Josh Duggar's cousin Amy King censors shirtless photo of son, shares warning to parents about child predators

  Josh Duggar's cousin Amy King censors shirtless photo of son, shares warning to parents about child predators Josh Duggar's cousin Amy King warned parents to be "extra careful" about photos they post of their children online.The mother of one shared a shirtless photo on Wednesday of her son Daxton Ryan, 2, enjoying a pool day but quickly deleted it and reposted to cover up the toddler's chest with a big blue heart emoji.

That was then, this is now The unedifying bust-up between Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and the entire state of Victoria continues. “They had a massive quarantine failure,” he told last night’s 7.30. “Then they had an inquiry that didn’t find anyone took responsibility or made the decision.” Fair enough. But then he went on: “People are sick of [Dan Andrews’] whingeing and his politicking of the crisis.’’ On RN this morning, he doubled down, saying the Victorian government is being “petulant, childish and playing politics”.

The rhetoric versus the reality of what support Victoria has received as opposed to New South Wales is explored elsewhere today. Regardless, it’s worth pointing out Frydenberg’s faux disgust at playing politics with the pandemic is utterly hollow. He spent chunks of last year exploiting the mental health struggles of Victorians (up to and including sharing the story of a friend of a friend’s suicide in Parliament) to score political points against Victoria’s Labor government. All this while his own government ceased JobSeeker — perhaps not realising what a boon to mental health the ability to eat and pay rent can be for some people.

Srebrenica victims buried 26 years after genocide

  Srebrenica victims buried 26 years after genocide The remains of 19 more victims of the Srebrenica massacre of Bosnian Muslims were laid to rest on Sunday during a commemoration marking 26 years since the genocide that still deeply divides the Balkan nation. The remains of 19 such victims, including two teenagers, were laid to rest during Sunday's ceremony, held at a memorial centre just outside of town. They joined the remains of 6,671 Srebrenica victims that have been buried at the cemetery so far, while another 236 people have been laid to rest elsewhere."I will bury only the scull of my brother but even it is not whole," Azir Osmanovic told reporters.

Musical seats Beyond the hypocrisy comes the question: what the hell is Frydenberg playing at politically? Just who is going to be won over by continuing to dismiss Victoria as though 2020 didn’t happen? Even the Herald Sun is getting mad about the difference in approach. The recent Newspoll that showed a “clear path to victory” for Labor didn’t show any seats in Victoria swapping over. Yet. If anything, you’d think the feds might want to start making nice with the state.

Don’t call them by their name There was, surely, always going to be a furore regarding They Are Us, a film about the Christchurch massacre. The author Andrew Niccol has said it doesn’t deal with the attack so much as the aftermath, but according to the leaked script (via Newshub), there are 17 pages dedicated to the attack. Newshub has understandably focused on the trauma this could cause families of the victims.

Teams: Dragons name seven of 'dirty dozen'

  Teams: Dragons name seven of 'dirty dozen' The NRL team lists round Round 18 are in with St George Illawarra forced into mass changes following the suspensions handed down to the 12 players who breached the NRL's biosecurity protocols.While former Dragon Paul Vaughan, who hosted the party, has been sacked by the club, the remaining 12 players were issued one-game suspensions and individual fines.

But in some ways, whether the film depicts the act or not is irrelevant. Crikey has long covered the role media plays in mass shootings. Emeritus Professor Paul Mullen — who, among other things, interviewed the perpetrators of the Port Arthur and Hoddle Street massacres — tells Crikey that notoriety was a driver for mass shooters. Only one in 10 actually had a serious mental illness. Most are pathetic loners with a death wish and a desire that their life means something, anything. They follow a “script” they see in the coverage of previous mass shootings: the shooter’s face plastered over front pages, reporters raking over old diary entries, suicide notes or manifestos, films made about the horror. By narrativising the attack, however you portray it, you play a part in fulfilling that script.

Kelly talks Sometimes the raw material of an event is too much and it paralyses us here in the bunker. For example, what jokes or commentary could we add to the news that Paul Kelly is launching a podcast which is just him reading his columns aloud? To the headline in The Australian announcing it: “Nation’s voice of authority reimagined”? To the podcast title: Paul Kelly: Columns?

Celebrities you didn't know were absolute nerds

  Celebrities you didn't know were absolute nerds It's easy to brush off a famous person as someone with limited interests, but some celebs live double lives as straight-up geeks. Whether they have PhDs in neuroscience, are 'Star Wars' mega-fans, or have published academic papers, these A-listers are true brainiacs. Click and check them out!

We await the audiobook compilation, which will presumably be called Paul Kelly: Columns: The Columns of Paul Kelly read by Paul Kelly. By Paul Kelly.

Called it MasterChef has been called for another year: there are again concerns about leaks affecting the betting market around the winners. Of course, it continues to raise questions about the folly of allowing people to bet on things that have already happened, not to mention things that can be easily controlled (a politician’s tie colour at the next press conference, for example, became common when the pandemic wiped out sport for a few months). Of course, Crikey readers would have known all this a year ago.
