A 33-year-old man was arrested by police after making a 100-metre dash naked across the playing field to interrupt play in the closing minutes of the State of Origin decider at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday.

World’s most hated?

Tempe man with track record causes chaos at Origin decider CASSANDRA O CONNOR

I

t is the question on every spectator’s lips: was he a Queensland fan or a New South Welshman? Because the 33-year-old man who decided to streak across the field in the closing minutes of the tense Origin decider on Wednesday night at ANZ Stadium didn’t do either team any favours. Origin fans were on the edge of their seats on Wednesday night when in the fi nal three minutes of the match, Queensland looked to

cross the line. The Blues were moving quick in defence, but the course of history was forever changed when the 33-year-old man from Tempe ran 100 metres across the field to trip just short of the tryline and interrupt play. He was wearing nothing but his running shoes, and was dived on by stadium security and police officers. The game was halted and Queensland given a new set of six as per the rules, the fate of the game sealed: an eighth series win in a row for Queensland, 12-10. The streaker was restrained by security

guards before being arrested by officers, removed from the field under a pile of blankets and taken to Auburn Police Station. It is believed he is the same man who ran onto the field when Wests Tigers played the Warriors in an NRL fi nals game in 2011. The 33-year-old man has been issued with a court attendance notice for the offences of ‘wilful and obscene exposure’ and ‘enter or remain on playing field without authorisation’. He will appear in Burwood Local Court on Tuesday, August 6. He will also be issued with a banning notice prohibiting him from attending future events

at ANZ Stadium. Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Peter Gillam, in charge of a safety operation on the night, said the stupidity of one man marred what was an enthralling match. “Sadly one man’s actions disrupted the game during a crucial time. His running onto the field and into the middle of the play was not only dangerous but also idiotic and senseless,” he said. “No one wants to see a grown man running around naked at a footy match and this man can expect to not only feel the wrath of the crowd but also a magistrate.”

feel as though the Australian public have lost all sympathy for asylum seekers. It’s no real surprise when you consider the vitriolic political debate. Asylum seekers are never referred to by name, they rarely have identities and even when they perish, they are reported as mere statistics. In the past week alone we’ve seen at least 15 people drown, including a baby boy. It’s becoming an all too familiar fi xture in the news cycle. A predictable one too – an unseaworthy wooden fishing vessel, overloaded with men, women and children, it takes on water or capsizes, and then authorities scramble to rescue them with varying degrees of success. 3,000 people are arriving on our shores in this way every month – it’s a life and death risk. Literally. About 1,000 people have died at sea since 2009 – and that’s a conservative estimate. The truth is no one knows exactly. Imagine the families left behind – never knowing what happened to their son, daughter, mother, father. Unimaginable. But the boats do have to be stopped – and I fear it must be a ‘cruel to be kind’ approach. I agree with Scott Morrison when he says “the time for talk is over”. Sure, there needs to be regional summits and global solutions – but the

government needs send a strong message, effective immediately. Kevin Rudd is yet to work out his strategy. Tony Abbott’s tough stance is unfl inching. In 2008 Mr Rudd dismantled John Howard’s measures – the number of arrivals started as a trickle and now six years later it’s a burst water main unable to be contained. Kevin Rudd refuses to admit his mistakes. The reissued Prime Minister and his government are going through the Seven Stages of Grief. • Shock • Denial • Anger • Bargaining • Guilt • Depression • Acceptance Shock – when the boat arrivals started picking up in 2008. Denial – refusing to admit the pacific solution worked. Anger – blaming the world for changing circumstances. Bargaining – The Malaysia solution. Guilt – acknowledging that the number of arrivals is almost unmanageable. Depression – Kevin Rudd returns to the Prime Ministership and the situation is worse than where he left it, coming to the realisation that he has to fi x it. The Government now appears to be between Depression and Acceptance. Kevin Rudd needs to show he’s got a plan. Without a plan, he doesn’t have an

evin Rudd has missed the point entirely when it comes to the pressure on him to announce an election date. For the past few weeks, Mr Rudd and senior MPs – including Chris Bowen on ‘Meet the Press’ last Sunday – are going with the “in good time” line, saying only that the election will be called and held within the rules and allowances of the Constitution. In any ordinary election year, that would be considered a fair and reasonable tactic. But this is no ordinary election year and no ordinary situation. The truth of the matter is that up until a few weeks ago, we had an election date that had been announced by former Prime Minister, Julia Gillard. We were going to the polls on September 14. Th ree weeks ago Mr Rudd made the

