WOMAN SAVED Two police officers have saved the life of a 36-year-old woman who was trapped in a blaze. The house on Cavey Street was well alight on Monday morning when police attended and heard the woman’s screams. They broke into the house and managed to drag her to safety.

arrickville Police Station welcomed four new recruits on Monday that will see them take on the challenge of working as probationary constables for the next 12 months. Education Officer Sergeant Glenn Smith from Marrickville Police said the constables would embark on a combination of academic work from Charles Sturt University and general duties as police officers. “They have a number of different sessions to

complete in the next year. They need to complete their academic requirements, and work in the station as well. There are a range of duties set out for them,” he said. The probationary constables will gain extensive experience in their fi rst year. They will get an insight into a raft of policing duties including domestic violence issues, car accidents, break and enter incidents and robberies. Although general duties will be their focus, the new recruits will venture into other areas of policing as well Sergeant Smith said. “They’ll be taking enquiries about missing

Barker’s point lost in the feminist hysteria

I

know I’m off the election subject this week, but as a political reporter on television, I thought this was an interesting issue to tackle. Last week veteran male journalist Geoffery Barker wrote a column about the state of TV news, entitled ‘Switch off the TV babes for some real news – talentless pert-breasted reporters don’t know the world, let alone journalism’. Th roughout the article, female TV journalists were described as: “blondes.... with arctic white teeth, their breasts pert and perky”, “post pubescent babes with their empty chatter” that got their jobs through “mickey-mouse diplomas” with “narcissistic personalities and egos bigger than Tokyo”. Wow! You can imagine the reaction all that attracted. On Twitter, the online equivalent of a lynch mob was unleashed. Every post seemed to be synchronised in outrage. Various counter columns flowed and Geoff rey Barker’s name could no longer be tweeted or said without various profanities following. The generalisation of the article was offensive – but so was the response.

I think I’m going to get slammed here for breaking away from ‘the sisterhood’, but here it goes... Th is experienced journalist was lamenting the state of commercial news – and the broader point of his column was completely missed by feminists, blinded by outrage, who howled him down. Barker was wrong to just attack pretty females – there are plenty of ugly journalists, of the male variety too, that are also quite rubbish as well. But he has a point when he says some of them are there just for their aesthetic x-factor. There are a small minority that just shouldn’t be called journalists. The “pert breasted reporters” do work hard, you wouldn’t survive in the TV industry if you didn’t. But some are just not believable – they rely on other journalists asking the right questions in media conferences and usually a good producer to get them through. To deny the existence of pretty blondes on TV, who don’t have much more than a well-rehearsed delivery, is naive. Some people do make it based on their sex appeal – but maybe that says more about the audience than it does anything else.

Laura Jayes reporting in China recently.

The self righteous people who selectively reduced Mr Barker’s opinion piece down to little more than an attack on blondes with good boobs, were wrong. The accusation of sexism is bandied around too much. I’ve rarely encountered it in my workplace and most men I know just don’t see a female/male divide. When you can no longer pay a compliment to a woman for looking nice, that will be a very sad day. It feels like we’re getting close.

Laura Jayes will be writing for The Inner City Weekender for the duration of the 2013 Federal Election campaign

Marrickville PS demands better safety for its children BASIL NAIMET

oncerned parents from Marrickville Public School met with Member for Marrickville Carmel Tebbutt last week to discuss road safety issues for children during school times. The parents want the State Government to install flashing lights on Chapel Street and surrounding roads where school zone signs are displayed without lights to warn motorists they are nearing the entrance to the school. Ms Tebbutt has sent a letter to the Minister for Roads raising a number of issues regarding the safety of the surrounding streets. “I was informed the school did not meet the requirements of the 2013-14 rollout of flashing lights for 40 km/h zones,� she said. Parents and Citizens Association of Marrickville Public School President, Justin Beall, said there were serious issues that needed immediate attention. “With a school community that is growing each year, we believe we need to address these safety issues now to avoid a tragedy,� he said. A school student was hit by a car on Chapel Street in March this year. The child’s injuries weren’t life threatening but the incident prompted the P and C Association to ask Ms Tebbutt for assistance. “I’d like the Minister to come and meet with the parents so he can hear their

