Australian shares plunge again as businesses shut and US Congress bickers over coronavirus stimulus


Australia

Australian shares have lost nearly $100 billion in a day of volatile trade after the country shut down parts of its economy and more states shut their borders.

Key points:

  • The ASX 200 lost further value, putting it back to where it was in late November 2012
  • The Australian dollar is trading at a near 17-year low
  • Global rating agency Standard & Poor’s predicts Australia’s economy will expand by just 0.4 per cent in 2020

Investors were also unnerved by the failure of the US Congress to pass the latest coronavirus stimulus bill, which saw US stock futures plunge 5 per cent at the open, the biggest permissible fall.

The ASX 200 index came off earlier lows to be down by 5.6 per cent or 271 points to 4,546 at the close, with most sectors in the red led by banks and consumer stocks.

The benchmark index is back to where it was in late November 2012.

The All Ordinaries index slumped 6 per cent to 4,564.

The Australian dollar is trading at a near 17-year low against the greenback of around 57.63 US cents.

Another fall in oil prices saw the ASX 200 energy index lose as much as 9 per cent during the session, to the lowest since early 2004, as more companies cut their spending and delayed projects.

It comes amid a slump in demand for fuel due to coronavirus, and as governments globally closed borders and shutdown their economies.

The Nikkei 225 index in Japan has gained 2 per cent after the Bank of Japan said it would inject an extra 800 billion yen ($12.7 billion) into the financial system of the world’s third-largest economy.

In China, the Shanghai Composite and the Hang Seng index in Hong Kong were both in the red in afternoon trade.

Swimwear company Tigerlily goes into administration

Fashion and swimwear brand Tigerlily became the latest retailer to go into voluntary administration.

Administrator KordaMentha said the decision to go into administration was made after considering the impact of the coronavirus.

Tigerlily employs 200 people and some shops will stay open as the administrators look for a buyer.

The firm was founded by former model and businesswoman Jodhi Meares, a former wife of billionaire James Packer.

The first meeting of creditors will be on April 1.

Reserve Bank plans further bond purchases

The Reserve Bank said it planned to buy another $4 billion in government bonds.

That follows a $5 billion purchase of bonds on Friday in its biggest intervention in Australia’s financial system in history.

The banking regulator, the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority, will soon announce plans to reduce the regulatory burden faced by financial institutions in the wake of the coronavirus.

The news comes a little over a year since the final report of the banking royal commission was released, which clamped down on bad behaviour by financial institutions.

What the second stimulus package will mean for you
A suite of new measures have been unveiled to soften the economic blow dealt by coronavirus. But what do they mean for your wallet?

APRA said lenders needed to put aside more money to cover losses caused by allowing customers to defer loan repayments.

The Council for Financial Regulators said it had discussed the need for continued “close engagement” and contingency plans with international regulators.

CMC Markets chief markets strategist for Asia Pacific, Michael McCarthy, said investors were increasingly pessimistic about the economic outlook and were expecting a recession globally and in Australia, especially as the US Senate failed to advance a coronavirus stimulus bill.

“The lack of political will in a crisis is really disappointing investors,” he said.

However, negotiations are ongoing, and US President Donald Trump said Congress was close to reaching an agreement.

On the local market, banks and industrial stocks led the falls.

The big banks plunged to multi-year lows, with National Australia Bank back at levels not seen since 1996 at one point this morning.

In New Zealand, the benchmark NZ50 index lost 7.6 per cent to 8,498 after the country’s government announced a shutdown to try and stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Global credit-ratings agency Standard & Poor’s (S&P) estimated total and permanent losses in Asia because of the coronavirus stood at $US620 billion ($1.08 trillion) for governments, companies, banks and households.

Last week it said the global economy was already in recession.

S&P predicted Australia’s economy would expand by just 0.4 per cent in 2020 after growth of 2.2 per cent last year seasonally adjusted according to the Bureau of Statistics.

It said China’s growth rate could halve this year to 2.9 per cent.

The agency forecasted the Hong Kong, Singaporean, South Korean and Japanese economies would go backwards in 2020.

Coronavirus death toll in China’s Hubei province tops 500


China

China’s health officials have confirmed the death toll from the coronavirus outbreak in Hubei province has reached 549, with 19,665 cases of infection.

Key points:

  • Wuhan has been the location of nearly 60 per cent of all new cases in the Hubei province
  • The virus has disrupted air travel, with more than two dozen airlines suspending flights to China
  • The virus was first identified in Wuhan and is believed to have originated at a seafood market in the city

The province, which has been the epicentre of the outbreak, reported 70 new deaths and 2,987 new confirmed cases, the local health commission said.

Two other deaths from the virus have been recorded outside mainland China — in the Philippines and Hong Kong.

Hubei has been in near-total lockdown for almost two weeks, with its train stations and airports shut and its roads sealed off.

The coronavirus was first identified in Hubei’s provincial capital of Wuhan and is believed to have originated at a seafood market in the city.

What you need to know
Here’s a rundown of all the facts about coronavirus, and how you can make sure you’re protected.

The daily death toll on Wednesday (local time) was higher than the 65 reported on the previous day, though the number of new cases fell slightly.

The province’s healthcare infrastructure has come under heavy pressure as a result of the epidemic.

The commission said as many as 14,314 people were still undergoing treatment, with 2,328 still in a serious condition.

Medical equipment shortage

Wuhan has continued to bear the brunt of the virus, and has been the location of nearly 60 per cent of all the province’s new cases.

The death rate so far has also been significantly higher in Wuhan than in the rest of the country, suggesting that the total number of cases might have been under-reported, with the city trying to diagnose thousands of patients despite a shortage of medical equipment and hospital beds.

