Stress and panic but is it all really worth it for our kids? I’ve got to admi t, I didn ’t do all tha t well in m y Higher S chool Certific ate. Partly bec ause m y head was stuck in Big League rather than a te xt book, but also bec ause a t 18- years- old I hadn ’t figured out what I wanted to do with my life. I was a chubby, pimple-faced kid who talked to myself a fair bi t – I had plen ty more to be concerned about than wha t UAI I was g oing to end up w ith. (Not much has chan ged b y the wa y – just the pimple-faced bit.) Right no w, studen ts ac ross the loc al area are sitting their HSC. For some, the belief is tha t the result means the world; that a single number defines who they are. That’s just plain wrong but I’ll get back to that in a moment. For others, it is simply the last bi t of schooling they have to do before they c an disappear in to the real world. The HSC needs to c ater for the most dedic ated student in the school and for the least dedicated. In short, it has to be everything to everyone. And while for some i t w ill indeed determine their future path, it can never define your overall journey or destroy your hopes and dreams. I really, really hope the kids who are sitting exams this week realise that. Because over the past few days we’ve seen all the usual stories. Students stressed, last minute c ram sessions, the most importan t w eek of their li ves, post exam opinions... the list g oes on. Of course, the

annual dramas of some students missing exams because a bus has g otten lost or a train has bro ken down have been in full swing as well. I admi t I’ ve been lucky in m y c areer thus far . There’s no wa y I coul d ha ve sur vived y ears of university and no wa y an y amoun t of study would ha ve seen a HSC result resemblin g an ything worthy of a celebration. I’m just not that kind of guy and w e are all different. The students taking the HSC this week are all different, too. For the most part, they ha ve har dly began to live let alone determine where e xactly their future lies. There w ill be exceptions of course. We all wanted to be doctors at six-years-old but some legitimately still hold that dream and hence, the results of the HSC are exceptionally important. But in tr ying to c ater for ev eryone, is the HSC really only c atering for a minori ty and not do ing anyone any real g ood, apart f rom creating a culture of stress? Given the enormous changes in the way we educate ourselves these days, I often wonder if the HSC isn’t a little out-dated. To the students out there who will finish exams this mon th and then panic about the results, I can only say this: calm down. Do not for a second let a number define y ou. Just 13 years later, I wouldn’t even be able to find my HSC results, let alone allow them to direct or shape my future.

The issue of young people living in aged care impacts the lives of thousands of Aussies. Youngcare has launched a national awareness campaign calling on Australians to help them get young Aussies with 24/7 care needs out of aged care once and for all. Youngcare Chairman Nic De Luca said the issue is unique because a solution is within reach. “Aged care is no place for a young person but that’s where 7,500 young Aussies woke up this morning because there’s nowhere else to go,” Nic said. Youngcare’s “You Hold The Key” Awareness Campaign proudly supported by GIO launched this week

75.9 per cent of seniors; today, 83.3 per cent of seniors are still behind the wheel but just 82.0 per cent of Australians in their late 20s and early 30s drive. The proportional rise among seniors equates to over one million more motorists aged over 65, and now makes these drivers the third largest bloc of road users behind 35-49 and 50 to 64-year-olds, with the 25 to 34-yearolds bumped down to fourth. In other age groups, the proportion of drivers is relatively unchanged since 2003. Over 92 per cent of 35 to 64-yearolds drive, and 71 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds have taken to the road. There are now 15.6 million drivers on our roads.

Albanese loses leadership ballot and resigns from deputy leader position In a close contest, the Grayndler MP has lost the leadership ballot BASIL NAIMET @ICWJournalist

T

The vote on who would lead Labor into the next election was an historic one tha t saw rank and file L abor Party members casting a v ote to mak e up 50 per cen t of the dec ision, w ith the other 50 per cen t coming from a vote from caucus. Just under 31,000 v otes w ere equally weighted against the 86 v otes c ast b y caucus. Mr Albanese who had the higher number of v oters f rom the rank and file members, lost to Mr Shorten who won the caucus ballot. The ABC reports tha t 52 per cen t of the votes were received for Mr Shorten when combining the two.

