Rwandan refugee fulfils dream to become soldier in Australian Army

Theogene Ngamije hopes to become a peacekeeper with the Australian Army someday. This morning I was getting dressed and thinking is this real?” Private Ngamije said.The soldier said his motivation to join the forces came from meeting an Australian peacekeeper in a Rwandan refugee camp in 1994. The Australian offered Private Ngamije a biscuit and an Australian flag, and in doing so, became a lifelong role model. After decades of waiting, an African refugee who fled terrible conflict has been granted his wish of becoming a soldier in the Australian Army.Theogene Ngamije, from war-torn Rwanda, has become one of the Army’s newest recruits and is beside himself.”It’s unbelievable, I still can’t believe it. Another 22 years later he resettled and enlisted in Wagga Wagga. (ABC News: Benjamin Shuhyta)
Platoon commander Lieutenant Matthew Hunt said it was remarkable how that peacekeeper played such a big part in how Private Ngamije’s life panned out.”It goes to show what a simple gesture from that soldier can do to change someone’s life,” Lieutenant Hunt said.”Now Ngamije has the opportunity to change more lives.”The identity of the Australian peacekeeper is still unknown, but maybe not for long as the story is already being shared widely among veterans groups and on social media.Private Ngamije’s cousin Denise Ngabo said the family was in celebration mode.”He’s like the first Rwandan I know who’s graduated to become a soldier in the Australian Army, and he’s my cousin, so it was a very emotional experience and I’m very proud of him.”Private Ngamije said he felt on top of the world as he marched out of Kapooka when completing his recruit training.”I don’t know if it’s appropriate to say but I was feeling pumped, like, I’ve done it with my mates,” he said.”It’s awesome.”Private Ngamije will now join the Ordnance Corps and hopes to serve as a peacekeeper himself someday.

National report card shows no improvement in science skills
In fact, I’m about to record this one,” he explains to his new Year 11 extension maths class. Photo:

Mr Woo’s wife Michelle understood the family pressures.”For Eddie to pursue teaching rather than … law or medicine, which he potentially could have done, was kind of like a slap in the face [to his parents],”she said.”They’ve given up everything for him and [they’re thinking] he’s chosen to do something where he’s not using his full potential.”Mr Woo said his desire to help students was partially born out of the racism and bullying he experienced as one of only a few children of Asian background in his suburban Sydney primary school in the early ’90s.”There are definitely parts of my upbringing and the difficulties that I had at school that make me want to take those students who I can see are having difficulty… [and help them] come out of that experience,” he said.’Just a normal guy doing what he loves’In April, Mr Woo won the 2017 University of Sydney Young Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement.In March, he was one of 12 Australian teachers honoured at the Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards.These awards were just the latest in a string of accolades Mr Woo has received in recognition of his contribution to teaching. It may not seem like the usual repertoire for a maths teacher, but this technology is Mr Woo’s core tool of the trade.”For those of you that haven’t met me, I’m Mr Woo. (Australian Story: Rebecca Baillie)
Owen Potter, who attends high school in the small central-western NSW town of Cobar, agreed.”It’s difficult to understand how someone in Sydney can influence thousands of people across the whole country,” he said.According to international numeracy and literacy testing of 15-year-olds, Australian students are lagging behind their peers in other developed countries.A recently released report from the OECD Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) revealed that Australia ranked only 25th of 72 participating countries in mathematics, with Australian students 28 months behind their peers in top-ranked Singapore.”Both literacy and numeracy have received a lot of press … [because] the international testing regime has seen Australia slide marginally there,” Mr Johnson said.”Probably the biggest discrepancy lies between the haves and the have-nots.”

