    This week in the news : Australians scrap over toilet rolls amid coronavirus panic buying.
    Melbourne, Australia With 74 confirmed cases and three deaths, Australia is far from making the top of the countries worst-affected by the new coronavirus. But thousands of shoppers seem to think otherwise, and it appears their worst fear is finding themselves stuck in the toilet without a square to spare.


    Panic-buying increased across Australia this week amid fears that the outbreak will accelerate, leaving families trapped inside their homes with limited supplies.
    On Saturday, inside a Melbourne Woolworths supermarket, canned goods and other food items remained in stock while toilet paper shelves were completely bare, despite the store rationing the number each shopper could buy.
    "People are so ridiculous!! It's no worse than flu season yet they're acting like it's the zombie apocalypse," said shopper Karen Ficheroux.
    Beginning in February, the Australian Department of Health has steadily increased restrictions on travellers returning from mainland China, Iran and South Korea - the countries worst hit by COVID-19 - with returnees required to "self isolate" for 14 days and seek medical attention if any symptoms appear.
    The same applies to anyone who has been in close contact with an infected person, the department advises on its website.

    'It's crazy'
    In Sydney's northern suburbs, where cases have been confirmed at a school, a hospital, a care home and a child care centre within a four-kilometre radius, 117 people have been placed in isolation while hundreds of others have been advised to stay at home, avoiding all contact with the outside world.
    The new restrictions have fuelled a rush on "essential" supplies.
    Back in the Woolworths store, as two employees emerged with a full pallet of toilet rolls, shoppers rushed to grab their pack.
    A shop assistant guarding the new stock said, "We've had to limit one pack per family. It's crazy."
    [​IMG]
    Shoppers in this supermarket found the toilet roll aisle all but empty.

    Walking proudly with a multi-pack under her arm, one shopper could be overheard on the phone bragging excitedly, "I managed to get toilet paper!"
    Other products, such as sugar, rice, nappies and cat litter, while not sold out, were running low.
    "We're talking about a virus which is a biological contagion, but what's happening [as a result] is social contagion where you sort of catch what other people are doing," said Jill Klein, Professor of Marketing at Melbourne Business School.
    The bulky size of toilet roll packs compared with smaller items like canned goods - coupled with the sensitive nature of being caught without - has fuelled the rush on toilet paper above other more essential items.
    "When you're in the grocery store, and you see people with carts full of toilet paper, you think 'I better get some toilet paper'," Klein said.
    "And when the shelves are empty, people think 'Oh my gosh, there's no more toilet paper in Australia'."
    Social media frenzy
    Social media is now packed with images of empty shelves, shoppers squabbling over packets and memes of Australians wrapped up in toilet paper like mummies or barricading themselves behind a wall of toilet rolls.
    The hashtags #toiletpapergate and #toiletpapercrisis have been trending this week, while regional newspaper NT News even printed Thursday's edition with toilet paper sheets as a pull-out center spread.



    [​IMG]This week in Music : Despite drama, Megan Thee Stallion happy to release music

    NEW YORK - Megan Thee Stallion says she works extremely hard in the studio writing music, and so became more than a little worried when she almost couldn't release her new album because of a dispute with her record label.

    "I was super nervous," she said in an interview with The Associated Press this week after a Houston judge ordered the Friday release of her album as her bitter court battle with her label continues.
    "I'm super passionate about music. I love the fact that music is what connects me to my hotties, so not being able to put out music, that would hurt my relationship with my listeners," she continued. "I'm like, 'Oh thank you Lord' when I found out I could drop new music."

    The 25-year-old released the nine-track album, "Suga," on Friday. It comes after the release of the projects "Fever" and "Tina Snow" that helped establish Stallion's name in hip-hop, and even on the pop charts. Last year she made the 2019 TIME 100 Next List, was named one of the AP's Breakthrough Entertainers of the Year, won prizes at the MTV Video Music Awards and BET Hip-Hop Awards, and was honored by Variety and Billboard magazines.
    But not everything has been going smoothly.

    The performer posted on social media that she and her management team at Jay-Z's Roc Nation company tried to renegotiate a bad contract she signed years ago with Houston-based record label 1501 Certified Entertainment. It's become a battle marked by rancorous social media exchanges that Stallion and her associates regarded as threatening and intimidating.

    Stallion accused the label of not sharing data on her music sales with her management. She said that when they sought to renegotiate terms of her record contract as a result, the threats and attempts at intimidation increased.
    Representatives for 1501 didn't immediately reply to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment.
    Stallion got a small win in court Monday when State District Judge Robert Schaffer issued the initial temporary restraining order that barred 1501 from withholding release of her music on schedule. State District Judge Beau Miller reaffirmed the order Wednesday while denying 1501's appeal, and a March 13 hearing has been scheduled for her request for a temporary injunction against the label.

    Stallion said she's happy she decided to sign with Roc Nation to help manage her growing career.
    "Roc Nation is awesome. Even before I had officially signed with them, they started helping me with stuff," Stallion said, noting that they helped her enrol into school swiftly. "They took some of the load off of what I had going on in my everyday life. I was like, `Yeah, this is the place I want to be."'
    Stallion's hits include "Hot Girl Summer," "Big Ole Freak" and "Cash (Expletive)." She said her advice to up-and-coming artists is to read the contracts you sign carefully.
    "You read them. Have your people read them. Have your lawyer read them. Have everybody that know what they are talking about read them," she said.

    Congratulations to those who made it through
    next tine we will try to keep it a bit shorter.

    Are the news articles copy and pasted? Who wrote them? Did anyone proofread this before post? I’d be happy to assist and contribute if the newspaper postings are active again. @Groot

    • Being a staff member yourself, what do you think about the current staff team?
    • Danny / Jambita or Fearless?
    • If you were to become a manager for a day, what changes would you make?
    • Did you 'panic buy' toilet rolls off the supermarket?
