Kerr writing new chapter in Matildas story

28/03/2019 Posted by admin

Matildas star Sam Kerr expects a nail-biting contest against Japan in the Asian Cup final.For Sam Kerr and the Matildas, there’s one positive to take away from their below-par Asian Cup semi-final outing against Thailand.
Nanjing Night Net

They won.

They needed an injury-time equaliser and a penalty shootout against the lowly-ranked Thais, but they won.

“We found a way,” she told AAP.

“It was frustrating. A frustrating day. When people start getting frustrated, myself included, that’s a tough way to play football.

“It’s two games in a row we’ve scored after the 80th minute. That’s not easy.

“The main thing is we’ve made the final for the third consecutive time.”

And that’s where the Matildas are drawing a line under their shocking semi-final, now putting all their energy into Saturday morning’s (AEST) final with Japan.

Kerr said any video analysis of the 2-2 (3-1) dogfight win was likely to be highly selective ahead of the final to ensure the mood stays positive.

And why not?

It is, after all, the highest honour open to the Matildas short of the World Cup and the Olympics.

“Any time you get to play in a final, everyone’s buzzing. Especially playing against Japan, one of the best teams in the world,” she said.

“We’re well up for it. We’re excited and this is what we came here for. We’re pumped.”

Kerr has played her role in the continental rivalry with Japan.

She found the much-needed equaliser in their group stage clash earlier this week, and scored a hat-trick in their previous meeting; a 4-2 win on the way to their Tournament of Nations success.

Australia also prevented the former World Champions from reaching the 2016 Olympic Games with a 3-1 win in Japan.

But the Nadeshiko have their fair share of triumphs; knocking the Matildas out of the 2015 World Cup and claiming the 2014 Asian Cup final, both with a 1-0 scoreline.

Kerr predicts another tight and tense affair.

“It’s another chapter in the rivalry,” she said.

“We got the better of them in the Tournament of Nations. They got the better of us other times.

“This is a new game and none of those games will affect this one.

“Japan are such a good team that I think it will be super tight, especially when we’ve both played four games in two weeks.

“I reckon one goal will be enough to win it.”

NSW train bosses warned to delay timetable

28/03/2019 Posted by admin

Rail commuters faced two consecutive days of chaos in January when the system went into meltdown.NSW transport bosses were warned to delay the introduction of Sydney’s new train timetable due to “substantial risk of failing to deliver the level of performance which the public will expect” before major system meltdowns.
Nanjing Night Net

A secret report, prepared by UK consultants and obtained by Fairfax Media under Freedom of Information laws, said there were “simply too many underlying issues which have not been fixed”.

It urged Transport for NSW to delay changes until early this year.

The report emerged as Sydney commuters on Thursday morning contended with disruptions on several city train routes due to “urgent overhead wiring repairs” at Flemington.

The Transport Management Centre said the T2, T3, T5 and T8 lines all faced delays.

“Sydney Trains is providing a regular service with some express trains making additional stops to help customers get to their destination,” a Sydney Trains spokesman said in a statement.

“Buses are supplementing affected services at Bankstown, Lidcombe, Glenfield, Campbelltown, Clyde and Liverpool.”

The new timetable was introduced in November 2017, but in January commuters faced two consecutive days of chaos when the system went into meltdown.

Around 100 services last month were cut to make the network more reliable after a high-level review.

The document was reportedly handed to Transport for NSW in March 2017.

It warned there was little room for systems to fail before the service might “disintegrate substantially”.

Sydney Trains executive director Tony Eid told Fairfax Media the document was outdated and written about a draft of the timetable. There were nine further versions, he claimed.

Rail, Tram and Bus Union NSW Secretary Alex Claassens said anyone with insight into the network knew the timetable wasn’t going to work.

“The government didn’t consult with the workers – the people who know about how the systems work,” he said in a statement.

“Had that happened, maybe we wouldn’t have ended up in this mess.”

Livestream trouble for US plane passenger

28/03/2019 Posted by admin

A passenger who livestreamed a stricken Southwest Airlines flight has been trolled online.A man who was onboard a stricken Southwest Airlines flight in the United States, on which one woman died, has been trolled on social media for livestreaming what he thought may have been the last minutes of his life.
Nanjing Night Net

Marty Martinez began streaming the chaos on Facebook after an engine exploded midair sending pieces of shrapnel into the plane, killing 43-year-old bank executive Jennifer Riordan who was partially pulled through a shattered window on Tuesday.

