3 Quote of the Day Cocos (Keeling) Islands News (cont d) Berita Pulu Cocos (Keeling) (seterusnya) The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today. H. Jackson Brown Jr Thought for the Day Change your life today. Don t gamble on the future, act now, without delay. COFFEE WITH A COP Simone de Beauvoir Joke of the Week 1. A man went to a psychiatrist for his phobia. "Doc," he said, "I've got trouble. Every time I get into bed, I think there's somebody under it. I get under the bed, I think there's somebody on top of it. Top, under, top, under. You gotta help me, I'm going crazy!" "Just put yourself in my hands for two years," said the shrink, "Come to me three times a week, and I'll cure your fears." "How much do you charge?" "A hundred dollars per visit." "I'll sleep on it," said the man. Six months later the doctor met the man on the street. "Why didn't you ever come to see me again?" asked the psychiatrist. "For a hundred buck's a visit? A bartender cured me for ten dollars." "Is that so! How?" "He told me to cut the legs off the bed!" 2. A woman has twins, and gives them up for adoption. One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named 'Amal.' The other goes to a family in Spain, they name him Juan'. Years later; Juan sends a picture of himself to his mum. Upon receiving the picture, she tells her husband that she wished she also had a picture of Amal. Her husband responds, ''But they are twins. If you've seen Juan, you've seen Amal.'

14 Cocos (Keeling) Islands News (cont d) Berita Pulu Cocos (Keeling) (seterusnya) Administrator and Prime Minister discuss Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands in Canberra Every few months I travel to Canberra and Perth to meet with various Ministers and Departmental representatives to provide a formal update on both Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. This latest visit was a good opportunity to introduce to key players our new Regional Investment Officer Madi Signa, a born and bred Cocos Malay. We had a very positive meeting with Prime Minister Morrison and his team to provide an update on the current status of both Territories. The Prime Minister has been to Christmas Island before and said he was very interested in the future of both Christmas and Cocos. He said that he was pleased and very supportive of Minister Ley initiating a community consultation process into the potential issuing of a casino licence for Christmas Island. We further discussed that work on Christmas Island's Strategic Plan has been progressing well and that it will be publically released by the end of the year. In terms of Cocos we advised that the community engagement process for the Cocos (Keeling) Islands Strategic Plan will kick off in the next few weeks. Other high-level meetings in Canberra included the Territories Minister Sussan Ley and the Environment Minister Melissa Price where Parks and waste management on Christmas and Cocos were discussed. Minister Price indicated that she would be visiting the Indian Ocean Territories early next year. In my role as Chair of the Emergency Management Committees on Christmas and Cocos, I visited the headquarters of Emergency Management Australia and toured the Australian Government s Crisis Coordination Centre for the first time. I also met with Dr. Steven Kennedy, Head of the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, which is the Commonwealth Department directly responsible for Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, to discuss the future of the Indian Ocean Territories. Being aware of the importance of tourism development for Christmas and Cocos, I paid a flying visit to Sydney on my way back home to meet with the senior tourism focal point in Austrade and with John O Sullivan, the Managing Director of Tourism Australia. Interestingly they advised that one of Tourism Australia s Top 10 social media posts of all time was a post about Christmas Island. Let s get Cocos in the top ten as well.

Pulu Panjang: Home Island: Appointment di bulk billed ke Medicare Berbagai pilihan frame fasyen dan sunglasses 10 Tips for Going Plastic-Free For Beginners Choose reusable items wherever possible - This one seems obvious, but it is easy to compromise if we do not take time to plan our movements, read labels, explore alternatives, and make intentional decisions. It not only decreases your impact on the environment but often works out to less money spent on useless junk in the long-run. Ditch plastic straws - Heard it before? Then why are you still using plastic straws or takeout coffee cups for that matter? Buy some beautiful stainless-steel straws and pop them in every bag you own; and your children s backpacks. Repurpose - Where possible, repurpose the plastic containers. Make flower pots of yogurt containers, bird feeders of plastic bottles. Plastic education - Though plastic is still plastic in any form, there are types like Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) which is biodegradable. These types still require chemical decomposition and emit carbon dioxide during the process. Speak up - Be the person at the supermarket who have brought their own reusable shopping bags and has some extras in the car just in case. Say no to extra fruit plastic covers. Show off your reusable bags when you use them as beach bags, or luggage, or picnic baskets. Get creative - It is far better to get creative about ways to avoid plastic and to seek out ecofriendly materials. These have the added benefit of disposing of themselves in non-harmful ways, saving you time and energy compared to responsible plastic use. Support local reduction and recycling initiatives - Support local recycling initiatives by recycling plastic and encouraging others to do it, too. Support educational initiatives by being a good example of how plastic and other recycling is supposed to look in a regular home on a regular day. 15 Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. The environment is counting on it.

