Police have charged a man after a pursuit in Casino on Thursday (February 9).
Officers spotted a wanted man in a silver Holden Commodore while patrolling West Street, Casino, at about 10.30pm.
When the driver failed to respond to police indications to stop, a pursuit ensued.
It was terminated due to the mans dangerous driving but, a short time later, police found the Commodore abandoned on Arthur Street.
A 25-year-old man was arrested in a house nearby and taken to Casino Police Station, where he was charged with not stopping during a police pursuit, car theft, unlicensed driving and resisting arrest.
The man was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on Friday (February 10).

This week in the Australian parliament Senator Ludlum of the Greens raised the question of whether a tweet from president Trump could send us into war with our biggest trading partner China. While the question seems at first absurd and possibly even a satire, its not. Its a very serious question that deserves debate within Australia as it could have very severe consequences to not only our Australian economy but every Australians future.
The USA is in a very politically unstable position at the moment with many US citizens unhappy with some of the new presidents seemingly impulsive executive orders. One such order is the banning Muslims from seven countries from entering the USA without asking advice from his government departments as to what sort of problems this might cause to US citizens traveling abroad or anyone travelling to the USA for business or even a holiday.
This presidential order and tweets caused chaos at international airports and led to thousands of protesters at airports all over the USA. Even some of the international governments friendly to the USA criticised this action and some of the Muslim majority governments whose citizens were banned have reciprocated by banning US citizens. Fortunately for all the travelers affected, a US Federal Judge blocked the Presidents order until it could be examined in a court of law.
President Trump has also been co...

Traditional Owners resist industry push for amended
Native Title Act to secure Carmichael mine
Seek court order Monday to strike out Adanis fake land use agreement
Members of the Wangan and Jagalingou (W&J) Traditional
Owners Council will on Monday ask the Federal Court to knock out
Adanis claim that it has the consent of the W&J Traditional
Owners for its proposed Carmichael mine, calling it is a sham
agreement which Adani engineered through rent-a-crowds, dishonest
tactics and attempts to exclude their voices.
The W&J Council say any attempt by the Federal government to do the bidding of Adani and the mining industry to engineer an amendment to Native Title laws, will be vigorously challenged by them and other Traditional Owner groups and supporters.
Spokesperson for W&J Traditional Owner Council, Mr. Adrian Burragubba, says, The document Adani is trying to pass off as an Indigenous Land Use Agreement with our people is illegitimate. We launched action last year to defeat this dodgy deal and we are now taking decisive action in the Federal Court to have this fake agreement struck out. [Details of the legal action are set out below.]
We have already put evidence before the National Native Title Tribunal to prove that Adani does not have an agreement with the W&J Traditional Owners for its mine of mass destruction, which will destroy our ancestral homelands and waters, the cultural landscape and our heritage.
Adanis proposed land use agreement has always been a sham. Three times we have rejected any deal with the Indian mining conglomerate. Now Adani are on the back foot and have run crying to the Queensland Resources Council and the Federal Attorney General, asking them to do their bidding by pushing through an Adani amendment to the Native Title Act.
New chief of the Queensland Resources Council, former Federal Resources Minister Ian MacFarlane, boasted at a Townsville business breakfast last week that he has spoken to his good mates in Canberra about amending native title laws, in the wake of the Noongar decision in the Federal Court. This is just additional proof that the Turnbull government is in bed with the Indian billionaire Ga...

Islamic State terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, whose little son shocked the world by holding up the severed head of a soldier in a picture, has become the first Australian to be stripped of citizenship under the country's anti-terrorism laws, a report says. A spokeswoman for Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton told AAP that a person had been stripped of their Australian citizenship, while declining to name the individual, but the Australian newspaper has identified him as 35-year-old dual-national Sharrouf. Under a 2015 law, Australia may strip dual nationals of their citizenship if they have carried out terrorist acts or been members of a banned organization. Sharrouf, the son of Lebanese immigrants, went to fight for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria in 2013, a year after being released from prison for taking part in a terrorist plot. In 2014, horrifying photographs emerged on Twitter showing Sharrouf and his 7-year-old son holding up the chopped off heads of Syrian soldiers, with the caption "That's my boy!" In 2015, unconfirmed reports emerged claiming that Sharrouf had been killed in a drone strike in Mosul in northern Iraq, but he is still the subject of an active arrest warrant. Last year, Sharrouf's widow, Tara Nettleton, a mother-of-five who was living in Raqqa with four of her children and one grandchild, died in Syria, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

The relentless courage and dedication of the VAXXED group continues to expand the wave of vaccine danger awareness. More and more populations around the globe are going hungry, how is it that the grocery shelves in the US are always completely stocked? Where is all this food coming from? Dementia and Alzheimers mortality rates have gone exponential. The chemically engineered winter storms in the US continue in spite of record shattering high temperatures. The Arctic pushes 60 degrees above normal while being battered by a category 4 equivalant cyclone. Australia is suffering in a heat wave that experts have called horrifying. Locusts are devouring the food crops in Bolivias heartland, an official state of emergency has been declared. And there is Fukushima, every time it seems it cant get any worse, it does. Nearly 500 whales have beached themselves in New Zealand, is this heartbreaking tragedy the result of US/NATO/fossil fuel industry seismic activities in the region?
For many, the darker the horizon grows, the deeper their denial manifests. Each of us must struggle against such a tendency. We are not helpless, we are not without a voice, but we must choose to fully utilize it, no matter how ominous the gathering storm appears to be.
The suspended reality across the Pacific took hold as the Australian Foreign Minister, Julie Bishop, conversed with her Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, in a state of mild delusion. Assuming the air of a clairvoyant, Bishop insisted that she knew that the United States would not repudiate its own free trade agreement with Australia. Knowledge, however, soon changed to disbelief. "I can't believe it," she is reported to have said. "I don't take it credibly." Surely, the United States would not withdraw from the Australian-US free trade agreement, its own brainchild and inspiration. The trade balance favoured the US in any case. The paternal figure would eventually make sense, and step back from the precipice of madness. Observers should have immediately noted the perverse scenario. Australia had been shown up by the agreement to be distinctly outplayed and outdone in its trade with the US. (Some states simply have a freer regime than others.)

Here are the answers with discussion for this Weekends
Quiz. The information provided should help you work out
why you missed a question or three! If you havent 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
National accounting rules dictate that a national government surplus equals a non-government deficit (and vice-versa). If a national government successfully achieves a fiscal surplus through an austerity program then the private domestic sector must be spending more than it is earning.
The answer is False.
The point is that the non-government sector is not equivalent to the private domestic sector and to fully assess what is going on we have to include the impact of the external sector.
This is a question about the sectoral balances the government fiscal balance, the external balance and the private domestic balance that have to always add to zero because they are derived as an accounting identity from the national accounts. The balances reflect the underlying economic behaviour in each sector which is interdependent given this is a macroeconomic system we are considering.
To refresh your memory the sectoral balances are derived as follows. The basic income-expenditure model in macroeconomics can be viewed in (at least) two ways: (a) from the perspective of the sources of spending; and (b) from the perspective of the uses of the income produced. Bringing these two perspectives (of the same thing) together generates the sectoral balances.
From the sources perspective we write:
GDP = C + I + G + (X M)
which says that total national income (GDP) is the sum of total final consumption spending (C), total private investment (I), total government spending (G) and net exports (X M).
Expression (1) tells us that total income in the economy per period will be exactly equal to total spending from all sources of expenditure.
We also have to acknowledge that financial balances of the sectors are impacted by net government taxes (T) which includes all taxes and transfer and interest payments (the latter are not counted independently in the expenditure Expression (1)).
Further, as noted above the trade account is only one aspect of the financial flows between the domestic economy and the external sector. we have to include net external income flows (FNI).
Adding in the net external income....
The Donald Trump administration and the Brexit severance of ties between the United Kingdom and the European Union have, in a matter of a little over a half year, changed the world from a post-Cold War new world order based on American supremacy to a global disorder of altered alliances on a multipolar geo-political chessboard. In many respects, the new global disorder has also placed in jeopardy various post-World War II contrivances, including NATO, the Organization of American States (OAS), and the Australia-New Zealand-United States (ANZUS) alliance.

