A 25 year old man from Kings Meadows has this morning been charged with Manslaughter following the investigation into a fatal motor vehicle crash on Evandale Road, Western Junction on 7th November 2014.

The professional standards review into the incident continues.

The man will appear in the Launceston Magistrates court this morning.

TAS Charge over burn off fire "IndyWatch Feed National"

Wednesday, 10 December 2014 11:57 am.

On 15 November 2014, members from the Tasmania Fire Service responded to a large fire in the Campania area.

The fire was the result of a landowner conducting burn offs. It will be alleged the landowner failed to take all reasonable precautions prior to the commencement of his burns which resulted in the fire spreading to neighbouring properties.

TAS Theft of thebaine poppies "IndyWatch Feed National"

Thursday, 11 December 2014 4:20 pm.

A number of thebaine poppies have been stolen from a poppy farm near New Norfolk in the States south.

The theft, which occurred between December 2 and December 10, is being investigated by detectives from the Drug Squad with the support of the Poppy Advisory and Control Board and field officers.

Detective Acting Inspector Craig Joel said:

A significant amount of the States poppies are high in thebaine but low in other opiates.

Thebaine is a toxic substance and the death of a young man earlier this year at Oatlands and another in 2012 at Lewisham show how tragic the consequences can be if poppies are misused.

Trespassing on poppy fields and the possession of poppies and poppy products is illegal with substantial penalties for offenders.

There is no difference in appearance between thebaine and morphine poppies, and while the theft of poppies from poppy farms is traditionally sporadic, there is still a need to raise awareness of misusing the poppies.

Anyone who might have information about the theft, or who is offered poppies or poppy products, is asked to contact Tasmania Police on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.

As has also been seen in rapidly tightening Melbourne, the trend in middle ring reported vacancies in Sydney has been getting tighter and tighter.

Rental vacancy rates are tracking at just 1.4 per cent for the middle ring.

That figure for the middle ring has now formed a multi-year downtrend, despite record apartment completions.

As a result, apartment rents have been rising sharply in both cities.

SOS! Planetary emergency "IndyWatch Feed National"

It was great to see Students of Sustainability back in full force in July 2017. Held in the politically active community of Newcastle that hosts the worlds largest coal port the commitment to climate justice was evident as one of the strong themes that were touched on along with just transitions, an ongong commitment to sovereignty and treaty as well as strong social justice themes.

We ran workshops on legal education for activists, live tweeting for actions and events, creative activism and a discussion on the recent win to save the Beeliar wetlands in WA that we supported. We are excited that we might be seeing new activist legals collective forming in Queensland.

It was brilliant to see experienced Newcastle activists supporting a new wave of younger student activists in a powerful, nonviolent day of action that saw 11 bank branches closed in the region with the Commonwealth bank refusing to meet community concerns regarding their possible funding of the Adani coal mine. #StopAdani

Here is a great example of some of our tips on live tweeting getting picked up by participants and making their way into international media!

Love your work SOS and ASEN! Even though we are in a planetary emergency, there is hope for the future. Great to see such a well attended and excellent event yet again. Find out more about our friends at Australian Student Environment Network here.

1. The non-government sector is immediately wealthier if the government issues bonds to match its net spending (relative to not issuing them at all).



2. When a country runs a small current account deficit and the private domestic sector is saving overall, the government cannot run a surplus.

A Question of Accountability: Cardinal Pell, the Vatican and Child Abuse "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Catholic Church, much in the manner of a modern corporation, is a sprawling edifice of operations and functions.  To hold part of it accountable for abuses against human, bank account, or country has presented a formidable legal obstacle.

This nightmare has taken place amidst a broader question: the extent Church officials believe they are accountable to secular justice, or those ordained by the Church itself.  St. Augustines point was clear enough: of the two sovereignties that of the City of Man, or that of God the latter would prevail.

Apologies for the specific issue of clerical child abuse have issued over the last decade. In 2003, Pope John Paul II, hardly a man known for his progressive tidings, suggested there was no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young. In July 2008, Pope Benedict XVI, on a visit to Australia, issued a specific apology for the past abusive conduct by the churchs Australian clergy, demanding reparations and punishment as a response. But the wheels of justice have not so much grinded slowly as indiscernibly.

In an unprecedented move, Cardinal George Pell, termed by author Gianluigi Nuzzi the ambitious bulldog from Sydney, and one present at the penitent moments of Benedict XVIs apology, has made his way to Australia to face what are termed historical sex offences.

The paving was already taking place, with police investigating complaints about alleged offences that occurred in the Victorian town of Ballarat in the 1970s. In October, three Victoria Police detectives ventured to Rome to interview Pell, who voluntarily participated in an interview regarding allegations of sexual assault.

Previous high-ranking Catholic figures have found themselves prodded by legal scrutiny, albeit ineffectively.  Cardinal Archbishop Bernard Law of Boston received the special attention of the Boston Globe in 2002 which exposed the extensive nature of cover-ups on the subject of child abuse.  The Massachusetts attorney-general thought it wise to investigate claims of sex abuse in the church.

Laws case is an instructive one in terms of evasion, deflection and ultimately, the use of institutional cover to protect those accused of either being directly involved in child abuse, or being complicit after the fact.  The attorney-generals report released in 2002 took the Cardinal to task over choices that allowed the abuse to continue. But the cardinal had a get out of gaol card: mandatory reporting laws regarding abuse had were not introduced till 2002.

Pope John Paul II, despite his fragile state, was also quick off the mark in w...

Premiere: Dom Youdan makes a bold first impression with debut single Dont Love Me "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Listening to the debut effort from Sydneys Dom Youdan, he makes this whole music thing seem easy and, for him at least, maybe it is. Because, as an indie bedroom artist working a full-time job, hes managed to put together his first five-track EP and score a UK record deal off his own back.

Its not surprising, really, when you hear his swelling, emotive debut Dont Love Me, which laments the lack of reciprocal love weve all felt harshly stung by at one point or another or at least the illusion of it while also telling the other side of the story.

This song captures the whirlwind of an early relationship, but also highlights the insecurities we all feel, Dom explains. I worked with close friend and fiercely talented Bec Sandridge, to really represent a females perspective in the second verse. The sentiment needed to be unilateral and androgynous.

This is the first weve heard from the fledgling artist, as he prepares for the release of his debut EP Tigerlily in September, and were looking forward to hearing what else he has up his sleeves for us.

Before then, hell be launching his first single on Wednesday July 19 at Sydneys Brighton Up Bar, with Luke Davison (The Preatures) and Luke Liang (Japanese Wallpaper/Nicole Millar) in his live band.

BREAKING NEWS: Greens Scott Ludlam Resigns After Dual Citizenship Revealed "IndyWatch Feed National"

Late this afternoon, West Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam announced via his official Facebook page his resignation from parliament.

You can read it here.

Below is the message Ludlam posted and well bring you more info as the story develops.

Recently it was brought to my attention that I hold dual citizenship of Australia and New Zealand. Under Section 44 of the Australian constitution I am therefore ineligible to hold elected office in the Federal Parliament.

I apologise unreservedly for this mistake. This was my error, something I should have checked when I first nominated for preselection in 2006. I have no wish to draw out the uncertainty or create a lengthy legal dispute, particularly when the Constitution is so clear. I am resigning as Senator for Western Australia and Co-Deputy Leader of the Australian Greens, effective today.

I am personally devastated to learn that an avoidable oversight a decade ago compels me to leave my colleagues, supporters and my wonderful team. You are the people who entrusted me as your candidate and sent me to parliament, and you are the people who turned out in force as we fought an unprecedented by-election in 2014. You supported me through the challenges of the past year and gave me the strength to return to the political arena. You know who you are, and Ill never forget your support.

http://bit.ly/2sparkkebubbles

I was born in Palmerston North New Zealand, left the country with my family when I was three years old, and settled in Australia not long before my ninth birthday. I was naturalised when I was in my mid-teens and assumed that was the end of my New Zealand citizenship.

Ive been incredibly fortunate to serve these past nine years in the Australian Senate. The scruffy kid who cut his teeth at the Jabiluka uranium blockade was honoured last week to speak in the United Nations plenary on the historic nuclear weapons ban. Its not a bad way to go out.

The Australian Greens will continue to be strong advocates for a cleaner, greener and fairer Australia. Ill find a way to continue making a contribution in some different capacity, but thank you all for sharing this remarkable ride with me.

A Long Time Coming: The Long Paddock "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Zanny Begg, The Bullwhip Effect, 2017 (video still).

  • The Long Paddock :: Canvas: Art & Ideas

Hear about The Long Paddock in this Canvas: Art & Ideas interview.

What do you get when a herd crosses the road? A Travelling Stock Route, apparently.

Travelling Stock Routes and Reserves are historic pathways used for moving livestock across the country in times of drought, flood and fire. The method is like back-burning which supports vegetal regeneration in arid environments. On top of this, the shared-use of these public spaces is overwhelming. Everyone from ornithologists to beekeepers take advantage of the wildlife corridors sutured through them.

Sydney Slickers might kick about in leather-soled R.M.s, but when it comes to outback few know of these important routes worming across our regional landscapes.

TSRs are testimony to our colonial heritage and come with a complex suite of issues that have remained relatively under-examined outside communities they serve directly.

However, with a recent NSW Government review into the TSRs there seems no better a time to explore these relics for their community value. Joni Taylor, founder of New Landscapes Institute, commissioned nine artists and architects to produce entirely new works that contemplate the TSRs for The Long Paddock, now showing at Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. The collaborators include Zanny Begg, Megan Cope & Bill Buckley, Hayden Fowler, Future Method Studio, Grandeza, Josphine Starrs & Leon Cmielewski and The Wired Lab.

Together, these practitioners burrow into our colonial past to foreshadow a possible future for these TSRs and the landscapes they transverse.