Housing market is booming Rental prices in the Inner West are rising, but the tenants keep coming BASIL NAIMET

emand for rental properties in Marrickville is still strong despite interest rates dropping on Tuesday, two leading real estate agents in Marrickville claim. Ron Alexander, principal of LJ Hooker, said the Inner West ring was gaining strong demand and doesn’t look to be decreasing any time soon. “We have a high demand for rental properties in Marrickville. We don’t have the stock to place on the market because they’re being snapped up,” he said. Even with prices for rentals increasing, people are still paying the higher prices. “Th ree years ago you could rent a two bedroom unit for $300 per week. Now that same two bedroom would fetch $450 per week. For houses the demand is greater and the figures are unbelievable. “In the last six months we’ve leased three four-bedroom houses for between $900 and a little over $1,000. The prices are high but he demand hasn’t stopped.” Ed Tancred, sales manager of Ray White, agrees. “We manage a lot of units with rentals from $300-$500 and they’re only on the market for two weeks maximum then rented. Our vacancy rate is 1.5 per cent,” he said. According to the Rents and Sales report from Housing NSW, the June 2012 quarter showed the largest increase in median rent for two-bedroom stand alone houses in NSW, an increase of 7.3 per cent in

Two officers rescue woman trapped in fire

Disorderly drunk: Man injures himself in police van About 12.15am on Sunday morning, police were called to a hotel in Dulwich Hill in relation to a male who was ejected and causing trouble outside. Police attended and spoke with the male who was heavily intoxicated and who then argued with police. Whilst police were trying to put the male into the rear of a police truck he became violent with them. Once inside the vehicle he became more aggressive and started kicking the inside of the truck, which was subsequently damaged. As a result of his aggressive behaviour he sustained injuries and was transported to hospital for treatment. Whilst at hospital it took four officers and a number of security staff to restrain the male before being assessed. The male is to be charged in relation to the matter. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

BASIL NAIMET

A

woman was rescued from a burning house early on Monday morning in Marrickville. Police and Fire and Rescue NSW were called to a house in Cavey Street at around

2.15am. They arrived at the scene to discover smoke and flames coming from the roof and windows of the building. Police officers found two women who had escaped the burning home, but discovered another woman was inside trapped and screaming for help. The two police officers, a 40-year-old Sergeant and 30-year-old Constable, both from Marrickville Local Area Command, attempted to enter the building, but were unable to get inside the home because of flames. The Constable ran to the side of the house where he ripped the security bars from a bedroom window. Both policemen dragged the 36-year-old woman from the burning house. All three were treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics for smoke inhalation before being taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. The two police officers and the 36-year-old woman have been released from hospital.

Firearms seized NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell and Commissioner of Police Andrew Scipione revealed efforts to crackdown on gang-related crime have been getting results. Since July last year officers have seized more than 8,800 fi rearms – almost 10 per cent of these were handguns.

Assault and robbery: Violent attack on watch seller

A fire engulfed a building while a woman was inside.

Employment rises Statistics released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics this week have shown that there are more people in jobs this month compared to the month prior. The unemployment rate was estimated at 5.5 per cent for April, with an additional 50,100 people fi nding jobs since March.

Police are investigating an incident at night time in Marrickville where a man was assaulted and robbed of a designer watch he had arranged to sell. About 7.30pm on Tuesday a 30-year-old man, who had advertised a valuable designer wrist watch for sale online, met with a prospective purchaser in Marrickville Road. Two men walked past the seller as he waited and then returned to engage him in conversation. One of the men then produced a handgun and pointed it at the victim and the second man placed him in a headlock. The man was dragged into a nearby building and an altercation ensued where he was threatened with the gun and stabbed several times in the leg. Both offenders then fled on foot with the wrist watch heading west along Marrickville Road. The men are described as being of Mediterranean or Middle Eastern appearance, in their mid 20’s wearing dark clothing and armed with a black handgun and knife. Police from Marrickville Local Area Command attended the place of the altercation a short time later and established a crime scene. The injured man was treated at the scene and subsequently taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital to determine if surgery for his injuries was required. Police have appealed for anyone with information about unusual or suspicious activity in the area to come forward.

