Bittersweet Memories of Italy As Costa Concordia Righted by Salvage Experts, a Balinese Former Crewmember Waits for His Life to Get Back on an Even Keel While the world watched the righting and refloating of the Costa Concordia in Italy this past week, the news coverage must have been especially bittersweet for a 32-yearold Balinese man, Nyoman Juniartha. When the Costa Concordia sank on January 14, 2012, Juniartha was numberd among the casualties. A member of the ship's crew, Nyoman fell 12-meters as the ship capsized. Hospitalized for six months the young Balinese man spent 6-months in Italian hospitals in Siene, and later in Rome. It was only

in July of 2012 that the Balinese crew member was allowed to return to Bali, accompanied on his flight by an Italian nurse. In the capsizing, Nyoman Juniartha suffered numerous injuries that included a broken backbone and a severed nerve that has left him confined to a wheelchair with no feeling below his waist. As reported by NusaBali, since his return to Bali in the middle of last year, Juniartha has visited a number of doctors and medical centers seeking a “miracle” medical treatment that would somehow restore the full use of his legs. Disheartened by a lack of progress, Nyoman has recently

physical therapy sessions. Also, as result of his accident, Nyoman Juniartha's plans to marry his 25-year-old sweetheart, Ni Nengah Pariani, have been put on hold. The couple were originally schedule to marry in February 2012, one month after the ship's tragic grounding. Since his homecoming, Nyoman Juniartha has also managed to move from his parent's simple home in Sanur to a new, more spacious house purchased on Jalan Sedap Malam in Denpasar where he spends his days in a wheelchair accompanied by his ever-faithful Nengah Pariani.

Continued from page 1 The President said: “The Jalan Tol Bali Mandara will become a new tourism icon for Bali. I ask the people of Bali to care for this road well in order to increase the public welfare of the people of Bali.” Speaking also at the inauguration, Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika declared the new roadway as the “most beautiful toll road in the world.” He told the audience that Bali's first toll road has the potential of becoming a destination in its own right on the island of Bali.

Pastika said that from its inception the toll way built over Benoa Bay was constructed in line with the concept of being strong, green and beautiful. “This has become a new tourism object and, moreover, a new tourism icon in South Bali,” explained the Governor. The governor told the audience attending the inauguration event that Bali Mandara has already planted 16,000 trees in the surrounding mangrove. These trees, he assured, will be cared for until they

reach maturity. He insisted that the 12.7 kilometer long roadway has not disturbed Bali's ecosystem, has not interfered with the activites of fishermen, and does not disturb flight traffic patterns at the nearby airport. “From the toll way people can enjoy sunsets, the greenness of the mangrove, the passing aircraft above and the activities of fishermen shining in the dusk of evening,” boasted Governor Pastika.

G'day again folks and welcome to the Grand Final 2013 edition of the Kuta Weekly,with most pubs, clubs and bars getting those extra few crates on ice early, ready for Saturdays clash. It was great to see the Dockers get so far up in the rank and take a spot for the chance to get the first flag for the club. They haven't been this close in their history and have a great chance at a premiership win, however the Hawks can be a tricky side to beat, with a damn sight more finals experience. If Saturdays game after the tipsters wind up is anything to judge a winner on then the tote would have to be about even. Let's see how Ferrets Hawks go with Freo firing on all cylinders. Go Freo I say.

Just touching back on the Kuta Town Houses tipsters wind up party, I think I speak for everyone in saying that the Crayfish and prawns would have to be about the best quality anyone has seen in Bali at a wind up party in a very long time. It's a credit to the powers that be for putting on such a massive spread. I have been asked to pass on a big thank you to all tipsters for making the day a great one and a big congratulations goes out to Mr Phil and Mr Andrew who won even first place and as is tradition “BOTH” whacked a million on the bar for all to consume (Well Done Hollywood) Ok folks with the Grand final this weekend I thought I might remind you about our great sponsors that are holding different events for the weekend with the first being of course the home of AFL in Bali, The Kuta Townhouses. These guys as usual have the staff and the facilities for anyone to enjoy a great day, with the pools and open areas to lounge around in and probably one of the best pub grub menus in Kuta its sure to be packed so get in early. The next one on the list is Moo Moo's bar and grill with their 200 inch screen along with heaps of teles dotted around the place which makes watching the game that much better. I did hear a whisper that the beers are going to be 10k for a time during the day. They have a great name for steaks and are arguably one o the best places to eat in Kuta if you like steak. There is tonnes of comfy seating and will rock on into the night with entertainment planned for the after party. One of the better places for the family to go as Moo Moo's have a dedicated and secure kids area with Play stations and teles and lots of activities to keep the billy lids busy while the adults watch the game. Another good pick is Bamboo Bar and Grill, who won't get away without a mention, as sitting up at the bar and enjoying the game is too easy there with that huge fan keeping the place at a nice temperature all day. These guys are auctioning a few very rare cricket bats to help raise some much needed coin for little Komang before and after the game, so get down and throw a proxy bid on or get in there and throw a bid on the day. Well done Bamboo.

