tom mitchell: how much is too much?
`bucks' view tonight is that they weren't doing the damage. i would have thought they were in the first half, because it was 10 goals to four at quarter-time when he's had 15 or 16 disposals and we were six goals in front, so it's pretty ballsy to say he wasn't having an influence.`buckley later took to twitter to ensure he wasn’t issuing a message of disrespect towards mitchell.both clarkson and buckley agreed that scott pendlebury was best afield though, with the pies skipper receiving the full allotment of 10 coaches’ votes. mitchell still received five votes though, with both coaches having him in their top five players on the ground.in any event, not even a year later, mitchell and the hawks had the last laugh, as he notched a record 54 disposals in hawthorn’s opening-round win over collingwood.this time there was no debate about mitchell being best on ground, with clarkson and buckley both giving him top billing in their respective votes.since being traded from sydney at the end of 2016, mitchell’s ball-winning feats have been astonishing. last year he broke the record for most disposals in a home-and-away season (787), and he is on track to come very close to bettering that mark in 2018.in a poor season for the hawks, mitchell still polled 25 brownlow votes last year and comfortably took out the peter crimmins medal as the club’s best and fairest.with hawthorn returning to finals contention this year, mitchell has emerged as a short-priced brownlow fav...

ufc champion whittaker turns to coaching during injury lay-off
`in my opinion, the champion should fight the top contender. gastelum's up there somewhere, but he's not the top one,`  whittaker said, before adding that he was still happy to take the fight.`i don't pick and choose. i've never really had an qualms about who i fight next.`despite being middleweights, whittaker and gastelum will be lending their experience to eight female featherweight fighters and eight male heavyweight fighters.whittaker previously labelled being stuck in the house where the contenders live together while training and fighting  as a `terrible experience` but, as a coach, he can come and go as he pleases, and he  has brought his family to las vegas this time around.but what tips can the champion offer these potential stars?`i'm not trying to change them or teach them how to fight, they know how to do that. it's what got them there. i'm more of a support role, just trying to get them through the house and help them out.`it's more about just coping with the house and the environment they're in ... so when fight night comes about, they're feeling good, they're not stressed.`among the prospects is 28-year-old ben sosoli, an ex-rugby player who will fly the flag for  both anzac nations after saying there's `no way` he could choose between australia and new zealand after being born in sydney before crossing the ditch.chance of a lifetime: ben sosoli.photo: instagram / @ben.sosoli`i grew up in new zealand. everyone wants to be on the al...

cigarettes smuggled into australia in children's toys: police
the 35-year-old man is facing up to ten years' imprisonment for tobacco smuggling, and up to five on charges relating to unpaid import duties.workers at sydney international mail gateway identified numerous consignments of illegal cigarettes imported from china, leading border force to begin an investigation.abf investigations commander graeme grosse said the operation seized 350,000 illicit cigarettes and 1,200 kg of tobacco - to the value of $1.5 million in unpaid import tax.“we expect that figure to increase as the investigation continues,” commander grosse said.“the abf is focussed on disrupting the illicit tobacco market and this operation shows we have the ability to not only detect these imports at the border, but also identify those involved and take action against them.”border force says the illicit tobacco market in australia is worth about $600 million a year in evaded revenue.a report from kpmg last year found that the australian government was losing $1.6 billion annually to taxes not paid on cigarettes and tobacco illegally imported into the country.last september, two bondi junction tobacconists copped a record $72,000 fine for selling cigarettes in packages without the requisite health warnings.the man and woman at free choice tobacconist were each found guilty of 36 tobacco-related offences, with a  $1000 fine per count.they are also banned from selling cigarettes until next month.in a statement at the time, australasian association of convenience s...

