Policies on Subsidized F u e l M a y threaten Bali's Plans to Keep Inflation Below 4.5%

Its All About Bali 31 Horoscopes 32

Bali remains optimistic that the rate of the inflation for the island through the end of 2012 will r e m a i n a t approximately 4.32%, somewhat lower than the 4.5% projected in the official provincial budget. Economist warn, however, that the rate of inflation could suddenly soar as a results of the government's plans to reduce the use of subsidized fuel. I Gede Suarsa, chief of the Bali Statistic Bureau, see the rate of inflation during the first half of 2012 as moderate. The second half of 2012

may suffer inflationary influences resulting from increases in prices for basic commodities, religious holidays and year-end holiday celebrations. As a member of the Regional Coordination Team for the Control of Inflation (TKPID), Suarsa said the team would work to keep the cumulative rate of inflation within plus or minus 4.5%. continue to page 2

Jackie Brock-Doyle, communications chief for the London Games organisers, said chief organiser Sebastian Coe had asked the queen to appear in the film. "Not much persuading" was required to convince her, she said. "I think she really liked the whole concept that Danny (Boyle) had put together," she said. The queen, as Britain's head of state, officially opened the Games during the ceremony. She was back at the Olympic Park on Saturday, visiting the viewing tower, the Aquatics Centre, the Athletes' Village and its canteen. The queen entering the helicopter was played by "Miss Marple" actress Julia McKenzie, while the monarch jumping from the chopper was played by professional stuntman Gary Connery. The show-stopping sequence was kept a closelyguarded secret. An English newspaper ran a story largely revealing the involvement of the queen and Craig on April 1 which led many to believe it was an April Fool's Day joke.

Press reports suggest that Batavia Air will be purchased at a price of US$80 million. Batavia Air operates 33 aircraft comprised of 15 Boeing B737-300s, nine Boeing B737400s, one Boeing B737-500s, one Airbus A321, five Airbus A320s and two Airbus 330s. 18 planes of the Batavia Air fleet are owned by the airline with the remaining aircraft on lease.

A real helicopter then appeared over the Olympic Stadium during Friday's spectacular and parachutists playing Bond and the queen jumped out, just before the real monarch entered the stadium, wearing the same outfit. The sequence was one of the show's highlights and was noteworthy because the queen has never acted on film before. Nicholas Brown, the BBC's director of drama production, said the sovereign gave a flawless performance. "She got it in one take," "That's what she does, and she does it very well.

When South Korean fencer Shin Lam lost to German Britta Heidemann in the women's pe semi-final she took it pretty badly. In fact, Lam was so gutted that she launched a 90-minute sitdown protest.
To be fair, Lam had reason to feel pretty aggrieved; she had thought she was through to the final when, to her consternation, the clock was reset from zero to one second. Heidemann, the reigning Olympic champion, then scored the winning hit. Shim Jaesung, the Korean coach, immediately made an appeal and it was nearly half an hour before it was announced to the crowd slow-clapping by this stage that Heidemann's win stood. It is being described as one of the biggest sporting controversies of the Games so far.

day again readers and here we go again for another crack at a weekly rant. It's been a big week in London with the games underway after all that prep work we got to see the queen jump from a helicopter with James bond to attend and officially open the event. The opening ceremony on Saturday morning for all its pomp and ceremony was, I think, arguably one of the worst I have seen in years. I don't clearly understand what significants Mary Poppins has on the whole thing nor did I expect to get a history lesson or listen to some rap artist doing his thing. I expected a more traditional approach as is normal with most other countries efforts, but at any rate who am I to question. There were a few good bits as in the five Olympic rings made from what looked like molten steel that were raised above the stadium and showered the ground with a massive amount of fireworks, along with a huge fireworks spectacular towards the end, but, for the most part of it my attention was lost. Possibly it was too early for my brain to function correctly or it could have been the little green bottles that jaded my vision. I take the opportunity to thank the Y-Bar for showing the opening ceremony and also say thanks to the staff for being there that early. Over the last few weeks there has been a heap of stuff going on, hence, I haven't written about the A.F.L footy in my little article, and un be known's to myself I had (not intentionally) left out any mention of some great wins that have been had in my weekly football commentary for two weeks, which my fellow punters, seems to have caused a little stress to a few of our readers. The editor fielded a few calls to the Kuta Weekly's office this week and we received a few email to the same regard. The following is one email we received during the week. Dear, sir/madam it was with deep sadness that in your latest Kuta Weekly i never read anything about my beloved hawks sterling effort over the mighty pies. first i may ask , was it just an oversight from aliasj or secondly was the said aliasj in deep shock or thirdly is aliasj maybe a wee bit biased? i will still remain an avid reader of the Kuta aliasj weekly albeit a little bit pissed of! regards from the Ferret ps carn the hawks. So there you go folks, it seems the Ferret was a little put out that I didn't write about the football for a few weeks and clearly thinks that I am a little bit one eyed in my ramblings regarding the Mighty Pies. I will say now that I most definitely have two eyes, one is black and one is white and that's never going to change, but, I can tell by the punctuation and crude spelling that this reader is an avid Hawks fan and do hope to be seeing many more valuable emails from all fans in the months leading up to the finals. Thanks again for the contribution Mr Ferret and I look forward to the potential clash at the grand final between the Hawks and Pies. Ok folks I have nothing more to say this week as it's been slim picking with the exception of the games and I sincerely hope the Aussie team does really well against the rest of the world. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always remember, The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them. Enjoy Your Week, ALIASJ.

