Monday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
The Janoskians: In the continuing story of Facebook trolling, teen band The Janoskians have decided to shut down their Facebook page after constant harassment and hate filled posts. An anti-Janoskians group has attracted over 19 000 members and has resulted in court action, with an intervention order being filed against Tristan Baker (who appears to be extremely active on said page.) Yesterday, the home address and phone number of Janoskian band member, 16-year-old James Yammouni were published on the page, resulting in dozens of people turning up at his house and phoning him.

The mesh has not undergone clinical trials and is estimated to have been used to treat around 20 000 women. It can cause all kinds of painful side effects and even internal damage. Sydney woman Julie Davis is the lead plaintiff in the class action, represented by Rebecca Jancauskas: ”This prolapse mesh class action that we’ve commenced in the Federal Court today has the potential to be the biggest product class action that Australia has ever seen,” Ms Jancauskas said.
