Trump court pick denies sex assault claim

Posted by Comments off

Fighting to salvage his US Supreme Court nomination, Brett Kavanaugh has angrily and tearfully denied a university professor’s claim he sexually assaulted her 36 years ago.

He also complained about a “political hit” after she told a dramatic Senate hearing on Thursday she was “100 per cent certain” he did it.

Christine Blasey Ford appeared in public for the first time to detail her allegation against Kavanaugh, a conservative federal appeals court judge chosen by President Donald Trump for a lifetime job on the top US court.

Ford told the committee she feared Kavanaugh would rape and accidentally kill her during the alleged assault when both where high school students in Maryland.

“I swear today, under oath, before the Senate and the nation, before my family and God, I am innocent of this charge,” Kavanaugh told the Judiciary Committee.

Members of the Senate, controlled 51-49 by Trump’s fellow Republicans, must now decide whether to vote to confirm him after the nearly nine-hour hearing.

Calling himself a victim of “grotesque and obvious character assassination,” Kavanaugh, said he “unequivocally and categorically” denied Ford’s allegation.

Writing on Twitter after the hearing, Trump said of Kavanaugh, “His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist. The Senate must vote!”

Kavanaugh sharply attacked Democratic senators, calling himself the victim of “a calculated and orchestrated political hit”.

Ford, a psychology professor at Palo Alto University in California, said over four hours of testimony that a drunken Kavanaugh attacked her and tried to remove her clothing and rape her at a gathering of teenagers when he was 17 and she was 15 in 1982.

“With what degree of certainty do you believe Brett Kavanaugh assaulted you?” Democratic Senator Richard Durbin asked Ford.

“One hundred per cent,” she replied.

For his part, Kavanaugh testified he was “100 per cent certain” none of the alleged incidents of sexual misconduct occurred.

The panel’s Republican senators, all men, at first did not question her, assigning that task to Rachel Mitchell, a sex crimes prosecutor.

She took turns with the Democratic senators to ask questions in five-minute segments, disrupting her flow. During Kavanaugh’s testimony, Republican senators ditched Mitchell and asked their own questions.

Kavanaugh’s confirmation would cement conservative control of the high court as Trump moves to shift it and the broader federal judiciary to the right.

A handful of moderate Republican senators who have not announced whether or not they support Kavanaugh could determine his fate.

The committee could vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation on Friday, with a final Senate vote early next week.

Ford said Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge were “drunkenly laughing during the attack.”

She said Kavanaugh put his hand over her mouth to stop her from screaming, adding, “This was what terrified me the most, and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe, and I thought that Brett was accidentally going to kill me.”

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, have accused Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct in the 1980s.

Ramirez accused Kavanaugh of exposing himself during a drunken dormitory party during the 1983-84 academic year when both attended Yale University.

Swetnick said she witnessed efforts by Kavanaugh and others to get girls drunk at parties so they could be raped. She said Kavanaugh was present at a 1982 party where she was raped.

Francis Greenway parents ‘furious’ at principal ‘victim blaming’ of girls

Posted by Comments off

ANGRY: Francis Greenway students, from left, Nicola Walk, Melissa Duffield, Ashlie Duffield, Jemma Cheetham, Ashley Robson and Sufiya Walk. Picture MARINA NEIL FEMALE students at a Hunter high school have been told the length of their shorts is making male staff and students “uncomfortable” and puts staffin “potentially awkward situations”.

Parents have called for a change of leadership at Beresfield’sFrancis Greenway High, amid complaints about how principal Jo Edwards addressed an assembly ofyear seven to 11 girls on Tuesday about the school uniform.

TheNewcastle Heraldspoke to several students who said Ms Edwards told the girls the length of their shorts was making male staff and students feel uncomfortable, could lead to the girls being judged as promiscuous and may put them at risk of sexual assault.

Mother Sharon Robson said parents were “furious”.

“It’s victim blaming,” Ms Robson said.

“We don’t have a problem with the school wanting to enforce the uniform policy.