Martinez said he opened his laptop and used his credit card to pay for WiFi to film the event, while panicked passengers grabbed oxygen masks around him, because he wanted to communicate with his loved ones but his decision has been lambasted online.

“Trying to contact loved ones is one thing, but to morbidly video and take pictures to post publicly is completely disgusting. Evidently the wrong person was taken from that flight,” Dennis Miller said on Facebook in a posting that included colourful language to describe Martinez.

Many social media users defended Martinez’s use of Facebook Live, but some said he violated passengers’ privacy and sought cheap fame. Others said he was selfish to focus on messaging instead of on the critically injured passenger a few rows away.

“You represent the worst of social media,” Tom Burke said on Facebook.

The event illustrates thorny issues facing platforms such as Google’s YouTube, Twitter’s Periscope and Facebook, already under pressure over privacy and news curating, over hosting live-streaming material.

Facebook did not respond to a request for comment on Martinez’s posts.

Earlier this month, Facebook vice president Fidji Simo talked about the power of live streaming.

“Live can be a powerful tool in connecting and supporting communities during moments of crisis,” Simo said in a post.

Since 2016, the average number of daily Facebook Live broadcasts has doubled year over year, with 3.5 billion live broadcasts since then.

No 60 Minutes defamation payout for father

01/03/2019 Posted by admin

Mouhammad Tabbaa won’t receive any payout after losing most of his case against 60 Minutes.An “uncaring, brutal and irresponsible” father will not receive a cent in damages after losing most of his defamation case against 60 Minutes, a Sydney judge has ruled.
Nanjing Night Net

Divorced couple Mouhammad and Pamela Tabbaa are facing a hefty legal bill after a jury accepted as true their daughter’s 2014 interview about being kidnapped at 13 and held captive by her relatives in Syria for almost five years.

But the NSW Supreme Court jury in December also found that a Nine Network news item conveyed an untrue meaning that Mr Tabbaa forced Nadia Tabbaa to marry her cousin at 13 and sold her off to her cousin’s family in Syria.

Justice Desmond Fagan on Thursday ruled the father wasn’t entitled to any payout due to his already damaged reputation and his recovery of compensation from another media organisation for substantially publishing the same story.

The accepted circumstances “portray him as an uncaring, brutal and irresponsible parent who abandoned his child to others at all times”, the judge said.

Nadia Tabbaa’s time in Damascus was characterised by “denial of education, serfdom, religious indoctrination, physical and mental abuse and periodic exhibition as a marriage prospect through her mid-teens”.

The jury accepted Ms Tabbaa’s evidence detailing traumatic events including being forced to undergo a virginity test in Jordan and being subjected to violence and abuse from her father who threatened to slit her throat after she escaped back to Sydney when she was 18.

“Ms Tabbaa’s evidence was impressive and consistently supported by the defendants’ other witnesses,” the judge said.

But her father’s denials were “strained and implausible” and his chief supporting witness, Pamela Tabbaa, was “clearly untruthful”.

The judge said the jury’s failure to find that Mr Tabbaa forced his daughter to marry her second cousin was not inconsistent with her evidence that she took part in a form of marriage according to local custom.

No measurable compensable hurt to his feelings would flow from the false portrayals of his forcing her to marry at 13 and selling her off, as the other findings showed “a man completely lacking compassion or sense of responsibility for his daughter”.

He was interested in her “only to the extent of fearing she might infringe his preoccupying concern with her chastity or that she might in some other respect disobey his wishes”.

The parents are appealing against the jury’s decisions.

Broncos NRL coach Bennett in media walkout

01/03/2019 Posted by admin

Wayne Bennett asked media to back off when quizzed about his coaching future before walking away.Wayne Bennett has walked out on a media conference after he taking exception to questions about his coaching future.
Nanjing Night Net

Not the biggest media fan at the best of times, Bennett lost patience and left on Thursday after being queried about a report linking Melbourne’s Craig Bellamy to Brisbane.

