Giving Bali's Nightspots a Cold Shoulder
Call for Nightspots Along Bali's Ngurah Rai Bypass to Stop Guests Parking on Roadside
A member of the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali) is calling on nightspots along the busy Jalan Bypass Ngurah Rai, stretching from the Ngurah Rai Airport to Sanur, to stop using the shoulder of the road for visitor parking. Making the call is Wayan Rawan Atmaja who was quoted in Bali Post saying he has received many complaints from the public. “The cars can be parked on the side of the road for as far as one kilometre whenever there is a special event or concert by Jakarta artists,” he complained. The legislator from the Benoa area of South Bali continued, saying: “I am asking the relevant government agencies to take all necessary steps because the street side parking represents a danger to road users, especially on roads that are already congested. Atmaja, who also serves as the treasurer of Commission IV of the DPRD-Bali, called on the nightspots to obey all local regulations and not be guilty of acts that despoil the public interest. He used the opportunity to remind nightspot operators to increase attention to security, calling on all operators to heed past reports of violence and even homicides at some late night entertainment spots in Bali. Bali's zoning law stipulate that hotels, restaurants and nightspots must provide adequate off-street parking facilities for their customers. www.balidiscovery.com

Swamped with Questions
Growing Controversy Over He also claims that PT Tirta of tsunami. A p p a r e n t l y, t h e e n t i r e 55 Year Lease of South Bali's Rahmat Bahari, contrary to reports in the press, has yet to construct appointment process for PT Tirta Protected Mangrove Forest
There are growing questions regarding licenses granted by the province of Bali to a private company to develop South Bali's protected mangrove forest area. The provincial government of Bali is denying press reports that it has surrendered control of an 102.22-hectare tract of mangrove forest to a private investor. Quoted by the Indonesian National Press Agency Antara, the head of the forestry department of Bali, I Gede Nyoman Wiranatha, denied, that PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari now controlled the mangrove forest areas of south Bali, arguing that the company had only been issued with a principle permission to use 10% of the total mangrove (102.22 hectare) for the development of tourism services for 55 years. “That which will be developed for tourism services and infrastructure will not be more than 10% of the entire block of land used by PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari. This is in accordance with the rules. Meanwhile, the entire mangrove forest areas measures 1,373 hectares and the area under permit are in the block designated for development',” explained Wiranatha anything within the protected mangrove forest. Wiranatha said that the Rahmat Bahari did not include an open and competitive invitation for declarations of interest or a competitive selection process. The negotiation and agreement were also undertaken with no consultation of the Bali Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali). The lack of transparency and pre-consultation with the legislative branch is prompting calls from some quarters for the permit granted to PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari to be revoked to ensure that the mangrove forest of South Bali is carefully conserved. In rebuttal, Wiranatha said: “Those areas that are empty of trees at the Ngurah Rai Mangrove Forest will be used by the company for tourism services such as canoes, fishing ponds and alike. These facilities will not fundamentally change the character of the land. The existing tourism infrastructure, such as trekking trails, will be preserved and improved." He emphasized that the joint use under the agreement will allow a sharing of profits, which will be specified later under a joint venture agreement. www.balidiscovery.com

KUTA
Kuta is nestled between Jl. Bakungsari to the south and Jl. Melasti to the north. Kuta is the best known of all the villages in Bali, often maligned, Jl.

Footpaths didn't exist, open drains ran down the side of unmade roads. Shopping was sarongs and T-shirts and hawkers who sold just about anything. Times have changed and Kuta has grown up, gone are the unmade roads and open drains. Footpaths, although narrow, run both sides of the main streets. The hawkers are still there - part of the character of the place. Sarongs and T-shirts are still sold but now there are CD shops, boutiques, small trendy bars and restaurants and even Department Stores. Kuta boasts the world's first "themed" Hard Rock Hotel. Imagine going into a huge one level shopping centre that would take about 45 minutes to walk from one end to the other with small RV-1230 walkways branching off in every direction, now add cars, motorbikes and the odd temple ceremony.

mangrove areas was under the complete control of the provincial government of Bali and that PT Tirta Rahmat Bahari had been given a permit to establish a nature tourism enterprise in the Ngurah Rai Mangrove Forest measuring 102.22 hectares. Defending the province's decision in making the appointment, Wiranatha said that the company and the permits granted met all technical, judicial, conceptual, ecological and cultural criteria. The large tract of mangrove forests stretching from Sanur to Tanjung Benoa is viewed as environmentally critical, important to the cycle of sea life and as a strategic defense against the threat

JIMBARAN
Jimbaran is just south of the airport and Kuta. This was formerly a real backwater of south Bali, just a tiny fishing village with a daily market. That all started to change in the 1980s and Jimbaran is now home to several world class 5 star beach resorts, plus a few more moderate mid-market hotels. There is however little in the way of budget accommodation and there are also many high-end villas in this area, particularly on the ridges of high ground above Jimbaran Bay. This has resulted in monikers such as the "Beverly Hills of Bali" or "Millionaire's Row". The bay itself has a pleasant white sand beach and is very safe for swimming. The three clusters of grilled seafood restaurants on the beach are a major tourist draw in the evenings, as is the truly stunning sunset. Jimbaran is also home to a Norwegian University, Gateway College, with around 500 students studying athletics, philosphy, culture, economics and journalism. The school is located in Kedonganan close to Sari Segara Resort and in Jl, Bantas Kau where it also has a small cafe. Jimbaran has an increasing number of rather chic shops but there is little or no nightlife here. It has the advantage of being a little closer to Kuta and Seminyak and the cultural highlights of Central Bali.

