Japan and Australia to Strengthen Defence Ties "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sydney: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met his Australian counterpart Malcolm Turnbull in Sydney on Saturday where the pair agreed to deepen defence ties and stressed the importance of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

Abe’s visit comes amid heightened regional tension in the South China Sea and fears US president-elect Donald Trump will push ahead with his pledge to kill the trade agreement once he takes office on January 20.

“We have confirmed our commitment to the rule of law, free trade and open markets in our region,” Turnbull told reporters at a joint press conference.

Abe said the increasingly uncertain geopolitical landscape made the relationship between Japan and Australia more important than ever.

“It is important to guard and increase the robustness of the free, open and rules-based international order,” Abe said.

Both leaders spoke of their desire to see the TPP ratified, despite opposition from Trump.

The 12-member pact aims to cut barriers in some of Asia’s fastest-growing economies, but it does not include China.

Without US approval the agreement cannot come to fruition.

Following bilateral talks, the two leaders announced the signing of an Acquisition and Cross-Servicing Agreement (ACSA), which will increase cooperation in combined military exercises, training and peace-keeping operations. The agreement is expected to be finalised by the end of 2017.

The announcement comes nearly nine months after Australia chose a French bid over a Japanese design for a new fleet of submarines.

The loss of the $40 billion contract was a major blow for Abe’s ambitions to develop Japan’s defence export capabilities as part of a more muscular security agenda.

Japan, as well as Australia, is looking to protect its strategic and trade interests in the Asia-Pacific region, especially as China becomes increasingly assertive in...

Man and girl arrested after pursuit near Ballina "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

A 20-year-old man and a 14-year-old girl were arrested after a police pursuit from Ballina to Tweed yesterday in which the car they were in travelled for 45 kilometres on one tyre and three rims.

Police say that around 10.50am on Sunday, a Ford Falcon allegedly failed to stop for a roadside breath test at Ballina. A pursuit began but was terminated due to safety concerns.

About 12.30pm, police saw the vehicle at Wardell and tried to stop it. When it failed to stop, another pursuit commenced.

It ended about 1.15pm, when the car stopped on the Pacific Highway at Crabbes Creek, after road spikes were deployed twice and the car travelled on one tyre and three rims for about 45 kilometres.

The man and his young passenger were arrested at the scene and taken to Byron Bay Police Station .

A short time after the pursuit ended, the car caught alight.

Rare Ruby Sea Dragon Caught on Film, First Discovered in 150 Years "IndyWatch Feed National"

A rare red seadragon isn’t a mythical creature. It is real, and was first discovered in 2015. The species (Phyllopteryx dewysea) has now been captured on film.

They are so rare, in fact, that scientists presumed that they would have to comb at least a quarter-acre of ocean on average before finding a single individual.

rubyyy

Zoe Della Vedova

The cousins of the ruby seadragon are the common and leafy seadragons as well as sea horses.

The footage, filmed in Western Australia’s Recherche Archipelago, also marks the first time that the 10-inch-long fish has been seen alive. It is just the third known seadragon species, as well as the first discovered in 150 years.

Seadragons and sea horses are already enigmatic creatures. A female sea horse may have the babies, but the male sea horse carries eggs in his pouch until they are old enough to hatch. On a rare occasion, male sea horses can even give birth! They also represent some of the most intriguing life of the ocean.

“There is hidden biodiversity in the sea,” says Scripps Institution of Oceanography biologist Greg Rouse, who discovered the species with graduate student Josefin Stiller and Western Australian Museum researcher Nerida Wilson. “A big, charismatic fish like the ruby seadragon represents that.”

This species was found swimming almost 170 feet underwater, a very different habitat than its leafy seadragon cousins that swim along the southern Australia’s coastlines.

Scientists had to travel to the remote Recherche Archipelago to find the ruby seahorse. After four dives in rocky, windy seas with a remote-controlled mini-submarine, they finally filmed two ruby seadragons more than 167 feet underwater, as the fish swam through rocky gardens of sponges and nibbled at their prey, most likely tiny crustaceans called mysids. Footage of the species was published in...

MY FAVORITE BRUNETTE: THE BOND GIRLS "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"


Martine Beswick was the second actress (after Eunice Gayson) to appear in two James Bond films. There was a third and that actress will be identified in a future post, although hardcore Bond fans should already know the answer.

