My daughters have moved out of home and left behind lots of no longer wanted stuff from the last several years, which I'd love to find new homes for.

There's a friendship bracelet kit, balloon animals, chocolate fountain, range of stationary items including good quality colour pencils, cork board,  pink wooden heart, door hanger, selection of A4 folders, folder paper, dividers and document wallets, collection of make up purses, skipping rope - see photos below.

I'll leave it all out on our nature strip at 10 Rasmussen Court Coburg for the next few days (weather permitting) so come and help yourself to anything that takes your fancy!

Tourists on Scooters: Why So Many Dickheads? "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Terima kasih. Terima kasih, I repeat over and over, till my throat goes dry and the Indonesian words of gratitude become a meaningless, Australian-flavoured gibberish.

I wince. And fiddle with the label of the plastic water bottle that Ketut pressed gently into my hands. Made chucks me a toothy grin and tells me to breathe as he treats my left leg with Betadine. His hands, baked golden by years of sun with deep ridges of age, dance softly along my calf, imploring my body to express where it hurts. Through salty, wobbly vision, the faces of concerned onlookers swim in and out of focus.

A cat smelling of something rotten, with sticky, sweat-saturated fur, stares at me through a nearby bush. He cocks his head and twitches his nose as I squeeze my eyes shut. Taking off my grit-stained glasses, I rest my head in my hands.

This scene is the result of 19 years of unawareness, and borderline carelessness, of my own mortality. Well, thats not entirely true. In fact, as a rule, I refuse to eat anything past its use-by-date and never leave home without a thick sheen of SPF50+. Yet, somehow, last month I found myself crumpled on the edge of a T-junction with my ankle wedged tightly beneath a freshly-rented scooter.

Its a common enough story for young travellers.

Let go of your inhibitions! they say. Be free, wild and adventurous!

Sure. Fuck yeah! I can do that.

It seems that most Westerners become well acquainted with the hot sting of gravel-grated flesh when scooter-venturing through Southeast Asia. Particularly in Bali, where a culture of helmetless, Aussie Bintang fiends thrives despite the barrage of figures released by the Department of Foreign Affairs each year.

An Australian dies in Bali every nine days.

For me, upon arrival on this beautifully balmy island, and with my parents more concerned about angry Mount Agung, the volcano, than the mortality rate of scooter-loving tourists, the statistics faded into white noise and felt about as sobering as Melbournes Dumb Ways to Die campaign. Like thousands of other Western travellers, I felt as if death from misadventure just wasnt me.

As night falls, illuminated by the ever-faithful florescent glow of 24/7 convenience stores, the main streets of Kuta come alive with the shouts of young travellers. Men and women with fre...

Madge Digest #149 February 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Many thanks for your submissions on WAs Farmer Protection Legislation and for signing Stop GM Golden Rice letter asked for in the previous digest. They make a huge difference!

  1. Your help is needed again to get new GMOs regulated by this Wednesday 21st Feb. 

  2. GMO food labelling a possibility in South Australia!

  3. Keep yourself grounded and happy with others who care.

1)Your help needed again to get new GMOs regulated by this Wednesday 21st Feb

Put in a brief submission by Wednesday 21st February (suggested content below). Some scientists and industries see New GM as a bonanza for their careers and profits although it is only five years old and has no history of safe use. We suggest mentioning:

  1. The techniques (CRISPR, RNAi, gene drives and all other new techniques mentioned in this Friends of the Earth GM 2.0 Australian Regulators Engineering the Truth report) are GM.
  2. The new  GM techniques need safety assessments, regulation, labelling and monitoring. The developers of these techniques must be fully liable, including financially, for their products and actions.
  3. The Australian Department of Health has advised the World Trade Organisation* of its proposal to change the Gene Technology Act. I am concerned this may remove the opportunity to acknowlege these new technologies are GM and will close down public discussion of precaution and alternatives. 

If you add a sentence or two of your own it gives your submission much more power.

GM, old and new, thrives on secrecy, manipulation of science, exclusi...