Crusoe's on Legian Street can't go without a plug as they have been in the game for a while and have a few great surprises happening., along with a rather respectable television system, also Blue Skyz bar on Legian Street isn't too bad if you're looking to sit and enjoy the clash in a great bar environment. For those of us that can't be bothered getting in the traffic and live or are keen to check out the Jimbaran Nusa Dua area, Meads Beach Bar & Grill has to be the number one shot. The screens are about everywhere and the beer is always cold. Great food, service and comfy big arse padded stools with seating for about 200 people. So there you go folks, if there isn't anywhere you can find that suits you I suggest you get on a plane and fly to Melbourne and attend the game live. I hope you all get in and grab a few drinks at one of our sponsors as without them there is no Kuta Weekly. Thanks to the lot of you for the support. Ok folks I'll let you go about your week in paradise, and do hope that the Dockers get up and belt those Hawks on Saturday. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy healthy and try to remember, Waste your money and you're only out of money, but waste your time and you've lost a part of your life. 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.

Change of Directions on Bali Roads Many U-turn Points along Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai Closed to Ease Traffic Flows During APEC In order to reduce traffic congestion on the runup to the APEC Conference, police will close a large number of U-turn points along Jalan By Pass Ngurah Rai, beginning from To h p a t i i n E a s t Denpasar to the southernmost end of the road in Nusa Dua. Police have also said they will be increasing the height of the median divide on the road in selected areas in order to deter illegal crossings and U-turns. The Director of Traffic at the Bali Police Headquarters, Commissioner Benone Jesaia Louhenapessy, who also serves as the chairman of the Public Transport and Road Forum for Bali said, “This is the result of an agreement reached after a survey was conducted by the Public Transport and Road Forum. The traffic jams along this road results from too many U-turn points where vehicles stop and wait for a chance to reverse direction.” As reported by DenPost, the survey was conducted to determine the potential for traffic jams and help identify areas prone to accidents. “There are more than ten U-turn point that were identified as excessive,"

The Bali Post cites that corruptions is on the increase in Bali, calling for the recent appointment of Brigadier General Julius Benny Mokalu as the Island's new Chief of Police to provide an impetus to improve the image of the Bali police by bringing a new aggressiveness to the style in which criminal corruption cases are handled. The Bali Post declared that a new commitment must be found to improve the current image of the police as the most corrupt agency of the government. The chairman of the NGO National Committee to the Rescue of National Assets (Komnas PAN) in Klungkung, Made Raka Adnyana, said,

Bali Police Asked to Improve Poor Image by Pursuing HighProfile Corruption Cases

that the police force in Bali must find the courage to change their corrupt image. He said this could be achieved by being bolder in handling unsolved major cases. Regardless of the details and those involved in any corruption case, the police must be proactive in their enforcement in order to restore public faith in the Bali police. Making his point, Adnyana added: “It's like the case in Klungkung for the pier at Gunaksa. There were indications of corruptions since 2007. Only after the prosecutors took charge in 2013 did the Bali Police Headquarters rush to begin to investigate the case. Confusion resulted.” This was also confirmed by Made Raja who told The Bali Post how the police only called him to give a statement in the Gunaksa case after prosecutors had begun busily investigating the matter. Made Raja said the police in Bali must be more aggressive and intensive in handling cases, particularly large-scale corruption cases. Raja added that police were merely trying to achieve a targeted number of cases by selectively pursuing only smaller cases involving village chiefs, subak heads and other

small fry. He warned that this course of action by the police would do nothing to change the very poor image of the police. The anti-corruption movement in the regency of Tabanan is also looking hopefully to the change of command in the Bali police in order to clear the backlog of longneglected cases. That was the hope expressed by the coordinator of the Movement for Public Morality (GMT), Ketut Semadha Putra. Semadha called on Bali's new chief of police to be more proactive in solving a number of corruption cases, including suspicions of subterfuge surrounding plans for the reclamation of Benoa Bay; the pier project at Gunaksa in Klungkung; and irregularities in the construction of housing for government employees in Tabanan. Semadha also cited the case of land acquisition for the Nyitdah International Hospital project. Semadha added: ”With the new chief of police, we hope for stronger law enforcement against corruption. Let there be an end to the reluctance to take action.”

