She meets communities whose good humour and inventiveness will inspire and uplift. We love getting together for a bike ride,” Ms Scholes said.”One of the main things we really want to do is get ourselves out there in the community as far as family and domestic violence is concerned — raising awareness, suicide prevention and awareness.”She said it was important that PMS had a presence for women feeling helpless in remote areas. It’s just absolutely amazing.”Post the mining boom — well, we’ll still have mining obviously — but there’s a lot of opportunities for big businesses and small businesses and for just the local community.”Watch Back Roads on ABC TV 8pm MondayPast episodes or extras are on iView or at www.abc.net.au/backroads

The Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls have a waiting list of about 500 people wanting to take up training. Where else would you rather be?”And although the mining boom may seem over for now, Ms Jones said locals needed to remain at the forefront of decisions as jobs and wages were on the decline.”The mining industry I think really does need to employ local people. (Back Roads: Ron Ekkel)
Leah Scholes founded the Pilbara Motorcycle Sisters — a group of strong women who are empowering other women with community work, and tackling cultural issues such as preventing domestic violence.”We’re just a really great bunch of ladies. All of that money then stays in town and it goes back into the community,” she said.”So rather than the fly-in, fly-out people, to employ local people would be a huge benefit.”I think the Pilbara means endless opportunities. (Back Roads: Dai Cookes)
“The Pilbara is a tough place … it really is … you’re a long way from the cities,” Ms Jones said.”During summer it’s really hot and hard up here and I think you either survive up here or you die.”You can break out of the box, out of the mould, it’s great. (Back Roads: Ron Ekkel)

The Karratha-based, not-for-profit organisation has now led to two pink trucks being seen among the red hills and dirt on deserted outback roads.It brings newly licensed truck drivers — men and women — into the industry, giving them real-life work with 160 hours of on-the-road training.Ms Jones said there had been mixed reviews when the pink trucks first began moving on the Pilbara roads.”To start off with there was a few noses out of joint up here because we had pink trucks, but they got used to it,” she said.As time progressed, there was more demand, with as many as 500 people currently on a waiting list to join driver training.

Heather Jones created the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls to promote women in the truck-driving industry. From trucks to motorbikes, groups such as the Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls (PHHG) and Pilbara Motorcycle Sisters (PMS) are reinforcing positive changes in outback Australia.Heather Jones, a trailblazer in the truck-driving industry, has been living in the Pilbara for more than 27 years.”In 2013, or 2014 I think it was, there was a group of us girls in Karratha — 30 female truck drivers,” she told ABC TV’s Back Roads program.”We decided to become more visible and just actually promote women in the industry.”We threw a few names around and came up with Pilbara Heavy Haulage Girls, and that was just the banner to promote the women in the industry.”Ms Jones recognised that women currently made up just 1 per cent of the nation’s heavy vehicle driver workforce.

Pink roadies keep on truckin’A colleague of Ms Jones, truck driver Mel Murphy started her job 12 years ago.She said it felt good to be taking on the role, despite disbelief from others that women could drive trucks.”For so long it’s been a male-dominated industry, and slowly over the years it’s starting to change,” Ms Murphy said.”It feels excellent … I love the challenge and yeah, every job you do is different.”Ms Murphy said she originally copped a bit of flak when she told men about her job.”I’d tell ’em I drive trucks … ‘Oh, you drive trucks?’ … I went ‘Yeah I drive trucks’ and they’re like ‘You actually drive?’ and I said ‘Yeah, I actually drive the trucks. (Back Roads: Ron Ekkel)
From two wheels to a dozenFor some women in the Pilbara, there is a crossover between groups, making it just a matter of how many wheels to ride or drive. You have a look at the land and the variety and everything we’ve got here. (Back Roads: Ron Ekkel)
While women truck drivers are sought after, Ms Jones’s latest student of the PHHG program, Tangiora Hinaki, is a local radio presenter, singer-songwriter, filmmaker and mother of eight children — who now is taking up the challenge of driving the pink trucks.”I’m already a motorcycle sister and this is just like the next step,” Ms Hinaki said.”You know it’s all about, you only live once, and life is a journey and I love learning and picking up new skills.”Women like Ms Hinaki look up to Ms Jones as a role model and aspire to be fully trained.”She’s very clear, succinct, and I think she’s got a very gentle approach,” she said.

