Air Commodore Kenneth Watson stood down from the Commander Northern Command position as Commodore Brenton Smyth took over the reins. The event included the signing of the handover and takeover certificate, a flag ceremony and an AP-3C Orion fly by. Commodore Watson served 30 years in the Royal Australian Air Force, mostly as a maritime navigator onboard an AP-3C Orion patrol aircraft. He has been posted to the US Central Command in Florida. Darwin to be wiped off the map By MARIA BILLIAS DARWIN is one of five Australian cities that will be completely obliterated by rising sea levels due to the effect of global warming. National Geographic has released interactive maps showing the catastrophic effects of the Earths ice melting over several thousands of years. Darwin, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth would be hit by the rising sea levels if this ice melts. The maps show sea levels could rise by 70 metres, and show South Australias Lake Eyre would turn into an inland sea, with parts of the Murray River and surrounds wiped out. Entire countries would be wiped out, and National Geographic predicts these changes to happen over thousands of years unless steps are taken to stop rising temperatures from climate change. National Geographic states there are more than 5 million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5000 years to melt it all. It goes on to say, If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, well very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26C) instead of the current 58. Since 1900 the global sea level has risen by 20cm. Man charged following fight A 22-YEAR-OLD man has been charged after allegedly causing another man serious head injuries in Palmerston on Sunday. Detective Sergeant Karl Day of the Serious Crime Squad said a fight broke out in Hayes Court, Durack at around 2.30am. He said a 47-year-old man suffered head injuries and was taken to Royal Darwin Hospital. The younger man was charged with unlawfully causing serious harm and was bailed to appear later in Darwin Magistrates Court. Law think-tank takes aim at gangs and guns By ZACH HOPE TOUGHER firearm laws, a federal anti-gang squad and a one-stop shop for gang intelligence were among items discussed at a two-day meeting of Australian and New Zealand police ministers and commissioners at Alice Springs. The Standing Council on Police and Emergency Management, a bi-annual meeting to flesh out federal lawand-order priorities with the states and territories, wrapped up yesterday. The Coalition is proposing new firearm laws which would lock up gun traffickers for a minimum of five years and increase maximum penalties for illegal firearm possession. It also plans a bikiefocused Australian AntiGangs Intelligence Coordination Centre to be operational by years end. The centre would work within the Australian Crime Commission and liaise with the National Anti-Gang Squad, launched last month. Also discussed were disaster management issues, the emergence of synthetic drugs, and the formation of a Standing Council on Law, Crime and Community Safety, which would tackle issues related to border protection, organised crime, cybercrime and workingwith-children laws.
