THE youngest of three girls whose incredible life story inspired the award-winning film Rabbit-Proof Fence has died aged 95. Daisy Kadibil was one of the Stolen Generations - Aboriginal kids forcibly removed from their families by the Australian government. Along with her sister Molly and cousin Gracie, she used a huge fence used to keep wild rabbits off crops to navigate after fleeing their orphanage and find her way back home. The now-famous 1,000-mile journey took the girls through harsh outback territory until they reached safety. Their story brought the shocking issue of Australia's Stolen Generations to an international audience. Her grandson Darryl Jones said Ms Kadibil was very young when she made the inspirational journey. "She (Daisy) was the smallest one and the oldest one (was) Molly," he said. "I think Molly knew the way back because they were fixing the fence and Molly knew, my nanna Daisy was (a) little one then." He added she lived for much of her later life in Western … [Read more...] about Daisy Kadibil dead at 95 – Last of Rabbit-Proof Fence girls whose trek home was made into famous film passes away

WHAT to do with children who commit crimes is a controversial subject as some argue they are not mature enough to be held responsible. The age of criminal responsibility in Britain is among the lowest in the world. Here's what you need to know. What is the age of criminal responsibility in Britain? The age of criminal responsibility is the minimum age when a child can be prosecuted and punished for a crime. In essence, it is the age when children are deemed to be mature enough to know right from wrong. It is linked to the legal concept of doli incapax, which means the lack of ability to form criminal intent. The age of criminal responsibility in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is ten. This means children under ten are considered incapable of committing a crime. Although they cannot be prosecuted they can face actions such as a local child curfew or a child safety order. Children of ten or over are normally dealt with by special youth courts but they can face adult crown courts in … [Read more...] about What is the age of criminal responsibility in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and how old do you have to be to go to jail?
Abstract BackgroundTranslational research is required to ensure exercise referral schemes (ERSs) are evidence-based and reflect local needs. This article reports process data from the co-development phase of an ERS, providing an insight into (i) factors that must be considered when translating evidence to practice in an ERS setting, and (ii) challenges and facilitators of conducting participatory research involving multiple stakeholders.MethodsAn ERS was iteratively co-developed by a multidisciplinary stakeholder group (commissioners, managers, practitioners, patients and academics) via five participatory meetings and an online survey. Audio data (e.g. group discussions) and visual data (e.g. whiteboard notes) were recorded and analysed using NVivo-10 electronic software.ResultsFactors to consider when translating evidence to practice in an ERS setting included (i) current ERS culture; (ii) skills, safety and accountability; and (iii) resources and capacity. The co-development process … [Read more...] about Making a move in exercise referral: co-development of a physical activity referral scheme
Story highlights Australian Senate releases report raising concerns about use of pelvic mesh implants Patients have described implants as being "like a knife" cutting them up from the inside (CNN)Like more than 100,000 Australian women, Linda Schulz had a pelvic mesh implant to treat complications from childbirth that resulted in her bowel and bladder prolapsing. The mesh was meant to be a quick fix, but the aftermath was worse. Her right leg went numb almost immediately after the procedure, and after a few weeks the mesh was like a knife constantly cutting her up from the inside. "The mesh cut through my vagina wall and came through my skin," Schulz said. "Any movement, whether I moved my legs or not, felt like a serrated-edge knife was cutting me." In the last year, Schulz, 48, along with hundreds of women experiencing similar complications, petitioned the Australian Senate to investigate their use, hoping for an outright ban and recourse for past procedures.
