HIGH RISE DUCKS Melbourne Fresh Daily

In the Darebin Parklands, the waters of the Darebin Creek and the several ponds through the reserve offer a great environment for many species of waterfowl. Nesting boxes are also provided for these birds and many take advantage of these "apartments" as a secure place to raise their young. Here is a couple of chestnut teal ducks (Anas castanea). Chestnut teals are dabbling ducks found in Australia. They are protected under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1974.

The chestnut teal is darker and a slightly bigger bird than the grey teal. The male has a distinctive green coloured head and mottled brown body. The female has a brown head and mottled brown body. The female is almost identical in appearance to the grey teal. The female chestnut teal has a loud penetrating "laughing" quack repeated rapidly nine times or more.

The chestnut teal is commonly distributed in south-eastern and south-western Australia, while vagrants may occur elsewhere. Tasmania and southern Victoria are the species stronghold, while vagrants can be found as far north as New Guinea and Lord Howe Island. The chestnut teal prefers coastal estuaries and wetlands, and is indifferent to salinity. This bird is an omnivore.

Chestnut teals form monogamous pairs that stay together outside the breeding season, defend the nest site and look after the young when hatched. Nests are usually located over water, in a down-lined tree hollow about 610 m high. Sometimes nests are placed on the ground, among clumps of grass near water. The young hatch and are ready to swim and walk within a day.

Have universities enjoyed rivers of gold? "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

The Australians High Wired column is bemused at the apparent contradictions between UQ VC Peter Hojs narrative of funding cuts and Simon Birminghams claim that universities have benefited from rivers of gold in public funding in recent years.

Its true that there have been some cuts to research funding, although it remains high by historical standards (some trends at page 51 of this pdf). Some increases in equity funding from the Gillard era were trimmed, and performance funding abolished. But these funds were not supporting long-term programs.

Its much harder to claim that there have been cuts to core teaching grants, coming via the Commonwealth Grant Scheme and HELP (which as I keep pointing out, is heavily subsidised). The chart below shows the trend up 50 per cent in real terms since 2008. From the Commonwealths perspective, this certainly looks like a river of gold.


Of course, over the same time there was also a substantial increase in student numbers. From a university perspective, this means that costs went up as well as revenue. For them, revenue per place matters more than total revenue. But over the medium term, universities are ahead on this indicator too. On a per student basis, after adjusting for inflation, we see that total revenue per place is close to record levels for the post-Dawkins era, although public funding as a share of the total has declined over time. This isnt a river of gold, but nor is the stream drying up.

Lawyers network launched "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

 

MALS Lawyers Network Launch

Anouska, Amnesty, MALS Lawyers Network Launch

Melbourne Activist Legal Support (MALS) launched our lawyers network with Amnesty International on the 30th May 2017. CounterAct supports and works with MALS and has found our work increasingly overlapping in recent years as community legal centres get de-funded it is more often up to activists to self educate about the law.

We heard from several lawyers with combined decades of experience in supporting activists and progressive causes Matt Wilson (MALS) Rob Stary, Meghan Fitzgerald and Danya Black.

Rob Stary is well known in Melbourne for providing pro bono representation for activists, but also for working with people who have little resource and need support his work for the people who other lawyers wont touch is written about more in this article.

He shared a strong perspective on the trends of policing that we have seen in the last decade describing them as effectively a paramilitary force.

One recently introduced piece of legislation was highlighted, the charge of resisting emergency services workers which now comes with a mandatory 6 month imprisonment like so many laws, may have been purportedly designed for one purpose in this case, a need to protect the important work that emergency workers do, but could be used against activists. He advised lawyers who may be briefing activists to be careful about how they talk about resisting arrest charges.

He also talked about patterns of police intelligence gathering. Many groups suspected of terrorism, no matter how tenuous the links, are infiltrated, and of course we all know that even peaceful activist groups are regu...

Wombats Bush Band "The Bush Dance Album" 1988 Cassette "GroovUs Feed Aartists"

Again, we owe a vote of thanks to the Victorian Bush Folkie for this rip. This cassette tape was obviously in very good condition and my contribution was to simply remove tape and equipment noise and to encode the tracks.

There are about 48 separate dance tunes in this album in 11 tracks with each track representing a particular dance style. Many of the tracks also include vocal renditions. The tunes are mainly a mix of British and Australian standards e.g. Waves of Tory, Maire's Wedding, Starry Night for a Ramble, Back again to Yarrawonga. I have included details of the tunes for each track in the "comment" tag and they are also listed in the included graphics.

I have no idea who the performers were and, if you know, please let us know. The quality of the music is very good. It is a well produced album.

Tracklist (medleys)
1. Oxo Reel
2. Pride of Erin
3. Seige of Ennis
4. Evening Three Step
5. Heel and Toe Polka
6. Barn Dance
7. Wombat Polka
8. Irish Trot
9. Waltz Country Dance
10. Gay Gordons
11. Gallopede
