SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Thousands of women protested on Saturday against a bill advancing in Brazil’s conservative Congress that would equate abortions after 22 weeks of pregnancy to homicide and establish sentences of six to 20 years in prison. The demonstrators marched along Sao Paulo’s main Paulista Avenue carrying banners rejecting the proposal, which they call the most repressive approach to women’s reproductive rights in decades. People of all ages, including many retirees and children, filled the streets chanting, “A child is not a mother, a rapist is not a father.” Abortion is allowed in Brazil only in cases of rape, fetal deformation or when the mother’s life is in danger. If the bill backed by evangelical lawmakers becomes law, abortions by rape victims would be considered homicide after 22 weeks gestation. Feminist groups criticized the proposed legislation for imposing harsher penalties than those given to rapists in Brazil. They...

THE High Court sent a man who had unlawful sex with his 14-year-old niece twice in 2018 in Makira-Ulawa Province to prison for nine years. The now 31- year-old defendant was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to two counts of Sexual Intercourse with a Child under 15 years of age. Judge John Keniapisia, in his sentencing remarks, said it was appropriate to impose such a concurrent sentence due to the serious aggravating factors mentioned in this case. “As I stand back and look at the sentence of 9 years, it is appropriate to impose such a concurrent sentence due to the serious aggravating factors mentioned above. “And this being a multiple offending, I mentioned above that this is a case where the aggravating factors far outweighed the mitigating factors. “The factors attracting considerable aggravation are breach of position of trust, sexual abuse on a young girl, repetitive offending and the...

The final Vivid drone show in Sydney has been cancelled due to “forecasted weather”, despite disappointed attendees reporting only overcast conditions. Organisers announced the keystone event of the annual light and culture festival would be cancelled just half an hour before it was due to get underway. Vivid Sydney stated on Instagram the drone show would “not proceed this evening” and would not be rescheduled as it was the last night of Vivid events. “We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Please be patient when exiting,” organisers wrote about 9.20pm on Saturday. The decision quickly drew the ire of attendees who braved cold and wet conditions to attend the even, with many pointing to the lack of apparent rainfall. “Since 9.10pm, no rain at the Opera House,” one person wrote. Another added: “Sitting here at Macquarie Chair and weather is fine. Thanks for the notice. 9.12pm”....

Becoming an airline pilot can be an excellent career choice for many reasons. Airline pilots often earn competitive salaries as they gain experience. The demand for pilots is generally stable, and in many regions, there is a growing need for pilots due to the expansion of the aviation industry and retirement of older pilots. The role of an airline pilot is highly respected and regarded as prestigious, often leading to a sense of pride and accomplishment.   DATA made available to Beyond the Scope by the Fiji Airways Pilots Union (FALPA) reveals 63 Fijians who were eager to become pilots have run out of money to complete their studies. The union states this is concerning. Currently, expatriate pilots outweigh locals who fly with the national airline, states FALPA president Gideon Leweniqila. FALPA has released details on 63 Fijians who are now facing financial hardships in completing their pilot training. All...

Lawyers acting for a former pilot accused of murdering two elderly campers have flagged 17 issues they claim are emblematic of the “completely hopeless” case, a jury has heard. Over two days this week, defence barrister Dermot Dann KC used his final opportunity to address the jury, saying the trial had been marked by a series of “increasingly desperate” manoeuvres by the prosecution. His client, Gregory Stuart Lynn, 57, is facing trial in Victoria’s Supreme Court after pleading not guilty to murdering Russell Hill, 74, and Carol Clay, 73, in March 2020. Prosecutors allege the former Jetstar captain killed the couple without lawful excuse at Bucks Camp in the Wonnangatta Valley, a day after they arrived for a camping trip on March 19. From the outset, the lawyers argued that while they could not prove the precise circumstances of the deaths, other than that Mrs Clay was shot in the...

INFLATION in Fiji is an ongoing problem, and it is something we should all be concerned about. In April this year, Fiji’s annual inflation rate – the rate at which the price of goods and services has increased – rose to 7.1 per cent, the highest observed in the past 10 years. The rise in prices have been a result of the VAT increases introduced in the last budget as well as other factors. It is important to note that once the prices of goods and services increase, it is very difficult to remove that price hike. Ongoing inflation causes prices to increase year after year, and due to the accumulative nature of inflation, it is fundamentally important for governments to ensure that inflation is minimised. So an increase of 7.1 per cent in one year is alarming. That 7.1 per cent increase is now fixed into prices around Fiji....