Beswick played Zora, a gypsy girl in FROM RUSSIA WITH LOVE (1963). Her screen time is limited but memorable as she's featured in Bond's visit to a gypsy camp and the subsequent gun battle that occurs there. Beswick got more screen time in THUNDERBALL (1965), in which she played Bond's assistant, Paula Caplan. She also appeared in several Hammer films including ONE MILLION YEARS B.C. (1966), PREHISTORIC WOMEN (1967) and DR. JEKYLL AND SISTER HYDE (1971).

Seeing the quantum future… literally "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Scientists at the University of Sydney have demonstrated the ability to “see” the future of quantum systems, and used that knowledge to preempt their demise, in a major achievement that could help bring the strange and powerful world of quantum technology closer to reality.

The applications of quantum-enabled technologies are compelling and already demonstrating significant impacts — especially in the realm of sensing and metrology. And the potential to build exceptionally powerful quantum computers using quantum bits, or qubits, is driving investment from the world’s largest companies.

However a significant obstacle to building reliable quantum technologies has been the randomisation of by their environments, or decoherence, which effectively destroys the useful quantum character.

Awww.. Lost Child Finds Mum 25 Years Later When He Recognised His Home 6000 Miles Away On Google Earth "IndyWatch Feed National"

A man who was accidentally transported 1,000 miles from home in India when he was just six years old traced his mum 25 years later from Australia using Google Earth.

Lost, Saroo Brierley ended up begging on the streets of India after being separated from his family.

But he was picked up by a charity that arranged for him to be adopted in Tasmania, Australia.

His story is now set to be featured in a new film, Lion, starring Nicole Kidman, charting his amazing life story.

Despite growing up in a loving family in Australia, he admits he spent years looking at maps and eventually at Google Earth for signs of the landmarks that he knew as a child.

And after recognising the village he was born in, Saroo traveled home - where he enjoyed an emotional reunion with his mother.

Saroo, who grew up in rural India, said that as a child he rarely had enough to eat and would often travel on trains in the area together with his brother.

But during one ill-fated trip in 1987, aged six, he had been dozing at a station with his brother and when he woke up he found that he was alone.

He said: "I opened my eyes and couldn't see my brother, but I saw a train in front of me with the door open and for some reason I thought he was on board.

More truths emerge on U.S. 'regrettable mistakes' bombing in Syria "IndyWatch Feed National"

On 17 September 2016 aircraft of the so-called 'coalition', led by the United States, bombed Syrian Army troop positions at Deir Ez-Zor. Aircraft from the United States, United Kingdom, Denmark and Australia took part in the attack. Between 62 and 90 (reports vary) Syrian troops were killed and more than 100 injured. The attack allowed ISIS forces to take control of what was a vital area protecting the airport. Comment: Russia-brokered ceasefire shattered as US airstrikes against Syrian Army in Deir ez-Zor leaves 80 soldiers dead, over 100 injured (UPDATES) At the time, the attack was labeled a "mistake". Australia's Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull apologized, saying he regretted the loss of life and injury to Syrian personnel. A spokesman for the Syrian government said that the attack was "intentional", a view shared by Syria's ally, Iran. The US military ordered an inquiry into the incident. It is usually the case with such inquiries that little is done, nothing other than "regrettable mistakes" are admitted, and no-one is sanctioned. Often, some reason is found to attribute the "error" to the enemy's actions, as with the bombing of the Kunduz Hospital in Afghanistan.

Crowdfunding Terrorism Through Halal Certifications "IndyWatch Feed National"

Middle East (SCF) – Although it is well known that the Wahhabist governments, royal families, and top businesses of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain directly finance jihadist terrorists in Syria, Iraq, and countries around the world, many consumers are unaware that percentages of their purchases of Muslim «halal» (imam-certified) food products eventually end up in the hands of jihadist organizations. Halal refers to any food product that can be eaten by observant Muslims. Anything other than halal is «haram» and prohibited for Muslims. Haram includes pork, blood, or meat from approved animals but which have been strangled or slaughtered with blunt knives.

