Just as Parents Figured, Autism Has Relation to Infection "IndyWatch Feed National"

[This was published June 13, 2018 at]

By Theresa Conrick

For years now, parents of children on the autism spectrum have been on the internet and social media sharing their stories.  Many, like me, have had horror stories of their child being sick too often and then abrupt and bizarre behaviors would appear. Strep throat was often a trigger for us.

The strep infection triggers a misdirected immune response causing inflammation within the basal ganglia, a portion of the brain responsible for speech, invo...

Rebel without good cause for $600,000 "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

SOCIAL media has been such a game changer that NSW is to have a look at how the 2005 uniform defamation law is coping. But some things remain constant: humans like to be liked, like to be respected and like to be trusted. It is in our evolved genes. So we should be careful.

Whether the respect or trust is deserved is another matter. And deserved or not, humans will fight for it. Indeed, men (they were nearly all men) if insulted used to duel for honour with swords and pistols injuring or killing themselves so often that law-makers and policy-makers encouraged and then insisted that honour be settled in the courts and not the dueling field.

As the press became more popular, publication became more widespread, so the damages for loss of reputation became higher. The law became more complicated and costs went up.

Newspapers and later broadcasters staked their reputations on reliability and veracity. It meant, of course, that anyone defamed by them could argue thay had suffered great reputational loss because the publishers had urged everyone to rely on them.

As Tom Bathurst said in the defamtion action this week against broadcaster Alan Jones the damages had to be enough to convince Mr Joness devoted followers, who write to him and hang on every word that he says, to convince them that his charges are baseless.

Before the internet, Newspapers and broadcasters usually took great care to avoid defamation actions, and they still do. Editors and sub-editors were trained to spot defamation dangers.

Newspapers and broadcasters had a monopoly on the widespread publication of news and information. You needed an expensive press or broadcast licence to be in the game.

Then came the internet. It did not take much to publish material. Then came Google and it took even less. Then came social media and suddenly anyone could be a publisher to a lot of people at virtually no cost. They could also be republishers of other peoples material.

The new publishers arose around the time the 2005 defamation law was taking shape.

These new publishers have little or no understanding of defamation law. They know nothing of the old legal adage: you publish at your peril.

Rather, in Australia, they were imbued with inapplicable US concepts of freedom of speech.

The new...

Leaked Microsoft Documents Describe Plans for Surface Tablets, Xbox, "Andromeda", and HoloLens "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Leaked documents have provided details about Microsoft's upcoming Surface tablets, the next-generation Xbox, a two-screen handheld device, and the next HoloLens:

Andromeda, Microsoft's mythical pocketable, two-screen, hand-held device that's supposed to carve out a whole new market for itself, is due for release in 2018. The documents also say that, after Andromeda, Microsoft OEMs will produce their own comparable products, just as they've done with Surface Pro.

The big question for Andromeda is the same as it has always been: why? To define a new hardware form factor, as appears to be the intent, its design needs to be particularly suitable for something. Surface Pro, for example, has appealed particularly to groups such as students (taking notes with OneNote) and artists, thanks to its form factor and multimodal input support. To succeed, Andromeda needs to offer similar appealit needs to enable something that's widely useful and ill-suited to existing hardware. But presently, there are few ideas of just what that role might be.

Writing politics in a burning world "IndyWatch Feed National"

For many writers, especially liberals, thinking and writing about politics isnt a precursor to changing the world, it is an alternative to doing so. Thats particularly the case since writing and reading are individualistic, middle-class pursuits deeply marked by the cultural logic of capitalism.

The Weekend Quiz June 16-17, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Welcome to The Weekend Quiz. The quiz tests whether you have been paying attention or not to the blogs I post. See how you go with the following questions. Your results are only known to you and no records are retained.

1. An external surplus is a necessary but not sufficient condition for a nation that wishes to grow during a period of fiscal surpluses and private domestic deleveraging.

2. When a nation's fiscal deficit is declining it tells us that the government has fallen into an austerity mindset.

3. The only way a nation can reduce its public debt ratio (short of defaulting) is for the government to start running primary fiscal surpluses (that is, when spending net of interest payments is less than taxation revenue).



Palaszczuk Government one step closer to protecting human rights in Queensland law "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Queensland Governments budget, which was handed down this week, features $2.3 million of funding over four years for the states Anti-Discrimination Commission to help it administer the Human Rights Act that the Government will soon be introducing.

Lee Carnie, a Lawyer at the Human Rights Law Centre, said it was great to see the Queensland Government moving to protect peoples civil and political rights in the law.

"A Human Rights Act will better protect Queenslanders human rights in law. It will require the government to think about peoples rights when making laws and policies and delivering services like housing, aged care and disability services. It will give people a way to hold the government to account if it crosses the line and breaches rights. It will make Queensland a better and fairer state," Lee Carnie said.

The Palaszczuk Government committed in 2016 to introduce a Human Rights Act and this morning Deputy Premier Jackie Trad confirmed the legislation will be unveiled in the coming months.

It is understood the legislation will be modelled on Victorias Charter of Human Rights. Lee Carnie said Queensland should learn from the Victorian experience and ensure that people have a simple and accessible mechanism to enforce their rights.

"To be effective, its vital that a Queensland Human Rights Act enables people to take action when their rights are being violated. Its good to have your human rights articulated, but what people actually need is an ability to enforce them," said Lee Carnie.

