‘Big Fella’ jailed over NSW drug syndicate ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

A frontman for a sophisticated Sydney drug syndicate dubbed The Rock Act has been jailed for at least three-and-a-half years.
出售老域名

William Siryani, who called himself “The Big Fella”, has pleaded guilty in the NSW District Court to supplying a prohibited drug on an ongoing basis and knowingly directing the activities of a criminal group in 2016.

Acting Judge Paul Conlon jailed the 34-year-old on Monday, noting the gang duped its many customers who thought they were buying cocaine but who were supplied with cheaper methamphetamine.

The undercover police operation, which monitored Siryani and about 17 co-accused, intercepted 11,500 voice calls and 48,500 text messages during a three-month sting.

Investigators found Siryani and other managers directed more than 10 drivers or “runners” seven days a week to deliver 0.5-gram bags of methamphetamine, sold as $200 bags of cocaine to unsuspecting customers.

As well as making sales and deliveries The Rock Club also sent out promotional text messages.

“Hey guys, we’re out and about tonight. Don’t miss out on your Front Row Rock Show tickets @$200 each ticket. P.S. Have a great day,” one read.

Siryani previously told the judge he spent all the profits he made on his 24-gram $6000-a-day cocaine habit, a claim the prosecutor submitted was an exaggeration.

Judge Conlon noted Siryani was suffering from substance-abuse disorder and depression at the time.

The judge jailed him for six years with a non-parole period of three years six months.

“This court sees on a daily basis the extent of the devastation caused to individuals and families by the dissemination of drugs in the community,” he said.

Fans couldn’t help but notice Melbourne Victory goalkeeper Lawrence Thomas’two head bandages, following run-ins withrampaging Roy O’Donovan,the Jetsstriker.

It’s not that the fans wished any harm to Lawrence, but they wouldn’t have minded if his arms had been bandaged uptoo, mummy-style, to stop him making saves.

Ross said there’d been a bit of talk around Newcastle cafes about the controversial offside goal. He had heard the suggestion that the matter couldbecome “a bit like the Kennedy assassination”.

Some punters found it hard to believe that the technology failed right at the time that Melbourne scored the offside goal.

But Ross is more rational. He doesn’t believe it was aconspiracy.

However, he was upset that Victory fans heldaloft a banner at the game, which said: “5000 [Melbourne fans] in your country town, we’re here to take the crown”.

Ross thought this requiredacomeback with thisditty: “Melbourne Victory offsiders will get no pity when next they visit our great global city”.

He noted that Melbourne “used to be called Bleak City”and was considered“as boring as batshit untilthey discovered coffee”.

And lastly, he declared: “Ourcoffee is as good as theirs”.

Airport security cash in federal budget ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

Peter Dutton has spoken to Qantas CEO Alan Joyce and other airlines about airport security.The alleged plot to put a bomb on a plane leaving Sydney airport last year has sparked an aviation security announcement in Tuesday’s federal budget.
出售老域名

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton wouldn’t confirm if funding for full body scanners would be provided for airports, but said the alleged bomb plot raised serious concerns.

“We are worried about the settings at our domestic airports,” Mr Dutton told reporters on Monday.

“Obviously there is a different security setting at our international airports where do we have full body scanners.”

Khaled Mahmoud Khayat, 49, of Lakemba, and Mahmoud Khayat, 33, of Punchbowl, on Friday each pleaded not guilty to two counts of acting in preparation for, or planning, a terrorist attack.

They were allegedly told to smuggle a bomb hidden inside a meat grinder onto an Etihad plane due to depart from Sydney for Abu Dhabi on July 15 last year.

Mr Dutton has spoken to Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce and other airlines about improving security.

“We know that airports, forecourts within the airports, are targets for terrorist organisations around the world. We have seen that in Europe,” Mr Dutton said.

“We’ve looked at different ways in which we can provide support, particularly to regional airports, but the detail will be held for the budget.”

Complex study of Tillers’ work on show at University Gallery ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

MELANCHOLY LANDSCAPE V: One of the works included in a survey exhibition of Imants Tillers at the University Gallery.Imants Tillers has long been recognised as a major presence in the Australian art world. So, to find a survey of 40 years of his paintings at the University Gallery until May 26 was a virtually unheralded surprise, particularly when told that these dozen large works from his private collection arrived in boxes in a family station wagon.
出售老域名

The paintings, some wall-filling, are assemblages of small commercial canvas boards, attached to the wall with Velcro. They are painted individually to a complex plan and are numbered in sequence, started with the first composite piece in 1981 and now approaching 10,000 components. Examples are in all major Australian galleries and have represented Australia in many international exhibitions.

They have earned a new relevance for painting in an increasingly complex world, layering images and associations from many sources, with the physical disjunction between the panels lending animation and a deceptive sense of spontaneity.

The images have many origins, appropriated from literary sources andfrom other artists. Irony is never far away. The neo-expressionist East German painters, superstars of post-war nihilism, have been a rich field and the exhibition contains anarchic quotes from Baselitz and Polke, still powerful in today’s less frantic Europe. Classical Surreal borrowings add further resonance.

