It’s something South Sydney lacked last year throughout a severe premiership hangover after their 2014 triumph, but Coonamble Bears productBraidon Burns believes he could be the man to provide the Rabbitohs with a much needed lift in 2017.

That spark.

The former Penrith Panther made the move from Sydney’s west to Redfern this season, seeking an opportunity that never arrived at the foot of the mountains.

At just 20 years of age, time isn’t an issue for Burns, but the rangy outside back is hopeful he’ll get a crack at the NRL in the early stages of the season.

He’ll press for that claim at this weekend’s Auckland Nines.

“I’ve been loving it,” Burns said.

“I didn’t really ever get a look in at the Panthers. It’s been a huge learning curve making the move over to Souths, but it’s been great.

“I’d love to make my debut in the first 10 rounds, get in there early. If I can give the team a few quick play-the-balls and get them on the front foot, a bit of a spark, then I think I’ve done my job.”

Departing for Auckland on Thursday morning, Burns said the 2015 champions weren’t going to make up the numbers, like some other NRL clubs have publicly admitted to.

“We’re going over to win it,” he said.

“We’ve really got into the processes of it all this week and we’re keen to get stuck into it.”

Burns revealed he’d trained at both fullback and wing for the Rabbitohs at pre-season training.

With Queensland and Australian representative Greg Inglis a moral for the Rabbits’ No.1 jumper come round one, a spot on the wing is a more likely avenue for Burns to make his debut.

The outside back, in the mould of Blake Ferguson –another Western Rams product –said he’d been impressed with the leadership of the side, which has been bolstered by the recruitment of NSW incumbent and Wests Tigers hooker Robbie Farah.

Premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire was also a key figure in the squad.

“He’s definitely process driven. The boys all buy into it though and we feed off it,” Burns said.

“They’ve all been impressive. Sam Burgess and Greg Inglis are the obvious leaders and do a lot of the talking, but a guy like Damien Cook, he’s the fittest at the club and pushes everyone for more.”

Jayfresh Australia – one of Australia’s leading mango exporters – is selling its Bowen mango aggregation, comprising 13,500 high yielding trees across three properties.

The properties include:Delta – a 4ha holding featuring 620 R2E2 mango trees with extensive fresh packing and shedding infrastructure in the prime logistics hub of Bowen; Euri Creek – a 56haproperty featuring 8000 R2E2 mango trees with accompanying shedding and a residence; and Beaumont Organic Farm – a 96haproperty featuring 5000 Kensington Pride mango trees with additional land suitable for additional mango plantings or other horticultural pursuits. Beaumont also boasts an integrated mango processing factory on site, able to produce dried and frozen mango cheeks and pasteurised puree and juice.

CBRE’s Phil Schell and Chris Holgar are selling the property in conjunction with local agents’ Landmark Bowen’s Rob Wilde and Gary Johns.

Mr Holgar said the opportunity to secure a presence in Australia’s mango capital would be strongly sought after.

“Located at the ‘top of the Whitsundays’, within two hours of Townsville and Mackay, and less than an hour from Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island, Bowen is home of the Big Mango– renown for producing the first Kensington Pride Mango in the late 1880s, and later the world renowned R2E2 variety,” Mr Holgar said.

“Bowen was also the first place in Australia to grow mango commercially, with Jayfresh’s Delta property thought to be Australia’s first commercial R2E2 orchard. The property boasts a well-earned reputation for producing consistently high quality and reliable supply worldwide.”

“Boasting both R2E2 and Organic Kensington Pride varieties – the best Australian varieties – this aggregation presents an exceptional opportunity for investors and horticultural operators looking to cement a strong position in both the local and export markets.”

The sale includes the Jayfresh Mango brand and over 20 years of export and domestic goodwill.

Immaculately maintained with top quality plant and equipment, the aggregation also provides an enviable lifestyle for owners and staff, including three residences set in stunning scenery amongthe Whitsunday coast’s best horticultural landholdings.

Mr Schell said the offering represented an attractive opportunity to capitalise on existing links in strong export markets.

“With R2E2 being the preferred export variety, highly regarded in the Chinese, Middle East and European markets for its large size and beautiful blush, this property represents an exceptional opportunity to further build on the strong connections in these growing markets,” Mr Schell said.

“The current Bowen aggregation provides scope to produce in excess of 100,000 cartons on R2E2 mangos, making it potentially the largest single producer of R2E2 in Australia.”

