  1. Properties have been destroyed after almost 100 fires burned across NSW on the weekend, with teams expected to begin assessing the extent of the damage on Monday. As fires threatened townships near Dunedoo, Port Macquarie, Dondingalong and Mudgee on Sunday afternoon, Rural Fire Service commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said dozens of properties were under threat. "At this stage, we have got some unconfirmed reports of homes being lost, sheds being lost and machinery being lost, and other agricultural assets being lost on some of these fire grounds," he told reporters. Assessment teams will inspect affected areas on Monday to learn how many properties have been damaged, the RFS tweeted on Sunday night. At 10pm, emergency warnings remained in place for blazes near Mudgee and Dondingalong. The fire danger will remain very high on Monday in the Greater Hunter and surrounding fire areas, Bureau of Meteorology senior forecaster Neil Fraser told AAP. This is the saddest part....."You put the lives of our firefighters at risk. How dare anybody add to the extraordinary conditions we're experiencing." A 32-year-old man was arrested on Sunday afternoon after two fires were deliberately lit at Nabiac on the NSW north coast. Earlier, a 40-year-old man was arrested on the Central Coast after fire crews were called to a blaze in Mango Creek. A 13-year-old boy was arrested on Saturday afternoon after he allegedly started a grass fire in Orange that prompted the evacuation of an animal shelter. they are just waiting to access the damage as it is just early AM...guess with 86 still burning Urabray..Only 2 are of real concern..Mudgee and Dunedoo which has a 200klm fire edge.and burnt 41,650 hectares so far.. Hey..I told you bout the wakky weather yesterday....It is snowing on Mt Ossa... in Tassie...What is it since they cut the rope from Victoria and drifted off towards the Antarctic. http://www.stuff.co.nz/world/australia/89329622/australia-battles-bushfires-across-nsw-as-heatwave-continues

  3. At Valentino’s, a palatial club for late-night revellers Fri, 10 February 2017 Cristina Maza A new venue in the heart of Phnom Penh is aiming to offer Cambodia’s gay community something it doesn’t have yet: a place to dance until daybreak. “We’re going to have three floors of music blaring everything from 1970s, ’80s, and ’90s music to Rihanna,” says William Sanz, the club’s Spanish manager who has been working in the capital’s sizeable bar and restaurant scene for three years. Valentino’s Nightclub and Bistro opened in January and is already starting to attract a crowd. The club is bringing DJs from countries like Japan, and its owners hope it will eventually become one Asia’s best-known gay clubs. The city already has a handful of bars for the LGTB community, offering everything from burlesque shows by the city’s best drag queens to live music. But most of the venues are better for drinking beer and chatting with friends than for partying until sunrise. In contrast, Valentino’s will stay open until 4am on the weekends. There will be live music and DJs every Friday and Saturday. In an effort to attract its intended audience, the club’s gaping entrance flaunts a wall-to-wall rainbow flag, and most of the staff is gay. It also boasts a high-quality sound system and sleek new interior. Valentino’s hopes to offer a large, all-night LGBT dance space. Eli Lillis A lot of money has been invested in this spot, Sanz admits. After working in Ibiza’s fabled nightclubs for around two decades, he says he’s confident he knows the essential components to creating a successful club. “If you came here directly from Ibiza, you wouldn’t be missing anything,” he says. “We’ve put a lot of love into this.” Still, he knows from experience how hard it is to compete in Phnom Penh’s burgeoning party scene, and to attract a loyal clientele. In fact, he thinks it will take at least a year to get things off the ground. “Phnom Penh is a complicated market. There isn’t a lot of continuity. If you think Tuesday is your best day, undoubtedly there will be two Tuesdays when there is no business,” Sanz explains. “When it comes to restaurants and cafés, the market is pretty saturated. You really have to set yourself apart from the rest.” That’s why Valentino’s is designed differently from other clubs in the city. Aside from the dance floors, it has a quiet restaurant and outdoor terrace attached. “We wanted this to be a European concept,” Sanz explains. “In most of the clubs in Phnom Penh, if you’re