BALI THE RIGHT WAY G'day again punters and welcome to the hottest weekly newspaper in Bali. The weekend just gone saw a crappy run in the AFL footy with so many sides that should have won, losing to opposition. It crapped me off so much I'm going to plug on about the State of Origin this week instead. We are that time of year again where the lads from cane toad country come together with the blokes from New South Wales and take on a 3 game clash to decide which state is the dominant one in the N.R.L. Go the Blues…..

Now,you have to look at this objectively as in, imagine standing on a field with a crew and the object is to get the ball from one end of the field to the other, somehow dodging giant angry men along the way. If I could put it into perspective, you would be faced with a six foot five, 145 kilo bloke, who can run for 2 hours straight without breaking a sweat, lift heavy things, the whole time grunting single syllable sentence's and when you try get past him, he has one plan in mind and that's to stop you in your tracks. I could think of better things to do as far as sport goes like swimming with Steve Irwin, God rest his soul, or darts or maybe cricket at a push, basically any other low impact sport that isn't gonna potentially smash every bone in your body. These blokes are huge and I'd say eat way to much red meat, butas far as athletes go they are truly that. In the United States these blokes would be padded to all buggery and wear protective gear that lessens the impact on the old bones, but not in Australia. Straight out on the field with a thin jumpers and pair of the old shorts and wammo. No head gear, nothing.. Have you ever listened to an interview with any of these blokes on the television, it's like listening to a gorilla explaining how in depth the game plan was and how the team has been working real hard in training by lifting up small cattle, small vehicles and the like, to strengthen their arms further. All this makes for a great spectator sport and this year will be no exception. I have it on good authority that “Moo Moos th Steak house bar and grill” is throwing a large event for each game with the first being June the5 These guys are the undisputed home of N.R.L in Bali, as far as the Kuta Weekly is concerned and have been supporting the newspaper without question for many years. They have a great line up ready for each game, and if you are, or even if you aren't a fan,I'd say this is going to be the place to watch it. Mr Richard has a 200 inch screen on the back wall, which is the biggest screen in Bali along with 10 more plasma screens spotted throughout the joint, so you won't miss one second of the action. The sound system in the place has had a few quid spent on it and believe me it's like being at the event live. They have a full on menu with something for every pallet, and on the day will have some even yummier promo girls doing the rounds. I believe a small Bintang is going to be on special for 10,000 Rupiah during the happy hour, which is definitely below cost and they will have some Bintang bucket specials along with that. There will be giveaways during the course of the day and after the clash they will have a live band. All in all the day is set to be a ripper and not to be missed. I think all our loyal readers need to understand that the powers that be at “Moo Moos” are keen N.R.L people and each year put on a big event for the State of Origin, so if you want the best seats I'd suggest you make a call and reserve them or get in early for the match. Thanks to Moo Moos for their ongoing support and we look forward to seeing them with us as “The home of N.R.L in Bali” for many years to come. You can check out their advert in the centre ofthe paper. Thanks again to the team at “Moo Moos Steakhouse Bar and Grill” Ok punters I think that ought to do it for the week and it may be time for a few green bottles with friends. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always remember, Be yourself, everyone else is already taken. Enjoy Your Week, ALIASJ……..

Speaking to NusaBali, Anak Agung Gde Agung said, “Gosh, the Underpass has come this far without my hearing that mlaspas or mercaru ceremonies have been held?

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.

Bali: Higher Tour Prices Ahead? B a l i To u r i s m T r a n s p o r t Association Studying Rate Rise Due to Imminent Increase in Fuel Costs Plans by the government of Indonesia to increase premium gasoline in June by 44% or Rp. 2,000 to Rp. 6,500 a litre (US$0.65) and diesel fuel by 28% to Rp. 4,500 (US$0.45) a litre has brought a reaction from the Bali Tourism Transport Association (PAWIBA). PAWIBA, comprised of companies offering transport to tourist visitors, says an increase in

their tariffs of between 1015% is needed to meet the higher fuel costs and the rising cost of spare parts. Bagus Soediana, the chairman of PAWIBA, speaking to The Bali Post, said his members are waiting to see how the costs of spare parts increases once the

increased cost in subsidized fuel comes into effect sometime in June. He estimated that approximately one week after the fuel increase takes place PAWIBA would be able to estimate the necessary increase in transport tariffs. PAWIBA members represent the main supply of busses and vans used by Bali's hotels and tour companies. Higher fuel prices are also expected to increase the cost of new vehicles and labour costs over time.

