Granata came firstin race eight, while brother, Moreno, tied for second withPeter Stockwell. Derek Goullet (fourth) has put in the hard yards this comp and is well situated inthird place. He’s missed one race and finished in the top 10in every other.

The cool, drizzlyconditions and the tail end of the Arsova comp conspired to spur all three to run their personal bests, Goullet finishing the fasted the course in 21.47.

In fifth, Jim Salvestro, finally broke into the top 10 with a PB of 31.10.

Brendon Sinclair (sixth)lowered his best time by 16 seconds finishing in 23.43.

In the short course, Rhys Salvestro managed another first place in only his third run this compwhile Mia Stockwell came back to hill after a long absenceto take out second.Liam Peruzzi justedged out Christian Callcut for third, but Callcut has knocked the absent Meg Signor into thirdplace in the point score.

Tying for fifth place were Nick Altin and Gerry Wilcox who had a quickbut friendly run on the trails together.

Also tying for places were Adrian Baird and newcomerKaiden Simpson in seventh, swiftly followed by Donna Jackson (ninth) and Ella Savage (10th).

Saving time during firefight in the snow

AN IMPRESSIVE BEST: The Alpine first attack vehicle could get around the Mount Buller snowfields with ease over winter without damaging the snow surface. Picture: ANDREW RAILTONA fire vehicle that slashed emergency response times in the Mount Buller snow this winter has been hailed as “almost invincible”.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

TheAlpine first attack vehicle looks like an impressive monster, sitting high off the ground on its giant tracks, but puts less force onto the ground than a person.

The vehicleis actually a modified ToyotaLandcruiser worth $155,000 whichanyone with a normal car licence can drive and does not void the original warranty.

CFA’s District 23 operations officer Paul Horton said an emergency call-out that previously took 30 minutes to get to in the snow, can now take just five minutes.

“It’s putting time back into the firefight,” he said.

The potential downside of not having a fire truck is that it cannot carry as much water, so the CFA found a new pump and hoseset from Denmark that can do the same job with much less water.

“I reckon these will make our fire trucks almost invincible,” Mr Horton said.

Displays help plot history

Horsham West Primary School’s Lauren Matheson with some of the artwork students have created for the Wimmera German Fest. Picture: SAMANTHA CAMARRITaste of Germany awaitsSausage kings battle it outWIMMERA Regional Library Corporation will showcase the region’sGerman heritage through artefacts and maps on Saturday.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

The corporation has co-ordinated a collection of cultural material in the past year to form a display at the Wimmera German Fest.

Festivalsteering committee member and library corporation chief executive Paula Clark said the display would include maps and family histories.

“We have some family histories in the collection at Horsham that have been done by many of the German descendants in the area,” she said.

“We have also got some artefacts –things like certificates and confirmation notices –to show.

“Two maps have been on display at Horsham Library –one of Germany, and the other of the Wimmera.

“We have asked people to pin where theirfamily came from in Germany and what part of our region they settled in.”

Ms Clark said about 50 families were recorded on the maps so far.“That only represents a tiny amount –there are many more people of German ancestry who moved to the area in the late 1880s,” she said.

“We hope that on the day of the festival, people will continue to help us plot these histories.

“We hope that each year of the festival, our collection and the cultural contributions will increase as people become more knowledgeable and in touch with their German heritage.”

Ms Clark said many of the people featured on the maps so far hailed from Murtoa and surrounds.

“There are also many people from the Katyil and Gerang Gerung areas,” she said.

The display will also feature contributions from Horsham West Primary School students.These will include posters with German words and English translations, and German numbers.

Ms Clark said the cultural display was something the corporation hoped to build on and celebrate each year.

Horsham Library also hosted a black forest cake workshop this week to promote the festival.

Rates hypocrisy: MAV

The State Government plans to cap council rates at CPI from 2016/17.The State Government’s plan to cap council rates at CPI from 2016/17 has come under fire from the Municipal Association of Victoria which has accused the government of hypocrisy.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said new data analysed by the State Government showed that Macedon Ranges Shire Council had increased rates at an average of 5.74 per cent over the past decade. She urged council to rein in rates ahead of the Fair Go Rates cap being introduced next year.

Under the government’s plan, councils wanting to exceed the cap will be required to justify their spending.

“The Andrews Labor Government wants councils to be more accountable and transparent in their spending, and for communities to have a greater say. I’m sure that’s something local residents want to see too,” Ms Thomas said.

However the president of the Municipal Association of Victoria, Cr Bill McArthur, pointed out that Victorians faced an average state tax increase of almost six per cent every year for the last decade and even more in property taxes.

“State property taxes (land tax and stamp duty) rose $2.7 billion over the last decade to $5.9 billion. Total state taxes increased an average 5.59 per cent a year, but state property taxes grew by an average 7.13 per cent for each of the last 10 years,” Cr McArthur said.

“Taking funding away from councils while constantly criticising them is unconstructive, particularly when the state continues to reap a massive windfall each year from its own property taxes.”

Macedon Ranges Council challenged the State Government figures, stating that based on the rates and charges for the median valued property in the Macedon Ranges, rates had increased an average of 5.3 per cent over the past 10 years.

The mayor, Cr Jennifer Anderson, said council was mindful of finding the right balance between planning for the long-term wellbeing of residents and keeping rates affordable as part of every annual budget process.

“Our most recent budget is the eighth consecutive rate rise that has remained below five per cent for the median valued property,” Cr Anderson said.

Cr Anderson said that in the past year, the Victorian Government had discontinued the $1 million per year for local roads and bridges funding and $625,000 a year for infrastructure to the Macedon Ranges community.

“We are concerned that while we are yet to determine what areas will be impacted when rate capping is introduced, it may result in a reduction in works and/or services to our community,” she added.

