Carjacking at Callaghan | Yak Rewind

Hey guys I’m Lauren and welcome back to
Yak Rewind where we take a look at the hottest trending UON news for the last
two weeks. You might have heard that on Saturday
afternoon at 1:30 p.m. a 19 year old man had his car stolen at the tower’s
residents on the Callaghan campus. A man with a firearm approached the 19 year
old demanding the student get out and proceeded to steal his car. The offender
drove a 2004 red Mazda 3 hatchback along Maitland road at Hexham and is described
as being between 25 and 35 years old tanned complexion dark wavy hair and a
medium build. He was wearing a white t-shirt black tracksuit pants possibly
black work boots and a black motorcycle helmet. Thankfully the victim was not
hurt in the incident. If you have any information about the incident make sure
to contact Crime Stoppers on 1-800 triple three triple zero and if you find
yourself in danger on campus contact university security services or call
triple zero. Speaking of staying safe this April will mark the three year
anniversary of the Newcastle 2015 storms, but you would be forgiven for
believing we had somehow traveled back in time. The Newcastle, Lake Macquarie
and Central Coast regions were absolutely battered by severe rains just
last week. With all this crazy weather happening you might be worried about
your safety on campus but the UON severe weather procedures exist to keep
students and staff safe. Myuon has alerts and announcements when there are
campus-wide closures and there is 24/7 security on campus, help points in the
form of blue speaker poles, and contact numbers for each of the campuses in the
case of an emergency make sure that your mobile phone number
on my hub is up-to-date so that you receive critical alert text messages. And
if you’re ever unable to make it to uni safely make sure to let your academics
know. Assessment deadlines can always be negotiated in adverse circumstances and
your safety is the priority. So you know the internet? That thing that has newcat+ which makes finishing that last-minute assignment a whole lot
easier… or a whole lot harder if you get distracted by YouTube like I do…
Well website domains in Australia might get flipped turned upside-down because of the
federal government recently announcing a review of the management of dot-au
domains to basically knock out the dot-com part of Australian websites. The
proposed changes received a large amount of support but it’s also raised several
concerns particularly for small businesses over its
implementation. There are more than three million Australian domain names so what
will this mean for small businesses? Could they lose out on this nationwide
change because they need to pay for the new domain? Or another website registers
their domain first? Questions in relation to who gets priority in registering
domains still remain unanswered. Are you studying mineral engineering, sport,
anatomy, architecture, nursing or education at UON? Well you’re studying
one of the top 100 subjects in the world according to the 2018 Q S World
University Rankings. In fact 15 UON subjects made the top 200 list. This is
the first year UON’s sport subject has made the list, mostly thanks to the
Bachelor of exercise and sports science exclusive to Ourimbah campus. This degree
allows students to work with the Central Coast Mariners, the Newcastle Jets, and
the Newcastle Knights. People in this degree were even doing some research
about muscle injury in basketball with the NBA last year. You can check out
details about the study in the link below. And that’s all for this episode
make sure to leave all your thoughts in the comments below and we’ll catch you
in the next episode. Bye!
