Royal College Mexican Night

They have done it again!

The Royal College Old Boys Association( RCOBA) of NSW and ACT have established a reputation for providing memorable family nights with good food, great music and superb atmosphere all at a reasonable price. This year was no exception.

The RCOBA brought to Sydney a fabulous touch of Mexico and the audience played their part. The ladies were at their alluring best, with colourful dresses and scarves, the men looked dashing with multi-coloured ponchos and large brimmed sombreros and trade mark black moustaches. The Elsy Brammesan inspired décor superbly highlighted the theme. Fiesta posters, tables bathed in soft candle light shining from long stem glass jars with large chillies hanging off them surrounded by miniature cactus plants all placed on table arrangements of typical Mexican colour of green, yellow and red.

Yes it was good,and one could easily be mistaken that it was a night out in Mexico City or Tijuana.

President Daya Thayananthan welcomed the guests, introduced his committee and led the rendition of the college song. The sound of "School of our fathers" and the chorus line "disce aut discede" raised the rafters of the Dunmore Community Centre once more.

Rohan Gamage and his team once again dished out food that complemented the theme from nachos to chilli chicken, roast lamb and beyond. The RCOBA event sub-committee consisting of

Aswin de Silva, Charitha Wasala and Dinesh de Silva then produced the moment of the evening with the introduction of the Mexican dancers. The two beautiful women in their glorious multi-layered skirts and the dashing bloke in his Zorro costume stepped, tapped and sashayed their way through a number of dance routines. Photographer Thanuja Wijesekera (the brains behind the lens) with her eye for detail and sense of occasion captured people, colour and movement brilliantly with the versatility of her photography.

The MC for the night, the evergreen Duke Ramachandran (now a honorary Royalist) was at his charismatic best and introduced DJ Neil to help the audience rock into the night. The music was fantastic and maybe something about the ancient Aztec gods of Central America inspired DJ Neil. Many in the audience thought this was NJ's finest show in recent years.

All in all a fabulous evening in right Royal tradition of providing nothing but the best for the Old Boys, families and friends.

"VIVA ROYAL", well Done Guys

Award winning film to be screened in Sydney
Award winning film to be screened in Sydney
   

Posted by Indira Gonsalkorale 

The Sri Lanka Reconciliation Forum – Sydney* is pleased to have arranged the screening of acclaimed film maker Prasanna Vithanage's 'Oba Nathuwa Oba Ekka' – 'Piragu' –' With you without you' on Sunday 31 August 12:45pm to 3pm.

The film reflects the language diversity of Sri Lanka being a Sinhala/Tamil bilingual film with English subtitles.

Sri Lankan film maker, Prasanna Vithanage (b.1962 -) won Best Feature Film at the 2013 Asia Pacific Film Award on the Gold coast for Oba Nathuwa Oba Ekka (With You, Without You) Piragu. It is being released simultaneously across cities in India.

This is his 7th (2012) and most recent film, had its world premier in the "World Greats" section at the 39th Montreal International Film Festival.

Prasanna, on the adaptation of the Russian novella for this film says,

"Why did I make With You, Without You?

When I was reading Fyodor Dostoyevsky's novella The Meek One over and over again, two things plunged into my mind. One is its probe into masculinity and the second is questioning how consumerist values deprive people of human connection. When adapting this novella for film, I based it upon the biggest issue facing our country, which is the ethnic conflict. We live in a society which still has unhealed wounds from a war that lasted over 30 years, killing over tens of thousands of people. Confrontation between a man from the majority Sinhalese and a woman from the Tamil minority became the dramatic premise of my script. Their struggle with their own past for me was a metaphor for the struggles of the nation as a whole."

Don't miss this opportunity to see a film that has excited much discussion in Film and Art circles.

See attached Flyer for further information. Please forward to others who may be interested.

Reading Rhodes Cinemas has ample parking.

Spread knowledge not stigma!
Paws of our pet dogs and positive thinking will help the Hills Shire residents create a healthy and happy shire on the 31st August 2014. After three fantastic annual events since 2011, Mind Connections Specialist Mental Health Services present 'Pawsitive Steps towards Mental Health' in partnership with the Hills Shire Council. The event is a giant leap in reducing the stigma associated with mental illnesses.

This year, the event will be on August 31st from 9am – 10am at Castle Hill Showground. The organisers are happy to open opportunities to all mental health service providers in the Shire and surrounds to showcase their services. Our mission of combining all mental health service providers to be available to the community for promotion of wellbeing, healthy lifestyle, harmony and happiness in addition to prevention of mental illness are much appreciated by the local community.

Last year, politicians, Olympic swimmer Petria Thomas and leaders of community groups walked side by side to solidarity and that they were proud to be part of a great cause.

This year, the location is ideal, at the Castle Hill Dog Arena and Pavilion. The event has been revamped to make everyone, canines and humans alike, feel special. We look forward to a day that allows us to continue our great relationships with sponsors, designers, press, and the community.

With 10 weeks to go, organisers have kicked into top gear and we are committed to making this event as memorable as can be. Anyone interested in getting involved as a sponsor, community member, mental health service provider, NGO, member of the press, or volunteering should contact Dr Padmini Howpage via e-mail info@mentalhealthspecilaists.com.au

For more information, please visit www.mentalhealthspecialists.com.au and click on the 'Pawsitive Steps' link or visit the Hills Shire Council website at http://www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/Paws-in-the-Park.html We look forward to seeing you at Castle Hill Showground on August 31st 2014 at 9am.

Deep Vein Thrombosis And Air Travel

Inner lining of all veins including the major deep veins have  smooth surface, and a valvular mechanism to help  venous (blue) blood that returns to the lungs for re-oxygenation to travel unhampered. With ageing plaques are formed in arteries, which obstructs the flow of oxygenated blood as in coronary artery disease. Such plaques never occur in veins under normal situation.
Formation of clots in normal deep veins is called ‘Phlebo-thrombosis’ as opposed to clot formation in inflamed veins, called ‘Thrombo-plebitis’.
Here being discussed on Phlebo-thrombosis or commonly called ‘Deep Vein Thrombosis’ (DVT).
