Queanbeyan teen pleads not guilty to killing his 10-year-old brother

A Queanbeyan teenager charged with accidentally killing his little brother has pleaded not guilty to the offence.
苏州桑拿会所

The 16-year-old appeared in Queanbeyan Children’s Court on Tuesday, where he is charged with assault causing the death of his 10-year-old brother.

The charge was introduced recently as part of legislation designed to address the problem of one-punch attacks.

On the same day the Queanbeyan teenager pleaded not guilty to the offence, a Newcastle court recorded the first conviction of a person under the new legislation.

In the Newcastle case, the man was charged with manslaughter, but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of assault causing death. He will be sentenced in June.

The Queanbeyan incident occurred on May 23, 2016. It is alleged the teenager grabbed hold of the 10-year-old’s wrist and punched him in the ribs. The younger boy attempted to get away when the teenager allegedly pushed him, causing the boy to hit his head on the corner of a door frame.

The 16-year-old and his mother commenced CPR on the boy, however he was pronounced dead at the Canberra Hospital days after the incident when his life support was switched off.

Previously in court, the boy’s solicitor Michael Bartlett said the autopsy found the 10-year-old had a tissue disorder affecting his cerebral artery.

While a second opinion was sought on the previously undiagnosed brain condition, Mr Bartlett said he’d been told the expert view of the forensic psychologist who diagnosed the condition “doesn’t need to be questioned”.

Following the not guilty plea, both parties agreed the matter needed to be committed to trial because it was a homicide.

But the parties could not immediately decide which superior court should hear the matter.

Mr Bartlett called for the matter to be heard in the district court, where he said other matters with maximum 20-year sentences were heard.

The crown prosecutor suggested the matter should be committed to the supreme court, as this charge was a “statutory alternative” to murder and manslaughter.

The court concluded the case would be heard in the district court.

An application to waive a committal hearing was granted and the case will proceed in May.

‘Lost the biggest bet’: Gambling king convicted of insider trading

12/12/2018 | 苏州桑拿 | Permalink

Four times, authorities went after famed Las Vegas sports gambler William T. Walters, and four times the man known as Billy emerged victorious.

But on Friday, Walters’ luck turned, as a federal jury in Manhattan convicted him on fraud and conspiracy charges in one of the biggest insider trading trials in years.

“To say that I was surprised would be the understatement of my life,” Walters, 70, told reporters as he left the courtroom.

“If I would have made a bet I would have lost. I just did lose the biggest bet of my life. Frankly I’m in total shock.”

His lawyer, Barry Berke, said he would appeal the verdict.

Walters, one of the most successful professional sports gamblers in the country, was accused in the latest case against him of using non-public information from Thomas Davis, a board member of Dean Foods of Dallas, to make more than $US40 million from 2008 to 2014 by realising profits and avoiding losses.

The investigation into Walters’ activities and subsequent trial drew in prominent figures like Carl Icahn, the billionaire investor and unpaid adviser to President Donald Trump, and Phil Mickelson, the champion professional golfer. Swift decision

The conviction of Walters lifted something of a cloud that had hung over the US attorney’s office in Manhattan since December 2014, when a federal appeals court threw out the insider trading convictions of two hedge fund managers. That ruling led prosecutors to vacate the convictions and guilty pleas of several other people.

The verdict against Walters was also a coda to a series of insider trading prosecutions led by Preet Bharara, the former US attorney for the Southern District of New York who was fired days before the trial began.

The jurors in Walters’ case reached their decision after deliberating for a little more than half a day, rendering a swift decision in a trial that lasted 14 days spread over four weeks.

The quickness of the verdict vindicated the government’s trial strategy, including a decision to give a central role to Davis, an acknowledged embezzler and philanderer who had pleaded guilty to several offences connected to the insider trading scheme.

Davis, the government’s main witness, had his credibility repeatedly called into question by lawyers for Walters. The defense team said Walters had been falsely implicated by Davis, who was desperate to escape punishment for his own misdeeds.

