All hail King Jabaan of Yarrabah: Australia's only king

Simon Crerar
Saturday, December 17, 2011
© The Cairns Post

AUSTRALIA's sole king rules a rich, fertile land of 158 sq km bounded by turquoise seas and white sand beaches dotted with palm trees. Honouring the past, embracing the future, he's a very 21st century king.

Yarrabah’s first monarch for almost 20 years has identified cultural awareness, respect for elders and tackling illegal poaching as his priorities, alongside a plan to boost tourist numbers.

King Vincent Jabaan Schreiber of the Gunggandj tribe of the Guru-Gulu clan is the fifth generation of his family to hold the traditional title, yet he remains resolutely a man of the people.

He has no interest in pomp and circumstance, courtiers or servants. Instead, he tours his kingdom by Holden ute each day while working as Water & Waste manager for Yarrabah Shire Council.

View the Kingdom of Yarrabah on Google Maps

Hundreds of community members attended King Jabaan’s coronation ceremony, which began at the exact spot his ancestor Minminiy first encountered a white man in 1891. Yarrabah’s regal line was officially recognised by the Anglican church when Minminiy became king in 1899.
The Aboriginal community is the only one in Australia still to carry on the tradition.

Where is my visa and my house? - the first question asylum seekers ask


    by: Gemma Jones in Darwin
    From: The Daily Telegraph
    December 17, 2011 12:01AM

PEOPLE smugglers are luring asylum seekers on to boats bound for Australia during the dangerous monsoon season with promises of visas, housing and internet access.

The Daily Telegraph was yesterday the first media organisation to interview detainees in the nation's newest detention centre at Wickham Point in Darwin.

A 21-year-old Hazari asylum seeker who recently arrived from Pakistan after paying people smugglers $4000 in Indonesia said he knew the Malaysia deal had collapsed and that he had an expectation of receiving a visa.

He said he expected to be out of detention within four months and released into the community on a temporary visa.

 ::snipping2::

It is understood the top three questions being asked by those who have arrived since the government announced bridging visas for asylum seekers last month was "when will I get a visa", "a house" or "access to the internet".

Arrivals who were last week flown to the new centre - which was housing 210 detainees as of yesterday - had specific expectations about their detention accommodation and had gripes about the lack of facilities.

Detainees complained that the centre's 40 computers were not enough and four English classes were insufficient.

 ::snipping2::


There are plenty of our Australian born citizens that would be overjoyed to be given a house and all the extras plus the higher pension and benefits these illegals receive.

Hundreds missing in asylum boat sinking off Indonesia

    by: From correspondents in Jakarta
    From: news.com.au
    December 18, 2011 10:21AM

AN overloaded wooden vessel carrying about 250 migrants and suspected to be heading to Australia has sunk off Indonesia's main island of Java.

So far only 33 people have been rescued, search and rescue officials said, with efforts to reach survivors hampered by bad weather and heavy seas.

"A boat carrying around 250 people has sunk south of Prigi beach in eastern Java and we have started a search and rescue effort," the national search and rescue team said in an sms message.

State-run news agency Antara quoted search team member Brian Gauthier as saying: "The boat sank Saturday evening.

"It is somewhat difficult to go on with the search because extreme weather has caused reduced visibility," he said.

Thirty-three people have been rescued and are receiving assistance in the town of Prigi, about 30km from where the boat sank, Mr Gauthier said, adding that the rescue team believed some passengers were still alive and were likely suffering "severe dehydration".

"They must be evacuated as soon as possible," he said. "They can't stay for long in the middle of the sea."

The boat is believed to be a traditional fishing vessel with a capacity of around 100.

A survivor from Afghanistan, 24-year-old Esmat Adine, gave rescuers an estimate for how many passengers were on the boat.

"He did not know exactly how many passengers there were, but he said that four buses with around 60 or more adult passengers each had turned up to the port where they set off," a translator for Adine said.