Taking the Devil Out of the Kids in Bali U n i q u e Ceremony in Village North of Ubud, Bali Sees Local Youths P a i n t Themselves in Te c h n i c o l o r Dreams Earlier this month the unique “ N g e r e b e g ” ceremony, held once every six months, was again celebrated in the traditional village of Tegallalang, north of Ubud. The actual date of its celebration is determined by the convergence of several cycles of months, weeks and days in the Balinese calendar, or, put into local terms, on “rahina budha kliwon pegat uwakan.” The “Ngerebeg” is generally reserved for teenagers who decorate their bodies and faces using water-based paints. The resulting looks are, to say the

least, extreme with teenagers, primarily young men, resembling punk stars, ghosts and menacing demons – all temporary members of platoon in the service of the ancient Balinese king I Gusti Ngurah Gede Pecangakan who reigned in the 15th century - seen as a heroic protector of Bali. The colourful parade begins with lunch at the local temple followed by a processional parade with the grotesquely

flagstaffs of penjors for a distance of 2-3 kilometres, the distance between two local temples. The parade participants, in keeping with local tradition, make offerings at designated points along the route intended to protect the village and its inhabitants. Local village officials in Tegallalang insist that villagers hold the event year after year, frightened that a failure to honour the tradition would bring misfortune upon the community. On a more basis level, "Ngerebeg" observances are seen as purifying the local people and their surroundings prior to piodalan ceremonies marking the anniversary of the village's main temple.

A petition on the White House's official website calling for the US and Australia merger failed on yesterday to receive the 100,000 signatures needed for it to be reviewed by Mr Obama's policy experts. Supporters had one month to muster up the 100,000 signatures, but they fell well short with less than 7000 signing up. The Ameristralia campaign was born on the social news and entertainment website Reddit. Enthusiastic supporters created an Ameristralia flag


featuring US stars and stripes blended with the Southern Cross, the koala-bald eagle coatof-arms and proposed the national sport to be Austus, an AFL-gridiron hybrid.

The “We the People” section on the website was launched in 2011 to give Americans their constitutional right to petition the US government on issues deemed important.



fans calling for the US to build a Death Star generated enough signatures to make it to Mr Obama's desk.

They include the Send troops to liberate Hong Kong petition, which so far has 1933 signatures. There's also Stop the Genocide of Whites petition (312 signatures), Make the metric system the standard in the US (49,913), Recount the election (72,730) and Release (accused Boston Marathon bomber) DzhokharTsarnaev and drop all charges without prejudice based on a lack of evidence and false accusations (2,312).

Libra – September 24 to October 23

Mighty Mars [your ruling planet] moves through Gemini from May 31 through until July 13. It also joins the Sun, Jupiter and Venus in your communication zone so the next six weeks is the ideal time to converse and socialize; mix and mingle; text and tweet up a storm. The more you get involved in local community projects, the more contacts and friendships you'll make.

You love your creature comforts and Libran luxuries but avoid getting stuck in a complacent rut. With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all activating your adventure zone, it's time to travel overseas; take an interstate trip; or rough it in the great outdoors closer to home. If you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, you'll feel more energized and alive!

Taurus – April 21 to May 21 Business-minded Bulls – a creative approach clears away the cobwebs, especially when it comes to money matters. With Mars moving through your $$$ zone [from May 31- July 13] the more proactive you are about increasing your cash flow, the more your financial situation will improve. But avoid being too black and white about a complicated relationship issue.

Gemini – May 22 to June 21

With four planets in your sign, you're feeling flirtatious. As birthday great Kylie Minogue [who has her Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Gemini] says “I'm just a natural flirt.” Mars dashes into your sign on Friday [until July 13] so it's time to approach life with extra energy and enthusiasm. Confidence is the rocket fuel that will take you where you want to go!

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22 Don your detective cap Scorpio! With Mars moving into your intrigue zone [from May 31 through until July 13] you're set to uncover a surprising secret over the next few weeks. Sexual shenanigans may also be revealed … involving yourself or someone close to you. And, with Mercury shifting into your study zone, you're in the mood to read, write and research.

Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21 When it comes to close personal relationships, slow down Sagittarius. If you jump to half-baked conclusions about a loved one, then you could end up with scrambled egg on your face! Attached Archers – take the time to really listen to what your partner is trying to tell you. Singles – love and travel are linked so start planning your itinerary [and saving] ASAP.

Cancer – June 22 to July 23

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20

Life's confusing for many Crabs at the moment but don't complicate matters by becoming dependent on the counsel of others. Asking for advice is fine, but it's up to you to make the final decision. Flashes of intuition will lead you in the right direction. With Mercury moving into your sign on Friday, it's time to express your feelings and say exactly what's on your mind.

With Uranus in your home zone, it's time to move house; shake up your domestic routine; clear the clutter; or extend your living space. You need plenty of room to move at the moment. Saturn boosts productivity on Friday, and helps you socialize and circulate with an influential new crowd. If you want to get ahead at work, you'll have to do some serious networking!

