I have never been so wet in my life.

This was the thought running through my head as I walked away from Domain Stadium on Friday night completely drenched, with my water-filled shoes making an ungainly squelching sound with every step.

But, it was quickly followed by another – it was worth it to see Fleetwood Mac in concert again.

The last time the band came to Perth in 2009 was the first concert my wife and I watched together, not long after we had started dating.

So when an opportunity arose to review Fleetwood Mac’s return to Perth I jumped at the opportunity, thinking it was a chance to relive some wonderful memories.

However, I wasn’t prepared for the wild night which lay ahead – filled with sizzling guitar, mystical vocals, die-hard fans and never-ending rain.

No sooner had we taken our seats when Fleetwood Mac’s smash hit The Chain lit up the stadium, much to the crowd’s delight.

From there the band’s three main songwriters shared the spotlight with Christine McVie welcomed back to Perth with a rendition of You Make Loving Fun, followed by Stevie Nicks’ Dreams and Lindsay Buckingham’s Second Hand News.

As the heavens opened it also rained down hits with Rhiannon, Everywhere, Tusk, Sara and Say You Love Me enchanting the 25,000 fans who turned out for the show.

Then the two McVies, Nicks and drummer Mick Fleetwood vanished from the stage while Buckingham delivered an outstanding solo, guitar-only, version of Big Love.

The rest of the band returned in style and the hits continued and then the rain started to ease up as Nicks explained to fans the story behind the next song Gypsy.

As the song progressed Nicks twirled on screen mesmerizingly almost in what looked like a rain dance.

And, as if on cue, the rain started bucketing down heavier than before, ending any hope concert goers had of leaving Domain Stadium without being completely soaked.

Although no-one in the crowd seemed to mind as they were straight up out of their seats to dance as Little Lies, another of Christine McVie’s creations, resonated around the stadium.

Nicks’ mystical twirling continued as the band launched in to Gold Dust Woman and then the focus shifted to Buckingham who showed he has lost none of his guitar prowess with a stunning guitar solo to finish off I’m So Afraid.

Buckingham received rambunctious cheers for his bewitching effort which, turned to an even bigger roar as Fleetwood Mac quickly moved into Go Your Own Way to finish off their main set.

The upbeat tune lifted any remaining seated fans to their feet and when the song finished the band received a standing ovation who’s enthusiasm was never dampened despite the pouring rain all night long.

Christine McVie’s return to the the band, after 16 years of semi-retirement, appeared seamless and her vocals added another layer to the Mac’s allure, taking fans back to their golden days.

The excitement was evident on the faces of fans every time one of her songs started up with some of the biggest cheers of the night reserved for the encore when Don’t Stop rocked the stadium and the second encore as Songbird closed a memorable, but wet, Fleetwood Mac performance.

Kyrgyzstan plan? Immigration Minister Peter Dutton Photo: Alex EllinghausenIn Kyrgyzstan they call it “ala kachuu”. Loosely translated it means: grab a woman and run away.
Nanjing Night Net

It’s an ancient form of bride kidnapping said to have its roots in nomadic custom. It was outlawed under Soviet rule but it’s back in a big way: men drive around looking for women to kidnap and force into marriage and the authorities don’t do much to stop it.

Sometimes it’s consensual – an elaborate ritual – but usually not. It can involve rape and other forms of violence. Local civil society groups say thousands of women are forced into sexual and domestic servitude this way every year and the problem’s only getting worse.

Indeed, Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade warns travellers about it in its Kyrgyzstan travel advice.

“Women travelling alone and after dark should take extra care for their own security as kidnapping local women for marriage is an ongoing occurrence in the Kyrgyz Republic, and foreigners could mistakenly fall victim to such kidnappings,” it says.

It also warns about the threat of violent crime, gangs, robbery, terrorism, militants, civil unrest, treacherous roads, endemic diseases, bad hospitals, strict laws, police harassment, earthquakes and avalanches.

And if that’s not enough, Human Rights Watch also warns of torture, widespread judicial corruption, attacks on minorities such as gay and lesbian people, entrenched racism and the terrible treatment of refugees. The country’s capital, Bishkek​, lies along heroin smuggling routes from Afghanistan into Russia and Europe.