BALI THE RIGHT WAY
Gday again folks and welcome to another week in paradise. The week that just passed us by so damned quickly is without a doubt one of the best seven days of weather we have had in almost a year. The days have been about perfect with the sky being that clear blue and the temperature being about as perfect as you could want for. The nights have cooled off with a touch of rain to wash away the dust from the day prior. I don't think anyone minds when it rains in the night as it leaves aliasj@kutaweekly.com the day for doing whatever it is you have to do and lets the place cool down while you sleep. If you have come up here on holidays and have hit this little patch of good weather, consider yourselves lucky, as it's not going to be long before the rain starts and when it does I have a feeling its gonna be a ripper wet season. It's easy to forget just how much it actually rains here in the tropics. Anyways moving along I have to report that the pressure hour was a great success for Crusoe's last Friday night, and the powers that be are happy for us all to come and get into a few this Friday night as well. I have to take my hat off to the fellow who held it till five minutes before the bell rang and I guess we should all thank him for doing that. The night was a funny one to say the least with a few surprises along the way. Thanks again to Mr Ron and staff for making it happen. Ok I will quickly reflect back to the letter we published from a reader last week as it seems we have a response to that from another reader. The second letter is as follows:
Good morning Aliasj, Just writing in response to last week's letter about Ma In Lo bar from Dick Brown and as far as I am concerned the piranha feeding is disgraceful. My wife and I took your advice and went along to see the feeding as you suggested and couldn't believe how cruel it was. The demise of the poor little gold fish & frogs leaves a lot to be desired and is certainly not something that you would take children to see. I suggest the publican buy the piranhas McD's or something similar. Yours sincerely, NAME WITHHELD ON REQUEST

This villa also comes with a maid's quarter, just in case you want to have a 24 hour maid on-site. The villa was build to Western Standard and interior was done by Mary Jane of Imagine Interior.

Price: USD 280,000 Location: Bukit

So there you have it folks, the feeding of Piranha's is not for everyone, and yes it is to a degree slightly cruel, however it is what my folks taught me was nature and unfortunately something that occurs in the wild every day. I'm sorry you feel that way about the public feeding of these fish and will most certainly be discussing the feeding schedule with the publican at some point (NOT). I think it was hysterical as the little gold fish swam for its life and got munched by twenty hungry piranhas, but I guess that's what makes us all different. Rock on Ma In Lo Bar and Restaurant and thanks for your support. Ok folks I will let you go and do whatever it is you do for the week. I do hope all the people that are lucky enough to be on the island this week have a minutes silence in memory of the souls that were lost 10 years ago, and reflect back on the Bali of yesteryear. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always remember, “Debts are like children, the smaller they are the more noise they make.” Enjoy Your Week, ALIASJ………..

The Bali Post reports that around 450 people die each year at Bali's Sanglah General Hospital from head injuries sustained in traffic accident on the island's roads. The head of the surgical-neurology unit at Sanglah Hospital, Dr. Sri Maliawan, confirmed the number of 450 annual fatalities due to serious head trauma. He said that technological advances open the way for the number of fatalities due to serious head injury to be reduced. But, despite these improvements, the number of fatalities continues to climb. Improvements in regional hospitals means that head trauma cases once sent to Sanglah are now often sent to other hospitals meaning the total number of deaths may well be far above 400. Dr. Maliawan said that in a single year over 2,000

patients with head injuries are treated at Bali's Estimated 450 Traffic Accident Victims Die Sanglah Hospital with about 300 of that total undergoing from Head Injuries Each Year at Bali's surgery. A portion of these treated die from their injuries Sanglah General Hospital while a number of others are left paralysed. “Many of these people,” Dr. Muliawan explained, “are of a productive age making it very unfortunate if they are paralysed. “ Explaining that while the advances in neurosurgery now allow patients to be treated without surgery and with little discomfort, he bemoaned the fact that many people still take to the road without the needed safety equipment, such as helmets.

The best option for you will depend on your personal situation, the type of property, risk factors and the type of investment model. Even though it states in Indonesian law that foreigners are not allowed to hold a 'freehold' land title, there are ways that have been in practice for a number of years that enable foreigners to control a freehold title indirectly or to hold a leasehold title in their own name.

Or foreigner permanently domiciled in Indonesia, or a foreign legal entity with a representative office in Indonesia such as foreign Banks, embassies, etc.

NOMINEE SYSTEM FOR HAK MILIK
This structure is a regularly practiced procedure in Indonesia, whereby the foreigner nominates and Indonesian representative to acquire the land and to hold the 'freehold' title (Hak Milik) on behalf of the foreigner. Ownership of the land is transferred from the previous owner to the Indonesian nominee. The foreigner and the Indonesian nominee then sign an agreement which recognizes the Indonesian nominee as the legal owner of the property whilst declaring the foreigner as the rightful owner of the property. This agreement denotes that the Indonesian nominee will carry out any directives from the foreigner regarding the land. This agreement must always be concluded in the presence of a public notary.