One juror interviewed outside the federal courthouse in lower Manhattan where the trial was held said that he and the rest of the jury had not been swayed by that argument.

“We looked at his credibility,” the juror, Lonnie Drinks, said of Davis. “Everything was factored.”

Walters was convicted of 10 charges of securities fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy, the most serious of which carry a potential sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

“Armed with his illegal edge, Walters made huge, perfectly timed trades, at times accounting for over a third of the trading volume in Dean Foods stock,” Joon Kim, the acting US attorney in Manhattan, said in a statement.

“In engaging in his yearslong stock fraud scheme, Walters underestimated law enforcement’s resolve to pursue and catch those who cheat the market.”

Walters, who was once profiled by “60 Minutes” because of his betting prowess, was not the only big name to come up during his trial. The Icahn connection

Icahn emerged in testimony and court filings as having had frequent discussions with Walters. A broker for Walters testified on cross-examination that some of Walter’s stock-trading ideas had come from Icahn, who was not charged with wrongdoing.

During a hearing outside the presence of the jury, one of Walters’ lawyers told the judge that Walters and Icahn were friends.

The lawyer, Paul Schoeman, added: “Mr. Walters has a long history of investing in stocks that Mr Icahn has publicly announced he’s interested in.”

Mickelson was also mentioned during the trial as someone who had traded in Dean Foods shares and once owed nearly $US2 million in gambling debts to Walters.

Mickelson made roughly $US1 million trading Dean Foods shares; he agreed to forfeit those profits in a related civil case brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Known as “Lefty” for his left-handed stroke, Mickelson was not criminally charged. Though he was once seen as a potential witness at Walters’ trial, he was never called to testify. Tips on the Bat Phone

Prosecutors said that Walters had tried to hide his actions by supplying Davis with a prepaid mobile phone called the Bat Phone to use while conveying secret information and by sometimes speaking in code.

During the trial, prosecutors displayed phone logs and trading records, and an agent with the FBI testified that Walters sometimes made major trades within moments of speaking with Davis on the phone.

For instance, the agent testified, Davis and Walters spoke on the phone for 10 minutes one day in 2008 beginning at 12:54 pm. At 1:05 pm, Walters bought 462,200 shares of Dean Foods stock for about $US9.3 million.

Davis provided Walters with secret Dean Food information about future earnings statements, the planned purchase of another company and a pending initial public offering, prosecutors said.

At the same time, Walters arranged for loans of nearly $US1 million to Davis, who had financial problems and repaid only a small portion of what he borrowed, prosecutors said. ‘Babe Ruth of Risk’

Defense lawyers offered a contrasting account. They said that Walters was a skilled and fearless trader, referred to by one of his brokers as “the Babe Ruth of Risk,” who did not need inside information. Davis, Walters’ lawyers said, was trying to save himself by maligning Walters.

The competing narratives were on display throughout the trial. Davis testified that he had acted as a “virtual conduit” of secrets and had supplied Walters with an “enormous” amount of information.

At one point, Davis said, Walters provided him with the Bat Phone to use while communicating about Dean Foods, adding that later he had thrown it into a creek after federal agents visited his home.

Davis also testified that Walters sometimes spoke in code, using “Dallas Cowboys” to refer to Dean Foods and asking “How’s the milkman doing?” when inquiring about the company, then the country’s largest dairy processor.

Defense lawyers cross-examined Davis at length, eliciting acknowledgments that he had been squeezed for money, had taken $US100,000 from a charity he ran, had mislabelled expenses on his taxes and had lied to many people, including investigators with the SEC.

Walters’ lawyers suggested that Davis had misled prosecutors about his sports gambling habits and his contact with prostitutes, at one point reading into the record phone numbers for escort services in Chicago, Denver, New York and San Francisco that Davis, who told prosecutors he had not hired prostitutes in recent years, had called in 2010, 2011 and 2014.

Berke also questioned the existence of what he called the “so-called Bat Phone,” which was never recovered, pointing out that Davis had first told prosecutors that it was black before then testifying at trial that it was maroon.

