ns have come to regard our revolving door of prime ministers as something of a structural weak point in our democratic process.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

But maybe there’s a silver lining.

Across the ditch – in the land of the long white cloud – New Zealand’s new Labor opposition leader, Jacinda Ardern, faced immediate questioning last week about her intention, as a 37-year-old woman, to fall pregnant in the near future.

“The question is, is it OK for a PM to take maternity leave while in office?” demanded Mark Richardson, a former cricketer turned radio presenter, who had just the previous day used his national platform to confess to defecating off the back of a jet ski.

Right-wing radio shock jocks. Everyone’s got ’em.

Instead of leaping from her seat to throttle her knuckle-dragging interlocutor, Ms Ardern trod the path of so many female leaders before her, insisting she’s totally down with answering this question herself – no one likes a whiney woman – but insisting the question was “totally unacceptable” to ask of other women.

“It is a woman’s decision about when they choose to have children, and it should not predetermine whether or not they are given a job or have job opportunities,” Ms Ardern unleashed.

Amen, sister.

Just to be clear: In , it is unlawful for employers to quiz female employees about their intentions to have children.

For the avoidance of doubt, I asked our sex discrimination commissioner, Kate Jenkins, to clarify. This is what she said:

“Under the federal Sex Discrimination Act, it is unlawful to discriminate against an employee on the basis of their sex, pregnancy, potential pregnancy, family responsibilities and breastfeeding. This includes, for example, refusing to employ a woman because she is – or may become – pregnant, unless there are genuine health and safety concerns.”

“Section 27 of the Sex Discrimination Act specifically states that it is unlawful to ask a woman during a job interview whether she is pregnant or intends to become pregnant if that information is requested in connection with determining whether to offer her employment.”

Only last month, the NSW president of the n Medical Association, Brad Frankum, wrote to members after it came to his attention hospitals had been asking female candidates for advanced or specialist trainee positions about their pregnancy plans, either in formal interviews or informal chats beforehand.

But if the question is whether it is possible for a prime minister to take time out from his or her fixed term for parental leave, it’s a question New Zealand’s northerly neighbours – us – have answered in the affirmative.

For the past decade, there has been a bi-partisan experiment with a novel new job-sharing arrangement for the position of prime minister, in which PMs leave their post frequently to recover from a painful physical procedure – not childbirth, but the altogether more humiliating procedure of removing a knife lodged deep in one’s upper lumbar region by one’s colleagues.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott had only a brief two-year spell in office before being forced by colleagues to take an extended period of leave from which – after approaching two years – he seems keen to return from.

Kevin Rudd was only PM for two-and-a-half years before taking a three-year extended break – more than enough time to deliver a child, breastfeed it to World Health Organisation standards, and have it constructing full sentences before he returned to work.

But while fresh female leaders still face intrusive questions about their ability to their juggle work while potentially raising infants, no-one thinks to quiz ‘s male leaders on their ability to juggle their aspirations for a lengthy tenure with the increasingly fevered tantrums and dummy spits from backbenchers that would make any toddler blush.

It all begs the question why such an innovative job-sharing arrangement should not be extended to all members of parliament – to facilitate more mothers, or fathers, juggling the demands of full time parliamentary work and exhausting travel to and from Canberra.

In addition to taking extended parental leave periods – which several have – why shouldn’t two MPs with parental responsibilities share the job of one? Given the tendency of part-time working parents tend to regularly chip in work well beyond their paid hours, n taxpayers would likely be ahead on the deal.

The right to request flexible working arrangements – including part-time work – is enshrined in n anti-discrimination laws. But it is strangely absent with it comes to the persons who actually make those laws.

Perhaps ns could have retained the skills of talented mothers such as Kate Ellis or Nicola Roxon if such flexibility were extended to all.

In the broader workplace, the best way to neutralise employer concerns about potential female employees skipping work to change nappies is to not confine periods of parental leave to one parent – usually the mother.

Why not enforce a “use it or lose it” period of lengthy paid leave for fathers? Or, for a cheaper option, force parents to split existing parental leave entitlements down the middle? Three months for mum to recover physically from birth and give breastfeeding a go, and then three months for dad to take over, easing the transition for mum back to the workplace?

It might not suit everyone, but if employers knew that young men and women were just as likely to take time out to rear children, they could extend their unlawful inquiries about parenting plans to men as well as women.

