Can't live on the wage you bring home but can't get a raise from the boss? Here's the reasons why "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"


In 2016 an est. 3.89 million people living in New South Wales had a personal weekly income of between $0 and $644 per week, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

In Tasmania an est. 1.03 million people had way less than $573 per week.

Between March Quarter 2016 and March Quarter 2017 wages growth remained at a record lows.

So this should come as no surprise

The American Resistance has many faces and this is just one of them (10) "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"


New York Magazine, 3 July 2017:

Until late last month, former federal prosecutor Hui Chen worked in the Justice Departments fraud section, ensuring that corporations followed federal ethics laws. She started the job in the fall 2015, but in the last six months it became impossible to conduct her duties without feeling as if she was shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic, she recently wrote on LinkedIn. So she quit, and she blames the White House:

First, trying to hold companies to standards that our current administration is not living up to was creating a cognitive dissonance that I could not overcome. To sit across the table from companies and question how committed they were to ethics and compliance felt not only hypocritical, but very much like shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. Even as I engaged in those questioning and evaluations, on my mind were the numerous lawsuits pending against the President of the United States for everything from violations of the Constitution to conflict of interest, the ongoing investigations of potentially treasonous conducts, and the investigators and prosecutors fired for their pursuits of principles and facts. Those are conducts I would not tolerate seeing in a company, yet I worked under an administration that engaged in exactly those conduct. I wanted no more part in it.

As a compliance expert in DOJs fraud section, Chen essentially served as a corporate crime watchdog. She helped ensure that companies made changes to the policies that resulted in their prosecution and then monitored the effectiveness of those changes.

Little surprise, then, that the Trumps...

John Pilger On Why Palestine Is Still The Issue "IndyWatch Feed National"

Almost six decades on, theres an enduring silence by those in the halls of power and in the media on Palestine, writes John Pilger.

When I first went to Palestine as a young reporter in the 1960s, I stayed on a kibbutz. The people I met were hard-working, spirited and called themselves socialists. I liked them.

One evening at dinner, I asked about the silhouettes of people in the far distance, beyond our perimeter.

Arabs, they said, nomads. The words were almost spat out. Israel, they said, meaning Palestine, had been mostly wasteland and one of the great feats of the Zionist enterprise was to turn the desert green.

They gave as an example their crop of Jaffa oranges, which was exported to the rest of the world. What a triumph against the odds of nature and humanitys neglect.

It was the first lie. Most of the orange groves and vineyards belonged to Palestinians who had been tilling the soil and exporting oranges and grapes to Europe since the eighteenth century. The former Palestinian town of Jaffa was known by its previous inhabitants as the place of sad oranges.

One of the many orange orchards seized from Palestinians in Jaffa. (IMAGE: gnuckx, Flickr)One of the many orange orchards seized from Palestinians in Jaffa. (IMAGE: gnuckx, Flickr)

On the kibbutz, the word Palestinian was never used. Why, I asked. The answer was a troubled silence.

All over the colonised world, the true sovereignty of indigenous people is feared by those who can never quite cover the fact, and the crime, that they live on stolen land.

Denying peoples humanity is the next step as the Jewish people know only too well. Defiling peoples dignity and culture and pride follows as logically as violence.

In Ramallah, following an invasion of the West Bank by the late Ariel Sharon in 2002, I walked through streets of crushed cars and demolished houses, to the Palestinian Cultural Centre. Until that morning, Israeli soldiers had camped there.

I was met by the centres director, the novelist, Liana Badr, whose original manuscripts lay scattered and torn across the floor. The hard drive containing her fiction, and a library of plays and poetry had been taken by Israeli soldiers. Almost everything was smashed, and defiled.

Steven Olivers Poem On Aussie Racism Headed For 2 Million Views "IndyWatch Feed National"

A poem by Aboriginal writer and performer Steven Oliver which confronts Australian racism, hypocrisy, fragility and privilege has climbed to almost two million views on Facebook.

Oliver performed Real two years ago at the 2015 National NAIDOC Awards ceremony in Adelaide. The event was broadcast by National Indigenous Television (NITV), and the footage was shared on their Facebook page. Its been growing a fan-base ever since.

Oliver wrote Real in response to a discussion this country was having about who had the right to call themselves Aboriginal, yet most of those people had no connection to Aboriginality apart from their racist views.

We cant embed Facebook videos on new Matilda bug in the system but you can watch the same performance from Oliver below, on Youtube.

The Situation in Syria Just Became More Dangerous "IndyWatch Feed National"

563334The military situation in Syria took a significant step for the worse on 19 June 2017 when an American fighter jet shot down a Syrian fighter jet carrying out operations against ISIS. That was the latest in a series of foolhardy moves by the Americans which have included the bombing of Syrian army forces in south eastern Syria causing more than 100 casualties, and the shooting down of an Iranian drone in the same region.

The Russian Defence Ministry immediately announced it was suspending cooperation with US forces, and that henceforth all kinds of airborne vehicles, including aircraft and UAVs of the international coalition detected to the west of the Euphrates River will be tracked by the Russian SAM systems as air targets.. The obvious inference is that they will at risk of being shot down. David Wroe, defence correspondent for the Fairfax media wrote (SMH 21 June 2017) that the shoot down triggered a belligerent response from Russia. His article was entitled RAAF halts air strikes after Russian threat.

As is almost invariably the case with Australian reporting of the Syrian war, inappropriate language and a failure to report accurately on the issues is more often than not the case. Wroes article and other western media reports of the American action and the Russian response illustrate the point.

US General Joseph Dunford referred to the incident as justified under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force, (AUMF) a resolution passed in 2001 following the 9/11 events in Washington and New York of that year.

Dunford also used the term collective self defence of partnered forces. That neither the AUMF nor the term collective self-defence are remotely applicable to the war in Syria is never discussed in the Australian media. Their default position appears to be that if the Americans claim it, then it must be correct. There is similarly no discussion at all as to the right of the Americans or their coalition allies, including Australia, to even establish a base on Syrian soil.

The collective self defence justification was also used by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop when she was asked on ABC National Radio in late 2015 to explain the legal basis for Australias announced intention of intervening in the Syrian war. Her answer then was identical to that of Dunford. Neither of them was correct.

Meteor fireball explodes over South Australia (VIDEOS) "IndyWatch Feed National"

Six days after a suspected meteor shook Streaky Bay and very briefly lit up parts of South Australia's night sky, the event remains the talk of the town. CCTV images of the spectacle show a bright light in the sky, lasting a couple of seconds, just before midnight on Friday, with locals reporting a thunder-like rumble a few minutes later. Those lucky enough to have witnessed the event have described an "orange fireball" which could be seen from across the West Coast and Eyre Peninsula and as far afield as Elliston, Port Lincoln, Whyalla, Riverton and even Mount Barker, near Adelaide.

Lone Goat Gallery presents Emily Imeson "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

19702091_1415425051867680_544358174380484955_nEmilys 2nd solo exhibition, Experienced Landscapes is the result of a painting led inquiry that investigates the diversity of environments around regional NSW, and involved journeying to Tenterfield, Tamworth, Hill End, Bathurst, and Nymboida.

Emily is the recipient of an Arts NSW Young Regional Artist Scholarship, enabling her to explore regional NSW landscapes and connect with established artists and art foundations. Experienced Landscapes presents the current stage of Emilys ongoing investigation and project of professional development. Emily will continue her research and travels throughout NSW until mid-2018.

Emily has grown up in and around regional areas of NSW. From rural Orange, Emily moved to Tamworth for primary school, and began high school in Lismore, Northern NSW.

Growing up in regional NSW I have developed a deep appreciation for Australias great outdoors and am intrigued by nature. I am determined to mature these values into a comprehensive understanding of the natural world, articulated with brush marks and colours.