Food and drink producers pay Muslim halal certifiers fees to certify their products as halal. According to Australian One Nation party leader Pauline Hanson and others, certain Muslim halal certification agencies use profits from certification fees to fund terrorist attacks around the world. During an election campaign in Queensland in 2015, Hanson told reporters: «ASIO [Australian Security Intelligence Organization] has picked up that this money has been funded through an organization to fund Syria and the terrorism there». ASIO, all too quickly, denied the charge.

Even if a small percentage of imams who certify products as being halal are passing the profits on to terrorist organizations, it potentially represents a large amount of money. Malaysian studies have valued the worldwide halal food industry as between $600 billion to $2.1 trillion. Halal certifications are usually paid by food companies at set annual rates. Considering all the firms worldwide that pay such fees to imam halal certifiers, this amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars. Some halal certifiers have become quite wealthy from the halal certification scheme. Halal certifiers have also been quite secretive about who receives donations, with some admitting only that the funds go to Islamic madrassa schools and mosques. However, many of these madrassas and mosques are linked to the Wahhabis.

Some Muslims have opined that halal certification is nothing more than a money-making scam, with the most ridiculous aspect being halal certification for dog food. It is ironic that the same imams who declare dogs to be «unclean» animals also willingly charge pet food manufacturers to certify food for the «unclean» beasts to be halal. Other Muslims have conceded that the halal certification scheme has become as financially corrupt as segments of the Jewish kosher product certification system. South African Muslim authorities have pointed out, to the dismay of the halal certification industry, that the Koran forbids imams from charging money to certify food as halal. Yet, the practice continues with fees charged for halal «stamps» on food, in some cases, i...

The Weekend Quiz – January 14-15, 2017 – answers and discussion "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Here are the answers with discussion for this Weekend’s Quiz. The information provided should help you work out why you missed a question or three! If you haven’t already done the Quiz from yesterday then have a go at it before you read the answers. I hope this helps you develop an understanding of modern monetary theory (MMT) and its application to macroeconomic thinking. Comments as usual welcome, especially if I have made an error.

Question 1:

The money supply is often defined to be the sum of currency on issue and demand deposits held in banks. The value of money always declines if the money supply rises.

The answer is False.

The question requires you to understand: (a) the difference between bank reserves and the money supply; and (b) the Quantity Theory of Money.

The mainstream macroeconomics text book argument that increasing the money supply will cause inflation is based on the Quatity Theory of Money. First, expanding bank reserves will put more base money into the economy but not increase the aggregates that drive the alleged causality in the Quantity Theory of Money – that is, the various estimates of the “money supply”.

Second, even if the money supply is increasing, the economy may still adjust to that via output and income increases up to full capacity. Over time, as investment expands the productive capacity of the economy, aggregate demand growth can support the utilisation of that increased capacity without there being inflation.

In this situation, an increasing money supply (which is really not a very useful aggregate at all) which signals expanding credit will not be inflationary.

So if nominal demand kept increasing beyond the capacity of the real economy to absorb it via increased production then the result will be inflation and the “value” of the dollar would start to decline.

The Quantity Theory of Money which in symbols is MV = PQ but means that the money stock times the turnover per period (V) is equal to the price level (P) times real output (Q). The mainstream assume that V is fixed (despite empirically it moving all over the place) and Q is always at full employment as a result of market adjustments.

In applying this theory the extreme mainstream position is to deny the existence of unemployment. The more reasonable mainstream economists admit that short-run deviations in the predictions of the Quantity Theory of Money can occur but in the long-run all the frictions causing unemployment will disappear and the theory will apply.

In general, the Monetarists (the most recent group to revive the Quantity Theory of Money) claim that with V and Q fix...

Reader Comments & Observations "IndyWatch Feed National"

Comments

COMMENT #1:  Regarding your post Currency vs Language, I wanted to add that in NY I have an abundance of IT co-workers that are H1-B visas holders working as consultants from India. They are extremely nice and I’ve enjoyed learning about their culture. As I’ve stated before, these consults overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton. Some of the consultants were naturalized and voted for Hillary. People from India are social and they often gather and speak among themselves; therefore, as more before naturalized and vote, you can expect more Democrat voters. With regard to language, they’ve confirmed to me that they speak their India state language at home, not English. You are correct, even in NY, “If that subculture then becomes the majority, the culture of the state will change and therein lies the seed …”

COMMENT #2: The Xi Jinping article about the coming new world order, in it you provide a good explanation of why we think linearly and they think cyclically. My explanation lies along the lines of religious background. Even if/when people leave the confines of religion, the subconscious thought remains. I believe that we think linearly because our religion teaches us that things begin and end. They think cyclically because their religion teaches them that things begin and end and then begin again and end again.