Leo – July 24 to August 23

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

Cats … are you confused about your direction in life? Four planets are powering through your hopes and wishes zone, so you need to be passionately proactive about your goals for the future. Don't just dream about it … get out there and do it! Friendships are also favored, as you nurture your contacts and network in style. But be extra patient with a fractious family member.

Many Aquarians will feel like rocking the relationship boat and causing controversy. Be careful who you stir up though, as they may have a few surprise moves of their own! Make the most of your unique talents on Wednesday and Thursday, when the Moon moves through your sign. Look to avant-garde Aquarians role models [like Bob Marley and Yoko Ono] for inspiration.

Virgo – August 24 to September 23 Virgos are versatile and multi-talented, but you're not very good at blowing your own trumpet. This week, with the Sun, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all revving up your reputation zone, you're shining in the public spotlight … so make sure you're putting on a spectacular show. As birthday great Marilyn Monroe said “Everyone is a star and deserves the right to twinkle.”

Pisces – February 20 to March 20 You've got the power! With Mercury moving into your charm zone, use your Piscean powers of persuasion to help get others onside.

Doctors have told UK mother-ofthree Emma Day she could cause lasting damage by making bodily contact with anyone during three weeks of her treatment for thyroid cancer. The 27-yearold was placed in isolation in hospital, with staff banned from going within three metres of her for five days. Since being allowed home, Ms Day must avoid contact with her six-year-old daughter and one-year-old twins.

She said the ban on bodily contact was tough as her youngest children were too young to understand. "I breast-fed my twins for about five months after they were born, and I'm not used to being

away from them. It's very hard. I'm missing them so much," "I thought it was hard in hospital, but it is so much harder now because I can see them but I know I cannot touch them or cuddle them or go near them." M s D a y ' s treatment involves a form of internal radiotherapy which involves iodine 131. The element is taken as a drink or capsule which circulates the body in the bloodstream. Cancer cells pick up the iodine and are killed by radiation. The powerful and dangerous treatment is judged a lower risk than the cancer itself.

Austrian fear of heights An Austrian man tiptoed along a line strung 185 meters (607 feet) off the ground in Frankfurt, attempting to set a new world record for "highlining" despite his fear of heights. ReinhardKleindl, 32, used only his arms to balance as he walked twice along a 30-metre-long polyester rope anchored to the two wings of Frankfurt's Ushaped skyscraper Tower 185 above hundreds of cheering supporters. Kleindl said he was trying to set a new record for walking the highest urban highline, but no one was immediately available from the World Slackline Federation to

confirm if this was a new record. According to Kleindl, the previous record was set by a group of French adrenaline junkies on a line about 120 meters above the ground, between the Les Mercuriales twin towers in Paris, two years ago.

slacklines are not held rigidly taut, making it harder to balance. After completing his walks, Kleindl whooped with joy and admitted he was a bit afraid of heights. "The effect of the height was worse than I had expected. The straight lines of the building just seem to drop down into infinity," said the longhaired and bearded Austrian. Kleindl, who studied particle physics before becoming a professional slackliner, was due to repeat his walk three times d u r i n g a t w o d a y skyscraperthemed festival that started on Saturday.

Tempura tarantula on menu at bug fest Hungry? How about tempura-battered fried Tarantula for an appetizer? They're frozen then defrosted before bug chef David George Gordon cuts off the abdomen, singes off hairs with a lighter and dunks the remaining spider body into batter. "You just have to brown it up for a couple of minutes. Then I add my secret ingredient, a pinch of smoked paprika for flavour. The best parts are the legs," said Gordon, speaking at an insect cooking demonstration in


Hollywood aimed at showcasing insects as a sustainable food. Other treats being served up at the third annual Bug-A-Thon at Ripley's Believe It or Not! Hollywoods include Scorpion Scaloppine and dishes consisting of the chef's choice bugs grasshoppers, cockroaches and other savoury surprises. Considered the planet's most sustainable source of ecofriendly and inexpensive animal protein, the practice of eating insects is practiced globally by two-thirds of the world's population, said Andrea Silverman, the manager of Ripley's Hollywood, who said the demonstration aimed to spread the word about the nutritional value of bugs. "The tarantula was great. It tasted like shrimp tempura. I also tried the grasshoppers. I ate the whole thing starting with the head! It tasted like pepper!" she

She added that nutrientrich crickets provide three times the calcium and iron as beef, require hundreds of times less water to generate the same amount of protein as a cow, and reportedly taste like "nutty shrimp." "In America we're the weird ones because we don't eat bugs. We're a nation of bugbashers," said Gordon, who has authored a bug cookbook and lives in Seattle with his wife and pet tarantula. Other bugs deemed good enough to eat at the fest, include ants, worms and termites as well as caterpillars, dung beetles and wasps. "I bought these from Oaxaca, Mexico," Gordon e x p l a i n e d o f h i s favouredChapulines, or grasshoppers, that 10-year-old visitor Dylan Vaughan was brave enough to try and deemed them "good and spicy."