“But the whole way they’ve gone about it was wrong –making these children feel like every male is looking at them like they want to do something to them. It sexualises them.

“This is not appropriate for impressionable young teenagers.

“Some students already have low self esteem to start with and this is going to make it a hell of a lot worse.

“Short shorts are not a good look for the school and while some are too short, the majority wear the right length.”

Concerned: Ashley Robson with her mother Sharon, who said the principal “needs to be moved away from the school”. Picture: Marina Neil

Ms Edwards sent20 girls home with a letter asking them to wear more “appropriate” shorts.

She emailedtheir parents on Wednesday saying it was “not my intention to reflect on the character of students addressed earlier, and I apologise if my choice of words caused offence”.

She sent another email on Thursday, saying“my message may have led to some misrepresentation”.

A Department of Education spokesperson said the principal “reiterated the importance of students wearing the correct uniform according to the policy endorsed by the school community”.

“The consistent wearing of the approved uniform develops students’ sense of belonging and pride in the school and projects a positive image in the community.

“The uniform also supports student wellbeing, for practical reasons and in identifying students.”

The Herald understands some male teachers have told students they didnot feel uncomfortable about the girls’ shorts and rejected the suggestion they asked the principal to intervene.

Mother Narelle Giles said her son Cain and his friends were mortified.

“They feel just as bad, thinking ‘Do these girls think we’re going to do something to them?’” Ms Giles said.

The students said they wanted the principal to apologise to all students and staff.

Ms Robson’s daughter Ashley received one of the notes and said she felt “targeted” and “worthless”.

She didn’t go to school on Wednesday or Thursday.

“It’s unfair –I’d never really thought about my shorts before, but this makes me feel self conscious,” she said.

“We just want to feel comfortable in the clothes we wear.”

Sufiya Walk said she “felt awful that someone could be saying something like that without knowing our personalities or what we’re like” and didn’t like hearing “derogative”terms.

Nicola Walk said “girls should not be judged by what we wear”.

“When someone of your own gender does that –that’s what makes us feel more horrible,” she said.

“We feel anger, frustration –girls are worried what our male teachers and students are thinking.

“We should be feeling safe in school, not threatened. We’ve been treated like objects, not people.”

Ashlie Duffield said she felt “ashamed”, and that “we should be able to express ourselves”, while her younger sister Melissa Duffield said she felt “terrible”.

“Everything we’ve been trying to instill in our girls about self esteem has been taken away in one day,” Ms Giles said.

“The whole lot of them are miserable. We need a change of leadership, because this can’t be fixed.”

Mother Sue Connors said the principal wouldhave to “earn back the respect of our girls”.

Mother VickyFoster said “they’re supposed to be taught to have respect for themselves and each other.

“I don’t ever want to see my daughter come out of school again feeling worthless and dirty”.

The letter said the wearing of “very short” shorts was “causing concern”.

“The expectation is that shorts reach mid-thigh or lower,” the letter said.

“The wearing of shorts which are not long enough places our staff in potentially awkward situations and could be considered a child protection issue.”

It said non compliant students could face consequences including exclusion from extracurricular activities anddetentions.

A tenth of total spending is on health

Posted by Comments off

One tenth of the nation’s economic spending goes towards health, new data shows.One tenth of the nations economic spending goes towards health, new data shows.
苏州夜生活

spent nearly $181 billion on health in 2016/17, the n Institute of Health and Welfare’s report into health expenditure states.

Released on Friday, the data shows health spending grew by 4.7 per cent in that time period compared to an average of 3.1 per cent in each of the five years prior.

“This was also the first time spending grew more than the decade average (4.6 per cent) since 2011/12,’ AIHW spokesman Adrian Webster said in a statement on Friday.

‘s overall health spending equates to more than $7,400 spent per person in 2016/17, up more than $200 per person than the previous year.

The data shows government spending on health grew by 6.8 per cent in 2016/17, above the decade average of 4.5 per cent.

Individuals, private health insurers and other non-government sources funded 31 per cent of health spending, equalling $56.5 billion.