COMMENT #3: Hi Martin, I appreciate the work you do and making your blog available for free. I thought you might like to know that Canada is also moving toward a cashless society. Yesterday I went into Scotia Bank and tried to buy foreign currency. I offered them cash and they refused it. They told me that the money had to be paid by cash transfer. Because I didn’t have an account with them I could not buy the foreign currency. The Canadian banking system is primitive compared to New Zealand and Australian banks where I have also lived. Another bank would not allow me transfer money online from my own bank to a relative’s bank account at their bank. I would have to personally go into...

Hitler defeated Lenin, Chiang defeated Mao "IndyWatch Feed National"

It is a commonplace that the victors write history. But which victors? The victors that are claimed to write history are normally taken to be those who win wars and other conflicts. But just because one side wins a war or conflict, it does not follow that its ideas triumph in the longer term.

Consider contemporary China. Mao Zedong defeated Chiang Kai-shek in their epic decades-long conflict, driving him and his Kuomintang forces to exile in Taiwan. Now, look at contemporary China–is it closer to Mao’s vision or Chiang’s?

Obviously Chiang’s. As a wit observed, the story of post-1979 politics in both “Chinas” (the People’s Republic and Taiwan) is the Communist Party of China trying to become the Kuomintang and the Kuomintang trying to become the Democratic Progressive Party. Mao may have won the military struggle, but Chiang’s vision won the wider social war. It turns out that social reality is not entirely plastic to our visions, and Chiang’s proved to be more human and achievable than Mao’s. That matters, in the end.

Lenin‘s successor Stalin, with huge help from the Anglo-Americans (who provided trucks, rolling stock, canned food, and munitions crucial to the Red Army while their bombing campaign diverted the Luftwaffe and many thousands of tank-killer 88mm guns from the Eastern Front), defeated Hitler on the Eastern Front. But consider contemporary postmodern identity progressivism (PIP), with its concern for authenticity, identity, emotion over reason, environment, obsessions with the Jewish state, dismissive treatment of workers and belief that a sufficiently interventionist state does not have to own firms to control them: whose obsessions does it better reflect, Hit...

My Leonard Cohen "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

‘My Leonard Cohen’ was the toast of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, with sold-out shows and rave reviews from critics and fans alike. The show returns to Sydney at the Sydney Opera House, Playhouse from Monday February 6 2017.

Performed by Stewart D’Arrietta and a six-piece band, featuring some of Australia’s best rock musicians. D’Arrietta’s musical interpretations are gutsy and arresting and the stories he tells give an insight into Cohen’s life and the motivations behind the songs with a sprinkling of laconic humour. In MY LEONARD COHEN, Stewart and his band perform 18 songs including the heartrending Suzanne. The iconic Tower of Song, the seductive I’m Your Man the rousing Hallelujah, Dance Me To The End of Love, Bird on A Wire, “So Long Marianne” plus many more.

Few bodies of musical work rouse, seduce and are of such great solace as that of the great singer songwriter Leonard Cohen. Soulful lyrics are laced with raw emotion and sheer seductiveness. D’Arrietta’s arrangements add an uplifting, upbeat feel.

Producer, Harley Medcalf added “Seeing the raw emotion in Stewart from Mr. Cohen’s passing, and knowing how he deeply loves this music, I felt driven to ask Stewart to perform this very special tribute at the Opera House”

For two decades, Stewart D’Arrietta and his collaborators have brought their own musical personality to the works of great songwriters, including Tom Waits, John Lennon and Randy Newman, and have received praise for shows in Australia and overseas.

D’Arrietta on piano and vocals is accompanied by a veritable ‘who’s who’ of Australia’s best rock musicians.

Expect Cohen’s best – all delivered as you’ve never heard them before.

There have been multiple stories in the area of Extraterrestrials and Ufology. On January 5th, The Huffington Post reported on a 9 minute video released by the Chilean Navy purported to be an official UFO sighting, with this even reaching the trending page on Facebook. Then, on January 4th through 6th, the BBC, CNN, and again the Huffington Post all simultaneously release a story on a "fast, strange, mysterious" radio burst detected by astronomers in Australia who have gotten 20 puzzling bursts over the past 10 years, emanating from a galaxy 2.5 billion light years away.