Utilising both en plein air painting techniques and studio work, Emilys arts practice documents her experience of being in the world.
 

Methods of embodiment, observations, and documentation, have created endless inspiration and guide new ways to re-connect with the land. Spending time in one place allows a truth to reveal itself; textures, colours, flora, and fauna are uncovered. Understanding these elements in multiple landscapes has allowed me to create and share a contemporary archive of regional NSW.

The project aims to develop images that pushed beyond the desire to create a visual sameness, encouraging a confidence to trust idiosyncratic mark making. I recreate and redefine the landscape as perceived by engagement, these paintings search to describe Australian geographical identities, and the c...

It is the third theft of a motorbike or motorbike equipment in the area in the last 10 days.

The orange and black KTM 300cc motorbike was stolen from a shed at a house in Chigwell sometime between 1am and 10am on Monday.

In the last 10 days a red Honda CRF450 motorcycle was stolen from a shed in Claremont and a motorcycle helmet, gloves, knee guards, armour and boots stolen from a shed in Berriedale.

Australia Bureau of Meteorology hides record cold temperature data "IndyWatch Feed National"

New record cold temperature set in Goulburn Airport in Australia, @ -10.4C which broke the all time record, but magically the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) changed it to -10.0C so the old record was not broken. Confronted by Jo Nova and Jennifer Marohasy the BOM acknowledged the "error" and left the entry blank. They didn't update until the blogosphere erupted. What then came to light was the the BOM was entering high "low temperature values" so even if a new record was broken it didn't register past a certain point on the lows, but the highs are set unlimited. So there is an obvious agenda of temperature manipulation. Setting code so record lows don't fit the histogram and register as record lows. That's pure fraud, then the handling of the affair after it came to the public awareness was unprofessional to say the least. You are being tricked with computer programs to dis-allow record cold so we are not getting the full picture of temperatures in Australia.

Prof Justin O'Connor describes the elephant in "Smart Cities vs Creative Cities Symposium" "IndyWatch Feed National"

[Illustration from screen print of Prof Justin O'Connor's slide presentation.]The population and development behemoth is so multi-faceted that many of us feel like blind people trying to describe an elephant. Far richer than the bewildering 'policy porn' we are constantly subjected to by planners and growth merchants, the videos from this wonderful symposium provide vital clues to how we have been ambushed and sidelined by the nightmarish infrastructure juggernaut. "The Creative City attempts to mobilise culture and creativity for city branding, urban regeneration and cultural industries growth, which also point to new forms of urban planning and governance. It has been closely associated with the creative class and the creative- entrepreneurial city in ways that have frequently become divisive and exclusionary, focusing on arts flagships, photogenic CBDs, and real estate profits. So too, cultural production has been reformatted under the rubric of the creative industries in ways that foreground their contribution to economic growth. Increasingly calls have been for social justice, citizenship and the rights to the city, with a return of community and activist-focused arts activities, as well as new forms of post-capitalist production communities."

Peer Reviewed: Science Losing Credibility As Large Amounts Of Research Shown To Be False "IndyWatch Feed National"

corporate-630x500Arjun Walia

Science today, in all fields, is plagued by corruption. Yet, more often than not, attempts to create awareness about scientific fraud  an issue that few journalists have been willing to address are met with the response, Well, is it peer-reviewed?

Although good science should always be reviewed, using this label as a form of credibility can be dangerous, causing people to dismiss new information and research instantaneously if it doesnt have  it, particularly when that information counters long-held beliefs ingrained into human consciousness via mass marketing, education, and more.

Unfortunately, its becoming increasingly apparent that we are being lied to about the products and medicines we use on a daily basis.

If youre one who commonly points to the peer-reviewed label, then you should know that there are many researchers and insiders who have been creating awareness about the problem with this label for years.

Who Says So? And From What Fields?

  • Climate Science

Many people have spoken up against the corporatization and politicization of science. For example, Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a Swedish climatologist and former director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, has voiced his concern that some scientists are, according to an interview given to the Daily Mail, mixing up their scientific role with that of climate activist. He claims that there are multiple indicators for how science is gradually being influenced by political views. (source)

Solo Female Travellers of the World, Unite "IndyWatch Feed National"

The negativity towards solo female travellers really cripples my nipple. The concern from loved ones, the biased portrayal from the media and that raised eyebrow you get from complete strangers really aggravates my inner urge to pipe up. Society just seems to think that females shouldnt travel alone.

At the ripe old age of 18, I ventured to Europe without a Contiki tour package. My best friend and I did it by ourselves: we saved the money and booked our flights and left, with no itinerary. We blew wherever the wind took us for six months. I understand the concern that this raised within my family and friends: it had nothing to do with age just the pure thought of two girls with no life experience exposing ourselves to the big bad world. But I was never going to gain that experience from books and lectures I wanted to put myself out there and learn from what was put in front of me.

When I was overseas, I was the lowest in the social feeding chain. If anyone wanted to take advantage of a traveller, their victim would more than likely be me. A white, baby-faced blonde with an open mind I was as vulnerable as a newborn baby. And I thought I was the luckiest person in the world because, in two years of travelling abroad, I never had that negative experience that everyone feared would happen.

It wasnt until I travelled my own country that I began to feel unsafe. I was alone in my van travelling the east coast of Australia when a group of inebriated males started abusing me through the window and shaking my car. They threatened ludicrous things like, Ill knife ya if you dont sleep with me, ya cunt. My car battery was flat and all I could do was sit inside and listen. I can blame myself for being parked in a public area and not having my curtains closed (and maybe falling asleep with the keys in the ignitionoops), but thats not what it should come down to. Its not my fault that a bunch of creeps threatened to knife me.

Female travellers are not purposely subjecting themselves to danger. We just have the ladyballs to take the risk because we understand that travelling is worth it. And if something does happen, its just another case of bad luck: it could happen to anyone, but today it was me.

Then again, Ive met so many lovely female solo travellers who wont get drunk or go to a hostel without good security and a 24-hour reception. They wont do certain things because theres a possibility of danger. They live with fear; its in the back of every action. I understand that this is considered a necessary pr...

Byron Council pursue Butler St residents "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Screen Shot 2017-07-10 at 3.27.05 pmIs Byron Shire Council trying to stifle the communitys rights to reject unwanted or questionable development?

The question has been raised by the peak body that represents progress associations and other community groups across the shire after they were informed that the council is pursuing court costs from Butler Street residents over their bypass challenge.

The residents recently lost their case against council over the validity to construct a bypass past their homes and associated works.

Known as a SLAPP, or a strategic lawsuit against public participation, it is a practice deployed by large corporations to intimidate and silence opponents.

Community Alliance for Byron Shire (CABS) president Matthew OReilly says his group is questioning what impact such an action will have on other community organisations [and their] willingness to stand up for issues that are in the public interest. 

OReilly said, We understand that Council wants to avoid frivolous and vexatious legal challenges to its operations and planning decisions, but whether pursuing a community group who have no assets for costs best serves this purpose is unclear.

Echonetdaily asked the mayor is he supported the pursuit of this legal action against Butler Street residents.

He replied, Currently council has requested only half of the legal costs and there has since been a counter offer. I support accepting the counter offer and moving on. Obviously, council has a responsibility to ensure it can recover legal costs from vexatious lawsuits, however, council has in the past waived costs from legal proceedings brought about by community organisations.

No briefing

Meanwhile Councillor Paul Spooner told Echonetdaily there was no briefing from staff on the matter and he is unsure of where proceedings were at.

We are on recess at the moment, he said. Though, Id be very cauti...