Their status as public space make them fodder for the commons debate that has roots in England, Scotland and Wales: the imperial hea...

News that annual US refugee quota has been filled causing despair on Manus "IndyWatch Feed National"

Reports that the US has exhausted its refugee quota for this year has left refugees still warehoused on Manus Island in despair. More than 8 months have passed since the US refugee resettlement deal was announced, but none of the over 1780 refugees on Manus or Nauru have been resettled in safety. After four years trapped in limbo on remote islands, the men, women and children on Manus and Nauru now fear that time is running out.

Behrouz Boochani, a refugee, journalist and filmmaker currently held on Manus Island said:

This news is frustrating for the refugees here. The US deal has already been clouded with uncertainty, and worry that it is just part of a cruel game. When the deal was first announced it brought people some hope. But day by day that hope has diminished, and now this news brings more disappointment and doubt. Some refugees were recently told they would be sent to the US within weeks, but where does this leave them?

The refugee quota is part of President Donald Trumps controversial travel ban, first announced earlier this year. On 26 June 2017 the Supreme Court of the United States upheld parts of the ban on an interim basis, including the halving of the US refugee intake to 50,000 places, until the matter is heard in full later this year. Next years quota of 50,000 will not commence until 1 October 2017.

 All the men here have families, and four years with no certainty for their future is already too much. The Australian government says it wants to close the detention centre by October and is putting pressure on people to move to East Lorengau, but now we hear the US won't take any more refugees before October 1. How can anyone trust that if they leave the centre they won't be abandoned in PNG? added Mr Boochani.

Imran Mohammad, a refugee, who was just 19 when he was detained on Manus Island said:

News like this makes us feel dead. It defuses the spark of hope that we try to hold on to. It has been four years of waking up to such devastating news and it makes us suffer from chronic and hopeless depression. The uncertainty of our future has always been the same. Sadly, it is getting worse now.

Daniel Webb, Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, has visited Manus Island three times to inspect conditions and meet with the men held there. Mr Webb said:

Our Government says it will bulldoze the Manus camp by 31 October 2017 but there is still nowhere safe for these men to go.

Every single man, woman and child on Manus and Nauru has already lost four years of their life. Every single one of them deserves a future. These lives are in Malcolm Turnbulls hands, not Donald Trumps. After four years of fear, violence and limbo, our government must urgently evacuate every single person trapped on Man...

Australian government to track $100 notes with nano-chips "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Australian government plans to crack down on the black economy by implanting $100 and $50 notes with hi-tech nano-chips so they can be surveilled. No this isnt a futuristic Hollywood movie, this is Australia in 2017. With around 300 million $100 notes in circulation carrying out such a task seems almost impossible to derive any value, let alone a waste of time and tax payer money.

Simon Lethlean and Richard Simkiss, senior AFL executives, resign over inappropriate relationships "IndyWatch Feed National"

Its a pity Kerry Tokes and Seven Media doesnt take a leave out of AFL head offices book and clean up its corporate culture.

ABC News Australia

Simon Lethlean and Richard Simkiss, senior AFL executives, resign over inappropriate relationships

14 July 2017

Two senior AFL executives, Simon Lethlean and Richard Simkiss, have resigned from their positions for inappropriate relationships with two younger women who work in the AFL industry.

Leathlean was the AFLs football operations manager and Simkiss the leagues commercial manager.

There were two men on my senior executive team who had inappropriate relationships with two younger women who work in the AFL industry, AFL chief executive Gillon McLachlan said.

Im not going to talk to specific details about anything other than to say, Ive got a duty of care to a lot of people here.

The men have taken accountability for their actions. Theyve owned these issues.

McLachlan said the AFL had been making meaningful strides forward in commitment to women in the game, and this was a situation that could not be taken lightly.

The journey were on for a more equal and respectful workplace must be more than just two words. It must be backed up with action and with change, he said.

Id say that we have more women than ever work in our industry, more women than ever work in head office. Three of the nine management team that report to me are women, they are owning this agenda with us.

We feel that weve addressed the issues strongly today. And well continue to make change because its a journey and were not where we want to be yet.

McLachlan confirmed Andrew Dillon would step in as acting football manager, and Darren Burcher would take over as acting commercial manager.

He said AFL House would be reeling for a while after the news, but stressed that upholding standards within the AFL was more important than morale.

It will have an impact for a period, no doubt, Im not going to shy away from that. This is a tight knit organisation, McLachlan said.

But I also know that there are expectations and that people expect them to be upheld.

So thats what, in the end, is the expectation of me and our leadership team, to the staff. The staff hold the standards we set.

Increase of spying in Australia announced in London "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Adam Carlton

While in London, Malcolm Turnbull let out that Australias spy bodies will be re-organised and integrated under a single office.

It is possible that a new Home Office will be created, which would include ASIO, and the Australian Border Force and likely fall under the immigration portfolio. The idea is not new. It has come up a few times in the recent past, but never implemented. But the fact that it was mentioned overseas on a major platform, suggests that it might now be coming closer to being a fact.

The focus is to ratchet up the capacity to deal with the claimed terrorist threat. In doing this, Turnbull has compared Australia to Great Britain, which has been experiencing attacks. That country is more vulnerable, because of its history as a world power, former of colonies and an aggressive international policy stance. Although Australia shares in the political aggressiveness, we are not a power in the world and the comparison is foolish.

Even if this was not the case, relying too much on policing as the strategy for minimising attacks is not working anywhere and is therefore questionable. It is not hard to find the reason for this, so long as you want to.

Marginalising a section of the population and making them feel alienated, powerless and victims of a ruthless system, provides a steady stream of recruits. The crusade against Islam does this.

This has been going on in Australia as well.

Coupled with anti-terror laws that are in practice aimed at a specific population, not in terms of what the targets may have done, but on the accident of birth and faith, has contributed significantly to the problem. When Australias spy organisations are turned to the same use, it is worse still.

This is a good reason why the ratcheting up of Australias domestic spying is a bad thing.

Add Australias abysmal treatment of refugees. This involves the spies and activists are being targeted as well as the boat people. And here is a link that threatens the broad Australian community. Extend the quantity and level of spying and we are all the target.

The argument that if you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear doesnt wash, when the assessment is not based on carrying out illegal action, but on a perceived opinion.

Governments facing rising instability and uncertainty about their own future will resort to using the organisations at their disposal and laws, as a political weapon to safeguard political power against critics.

It is already happening. The new metadata law is one example. There are many other ways by which private information is being collected and used. Legal precedents are being laid down that take away the presumption of bein...

Byron shire local David Hancock, who provided this photo of local hazard, says he doesnt really want to be part of the Byron culture of complaint, but surely in terms of road maintenance we can do better than this

This morning I was very close to being swiped by a car that was coming into my lane. I was on a bicycle, turning left, on the very far left of the road, so the incursion was significant.

Heres the crux: yes the driver was swerving to avoid a pothole but my immediate thought was not of the council for not fixing the road, it was that the driver would not have needed to do that if they were going slower.

Potholes dont give us a licence to drive irresponsibly, we are all accountable for our driving and should do so to conditions.

Byron Shire Council has to maintain a huge road to population ratio in an area of the country with extreme rainfall.

I would much prefer to live here with potholes than in a city without them, I just hope our population can be flexible enough to adjust their driving to suit road conditions or perhaps those who cant should move to a metropolis with smooth roads.

Perhaps we could treat the potholes as speed bumps? Goodness knows we all need to slow down a lot more, then instead of having a shire full of lame blame we can really be the shire of chill out, relax, slow down.

100 US small businesses reject ISDS in NAFTA renegotiation "IndyWatch Feed National"

July 14, 2017: more than 100 small business leaders sent a letter to President Donald J. Trump urging the President to ensure that the re-negotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and other global trade pacts does not allow foreign multinational corporations to attack US laws that protect US communities and the environment.

The letter opposes Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) a provision in NAFTA and other trade deals that enables multinational corporations to sue the US government over laws at the local, state, and federal levels that they claim violate their broad investor rights under NAFTA. These laws, which US small businesses must abide by, are intended to protect the health, environmental, and financial well-being of the nation.

Jerry Greenfield, co-founder of Ben and Jerrys ice Cream stated: It is unacceptable that agreements like NAFTA provide vast powers for corporations to sue governments before tribunals of three corporate lawyers. Those corporate lawyers can award unlimited sums to be paid by taxpayers, including for the loss of expected future profits, simply when corporations claim a health or environmental law violates special privileges granted by these agreements.

The business leaders letter and signatories are at: http://greenam.org/trade-letter.

On May 18, Trump notified Congress of his Administrations plans to renegotiate NAFTA, setting in motion a 90-day period before negotiations with Canada and Mexico can begin on August 18. According to trade legislation, the Trump Administration must make public its more detailed plans for the negotiations next week, 30 days before negotiations begin.

Labor backs Kingscliffs 3-storey limit "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Kingscliff and the Tweed Coast. Photo:abovephotography.com.au

NSW Opposition leader Luke Foley is visiting Kingscliff this morning to show Labors support for retaining Kingscliffs long-fought-for three-storey height limit.

The three-storey limit has become a major issue over the years as developer pressure and community wishes collide as the popularity of the coastal town grows.

The issue has been raised in both state and federal parliaments recently.

Mr Foley will be joined for the announcement by shadow minister for the north coast Walt Secord, as well as federal Richmond MP Justine Elliot and Tweed councillor Reece Byrnes at 10.30am at the southern end of Faulks Park on the corner of Marine Parade and Moss Street.

Last month, Tweed Shire Council narrowly passed a motion to place on exhibition a draft development control plan for the town, further tightening the three-storey height control by requiring council officers they not negotiate the three-storey limit upwards with developers in exchange for community benefits.