A dolphin has been trapped in a filthy tank for over two years after being stolen from the ocean and her family in an annual dolphin hunt. The dolphins name is Angel and she is currently being kept in captivity in a museum in Japan. The Taiji Whale Museum is known for keeping dolphins that have been caught in Taijis annual hunt and is just around the corner from the Cove where this takes place.
The dolphin, who is believed to be an albino dolphin, swims around with her eyes closed most of the time, which reports have suggested is due to the excessive amount of chlorine in her tank, according to a report by The Dodo. Visitors to the museum have even commented on the overpowering smell of chlorine as visitors walk through the buildings. Despite the amount of harmful chemicals being used, the tank is filthy, with photos and video footage showing Angel swimming around in brown, murky water with her eyes tightly shut.
Angel shares the tank with five other dolphins who were also snatched away from their mothers when they were young, during the dolphin hunt. Angel has gone from a life of freedom in the ocean with her mother, to one of cruelty in captivity where she has nothing to do all day but swim around in circles. The tank that Angel is kept in also has a plastic tube running through it which is a walkway for visitors to the museum. The tube, which allows visitors to walk through the tank, has made Angels home even smaller, with less space for her to move around in. In the wild, Angel may have swum around 100 kilometers (62 miles) each day, but now all she can do is swim in circles in the cramped tank, trying not to hit the edges and hurt herself.
Graham Henry, the campaign coordinator for Sea Shepherd said, Angel and the dolphins in the same tank are in some of the worst conditions Ive ever seen for captive dolphins. Young dolphins that are deemed pretty enough are captured during the annual hunt whilst the remaining dolphins that did not make the cut into captivity are killed for their meat. From there they can be sold for over $100,000. The young dolphins are already seriously troubled when they are br...
A new report released by the Humane Society International (HSI) finds that trophy hunters are grossly overstating the economic benefits of big game hunting in Africa. HSI timed the release of the report to coincide with the start of Safari Club Internationals (SCI) annual convention in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 1. US-based SCI, one of the worlds largest trophy hunting advocacy organizations, released a report in 2015 that claimed trophy hunting-related tourism contributes $426 million annually to the economies of eight African countries and creates more than 53,400 full- and part-time jobs. But the HSI report, prepared by Melbourne, Australia-based consultancy Economists At Large, found that SCI had grossly overstated the contribution of big game hunting to eight African economies and that overall tourism in Africa dwarfs trophy hunting as a source of revenue, according to a statement. In the eight countries studied for both reports Botswana, Ethiopia, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe tourism is responsible for 2.8 to 5.1 percent of GDP, according to the HSI report. Trophy hunting is responsible for less than $132 million not $426 million, as SCI's report claimed of the $17 billion spent on tourism in those countries every year, or just 0.78 percent of total tourism spending, the HSI reports author, economist Cameron Murray, adds. Thats an estimated 0.03 percent of GDP for those eight countries. In terms of the wider tourism economy, which relies heavily on wildlife resources, trophy hunting is relatively insignificant, Murray

PMID: Int J Hyperthermia. 2015 ;31(6):643-8. Epub 2015 Jul 9. PMID: 26156211 Abstract Title: Efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy combined with mild hyperthermia for improving the anti-tumour effects of carboplatin. Abstract: PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) on the enhancement of hyperthermic chemosensitisation to carboplatin at mild temperatures in experimental tumours.METHODS: SCCVII carcinoma in C3H/He mice was used to assess tumour growth delay. The mice received intraperitoneal injections of carboplatin. For HBO treatment, the mice were exposed to HBO at 2.0 atmospheres of absolute oxygen for 60min. For mild hyperthermia (HT), treatment at 41.5C for 30min was performed. The tumour tissue pO2 levels were measured with a digital pO2 monitor during and immediately after treatment.RESULTS: The average time taken to reach a threefold relative tumour size was significantly longer after treatment with carboplatin combined with mild HT and HBO than after treatment with carboplatin and mild HT. The relative sizes of the tumours after the combined treatment were smallest when the treatment sequence was carboplatin, mild HT, and HBO. The tumour tissue pO2 values were significantly higher immediately after mild HT followed by HBO than immediately after HBO followed by mild HT. The tumour tissue pO2 levels during mild HT and HBO generally increased, although the patterns of the increases varied.CONCLUSION: The administration of HBO increased the effects of hyperthermic chemosensitisation to carboplatin at mild temperatures on experimental tumours, particularly when given in the sequence of carboplatin, mild HT, and HBO, a finding that supports previous clinical outcomes for a novel combined therapy using carboplatin plus HT and HBO.

