Apresentador João Kleber vai ser “homenageado” no novo “Tá no Ar”

As gravações do “Tá no Ar”, com Marcelo Adnet e companhia bela, vão se estender por mais duas semanas na Globo. O programa voltará ao ar na próxima terça-feira (19) e irá até 5 de abril.

Vera Fischer é aguardada para uma participação especial no humorístico para reviver a personagem Helena, da novela “Laços de Família”, de Manoel Carlos, mas nos “moldes” do programa.

Ainda sobre o “Tá no Ar” que vem aí, Marcelo Adnet vai comandar um novo esquete, “Te Prendi na TV”, no qual faz de tudo um pouco para garantir a atenção do público diante da TV. A animação da plateia ficará por conta das dançarinas interpretadas por Georgiana Goes, Carol Portes, Verônica Debom e Renata Gaspar.

Em tempo, qualquer semelhança com um trabalho do João Kleber na Rede TV! não será mera coincidência.

Aguinaldo Silva busca “fora da Globo” padrão de série para o Brasil

Aguinaldo Silva trabalhará com diferentes grupos de roteiristas

 

Aguinaldo Silva pretende, com nova cartada, mexer com os bastidores e também com a programação das TVs, daqui e de fora, se tudo caminhar como se imagina. Logo depois do carnaval, a sua “Casa Aguinaldo Silva de Artes” terá quatro grupos de roteiristas trabalhando em quatro projetos diferentes, todos voltados para o universo de séries e minisséries, gênero já há algum tempo em destaque na televisão da Europa, Estados Unidos e outras praças.

Por uma questão de ética, esses roteiros, após finalizados, serão oferecidos primeiro à Rede Globo. Caso ela não se interesse, aí sim, os trabalhos estarão abertos para outros mercados. Todos mesmo, sem exceção. Como manda o bom juízo, esta “casa de criação” não irá investir em novelas, em função de o autor ter contrato de exclusividade com a Globo, mas, por meio de pessoa jurídica não há nada que impeça negociações de séries e minisséries com outros veículos.

Aguinaldo, como já dito por aqui, está fazendo um esforço enorme para lançar roteiristas e buscar um padrão de séries para o Brasil que ainda não existe. O que há por aí são basicamente modelos muito próximos de novelas ou adaptações de fora.

“A Regra do Jogo” não tem direito a casal feliz

Tóia e Romero Rômulo estão no grupo de casais infelizes

Tóia e Romero Rômulo estão no grupo de casais infelizes

O respeitável público certamente já percebeu que, em se tratando de uma novela das nove, não existe nenhum casal feliz em “A Regra do Jogo” (Globo). Esquisito, né?

Todos os que lá estão têm sérios problemas em seus relacionamentos.

São traições de um lado, desconfianças e mentiras de outro. Difícil salvar algum. Vai ver, o autor está deixando para “criar” pelo um ou dois nas últimas semanas.

Salvo qualquer mudança de última hora, o capítulo de encerramento desta novela de João Emanuel Carneiro irá ao ar em 11 de março, e depois será substituída por “Velho Chico”, de Benedito Ruy Barbosa, com Rodrigo Santoro protagonizando a primeira fase.

Thousands of older people exploring ‘rational suicide’: Nitschke

Pat and Peter Shaw took their own lives together in their home when they were both aged 87.

Pat and Peter Shaw took their own lives together in their home when they were both aged 87.

Thousands of older people are investigating peaceful methods to end their own lives because they want to control the nature and timing of their death, says controversial euthanasia campaigner Philip Nitschke.

The former doctor said there was a developing trend of baby boomers and people over 70 wanting to avoid “end of life medical nightmares” in which they are seriously ill and or feel trapped in a hospital or nursing home where it can be difficult to take your own life.

The head of Exit International said these people were “used to getting their own way and less likely to accept the ‘doctor knows best’ approach to issues as fundamental as one’s death”, and were sourcing a reliable lethal drug to stash in case they wanted to use it in the future.

Most of these people were putting themselves at legal risk to import and possess that drug, Mr Nitschke said, and some were getting caught up in blackmail scams where supposed suppliers threaten to report people to the police if they do not pay large sums of money online.

While customs are frequently intercepting the drug, Mr Nitschke said he knew of only three people in 10 years to be charged with importing it after customs tracked the order to them. All three received fines and were not convicted of a criminal offence.

Last week, Fairfax Media told the story of Peter and Pat Shaw – Exit members who took their own lives together in their home when they were both aged 87. Before their deaths, they told their family they were rational, had lived full lives, and did not want to run the risk of further ill health and institutionalisation.

In response to their story, Mr Nitschke called for the decriminalisation of people aged over 70 who import or possess the drug he promotes for a peaceful death. He said while many doctors “peddle” a line that you cannot be rational and take your own life, he believed otherwise and that the Shaws were a good example.

Professor Ian Hickie​, a psychiatrist and mental health campaigner, said he thought it was tragic that people wanted to “check out” of life because of myths and negative stereotypes about ageing, pain relief, hospitals and how the health system treats elderly people.

He said while some people may not have a mental illness when they end their own life, Exit International’s approach to teaching people about suicide was reaching vulnerable people who could, with further assistance, live a longer, enjoyable life.

Professor Hickie, of the Brain and Mind Centre, said Australian authorities needed to work on policies and resources to promote healthy ageing with a focus on getting the right care and support to people so they do not feel like a burden and live as well as they can in their later years.

He said people considering suicide or families discussing the issue should examine what is underpinning people’s motivation. Is it fear of being a burden? Is it fear of a lack of care?

“It’s a dialogue we need to have … There shouldn’t be a need to check out at any age.”

