BALI THE RIGHT WAY G'day again punters and welcome to the weekly, it's been an incredible week on the island with kite season almost fully underway. I think the winds from the south are blowing all the cold weather to us at the moment which is great for flying kites and saves a few quid on the aircon bills every month. I'm not sure how long it's going to last until we get back into that hot, humid sweaty time of the year again. What I do know is we are so close to the final series in the A.F.L that I can almost smell the Tipsters BBQ cooking now. The top few places are hotly contested by the looks of the board at the moment and when the mystery rounds are revealed on the day there will be a very happy camper bopping around. The weekend just passed saw a few good games with all the expected winners winning and the top four spots almost set in concrete. Moving along this week it seems the traffic has gone back to about a normal pace with the domestic holiday makers all but headed back home until the same time next year, and I must say that underpass and big round about on the bypass has worked perfectly. I think everyone is looking forward to the Toll road opening, which I believe will be a great traffic ease on the system. I've been reading story's and hearing rumours about some land reclamation that is happening to the south of the island in Benoa where a company has been given the green light to do a large development all on reclaimed wet lands. Now I'm not the full bottle on the subject but what I understand is from a business point of view the reclamation of completely useless land is the way to go as it has a great effect not only to increase the profitability of the island, but on so many levels is a win win for everyone. You only need take a look around the world at some of the massive development that has been done on reclaimed land and you'll see that these are very successful. One for instance is the Miami Keys in Florida. There are 1000s of houses that have been built on reclaimed land with entire towns and infrastructure being made available to help cater for the population as it rises.

I believe, for what it's worth that taking back a small percentage of marshland, that is now worthless and turning it into usable public space is a great idea and would be a giant step forward for the island. I heard the idea was to have first class hotels with fun parks along with high end residences and lots of open public parkland. There was even talk about considering a world class F1 track which will bring literally billions of dollars to the island. Tell me that wouldn't be a nice address while living in Bali. Anyways from what I can understand now the idea has been stopped until further notice as people aren't sure if it's a good idea. Time will tell I guess as with most things that are donehere, they are done on Bali time. I'm certain the powers that be will take the right direction for Bali in the end and life will move forwards.

Ok folks that's about my lot for the week. Over the course of the next few issues, I will share a few letters that we have received lately, with one in particular giving a blow by blow run down on a couple of stupid old expats that sat and had a few too many green bottles at the beach on sunset and ended up rolling around in the sand as a consequence. I thought, along with the rest of you that a few quiet ones in the arvy at the beach while watching a sunset was supposed to be a good thing ?? Anyways funny stuff none the less. On that note I trust the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and try to remember, Never, stumble over something behind you. Enjoy Your Week. ALIASJ………….

PROPERTY OWNERSHIP IN INDONESIA As a foreigner, there is a number of ways that can lead to you owning your dream property in Bali. The best option for you will depend on your personal situation, the type of property, risk factors and the type of investment model. Even though it states in Indonesian law that foreigners are not allowed to hold a 'freehold' land title, there are ways that have been in practice for a number of years that enable foreigners to control a freehold title indirectly or to hold a leasehold title in their own name.

RIGHT OF USE (HAK PAKAI) This is the right of use over state-owned (crown land) or property owned by public or private persons/entities for a specific purpose for (generally) a finite period and occasionally for an indefinite period. This land right may not be sold, exchanged or transferred unless explicitly state in an agreement. Hak pakai may be held by and Indonesian individual or entity. Or foreigner permanently domiciled in

Indonesia, or a foreign legal entity with a representative office in Indonesia such as foreign Banks, embassies, etc.

NOMINEE SYSTEM FOR HAK MILIK This structure is a regularly practiced procedure in Indonesia, whereby the foreigner nominates and Indonesian representative to acquire the land and to hold the 'freehold' title (Hak Milik) on behalf of the foreigner. Ownership of the land is transferred from the previous owner to the Indonesian nominee. The foreigner and the Indonesian nominee then sign an agreement which recognizes the Indonesian nominee as the legal owner of the property whilst declaring the foreigner as the rightful owner of the property. This agreement denotes that the Indonesian nominee will carry out any directives from the foreigner regarding the land. This agreement must always be concluded in the presence of a public notary.

Bali Governor Made Pastika Calls for Humane Treatment of Illegal Immigrants Bali's Governor Made Mangku Pastika has called on the public not to treat illegal immigrants landed on Bali's and detained there by authorities as criminals or evildoers. Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Pastika said: “It is very important that we understand that these people also have rights that must be respected.” The Governor's comments were made

whilst opening an international workshop in Denpasar in Bali. Admitting that the island of Bali has become an illegal transit zone for people in search of a better life by trying to enter Australia illegally, Pastika added: “Every person had the right to life, education, health, employment and equality before the law – without any discrimination. The moment we are flooded with such people will prove difficult to handle. Nonetheless, in treating these people we cannot rape them of their fundamental human rights, or imprison them like criminals. The Governor, who once served as Bali's Chief of Police, challenged Bali to make room for all visitors in keeping with the Bali's reputation as an “island of tolerance. Saying software and regulations were needed to prevent Bali from being overwhelmed with either legal or illegal visitors, he insisted that Bali couldn't refuse such people, but only seek to control and organize them.

were made in the opening address at the “Summer Institute in International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, Migration and Human Rights." The executive director of the Human Rights Resource Center (HRRC), Marzuki Darusman, echoed the governor's call, saying illegal immigrants must not be treated as criminals. Darusman said: “They must be cherished and treated well. We need to note that Bali is becoming increasingly crowded and lacks the proper facilities (for handling illegal immigrants). For this reason, the burden of caring for illegal immigrants must be shared with the National government to avoid any mishaps and mistreatment of these people.” At the same time, Darusman reminded Australia that, as an advanced nation, that must be aware that people will seek out their country as a place of hope and safe refuge.

