It was announced on Tuesday that NSW would be the fi rst state to sign up to the reforms. NSW Premier, Barry O’Farrell said the reforms were in the best interest of students, parents and teachers, and had identified the $1.7 billion in savings needed to fund the State Government’s share of the reforms. “Gonski provides more resources and fairer distribution and aims to achieve higher standards and a better education for every NSW

Of this, the Federal Government will contribute 65 per cent and the NSW Government 35 per cent. On top of this, the Federal Government has committed to grow its school education spending by 4.7 per cent per year from 2014 into 2015 and throughout the agreement.

T

his week Newspoll again reaffi rmed that Tony Abbott is the strong favourite to be our 28th Prime Minister. As he goes from factory floor, to green grocer, to a small business of any variety, he plays the underdog but with increasing prime ministerial confidence. For months now he’s been clutching a little blue booklet like a bible – it’s his “Real Solutions Plan”. He rarely does a media conference without it, urging voters to read it. Mr Abbott has made it the go-to-guide for this election. So what does the 50-page booklet contain? Well, mainly it’s all big picture stuff about values and direction and repetitive aspirations. There’s little details on policies or costings. Instead it asks voters to trust the Coalition on their “track record”. There is a significant void when it comes to detail or anything worth analysing, and the electorate will demand that void be fi lled over the next five months, well before Election Day. Mr Abbott has framed this election as a referendum on trust. So what promises has he made and will he be the fi rst Prime Minister in history to keep ALL of his promises?

He didn’t as Health Minister when he gave an iron clad guarantee on the Medicare Safety Net thresholds. So, with Mr Abbott as the authority, here’s a list of some of his most significant pledges: Promise: Abolish the Carbon Tax. He’s given a six month time frame. If the senate doesn’t cooperate he will go to a double dissolution election. He’s also committed to a five per cent reduction in emissions and says it can be achieved under his preferred direct action plan. Reality: Business groups say they’d prefer to go to an emissions trading scheme and prefer a market mechanism. If Mr Abbott did anything other than completely get rid of Labor’s carbon tax or the government’s preferred ETS, it’d be the backfl ip to end all political backfl ips. Promise: Abolish the Mining Tax and the compensation attached. That includes the school kids bonus, which delivers eligible families $410 and $810 per year for each primary and secondary school student respectively. Reality: The mining tax has failed to raise any real revenue and the Gillard government has made pledges (such as the school kids bonus) based on nonexistent revenue. Abbott will suffer some pain for scrapping handouts, but in the

current budget context he won’t lose too much skin. Like the carbon tax, he will have difficulty scrapping the mining tax if the Greens hold the balance of power in the Senate. Promise: Paid Parental Leave. It has an estimated cost of around $3.3 billion a year. Reality: Th is is a policy area that’s somewhat divided the party. Conservatives are of the opinion it’s far too generous and perhaps not economically sensible. Promise: “Stopping the boats”. Reality: The Coalition does have form in this area. Howard’s policies did work, but will they still work? Turning boats at sea is dangerous and it’s not exactly popular in Indonesia. There are many more promises Tony Abbott has to keep. But these are the key ones that will attract most of the attention in the early stages of a Coalition Government. Given the challenges associated with all of them, it’s likely some will be modified or broken.

NZ passes same sex marriage laws, sparking local debate BASIL NAIMET

ith same sex marriage enshrined in law in New Zealand, debate has again arisen locally over the controversial issue. At the heart of the debate, says Rob Forsyth the Bishop of South Sydney, is the question of whether the meaning of ‘marriage’ should be changed, not whether same sex marriage should be legalised. “The debate is should we change the meaning of marriage altogether,� he said. There are two schools of thought. “One view is a contemporary modernist view that marriage is a public recognition of a person’s love. People should be allowed to be married if they love each other, and that’s recognised by the State,� he said. “The second is the classic understanding that marriage unites a man and woman and any children born out of the relationship. The Anglican Church supports the classic understanding. “You can’t have same sex relationships without changing the meaning of the word marriage,� he said. But the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby disagree, stating that the Bishop’s view is subjective and based on a religious interpretation. Jed Horner, spokesman for the Lobby said the argument of modernist and traditionalist views of marriage

WorkCover warning: Parents should be vigilant on escalators

Women considering giving birth later in life now have more fertility options.

