The Badung Regency Transportation, Communication and Information Agency (Dishubkominfo) has plans in 2014 to install Area Traffic Control Systems (ATCS) on a number of traffic lights operating at South Bali's busiest intersections. The automated control systems that change traffic light intervals depending on actual traffic flows are predicted to help reduce or eliminate congested conditions in a number of areas in Bali. The Badung Dishubkominfo has allocated Rp. 4.4 billion (US$367,000) to purchase ATCS in areas surround Kuta. The installation of an undisclosed number of ATCSs in South Bali will take place in phases.

As a preliminary step to the ATCS installation, a fiber optic network is also being installed that will allow the system to interconnect and exchange traffic information.

What's more, Sudibya said he also encountered a traffic jam of several hours' duration when he tried to leave the airport. When a spokesman of PT Angkasa Pura I, the managers of the Airport, was asked to comment, he said: “Yes . . . it's an ongoing project and there's sure to be inconveniences, but we are doing our best to overcome them.” The spokesman, Alfasyah, denied that there was a lack of adequate signage at baggage conveyers.

G'day again readers and welcome to the first edition of the paper for 2014. Kuta had a huge New Year's Eve with probably the most amount of fireworks I have ever seen in my life being set-off on the night. I was lucky enough to have been on the roof at Kuta Townhouses for the most of the night and watched as the powers that be, let over 1200 shots skyward at the turn of midnight, and it was spectacular. The show lasted for almost 30 minutes and was without doubt the biggest sky show in Kuta this year. The shear amount of crackers that were shooting all around town was amazing and only made the spectacle that much better. I couldn't think of a better place to be to celebrate and bring in the New Year.I'm told that next year the Town Houses are going to make the show that much bigger again so I'd say get in now and sort your bookings. Moving along this week I did get a chance to head to the beach with a few mates and kick the footy around for a while. We were lucky and jagged a good patch of weather on this Sunday especially for this time of year. So there we are kicking the footy, having a few beers and basically watching the world pass-by. The beach was fairly busy as the weather was rather good and the speed boats seemed to be zipping around dragging all sorts of water banana boats and weird strange flying fox rides along with the parasailing etcetc, but, the biggest amount of traffic on the water was the jet skis which seemed to have multiplied since I had a thrash on one almost 10 years ago. So there we sit, exhausted and out of breathe from footy (We did at least 5 minutes footy) sinking a few green bottles and right in front of us two jet skis collide, BANG. At first no-one could believe what they had seen and then the rescue boats started ripping in along with all available jet skis. People start screaming and running towards the water and at the end of the day I must say that within a minute the team seemed to have the people out of the water and on the front of a boat and heading to shore at a rate of knots. They have managed to get the riders to the sand and along comes a life guard to help with the unconscious girl who took the worst of the smash. The guard has decided hospital was the best option as there seemed to be some serious damage she has taken. At the end of the day we caught up with the family over the next few days and found out that she had broken her jaw, smashed up teeth, one lung collapsed and copped a heap of bruises and abrasions and had to be medivaced home to Perth. The other rider has a smashed eye socket along with tonnes of bruises and cuts and is going to have her cheek reconstructed when she gets home. So at the end of the day a family holiday was turned to mud in an instant and after meeting them and getting the run down on how it unfolded I couldn't help but ask if there was any insurance in place to which the answer was yes. Can you imagine how much the episode would have cost if you had to front the money up yourself?? I hate to think and at the end of the day, if you don't cover yourself to a small extent you are playing with fire. Anyways all's well that ends well and the family will spend many happy Christmas's and New Year's together. Ok folks that's about my lot for today and I hope you all have a very prosperous New Year. I hope the most of you stay safe, happy, healthy and try your best to remember, A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. Enjoy Your Week, ALIASJ….

As a foreigner, there is a number of ways that can lead to you owning your dream property in Bali.
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. Indonesia, or a foreign legal entity with a representative office in Indonesia such as foreign Banks, embassies, etc.

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.