A Chinese farmer says he has spent two years riding nearly 60,000 kilometres through 16 countries on a rickshaw to reach London in time for the Olympic Games.
Chen Guanming, 57, said his goal had been to "spread the Olympic spirit" on his journey through war zones, floods, and extreme temperatures in countries including Taiwan, Turkey and Iraq. "During this rickshaw journey, I've travelled through 16 countries, and a distance of more than 40,000 miles," Mr Chen said from London's central Soho district, a day before the Games began. "I wanted to arrive on time for the opening ceremony. "I had to face both floods and very hot and dry conditions." He added: "Londoners are very welcoming, the city is welcoming the whole world in a very nice way." It was not possible to independently verify his account of his journey or how he managed to go through so many countries.

The suite was developed during live performances and was premiered several months before studio recording began. The new material was recorded in two sessions in 1972 and 1973 at Abbey Road Studios in London. The group used some of the most advanced recording techniques of the time, including multitrack recording and tape loops. Analogue synthesizers were given prominence in several tracks, and a series of recorded interviews with the band's road crew and others provided the philosophical quotations used throughout. Engineer Alan Parsons was directly responsible for some of the most notable sonic aspects of the album, and the recruitment of non-lexical performer Clare Torry. The album's iconic sleeve features a prism that represents the band's stage lighting, the record's lyrical themes, and keyboardist Richard Wright's request for a "simple and bold" design. The Dark Side of the Moon was an immediate success, topping the Billboard Top LPs & Tapes chart for one week. It subsequently remained in the charts for 741 weeks from 1973 to 1988. With an estimated 50 million copies sold, it is Pink Floyd's most commercially successful album and one of the bestselling albums worldwide. It has twice been remastered and re-released, and has been covered in its entirety by several other acts. It spawned two singles, "Money" and "Time". In addition to its commercial success, The Dark Side of the Moon is one of Pink Floyd's most popular albums among fans and critics, and is frequently ranked as one of the greatest rock albums of all time.

Each side of the album is a continuous piece of music. The five tracks on each side reflect various stages of human life, beginning and ending with a heartbeat, exploring the nature of the human experience, and (according to Waters) "empathy" "Speak to Me" and "Breathe" together stress the mundane and futile elements of life that accompany the ever-present threat of madness, and the importance of living one's own life "Don't be afraid to care". By shifting the scene to an airport, the synthesizer-driven instrumental "On the Run" evokes the stress and anxiety of modern travel, in particular Wright's fear of flying. "Time" examines the manner in which its passage can control one's life and offers a stark warning to those who remain focused on mundane aspects it is followed by a retreat into solitude and withdrawal in "Breathe (Reprise)". The first side of the album ends with Wright and vocalist Clare Torry's soulful metaphor for death, "The Great Gig in the Sky". Opening with the sound of cash registers and loose change, the first track on side two, "Money", mocks greed and consumerism using tongue-in-cheek lyrics and cash-related sound effects (ironically, "Money" has been the most commercially successful track from the album, with several cover versions produced by other bands). "Us and Them" addresses the isolation of the depressed with the symbolism of conflict and the use of simple dichotomies to describe personal relationships. "Brain Damage" looks at a mental illness resulting from the elevation of fame and success above the needs of the self in particular, the line "and if the band you're in starts playing different tunes" reflects the mental breakdown of former band-mate Syd Barrett. The album ends with "Eclipse", which espouses the concepts of alterity and unity, while forcing the listener to recognize the common traits shared by humanity. Sales