Arguably one of the most spectacular aircraft stunts ever was performed by Canadian Rick Rojatt dressed up as comic book super hero the Human Fly. In the early 1970s Rojatt teamed with famous US pilot Clay Lacy to ride atop a four-engine Douglas DC-8. The stunt was performed several times at speeds of up to

300mph (480km/hour), mainly in California. Lacy, number one pilot for United Airlines when he retired is one

of the most experienced pilots of the modern era and flew the DC8 as low as 200ft in a high speed pass that thrilled crowds. Very few pictures exist of the event and until recently no video was available. However Clay Lacy Aviation has recently released a 23-minute video of the event. Clay Lacy Aviation is arguably the world's leading producer of air-to-air video and still photography with cameras specially developed by Lacy to fit into corporate jet chase planes.

Barmaid went beyond skimpy Undercover police at a Wheatbelt pub saw a skimpy barmaid appear completely naked, leading to the licensee to get a $3000 fine for her "lewd" and "immodest" behaviour. T h e l i q u o r enforcement division found the barmaid at the Bedford Arms in Brookton was not wearing a bra top and her nipples were covered only with nipple tassels or "pasties" when it visited in November last year. Several times she removed either one of the pasties to reveal her nipples. As the night progressed, she was seen completely naked. When uniformed local police revisited the premises in February, they saw another barmaid serving patrons while not wearing any clothing on her

upper body. Police told the Liquor Commission "she rapidly fled the bar area once she became aware of the police presence". CCTV showed the sole director of the company holding the liquor licence, Gregory William Marr, present earlier when the barmaid collected money placed in a glass jug. "This was identical to the technique observed in November

when touting patrons for extra money to undress beyond the decency standards," police said. The hotel is subject to an entertainment condition prohibiting the licensee, manager or staff from being immodestly dressed. This includes bare breasts and buttocks or using see-through material, nipple stickers or Gstrings. Police also saw Mr Marr serve two visibly drunk patrons with more alcohol. Mr Marr did not contest the November incident but said his instructions to the barmaids employed through an entertainment agency before the February visit were to "keep it clean, keep it legal". In a decision this week, the Liquor Commission fined the hotel $3000 and ordered Mr Marr to complete the full course in licensed premises management.

Man lost $12,000 while riding motorcycle A N e w J e r s e y commercial fisherman who saved nearly $12,000 in cash for an engagement ring lost it when it fluttered from his backpack while he was riding a motorcycle. Matthew Camp, 32, said the sad tale could have a happy ending. A highway cleanup crew on the Garden State Parkway has found $4,000 of the cash and now another person has stepped forward to say he found another $5,300 and wants to return it. Camp said he lost the money after cashing a $12,000 check earned during a good scallop run on his boat, the F.V. Nancy Elizabeth out of Cape May, New Jersey.


Camp stuffed the money into a backpack, which had a broken zipper, and planned to ask long-time girlfriend Tabitha Bohn to marry him. He rode his motorcycle to the dock and, while changing into work clothes, discovered the cash was missing, Bohn said. "It was heartbreaking," said Bohn, who with Camp has

two children and is raising two others from previous relationships. "He was finally going to break down and buy me a ring." Camp raced back up the parkway, where the crew that found $4,000 offered a description of a new model silver truck whose occupant also picked up some cash. The truck occupant, who wants to remain anonymous, recently contacted Camp after reading about the incident in the local newspaper. He agreed to turn over his found treasure to Camp. As for fishing? Camp was supposed to go out, but the boat's captain delayed the trip to give Camp time to get the cash back.

The ceremony is called Tumpek Wariga or Tumpek Pengatag will be held on Saturday September 28th, 2013. Tumpek Wariga or devoted to Sanghyang Sangkara, Lord of all food – plants when blessing ceremony is given to them for good crops and products, held at every plantation and farm throughout the island. Tumpek Wariga is celebrated every 210 days or 6 months of the Balinese calendar. It's a right time to beg the God to give His grace so the vegetation can provide a lot of crops. Tumpek Wariga is also called Tumpek Bubuh, because the offerings contain bubuh (porridge) such as bubuh s u m s u m (porridge made using refined flour). In committing the ceremony, the b u b u h i s smeared on the tree bark as a symbol of

fertilizer s (the proper f o o d f o r vegetation). T h e offering is dedicated to all plants that help human life, such as salak, coconuts, mangoes, d u r i a n , b a n a n a s , rambutan etc. Not just by presenting an offering, plants a r e a l s o decorated with clothes and special decoration made from coconut leaf. The Tumpak Wariga celebration is also a time for expressing human gratitude to plants. Plants are seen as human relatives, as they are also part of God's family. It is people's duty to protect plants; moreover Balinese believe that prosperity and comfort will come around whenever the vegetation is protected and conserved. So for that reasons, the Balinese have to make special offerings for plants.

