If you've been living under a rock, you'd know that Australia is a continent<\/strong>: a huge ass piece of dirt situated between the Pacific and Indian Ocean.<\/h3>

The 23.6 million inhabitants (not citizens, because it's not a country) ride kangaroos to school, barbeques are stolen in the dead of night, koalas drop the sky. It's complete chaos.

It's true that Australia did not become an independent nation<\/a> on January 1st 1901; Federation Day was a celebration of being a continent, not declaring independence as the six colonies joined together to become the Commonwealth of Australia.

Ashley Arnold, a 27-year-old student of Southern New Hampsire University studying an online sociology degree clearly doesn't realise Australia is a continent. Her final assessment, a comparison of the social norms between the US and another country was marked fairly - because she picked Australia, and that ain't a country.<\/p>

Her professor was right.\u00a0<\/strong><\/p>

Despite this, Arnold wrote to her professor<\/a>, who doesn't know how to Google anything and has a PhD in philosophy, to make her understand Australia is, in fact, a country (we all know it's not).<\/p>

I believe I got zero or partial credit because the instructor said, 'Australia is a continent; not a country. However, I believe that [it] is a country. The research starter on the SNHU\u2019s Shapiro library written by John Pearson (2013) states, that Australia is the 'sixth-largest country in the world' (n.p.). The full name of the country is the Commonwealth of Australia, meaning Australia is both a continent and a country. Therefore, these sections of the rubric should be amended.<\/blockquote>

But her professor wasn't having it.<\/p>

I will gladly re-examine your week 2 milestone project report.<\/p>But before I do I want you to understand that any error in a project can invalidate the entire research project. Research is like dominoes, if you accidentally knock over one piece the entire set will also fall. Australia is a continent; it is not a country.<\/strong> That error made it nearly impossible for you to accurately complete your week 2 research outline correctly. As I mentioned above I will look over your week two paper once again and see if you earned more credits than I gave you.<\/blockquote>

After providing even more sources (which are not valid at all) to prove Australia is a country, the professor agreed to review the assessment.<\/p>

She got a B+ in the end. Solid effort for proving something entirely false.<\/p>

However, her professor did give her some words to think about:<\/p>

\"Please make sure the date, the facts, and the information you provide in your report is about Australia the country and not Australia the continent.\"<\/p><\/blockquote>

\u201cThere will be a revolution.\u201d \u2013 Emily Warramurra on her new single, culture and the power of music.<\/h3>

Emily\u2019s new single \"Ngarrukwujenama\", which translates to \u201cI\u2019m Hurting\u201d is a perfect balance of folk and blues, sung completely in her local language of Anindilyakwa<\/a>. Her soft yet soulful voice dances over music that\u00a0draws inspiration between Meg Mac and Tash Sultana<\/a>: the perfect teaser for the new album to come. Despite having no knowledge or understanding of the language, you can feel the importance of the words as Emily sings them.<\/p>

The lyrics tell the story of the 2013 court case between a mining company and the traditional owners of Emily\u2019s home of Groote Eylandt. The local community won, resulting in\u00a0a total ban on seabed mining around the island. Ngarrukwujenama is about that fight and is for the people, says Emily.<\/p>[caption id=\"attachment_18751\" align=\"aligncenter\" width=\"1023\"]\"Source: Source: NT News[\/caption]

\u201cThe seabed to us is very sacred, and not only are we protectors of the earth, we\u2019re also protectors of the sea. The court case was a really big achievement, so I like to think of the song as just an anthem about that.\u201d<\/p>

Singing about local issues in a local language has seen a positive response by the community that helped inspire the song. Her Aunty is an Elder who works in linguistics, with a goal to preserve Indigenous languages. But on an island with only 1500 people, Emily says that motivating young people to pick up an ancient language is hard, and that\u2019s where the music comes in.<\/p>

\u201cEnglish is just becoming so dominant, even on Groote,\u201d Emily says, \u201cso I just thought \u2018What better way to preserve language than through music?\u2019 It\u2019s so catchy and creative and fun, so I thought that was the best way to utilise it.\u201d<\/p>

Singing in Anindilyakwa is a win for everyone according to Emily. The people on the island appreciate the message being communicated in their own language, and she loves being the one to create that preservation. Outside of literal understanding, she is happy that those who don\u2019t speak the language can still enjoy the song.<\/p>

\u201cWhen I sing in my language the people know where I\u2019m coming from, they\u2019re able to connect on a deeper level. But if I\u2019m singing to someone like you, you\u2019d be so interested, but you wouldn\u2019t be able to understand. But that\u2019s exactly what music is about; it\u2019s about whatever feeling it gives you,\u201d she says.<\/p>

