The Jakarta Post reports that the China Railway Corporation, who operate the national railway system for Mainland China, has expressed an interest in investing in a monorail system that would connect all nine regencies of Bali. Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika related: “China Railway came to me several months ago, requesting information related to the plan to build a monorail.” The governor warned that the study by the Chinese is still in the pre-feasibility phase to determine if the proposed rail system would be economically viable.

would be well received by the international community at a time when Bali is increasingly criticized for its environmental problems. Such a move will also keep Bali in good stead with its competitors in marine tourism, as many of them, such as the Maldives, Bahamas, Palau and Guam, have recently declared shark sanctuaries.” The creation of a sharks' sanctuary in Bali would follow the example set by the administration in Raja Ampat (Papua) that declared its 4 million hectares of marine waters off limits to shark harvesting. That same provincial ruling extends protection to manta rays, dugongs, whales, turtles, dolphins and ornamental fish species. Indonesia is the world's biggest shark exporter, supplying 15% of the world shark fin supply.

Bali Urged to Pass Laws to Save Sharks from Extinction in Island's Surrounding Waters
The Jakarta Post reports that Conservation International (CI) is u r g i n g t h e government of Bali to i m p l e m e n t regulations that would make Bali a sanctuary for sharks living in its surrounding waters. A marine survey performed in 2011 showed a dramatic depletion in shark populations, with only 3 sharks counted in 350 hours of survey diving. Ketut Putra, the CI country executive director also said evidence exists of a wholesale slaughter of pregnant thresher sharks in the waters between Padang Bai and Nusa Dua. Putra added: “The severe depletion of sharks in Bali's waters is an urgent marine conservation management issue due to the important role sharks play in keeping the ocean ecosystems healthy. We urge the Bali government to implement

From McDonalds, this should take 10 – 15 minutes. If you get lost ring Alan Wilson (Mob 08123809861) or Gede Ori (Mob 081239952212). Those teams staying at The Udayana Club will receive a free transport to and from the oval. It is suggested other teams use Blue Bird Taxis (their Headquarters are at the bottom of the hill near McDonalds) or small minibuses for transportation. For the Dinner, we will provide transport for the one km ride from the oval to our dinner venue for all visiting teams. The Transport Officer is Yussuf Wadu (Mob 082144888329). Toilets and Changing Room. There is a Gents changing room with its own toilet. There will also be a special toilet assigned for Ladies outside. Teams are most welcome to leave their gear in the Changing Room overnight to save bringing it backwards and forwards. The whole oval area is guarded at night. Starting Times. The program has been organised by Soni Hawoe (The Tournament Manager – Mob 081337226249) and your groupings and starting times on the Friday and Saturday will be sent in due course. If any teams are arriving late, please let us know. Emphasis has been placed on shortening times between games so that teams can a half day for other activities. If there are any problems re starting times, please contact Soni (Mob 081337226249). Scorers Box. The scorers are Sariani and Yuni and they need assistance from each team until they learn all the names and numbers. We request that one non playing member of each team playing assists the scorer during the early part of the Tournament. The scoring area should only be occupied by the scorer and these helpers. Umpiring. Umpiring is under the control of Brent Palfreyman (Cricket Tasmania) who is one of three Founder Members of the Bellerive oval in Hobart and has umpired at the highest level in Tasmania. All other umpires are Indonesians umpires for your games is attached with the schedule. Rules of Play have been circulated but are attached here for reference. Attention is drawn to a slight rephrasing of the Wide rule in that ALL balls deemed by the umpire as outside leg side of the batsman are WIDES if not struck by the batsman. The white lines drawn on the wicket only refer to balls outside off for right or left handed batsmen. Also in the event of a tie on runs or points (3 for each win), the Net Run Rate will be calculated for each team involved as Total runs hit divided by wickets given. Thus if a team has hit 300 runs but gave 6 of their wickets away the NRR is 50. Opening Ceremony is scheduled for the Saturday morning at 0930 and it would be greatly appreciated if all teams attended. We hope the Tournament will be opened by both The Rector of Udayana University and The Head of Cricket Bali, a member of The Royal Family of Ubud. The Balinese place great emphasis on welcoming visitors to their island home.