For the state of South Carolina, the jackpot win means an additional $15 million in tax revenue, officials said. The lottery benefits education in the state, they said. The man stopped at a Murphy USA gasoline gasoline station in central South Carolina after his wife asked him to pick up the hot dog buns, but after finding they had none, he bought $20 of Powerball tickets instead, the officials said. His big win, the fourthlargest prize in the lottery's history, occurred on just the second time he had purchased tickets, the man told lottery officials. "This is a life changing event, there are a lot of zeros in this money," Paula Harper Bethea, executive director of the South Carolina Education Lottery, had said last week while the winner remained unknown. When he came forward, the man, who asked not be identified, told lottery officials that he was home alone when he discovered that he won.

station in Lexington, South Carolina, where the man bought the machine-generated winning ticket will be rewarded $50,000 for its role, lottery officials said. Powerball prizes have been getting larger, in part because the ticket price rose to $2 from $1 in January, and because California, the most populous U.S. state, joined in April. Powerball is played in 43 states, Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Chances of winning the big prize are 1 in 175 million, the lottery said. The largest Powerball jackpot was $590.5 million, won by a Florida woman in May. Ticket holders in New Jersey and Minnesota shared a $448 million jackpot in August. The amounts paid to the winners were substantially smaller because they chose cash over an annuity.

Dear Martha,

26 Sept - 2 Oct 2013 (355)

Sports Corner

“ Ask Martha”

My current boyfriend and I are happy; extremely happy, ridiculously happy BUT we have very different sex drives. While I'd like to have it just about every day, he isn't into it as much as me. He's reassured me that I'm beautiful, and I turn him on, but in the bedroom he just doesn't seem to get into it like me. Even though I'm young, I've been having sex for about seven years now and my previous boyfriend and I were EXTREMELY compatible (it was the only way we were compatible). His ex and him very rarely had sex and when they did, he wasn't very enthused. (His words, not mine). I love my boyfriend and can see a very long and good future ahead of us but I just want him to open up behind closed doors. Hoping it's not me. Dear Hoping it's not me,

@ Crusoe’s Island Bar & Restaurant

I'm sure you want lots of hot steamy sex. But mostly, you want him to want you. You think because he doesn't or because he's just as happy reading a book, it means there's something wrong with you dear. Truth be told, there might be. There may be something so scary and sexually repugnant about you he just can't face sex. Sound likely? No, didn't think so. So my guess is it's not he's not into you but he's just not that into sex… and you're taking the whole thing personally. Of course you wouldn't be the first. Differing sex drives can be a massive problem in a relationship. It can be the cause of very serious and long-lasting resentment. When one partner wants it a lot and the other not very much at all, it creates an imbalance. The one who wants it always feels they are begging for their needs to be met and the one who doesn't, always feels guilty they are withholding. For you the biggest issue seems to be how to rationalise his lack of interest in sex. One of the special things about being in a relationship is feeling your partner wants you, in all possibly ways. When you start to feel they don't, you start to feel neglected and rejected. Eventually some people look elsewhere for someone who can make them feel special You say, “hoping it is not me”, because understandably you gauge your boyfriend's level of sexual interest in you as a sign of his interest overall. In the end you may just need to accept this is never going to be like the sex you had with your old partner but in some other ways it might be better. Less of it sure, but more loving and more emotional. Martha

The Knights led 18-4 early in the second term and had to withstand a spirited Storm fight-back, with the hosts scoring two unanswered tries through Sisa Waga and Jesse Bromwich. T h e visitors held on to a two-point lead for 13 minutes before booking a preliminary final berth against Sydney Roosters next Saturday. The win extends Danny Buderus' career by at least one more week and the veteran Knights hooker could not have been be happier with the victory over the Storm. "It's exciting, I just don't know what's coming up around the corner," Buderus said. "You go into a game thinking it's your last but your also having a hell of a ride with a great bunch of guys, who are having a dig for each other." The Knights scraped into the top eight in seventh place but under seven-time premiership coach Wayne Bennett they look worthy contenders. They repeatedly upset the

Storm's rhythm with their speed and ferocity forcing uncharacteristic errors. The first half was played with State of Origin-like intensity, with Newcastle coming out on top 12-4.

The Test custodian tried to catch a routine Jarrod Mullen bomb above his head AFL-style, but spilt it with Matt Hilder scooping it up to dive across the line just two minutes into the term. The Storm hit back with a try to Waqa after Kenny Bromwich batted a long ball out to the winger on the last tackle but the Knights kept a firm hold on the match. Waqa could not finish the match after suffering a knee injury late in the half. The Knights had two tries disallowed midway through the second by the video referee, the momentum all their way until the Storm fight-back. The home side were not helped losing Jordan McLean with a broken jaw late in the first half after a head clash with Alex McKinnon. Buderus admits he and his team-mates are riding a wave of momentum, while committed to playing for their loyal supporters. "We've got a whole region to play for," he said.

