Kardashian and her younger sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner were spotted on the set of Ocean’s Eight in New York on Tuesday where they filmed a scene on what is believed to be a fictional Met Gala red carpet.

Dressed in floor-length gowns and velour tracksuits, it’s understood the trio will play themselves in the all-female sequel to George Clooney’s 2001 crime romp, Ocean’s Eleven.

The film is one of the first projects 36-year-old Kardashian has undertaken since being robbed at gunpoint during Paris Fashion Week in October.

The cameo is an interesting move from Kardashian considering Ocean’s Eight centres on an elaborate height such as the one Kardashian was implicated in.

Kardashian spent three months out of the spotlight and remained completely silent on social media until earlier this month. Filming on Keeping Up With the Kardashians was also put on hold.

But it appears the mother-of-two is back with a vengeance. The reality TV star shared behind the scenes video from the Ocean’s Eight film set on Snapchat along with her younger sisters.

The reality TV star was also seen delving into her traumatic robbery in a trailer for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, premiering in March.

The extended Kardashian family aren’t the only stars making a cameo in the 2018 film. It’s understood Carpool Karaoke host James Corden, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and actress Katie Holmes have also been spotted on set.

Ocean’s Eight is a spin-off of the Ocean’s trilogy of films and features an all-female cast of Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson and Mindy Kaling.

According to her police testimony leaked this week, Kardashian was restrained with plastic cables and put in a bathtub by masked robbers who stole more than $US10 million worth of jewellery, including her engagement ring.

Her first public engagement was earlier this week in Dubai where the celebrity doyen hosted a class with her makeup artist.

War of words over emergency unit

20/03/2019 Posted by admin

A war of words has erupted over claims ambulances were diverted away from Nepean Hospital this week. Picture: Woolf PetersThe head of Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District has denied NSW Opposition claims ambulances were diverted away from Nepean Hospital during high volumes of emergency department presentations this week.

Opposition Health Spokesman Walt Secord released a statement sayingthe hospital was taken off the NSW Patient Allocation Matrix,meaning cases brought to the emergency unit by ambulance were diverted to other hospitals from 3.30am to 5.30am on Sunday, January 16.

A statement issued by the health district admitted the hospital had experienced “extremely high demand”, with 217 presentations to its emergency department on Sunday.

However,Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District chief executive Kay Hyman later denied patients had been diverted away from Nepean.

“Let me make this clear – not a single patient was diverted away from Nepean Hospital, not a single ambulance,”she said. “At no stage was Nepean Hospital on what is being referred to as a ‘bypass’ or, ‘off the matrix’.

“When Nepean hospital experienced a high number of patients arriving through the emergency department on Sunday to alleviate some pressure on Monday morning, the health system immediately enacted contingency planning to ensure it was protected in the event the surge continued past expected levels.

“In the event Nepean Hospital continued to see an influx of seriously unwell patients the contingency plans would allow for some ambulance patients to be transported to surrounding hospitals if required. This is an important point, at all times the matrix provides ambulance with multiple hospitals as an option.

“Seriously or critically unwell patients are always seen first. In fact, at Nepean Hospital, one patient arriving by ambulance was in a critical condition.Not only did that patient receive incredible care from the paramedics who attended him, he arrived without delay and was triaged and under the care of doctors immediately.”

Mr Secord said he had been advised patients were “transported past Nepean Hospital” onto other facilities, and demanded an explanation from the state government.

“In an emergency situation, every minute counts. This meant that patients were transferred to other hospitals, adding extra time to their journey to hospital,” he said.

Local state and federal MPs Prue Car (Londonderry) and Emma Husar (Lindsay) also accused the government of “apathy and inaction” over Nepean Hospital, which is one of the busiest in the statewith more than 68,000 patients a year coming into theemergency department.

Of those, nearly half –or 47.4 per cent of patients – wait longer than four hours for treatment.

Ms Hyman said Nepean Hospital achieved an Ambulance Transfer of Care of 95 per cent despite the high number of presentations on Sunday, meaning that 95 per centof all ambulances were offloaded within 30 minutes.

“The target is 90 per cent,” she said.

Penrith MP Stuart Ayres also hit back at Labor, saying its record on the hospital was “a joke”.

“Labor built an emergency department that was too small to start with and now the Liberals have to fix it,” he said in a statement.

“Labor’s current policy is to rip over $200 million out of the hospital budget. You simply can’t trust Labor to deliver for Nepean Hospital, they never have before and now they want to cut funds from it again.”