TROY DODDS From The Editor’s Desk

decision to roll a sitting Prime Minister. As a result, he must now face the consequences and that includes calling an election immediately, particularly given the broken promises he made about not challenging for the top job. It is an insult to the collective intelligence of the nation for Mr Rudd to be gallivanting around the country – and other countries – building his PR profi le while confidence from individuals and businesses only worsens given the uncertainty of the election date. Back in 2010, Julia Gillard waited 23 days between rolling Mr Rudd and calling the election. Ironically, today marks 23 days since Mr Rudd was returned as Prime Minister. It’s 23 days too long, but one gets the feeling that Mr Rudd will continue with his unofficial election campaign.

election win or a campaign strategy. Th is week we had a hint from Kevin Rudd – he’ll tackle this from three angles. Global, regional, domestic. The Refugee Convention by which Australia is bound will be reassessed. I don’t think he will go as far as to tear the agreement up or suspend it. What is likely is a reinterpretation of the rules to suit the government’s tougher stance. Kevin Rudd will continue to pursue a regional cooperation effort particularly with Indonesia and other source countries. First stop – the IndonesianPresident-inspired meeting of ministers that would include not only the transit and destination countries, but also the countries of origin – including Afghanistan, Burma and Iran. And fi nally – there will come a re-writing of what it means to be a refugee, tightening the determination process for economic migrants or those not fleeing persecution but looking for a better standard of living. The signals are that those that fit into that criteria will be sent straight to PNG for processing and then sent back home. Kevin Rudd needs to announce something soon. The message needs to convince not just the people smugglers but the electorate.

New energy efficiency system will reduce electricity bill

BASIL NAIMET

anterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Club is implementing a new tri-generational system that will provide savings to the club of $190,000 annually by lowering the level of energy consumption by 15 per cent. The club will receive around $600,000 from the Federal Government to install the system. Federal Member for Grayndler Anthony Albanese said he was proud the government was providing the funds for such an important project. “Th is is a smart project – it is about using new technology to help the Club be more energy efficient and save money, but it’s also smart because the Club’s 30,000 members and other community organisations will learn from this,” he said. He added that since introducing the carbon price, a number of energy saving projects were being installed. Just last month he opened a co-generation plant at Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre. “Improving energy efficiency across the economy is central to our clean energy future. It will play a pivotal role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions,

Tax promise no pie in the sky Liberals say only way to be rid of carbon tax is to vote Labor out of office BASIL NAIMET

he Federal Opposition leader Tony Abbott and Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey dropped into Garlo’s Pies in St Peters last week to promote the Liberal party’s stance on the carbon tax and other “red tape”. After a quick tour of the business, Mr Abbott and Mr Hockey packed pies into boxes and chatted with staff to promote the business and learn more about its operations. However Mr Abbott took the time to remind those present that he would get rid of the carbon tax altogether if elected at the next election, and added he would do away with other areas of government policy that proved to be a stumbling block. “The pledge that Joe Hockey and I and the Coalition team make to businesses like Garlo’s Pies is that we want to make your life easier not harder… our plan for small businesses in Australia is to get rid of the carbon tax,”he said. “Our attack on regulation, red tape and green tape is about making it easier for the businesses of Australia to invest and employ because we understand in a way that Labor doesn’t, that small businesses have put [everything] on the line.” Business owner, Sean Garlick said a message needed to be sent to the current government that the carbon tax was crippling his business. “The carbon tax is costing my business the better part of $1,000 a month. My costs have risen by 80 per cent. Prior to the

better spent on other areas of his business. “That money could be spent employing more people,” he said. Mr Hockey said that the only way small

businesses could get rid of the carbon tax, guaranteed, and allow small business to flourish was to vote Labor out of office at the next election.