Video: Mr Woo's family expected him to pursue a career such as law, politics or medicine. I record all of them. “The subjects I chose [at school] were heavily weighted in the humanities, which is somewhat unusual for a South-East Asian migrant growing up in Australia,” he said.”It wasn’t until I went to university and had to interact with maths at a different level that I really started to connect with it.”Mr Woo’s parents migrated to Australia in the early 1970s for better education opportunities, and had high expectations for their youngest child.A former student at the top academic selective school in NSW, James Ruse Agricultural High School, Mr Woo completed his Higher School Certificate in 2003, scoring an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of more than 98.Being in the top 2 per cent of the state meant he could have done anything career-wise.”My mum expected my brother to study something quite typical of Asian families, something like law,” Mr Woo’s sister, Kylie Woo said. But the teachers’ car park is empty. That bothers me, that he might get poached,” he said. Photo:

Mr Woo brings ‘infectious enthusiasm’ to classroomBusinessman, benefactor and author of the much-quoted Gonski report into education reforms, David Gonski, is a big fan.He was a judge for this year’s Commonwealth Bank Teaching Awards and said Mr Woo’s application was a standout.”There is no doubt that Eddie is conquering any fears of mathematics, making it something that we can all aspire to, and allowing it to be the brain matter, the fodder for the future,” Mr Gonski said.He said his own life was changed by a couple of inspirational teachers, and he believed Mr Woo would also change the lives of students both in the Cherrybrook classroom and online.”I would say that my maths career was in two parts — prior to meeting a wonderful teacher, and when I got a teacher who helped me not be tentative anymore. For Mr Woo, though, it is all about giving back to a system that gave him so much.”I was raised in public education, I received a world-class education in principle for free, and so what I’m doing is just paying it forward,” he said.Watch Australian Story’s Channelling Mr Woo on ABC iview.

“Eddie’s just a normal guy just doing something that he loves, and so all this attention is a bit strange really,” Mrs Woo said.Mr Johnson said he had no doubt about the value and popularity of his young head maths teacher.”I’m worried that I might lose him! PISA: Australia ranks poorly, but what we can learn Rather than leaping to conclusions about a failing education system, we need to look at what the data tells us. (ABC News)
‘He sucked me into maths’Cherrybrook Technology High School Year 12 student Emily Shakespear said Mr Woo’s teaching style made maths irresistible.”I don’t want to say it, but he sucked me into maths,” she said. Save for one car.Co-head mathematics teacher Eddie Woo is already at work.”This is my 10th year teaching, and I love my subject,” Mr Woo said.One of his priorities before the first bell rings is to set up his tripod and iPad in the middle of the classroom. It is 6:00am on the first day of the school year. He has a capacity to simplify mathematics to a level where kids can really understand it,” Mr Johnson said. (ABC News)
‘Mathematics has been given a bit of a bad rub’While Mr Woo is now on a mission to change the perception of maths, he did not always plan to become teacher, let alone a maths teacher. (Supplied: Eddie Woo)
Universal appeal for teaching styleThe father-of-three’s unique approach to teaching mathematics has not gone unnoticed.Mr Woo is arguably the most famous teacher in Australia — a maths teacher by day and an internet sensation by night.He started posting videos online in 2012 for a student who was sick with cancer and missing a lot of school.Other students in the class then wanted to watch Mr Woo’s videos on his free YouTube channel and website, so he started sharing them across the country and beyond.Wootube now boasts more than 38,000 subscribers and has attracted almost 4 million views worldwide — and counting.”I did some rough back-of-the-envelope calculations, as a maths teacher would, and if you add it up, that’s about 11 million minutes of people sitting there watching me run around in front of my whiteboard explaining concepts to my classes, which is just mind-boggling!” Mr Woo said.

Mr Woo says maths was never his favourite subject at high school and did not foresee a career in teaching the subject. Video: Mr Woo takes complex maths concepts, like absolute value graphs, and makes them easy for students to understand. Then, the world became my oyster,” he said.Cherrybrook Technology High School principal Gary Johnson said Mr Woo was helping address a chronic shortage of maths teachers in Australia, and making maths popular again.”He brings an absolutely infectious enthusiasm for the subject. In case you didn’t already know, I record my lessons. The sun is only just up, and the school rooster crows. Photo:

(ABC News)
The newborns sleep for about an hour at a time, and are awake for approximately 90 minutes.”In that hour-and-a-half we can watch them suckling with mum and watch them explore and start to move around,” Mr Long said.He said while first-time mothers usually raise one cub, he is confident Liya is experienced enough to not choose one cub over another.”Most of the time, experienced mums will have two, remember they can have anywhere up to four,” he said.”Liya has been equally attentive to both cubs at the moment.”Polar bears are born blind and it takes up to three weeks for them to open their eyes.The cubs are expected to leave the den in July and they could go on public display in August.The have not yet been named. (ABC News: Tom Forbes) Sea World staff are celebrating the pitter-patter of polar bear paws after 16-year-old Liya gave birth to twins at the theme park on Queensland’s Gold Coast.The second-time mother is caring for her “rat-sized” cubs inside a maternity den, away from the theme park’s other two polar bears, twin brothers Hudson and Nelson.The 15-centimetre-long cubs were born on Wednesday and each weighs approximately 600 grams.Director of marine service Trevor Long said both adult males spent time with Liya but they suspect Hudson fathered the twins.”Due to the time, it’s an eight month gestation, she repeatedly mated with Hudson,” Mr Long said.It is the second successful breeding at the Gold Coast park with Liya giving birth to Henry in 2013.Henry was moved to Canada two years ago and now lives at a research sanctuary.Keepers are using infrared cameras and microphones to monitor the mother and cubs around the clock.

Nicki Minaj – Regret In Your Tears

[Chorus]

I tried to make some with you, baby
Regret in your tears, now you taste ’em
I just want the memories, tried to make some with you
Plus I got that ass like Selena
Don’t rush, take time, take some
Ohhhh, woooh
I tried to make some with you

Maybe I cried
I’m with you
I count up the cash and bring you the bag
You
Now you spendin’ cold nights
Don’t rush, take time, take some
You just need to leave, boy
Too picky when I make some with you
That’s gon’ care, care, hold you down and love you like this
‘Cause you know I don’t chase, I replace ’em
You don’t even know, and that’s what’s bad
You
I just want the memories, tried to make some with you
You

Now I gotta erase some with you
And you know nah-nah-nah-nah-nah, not a bitch
Regret in your tears, now you taste ’em
Now I gotta erase some with you
I tried to make some with you
Not nice, boy you know you do your dirt
You’ve been in the wrong so long

You said you would save me
I know you just wanna be heard
[Intro]
[Chorus]
You

Money bag long, that bitch bad
‘Cause you know I don’t chase, I replace ’em
[Verse 2]
Used to pull off on me, leave me hur-urt
I tried to make some with you
Used to creep, creep, with you through the back

I just want the memories, tried to make some with you
‘Cause you know I don’t chase, I replace ’em
I just want the memories, tried to make some with you
You
Now I gotta erase some with you
Look at you now, stuck in the background

Baby now I’m through with you

You don’t even know what you just had
Just once, do somethin’ for me, boy

Now I gotta erase some with you
Regret in your tears, now you taste ’em

Tried to make some with you, you
Look at you now, stuck in the background
‘Cause you know I don’t chase, I replace ’em
You
Call my line, call my line, I’m like, "Please, boy"
Don’t rush, take time, take some
Won’t find another one to ride it like a soldier like this
Regret in your tears, now you taste ’em
I’m a bad bitch, you ain’t used to that
Drop down, turn around, baby show you like this

Baby now you know you got nerve
You
[Chorus]
Baby you lied
You gon’ fuck around and make me do you bad
I just want the memories
Silence right now sounds so loud
Don’t rush, take time, take some
You said you would save me

