it a thought i unbuttoned my blouse freeing one of my not insubstantial breasts only to be met with frosty glares from some elderly fellow diners the female proprietor then had the unmitigated gall to come up and say what sounded like you disgusting slattern hippy scum like you should be put to death are you going to squat on the table and move your bowels next but could have been as she later claimed i m very sorry but you re making some of the other patrons uncomfortable would you mind covering up a bit like whatever even if this gender traitor did sugarcoat her sentiments who is she to try and crush my life-giving teats under her fascist jackboot of course i tweeted about the event and within minutes an angry mob of sleep-deprived leaky-nippled mothers had gathered in front of the restaurant with flaming torches and lengths of rope several wanted to set the place alight with the owner and her uptight customers trapped inside to make the point you don t presume to oppress inner westie women without paying a terrible price but some moderates in the crowd prevailed and all that ended up happening was a social media hate campaign that will hopefully see this woman s business

community life r oad test rant enough already build the m4 it s been a rocky road since the last federal election how time flies i mused while sitting in my car on parramatta road during my torturous commute from marrickville at least i was being allowed to sit ­ as i edged forward past the bus idling in the next lane i could see its passengers standing in the aisles sweat glistening on their grim faces i had it comparitively easy despite all the rain the heat and humidity is stifling and i beg for relief where oh where is that holy grail of holy grails the start of the m4 motorway at concord traffic is banked up as far as the eye can see just passing burwood bus depot on the left must be getting closer now another 20 metres or so and then i wondered why is this happening let s take a closer look in nsw especially in sydney we don t have a good record of finishing things we have started what has gone wrong for the premier city in the premier state delay after delay has hit plans to improve this section of the road the bottleneck is ultimately not parramatta road itself but rather those entrusted with managing it for the public they say the buck stops at the top and how true that is but finally barry o farrell has decided to rectify the situation with a tunnel between concord and ashfield tony abbott has also given a pledge to make this happen both are liberals but you d think their initiative would receive support across the political spectrum could it be there will be finally be a simple environmentally sound tunnel something that those in suburbs such as bexley and surry hills have lived with for the greater good of sydney motorists for years not an easy project but with most of it reportedly going under parramatta road there will be no decimation of residential property areas a win-win situation for me you mums dads art centres of excellence it s art month which means one thing in the inner west local galleries are buzzing with colour and creativity the inner west has always been a hub of arts and culture even if you never venture into any of the numerous galleries that line the streets you re likely to bump into art anywhere and everywhere from guerilla artworks knitted onto telegraph poles throughout newtown to the stunning sculptures that dot the glebe foreshore walk however for those of you who need a little more direction here are a few fantastic destinations to take in a little art while supporting artist-run or non-profit initiatives free exhibitions on display with the added advantage that library hours are generally more accommodating than most gallery hours during art month leichhardt will be hosting a photographic exhibition by marylin taylor while balmain will display paintings by wayne ashton one+2 art studios and gallery this fabulous studio and gallery is one of the largest not-forprofit artists spaces in the inner west and the country it s based out of two properties in lilyfield and rozelle and provides facilities for over 85 fine artists working across every kind of medium from painting to sculpture and photography boomalli aboriginal artists co-operative this gallery has been supporting indigenous and torres straight islander artists since 1987 making it one of the oldest aboriginal owned and operated galleries in australia it s run with the help of volunteers and aside from a grand exhibition space this leichhardt building is also used as studio space for educational workshops and community meetings this march they are exhibiting a members show esp gallery this notdetail of a wayne ashton piece showing at balmain library on workshops are held in the space too it really is an asset to the local arts scene for-profit space in marrickville features diverse works by local artists who also run the gallery on a volunteer basis just because that s how much they love art it s a homey and inviting little space with four separate rooms that are affordable for artists to work and display in also recommended at the vanishing point gallery tortuga studios newsagency gallery alpha house and addison road centre n nm chrissie cotter gallery marrickville council has essentially given this gallery to the people ­ any person or group wanting to display their work or hold a cultural event is welcome to submit an application and entry to the gallery is free exhibitions change regularly so there s always something new and different going leichhardt and balmain libraries people often view libraries as stuffy places filled with old books but if you take the time to investigate you may be pleasantly surprised with what you find these two local libraries often have what a classic music dancing and stunning surroundings ­ what better way to spend a sunday music lovers can rejoice as

