Look beyond your comfort zone at work

Options: Federation Training Skills and Jobs Centre project manager Jackson Long said the centre would provide Latrobe Valley residents with ongoing support and skills when finding work. photograph emma watsonA Skills and Jobs Centre has opened at Federation Training’s Morwell campus, available to the young and old seeking a new career path or training option.
Nanjing Night Net

Project manager Jackson Long said the centre was one of many across Gippsland, funded through the State Government to link job seekers to employers.

“We’re about giving people the skills and the ability to look for jobs further afield than what they would normally,” Mr Long said.

“Get them out of the box and let them look beyond what they would normally.”

As part of the centre, two industry engagement coordinators are knocking on industries’ doors to find out what local employers are after.

“They want to know what the employers would like to see come to their door; what sort of skills would you like to see come to your door that could help you improve your company?” Mr Long said.

He said this knowledge could then be transferred into advice for Valley job seekers, who often didn’t realise how employable they were.

“The jobs are pretty thin on the ground here in the Latrobe Valley, but (this is about) the idea of actually giving people the ability to go and get a job when they do find one, or perhaps look further afield than what they have in the past,” Mr Long said.

“They might think their skills are very limited to one job, so (this gives them) the ability to come in and talk to someone who’s got a pretty broad range of skills and knowledge with industry, to actually have a talk with them.

“They might say, ‘well I can only do this or I can only do that’, and after the interview they may think, ‘oh ok, I’ve got all these other skills’.”

FedTraining is holding a series of free workshops at the Morwell campus, covering employability skills, resume writing, where the jobs are and interviews.

Kids on the ball

Ball kids: Children from the Latrobe Valley helped out at the Traralgon ATP Challenger Tour. photograph hayley millsThey are often overlooked but it’s hard to imagine a successful tennis tournament without them.
Nanjing Night Net

They are the ball children who spend their time chasing down loose balls to ensure matches run smoothly and with minimal delay.

Last week there were about 50 ball children who volunteered their time at the ATP Traralgon Challenger tournament.

Danielle Healey said she relished the opportunity to see the players up close.

“It’s good to be on court with players that you know are going to make it to the Australian Open or have played at Wimbledon,” Danielle said.

“It helps you know that you can use that (the insight gained watching the players) on court and improve your game and know that’s something that the players do.”

She said it was something she intended to continue in years to come.

Ryan O’Brien, who has been a ball child at the tournament for the past three years, said he enjoyed the banter with the players. He shared an experience with a player from this year’s edition.

“He hit a couple of aces and he wanted the same ball and I gave him the ball and he said ‘how do you know that’s it?’ and I said, ‘it’s dirtier’, Ryan said.

“He said ‘if that’s it it’s good’ and then he hit two aces with it.”

Hunter Eenjes said he joined in because he enjoyed helping the Traralgon Tennis Association and the players.

“(It’s) very entertaining, it can be scary sometimes when they crack it,” Hunter said.

Harriet Luders said she enjoyed it because “you get to know some more people and you get to watch some players and you can learn from them”.

“I didn’t get to do the whole week because mum said ‘you have to go to school’,” Harriet said.

“But I did get to do Monday and I’ve really enjoyed it – I’ve done it for the past four years.”

Moorooka bus fire: Indian PM calls Turnbull over Manmeet Sharma

India’s Prime Minister has raised concerns with his Australian counterpart over the alleged murder of a Punjabi bus driver set alight on a Brisbane bus.

In a statement issued on Sunday, India’s Ministry of External Affairs said PM Narendra Modi called Malcolm Turnbull to send him Diwali greetings.

“Prime Minister Modi also conveyed a sense of concern being felt in India over the recent brutal killing of Mr Manmeet Alisher, a person of Indian origin, in Australia,” the statement read.

“Prime Minister Turnbull expressed shock at the killing and conveyed that the matter is being investigated.”

When asked on Monday morning, Mr Turnbull said he could understand his counterpart’s concerns.

“In fact, I spoke to Prime Minister Modi about it last night and conveyed our sympathies and condolences,” he said.

“The matter, of course, is being closely investigated (and) I will keep him informed as the results of the investigation arise.”

