Canberra Floriade marks end of long winter in the capital

Posted September 15, 2017 16:22:15

It is the 30th anniversary of Canberra’s iconic spring event, Floriade.

The festival of flowers draws a half a million people each year, beating out even the Summernats crowd for attendance.

Floriade is the signal to locals that it is safe to emerge from the cold. And the festival’s head gardener of 20 years, Andrew Forster, is happy with how it is shaping up.

“Everything is doing what it’s told this year,” he said.

More than a million tulips, daisies, violets, pansies and poppies (no roses) have been carefully cultivated since February for the spectacle.

“I love the poppies, but they need lots of food, they’re like a little baby that needs to be fed,” Mr Forster said.

Down by the lake, the poppies flutter in a chill breeze — spring has not quite come to Canberra yet.

But it is the tulips in particular that the Dutch-inspired Floriade is renowned for and they are just starting to poke their heads through the dirt.

Mounds of them make the shape of bananas and watermelon slices, piano keys and DNA strands — a ‘greatest hits’ of displays from Floriade’s past.

The tulips are carefully planted to flower early and late in the festival so that the displays are vibrant through the month Floriade runs.

Events ACT spokeswoman Jasmine De Martin said Floriade’s 30th is a big milestone.

“It is quite a big day for people to come out and enjoy spring in Canberra,” she said.

Turnbull ends week on a high, but it might not last long

Updated September 15, 2017 14:02:36

As Malcolm Turnbull concluded his final answer during Question Time on Thursday, after two weeks of political rough and tumble, his backbench literally thumped their desks in support.

It was a rare sight for a party which usually spends way too much time staring despondently at their phones, led by a man who, since taking on the job of Prime Minister two years ago, has fallen well short of voters’ expectations.

Just before Question Time got underway, the PM had gathered his troops in the atrium adjoining the chamber to congratulate them for their efforts over the gruelling fortnight in Canberra.

He was right to do so.

It has in fact been one of his best parliamentary sessions in many months.

The week ended with the Senate passing the full suite of media reforms that previous governments have been trying to land for many, many years.

“It is another example of making the 45th Parliament work,” the Prime Minister beamed from the courtyard outside his Parliamentary office.

Concerns about long-term risks

A strong finish for a Government that began the fortnight in the grip of chaos.

Labor had gone the nuclear option on Barnaby Joyce’s citizenship status, disrupting every day of last week’s Parliament with gag motions and attempts to suspend debate.

But the Tony Abbott-inspired tactic hurt Labor as much as the Government and this week the Opposition finally stepped onto the Coalition’s preferred battleground.

Rather than the citizenship crisis and the divisive issue of same-sex marriage, the Government and Opposition became fully engaged on the issue of energy.

The Government wants to be seen to be fighting on behalf of voters who are paying too much for electricity.

Hence AGL boss Andy Vesey became the latest energy executive to be hauled unceremoniously to Canberra for a stern talking to.

Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg went toe-to-toe with Labor’s Joel Fitzgibbon in the corridors of the press gallery. And the Government continued its puerile attacks on “Blackout Bill” Shorten, “Brownout [Mark] Butler” and “No Coal Joel” Fitzgibbon.

It doesn’t seem matter to them who they’re fighting, as long as they’re seen to be taking up arms.

A big and complex problem

For now, it’s a tactic that is working for the Government, but several members of Cabinet are concerned about the longer-term risks.

All pretence of an “energy trilemma” has now been dropped.

Consideration of low carbon emissions now comes a distant third to power prices and reliability of supply.

In fact, a sizable number of MPs believe the Chief Scientist’s preferred option of a Clean Energy Target is now “dead”.

But with nothing to replace it, the uncertainty that continues to repel potential investors in the energy sector remains, as does the risk of price spikes and blackouts.

The Federal Government has fought all year to take ownership of energy, an issue that used to be the domain of the states.

Now Mr Turnbull owns a big and complex problem.

If he actually delivers lower power bills and reliability of supply, while meeting our Paris climate commitments, he’ll be seen in a very good light indeed.

