ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie explains economic benefit of the ABC to Australia "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

ABC contributes as much to the economy as it costs the taxpayer: Michelle Guthrie, https://theconversation.com/abc-contributes-as-much-to-the-economy-as-it-costs-the-taxpayer-michelle-guthrie-98553?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=facebookbutton    The Conversation,  Michelle GrattanProfessorial Fellow, University of Canberra  June 19, 2018 

ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie has hit back against critics with a Deloitte Access Economics assessment that the public broadcaster contributed more than A$1 billion to the Australian economy in the last financial year.

This was on a par with the public funding of the organisation, she told the Melbourne Press Club, in an address coming days after the Liberal Federal Council urged the ABC be privatised a call rejected by the government.

Far from being a drain on the public purse, the audience, community and economic value stemming from ABC activity is a real and tangible benefit, she said. The Deloitte study was commissioned by the ABC; Guthrie said its report was still being compiled and would be released next month.

Of the $1 billion, more than a third is economic support for the broader media ecosystem. Far from being Ultimo-centric, the ABC is boosting activity across the country, she said, giving as examples the filming of Mystery Road in the Kimberley and the production of Rosehaven outside Hobart.

Deloitte calculated the ABC was helping sustain more than 6000 full-time equivalent jobs across the economy. It means that for every three full-time equivalent jobs created by the ABC, there are another two supported in our supply chain local artists, writers, technicians, transport workers and many more.

In hard figures, the research shows that the ABC helps to sustain 2500 full-time equivalent jobs in addition to the 4000 women and men who are directly employed by the public broadcaster.

When broken down this equates to more than 500 additional jobs in production companies, over 400 jobs elsewhere in the broadcast sector, and close to 300 full-time equivalent jobs in the professional services.

Amidst the debate over the ABCs purpose and its funding we should all remember that there are 2500 jobs outside public broadcasting at risk in any move to curtail our remit and activities.

Addressing the critics argument that the ABCs about $1 billio...

jtmportland: America is shamelessly torturing children and parents by separating them at the border.... matthew schiavello: photos and words

jtmportland:

America is shamelessly torturing children and parents by separating them at the border. This is current policy. Thats what the USA is now. We torture children as an example and warning and punishment to desperate people seeking refuge. (And justify it by quoting the Bible.) This is the USAs new method.

Taking kids away from their mothers at a young age is torture. They will not recover from the trauma. It will define them for the rest of their lives. There is no justification for it. Warning or punishment: if you can justify this, you simply do not believe in democracy or decency.

As good people, what can we do? We can speak out. Or add this verse to the famous series of statements by Martin Neimoller.

When they came for the immigrants children I did not speak out. Because I was not an immigrant.

You know how it ends.

Then they came for meand there was no one left to speak for me.

There are many good organizations in the US that provide legal representation and bond funds to get parents out of immigration detention and back with their children. One is RAICES: Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services. You can donate here: Raicestexas.org

If you care about your fellow humans, speak out and take action.

If you are not fatigued by all of the horror and suffering around the world.. the ongoing horrors, of Syria and Palestine to name a couple, .. then please consider the above :-)

A bold Crake The Gap Year and Beyond

Spotted Crakes are often seen skulking around the muddy edges of wetlands usually very close to cover so a quick dash can get them back under cover and invisible again. I saw this particular Crake late one sunny afternoon at the small lagoon near the bird hide along the coast at the Treatment plant. He was walking quite boldly across the lagoon to the other side. Though as the sun dipped a bit he made the sudden dash back to the other side and straight back into cover.

Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and Theosophy - or trickery? ART and ARCHITECTURE, mainly

The first part comes from the Blavatsky Archives; many thanks. Helena Petrovna von Hahn was born at Ekaterinoslav in Southern Russia, in 1831. She was the daughter of Colonel Peter von Hahn, and writer Helena de Fadeyev. Her maternal grandmother was Princess Helena Dolgorukov, noted botanist-writer. After her mothers early death in 1842, Helena was brought up with the grandparents. This clever linguist was a sensitive child, and was soon aware that her psychic powers puzzled others.

At 18 she married the much older Nikifor Blavatsky, Vice-Governor of Yerivan Province. The marriage was never consummated and she soon escaped and travelled across Turkey, Egypt and Greece. Only 2 years later, in London in 1851, she met the Mahatma/Master Morya of her childhood visions, and fully accepted his guidance.

In 1852, Helena left for Canada, the USA, Mexico, South America and the West Indies, then went via the Cape to India and Tibet. Then to Britain, America again, India via Japan and the Straits. She entered Tibet through Kashmir, under-going part of her occult training with her Mahatma. She was again in France, Germany and Russia. From 1860-5, she lived in the Caucasus, experiencing a severe physical and psychic crisis. She travelled via the Balkans, Greece, Egypt, Syria and Italy. Then to India & Tibet, meeting the Mahatma Koot Hoomi. Then back to Cyprus, Greece and the Middle East.

 
The Extraordinary Life & Influence of Helena Blavatsky,  
by Sylvia Cranston, 
TarcherPerigee, 1993

Why the constant travel? In 1873, Helena was specifically instructed by her Teacher to go to New York to meet Col Henry Olcott. The Mahatmas believed Helena was the best means to offer the world the accumulated Wisdom of the ages, verified by generations of Seers; that body of Truth of which all religions were branches of one parent-tree. They co-founded the Theosophical Society of America  in Nov 1875, where Olcott was made President for life.

The Theosophical Society's goals were to:
