If you ever decide to set out on a Google-Maps journey around North Korea, you'll notice a long white rectangle docked at the Mount Kumgang port. That's no superyacht or ship – it's the world's first floating hotel! Designed in Sweden, built in Singapore, opened in Australia, relocated to Vietnam, and then on to North Korea – the 7-story hotel has traveled around 9,000 miles within a decade! Back in the early ‘80s, a guy named Doug Tarca decided to bring tourists to Townsville, Australia, not far from the Great Barrier Reef. Tarca used to be a professional diver and wanted to find the best way to show the famous attraction to tourists without harming the reef in any way. He first started giving tours of the reef in a catamaran with a glass bottom. A few months later, Tarca went even bigger – he set his sights on building the world's first floating hotel!

The Tip Sheet goes live from Jacks Bar & Grill one final time before it is all settled on the decisive Sunday of the season. Sixties and Forty20 retread the roads to the Grand Final for both the NRL and NRLW and are joined by a host of guests in the process. It all kicks off with a chance appearance of a guest in the audience who happened to catch the boys preshow to chat. Pete, one of the faithful who made the pilgrimage to Townsville last week, talks Sixties and Forty20 through his incredible experience in the cauldron on North Queensland. We couldn't do a final chat on the NRLW ahead of their dance with destiny without Mary K so we were pumped to have her back. The unique character and chemistry of Dean Widders' squad is the focus throughout as the trio look at how the ultimate underdogs can engineer one final upset against the Newcastle Knights. Finally the show closes out with fellow TCT founder Mitch running his eye over the journey of Brad Arthur and his men. Mitch, a legendary optimist, shares his seasons lows and highs and the critical turning points for the Blue & Gold. It all wraps up with the trio calling their shots for Sunday looking at who will stand up and how the Eels can end the 36-year-old drought.

Adam and Ron talk us through their time in Townsville, Queensland, down to Rockhampton and further south towards Brisbane. A few adjustments to the amounts of people following a few weeks in the Outback and a few great meals Ron and Adam met a few other adventure-seeking junkies, budding professional athletes and other outdoor adventurers. We are always amazed when we find out about different people's journeys and travels and how we have ended up in the same hotel/campsite. Saw a platypus (Adam's highlight), a few kangaroos and other amazing Australian wildlife. Ron had a few great friends join the cycle from Gympie, past the Sunshine Coast towards Colundra. Definitely a highlight of our trip so far! Please remember to donate to ChildFund Rugby via www.racetorugbyworldcup.com. All donations go directly to ChildFund! Day 139

On this week's episode of Stumped with Alison Mitchell, Jim Maxwell and Charu Sharma, we react to Zimbabwe's shock win over Australia. It's the first time that they have beaten Australia on their own soil. We speak to Zimbabwe's man of the match Ryan Burl, who took five wickets for just ten runs. We're also joined by England bowler Mark Wood ahead of the release of his self-help book, The Wood Life! The team get a few life lessons from the man who England's Test captain Ben Stokes describes as a “32-year-old going on 16”. Plus, after the second season of The Hundred came to an end, we assess the success of the competition. Zimbabwe's Ryan Burl acknowledges the crowd after taking five wickets during the third one-day international (ODI) cricket match between Australia and Zimbabwe at the Riverway Stadium in Townsville on September 3, 2022.

In this episode, I had the pleasure of talking with Pippa from Fantastic Futures about Birth Trauma. We discussed: What is birth trauma? How women can experience it? How many women experience it? How trauma impacts the body What happens when we don't deal with it What happens when we do? I hope you enjoy this episode! Ashley x RESOURCES: Panda is a great free resource to get you started if you feel you may have birth trauma or PND https://panda.org.au/articles/childbirth-trauma-and-recovery/ More about Pippa: When my first birth went pear-shaped, I entered the world of birth and became a doula. During those nearly two decades as a birth doula, I have also taught doula skills, been a post-partum doula, taught mothercraft skills, run support groups for women who have experienced birth trauma, delivered childbirth education, encapsulated placentas, and provided 1 on 1 support to women in my role as a birth trauma specialist. I was blessed to have 4 daughters, and it is for them also that I continue to advocate and support women and families around the time of birth. My desire to support and assist women inspired me to lead a team of consumers to deliver a birth centre to Townsville some 14 years ago. I am passionate about teaching women how to create a community as mothers, supporting each other. I can often be found with several weeks of food on the doorstep of a family with a newborn, ready to fold clothes and help in any way I can. I feel very privileged to have found a modality that helps people effectively, efficiently and safely take the pain out of the past and move them into their fantastic future.

Station mum Hayley Price was 32 weeks pregnant with her first baby when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She was then faced with an unimaginable decision when she was told she needed to give birth prematurely so she could commence chemotherapy that would hopefully save her life. Hayley and her husband had to suddenly leave their life on the land and move into temporary accommodation in Townsville 600 kilometres from home. They stayed there for for six months, and thankfully had the support of their employer who helped keep them afloat. This is her story.SPONSORSIs getting your will done on your to-do list?

