New website & next meeting "IndyWatch Feed"

I've created a new website for the Melbourne Traditionalists (see here). It's purpose is not to have regularly updated content, but to be an information site for new people who might be interested in getting involved.

The next gathering is happening early next month, so if any readers are interested I encourage them to visit the site and to get in touch.

There is also information at the site about a new initiative Mark Moncrieff of the Upon Hope blog and I are trying out. There are numbers of people in Melbourne who are sympathetic to the dissident right but perhaps not supportive of all aspects of a traditionalist politics. We're organising a Melbourne Right Forum, which will meet in the similar way to the Melbourne Traditionalists, but be broader politically.

Domestic Violence and the Turnbull Government's Cashless Welfare Card "IndyWatch Feed"

The Guardian, 11 January 2018:

Domestic violence has increased significantly in the East Kimberley since the introduction of the cashless welfare card, casting doubt on the governments claims of its success.

Police data obtained under freedom of information law shows domestic-related assaults and police-attended domestic violence reports increased in the Kimberley communities of Wyndham and Kununurra since trials began in April 2016.

Melbourne University researcher Elise Klein, who has studied the cards impact in the Kimberley, said the data showed there was no clear evidence to support making the card permanent.

Klein lodged the freedom of information request for the police data. She said the information had taken too long to be made public.

She believes there is a link between the card, financial hardship, and family violence..

Melbourne Water about to de-tree Koala corridor in Frankston "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Melbourne Water is about to de-tree Frankston koala corridor by removing mature trees from banks of a huge park with a water retarding basin in it at Lee Street Frankston 3199. They are claiming that the trees are 'destabilising' the banks. But of course the trees are holding the banks together and keeping the water-table down. Who is accountable for these kinds of decisions that are based on what sound like lies that make no sense? Frankston Council is apparently going along with this. It seems totally insane and anti-life and nature. Inside is a video alerting us to the details.

This is a link to a facebook video:

The person speaking in the video is Michele Thomas, of Animalia, who is a well-respected wildlife carer, who knows what she is talking about regarding koalas. See "Animalia's Michelle Thomas gives koala mouth to mouth in night rescue".

Mad tree removal excuses

This tree removal with barmy excuses seems to be a new trend. Recently they machine-ripped out trees all along the sides and median strips of a shady Mornington Peninsula highway, one of few relatively pleasant highways to travel on, due to the shade and green. See The reasons given were that cars might run into them and that they were for eliminating all risks. (Not risks of depression leading to suicide in those who were revolted and felt powerless, of course.) AWPC managed to stop them from ripping them out quite so fast, but the kept on with a different machine at a different pace and they paid for a few possum boxes (not enough for all the possums and other wildlife that were and continue to be displaced.)

The overpopulation link

We know that trees are being ripped out for more houses and more roads to squeeze in the invited economic immigrants that make up over 60% of population growth in Australia. This is obvious with the road widening in Hoddle Street and in the destruction of Melbourne...

Vale Gilla McGuinness "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

It is with great sadness that we at 3CR acknowledge the passing of Gilla McGuinness on Tuesday 9th Jan 2018. Gilla was a well loved and respected 3CR broadcaster and will be greatly missed at the station by programmers, volunteers and staff. We offer our heart-felt condolences to Johnny Mac and family.

Gilla made an enormous contribution to broadcasting at the station. In the Aboriginal community of Melbourne if you have something to say Gilla would help you say it by giving you a voice on radio. He has always tackled the issues and struggles of his community head on and yet maintained integrity and respect while doing so. He was the longest serving Aboriginal broadcaster on 3CR and at 41 years on air perhaps even in Australia. Gilla presented Precious Memories community and country music program on Wednesdays, but before that he was a long-term presenter on the Koori Survival Show. 

Gilla was a founding producer and programmer on the Beyond the Bars prison project and conceived, developed and produced the Yarra Elders Precious Memories project, recording and broadcasting elders stories and history, struggles, survival, celebrations, achievements and concerns. Gilla produced and programmed countless important community events, including broadcasts from the Tent Embassy in Canberra, the Commonwealth Games protests, the National Apology in Canberra, Survival Day concerts, Land Rights protests, Sorry Day ceremonies and rallies, NAIDOC week broadcasts from Aboriginal community organisations including the Aboriginal Health Service, the MAYSAR Aboriginal gym.  

The 3CR community mourns Gillas loss, he was definitely one of a kind, and the station will not be the same without his fighting spirit. We love you Gilla! 3CR will be collecting funds to support Gillas family through this time. You can contribute by making a donation at the station for details emai...

North Coast gay couple wed on first legal day "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

A North Coast gay couple are among the first in Australia to tie the knot on the first official day of marriage equality in Australia, celebrating the result of a hard-fought campaign.

Athletes Craig Burns and Luke Sullivan got married at Tweed Heads overnight, timing their proceedings so the marriage would become official minutes after midnight.

The pair first met three years ago and said they fell in love straight away before Craig popped the question at Byron Bay in March.

Its a very surreal feeling, Craig told AAP in the lead-up to the event.

Same-sex marriage legislation cleared parliament on December 7, nearly a month after it was revealed 61.6 per cent of participants in a voluntary postal survey backed the change.