BALI THE RIGHT WAY
G'day again folks and lets pull the trigger on another week in paradise. This week sees our old mate Gede Bagus make it yet again further up the ladder in Indonesia's X-Factor talent competition. On a worldwide basis this is a great thing for Bali as to see a local lad win would be fantastic for the island as these people are really talented in so many different ways. You only have to look at the way they spend hours and hours scratching around with a fine piece of white stone and look at aliasj@kutaweekly.com the brilliant end product, resulting in some of the best statues I have ever seen. How many times have you seen a group of locals sitting around with a guitar singing together and trying to include the tourists into their fun. Let's face it what a great place to live. I hope Gede gets all the way to the top and takes the first place. Thanks to Crusoe's Bar and Restaurant on Legian street for their full on continued support in helping Gede get as far as he can. Well done to all concerned. The weekend just gone offered us the first round in the A.F.L season and why they split the first round in two is beyond me. The powers that be must know what they are doing and are trying to hold up the Pies from getting the top spot again this year. I guess time will tell and at the end of the day I'm hoping they do win. The opening round in Perth was a bit weird with the Eagles losing to the Dockers, but I'd say the Bombers getting up over the Crows was a bigger surprise, and I wouldn't imagine many tipped them at all. The jungle drums sounded out saying the Bombers had dropped 10 players from the squad, but, you know what to believe and what not to believe at the end of the day. This week sees yet another new sponsor to our pages being “Bali Ink” on Kartika Plaza Road in Tuban. These guys really have it going on, in their shop and if you're in the market for a high standard quality tattoo while here on holidays then this would have to be the place to go. The shop is fitted out like any of the best ones I've seen in Australia and the quality of the work is impressive. The place is Australian owned and operated and all tattoo work is overseen or done by a few of the best names in the game on the island. I hope all our loyal readers get in and check out “Bali Ink” and we thank them for jumping in and sponsoring the newspaper. Check out their advert on page 8 and thanks again Mr Froggy and Dede. Lastly this week I will yack on a tad about this damn leadership thing going on in Australia and must say it's a pain in the arse to have to listen to it every night when I turn on the television while living in Bali. I guess we all have to endure it for another six months at least, then they will have the election and the Gillard team will walk straight back into power. At the end of the day that's the way I see it and if you have a different opinion, I'd appreciate an email from you explaining why you think their team won't get back in? aliasj@kutaweekly.com At the end of the day I just don't understand why they are having such a long campaign. Anyways time will be the judge and I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and always try to remember, Before you ask someone why they don't like you, ask yourself why you care. Enjoy your week, ALIASJ………. PS: I hope you all have a great Easter and enjoy your holiday long weekend. Sarcasm and stupidity meet at the elevator. 4

BALI, LOCATION TO SUIT EVERYONE
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.

THE BUKIT
Much has been written about this dusty, arid and rugged area, which forms the southern most tip of the island. Limestone cliffs of up to 100 meters in height provide some of the best views in the world, along with some deserted white sandy beaches. Everyone wants a piece of this are, from international hotel chains such as Bvlgari, Versace and Banyan Tree, to established residential villa developers looking for that perfect plot. The area offers secluded beaches, and exclusivity to name but a few reasons why this is fast becoming the place to be. Prices have more than tripled in the area over last 2 years alone with still plenty of potential to be realized, so now is a plan. Only a short 15 minutes drive from the international airport, The Bukit is fast being referred to as the new “Millionaires Row”.

Fright at the Museum
Museum Bali Suffers Storm Damage as Newly Installed Roof Collapses
Less than one year after its renovation, the Bali Museum in downtown Denpasar has lost large sections of its roof due to high winds and rains that affected the building. Seputarbali.com reports that workers from the contractors who renovated the museum are now busily cleaning up debris from the fallen roof. Anak Agung Gede Geriya of the Provincial Culture Office said, “We cleaned up the area immediately after it occurred because the renovation work is still in the warranty period meaning that the contractor must be responsible for all damage." The damage to the museum's roof did not cause any rupiah that included the roof injuries to workers or of the Karangasem Pavilion visitors to the Museum. The Bali Museum was built damaged by weather last week. Geriya suspects that undersized ceiling ribs recently installed on the roof were insufficiently strong to support new roofing and insulation.

Declining Visitors
In 2010 a total of 38,565 visited the museum, 24,592 of which were domestic visitors and 13,973 foreigners. The following year, 2011, visitors declined to 35,055 comprised of 20,482 domestic tourists and 14,573 foreigners.