Makeover Miracles Libra

– March 21 to April 20 It's Equinox week [when day and night are equal] plus the Sun shifts into the sign of Libra. So it's time to bring more harmony into your busy world. Try to make your professional/personal life more balanced plus – in relationships – strive to get the ratio right between giving and taking. On the weekend, calm cooperation will get you a lot further than feisty fireworks!


– September 24 to October 23 The Sun shifts into your sign [until October 23] so it's time to sparkle and shine. Work worries will [temporarily] fly out the window, as Venus and Jupiter bless employment opportunities and workplace relations. Utilize your substantial Libran charms to get where you want to go. Others are taking notice of what you're doing so make sure you're putting on a good show.


– May 22 to June 21 Twins love to chat but can you walk your talk? This week's stars encourage you to pluck creative ideas from the thought plane, and then put them into practice in the real world. Be inspired by Bruce Springsteen [born on Sep 23] “Talk about a dream, then try to make it real.” Wednesday and Thursday are your best days as you communicate, network and multi-task to the max.

– October 24 to November 22 Saturn is sending obstacles your way [and challenging your Scorpio sanity] but hang in there! As birthday great F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote “Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat.” Trying to coerce or control others could lead to confrontation on Friday, so step back and reassess the situation. Use your powerful Pluto energy to influence people in positive ways. – November 23 to December 21 Your positive attitude and sunny smile make you extra popular this week. So it's a super time to socialize, network, entertain or call in an old favor. Be inspired by Sagittarians like Bruce Lee, Walt Disney and Tina Turner, who have influenced others via their talent, energy, enthusiasm and powerful personalities. The weekend is fabulous for catching up with family and friends.


Capricorn – December 22 to January 20

– April 21 to May 21 Your greatest asset is your Taurean tenacity, so use it to your advantage. But remember there's a fine line between being persistent and just being plain stubborn! Friday's Venus/Jupiter trine is fortuitous for love, work, travel, finances and friendships. If you have to make an important decision, gather as much relevant information as possible. Knowledge is power.


– June 22 to July 23 Crabs can be slow-moving and over-cautious but Jupiter gives you a fantastic energy boost on Friday, so don't waste it. Make time to do the things you love – like cooking, gardening, craftwork, DIY projects or having a relaxing massage. On Saturday, try approaching an old problem in an innovative new way. Confidence is the key to a successful week.




Use the power of your clever Capricorn mind to work smarter, rather than harder. But don't believe everything a wellmeaning neighbor or relative tells you – they may be way off the mark. And is it time to give a fair-weather friend the flick? It's important to surround yourself with people who boost your confidence; promote your talents; and encourage your dreams.

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19

– July 24 to August 23 Lions love to be waited on and pampered [manual labor and daily chores definitely aren't your favorite things]. But this week, if you're not pulling your weight at home, then family members [or housemates] will be quick to point out your shortcomings. Perhaps it's time to re-negotiate the domestic roster, as you get your hands dirty and some sweat on your brow?

Many Aquarians will receive a welcome professional boost via a promotion, bonus or new job … but you don't get it for nothing. The pay-off is longer hours; more stressful working conditions or extra responsibilities. If you're not in paid employment, you may be approached to do some volunteer work. Make sure it's something you're really passionate about.


Pisces – February 20 to March 20

– August 24 to September 23 The power of the group is on your side as you chat and collaborate; mix and mingle. But avoid being uncharacteristically hasty – if you take short-cuts, then you'll just end up having to do everything twice. Thursday and Friday favor communication, commerce, sales, education, research and all forms of social media. With your finger on the pulse, you'll be unstoppable!

Dynamic Mars is shining a bright spotlight on your daily routine. Are you spending too many hours sitting on your Piscean posterior? Perhaps you could do some research on stand-up desks, or slot more exercise into your schedule? It's a wonderful weekend to spend some quality time with a child or teenager … but a financial matter may head off in an unexpected direction. Jl. Bene

Sebastian Vettel booed after Singapore victory Sebastian Vettel took a huge step towards his fourth straight world title Monday (AEST) with a consummate victory in Singapore that left his rivals fighting for scraps but again prompted boos from the crowd. The German, starting from pole, fought off Nico Rosberg on the first bend and despite a safety car intervention, he was untouchable as he took his third win in a row and a hat-trick of wins in Singapore. Ferrari's Fernando Alonso finished second to keep up the title pressure on Vettel, who now leads the championship by 60 points from the Spaniard with six races remaining. Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen braved back pain to finish third but there was disaster for Mark Webber, whose late charge ended in a blown engine and a ride back to the pits on the wing of Alonso's Ferrari. Paul Di Resta ploughed his Force India into a wall but crucially, there was no safety car and in the aftermath Webber slipped past Perez and then Button to move into fourth. It was building to a titanic finish until smoke started pouring from Webber's engine and he eventually abandoned his Red Bull to hitch a ride with Alonso - the stunt earning both drivers a formal reprimand. Mercedes pair Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton claimed fourth and fifth, Ferrari's Felipe Massa was sixth and McLaren drivers Jenson Button and Sergio Perez occupied seventh and eighth. But yet again the race belonged to Vettel, who was literally streets ahead of his rivals on the spot-lit Marina Bay circuit through the highways of downtown Singapore. However, some sections of


