FYI if I was to do a podcast it'd be after I release my album. I don't have time to do ANYTHING else until that's done. This is the idea I had for the show, let me know any thoughts you might have. With each episode I'll make a post about who's going to be the guest that week and let you guys put in questions you would like me to ask and as long as they're respectful I will ask the ones with the most likes..
Elizabeth Police recently acknowledged the courageous and selfless efforts of a member of the public at the scene of a fatal vehicle collision in May this year.
On 26 May 2016, Gordon Arthur Schiworski witnessed the crash in Parafield Gardens and stopped to help. He managed to secure the scene, alerting other drivers of the hazard and attempted to assist the unresponsive driver until police arrived.
Mr Schiworski then assisted the first officer on the scene, Sergeant Taryn Trevelion, to perform CPR on the driver while they waited for SA Ambulance to arrive.
Not only did Mr Schiworski provide valuable assistance at the scene, he also tended to the emotional needs of his co-workers who were directly involved.
The actions of Mr Schiworski and Sergeant Trevelion have been formally acknowledged by Superintendent Graham Martin on behalf of Elizabeth Police. The pair were awarded Certificates of Appreciation recognising their decisiveness and courage earlier this month.
Pollies and their entitlements – here we go again!
Unless we change the system of pollies perks, expect to see more stories like the one involving Sussan Ley (who by the way, at a personal level, is very decent to deal with, but that’s no excuse).
Don’t believe Labor jumping up and down about this – both sides are complicit in keeping a cosy system in place.
Back in August 2015, I introduced legislation in the Senate that would have made pollies' entitlements much more transparent, as well as an independent watchdog, with the public (that’s right, you) having the right to make complaints. And it would have forced MPs to pay double the amount in event of a mistaken claim – nothing like pinching the hip pocket nerve to keep pollies' mind’s focussed.
Commentators at the time thought my legislation was sensible and practical. But guess what? The major parties rejected it out of hand.
If only my bill had been supported at the time, I don’t reckon we’d be seeing the fiasco involving Sussan Ley.
Lest We Forget the West Papuan troops who fought alongside Australian troops in World War II. Now West Papuans are suffering genocide and illegal Indonesian occupation.
'They helped us in our time of need. It is only right to help them in theirs.'
Open letter to the people of West Papua by Australian World War II veteran James Burrowes who fought alongside West Papuans. www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL1602/S00072/an-open-letter-to-the-people-of-west-papua.htm
"...I sincerely wish you the very best of success in your long-term struggle for independence. You helped us to preserve the independence of Australia from Japan..." - James Burrowes
Thank you to James and Robert Burrowes for telling their moving story about how Australians and Papuans fought alongside one another for the future of the region.
This is an actual job application that a 75-year-old pensioner submitted to Bunnings in Burleigh Heads. They hired him because he was so funny….
NAME: Adam Landon Jones (Grumpy Bastard)
SEX: Not lately, but I am looking for the right woman (or at least one who will cooperate)
DESIRED POSITON: Company’s Chief Executive or Managing Director. But seriously, whatever’s available. If I was in a position to be picky, I wouldn’t be applying in the first place – would I?
DESIRED SALARY: $150,000 a year plus share options and a good redundancy package. If that’s not possible, make an offer and we can haggle.
LAST POSITON HELD: Target for middle management hostility.
PREVIOUS SALARY: A lot less than I’m worth.
MOST NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENT: My incredible collection of stolen pens and post-it notes.
REASON FOR LEAVING: It was a crap job.
HOURS AVAILABLE TO WORK: Any.
PREFERRED HOURS: 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.
DO YOU HAVE ANY SPECIAL SKILLS?: Yes, but they’re better suited to a more intimate environment.
MAY WE CONTACT YOUR CURRENT EMPLOYER?: If I had one, would I be here’?
DO YOU HAVE ANY PHYSICAL CONDITONS THAT WOULD PROHIBIT YOU FROM LIFTING UP TO 20kg.?: Of what?
DO YOU HAVE A CAR?: I think the more appropriate question here would be “Do you have a car that runs?”
HAVE YOU RECEIVED ANY SPECIAL AWARDS OR RECOGNITON?: I may already be a winner of the Reader’s Digest Timeshare Free Holiday Offer, so they tell me.
DO YOU SMOKE?: On the job – no! On my breaks – yes!
WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN FIVE YEARS?: Living in the Bahamas with a fabulously wealthy Swedish supermodel with big tits and who thinks I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread. Actually, I’d like to be doing that now.
NEAREST RELATIVE?: 12 Kms
DO YOU CERTIFY THAT THE ABOVE IS TRUE AND COMPLETE TO THE BEST OF YOUR KNOWLEDGE?: Oh yes. absolutely.
After landing my new job as a Bunnings “Greeter” – a goodfind for many retirees, I lasted less than a day . . . . . About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting Bogan babe walked into the store with her two kids,yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.
As I had been instructed, I said, pleasantly, “Good morning and welcome to Bunnings.” I then said,”Nice children you have there. Are they twins?”
The woman stopped yelling long enough to say, “No, they ain’t effin twins. The oldest one’s 9, and the other one’s 7, why the hell would you think they’re twins? Are you blind, or just effin stupid?”
I replied, “I’m neither blind nor stupid, Madam. I just couldn’t believe someone shagged you twice…. Have a good day and thank you for shopping at Bunnings.”
My supervisor said I probably wasn’t cut out for this line of work.
How would you feel if, over the last 12 months, your town had experienced a 13% rise in crime? Well, that's exactly what has happened in Townsville.
I will be traveling to Townsville on Tuesday to address the issue of rising crime.
I will be meeting with locals who have been the victims of crime to listen to what they have to say. I will also be meeting with local Councillors and representatives from the police. This is definitely something that needs to be looked into so the problem can be addressed.
What do you think? Is crime on the rise in Australia? Have you experienced rising crime in your city or town? What can be done about it?
"Toorak would've been nice, but it's a bit too 'Eddie McGuire' to raise kids like mine," she said. "I just want them to discover who they really are in a safe environment. Hopefully, before they turn 13."
We're loving P!nk's brilliant idea to throw a Big Sister Party for her daughter. The talented singer and mother-of-two uploaded this happy snap to Instagram, writing "Congrats Big Sis!" New addition Jameson Moon seems oblivious, but how big (and cute) is Willow's smile?! 💗🙌
Meet James and Damian from Victoria. They have been together for 15 years — and hope 2017 is the year for #MarriageEquality!
"We met in 2001 and celebrated our 15 year anniversary in July last year. We are very close and have a deep, strong relationship. Our family have been pushing for us to be married for so long."
"We went to my sister's wedding 8 years ago, it was beautiful. But the entire family feels a sense of injustice that she was able to do this so many years ago, and yet now, we are still waiting."
"We are proud we've been together for 15 years, and want to express our vows in front of our families. We have thought about getting married overseas, but feel strongly about being able to get married in our own country."