Chinas Crackdown On High Roller Promotions Means More Pokie Misery For Brisbane "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Queensland Labor government seems content to saddle the state with more poker machines, and the heartache that comes with it, writes Greens Senator Larissa Waters.

The jailing of three Australian Crown Resorts employees for promoting gambling in China is likely to saddle Brisbanites with more dangerous, addictive poker machines.

Star Entertainment Group who are behind the Queens Wharf development, say theyll make one third of their revenue from VIP gambling. This will mean encouraging predominantly Chinese high-rollers to come to Brisbane and spend big money. But this very same activity has landed those three Australians in a Chinese prison, as the Chinese Government cracks down on the promotion of gambling to high rollers, to stop the rivers of Chinese money flowing offshore.

http://bit.ly/2sparkkebubbles

After the Crown staff were initially detained in October last year, the companys share price dipped 14 per cent in a single day. Star too was hurt by the news their share price dropped by more than 20 per cent and is yet to recover.

Clearly the business model of relying on high rollers for revenue is broken, so where does that leave the Queens Wharf mega-casino?

Without Chinese money, the project could very well topple completely, and Brisbane could be left with a half-excavated building site.

An artist's impression of the planned Queens Wharf development in Brisbane.An artists impression of the planned Queens Wharf development in Brisbane.

But much more likely is that Queens Wharf will rely on installing even more exploitative, addictive poker machines. That should worry all Brisbanites.

Nationally 40 per cent of poker machine revenue comes from problem gamblers whose addiction can lead to financial hardship, family breakdown, domestic violence and suicide.

Recent research suggests pokies inside casinos are even more harmful than those in smaller clubs and pubs.

http://bit.ly/2sparkkebubbles

Having granted Star permission for 2,500 pokies, Queensland Labor (cheered on by the LNP) are unleashing more of these hardships and miseries upon the people of Brisbane, so property developers and gambling companies can keep their billions in profits.

Why would they do that? Follow the money: Star Entertai...

Tesla to Build 129 Megawatt-Hours Battery Storage System in Australia "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2017/07/tesla-build-titanic-battery-facility

Tesla announced today that it will build the world's largest lithium-ion battery system to store electricity in Australia. The 100-megawatt installationmore than three times as powerful as the biggest existing battery systemwill be paired with the Hornsdale Wind Farm near Jamestown, operated by the French renewable energy company Neoen, in a deal with the state of South Australia. The Tesla battery should smooth out the variability inherent in sustainable power generation schemes.

"Cost-effective storage of electrical energy is the only problem holding us back from getting all of our power from wind and solar," says Ian Lowe, an energy policy specialist at Griffith University in Nathan, Australia, near Brisbane. The Tesla system, he says, will "demonstrate the feasibility of large-scale storage." It might also win over skeptics who doubt that renewables can match the dependability of conventional fossil fuel and nuclear power plants, says Geoffrey James, a renewable energy engineer at University of Technology Sydney.

[...] The battery installation will be a key feature of the state's aggressive move toward reliably generating half of its electricity from renewables by 2025. That drive suffered an image problem last September and again in February, when power blackouts hobbled the state. Conservative politicians were quick to blame South Australia's shift away from fossil fuels. "It's very easy to use a blackout to attack renewable energy," James says. Investigations concluded that the failures were not due to the reliance on renewables but rather to the collapse of transmission towers in one case and unexpected power demands in another. In addition to helping match renewable energy generation and use, James says, the battery facility's "high power capacity will be available in quick bursts" to keep the electricity's frequency in the right range in the event of grid disruptions and demand surges.

Government should release Philip Morris plain packaging case costs "IndyWatch Feed National"

July 10, 2017: Media Release: We welcome the international tribunal decision that Philip Morris tobacco company should pay the costs of its failed case against Australias 2011 plain packaging law. But it is absurd and unacceptable that the tribunal has not released the amount of the costs, which have been blacked out of the published decision, Australian Fair Trade and Investment Network Convener Dr Patricia Ranald said today.

Dr Ranald said that the Australian public had a right to know the full costs of the failed case, which dragged on for over four years.

The failure to publish the costs exposes the unacceptable nature of the international tribunal system known as Investor-Disputes (ISDS), which enables global corporations to bypass national courts and sue governments in international tribunals over public health and other public interest laws, said Dr Ranald.

She added that ISDS tribunals lack the proper legal safeguards of national court systems, having no independent judiciary, no precedents and no appeals, and wide discretion which enables absurd processes like refusal to release the amount of costs, which would not be accepted in a national court system.

Dr Ranald explained that Philip Morris, a US company, shifted some assets to Hong Kong and used ISDS provisions in an obscure Hong Kong Australia investment agreement because the Howard government refused to include ISDS in the US-Australia free trade agreement. But the current Coalition government has agreed to ISDS in the Korea and China free trade agreements which are in force, and in the failed Trans-Pacific partnership, which has not been ratified by the Australian Parliament.  The government is also supporting ISDS in other trade negotiations. This means there could be more cases against public health environment and other public interest laws.

Dr Ranald said that AFTINET, which is a network of community groups, had consistently opposed ISDS in trade agreements, and that the Labor opposition, Greens and Nick Xenophon team also had policies against it.

AFTINET calls on the Australian government to release the costs of the Philip Morris case immediately, and to oppose the inclusion of ISDS in all trade agreements, she said.

Doing Lines Means Different Things at Public and Private Schools, Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

LINES BLACKBOARD

Government funding for private schools is being reassessed this week after a new study revealed teachers have been giving students lines of coke rather than asking them to write out lines in books, a classic punishment used in public schools.

Private school teachers have defended their actions, saying that it was an easy mistake to make, especially after a few shots of gin at little lunch.

When the principal told me to give out lines to students who misbehave, I never dreamed she meant asking them to write things repeatedly that wouldve just required students to copy and paste a sentence on their new MacBook Pros, and I cant see the point of that, one teacher said.

Doing lines of coke, on the other hand, really helps some students to sharpen their focus and prepares them for the real world, where theyll need to be able to network with other private school graduates at exclusive clubs and parties.

Public schools have expressed some sympathy for the misunderstanding, with gym teachers noting they faced similar criticisms after giving ice to students with sprains.

What technology designers need to know to understand privacy "IndyWatch Feed National"

Privacy is contentious today.  Some say the information age has brought real changes to privacy norms.  With so much private data leaking through breaches, accidents and digital business practices, its often said that the genie is out of the bottle.  Many think privacy has become hopeless.  Yet in Europe and many jurisdictions, privacy rights have been strongly and freshly enforced, and for the very latest digital processes.

For technology designers and security pros coming to grips with privacy, the place to start is the concept of personal information also known as personal data in the EU, or PII in the US.  The threshold for data counting as personal information is low: any data about a person whose identity is readily apparent constitutes personal information in most places, regardless of where it came from, or who might be said to own it. This is not obvious to engineers without legal training, who may form a more casual understanding of what private means.  So it seems paradoxical to them that the words public and private dont even figure at all in laws like Australias Privacy Act!

There is a cynical myth that Technology outpaces the Law. In practice, it is the law that challenges technology, not the other way around!  The grandiose claim that the law cannot keep up with technology is often a rhetorical device used to embolden developers and entrepreneurs.  New technologies can make it easier to break old laws, but the legal principles in most cases still stand.  If privacy is the fundamental right to be let alone, then there is nothing intrinsic to technology that supersedes that right.  It turns out that technology neutral privacy laws framed over 30 years ago are powerful against very modern trespasses, like wi-fi snooping by Google, over-zealous use of biometrics by Facebook, and intrusive search results extracted from our deep dark pasts by the all-seeing Google. So technology really only outpaces policing.

