In anticipation for the graduation ceremony, Cheyenne had already signed up as a volunteer at her local fire brigade in Gumma.”I just have to do my online course and the practical component so once that’s done I can go out on the truck and put out fires,” she said.”I reckon it’s great for girls to get involved — it’s not just a boy’s job anymore.”Cheyenne said although a future in firefighting could be confronting, she was excited at the prospect of saving lives.”Plenty of people aren’t prepared for the reality of a bushfire until it’s actually happening around them,” she said.”I don’t know where I will go after high school, but no matter where I am I will join a local brigade.”Emma Biddich, 14

Lachlan decided to jump into volunteering immediately, and was completing his course to join the Wauchope brigade over the coming weeks.”The gear isn’t too heavy once you get used to it, but the boots can get pretty uncomfortable after a 12-hour shift,” he said.”I am also a scout, and I have always had an interest in serving the community and committing my time to being involved in community engagement.”Program organiser at Camden Haven High School Glen Northey said he has been impressed by how the local brigade had built bonds with his aspiring students.”These kids have had the opportunity to learn skills that ordinarily aren’t taught in schools, and now many of the students are mentors to younger wannabe firefighters,” he said.”I reckon if you come back in 10 years’ time, all of these kids will be a part of our local brigades and fighting regional fires.”

Ebony said her family had been her major inspiration to join the RFS cadets.”My dad is the captain of the Gumma Brigade, just outside of Macksville, my sister is also a part of the brigade, so I have really grown up with firefighting around me,” she said.Macksville High School sports organiser Aaron Parker said the cadets he managed had been outstanding and were excited to consider a future with the RFS.”The kids joked that now they have completed the course they could save my house, and they aren’t wrong,” he said.”This experience has really brought the community together; it’s nice to know that your neighbours and their kids can support you if you are in danger during fire season.”Ebony said she was committed to being a part of her local brigade no matter where she lived across the country.”Firefighting can take you anywhere, my dad assisted in the Victorian fires a few years ago,” she said.”So no matter where I go for university, I will definitely be joining my local brigade, as long as I am helping the community.”Zeke Punton, 14

When it came to being prepared, Emma said everything you needed to know was in your pocket.”There are quite a few apps around these days like the Fires Near Me app, and it will send you alerts,” she said.”You have to be prepared; it’s definitely a conversation to have with your parents to have a bushfire survival plan at your home.”Emma said joining the cadets had allowed her to break the stereotype of a ‘fireman’.”Who said that firefighters have to be men? (ABC Mid North Coast: Gabrielle Lyons)
Zeke Punton may be softly spoken, but Mr Parker said he showed true leadership throughout the course.”He was outstanding; a number of weeks he was selected as a leader by the teams,” he said.”He truly shone and showed absolute passion; he wants to be the person that potentially saves lives.”Zeke said after day one of the course he was keen to get home and share his knowledge with his family.”Living in Gumma, where fires are pretty common, it makes me more comfortable to know that I could help my community,” he said.”Other than taking home a pretty cool RFS hat, I took home some books and pamphlets to show my parents so they could be prepared too.”Cheyenne Mills, 16

Cheyenne Mills says using the radios to call in a fire is nerve-wracking at first, but now she is confident as a volunteer at her local brigade.

‘Bloody Markus’, 85, prepares for 27th Noosa Tri

“When I did my first triathlon, they’re in five-year age groups and the oldest one was 55 to 59 and I did it at 58 so the next year I would’ve been I don’t know what,” he said.”So I went to the chief of Tri Queensland and he said ‘Bloody Markus, what is it now?’ … and it’s stuck ever since.”Initially, he intended to do only one triathlon.”I didn’t have a pushbike so I bought a pushbike for $200 … and I did the one Noosa Tri and got such a buzz, 25 years later I did my 25th Noosa Tri on my 83rd birthday,” he said.With a list too long to count of state and national age group titles, he said logically it made sense to retire on such a high note, but his heart spoke differently.Frightened by potential boredom, in 2016 he started the team — Bloody Old Buggers — and on Sunday he’ll swim 1.5 kilometres as part of that team for the second year.An 81-year-old will take the 40-kilometre cycle leg while a 67-year-old has the 10-kilometre run covered.Mr Hanley is among 12,000 competitors taking part in the biggest standard distance triathlon in the world.Organisers told the ABC that despite the size of the event, Mr Hanley was well known.”The Noosa Triathlon is like one big family and legends like Markus who have been involved for so many years are an integral part of the race history and the Noosa family,” they said.With two days to go, Mr Hanley was somewhat relaxed despite a long while between swims.”I haven’t done a one-and-a-half K swim since last year,” he laughed. “But I relax in the water.”Mr Hanley said the attraction of triathlons was engaging in three different sports at once.