A series of attacks on Indian students in Australia in 2009 caused tensions between the two countries and raised concerns in India about racially motivated violence.

Police have struggled to detail a motive for the fire attack in Brisbane’s south just after 9am on Friday, in which an “incendiary device” was allegedly thrown on the 29-year-old casual bus driver, also known as Manmeet Sharma, as he pulled up to collect passengers.

Moorooka man Anthony O’Donohue, 48, has been charged with the murder of the driver and another 11 counts of attempted murder.

Outside court on Saturday, his lawyer said he held concerns for his client’s mental health.

Within hours of the incident, which sent shockwaves through the city’s Indian, transport, and wider communities and made headlines back home, they said there was no indication of terrorism or racial motivation.

Mr Sharma’s brother Amit Alisher told the ABC he feared the attack may have been a hate crime, fearing the worst even in the absence of any clear evidence.

“We suspect that it may be [racially motivated],” he said.

“We would like to see due process, we have faith in the Australian system.”

Long-term family friend Winnerjit Goldy and Manmeet’s older brother Amit Sharma rushed for Australia at the weekend and have called for justice over the death.

The slain driver’s parents are still yet to learn of the popular singer, actor and community man’s death.

Toole belts Macquarie in aggressive knock

A CRACKING knock from Mitchell middle-order batsmanJosh Toole helped rocket his side to a dominant five-wicket win over Macquarie at Orange’s Jack Brabham Park on Saturday.
Nanjing Night Net

In the second Western Zone inter-council trial game, Mitchell raced passed Macquarie’s total of 8-171, Toole’s unbeaten, better-than-a-run-a-ball 61 propelling his side to victory one ball into the 31stover.

At the other end having contributed an unbeaten 44 to a six-wicket stand worth 112, skipper Jameel Qureshi said his Bathurst batting partner’sno-holds-barred approach was fun to watch.

“He was just in one of those moods…all I had to do was play my own game down the other end,” Qureshi said.

“He just wanted to hit everything, and when he’s in one of those moods, you can’t really tell him otherwise.

“In saying that, though, it was still a pretty sensible innings. He kept out the good balls and attacked the bad ones.”

GREAT KNOCK: Bathurst batsman Josh Toole blasted an aggressive 61 for Mitchell in Saturday’s Western Zone win over Macquarie.

While Toole only managed six runs in Sunday’s round three loss to Lachlan, he provided the highlight of a patient effort from the Mitchell outfit.

Winning the toss and batting first, Macquarie started strongly before Mitchell’s new-ball pairing struck.

Charlie Kempson (eight) andJordan Moran (23) fell to Orange’s Hugh Le Lievre (2-38) andBathurst’s Matt Stephen (1-30) in quick succession.

Mitch Bower (two) went soon after toLe Lievre, who doesn’t take the new ball on a regular basis for his club side CYMS.

Macquarie’s Greg Buckley came and went for 13, leaving the bulk of the run-scoring to be done by Tom Nelson.

Nelson provided just that, hitting 67 not out as he anchored Macquarie’s innings.

However, his runs came slowly as the visitors crawled to 8-171 from their 50 overs.

It was a shaky start to Mitchell’s innings with the bat, left-arm quick Henry Railz (2-25) taking the early wickets of Bathurst City duo Joey Coughlan(zero) and Ben Orme (zero) while Henry Shoemark (four) fell to Ben Semmler (1-10) to leave the hosts reeling at 3-8.

Veteran Riche Venner (31) steadied the ship alongside the prodigious Ryan Peacock (16) until the pair fell in quick succession with the score on 60.

It was then over to Toole and Qureshi–and it didn’t take long for the gun pair to race to 5-172and the victory.

Although Toole’s innings stole the show, the Mitchell skipper said it was his side’s innings with the ball that set up the win.

“I thought we bowled really well as a team,” Qureshi said.

“Hugh and Stevo really built up the pressureand then, I thought anyway,it was a good deck for slow bowlers.

“We took the pace off the ball and made them play our game, which worked beautifully.”

Nanjing Night Net

Here’s the Form Guide.