Tigers stars align to topple Eagles

12/12/2018 | 苏州桑拿 | Permalink

Richmond coach Damien Hardwick was smiling after his side outlasted West Coast at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.
苏州桑拿会所

It was a performance won more through grit than polish, ably led by his side’s four best players – Alex Rance, Dustin Martin, Jack Riewoldt and Trent Cotchin all outstanding – but with solid performances from his second tier.

“I thought our first half was a bit untidy, we looked a little bit flat,” he said. “We challenged our boys a little bit at half-time, and I thought all of our leaders stood tall – Trent, Jack, Alex, and then Dusty came to the fore as well.”

It wasn’t just about the leaders. Reece Conca continued his fine start to the season, and at the fall of the ball, the Tigers’ small forwards were dangerous. Daniel Rioli had nine touches, but his impact was undeniable, his agility and balance sublime, his third-quarter goal brilliant.

But it was the Tigers’ determination to hunt the ball inside the contest that outworked the Eagles.

“I thought we got our mix right of our inside and then guarding the outside,” Hardwick said.

“They hurt us a little bit on the outside early. I thought Lambert did a terrific job on Mitchell from about halfway through the second quarter, which probably stifled them a little bit, but I was really pleased that our guys, when challenged, lifted the bar.”

Adam Simpson acknowledged that his side had been beaten for intensity around the ball.

“Our poor intent in the third really cost us. We probably should have been hurt by that a bit more, but hard-ball gets – your ability to stick our head over the ball when it really mattered – went away from us in that third quarter in particular. Having said that, the game was still on the line right up until the last five minutes.”

The Eagles have just a five-day break before they take on Sydney, who are in the unfamiliar position of being without a win after three rounds, but Simpson said he expected no more from the Swans’ renowned hardness than any other side.

“I think every team wants pressure and intensity in the contest and to win the contested ball,” he said.

“That’s coming every week. The Saints were the same last week; North the same round one. So that’s just a given now, I don’t think it’s any team’s particular style, just some teams are better than others. We’ve got to move on pretty quick. On Monday we’ll start working on the opposition with our players.

“We’ll take some positives out of today, but we’ll also take some big areas of improvement and like I said, Richmond were consistent all day in that area of the game, and in the end it’s hurt us.”

Richmond, by contrast, are three and zip. Next week, they take on an improving Brisbane on the road: win that, and you have to go back to 1995 for the last time the Tigers opened a season with four straight. “Brisbane are actually playing some pretty good footy at the moment, have taken it up to a couple of sides,” Hardwick said.

“It’s always tough going interstate, but we travel pretty well, so we look forward to that challenge up on their hostile deck.”

Newcastle Hunter Rugby Union: Southern Beaches claim late first round win away against Maitland

OVER THE LINE: Southern Beaches. Picture: Jonathan Carroll

The visitors prevailed in a thrillingNewcastle and Hunter Rugby Union season opener after reclaiming the lead from the Blacks with a try scored on the brink of full-time by substitute and league convert James Vaka.

After receiving an unexpected penalty in front of the posts Beaches opted to strive for victory rather than level proceedings with a gift three points and it paid dividends whenthe 2015 Lakes premiership winner madethe most of an overlap.

“I reckonI had two strokes along the way,” Laurens said.

“And I keep getting greyer with games like that.”

Prior to sealing the result, Beaches hadn’t scored in the second half after leading 17-7 at the main break.

Delore brothers Michael and Andrew crossed for Beaches during the first half along with prop Matthew Lanzini while New Zealand recruit Travis Brooke was the only player to make inroads for Maitland in the opening 40 minutes.

Brooke’s double was secured early in the second half and was followed by back-to-back penalty goals from insidecentre Jye Estatheo, giving the Blacks a 20-17 advantage approaching the dying stages.

“We’d been going really well up until half-time, but I think the boys got a little complacent after that,” Laurens said.

“The Blacks had a different idea and really took it to us in the second half.

“In the end we adjusted and started getting back to our systems and processes, but by that point we were trailing.”