More money than them niggas that went triple platinum
Double R’s on the gates, it’s like I’m triple platinum
‘Cause when they land, they be whiter than the Easter bunny
Bathing Ape draped on my label-mates
But tempt me, kill my Judas with a platinum sword
Everybody mad at ya when you’re living fabulous
Couple pawns in the lake the couch is in the plastic
The triple beam still up in my kitchen cabinet
These are the jewels of many gods, the secret blessings
Three million grams, I left a powder trail
Had a phone call with Drake so we could fix the madness
Goin’ hard, gangsta, triple platinum
When I speak, it’s with the richest accent
Real trap nigga, live like I’m triple platinum
Trap star, livin’ like I’m triple platinum
Ramadan once a year, my sacrificial payment
Before you buy a bottle, let’s enjoy a glass
(Maybach Music)
You understand?
Murals of Machiavelli, wealthy my mind states
May it flow just like a faucet every time you ask
Triple platinum, triple platinum
Everyday the net worth racing the crime rate
A king, but I’m punished with a crown of thorns
Triple platinum, they hatin’, niggas alter they captions
Triple platinum without an album sale
Couple pawns in the lake the pistol’s in the plastic

Starset – Telepathic

But you can read my mind
Should’ve never felt this way
That’s waiting just to get you
Felt it all around you
That’s waiting just to get you
But I’m not giving up
I don’t have a telepathic heart
You can read my mind
Telepathic
When you call a bluff
It’s a battle to surround you
Don’t want your star-crossed fate
Look inside my brain
But I don’t ever know just what we are
I don’t have a telepathic heart
Telepathic
Back to the start where I break through
Telepathic
And you always turn away
I feel it all the time
But I don’t ever know just what we are
Telepathic
You can run, you can run away
I don’t wanna let you know
It never works that way
Felt it all around you
Telepathic
I will wait in the dark for you
I don’t have a telepathic heart
I’m in the dark ’till you light the way
I feel it all the time
Telepathic
Blind, I fall into the line
I don’t have a telepathic heart
But I can’t stand to watch this
I would run to the rescue
Don’t leave me lost in vain
I don’t have a telepathic heart
Felt it all around you
But I don’t ever know just what we are
Cause you’re the sun and I’m just a moon
But you can read my mind
You had me under spell right from the start
I can be what you want
You had me under spell right from the start
Blind, I fall into the line
Telepathic
Telepathic
I don’t wanna let you know
I don’t wanna let you go
Cause I’m see through
You are the sun, I am the full moon
Blind, I fall into the line
I feel it all the time
And if I had my way
That’s waiting just to get you
And all the fools want in
But I can’t stand to watch this
Telepathic
You had me under spell right from the start
I don’t wanna let you go
Give me the words to say to make it enough
Oh, all the fools rush in
You’d know what I want before I tell you
I don’t have a telepathic heart
Telepathic

Fuck that shit, we get turnt ’til the sun is up

All of you niggas get burnt when the gun is up
Turn the beat on and I fuck it up

[Chorus: A$AP Ferg]
[Verse 3: A$AP Ferg]
Run it up, run it up, run it up, run it up
Run it up, run it up, run it up, run it up

RiFF RaFF – Lamborghini Leg Lock

Brain expanded, then she took me for granted
It’s the white Mekhi Pfife in a black Dodge Vipe
Have to smoke a half a pound just to calm down
Lamborghini flavored weed, I need Versace Visine
Walking back and forth, pacing back and forth
Now I’m a multi-millionaire, still staring at a chair
How you run up them bands like it’s physical fitness
Last time I came around I fell asleep on the ground
Okay now the camera’s on, now you wanna hold my hand
I had the same mind since I was like nine
Lab coats in the trenches, it’s the codeine chemist
I used to ride to Circle K on my Diamondback bike
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
[Verse]
Though I fall in the ocean

And try to find a wife sike, life don’t work like that
I release my feelings
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock

I might smoke a couple cones while I’m playing with the knife
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
RiFF
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
I’m a motherfucking pirate with paw prints
Mind going back in time, I used to play sports
Can’t hold a conversation, mind on another planet
"How often do you feel like this, son?" Um, most of the time
[Hook]
How you live your life all depends on what you witness
Let me guess, what’s next, tag you on Instagram?
Blowing smoke in the air, clouds float to the ceilings
I pull up like Wanda Sykes, more liked than Betty White
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
I forget it was mine at least 99 times
[Hook]
Iceberg with white rat
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
You ever stare at the ceiling so long you thought that you would die?
I’m super anti-social so my window’s slightly tinted
Fire up another flame as they repeat my name
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Yo, shout out to Reef, shout out to Tryke
Mood enhancers, documented Diamond dancer
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Pinky and the Brain as I sip champagne
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Earned my stripes, that’s why I sip syrup in my Sprite
You need to stay away from violence, here smoke this
(RiFF)
Pocket full of Laffy Taffy, Fire Jolly Ranchers
Blowing smoke out the top, Lamborghini Leg Lock
Who him, the pied pipe
Why can’t Superman live an ordinary life
Smoke palm trees til my eyes bleed