Aries – March 21 to April 20
Relationship dramas are likely as the Full Moon, Mars and Pluto stir up partnership problems. You're feeling fiery and feisty, but resist the temptation to start arguments and arouse opposition in others. With Venus visiting your sign, aim to be more cooperative. If you can morph from a rowdy Ram into a loveable Lamb, then you'll have a more enjoyable week.

Horoscopes
Libra – September 24 to October 23
The Full Moon lights up Libra, so get ready to sparkle and shine. Your diplomatic skills may also be called on, as a domestic drama escalates and you are called in as peace-maker. With Jupiter in your aspirations zone, it's time to dream big dreams. Be inspired by birthday great Gloria Steinem “Without leaps of imagination, or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities.”.

come in here and pick my brain and disappear,” she said. Australian Retailers Association executive director Russell Zimmerman says charging customers to browse will likely turn people away. He says a few stores in Queensland are charging to try on shoes or clothing but this is the first time he's heard of a browsing charge. Mr Zimmerman says to be competitive, smaller stores should emphasise what they offer that other stores don't and focus on providing great customer service. “If I walked into the store and was told I was going to be charged to browse my immediate reaction would be to leave,” he said. “ Yo u a r e m i s s i n g t h e opportunity for the browsing customer to actually buy from you.”

resorted to putting up the sign after spending hours each week giving advice to people who leave empty-handed. About 60 people a week would go into the store, ask questions and then buy the same or similar product at a supermarket chain or online. “I've had a gut full of working and not getting paid,” Georgina, who didn't want her surname published said, “I'm not here to dispense a charity service for Coles and Woolworths to make more money." She has become frustrated as her prices often match that of the supermarkets but people still go elsewhere as they are under the impression it will be cheaper.

Taurus – April 21 to May 21
For business-savvy Bulls … commercial ventures and financial matters are favored up until June 26, as Jupiter moves through your money zone. So strike while the iron is hot! But are you feeling uncertain about a close relationship? Possessive power trips and jealous hi-jinks will only lead to problems on Sunday, so strive to feel more secure and settled within.

Scorpio – October 24 to November 22
You won't feel like being particularly sociable, as Wednesday's Full Moon stimulates your moody and mysterious Scorpio nature … plus Pluto cranks up your controlling side on Sunday. Health issues could also come to a head, so make sure you are doing all you can to look after your mind, body and spirit with nutritious food, suitable exercise and regular relaxation.

Gemini – May 22 to June 21
Geminis can be easily distracted, as your mercurial mind jumps all over the place. This week, Saturn and Pluto help you power through projects and focus on important issues – so don't waste the chance to get things done. Are you still hanging out with the same old crowd? If you are bored with your current peer group, perhaps it's time to introduce some fresh new faces?

Sagittarius – November 23 to December 21
The Full Moon fires up your friendship, networking and entertainment zones so it's the perfect week to be a sociable Sagittarian. Friday's stars are fabulous for flights of fancy as you explore and experiment; go on a grand adventure; or fall in love at first sight! You're full of creative ideas on the weekend but don't rush and overlook important details along the way.

Cancer – June 22 to July 23
It's not a good week to bring up controversial or sensitive issues. Wednesday's Full Moon highlights your home zone, so be on domestic drama alert and realize that emotions will be running high [and self-control running low] and you're likely to blow things out of proportion. Take a chill pill Crabs and go with the flow! Singles … love and work are linked in unexpected ways.

Capricorn – December 22 to January 20
Have you been burning the midnight oil and neglecting your nearest and dearest? Wednesday's full moonbeams crank up your career zone … and also draw attention to domestic problems. Look for ways to make your home life happier and more harmonious. This may involve resolving issues with relatives; or re-organizing your living space so that it better suits your current needs.

Leo – July 24 to August 23
Lively Lions love Full Moon energy because it signals excitement and volatility. You'll feel fabulously creative this week but beware being bossy … especially with a nervous neighbor or a stressed-out sibling. Uranus stirs up your temperamental side on Friday. If you keep yourself busy with interesting projects, there'll be less inclination for you to be disruptive and demanding.

Aquarius – January 21 to February 19
Others are paying close attention to your work but don't put all your cards on the table just yet. Keep a few aces up your sleeve, so you can really wow them when the time is right. The sparks fly on Friday, as Uranus shakes up your relationship with a relative, a neighbor … or a surprise new love. Your creativity and communication skills also shine in unconventional ways.