the crowd were not impressed with Vettel. Already heckled in Belgium and Italy, the German champion faced an eruption of boos and whistles after he mounted the winner's podium. "They're on a tour. They go round with a bus," he shrugged. The world champion added: "The start was quite hairy. Nico had a better start and I didn't get going. But unfortunately he went a little too deep and I could get it back. "With the safety car it was difficult but as soon as the safety car came off we had very strong pace with the car. It was just a pleasure to drive around this crazy race." The peerless 26-year-old

has now won four of the past five grands prix and is a racing certainty to become the sport's youngest fourtime world champion, joining Michael Schumacher and Juan Manuel Fangio as only the third man to win four in a row. From the start, Rosberg darted past Vettel going into the first turn but his speed carried him wide at the second corner and the Red Bull man was able to nip back in front. Behind them, Alonso pulled off a masterful move as he used the outside of the track to leap from seventh on the grid to third in the opening seconds. But as the cars started to

string out, it was all about Vettel as he hared off in front in customary fashion, establishing a seven-second lead by lap seven. As the cars behind him garaged for medium tyres, Vettel strung out his lead to 36 seconds and he was able to pit on lap 17 and still maintain an eight-second lead over Rosberg. Di Resta nipped in behind Rosberg for third place during the pits shake-up, frustrating Alonso, who was unable to pass and challenge for second. By lap 25 of the 61, Vettel was nearly 11 seconds ahead when Australian Daniel Ricciardo, heading to Red Bull next year, ploughed into the barriers at turn 18 and totalled his Toro Rosso. The safety car roared out, erasing Vettel's lead, but when it disappeared five laps later, it was deja vu as the German shot out to a 3.2second lead on the first trip round the circuit. Vettel showed sheer class again as he scorched to the race's fastest lap and then powered out to a 12-second lead by lap 35. Vettel had stretched his lead to more than 20 seconds by circuit number 39, before coming in for his second and final tyre-change a few laps later. He emerged comfortably ahead of Alonso and with 10 laps to go, the lead was pushed to more than 10 seconds as Vettel zeroed in on his seventh win of the season. The real battles were in his rear-view mirror, as Webber squeezed up inside Nico Hulkenberg to take sixth and Raikkonen pulled off a peach of a move outside Button for third. Ve t t e l w a s a l r e a d y celebrating - more than some of the spectators - as he heads towards another world title and a place among the sport's greatest names.

Temporary takeover of toilet paper factory VA Venezuelan state agency ordered the temporary takeover of a factory that produces toilet paper in what it called an effort to ensure consistent supplies after embarrassing shortages earlier this year. Critics of President Nicolas Maduro say the nagging shortages of products ranging from bathroom tissue to milk are a sign his socialist government's rigid price and currency controls are failing. They have also used the situation to poke fun at his administration on social media networks. A national agency called Sundecop, which enforces price controls, said in a statement it would occupy one of the factories

belonging to paper producer Manpa for 15 days, adding that National Guard troops would "safeguard" the facility. "The action in the producer of toilet paper, sanitary napkins and disposable diapers responds to the state's

supply of basic goods for the people," Sundecop said, adding it had observed "the violation of the right" to access such products. Calls to the Manpa factory went unanswered. G o v e r n m e n t supporters laud efforts by Maduro, the successor to late socialist leader Hugo Chavez, for maintaining tough regulations of private businesses. T h e y b l a m e unscrupulous merchants for hoarding products to make quick profits, and celebrate the socialist government's legacy of social assistance programs. Critics say the shortages of consumer goods are caused by businesses' inability to import raw materials and machinery because of a shortage of hard currency under the exchange controls.

Professor Milton Wainwright, from the University of Sheffield's department of molecular biology and biotechnology, has revealed that a specially designed balloon used to monitor the Perseid meteor shower has returned with samples of small organisms. The Perseid meteor shower is a cloud comprising particles ejected by the comet Swift-Tuttle as it travels on its 133year orbit.

said: "In the absence of a mechanism by which large particles like these can be transported to the stratosphere we can only conclude that the biological entities originated from space. " O u r conclusion then is that life is continually arriving to Earth from space, life is not restricted to this planet and it almost certainly did not originate here." He said "stringent precautions" had been taken against contamination. There are plans to launch another balloon to coincide with a meteor shower associated with Haley's comment.

statement on Monday. "We respect that Manly is heading into a preliminary final this week and look forward to welcoming George to the club after the grand final." The club said it would make further comment on Rose's signing after the decider.



