New group to share the load at Hawks Nest

Posted on 贵阳桑拿论坛 贵阳桑拿按摩 贵阳洗浴休闲

Narelle Hawkes and Cheryl Milburn hope the group has a positive impact.A RELAXED environment to share experiences of Parkinsons Disease will be available at Tea Gardens with the establishment of the new Myall Movers Parkinson support group.

The group will be holding a bi-monthly meeting at the Silver Dolphin Room at Tea Gardens Hotel provided by Rob Anderson beginning April 2.

Cheryl Milburn of the group said carers, as well as those who suffer from the disease were welcome to come along to mix with other people and learn about how to find additional support services available in the area.

“You don’t need to do it on your own,” she said.

She emphasised that the meetings would be very low key with “no minutes, no fundraisers and no outside commitments”.

To help kickstart Myall Movers, support group coordinator of Parkinson’s NSW Trish Morgan, and Sue Tait from the Parkinsons Information Line recently met with the group.

Group member Narelle Hawkes said while the group would be an ideal place to be able to talk with empathetic people, official information should still be obtained through the Parkinsons information line on 1800 644 189.

Anyone interested in taking part in the group can call Mrs Milburn on 4997 2442 or Mrs Hawkes on 4997 0609.

A quick response crucial

Posted on 贵阳外围女 贵阳桑拿 贵阳夜网

Cyril Edwards and his wife Jan with paramedic Ray O’Brien who played a vital role in Cyril’s recovery. – Picture by Nathalie CraigJUST four days after suffering a severe and debilitating stroke, Cyril Edwards was back working at The Oyster Hut in Tea Gardens.

With this week being Brain Awareness Week the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI) has pinpointed the Pindimar resident as an exceptional recovery case.

A stroke can often result in years of rehabilitation and significant lifestyle changes but watching Mr Edwards busily shuck oysters he seems in perfect health.

Saving Mr Edward’s life began with the snappy response of Tea Gardens paramedics who had been specially trained in a stroke management course.

“Within two hours of my son phoning the ambulance I was being treated in John Hunter Hospital,” Mr Edwards said.

His “incredible recovery” was also a result of research by HMRI Professor Chris Levi and his team.

“Chris Levi and his team were waiting for me in the emergency department, they explained the details of the stroke research and the clot-busting therapy,” he said.

“My wife and I agreed to proceed with it immediately.”

The treatment began reducing his stroke symptoms within an hour and by the next morning feeling was returning to his arms and legs.

By the very next day he was walking unassisted.

“It wasn’t until I got up and began walking around the stroke ward that I realised just how big of a deal it all was,” he said.

“All the other men who had similar strokes to mine were physically immobile, that was when it really hit home.”

Professor Levi said “clot-busting therapy” for acute stroke was one of the few effective treatments and by far the most powerful, but could only be delivered in the first hours after the onset of the stroke.

The HMRI is conducting rural pre-hospital acute stroke triage (rural PAST) project, looking at a new system of care for rural stroke patients with clot busting drug treatment.

“Cyril is part of the rural PAST study and we are delighted with his outcome and his great progress,” Professor Levi said.

Track title for Amelia Top Hunter award to Tea Gardens

Posted on 贵阳伴游模特 贵阳商务模特 贵阳外围女

AT JUST 13 years of age Tea Gardens cyclist Amelia Follett capped off her second year in track racing by being awarded Hunter District Cycling Club female cyclist of the year.

One of her many achievements includes being chosen to represent her club at the Australian Junior Track Series with five other team mates.

The series was attended by Australia’s up and coming junior track racers and Follett finished in sixth place.

The races were held in Sydney, Launceston, Melbourne and Perth but the final race at Adelaide was too close to the NSW Championships so Follett was unable to attend.

At the recent State Championships held at the Dunk Grey Velodrome in Sydney, Follett and her team mate won the first round of the 500 metre sprint. In a very close final the girls were only a wheel length away from winning and had to settle for silver.

Racing again at the Dunc Grey Velodrome at the NSW Club Team Pursuit Championships Follett and her 13- year-old team mates raced under 19s and masters women with the final 2000 meters race. After losing the qualifier to the Bathurst Women’s team the girls managed to beat them the second time and brought home the state bronze medal.

She also won the coveted Cyclecover Sydney Cup Championships. Follett would like to thank Jim and Anne, owners of The Tea Gardens Ice Cream Shack for their generous sponsorship which has enabled her to buy much needed equipment.

The Ice Cream Shack has a slide show of photos of Follett and her sister racing as well as a calendar of events, and they will have regular updates of their racing.