Amid scenes of jubilation same-sex couples across Australia were quick to lodge formal intentions to wed and while some were granted exemptions to the four-week waiting period, today is the first official day ceremonies can take place.

In Newcastle, 32-year-old Rebecca Hickson will marry her partner of nine years Sarah Turnbull, 34.

The pair said they wanted to be part of history and planned to also be one of the first couples to tie the knot in a ceremony from 8am.

Weve already had our big hoo-ha ceremony three years ago but now we get to declare our love for each other again and have it recognised as a real union, Rebecca told AAP.

She described the build-up to the postal vote deadline as a horrible time but said the two are now excited to move beyond it.

Melbourne couple Ron Van Houwelingen, 50, and Antony McManus, 53, echoed Ms Hicksons feelings about the postal vote and said no country should have to endure the same horrendous process to legalise gay marriage.

On Tuesday, the long-time activists will also look forward and tie the knot where they first met as performing arts students three decades ago at the former Prahran College of TAFEs David Williamson Theatre.

Im looking really forward to celebrating the victory, Ro...


January 9 On This Day in Australian History "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

1815 - First fleeter Augustus Alt, who was responsible for laying out the first streets of the towns of Sydney and Parramatta, turned up his toes at age 83.

1816 - Whaling captain and explorer James Kelly popped into Port Dalrymple whilst puttering around the coastline of Tassie...and was promptly arrested under suspicion of being a bushranger.
Yep, that's how we do things in Oz...see a bloke and reckon he'd like to be flogged while in chains.

1821 - Governor Macquarie issued further grants at Illawarra: Samuel Terry 2000 acres, Andrew Allan 700 acres, Thomas Davey 2000 acres, D'Arcy Wentworth 3150 acres, James Mitcham 700 acres, John Horsley 1200 acres, William Wentworth 1000 acres.

1826 - The ayes have it...The first Executive Council for Van Diemen's Land aka Tasmania was appointed.

1830 - The Sydney Gazette announced....
'The female prisoners by the Lucy Davidson' have turned out but a profitless shipment. Most of the Magdalens, were assigned to service in Sydney and by far the greater portion of those, we are told, have been returned by their masters to government as incorrigibly bad characters'

1854 - It's your money Ralph....The first branch of the English, Scottish and Australian Chartered Bank was opened in Melbourne by F.A.Walsh....and keep those pennies in the tea tin for now.

1862 - William Voss was hanged at Perth Gaol for the murder of his wife Mary Moir at York.

1863 - First Post Office opened in Mackay.

1867 - The Clarke Gang of bushrangers constantly raided crops and livestock. Their gang, the Jerrabat Gully Rakers, were regarded as scientists in the art of cattle duffing and horse stealing. The Clarke gang of relatives and friends was well trained in bushcraft and were heavily armed.
They plundered publicans, storekeepers, farmers and travelers. They ambushed gold shipments from Nerrigundah and Araluen and the coaches that traveled from Sydney and the Illawarra. Till November 1866 they marauded virtually unchecked in a triangle through the Jingeras from Braidwood to Bega, and up the coast to Moruya and Nelligen. A party of special constables assigned to capture the Clarke GangJohn Carroll, Patrick Kennagh, Eneas McDonnell and John Pheganwere ambushed and killed near Jinden Station. They had been tied to a tree and then shot.

1868 - The last convict ship, the Hougoumont, arrived at Fremantle with 279 convicts. Their arrival brought an end to the transportation of prisoners from the UK.Somehow I don't think they got mints on their pillows during their voyage...

1869 - The fast clipper ship, 'Thermopylae', reached Melbourne after a record 60 days sailing from London.
Show off !

This Swallowable Gas Sensor Could Improve Your Diet "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

A new ingestable capsule may also make it easier for doctors to diagnose gut disorders Photo: RMIT University

Is your diet working? A new ingestible gas sensor may be able to tell.

An Australian team has developed the first gas-diagnosing intestinal pill ever to be tested in people. As the researchers report today in the journal Nature Electronics, this smart capsule reliably measured levels of oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide as it journeyed through the innards of six healthy volunteers, revealing the impact of dietary fiber intake on microbial activity in the small intestines and colon.

Not only might this electronic pill one day shape custom diets for optimal gut health; it could also help doctors distinguish between the early signs of different GI disorders, such as malabsorption syndrome, Crohns disease, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and even colon cancer.

At the moment, we have no tool to differentiate between these different things, says Kourosh Kalantar-zadeh, an electronic engineer at RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, who led the research. A colonoscopy can only reveal inflammatory lesions or cancerous polyps that are visible with a cameraand by that point, people have often suffered with gut discomfort and without a diagnosis for years.

Thats too late, says Kalantar-zadeh, who envisions people popping a swallowable sensor once or twice a year to detect disease early on. If gas profiles around the norm change, he explains, then wed know we have a problem with the gut.

On its surface, the gas capsule looks like an over-the-counter supplement youd buy at any GNC or Vitamin Shoppe. But within its inch-long polyethylene shell are two gas sensors, a temperature sensor, a microcontroller, a radio-frequency transmitter, and button-sized silver-oxide batteries. The gas sensors are sealed within a special membrane that allows gas in but keeps out stomach acid and digestive juices.

Kalantar-zadehs ingestible capsule would be the first to provide information about the chemical composition of the gut.