Beachesretain the Hawthorne Cup after holding it at the end of last season.

Over at No.2 Sportsground and Wanderers led from start to finish in a close battle with Merewether Carlton, eventually triumphing 19-10.

Two Blues coach Viv Passi said it was a typical first round encounter with plenty of mistakes, but he was most pleased with debutants Nikolas Mylonas, Douglas McKillop, Carel Strydom, Gus Locke and Josh McCormack.

“They all came in and did a good job,” Passi said.

Elsewhere,University edged out Nelson Bay 16-10 at Bernie Curran Oval, two-time defending premiers Hamilton ran in eighttries as part of a 52-15 demolition of The Waratahs at Passmore Oval while Lake Macquarie eased past Singleton 39-15 at Walters Park.

Decor and Design: How to create the perfect dining room

The n Interior Design Awards shortlistThese design trends have an expiry dateThe interior trends you’ll love in 2017
SuZhou Night Recruitment

A thought experiment: Cast your mind back to your most-cherished memories at home with your loved ones. It could be a conversation over a glass of red wine and a slow-cooked stew, a board game night on a cold winter’s evening or something else entirely. Whatever you recall, I’ll hazard a guess that some of those recollections happened at the kitchen table.

Informal dining areas have always been important – but now that many people in heritage houses are converting their formal dining rooms to home offices or forgoing the space entirely in new builds, they have become indispensable.

If you’re pressed for space, a round table can work well, as it allows for the maximum amount of seating in a small area.

The Eero Saarinen pedestal table, also known as a tulip table, is a mid-century classic that is enjoying a resurgence in popularity.

Many companies, including IKEA, produce similar-looking designs if the price of the real thing gives you sticker shock.

Pair one with the sinuous curves of bentwood chairs such as Le Corbusier’s B9 armchair, another classic, for an on-trend look that will also stand the test of time.

Another direction is mix-and-match seating – for example, a combination of different styles such as bentwood and spindle-back chairs with timber stools, or the same style of chair in different colours.

Lighting is all important for a cosy, convivial mood.

For pendants, the general rule of thumb is that the bottom of the light should be 75 centimetres above the table top, but this can depend on personal preference, ceiling heights and furniture sizes.

One of my favourite designs is Poul Henningsen’s PH lamp. Launched in 1925 following a decade of experimentation, the PH has layered shades to create a soft, diffused light. The inner side of one of the elements is red to bring the harsh white of the electric globe back to a warmer hue.

Fiona Parry-Jones, of Von Haus Interior Design Studio, says there is a move towards oversized pendant lights in informal dining areas.

“Oversized lighting adds a bit of drama and creates conversation,” she says. “It’s a talking point that brings the audience together.”

Materials are another important consideration. For those with young children, hard-wearing laminate tabletops can be a good option (check out Hay’s T12 table for a great-looking version).

That said, timber and marble tables can develop a beautiful patina over time, if you’re the sort of person who can handle a bit of wear and tear.

Sally Bevan, founder of online interior design and styling service Milray Park, says that the desire for materials that show marks and stains is itself a direction in interiors.

“People are looking for things that have a bit of character,” she says.

“The preference is for something that has been banged up a bit.”

Budget measures to encourage migrants out of capital cities

14/09/2019 | 苏州桑拿 | Permalink

The Turnbull government is considering new measures to encourage more migrants to settle in regional or remote areas to relieve pressure on house prices and infrastructure in Sydney and Melbourne.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

With one month until budget day, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton says his department is working closely with the treasury and finance departments to assess the likely impact of a possible shift in the migration program.

House prices rose 19 per cent in Sydney and 16 per cent in Melbourne in the year to March, locking more people out of the market.

The government is believed to be looking at the NSW central coast and Goulburn as key areas that could host migrants who might otherwise settle in Sydney.

Ahead of a major speech by Treasurer Scott Morrison on housing affordability – an issue which is set to be the centrepiece of his second budget – Mr Dutton said ‘s 190,000-strong annual migration intake had to be driven by ‘s national interest.