Nonetheless, Kyrgyzstan is reportedly the latest place to which the Turnbull government is considering sending refugees – particularly Hazara Afghans – currently languishing in Australian detention facilities on Nauru and Manus Island. */]]>

The government is under pressure to find countries that will agree to resettle the 1500 asylum seekers  sent offshore after coming to Australia by boat. The Immigration Minister’s office has declined to confirm or deny the Kyrgyzstan claims, only referring Fairfax Media to his October 9 statement that the government is in talks with a “number” of other countries.

The search comes as a result of the failure of the government’s so-called Cambodian solution, which saw just four people resettled in the south-east Asian nation despite costing taxpayers tens of millions of dollars.

Finance Minister Mathias Cormann was tight-lipped when pressed about the reports during a television appearance on Saturday.

“I’m not going to speculate about an unconfirmed story,” he told Sky News.

“We are having conversations with other countries to support our offshore processing arrangements and when we’re in a position to make relevant announcements, no doubt the minister for immigration will do so.”

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said the Cambodian deal was a “failed experiment” and the government should remove the “blanket of secrecy” and be up front about its future plans.

“The government should come clean, tell the Australian people what’s going on,” he told reporters.

Melbourne City might, in an alternative competition, think about changing their name to Melbourne Brittle.

No matter how comfortable they ever seem to look in a game, John Van ‘t Schip’s side rarely look as though they can be guaranteed to put their opposition away, even if they are a couple of goals to the good and in control of the game.

It was a familiar story for City’s long-suffering fans, who turned out at AAMI Park on Friday night for their clash with surprise early season pacesetters Newcastle Jets.

The latter arrived in town having won two of their opening three games, and while most pundits were pleased for new coach Scott Miller and delighted to see a club that had become something of a basket case begin to get its act in order, no one seriously expected the Novocastrians to stay in such a productive groove.

And those opinions seemed justified in a first half where the visitors were played off the park. City romped to a two-goal lead through Aaron Mooy and Stefan Mauk, the latter finishing off an intricate passing move that displayed the best of what City can offer, and it looked all over bar the shouting.

Mooy was pulling the strings in midfield, City were rotating the ball well – at least for the first half hour, anyway – and the Jets rarely threatened. If anyone had predicted, correctly, at the interval that there would be another three second-half goals most punters, given the option, would probably have lumped on a 4-1 or 5-0 scoreline by game’s end.

But that, of course, would have been to ignore City’s famous capacity to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. It would also have underestimated Newcastle’s growing powers of self-belief and commitment, forged by those two early wins, an off-season of turmoil and uncertainty and faith in a hard-edged young coach who commands the respect of the dressing room.

When Ben Kantarovski, thrown into a more attacking role as a result of a half-time reshuffle – one that Miller tactfully described afterwards as containing an “honest” self-appraisal by his players – headed home just before the hour mark this match was very definitely on.

A palpable sense went round the ground that the Jets might well get something out of the game, so often have regulars seen and endured City’s capacity for implosion.

And it was entirely in keeping with the hosts’ fate that the game hinged on two penalties, one given, one ruled out.

With City and Van ‘t Schip screaming for a spot kick for a foul on Corey Gameiro as they clung to a 2-1 lead, referee Jared Gillett ignored the home side’s pleas.

At the other end, when a hopeful cross in from the right by former City utility Jason Hoffman struck Wade Dekker on the arm and bounced out for a corner, the assistant referee raised his flag, Gillett pointed to the spot and Milos Trifunovic calmly netted the equaliser.

It is not just games, but seasons, sometimes jobs, that can hinge on decisions such as that and on one unfortunate result.

The spotlight will inevitably fall, once again, on the Dutchman in the hot seat at the City Football Academy after this defeat – not so much because of the scoreline but because of the way it occurred.

There is always pressure in football, so Van ‘t Schip is under no more than the average coach in the competition. And he is well used to it, having taken charge at big clubs such as Ajax and also worked as assistant manager during a World Cup and a European championship of the famously fractious Dutch squad.