Although Mr Albanese lost the ballot he was resolute in his assertion that the party that made him deputy P rime Minister would need to foc us on steerin g the ship back on course for a competitive tilt at the next election. He said Mr Shorten w ould have the full support not only of the Parliamen tary Labor party, but also from its members in the ensuing years. Speaking to the media after the v ote, Mr Shorten spoke kindly of Mr Albanese. “He is a decent, determined, notable Labor warrior,” he said. “He has the feroc ious c apacity to apply considerable intellect to holding the Coalition to accoun t, both in g overnment and I have no doubt going forward in opposition.” Mr Albanese announced he would resign from his position as Deputy Leader of the Labor Party. “I congratulate Bill Shorten on his election as the leader of the F ederal Parliamentary L abor Party.

Police snapshot Victim robbed of his phone along Aubrey Street

Police track down two men that bashed taxi driver

About 10pm on Friday, October 10, a male victim was walking along Aubrey Street, Stanmore near the intersection of Merton Street. The victim was approached by a male holding a small crowbar/ tyre lever, which he used to threaten the victim. The male demanded the victim’s phone; as the victim was concerned for his safety he handed the male his iPhone. The male also demanded the victim’s wallet; however the victim did not have one. At this point the victim fled the scene and returned home where he contacted police. The male offender is described as of a solid build, ginger/ brown wavy hair, long goatee beard, bent nose and wearing grey track suit pants.

Police have charged a man with multiple offences after he allegedly robbed a taxi driver in Glebe last month. At approximately 6pm on Monday, September 9, two men entered a taxi on Bridge Road, Glebe. After a short ride, the men allegedly demanded the taxi drive the wrong way along a one-way street, but the driver refused and so the men punched him to the head and face. They then fled on Glebe Point Road, after taking a small sum of cash from the taxi. The taxi driver drove to Glebe Police Station and reported the robbery. He received treatment from paramedics for his injuries. Both men have since been caught and charged with the offence.

Woman loses control of her car and hits wall of house

Man was drink driving and had passenger in ute tray

About 1pm on Friday, October 11, the driver of a motor vehicle was travelling north east on Wardell Road, Dulwich Hill. Whilst approaching the intersection of Pile Street, the vehicle veered onto the opposite side of the road and the driver has lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle has subsequently mounted the footpath colliding with a front fence. The vehicle continued travelling until it finally came to rest after colliding with the front wall of the house. The driver came out of the vehicle unharmed, however she was suffering from shock and subsequently taken to hospital for a precautionary check-up.

About 9.35pm on Saturday, October 13, police attached to Marrickville LAC stopped a utility after observing the manner of driving on Cook Road, Marrickville. The driver was spoken to and was subjected to a roadside breath test. At the time of conducting the breath test police observed a male passenger who was covered up in the rear tray of the utility. The driver subsequently returned a positive reading and was arrested and taken to Newtown police station for a breath analysis. The result of the analysis returned a positive reading and the driver was charged with novice range PCA. The driver will face Newtown Local Court.

olice are urging motorcyclists to slow down and take care on the roads after two men died in two separate inc idents on S ydney roads last weekend. A 32- year- old man died after an accident on the Bradfiel d Highway at Milsons Point. The other was in St Peters where Police are investigating a fa tal single motorc ycle crash that occurred on Saturday. At approximately 1.15am police and emergency services were called to Sydney Park R oad in St P eters where a mo torcycle had crashed into a traffic pole. A 28- year- old male rider was trea ted and taken to R oyal Prince Alfred Hospital by ambulance paramedics, ho wever he died on arrival.

Officers from Newtown Local Area Command attended the scene where they established a c rime scene e xamined by specialist forensic officers. It’s believed there were no other vehicles involved in the incident. Acting Superin tendent Mark Cook from the Traffic and High way Pa trol Command appealed to motorc yclists to be more cautious on the roads. “Motorcycle riders w ill no doubt tak e to t he r oads t his w eekend d ue t o t he good weather but they need to remember to be safe. With the warmer weather there will be increased volumes of traffic on the roads and all motorists are reminded to k eep to the speed limi t and drive to the conditions,” he said. He added that whilst only a small percentage of road users hold a motorcycle licence, they did accoun t for a lar ge number of road deaths; a statistic police would like to reduce.