greens running in the seat of grayndler have any say in it they have chosen this to be one of their platform issues they will oppose it speaking as someone who believes in social justice i believe their m4 policy is just one example of how the greens have lost their way it is the duty of all parties and candidates to look after the environment no one organisation has a monopoly over caring for the planet but in the coming months the inner west greens will ask all of us to go through the torture of the last two and a half years all over again the kind of gridlocked torture we all have been

serves 1 2 free range eggs handful of ham shredded dollop of butter handful of feta crumbled small bunch of coriander roughly chopped a drizzle of truffle oil salt and pepper for seasoning jared on the battle of the bulge good fats vs bad fats there i was sitting minding my own business when i overheard a dieting friend of mine say oh i can eat that fat is fine good fat that is not bad fat what do fats know they are being judged like this could a bad fat try really hard at school do good deeds never use bad words and become good if so then it would only stand to reason that a `good fat may find itself in the wrong crowd of rebellious types who smoke and use too much salt and start acting up in an effort to fit in and become bad if that were possible then it would not be impossible to imagine that a fat who was born into a wealthy family in 1820 trained to become a nurse and was a good fat could become a bad fat when during the crimean war under this fat s care people were more likely to die in hospital than ever before then around 1855 that same fat could outline procedures tackling hygiene improved hospital conditions and healthy diets for recovering patients which arguably saves the lives millions from then on,so causing the bad fat to be a good fat once again yay yes i would agree that this particular fat shares a striking resemblance with florence nightingale however i assure you it is purely coincidental oh hold on my friend was talking about the fat we consume and the positive or adverse health benefits that come from consuming these fats for example monounsaturated polyunsaturated omega 3 and omega 6 are all good fats versus saturated and trans fats which are bad i apologise the modern diet often confuses me the florence nightingale reference may seem a little silly but so is the amount of noise and mucking about that goes on about healthy eating did you know that if you eat heaps of fresh fruit vegetables and fish some meat and avoid processed foods you will not only improve your health but the health of your kids and the planet it s that simple eat well n jared ingersoll 1 lightly whisk the eggs in a bowl 2 melt a dollop of butter in a pan and quickly fry the shredded ham so the edges are slightly crispy then set aside for a moment 3 using the same pan coat the whole pan with the whisked eggs making sure the mixture is evenly distributed season with salt and pepper 4 once eggs are about 30 per cent cooked spread the ham feta and coriander all over let it sit for about a minute then fold the omelette over and turn off the heat don t worry if it looks runny the remaining heat will cook the eggs as you plate up carmen s creativity extends to the kitchen 5 drizzle a bit of truffle oil over the omelette and serve with a piece of sourdough or dark rye toast my drawings i try to eat healthy most days and drawing snacks is an outlet for me to release certain cravings see my daily drawings at do you have a signature dish i m not the most amazing cook but i do love a good omelette making an omelette is almost like a religious experience for me and anyone who has tasted them seems to agree that it is my signature dish how would you describe your cooking style at home i like simple quality meals using locally sourced produce i d like to think that i m a tidy cook but in reality i am the messiest cook in the kitchen what ingredients do you always have in your kitchen eggs and truffle oil it is such a great combination and you can have it anytime of the day if you could invite anyone over for dinner whom would you invite it would have to be hugh fearnley-whittingstall from river cottage i love his philosophy on food and communities he has such a cheeky persona on television as well i m sure he would be loads of fun at a dinner party at home with carmen hui carmen hui is a marrickville artist and omelette lover who often finds herself inspired by food she is one of the contributing artists to the sweets workshop in summer hill who are part