Renewable Energy –A great prospect with Winx-like abilities. There have been attempts to nobble this Phar Lap of the 21st Century but, despite being forced to carry heavy weight, sheis performing well. Loves a tail wind and is a strong finisher on a dry track. The smart money is on this horse.

Old King Coal –Literally on its last legs but propped up with stimulants. Has had a succession of jockeys who have a track record of interfering with Renewable Energy in the back straight. The owners, the Fossil Fuel Mafia, seem determined to keep flogging a dead horse.

Nuclear –Doesn’t have a great track record, failing spectacularly at the Fukushima Stakes and the Chernobyl Derby. Has received some late backing from Old King Coal interests but punters are wary of dangerous riding charges.

Biomass –Showed early promise but apparently the horse’s appearance (remember Fine Cotton) was altered to make to make it look like Renewable Energy. Turned out to be the progeny of Old King Coal and the tired nag, Woodchipper.

Clean Coal –A scratching. Couldn’t stand up when inspected by the Race Veterinarian.

On this form you’d expect that Renewable Energy would romp it in as the clear favourite. However, there are disturbing reports that the Fossil Fuel Mafia have an unhealthy influence over the Stewards. So far the Stewards seem to beignoringthe scientific advice that only Renewable Energy is fit for racing.

Doug Reckord, KalaruRejecting inputOn September 17 I wrote to ABC head office regarding the cessation of the funeral announcements at 6.59am and how the community of this listening area were so upset that they were missing this very important announcement.

Well over 2500 people signed the petitions requesting the return of this important information.

I find it very strange that the ABC is now wanting more input from the community into the local radiostation’s programming and then straight away rejected the one item we all want to be broadcast.

I feel that nothing will change about this decision by the ABC unless we all protest by writing to the ABC head office and our local ABC in Bega.

ABC’s head office address is GPO Box 9994, Sydney 2001.

Maybe, hopefully, the funeral announcements will be broadcast once again at 6.59each morning.

Annette Warby, TathraConcerning infoWhilesurfing the internet to find out whether the fluoridisation of Bega’s drinking water would damage the bacteria’s in my septic system, I came across this which is of a real concern.

I have emailed council regarding the septic issue so if the septic gets damaged I have someone to sue.

According to a paper written by Gary Null, PhD, entitled The Fluoridation Fiasco, “…fluoride is more toxic than lead and just slightly less toxic than arsenic”.

He goes on to state “…the fluoride added to drinking water and toothpaste is a crude industrial waste product of the aluminium and fertiliser industries…toxic enough to be used as rat poison”.

DrNull adds “research does not support the effectiveness of fluoridation for preventing tooth disease. …purported benefits are supposedly for children, not adults and senior citizens. At about age 13, any advantage fluoridation might offer comes to an end…fluoridation has never been proven safe. On the contrary, several studies directly link fluoridation to skeletal fluorosis, dental fluorosis, and several rare forms of cancer.”

FREE Eyre export venture

FREE Eyre’s Mark Rodda and mark Cant from Sea Transport Corporation at the opening of the Lucky Bay harbour expansion on Friday.A JOINT venture betweengrower-owned agribusinessFREE Eyre and transshipping company Sea TransportCorporation is expected to save growers money and create at least 50 jobs in the region.
Nanjing Night Net

The companies announced plans on Friday for a transshipping enterprise at Lucky Bay, near Cowell,where grain will be barged out to ships in Spencer Gulf.

The joint venture companySpencer Gulf Trustwill bring together the global expertise ofSea Transport’s transshipping technology with FREEEyre’s grain grower shareholders andclients, tobuilda bulk commodity transshipping terminal and enterprise at Lucky Bay, using state-of- the-art, shallow draft transshipping vesselsto load larger cargo vessels moored in the gulf.

At the official opening of the Lucky Bay transshipping harbor extension on Friday, Free Eyre chairman John Crosby and Sea Transport chairman Stuart Ballantyne saidthat subject to funding negotiations, construction on the land-based grainreceival, storage and handling facilities would start in the first quarter of 2017 and becompleted in time to receive grain for the 2017 harvest.

