One of things that chronic illness is really good at is creating lots of grief and guilt. It can feel like you have lost the person who you once were.  The capable, active, energetic and independent person who used to be able to get things done, stay out late, burn the candle at both ends and bounce back after a good nights sleep and eat whatever they wanted. Becoming chronically ill is a life-changing event that affects every single area of your life, and the worst impact it can have is on your relationship with your partner.



New Zealand outlet positively reviews Disaster Capitalism film "IndyWatch Feed Melbourne"

My film Disaster Capitalism with director Thor Neureiter continues to spread around the world. Thor was recently in Melbourne for the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival and the film is screening soon in Australia, the UK and elsewhere.

New Zealand outlet Foreign Control Watchdog has published a review of the film written by Jeremy Agar:


The years roll by but the news from Afghanistan scarcely changes. From the dry hills in landlocked Asia we glimpse mad mullahs shooting their rifles into the air. We see Humvees straining up a mountain pass and wait for the ambush. Underneath the banner news rolls through: a suicide truck has blown up a dozen pedestrians in Kabul.  

Few of the many disasters that our information screens send our way are as wearying as the scenes from this war, the one that 30 years ago was dubbed the forgotten war because sometimes, back then, it wasnt getting much air time. These days were all too likely to hear the inevitable soothing words that follow from the President, but whoever he is this time, no-one is listening.

On comes an American general. Just a few more troops, he assures us, and all will be well. Just a few more years and well deliver you a shiny new democracy. Be patient. Rome wasnt built in a day.But despite the assurances of the nation builders, peace in Afghanistan hasnt been built in centuries. The waste, the futility of it all has a cartoonish quality: the US Army as Homer Simpson; the jihadi as Jihadi. Boring. We flick the channel to the newest cooking show.

Its the lack of any of this tedium that makes Antony Loewensteins analysis so welcome. By steering clear from clich were allowed to see Afghanistan as the sort of place an open plain, not some dizzying crag that is not all that different from some parts of Loewensteins native Australia, perhaps, or America. He gets driven just an hour from the capital and talks to some quite normal locals. They were promised decent jobs and social development from a mine. It becomes clear that the foreign corporation never intended to make good on the deal, and that the Governments undertaking to hold the company to account was similarly fraudulent.

Back in Kabul Loewenstein seeks answers from the bureaucrats who oversee the mining industry, No, Mr X is unavailable; Mr Y is busy. Mr Z? No, it is not possible. Leave the building. In other words, standard obstruction, standard corruption.....


Dieting and why its not the way to go about weight loss healthy international students blog

Nowadays lots of people want to lose weight fast. There is no such way as it is all about the hard work and effort. People see all those skinny pictures of people in the media and think that I want to look like that! But what they dont realize is that many of those people have been airbrushed to look great for that business.


There are many diets out there on the market, some of which are restrictive like the Paleo, 5:2 diet etc. Most of them dont work and most of the people will crave other foods.

In The Shape Were in, by Bossley (2012) she says that most of the restrictive diets are dangerous because they cut out certain food groups. This book is about obesity and the diets that are out there in this world and how they shorten our lives. We need all five of them to survive. People die just by trying to survive on these diets.

And people on diets are more likely to regain the weight after they finish that diet. They will go back to their old eating habits. Goin...

Strawberry crumble Green Gourmet Giraffe

It is mid-July and yet we have been buying lovely sweet local strawberries as recently as last weekend at the Farmers Market.  I have been chatting to people at the stall about how surprised they are to still have strawberries growing in midwinter when they are usually doing maintenance and having a break.  We have been loving the strawberries and eating lots of them fresh.  However I have had some dreams that I might turn some into a crumble.

When Sylvia's friend came over for a sleepover last weekend, Sylvia put in an order for strawberry crumble.  So I baked while they watched Disney's Descendents, a movie I am happy to leave and potter about in the kitchen.  We served the crumble with custard.  It was a lovely way to warm up in a house without a decent heater.   

I'd like to claim it helped the girls go to sleep quickly but unfortunately not.  They slept late and were up early.  It amused and pleased me that they watched Back in Time for Dinner the next morning.  It is an ABC tv series where a family experiences life in 7 different decades.

I loved this intimate way of learning more about different decades, with an emphasis on food, as well as housework, recreation and technology.  The standout moment was when 10 year old Olivia names a fish Jeff when shown a fisht...