Feathered friend recovered: Robbo found in police search

Robbo the cockatoo was located by police months after his disappearance.

t’s not every day that a cockatoo is at the centre of a police investigation, but for Robbo the cockatoo, the last couple of months have been something out of the ordinary. The sulphur crested cockatoo, estimated to be 82-years-old, was stolen from the Phillip Island Grandprix Circuit Visitors Garden in Victoria back in May. As the mystery deepened and the chances of fi nding Robbo became slimmer, a breakthrough suddenly emerged on Monday. Just after midday on Monday, police executed a search warrant at Thornley

I

Street, Marrickville with the assistance of RSPCA officers. And wouldn’t you know it – Robbo was there. “Robbo the cockatoo was located in the rear yard of the property in a large cage during the search,” police said in a statement. “Police are continuing their investigations into the incident.” Police had been tipped off that Robbo was being held at the Marrickville home, but there’s been no word of any charges being laid just yet. Anyone with information about this incident should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

You could be saving yourself money by shopping around for the best credit card deals.

early half of Australians who use a credit card don’t know what interest rate they are paying. A survey by consumer advocacy group Choice showed that 48 per cent don’t know what rate they are being charged, despite the average credit card rate sitting well above the rate set by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA). “As a nation, we’re paying interest on more than $36 billion of credit card debt, yet almost half of us are uncertain what it costs us,” Choice CEO, Alan Kirkland said. “Credit cards are marketed as a

N

convenient payment option, often with a modest annual fee, honeymoon interest rate periods and seemingly lucrative rewards programs. “But the real rewards program here is for our banks, who earn an estimated $6.2 billion in revenue from average credit card interest rates of 17.16 per cent.” Calculations from mozo.com.au show average credit card interest rates now sit 14.41 per cent above the Reserve Bank’s cash rate, up from 12.65 per cent in June 2011. So the message is simple – check your credit card interest rate and shop around.

Prostate Cancer Testing – what should I do?

10

Around 20,000 men are diagnosed, and 3000 men die from prostate cancer in Australia each year. But the issue of testing for prostate cancer is the subject of much ongoing debate creating confusion for many men. So what are the recommendations for Australian men? The peak body for urological surgeons, the Urological Society of Australia and New Zealand regularly reviews all the international studies and trials on prostate cancer testing, treatments and outcomes. The world’s largest study – the European Randomised Study on Screening for Prostate Cancer - shows testing for prostate cancer reduces cancer deaths by 21%. The Urological Society recommends that Australian men, after being advised by their doctor of the benefits and potential consequences of testing for prostate cancer, should have a first prostate cancer test at or around the age of 40, regardless of family history or symptoms. (Men with a family history are more likely to develop prostate cancer). This recommendation is based on evidence that the earlier diagnosis of prostate cancer will reduce the risk of death from the disease. We also know that a man may have prostate cancer without revealing any symptoms of the disease. Testing involves both a digital rectal examination and a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen) blood test, which will help stratify them into risk categories based on the test results. The future risk of prostate cancer is closely related to a man’s PSA level; a baseline PSA level above the median for age 40 is a predictor for prostate cancer. Such testing may not only allow for the earlier detection of more curable cancers through more frequent testing, but equally will identify which men are unlikely to develop the disease, and therefore allow for less frequent testing. Not all prostate cancers are the same – some are aggressive while others can be extremely slow-growing. It’s important to note that if cancer is diagnosed, unless it is immediately life threatening, it may not require any treatment and be monitored safely with Active Surveillance for many years without surgery or radiation.