More recently, Tillers incorporates passages of quoted text and lists of evocative names, including relics from disappearing Aboriginal languages.An indigenous presence has long been important for the artist and there have been shared projects with Aboriginal painters. He sees their plight as parallel to the cultural displacement and alienation of the migrant experience, coming to terms with a new homeland while still weighted with baggage from the old. Tillers still has strong links with his parents’ native Latvia and is assembling work for a major survey exhibition in the Latvian National Museum of Art in Riga.

The Australian landscape has become increasingly dominant, layering historic process, including the ethos of its earliest inhabitants, with contemporary concerns. A wall-filling work in the exhibition starts with a borrowed panorama of sparse hills by Fred Williams. It is overlapped by borrowings from Rosalie Gascoigne’s celebrated sliced iridescent road signs cut up into abstract shapes. They gain new meaning from a litany of names of almost forgotten historical gold fields and famous mines, setting up an allegory of our layered landscape both to read and see; metaphysics vying with brush strokes.

Another work subverts an opulent flower painting by Adrian Feint, its still life vanitas suggestion amplified by a dark star of radiating spikes. Intimations of mortality in metallic geometry extend into a stellar time frame.

The large number of visitors to the University Gallery I noted during my visit confirms the importance of this opportunity to study the development of a major contemporary artist.

Exercise a must for all cancer patients ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

There’s now indisputable evidence that exercise is an essential component of cancer treatment.Exercise is the best medicine and should be prescribed to all cancer patients, some of Australia’s leading experts say.
出售老域名

The Clinical Oncology Society of Australia has launched its position statement on the role of exercise alongside surgery, chemotherapy and radiation in cancer care.

Endorsed by a group of 25 influential health and cancer organisations, including Cancer Council Australia, it is the world’s first ever researcher-led call for exercise to be an essential component of treatment.

Lead author, Professor Prue Cormie from the Australian Catholic University says the statement is based on “indisputable” evidence.

“Really we are at the stage where the science is telling us that withholding exercise from cancer patients can be harmful,” Professor Cormie said.

“Exercise is the best medicine someone with cancer can take in addition to their standard cancer treatments. That’s because we know now that people who exercise regularly experience fewer and less severe treatment side-effects; cancer related fatigue, mental distress, quality of life.”

They also have a lower risk of their cancer coming back or dying from the disease, said Professor Cormie.

People with cancer are recommended to do two to three resistance sessions a week and at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise, or such as walking, cycling or swimming.

Gone are the days of wrapping cancer patients in “cotton wool”, says David Speakman, Chief Medical Officer at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

“Our attitudes to treating cancer, what it takes to give people their best chance at survival, have to change. All cancer patients will benefit from an exercise prescription,” Dr Speakman said.

Nicole Cooper, 33, was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer last year, and believes a big reason why she is still alive is because of the exercise regime she followed while undergoing treatment.

“When I received a terminal cancer diagnosis, I was prescribed two potentially lifesaving cancer treatments: chemotherapy and exercise,” she said.

“A year later, I am in remission, having taken just as much exercise as I have chemotherapy,” Ms Cooper said.

Federal health panel’s PFAS report dismisses cancer link ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

An independent health panel established by the federal government has found PFAS exposure can leadto a range of health “effects”, including reduced kidney function and hormonal changes, but that the level of these effects is “within normal ranges” for the whole population.
出售老域名

The Expert Health Panel for PFAS, after reviewing the “limited” amount of availablescientific research on PFAS contamination, found these health effects also included increased levels of cholesterol and uric acid in the blood; alterations in some indicators of immune response; altered levels of thyroid hormones and sex hormones; later age for starting menstruation in girls; earlier menopause; andlower birth weight in babies.

But the report,which was issued on Monday by Australia’s chief medical officer, Professor Brendan Murphy, said there was “mostly limited or no evidence for any link with human disease from these observed differences”.

“Importantly, there is no current evidence that supports a large impact on a person’s health as a result of high levels of PFAS exposure,” it said.

“However, the panel noted that, even though the evidence for PFAS exposure and links to health effects is very weak and inconsistent, important health effects for individuals exposed to PFAS cannot be ruled out based on the current evidence.”

Residents at Williamtown and Oakey, Queensland,have launched a class action against the Department of Defence over PFAS contamination from air bases.

ThePFAS panel concluded there was “no current evidence that suggests an increase in overall cancer risk”.

A Newcastle Herald investigation last year found 50 cases of cancer in 15 years on Cabbage Tree Road, which intersects with anetwork of open drains carrying contaminated run-offfrom Williamtown RAAF base.

Read the Herald’s in-depth coverage

TheExpert Health Panel for PFAS,comprised of experts in environmental health, toxicology, epidemiology and public health, was established in October 2017 to advise the government on the potential health impacts associated with PFAS exposureand identify priority areas for research.

It considered evidence from Australian and international scientific research andthe views of the public in forming its advice to the government.It met three times between October 2017 and February 2018 and conducted out-of-session work.