“Get bold not old,” says Marcus Hanley, 85, who is days away from another Noosa Triathlon. (ABC Sunshine Coast: Kylie Bartholomew)
His training regime eased, he said, after he turned 80 and now it was more for fun.”It’s 10 kilometres down to Main Beach so I ride the pushy down on the walk-ride path because I’m scared of being on the road and riding … and then I have a swim. At 85, ‘Bloody Markus’ Hanley is Queensland’s oldest registered triathlete.But age is no barrier for the Sunshine Coast local who is preparing his swimwear and goggles for the 27th year of the Noosa Triathlon, the biggest event of its kind in the world.Affectionately known as ‘Bloody Markus’ in triathlon circles, the happy-go-lucky character said the nickname had stuck since his introduction to the sport at the tender age of 58. I used to run but now with my knee I have a walk.”Despite feeling “stuffed” and “much, much slower” after finishing a triathlon, he’s not motivated by times or records.”I get the satisfaction of finishing a race and still feeling good for it,” Mr Hanley said.”We should all do things to the best of our ability without overdoing things but to be able to accomplish something over such a long period of time,” he said.”I’m a very determined person when I set my mind to something and that’s what’s kept me going.”I’m not a brilliant sportsperson, but I’m determined.”

Ice hockey in steamy Darwin? It’s a thing

“They said ‘We saw you’ve opened an ice rink in Darwin. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
As for the old, undefeated team’s legacy, Mr Hunnam said the new one had their blessing.”Beat Erismann, the captain of that team, was down here earlier today,” he said.”He popped his head in to have a look, say hello and wish us well for the weekend.”

Mr Baillie was dressed in a Canberra Knights jersey he picked up when that team folded about four years ago. Photo:
Jeff Hunnam was approached to set up a game against the Perth Whitehawks, and couldn’t say no. There is a running joke in Darwin that the steamy tropical city is home to one of the world’s most impeccable ice hockey teams. Photo:
The team spent about an hour doing training drills before a practice match. Just confuse them and hope for the best.”Non-playing team gives their blessingMr Hunnam has a theory about why the underdog team is in with a shot.”Darwin having a transient population — we’ve got defence personnel that transfer here, so some of those guys are on the team and they’ve got experience,” he said.Also signing on was a young man who represented Thailand’s ice hockey team last year, as well as expats from the colder climates of Canberra and Victoria. It’ll be interesting, but we’ll give it our best shot,” she said.”A lot of it will come down to instincts and getting in their way. Photo:
The Darwin team has no official name and no official captain, but they are not letting that dampen their spirits. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
The rink itself is also half the regular size, meaning it is limited to three-on-three games.But you could not accuse the team of being short on spirit.Old and new players take to the iceAbout 20 people showed up to a practice match on Thursday night, all with various levels of experience under their belts. We play in a Perth league and we’d love to come up and play some matches’,” Mr Hunnam said.Mr Hunnam’s colleagues tell him he is crazy for what he did next — he took them up on the offer, and set about cobbling together Darwin’s first playing ice hockey team.”I get a lot of comments that are like ‘Ice hockey in Darwin — you’re not serious?'” he said.The city will be sitting at about 30 degrees when the two teams go head-to-head in the first of two exhibition matches on Friday night.Then there is the issue of not having an official captain or team name. “I even had to organise with the airline to carry the extra weight,” she said. (ABC Radio Darwin: Jesse Thompson)
Mr Hunnam asked him, “Are you coming out of retirement Beat?”But Mr Erismann was emphatic.”He said ‘I’m not going to risk the undefeated status that we had. A group of gung-ho Darwinites slipping their way around the rink might have been expected, but apart from a few high-speed tumbles, the team has a surprising level of sophistication.Chris Baillie, who decided to give the sport a crack after spectating casually for years, was breaking a sweat at half-time.”I’m slowly getting better, but it’s my first time playing ice hockey,” he said.”I’ve done a little bit of skating, but nothing with this sort of intensity or with this number of people on the ice.”

Photo:
Chris Baillie has never played ice hockey before, but he was happy to give it a shot. In its 32 years in the game, the now-retired team never suffered a loss.Its winning streak hinges on a minor detail few people in Darwin are concerned about — it is only undefeated because its opponents never turned up to a match.But that changed a few weeks ago when the Perth Whitehawks put a call in to Jeff Hunnam, who runs Darwin’s only permanent ice skating rink. He dug it out of the cupboard when he heard there was cause to wear it.”This is a real out-of-left field surprise for a lot of people up here, but it’s fantastic to have and I hope it hangs around for a while,” he said.Figure skating coach Tracey McIntosh was in Brisbane when she heard about the Darwin team, and raced around the city retrieving all the necessary gear.