Rose - who is off contract at season's end - had not been offered an extension by the Sea Eagles, who face South Sydney in a preliminary final on Friday night. The 2011 premiershipwinning front rower will link up with the Storm after this year's grand final on October 6. "We are really delighted George has signed with the club, he will add great depth to our forward pack," Storm director of football Frank Ponissi said in a

Rose started his career with Sydney Roosters in 2002, playing just six games before switching to Manly three years later. He overcame a badly broken leg that sidelined him for 18 months in 2007 to become the club's player of the year in 2009. The 30-year-old has since played 124 games for the Sea Eagles. His signing comes on the back of the Storm's shock 18-16 loss to Newcastle on Saturday, knocking the defending champions out of the 2013 finals race.


Manly prop George Rose will head to Melbourne next season after signing a oneyear deal with the club.

Lyon admitted he feared the worst when the injury occurred, his leg caught under the weight of a pair of defenders. "I thought it was bad, I thought I'd broken my leg at the start," Lyon said. "I was probably carrying on a bit out there but it was good news and it settled down after a little while." Lyon is not the only


Lyon looked in agony as he reeled out of a tackle in Friday night's semi-final win over Cronulla, the Sea Eagles centre clutching and then limping heavily on his left leg before seeing out the contest. With his leg packed in ice after the game he appeared in serious doubt to face the Rabbitohs, but the skipper said he would be there at the Olympic stadium insisting the injured leg would not prevent him from training. "They (the scans) were fine, just had a bit of a bang on it and there was a bit of bruising but it's a good result and there'll be no doubt this week," Lyon said at the Sea Eagles recovery session at North Narrabeen beach on Monday. "I'll be out there playing, so

concern for the Sea Eagles, and while he admitted Brett Stewart was no certainly to return from a hamstring strain, the veteran centre was confident Anthony Watmough (knee) would be fit to play. Stewart has not played since round 25, and was touch and go before being ruled out at the last minute against the Sharks. The Sea Eagles have lacked some fluency in their attack without their star full-back. "Brett's probably the biggest (injury concern) there," Lyon said. "... he's obviously got to get through a few fitness tests and a few team sessions. "Hopefully he's right, he's a big part of our team and he adds another dimension. “Even though Peta Hiku's done a great job (at full-back), Brett's been around for a while and he's very valuable for us."

Having initially feared he had broken his leg, Manly captain Jamie Lyon declared himself a certain starter for Friday's NRL preliminary final against South Sydney.

Department bugged, with ones that crawls New York City's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has a problem and it sounds more like one for which it might issue a citation than find in its own backyard. The department said that its new $316 million headquarters in the borough of Queens has been infested with bed bugs. Inspectors have "found a group of bed bugs living in one area of one floor of our department's Long Island City building," the Health Department said in a statement. "We have already taken steps to address the problem, including conducting additional


inspections, vacuuming, steam-cleaning and applying small amounts of pesticide." Staff at the Health Department were "freaked out" after several weeks of bed bug sightings. The vampiric insects are difficult to eradicate, and areas where they are spotted require

extensive and expensive fumigation to completely get rid of them. "Employees were given copies of the department's own bed bug information pamphlet and told to declutter their desks and put their belongings in plastic bags," Bed bugs were common throughout most of the 20th century, but were believed to have been all but eradicated from the United States by 1995. But they have made a dramatic resurgence. More than 13,000 bedbug complaints were registered with the city in fiscal year 2011, according to a spokesman for the Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

Town finds 850 snakes in man's home

Authorities in the New York town of Shirley found 850 snakes, including two illegal 6-foot-long (2-meter) Burmese pythons, in the home and garage of an animal control officer suspected of dealing in the

reptiles, local media reported. Shirley and Suffolk County officers raided the home, Newsday of Long Island reported, citing town officials and publishing a photo of officers holding the

pythons. Suffolk County police referred all queries to the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), whose officers were not immediately available for comment. The suspect, an animal control officer in the neighbouring town of Brookhaven, was cooperating with investigators and faces multiple charges of owning the pythons and operating a business without a permit, Newsday said. The pythons will be sent t o a n a n i m a l s a n c t u a r y, Newsday said, citing Roy Gross of the Suffolk County SPCA. What would happen to the other snakes remained unknown.