Essendon returns to top three with Dreamtime win over Richmond Essendon moved back into the top three with a 13.13 (91) to 9.8 (62) win over Richmond at the MCG on Saturday night. The Bombers' win in their annual Dreamtime at the 'G clash with the Tigers was marred by an ankle injury to Michael Hurley, who rolled his foot after landing awkwardly while attempting a mark in the second quarter. The game started in tight fashion with Essendon leading by just a point after the first quarter, but the lead grew unerringly in the Bombers' favour as they led by 20 at the long break, before extending that to a 34-point margin after three quarters. Richmond looked to claw some ground back in the final period as Shane Edwards, Trent Cotchin and Dustin Martin all snapped goals to bring the lead to within 20, but the Bombers

held on for a win that sees them leapfrog fourthplaced Sydney. Jobe Watson missed out on the chance to score four goals for Essendon for the first

time in his career, but still walked off the pitch as top scorer with three majors. Essendon's Paddy Ryder lauded captain Watson's effort. "When you're in the middle and he tells you where he's going to be, you know he's going to be there all the time," Ryder told Grandstand. "He's just so strong on

the ball, he gives you that security that if you're going to hit it there, Jobe's going to be there. "He's massive for our side and he's taken his game to another level." Ryder also took time to praise h i s s i d e ' s defensive shift against the Tigers. "That's something we really pride ourselves on and to stop teams from moving the ball from one end to the other," he said. "We just went out there to try and nullify [the opposition] and we've done a pretty good job at that." Jack Riewoldt scored twice for Richmond, while Brent Stanton led the match disposals count with 35 touches for the Bombers. The Tigers remain in seventh spot, tied on 20 points alongside Port Adelaide and Collingwood.

Hamburgers for life reward to man who helped Ohio kidnap victims The man made famous for putting down his Big Mac to help free three women held captive for about a decade in a Cleveland house will never have to buy a hamburger in his hometown again. More than two weeks after Charles Ramsey became an instant folk hero after telling his story to television reporters, Cleveland food blogger Michelle Venorsky said restaurants are offering him a free hamburger, whenever he wants it. Venorsky floated the idea to her followers after seeing Ramsey's first interview on TV. "He was so entertaining...I thought he should never have to pay for another meal in Cleveland again," Venorsky said in a phone interview. Since his first interview on

local TV, Ramsey, a dishwasher at a Cleveland restaurant, has become an Internet sensation. The restaurant produced a t-shirt with Ramsey's face and the words

"Cleveland Hero" on the front, netting $21,000 for a fund set up for the women, who were held captive for about a decade. Ramsey was not available for comment. He has had brushes with the law in the past, including domestic

Amanda Berry, her sixyear-old daughter, and two other women, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, were discovered in the house of former school bus driver Ariel Castro on May 6. Ramsey heard Berry's calls for help and he and others helped her escape and call 911. Castro has been charged with multiple counts of kidnapping and rape. He is in jail on an $8 million bond. One restaurant owner, Sam McNulty, said the offer of free burgers to Ramsey "is a communal high-five from the Cleveland restaurant industry." The kidnapping story has several fast food connections. Ramsey's story, with its mention of a McDonald's hamburger, won him praise from the restaurant chain. After the discovery of the women, Castro was arrested in front of a McDonald's about a mile from the house. As a school bus driver, Castro was once accused of leaving a child alone on a bus, telling the child "lie down, bitch," while he visited a Wendy's restaurant. Also, a neighbour reported seeing Castro park his school bus outside the house and bring a large bag of fast food and several drinks inside, even though he was thought to live alone. The neighbour said his mother called police, who warned Castro not to park his school bus outside the house. Lawyers said in a statement on behalf of the three women that they are "happy and safe and continue to heal."

Cronulla Sharks upset NRL-leading South Sydney Rabbitohs Dear Martha, When my brother and his ex partner were together I lent them my cot that was only 12 months old. My brother's now ex was told to return it when she was no longer using it for my nephew.. She has sold my cot to her sister. I have asked on more than one occasion to get my cot back and in the beginning she said she lent it to her sister and my suspicions were right. I have now found out she sold it to her sister. What can I do? Kirsty Dear Kirsty, What can you do? Drink a tall glass of chill out? I mean, seriously. It's a cot. Unless it was hand carved by your great grandfather I reckon you need to let it go. Sure, you can ask for it back. And you won't get it. Or, you can ask her for the money she received for the cot. And you won't get that either. So you have to decide whether the money you might have made selling the cot is worth upsetting any remaining relationship you have with this woman. She's the mother of your nephew dear. Presumably even if she and your brother are not together you will have contact with her over the coming years. Why not make it amenable? Why start a war over 500k or so Rupiah? Life's too short to have bad blood about stuff, even if someone did say they'd give it back. The cot was yours and your brother's ex sold it and pocketed the cash. It's not coming back. So move on.

