"We want to emphasize that public transport is not only a means of travel but that you can do things there that you cannot do in your car," Prague, with a population of 1.2 million, attracted 5.4 million foreign visitors in 2012 with a mix of centuriesold architecture and cobblestone streets and cheap Pilsner beer. The city's three metro lines span more than 59 km and transported 580 million passengers in 2011.

Lions turn the clock back with Bombers win: Voss Dear Martha, I'm wondering if you can please help me coin a phrase. This happens all the time in social situations but I've never heard of a term for it. Person A is telling Person B a story at a bar. Person B gets distracted for whatever reason (bored and wants a drink, another story starting up nearby, a friend entering the social circle) and leaves Person A in the middle of their story. Person A then, without missing a beat, turns and forces their story onto unsuspecting Person C (this could be anyone because it doesn't matter) but acts as if they were speaking to Person C the entire time to save them the embarrassment that Person B left them mid story. My mate and I laugh whenever it happens to the other, but when it comes to giving it a name we've never been able to come up with anything that sums it up perfectly.

My friend who works for DFAT (Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade) says when you're at a boring diplomatic function and getting your ear chewed off by another public servant, you turn your heel outward from the conversation circle and use this as an open gate to welcome in (or collar) any passing third parties.

"There's consistency in four quarters but then there's the weekto-week that we have to nail also so that's why our focus shifts pretty quickly." Veteran defender Matt Maguire is set for a return from injury with key defenders Daniel Merrett and Justin Clarke both facing possible suspensions.

Sharrod Wellingham's injury woes continue as he and Will Schofield are sidelined for West Coast

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…Frankie Valli “Can’t Take My Eye’s Off You”

FRANKIE VALLI Frankie Valli (born Francesco Stephen Castelluccio May 3, 1934) is an American popular singer, most famous as front man of The Four Seasons beginning in 1960. He is well known for his unusually powerful falsetto voice. Valli scored 29 Top 40 hits with The Four Seasons, one Top 40 hit under The Four Seasons' alias 'The Wonder Who?', and nine Top 40 hits as a solo artist. As a member of The Four Seasons, Valli's number one hits included "Sherry" (1962), "Big Girls Don't Cry" (1962), "Walk Like a Man" (1963), "Rag Doll" (1964) and "December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)" (1975). Valli's recording of the song "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" reached number two in 1967. "You're Ready Now", a Valli solo recording from 1966, became a surprise hit in Great Britain as part of the Northern soul scene and hit number eleven on the British pop charts in December 1970. As a solo artist, Valli scored number one hits with the songs "My Eyes Adored You" (1974) and "Grease" (1978). Early life He was inspired to take up a singing career at the age of seven after his mother took him to see the young Frank Sinatra at the Paramount Theater in New York City. His early mentor was singer Texas Jean Valli, from whom he obtained his last name, although it took him some time to settle on the spelling "Valli". Until he could support himself with music, he worked as a barber. As with many other celebrities, Valli's birth year has been called into question. Valli never addressed the issue himself, until the 2007 posting at the Official Frankie Valli Site, sponsored by his current record label, Universal Records. Much of the previous official publicity surrounding his career had used 1937 as the birth year. It is hard to tell when and why this occurred, but inference can be made that by chopping a few years off his age, he would seem more commercially viable to a younger audience. Other sources, such as the Bear Family Records release, entitled 'The Four Lovers', as well as a 1965 "mug shot", available through The Smoking Gun, all identify his year of birth as 1934. 1970s to the present "You're Ready Now", a Valli solo recording from 1966, became a surprise hit in Great Britain as part of the Northern soul scene and hit number eleven on the British pop charts in December 1970. In 1975, Valli's single "My Eyes Adored You" hit number 1 on Billboard's Hot 100. In the same year, he also had a number 6 Billboard hit with the disco-laden "Swearin' To God", while a further UK Chart success came with "Fallen Angel" written by Guy Fletcher & Doug Flett and produced by Bob Gaudio Valli was in the UK charts with this at the same time as The Four Seasons enjoyed a UK hit with "Silver Star" on which Valli did not appear. In 1978, Valli sang the theme song for the film version of the stage play, Grease, a song written by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, which became a number 1 hit. He had two further chart successes the following year, "Save Me, Save Me" in November 1978, which entered the Billboard Easy Listening chart, and "Fancy Dancer" in January 1979, which entered the pop charts. Valli suffered from otosclerosis in the 1970s, forcing him to "sing from memory" in the latter part of the decade. Surgery restored most of his hearing by 1980. In 1992, a new Four Seasons album was released entitled Hope and Glory.