The site at Lucky Bay where a bulk commodity transshipping terminal and enterprise will be built, using state-of- the-art, shallow draft transshipping vessels to load larger cargo vessels moored in Spencer Gulf.

Financial modelling suggestsgrowers in the Lucky Bay catchment zone could save $10 to $19 a tonne on average, depending on individual growers’ freight costs.

Across the past 10 years, an average of onemillion tonnesof grain has been produced within this catchment zone.

The Spencer Gulf Trust anticipatesWallaroo will be the second stage with similar facilities designed toreceive, store and export both grain and fertiliser, adding competition to the supply chain.

There is also potential for transshippingat other key locations such as Streaky Bay and Kangaroo Island and the company believes this alternative method of transshipping bulk commodities has the potential totransform grain and fertiliser handling in South Australia.

Thirty of his colleagues nominated Mr Norwell for ‘The Knock of Cash’ promotion. Many of these colleagues as well as surfing mates such as Glenn Fenwickwere instrumental in organising the inaugural Paul Norwell Memorial Paddle Out.

“We spent many days here surfing so we decided as a surfing community, we’d organise this and do what he wished. I’m sure he approved,’’ Mr Fenwick said.

Fellow paramedic and long-time family friend Dale Hughes said The Farm was Mr Norwell’s favourite spot.

“Aparamedic’s life is pretty stressful, we all look for strategies to de-stress –this was Paul’s. He spentmost of his days off here,’’ Mr Hughes said.

Hesaid his matewaswell-loved and respected.

“From the surfers down here at The Farm to his work colleagues and his immediate family, Paul had a calm persona about him and ready smile,’’ he said.

“We are going to spread his ashes today, have a circle of remembrance and few quite prayers for him.We are here to remember our mate who went too soon.’’

Lisa Norwell said it was a tough day but her husband requested his ashes be spread out to sea.

“This [The Farm] was his second home. This is what he wanted,’’ she said.

“We miss him dearly. He was a friend to everybody, a passionate paramedic and just an adored husband and father.’’

John Norwell said it was only right that his son chose The Farm as his final resting place.

“He loved this place. This is where he surfed most of his life. I also surfed here in the 60’s before the land was developed,’’ Mr Norwell said.

Whole new look for Marvel

Out of body experience: Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One gives Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr Steven Strange a push in Doctor Strange, rated M and in Hoyts cinemas now.Marvel Studios promised a whole new style for its latest offering and it sure delivered.
Nanjing Night Net

Doctor Strange feels quite unlike anything the studio has created before.

It’s a tighter origin story than Captain American, Thor or even Iron Man.

Itsclosest comparison visually is Guardians of the Galaxy, but even that’s a stretch.

Dr Steven Strange (Oscar-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch, inevitably finding himself in a superhero movie) himself has all the arrogance of Tony Stark without the one-liners to redeem himself.

The film introduces Strange, an exceptionally talented and intelligent surgeon, working at a hospital in New York.

He is condescending to those below him, flirts with his ex-girlfriend Christine (the incomparable Rachel McAdams) and thinks more highly of himself than he has a right to. But the good times can’t last, of course, and a devastating car crash (the likes of which Along Came a Spider could only dream of) leaves Strange horribly injured and unable to continue surgical work.

This is where the origin story really kicks in, with Strange travelling to Kathmandu, Nepal to seek a treatment which helped a former paraplegic get back on his feet, literally.

He meets the mysteriously named sorcerer The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton, causing controversy as a white woman playing a character portrayed in the comics as an Asian man), allies in Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor, always brilliant) and Wong (Benedict Wong, Ejiofor’s The Martian co-star) and learns some mysteries of the universe he never knew existed.

In Nepal the film takes a turn for the psychedelic, bringing the 1960s influences of the comics to the screen.

The visual effects are quite unlike anything we’ve seen in a superhero movie before –this feels rather more like a sci-fi adventure (think Jumper, Chronicle, Inception).

The consistently creepy Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) has a gleeful time as primary villainKaecilius and rocks the coolest make-up in the film.

Marvel has definitely stepped up its game with Doctor Strange and opened up the cinematic universe to uncharted territories.

Be sure to stick around for the post-credit scene to see a very familiar face.