This is the right of use over state-owned (crown land) or property owned by public or private persons/entities for a specific purpose for (generally) a finite period and occasionally for an indefinite period. This land right may not be sold, exchanged or transferred unless explicitly state in an agreement. Hak pakai may be held by and Indonesian individual or entity. Or foreigner permanently domiciled in

A Voluntary Tax?
the governor explained. termed a donation that Governor Planning to Repitch The governor admitted that US$10 Heritage Tax as a would be voluntary and the most tourists have insurance, but amount requested (for donation) 'Donation' Bali Governor Made Mangku Pastika says his plans to introduce a US$10 heritage tax on every foreign visitor starting in 2014 is being delayed by legal complications. Governor Pastika quoted by the State News Agency Antara said, “There's a legal problem there, so the (the heritage tax) cannot be put into effect.” The governor's comments were made at the end of the December monthly town hall m e e t i n g h e l d o n S a t u r d a y, December 28, 2013. Pastika said a legal conflict exists, as the current framework of the law does not allow the province to impose additional taxes. “A tax is not allowed. But if it is is not stipulated,” explained Pastika. Because of the limitations on new taxes, the governor's office is undertaking corrections in the proposed “heritage contribution” so it does not create legal complications. The intention of the governor is to use the amount donated to protect cultural objects and also provide insurance coverage for tourist visitors who fall sick, have an accident or die while on a Bali holiday. “This means that not all the money collected will go to the government, while another portion goes to people who have accidents, are sick or die. When tourists dies we now have that coverage sometimes does not extend beyond the borders of their home country. When illness and accidents take place the money collected from the proposed donations would be use to assist international visitors. Governor Pastika defended his idea of a heritage donation, saying such schemes are already in operation in other countries. The governor said it was not possible to secure a portion of the US$25 visa-on-arrival fee charged most foreign visitors because that would require a change in the current law.

A particularly voluptuous waitress wearing a very short skirt and legs came to his table and asked if he was ready to order, "What would you like, sir?" He looks at the menu and then scans her beautiful frame top to bottom, then answers, "A quickie." The waitress turns and walks away in disgust. After she regains her composure she returns and asks again,"What would you like, sir?" Again the man thoroughly checks her out and again answers, "a quickie, please."

Sobocinska is the rapid loss of agricultural land to tourism development, estimated to be disappearing in Bali at the annual rate of 1,000 hectare. Also under severe strain is Bali's electrical grid where an estimated 50,000 Balinese households sit in absolute darkness watching, from the distance, the after glow of luxury villas and hotels. Is Tourism the New Form of Colonialism? On a more basic and perhaps crucial level, the Author raises question of cultural degradation, questioning how her fellow Australians and others have turned certain parts of Bali into a sordid and tawdry domestic destination.

Hirschfeld, an only child with no children of his own, does not yet know who will inherit his tattoo, but he knows he wants it saved. "People have stuffed animals in their house, so why not skin?" he said. "If you look in certain old tattoo shops, there is always a jar with special water and a piece of skin in it and it does look terrible. This way it looks much better, so if I can be preserved like this, yes please!" Hirschfeld's tattoos cover his body from the neck down. "Some people are so important to me I always want to carry them with me and this way I can," said Hirschfeld, whose mother died of cancer. Van der Helm said he was mainly inspired by the idea of preserving the best works by skilful tattoo artists. “Vincent van Gogh was a poor man when he died. You and me can't buy a Van Gogh," he said. "Tattooing is the people's form of art."

Bali: Australian Domestic Tourist Destination?
Worth Sharing: Who Invited You to Bali?
The Guardian, in an article first published by The Conversation – part of the Guardian Comment Network, featured a thought provoking composition written by academic Angleszka Sobocinska asking “Who invited you to Bali?” Sobocinska is deputy director of the National Centre for Australian Studies. Her academic background is in history, specializing in the cultural history of AustralianAsian relations, the history of travel and tourism and development. Who invited you to Bali?” questions basic premises of the international tourism industry and explores the cultural degradation mass tourism brings to a destination. Taking Bali as a specific case-in-point, Australians constitute 25% of all foreign arrivals to Bali where, she suggests, tolerance and resiliency may be coming to an end as cross-cultural, environmental and social tensions are on the rise. She also looks at growing demands on limited natural resources, such as water, on an increasingly thirsty Island where 65% of Bali's water is consumed by tourism. As a result, rivers and rice fields are drying up and salt water intrudes into a rapidly diminishing water table. Meanwhile, developers eye how to turn a profit from the Island's mountainous lakes – Bali's last vestiges of fresh water. Also examined by

"Everybody with tattoos has that idea. It's not a new idea, we just found a way to actually do it." Hirschfeld and about 30 other clients of the "Walls and Skin" tattoo parlor, which is tucked away in a canal house in the Dutch capital, have donated their skin to

formaldehyde, ideally within 48 hours. It will then be sent to a laboratory outside the Netherlands, where a 12-week procedure extracts water and replaces it with silicone, leaving a rubbery substance.

