From 30 August:  THE KINDERGARTEN TEACHER, starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gael Garcia Bernal

Stuck in an unsatisfying marriage and with teenage children who ignore her, 40-year-old Lisa Spinelli treads water by teaching kindergarten with quiet dispassion.  Everything changes when Lisa discovers that Jimmy, a five-year-old boy in her class, may be a gifted poet and sees him as a ticket out of her mundane life.  When Lisa presents some of Jimmy’s work at her poetry class as her own and receives praise from her teacher, her desire to mentor the child genius grows.  As fascination turns to obsession, Lisa spirals downward on a dangerous and desperate path to channel her unfulfilled creative dreams into the protégé.  Rated M

From 6 September: TRANSIT, a haunting drama starring Franz Rogowski and Paula Beer

As fascism spreads, German refugee Georg flees to Marseille and assumes the identity of the recently deceased writer whose transit papers he is carrying.  As German troops begin to rapidly advance on Paris he delves into the delicate and complex culture of the refugee community, becoming tangled in the lives of a young mother and son and falling for a mysterious woman named Maria, who is searching for her husband, the man whose identity he has stolen.  Making use of the uncanny parallels between historical face and present-day, director Christian Petzold tells the story of a great love amid escape, exile and a longing for a place to call home.  Rated M  In French and German with English subtitles

It is disappointing

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Dear Editor

It is disappointing, and yet ultimately unsurprising that I have not received any replies to last weeks letter/email. With all the many letters/emails we have written, the majority have been ignored by our Council, the Administrative Arm, the Administrator, Boral, Ministers of Parliament and departments alike.

We, as the residents of Norfolk Island, are entitled to know what is going on with our island, and the biosecurity of the imported rock. We deserve a better response than an auto reply, a fob off or passing us on to another department/person.

In fact, the only people who have had the decency to acknowledge our letters and emails have been media based. They too would like to know the story behind the story.

What is it that we have to do to get some firm answers?

St John Ambulance Report

Thursday, August 29, 2019

Burns may come from a variety of sources, hot water, fireplaces, chemical or electrical burns, or industrial burns where bitumen may be involved.

WHAT TO DO:           

If clothing is burning, STOP, DROP and ROLL, pull casualty to the ground, roll around the ground and cover with a blanket or jacket until flames are extinguished.

If casualty has suffered a scald from hot liquid, remove damp clothing immediately.

Cool running water is the best thing you can do to help a burn casualty.

AVOID lotions, ointments or other old wife’s tales, such as butter, run cool running water over the burn for 20 minutes, this is the one best treatment you can give.

Remove any items of jewellery or clothing from the burn area UNLESS the item is stuck to the burn area. AVOID touching the burn area, DO NOT burst blisters.

Cover burn with a non-adherent dressing, cling film, a wet clean dressing, we want to avoid having the burn exposed to decrease the risk of infection.

Seek Medical Assistance When: 

The burn is deep, it may not be painful, but it is serious.

When the burn area is significant, larger than a 20-cent piece.

Whenever a burn involves airways, face, hands or genitals.

When you are unsure, St. John Ambulance and NIHRACS are here to help

 If casualty shows of shock or if the person becomes unconscious, call triple zero (000) for the Ambulance, Jimbo will be straight orn et.