'follow in ireland's footsteps': labor mps show support for abortion reform
`this means that those queenslanders who quite rightly want to see abortion laws reformed really do need to maintain the momentum, the conversation and the persuasion.`i'm very passionate about abortion law reform because, fundamentally, it is the last area of discrimination against women.`to think that in 2018 women can't access an abortion unless they're mentally incapable of having a baby is ridiculous.`hannah whittle, 27, was one of the speakers at the rally. she had an abortion in may last year.`i touched on two things from my experience,` she said.`i was concerned by how many times the nurse asked whether i wanted to go through with it (the abortion) at the clinic, but i understand that is due to legal restrictions.`i also needed to state that i was mentally incapable of having a baby at the time, you shouldn't need to give a reason.`ms whittle said she was overwhelmed by the support on saturday and was particularly happy to see a strong turnout from men.`as a privileged white woman, i have access to (abortion) services, but i wanted the crowd to think about what the laws do to the most vulnerable in the community,` she said.`particularly women fleeing domestic violence, those who can't afford it, women of colour and women in our rural and remote communities.`labor mps showing their support: mark bailey (second from right), di farmer (third from right), stirling hinchliffe (fourth from right), yvette d'ath (fifth from right), shannon fentiman (sixth ...

anz bank's ceo shayne elliott has apologised to a former employee who was interrogated by the bank's legal team in new york about her sexual history, describing the questioning as `wrong and not acceptable`.mr elliott took to social media on saturday in a series of tweets following calls for him to respond to the incident, after various customers said they were considering changing to other banks.`i apologise. this is wrong & not acceptable. we were not aware of our external ny lawyers [sic] strategy & should have been. we have instructed them that this is not to be used during trial & and [sic] i will apologise to the complainant personally,` he wrote on saturday.mr elliott's apologies followed revelations that the bank's legal representatives forced a former employee to recount details of her sexual assault which took place when she was at college years earlier, and state whether she had any sexually transmitted diseases.the questioning, which occurred during a deposition a year ago, was in relation to the former senior anz trader's claim that she experienced sexual and racial harassment while working at anz bank in new york.on saturday mr elliott acknowledged that the line of questioning was done by people `acting in his interests`, and did not contest suggestions by a commenter on social media that the questioning amounted to `emotional abuse` or `infliction of trauma`.

last of his tribe? brazil releases video of lonely man of the amazon
`lots of people are seeking out [this video]. they want to know what is he like, how can he be seen, is he still alive,` algayer said in a phone interview. `i think this ends up helping to protect the territory.`brazil is home to several tribes whose lands are increasingly under threat as the scramble for the resources of the amazon intensifies.although sometimes described as `uncontacted`, many have been victims of violent contact with pastoralists and have lost family members to conflict over lands. others, like the last man in the video, have been contacted and repeatedly by funai, even if just to be left alone.last year, 71 people were killed in such conflicts over land, the most since 2003, according to the pastoral land commission, which tracks the violence.funai says the man in the video is a survivor of attacks by farmers that killed the rest of his group in 1995. it has been monitoring the man since 1996, when it found him already living alone in the forest in northern state of rondonia.the team that tracks him calls him `the indian of the hole` because of an unusual hole that he dug, algayer said.`we don't know who he belongs to,` said algayer, adding the man appears to be in good health and between 55 and 60.the foundation's policy is to allow such people to live their lives in isolation, but members of the foundation have made 57 trips to monitor him as they believed him at risk. they have taken action to protect the area about 40 times.`we always kn...

radley urged to maintain the rage as round two with taupau looms
it's a shame because this season is the first year there is not a standout newcomer on the scene.under nrl eligibility rules, rookies cannot have played four games or more in the previous season, nor incurred two separate suspensions in the one season. radley played three games for the bondi boys last season.brisbane's goal-kicking winger and fullback jamayne isaako loomed as his main threat for the rookie prize. he is seen as the long-term no.1 at red hill and inked a new deal this week.canterbury's rhyse martin, cronulla pair jesse ramien and sione katoa, titans playmaker alexander brimson, penrith prop jack hetherington and christian crichton, along with south sydney's adam doueihi have all been solid without being outstanding.last year nick cotric beat dylan edwards and jayden brailey for the rookie trophy, while ash taylor pipped nathan cleary and suliasi vunivalu in a vintage 2016 field.radley started the year as a back-up hooker to jake friend, but has since switched to his preferred back row.despite potentially doing himself out of the honour, a couple of roosters greats hope radley maintains his aggression in the run home to the finals.smiling assassin: victor radley's impact on the field belies his laid-back approach of it.photo: nrl photosroosters 2010 premiership-winning captain braith anasta told fairfax media radley would have taken out the rookie gong had he kept a clean rap sheet.`he's definitely the best out of that group,'' anasta said.`he's a ...

