記事本文 The Daily telegraph March 31, 2011 12:00AM Knee-deep danger - juvenile great white sharks lurk metres from beach at Hawks Nest THIS is not a scene from Jaws, this is Hawks Nest. Lurking in the shallows, just metres from where two little boys played happily on the sand, was the ocean's most feared predator. These photographs show how frighteningly close the maneater came to the shoreline at Bennetts beach, Hawks Nest, a popular tourist destination and favoured beach for thousands of people. The incredible photos, which were taken a few weeks ago, were snapped on the same stretch of beach where wakeboarder Lisa Mondy was mauled by a great white on March 16. Hawks Nest Surf Life Saving Club president Stephen Howell said sightings were common at this time of year because of the schools of bait fish and salmon in the area.
US president Barack Obama made a speech about the safety of energy supply at George town University in Washington on the 30 th.
“ Nuclear energy makes up a fifth of total electricity supply of the US. Nuclear can produce power without increasing the amount of CO2” He said、 and reaffirmed that he will stick with his nuclear development policy.
There are great concerns about nuclear safety within the United states since the accident at Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan occurred. However Mr Obama said “ I will guarantee the safety of the nuclear plants. The investigation report and the knowledges learned from the lessons will be applied to develop next generation nuclear plant’s design and development”
He also referred to the soaring oil price that caused by the middle east instability “ The US will reduce 1/3 of the total oil imports over next 10 years.” This means that the US oil imports will be reduced by 1/3 by 2025.
Coments: Australia’s Johnny Howard also supports nuclear energy.
From Herald sun news articles Oct17 2006 Mr Howard said nuclear power was necessary to combat global warming and he could not understand Labor's decision to rule it out. "It is part of the solution," he said. "I'm not saying it's the only solution. "I just think that if we're serious about having a debate about global warming, particularly as the holder of some of the largest uranium reserves in the world, we have got to be willing to consider the nuclear option."
His opinion has not changed after the Fukushima nuclear crisis. I think his opinion make a sense.

記事原文 Dutch girl, 12, gives birth on school trip News core March 31, 2011 A 12-YEAR-OLD Dutch girl gave birth while on a school trip, sparking a police search yesterday for the father of the child. The girl, from Groningen, 183km north-east of Amsterdam, complained of stomach pains on March 22, during a day out with classmates. Teachers realised the girl was in labour and called an ambulance. Ambulance officers rushed to the scene, and the 12-year-old delivered a healthy baby girl in a nearby building. The young mother was then taken to the hospital but has refused to name the father. Family members said that the schoolgirl's father previously sexually abused another older daughter and served two years in jail for the sex crime, according to the Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. The girl was living with her father and brother after he won custody following a divorce from their mother, who was originally from Suriname, a former Dutch colony in South America. Dutch police said in a statement yesterday: "The girl got pregnant when she was 11, which in itself means there has been a criminal offence. Article 244 of the Penal Code, sex with a minor under 12, is punishable. In addition, there are now [circumstances] reported by the Child Protection Board. Taking these two circumstances, the police is now investigating who the father [of this baby] is." The girl was due to go into foster care once she was released from the hospital.