Dining in Bali pose endless possibilities as Indonesia has one of the world's greatest cuisine. From a five-star restaurant to a roadside stall, you will be amazed by the choices offered. Tourist-oriented restaurants abound in tourist centers but Indonesian and Chinese food is predominant. Influences from all corners of the globe make up Balinese comestibles. Curries, cucumber, eggplant, Indian mustard and cow peas came from India; the Chinese brought the wok and stirfrying, Chinese mustard, and vegetables such as brassica and Chinese cabbage; from Arabia came kebabs and mouthwatering goat stews, while the Europeans introduced avocados, peanuts, pineapples, guavas, papayas, tomatoes, squashes, pumpkins, cocoa, soybean and cauliflower. Balinese cooking revolves around spices, often partnered by coconut milk, which adds a rich flavor and creamy texture to intriguing dishes of tropical vegetables, poultry, meat and fish. Sugar, fragrant roots and leaves are fondly used and the end result is food that is both subtle and sophisticated. Rice is the basis of any Indonesian meal. A main serving of rice is normally taken first, followed by a small portion of three to four dishes of vegetables or meat, known as lauk. These dishes of lauk are placed in the center of the table for all to share. A side dish or sambal, made with red-hot chilies ground with dried shrimp paste and other seasonings such as lime juice should be taken with caution. It can be scorching for the inexperienced or chili intolerant person, so do not be too adventurous with your sampling. If indeed you are scorched, do not drink water immediately as it will only worsen the situation; instead settle for bananas, plain boiled rice, bread or cucumber. However, delicious side dishes like tempeh, a protein-charged savory cake made of fermented soybeans, and rempeyek, small crisp cookies made of peanuts, should not be missed. Five Legs For simple dining, there are warungs - snack bars and mobile carts that cater mainly to local workers and those who understand that low cost hawker meals are really safe to eat. These three-wheeled carts are often pushed by young boys and are nicknamed kaki lima, which means five legs - the three wheels of the cart and the two legs of the boy! Adventurous travelers can delight in sampling all these delicacies that can be found within reach. Those who are unsure but are willing to try should go for something simple such as pisang goreng or banana fritters, lumpia, a type of fried spring roll, and bakso, a meatball soup. Lawar, a specialty of Bali, is composed of minced pork, coconut and spices. Other types of lawar that are available include chicken, egg, green bean, and jackfruit. Do take note though, if it is red in color, it is made of fresh raw blood. You should also try a snack called tupat, which is normally not found elsewhere. It is actually steamed rice in coconut-leaf packages that are cubed with tofu, cucumber, spinach and sprouts and mixed with a fiery peanut sauce. Do not miss bubur injin or black rice pudding for breakfast or dessert, it is heavenly! Do ask locals for a price estimation but expect to pay around Rp. 2,000 to Rp. 5,000. Tropical Fruits Bali has a extensive range of fruits, some unimaginable and some you wish you had never imagined! One of these is the fabled durian, the King of Fruits, which is a thorny fruit the size of a football. It has an offensive smell to some but are prized by locals. Others that can be savored include mangoes, mangosteens, bananas, jackfruit, rambutans, markisas, pineapples, papayas, longans, melons, oranges, and custard apples, to name a few. Of course, the best fruit would be the salak or the snakeskin fruit. This scaly, brown fruit encloses a crunchy white fruit with a pear-like flavor; Bali is famous for its salak.