The Dark Side of the Moon became one of the best-selling albums of all time, (not counting compilations and various artists soundtracks), and is in the top 25 of a list of best-selling albums in the United States. Although it held the number one spot in the US for only a week, it remained in the Billboard album chart for 741 weeks. The album re-appeared on the Billboard charts with the introduction of the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart in May 1991, and has been a perennial feature since then.

T h e unidentified woman, dressed in a red top and blue pants, was seen walking alongside India's flag-bearer Sushil Kumar at Friday's ceremony even though she was not part of the contingent.

Thursday's Full Moon lights up your Brilliant Career zone, so you're keen to shine professionally. The more curious and experimental you are, the better the outcomes will be. Has your cash flow been erratic lately? With lucky Venus and prosperous Jupiter in your money zone, look for positive solutions. If you develop a second stream of income, you'll feel more secure.

Scorpio October 24 to November 22

The Full Moon stimulates your home zone, so expect the unexpected from loved ones. You'll also feel unsettled at work, as mischievous Mercury reverses through your career zone [until August 8]. On the weekend you're very tuned into the energy around you, and will pick up on the moods of others. So surround yourself with positive people, places and experiences.

Gemini May 22 to June 21

Communication and travel will be chaotic [courtesy of the Full Moon] but positive Jupiter aspects ensure that any trip you take will end up being both enjoyable and educational. With your ruler Mercury still in retrograde motion [until August 8] avoid making important decisions this week and stop worrying about something that may never actually eventuate.

Sagittarius November 23 to December 21

If you're having problems communicating with someone, a conventional approach won't work. Instead, be adventurous and think outside the box. Plus travel arrangements or legal matters may be delayed [yet again]. You're in the mood to communicate, converse, explore and enthuse on Thursday. So make the most of the lucky opportunities that come your way.

Cancer June 22 to July 23

You're running around multi-tasking but are you actually getting anything done? Shift down to cruise control Crabs! If you rush money matters, you could end up with a monumental mess on your hands. Trust is a big issue in a romantic or platonic relationship this week. Avoid the temptation to brood and hold onto grudges. Instead, find room in your heart to forgive and forget.

Capricorn December 22 to January 20

Saturn is testing your patience but, with ambitious Mars marching through your career zone, it's time to be brazenly bold at work. If you're not confident about your talents and abilities, why should anyone else be? The Full Moon and retrograde Mercury are causing mischief in your finance zones, so avoid making important money moves. Wait for a more auspicious time.

Leo July 24 to August 23

With Mercury reversing through your sign [plus the Full Moon stirring up your relationship zone] communication will be tricky, as loved ones tell you things you'd rather not hear. Your confidence won't be dampened though, as you combine an adventurous approach with innovative ideas. If you are creative and take calculated risks, you'll make pleasing

Aquarius January 21 to February 19

Attached Aquarians do you want more freedom, while your partner yearns for commitment? The only solution is to meet them somewhere in the middle. Singles look for love with a lusty Leo or a gregarious Gemini. Full Moon madness sees you at your eccentric best [and rebellious worst]. You're impatient for change, but don't throw the baby out with the bathwater!

Virgo August 24 to September 23

Vigilant Virgos are usually rational folk but you may feel mentally confused this week, as Mercury scrambles your antennae and you struggle to separate fact from fiction. So avoid making important decisions that require logical thinking and double-check all appointments. Plus put aside plenty of time for rest and relaxation, otherwise your stress levels will soar.

