Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith

February 11, 2013             12:00AM

SAS soldier and Victoria Cross hero Ben Roberts-Smith is leaving the army to pursue a business career as the “post-Afghanistan” exodus of elite soldiers hits alarming levels.

The most high profile departure yet of a special-forces operator comes as the military prepares to award the SAS Number 2 Squadron the Unit Citation for Gallantry for its work in the Battle of Tizak, where Corporal Roberts-Smith earned his VC for conspicuous gallantry.

The elite warrior, who received the second Victoria Cross for Australia in January 2011, is joining a long line of highly skilled soldiers resigning from the Special Air Service Regiment as the war in Afghanistan draws to a close.

A senior army officer said he understood why Roberts-Smith wanted a breather given the tempo of combat operations and the pressure on his young family.

The 34-year-old 10-year SAS veteran has undertaken several tours of duty to and has been engaged in some intense, life threatening combat missions.

“We wish him all the best, he has done so much for his country,” the officer told News Limited.

Others marching out include a former commanding officer and several senior officers and experienced non-commissioned officers who fought in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith

Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith, pictured here meeting the Queen, is set to pursue a career in business.

 

The wider army’s inability to offer the soldiers a vision for their future is a key reason for the departures.

“These blokes (SAS troops) joined the regiment to fight for their country,” one source said.

Retention in the unit has been good during the East Timor-Iraq-Aghanistan era and according to well-placed sources a turnover now is understandable and expected.

“This is a natural decision point,” the source said.

It is understood that Corporal Roberts-Smith will use his nickname of “RS” in the name of his business venture.

The 34-year-old is married to Emma and they have two-year-old twin daughters Eve and Elizabeth.

The son of retired WA judge and Army Reserve Major-General Len Roberts-Smith, he is well connected with the WA business community and will be the highest profile SAS soldier to march out the gates of Campbell Barracks at Swanbourne near Perth.

The Medal for Gallantry (MG) winner was awarded the nation’s highest medal for valour under fire following the battle of Tizak in June 2010 where he single-handedly took out two machine guns, killed numerous enemy fighters and saved several of his mates in the process.

Senior SAS soldiers have been lobbying hard for an increased role in Australia’s national security architecture, but they have been frustrated by peacetime generals that many refer to as “permafrost”, believing they are frozen in position due to length of service.

“The current Canberra leadership has no substantial operational experience,” one former officer said.

The one exception is Special Operations Commander Major General Gus Gilmore who is a decorated battle hardened Afghanistan veteran.

Corporal Roberts-Smith’s VC was the second awarded to an SAS soldier in Afghanistan after 33-year-old Corporal Mark Donaldson received the top medal in January 2009 after he rescued a wounded comrade under withering fire in September 2008.

A third VC from Afghanistan was presented to 29-year-old Corporal Dan Keighran from the 6th Battalion in November 2012. He also left the full-time army to join the mining industry in Kalgoorlie and to serve in the Reserves.

Last night Roberts-Smith’s spokeswoman said he was unavailable for comment, and all she could say was that he was a serving SAS member who was currently on post deployment leave.

A WHOPPING 5.5kg gold nugget worth up to $300,000 has been found in bush near Ballarat.

The “incredibly rare” nugget was found 60cm underground by a prospector, who wishes to remain anonymous, on Wednesday.

Ballarat Mining Exchange Gold Shop owner and dealer Cordell Kent said the prospector heard a faint noise on his detector and removed a dense pile of leaf mulch before he started digging.

“He thought he had detected the bonnet of a car when he saw a glint of gold,” Mr Kent said.

“He cleaned the top of it and the gold kept expanding and expanding … he saw more and more gold … he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.”

The nugget is worth about $282,000 in weight, but has an added premium because it is rare to find one over a kilogram, Mr Kent said.

“I have been a prospector and dealer for two decades, and cannot remember the last time a nugget over 100 ounces (2.8kg) has been found locally.

“It’s extremely significant as a mineral specimen. We are 162 years into a gold rush and Ballarat is still producing nuggets – it’s unheard of.”

The nugget was found with a state of the art metal detector called a Minelab GPX-5000, marketed as the best in the world, which Mr Kent said made the find possible.

“There has been many prospectors that have walked past the exact place where the nugget was found and have missed it with an ordinary detector and did not have the technology to find it…that’s why this guy found it.

“This detector he used is the best there is, it goes deeper and further into the ground, better than others.”

Mr Kent said the find was unique with the nugget measuring at its longest 220mm, 140mm wide and 45mm at its deepest point.

He said the find would increase the enthusiasm of existing and new prospectors to Ballarat and the central Victorian goldfields.

Mr Kent said the prospector’s new fortune would be well spent.

“He’s a person that really deserves it.

“He rushed to tell his wife when he found it and she didn’t believe him at first. He is going to pay off a lot of bills and pay off his house – it’s a real life changer.

“We’ve got 800 local prospectors on our records. I cannot remember the last time we saw a nugget of this size.”

TWO Australian friends travelling in Laos have been found dead within days of each other after reportedly overdosing from the same batch of drugs.

Kane Scriven, 40, died in Laos after a night of partying and heavy drinking on New Year’s Day with his mate Nick Parkin, who is from Perth.

The NT News understands that Mr Parkin, 39, was found dead in his Sinnakhone Hotel room in the capital Vientiane on January 4, after Mr Scriven was found dead on January 1.

It is not clear whether the deaths of Kane Scriven and Nick Parkin are connected but the men, who were holidaying together in Laos, were found dead within days of each other.

The ABC is reporting that both of the Darwin-based men died from overdoses, likely from the same batch of drugs.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed the deaths late last night but would not confirm if Mr Parkin was found in a hotel room or whether the deaths were connected.

Mr Parkin’s family in Perth have been notified.

Both men worked as crewmen for Workboats Northern Australia in Darwin and were holidaying in Laos.

Mr Parker’s brother Timothy posted a prayer mentioning the death on his Facebook page.

Jaimie Hildebrand, a friend of Mr Parkin, said she was hoping to hear this was a prank.

“Love you with all my heart,” she said.

Another friend, Luke Martin, said Mr Parkin was a great man and friend.

“Having known you has been an absolute pleasure and I’m sad to hear your (sic) gone, but so thankful for the fantastic memories,” he said.

The men’s employer also posted this tribute on its Facebook page for the pair: “Everyone at Workboats Northern Australia is shocked by the sudden deaths of Kane Scriven and Nicholas Parkin.”

“We are supporting their close friends who still work with us and are respecting their requests to grieve in peace.

“Our thoughts and condolences go to the families of Kane and Nick. RIP.”

On Tuesday, the NT News reported that friends had not heard from Mr Parkin since January 2 when he informed them of his friend’s death.

A TASMANIAN family that spent a harrowing three hours clinging to a jetty as “tornadoes of fire” swirled around them have become the face of the bushfire tragedy.

Pictures of Tammy Holmes and her five young grandchildren huddled beneath a Tasmanian jetty as flames roared about them at Dunalley have raced around the internet.

Mother Bonnie Walker had left her five children, aged 2-11, in the care of her parents, Tim and Tammy Holmes, while she attended a funeral in Hobart.

As the fire closed in on the coastal town, cutting off the family’s escape route, Mr and Mrs Holmes had no other choice but to shelter in the water under a jetty with their grandchildren.

“We saw tornadoes of fire just coming across towards us and the next thing we knew everything was on fire, everywhere all around us,” Mr Holmes told the ABC.

Bushfire escape

What the family saw as the fire bore down on them.

“We lost three houses and by that time I had sent Tammy … with the children to get down to the jetty because there was no other escape we couldn’t get off.

“We were relying on the jetty really. And the difficulty was, there was so much smoke and ember and there was only about probably 200mm to 300mm of air above the water. So we were all just heads, water up to our chins just trying to breathe because it was just, the atmosphere was so incredibly toxic.

Bushfire

The fire’s glow creates a red sea as the family takes refuge.

Mr Holmes said the fire raged around them for three hours along the wooded point.

“So everything was on fire and it was just exploding all over the place. Yeah, amazing. Just scorched,” he said.

Boomer Bay

Mrs Walker was cut off from her family as fire cut across roads.

“We just waited by the phone and received a message at 3.30pm to say that mum and dad had evacuated, that they were surrounded by fire, and could we pray,” she said.

Dunalley, Tasmania

“So I braced myself to lose my children and my parents.”

Fortunately, she did not, the decision to shelter in water saving them. Mr Holmes took the pictures and sent them to his daughter to show her her family was safe.

Boomer Bay – Simon Brooks

Pictures of the family huddled terrified under the jetty have gone around the world, with the family becoming the face of the Tasmanian fire tragedy.

The photos have been published on The Guardian and The Telegraph in the UK and the Huffington Post in the US.

Around 90 properties were razed in and around the small fishing town in a blaze that started at Forcett southeast of Hobart and burned 23,000 hectares.

A MAN escaped a drink driving conviction after it was revealed he left the engine running to have aircon on while he ate lunch on his lap.

Mark Andrew Allcorn, 23, told Darwin Magistrates Court yesterday: “I had my food in my lap, monging out,” The NT News reports.

He said he was not planning to drive home from Palmerston Shopping Centre because his mother was on her way to pick him up after he had been at the Darwin Cup race meeting on August 6 last year.

The refrigeration mechanic said he only got in the car to eat his noodle box in the air-conditioning.