The governor said he hoped the Chinese would decide to invest in a Bali monorail system as a means to connect all corners of the island and more evenly distribute the benefits of tourism

Virgo – August 24 to September 23
Versatile Virgos set extremely high standards … especially this week. Saturn and Pluto activate your perfectionist side, and you'll accomplish tasks with great diligence and dexterity as you analyze, organize, study and solve sticky problems. But resist the urge to criticize the performance of others. And use your powers of persuasion to get others onside on Saturday.

Pisces – February 20 to March 20
Prepare for a dramatic week, as the Full Moon brings up unresolved issues to do with lust or loot. An intimate relationship could soar – or crash. And, if you are careless with cash [or credit] then you'll pay the price further down the track. Friday's spontaneous stars encourage you to explore and create … plus change your mind every five minutes. Which suits a pliable Piscean just fine!

later accepted £700,000 out of court. Ms Summers and Nix were taken to court and Nix was jailed for five years for sexual abuse. Ms Summers was sacked and got a year's probation for false imprisonment. After the ordeal, Ms Summers said she begged Ms Ogborn for forgiveness and called off her engagement after viewing CCTV of what her partner had done. The hoax was the second of its kind in a month with managers at a Missouri drive-in abusing their staff after receiving a similar call from someone pretending to be a police officer. David Stewart was accused of being behind the calls but was acquitted in 2006 of impersonating a police officer, solicitation to commit sex abuse and unlawful imprisonment because of lack of evidence.

Film made over fast food strip search hoax
A McDonalds employee who was stripped naked by her boss after a telephone hoax has had her story turned into a film.
Mount Washington McDonalds staff member Louise Ogborn, 18, was subjected to a three-hour ordeal after her assistant manager received a call from a person pretending to be a police officer. The bizarre story has become the basis for the new movie Compliance, starring Dreama Walker. The caller told Donna Summers Ms Ogborn was a "thief" and ordered her to take her car keys and phone and lock her in the office until officers arrived. Ms Summers followed the caller's instructions believing the call was from a genuine police officer. A series of bizarre instructions including ordering her to strip naked, putting her clothes in a bag as evidence, ordering her to dancing naked with her hands over her head and forcing her to perform jumping jacks were subsequently followed. The abuse continued as when Ms Summers got her fiancé Walter Nix continue following the "officer's" instructions, forcing Ms Ogborn to sit on his lap, have her buttocks slapped and finally to perform a sex act on him. The abuse was witnessed by another manager and two employees who did nothing, believing the instructions were from a police officer. Dreama Walker plays the lead role in the film adaptation, Compliance. Ms Ogborn's ordeal ended when maintenance worker Thomas Simms refused to take over the abuse and demanded an area manager be contacted. Ms Ogborn sued McDonald's for £127million but

Punxsutawney Phil charged with fraud for early spring forecast
With a snow storm expected to batter the Plains, Midwest and East Coast this weekend, a springdeprived Ohio prosecutor is taking out his frustration with the long winter on a famous prognosticating groundhog. "I decided it was about time we indicted Punxsutawney Phil for fraud," said Mike Gmoser, prosecutor in Ohio's Butler County, in an interview. When he emerged from his burrow in Gobbler's Knob, Pennsylvania, Phil did not see his shadow, leading to a forecast of an early spring. Gmoser's mock indictment contends that the forecast was fraudulent. The rodent is being charged with a single mock felony count of "Misrepresentation of Early Spring," which Gmoser said should be punishable by death.

Raisin Bread
A bakery owner hires a young female shop assistant who likes to wear very short skirts and thong panties. One day a young man enters the store, glances at the shop assistant and at the loaves of bread behind the counter. Noticing her short skirt and the location of the raisin bread, he has a brilliant idea. "I'd like some raisin bread please," the man says. The shop assistant nods and climbs up a ladder to reach the raisin bread located on the very top shelf. The man standing almost directly beneath her is provided with an excellent view, just as he thought. When she descends the ladder, he decides that he had better get two loaves, as he is "having company for dinner." As the shop assistant retrieves the second loaf of bread, one of the other male customers notices what's going on and requests his own loaf of raisin bread. After many trips she is tired and irritated, and begins to wonder, "why the unusual interest in the raisin bread?" Atop the ladder one more time, she looks down and glares at the men standing below. Then, she notices a new customer, an elderly man standing amongst the crowd. Thinking that she can save herself a trip, she yells at the elderly man, "Is it raisin for you too? "Nno," stammers the old man, "but it's quivering a little."