Pisces February 20 to March 20

It's a fabulous week for creative Piscean projects and spiritual exploration, as Thursday's Full Moon activates your intuition and imagination zone.

surprised to find it tangled in the underwear. 'We got it early enough,' he said. 'Quite possibly, given that it was fabric, it would have rotted off, but you can never tell.' The local man who initially spotted the seal, scrambling up a 230-metre David Johnston, advised cliff, marine ranger Jim Fyfe finally people discarding an item that 'if it caught up with the seal and was forms a loop, cut it'. But the study showed that his behaviour may not have been all that unusual. Historical data shows that crew members 'have a higher survival rate than passengers and that only nine of 16 captains went down with their ships', said the study. In disasters when the captain took the lead in alerting the shipwrecks studied, the Titanic in 1912 and the Birkenhead, a British ship that went aground in the Indian Ocean in 1852. Markedly fewer women than men survived in 11 disasters, and there was no clear evidence of a difference in the remaining five studied. When researchers focused on British shipwrecks in particular, they found that women consistently fared worse than men, even though the order to save women and children first was given more often on British ships. 'This contrasts with the notion of British men being more gallant than men of other nationalities,' said the study authored by Mikael Elindera and Oscar Erixson of the Department of Economics, Uppsala University, Sweden. They also noted that similar conclusions have been reached in other studies of human behaviour during natural disasters. 'What happened on the Titanic seems to have spurred misconceptions about human behaviour in disasters,' the researchers concluded.

Some of the options included in their list and other options are: Sea Walking: Club Aqua Bali (For ages 9 to 12) Suitable for people who can't swim and with no previous diving experience, children (and their parents) can walk on the ocean's bottom viewing the sea life at depths of 3-5 meters using special breathing apparatuses.

Burst of culture: Devdan Show Bali (For ages 4 to 12) The Devdan show is definitely on the list of most do in Nusa Dua. A 90-minute show stage by a talented troupe of dancers using spectacular stagecrafts, including daring rope and wire effects, are just part of the fun that awaits at these evening performances. Clearly, Bali offers a large range of funfilled family options.

Men more likely to survive shipwrecks

The notion that women and children are rescued first during a shipwreck is a myth, scientists say, after analysing 18 maritime disasters that show men generally save themselves.
The sinking of the Titanic in which 70 per cent of the women and children on board were saved compared to 20 per cent of the men is a rare exception to the rule, said the study by Swedish researchers in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Instead, captain and crew tend to look out for their own safety first, men on board typically have twice the survival rate of women, and children fare the worst. The data on maritime disasters from 1852 to 2011 included 15,000 passengers and crew members of more than 30 different nationalities. The analysis did not include the Italian cruise ship, Costa Concordia, whose captain came under fire earlier this year for leaving the deadly scene of shipwreck before all 4200-plus passengers were evacuated. Thirty two people died.

passengers and crew to prioritise the needs of women and children, they tended to fare better. Otherwise, 'self-regarding players comply with norms only if the cost of the social stigma of violation exceeds the cost of compliance', said the study. In the case of the Titanic, the captain ordered women and children to be saved first and there were reports of officers shooting at any men who disobeyed the order. Women had a survival advantage over men in just two of

Offbeat Facts on London Olympics 2012
London Olympics 2012 has begun, as all the 205 countries gear up for the most prestigious sporting event. Here is a compilation of the offbeat facts that interests everyone about the Summer Olympics 2012.
* Hiroshi Hoketsu, Japan (equestrian) is the oldest athlete participating in this year's Olympics at a tender age of 70. * One of the mascots of London 2012 Olympics is called Wenlock, in recognition of the Much Wenlock Olympian Games. * The 27th July 2012 was the opening day of the London 2012 Olympic Games but exactly 100 years earlier it was the last day of the Stockholm Olympics in 1912. It is precisely 2 days earlier than it was the last time it was held in London in 1948. * London hosted the Olympic games in 1908 and 1948. * London becomes the first city to officially stage the event for the third time. Though Athens shares this honour, the fact being the 1902 Athens Intercalated Olympic Games is not considered as an official event, which gives London the honour of hosting the Games for the third time. * Great Britain only won 3 gold medals at the 1948 London Olympics and finished 12th in the medal tables. In total team GB won 23 medals. Subtract the Gold medals and put the numbers together and you get 2012. Amazingly, 3 nations won exactly twenty medals and the 6th and 7th won 20 and 12 consecutively. In 1948, the USA came first in the medal tables with 84 medals. Add 48 and 84 and you get 'London' 132, which can be written as London Won 20+12. * There are 205 nations to take part in 300 events at the Olympic Games in 2012. 147 nations will take part in the Paralympic Games. * After a tendering process with the clarity of mud and a 537m price tag, the Olympic Stadium is under pressure to impress when the athletes start in earnest. T h o u g h gloominess won't be a feature (hopefully), as the Stratford beast boasts 14 lighting towers at 70m high, supporting 532 lights.