記事原文 NewsCore March 30, 2011 1:49PM SINGAPORE'S Changi Airport is air passengers' favourite travel hub, according to a confidential report cited by The Times in London. Incheon Airport in Seoul, South Korea, came second - followed by Hong Kong International, Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates, and Beijing Capital International, China. Also among the top rated were Pu Deng Shanghai, China, in sixth place, Gimpo International in Seoul in seventh place, Jackson Mississippi, US, in eighth place, Humberside Airport in the UK in ninth place and Kuala Lumpur International in tenth place. The airport quality data, known as ASQs, are compiled by the trade body Airports Council International and are rarely made public. The international table of the world's 146 principal airports tells the aviation industry how passengers really feel, according to The Times. Some of the major European airports were close to the bottom of the table. London's Heathrow - the world's fourth busiest airport - was in 99th place, with passengers complaining of long security queues and poor "ambience". Amsterdam Schiphol in Holland was 93rd on the list, Ireland's Dublin Airport 98th, Frankfurt Airport in Germany 126th and Paris Charles de Gaulle five from the bottom at 137th. The Times did not say which airport was 146th on the list.
コメント オーストラリアでのうのうとしている私が、今の日本の原発についてコメントするのは気が引けるが、あえて言わせてもらうと― 日本は原発を放棄すべきではないと思う。 「CO2削減に原子力発電以上に効力を発揮するものはない」 と豪気候変動担当の、ロス ガーノ 教授も言っている…。 今巷では原発の危険性が議論されているが、世界中の原発を止めてしまっては、地球はCO2で潰されてしまう。 日本はむしろ、巨大地震、サイクロン、テロ攻撃にも耐えうる原発を開発し、その技術を世界に輸出すべきである。 それと同時に、太陽光、風力、潮力、地熱等、の開発において世界をリードし日本の主要輸出産業とできれば理想的。 と―口で言うのは簡単だが実際はそんなに上手くいかないだろう。 それどころか上の記事を読む限り、環境技術においても中国、ドイツの後塵を拝しそうである。 今回の大震災、人々は被害者である日本に同情はしているが、トヨタの大規模リコールに次いで、原発の不手際（私は良くやっていると涙溢の思いであるが、メディアは日本政府、東電に批判的）により、MADE IN JAPAN の信頼はさらに失墜している―と感じる。
記事原文 China 1st, Aust 12th in clean energy Tuesday, March 29, 2011 China leads the world in green energy, Germany has outpaced the US as the number two player, while Italy is fourth and Australia is 12th, a study said. The survey by the Pew Charitable Trusts found strong growth on a global scale for solar, wind and other renewable energy, although one major exception was Britain, which saw a sharp decline after a new government took charge. China, which a year earlier topped the United States as the green leader, saw no stop to its growth. Clean energy investment reached $US54.4 billion in 2010, up 39 per cent from the previous year, the Pew report said. The study estimated that China -- which is fighting severe pollution and its dubious distinction as the top producer of carbon emissions blamed for climate change -- now produces nearly half of the world's wind and solar modules. Germany's clean energy investment doubled to $US41.2 billion, bringing the country to second place, the study said. Germany ramped up both solar and wind power. Despite slipping to third, the United States still enjoyed 51 per cent growth in clean energy investment, the study said. The US plays a leading role in innovation and capital for green energy, but lags behind in manufacturing, the study said. But Britain witnessed a 70 per cent decline in clean energy investment, slipping out of the top 10, as businesses hesitated at offshore wind projects after Prime Minister David Cameron took over with a mission to trim spending.
Indonesia and South Korea also saw declines in clean energy investment, although the study's authors said it was possible the nations would rebound due to their policy directions.
In Japan, whose clean energy industry consists almost exclusively of solar, investment rose a modest 10 per cent but Cuttino predicted future growth as the world's third largest economy has set ambitious goals over the next decade. The research was conducted before Japan's devastating March 11 earthquake, which set off a crisis at a nuclear plant that has brought new scrutiny worldwide to atomic energy. The US experienced growth in clean energy even though efforts led by President Barack Obama's Democratic Party to mandate cuts in carbon emissions died last year in Congress.

記事原文 28/03/2011 Price rises pushing more Aussies below poverty line, warns Australian Council of Social Services
AUSTRALIA fared better than other nations during the financial crisis but new data suggests more families are struggling to make ends meet. The latest snapshot of the social sector shows the number of Australians being turned away from emergency relief, disability, homeless and youth welfare services is on the rise. More than half the 745 charities and services surveyed for the snapshot say they can't cope with the load. Demand for emergency relief, including food, finance and shelter, almost doubled in 2009-10 from the previous financial year, with services turning away an average of 100 people. "We are seeing enormous strain on community welfare groups who are struggling to meet the growing demand, made worse by the recent flood disasters," she said in a statement. The number of Australians living in poverty, estimated at 2.2 million, will continue to creep up as families buckle under cost of living pressures, Dr Goldie says. "The cost of essential items and services like food, rent, energy, health, education, clothing and transport costs continue to go up." The council would use its national conference in Melbourne this week to nut out a policy approach to "reverse the current trend of growing inequality" threatening Australia.