His girlfriend Kirsty Watteau, 18, told the court she was the one who turned the car on.

“It was my choice,” Miss Watteau said.

Prosecutor James Tierney accused the couple of concocting a story so Allcorn could keep his driver’s licence – which he needed to keep his job.

——————————————————————————————–

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 0 to 27 are ruled by the sum of the first three letters of the name.

Mark Andrew Allcorn

13 (M is the 13th letter of the alphabet) + 1 (a is the 1st letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 32

So the number 32 rules his first twenty-seven years of life.

32 = Excuses.  Fighting for his freedom.  Winning.

AUSTRALIA posted its hottest day on record yesterday, with temperatures expected to rise even further today.

The average maximum temperature across Australia reached 40.33 degrees on Monday, beating the previous record of 40.17 degrees set in 1972, the Bureau of Meteorology’s David Jones told AAP.

Average maximum temperatures have risen above 40 degrees only three times in recorded history.

”We had the hottest day on record for Australia (on Monday) and today it looks like we may well go better again,” Dr Jones said.

”This really puts the national dimension of this heat event into bigger context.”

Other data from the bureau showed maximum temperatures across the continent in the last four months of 2012 were 1.6 degrees above average, breaking all previous records.

 

Aaron Coutts-Smith, the bureau’s NSW manager for climate services, expects the run of dry and hot conditions to continue for at least the next week.

”What makes this event quite exceptional is how widespread and intense it’s been,” he said.

”We have been breaking records across all states and territories in Australia over the course of the event so far.”

Heatwave

Hobart recorded its hottest day in 120 years on Friday, when the temperature peaked at 41.8 degrees.

Hay, in southwest NSW, climbed to 47.7 degrees on Saturday – its highest in 56 years.

Sydney is expected to reach a maximum of 43 degrees today, which would make it the third highest temperature on record.

Markus Donat, from the Climate Change Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, says periods of high temperatures have increased in recent decades.

Extreme fire threat

We’re not even at the half-way mark and it’s already looking like the cruelest of summers, with catastrophic weather conditions on the card…

”In recent studies we have analysed how extreme temperatures have changed globally,” he said.

”For most regions, including Australia, we found that extremely high temperatures have become more frequent and more intense.”

Dr Donat’s research also shows extremely low temperatures have occurred less frequently than they did in the middle of the 20th century.

”Counting the number of very warm days (defined as the warmest five per cent between 1951 and 1980) we found that during the most recent three decades … the frequency of days in this warmest category has increased by 40 per cent globally,” he said.

Temperatures soared by 20C in less than three hours this morning as the heatwave crossing Australia shows no signs of slowing down.

Things are already hotting up in New South Wales where the mercury is forecast to hit 43C in Sydney and other parts of the state.

Temperatures exceeded 30 degrees soon after the sun came up this morning.

Total fire ban

 

Bega on the state’s south coast was the first town to hit 40 degrees at 11.30am (AEDT).

It recorded 37.8 degrees at 9am after the temperatures rose almost 15 degrees in an hour, up from from 23 degrees at 8am.

But a southerly wind change at about 3.30pm (AEDT) has resulted in temperatures dropping to the mid-20s.

Michael Clunie, who works for Forests NSW, was ordered out of the Bomballa State Forrest in the morning when the temperature topped 41 Celsius.

”It’s a relief,” he said of the southerly.

”People were worried about the whole area.”

Jo, a local business owner in the town’s main strip, said takings were down by 75 per cent when she went to the bank after closing shop.

”The people just didn’t come out or were evacuating and a lot of people who work in offices in Bega left because they were worried about their homes,” she said.

No sweat with the internet

Temperatures of 40 degrees were recorded in Sydney at 12.30pm, up from 27 degrees at 9am.

Sydney is expected to peak at 43 degrees this afternoon, with the temperatures hovering around the 30 degree mark for most of the evening.

But, the cool change has dropped temperatures dramatically on the far south coast of NSW.

At Merimbula, the temperature dropped from a near-record January high of 41.1 degrees Centigrade at 1.07pm (AEDT) to 24.1 degrees as an east-southeast change brought welcome relief.

Heatwave

The change is moving north up the coast and is expected to reach Sydney before midnight.

Many are taking refuge from the NSW heatwave by staying indoors, while the more adventurous have headed to the beach.

While workers can luxuriate in their air-conditioned offices, holidaymakers are finding other ways to cool down.

Extra surf lifesavers volunteered today at beaches that are not normally patrolled on weekdays.

Hottest Days

According to the Bureau of Meteorology’s automatic weather station, the hottest place in NSW is just west of Kangaroo Valley, with a temperature of 42.7 degrees.

Experts have warned air conditioners are likely to struggle in the NSW heatwave posing a danger to the power network.

“The hotter it is outside the harder it is for (a system) to reject the heat,” said University of South Australia professor of sustainable energy Wasim Saman.

“So it operates with less efficiency and that obviously makes it struggle.”

Heatwave

Ouyen farmer Brent Morrish walking across scorched Victorian earth with dogs Beau and Lucky.

A heatwave means the cooling systems will run constantly and this increases the risk of a local or area-wide power outage.

“Obviously there’s a danger to the power network,” Prof Saman said.

About 2100 homes and businesses in Sydney’s Freshwater area were affected by a power outage this afternoon.

Supplier Ausgrid says power is back to most homes in Freshwater and Allambie Heights after overhead fault.

Heat

Crews were still working to bring power back to a final 50 homes at 2.45pm.

Weather records are tipped to fall in Queensland this week, where the outback town of Birdsville is expected to remain above 45C all week.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Sam Campbell said the town hit 44.8C yesterday.

“We’ve had six days of 45 degrees or more (including yesterday) and when (today) goes above 45 degrees that will be the longest period of temperatures above 45 degrees in Birdsville since records began there in 1892,” Mr Campbell said.

State temperatures soar

The bushfire danger extends far beyond Sydney’s city limits, with parts of the state are already copping it

In Brisbane temperatures are expected to remain above 30C for the week and will reach 41C in the southeast.

In Victoria temperatures continue to soar with parts of the state hitting 33C before 9am.

Yarrawonga, near the New South Wales border, reached 33.5C at 8.35 this morning. Rutherglen, in northeastern Victoria, was 34.1C just after 9am.

Today Melbourne is expected to reach a top of 31C before a cool change is expected late in the day.

Canberra is also sweltering through its fifth day of a heatwave with a predicted top temperature of 38C.

Temperatures had reached 34C by 11.30am and have been 5C above average since Friday.

 

Last Updated: Tue 8 Jan 17:00 AEST Chart of Temperatures

 

Weather analysis to be released today is expected to show Australia is sweltering through its hottest days in history.

Bureau of Meteorology forecast modelling estimates show the mercury was expected to hit a new national record yesterday and today.

The previous national high of 40.17C set was on December 21, 1972.

Yesterday’s national temperature will be released at 2pm.

Monday may only be a record for 24 hours, as today is expected to be even hotter as the spread of heat widens.

The national temperature is calculated from about 700 weather stations across the country, but is processed as a mathematical interpolation instead of an average.

Bureau figures for Sunday, released yesterday, show the national temperature was 39.71C, and marked the first time it has stayed above 39C for five days in a row.

But bureau climate monitoring manager Karl Braganza said he expected that record to stretch to seven days when yesterday and today’s figures were calculated.

“The forecast for today and tomorrow is expected to exceed that record of 40.17 degrees,” Mr Barganza said.

“It will be touch and go, these records are hard to break. But we’re expecting to at least give it a good push.”

The hottest place today is forecast to be Oodnadatta in South Australia, at 46C.

The coolest places should be in national parks on the southern tip of Tasmania, at 16C.

The bureau believes waves of heat will repeat every few days until a monsoon breaks the pattern.

Weather services assistant director Alasdair Hainsworth said a low near Timor could develop into a cyclone in the next day or two

But he added that without a circuit breaker, the waves of extreme heat would continue.

“Unfortunately, with this super-hot air, we could see this pattern continue repeating itself for a while until we see the hot air flushed out,” he said.

SYDNEY woman Ally Vagg and her boyfriend Bryan Williams are living a South American nightmare, stranded in Bolivia because they are infected with rare flesh-eating parasites that crawl out of their skin.

Ms Vagg, 28, and her Gold Coast boyfriend had returned from a dream trip to the Amazon basin last month with what they thought were infected mosquito bites.

WARNING: DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU ARE SQUEAMISH

But when the pair started to feel something squirming under their skin and occasionally poking its head out of some of the open wounds, the couple made the horrific discovery that they had ntehuman bot fly infection.

Fly larvae had been living under their skin, feeding on their flesh. The maggots eventually crawl out of the host body and become large densely haired bot flies that resemble bumblebees.

Ms Vagg and Mr Williams, who have already pulled seven of the worm-like larvae from wounds on their stomach, back and legs, said they had battled language barriers, “useless” doctors and a third world medical system in Bolivia.

According to medical advice on the bot fly, up to 50 eggs could be living in each wound.

The fly deposits its eggs on to a carrier insect like a mosquito and the larvae penetrate the human host’s unbroken skin when the carrier lands.

Mr Williams, who was born in Tamworth and relocated to the Gold Coast 11 years ago, spent days with tape over his stomach wound, a method used to starve the larvae of air and draw them to the surface.