Adine said the boat had been heading towards Australia's Christmas island.

Because people were so tightly packed, they had nowhere to go, he said.

"That made the boat even more unstable and eventually it sank," he said.

 ::snipping2::

The only people that win in these situations are the people smugglers who charge enormous sums of money to cram these unfortunate people on unseaworthy boats and send them off into the unknown.

Cautious optimism for music guru Molly Meldrum's recovery

by: Nui Te Koha and Mitchell Toy
    From: The Sunday Mail (Qld)
    December 18, 2011 12:00AM

SUPERSTAR Madonna is praying relentlessly for Molly Meldrum as the rock guru remains in a coma.

"He is a one and only," Madonna said yesterday. "I've always adored Molly and I'm praying around the clock."

Madonna said he had been an inspiration throughout her career.

As Meldrum rests in intensive care in a Melbourne hospital, still listed as critical after an accident at his home on Thursday, popular singer Michael Buble also added his best wishes.

"I was devastated to hear about Molly's accident," the crooner said. "My family and I are praying for him."

It is understood Madonna, Buble and Cher have sent flowers.

Sources close to Sir Elton John, who is a friend of Meldrum's and visited him last week while in Australia on tour, said the singer would be crushed by the news.

 ::snipping2::

Relatives face an anxious wait as the extent of Meldrum's brain injury becomes more clear in coming days.

Meldrum crushed his skull and punctured his lung when he fell in the backyard of his Richmond home while putting up decorations.

 ::snipping2::

"Molly's" real name is Ian - not sure how he got this nickname.

http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/national/new-inquest-into-azaria-chamberlain-case/story-e6freooo-1226224935265

Date set for fresh Azaria Chamberlain inquest

    From: AAP
    December 18, 2011 6:41AM

A NEW inquest into the disappearance of Azaria Chamberlain will begin on February 24, Fairfax reports.

Fairfax says Northern Territory Coroner Elizabeth Morris will conduct the inquest into the death of Azaria, who was nine weeks old when she disappeared from her parents' tent at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in 1980.

Azaria's mother Lindy said she saw a dingo leave the tent, a claim that was greeted sceptically by many in a case that gripped the attention of the nation.

 ::snipping2::

This is the case on which the movie "Evil Angels" (released in Europe and the Americas as "A Cry in the Dark") was based.

More earthquakes rattle Christchurch


    From: AAP
    December 24, 2011 5:33AM

EARTHQUAKES continued unrelentingly in Christchurch today, including one measuring 5.1 at 6.37am (3.37am AEST), as residents of the city prepared for a Christmas overshadowed by an ongoing natural disaster.

Quakes measuring 5.8 and 6.0 yesterday left dozens of people with minor injuries, while damage echoed previous quakes that had rattled the city since September last year.

This morning's quake was located 10km east of Akaroa at a depth of 9km, GNS Science said.

There were also two magnitude 4.2 quakes and two magnitude 4.3 quakes overnight and many other smaller shakes.

There are still about 400 residents without power on the eastern side of the city and aftershocks have cut water supply to the suburbs of Sumner, Redcliffs, Moncks Bay, Balmoral Hill, Richmond Hill, Clifton and Scarborough, parts of St Andrews Hill and Mt Pleasant.

The Palms Shopping mall, which serves the eastern suburbs, is not opening today.

Clouds gather: Top End bunkers down for cyclone

    From: AAP
    December 24, 2011 12:24PM

A TROPICAL cyclone could cause flying debris in towns off the Northern Territory coast near Darwin as early as this afternoon, the Bureau of Meteorology warns.

Coastal communities are being warned to expect wind gusts of up to 110km/h, with a cyclone predicted to hit between between Cape Fourcroy and Milingimbi late today or early on Christmas Day.

People on the Tiwi Islands, Cape Don and Croker Island are also expected to be affected.

