Posing Naked for Penthouse, Primary School Teacher Suspended

Seorang guru SD muncul sebagai fotomodel telanjang di majalah Penthouse telah membikin geger para pendidik di Australia dan New Zealand. Bagaimanakah dengan pendidikan generasi mendatang dg sikap seorang oknum guru yg seperti ini.... apakah bisa diterima sebagai realitas dan moralitas jaman sekarang [di Australia] ataukah pandangan konservatif yg harus dikedepankan ??? Rupa2nya kasus2 kontroversial tetap menjadi topik hangat utk diikuti seperti halnya dengan kasus bintang film porno Jepang Maria Ozawa Miyabi yg mendapat banyak sorotan akhir2 ini dan akhirnya ditolak kedatangannya untuk main film di Indonesia.

A New Zealand primary school teacher who appeared naked on Australian Penthouse's website is being investigated by the New Zealand Teachers Council. Rachel Whitwell, girlfriend of pornographer Steve Crow, is featured in six saucy photos, including two totally nude shots and two topless poses, on australianpenthouse.com.au.

The 27-year-old boasts of what she does for a living and that she is from New Zealand in the "New Aussie Babes" section.

"I am a 26-year-old single schoolteacher from New Zealand that would love to get into modelling," Whitwell, who uses the nickname Lexy, is quoted as saying.

"I've written erotic stories for an R-rated magazine and run my own pole-dancing studio."

Teachers council director Peter Lind told Sunday News there would be an investigation.

"What is private and what is public is always a grey area but when they intersect we investigate.

"When a teacher is in the public arena we must say that it does impact on their ability to do their job."

Teachers council records confirm Whitwell is registered to teach until September 2011. She taught at Yendarra School in Otara, south Auckland, until a year ago when she left to spend time with her young daughter.

She plans to return to teaching once her child is older. New Zealand Educational Institute president Frances Morton wanted Whitwell's photographic appearance investigated by authorities.

"There is enough around this for the teachers council to have a look and come to a reasoned and principled decision," Morton said.

"This should never, ever get into a school and probably wouldn't.

"But you need to look at how it would affect her teaching as it is something outside of the classroom."

Families First's Bob McCoskrie said the images were "not a good look". "Teachers are role models and having a teacher linked with Penthouse is taking things too far," McCoskrie said.

"This is something the teachers council should be having a very hard look at."

Whitwell, who told Sunday News she was also interested in becoming a paramedic, said the naked images did not change the fact that she was a good teacher.

"People will vouch I'm a really good teacher.

"My ability to teach and have good relationships with students is not affected," she said.

She was surprised at the controversy. "I didn't think that anyone from New Zealand would see them," she added.

Yesterday Crow refused to comment. Last year, Sydney teacher Lynne Tziolas, 24, was sacked for appearing nude with her husband in Cleo magazine alongside an article headed, "Buck naked couples talk about their sex lives".

3 ways to combat rising fuel prices

harga LPG naik lagi yg segera akan disusul oleh BBM, karena harga dipasar internasional sudah keburu naik,, kita perlu mengambil langkah2 drastis untuk mengatasi masalah ini, inlah Kiat untuk mengatasi kenaikan harga BBM, yang disarankan Tim Ward seorang comedian dari negeri uncle sam.

I have heard the rumblings of many of you reader about the recent spike in gasoline prices. In fact it's all I seem to hear about lately. But at least it keeps you from rumbling about the infrequency of my columns and articles. Nonetheless, I have decided to try to help you get through this crisis by generously providing: 3 Ways to Combat Rising Gas Prices!

1. Don't Drive Your Car

This is, of course, the most obvious solution. If you never take the old Plymouth out the driveway, then it won't matter that at current gas prices it takes $125 to fill up the 30 gallon gas tank, or that you only get about 2.51 miles to the gallon. If you never drive, you could care less.

Of course, I know what you're going to say. "But Tim, I have places I need to go-like work. And the kids have school and soccer practice. And then there's grocery shopping and yoga lesssons and dinner at the Richardsons and blah blah blah and...." Ok, I get the point. Not everyone can sit around the house writing not-so-funny articles and searching the Internet for Drew Barrymore photos like me. I fully understand that some of you have a life. But just because you don't drive your own car doesn't mean you can't get around. The answer?

2. Carpool

It's seems so simple now doesn't it. Instead of using your gas-Use Someone Elses! Have someone else pay $5.50 a gallon for gas to take your kids to school. Make someone else dip into their retirement fund just so they can cover the gas bill needed to get you to the office and back everyday. Make someone else get a second job so that they can have a full tank of gas in their SUV when your daughter needs to cruise the mall. It's so simple.

Of course, the concept behind carpooling is that everyone takes turns driving. So in a normal carpool situation you would eventually be required to use your car and spend your money driving others around. But this is not a Normal Carpool Situation, this is a Tim Ward Carpool Situation (TWCPS). In a TWCPS you avoid using your own car by making it so that the other carpool participants would rather walk barefoot on 120 degree asphalt than ride with you. You achieve this by:

(a) never washing or cleaning your car. Leave it looking and smelling like the county landfill.

(b) Have the worst behaved child in your family sitting in the front seat at all times. Feed the child lots of candy so he/she is always superhyper.

(c) Refuse to discuss anything in your car except your spouses bad bathing habits, bodily fluids, hang nails, chest hair, etc.

(d) Only play reggae music on the radio. Loud!

You shouldn't have to worry about anyone wanting to ride with you ever again.

3. Ride the Bus/Subway

Many cities have a mass transit system that is an alternative to driving your own vehicle. If you live in a city that doesn't have one don't worry-you can always move. Of course, riding public transportation does have a few drawbacks, but these can be easily overcome if you follow these simple guidelines:

1. No matter what happens never, ever make eye contact with anyone. Making eye contact is an invitation for someone to mug you.

2. No matter what happens never, ever give up your seat to anyone. This is seen as weakness, and will be taken as an invitation to mug you.

3. No matter how tempted you are never, ever strike up a conversation with the person sitting next or across from you. This is very annoying and can be taken as an invitation for someone to mug you. Or worse, for someone to talk back.

4. Always make sure you are alert to get on and off at the right stop. Getting off at the wrong stop can lead to immediate mugging.

5. Never, ever take children with you on public transportation. Fellow passengers hate children. Children make you definite mug victim material.

Well, there you have it. 3 ways to deal with rising gas prices. Hopefully, you will be able to use these methods to keep from spending twice your car's Blue Book value just going to Walmart. Hopefully, next time your friends are grumbling and ranting about the mounting gas prices you will be able to just sit back and smile, content because the issue no longer concerns you. Hopefully, I've once more helped my loyal readers in a time of crisis. And all I ask in return as a simple thank you next time you see me. Just make sure we're not on the bus. I'd hate to have to mug you...