“I lifted my shirt to see the head of it crawling at the top of my skin looking like a worm or fishing bait,” Mr Williams said.

“That was it, I proceeded straight to the emergency to get it removed.

“The doctor spoke only Spanish, it was 11pm at night and he had never seen this thing that I claimed to have before.”

After several attempts to extract the larvae at his accommodation, Mr Williams’ friends finally pulled out three of the inch-long larvae.

“We all nearly puked. Repeatedly.”

There is a chance the pair may have to undergo minor surgery to remove the larvae.

“I am going to the tropical disease doctor for full removal, I don’t care if he cuts a dinner plate hole in me with no anesthetic,” Mr Williams said, who “I can feel it move.”

Local travel doctors said bot fly infection was rare in Australia but tourists occasionally returned from Central and South America with sores that failed to heal because they were infected with the larvae.

The couple hope to return to Australia in mid to late February but must remain in Bolivia until at least next month when they expect to be fully healed.

January 08, 2013            12:00AM

BUSHFIRES continue across much of Australia as infernal conditions threaten catastrophe.

Tasmania continues to burn, Victoria faces a renewed fire threat and NSW will today wake to its most dangerous fire-risk day on record.

Although one fire near Wagga Wagga had eased by last night, a firefighter has been burned and a tanker destroyed during a blaze at Goulburn.

An emergency alert telephone warning message has been sent to areas in NSW deemed at “catastrophic” fire risk.

The NSW Rural Fire Service has sent a warning SMS to the Illawarra, Shoalhaven and the Southern Ranges regions ahead of a 43C forecast and recommends people escape while they can.

The service said people should leave by morning.

NSW Parks and Wildlife rangers have already begun visiting popular campsites amid Tuesday’s closure of the state’s national parks and reserves.

A spokesman said rangers would continue visiting campsites on Tuesday morning, encouraging people to leave.

He said there would be no forced evacuations unless there was a fire emergency.

In Victoria, a massive bushfire could potentially double in size and hit small farming communities in Victoria’s southwest, as the north of the state faces severe conditions.

There is a threat to lives and property with the southwest Victorian settlement of Drik Drik under direct attack from fire and embers, authorities said on Monday night.

An afternoon wind change swung the 4000-hectare Kentbruck fire on a path to Drik Drik, an agricultural farming area of about 30 houses.

Authorities warned the out-of-control bushfire had the potential to double in size to 8000 hectares in an afternoon with westerly to south-westerly winds of up to 40km/h on Tuesday capable of pushing the fire a significant distance.

Fire services commissioner Craig Lapsley said the immediate concern on Monday night was the Drik Drik area but the key issue would be on Tuesday.

Bushfires

At Dunalley, Tasmania, the local community has been collecting and distributing clothes and other necessities to victims. Picture: Linda Smith

“It will be a fire that will be pushed with winds and we believe that it’s got the potential to move significant distance tomorrow, potentially block the Princes Highway and have further impacts on the rural community around Drik Drik and Dartmoor,” Mr Lapsley said.

Nearly 500 firefighters and a dozen aircraft are battling the blaze, which started on Friday and has mainly burnt through pine plantations.

The Country Fire Authority said there had been no reports of property damage or loss of life by early Monday night, dismissing earlier rumours that at least one home had been hit by the fire.

A spokeswoman said there was still a risk to lives and property.

A number of roads have been closed and most of the 250 residents of nearby Dartmoor have already left the town.

Mr Lapsley warned the next 24 hours would be critical, but he said the Victorian towns of Portland, Nelson, Heywood and Mt Gambier in South Australia were unlikely to be directly affected by the fire.

“We are doing significant planning on the potential of how large it could get, that is not a scenario that we would see at this stage, where those major centres would be impacted by this fire,” he said at the State Control Centre in Melbourne.

Hobart

“It would need a significant run of fire that is not predicted, however in this general area it could increase from 4000 to 8000 hectares in size in an afternoon so it has potential to move, but not to move to impact on major centres.”

Mr Lapsley said the main concern on Tuesday was for northern Victoria, which faces yet another day of hot conditions, with total fire bans declared in the Mallee, Wimmera, Northern Country and North East fire districts.

He said there was a severe fire danger stretching along the South Australian border, the Murray River and the NSW border.

Lightning strikes have already sparked blazes in northeastern Victoria and there are also fears that fires across the Murray River in NSW may reach Victoria if they take hold.

Northern parts of the state have experienced several days in a row above 40C.

Hottest Days

In Tasmania, which has already taken the brunt of the first of this year’s major fires, and continues to do so, Prime Minister Julia Gillard has urged Tasmanians to stay vigilant as bushfires continue to burn out of control.

rex tom findlay sculptor lightning strike thg 130107 wblog Stone Breasts Miraculously Survive Lightning Strike

In what seems like a precision strike, a lightning bolt crashed down from the skies over Australia into a voluptuous Venus de Milo statue, with the breasts the only part of the torso surviving intact.

On Jan. 4 Tom Finlay, the stonemasonry head at Finlay’s Stonemasonry in Yarrawonga, Australia, was standing in the courtyard when the white flash came from the sky, striking the nearly 5-foot-tall statue he had hand-carved.

“There was a clap of thunder and the sculpture blew up like a rocket-launcher had hit it,” he told the NT News. “The lightning looked like a serpent. Everything disintegrated but the breasts –all that’s left is what’s under her hips.”

The statue’s 66-pound stone breasts fell over 26 feet from the steel column it was perched atop, but miraculously did not shatter. The NT News reported that only one nipple was damaged.

Finlay said that he isn’t sure what to do with the surviving bosom.

“It’s still a bit raw,” he said. “I’ll leave the statue the way it is to show the force of nature … I might mount [the breasts] and hang them in my office.”

07:14 EST            6 December 2012

A young woman ripped from the jaws of a deadly crocodile has spoken of her miraculous recovery following the horrific ordeal.

Pretty Tara Hawkes was grabbed by the monster croc while paddling with friends in a freshwater pool near Dugong Bay, in the north of Western Australia.

The 23-year-old had been working aboard luxury cruiser, True North, on April Fool’s Day this year, when she decided to cool off in the water.

Wounds: The cuts were so deep the pool ran red and Tara feared she would lose her leg

Wounds: The cuts were so deep the pool ran red and Tara feared she would lose her leg (left). She was airlifted to hospital in the cruise ship’s helicopter (right)

What should have been a relaxing dip soon turned into a nightmare for the hostess when she felt the crocodile grab her left leg with excruciating force.

Tara, from Vasse in Western Australia, said she realised immediately what had happened.

She said: ‘I felt this impact on my leg and I was pulled under water. Straight away I knew it was a crocodile.

‘I managed to get my head up and scream ‘croc’ and then this giant dragged me under again. He was playing with me like I was a teddy bear.

‘I got my head above water again and this time I was swearing and saying get this thing off me. I was just screaming for help.

‘I couldn’t feel any pain but I could see his teeth sinking into my leg.

‘I thought I was going to die. I could only see about four centimetres of the top of my leg and the rest was in the croc’s gob.’

Beast: Saltwater crocodiles usually wait for their prey to get close to the water's edge before striking and use their incredible strength to drag them into the waterBeast: Saltwater crocodiles usually wait for their prey to get close to the water’s edge before striking and use their incredible strength to drag them into the water

Brave: Tara with 'Big Al', her friend and the man who tackled a vicious crocodile with his bare hands to save her lifeBrave: Tara with ‘Big Al’, her friend and the man who tackled a vicious crocodile with his bare hands to save her life

Tara’s friend and colleague, Al Sartori, was watching on from the shore and thought Tara was playing an April Fools prank.

However, the 35-year-old, who had checked the 3x5m pool for danger beforehand, soon realised it was no joke when Tara continued to scream and the water filled with blood.

Al, who is known as Big Al, stepped in to help Tara and with the help of bystander, Mike Fletcher, wrestled the giant three-metre crocodile.

Al prised open its colossal jaws until Tara was eventually freed.

Rescue: Tara tied a t-shirt around her wound and was airlifted to hospital on the luxury vessel's helicopter

He said: ‘It was April Fools day and for a moment I thought Tara was winding us up.

‘However soon I saw the crocodile on top of her. I jumped into the water and on to its back and stuck my thumbs into its eyes until I felt it start to slacken off.

‘Tara was bleeding pretty heavily. I picked up the croc and chucked it back into the water and it came back at me. It was pretty heavy.

‘I wouldn’t ever want to do it again. I’m just glad I took the chance to try and save her.’

Brave: Tara suffers panic attacks but recently came face-to-face with a croc to confront her fears and made her peace with the animalsBrave: Tara suffers panic attacks from her ordeal but recently came face-to-face with a croc to confront her fears and made her peace with the reptiles

Tara added: ‘It was a massive crocodile and Alan had his fingers in its mouth, trying to open it.

‘But crocodiles have lockjaw and even if you’re the strongest man in the world you could not pull a crocodile’s mouth apart.

‘My leg was in the air and I was punching the croc on the nose but I was powerless to do anything.

‘I looked at Alan and realised my life was in his hands and there was nothing I could do but stay strong.’

After realising the true horror of what was happening, videographer Mike Fletcher jumped into the pool and held Tara’s head above water just as the crocodile prepared for a death roll.

Tara said: ‘Al stuck his thumbs back deeper into its eyes and it released its grip a little bit and I managed to get my leg out with the help of Mike.