Queensland will become the third Australian jurisdiction to protect human rights in law - the Australian Capital Territory adopted its Human Rights Act in 2004 and Victoria adopted its Charter of Human Rights in 2006.

Lee Carnie said it was time to also properly protect human rights at a national level.

"Given the importance of 'the fair go' in our culture, its really surprising that Australia is the only western democracy that doesnt have a charter or bill of rights. An Australian Charter of Human Rights will better protect our fundamental values in our laws. It will help to ensure that everyone gets a fair go," said Lee Carnie.

Pushing Huawei Out: Australia, the Solomon Islands and the Internet "IndyWatch Feed National"

Be wary of the Chinese technological behemoth, goes the current cry from many circles in Australias parliament.  Cybersecurity issues are at stake, and the eyes of Beijing are getting beadier by the day.

The seedy involvement of Australia in the Solomon Islands, ostensibly to block the influence of a Chinese companys investment venture, is simply testament to the old issues surrounding empire: If your interests are threatened, you are bound to flex some muscle, snort a bit, and, provided its not too costly, get your way.  Not that Canberras muscle is necessarily taut or formidable in any way.

The inspiration behind Canberras intervention was an initial contract between Huawei and the Solomon Islands involving the Chinese giant in a major role building the high-speed telecommunications cable between Sydney and Honiara. Even more disconcerting might be the prospects that it would work, supplying a cable that would enable the Chinese to peer into the Australias own fallible network.

What made this particular flexing odd was the spectacle of an Australian prime minister congratulating himself in securing tax payer funding for the building of a 4,000 kilometre internet cable even as the domestic National Broadband Network stutters and groans.  Another juicy point is that Huawei was banned from applying for tendering for the NBN in 2012.

As the worlds second largest maker of telecommunications equipment was told, there is no role for Huawei in Australias NBN. The then Attorney-General Nicola Roxon explained that the move was consistent with the governments practice for ensuring the security and resilience of Australias critical infrastructure more broadly.  Better an incompetent local provider of appropriate values than a reliable foreign entity.

The move against Huawei has largely centered on fears voiced by the intelligence community in various states that Beijing might be getting a number up on their competitors.  In February this year, the FBI Director Chris Wray expressed the US governments concern about the risks of allowing any company or entity that is beholden to foreign governments that dont share our values to gain positions of power inside our telecommunications networks.  Doing so would enable them to maliciously modify or steal information and provide the capacity to conduct undetected espionage.

Such comments tend to suggest envy; the US intelligence community chiefs know all too we...

The Biggest Event of Your Investing Lifetime "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The good news in the mining sector just keeps rolling in

Today, management at BHP Billiton Ltd [ASX:BHP] announced that theyve given the go-ahead to the $4.5 billion South Flank iron ore mine in Western Australia.

Thats a fair chunk of capital spending in anyones book.

Its also going to lead to 2,500 construction jobs and 600 operational roles.

The project will produce for 25 years, replacing an ageing mine thats come to the end of its economic life.

One wonders what the world will look like when South Flank shuts down in 2043. You would think its safe to assume theres going to be a lot more middle-class Chinese citizens.

That number could be as large as 500 million by 2026, according to fund manager Charlie Aitken. The Australian reported today on the presentation he gave this week to the Livewire Live conference in Sydney.

Hes quoted as saying that the rise of Asias middle class is the biggest opportunity in our investing lifetime.

I agree wholeheartedly.

The only mystery is why so many people think the world is going to collapse at the same time that all this is playing out

Aitken mentioned something Ive often wondered myselfand thats just how high meat and dairy prices are going to go as the Chinese adopt a more Western diet.

If you think lamb is expensive now, just wait until we Australians are competing with this monstrous Chinese market.

Maybe become a farmer while you can. This development certainly has the potential to send agricultural land values soaring.

But the easier play on China for investors could be to hold its giant tech firms like Alibaba Group Holding Ltd [NYSE:BABA] and Tencent Holdings Ltd [HK:0700]. This is where technology and population growth collide, according to Aitken.

Adjacent to this huge Chinese expansion is oil demand. China is not only consuming large amounts of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, its also building up a huge petrochemical industry. This provides the feedstock for plastics, fertilisers and beauty products.

As you know, demand for oil goes up alongside a rising consumer base.

Its also partly why the International Energy Agency (IEA) expects demand for crude oil to grow by 1.4 million barrels a day in 2019. Thats on par with this year.

The signs are good.

There was actually a surprise this week when it became apparent that US crude stockpiles fell.

An analyst cited in the Wall Street Journal put it down to soaring US oil demand (I keep emphasising that its a hot economy in the US...

Dr. Hal Puthoff's speech at the Society for Scientific Exploration 2018 conference "IndyWatch Feed National"


The 37th conference of the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) was held in conjunction with the International Remote Viewing Association conference,  between 6-10 June 2018, in Las Vegas, USA. One of the speakers was Dr Hal Puthoff

Dr Puthoff spoke of his interest in the areas of a) quantum vacuum fluctuations, b) remote viewing, and c) Unidentified Aerial Phenomena. In this latter area, he spoke about his work with the Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program. This post will highlight parts of his speech which interested me, and is not intended to be a full report of the speech. Quotes below are from Dr Puthoff's speech.