President Yudhoyono to 'Soon' Inaugurate Bali's First Toll Road Following reports that the inauguration of Bali's new toll way connecting Benoa to Nusa Dua would be delayed due to Presidential scheduling conflicts, the Minister of Public Works Djoko Kirmanto has confirmed that the President would open Bali's new toll road sometime in the coming few weeks. Quoted by the State News Agency Antara, Kirmanto said, “The toll way over the bay that has cost Rp. 2.4 trillion will inaugurated the coming few weeks by President SBY.” Kirmanto confirmed that the toll way's construction is now

completed and its traffic worthiness certified. Adding, “In other words, the toll road connecting Benoa-Ngurah RaiNusa Dua is now ready for operation.” Commenting on the name for the Bali's first toll road, Kirmanto

toll way, the Central Government has completely surrendered that decision to the provincial government. The province knows best on what's appropriate for Bali.” Meanwhile, the Governor said the choice of a final name for the toll way must be discussed with various components of the public before a decision is taken. The governor said: “The problem of naming the road can wait until after the inauguration. We need further discussion with the public (on the naming).”

The annual festival, billed as the world's largest pot rally, is being celebrated for the first time since Washington state voters legalized recreational marijuana use last year. Officers will be distributing 1,000 bags of Doritos tortilla chips at the three-day bash with labels directing people to the department's online pot primer, "Marijwhatnow?" The guide explains that while recreational pot use is legal under Washington state's new law, it remains illegal to possess more than an ounce of the drug, smoke it in public, drive under its influence or to sell it without a license. "We thought, 'what's more ironic than police handing out

delicious snacks at a festival that celebrates pot?'" said Seattle Police Department spokesman Sgt. Sean Whitcomb. "It's a conversation starter." The groundbreaking ballot measure approved by voters last year made the Pacific Northwest state one of just two in the nation alongside Colorado to legalize recreational marijuana use.

The Journalist A journalist goes to Russia for a documentary. In a little village he sees an old man and asks him: Can you tell me your most beautiful memory in this village? The old man smiles and starts his story: One day, a long time ago, my goat got lost in the mountains. As of tradition, all the men of the village gathered to drink vodka and look for the goat. When we finally found her, as of tradition, we all drank some more vodka and all the men in the village each got their turn to f**k the goat. We had so much fun that day! The journalist thinks it would be quite inappropriate to publish such a story so he asks the old man if he doesn't have another story. The old man smiles again and says: Once, my neighbour's wife got lost in the mountains. As of tradition, all of the village's men gathered to drink vodka and then go look for her. As of tradition, when we finally found her, all the men in the village got their turn with the neighbour's wife. We had great fun !! Journalist: Ummm... Don't you have anything umm...sadder? The old man acquires a very sad expression and says: One day I got lost in the mountains.....

taking a neutral stance on the measure, which called for a stateregulated regime of marijuana growers, processors and sellers that is set to take effect next year. This year, they hope the collegial approach by the police will be mirrored by attendees, some of whom had been concerned that the initiative could negatively affect the distribution and use of medical marijuana. "It's going to be part 'protestival' and part victory celebration," said Vivian McPeak, the executive director of Hempfest, which is to set to feature 117 bands and 105 speakers on six stages this year. Police have taken a handsoff approach to marijuana use at Hempfest since at least 2003, when Seattle voters passed a measure making the enforcement of pot possession laws the lowest priority for city police officers, Whitcomb said. "There's a degree of latitude that happens every year," he said. "Our number one priority is public safety."

The Earth gains 100 tons each day.

Man finds load stashed in gun safe A man in western Ohio found nearly 300 pounds of marijuana stuffed into a Mexicanmade gunstorage safe that he recently purchased on the Internet, authorities revealed. The 1,000-pound steel safe, ordered from Champion Safe Co. of Provo, Utah, was made in Nogales, Mexico, and shipped by truck from Mexico to Champion's warehouse near Mansfield, Ohio, Shelby County Sheriff John Lenhart said. The safe was delivered on June 19 to the customer in western Ohio by an independent driver working for Champion, Lenhart said. The marijuana, tightly wrapped in 10, 28-pound packages, has an estimated street value of $420,000, according to

Lenhart. He said the truck's shipment contained 25 to 30 safes, and that all the others were free of drugs. Lenhart said his office has been working with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on the case and had decided not to

reveal it publicly to avoid impeding the investigation. Authorities are not releasing the name of the customer for personal safety reasons. The driver who delivered the safe to the customer has been cleared of any wrongdoing, but the driver who delivered the shipment from Mexico to Ohio is missing, according to Lenhart. He said the DEA normally would not be interested in what is considered by federal agents to be a relatively small amount of marijuana. But the DEA is interested in learning more about the delivery method and size of such an operation. "It's a pretty decent way of smuggling," Lenhart said. "My guess is that it's not the first time it's happened.�

This massive daily weight gain can be blamed on about 100 tons of meteoroids (fragments of dust, gravel, and even big rocks) entering the Earth's atmosphere each day. If you stand under the stars for more than half an hour on a clear night you're more than likely to see a few of these meteors. However even after centuries of watching these meteors majestically tear through the night sky and trying to make them grant our wishes, we still haven't managed to figure out where

exactly they all originate from. Do they come from the asteroid belt? Are they created in a comet's death throes?

of space junk? N A S A i s n o w attempting to answer these questions with a network of smart cameras scattered all across the United States. So far these cameras tell scientists the size of every single meteor in the night sky, track their orbits, calculate their trajectory through the atmosphere, and determine whether and if so where, they will hit Earth. H o p e f u l l y, a s t h e technology develops and as patterns are spotted, scientists will be able to pinpoint where all these meteors are coming from too.