One of the leading efforts to inculcate privacy into engineering practice has been the Privacy by Design movement (PbD), started in the 1990s by Ontario privacy commissioner Dr Ann Cavoukian.  PbD seeks to embed privacy into the design specifications of technologies, business practices, and physical infrastructures. As such it is basically the same good idea as building in security, or building in quality, because to retrofit these things too late leads to higher costs and disappointing outcomes.

In my view, the problem with the Privacy by Design manifesto is its idealism.  Privacy is actually full of contradictions and competing interests, and we need to be more mature about this.

Just look at the cornerstone privacy principles.  Collection Limitation for example can contradict the security instinct to retain as much data as possible, in case it proves use...

Turnbull allows another Aussie ship to sail over horizon "IndyWatch Feed National"

From the Maritime Union of Australia (MUA)

The Turnbull Government must stand up for Australian jobs in blue water shipping after its administration of coastal shipping rules encouraged a major international employer to dump the crew on another Australian vessel.

The Canadian Steamship Lines (CSL) Thevenard recently sailed to China, purportedly for dry-docking, but the Aussie crew members were notified yesterday [4 July] of their sacking and given their flights home.

MUA National Secretary Paddy Crumlin said the Turnbull Government could not allow the offshoring of jobs to continue by issuing temporary licences that allow cheap, foreign labour to be used instead of Aussie vessels and crew.

The MUA is disgusted at the Turnbull Governments willful indifference to the plight of Australian seafarers and the Transport Minister must immediately cease issuing temporary licenses under the Coastal Trading ACT, MUA National Secretary Paddy Crumlin said.

The Government needs to act in the national interest by ceasing the destruction of the Bluewater shipping industry by allowing companies to use the cheapest, most highly exploited crews and a tax avoidance industry backing these ships.

The issuing of temporary licences is done by the Government of the day. They have the power to deny companies such as CSL and if Turnbull and his ministers wont do it then the Government needs to change in favour of one that stands up for Australian jobs.

Crumlin said exploited crew on Flag of Convenience vessels earn as little as $1.20 an hour, have less training and are often unaware of our fragile coastal environment. They do not meet national security screening applying to Australian resident seafarers and are directly making Australian seafarers unemployed in effectively taking their jobs under this industry of rorting and vandalizing Australian workers rights. Its a national disgrace.

Australian workers cannot compete with slave labour and systemic tax avoidance under the FOC system. We must maintain our blue water shipping industry on the grounds of national security, fuel security, protecting Australian jobs and the environment, he said.

ITF Cabotage Task Force Chair and Seafarers International Union of Canada (SIU) president James Given said: Despite pressure from shippers to decrease costs, CSL must provide international leadership and maintain decent standards of employment rather than engage in a race to the bottom.

ITF Maritime Coordinator Jacqueline Smith said: The conservative government in Australia clearly has no intention to support its national shipping despite the importance maritime has for Australia, however CSL has had a longstanding relationship with MUA and we expect them to return to engagement on...

FixedIt: Another day, another, child sex headline "IndyWatch Feed National"

Another man charged with sexual assaulting children, another headline about child sex. This one from ABC news.

To be very clear, this man has not yet been to court. Nothing written here about the headline is relevant to his guilt or innocence, which can only be determined by a full hearing of the evidence in court. This commentary is solely about how we describe the charges against him.

Here are the reasons this matters, in every case, with every headline.

The victim impact statements from child abuse trail are harrowing, a testament to the lifelong injuries suffered by people who were sexually abused as children. They are the litany of drug addition, alcohol dependence, gambling problems, depression, crippling anxiety, relationship breakdowns, suicidal thoughts, shame, self-hatred, mistrust of others and long term emotional damage so common in survivors of child sexual abuse. Children who have been abused are also significantly more likely to suffer further abuse, both as children and as adults.

The effects of sexual abuse of children then lead to the cycle of horror where victims become unreliable witnesses to their own abuse.

When the media, as it so persistently does, labels sexual abuse of children as child sex, we are weakening the public understanding of the extent and effect of such abuse. This has serious effects. A study conducted for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse found that juries who have a better understanding of the facts of child sexual abuse are less likely to make mistakes in their assessment of evidence given in court.

Children cannot have sex with adults. Sex requires consent and children, by definition, cannot give consent, so its not sex. Its rape, its child abuse, its sexual abuse, its any number of terms that accurately describe a crime. An act perpetrated on an innocent victim, someone who was unable to defend themselves from the violence done to them, and who suffers for years, possibly decades, from the trauma caused by an adults choice to commit that violence.

That word choice is the key. Sex is a choice made by every person involved. Rape and abuse are a choice made only by the perpetrator. The victim has no choice.

No child has ever chosen to be abused. No child has ever done anything that cause...

TAS Jail for Salamanca coward punch "IndyWatch Feed National"

Friday, 11 July 2014 3:00 pm.

A Hobart man who coward punched another man will spend the next three months in jail after he was sentenced at the Hobart Magistrates Court yesterday.

Kye Mathew John Langdon, aged 25, of Montrose, punched his victim so hard in the head he burst his eardrum.

Langdon fractured his own knuckles when he punched the man and required surgery.

The attack took place just after 3am on November 30, 2013 at the taxi rank in Castray Esplanade in Salamanca.

Senior Sergeant Craig Joel said: This was a completely unprovoked and cowardly attack on someone who was simply waiting for a taxi.

Violence of any sort is unacceptable and this sort of violence is particularly cowardly.

It shows that one punch can cause serious injury and it also shows that one punch can result in jail time.

The message to anyone who thinks its entertainment to hit someone else is to think seriously about whether you want to end up in jail, Senior Sergeant Joel said.

Langdon had been to a party at a bar in Salamanca before the attack.

Just a few minutes before he punched the victim he assaulted another man at the same taxi rank by pushing him over the railing and smacking him in the face.

He was also convicted of that assault.

Following the incident, CCTV images were circulated around police stations and in the media, resulting in Langdon being identified and arrested within just a few weeks.

Kevin Hogan, Thomas George and Isaac Smith at todays million dollar announcement for Lismores Albert Park Baseball complex. Photo supplied.

Lismore is aiming to bring Australian baseball into the international arena with todays announcement of $1 million in funding for the Albert Park Baseball Complex.

I am really excited to see this facility being upgraded, said Lismore Mayor, Isaac Smith.

We have international teams from Korea and Japan that are looking to come here for training a month at a time which will be of great benefit to local businesses.

The grant is provided to Lismore City Council in partnership with Baseball Australia and Far North Coast Baseball under the Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) program for 2016-17. It is estimated that the Albert Park complex will generate $9 million annually for the local economy.

Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said It is great that we are able to recognise today the strong role that baseball plays in Lismore. By investing $1 million into the Albert park complex we will attract even more National and International events.

Member for Lismore Thomas George said the project has enabled Baseball Australia to commit to hosting events, competitions and training camps for the next five years.

Albert Park will put Lismore on the world stage as home to Australias premier Base Ball Hub which will be a terrific draw card for visitors to the region, Mr George said.

290-lot West Byron subdivision rejected by council "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

West Byron DA

A well attended extraordinary meeting last Thursday (July 6) saw councillors unanimously vote to reject a massive housing/industrial proposal on Ewingsdale Road.

All councillors spoke against the West Byron application by Queensland-based company Villa World and Sydney-based developer Terry Agnew, citing failures of consent and insufficient information supplied. The DA is also opposed by Council staff, but councils submission will be sent to the Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP), who will have the final say.

Even Nationals Party aligned Cr Alan Hunter, who originally voted for the development to be handed to the state govt for consideration in the previous council term, said the developers needed to pull their finger out.

During public access, resident and farmer Tony Flick told the gallery there has been a longtime issue with treated effluent flowing onto his land on Ewingsdale Road from the West Byron sewage treatment plant (STP).

