Corby must agree to snitch if freed

    News Limited Network
    March 15, 2013 4:27PM

SCHAPELLE Corby will have to guarantee to help Indonesian authorities catch other drug traffickers before she can be released on parole.

Kerobokan prison governor Ngurah Wiratna has revealed the Australian prisoner would need to sign up to being a "justice collaborator", meaning she would help narcotics police if required, before she could get out of jail.

Mr Wiratna has met Corby's Indonesian lawyer, Iskandar Nawing, five days after the Australian Government brought her release a step closer by officially guaranteeing she would not leave Indonesia while on parole.

The jail boss initially also said Corby would be required to admit her guilt before being eligible for parole, before later clarified his position after examining the detail of government regulations introduced last year.

Melb hospital joins PM in adoption apology

    From: AAP
    March 20, 2013 5:46PM

A MELBOURNE hospital has apologised to women who were forced to give up their babies for adoption over a 30-year period.

Monash Health chief executive Shelly Park said she was truly sorry for the pain and loss so many experienced through past adoption practices at the Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital in the 30-year period up to the late 1970s.

"I recognise that many women, particularly young single women, experienced grief, pain, anger and loss, some of which have continued to the present time," Ms Park said on Wednesday.

"For this, I apologise unconditionally."

Dodgy Bros counterfeit superstore - police swoop on Gabi Zayout who allegedly had fake goods

    Yoni Bashan
    The Daily Telegraph
    March 20, 2013 12:00AM

POLICE arrested the alleged kingpin of Australia's counterfeit blackmarket after uncovering a nerve-centre of designer fakes housed in Sydney's southwest yesterday.

Authorities swooped on a storage facility at Belfield, raiding five warehouse-sized rooms allegedly filled with brand-name fakes.

The Daily Telegraph was on the scene and saw boxes of handbags, colognes, wallets, suits and shoes being confiscated. One storage area was allegedly set up to resemble a department store, with perfumes allegedly stacked on shelves for easy viewing and suits hung on racks according to their style.

Police arrested 50-year-old Gabi Zayout at the scene before escorting him away for questioning. He was released pending further inquiries. Police expect charges to be laid.

Zayout is alleged to be the importer of the goods and a "main player" in the trade of counterfeit items.

I like the new Pope also Sister.  As a Protestant I guess I may have a different view but I do like his attitude to his more humble flock members and doing away with so many of the trappings and expenses of office to aid the poor.

That is an interesting question and I had to go look at the Statistics site for results of our latest census in 2011.  We are not predominantly Catholic and according to the figures just over 60% of our population are Christian, with 25% Catholic and 17% Anglican and 5% Uniting Church which covers former Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational churches.  Then there are all the other smaller groups which also include some of the Presbyterians etc who chose not to unite.  (Some wag once commented that they were wise in calling themselves the Uniting Church as they had not reached the stage of being the United Church).

The huge influx of migrants has also brought in many non Christian religions but the one thing that is surprising is the large number (22%) who marked "no religion" on their replies.  Not sure if this is how they all feel or just that they consider it their own business.  It does not say in the table but I have an inkling the form did not make this question compulsory.

That is interesting -- no religion -- of course, that does not necessarily mean no faith and/or no belief.  Many people shy away from what they perceive as "organized" religion.  Organized indeed! haha!

What exciting news.  I had no idea it was that long.  I am not computer savvy either except for accounting procedures and financial statements and other business matters etc.

Celebrity Chef Matt Golinski returns to cooking stage

    by: Janelle Miles
    From: The Courier-Mail
    April 10, 2013 3:30PM

ALMOST a year to the day since he was released from hospital after treatment for burns to 40 per cent of his body, celebrity chef Matt Golinski returned to the cooking stage in Brisbane on Wednesday.

The celebrity chef whipped up a French cassoulet and a raspberry and dragonfruit salad in front of a lunchtime crowd of dozens at the Jan Power Farmers' Market.

"I love teaching people to cook and inspiring them to go out and try new things,'' he said.

"It's my passion and what I like to do. It's magic.''


An amazing man and an inspiration to all.

Must have skipped over this article.  Reminds me of young women here who were "forced" by their families to give up their babies for adoption.  Of course, there are multiple cases where the baby was raised as a sibling in the family.

Murder of Judith Bartlett denied her children the love they craved


    Andrew Carswell
    The Daily Telegraph
    May 28, 2013 12:00AM

FOR 49 years, Francis Ryan and her younger brothers lived with the cruel emotional crush that their mother did not love them; that she had abandoned them in their infancy to pursue her own life. Never to return.

While they spent decades wondering why she had left, Judith Bartlett was dead.

For almost half a century her bones lay in a lonely field, 145km from the warmth of her Bathurst family home, and the thoughts of her children.

Now, the revelation of Judith's plight has created a strange anomaly that in hearing that their mother was murdered, her trio of kids finally felt the peace of knowing she loved them.

Instead of walking out on them, she was snatched from their lives on an autumn day in 1964 while walking the 2˝ blocks to work at the old Royal Hotel, leaving 10-year-old Francis, six-year-old Graeme, and two-year-old Daryl without a mother.

What a incredible story.  And her poor husband Richard died without ever knowing the truth about why she didn't come home.
At least part of the pain is gone from the children now.  Bless their hearts!