Boom day downturnAlthough Ms Jones has been driving trucks for almost three decades, she said the women in groups such as PHHG and PMS represent what a robust part of the world the Pilbara is. “Especially if they’ve come from other areas and they are new to the Pilbara perhaps, and they might not be knowing that many people … the main thing is that we are there.”But unlike truckies in the area, Ms Scholes is adamant that she does not take any flak from the blokes for women on bikes.”None whatsoever.

Fremantle digs up past before building new future

Fremantle 6160
(ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
Old church to be uncoveredAround the corner, four squares of the mall that run between St John’s Anglican Church and the Town Hall have been fenced off also.It is hoped that when they dig down they will find the old footings of the first St John’s Church.The first church was built in 1840 and demolished 40 years later. Then we keep going down.”Uncovering the physical evidenceThe archaeologists already know what used to be on the site from written records — and now they are finding the physical evidence. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
“It’s a systematic process,” archaeologist Fiona Hook explained.”We have used a mechanical excavator to take off all the yellow sand with the blue metal at the top, that is modern fill. Photo:
Archaeologists are uncovering layers of past buildings. that was demolished in the 1950s.”Immediately out the front of the town forecourt everyone has been walking over the remains of the blacksmith farrier shop.”You can see the black material with brick inclusions. (Supplied: City of Fremantle)
Most of the stone was reused in the construction of the new St John’s, which opened in 1882 and was built just metres away from the former building; High Street was built over the footings of the old church.The city knows the foundations are there, somewhere.”The city wants to have accurate plans so they know where they are so they are not going to be impacted by the new building,” Ms Hook explained.”Then they are planning, with the refurbishment of the mall, to display the archaeology under glass; the foundations will be excavated and displayed with lights.”Russell Kingdom is the director of Kings Square project, which will see a $270 million redevelopment, including new council buildings, a library, a new mall and city square.He said the council insisted that developers building on historic sites conduct archaeological investigations before they commence work — so it was important that council did the same to set an example.”We are going above and beyond what we need to do, partly because we are curious to see what we can reveal,” Mr Kingdom said.”But it’s also an opportunity to perhaps display some of the artefacts that we might uncover in the new building.”

Fiona Hook has been getting down and dirty as part of the dig. The blacksmith and farriers were “the workshops of their age, they made sure that everything was being transported quickly and easily through the City of Fremantle and so this was a main hub”, although little is known about them, Ms Hook added.”Through the material we are pulling out we can get an understanding of what they were doing here and also the extent of their operations.”

Photo:
The team hopes to uncover the old footings of the first St John’s Church in Kings Square. But before the wrecking balls move in, the council has commissioned archaeologists to investigate three sites around Kings Square for evidence of the town’s early history. Photo:
The first St John’s Church in Fremantle opened in 1843. “When we find features, we clean them up and try and understand what it is. “When we come down to what we consider an archaeological deposit with artefacts in it, this black layer, we then get out the shovels and trowels and buckets. (Supplied: City of Fremantle/Kerry Hill ) This material is iron and copper and we have about 50 horse shoes coming out.”Dig goes beyond the history booksDigging up the site also offers a chance to discover some of the detailed history of the town that official accounts do not cover.”Often the written history deals with famous people and big buildings, it doesn’t necessarily deal with everyday life and that is where archaeology comes into its own,” Ms Hook said. (ABC Radio Perth: Emma Wynne)
“We know that on this corner in the 1850s there was a house and a shop and yard,” Ms Hook said.”In the late 1800s there was a blacksmith farrier operating here.”In 1929 the house was demolished and the centennial hall was built … Fremantle council is taking the opportunity to dig up some of its past before construction begins on the multi-million-dollar redevelopment of the town centre.The Kings Square project will see the 1960s council library administration block torn down and replaced.