Cr Ron Cooper at the time told Echonetdaily that the practice was opaque horse-trading where the dollar benefit to the developer is difficult to compare with the dollar benefit to the ratepayer.

Other developers in the area could also demand the same sort of deal.  It is a wide-spread practice among councils.

NSW Greens call on minister to rule out shark cull "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

The Federal Government says it will do whatever it takes to prevent shark attacks. (Wikipedia)

The NSW Greens have called on the state government to rule out the culling of great white sharks in areas such as Ballina where a number of shark attacks have spooked surfers and disrupted business.

NSW Greens Marine and Fisheries spokesperson Justin Field made the call following reports the Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg was considering removing the existing vulnerable and threatened protection status for great white sharks following a CSIRO study due later this year.

Mr Field said the indiscriminate killing of white sharks would not make beaches safer and should not be permitted in NSW.

He has called on NSW Minister Niall Blair to rule out the culling of white sharks in NSW following a report in the Daily Telegraph that claimed the NSW Minister has not ruled out a shark cull following the study results.

The report quotes Lennox-Ballina Boardriders Club president Don Munro saying The cold, hard reality is that their numbers are increasing theres no way anyone can dispute that, and Ballina councillor Phil Meehan saying Targeted fishing may well be the answer to bring shark numbers back to a safe level.

Mr Field said Ministers Frydenberg and Blair suggesting a shark cull in the media long before the CSIRO study was  complete showed they are only interested in whipping up hysteria and fear about sharks with little interest in the scientific evidence.

The facts and science show the risk of a shark bite is extremely rare and healthy shark populations are essential for a healthy ocean, he said today.

Im calling on NSW Fisheries Minister Niall Blair not to give in to the Daily Telegraphs scaremongering and rule out a shark cull in this state.

Shark management has developed and evolved with a suite of effective non-lethal measures including SMART drumlines, community monitoring programs and significant improvements in personal deterrent devices.

Results from the recent trial of SMART drumlines at beaches off the NSW North Coast have found the technology more effective than shark nets in catching and tagging white sharks.

The Top 8 Reasons to Support Sparkke "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sparkkes latest crowdsourcing campaign in support of marriage equality Say I Do ends soon. If you want to secure your share of the first batch of high quality white wine bubbles in a can ever produced in Australia, youve got less than 24 hours. You can get a 4-pack of white wine bubbles in a can for just $35 thats equivalent to a 1.3 bottles of wine.

Anyhoo heres the top 8 reasons to support New Matildas favourite drop

1. Sparkke supports the causes you love

At the Sparkke Change Beverage Company, they wear their values on their sleeves and they put them on their cans. Sparkke has punched on on issues like changing the date of Australia day, supporting refugees, sexual consent and equality for women. Name a beverage company beyond Sparkke that takes on all those issues? You cant. And now Sparkke is supporting marriage equality. You can support those causes and more by supporting Sparkke.

 

2. Its a group of young women taking on the world

If you look at the major beverage companies in Australia, see if you can guess what gender dominates their hierarchies? Lion, a Japanese owned company, has two women in its nine top executives. It has one woman on its board. AbInBev, the largest brewer in the world and the dominant distributor in Australia, lists 21 people in its senior management team. One of them is a woman. It has 15 Board members, two of them are women. Coopers Australias largest homegrown brewer, has six board members, one of them is a woman. All of those companies are headed up by men.

Sparkke, by contrast, is run by a group of young women from Adelaide. Theyre trying to smash corporate gender norms, and thats worth supporting.

 

3. The product quality is outstanding

Sparkke products are overseen by Rose Kentish, Australias first female Winemaker of the Year. Say I Do, Sparkkes white wine bubbles in a can in support of marriage equality is produced by Sarah Lyons, a young queer winemaker from Brisbane (now in Adelaide).

A map showing the road the Catholic Church wanted to buy. (supplied)

The Lismore City Council has decided not to sell a portion of a one-way road that runs through land owned by the Lismore Diocese of the Roman Catholic Church.

Trustees of the church had asked that the council sell a portion of the Brunswick Street, which runs adjacent to Trinity Catholic College and the Catholic Education Office.

Lismore mayor Isaac Smith, who used his casting vote to reject the request, said a majority of the councillors had decided against the sale because of concerns over community access to nearby parks, and the possibility that a fourth river crossing would be built in the area.

Nearby residents had complained that the road closure would result in loss of access to the parklands, and force them to access the park via the busier Orion and Dawson Streets roundabout, which channels all traffic from Bangalow Road into Lismore.

Concerns were also raised about loss of access for emergency vehicles.

And while the river crossing was most likely ten years aways, Cr Smith said the council had already begun collecting contributions towards it.

The crossing would be an important link to the proposed North Lismore Plateau development.

Cr Smith said the council was still waiting for a development application to be lodged for the proposed plateau development.

Were still waiting for a DA and are quite anxious to see it come in, he said.

He is the Go To Man for crowd warm ups on many big TV series including Gruen Nation and Q&A and has toured extensively throughout the USA and Europe.

Lindsay will be joined by support act Anne Howe, who has the ability to tell an outrageous story outrageously but with charisma and finesse.

Audiences adore Annes bawdy humour with stories of her years as a beauty therapist and how she lost her virginity, twice.

In 2009 Anne went to Canberra, where she won the prestigious Green Faces Comedy award and is still the only woman to win this prestigious highly coveted award.

The Adani coal mine will put an endangered finch on a fast track to extinction, experts trying to save it have warned the federal government.

The southern black-throated finch will lose prime habitat to the Carmichael coal mine in Queenslands Galilee Basin and Adanis plan to offset those effects are grossly inadequate, the Black-throated Finch Recovery Team warns in a new report.

Having already lost much of its habitat in the last 30 years, the southern black-throated finch will plummet towards extinction if Adanis proposed Carmichael mine goes ahead as planned, the team has warned the federal environment minister.

COAG ministers ready for energy stoush "IndyWatch Feed National"

CANBERRA [AAP]

The nations energy ministers are readying up for a stoush over a clean energy target, after some states threatened to go it alone if the federal government continues to dally.

The state and territory ministers meeting in Brisbane on Friday will be briefed by members of the Finkel inquiry, electricity market regulators and the consumer watchdog.

The federal government has accepted 49 of the 50 recommendations from the review of the nations electricity market, led by Chief Scientist Alan Finkel, but is still considering a proposal for a clean energy target.

However, some state ministers have said if the commonwealth doesnt get its act together theyll look at implementing a clean energy target without federal involvement.

Federal energy minister Josh Frydenberg has dismissed the threat as political posturing by Labor states.

He believes theres plenty of time because the Finkel report envisaged any new mechanism wont start until 2020.

Industry and business have repeatedly called for an end to energy policy uncertainty as soon as possible.

Mr Frydenberg is also expected to push the states to end bans on gas exploration and extraction at Fridays meeting.

His cabinet colleague Christopher Pyne said state moratoriums are one of the main reasons behind the tripling of gas prices in the last few years.

That is fuelling higher energy prices, he told Nine Network on Friday.

Were stopping gas companies from being able to export their gas until they have provided enough here for domestic users but we need more gas being created.

Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese defended the use of renewable energy, after Liberal backbencher Craig Kelly on Thursday warned people would die because of high prices driven by the technology.

CANBERRA [AAP]

An alleged people smuggler accused of sending more than 200 asylum seekers to Australia has been extradited from Indonesia to a WA court.

Ahmad Zia Alizadah, reported to be Afghan, is the ninth person extradited to face people smuggling charges in Australia since 2008.

Australian Federal Police on Thursday flew him to Perth where hes expected to face court on Friday on 10 people smuggling offences from 2010.

Immigration minister Peter Dutton says Alizadah is alleged to have smuggled more than 200 people on four vessels.

This is a major operation, he told ABC radio.

It is alleged that he accepted payments of up to $10,000 US per person.

Alizadah was arrested in 2015, and Mr Dutton said extradition proceedings between countries always take time.

In a statement with his colleagues, foreign minister Julie Bishop and justice minister Michael Keenan, he said the extradition showed the strength of the relationship between Australian and Indonesian police.

The trio said Indonesian authorities had recently made a number of arrests for people smuggling offences and Australia appreciated Indonesias determined efforts to bring people smugglers to justice.

In reality, any attempt to reach Australia illegally by boat will fail, and we remain committed to pursuing the criminals organising these people smuggling ventures, the ministers said.

They said it had been more than 1,000 days since a successful people-smuggling venture reached Australia.

Turnbull sets out for more pretend free trade deals "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

The Australian prime ministers trip to Europe focused on working trade agreements for with Europe and the United Kingdom.

He is reported to have told the conservative think tank Policy Exchange in London:

The more doors to more markets I can open for Australian business to enter the better. Thats my goal. Free trade and open markets are a big part, a huge part of our 26 years of uninterrupted economic growth.

Opening more markets for Australias exports is a good thing. However, Turnbull turns this on its head and his statement contains two matters that need further comment.

The use of the term free trade agreement, is both misleading and wrong. Australia, as Turnbull implies, has already signed a few. The most important is the one with the United States. It might be a trade agreement, but it is not a free trade agreement. To be this, it would have to involve equal rights and obligations on both sides.

This is not the case here. The United States does not have open borders,   is heavily protectionist especially when it comes to primary produce, which happens to be one of Australias primary exports. American farmers are highly protected. Australia also faces on the export of manufactured goods.

At the same time, there is an open door for the United States to export to Australia.

This is possible, because the United states mainly exports banking and investment.

It happens that the main exports commodities of the of this country are banking and investment capital. In the current economic climate, this has primarily been used to take over existing companies in Australia, fund speculative bubbles, create debt and export the wealth of the country back to the United States often via tax free havens. As a small player in the financial market, Australia is unable to compete.

Whatever the writing of the trade deal document, this one-sided arrangement can be imposed, because the United States is a powerful economy and Washington has the political clout to get its way.