Or, better yet, they could stay mum on the subject altogether.

Killed in the 1970s, finally buried in 2017

THE STORYStretch was a bit of an enigma.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

He was the one FW Barnes and Son had the least details about, but Ian Getsom knew as soon as he saw the name in a public notice that Stretch was his mate Johnny.

Now, Mr Getsom is going to help return Johnny home and give him some closure.

John Stretch died in a car accident between Scarsdale and Lintonin 1976 buthis ashes lay with about 80 uncollected, forgotten souls atFW Barnes and Son.

“I couldn’t let Stretch stay in Ballarat for the rest of forever. He deserved to be with his family,” Mr Getsom said.

“…he had a funeral and wake at the Church of England in Skipton so this will be another farewell. I can’t explain it –I’m just making sure he gets to where he needs to be.”

Mr Getsom has worked closely with FW Barnes and Son manager Simon Dwyer to bring John Stretch home to what was the family property, Naringal Station, where his parents are buried. It was the first place Mr Getsom rang when he saw the notice inThe Courier.

TRIBUTE: “We don’t know their stories, but we know their names,” says FW Barnes and Son director Simon Dwyer.

As custodians of the ashes, FW Barnes and Son could not release John Stretch to Mr Getsom but they can take him to the station with the blessing of family.

Mr Getsom had tracked down distant Stretch cousins in Albany, Perth in a path that led him back to a cousin in Ballarat.

In an interesting twist, it was on the phone to West n cousin Rosemary Cunningham, that Mr Getsom helped prompt closure for a second soul.

“Rosemary said to me, ‘Ian, you’ve just reminded me something –my husband’s in the cupboard’,” Mr Getsom said. “She had been planning to take him out to the family farm.”

FW Barnes and Sons is planning a memorial garden for unclaimed ashesin a discreet corner where people may pay their respects. It is a way to help create closure for their life stories.

“John was a fast man, he loved fast cars and was a member of the Ballarat Light Car Club …he was also a member of the Willowdale Fire Brigade, a champion tennis player and he was in the Lions’ Club at Cape Clear,” Mr Getsom said.

“He’s an all-round top bloke, a gentleman.”

THE BURIALVintage cars formed a cortège to take John Stretch home to Naringal on Wednesday. They embarked from FW Barnes and Son, in whose custody Mr Stretch’s ashes had layunclaimed for more than 40 years.

Mr Stretch had been one of 80 forgotten souls at the funeral home, until a public noticecaptured his friend Ian Getsom’s attention.

Working with FW Barnes and Son manager Simon Dwyer, Mr Getsom helped locate the extended Stretch family to take his friend Johnny home to what was the family station.

Killed in the 1970s, finally buried in 2017 TweetFacebookBallarat businessman Peter Stevens worked alongside John Stretch at Craig Brothers in Armstrong Street South, about where Central Square is now. Mr Stretch managed spare parts and Mr Stevens managed the workshop.

Mr Stevens was interstate when one of his friends rang to say there would be a procession and memorial service for Mr Stretch.

“I just thought, I’ve got to get back to be part of it,” Mr Stevens said. “John was a great guy and heavily involved in car club rallying.”

About a dozen cars made the journey from Ballarat to Naringal Station, near Cape Clear, where friends helped a memorial ceremony before spreading his ashes.

Mr Stretch died in a car crashbetween Scarsdale and Lintonin 1976, aged 49. His original funeral and wake werein Skipton.

Hailing from a large extended family, Mr Stretch had no direct descendants.

Cousin Bernie Ebbs, who spoke at the ceremony, said it was an important event for the wider Stretch family.

“John and I are distant cousins and although we didn’t know each other, in some ways we led parallel lives,” Mr Ebbs said in the service. “I spent school holidays with relatives at Wallinduc and developed a love for the land there. I think John lived and worked in the same district all her life.”

Mr Ebbs said their great grandfather was Reverend Theodore Carlos Benoni Stretch, who became Archdeacon of Ballarat and founded Geelong Grammar School. The Anglican Cathedral will host Archdeacon Stretch Sunday with a choral eucharist and lunch on Sunday, from 9.30am.

Shorten announces support for Indigenous ‘Voice to Parliament’

12.12.2018, Comments Off on Shorten announces support for Indigenous ‘Voice to Parliament’, 苏州桑拿会所, by .

