Jog for Jugs – Australia is currently held in Perth, Darwin, Ayr, Cape York, the Gold Coast and Coolangatta/Tweed Heads supporting the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Breast Cancer Network Australia.

The Jog for Jugs in Darwin will be held at Mindil Beach on Sunday Oct.25.
For those who have ever downloaded or uploaded movies, TV shows and music to the internet for free - you might want to stop. A leaked version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal means rights holders, like Hollywood Studios, could soon be able to sue you for a lot of money. Internet service providers (ISPs) would be required to hand over the details of illegal downloaders to the rights holders and will also be forced to keep track of persistent pirates and dob them in.
dallasbuyersclub.jpg The makers of the Oscar award-winning film Dallas Buyers Club took Australian ISPs iiNet, Dodo, Internode, Amnet Broadband, Adam internet and Wideband Networks to court seeking the names and address of those Australians who allegedly infringed copyright by sharing the film online and were attempting to charge thousands of dollars to each offender. However Federal Court judge Justice Nye Perram refused to order the release of customer’s names and addresses unless they changed their claim and said the company could be entitled to the cost of renting or buying the film for costs associated with finding the name of an alleged downloader. With the new laws, how much you will have to pay depends on the nature of the infringement. The new laws are looking at a three strikes scheme, where users are warned and when they reach the third strike, ISPs are obliged to serve up their customer’s identity to the rights holder.
This is awesome. Check out George Miller's blockbuster hit from 2015, Mad Max: Fury Road. The attention to detail paid to the various rigs and characters (the silver paint around the War Boys mouths, for example) is pretty extraordinary. They even managed to find everyone's favorite guitar shredding baddie some screen time in the video.
Enjoy this gamers.
Greg from Wake Up with Greg & Ali on Mix 104.9

Everyone knew Jurassic World was going to be a hit, but no one knew just how big of a hit it was going to be. It turns out, experts simply underestimated the public’s appetite to see dinosaurs eat human beings.
That idea of dinosaurs vs. humans is something that’s obviously been dramatized for decades.
What if Jurassic World was made in 1978, with that technology? The result is the hilarious trailer above, which mixes footage from Colin Trevorrow’s movie with a tonne of other films. If Jurassic World had been released in 1978, it would look like this and be marketed as such. Fun stuff. - Greg
Throw on your bathers, budgie smugglers, boardies, bikinis or mankinis! Jog for Jugs returns to Darwin this weekend.

This is a free, all ages, non-competitive annual event.
For more information and to register for free visit Jog for Jugs.
With ‘Back to the Future’ day on Wednesday (21st October) I thought it might be a good idea to check out some of the stars of film and television who were big in the 80’s and what they’re like 30yrs on. Cheers…Greg
Eleven new eateries are set to open their doors at Casuarina Square as part of a new dining and entertainment precinct.
Max Brenner, Grill'd, The Groove Train, PappaRich, Mad Mex, Nutrition Station Cafe and Sushi Bay will operate in the new precinct for the first time in Darwin next year.
Hog's Breath Cafe, Nando's, Baskin Robbins and a second Coffee Club will also set up shop.
Casuarina Square management says there are two non-food retailers set to open in the precinct, which are yet to be confirmed, but hinted the stores will reflect our Territory lifestyle.
Greg and Ali received a mixed reaction from listeners this morning with many callers preferring specialty stores instead of more eateries.
With construction underway and works to be completed by mid-2016, what would you like to see open at the new dining and entertainment precinct?
Volunteer your time this National Bandanna Day.

To get people excited about Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, the horror-movie franchise staged the ultimate haunted-house prank—an open house in the actual home where the first Paranormal Activity was filmed.
In due course, potential homebuyers were subjected to all the bells and whistles of a proper haunting, including falling paintings, shattering mirrors and static electricity in the microwave.
It turns out watching people totally lose their shit with minimal provocation is hilarious. Enjoy…Greg
Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has been cast to play that sweet transvestite — Dr Frank-N-Further — in a new remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
The 31-year-old will take on the role on what will be a “reimagining” of the cult classic, which originally starred Tim Curry as Frank-N-Further in both the Broadway musical and the movie.
Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick play Brad and Janet who stumble upon Frank-N-Furter’s castle after their car breaks down.

Eater’s Kat Odell visited America’s first 3 star Michelin sushi chef, Masa Takayama, to see how the eponymous chef serves his sushi. Having cut fish for three decades in his restaurant Masa in New York City, and having shaped American sushi culture like no other, we get a detailed look at how the chef serves his dishes and why they are served the way they are. The restaurant is also America’s most expensive, offering a truly classic Japanese omakase experience with a twist. Watch the video here above to get a true behind-the-scenes look as the camera goes into Masa. - Greg
When it comes to exercise, 30 minutes daily is pretty good. But experts have questioned whether the bar has been set high enough.
When it comes to preventing heart failure, the more exercise the better, according to a new analysis in the journal CIrculation.
How much more? Researchers who followed over 370,000 people for an average 15 years, suggest as much as two to four times the 30 minutes per day magic number.
Squeezing in an hour each day can be hard for many of us, but the benefits include helping to prevent diabetes, cardiovascular disease and several cancers as well.

According to the World Health Organisation, bacon, sausages and ham can cause cancer, ranking in the same category as alcohol and cigarettes.
The UN health body has declared processed meats like ham, salami and cabanossi as group 1 carcinogens, because of a causal link with bowel cancer.
'Red meats' arent off the hook either, with links to pancreatic and prostate cancer.
What do you think? Will you drop the steak in favour of a bean salad?

SBS’s new observational documentary, 'Kebab Kings', will lift the lid on an Australian multicultural institution – the kebab shop.
The original three-part series, narrated by Australian actor Shane Jacobsen, and produced by CJZ, follows the staff and customers at two of Australia’s busiest kebab shops.
Cameras capture what goes on behind the spit at Oz Turk in George Street, Sydney and Smith Kebabs in Collingwood, Melbourne.
'Kebab Kings' delves into the lives of the kebab shop owners and staff as they live the ‘Australian dream’, and explores the challenges they face when their beliefs and values come face-to-face with a very different culture on a daily basis.
In Melbourne, Australian-Indian Muslim couple Mustafa and wife Zareena have run Smith Kebabs for four years and have grand plans to build their business into an empire, all while juggling raising a young family.
Alcohol-fuelled customers from gay clubs and hipster pubs in trendy Collingwood are often at odds with the Muslim culture of Smith Kebabs’ owners and staff.
Turkish couple Fatima and Nafi, along with their son Ufuk, have been kebab royalty of Sydney for 14 years, catering to the scores of tipsy city workers, backpackers and weekend revellers who party in the heart of Sydney’s CBD with charm and unwavering customer service.
More than a decade of 14-hour days has taken its toll and now the local legends have decided to retire, selling Oz Turk to rookie entrepreneurs and wannabe kebab kings, Syrian brothers Fadi and Rami.
The cameras in these two kebab shops capture people behaving badly, the problems with excess, and human behaviour at its best over the busy three weeks leading up to Christmas.
Wish they had their cameras at the Kebab shop in Mitchell St. That would be a eye opener.
'Kebab Kings' airs over three weeks, beginning Wednesday 25 November, 8.30pm on SBS.
Forget Melbourne. The place to be on Cup Day is the Berry Springs Tavern for a 'world first' saltwater crocodile racing competition.
Pub owner Ian Sloan has organised six juvenille salties to compete in the Croc Cup at the rural watering hole in Darwin's rural area.
Each croc will be placed in the centre of 'a large circle and the first to reach the edge of the circle wins'.
After the Croc Cup, guests will be treated to cane toad and turtle racing at the tavern.

Greg has a fascination for comedian/actor Kristen Wiig. Imagine Greg’s amazement when it was announced that Kristen Wiig may be nominated for an Academy Award in her latest role on screen.
“If ever an actor deserved to be recognized for their talent it has to be Kristen Wiig. She’s this century’s Sir Laurence Olivier” said Greg.
Enjoy the trailer.
