Pokies backflip Local RSL welcomes government s decision

etersham RSL Club has welcomed the Federal Government’s backfl ip on the proposed poker machine reform, after the Prime Minister announced new measures last weekend. A one-year trial of mandatory precommitment on poker machines in the ACT will now take place, instead of forcing all clubs to adhere. “Petersham RSL was encouraged by the Federal Government’s announcement that it is taking a range of other actions to support problem gamblers and their families,” said Club Chief Executive, Danny Fitzgerald. Mr Fitzgerald said the club, which supports voluntary precommitment, was interested in looking at the other new initiatives, “including banning the promotion of live odds during sports coverage… and extending pre-commitment to online betting services”. Ms Gillard backed down from her original deal with Independent MP, Andrew Wilkie, to introduce mandatory pre-commitment across all clubs by the end of 2014, prompting Mr Wilkie to withdraw his support for the government. Anthony Ball, from Clubs Australia, welcomed the move to

machines. You haven’t bought a new poker machine in six years and you’re not likely to for another 10,” he said.

spending on their children instead, and it’s money that in many instances they can’t aff ord to lose. Much of the reason there is such opposition to the reforms is because of a staggering campaign of misinformation. Contrary to some claims, no one is trying to stop people from gambling. Instead the idea is that people decide before they begin gambling how much money they are willing to forfeit. How anyone can argue

that is a bad idea is truly staggering. I agree that these days governments seem to be making so many rules you can barely leave your house without receiving a suspended jail term. I was debating this issue with a friend the other day, and they said “you can’t legislate against stupidity”. But we do need to legislate to protect the most vulnerable. I’m not saying ban gambling, but certainly limit the damage that can be done to society.

f ever there was a marriage made in heaven, it’s a jointly-produced British and Australian romantic comedy about a wedding gone wrong. A Few Best Men is a product of this union, the brainchild of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert director Stephan Elliot and the writer of Death at a Funeral. Th e fi lm is a rollicking comedy about a wedding that hurtles into havoc when the groom’s incompetent ‘best men’ arrive. Englishman David (Xavier Samuel) announces his engagement to Aussie girl, Mia (Laura Brent). Following this, his three good mates (Kris Marshall, Kevin Bishop and Tim Draxl) set themselves a mission to attend his wedding in Sydney. Despite good intentions, the inept threesome end up causing a chaotic, culture-clashing chain-reaction of disasters. The picturesque Blue Mountains scrubs up beautifully as the setting for much of the fi lm’s action, while Australian audiences will enjoy Olivia Newtown-John as we’ve never seen her before.

Hear the Dragon roar

Chinese New Year celebrations will brighten up Marrickville Road on Saturday Lunar New Year Celebrations have started right throughout Sydney to celebrate the Year of the Dragon. Marrickville is set to host its own celebrations this weekend to bring luck and prosperity to all. BY LOUISE BOURKE

L

unar New Year celebrations have kicked off all over Sydney to welcome the Year of the Dragon. The Dragon is one of the most powerful and lucky signs in the Chinese zodiac, with many believing there is a balance between heaven and earth in the lives of people born in this year. The city will celebrate with dancing, acrobatics and fi reworks displays, as well as the traditional Dragon Boat race in Cockle Bay in early February. Marrickville will host its own Lunar New Year celebrations on Saturday, January 28 from 11am at the Alex Trevallion Plaza, with traditional singers, dancers and musicians. Following the performances, Lion Dancers will wend their way around the shops on Marrickville Road to bring luck and prosperity to businesses for the year ahead. As well as participating in New Year celebrations, there are many traditions everyone can become involved in, including cleaning your house to sweep out the bad luck from the previous year and wearing red, which scares away evil spirits.

Marrickville will host its Chinese New Year celebrations this Saturday.

