Morning all! What happened while you were asleep? Well, we now know the name of the Berlin attacker, One Nation has a brand new confusing candidate, and a security guard caught a ball and we officially lost it.
German police add name to suspect for Berlin attack, still at large
Add the name Anis Amri, carve it high and long. In a matter befitting the wild west(ern Europe), German prosecutors have knocked up a wanted poster and offered the astronomical award of 100,000 Euros ($12 AUD) for information leading to his capture.

One can assume a very efficient manhunt is underway in Germany, as the law believe that Amri is wounded, alongside the class suffix of “armed and dangerous”.

One Nation candidate Shan Ju Lin claims that “good asians” will vote for her, Internet responds
Racism comes in many forms, wears many faces and speaks in many a language. Consider then the platitudes uttered by One Nation’s latest candidate, who divided the lines between “good” and “bad” on the basis of their proclivity to vote for her new party. But it is indeed a party that rages on a school night, as the music has since turned poor, and the volume of the conversation turned violent, and all the way up to eleven.
“There are two groups of Asians… The good Asians will be like me” – Shan Ju Lin, One Nation candidate. #auspol

The Internet responded dutifully in a matter you’d expect, with the cynical lols.
How can I qualify to become a Good Asian? Is there a course for it? https://t.co/eJY1vjUtOE

Man paid to sit in plastic chair at cricket catches cricket ball, hero to millions
As a long standing fan of cricket, you’re constantly on the back foot (cricket reference, ya gettit?), fielding criticism from those who find it “boring”. Boring is the operative term, but let me tell you this, it’s not, because this security guard bloke caught a ball when it was perfectly okay for him to do so.

You see that? Not a fan. Not a player. Someone who works for the stadium caught the ball, and did so in such an exciting fashion, that indeed is exciting.

We will also be providing packs this Christmas Eve to Sydney’s homeless which will include an inflatable bed.
By helping us know this information, you are making a gesture to Sydney’s homeless that you see them and you care about them.
