Clues to saving Barrier Reef could come from coral thriving in warming oceans

While warming oceans are putting much of the Great Barrier Reef under serious threat, some coral is actually flourishing under these tough conditions.

Little-known reefs off the coast of north-western Australia have shown extraordinary resilience and are thriving, scientists have discovered.

The extraordinary resilience of the colourful corals of the Bonaparte Archipelago, a string of several hundred small islands and submerged banks off the Kimberley coast, might offer a solution to struggling reefs elsewhere, said lead researcher Zoe Richards of the Western Australian Museum.

The local reefs and islets, created as a result of rising seas thousands of years ago, are in an intertidal zone with huge tidal movements of up to eight metres that exposes the corals at low spring tide for more than three hours and then entirely submerges them during high tide.

“This is part of the reason why the corals are so tolerant to heat stress,” Dr Richards explained.

“One minute they are out of the water exposed to the sun then the next they are submerged, surrounded by sediment-laden water which is ripping around really fast in the current. So, corals growing on these reefs have become accustomed to change and have grown to tolerate a wider range of conditions than those in more stable sub-tidal environments.”

Being relatively close to the centre of marine biodiversity of Indonesia, this coral community probably gets replenished from there, she added. “In addition, there are no large urban centres or agricultural developments nearby – so the waters are near-pristine with little water pollution,” Dr Richards said.

She is investigating other possible reasons for the corals’ resilience. These include an abundance of photo-protective pigments that reflect light at low tide, the secretion of mucous that acts as a natural sunscreen and the existence of symbiotic partners, such as the micro-organism cyanobacteria, which can handle the heat.

“It may also be that the Bonaparte corals may feed on small particles in the water at high tide and reduce their metabolic rate during low tide,” Dr Richards said.

Finally, she said, high levels of sediment in the water may help offset some of the light stress while the strong currents help the water to mix.

“The Kimberley corals provide hope that corals may be able to adapt to warming environments – and the opportunity to further explore what traits enhance stress resistance,” Dr Richards said.

“Armed with this knowledge, we can further explore whether stress tolerance can be boosted or bred into corals from other areas, such as the Great Barrier Reef, which is highly susceptible to climate change.”

Taylor Swift in Brisbane: flawless beyond her 26 years

Taylor Swift performs during her ‘1989’ World Tour. Photo: Mark MetcalfeTaylor Swift had a blank space, baby, and on Saturday night, she wrote Brisbane’s name.
Nanjing Night Net

The 1989 World Tour hit Suncorp Stadium in a blaze of colour, energy and an endless array of midriff-baring costumery before tens of thousands who packed the venue to worship at the altar of T.Swift.

“Good evening Brisbane, I’m Taylor,” she told the adoring crowd, before going on to add, “and I was born in 1989.”

Glad we got that one cleared up early.

At a stadium where the most fervent support is usually reserved for Queensland’s state of origin team, the American songstress inspired equally ardent devotion.

It was in Brisbane late last decade where she played her first Australian gig as a teenager, she told the crowd, at “a small bar”, about as stark a contrast you could find to the stadium spectacular of her 2015 return to the city.

That “small bar” was the Tivoli, in a tour that came on the back of her first international number one, the Romeo and Juliet-inspired Love Story, which she said on Saturday night, she wrote on her bedroom floor as a 17-year-old.

The country-style song that reached number one in 2008 made Saturday night’s set list late in the piece, and while well received, was clearly demonstrative of how far the singer’s style had evolved from her Nashville roots to the pure pop of last year’s 1989.

And it was that pure pop, or one song in particular, everyone in the crowd came to see.

The mega hit Shake it Off was delivered in a spectacular blaze of colour and energy, that had the entire crowd on its feet, shaking it off with her.

The 178 centimetre singer who almost singlehandedly brought back the high waisted short shorts had clearly inspired a legion of women in the crowd, many of whom were bopping along in their own Swift-esque shorts and crop top combinations.

It was a song that clearly demonstrated the culmination of the pop princess’s evolution.

From the youthful optimism of Love Story, which just didn’t seem to quite fit any more, to 2012’s assertive We are Never, Ever Getting Back Together to Bad Blood from 1989, an ode to the betrayal of a friend, Swift has, like Pink before her, clearly chosen her own path, and it’s one that speaks to legions of fans of all ages.

The hordes of primary school girls and teenagers in the crowd, numbers of whom suggest the singer’s Brisbane concert numbers would have halved had it been held on a school night, clearly demonstrate the widespread appeal of her new pop style alone.