“I am coach here next year – that could change. But if you don’t want to talk about the footy, I will leave it at that,” said Bennett before walking off.

On the eve of the Broncos’ clash with Melbourne, the News Corp Australia report claimed the Storm’s off-contract coach Bellamy had not ruled out moving next year to Brisbane.

Bennett, 68, is off contract at the end of 2019 but his future has been questioned with the club reportedly making a play for North Queensland’s Paul Green before he re-signed this week with the Cowboys.

In the report, Bellamy said that he had not “ruled out any option” including becoming Broncos coach or even taking up a coaching consultancy role at Brisbane.

Bellamy first cut his teeth 20 years ago as a Broncos assistant under Bennett.

Before Bennett left the media conference, reporters did have enough time to ask him for his thoughts on Bellamy as a potential Broncos coach.

“You had Paul Green here a month ago – now we have moved on,” Bennett said.

“We have a great game of footy tomorrow. Let’s leave the rest of it for you guys to speculate – I certainly don’t want to buy into the rubbish.

“Nothing is permanent; nothing is temporary – even for coaches. I am coach here next year for as far as I know.”

Asked if he could work with Bellamy as a Brisbane co-coach, Bennett said: “I am not responding to any of your speculation.

“You have to get on shows and talk for hours. At the end of the day, you have nothing to talk about so you make it up.

“There is a great game of footy tomorrow; I will talk to you about that.”

Quizzed further about Bellamy, Bennett clearly had had enough.

“Thanks guys, you had your chance,” he said as he walked away.

Bennett did confirm prop Matt Lodge (ribs) had been cleared to play.

Cronulla recruit Jack Bird remains in the Broncos’ halves with Kodi Nikorima (hip) starting on the bench.

Melbourne (5th; 3-3 record) have won their past seven games against Brisbane (8th; 3-3) at Suncorp Stadium.

STATS THAT MATTER:

* Brisbane’s win percentage against Melbourne (30.2 per cent) is their worst against any team in club history, winning 13 of 43 and just two of the past 15

* The Storm are being awarded the most penalties of any team this season (averaging 10.5 per game), while the Broncos receive the least (6.3pg)

* Melbourne are making the most errors of any team this season, averaging 13.5 per game

Aloisi’s Roar steeled for A-League finals

01/03/2019 Posted by admin

Coach John Aloisi will lead a resurgent Brisbane Roar into the A-League finals series.There have been better times to be John Aloisi – one memorable World Cup qualifying moment springs to mind – but not many than right now.
Nanjing Night Net

Aloisi leads his resurgent Brisbane Roar side into an A-League final against Melbourne City on Friday night.

The Roar snuck into finals in sixth place, but with a body of work over the last three months that suggests anything is possible.

They’ve won seven of their last 11 matches, a record only Sydney FC can match.

They were last-out winners at AAMI Park, ending a four-year hoodoo at the ground for the club.

And with several stars enjoying a return to fitness, there’s enough evidence to suggest the Roar could be a serious finals wildcard.

Aloisi told AAP a mid-season heart-to-heart with his players – then sitting two points off the bottom of the table, with just 13 points from 16 games – laid the basis for their turnaround.

“Eleven games ago we sat down as a group and we discussed what we believed we could still do,” he said.

“Everyone said we believed we could still make finals.

“We knew we had a bad start. A terrible off-season and pre-season with plenty of stuff going on and off the pitch.

“No one made excuses. We just stuck at it, made sure that when we got players back fit we performed well and picked up points. That’s what we did.”

Aloisi said their round 20 away win over Melbourne Victory was a turning point.

“It was the big boost. Matt McKay said ‘I can’t remember the last game we’ve won here’,” he said.

“He was so excited. I could tell then it was happening. Being the only team to beat Sydney FC at Allianz added to it.”

Against City, Aloisi predicts an “open and entertaining game”, name-checking Daniel Arzani and Bruno Fornaroli as creative forces that will be tough to contain.

But he says the Roar’s weapons will also leave their mark after growing into the season.

“Henrique’s getting fit. (Eric) Bautheac understands the league, like (Massimo) Maccarone,” he said.

“(Thomas) Kristensen has been massive for us, he has been driving the midfield.

“And (Ivan) Franjic came in late but now he’s looking strong. They’re all looking strong.”