Name of the program

"The program was nicknamed Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program..."Advanced Aerospace Weapons Systems Application program" is the actual name of the program."

My comment:

The Defense Intelligence Agency's 2008 solicitation for bidders for this contract, states that the program was called Advanced Aerospace Weapon System Applications program.

When did the program begin?

"It began in June of 2007..."

My comment:

Although a number of people have made comments that the program commenced in 2007, I have not before seen a month in 2007 mentioned.

Terms used

I note that Dr Puthoff mostly  uses the term "Advanced Aerospace vehicles "when referring to the phenomenon under study.

Soviet Union

"This is a document in the program we dug out of the Soviet Union ("Thread-3.") It's a very thick document. It shows that the Soviet Union had a massive program also trying to get to the root of all of this. In this document a number of research institutes and military institutes are listed..."

My comment:

1. An Internet search using the term "Thread-3" failed to locate any information.

2. The reference to "a massive program" contrasts with information revealed in one of the UK UAP files released last year. File DEFE 24/3152 pages 219-220, reveals a DI55 paper titled 'Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)" dated 19 June 1995.

People Spot Wild Kangaroo In Ocean Then Realize She's In Trouble "IndyWatch Feed National"

A wild kangaroo hopping along the coast of Queensland, Australia, got a surprise. 

The kangaroo had been exploring just behind a seawall in the town of Sandgate on Thursday morning when suddenly there was less ground to hop on and less, and still less. 

The tide was rising and soon the little kangaroo was knee-deep in water. And then she was neck-deep.

Thankfully, people spotted her. She was peeking over the wall, looking totally at a loss. 

"What's that Skippy?" Queensland Fire and Emergency Services wrote on Twitter. "The tides on the up and youre stuck behind Sandgates seawall, needing our crews to save the day?"

A couple firefighters teamed up with a policeman to help hoist the kangaroo up out of the water by her arms.

Rescuers were sure to snap a few photos of their wild citizen in need as she hung out beside them, drying off on dry land.

This isn't the first time Australians have jumped at the chance to save their unique wildlife from trouble. In April, another kangaroo stuck in mud got a nice helping hand from a couple of teenagers who happened to be bicycling by.

Lennox Head Community gets hands on "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

The kids were enjoying the good weather and getting involved at the Lennox Head tree planting this year. Photo supplied.

Coinciding with World Environment Day the annual Lennox Head Community Tree Planting Day had around 150 people come along to plant trees on the Lennox headland.

This popular community event continues its goal of reinstating the Lennox headland back to the way it was in the 1880s and, through the planting of littoral rainforest species, creating a lasting natural legacy for generations to come. A large area has been planted since the events inception in 2003, but there is still a lot more work to be done, said Elise Ross from GeoLINK who organise the event with Ballina Shire Council.

Enjoying the good weather around 150 people got involved at the Lennox Head tree planting this year. Photo supplied.

Now in its 16th year around 90 children from from Lennox Head Public Schooland Xavier Catholic College joined in the planting of around 1,000 trees.

Campus KKK and Nazis: You Do Call Wagga Wagga Racist "IndyWatch Feed National"

Students from Charles Sturt University have been accused of participating in a racist and grotesque event held at the Black Swan Hotel in Wagga Wagga on Thursday evening, which included five individuals dressing up as members of the Ku Klux Klan and a sixth member dressing up in blackface as a cotton picker.

The photo was posted on Instagram and Facebook, accompanied by the caption Very very politically incorrect. Cotton prices are unreal though so its a great time to be pickin.

A Facebook post organising the unofficial university event has also surfaced. It reads:

Calling all Motts, Notts and those in between,

As exams have just commenced we are already looking forward to the end of them and thus, the idea of the muddy duck [aka The Black Swan]two dayer has been born. It will consist of Thursday night- politically incorrect themed session kicking off at 7.30pm. Tippo will be providing the usual quality drink specials. So grab a kit that would legally get you in shit and hood right in.

The post ends by wishing student Goodluck in their upcoming exams.

The Black Swan has responded with an apology stating that the pub was made aware of a (sic) incident unbeknownst to staff.

To all that message. Thank you very much for your message.We were unaware of this behaviour happening out the back of the pub, however we have immediately dealt with this.

We have zero tolerance and do not condone this sort of behaviour.



Members of the public were quick to push back arguing that the pub should have been aware and that based on the photos, the individual appeared to have been served alcohol.

Scientists Just Discovered That Dolphins Have Their Own Unique Names "IndyWatch Feed National"

Many people already realize that dolphins are extremely intelligent animals with close and complex social relationships but scientists just discovered another fascinating behavior that shows how similar to human beings these creatures  are.

Scientists from the Dolphin Alliance Project were listening to the particular whistles made by bottlenose dolphins in Shark Bay, Australia, when they started to notice a pattern.

Researchers have been studying these dolphins for decades. They already knew that young male dolphins have a distinct whistle they use to introduce themselves to groups and they believed that once the dolphins got older and bonded with a few other guy friends, this distinctive whistle that was the individual's name fell away.

Using underwater microphones, scientists recorded the whistles, separated them out and found something they didn't expect.

Even though the male bottlenose dolphins were adults, scientists could still hear the signature whistles of 17 individuals. So the male dolphins who incidentally have also been seen giving each other friendly slaps with their flippers, almost like high fives were still using their individual names, even after they'd become part of a closely bonded social group.

