Melbourne ABC Radio Jock Jon Faine Drops The N-Word On Air "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Melbourne radio host Jon Faine has dropped the n-word on air this morning, during a discussion over the growing storm in America around sporting stars refusing to stand for the American national anthem.

During his popular ABC 774 morning program, Faine took a call from Cam in Caroline Springs.

Things went downhill almost immediately.

CALLER: I just wanted to say about the America sports issue, I saw a film on the weekend, I am not your negro, about the civil rights activist, James Baldwin and.

FAINE: [Interrupting] I think its actually is it Im not your negro?

CALLER: Thats correct, yes

FAINE: Ok, or is it Im not your N*gger? Which one is it?

CALLER: Negro.

FAINE: Its Negro, okay, because theyre both words that are completely not used in polite conversation anywhere in North America now.

A note to Jon Faine theyre not used anywhere in Australia in polite conversation either and particularly not on public radio.

The on-air segment was tweeted out by prominent Melbourne comedian Aamer Rahman a short time ago. Rahman had the decency to bleep out the offending word.

The racial sensitivities of Melbourne ABC hosts are coming under increasing scrutiny of late last week, AFL star Hretier Lumumba took aim at Waleed Aly, now host of Channel 10s The Project but at one time the fill-in presenter for Faine, over an interview that Aly aired recently.

 

NEW MATILDA IS CURRENTLY BEING THREATENED WITH A LAWSUIT BY CHANNEL 7 FOR CALLING TODAY TONIGHT TRASHY. YOU CAN HELP US ESTABLISH A LEGAL FIGHTING FUND BY CHIPPING IN A FEW BUCKS HERE.

 

In a lengthy essay, Lumumba accused Aly of running interference for white supremacists by grilling him over his experience with racism within the AFL, and stating on air that there was more goodwill towards Lumumba from the AFL than Lumumba realized.

Lumumba blew the whistle on AFL racism in an SBS documentary, Fair Game, which...

Lauren: Walkatjurra Walkabout: For country, against uranium. River Red Gum "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Walkatjurra Walkabout: For country, against uranium. River Red Gum: There are many types of activism. I find a lot of importance in engaging in the various campaigns which occur in Melbourne and get a lot of strength and motivation from the many passionate people I meet.
What I experienced on the Walkatjurra Walkabout was all of this and more. The walkabout is an annual one month long walk against uranium which starts at the proposed Wiluna uranium mine site near the Wiluna township (approx. 5hrs north of Kalgoorlie) and ends in Leonora. This year marked the 7th year that the walk has taken place but thats 7 years of a 40 year ongoing battle that the traditional custodians have been fighting against mining and exploration companies.

INAUGURAL RAY EVANS MEMORIAL ORATION "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

It is with great pleasure that we would like to invite members and supporters of the Australian Taxpayers Alliance as well as the many many friends of the late and dearly beloved Ray Evans, to the Inaugural Ray Evans Memorial Oration.

A giant of Australian politics whose passionate zeal transformed centre-right politics, Ray was an inspiration and a mentor to countless individuals. A founding member of the HR Nicholls Society, the Bennalong Society, The Samuel Griffiths Society, the Galatians Group, and the Lavoisier Group,  all of which he was either President or Treasurer of, his contribution to Australian politics can not be Overstate.

As John Roskam wrote in the Australian Financial Review

Ray Evans had more influence on politics and policy in Australia than 95 per cent of MPs who have been in the federal Parliament, and 99 per cent of MPs who have ever been in a state Parliament. In some way or another, Evans was involved in, and helped shape, the course of every major policy debate in Australia of the last 30 years. And he did it all as a private citizen who volunteered his own time for the public good. He was the epitome of a concerned and engaged member of the community.

Through the establishment of this annual oration, Rays vision for a more free and prosperous Australia will be able to live on.

There can be no-one more appropriate to deliver the Inaugural Oration than Rays old boss and dear friend, Hugh Morgan AC. Ray wrote over 200 speeches during his time at Western Mining, orchestrating the companys media and public relations strategy,  and together they changed the direction of political debate in Australia.

A former President of the Business Council of Australia, a Board Member of the Reserve Bank of Australia, the Founding Chairman of Asia Society Australia, and a former president of the Lavosier Group we are very grateful to Mr Morgan for delivering the inaugural oration.

The venue shall be one of Rays favourite Restaurants and regular haunts the Red Emperor in Southbank, and includes a banquet meal and 3 hour drinks package.

WHEN : December 01, 2017 at 6pm 9pm

WHERE : Red Emperor Southbank

The Little Bird Weekly News "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

Its hard to believe the weeks are spinning by the way they are. Its only a week out from close of submissions to the Senate Inquiry into the Cashless Debit Card Bill and Im up to my neck in code, creating an open data project using QLD crime & social statistics. With new trials of cashless income management just announced in Hervey Bay and Bundaberg and the Inquiry bearing down on us, I thought it would be useful to take a close look at the kinds of statistics being used to argue for income management. Creating a new open data project is a significant undertaking however I hope to have it up within the coming week, either before or just after submissions close on Friday 29 September.