Forty pythons rescued from motel room Canadian authorities have rescued 40 distressed pythons from a motel room where they were being improperly held in plastic storage bins, police said. Police found the snakes, ranging from 1 foot to 4-1/2 feet in length, in a motel in Brantford, a city about 100 km (62 miles) southwest of Toronto. "The snakes were not being suitably cared for and were in distress. The anxious officers called the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to

Animals who attended and took 40 pythons into their care," local police said in a statement. The snakes are expected to be fine, they said. No one at the Brantford police or at the SPCA was available for comment.

A manager at the motel said the snakes belonged to a couple who had checked into a room for one night, and who were out when police arrived. Pythons are not legal for home ownership in Brantford, according to the city's animal control bylaws. Last week, two young boys in Eastern Canada died after a 13-foot (3.96-metre), 100-lb (45-kg) python apparently attacked them in their sleep. An autopsy confirmed the two died of asphyxiation.

Man lost toes after being treated by vet A man had to have three toes amputated after being treated by a 78-year-old Colorado veterinarian with no license to practice medicine on humans, police said. The veterinarian, Francis Freemyer, who operates a small animal p r a c t i c e i n G r e e l e y, Colorado, was ticketed for "unauthorized practices," a misdemeanour, Greeley police said in a statement. Police said they were investigating whether Freemyer may have treated other people illegally. The investigation began when medical staff at the North Colorado Medical Centre contacted police in June to report that an unidentified patient claimed to have been treated by the veterinarian. "Ultimately, the patient required surgery to remove three toes due to a lack of proper medical care," the statement said.

Freemyer could not be reached for comment, but reports suggest that he had treated a woman's dog with a topical skin cancer ointment. The woman later applied the leftover salve to a male neighbour who was complaining of a foot infection, according to the interview. The man then came to Freemyer's animal clinic for a follow-up visit. "He came and talked to me, I said, 'hell, I don't treat people, but you've already put it

on there,'" Freemyer said, adding that all he did was put a wrap on the man's wound. Greely Police Sergeant Susan West said Freemyer took payment from the man. "There was an exchange of money in his office for his services," she said. A review of state board of veterinary medicine disciplinary records showed that a Francis Freemyer, who has practiced veterinary medicine in Colorado since 1959, has twice been admonished by regulators. In one instance, he was fined $1,500 for signing off on an inspection report that said he had examined and vaccinated 13 greyhounds when he had only examined 12 of the animals. In another disciplinary action, Freemyer was fined $250 for failing to keep records of the examination and treatment of a cat in violation of "generally accepted standards of veterinary practice."

Councillor barred for being 'too sexy' An Iranian city councillor has been barred from office for being "too sexy" according to reports. New President Hassan Rowhani had promised sweeping civil rights reforms, but those changes didn't come soon enough for Nina SiakhaliMoradi who was stopped from taking up her post on the Qazvin city council because her election was overturned by conservatives in Qazvin, the ancient capital of the Persian Empire, north west of Tehran. The 27-year-old polled more than 10,000 votes in the June election, finishing 14th out of 163


candidates and winning a council seat. However Ms Moradi's candidacy was vetoed by Iran's judiciary and intelligence services and the result overturned. The engineer and website designer campaigned for women's rights, restoration of the

involvement in town planning. But a Qazvin official said: "We don't want a catwalk model on the council." Ms Moradi made no play of her looks during the race. Her campaign posters showed her dressed in strict hijab without a strand of hair on display. They were still too racy for Qazvin's religious groups. The moment that her election was confirmed, conservatives launched protests demanding her disqualification. She was ultimately disqualified for not "observing Islamic norms".

Dear Martha,

Sports Corner

22 Aug - 28 Aug 2013 (350)

“ Ask Martha”

Two years ago my OH got me a kitten for my birthday. Now he has decided he hates it because it purrs too loudly, occasionally scratches the furniture, constantly wants pats and recently missed the litter tray for the first time. He is insistent the cat goes but I'm really attached to it and want to keep it. He is refusing to compromise over this simply saying that he “doesn't like animals.” I feel this is unfair as if he felt this way he shouldn't have gotten me the cat to begin with. What do I do as I don't want to lose the cat or my OH?