NO1-NOAH – Stuck On Stupid

Baby you hiding, baby misguided
I just know how to find her
Say you about it, but you so quiet
Round like how do you hide it
Bumpin’ and grindin’
Ride it, slide it, grind it
I keep it silent, think that you got me
I cannot fight it, baby, think that I like it
I can’t one night it
I’m not the type to but I think I gotta wife her
Nobody like her, it’s perfect timing
Tell me, how did I find this
Can’t go without it, can’t go without it
Baby, can’t go without it
Stop with the hiding
Stop with the hiding, just be about it, oh
My friends telling me get rid of you
Try and find somebody new
But I can’t just get away from you
But
I ain’t good at taking advice
I ain’t accept that at all
I ain’t good at taking advice
But I’m good at taking falls
I just wonder what you did to me
To make me fall in love
To make me feel like I need you
And I can’t have no one else

Do you know about feelings at all, I feel you don’t
You the reason why I always gotta keep a coat

I thought that I would be able to get thru this
Thought that I’d be able just to do this
Never thought that I could be so clueless

These girls out here living in the moment
I don’t gotta tell you that I’m broken
You’re the only one that ever noticed, noticed

Remember losing peace

Kylie Minogue – Dreams

[Verse 1]
To have any man but to love only one
To wake with the moon and sleep with the sun
To be a sinner, a saint, a lover and friend
To know a beginning but never an end
To fly in the ocean, swim in the skys
Believer in truth, defendant of lies
To be of purest love, the deepest pain
To be lost and found again and again and again
[Chorus]
These are the dreams
Of an impossible princess
These are the dreams
Of an impossible princess
[Verse 2]
To know the power of wealth and poverty
To taste every moment and try everything
To be hailed as a hero, branded a fool
Believe in the sacred and break every rule
To give in to pleasure with no boundaries
Living in chaos and harmony
To feel the touch of a man, a woman’s caress
To know the limits of torture and tenderness

[Chorus]
These are the dreams
Of an impossible princess
These are the dreams
Of an impossible princess
[Bridge]
Man and woman, boy and girl
They want to escape this world
Man and woman, boy and girl
They want to escape this world
[Chorus]
(These are the dreams)
Of an impossible princess
(These are the dreams)
Of an impossible princess
It’s a way of dealing with all the feeling
Keep believing in dreams
Of an impossible princess
It’s a way of dealing with all the feeling
Keep believing in dreams
Of an impossible princess

Kygo – Permanent (feat. JHart)

You just
You made it look easy
It’s like you didn’t feel it
Not like I do
I followed
I followed the pieces
I tried to receive it
To when it was good
Oh look, I don’t wanna feel like somebody
While nothing else ever feels like your body
‘Cause we held the world, we were turning it
For a moment there, it was permanent
I drive the streets, when you told me your secrets
We made mistakes, but we both we didn’t mean it
And we held the world, we were turning it
For a moment there, it was permanent
I’ll bet
I’ll bet you’re in Seoul
Dancing in slow-mo
With someone new
I cared I
I hope you’ll never forget it
The night’s just too weary
Like all your tattoos
Oh look, I don’t wanna feel like somebody
While nothing else ever feels like your body
‘Cause we held the world, we were turning it
For a moment there, it was permanent
I drive the streets, when you told me your secrets
We made mistakes, but we both we didn’t mean it
And we held the world, we were turning it
For a moment there, it was permanent
Permanent

For a moment there

YoungBoy Never Broke Again – GG (Remix) (feat. A Boogie With The Hoodie)

[Intro]
Free my niggas out the can
Nigga, this that crazy man
I ain’t even put no effort, crazy man
[Verse]
Draw down with that Glock, bitch don’t make no sound
Say somethin’ and get shot, bitch face down to the ground
I ain’t got no respect, you might think I’m dumb
I’m just 17, with a whole lotta money
Fuck you, bitch I hopped up out that coupe
Tell me hoe, if you don’t like me why you worried about what I do
See the car I pulled up in so you might think I flew
(Tell me why you say that Youngboy?)
Cause bitch I’m flyer than your dude
If you think I fuck with that lil hoe, then you a fool
I ain’t got no education, I dropped out of school
No security with me so I’m strapped up with that tool
Try to take my jewelry off and you gon’ make the news
Cuban links around my neck, it cost me 22
Audemar Piguet, coulda’ went and bought a school
Went to Neiman Marcus for my pants and my shoes
Five thousands dollars, what I paid for the whole fit
I just took a loss so I’m goin’ on a heist
Hold a tool in yo face like chino do a bike
Too much money on me for to raise my hands and fight
Thunder in my clip, fuck around get hit with light