‘I looked at my leg and it had been ripped to pieces. I thought I had a chance of losing my leg at that stage.’

Tara bravely wrapped a t-shirt and some towels around her mangled leg to try and suppress the bleeding.

Alan and Mike then put Tara in a dinghy and they sped back to True North where the crew were waiting anxiously.

Tara was airlifted to a hospital where surgeons spent the next four hours desperately trying to piece her leg back together.

Both Big Al and Mark have since won awards for their selfless acts from the Royal Life Saving Society’s Western Power Bravery Awards.

Meanwhile, despite still suffering panic attacks, Tara has made a miraculous recovery after undergoing seven months of intense physiotherapy and treatment for Post Traumatic Stress.

Brave Tara even recently visited crew on True North and confronted her fears at a wildlife park where she came face-to-face with a crocodile.

She said: ‘Seeing that croc I thought it was actually a beautiful creature. I wanted to pat him.

‘I owe Al my life. I don’t know how to thank him enough.

‘I still think I must have had someone looking over me that day, my pop or my nanna or someone close to me who was looking after me.

‘But maybe that’s just the way life is and I was just the luckiest girl in the world.’

Mr Peter Carstairs, from Western Australia’s Department of the Environment and Conservation, said Miss Hawkes was taking a swim in a fresh water pool in an area known for crocodiles.

‘It was not far from the salt water area and as she was exiting the water she was grabbed by a crocodile,’ said Mr Carstairs.

‘She received lacerations and puncture wounds from the attack.’ He said the crocodile was still in the area and he urged others not to swim there.

‘That area’s very well known for crocodiles, so I think removing people from the environment instead of removing the crocodile from the environment sounds like a good idea.’

November 23, 2012              12:00AM

THE world’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, has warned Australia risks becoming another “Greece, Spain or Portugal” unless it cuts government debt and lifts its competitiveness.

Mrs Rinehart, who chairs Hancock Prospecting, says there are “too many heads buried in the sand” regarding bloated government spending and policies she claims are anti-business.

The mining billionaire says investors who are critical to the nation’s welfare are “discouraged by bad policies, even hated”.

She was speaking as she launched her first book, Northern Australia and Then Some: Changes We Need to Make Our Country Rich at a private Brisbane function yesterday.

“We need to earn revenue before we can spend it, we need to focus more on the earning, not just the spending, and for this we need to have a good environment to make investment welcome,” Mrs Rinehart said.

The book – which will have its Melbourne launch today – promises to give readers “a comprehensive insight” into her “thoughts about national prosperity and an intimate glimpse of the life and times of this prominent Australian”.

Calling on northern Australia to be turned into a foodbowl for Asia, Mrs Rinehart said the “Pilbara mulberries” grown at her homestead were the best in the world.

In September, she garnered international media attention by warning Australia was too expensive and Africa was a cheaper investment option, with workers willing to take jobs for less than $2 a day.

09:44 EST             24 October 2012

A Brazilian student is set to sell her virginity for a staggering $780,000 after she put it up for auction online.

A man called Natsu, from Japan, fended off strong competition from American bidders Jack Miller and Jack Right, and Indian big-spender Rudra Chatterjee, to secure a date with 20-year-old Catarina Migliorini.

The auction closed this morning, and the physical education student – who said she will use the cash to build homes for poverty-stricken families – was the subject of 15 bids.

Catarina’s move sparked outrage across the globe, with many claiming she was little more than a prostitute.

She also caused controversy when she revealed she would be followed every step of the way by an Australian crew for a documentary film called Virgins Wanted.

But she said: ‘I saw this as a business. I have the opportunity to travel, to be part of a movie and get a bonus with it.

‘If you only do it once in your life then you are not a prostitute, just like if you take one amazing photograph it does not automatically make you a photographer.

‘The auction is just business, I’m a romantic girl at heart and believe in love. But this will make a big difference to my area,’  she told Folha newspaper.

Catarina will be ‘delivered’ to her buyer on board a plane between Australia and the U.S. – being interviewed before and after the sexual act.

The intercourse itself will not be filmed and Natsu will retain a right to be anonymous, without his picture appearing in the media.

Pure profit: Miss Migliorini vehemently denied being a prostitute on the basis she was only selling her body the one time

Sex toys will be banned from use and a condom will be compulsory, with Catarina saying she was prepared to prove to any sceptics that she has not had sex before.

Natsu will be tested for sexually transmitted diseases prior to the encounter.

A male virgin called Alexander, who is also being followed as part of director Justin Selsey’s documentary, sold for $3,000 to a Brazilian woman called Nene B.

Catarina previously said she wanted to plough the money – $20,000 and 90 per cent of the final auction sale price – into a non-governmental organisation which will construct modern houses in her southern home state of Santa Catarina.

She signed up to the project two years ago when she saw an advert by Thomas Williams Productions looking for a virgin to film.

October 21, 2012                8:01 am

It may sound positively monotonous after a 23 year journey littered with milestones, but Sachin Tendulkar is on the verge of yet another record. And this, yet again, has to do with centuries.

In international cricket Tendulkar is already far ahead of any other man in the history of the game in terms of centuries. He stands head and shoulders above the rest in Test cricket, and, at least waist above in One-Day Internationals. By a simple corollary, the total number of international hundreds also belongs to him – and this total reached a century of its own after a prolonged wait.

However, as the master batsman walks back into the long neglected arena of Ranji Trophy, he finds himself just three short of the national record for the highest number of First-class centuries. Sunil Gavaskar finished his illustrious career with 81 from 348 matches. Tendulkar’s tally currently reads 78 from 294 outings.

 

The English monopoly

 

The record for First-class cricket centuries has traditionally been an English monopoly. With the gamut of county cricket that used to be played, it is hardly surprising that most of the leaders on the all time list are from England.

Jack Hobbs heads the pack with a mindboggling 199 hundreds from as many 834 matches! WG Grace got 124 in 870.  The county season saw numerous teams take on each other more than once every year till not long back.

Hence, among the 25 batsmen who managed a century of First-class centuries, 21 are English. Of the four others, Viv Richards, Zaheer Abbas and Glenn Turner spent a large part of their careers in the county circuit, playing 507, 459 and 455 First-class matches in their respective careers.

Of course, the one remaining batsman in the list got there because of a rather incurable habit of scoring hundreds. The great Don Bradman managed 117 in his career, in just 295 matches.

 

The great Indian batting leaders

 

Among the Indians, who play distinctly less First-class cricket than those engaged in the county game, there are seven who have scored more than 50 hundreds.

Unsurprisingly, these seven names would be on most lists of great Indian batsmen.

VVS Laxman 265 433 19520 51.5 54 97 8.02 2.87

 
As mentioned, Tendulkar is just three away from Gavaskar’s record, and has played 54 matches less than the original Little Master.

A closer scrutiny of the numbers reveals further differentiators between him and the other men on the list.

In spite of spending most of his career away from the vastly easier arena of First-class cricket, more often engaged in battling the more lethal bowlers of Test cricket, Tendulkar is still ahead in a number of areas.

A monstrous 65.38% of his 78 First-class hundreds have come in Test matches.

And even though he has played far less non-Test First-class matches than the other Indian batsmen in the list, Tendulkar still ends up being way more frequent in scoring centuries (one in every 5.99 First-class innings) and fifties (one in every 2.47 First-class innings).

These are further signs of his unwavering quality and consistency at the highest level.

Fifteen-year-old Lydia Ko holds up the trophy after winning the Canadian Women's Open LPGA  tournament.

August 27, 2012

Lydia Ko, a 15-year-old South Korean-born New Zealander, won the Canadian Women’s Open on Sunday in Coquitlam, British Columbia, to become the youngest winner on the L.P.G.A. Tour and the fifth amateur champion. Ko closed with a five-under-par 67 for a three-stroke win at 13-under 275. She broke the age record of 16 set by Lexi Thompson last September and is the first amateur winner since JoAnne Carner in 1969.

In January, at 14, Ko won the New South Wales Open, an event on the Australian L.P.G.A. tour. She also won the United States Women’s Amateur two weeks ago.

<article>Collins, finishing up his fourth year as NBC’s Olympic basketball analyst, said he believes the U.S. Dream Team from the 1992 Barcelona Games would beat the current United States team in a hypothetical matchup. The 1992 team’s front line is too imposing, he said.</p>
</article>
</div>
<div id=

With each sport having different rules concerning amateurism, Olympians return to varied lifestyles.

The more important matter at hand for the U.S. team is the gold-medal game Sunday against Spain. Spain has a solid front line, too, but will succeed or fail on the strength of its guard play, Collins said.

The Americans are “close to where they want to be, but all of the pressure is on them to win the gold medal,” he said. “Otherwise, it’s going to be a failure for them. They know that. It’s gold or bust for them.”

Collins is happy for a day off between games because his day job keeps him pretty busy. The current Philadelphia 76ers head coach has watched from London as the 76ers participated in a four-team megadeal that landed Andrew Bynum from the L.A. Lakers while sending Andre Iguodala to Denver.

Michael Jordan once said that participating on the Dream Team helped him learn some weaknesses of his All-Star teammates, things that he could exploit in later games. Collins said he knows the current players pretty well. The advantage to his analyst’s job comes in getting to know some of the international players, and evaluate whether they could play in the NBA.

Being a current coach also brings him fresh material for his analyst’s role.

“A big part of the Olympics is being able to story tell and to make it personal,” he said, “so you know these guys by more than just their numbers.”