The story of defence couple, Carole Popham and Christina Dennis, started over 50 years ago in the Women's Royal Australian Air Force. Both born in the '40s, without knowing it they grew up within 350kms of each other in northern Queensland: Carole in Townsville and Christina in Cairns. Coming of age in 1960s Australia - a time of limited work and education opportunities for women - in 1963 and '64 respectively, Carole and Christina each jumped at the chance to join up and serve their country. The WRAAF offered the women a chance to travel and see Australia, to meet other people from all walks of life and the opportunity to work in an interesting and challenging environment that home just couldn't offer. After meeting in the service 1964, and developing a romantic relationship at the end of 1967, Carole and Christina's Air Force careers were cut short by the prevailing conservative morals and military regulations of the day. To avoid persecution from within, in late 1968 Carole and Christina decided to out their relationship to their WRAAF officer and voluntarily discharge from the Air Force. Excelling in their respective musterings, it was not an easy decision to make and was a huge sacrifice. The ban on open service for LGB members in Australia's military would endure for another three long decades, finally overturned by the Commonwealth government in 1992. Carole and Christina have been together for 53 years, living in the same Melbourne suburb for almost as long. Much loved in their local community, their story is inspiring, funny, moving and courageous. They are unassuming trailblazers for today's queer ADF community.

In this episode, we're joined by Alexandre C. Siqueira, a postdoctoral fellow at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia, where he works in the lab of Professor David Bellwood. He joined us to talk about his recent BioScience article on reef fish evolution, and how we're learning more about that topic from some recent findings in Mayan temples. The article's abstract follows.During the excavation of Mayan tombs, little did the archaeologists know that the fossils they discovered in the tomb stones would fundamentally alter our understanding of the earliest origins of coral reef fishes. Located just 500 kilometers from the point where an asteroid impact reconfigured the world's biological systems 66 million years ago, we find the earliest origins of three typical reef fish groups. Their presence in Mexico just 3 million years after this impact finally reconciles the conflict between the fossil and phylogenetic evidence for the earliest origins of reef fishes. The incorporation of these fossils into a global reconstruction of fish evolutionary history reveals a new picture of the early biogeography of reef fishes, with strong Atlantic links. From locations associated with biological destruction and societal collapse, we see evidence of the origins of one of the world's most diverse and spectacular marine ecosystems: coral reefs.
Dudded. There's no other word that can be used to describe the treatment of the Wests Tigers on Sunday evening.The Townsville farce, which saw the Tigers record a loss, when we had actually won, will be recorded into Wests Tigers and NRL history.On this edition of the Wests Tigers Podcast, Eddie Otto, Garry Watson, and Declan McCutcheon take a look back at the now infamous passage of play at the end of the match against the Cowboys.What does the "loss" mean to the club?

About Meredith Meredith is originally a farm girl, being raised on a sheep and dairy farm in Victoria, Australia, but she now resides in the city of Townsville in beautiful, tropical Far North Queensland. Writing has always been a big part of her life – through her journals and each of her four books (She has also contributed a devotional piece to a fifth book). Each of her books comes from a foundation of her faith and covers an aspect of her life – struggles with drugs, alcohol, depression, domestic violence, and the challenges of raising a child with special needs. All are available on Amazon and she has been humbled and grateful to have received many great reviews and hear of lives that have been touched by her work. Accepting Jesus into her heart and being born again has transformed her life, which had a lot of pain and sadness in it. But God has given her beauty for ashes, and He has transformed the pain and sadness through her writing. Her hope is that her books give encouragement and healing, and help people know they are not alone in their pain.

How do you feel about AAC devices? If you think everything surrounding AAC is a little scary, you're not alone! Many SLPs feel this way, but it doesn't have to be scary! AAC devices can benefit our students in so many ways, you just have to understand it and be patient. In this episode of SLP Coffee Talk, I sat down with Kate Thomson to dive into the topic of AAC and what you need to know about using these devices to help your students reach their speech goals. Kate is a go-getter who established the first SpeechEase clinic in Townsville two days a week while still working full-time in her government job. She saw a huge need for speech therapy services in Mackay when the NDIS started and began providing services there on the weekends until there was enough demand to open a second clinic. Kate is also Branch Chair for the Queensland Branch of Speech Pathology Australia and regularly provides supervision and mentorship to early career and senior Speech Pathologists. As a speechie, Kate loved helping unlock a clients' communication abilities using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) so they could show the world who they are and what they know. Make sure to tune in to learn more about the magic of AAC devices, how to use them, and how to help your students flourish with them.

All are available on Amazon and she is humble and grateful to have received many great reviews and hear of lives that have been touched by her work. Accepting Jesus into her heart and being born again has transformed her life, which had a lot of pain and sadness in it. But God has given her beauty for ashes, and He has transformed this pain and sadness through her writing. Meredith's, hope is that her books give encouragement and healing, and help people know they are not alone in their pain.