Among chatty individuals in the animal kingdom like elephants, certain kinds of parrots, bats and apes it is normal to use a similar call to build friendships.

Forest destruction coming your way: Lismore public meeting "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Logging Dieback the Premiers Department does not want to see. Photo NEFA

Proposed changes to the NSW logging rules will remove protections for most threatened species, open up protected old-growth forest for logging, allow intensified logging, establish a clear-felling zone, and reduce buffers on headwater streams.

Tens of thousands of hectares of our precious public forests are already suffering from ecosystem collapse, being converted into seas of lantana overtopped by dead and dying trees. Their biodiversity and timber values are being destroyed, NEFA spokesperson Dailan Pugh said.

The dieback is so severe that five State Forests* around Woodenbong are considered impractical to manage for commercial purposes. There are many others similarly degraded.

We need to stop the Forestry Corporation from perpetuating their degradation and begin rehabilitating these valuable public assets before it is too late.

Get informed

The North East Forest Alliance, North Coast Environment Council and local groups have been hosting a series of public meetings to inform the community about the NSW and Commonwealth governments proposals to change the rules governing logging of public lands to remove protections.

With a new Regional Forest Agreement and Wood Supply Agreements the governments are intending to lock up our public forests for loggers for another 20 years, and they are proposing to slash environmental protections to increase logging volumes, Mr Pugh said.

This is the last chance that the community has to have a say in the management of our public forests for the next 20 years.

We have so far hosted successful public meetings at Port Macquarie, Bellingen, Kyogle, Murwillumbah, Nimbin and Coffs Harbour. On Thursday night in Coffs Harbour 100 people were shocked to hear what the NSW and Commonwealth governments have...

Local guest houses under threat from proposed short-term letting laws "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

Local guest houses could go the way of the dinosaur if the State Governments short-term holiday letting bill passes without amendment, guest house operators say.

The operators are meeting with local Greens MP Tamara Smith at the Cavanbah Centre this morning to talk about the proposed changes, which are expected to be debated in State Parliament next week.

The key element of the bill for the owners of local guest houses and other licensed accommodation providers is that property owners living locally or externally will be allowed to let their houses and apartments on Airbnb and other platforms with very few restrictions.

While Byron Council can apply for the power to limit property owners who live outside the Shire from letting their properties for more than 180 days a year, many expect this will have little or no practical impact on short-term holiday letting in the area.

Victoria McEwen, the spokesperson for the accommodation operators, said youth hostels, apartments and larger hotels would all be affected by the legislation, but that small to medium sized guesthouses that would be the worst hit.

If this Bill is passed we will almost certainly witness the extinction of some of these compliant operators within months because many cannot compete, said Mrs McEwen, who is a guesthouse owner/operator.

We pay significantly higher commercial rates, developer contributions for roads, fire safety and food safety audits, provide disability access, car parking contributions, not to mention the initial upfront costs to lodge a Development Application with Byron Shire Council which is in the tens of thousands of dollars, and often more.

Registered operators have spent many years complying with government and Council standards, and yet we are all competing against residential properties who dont have to meet any of these standards or have any of these extra costs.

The operators are calling on the government to allow regional councils to to restrict people renting out their houses or rooms to as little as 30 nights a year.

They are also calling on the State Government to require all accommodation providers, including Airbnb hosts, to obtain a Development Application.

At the moment, we have an unbalanced industry with a different rule book for different operators, Mrs McEwen said.

Tamara Smith said the Greens would be pushing for similar amendments to the legislation, with greater powers for councils to set a maximum letting day limit according to the needs of their community.

The one-size-fits-all approach ignores the unique challenges of short term holiday letting presents to certain communities like ours, she said.

This is another example of...

Like grasshoppers, a group of 50 students from year 9, Shearwater School, swarmed into the last patch of Bitou Bush, at the Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare (BSCFL) site, south end of New Brighton Beach.

Geared up with gloves and loppers, they spent last Tuesday morning enthusiastically removing the plant from the dunes, leaving behind only chopped branches for mulch. BSCFL has been caring for this crownland under Byron Shire Council management since late 2016 when the group was invited to work on a little over a quarter hectare of dune that was densely covered by Bitou Bush, a weed of national significance.
We had a dead line for June 30 and we are so pleased it is done there was no need to spray, explained Nadia de Souza Pietramale, project coordinator, adding that the volunteers are committed to protect land from contamination by pesticides, a common tool used to control environmental weeds in all ecosystems, including sensitive wetlands and creek lines.  

Volunteers a the site were under pressure to finish the work by June 30, the date set by Rous County Council who enforce the Biosecurity Act. This act determines a containment zone in which all Bitou Bush must be removed north of Cape Byron to the Queensland border by the set date.

Ellen White, the project mentor, spoke with the students about the history of this coastal area, and explained how this plant became a problem after sandmining when it was used as a sand stabiliser on the dunes. Nadia also identified Bitou Bush and native plants for the students and showed them the simple crowning technique for the removal of the Bitou Bush.

A crowd of over 70 concerned Wilson Creek residents packed the local hall on Wednesday night to hear about and form opposition to Telstras plans for a 35 meter microwave tower in the bottom of the valley located at the exchange.