A founding member of the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, Ms G er ma nos-Kout sou nad is was recognised for her outstanding work over many years in the local community. The group of local ‘champions’ were selected as the new ‘People of Australia Ambassadors’ following hundreds of nominations from the public. “The selection of a local speaks to the strength of our community and our capacity as a nation to welcome people and make them feel part of our community,” said Federal Member for Grayndler, Anthony Albanese. “Vivi has been an outstanding advocate for her community and social justice for many years.” The Ambassador

P O LI CE SNAP SH OT Double trouble: Alcoholfuelled assaults

Do you snore? You may be able to help out a groundbreaking study

Do you snore? Hospital hunts for global study participants BY LOUISE BOURKE

I

f you’re a snorer who’s tired of being kicked out of the bed, there’s one place that will happily offer you a place to sleep. RPA hospital is recruiting for people who snore to be part of a global study investigating the connection between sleep apnoea, blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes.

Professor Craig Anderson, RPA Head, Department of Neurology, is calling on more snorers to volunteer so the study can reach its target of 5,000 patients. “The more information we gather, the closer we are to better understanding the causes of heart attacks and strokes,” Professor Anderson said. “Th is may well lead to the development of new medical approaches to the prevention of

cardiovascular disease.” Trial participant Terry Joseph, 62, has been taking part in the study for the past 12 months. Mr Joseph, who suff ers from heart disease and had his fi rst heart attack at 38, believes the study is doing wonders for his health. Participants must be aged between 45 and 75 and have previous heart conditions, heart attacks or bypass surgery. For more information phone 9515 3251.

Newtown Police arrested three people last weekend in relation to two separate alcohol-related assaults. In one incident, which occurred in the early hours of Sunday morning, police intervened in an assault that was occurring on King Street. Police have alleged that a 26-year-old male assaulted police and spat at them. The o fficers chased two males through nearby streets before they were both arrested and taken to Newtown Police Station. The 26-year-old male was charged with assaulting police and resisting arrest. A 23-year-old male was charged with behaving in an offensive manner in a public place. They were both granted bail to appear at Newtown Local Court on February 14. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Mid-range: Male charged with drink driving

A 34-year-old driver from Dulwich Hill was charged for mid-range drink driving last Friday, January 20. Marrickville Police stopped the driver on New Canterbury Road in Dulwich Hill for a random breath test.

The male returned a positive roadside reading and was taken to Newtown Police Station for a breath analysis. The male returned a reading of 0.081 of alcohol and was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for mid-range drink driving. The man had his licence suspended and will appear at Newtown Local Court later this month. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Untagged: Woman charged with theft

A 31-year-old female from Orange was arrested and charged for shoplifting and malicious damage last week. At about 2pm last Th ursday, January 19, Marrickville Police arrested the woman after a shop employee saw her cut off the security tags of some clothing items and start to try them on. It is alleged the woman went into the change rooms to put on the items of clothing before she walked out of the shop. Marrickville police managed to locate the woman across the road where she was still wearing the alleged stolen items. She was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for stealing from a retail store and two counts of malicious damage. She will appear at Newtown Local Court on February, 14.

Ms Kaur, who scored the top mark with her multi-function wedding dress, received an early university offer at the start of January after a letter of recommendation from her principal. “Initially I had been given a principal’s recommendation, one of only two from my school,” Ms Kaur said. “While it’s no guarantee to get into a course, the principal’s recommendation really helped.” She will begin a combined Bachelor of Communications (Journalism)/International Studies degree at the University of Technology, Sydney in late February, relishing the prospect of writing as well as learning a language.

Are we racist? Teo's Australia Day address creates a stir BY LOUISE BOURKE

W

orld-renowned brain surgeon Dr Charles Teo has highlighted the issue of racism in our society and called for a greater acceptance of immigrants in his Australia Day address. Dr Teo described his own experiences growing up in Picnic Point in Sydney’s south west, where “racism was rife”, and said that while racism is not as overt as it once was, it remains part of life in Australia. “It still disturbs me when I hear some of our politicians reassuring overseas governments that it doesn’t exist at all,” he said. “It is incorrect and naive to say that there is no anti-Arab or no anti-Indian sentiment, just ask someone of Middle Eastern or Indian appearance.” Dr Teo, who spent 10 years working in the United States of America, still believes Australia is the “greatest nation in the world” and a product of our multicultural society. “I want all Australians to see how immigrants have contributed to our nation and to appreciate that a rich and prosperous country such as ours has a moral and global responsibility to share our resources,” he said. Dr Teo also called for people who come to live in Australia to “embrace the Australian way of life.”