NAIDOC Week may be over but there is still plenty to see at Kerrie Lowe Gallery BASIL NAIMET

AIDOC Week celebrations continue at the Kerrie Lowe Gallery in Newtown with a range of quality exhibits from Aboriginal artists and groups. NAIDOC Week is a chance for all Australians to recognise the contributions of Indigenous Australians to society. Gallery owner Kerrie Lowe said she had selected a number of works done by artists from around Australia in this current exhibition. “We have ceramics from the world famous Ernabella Arts located at the eastern end of the Musgrave Ranges in the far north west of South Australia. We also have ceramics from Robert Edward Purantatameri from Munupi Arts and Crafts in the Tiwi Islands north of Darwin,” she said. Artworks from Sydney based groups and individuals include paintings by Elaine Russell, whose work can be found in the Art Gallery of NSW, National Gallery of Australia, Museum Gallery of the Northern Territory and in Australian and international collections. Other artists include Joe Hurst, a multi-media artist from north west NSW of Murrawarri descent, who creates ceramics and prints. Sharon Smith who graduated from Eora College, the Aboriginal TAFE College in Chippendale, has been an artist in residence at Boomalli Aboriginal Co-operative in Leichhardt and will also have her works displayed.

Get those kids to bed! t might not always be easy but it’s worth trying to get your kids into a good sleep routine. A new study suggests giving young children regular bedtimes could help boost their brain power. Researchers have found that inconsistent bedtimes are linked to children’s cognitive development and warned that there could be ‘knock-on’ health effects throughout life. The authors wanted to assess whether the time a child went to bed, and the consistency of bed times, had any impact on their intellectual performance, measured by testing their reading, maths and spatial awareness. The study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health, examined more than 10,000 children who are taking part in the Millennium Cohort Study – a long-term study of children born in the UK between September 2000 and January 2002. The research was drawn from regular surveys and home visits made when the children were three, five and seven to fi nd out about family routines, including bedtimes. When children were three, almost one in five had irregular bedtimes, but the figure reduced to less than one in 10 when the children were older. By the age of seven, more than half the children went to bed regularly between

When we can’t see the forest for the trees 7.30pm and 8.30pm. Children without regular bedtimes and who were put to bed after 9pm tended to come from more socially disadvantaged backgrounds, the researchers said. They found that seven-year-old girls who had irregular bedtimes had lower scores on all three aspects of intellect assessed, compared to children who went to bed at a regular time, but the effect was not found in boys. Irregular bedtimes at age three were associated with lower reading, maths and spatial awareness scores in both boys and girls. Girls who had never had regular bedtimes at ages three, five and seven had significantly lower reading, maths and spatial awareness scores than girls who had had consistent bedtimes. For boys, this was the case for those having non-regular bedtimes at any two ages.

his week we have the fi rst in a two-part column from practicing dietician Susan Williams from Zest Nutrition, on singling out parts of food and how it may not be wise to either love or hate individual nutrients. I tend to eavesdrop on food conversations in supermarkets, food courts and cafes. It’s not good manners but it comes with the job. Something I am hearing more often is “Do you know how much SUGAR is in that?!” We are in a new phase of nutrition puritanism; for the last few decades all anyone cared about was fat, and some people still have that mindset. However this led to the mistaken idea that “if it’s low in fat, it’s healthy”. It also led to a vast array of processed, fat free foods. Our rates of lifestyle disease haven’t slowed; the media and many health and exercise professionals are having a field day with the “obesity crisis”. So now is it carbohydrates’ turn to be the nutritional villain, no matter what quantity or quality is consumed. Is it the new number one killer? It’s my prediction that this narrow focus will be as unsuccessful as the last. It is too simplistic and fails to take into account the amazing array of changes our society has experienced that has led many of us to become less

healthy than in previous generations. Th is might sound crazy coming from a dietitian, but putting nutrition on a pedestal as the only factor in choosing food is a mistake. For a start we don’t eat nutrients, we eat food. And there is so much that is still unknown about how foods and their nutrients work in our bodies, in combination with each other. One of the important things we lose by focusing only on nutrition is food culture. We come from different backgrounds and foods mean different things to all of us. Every culture has food rules, traditions and ways of celebrating with food. These have been gathered over hundreds, if not thousands of years and still serve us well today.