But her willingness to use her own heartbreak as inspiration for her songwriting, and then, by way of Shake it Off deliver a big, “I don’t give a shit what you think” has propelled her into a new stratosphere of power.

It’s one that clearly resonates with her largely female fan base. At just a week shy of her 26th birthday, the singer is already an almost unparalleled force in the performance world.

Her almost flawless stadium show belies a maturity well beyond her years and her lack of ego clearly contributes to the ardent fandom she enjoys.

It’s a magnetism that makes it hard to imagine her star will do anything but continue to rise. Sadly for many, this may mean her days of performing at the Tivoli may never come again.

Kooringal Colts bring up first win of season

INCOMING: Kooringal Colts paceman Will Morley fires down a delivery as his team tore through St Michaels on Saturday. Picture: Laura HardwickWagga cricket premiers Kooringal Colts’ title defence has finally picked up some momentum.
Nanjing Night Net

The Colts scored their first win of the season and condemned St Michaels to their first loss at Wagga Cricket Ground on Saturday.

After a lower order resurgence, led by Jeremy Bunn, on the first day of the match Colts were able to set the ladder leaders 235.

It was a target the Saints never looked liked reeling in.

Jordan Lawrence got St Michaels off to a fast start before departing for 34 and coach Ryan Forsyth looked dangerous before being dismissed for 60.

However once Forsyth was dismissed the rest of the St Michaels batting order crumbled, allowing Colts to secure a comfortable win.

Colts captain Keenan Hanigan was relieved to finally get a win on the board, six rounds into the season.

“We needed that win,” Hanigan said.

“Obviously the monkey is off our back now, we were due for it so I’m very happy and very pleased with the way we played that game.”

Off-spinner Andrew Dutton did most of the damage, picking up five wickets and finishing with figures of 5-25 off 12 overs including four maidens.

His skipper thought it was his best performance since returning from England two seasons ago.

“Dutto bowled really good,” Hanigan said.

“It was probably the best I’ve seen him bowl since he got back from England.

“He was real consistent yesterday and I was really pleased with the way he bowled.”

Hanigan’s dismissal of Forsyth was the catalyst for the 86-run win.

When Forsyth was removed, Saints were 4-121 and they lost their next five wickets for 10 runs before being bowled out for 148.

Hanigan thought Forsyth’s dismissal was the key.

“Forsyth got off to a good start and was smashing a few we were looking to get him as soon as possible,” he said.

“We ended up getting him and once he got out the wickets started to tumble.

“To our credit we were pretty patient, just waiting for that wicket to come, and once we got it they just started to tumble.”

The Colts have another big test to finish the season, taking on South Wagga in the two-day clash before the Christmas break.

The Blues have only lost the one match this season, in controversial circumstances, and are coming off a big batting performance against Wagga RSL.

“They are in form, got a lot of runs yesterday and in my eyes they are probably the team to beat this year,” Hanigan said.

“They are always consistent but we are up for the challenge and it would be nice to get another win on the board before Christmas but we know we have a big job ahead of us.”

“I’m bloody lucky”: Jockey Kody Nestor

Kody Nestor suffered severe shoulder injuries in Friday’s fall at Mudgee. Photo: JANIAN McMILLAN (梧桐夜网racingphotography南京夜网419论坛)DUBBO jockey Kody Nestor will undergo surgery this week on shoulder injuries suffered in Friday’s horrific fall in the Mudgee Gold Cup (1600m).
Nanjing Night Net

The popular rider described the aftermath of the five-horse pile up as being “like a war zone” as riders and animals lay on the ground, but conceded things could have been a whole lot worse.

Nestor was riding Scottish Border for Hawkesbury trainer Garry Frazer, and was caught in the middle of the carnage that marred the $35,000 feature event, which ultimately saw just seven runners cross the line and Garry McCarney’s gelding Fox Solid first past the post.

Stewards have opened an inquiry into the fall but adjourned it in order to be able to take evidence from the riders involved.

Nestor suffered a dislocated and broken shoulder in the fall, which occurred when Devilgate Road (Aaron Bullock) appeared to clip the heels of the leader Lancelot, ridden by Anthony Cavallo.

It started a chain reaction that saw Scottish Border, Are You Sure (Jay Ford) and Goldstone (Glenn Lynch) all hit the turf.

He was airlifted from the track to Orange hospital, and after being treated he returned home with wife Anna on Saturday afternoon.

“I’m bloody lucky. We all are really because it’s one of the worst falls I’ve seen, let alone been involved in,” he said yesterday.