It is also one sided because Australias politicians Have been too busy genuflecting to bother too much about making sure that the interests of the bulk of the Australian population are secured.

Lismore horse death prompts Hendra virus warning "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Inoculation remains the best method of protecting horses against Hendra according to DPI veterinarians. Photo AAP Image/Dave Hunt

Horse owners are being urged to vaccinate their animals against the Hendra virus after an unvaccinated horse had to be euthanised near Lismore recently.

The NSW Department of Primary Industries chief veterinary officer Dr Christine Middlemiss said horse owners should take all steps they possibly can to reduce the risk of their horses becoming infected with Hendra virus.

She said the owners of the 11-year-old gelding at a property near Lismore had noticed the animal was lethargic, not eating properly, and was wobbly on its feet.

Samples from the horse were sent by a private veterinarian for laboratory analysis at DPIs Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute and when the virus was confirmed, the horse was put down last Saturday.

Dr Middlemiss said there had been a case of Hendra virus in the area before.

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

She said horse owners should discuss a vaccination strategy with their private veterinarian, as vaccination remains the most effective way of reducing the risk of Hendra Virus infection in horses.

Vaccinating your horse also protects your animals, and you and your family, she said.

Its also important that good biosecurity and personal hygiene measures are practiced.

Horses should 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.

Hendra virus can cause a range of symptoms in horses. Usually there is a sudden fever and either respiratory or neurological illness.

Dr Middlemiss said if your horse is unwell, people and other animals should be kept away from the animal and your private veterinarian immediately.

If your veterinarian is unavailable you can call a District Veterinarian with the Local Land Services or the Animal...

Alf Demasi takes on an alter ego of Fra Alfonso, a Renaissance monk, to unravel the mystery of the Devil in music. Photo supplied.

Music, drama and the imagination will be at the centre of the production, A Devilish Tale, that is being performed in Murwillumbah at the Regent Cinema on Saturday July 22 to raise money for the Uki refugee project.

This will be the third concert to raise funds for the project that has been running for the last five years. Each year over two seperate weekends around 35 refugees, mostly from the Brisbane area, are brought down to Uki for friendship visits.

It came about because everyone felt the same way about how refugees were being treated in Australia, said Tina Wilson who helps coordinate the project.

We asked ourselves what a small town could do to help and this is what we came up with.

Each of the weekends there is a mix of refugees who have visited before and some that havent.

Some of the people who have been previously are now billeted out to families that they know in Uki while others are put up in the hotel. It has been an absolutely fantastic experience for everyone.

A Devilish Tale combines a stage production, experimental musical improvisation and the delights of the Murwillumbah Philharmonic Choir to tell the story of the history of western harmony.

Therell be lots of visuals, music and humour within the show, said author and illustrator and performer Matt Ottley.

Alf Demasi, a renowned keyboard player from Western Australia, takes on an alter ego of Fra Alfonso, a Renaissance monk, to unravel the mystery of the Devil in music.

Alf plays a rather irreverent monk whose preoccupation with the Devil illuminates the forces that have driven the development of western music, continued Matt.

TAS Historic missing person case "IndyWatch Feed National"

Friday, 28 November 2014 4:30 pm.

Tasmania Police is actively investigating new information in relation to the disappearance of a man from the Tasman Peninsula 31 years ago.

Police have been joined by Mr Mattathyahus family members in appealing for more information ahead of a Coronial Inquest to be held in two weeks time (15 and 16 December).

Judah Zachariah Rueben Wolfe Mattathyahu (Born 27 July 1934) was last seen alive on 12 November 1983, at a property at Black Jack Road, Slopen Main, on the Tasman Peninsula. At that time, Mr Mattathyahu lived alone in a hut on a farming property.

On Friday 11 November 1983, Mr Mattathyahu made arrangements with friends to be transported from Slopen Main to Huonville on Saturday 12 November 1983. At 9.30pm on the Saturday evening a friend arrived at Slopen Main to collect him, but there was no sign of Mr Mattathyahu.

Mr Mattathyahu has not been seen since. He has not accessed bank accounts nor contacted friends or family.

Although it was considered unusual that Mr Mattathyahu was not at Slopen Main at the arranged pick-up time, it was not, given his lifestyle, initially suspected by his associates that his disappearance was unusual.

Given his nomadic lifestyle and the fact he had no family residing in Australia; it wasnt until 4 March 1984 that Mr Mattathyahu was reported missing by friends. His disappearance was investigated as a Missing Person investigation.

Investigations at that time included a series of extensive searches in the vicinity of his residence and interviewing known friends and associates. No further evidence as to the fate of Mr Mattathyahu was discovered.

Recently, Police investigations have uncovered new information about the case that is central to the investigation.

We cant release details about the information, however it does relate to a person of interest in the disappearance of Mr Mattathyahu, said Detective Senior Sergeant Richardson.

There has been a wall of silence surrounding this case. Someone knows something, and the family members or friends of that person may have suspicions or information. We are appealing to those people to contact us.

Police have also identified relatives, including his ex-wife in the U.K. and half-brothers in Australia, who want to know what happened to Mr Mattathyahu. Mr Mattathyahus mother recently died in the U.K. aged 93.

Every day for the past 31 years, Elsie waited for her son to make contact, but she died this year never knowing what happened to him, said Mr Mattathyahus ex-wife, Liz Glenday.

On behalf of the family, one of Mr Mattathyahus half-brothers said:

Cover it up might be overstating it, really. Indeed, the evidence suggests that the Australian forces who were present at the killings just plain never reported them up the chain of command, and it was only because local villagers found the bodies that those deaths became public knowledge.

Indeed, the evidence suggests that the Australian forces who were present at the killings just plain never reported them up the chain of command, and it was only because local villagers found the bodies that those deaths became public knowledge.

This comes as Australias Inspector General is already investigating the special forces over other unlawful killings, and that those special forces were killing so many civilians they routinely carried spare drop weapons with them just to plant on the corpses to make it look like they were combatants.

The investigations serve as just another embarrassment from the perspective of Australias military, but also appears to be the result of broad changes in the priorities and tactics of the US and its coalition allies in fighting in Afghanistan, as they moved away from the clear and hold tactics of the wars first decade.

Those familiar with the situation say that once clear and hold was abandoned, the collateral damage of raids stopped being a major concern for the troops since they werent going to be there after the operation anyhow, and that often helicopter-based raids became land, kill, and leave.

This attitude was plainly in evidence when the Australian forces engaged...

Trillions of dollars missing from DOD, NASA, and HUD "IndyWatch Feed National"

Former US Assistant Housing Secretary and Publisher of the Solari Report Catherine Austin Fitts joins me to discuss the TRILLIONS of dollars missing from the coffers of the DOD, NASA and HUD.

Catherine says that the same forces the have looted our nation are also interested in destroying the US Constitution. Fitts explains:

The people who run this country want to implement slavery. They believe in slavery. They practice slavery. They will chip you. They will take your kids and use them for pedophilia, they will try to make pedophilia legal.

Catherine Austin Fitts continues:

So were talking about a group of people whose values are what we would define as completely Luciferian. If we let them tear up the Constitution, any decent life that youve ever known, you can just kiss it goodbye.

And be sure to stay tuned until the 33:20 mark for a shocking 60 Minutes Australia expose that exposes the elite pedophile ring within the highest echelons of the Australian and UK governments, including MI-6.

Four Bees: Archaeology in and Around Gosford "IndyWatch Feed National"

Four Bees: Archaeology in and Around Gosford

By Steven & Evan Strong

Warning: This Article mentions the Name of a Deceased Australia Original Elder

For some time our focus has been on the larger Standing Stones and smaller marked and magic rocks, so much so that it may seem we are obsessed by rocks. Our critics, and some more sympathetic, have most certainly suggested we look elsewhere. To allay concerns that we only do rocks, we have selected four sites which do break that tradition. So it is out with rocks that stand or are mobile, to be replaced by stationary markings on four rocks/platforms. Instead of talk about markings on rocks as before, we now intend to investigate four sites that contain markings on rocks.

No doubt there may be a few readers who may see a contradiction in abandoning the study of marked rocks preferring instead to investigate marks on rock, at first glance it all seems the same. Not from our perspective, we are always looking on the margins, the rocks we are now discussing are unable to move, the rocks studied before can be moved or were illegally removed and hidden behind a curtain of apathy. It is a fine pedantic distinction in deleting an s" when wading neck deep in rocks of every type, nonetheless any change in course, be it ever so slight, will be welcomed and claimed as such.

All four sites under consideration are found in the Gosford/Blue Mountains area, to be any more specific unless the site is well known achieves no purpose beyond making it a target for vandals and those who wish to hide the past. The information to be presented spans six years,  beginning with some incredibly important historical facts found within some Original wisdom that was filmed and recorded by the Ancient Aliens" crew barely a year ago, but was lost on the editor"s floor. The other three are older, but were never fully understood at the time and with the gathering of so much more knowledge and rocks, deserve an up-date and the chance to be put into proper context. The four sites to be discussed were chosen for two reasons, each challenges fundamental historical assumptions that is not just local but global, but more importantly, they pay homage to the very beginning of a hybrid between one type of hominid residing in Australia and beings from a distant constellation. Secondly, even if by one degree of separation, all sites share a connection to the letter B.

The first of the four to be examined is the oldest from our selection. It was chosen to lead off as it serves two purposes in confirming amazing technology was being used in this country long ago, and questions where the knowledge and inspiration came from.

Yet Another Massive Pedophilia Network Busted in Germany: 87,000 Member Dark Net Exposed "IndyWatch Feed National"

darkpedoIf you arent already gob smacked by the number of pedophilia stories that have continually come to light in recent months, you will be now.