Australian children trapped in Wuhan by coronavirus
There are at least 140 Australian children currently in Wuhan, the Chinese mega-city under strict lockdown. Their parents seek help to escape this nightmare.

The virus has disrupted air travel, with more than two dozen airlines suspending or restricting flights to China and several countries, including Australia and the United States, banning the entry of any non-permanent residents who have been in China recently.

Hong Kong said all visitors from mainland China would be quarantined for two weeks, while Taiwan banned the entry of mainland residents from Thursday.

However, the World Health Organisation has advised against trade and travel restrictions.

Global airlines, including in Australia, have suspended or scaled back direct flights to China’s major cities.

Last week, Qantas announced it would suspend flights to mainland China from February 9 until March 29.

A further 10 people on board a cruise ship that has been quarantined at Yokohama in Japan have tested positive to coronavirus.

Almost 4,000 passengers are in lockdown on the Diamond Princess, which is being reloaded with food, medicine and masks.

Ten people — including two Australians — on board the ship tested positive for the virus and were taken off yesterday.

A further 10 passengers tested positive today, including four people from Japan, one from Taiwan, two Americans, two Canadians and one from New Zealand.

Jeremy Fernandez will host a 30-minute special on coronavirus on Friday, February 7 from 7.30pm AEDT on the ABC News Channel, featuring a guest panel, explainers on how the virus unfolded and myth-busting the misinformation. The special will be repeated on ABC TV at 10:00pm.

Frustration over face masks as coronavirus cases in China climb to 440, nine dead as virus adapts and mutates


China

China’s National Health Commission says 440 people in 13 Chinese provinces are now infected with the new coronavirus, with nine people dying — and there is evidence of respiratory transmission from patient to patient.

Key points:

  • Chinese authorities say the outbreak can spread through human contact
  • The coronavirus strain is believed to have started in a Chinese seafood market
  • Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific flight attendants are asking to wear masks on flights

The number of confirmed cases as of Tuesday (local time) marks a rise from the more than 300 previously reported.

What is a coronavirus?
Here’s what we know about the novel coronavirus, or 2019-nCoV, and how worried you should be.

Chinese officials said the new virus was also adapting and mutating, underscoring the challenges for health authorities in controlling the outbreak.

An official from the country’s Centre for Disease Control and Prevention said the coronavirus originated from a market dealing in illegal wildlife transactions.

The virus, which started in the city of Wuhan at the end of last year, has spread to Beijing and Shanghai, as well as overseas to the United States, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

The Chinese special administrative region of Macau also confirmed its first case of pneumonia linked to the outbreak, state-owned news agency Xinhua said.

China is taking more strict measures in hospitals to protect healthcare workers from the outbreak, and will increase training for healthcare workers nationwide, officials from the health commission said.

Authorities added that infection of medical staff in the outbreak showed there were loopholes in treatment methods as authorities were still learning about the new virus.

Chinese residents vented their frustrations on social media over the limited availability of face masks being available to purchase in many cities such as Chengdu, as well as online.

Hong Kong confirms first case

Hong Kong confirmed its first case of the new coronavirus strain on Wednesday, local broadcasters RTHK, Cable TV and TVB said.

The infected patient arrived in Hong Kong via high-speed railway from the mainland, and has been quarantined at the Queen Elizabeth hospital, the reports said.

The Hospital Authority enhanced laboratory surveillance for pneumonia cases to include patients with travel history to all of mainland China.

Hong Kong had deployed temperature-screening machinery at the airport and the high-speed rail station.

Coronavirus spreads to the US and Thailand

Earlier today, a United States man from Washington state who recently travelled to China was diagnosed with the coronavirus, becoming the first confirmed US case of the newly identified illness.

The patient, identified only as a man in his 30s who recently returned from his hometown in China, fell ill over the weekend and was diagnosed with the coronavirus on Monday (local time), Washington Governor Jay Inslee told reporters at a press conference in the United States city of Seattle.

He was in a satisfactory condition at Providence Regional Medical Centre in Washington and was not known to have infected anyone else, Mr Inslee said.

“This is not a moment of high anxiety,” Mr Inslee said

“This is a low risk. It appears to have a transmission vector that really should not prevent anyone from going anywhere in Snohomish County [in Washington], except maybe the isolation ward at the hospital.”

Last week, the World Health Organisation said there was limited human-to-human transmission, and the global community would be prepared if an outbreak occurred, however authorities now say the virus can spread through human contact.


Video: Death toll from Wuhan coronavirus rises to nine

(ABC News)

The coronavirus, which causes respiratory symptoms similar to a cold or flu, has been linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, the largest city in central China with a population of about 11 million. That market has since been shut down.

The disease has spread to other parts of China, including the capital Beijing where there have been five cases. People have also been diagnosed in Thailand, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan.

The US Centres for Disease Control (CDC) and Washington State said the agency was preparing for more US cases of the coronavirus to emerge, and the CDC raised its travel alert for Wuhan to a level 2, calling for enhanced precautions.

Under that alert level, the CDC recommends people travelling to Wuhan to avoid contact with sick people, animals and animal markets.

The agency said it had developed a new test that allowed it to identify the presence of the virus in a traveller.

A CDC medical officer said all travellers from Wuhan would be redirected to five US airports in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Atlanta and San Francisco for screening.

Airline crews fear being infected

The flight attendants union at Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airways said it has asked the airline to let crew wear face masks on all flights to mitigate the risk of staff catching the new coronavirus.

The coronavirus struck as millions of Chinese prepared to travel for the Lunar New Year, heightening contagion risks and posing a fresh threat to the airline, which has been battered by months of sometimes violent anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

The Cathay Pacific Airways Flight Attendants Union said it had received a “tremendous” amount of emails and messages from members concerned about catching the virus given they were exposed to more than 300 passengers from numerous places on a single flight.