Concern Grows Over Commercial Subdivision of UNESCO Heritage Areas Surrounding Jatiluwih Rice Terraces
A special committee of legislators from the Tabanan House of Representatives (DPRD-Tabanan) reviewing the provincial zoning law (RTRW) recently surveyed the Jatiluwih rice terraces at Penebel, Tabanan – elevated to a World Heritage Status by UNESCO. As reported by Radar Bali, the surprise visit to the area by the regency's zoning team, encountered numerous signs offering plots of agricultural lands for sale. In the community of Gunung Sari that forms a part of the Jatiluwih Heritage Area, road side signs in English offer“Land for Sale.” Sixteen two-are plots of land were on sale at a price of Rp. 65 million (US$6.850) per are. An are of land is 100 square meters in size. A member of the legislative zoning team, Ida Bagus Kade Adnyana Suryawan, told the press: “I see that there are plots of land for sales. If such sales are permitted, there will be more parcels of land offered for sale. What's clear this is not in line with the government's plan to preserve and keep green Jatiluwih.

the subject of land sales. Another member of the delegation from the DPRD-Tabanan, Edy Wirawan, also expressed his disappointment with the ongoing subdivision of agricultural lands surrounding the Jatiluwih rice terraces. “If these plots of land are used for local structures, such as Balinese bale, then it's alright.” His view is that local-style buildings will add to the natural attraction of the area. A local community leader defended the sale of roadside lands in Jatiluwih, saying the lands are intended for the construction of homes. He told legislators that while the sale of these lands is not forbidden, local authorities are urging that the lands be kept in an agricultural use and not developed with structures and buildings. Meanwhile, village officials are lobbying the legislators to reduce the size of current green zones in which no construction is allowed. Under the current regulations, the “no-build green zone” is measured 1 kilometre from the boundaries of rice fields. Village officials, however, want the tract of land surrounding rice fields designated “green zones” reduced to just 300 meters to permit the people of Jatiluwih to commercially develop their lands. www.balidiscovery.com

Taurus – April 21 to May 21
Are you confused about which path to follow in the future? Pay close attention to your nightly dreams. They are full of creative ideas and symbolic wisdom that will lead you in the right direction. Taurean painters, writers, musicians, photographers and performers will feel particularly inspired this week, as you tune into the magical muse within. Romance is also in the air.

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
The more you shake up your usual routine, the better the week will be. With Saturn moving slowly through your sign, avoid being too hard on yourself – and don't be over-sensitive to the criticism of others. Instead, heed the advice of birthday great Eleanor Roosevelt “No-one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” It's time for Scorpios to shine!

Gemini – May 22 to June 21
It's the perfect time to clean, de-clutter and beautify your domestic space. Attached Twins – if you are having partnership problems, be proactive about finding solutions. Singles – with Mars in your relationship zone [until November 17] don't be shy about pursuing someone who you fancy. Friends and finances are a messy mix on the weekend, so keep them separate.

Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
You start the week at a cracking pace, as the Sun and Jupiter jump start your Sagittarian motor [and increase your impatience]. Slow down or you'll blow a fuse! With lucky Jupiter in your partnership zone, joint ventures are favored. Be inspired by John Lennon [born on October 9] “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.”

Cancer – June 22 to July 23
Cancers can be very defensive. But perhaps it's time to discard your crusty Crab shell and show the world your caring, sharing side? This week, a relationship has the chance to deepen and become more meaningful. So don't be afraid to let your guard down and get close to someone special. Singles – look for lasting love with a charming Capricorn or a sexy Scorpio.

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20

The spotlight is on your professional performance, as Jupiter and the Sun stimulate your work zones. Exciting opportunities are on the horizon, so keep your eyes and ears open. If you combine a positive outlook with a solid work ethic, then you'll be unstoppable. Are you worried about money? The more creative and canny you are with cash, the more your bank balance will grow.

Leo – July 24 to August 23
This week you need to reign in your extravagant side, temper your indulgences, and learn the lessons of moderation and balance [especially at work]. The Sun and Jupiter encourage you to make hasty moves, but be careful you're not just jumping from the frying pan into the fire. Try to walk the middle path Lions. Too much of anything will only get you into trouble.

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
Aquarians are restless for adventure. Outdoor activities appeal, plus it's the perfect time to plan your next holiday. On Sunday you'll surprise others with your idiosyncratic ideas and spontaneous schemes. You're in the mood to ruffle a few feathers, as you go looking for fun and excitement. Be careful who you target though – some people will definitely not be amused!

Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Virgos are natural critics but it's time to criticize less and encourage more, as you celebrate small successes. With Venus vamping through your sign [until October 28] you're in the mood to shimmer and shine socially, as you radiate charm and subtle sensuality. Plus the Sun and Jupiter bless business deals and financial transactions, so start negotiating now.

Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Have you fallen in love with a perfect angel? You're idealizing your partner, but try to love their human side as well [flaws and all]. Soon they'll come tumbling down from the pedestal you've put them on, and that's when the real relationship will begin. Single Fish – look for someone who you can really talk to. Deep and meaningful communication is the key to lasting love.

A graduate has found a job with a difference working as a human scarecrow. Real life Worzel Gummidge, 22-year old Jamie Fox spends his days sitting, reading and strumming his ukulele. But he leaps into action when birds begin to circle, scaring them with his bright orange coat, accordion and cow bell. Mr Fox, who studied music and English at Bangor University, is halfway through a fortnight long stint scaring partridges from a field of oilseed rape near Aylsham, Norfolk. Mr Fox said he enjoys being out in the fresh air and, while some friends are bemused by his new job, others are envious. He said: "I get to sit and read for a lot of the time, but whenever the partridges appear I have to get up and scare them off. "I ring a cowbell and I've even played the accordion, but the ukulele

Worzel Gummidge was a fictional scarecrow that came to life on Scatterbrook Farm in a 1979-81 television series of the same name. But he was a hopeless scarecrow as he spent most of his time trying to woo a fairground doll called Aunt Sally instead of scaring crows. Farmer William Youngs employed Mr Fox because conventional birdscarers had not worked. He said: "We have tried bangers to scare them off but the partridges always return. “Jamie's doing a good job.