With all that, there’s plenty of reasons for Brisbane to be up for their elimination final.

Aloisi says it out-weighs the fact that his day of reckoning comes against his former side.

“It doesn’t make a difference at all for me. It’s all about Brisbane Roar,” he said.

“We’re fully focused, ready, and we can’t wait.”

Vandals hit historic Gallipoli Club in lead-up to Anzac Day

Vandals hit historic Gallipoli Club in lead-up to Anzac Day TweetFacebookBEAUMONT Street’s Gallipoli Legion Club is calling for public help to find those responsible for graffiti scrawled across its facade a week out from Anzac Day.
Nanjing Night Net

The club posted photos and CCTV footage on its website, deploring the “disrespectful low life delinquents” responsible.

“ANZAC Day is 1 week away and this is how some youths treat the club which was built by the men of ANZAC,” chief executive Michael Cleary wrote in a social media post.

The Gallipoli Legion Club was built in the 1950s after the Gallipoli Legion of ANZAC’s Newcastle branch president, Jack Buxton, won permission to host the first race meeting in Australia held on Anzac Day.

After three years, the proceeds from the day were used to buy a property, build a clubhouse and seek a liquor licence.

The club officially opened in November 1955. Today it hosts live music and functions.

The Gallipoli Club vandalism is not the first time graffiti has struck on the eve of Anzac Day.

In 2015 veterans , police and the public blasted a vandal who wrote their name over those of the fallen on the Anzac Walk at Strzelecki Lookout.

Hunter Street businesses have also reported being struck by vandals, with signage marked in recent days.

Labor wants live sheep export suspension

28/01/2019 Posted by admin

A former Liberal minister wants laws to ban live sheep exports after the death of 2,400 animals.Labor has called for live sheep exports to be suspended immediately pending the outcome of a review into the northern summer trade.
Nanjing Night Net

A veterinarian-led audit is due to hand down a final report by May 11, which the government says will be before the highest-risk months for extreme heat in the Middle East.

But Labor has demanded no new shipments before the findings are handed down.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten believes the review is unlikely to say the northern summer trade is sustainable, but will wait for the findings.

“Until that happens, northern summer shipments of sheep not already beyond the farmgate should be suspended,” Mr Shorten said in a statement.

It comes after former Liberal minister Sussan Ley pledged to next month introduce a private members’ bill to phase out live sheep exports to the Middle East.

Ms Ley, a former farmer from NSW, said it was “inherently impossible” to transport sheep to the Middle East during the northern summer in a humane way.

“I want to see this live sheep trade permanently cease,” she told Sky News on Thursday.

WA Labor backbencher Josh Wilson also broke ranks with his party on Thursday, saying he had a long-held view the trade should end.

“There are a lot of people across the parliament who when they look at the evidence around the long-haul live export of sheep recognise that this can’t continue,” Mr Wilson told Sky News.

But Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack rejected calls for a ban, citing the repercussion of the Gillard government’s “knee-jerk” decision to shut down the live cattle trade in 2011.

“I don’t believe that we should ban the trade holus-bolus,” he told the National Press Club.

Mr Shorten urged the Turnbull government to adopt Labor’s plan to appoint an independent inspector to oversee animal welfare in the industry.

That proposal has the support of the Australian Livestock Exporters’ Council.

“The community wants it, the industry needs it, and animals deserve it,” Mr Shorten said.

His deputy Tanya Plibersek would like to see live exports phased out over time, while opposition frontbencher Ed Husic believes Australia needs to “seriously consider” moving away from the trade.

ALEC voted in Brisbane on Wednesday to establish an independent inspector-general to observe the treatment of livestock onboard ships, ending years of opposition to the policy.

It comes after shocking footage emerged last week of sheep dying in inhumane conditions on a ship bound for the Middle East, sparking outrage.

The Greens and independent Derryn Hinch have been vocal supporters of a ban on live exports, while his fellow crossbench senator David Leyonhjelm has backed the industry to continue.

Meanwhile, Agriculture Minister David Littleproud has announced the terms of reference for a separate review into the capabilities, investigative capacity and culture of his department.

The review, by former public servant Philip Moss, will also consider the idea of an independent inspector and is due to report by August 24.