Program aims to lower road toll

THE TransportAccident Commission has renewed a partnership with regional mediaoutlets which aims tostem deaths and casualties on country roads.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

Speaking at a Rural Press Club of Victoria event in Ballarat, TAC chief executive JoeCalafiore said regional Victorians were four timesmore likely to be killed and 40 per cent more likely to be seriously injured than people in Melbourne.

“Regional communities understand all too well the devastating impacts of road trauma so it is essentialthat we do everything we can to keep road safety in the minds of country Victorians,” Mr Calafiore said.

The TAC’s Talk the Toll Down partnership with 65 regional newspapers was launched four years ago inBallarat.

​The announcement follows the launch of the TAC’s popular Towards Zero campaign, encouragingVictorians to consider how losing a loved one would affect their family and to aim for a future where noone is killed or seriously injured on our roads.

Coach rubs salt in Benji snub

NEW Zealand coach Stephen Kearney has put to bed any doubt as to whether Dragons halfback Benji Marshall has been black-listed from the Test line up by picking Manly winger Peta Hiku at five-eighth for the Kiwis opening tour match against Leeds.
苏州美甲美睫培训学校

ON DECK: Dragons winger Jason Nightingale has been selected on the wing for New Zealand’s opening UK tour match against Leeds Rhinos. Picture: Chris Chan

Kearney has repeatedly denied putting a permanent line through Marshall’s name but it would be hard to draw any other conclusion given the selection of Hiku as a makeshift halves option alongside Warriors rookie Tuimoala Lolohea in the halves Saturday’s clash

Marshall suffered a syndesmosis injury in the Dragons week one finals loss to the Bulldogs but was available for selection.

With regular halves Shaun Johnson and Kieran Foran both unavailable for the tour through injury,Marshall’s experience would have been valuable in a squad full of debutants.

But the former Test captainwas overlooked in favour of rookies Lolohea and Kodi Nikorima who was named on the bench.

“This will be an opportunity for those two halves to build combinations with the group around them,” Kearney said.

“We also have guys that haven’t played since the last round of the NRL.

“This is a chance for them to blow out some cobwebs.”

Dragons winger Jason Nightingale was selected for the match.

Leeds have picked up the League Leaders Shield, Challenge Cup and Super League Trophy this season.

“This will be perfect preparation for us,” Kearney said.

“Leeds will be honouring some special players so we’reexpecting a full house.”

The documentary features two young Australian-Korean football players: Blacktown City FC’s Danny Choi, 21, and Sydney United 58 FC’s Sunny Chang, 16.

Both Choi and Chang show promising futures and dream of pursing professional football – or ‘chuk-gu’ as Koreans fondly call the sport.

But their story highlights how their passion for the world game is bridging the cultural differences between Australians and Koreans today.

As Dr Yung Jai You, of the Korean Football Association in Australia, aptly says in the film: “Immigrants and Korean football. These two things are inseparable”.

The documentary, which premiered at Parramatta’s Riverside Theatres on October 11 as part of the inaugural Football Film Festival, further delves into the sacrifices of first generation Australian-Korean immigrants and the current struggles faced by the second generation.

From overcoming language barriers to resettlement in a foreign country, the film gives a raw account on some of the pain which Choi and Chang’s parents endured when they first came to Australia.

Feeling stressed? This uni’s surreal live stream will break things for you

An Australian university has managed to capture the world’s imagination with four costumes, a room full of breakable things, and an internet connection.

For the past week, Deakin University has broadcast a “live, interactive sitcom”called Stress Break from a tiny studio in Melbourne’s Docklands, where costumed actors dressed like a ghost, a hotdog, a robot and a slothsmash things on demand for an hour and a half each evening.

The addictive and destructive live stream, which is commentated by two people and has action replays, began its week-long run at 5pm on Monday. On Tuesday, it was posted to social sharing site Reddit, and since then thousands have tuned in every night to request the theatrical destruction ofprinters, computers, vases,bowls and other household detritus.

Messages fromFacebook and Twitter are read out as part of the stream, with students or workers giving themselves a stress level out of five and requesting the material destruction that would help them feel better.

The result is a kind of demented version of Q&A: a bunch of charactersin a live stream, tweets flashing up on the screen, and some scenes you just can’t look away from.But (take note Aunty)it also hasa robotdestroying a fridge with a sledgehammer.

Trisca Scott Branagan, Executive Director of Marketing for Deakin, said the memorabledisplay was organised ahead of Victoria’s final-year exams, the Victorian Certiciate of Education (VCE) as light-hearted and inventive way to help students take temporary refuge fromstress.

The broadcast has attracted a much wider audience than originally intended.

“I guess that’s the thing about the internet,” Ms Branagan saidwith a laugh. “When it catches people’s attention and they like what they see, you don’t have control over that. We’re really excited that this has now started a global conversation around stress and awareness of that.”

The objects that get smashed are mostly old equipment that was destined for the tip, but there are a few special requests that are accommodated.

“Some things are staple items, like there are always computers and printers there, other things change each night as we get requests through for additional objects,” Ms Branagan said.

“It’s any variety of well-loved, now useless items that we can have a bit of fun with.

With the help of creative agency The Royals, the university has built an entire website around the live stream –which finishes on Friday –including profiles on the costumed characters, and the way they will smash things. The sloth, for example, is prone to bursts of energy followed by slow, sleepymovements.

“When you talk to the people in the costumes, they really get into character,” Ms Branagan said.“I think they’re having as much fun as we are watching them.”

Hundreds of thousands of viewers have tuned in from locations like Germany, Austria, South Africa, Canada and the US, all with something positive to say about the performance, and many with a suggestion of what to destroy.

The sitcom has been so successful the university isn’t sure what they can do next that would top it– but from the looks of it, it’s already helped to attract students.
