November verse 8 "IndyWatch Feed Sydney.arts"

Verse 8: At 35 weeks
You used to call each other Stinky
when first in love as pet names go,
a little odd. But you were dinky-
di. We watched you thrive and grow
together, get jobs, win promotions,
make a home, fly over oceans
more than once. The sweet stink stayed
for fourteen years. The nest was made.
On Saturday a baby shower
marked the end of DINKish days,
and she-whos-now-a-lump will raise
the stinky level, like a flower
that opens in the radiant dawn.
Its just five weeks until shes born

50 Shades of GDay "IndyWatch Feed National"

My friend Ryan took acid once. Thats not to say hed never taken acid previously. Nor was he my friend, actually. But if you knew Ryan well, which I didnt, youd be aware of his penchant for all things hallucinogenic. The kids call it tripping.

On this particular occasion, Ryan was tripping in a small town in Northern California. Sandwiched between giant redwood forests and a bitterly cold Pacific Ocean, Arcata attracts university students, hippies, marijuana farmers and a large transient population.

I sat on a porch in the middle of town drinking weak American beer. It could have been a Friday, it could have been a Tuesday, but it was a sunny afternoon. A few people I knew had decided to skip class for the day and, like any good exchange student worth their accent, I agreed to join. It may have been my idea.

Theres Ryan, said one of the boys, pointing down the street.

The rest of us turned to look. Ryan was darting between colourful, weatherboard houses at high speed. He was too far away to be audible, but he appeared to be having a great time. Id met him a few weeks back at a party.

As Ryan made his way up the street it became apparent he had either mistaken himself for Jack Sparrow or was having a stroke.

Arrrrr! he screamed, rolling past a letterbox and crouching behind a set of stairs.
Cannons at the ready! he cried, taking cover between a pastel yellow split-level and a manicured hedge.
What the fuck? we asked each other in unison as he ran past our porch.
Ryan likes acid, my mate explained. We took a sip of beer. California knows how to party.

Never tried acid myself. It seems a little removed from reality and, contrary to popular opinion, I quite like reality. On a global scale its completely fucked, I grant you that, but if you keep an eye out youll witness little moments every day that remind you just how great it can be. Like dropping an egg, only to realise you had actually boiled it that morning, or watching a commuter sprint for a train and jump through the doors at the last second.

Then again, I suppose thats the whole point of drugs. They can be used to either escape or enhance reality and the same goes for travelling. Maybe thats why its called tripping, and why every 19-year-old returning from their first summer in Europe has to publicly confirm that travel is my drug of choice. To them, I say try MDMA.

Surge in wind farms in Australia, drop in complaints about them "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Desultory: Wind farm complaints arent keeping up with surging industry, The Age, Peter Hannam, 19 Nov 17,  The surge in new wind farm developments has failed to produce an upswing in complaints, with just nine of the 79 projects operating in Australia receiving any formal objections, Andrew Dyer, the National Wind Farm Commissioner, has said.

As of the end of October, the commission had received 54 complaints, for existing projects, with all but two resolved. Four people had relocated as part of the resolution process.

There are no complaints for recently completed wind farms, Mr Dyer told Fairfax Media.

Victorian wind farms have attracted the bulk of objections, accounting for 31 of the 54, while SA and NSW had 16 and seven complaints, respectively. Operating wind farms in other states have not triggered any complaints, Mr Dyer said.

The National Wind Farm Commissioners three-year term  which began in late 2015 with $2 million funding  followed a Senate inquiry prompted in part by efforts of a few anti-wind turbine groups.

Fears by supporters of renewable energy that the commission may have spurred an uptick in opposition to wind farms have largely been allayed, with the role now seen as helping developers understand and respond better to...

Ostinato Records on unearthing Somalias treasure trove of lost music "IndyWatch Feed Sydney.arts"

Photo by Janto Djassi

Can the revival of Somali music from the 70s & 80s help rebuild cultural confidence and change perceptions of the Horn of Africa?

Offering a glimpse of the countrys past through his label Ostinato Records, Vik Sohonie has dug up forgotten tracks from the Somalia national radio archive that were squirrelled away to prevent damage during the civil war. Chatting with Body Promise, the writer, DJ and label head discusses Somalis golden age of music, playing favourites and the importance of female artists in the creation of Somali sounds.
 

Firstly, Id like to start with how you came to putting together this incredible compilation? What drew you to it?

The goal of Ostinato Records is to present powerful stories from misunderstood parts of the world and use music as a tool to do so. Ive always been drawn to countries that have rich cultures but are often horribly misrepresented in global news media.

Music is a great way to change the narrative, which is why Ive focused on countries like Haiti and Somalia. Both have wonderful cultures and history and those need to be showcased as much as possible to reclaim their image away from war and violence.

I also knew that Somalia was historically an important multicultural crossroads. Whenever you have an ancient port city that endless amounts of peoples and cultures have transited through, youre going to have two things: great food and great music. Foods different, you can recreate recipes. Recorded music is a once in a lifetime cultural artefact, a window to another time and place. It deserves to be showcased.

 

Somalia was a really vibrant place in the late 60s, 70s and into the 80s. For those unfamiliar with music from 70s and 80s Somalia, can you describe the sound in a bit more detail?

Imagine if you could hear the music of Ancient Rome. All roads led to Rome. It would probably have the melodies of its entire empire. [Somali capital] Mogadishu was, in many ways, the Rome of the Indian Ocean mainly because all roads (or sea routes) in the Indian Ocean led to it. It was a vibrant economic and cultural hub for traders and merchants from the Middle East, Persia, India, Southeast Asia, and China. Indeed many Somalis will say that the music is authentic and developed on its own accord. But there&...

What Can We Learn From Zimbabwe "IndyWatch Feed National"

Robert Mugabe is the oldest statesmen in the world, born on February 21, 1924. Queen Elizabeth II was born on April 21, 1926 and is the longest serving monarch in the world.

By Dee McLachlan

It was in the 80s when I traveled up from South Africa to Zimbabwe to make a wildlife film. We shot in the bush for about two weeks with tame lions, managed by a movie animal wrangler. As we were about to leave, he looked down at the tires of our vehicle and said, Can I buy the tires off your van. We cant buy tires here. We swapped tires, and we drove back with his very well-worn tires.

Then my cousin married a Zimbabwe tobacco farmer and moved up there. I think they forfeited part of their farm in the early days, so were largely left alone in the compulsory white farmland acquisitions. They are still there, part of a small group of farmers that remained.

This week-end she wrote me an email saying, we need Mug to stand down graciously and off. Everyone is sick to death of his crap. She atten...

"Butterflies..." "IndyWatch Feed National"

"I think humans might be like butterflies; people die every day without many other people knowing about them, seeing their colors, hearing their stories... and when humans are broken, they're like broken butterfly wings; suddenly there are so many beauties that are seen in different ways, so many thoughts and visions and possibilities that form, which couldn't form when the person wasn't broken! So it is not a very sad thing to be broken, after all! It's during the times of being broken, that you have all the opportunities to become things unforgettable! Just like the broken butterfly wing that I found, which has given me so many thoughts, in so many ways, has shown me so many words, and imaginations! But butterflies need to know, that it doesn't matter at all if the whole world saw their colors or not! But what matters is that they flew, they glided, they hovered, they saw, they felt, and they knew! And they loved the ones whom they flew with! And that is an existence worthwhile!"

How to survive the festive season with small kids "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Exhaustion, anticipation and a change of routine its a recipe for disaster!

If you have a kindergarten kid in your midst, youre probably dealing with exactly the same level of exhaustion that I am. I remarked on our flailing energy levels on instagram last night and received a flood of comments from mothers who are in the same tired boat.

While chatting to one of the school teachers last week, she mentioned that the kids never really recovered from the busyness of Term 3. It was a jam-packed term brimming with activities. We also welcomed Marigold and made our way through a month of viruses that went round and round and round again, leaving us all weary.

Were on the countdown to holidays now  only four weeks to go! Im not really sure where this year has gone. How is it that Poet has finished her first year of school? Ive been walking her to her classroom every morning because Ive been so absent from school life for the past few months and she needs a little hand-holding at the moment. Its difficult to evenly distribute your time when youve got four children to care for but I find that when one is particularly needy, the others make space. Ebb and flow, rise and fall.

And now the imminent festive season; the rehearsals and concerts and the calendar that says my weekends are full for the next short while. And the tired children who cant concentrate and arent really that interested in getting ready for school in the morning (every morning). And the baby who is rolling about and the toddler who shares my pillow and gives me zero personal space.

Its time to be proactive and create a new rhythm for the next few weeks. I know its up to me to make it happen for the benefit of my stress levels and the whole familys happiness. Heres what Im doing and prioritising:

  • writing a daily to-do list : Ive got a notepad on my fridge and every evening I write my to-do list for the following day. Even the most mundane, everyday tasks go on there: washing, shopping, emails to write and appointments to make. Theres also blog posts to write, photos to take, ham to order and bills to pay. It saves me because my memory is a sieve at the moment and disorganisation leads to mental overwhelm.
  • prioritising downtime : every chance we get Im making space for downtime. If our busy days are peppered with snippets of free play, stories, quiet craft time and movies, well make it through.
  • organising early nights : now, more than ever, the (small) children need to be in bed before 7. Its difficult with daylight savings but if I can serve dinner by 6 and have them in their PJs shortly after, the evening is much smoother and their sleep much deeper. Stories and cuddles are accompanied by lave...

ECB & the Coming Banking Crisis "IndyWatch Feed National"

 

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; Your post of November 16th where you state that the ECB is looking to freeze accounts in a banking crisis, does that mean they will no longer honour the claimed insurance of 100,000 per account?

PH

ANSWER: No. They will not pretend to eliminate that insurance, they just will suspend it as a bank holiday. But you gloss over another problem. The insurance of  100,000 is NOT per account, but PER PERSON. So taking 1 million euro and spreading among 10 banks does not thereby provide insurance for the whole lot. The same is true in the USA. The ECB is proposing supplementing it with discretionary powers to suspend bank withdrawals. To say that the entire program will be terminated is an exaggeration. Nevertheless, it reflects the realization that the European banking system is in serious trouble. I recommend that Europeans should have a stash of cash, and if you have a lot of cash in your account, put some into dollars in the States before it is too late.

Will FBs new image abuse tool really work? "IndyWatch Feed National"

A couple of weeks back (with the help of Electronic Frontiers Australia & conference organisers), I attended the inaugural Safety on the Edge Conference hosted by the Office of the eSafety Commissioner. The eSafety Office falls under the Communications and Arts portfolio as it deals with regulation of internet content- an historically contentious topic for civil liberties groups.

The original scope of the eSafety Office was a focus on the welfare of children online, however after noting the prevalence of online abuse issues faced by adults, the agency was recently given funding to widen its scope.

