Bowna nurse Trish Ryan’s turns grief into a life-saving gift

NO PLACE LIKE HOME: Siblings Anita and Manoj Tamang completing their homework at Noble House after the death of their father and with their mother living in a remote part of Nepal, unable to care for them.When Trish Ryan’s daughter died, she refused to sit and grieve at home.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

Instead the nurse and mother of fourgathered up all the love in her heartand took it across the world to an orphanage in Nepal.

Meg was just 23 when complications from spina bifida claimed her life in 2003.

She had been studying a Bachelor of Education at Charles Sturt University and was a popular teacher’s aid atschools in the district.

It was the brave young woman’s dream to help disadvantaged children once she finished her training.

As the first anniversary of Meg’s death loomed, the grieving mother booked a flight to Nepal–she’d longed to volunteer there since her early nursing days.

When Mrs Ryan arrived at the small orphanage in Bagmati, on the outskirts of Kathmandu, she discovered a deplorable place overflowing with malnourished children dressed in rags.

Managed by a corrupt administration, staff were often forced to beg for food on the streets and there was an open sewage drain running through the house.

On her returnto , Mrs Ryanralliedresidents inher local farming community of Bowna whobegan fundraising in earnest.

Meg’s Children was founded in 2005 and has been tranforming the lives of disadvantaged children in Nepal ever since.

Initially the charitable trust supported the children from Bagmati orphanage and their house mothers Nanda and Bibechana to be relocated to a new home in Bhaktapur with Mrs Ryantravellingback regularly to oversee its operation.

From that first move to create a stable and loving home for vulnerable children, the focus of the charity has expanded with education its underlying ethos.

Six of that original band of childrenare now at university`and today the Meg’s Children Trust operates in partnership with Siddhi Memorial Hospitaland a dedicated group of Albury volunteers.

GIFT OF LIFE: Nurse and mother of four Trish Ryan has spent more than a decade helping destitute children in Nepal after the death of her daughter Meg, who was 23.

It has truly been a labour of love for Mrs Ryan whofunds all her own travel costs.

Fundraising is the lifeline to a brighter future.

Melbourne businessman Mike Coen was so moved by her efforts he has pledged to raise $100,000 in an epic walk from August 21.

Mrs Ryan said it was this type of supportthat would continue to education children in the hope they would be leaders ofthe future andhelp Nepal out of its poverty.

Looking back on her journey during the past decade, Mrs Ryan said in many ways it was meant to be.

She knows Meg would approve of the legacy in her name.

“I think she would be100 per cent impressed and she would also say don’t ever give up – keep on going,” Mrs Ryan said.

Matty Johnson and Sophie Monk given downgraded Bachelor mansion

08.14.2019, Comments Off on Matty Johnson and Sophie Monk given downgraded Bachelor mansion, 苏州夜生活, by .

Amid massive financial woes, Channel Ten is said to be tightening the purse strings in more ways than allegedly rationing avocados and coffee.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

While filming The Bachelor and The Bachelorette this year, Matty Johnson and Sophie Monk were put up in a $1.7 million, four-bedroom, three-bathroom house with an indoor pool in Dural, north-west Sydney.

Not too shabby for the marketing director, 30, and the former Bardot singer and actress, 37.

But it’s a far cry from the lavish $4.1 million five-bed, four-bath mansion with two outdoor pools and its very own lake with featured fountain that last year’s The Bachelor Richie Strahan and The Bachelorette Georgia Love lived in.

Strahan and Love had more than 20,000 square metres of sprawling estate to roam around on as they pondered who they would date and dump, while Johnson and Monk were confined to a mere 1008 square metres.

Channel Ten entered into voluntary administration in June, but a spokeswoman for The Bachelor denied the house move had anything to do with budget cuts.

“It just suited the needs of the production better this season … and provided a different outlook for filming,” they added, despite the former mansion in Middle Dural being closer to where the unlucky-in-love contestants are based at Abbott Place, Glenorie, while the new residence is over 15 kilometres away.

The reality series is no stranger to a move. Last year they upped sticks and left the heritage-listed waterfront estate, Clifton, in leafy Hunters Hill, that was rumoured to have cost production $25,000 a week in rent.

The news of the house downgrade amid reports last week that contestants’ living conditions left a lot to be desired, with food restricted.

A spokeswoman labelled the story as “ridiculous”, and

rationed avocados were put down to “seasonal shortages”.

When it came to “uncomfortable” bunk beds, an insider told Fairfax Media: “I think that’s probably all up to personal interpretation,” while shared living quarters have helped past contestants form strong friendships that have continued long after the show had wrapped.

Although season five is rating higher than any other for Ten, the series has not been without its problems.

The winner of Johnson’s heart was photographed with him last year while filming the finale in Thailand by two well-known Sydney paparazzi.