“All of them are worried about the risk they are taking every time they go to work,” the union said on its Facebook page on Tuesday (local time).

“It is time for the company to properly address their concerns and allow cabin crew to wear masks on all flights.”

The new coronavirus strain has been linked to a seafood market in Wuhan, the largest city in central China.

So far, it said, the airline was not allowing cabin crew to wear masks except on flights to and from Wuhan.

Cathay did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

Cathay told the South China Morning Post, which first reported on the issue, that as required by Hong Kong health authorities, it was distributing health declaration forms and making face masks and antiseptic wipes available at the boarding gate to passengers travelling from Wuhan to Hong Kong.

Wuhan virus ‘super-spreaders’
One of China’s top health experts warns potential “super-spreaders” could worsen the impact of the new coronavirus strain, which can now be passed between humans.

Financial Services analysts from Jefferies said shares in Cathay and mainland Chinese carriers could remain under pressure for some time if the coronavirus situation became similar to the 2003 SARS outbreak and cases continued to increase. That coronavirus outbreak killed nearly 800 people.

Britain’s Heathrow Airport would introduce separate areas for passengers travelling from regions that had been affected by the new flu-like coronavirus in China, Transport Minister Grant Shapps said on Wednesday.

“That is something which we are keeping a very close eye on,” Mr Shapps told Sky News.

“There’s been some announcements this morning about flights that come direct from the infected region to Heathrow with some additional measures there. This is to ensure that when flights come in directly to Heathrow there is a separate area for people to arrive in.”

Thailand finds second case of new Chinese virus, authorities confident spread can be contained


Thailand

Thailand has found a second case of a new Chinese coronavirus, authorities said on Friday as they ramped up checks on Chinese visitors, nearly a million of whom are expected for Lunar New Year holidays next week.

Key points:

  • Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that can cause infections, from the common cold to SARS
  • Thailand’s Health Minister said, “We’re fully alert”.
  • Japan has also reported one case of the infection

The latest patient is from China’s central city of Wuhan, which has reported 41 cases of pneumonia potentially linked to the new type of virus, with two deaths, as hospitals worldwide scramble to guard against any spread.

The 74-year-old woman, quarantined since arriving in Thailand on Monday, was found to be infected, health officials said.

“We’re very confident that we can control the spread of this kind of disease,” Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul told reporters, adding that the situation was under control and there was no outbreak in Thailand. “We’re fully alert.”

The two Chinese patients were now safe but needed to go through a few more procedures before Thai authorities could let them return home, he added.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that can cause infections ranging from the common cold to severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

Thailand, which is on high alert ahead of the Lunar New Year holidays, said on Monday it had found a 61-year-old Chinese woman carrying a strain of the coronavirus, the first time it was detected outside China.

Japan reported its first case of the infection on Thursday after a Japanese man returned from visiting Wuhan, known for its picturesque lakes.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has said the virus could spread and warned hospitals about it.

Thai health officials have stepped up monitoring at four airports receiving daily flights from Wuhan — Suvarnabhumi, Don Muang, Chiang Mai and Phuket — and others that receive charter flights from the Chinese city.

Since January 3, Thailand has screened 13,624 passengers.

Health officials also asked Thai AirAsia and China Southern Airlines, which run direct daily flights from Wuhan, to halt boarding by those suffering from high fever and respiratory symptoms and reschedule their flights.

Injured sea turtle learning to swim again after vets create prosthetic flipper


Thailand

A Thai turtle which lost its flipper after getting tangled in a fishing net is swimming with ease again after receiving a prosthetic limb.

Key points:

  • Goody, an endangered olive ridley sea turtle, lost a left flipper years ago
  • Vet scientists at Chulalongkorn University have developed prosthetic limbs for injured sea turtles
  • After being fitted with a prosthetic swimmer, Goody is learning to swim again

Goody, an endangered olive ridley sea turtle, has been making do with only three flippers since an encounter with fishing gear years ago left it immobile and stressed in captivity.

Over the past year, Thai environment authorities and researchers at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok have been working to develop prostheses for injured sea turtles, following similar projects in Japan and the United States.

Nantarika Chansue, a veterinarian who took part in the development of Goody’s prosthetic flipper, said Goody was adapting well to her new left flipper.

“She’s swimming much better and she’s learning to use the two flippers to turn,” she said.

“You can see the difference.”

Previously, Goody was able to only swim with difficulty using one right flipper, while living in a confined space with other injured turtles.

Dr Chansue explained the prostheses would not enable injured turtles to become fit enough to return to the sea, but rather improve animals’ quality of life in captivity.

“We are trying to develop some of the best ones ever created in the world,” she said.

Another 10 Thai turtles with similar injuries could benefit from the project.

Sea turtles are often injured or killed by human activities, most commonly by ingesting plastic or getting caught in fishing nets or lines, which can stop blood circulating to their limbs.

Nissan vows to pursue charges against ex-chairman who fled to Lebanon


Lebanon

Nissan will still pursue legal action against former chairman Carlos Ghosn despite his “regrettable” escape from Japan to Lebanon.

Key points:

  • Carlos Ghosn absconded from Japan by boarding a private jet hidden inside a case for musical equipment
  • The former Nissan chief faces charges of financial misconduct in Japan
  • A warrant for his wife Carole’s arrest has been issued, with officials saying anyone caught helping a fugitive escape would face consequences

The Japanese automaker said in a statement that Mr Ghosn engaged in “serious misconduct” while leading the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance.

“The company will continue to take appropriate legal action to hold Ghosn accountable for the harm that his misconduct has caused to Nissan,” it said, without giving details.

Meanwhile, Tokyo prosecutors have also issued an arrest warrant for Mr Ghosn’s wife Carole on suspicion of perjury.

