Just awful…

According to Perth Now, Meegan Hefford — a 25-year-old bodybuilder from Mandurah, Australia — was found unconscious in her apartment on June 19 where doctors later diagnosed her with urea cycle disorder, which blocks the body from breaking down protein.

On June 22, the mother-of-two was declared brain dead due to the buildup of ammonia in her blood and fluid in her brain. "Intake of bodybuilding supplements" was listed as one of her causes of death.

Hefford was training for a competition in September and was drinking protein shakes and eating protein-rich foods.

Prior to her hospitalization, the paramedicine student told her mom Michelle White she was feeling "weird," to which Michelle responded:

"I said to her, 'I think you're doing too much at the gym, calm down, slow it down."'

Ultimately, her family wants to regulate the sell of supplements, to prevent another family from experiencing their tragedy.

"I know there are people other than Meegan who have ended up in hospital because they've overloaded on supplements. The sale of these products needs to be more regulated."

Meegan leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son.

The disorder affects one in 8000 people.

Is this one of the lies to authorities we've been hearing so much about with Johnny Depp???

Legal documents obtained by People allege that the former managers who worked with Depp — The Management Group (TMG) — apparently confirm that the actor himself was "fully aware" that he was illegally bringing his dogs into Australia two years ago.

You'll remember it was a massive controversy at the time, how Johnny was facing dog smuggling charges after failing to follow quarantine protocols in the country.

And while Johnny still maintains that he loves Australia despite the whole controversy, it increasingly sounds like he may have known what was going on — and that what he was doing was illegal — the entire time.

Part of the legal documents from TMG read (below):

A momma's gotta nurse… and help prevent the spread of black lung disease!

Yet Australian senator Larissa Waters seamlessly did both on Thursday when she addressed her fellow lawmakers in the chamber — WHILE breastfeeding her 3-month-old daughter!

The politician made stirrings on social media after she was recorded nursing her daughter Alia Joy while simultaneously moving forward a motion to help coal miners after a breakout of black lung disease.

The senator was essential in passing legislation last year to allow parliamentary members to breastfeed in the senate chambers. She became the first woman to exercise this right in May after returning from a 10-week long maternity leave.

But this week was another first for Waters — breastfeeding from the podium:

WTF? Netflix Might Get Banned In Australia!

| Filed under: TV NewsAustraliasticTech TalkGIFsNetflix

Uhhh...

Australians might find themselves without Netflix if the country applies its new local quota to streaming services!

In case you didn't know, Australia already has a quota requiring 55% of what airs on TV between the hours of 6 A.M. and midnight to be local Australian content.

Unfortunately, Netflix and other streaming services are being looked at as "challenging existing business models" by not having the same rule apply — and they may soon be banned if they don't adhere to any new quotas.

But how will our Aussie friends get their Netflix and chill? Sigh.

The Department of Communication and Arts explains:

"Content produced in Australia, or under Australian creative control, reflects and shapes our national identity, character and cultural diversity. When exported, Australian content promotes an Australian view of the world and showcases our cultural and creative talents. It also delivers economic benefits and encourages tourism."

The government will still need to review any quota, but we can't imagine how people will react if Netflix doesn't make the cut.

After all, would they really go so far as to ban the site and app??

Guess only time will tell!