Bulahdelah fishers in title lead

Posted on 贵阳外围女 贵阳桑拿 贵阳夜网

LAST weekend saw a small but dedicated band of Bulahdelah Fishing Club members compete in the Mid-North Coast Estuary Titles. Our members fished in locations from Tea Gardens to Laureton in the hope of gaining valuable points towards our efforts to win the Ted Auckland Shield and be crowned the best performing club on the Mid-North Coast.

Our best chance of success always rested with Tea Gardens guru Tom Evans and he certainly did not let us down. He presented a quality bag of bream and flathead to once again be crowned estuary champion for the second year running. Tom also teamed with Josh Gregory and Darren Carrall for the runners up mens team. Our ladies team of Angela Battle, Rose Crick and Vanessa Shultz were also runners up in ladies teams. Good efforts also from Paul Shultz and Leteisha Lilley who both presented great catches.

At the conclusion of the estuary title Bulahdelah leads the division on 43 points with Port Macquarie and Lake Cathie in a tie for second place on 39 points and the improving Harrington on 25 points.

The deep sea championships are next on the fishing calendar on March 31 and April 1. The weigh-in will be held at Bulahdelah Golf Club at 1pm on Sunday afternoon. Any interested spectators are always welcome. Good luck Bulahdelah, the competition is close with the Rock and Beach Titles on June 23 and 24 the deciding event.

Jack-knife closes road

Posted on 贵阳伴游模特 贵阳商务模特 贵阳外围女

 The semi-trailer was retrieved using a crane.THE Pacific Highway was closed to all northbound traffic at Karuah for more than 12 hours last Thursday following a truck accident.

A b-double, semi-trailor jack-knifed at about 3:30am on Thursday into Karuah Creek on the Pacific Highway. Deputy captain of Tea Gardens Fire and Rescue Leon Katz said they received a call soon after the accident notifying them that the driver of the truck was trapped. When Tea Gardens Rescue 471 arrived on scene the 61-year-old driver had since released himself from the cab. The man was transported to John Hunter Hospital hospital in a stable condition and has since been released.

“The truck was carrying a mixed load of bleach, flavoured milk and bread,” Mr Katz said.

“Our main concern was the risk of contamination”.

The crew put in place booms in the creek to contain the spill and was later requested to stand by with the pump as fire protection. The truck was eventually removed by crane with fire crews from Newcastle, Morpeth, Holmesville and HAZMAT 20 attending.

More time for comment

Posted on 贵阳洗浴中心 贵阳桑拿网 贵阳水疗

THE public is being given additional time to comment on a proposal to help unlock land in century-old paper subdivisions across NSW including land at North Arm Cove, Pindimar and Bundabah.

The NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure is exhibiting a draft regulation and guideline to help overcome the barrier previously preventing new housing from being built in paper subdivisions.

Paper subdivision are “planning anomalies” where land was subdivided for housing many decades ago but new housing has not been permitted.

Minister for planning Rob Hazzard said these areas typically had problems with small lot sizes and poor infrastructure. The exhibition period has been extended by three weeks and submissions can now be lodged until Friday, March 30. The extended period for public comment will allow further consultation and engagement with affected landowners and the council. The proposed process could be used to amend a subdivision layout to amalgamate smaller lots into more viable parcels and allocate land for roads and infrastructure to enable development to proceed. The proposal is available to view at www.planning.nsw.gov.au/onexhibition. Submissions can be emailed to housingpolicy@planning.nsw.gov.au or posted to Policy, Planning Systems and Reform, Department of Planning and Infrastructure, GPO Box 39, Sydney NSW 2001. Submissions will be made publicly available. If you do not want your name or other personal details to be made available, this should be clearly stated in the submission.

State’s best ride into town

Posted on 贵阳外围女 贵阳桑拿 贵阳夜网

THE ARMIDALE Cycling Club will host the NSW junior cycling championships this weekend for the second year at three locations.

The weekend’s championships comprise of three events, including an individual time trial on Saturday morning, age group criterium races on Saturday afternoon and the road race on Sunday morning.

With more than 180 junior riders set to roll into Armidale from the under-10 through to the under-17 championships, Armidale Cycling Club’s Mark Bullen said the competition would be tough.

“Some of the best up and coming riders will be in Armidale this weekend and with three different events, we will see some great racing,” he said.

With the state titles in town, many of Armidale’s young local riders will take to the three events and are in good form.

“Sam Jenner is currently in great form and performing really well,” Bullen said.

“He will compete in all three races and should finish at the front end of the field, but as to where he should expect to finish it is really dependent on what happens on the day.”

Along with Jenner, Harrison Munday will also battle it out in the under-17 division, Sam Bible will compete in the under-11s, Lachlan Harris will be in the under-13s and Freya Weston will compete in the under-17 girls.