The ascension of Donald Trump to the US Presidency has introduced an additional element of uncertainty to the conduct of world affairs. Judging from Mr Trump's rhetoric, and some of his initial executive orders, such as withdrawing the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the proverbial cat has been set among the geopolitical pigeons. The Australian government appears to have been completely unprepared for the Trump Presidency, and even less so by his decision to scrap American participation in the TPP. The political response has been one of denial, insisting that the TPP could proceed, and even more extraordinarily, suggesting that China and Indonesia could take the place of the departed Americans. This displays a degree of naivety that is a matter of concern. Even more concerning is that according to Opposition Trade spokesman Jason Clare following two FOI requests, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had not been asked to model alternative scenarios in the event the TPP fell over for whatever reason.

Officials in the White House are looking into leaks about President Donald Trump's phone calls with foreign heads of state, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling them "very concerning." "We're looking into the situation, yes, and it's very concerning," White House press secretary Sean Spicer said on Thursday as quoted by the Hill. Spicer stressed that the way parts of the information are being revealed "is clearly a breach of a lot of protocols and laws." The spokesperson noted that Trump is worried by the leaks, adding that "the idea that you can't have a conversation without that information getting out is concerning," Spicer said. He declined to elaborate on the nature of the investigation. Details of Trump's phone calls with Putin and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull have been leaked in recent days, alongside portions of the conversations with the heads of Mexico and France.
Hoaxtead is ONCE AGAIN bitching about fake news- blaming IT for everyone talking about all of this child trafficking and child rapes, but 90% of our media is owned by SIX CORPORATIONS- owned by the VERY PEOPLE who are FIGHTING these allegations.
So, in other words, ALL OF THE FAKE NEWS COMES FROM THEM.
AND ALWAYS HAS
What they are REALLY bitching about is that the internet has changed EVERYTHING- and now NO ONE is dependent on them for their news.
THAT is why the are upset
And as far as this hysteria that came about in the 80s- since we all have irrefutable proof that the UK covered up THE ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THEM- exactly HOW is this related to some people reading a couple of books?
Cause I am SO NOT getting the connection

My youngest celebrated her seventh birthday recently and with
Summer in full swing, she requested a Fruiti Tutti. Both girls were
excited to help organise and decorate the party, and we had plenty
of bits and pieces that we could reuse from other events. The key
here was to have one large focal point to set the scene for the
party - in our case it was the honeycomb fruit decorations. Then it
was easy to just serve up as much fruit as the girls could eat!

Sydney composer Nigel Westerway, perhaps best known for having
written the score for the smash-hit film 'Babe', has composed an
oboe concerto after visiting Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage
Westerway's concerto is to be premiered by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra this month. (see link to story below)
Bob Brown, who took Westerway on a flight and cruise on Bathurst Harbour (with Par Avion Wilderness Flights) last year, says Westerway's work fulfils a prophesy of iconic Tasmanian photographer Olegas Truchanas. In the early 1970s, opposing the impending flooding of Lake Pedder, Truchanas forecast these wilds could spur creativity like that of the Scandinavian composers Grieg and Sibelius.
"With partner Paul, I will be off the wild west coast of Tasmania on a yacht trip from Strahan to Stanley when this premiere takes place. It is simply wonderful that, not for the first time, Tasmania's wilderness is stimulating great creativity for people to enjoy in the crowded cities of the world," Brown said.