Draw down with that Glock, bitch don’t make no sound
Say somethin’ and get shot, bitch face down to the ground
I ain’t got no respect, you might think I’m dumb
I’m just 17, with a whole lotta money
Fuck you, bitch I hopped up out that coupe
Tell me hoe, if you don’t like me why you worried about what I do
You ain’t see the car I pulled up in so you might think I flew
(Tell me why you say that Youngboy?)
Cause bitch I’m flyer than your dude

Hopsin – Witch Doctor

Somebody better call the witch doctor (witch doctor)
Wi-wi-wi-witch doctor! Savage! [Verse 1]
Look, I ain’t gon’ lie to you motherfuckers, I’m bad business
I ain’t that industry nigga who always ass-kissin’
I got mad disses for anybody who askin’ and
Y’all can sit and pout as you watch how I handle cash gettin’
And bitch, I made hits, day to day in the basement
Slavin’ away, playin’ the game, makin’ my name fizz
And lowkey I been checkin’ to see how Dame is
And without Hop, I’m sorry nigga, you ain’t shit
Do somethin’, got you goose bumpin’
Who fuckin’ with me? Slow down, nigga! Slow down, nigga! Have a blast, I’m an avalanche
Mashin’ fans down on your master plan with a planned attack
It’s like a massive pack of elephants, charge you with cataracts
So call an ambulance, I’m the straw that just broke the camel’s back
You don’t want problems, I’m serious, I am too sick (yeah, yeah)
I promise I ain’t delirious, I can prove it (yeah, yeah)
Think twice, nigga, I’m eerie as Tyson’s toothpick
Undercover Prodigy, visualize the movement, nigga
This is a brand new side of me that’s emergin’
Evil and purgin’, I am more deceivin’ in person
Screamin’ and cursin’, fuck the world with penis insertions
I’ma feel this way until the day I’m leavin’ this Earth, man
[Hook]
Ooh, you don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass? [Chorus]
Soek jy ‘n sangoma, soek jy ‘n sangoma, a sangoma
I can show you the way if you want to know
Witch doctor, witch doctor
Soek jy ‘n sangoma, soek jy ‘n sangoma, a sangoma
Somebody better call the witch doctor (witch doctor)
Wi-wi-wi-witch doctor! Slow down, nigga! Fuck around and break you off proper
You gon’ need to see the fuckin’ witch doctor (sangoma)
Nigga, peep game, no shame, I won’t ever change
You don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass? I’m rude, rugged and lovin’ intrude ruckus
Too stubborn, I got the motherfuckin’ juice chuggin’
You think you runnin’ shit but you really my cute puppet
Just danglin’ from a string, I was made to disrupt the peace
Don’t care if you poppin’, bitch, you basic as fuck to me
I’ve been labeled a fuckin’ beast, it’s a fatal corrupt disease
Don’t be callin’ tryna sit for a bagel and cup of tea, my nigga
[Hook]
Ooh, you don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass? Savage! [Verse 3]
Listen, I ain’t gon’ pretend to be the best
I don’t give a fuck about ever being politically correct
Look at the fans that all my misery has blessed
As long as I’m breathin’ I ain’t gon’ give emcees a rest
Music can make a struggle seem cool — it’s not
Do you know what the fuck I’ve been through? Slow down, nigga! Slow down, nigga! Slow down, nigga! Slow down, nigga! Fuck around and break you off proper
You gon’ need to see the fuckin’ witch doctor (sangoma)
Nigga, peep game, no shame, I won’t ever change
You don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass? Slow down, nigga! [Chorus]
Soek jy ‘n sangoma, soek jy ‘n sangoma, a sangoma
I can show you the way if you want to know
Witch doctor, witch doctor
Soek jy ‘n sangoma, soek jy ‘n sangoma, a sangoma
Savage! Fuck around and break you off proper
You gon’ need to see the fuckin’ witch doctor (sangoma)
Nigga, peep game, no shame, I won’t ever change
You don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass? [Verse 2]
I’m the dirty scoundrel, livin’ life on the down-low
I’ve been to Hell, I sat with the man of the household
My heart froze, but you don’t wanna know how cold
I feel like the one, but I ain’t what you should count on
Buckle up, nigga! [Intro]
Undercover Prodigy
Come on! Why you actin’ like a badass? A lot
There is an evil me that speaks to me every evening
I tried to get rid of him but he rules my thoughts
[Hook]
Ooh, you don’t want the backlash
Why you actin’ like a badass?

