    Terrified neighbours phoned the police after hearing a woman screaming hysterically and a man yelling: “I’m going to kill you”. But when officers arrived at the address they discovered the flat's sole occupant had been trying to catch a SPIDER . The shamefaced man admitted he had been shouting death threats at the arachnid and had been the person behind the high pitched screaming. According to New South Wales police in Australia, they received multiple calls about the sound of crashing furniture and a man screaming: “I’m going to kill you, you're dead! Die Die!!”.

    Where are all the secular liberals in the Muslim world? I've lost count of how many times I've heard this question. The answer is both unsurprising and heartbreaking. In Muslim-majority countries, they are often being lashed and imprisoned for blogging, hacked to death in open daylight, or sentenced to death for writing poetry. Here in the West, they are often being disowned from their families, ostracized from their communities, and even murdered by their own families in "honor killings." As for those who choose to leave the religion altogether, the outcome is even more sinister. There are thirteen countries, all...

  • [Australian] Army Chaplains to Remove 'Conquer' from 102-Yr-Old Motto; It's Offensive to Muslims

    The Australian Army is removing the motto "In this sign conquer" from the 102-year-old hat badges of army chaplains because it is offensive to Muslims. The move comes after an imam approved by the Grand Mufti was appointed to join the Religious Advisory Committee to the Services in June. Australian Army chaplains have had the motto on their hat badges since 1913. A Defence spokeswoman last night denied the motto was being changed because it was associated with the Crusades, when Christian armies fought Muslims in the Holy Land during the Middle Ages. "The motto of the Australian Army Chaplains...

    Congressional Democrats are trying to build support for an effort to bar gun purchases by terror suspects, hoping to take advantage of the same public anxieties about security that gave Republicans a ringing House victory. The Democratic push seems likely to fall victim to opposition from the National Rifle Association and congressional gun-rights backers, chiefly Republicans, who have smothered firearms curbs for years. If the Republicans who control Congress block votes on the proposal, Democrats hope to profit politically by winning sympathy from angry voters. ...

    The largest collection of early American skulls ever studied is lending credence to a controversial theory that two distinct populations of humans--rather than one--colonized the New World. If true, the findings indicate that people who shared an ancestry with modern day Australians and Melanesians may have settled on the continents somewhat earlier than immigrants from northeast Asia. Not so long ago, the origins of the first Americans seemed fairly certain: Beginning about 12,000 years ago, people from northeast Asia entered North America via the Bering landbridge in several waves of immigration. These ancestors of present-day Native Americans spread out to...

    When I was in Washington recently, I had a very funny conversation with Matthew Harries over dinner. It seems there is a proposal for Australia to seek nuclear-weapons state status under the NPT on rather weak claim that the UK had conducted nuclear tests down under in the 1950s. I was delighted when Matt and Hassan Elbahtimy offered to write up a fine riposte to this strange idea. Also, I left you a little easter egg at the bottom. Australia, like many other countries during and after the Cold War, considered developing nuclear weapons but never fully pursued its own...

    Recently, Singapore celebrated 50 years of nationhood. The success of this remarkable country is a vivid exemplar of the proposition that we still live in a world of nation-states. Singapore's birth in August 1965 was traumatic. It was a tiny country with no natural resources, a land area of less than 1,000 square kilometers, and a population of only 1.9 million. Effectively, it had been ejected from the Federation of Malaysia because the pro-Malay policies of the Federation discriminated against the ethnic Chinese who constituted the bulk of Singapore's population.

He said they were the largest known rats to have ever existed and acknowledged some people thought they sounded terrifying. "Most people seem to think that," Dr Louys said.

    In modern society dogs are often referred to as "man's best friend" but according to an archaeological review early Aboriginal society sported a similar relationship between women and dingoes (Canis lupus dingo). The study by UWA and ANU suggests people formed close bonds with dingoes soon after the dogs' arrival on the mainland roughly 4000 years ago, with the dogs enabling women to contribute more hunted food. UWA archaeologist Jane Balme, who led the research, says it is thought the first dingoes arrived on watercraft with people from South East Asia. "What they're doing on the boat is not clear...

(Barack Obama made the same reference last year, by the way, though it never went anywhere.) As AP noted, this wasn’t a gun buy back program such as many states and municipalities have offered. It was mandatory confiscation with a modest cash reimbursement to soften the blow. Before moving on to the latest...

They joined the Hillsong Church, did the Discovering Christianity course together and were baptised together as Christians but a tribunal has ruled neither brother is a genuine follower of the faith. They claimed to fear persecution if they returned to Egypt based on their conversion to Christianity but the former Refugee Review Tribunal found they had contrived their embrace of the new religion based on the timing of their applications for protection visas.

    Japan has offered to build Australia a larger version of its ultra- stealthy 4000-tonne Soryu, or Blue Dragon, submarine to dramatically increase its range. The enhanced Soryu diesel-electric submarine, which could be built in Australia, would be powered by a new and safer generation of highly efficient lithium ion batteries developed by Japanese engineers. The 88m long Soryu would be extended with the addition of a new hull section 6-8m long, which would be placed behind the submarines fin, The Australian was told in a briefing yesterday. Japan, which is one of three contenders bidding to build Australias submarines, has...

    A week ago, we noted thatnegating Nicolle Wallace's notion that the woman who aided the New York prison break shouldn't do any time herselfWillie Geist observed "you can't help convicted murderers escape from jail." An NB reader remarked: "I get the sense that Willie Geist is a good guy trapped inside the leftwing matrix." Far be it from us to cause workplace problems for Willie by praising him too much, but Geist was at it again on today's Morning Joe, this time making some common sense remarks on gun control. After Eugene Robinson praised Australia's "very serious" gun control laws,...

    COULD Tony Abbott make a comeback? The Abbott-haters and the feral army of Twitter addicts who are so delighting in his downfall will pour their usual bile-laden scorn on such a suggestion, but they clearly dont know their history. Political precedent tells us that Abbott returning to the leadership of the Liberal Party is not only possible, but worth punting a few bob on. Forget Abbotts current unpopularity, because the public soon will. John Howard was publicly derided after he lost the 1987 election to the charismatic Bob Hawke, so much so that the Bulletin magazine, the trendy political rag...

    Once again the corporatocracy wins as the so-called "Trojan horse" Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized. As WSJ reports, the U.S., Japan and 10 countries around the Pacific reached a historic accord Monday to lower trade barriers to goods and services and set commercial rules of the road for two-fifths of the global economy, officials said. For the U.S., the TPP (reportedly) opens agricultural markets in Japan and Canada, tightens intellectual property rules to benefit drug and technology companies, and establishes a tightknit economic bloc to challenge Chinas influence in the region (likely forcing their hand into separate...

    When President Obama spoke in reaction to the heinous October 1 attack on Umpqua Community College, he went beyond his usual calls for more gun control and suggested instead that America consider following the path blazed by Australia and Great Britain. In the mid-1990s Australia and Great Britain both instituted what were virtually complete bans on firearm possession.Obama referenced the bans thus: We know that other countries, in response to one mass shooting, have been able to craft laws that almost eliminate mass shootings. Friends of ours, allies of ours Great Britain, Australia, countries like ours. So we know...