The ink is hardly dry on the story exposing massive sexual abuse and child trafficking by one of the worlds most prominent Vatican officials, and now investigators have stumbled upon a massive Dark Net pedophilia network that has bene in operation since 2016, with almost 90,000 active members.

According to German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle, the Dark Net, a portion of the Internet where normal search engines dont categorize information or sites, there has been a massive network of pedophilia action taking place using advanced encryption software.

Almost all of the 87,000-plus users of Elysium were from Germany and Austria.

With story after story of pedophilia rings running underground, it can become mind-numbing to consider the unsettling ways in which the elite have been keeping their puppets in check. By forcing children younger than toddlers into a life of oppressive abuse they are easily manipulated later for political and psycho-social special interests, as their psyches are so utterly damaged.

Just a few of the latest pedophilia busts reported include:

  • FBI/Europol case, 350 pedophiles busted shortly after the arrest of Playpen creator, Stephen Chase. Chase will now spend at least 30 years in prison.
  • Cardinal George Pell, the Vaticans 3rd highest ranking official is linked to child pornography and pedophilia, and must return to his native Australia to defend himself against the charges.

Part 44 D. Australias irrelevant Crimes against humanity. The 3rd letter to justice Macaulay pointing out that the Manus Island nolle contendere settlement may have wide-ranging unintended consequences. "IndyWatch Feed National"

Put simply, some 250,000 are dead, because politicians lied to us and there needs to be an accounting for the Run, Hide, Call harm cause by that lie.

The deaths of Kirsty Boden, Sara Zelenak and Faysal Ishak Ahmed are all direct consequences of the Iraq has weapons of Mass Destruction deception of the Liberal-National Coalition in 2002 and 2003. These deaths, along with approximately 250,000 other deaths since the March 2003 illegal invasion of Iraq raise serious questions about the legal liability of John Howard and his Cabinet in regard to the deaths that coroners inquests in the United Kingdom will have to consider because of the Chilton Reports finding that there was never any evidence that justified the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

NOTE: The short link URL for this posting is: http://wp.me/p1n8TZ-154

In Australia, the nolle contendere settlement of the Manus Island class action could also have further legal implications that add extreme complexity to the legal quagmire that surrounds the issue of legal liability for decades of human rights violations by the Australian Parliament.

Please note: this letter to Justice Macaulay is almost 21,000 words in length and contains numerous case law references and citations or quotes. If you are a victim of the Robo-Debt fraud, you should attempt to read it. Likewise, if a breached family member or a family member who was a victim of Robo-Debt died as a consequence of these criminal acts, you should read this letter.

Australia needs to lift its game if it wants to play leadership role on worlds top human rights body "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australia needs to improve its human rights track record at home and internationally if it wants to play a true leadership role on the UN Human Rights Council.

Responding to reports that France has withdrawn its candidacy for the UN Human Rights Council meaning Australia and Spain can be elected to the worlds peak human rights body unopposed Emily Howie, a Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, said Australia has work to do in order to fulfill the duties of a Council member.

A seat at the table is one thing, but Australia will want to be taken seriously as a global leader and unfortunately Australias credibility is badly damaged by its track record at home, particularly the treatment of refugees in offshore detention. Australia should prepare for its new position by getting its house in order, said Ms Howie.

The Human Rights Council addresses the gravest abuses facing the world, including in North Korea, Syria and the Central African Republic. However, Australia has at times shown a willingness to turn a blind eye to foreign human rights abuses, particularly where it involves abuses in countries with which Australia relies on to implement its deterrent based asylum seeker policies. Australia has also stubbornly refused to accept advice from Council experts and other UN human rights bodies that Australias treatment of people seeking asylum breaches various aspects of international human rights law.

It is absolutely critical that Council members stand up for victims of human rights abuses, wherever they may be. For the Council to properly protect victims, it needs those strong members who want to uphold human rights to step up, and not just when its in their national interest to do so, said Ms Howie.

Australias position on the Council comes at a time when the United States is retreating from its role as a leader on human rights, and following criticism of some other Human Rights Council member states such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for their extremely poor human rights records.

It is more important than ever that countries like Australia play a strong leadership role on the Council. With the US retreat and other countries attempting to spoil attempts to protect victims of abuses, it is incumbent on middle powers like Australia to do some heavy lifting, said Ms Howie.

Australia is a candidate for a seat on the Human Rights Council for the term 2018-2020. It was originally one of three candidates, including France and Spain, for two seats vacant for the Western European and Others Group. With France withdrawing, Australia is virtually guaranteed a spot, subject to a vote by the UN General Assembly in October 2017.

Fluoride: Tasmanian council says towns should be able to decide what is added to drinking water "IndyWatch Feed National"

Most Australian towns have fluoride added to their water but one council in northern Tasmania is pushing to give towns a vote on whether or not that continues.

Key points:

  • At present Government decides whether fluoride is added to drinking water
  • Fluoride is added water to help keep peoples teeth strong
  • Dr Tsai says both water fluoridation and reduction in sugar consumption is important

Tasmania was the first state in the country to put fluoride into drinking water, back in 1953, with the purpose of helping to keep teeth strong.

At present it is the Government who makes the decision on whether fluoride is added to the states drinking water.

But Kentish Council Mayor Don Thwaites said they wanted that decision to be handed over to councils.

The motion is that councils be allowed to have a vote on whether they want fluoride added to the public water supply or not in their area, he said.

Its not about whether fluoride should be added or not, we believe that thats a debate that can happen after its decided whether we can actually have a vote on the subject or not.

Mr Thwaites said the decision came out of a response to concerns from the community, expressed to them by councillors.

The issue of water fluoridation will be discussed at a statewide meeting of Tasmanian councils later this month.

Benefits have long been acknowledged

Water fluoridation has long been common practice in Australia, and in Tasmania almost every person who has access to treated drinking water receives a fluoridated supply.

Dr Carrie Tsai, a paediatric dentist and lecturer at the University of Sydney, said the benefits have long been acknowledged.

Community-water fluoridation has actually proven to be one of the top public health achievements, according to the Centre for Disease Control in the US, in reducing rates of dental caries especially in children, she said.

Dr Tsai said daily exposure of teeth to fluoridate made them more resistant to decay.

In a sense it makes them a bit harder, and resistant to acid attacks and sugar that comes from the diet, she said.

We definitely advocate it as being a public health measure to decrease the risk for dental caries.

Councillors throw cold water on reigniting fluoridation discussion "IndyWatch Feed National"

Peel councillors recently made it clear they have had their fill of discussion about water fluoridation.

When Brampton Coun. John Sprovieri, an unrelenting anti-fluoride voice on council, suggested reactivation of the Community Water Fluoridation Committee and reigniting public debate on the polarizing issue, his colleagues quickly threw cold water on the idea.

Im not in a big hurry to start this up again, said Mississauga Coun. Carolyn Parrish, whose position was reiterated by others on council.

Parrish is chair of the fluoridation committee established more than a year ago to re-examine the benefits and health risks associated with adding fluoride to the local drinking water supply and recommend a regional position on the long-standing practice.

Last March the committee suspended work after council unanimously approved a recommendation that included continuing water fluoridation.

Council also sent the province a letter that asked for toxicity tests on the additive used to fluoridate local drinking water and requested the government assume responsibility for administering municipal water fluoridation in Ontario.

After five months, councillors are upset there has been no meaningful response from the government.

This is not acceptable, remarked Parrish, who also asked staff to review a recent Australian report on water fluoridation.

Deep In The Heart of Texas "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Texas is as politically divided as the rest of the U.S., but a recurrent crop of crackpots and ideologues has fed its reputation for proud know-nothingism and retrograde thinking.
This is a cracker. And a must-read for political junkies and all who are fascinated and frightened by the absurdities of recent US politics.

This is a cracker. And a must-read for political junkies and all who are fascinated and frightened by the absurdities of recent US politics.

I havent enjoyed a lengthy American fly on the wall opinion piece since Variety despatched a writer to spend time with Lyndsay Lohan on the set of the The Canyons, her doomed porno-thriller (in case you are tempted, and it is indeed a hoot, theres a link to it below).

Lawrence Wrights piece reads like a tragicomical dystopian thriller, and indeed, Thomas Pynchon and Michael Chabon would find some great storylines here. His tale becomes increasingly surreal as the author charts the passions, policies and personalities that collude and collide in this chronicle of the recent legislative session of Texas State House.

It is full of stories short and tall, quips and quotes, and daring and dastardly deeds that would be hilarious and worthy of the best political satires if only they were not actually true! An Austin newspaper columnist recounts the story of an absconding representative: the police tracked him to earth at his mommas house, where he was found hiding in the stereo cabinet. She added, He always did want to be the Speaker. A wannabe Republican candidate for the State Board of Education posts on Facebook that Barack Obama had worked as a male prostitute in his twenties: That is how he paid for his drugs, she reasons, (and) went on to assert that climate change is a ridiculous hoax, and that dinosaurs are extinct because the ones on Noahs Ark were too young to reproduce. Another representative tweets: Top priority for Travis GOP: beautiful Big Titty women!! A former governor once said of then presidential nominee, George H. W. Bush. He cant help it. He was born with a silver foot in his mouth. She wore designer suits but picked her teeth, and she cleaned her fingernails with a Swiss Army knife. Successively opposing the placing of a Christmas manger scene in the state capitol, she said Im afraid soand its a shame, because its about the only time we ever had three wise men in the capitol.

Investors doubling down on Sydney (again)? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

ScoMo's scalpel

Australia's largest mortgage aggregator Australian Finance Group (AFG) reported that APRA's cooling measures had clipped investment lending back to a 31 per cent market share in the March 2017 quarter, down from 40 per cent at the market peak.  

This will doubtless be welcome news for the regulator. 


The average mortgage size, while typically higher through broker channels than for the wider market, has also declined marginally over the past six months. 