Cronulla climbed into the top eight with a defensive effort that shut down competition leader South Sydney in a gritty 14-12 result at Sharks Stadium on Monday. I t w a s a n especially impressive performance given the injury-forced absence of full-back Michael Gordon and veteran forwards Paul Gallen and Luke Lewis, both of whom were late scratchings. The Sharks came into the game on the back of three straight wins and two 30-point games in a row, but it was their work at the other end of the park that saw the Rabbitohs beaten for just the second time in 2013. Cronulla hooker John Morris got the home side on the board after just four minutes but Souths hit back with winger Bryson Goodwin finishing well in the corner after good lead-up work from half-back Adam Reynolds, five-eighth John Sutton and centre Dylan Walker. Reynolds' sideline conversion did nothing to quell the

Sharks' momentum in rainy conditions. Isaac De Gois had a try ruled out after he was held up by Ben Lowe, but it was a brief reprieve for the Rabbitohs. A minute later, forward

Jayson Bukuya crossed for the Sharks' second try after a kick from five-eighth Todd Carney deflected into his path off an opposing player, helping the Sharks take a 12-6 advantage into the half-time break. South Sydney's English international lock Sam Burgess helped his side draw level shortly after the restart and it was anyone's game for much of the second half. Andrew Fifita celebrated his first call-up to the Blues' side

with a monstrous performance including 17 hit-ups, 43 tackles and 205 metres gained. Fifita had a try rubbed out for a forward pass, but he earned a match-clinching penalty when he was stripped of the ball near the Souths line. New South Wales Origin reject Carney proved the difference with a penalty goal that put the Sharks back on top for good. "We just wanted to keep the good form up," Morris said. "We've had three good weeks of footy, we're going into a bye next week and we just wanted to play well for our home fans. "We love these sort of games at Shark Park ... the greasy conditions, we could sort of stiffen up. "It was sort of in the air the boys were confident in the way we prepared for this week and we stuck to our guns. "The scoreboard showed we just got our nose in front and we've just done enough." Sutton left the field late in the game after he appeared to be tackled high by Bukuya.

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…AC/DC “She Got The Jack”

AC/DCTNT (album) T.N.T. is the second studio album by Australianhard rock band AC/DC, released in December 1975. Seven of the album's nine songs were written by Angus Young, Malcolm Young and Bon Scott. "Can I Sit Next to You Girl" was written by Angus & Malcolm Young prior to Scott's involvement in the band, and "School Days" is a cover version of a Chuck Berry song. It was originally released on Albert Productions, and was never reissued by another label. However, most of its contents were included on Atlantic Records' High Voltage album, which was released internationally in May 1976. Overview T.N.T. marked a change in direction from AC/DC's debut album, High Voltage, which was released in February 1975. Whereas High Voltage featured some experimentation with the styles of its songs and had a variety of personnel filling multiple roles, T.N.T. saw the band fully embrace the formula for which they would become famous: hard-edged, rhythm and blues-based rock and roll. They also simplified their personnel system, and would use it from then on out, which was Angus Young strictly playing lead guitar, Malcolm Young strictly playing rhythm guitar, and the drummer and bassist being the only ones to play drums and bass guitar on the albums. T.N.T. contains some of the band's best-known songs, including the title track, "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)", "The Jack", "Rocker", and "High Voltage". Three singles were released from the album – "High Voltage" (July 1975), "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" (December 1975) and "T.N.T." (March 1976). "High Voltage" was the first song written and recorded for the album, the title inspired by that of the previous album. Issued as the first single before the T.N.T. sessions began, many fans thought it was from High Voltage. Chris Gilbey of Albert Productions later claimed this caused a late surge in that album's sales. T.N.T. was released in a gatefold sleeve, with the inside depicting the various members on mock-ups of police identification cards, listing apparent aliases and partially obscured personal details including birthdates (only Bon Scott's is readily visible and Angus Young's birthyear is shown as 1959 (not 1955) in keeping with his schoolboy persona as this made him appear 16 instead of his real age of 20). T.N.T. also led to more AC/DC appearances on Australia's Countdown music programme, following those in support of the Australian High Voltage album. These appearances included a live performance of the song "T.N.T.", as well as a music video for "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)". Filmed on 23 February 1976, the video featured the band's then-current lineup, along with members of the Rats of Tobruk Pipe Band, on the back of a flat-bed truck travelling on Swanston Street in Melbourne, Australia. On 1 October 2004, Melbourne's Corporation Lane was renamed ACDC Lane as a tribute to AC/DC, with the decision being based in part on this video. T.N.T. is the only Australian AC/DC studio album for which there is no international counterpart. However, seven of its nine songs comprise the international version of High Voltage, released in May 1976. The other two, "Rocker" and "School Days", saw worldwide release as part of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap's international version (1976/1981) and the Bonfire box set (1997) respectively.