The benefits of adopting an older dog
Rather than stick to one name, Bella now has about a dozen nicknames and “responds to all of them”.”She’s got ears like a bat, so I call her Bella Bat’s Ears, and we shorten that to, ‘C’mon Bats, let’s go’ and she understands that.”Listener Ken messaged the station to say cat owners should not worry too much about changing their pet’s names.”It just doesn’t matter what you call a cat … “She was called Trixie and it just didn’t appeal to me for whatever reason,” Dr Seksel said.”She just didn’t look like a Trixie so I changed her name.”ABC Radio Melbourne listener Russell said when he got his now 13-year-old border collie he had planned to name her Ella after Ella Fitzgerald.”But when she arrived we said, ‘She’s not an Ella … they absolutely ignore you anyway.” Photo:
Adopted pets often have their names changed by their new owners. Read the stories in the comments. There are many reasons you might be considering renaming your pet.Maybe you adopted it from an animal shelter, maybe you let your youngest child name it and are now regretting that decision, maybe you named it Doggy McDogface but have decided that is just so 2017.The good news is that changing your pet’s name will likely be more confusing for you than it is for them.Animal behaviour specialist Dr Kersti Seksel said changing a pet’s name was “probably not” going to cause it to have an identity crisis.She said most pets already responded to a range of different names.”Most people have nicknames for their animals and the animals respond,” Dr Seksel told ABC Radio Melbourne’s Jacinta Parsons and Sami Shah.She said the way we talked to our pets was just as important as what we named them.”I think it’s our tone of voice, our body language, what we do using gestures with our hands, the way we smile at them.”I think they respond to that just as much as their name.”

We asked if you had ever renamed a pet. (Supplied: Kate Esser)
Changing a pet’s name nothing newDr Seksel said it was common for people to change their pets’ names and that she’d even done it herself when she adopted a pet whose name she didn’t like. we’ll call her Bella’,” he said.

Who says that I can’t be tough? That I just can’t be loved? Crystal heart in the graveyard
I think it’s time for a New Start
Blinded eyes to my surprise
You love to see what you can’t find
Flightest bird, I know you’re hurt
it’s not the life that you deserve. Stepped on cracks, and broken backs
My mother knows I love her so
Pepped-up shoes, they will make do
These places I’d like to go to
Day-dreaming what could’ve been
but I know I’m not made to win. [Alternative music]

Would you had me out to lay? I think enough’s enough! Be a diamond in the rough?

Release the brainstorm to make your motherfucking brain warm
A strange form, something kind of lyrical

Off the forehead, everything is real
Biggie put me on this joint, so I’ma be the big wheel
Watch it spin, hey dad, placed your bet on seven
Peace to 106, 108, 110 and 111th
Hey Biggie, I understand you’re from Brooklyn
With .22s in your shoes, yo, keep this joint cooking

Biggie Smalls, the millionaire, the mansion, the yacht
The two weed spots, the two hot Glocks
Huh, that’s how I got the weed spot
I shot dread in the head, took the bread and the Lambsbread
Lil’ Gotti got the shotty to your body
So don’t resist or you might miss Christmas
I tote guns, I make number runs
I give MCs the runs dripping
When I throw my clip in the AK, I slay from far away
Everybody hit the D-E-C-K
My slow flows remarkable, peace to Matteo
Now we smoke weed like Tony Montana sniff the llello

Hold back your mom ’cause I came for your daughter
Is it time for slaughter, or should I pull the plug? [Intro: The Notorious B.I.G.]