But he would not want to preside over many more such fadeouts during the rest of the season, especially if the well-fancied City, who look to have a stronger and better balanced squad than in previous seasons, are battling to make the playoffs.

City will strengthen for the midweek clash with Adelaide.

Aaron Hughes, who has been missing all season, should be available to play at least some sort of role, the Northern Ireland international veteran having recovered from injury and regained fitness. Robert Koren, the Slovenian playmaker sidelined for the past few games, may also come back into consideration, while there could also be a return for French winger Harry Novillo, another who has missed this season through injury.

Van ‘t Schip could only lament Gillett’s inability to find in favour of his side at a critical point of the match, and also rail at his team’s inability to continue dominating a game they should have had wrapped up long before the interval.

“At 2-1 we should have had a clear penalty, again,” the coach said. “It’s the third one we didn’t get this year, clear penalties. I don’t know why it is the case … it’s unbelievable when you see it happening, when he’s not brave enough to point to the penalty spot. It’s not consistent in how they are making their decisions, it’s very frustrating.

“We stopped playing. Going two up after 30 minutes, then we were not playing the game we did in the first 30 minutes. We started to play long. We gave away our possession. We didn’t open up. We start from the back, we try to get the ball going around and into the midfield, but that didn’t happen. We started taking too long with free kicks, then every ball goes long. We continued with that in the second half. We were not able to change it.

“We were not jelling with what we were doing in the first 30 minutes. We were pressing and creating chances out of good football. We should have made the score bigger than 2-0.

“If we stop playing football we are vulnerable. I tell them to play freely and keep on looking for solutions on the pitch. There is too much of a difference in the past two games. It has happened when we have experienced players on the park too.”

Most Derby Day celebrities spend months planning their outfits. But Academy Award-winning actor Hilary Swank had less than 24 hours to organise her frock and hat.

The star of Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby and Freedom Writers was in Sydney this week visiting some friends. Swisse? got wind of this, snaffling her as its guest of honour in its opulent, China-themed Birdcage marquee.

Naturally, there was no shortage of designers willing to dress her.

“Christopher Esber? came to my rescue, and a beautiful hat was made for me, too,” Swank tells Fairfax Media.

While she has never been to Melbourne’s Spring Racing Carnival, she has toured the city before ? 21 years ago. Indeed, she celebrated her 20th birthday in the Victorian town of Hepburn Springs, near Daylesford.

“Victoria is one of my favourite places. The people, the culture and the country are just stunning. I remember the food being great. I wish I had more time to spend here.”

She even picked up a little Strine the first time around; “goodonya” being her favourite Aussie-ism. Having just returned, she’s already broadened her vocabulary.

Swank quickly learned that “Coffee, please” is the best response to “Cuppa?”.

“Oh, and ‘Is Bob your uncle?’,” she adds. “I’m like, ‘No, my uncle is Dave! I think ‘Is Bob your uncle?’ means, ‘Of course’.”

Fellow Swisse ambassador, model Ash Hart, normally chooses Australian designers but went for a Dolce & Gabbana frock this year, to reflect the company’s international expansion. While Hart and her female friends went to a lot of effort, she’s pleased the blokes did, too.

“Men are pushing the boundaries in fashion,” she says. “Even when it comes to the simplicity of black and white on Derby Day, they’re being more daring. It’s great to see.”

As Swisse’s marquee becomes more impressive, so do its competitors. Emirates’ marquee resembles an old English building ? a double-storey edifice with a sit-down restaurant. Appropriately, its guest list includes Lady Kitty Spencer, niece of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Serving the estimated crowd of 90,000 on Saturday are 1200 Victorian Racing workers and 1600 catering staff. A frantic 180 of them will do nothing but restock fridges, trying to keep pace with thirsty racegoers. Over the next four days, about 65,000 glasses of Mumm French champagne will be drunk (or, occasionally, spilled).

Nanjing Night Net

There are few bigger satisfactions for country trainers than winning a feature on their home track and on the horses-for-courses policy alone Ken Callaughan must be a huge chance in the $25,000 Anniversary Cup at Goulburn.