Details on the allegations against Ms Ghosn were not immediately available, but Japanese officials have said anyone caught helping a fugitive escape would face legal consequences.

Ms Ghosn was banned from meeting with her husband while he was out on bail because she was seen as someone who might help his escape.

Investigation into how escape happened

Japan’s chief government spokesman told reporters that the government had informed Lebanon that Mr Ghosn left the country illegally and it sought cooperation in finding out what happened.

Japanese news reports on Tuesday gave new details of the escape, saying he left his residence alone, met two men at a Tokyo hotel and then took a bullet train to Osaka before boarding a private jet hidden inside a case for musical equipment.

Prosecutors are investigating why the cargo was not inspected before it was loaded, the broadcaster NHK and financial newspaper Nikkei said, citing unnamed sources.

The jet used, made by Canada’s Bombardier, is designed to allow easy access between its passenger and cargo compartments.

The Nikkei report said dozens of people in various countries helped to plan his clandestine departure.

Japan and Lebanon do not have an extradition treaty.

Experts said it would be difficult to bring Mr Ghosn back to stand trial in Tokyo, while chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga said the situation had to be handled carefully.

The foreign ministry said the Japanese ambassador planned to meet with Lebanese President Michel Aoun later on Tuesday (local time).

Mr Ghosn faces charges of financial misconduct. He managed to skip bail and leave the country despite heavy surveillance while he was staying at a home in Tokyo.

Nissan’s statement was the first word from the company since Mr Ghosn’s flight last week.

Ghosn maintains his innocence

The automaker and Japanese prosecutors allege Mr Ghosn misstated his future compensation and diverted company assets for personal gain. He says he is innocent.

Mr Ghosn has not appeared in public since arriving in Lebanon. He is expected to give his side of the story in a news conference planned for Wednesday in Beirut.

Earlier, he said the allegations against him were concocted by Nissan, Japanese authorities and others who wanted to block efforts toward a fuller merger between Nissan and its French alliance partner Renault SA.

Mr Ghosn said in a statement last week that he wanted to escape “injustice”.

Critics of the Japanese judicial system said his case exemplified its tendency to move too slowly and keep suspects in detention for too long.

Nissan said in its statement that an investigation was ongoing in France, and the US Securities and Exchange Commission had found some wrongdoing.

Mr Ghosn has not been charged in France or the US.

The scandal over Mr Ghosn’s case has tarnished Nissan’s image and created a leadership vacuum at a time when the automaker’s profits and sales are tumbling.

Mr Ghosn’s successor Hiroto Saikawa also resigned last year amid financial misconduct allegations related to questionable income.

“Nissan will continue to do the right thing by cooperating with judicial and regulatory authorities wherever necessary,” the Yokohama-based company said.

Although Mr Ghosn is unlikely to face trial in Japan, Greg Kelly, another Nissan former executive, is still facing charges of under-reporting Mr Ghosn’s future compensation.

Mr Kelly, an American, who is out on bail and maintains he is innocent, has not been charged with the breach of trust allegations Mr Ghosn is also facing.

Nissan has also been charged as a corporate entity. The company says it will not fight the charges and will pay the required fines.

Government invests $20 million for four extra firefighting aircraft


SA

Three thousand Australian Defence Force reservists will be deployed to help with the bushfire recovery, Prime Minister Scott Morrison has announced.

Key points:

  • The Navy’s largest amphibious ship, HMAS Adelaide, will sail from Sydney this afternoon to the south coast
  • Defence Minister Linda Reynolds said the compulsory call-out of the 3,000 defence reservists is a first in the nation’s history
  • Mr Morrison also confirmed his scheduled visits to India and Japan later this month have been postponed

Mr Morrison said the Federal Government would also invest a further $20 million to lease four additional firefighting aircraft.

The Prime Minister also announced Chinook helicopters from Townsville and other military aircraft would assist, as well as the opening of defence force bases from Adelaide to Brisbane for emergency short-term accommodation.

The Navy’s largest amphibious ship, HMAS Adelaide, will sail from Sydney this afternoon to sit off the coast should it be required to help with evacuations.

“They will sail this afternoon, they will be located offshore from the fire-affected areas from tomorrow afternoon,” Mr Morrison said.

“The Adelaide is fully equipped for disaster relief and humanitarian aid, is able to operate helicopters, 400 crew including medical staff, as well as 300 tonnes [of emergency relief supplies] which have been loaded up in recent days.”

Follow our live blog for updates on bushfires and evacuations.

Mr Morrison said the deployment in South Australia would focus on Kangaroo Island, after two people died in a bushfire there.

It brings the nationwide bushfire death toll to 23 since September.

‘Political advertising’ released hours after announcement

Hours after the announcement, Mr Morrison’s office released a social media video outlining the arrangements.

The post, released on Twitter and Facebook, is set to upbeat music overlaid with video of the disaster relief efforts.

“We’re calling out up to 3,000 Defence Force Reservists to help in fire-affected areas,” it reads.

“We’ve also deployed three Australian Navy ships…that’s on top of the $26 million already committed this year.”

@toddsampsonOZ tweet: Advertising! There is something not right about running political advertising during a devastating National Crisis. It’s like being ‘sold to’ at a funeral. PR Crisis 101: say less and do more.(Btw, the bouncy elevator music is too juxtaposing and really annoying.) #bushfires

The video was slammed as “political advertising” on Twitter, with former ABC broadcaster Barrie Cassidy labelling it “absolutely obscene”.

“They are advertising their responses to the fires – promoting themselves – at the height of the crisis,” he said.

Elly Baxter commented: “Really? A party political ad about disaster relief. There is something seriously wrong with everyone involved with this.”