New options for women: Egg freezing preserves fertility omen in their early 30’s who choose to have children at a later age can do so if they freeze their eggs, according to a recent fertility conference at the University of New South Wales. A method spoken about was ‘snap freezing’ using liquid nitrogen to ensure women in their early 30’s had a 50-50 chance of giving birth later in life. Gabriela Rosa, a natural fertility specialist and naturopath, said egg freezing is well documented as being a procedure to preserve fertility in women who have reproductive or other cancers

W

and need to use chemotherapy before having a family. Her view is that egg preservation has its place, but to use it as a “cultural” choice would be irresponsible. “One of the problems relying on this type of method to conceive is that the success rates are low,” she said. Ms Rosa suggested an alternative for women in their 20’s and 30’s to freeze their eggs was to consider lifestyle changes and to work with their natural body cycles.

Families are being urged to be careful on escalators.

KATHERINE TWEED

ith hundreds of shoppers doing their last minute school shop, it is important to remember to be safe around escalators to avoid nasty accidents. Late last year a two-year-old boy had four fi ngers amputated after he was caught in an escalator in south west Sydney. To avoid another accident, WorkCover NSW have issued a warning for local parents, kids and staff spending time in

W

local shopping centres. General Manager of WorkCover’s Work Health and Safety Division, John Watson said that last year’s incident was an unfortunate accident that the shopping centre operator could not have prevented. “Th is was an unfortunate accident and we are urging all shoppers, particularly the parents and carers of young children, to be extra vigilant when using escalators so that no-one else is injured in these circumstances,” he said. Shopping centre operators must regularly test, maintain and repair escalators so that injuries do not occur.

Smash and grab: BMW stationwagon robbed

Centuries of history lost in suspected arson

Marrickville Police are investigating a ‘Theft from Motor Vehicle’ incident in Chapel Street, Marrickville around 2.30am last Sunday. A male offender smashed the rear passenger side window of a BMW stationwagon and stole a number of power tools and other items from the vehicle. The offender was described as male, European in appearance with short brown hair wearing a light coloured jacket and blue jeans and was last seen riding away on a bicycle. Marrickville Police are appealing for anyone who may have further information about these incidents to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Marrickville Police on 9568 9299. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The Holy Trinity Church built in 1886 has been burnt to the ground.

BASIL NAIMET

ore than a century’s worth of history has been destroyed after the Holy Trinity Dulwich Hill church burned down last weekend. At 3.45am last Sunday morning, police and Fire and Rescue NSW responded to a report of a fi re at a fitness centre on Herbert Street, Dulwich Hill. However when they reached the address they discovered it was actually the Church. Parish priest Father Dave Smith said it was a sad loss. “The destroying of the church hurts the community more than anyone else,” he said.

M

“As well as being an historic building it was a great place where children came to exercise, and play and generally socialise together.” But Father Dave is hopeful the children will be able to start their activities again within four weeks. “We’ve had a tremendous response from the community around this area who are calling us to say they can provide a venue for the children,” he said. “I’m not sure where we’ll go at this stage, but it won’t be long until we get a place for the kids.” Police say the fi re was extinguished with nobody hurt but do suspect arson is the cause. Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Flair of New independence New Theatre on King Street brings something different to the arts scene BASIL NAIMET

t’s not your conventional theatre but it’s just as effective when it comes to staging plays. The uniqueness of the New Theatre on King Street, Newtown is in who runs it. It’s an independent theatre company that draws on the efforts of volunteers including actors, directors, designers, writers and production and technical staff to make it all work. The theatre is exercising its independence under the leadership of a management committee – a body that represents those involved in every facet of the theatre. Theatre Manager, Gemma Greer, says the workers are represented by a range of people who fit into different job roles. “We have a treasurer, artistic director, production co-ordinator and each one represents the various people associated within the group,” she said. The theatre company encourages people to take part in the productions – whether you’re an actor or director, designer or writer you’re welcome to give it a go. “The stipulation is that you must be a member fi rst and then you can take part in the auditions,” Ms Greer said. The uniqueness of the theatre is that they have a full season throughout the year, from January until December. The program runs every month for four or five weeks. With only membership fees and advertising that circulates from local

