The half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has been reportedly assassinated in the Malaysian capital, Kuala Lumpur. Malaysian police said Kim Jong-nam collapsed suddenly at Kuala Lumpur International Airport – KLIA – he died en-route to hospital.
Police official Fadzil Ahmat said the cause of death was not yet known, and a post-mortem would be carried out on the body.
According to the official, Kim Jong-nam had been planning to travel to Macau on Monday when he fell ill at the airport’s low-cost terminal. “He felt dizzy, so he asked for help at the counter of KLIA.”
Kim Jong-nam was taken to an airport clinic where he still felt unwell, and it was decided to take him to hospital :: Read the full article »»»»

As polling booths prepare to open across Perth, one political party has ramped up its media presence with that standard Aussie manoeuvre, a pair of strategically place boobs.
In this latest round of political campaigning – Senate seats for Western Australia – The Australian Sports Party has posted a joke on it’s Facebook page that has many wondering what direction – if any – the party intends to canvas punters on.
Australia has a rich history of political cranks, our last election, 2013, witnessed a cacoffiny of crazy, odd-ball candidates.
From Clive Palmer’s paranoia – the billionaire turned politician still reckons lefty Greens are funded by the CIA – to the dope (hemp if you must) party, This latest election – a senate only re-run due to bungling by the Electoral Commission – will surely see politics over-run by mental micro opinion?
The big question has to be ‘has Australian politics become, well, too Aussie?’ As minor, micro parties busily stitch together preferences, swapping deals in the hope of riding an unpredictable wave into the Australian Federal Parliament, the marriages are likely to be idiosyncratic matches, The Hemp, Sports and Sustainable Pollution Parties have little in common but are likely to swap preference in order to gain seats.
The Australian Sports Party -ASP – should apologise for the above Facebook photo, a prominent women’s rights group says. The picture is accompanied by an anecdote about the woman, described as “voluptuous” and a “babe”, who is running with a sign around her neck saying, “If you catch me, you can have me” :: Read the full article »»»»

Australia’s Education Minister Christopher Pyne has announced a review of the nations school curriculum, he’s indicated he wants the curriculum to have a greater focus on the benefits of Western civilisation.
He has asked two critics of the current curriculum – former teacher and ex-Liberal Party staffer Kevin Donnelly, and University of Queensland Professor Ken Wiltshire – to review what is taught in Australian schools.
The Australian Education Union, which represents teachers, believes many of the minister’s concerns are unfounded, saying the national curriculum is already overseen by an independent body, which includes representatives of every state and territory education minister, as well as the private school sector.
Both of the men tasked with reviewing the curriculum have previously expressed concern at what is being taught in the nation’s schools. In July last year Professor Wiltshire wrote that the content of the curriculum was “poor and patchy”, adding that it “has been condemned by experts in just about every discipline, and there are no apparent values serving as its foundation”.
The other man tasked with reviewing Australia’s education curriculum, former teacher and ex-Liberal Party staffer Kevin Donnelly says Australian education has become too secular, and the nation’s Judeo-Christian heritage should be better reflected in the curriculum. Mr Donnelly says religion does not have enough of a presence in Australia’s “very secular curriculum”, and that it needs to be taught “more effectively” :: Read the full article »»»»

Australian Government Dumps Education Reforms
A turnaround in policy position isn’t a huge surprise straight after an election, it sought of goes with the the furniture. Except in this case, apparently, both sides of Australian politics were in FULL agreement prior to the last election?
Prime Minister Tony Abbott has denied that 10 weeks into governing, he’s breaking a pre-election promise – to match Labor’s school funding model – saying that his government would “do a little bit better.”
However, promises to one side, Australia’s new Government has just announced it will scrap the previous – Labor – governments plan for school funding reform, and will instead renegotiate individual agreements with all states and territories within the next 12 months :: Read the full article »»»»

China has unveiled sweeping changes to some of its most controversial laws including its one-child policy and its forced labour camps. The major policy shift also includes reductions on the application of the death penalty, reforms to a widely abused “petition” system and changes in a residency registration scheme.
The changes, revealed by the official Xinhua news agency, were announced days after a meeting of the country’s top Communist Party leaders.
Couples will now be allowed to have two children if one of the parents is an only child, significantly widening the exceptions to a rule introduced in 1979 to control China’s then exploding population, now the world’s largest.
The one-child policy is controversial both within and outside China, the policy has at times been brutally enforced, with authorities relying on permits, fines and in some cases forced sterilisations and late-term abortions, often triggering public outrage :: Read the full article »»»»