The ascension of Donald Trump to the US Presidency has introduced an additional element of uncertainty to the conduct of world affairs. Judging from Mr Trumps rhetoric, and some of his initial executive orders, such as withdrawing the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), the proverbial cat has been set among the geopolitical pigeons.
The Australian government appears to have been completely unprepared for the Trump Presidency, and even less so by his decision to scrap American participation in the TPP. The political response has been one of denial, insisting that the TPP could proceed, and even more extraordinarily, suggesting that China and Indonesia could take the place of the departed Americans.
This displays a degree of naivety that is a matter of concern. Even more concerning is that according to Opposition Trade spokesman Jason Clare following two FOI requests, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade had not been asked to model alternative scenarios in the event the TPP fell over for whatever reason.
The TPP has consistently been presented as a trade agreement when manifestly that was not the case. Only 7 of its 29 chapters dealt with trade. Its underlying objectives, apart from benefiting the corporate world and reducing national sovereignty through such procedures as the investor state resolution procedures, was the maintenance of US hegemony in the Asia Pacific region.
The equivalent agreement for Europe, the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) was intended to fulfill the same function. It is significant that neither China nor Russia in the TPP and TTIP respectively were invited to participate in either scheme, although their geography, economic, military and political power makes their exclusion absurd, unless that exclusion is seen in a wider geopolitical context.
To understand that conceptual framework that led to the US led TPP and TTIP one has to go back to 1904. In that year, the Director of the London School of Economics, Sir Halford Mackinder gave a lengthy presentation to the Royal Geographical Society. In that seminal lecture Mackinder set out the framework of the future world.
At its centre was a unitary landmass that he described as the world island. The...
Rumours that AC/DCs Angus Young would be joining Guns N Roses on stage at their Sydney shows were confirmed tonight.
Following a tweet by Gunners bassist Duff McKagan that the band were greeted by Angus when they touched down in Sydney, the guitar god jumped onstage with the band at ANZ Stadium.
Angus joined Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan onstage for two tracks, including the AC/DC classic Whole Lotta Rosie, and Riff Raff, both from the bands Bon Scott era.
Angus is expected to do the same tomorrow night for the bands second show at ANZ Stadium.
Its not the first time Angus has joined Guns N Roses on stage; last April at Coachella he performed the same two AC/DC songs while on stage with the band.
With temperatures over 40C in parts of Sydney, it is now officially the hottest summer in the city's 158 year recorded history with 10 summer days over 35C. At Sydney Airport, temperatures reached 42.9C at 2.30pm today, and broke the previous record for the area set in 1980. And the worst heat could be still to come. Tomorrow, for the first time in the history of Sydney grade cricket, all matches have been called off due to the extreme heatwave. Cricket Australia and NSW doctor John Orchard pushed strongly for the unprecedented step to be taken, and NSW Cricket has advised all associations to follow suit and cancel junior and senior matches. Similarly at Royal Randwick, tomorrow's much-anticipated racing has been postponed until Monday. While residents have yet to be hit by power outages, locals in the inner west were given a short preview of what could occur if power shedding is necessary.
You will not concede me philosophical poetry, Ada Lovelace the worlds first computer programmer, maverick daughter of the poet Lord Byron wrote to her mother, a mathematician bent on eradicating the fathers poetical influences on the girl. Young Lovelace exhorted: Invert the order! Will you give me poetical philosophy, poetical science?
Two centuries later, the physicist, novelist, and essayist Alan Lightman MITs only professor with dual appointment in the sciences and the humanities, and one of the most enchanting writers of our time furnished the world with a masterwork at the intersection of poetical philosophy and poetical science in an epic poem exploring lifes largest questions, some answerable and some not: questions about existence and nonexistence, free will, the nature of time and reality, the paradox of nothingness, and the human search for meaning amid an indifferent universe.
Song of Two Worlds was published in 2009 as a small, enormous book, the lyrical profundity of which rippled across the globe. Five years later, Lightman received a letter from Ajai Narendran, a teacher at the Srishti School of Art, Design, and Technology in Bangalore, India a longtime fan of Lightmans, who had assigned the verse book to the students in his Conceptual Science in Art and Design class. One of them an 18-year-old boy named Derek Dominic Dsouza, a gifted self-taught artist had been so inspired by Lightmans book that he created a series of pen-and-ink drawings in response to the verses. Lightman was in turn so t...