Last year the state championships were held at the University of New England but this year all racing has been relocated to three separate venues including Long Swamp Road on Saturday morning, the Driver Education Centre on Saturday afternoon and the Old Inverell Road on Sunday morning.

Armidale’s Freya Weston will take part in the NSW state cycling championships this weekend.

Students enlist MyMaster website to write essays, assignment

Guiyang Night Net

Thousands of students have enlisted a Sydney company to write essays and assignments for them as well as sit online tests, paying up to $1000 for the service. Their desire to succeed threatens the credibility and international standing of some of our most prestigious institutions.

A Fairfax Media investigation has uncovered a sophisticated online business, which has produced thousands of university assignments and turned over hundreds of thousands of dollars since it began operating in May 2012.

Yingying Dou, a 30-year-old Chinese-born woman, is the sole director of MyMaster Group Pty Ltd, which is behind the website, written in Chinese and aimed at international students. It claims to be the largest essay-writing service in Sydney, with 100 graduate writers from “prestigious universities in Australia” ready to accept jobs at any one time.

A flyer posted to the back of a toilet door at UTS gives insight to the anxiety among international students Ms Dou has capitalised on.

“Are you racking your brains on your school work? Do you worry about spending $3000 retaking tuition on the failing subject? Leave your worries to MyMaster and make your study easier!” the flyer says in translation.

Fairfax Media has seen 700 receipts for direct deposits to the MyMaster bank account, totalling more than $160,000 this year alone – a conservative estimate of the company’s annual income, as students can also pay by cash or PayPal.

Payments range from $13 to $1050 and during busy assessment periods the website receives up to 20 requests a day.

One request lodged was for a 6000-word research assignment for a human rights law course at the University of NSW, which was worth 70 per cent of the student’s overall grade.

The cheating is widespread throughout the state’s university system, with almost 1000 assignments produced this year for students studying courses as diverse as philosophy, economics, law, engineering, astronomy and marketing.

One student spent more than $1500 on assignments for five different courses at the University of Newcastle’s Business School. Another student from the University of Wollongong paid for at least eight assignments.

The University of Sydney, the state’s premier institution, was among the most widely affected, with cheating spread across multiple faculties. During 2014, students from at least 37 of the university’s courses used the service.

The entrepreneur, Yingying Dou, went to high school at Pittwater House, a private school in Collaroy on Sydney’s northern beaches, and studied accounting at Macquarie University.

When approached by Fairfax Media, Ms Dou, who runs a university tutoring company called Yingcredible, would not comment on the MyMaster website.

“If you’re talking about MyMaster, I have nothing to talk [about],” she said. “No comment for today.”

Records show MyMaster and Yingcredible Tutoring are registered to the same principal place of business in Sussex Street in Chinatown. Ms Dou is also the registrant of the mymaster南京夜网.au website domain.

Within hours of Fairfax Media approaching Ms Dou, the MyMaster website was taken down.

 

A postgraduate finance student at Macquarie University said the practice of buying assignments online was widespread. On two separate occasions while he was working on a group assignment, international students in the group suggested they purchase the assignment online, rather than do the work themselves.

“I was not keen on that idea. I think people just want to do whatever they can to pass the course at all costs,” he said.

Assignment prices are advertised as a flat rate based on the number of words and the student’s level of qualification, with masters students paying more for assignments than undergraduate or diploma. The flat rates promise students a pass or credit grade, but they can negotiate a price for work that is of a distinction or high distinction quality.

MyMaster recruits its writers on Chinese social media sites, promising good rates and an end-of-year bonus.

In addition to essays, MyMaster customers have paid for business reports, speeches, powerpoint presentations and the completion of online tests, and requests range from short homework tasks to comprehensive research assignments.

Some students uploaded instructions for their ghost writer, explicitly detailing how they wanted their assignment to be completed.

 

They are guaranteed the purchased work is original and will not be detected by the universities’ plagiarism software.

Fairfax Media is aware of numerous websites offering similar services to students in Australia but most appear to be located offshore.

Australia’s international student market is a $15 billion industry and the country’s largest export after iron ore, coal and gold. International students, who often pay more than three times as much as locals for their degrees, generate a quarter of the annual income at some Australian universities.

Key interstate universities have also been ensnared in the scandal including RMIT, La Trobe University, Curtin University and the Queensland University of Technology.

The chief executive of Universities Australia, Belinda Robinson, said universities were aware of operations like MyMaster looking to exploit “a small minority of students seeking an easy path to success”.

“Students caught deliberately attempting to pass others’ work off as their own can be subject to harsh sanctions, up to and including automatic failure of courses and, ultimately, expulsion from the university,” she said.