Melbourne Renegades clinch their first win of the BBL season with a thumping of Brisbane Heat
AN impromptu Major League Baseball tryout from Ben Rohrer revived the Melbourne Renegades' season at Etihad Stadium on Monday night.
It was going to take something special to upstage the earlier batting heroics of Aaron Finch (81 off 51 balls) and Jos Buttler (61 off 36) as the home team batted first and posted an equal Big Bash League record 3-210. But Rohrer, who played an equally dazzling innings in the club's first home game last season, obliterated 36 runs off just 11 balls to set up a dominant 57-run victory over the strangely lacklustre Brisbane Heat. The win couldn't avenge the Gades' semi-final loss to the same opponent last season, but was critical after the team lost its opening two matches of BBL03. Rohrer took singles off his first two balls in the 18th over, providing no hint of the fireworks ahead for the Renegades' non-derby record crowd of 19,832. He took a hip-high fulltoss off Alister McDermott over the square-leg fence for six on his third ball, then took an even higher delivery into the second deck in the same direction. McDermott was replaced because of the "intimidatory bowling" rule, but the only people in danger were those in the cheap seats. Amazingly, replacement Ben Cutting then served up three more full-tosses in a row, two of which went for doubles and the final one another "home run". A boundary midway through the final over was the precursor to another full-toss six on the second last delivery to smash the ground record score and doubtless whet the appetite of any baseball scouts on hand. I n r e p l y, t h e H e a t stumbled out of the blocks and never got going, eventually all out for 153 two balls into the 20th over. James Pattinson (3-36) impressed early and looked fluent in his return from stress fractures of his back, but was clobbered in a late Ben Cutting onslaught. T h e A u s t r a l i a n Te s t paceman edged into the low 140km/h range, bowled some nice out-swingers and took the key wicket of English opener Craig Kieswetter. But Cutting twice smashed him into the city side crowd as two of his five sixes in a 19-ball, 40-run cameo that gave the Heat's score some respectability. Renegades' Test call-up Alex Doolan earlier made a runa-ball 13 before a soft dismissal playing a half-baked hook shot. But he had a strange reprieve on just one when he was run out but remained because nobody appealed. T h e Tasmanian looked well home after a comfortable single, but his bat dug in short of the crease and his feet were in the air when the return hit the stumps with his score on one.

UFC fighter Anderson Silva breaks leg in UFC 168 Las Vegas clash with Chris Wiedman
THE UFC has ended 2013 with a shocking finish after Anderson Silva's leg snapped in an injury that has been described as one of the most horrific in an already brutal sport.
Silva's injury in the main event at UFC 168 cast a pall over arguably the UFC's biggest fight card of the year, reminding every fan of the rapidly growing sport of the brutality frequently at its core. T h e Brazilian's leg snapped when he attempted a low leg kick on middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Although the injury happened too quickly to be seen by most naked eyes at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas, thousands of fans cringed audibly when the replay was shown once on the arena's big screens. Weidman quietly celebrated his victory while doctors tended to the injured Brazilian, whose left shin was bent grotesquely after the failed kick. As Silva was stretchered from the Octagon with a brace on his leg Weidman paid tribute to the exchampion, calling him the greatest fighter in the sport's history. The 38-year-old Silva was rushed to a local hospital for emergency surgery. A statement from the UFC released today said an orthopedic surgeon went to work on Silva last night and successfully stabilised his leg. "Following Sunday's UFC 168 main event, former champion Anderson Silva was taken to a local Las Vegas hospital where he underwent surgery to repair a broken left leg," the statement sai. "The division ended nearly six months ago when Weidman stopped the champion with a left hook at UFC 162. Thousands of Brazilian fans - including retired soccer star Ronaldo - chanted, sang and waved flags for Silva and several B r a z i l i a n undercard fighters, creating a semblance of the huge homecage advantage enjoyed by their fighters back home. In the comain event Ronda Rousey retained her bantamweight t i t l e b y submitting longtime rival Miesha Tate with a third-round arm bar. Rousey was booed while talking to UFC commentator Joe Rogan because she walked away from Tate's offer of a postfight handshake. Before the unsettling main event, Rousey (8-0) got the biggest test of her ascendant career. Rousey had never seen the second round of a mixed martial arts fight after seven straight firstround wins, but Tate tested the champion with striking and tenacity. Although Rousey repeatedly tossed Tate (13-5) to the canvas and pounded on her, Rousey couldn't finish until getting a weary opponent into her patented arm bar - the submission move she has used to end each of her eight professional fights.