A similar scenario on a larger scale played out in 1974 when Cyclone Tracy made landfall with Category 4 wind gusts of up to 240km/h early on Christmas Day.

That cyclone killed 49 people in the city. A further 16 perished at sea.

Dingo dilemma for Yvonne Cain - an Azaria Chamberlain juror who believed

    Janey Fife-Yeomans
    The Daily Telegraph
    December 24, 2011 12:00AM

YVONNE Cain never had a doubt about how Azaria Chamberlain died.

She had seen how dangerous dingoes could be after rescuing her own toddler from the jaws of one of the wild dogs that savaged him as he played in the backyard of their Alice Springs home.

Then, seven years later as a jury member, Ms Cain sat through the trial of Lindy and Michael Chamberlain.

She listened as the prosecution argued Lindy had killed their nine-week-old daughter on that August evening near Uluru, then known as Ayers Rock, and that Michael had covered up the murder.

Boxing Day sales 'an Australian tradition'

    by: By Darren Cartwright
    From: AAP
    December 24, 2011 2:50PM

THE Boxing Day sales could be ranked alongside the Boxing Day Test cricket match as a traditional festive season event, a major industry body says.

Australian National Retailers Association (ANRA) chief Margy Osmond says the post-Christmas sales have become a major outing for consumers.

She says thousands of consumers will spend the entire day trawling for bargains in major suburban and regional shops across Australia.

"There is a changing attitude which says post-Christmas sales are now embedded in the culture," Ms Osmond told AAP.

"You just don't go shopping on Boxing Day, you go out for an experience, the buzz and the rush.

"For many people, it's an exciting day out."

Ms Osmond said shoppers were also saving time by using technology to price bargains and get the cheapest deals.

An Australian version of an old favourite.  Translations available on request  lol



'Twas the night before Christmas; there wasn't a sound.
Not a possum was stirring; no-one was around.
We'd left on the table some tucker and beer,
hoping that Santa Claus soon would be here.

We children were snuggled up safe in our beds,
while dreams of pavlova danced 'round in our heads;
While Mum in her nightie, and Dad in his shorts,
had just settled down to watch TV sports.

When outside the house a mad ruckus arose;
 loud squeaking and banging woke us from our doze.
We ran to the screen door, peeked cautiously out,
snuck onto the deck, then let out a shout.

Guess what had woken us up from our snooze,
but a rusty old Ute, pulled by eight mighty 'roos.
The cheerful man driving was giggling with glee,
and we both knew at once who this plump bloke must be.

Now I'm telling the truth, it's all dinki-di,
those eight kangaroos fairly soared through the sky.
Santa leaned out the window to pull at the reins
and encouraged the 'roos by calling their names.

'Now, Kylie! Now, Kirsty! Now, Shazza and Shane!
On Kipper! On, Skipper! On, Bazza and Wayne!
Park up on that water tank. Grab a quick drink,
I'll scoot down the gum tree. Be back in a wink!'

So up to the tank those eight kangaroos flew,
with the Ute full of toys, and Santa Claus too.
He slid down the gum tree and jumped to the ground,
then in through the window he sprang with a bound.

He had bright sunburned cheeks and a milky white beard.
A jolly old joker was how he appeared.
He wore red stubby shorts and old thongs on his feet,
and a hat of deep crimson as shade from the heat.

His eyes - bright as opals - Oh! How they twinkled!
And, like a goanna, his skin was quite wrinkled!
His shirt was stretched over a round bulging belly
which shook when he moved, like a plate full of jelly.

A fat stack of prezzies he flung from his back,
and he looked like a swaggie unfastening his pack.
He spoke not a word, but bent down on one knee,
to position our goodies beneath the yule tree.

Surfboard and footy-ball shapes for us two.
And for Dad, tongs to use on the new barbeque.
A mysterious package he left for our Mum,
then he turned and he winked and he held up his thumb;

He strolled out on deck and his 'roos came on cue;
Flung his sack in the back and prepared to shoot through.
He bellowed out loud as they swooped past the gates-
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and goodonya, MATES!'