AFL Grand final: Hawthorn's Brad and Fremantle's Stephen Hill first brothers in century to face off Stephen Hill first


Hawthorn speedster Brad Hill is meant to be the cheeky one of the family, but it is his brother Stephen who has started the mind games leading into Saturday's AFL grand final at the MCG. Stephen and Brad will become the first brothers to face off against each other in a VFL/AFL grand final since Essendon's Alan and South Melbourne's Vic Belcher squared off in the 1912 decider. One of the most memorable moments of last year's grand final came when Sydney flyer Lewis Jetta outsprinted Hawthorn speedster Cyril Rioli in a foot race. Stephen cheekily suggests he will do the same to Brad this year. "If I've got a chance I'll try to burn him off. I think I've got him covered," Stephen said with a laugh. "Mum's really proud and happy and really looking forward to this week. "I think she might have a bit of Hawthorn and Freo colours on. "She'll be supporting both of us. I'm looking forward to it." Stephen, 23, has established himself as a key cog in Fremantle's midfield over the past five years, with his dashing pace, poise around goal and pin-point kicking making him a star of the competition. Brad, who was drafted by Hawthorn with pick number 33 in the 2011 national draft, has enjoyed a breakout season in which he's played 23 games and kicked 17 goals. The 20-year-old West Australian is not afraid to give a bit of lip on the field either. In contrast, Stephen is one of the shyest players at Fremantle, and normally prefers to let his actions do the talking. "He is a bit more cheeky and outgoing. He loves to get into it a little bit," Stephen said of his younger brother. "It wouldn't surprise me if he has a few words to say (to me on Saturday). "I miss him a little bit. But he's really enjoying it over there in Melbourne and it's good seeing him play some good footy. "He's improved a lot over the last couple of years. He's worked on his football really hard and he's doing really well."

"Brad's been exceptional," Lyon told the Seven Network. "Some people didn't rate him in the draft but he's come in and taken his opportunity and really helped their run. "Stephen for us is a really important player. "But there will be the Yin and the Yang, won't there. There'll be one devastation and one ultimate joy for that family."

Wallabies clash with South Africa first Test in gruelling overseas tour The Wallabies are embarking on one of the most gruelling stretches of overseas fixtures in their history, after leaving Australia on Monday for matches in South Africa, Argentina and New Zealand before the spring tour to Europe. Regular team members face the prospect of playing eight consecutive offshore Tests in the space of 10 weekends starting against South Africa in Cape Town next Sunday (AEST). The Wallabies, who have a 2-5 win-loss record this year, play their last two Rugby Championship matches against the Springboks and Pumas and have one weekend off before a Bledisloe Cup game in Dunedin. One free weekend is followed by Tests on five straight Saturdays on a spring tour schedule which includes matches against all the United Kingdom nations plus Italy. By the time of their final game against Wales on November 30, Australia will have slogged through 12 Tests in 15 weekends and that does not include the three intense battles with the

British and Irish Lions at the start of its international campaign. No wonder the likes of recent stand-in skipper Ben Mowen barely has time to reflect on his rapid rise through the ranks over the past three months. The Brumbies captain and back-rower did not make his senior international debut until late June, but has started all of Australia's past seven Tests, leading the team in its last match against Argentina. "To be honest I try not to reflect at this stage, because I'd just like to hammer out the year and then I'm sure when it comes to Christmas time I'll get time to sit down and reflect," Mowen said before the Wallabies left for South Africa.

"Just the way that the season is laid out, at the moment, you can have recharges in between, but you are so quickly refocusing on the next game, that you can't really afford to be looking back too much. "You've got to be looking forward to the next contest and keep yourself moving. "But it's been a great ride for myself this year obviously. A lot of firsts for me and it's been a very rewarding year." Mowen felt the matches in South Africa and Argentina would allow Australia the chance to continue developing combinations under new coach Ewen McKenzie. "The more time this group has had together the better our performances have been on the training paddock and on the field," Mowen said. "I think this is going to be a really important period. “The prospect of possibly getting two really huge wins on the road against two sides that play extremely well at home, I think, is an exciting challenge for the group."

Knights gear up for Roosters clash Scans have cleared Newcastle K n i g h t s h a l f b a c k Ty r o n e Roberts of a serious knee injury and he is expected to play in the preliminary final against the Sydney Roosters. Roberts hyper-extended his knee in the weekend's win over Melbourne. Winger James McManus is hopeful of returning from an ankle injury after missing the game against the Storm. Knights utility Matt Hilder says the team will need to step it up a gear against the Roosters. "They're a real quality side they've been consistent all year," he said. "You just have to look at their team on paper and you can just see how good of a side they area.


"Playing in Sydney at their home ground pretty much, so we're going to have to go up a gear I reckon." Knights prop David Fa'alogo says his team has the forwards to match it with the Roosters. Coach Wayne Bennett will name his side this afternoon for Saturday's preliminary final with the minor premiers. The last time the two teams

met Sonny Bill Williams put a shoulder charge on Knights forward Willie Mason and Fa'alogo says he is expecting another physical challenge. "It's a challenge that we love to come up against every week," he said. "Big forwards, we've got big forwards and we're looking to match them in that area and do well. "It's a team effort and each player is going out there to do their job. "We're quietly confident; we have expectation, we go in and put in the hard work and that's what it takes. “If we come away with the victory then it comes down to backing each other up."