Makeover Miracles
Aries Mar 21 - Apr 20 Step back. Stand aside. Let a process pass in its own way. You could end up doing yourself no favors this week by choosing to block or hinder a development that fully intends to manifest on its own in its own time. That's not to say you won't be affected by the seemingly negative process that intends to bring its share of tension or confrontation but there is much you can do to minimize both by simply detaching yourself in some way. As keen as you might be to involve yourself or give a certain person a piece of your mind, smile and relax. Taurus Apr 21 - May 21 This week, someone appears to be dangling or waving the equivalent of a red rag that will serve only to bring out your bullish tendencies. If someone truly knew you, then they probably wouldn't be so quick to try and persuade you to do something you clearly don't want to do. The question you're likely to be asking yourself surrounds how 'whatever it is' they're trying to persuade you of is being done for purely selfish reasons. Normally, I'd advise you to avoid the tendency to succumb to such overly strong persuasion. On this occasion, you don't need such advice. Gemini May 22 - Jun 22 How willing are you to improvise? How aware are you of resources you do have available that you feel or fear might be lacking or absent? Such are questions the cosmos is posing to you now and, during the coming week, you're likely to find yourself able to achieve much more than you believe simply by applying imagination to a situation where you don't believe you have enough material supply or sway within. Don't let a perceived lack of something stop you from trying. You can make something special happen if you're willing to seize an alternative option. Cancer Jun 23 - Jul 23 We're taught from a young age to ignore sarcastic or hurtful comments from others. That's much easier said than done when we're younger and it doesn't get any easier when we're older, either! We can't help believing sometimes that there is truth within a hurtful comment or barbed criticism and during the coming week, you could find yourself having reached the end of your tether with a certain person who manages successfully to goad or cajole you. There is no need to make a tense or potentially confrontational worse. Try to let someone's words bounce off of you. Leo Jun 24 - Aug 23 We know how instrumental we can be where making complex or already tense situations even more complex or tense is concerned. This is usually achieved by us trying to control a situation that refuses to be controlled and the coming week is likely to see you trying to do precisely that. Change, in some way, is being enforced. The cosmos is pulling no punches where altering a situation you've grown used to or comfortable with is concerned. Something is ending. Something is changing beyond recognition. There is good to be seen within this. You'll see it, soon enough. Virgo Aug 24 - Sep 23 We're still very much in the season of goodwill. The period where we focus on giving and supporting others isn't finished and neither should it ever finish. Yet, there are times when we find ourselves having to focus more intently on supporting others than we do at other times and the sky speaks clearly of support needed between you and a certain person. One or both of you need to assess an out-of-the-blue situation and decide a clear way forward. Plans might need to be reassessed or even postponed but together, you and someone else can work a minor miracle.

Libra Sep 24 - Oct 23 Retaliating is easy to do sometimes. All someone else needs to do is say or do something that pushes a certain button within us that causes us to react angrily or defensively. When we react in such a way, we tend to ignore how we are escalating or prolonging a tense situation but, through being blinded by the need to respond, we forget this. This week, you really do have a choice about how instrumental you can or ought to be in escalating tension, possibly within home or family circles. Someone needs your support now, not your disapproval. Scorpio Oct 24 - Nov 22 We hear people talk about how often 'we hurt the ones we love'. Why is that? Surely, if our love for those closest to us is real and deep, then they're the last people we should ever consider hurting? Yet, we know it happens. This week presents you with tense scenario that could cause you to respond in a way that might feel appropriate at the time but could also have long-lasting implications where someone close is concerned. A relationship with a certain person is altering but it needn't be a difficult process as long as you're willing to be supportive and sensitive. Sagittarius Nov 23 - Dec 21 At this time of year, many people find comfort in a variety of ways. Much comes from what has been spent in shops or put on credit cards. Others indulge in ways they tend not to during the rest of the year. How people choose to bring comfort to their world is their own business but, this week, you have an interesting choice about how comfort can be brought to you. This needn't involve money or overindulgence. It involves willingness on your part to deepen a bond with a certain person. The cosmos is trying to bring closeness where you need it. Be willing to Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 20 We're told that we shouldn't put off until tomorrow what we can do today. That's helpful advice, generally. There are though, some things that we're wise to postpone or delay and one of these surrounds rising to confrontation. Another surrounds making decisions about something that deserves more thinking time. The cosmic climate is tense for everyone at this time and everyone has their own story to tell about how they're having to smile and count to ten in some way. This week, make use of your ability to be practical and patient. Be big, brave and Aquarius Jan 21 - Feb 19 What is it people say about being able to choose friends and not family? During the coming week, you could find yourself wishing you were able to be more selective where certain family members are concerned, particularly where input or opinions you haven't asked for are concerned. At this time of year, despite many people experiencing domestic joy, it doesn't take much in some ways for family related tensions to run high. Don't rise to bait being set by a particular family member. Avoid any tendency to speak your mind. Tension will die down soon enough. Pisces Feb 20 - Mar 20 We don't have to work or look hard to receive others' opinions. When certain situations arise, we expect them. Some people cannot resist giving their input and often fail to see how, apart from the fact it wasn't asked for, they end up making already complex situations more complicated. This week, you could find yourself in the middle of a potentially tense situation made more so by someone's insistence with involving themselves in ways far from helpful. The more you can keep a personal matter private, the more likely it is you'll keep a situation manageable or tolerable.

successful surgery, performed by Dr. Steven Sanders, the UFC's orthopedic surgeon, inserted an intramedullary rod into Anderson's left tibia. "The broken fibula was stabilised and does not require a separate surgery. Anderson will remain in the hospital." Recovery for such injuries can take between three and six months but there is no guarantee Silva will ever step into the cage again. Weidman, who earned his belt with an upset victory over the long-reigning champion in July, dominated the first round of the rematch. "I did work on checking kicks,'' the New Yorker said.