Gwen Stefani – You Make It Feel Like Christmas (feat. Blake Shelton) (Lyric Video)

I want to thank the storm that brought the snow (uh uh)
Thanks to the string of lights that make it glow (uh)
But I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
It barely took a breath to realize
We’re gonna be a classic for all time
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Thought I was done for, thought that love had died
But you came along I swear you saved my life
And I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Sweet gingerbread made with molasses
My heart skipped and I reacted
Can’t believe that this is happening
Like a present sent from God
Sleigh bells singing hallelujah
Stars are shining on us, too
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
I never thought I’d find a love like this
But I found forever in that very first kiss
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas
Oh oh (oh thank you baby)
I wanna thank you, baby
You make it feel like Christmas

Mistah F.A.B. – Can’t Kill Hyphy

Boy, I’m just doin’ what I had to do (What you do?)
Bay on my back like Bubbles on Mike Jack
Hyphy comin’ back, a couple suckas ain’t gonna like that
I’m Han Solo, you know I had to strike back
Rest in peace to The Mac and The Jack, Keak be right back
[Chorus]
Yadadamean, fo’ sho, yadadamean, fo’ sheezy
This that ’06 slap, you beezy
In the building and I’m feelin’ like yee! Can’t kill hyphy like Keak Da Sneak
Still (Keep it super duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
I’m still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Super-duper-duper-duper-duper-duper hyphy

[Verse 3]
’06, this was big, no Bed-Stuy
Boy, I’m on your neck, to the neck, like a necktie
Just left my nigga Keak, crackin’ jokes by his bedside
He said "Fabby, burn them niggas down like Left Eye"
So I’m back in the building like I forgot somethin’
Put your hands up like I’m ’bout to pop somethin’
Niggas ain’t hyphy, they really need to stop frontin’
They really ain’t shooters, ’cause niggas ain’t dropped nothin’
Put a pill in your life, change your attitude
I kept the door open, nigga, where’s the gratitude? Man, what is it? Brodie actin’ like a bitch, too much estrogen
"Fabby Davis, oh my god, you’re back, yo, we love you!"
We on that hyphy shit again, uhhh, fuck you
[Chorus]
Yadadamean, fo’ sho, yadadamean, fo’ sheezy
This that ’06 slap, you beezy
In the building and I’m feelin’ like yee! I heard that
Been gettin’ lit, tell the world we want our word back (litty)
Niggas switch cliques, ride dick just to get on
Serve out of town ways, this The Town, don’t forget home
I’m so Oakland like Cindy on Soul Beat
Gingerbread House, Carijama, and LG
Now tell ’em don’t stop, keep goin’, keep goin’
Off champagne and cookies, I’m blowin’, I’m blowin’
Hold it down for the Bay reppin’ Oakland
Still super-duper hyphy, you know it
[Chorus]
Yadadamean, fo’ sho, yadadamean, fo’ sheezy
This that ’06 slap, you beezy
In the building and I’m feelin’ like yee! Nigga what? Can’t kill hyphy like Keak Da Sneak
Still (Keep it super duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
I’m still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Super-duper-duper-duper-duper-duper hyphy

Hyphy
Hyphy
Hyphy
Hyphy
Super-duper-duper-duper-duper-duper hyphy
Hyphy (Traxamillion)
Mistah F.A.B
[Verse 1]
This one for the king of the super duper
Keak get well, we gon’ shit like a pooper scooper
I’m ridin’ for you, brodie, like a super Uber
Super Soaker on deck, we got stupid shooters
Far as hyphy go, I ain’t gon’ let it die
Couldn’ta left it in the hands of a better guy
Fetty Wap on the game, lookin’ with my better eye
Tech grind, Chevron gas, unleaded, ah
Turned back up like a nigga never turned down
Hyphy like when a hood nigga get turned down (Fuck you, bitch)
From a bad bitch, fuck a bitch, I get the bag quick
Still cheezy-weezy, broke niggas on that mad shit
Bitch said she over me, then why the hell you textin’ then? Why you mad at dude? Can’t kill hyphy like Keak Da Sneak
Still (Keep it super duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
I’m still (Super, duper, duper, duper, can’t kill hyphy)
Super-duper-duper-duper-duper-duper hyphy

[Verse 2]
Hey, I don’t think they know, they some nerds
Shaboobalaboopy, that’s my word
Did on my first win what niggas don’t do until their third
Hyphy ain’t dead, them niggas just scared
Hands on the clock gettin’ turned back
Year 2006, where the herb at? The Bay fell off?