They wanna get me out outty i’m just getting older
And i don’t take for granted pray i get it lower
They keep moving low profile presidential like a soldier postar
Make the best in ups and downs in life like a rollercoaster
Know my grandma looking down on me shining like a postar
Know your baby getting older and i’m getting older
Sorry my heart getting colder niggas getting hoe’r but i know you see i did all that i said that i was gonna
Made all the sacrifices even when i ain’t wanna

In your eyes, I’m alive

Something so unusual in your eyes
I know I’m home (yeah)
Every tear, every fear
Gone with the thought of you
Changing what I thought I knew
I’ll be yours for a thousand lives

Keith Urban – Parallel Line (Lyric Video)

[Verse 1]
You said "I love you" to me
I don’t know what that means
So frozen my feet
People use it too carelessly
And I couldn’t believe
That you would dive in so deep
And you said perfectly
Everything I’ve been feeling for you, and about you
It’s time to break the chains that held me back from you
[Chorus]
So come on and
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don’t mind
Just please don’t misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby, be mine now
Maybe it’s time we put our hearts in a parallel line
[Verse 2]
Well I was never the type
To put it all on the line
But I’ve been changing my mind since you opened my eyes
It was the way that the light
Picked you out of that night
Then you were right by my side
Put a soul in my body
And now it’s time to close the space between the two of us

[Chorus]
So come on and
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don’t mind
Just please don’t misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby, be mine now
Maybe it’s time we put our hearts in a parallel line
Oh baby it’s time
Oh it’s time
[Chorus]
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don’t mind
Just please don’t misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby, be mine now
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, I literally don’t mind
Just please don’t misplace it
Take a little bit of my
Heart tonight
No, baby be mine now
Baby, be mine now

[Outro]
Maybe it’s time we put our hearts in a parallel line
Put our hearts in a parallel line
Put our hearts in a parallel line

Jade Bird – Lottery

[Bridge]
Hold on, my dear
Hold on real tight
It’s just a numbers game
In my mind
And we’ve been here a thousand times
A thousand times
A thousand–
[Chorus]
You used to tell me that
Love is a lottery
But you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
You used to say that
Love is a game
But you got your numbers
And you’ll play it anyway
You used to tell me that
Love is a lottery
But you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
You used to tell me that
Love is a lottery
But you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
Are you still betting on me? [Verse 1]
I was 19 and you were 23 and
We stayed in Number 4 Ferdinand Street
We spent five talking about our lives
But we’d talked like that about a thousand times
And I’m bored of all that
[Chorus]
You used to tell me that
Love is a lottery
And you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
You used to say that
Love is a game
But you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
[Verse 2]
I’ll tell you about a guy
That I’ve been with
And you ask "How old as he?"
And I laugh "26"
"Nah but he’s thirty
How messed up is that?"
"Oh, forget it" he says
"I’m a jealous man
And I don’t want to talk about that"

[Chorus]
You used to tell me that
Love is a lottery
And you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
You used to say that
Love is a game
But you got your numbers
And you’re betting on me
Are you still betting on me?

Y tienes el toque, toque, toque
Pareces una estrella formando el alboroto
Tienes el toque, toque, toque
Se cae el internet cuando subes una foto

[Pre-Coro]
Cuando yo la vi (dímelo, baby girl)
Dije: "Si esa mujer fuera para mí." (pa’ mí esa baby)
Perdóname, te lo tenía que decir
[Coro]
‘Tás dura, dura, dura, dura, dura
Que estás dura, mano arriba porque tú te ves bien
‘Tás dura, mamacita, te fuiste de nivel
Dura, mira como brilla tu piel
‘Tás dura, dímelo, dímelo, ¿cómo es que e’? ‘Tás dura, yo te doy un veinte de diez
‘Tás dura, dura, dura
[Puente]
Me gusta como mueve ese ram-pam-pam
Mi mente maquineando en un plan-plan-plan
Si me deja, en esa curva le doy pam-pam
Cuál es tu receta no sé, ‘tá pa’ comerte bien
Me gusta como mueve ese ram-pam-pam
Mi mente maquineando en un plan-plan-plan
Si me deja, en esa curva le doy pam-pam
Tu belleza retumba, las otras pa’ la tumba
[Verso 2]
Uno, dos y tres vamo’ a darle
La envidia que se calle
Saludos a todas las nenas que paralizan la calle
¿Cómo tú te llamas? ‘Tás dura, yo te doy un veinte de diez
‘Tás dura, dura, dura
[Verso 1]
Tu eres la máquina, la máquina de baile
Si no tiene’ a nadie vente pa’ mi’ brazos, caile
Ese perfume se siente en el aire
Algo como Argentina, tú me traes los Buenos Aires
Está poderosa, media escandalosa
Habrán muchas mujeres pero tú eres otra cosa
Si fuera un delito eso de que estás hermosa
Te arresto en mi cama y te pongo las esposas