The panel’s report has been provided to the National Health and Medical Research Council and will be used to inform the $12.5 millionNational Research Program into the Human Health Effects of Prolonged Exposure to PFAS.

In February,NSW Health issued the results of itsinvestigation into the Cabbage Tree Road cancer cases, saying it “does not indicate evidence of a cancer cluster in Williamtown”.

That study was slammedas “truly meaningless” and a “complete farce” by Laborafter revelations that about80per cent of the population it sampled did not live in the contaminated zone and that at least 18 of the 50 cancer cases uncoveredby the Heraldinvestigation had been excluded.

The federal Department of Health said the latest findings supported the Environmental Health Standing Committee’s advice that there wasno consistent evidence that exposure to PFAS causedadverse human health effects.

However, given the chemicals continuedto persist in humans and the environment, exposure to them should be minimised.

The panel said the evidence did not support specific screening or health interventions for highly exposed groups,except for research purposes.

It also concluded there was insufficient evidence of causation between PFAS exposure and adverse health outcomes.

The panel recommended future research focus on long-term studies, adding PFAS exposure to existing research.

“The Australian Government is committed to supporting communities and responding effectively to PFAS contamination,” the health department said.

“This commitment has included reducing exposure from contaminated drinking water, providing mental health and counselling services, funding an epidemiological study into potential health effects and providing access to free blood tests for PFAS on a voluntary basis.”

The full report is available on theDepartment of Health website here.

Cahill a ‘special case’ for World Cup ( admin posted on April 27th, 2020 )

Tim Cahill has been named in the Socceroos’ 32-man preliminary squad for the World Cup in RussiaSocceroos coach Bert van Marwijk has stamped talisman Tim Cahill and uncapped teenage gun Daniel Arzani as players who can “make a difference” at the World Cup.
出售老域名

And the Dutchman offered a strong hint Cahill could well be on the way to Russia next month for a fourth consecutive World Cup, labelling the 38-year-old striker “a special case” after naming the country’s all-time leading scorer in his extended 32-man squad.

Croatian-born 21-year-old right-back Fran Karacic is the shock selection while established core Mile Jedinak, Aaron Mooy, Mat Ryan, Mathew Leckie, Robbie Kruse, Massimo Luongo and Tomi Juric have all been retained.

Striker Jamie Maclaren’s recent goal-scoring exploits in Scotland won him a recall alongside goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak, Alex Gersbach and Apostolos Giannou.

Cahill is currently serving a suspension with Millwall and has played just 63 minutes over 10 games for the English Championship side since leaving the A-League in search of more game time.

His last club goal came for Melbourne City more than a year ago, though his brace against Syria in October saved Australia’s World Cup hopes and booked the successful play-off berth against Honduras.

Those heroics were undoubtedly part of the reason van Marwijk was willing to admit something about Cahill no prior national-team coach has acknowledged.

“He is a special case … he is special in everything,” van Marwijk said.

“He is 38 and maybe one of the best-ever players for Australia. He is a very good striker.

“He doesn’t play (at the moment), maybe five or 10 or 20 minutes. Also he has a problem that he is suspended and I have to take a decision whether to take him to the world championship.

“He is not 19 like Arzani – he’s twice as old – but is also a player who can make a difference.

“He will not be nervous if we play in front of 80,000 people.”

Arzani, meanwhile, will wait nervously for next week’s announcement of the 26-man squad that will meet in Turkey for an intensive pre-World Cup training camp before van Marwijk names his final 23-strong squad in June.

The Melbourne City winger wasn’t picked for Australia’s recent friendlies despite setting the A-League alight after breaking into the City first team in January, and van Marwijk revealed he’d wanted too see more of the rapidly rising youngster.

He said Iran’s interest in capping him had nothing to do with the decision.

“Nobody told me not to nominate him because of this, but I hope that when we are nominating him he will play for Australia,” he said.

“He’s playing games, before March he didn’t play every game. At 19 he has to learn a lot so I think it was normal (not to pick him).

“He is young and must learn a lot but he is a player who can make a difference. I like players who make a difference.

“Maybe a world championship is too early for him, but I will not hesitate to nominate him when I think that he can mean something for us, and can make a difference maybe in the last 10 or 15 minutes.

“I am happy he is in the squad.”

PROVISIONAL SQUAD:

Goalkeepers: Brad Jones, Mitch Langerak, Mat Ryan, Danny Vukovic

Defenders: Josh Risdon, Fran Karacic, Josh Brillante, Trent Sainsbury, Milos Degenek, Bailey Wright, Matt Jurman, Aleksandar Susnjar, Mark Milligan, Aziz Behich, Alex Gersbach, James Meredith

Midfielders: Mile Jedinak, Aaron Mooy, Jackson Irvine, Massimo Luongo, Tom Rogic, James Troisi, Dimi Petratos

Forwards: Mat Leckie, Andrew Nabbout, Robbie Kruse, Nikita Rukavytsya, Tomi Juric, Tim Cahill, Jamie Maclaren, Apo Giannou and Daniel Arzani.