Eat It - 18 February 2018 "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

Have you ever heard of a condition called Orthorexia? We hadn't until recently, so we chatted to Dr Rosemary Stanton about what it is (a compulsion to only eat "clean" food) and how it's developed since the 1990s.

Victor Persinette is man who spends a lot of time underground at the Spring Street Grocer's cheese room. He popped in to speak about how to best mature cheese, how blue cheese is formed, and some of the history of various cheese varieties.

To finish today's show we spoke to the man behind Duckboard Place's Lee Ho Fook, Victor Liong. Originally from Sydney we chatted about how Melbourne is perhaps more open to progressive intepretations of Chinese cuisine, and also how he cooks his simple (but delicious) egglant dish.

Cost of tax breaks soars on profits selling homes "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Government spending on tax breaks is set to hit a record $170 billion this year, largely as a result of an explosion in the value of concession for the family home.

Treasury's Tax Expenditures Statement required under the Charter of Budget Honesty and released quietly after the close of business on Thursday puts the value of the exemption from capital gains tax for owner occupiers at $74 billion this financial year, up from $66.5 billion last financial year, which was itself $5 billion more than Treasury had forecast.

Four years ago, before house prices shot up, it was worth $46.5 billion. Treasury says by 2020-21 it will be worth $91 billion.

The exemption releases owner occupiers from the obligation to pay capital gains tax on profits made from the sale of their primary residence. Those profits have soared in recent years as prices have climbed, especially in Sydney and Melbourne. Investors pay capital gain at half the income tax rate, a concession the Treasury costs at $10 billion, up from $4.4 billion four years ago.

The cost of tax expenditures is tabulated so that the government can compare the budgetary impact of direct spending in the form of grants with indirect spending in the form of tax breaks.

The government costs assistance to the aged at $64.3 billion and assistance to the unemployed and the sick at $10 billion.

The concession tax treatment of superannuation contributions is costed at $16.9 billion. The concessional treatment of super fund earnings is costed at $19.25 billion. The two figures can't be added together to get a total for super tax concessions, because if contributions were fully taxed the funds would earn less.

The exemption of so-called fresh foods from goods and services tax costs $7 billion per year. Among the items exempt because they are used to prepare food at home is sugar, although commercially prepared products containing sugar such as soft drinks are subject to the GST.

The GST exemption for education services including private school fees will cost $4.55 billion in 2017-18 and $5.65 billion in 2020-21. The exemption for medical services costs $4.1 billion.

The cost of the farm management deposit system, which gives tax advantages to qualifying farmers, is is expected to double from $245 million in 2016-17 to $560 million in 2017-18.

The figures come as the government attempts to find savings to fund personal income tax cuts in the May budget and reduce the deficit of $21.4 billion.

Historic landmark mansion sold $52.5m suspected offshore Chinese buyer "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

A historic Melbourne mansion that was once Victorias Government House and the home to governors has changed hands for $52.5 million, smashing the states residential price record.

Art dealer Rod Menzies has sold Stonington mansion at 336 Glenferrie Road in the prestigious southeastern suburb of Malvern, public records show.

The buyer is listed as the company JJH & Co, which is directed by Xiao Cao, who in media reports today was suggested to be an accountant representing an undisclosed party.

Mr Menzies has been contacted for comment. Former Marshall White agent Sean Cussell is understood to have sold the home and declined to comment when contacted by The Australian.

Prestige real estate agents in the citys leafy southeast raised eyebrows at the size of the deal, suggesting the buyer was an offshore Chinese purchaser who had also bought the Noorilim Estate in regional Victoria although a caveat or title documents have yet to be lodged.

The grand Malvern home, built in 1890, was bought by Mr Menzies for $17.5 million in 2008, records show.

Stonington became the home of Victorias governor in 1901 before being purchased by the state in 1928 and served as the states Government House until 1931. It has also been a girls school, hospital and teachers college.

The price paid is substantially higher than the last Victorian record, where mystery Chinese buyer Qi Yang placed a caveat on former Mirvac...