Matt Burke said he had “never seen a politician’s ad like this for natural disaster response with such an upbeat election feel”.

But the video received a warmer response from some on Facebook, with commenters on Mr Morrison’s Facebook page praising his leadership.

Reservist callout a ‘first’

Defence Minister Linda Reynolds said the compulsory call-out of the 3,000 defence reservists was a first in the nation’s history.

“The Government has not taken this decision lightly. In fact, it is the first time that reserves have been called out in this way in living memory and, in fact, I believe for the first time in our nation’s history,” she said.

Ms Reynolds said reservists who were already engaged in the current emergency response would be exempt from this call-out.

“That includes reservists who are already providing service in volunteer fire services, state fire and rescue [services], state and federal police, ambulance, and [those involved in the] emergency repair of power and communication,” she said.

“Any reservists who find themselves, their family or property under threat from fires, of course, will also be exempt from this call-out.

Ms Reynolds said the reservists would have four key responsibilities:

  • Provide isolated communities with life-saving supplies for immediate relief
  • Provide evacuation assistance to vulnerable people in isolated communities
  • Assist with assessment and reopening of vital roads
  • Assist fire services with preparation of fire breaks away from the fire fronts
  • Labor leader Anthony Albanese welcomed the Federal Government’s expanded emergency bushfire response and said he asked the Prime Minister to consider the extra measures months ago.

    “It’s a good thing that that investment is now happening,” he said.

    “It’s one of the things we put on the agenda for the November COAG meeting that we proposed in writing to the Prime Minister and it’s good he’s taking up Labor’s suggestion that we made at that time.”

    Mr Morrison said two waterbomber aircraft would arrive within seven days, with the other two available within two weeks.

    Can Morrison live down his George W Bush moment?
    Scott Morrison has had some perplexing failures of political and policy judgement in recent weeks, writes Laura Tingle.

    “What we need are waterbombers that meet the technical and specific requirements of the deployment in Australia,” he said.

    “It’s not a matter of just trying to hustle up some planes from somewhere around the world.

    “What you need is the precise asset to deal with the situation in Australia, NAFC [National Aerial Firefighting Centre] is an organisation we work through to source and locate the specific aircraft that we need and meet those payments.

    “Two of those will be available within seven days and the others will be available within 14 days is my advice. We received the request at 8:00pm last night and we have actioned it today.”

    Mr Morrison also confirmed his scheduled visits to India and Japan later this month had been postponed.

    He was due to visit India from January 13 to 16 and Japan immediately afterwards.

    Mr Morrison came under fire for taking a family vacation in Hawaii as the bushfire crisis unfolded in December.

    Bushfire evacuees from the Victorian town of Mallacoota in East Gippsland, on Saturday arrived in Hastings on Navy ships.

    About 4,000 people, including some 3,000 tourists, had been stranded in the town since they were forced to shelter on the foreshore as the fire approached on New Year’s Eve.

    On Friday, about 1,000 people were ferried to the naval vessels HMAS Choules and MV Sycamore.

    NAV – Price On My Head Lyrics


    Play this song

    [Verse 1: The Weeknd]
    Yeah, I pull up to my town with a price on my head
    I pull up to my town, I’m outside
    They wanna see me drown, it’s on sight’s what they said
    I heard these niggas want to take my life
    I don’t apologize, I would die for this shit
    I don’t apologize, I don’t hide
    I’m Kubrick with the shine, got the ice on my neck
    They wanna throw a bag on him

    [Chorus: The Weeknd]
    Price on my head, got a price on my head
    Night when I rest, with a knife by my bed
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead
    Price on my head, got a price on my head (Price on my head)
    Night when I rest, with a knife by my bed (Knife by my bed)
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead (When I’m dead)
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead

    [Verse 2: The Weeknd]
    I cut off all my side hoes, in du Cap with a dime though
    All these girls been ran through, on the low real snipe mode
    I can’t sleep, that’s insomnia, so much ice like I’m Tonya
    All my boys livin’ debt free, your squad like Wesley
    I want head on a jet ski, she gave me head for a Fendi
    For a Prada, she got sexy, for a Lambo or a Bentley
    My mansion is no joke, house party like 1 OAK
    Weed louder than gun smoke, get high off one toke
    You beefin’ with yourself, tell the truth
    Niggas on your side, they would ride for me too
    Still wasting they time, tryna come for me too
    I’m too busy, faded in Japan with the crew
    With the crew, with the crew, with the crew
    Shout out all the girls who’ve been riding for me too
    Niggas want me dead, I’ve been dead, nothing new
    Niggas want me dead, for a bag and a

    [Chorus: The Weeknd]
    Price on my head, got a price on my head (Price on my head)
    Night when I rest, with a knife by my bed (Knife by my bed)
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead

    [Verse 3: NAV]
    They tried to get me and they missed, if we send shots then they gon’ hit
    I could get your top taken off for less than a quarter brick (Yeah)
    One of my rings could get him off, we’ll check him off the list
    My shooter a codeine addict, he’ll do it for a pint of Actavis
    Since I met Cash, got a lot of racks, I still want more (Racks)
    I can tell by the way you carry yourself, you never sold no dope (Dope)
    Growin’ up, my mama beat my ass, then cleaned my mouth with soap (Soap)
    Now she showin’ up to work in a Balenciaga coat
    Price on my head, got your life ’round my neck
    Put a brown kid in the Southside, racks and me is what you’ll get
    My block was like the car wash, you drive in, you gon’ get wet
    Had take a lot of losses, made me comfortable with death (Death)
    Took too much Act’, had to pop a Xan to reset
    His bitch gave me some top, and now he wanna send me threats
    Live my best life, I know my opps just wanna see me dead
    Took his life, I paid him double what they put on my head

