Those who attended the last ARAG meeting will be aware we discussed the Construction Vibration Guide for Homeowners, which promises that:
For residents and homeowners facing imminent large-scale construction, it provides detailed outlines on how to prepare for construction, how to document it, what to do if the home develops damage traceable to the construction, how to recognise damage, how to pursue a claim for repair reimbursement, relevant ground vibration standards, the impact pile-driving equipment that needs to be used to minimise cosmetic or structural damage to homes, the correct vibration monitoring equipment, and more.
A copy of the guide may be found here.
I dont use illicit drugs. Im 61. Age doesnt stop a lot of people in Bellingen, Northern Rivers, New South Wales Australia, where I live, from using illicit drugs, even heroin. Most whove used heroin for a long time are long dead.
No matter what I write, what Im writing wont stop people using illicit drugs.
But here goes
In 2010, I observed someone very close to me with very serious drug psychosis through the the window in a padded cell in the lock-up section for drug addicts and the mentally ill called Kiloh, the psychiatric ward at Prince Alfred Hospital in Randwick, Sydney. This person had been using multiple drugs in a serious drug binge lasting four months. They were mainly using very strong laced hydroponic marijuana. This type of marijuana, grown by bikies and other criminals in houses converted to drug labs, caves and the Australian bush, is at least thirty times stronger than the bush-grown marijuana we used to smoke in the 1970s back in New Zealand. Then it is laced with amphetamines or whatever these criminals have available.
I first observed someone using heroin in 1972 when I was 16. A friend has been doing a carpentry course in Huntley, near Auckland, New Zealand. He made friends with some teenagers aged about 16 from Auckland. I visited him at one of his friends houses in Remuera, Auckland, one of Aucklands most affluent suburbs. In a large bedroom on the basement level a young man was in bed resting. He got up sleepily, and injected himself with heroin, and lay back on the bed and fazed out, very high.
I was always scared of heroin and strong drugs. Many of my Auckland friends when the family moved there in 1974, used LSD. I never used it. I smoked a lot of weed (marijuana) from the age of 15 to 19, when I became a Christian. I was always Christian in a way, but I did the 70s counter-culture teen rebellion thing.
One of the home group leaders under my leadership at Christian Life Centre Darlinghurst, Sydney, the early name of Hillsong, in the 1980s, Michael Driscoll, suicided in the 1990s in Ireland. Michael went back on heroin, which he was on with his friend, the famous Australian painter Brett Whitely, and many other artists and their friends in Sydney in the 1970s, prior to Michael becoming a Christian. Jonathan Page and others helped Michael find Christ. Then in the 1990s he lost his way, moved to Ireland, went back on heroin, and suicided. I attended Michaels funeral in Neutral Bay in the 1990s.
Australia has maintained a Blockchain-friendly position with its government-backed exploration of Blockchain technology for various applications. Now, it is getting ready to issue the worlds first Blockchain bond upon being mandated by the World Bank.
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) will reportedly create, allocate, transfer and manage the bond using Blockchain technology. The $AUD Kangaroo bond, named bond-i, will be delivered on a private Ethereum blockchain being utilized by the World Bank and CBA in Washington and Sydney, respectively. The Blockchain platform has been designed and developed by the CBA Innovation Labs Blockchain Centre of Excellence and an independent review of its technical architecture, security and resilience has been conducted by Microsoft.
The initiative is a part of the World Banks mandate to reduce poverty and promote development, as a part of which, it issues bonds worth US$50-US$60 billion annually for encouraging sustainable development. The World Bank is focused on helping countries to leverage the technology for sustainable development, and it aims to explore disruptive technologies such as blockchain to expedite its progress towards the fulfilment of Sustainable Development Goals.
A media release on CBAs website states This collaboration built on the longstanding partnership between the two organisations, with the World Banks 70-year track record of innovation in the capital markets and CBAs globally recognised Blockchain Centre of Excellence combining to deliver the project successfully.
In 2017, the CBA had issued a prototype cryptobond for Queensland Treasury Corporation utilizing its capital markets blockchain platform, and become the first government entity both in Australia and in the world to do so.
The Australian government has also been proactive in investigating the technology for its efficiency gains and implementing it across a range of sectors. The country has signed a five-year $740 million deal with IBM to use crypto and other new technologies to enhance data security. Australias Department of Home Affairs (DHA) is researching the technology, hoping to apply it in international trade and supply chain management for better security and transparency. Another area where the country is aiming to implement the technology is for tracking the provenance of s...
