feminist podcaster busted escaping covid 19 quarantine hotel through a fire exit to buy cigarettes

An Instagram influencer has been fined after escaping compulsory hotel quarantine through a fire exit.

Sarah Josephine Liberty fled from the Marriott Hotel on Pitt Street in Sydney at about 10pm on Saturday.

The Feminist Friday podcast host arrived in Sydney from Paris on Thursday and was taken to the hotel, where guests are unable to smoke while in lockdown. 

The 39-year-old was confronted by a security guard as she approached a fire exit on Saturday evening and a ‘short struggle’ ensued, police said.

Ms Liberty was able to escape from the guard through the exit and out of sight onto the street. 

She was found about 150 metres away after a police search in Circular Quay at about 10.45pm, NSW Police said. 

The Potts Point woman was taken to hospital for an assessment, before being transferred to another hotel managed by NSW Health.

She was given a $1,000 Penalty Infringement Notice for not complying with directions under the Public Health Act and breaching the Public Health (COVID-19 Air Transportation Quarantine) Order.

Police visited Ms Liberty’s hotel room after her escape to find the sprinkler system had allegedly been seriously damaged.

‘Inquiries into the damage are underway and legal action is expected to be taken,’ a NSW police media release reads. 

Ms Liberty uploaded an Instagram post that reads ‘you are stronger than you think’ on Friday after her first night in the Marriott.

‘These were the words my amazing Sydney GP just said to me, after I called him urgently – after a wave of anxiety hit me when I woke up realising I am going to be locked in a hotel room for the next two weeks,’ her post reads. 

‘And I’ll confess, it brought me to tears. I am strong, but after facing months of confinement in Paris, I just want to run to the ocean, eat Sydney Thai (nothing beats it), and a huge plate of oysters. Instead, I’m in hotel room with instant coffee, weatbix and not much else.

‘Having said that, I understand why confinement is necessary and am so happy to be home. So wish me Bon Courage for the next 2 weeks, and watch out for me when I’m released! I’m a woman on a mission.’

Of the 33,956 people who have gone into mandatory quarantine during the coronavirus period in NSW, Ms Liberty is the only person to be fined for breaching the Public Health (COVID-19 Air Transportation Quarantine) Order.

Chrissy Teigen has revealed that she and husband John Legend have lost their baby.

The 34-year-old model also penned a lengthy caption explaining the tragedy and expressed her family’s grief over the sudden loss.

She wrote: ‘We are shocked and in the kind of deep pain you only hear about, the kind of pain we’ve never felt before. We were never able to stop the bleeding and give our baby the fluids he needed, despite bags and bags of blood transfusions. It just wasn’t enough.’

Teigen was hospitalized on Sunday night after enduring a month of bleeding due to having a weak placenta and has remained at the hospital since.

She continued: ‘We never decide on our babies’ names until the last possible moment after they’re born, just before we leave the hospital. But we, for some reason, had started to call this little guy in my belly Jack.

‘So he will always be Jack to us. Jack worked so hard to be a part of our little family, and he will be, forever.’ 

Chrissy and John revealed in the music video for John’s new single Wild that they were expecting their third child together, a son.

In undoubtedly the most heartbreaking portion of Teigen’s caption, the model penned a message to her unborn son Jack.

‘To our Jack – I’m so sorry that the first few moments of your life were met with so many complications, that we couldn’t give you the home you needed to survive. We will always love you,’ she wrote.

‘Thank you to everyone who has been sending us positive energy, thoughts and prayers. We feel all of your love and truly appreciate you.

‘We are so grateful for the life we have, for our wonderful babies Luna and Miles, for all the amazing things we’ve been able to experience.

Teigen and Legend, who wed in 2013, are parents to daughter Luna, four, and son Miles, two.

Shortly after uploading her undeniably sad news to Instagram, Chrissy took to her Twitter page to further express her shock over the miscarriage.

‘Driving home from the hospital with no baby. How can this be real,’ she wrote.

Inside the Japanese retreat at 28 Mackennal Street in Canberra

An architect has transformed a 1950s brick cottage into a unique oriental retreat fronted by an unassuming façade on a quiet Canberra street.

Redesigned in collaboration between construction firm MegaFlora and architect Blake O’Neill, the one-of-a-kind two-storey at 28 Mackennal Street in Lyneham, in the capital’s leafy north, was inspired by the owners’ love of Japanese interiors which are simple but always of the highest quality craftsmanship.

Built from recycled materials sourced across New South Wales and the ACT, the four-bedroom house – which took three years to complete – has sustainability etched into every corner.

The outdoor entertainment deck is made out of timber salvaged from an old basketball court at the Australian Institute of Sport, while a whopping 680 metres of repurposed hardwood battens run along the ceiling alone.

Spacious living areas with towering ceilings and a north-facing kitchen which opens onto the terrace are spread over 292 square metres, along with a master bedroom complete with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite with two showers.

‘The open plan design of the master bedroom and ensuite makes it feel generous but the use of darker colours and a high level window which captures the street trees helps to create a sense of intimacy and privacy,’ architect Blake O’Neill told Daily Mail Australia.

A wooden bathtub clad in recycled Tasmanian oak is the centre-piece of the master bathroom which is flooded with natural light and covered in handmade floor-to-ceiling finger tiles – a traditional interior trend in the ‘Land of the Rising Sun’.

Other custom features include a steel frame encasing the brick fireplace and an enormous origami lamp, perhaps the most literal example of Japanese influence.

Natural materials were used wherever possible to bring a sense of the outdoors inside the home, Mr O’Neill revealed.

‘The theme revolves heavily around showcasing craftsmanship and drawing on elements of Japanese design like quality and the use of natural materials to create a home that is highly detailed and considered,’ he said.

‘Light, a sense of space and connectiveness to the outdoors also feature heavily.’

Outside, the landscaped garden is watered by a ‘smart’ irrigation system which can be controlled remotely from a phone app.

There’s also a roller door garage with parking space for four cars and a standalone studio attached to the main part of the house which could be used as a home office, rumpus room or guest suite.

So unique is the design that the property has been shortlisted for the 2020 Master Builders Association Housing Awards, which take place in November.

The house was originally listed for sale with McGrath realtors when the owners planned to up sticks and travel around Australia in a campervan with their young daughter.

COVID slammed the brakes on that idea, but the couple decided to temporarily relocate to the South Coast before taking on their next design project which may well be their ‘forever home’.