In 2005, the Broadway musical Jersey Boys opened on the "Great White Way". Besides performances of many of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hit recordings, the musical features a biographical narrative, told as four separate points of view by each of the members of The Four Seasons (Tommy DeVito, Frankie Valli, Nick Massi, and Bob Gaudio). The musical dramatizes several real-life incidents from Valli's life, including his estrangement from his daughter Francine, who died in 1980. The show was widely acclaimed, financially successful, and won six Tony awards. The musical has touring companies around the world, as well as a version at Paris Las Vegas. In October 2007, Valli released Romancing the 60s, an album containing covers of his favorite songs from the 1960s, two of which he had previously recorded. Those songs were "Sunny" and "Any Day Now". In October 2010, a duet version of "The Biggest Part of Me" by Frankie Valli and Juice Newton was released on Newton's album Duets: Friends & Memories. In October 2012, Valli made his Broadway debut with a week-long concert engagement at the Broadway Theatre in New York starting October 19.

Frankie Valli Can't Take My Eyes off You Lyric You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off of you You'd be like heaven to touch I wanna hold you so much At long last love has arrived And I thank God I'm alive You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off of you Pardon the way that I stare There's nothing else to compare The sight of you leaves me weak There are no words left to speak But if you feel like I feel Please let me know that it's real You're just too good to be true Can't take my eyes off of you chorus: I love you baby and if it's quite all right I need you baby to warm the lonely nights I love you baby, trust in me when I say Oh pretty baby, don't bring me down I pray Oh pretty baby, now that I've found you stay And let me love you baby, let me love you

Sharrod Wellingham's wretched injury run this year has continued with the West Coast midfielder set to miss up to seven weeks due to a serious ankle injury. A preseason trampoline mishap that caused major damage to his right ankle grounded Wellingham for the first five rounds of the AFL season. But the former Magpie was dealt another blow in Friday night's win over North Melbourne when he badly rolled his other ankle when his foot became caught underneath an opponent during a tackle. In a best-case scenario, Wellingham will return in five weeks. And there was further bad news for the Eagles on the injury front with defender Will Schofield ruled out for up to four weeks after undergoing surgery on his dislocated finger. Schofield suffered the injury in the third term, but bravely returned to the fray in the final quarter to ease the burden on his team-mates.

Eagles coach John Wo r s f o l d s a i d S c h o f i e l d ' s decision to play on helped the Eagles snare the two-point win. "He said 'if you need me to go out there, I'll go. I can't really

handle the footy, but I'll try and give something just to get someone a rest for five or six minutes'," Worsfold said. Wellingham's injury paves the way for veteran wingman Andrew Embley to return for Saturday's away clash with Greater Western Sydney while defender Mitch Brown is the obvious replacement for Schofield. Three wins on the trot have moved the Eagles back to within six points of fourth place, and they could improve their season tally to 7-4 with wins over

WEEKLY POKER COMPETITION

GWS, Richmond and St Kilda (away) before the bye. But from there it gets tough for the Eagles with games against Hawthorn (away), Essendon, Adelaide (away), Fremantle and Sydney sure to test their premiership credentials. West Coast midfielder Andrew Gaff hopes the momentum gained from Nic Naitanui's match-winning goal against North Melbourne will help propel the club towards further success this season. "There's a massive difference between us being 3-5, if Nic had missed that goal, and 44 like we are now," Gaff said on Monday. "It definitely gives us a bit of a platform for the rest of the year." Gaff believed the club's round-five loss to Port Adelaide could also prove to be a turning point of sorts. The Eagles coughed up a 41-point lead in that game, but have since won three matches to revive their top-four hopes.

