    Story of the week has to go to these two blokes in Queensland who stopped an attempted robbery at an Oporto Chicken shop. Their heroics were recognised on the Today Show with host Karl Stefanovic totally losing it.

  • 01/30/16--22:15: Cyclists behaving badly
  • cyclists behaving badly

    Scores of fired-up cyclists have rolled through Sydney's CBD to protest against new NSW Government rules and penalties for bike riders including fines of more than $300 for not wearing a helmet.

    The rally on wheels, last Friday morning, was part of a campaign by NSW cyclists against the new regulations that take effect in March. The new requirements for cyclists include having to carry photo ID and increased fines, ranging up to $319 for not wearing a helmet, up to $425 for running a red light, and up to $319 for holding onto a moving vehicle.

    Cyclists in the NT are allowed to ride side by side (up to two abreast) on the road and are permitted to use the right lane to turn right or perform a U-turn at a roundabout.

    In the NT, cyclists are allowed to ride on the footpath. All cycle paths are shared paths (with pedestrians) unless a sign indicates otherwise. When riding on a shared path you must keep to the left, unless it is not possible to do so, and give way to any pedestrian.

    When on a shared path and approaching someone from behind, slow down and sound your bell or horn to let them know you are passing. There is a 20km/h speed limit on Darwin City Council shared paths. Please respect it!

    Cyclists must ensure that they wear a helmet which meets Australian Standard AS/NZS 2063. The helmet must be properly fitted and fastened when riding a bicycle on a road or road-related area (including passengers). In the NT, this rule does not apply if the rider is over 17 years of age and is riding on a public place or path that is separated from the road. However it always recommended that cyclists wear a helmet when riding in the Territorty

    They must also have

    • at least one effective brake on their bicycle
    •  a working bell or horn on their bicycle
    •  at night or hazardous weather conditions ride with:
      •  a white light that can be seen from at least 200 metres from the front of the bicycle.
      •  a red light visible for at least 200 metres from the rear of the bicycle.
      • a red reflector that is visible for at least 50m from the rear of the bicycle.

    As well, cyclists must

    • maintain control of the bicycle at all time
    •  ride on the left side of the road
    • ride in a predictable and considerate manner
    •  ride with at least one hand on the handlebars
    •  ride the bicycle the way it has been designed to be ridden
    • ensure all passengers sit on a seat designed for them
    • not carry more people than the bicycle is designed to carry
    • signal when turning right or merging into the right lane
    • give way to pedestrians and other vehicles when entering a road
    • stop and give way to any vehicle exiting a roundabout
    • when cycling on the roadway, always use the on-road bike lane where there is one available
    •  not ride alongside more than one other rider on a road, except to overtake other riders when safe to do so
    •  keep to the left when using a footpath or shared pedestrian / bicycle path and give way to pedestrians
    • not ride a bicycle across a pedestrian crossing, children’s crossing or marked foot crossing
    •  only ride on a crossing where there are bicycle crossing lights
    • not be towed by another vehicle
    • not ride within 2 metres of the rear of a moving motor vehicle continuously for more than 200 metres
    • not lead an animal on a bicycle from a leash or any other kind of leading device
    • not ride with both hands off the handlebars or feet off the pedals or to carry any load which prevents them from having control (it is an offense)
    • ride as near as possible to the far left side of the road. It is illegal and dangerous to ride on the right hand side of the road into oncoming traffic.

    When riding on the road you are vulnerable; take care and watch out for vehicles.

    When riding a recumbent  it is recommended that you use a high visibility flag on a pole to improve your visibility to other road users, cyclist and pedestrians.

  • 02/02/16--21:10: Asleep in the office
  • asleep in the office

    I've been regularly caught out napping at work. There's no sympathy from other staff at Mix seemingly oblivious to the fact the I arrive at the radio station at 3.45am Monday to Friday. By 11am I'm starting to feel a little tired. Similar to what a 9am - 5pm worker would feel by 3pm.

    I was caught stretching and yawning yesterday at 11.30am when the Manager walked by and asked, 'keeping you awake are we Mr. Vincent'?

    Don't get caught napping at your desk like this bloke in the photo. The whole office got in on the joke. Have another coffee instead and have your nanna nap at home.....or in the toilet cubicle. -----Greg

  • 02/07/16--23:51: Molly a ratings winner
  • molly

    Photo of Ian Meldrum courtesy of Wikipedia

    Molly blitzed it around the country on Sunday night. 

    The miniseries, which concludes this Sunday night (14th Feb) drew a whopping 1.79 million viewers last  Sunday night, as the #1 drawcard on the first night of the ratings year. 

    Things I never knew about Molly.

    I always thought Molly was homosexual but the series has Molly's character, played perfectly by Sam Johnson, stating he's bi-sexual.

    I also never knew Molly laid a beautiful 'left hander' to the face of John Paul Young outside a Melbourne nightclub.

    If you thought you knew a lot about the life of Molly you might be pleasantly surprised about what you have left to learn.

    Do yourself a favor and tune-in Sunday night with the rest of Australia. 

    Cheers....Greg

    A United States Air Force B-52 aircraft has arrived in Darwin to carry out military exercises across the Northern Territory.

    The giant aircraft touched down at RAAF Base Darwin on Sunday and will remain in the NT for a week while its pilots carry out training activities.

    Ali was yesterday given a rare opportunity to inspect the aircraft from a distance ... and fortunately still has her hearing!

    Here's a glimpse of the B-52 coming into Darwin.

  • 02/09/16--23:42: New Movies out 11th Feb
  • deadpool

    The Academy Awards are handed out in over a fortnight's time and here's two movies that don't even get a look-in.

    They commence in theatres from Thursday 11th February.

    DEADPOOL (MA15+) starring Ryan Reynolds. Fans of this franchise will be taking the day off school/work to be first in line. If you want to see a freak show be at the box office at the first screening. Good news for fans is the film studio have already given the green light for a sequel.

    ZOOLANDER 2 (M) starring a cast of thousands (Ben Stiller, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Olivia Munn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kristen Wiig, Penelope Cruz) . Do you feel you've seen the best of this comedy from the trailer? Probably. Although, any film, magazine, TV show that has Kristen Wiig in it...I'll watch or buy it. I'm head over heels for this talented comedian/actress. Can't wait to see more.

     Must see films  - The Revenant. Spotlight. The Danish Girl. Carol. The Hateful Eight (R)....although I saw two kids under 15 yrs old in the cinema. 

    Please avoid - Sisters (American comedy is dead).  

    Plain vanilla Choc-tops are still the best...$5.50 is a rip off though. 

    Enjoy...Greg