Research used by the eSafety Office found image-based abuse has become a major issue facing internet users:

The research shows victims intimate images were most commonly shared without consent on popular social media sites. Facebook/Messenger accounted for 53%, followed by Snapchat at 11% and then Instagram at 4%. Text messaging and MMS were other common channels for distribution.

Earlier in the year, the office launched their online portal for reporting image-based abuse (that has already happened) but used the more recent conference to announce the rollout of an additional tool aimed at pre-empting abuse.

The additional functionality is the result of a pilot partnership between Facebook and the eSafety office with Australia the first jurisdiction to trial the technology which offers assistance to people worried someone may be about to share their intimate images against their wishes.

In order to trigger the functionality, potential victims must first make a report through the eSafety Office portal. The potential victim must then send images they are worried will be shared to themselves via FB messenger and Facebook will create a special code (called a hash) unique to each image that will be used to detect attempts to send it on Facebook and prevent unauthorised sharing.

My Two Weeks of Work Experience "IndyWatch Feed Sydney.arts"

Hello everyone!

My name is Jean and I am in year 10. I am here at the Eastside Radio Station for work experience for two weeks as a volunteer, meaning that I get to help around, introduce guests in and make them feel welcome in the place.

Subjects that I am currently studying is Maths, English, PDHPE, Human Movement (which is like extra PE), Music, Science, Geography and History (by the way, massive shout out to my history teacher, Ms Messer! She asked to give her a shout out if I was able to talk on the radio but this is as close as I can get.)

Music has always been my favourite subject especially when we have practical lessons where I get to play the guitar. Sometimes my friends and I get into a little group and wed play different instruments and we would all sing along to a song. I remember one time the principle was coming down to our class with a group of people so my teacher quickly made me go to the front of the classroom with the guitar and she told me to play anything so it would look like we were doing well in our class. Everyone ended up singing with me which definitely amused the principle and when she left, we all cheered and laughed like we had accomplished something big.

The type of music here isnt my cup of tea but it is still pretty fantastic to just chill and relax to. I listen to a variety of music but the type of music (or more like the type of artist) that I mainly listen to is Ed Sheeran just because of how he produces his music and the way he writes his lyrics. His style of music can vary from something very slow and cute (Kiss Me or Thinking Out Loud), something to do with heartbreak (Im A Mess or Drunk) or something happy and upbeat (Barcelona or Sing). The thing that makes him stick out of everyone to me is that when he plays live, he doesnt need any dancers or a band to back him up, he just has a loop station and his guitar and performs in front of thousands of people he is a one man band!

He is amazing live, I cant wait to see his concert next year!

Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to have work experience here and to write this article. I cant wait to see whats in store for me during the next few days at the East...

Thursday & Quicksand "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Post-hardcore pioneers, THURSDAY announce theyre coming out of retirement with their first run of shows in Australia since 2012. Officially reforming in 2016, theyll bring the tour to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in March 2018. Joining them on all dates is influential New York City post-hardcore legends, QUICKSAND.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 12pm this Friday, October 13.

My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning tomorrow at 10am, October 11.

For complete tour and ticketing details, visit: livenation.com.au.

Revered for their anguished lyrics, chiming guitars and explosive stage presence, Thursday have been a house-hold name among punk and rock fans since their debut release, Waiting, 18 years ago. Coming out of New Jersey in 1999 at the precipice of the post-punk movement, Thursday were quick to gain the attention of fans and labels with their raw, emotive sound. However, it wasnt until their 2001 album, Full Collapse, that they fully defined a genre.

Over the course of their active years, Thursday produced six eclectic albums. None were more representative of their distinctive sound than 2003s War All The Time. Armed with the backing of major label, Island Records, the album continued to elevate them as one of the most complex and exciting bands of the decade. After pioneering the post-hardcore genre, the band officially disbanded in 2013.

Emerging from the New York City hardcore scene of the 90s, QUICKSAND delivered a masterclass over two albums on what would be a stylistic blueprint for many bands to follow. They will release Interiors this November, which many attribute as their best album to date. It arrives deliberately unannounced, two decades after the pioneering post-hardcore quartets last album. Made completely on the bands own terms, Interiors has a power, strength and subtlety that will likely stun you. There are no wasted notes, no flab, and no excess whatsoever. It is absolutely perfect.

Catch these two genre-defining acts together this March!.........

Spatial variation in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women's access to 4 types of maternal health services "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

This report presents the findings of a project which assessed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women's access to hospitals with public birthing services and 3 other types of maternal health services across Australia, then investigated possible high-level associations between access, maternal risk factors and birth outcomes.
Access to services

The study examined the geographic access of Indigenous women of child-bearing age (1544) to 4 types of on-the-ground maternal health services: hospitals with a public birthing unit; Indigenous-specific primary health-care services (ISPHCSs); Royal Flying Doctor Service clinics; and general practitioners (GPs). Using 1 hour drive time boundaries around these locations and population counts from the 2011 Census at a range of geographic levels (SA2, remoteness, jurisdiction), the study found:

* approximately one-fifth (25,600 or 21%) of Indigenous women of child-bearing age lived outside a 1 hour drive time from the nearest hospital with a public birthing unit
* nearly all (97%) Indigenous women of child-bearing age had access to at least 1 type of maternal health service within a 1 hour drive time. The lowest levels of access were for women in Very remote and Remote areas, where 84% and 93%, respectively, had access to at least 1 type of service.
* Indigenous women of child-bearing age in Major cities, Inner regional and Outer regional areas had more types of services available to them within a 1 hour drive time than did women in more remote areas. Thus, they had more choice in which service they use.

Association with area-level maternal risk factor and birth outcomes

Examining possible associations between geographic accessibility to services, maternal risk factors and birth outcomes at the Indigenous Region level, the study found that poorer access to:

* GPs was associated with higher rates of pre-term birth and low birthweight

* ISPHCSs with maternal/antenatal services was associated with higher rates of smoking and low birthweight
* hospitals with public birthing units was associated with higher rates of smoking, pre-term birth and low birthweight
* at least 1 service was associated with higher smoking rates and higher rates of pre-term delivery and low birthweight.

Norfolk Island economy headed for disaster following Australian Government intervention, new report claims "IndyWatch Feed National"

An independent report on the economic situation on Norfolk Island following the Australian Government takeover of governance of the island last year, released today, warns the islands economy is heading for disaster as a result of spiralling costs and inappropriate regulation. Problems include the widespread imposition of Commonwealth and NSW regulatory regimes; the planned introduction of Australia's Modern Award System; the failure of the Australian Government to take up the responsibilities previously held by the Norfolk Island Government, such as for the promotion of tourism; the loss of direct passenger airline services between New Zealand and Norfolk Island; restrictions placed on primary producers and agricultural pursuits; and the removal of the general revenue raising powers of the Norfolk Island Government.


Written by economist and former scientist Dr Chris Nobbs, On the Brink of Disaster: The Impact of the Australian Government Reforms on Norfolk Island Businesses provides a detailed analysis of the impact of legislative and regulatory changes imposed on the island during the past 15 months.

Dr Nobbs concludes that the growing crisis is the direct result of flaws in the intervention by the Australian Government in Norfolk Island's governance and economy from 1 July 2016.

The report outlines the impact of substantial cost increases facing businesses, including double-digit price rises for incoming freight, a 15 per cent rise in telecommunications costs, a 12.7 per cent rise in regional council fees, along with regulatory changes that will see wage costs jump more than 35 per cent next year.

Based on a detailed examination of the current economic situation and the impact of significant legal and regulatory changes, it is projected that Norfolk Island will suffer a very large rise in prices, a steep downturn in tourism, a slump in business, a rise in unemployment, and widespread community distress, Dr Nobbs said.

By requiring both that Norfolk Island pay its own way and that Norfolk Islanders become like mainland Australians in terms of their obligati...

Protesters occupy Adani Headquarters in Townsville "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Townsville, 20th November: Twenty people are occupying the Adani Headquarters in Townsville, including three people who have locked themselves together in front of the entrance to prevent Adani workers accessing their office.

Donna, Will and Tully, who are locked on, are taking this action today to send a clear message that Adani should not be given $1 billion of taxpayer money and that the Carmichael coal mine should not go ahead.

Will Hamilton, 66, currently locked on and a former property developer from Brisbane, says With all its negative consequences on our environment, Australians all over the country are expressing their total rejection of the Adani Coal mine proposal. We take this action in the belief that others will become more aware of these issues and join us in raising their voices against the Adani coal mine proposal.

Protest against Adani has been amplifying across Australia, including on the ground at the construction site and at their headquaters in Townsville. In recent weeks several people from Frontline Action on Coal have been arrested occupying the Adani offices and disrupting construction of the Adani-owned railway.

Adani is a key focus of the Queensland election, with Palaszczuk earlier this month promising to veto the $1 billion loan to Adani to build the railway. Recent polls have shown that two thirds of Queenslanders oppose taxpayer money funding the Adani railway. Despite this, the LNP have not ruled out providing $1 billion of taxpayer money to Adani.

Donna Smit, 48, a systems analyst from Queensland who is also currently locked on, says I am here today because our Governments and corporations are failing us. Ordinary people taking extraordinary action is the corner they have painted us into, and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to stop Adanis catastrophic mine from being built.

Tully Doole, 22, is from the south coast of NSW and is worried about the future. She says I dont want to be responsible for the extreme weather, the bush fires, the floods, the droughts and the death of the great barrier reef.

11 Signs You Are Going Through A Spiritual Transformation "IndyWatch Feed National"

In life, we go through a lot of major changes. That being said, we dont always realize we are going through them.

When I experience things like this, I do my best to pay attention to the signs and where these changes are taking me. These changes come about for many reasons but oftentimes are the result of an energetic shift of some kind. If you are experiencing any of the following things then you are most likely going through a major life change and may want to see where that change is leading you.

11 Signs You Are Going Through a Spiritual Transformation:

1. You become more sensitive.

You find yourself being more emotional and sensitive to the energies of others during this time. Since everything is changing this is normal. You are becoming more in-tune with the things around you and it can be a bit overwhelming to your senses in general.

2. You feel like you are changing.

You may have noticed that you are no longer the person you once were. You feel a bit odd and out of place. This will pass.

3. You are more curious.

You are asking more questions and looking harder for answers. You want to know things and understand on a deeper level. Nothing makes sense anymore.

4. You begin losing interest in certain things.

Hobbies and such that you used to obsess over may not hold a place in your life anymore. Because you are changing your interests might be changing as well. Sometimes we find new things that we like better and there is nothing wrong with that.

5. You find a new passion.

Sometimes in life, our passions change. This does not mean you cannot still be passionate about something from your past. We are constantly finding new passions in life.

6. You spend more time with others.

7. You spend more time alone.

As mentioned above, it can go both ways, which means for some you will become more introverted. Sometimes we just need to be alone or want to spend time working on ourselves. This doesnt mean we are unhappy just that we are being true to who we are.