Love the Irish..........
A painter by the name of Paddy Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to him in the town of Doolin, County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses. One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked Paddy if he would paint her in the nude. This being the first time anyone had made such a request, Paddy was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object; in fact, she was willing to pay up to $10,000. Not wanting to get into any marital strife, Paddy asked her to wait while he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife. In a few minutes he returned. "T'would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, missus," he said "The wife says it's okay. "I'll paint ya in da nude alright . but I has to at least leave me socks on so I has a place to wipe me brushes."....................

Sewell: Hawks don't fear Geelong

Experienced Hawthorn midfielder Brad Sewell says the Hawks won't carry any psychological scars into the finals even if they lose to Geelong for a ninth straight time on Friday night. T h e Hawks are the AFL's in-form side, on an eight-match winning streak a f t e r annihilating Essendon last Friday night. But they have lost all eight games they have played against the Cats since beating them in the 2008 grand final. That included a defeat in round two this season when Geelong came back from three goals down at the last change, a pattern typical of the sides' clashes in recent years. But Sewell said even if the Cats again burst the Hawks' form bubble at the MCG "Your actions will be on Friday night, it would count judged in accordance to that for nothing if they meet again in night or that game." September. Sewell said the Hawks felt their best was good enough t o b e a t anyone, but he expected the Cats would be feeling the same way.

the services of full-back Josh Hoffman, representative centre Justin Hodges and forward Corey Parker whose work around the ruck was sorely missed. Adding to the loss was a suspected hamstring injury to halfback Peter Wallace who limped off at the 65th minute mark. Parramatta full-back Jake Mullaney was very impressive along with centre Ryan Morgan, Sandow, Moimoi, Smith, Maitua and Justin Poore who scored his first try since May, 2009. The loss dropped Brisbane to fifth place on the table, behind North Queensland on percentages. Arthur walked into his first post-game press conference joking with Eels skipper Nathan Hindmarsh. But asked how he felt, he put on a serious face and replied: "It's one game. "After half time, the way we started (Brisbane scored two tries in five minutes) I was looking for the exit after 10 minutes." Broncos coach Anthony Griffin summed up his feelings saying: "We got what we deserved, tonight was an embarrassing effort." He didn't get an argument from captain Sam Thaiday who described Brisbane's performance as "terrible". "We've got to go back and hit the reset button, we were terrible out there tonight," he said. "We have to find a bit of character, get back to playing some tough football." "We're not playing like a finals side, we can't think about the finals."

Camera captures historic lunar flags

Forty years after astronauts landed on the moon for the last time, a lunar camera has revealed what happened to the flags they left behind.
N A S A ' s L u n a r Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera has captured images showing that all but one of the six American flags remains in place on their poles. The flags were left on the moon during the six lunar landings to symbolise the United States' scientific and engineering achievement. "The first was the monumental July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landing in which Neil Armstrong declared on live television, 'one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'," Apollo 17 took part in the final mission in 1972. "From the LROC images it is now certain t h a t t h e American flags are still standing and casting shadows at all of the sites, except Apollo 11," Mark Robinson, an investigator with the lunar satellite program, said. "Astronaut Buzz Aldrin reported that the flag was blown over by the exhaust from the ascent engine during lift-off of Apollo 11, and it looks like he was correct."

Dear Martha,
I think my boyfriend's using me. I met him six months ago and whenever he wants to see me he asks to come over - never to his house, always to mine. He never wants to go out; he only wants sex. When I say I'd like to go out, he gets moody, so we end up just having sex anyway. He calls at 2am asking to see me; actually, he never calls, he texts. Is he using me? Julie Dear Julie, For a start, this guy is certainly not your `boyfriend'; he is no kind of friend at all. Many women are suspicious of their men without any real cause, except their own lack of self-esteem, but in your case suspicion would be justified. I have a hunch he is someone else's boyfriend, and not a good one. He never takes you home because, I suspect, another woman lives there. He texts you because someone is near enough to hear him on the phone, especially at 2am. Ask him: is he or is he not your boyfriend? Either you'll get an explanation, or he will storm out of your life, and you lose a no-good bedbug. Is he `using' you? It sounds that way. But remember there's a `you' in `use': it takes two - user and used. Never let yourself be used dear. Martha.