He recently entered a number of his best works in the Royal Agricultural Society’s Sydney Royal Fine Food Show baked at his Strawberry Fields Patisserie in Dulwich Hill. He entered various categories including cakes, tarts, sausage rolls and bread. The competition was fierce. It saw a number of entries from the ‘big end of town’ battle it out. “You’re talking about the giants of the cake and pastry world and they’ve got great reputations because they have good products,” he said. His wife Kate said these companies have a “brigade of staff ”. “That’s 12-20 people. Strawberry Fields Patisserie has a staff of three including Simon,” she said. Mr Bimson was confident he could match it with the best of them when it came to being a top end chef. “I wanted to have a crack at these guys because they are the giants of the industry. I wanted to compete against some of the leading chefs… to show them and the public, that I could match them,” he said. His business has been open for just 14 months.

Brian Barrett, ACTING GENERAL MANAGER

Be very careful when discussing such subjects as sex, politics, religion or the environment as you could soon become embroiled in a hot headed discussion that could lead to a bad tempered dispute. You’re very quick to make assumptions and must stop yourself from becoming preoccupied in trying to get to the root of a personal issue. A change of scenery or routine will do you wonders!

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

The coming couple of weeks are a very important time in your one-to-one relationships. They may signal that it’s make or break time where a certain person is concerned. If there has been problems recently with someone, matters are about to come to a head forcing you to take decisive action. Pushing forward with plans at the moment will be a waste of time, you need to take time out.

GEMINI

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

If you’ve been dragging yourself around like a wet lettuce recently or you’re worried about an ailment that doesn’t want to go away, start paying more attention to your wellbeing. Get some expert advice if you think it’s necessary, and consider consulting a complementary practitioner. Perhaps you’re feeling tired because of the hectic pace you’ve been keeping so get a few early nights.

CANCER

Th is week’s full moon highlights the loving relationships in your life, and over the coming fortnight you may have to make important decisions connected with some of your favourite people. In fact children, pets or younger people may be a real source of concern either because they’re unwell or because they’re being stubborn. Taking time out to be with friends would be a good idea as you need time for yourself.

Although you’re usually painfully realistic, you’re in a very idealistic mood. Turning a blind eye to unpleasant facts may not matter much right now but in the long run you are setting yourself up for disappointment.

LIBRA

SEPTEMBER 24 TO OCTOBER 23

Turn your attention to your fi nances especially if you wish to get to the bottom of a mystery. You’ll soon discover what’s gone wrong as you won’t rest until you get the answers you want. Unexpected outlays are likely and you’ll need to revamp your budget in order to accommodate them. Your strength lies in remaining essentially self-confident and not falling prey to negative thinking that will only hold you back.

SCORPIO

OCTOBER 24 TO NOVEMBER 22

With the Full Moon directly in your own sign you’re likely to be feeling ratty and sharp tongued and because of this you may say things that you’ll regret once you’ve simmered down. It will also be necessary for you to rest your nerves, therefore don’t make any major decisions, as an important cycle may soon come to an end. A period of creative inspiration is at hand so get cracking and don’t waste any of it!