Experience will count

EXTRA FIREPOWER: Ryan Griffiths trains with the Wanderers squad after being signed by the club in the January transfer window. Western Sydney play Wellington on Saturday.RYAN Griffiths brings a lot to the Wanderers, but his experience in Asia will be invaluable.
Nanjing Night Net

It’s always a boost to have another attacking option at the club, even though you would like to have as much game time as possible.

They are crucial weeks ahead, trying to juggle a push for A-League finals, as well as starting our Asian Champions League campaign.

The ACL games are played in a completely different style, where a lot of Asian teams like to sit off you more andit’s not as physical.

It’s also about managing the home and away legs and qualifying for the knockout stages, so Ryan’s knowledge after playing in the top Asian leagues, including China, will be very important.

We’re without Lachy Scott this week, among others, as part of the Young Socceroos commitments, so Ryan comes into the squad at an important time.

After playing against Ryan in China, I’ve also played with his brother Joel and used to live with brother Adam while in Belgium.

So I’m familiar with the family, how Ryan plays and confident he will score some important goals.

After the trip to Brisbane, we spent a long day travelling to New Zealand.

We left Sydney early on Thursday morning and didn’t make it to Plymouth, where we will play against the Phoenix, until 7pm New Zealand time.

But after the disappointment of conceding the late goal to lose toBrisbane, we must be prepared to do whatever it takes to take three points away on Saturday.

The Jets win over Melbourne City has further complicated the finals picture, though we’re only two points behind them and one behind the Phoenix.

However, we’ve been playing too well over the past month to be denied the wins we need for too much longer.

They will come.

It was frustrating against Brisbane, to fight back and equalise, then be down to 10 men for the final minutes.

Scott Neville’s second yellow became our fifth red for the season, as I’ve been guilty of myself, having spent three weeks on the sidelines as a result.

They become very costly when you’re fighting for important points and concede a late goal like on Saturday.

The coach (Tony Popovic) is big on enforcing discipline among the squad, so he’s disappointed at the send-offs we’ve had and expects more from us. It was all the more difficult to accept the loss when (Roar goalkeeper)Theo made a great save to stop my shot and then I was denied a penalty at 1-all.

I was pulled back three times, but they are the decisions which sometimes just don’t come when you’re fighting for form and momentum.

And playing in the ACL will be a key part of it, sometimes juggling two competitions can be a handful.But we’re confident performing well in the ACL will help ensure we make the A-League finals as well.

Rivals teams, fans and criticsshould not underestimate us, even though the season hasn’t reached the heights we would have liked so far.

The argument tony Popovic has achieved all he can at the Wanderers is a little bit silly.

He’s built this teamfrom a blank piece of paper and in five years has achieved amazing success, the envy of the competition.

ACL trophies, as well as Premier’s Plates do not come easily.Popa has also knocked back offers from overseas to continue his mission here and hopefully he will still be around to see us win the grand final as well.

Expo of vintage wedding gowns

Eleanor Chase, who married Charles Taft, US President Taft’s youngest son, in 1917 (Darnell Collection).
Nanjing Night Net

IF you’re a sucker for vintage fashion, get down to Hawkesbury Regional Gallery for Here Comes the Bride – a bridal exhibition featuring gowns from the Darnell Collection, as well as accessories and prize-winning wedding cakes.

Doris Darnell was a Quaker from Pennsylvania, who pursued her passion for fashion by collecting vintage clothes and accessories for over 70 years. For Ms Darnell, the social history behind the items was as important as the items themselves, and preserving them and their stories for future generations became an important part of her passion.

The Darnell Collection grew out of donations and gifts from her family’s wider circle of friends and acquaintances around the world. Most most of the items came with accompanying letters, photographs and stories which linked them to the original owners or donors and often to the occasions to which they were worn.

Blue Mountains resident, Charlotte Smith inherited the collection in 2004. It has continued to grow through further bequests to over 8000 pieces representing 32 different countries and is considered the largest private vintage clothing collection in Australia.

Joan Hegarty, 1961 (Hawkesbury Regional Museum Collection)

Gowns from the Darnell Collection, as well as from the Hawkesbury Regional Museum Collection, will form part of the exhibition, as well as a wall display of wedding photos from members of the Hawkesbury community.

Gallery director, Diana Robson, said: “We are very grateful to Charlotte Smith, owner and curator of the Darnell Collection, for making this wonderful show possible.”

“The wedding dress is arguably the most important dress a married woman ever wears, and what it says about the wearer and her times makes it the ultimate fashion statement.”