Sydney New Year's Eve hotel stays record $200 jump, Gold Coast hotels high, Hobart New Year's Eve suddenly popular
SYDNEY is the third most expensive world city to spend New Year's Eve, with London and Paris more affordable options to ring in 2014.
And it's dearer to spend the night on the Gold Coast than in Tokyo or Rome. But maybe the biggest surprise is Hobart's sudden popularity as the place to be this New Year's Eve recording startling price increases for the night to become more costly than Melbourne, Brisbane or Adelaide. Visitors to the Harbour City are shelling out an average of almost $600 a night to see in 2014 $200 more than last New Year's Eve - and up 164 per cent on average prices for the month of December. Gold Coast sits behind London ($543) and Paris ($434) on the list. A hotel stay in the Ta s s i e c a p i t a l o n December 31 averages $248 a night - up from $202 last year and 35 per cent more than the average December price. But in other parts of Australia, the cost of New Year's accommodation has dropped this year, with Melbourne down 8 per cent from last year to $230, Brisbane down 17 per cent to $189 and Adelaide down 18 per cent to $158. The trivago hotel price index shows the average overnight accommodation prices for the most popular cities worldwide on trivago.

The following is a myth busting info page covering different songs or bands each week chosen by one of our many loyal readers, Please Enjoy…Jesse J “Price Tag”

"He Ain't Heavy... He's My Brother" is a popular music ballad written by Bobby Scott and Bob Russell. Originally recorded by Kelly Gordon in 1969, the song became a worldwide hit for The Hollies later that year and again for Neil Diamond in 1970. It has been covered by many artists in subsequent years. The Hollies version of the song has also been featured in the film Zoolander. Scott and Russell had been introduced to each other by Johnny Mercer, at a California nightclub. Although Russell was dying of lymphoma and the pair met in person only three times, they managed to collaborate on the song. The publishing rights to the song were the subject of a legal battle following Russell's death. In 1884, James Wells, Moderator of the United Free Church of Scotland, in his book "The Parables of Jesus" tells the story of a little girl carrying a big baby boy. Seeing her struggling, someone asked if she wasn't tired. With surprise she replied, “No, he's not heavy; he's my brother.” In an 1918 publication by Ralph Waldo Trine titled "The Higher Powers of Mind and Spirit", he relates the following anecdote: "Do you know that incident in connection with the little Scottish girl? She was trudging along, carrying as best she could a boy younger, but it seemed almost as big as she herself, when one remarked to her how heavy he must be for her to carry, when instantly came the reply: 'He's na heavy. He's mi brither.'" The first editor of Kiwanis magazine, Roe Fulkerson, published a column in September 1924 carrying the title "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", the first use of the phrase exactly as it is rendered in the song title. The phrase is also associated with Father Edward J. Flanagan, the founder of Boys Town. Flanagan came across a line drawing of a young boy carrying his brother in the Christmas 1941 edition of the Louis Allis Messenger. The caption read "He ain't heavy Mister—he's m' brother!" It was created by Mr. Van B. Hooper who later became the editor of Ideals. The drawing was reprinted in the first issue of Ideals in December 1944. Flanagan felt that the drawing illustrated the work done at Boys Town and received permission from the company in August 1943 to recreate the drawing in color with the caption "He ain't heavy, Father . . . he's m' brother." The phrase became the motto of Boys Town. The statement is a use of paraprosdokian, a figure of speech in which the second half of the statement causes the hearer to reinterpret the first part. Often used for comedic effect, this is a