Ten won an injunction at the NSW Supreme Court to stop the paparazzi from publishing the 318 photographs or disclosing the identities of the home visits and the finale – another costly move amid the ailing broadcaster’s financial struggles.

HOWARD AFR 070504 MELB PIC BY JESSICA SHAPIRO… Prime Minister John Howard and Joe Hockey, Federal Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, held a press conference this afternoon to announce changes to the workchoices package. Story by Eli Greenblat. AFR FIRST USE ONLY PLEASE!!! SPECIALX 64658

It’s better sometimes when we don’t get to touch our dreams.

The incoming Coalition government wanted low wage growth, badly.

Within weeks of taking office in 2013 employment minister Eric Abetz upbraided “weak-kneed employers” whom he said were unable to “just say no”.

They were all for the carrot, but saw no role for the stick.

He led by example, abolishing the Commonwealth guidelines for cleaners employed in places such as Parliament House. It meant that when their contracts expired the workers who cleaned his office would get just $17.49 an hour (the minimum wage) instead of the $22.02 they had previously been guaranteed; an absolute pay cut of 20 per cent.

He offered defence force staff just 1.5 per cent a year, less than inflation and the least in living memory. He said he expected other public servants to get the same or less. He offered staff in his own department just 0.5 per cent, along with cuts in conditions. Several agencies offered nothing – pay rises of zero per cent – with government endorsement.

The worst thing about his call to arms was the timing. Wage growth was in free-fall. A year earlier it had been 4.3 per cent. When he spoke, it was below inflation at 2.5 per cent, it’s now below inflation at 1.9 per cent.

The previous Coalition government, led by John Howard, had done much of the work for him. Its WorkChoices legislation made it harder for unions to win pay rises. With employees in many workplaces forced to negotiate individually, employers with the power to hire and fire had the upper hand.

It didn’t matter much while the economy was booming. Employers desperate to find staff willingly bid up rates. But when things turned down, the upper hand became decisive.

By then much of the WorkChoices infrastructure had been stripped away, but so too had much of the union infrastructure. Membership fell further. In 1996, when Howard took office, 31 per cent of the n workforce was represented by a union. The latest figure is 15 per cent.

Another of his changes made it hard for unions to exercise power even when they found a seat at the table. Shortly after becoming prime minister he introduced the Temporary Work Skilled Subclass 457 visa, otherwise known as the 457.

Employers facing shortages could take in an unlimited number of skilled workers from overseas. They’d have to be paid n wages, but the ability of employers to get them in rather than bid up n wages left unions with little to bargain with.

Even without 457s, ns were facing competition from overseas.

The boom in Chinese manufacturing which took off under Howard made n prices uncompetitive. The higher dollar, pushed up by China’s demand for n raw materials, made n manufacturers even less competitive.

White-collar work, including answering phones and providing legal and accountancy advice, can be done more cheaply overseas. Technology is also making traditional workers expendable. Uber drivers do what taxi drivers did for half the price. Self-driving taxis and trucks will do it for even less.

It isn’t all bad. Low wage growth appears to have helped n businesses keep workers on during the global financial crisis. It has meant the government has spent less than it expected on wages and wage-linked pensions, as well as getting less than it expected from bracket creep.

But it gives the people on those slowly-growing wages a sense that they need to be careful. We are saving far more than we used to, and switching jobs less often. We’re battening down the hatches, hanging on, in the hope that something picks up.

Going postal: how the same-sex marriage vote could work

08.14.2019, Comments Off on Going postal: how the same-sex marriage vote could work, 苏州夜生活, by .

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – FEBRUARY 22: Draped in the rainbow flag and enjoying the atmosphere at the Mardi Gras fair day on February 22, 2015 in Sydney, . (Photo by James Alcock/Fairfax Media)Immigration Minister Peter Dutton bills it as the “next best option”. Labor leader Bill Shorten calls it a “delaying mechanism from the dinosaurs of the right wing of the Liberal Party”, while marriage equality advocates are weighing up a legal challenge.

Welcome to the postal vote for same-sex marriage.

Dutton first floated a postal plebiscite in March, arguing it was the “sensible approach” because the Senate had blocked the government’s preferred plan to hold a compulsory vote on the issue. The postal idea, which is supported by Queensland’s Liberal National Party, is based on the understanding that if the vote was voluntary, the government would not need Parliament’s approval to go ahead.

Now with the very real prospect of pro-marriage equality Liberal MPs crossing the floor to bring on a vote on same-sex marriage and a showdown party room meeting set for next Monday, the postal vote is looking more like a live option as a way to keep the peace.