SAGITTARIUS

NOVEMBER 23 TO DECEMBER 21

What’s worrying you? Something is nagging away at the back of your mind and, whether you realise it or not, it’s using up a lot of energy and making you very tired. It’s time to take constructive action; if the problem is insoluble, alter your attitude towards it so it no longer dominates your life. Take time out to rest and look after your health as time away from your problems will give you fresh insights.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

Troubles are likely with friendships and one of them is about to wind its way to an end. Alternatively friends may be going through a difficult time and will need a shoulder to cry on. Social plans may get cancelled or rearranged at the last minute. The fun side of your nature is what really counts, therefore, try to have a plan B up your sleeve. You can get people to marvel at your staying power in any situation.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Th is week’s full moon will be highlighting any problems you’ve recently experienced in balancing the demands of your home life with the responsibilities of your career, forcing you to do something to solve the situation. The answer may be a lot simpler than you think, such as asking someone to help you out or do some delegating. New information you obtain shall help you to get ahead at work.

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

There’s a lot of tension in the air. If you can’t stand tiptoeing around, trying to be on your best behaviour, it will be better to challenge the person who’s creating this feeling and fi nd out what’s wrong. Don’t be surprised if you’re told that you’ve been adding to the problem. Before exploding with anger think things through. Also it’s worth doing practical things and current plans for improvements should be pursued.

All about bacteria id you know that of all the cells in your body, most of them aren’t yours! Our human cells are outnumbered by bacteria, fungus and the like. A grown man has a couple kilos of them just in his gut! What’s more is they are vital to our well being. There is rapidly growing knowledge that nurturing the growth of beneficial bacteria in your gut is likely to have significant benefits to your health and may be essential for: • Protection against over-growth of other micro-organisms that could cause disease • Digestion of food and absorption of nutrients and certain carbohydrates • Producing vitamins • Absorbing minerals and eliminating toxins • Preventing allergies • Maintaining natural defences Numerous studies have also shown that your gut flora play a role in: • Mood • Psychological health and behaviour • Celiac disease • Diabetes • Weight gain and obesity • Metabolic syndrome Previous research has also shown that lean people tend to have higher amounts of various healthy bacteria compared to obese people. For example, one 2011 study found that

KEEPING FIT by David Stein

Keeping your diet on track daily intake of a specific form of lactic acid bacteria could help prevent obesity and reduce low-level inflammation. But there is some bad news: your gut flora are constantly under attack. Your gut bacteria are vulnerable to your diet and lifestyle. If you eat a lot of sugar, refi ned grains, GMOs and processed foods, for instance, your gut bacteria are going to be compromised because processed foods in general will destroy healthy microflora and feed bad bacteria and yeast. Your gut bacteria are also very sensitive to: antibiotics, chlorinated water, antibacterial soap, agricultural chemicals and pollution. Because of this, you need to avoid processed, refi ned foods in your diet (this is essential for heart disease prevention, too) and regularly reseed your gut with good bacteria by taking a high-quality probiotic supplement or eating nonpasteurised, traditionally fermented foods such as: fermented vegetables, lassi or fermented milk, such as kefi r. The amount of healthy bacteria in a serving of fermented vegetables can far exceed the amount you’ll fi nd in commercial probiotics supplements, making it a very cost effective alternative.

his week personal trainer Alyssa Hutchings has written in for us:

“In today’s society food is often from either a restaurant, take away stores or prepackaged microwaveable meals, and for many people it may seem an unavoidable part of life, which is only another disadvantage to the size of our waists. But is seems that we have all forgotten that health and convenience can go hand in hand, without resorting to a low fat meal replacement shake or frozen processed meals. Th is is because the key to controlling your health is from the actions made in your kitchen. Ask any person on a meal replacement shake diet how “convenient” it is when the weight comes back, this is because they are unhealthy and not sustainable, although cooking for yourself is and it comes with many more nutrients. Anyone interested in taking on the task of cooking your own homemade meals; preparation and planning is only 50 per cent of the deal. There is no amount of preparation or planning that can overcome a lack of motivation called ‘no time’! Th is is why we need to start making our health a priority and that includes making time to cook.