    [Chorus: The Weeknd]
    Price on my head, got a price on my head (Price on my head)
    Night when I rest, with a knife by my bed (Knife by my bed)
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead (When I’m dead)
    I’m so paranoid, I’ma sleep when I’m dead

    Poppy – Fashion After All Lyrics


    [Verse 1]
    I’m working every angle
    My lipstick is a staple
    My hair and makeup makes you envious and want to die
    I’m worthy to some money
    I’m saving every penny
    I’m in Japan and Africa and I don’t need a guy
    My wrists are terrorists
    My lips gave you a kiss
    My consciousness thinks this is making me feel fabulous

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Do what I want
    Say what I want
    Wear what I want
    Talk how I want
    Walk how I want
    Do what I want
    Wear what I want

    [Chorus]
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    Fashion after all

    [Verse 2]
    Give me a second to think
    Give me something cold to drink
    Give me a reason I should listen to another word
    I’m revolutionary
    A little bold and scary
    I’m making plans to save the world and I don’t need your help
    I’m on another level
    There’s nothing I can’t handle
    I’m watching you watch me the way the devil watches angels

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Do what I want
    Say what I want
    Wear what I want
    Talk how I want
    Walk how I want
    Do what I want
    Wear what I want

    [Chorus]
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    Fashion after all
    (It’s fashion after all
    Fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all
    It’s fashion after all)

    Kanye West Makes Surprise Appearance with Kid Cudi at All-Star Concert


    It was a G.O.O.D. Saturday for Kanye West and Kid Cudi fans, who were treated to a special performance from the duo at adidas’ 747 Warehouse St. event during NBA All-Star Weekend event in Los Angeles.

    Dressed casually in shorts, an adidas sweatshirt, and hat, Yeezy surprised the crowd when he showed up on stage to introduce Cudder. “I just came out here with my homie, my brother,” he said. “I need y’all to make some noise for Kid Cudi.”

    The Lonely Stoner brought Yeezus back to the stage for a rendition of “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1,” which they performed together.

    The joint performance fuels rumors of an upcoming Kanye-Cudi collaborative project, which they reportedly worked on in Japan last year. In November, the duo also performed “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1” in Chicago.

    Two years ago, the longtime friends feuded over a series of issues. Taking to Twitter, Cudder wrote: “Ye, Drake, whoever. These ni**as dont give a fuck about me. And they aint fuckin with me. Ni**as keep you close when they see how powerful you are by yourself. When they see your greatness. Out of fear.” Kanye replied: “Kid Cudi, don’t ever mention ‘Ye name. I birthed you…Respect the God!”

    However, both artists appeared to reconcile following individual health concerns. Cudi reportedly went to rehab, while West was treated for what’s been called a mental breakdown.

    In addition to Kanye and Cudi, adidas’ two-day 747 Warehouse St. event featured performances from N.E.R.D, Lil Uzi Vert, Childish Gambino, 21 Savage, Playboi Carti, French Montana, and more.

    YouTube Suspends Advertising on Logan Paul’s Channel


    We can probably all agree that Logan Paul is the worst. And thankfully, at least for the time being, he isn’t being paid for it.

    YouTube just yanked all the ads off his channel after another disturbing, borderline psychopathic video surfaced on his account. In Paul’s most recent upload, he is filmed while tasing a dead rat. Just save all your “the rat’s already dead” banter, because if you can’t admit the kid is messed up then you have a problem, too.

    The video streaming platform originally cut ties with Paul after he uploaded a deeply upsetting video from “Suicide Forest” in Japan and video taping someone that had apparently ended their own life. Now, he’s able to continue uploading videos but will not be making money off any ad revenue.

    Many have demanded Logan Paul’s account be permanently banned, and if he keeps up this “recent pattern of behavior” that might be a very real possibility.

    In response to Logan Paul’s recent pattern of behavior, we’ve temporarily suspended ads on his channels.

    Dancehall Icon Diana King Got Married To Longtime Girlfriend


    Legendary dancehall singer Diana King got married to her longtime girlfriend Mijanne Webster.

    King is one of the most iconic female dancehall artists of all-time after breaking onto the scene in the early 1990s before breaking into the mainstream with hits like “I Say A Little Prayer” and “Shy Guy.” In 2012, she went public for the first time that she is a lesbian and while she received some backlash from some of her Jamaican fan base, she overwhelmingly received a lot of support from the vast majority of her fans.

    Diana King and Mijanne has been dating since 2007 and only recently tied the knot. “As an artiste, who is LGBTQ, born and raised in Jamaica, I never thought I’d ever say ‘my wife’ in this lifetime,” the singer wrote on Instagram. “I am completely and sincerely grateful to all who fought and continue to fight worldwide for our deserved equality and human rights. My true personality is introverted and private, totally different from the me on stage. My hands are shaking as I write this post. For me, it is a sign that I am about to exercise courage because they shook like this when I came out in 2012. I am sharing this because I strongly believe visibility is vital for change and I’m gonna live it… authentically. I’s married now Celie! Love wins.”

    “We woke up on Saturday morning and she said to me… ‘Babe, did you think that when we met in 2007, one day we woulda married??? After a short pause, I replied Yes… yes I did…’ I didn’t tell anybody I was getting married,” Mijanne wrote.

    Diana King has been touring extensively in recent years despite not dropping any new music since 2011 when she released her last album, AgirLnaMeKING. Her debut album Tougher Than Love was released in 1995. The project peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae chart and 85 on the R&B chart. The album is also certified three times platinum in Japan and gold in the US.