Two of Groovin The Moos international acts have announced sideshows "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Last week, Groovin The Moo unleashed the lineup for their 2018 round of festivals, and as expected, its an absolute corker. But now, just in case you arent able to make your way to some of the dates on this regional tour, two of the fests international acts have just done us a solid and announced some sideshows for their upcoming Aussie visit.

Back for its 14th year, Groovin The Moo is undoubtedly set to prove itself as one of Australias favourite touring festivals once again.

With huge local names on the bill including Paul Kelly, Alex Lahey, Grinspoon, Baker Boy, Ball Park Music, Tkay Maidza, and Vera Blue, music fans are set to party with some of the finest Aussie musos around. Of course, plenty of international acts join the fest as well, including Claptone, Royal Blood, Duke Dumont, and Portugal. The Man.

Now, two of Groovin The Moos most exciting international visitors are set to perform a a series of sideshows while in the country.

First cab off the rank is Portlands Amin, who has been turning heads in the world of alternative hip-hop for a few years now. With one EP, two mixtapes, and a debut album, Good For You, to his name, Amin is set to absolutely crush his debut Aussie shows, so be sure to check out this invigorating artist when he hits up Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth this May.

But the good news doesnt stop there, because Englands dynamic Lady Leshurr has announced shes showing off her hard-hitting, prolific grime sound to audiences in Brisbane, Sydney, and Perth.

Having released nine mixtapes in as many years, and with countless singles and feature appearances, Lady Leshurr has become one of the most well-known names in the world of UK grime, all without releasing a studio album. Needless to say, Lady Leshurrs upcoming shows are set to be some of the most talked-about this year.

Australias ambition to become global arms dealer "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

My major investigation in the Melbourne Age/Sydney Morning Herald on Australias surging defence industry:

This years Avalon Air Show in Geelong was the first chance for the public to see the long-delayed Joint Strike Fighter in action. At a cost of at least $100 million per aircraft, Canberra is slated to spend $17 billion on 72 F-35s in the coming years.

Manufacturer Lockheed Martin, the worlds biggest defence contractor, has faced countless problems with the plane including cost blowouts (spending more than $US1 trillion and counting), a Pentagon report in January finding 276 deficiencies (with 20 new issues discovered per month) and consistent troubles with overheating and cybersecurity. An Australian contractor on the aircraft was recently hacked, with sensitive material stolen.

None of this dampened the mood at Avalon. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, along with Defence Minister Marise Payne, Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne and Lockheed Martin CEO Marillyn Hewson, praised the plane and Australias growing defence sector.

It is an example of how our defence industry plan is not simply securing our Air Force and our Army and our Navy with the capabilities they need to keep us safe in the 21st century, Turnbull said. It is driving the advanced manufacturing, the jobs, the advanced technology that Australians need to make sure our children and grandchildren have the opportunities in the years ahead.

Billed as Australias premiere showcase of defence, civilian and aerospace equipment, sponsored by the worlds major defence companies such as BAE Systems, Raytheon, Thales, L3, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman, along with Australias Department of Defence and the Victorian Labor government, this year was the largest in Avalons history, with over 210,000 people in attendance.

But away from Avalons glitzy surface, and its promotion of a family-friendly event to watch the worlds most sophisticated aircraft, is a darker reality. Australias defence sector has hugely expanded in  recent years with barely any public discussion, let alone debate in federal parliament.

Its a nearly impossible task to discover exactly what Australia is selling and to whom be...

Our guest this episode believes there is a third way which challenges the dichotomous view that when it comes to forestry, one ought to be either a conservationist or profiteer. Rowan Reid is a scientist and himself a farmer and forester. Hes also been a Senior Lecturer at Melbourne Uni for 20 years, and is the managing director of the not-for profit Australian Agroforestry Foundation. He won the 2001 Australian Eureka Prize for Excellence in Environmental Education for his farmer course: The Australian Master TreeGrower). His farm Bambra Agroforestry Farm in the Otway Ranges is set up as an outdoor classroom and living laboratory for tree growing, and it has had over 10,000 visitors come on tours. Since 1985 hes written or co-authored nine books on related topics, the latest of which and surely his magnum opus, is truly wonderful Heartwood: The Art and Science of Growing Trees for Conservation and Profit.