There\u2019s a new political wave forming in the music industry. This year\u2019s triple j Hottest 100<\/a> gave a special welcome to those who may have never heard the countdown before when it was played on Australia Day.<\/p>

In the list, Camp Cope\u2019s feminist anthem \u201cThe Opener\u201d about women in music scored a spot at number 55. Triple j freshman and Arnhem Land local Baker Boy scored two spots, with \u201cCloud 9\u201d at number 76 and \u201cMurryana\u201d at number 17. The latter is the highest-ranking song sung in an Indigenous language, and second highest by an Indigenous<\/a> artist or group, only one behind A.B. Original\u2019s \u201cJanuary 26\u201d which came in at 16 last year.<\/p>[caption id=\"attachment_18753\" align=\"aligncenter\" width=\"1023\"]\"Source: Source: NT News[\/caption]

Baker Boy got votes from Emily, who had to use her brother\u2019s account to do a last-minute election after she forgot her triple j password, and hearing him place so high made her proud of the barriers that are slowly breaking down.<\/p>

\u201cWe\u2019re so young, and we have so much talent. It\u2019s so inspiring to see people like Baker Boy following that path. We still have to break down these stereotypes, and even though they\u2019re not as hectic as they were way back when, they still exist.\u201d<\/p>

Exposure to music from a young age is what drove Emily to create it in the first place. Growing up, it was rare to see women in the community perform music publicly, as typical gender roles were practised. She wanted to go against the norm while still singing about the things that were important to her and those closest to her. Now based in Brisbane, she is surrounded by talented women, which is what motivates her to pursue her goal.<\/p>

\u201cThe music scene here is happening for the sisters. It\u2019s so empowering to see, and that\u2019s what really drives me. This year will be a revolution. It\u2019s time to stand up for rights and equality, and seeing all this is how I know I\u2019m gonna be danger.\u201d<\/p>

Politics, the environment and a feeling of home is a big part of her\u00a0upcoming album, set to be released in mid-2018.\u00a0Milyakburra <\/em>is a dedication to her community and is named after the neighbour island of Groote. Emily says that she\u2019ll still be singing about her culture, but we should expect more than just her voice over an acoustic guitar the predominant feature on her Black Smoke<\/em> EP.<\/p>

You can catch Emily Warramurra for free when she performs at Barangaroo Reserve in Sydney on February 25.<\/p>","post_title":"There Will Be A Revolution: Emily Warramurra","post_excerpt":"","post_status":"publish","comment_status":"open","ping_status":"open","post_password":"","post_name":"there-will-be-a-revolution-emily-warramurra","to_ping":"","pinged":"","post_modified":"2018-02-11 10:48:04","post_modified_gmt":"2018-02-10 23:48:04","post_content_filtered":"","post_parent":0,"guid":"http:\/\/chattr.com.au\/?p=18618","menu_order":0,"post_type":"post","post_mime_type":"","comment_count":"0","filter":"raw","_image":"https:\/\/chattr.com.au\/wp-content\/uploads\/2018\/02\/Wurramara.jpg","_date":"February 10, 2018","_post_content":"\u201cThere will be a revolution.\u201d \u2013 Emily Warramurra on her new single, culture and the power of music.Emily\u2019s new single \"Ngarrukwujenama\", which translates to \u201cI\u2019m Hurting\u201d is a perfect balance of folk and blues, sung completely in her local language of Anindilyakwa.

The highlight of the film award season is upon us, with the recent announcement of the nominees of the 90th annual Oscars. With many smaller events having already taken place, many categories have strong frontrunners ahead of the biggest award event of the year. Here are our predictions of the main six categories for the 90th Oscars:<\/p>\r\n

Best Picture - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri<\/em><\/strong><\/p>\r\n

Despite all the nominations and winning PGA<\/a>'s Best Picture, Guillermo del Toro<\/a>\u2019s The Shape of Water<\/i> appears to be an outside chance for the Oscars Best Picture<\/em>, with many tipping one of the Golden Globes<\/a> Best Motion Picture<\/em> winners, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri<\/i><\/a> to take out the trophy. The only other film with a running chance is the other Golden Globes Best Picture<\/em> winner, Lady Bird<\/i><\/a>.<\/p>\r\n