Whincup swept to victory in three of the four races on the V8s' debut in the United States - a resounding success for the sport with more than 68,000 attending over the three-day event in Austin, Texas. But while Davison went into the weekend Whincup's nearest championship challenger, he left the Circuit of the Americas having lost second place after a disastrous weekend. Davison failed to finish the fourth race won by Whincup on Monday (AEST) after an early tangle with Holden driver Scott McLaughlin wrecked the right side of his car. He finished fourth, ninth and

That allowed Whincup to a possible mid-race breach by skip away to a 142-point Coulthard which could cost him the victory.

Bullet removed with pliers

A soldier shot in the forehead with an assault rifle has survived having the bullet removed with pliers. According to a report, the Russian soldier was reportedly caught in AK-47 crossfire between Russian and Chechen militants. A video shot by a comrade shows the man, now nicknamed 'The Russian Terminator', turn to the camera and smile as a friend cleans the wound with fluid. He then remains "calm and composed" and closes his eyes as another soldier, devoid of any medical equipment, pulls the bullet out from an area just millimetres

from the man's eyes. A soldier shot in the forehead has been nicknamed 'The Russian Terminator'. The man stays calm and composed throughout the procedure, report claims. The soldier turns to the camera to show the bloodied bullet after just

a few minutes. The Daily Mail reports that the soldier then inspects the wound with his hand after the bullet has been removed. It is believed the video, which has gone viral, was filmed during the war in Chechnya in 2000.

Man climbs onto dome of St Peter's "Stop this massacre! The political horror show is continuing," in English, scrawled in black and red ink, with "Help us Pope Francis" in Italian.

A man climbed onto a ledge on the dome of St Peter's Basilica and unfurled a banner protesting against a "political horror show", an apparent reference to Italy's embattled coalition struggling with recession and high unemployment.

for a month-old coalition government has already fallen to 34 percent from 43 percent since it was cobbled together in April to bring an end to political stalemate. Di Finizio has staged similar protests on the dome in the past. Last October he stayed there overnight with a banner criticizing multinationals, Europe, and former Prime Minister Mario Monti.

Marijuana waste helps turn pot-eating pigs into tasty pork roast With Washington state about to embark on a first-of-itskind legal market for recreational marijuana, the budding ranks of new cannabis growers face a quandary over what to do with the excess stems, roots and leaves from their plants. Susannah Gross, who owns a five-acre farm north of Seattle, is part of a group experimenting with a solution that seems to make the most of marijuana's appetiteenhancing properties turning weed waste into pig food. Four pigs whose feed was supplemented with potent plant leavings during the last four months of their lives ended up 20 to 30 pounds heavier than the halfdozen other pigs from the same litter when they were all sent to slaughter in March. "They were eating more, as you can imagine," Gross said. Giving farm animals the munchies is the latest outcome of a ballot measure passed by Washington voters in November making their state one of the first to legalize the recreational use of pot. The other was Colorado. Both were among about 20 states with

30

medical marijuana laws already on their books. The federal government still classifies cannabis as an illegal narcotic, and the Obama administration has not yet said what actions, if any, it will take in answer to the newly passed recreational weed statutes. Matt McAlman, the medical marijuana grower who provided the pot leavings for Gross' pigs, says he hopes the idea expands with the likely impending expansion of

Washington state's marijuana industry. "We can have pot chickens, pot pigs, grass-fed beef," he said. Draft regulations issued last week to govern the burgeoning recreational-use industry seem to leave open that possibility. The rules dictate that marijuana plant waste must be "rendered unusable

prior to leaving a licensed producer or processor's facility," adding that mixing it with food waste would be acceptable. Gross' pigs were butchered by William von Schneidau, who has a shop at the famous Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. In March, von Schneidau held a "Pot Pig Gig" at the market, serving up the marijuana-fed pork as part of a five-course meal. He quickly sold out the remaining weed-fed meat at his shop but plans another potpig feast later this summer, he said. "Some say the meat seems to taste more savory," he said. The results beg the question of whether pot-fed pork contains any measurable traces of THC, the mindaltering chemical ingredient in cannabis. The European Food Safety Authority reported in 2 0 11 t h a t " n o s t u d i e s concerning tolerance or effects of graded levels of THC in foodproducing animals have been found in literature." The agency also noted that "no data are available concerning the likely transfer of THC ... to animal tissues and eggs following repeated administration."