8. You feel more excited in general.

You can sense that something interesting is coming and it excites you. You are finding more and more things to be happy about and life is really looking up.

9. You daydream more often.......

RCEP negotiations to continue into 2018 "IndyWatch Feed National"

November 17, 2017: After five years and 20 rounds of negotiations, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) will continue into 2018. This means that they have missed a deadline for the third time. Indonesian Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita has asked negotiating countries to be more realistic and flexible about their standards. He also has referred to the RCEP as the only game in town, an apparent reference to the uncertain future of the TPP-11.  Other reports say the new target  for completion is November 2018.

Farmers say innovation the only antidote to new climate reality "IndyWatch Feed National"

In this report, Derrick Krusch (The Citizen 15 November 2017) shows that there are farmers who are working hard to farm in more sustainable ways, by operating much more in tune with the Australian environment, when in the past this was often not the case. Change has become even more important in the light of changing weather patterns. While this report concerns the situation in Victorias north western grain belt, the lesson is applicable nationally.

Standing in a chickpea field on the sprawling plains of Victorias Wimmera district, 38-year-old third-generation farmer David Jochinke picks up a clump of dry soil before crushing it into dust, symbolic of an extreme dry spell that has brought back terrible recent memories.

Mr Jochinke, whose 2200-hectare broadacre farm lies just north of Horsham, says he has only seen three good years of rain since taking over in the late 1990s.

This makes him anxious, especially as many farmers in his region are still carrying debt from the so-called Millennium Drought, which gripped the state for more than a decade until 2009, causing widespread crop failures and livestock losses.

The politically active Mr Jochinke, who sits on the board of the National Farmers Federation and lobbies hard for families on the land, says he has revolutionised the way he farms in order to alleviate the effects of drought in fact, to save his livelihood.

Weve tried different crops, weve tried different farming systems, weve tried different technologies, he says. Whether youre a climate change sceptic or not it doesnt really matter in my book, because weve all changed how we farm to adapt.

Drought has been an ever-present threat for farmers since European settlement, but now climate experts are cautioning that harsh dry conditions are the new norm, not the exception. Increasingly, farmers are opening to new strategies necessary to protect themselves from this risk while increasing productivity and profitability. Crop diversification, smarter planting, risk information and social media are all playing a role in insulating farmers against the ravages of drought.

Underscoring the message was the hottest October on record, which scorched crops throughout the northwest of the state ahead of this months harvest, and led to predictions that the extended dry could slash more than 1 million tonnes from Victorias grain harvest.

In response, the State Government announced $30 million in loans for farmers to help cover financial losses, a move welcomed by Victorian Farmers Federation president Peter Tuohey. A significant proportion of Victoria has fallen within a one-in-10 or one-in-20 year rainfall deficiency, so these...

(U//FOUO) U.S. Army Intelligence Analysis Manual "IndyWatch Feed National"

ATP 2-33.4 provides information on how intelligence personnel conduct intelligence analysis in support of unified land operations. It describes approaches used to conduct intelligence analysis and describes how intelligence analysis assists commanders with understanding the complex environments in which Army forces conduct operations. This manual emphasizes the act of intelligence analysis as a collaborative networked activity. This manual complements doctrinal guidance provided in ADP 2-0 and ADRP 2-0.

ATP 2-33.4 provides direction for intelligence personnel at all echelons. The principal audience for ATP 2-33.4 is Army intelligence officers, noncommissioned officers, Soldiers, and civilians. This publication provides guidelines for the conduct of intelligence analysis to commanders and staffs of Army units and is recommended for incorporation into institutional programs of instruction and unit training. Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable joint or multinational doctrine concerning the range of military operations and joint or multinational forces. Trainers and educators throughout the Army will also use this manual.

1-1. Analysis is the examination of information in detail in order to understand it better and evaluate data in order to develop knowledge or conclusions. Information is processed data of every description which may be used when conducting analysis; information generally provides some of the answers to who, what, where, and when questions. Knowledge is the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association derived from information, facts, and descriptions. Knowledge helps ascribe meaning and value to the conditions or events within an operation. Analysis performed by intelligence personnel helps create knowledge in support of decisionmaking.

1-2. Commanders make decisions based on their understanding of the environment in which they are operating; intelligence analysis aids the commander in gaining the situational understanding necessary to decisionmaking. Forming a coherent intelligence picture during the decisionmaking process is difficult. In addition to determining how the physical environment may affect operations, intelligence personnel must assess how the presence and actions of thinking threats and civilian populations can influence situations and affect desired outcomes. Intelligence personnel must often assess extremely complex situations.

1-3. Intelligence personnel must accept and embrace ambiguity in conducting analysis. Training, knowledge, and experience are all critical parts of dealing with uncertainty. Intelligence personnel never have all the information necessary to make an intelligence assessment. To be effective, intelligence personnel must have....

Before Their Beginning: New Unknown Hominids Found in Australia "IndyWatch Feed National"

Before Their Beginning: New Unknown Hominids Found in Australia

By Steven & Evan Strong

Two years ago two extremely unusual skulls along with their complete skeletons were unearthed when leveling land on a farm. The exact location will remain a secret, all that needs to be known is that it is located in South East Australia in the wheat/sheep belt and was originally buried in dry sandy soil. There is no need to be an expert in archaeology or any science, both skulls looked so beyond the embrace of any normal" skull and once exposed the farmer did the right thing in reporting this to the relevant authorities.

Two government appointed anthropologists came, excavated and literally threw them back into the ground without a skerrick of care or respect. Originally both bodies were seated upright, with two arms and knees pressed against their chests facing the east. What we witnessed was totally absent in care and respect with no intention shown to meticulously return as interred, which really is the very least that could be done. Sadly the collateral damage was huge with bones out of order, place and sequence. Knowing both skulls and their associated bones are without parallel, precedent or comparison, that may explain why the official anthropologists behaved so poorly on site and never got back to the farmer. Well nearly no-one made further contact, two representatives of a different government department did pop in for a quick visit soon after and threatened the farmer with talk of a hefty fine and rumours of time in jail if news of this discovery did spread.

Most would do as threatened and say no more, but not this farmer. He kept looking for the truth. And that desire for an answer finally led to our expedition onto his country plunging heads deep" into a past of which even I was unprepared.

Digging up the Past and Future

Proving once again how deceptive two-dimensional photographs can be, the first photograph we have presented was taken before the damage two years ago from a position and perspective that reveals so much, yet is equally misleading. As it is from above looking down this skull has the look" of an Original robust skull which always have large sloping foreheads and brains, a thick ridge above the eyes and large eyes, never as big as this, but the robust skulls do have larger eye sockets than the gracile thinner-boned Original strand. One of our anonymous academics, Professor X, called the skull Smassive,(1) with one equivocation, he had no scale or comparison.

Salim Mehajer arrested for breaching AVO "IndyWatch Feed National"

Controversial Sydney businessman Salim Mehajer is expected to be charged for allegedly breaching an apprehended violence order taken out by his estranged wife.

The 31-year-old is being questioned at Campsie Police Station after being involved in a car crash in Kingsgrove in Sydneys south in the early hours of Monday, a NSW Police spokeswoman told AAP.

Hes expected to be charged with two counts of breaching an AVO and is due to face Burwood Local Court later on Monday.

The former deputy mayor of Auburn first came to wider public attention in August 2015 when he closed a street in the suburb of Lidcombe for his glitzy nuptials, which included a fighter jet flyover, $50 million worth of luxury cars and an ARIA-award-winning wedding singer.Since then controversy has followed.

Hes been accused of threatening the father of Lindt Cafe siege survivor Joel Herat, and faced civil cases over a lavish staircase at his home, a cleaning bill and a Ferrari crash that injured two women.

Mr Mehajer also lost his position as Auburn deputy mayor and the council sacked him in early 2016 amid a public inquiry into allegations some councillors had made planning and development decisions that benefited themselves and family members.

After less than a year of marriage, police sought an apprehended violence order against Mr Mehajer to protect his wife Aysha, named in court records under her maiden name of Learmonth.

Mondays incident follows a weekend wedding between the Mehajer family and another notorious family that hit the headlines after a bodyguard was shot in the back.

Semi Tongan Sam Ngata, a long-term enforcer for the family of Kings Cross identity John Ibrahim, was found with a gunshot wound at a Merrylands house on Friday night.

It came as the family was preparing for the wedding of Mr Ibrahims nephew and Mr Mehajers sister.

Aussie govts urged to sue tobacco firms "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australias state and federal governments are being urged to follow in Canadas footsteps and sue tobacco companies so they can claw back billions of dollars spent treating smoking-related illnesses.

Health experts say while Australia led the world in introducing plain-packaging for tobacco products, smoking remains the countrys leading preventable cause of death and disease, with estimated annual costs of at least $31.5 billion.

They want governments to keep up the pressure on tobacco companies and consider taking legal action action to help recover some of those costs.

Legal action would clearly pose substantial challenges, but the potential benefits of holding tobacco companies to account through litigation mean that it could play an important role in future Australian tobacco control strategies, the experts wrote in the Medical Journal of Australia on Monday.

Successful litigation could reduce its financial capacity to engage in future activities and undermine any remaining credibility it may have in the policy arena.

Macquarie University health studies lecturer Dr Ross MacKenzie, Curtin Universitys professor of health policy Mike Daube and Canadian tobacco control consultant Eric LeGresley wrote that while legal action would be costly for governments to pursue, public support for tobacco control has never been stronger.

They argue Australian governments could follow action taken by the Canadian province of British Colombia, the first jurisdiction in the Commonwealth to launch legal action to recover tobacco-related health care costs in 1998.After a long legal battle with the tobacco manufacturers, British Colombia teamed up with five other Canadian provinces in 2012 to sue tobacco companies for tens of billions of dollars.

Dr MacKenzie and his colleagues wrote that rising health care costs could make suing tobacco companies attractive to state governments.

Beyond the potential to recover billions of dollars spent on treatment of diseases caused by smoking, publicity around legal action would also emphasise the health and social impacts of tobacco industry corporate behaviour, furthering the denormalisation of smoking in Australia and generating public and political support for further public health measures, they said.

Their calls come just weeks after mining billionaire Andrew Twiggy Forrest announced plans to launch legal action against tobacco firms in an attempt to gain billions of dollars in compensation for damage caused by smoking.

His move was part of an attempt to convince state and federal governments to raise the legal smoking age from 18 to 21.

Smoking-related illnesses currently kill 15,000 Australians a year.

The Greens win in Northcote brings important consequences "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Jim Hayes

The victory by Greens Candidate Linda Thorpe in the Northcote by-election is important, not so much because the win went to the Greens, or even by making history with the first indigenous woman elected into Victorias parliament, as much as because this has provided a litmus test, for the level of disenchantment that is rising around Australia.