His ultra-consistent chestnut On A Shining Star has only raced five times at Goulburn for four wins and is yet to win on any other track.

“The last time Roly [Saxon] rode him there and he jumped and was three wide and didn’t let him go too,” Callaughan said. “He likes a firm track. I’ve scratched him a few times when it’s been wet, but if it’s a nice firm track he will run a nice race with no weight on him. He’s always been carrying big weights before.”

Jay Ford will take over for the main fare on Sunday with On A Shining Star, who is a half-brother to Callaughan’s recent Warwick Farm winner Keikosan and out of the mare Bella Arena he trained for breeder Dennis Rex.

“She was a leader and used to be up and running and this bloke is a bit the same,” Callaughan said.

SCRATCHING FOR A DATE

Stewards are still waiting to set a date for an adjourned inquiry into the dramatic scratching of Queanbeyan Cup favourite Scene Of The Crime last Sunday. The Matthew Dale-trained gelding was ordered out of the race after being found to have unapproved front shoes and pads when arriving at the start after a farrier mix-up. It was deemed there was insufficient time for the horse to be re-plated.

AND THEY’RE RACING

No fewer than 13 bush tracks will host non-TAB meetings on Melbourne Cup day, with meetings scheduled from Murwillumbah down to Wagga. Grafton’s Jacaranda Cup (Wednesday) and the Kempsey Cup (Friday) will be feature races later in the week.

Debut: Lauren Cheatle has been ranked as among the nation’s 10 fastest bowlers.Australian Test squad selected with a new era in mind
Nanjing Night Net

Sixteen-year-old fast bowler Lauren Cheatle will make her senior state debut for the NSW Breakers when she’s unleashed against Queensland in Sunday’s WNCL match at Hurstville Oval.

The teenager from Bowral, who was picked in the Breakers squad at 15, has been selected to exploit the ground’s conditions with her left-arm fast-medium deliveries.

“The fact that we’re on a fast, flat track helped earn Lauren selection,” said Breakers coach Jo Broadbent. “Even though the WACA pitch in our first two games was like that as well, we wanted to go in with an extra batter in those first two rounds.

“We feel our batting is going along nicely now, and we do want to try and get wicket-takers into the side and we see Lauren as someone who can play that role.”

Cheatle, whose father Giles was a spin bowler in England and played for Sussex and Surrey, has already represented Australia A and was last season ranked by Broadbent among the nation’s 10 fastest bowlers.

“She’ll go as far as the amount of work that she puts in,” said Broadbent of Cheatle’s  potential. “She’s still very young but there is that Australian level she could reach – provided she can keep her body fit.”

With internationals Alex Blackwell, Ellyse Perry, Alyssa Healy, Rachael Haynes, Rene Farrell and Laura Marsh surrounding Cheatle, Broadbent said the teenager won’t lack support against a Queensland team that’s recorded impressive victories over Tasmania and the ACT.

“She’s been chosen for what she has shown already, she has the toolbox of being able to bowl in-swing and across the right-handers as well,” she said. “We’re not going to ask her to do anything she hasn’t done already.”

Cyclone Chapala has already generated sustained winds of 95 knots(175 km/h), according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Centre. It was also producing significant wave heights of more than seven metres.

Eric Holthaus, a US meteorologist, estimates the storm will dump as much as eight times the annual rainfall of coastal regions of Yemen and Oman. These regions typically collect just 100-130 millimetresof rain a year.

The projected path of Chapala indicates it will reach Yemen on Monday. Photo: Joint Typhoon Warning Centre

The port city ofSalahah,in Oman, may face acoastal storm surge of as much as 4.5metres, Mr Holthaus said, adding that it is likely to be heavy deluge and flooding that may pose the bigger threat.

“Tropical cyclones arean extreme raritynear the Arabian Peninsula,” Mr Holthaus said.”Since reliable records begin in 1979, there have been only two hurricane-strength storms to make landfall in Oman, andthe only stormto hit Yemen topped out with winds at a paltry 35 miles per hour[56 km/h], barely tropical storm strength.”

