Resident of Paddington Gavin Barclay, was involved in an altercation with neighbour Tom Deloney, earlier this week.

The fight erupted after a series of noise complaints resulted in a confrontation at the front of Mr Deloney’s house. In the ensuing fracas Mr Barclay was punched in the face.

Psychologist Sandra Marshall says this display of aggression is not an isolated incident and is occurring in a number of Sydney’s ‘pink’ suburbs.

Marshall states that it “is the pressure of society to conform to ‘normal values’, especially here in Sydney” that is the cause and that “it is very unhealthy for young men”.

These violent tendencies seem to be becoming more common. Marshall identifies both “pressure from magazines and peer groups”. She also recognises “the encroaching identity crisis as lifestyle groups such as metrosexuals gain prominence in the media, society and inner-city bars.

Barclay has accused Deloney of being a closet heterosexual he told the media “no gay could throw that kind of punch”.

Madrid, Spain. Over 15 000 people join in the annual Run for Your Life event. 

The fun run, which has been steadily rising in popularity each year, broke all records in terms of participation, arrests and hospital admissions. 

Event organizer Manuela Sanchez stated that both crowds and police made an effort to be at the starting-line from 6am. This resulted in both tensions and the weather being quite heated by 9am, when the event officially began.

Police Commissioner Eduardo Alvarez began proceedings by using the starter pistol to shoot leading dissident Alexis Fabien in the head. 

University students variously described the event as “a riot”, “a good time”, “quite different to the cocktails and bars I’m used to”.