BUSINESS Business Finance Reduce the gap Subheading

Business borrowers need to demand that our banks reduce the yawning gap between business loan rates and home loan rates. New data from the Reserve Bank shows that ultra-pricey lending to businesses has surged over the last 18 months. The latest figures show more than $55 billion was on loan to SMEs at variable rates of nine per cent or more. While that seems expensive, the scary number is this – the amount of money being lent to SME’s at credit card-like interest rates (in excess of 15 per cent) has soared by nearly 40 per cent to $2.3 billion. If you’re a small business owner looking for finance, here’s a simple guide on how to get a better deal on fi nance products. First, before you think about switching lenders, see what the absolute rate and fees are compared to others. A simple way to do this is to look to the ‘comparison rate’. Second, look at and talk to some alternatives. The cash costs of switching include things like application fees and valuation fees. Of course there are noncash costs – the time it takes to look for, negotiate and complete a loan application isn’t trivial. Th ird, talk to your lender about your options – you may be surprised at how willing they are to negotiate.

Discretion in your romantic life is going to be of uppermost importance over the next few weeks as Venus enters your house of secrets and psychology. You’ll find that it’ll be wise to pull a veil over the more intimate side of your nature, and you’ll be less inclined to confide your deepest secrets even to your closest friends. Quiet interludes with the one you love will be far more attractive than painting the town red.

The planets are urging you to push ahead with new projects as they move through your solar house of adventure. You’re in a self-confident mood and feel able to tackle anything the world throws at you. There’s a lure of the exotic as well, as far-off places exert a powerful attraction. Think again about widening your personal horizons by reading literature, travelling or by taking up an educational course.

Venus moves into your solar house of ambitions and prominence and ensures that the use of charm and diplomacy will help to solve any professional problems. You can hardly fail to win with such charisma on your side. A woman may be instrumental in helping you solve a money or business problem of some kind. This woman’s sound, common-sense will help you to see things much more clearly.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 27 2012

July 23 to August 23

Venus enters the area of your chart that is connected with love and sex. Oddly enough, this aspect can bring the end of a difficult relationship, or just as easily begin a wonderful new romance. If you have been dating but haven’t gotten around to mating, this could be the start of something wonderful. Your emotional life over the next few weeks should be something to be remember, that’s for sure!

virgo

August 24 to September 23

It will be very easy to deal with other people over the next few weeks because they will be in a mood to cooperate with your schemes and dreams. You can expect help from someone who is in a powerful position and your own status will increase in some kind of rather subtle manner, too. If things have been difficult in a partnership or with a loved one, then this is your chance to put everything back into order.

Venus In Pisces Sextiles Jupiter; January 15th - February 9th

Francis A Bevan libra

September 24 to Oct 23

Something important is happening at work. You may be given a more responsible job with an increase in salary or status to go with it. You could be in a position to hire some help now and, if so, you will find just the right person for the job. Any changes that take place in relation to work, chores or even housework will be for the better. Also your health is likely to improve and it’s a good time to visit a doctor.

scorpio

October 24 to Nov 22

Your love life looks up when a charming and flirtatious mood takes hold. You’ll be extremely seductive and will win admiration with ease. Your silver tongue enables you to express pent-up feelings. Your heart is filled with compassion for others and perhaps you will be drawn to raise money for a good cause. However, you must guard against daydreams as they will interfere with your everyday routines and duties.

sagittarius

Nov 23 to Dec 21

You are likely to be surprised by the antics of various family members and your mother, sister or grandparents are the most likely source of all the fun. You may hear some really unexpected news about these relatives and they could suddenly decide to descend upon you to give you their glad tidings. If for some reason you’ve been dissatisfied with your home then this is an ideal time to make some changes.

capricorn

Dec 22 to January 20

aquarius

January 21 to Feb 19

This is an excellent time in which to get to know your neighbours and local neighbourhood better, so make time for gossip as you wander around doing your day to day duties. If you’ve got any favours to ask then Venus ensures that the use of charm and eloquence will easily win others over. A little flirtation combined with a smile ensures that you achieve your desires. It’s a good time to have a computer fixed.