Blends are the key

Help available National Law Week, taking place next week, is an annual event aimed at increasing public awareness about the law, the legal system as well as showing the community what legal services are available to them in NSW. CEO of Legal Aid NSW Bill Grant said: “Law Week gives us a chance to work with our partners and make sure that people in the community fi nd out more about our services”. Research shows that about half the population in NSW had a legal problem in the last year. 2.8 million people experience at least one legal problem, including 1.3 million experiencing three or more legal problems. “I encourage people to come fi nd out how we can help them, especially with everyday legal problems,” Mr Grant said.

New cafe prides itself on offering choice to coffee lovers offee has come a long way from a simple choice of black or white, with a plethora of blends and styles offering coffee connoisseurs an almost unlimited range of choice. One local cafe is taking the word ‘choice’ very seriously, leading the way when it comes to variety and meeting the needs of coffee lovers. Caffe Di Stefano Operations Manager, Antonio Nicolai, said the main focus when looking at the business model for the local cafe was to be different. He wanted to provide the ultimate experience for customers when it comes to coffee, with blends being the focus. “We offer six different blends of freshly roasted coffee. We know that coffee drinkers are becoming more and more sophisticated with their coffee palate. We are catering for those tastes,” he said. But it’s not just the blends of coffee that sets Caffe Di Stefano apart, it’s the way they deliver the coffee to the customer. “Our baristas are trained by an award winning barista at Caffe Di Stefano,” Mr Nicolai said. “Our team of baristas cover every aspect of coffee making with each customer, and having an award winning barista at the helm, helps us deliver coffee to customers with care and passion. “They don’t just pump the coffee out, they take pride in what they are doing. The proof is in the fi nal result, which the customer will see and taste.” The store was officially opened last month with the help of Marrickville

The Shocking Truth About Roof Restoration

If you’ve ever been concerned about the condition of your roof, then this could be the most important article you read this year. Unscrupulous roof restoration salespeople have been telling unsuspecting homeowners that they need a full roof restoration (clean, repair, re-point, seal, and paint) when in many cases all that they need is a simple repair. This has been going on for years but in recent times has reached epidemic levels. Here’s what typically happens... A telemarketer or door-to-door canvasser offers you a free roof inspection. Sounds like good idea right...? It is a good idea unless the roof inspector (usually a salesperson) does what unfortunately happens in many of these instances: he or she will grossly exaggerate the problems and insist that you really need a full roof restoration when perhaps you don’t. Now there are many instances where a roof restoration is beneficial. But there are also many instances where all you may need is simple roof repair. Local company Reliance Roof Restoration offer a free roof safety inspection where you get the option of actually seeing your roof close up. Any problems are actually pointed out to you. That way, you can be certain that any problems they advise you of are real and not made up or exaggerated. You can either accompany the inspector on the roof, or if you’re unable to do that, you’ll be shown photos taken on a high resolution digital camera. If your roof is fine and needs no work at all, then

Reliance will advise you of that. If all that you need is a small repair, then Reliance will advise you of that. If you’d like to have your roof restored, that’ fine... Reliance would be happy to provide a quote for this service. If you would like a quote on having your roof restored, you’ll get $600 off the quote if you call by next Wednesday. By the way, you’ll be placed under absolutely no obligation whatsover and this service is free for anyone with a home that’s over 12 years in age. Here’s what one satisfied client said of their experience in dealing with Reliance Roof Restoration: “A professional approach by all associated with the job. I was impressed with your attention to detail and advice on other (snall) problems. Follow-up inspection and after job touch-up work was particularly impressive. The friendly nature of all the workers made them a pleasure to deal with. I would have no hesitation in recommending ‘Reliance Roof Restoration’ to anyone wanting their roof restored.” Ken Durham

So if you are concerned about the condition of your roof and you’d like a free safety inspection, or if you like a free quote on having your roof restored, then call Reliance on 1300 300 748 or visit their website at www.relianceroof. com. Remember, if you call by next Wednesday you get $600 off the quote of a roof restoration. Call 1300 300 748 NOW! 136ICD2898

TAURUS

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

The New Moon on the 10th is the ideal time to gain clarity in all your relationships and you have the confidence to make the changes that are required. The Full Moon on the 25th gives you a chance to shrug off inhibitions and insecurities and to open your mind. Be careful of acting possessive, as this will only lead to power struggles. Your fi nancial affairs need putting into order to accommodate some unexpected bills.