This discharge has been escalating rapidly owing to he increase in development in the Byron Bay area. A 35 acre portion of our farmland is now in such a degraded state that grasses wont grow there anymore. Most private landowners would have taken legal action against council many years ago, but this is not the fix. It would only take funds away from our degraded and inadequate infrastructure. Council started to work towards reducing the impact of this on our land, although the process has taken two years and there is no end in sight. It is time that the focus is taken away from development at any cost, and [we] start caring for the long term residents and ratepayers who have built and supported this community.

Additionally Melaleuca Drive resident Tim Hochgrebe told the gallery that he has not been presented with plans showing how two metres of fill will sit alongside Melaleuca Drive and his property. There are no answers, he said and also agreed with Cr Ndiaye that drainage had not been addressed.

Census Data shows SA lags on home internet access "IndyWatch Feed National"

& Premiers electorate the most digitally disconnected in Adelaide!

A SACOSS analysis of recent Census data shows the Premiers electorate of Cheltenham has the lowest rate of households accessing the internet in Adelaide.

But thats by no means the only bad news for Jay Weatherill as a whole South Australia lagged behind the national average in online connectivity. There was also a clear regional disadvantage with country areas faring worse than metro ones.

This new data shows:

  • 17% of SA households are not connecting to the internet. This compares to 14.1% nationally.
  • The six state electorates with the lowest level of internet connection from home were in regional areas.
  • 10 of the 12 country electorates were below the state average, and all were below the national average.
  • Cheltenham was the worst metro seat with 22% of households not accessing the internet from home (the 7th worst in the state).

SACOSS CEO, Ross Womersley says, Having an internet connection at home is important because it enables households to engage with government and businesses which are increasingly online, and to keep in touch with friends, community and culture.

So it is disappointing that South Australia lags behind the national average level in connecting to the internet. with 17% of SA households not connecting compared to 14.1% nationally.

Connectivity is not just about access to internet or the nbn, it is also crucially about affordability of access and the level of competence and comfort in using online platforms.

Connectivity is particularly important in regional areas where the internet provides vital access to markets and services which are may not be available locally.

And if you live 50km from the nearest town then even connecting with friends on social media takes on a more important dimension. Yet 10 of the 12 country electorates rate below the state average in accessing the internet.

There are also big differences between electorates in Adelaide with households in higher income areas more likely to be accessing the internet at home.

But it is not just about income. Digital disadvantage reflects other forms of disadvantage, but it also makes getting jobs and suppor...

Govt spying on sharks with new listening device at Ballina "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

SMART drumlines have been shown to be much more effective at attracting target species than nets. (Image: Youtube.com)

SMART drumlines have been shown to be much more effective at attracting target species than nets. (Image: Youtube.com)

The NSW Government has expanded its network of shark listening stations along the coastline to 21, with the addition of one at Ballinas Lighthouse Beach following consultation with the local community and beach authorities recently.

Parliamentary Secretary for Northern NSW, Ben Franklin, said this extra line of defence would provide scientists more information and assist in tracking shark movements in the area.

We now have listening stations from Kingscliff in the north to Merimbula in the south making the NSW coastline an information highway for tracking dangerous sharks, Mr Franklin said.

These stations provide the public with regular updates on shark movements in their local area, allowing them to make more informed decisions when visiting the beach.

Our shark scientists are currently tracking 111 white sharks, 31 bull and two tiger sharks across NSW.

Sharks caught on SMART drumlines are fitted, where possible, with both an acoustic and satellite tag before being released out to sea.

When a tagged shark swims within 500 metres of the station, an alert is sent to both beach authorities and the public via the Shark Smart app.

Mr Franklin said more is being learnt about sharks than ever before, with the data not only helping research in NSW but around the world.

In our six-month net trial we caught only seven target sharks (including three white sharks) while 25 SMART drumlines caught 37 target sharks (including 31 white sharks) in the same period.

SMART drumlines are modern technology which are proving to be highly effective.

There are currently 35 SMART drumlines on the north coast, with a further ten to be deployed shortly in the Byron area.

Nets still funded

But NSW Greens MLC Justin Field and Ballina Greens MP Tamara Smith have questioned why future funding had been provided for shark nets when the government has itself said results showed the drumlines to be far more effective.

It is concerning to see an allocation in the budget that specifically names shark nets when the trial ove...

Shortly after midnight on Saturday 14th June 2014, uniformed officers intercepted a Ford Falcon sedan in Elphin Road Newnham. A search of the vehicle and its occupants resulted in police locating a loaded .38 revolver in the possession of the driver. A front seat passenger in the vehicle had possession of two speed loader cartridges each with 6 rounds of ammunition to fit a different type of firearm. The firearm and speed loaders are suspected to be stolen property.

Trump got an icy reception at G20 summit "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

As so many predicted, Donald Trump and the message he took to the Group of 20 summit at Hamburg received an icy reception.

On every major issue, the United States was left isolated.

Despite two days of photo shoot back slapping and smiles, the ambition to recruit support for the American position on North Korea failed. Chian and Russia took hold of the initiative, with their peace based on mutual disarmament and easing of sanctions position.

The differences became most marked on trade, migration and global warming. This is important because the G20 represents the worlds leading economies and therefore carries as great deal of global political influence.

American isolation marks the departure from an era, where American supremacy has been the rule since the end of World War Two, as the superpower succumbs to growing economic weakness, reaction against its increasing reliance of force as its assertiveness is also a major factor behind the differences.Europe, under the leadership of  Germany, ans secondly France, does not want to play second fiddle to American interests and is increasingly positioning itself as a major competitor.

The best illustration of this now, are the differences between Germanys chancellor Angle Merkel and Donald Trump that has become evident over recent months. It was Merkel that took the lead in Hamburg. At a news conference as well as openly saying she deplores, the American decision to walk away, she said We as Europeans have to take our fate into our own hands. While she was specifically referring to climate warming, it really covered the tone over gulf that has opened over all the key issues.

Representing France, the newly elected president Emmanuel Macron, lined up with Merkel. The world has never been so divided, he said. If this is not drawing a line in the sand, what is?

Trump is now due in Paris and is likely to find it a bit of a challenge.

Even with the  post summit language of consensus over the final resolution, it remains that the Trump demand to punish nations for what he sees as unfair trade practices, did not get up. This is not surprising, given that the targets are China and Europe.

Washington has been trying to impose open access for American business interests, while at the same time, denying challengers entry into the American economy.

Many nations are genuinely worried that Washington may launch harmful trade wars.

Injured bushwalker rescued from Mt Warning "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Mt Warning (Wollumbin).

Mt Warning (Wollumbin).

The Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was called upon to retrieve a 47-year-old female bushwalker on Saturday after she fell down the chain section of the track near the summit of Mount Warning (Wollumbin).

The walker suffered facial and shoulder injuries as a result of the fall.

The Helicopter doctor and a NSW Ambulance paramedic were winched down the to the summit of Mt Warning and then had to make their way down the chain section of the track to access the female walker.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter relocated to await a radio call from the medical rescue team to return to the summit and recovery all three before last light. The winch recovery was conducted from the summit of Mt Warning.

Due to the difficult access the Helicopter was required to conduct a rescue hoist recovery using the air rescue vest.

The female patient was transported to Tweed Heads Hospital where she is in a stable condition.

Time to learn bird rescue for free "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Not all Pelican captures require chasing a bird down the middle of the Pacific Highway, but you can learn all the basic techniques to capture and handle seabirds and shorebirds at the upcoming First Responders Workshop at Australian Seabird Rescue (ASR) on Sunday July 16.

