A geriatric registrar was walking to his car on Monday afternoon when he was attacked from behind by four young men in broad daylight about 5.20pm on Hibiscus Avenue, around the corner from the hospital in St Albans.

The doctor said he tripped and fell to the ground, where he was kicked to the face three times by the attackers who got away with his phone, wallet and bag.

He was treated at Sunshine Hospital for soft tissue injuries and a broken tooth.

Earth's odd rotation may solve an ancient climate mystery

  Earth's odd rotation may solve an ancient climate mystery A geologic change might have plunged lush landscapes into arid zones, killing off an array of creatures—and it might happen again one day.Now, a study published in the journal Geology suggests that it wasn’t the climate that changed, but the geographic location of the landscape. Paleomagnetic signatures in the area’s rocks indicate that sometime between 174 and 157 million years ago, the whole region shifted southward by a startling 25 degrees, plunging once lush landscapes into zones of desiccating heat.

A dedicated NHS mental health nurse killed herself after the stress of working 12 hour hospital shifts stopped her from settling down, an inquest has heard. Although colleagues at Prestwich Hospital in Manchester rated her as 'outstanding' Miss Goddard developed low self esteem due to the long hours.

The assault came less than a week after a junior doctor was attacked by four muggers matching the same description.

That doctor had just finished his shift in the paediatric emergency department about 11pm last Tuesday when he was marched at knifepoint to his car. The four assailants drove off in his white Subaru Impreza sedan.

The latest assault sparked safety warnings from Western Health on Monday.

Extra security staff have been rolled out, according to a Western Health Facebook post addressed to staff, volunteers, patients and visitors.

"We are seeking further advice from police but we urge you to consider your safety and be acutely aware of your surroundings if you are walking to or from the site."

Chief executive Russell Harrison said the staff member was being supported by colleagues and family.

Harry Styles Basically Dressed Up Like a Watermelon to Sing 'Watermelon Sugar' on 'SNL'

  Harry Styles Basically Dressed Up Like a Watermelon to Sing 'Watermelon Sugar' on 'SNL' Harry Styles is officially riding a "Watermelon Sugar" high after his musical guest performance on Saturday Night Live. After delivering a couple of One Direction jokes during his opening monologue as the show's host on Saturday night (Nov. 16) and flexing his comedic chops in a few sketches, Styles donned a sparkling black sequined jumpsuit to sing through "Lights Up," the first hit off his forthcoming sophomore album.

He asked to go to hospital but his boss, Ian Derbyshire, 'indicated he would prefer it if he finished his shift first', Mr Craggs told the tribunal. He eventually resigned after getting in an argument where he was told GPs give out sick notes for people to sit and 'play games on the computer'.

"We are extremely concerned that these assaults have occurred and the safety of Western Health staff and volunteers is our top priority," Mr Harrison said in a statement.

"We are pursuing additional avenues to address staff and volunteer safety and will continue to liaise with Victoria Police."

Police described the assailants as being in their late teens to early 20s and African in appearance.

The latest victim said he now felt unsafe in the area, and worried about assaults on the rest of the community.

"It is not just hospital workers who are threatened by this incident, but also the residents, train commuters, school teachers and students from Holy Eucharist Primary School," he said.

Police are investigating.

Last year, the Victorian government introduced new laws aimed at toughening the sentencing of anyone found guilty of assaulting an emergency worker, including police, paramedics, doctors and nurses delivering or supporting emergency care, firefighters and prison officers.

However, both of the assaults this week occurred while the doctors were off duty, and off site, in the moments after finishing work.

The new laws were tested in court earlier this year and the Director of Public Prosecutions is now appealing a sentence imposed under them, as the offender in that case avoided the minimum six-month jail term.

Doctors and nurses are regularly victims of violence within hospitals. There were 240 occupational violence incidents reported in all of Western Health, the 2016-17 annual report said.

Almost 11 per cent of those incidents resulted in a staff injury, illness or condition.

There were 13 accepted WorkCover claims from Sunshine Hospital in 2016-17.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