The strength of the U.S. team this year is its versatility, with so many players able to operate all over the court. The team has proven to be explosive offensively when the 3-point shots are falling. Collins said he always believed the team’s supposed weakness in the front court was overstated since the U.S. has steadily outrebounded foes.

Wednesday August 1, 2012              6:25pm EDT

Hungary’s Daniel Gyurta was third-time lucky on Wednesday as he powered to gold in the 200 meters breaststroke, breaking a world record and denying host-nation Britain their first male swimming gold in almost a quarter of a century.

Propelled by a deafening roar inside London’s Aquatics Centre, Gyurta held on to beat Briton Michael Jamieson in a desperate finish, to win in a time of two minutes, 07.28 seconds.

Scotland’s Jamieson was just 0.15 seconds behind, after almost drawing level with Gyurta approaching the wall. Japan’s Ryo Tateishi, swimming in the outside lane, was third.

Three-time Olympian Gyurta had won silver in the 200 in Athens in 2004 at just 15, but then slipped to fifth in Beijing.

He has since bounced back with a storming four years, winning the last two European and two world championships.

“I managed to prove to everyone and to myself after those devastating two years after the 2004 Olympic Games that I could bounce back, and do what I dreamed of since my childhood,” said the visibly elated 23-year-old. “It is the biggest achievement of my life.”

In a race that pitted some of the greatest names in the stroke against newer arrivals, Gyurta shaved 0.03 off the record set by Australia’s Christian Sprenger at the 2009 world championships, when the now-banned bodysuits were still allowed.

Gyurta, his competitors said, had been the top challenger.

“His last 50 meters are consistently the fastest in the world,” Britain’s Jamieson said. “He’s been the man to beat over the last few years.”

The race did not go to plan, however, for the breaststroke veterans competing for a spot on the podium.

Australia’s Brenton Rickard finished seventh, while Japan’s Kosuke Kitajima ended almost a decade-long dominance of the stroke, missing out on his last crack at winning a fifth gold medal and on the elusive feat of becoming the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at three Olympics.

Kitajima, hugely popular in Japan, has dominated breaststroke since the 2003 world championships in Barcelona. He went on to win the breaststroke double at Athens in 2004 and Beijing four years later.

In London he had been locked in a race with Michael Phelps to become the first male swimmer to do the three-peat.

When Phelps failed to win a medal in the 400 medley on Saturday, Kitajima got the opportunity to become the first, but he missed the podium altogether in his own first event, the 100 breaststroke, only to miss it again in his second.

Phelps has two more opportunities this week, with the 100 fly and the 200 individual medley.

“I swam my own race,” Kitajima said. “I have no regrets.”

Alicia Coutts, Cate Campbell, Brittanie Elmslie and Melanie Schlanger of the Women’s 100 Metre Freestyle relay team after winning gold in London.

 

July 29, 2012

It became a bit of a running joke in Manchester last week at the Australian team camp. Because there were a number of fresh-faced rookies, whenever an unfamiliar one wandered past the gathered media, the question was asked: “Is that Brittany Elmslie?” Today, we all know who Brittany Elmslie is.

Mum has always been a big influence on my life. She always supported me even when I was at rock bottom. She was just there when I really needed her, she was not pushy, and back when I wanted to quick swimming and I’d had enough

The 18-year-old will be anonymous no more. She is now one of Australia’s first Olympic gold medal winners in London, along with her fellow 4x100m freestyle relay members, Melanie Schlanger, Alicia Coutts and Cate Campbell, the quartet kickstarting the nation’s medal success in the pool, and at the 2012 Games.

Elmslie helped put the team in lane four for the final with a brilliant heat swim on Saturday morning, and soon after the coaches met and decided they could trust her with the swim in the final, despite her inexperience. She joined the other trio who had all been rested for the final, and Elmslie didn’t disappoint anyone.

“The heat swim this morning was one of the best races I have done in my career and it paid off and they put me in the final,” she said. “I just wanted to do Australia proud and I think I achieved that.”

Elmslie revealed that it was only a month before the selection trials in March that she started giving herself some sort of chance of making the team. Before that she was “not in with a chance”. But hard work from both her and her coach Matt Brown helped lift her from “rock bottom” to Olympic gold medallist.

“I was just not liking swimming any more, and I really had to find the love of it again,” Elmslie said of being at rock bottom. “I just needed a new, fresh start and I moved from Noosa [to Brown in Brisbane] and decided to go train with Emily [Seebohm] because she was such an inspiration to me, and it’s just been the best for my swimming.

“The whole family deserve this [the gold medal] as much as me as they have sacrificed so much for me, especially moving to Brisbane in February last year.

“Mum has always been a big influence on my life. She always supported me even when I was at rock bottom. She was just there when I really needed her, she was not pushy, and back when I wanted to quick swimming and I’d had enough, she said: “If you want to quit, it’s up to you, you have to love the sport. She was right.”

Elmslie isn’t the only one who could so easily have not been there on Saturday night, and who could have so easily been already out of the sport.

Schlanger, who did a sensational job holding off the fastest woman in the world, Dutchwoman Ranomi Kromowidjojo, over the final 100m, was not even swimming 18 months ago.

“After Beijing I had a few months off, had a bit of a holiday and then came back to try and get back into swimming, but was hit with sickness all the time and was up and down all the time,” Schlanger explained. “It was only 18 months ago that I wasn’t even in the pool at all, so to be standing here today is incredible.

“When I stopped [swimming] I never believed I would get back in the pool at all. I guess the time off really helped me a lot. It’s changed my perspective on swimming and on life … definitely for the better.”

Asked if she considered a gold medal at the Olympics when she made her return, Schlanger replied: “It was not in the picture. My dream was just to make this team and even just in a relay, so to come from trials and win that event (100m freestyle) and get an individual swim (in the 100m freestyle) and then to get a strong enough team together to be able to produce this result … I am speechless.

“It feels surreal. We came together as a team today and it’s really rare in relays to get four girls firing at the one time. The stars have to be aligned.”

Alicia Coutts, Cate Campbell, Brittanie Elmslie and Melanie Schlanger of the Women’s 100 Metre Freestyle relay team after winning gold in London.

 

July 29, 2012

It became a bit of a running joke in Manchester last week at the Australian team camp. Because there were a number of fresh-faced rookies, whenever an unfamiliar one wandered past the gathered media, the question was asked: “Is that Brittany Elmslie?” Today, we all know who Brittany Elmslie is.

Mum has always been a big influence on my life. She always supported me even when I was at rock bottom. She was just there when I really needed her, she was not pushy, and back when I wanted to quick swimming and I’d had enough

The 18-year-old will be anonymous no more. She is now one of Australia’s first Olympic gold medal winners in London, along with her fellow 4x100m freestyle relay members, Melanie Schlanger, Alicia Coutts and Cate Campbell, the quartet kickstarting the nation’s medal success in the pool, and at the 2012 Games.

Elmslie helped put the team in lane four for the final with a brilliant heat swim on Saturday morning, and soon after the coaches met and decided they could trust her with the swim in the final, despite her inexperience. She joined the other trio who had all been rested for the final, and Elmslie didn’t disappoint anyone.

“The heat swim this morning was one of the best races I have done in my career and it paid off and they put me in the final,” she said. “I just wanted to do Australia proud and I think I achieved that.”

Elmslie revealed that it was only a month before the selection trials in March that she started giving herself some sort of chance of making the team. Before that she was “not in with a chance”. But hard work from both her and her coach Matt Brown helped lift her from “rock bottom” to Olympic gold medallist.

“I was just not liking swimming any more, and I really had to find the love of it again,” Elmslie said of being at rock bottom. “I just needed a new, fresh start and I moved from Noosa [to Brown in Brisbane] and decided to go train with Emily [Seebohm] because she was such an inspiration to me, and it’s just been the best for my swimming.

“The whole family deserve this [the gold medal] as much as me as they have sacrificed so much for me, especially moving to Brisbane in February last year.

“Mum has always been a big influence on my life. She always supported me even when I was at rock bottom. She was just there when I really needed her, she was not pushy, and back when I wanted to quick swimming and I’d had enough, she said: “If you want to quit, it’s up to you, you have to love the sport. She was right.”

Elmslie isn’t the only one who could so easily have not been there on Saturday night, and who could have so easily been already out of the sport.

Schlanger, who did a sensational job holding off the fastest woman in the world, Dutchwoman Ranomi Kromowidjojo, over the final 100m, was not even swimming 18 months ago.

“After Beijing I had a few months off, had a bit of a holiday and then came back to try and get back into swimming, but was hit with sickness all the time and was up and down all the time,” Schlanger explained. “It was only 18 months ago that I wasn’t even in the pool at all, so to be standing here today is incredible.

Ruta Meilutyte of Lithuania reacts as she receives her gold medal

30 July 2012                     19:45 GMT

Teenager Ruta Meilutyte wins shock 100m breaststroke gold

Teenager Ruta Meilutyte won Lithuania’s first ever Olympic gold in the swimming pool by beating American Rebecca Soni in the women’s 100m breaststroke.

The 15-year-old, who trains and goes to school in Plymouth, led from the start in the final, holding on to beat the fast-finishing Soni by 0.08 seconds.

Japan’s Satomi Suzuki earned bronze, while Australia’s defending champion Leisel Jones finished fifth.