Taking a self guided tour of J apan w ith friends, Ruth said she wanted to immerse herself in J apanese c ulture and wan ted to share her e xperiences w ith those tha t view and appreciate her artworks. “I walked for five days on the Kumano Kodo Trail which is on the Kii Peninsula. It was built by the monks and other pilgrims 1,000 years ag o with stone. It is a world heritage listed area,” she said. “I stayed each nigh t in a R yokan, which is traditional accommodation. One of the rituals performed is to g o t o an a ba thhouse called an ‘Onsen’. “The bathhouse has hot mineral wa ter. I was inspired by this daily ritual and one of my paintings is of w omen deep in conversation sitting in this hot wa ter, having a conversation.” ‘Musings in Ink’ will be on display at The Palm House, Royal Botanic Gardens from October 18-30.

mascara should be left in the drawer as light eyes are the new trend

MON 12-5 TUES-FRI 10-5 SAT 10-4 SUNDAY CLOSED 85 DUNNING AVE ROSEBERY 2018, NSW 159ICD3316

The spring-time is all about baring your skin, showing off your fresh face and shinin g in the sun; this season ’s beauty trends are about highlighting just that. It is time to sa y g oodbye to the times of hea vy masc ara, matte skin, bright lips and liquid ey eliner because dewy skin and minimal eye makeup are gracing the faces of models and fashionistas alike. Getting the look this season is easy, especially considering you w ill already o wn most of the produc ts that w ill make it happen, ho wever, there are a couple of essen tials tha t w ill make a worthwhile addition to your makeup bag. Your skin: Thro w away your foundation powder as w ell as your powdered blushes and bronzers because, to achieve perfect, dewy skin that is just oozing with moisture, powder just will not work. Invest in a BB or CC cream, or a good-quality tinted moisturiser for your basic, every day coverage and get straight down to the shops to pick up a highlighter. A highlighter is applied over your foundation or moisturiser on places like your cheek or brow bones to reflect the light and brighten up your face. Highlighters come in different colours but you can blend it in to your coverage easily. A c ream blush or c ream bronzer c an be used to gi ve y our skin that extra colour you may be craving however, use sparingly and remember to apply diagonally from the edge of your face to the centre. Your eyes: Here, you should be aiming to achieve a wide and bright-eyed look, which means it is time to ditch the dark eyeliners and eye shadows to make way for ligh ter, brighter colours like white and pale pink. To widen your eyes, try a white eyeliner on the inside of your lash-line and even a touch of white shadow on the inside corners will do the trick. Your lips: Bright reds, oranges and pinks are in no wa y part of this season’s beauty trends so put a way those lipsticks for another time. This season we should be wearing a nude or pale lip , something that a simple lip-gloss can provide.

Leaders and followers: the risks of smoking

More fun then an hour on the treadmill!

It’s funny how smokers say it’s their choice to smoke and no one shoul d be able to tell them what to do. Have they ever stopped and thought about wh y they actually started smoking? There is an old quote that goes something like: “Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done, bec ause they think they ELISHA want to do it”. STEIN Sounds to me lik e the c igarette comRegistered nurse panies have some pret ty good leaders. and midwife And good at finding followers. It turns out smokin g is ev en more deadly than previously thought. A study of 200,000 Australians shows the habit cuts 10 years off the average smoker’s life and is directly linked to two thirds of deaths in current smokers. The four-year analysis of health records in the Sax Institute’s “45 and Up Study” shows even moderate smoking is a killer. “We all know that smoking is bad for y our health. But un til now we haven’t had direct large-scale evidence from Australia about just how bad it is,” says study leader Professor Emily Banks, the scientific director of the “45 and Up Study”. The study, supported by the National Heart Foundation in collaboration with Cancer Council NSW, shows risk increases with the number of cigarettes smoked per day. The risk of dea th is doubled ev en among those smoking an average of 10 c igarettes a day, says study co-author Associate Professor Freddy Sitas from Cancer Council NSW. Smoking is the lar gest single preventable cause of dea th in Australia and kills 15, 000 people a y ear, says the Heart Foundation’s Dr Rob Grenfell, who worked on the study. One in 10 modera te smokers and almost one in fi ve heavy smokers (more than 15 cigarettes a day) will die of lung cancer. So, are you a follower?

