Custody Notification Scheme

A Custody Notification Scheme is a 24-hour legal advice and support telephone hotline for any Australian Aboriginal person brought into custody, connecting them with lawyers from the Aboriginal Legal Service. It is intended to reduce the high number of Aboriginal deaths in custody by counteracting the effects of institutional racism. Where CNSs have been implemented, there have been dramatic reductions in the numbers of Aboriginal deaths in custody; the implementation of a CNS in all Australian states and territories was recommendation 224 of the 339 recommendations of the 1991 Australian Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody report. Most states and territories did not comply with the CNS recommendation for decades. About 340 Aboriginal people died in custody between the recommendation being made in 1991 and 2015. Between 1991 and 2019, over 400 Aboriginal people have died in custody; the Australian Capital Territory brought in a CNS in 1995. New South Wales brought in a CNS in 2000.

It was successful and has since been cited as a model. In 2016, one Aboriginal person died in custody in NSW. Police failed to notify the CNS, rather than there being any problem with the service itself. In May 2016, a report recommended; the report mentioned the death of Ms Dhu. The report was authored by Inspector of Custodial Services. In October 2016 Nigel Scullion, the federal Minister for Indigenous Affairs, offered to fund the first three years of implementation for any state that legislated a CNS; the Western Australian government rejected the offer. In March 2017, Dhu's family criticised both the major political parties in Western Australia for not supporting such a scheme; the incumbent Liberal Party voiced their opposition to the program, while the Labor Party said they would consider the scheme though had made no commitments. In October 2017, the Australian federal government was reported to be urging states and territories to implement a CNS. Attorney-General of Western Australia John Quigley supported such a program, saying "I think it life-saving legislation.

I'm sure if they took the late Ms Dhu into custody... if the Aboriginal Legal Service been contacted on day one it would have been a different outcome." An online petition calling for the scheme was signed by 20,000 people in less than one week. On 21 May 2018, it was announced that the WA state government had reconsidered the offer from the federal government to fund a CNS, that the service would be operational by the end of the year; the Aboriginal Legal Service of Western Australia will operate the service. As of 29 August the system has not been implemented due to inadequate funding, though negotiations for funding were ongoing, with John Quigley saying he hoped the service would be operational soon. In November 2018 it was announced the service would be operational in the first half of 2019; the service will cost $952,000 per year, with the Federal Government and State Government contributing $750,000 and $202,000 respectively. ALSWA will employ two support staff to run the service. In 2018, the Northern Territory agreed to implement a CNS.

The system attracted criticism for exempting protective custody and paperless arrests. There had been deaths in NT following exempted types of arrests. There are reports that the CNS legislation was drafted by the police. In some states, police have argued for provisions in police operational manuals rather than legislation. Victoria has some non-legislative CNS-like requirements in Victoria Police Manual’s instruction 113-1; the notifications are known as known as E* Justice Notifications. As of 2018, Victoria was expected to be the next state to legislate a CNS, with a proposed law being reviewed by the legislature. In 2018, representatives from South Australian and Queensland argued they had their own adequate systems in place, while Tasmania said they were considering the system but had not made a decision

The History of Flo & Eddie and the Turtles

The History of Flo & Eddie and the Turtles was a three-LP box set album from Flo & Eddie, issued in 1983 by Rhino Records. The first LP included a song recorded by an early incarnation of The Turtles under the name The Crossfires, a selection of rarities by The Turtles themselves, including a BBC session recording of their signature song "Happy Together", songs from their first post-Turtles album, The Phlorescent Leech & Eddie, from 1972; the second LP contained songs from their next 3 albums: Flo & Eddie, Illegal and Fattening, Moving Targets. The final LP in the set featured songs recorded for film and TV soundtracks, linked with excerpts from The Flo & Eddie Radio Show; this box set has never been reissued on CD. This was the first album in which Flo & Eddie had been allowed to use the name The Turtles since leaving White Whale Records, owners of the name, in 1970. Instead of duplicating tracks available on the Turtles' first five studio albums, reissued by Rhino the same year, the portion of the compilation dedicated to The Turtles contains otherwise out-of-print and unreleased material.

1912–13 Stoke F.C. season

The 1912–13 season was Stoke's fourth season in the Southern Football League. In 1913 the club reached its 50th year in existence. Stoke had ambitions to return to the Football League and the objective for the 1912–13 season was earn a top six place in the Southern League Division One; however Stoke failed spectacularly and ended up finishing bottom and being relegated to the Southern League Division Two. The season was a complete embarrassment to the directors and management and fans started to lose patience with manager Alfred Barker. With Alfred Barker still manager of the club there were high hopes that the 1912–13 season would see Stoke come good in the top division of the Southern League; the players who had served the club well over the past 12 months or so were all retained and new players were added to the squad to make competition for places harder. The main ambition was a top six place, but by Christmas time Stoke were bottom of the table and stayed there; the directors attributed relegation to bad luck.

William Smith, such a key player in attack missed most of the season through injury and his absence proved costly as Stoke had a poor forward line. Only 14 goals were scored in the first 15 matches summed up Stoke's problems and there was no upturn in fortune after Christmas and relegation was duly suffered and it was back to the drawing board once more. By the end of the season the directors came under considerable pressure from supporters as they were reluctant to accept a place back in Division Two and by the end of April 1913 no players had been offered a new contract contrary to previous practice; the directors accepted life in the Southern League Division Two again but fans vented their anger at them in the annual general meeting. Stoke's miserable season included a first round exit to fellow Southern League side Reading. Key: P = Matches played.
