Friday, August 18 2017 | NEW ERA IN OTHER NEWS 9 Fine dining while watching a soccer match Something new… An Australian soccer fan has just redefined what to eat when watching a live soccer match at the sport stadium. Instead of guzzling insane amounts of beer, or whatever liquid one fancies, the Australian took with him an expensive platter of fine snacks: Cheese, avocado, bread and cured meats and apparently salmon. Complete with serving platters. And he proceeded to arrange the ensemble on his lap and snack on his fancy food while watching soccer in the open pavalion – not in the VIP booth. No, the pavilion. Squeezed in right there with other soccer aficionados. Of course the other fans couldn’t just understand this. So they took his picture, which went viral immediately. The man was watching a soccer match between the Melbourne Demons and St Kilda Football Club. “Demons fans bringing cheese platters,” tweeted the soccer fan who saw the unusual behaviour at a soccer match, Brendan Maloney. Later a person claiming to be a friend of the man in the photo posted a second picture to Reddit and offered more details of the fan’s feast, which was served on a wooden board and included a section of baguette, what appears to be a variety of blue cheese, avocado and cured meats. “He also has a whole salmon in his bag,” the redditor wrote. Winter wonderland… It was snowing on Thursday in the Eastern Cape, with 30 cm of snow reportedly covering a number of provinces in South Africa. The South African Weather Service sent out warnings for “disruptive snowfall”, and localised flooding was also expected along the Wild Coast and along the KwaZulu-Natal coastline. Twitter was flooded with pictures of snow-covered vehicles, trees and hills. Not to be outdone the Namibians too sent out pictures of Aus, in //Kharas Region, covered in snow. Namibian WhatsApp aficionados – Namibians tend to rely on WhatsApp – posted pictures of snow also covering the //Kharas mountain range nearly 1,270 kilometres from the Eastern Cape. In the photos is the Eastern Cape R58 route at Barkly East covered in snow, and the picture circulating on WhatsApp of the snow-covered Aus tourism information office in //Kharas Region, Namibia. Photos: Traffic SA Twitter and contributed Backfired… Politician Pauline Hanson wearing her Burqa. ustralian MP reprimanded or wearing burqa An Australian lawmaker caused commotion and was rebuked by her fellow politicians on Thursday when she rocked up at senate chamber wearing a black burqa. The politician, Pauline Hanson, was trying to make a point that the country ban the wearing of burqa in public places, citing national security concerns. But her stunt backfired. Hanson, the leader of Australia’s rightwing One Nation party, was made to strip off her burqa after fierce protests from her fellow politicians right there in the chambers. The burqa is a long, loose garment covering the whole body from head to feet, and is worn in public by women in many strict Muslim countries. It is considered a religious garment and adherent followers of the Muslim faith wear it in public. Australia has over a half a million Australian Muslim nationals. The leader of the government in the Senate, the attorney general George Brandis, told the One Nation leader the ruling Coalition had no intention of banning the burqa. In remarks that secured him a standing ovation from the opposition Labour party, and the Greens party, as well as other crossbench senators, Brandis warned Hanson against indulging in behaviour that Muslim Australians would find offensive. “Senator Hanson, no, we will not be banning the burqa,” Brandis told the Senate on Thursday. “Senator Hanson, I’m not going to pretend to ignore the stunt that you have tried to pull today by arriving in the chamber dressed in a burqa when we all know you are not an adherent of the Islamic faith. “I would caution you and counsel you, Senator Hanson, with respect, to be very, very careful of the offence you may do to the religious sensibilities of other Australians.” – Guardian.