“I can’t believe it,” Meilutyte told BBC Sport. “It’s too much for me.”

from:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/olympics/18906960

———————————————————————————————

There will, after all, be an Olympic gold medal to be celebrated by the staff and pupils of Plymouth College. Just hours after Tom Daley, the school’s most famous graduate, failed to claim a medal, Ruta Meilutyte produced the third of three astonishing swims spread over the course of two days to claim gold for Lithuania at the age of 15.

On an unrewarding night for Britain – Liam Tancock, the sole medal hope, faded to finish fifth in the 100m backstroke – the home support were able to claim a victory of sorts in the 100m breaststroke through Meilutyte. She has already been asked about switching allegiance and firmly declined.

Like Daley before her, Meilutyte is on a scholarship at the private school and trains at the same facility in Plymouth, but unlike the poster boy of Team GB she did not arrive in London with any great expectation resting on her young shoulders. Her coach, Jon Rudd, said they would have settled for a personal best and a place in the final. He got both.

It is the second astonishing teenage victory to come in the first three nights in the pool, but in many ways hers is even more remarkable a performance than that of Ye Shiwen, the 16-year-old Chinese who shattered the world record in the 400m individual medley and set a new Olympic mark in the 200m individual medley last night.

Meilutyte, the only female in the Lithuanian swim team, is ranked No 1 in the world in her age group but coming into the Olympics had managed to record only the 14th best time in the world this year. She has now recorded the fastest.

Whereas the raucous atmosphere inside the Aquatics Centre seems to have overawed some of the British swimmers, Meilutyte has thrived. From the moment she touched the water in her heat on Sunday morning she has dominated the event.

She began with a personal best and then in that night’s semi-finals she broke the European record to advance to the final as quickest qualifier.

The rest of the swimming world was all too aware of her by the time she stepped out of the call room last night, clad in her dark green swim hat with the Lithuanian flag on one side. She appeared nerveless; she was unaffected by a false start from Breeja Larson, the American two lanes down, and also unbothered by the few minutes’ wait that followed as the starting mechanism was reset.

Coming down the final 50m she opened up her lead and then held on as Rebecca Soni responded over the closing 15m. She touched 0.08sec quicker than the Beijing gold medallist, hauled herself out of the water and perched on the lane divider waving ecstatically to the crowd.

Meilutyte, whose mother died in a car accident when she was four, arrived in Britain two years ago. Her father had come to Plymouth to work as a carer, seen the facilities at the Leander club in the city and suggested she join him. “It will be good for your swimming,” he informed her.

Her progress under Rudd, who has a stable of impressive young swimmers, has been meteoric. She was understandably taken aback. “It’s too much for me,” she said. “I really can’t say anything. It was hard and difficult. At the moment I can’t speak too much. But it means a lot to me and I’m so proud.” Tears followed on the podium.

The best two British swims of the night came from women too. Caitlin McClatchey and Hannah Miley making finals in the 200m freestyle and the 200m individual medley relay respectively. McClatchey, at her third Olympics, produced her best swim since Beijing, setting the pace in a high-class field for the second semi-final. She led at the final turn, only for Federica Pellegrini to edge past but McClatchey held on to second to finish ahead of Missy Franklin.

The two men in action, Tancock and Robbie Renwick, were both in finals but neither troubled the podium. Renwick will be the more satisfied with his sixth place in the 200m freestyle final amid some stellar performers. It marked an improvement of two places on Beijing.

For Tancock, McClatchey’s partner, it was one better than in 2008 but represents another frustrating failure to transform his dominance over 50m into the 100m. He swum his first world championships in 2005 and it is at world level where his success has come. The 50m backstroke, at which he excels as the world record holder, is not an Olympic event.

Gemma Spofforth completed the last individual race of her career with a creditable fifth in the 100m backstroke behind Missy Franklin. Spofforth will retire after the Games and plans to attempt to climb Everest. She will probably discover Meilutyte waiting for her.

03:34 EST               29 July 2012

A paedophile who tricked under aged girls into performing sexual acts on their webcams befriended the teens online by posing as Justin Bieber and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

Simon Hale then persuaded the girls from Britain, Australia and Denmark into posing naked or topless for him as well as blackmailing teen Bieber and 1D fans into performing sexual acts on Skype.

The 37-year-old was jailed for a minimum of ten years and the judge branded him so dangerous he may never be freed.

Both Justin Bieber and Niall Horan have been informed of the case and were both ‘horrified and appalled’ at the way their identities had been used by Hale.

He tricked the underage girls into believing they would be able to talk to Justin Bieber and 1D’s Horan through a chat-room style website – although the recipient of their messages was in fact Hale, Plymouth Crown Court heard.

He then used sophisticated software to take over the young girls’ computers after which he recorded and blackmailed some of them into committing on-camera sex acts for his own perverted sexual gratification.

When police tracked him down they found 35 Skype accounts and more than 180 homemade videos, mostly of young girls.

Nearly 90 of these show the girls them performing various sex acts.

Police identified ten out of 33 girls with whom Hale has struck up online relationships.

The court heart how Hale blackmailed one 13-year-old Bieber fan to strip naked and commit simulated sex acts with her six-year-old cousin.

Another girl was made to commit sexual acts with her four-year-old brother and other girls were made to touch themselves intimately.

All girls were underage and between 13 and 15.

Niall Horan from the boy band One Direction
Singer Justin Bieber

False identity: The man pretended to be teen heartthrobs Niall Horan from boyband One Direction and Canadian singer Justin Bieber

Hale admitted ten counts of causing or inciting children to comment indecent acts and 12 charges of making, possessing or distributing images of those children.

Prosecutor David Gittins told the court that Hale had a previous conviction for grooming a girl on the internet, meeting her and having intercourse with her twice.

He was jailed for five years in 2005.

Judge Paul Darlow said: ‘By pretending to be someone you knew girls would idolise, you inveigled your way into their confidence in several cases spawned an infatuation with you.’

He said Hale’s actions were ‘sinister and premeditated’ and warned he will remain a risk to the public in the future.

Hale was sentenced to an indeterminate jail term for public protection with a minimum of ten years behind bars but warned he may stay in prison.

Detective Inspector Simon Snell, of Devon and Cornwall Police, who leads the cyber-crime team, said: ‘The abuse of Hale’s victims was horrific.

‘He is a very dangerous and sadistic man, with him it’s about control and sexual gratification.’

July 20, 2012             8:36AM

LOOK out Sally Pearson – there is another Aussie hurdler stealing your spotlight and she likes to flaunt it.

Emerging 19-year-old Michelle Jenneke, who hails from Sydney, has become worldwide internet sensation after some very interesting dance moves at last weekend’s Barcelona World Junior Championships.

While she completely dominated her women’s 100-metre hurdle event, it’s Jenneke’s sexy warm-up dance – which included wiggling her hips and shimmying – that’s made her famous around the Web.

The footage has gone viral and has become a YouTube sensation – with the most popular video one of her moving to a catchy dance tune.

It has gone everywhere, even USA Today - which described the footage as “unique way of stretching.”

Sadly, Jenneke – who comes from Kenthurst in Sydney’s northwest and attended The Hills Grammar School – failed to qualify for the London Games.

In an old interview, the teenager – who has a hurdling PB of 13.39 – describes her hobbies as soccer, AFL and handball.

She also loves hanging out with her friends, tree climbing and taking care of her several pet dogs and cats.

As far back as she can remember, she has had a passion for hurdling, even lining up teddy bears for jumping practice at her parent’s home when she was very young.

Tuesday June 26, 2012                     3:53 PM EDT

Swimmer Stephanie Rice, who swims for a living while wearing a swimsuit in a swimming pool, is catching flak in her native Australia for tweeting a picture of herself in a swimsuit. The nerve of some people.

The three-time gold medalist took the shot of herself wearing a birthday gift from designer Ellie Gonsalves and posted it on Twitter. It made figurative waves one month before she defends her Olympic titles in both individual medleys.

Some Twitter commenters thought it was another disgrace to an Australian swim team that’s recently dealt with a gun controversy. There was also concern that Rice’s sponsor, Speedo, would be upset by the photo because — I don’t know — they don’t like free publicity? But, rest assured, Rice isn’t even with Speedo anymore!

Oh, how you disappointment me my Aussie friends. I can see how this would be a big deal in America, what with our Puritanical sensibilities and penchant for affected moral outrage. But in Australia? The land founded as a penal colony where everyone’s laid back, even when comparing the size of their knives? She’s a swimmer in a swimsuit! That’s like getting upset at Michael Phelps for walking around shirtless. Plus, isn’t it like 115 degrees during Melbourne summers? I just assumed everyone walked around like this.

My theory: This controversy was ginned up so papers in Australia had a legitimate reason to run the photo. For shame, y’all. We’d never stoop so low in the United States.

The current 400 IM world-record holder has been in trouble before for tweeting racy pictures. A few years ago, she posted this picture of herself dressed as a police woman.

Despite the absurdity over the uproar, Stephanie isn’t necessarily in the right. Doesn’t she know the rule about taking racy photos of yourself in the mirror and sending them over social networks? Angle the phone to the right so the flash doesn’t obscure your face! Or don’t take them. Yeah, that’s what I’m probably supposed to say there.

30 June 2012                 21:22 ET

Australia has introduced its highly controversial carbon tax, after years of bitter political wrangling.

