One primary principal said lax mums and dads needed to be parents rather than let their children rule the bedtime roost. Late-night television sessions and midweek outings mean some kids dont get to sleep until midnight. A Melbourne principal, Ashley Ryan, said students were turning up too tired to concentrate, disorganised, irritable and unable to deal with social situations. Asylum hope ends in grief SYDNEY: They had likely been at sea for weeks in their fishing boat called Jayawe and were close to what they must have hoped was a new life in Australia. Instead, about 30 asylum seekers on board the Sri Lankan vessel are likely the latest victims in the influx of boats off Australias northwest. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority ended a search for the vessel on Wednesday night, a week after a maritime patrol plane had spotted the boat almost 500km from Cocos Island. Cancer test to cut out chemo MELBOURNE: Researchers are developing a test that could spare thousands of cancer victims needless chemotherapy. It would reveal the chance of bowel cancer coming back after surgery. Walter and Eliza Hall researcher Dr Jeanne Tie said that even after surgery the cancer could return. The problem is we dont know which patient we should be giving the chemotherapy to improve the chance of a cure because we dont have a reliable test to show who still has cancer cells, Dr Tie said. Fresh army scandal over explicit images CANBERRA: Australian army officers have been suspended amid a Defence investigation into the distribution and creation of explicit and profane material that demeans women. The army is facing a major internal crisis following the discovery of the highly inappropriate material sent across Defence computer sys tems and the public internet over the past three years. Chief of Army LieutenantGeneral David Morrison said he was appalled at this situation, which came to light on April 10. I view the allegations that are being made in the gravest light, he said yesterday. So far, three army personnel have been suspended from duty pending the outcome of Defence investigations, and could be investigated by NSW police. Another 14 army officers and non-commissioned officers appear to have engaged in actions that strike at the heart of the armys ethos and its contract with the nation. The highest ranking officer is a lieutenant-colonel. The others are either majors, captains, warrant officers, sergeants or corporals. A further 90 or so other Australian Defence Force (ADF) personnel may have been on the periphery of these exchanges, Lieutenant General Morrison said. Its explicit and demeaning and profane, he said. Its understood the mater ial includes imagery falling into three categories some images of women are accompanied by offensive commentary, some have been digitally altered to be explicit and some show naked women. More than five women are involved in the case and include ADF members, public servants and members of the broader public. Chloe McCardel prepares to jump into the water as the media surrounds her at Hemingway Marina, Florida, yesterday. The Australian endurance swimmer ended her attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida after 11 hours in the water when she was stung by a jellyfish. It was the fifth failure involving three women swimmers who have tried to make the marathon swim since 2011. Jellyfish stings and strong currents have been the main impediments. Bob Olin, skipper of the primary support boat, the Sunluver, said McCardel had suffered multiple stings. She got nailed all over her body back, legs and arms. Nailed multiple times, all at the same time, he said Picture: AP PHOTO