Several residences will be located in close proximity to the tower and as such will be subjected to levels of microwave radiation scientifically proven to cause biological effects the meeting was told.

Geological stability of the site came into question as according to locals sink holes are known to appear in the road in front of the site after heavy rain.

Being an environmentally sensitive area the meeting heard from a recent report to UNESCO which detailed the decline and disappearance of birds, insects and animals in the vicinity of the Mt Nardi transmitters with the introduction of 3 and 4G.

Telstra has given no indication to residents that it has public liability insurance for damage or injury caused by electromagnetic radiation. The meeting was told that it is known insurers wont provide it.

A Development Application is currently on exhibition (DA 102018.233.1).

Residents have asked for and received  a two week extension to the exhibition period which now closes on July 4.

Many locals consider this to be one of the few habitable areas of the shire remaining for people to avoid microwave radiation, those present were urged to make strident opposition.

Community groups say no to TPP-11 at Farrer Place, Sydney, 12.30 pm today "IndyWatch Feed National"

Media release, Friday June 15, 2018:
Unions, aid and development groups, health, environment and other activists are protesting at Farrer Place today outside the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties public hearing on the controversial TPP-11 trade deal being held at 1 Bligh St Sydney.
This inquiry and a Senate Inquiry will report on the deal before Parliament considers the implementing legislation in September. The government lacks a majority in the Senate and these groups are calling on the ALP, Greens, Centre Alliance and other cross-benchers to block the implementing legislation.
AFTINET Convener Dr Patricia Ranald said: The TPP-11 without the US is still a bad deal because it would increase corporate rights at the expense of peoples rights. It still includes special rights for global companies to bypass national courts and sue governments in unfair international tribunals over health, environmental and industrial laws. 
Andrew Dettmer, National President of the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union said: The TPP-11 is bad for workers because it has very weak commitments to labour rights that are not enforceable and does not even ban the products of child and slave labour. It would allow more temporary migrant workers who are vulnerable to exploitation, without first testing whether local workers are available.
Lucy Manne, Head of Campaigns, Action Aid Australia said: In low income countries, the TPP-11 would put pressure on sectors like the garment industry that are dominated by women, meaning that women could face lower wages and an erosion of their rights at work. The deal could also drive the privatisation of services, like healthcare and education, that are essential for achieving gender equality.
Michael Whaites, Lead Organiser, NSW Nurses and Midwives Association said: The TPP-11 is bad for health services because it entrenches medicine monopolies and delays the availability of cheaper medicines. It also restricts future governments from introducing new regulation to address changing health needs and from reversing failed privatisations, like hospital privatisations.

The Kingscliffs Lions Park is set for a makeover, to improve the functionality of the park while also improving accessibility and recreation facilities for residents and visitors.

The park the foreshore area immediately south of the Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club is a much-loved gathering space for many. The refurbishment is designed to complement its current use around markets, surf events and community get-togethers.

Unfortunately, two of the old Norfolk Pines in the park are in a state of serious decline resulting from previous root and trunk damage and will need to be removed.

There is no likelihood of the trees recovering and they are presenting a risk of failure and possible injury, said Councils manager of recreation services, Stewart Brawley.

These trees were originally planted by the Lions Club in the 1960s, and at the Lions Clubs request, they will be replaced with the same species.

The work is the next component of the Kingscliff Foreshore Revitalisation Project (KFRP), which included the establishment of Rowan Robinson Park, a seawall to protect from erosion and a major upgrade of the Kingscliff Beach Holiday Park.

The old shelters will be replaced in a central location allowing for a larger, clear open space to accommodate these activities, with a second family barbeque facility installed at the southern end of the park.

The plan was completed in consultation with the main park stakeholders/users the surf club, the market operators and the Kingscliff Lions Club and also Councils Community Development Office Ageing and Disability.

While we would like to complete the full scope of works in the draft plan in one go, the extent of w...

Earliest Human Presence in North America Dated to the Last Glacial Maximum: New Radiocarbon Dates from Bluefish Caves, Canada "IndyWatch Feed National"

Earliest Human Presence in North America Dated to the Last Glacial Maximum: New Radiocarbon Dates from Bluefish Caves, Canada: Abstract

The timing of the first entry of humans into North America is still hotly debated within the scientific community. Excavations conducted at Bluefish Caves (Yukon Territory) from 1977 to 1987 yielded a series of radiocarbon dates that led archaeologists to propose that the initial dispersal of human groups into Eastern Beringia (Alaska and the Yukon Territory) occurred during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM). This hypothesis proved highly controversial in the absence of other sites of similar age and concerns about the stratigraphy and anthropogenic signature of the bone assemblages that yielded the dates. The weight of the available archaeological evidence suggests that the first peopling of North America occurred ca. 14,000 cal BP (calibrated years Before Present), i.e., well after the LGM. // Lauriane Bourgeon, Ariane Burke, Thomas Higham Published: January 6, 2017


Hontas Farmer | July 4th 2014 06:01 AM // Bering strait theory, and the Out of Africa model scientific method, not dogma. | Science 2.0 - In truth the Out of Africa theory has just as much support as General Relativity and the Bering strait migration has as much support as the law of mass energy equivalence. However many non-scientist question even the notion that the genus Homo evolved in Africa, then spread out to the rest of the world as Homo Erectus. That is to say they even reject the multiregional hypothesis and seem to insist that it is scientific to claim that they evolved or originated right in America, Australia, Asia, or Europe, without any African input even a million years + back.