The law forces the country’s 300 worst-polluting firms to pay a AU$23 (£15; $24) levy for every tonne of greenhouse gases they produce.

The government says the tax is needed to meet climate-change obligations of Australia – the highest emitter per-head in the developed world.

But the opposition calls it a “toxic tax”, which will cost jobs.

The opposition also argues that the tax will raise the cost of living, promising to repeal the legislation if it wins the next election, due in 2013.

Environmentalists have broadly backed the scheme, but there have been large public protests against it.

‘Realistic way’

Australia’s mining firms, airlines, steel makers and energy firms are among those expected to be hardest hit by the the Clean Energy Act.

Continue reading the main story

CARBON TAX

  • 300 companies affected
  • Agriculture, forestry and land are exempt
  • Market-based trading scheme kicks in from 2015
  • Target to cut 159m tonnes of CO2 by 2020

Domestic fuel bills are expected to rise as companies pass on the costs to consumers.

But the government of Prime Minister Julia Gillard says it is the only realistic way of meeting Australia’s climate-change obligations.

It also hopes that the legislation will force innovation in renewable energy supplies, and free the country from its reliance on fossil fuels.

Australia currently accounts for 1.5% of the world’s emissions, but it is the developed world’s highest emitter per head of population thanks to its relatively small population.

The leader of the opposition, Tony Abbott, says the “toxic” tax is expensive and will not affect climate change.

Australia’s initial price per tonne of carbon is much higher than other similar schemes – such as in the EU where the price is between $8.7 and $12.6 a tonne.

Taylor and Michael Hale were less than a mile from the hospital, but baby Chloe couldn’t wait: The new mom delivered her own baby in the car on the way to the Banner Gateway Medical Center in Gilbert, Ariz.

In the time it took her husband to call 911 from the car, Taylor Hale had delivered the baby.

“The baby’s out!” she exclaimed as her husband spoke to the 911 operator.

She estimated less than five minutes had passed between the time she left her house and when she gave birth.

“I said to the dispatch, ‘The head’s out,’ and he said, ‘Pull over,’”  Michael Hale told ABC News affiliate KNXV-TV. “In the time it took for me to stop and pull over, I look over and my wife is holding our baby.”

“I was in the front seat and I just put my legs up and I pushed her out while we were driving,” Taylor Hale said.

After a few long seconds of silence, the parents were relieved to hear their baby crying.

“Congratulations, dad,” the operator said.

Susan Gordon, public relations director at Banner Gateway Medical Center, said that both mother and daughter are healthy and doing fine.

June 18, 2012              11:33am

An appeals court has ordered an Australian woman to fork over $10,000 after she sent a disparaging email calling her then-supervisor “dishonest” and other colorful things.

Tracy Adams was ordered to pay the five- figure sum in damages to her former boss, Alan Bristow, after sending an email attacking him for “lying, laziness and theft” and calling his character into question by labeling him “untrustworthy and cunning by nature,” according to the News.com.au.

In the emailed obtained by News.com.au, Adams wrote, ”I have been absolutely guttered (sic) by your most recent attempts to bully me into leaving, and have decided to do so of my own accord.”

She continued in the email sent to Human Resources and other employees, “I can’t understand why Total Fasteners would choose to loose (sic) a competent and reliable employee, to keep a so-called manager of questionable and dishonest character.”

According to the website, the two worked together in the New South Wales Hunter region offices. After the email was sent around, Bristow said he felt nauseated and depressed, according to News.com.au.

While a judge believed the email was defamatory, the first lawsuit was thrown out of court. The two would battle it out in court for years as Bristow sought to prove that his reputation was damaged by the email. In May, the Court of  Appeal New South Wales found email was “clearly defamatory of the appellant” and ordered Adams to pay.

Lindy Chamberlain and baby Azaria pictured shortly before her disappearance in 1980

22:11 EST              11 June 2012

After more than three decades of controversy a coroner in Australia found today that baby Azaria Chamberlain, who vanished from her family’s tent on a camping holiday 32 years ago, was taken by a dingo.

The case, which saw Azaria’s mother Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton serve six years for her murder before being acquitted, has divided a nation, prompting massive speculation over what really happened on the night of August 17, 1980.

Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton and her then husband Michael Chamberlain have always maintained that a wild dog took their baby during the family camping trip to Ayers Rock.

Ruling: Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton was sentenced to life for murdering her baby Azaria 32 years ago. Today a coroner in Australia ruled that the youngster was taken by a dingoRuling: Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton was sentenced to life for murdering her baby Azaria 32 years ago. Today a coroner in Australia ruled that the youngster was taken by a dingo

Azaria’s body was never found despite intensive searches by police, Aboriginal trackers and park rangers, but her clothing was later found beside a dingo’s lair at the base of the rock.

Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton and Mr Chamberlain, who was given a suspended sentence for being an accessory after the fact were both exonerated after a royal commission in 1987.

Today’s dramatic ruling, during what was the fourth inquest into Azaria’s death, finally puts to rest the doubts that have existed over the case. It came just one day after Azaria would have celebrated her 32nd birthday.

Northern Territory coroner Miss Elizabeth Morris said that after considering all the evidence from earlier inquests and inquiries she concluded a dingo entered the family tent and dragged Azaria away.

The coroner fought back tears as she extended her sympathies to Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton, as she is now known, and her former husband Michael Chamberlain, who were present in the courtroom in Darwin.

Miss Morris said the cause of Azaria’s death was as the result of ‘her being attacked and taken by a dingo.’

She said it was clear that not just from her findings but from other evidence dingos could cause harm to humans.

It was beyond the scope of her inquest to examine the cause of the attack on Azaria, she said, and she did not intend to make any recommendations in respect of public safety.

But she said it was appropriate for wildlife authorities to look into the risks created by wild animals in areas attended by the public.

Turning to the Chamberlain couple and their three other children, Miss Morris’s voice broke and she struggled against tears as she told them.

‘Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of your special and loved daughter and sister.

‘I am so sorry for your loss.

‘Time does not remove the pain and sadness of the death of a child.’

She said a certificate of death would now be made available reflecting her findings that a dingo had taken Azaria.

Azaria’s previous death certificate had stated the cause of her death as ‘unknown’.

The new findings are now believed to be the final chapter in what has been one of Australia’s most enduring sagas.

Beauty spot: Azaria was snatched from her tent at campsite near Ayers Rock. Her clothing was later found beside a dingo's lair Beauty spot: Azaria was snatched from her tent at campsite near Ayers Rock. Her clothing was later found beside a dingo’s lair

Killer: Chamberlain had always blamed a dingo for her daughter's deathKiller: Chamberlain had always blamed a dingo for her daughter’s death

The drama had begun when the Chamberlain couple and Azaria, along with their two young sons Aidan and Reagan, travelled from their home in outback Queensland for a camping holiday at the popular beauty spot.

Mrs Chamberlain had placed Azaria in the tent, where Reagan was already sleeping, before she returned to a barbecue area where her husband was chatting to other campers.

It was then that someone asked if they had heard a baby cry.

Mrs Chamberlain returned to the tent – and moments later the silence of the night was broken by Mrs Chamberlain’s cry: ‘A dingo’s got my baby.’

She told other campers that she had seen a dingo leaving the tent – and there was no sign of Azaria.

A big search was started but there was no sign of the dingo nor the child.

But several days later the baby’s jumpsuit was found beside a dingo lair. There was no sign of the baby or any remains.

Sceptics said that it would have been impossible for a dingo to have killed and even eaten the child without leaving some remains.

There were also no signs of dingo saliva or hairs on the jumpsuit, but Mrs Chamberlain said that would have been because the baby was wearing a matinee jacket over the jumpsuit.

The matinee jacket was not found – until nearly four years into Mrs Chamberlain’s life sentence when it was dramatically discovered beside the body of Englishman David Brett who had fallen to his death while climbing Ayer’s Rock.

Authorities agreed Mrs Chamberlain had been telling the truth about the jacket and she was almost immediately released from prison.

Ordeal: Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton served six years for her murder before being acquitted in 1988. She had always claimed that a dingo killed their child.

She and her husband were later exonerated from involvement in the baby’s death.

Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton and her ex-husband – a former Seventh Day Adventist church pastor – were expected to comment later.

Standing outside the court building, Mrs Chamberlain-Creighton said:

‘We are delighted to come to the end of this saga…no longer will Australia be able to say that dingos are not dangerous.

‘We live in a beautiful country but it is dangerous and we would ask Australians to be aware of this and take precautions.’

Michael Chamberlain said: ‘Today I heard coroner Morris speak for the dead on behalf of the living.

‘This battle to get the legal truth about what caused Azaria’s death has taken too long. However I am here to tell you that you can get justice even when you think all is lost. But truth must be on your side.’

He added: ‘If you know you are right never give up on getting it right.’

An Alberta woman who drowned her two sons in February 2010 was sentenced to six years in custody on Monday.

Justice Michelle Crighton said Allyson McConnell must spend more time in custody for drowning Connor, 2, and 10-month-old Jayden in the bathtub of their Millet, Alta., home during a bitter divorce battle with her husband.

McConnell was convicted in April of manslaughter which carries a penalty anywhere from probation to life in prison.

Crown prosecutor Gordon Hatch wanted McConnell to serve 12 years in prison, with three years credit for the time served in a psychiatric hospital.

During the trial, he argued McConnell killed her boys at the family home as revenge against her husband, Curtis McConnell, who had refused permission to let her return to her native Australia with the boys.