Australian Seabird Rescue rescuers faced a hairy proposition when Geraldine, a young female pelican, who had a number of dog bites, took up a roost on a traffic island in the middle of school holiday traffic on the Pacific Highway near Tabbimobil recently. At only six months old the pelican would have been on her first visit to the coast after hatching on an inland waterway during the summer. She is now recovering well at ASR.

Acting General Manager at Seabird Rescue, Keith Williams, said Geraldine is very lucky, this could have easily gone very wrong. We are grateful both she and the rescuers are safe.  Anybody can learn the skills to rescue wildlife, but doing it safely, firstly for yourself, but also for the animal is the most important factor.

We are always on the lookout for new volunteers, so if you think you might be interested, wed encourage you to attend our next workshop.

Australian Seabird Rescue will be conducting eight workshops along the NSW Coast over the next year thanks to a grant from the NSW Environment Trust.

The grant enables ASR to conduct workshops where we currently lack volunteers, but we have big populations of coastal birds. In addition to Ballina, workshops will also be held at Ulladulla, Lake Macquarie and Coffs Harbour over the next few months.

The Environmental Trust support enables us to offer the workshops free to participants, to revise and re-print our training materials and recruit more people to help this vital work in protecting our marine environment.

Rise Against announce an Aussie tour of dangerous spaces where misogyny and xenophobia cant exist "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Rise Against are heading back to Australia for their biggest tour yet, although youll have to wait until next year for the U.S. outfit to bring their eighth LP Wolves to Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Supported by Cali punk outfit SWMRS, Rise Against have a pretty specific goal in mind for the record and ensuing shows, walking a line between safety and danger.

In many ways, a Rise Against show is a safe space for our fans, says frontman Tim McIlrath. But I realised I want to create dangerous spaces where misogyny cant exist, where xenophobia cant exist.

I want to create spaces where those sentiments dont have any air, and they suffocate: where those ideas die, he adds. Wolves isnt about creating a safe space, its about creating a space thats dangerous for injustice.

Fans can immerse themselves in the album right now, which was released last month, and can check out dates and ticket details below.

NSW Schools Introduce Pill Testing to Ensure Students are Sufficiently Medicated "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Drugs School

Schools across the state are set to introduce pill testing this month, in a bid to verify the quality of the wide variety of medications students are prescribed, ranging from mood stabiliser injections to peanut blockers.

A NSW government health spokesperson told The Sydney Sentinel that the move would save lives.

Unmedicated students are challenging to teach and can cause stress fractures or even death in teaching folk, she said. They ask intelligent questions, run around the joint at lunch and have far too much life in them. The only way well know if students are properly sedated for learning is if we test their medications.

Early learning experts have also backed the move, saying pill testing is in everyones best interests.

Kids are hard to teach. They tend to have their own ideas and annoying traits like creativity, which, fortunately, theyll grow out of, one expert said. Medication solves this problem instantly, but only if were giving kids a high enough dose. Pill testing will ensure theyre being looked after properly.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) is urging horse owners to remain vigilant, following confirmation of Hendra virus infection in an unvaccinated horse near Lismore.

Hendra virus is potentially fatal to humans who come in contact with infected horses.

NSW Chief Veterinary Officer, Dr Christine Middlemiss, said the property near Lismore has been placed under movement restrictions by Local Land Services.

This is the first case of Hendra virus confirmed in NSW this year, Dr Middlemiss said.

Samples from the horse were sent by a private veterinarian for DPI laboratory analysis , which confirmed the Hendra virus last night.

The 11-year-old gelding was euthanised last night by the Local Land Services district veterinarian.

Dr Middlemiss said the horse was noticed to be lethargic on Thursday (July 6) and by Friday was not eating and was wobbly on its feet.

There has been a case of Hendra virus in the area before.

All known Hendra virus cases have occurred in Queensland or northern NSW, she said, but added that cases could occur wherever there are flying foxes or in horses that had recent contact with flying foxes prior to movement.

Dr Middlemiss advised allhorse owners to discuss a Hendra virus vaccination strategy with their veterinarian.

Vaccination remains the most effective way of reducing the risk of Hendra virus infection in horses, but good biosecurity and personal hygiene measures should always be practiced in conjunction with it, she said.

Horses should also be kept away from flowering and fruiting trees that are attractive to bats. Do not place feed and water under trees and cover feed and water containers with a shelter so they cannot be contaminated from above.

Dr Middlemiss said that if your horse is unwell you should keep people and other animals away from the horse and call your vet immediately.

If your vet is unavailable you can call a District Veterinarian with the Local Land Services or the Animal Biosecurity Emergency Hotline on 1800 675 888.

Clean energy target would drop power bills "IndyWatch Feed National"

wind-turbines

Katina Curtis

CANBERRA [AAP]

Power bills would fall significantly over the next decade if the federal government adopted a clean energy target.

And they would fall even further if a more aggressive target was adopted, a new analysis has found.

According to the modelling from respected energy market analysts RepuTex, sticking with business as usual would lead to wholesale electricity prices of more than $100 per megawatt hour by 2030, largely because of a heavy reliance on gas-fired power with high fuel prices.

A clean energy target as recommended by Chief Scientist Alan Finkel would encourage investment in new energy generation above the amount expected to close, leading to a more competitive market.

A CET in line with the Finkel report would lead to wholesale prices of $60/MWh.

With a tougher target more in line with an international agreement to limit global warming to two degrees, power prices would be just $40/MWh by 2030.

RepuTexs energy and carbon market director Hugh Grossman has titled his report as a blunt message: Its the economics, stupid.

He also says baseload-only generators traditionally coal- and gas-fired power will be too inflexible to compete in Australias future energy market.

Falling demand for electricity during the daytime and peaks in the evening mean generators that can cheaply and quickly ramp up production will be more competitive.

Traditionally newer gas generators have filled this demand but again, high gas prices have changed the equation, making wind or solar cheaper even with the added costs of storage.

Renewables are a lay down misere to out-compete traditionally fossil-fuel sources in Australia for the foreseeable future, Mr Grossman said.

Under a clean energy target, generators create certificates based on how much below a threshold level of emissions their power is, with a number of certifica...

SYDNEY [AAP]

Cardinal George Pell has returned to Australia to face historical sexual abuse charges in Melbourne at the end of the month.

The 76-year-old was pictured early on Monday morning leaving Sydney Airport after flying in from the Vatican via Singapore.

Victoria Police on June 29 charged the cardinal, a former Melbourne and Sydney archbishop and Ballarat priest, with multiple sex offences.

Australias most senior Catholic insists he is innocent and is looking forward to fighting the charges in court.

The cardinal, a top adviser to Pope Francis, has taken a leave of absence as the Vaticans financial chief to fight the charges.

He told reporters in Rome in June that the laying of charges had strengthened his resolve to prove his innocence.

There has been relentless character assassination, he told reporters in Rome after the charges were laid.

Im looking forward, finally, to having my day in court.

Im innocent of these charges. They are false. The whole idea of sexual abuse is abhorrent to me.

CANBERRA [AAP]

Finance minister Mathias Cormann believes Malcolm Turnbull made Australias position against US import tariffs on Aussie steel and aluminium well understood at the G20 summit.

Senator Cormann confirmed the pair spoke to US treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin, while the prime minister raised the issue directly with president Donald Trump.

We understand the US concerns about the pressure that steel and aluminium sectors are under, he told ABC radio on Monday.

But Senator Cormann insisted Australia was a close ally and trusted trading partner which is not responsible for the issues the US is concerned about.

It should be exempt from any trade sanctions President Trump wants to impose.

Asked to rate Australias chances of an exemption, Senator Cormann said: As a result of the strong representations by the prime minister the Australian position is well understood.

He refused to speak more about the private conversations.