    Souleye – Ease That lyrics


    Artist: Souleye Title: Ease That Hook Ease that lean back roll me up that
    Weed sack / Calling out my ladies on the front and the back / Lean back
    Ease that roll me up that weed sack / We we’ve them tracks that ride
    Like Cadillac’s / Verse 1 I’ve been all around the world / And easy
    To see that most people that I meet / Love blazing on them trees / I’ll
    Find it in Fiji where no weed be / Or in Mendo where it’s in every home /
    Grown out doors organic is my favorite type / But then again I like that
    Indoor bud at night / Smoking sativa in the middle of the afternoon / Get
    High motivate party on the move / Even my mom pack that bong / I’ve
    Watched my dad smoke all day long / From the rich and the famous / To the
    Poor and broke / They all love that dope / Government don’t know I know
    My fourth amendment / Can’t search without a warrant / Hook Ease that
    Lean back roll me up that weed sack / Calling out my ladies on the front
    And the back / Lean back ease that roll me up that weed sack / Wewe’ve
    Them tracks that ride like Cadillac’s / Verse 2 Only the best when I’m
    Smoking the Sess /
    Hawaiian mist I’m on a mystical trip / Puffing an ounce of Kush on the
    Couch / Purple urkle got me seeing double now / I’m going to Canada
    Man, Japan or Amsterdam / No matter where I’m at I’m going to smoke a
    Gram / Four-way endo sipping on that swiss miss / With Mr. Nice here’s
    The pipe now hit this / Elevate let’s create everyone together now /
    Let’s celebrate / take a break though / If you don’t puff the drow / I
    Know there’s those / That don’t smoke so pass it to the left / You
    Know how it goes / The rotation is ground breaking /


    Audioslave – Doesn’t Remind Me


    I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    With a graveyard tan carrying a cross
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like studying faces in a parking lot
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like driving backwards in the fog
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    The things that I’ve loved the things that I’ve lost
    The things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
    I won’t lie nor more than you can bet
    I don’t want to learn what I’ll need to forget
    I like gypsy moths and radio talk
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like gospel music and canned applause
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like colorful clothing in the sun
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like hammering nails and speaking in tongues
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    The things that I’ve loved the things that I’ve lost
    The things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
    I won’t lie nor more than you can bet
    I don’t want to learn what I’ll need to forget
    Bend and shape me
    I love the way you are
    Slow and sweetly
    Like never before
    Calm and sleeping
    We won’t stir up the past
    So discreetly
    We won’t look back
    The things that I’ve loved the things that I’ve lost
    The things I’ve held sacred that I’ve dropped
    I won’t lie nor more than you can bet
    I don’t want to learn what I’ll need to forget
    I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything
    I like playing in the sand what’s mine is ours
    Cause it doesn’t remind me of anything


    Jonwayne – Afraid Of Us (feat. Zeroh) (Rap Album Two Album)


    [Verse 1: Jonwayne]
    I was sitting in Japan when my nephew was born
    Broke my damn heart when I wasn’t there for him
    It made me think about my life
    And my order of operations
    I was drunk at a show and fucked my boy’s set up
    It was a blessing when he checked me at the check in
    I ain’t never been the same and I’ll never forget it
    I’ve been the burden of my people
    And alienating fans
    Just thinking they would never understand
    Really it’s wavelength bringing us together in a way
    So really I should be more open to two-way
    And if I ever did you something dirty, I do pray
    I get another chance but this karma catching up in a true way
    I’ve been so caught up in the lack of acceptance
    I never focused on the man to accept
    And if it’s too late for a formal apology, I accept it (x2)
    You think of me less than I am but maybe that’s a blessing
    I just hope that I can spread my message
    A to Z (passing off to zeroh)

    [Chorus: Zeroh]
    Shit, all I want to say is put it down!
    Your position been compromised
    Everything has a beginning and an end
    I know glory’ll take you dead or alive
    In ruts fucked up off such and such
    Is thus just because
    You’re afraid of us
    Ya
    So put it down
    Put it down
    (x2)

    [Verse 2: Jonwayne]
    All my life I was looking for love
    Found it in Florida under the too hot sun
    Took it for granted
    Started to run
    Became the man or a gun
    But now I’m looking down the barrel of one
    On my knees when we said she could see my skin was empty
    Please wake me when the self hatred is done
    And I try but she reminds me of what I’ve become
    Thought i knew myself but that knowing is done
    I just hope that she still sees my love
    And for that I just hope these old songs take off
    I need a house
    And a rack
    For every leaf of grass on my big-ass lawn
    And as I see my family progress all I want is a daughter or son
    Been around the world playing rapper is dumb
    Fulfilling fantasies of a teenage me
    And in the end it’s my people bringing joy to the room
    Some advice: don’t lose sight about where you’re from
    A to Z

    [Chorus]
    Shit, all I want to say is put it down!
    Your position been compromised
    Everything has a beginning and an end
    I know glory’ll take you dead or alive
    In ruts fucked up off such and such
    Is thus just because
    You’re afraid of us
    Ya
    So put it down
    Put it down
    (x2)

    [Outro: Jonwayne]
    Yo, look at these people
    Counting on me when I can’t even count on myself
    Look at these homies
    So sure of me when I’m not so sure of myself
    I need help
    But I’m too damn proud to stop the progress now
    I need to slow down
    But I need a good friend to come and tell me how
    (x6)

    [Chorus]
    Shit, all I want to say is put it down!
    Your position been compromised
    Everything has a beginning and an end
    I know glory’ll take you dead or alive
    In ruts fucked up off such and such
    Is thus just because
    You’re afraid of us
    Ya
    So put it down
    Put it down
    (x2)

    Drake – Days In The East


    [Verse 1]
    Why you keep askin’ me about her?
    She’s not here right now, she’s not here right now
    Why am I the one you wanna get into it with right now
    I’ve got a lot to say, and that’s the last thing a nigga wanna hear right now
    Spendin’ all my days on the Eastside, oh
    Forgettin’ who I was on the other side, oh
    Young nigga switchin’ up the program right now
    Tryna put the power in my own hands right now
    I’m about to ride through the old hood right now
    Got too much pride for my own good right now
    Waitin’ on you to give in and hit me up
    So I could fall through like old times and hit it up