About $30 billion of which came from individuals.

State and territory governments contributed 51 per cent of the total cost of public hospitals, down from 52.4 per cent the previous year.

The federal government’s share has increased from 39.3 per cent in 2015/16 to 40.6 per cent the following year.

Health Minister Greg Hunt says a new national agreement will see more than $30 billion in additional funds go towards public hospitals in 2020/21.

“This means more hospital services, more doctors and more nurses, and increased funding every year for every state and territory,” he said in a statement on Friday.

He is calling on Victoria and Queensland to sign up to the funding agreement to “stop disadvantaging” their patients.

NT tops alcohol deaths

Posted by Comments off

Police Auxiliary Liquor Inspectors are being trained to monitor bottle shops.The rate of alcohol-related deaths in the Northern Territory is more than three times the national rate and by far the country’s highest, but the Northern Territory government insists it’s planned reforms will tackle the problem.
苏州夜生活

There were 16.7 alcohol-related deaths per 100,000 people in the NT last year, compared to just 5.1 nationally, n Bureau of Statistics figures released this week show.

Outside of Darwin, where the indigenous proportion of the population is higher, alcohol-induced deaths were 28.5 people.

The Gunner Labor government was elected in 2016, meaning last year’s deaths were under its watch.

Police Minister Nicole Manison said her government is introducing the “boldest alcohol reforms” in the history of the NT.

The author of those, former NT Supreme Court chief justice Trevor Riley, said the NT had among the highest rates of alcohol consumption of anywhere in the world – 44 four per cent drink at a risky level at least once a month, compared to a quarter of people nationally..

Ms Manison said unfortunately it was not new for the NT to have such high rates and it had been the case since she was a child.

“It is just an appalling statistic, no Territorian likes to see the level of alcohol-related harm we have in the community,” she told reporters.

“That is why this government is taking some of these reforms, which are not easy reforms for a government to go out there and to implement.”

Ms Manison met on Thursday with the current class of police auxiliary liquor inspectors (PALI) who are receiving training in Darwin and are one of the reforms.

The PALIs are not fully trained police but can still carry guns and make arrests and will be at bottle shops in Katherine, Alice Springs and Tennant Creek.

“The PALI is a critical position to tackling alcohol supply and making sure that those people who should not be getting their hands on alcohol do not get their hands on alcohol,” Ms Manison said.

The are already 18 PALIs working in what will be a new 97-member strong unit aimed at reducing alcohol-fuelled crime and violence, freeing up police to return to the frontline, she said.

Country Liberal Opposition Leader Gary Higgins questioned why the PALIs were not also being used around Darwin to tackle alcohol abuse.

He also said the government was not properly measuring the success or not of the 200-plus Riley alcohol reform recommendations, including a floor price, banned drinkers register and bans on Shop A Docket booze discounts.

Hodge tees up Cooper for Melbourne Rebels

Posted by Comments off

Wallabies centre Reece Hodge has backed Quade Cooper for a place in the Melbourne Rebels squad.It might not be long before Reece Hodge and Quade Cooper are sharing more than just a golf buggy, with the exiled Queensland five-eighth progressing in talks to join the Melbourne Rebels next season.
苏州夜生活

Wiped from the Reds’ plans by new coach Brad Thorn, Cooper has toiled at club and National Rugby Championship-level on full pay in 2018.

But the former Wallabies No.10 may finally have a home elsewhere if endorsements from his potential new teammates are anything to go by.

Rebels star and Wallabies outside centre Hodge played golf with Cooper on the Gold Coast earlier this month and hopes to do plenty more of it in Melbourne next year.

“It’d be awesome for it come to fruition,” Hodge said from Port Elizabeth ahead of Saturday’s Test against the Springboks.

“I think he’s working pretty hard on it at the moment but I’m not sure exactly where it’s at.”

Hodge can see an immediate benefit for himself by having a creator like Cooper playing inside him, but he also said the 30-year-old would add plenty more to the squad in general.