[Pre-coro]
Tienes el toque, toque, toque
Miren el material, Edición Especial
Tienes el toque, toque, toque
Perdóname, te lo tenía que decir
[Coro]
‘Tás dura, dura, dura, dura, dura
Que estás dura, mano arriba porque tú te ves bien
‘Tás dura, mamacita, te fuiste de nivel
Dura, mira como brilla tu piel

[Intro: Jeon]
Yo
Jeon, yah
[Verso 1: J Balvin]
Vamo’, vamo’ a romper (hey)
No hay tiempo pa’ perder (hey)
De la disco pal’ motel (uh)

Baila y todos le hacen coro (uh)
Te deja marca’o como el zorro
No pierdo mi tiempo, es oro
Todo me lo gasto, no ahorro (uh)

[Verso 2: Anitta]
Caliente hasta en la nevera
En la cima sin escalera
La sensación de la favela
Salió a romper fronteras
Las mujeres como yo que no se quitan
Que de lejos se identifican
Siempre están cuando las solicitan
Machika que yo soy tu chica
[Puente: J Balvin]
Representa tu bandera
Mi música es nueva era
A mi me dan play donde sea
Machuca que estás que te quemas
[Pre-Coro: Anitta, J Balvin]
Estoy muy borracha y no puedo más, y no puedo más
Estoy muy borracho y no puedo más, y no puedo más
[Coro: Jeon, J Balvin]

Dale lento, el golpe avisa (uh)
Mi no conoce Julissa (ah)
Vengo con la buena vibra (haan)
Con J Balvin y con Anitta
Machika, machika, machika (machika)
Turbo, nitro en la máquina (machika)
‘Tamo en vivo mami, ya tu sa
Que hubo, dale, vamo’ a machuca’

Cuban Doll – Don’t Like Me

Cause they can’t get a profit
It’s a shortage in their pocket
I should pay their way through college
Bitches don’t like me
But they scared to get it popping
Once you go there, ain’t no stopping
I get money, I got options
Bitches don’t like me
This 4, 5 bitch obnoxious huh! I guess these hoes mad, that I went up on the price
You looking so sad, like it happened over night
But I know your broke ass still tryna get some stripes
Bitch! You ain’t gon’ get one up off me
Bitches don’t like me? Aye, these bitches they don’t like me
You know that bitch broke
Why would you make her your wifey
Said they don’t like me? We’ll get your block put up
Slide down, start dropping some
[Outro]
They love you in public
But be hating in private
They love you in public
But be hating in private
They love you in public
But be hating in private
They love you in public
But be hating in private [Hook]
Bitches don’t like me! I’m somewhere not caring
On a plane on my way to an island
They love you in public
But be hating in private
These bitches don’t like me
They silent, they trying
A bitch try me, gon’ get violent
Fuck rhyming, fuck a song
These niggas is liars
Aye, and these hoes ain’t no better
These bitches don’t like me? Hoes gon’ hate, hating hoes hate forever
You ain’t no go getter, bitch you looking so bitter
I’m looking so better, fuck some shit you don’t like! Cause they can’t get a profit
It’s a shortage in their pocket
I should pay their way through college
Bitches don’t like me
But they scared to get it popping
Once you go there, ain’t no stopping
I get money, I got options
Bitches don’t like me
This 4, 5 bitch obnoxious huh! That’s a personal problem! Whatever! We’ll get your block put up
Slide down, start dropping some
[Verse]
Bitch! And you know it ain’t no stopping
Bitch don’t care if you don’t rock with us
You got your feelings bottled up! Exciting! Bitch if you scared, go to church
Pray about it! I’m out here making thousands
Bout to make my way about it

[Hook]
Bitches don’t like me!