rare use of the form as pathos. The Hollies' recording, which featured Elton John on piano, was released in the UK on 1 September 1969 and on 1 December 1969 in the US. "He Ain't Heavy" reached #3 in the UK and #7 in the US. The song, paired with "Carrie", was rereleased in late 1988 in the UK following its use in a television advertisement for Miller Lite beer. It reached the #1 spot in the UK chart for two weeks in September 1988. In Ireland, the Hollies' version of the song entered the charts twice, on its first entry in October 1969 it peaked at #3 and spent 10 weeks in the charts, and on its second entry in September 1988, as a result of its Miller Lite advertisement usage, it peaked at #2. Lyrics The road is long With many a winding turns That leads us to who knows where Who knows where But I'm strong Strong enough to carry him He ain't heavy, he's my brother His welfare is of my concern No burden is he to bear We'll get there For I know He would not encumber me He ain't heavy, he's my brother If I'm laden at all I'm laden with sadness That everyone's heart Isn't filled with the gladness Of love for one another It's a long, long road From which there is no return While we're on the way to there Why not share And the load Doesn't weigh me down at all He ain't heavy he's my brother He's my brother He ain't heavy, he's my brother He ain't heavy, he's my brother

model planes must be kept more than 30m away from other people as well as 30m from any buildings, cars or boats where people are present. In addition model planes can only be operated in daylight within line of sight, not higher than 400ft above ground level and well clear of airports and any other planes. “It is good practice not to let your model aircraft get too far away from you,” CASA said. “Operators must never fly their remotely controlled aircraft towards people, particularly during take-off and landing,” CASA said. “Take-off and landing areas must be clear of people and obstacles and a watch should be kept for curious children.” The regulator also warned that “if model planes are flown over other people's homes or backyards it is recommended permission be obtained”. “It is recommended model aircraft not be used above areas with lots of people such as beaches, sporting events and crowded parks,” CASA said. “Care should be taken to stay away from power lines, trees, buildings and other structures that could lead to a mid-air collision which will damage a model plane.” CASA also warned that if a collision with power lines occurs there should be “no attempt to rescue an aircraft”.

Model aircraft flight path warning
Australia's safety watchdog has issued a warning about misusing remotely controlled model planes and helicopters received as Christmas presents.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority outlined a set of regulations covering the operation of model planes to minimise risks to safety. In 2009 CASA fined Redcliffe man Shane Currie for flying a model plane dangerously close to a Virgin Blue Boeing 737 about to land at Perth Airport. Mr Currie mounted a video camera on the plane and then posted the video on YouTube. The video, which was taken down by Mr Currie and then reposted by others has been seen over 250,000 times. It shows the model plane twisting and turning, then a Virgin Blue 737 flashes past before the model plane turns to follow the jet and crashes after being hit by jet wash. At the time, a former CASA inspector said that this type of offence would have attracted a fine of $3000. Flying a model plane within 5.5km of an airport or a plane approach path is a Federal offence. Yesterday CASA said that the regulations covering model planes are designed to protect people, property and other aircraft from injury or damage that could result from potential collisions. “Penalties may apply if these regulations are broken,” a CASA spokesman said. It says “the regulations are based on common sense and allow people to fly their model aircraft for recreation with no need for any approval”. The regulations state that

Despite her newfound love of her large frame, Ms Massey says life is not always easy. She has limited mobility and receives a disablilty pension. But Ms Massey says there are plenty of men who appreciate her curves, including Albert, the father of her sons. Ms Massey now hopes to inspire other women to love their bodies just the way they are. 'I'm trying to make the most of what I've been given and being confident about who I am makes me happy,' added Ms Massey. 'If I can inspire others to embrace their curves and be proud big, beautiful women, I would be very happy.'

Proud of her two metre wide bottom
SARAH Massey's bottom is 2.1 meters wide - and she couldn't be happier.
The 33-year-old from Chicago in the US says she has a new found confidence in her body shape after posting pictures of her bottom online and getting plenty of positive feedback from 'fans'. Although she holds not official record, Ms Massey believes her bottom is the biggest in the world so large that doorways often prove a challenge. Massey wears size 10XL trousers and admits shopping for clothes can be difficult. She also says she has broken chairs and once cracked a toilet bowl by sitting

on it. But "big booty's" are in her blood, so she has learned to accept her unusually large behind and even take the bad comments that come with the good. "At school I was teased and called Dump Truck Butt by the other kids, but the condition is hereditary there's nothing I can do about it.'