原文 シーシェパード ホームページより抜粋 Thursday, March 24, 2011 Sea Shepherd's Efforts Provide Assistance to Earthquake Victims in Japan Sea Shepherd Conservation Society has contributed humanitarian aid to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan in a rather ironic and indirect way. Due to the interventions of Sea Shepherd against the illegal Japanese whaling operations in the Southern Ocean, Sea Shepherd forced the retreat of the Japanese whaling fleet a month earlier than their whaling season was to end. Due to the whalers’ early retreat, the Japanese Nisshin Maru factory ship arrived in Tokyo Bay a month earlier than normal on March 21, 2011. Japanese authorities immediately commandeered the ship to deliver aid supplies to northern Japan. The Nisshin Maru will be taking kerosene, charcoal, instant noodles, rice, and other supplies to the northern coastal communities hit hardest by the tsunami. Bringing aid and comfort to the victims of this disaster is a far more positive role for the Nisshin Maru than slaughtering whales in the Southern Ocean, which is where the fleet still would have been if not for Sea Shepherd shutting down their unlawful activities in mid-February. Sea Shepherd believes that the Nisshin Maru should be permanently converted into a humanitarian aid vessel. Sea Shepherd is happy that in this small way, they were able to make it possible for the Nisshin Maru to bring aid supplies to the Japanese people whose lives have been so tragically interrupted by these recent disasters.
記事原文 25/03/2011 The Australian Laundry staff can earn more than $420k a year on offshore construction projects LAUNDRY hands and cooks employed on offshore construction projects will potentially earn more than $420,000 a year, according to employers who claim the extraordinary rates will have a flow-on impact on mainland resources projects. New analysis by the Australian Mines and Metals Association finds the most recent wage agreement registered for offshore construction workers contains maximum annual pay packages for a four-week-on, two-week-off rostered employee of $423,000 for a laundry hand; $445,000 for a cook; $450,000 for a tradesperson; and $498,000 for a barge welder, If the employee works a three-week-on, three-week-off roster for a year, the AMMA said, the maximum remuneration was $317,734 for a laundry hand; $334,408 for a cook; $337,484 for a tradesperson; and $373,701 for a barge welder. Steve Knott, the association's chief executive, said the pay rates were a "worrying precedent", particularly for Queensland employers competing for a dearth of skilled workers. "There is a very real risk to resource employers. As offshore rates and allowances flow across to the onshore construction sector, many projects will face the risk of significant wage blowouts," Mr Knott said. "I think most fair-minded people would start to think something is fundamentally wrong when a barge welder earns more than the Prime Minister, whose salary is $350,000.
記事原文 Who has the biggest penis? According to this map, he isn't Australian THE internet is full of useful information, much of it unverified but eyebrow-raising. And latest addition to this genre is a table of the average penis size by country. The data, which says it is a mix of stated and undefined sources, has some ego-shattering information for Australian men if it is to be believed. Australia comes in 94th on the list, with a "measured" average penis size of 13.2cm. The information is attributed to "Australia's national agency for health and welfare". Number one on the list is the Congo, with an average "self-reported" penis size of 18cm. Rounding out the top five are Ecuador at 17.5cm (measured), Ghana at 17.3 cm (self-reported), Colombia at 17cm (measured) and Venezuela at 17cm (measured). 世界巨根分布図 緑最長、赤最短 勃起時のペニスサイズ 人種別（測定平均） ペニスサイズ表 国別

記事原文 24/03/2011 Clijsters withdraws from Japan tennis event TOKYO (AFP) – Former world number one Kim Clijsters has withdrawn from the Pan Pacific Open to be held in Tokyo in September over the ongoing nuclear emergency at an atomic plant. Clijsters said she hoped to play in Japan "when it's possible", after earlier tweeting concerns over radiation from the Fukushima plant which was damaged in the massive March 11 earthquake and tsunami. "I always have felt that I have a close connection to Japan. I have really good memories of playing doubles with Ai Sugiyama in Japan," the 27-year-old world number two said in a message to organisers. "I wish everybody a lot of courage, a lot of strength and I look forward to coming back to Tokyo when it's possible."

Pictures taken from inside the plant reveal for the first time the treacherous conditions the brave men are working under as they battle to cool overheating reactors. Wearing protective bodysuits and under lamplight, the men race to fix the plant, knowing the high exposure to radiation may kill them. Five workers have already reportedly died and 15 are injured. Now an estimated 1000 people are desperately battling to reconnect cables and test equipment, and cooling the reactor buildings No.3 and No.4.
記事原文 NZ not halting Japanese food imports Thursday, March 24, 2011 NZ is not following the US and Australia in ordering a halt to Japanese food imports. New Zealand is not following the United States and Australia in ordering a halt to Japanese food imports, such as sauces and seaweed, amid rising radiation concerns, the Food and Safety Authority says. Authority officials met this morning and decided there was not going to be any change in New Zealand's position on Japanese food imports, FSA spokesman David Crowe told NZPA. 'We haven't had any clarification from Australia yet as to what prompted them to go to the level of halting imports of Japanese food products over there. 'Our position is we are still monitoring the situation and, based on the information that is available today, we have not identified any food import from Japan that would cause us any alarm.' The authority was in constant contact with counterparts in other countries over irradiated food products although New Zealand did not import as much from Japan as did the US, Australia and Europe, Mr Crowe said. Radiation leaks at the Fukushima nuclear power plant caused by a tsunami triggered by the March 11 earthquake had contaminated food products such as milk and vegetables, and high levels of radioactive iodine and caesium were also measured close to water discharge points at the Fukushima plant. The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service yesterday implemented a holding order on all foods from the Fukushima, Gunma, Ibaraki and Tochigi prefectures.
Their major production is in milk, milk products, fresh fruit and vegetables, and both fresh and frozen seaweed and seafood. Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) said the holding order was only a precaution, given Australia did not import any milk or fresh food from Japan. The risk of irradiated food arriving from Japan was negligible. Australia's main imports are sauces and seaweed products. The move is in line with other countries including the United States, which restricted some dairy and vegetable imports earlier yesterday. Tests have revealed vastly elevated levels of radioactive iodine and caesium. But Australians have been given the go-ahead to buy Japanese foods currently on the shelves, given they were imported before the earthquake and tsunami.