Track listing 1."It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)" – 5:15 2."Rock 'n' Roll Singer" – 5:04 3."The Jack" – 5:52 4."Live Wire" – 5:49 5."T.N.T." – 3:34 6."Rocker" – 2:55 7."Can I Sit Next to You Girl" – 4:12 8."High Voltage" – 4:00 AC/DC She's Got The Jack Lyrics She gave me the Queen, She gave me the King She was wheelin' and dealin', Just doin' her thing She was holdin' a pair, But I had to try Her Deuce was wild, But my Ace was high But how was I to know that she'd been dealt with before Said she'd never had the Full House but I should have known From the tattoo on her left leg and the garter on her right She'd have the card to bring me down if she played it right CHORUS She's got the jack, she's got the jack X 4 She's got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack She's got the jack Poker face was her name, poker face was her nature Poker straight was her game, if she knew she could get you She played 'em fast, and she played 'em hard She could close her eyes, and feel every card But how was I to know that she'd been shuffled before Said she'd never had a Royal Flush, but I should have known That all the cards were comin' from the bottom of the pack And if I'd known what she was dealin' outI'd have dealt it back SECOND CHORUS SONG END She's got the jack, she's got the jack She's got the jack, and who knows what else? She's got the jack, yeah, yeah She's got the jack, she's got the jack She's got the jack, she's got the jack She's got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack She's got the jack, She's got the jack, she's got the jack, Ooh, It was a bad deal, (Jack)She gave me the (Jack), hey She's got the (Jack), she's got the (Jack)She's got the (Jack), ooh can't you tell She's got the (Jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack) (She's got the jack, she's got the Jack) She's got the jack, she's got the Jack She's got the jack, you never know!

Brisbane looked the business when it kicked six unanswered goals to take a narrow half-time lead, but the Blues regained the momentum with four goals in the third quarter. It was a lead Carlton never let slip as both teams eked out a quiet final quarter, which saw just three majors kicked. Jarrad Waite and Kane Lucas top-scored for the Blues

with three goals each,

while Chris Judd had 26 touches and two marks. Lucas said that Blues coach Mick Malthouse gave his side a rocket after letting the Lions

back in to the match at half-time, but it allowed his side to come to grips with the job at hand. "He was a little disappointed with us letting Brisbane get in like that," Lucas said. "We just had to readjust, compose ourselves and we knew we had to come out there and scrap to try and get the momentum back.

It looked like North's game even when Adelaide made a game of it early in the final quarter, but three goals to Sam Kewrridge and majors to Jared Patrenko and Richard Douglas sealed a dramatic win for the visitors.

Wests Tigers coach Potter hails Benji Marshall's defensive efforts It was not star five-eighth Benji Marshall's characteristic attacking flair, but his efforts at the other end, that impressed Wests Tigers coach Mick Potter on Friday night. Having been rushed back into the Tigers' starting line-up after being demoted to the bench last round, Marshall scored a try and orchestrated two more in his side's 22-20 victory over North Queensland that broke a sevenmatch losing streak. T h e T i g e r s desperately needed a spark from their star, but pouring rain at Leichhardt Oval on Friday was not exactly the ideal weather for Marshall's trademark flashy playmaking. Luckily that did not matter to Potter. "What I w a s m o s t pleased about was his defence," he told Grandstand. "I thought it wasn't the game for Benji to show what sort of skill he has because of how dour it was with the conditions. "But I thought he did really well. "He came off a good run there at one stage, put a couple of people into potential space. "So he did what he needed to do and I'm very pleased for him." The Tigers get the week off next week ahead of State of Origin


I, a welcome chance for the injury-riddled club to bring back star centre Chris Lawrence. But the news was not all good on that front, with Liam Fulton (hamstring), Eddy Pettybourne (ankle) and Marika Koroibete (foot) all limping away from the win. The Tigers made a better showing than the performance they turned in against South Sydney in a 54-10 defeat last round, moving out of the

wooden spoon position in the process. The Cowboys looked for all intents and purposes like they would take the two points away from Leichhardt before David Nofoaluma's try at the death stole victory for the Tigers. Potter could not deny that the win was a weight off the shoulders of everyone in the club. "For the team and for the organisation, relief is probably the first thing that comes to mind," he admitted.

working hard over this seven or eight-week period to get a result and they've continued to do that. "We were forgetting about certain things and fundamentals and that took a lot of hard work and effort from the players tonight to put that all together. "We need to build some momentum from that and understand that that's the sort of effort that it takes to win an NRL game." Amid the Tigers' woes over the past two months in Potter's first season in control, highprofile recruit Adam Blair has copped much media criticism for his lack of form in his second year of a four-year deal. But Potter said the New Z e a l a n d international prop, whom the Daily Telegraph named one of 2012's biggest flops, was an undeserving target of negative press. "I think Adam has been unfairly criticised and he's a player who gives 100 per cent every week," Potter said. "Playing him in the middle really gives him an opportunity to show what a quality player he is. "I thought he was fantastic tonight in defence and he really generated some ruck speed for us in attack and did a