GEMINI

APRIL 21 TO MAY 21

You’re feeling excited and confident about changes coming up in the next few weeks and once the 22nd hits it will be full steam ahead. The Full Moon on the 25th indicates a need to sort out some serious relationship issues. A serious talk with a loved one is what’s needed. Very often, how you relate to others depends on how you relate to yourself. Thus, if you are at one with yourself, it is easier to compromise with others.

CANCER

JUNE 22 TO JULY 22

The New Moon on the 10th indicates a highly sociable time and many of you will become involved with a new group of friends. The Full Moon on the 25th highlights problems on the job front. It’s obvious that something is ending in your working life and you would be wise to proceed with caution when it comes to handling prickly issues with colleagues, bosses and clients. Perhaps look for something new which fully utilises your skills.

LEO

JULY 23 TO AUGUST 23

If you are at all artistic, you’ll be receiving at least one pat on the shoulder and probably a good deal more. The Full Moon on the 25th highlights several issues that need to be dealt with concerning your children. Perhaps a younger member of the family needs to be taken in hand or extra help arranged in matters of schooling. Romantically, too there are issues which require your immediate attention.

The Full Moon on the 25th indicates that your head is likely to feel as if it is stuffed with cotton wool, and you fi nd yourself incapable of rational thought. It also brings a chance to banish confusion in regards to your value system. Unexpected news is coming your way from interstate.

The New Moon on the 10th indicates that if you’re planning to visit loved ones who live at a distance or going on a business trip, it’s likely to be a lot more enjoyable than you expect. The Full Moon spotlight is on your home and family on the 25th bringing any hidden issues to the surface. Also you need to be careful of rebellious behaviour coming from certain family members who may feel that you are trying to control them!

The Full Moon on the 25th indicates that you are likely to be feeling impatient, restless and dissatisfied with where you are in life.

The New Moon on the 10th is the ideal time to clear up outstanding problems and to put practices into place to prevent dilemmas from reocurring. With the Full Moon falling in your sign on the 25th be careful of being stressed out and argumentative. It is also a sign that you need to take better care of your health and to stop putting everyone else’s needs before your own or you will end up feeling burnt out.

CAPRICORN

DECEMBER 22 TO JANUARY 20

The New Moon on the 10th indicates that you need to take some time out for romance or other pleasurable pursuits. The Full Moon on the 25th brings unavoidable emotional issues to the surface. Perhaps someone hasn’t been totally honest with you and now is the time to clear the air once and for all. Also you may be having a difficult decision over a health or work problem, do not make any rush decisions that you are likely to regret.

AQUARIUS

JANUARY 21 TO FEBRUARY 19

Now is the time to have a look at redecorating or refurbishing the home but be sure to seek some professional advice.

Keep the lines of communication open!

PISCES

FEBRUARY 20 TO MARCH 20

You are mentally astute and others appreciate your intellectual vitality so why not let these qualities shine! The Full Moon on the 25th falls in your career house and some issues need sorting out before you can progress forward.

A trip out with a friend will be just what you need to lift your spirits and to make you smile!

STAYING HEALTHY

by Elisha Stein

Inflammatory bowel disease ustralia has one of the highest rates of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) in the world, and the problem is getting worse. But the lifelong disease, that mostly affects young people, has a low profi le even though it cost the national economy more than $A352.8 million last year. The number of Australians with IBD is expected to grow from 75,000 to 100,000 by 2023. Experts say more young people are being diagnosed with IBD – which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis – every year. A Pricewaterhouse Coopers report commissioned by Crohn’s and Colitis Australia calls for a national approach to IBD care. According to The Australian, Gastroenterologist Dr Greg Moore says at the moment, access to appropriate treatment is inconsistent, and patients usually only see specialists when the problem flares. But relapses are unpredictable and failing to treat IBD when it is active can lead to prolonged exposure to medications, adverse side effects, potentially invasive surgery or even death. The cause of IBD is unknown, but it is more common in developed countries and possibly to do with hygienic living or diet.