Indeed, only Queensland recorded an increase in the average mortgage size in the June 2017 quarter.


AFG reported that non-major lenders have helped to close some of the void left by the main players, accounting for 35.2 per cent of market share, up from considerably lower levels across recent years. 

Refinancing was also well down, and more borrowers sought to fix their loans, which fixed rate products jumping to 23.7 per cent of new mortgages written.

Who watches the watchers? "IndyWatch Feed National"

From the National Justice project

Aboriginal citizen journalists to use social media to hold police accountable and make communities safer.

A new program has been launched to run training in Aboriginal communities about using mobile phones to document harassment by authorities.

The project known as Copwatch has been developed by the National Justice Project (NJP), a human rights law firm, in response to complaints about over-policing and police abuses in Aboriginal communities. The NJP is currently seeking crowdfunding in order to send human rights lawyers and media professionals to deliver training on using mobile phone technology, social media and the law around safely filming police interactions and other authority figures. Over $20,000 has already been raised in over a week, and the campaign shared over 8000 times on social media.

Training will be provided on invitation only basis, with several Aboriginal communities already expressing strong interest in participating.

Darumbal woman and journalist Amy McQuire said:

Over the course of my career in journalism, I have spoken to countless First Nations people who have been left deeply affected by police brutality and over-policing in their communities.

There are historical reasons why there is such a tense relationship between Aboriginal people and police, and it is not going to be solved by tokenistic platitudes and the occasional good cop. There needs to be justice. There has never been one police officer convicted over a black death in custody, and this is keenly felt across Aboriginal Australia. Copwatch is one way we can begin to help inform Aboriginal communities of their rights, and will give us the tools to keep the police accountable, and help make our communities safer, said McQuire.

End Black Deaths in Custody campaigner Shaun Harris said: I hope that Copwatch will educate and empower our community to enforce rights that everybody has in this country. Anything that amplifies the voices of Aboriginal peoples can only be regarded as positive and part of getting justice for my niece Ms Dhu.

Marwari man Des Jones who heads up the Murdi Paaki Regional Assembly in Western NSW states:

we hear a lot about zero tolerance on crime, Aboriginal peoples need to start having zero tolerance on racism entrenched in government, non-government and industry. We need to use all legal and political avenues available to expose and eradicate racism and abuse, and to bring perpetrators to justice.

Questions surround AFPs response to metadata breach "IndyWatch Feed National"

The following article by John Power (The New Daily 12 July 2017), should raise concern from anyone who values the right not to be put under the microscope of big brother, through a law that gives almost unfettered access to metadata. This means the details of who one communicates with on the internet. Although the law certainly targets the right of journalists to protect their sources, it affects everyone. Reported here, is the case of a breach that has has avoided even the meager safeguards that the government has had to put in place and the inadequacy of the response.

Forty-eight hours before Federal Police assured Australians they had amended internal rules to stop unlawful access to sensitive metadata, they were apparently still operating under guidelines that had led to at least one serious breach.

Written correspondence, obtained exclusively by The New Daily under freedom of information laws, suggests the Force was either telling Australians one thing publicly while doing another internally or that they hastily re-worked guidelines amid public and political pressure for change.

On April 28, AFP Commissioner Andrew Colvin told media that the agency had made significant changes to its internal practices after revealing that an investigator had breached metadata law by accessing a journalists phone records without a warrant.

Commissioner Colvin described the incident as a case of human error.

The AFP had raised the level of internal authorisation needed to access such information, limited the number of officers authorised to approve requests and boosted training to do with officers legal obligations, Commissioner Colvin said.

But in a letter sent just two days earlier, on April 26, AFP Deputy Commissioner Ramzi Jabbour told Commonwealth Ombudsman Doris Gibb that its Aide Memoir outlining the procedures to obtain a Journalist Information Warrant (JIW), issued in 2015, remained accurate.

While stating that internal procedures have been reviewed, the letter makes no reference to any of the reforms publicly announced two days later by Commissioner Colvin.

Instead, it informs the watchdogs office of the AFPs intention to add a prompt to the application form for the specialised warrant. This prompt, according to the letter, would ask the officer if the request is to identify a journalists source, directing him or her to existing guidelines for obtaining a journalist warrant in such cases.

Asked to explain the apparent discrepancy between the letter and public statements, and to clarify what changes had been made, an AFP spokesperson told The New Daily: The process for authorising access to me...

MELBOURNE AAP

The driest June on record for many of Australias productive agricultural regions has hit Australias wheat production, and the high value of the Australian dollar is impacting the return on wine exports, says agricultural banking specialist Rabobank.

In its Agribusiness Monthly report for July, Rabobank says wheat yields have been downgraded in cropping regions in Western Australia, South Australia and northern NSW as crops face moisture deficits.

Meanwhile, although the Australian dollar has slipped considerably against the US dollar since 2011, its rise against the currencies of other wine exporters such as Chile and New Zealand has given Australias competitors a cost advantage.

Part 44 C. Australias irrelevant crimes against humanity. The 2nd national interest letter to Justice Macaulay. "IndyWatch Feed National"

Below is the 2nd national interest letter to Justice Macaulay, the Victorian Supreme Court judge who was given the task of presiding in the Manus Island Class action against the Commonwealth of Australia. My viewpoint is that there should be a formal public inquiry into the human rights atrocities that the Manus Island concentration camp detainees endured.

NOTE: The shortlink URL for this web page is: http://wp.me/p1n8TZ-14F

==========================================================================

Your Honour,

Re: A public interest Facts and Issues submission pertaining to the proposed $90 million settlement of the Manus Island class action.

Further to my previous email on 23rd June 2017 in which I point out that the proposed settlement in the Manus Island class action is not in the public interest and if you have not ratified that settlement, that you should not do so, I submit the following precedents and points of law for your consideration.

Case Law:  Precedents from: The Amalgamated Society of Engineers v Adelaide Steamship Co Ltd (HCA 54; 31st August 1920)

In paragraph 9 of his findings in this case, Justice Higgins stated:

In connection with this subject, much argument has been addressed to sec. V. of the Constitution Actwhat we call the covering sections of the Constitution. It provides that that Act and all laws made under the Constitution shall be binding on the Courts, Judges, and people of every State notwithstanding anything in the laws of any State. I take sec. 51 of the Constitution as defining subject matters for legislation, and covering sec. V. as defining the persons who are to obey the legislation. Once we find a valid Federal lawsay, a law as to trade and commerce with other countriesthe Courts and Judges and people of every State must obey it, whatever the State laws may say to the contrary. Organized bodies of persons, such as incorporated companies or municipal corporations or States, are not mentioned: for they always act through peoplehuman beings: and these human beings have to obey the valid Federal Act, whatever the State law says. The State law is to have no efficacy for them...

Essos Longford labour hire dispute is still on "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed from Victoria

The union dispute at Essos Longford gas plant in Gippsland (Victoria), has been on for weeks and from the worker and union side, the determination to maintain their a presence outside the plant until for a breakthrough, remains as strong as ever.

Essos plant services the companys offshore facilities and platforms in Bass Strait.

A dispute arose, after management told its workers that they had to sign up with MTCT Services, which is a labour hire subsidiary of UGL. This meant the prospect of being re-employed on lower wages and inferior conditions.

An organiser with the Australian Workers Union (AWU) said:

Theyre offering the guys their jobs back but with pay cuts of between 15 per cent and 30 per cent.

Members of the Electrical Trades Union (ETU) and the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union are also involved in the dispute.

Esso is owned by the worlds biggest oil company, the American based Exxon Mobil. This is the sixth biggest company in the world.

About 200 face the loss of their jobs and for those that remain, in addition to a lower pay rate, there would be new two week fly-in, fly-out rosters in the new system, replacing the current one week in, one week out rosters. The concern is that this will have a big negative impact on family life.

There is also a reduction of allowances, including less annual leave loading.

The Esso offer was not accepted and this led to a dispute.

Esso used a legal loophole to try and bring in the contract labour system by suggesting that employees of the contractor in Western Australia had voted for it. Technically, they only need three people to do so. Thus, the situation was set to put pressure on those working at Longford on a one to one basis.

This dispute is like the CUB dispute in Melbourne last year that resulted in a more than 6-month standoff. Management had tried to impose a similar labour hire system. Widespread support for the CUB workers and loss of sales eventually forced the company to back down. And when those who had been on the picket returned to worked they did so under the old collective agreement and on better conditions.

Being another test case for major corporations, to lift the use of labour hire firms as a source of cheap labour, means that this dispute also has wider ramifications.

The battle at Esso could be building up to be the next CUB.

In line with this, the union strategy is to build the base of wider union and community support.

LONDON RAW

One of the biggest icebergs on record has broken away from Antarctica, creating an extra hazard for ships around the continent as it breaks up.

The one trillion tonne iceberg, measuring 5800 square km, calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica sometime between July 10 and 12, said scientists at the University of Swansea and the British Antarctic Survey.

The iceberg has been close to breaking off for a few months. Throughout the Antarctic winter, scientists monitored the progress of the rift in the ice shelf using the European Space Agency satellites.

The iceberg is one of the largest recorded and its future progress is difficult to predict, said Adrian Luckman, professor at Swansea University and lead investigator of Project MIDAS, which has been monitoring the ice shelf for years.

It may remain in one piece but is more likely to break into fragments. Some of the ice may remain in the area for decades, while parts of the iceberg may drift north into warmer waters, he added.

The ice will add to risks for ships now it has broken off. The peninsula is outside major trade routes but the main destination for cruise ships visiting from South America.

In 2009, more than 150 passengers and crew were evacuated when the MTV Explorer sank after striking an iceberg off the Antarctic peninsula.

The iceberg, which is likely to be named A68, was already floating before it broke away so there is no immediate impact on sea levels, but the calving has left the Larsen C ice shelf reduced in area by more than 12 per cent.