mactiernan booed as joyce says live export opponents 'zealots'
barnaby joyce has been given a rock star reception at a crisis meeting of more than 1000 farmers in a wa country town where the former federal agriculture minister labelled opponents of live sheep exports `zealots`.two of three major exporters are now not trading with the middle east during its sweltering summer, which peaks in august, after 2400 sheep last year died from heat stress on the emanuel exports-chartered awassi express.livestock shipping services voluntarily suspended its northern hemisphere sheep business while emanuel had its licence suspended.mr joyce said those who wanted to shut down the sector were `zealots` but the industry could fight back and win, citing the resumption of the cattle trade to indonesia and nsw's abandoned proposal to ban greyhound racing.barnaby joyce addresses the crowd.photo: aap`what we're up against is like a religion, it's zealotry and they're not going to stop at just the closure of the live sheep industry,` he told the approving crowd.

bathurst hopes crown series can reach $1 million mark
bathurst harness racing club wants to begin building the foundation for a $1 million gold crown carnival to lure horses across the tasman after a significant cash injection for their signature series.just a couple of days after trumpeting a $750,000 carnival featuring an upgraded gold chalice and gold bracelet in 2019, chief executive danny dwyer is prepared to push even harder in the future to ensure total stakes reach the magical seven figures.photo: `that's something the club could set as a goal for the future,` dwyer said. `that increase of getting it to $750,000 and the positivity around that as far as the industry is concerned has been enormous.`what would we have to do to get it to $1 million? there could be another $50,000 spent on each of the finals to get it to $950,000 and you're going to start getting some serious horses to race, possibly from new zealand. it will just grow the profile of the races and the club as well.`harness racing nsw subsidies has helped lift next year's series to record prizemoney levels, but it's the elevation of the chalice and bracelet for the three-year-olds to group 1 status which has really excited.

'he's got it again', was the cry and the spectators were on their feet in a twinkling. messenger performed amazing things. he bewildered his rivals and fooled his teammates. yes, i place dally on a pinnacle.`memories: dally messenger with a portrait of himself in 1950.photo: photographicmessenger and brown are on the shortlist of 10 from which one or two immortals will be announced on august 1.brown was not selected in rugby league’s team of the century. the two centres chosen were mal meninga and reg gasnier. meninga is also on the immortals shortlist, while gasnier is already an immortal.messenger was chosen on the team of the century bench.records still stand: dave brown is among the 10 players shortlisted to become an immortal.photo: photographicwhen rugby league week magazine announced the original four immortals (clive churchill, john raper, bob fulton and gasnier), the criterion was t...

weekend washup: 'nothing to see here' as mps in foreign allegiance crosshairs
he said no one was seriously questioning the allegiance of the state's mps and he was pretty sure there were no russian spies sitting in parliament.unfortunately – or perhaps luckily – for mr mcgowan, the constitutional test has nothing to do with whether an mp is an active foreign agent.it's about whether they have made any `acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence` to a foreign power.that's a much lower threshold, one that might be easily crossed for one of the handful of our state mps who are toting foreign passports, including a couple of ministers.of course, the government says it has legal advice that none of this is a problem. but, like all legal advice, it's speculative until it's in front of a justice of the supeme court.it doesn't help the government convince a skeptical public that attorney general john quigley has declined to release the advice.renewed international concern over wa rail data network contractorspeaking of the skeptical public, the controversy over a $136 million contact awarded to chinese telecommunications giant huawei to build a radio and data network for perth's rail system continues to raise questions.days after watoday revealed transport minister rita saffioti told the rail industry the network of about 80 data towers to be built along the city's rail corridors would `provide a platform for a future improved train control system` and `help facilitate automatic train control in the future`, huawei made headlines...