The Chilean government also released footage from a UFO captured by the Navy.

The Solution to Exposing Gov’t Child Trafficking and Pizzagate As the Fraud It Is "IndyWatch Feed National"

Since the real foundation of these absurd allegations started with the fraud of Franklin Credit in Omaha, Ne in the 80’s- which was what caused the the horrible witch hunt that ensued as a result- until it was completely debunked as the hysteria based on falsehoods that is was- there is no better person to represent the facts of this than the VERY person who did so then- Col. Michael Aquino- Founder of Temple of Set, government official- and the one MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE as to what occurred back then.

He WAS the “unofficial” spokesperson for False Memory Syndrome Foundation- and was all OVER every media outlet at the time, and since he is the ONLY ONE left of that group- I believe that it just make sense that such a distinguished and educated government official- ranking as he does, who was THERE and fought it so well- should represent the accused and defend them against these allegations as he did before when it occurred the first time.

Now, since Ted Gunderson is dead, and John DeCamp doesn’t even know who he is anymore as he is suffering from Alzheimer’s- I believe that I- David Shurter- should represent the other side. I was there- I have an established reputation with MANY people as being an expert on the situation- and I would be willing to represent that side that Mr. Aquino did such a marvelous job defeating in the 80’s,

However- I have some stipulations.

One- it will be PUBLIC- and FACE TO FACE- just as he was willing to do with Ted Gunderson many years ago. I have absolutely NO history of violence- and so claiming he is afraid of me in public can’t really be argued effectively, although he can have as much protection as he deems necessary.

And two- it will be videotaped. This just makes sense- since we are doing this to resolve this insane issue that is so similar to the “satanic panic” hysteria that enveloped this country back in the 80’s- and so this is important for the PEOPLE to see as well as just a select group.

I think to put this country at ease- we must rise- as good American’s, and try to put this matter to rest- and the oaths that Col. Aquino took to protect and honor America I believe should compel him to agree.

We owe it to our country to do this- so that we can put our fellow American’s at ease and assure them that their children are safe. After all- this IS the land we all love and we ARE Americans after all.

The Pitfalls of Partial Disclosure - Examining the Process of Disclosure and the Reasons why a String of Half-Truths Just Won't Cut It

By Jordan Sather

Only thirteen days into 2017, and there have been many breaking stories presented by the mainstream media that suggest grand changes are taking place behind the scenes. The truth that has been withheld and obfuscated for so long seems to be coming to light.

There have been multiple stories in the area of Extraterrestrials and Ufology. On January 5th, The Huffington Post reported on a 9 minute video released by the Chilean Navy purported to be an official UFO sighting, with this even reaching the trending page on Facebook.

Melanie Shaw and the UK Child Abuse Shit "IndyWatch Feed National"

Melanie Shaw, in a secret court hearing, was given two more years in jail. So if you fuck children in the UK- you are protected and given ZERO jail time. But if you make the mistake of trying to protect children- it is off to jail you go. And more than that- into solitary confinement.

And what do the people do? They sit back- entertained. And expect Heaven to serve them cake and ice cream for their efforts.

Yeah- the world- and ESP. The people in it- SUCK. Although I am sure if you ask any of them- they would argue the point.

Byron Bay Surf Festival 2017 to Host the Next McTavish Trim "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

The Byron Bay Surf Festival is stoked to announce it will host the second edition of the McTavish Trim.

The McTavish Trim – Furthest Up The Beach, is a unique surfing event whereby the longest distance surfed is the goal for each of the 12 invited trimmers. Surfboards must be over 10 feet in length, requiring a significant amount of skill and panache to surf.

The event will take place during the always popular freestyle & stoke surf sessions, on the Sunday of the festival, which could not be better this year with the unique addition of the Trim. On this stoke-filled day you’ll also enjoy the classic surf sessions which this year includes, torpedoes (bodysurfing), finless (timber, surfmat or softboards), fish, logs, mermaids (gals only), Tandem and the partywave!

unnamed-1

These sessions are non-competitive and are more or less based on artistic interpretation with a decided peer vote for which waverider showed the most pure stoke and freestyling fun on any particular wave during each of the sessions.