“I remember the whole thing and when I hit the deck I looked up and there were blokes on the ground and horses everywhere. It was terrible, it was like a war zone.

The fall at Mudgee is one of the worst in recent memory.

“I was following Mick Travers (All Sixes) and then I saw that first horse come down. Mick’s horse got over it but then mine couldn’t and I came down hard on my left shoulder and just rolled with it.

“Once things had settled a bit I got up and looked at my right arm and my legs and thought I was okay but when I looked for my left I couldn’t see it because it was about three inches away from where it should have been.

“That’s when the pain kicked in and I laid back down and started swearing and carrying on. It was excructiating but everyone, from the stewards to the ambulance officers and nurses, were great and they looked after me and gave me some pain drugs to make me as comfortable as possible.”

After a couple of nights with minimal sleep, Nestor will attempt to get to Sydney on either Monday or Wednesday in order to undergo surgery to repair the shoulder.

“I can’t lay down so Anna has propped me up on the couch and I actually got a good couple of hours sleep while sitting up on Saturday night, but I got none on Friday,” he said.

“If I can fly on Monday I’ll try to get down there, otherwise it will be Wednesday, but I’m pretty keen to get the surgery done as soon as possible so I can start the rehab.

“I’ve watched the replay a couple of times and some people would probably be spooked off after a fall like that. I’d ride tomorrow if I could so I’ll do everything I can to be back as soon as possible.

“Now that I’ve had a bit of time to sit back and think about it I’m just glad everyone is okay.

“I know Mark Milton lost his horse, which is terrible, but I just shake my head how that was all.”

THE AFTERMATHJOCKEYS

* Kody Nestor – Dislocated and fractured left shoulder. Will go to Sydney on either Monday or Wednesday for surgery.

* Greg Ryan – Concussion and swelling in knee and ankle. Will assess before determining whether he will ride at Orange on Tuesday.

* Jay Ford – Broken hand. Will be assessed by doctors to determine if surgery is required

* Glenn Lynch – Badly fractured left foot and facial lacerations.

* Aaron Bullock – Fractured collarbone in three places and suffered concussion. Will also be assessed by doctors this week

HORSES

* Sooner Or Later – Suffered a broken leg in the incident and was put down.

* Are You Sure – Swelling and abrasions on hind leg. More will be known when swelling subsides

* Devilgate Road – Stiff and sore around the head and neck. Was knocked out for a short period. Will be retired

* Scottish Border – Jarred up in the legs after doing three laps of the course after the fall. Will be fine.

* Goldstone – Stiff and sore with some skin off nostrils and lips but otherwise fine.

Premier push for regional voices

REGIONAL PUSH: Premier Daniel Andrews with local members Maree Edwards and Jacinta Allan in Bendigo last week. Picture: NONI HYETTPREMIER Daniel Andrews will strongly urge Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this week to include regional areas in its new cities ministry, saying governments shouldn’t focus only on thenation’s capitals.
Nanjing Night Net

Mr Andrews will meet with Mr Turnbull at aCouncil of Australian Governments meeting in Sydney.

“I’m going to make sure that at COAG, the prime minister and his government understand that it’s not good enough to have a capital cities agenda, you’ve got to have a capital cities and regional cities agenda,” Mr Andrews said in Bendigo on Friday.

“Whether it’s Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong or smaller regional centres like Shepparton, we need to make sure the national government is not all about Melbourne and Sydney and Canberra.”

Shortly after becoming prime minister in September, Mr Turnbull appointedJamie Briggs asthe first Minister for Cities and the Built Environment.

He also signalled he had a greater interest in urban planning projects in capital cities than Tony Abbott, whom he ousted.

Mr Andrews said his government’s position that support for regional cities must be part of the federal government’s planning was“not negotiable”.

“Whether it’s infrastructure or education or health, it’s not just a capital cities agenda, it’s got to include regional cities,” Mr Andrewssaid.

“That’s the position of the Victorian government andwe do look forward to the prime minister agreeing.”

Mr Andrews believed support for his plan would come from premiers and chief ministers right across the country.

As part of the state government’s own efforts to improve regional areas,Mr Andrews said, senior staff appointed to Regional Development Victoria positions last weekwould help drive a“proper conversation” with regional communities about development.

Amongthem is former City of Greater Bendigo department directorStan Liacos who resigned from the council to take up a position as the Loddon Mallee regional director.

It was now the federalgovernments turn to step up, the premier added.

“If you are truly committed to making sure you govern in the interests of everyone…then you can have a cities ministry,” Mr Andrewssaid.

“What you can’t have is a capital cities ministry.”
