...Ms Gardinar's partner Mark quit his job as a chef to be with her and look after their 19-month-old daughter Layla. "They thought my son had dwarfism so they sent us to Brisbane for the birth. "I started stressing and worrying what would be wrong. "When he was born by an emergency C-section he had the cord wrapped around his neck and a heart murmur," she said. Luckily, Hunter didn't have dwarfism but only weighed 1.6 kilograms. A normal baby weighs between three and four kilograms. The tiny Hunter was in intensive carecare for nine days. Struggling with Hunter's health and no income, the family was one of 86 central Queenslanders supported by Ronald McDonald House Charities in Brisbane. "I feel like I owe them a lot. It would have been so hard if we couldn't have stayed there," said Ms Gardinar said. While Hunter is now a much healthier 3.3kg, the family will find out next week if he needs heart surgery. "If he needs surgery, we go back to Brisbane. I really hope it has settled down and he is okay," Ms Gardinar said. For now the family is grateful that Hunter even made it into the world and can smile and laugh with his little sister. "Layla and Hunter get along really well. She always wants to feed him and plays with him all day. "You can see he loves her too," she said. Topics"
...Michelle Turner was the first person to get connected to the iPhone 6 at Caneland Central's Telstra store. "I was so excited," she said. "I didn't expect to be first. "So the one hour wait was definitely worth it." Both Ms Turner and her soon-to-be-married sister Stacey are dedicated iPhoners. They woke up early yesterday. Stacey said she wasn't bothered her sister beat her in the challenge. "We were both excited when we got out of bed," she said. "Michelle got the phone first, but I got it a few minutes later. "It's kind of an early wedding present for me." The anticipation will be contagious as Mackay residents were among the first in the world to get one of this year's most sought-after smartphones. Telstra local area manager Madonna Burgess said Mackay residents embraced the new technology. "There are few things more exciting than an iPhone launch and we can't wait to make iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus available to our customers on Australia's largest and most reliable mobile network," she said. "Over the years, technology has developed to superstar status, particularly the smartphone. "Our phones are more than a mobile now, they are a part of how we connect to the people and things we love every day." Three in four Aussie mobile users (76%) own or use a smartphone and almost half (49%) own or use a tablet. Forty-three per cent of Australians use both a smartphone and tablet. DETAILS Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus have crisper screens, faster processors and sharper cameras. They are also bigger than previous iPhones. Topics"
...However, he said there would be no taping up of rubbish bins, as happened in Brisbane earlier this week. "We have good contact with the Islamic community and have no concerns. "They are good people. They are doing it tough at the moment, getting abuse from people they should not be," Insp Graham said. Twelve officers from Mackay were in Cairns this weekend, as part of the police presence during the G20 Finance Ministers meeting. A total of 90 officers from the Mackay district will be in Brisbane during the G20 Summit in November. "They will be performing a variety of roles," Insp Graham said. Police raids in Sydney and Brisbane this week were in relation to suspected terrorist activities. Topics"
..."Miners Memorial Day is a special but solemn day on the mining industry calendar in Queensland each year," he said. "Every year on September 19 we hold a memorial service to commemorate those workers who have tragically lost their lives in accidents since the start of mining in Queensland during the 1800s. "It reminds us all we must never become complacent about safety and must always strive to improve the protection of employees from hazards associated with the mining industry." The Miners Memorial Day Service is organised in a partnership between the Queensland Government, the mining industry and unions. It has been held across Queensland with the first two services in Brisbane, before it was moved to Blackwater in 2010, Mount Isa in 2011, Ipswich in 2012, and in Townsville last year. - APN NEWSDESK Topics"
