The Project host Carrie Bickmore (centre, with co-host Waleed Aly) has been slammed online for launching her brain cancer appeal on the same day as a rival fundraiser for motor neurone disease. Carrie (right with new partner Chris Walker) is now selling a new set of pink and grey beanies from today as part of her Beanies 4 Brain Cancer appeal. The Project rung in the occasion with mentions of Carrie's late husband Greg Lange (left) who passed away from the disease and a young girl who has been struck down with brain cancer and told there isn't enough funding for a cure. The launch day coincided with the Big Freeze at the MCG which saw sales of iconic blue beanies in support of research into motor neurone disease. The Big Freeze is an annual fundraiser by Fight MND that 'freezes' Australian personalities by sliding them into a giant ice pool before the Queen's Birthday AFL match.

GRAPHIC WARNING CONTENT: An Australian tourist was left looking like Batman villain The Joker after his cheek was slashed wide open (inset) in a horrific machete attack.

They STILL haven't got the message! British holidaymakers carry on partying in Magaluf despite tough new noise laws banning sounds louder than a LAUGH
Officials are trying to quieten the holiday destination down - by limiting music volume to just 65 decibels, which is just below the level of a vacuum cleaner. Instead of relying on support from local bar and nightclub owners, who are opposed to the new legislation, councillors have installed electronic devices that automatically mute music that goes above the agreed level. The measure - which affects all late-night venues in the popular resort, plus other nearby hot-spots such as Palmanova - was brought in last month by town hall officials in Magaluf's municipality of Calvia, who say that they're enforcing a European directive.

Sydney-based man Gordon Wiggins suffered extensive burns after his home caught fire late last year. His dog Whisky, who was taken in by a fire fighter, has just been reunited with him.

Try talking your way out of this! Colombian wife is caught hiding a secret lover under her BED by her mother-in-law in awkward footage

A-list hairdresser reveals the EXACT place you should part your hair based on your face shape to ensure you look more attractive
Jordan Garrett, Stylist at Daniel Hersheson, insists there's a specific parting for each face shape - and choosing the right one for yours can knock pounds off your face. Ladies with oval face shapes like Jessica Alba, top left, can opt for any style because their face shape is so versatile. Jordan says that opting for a centre parting, left, is, however, the most flattering look over a side parting, right. Ladies with a round face like Jennifer Lawrence, top right, need to focus on creating structure by focusing on a centre parting, left, says Jordan. Parting your hair in the centre is much more flattering than on the side, right. The secret hair hack for a long face shape - like Sarah Jessica Parker's, bottom right - is a deep side parting, which the actress sported recently. Although she made it her signature look in Sex and the City, Jordan says ladies with long faces like hers should avoid a centre parting, right. If, like Scarlett Johansson, bottom left, you have a heart face shape, you should go for a severe side parting, left, because it breaks up your chin line. Scarlett often mixes up her hairstyle but Jordan believes a severe side, left, is better than a centre one, right.

The beautiful side to North Korea: Photographer claims Kim's communist enclave is 'extremely clean' and an 'exotic destination' we should all visit
Photographer Reuben Teo, 31, from Sarawak, Malaysia, took the photos of the everyday life of people in North Korea during a trip to the country last month. Mr Teo was only told not to photograph military, checkpoints and construction while in the country, and believes his pictures show a different side to North Korea than how it is usually portrayed in the media. Mr Teo said that he had visions of 'military, war and propaganda' in his head when he went to visit the country earlier this month. He said that he realized that North Korea was 'stuck in time', and it was as though he had been taken back to the 1980s when he arrived in the country

Before he was a killer: London Bridge jihadi is seen dancing at his sister's wedding before changed from 'life and soul of the party' who drank and smoked to a radicalised murderer in four years
Butt - who with Rachid Redouane and Youssef Zaghba killed eight and wounded dozens - is said to have been a 'normal' teenager growing up in London, who liked going out to nightclubs and playing five-a-side football. But he became radicalised after falling in with hate preachers Anjem Choudary and his cohort and appearing in a Channel 4 documentary called 'The Jihadi Next Door'.