As well as in the immediate sense, this has longer-term implications for the whole nation.

Closer to home, Victorias Andrews Labor government faces an election next year. In Northcote and other inner Melbourne electorates, Labor has been seeing the erosion of its heartland over some years. But rather than going to the Coalition, the drift is mainly towards the Greens.Labour has to contend with this reality. It is in the inner suburbs, where this is most likely to be at this time, converted into seats.

As well as the big picture, there are local issues. Sometimes too much weight is given to gentrification, that is, the coming in of a more professional, educated and better heeled population. There is some of this. But changing political attitudes are also being seen among Labors traditional working class heartland.

The Andrews Government is  vulnerable because to its intention to turn over public housing land to a mix of public, broader social and private housing, increasingly seen as privatisation through the back door.

Inner Melbourne faces a housing affordability crisis, where average homes are now, routinely priced on the wrong side of $1 million. People are hurting. Although there is a promise for more resources to be committed in this direction, it is not enough to turn the tide.

Another key local issue is the escalating traffic congestion that is turning the city into a commuting nightmare. There is more public transport. The down side is that the growth has not been enough to

meet the pace of increasing demand and trains and trams have become overcrowded.

The Coalition parties have nothing to smile about. Their position is worse. The biggest burden they have in Victoria is the unpopular Turnbull government in Canberra. Even without this, they are a non-show in Melbournes inner suburbs.

The disenchanted are turning away from traditional political institutions and the two party system, although this takes different forms in different places. Northcote is no exception.

In the century of its existence, the seat has always been held by Labor. Once by a big margin. In recent years this has dwindled, and it has now gone.

In the short-term, Labor faces a serious threat in Richmond and Brunswick and this has the potential of eroding the governments majority and putting the Greens in a bargaining po...

"Taking A Break From What You Are Doing: A New Approach" "IndyWatch Feed National"

"Taking A Break From What You Are Doing: A New Approach"
by Madisyn Taylor, The DailyOM

"Sometimes finding the answer is as easy as taking a break and stepping back from the situation. Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our thoughts that we wind up going round in round in circles, finding it difficult to concentrate on things and, because we are so distracted, not really accomplishing much. There may be signals--mental, emotional, and physical--that tell us we need to slow down and relax. Since we are so involved in things that are external to us, however, we may easily overlook what is really going on inside of us. It is during these times that we need to step back from the things that occupy our minds and take time out to connect with our inner self, giving our minds, bodies, and spirits the time they need to reenergize and heal.

At first it may seem that by taking a break we may not be as productive as we would initially like. In reality, a healthy period of rest is something that gives us a real sense of the unlimited nature of our true potential. Spending a couple of minutes walking outside, doing a few yoga poses, meditating, or simply becoming attuned to the rising and falling of our breath enables us to let go of our worries. This act brings our focus back to the things that are truly essential for us, such as our sense of oneness with the universe and our inner peace and well-being. As we begin to get in touch with this part of ourselves, we will find that our usual everyday troubles and worries become less critical and that we not only have much more room in our lives to really reflect on the issues that mean the mos...

Misrepresentation, lies, deception and fraud ... "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Despite the expense neither the Department nor their collaborators the Invasive Animals CRC were able to confirm the existence of any live foxes in Tasmania. Beginning in 2014 independent peer-reviewed research demonstrated that the physical evidence gathered in Tasmania was unsound and to date neither organisation has chosen to vouch for their data or justify the expenditure of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars trying to eradicate an animal they could not locate Premier Bacon literally head-hunted journalists he wanted from the local newspapers, commercial TV and the ABC and paid them far more than they could ever earn in the private sector. In this way local media was tamed to play along with Government policy. Twenty years on and arguably there are more journalists now employed inside government to fend off the public interest than exist outside to defend it. Moulding public perception is now a bog-standard skill of government with little regard for truth Jack Jolly in Comments: Deception is the way this is done. Thats how High Rise Harry gets to turn Sydney and Melbourne into Hong Kong. Hes given a licence by the state government to do so, and to hell with what the people who live there want. Did anyone ask the people of Sydney and Melbourne? Nope. Oddly, governing the state would be a hell of a lot easier if it was done on the basis of finding out what the public wanted done and what public values require If you can chase something that does not exist for 15 years and spend $50 million on it, then claim that it has been an outstanding success, then there are no limits to the bullshit you will project. Anything is possible. Isnt that the lesson of the fox fiasco - that government has no shame and no fear of the public whatsoever? They can look us in the eye and lie time and time again. There are no consequences David Obendorf in Comments: Perhaps it is a bitter pill. That this expensive eradication program was based on some unconscionable lying and the use of imported hoaxed evidence calculated to deceive. The presentation of false, unsubstantiated allegations to Tasmania Police was bad enough, but lying to a fox ecologist compounds the offence. To falsify physical evidence using dead fox exhibits adds to the gravity Jack in Comments: Of course, the government in the lower house can always cancel parliament when things get too hot as Do-Nothing Malcolm (Member for Goldman Sachs) has just done: HERE

Police Action in East Palo Alto Displaces RV Dwellers "IndyWatch Feed National"

The post Police Action in East Palo Alto Displaces RV Dwellers appeared first on It's Going Down.

75 protesters blocked a street in East Palo Alto to protect families at a police action at 8 am on November 15th. A tow truck pulled up to haul away a dozen RVs occupied mostly by working people, some with children. The RV residents received less than 24 hours notice of an emergency eviction ordinance put in place by the city.

Photo from @Hermit_Hwarang

That same evening many of the protesters and about 200 residents showed up to a Public Works and Transportation Commission meeting to face off with city staff and commissioners. On the agenda: a potential long term or permanent ordinance on RV parking on Weeks Street and a ban on all oversized vehicles on city streets. Many in attendance at the meeting said it is the citys responsibility to fix the housing cost problem that gentrification created. They made the point that there is nowhere to live but in RVs and cars since rents are rising beyond affordability. The meeting ran late with more than 40 speakers airing grievances.

City staff and members of the Public Works and Transportation Committee said that they commandeered peoples homes and closed the street because of health and safety concerns. They feared human waste dumped by RV residents would clog drains and said that they acted in advance of a San Francisco Bay Area wide rainstorm predicted for the morning of November 16.

Essenes may have authored Dead Sea Scrolls - Israeli anthropologist "IndyWatch Feed National"

Since the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls over 70 years ago, numerous theories have abounded about who wrote the ancient manuscripts. Now over 30 newly-excavated skeletons may finally provide an answer. The first of the scrolls were found by Bedouin goat herders in the Qumran area of the West Bank in 1946 and, over the course of the following decade, scrolls were found in 11 different caves in the area. A 12th cave yielded another find as recently as February this year. Throughout this time, archaeologists have struggled to find conclusive proof to determine who wrote or protected the scrolls. This failure has paved the way for seemingly endless theories about the inhabitants of Qumran including that they were craftsmen, Iron Age people, Bedouins and Roman soldiers. However the excavation of the skeletons has added great weight to the view that the manuscripts were watched over by a Jewish sect of celibate men called the Essenes.

Securing a favorable IT on-call schedule "IndyWatch Feed National"

Securing a favorable IT on-call schedule | information-technology-laptop-computer-online | News And Opinions

Having an IT team on-call is very important to ensuring your companys end product retains its high level of quality. Without this component, it would be considerably harder for the IT team to get the information they need when issues do arise. Additionally, it would also be a lot harder for the IT team to accurately trace and respond to occurrences regarding the products development.

But now that weve settled how having an IT-on call schedule is important, we need to be realistic about how inconvenient IT on-call can be at times. Many IT professionals lament their on-call experiences. Here, however,  we will give you some insight into how you can put together an on-call schedule that helps your business.

Answering the call

One of the biggest problems with on-call is that alerts are poorly reported due to the lack of a competent alerting system. If the alert is reported, it fails to go to the  correct engineer who could  actually answer the call. The alert gets passed from one department to another. So when it finally reaches the correct on-call individual, its nowhere near as riveting.

The answer to this problem is to implement a messaging system that competently picks up alerts and makes sure problems are adequately handled from the get-go. A platform like OnPage for Secure Messaging which provides an app and console can help an IT business answer on-call alerts thoroughly and act with much greater efficiency.

The advantages of uses an app

A mobile app eliminates the necessity of a physical pager for alerts. Its a much cleaner approach that is not only more convenient but also more efficient because planning and scheduling are improved. A mobile app presents the opportunity to respond promptly and correctly assign issues to the most qualifie...

Huge hole opens up in Brazilian soybean field; depth unknown "IndyWatch Feed National"

Residents of a farm in Coromandel in Alto Paranaba were surprised by a geological phenomenon last week. A giant hole, which would have been about 20 meters in diameter, appeared on a soybean plantation. Scientists from the Federal University of Uberlndia (UFU) were there and said that it might be a sinkhole. Fazenda Santa Cruz is 30 kilometers from the city. According to the owner, Diogo Tudela, the hole opened between 5 and 6 November and was discovered by a resident. "You can not imagine the size of the hole," he said. The land was recently planted with soybeans. The phenomenon had never occurred on the property before. "That's why we sought out experts to answer our questions. Then we learned that there are already records in the region of this event, "he explained. The farm owner hired a photographer with a drone to take the images. They believe that the diameter is 15 or 20 meters, and they Could not calculate depth yet.