    [Hook]
    I’m terrible at inviting myself, call me over
    Those nights when you need someone else call me over
    You can be the one to take control call me over
    When I get there, you already know, call me

    [Verse 2]
    Why you keep askin’ me about her?
    Couple other things I’d rather wanna do than talk ’bout that right now
    Told you about giving him chances and chances and chances
    He’s not holding you down, he’s holding you back right now
    Spendin’ all my days on the Eastside, oh
    Forgettin’ who I was on the other side, oh
    Young nigga switchin’ up the program right now
    Tryna put the power in my own hands right now
    Love it when your ass speak the truth to me
    Tryna wake up and have you with me
    Waitin’ on you to give in and hit me up
    So I could fall through like old times and hit it up

    [Hook]
    I’m terrible at inviting myself, call me over
    Those nights when you need someone else call me over
    You can be the one to take control call me over
    When I get there, you already know, call me

    [Breakdown]
    (I threw my hands in the air said show me something)
    Remember one night I went to Erykah Badu house, she made tea for me
    We talked about love and what life could really be for me
    She said, "when that shit is real, you just know"
    And I was thinking bout you, you already know
    Yeah, the other night Chubbs showed up at my house
    He had weed for me, that’s my nigga till we gon’
    Keeps his ear to the streets for me
    Said the city stress him out on the low
    I said, "I feel you, nigga, I already know"
    Yeah, already
    Girl’s talkin’ bout you, gotta leave already
    Damn, my lil’ nephew turned four already
    Gave you a little help, you need more already
    Damn, you need more already?
    Before you said your mine, I was yours already
    22, had the Bentley 4 door already
    Even as a boy I was the boy already
    So you know that mean the pussy galore already
    Mention other girls, you get insecure already
    That was in the past, I’ve matured already
    Fuck them hoes, you got the award already
    You go to Chanel and get rewards already
    Know I do this shit for 3rd Ward already
    Know I do this shit for H-Town already
    Already, already
    Back up in this thing, it’s a go
    Had a couple niggas out of pocket, now they know
    Ain’t the first time cause I’ve lost you before
    Had to get it back, had to get it back
    Had to pull it back because I know I’m on the road
    Had to take you back because I know you’re down to roll
    If you can get it from me, you can have it, now you know
    All your friends asking where you stand with the boy
    FaceTime said you got plans for the boy
    Studying your body, that’s exams for the boy
    Take a flight here, pop a xan for the boy
    Waking up in Amsterdam with the boy
    Long flight home, another xan for your boy
    You would probably fly out to Japan for the boy
    You would probably kill another man for the boy
    You would probably…
    You would probably lie ’bout it on the stand for your boy
    Put the Bible to your right hand for the boy
    That’s why you I ain’t never gotta worry ’bout the boy
    You know you got…
    You know you got that really good insurance on the boy
    You just gotta pack a bag and hurry to the boy


    Bearstronaut – Shadow lyrics


    I’m the one you want in the palm of your hand
    Running down your back at every word’s end
    You can let me down, put me in my place
    Although you’ve had enough, there’s still more I can take

    Maybe I’m just here to work
    And let you take the lead
    When you stare into the light
    You know where to find me

    I can be your shadow
    You and I together, and I know
    I wanna be there, girl
    But I can’t even be there for myself

    I’m the one you want, bring you to your knees
    What you need the most is a chance to leave
    I wanna take you somewhere that you’ve never seen
    Japan or Amsterdam, don’t have to be a dream

    Maybe I’m just here to work
    And play by the rules of attraction
    I’ll be there in front of you
    When we’re running from the sun

    I can be your shadow
    You and I together, and I know
    I wanna be there, girl
    But I can’t even be there for myself

    I can be your shadow
    You and I together, and I know
    I wanna be there, girl
    But I can’t even be there for myself

    I can be your shadow
    You and I together, and I know
    I wanna be there, girl
    But I can’t even be there for myself

    And you know I have you when you walk away
    And you know I have you when you walk away
    Just walk away

    Lyrics

    Comments Off on Coldplay – Speed Of Sound (X & Y Album) letras


    How long before I get in?
    Before it starts, before I begin?
    How long before you decide?
    Before I know what it feels like?
    Where To, where do I go?
    If you never try, then you’ll never know
    How long do I have to climb,
    Up on the side of this mountain of mine?

    Look up, I look up at night
    Planets are moving at the speed of light
    Climb up, up in the trees
    Every chance that you get
    Is a chance you seize
    How long am I gonna stand
    With my head stuck under the sand?
    I’ll start before I can stop
    Before I see things the right way up

    All that noise, and all that sound
    All those places I have found
    And birds go flying at the speed of sound
    To show you how it all began
    Birds came flying from the underground
    If you could see it then you’d understand?

    Ideas that you’ll never find
    All the inventors could never design
    The buildings that you put up
    Japan and China all lit up
    The sign that I couldn’t read
    Or a light that I couldn’t see
    Some things you have to believe
    But others are puzzles, puzzling me

    All that noise, and all that sound
    All those places I have found
    And birds go flying at the speed of sound
    To show you how it all began
    Birds came flying from the underground
    If you could see it then you’d understand
    Ah when you see it then you’ll understand?

    All those signs, I knew what they meant
    Some things you can invent
    Some get made, and some get sent
    Oh
    Birds go flying at the speed of sound
    To show you how it all began
    Birds came flying from the underground
    If you could see it then you’d understand
    Ah, when you see it then you’ll understand?