Some good news this week is that my submission to speak about open data and financial transparency at LinuxConf 2018 was accepted and I also received a bursary to attend the ACOSS conference in a few weeks in Melbourne. Unfortunately, the bursary only covers the conference ticket so it remains to be seen whether I can fund the travel and accommodation to go to Melbourne for the event. If you would like to support my work, you can become a Patreon Patron. I promise to update my goals as soon as I find the time.

Stories of people affected by Centrelinks robodebt campaign are up again according to @not_my_debt, including this gut-churning announcement that went out during the week.


In technology news, Andre Obler from Aussie grassroots organisation, the Online Hate Prevention Institute spoke to Radio Sputnick about the racist hate categories plaguing Google & Facebooks advertising programs, while Theresea May told the United Nations that social media companies should take down terrorism posts within 2 hours.

Pilot accidentally punches in wrong co-ordinates "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

How did a commercial jet bound for Southeast Asia end up landing in Australia? Good old-fashioned human error.

You might remember hearing about Airbus A330, the Malaysia-bound AirAsia flight that touched down at Sydneys international airport instead of arriving at its intended destination, Kuala Lumpur, on March 10, 2015. Now, according to CNN, an aviation investigation report reveals that the planes pilot made a big blunder: He accidentally entered incorrect coordinates for planes starting position into the flights onboard navigation systems.

To be fair, as The Guardian points out, entering the planes coordinates isnt typically part of the pilots job. The report states that his earmuffs were defective, so the captain and the first officer switched their normal pre-flight checks. The pilot, who typically inspects the plane externally, stayed inside the cockpit and performed the first officers duties. Among other tasks, they involved finalizing the planes current coordinateswhich are normally the coordinates of the departure gateinto the planes internal navigation system before takeoff.

The captain looked out the cockpit window, and manually recorded coordinates from a sign into the system. However, he accidentally recorded the longitude wrong, resulting in a positional error in excess of 11,000km, which adversely affected the aircrafts navigation systems and some alerting systems, the Australian Transit Safety Bureau (ATSB) wrote in their report.

Alarms, messages, and warnings popped up, but the planes crew ignored them. In fact, they didnt even notice that things were amiss until the plane took off, and it started tracking in the wrong direction.

The captain and the first officer tried to fix their navigation, to no avail. They wanted to return to Sydney, but since the navigation systems were out of whack, they had to rely solely on visuals. The weather was bad in Sydney, so air traffic control advised them to head to Melbourne.

The plane spent three hours in Melbourne fixing the system, and later arrived in Kuala Lumpur six hours later than intended. To prevent future flight snafus, the ATSB later recommended that AirAsia upgrade its flight systems. The airline followed suit, and also sent staffers additional training materials and briefed them on the investigations findings.

The quarterly price increased across the capital cities slowed to +2.2 per cent in July, down from a pacy +3.6 per cent in February.

Sydney houses (+12.3 per cent) and units (+10.3 per cent) have continued to be strong performers over the year to July 2017.

Kings Cross Stories "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Though there have been a few of these before-hand, focussing on the 50s, 60s and 70s, Ive only only recently discovered Kings Cross Stories.

The event is described thus:

Join iconic and ordinary locals as they bring Kings Cross unique character to life with stories, live music and film. This special series produced by artist and performer, Vashti Hughes, will take us on a journey through the decades. Going back to the 1980s, the Cross is still the place to let your hair down. The thrill of nightlife is now mixed with an increase of people doing it tough. AIDS and drug-related deaths were fast putting out the party. In the background, sounds were changing and so was fashion and feel.

A bit like a talk show a series of guests were interviewed for 10-15 minutes about their lives and connections to Sydneys Kings Cross. In reality, for some the duration wasnt nearly enough, for others it was maybe too long.

The event started with a screening of this classic Australian song

Todays guests included

Haydn Keenan, who spoke about the film he directed, Going Down which told a true-life story about a group of young women living in Kings Cross during the 80s. He was wonderfully candid, about the behind-the-scenes activity that was involved in making the movie.

Julie Bates, who spoke about her life, moving from Melbourne to Sydney, and working as a prostitute, and as an advocate for sex workers and safe sex. She spoke about her role in ensuring condoms were used by sex workers in Sydney. A terrific speaker, with a terrific story.

Lee Young, who spoke about his role as MC at Les Girls, after Carlotta left.

Vittorio Bianchi, who ran the famous Piccolo Bar.

There were lots of wonderful stories, all told with a wonderful sense of humour with a recurrent theme being the prevalence of street prostitution, police corruption, and heroin abuse. It was a little bit before my time, but enjoyable. And definitely heading back for the 90s in about four weeks time.

And fascinating to witness, since Im working with others on a project with similar goals: to tell real life stories of our part of...