The Larsen A and B ice shelves, which were situated further north on the Antarctic Peninsula, collapsed in 1995 and 2002, respectively.

This resulted in the dramatic acceleration of the glaciers behind them, with larger v...

Victoria's new road rules 'interesting' but are not law "IndyWatch Feed National"

The buffoons in government have apparently had a brainstorm and implemented new rules on Victorian roads.

The good people of Australia are told that laws are to be made for "peace, order, and good government" (from a law called the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act).

Thankfully road rules do not fall into any of the above mentioned categories (i.e peace, order or even a law).

The very next day after alleged implementing a road 'rule' that drivers must slow down to 40km/h when passing emergency vehicles a collision occurred on the Western Highway.

So how is that for "peace, order, and good government"?

Well it's not.

It (a road rule) is not even a 'law', i.e. something that you must abide by.

Failure to abide by these road rules apparently carries a fine.

It seems like it's a cash grab from the struggling population.


We recommend any lawful / natural 'person' that obtains a fine from any of the new rules in place to challenge them in a court

See article from 12th of July 2017 by the Fairfax publication of the headline:

The changes to the road rules you might not know about

For the first time in eight years, Victoria has a new set of road rules.

And while most of the do's and don'ts remain the same, there have been a few nips, tucks and tweaks.

Some of the changes have been widely publicised, such as the 40km/h speed limit for driving past emergency vehicles and the new $476 on-the-spot fine for cyclists who use a mobile phone while riding.

Other alterations are a little harder to spot.

At 547 pages long, the full book of traffic regulations is a hefty read. However, the eager beavers at the RACV have helpfully gone through all 408 rules to find what others might have missed.
 
Here's what they found:

Road rule 300 - Use of mobile phones

As mentioned earlier, bicycle riders and those mounted astride a wheeled recreational device (such as a skateboard or scooter) are now not allowed to use a mobile phone.

Flood-ravaged Mullumbimby pool to be opened by 1 September "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

The Mullumbimby pool should be ready in Spring.

The Mullumbimby pool should be ready in Spring.

The Byron Shire Council is using a filtration system from Melbourne to ensure that the Mullumbimby Pool will be open for the spring swimming season.

The Petria Thomas Pool complex was inundated with flood water after Cyclone Debbie, and the council has now received the go-ahead from its insurers to get on with repairs.

Its estimated the cost of damage caused by the flood was $66,000.

Byron Shire Councils Open Space Facilities Coordinator, Pattie Ruck, said a mobile water filtration unit was now operating at the pool and was filtering approximately 200,000 litres of water a day.

The pool holds 1,825,000 litres of water so this is a big job but already we are starting to see the water quality improve, Mrs Ruck said.

He said the mobile filtration unit from Melbourne was able to process 140 litres of water a minute.

We did try to get a filtration unit from a local supplier but the nearest one was on the Gold Coast and they were too busy to help us, Mrs Ruck said.

He said the kiosk was also being repaired after it was damaged by water inundation and that work was expected to be finished in August.

We are aiming to have the pool open on 1 September and the water crystal clear for the first day of the swimming season, Mrs Ruck said.

Liverpool Plains farmers have reacted angrily to the NSW governments buy back of 51.4 per cent of the Shenhua coal exploration license at a cost to tax payers of  $262 million.

Having purchased the exploration license eight and a half years ago for $300 million the license expired in October 2016 and the company has asked the state government for a renewal of the license according to shadow minister for resources, MLC, Adam Searle.

A clause in the exploration license states that if the license holder fails to commence substantial development of a mine within 8 years of the awarding of the original exploration license the Minister may cancel any title in place.

While Shenhua Watermark is free to pursue a new lease, even on a smaller parcel of land, the NSW Government is under no obligation to pay them any money, said Mr Searle.

NSW Opposition Leader, Luke Foley said The license holder has not commenced substantial development of a mine, despite receiving an exploration license almost 9 years ago....

Tara has gained a kilogram since being in the care of Australian Seabird Rescue.

A critically-endangered Hawksbill sea turtle will be returned to the sea tomorrow after being in the care of the Australian Seabird Rescue crew at Ballina for six months.

Nicknamed Tara, the sea turtle was rescued at Yamba on Spooky Beach and after being examined was found to have float syndrome, which is caused by ingesting plastic.

ASR general manager Keith Williams said despite being hungry, the sick turtle was unable to eat for the first week in care.

Tara quickly became known as our fussy eater and whilst in care enjoyed copious amounts of blue pilchards and prawns, Mr Williams said.

Since coming to us in January, Tara has put on close to 1 kilo and is since rid of her float syndrome after being in care for six months.

Mr Williams said Tara would be released at The Pass in Byron Bay on Friday at 10am.

We look forward to watching her swim back out to the ocean towards Julian Rocks where there is plenty of rocky reef and vegetation for her to enjoy, he said.

Mr Williams said the there would be no tours at the Ballina ASR facility tomorrow. Instead, people are invited to join rescuers at The Pass to watch Taras return to the ocean.

Meanwhile, he said Australian Seabird Rescue would be hosting a training workshop for new volunteers on Sunday, 16 July. Anybody interested in becoming a volunteer should attend.

He said the work of the ASR was largely undertaken by volunteers.

Taras rescue, rehabilitation and release could not have happened without them, he said.

Anyone interested in becoming a volunteer should contact Mr Williams on 0418504644.

GOLD COAST AAP

Sea Worlds polar bear cub is a girl and now the Gold Coast theme park wants the public to name her.

The cubs gender had been unknown until recently as shes been closely cared for by mum Liya in a den, but Sea Worlds Trevor Long confirmed the 10-week-old cubs gender on Thursday.

The park, which anticipates moving the cub to a public display some time in September, is now seeking input from the public for a name for their latest attraction.

The little bears gender will also be a significant boost to Sea World staff given her twin also female died in May.

At the time Mr Long said female cubs were prized due to their breeding potential and the cubs death was even more sad due to her gender.

The surviving cub is a half-brother to Henry, the male cub born to Liya at the theme park in 2013.

Henry has since been relocated to a Canadian polar bear habitat with the long-term aim of becoming part of an international breeding group.

Funeral services approved for Lismores Eat Street "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

A funeral parlour was established in Lismore's CBD and now the proponents want to hold services. (file pic)

A funeral parlour was established in Lismores CBD almost two years ago and now the proponents will be allowed to hold services. (file pic)

The Lismore City Council has approved an application from a funeral parlour in Magellan Street to hold up to 50 services a year despite concerns that the business was not suitable for the area.

Back in 2015, the council approved an application for the funeral home in the old  Gundurimba Shire Council building in Magellan Street, which is widely regarded as Lismores Eat Street.

Following concerns from nearby traders, councillors decided that no actual funerals would be held in the building, but would instead be held off-site.

The proponent then had requested only 30 services a year.

On Tuesday evening however, the councillors voted unanimously to approve an application to alter funeral parlours operating conditions to allow for 50 services, with each private family service having a maximum capacity of fifty (50) people.

The application stated that the services would be for family and close friends, would be attended by invitation only, there would be no public advertisements of the service and that there would be no procession of cars following a hearse after the service.

Lismore mayor Isaac Smith said although there were a few concerns expressed the decision was unanimous.

Its been operating for over a year with viewings and families coming and going and there have been no complaints so it didnt seem to be an ongoing issue, Cr Smith said.

Cr Smith said the modified consent would be reviewed in two years and could become permanent so long as the funeral home complies with the terms of the consent.

Conditions include that the funeral parlour must keep records of the number of private family services held at the subject premises each calendar year and the number of people that attend.

Also, no funeral services are to be held outside the approved hours of any approved weekly markets or other scheduled and lawful events undertaken in Magellan Street.

Ballina to allow dual occupancy on rural land "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Chris Dobney

Ballina Council has voted unanimously to move ahead with plans to allow detached secondary dwellings on rural properties despite a staff recommendation not to proceed.

The move brings the council into line with Lismore and Byron, which have both allowed detached secondary dwellings for several years, arguing they allow aging in place of older farmers, expanded family accommodation and potential rural rental income.

Ballina planning staff preparing the report to council offered four options: the first being to commence drawing up a planning proposal; the second, to take no further action; the third, to introduce a secondary dwelling category but remove the existing category for rural workers dwellings; and the fourth, to investigate further.

At its March meeting, staff recommended the council take no further action, but councillors demurred, and in its June report staff took the unusual step of recommending the first option while indicating to councillors that they still preferred not to proceed.

In conclusion the recommendation is as per option one, as outlined. However the council staff preference remains option two, as was recommended in the March 2017 meeting report, the staff report stated.

Option two has been the long standing position of this council and from a whole of community perspective it is considered that council has managed rural land use conflicts relatively well, with generally speaking, limited conflicts in use, it read.

But councillors were not to be deterred, with a motion by Cr Cadwallader and seconded by Cr Smith unanimously agreeing to endorse the preparation of a planning proposal which proposes to permit dual occupancy development (attached and detached) with development consent within the RU1 Primary Production and RU2 Rural Landscape zones under the provisions of Ballina LEP 2012.

There has been more than a 50 per cent increase in the number of Aboriginal people from the Northern Rivers who have been sentenced to jail in the past four years, according to NSW Bureau of Crime Statistics.

The increase has prompted the NSW Greens to describe the situation as a justice system in growing crisis.

Greens MP and Aboriginal Justice spokesperson David Shoebridge said when almost one in four Aboriginal people can expect to find themselves in jail at some time in their life this is proof the criminal justice system is broken and appallingly damaging.

The report shows that more Aboriginal people are facing courts and a greater percentage of those facing court are receiving a custodial sentence. Time in custody is also increasing and a significant driver of this is the ongoing District Court backlog and broken bail laws.