A

Dr Moore says GPs have poor knowledge of the condition and there is no permanent source of government funding for IBD nurses. What we do know that the stomach and digestive system is a mass of bacteria, yeasts and assorted microbes. Our microbiome is essential for the health of our whole body and exposure to the environmental toxins we all face now is having a detrimental effect on all of us. We should all try to limit exposure to things like anti-bacterial agents, pesticides and pollutants and increase our probiotic exposure. Remember a child that gets to play outside and get his hands dirty is a normal part of growing up and should be encouraged. In the same way we lift heavier weights to develop muscle strength. The more our body is allowed to use its own natural defence systems the better it becomes at using them.

Elisha is a registered nurse and midwife who has years of experience working in emergency departments, general wards and maternity wards

Contours Dulwich Hill: A gym for women of all walks of life omen of all ages can enjoy the month of May FREE with Contours Dulwich Hill Fitness Centre – a fitness centre for women only. Owner Betty Concina guarantees women of all ages and fitness levels can reach their goals. Betty’s message to women is that no-one can stop you from being the best you can be. “ Just before my body building career started, I developed tendonitis in one of my shoulders. I was told not to lift weights and that I will require having cortisone or surgery but for me that was not the way! I learnt to listen to my body and live with my injury. If you really want something, you fi nd a way,” she said. Betty’s message is simple. “No matter who you are ladies, you can reach your goals of looking and feeling great! Each one of you have a goal and each one is equally important. My team and I will be more than happy to assist you with any issues you may be facing. Combining a healthy eating plan and exercise, women can look and feel awesome,” she said. For Betty competition is in her veins. She’s getting ready for her next challenge, the Sydney Nationals in June. But for now, she’s getting ready to welcome women to her women only gym. “Contours Dulwich Hill will shape the way women look and feel,” she said. Betty knows the feeling of looking and feeling great, having been a body builder for 10 years; she knows how to keep fit and she speaks from experience.

ans of axed soap ‘Days Of Our Lives’ may not have to wait too long before it’s back on air. Rumours are rife that it will be back on television very soon with a deal to be struck with a commercial network and not Pay TV. Channel Nine cancelled ‘Days Of Our Lives’ late last month after broadcasting the show for 45 years, which devastated loyal fans. American TV show ‘Dallas’ has been renewed for a third season despite the star of the show, Larry Hagman, passing away late last year. It’s been confirmed that GEM will begin airing the series from episode one at 8.30pm on Thursday, May 16.

One of Channel 10’s best-performing shows, ‘Offspring’, is back on our boxes from Wednesday, May 22 at 8.30pm. Expect the show to be even more popular after the recent Gold Logie win by star of the show, Asher Keddie. Here’s one to put in your diary… if you dare. On May 28 at 9.30pm, E! are set to launch a new reality show starring American Olympic swimmer and occasional ‘airhead’ Ryan Lochte. E!’s six-part series titled ‘What Would Ryan Lochte Do?’ will give viewers an exclusive look into the superstar athlete’s life as he prepares for the Rio games in 2016 while building his fashion line, making buzzworthy media appearances, dealing with his unconventional family and search for ‘the one’.

Channel Nine’s new series ‘The Block: Sky High’ will finally air this Sunday, May 12 at 6.30pm. With a ‘Block’ series already airing earlier this year, could another ‘Block’ so soon be an overload? I don’t think so, the promos for this look great, they are running with a different concept and even I might watch this one.

The crazy Dutch are at it again but this time I think they’ve gone too far. A Dutch production company have launched a new reality show called ‘Mars One’ where they plan to send four astronauts to Mars in 2023 – never to return. Mars One is a not-for-profit organisation, which intends to fund the decade-long endeavour by involving the whole world as the audience of an interactive, televised broadcast of every aspect of the mission, from the astronaut selections and their preparations to their arrival on Mars and their lives on the Red Planet. Once on Mars, there is no means to return to Earth. Mars is home. I’ll be very interested to see how this turns out. Applications are now open worldwide by visiting mars-one.com.