EU clones itself in West Africa and then tries to ransack the region "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

In a recent blog If Africa is rich why is it so poor? I considered the question of why the resources that make Africa rich have not been deployed to the benefit of the indigenous people who reside there. We saw that poverty is rife in Africa, when it is obvious to all and sundry that these nations possess massive resource wealth. The answer to that paradox is that the framework of development aid and oversight put in place by the richer nations and mediated through the likes of the IMF and the World Bank can be seen more as a giant vacuum cleaner designed to suck resource and financial wealth out of the poorer nations either through legal or illegal means, whichever generates the largest flows. So while Africa is wealthy, its interaction with the world monetary and trade systems, leaves millions of its citizens in extreme poverty unable to even purchase sufficient nutrition to live. The free trade agreement (EPA) between the EU and the West African nations is one such vacuum-like device. In fact, the West African states are still mired in post-colonial dependency not because they lack the resources available to set out their own development path, but, rather, because of the post-colonial institutions that have been set up to maintain control by the former colonialists of those resources. Not content to ruin the prosperity in the Eurozone, the EU is pressuring some of the poorest nations in the world to adopt the same sort of failed monetary and fiscal arrangements and then go further and sign free trade agreements with reciprocal access. The rest of the West African states should follow Nigerias example and abandon these arrangements.

Twelve of 16 countries of West Africa are considered to be Least Developed Countries (LDC) or poor in common language.

The 12 LCD nations are Benin, Burkina Faso, Gambie, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, while the 4 non LDC are Cape Verde, Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Nigeria.

The intoxicated adult was licensed and had allowed the inexperienced teenager to drive his motor vehicle, on a wet road, at night, with a second teenager also in the vehicle. The adult was breath tested at the scene and returned an indication of 0.215%.

None of the occupants of the vehicle or house, were injured in the collision. Both the front of the house and the motor vehicle however sustained significant damage.

Both the driver and adult passenger will face charges in relation to this matter.

Tasmania Police are currently undertaking an intelligence-led focus on drink driving offences and road safety.

A Transcript of My Video on Craig Sawyer that was Removed Today an Hour After Posting "IndyWatch Feed National"

And now I am blocked on YouTube for two weeks now

I typed it out EXACTLY as I spoke it

It is July 9th this is Dave Shurter- and this is my video for today. Ummmm- I received a threat from Craig Sawyer and now he is posting all about me on Facebook. Ummmm- the dude says he doesnt even know who I am yet he was following my Twitter yesterday morning which is how it all started. If you want to go read the conversation and the stuff that he sent me you can just go to my blog- DavidShurter.com S H U R T as in Tom E R. Ive regained control of it- someone helped me get back control of it so now I am able to post on it again.

Ummmm- so now he is threatening me with lawyers so basically instead of taking his donations and helping children he is going after someone who he claims is a nobody because I speak out against him. You know. So that is how he is spending his donations. And what is he going to do? Basically what I said yesterday in my video is if you send him a check in the mail he has access to your bank account- your signature- your fingerprints- and if you lick the envelope- your DNA. Whats wrong with that? You know- it is just logical- its just sensible- but now he is on this whole campaign and I ALSO want to point out I never once said that he was working for Hillary Clinton. HE said that this morning when on the Wikipedia thing it just says Clinton. And I didnt know if it was Bill or Hillary so I never mentioned any names but now he is saying that he worked for Hillary. And so this whole situation is bizarre. And he is telling everybody that I am a nobody but if I am a nobody why are you fighting me so hard? You know.

And the comments underneath about me not allowing comments is because I am not going to spend all day fighting with people on those YouTube comments. You know. And I have already pointed out- there is a protection order and I am NOT having the information about that protection order put in those comments so that I get in trouble. Im not doing it. You know. Im not setting myself up for these people.

But a- if Im such a nobody- why does he care? But let me point out something- Im involved with this because I have been spending the last trying to get my dad investigated for child trafficking and THAT is what they are fighting. They are fighting from that information ever coming out. You know- that is what this whole thing is about. And what he did today with the stuff that he posted on Facebook which I got- ummm- he does exactly what the perps do. He is making ME be the villain- oh I have anger issues but do I seem angry? Im not angry- Im just calling shit out. You know? Im not angry about it- this stuff doesnt make me angry anymore its just irritating. But it doesnt make me angry.

On Monday the 23 June 2014 a search was conducted at an East Devonport residence by members of the Devonport Criminal Investigation Branch and Western Drug Investigation Services.

As a result of that search, firearms and ammunition were located within the residence. The resident, Nathan Gregory COPPLEMAN, 22 years of age, was the subject of a Firearms Prohibition Order.

Police can seek to issue a Firearms Prohibition Order under the Firearms Act 1996. The Order prevents a person from being in possession of a firearm or even in the same premises as a firearm.

As a result Coppleman was arrested and charged with breaching said order. He appeared in an after-hours court where he was remanded in custody before appearing in the Devonport Magistrates Court on Tuesday 24 June 2014.

Further searches were conducted on Tuesday 24 June 2014 in the Central Coast area.

10 firearms were seized from two searches. A 43 year old man will be charged in relation to an unregistered firearm. A 50 year old man will be subject to charges in relation to the possession of a prohibited firearm.

There will be a firearms amnesty held at the Sheffield Recreation Ground this Sunday between the hours of 9am and 1pm.

Members of the public are reminded that any unwanted firearms can be handed to any police station or arrangements made for collection. There is a permanent amnesty for surrendering of firearms in this manner.

TAS Stolen property searching for owners "IndyWatch Feed National"

Friday, 30 May 2014 3:09 pm.

Bellerive Criminal Investigation Branch officers are seeking the owners of a large quantity of stolen property suspected as having been stolen from the Lauderdale, Howrah, Bellerive, Hobart, Sandy Bay, Lutana and Moonah areas.

A 48-year-old man from the Eastern Shore has been charged with committing nine burglaries, 12 stealings and possessing stolen property from vehicles, houses and sheds.

Although a large amount of stolen property has been returned to the owners some property is yet to be matched with its owners. Police suspect some of the property has not been reported stolen or the owners are not aware it is missing.

Some of the property is quite unique and of some value.

Police have 20 bottles of wine that are suspected of having been stolen. Two bottles have been marked by the owner in handwriting. The collection comprises wines from a number of different countries. One bottle is valued at $700 and another at $300 (not pictured). It is suspected the majority of the wines are valued at over $100 each.

A set of large field or naval binoculars have been recovered that are very unusual.

Several tools marked with spray paint form part of the haul.

A number of electrical tools have been recovered, including an uncommon large blue multimeter.

Detective Sergeant Terry McCulloch said:

This was a prolific burglar and the detectives who recovered the stolen property filled a van and four cars with the haul.

We ended up filling three offices with outboard motors, motor cycle gear, electrical items and basically anything you would find in a shed.

Search CrimeView For 61732840

A lot of the property has been returned to owners through a process of matching items with burglary reports on our crime databases.

The frustrating thing is we still have property in one office and cant confirm the owners.

Anyone who thinks the property in the images might belong to them is asked to contact Tasmania Police on 131444 or Bellerive CIB on 61732840

Periodically, a fact is so self-evident that to state it can make its obviousness seem startling. This, for example: There is no force in public life more destructive than Tony Abbott.

For almost a decade, since he first became opposition leader, Tony Abbott has held Australia to ransom. He has trashed four parliaments. None were better for his presence in them.

His solitary skill is damage. He has wrecked institutions, torn down careers. He has ridiculed the rule of law and coarsened the realm of debate. He has governed against minorities and indulged himself at the expense of duty.