Exquisite British Humour
The train was quite crowded, and a U.S. marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, but the only seat left was taken by a well dressed, middle-aged, French woman's poodle. The war-weary Marine asked, 'Ma'am, may I have that seat?' The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular 'Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat.' The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog. 'Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired...' She snorted, 'Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!' This time the Marine didn't say a word, he just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window and sat down. The woman shrieked, 'Someone must defend my honour! This American should be put in his place!' An English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, 'Sir, you Americans seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out the window'.

The academic setback for the prestigious New England school came a day after Harvard scored a rare athletic triumph winning its first ever game in the national college basketball championships. It follows an incident last year when dozens of students were forced to withdraw temporarily from the university after cheating on a final exam in the largest academic scandal to hit the nearly four-century-old school in recent memory. The National Academic Quiz Tournaments said they would vacate all of Harvard's wins at the Division I events in 2009 through 2011 and recognize other teams as national champions. It named the University of Minnesota as undergraduate champion in 2009; the University of Chicago as Division I champion in 2010; the University of Minnesota as Division I champion i n 2 0 11 , a n d V i r g i n i a Commonwealth University as undergraduate champion in 2011.

Harvard stripped of quiz tournament titles
Harvard University will be stripped of four n a t i o n a l q u i z championship titles after organizers found a competitor from the Ivy League school inappropriately accessed information about questions used in the tournament.
The National Academic Quiz Tournaments said that a security review found that Harvard competitor Andy Watkins accessed pages on its administrative Website just before the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Intercollegiate Championship Tournaments or "Quiz Bowls". " We c a n ' t h a v e t h a t happen," said Robert Hentzel, NAQT president. The quiz organizers said their review found that Watkins accessed Web pages that showed the first 40 characters of questions to be asked at the tournaments, though it said it had no direct or statistical evidence that Watkins and three others took advantage of their prior access in game situations. Hentzel, the group's president, said sometimes even the first 40 characters of a question can be telling. At the time of the review, Watkins was working for the quiz organizer as question writer for high-school level contests. The NAQT said Watkins has been terminated as a question writer. Wa t k i n s d e n i e d a n y wrongdoing. "My immaturity damaged my much-prized relationship with NAQT and cast undue doubt on three remarkable accomplishments by three Harvard teams," said Watkins, in a statement issued by the organization. "I regret my breaches of question security .... Though I know everyone will make their own judgments, I did compete in good faith." A Harvard spokesman declined to comment on the news.

Webber to compete in Chinese Grand Prix
Mark Webber is not considering his future in Formula One and will contest next month's Chinese Grand Prix, according to his father.
The Australian was embroiled in a fresh controversy involving Sebastian Vettel at the Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday, after the threetime world champion defied team orders and overtook his Red Bull team-mate to claim victory. Webber, who finished second, was leading

after a final round of pit stops in Kuala Lumpur, yet Vettel claimed he did not know he was under orders prior to ovetaking late in the race. Vettel apologised after the race to a furious Webber, who has returned to Australia prior to the Chinese Grand Prix in Shanghai to be held on April 14. Webber showed Vettel his disgust prior to the podium presentation, saying only "Multi-21, Seb Multi21" - a reference to Red Bull's race instructions. The order for Multi-21 given to both Webber and Vettel was part of Red Bull's strategy to stop the two vying against each other for first place after the final pit stop. Webber was reported to be contemplating missing the Chinese Grand Prix but his father Alan says his son will be on the starting grid. "We'll be up in China for the next one," he said. Alan Webber says he believes Vettel was "sincere" in his apology but the damage to the already fractured relationship is unlikely to be repaired. "I think it will take a while to earn the respect and trust again," he said. Alan Webber says it was not just his son who was upset with Vettel, highlighting that the Red Bull team had also expressed its displeasure with his actions. "Sebastian disobeyed team orders and most, if not all the team, are disappointed with him," he said. The Formula One community has also sided with Webber, with Vettel being largely condemned for his effort in Malaysia. "Up and down pit lane Mark has not lost any credibility at all," Alan Webber said. "It's probably Sebastian who has lost an awful lot." Alan Webber says Red Bull co-owner Dietrich Mateschitz confirmed his son's position on the team is "assured". Vettel leads the drivers' championship on 40 points, with Webber third on 26. Red Bull is on top of the constructors' standings as well with 66 points.