Furthermore, they assert, that all evidence to support their ideas is suppressed by a worldwide conspiracy, or that evidence is interpreted to support the recent african origin of modern humans no matter what. (Which is really rich since a large gathering of scientist would not even agree on what to have for lunch much less what lies to tell if they were to tell them.)


Drift towards trade war is the result of economic and political crisis "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

As the world moves towards trade war, International Monetary Fund (IMF) officials are ringing that warning bell.

Last Monday in Berlin, its Managing Director Christine Legarde, warned that the clouds on the horizon are getting darker by the day.

The biggest and darkest cloud that we see is the deterioration in confidence that is prompted by [the] attempt to challenge the way in which trade has been conducted, in which relationships have been handled and the way in which multilateral organisations have been operating.

Legardes comments were prompted by the mess at the end of the G7 gathering in Quebec (Canada), which resulted in U.S. President Donald Trump attacking the Canadian leader and imposing tariffs on steel and aluminium on Canada, Mexico and the European Union. All three have announced retaliatory measures.

China has been threatened with tariffs on exported goods to the tune of $50 billion and has responded with a similar threat of US goods.

World Trade Organisation (WTO) Director Roberto Azvedo has weighed in, to say that rising tensions risk a major economic impact, undermining the strongest sustainable period of trade growth since the financial crisis.

Of course, both officials represent key global organisations that played important roles in building the global regime that preceded more recent developments. The call was to institute what was referred to as free trade, but what it was mostly about was the complete deregulation and liberalisation of investment.

The result was a massive rise in the monopolisation of the global and many national economies, as the big global banks and other financial institutions became undisputed masters of everything.

We have to go back to the 1960s, when the post-war boom had started to run out of steam. The rate of return on investments was falling, especially in the United States. A global debt crisis had become obvious. The gold standard went in 1968, to be replaced by the American dollar and soon joined with a flexible exchange rate regime.

These things are mentioned, because they are the backdrop to the regime that was subsequently put in place. The liberalisation of finance was a response to a developing crisis, through providing new opportunities for investment, and therefore, new avenues for profit. There was much talk about creating a level playing field, but the truth was that the regime favoured the biggest players, at the expense of everyone else.

Like water seeking the point of least resistance to move along, investment seeks the route to the highest return. The problem had been that the return on existing investments was falling.

Everything was justified under the banner o...

Recognising the leadership role that Tweed Shire Council played in responding to the 2017 March flood event, ex-Cyclone Debbie, they have been awarded a Highly Commended award in the Special Project category.

Recognising the leadership role of Tweed Councils Councils Critical Incident Response Group in responding to the 2017 March flood event, Ex-Cyclone Debbie, they have been awarded a Highly Commended award in the Special Project category.

In the Highly Commended award in the Special Project category (population 60,000 and above) they were up against 16 other council projects from across the state.

Tweed Shire Councils leadership in responding to the immediate flooding, the clean-up, repairing the damage left in Debbies wake and preparing for future events has been well-planned, executed and innovative, said one of the judges.

Many of the initiatives and learning arising out of the Tweed emergency could be implemented by other local government authorities in emergency situations.

The Critical Incident Response Group managed the emergency response for Council, implemented business continuity plans for the inundated main depot staff and provided numerous additional services to support community residents and businesses at a time when many felt overwhelmed. The group itself operated from two offices, in Tweed Heads and Murwillumbah, using video conferencing technology, which was essential for a number of days as many roads were cut by floodwaters or impassable due to damage.

Key economic forums in cities across Eurasia point the way to new power structures rising to challenge Western dominance Ahead of the crucial Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit in Qingdao this coming weekend, three other recent events have offered clues on how the new world order is coming about. The Astana Economic Forum in Kazakhstan centered on how mega-partnerships are changing world trade. Participants included the president of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) Jin Liqun; Andrew Belyaninov from the Eurasian Development Bank; former Italian Prime Minister and president of the EU Commission Romano Prodi; deputy director-general of the WTO Alan Wolff; and Glenn Diesen from the University of Western Sydney. Diesen, a Norwegian who studied in Holland and teaches in Australia, is the author of a must-read book, Russia's Geoeconomic Strategy for a Greater Eurasia, in which he analyzes in excruciating detail how Moscow is planning "to manage the continent from the heartland by enhancing collective autonomy and influence, and thus evict US hegemony directed from the periphery." In parallel, as Diesen argues, Moscow aims "to ensure the sustainability of an integrated Eurasia by establishing a balance of power or 'balance of dependence' to prevent the continent from being dominated by one power, with China being the most plausible candidate." In a nutshell; this New Great Game installment revolves around "Russia's strategy to enhance its bargaining power with the West by pivoting to the East."

Yemen The Starvation Siege Has Begun "IndyWatch Feed National"

Cross-posted from Moon of Alabama

Last night the Saudi coalition launched its attack on the city of Hodeidah in Yemen. Hodeidah is the only Yemeni harbor on the Red Sea coast that can take large vessels. It is ruled by the Houthi who in 2014 took over the capital Sanaa and disposed of the Saudi installed Hadi government. 90% of the food for the 18 million people living in Houthi controlled areas comes through Hodeidah.