But the defence said McConnell’s mind was so clouded by booze, sleeping pills and severe depression that she could not have formed the intent required to convict her of second-degree murder.

Lawyer Peter Royal believed she should not have to serve any more time in custody.

Royal hopes McConnell will be allowed to go back to Australia to serve any sentence the judge decides.

The Crown is appealing McConnell’s manslaughter conviction, believing McConnell should have been convicted of second-degree murder.

It believes Crighton erred in the analysis of expert evidence and in the consideration of whether McConnell could form the intent to kill her sons.

A ten-time Grand Prix Association Rider of the year, Margie Engle was not born with a silver riding crop in her hand. From the age of nine, she mucked stalls and did other odd jobs in exchange for riding lessons. Her tenacity served her well. At 54, Engle’s experience is definitely worthy of the title Olympian. In Australia, she helped her team win gold in the 2000 Olympic games. She returns to the games with a steely resolve.

Lizzie

May 07, 2012         11:21AM

ONE of WA’s top young hockey players has died after accidentally being hit in the head during a State League match at Curtin University.

The Australian hockey community is in shock following the tragic death of 24-year-old Lizzie Watkins in a freak accident during the match late yesterday.

The elite 24-year-old died from fatal head injuries after a ball deflected off her own stick and hit her in the back of the head during a game at Curtin University yesterday.

The young woman was a defender for North Coast Raiders and was part of the team playing the Victoria Park Panthers yesterday.

She fell to the ground unconscious when she was hit midway through the first half of the game.

Ms Watkins’ sister Catherine Carrol was playing alongside her and rushed to her side.

People at the scene attempted to revive Ms Watkins, who was breathing when an amulance arrived.

She died on the way to hospital.

Sad day for our sport – Hockey Australia

Hockey Australia Chief Executive Mark Anderson said Sunday was a very sad day for the sport.

“On behalf of the entire hockey community I would like to express our support and sympathies to the Watkins family at this very sad time. Our thoughts extend to all involved at the North Coast Raiders Hockey Club,” he said.

“Hockey is a sport that is known for its strong sense of community. I know that members of our two national teams and players involved at all levels of our sport are saddened by this tragic event.

“The Kookaburras wore black arm bands in the final of the London VISA International Invitational Hockey Tournament overnight at Olympic Park out of respect for Lizzie and her family.

”I know that our community both nationally and particularly in Western Australia will pull together to provide as much support as possible to all involved.”

Hockey WA are working closely with their community and the North Coast Raiders Hockey Club to ensure all possible support is provided to those involved in the accident.

Heartfelt tributes flow

Her team, The North Coast Raiders posted on their Facebook page: “Raiders has today lost a true Stalwart of the club. Lizzie Watkins was playing the game she loved and wore the Raiders colours with pride. She will be greatly missed. R.I.P. Lizzie”

Another friend posted this message: “You had one of the most amazing infectious smiles ever; your witty sense of humour, your presence would fill the room with joy. I have to keep pinching myself hoping this is a horrible nightmare that is just going to go away.

“The skills you taught me as a starting out at hockey player I will forever be grateful for. The memories I have of you Lizzie I will forever hold close to my heart. Your family is one of the most amazing families I have ever met and my heart is breaking for them all.

“You were taken so tragically from us all so soon. May you rest peacefully babe. Forever young!”
- by Heartbroken Friend

Hockey WA has launched an investigation.

Raiders president Craig Vallipuram said last night Ms Watkins was a great girl, and everyone was in deep shock.

“It was a terrible and tragic incident and one which has devastated everyone who knew her.”

Ms Watkins was a student at Murdoch University and completed her upper schooling at St Mary’s Anglican Girls School in Karrinyup.

In 2010 she opened Meg and Wally, a West Leederville fashion boutique with her sister.

Elite Aussie teams mourn shock death

News of Ms Watkins’ shock death swept through the Australian hockey scene, the Kookaburras squad hearing the news as they were preparing for the final of a test event against Germany in London.

They wore black armbands in the 2-5 loss.

The world’s number one player WA’s Jamie Dwyer, rested from the game but with the squad in London, tweeted: “All the Kookaburras thoughts are with the Watkins family after the devastating news today. Such a sad day in the hockey world.”

The Hockeyroos, who are in the middle of a training block in Perth, were saddened by the incident, many sharing their condolences.

“Thoughts and prayers are with the Watkins family and friends and with all the raiders girls, very sad day in the hockey community,” tweeted Hockeyroos star Casey Eastham.

Fellow Hockeyroo Anna Flanagan tweeted: “Lizzie Watkins, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Our heart goes out to your family at this terrible time.”

Kookaburras hockey player Glenn Turner tweeted his condolences to the family: ‘Thoughts and prayers go out to the Watkins family. RIP Lizzie’

World's oldest graduate Allan Stewart

4 May 2012          05:24 ET

An Australian man will break his own record as the world’s oldest graduate when he receives his masters degree at the age of 97, local media report.

Allan Stewart, who entered the Guinness World Records in 2006 when he completed a law degree at the age of 91, is graduating in clinical science from Southern Cross University.

This is his fourth degree after completing dentistry in 1936.

He went back to school in his 80s to keep himself mentally active.

Mr Stewart, who was born in 1915, has six children, 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchilden.

He worked as a dentist and earned his second degree in dental surgery.

He finished his third degree in law – typically six years – in less than five because he said that “time was of the essence and I better get a wriggle on in case I didn’t make my graduation”.

“I think I can hang up my mortar board and academic robes after this one – although I said that after my last degree and then I got bored,” Mr Stewart told Agence-France Presse news agency before his graduation ceremony late on Friday in the state of New South Wales.

Mr Stewart said people were never too old to study.

“It is never too late to expand your mind, make new friends and challenge yourself to achieve something worthwhile.”

A new and unusual land speed record has been set in Australia – for the fastest motorised toilet.

Canadian stuntwoman Jolene Van Vugt recorded a speed of 75km/h (46mph) in Sydney, beating the previous record by 7km/h.

“I flew into Australia yesterday and came out here to jump straight on the toilet,” she said. “That was so fun and I’m stoked to get the record.”

In order to win the title she was timed over 100m (330ft) in both directions.

There were some problems early on when the chain fell out but the toilet was soon repaired.

Jolene Van Vugt holds various world records for stunts on dirt bikes.

Gotye - Wally De Backer.

April 19, 2012

Where’s Wally? He’s at the top of the US Billboard chart, that’s where.

Gotye’s smash hit Somebody That I Used to Know continues to take the music world by storm, rocketing up to number one in the US charts overnight and recording one of the highest ever weekly digital sales totals in the country.

The song by the Mornington Peninsula-based singer/songwriter, real name Wally De Backer, jumped from number two to one in the all-important Billboard Hot 100 chart, after already claiming glory in 17 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Ireland and Denmark.

The 31-year-old is the first Australian artist to reign on the Billboard chart since Savage Garden topped it for four weeks in 2000 with I Knew I Loved You.

He is the first solo Australian to hit number one since Olivia Newton-John racked up 10 weeks at the top in 1981 with Physical. Rick Springfield was the last solo male Australian artist to reign with Jesse’s Girl 31 years ago.

Billboard said the song, a duet with New Zealand-born Kimbra, gained momentum in the US when it was covered on the hit television show Glee on April 10, while just days later Gotye (pronounced “gore-ti-yeah”) and Kimbra performed Somebody on NBC’s Saturday Night Live.

Hottest 100? Gotye's got it in oneTop of the world … Gotye and Kimbra in the Somebody That I Used to Know video clip that has racked up 166 million views on YouTube.

The track sold 542,000 downloads between April 9 and April 15 in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

That figure is the fourth highest since SoundScan began tracking digital sales in 2003.

In Glee, the break-up song was was transformed into a tune about sibling rivalry between characters Blaine Anderson, played by Darren Criss, and his older brother Cooper, played by Matt Bomer.

The song was also covered on the US version of the television talent contest The Voice, while Gotye performed at the US music festival Coachella last weekend and is set to play again this Sunday on the closing night of the two-weekend festival.

On the Billboard chart, Gotye dethroned US indie pop band Fun’s We Are Young, which slipped to number two.

Gotye tweeted news of his US success overnight with a link to the song’s official video on YouTube, which now has been viewed 166 million times.

The international success of Somebody That I Used To Know follows on from its extraordinary local achievements.

Released in Australia in July last year, the song stayed at the top of the chart for eight weeks, the longest running No.1 since Savage Garden’s Truly, Madly Deeply in 1997.

It went on to win Triple J’s Hottest 100 poll, as well as ARIA Awards for song of the year and best video, while Kimbra was voted best female artist and Gotye was named best male artist and producer of the year.

Somebody That I Used to Know is taken from Gotye’s third album, Making Mirrors, which he recorded entirely in his parent’s farm on the Mornington Peninsula.

Despite the song’s runaway success, Gotye said he nearly didn’t finish the song.

It was one of the final two songs that he penned for the album in November 2010, and Kimbra was not his first choice for the duet.

Another high-profile Australian female singer reportedly walked out in the middle of a recording session.

“At times I was thinking I wouldn’t be able to finish it, or that I wasn’t going to find a singer like Kimbra to really make the female part something special,” De Backer told The Age last year.

“But there was always something about the song that made me think, ’This one’s got something worth sticking it out for’.”
