toilet paper man

Two women have been charged with affray after a fight over toilet paper broke out at a Sydney supermarket.

Police were called to the melee at a Woolworths in the Sydney suburb of Chullora on Saturday after reports a 49-year-old woman had been assaulted.

Footage of the incident showed a group of women pushing, yelling and fighting over a jumbo packet of toilet paper amid panic buying caused by the coronavirus.

One woman yells: “I just want one packet.”

Another woman replies “No, not one packet”, before two supermarket workers intervene to break up the argument.

A campaign initiated by Beijing in early February has received an active response from cartoonists nationwide. It is a joint effort among multiple organizations, including the Beijing Municipal Culture and Tourism Bureau and the Beijing Animation and Game Industry Alliance, and calls for artistic creations to convey knowledge and positive spirit in the nation's fight against the novel coronavirus. Organizers have received more than 1,000 works of art and a total of 100 of them will be selected to display at a comic and animation festival later this year.

the humble toilet roll...

Preliminary analysis of the unprecedented run on toilet paper appears to show mainstream media has been driving the fear and panic, and that images of cleaned-out supermarket shelves are triggering shoppers on a subconscious level, according to researchers at QUT.

The communications and digital media researchers who recently studied the spread of the #ArsonEmergency hashtag during the bushfires are tracking popular hashtags and collecting data on the spread of certain images on Twitter and Instagram.

Though there hasn't been time for an in-depth analysis, Associate Professor of Communications Daniel Angus says there are early signs that patterns of panic buying follow the spread of images of stripped-bare supermarket shelves.

This is not the first time Yulia Ushakova has angered social media users. In 2019, they criticised her for an ironic comment to a photo that depicted her on a treatment table wearing only a thong and bandage on her ankle. “Twisted ankle, I found a wrinkle under my bottom, I broke two nails. And all in one day”, read the caption.

Russian bodybuilder and fitness model Yulia Ushakova has caused a stir on social media by posting a photo of herself wearing a swimming suit she made out of respirators and a medicinal mask amid  the coronavirus pandemic.

"I just ordered on AliExpress this trendy swimsuit. The built-in valves allows the skin to breath, unfortunately you can’t wear it for more than two hours. I don’t know whether this has become a new challenge on Instagram. But I like the idea. What do you think?", Ushakova asked her 515,000 followers.

some old cartoons that are in step with today...

 

Crawley by Stuart McCrae. This cartoon, published about 30 years ago, is about washing your hands carefully:

Also published about 30 year ago, this cartoon by Phil Somerville was about the pollution on the beaches. These were the good old days, when Bondi and Manly sewage works, in Sydney, were spewing effluent near and on the beaches. The State government then dug some tunnels to take the rubbish "about 15 miles out to sea" where apparently the little fishes are happy, and the sardines have become as big as gropers... It also resonate with our two persons maximum policy in public places:

Have a good day in your isolation...