Cyclone Chapala is the latest in a year of extreme weather.

Vredendal in South Africa earlier this week set the hottest Octobertemperature recorded anywhere and in any yearwith 48.4 degrees, according Jeff Master of the Weather Underground blog.

Earlier this month, Hurricane Patricia intensified into the strongest tropical storm ever recorded in the western hemisphere in just a few days.

The Pacific Ocean has also seen an unusually large number of intense tropical cyclones this year, including Cyclone Racquel, the earliest large storm to form off Australia’s north-east coast.

Global temperatures are also tracking well above previous levels so far in 2015 as the powerful El Nino event in the Pacific adds to background warming from climate change.


DUO: Michelle Payne and Prince of Penzance are set for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup. Picture: Getty Images.
Nanjing Night Net

DARREN Weir believes a good barrier draw is crucial to Prince of Penzance’s chances in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, 3200m.

The Ballarat trainer told The Courier an inside gate was vital if the horse was to run a forward race in the $6.2 million feature.

“For him to be a top 10 chance, he needs to draw inside barrier 10,” Weir said.

“We are happy with the order of him and we’re thinking we are a realistic top 10 chance if we can draw a barrier.

“It certainly won’t stop us from running if we draw a wide barrier, but it will make us a better chance if we drew in.”

Weir admitted it was hard to see the $81 chance on the TAB winning the race, but admitted he had enjoyed a good campaign.

“I couldn’t see him winning it, but I could see him running top 10. It’s $100,000 to run top 10,” he said.

With a number of runners being ruled out of the race in recent weeks, Prince of Penzance is now assured of a Melbourne Cup start, where he will be ridden by regular jockey Michelle Payne.

Payne has been with the horse in 22 of his 23 starts and all six of his career wins.

“She has done all the work on the horse and she gets on well with it so I’m more than happy to have her on,” Weir said.

Payne put Prince of Penzance – who ran second in last weekend’s Moonee Valley Cup – through his final piece of work on Friday.

“Dandino and Prince of Penzance galloped a lap from winning post to winning post at Terang and both horses worked really well,” Weir said.

“That’s (Prince’s) final hit out. He will go to the sand dunes on Sunday and that’s it.”

Weir has two other Melbourne Cup hopefuls and will know their fate when the field is confirmed on Saturday evening.

Dandino is just outside the 24-horse cut off and requires a couple of scratchings above him, while stablemate Zanteca must win Saturday’s Lexus Stakes to find her way into the field.

Weir has had four previous runners in the race that stops a nation, with Signoff placing fourth last year.

A new partnership will provide the shire’s cancer patients with reduced rate accommodation options when they are required to travel to Sydney for their cancer treatment.
Nanjing Night Net

Cancer Council NSW and AccorHotels will help ease the financial burden by providing cancer patients, carers and their family members access to hundreds of affordable rooms. The service will be available across 62 AccorHotels properties close to treatment facilities in greater Sydney and other locations across NSW.

The new partnership will complement the current NSW Government’s Isolated Patients Transport and Accommodation Assistance Scheme (IPTAAS). The overall financial burden of cancer will be reduced for these patients when they claim the commercial IPTAAS rate on these rooms.

Brenna Smith of Cancer Council NSW said it’s concerning to hear of patients who have chosen to forfeit vital treatment because of the financial burden and lack of available accommodation options when being treated away from their home region.

“When you are diagnosed with cancer, your time should be spent on getting to your radiation and chemotherapy treatments, eating properly and staying focused on the goal of getting better,” Ms Smith said.

“This new service will help local cancer patients and their families rest easy knowing accommodation options close to their treatment facility will be available at a cost affordable to them.”

Hotel staff will be trained to deal with specific dietary and housekeeping requirements. Rooms will have a Cancer Council NSW support pack providing information on other cancer support services, which will aid patients and their families during treatment away from home.

Cancer patients who require accommodation are encouraged to visit 梧桐夜网cancercouncil南京夜网419论坛/accommodation or call Cancer Council NSW on 131-120 to discuss their options.