Dear Martha, You probably won't run this email but I think a lot of other men probably feel the same way. I have a girlfriend of five years and I love her (a lot) but I also cheat on her pretty regularly. I have probably been with other women 15 or so times in our relationship. At first I did feel guilty because my girlfriend and I had only been together about 12 months and I was really in love. But now I feel much less guilty. The only reason I feel bad is because people are always talking about how bad it is and I know my girlfriend would leave me if she found out. But the thing is I really enjoy these encounters and to be honest they make our relationship better. I always come back more relaxed and more loving. I realize I want to be with her because she is awesome but I don't just want to have sex with her. Yes the sex with her is good but it's also the same thing after five years and I couldn't go my whole life having sex with just one women. So I am going to keep doing it but I want to know why it's so wrong if I am careful not to be found out i.e. my girlfriend and soon to be wife won't get hurt. Matto Dear Matto, There is no greater arbiter of your life than you. So you're in the clear with your own conscience. You've decided there's nothing wrong with fooling around behind your girlfriend's back. And that's fine with you Clearly you've given your relationship with yourself (what you want, when you want it and how you shouldn't be denied it) a fair amount of thought. In relationship with yourself you've decided that if something feels good it's better to go ahead than suffer any sort of denial. So your relationship with yourself is pretty solid. Unfortunately you're not just in a relationship with

yourself dear. You're with another person whose feelings also need to be considered. Being in a relationship is about more than making each other feel good. It's about trust and reliance and intimacy. I'm sure many relationships continue when you replace thus things with deception and subterfuge but I'm not sure they will ever prosper. If you are in a relationship with someone you don't have to tell them everything. We are entitled to some personal space. We don't need to be an open book. But it's not a bad idea to make sure the things you are keeping quiet about are not things you know your partner would disapprove of completely. So this is the deal. You're ok with cheating but you know she's not ok. You know it would make her skin crawl if she knew what you were up to. And yet that doesn't stop you. And that doesn't sound really loving to me. Be a cheat if you want to. Go out and bed other women (hopefully always wearing condoms to protect your girlfriend from STDs). But don't fool yourself that you are doing ok by your girlfriend. She may never find out but even if she doesn't she's participating in a relationship that's not consensual. You know she'd back away if she found out so not telling her is the act of a coward as well as a cheat. The reason you can't clear your conscience is not because people keep saying cheating is bad, it's because you are hurting the person you love. Martha