Obama in heated exchanges with protester The woman who interrupted President Barack Obama's speech on counterterrorism policy is wellknown around Washington as a perennial protester on national security issues. Medea Benjamin, a founder of anti-war women's group Code Pink, began demonstrating years ago on Capitol Hill, becoming an almost routine presence at hearings where high-ranking officials of the Bush administration appeared to talk about the Iraq war. Benjamin got into an argument with Obama, interrupting his remarks at the National Defence University repeatedly to urge him to take faster action in releasing detainees from the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "You are our commander in chief. Close Guantanamo Bay!" Benjamin shouted toward the end of Obama's address. "Why don't you sit down and I will tell you exactly what I'm going to do?" Obama replied. "Let me finish

my sentence. He called on Congress to lift the restrictions on detainee transfers and went on to discuss other steps toward closing the prison. He said he was lifting a moratorium on detainee transfers to Yemen. "Release them today!" Benjamin shouted. "It's been 11 years!" "Let me finish," Obama said. "This is part of free speech. You being able to speak, but also me listening, and me being able to speak." He was able to continue for a bit but then Benjamin demanded to know why a teenager had been killed by a U.S. drone. "Can you tell the Muslim people their lives are as precious are our lives? Can you take the drones out of the hands of the CIA? Can you stop the signature strikes?" By this point, the Secret Service was leading her away, but Benjamin continued yelling as she

left. "I love my country! I love the rule of law! The drones are making us less safe! And keeping people in indefinite detention in Guantanamo is making us less safe! Abide by the rule of law! You're a constitutional lawyer!" Obama then drew hoots of laughter when he announced he was about to go off script. "The words of that woman are worth paying attention to," he said. "Obviously I do not agree with much of what she said, and obviously she wasn't listening to me in much of what I said. But these are tough issues," Obama said. The National Defence University said Benjamin was on its list of media personnel who would be attending the address.

Brazilian driver Tony Kanaan earns emotional Indianapolis 500 victory at the Brickyard

What a hoot. Let's drive at a ridiculously fast speed a l o n g a R u s s i a n highway and see what happens.

With a good luck charm he had given to a sick child back in his pocket, Brazilian Tony Kanaan won his first Indianapolis 500 on Monday (AEST) to end a decade of disappointment at the famed Brickyard.


The former IndyCar champion captured the crown jewel of North American motor racing in his 12th attempt to complete his resume, taking the chequered flag under caution after defending champion Dario Franchitti crashed with just over two laps to go. "This is it man, I made it," Kanaan said before he dumped the traditional winner's bottle of milk over his head. "Finally I am going to put my ugly face on that trophy." Colombia's Carlos Munoz crossed the finish line second in his IndyCar racing debut followed by American Ryan Hunter-Reay. Marco Andretti, grandson of former Formula One champion and Indy 500 winner Mario Andretti, finished fourth in a furious and frenetic race that featured a record 68 lead changes, double the previous mark set in 2012. One of IndyCar's most popular figures, Kanaan had known nothing but bad luck at the sprawling 2.5 mile (4km) oval Delivery in Kuta, Legian, Tuban speedway, coming close but never able to reach Victory Lane. Kanaan's luck, however, changed when he received a min orders may apply to other areas package four days before the race containing a good luck charm OPEN FROM 10am ‘TILL 6pm he had given to a young girl nine years ago just before she was about to undergo brain surgery. The woman, now 24 years old and healthy, returned the charm back to Kanaan along with a note that read: "Here's your 0898 0137 019 good luck charm back. Now you take it and win the Indianapolis 0819 3306 0595 500." As Kanaan drove his Dallara-Chevy into a packed Victory Lane he pulled the medal out of his race suit and held it As the T-Shirt says...boys, high before he was mobbed by team mates and friends, including former series champion Alex Zanardi. Kanaan, who ran at or near the front most of the afternoon, holding the lead 15 times, was sitting second behind Hunter-Reay with six laps left when a caution flag came out after Graham Rahal slammed into the wall. On the re-start, Kanaan blew past Hunter-Reay when his luck took a dramatic change as Franchitti's crash further back in the field brought out the yellow, allowing the 38-year-old Brazilian to coast unchallenged to the finish. "I have to say, the last lap was the longest lap of my life. I wanted the pace car to hurry up so bad," said Kanaan. "I got a little bit of luck today." Zanardi, who had both legs amputated above the knee after crashing in a 2001 race, also brought Kanaan some luck, turning over the gold medal he won at the 2012 London Paralympics in hopes that some his good fortune would rub off on his friend. “Alex Zanardi gave us some luck today. He gave us his gold medal from London and told us, 'Rub this all over the car,'" said Kanaan's team owner Jimmy Vasser. "Tony took the medal to his motorhome with him for an