Upset. Dear Upset,

@ Crusoe’s Island Bar & Restaurant

What do you mean he refuses to compromise? Does that mean if you don't get rid of the cat he will pack it up while you are out and dump it on the side of the road? Or maybe a trip to the vet for a nice hot injection? I agree you don't want to have to choose between your Other Half and your cat, but seriously who buys a kitten as a present and then complains because it purrs too loudly? It sounds like your fella needs to learn a bit about long-term responsibility. And maybe buy a scratching post. Shoes and phone and t-shirts are all disposable. Animals...not so much. You buy a pet and you agree to look after it - not just until the novelty wears off. Sometimes it's true people have to re-home cats because their living circumstances change and its simply not feasible to keep the animal. But you don't just get rid of one because it's always after a pat. It's pretty clear-cut what you need to do. Refuse.....On these grounds... 1: You can't buy an animal and then give it away because you decide you don't like animals any more. 2: You can't give a gift and then give it away. It's not yours to give away. 3. Not doing it. 4. The answer is no. This way your partner has a choice of options. He can: 1. Grow up 2. Live with the cat and his decision to buy it 3. Leave you and the cat 4. Take the cat and give it away/kill it without your knowledge. In all of these options the onus is on him to take responsibility for his decisions, not just try to foist it onto you. Be aware that number 4 is a bad sign for the relationship. Come to think of it… number 3 is not so good either dear.

Miss Bunda BALINESE CARD AND 22 Aug - 28 Aug- 2013 TAROT READER Aries – March 21 to April 20 Many Rams are feeling mighty feisty, and in the mood to fight back. But this week's impulsive aspects could land you in a heap of hot water, so resist the temptation to be rebellious and antagonize authority figures. Perhaps a more subtle approach is the smarter way to go? Slow down and think things through … before you say or do something that you later regret.

Libra – September 24 to October 23 Mars and Jupiter are charging through your career zone, so dynamic and decisive action is what's needed at work. If you dither around [in typical Libran fashion] then lucrative opportunities and important connections will pass you by. If you are looking for employment, you need to be uncharacteristically proactive as you search out jobs before they are advertised.

Taurus – April 21 to May 21 The Full Moon lights up your Brilliant Career zone [for the second time in the last month]. But are you making the most of the opportunities that are around? Don't be a bashful Bull … show others what you are capable of. Things become intense on Saturday, as you worry about a close relationship. The more possessive you are, the more difficult the day will be.

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22 With Saturn moving slowly through Scorpio, resist the temptation to be too hard on yourself [and overly impressed by the outward trappings of material success]. Strive to be as authentic as possible … true to your talents and core values. Be inspired by birthday great Coco Chanel “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something but to be someone.” Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21 Jupiter squares Uranus mid-week, so be careful your spontaneous Sagittarian side doesn't land you in unexpected trouble! Plus be extra patient when dealing with a willful child, teenager or friend. Clear communication sees you zoom ahead at work, as you find a captivating new audience for your creative ideas. The weekend is wonderful for sporting pursuits and outdoor activities.

Gemini – May 22 to June 21 Is your cash flow erratic at the moment? With Mars and Jupiter jumping through your money zone, look for proactive solutions to financial problems. If you develop a second stream of income, then you'll feel much more secure. Mercury moves through your family zone [from August 24 until September 9] so it's time to get talking – really talking – with a loved one. Cancer – June 22 to July 23 A work situation [or professional relationship] is likely to veer off in a totally unexpected direction, so keep your adaptability muscles well-flexed [and try to relax]. If you sweat the small stuff, it will be a long and exhausting week. Jupiter encourages you to step back and take a broader perspective. Sunday suits all forms of communication, but avoid being a snappy Crab.

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20 Capricorns thrive on being self-sufficient and in control but, with Venus visiting your career zone [until September 11] teamwork and consultation will get you where you want to go. Look for a person you can collaborate with, on a project that is close to your heart. And don't be too proud to ask for assistance when you need it … others will be happy to lend a helping hand.

Leo – July 24 to August 23 Expect a fabulously frantic week, as the Full Moon fires up your relationship zone and loved ones demand more of your time, energy and undivided attention. Plus Mercury hooks up with the Sun on Sunday, which increases your Cat curiosity [and your tendency to gossip and spill secrets]. But is that a wise thing to do? Just remember Leo … loose lips sink ships!

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19 The Full Moon's in your sign [plus Uranus squares Jupiter] which will amplify your restless Aquarian nature. But too much chaos and haste could lead to an argument or accident, so pace yourself. When it comes to a money matter, are you being overconfident? Make sure financial plans are based on a realistic appraisal of the situation [and the risks involved].

Virgo – August 24 to September 23 You're searching for stability but that's the last thing you'll get from loved ones this week. A goal or dream is also uncertain, as you strive to adapt to changing circumstances. Mercury visits Virgo [from August 24-September 9] which suits critical thinking; research work; facts and figures; plus practical projects. But don't let minor details blind you to the bigger picture.

Pisces – February 20 to March 20 A goal or aspiration has been put on hold but that's OK. It gives you extra time to think things through and calibrate your plans. If you are still struggling for direction, look within for guidance and inspiration. When it comes to communicating important ideas, resist the urge to launch into long and obscure explanations. Strive to be more verbally precise Pisces!

Welcome to the Kuta Weekly's


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…Chubby Checker”The TWIST”

“The Twist” Chubby Checker "The Twist" is a song that gave birth to the Twistdance craze. The song was written and originally released in early 1959 by Hank Ballard and the Midnighters as a B-side to "Teardrops on Your Letter" but his version was only a moderate 1960 hit, peaking at #28 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song, and the dance the Twist, was popularized in 1960 when the song was covered by Chubby Checker. His single became a hit, reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 19, 1960 (one week) and then setting a record by being the only single to reach #1 in two different chart runs when it resurfaced and topped the chart again on January 13, 1962 (two weeks). In 1988, "The Twist" became popular once again, due to a new recording of the song by The Fat Boys featuring Chubby Checker. This version reached #2 in the United Kingdom and #1 in Germany.