Slow down nuclear process: Sweeney, Whyalla News, Louis Mayfield 7 August 18 An environmentalist is urging the federal government to slow down their site selection process for the National Radioactive Waste Management Facility as a community vote looms for Kimba and Hawker.
Nuclear Free Campaigner Dave Sweeney has accused Federal Resources Minister Matt Canavan of being on a politically-influenced timeline to lock in a location for the nuclear facility.
Last night it was heartening to hear that its not the regulator who is pushing this timeline its politics, Mr Sweeney said.
Instead of rushing this decision we need to seriously explore the long-term mana...
August 10, 2018: The ABC reports that until recently, Australia had been free of the deadly white spot prawn disease which is harmless to people but has the potential to wipe out both farmed and wild prawns. Quarantine border checks were intended to prevent the disease from being imported in raw prawns.
The ABC reports that, despite an outbreak of the disease in Queensland in 2016 documented by Four Corners, the Federal government had not revealed that two of 101 retail samples taken from Melbourne and Sydney retail outlets in May and June 2018 returned strong positives for white spot disease, while another four returned weak positives. In 2016, seven prawn farms at Logan, near the Gold Coast, had to destroy all their stock.
In contrast, when white spot was confirmed in 2016 in the wild in Moreton Bay, after quarantine regulations were tightened, the Queensland Government imposed a movement restriction order for raw wild caught prawns, crustaceans and marine worms between Caloundra and the New South Wales border.
In December 2017 a report by Australia's inspector-general of biosecurity, Dr Helen Scott-Orr, found a major biosecurity failure likely led to the 2016 outbreak. More than a $100 million of taxpayer money has since been spent on compensation, clean-up, monitoring and increased border security.
Containers of imported prawns are now required to be tested for the virus at the country of origin and again when they reach Australia, but the recent Melbourne and Sydney evidence shows this may not be effective.
The ABC reports that the Queensland Seafood Industry Association believes the differences between the response from the state and federal governments boiled down to international trade.
"Unfortunately our industry has been sacrificed on that altar of trade and it's never been good enough, said the Association spokesperson, Mr Eric Perez.
If we put restrictions on then suddenly, 'Oh well you export to our countries, what if we put restrictions on what you export out' so it is a trade issue," Mr Perez...

On 19 July, the Knesset the Israeli parliament passed the Nation-State Law, which officially relegates Palestinians in Israel to the rank of second-class citizens. This has effectively enshrined Israels decades-old system of apartheid in the nations Basic Laws: its de facto constitution. The legislation stipulates that only Jewish people have the right to self-determination

By Sonia Hickey and Ugur Nedim Many believe the culture of misconduct in the Queensland Police Force (QPS) is worse than ever before, even poorer than prior to the states 1987 Fitzgerald Inquiry into police corruption. Despite recommendations for better accountability mechanisms, police in Queensland and indeed across Australia have largely been left
Australian Bauxite Limited (ABx) announced to the market yesterday that its wholly-owned subsidiary ALCORE Limited will have the rights to employ ALCORE technology throughout the world.
In a press release issued yesterday, ABx said that the technology, which is used in producing aluminium fluoride (AlF3), will be available to ALCORE for utilization as it builds plants abroad. The process will yield more AlF3 at a lower cost in order to meet an ever-expanding demand, especially in the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries.
Plants utilizing the process have already begun construction, with groundwork laid on such a plant in New South Wales last month. Once commissioned, the plant will produce AlF3 for the production of Corethane, a pure hydrocarbon powder derived from coal that can be used either as thermal power or in high-efficiency batteries.
ABxs CEO Ian Levy greeted the news as a major advancement in the ALCORE project and the technology it utilizes.
Step by step, ABx is bringing ALCOREs powerful new bauxite refining technology closer to becoming an important domestic producer and supplier of key AlF3 products for the Australasian aluminium smelters. However, in the longer-term, these global technology rights allow ALCORE Limited to produce AlF3 in any location globally. Creating ALCORE Limited as a project-specific subsidiary is expected to unlock considerable value for shareholders in both the short and medium terms.
ALCORE Technology also produces several valuable co-products including silica fume for the cement industry and Corethane pure hydrocarbons for energy and fuel security. Upside potential includes production of pure AlF3 for Lithium-ion batteries, iron oxide pigments, titanium oxide pigments. Further potential exists for developing ultra-pure products such as high purity alumina (HPA) for the manufacture of scratch-resistant sapphire glass for phones and computer screens.
Based in Sydney, ABx conducts operations in Tasmania, Queensland, and New South Wales. The fir...