All goes well for a while for the group of mates as they video they thrill ride, clearly impressed with the driver's skill and their daredevil exploits. The shaky vision shows the speedo at somewhere above 130kmh, but it's hard to tell. They continue to speed along after they enter a tunnel, swerving around one or two cars. What they didn't bank on was a traffic jam across both lanes. With nowhere else to go the driver tries to squeeze his car between the two lanes of vehicles, smashing into cars on both sides and bringing the thrill seeking ride to a shuddering halt, complete with airbags deployed.

The Fremantle Dockers had it easy against the struggling Melbourne Demons, winning 19.16 (130) to 6.4 (40) at Subiaco Oval. The Dockers kicked seven in the first quarter and six more in the second as the team in purple built up a massive 71-point lead at halftime. The Demons fought hard to edge the third quarter with three goals to Fremantle's two, but it proved only the slightest of consolations as the hosts ran out 90-point winners after kicking four in the last period. Tendai Mzungu and Hayden Ballantyne both scored three for the Dockers, while David

Nico Rosberg became the first son of a former Monaco Grand Prix winner to triumph on the streets of the Mediterranean principality when he drove his Mercedes to an accomplished victory on Monday. In a chaotic race littered with accidents, a red flag and two safety car interventions, the 27year-old German - son of 1983 victor and original 'flying Finn' Keke Rosberg - produced an impeccable and flawless race to claim the second win of his career. After more than two hours and 20 minutes of contested action, he came home ahead of second placed defending triple world champion G e r m a n Sebastian Vettel and his Red Bull team-mate Australian Mark Webber. Briton Lewis Hamilton, t h e 2 0 0 8 champion and Rosberg's Mercedes team-mate, finished fourth after losing two positions due to the delayed introduction of the first safety car early in the race. It was the first win by a Mercedes works team driver at the Monaco Grand Prix since Manfred Von Brauchitsch on August 8, 1937 and came 30 years on from his father's win. Keke Rosberg was watching from the paddock. Rosberg showed a minor galaxy of celebrity guests how much concentration is required with his accomplished win as he dominated from start to finish. "Yesssss!" he screamed on the team radio after crossing the line. "Come on. I can't believe it - the car has been awesome. Thank you

- it's been very special for me today." Rosberg had started from his third successive pole position, but this time managed to convert that advantage into a victory. "Very well done, Nico," said Mercedes team chief Ross Brawn. "A fantastic job. With all the incidents going on, you managed it perfectly." German Adrian Sutil finished a strong fifth for Force India ahead of Briton Jenson Button for McLaren, two-time champion Spaniard Fernando Alonso of Ferrari. Frenchman Jean-Eric

Vergne, Briton Paul Di Resta and Finn Kimi Raikkonen rounded out the top 10. I n t h e d r i v e r s ' championship, Vettel enhanced his position as leader with 107 points ahead of Raikkonen on 86 and Alonso on 78. When the lights went out, the leading cars made a clean and untroubled start with Rosberg leading the way and Hamilton retaining second place, albeit with Vettel snapping at his heels throughout the opening laps. There was little drama until the action was halted by Felipe Massa's second major accident in little more than 24 hours, his Ferrari slamming into the barriers at Sainte Devote in a replica crash to that which he suffered in final free

This triggered the first safety car, while Massa was fitted with a surgical collar as he sat trackside. Several cars jumped into the pits with Hamilton coming in straight after Rosberg. Consequently he was delayed a few crucial seconds, allowing both Red Bulls to sneak past. Just eight laps after the safety car came in, Pastor Maldonado was squeezed into a wall by Briton Max Chilton's Marussia and, after an airborne swoop, lifted a row of barriers out of place in a dramatic crash at Tabac. This led to the race being red-flagged and the cars returning to the starting grid for running repairs. Maldonado was unhurt and walked back to the pits as the barriers were rebuilt. "It was scary," said the Latin A m e r i c a n d r i v e r. "Chilton crossed my line and it was very dangerous." After a 25minute delay, the race restarted with Chilton handed a drive-through penalty for causing the accident. But then Frenchman Romain Grosjean, who had crashed in every previous session and suffered two major collisions, rammed his Lotus into the back of Australian Daniel Ricciardo's Toro Rosso as they came out of the tunnel on lap 62 to signal a second safety car intervention. There was still time for Sergio Perez to clip Raikkonen, sending the Finn to the pits from fifth. The Lotus driver reacted with a dazzling final lap, passing three cars to take 10th and extend his points-scoring run to 23 races, one short of German Michael Schumacher's record of 24.