Here Comes the Bride will open at the Gallery in Windsor on Friday, February 10, and will run through to Sunday, March 26.

As part of the exhibition, the gallery will be hosting a high tea with Charlotte Smith, on Thursday, March 9. Bookings are essential – book online at hawkesburygallery.eventbrite南京夜网 or call 4560 4441.

Single mothers are used to the stigma, David Archibald, but we’re far from lazy

David Archibald speaks at a rally in Perth in 2011. Photo: YouTube/mmattjanetSingle mothers lazy? Anthony Albanese – son of a single mother –is rightto call for Pauline Hanson to dump Western Australian One Nation candidate David Archibaldfor saying single motherhood “was a lifestyle choice” and thatsingle mothers were “too lazy to attract and hold a mate”.
Nanjing Night Net

As a single mum of four, I am used to this negative stigmatism which too often accompanies non-traditional parenthood.

Anthony Albanese’s mother, Maryanne Ellery, raised her son on her own. Photo: Albanese Family

I know I am in the minority: Only 16 per cent of families worldwide are single-parent families. But given I didn’t get a full night’s sleep for almost 4000 consecutive nights (or 10 years), that could hardly make me lazy. Singlemotherhood means double the work, double the responsibility and double the number of decisions. Theformula for raising children is often difficult for two-parent families to grasp let alone one on their own.

For me, the jobof single motherhood wasn’t a choice, but circumstances lead me here. The package goesbeyond fulltime paid work. I single-handedly supported a family of five, raising four children under seven, with the constant anxiety of being 100 per centaccountable for the well-being of my children. It’s not just the anxiety but the lack of some one to help with chores around the home that can be overwhelming. I was taking the garbage bins out the night I went into labour with my fourth child. I had to cajole the other three children into the car (yes … they all came to the birth). This cemented the turbulent breadth of responsibility that lay ahead.

Federal ALP politician Anthony Albanese, son of a single mother says he is offended by One Nation’s David Archibald calling single mothers lazy. Photo: Kate Geraghty

Despite my perpetual state of exhaustion, I drew upon my own life experiences to formulate a unique parenting method for a unique situation. These included three years backpacking, working and living around the world, learning various languages, three university degrees and a career as a finance journalist and editor.

My children have all thrived academically and socially and they are extremely kind, well-adjusted people so I can now look back relieved that whatever I did, for the most part, worked.

Of course, there are challenges unique to every single-parent family. The hardest parts of single motherhood have been:

1. Fatigue. My parenting style, which involved co-sleeping, breastfeeding each child for at least two years, home cooking, fulltime work and volunteer work, meant I was always tired.

2. Decisions. A single parent with full responsibility for their children has no consistent sounding board to flesh out decisions. When every decision needs to be made by one person alone, it can be overwhelming. I made plenty of good decisions but I also made some bad ones – and for those, it would have been great to share the blame with someone …

3. Vulnerability. Single parents with full responsibility are financially, emotionally and socially vulnerable because we are on our own. In a healthy relationship, one plus one equals so much more. But when you are on your own, there is no one to play devil’s advocate, no one to playgood cop/bad cop and no one to back up your argument.

Despite those challenges, there are some very special things about being a single parent. A conflict-free environment is possibly the most important. Then there is the closeness to your children. And the knowledge that they are the way they are because of all your hard work, love and dedication.

There is too the liberating side of making all the decisions on your own, unhindered by a partner.

I took my children to live in France. We backpackedfrom the Arctic Circle in Norway down to the Sahara Desert in Morocco. On another trip, we ventured through China and across Russia and Mongolia on the Trans-Siberian railway. We travelled around Australia – camping under the stars, swimming in deserted hot water springs and climbing mountains.

This latest comment from a One Nation male politician showsthere will always be people out there who label and judge.

Single parenthood comes in many forms ranging from parents with zero contact with their children to parents with 100 per centresponsibility.

Most of us don’t start out wanting to be single parents. We find ourselves in this circumstance for varied reasons, including the death of a partner, separation/divorce, adoption, planned insemination, unplanned or planned pregnancy and rape.

It is not just single mums who get judged. Career women, women without children, gay people and even white picket fence married people with children get judged.

There is no longer a prescribed formula for what a family looks like or how you should raise your children.

For me, from the ashes of the unexpected and a lot of hard work and intuitive, independent thinking, I grew strong and resilient and stopped caring about who was judging.And I learnt to embrace the abundance that I do have. I am many things to my family and friends: but lazy isn’t one of them.