This year's event features 20 Open Men's 10's teams, 6 Open Women's 7's teams and 8 Indonesian Men's 7's teams and will be the largest rugby tournament ever h e l d i n Indonesia.
Hot favourites for the Open Men's 10's division is the Country King Brown's from Australia. This team features ex Wallabies, NRL stars and up and coming Aussie talent. It won't be easy for the star studded team, with several sides from Australia, Singapore and Indonesia gunning for the coveted XP Cup. These include Nedlands from Perth, the Bush Turkeyz from the top end of Australia, Wanderers from Singapore and the French expat outfit, Gaulois, also from Singapore. Flying the flag for Indonesia will be the boys from the Big Durian, the Jakarta Komodos, and the home team and 2 time defending Plate Champions, the Bali Chillis. The Women's competition will be contested between 3 teams from Singapore and 1 side each from Taiwan, Malaysia and Australia respectively. Last year saw the Bush Turkeyz ladies completely dominate the opposition but Turkeyz supremo, Drew Weaver, has indicated that this year's side is missing a few of the Australian and Kiwi test players that made up the bulk of the 2011 side. Still, they will go into the weekend as the team to beat, followed closely by Royal Selangor Club from Malaysia and Singapore sides, Bucks and Bedok Skyllas. For the third successive year, the Xclusive Property Bali Rugby Fest will also host the PT Intraco Penta Tbk Indonesian National Men's 7's Championships. 8 sides will vie for the National 7s crown with 2 time and current national champions, Banteng from Jakarta, the top seed.

Blooper health posters recalled
Aboriginal health posters riddled with errors are destined for the paper shredder, leaving the taxpayer thousands of dollars out of pocket.
website, printing services for the Live Longer! Community Health Action Pack cost the federal government almost $20,000. "It is unacceptable and shouldn't have gone out," Indigenous Health Minister Warren Snowdon said in a statement. His spokesman said the cost for the design, artwork and printing of the 2000 female posters was $2060.83, but only 171 had been distributed.

The federal Department of Health has put out an immediate recall on 171 A3-sized posters of the female anatomy produced as part of the Labor government's Live Longer campaign and sent to indigenous health services across the country. Opposition indigenous health spokesman Andrew Laming said the posters were a "fiasco", with embarrassing errors such as the lungs labelled stomach, an extra pancreas and ovaries labelled kidneys, along with arrows in the wrong places. "The oesophagus (food tube) runs into the lung," Dr Laming said in a statement. "The ureters look like they join to the small intestine instead of the kidneys and the bladder is sitting on top of the uterus." The left kidney is incorrectly depicted in front of the intestine and the pancreas appears to be inside the stomach, he said. "The lack of any attention to detail in these posters is an insult to the (indigenous people) who were the target audience for this material," Dr Laming said. A spokeswoman for the Department of Health and Ageing says the department regrets the inaccuracies in the female poster, but "we believe that the male poster is anatomically correct and is a useful tool for its intended purpose". She said the diagram is a simple two-dimensional representation of some aspects of human anatomy. "Without taking some liberty it would not be possible to indicate the site of these organs in a two dimensional picture." The posters were also reproduced digitally on CDs included in health action packs. The CDs are also being recalled at "minimal" cost, the spokeswoman said. According to the commonwealth's AusTender

In addition to the Manhattan site, there'll be locations with Ultrabooks set up in Sydney, Beijing, London and Tokyo. On Tuesday, Blaine donned his suit and clambered on top of a much smaller test coil. When a technician threw the switch, spidery blue lines of electric current shot up Blaine's suit and out of his gloved hands and head. At the unusual press conference, journalists were issued with earplugs to deal with the roar of the current and asked to move back out of what a technician called "the zap zone."

Researchers have opened ancient graves in a dilapidated Florence convent as they search for the remains of Leonardo da Vinci's model for Mona Lisa.
A team of experts has been working in the Saint Orsola convent since April. They believe the body of the woman who modelled for da Vinci back in the 16th century is buried there. The real Mona Lisa, Italian art historians say, was Lisa Gherardini, the wife of a rich Florentine silk merchant named Francesco del Giocondo, who is thought to have commissioned the portrait although there is no proof of this. The researchers say that if they can find her skull, they will be able to reconstruct her face and compare it with the painting. "If everything goes as planned, we will find Gherardini and with her skull we will be able to reconstruct her face thanks to some sophisticated technology," said Silvano Vinceti, head of the National Committee for the Promotion of Historic and Cultural Heritage.

to draw other conclusions." Researchers say Gherardini spent the last years of her life at the convent, looked after by her two daughters who were nuns, and was buried there. They are hoping the project will reveal crucial information about the bodies buried in the convent. "The first phase of the work consists of opening up the remains as much as possible. Then we need to collect information about the manner of burial," anthropologist Irene Baldi said. "Whether the bodies were moved here from another place or buried in a container, if there was a coffin or not, or a cushion under the head, this is the information that we are searching for." Gherardini might have been an early model for the Mona Lisa, but da Vinci was probably also inspired by the face of his young male apprentice, Gian Giacomo Caprotti, who some say was his lover. It is not clear how long the project to study Gherardini's remains will take before coming to any conclusion.

Bones of Mona Lisa model found
After that we will be able to compare the face to that of Mona Lisa and maybe for the first time will get an answer which will be based on highly sophisticated technology which does not make errors.