Australian Crawl
.Australian Crawl (often called Aussie Crawl or The Crawl by fans) were an Australian rock band founded by James Reyne (lead vocals/piano), Brad Robinson (rhythm guitar), Paul Williams (bass guitar), Simon Binks (lead guitar) and David Reyne (drums) in 1978. David Reyne soon left and was replaced by Bill McDonough (drums, percussion). They were later joined by his brother Guy McDonough (vocals, rhythm guitar). The band was named after the front crawl swimming style also known as the Australian crawl. Australian Crawl were associated with surf music and sponsored a surfing competition in 1984. However, they also handled broader social issues such as shallow materialism, car accidents, and cautionary tales of romance. After their 1980 debut album, The Boys Light Up reached No. 4, Australian Crawl had two No. 1 albums; 1981's Sirocco and 1982's Sons of Beaches. Their early singles reached the top 25 but none broke into the Top Ten their best performing single was No. 1 hit "Reckless" which showed a more mature approach than earlier hits, and came from their 1983 Semantics EP. Upheaval within the band occurred from 1983 onwards. First Bill McDonough left, then his brother Guy McDonough died in 1984, then various other members left. Their 1985 release Between a Rock and a Hard Place was expensive but sales were disappointing and they disbanded early in 1986. The band's status as an icon on the Australian music scene was acknowledged by induction into the 1996 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame. Founding guitarist Brad Robinson was unable to attend the Hall of Fame induction in person, as he was hospitalized with lymphoma and died two weeks later. Once the band's escalating popularity brought them into Melbourne they caught the attention of Little River Band's guitarist David Briggs, who helped them gain a recording contract with EMI and he produced their first single. "Beautiful People" (1979) reached No. 22 on the National charts. Reyne had co-written the song with guitarist Mark Hudson in 1975. The track included references to the shallow materialism of residents of Toorak and to the Bombay Rock night club in Brunswick. Just days before recording "Beautiful People" Reyne had been hit by a car in Swanston Street, Melbourne, breaking bones in both wrists, an episode later chronicled in the track "Indisposed". Australian Crawl made one of the most memorable debuts on Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) TV series Countdown performing "Beautiful People" as Reyne still had both arms encased in plaster. "Beautiful People" remains one of their most popular songs according to listeners of Triple M in 2007. Australian Crawl's debut album The Boys Light Up (1980), also produced by Briggs for EMI, had a number of hit singles with songwriting shared around the group and beyond. Tracks from this album included the previously released single "Beautiful People", the title track (written by Reyne) "Indisposed" (Brad Robinson, James Robinson, Reyne, Bill McDonough) and "Downhearted" (Sean Higgins, Guy McDonough, Bill McDonough) (from The Flatheads). Brad Robinson's father
James Robinson was a Federal Arbitration Court Justice. "The Boys Light Up", their second single, was almost banned from radio play due to its explicit lyrics. Many listeners believed the chorus lyrics were about smoking marijuana but Reyne has stated that it was about smoking tobacco cigarettes at school. It also reached No. 22 on the National charts and remains almost as popular as "Beautiful People". Their third single "Downhearted" charted higher at #12 and was a cautionary tale of romance gone wrong. The Boys Light Up reached No. 4 on the Australian album charts and remained in the charts for an unbroken 101 weeks. It sold five times platinum: over 280,000 copies, and became one of the biggest Australian albums of the 1980s. Singer/guitarist/songwriter. Rock journalist and commentator, Glenn A. Baker compared Australian Crawl with various fellow Australian bands: Australian Crawl seemed to step out of a tourism poster... Spruce, lean, tanned and young... They swam, they surfed, they radiated a healthy, wholly Australian aura... If Skyhooks has personified the bodgie larrikin and Cold Chisel the hard drinking working class man, Australian Crawl turned the bronzed lifesaver into a pop idol... Crawl songs seemed to eulogize hedonism, adventure and the great outdoors for an audience that couldn't be bothered with Midnight Oil's politics.

Refs boss OK with obstruction calls
NRL referees chief Daniel Anderson has vowed not to change the obstruction ruling despite two controversial decisions to rub out tries in round three.
Melbourne's Cooper Cronk and St George Illawarra winger Brett Morris were denied after two attackers impeded defensive players off the ball in their games against Canterbury and Canberra respectively. The decisions were made by the video referees despite both incidents having no impact on the scoring of the try, leading to calls for flexibility in enforcing the ruling. But former Parramatta and Wa r r i o r s c o a c h A n d e r s o n defended the judgement and said any deviation from the ruling he made at the start of the season would only lead to more controversy. "I've got a dozen or so video referees and if I allow too much discretion I'll get 12 different, possibly polarising, decisions," Anderson said. "We'll have to take a little bit of pain now for decisions that are a little bit of a bitter pill for some coaches to swallow." Under-pressure Dragons mentor Steve Price was critical of the decision to rub out Morris's try, but Anderson said it was up to coaches to tell attackers not to run into players regardless of where the ball is. "The basic premise is that an attacking player that does not have the ball cannot run at a defender at the chest or outside shoulder and initiate contact," he said. "If you run in the hole at the inside shoulder, or you stop, then there will be no issues. "The reason I've made really tight rules on it is having been a coach I don't want inconsistencies, no coach does. "It may be a bitter pill now to swallow, but if a player avoids contact then there will be no issue. "Players know that and coaches know that and they are generally doing a good job. "We are talking about two or three incidents, but there have been 500 others that have been well executed." The performances of referees have been largely well received since Anderson's appointment. His move to force whistleblowers to make on-field rulings on tries before referring them to the video box has been viewed as a positive step. But Anderson said there is still a long way to go before his team will be fully satisfied with their progress. "I was always confident that we had strong decision makers and knew they had a strong instinct for the game," he said. "They love the game, they know the game and have been involved in it a long time before they come into the NRL. "We going solidly, that is fair assessment, but we have to do well across eight games every weekend."

Demetriou admits regret over sports scientists
AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou concedes the league should have acted much earlier on concerns about the growing influence of sports scientists at some clubs.