History Songs about doing the Twist went back to nineteenth-century minstrelsy, including "Grape Vine Twist" from around 1844. In 1938 Jelly Roll Morton, in "Winin' Boy Blues," sang, "Mama, mama, look at sis, she's out on the levee doing the double twist"a reference to both sex and dancing in those days. As for this particular song, "The Twist," Hank Ballard's guitarist, Midnighters member Cal Green, said they picked up the general idea from Brother Joe Wallace of the gospel group The Sensational Nightingales, who of course couldn't record it himself. Green and Ballard already had written a song together called "Is Your Love For Real," which they'd taken from Clyde McPhatter and The Drifters' 1955 song "What'cha Gonna Do," so they simply put the new Twist words to the older melody. They originally recorded a loose version of the song in a Florida studio in early 1958, with slightly different lyrics, featuring Green on guitar playing like Jimmy Reed. However, they didn't get around to recording the released version until November 11, 1958, when the Midnighters were in Cincinnati. Ballard thought "The Twist" was the hit side, but King Records producer Henry Glover preferred the ballad "Teardrops on Your Letter," which he'd written himself.

Chubby Checker version The song became popular on a Baltimore television dance show hosted by local DJ Buddy Dean. Dean recommended the song to Dick Clark, host of the national American Bandstand. When the song proved popular with his audience, Clark attempted to book Ballard to perform on t h e s h o w. B a l l a r d w a s unavailable, and Clark searched for a local artist to record the song. He settled on

Checker, whose voice was very similar to Ballard's. Checker's version featured Buddy Savitt on sax and Ellis Tollin on drums, with backing vocals by the Dreamlovers. Exposure for the song on American Bandstand and on The Dick Clark Saturday Night Show helped propel the song to the top of the American charts. In 1962, the twist craze belatedly caught on in high society. Citings of celebrities doing the dance made the song a hit with adults, particularly after a report in the Cholly Knickerbocker gossip column. Soon there were long lines at the Peppermint Lounge nightclub in New York, the most popular celebrity twisting spot. This new interest made "The Twist" the only recording to hit number one on the United States charts during two separate chart runs, and marked a major turning point for adult acceptance of rock and roll music.

The Twist Lyrics Come on, baby, let's do the twist Come on, baby, let's do the twist Take me by my little hand and go like this Yeah, twist, baby, baby Twist, ooh yeah, just like this Come on, little miss, and do the twist My daddy is sleepin' and mama ain't around Yeah, daddy's just sleepin' and mama ain't around We're gonna twisty, twisty, twisty Till we tear the house down Come on and twist, yeah, baby Twist, ooh yeah, just like this Come on, little miss, and do the twist, yeah Yeah, you should see my little sis You should see my, my little sis She really knows how to rock She knows how to twist Come on and twist, yeah, baby Twist, ooh yeah, just like this Come on, little miss, and do the twist Yeah, rock on now Yeah, twist on now, twist

Fremantle seals top-four spot with big wins over Melbourne Fremantle has confirmed its top four status with a crushing 95-point win over Melbourne at the MCG on Sunday afternoon that keeps them in the mix for a place in the top two. Led by a four-goal performances from Hayden Ballantyne and Matthew Pavlich, the Dockers tuned up for the finals with a 20.13 (133) to 5.8 (38) victory. Fremantle was dominant in most areas of the game against the cellardwelling Demons, winning the clearances and stoppages and swamping the Melbourne defence with 64 forward 50 entries to 39. The Dockers led by 27 points at quarter-time, 31 points at the half and 58 points at three quarter-time before going on with the job in the final term. An outclassed Melbourne outfit scored just one goal in the second half

and just one behind in the final quarter. Pavlich looked in excellent touch in only his second game back after suspension with 18 disposals, eight marks and 4.1 to his name. He told Grandstand the Dockers had gone to the MCG with standards to meet regardless of the final margin. "We came here today with a focus on improving our footy and not leaving anything out there," Pavlich said. "We didn't want to take the foot off

uncompromising in the way they approached the footy." Pavlich has only played seven games this season, and he was keen to ensure he was in the right shape for finals. "I have to make the most of the next couple of weeks ... to make sure I'm ready to go come the business end of the season," he said. "To run out the game today, playing hard in the last quarter really gives me confidence." The Dockers had some injury problems, with Aaron Sandilands subbed off early after being struck in the head by an elbow from a Melbourne player in a marking contest, while Ballantyne came off the ground close to full-time with a shoulder injury. "Ross (Lyon) said that it (Sandilands' diagnosis) is in the hands of the doctors, concussion plus a laceration or cut, I don't know," Pavlich said.

The World's Smallest Horse.

The world's smallest horse, Einstein is a pint sized stallion.A three years old stallion is just 14 inches high and weighs only 6 lbs. This incredible creature was born in Barnstead, New Hampshire.The size of Einstein is very tiny for this breed of horses.Her mother Finesse is 32 inches whereas her father, Painter Feather is 30 inches high. The smallest stallion is very famous in humans as is not very tiny to fit in humans breed.Einstein has overcome all the challenges faced to be born as the smallest.While the doctors say that she is not the victim of dwarfism and will grow soon.According to Guinness Book Records, the smallest horse listed is the one born with the weight of only 9 lbs.