But if there are blackouts this summer and further electricity price spikes to come, he’ll rightly cop the blame and this fortnight’s tactical win in Parliament will mean nothing.

Technology helps kids with dyslexia experience joy of reading, writing

Posted September 15, 2017 09:00:00

Angus Crockett knows what it feels like to be stuck still trying to read instructions when all the other kids in the class have finished their work.

The nine-year-old Harrison Primary School student was diagnosed with dyslexia last year.

“Dyslexia is very annoying most of the time,” he said.

“It’s like if every word was written in a secret code which kids with dyslexia have to try to crack.

“It makes it very hard to do easy things like reading and writing and it takes you longer to learn things.”

Primary symptoms of dyslexia

  • Problems learning the letter sounds for reading and spelling
  • Difficulty in reading single words, such as on flash cards and in lists (decoding)
  • Lack of fluency
  • Reading slowly with many mistakes
  • Poor spelling
  • Poor visual gestalt/coding (orthographic coding)

Source: Australian Dyslexia Association

Since his diagnosis, Angus’s school has been exploring ways to facilitate his learning with an individual plan and useful technology.

“Instead of just writing things up in my writing books, I use my iPad now to help me type up things,” he told ABC Radio Canberra.

“It makes it quicker and neater.”

Angus’s mum Jessica said teachers at the school had also helped avoid confidence-crushing situations.

“He’s not called on to read in front of the class, which can be quite upsetting,” she said.

The Crockett family were able to arrange the majority of testing for dyslexia through Harrison Primary School.

“For a long time we knew there were some significant reading issues,” Mrs Crockett said.

“But we didn’t know if he just wasn’t getting it or whether there was something like dyslexia at play.

“Friends of ours have paid upwards of $2,000 to have the testing done.

“For many it can be really very difficult.”

Can a C-pen help?

Angus is now on a mission to raise $4,000 with the help of a Go Fund Me campaign to buy a set of C-pens for his school.

“The C-pen looks a little bit like a highlighter,” he explained.

“It’s a scanning pen which can read words or whole sentences out loud if you don’t recognise them.

“But they cost $390 each and that’s expensive.”

How does a C-pen work?

  • It’s a pocket-sized, portable device
  • Reads text aloud when the nib is passed over a word
  • Also displays dictionary definition
  • Built-in microphone allows user to record audio and replay it
  • Text and audio can also be uploaded to computer

ACT Minister for Education Yvette Berry said she would be interested to learn more about the effectiveness of C-pens for children with dyslexia.

“ACT schools are provided with funding to purchase things like this,” she said.

“Schools will decide what best meets the needs of children in their own schools.

“If C-pens do meet the needs of children in the way that they can learn, then it is something that school communities should consider.”

Mrs Crockett said parents looking for support or help with diagnosis of dyslexia should contact the Australian Dyslexia Association.

National Museum’s Songlines exhibition showcases epic dreamtime tale

Updated September 14, 2017 17:53:09

As tense as a Hollywood epic, and as multi-layered as Greek mythology, the Seven Sisters dreamtime story rivals some of the great narratives.

Seven sisters leave Roeburn in Western Australia, tracking east over 500 square kilometres to the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) lands in the Northern Territory and South Australia.

The sisters are pursued by an evil shape-shifting spirt, a man called Wati Nyiru or Yurlu, who drives them across the land and into the night sky where they become the Pleiades star cluster.

“The sisters don’t want to marry the Wati Nyiru, but the Wati Nyiru was a really tricky man,” said Tapaya Edwards, a cultural ambassador of the Pitjantjatjara nation.

This creation story is shared by many clans in the Western and Central deserts, and it has now influenced a major Australian exhibition described as a world-first in scale and complexity.

Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters is a collaboration with Aboriginal elders who are custodians of the story. It will open tomorrow at the National Museum of Australia.

“It wasn’t a museum idea, it was an Anangu idea,” said Margo Neale, the museum’s senior Indigenous curator.

“They came to us and said, ‘Our songlines are being broken up, we want you mob to help us put them back together again’.