CLASSIC AUSSIE ROCK BAND HITS THE STAGE AT RSL O

ne of Australia’s greatest ever Rock ‘n’ Roll bands, The Angels, will be pounding out four decades of their legendary brand of rock music on Friday, July 26 at Canterbury Hurlstone Park RSL Club. With line-up changes and variations of musical styles over the years, the boys are celebrating their latest album ‘Taking it to the Streets’. They’re on the road as part of their Greatest Hits Tour 2013 and have blown away audiences around the world including a festival in Japan. Current frontman formerly of the Screaming Jets, Dave Gleeson, said he was looking forward to playing with the band he grew up listening to here in Australia. “I just want to give all these classic Angels songs I grew up with the justice they deserve live on stage… with songs like ‘Long Line’, ‘Marseille’, ‘Be with you’, ‘After the rain’, ‘Shadow Boxer’ and ‘Mr Damage’ inside me, I feel them, and I can let them out onstage… our audiences get that, they know we mean it,” he said. In recent months The Angels have headlined sold out shows and are storming the ARIA Australia charts, having their album coming in at number 7. And the band will be giving it their all for their fans. Guitarist, Rick Brewster, who was recently named one of Australia’s five best guitarist along with Angus Young, said they loved performing live and taking the show on the road. They’ll be giving their fans the best show yet.

“With Dave Gleeson tearing up the stage now, and the whole band playing at the top of its game, that’s exactly what Angels fans who haven’t see us for a long

MRS CARTER SHOW TOUR

T

eloved pop diva Beyonce will be performing her iconic music down under as part of her larger-than-life world tour. The American star will bring her massive ‘The Mrs Carter Show World Tour’ to Sydney’s Allphones Arena on Thursday, October 31. Fans will undoubtedly be impressed with Beyonce’s glitzy show that will include special effects and an intricate, strobeladen light show to accompany her powerful music. The show is an artistic triumph and Beyonce’s biggest and most ambitious concert to date. Beyonce shot to success in the early 1990’s with the popular band Destiny’s Child, which became one of the bestselling girl groups of all time and spawned hits such as ‘Jumpin’ Jumpin’’, ‘Say My Name’ and ‘No, No, No’. After this early success, the group disbanded and Beyonce carved out her own solo career and became a charttopping performer with catchy hits such as ‘Crazy in Love’, ‘Single Ladies’, ‘Halo’, ‘If I Were A Boy’, ‘Love On Top’, ‘Irreplaceable’, ‘Beautiful Liar’, ‘Baby Boy’ and ‘Run the World (Girls)’. Her albums ‘Dangerously In Love’, ‘B’Day’, ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce’ and ‘4’ have all enjoyed massive popularity and success in Australia and across the world. She has won 17 Grammy Awards throughout her career and sold over 118 million records worldwide. As well as her musical success, Beyonce has also forayed into the acting

he distinctive sounds of Alison Avron will be heard tomorrow night at The Newsagency in Marrickville when she releases her second EP ‘By Your Side’. A solo sound which features Ms Avron on keyboard, she’ll perform with her back-up singers in tow. A regular performer with triple ARIA award winning band Monsieur Camembert, the 27-year-old has performed alongside great Australian talents Abby Dobson (Leonardo’s Bride) and Kamahl as well as supporting Cosmo Jarvis and James Walsh (Starsailor). Alison’s songs reflect a sound comparable to that of Lily Allen who has written songs for music giant Adele. The three track EP was recorded with her producer Josh Schuberth (Josh Pyke, Brett Winterford) at LoveHZ Studios in

Leichhardt and the songs from it will be a preview to an album they plan to finish in 2014. Alison, who is originally from South Australia, has made Marrickville her home for the past five years and said she chose The Newsagency as the venue for the launch for its intimacy. “I love the atmosphere that is in this place. It seats 50 people and it is just right for intimate shows,” she said. There have been rave reviews from around the country to Avron’s music. Alison Avron will be playing at The Newsagency, at 375 Enmore Road, Marrickville. Tickets are $15 and available by booking online at www.stickytickets.com. au/11091.