Swans overcome Saints challenge at SCG The Swans were pushed early, but eventually asserted their superiority in the second half to win 18.10 (118) to 8.11 (59). The teams kicked two goals each in a slow opening term, before Sydney established a 14-point lead at the main break after a four goal to two second quarter. But Sydney then kicked 12 goals to four in the second half to secure an expected win. Swans spearhead Kurt Tippett was again the leading goalkicker with five majors, but he was backed up with three goals from Jesse White and two goals each from five other players. Jack Steven and Nick Riewoldt kicked two goals each for the Saints. The biggest cheer of the day came late in the third quarter when Gary Rohan was subbed on for his first game for the Swans in more than 480 days since he broke his leg against North Melbourne in April 2012. The Swans have two big games to end the home-and-away season, playing Geelong next week and Hawthorn in round 23.


Swans on-baller Josh Kennedy had a brilliant game, with 36 disposals including 22 contested possessions. He told Grandstand it was good for Sydney to get back in some form after a big loss to Collingwood last week. "We were a bit sloppy early ... but to get really going in the second half and kick away is a credit to the mindset we had all week," he said. "We always have a great contest against St Kilda in recent times, the margin probably doesn't reflect the fierceness at the contest. "They hit in (at the contest) ... it was a

really physical game. Kennedy said there was no looking ahead to next week's clash with Geelong even when the game was won in the final quarter. "It was just good to be out there at the SCG with the crowd getting into it, Gary Rohan coming back ignited that ... "I probably don't need words (for the impact of Rohan's return) being here today (you saw) the crowd got right round him." Kennedy said it was possible that he and his team-mates were trying too hard to find Tippett up forward rather than looking for alternative routes to goal. "It's something we might have to address in the course of the next couple of weeks," he told Grandstand. "The positive is we've got ourselves a top four finish, but we've got a couple of big games coming up." St Kilda remains in 16th place on the ladder with just three wins for the season.

The case for the prosecution argued for the charge of Murder, putting it to the court that, late one weekday evening as Mrs Flannery was reading a Jackie Collins novel in bed and unwinding for sleep, she was suddenly and forcibly pinned under the duvet by Mr Flannery, who sealed the edges with his weight while simultaneously releasing an enormous bolus of flatulence, which displaced all the available oxygen so that Mrs Flannery passed out nearly instantly, and was dead within 30 seconds. Arguing for the defence, Mr Cavendish QC, stated that Mr Flannery was deeply upset and regretful. The incident was intended as a light-hearted practical joke, indeed it was the first time Mr Flannery had even tried what is commonly known on the street as a 'Dutch Oven', and even then only after hearing some friends talking one evening in the pub after

trapped wind, which he released within a 6 inch proximity of Mrs Flannery's face, came in at around 6 litres gas of 95% methane by volume. During sentencing, the judge, The Hon Dame Roberts, said, "I accept that you did not intend that your wife should die in this manner, and I note both your grief and regret, which is why I will suspend your sentence on the grounds of time already served. Nonetheless, the conviction remains, in the hope that you will be an example to other husbands and boyfriends across the UK, and a ray of light to their long suffering wives and girlfriends, that this frankly gross, and often dangerous practice can no longer be taken lightly, or risk facing such tragic consequences as you have." Outside the court, an emotional and weary Mr Flannery said, "I am truly very sorry for what I did to my wife, and living with the guilt of what I've done is punishment enough. I just hope that others will learn from my mistake. I swear, I will never, ever fart in a woman's face again. At least, not in private."


Mr Brian Flannery was convicted of 2nd Degree Manslaughter at Peckham Crown Court, receiving a 5 year suspended sentence for the accidental death of his wife, Gloria Flannery, by toxic suffocation, after he gave her a 'Dutch Oven' that went, as the Judge described it, 'horribly, horribly wrong'.

The first being Mrs Flannery's military tucking in of the 600 weight cotton sheets when she made the bed that morning, which created a near airtight seal. S e c o n d l y, M r Flannery had neglected to remember that he had attended a long business lunch at an Indian restaurant, at which he had consumed a dozen onion Bajees, eight Poppadom, six Samosas, and an extra-large beef Vindaloo with garlic naan, all washed down with 8 pints of Guinness beer.

Late blitz gives Bulldogs win over the Crows Western Bulldogs forward Tory Dickson produced a stunning last-quarter burst to notch a career-best sixgoal haul in the 20.11 (131) to 17.12 (114) win over the Crows. The win in Adam Cooney's 200th game, gave the Bulldogs three wins from their past four matches and seven so far this season, just one fewer than the Crows. Along with Dickson's six, big man Tom Campbell kicked four majors for the Dogs while young midfielder Tom Liberatore amassed 30 disposals to continue his fine season. The Bulldogs led for much of the day, bursting to a three-goal lead at quarter-time after kicking three goals in four minutes late in the term. But the Crows lifted the pressure in the second and third quarters. They kicked two quick goals late in the first half to cut the margin to five points. Then, after the Dogs again skipped 17 points clear early in the third