Speaking as the two giant pandas arrived in Toronto from China, Chinese Ambassador Zhang Junsai who gave the animals the VIP designation noted that when he started his posting in Canada two years ago, he was greeted only by the Canadian director of protocol. But the panda pair, Er Shun, 5, and Da Mao, 4, merited a personal welcome from Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who reached an agreement on the panda loan during a visit to China last year. "I am very delighted to officially welcome to Canada a pair of China's national treasures,"

Demetriou said that was one issue he was referring to at last week's season launch when he confessed to "some recent errors of judgment". "One specific example, definitely ... (was) talking about the influence sports scientists were having at football clubs," he reportedly said. "We should have intervened a lot earlier. "When I came out and talked about that, there was outrage from some quarters about sports scientists (having) a place. "They may well have a place and there are some very fine ones. "But there were certain things going on, certain practices, particularly with marginalising our club doctors, which was unacceptable."

"Phys-edders don't overrule doctors," was OPEN FROM 10am ‘TILL 6pm Demetriou's blunt warning at the time. Sports science is now a massive issue not only in the AFL, but Australian sport in general.

The league suspended Dean Bailey and Chris Connolly, as well as hitting the Demons with a $500,000 fine, but cleared the club of tanking. "I can give you lots and lots of cases where there's insufficient evidence and insufficient proof, people do get frustrated by the outcome," Demetriou said. "All I will say to you is based on the evidence that could be sustained ... that was all that could be supported. "I tell you what, if you don't have evidence, then you don't go down that track and pinging guilt on people. “You know where you'll end up? You'll end up in the High Court or somewhere else."

Eagles counting cost of Derby loss
Things went from bad to worse for West Coast after Saturday's Derby loss to Fremantle with confirmation that forward Mark LeCras will be out for a month after undergoing arm surgery.
LeCras, who missed all of last season with a knee injury, suffered the injury after copping a heavy but fair bump from Tendai Mzungu. The key forward had a plate inserted in his arm and the club said in a statement that he will be sidelined for up to a month. Meanwhile Eagles defender Eric Mackenzie, who suffered a hamstring strain in Saturday's 28point loss to the Dockers, will likely miss two weeks. But the news from the West Coast camp is not all bad with star ruckman Nic Naitanui (groin) and midfielder Daniel Kerr (knee) both having stepped up their training loads in recent weeks. The same can be said for the Eagles' Collingwood recruit Sharrod Wellingham, who has shed the moon boot protecting his injured ankle and increased his training intensity as well.

AFL eyes return to Melbourne suburbs
The AFL is open to restoring one of Melbourne's disused suburban stadiums to help poorer clubs make money from low-drawing games.
Chief executive Andrew Demetriou says Carlton's training base Princes Park and Richmond's Punt Road Oval are both options. The AFL and all clubs met last week met to discuss ways to counter a growing gap between the AFL's rich and poor clubs. The inability of the smaller Melbourne-based clubs such as the Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne to compete financially is exacerbated by poor deals at Docklands. There have been calls for the AFL to help by buying that venue early, rather than wait until 2025 when it is due to take ownership under its current contract. But with the AFL unwilling to meet the current asking price, Demetriou says there is a realistic prospect of refurbishing a third Melbourne venue. "There is. Particularly when you consider that our commitment to the number of games at (Docklands) goes down in 2014," Demetriou said. "We have got a number of games that would be attractive in an 18-20,000 seat venue, games we know we're not going to get more than that. "But if you've got a full house in a ground you can get a great atmosphere." Three of the Kangaroos' home games at Docklands last season drew fewer than 20,000 spectators, while the Bulldogs had two such matches, all of which would have cost the clubs money. The league has conducted a feasibility study on Princes Park and found it to be a viable option. It is the most recently-used suburban stadium for AFL home and away games, the last of those in 2005, and is still used for preseason matches. The Kangaroos, who already play two home games in Hobart, have also pushed to play some in Ballarat. But while the AFL is open to that idea, the current Victorian Government's unwillingness to help fund a stadium upgrade is a sticking point. Meanwhile, Demetriou said the AFL was giving up promotional ground in New South Wales and Queensland by starting its season a fortnight later than the NRL. "I don't think it's helpful in what we're trying to do with the Sydney Swans, GWS, Gold Coast and Brisbane," he said. "We need to think more laterally about how we can do that better."