The song was a worldwide hit, charting number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, number two on the R&B charts and the Disco Top 100, and number seven in the UK Singles Chart. The song is credited as Queen's best selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies. This version was ranked at number 34 on Billboard's All Time Top 100. American author and music journalist Nicholas Schaffner described the musical style of the song as being funk rock in his 1982 book The British Invasion: From the First Wave to the New Wave. History The bass line was inspired by the song "Good Times" by the disco group Chic. In an interview with New Musical Express, Chic co-founder Bernard Edwards stated, "...that Queen record came about because that Queen bass player... spent some time hanging out with us at our studio". Recording sessions were produced by Reinhold Mack at Musicland Studios in Munich (West Germany) and consisted of Deacon playing almost all the instruments: bass, piano, rhythm and lead guitars and handclap percussion. Roger Taylor added a drum loop and Brian May contributed some noises with his guitar and an Eventide Harmonizer. There are no synthesisers used in the song: all effects are created with pianos, guitars, and drums, with subsequent tape playback performed in reverse at various speeds. Finally, some sound effects were run through the harmonizer for further processing. The effect of the harmoniser can be heard clearly in the "swirling" nature of the sound immediately before the first lyric. After attending a Queen concert in Los Angeles, Michael Jackson suggested to Freddie Mercury backstage that "Another One Bites the Dust" be released as a single. The earlier live performances of the song had drummer Roger Taylor on lead vocals during the chorus, as opposed to the album version which was sung by Mercury in its entirety. In later performances, parts of the chorus were sometimes not sung by any member of the band, letting the audience sing it instead. The song garnered Queen a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The band lost to Bob Seger's album Against the Wind. The music video for "Another One Bites the Dust" was filmed at Reunion Arena in Dallas, Texas. This song is played when the Chicago Bulls win a home game. Alleged backward masking In the early 1980s, "Another One Bites the Dust" was one of many popular rock songs that Christian evangelists alleged contained subliminal messages through a technique called backward masking. It was claimed that the chorus, when played in reverse, will be heard as "decide to smoke marijuana" or "It's fun to smoke marijuana". A spokeswoman for Hollywood Records (Queen's current US label) has denied that the song contains a backward message. Queen comments on the record “ I'd been wanting to do a track like 'Another One Bites The Dust' for a while, but originally all I had was the line and the bass riff. Gradually, I filled it in and the band added ideas. I could hear it as a song for dancing but had no idea it would become as big as it did. The song got picked up off our album and some of the black radio stations in the US started playing it, which we've never had before. Michael Jackson actually suggested we release it as a single. He was a fan of ours and used to come to our shows. ” —John Deacon In 1996, Queen Dance Traxx and German Eurodance group Captain Jack covered the song for the album Queen Dance Traxx 1 and released it as a single in October 1996. The song reached number 5 in Finland and peaked at number 12 in the Netherlands. It also reached number 33 in Austria, number 41 in Belgium and number 66 in Germany. The music video for this version was directed by Rudi Dolezal and was filmed in Berlin, Germany. In 1998, American rapper Wyclef Jean covered and remixed the song for the film Small Soldiers. His version also features rap verses from Pras Michel and Free, and music by Queen. The track also appears on Queen's compilation Greatest Hits III, released in 1999, and on Pras' debut album, Ghetto Supastar, released in 1998. Background It enjoyed the most success in the United Kingdom, where it entered the chart at number 5, it's highest chart position, going on to spend six weeks on the chart.[22] It also reached the top ten in Finland. It charted number 18, number 23, number 50 and number 62 in New Zealand, Austria, Sweden and France, respectively. The music video for this version was directed by Michel Gondry. The song became Pras' third United Kingdom Top 10 hit from his debut solo album Ghetto Supastar, following the title track and follow-up single Blue Angels. However, Pras was not available for the filming of the video, and rapper Canibus recorded a new verse to take his place. This version was used only for the promotional video.

"Whilst they are not strictly a missing link in our own evolution, they give an insight into what the lifestyle of our remote ancestors might have been like."

Scientists coined the name after large lips on either side of the creature's head reminded them of the Jedi master's floppy ears.

I'm a 52 year old male and I've been off and on with this girl who's 29 for 21/2 years. When we met things were great, but then I found out she was lying about sleeping with this guy. We had problems & broke up, got back together and stayed together and happy for about 9 months. Then we broke up, she hated me for a w h i l e a n d w e n t b a c k t o s e e i n g t h a t s a m e g u y. Then she dated another guy, and the whole time has been telling me that she loves me and wants to work on things with me and was breaking up with that guy for me. She finally broke up with him. I constantly give her whatever emotion she wants and all I get back is anger. She gets mad when I try to kiss her or touch her besides cuddling. I feel like she's not attracted to me. We literally can't talk about anything because every time I ask a question she goes “Why don't we just not talk about it?” in a very aggressive voice. Then she yells at me. I would really like things to work out with this girl, because I see a special spark in her that I don't normally see. I don't know why but I find very few people attractive and I feel rather despondent and heart broken about this entire situation. I feel like the best thing for me to do is just leave her but it's hard. Matty Dear Matty, Leave! You are uncommitted, you don't have children or property together. You have nothing to lose by leaving. Your girlfriend treats you like shit and you should never ever put up with being treated like shit by someone especially someone supposed to love you. Your girlfriend lacks integrity, manners and maturity. She's rude, she's aggressive and she's a bully. She also wants to be in an intimate relationship with you but won't allow sex?? You have absolutely nothing to lose by leaving and everything to gain dear. This relationship is not worth working at. It's not worth trying again. If you decide to try you should tell her you care about her but the way she speaks to you and behaves towards you is unacceptable much of t h e t i m e a n d y o u w o n ' t p u t u p w i t h i t a n y m o re . The first few times she gets angry say “in case you weren't sure this is what I was talking about. Stand up to her and say “this is not arguing this is bullying, from you. This is not a disagreement - see I am not arguing - this is you being disrespectful again and again and again. A n d i f i t k e e p s u p I ' l l l e a v e .