term, Adelaide put on a run of six unanswered goals in 18 minutes to build a 22-point lead. They dominated the midfield for the quarter, taking the ball inside their attacking 50m arc 18 times to the Dogs' eight for the term. Bernie Vince, Richard Douglas and Patrick Dangerfield all had a big quarter, with 24 disposals and nine clearances between them for the term, as Adelaide's hard work in the packs and hard running gave them the ascendancy. But the Bulldogs kept themselves in touch with goals to Dickson and Campbell late in the

term to make the gap nine points at the last change. It took just three minutes of the final quarter for the Dogs to hit the front, Cooney setting up Daniel Giansiracusa for a major then kicking one himself. The Crows hit back with goals to Tom Lynch and Ian Callinan to take a seven-point lead. But Dickson answered with three goals in six minutes, from a clever left-foot snap, a free kick and a mark. And Mitch Wallis and Koby Stevens quickly made it five in a row and a four-goal lead for the resurgent Bulldogs early in time-on to seal victory. Ruckman Will Minson was a key for the Dogs, with his tapwork particularly influential in the last-term surge. Vince and Douglas were two of the Crows' best, while Andy Otten and Ian Callinan were dangerous up forward with three goals each.

"I accept that emotion is a big part of our game but that is not an excuse for making unwarranted attacks on match officials," the NRL's head of football, Todd Greenberg, said in the statement. "There needs to be a balance between coach's expressing their opinions and their emotions and showing respect for the game and



Manly coach Toovey questioned the standard of refereeing in the league after the 22-10 loss on Friday night, in particular citing the decision not to award a try to Steve Matai in the 52nd minute because of inconclusive evidence of grounding. "I just think today the officials determined the outcome of the game, not the two teams in the middle" Toovey said after the match. "Aren't we meant to have the best referees for this game. Are they the best referees we have?". On Monday afternoon the NRL released a statement outlining the

the match officials in that process." The league's referees elite performance manager, Daniel Anderson, defended the performance of match officials Shayne Hayne and Henry Perenara. "The performance of the match officials in a fiercely contested game on Friday night was very good," Anderson said. "With the Steve Matai ruling, the officials followed the proper procedures in the video review process and arrived at the correct decision. "The referee on the field ruled the player grounded the ball short and was then held up and there was insufficient video evidence to warrant over-ruling that decision." Manly will have five working days to make submissions relating to the breach notice.


The NRL has issued Manly with a breach notice, giving them a $10,000 fine for Geoff Toovey's post-match comments about the officiating in the Sea Eagles' loss to South Sydney.

Fork stuck in man's penis Canberra doctors removed a 10centimetre fork from inside an elderly man's penis after a bizarre sexual mishap. The 70-year-old arrived at the Canberra Hospital emergency d e p a rtme n t w i th a bleeding sexual organ. He told doctors he had inserted the 10cm dining fork into his urethra almost 12 hours earlier in an attempt to achieve sexual gratification. But the utensil became stuck. The fork was not visible but doctors were able to feel it from the outside and X-rays showed its position. Doctors considered several retrieval options before deciding to pull the fork free using forceps and "copious lubrication" while the patient was under a general anesthetic. The elderly patient was then sent home. The medical emergency was so rare the team of three doctors published the case in The International Journal of Surgery last month. The paper, titled "An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body", said it was rare to see objects lodged in the

lower urinary tract. It went on to list strange objects found inside other parts of the body, including needles, pencils, wire, allen keys, toothbrushes, light bulbs, thermometers, plants and vegetables, leeches, snakes, cocaine and glue. "It is apparent that the human mind is uninhibited let alone creative," the authors wrote. T h e m e d i c a l team,Krishanth Naidu, Maurice Mulcahy and Amanda Chung, said the fork case was published to create discussion among the medical fraternity "given the great management challenge faced by the oddity and infrequency with which a fork is encountered in the penile urethra". The doctors said the motives for inserting objects into the sensitive region were difficult

to comprehend. "The practice manifests primarily during states of pathological masturbation, substance abuse and intoxication and as a result of p s y c h o l o g i c a l compounders. "Autoerotic stimulation with the aid of self-inserted urethral foreign bodies has been existent since time immemorial and have presented an unusual but known presentation to urologists." They said embarrassed patients usually attempted to retrieve the item themselves, risking urethral injury and foreign body migration. The real danger was infection leading to death, because ashamed patients often delay medical treatment, they said. Doctors generally try to avoid surgery in such situations, instead choosing an option that would minimizeurothelial trauma and preserve erectile function. The authors said self-inserted male urethral foreign bodies are rare emergencies that urological and general surgeons face on occasion. While the insertions are unusual, the paper said "any imaginable object is known to be implicated".

Students forced to wear 'blinkers' in exams Teachers at a top Thailand university have gone to extraordinary lengths to ensure none of their students cheat during exams. A picture has emerged on Facebook showing rows of students sitting an exam, wearing bizarre headgear complete with paper flaps on either side to prevent them looking at each other's answers. The university board said the "blinker hats" were not intended to humiliate students. Nearly 100 students were pictured wearing the hats during an exam.The board has since issued an apology.It said the hats were considered necessary because the room was small.

Prime Minister David Cameron's Conservatives and their coalition partners, the Liberal Democrats, initially divided Joan Edwards' money between them, saying it had been

protests from newspapers and MPs who said Edwards had intended to help the nation, not political parties. In a copy of the will, Edwards, 90, left her wealth to

"whichever government is in office at the date of my death for the government in their absolute discretion to use as they think fit". The bequest made Edwards the biggest donor to the two parties in the second quarter. Conservative MP Zac Goldsmith said "no one can truly believe this lady wanted her money squandered on electioneering". Britain goes to the polls in May 2015. Party funding is a perennial source of controversy in British politics. Parties must declare all donations over 7,500 pounds to the electoral watchdog. The Edwards bequest was disclosed in the watchdog's quarterly report.