But is it a viable compromise? Or will it end up creating more problems than it solves?

is used to voting in person at a polling booth. But the n Electoral Commission has plenty of experience conducting postal votes. On top of optional postal voting for people overseas or in remote areas during regular elections, the AEC arranged a postal vote for Queenslanders on council amalgamations in 2007.

However, the last time the AEC organised a postal vote at a national level was in 1997 to elect delegates for the constitutional convention on the republic. A recent paper prepared by the parliamentary library estimates that in today’s dollars this cost around $40 million (compared to the estimated $160 million needed to conduct a compulsory plebiscite). The bulk of the funds went on the production and postage of voting papers, advertising, divisional office costs and public information.

It wasn’t a speedy process. The non-compulsory vote took more than three months from the time prime minister John Howard announced the election dates to the declaration of the results. This included two weeks for the ballot papers to be mailed and about a month for people to send them back to the AEC. It’s arguable a postal vote for same-sex marriage would not need as long – as it is asking a more simple question and does not need a nomination period for delegates.

Surprisingly (if you look at the way he avoided answering questions on it this week), Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was mightily opposed to the postal approach in 1997, as leader of the republic’s “yes” campaign. In an opinion piece for The n, he said postal voting “flies in the face of n democratic values”.

According to the article, unearthed by Crikey, Turnbull raised concerns about the high number of people who change their address between elections. “These voters will not get their ballot papers. Not unless they ring up and make a special request, and who will get around to doing that?”

Turnbull also said young people and Indigenous people in remote communities were at greater risk of being disenfranchised because they tend to move more often. Young people were certainly less likely to vote in the 1997 ballot than any other age group. As a percentage of those enrolled in their age group, only 34 per cent of 18-25 year-olds participated in the postal vote. This compares to 50 per cent of 46-55 year-olds and 59 per cent of those over 56.

It’s also true that young people are less involved in elections, generally. In the 2016 election, 95 per cent of eligible voters participated, compared to 86.7 per cent of eligible 18-24 year-olds. There are fears among same-sex marriage advocates that given support for marriage equality is more pronounced among younger people, a postal vote will harm the “yes” camp’s chances if there was a vote.

Monash University senior lecturer in n politics Nick Economou??? isn’t convinced by this argument. He notes that because same-sex marriage is an issue that young people care about, they are more likely to want to vote. And even though they do live in a digital world, they are also more than capable of using a pen and an envelope (it’s not that hard).

“I have full confidence young people would be engaged,” Dr Economou says.

In his 1997 tirade against postal voting, Turnbull also warned that a postal ballot lacked secrecy and integrity. “In the voting booth each of us votes alone. Without the pressure of husband or wife, parent or child. When the postal ballot arrives in the letter box how many people will be compelled to vote one way or other by a strong??-willed friend or family member?”

Economou similarly notes there are no real protections against one person in a household simply filling out papers for others they live with, perhaps with the more benign intention of helping rather than bullying.

Another significant question mark hovering over the postal vote is its ability to deliver decisive victory or closure. Non-compulsory voting means less people – of any age group – will vote. In 1997, just 47 per cent of voters sent their ballot papers back.

As Sydney Liberal MP and same-sex marriage opponent Craig Kelly told Fairfax Media last month: “My concern would be that a voluntary postal vote may not have the authority of a compulsory vote at the ballot box. It would be very easy for one group to say they would boycott it and not recognise the result.”

So, beyond its proponents within the Coalition, it is difficult to find fans of the postal vote.

Those who are against same-sex marriage, such as the n Christian Lobby, say the postal vote is an “option that should be canvassed” – given the plebiscite was blocked in the Senate (by Labor and the Greens). But the lobby’s managing director Lyle Shelton adds his preferred option is for the government to “just show some resolve” and take its plebiscite policy to the next election.

The “yes” camp – who vociferously opposed the idea of a compulsory plebiscite – don’t even want to entertain the idea of a voluntary one. ns for Equality executive director Tiernan Brady says a postal vote sends a “terrible message” about LGBTI ns.

“I don’t think the dignity of one group of people should be subject to something that’s written on the back of an envelope.”

There is also talk of a legal challenge, even before the precise details of the proposal are made public. Marriage equality advocate Rodney Croome??? told The n he was seeking legal advice on the whether the non-compulsory vote would still need the authority of Parliament, given it would involve the spending of public funds.

Melbourne University constitutional expert Adrienne Stone says the government may have the capacity to spend money on the postal vote under the heading of “ordinary services of government”. Professor Stone said it could potentially be argued the government was legitimately testing the opinion of the people as part of policy formulation.

But Stone, the director of the Centre for Comparative Constitutional Studies, said this is still a new area of law, in the wake of the High Court’s 2014 school chaplains case that ruled government spending should be subject to parliamentary oversight.

“You can bet your bottom dollar there is going to be a challenge.”