SBC: Big Brothers Disappearing Emails

  • an In My View article by NIGEL WARD, highlighting the moral bankruptcy of Scarborough Borough Councils Legal & Democratic Services department.

~~~~~

Regular readers may recall the following video-clip extract from the Scarborough Borough Council meeting held on 6th November 2017:

Briefly, Councillors Tony RANDERSON [Lab.] and Janet JEFFERSON [Ind.] had raised concerns regarding the interception (re-characterised as redirection by SBC Legal Officers) of emails from members of the public to elected Councillors.

In the absence of Mrs Lisa DIXON, Director of Legal & Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer (who left the meeting early with award-winning Finance Director Nick EDWARS), it fell to Solicitor and Deputy Monitoring Officer David P. KITSON to defend Officers actions.

I have transcribed Mr KITSONs remarks for convenience of reference:

Thank you, Mr Mayor. Yes. Erm. What Ill do what I propose to do is to send you all a detailed response to the issue thats been raised. But what I can say very briefly is that it is lawful to do what we are doing, under the Regulation of Inves Investigatory Powers Act, and the various regulations made under that. 

I will explain it, as I say, thethepurpose behind all of this is for the protection of staff who have received abusive content and other inappropriate content from certain individuals.

What happens is, an email address, the person is warned about their behaviour, erm, and if it continues and there is a potential for their emails to be redirected . 

What happens if they do continue that behaviour, and a decision is made to do so, in terms of under the policy because we do have a policy about this erm, theyre then told and IT are asked to put a re-direct in place so that any emails   from that particular email address goes to that holding mailbox, if you like. 

I appreciate that you dont like the practice but, you know, as a responsible employer we need to protect staff and members, too and it is lawful and I will explain that in further detail.

David KITSONs commitment to providing a written explanation in further detail has now, at last, been fulfilled after a fashion  and it answers very little.

But now I must report on a simple test of the veracity of Mr KITSONs assertions, performed by NYE editor Tim TH...

Misrepresentation, lies, deception and fraud "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Despite the expense neither the Department nor their collaborators the Invasive Animals CRC were able to confirm the existence of any live foxes in Tasmania. Beginning in 2014 independent peer-reviewed research demonstrated that the physical evidence gathered in Tasmania was unsound and to date neither organisation has chosen to vouch for their data or justify the expenditure of tens of millions of taxpayer dollars trying to eradicate an animal they could not locate Premier Bacon literally head-hunted journalists he wanted from the local newspapers, commercial TV and the ABC and paid them far more than they could ever earn in the private sector. In this way local media was tamed to play along with Government policy. Twenty years on and arguably there are more journalists now employed inside government to fend off the public interest than exist outside to defend it. Moulding public perception is now a bog-standard skill of government with little regard for truth Jack Jolly in Comments: Deception is the way this is done. Thats how High Rise Harry gets to turn Sydney and Melbourne into Hong Kong. Hes given a licence by the state government to do so, and to hell with what the people who live there want. Did anyone ask the people of Sydney and Melbourne? Nope. Oddly, governing the state would be a hell of a lot easier if it was done on the basis of finding out what the public wanted done and what public values require If you can chase something that does not exist for 15 years and spend $50 million on it, then claim that it has been an outstanding success, then there are no limits to the bullshit you will project. Anything is possible. Isnt that the lesson of the fox fiasco - that government has no shame and no fear of the public whatsoever? They can look us in the eye and lie time and time again. There are no consequences David Obendorf in Comments: Perhaps it is a bitter pill. That this expensive eradication program was based on some unconscionable lying and the use of imported hoaxed evidence calculated to deceive. The presentation of false, unsubstantiated allegations to Tasmania Police was bad enough, but lying to a fox ecologist compounds the offence. To falsify physical evidence using dead fox exhibits adds to the gravity

The Menendez trial has revealed everything wrong with US bribery law "IndyWatch Feed National"

With the jury hopelessly deadlocked, a federal judge was forced to declare a mistrial in the bribery trial of US Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ). Who can blame the jury? Its members had been asked to answer some of the hardest questions in modern anti-corruption law. Is it criminal bribery when a $600,000 donor to a Super PAC asks for, and gets, help pushing a policy change that benefits him - from the candidate the Super PAC supported? How explicit do agreements to trade favors have to be for a charge of criminal bribery to stick? How do we tell the difference between a gift as a sign of friendship and a gift as a bribe?

Book Review: JFK and the Unspeakable How he died and why it matters "IndyWatch Feed National"

by Edward Curtin This review was first published on November 28th 2009 and originally appeared on globalresearch.ca, lewrockwell.com and ratical.org. We are republishing it now to mark the our JFK Week, as well as announce our new Book Review section, coming soon. Despite a treasure-trove of new information having emerged over the last forty-six years, there are many people who still think who killed President John Fitzgerald Kennedy and why are unanswerable questions. There are others who cling to the Lee Harvey Oswald lone-nut explanation proffered by the Warren Commission. Both groups agree, however, that whatever the truth, it has no contemporary relevance but is old-hat, history, stuff for conspiracy-obsessed people with nothing better to do. The general thinking is that the assassination occurred almost a half-century ago, so lets move on. Nothing could be further from the truth, as James Douglass shows in his extraordinary book, JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters (Orbis Books, 2008). It is clearly one of the best books ever written on the Kennedy assassination

The Veiled Threat: Australias Campaign Against New Zealand Refugee Policy "IndyWatch Feed National"

Another twist in the farce over the stained treatment of refugees on Papua New Guineas Manus Island has surfaced.  New Zealand has been insisting for some time that it is more than willing to welcome some 150 to its shores. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, much to the irritation of Australias Turnbull government, has been particularly enthusiastic.

Australia has remained resolutely cold to the offer, insisting that such an arrangement would undermine its own blunt approach of discouraging boat arrivals and the industry behind it. For the perplexed on this issue, Australia keeps funding alternative camps on Manus, hoping for the remaining refugees to shut up and slide quietly to other destinations.  A number are being encouraged to go to the United States in a deal US President Donald Trump deems dumb.

Now, New Zealands angle has shifted, largely prompted by the crisis following the closure of the Manus Island facility at the Lombrom Naval Base.  The PNG government is being asked directly as to whether some arrangement might be reached, thereby avoiding Australian intransigence.

The response from the Australian Immigration Minister was characteristically sinister and appropriate for a former police officer.  With barely veiled menace, Peter Dutton suggested that New Zealand would have to think about their relationship with Australia and what impact it would have.  Theyd have to think that through, and wed have to think that through.

Duttons playground remarks did not stop there. He also rebuked New Zealands announcement that aid money would be offered to those on Manus Island and Nauru: Well, its a waste of money in my judgment, I mean, give that money to another environment somewhere, to Indonesia, for example.  Found wanting, Dutton has taken to lecturing a sovereign state.

Dutton then did what every Australian politician glancing across the Tasman does: suggest that New Zealand was somehow benefiting from Canberras punitive approach to boat arrivals.  Not that New Zealand has been ever openly asked about this take of the unwanted sacrifice.

We have stopped vessels on their way across the Torres Strait planning to track their way down the east coast of Australia to New Zealand We have put many hundreds of millions of dollars into a defence effort to stop those vessels We do that frankly without any financial assistance from New Zealand If new boats arrive tomorrow these people arent going to Auckland, theyre going to Nauru.

This is a repeated Australian gripe: its small neighbour benefits from having a natural shield to the north; it can afford to be more moral on issues and idealist in its aspirations.  Hard, realistic Australian pol...

Scientific Study Concludes That Jesus Christ Didnt Exist "IndyWatch Feed National"

Group of historical researchers and scientists claim the bible is fake news

By: Jay Greenberg
A study by a group of world-renowned scientists, historical researchers, and religious scholars has concluded that Jesus Christ never existed, branding the Christian Bible as fake news. With the support of various nob-biased and noteworthy academics, the research was carried out to answer the extremely controversial question as to whether the so-called Historical Jesus actually existed. The report concluded that Jesus Christ did not exist as a historical figure, but only as a fabricated character in fables and storybooks. The researchers did state that, although the tales of Jesus were fake, they were most likely meant to be fictional rather than lies, but have been misinterpreted over time. This misinterpretation, according to the study, has left many people seeing the Bible as a historical document rather than an analogy to demonstrate moral code by adding magic and wonder. According to Raphael Lataster, one of the scholars behind the study; Scholarly responses to the increasingly popular activity of questioning Jesus existence have been quite telling. We can overlook the Christian scholars, as they are not invited to the debate over the mundane Historical Jesus; to this debate among atheists. Mainstream secular scholars purporting the Historical Jesus have largely remained silent as if they are hoping that this will all blow over.

DFATs White Paper and Modern Reality "IndyWatch Feed National"

3211b

In 2018 the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) will release a new White Paper, setting out possible scenarios for the future conduct of Australias foreign policy. It would be unwise to expect any substantial, let alone radical, departure from the foreign policy format that has prevailed since at least the end of the Second World War.

One clue as to how the policy framework might be formulated may be found in the 2016 Defence White Paper. Not the least of the reasons for expecting a similarity of approach is that it has become increasingly clear that it is the Department of Defence that is the real driver of foreign policy. This has a number of dangers, not least because the mindset of military personnel and their quasi- civilian department, construes the world in a fundamentally different conceptual framework from DFAT, that at least in theory adopts a broader perspective from that of the military.

It is also inescapably the case that DFATs White Paper will have a non-negotiable starting point of the US Alliance being the cornerstone of Australias defence policy. Foreign policy initiatives must therefore be formulated within the context of whether or not what Australia wants is consistent with US geopolitical objectives.

On the practical side that process is already well advanced, with Australian military personnel already integrated into the American military structure. Other manifestations include the US spy base at Pine Gap, an integral part of the US war machine worldwide, and US military bases on Australian soil.

Australia also takes part in joint military exercises such as operation Talisman Sabre, that are clearly directed against China, or other joint military exercises, as with the current exercises that are directed against North Korea.

The fact that these and similar military exercises are directed against Australias largest trading partner and may therefore pose a conflict with Australias economic security is not something likely to be addressed in the White Paper.

To that military support, Australia also gives unwavering political support, in everything from prime ministerial statements about being joined at the hip with the US, to UN voting support for the violent apartheid regime in Tel Aviv, to maintaining a discrete silence about the US and UK supported war by Saudi Arabia against Yemen.

The Scientists

Recorded and mixed by Branko Cosic
Recorded at The Triffid, Brisbane, 4th November 2017

The Scientists first formed in Perth as The Exterminators and then The Invaders in 1977. Once they became The Scientists in 1978, they then released their first single Frantic Romantic/Shake (Together Tonight) in June 1979 on the D.N.A. Records label. After a debut LP (commonly referred to as The Pink Album) and a number of lineup changes, the band relocated to Sydney in 1982.

This change in scenery and lineup also saw The Scientists change musical direction. Pop-infused punk rock was traded in for a more psychedelic style of swampy, blues rock n roll. The band was signed by Au Go Go Records who released two singles as well as the influential Blood Red River LP in the space of a year, making them one of Australias most popular independent bands at the time. But another move was soon on the cards.

South China Sea: Philippine Judge and Frequent Duterte Critic Likes Progress in Talking To China "IndyWatch Feed National"

By:   Reporter / @MRamosINQ
 / November 18, 2017

Antonio Carpio

The Philippine governments decision to negotiate with China on its own will not end the protracted territorial claims involving other nations in the South China Sea, Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio said on Friday.

