In some areas of the state, winds of more than 70 kilometers an hour were threatening to fan the flames of fires already burning. However, a change in wind direction had caused temperatures in certain parts of the state to fall, offering some relief.

A “catastrophic” fire risk has been declared in four areas of NSW, although the risk across 90% of the state is “severe” or above. A “catastrophic” warning carries the risk of significant loss of life and the destruction of many homes, according to the NSW Rural Fire Service (NSW RFS).

“I cannot say it more plainly: the risk is real and potentially deadly. People need to act now,” the service’s Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said.

On Tuesday morning, Prime Minister Julia Gillard warned it was “dangerous” day and urged people to “stay focused.(CNN).

Royal Family Prank Call Nurse Commits Suicide Audio

In News, UK on December 8, 2012 at 22:14

Whether flashing her Vagina or pregnant Kate Middleton is creating news.


Kate Middleton Pregnant Twins?

Subsequent to the hoax call by an Australian Radio Station,a Nurse foolishly fell  and paid for it.

While The Media seems to have no  right to intrude another’s privacy, it is also silly to talk as if no body in the whole world has delivered and a Divine Secret has been Revealed!

A Life has been lost !

People forget that the Royal House is notorious for Debauchery and King Charles II wore wigs made of his mistresses’s pubic Hairs!(OMG sex facts)

(‘There are drinking glasses in the shape of giant phalluses. Lewd platters are engraved with surreal pornographic images, including erections shaped as lighthouses and roosters with human penis heads. One prize exhibit is a snuff box filled with female pubic hair that was plucked by one of William’s most debauched and lecherous royal relatives, King George IV, the prince’s fourth great-granduncle, who ruled from 1820 to 1830. And a timeworn case contains a ghoulish wooden mannequin’s head whose peculiar erotic purpose can be traced back to another randy royal forebear, King Charles II. (The bloodline of the Merry Monarch, who ruled from 1660 to 1685,,runs to Prince William through his mother, Lady Diana, via several of Charles II’s illegitimate sons.)

What is intriguing to the modern eye is that these ribald artifacts hail from a period in history that most of us assume to be very conservative, with men in powdered wigs and women in tight corsets politely courting over tea and buttered scones.

The bizarre relics belong to a group called the Beggar’s Benison, the longest-lasting of the dozens of “enlightened” sex clubs that emerged across Britain in the Georgian era and are referred to generally as Hellfire Clubs.’

‘As pranks go, this one appeared outrageous and obnoxious rather than malicious: after convincing a hospital nurse who answered the phone this week that they were Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles, two Australian radio hosts then tricked another nurse into disclosing medical information about the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who had been admitted with acute morning sickness.

The call was broadcast on Australian radio; then it went out around the world.

But the stunt took a horrific and unexpected turn on Friday, when the nurse who answered the call, 46-year-old Jacintha Saldanha, was found dead, an apparent suicide.

The Metropolitan Police would not release details of the death, except to say that they had received a call reporting that there was an unconscious woman at Weymouth Street, in central London, and two ambulance crews had arrived to find Mrs. Saldanha already dead. A police spokesman said they were not treating the death as suspicious.


There has been renewed soul-searching over media ethics after Jacintha Saldanha, 46, the nurse who was duped by the station’s call to the King Edward VII hospital, was found dead on Friday in a suspected suicide…

The hoax, in which the radio hosts – posing as Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles despite Australian accents – successfully inquired after Kate’s medical condition, has made worldwide headlines.

On Saturday, Australians from Prime Minister Julia Gillard to people in the street expressed their sorrow and cringed at how the hoax had crossed the line of acceptability.

Two large companies suspended their advertising from the popular Sydney-based station and a media watchdog said it would speak with 2DayFM’s owners. Users of social media sites such as Twitter expressed outrage.

The hoax also raised concerns about the ethical standards of Australian media, as Britain’s own media scramble to agree a new system of self regulation and avoid state intervention following a damning inquiry into reporting practices.

Southern Cross Austereo Chief Executive Rhys Holleran told a news conference in Melbourne on Saturday that the company would work with authorities in any investigation, but that it was too early to draw conclusions.

He said he was “very confident” that the radio station had done nothing illegal.

Satire,Spoof, Investigative journalism

We have seen some outstanding work by the Media .

But some seem to be carried away, degenerating into abuse,blackmail,being uncouth, vindictive and outright pornography.

Freedom is most powerful when used with restraint and commonsense.

Conservative opposition lawmakers said the Australian Broadcasting Corporation had overstepped good taste with a scene in which actors playing Gillard and her partner Tim Mathieson cuddled naked and used the flag — with its historic ties to Britain and Australia’s Queen Elizabeth — as a sheet.

“Having sex in the prime minister’s office under the Australian flag is the last straw for me. It is sick. I’m offended and we should take a stand,” one lawmaker who could not be named told a closed door meeting of MPs, a conservative spokesman told a press briefing.

Another MP called for a rethink of taxpayer funding for the ABC, saying the program degraded the office of prime minister, currently held by center-left Labor rival Gillard, while monarchists said the use of the flag was disrespectful.

“I think a bit more discretion when using the flag is appropriate, even when you are trying to make a joke,” Australians for Constitutional Monarch head David Flint told Australian media.


Phone Hacking UK-David Cameron Parliament Address -Live.

In Media, News, UK on July 20, 2011 at 16:37

Prime Minister David Cameron will address the phone-hacking scandal rattling the foundations of the British press, police and political establishments in a special session of Parliament Wednesday, hours after lawmakers slammed Rupert Murdoch’s News International and the police.

Parliament’s Home Affairs committee “deplored” obstruction by News International when lawmakers first tried to probe accusations of illegal eavesdropping by journalists working for Murdoch, and criticized police for failing to investigate the case properly.

The committee’s report does not mention either Murdoch by name.

Australia’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard also weighed in on the controversy Wednesday, saying the Australian arm of Murdoch’s empire, News Ltd., had “hard questions” to answer.

“When there has been a major discussion overseas, when people have seen telephones hacked into, when people have seen individuals grieving have to deal with all of this, then I do think that causes us to ask some questions here in our country,” Gillard said.


12.00pm: Miliband asks three questions – about BSkyB, Andy Coulson, and Sir Paul Stephenson:

• BSkyB - can he assure the house the bid was not raised in any of his meetings with News Corp figures? Did he discuss it with the culture secretary?

• Coulson - Miliband runs through warnings about Coulson that Cameron has received or could have received, and media coverage such as the New York Times investigation into phone hacking. Why did Ed Llewellyn turn down the offer of a police briefing? Because the PM was compromised – “he was hamstrung by a conflict of interest”. Why did alarm bells not ring in Cameron’s office.
