‘Our whole family has been amazed’: Steph Scott’s family comforted by Leeton’s love

DEARLY MISSED: Steph Scott.THE pain of Stephanie Scott’s death is still incredibly raw for her family.
Nanjing Night Net

But one thing that does give her loved onesnursing broken hearts strength is the support and love shown by the Leeton community.

One year after her death,the impact of her short life is still felt far and wide.

Her father, Robert Scott, said as time went on, the depth of their loss became clearer.

“It takes time to sink in what you’ve actually lost,” Mr Scott said.

“When it all happened in a bit of a hurry it was very sad and very distressing, but as time progresses you realise just how deep the loss is because of the way she’s impacted on your life.

“(The pain) is not just going to disappear,grieving is an ongoing process and when you’ve got someone who was such a delight to have in your life there’s a lot to miss.”

The Scott family still receives cards and letters filled with words of support and in return they attend events held in Stephanie’s honour and meet with people touched by their daughter.

In February, Mr Scott visited Leeton High School to see an amphitheatre being built in his daughter’s memory. When he was introduced as “Steph’s dad”, the students’ faces lit up.

On Saturday, Mr Scott and his wife, Merrilyn, were inAlbury to presentthe Stephanie Scott Cup at awomen’s league tag competition. Fittingly, the Leeton Greenieswon the event.

“Our whole family has been amazed at the way she’s been received,” Mr Scott said.

“It didn’t matter whether you met her for a day or she’d been part of your life for an extended period, she just had an impact on you.

“Shewas very vivacious, very genuine in what she said and the way she formed relationships with people.

“She was just an absolute joy, a happy girl who enjoyed her part in sports and the teaching life and being part of the Leeton community gave her a lot of pleasure.”

Mr Scott said his daughterhad coached Leeton High School’s girls soccer team. He said the winning teams in the Bill Turner Cup, an inter-school soccer competition, would be presented with Stephanie Scott Memorial Shields.

Data of nearly 50 million Turkish citizens leaked online

Hackers have apparently stolen a database that contains personal information about millions of Turks.Istanbul: Hackers have posted a database online that seems to contain the personal information of nearly 50 million Turkish citizens in what is one of the largest public leaks of its kind.
Nanjing Night Net

The Associated Press on Monday was able to partially verify the authenticity of the leak by running 10 non-public Turkish ID numbers against names contained in the dump. Eight were a match.

The leaked database contains 49,611,709 entries and divulged considerable private information, putting people at risk of identity theft and fraud. Entries include data such as national ID numbers, addresses, birthdates and parents’ names.

The hackers spotlighted the information for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, his predecessor Abdullah Gul, and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

The leak came with the message: “Who would have imagined that backwards ideologies, cronyism and rising religious extremism in Turkey would lead to a crumbling and vulnerable technical infrastructure?”

In a message on the lessons to be learned by Turkey, the hackers said: “Bit shifting isn’t encryption.”

The hackers also dedicated their stunt to the US saying: “We really shouldn’t elect [Donald] Trump, that guy sounds like he knows even less about running a country than Erdogan does.”

The site appears to be hosted by an Icelandic group that specialises in divulging leaks, using servers in Romania.

In an era where hackers frequently gain access to sensitive information, the Turkish government is not alone in facing a major breach.

Among the most serious recent incidents, the US government’s Office of Personnel Management revealed in April 2015 that hackers gained access to the personal information of more than 22 million US federal employees, retirees, contractors and others, and millions of sensitive and classified documents.

US officials believe a Chinese espionage operation infiltrated OPM’s records.

Darwin hospital accused of racially profiling Gurrumul Yunupingu

Nanjing Night Net

The manager of Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu has accused a Darwin hospital of racial profiling amid claims the Indigenous singer was not treated for internal bleeding for eight hours.

Skinny Fish Music managing director Mark Grose said Yunupingu was admitted to Royal Darwin Hospital on Easter Sunday with complications relating to an ongoing liver condition resulting from having hepatitis B as a child.

He told ABC radio that both he and Yunupingu’s long-time private nurse had left the singer in the emergency department with the expectation he would have immediate surgery to stop the bleeding.

But Grose said his client was left in the emergency department for more than eight hours, where he was not properly treated and was “essentially deteriorating, and from my perspective, bleeding to death”.

“I believe there was an assumption that he was a drinker, and his problems were caused by alcohol and that the effort going into saving him would be useless anyway because he’d just go back to drinking,” he told the ABC.

“Again, I’d just like to say his condition is not related to drinking.”

In a letter of complaint to the chief executive of the NT Health Department, Grose said Yunupingu deteriorated to the point of needing to be transferred to the intensive care unit.

“There are two assumptions that I can make, which are both very disturbing but need answering: was Gurrumul Yunupingu’s level of A&E care related to assumptions based on his race or is there a serious failure in the system that allows someone to be largely ignored in A&E while seriously ill?

In a statement, the Top End Health Service, which oversees the hospital, strongly rejected the claims and said an internal review of Yunupingu’s case determined his care was “timely and appropriate”.

“It is concerning it has been suggested that some care assumptions may have been made based on the patient’s race. I would like to categorically reject these claims,” executive director of medical services, Dinesh Arya, said.

Professor Arya said he had personally met Gurrumul on Monday and would extend an invitation for the singer and his carers to meet the clinicians responsible for his care to ask any questions about his treatment.

“The hospital has a proud multicultural staff and more than 60 per cent of patients admitted to Royal Darwin Hospital identify as Aboriginal. Claims of poor treatment due to a patient’s race have never been raised at the hospital and RDH will continue to provide the best possible service to all patients requiring treatment.”

Theft sours colourful project

SENSELESS CRIME: More than 30 desert roses have been stolen from the site.
Nanjing Night Net

FRUSTRATED Department of Infrastructure staff are at their wit’s end following the senseless theft of more than 30 plants installed as part of a beautification project in Katherine.

Local contractorCompass Cleaning and Ground Maintenancehadspent the past six weeks planting and nurturing desert roses in the vicinity of the iconic stockman statue on the corner of Katherine Terrace and Chambers Drive.

Regional Director for the Katherine Region Phil Harris said it was hard to fathom the motive of the offenders.

“Over the past week, Glen Hewitt and his team have spent a lot of time and energy planting around 80 desert rose plants,” he said.

“It’s very disappointing for all involved to find the plants ripped out a short period after they have gone in.

“So far, we’ve lost about 30 plants.”

Anyone with information about the theft, or who may have witnessed it,is urged to contact Katherine police or call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