Fortescue Metal Group's founder Andrew `Twiggy' Forrest has topped the annual BRW Executive Rich List. Fortescue Metal Group's founder Andrew Twiggy' Forrest has been propelled to the top of a national executive rich list, thanks to China's insatiable appetite for Australian iron ore Mr Forrest is the nation's wealthiest executive with shareholdings valued at $6.23 billion, up from $4.79 billion last year, according to BRW magazine. The annual BRW Executive Rich List names the 200 richest executive directors and senior managers of Australia's 500 biggest publicly listed companies. It is based on ordinary shares shareholdings in the companies they manage. Fortescue's chief executive traded places with last year's number one, media mogul Rupert Murdoch. The News Corporation chief executive's shareholdings were $5.68 billion, down from $5.96 billion previously. The wealth of the 200 executives on the list has increased by nearly 75 per cent.

Novak Djokovic has defeated World No.1 Rafael Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-2 to claim the Indian Wells Masters title. Photo: Australian News Channel Pty Ltd Monday, March 21, 2011 - 2:51 PM Source: BigPond Sport Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic fought back to beat world No.1 Rafael Nadal 4-6 6-3 6-2 in the final to claim the Indian Wells Masters title on Sunday. The victory was Djokovic's 23rd straight match win and continued his 18-0 undefeated run in 2011, adding his third title of the year following his victories in Melbourne and Dubai. The Serbian is set to move to No.2 in the world rankings this week following his defeat of current No.2 Roger Federer in the semi-finals. It is Djokovic's sixth Masters series title. The 23-year-old has looked invincible this season and Sunday's victory in the California desert underlined his dominance. Djokovic fired four aces, two to hold serve in the third set, in the two-hour, 25-minute match to capture his second Indian Wells crown. Djokovic took the second set in dramatic style, winning a marathon ninth game on the sixth set point after Nadal had saved five. The game, which lasted over 10 minutes, ended when Nadal hit a backhand wide in front of a near-capacity crowd of about 15,000. Nadal hit another sliding forehand into the net on match point, sparking a celebration from Djokovic, who clenched both fists, threw his head back and screamed at the top of his lungs. 'I lost today, but I lost to one of the greatest,' Nadal said. Djokovic broke Nadal in the first game of the third set and cruised to victory from there. He hammered aces on the final points to hold serve in the fourth and sixth games. Djokovic has compiled an incredible 18-match win streak this season and is 20-0 dating to the Davis Cup final in December where he won two singles matches. Besides winning the Australian Open, he captured his 20th career title last month in Dubai. Two-time Indian Wells winner Nadal was on a blistering pace of his own as he came into the final having dropped just one set in the tournament. Sunday's loss leaves the world No.1 without an ATP title this season. His last victory came in Tokyo in October.

記事原文 Duck protester shot Sunday Herald Sun March 19, 2011 A PROTESTER has been shot in the face just hours after the opening of the controversial duck hunting season this morning. Protester Julia Symons of Melburne suffered pellet injuries to her face, teeth and hand in a accidental shooting at Lake Buloke, 12km east of Donald in Victoria's west. Witnesses say Ms Symons, 43, was waist-deep in water when she was shot by the hunter, believed to be aiming at a low-flying bird. Ms Symons was conscious when she was carried from the water by fellow protesters of a duck rescue group. They said she still had pellets lodged in her face, and one of her teeth had been shot out. She was taken to Horsham Hosptial where she is in a stable condition. Police have seized the gun and are investigating. “The woman, who is from St Kilda, had been protesting about the duck hunt," a police spokeswoman said. “It appears she was accidently shot by a 14-year-old boy, who had been duck hunting with his uncle." Protesters were at the lake to voice their anger at the 2011 hunting season which will see each hunter permitted to kill 10 birds per day. Today is the first day of the season, which will run until June 13. Shooters as young as 12 are permitted to hunt ducks with valid game hunting licences. 撃たれたおばさん