Beach closed as croc goes for a swim
A large crocodile has forced the closure of a far-north Queensland beach. About 50 people had to be called out of the water when the 4m saltwater crocodile was spotted swimming within 100m of the shore at Ellis Beach, north of Cairns. The beach was closed for several hours. Ellis Beach is just a few kilometres from Kewarra Beach, where a crocodile killed a fisherman's dog in front of horrified onlookers last month. A 3m crocodile was found beheaded a few days after the Kewarra Beach attack. Last week authorities removed a 2.7m crocodile from Kewarra Beach. The Queensland Government has said it is developing a plan for crocodile management in the far north.

Defending world champion Sebastian Vettel won an incident-packed Japanese Grand Prix on Sunday to slash the Formula One title race to just four points. The Red Bull driver got away from pole position to take the chequered flag ahead of Ferrari's Felipe Massa and Kamui Kobayashi of Sauber, after championship leader Fernando Alonso spun out on the first corner. Vettel also won in Singapore last month, reviving his hopes of sealing a hat-trick of world titles. His Australian Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber started second on the grid but was shunted on the first turn by Romain Grosjean and dropped back to 22nd before recovering to finish ninth. Australian Daniel Ricciardo took the final point for Toro Rosso, denying Michael Schumacher a top 10 placing in what was the German's final Japanese appearance before retirement at the end of the season. "It was an important step today but there's still a long way," said Vettel after holding aloft the winner's trophy and making the familiar raised-forefinger gesture as number one. "These things happen and obviously you don't hope for those things to happen to yourself," he added of Alonso's exit into the gravel following contact with former Ferrari champion Kimi Raikkonen's Lotus.

Glencadam Gold is now all but assured of a Caulfield Cup start after being penalised 2kg for his Metropolitan Handicap win.
The former English stayer surged into Cup favouritism after his dominant win at the weekend, but he still needed a penalty to force his way into the field. He will now be asked to carry 53.5kg, placing him equal 21st in the order of entry for the Caulfield Cup on October 20. The Cup field is capped at 18 plus three emergencies, but a number of likely defectors at tomorrow's third acceptances will see Glencadam Gold clear the cutoff mark. Glencadam Gold had already been penalised 1.5kg for his win in the Newcastle Cup, and his Metropolitan win leaves him undefeated in four starts for Gai Waterhouse.

Graham guilty of biting charge
The Bulldogs' grand final hangover got worse on last week after forward James Graham was found guilty of biting the Storm's Billy Slater and banned for 12 matches.
In a hearing that went for more than two hours in total, video of the incident was shown to the judiciary. Graham was questioned both by his own defence counsel matches - which will likely include two trial games and two England internationals. The earliest he will be available to play NRL is likely to be round nine next year. Outside the hearing Graham did not speak Greenberg made a brief statement and took no questions. "We're extremely disappointed with the result," for the Bulldogs. The biting incident occurred in the 25th minute of the grand final between the Bulldogs and Melbourne, following the Bulldogs' only try of the match to Sam Perrett. A melee formed after Melbourne full-back Slater was pushed to the ground. Slater and Graham ended up wrestling surrounded by a pack of players, and it was alleged that Graham bit Slater's left ear. The England international surprised many by pleading not guilty to an ungraded dangerous contact offence, given that TV footage from the game appeared to clearly show Graham biting Slater's ear. The charge had been referred straight to the NRL judiciary because of its serious nature. By opting against a guilty plea, Graham was ineligible for a 25 per cent reduction of the final penalty. Earlier this week Greenberg had admitted the footage of Graham's alleged attack on Slater was "damning". "It's difficult obviously because the pictures are quite damning," Greenberg told Triple M radio on Tuesday. The penalty was more severe than the two most recent incidents of biting in the NRL. Gold Coast full-back William Zillman received a four-match ban in 2009, while two years earlier former Bulldogs forward Brad Morrin was banned for eight matches.

Webber slams 'nutcase' Grosjean
Angry Australian Mark Webber branded Romain Grosjean a "first-lap nutcase" on Sunday following a Japanese Grand Prix collision that wrecked the Red Bull driver's hopes of a podium finish. Webber lined up on the front row of the grid alongside team mate and eventual winner Sebastian Vettel on pole position but contact with Grosjean in the opening seconds sent the Australian to the back of the field from where he fought back to ninth. "I haven't seen what happened at the start but the guys confirmed it was the first-lap nutcase again," Webber said of Frenchman Grosjean. "The rest of us are trying to fight for some decent results each weekend but he's trying to get to the third corner as fast as he can at every race. "It makes it frustrating because a few big guys obviously suffered from that today. Maybe he needs another holiday," he reportedly has said. Lotus driver Grosjean missed last month's Italian Formula One Grand Prix after being banned for causing a first corner pile-up at the previous race in Belgium. That accident sent his car flying over championship leader Fernando Alonso's Ferrari in a smash that ended the Spaniard's race. Alonso retired from Sunday's race at Suzuka after contact with the Lotus of Grosjean's team mate Kimi Raikkonen slashed a tyre and sent the Ferrari spinning onto the gravel. Webber is now 60 points behind Alonso with five races remaining. "He needs to have a look at himself," continued Webber of the Frenchman, who is in his first full season with Lotus. he told reporters. "I think it's the seventh incident that he's had this year and I think he needs to really talk to himself or his team need to talk to him because ... not only is it dangerous for others but he's cost himself and his team a colossal amount of points together with the innocent victims that he's collected en route. "Mark has every right to express his feelings," added

and by NRL prosecutor Peter Kite, declaring his innocence throughout. He also called former Parramatta and New Zealand NRL coach Daniel Anderson as a character witness. The evidence and statements portion of the hearing went for 90 minutes - after 10 minutes' deliberation, the panel returned a guilty verdict against the Bulldogs player. The length of the suspension was then discussed, including reference to comparable incidents, before further deliberations and then the final decision was handed down. Graham will miss 12