“That means tracking the Seven Sisters songlines, in this case, across three deserts.”

The exhibition features the world’s highest resolution DomeLab — a cave-like experience which projects images of the only known Seven Sisters rock art at Cave Hill in South Australia.

More than 100 detailed and vibrant paintings and 66 weavings, spears and sculptures are on show; each piece tells a story on the sisters’ journey, allowing visitors to ‘walk’ the songlines.

For several years the museum worked with custodians of the Seven Sisters songlines, said Mr Edwards.

“The elders wanted to show the Seven Sisters story to the wider world; we had a big meeting and a community consultation to talk about how we were going to make it, it was a big, huge process,” he said.

Mr Edwards, who dances the story he’s known since childhood, said elders wanted the wider Australian public to know about their tjukurpa — an Anangu word which describes the creation time where spirits shaped the landscape.

“The sisters are running and forming [the country], they are making rock holes, clay pans, bush tomatoes and all Anangu are now seeing this when they go for hunting,” he said.

“They recognise the sisters made this.”

Dr Neale hoped the exhibition would encourage the preservation of more songlines, which she said were being lost as elders passed away.

“Sharing it with all Australians is very much part of preserving it.

“If you live in this country, you need to know its creation stories. There is an urgent need for this exhibition right now.”

Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters opens tomorrow and runs until February 2018.

Peacekeeping memorial opens in Canberra

Updated September 14, 2017 14:20:12

A new memorial honouring Australia’s international peacekeeping operations has been officially opened in Canberra this morning.

Volunteers, veterans and supporters began work to create the Australian Peacekeeping Memorial on Anzac Parade 12 years ago.

The memorial features two large black polished concrete monoliths separated by a passageway, as well as a courtyard of reflection.

“As you move through the memorial monoliths through a passageway of light, the idea is the peacekeepers are keeping apart the warring forces and providing the hope,” planning committee chairman Major General Tim Ford said.

The courtyard contains statements in bronze listing Australia’s peacekeeping missions, as well as bronze descriptions of the characteristics of peacekeepers.

The memorial honours the service and sacrifice of more than 80,000 military, police and civilian peacekeepers who served in 62 missions over the past 70 years.

“Many have been injured and traumatised by what they have had to put up with … in very difficult and dangerous situations,” Major General Ford said.

“We are very much wanting to recognise, not just the peacekeepers, but the families and their supporters.”

Major General Ford said securing $4 million to complete the major sculpture proved the greatest challenge.

“The Australian community really didn’t recognise and understand the great work that was being done by peacekeepers around the world,” he said.

“We have actually been in many more conflicts as peacekeepers than we have actually as combatants.

“It is an important message for the Australian community to understand that international peace and security is not just about fighting the last minute and then having to decide whether you are going to commit armed forces.”

In the service of peace

In his dedication of the new Australian Peacekeeping Memorial, Governor-General Peter Cosgrove praised peacekeepers’ sacrifice, humanity and compassion in protecting the vulnerable and the dispossessed.

“It seems part of the human condition to want it with every fibre of our being, but never to attain perfect peace,” he said.

“In their blue berets, peacekeepers are a symbol of hope. They save lives and change lives, they restore order and bring security and stability.

“Peacekeepers do all this not in the name of conquest or self aggrandisement, nor in the name of parochial national self-interest. They do it, in the name of compassion and humanity. In the name of what is right.”

‘Thin blue line between two belligerent parties’

Lieutenant Colonel Deborah Warren-Smith said while today’s recognition for peacekeepers was long overdue, the greatest reward and satisfaction came from contributing to operations.

“As a peacekeeper you are there to be the thin blue line sometimes between the two belligerent parties,” she said.

“You may be there to enact and observe and report on.

“It may be a truce agreement or a disengagement agreement, which is what I was doing when I was deployed with the United Nations.”

Lieutenant Colonel Warren-Smith served un-armed as a military observer in Israel, Lebanon and Syria.