記事抜粋 18/03/2011 A group of around 250-300 detainees on Christmas Island ran amok, hurling bricks and lighting fires late Thursday and forcing the Australian Federal Police to intervene, the Department of Immigration said. The latest violence followed days of unrest at the facility, which houses some 1,800 boat people awaiting the lengthy processing of their applications to stay in the country. More than 6,500 refugees -- mostly from Iraq, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka -- arrived in Australia last year on boats from Indonesia, crowding centres to capacity.
オージーの声 19/03/2011 COURIER MAIL ASYLUM seekers are rioting on Christmas Island. These are people who have come here illegally and are being housed and fed at taxpayer expense. They are reported to have destroyed a number of sleeping quarters in the violent outbreak. I suppose they will now protest at their lack of sleeping quarters. I heard on the news that Christmas Island shire president Gordon Thompson says he has been told at least 500 people will be moved out of the centre in the next fortnight. Does this mean that these people are to be housed on the mainland, where, if they escape again, they will be able to continue their violent ways among the legal citizens of the country? I am sick and tired of the endless waste of public funds - our hard-earned tax dollars - being spent on these illegal immigrants. It is time to put a stop to the influx of these so-called asylum seekers and turn their boats around. That is the only way they will stop coming. David Kendall, Stafford Heights

"I heard that he volunteered even though he will be retiring in just half a year and my eyes are filling up with tears," she said. "At home, he doesn't seem like someone who could handle big jobs. But today, I was really proud of him. I pray for his safe return." Another loved one says in an email: "My father is still working at the plant. He says he's accepted his fate, much like a death sentence." Prime Minister Naota Kan told the volunteers: "You are the only ones who can resolve a crisis. Retreat is unthinkable." In shifts of 50, they are working in total darkness using flashlights or helmets with lamps on them. Wearing head-to-toe protective gear and breathing through oxygen tanks as radiation reaches potentially lethal levels and temperatures soar, they crawl through dark mazes of pipes to make an adjustment on a valve, to read a gauge. Two workers are missing after the four explosions and fires at the plant since Friday. One worker who was opening a valve to let out a build-up of steam was taken to hospital complaining of nausea and exhaustion after being exposed to 10 minutes of radiation. Another 23 have been injured and 19, plus an unknown number of firemen, have been exposed to lower levels of radiation. Plant operator the Tokyo Electric Power Company has said almost nothing about the workers, who remain anonymous, but made it clear they are racing against time to prevent a "critical meltdown".

記事原文 18/03/2011 Pulp mill to deliver $10b to economy: report The Tasmanian timber company Gunns has released a report showing its Tamar Valley pulp mill will deliver $10 billion to the Tasmanian economy over the next 20 years. Gunns hired Insight Economics to examine the economic impact of building its pulp mill at Bell Bay. The company says the report also shows the $2.5 billion project will create 3,100 jobs during each year of operation. Gunns' Chief Executive Greg L'Estrange says the report shows the pulp mill will be the single greatest "shot in the arm" for the Tasmanian economy in a very long time.
Voters Will judge Brown Bob Brown’s disgusting attempt to score political points at the height of the Japanese disaster proves that this man is not fit to represent the view of any True Australian, let alone lead a political party. Brown has ignored human decency by focusing on his selfish ambitions and showing little concern at agony of an entire nation who may never recover from this terrible tragedy. Australians will quickly judge such people and hopefully their judgement will be harsh come the next elections. 15/03/2011 J.Rutherford, Keysborough 上記意訳 日本の被災者に対して何の思いやりも無く、原発事故を自分と党の宣伝につかう恥知らずなボブ ブラウンの態度は、真のオーストラリア人を代表するものではない。 彼は人として政治家として失格であり、次の選挙で豪国民によって制裁をうけるであろう。
またジュリア ギラードも緑の党を “Extremists”（狂信者）と呼んでいる。

Australians have been told to leave Japan's capital as the earthquake and tsunami-hit country hinges on the verge of nuclear disaster. High levels of radiation have been detected at the plant and low levels have been detected wafting over Tokyo, 250 kilometres to the south. Foreign Affairs Minister Kevin Rudd says Australians in Tokyo or other affected prefectures should leave. The US, French and British governments have provided similar advice to its nationals in the affected areas.
