Dodgers Painted As Villain In Australia

5902457928636948404.gif The Dodgers continue to be viewed as Goliath here. In Thursday morning's Sydney Morning Herald, there is a rooting guide to the opening series. It said that if the Dodgers lived source in Australia, they "would spend most of their time sipping lattes at Bondi. The payroll at the Dodgers is U.S. $245 million compared to $110 million for their rivals Arizona. If you like the idea of hanging with celebrities in Hollywood and strolling down Rodeo Drive, the Dodgers are your team." The article went on to say that Dodgers players would spend their offseasons on private jets visiting resorts while the Diamondbacks would "spend time catching up with family and friends enjoying sports on television." The Diamondbacks, of course, haven't done much to dissuade the public in Australia of these notions. They held a press conference before they boarded their charter in Phoenix to announce to the world, once again, source how thrilled they were to be going to Australia. While the Dodgers sent a small contingent of backups and minor-leaguers to Bondi Beach for a clinic with little-leaguers Wednesday, the Diamondbacks' entire roster hit the beach nearby.

Australia To Relax Qantas Foreign Ownership Limits

5912381949160222822.jpghttp://www.savingsdaily.com/post/caution-urged-over-weight-loss-drugs-due-to-potential-heart-risks width='200px' style='float:left;padding:5px' /> "I have enormous faith in the ability of Qantas to compete and to flourish, but I think it is best placed to compete and to flourish if it is unshackled and un-propped up by government," Abbott told reporters. While part of the Qantas Sales Act would be repealed, foreign ownership of the airline could still be curbed by other legislation. The Air Aviation Act states Australian-based international carriers have to be 51 percent Australian-owned with headquarters in Australia. Abbott suggested Qantas could avoid this restriction by splitting its international and domestic businesses. A foreign takeover bid for Qantas would also be subjected to a national interest test by the Foreign Investment Review Board. Qantas' credit rating was downgraded from investment grade to junk in December when it warned of a looming interim loss of up to AU$300 million and 1,000 job cuts. Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce, who has argued for an Australian government debt guarantee for Qantas, complains that its main competitor, (source) Virgin Australia, has cheaper access to capital because of its state owners. Virgin Australia is 64 percent owned by three state-owned carriers: Air New Zealand, Etihad Airways and Singapore Airlines. The opposition Labor and Greens parties, which hold a Senate majority, reacted to the news by repeating their opposition to foreign ownership of Qantas.