Bill Shorten has backed a referendum question on an indigenous voice to parliament, but Malcolm Turnbull has failed to give bipartisan support. Photo: Peter EveOpposition Leader Bill Shorten has backed a constitutionally-enshrined “Voice to Parliament” representing Indigenous people, marking the first clear commitment by him or Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to the Referendum Council’s central recommendation.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

In a speech to the Garma Festival in the Northern Territory, also attended by Mr Turnbull and leading Indigenous figures, Mr Shorten expressed support for a “Makarrata” reconciliation commission and repeated the Labor Party’s openness to treaties between Indigenous people and n governments.

Mr Turnbull’s more conservative address to the gathering outlined a respect for the Referendum Council’s recommendations but said they would need to be considered properly and reiterated his caution about over-ambitious referendums.

The Opposition Leader said: “Labor supports a voice for Aboriginal people in our constitution, we support a declaration by all parliaments, we support a truth-telling commission, we are not confronted by the notion of treaties with our first ns.”

He said “voting for a constitutional voice is our chance to bring our constitution home, to make it better, more equal, more n” and “Aboriginal ns do not need a balanda [white person] lecture about the difficulty of changing the constitution”.

On the eve of the festival, Mr Shorten proposed a bipartisan parliamentary committee to finalise the recommendations, in consultation with Aboriginal voices, with a view to completing a referendum proposal by the end of the year.

His call for another committee has been greeted with scepticism and frustration from Indigenous figures – including former Referendum Council co-chair Pat Anderson and council member Megan Davis – who contend the Parliament should move immediately to propose a referendum question based on the already available work.

Mr Shorten said detail of how a Voice and Makarrata commission would work still needed to be figured out in a parliamentary process. He emphasised a Voice would act as an advisory body on legislation affecting Aboriginal people and not have veto power over legislation.

A Makarrata commission could oversee the creation of treaties and a reconciliation and truth-telling process about wrongs committed against Aboriginal people.

Following his speech, asked about the constitutional conservatives of the Coalition government, Mr Shorten said Labor would not wait for approval from the “right-wing rump” of the Liberal Party before backing big ideas.

The council’s recommendations were handed to parliamentary leaders just over a month ago following the Uluru Statement, which was finalised at a historic gathering of Indigenous representatives in May and also proposed a “First Nations Voice”.

Mr Turnbull told the festival: “I respect deeply the work of the Referendum Council and all of those who contributed to it. And I respect it by considering it very carefully.”

He said many important questions about the proposals still needed to be answered and noted that, until recently, referendum discussions had focused on removing the constitution’s race powers and recognising Indigenous people in the document.

“However, the Referendum Council has told us a Voice to Parliament is the only option they advise us to put to the n people. We have heard this and we will work with you to find a way forward.”

The Prime Minister warned that voters are constitutionally conservative and said a proposal must be clear, simple, backed by Indigenous people and broadly popular among ns overall to be successful.

In a press conference following his speech, Mr Turnbull said cabinet would consider the recommendations shortly and suggested Mr Shorten’s timeline of a referendum proposal by the end of the year was overly ambitious.

“It’s not mappie season yet, so they must be nesting early. They usually nest in September or October. But this one was out in the last week in July.

“It may be the same one that attacked me two years ago. They are very territorial and they remember faces.

“Last year I heard that a magie in the area pecked a man’s ear and left it bleeding.”

Joan said there are two permanent magpie warning signs installed by the council in Alice Street but is worried that cyclists could be unprepared for their early return.

“I just want to let cyclists and pedestrians know that a magpie has started swooping in the area earlier than usual and this one is very aggressive. I don’t want other people to be attacked.

“The best thing is to avoid the area altogether. I won’t be going back until December.

‘You only need one good race a year; this will be mine’

Rio, Brazil, August 2016. The Olympic 200 metres semi-final. Ella Nelson, from Sydney by way of Phoenix, Arizona, little-known outside of the wider Nelson and athletics family, lunges at the line.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The clock stops sooner than she has ever halted it before in a half-lap race. She is exultant for, oh, a couple of minutes. During a TV interview she learns the cruel truth that she has missed the final … by one hundredth of a second. Her finest race on the biggest stage has left her short of being the first n woman since Mel Gainsford-Taylor and Cathy Freeman to make an Olympic track final by how much? Just 0.01s.