A single litre of urine? Four African girls have created a generator that produces electricity for six hours using a single litre of urine as fuel. The generator was unveiled at last week's Maker Faire in Lagos, Nigeria, by the four teens Duro-AinaAdebola, AkindeleAbiola, and FalekeOluwatoyin, all age 14, and Bello Eniola, 15. So how exactly does the urine-powered generator work? Urine is put into an electrolytic cell, which separates out the hydrogen. The hydrogen goes into a water filter for purification, which then gets pushed into the gas cylinder. The gas cylinder pushes hydrogen into a cylinder of liquid borax, which is used to remove the moisture from the hydrogen gas. This purified hydrogen gas is pushed into the generator. And as for delivering the fuel itself? Well, we'll leave that up to the consumer. The Maker Faire is a popular event across the African continent, drawing thousands of participants who travel to Lagos to show their inventions and other practical creations.

Wallaby selection a dream for Western Force winger Nick Cummins Western Force winger Nick Cummins was shocked to learn of his Wallaby squad selection for the series against the British and Irish Lions, but says he is desperate to make the most of the opportunity now that it has come his way. Cummins' chances of earning a gig for the series looked slim earlier this season when he was grounded for seven games due to a lingering knee complaint. But a string of impressive performances over the past three weeks caught the eye of Wallabies coach Robbie Deans, who named Cummins on Sunday as part of his 25-man squad for the threeTest series. Deans will add another six players to the squad on June 11, but Cummins is over the moon to have already secured his spot. "I was shocked. But I'm happy and keen to get amongst it," said Cummins, who is nicknamed 'The Honey Badger' due to his ferocious attack on the ball. "My old man woke me up in the morning. He was going off like a bag of cats. He was happy with the news. "I was in year eight when I first saw a Lions game. "It's a pretty big deal. "Even big Sharpie (Nathan Sharpe) hasn't done it, and he's done everything else known to man. If I end up getting a gig, I'll be going off like a cut snake.

"It would be something I would be able to cherish." Cummins predicts he will hit top form over coming weeks as he continues to build up his fitness and touch. The 25-year-old's next task is to help the Force get a win over the last-placed Highlanders in Saturday night's Super Rugby clash at Perth Oval. The Force sit just three points above the Highlanders, meaning the result of the match will play a huge role in deciding the wooden spoon.

In what was his 30th meeting with Roger Federer, clay court king Nadal outclassed the Swiss 6-1, 6-3 as he continued his stunning comeback following a seven-month injury absence. Williams, who will head to Paris next week hoping to avenge her stunning first round defeat to Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano last year, was in equally imperious form as she swept aside Victoria Azarenka 6-1, 6-3. Nadal's triumph means he now leads Federer 20-10 in their series, with 13 of his wins coming on clay. He also now has 24 Masters titles in a career total of 56. Ahead of his bid to extend his record run of seven victories in Paris, Nadal admitted he had never dreamed of such success - he now has 36 wins in 38 matches since his return to the tour in February. "If you'd told me that four or five months ago I would have said you are crazy," said fifth-seeded Nadal. "So after eight tournaments, six victories, and

two finals, it's a dream for me." Federer, the second seed, had overcome French upstart Benoit Paire in a late semi-final yesterday to make his first final of the season. But despite winning the opening game on serve on Sunday the Swiss failed to really get a grip on the match. In all, Federer finished with 32 unforced errors to Nadal's eight. "He played very aggressively from the start, he didn't make too many mistakes and had a good match overall," said Federer, who admitted the change in class from his previous challengers this week had been a factor. "Rafa has much more top-spin than all the guys I played this week, so the change was quite a big one. "I tried to play offensively, but unfortunately I didn't have the best day. It didn't go the way I was hoping it to go."