Nonetheless, Carpio said President Dutertes policy shift to engage Beijing in bilateral talks was a logical step and a positive development in implementing the ruling of the UN-backed Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague last year.

Besides China and the Philippines, Brunei, Taiwan, Vietnam and Malaysia are also insisting ownership over parts of the sea, said to be rich in energy reserves and marine resources.

Clearly, the South China Sea dispute involves both bilateral and multilateral disputes, Carpio said in an emailed statement to the Inquirer.

A bilateral negotiation between China and the Philippines can take up only the bilateral disputes between (both countries) and not the multilateral disputes involving other states, he pointed out.

Carpio, who has been championing the countrys claim to the West Philippine Seathe part of the South China Sea within the countrys 327-kilometer exclusive economic zone (EEZ)noted that even nonmembers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) were interested in finding a final solution to the decadeslong se...

Open-Minded/Creative People Live In A Completely Different Reality, According to Study "IndyWatch Feed National"

Sure, there is obviously a big difference between close-minded people and open-minded people, right? But how deep does this difference run exactly?

For this study, one hundred and twenty-three people of different backgrounds were examined thoroughly. They were tested for open-mindedness which was done through five different categories. That being conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, neuroticism, and the ability to maintain an open mind in general. After all of this, they then tested individuals for a phenomenon known as binocular rivalry which is something that occurs when each eye is shown a different image (one red and one green). Most people switch back and forth between the two images but some people merge the two into a red-green patch.

It was found that those who saw both images together were the ones who had also scored higher on the openness test in general. This led the researchers to theorize that open-minded people seem to create new mental routes in their minds and attain higher planes of thought. They also noted open-minded people were more creative thus meaning creative people see the world differently as well.

This seems to match up with several previous studies that suggested open people experienced things differently than most people. ScienceDirect says as follows on the study:

For instance, openness predicts performance on divergent thinking tasks (Kaufman et al., 2016; Silvia et al., 2008), which require one to identify multiple diverse uses for ordinary objects. For open people this seems to happen effortlessly, suggesting a more flexible way of combining information, perhaps even at low-levels of perceptual processing. For example, people high in openness display reductions in latent inhibition (i.e., attenuated attentional processing following repeated stimulus exposure) suggesting individual differences in preconscious attentional mechanisms (Peterson & Carson, 1999; Peterson, Smith, & Carson, 2002). Latent inhibition reflects an adaptive attentional gating system for screening out irrelevant information, but for open people this system appears to be more flexible, resulting in the continued processing of stimuli from which the average individual has disengaged. However, we are aware of no previous research examining whether openness relates to how...

beeswax a story from hive to candle "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

107A7050

Most nights, once the children are in bed and the house is quiet, I light a beeswax candle. Its a little ritual Ive had for the past few years and one I look forward to every evening. It signals the end of the day a time to settle in and take rest.

I choose beeswax candles because the alternatives are brimming with chemicals that I dont want in my home. Even natural soy wax? Yes! Its actually chemically bleached, heavy metal hydrogenated (they use nickel) soybean oil a process that is environmentally disastrous. And because it has such an awful aroma, natural soy wax candles are always heavily fragranced. I choose not to wear perfume or burn artificial fragrance because the side effects are awful. This article explains it very succinctly.

But beeswaxbeeswax is a sweet, subtle honey-scented option that iodises the air as it burns. Thats right it purifies the air of dust, germs, particulate matter and viruses. Isnt nature clever!  If you live near a main road or any building works, the air is full of particulate matter burn a large beeswax candle you can actually see the dirt in the pool of wax dirt that could have ended up in your lungs.

Video: Angry Mob Of Hillary Clinton Supporters Attack Female Reporter, Attempt To Silence Free Speech "IndyWatch Feed National"

111817nofreespeech

Recently released footage taken during a Hillary Clinton event in Austin, Texas shows a vicious group of women Clinton supporters attacking independent reporter Millie Weaver after she asked them a question they did not like.

Weaver, covering the event for Infowars.com, attempted to ask multiple different liberal women what their take was on Bill Clintons documented history of sexual violence against women.

For a group and party supposedly dedicated to womens rights, the response Weaver was given was startling to say the least.

From having her microphone pushed out of her hand to being flipped off directly in her face, the hoard of Clinton zombies showed their true colors, all because Weaver dared to ask them a question that they have purposefully chosen to ignore for years.

Weaver began her report by explaining the planned Clinton event and noting that she had chosen to wear a t-shirt that exposed Bill Clintons long history of sexual violence in the hopes that the female Hillary supporters would be interested in discussing these alleged crimes but perhaps knowing that they would most likely be triggered by the mere mention of them.

Weaver then encountered a security guard who claimed that he worked for the property owner but had actually been filmed doing security for the Clinton motorcade. In other words, a Clinton crony was sent to bother Weaver almost immediately.

Clinton fans then laughably claimed that the documented fact that Clinton helped sell off some of our uranium to the Russians is fake news.

The same women who claimed that a verified fact is fake news also refused to answer a question about how she feels about all the women accusing Bill Clinton of sexual assault by turning her answer into a question itself about disinformation she heard from the mainstream media regarding Alex Jones.

Another Clinton zombie was so triggered that she actually grabbed Weavers microphone in a clear attempt at squashing both free speech and the rights of the press.

Perhaps the most shocking part of the entire exchange between Weaver and the Clinton zombies came when employees of the book store where Clinton was signing her excuses filled book actually came up to Weaver and demanded that she leave under the threat of violence.

Im sorry I need for you to go because you are upsetting people, one of the liberal store employees laughably claimed. (Keep in mind they were on a public sidewalk)

Maybe we no longer want long lives "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

So you'd like to live forever.

I'm going to deliver some bad news, straight from this week's conference on the future of Australian lifespans: you probably won't even make 100.

Worse still, your children probably won't make 100, and maybe not even their children.

The massive and unprecedented progress we've made since our first estimates were published in 1867 has blinded us to the fact that  just like regularly squeezing more speed out of computer chips is becoming harder it's becoming harder to squeeze more years out of life.

No one is yet signing off on an upper limit. Some people are talking about 125 years; others 600 years, which is the age by which, even if we could medically live forever, we would be as good as certain to have a life-ending accident.

Getting even a handful of those extra years would require herculean efforts of the kinds at which we once excelled but now find daunting.

Australia's first life table, published in The Sydney Morning Herald a century and a half ago, gave a newborn colonist just 45.6 years. One published today would give that newborn boy 80.4 years and a newborn girl 84.6.

The figures are midpoints, derived from adding up the death rates at each year of life. Some newborns will live longer. In Melbourne's inner east and Sydney's north shore the typical newborn girl can expect 87 years. Indigenous Australians can expect much less, about 70 for a boy and 75 for a girl.

Higher education is associated with an extra four years, according to Melbourne University's Philip Clarke, although it may not be education itself that buys the years, but something that goes with it. Higher income buys an extra five to six years. Perhaps because of that it matters which electorate you are in. People in Labor and National Party electorates get fewer years than those in Liberal electorates.

The early gains were relatively easy. In the 1860s an extraordinary 20 per cent of boys didn't make it to the age of five. Twenty per cent of girls didn't make it to 10. By ensuring that children survived the first few years, we boosted expected lifespans to 67 for boys and 72 for girls.

Then came the cancer years. For two decades from the 1950s right through to the early '70s, life expectancies scarcely grew. De...

Gross State Product. Victoria top, but NSW the real winner "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Victoria has Australia's top-performing state economy, but the real prizes have gone to NSW and South Australia.

The annual Bureau of Statistics measure of state domestic product puts Victoria's economic growth at 3.3 per cent throughout 2016-17. NSW recorded weaker growth of 2.9 per cent, South Australia 2.2 per cent, Queensland 1.8 per cent and Tasmania 1.1 per cent. Western Australia's economy shrank 2.7 per cent.

But the league table takes no account of population growth.

Victoria had by far the strongest population growth during 2016-17. NSW and Queensland were well behind, and the other states even further behind. When adjusted for population, gross state product per resident grew fastest in South Australia (1.6 per cent) and NSW (1.3 per cent). Victoria's gross state product per resident grew just 0.9 per cent.

 

The Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory did better than the states on all measures. The ACT recorded economic growth of 4.6 per cent and growth per resident of 2.9 per cent and the Northern Territory recording growth of 4 per cent and 3.7 per cent.

Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas brushed aside the per capita measure to declare that the overall 3.3 per cent result was higher than at any point during the previous term of the Liberal National Party government.

"This data once again shows the strength of Victoria's economy, and reinforces the direction we've steered our economy across three successive budgets with a focus on the infrastructure and services Victorians need," he said.

In both big states the growth was broadly based with the production of "professional, scientific and technical services" the biggest contributor.

Good Prepper/Survival Forums. "IndyWatch Feed National"

I have been a member on many survival forums, the American ones are fine for those living in America, but Australia is so different from America that I find it is really of no interest or help to me. Australian survival forums do not impress me at all, many members tend to be narrow minded & set in their ways & spend more time making disparaging comments than actually adding useful information to the topic.
In my search for a forum where I can actually enjoy sharing my knowledge & at the same time learn something new, I came across the "Preppers Forum" based in the UK. Now I fully realise that the UK is also different from Australia, but not as different as America is. The people don't always think in the same way as we do in Australia, but they are more like us than the Americans are when it comes to discussing survival topics.
Right now I am posting topics on this UK forum that is of some use to those in the UK, but if there were more Australian members then I would also post topics that are of interest to Australians. If like me you have found that you don't "fit in" on other forums, forums where Moderators & Managers fail to curb bad behavour by other members, then this could be the forum for you.

Admittedly, they help keep us out of jail, so were a little biased. But thats not the only reason we love Marque Lawyers.

Unsmashed Avo Tipped to be Sydneys Next Big Food Trend "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

NonSmashedAvo

A Bondi caf has been awarded five chefs hats and hailed as fucking genius for serving customers whole, unpeeled avocados on toast, a bold departure from smashed avo, which dominated global headlines throughout the year.

The chef said the new creation aligns beautifully with his philosophy of making whole foods whole again.

Smashed avo was really just part of that ridiculous deconstructed food trend, which is so 2017, he said. We wanted to ditch the fads and get back to basics for 2018. Our food is so wholesomely whole we dont even peel off the little sticker that comes naturally from the tree.

Sunday brunch fans have been lining up for the dish since 4am Wednesday morning, with many saying theyre willing to spend all the deposit their parents gave them for their first home on this culinary marvel.

When the right to be forgotten becomes possible on the Ethereum blockchain "IndyWatch Feed National"

Storing diplomas or data on the blockchain will certainly infringe regulations on personal datas protection. Lexing Alain Bensoussans Legal Opinion analyses compliance of the BCDiploma solution with the GDPR.

The general regulation on personal data (GDPR) will be the new reference text on the protection of personal data, defined as all information related to a physical person. It will take effect on May 25th, 2018. As a new standard in terms of privacy protection, we especially find among its contributions the granting of new rights for individuals whose data are undergoing treatment:

    The right to erasure (i.e. the right to be forgotten).
    The right to portability;
    The right of rectification.

The GDPR has a worldwide scope and applies to all companies having or processing data of EU residents. The regulation gives to the regulator the power to inflict financial sanctions up to 4% of a companys global turnover. As a consequence, one can figure out that the conformity with this new regulation is a major stake for companies, CIOs and lawyers.

Blockchain and the GDPR: An inevitable conflict?

The GDPR also provides EU citizens with a right to erasure: to be able to require that businesses holding their data irrevocably erase the data upon request (also known as the right to be forgotten). (..) This may end up putting the GDPR on a collision course with blockchain technologies in unexpected ways. Luther Martin

New services based on blockchain technologies are created every day, in various domains: finance, insurance, logistic, healthcare, but also education, with diploma certification. However, due to the unalterable character of the blockchain, a data is impossible to erase once it has been written on it. At first glance, blockchain and right to be forgotten dont seem compatible. Inalterability and decentralization not only imply that the register is made of indelible data, but also imply that this register is shared with all user in the network In case of application of the right to be forgotten, we might expect to go against the very principle of inalterability, which lies at the core of the blockchain technology. In order to comply with the blockchain principles, it would be necessary to erase the data from each and every node of the network, and its records, which is technically impossible. For stakeholders and users of the blockchain technology, it becomes urgent to find answers to this issue in order to not slow down the adoption of this technology. All the more since the material and territorial application field of the GDPR is extremely broad.

Could you distinguish a dead person from a mannequin? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Caitlin Doughty writes about two recent cases where people came across the bodies of dead people but then dumped them, thinking that they were mannequins put out as pranks. She is the owner of a funeral home and she says that part of the problem is that too few people spend any time at all with their deceased loved ones, thinking that they must quickly shunt them off to funeral homes, and thus have little idea of what a dead person looks like.

How could this happen twice in the span of two years? The answer lies in our strained, often non-existent relationship to the dead body. In the Western world, Halloween mannequins are more of a reality than a real dead body. The misidentification of a corpse by civilians is not a surprising outcome, it is the only outcome.

I opened my latest book with the story of a daughter who wanted to keep her mother at home after she died. The hospice nurse, well intentioned though she may have been, erroneously told the daughter that to do this would be illegal, that the funeral home had to come take away the body immediately. The daughter feared that something she desperately wanted for her own healing was morbid and wrong.

Meeting our dead, in their natural state, is something Americans practiced for hundreds of years before the rise of the modern funeral industry (and the chemical preservation and makeup that came with it). Anyone who has cared for their own dead knows it is a simple transition back to that time past. Our dead have almost magic powersan outsized, powerful, and unexpectedly profound effect on the grieving individual. Even if we fear them, we must see them for what they aretreasure, not trash.

If you had asked me before whether I could tell the difference between a dead person and a mannequin, I would have said of course. But after reading this, I am not so sure. When I have been to open-casket funerals of people I have known, they do not look quite like what they did when alive. Given the increasing life-like appearance of mannequins these days, maybe I could get confused too.

Australia the chartered corporation "IndyWatch Feed National"

Some people may know that Australia's ex prime minister Tony Abbott stated that Australia was started off as a chartered corporation.

Thanking Allah ( or 'fortunately' - for the people in government) the majority of the serf population missed it, where even if they didn't they still would not comprehend what that means.

So let's get straight into the meat of the topic from information contained within UNESCO under the headline;

Deed of Settlement of the South Australia Company 1836


The Deed of Settlement and Royal Charter of Incorporation of the South Australian Company is a key document in South Australias history: it highlights the difference between the manner in which South Australia was established and populated and the foundation of other Australian colonies as penal settlements. It also records British economic expansionism at its peak and illustrates the interconnections between British business interests, the Colonial Office, and social and evangelical activists. In 1834, the British Parliament passed the South Australia Act, which empowered the government to establish and settle a province in South Australia. However, the Colonization Commissioners required 35,000-worth of land in South Australia to be sold before the new province could be established. Initially, only a limited amount of land was bought. The South Australian Company was formed in London on 9 October 1835, to encourage the further purchase of land. On 27 June 1836, the Deed of Settlement was signed by about 300 shareholders of the South Australian Company. The company played a pivotal role in the founding, early survival, and development of the colony, where the company built roads, bridges, ports, warehouses, and mills, and established agriculture, whaling, banking, and mining enterprises.2

The Deed of Settlement and Royal Charter of Incorporation of the South Australian Company is significant as a document representing the history of both imperial Britain and colonial South Australia. In establishing the rights and property of the South Australian Company, it demonstrates the extent of British government, business and social-evangelical interests in Australia.

FixedIt: Invisible child rapists "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Independent reporting of the trial of three men who kidnapped a 14 year old girl, drugged her, photographed her and advertised her on a escort website. Twenty men paid to rape her.

Jake Cairns, 21,  Brandon Sharples, 20, and Jack McInally, 21, have all been convicted of facilitating the sexual exploitation of a child but theyre not identified in this article until the third paragraph.

If all you read was the headline, you wouldnt even know they had been on trial, let alone that they were convicted. And once again, the media confuses rape with sex. They are not the same thing. Sex only happens when there is consent. A 14 year old girl who has been kidnapped and drugged by adult men was not consenting to sex. She was being raped. The men who kidnapped her and took money from other men who paid to rape her should not be erased from the headlines, they should be the focus.

FixedIt is an ongoing project to push back against the medias constant erasure of violent men and blaming of innocent victims. If you would like to help fund it even $5 a month makes a big difference please consider becoming a Patron

FBI report on black extremists raises new monitoring fears "IndyWatch Feed National"

.

Jeff Sessions

WASHINGTON (AP) An FBI report on the rise of black extremists is stirring fears of a return to practices used during the civil rights movement, when the bureau spied on activist groups without evidence they had broken any laws.

The FBI said it doesnt target specific groups, and the report is one of many its intelligence analysts produce to make law enforcement aware of what they see as emerging trends. A similar bulletin on white supremacists, for example, came out about the same time.

The 12-page report, issued in August, says black identity extremists are increasingly targeting law enforcement after police killings of black men, especially since the shooting of Michael Brown roiled Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014. The report describes cases in which extremists had acted in retaliation for perceived past police brutality incidents. It warned that such violence was likely to continue.

Black leaders and activists were outraged after Foreign Policy revealed the existence of the report last month. The Congressional Black Caucus, in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the report conflates black political activists with dangerous domestic terrorist organizations and would further erode the frayed relationship between police and minority communities.

I have never met a black extremist. I dont know what the FBI is talking about, said Chris Phillips, a filmma...

In a recent incident in the United States, yet another unarmed man was shot dead by police after opening his front door in response to their knock. The police were going to serve an arrest warrant on a domestic violence suspect the mans neighbour but went to the wrong address. See Police kill innocent man while serving warrant at wrong address.

For those who follow news in the United States, the routine killing of innocent civilians by the police has become a national crisis despite concerted attempts by political and legal authorities and the corporate media to obscure what is happening. See Killed by Police and The Counted: People killed by police in the US.

So far this year, US police have killed 1,044 people. In contrast, from 1990 to 2016, police in England and Wales killed just 62 people. See Fatal police shootings.

Of course, these murders by the police are just the tip of the iceberg of police violence as police continue to demonstrate that the freedoms guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment have been eviscerated. See What Country Is This? Forced Blood Draws, Cavity Searches and Colonoscopies.

So why are the police so violent? you might ask. Well, several scholars have offered answers to this question and you can read a little about what they say in these articles reviewing recent books on the subject. See The Fraternal Order of Police Must Go and Our Ever-Deadlier Police State.

Washingtons War On Poor Grad Students "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Jill Richardson for Other Words - The Republican tax plan winding its way through Congress includes a special middle finger to the nations graduate students. Its a little bit wonky, so stay with me here. Ill explain how it affects me, since Im an actual graduate student. Going to grad school wouldve been entirely out of reach for me if I had to pay full tuition for my education. Getting a PhD takes at least five years and often more. I dont have a spouse, trust fund, or parents to cover my cost of living or my tuition. If I had to pay for my own education, it wouldve been simply out of the question. This is hardly uncommon. How many adults do you know can forego five or more years of income while simultaneously paying thousands of dollars in college tuition each year? Since the answer to that question is not many, universities employ graduate students as poorly paid labor in exchange for an education, health insurance, and a very low wage. In my case, Ive worked as a teaching assistant for the past three years while also attending classes at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Other students worked as research assistants. A lucky few got funding that allowed them to pursue their own research. The rest of us had to work. Forbes mentions some magical places where graduate students are given stipends up to $50,000 per year. At Wisconsin, we werent so lucky.

A delicate exercise "IndyWatch Feed National"

It must be tricky to critique flat Earth stories, which are risibly goofy and in defiance of the evidence, when you personally believe in young Earth stories, which are just as idiotic, but Danny Faulkner of Answers in Genesis tries. He attended a flat earth conference, and whats remarkable about his essay is how gingerly he treads. Make no mistake, Faulkner does not believe in this flat earth crap, he gives a few specific criticisms of some of their rationalizations, and it is not currently the policy of Answers in Genesis to support flat earth claims (they say the Bible does not claim the Earth is flat), but give them time if flat-earthers become numerous enough to be fleeced, expect even more niceness from AiG.

Its just the irony of it all. Faulkner was getting a little taste of how loony these fringe Bible kooks look to the rest of us, with their weird claims that flout all the evidence, but are fervently held solely because they connect them to their religious beliefs. No, the Bible doesnt flat out state that the Earth is flat, but it is a reasonably inferred part of the mythology, and there are all kinds of hints that the ancient authors modeled the world that way; it also doesnt come right out and say that the Earth is only 6000 years old, but it is also clear that the ancient authors had no concept of deep time, and so AiG has inferred and imposed a set of interpretations on the Bible that bolster their preferred preconceptions. There is no difference between flat-earthers and young-earthers in their methodology or their biases or their abuse of science.

Theres also the lack of perspective. Ive attended creationist events, and this is exactly what they sound like: disappointingly vague, reliant entirely on religious testimonies and that damnable Christian persecution complex.

I was a bit disappointed by the content of the conference. I had expected that I would hear and see information about flat-earth that I hadnt encountered already, but that wasnt the case. Many of the presentations largely were personal testimonies of how people had come to believe in flat earth. Hence, I didnt learn much about the flat-earth model that I didnt already know. However, I did learn much about the flat-earth movement itself. In conversations and in the presentations, I learned how people came to lose jobs, friends, and even family members once they, in their own words, came out of the closet about flat earth. Therefore, many of the people in attendance clearly viewed the meeting as a safe refuge where they could meet ostracized people like themselves. This clearly brought joy to many attendees, and I suppose the last thing these people would do would....