“It is a recognition by Australia for 70 years of continuous peacekeeping, which is a really big contribution to the humanitarian side of what we are trying to achieve as peacekeepers,” she said.

Man shot in legs in Canberra bikie shooting, police say

Updated September 14, 2017 13:33:55

A man has suffered gunshot wounds to his legs in a bikie-related shooting in Canberra’s south overnight, police have said.

A young child and woman were also inside a Kambah home when a group of men allegedly forced their way in at 10:15pm.

Police entered the house on Pinkerton Circuit to find the man had been shot in the legs and assaulted before the group fled in a number of cars.

The man was taken to the Canberra Hospital with two gunshot wounds. Forensic officers examined the scene.

Acting Superintendent of Criminal Investigations Matt Reynolds said the violent act, which he believed was linked to the Nomads bikie gang, would not be tolerated in the ACT.

“This was a targeted incident and Taskforce Nemesis [their dedicated bikie arm], in addition to every ACT Policing officer, will continue our efforts to disrupt OMCG members and their activities,” he said.

Police have not yet made any arrests over the incident.

The incident follows a number of shootings in south Canberra in July that police linked to bikie gangs.

In one of three shootings in less than a fortnight, a house neighbouring a childcare centre was sprayed with bullets.

In the other incidents, 27 bullets were fired into a house at Waramanga and another home was attacked in Kambah.

There have now been seven violent incidents related to bikies in the ACT in recent months.

Police have urged anyone who saw suspicious activity in Kambah last night, or has any information or CCTV that could assist police, to contact Crime Stoppers.

‘Pull the trigger’: Turnbull again urges NT to lift fracking ban

Posted September 14, 2017 11:35:07

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has again told the NT Chief Minister to “pull the trigger” on gas mining in an effort to persuade him to lift the current ban on fracking.

Last night, Mr Turnbull used a speech at an expo promoting Northern Australia in Canberra to reiterate a position he made clear during a recent visit to Darwin.

NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner was among business and political representatives from Northern Australia who were in the audience when the Prime Minister delivered his speech.

“There’s a lot of gas in the North, Michael,” he said.

“Pull the trigger, Gunner. Pull the trigger.

“We need that gas down here … there is not enough supply and we need more of that gas.”

The NT Labor Government put a 12-month moratorium on fracking in September 2016 and will decide whether to lift the ban when the findings of a fracking inquiry are delivered.

Mr Gunner and Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, spoke before the Prime Minister, and used the platform to talk about partnering with the Commonwealth and the potential in the North.

“Half of the nation’s exports come from the north of Australia and we have 5 per cent of the population,” Mr Gunner said.

“Imagine what we could do with more people.

“We are rich in culture, we are rich in land and we are rich in potential and we the NT want to work with you here in Canberra and those across the country to embrace all that we have and all that we can be.”

In his speech, Mr Turnbull said he hoped Mr Gunner decided to allow mining in the vast and untapped gas fields that gas companies have said exist in the NT.

“I hope he is moving sedately but purposely and irreversibly towards opening up that big shoal gas province in the Northern Territory,” Mr Turnbull said.

He said lifting the ban would bring benefits to southern, eastern and northern markets.

“There is a lot of good news associated with shale gas and having more of that available in the Territory and across Australia will be enormously important,” he said.

“While obviously a lot of that will come south and to the east coast and southern markets, there is the opportunity to do a lot with it in the Northern Territory as well.

“Affordable gas has been a driver of jobs. It has been a driver of manufacturing. It actually is a driver of lower emissions too.”

It is not the first time the Northern Territory’s energy policy has been criticised by the Prime Minister.

In a speech at the Country Liberals annual conference in Darwin on Saturday, Mr Turnbull said the Northern Territory was at risk of squandering its “immense” resource opportunities.

“My message to Michael Gunner is: pull the trigger, get on with it,” Mr Turnbull said in that speech.

“The jobs, the investment, the opportunities that come with opening up 180 years of gas that you’re sitting on is endless.”

Like other leaders, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten did not chime into the gas debate, but instead gave advice on the need to develop air, road and tourism infrastructure in the Northern Territory.

