    A teenager armed with a baseball bat who tried to stop the Melbourne car rampage says he's not a hero because he couldn't save the five people who died. Tevita Mahina, 17, was filmed running into the middle of the road outside Flinders Street Station as Dimitrious Gargasoulas, 26, drove screeching doughnuts around the busy intersection. Moments later, the crazed driver sped down Bourke Street mall mowing down dozens of pedestrians, killing five people and injuring 37 others. 'I didn't save anyone so I don't feel like a hero,' he told Daily Mail Australia after the video of his actions...

    RNS) The vitriol of the president’s supporters at a Trump rally has moved a Florida pastor to write a much-shared Facebook post about the mockery of religion he believed he witnessed. “I have been in places and experiences before where demonic activity was palpable,” wrote the Rev. Joel Tooley, lead pastor of Melbourne First Church of the Nazarene. The pastor said he felt the “power of the Holy Spirit of God” protecting him and his daughter as he sought to shield protesters from angry Trump fans. Tooley had brought his 11-year-old to the rally Saturday (Feb. 18) in Melbourne, he...

    An online movement of men is shrugging off the stereotype that 'cats are for girls' and flaunting their affinity for kitties, writes Hayley Gleeson. And they're giving others permission to embrace a gentler, more thoughtful kind of masculinity. Myles Loughran is a cat man. 'Cat man' as in, 'cat lady', but with a Y-chromosome. Put another way, Mr Loughran is a man who likes cats — as opposed to a man who likes dogs, say, or miniature pigs. "There's something about cats," the 29-year-old co-owner of Cat Cafe Melbourne tells ABC News. "I feel they can give you that real...

    Australian documentary hobbyist spontaneously visits Occupy Melbourne rally with videocamera, planning to make some casual interviews about their event. A long, eerie series of paranoid outbursts from the dirty but clearly priveleged Occupiers ensue: They want to grow the government big enough to control the lives of EVERYONE --except them. Anyone with a camera is a spy, "What is your name..? What you're doing isn't cool, I'll tell the cops, here, that you're making me feel bad..." Many of the Occupiers show the strange opinion that the cherished notion of RIGHTS is anything they like, non-rights are things they don't...