Saudi-owned satellite news channels and later state media announced the battle had begun, citing military sources. They also reported coalition airstrikes and shelling by naval ships.The initial battle plan appeared to involve a pincer movement. Some 2,000 troops who crossed the Red Sea from an Emirati naval base in the African nation of Eritrea landed west of the city with plans to seize Hodeidas port, Yemeni security officials said.

Emirati forces with Yemeni troops moved in from the south near Hodeidas airport, while others sought to cut off Houthi supply lines to the east, the officials said.

The port is now classified as a zone of active military conflict. Prolonged fighting may well destroy the port infrastructure. Even if the Saudi coalition forces take and reopen it they will continue to block food supplies for the central highlands of Yemen. They want to starve the Houthis into submission.

The attack from the south includes 3,000 to 5,000 troops under the command of Tariq Sale, a cousin of the recently killed former Yemeni president Ali Abdullah Saleh. They have been equipped with trucks and new weapons by the UAE. More forces are on their way from Aden and Taiz. They are supported by Emirati artillery, tanks and Saudi aerial bombing. The Saudi coalition forces are commanded by former officers from Australia, the U.S. and UK who have been hired by the UAE.

The New York Times editors do not want to understand the real problem with this attack:

A coalition led by the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia is poised to attack the Red Sea port of Al Hudaydah, the home to 600,000 Yemenis and the lifeline for humanitarian aid that sustains most of the countrys people.

Experts have predicted that 250,000 people could be killed or displaced in the offensive.

The NYT is in principle supporting the Saudi attack. It wants the Houthis removed. It f...


Assanges Lawyer Calls Out Government, Ashamed to be Australian "IndyWatch Feed National"

Julian Assanges lawyer, Australian-born Jennifer Robinson, appeared last Sunday on the Channel 7 network broadcast of Weekend Sunrise to discuss her clients demand for the Australian government to protect the Wikileaks editors rights and secure his freedom.

After six years into Assanges captivity inside the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, theres been virtually zero involvement by the Australian government to assist in the safe passage of Assange back to his native country.

In the interview with the Aussie morning host duo, Robinson shocks and surprises them with one very basic question: Why hasnt Assanges home country come to his defense?

If the Australian government would come to the fore, and help to resolve this situation, he could come out of there at any time. [] How can we not help him? I find the Australian governments position entirely unacceptable and one that makes me ashamed to Australian.

Qantas Los Angeles to Melbourne flight sent into 10-second nosedive due to vortex caused by another aircraft "IndyWatch Feed National"

Passengers have described the terrifying moment a vortex sent their Qantas flight into a 10-second "nosedive." Hundreds of horrified travelers held hands believing they were about to die as the aircraft suddenly dropped over the Pacific Ocean on Sunday. The dramatic ordeal afflicting passengers on the QF94 from Los Angeles to Melbourne is understood to have been caused by the vortex, or "wake turbulence" caused by another aircraft which took off just two minutes earlier. QF94 passenger Janelle Wilson told The Australian the "three-quarters-full" plane suddenly entered a "free fall nosedive ... a direct decline towards the ocean" for about 10 seconds. "It was between 1 and two hours after we left LA and all of a sudden the plane went through a violent turbulence and then completely up-ended and we were nosediving," Wilson told the newspaper yesterday.

What I learnt about NBN Co this week "IndyWatch Feed Northcoast"

It is easy to lose track of what federal government-owned NBN Co is up to these days, so I did a quick search of mainstream media reports and the company website. This is what I found.

In the nine months up to 31 March 2018 NBN Co listed $1,413 million in revenue, up from $665 million for the same period last year. Nevertheless it appears the company is operating at a loss.

NBN Cos CEO earns est. $3.62 million per annum approximately six times more than Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Million-dollar salary packages are paid to another four top executives.

More than 480 of NBN Cos staff are on $200,000-plus salaries and 120 earn more than $300,000.

NBN Co paid $66 million in bonuses to its staff last financial year.

In February and March 2018 the companys  three top executives spent almost $40,000 on business-class flights and accommodation during a trip to Spain to attend a conference.

Although NBN plans are advertised with speeds such as 25Mbps or 50Mbps, performance on fixed wireless drops in the evening and the CEO has stated that "We don't have the money to invest in this to take it above 6Mbps which means that many customers cannot get a decent image when streaming videos or live entertainment.

Supermarkets ban plastic bags "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

bags woolworths

THE launch of a new reusable shopping bag that will support the next generation of environmental champions and the phase out of plastic straws from sale are among a number of sustainability initiatives customers shopping at Woolworths Bulli, Corrimal and Fairy Meadow will start to see soon.

This follows an announcement made by Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci on the eve of World Environment Day at an industry sustainability event hosted by the company.

With the removal of single-use plastic shopping bags from June 20, Woolworths Bulli, Corrimal and Fairy Meadow are changing their popular green, reusable bags available for customers to purchase in store to a Bag for Good.

Woolworths Bulli, Corrimal and Fairy Meadow Group Manager, Lisa Ingram said the Bag for Good costs 99 cents, and when it gets damaged, will be replaced for free.

Well then recycle your old bag via the REDCycle program, she said.

Any money made from the sale of the Woolworths Bag for Good will fund the Junior Landcare grants program, encouraging young Australians to play an active role in ensuring the sustainable future of their environment.