“There are ways we are looking at that we might be able to provide support to people to choose a regional city, for example, if they can find work there,” the minister told Sky News on Sunday.

Describing housing affordability as a “whole of government effort”, Mr Dutton said there were good reasons many migrants wanted to settle in the capital cities, including access to jobs and proximity to family and expat communities.

But getting them to move “beyond the city limits” and directing them towards regional centres could bring many benefits, he said.

“If we can encourage more of that – people moving away from capital cities – then I think that’s something we can embrace.

“The argument is how can we marry them up with regional communities where there is a supply of work, where there is the ability to send kids to school? Living in regional towns is a great way to raise a family, a great way to be involved more intimately in the life of that community. And housing and the cost of living otherwise has the potential to be much cheaper than living in a capital city.”

Is goalscoring a skill Socceroos can afford to overlook?

14/09/2019 | 苏州桑拿 | Permalink

The robust debate about whether the A-League’s top-scoring n, Jamie Maclaren, is good enough for the Socceroos tells us everything about what’s wrong with player development. Who sees the wood for the trees?
SuZhou Night Recruitment

Maclaren scores goals, and goalscoring is a skill. How you arrive at the ball, and what you do with it, in the nanosecond when the ‘chance’ usually arrives is what makes goalscorers the most precious commodity in the game. Not that you’d know it.

Listen to the commentariat, and the judgement about Maclaren is all about whether he can play in a ‘system’. Mark Viduka once famously said the only system he knew about was a hot-water system. In those days, strikers were measured by their goals. These days it seems they’re measured by their GPS.

What’s not in doubt is that Maclaren is a goal-poacher – 38 goals in 50 games since joining the Roar last season – and the national team needs goals. This is not so much about whether Maclaren deserves to be picked, it’s more about whether a player like him deserves to be picked. That’s the dilemma.

For decades, the philosophers have agonised about why struggles to produce players who can master the ball in the area where it counts – the goalscoring zone. Over the years, there have been a thousand theories, and almost as many re-calibrations of programs designed to manufacture these type of players. Truth is, there’s only one solution. Repetition. Which takes time.

Strangely enough, in the era of full-time professionalism, time to develop skills is seemingly in short supply. has made great strides tactically, but the technical revolution has been neglected. The key contributing factors to most goals – crossing, shooting and heading – are ancillary to game-based training in both junior and senior programs. You reap what you sow.

In my memory, no n player has ever hit a dead ball better than Con Boutsianis. In the A-League era, only Nebojsa Marinkovic comes close to his level of unerring consistency, but he’s a Serb. Boutsianis is passionate about re-focusing player development on goalscoring. He’s spent years fine-tuning a methodology so advanced its attracting huge interest from overseas. But in his own country he’s ignored.

Boustianis, and other former NSL players like Zlatko Nastevski and Peter Katholos, have been trying to convince clubs and elite programs to invest in specialist coaching, but the door usually gets shut in their face. A-League coaches aren’t inclined to engage specialist coaches, while the development curriculum also sidelines one-on-one skills training.

Boutsianis remains unequivocal. “With kids, we’re not teaching the fundamentals. That starts with a dead ball, that’s where you learn the mechanics. There are 20 ways to kick a ball. Once you get that sorted, you switch to a moving ball. That’s how you take the game from A to B. But we’re not asking the right questions about why our players struggle with the basic skills. Let’s stop the bullshit about possession, and start focusing on how to score goals.”

How? Ten to 12 hours per week training, building up to 50,000 touches of the ball. That’s the Boutsianis mantra. Incredibly, full-time pros in the A-League struggle to get to those benchmarks. Poignantly, there’s evidence that a growing number of them are getting frustrated by the rigidity of their training and have started to engage in secret one-on-one sessions to work on their skills.

A-League coaches often lament the poor technique they inherit, but few do much about it. Factor in their average weekly training schedule – recovery, rest, fitness sessions, defensive shape, offensive shape, 7v7, 8v8, 11v11 – and they’ll tell you there’s not much time left for crossing and finishing drills.

