  4. A senior Huawei executive has criticised former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for urging the UK to boycott Huawei’s equipment when building out its 5G network. Turnbull gave a strongly-worded warning about Huawei’s 5G technology at a speech in London last week where he urged Britain not to use Huawei’s telecommunications equipment as it poses a national security risk. In response, Huawei’s director of corporate and public affairs for Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, published a 1,301 word blog post where he said “Australia will pay” as a result of Turnbull’s comments. A senior Huawei executive has criticised former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull for urging the UK to boycott Huawei’s equipment when building out its 5G network. Turnbull gave a strongly-worded warning about Huawei’s 5G technology at a speech in London last week where he urged Britain not to use Huawei’s telecommunications equipment as it poses a national security risk. On Thursday, Jeremy Mitchell, Huawei’s director of corporate and public affairs for Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, published a 1,301 word blog post where he said “Australia will pay” as a result of Turnbull’s comments. In the post, he criticised the former PM for believing the “myth” that there was an increased security risk in a 5G network. “The myth falsely suggests the edge or radio access layer of the network can’t be sufficiently secured in a 5G network,” said Mitchell. “This myth was born after the PM’s visit to the USA in February 2018. Problem is what they said (and Turnbull is now continuing to say) just isn’t true.” Australia was the first country to ban Huawei’s 5G equipment and Mitchell says Australian telcos will now end up paying more money to build their networks with inferior technology. “Now that Huawei is excluded from the Australian 5G mix, telco operators will be paying around 30% more for the second best technology,” he said.

  5. “I love you guys, I don’t think I’m going to make it.” That was the last text message photographer Daniela Federici remembers sending to her then husband and son from inside the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai. Around her as she wrote it, terrorists had started a deadly rampage. Ms Federici, 53, then hugged the rest of her 21-strong crew, who were with her in India making a TV documentary, before they all lay down on the ballroom floor to die together. The terrorists who attacked hadn’t yet found the dozens of guests and staff hiding in one of the hotel’s function rooms, but smoke and flames from fires they’d started were almost upon Ms Federici and her colleagues. Ms Federici, who is from Melbourne but now lives in New York, knew they couldn’t survive much longer. “We all lay down in a circle to die. We had all made peace,” she told nine.com.au. “I think being Australian there was a really pragmatic ‘just get over it’. “I started to shake, realising this is the end - not so much for me, but for my son, realising he’s not going to have a mother.” DEADLY THREE DAYS A total of 166 people were killed in the terror attacks, which began on November 26, 2008, and lasted for 60 hours. More than 30 staff and guests at the Taj Mahal Palace were among them. Another hotel, a hospital, train station, café, and Jewish centre were also targeted. Australians Brett Gilbert Taylor and Doug Markell were killed Federici was one of the lucky ones. And she’s among survivors who were interviewed by makers of Australian-produced movie, Hotel Mumbai, which stars British actor Dev Patel, best known for Lion, and Slumdog Millionaire. Director Anthony Maras tells the horrific story of that day through the eyes of the hotel’s staff and guests. HORROR HOTEL Federici’s ordeal started hours before she sent that text message - when her and her crew entered the hotel’s lavish lobby, just seconds before the terrorists. The team’s flight had been delayed, so they were two hours late for a meeting with the hotel's public relations boss. As they checked in, Ms Federici told staff she had to rush to the meeting, which was in the first floor bar. And while the receptionist tried to keep her back to fill out a form, she insisted on heading there immediately. Initially, Ms Federici thought the gun shots were fireworks. “We were halfway up the staircase, they massacred everyone around us,” she told nine.com.au. “We could hear people screaming and bodies being thrown over that staircase. “We were ten seconds out of there.” Ms Federici and her team made it into the bar, and barricaded the doors. Along with dozens of other guests and staff they hid behind furniture, desperately hoping the gunmen wouldn’t find them. Shots were fired through the glass, the bullets ricocheting around the room. They needed to find somewhere safer - and forced an old door behind the bar open. It led out into the function rooms. They stumbled into an Indian wedding, barricaded the doors, and told everybody to stay quiet. NO ESCAPE While Federici and her crew tried to smash the ballroom windows with ice buckets, they couldn’t break the glass. They were trapped - and nobody was coming to help. Indian police were unarmed and any officers who entered were slaughtered. The county’s National Security Guard (NSG) didn’t arrive to end the siege for hours. Ms Federici, her crew and the other guests and staff were still hiding, 26 hours later, as chaos and death surrounded them. “There were points where explosions were through the buildings, there were terrorists on the roof,” she said. And while the terrorists never found them, the fire was edging closer. That was when Ms Federici messaged her now ex-husband and son, who was just three, to say goodbye. MIRACLE MOMENT However, suddenly, an escape route emerged. “Maybe 90 seconds after we all lay down, they threw a grenade off the roof, it cracked a window,” she said. “We took the huge curtains, tied them together and got 65 people out.” Ms Federici, who has photographed A-listers including Kylie Minogue and Kim Kardashian and has worked for fashion giants such as Chanel to Jimmy Choo, said the experience changed her life. She now avoids travelling to risky locations such as the Middle East because of her son, who is now 14, and is keen to focus on environmental causes. POIGNANT RETURN When the hotel re-opened two years later, Ms Federici was asked to photograph the emotional occasion. Ten members of Pakistan-based Islamic terror organisation called Lashkar-e-Taiba were blamed for the attacks, but the masterminds were never caught. In November, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced a $US5m reward leading to their conviction. Hotel Mumbai is out at cinemas on Thursday.

    Pat Cummins

    If Cummings wasn't an elite bowler he would be batting in our top 5, gives it everything and finally, the injury curse he had seems to be over, he is only 25 could be our all-rounder than can bowl 144ks, hope he gets the MOM.

    India vs Australia Series Banter/Sledging Thread

    Australian skipper Tim Paine continues to chirp behind the stumps against India At the MCG on Thursday, Tim Paine's chat behind the stumps was largely restricted to encouragement and cheeky attempts to distract his opposition. In a loud conversation with Aaron Finch who was at short leg, with India's Rohit Sharma in the middle of the pair at the crease, Paine vowed to start supporting Sharma's Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai if the recalled batsman hit a six. "It's always been a toss up for me between the [Rajasthan] Royals and the [Mumbai] Indians, who I [should] support. If Rohit hits a six here, I'm changing to Mumbai," Paine said. "Too many Poms at the Royals." Sharma smiled a few times in reaction to Paine's banter. Paine also made a quip to the umpires as Cheteshwar Pujara dawdled at the end of the morning session. "He's going to pay half my fine," Paine laughed as Pujara performed some gardening to ensure there wouldn't be another over before lunch. https://wwos.nine.com.au/cricket/no-barbs-paine-and-kohli-a-battle-of-wits/ef0f4dfe-7bb0-484d-afb5-4307991d9863