That amount of time in her race is, she has been reliably informed since, about the width of a dollar coin, or as a female teammate reportedly later kindly offered, about the difference of a padded bra. That didn’t make it any easier.

Regardless of the result, Nelson went from anonymous to eponymous in a race. She came to symbolise a new n team at that Games, the face of the next generation.

The disappointment of missing out has now dulled and the satisfaction of her achievement has replaced it.

“Rio was insane, it was crazy. It was the most amazing thing,” Nelson said in London ahead of the world athletics championships.

“I had the most fun there, even though I was so close to something so great there. It is a really good memory to look back on that I will cherish it for the rest of my life.

“I actually do [still watch the race], I have a motivational folder in my phone and it has got some races from when I was 15, obviously Rio, and some good ones from this year and even in the motivational ones I have chucked in the bad ones because you need to learn from those bad ones.”

On that basis Nelson has been doing some learning this year. Her Rio performance has not parlayed immediately into stronger and better performances. As head coach Craig Hilliard said, sometimes athletes peak then plateau or fall away and then rise again. The question of whether they rise again, or how far they rise, is up to them.

Nelson and her coach have a similar take on success and development saying it is not linear but winding, more roller-coaster than escalator.

“It has been an interesting year so far. It’s been tough, I’m not going to lie, but every year is different, that’s what everyone keeps telling me,” she said.

“Unfortunately I started the year with a sesamoid stress reaction so I was in a boot for eight weeks right after Rio. I just felt there was this never-ending injury cycle but it has ended, I’m injury free but just dealing with some other stuff [which she preferred not to expand on].

“I’ve spoken to quite a lot of athletes and well-known Olympians and they all say the year following is really difficult, sometimes sub-consciously, sometimes consciously … things have been tough.”

At nationals she ran a 23.91s, well down on the PB 22.5 she ran in Rio, and was beaten across the line by PNG-born Toea Wisil. She followed with some decent runs in the Caribbean but then had flat performances in Europe in the Diamond League.

“I wouldn’t say it was a shock [at nationals] but each race presents certain challenges and for me there was a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes and off track that looking back have played a bigger part than I initially realised,” she said.

“Regardless you only have to run well at one major championships and that is only once a year, whether it is the Olympics, the world championships or the Commonwealth Games, they are the big ones you really try to focus on.

“Obviously it’s nice to run well in every race but at the same time it can be unrealistic, not every race is going to be perfect.”

Of some comfort to her heading into London is that she also tore her hamstring twice last year before Rio and still found her best performance on the day it mattered most. She hopes for the same in London.

“Everyone keeps reminding me that I’m going to have a really long career and that every year is going to be different, sometimes you will be injury-riddled for a whole year, some years will be tough and you might not be racing as well but as I said earlier and I will continue to say until after world champs, you only have to run fast once.”

After returning to Phoenix with her training group and working on some very specific improvements she feels she is ready.

“I don’t want to say I’m back because I never went anywhere … I am around … I only have to run fast once and that’s at the worlds.”

The science teacher who let Pokemon Go in the classroom

12.12.2018, Comments Off on The science teacher who let Pokemon Go in the classroom, 苏州桑拿会所, by .

When Pokemon Go took over children’s screens last year and most teachers were struggling to keep it out of the classroom, a school on the NSW central coast decided to incorporate the popular game into their science lessons.

After students at the International Football School in Kariong have “caught” the pokemon in the botanical garden using the augmented reality app on their phone, their science teacher will talk about the plants around them.

Students at the sports-focused school, which runs from kindergarten to year 12, are also encouraged to play other popular video games including Clash of the Clans and Ingress in the classroom to build their communication and teamwork skills.

“We’re using what the kids already like to do to get to our outcomes, the games are a conduit for discussions about other things,” the school’s head of curriculum Dean Groom said.

About half of n students are now using video games in the classroom, up from one-third in 2015, according to new national survey findings in the 2018 Digital report.

About 70 per cent of parents believe video games can be effective for teaching and motivating students at school, 64 per cent believe they can help students pay attention and 62 per cent believe they can help schools remain relevant.

The report’s lead author, Jeff Brand, said the growing acceptance of video games in schools is linked to a broader demographic of ns playing games at home.