A good strength and conditioning coach will incorporate ball work in the warm-up, but it’s not the same. Indeed the same strength and conditioning coaches will often forbid players doing ‘extras’ after training because of the modern-day obsession with loading. Hitting too many dead balls risks soft-tissue injuries, so the story goes.

Like Boutsianis, former Central Coast Mariners coach Phil Moss believes the game needs to re-think it’s approach. And he’s seen the issues from the inside: “Individual skill, at the top level, is about execution under pressure. That’s what creates the exciting moments, the goals, we all want to see. But to get there, we need to change the system, the program. If we do that, if we create more time for specialist coaching, things will improve dramatically. I’m sure of that.”

And so we come to this. Forty years after the introduction of a coaching and development pathway, the game still lacks goalscorers, and there’s no sign the production line will be making up the deficit anytime soon. If you’ve screamed at the TV when a fullback puts a simple cross over the byline, or a striker shoots wildly over the bar from close range, you get the big picture.

Putting the ball in the net is as much about individual skill as collective effort. Perhaps more so. So instead of talking about what Maclaren can’t do, start talking about what he can do. Do that, and we start to identify the crux of the problem. The next step is to do something about it.

Sense Of Occasion to Kris Lees proves $1 million move for Newcastle owners

IN THE FRAME: Sense Of Occasion, second from left, finishes third to Winx, right, and Hartnell, left, on Saturday. Picture: bradleyphotos苏州夜总会招聘.auSENSE Of Occasion’s Newcastle owners weren’t sure if they would win another race with the horse before they asked local trainer Kris Lees to take him on midway through last year.
SuZhou Night Recruitment

In nine starts for Lees, Sense Of Occasion has now won $969,190, including$400,000 for finishing third to Winx and Hartnell in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000 metres) on Saturday at Randwick. It followed $300,000 for third in the Doncaster a weekearlier in a career which has returned $1,267,020 in 32 starts.

“He’s been amazing,” part-owner Stephen Bilich said of Lees’ work with the $80,000 gelding. “We’ve got a cheque every time the horse has raced and to be honest with you, we weren’t sure we wereever going to win another race.We asked Kris to take the horse and he said he’dlove to, and he’s just transformed him.

“He’s just worked the horse out. He said from day one that he had a feeling the horse needs his runs spaced out, and that’s what he’s done and the horse has thrived.”

Ownership manager Anthony Hall and part-ownersLarry Curtis, Elaine Wragge, Derek Hall, David Blunden, Roddy Scott and Bilich all have ties to Newcastle.

“He’s pretty much a Newcastle horse which I think people are warming too as well, and they are getting behind him now,” Bilich said.

Bilich said the group had also profited fromSense Of Occasion’s underdog status in the betting ring.

“His Villiers win just stamped him as something out of the ordinary, but the press have never picked up on it,” he said.

“He’s been friendless in both his recent starts, which hasn’t worried us because we don’t mind a bet and we’ve had a nice time.”

A Brisbane winter campaign now beckons for Sense Of Occasion, which won the group 2 Villiers Stakes last December only a few weeks afterpart-owner and former Newcastle Jockey Club vice-chairman and life memberJoe Wragge died.

“There’s sadness involved because a good mate of ours, John Wragge, passed away last year,” Bilich said.

“He was the major shareholder in the horse. But his wife, Elaine, she is pretty proactive with it now and getting a thrill out of it.”

The owners are now eyeing even more success.

“That was his first attempt at weight for age on Saturday and he certainly stepped up to the plate,” Bilich said.

“No one was going to beat Winx, she’s the best horse in the world, and Hartnell is the second highest rated in .

“And [Jockey] Corey [Brown] thought he could havebeaten Hartnell, but he got held up at avital stage.”

Sense Of Occasion started with the now lateGuy Walter before stints with Joe Pride and Tony McEvoy.

“They just did things differently and it obviously didn’t agree with the horse,” Bilich said.

“We’ve got no axes to grind or anything like that, he just needed a change and Kris has just been amazing with him.