“Quade’s obviously seen a lot of scenarios over his career; he’s obviously made his mistakes and learnt from them on and off the field,” he said.

“I’ve seen what he can do and especially over the past three or four years that I’ve known him he’s definitely grown in terms of maturity and ability to a have a say in how he wants teams to play with the attacking shape.”

Hodge’s endorsement follows that of fellow Rebel and Wallaby Will Genia, who won a Super Rugby title alongside Cooper at the Reds.

Wallabies coach Michael Cheika has also said Cooper would be considered for an international return once back playing Super Rugby.

The island life has never looked better

Posted by Comments off

Sublime presentation of delicious food … slices of pork at Bommie.You won’t find too many of Hamilton Island’s nearly 1,800 residents have anything but good feelings towards the Oatley family, which for the past 15 years or so has owned the island and done much to develop it into the magical tourist destination it is.
苏州夜生活

Of those 1800, some 1200 are direct employees of the Oatleys — or family members of employees. The rest are concessionaire business people or employed by them.

Yet when Cyclone Debbie devastated the island — largest occupied island in Queensland’s Whitsunday group — in March last year and closed it to tourism for six months, not one employee lost a job. The Oatley family puts its deep pockets to good use.

Take care … some of the streets on Hamilton are steep indeed.

Regardless of their profession they were set to rebuilding the place. Local folklore has it that the nearest Bunnings store did very well.

By August last year — just in time for the island’s Race Week, which attracts yachties from near and far — the open-for-business flag was hoisted. To put that effort into perspective, neighbouring Hayman Island isn’t scheduled to reopen until next year.

In tourist accommodation terms, Hamilton Island offers quite a range, including the self-contained Palm Bungalows and a selection of holiday homes.

Casual elegance … the lounge at Hamilton Island’s Beach Club.

Those seeking hotel-style accommodation have three choices, beginning with the huge, multi-storey, four-star Reef View, where full-rate rooms start at $370 per night and go up to $995 per night for a two-bedroom terrace suite and $1330 per night for the two-storey Presidential Suite.

The 57-room Beach Club is adults-only, sits right on Catseye Beach, and has a generously spacious private infinity pool. Rates start at $710 per room per night, including a la carte breakfast, VIP transfers, complimentary internet, and use of equipment and facilities such as kayaks, snorkelling gear, catamarans, gym and tennis court.

Rates at the isolated, quite decadent Qualia — also adults-only — are from $1250 and reach $4550 per night for the Beach House, a hideaway with private pool and sundeck.

The infinity pool at the Beach Club.

I’m staying at the Beach Club and finding it spacious, beautifully located and furnished, and offering just the right mix of organised luxury and complete privacy.

The Beach Club Restaurant is a treat, with stunning outlook over the beach and the pool. Service, at both breakfast and dinner, is efficient and unobtrusive.

In the evening it offers both a la carte and degustation options, the latter with matching wines if desired. As they say in the classics, is the Pope a Catholic?

The degustation is sublime, from the heirloom tomato salad served with Piper-Heidsieck Brut, through house-cured salmon, succulent pork belly and small piece of eye fillet, served with buttered carrot puree, sautéed greens, asparagus and rosemary jus.

The wines are mainly from Western , including the Oatleys’ own Margaret River chardonnay and a Frankland River shiraz made by Larry Cherubino, now with his own boutique label rather than working for the substantial Houghtons company.

Absolute waterfront … from the Beach Club lounge.

In all cases they are excellent in their own right, and more importantly in this setting have been well selected to match each of the dishes.

A glass of the chef’s house-made limoncello serves as an excellent palate cleanser before a richly flavoured chocolate torte with salted-caramel ice-cream and a glass of Rutherglen muscat.

I also dine in Hamilton Island’s fine-dining restaurant, Bommie, which takes its name from the Aboriginal word ‘bombora’, and is located in the Hamilton Island Yacht Club, cantilevered over the marina and no doubt one of joys of the late Bob Oatley, one of sailing’s great characters.