Greenberg said. He told reporters that the club and Graham had gone to the hearing not to spin events, but to tell the truth. Goldberg said Graham had declared his innocence and the chief executive had had "no hesitation" in putting his own and the club's reputation on the line by supporting the appeal. "We were afforded a fair and just process, we disagree with the result but not with the process," Goldberg said. "James is obviously shattered with the result - he will miss the chance to captain his country," he said, adding that Graham would miss a substantial part of next season

"It was completely his fault. How many mistakes can you make, how many times can you make the same error with first lap incidents? It's quite embarrassing at this level for him." Red Bull team principal Christian Horner sympathised with his driver and said it was "completely unacceptable" for Grosjean to be having so many incidents. "It just looked like Grosjean completely misjudged where Mark was,"

Horner, whose team lead the constructors' standings and have Vettel just four points behind Alonso. Horner said Grosjean, who had started on the row behind Webber and was handed a 10 second stop/go penalty for causing the collision, was clearly a repeat offender despite the past punishment. "The most worrying thing is he doesn't appear to be learning from his mistakes," said the team boss.

Kangaroos to copy Storm game plan
Australia will use Melbourne's grand final blueprint to shut down New Zealand's feared forward pack spearheaded by Bulldogs giants Sam Kasiano and Frank Pritchard in Saturday night's Test in Townsville. Kangaroos prop Matt Scott says the Storm's grand final game plan had smothered the brutal Bulldogs forwards en route to posting a 14-4 triumph. The aggressive style of the Kiwis' 133-kilogram Test rookie Kasiano and the power-running Pritchard helped sweep the Bulldogs to the grand final but Storm coach Craig Bellamy devised a strategy that restricted their impact in the season decider. "The Storm are very good at controlling possession and strangling sides, that's what they did to the Bulldogs," Scott said. "It would be great if we could put together a game of footy like that. "Melbourne completed their sets and had a very good kicking game [on the back of Test stars Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith]. "If you do those things right you can limit what they (Kiwis) can do with the footy." K a n g a r o o s c o a c h Ti m Sheens has hinted complacency could be an issue, but both Scott and fellow prop Dave Shillington declared wearing the green and gold is an honour that no player should take for granted. Scott, who will partner another James Tamou in the front row against the Kiwis, says there is always pressure within the side from you've got to put your hand up and do your job well." The emotion of playing at home in front of his family will also drive Scott after he missed the Test against New Zealand earlier this year. The North Queensland cocaptain will also dedicate the match to the memory of his mother Dianne, who passed away during the State of Origin series in June. "It's special, it's hard to put into words what it means," Scott said. "I know there's a lot of people coming in from out of town and out west where I'm from. "I've got family coming up and it's very special for the region, which have embraced it and I'm just glad I can be a part of it." Shillington says he gets excited just pulling on his training gear. "When I put on the jersey I'll be jumping out of my skin to get on the field," he said. "If you take a game like this lightly, you can get pretty embarrassed because they've got a pretty good team who are big and experienced with seven players who were involved in the grandfinal."

Day falls short of perfection
Australian Jason Day flirted with golfing perfection over the first nine holes before coming down to earth with a resounding bump after the turn in the Las Vegas Open final round on Monday .
In pursuit of an unlikely victory in the opening event of the PGA Tour's Fall Series, Day knew he needed to shoot an unthinkable 58 to give himself a "sniff" at a second victory on the U.S. circuit. The 24-year-old went into the final round a distant seven strokes off the pace but tore apart the TPC Summerlin layout in near-perfect scoring conditions with a scorching front nine of seven-under-par 28. Day surprisingly missed a three-foot birdie putt at the 10th that would have earned him a share of the lead, then missed several more chances before ending his round with a double-bogey after finding water with his second shot at the last. "The only blemish was obviously the missed green on 18, but I thought I was going to shoot 59 today just the way things were going," Day told reporters after closing with a six-under 65 to finish alone in fourth, six shots behind winner Ryan Moore. "I was hitting it good; I was putting it good, too. I just didn't capitalise on the opportunities I had on the back nine." Day always knew his chances of victory in the Nevada desert were very slim after heading into the final round so far back but he still had a target in mind. "Probably 58 I'm guessing that I had to shoot," he said. "We picked 24 (under par as the winning total). "I was thinking 58 to try and at least have a sniff at it." Asked about his squandered birdie opportunity at the par-four 10th, Day replied: "I can think about all the putts that I missed today. During the first three rounds I missed a ton as well. "But I'm very excited the way I played over the last two days, even the last four days. I'm looking forward to McGladrey's. You know, I feel like I'm going to win soon." Day, whose only PGA Tour victory came at the 2010 Byron Nelson Championship, will next compete at the October 18-21 event at Simons Island in Georgia, the third of four events in the Fall Series.