“Obviously, we’re just stoked.Every part of the way with Kris has been a pleasure and his communication is second to none.

“I’ve got horses with several different trainers, and I’ve got a small breeding operation, so you get to see how they all do things,but of all of them, I’ve got Kris right up there.”

The success for the Newcastle ownership group originated from a lucky call on theirway home from the 2012 Inglis n Easter Yearling Sale.

“New Zealand bloodstock agent Paul Beamish put us onto him,” Bilich said.

“We went to the sale and had a look at him. Paulthought he’d go for about $160,000, which is more than we wanted topay, and on the way home Anthony got a call saying he was up to 70 something and do you want to have bid.

“We said to go to 80 and not a cent more and he was knocked down to us for that.”

The 15- and 16-year-old youths appeared in a Sydney court on Sunday charged with murder, robbery, wound with intent, carjacking and aggravated break and enter with intent following a spate of offences on Thursday night and Friday morning in Queanbeyan, near the ACT border.

The older boy is also charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm. He was already on bail for aggravated sexual assault with a weapon and is due to face trial later this year.

Officers from the Joint Counter-Terrorism Taskforce are investigating if the most recent incidents are terror-related. Neither boy has been charged with any terrorism related offence.

They appeared before Parramatta Children’s Court on Sunday via videolink. They did not apply for bail and it was formally refused. They will reappear in court on Tuesday, again via videolink.

Court documents show the youths, both from the suburb of Queanbeyan, are charged with the murder of petrol station attendant Zeeshan Akbar between 8pm and 11.59pm on Thursday. They are further charged with robbing Mr Akbar of a cash drawer.

Police allege the youths then entered a house on Stornaway Road, Queanbeyan with the intention of stealing. Inside the older boy allegedly assaulted and inflicted bodily harm on the occupant.

A few hours later, between 3am and 7am, the youths entered a silver Ford Falcon sedan before allegedly assaulting the driver.

NSW Police Force Deputy Commissioner Catherine Burn on Friday said there was some evidence the spree could be terror-related or linked to drugs.

“We have two teenagers in custody and sufficient information to believe the actions of one of those teenagers may be related to terrorism,” she said.

“That information comes from physical evidence at the scene and other sources.”

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said on Friday that the circumstances of the stabbing warranted the involvement of the Joint Counter-Terrorism Team.

Police have told Fairfax Media that the victim’s blood was used to scrawl letters, possibly saying ISIS, on the window of the Caltex service station.

Fairfax Media understands the mother of the 16-year-old boy told police she thought her son had been radicalised in recent weeks, but no concrete links to religious extremism have emerged so far.

It’s understood the 16-year-old had made concerning Facebook posts related to Islamic State in recent weeks.

However, he also has a history of committing petty offences around the Queanbeyan area and allegedly had issues with the drug ice.

Strike Force Shirley detectives said on Monday they had arrested a 21-year-old man after finding him hiding under a bed in a Raymond Terrace home on Saturday afternoon.

He was arrested and taken to Raymond Terrace Station, where he was charged with robbery whilst armed with a dangerous weapon, and possess prohibited drug.

Investigators also arrested a man, 32, at a motel on the Pacific Highway, Heatherbrae, about 10.30pm on Saturday.

He was taken to Raymond Terrace Station and charged with robbery whilst armed with a dangerous weapon.

Both men were refused bail to appear in Newcastle Local Court on Monday.

EARLIER:

SPECIALIST police investigating a series of violent armed robberies across the Hunter have made their second dramatic arrest.

Strike Force Shirley investigators, made up from local detectives and those from the State Crime Command’s robbery and serious crime squad, swooped on their second suspect on Friday following an intense investigation.

The arrest, which occurred with the help of the gang squad’s Strike Force Raptor, was made following a vehicle stop on Edinburgh Street at Raymond Terrace.

The driver, 30, was taken into custody and later charged with two counts of robbery whilst armed with a dangerousweapon.