Noro on the Veendam? "IndyWatch Feed National"

HAL VeendamA passenger sailing on a Holland America Line (HAL) cruise ship near Greece contacted me today, stating that a number of guests are experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms:

"I'm currently on MS Veendam. Left Fort Lauderdale on October 20th and due to return to Fort Lauderdale on December 8th. Currently docked in Souda, Greece. Leaving at 5:00 pm less than an hour from now. Souda port terminal has WiFi.

Noro started about four days ago. We did pick up passengers in Barcelona and some of them are sick now and seem to have gotten sick shortly after boarding from what I understand. One day there were 29 passengers and two crew sick . . .  Yesterday ...  only four new cases and no crew sick anymore. 

Ship is cleaning, isolating and taking precautions including not allowing passengers to handle food which is good."

It is currently unknown whether the gastrointestinal outbreak is in fact due to norovirus (or-coli or some other more exotic virus) because there will be no testing of the affected passenger's stools. 

In the last week, we have written about GI outbreaks which included the Crown Princess, which called on a U.S. port and had to report the outbreak to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The Anthem of the Seas was experienced a similar outbreak affected many dozens of guests (around 100 people). The Anthem did not meet the percentage of guests who reported their symptoms to the ship infirmary, and therefore there is no official CDC report.  The Celebrity Solstice was also reportedly hit with an aggressive GI outbreak while sailing around Australia, according to news accounts. 

Holland America Line experienced 18 cases of GI sicknesses reported to the CDC since 2010. Only Princess Cruises suffered more norovirus/GI cases which were reported to the CDC during this time period. HAL suffered norovirus outbreaks on the Nieuw Amsterdam, and two outbreaks each on the Volendam and the Noordam this year.

Cruise ships on non-U.S. itineraries do not have to report GI outbreaks.

Legendary Australian guitarist and AC/DC co-founder Malcolm Young has died aged 64.

Known for the powerhouse riffs and rhythm guitar that propelled the Sydney group to superstardom, Young had been suffering from dementia for the past three years.

Young started AC/DC in 1973 with his brother, fellow guitarist Angus.

Their other brother George Young, a member of The Easybeats and a producer for AC/DC, died in October aged 70.

Malcolm Young died peacefully on Saturday with his family by his bedside, a statement on AC/DCs Facebook page said.

As his brother it is hard to express in words what he has meant to me during my life, the bond we had was unique and very special, Angus Young said.

Roo scientists admit industry stimulates roo population growth whilst calling roos pests "IndyWatch Feed National"

This scientific submission on commercial kangaroo management was closely based on the literature from the industry, which proved to be a revelation in what it actually admitted about its manipulation of kangaroo population numbers. Basically, the very small number of scientists dominating the academic literature and the industry have stated (variously) that the industry artificially stimulates population growth rebound beyond normal numbers in targeted populations of kangaroos; that they then justify their industry and culls on the basis that the animals are too populous and a pest; that the Australian public would not allow the industry to continue if they did not swallow the line that kangaroos are a pest; that although the industry and population culls are justified in order to prevent damage to grasslands and erosion by overgrazing, this is in fact false, and the example is given of kangaroos even at 50 per square km making almost no impact on the land, whereas the sheep that the industry is purportedly saving the land for, devastate it. This is my second article on kangaroo science (see the other one here) and I did not go into it expecting to find such blatant snake oil passing for research among a very small cognoscenti, but here it is. Im was surprised as you will be. Also, one final word, even if the industry is correct in saying that it artificially boosts kangaroo numbers in order to have enough kangaroos to harvest, as I say at the end, that does not apply to all populations and that does not mean that the strategy is not causing population crashes and demographic anomalies, for reasons that I raise in this article. If you think there are fewer kangaroos around, you may well be right and have a better idea than the industry itself. (This researched article by evolutionary sociologist Sheila Newman [1] was originally submitted to the South Australian Commercial Kangaroo Management Plan 2018-2022 (kmp@sa.gov.au) on behalf of the Australian Wildlife Protection Council on 7 October 2017.)

FACT CHECK: Size comparison - cargo vessel Island Trader and cruise ship Caledonian Sky "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"


The debate concerning the Sydney-driven proposal to make the Port of Yamba a cruise ship destination continues.

I have noticed there has been some comment on social media that the small cruise ships Yamba could expect to have visit would be same size or smaller than the Island Trader which used Yamba as its home port for around 17 years.

The phrase small cruise ship is being taken literally and the conclusion invited is that these cruise ships are so small there is nothing to be concerned about.

To assist with a more accurate size comparison I have laid out the dimensions of the cargo vessel MV Island Trader and the passenger ship MV Caledonian Sky below.

The comparison indicates that if the proposal goes ahead the average small cruise ship entering the Clarence River estuary is likely to be at least twice the size of the Island Trader.

# This is MV Island Trader

The Island Trader was built in 1981, has 485 gross tonnage, dead weight of 242t*, is 38.8m long, 9m wide and has a maximum draft of 2.8m.

Other refugees on the island do not believe that Nauru is equipped to perform the brain surgery need, but no arrangements have been made for the man to be medivacced for urgent treatment.

People on the island are also concerned that the current dispute between Border Force and the Nauru government that has seen the Nauru government expel 107 Canstruct workers from the island in the last 24 hours has paralysed administration on the island and is delaying the decision to provide the urgent treatment he needs. The injured refugee is a Canstruct worker.

The dispute between Border Force and the Nauru government is over rent (believed to be over $3.5 million a year) that Border Force has been paying for space in the Menen Hotel (owned by the Nauruan government) for various activities.

We have grave fears for the life of this refugee. He needs urgent surgery; any delay could be a matter of life and death, said Ian Rintoul, spokesperson for the Refugee Action Coalition.

Border Force cannot shrug off its responsibility for this mans welfare. We are calling on Peter Dutton to ensure that a money-squabble with Nauru is not going to cost this refugee his life.

Whats This about Roy Moore and the Droit du Seigneur? "IndyWatch Feed National"

Journos wait on steps of State House in Montgomery, for a womens meeting re Roy Moore

by Mary W Maxwell

Yesterday I published an article at Rumor Mill News about the Roy Moore affair. I feel quite certain he is not guilty of the sexual harassment, or whatever you call it, that he is accused of, much less of being a pedophile. In that article I said so in an indirect manner.  Ill say it more directly in this article.

The line-up of who is accusing Moore is handy for separating the sheep from the goats, the wheat from the chaff, etc, in Congress. Several Republican senators came forward promptly to dissociate themselves from Moore, or even to say he cant join the Senate.  What a joke. They have revealed their attachment to the machine by so saying.

Is Roy a Sleazy Type?

Will AI scarecrows warn off elephants? "IndyWatch Feed National"

When you think of agricultural pests, elephants are probably near the bottom of the list. But they do an enormous amount of damage to nut and banana plantations precisely because they are too big, tough and smart to scare off once they start eating. Now, Australian researchers have developed an AI scarecrow that can do the job. It has been so successful that they are looking to adapt it to other smart pests the long term goal is a scarecrow that understands the type of pest approaching and can tailor its scaring strategy.

Scarecrow technology has a long history of ignominious failure, and not just for elephants  animals quickly learn to tune out a deterrent if it becomes apparent that there is no threat. Many growers have described birds perching and even roosting on devices that were designed to scare them off. So researchers from CSIRO, Australias national research organization, decided the answer was artificial intelligence.

Their AI scarecrow bears little resemblance to what you may be picturing. It has three elements: sensors that detect what kind of pest is approaching, a processing brain to identify them and decide how best to respond, and deterrent devices that can respond intelligently with the right combination of sound or light. These can be scattered widely to encompass any area that needs protection, even if its the size of a plantation.

Then it is loaded with a library of predator sounds, animal alarm calls and irritating tones, as well as its own self-generated noises anything we would consider as scary or startling, says senior researcher Ashley Tews. What constitutes a scary sound is an ongoing area of species-dependent research. However, previous work indicates that leopard and tiger growls can make elephants depart the scene. Its als...

Horrifying New Study Shows People Willing to Hurt Complete Strangers Just to Obey Authority "IndyWatch Feed National"

TFTP| For the state to make war, it must convince the populace that killing other people is just and necessary. Many different rationalizations have cropped up over the millennia from controlling resources to exterminating races to fighting terrorism but murdering strangers requires a particular obedience to authority.

Fifty years ago, psychologist Stanley Milgram conducted the Milgram experiment, which measured the willingness of study participants to hurt others, even when it conflicts with their personal conscience, in the interest of obeying authority. The results, published in 1963, showed that a very high percentage of participants were willing to follow orders and cause serious injury to others.

The researchers recruited 80 participants (40 men and 40 women), with an age range from 18 to 69, for the study. Participants had up to 10 buttons to press, each a higher shock level. The results show that the level of participants obedience towards instructions is similarly high to that of the original Milgram studies.

They found that 90% of the people were willing to go to the highest level in the experiment.

Study co-author Tomasz Grzyb noted that the vast majority of people claimed they would never behave in such a man...

Does Mental Illness Exist? "IndyWatch Feed National"

In this interview for ABC Australia, leading psychology professor Peter Kinderman discusses why we need alternative ways of understanding and supporting people in distress that take into account social and environmental factors, not just biology.

Mental health issues are hugely significant worldwide, but are we approaching them in the most effective and humane way? A leading professor of psychology says that everybodys crazy but nobodys illmeaning that seeing mental distress as an illness is the wrong approach. We need a model of care which supports people who are distressed because of their social and life circumstances.

Since India is getting the Green Guernsey and the US is getting a wrist slap, we know for sure this chart is not based on actual CO2 emission trends, or perhaps even any numbers.

The US, after all, has reduced emissions more than anywhere else while India is doubling its coal mining. Is that what we should aim for?

Australia, meanwhile, can never do enough, despite reducing our per capita emissions by a phenomenal 28% from 1990-2013. We sacrificed our electrical grids, have implemented an Emissions Trading Scheme and say we are aiming for the same obscenely tough 28% reduction that is the fashion despite being a heavy industrial quarry, with the lowest population density, biggest distances, and highest electricity costs in the world. To make it harder on ourselves the chief commodity we are disadvantaging happens to be our second largest export industry. Despite all this, CAN ranks Australia Very low.

Gautum Adani has Indias government under control, now Australias, too? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Carmichael coal mine magnate Gautam Adani: from school dropout to $12bn empire, The Age 18 Nov 17 
Adanis push to build a mega coal mine in Queensland has polarised opinions nationwide. It should come as no surprise: the billionaire behind the project has long been a focus of controversy in his native India.
Tim Elliott
According to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, the 55-year-old has a net worth of $US9.9 billion ($12.9 billion), placing him among the 10 richest people in India. As chairman of Adani Group, which he founded three decades ago, he presides over an empire with interests in mining, ports, power plants, real estate, renewable energy, food, and even defence
To Australians, however, he is best known for his proposed $16.5 billion Carmichael coal mine, to be built in central Queenslands Galilee Basin. Construction was scheduled to start in October, but has been delayed due to political and financing issues. Should the mine proceed, it will be one of the largest in the world roughly five times the size of Sydney Harbour and produce up to 60 million tonnes of coal per year for anywhere between 50 and 60 years, all of which will be exported, the bulk of it to India.
Adani has also been willing to operate at the very limits of Indias notoriously murky business world. His companies have been implicated in multiple instances of alleged corruption, including tax evasion, bribery, money laundering and large-scale illegal exports. In 2007, India&#821...