Also included on this day is the hunters & collectors show and demo…a mix of modern, collectable, handmade, art-driven and sustainably produced surf craft on show for demo or swapping, from Australian, Japanese, Californian and Hawaiian shapers.

Bring your kids, friends and your board and come enjoy surfing, trimming, live music and so much more at the freestyle & stoke on Sunday 26th of February at Wategos!

The link between creative problem solving and finding hidden pictures "IndyWatch Feed National"

Information analysis, followed by step-by-step logical deduction is often our go-to method to solve problems we encounter in life. Yet, for some problems we seem to suddenly gain insight - we realize the solution in an "Aha!" kind of moment. Known as 'insight problems', they can seem impossible or unsolvable until creative insight appears and a solution is unexpectedly realized. Is it possible to increase the likelihood of the arrival of such creative insight? PhD candidate Ruben Laukkonen along with Dr. Jason Tangen at the University of Queensland in Australia, have recently published a study in the journal Consciousness and Cognition suggesting that it is. "We might be taking a walk, riding a bike, or having a shower, when we finally understand something we've been struggling with. One goal of this study, and ongoing research, is to understand what it is about those situations that evoke epiphanies," Laukkonen says.

Teenage surfer stable following shark attack at Ballina, Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

A teenage surfer was in stable condition after he was bitten by a shark Monday at the same Australian beach where a Japanese surfer was fatally mauled last year, officials said. Cooper Allen, a 17-year-old high school student, was surfing with friends on the first day of the students' spring vacation when he was attacked off Ballina's Lighthouse Beach at midmorning, Ballina Mayor David Wright said. The shark struck from behind and bit across the board's fins as the boy lay on the board paddling. The shark's lower jaw tore into the fiberglass as its upper teeth clamped his right hip and thigh, Wright said. "The shark lacerated his leg in three or four places fairly deep," Wright said. "Luckily the lifeguards were on duty and got down there quickly."

Syria and the US: More Truths Emerge "IndyWatch Feed National"

8634434On 17 September 2016 aircraft of the so-called ‘coalition’, led by the United States, bombed Syrian Army troop positions at Deir Ez-Zor. Aircraft from the United States, United Kingdom, Denmark and Australia took part in the attack. Between 62 and 90 (reports vary) Syrian troops were killed and more than 100 injured. The attack allowed ISIS forces to take control of what was a vital area protecting the airport.

At the time, the attack was labeled a “mistake”. Australia’s Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull apologized, saying he regretted the loss of life and injury to Syrian personnel.

A spokesman for the Syrian government said that the attack was “intentional”, a view shared by Syria’s ally, Iran. The US military ordered an inquiry into the incident. It is usually the case with such inquiries that little is done, nothing other than “regrettable mistakes” are admitted, and no-one is sanctioned.

Often, some reason is found to attribute the “error” to the enemy’s actions, as with the bombing of the Kunduz Hospital in Afghanistan.

Two recent developments however, cast some new light on that “mistake” in September 2016.

The first is the release of the report into the investigation by the US Central Command based in Qatar on 29 November 2016. As is almost invariably the case, the report found “no evidence of misconduct.”

The report did acknowledge however, that the US did mislead the Russian military command about where the strike was to occur.

Further, the report acknowledges that the US Command ignored both actual information and intelligence analysis that the positions targeted were occupied by Syrian government troops and were not ISIS terrorists.

The third revelation was that the air strikes shifted from the strategy of “deliberate targeting” to one of an “immediate strike.” This violated usual US Air Force operational procedure. No explanation was given for this violation of normal procedure.

The fact that the Russians were misled, the ignoring of their own intelligence and factual information, both electronic and human, and the abrupt change in operational procedure without a good reason, all reinforce the conclusion reached at the...

Red and grey squirrels in Britain "IndyWatch Feed National"

This is an Eurasian red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) video from Germany.

By Peter Frost in Britain:

The battle of the squirrels

Friday 13th January 2017

PETER FROST’S affection for the native British red squirrel sends him in search of measures that would boost its survival chances

There were once three and a half million of our native red squirrels (Sciurus vulgaris) in the forests and woodlands of Britain.

Today that population is down to well under 150,000 and although still reducing dramatically a number of initiatives are reducing the rate of decline.