A British woman who won $275 million in a lottery has left her husband and started a new relationship with the car salesman who sold her a luxury fleet of Audis.
Gillian Bayford, who won the Euromillions jackpot with her husband Adrian last year, has blamed the stresses of the lottery win for the breakdown of their nine-year marriage. And Alan Warnock has reportedly quit his job with the car dealership and moved in with the multi-millionairess. When mother of two Mrs Bayford, 41, announced her separation there was speculation about a relationship with married gardener Chris Tovey, 40, who worked on the couple's 80ha East Anglia estate.

spotted Christmas shopping and he has been seen helping with her eightyear-old daughter and sixyear-old son. It is understood Mr Bayford is aware of his wife's new relationship. A settlement has been reached to split the lottery haul. When the couple won one of Britain's biggest lottery prizes, they said they would not let the windfall change them. But last month Mr Bayford, 43, said: "Gillian and I have split. When you win the lottery it's so stressful." Mrs Bayford and Mr Warnock met in October last year when the lottery winners went to visited Gillian's parents in Scotland.

Biting fish injure more than Charges over cat stuffed 70 bathers into bottle
A swarm of biting fish injured more than 70 A Taiwanese uni student could go to jail people who were bathing at a popular beach in for stuffing her cat into a jar, after Argentina on Christmas, a medical official said. uploading pictures to her Facebook page.
A seven-year-old girl had her finger partially amputated and dozens more suffered bite wounds on their extremities from the fish, a relative of the piranha called "palometas," said Federico Cornier, the director of emergency services in the city of Rosario. "This is not normal," Cornier said on television. "It's normal for there to be an isolated bite or injury, but the magnitude in this case was great ... this is an exceptional event." The attack happened off the popular beaches of the Parana River near Rosario, 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of Buenos Aires, where many Argentines w e r e seeking relief from a heat wave over the holiday. Kiki Lin has been charged with animal abuse for forcing her cat also named Kiki into the container. Online commenters were appalled by images of feline Kiki being crammed into the tiny space but human Kiki dismissed their criticisms. She said she had put the cat in the jar to test ways of transporting it. The Taichung City Animal Protection and Health Inspection Office has charged Ms Lin with animal protection law violations.If found guilty she could be fined or be sentenced to a year in prison.

In a further twist, Mr Tovey claimed that Mr Bayford injured him in a golf buggy collision and is suing the couple.

The world's strangest New Year's traditions
THE dawning of a new year is cause for celebration. You made it through Christmas with the in-laws after all.
But while raising a glass of bubbly has become commonplace, have you ever chucked a chair out the window or chatted to a cat to see in the New Year? If you thought crossing arms and singing Auld Lang Syne when it strikes 12am on January 1 was a bit odd, think again. Social networking site Badoo conducted a survey for its users to vote what are the world's strangest and funniest New Year's traditions. It didn't disappoint. In the strange stakes Chile took top honours with spending the night in a cemetery in the company of dead loved ones. However, in Romania, it's tradition to try to talk to animals. If they don't speak back you will find true happiness. No surprise, this has quite a high success rate and budgies are nowhere to be seen. If you're in Spain, Italy or Mexico get your red undies on as they're a sign of good luck In Johannesburg, South Africa, people are inclined to throw furniture out of a window as a metaphor of out with the old and in with the new, while in Ireland bread is hit against walls to ward off evil spirits. But the weirdness doesn't stop at batting baps against walls. In Peru neighbor's box to settle longstanding quarrels; in Thailand a giant three-day water fight begins; and in Siberia people jump into a frozen lake while holding a tree. We'll stick to fireworks, thanks. Top 5 strangest customs: 1. Spending the night in a cemetery in the company of dead loved ones (Talca, Chile) 2. Attempting to hear animals speaking, in the hopes of finding true happiness (Romania) 3. Striking the walls with bread to ward off evil spirits (Ireland) 4 . Throwing furniture out the window (Johannesb urg, South Africa) 5 . Jumping into a frozen lake w h i l e carrying a tree trunk

Protesting theatre director rams French palace gate
A t h e a t r e director rammed a car into the rear gate of the F r e n c h presidential palace in protest over cuts in government funding for the arts, police and state officials said.
The 67-year-old Italian national was arrested as he attempted to force his way through the 19th century Grille du Coq, or Rooster Gate, which leads into the gardens of the Elysee palace. He was protesting against cuts in subsidies to his small Parisian theatre, the Italian c u t s i n subsidies for his theatre," the source said. Police had arrested him but let him go shortly afterwards. Socialist President Francois Hollande has cut into France's traditionally generous culture budget as part of his efforts to reduce the budget deficit. Hollande was working in the palace as usual at the time of the incident, a press officer said. The gate was now being given a fresh coat of paint, he added. A spokeswoman for the culture ministry said if the theatre director wished to meet officials in a more conventional way, the ministry would gladly open its doors to him.