Tippett has agreed to a fouryear contract offer to join the Swans, who began negotiating a deal with the Crows on Monday morning, as the AFL's trade period per cent salary cap allowance they get to counter the high cost of living in Sydney. Hawthorn president Andrew Newbold is among the critics but Ireland says the allowance is needed, and careful management and recent retirements have left them room for Tippett, who would take a pay cut in his first year with the Swans. "It's pretty offensive, I reckon," Ireland said of the Crows to honour an arrangement made three years ago to help him switch clubs. There are suggestions from Adelaide that this 'gentleman's agreement' only applied if Tippett moved back to Queensland, where he grew up. Meanwhile, Essendon has confirmed Angus Monfries has agreed to be traded to Port Adelaide. The Bombers will receive pick number 48 selection in the draft as part of the trade. Melbourne, who has the number three, four and 13 picks, is hoping to be one of the other prime movers in trade week. Its targets include midfielders Collingwood's S h a r r o d Wellingham and Gold Coast's Josh Caddy, neither of whom want to join the Demons. Wellingham wants to move to West Coast and Caddy a range of other Victorian clubs, but Demons list manager Tim Harrington says they still hope they could persuade the pair. The Demons are also targeting Collingwood key forward Chris Dawes. Other potential trades on the table include North Melbourne's Hamish McIntosh to Geelong, while St Kilda could also chase a significant player, given the salary cap space freed up by the free agency move of Brendon Goddard to the Bombers.

Whincup hangs on for Bathurst victory
Holden's Jamie Whincup survived a titanic challenge from Ford's David Reynolds to take the chequered flag in the 50th edition of the Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama.
Reynolds overtook James Courtney with 12 laps remaining in the 161-lap race to move into second place behind Whincup, before making up significant time to cut the lead to less than half a second. But Whincup, who started from second on the grid with codriver Paul Dumbrell, showed a cool head on the final lap to hang on for a thrilling win by just 0.31 over Reynolds, whose first time on the podium saw him joined by Dean Canto. Whincup adds the title to the three victories he shared as codriver to Craig Lowndes from 2006 to 2008. It also strengthens his lead on the V8 Supercars Championship standings. Bathurst 1000 Top 10 1. Jamie Whincup/Paul Dumbrell (Holden) 2. David Reynolds/Dean Canto (Ford) 3. Craig Lowndes/Warren Luff (Holden) 4. James Courtney/Cameron McConville (Holden) 5. Michael Caruso/Greg Ritter (Holden) 6. Jonathon Webb/Scott McLaughlin (Holden) 7. Tim Slade/Andrew Thompson (Ford) 8. Lee Holdsworth/Craig Baird (Ford) 9. Russell Ingall/Christian Klein (Holden) 10. Alex Davison/James Moffat (Ford) L o w n d e s , a k e y championship rival to Whincup, gave his legion of fans amongst the crowd of 57,939 something to celebrate by moving his Holden through the field to finish third with his co-driver Warren Luff. Courtney and Cameron McConville were fourth, one place ahead of another Holden pairing, Michael Caruso and Greg Ritter. Whincup admitted it was still anyone's race when Reynolds closed the gap in the final 10 laps. "We were juggling tyres, fuel economy, a window falling out," he told Grandstand. "Everything that Bathurst throws at you over the years we had it today. I just feel we grabbed this one with two hands and won the race." Whincup made note of how critical his fuel level was during the final lap. "It was literally 100 mils (millilitres), which we burn up in the straight lengths," he said. "It was tight, we had to run it to the limit. It's Bathurst. "We were predicting that it may have coughed at the second last corner and it could have been all over but we got there." Whincup's tyres too, almost did not make the distance. "They tyres were absolutely about to explode, how hot they were," he said. "So we just did enough to get there." Team effort Dumbrell also drew praise from Whincup, who made the point he would not have been able to get over the finish line without his codriver. "It was an unbelievable team effort today, we didn't have a weakest link," he said. "I think it is definitely important to understand that it's definitely a two-driver race. "I certainly don't want to take anything away from PD (Dumbrell). Without him no way would we have won the race. "It was a massive team effort, including inside the car driving." Dumbrell was equally glowing in his assessment of Whincup's performance, conceding his team-mate deserved the credit for the win. "I was the space between the steering wheel and the seat," he said. "You could interchange me with anyone." The 27-year-old Whincup joins Allan Moffat and Greg Murphy as four-time winners at Mount Panorama, while the victory is Dumbrell's first in his 12th start in the great race. At the other end of the field, another championship contender, Ford Performance Racing's Will Davison, started on pole and was leading in the early stages but endured a horror day. He and co-driver John McIntyre had to settle for a 24th place finish after Davison was lucky to survive when his brakes failed going into Conrod Straight and he was sent spearing across the track at over 250 kilometres per hour, narrowly missing a passing car on the track. Davison's team-mate Mark Winterbottom came in 11th after failing to get himself up to the front throughout the race and has relinquished second place in the championship to Lowndes. Defending champions Garth Tander and Nick Percat also had a shocking day, their title defence effectively ending in the 38th lap when their Holden Commodore was damaged following a collision with a wall at the top of the mountain. Percat was behind the wheel when it appeared to suffer a mechanical problem and despite the pair getting back on the track, the time lost to repair the vehicle left them out of contention.

officially opened. Both clubs were coy about what the Swans needed to put on the table, although Ireland says no premiership players will be given up. This suggests the Swans' top draft pick, number 22 overall, will need to be part of a deal. But Ireland has so far refused to commit to offering that pick. The fact that the Swans have salary cap room to chase a star player despite winning the flag has brought into question the extra 9.8

criticism. "We've been for the last decade fundamentally recruiting players from other clubs who weren't getting a game at those clubs. "We've got a cost of living allowance, it is clearly dearer in Sydney ... there's no slush fund from our allowance, every player on our list gets (an extra) 10 per cent." Ireland says Tippett is moving because he disliked the "fishbowl" environment in Adelaide and expected the