The menu is contemporary and wherever possible features fresh n produce such as Mandagery Creek venison, Fremantle octopus and Great Southern lamb.

At the heart of the island is a town with many of the essential services — post office, pharmacy, supermarket, bakery, medical centre, school, several restaurants, etc, and there’s plenty for visitors to do.

A magnificent playground … from the veranda of my Beach Club room.

Activities are mostly, but not exclusively, water-based. Many involve Cruise Whitsundays, which offers regular sailings to the Queensland coastal settlement of Airlie Beach, as well as tours encompassing major attractions such as Whitehaven Beach and the Barrier Reef.

There’s also an excellent sunset cruise, with dinner, aboard MV Hamilton Star. The kitchen does a fine job producing a three-course meal under what must be trying, confined conditions in a galley kitchen.

The airport at the Port of Airlie is the launch pad for light-plane tours of the Whitsundays and the Reef, but Hamilton Island has its own commercial airport with regular connections to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Cairns.

Yachties’ heaven … the marina on Hamilton Island.

And getting around the place is a breeze. Golf buggies rule — there are literally hundreds of them — and are easily hired in two- or four-seat conformations.

A current driver’s licence is essential, but do take care if drinking, as drivers are subject to RBT laws, and some of the roads are steep and winding.

The Bronx’s Matt Caughthran reflects on how music gave his life meaning

Posted by Comments off

FREQUENT FLYERS: LA punk band The Bronx have toured at least 12 times since their 2002 formation.MATTCaughthran recalls growing up in Los Angeles in the ’90s devoid ofany direction or purpose.
苏州夜生活

He was popular, and hardlymiserable, but his career aspirationsappeared unlikely to branch beyond a series of dead-end jobs.

“I was empty inside man,” Caughthran says from Huntington Beach.“I always felt like a heavy soul or a burden.”

Until one day guitarist Joby Ford came along with aproposalto form a punk band. It would become The Bronx.

“Honestly, music just took all of that away and it was my place to put everything,” he says.“It became something for me that I can’t live without.

“It’s not just listening to music, it’s the whole thing. It’s having it consume your life. It saved me as I would have had nowhere to go with everything I was going through.”

Sixteen years later The Bronx have takenCaughthran around the world numerous times, including a dozen trips to , as a wild punk rock frontman.

The Bronx have released five high-energy records and popular singles Heart Attack American and Knifeman, plus three albums as spin-off band,Mariachi El Bronx.

The Bronx – KnifemanLast year’s album V was a particularly important moment for The Bronx.Caughthran admits the band needed to be brought back to life after a difficult spellthat involved the loss of original drummerJorma Vik and his replacementDavid Hidalgo Jr, before settling on ex-Queens Of The Stone Age memberJoey Castillo.

“There were a lot of things on the industry side of things that were frustrating and those frustrations carried into everyone’s individual lives,” he says.

“The easiest way to explain is to sayit was a rough patch. It was just hard. There were things that needed to be done in order for the band to grow and move and to continue. It was a trying year or two and we got through the process of making the record and that kind of sealed the transformation.

“It represented a rebirth and showed that we made it through the dark ages.”

In July The Bronx added Splendour In The Grass to their list ofn festivals withBig Day Out, Soundwaveand Groovin’ The Moo.However, that hasn’t stopped the five-piece from returning in October.

“Whenever we’re looking at our year we try to come to once a year,” he says.“That’s the goal. Obviously sometimes it can’t happen, but then sometimes we go twice in a year to make up for it.”

A major reason for The Bronx’s continuing live appeal is the sheer physicality of their shows.Caughthran is renown for throwing himself into the audience.

Despite turning 40 in February,Caughthran has no plansto curb his energetic performance style.

“Whatever we have to donate to the stage and the crowd, that’s what is gonna come out,” he says.“Honestly it’s just an amazing release.Bronx shows aren’t forced, it’s something that’s a genuine raw emotion and it makes your body move.”

The Bronx perform at the Cambridge Hotel on October 23.