The remaining six Best Picture<\/em> nominees are <\/span>Call Me by Your Name<\/span><\/i><\/a>, <\/span>Darkest Hour<\/span><\/i><\/a>, <\/span>Dunkirk<\/span><\/i><\/a>, <\/span>Get Out<\/span><\/i><\/a>, <\/span>Phantom Thread<\/span><\/i><\/a> and <\/span>The Post<\/span><\/i><\/a>. Of those films, only <\/span>Darkest Hour<\/span><\/i> and <\/span>Phantom Thread<\/span><\/i> did not receive nominations in the Best Motion Picture<\/em> category at the Golden Globes.<\/span><\/p>\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=6xvy3t2O81w\r\n

Best Lead Actor - Gary Oldman<\/strong><\/p>\r\n

All five <\/span>SAG<\/span><\/a> nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor (Leading Role)<\/em> were nominated for Best <\/em>Lead Actor<\/em>. The nominees for the Oscar are <\/span>Timothee Chalemet<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Daniel Day-Lewis<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Daniel Kaluuya<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Gary Oldman<\/span><\/a> and <\/span>Denzel Washington<\/span><\/a>. \u00a0The favourite for the Oscar is <\/span>Darkest Hour<\/span><\/i>'s Gary Oldman after he won both the Golden Globe and SAG in recent weeks. <\/span><\/p>\r\n

Best Lead Actress - Frances McDormand<\/strong><\/p>\r\n

Four of the five of the SAG nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor (Leading Role)<\/em> carried over into the Oscar nominations. <\/span>Sally Hawkins<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Frances McDormand<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Margot Robbie<\/span><\/a> and <\/span>Saoirse Ronan<\/span><\/a> were all nominated, with SAG nominee <\/span>Judi Dench<\/span><\/a> missing out in favour of <\/span>Meryl Streep<\/span><\/a>. <\/span>Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri<\/span><\/i>'s Frances McDormand appears to be the frontrunner after winning the SAG and Golden Globes awards however an upset could be on the cards as Saoirse Ronan also won a Golden Globe for her lead performance in <\/span>Lady Bird<\/span><\/i>.<\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"alignnone\" width=\"620\"]\"Oscars\" Source<\/a>: Frances McDormand with her supporting actors Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson[\/caption]\r\n

Best Supporting Actor - Sam Rockwell<\/strong><\/p>\r\n

The Best Supporting Actor<\/em> category again reflected the SAG nominations, with <\/span>Willem Dafoe<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Woody Harrelson<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Richard Jenkins<\/span><\/a> and <\/span>Sam Rockwell<\/span><\/a> all receiving nominations for both awards. The only change to the SAG nomination list is the inclusion of <\/span>Christopher Plummer<\/span><\/a> over <\/span>Steve Carell<\/span><\/a>. Despite being nominated at the Golden Globes, many have questioned Plummer's nomination as a PR move after <\/span>Plummer was cast to replace Kevin Spacey<\/span><\/a> in <\/span>All the Money in the World<\/span><\/i><\/a> following sexual allegations against Spacey. The frontrunner for Best Supporting Actor<\/em> appears to be <\/span>Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri<\/span><\/i>'s Sam Rockwell after he won both the SAG and Golden Globe.<\/span><\/p>\r\n

Best Supporting Actress - Allison Janney<\/strong><\/p>\r\n

The Best Supporting Actress<\/em> category produced a surprise with <\/span>Lesley Manville<\/span><\/a> being nominated despite not receiving a nomination\r\n\r\nin either the SAG or Golden Globes awards. She will go out against <\/span>Mary J. Blige<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Laurie Metcalf<\/span><\/a>, <\/span>Octavia Spence<\/span><\/a> and frontrunner, <\/span>I, Tonya<\/span><\/i><\/a>'s <\/span>Allison Janney<\/span><\/a>. Janney won both the SAG and Golden Globe.<\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n\r\n[caption id=\"\" align=\"aligncenter\" width=\"560\"]\"Oscars\" Source<\/a>: Guillermo del Toro after his recent Golden Globes win[\/caption]\r\n

Best Director - Guillermo del Toro<\/strong><\/p>\r\n

The Best Director<\/em> category honoured storytellers, with all five nominees also having screenwriting credits. First time directors <\/span>Greta Gerwig<\/span><\/a> and <\/span>Jordan Peele<\/span><\/a> were nominated alongside veteran director <\/span>Paul Thomas Anderson<\/span><\/a>, despite all three not being previously nominated at the Golden Globes. The only two Golden Globes nominees are Guillermo del Toro and <\/span>Christopher Nolan<\/span><\/a>. Del Toro went on to win the Golden Globes and is now favourite to take home the Oscar. <\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n
