Scott Morrison's New Cabinet is Sworn In mimi.nguyen-ly 2018-08-282 views The new Cabinet has been sworn in on Aug. 28 at Government House Canberra, following a week of political upheaval that resulted in the emergence of Australia's sixth prime minister in less than 10 years.
Judge John Russo called a special hearing on Aug. 6, saying while there is legal precedent for gagging a defendant to keep order in court, he should not have taken such action.
On July 31, Russo asked deputies to tape Franklin Williams’ mouth shut, after Williams interrupted the judge multiple times during his sentencing for a series of armed robberies.
"I regret any impact or repercussions for my actions last week. I never want the fairness and justice that each of you deliver in your courtroom to be questioned, no matter the circumstances," Russo said.
The judge also decided to recuse himself from the case.

Stolen Pony Returns Home After Thieves Paint Its Hooves in Failed Disguise Effort mimi.nguyen-ly 2018-04-2335 views Stolen Pony Returns Home After Thieves Paint Its Hooves in Failed Disguise Effort A Dublin-based animal sanctuary has celebrated the return of a stolen Shetland pony which had its hooves painted a different color, and a distinctive marking on its head damaged in an attempt to disguise the animal. Videos from April 21 and 22 from My Lovely Horse Rescue (an organization which takes its name from a classic Father Ted episode), show the pony, named Polly Pockets, being returned to their care having gone missing on April 10. After a number of social media posts asking for help in finding Polly, an April 21 video from the organization announced she had been spotted. A call from the Irish Horse Rehoming Programme had informed My Lovely Horse Rescue that a woman had seen a pony that looked like Polly in Cloneygowan, County Offaly, in a wood. “They went back to where she was seen and there was our girl, barely recognisable as her distinctive mark was plucked from her face and her white hooves painted black.” A microchip scan confirmed that the pony was indeed Polly. The post added that the matter has been reported to police.