Schools shortage crisis hits Victoria

EXCLUSIVE

Up to 220 new schools need to be built in Victoria in the next decade to cope with an explosion in student numbers, research has warned.

But despite the alarming statistics, for the first time in 15 years, not a single new state school will open its doors to students when class returns next week.

Victorian schools must absorb 190,000 extra students between 2016 and 2026, according to an analysis prepared for Fairfax Media by the Grattan Institute.

This will mean 7200 extra classrooms and teachers, and between 140 to 220 new government and non-government schools.

“To have no state schools opening this year is disgraceful,” Australian Education Union Victorian branch president Meredith Peace said.

Many state schools are already feeling the squeeze and have crammed portables into their playgrounds to accommodate extra students. Others are turning away families, running classes in halls and storerooms and staggering lunchtime so there’s enough space for children to play.

Ms Peace said portable classrooms were being shifted across the state at an unprecedented and unacceptable rate. She said the Andrews government had made a good start by doubling the previous Liberal government’s spending on school infrastructure, but more investment was needed to keep up with the state’s ballooning student population.

Using 2015 population forecasts, the Grattan Institute found that more than half the extra students would live in just nine local government areas, with the crush felt most acutely in inner city suburbs and the outer growth corridor.

The City of Melbourne is facing the most severe schools shortage among inner-city municipalities, and is set to experience a 62.9 per cent increase in school-aged children in the next decade – or almost 7500 extra students.

It’s a situation that Denise Fung-Henderson – who is involved in lobby group City Schools 4 City Kids – knows all too well.

She moved to the Docklands eight years ago when her son was born, and hoped a school would be built in the area by the time he started prep.

But despite promises from successive state governments, there is still no school.

All other state primary schools in neighbouring suburbs are full so her children Will, 8, and Poppy, 6, attend a Catholic school in South Melbourne.

“We pay taxes, we pay council rates. Why are we not provided with the choice?” she said. “We should be provided with a government primary and secondary school.”

In Wyndham, the fastest growing Victorian municipality, 100 new classrooms will be needed every year over the next decade to accommodate almost 27,000 extra students.

The Grattan Institute’s Dr Peter Goss said successive governments had been caught “on the hop” by this population growth and good, long-term planning was needed.

“This is not just a temporary situation that will work through the system. It requires permanent solutions, not just ever more portables.”

He said a baby boom that started in about 2006 had already hit primary schools, and would impact secondary schools from 2018.

A spokesman for Education Minister James Merlino said the state government had dozens of new schools in the pipeline and was “working to address the issues created by the Liberals’ chronic under-investment”.

He blamed the fact that not a single new state school will open in 2016 on the former state government’s under-investment.

Fifteen new state schools are expected to open in 2017 and 2018, with the majority of these built under a public-private partnership and located in growth corridor suburbs including Point Cook.

Inner-city schools in the pipeline include South Melbourne (Ferrars Street) Primary School, Beaumaris High School, Richmond Secondary School, Prahran Secondary School and South Melbourne Park Primary School.

It is understood that Education Department data suggests that 50 new state schools will be needed in the next decade, with many existing schools able to accommodate extra students.

Cate Hall, a spokeswoman for Our Children Our Schools, an alliance of 22 public school lobby groups, said many parents were travelling great distances because they had no local state schools.

New schools should be provided according to need, rather than political expediency, she said.

Opposition education spokesman Nick Wakeling said the Premier had no plans to build for Victoria’s future education needs. “Victoria’s population is growing by 100,000 a year but the only new schools Daniel Andrews will be opening are those funded by the Coalition.”

Remembering the day it rained embers and burnt leaves

On January 18, 2003, the Orana Steiner School’s woodwork teacher, Chris Matthews, had an urge to go and see if his workplace was affected by the bushfires licking the edges of suburban Canberra.

“When I turned up, it was madness: all the trees were burning, everything was alight.”

“It was pretty chaotic,” Mr Matthews said, almost exactly 13 years later, surveying the Weston site that was ablaze as he arrived there.

“When I turned up, it was madness: all the trees were burning, everything was alight.”

He grabbed the irreplaceable tools of his trade he had collected over time and started extinguishing the flames closest to the buildings.

“I was trying to find a hose that would reach them,” he said, describing how plastic items were melting around the grounds.

“I had the hose going in and out the windows, through the classrooms, and I was stretching as much as I could.”

The roads to the school were blocked but Mr Matthews’ wife, Liana, managed to get there and she retrieved the student files.

“It was happening so quickly and we were running from place to place,” Mr Matthews said.

“It was raining embers and burnt leaves.”

He remembered the spectacle as the fire hit the gas mains and shot “about 20 metres, up in the air”.

Several people had joined them and a parent was trying to put out a fire in one of the classrooms when a fire engine arrived.

Mr Matthews said the firefighters turned the fire hose on him and told him to get away.

Soon after, a helicopter flew overhead to water bomb the area, saving a whole section of classrooms in the middle campus.

“The next day I was really wiped,” Mr Matthews said.

“I didn’t bring any water or anything like that.”

He said he was also “inappropriately dressed” and the rubber soles of his shoes began to smell as he moved through the burning soft fall.

Olga Blasch, the primary school’s assistant principal, said the kindergarten was “the biggest loss” and the younger children had worried about their teacher’s welfare, imagining she “lived” there.

Ms Blasch recalled how the debris and logs smouldered and burnt “for days” and people brought their own hoses to douse the premises.

She was heartened by “the love that came and the overwhelming support” shown to the Orana community, including a teacher and 20 families who lost their homes in the firestorm.

Mr Matthews received an “award of valour” for his efforts.
