AFL + NRL Called Out For Insensitive Queen Tribute


Over the weekend, the AFL and NRL received online backlash after featuring inappropriately timed tributes to the Queen during the semi-finals.


Across all games, the Queen's minute of silence reportedly took place just seconds after the Welcome to Country.




In reaction to the backlash, the AFLW announced they will not feature Queen tributes this coming week during the Indigenous Round.


However, the NRL have yet to comment on their badly timed tributes.



 

Every Public Primary School in South Australia Will Soon Have A Specialist Autism Teacher


By 2023 every public primary school in South Australia will have a dedicated autism inclusion teacher.


All schools across the state will be provided with guidelines on how to choose the best candidate for this role.


The chosen specialists will receive further training before they're brought into the classrooms in Term One, 2023.

SA Premier Peter Malinauskas hopes South Australia will soon become the "national leader" in serving the neurodiverse community and "lead the way in inclusive education."


Only last month the premier appointed Emily Bourke as the state's Assistant Minister for Autism - a first in all of Australia.


Over $28 million of government funding has been allocated to support children on the spectrum in South Australia.


The funds will not only cover the salaries of specialist autism teachers but also boost the number of autism-qualified pre-school staff, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologists and counsellors in public schools.


 

The Ex Wife Of "The Wolf Of Wall Street" Speaks Out


Dr Nadine Macaluso has recently opened up about her experience being married to controversial stockbroker and scammer Jordan Belfort.


Dr Macaluso was famously portrayed by Margot Robbie in the Oscar nominated film, 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'


She says while the film wasn't entirely inaccurate, it didn't really cover her side of the story.


"I think that if you look at it through Jordan's lens it was really accurate and I think that if you look at it through my lens it wasn't," she says.



Dr Macaluso is now a licensed marriage and family therapist, and an expert in trauma bonding and narcissistic abuse.


While studying to become a therapist, she was finally able to "discern Belfort's truth, her truth and everything in between."



She says she came realise there were many signs of "love bombing" and "toxic behaviour" at the beginning of her relationship with Belfort.


"He was determined for us to become fully committed at warp speed," she says, "after dating only six months, he threatened to leave me if I refused to marry him."