of m.o.s.t marrickville s open studio trail did food bring you and the sweets workshop together i have always been a big fan of sweets workshop due to their strong focus on local designers and artists i was lucky enough to be part of their snack attack exhibition it was a super fun exhibition as it was launched alongside the summer hill food fair which i must say is one of the best annual food fairs around the illustration i submitted was called `breakfast line-up which featured all my favourite breakfast condiments my mouth waters every time i look at that illustration you often sketch tasty things like nutella and donuts what do you find so inspiring about food this year i started a `sketch-a-day project but thinking up what to draw daily is a lot harder than i imagined so often my drawings are about something that i ve seen or craved that day i guess without realising food has become a major subject matter in 10

since they are an essential part of every bathroom there is a need to consider certain things before actually buying this necessary plumbing item the wall-hung toilet suites are gaining popularity in sydney due to their sleek looks and stylish structure in the past people mostly installed floor-mounted toilets as these were relatively inexpensive when compared with wall-hung toilets however many brands have come up with affordable wall-hung toilet suites and this has opened up a number of options for the people who want that sleek style and luxury in their bathroom an in-wall toilet is mounted to the wall and the plumbing is fully or partially connected through the floor whereas a wall-hung toilet suite is hung from the wall with no floor support and has an external cistern or a cistern fitted in the wall all of its required plumbing is through the wall the wall-hung toilet suites offer many benefits one of the biggest being that they use less space in the bathroom as the cistern is mounted in the wall cavity this feature makes the wall-hung toilet suites ideal for small bathrooms these toilet suites also enhance the look of the bathroom as they appear to simply float above the floor which creates a sleek modern look to the bathroom furthermore because the toilets are mounted on the wall it becomes easy to clean the floor around it and the toilet such toilets are so easy to maintain and clean as there is no gap between the wall and the toilet suite so there is no scope of accumulation of dirt and dust no one likes to do any extra housework they don t have to do so why not consider a wall-hung toilet next time your makeover your bathroom n for more information contact salvi messina from renovations boys on 1300 go boys or visit should we be forced to pay more true cost pricing if petrol was priced at its `true cost we would all be paying much more to fill up this month a study by bloomberg new energy finance showed conclusively that energy from renewables is now cheaper than that from new build fossil fuels that sounds too good to be true but people around the world are beginning to use the study to show that the future is now many have argued that new build renewables need subsidies to keep up with existing coal and gas plants on price however the reality is that the need for more base load energy probably won t be necessary until 2020 at which point it looks like renewables should be the obvious choice for future power generation based on price not to mention the environmental impacts this whole story got me thinking about the idea of true cost pricing when you look at subsidies pollution and wars many products cost a lot more than the price tag we see from the environmental clean up to raised health care costs many products are funded by taxpayers indirectly for example famers often specifically receive subsidies to grow certain crops like oats corn wheat or beef and they grow them using petro chemicals pesticides and fertilisers the run-off from these chemicals spreads through the watershed into rivers drinking water and our oceans health costs rise and oceans acidify but no one is held accountable industrial animal farming is listed as the biggest producer of greenhouse gasses globally add in land use deforestation and higher healthcare costs and it s nowhere near the price you pay the question is always is it worth it when you can purchase quality fruit and veg from smaller local famers that generally work without subsidy and with fewer chemicals petrol is another obvious example where the price is nowhere near what it would be if oil companies had to pay for the environmental damage they cause or the wars fought to protect their stake in oil-rich countries the true price of a litre of petrol would be much higher without subsidies and taxpayers picking up the difference the same can be said for coal gas and other non-renewables at the end of the day however the issue isn t always black and white lower food and petrol prices today means more food on the table for many families subsidised coal plants means electricity to make things people want and need however if people were forced to pay the true cost or we subsidised things based on social value we might have a better chance at keeping the planet habitable beyond the next generation n adam taylor co-op coordinator at