About 93 per cent of households have gaming devices and 67 per cent of ns play video games. Of these, 77 per cent are aged 18 or over and the average age of a video game player is now 34, up from 24 in 2005.

“Kids and teachers in schools both play video games and 87 per cent of parents play games themselves,” Dr Brand said. “It makes them aware of [the potential of video games] and more conversations exist around game playing.”

Dr Brand said there is potential for games to be used “substantially” in the classroom.

“Ultimately, many things we learn through textbooks we will ultimately learn through video games,” he said.

“Most major textbook publishers now have in-house game developers. Some of the stuff that works best is what compels students and attracts their attention.”

Michelle Blight, a year 12 physics teacher at St George Christian School in Sydney’s south, is now using a video game while teaching the space component of the HSC curriculum.

“There’s a game called Kerbal Space Program that helps then understand the different aspects of rocket launch and re-entry,” Mrs Blight said.

Mrs Blight said she also uses video games in physics lessons for years 9, 10 and 11.

“Where [games] match curriculum objectives they can be quite useful because of the motivational aspect,” she said.

“Kids don’t realise they’re learning things while they’re playing.”

Mrs Blight said teachers and parents have become more accepting of video games in the classroom in recent years.

“It’s about us becoming more familiar with these opportunities. But I’ve spoken to people with all different opinions.

“Some are really keen about games and think they help equip students with not only content material but computer and IT skills as well, while others are concerned more about how much screen time students are engaging with.”

How a simple visit to a chemist for medicines containing codeine just got a lot harder

12.12.2018, Comments Off on How a simple visit to a chemist for medicines containing codeine just got a lot harder, 苏州桑拿会所, by .

Community support: Pharmacist Judy Plunkett is warning the community about plans to have patients get a prescription from their GP for medicines containing codeine.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

The decision to upschedule medicines containing codeine will see patients required to visit their GP for a prescription or a hospital’s accident and emergency department.

The Therapeutic Goods Administration decision comes into effect on February 1, 2018.

Pharmacist Judy Plunkett, who is also a member of The Pharmacy Guild NSW, says the decision will cause chaos, choke up GP waiting rooms and put added pressure on hospital outpatient departments.

“This decision will create a huge problem and it will be the people with acute pain who will sufferthe most,” she says.

The medicines that will be affected include, paracetamol + codeine 500mg + <15mg which includes Panadeine, Panadeine Extra and Mersyndol; Ibuprofen + codeine 200mg + <15mg which includes Nurofen Plus and Panafen Plus; Aspirin + codeine 300mg + <15mg which includes Aspalgin, Codis Disprin Forte; and cough and cold medicines, which includes Codral Original Cold and Flu, Demazin day and night cold and flu.

These products are currently available over the counter after speaking to a pharmacist, Mrs Plunkett said.

“My pharmacy is open seven days and we treat acute patients every single day of the week.

“There are more than one million people that use codeine products responsibly.

“Pharmacists are experts at managing this generalised form of pain and the community understands that.”

Mrs Plunkett said pharmacists understand the nuanced treatment systems available to address the level of pain experienced without the patient getting addicted.

The pharmacist said the guild have been proactive in the area of recording codeine product use for some time though a system called MedsASSIST.She said there had been a 70 per cent take up of the system.

It is understood the TGA decision to upschedule the medicines was taken because they can be addictive and are being used inappropriately by some patients with chronic pain.

Mrs Plunkett said The Pharmacy Guild of and its NSW counterpart will tackle the issueon a number of fronts.

“We will be asking the state government to allow pharmacists to use an ‘except when’ situation. This would enable a pharmacist to provide a three day course of pain relief to patients suffering acute pain.

“This would also be in conjunction with 100 per cent mandatory MedsASSIST live recording. We would also have pharmacists undergo additional training in acute pain management,” she said.

“If we cannot get this ‘except when’ clause introduced then we will be asking the state government to push back the February 2018 deadline.”

She also suggested the community should start lobbying their local MP.

Mrs Plunkett said a 100 per cent use of the on-line live recording system would also help monitor any concerns about so-called doctor shopping.

“We can also block the sale of these medicines and send the patient back to their doctor if we see any health issues or over-use,” she added.

The pharmacist said the guild’s push was based around better pain management and providing the best health outcome to the patient.

“It’s using technology and finding a modern world solution to stop people abusing drugs and provide proper monitoring.”