Investigators will allege the charges relate to the armed robbery of the Hunter River Hotel at East Maitland on December 5 and the hold-up of the McDonalds restaurant at Williamtown on January 25.

​The passenger in the vehicle – a 39-year-old man – was also arrested at the scene for unrelated matters.

Shortly after the arrest, two search warrants were executed at homes on Vogele Place and Brown Street atRaymond Terrace, where police allegedly located and seized a number of items relevant to the investigation.

Both men were taken to Raymond Terrace police station, where strike force detectives charged the younger man with the armed robberies.

He was refused bail.

The latest arrest camea day after images were released of masked suspects in the pub robbery, where a patron was attacked with a baseball bat as staff were threatened with a shotgun.

The men stole cash,purses, and a red tool box before escaping via the back door.

Two days before the release of the closed circuit television footage of the pub robbery, Strike Force Shirley investigators had circulated images of the suspects in the brazenMcDonalds hold-up and revealed they had conducted asearch warrant on a Raymond Terrace home.

An 18-year-old man was arrested last Tuesday and charged by Strike Force Shirley detectives with the McDonald armed robbery.

The teen is accused of storming the Nelson Bay Road restaurant with two other suspects.

Footage shows two of the bandits stayingwith staff as a third raided a safe and cash registers.

One male staff member was injured when he was struck on the arm by a baseball bat wielded by one of the bandits.

The robbery was completed within a few minutes, with startled customers in the restaurant’s carpark the first to raise the alarm after first suspecting it was a prank before seeing staff with their hands raised.

Liesl Tesch wins Gosford by-electionpoll

WINNER: Labor Party candidate Liesl Tesch, with NSW Opposition Leader Luke Foley, meets a voter during the Gosford byelection on Saturday. Never mind taking time out to savour the victory. The morning after she had secured the state seat of Gosford, Liesl Tesch was driving to Sydney, straight to Parliament House.

“I”m going to have a look,” Liesl Tesch said from the car. When asked why she didn’t take a day offbeforestarting work, she replied, “there’ll be plenty of tomorrows”.

Making the most of each day has taken Liesl Tesch far in her 47years.

Ms Tesch spent part of her childhood in western Lake Macquarie and attended the University of Newcastle. When she was 19, Ms Tesch broke her back in a mountain bikeaccident, becoming an incomplete paraplegic.

She continued pursuing her passion for sport. Liesl Tesch is a seven-time Paralympian, in wheelchair basketball and sailing. Less than a year ago,Ms Teschwas on the medals podium with her sailing partner at the Rio Paralympics, having just won gold –just as they had in London.

Now Labor’s Member-elect for Gosfordwas about to be on the top of the stairs outside Parliament House, being photographed with Opposition Leader Luke Foley.“I just want to get a feel of what it’s like there,” Ms Tesch said. “As soon as you wheel into a stadium, you look around at the space. When I’m at the top of the steps it will be the start of a new journey and responsibilities.”

For Liesl Tesch, entering the political arena involved a lot of thought. She said it was “heart-wrenching” leaving her job as a high school geography teacherbut “I can’t describe the honour of beingselected by the people to do this job”.

Liesl gets straight to work TweetFacebook Liesl TeschIn the Gosford byelection, brought on by the resignationof MP Kathy Smithdue to ill health, the Labor Party candidate had recorded a swing of more than 11 per cent. Before the election, this was one of the state’s most marginal seats,with Labor holding it by a margin of just 0.2 per cent.

Ms Tesch said while many had votedforher, others had cast their ballot againstthe Government.

Voters had told her how disappointed they were in the lack of resources allocated tothe Central Coast. She argued that with the funding for Sydney’s big infrastructure projects, “it feels like it’s at our expense. We want more resources outside of the city.”

When Ms Tesch was announced as the Labor candidate, some were critical that she had been “parachuted” in. Ms Tesch said she understood those initial concernsbut had received support while campaigning. The transition to politics, she said, had been “all good”.

“There’s been no gunpoint in Rio [moment],” Ms Tesch joked, referring to her being robbed in the Brazilian city while training for the 2016 Paralympics.
