Carlton president defends club's position on same-sex marriage - The Age

Carlton president Mark LoGiudice has strongly defended his club's refusal to take a position on same-sex marriage, saying "it's not for organisations to tell people how to vote".

Greater Western Sydney four years ago became the first AFL team to take a stand in support of marriage equality. The AFL and a number of other clubs including Geelong, Sydney, the Western Bulldogs and Essendon have backed the "yes" vote, but LoGiudice said of his club: "We don't like telling people what to do.

North Korean fuel ships dodge sanctions on the way back from Russia - The Sydney Morning Herald

Moscow: At least eight North Korean ships that left Russia with a cargo of fuel this year headed for their homeland despite declaring other destinations, a ploy that US officials say is often used to undermine sanctions.

US officials say that changing destination mid-voyage is a hallmark of North Korean state tactics to circumvent the international trade sanctions imposed over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Changing course and the complex chain of different firms - many offshore -  involved in shipments can complicate efforts to check how much fuel is supplied to North Korea and monitor compliance with a cap on fuel imports under UN sanctions.

"As part of North Korea's efforts to acquire revenue, the regime uses shipping networks to import and export goods," US Assistant...

Malcolm Roberts signed citizenship form without reading it, High Court hears - ABC Online

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts has admitted to signing a form which said he was a British citizen, but says he did so without reading the document.

Key points:

  • Senator Roberts sent two emails to inactive addresses during attempts to check his citizenship status
  • Senator Roberts conceeded he did not read his citizenship form, which his sister filled out for him
  • He said it remained unclear whether he still held his British citizenship

Senator Roberts' claims he did everything he could to renounce his British citizenship before the 2016 federal election are being tested in Brisbane today.

The constitution bans people with dual citizenship from being elected to Federal Parliament.

Questions were raised as to whether Senator Roberts held dual citizenship because he was born in India to a Welsh father and Australian mother.

Carlton president defends club's position on same-sex marriage - The Age

Carlton president Mark LoGiudice has strongly defended his club's refusal to take a position on same-sex marriage, saying "it's not for organisations to tell people how to vote".

Greater Western Sydney four years ago became the first AFL team to take a stand in support of marriage equality. The AFL and a number of other clubs including Geelong, Sydney, the Western Bulldogs and Essendon have backed the "yes" vote, but LoGiudice said of his club: "We don't like telling people what to do. People don't like being told what to do.

Hurricane Maria tears off roofs, triggers floods in Puerto Rico; death toll rises to nine in Caribbean - ABC Online

Rescue workers help people after the area was hit by Hurricane Maria.

The strongest storm to hit Puerto Rico in nearly 90 years has pummelled the island, tearing off roofs and sending doors flying from hinges, as officials warned Hurricane Maria would decimate infrastructure and communities.

Key points:

  • Hurricane Maria is expected to bring life-threatening winds for up to 24 hours
  • The last category four storm to hit Puerto Rico was in 1932
  • Authorities try to assess the damage in Dominica after communications went down

Maria, which has killed at least nine in the Caribbean, made landfall early on Wednesday (local time) in the south-east coastal town of Yabucoa as a category-four storm with winds of 250 kilometres per hour, and it was expected to punish the island with life-threatening winds for 12 to 24 hours, forecasters said.

As people waited it out...

Stop 'escalation,' Spain PM urges Catalan separatists as protest continues - Yahoo7 News

Angry protests in Barcelona as Catalan referendum crisis deepens

Angry protests in Barcelona as Catalan referendum crisis deepens

Barcelona (AFP) - Spain's prime minister called Wednesday on Catalan separatist leaders to end their "escalation" as several thousand people took to the streets of Barcelona to protest at Madrid's attempts to stop a banned referendum on independence.

"Stop this escalation of radicalism and disobedience once and for all," Mariano Rajoy said in a televised statement as protesters remained in the centre of the Mediterranean seaside city after a day-long demonstration that headed into the night.

"There is still time to avoid bigger problems."

Shouting "we will vote," independence supporters started their gathering on Wednesday morning after police detained 14 Catalan government officials, raising tensions as Madrid pulls out the stops to prevent regional separatist leaders...

Here's why you should pay attention to this weekend's German election - Washington Post


German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Aug. 18. (Odd Andersen/Agence France-Presse/Getty Images)

European elections countdown: In this part of our occasional series, we take a look at what is at stake in the upcoming German election.

If you're searching for the opposite of last year's loud, long and controversial American election, look no further than Germany.

On Sunday, voters there will head to the polls in a crucial yet strangely quiet election.

The two main contenders, conservative incumbent Angela Merkel and social democrat Martin Schulz, held only one TV debate, in which many of the key issues went undiscussed. And with the vote still days away, German parties are preparing to collaborate after the election rather than emphasizing their differences to sway the undecided.

Why should you care?

The campaign has been quiet, but the results will still probably be a watershed moment in...

'Bodies blown to bits': the depravity of Kim Jong-un - Toowoomba Chronicle

A defector has spoken on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s regime.

A defector has spoken on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s regime.

A North Korean defector has revealed she saw 11 musicians "blown to bits" by anti-aircraft guns in a terrifying execution ordered by maniacal dictator Kim Jong-un.

The Sun reports Hee Yeon Lim, 26, the daughter of a high-ranking soldier from Pyongyang, fled to South Korea last year and has told of the horrors she witnessed while part of the secretive Kim regime's inner circle.

Speaking with The Mirror, she described one occasion where she was pulled out of school by soldiers and forced to watch a group of musicians accused of making a pornographic video being slaughtered.

Hee Yeon said she and her classmates were taken to a stadium at the city's Military Academy where the hooded and gagged victims were tied to the end of anti-aircraft guns in front of some 10,000 spectators.

The escapee then recalled how the guns...

Let's Face It: Australia Could Vote “No” On Marriage Equality - Junkee

This is more than an unlikely hypothetical.

Australia is probably going to vote No to marriage equality.

Just hold the emotion you felt after you read that sentence. Now imagine how you’ll feel if you wake up on November 15 and read the headline: Australia Has Voted “No” To Marriage Equality.

I hope Yes wins, I really do. I’ve been working very, very hard for a Yes vote. It’s a vote that’s intentionally weighted against us. It’s a vote where our opponents are wilfully lying about what a vote represents. It’s a vote where men like Barnaby Joyce, a man who advocated for a plebiscite, condemns people for actively campaigning. It’s a vote where our rights are in the cross hairs and our opponents insist that they are being bullied.

It’s a vote that represents political failures, years and years of failures on both sides of politics. It’s a vote we shouldn’t have to go through — but we...

Australian woman Sophia Martini dies in scooter crash in Bali - NEWS.com.au

A YOUNG woman from Queensland has become the fourth Australian to die from a scooter accident in Bali this year after a horrific crash on Monday morning.

Sophia Martini, 27, was riding on the back of her boyfriend Steele Nugent’s scooter after midnight when it crashed in Kuta, the busiest region of the Indonesian island.

Ms Martini suffered horrific leg injuries from the crash and despite being rushed to Denpasaar Hospital, major blood loss caused her to die on arrival, Nine News reports.

The couple, who were in Bali to attend a friend’s wedding, were wearing helmets.

Mr Nugent, 28, was not badly injured in the crash and was immediately detained by local police for questioning.

The 28-year-old has since been released but has been told to stay in Bali until the investigation into the accident has been completed.
