When is a record not a record? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Its been  cold here in Brisbane for the last few days, at least by our subtropical standards, with overnight minimums of 6 degrees in the city, and negative temperatures in  towns like Stanthorpe in the nearby Granite Belt. That occasioned lots of news coverage, with the observation that this was the coldest temperature weve had since 2014 and one of the coldest since 2000. The same was true for much of Eastern Australia. Melbourne had its coldest morning in several years, and  a couple of towns in NSW had the lowest minimum for several decades.

All of these are records in the trivial sense that we record the temperature every day, but none of them are records in the commonly used sense of lowest (or highest) value in the relevant record. That didnt stop the usual denialist suspects claiming a RECORD (all caps in original) and evidence of global cooling. The Daily Mail  claimed Australias east coast shivers through its coldest EVER morning even though the sub-headlines made it clear this wasnt true.

Whats striking here is that the same people who are willing to claim that the Bureau of Meteorology is part of a world-wide warmist conspiracy to doctor climate records are eagerly credulous about any piece of data that suits their case. Next time we get record heat, the conspiracy theories will be wheeled out again, but for now the Bureau is an unquestionable source of scientific evidence.

To take this news a little more seriously, its important to remember that there are vast numbers of records that can potentially be broken on any given day highest and lowest maxima and minima, for a given month, in any location where weather is recorded. That means we need either to confine attention to a limited number of records most obviously mean global temperatures or look at statistical measures, such as the relative frequency of new records for cold and heat. Both of these measures give the answer that is by now obvious* from experience: the climate globally and Australia is getting warmer.

Sydney vacancy rate jumps "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Sydney vacancies rising

The latest building activity figures confirmed that the record number of apartments under construction in Sydney is now morphing into a surge in completions.

June is always a seasonally soft month for rental markets, but the latest release from SQM Research recorded a vacancy rate jumping all the way to 2.8 per cent for Sydney.

That's well up from 2 per cent a year earlier.

Vacancies were very high in the Hills District at 4.9 per cent.

But the inner suburbs have by no means been immune as apartments complete across the city. 


There's a certain seasonal aspect to this.

Indeed, Australia's capitals are becoming more seasonal than ever with net overseas migration peaking in the warmer months, and hundreds of thousands of international students coming and going in recent years - but there's also high level of new supply for the city to deal with.

Around the traps

Melbourne's vacancy rate was just 1.6 per cent in the month of June 2018.

However, Melbourne now has more dwellings under construction than at any time in its history, as well as a range of transport, infrastructure, and commercial projects. 

Nationally, the vacancy rate declined from a year earlier from 2.5...

Big public meeting in Melbourne defends the ABC "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Contributed by members of the Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance (MEAA)

Yesterday afternoon (Sunday 15 July), two thousand people came to a public meeting organised by the Friends of the ABC at Melbourne Town Hall. They came to voice their opposition to the defunding of the public broadcaster and the threat of its privatisation.

The level of passion that compelled so many to take part, is best summed up in a series of polls over the last few years, which show the public broadcaster is trusted more than any other institution in Australia. The ABC is trusted far more than any other media (80 percent), and its services to the community are valued (80 percent again).

A small part of thew crowd at the Melbourne
Town Hall meeting

The meeting was chaired by Professor Peter Greste, whose freedom from Egyptian detention for reporting on events there, was won through an international campaign. A range of celebrities spoke to the audience, in person, or through video or written message.  The Greens and Labor expressed support and objectives of the Friends of the ABC.

While many do have their criticisms of the ABC, few would deny that it at least does provide some capacity for other points of view, plays a keys role in the promotion of Australian culture and the training of talent, and its role in providing communications and information in times of great need.

These are precisely the reasons why there are those who have taken on the mission to get rid of it. And the defenders understand this clearly. This was shown at the Town Hall, where special attention was given to the Institute for Public Affairs (API), which has been at the head of the drive against the ABC, to Rupert Murdoch, who seeks to complete his hold over Australian media.

A relentless war is being waged on the back of arguing that government should not be involved in media and that public funding gets in the way of market competition. Neither argument hold water. The control of the government on what the ABC broadcasts is limited. Otherwise governments would have silenced it long ago. Although there ids control over the budget,...

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is hosting a global campaign #WithRefugees and it is inviting Refugee Welcome Zone Mayors around Australia to participate in an initiative to highlight the important work cities all over the world are doing to promote inclusion, bring communities together and support refugees. 

ECCV encourages Victorian local councils to consider participating in this global initiative to mark this significant international day. ECCV Chairperson Cr. Kris Pavlidis who is also the Mayor of Whittlesea City Council states it is essential that local councils lead their communities with compassion and unity.

ECCV will host its annual event Campfire Stories to acknowledge the importance of mutual understanding. The event is an experience where every day Victorians from refugee backgrounds share their stories.

The first of two Campfire Stories for 2018 will be in partnership with Welcome to Australia and Asylum Seekers Resource Centre on June 19th at Siteworks in Brunswick.

The second 2018 Campfire Stories will be in partnership with Welcome to Australia and Multicultural Arts Victoria as part of the Emerge in Yarra festival on July 25th at the Abbotsford Convent Precinct. To book, please register using Eventbrite.   

Cr. Kris Pavlidis says the ECCV is excited about local municipalities leading the way in their communities.

Hard science can be undertaken on 'anomalies.' "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Dear readers,

I note that tomorrow, Sydney researcher Bill Chalker and abductee Peter Khoury are speaking in my home town of Melbourne at a VUFOA sponsored event. I am looking forward to going along as a silent observer. I am hoping that the duo may be providing some updated information about the physical evidence aspects of Peter's experiences. For readers who may be unaware of these details, which involve DNA analyses here is a link.

The 'Ata' anomaly

Coincidently, DNA analyses of an apparently anomalous skeleton, which some have suggested is extraterrestrial, features in a US CNN report dated 22 March 2018. 

A mummified skeleton was found 15 years ago in the Atacama Desert in Chile. The recent Dr Steven Greer documentary 'Sirius' which featured this skeleton, strongly proposed that the skeleton was of an extraterrestrial 'alien.' 

However, an article just published in the scientific journal 'Genome Research' reveals that this unusual skeleton is actually human, with multiple bone disease-associated mutations, thus giving it a very unusual appearance. Here is hard science at its best.

The 'Starchild' skull

A second recently published hard science analysis, including DNA work, reports on an unusual 900 year old skull found in the 1930's in Mexico. US researcher Lloyd Pye initiated work on this skull between 1999 and 2014 looking for evidence as to the possibilit...
