How did police find four-year-old Cleo Smith?



WA Police Commissioner confirms a 36-year-old man with no connection to the family is in custody after Police found Cleo Smith in locked house in Carnarvon

 “We left no stone unturned” WA Police Commissioner said on local radio.

WA Police Commissioner Chris Dawson said this is one of the most remarkable days in policing in WA.

Commissioner Dawson said he had seen the video of the rescue and Cleo was as good as can be expected.

“This is why Police come to work everyday, we never gave up hope” He said live on ABC radio Perth.

How was Cleo Found?

Cleo went missing from her family tent on October 16th. Police covered hundreds of Kilometres in their search.

“We put everything we had at it. So obviously, our homicide squad trained, experienced investigators/detectives, our analysts, our technical people, drone pilots, air-wing, the whole lot,” Commissioner Dawson said on ABC.

“We mounted our general duties police who did a tremendous job within minutes of arriving, the first officers in the scene, within minutes, declared it a forensic scene and sealed it off which was just really, really good policing. From that moment on, it’s just been a really dedicated team of well over 100 on the scene itself and we were prepared for a long haul but we’re so, so pleased.”

They used drones to forensically map every area, inch-by-inch looking for clues, whether it is sand disturbances, tyre tracks.

 It was a huge operation going through forensic items, thousands of lines of phone data, using satellite imagery, CCTV. 

The feel was that Cleo would be the next William Tyrrell and next Madeleine McCann.

Cleo’s case has been raised in federal parliament, with Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews saying the government was strengthening laws to give agencies greater scope to act in the case of crimes against children.

Victoria’s Secret criticized for trans woman’s apology



Victoria’s Secret is facing backlash after issuing an apology to a transgender woman who had a negative experience while trying on bras at one of their stores.

The incident has ignited a debate about inclusivity and sensitivity in the fashion industry.

The controversy began when the trans woman, who remains anonymous, visited a Victoria’s Secret store to shop for bras. She reported feeling uncomfortable and discriminated against by store staff.

In response to her complaint, Victoria’s Secret issued an apology, acknowledging the incident and expressing their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

However, the apology itself has come under fire from both supporters and critics.

Some argue that the brand’s apology is insincere and merely an attempt to save face, while others believe it is a step in the right direction towards a more inclusive shopping experience for all customers.

The incident raises important questions about how brands should handle situations involving discrimination and whether their apologies are genuine or performative.

It also highlights the ongoing challenges faced by transgender individuals when accessing spaces traditionally designed for cisgender customers.

As the fashion industry continues to evolve, many are calling for a deeper examination of inclusivity and sensitivity, not just in policies but in practice.

India’s shift to coal amid declining hydro generation



India has been grappling with a significant challenge in its energy sector as hydroelectric power generation has experienced a sharp decline.

This shift in the energy landscape has forced the nation to increasingly turn to coal as an alternative source of power.

The dwindling water resources and changing weather patterns have led to a decrease in hydro generation, posing a pressing dilemma for the country’s energy sustainability.

With India’s growing population and expanding industries, a steady and reliable power supply is crucial.

However, the drop in hydroelectric power output due to factors like reduced rainfall and glacial melting has strained the nation’s electricity grid.

As a result, coal-fired power plants have become a more prevalent choice to bridge the energy gap, despite concerns about environmental impact and carbon emissions.