The key to staying motivated is to be setting small but measurable goals for example, eating five servings of fruit and vegetables and at least 2L of water a day. If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. When you measure your progress you stay on track, reach your target, and experience achievement. Ways to stay on track and measure progress for you can include one of the following suggestions made by Brittany Mullins. 1. Keep a Food Diary. 2 Skip the pantry and head to the fridge. 3. Getting support from your friends and family. 4. Team up with a friend and hold each other accountable for eating healthy. 5. Keep nutritious foods on hand and ready to eat. 6. Keep tempting foods that trigger you to over-eat out of the house. 7. Taking a healthy snack with you when you leave the house for more than a couple hours. 8. Eat and enjoy your favourite foods. 9. Don’t let setbacks keep you from working toward your goal. Everyone has off days and may not eat healthy all the time but learn to listen to your body it will let you know what you really need.”

ANTHONY CALLEA TAKES ON THE BIG 3-0 IN NEW ALBUM W

hen Anthony Callea first stepped into the limelight he was a freshfaced contestant on ‘Australian Idol’. Now almost a decade later, he’s gone from a singing hopeful to musical megastar and will reflect on the journey through his new album ‘Thirty’. The album, which is being released today, is an intimate, emotional reflection on Callea’s life so far. As its title suggests, ‘Thirty’ was inspired by Callea struggling with the “scary” prospect of reaching his 30th birthday. “You know when you get to a certain age and the whole, big 3-0 is approaching, you want to do something that celebrates that milestone and I think for me, the way that I thought that I could celebrate it is putting it into music,” he said. A mix of original material and cover tracks are interwoven on ‘Thirty’ to create an inspiring, touching album that tells Callea’s story through music. The songs that Callea chose to cover span a range of decades and genres, from Cheap Trick’s power ballad ‘The Flame’ to Luther Vandross’ soulful hit ‘Dance With My Father’. While the songs may be diverse, they are pulled together beautifully by Callea, who puts his own stamp on the originals with his strong vocals. The ARIA-winner also co-wrote two original songs for the album, ‘My All’ and ‘I’ll Be The One’, which he is keen to release. “I’ve been waiting to find just the right moment to put them on an album and to record them, they’ve been sitting in my iTunes folder for quite a while now so I was

just waiting for that perfect opportunity to have them be part of a body of work that I was really proud of, because these two songs especially really mean something to me,” he said. Callea will also keep busy later this year when he appears in the musical ‘Grease’, playing rock star student Johnny Casino. No stranger to the theatre, Callea has previously appeared in ‘Wicked’, ‘Rent’ and ‘Dead Man Walking’ and said he was excited to be returning to the stage. “It was a role that came to me that I was very interested in playing, musical theatre is a very different environment and it’s a great environment, it can be alot of fun,” he said. Music has always played an important role in Callea’s life – he began voice lessons at the age of five after telling his mum he wanted to be like a singer he saw on television. As a teen, he realised he wanted to turn his hobby into a career and began writing, recording and playing gigs in his spare time. While Callea dreamed of being a singer he also pursued back-up options, studying business management at university for six months before dropping out due to a lack of interest. He finally had a lucky break in 2004 when he appeared on the second season of ‘Australian Idol’ and won over the public with his lively personality and strong performances, finishing in second place. Although Callea admits that shows like ‘Idol’ put enormous pressure on contestants he believes that, in the right circumstances, they can be the perfect springboard to a music career.

“It’s just important that you have the right support around you and you keep focused on what you’re there to do... Don’t believe in the hype, don’t believe in your own hype and just keep it true and real. And I think if you can stick to that frame of thought then it shouldn’t go wrong,” he advised. The pop star has since become one

of Australia’s most popular artists with his debut album going double-platinum. He’s spent time reminiscing on the past 30 years but does Callea have any goals for the future? He joked that he wants to conquer his fear of flying. ‘Thirty’ hits stores today. - By Shannon Cochrane

Grigoris Lambrakis (1912-1963) was one of the greatest political heroes of modern Greece. His life was dedicated to peace, reconciliation and democracy and his struggle and death, after his state-sponsored assassination, became the ultimate inspiration for two generations of Greeks who fought for freedom and independence. Fifty years after his assassination we honour his memory and celebrate his achievement, which must continue to inspire people, especially in eras of crisis like the current one in Greece.