What happened? Well, in 1876 some stupid aristocrat decided to import grey squirrels (Scirius caroliniensis) from their native North America releasing them in Henbury Park, Cheshire.

It’s not clear why they were introduced, probably as a live novelty garden decoration. Rich Victorian land owners simply had no idea about the risks of introducing non-native species to their estates.

Other landowners in other parts of Britain also imported the greys which spread rapidly. There are now estimated to be about 2.5 million grey squirrels in Britain.

Unlike the bold and oft seen greys our native red squirrels are very shy and elusive and spend much of their time in the tree canopy. Telltale signs to look for include large dreys in trees, scratch marks on bark and chewed pine cones that look like chewed apple cores. You might also hear the distinctive “chuk chuk” noise they make.

Although the grey squirrels don’t actually attack the native reds they carry the squirrel pox virus which is fatal to red squirrels without harming its grey carriers. Squirrels come in all colours.

Entirely black ones are becoming common and originate in colder regions of Canada where their dark skins absorb more winter sun to keep them warm.

Lennon: Through A Glass Onion "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Lennon – Through A Glass Onion returns to Sydney to celebrate 25 years on the international stage. The music, the mystery and the memory of John Lennon, starring John Waters and Stewart D’Arrietta.

It’s been 25 years since John Waters and Stewart D’Arrieta first performed “Through A Glass Onion” on the small stage at Sydney’s Tilbury Hotel. Little did they know that over an inspiring 25 year journey they would perform the show in New York and London, leaving their mark on audiences around the world.

12569_show_landscape_large_01

Created and performed by renowned Australian actor/musician John Waters and esteemed singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, Lennon – Through a Glass Onion is part concert and part biography and reveals the essence of the life and astonishing talent of one of the most admired icons of the past century. It’s a compelling story and features 31 iconic hits of Lennon and his collaborations with McCartney including Imagine, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution, Woman, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, Working Class Hero, and Jealous Guy.

The ultimate goal for John and Stewart was to take their show to New York one day – and they achieved this in 2015.  “It was truly an emotional experience seeing Lennon – Through a Glass Onion in New York at its American premiere,” said lead producer Harley Medcalf.

Rally rider hopeful for 2018 Dakar "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Queensland rally rider Scott Britnell has been watching the Dakar Rally on TV while recovering from a crash six months ago that also crashed his hopes of competing in this year’s event.

However, Scott Britnell is still planning to join the gruelling rally next January and is busy raising funds with his KTM 450RR race bike arriving soon.

“I have been watching Dakar and it seems like this year’s edition is a cracker,” he says.

“It seems the complaints about the WRC-style first half of last year’s race have been answered by Marc Coma.”

He says it was disappointing that Australia’s first Dakar winner, Toby Price, crashed out on stage four. 

“I see it as a simple case of paying dues for living life on the edge as many of the top guns have in the past,” he says.

“This is a perception that I also carried into combat many times and have leant on to accept a far greater sacrifice made by several friends/colleagues along the way.”

Fellow Queensland Rod Faggotter also retired from the event on stage four with technical problems in his Yamaha.

Meanwhile, after two stages were abandoned because of rain and mudslides, the two remaining Aussies are battling on.

Council to consider the Wallaby Scrub Road closure at the February meeting. "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Once again Rio Tinto makes a move to close the Wallaby Scrub Road and to expand their open cut Warkworth coal mine towards the village of Bulga, reports Singleton Argus today:
Council confirms they will consider Rio Tinto’s new application to close Wallaby Scrub Road at their February meeting: 2017

Singleton Council’s Manager Executive Projects, Gary Thomson, says they recently received a formal application to close Wallaby Scrub Road from Rio Tinto.

“Council is currently considering the application as required by the Roads Act, and a report will be prepared for Council’s meeting in February,” he explains.

 

Local residents supported by many users of the historic Wallaby Scrub Road staged a three-month long vigil in protest against the Rio Tinto plans to close the road. They are not convinced by the weasel words of the Rio’s spokesman:

“MTW is committed to working with the community, Bulga residents, Singleton Council and the NSW Government to ensure a strong future for the village and for the mine and the economic benefits it generates.”

It is pretty hard to see any future for Bulga next to an expanding giant dusty hole that will eventually morph into a toxic final void.