“You don’t need lectures from fly-in, fly-out politicians on day trips to the Territory, what you want is long-term commitment,” he said.

“We get that the Territory has got a future but we also understand that the Territory is not looking for a handout, what it says is that it just wants its fair share of faith and passion for the Territory.”

Man charged over tiny house allegedly stolen from Canberra, driven to Queensland

Updated September 14, 2017 13:40:50

A 24-year-old man has been charged over the alleged theft of a tiny house taken from Canberra on Sunday and sighted in Queensland about 24 hours later.

Queensland police seized the prototype display model in Hervey Bay – 1,416 kilometres north of the capital.

The man, believed to be from Canberra, was charged with bringing stolen goods into the state.

The house is mounted on a trailer and valued at about $20,000.

It was taken from Julie Bray’s Mitchell business about 8:15pm Sunday.

Within a matter of hours Ms Bray was notified of sightings more than 1,000 kilometres away in rural Queensland.

Ms Bray said she received reports on social media late Wednesday that it was spotted in Hervey Bay.

“I’m certainly very happy it has been found, as on Monday afternoon I was in despair because I thought I’d never get it back,” she said.

“I was astounded”.

‘I’m just really relieved’

Queensland police said they discovered the house in a backyard in the suburb of Dundowran about 3:00pm Wednesday and took it to a police storage facility.

Ms Bray relied heavily on Facebook to help track down her missing house, posting images that led to report of multiple sightings.

Timeline of a travelling house

8:15pm Sunday

  • Neighbours hear angle grinding in Ms Bray’s backyard and call police.

8:30am Monday

  • Ms Bray discovers the tiny house is missing and posts photos on her Facebook page, which was shared hundreds of times.

6:30pm Tuesday

  • Ms Bray checks her Facebook to receive a number of reports on the prototype’s apparent whereabouts, which she passes on to police.
  • She is told it was sighted late Monday afternoon at Kingaroy in Queensland, about 1,199 kilometres from Canberra.
  • By Tuesday morning it appeared to have made its way to Kilkivan, another 87 kilometres north of Kingaroy.

4:00pm Wednesday

  • Members of the internet’s “tiny house patrol” tell Ms Bray they may have seen the house in Hervey Bay – yet another 200 kilometres from its last sighting.

8:00am Thursday

  • Queensland police confirm a 24-year-old male was charged over the alleged theft.

Her initial post on her personal Facebook account was shared more than 400 times – a reaction that shocked her.

“Whenever I post something about a major crisis in the world I get no response, and then something that is a bit of a crisis for me that is not nearly as bad, goes crazy,” she said.

“When I think about how much it’s blown up, I think people probably thought we did this as some kind of publicity stunt.”

Ms Bray said the house was not registered but the culprits had put registered plates on.

She was not sure when she would get the house back, but hoped it would be soon.

“I’ll be speaking to police later today about where it is, what they can do and how long they need it,” she said.

“I’m just really relieved.”

The tiny house was intended for Ms Bray’s new business through which she will be manufacturing many more of the portable dwellings.

An ACT policing spokesman said this was the first report of a stolen tiny house they had ever received.

More charges could still be made in relation to stealing in the ACT.

The man is due to appear in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on October 5.

Unlawful strike could cost CFMEU millions

Updated September 13, 2017 17:15:25

The CFMEU and union officials are set to pay in excess of $2 million in penalties over unlawful industrial action at the Barangaroo site in Sydney.

The Federal Court is also referring the State Secretary of the NSW CFMEU Brian Parker and three other union officials to the Director of Public Prosecutions for allegedly giving false testimony in the case.

The strike involved about 1,000 workers and shut the construction site over two days in July 2014.

The court action was brought on by the Australian Building and Construction Commission.

In handing down a judgement on penalties today Justice Geoffrey Flick said the CFMEU should face a maximum penalty, listed in the court documents at $1.3 million.

The CFMEU New South Wales also faces a penalty of around $1 million.