Major categories of offences like violence offences are seeing 50 per cent to 133 per cent increases in the number of Aboriginal people locked up on the North Coast. What are known as Justice Offences are seeing between 18 per cent and 90 per cent more Aboriginal people in prison in the area.

Every time the Coalition Premier and Labor opposition demand tougher laws and longer sentences remember this, the first and and harshest impact will be on our first peoples, Mr Shoebridge said.

The Coalition has been directly responsible for much of this increase through brutal bail laws and under-resourced courts that leave hundreds of Aboriginal people in jail awaiting trial.

Pretty much the only answer Premier Berejiklian has to this crisis is to build more and bigger jails. This isnt the answer, in fact its the very problem

At a time of record surplus this Government is making deliberate choices to invest in locking up people in this state, rather than working to lift them up and help them on their way.

This data shows a need for comprehensive investment in community programs on the North Coast. This means spending money on education, health and hou...

A Final Word on the Controversial Bull Running Festival of Northern Spain "IndyWatch Feed National"

This is a definitive opinion, as nobody in the world knows the Pamplonean festival of San Fermin as intimately as I do from such a well-rounded position.

My credentials: more than a decade of visiting this festival first as an ignorant drunkard, then as an exploitative business-minded drunkard, and most recently as amateur documentarian drunkard. Sangria, beer, wine and sometimes sangria have been the bolstering agents of each epoque.

Further: even in my ignorant phase, I was never too keen on animal violence. Ive been known to remove a cockroach rather than squish it, but always slap down mosquitoes. I have been to two bull fights: one out of curiosity, and one professionally whilst being shown the best parts of a city, and have walked out before the first death on both occasions. In my current job documenting Spains bizarre tradition of fiestas patronales, we have opted to leave out any bull-related events, of which there are hundreds, but have included San Fermin because, a) its week-long celebration is the biggest and most well-known Spanish festival, and thus attracts the most foreign visitors. This provides an interesting dynamic for us, and b) the people want to fucken see it, and being a nobody gnat of a production company, were in no position to be making moral stands.

Moreso: Im an omnivore, because I acknowledge animal fleshs role in the development of human beings, and furthermore see earthly existence as being little more than a murderous rampage from cradle to grave, by weeds and whales, of stealing the suns energy from one another. I grudgingly respect the vegetarians ability to supercede their genetic preprogramming and chose to morally override the entirety of their ancestry and evolution to date its just not for me.

The impetus: the plethora of neither new nor well considered boycott the bulls voices levelled at me either online, in person, or via implicit voodoo juju. Been onces or never beens, high-horse vegans and moral superiors. This is a very nuanced debate that has to take into account the cultural significance of not just the bull run, but the fiesta itself and the culture of fiesta in Spain in general. It also has to take into account how much fun I want to have, and also the meagre profits that I might make from the event.

The reality: overwhelmingly, the people we interviewed, especially the young Spaniards, Basques and Pamplonians (whats the fucken term for them?), told us that they were there for the fiesta and the fiesta only and that they were utterly opposed to the toros....

Lismore man on trial for alleged murder in sight of hospital "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

A photo outside 37 Uralba St Lismore where an alleged murder took place in December 2014

A Lismore man is standing trial in the Supreme Court for the alleged December 2014 stabbing murder of a man on Uralba St within sight of Lismore Base Hospital.

The trial of Birri Morris began on Monday at Lismore before Justice Stephen Campbell.

Supreme Court trials are held at Lismore when the facilities are available, as it costs Justice NSW less than paying for numerous witnesses and legal practitioners to travel to Sydney and be accommodated.

Mr Morris and 56-year-old Nicholas Roberts were at a party on Uralba St on the evening of December 21, 2014, police said following the incident.

Inspector Nicole Bruce told media police will allege 27-year-old Mr Morris and Mr Roberts, who were both known to each other, left the party about 6.30pm and a serious assault occurred.

It was alleged Mr Roberts suffered a fractured skull with severe brain hemorrhaging, a fractured right arm and fractured left shoulder, as well as a stab wound to the back as a result of an incident between the pair.

Emergency services were called while Mr Roberts lay in a critical condition outside the Uralba St premises, within 250 metres of Lismore Base Hospital.

He was treated at the scene before being airlifted to Brisbanes Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition.

Mr Morris was arrested at the scene and taken to Lismore police station where he was charged with attempted murder and causing grievous bodily harm with intent.

He was refused bail and remanded in custody.

For almost two weeks, Mr Roberts fought for his life in intensive care until he died in hospital on January 2, 2015, at 7.40pm.

When detectives went to interview Mr Morris about the incident they found he had been transferred to the Metropolitan Reception and Remand Centres Mental Health facility.

On January 27, 2015, the charge of attempted murder against Mr Morris was upgraded to murder.

The trial, which is set down for two weeks, continues today.

Housing supply dashboard "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Dashboard check

Over the year to March 2017 Victoria delivered an impressive 66,085 new dwellings, 31,337 of which were attached dwellings of one sort or another. 

Yet annual population growth has exploded to +146,600.

In short, you can basically forget any chance of an oversupply in Melbourne until population growth comes down from the stratosphere. 

It's not happening, and indeed Melbourne's vacancy rates appear to be approaching decade lows.


Different dynamics

Annual population growth has ramped up in New South Wales too at +116,400.

But with 64,824 new dwellings delivered over the year this crude ratio has shifted favourably towards the supply side after ten years of relative under-building in Sydney.


With some 82,836 dwellings under construction across New South Wales there's plenty more to come too, in spite of dwelling starts now finally having ...

Sublingual vitamin B12 compared to intramuscular injection in patients with type 2 diabetes treated with metformin. "IndyWatch Feed National"

PMID:  N Z Med J. 2016 Jun 10 ;129(1436):67-75. Epub 2016 Jun 10. PMID: 27355231 Abstract Title:  Sublingual vitamin B12 compared to intramuscular injection in patients with type 2 diabetes treated with metformin: a randomised trial. Abstract:  UNLABELLED: MAIM: To compare a single 1mg intramuscular hydroxocobalamin injection with a 3-month course of 1mg/day sublingual methylcobalamin supplements on serum vitamin B12 concentrations in participants withtype 2 diabetes treated with metformin.METHOD: Participants on metformin treatment with vitamin B12 concentrations below 220pmol/L were recruited through hospital diabetes clinics and primary care practices. They were randomised to receive either the injection or sublingual treatment. The primary outcome was serum vitamin B12 level after 3 months adjusted for baseline assessed by analysis of covariance (ANCOVA). The trial was registered on the Australia New Zealand Clinical Trial registry (ACTRN12612001108808).RESULTS: A total of 34 participants were randomised; 19 to the tablet, and 15 to the injection. The mean (SD) age, duration of diabetes, and duration of metformin use were, 64.2 (7.3) years, 13.7 (6.4) years, and 11.6 (5.0) years, respectively. After 3 months, the mean (SD) vitamin B12 was 372.1 (103.3) pmol/L in the tablet group (n=19) compared to 251.7 (106.8) pmol/L in the injection group (n=15), ANCOVA estimated difference -119.4 (95% CI -191.2 to -47.6), p=0.002. After 6 months, the mean (SD) serum B12 was 258.8 (58.7) pmol/L in the tablet group (n=17) and 241.9 (40.1) pmol/L in the injection group (n=15); ANCOVA estimated difference -15.2 (95% CI -50.3 to 19.8), p=0.38. Higher metformin dose was associated with lower serum B12 at 3 months, but not at baseline or 6 months.CONCLUSION: Decreased serum vitamin B12 level in patients with type 2 diabetes who are treated with metformin can be corrected through treatment with either hydroxocobalamin injections or methylcobalamin sublingual supplements.

Yet Another Massive Pedophilia Network Busted in Germany: 87,000 Member Dark Net Exposed "IndyWatch Feed National"

If you arent already gob smacked by the number of pedophilia stories that have continually come to light in recent months, you will be now.

The ink is hardly dry on the story exposing massive sexual abuse and child trafficking by one of the worlds most prominent Vatican officials, and now investigators have stumbled upon a massive Dark Net pedophilia network that has bene in operation since 2016, with almost 90,000 active members.

According to German international broadcaster Deutsche Welle, the Dark Net, a portion of the Internet where normal search engines dont categorize information or sites, there has been a massive network of pedophilia action taking place using advanced encryption software.

Almost all of the 87,000-plus users of Elysium were from Germany and Austria.

With story after story of pedophilia rings running underground, it can become mind-numbing to consider the unsettling ways in which the elite have been keeping their puppets in check. By forcing children younger than toddlers into a life of oppressive abuse they are easily manipulated later for political and psycho-social special interests, as their psyches are so utterly damaged.

Just a few of the latest pedophilia busts reported include:

  • FBI/Europol case, 350 pedophiles busted shortly after the arrest of Playpen creator, Stephen Chase. Chase will now spend at least 30 years in prison.
  • Cardinal George Pell, the Vaticans 3rd highest ranking official is linked to child pornography and pedophilia, and must return to his native Australia to defend himself against the charges.
  • 70,000-member pedophilia ring reported on by numerous media outlets, but only Veterans Today links members to the following organizations, via the Red Circle:......

Over the past two days, I revised a previous Duty to Warn column about copper mining titled Corporate Sociopaths Out of Northern Minnesota and then I also revised another column about the infamous British/Australian copper mining giant Rio Tinto that has devastated so much of the earth. Rio Tinto, the corporation, was named after the Spanish river (red river) that was discolored because of previous underground copper mining pollution that released iron oxide (rust) into the river. The company began its worldwide operations in the part of southwestern Spain that has been mined for copper and other metals ever since the Roman Empire started exploiting the area for copper, gold and silver. I titled that column Rio Tinto, Still Polluting After All These Years.
