thank you to the ‘doers’

Whenever our country is in the grips of a crisis like we have seen this week with the catastrophic bushfires, it’s not uncommon to feel a little helpless – like we should be doing more, saying more, donating more. But as the bushfires took hold across NSW and parts of Queensland and South Australia, it was the ‘doers’ of our nation who really shone. While firefighters and SES volunteers worked bravely for days on end to control the blazes, heroes also came in the form of people fearlessly defending their neighbours’ homes from flames, volunteers cooking meals and delivering them to evacuation centres and community members opening their homes to strangers, or just offering them a comforting hug. The community was also galvanised to say ‘enough is enough’ in the climate change…

for the fans

Kicking off the 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards on Monday, Robert Downey Jr had a reminder for the star-studded crowd gathered inside the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. “It’s important for us industry types to remember,” he said. “We actually work for the audience.” Accepting her statue for People’s Icon of 2019, Jennifer Aniston’s sentiment was similar – but with a sting. “As actors, we don’t do this for critics or for each other, or to make our families proud, you know? We do this for the money,” she quipped. “No, I’m just kidding, we do it for you guys … and you all have been so good to me.” People’s Champion winner Pink urged fans to work for a greater good. “There is so much to be done,” she said. “Kindness…

hell on earth

As dozens of wildfires burn out of control across eastern Australia, experts have warned that the situation is set to escalate. As WHO went to press, over a million hectares of land had been scorched, more than 500 homes destroyed and the death toll looked set to rise towards 10 – and over 70 blazes were still spreading across NSW and Queensland. A senior emergency official told WHO on Tuesday, it could be the most devastating bushfire season on record. “This week is by far the most catastrophic in my 31 years on the force,” Inspector Bob Mey from Fire and Rescue NSW says. “It’s only November so the worst really could be yet to come. None of us have enough resources when fires are at this extreme level.” As states of emergency were…

koala toll

An estimated 350 koalas have been burnt to death in the Port Macquarie area alone in the past few days. The clinical director of the area’s Koala Hospital, Cheyne Flanagan, said she fears it will take over 30 years to restore the area’s numbers. “Twenty years’ worth of work at the place. I just feel like walking away,” she told the ABC. “I’m not going to, but it’s just awful.” Elsewhere, in Wytaliba, farm workers miraculously saved a cow that was in labour by digging a fire break around her.…

a united front

THE ROYAL FAMILY PUT ON A brave face for the Remembrance Day commemorations in London amid renewed speculation the monarchy is being torn apart by in-house feuds. Just the day after they made their first public appearance together in months, famous foursome, Meghan, Harry, Kate and William attended the Sunday event. The young royals looked sombre as they accompanied the Queen and other members of the royal family to the emotional service at the Cenotaph. Meghan sported a belted black coat with a wide-brimmed hat while Kate wore a sleek black coat with military-style embellishments and a veiled hat. At one stage, the emotional monarch wiped a tear from her cheek as she, Kate and Camilla watched from a balcony as Prince Charles lay a wreath. Meghan, meanwhile, seemed uneasy and cut a lonely figure…

pia’s new love

RUMOURS HAVE swirled for months that Chilean-born Aussie actress Pia Miller is in a relationship with top Hollywood agent Patrick Whitesell, but last week the couple went public for the first time. They were snapped on the red carpet at the premiere of Ford v Ferrari. Whitesell manages the film’s star, Matt Damon. Mum-of-two Miller, 36, who played policewoman Kat in TV soap Home and Away, called off her engagement to photographer Tyson Mullane earlier this year and has since been spotted with Whitesell, 54, in Paris and Mexico. Whitesell had been married to Lauren Sanchez, 49, for 14 years until she sensationally left him for Amazon boss Jeff Bezos, the world’s richest man, worth a reported $218 billion. When the affair was exposed, he split with wife, MacKenzie, who walked away…