 Landcare Australia CEO, Dr Shane Norrish said the Woolworths Junior Landcare program will help younger Australians to be more aware of environmental issues in their own backyard.

Unemployment rate falls to 5.4pc "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Unemployment rate back to 2013 levels

Employment increased by a seasonally adjusted 15,900 to a new high of 12,522,300 in May.

That still wasn't enough to stop the annual pace of jobs growth slowing from a sizzling 3.4pc just a few months earlier to a still-reasonable 2.5pc.

And, importantly, the pace of full time jobs growth has faded over the past four months too. 

Melbourne and Sydney continue to create employment at a strong clip.

New South Wales has seen by far the greatest employment growth over the past year at 137,200, with Victoria (72,000) and Queensland (64,900) also performing well in terms of headline employment growth. 

The unemployment rate hit its lowest level in 6 months at 5.40 per cent, and is essentially as low as we've seen since January 2013.

My Egyptian Dentist "IndyWatch Feed National"

I remember those little details of our first meeting so clearly.

The way he stood over our little group, a mix of misfit travellers and local Egyptians. I remember first taking in his tall, lean body, long, wild hair and straight, perfectly white teeth and thinking he was the most beautiful human I had ever seen.

That first night we spoke little, but the facts I learnt through the group conversation remained important details I stored away.

He was a dentist. Graduating at only 23, he was the youngest in his class by multiple years. His English was perfect with only a hint of an Egyptian accent and the occasional wallah thrown into his sentences giving his nationality away. He split his time between Dahab, the magical hippie Egyptian town I was currently in, and Cairo, the capital, where his family lived. And he was leaving back to Cario in two days, as was I.

We can go together, I said when I found out this last fact, my assertiveness probably helped by the three beers I had just consumed and my poor alcohol tolerance.

Sure, he said, smiling and again displaying those perfect teeth.

I ran into him the next afternoon. Having just bought a new shirt, I showed him and asked what he thought.

I like it, he told me, but its missing something. It needs an Egyptian touch.

Fix it then, I said. Add an Egyptian touch.

So he came with paints and a toothbrush (Walla, what dentist doesnt carry a spare toothbrush?) and, using the end of the brush, painted my name in Arabic on my back. With his arm lightly resting on my lower back, he made slow and delicate strokes as we discussed everything from our personal lives to religion, politics and our thoughts and differences on our respective home countries.

The painting session sealed our bond and we spent the next 24 hours inseparable. A casual observer would assume we were already a well-defined couple, despite only having met the night before. As we boarded the night bus to Cairo together, he asked me if I would like to spend my last day in Cairo with him and his family. I accepted immediately.

An uneventful 10-hour night bus later, we arrived dirty and tired at his parents doorstep. Despite receiving no prior warning from him of our arrival and the language barrier between us, they e...

120 countries at UN condemn Israel over Gaza violence "IndyWatch Feed National"

For some, attacking Israel is their favorite political sport. Thats why we are here today, Nikki Haley said

The UN General Assembly on Wednesday adopted by a strong majority of 120 countries an Arab-backed resolution condemning Israel for Palestinian deaths in Gaza and rejected a US bid to blame Hamas for the violence.

The resolution deplores Israels use of excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force against Palestinian civilians and calls for protection measures for Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank.

At least 129 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli fire during protests near the border with Gaza that began at the end of March. No Israelis have died.

The resolution put forward by Algeria and Turkey on behalf of Arab and Muslim countries won 120 votes in the 193-member assembly, with 8 votes against and 45 abstentions.

An amendment presented by the United States condemning Hamas for inciting violence along the border with Gaza failed to garner the two-third majority needed for adoption.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley dismissed the resolution as one-sided and accused Arab countries of trying to score political points at home by seeking to condemn Israel at the United Nations.

For some, attacking Israel is their favorite political sport.  Thats why we are here today, Haley told the assembly.

I wish everyone supporting this one-sided resolution would put as much energy into encouraging President Abbas to the negotiating table, she said.

Australia, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, the Solomon Islands and Togo joined the United States and Israel in voting against the resolution.

Taking the podium, Israeli Ambassador Danny Danon assailed the measure as an....


'Twisted joke': Leaked photo of Australian soldiers flying Nazi swastika in Afghanistan sparks scandal "IndyWatch Feed National"

A photo of a Nazi flag on an Australian military vehicle in Afghanistan has been condemned by the country's PM and Jewish community, while its Defense Ministry says the soldiers responsible for the stunt have been "disciplined." Australian soldiers were caught flying the Nazi swastika flag from their vehicle while conducting a mission in Afghanistan as part of a NATO-force deployment back in 2007, according to ABC, which obtained an exclusive photo of the incident. It is believed that that the picture was just one of many photographs that were reportedly being circulated among military personnel. The news outlet also saw a second picture of the military vehicle flying a swastika. Furthermore, two separate defense sources revealed the identity of the Aussie soldier who took the flag with him on overseas duty. The person's name was not shared with the public.

Moonlights liquid vision "IndyWatch Feed National"

Films about black teenagers, crime and drug dealers can claim a good portion of American cinematic history. Hollywood has always been good at exploiting its audiences desires and, more relevantly, fears. Its an industry inherently geared towards capitalist consumption. This is why you should fear the black man, these early films seemingly said, to white viewers. Why did it take mainstream American cinema so long to show us complex black characters?