In opposition, he was driven by entitlement, by a loon-eyed belief that he had been anointed to higher office. Here was a man whose mother believed he would be pope or prime minister. Ill discipline denied him the former and cost him the latter.

Global Meltdown? Nuclear Powers Annus Horribilis "IndyWatch Feed National"

This year will go down with 1979 (Three Mile Island), 1986 (Chernobyl) and 2011 (Fukushima) as one of the nuclear industrys worst ever and theres still another six months to go, writes Dr Jim Green.

Two of the industrys worst-ever years have been in the past decade and there will be many more bad years ahead as the trickle of closures of ageing reactors becomes a flood the International Energy Agency expects almost 200 reactor closures between 2014 and 2040.

The likelihood of reactor start-ups matching closures over that time period has become vanishingly small.

In January, the World Nuclear Association anticipated 18 power reactor start-ups this year. The projection has been revised down to 14 and even that seems more than a stretch. There has only been one reactor start-up in the first half of the year according to the IAEAs Power Reactor Information System, and two permanent reactor closures.

http://bit.ly/2sparkkebubbles

The number of power reactors under construction is on a downward trajectory 59 reactors are under construction as of May 2017, the first time since 2010 that the number has fallen below 60.

Pro-nuclear journalist Fred Pearce wrote on May 15: Is the nuclear power industry in its death throes? Even some nuclear enthusiasts believe so. With the exception of China, most nations are moving away from nuclear existing power plants across the United States are being shut early; new reactor designs are falling foul of regulators, and public support remains in free fall. Now come the bankruptcies. The industry is in crisis. It looks ever more like a 20th century industrial dinosaur, unloved by investors, the public, and policymakers alike. The crisis could prove terminal.

Betting The Farm (And The Planet) On Alan Finkels Big Battery Adventure "IndyWatch Feed National"

The debate over Australias energy requirements rages on. Geoff Russell weighs in on a crucial report dropped last month.

About 10 minutes into Chief Scientist Alan Finkels speech to the National Press Club following the launch of his long awaited report, Blueprint for the Future: Independent Review into the Future Security of the National Electricity Market, he said:

Repurposing [mobile phone]batteries has enabled manufacturers to configure grid scale batteries. These are now being deployed internationally at a level and cost that were unimaginable 5 years ago.

Some things can be true, but nevertheless misleading. Finkel sees a big role for batteries in helping Variable Renewable Energy (VRE) sources, like wind and solar, to meet what he calls a Generator Reliability Obligation (GRO). Finkel understands the security problems of our grid very well. Security here means freedom from load shedding, blackouts, damaging frequency and voltage swings.

Traditionally, baseload generators were huge lumps of spinning metal whose inertia dampened the response of the system to people turning on machines, air-conditioners and the like. This was so much a part of the system that these attributes were little recognised.

Alan Finkel, Australian Chief Scientist, delivers his opening statement at 2016 IAEA Scientific Forum Alan Finkel, Australian Chief Scientist, delivers his opening statement at 2016 IAEA Scientific Forum Nuclear Technology for the Sustainable Development Goals, at the 60th General Conference, Vienna, Austria in September 2016. (IMAGE: Dean Calma/IAEA, Flickr)

These days, inertia and frequency control are considered as special needs which cant be taken for granted but must be provided. Its like owning a vehicle and taking its availability for granted. But when you dont own one, the response time of taxis or ubers or the borrowing of a mates vehicle becomes a crucial quantity which you have to be concerned about and manage.

Availability may even spawn special deals like: Do you want to pay $20/month to have a guaranteed 5 minute taxi/uber response time? Such questions have no meaning when you own a vehicle. With electricity systems, once yo...

Israeli Blacklist of US Rabbis Points to Widening Rift The Rabbis Deemed Kosher for Conversions by Israels Rabbinate: The Full List "IndyWatch Feed National"

JERUSALEM Israels rabbinical authorities have compiled a blacklist of overseas rabbis whose authority they refuse to recognize when it comes to certifying the Jewishness of someone who wants to get married in Israel.

The list includes a number of prominent Orthodox rabbis. Among them are a social activist in New York who has advocated for greater rights for women, a Canadian rabbi who is friendly with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and a close colleague of the rabbi who converted Ivanka Trump.

The list of 160 rabbis is another sign of a deepening rift between overseas Jewish communities and Israeli religious authorities.

ITIM, a liberal religious group that obtained the list, says it does not know how the chief rabbinate compiled the names. The rabbinate did not respond to requests for comment.

Bears beware? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Truthers beware

A quick one for the unemployment 'truthers' out there!

Quite a plethora of pundits have opined over recent years that the official ABS employment figures are "fake", while the "real" numbers are published by Roy Morgan Research, mainly because Roy Morgan uses a different methodology and typically records a higher unemployment rate.

These good folks will no doubt be conspicuous by their absence this month, though!

Roy Morgan reported total employment searing +576,000 higher over the year to a record high of 12,330,000.

Notably full-time employment increased by +308,000 to a record 8,100,000.

That's annual employment growth of +5 per cent.

Holy moly...


If the ABS survey follows suit then expect to see employment growth picking up the pace as 2017 continues, which would also mirror business surveys and job vacancies indicators.

Eve was born in New South Wales and moved to Tasmania with her family in January of 1989.

Eve was 14 years old when she went missing. Eve was a grade 8 student at Glenora District High School.

ASKEW.png

At the time of being reported missing her family indicated that she was wearing a distinctive tracksuit.

Investigations at that time included a series of extensive searches being conducted in the vicinity of the family residence and interviewing known friends and associates. No further evidence as to the fate of Eve was discovered and she has not been seen nor heard from by any person since.

Police conducted further investigations into Eves disappearance in 2001, however, those enquiries failed to resolve this matter.

I Met My Soulmate in Bali 11 Years Too Young "IndyWatch Feed National"

I have three rules I attempt to live by:

  1. Dont hook up with boys when youre drunk. Youre not 18 anymore.
  2. Dont give blowjobs. Theyre gross and he definitely doesnt deserve it.
  3. For the love of god, dont hook up with men twice your age.

We met on the dance floor at my favourite beach bar in Canggu, Bali. In my six long island-deep mind, he looked like the latest hunk on The Bachelor. But he was awkward, couldnt dance and was wearing hideous senior citizen-esqe sandals. I couldnt resist making fun of him. Rule number 1 was ready to be broken. I told him to never wear the shoes again and showed him how to slut drop (his consistent lack of coordination was strangely endearing). We danced all night, walked along the beach chatting, and closed the night by breaking rule number 2.

He was 37 and one year off being exactly twice my age. Strike number 3.

My night of breaking my own personal boy gospel had come to an end, all for a man I didnt know I was looking for.

He was intelligent, kind and funny. He had passions, hopes and dreams and most importantly, he had his shit together: he was a neurologist from Norway on his way to Melbourne to help out with some epilepsy research (read: every wet dream Ive ever had morphed into one).

The morning after we met, I was sitting in a caf having breakfast with my girlfriends, fielding questions of where I had disappeared to the night before. He came up behind me mid escapade-retelling and I was mortified. He mustnt have heard (or the old age was really catching up on his hearing ability), because he still asked me out on a date that evening in front of the girls. They screamed with excitement; I went bright red and agreed to go to a temple with him.

Im not sure why I said yes. I assumed it was over when we left the beach apparently dating is different in the old folks homes in Norway. Maybe it was the money, the success that drew me in. All I know for sure is that it wasnt his shoe taste I found appealing.

The temple portion of the date was awkward. He was wearing another pair of hideous shoes with nude brown socks halfway up his calves which I made him remove and old man sunglasses. I felt like I was on holiday with my father as he took photos of every goddamn palm tree we passed. I saw all 50 snaps on his Facebook later. They were all shit....