The Federal Court has individually fined Mr Parker $45,400 with three other officials facing fines of over $40,000.

Justice Flick’s judgment concluded that the CFMEU “has long demonstrated by its conduct that it pays but little regard to compliance with the law and indeed has repeatedly sought to place itself above the law”.

“The CFMEU is to be regarded as a recidivist offender,” he said.

In the case of the penalties awarded against Mr Parker, Justice Flick outlined that it reflected the position he held as State Secretary.

“His intentions to stir up the workers and his setting out to create an atmosphere of defiance,” Justice Flick said.

“And a willingness to take on police if they stood in the way of achieving his objectives.”

The case had earlier heard in evidence from a police officer who said Mr Parker had tried to intimidate her.

The court has also recommended evidence from Brian Parker, Robert Kera, Luke Collier and Tony Sloane be referred to the DPP to determine whether an offence had been committed under section 35 of the Crimes Act (Commonwealth) in giving false testimony.

The CFMEU said its lawyers are now studying the decision.

The ABCC said today’s judgement reflected the seriousness of the conduct which saw threats against workers and ABCC inspectors.

Tiny house stolen from Canberra ‘spotted in rural Queensland less than a day later’

Updated September 14, 2017 09:48:15

A tiny house prototype stolen from a Canberra business appears to have made its way to a Queensland town 1,250 kilometres away in a matter of hours, according to the home’s owner.

The house, which is mounted on a trailer and valued at about $20,000, was stolen from Julie Bray’s Mitchell business late on Sunday.

“It was stolen from outside our office … at 8:15 Sunday night,” she said.

“Somebody who was in the vicinity heard angle grinding, came out and saw what was happening and called the police.”

But another surprise came when, less than a day later, Ms Bray received reports of the house appearing more than 1,000 kilometres away in rural Queensland.

“It was first spotted in Kingaroy at 5:30 on Monday night, then it was seen the next morning at Kilkivan, which is just north of Kingaroy, an hour north or something,” Ms Bray said.

“I was astounded.

“I don’t think I’ll need an engineering certificate for it now, it’s proven it can go very far, very fast.

Ms Bray said she posted pictures of the house on social media calling for help, and was confident the sighting in Queensland was legitimate.

“The guy that spotted it in Kingaroy was able to describe to me aspects of it that aren’t even in the photo,” she said.

“He was even able to describe a faded spot on the timber wall on the back … I remembered that we actually had a sign there, a business sign was on it, and they would have removed that.”

As of late Wednesday afternoon there were reports the house had been spotted as far north as Hervey Bay.

Reports of brown Falcon towing tiny house: police

ACT police confirmed they were investigating after attending the business following reports of a man tampering with the house, however it was gone by the time they arrived.

On Wednesday afternoon Queensland Police said they had issued an alert to all officers in the area to keep an eye out for the tiny house.

Gympie Police Senior Sergeant Gregg Davey said the tiny house was at one point parked at Kilkivan, but by the time police arrived the car and the house were gone.

“It was actually observed parked on the Wide Bay Highway in a park area,” he said.

“Some of the locals noticed the tiny house and because it was so peculiar they went over and had a look at it.

“It was observed to be attached to what appeared to be an old-model brown Falcon, bordering on being maroon, and that vehicle possible had either ACT or Victorian plates attached.”

Senior Sergeant Davey said it was an unusual case.

“In my 30 years experience I can certainly say I’ve never encountered this, [but] I’ve certainly watched a fair bit about these tiny houses on television,” he said.

“It’s important anyone with information gets onto the Queensland Police and we’ll make sure we get a car out there.”

Business ‘to lose thousands’

The tiny house, which is designed to be affordable yet large enough to live in, was an unfinished promotional model for the business, and Ms Bray said without it she would be thousands of dollars out of pocket.

Once plumbing is installed and final additions are made, the house would be worth $30,000.

“It needs to come back in perfect nick, I need it for a show in five and a half weeks, and I suppose otherwise send me 20 grand,” she said.

“They’re not cheap to replace and I haven’t really got time to build another one before the show.”