Your financial state should experience a welcome boost for a few weeks as Venus, one of the planetary indicators of wealth, moves into your solar house of possessions and economic security. You feel that you deserve a lifestyle full of luxury and that’ll be reflected in the good taste you express when making purchases for your home. Your sense of selfworth and inner confidence is also boosted.

pisces

February 20 to March 20

The luxury loving planet Venus is suggesting that this is a great time to spoil yourself and to also enjoy yourself. So treat yourself to something nice and new for you alone. A new outfit would be a good idea, or a few nice smelling toiletries. The world of romance will be extremely attractive as fantasies take over your life. Many admiring glances will come your way as you are simply radiant and glowing.

Staying Healthy

Taking our health for granted

Susan Garrad

Coping with stress, the easy way Q. I seem to be always stressed, with never enough time to get everything done. What’s your advice for coping with a busy life? Learning how to manage stress is one of the most important things you can do for your health and wellbeing. Here are my top tips to help you reduce stress: • Get regular exercise, even if it’s just a short walk in the park or around the block. Exercise helps the body process stress related hormones. • Spending time in nature is a great way to revitalise and reduce stress. Take a walk through a local park or make your garden into an oasis. • Drink fi ltered water and nourish your body with healthy food: being dehydrated can trigger the fl ight or fi ght response because your body thinks its in survival mode. • Be mindful of the breath: breathing from the belly can turn on the relaxation

response, which is the antidote to the stress response. Find a meditation class in your local area to help get into a regular routine. • Everyone is diff erent so it is important to understand how your body reacts to stress. Do you feel a tightening in your shoulders or are you prone to headaches or tummy upsets? Just notice what happens when you are stressed. • Pay attention to your thinking. We can stress ourselves out by worrying about things that we can’t do anything about, or which have already happened. • Spend a few minutes writing a list of your 10 most favourite things to do and schedule some into your week. • Love is a natural stress reliever.

Keeping Fit David Stein Sometimes we all take our health and fi tness for granted, so I have a story for you... I have a friend who has a pretty serious addiction and their health has suff ered. You’ve probably heard the story: using a little bit occasionally turns into a little bit more, and before long it’s pretty much all they do. He’s not interested in coming out for a ride or game anymore, and when we do talk you can guess what it’s about. The other day we were at a party and I noticed he was missing for a while, I had a sinking feeling and went to look for him. Sure enough I found him in a room with two other people, all deathly quiet just sitting with that dull glazed look. How do you explain to someone what they’re missing in that state? Even if he could break out of his self-imposed habit and go for a run with his kids, physically he would be lethargic and unable to keep up. But also mentally he has wasted away. Th e bonds with his wife, kids or friends is diminished. All these are linked to many forms of depression and sickness. A

couple days ago he approached me for some help, because now his kids have also started using. We have put a couple things in place. One of the main things was a week clean. You never realise how dependent someone is until they have to go without. ‘I could if I want to, but I just don’t want to right now’ is every addict’s favourite line. I wonder if any readers know someone who would behave like

this? What advice would you give him? Maybe there are people reading who would like the same challenge. I’m guessing there is plenty of shaking heads saying ‘I’m not addicted to anything’. Well I’ll tell you the state altering, mind numbing drug of choice he was abusing. Television. Could you turn it off for a week? Or do you just not want to?

rtist Monique Jansen works within the field of geometric abstraction, and her latest exhibition at Marrickville’s Factory 49 looks at the relationship between geometric abstraction and labour. Ms Jansen engages with the concept of abstraction by looking at obsessive endeavour, repetition and accumulation, labour, modesty of materials, frugality and restraint, while using geometric line as an independent pictorial element. The works themselves are a series of hand drawn moiré patterns in pencil on paper, using folded A4, A3 and A2 generic paper sizes to determine the shape of the geometric form. In her images, the visual sensation hovers between pristine sharpness and soft oblivion. You’ll see the images as hard and soft, crisp and dissolving, certain and uncertain, anxious and calm, formal and casual and effortless yet labour-