Merry Christmas, Tibro.    Translation, please.  I don't understand my relatives from Australia either. LOL


I will do my best grace-land. 

'Twas the night before Christmas; there wasn't a sound.
Not a possum was stirring; no-one was around.
We'd left on the table some tucker and beer,
hoping that Santa Claus soon would be here.

possum : small nocturnal native animal that lives in trees and on rooftops.
tucker : food


We children were snuggled up safe in our beds,
while dreams of pavlova danced 'round in our heads;
While Mum in her nightie, and Dad in his shorts,
had just settled down to watch TV sports.

pavlova : dessert made of beaten egg whites and sugar, topped with cream and fresh fruit.
nightie : nightgown or nightdress.
shorts :  short trousers - remember Christmas is at the height of our summer.


When outside the house a mad ruckus arose;
 loud squeaking and banging woke us from our doze.
We ran to the screen door, peeked cautiously out,
snuck onto the deck, then let out a shout.

ruckus : noise and fuss/ado
doze : sleep
screen door : security door usually also covered in fine mesh to keep out insects



Guess what had woken us up from our snooze,
but a rusty old Ute, pulled by eight mighty 'roos.
The cheerful man driving was giggling with glee,
and we both knew at once who this plump bloke must be.

snooze : sleep
Ute :  Utility - a motor vehicle similar to a small pickup
'roos : kangaroos


Now I'm telling the truth, it's all dinki-di,
those eight kangaroos fairly soared through the sky.
Santa leaned out the window to pull at the reins
and encouraged the 'roos by calling their names.

dinki-di : true, real

'Now, Kylie! Now, Kirsty! Now, Shazza and Shane!
On Kipper! On, Skipper! On, Bazza and Wayne!
Park up on that water tank. Grab a quick drink,
I'll scoot down the gum tree. Be back in a wink!'

First names usually shortened or changed to nicknames :  Shazza for Sharon and Bazza for Barry
water tank :  large tank made of corrugated iron that fills with rainwater from roof.
scoot : hurry


So up to the tank those eight kangaroos flew,
with the Ute full of toys, and Santa Claus too.
He slid down the gum tree and jumped to the ground,
then in through the window he sprang with a bound.

gum tree : one of our native flora - the sole diet of Koalas


He had bright sunburned cheeks and a milky white beard.
A jolly old joker was how he appeared.
He wore red stubby shorts and old thongs on his feet,
and a hat of deep crimson as shade from the heat.

joker : a man
stubby shorts : work shorts
thongs : flip flops


His eyes - bright as opals - Oh! How they twinkled!
And, like a goanna, his skin was quite wrinkled!
His shirt was stretched over a round bulging belly
which shook when he moved, like a plate full of jelly.

opals : gemstone
goanna : a very large lizard
jelly : jello


A fat stack of prezzies he flung from his back,
and he looked like a swaggie unfastening his pack.
He spoke not a word, but bent down on one knee,
to position our goodies beneath the yule tree.

prezzies : presents
swaggie : swagman
swagman : hobo - one who carried his belongings in a bag and wandered looking for work in the outback during the depression years.
goodies : presents or treats


Surfboard and footy-ball shapes for us two.
And for Dad, tongs to use on the new barbeque.
A mysterious package he left for our Mum,
then he turned and he winked and he held up his thumb;

footy-ball : football

He strolled out on deck and his 'roos came on cue;
Flung his sack in the back and prepared to shoot through.
He bellowed out loud as they swooped past the gates-
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, and goodonya, MATES!'

shoot through - leave in a hurry
goodonya : well done


 

I think I got them all and I have had fun as it is interesting to see what American terms I have picked up during my years with the monkeys.  Thank you for asking grace-land and I hope it helps with your Aussie rellies (Australian relatives)