R3hab – Hallucinations (feat. R I T U A L) (Lyric Video)

We’re just hallucinations
We’re just hallucinations
I sense something new
We’re just hallucinations
[Verse]

Must be hallucination
In my mind I realize you’re not true
We’re just hallucinations
Swore I saw you coming over here
I can’t fight this, got my eyes fixed on you
We’re just hallucinations
In my mind I realize you’re not true

I can’t fight this, got my eyes fixed on you
[Chorus]
We’re just hallucinations
We’re just hallucinations
[Verse]

[Outro]
We’re just hallucinations
We’re just hallucinations
Happiness is just controlling fear
Must be something we do?
[Chorus]
We’re just hallucinations
[Bridge]
Must be something we do?
I sense something new
We’re just hallucinations
Must be hallucination
We’re just hallucinations
[Chorus]

PVRIS – Heaven

Just like a rising and falling chest that’s barely breathing
You took my heaven away
You took my heaven away
You took my, you took my heaven away
All I did was suffer
Away
Do you think we were speaking in tongues
[Bridge]
[Chorus]
Why couldn’t we just say

Do you ever wonder
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away

Away
[Interlude]
Who took the light from our life?
The light from my eyes?
[Ending]
All we did was suffer
You took my heaven away
And didn’t you ever wonder
(You took my heart)
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
[Chorus]
I think we were cursed from the start
About the dread on my tongue?
[Verse 1]
You took my
You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away
The blood in my lungs?
(You took my heart)
Or simply not enough?
(You took my heart)
(You took my heart)
I was too afraid to say

(You took my heart)
Our love is pushing out and pulling in
(You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away)
Second I let you into my heart
[Verse 2]
(You took my heart)
I think we were cursed from the start
You took my heaven away
(You took my heart)

(You took my, you took my, you took my heaven away)
Away

Madchild – Badchild

Not Casper the Ghost tight grasping for quotes
Fans acting like it’s killing them, these cheap tricks
Used to sit and gather my words, called it artillery
Last three months catatonic, feeling miserable
Now life is torture, would madly end it willingly
I don’t expect anyone to understand me
‘Cause pills the only way I know to patch these open wounds
[Verse 2]
Reason I’m still here are for my dogs and my family
Bubbling but still missing something like I’m diet cola
Trying to boss up like Tony Soprano
[Verse 1]
Can’t complain, kids like my art
Lost a couple teeth, went back to the grill again
Walk around my city and I feel like I’m invisible
Standing on a ledge about to jump but I’ll rejuvenate
Responsibility, literally killing me
But life moves so fast, I need a time out
Known for saying harsh remarks that are partially dark
But feel like, I’m still waiting for my life to start
Wasn’t working so I went and got my teeth fixed

High roller that’s bipolar
Starts a line once, haven’t had a break since
Samples chopped like it’s martial arts
Might be punished for my sins, that would make sense
Now I’m older, I got suicidal tendencies
When I was young, love, suicidal tendencies
Panic in my legs, feel heavy while I hallucinate
Maybe I should lower the bar, it’s raised too high
Nothing’s fucking thrilling me Life used to sparkle.
Feel stranded on an island like I’m Gilligan
Now feel like a piece of shit in a bottomless pit
Maybe I should work harder, but I do try
I’m still a boss like I’m Joseph Bonanno
Never felt like I had to ask it for dough
Holding on, but I hope it’s soon
Used to walk around, thank god i’m the shit
Trying to build my strength like beam so I can climb out