Hundreds gather in US for rare white bison

US Lakota tribe members from South Dakota were a m o n g hundreds of people who gathered at a Connecticut f a r m t o celebrate the birth of one of the rarest animals in the world a white bison.
The miracle calf was officially named Yellow Medicine Dancing Boy at Saturday's elaborate ceremony at the Mohawk Bison farm in Goshen in the state's northwestern hills. It was born a month ago at the farm, which is owned by f o u r t h generation farmer Peter Fay. Many N a t i v e Americans consider white bison a symbol of hope and unity. Lakota tribe members say the birth of a white bison is a sign from a prophet who helped them endure strife and famine. Experts say a white bison is as rare as one in 10 million.

Arthur, who took over from head coach Stephen Kearney this week, delivered on a pregame promise to take the shackles off expensive halfback recruit Chris Sandow who took the first steps to convincing Parramatta fans he will be worth his high price tag. The little number seven grabbed two tries - the second racing 50 metres and standing up speedy Brisbane back Gerard Beale before diving across the try line. Parramatta piled on five converted tries in the opening 40 minutes against the defensively woeful Broncos to lead 30-6.

Hooker Andrew McCullough scampered across three minutes later for the home side to close to 30-18 in the 45th minutes. With a majority of the 22,626 crowd getting behind them, Brisbane raised hopes of monumental comeback before Sandow delivered a perfect pass for a charging Fuifui Moimoi to crash over in the 59th minute to take the pressure off. His try extended Parramatta's lead to 36-18 before impressive young Broncos winger Lachlan Maranta out-jumped his opposite Ken Sio to score in the 65th minute off a Ben Hunt bomb.

Murphy praises Blues mettle

Marc Murphy believes Carlton's late rally against Richmond shows the progress the Blues have made under coach Brett Ratten.
The Blues rallied from 13 points down late in the fourth quarter at the MCG on Saturday night to beat Richmond thanks to Brock McLean's fortuitous kick in the last minute. Murphy feels the spirit shown by the players when in adversity is testament to the belief and work ethic instilled by Ratten, who is expected to lose his position if the Blues fail to make the finals. "If it had happened a few years ago we'd have shut our mouths and not helped each other out, but we really rose a level and really willed the ball forward," Murphy told Grandstand's Sunday Inquisition. "We kept peppering the goals and eventually it went through for us." After a poor run of results, Carlton has won three from four, but Murphy says there has been no secret to their turnaround in form. "There's plenty of areas we were pretty poor for probably seven or eight weeks," Murphy said. "The focus has been on keeping things pretty simple. Basically tackles and contested

Manly produced an incredible comeback from 18 points down to beat the Warriors 24-22 in Perth on Saturday night.
The Warriors still looked to have the game in the bag when they led 22-6 after Manu Vatuvei's 45th-minute try. But two tries to Manly half-back Daly Cherry-Evans in the final eight minutes tied up the scores, before co-captain Jamie Lyon kicked the match-winning conversion. Lyon had missed three earlier conversions and the relief was evident to see when he finally found his range when it mattered most. But skipper Jason King's injury soured the night somewhat for Manly, who kept their top-four hopes alive with their 11th win of the season. King walked gingerly from the field in the 16th minute after coming off second best while making a tackle, and was sent to hospital for further assessment. The exact nature of the injury wasn't immediately clear. The Sea Eagles were woeful in the first 39 minutes, but a sensational try to winger Jorge Taufua on the stroke of halftime gave the reigning premiers hope of a revival. Taufua ran onto a pin-point cross-field kick from Kieran Foran and beat two lunging tackles in a 50m sprint to the line to finally get the Sea Eagles on the board. The first half produced a series of bruising tackles, with several players set to face nervous waits after delivering high tackles. Manly centre Steve Matai was one to deliver a high hit, while Warriors substitute Sione Lousi produced a crunching sling tackle. Vatuvei's 45th-minute try

New Zealand's sixth straight loss to Manly left the Wa r r i o r s ' f i n a l s h o p e s dangling by a thread, with last year's beaten grand finalists two points adrift of eighth spot. In an added blow, centre Konrad Hurrell was helped off the field after just 15 minutes with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury, although he later returned to the field. A crowd of 20,095 attended the match in another boost to Perth's bid to win their own NRL side. But it hardly felt like a home away from home for Manly, who had to contend with a pro-Warriors crowd despite the game being in Australia.

