About Face Radio personality Dr Karl Kruszelnicki has lifted the lid on a bizarre but serious condition which prevents thousands of Australians from being able to recognise faces, even their own. What might sound like an excuse for poor memory is actually neurological defect causing facial features to become visually meaningless. Dr Karl couldn't even recognise the face of reporter Steve Pennells when he was sitting right in front of him and revealed the only way he can greet people when he is at work in the Triple J office is to have a seating plan on-hand. Hairstyle, glasses or body shape are key indicators to people suffering from face blindness - or prosopagnosia - but relying on facial features is almost impossible. Chasing History Katelyn Mallyon ditched a modelling contract to fulfil her dream of riding in the Melbourne Cup, and even a near-fatal fall couldn't deter her from making it there. On Tuesday she aims to make history as the second woman in as many years to win the iconic race. Last year, the nation cheered loudly as Michelle Payne rode her 100-1 outsider to an unexpected and extraordinary Melbourne Cup victory. Katelyn and Michelle train together under the guidance of millionaire thoroughbred owner Lloyd Williams. The Voice Michael Buble's new album Nobody But Me may pay homage to some of his favourite names in music, but there's was one track that ruffled his 'feminist' feathers. A cover of the 1961 Matt Monro hit 'My Kind of Girl' features on it, along with Buble's new hits, but the line "She cooks like an angel cooks" was changed because he felt it was "wrong". "I know that a long time ago that seemed to be socially acceptable," he said. "I changed the lyrics to, 'And I'm hooked, after just one look', because 'She cooks like an angel cooks' just seems really wrong at this point ... I'm a feminist," he admitted to Sunday Night. "Oh my God, I am in so much trouble after this interview." The Fighting Cholitas Elaborately dressed women wrestling in a boxing ring is easily among the world's more bizarre customs but in Bolivia it represents women overcoming hundreds of years of oppression. Some to the proud women called cholitas and their wrestling spectacle, once the lowest of the low in Bolivian society, they were the native maids to the higher classes and treated with fierce discrimination. Denys Sanjines is proud to be a cholita and has witnessed the culture of disrespect overturned in just the last decade. When Bolivia elected its first indigenous president in the 1990s, Evo Morales, the locals rose up and young women found pride in their heritage.