Polar Bear Free To Good Home A Pennsylvania restaurant owner is trying to find a good home for an 8-foot stuffed polar bear. For years, patrons of the Woods Creek Grill outside of Harrisburg have enjoyed posing for pictures with the bear, which was legally shot in Alaska in 1967. Restaurant owner Dave DeWees bought the bear and other mounted animals at auctions. "We wanted things people could come in and see, things they could walk up to," he said. "I can't tell you how many hundreds of people had their photograph taken with her,"

But when he shifted careers and decided to sell the restaurant, he learned that the law on bears has shifted, too.

Now, the bear can't cross state lines or be sold to someone in another country because of endangered species laws, even though it was shot almost 50 years ago. An ad for the bear appeared recently in the classified section of the PatriotNews. DeWees' father, Ken, said he's gotten several calls asking if the advertisement is for real. It would be illegal for DeWees to sell the bear even in Pennsylvania without proper documentation that it was shot legally in 1967. The original hunter was meticulous, and there are folders of information documenting where and when the bear was taken.DeWees said the polar bear is a good example of the species.

NRL greats Andrew Johns and Peter Sterling say Jeff Lima penalty was soft punishment


NRL greats have slammed the soft one-game ban handed to South Sydney prop Jeff Lima for his ugly leg twist on Manly back-rower Anthony Watmough. The Rabbitohs wasted little time in pleading guilty to the grade-two dangerous contact charge for an act rugby league immortal Andrew Johns described as "a deliberate act to try and maim and hurt an opposition player who's helpless". Lima attracted widespread condemnation for his attack on Watmough, who made an unexpected return to face the Rabbitohs after hyper-extending his knee a week earlier against the Warriors. Speaking on Sydney Radio, Johns and fellow rugby league great Peter Sterling said the former Kiwi Test representative got off lightly over the incident Manly coach Geoff Toovey described as "suspicious". "I'd be buying a lottery ticket if I was Jeff Lima," Sterling said. "The leg only twisted because Jeff Lima twisted it, not because the tackle was actually turning and he went with it. "That to me made him guilty of a very, very nasty incident." Wrestling tactics have become more and more prevalent in the game in recent times, with the twisting of arms, legs and even heads a feature of many tackles. Johns, who is an assistant coach with the Sea Eagles, claimed Lima's tackle went against the spirit of the game. "It's a cheap shot," Johns said. "(Former leading referee) Bill Harrigan said he should get ten weeks. "It would stop guys coming in and yanking at legs." Ban is bad news for depleted Rabbitohs The Rabbitohs had until midday on Wednesday to decide whether to cop the one-week ban or risk an extra match by contesting the charge at the NRL judiciary. Instead they took just a few hours to make the call that will rule Lima out of Friday's blockbuster clash against Canterbury. It further depletes a Rabbitohs pack already missing Sam Burgess, who is serving the last week of his two-match ban for his squirrel grip on Melbourne's Will Chambers. While many former players called for a longer ban for Lima, the grade two charge was the same handed to Canterbury centre Krisnan Inu for his "scorpian" tackle on Newcastle's James

While Watmough finished Friday night's match - which the Rabbitohs won 22-10 - Toovey said he remained in doubt for Sunday's trip to Canberra. There was some good news for the Sea Eagles with winger Jorge Taufua cleared over his hit on Souths hooker Isaac Luke. Replays seemed to suggest Taufua hit Luke with a shoulder charge, but the match review committee claimed the winger was attempting to make a tackle in collecting the Rabbitohs number nine.

Adrian Buchan plays his ace to upstage 11-times world surfing champion Kelly Slater at Teahupo'o Australia's Adrian 'Ace' Buchan has beaten 11-time world champion Kelly Slater in the final of the Billabong Pro surfing event at Teahupo'o in Tahiti. Buchan's giant-killing run included the scalps of countryman Mick Fanning and South Africa's Jordy Smith before he beat Slater 18.94 points to 17.9 points in the final. It is Buchan's second tour victory. In his first, in France in 2008, he also beat Slater in the decider. Australia's reigning world champion Joel Parkinson was beaten by Slater in the fifth round in a severe dent to his chances of retaining his world crown this year. Slater will become the new

rankings leader, ahead of Fanning, while Buchan of Avoca Beach on the New South Wales Central Coast has broken into the top 10 after the sixth of 10 events in 2013. Buchan set the standard in the final scoring an early 9.67 out of 10 tube ride before Slater responded with a 9.27. Buchan backed up his first score with a 9.27 and was relieved when Slater's final wave score (8.80)

the heat. "I thought he snatched it from me at the end," Buchan said after his win. "I can't believe it. It hasn't sunk in yet. What an incredible day." "I thought that I stepped it up today and I had to, to beat the likes of Kelly and Jon Jon (Florence)." Buchan beat Hawaiian rising star Florence in the quarter-finals before eliminating Australian twotime world champion Mick Fanning in the semi-finals. An emotional Buchan dedicated the win to the Tahitian family he has stayed with while competing at Teahupo'o for the past eight years. "This trophy is for them and it'll stay at their house forever."
