Bill Shorten fronts the trade union royal commission – politics live

The leader of the opposition becomes the third Labor leader to appear before a royal commission. Bill Shorten will answer questions on Wednesday about his time leading the Australian Workers’ Union. All the developments from the trade union royal commission, live

The media room is filling up in Sydney. Guardian Australia’s own First Dog is clearly astonished that the ABC’s 7.30 Report host, Leigh Sales, will have to take her place in history, down the back, behind BuzzFeed.

Hello everyone and welcome to Politics Live, a place where too much politics is never enough. We are coming together today, outside the normal parliamentary session, for Bill Shorten’s appearance before the royal commission into trade union governance and corruption – or #turc as the cool kids on social media call it.

Today is obviously a significant personal test for Shorten, as anyone who has ever been cross-examined in a court or quasi court process would understand. It’s a gruelling experience, and Shorten is prepared for the inquisition to stretch beyond today. We political journalists will make our various pronouncements about the implications for his leadership.

I relish the opportunity to talk about what I believe to be every Australian’s right – a good, safe job with proper pay and conditions.

Explore the Evolution of the Visual Effects in ‘Game of Thrones’

One of the major calling cards for Game of Thrones – besides their willingness to kill off any number of prominent characters – is their brilliant usage of visual effects. In a featurette by io9, the man responsible for achieving the grandiose spectacles, Joe Bauer, walks the viewer through how he and his team created the best special effects from each season – from crafting Drogon’s fiery retaliation against the Sons of the Harpy, to the enormous fight sequences like Battle of the Blackwater, Battle of Castle Black, and Hardhome.

Juana Perez Of The Bronx Found In Hospital After 4 Days Missing

YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) —  A Bronx woman was found in a hospital in Yonkers Tuesday after vanishing for four days.

Juana Perez, 68, was located late Tuesday, according to police. She had last seen leaving her Ogden Avenue home on July 3, police said.

Friday was Perez’s 68th birthday, CBS2’s Meg Baker reported.

Search Continues For Missing Bronx Woman Juana Perez

Perez’s daughter Aracelis Negro told Baker it was unlike her mother to just disappear.

“We depend on our mother a lot. We need her. Our family, my daughter,” said Negro. “We just want the community to come together to try help find my mother.”

Surveillance video had shown Perez leaving her home at around 12:30 p.m., two days before her family returned from vacation. She carefully opened her gate, took a right onto Ogden Avenue and headed toward 170th Street, Baker reported.

“It looks like she went to neighborhood, maybe to do some neighborhood shopping,” Negro said.

Her family had been seriously worried.

“She gets very nervous so she might shut down. She gets dizzy spells,” said Negro.

Nancy at the HighBridge Pharmacy says Perez usually waves as she passes by, but on Friday she kept her head down.

Perez’s son Rafael said his mother has lived here for 20 years but speaks little English and is a diabetic who had left home without her medication, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.

Juana Perez is described as being approximately 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighing 200 pounds with a stocky build. She has black hair and brown eyes and wears glasses (NYPD)

USA World Cup Parade 2015: Route, Date, Time, TV Schedule, Live Stream, More

The United States women’s soccer team has been riding high since capturing the country’s first World Cup title in 16 years on Sunday in a dominant 5-2 win over Japan. Now, it will be able to celebrate with its fans in a well-deserved victory parade.      

It wasn’t certain that Team USA would get a chance to celebrate with its fellow countrymen and countrywomen. Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer wrote a letter to New York mayor Bill de Blasio hoping to get a ticker-tape parade, per John Spina and Jennifer Fermino of the New York Daily News. 

“Our newest soccer champions present an opportunity for New York to recognize that heroes and role models come in all genders, and I hope you will work with me to make this parade a reality,” Brewer wrote.

De Blasio confirmed on Twitter that the women would get their chance to celebrate with the fans in a parade across New York:

Given the gonzo ratings for the World Cup final and how this year’s team captured the nation’s heart, it seemed like only a question of when, not if, there would be a parade. 

 

Date: Friday, July 10 

Time: 11 a.m. ET

Watch: Will Be Updated When Available

Live Stream: Will Be Updated When Available

 

Parade Route

Even though Friday’s parade is officially the big celebration for the United States women’s soccer team, it did get a brief moment to indulge the fans in Los Angeles. 

On July 7, all 23 players on the team took part in a rally at L.A. Live. The most memorable moment from that event was Lauren Holiday announcing her retirement, per Sports Illustrated‘s Grant Wahl:

Also at that rally, World Cup hero and hat-trick maestro Carli Lloyd talked about what the victory means after having a couple of days to sleep on it, per America’s Pregame:

Another key player for the United States who could potentially step away is Abby Wambach, though the former FIFA Player of the Year was noncommittal about retirement after the World Cup win, per Martin Rogers of USA Today

“There is probably no better way to go out, right?” Wambach said. “But…I’m just going to really enjoy this for now.”

It would be a great way for Wambach to step away. She was mostly asked to be a vocal leader on the sidelines, but the veteran was part of an emotional moment late in the game against Japan when Carli Lloyd gave her the captain’s armband. 

Sports provide an outlet for many things; chief among them is analysis. Everyone wants to know what happened, how it happened and if it can happen again. There were certainly pieces all over the Internet immediately after this World Cup ended that asked if Team USA could repeat because that’s what we do.  

Yet there is a human element that gets lost with the rush to provide context to a story. Fans in America didn’t tune into the game against Japan for what it means moving forward; they found a team they loved and supported each other throughout the World Cup. 

Everything came together perfectly for the United States to end a 16-year World Cup drought and capture the third title since 1991. That’s why we fell in love with them and why one more victory parade will be the appropriate sendoff for this group.