This week I want to plug a great service offered through the government getting you trained as a coach! I t’s free and y ou can g et kids up and in volved in ac tivity. We all kno w bein g healthy involves movement and man y people enjo y moving so much they could even motivate others to get moving too. If you have ever thought of doing your bit to get kids up and moving check out the w ebsite. I t’s on w ww.ausport.gov.au and it’s to do w ith the A ASC (Active After-school Communities). From the site; “Be part of a na tional project that gets kids moving! Around Australia, 150,000 kids ha ve been jumpin g, throwing, catching, running, dancing, swimming, cycling, climbing, kicking, rowing, skiin g, somersaultin g... thanks to the A ctive Afterschool Communities program. You can be part of this program by becoming a community coach at your local school or out of school hours care service. The A ustralian Sports Commission ’s A ctive After- school Communities (A ASC) program aims to en gage tradi tionally non- active primar y school- ag ed chil dren b y pro viding f ree sport and other str uctured physical activity programs in the after-school timeslot a t over 3,200 schools and out of school hours care services across Australia. If that’s got you thinking you might be in terested, here are some common questions potential coaches ask: What will I be doing? As a community coach you will be delivering sport or other structured physical activity sessions to primary school-aged children in the after-school timeslot during the school term. What sort of activities could I deliver? We are seeking enthusiastic and moti vated community coaches who c an conduc t game- based ac tivity sessions in not only tradi tional sports such as netball, hockey and rugby league, but also non-traditional activities such as dancing, frisbee and martial arts. The possibilities for getting kids active are endless!” You’ll even get your own exercise and i t’s a whole lot more enjoyable than an hour on a treadmill!

For a taste of the exotic head to Marrickville Festival

C

ouncil’s Marrickville Festival this Sunday is a great place to try out lots of differen t c uisines, w ith mo re f ood f rom even more countries on offer than ever before this year. The Marrickv ille F estival is Counc il’s TROY DODDS @troydodds

festival of the y ear, regularly a ttracting crowds of up to 50,000. Almost 40 food stalls w ill line Marrick ville and Illa warra R oads, ran ging f rom the sa voury to the sw eet, and f rom the usual festival fare to exotic dishes. “One of the best aspec ts of the Marrick ville Festival is the e xtraordinary range of food on offer,” said the Ma yor of Marrickville Councillor Jo Haylen. “As a Marrickv ille loc al for the past 10 years, I ha ve made the Marrickv ille Festival an absolute priori ty destination. I just love g oing ev ery y ear, c atching up w ith friends over coffee, and sampling some amazing food,” Councillor Haylen said. “I’m told that more than a dozen cultures will be represen ted, ran ging f rom Turk ish to K orean, Nepalese t o Spanish, and Mexican to German. So if you want pizza, or gozleme, a giant pretzel, or a chocolate coated stra wberry, then the Marrickv ille Festival will be the place to be,” she said. Other e xamples of the hug e variety of international cuisine on offer are Spanish

paella, M exican quesadillas, G erman bratwurst and sauerkraut, and Chinese dim sums. For those with a sweet tooth, there’s Brazilian churros as well as macaroons, pastries, tarts, waffles, fresh lemonade, toffee apples, fair y floss, Greek sw eets, and ice cream. A selec tion of mark et stalls w ill sell corn on the cob, and locally made prod-

ucts like pots of honey, jams, preserves, relishes, sauces and other condiments. Catering and or ganic and sustainable local food companies w ill also ha ve a big presence at the festival. “I love that on an y given day in Marrickville there’s a queue up the street for pork rolls on Illa warra Road, or the macaroons at the Hellenic Bakery,” said Councillor Haylen.

“It just goes to show how much the locals really lo ve their food. And while Marrickville and Illa warra R oads are already t otal foodie desti nations, the Marrickville Festival is lik e any normal given day – but on steroids!” The Marrickville Festival is on Sunday, October 20, between 10am – 5pm along Marrickville and Illawarra Roads. Don't miss out!