Busker’s ambitions: Mel Yeates singing her way across nation for a cause

A GIRL AND HER GUITAR: Musician Mel Yeates is hoping to raise money and awareness of depression, suicide and cancer when she performs in Orange as part of a national busking tour. Photo: SUPPLIEDA woman who is using her life savings to travelAustralia as part of a year-long busking tour to raise money and awareness for suicide, depression and cancer charitieswill perform in Orange in March.
Nanjing Night Net

Mel Yeates’ life was shattered by the tragic death of three friends leading her to take to the road to raise $100,000 for beyondblue and Love Your Sister charities.

The 30-year-old began her tour, A Girl, Her Car and Her Guitar to show people that if they are going through a tough time there are services that can help.

“I didn’t really know about beyondblue when I went through the tragedy of losing two friends in year 9,” she said.

“There are people that can help people who are depressed or touchedby anxiety.”

The Sydney woman’spersonal tragedy began during asecondary school camp when her best friend and another friend were killed in adevastating accident.

“I lost my best friend; we shared everything, that’s how close we were,” Miss Yeates said.

“I lost all interest in school, friends and my family. I didn’t care about study and I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life.”

Another close family friend committed suicide, and when she was 15 her cousin was diagnosed with cancer.

She is hoping to be in Orange on March 11 or 12 and is yet to finalise a venue.

She said the idea of the tour was inspired byactor Samuel Johnson who is known for roles in mini-seriesMollyandSecret Life of Us, and started the Love Your Sister charity following his sister’s terminal breast cancer diagnosis.

Miss Yeates’inspiration came from his16,000km ride around Australia on a unicycle in 2013 which raisedmore than $1.5 million for cancer research.

“My original goal last year was to raise $20,000 [for beyond blue and Love Your Sister]in 20 months and I managed to do it in six months and I’m at $27,000 now.

“Raising $100,000 is pretty daunting and it’ll take a long time, but I’m going to give it my best.

“Every gig I do, there’s someone in the audience who has been affected by a mental health condition or knows someone who has, and when I share my story they share theirs.

“If I can make people happy while I’m singing, that’s great. I just want to make that difference.”

BeyondblueCEO Georgie Harman said Miss Yeates is helping thousands of people living with mental health conditions.

“Mel has already raised a significant amount for us and now she’s devoting an entire year of her life to the cause,” she said.

Buyers compete for lots

ON THE CATWALK: The hammer falls at the South East Livestock Exchange (SELX) cattle sale. SELX SHEEP AND LAMBS: Vendors sold21,860 sheep and lambs.
Nanjing Night Net

According to Meat and Livestock Australia’s National Livestock Reporting Service the quality was better with more shorn lambs penned.

Light weight unshorn lambs were in fewer numbers and restocking activity was not as feverish.

Trade and heavy lambs were better supplied and there were only a few pens of extra heavy lambs offered. The return of a supermarket order and an extra southern buyer completed a full field of buyers. The market was dearer on the lambs. Restocking lambs sold from $60 to $117/head.

The medium and heavy trade weights were $4 to $5 dearer selling from $115 to $150/head, to average 610c to 630c for the better shaped lambs. Heavy lambs gained $4 selling between $134 and $165/head with extra heavy lambs reaching $188.20 to average 610c/kg. The best of the hoggets made to $135/head.

Mutton numbers declined and the quality was good with reasonable numbers of all weights and grades.

Prices were $2 to $3 cheaper over the runs with medium weight ewes selling from $74 to $116/head, the latter for Merinos with long wools.

Heavy crossbred ewes reached $131.20/head with most averaging between 380c and 410c/kg cwt.

WAGGA CATTLE:Vendorsoffered and sold a total of 4000 cattle at the Wagga market on Monday. The limited supply of vealers sold to stronger demand, selling at 330c to 365c/kg.

Medium weight grass finished heifers were well supplied and stronger competition from domestic processors aided the price lift of 11c/kg.Heifers to slaughter sold at 300c to 330c to average 315c/kg.

Trade-weight steers sold 2c dearer topping at 322c/kg. Store conditioned light weight steers returning to the paddock topped at 409c to average 406c/kg.Prices for well-bred C2 yearling steers eased back 2c to 10c/kg. Medium-weight steers made from 320c to 360c/kg.The main run of lighter feeder heifers sold 11c cheaper making from 315c to 338c/kg.