21 Public Notices (cont d) Notis notis Umum (seterusnya) Where you are injured catastrophically in a motor vehicle incident These are short articles about legal issues that may interest you. They are not legal advice. You should always get individual legal advice for your situation. Sometimes, a person is injured catastrophically in a motor vehicle incident. They may be the driver of a vehicle, a passenger in the vehicle, a pedestrian, or a cyclist. It may be someone else s fault, or it may not be. Prior to 1 July 2016 it was only if it was someone else s fault (that person had been negligent in their driving) that a claim could be made against them through the Insurance Commission of WA (ICWA). If it was the fault of the person who was injured, or no-one s fault, there was no-one to make a claim against and the person injured could not receive damages for their losses. To overcome this lack of cover, the WA State government expanded motor injury insurance under the Motor Vehicle (Catastrophic Injuries) Act 2016 (the Act) to provide for the lifetime treatment, care and support of people who are very badly injured in a motor vehicle incident. No-one has to be at fault for an injured person be covered. It applies to people injured in WA on or after 1 July 2016, where a motor vehicle is involved, but not on private property. The person s injuries have to be very, very serious. It covers spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple amputations, severe burns and/or permanent traumatic blindness. If a person is eligible they are covered for medical and dental treatment, prostheses, rehabilitation, domestic help, respite care, ambulance and access to return to work programmes. It does not cover: If you were involved in organised motor sports events, including practice sessions. Loss of earnings. Non-pecuniary losses (non-monetary losses, also called general damages), which is pain and suffering, loss of amenities of life, loss of enjoyment of life and shortening of your life span. If an unregistered vehicle was involved on a private property. Unregistered vehicles not on private property are covered by the scheme. Accidents involving vehicles that cannot be registered such as quad bikes, motor cross bikes, trikes and off-road vehicles. Accidents from acts of terrorism. A notification of a catastrophic injury can be made online or by contacting the ICWA on +61 (8) The ICWA will make a decision about eligibility and whether anyone is liable (and therefore a claim can be made against them). You are initially accepted into the scheme as an interim participant for a period of at least 2 years. Following this, if your injuries have not stabilised, and a decision cannot be made yet as to whether you need to be a lifetime participant, the period for which you are an interim participant can be extended. Otherwise, a decision is made as to whether you can be a lifetime participant. There is a dispute resolution mechanism to resolve disputes about your eligibility to enter/stay in the scheme and to resolve disputes about treatment, care and support decisions. The dispute resolution begins with a review in ICWA but can then proceed to an independent panel. If you dispute a decision about eligibility, you must do so in writing within 28 days of the decision. You must request a review, stating clearly that you disagree with the decision and why and providing any supporting documents. You must also give your full name and address and contact details. The care that you receive under the scheme includes: Medical treatment Dental treatment Ambulance transport Respite care services Rehabilitation Domestic assistance Aids and appliances Prostheses Educational and vocational training Home and transport modifications Attendant care services. Your treatment, care and support must be assessed as being necessary and reasonable. That is, it should maximise your independence, help you in daily living activities so that you can participate in the community and/or work, be value for money, be effective and have evidence backing up that it is effective, and should be provided by ICWA, rather than by other agencies that normally offer such services.

You are not covered for injuries or disabilities not related to the motor vehicle accident, nor for services that are provided by a non-approved provider of services and nor for any services that are not allowed under the Regulations under the Act. There are lists of many services that are not allowed (excluded) in the Regulations.

23 Public Notices (cont d) Notis notis Umum (seterusnya) Captain con: romance scam leaves a WA woman in its wake Following on from Hugo and Dave s recent Keeping Safe Online presentation, here s another example of a common scam that is hitting inboxes. A fraudster is currently using stolen social media images to pose as a ship captain in a romance scam that has conned a WA woman out of more than $10,000. Consumer Protection is warning that false identities featuring the same man s photos continue to appear on dating and social media platforms. Claiming to be called Captain Thomas Steve, the scammer connects with woman on Instagram and then Google Hangouts. The WA victim, Fay, believed she was also corresponding separately with Thomas teenage daughter, Sonia Steve, and sent money for Sonia s birthday and school activities, followed by bank transfers totalling more than $9,000 to receive a jewellery package that Thomas claimed to have sent via a company called Westline Delivery. This scam takes a toll both financially and emotionally. I felt very depressed and naïve. I lost my trust in people, Fay said. He was quite convincing and it seemed like the real thing. It was a huge lesson for me and I hope others will be more cautious, especially if anyone asks for money. The scammer s profile featured stolen images of a real Danish ship captain, who said he was frustrated by the ongoing misuse of his photos to create false identities. Apparently mine is one of the most copied profiles on the internet. I receive a lot of messages from people who think I m the person they ve been talking to, he said. The Westline Delivery website ( is also fake, using false contact details and staff images taken from other businesses. Consumer Protection Commissioner David Hillyard urged consumers to be very careful online, particularly when chatting with people overseas. In Western Australian alone, more than $2.6 million has been lost in dating and romance scams already this year, Mr Hillyard said. Alongside the financial losses are the significant emotional impacts for victims of the deception, as well as people who are misrepresented online, such as the real Danish captain in this case. Don t become isolated or secretive about an online relationship. Chat to the person by video, such as on Skype, to make sure they look like their profile picture. Connection or just con? Some romance scam tips: Be open to the idea that there are lots of scammers online. Do an internet search of the person s name including words like romance scam. Do a reverse image search of the person s profile picture using Google Images or Tin Eye to see where else it s been used. Don t send money. Alarm bells should ring if requests for money are made this can happen within days, weeks or months of meeting someone online. Be wary if someone suggests moving the conversation to another forum, such as . Don t accept Facebook friend requests from strangers. Be careful about the personal information or compromising material you share. Talk to trusted family or friends for a second opinion. Avoid becoming isolated. If you agree to meet someone in person, let your family and friends know where you ll be.