Do not leave pets in hot parked cars

20/03/2019 Posted by admin

Two dogs have died of avoidable heat stress in NSW last week, prompting the RSPCA to plead with pet owners to not leave dogs in parked cars – even in the shade.One of the dogs died in a car inSydneyon Thursday after being locked in an underground car park with the windows wound down – a common misconception that leaving a dog in a car parked in the shade or with the windows down is safe.
Nanjing Night Net

“It’s apparent some people are just not getting the message that a parked car is no place for a dog. It can be lethal, as we see all too often,” said RSPCA NSW chief inspector David OShannessy.

“It only takes six minutes for an animal to die from heat stroke. Cars parked in the sun can reach temperatures in excess of 80 degrees Celsius, and can remain dangerously hot even if the windows are open. Evidently, even cars parked in the shade – even in an underground carpark – can reach lethal temperatures. A dog cannot sweat in these conditions and panting increases the heat in the car.”

The scorching heat wave that has been plaguing the state is set to continue this week, with high 30s inSydney, and 40s in the west of the state, prompting fears of further deaths. RSPCA NSW is urging pet owners to plan ahead – don’t take your dog with you in the car unless absolutely vital. Make appropriate arrangements like leaving them at home in the air conditioning or a fan, and take extra precautions to help ensure animals have constant access to water and shade, as potentially lethal heat stress can develop extremely quickly in hot weather. Walking your dog during the heat of the day can result in excruciating blistered feet pads – wait until early morning or the evening.

“Cars left stationary in the sun become ovens. Ute trays also become extremely hot, so dogs can suffer a similar fate. If a dog dies from being left in a car, the owner can receive a $22,000 fine and a two-year prison sentence,”comments OShannessy.

“Parked cars aredeath traps. Just don’t do it.”

If animals are left in the backyard, they must have access shelter and water. If a dog is tethered they can become tangled and be unable to reach their water in case one gets knocked over. A dog can survive for a few days without food, but in this weather, if it has no shade or water it will die.

RSPCA NSW have offered the following tips to help keep pets cool this summer:

Heat stress looks like:

excessive panting for dogsany kind of panting or increase in breathing for cats, birds, rabbits, ferrets or Guinea Pigsdark red gums or tongueconfusionvomitingcollapseIf you think your pet is suffering from heat stroke, please urgently call anRSPCA veterinary hospitalor your local veterinarian.

Take the pledge to never leave your dog in a hot car:http://justsixminutes南京夜网419论坛/

Competitors from as far away as the Northern Territory, north coast of NSW and throughout this region featured in a series of events across Saturday and Sunday.

Event secretary Penny Macintosh said the raft of numbers resulted in outstanding competition.

“To have 971 competitors for the campdraft was just fantastic,” Macintosh said.

“We had two couples down from the NT who had a great time, competitors from Kempsey and as always a strongnumber of locals.

“There were representatives from Tamworth, Walcha, Quirindi, Gunnedah, Armidale, Glen Innes …it was a big weekend.”

Warm conditions greeted competitors on Saturday before a late shower took the sting out of the weather and made Sunday a little more comfortable.

Ultimate successwas spread near and far.

A number of categories made the 56km trek back to Tamworth.

Amiee Jamison was successful in the Maiden grade, with Rob Leach the star of the show in the Open class.

Julie Duff proved the standout performer in the Ladies division.

Armidale’s Tom Armytage emerged as a popular winner of the Novice category and Manilla campaigner Al Sullivan beat out an impressive field of Restricted Open rivals.

The Juvenile competition was taken out by Claudia Atfield from Scone and emerging Inverell talent Logan Berkley proved the Junior victor.

Berkley, who has been competing from a young age, was a hit with the crowd on hand to watch the dazzling action.

The Campdrafting community also came together magnificently on Saturday night with a special auction staged to raise funds for Jacob Coops-Blume.

Coops-Blume broke the C5 and C6 vertebrae in a motorcross accident in April last year, and is now a quadriplegic.

Macintosh said the result of the auction would help the Coops-Blume family with expenses.

“We raised $20,335 on Saturday night, which was just a magnificent result,” she said.

“Among the auction items were service fees and a series of other little gifts, including a canvas painting, a load of firewood, bales of hay, signed guitar featuring a series of country artists and a sculpture.

“It was great to see people come together to help Jacob and his family’s cause.”

The Nundle Campdraftthis year doubled as a key lead-up event to the annual National Finals in Tamworth, staged at AELEC Arena, from January 24-28.