tired of listening to the music then you have to leave. Here you can go out to the terrace, relax, smoke a cigarette, have something to eat.” He hopes the club’s unique style will attract a different crowd from the backpackers and revelry-seekers that frequent clubs like Pontoon and Vito. “We want cool people who want to have a good time,” he says with a smile. “It’s a gay club, but everyone is welcome.” Valentino’s is located at #31 Street 174. The nightclub is open from 10pm-4am, while the restaurant is open throughout the day. http://www.phnompenhpost.com/post-weekend/valentinos-palatial-club-late-night-revellers?utm_content=bufferc6a65&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

  5. Yes..People don't factor in the heat index either......... ....................................................................................... Heatwave Hell is HERE! Sydney To Hit 44C Today and Get Even Hotter On The Weekend Sydney is eyeing down a blistering heatwave that is tipped to linger throughout the weekend and could see temperatures nudge 48C on Saturday. A large chunk of Australia should sweat through three consecutive days above 40C, with ‘catastrophic’ fire warnings in place for parts of NSW and total fire bans across the state. The state’s energy providers are predicting a huge surge in electricity use on Friday afternoon which could leave thousands without power from 4.30pm onwards. Hospitals will also be affected by the scorching heat, with a rush of heat-affected patients likely to present in their emergency departments over the weekend. Sydney is set to sweat through a three-day mega-heatwave, with temperatures tipped to nudge 48C in the city’s west on Saturday (Bondi Beach pictured, Thursday) A large chunk of Australia should sweat through three consecutive days above 40C, making the beach a great option for those trying to cool down Westmead Hospital’s emergency department treated over 1100 people with heat-related symptoms in December and January, the Sydney Morning Herald reported. ‘If the forecast eventuates we’re likely to see catastrophic fire danger develop in some areas including the Hunter,’ RFS Commissioner Shane Fitzsimmons said in a statement. RFS Inspector Ben Shepherd said recent heat has dried out substantial parts of NSW. ‘In the next few days we’re likely to experience some of the highest fire dangers for this season,’ he told AAP. The searing conditions could see Sydney’s CBD record 38C on Friday, while 44C is forecast for western Sydney. The bureau is predicting 39C in the city and 45C in the west on Saturday with lower maximums likely on Sunday. Hardest hit will be towns in the state’s far north and west including Bourke and Ivanhoe – tipped to reach 47C and 48C on the weekend. Meteorologists said the heatwave is the ‘final big hurrah for heat in the Sydney area’ The Australian Energy Market Operator is forecasting a record demand for power in NSW on Friday reaching 14,700 megawatts. Demand will likely peak between 4.30pm and 6.30pm. ‘The NSW Government is doing everything we can to ensure a power outage is avoided but we encourage the community to reduce their energy use where possible,’ Energy Minister Don Harwin said in a statement. Electricity demand could jump by 50 per cent in western Sydney, according to Endeavour Energy, which will place emergency crews on stand-by in case of network faults. Ausgrid has cancelled scheduled maintenance work in the Hunter Valley and other areas forecast to reach 40C or higher. ‘The main difference with this particular heatwave is there is a significant change in the wind speed and direction,’ Insp Shepherd said. ‘It’s likely that we’ll see stronger northwesterly and westerly winds and it is expected to be drier than normal.’ The scorching conditions will arrive just days after Sydney received half-a-month’s average rainfall in one day on Tuesday. However, relief may be on the way sooner than previously expected, with forecasters now predicting a cool change in some areas of the state on Sunday morning. ‘We are looking at a fairly early southerly change on Sunday – that could drop the temperature down quite a bit,’ Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Andrew Haigh said. Parts of the coast and greater Sydney are due to cool down to the mid-20s on Monday and Tuesday. The RFS is urging residents in bushfire-prone areas to have evacuation plans in place and to keep track of the organisation’s website or the Fire Near Me app for updates. http://www.calculator.net/heat-index-calculator.html