www.innercityweekender.com.au ‘The X-Factor’ has revealed it’s fourth judge – Redfoo, from ‘Party Rock Anthem’ duo, LMFAO. Foo, as I will be calling him, joins Dannii Minogue, Ronan Keating and Natalie Bassingthwaighte. It’s hard to say whether this is a good decision or not because we haven’t heard too much from him, but I think he’ll at least bring a ‘cool factor’ to the show and would very much be a crowd favourite. ‘The X-Factor’ airs later this year.

ate last week we learnt that Mel B will not be joining the new-look ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ judging panel this year, after her employer, Channel Seven, won a court hearing that states the former Spice Girl must see out her contract with the network, which expires at the end of this year. There’s still no word yet on who will replace Mel but you can almost put your money on it that it will be a female. There have been reports that Geri Halliwell may take her spot, perhaps even Sophie Monk or Sharon Osbourne who are both very good at providing an off the cuff remark or two. I know it would be virtually impossible considering her star power of late in Hollywood, but how awesome would it be to see Rebel Wilson as a judge? Rebel is the biggest thing in Hollywood right now and would be a perfect fit for the show. From one talent show to another and

Fantastic news for all those ‘Gleeks’ out there with the hit show ‘Glee’ renewed for two more seasons. The show has struggled in Australia over the past year and is no where near as popular as it once was – it now airs on Ten’s digital channel ELEVEN. It’s important to mention, while the show doesn’t rate as well as it did a few years back, it’s still very popular on the music charts with songs from the show consistently charting around the world. Local factual series ‘Aussie Pickers’ has finally been given an airdate. Thursday, May 9 at 7.30pm will be the date and time when fans of the popular American series will be able to get their hands on the Aussie edition. The eight-part A&E series follows Lucas Callaghan and Adam McDonald as they travel around Australia looking through attics, backyards and sheds in the search for forgotten relics. The boys will meet interesting characters along the way as they travel through places such as Toowoomba, Wagga Wagga, Victoria and Tasmania. Channel Seven have been teasing this show for weeks but new drama ‘A Place To Call Home’ will finally air at 8.30pm this Sunday, April 28. The show is set post-World War II in 1953 and is centred around nurse, Sarah Adams, who returns to Australia from London to look after her estranged mother.

Sport Fancy some fencing? Marrickville PCYC is set to produce the next fencing champion BASIL NAIMET

oung people who want to get involved with sport who are on a budget need look no further than Marrickville Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC). Club manager Justin Mining said the club is unique in that it caters for two groups of youth in the community. “We provide an outlet for youth who come to the YMCA who are heading down the path of crime,”Mr Mining said. “As an organisation we want to build personal values and teach young people how to be upstanding citizens. “We have a regular police officer here at the club dedicated to helping them stay focused on being positive.” Mr Mining said the other targeted group are regular youth who are looking for something to do and want to come and take part in various sports and activities. The PCYC prides itself on provide a wide range of sports activities for youth to partake in. Sports and activities include: futsal (indoor soccer), basketball, volleyball, table tennis, dancing (in a range of styles from ballet to jazz) and even fencing.

Y

“Fencing NSW has its headquarters in Marrickville at the PCYC. They have a membership of up to 70. People from the ages of 10 to 25,” Mr Mining said. And as testament to the club’s international standing, former Italian fencing coach, Antonio Signorello, has made the PCYC his base. He was the Italian Olympic team coach from 2000 to 2008 before coming to Australia in 2009 and is now the NSW and Australian fencing coach. Astonishingly 15 of the 70 members are part of the national team. According to Mr Signorello, the next champion Australia produces will come from Marrickville. “The majority of fencers are situated here. So when Australia has a fencing champion you know it will be from Marrickville,” he said. “Next year the under 17’s Youth Olympics will be held in China. I have aspirations those who do well at the games will go on to the senior competitions and hopefully qualify for the 2016 Olympic games or in 2020.” If you fancy yourself a swordsman and the next big thing in fencing, why not visit Marrickville PCYC at 531 Illawarra Road, Marrickville. Antonio Signorello, Australian fencing coach.