CHATTER ON THE BOX WITH NATHAN TAYLOR G

lee fans were in mourning this week after the sudden death of cast favourite Cory Monteith. The popular 31-year-old talent, who played Finn on the hit TV series, died after a suspected drug overdose at his hotel in Canada over the weekend. Monteith had a long history of drug-related problems, visiting rehab several times. Police are still investigating his death. It’s not known yet how ‘Glee’ producers will write Monteith out of the series but it’s highly unlikely his character will be replaced by another actor. Meanwhile, it’s been confirmed former ‘American Idol’ contestant and charttopper Adam Lambert has joined ‘Glee’ for a regular stint. Well, as this column predicted last week, Seven’s new series of ‘The Mole’

has been dumped to a late night timeslot. The ratings for the show were just too low for the network to ignore, with it now set to die a slow death with double episodes every Wednesday at 9.30pm. Shame. In some brighter news, how awesome was it to see Kate Ritchie (Sally Fletcher) back on ‘Home and Away’ this week? She’s been plugging away on other Aussie shows, but not with the same success as ‘Home and Away’. Her return will no doubt give the show’s ratings a much-needed boost, especially considering it’ll be up against the ever popular ‘Big Brother’ later this month. Nice to have you back Sal! Seven’s Sunday night drama series ‘A Place To Call Home’ has been renewed for a second season. The first season, which

airs its final episode this Sunday, has been a huge success for Seven averaging 1.2 million viewers per week.

shows, it would be nice if they could come up with something else for laughs.

After it feels like a year of promos, the next installment of ‘Underbelly’ entitled ‘Squizzy’ is set to hit our screens on Sunday, July 28 at 8.30pm. the years 1915 to 1927, ‘Underbelly: Squizzy’ chronicles the exploits of Joseph Theodore Leslie Taylor, known to all as “Squizzy” – the vertically challenged crime king whose ego and ambition knew no boundaries.

A new series started on my favourite channel A&E last week and I must admit I wasn’t really impressed with the first episode. It’s called ‘Car Lot Rescue’ (yes what will they think of next?) and it’s about auto dealership “doctor” Tom Stuker who travels across the US and assists failing establishments to reach new potentials. It didn’t really reach any exciting heights. It airs Wednesday nights at 9.30pm.

Everyone’s favourite comedian Anh Do is back for some more travel adventures on Seven, this time in cheery old Britain. ‘Anh Does Britain’ airs Tuesday, July 23 at 7.30pm. I am not sure why it is though that comedians are all doing their own travel

Lastly, one of my favourite TV chat shows over the last few years ‘Rove LA’ will unfortunately not be back this year on FOX8. Producers have confirmed they did plan to have third series but it seems things haven’t come to fruition.

Sport Jets win Knights battle Newtown wins convincingly over second placed Newcastle ewtown have sprung a NSW Cup surprise with a 26-14 win over the high flying Newcastle Knights last weekend. Both teams went into last Saturday’s match at Henson Park at less than full strength, but it was the Jets who came away with the two hard-won competition points. The Jets defeated the second-placed Knights after setting up a commanding 22-6 lead by half-time. Newtown had to draw on injured players and others with relatively little NSW Cup game time this season, and the team can look back on this win with justified pride. Former Knight Josh Ailaomai scored Newtown’s fi rst try in the 10th minute after the Jets had forced two goal-line drop-outs on the visitors. The Knights responded in the 20th minute with a try to former Test and State of Origin centre Timana Tahu. The Jets dominated the game’s second quarter and scored three more tries before half-time. Hooker Nafe Seluini sent Henare Wells in for his 13th try of the season, and he was also involved in a try by winger Paul Rokolati. Seluini scored himself when he backed up the flying Wells. It was an impressive and productive 20 minutes for the Jets and sent them into the break with a 22-6 lead.

N

The Novocastrians dominated the game’s third quarter and stretched Newtown’s defensive capability to the limit. The Knights scored an unconverted try to trail by 22-10 but Jets halves Ben Jones and Ryley Jacks combined well for Jacks to score from a well-controlled grubber kick by Jones. There was no further scoring by either side and while the Jets made a few hair-raising

errors and have yet to master the ability to close a game out effectively, they held on to win by 26-14. The fi fth placed Newtown Jets are back again at Henson Park tomorrow, when they take on the physically-imposing and sixth placed Auckland Vulcans at 3pm. The VB NSW Cup curtain-raiser at 1pm features the Cronulla versus Illawarra.