Red Bull hit back at critics in F1

Red Bull hit back at their critics after being dragged into another controversy over the legality of their cars following the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Team chief Christian Horner said the champions should be praised for taking an adventurous and creative approach to car design rather than slammed after accusations about their engine mapping and suspension setting devices. Horner said the fact that his outfit has faced no penalties this season shows they are playing straight. "At the end of the day, it is down to the FIA (International Motoring Federation) and the stewards to decide whether the car is legal or not. "Every single time our car has been questioned by other teams, it has always complied with the rules." Both Red Bull drivers were down in the placings in Sunday's race won by Briton Lewis Hamilton for McLaren, defending drivers world champion German Sebastian Vettel finishing fourth and Australian Mark Webber eighth. Spaniard Fernando Alonso marked his 31st birthday by finishing fifth for Ferrari and extending his lead in the drivers title race to 40 points ahead of Webber. In the constructors championship Red Bull lead with 246 ahead of McLaren on 193 and much improved Lotus on 192. Red Bull has consistently denied all suggestions of cheating, including the use of an illegal manual device to change suspension settings on the car, while parked in the official area after a race, to improve ride height and performance. But the team had to acknowledge that it is illegal to have such a device. According to close technical observers Red Bull has this year had to make changes to the floor design of their cars and wheel hubs as well as the engine mapping that, in a report by the FIA at the German Grand Prix, was alleged to be illegal. Horner added: "Of course the nature of F1 is that it is competitive, but the regulations are written in such a way that they are open to interpretation. From HRT to Red Bull, every single team interprets the rules, otherwise every single car would look the same. Part of our strength is our ingenuity and I don't think we should be criticised for being creative."

Dominant Hamilton wins in Hungary

Lewis Hamilton dominated the Hungarian Grand Prix overnight as he led from start to finish, holding off fierce challenges from both Lotus drivers to claim his second win of the season.
Lotus pair Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean were second and third after both failing to dislodge the McLaren driver, who gave his team its fifth win in the last six years at the twisty Hungaroring circuit. World championship leader Fernando Alonso was fifth, enough for the Spaniard to increase his lead at the top of the standings to 40 points over Australia's Mark Webber going into the one-month break. Double world champion Sebastian Vettel finished fourth for Red Bull, the German maintaining his record of never having won a race in July. Hamilton, fastest in both practice sessions on Friday as well as qualifying, started on pole and the Briton only briefly relinquished his lead for two pit stops. The 2008 world champion, who previously won in Canada in June, was threatened by Grosjean early in the race and had Raikkonen on his tail for the last few laps but fought off both the Frenchman and the Finn. "These races remind me of the old days and this is the kind of day when you have to have your mind at 100 per cent," said Hamilton, who also won at the same circuit in 2007 and 2009. "If we were on another track where overtaking was easier, the result might have been different," he added after a race held in hot, dry conditions as thunderstorms which had been predicted failed to materialise. "It is nice to go into the break knowing that we have had a win," he added. "It is a great feeling. It is very, very important how I manage the summer break. Frustrating outing Hamilton had only managed four points in three races since his win in Canada but the performance upgrades introduced by McLaren since then finally paid off following a frustrating outing in Hockenheim last week which ended in retirement. Ferrari driver Alonso, who has 164 points in the standings, moved 40 ahead of Webber, who was eighth in his Red Bull for the second race in a row. Vettel, third overall, closed the gap on Webber to two points and Hamilton leap-frogged Raikkonen into fourth place, although he remains 47 points behind Alonso. "This weekend shows it is all to play for still," Hamilton said. "If we can continue this kind of performance we can catch up. "We need consistency and we need to improve the car still in many areas and I am sure we will do that." Raikkonen started in sixth place but worked his way up through the field, leading for several laps before making his second tyre change of the race. The ice-cool Finn came out of the pits almost alongside Grosjean but fended off his team-mate to take second place. But, despite moving within one second of Hamilton, the 2007 champion never got close enough to pass. "We always try to win and sometimes you get close and it is a bit