Smash Palace, at Sydney’s White Rabbit gallery, showcases the reactions of China’s best artists to the shocks of the new century, from artists such as Cheng Dapeng and Zhou Ji creating surreal cities using, respectively, cutting-edge 3D printing and traditional ceramics, to Tu Pei-Shih’s teeming animations depicting Chinese history as a path to confusion and chaos. Smash Palace opens March 1 and runs until August 4, with entry free. For more information visit www. whiterabbitcollection.org or call 8399 2867.

PHD LAW ACADEMIC FINDS A LITTLE COMIC RELIEF T

he road to becoming a stand up comedian is a funny thing! Just ask law academic Justine Rogers who will be featured in this year’s Sydney Comedy Festival at The Factory Theatre Marrickville. It all started when Justine was writing her PhD. “Going out for down time, people would often ask me what my thesis topic was, and ask me questions about it,” she said. “It’s intense and serious. But often I saw the funny side of it and people would laugh at the things I’d say.” One would think writing a thesis for a PhD would not be something that you’d make light of. But Justine saw the funny side of things and used laughter to relax. “I want ideas to be shared widely and generously and I think when people laugh they are more relaxed and open to ideas,” she said. So how did stand up comedy come about? “A friend nominated me as a joke as an entrant for a comedy night at the Roxbury at Glebe,” she said. Justine got the shock of her life when they called her to tell her they had drawn her name to appear in the Roxbury Quest of the Best Comedy night. “I was shocked and petrified at the same time, but also excited. I’m a completion junkie, which means I don’t pull out of something that I’ve been put forward for,” she said. Since that event, a series of contests

Justine Rogers has found a little comic relief has helped her through her PhD. Inset: Comedy trio Aggressively Helpful.

and a network of people have led Justine to go down the path of comedy, where she has been doing shows at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville as part of the

Sydney Comedy Festival in Sydney. Justine will be appearing at the Factory Theatre tonight with Alice Fraser and Alex Wasiel as the comedy trio Aggressively

Helpful. Show starts at 10.15pm. Tickets from Ticketek.com.au or www. sydneycomedyfest.com.au. - Basil Naimet

Sport Jets out of top eight Last quarter losses take their toll on the Newtown side he Newtown Jets have slipped out of the NSW Cup top eight after their 28-20 loss to the Illawarra Cutters at Henson Park on Saturday. The Jets have now won just three of their eight games this season, and have developed the worrying trend of leading at half-time and even for most of the match, only to lose in the fi nal minutes. The St George-Illawarra partnership club, the Cutters, led 12-0 in the fi rst half before Jets centre and Tongan international Michael Oldfield scored in the 31st minute. Oldfield’s try triggered a resurgence by the Jets who scored two more tries through Kane Evans and Ryley Jacks with Chris Taipo converting two of the three tries to go into the break with a 16-12 lead. The second half saw the Jets accrue a 6-1 penalty count. That gave the Cutters plenty of possession and favourable field position for most of the half. Newtown looked to be in control when Michael Oldfield scored his second try 10 minutes into the second half giving the Jets a 20-12 lead. Newtown rarely challenged the Cutters’ try-line in the second half in contrast to the Scarlets who turned attack into points narrowing the gap to 20-16 with a try in the 60th minute. Twelve minutes from full-time the Cutters

half back pounced on a wayward pass from Newtown and dashed 70 metres to score under the posts. The try was converted to give them a 22-20 lead. Salt was rubbed into the Jets’ wounds when Illawarra scored another converted try two minutes from full-time to give the Cutters a 28-20 win.

Although Newtown were disappointing the stand-outs for the Jets were Michael Oldfield, Dylan Napa, Kane Evans, Nafe Seluini and Lama Tasi. The Jets have a bye in the NSW Cup competition this weekend. Their next match is away to Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval on Saturday, May 18 at 3pm.
