RAWA AUSTRALIAN TOUR "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

RAWAs Amena Shams was in Australia, speaking at many forums across the country. For all those who were fortunate enough to attend one of Amenas many events, it was a great opportunity to reconnect directly with RAWA, to be inspired by news of RAWAs ongoing work and to receive accurate, current information of the situation for Afghan women. For this 2005 tour events were organised in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Lismore and Brisbane by a wide range of organisations including the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, the Boite, the International Womens Development Agency, Immigrant Womens Support Service, Melbourne University, Flinders University, Amnesty International, the Australian Peace Committee, WILPF, Darebin City Council, several private and government schools as well as many RAWA supporter groups and individuals.

Long term arrivals pick up with the economy "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Immigration picking up

Long-term arrivals into Australia slowed along with the economy from 2013.

But now they are rising again.

In fact annual permanent and long-term arrivals combined rose to 776,790 over the year to July.

That's some +7 per cent higher than a year ago, and the highest figure on record.


New permanent settlers in Australia now mostly hail from Asia, and largely head to Sydney and Melbourne.

That said, at this stage in the cycle, many incumbent Sydneysiders will take their equity off to regional New South Wales, or up to south-east Queensland. 

And some are even moving internally from Sydney to Melbourne for cheaper housing.

Eat It - 17 September 2017 "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

It finally feels like Spring! And we started today's Springy show talking to Michelle Barnett who is organising an event as part of the Do It In A Dress charity to raisse money for girls education in Sierra Leone and Uganda. You can find more info and donate at the Chef It In A Dress page.

The Forum is one of the great rooms in Melbourne, and David & Gareth from the Mariner Group joined us to talk about its recent renovation. How the hell do you reliably cook good food for 1000 people? (answer: planning!)

Finally the great Hilary McNevin wandered into the studio to speak about one of life's conundrums: how you can prepare your offspring to omve out of the house. We spoke about kitchen essentials, and the importance of getting kids confident in the kitchen as they grow up.

New Study Reveals Why Employees Over 40 Should Only Work Three Days A Week "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

By Fattima Mahdi Truth Theory

A study has revealed that better employee productivity would occur if people over 40 years old were able to work three days (25 hours) a week. According to the paper which is in the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research, doing more than three days a week once you reach 40 years old can damage your ability to think.

The research was conducted using the data of more than 3,000 men and 3,500 women (aged over 40) who completed the national Household Income Labour Dynamics in Australia survey. The research took peoples economic and subjective well-being, family structures and employment into account. The participants were asked to read words aloud, match letters and numbers under pressure and to recite lists of numbers backwards. The results indicated that participants who worked 25 hours a week tended to achieve the highest scores.

Colin Mckenzie is a Professor of Economics at Keio University. He took part in the research and said that working long hours was more damaging to brain function than not working at all. Given the fact that the retirement age has gone up in many countries, Mckenzie suggests that these new findings should be taken into consideration. He stated that many countries are going to raise their retirement ages by delaying the age at which people are eligible to start receiving pension benefits. This means that more people continue to work in the later stages of their life. He added, the degree of intellectual stimulation...

Is underutilisation falling? "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Slack, but tightening

Yes, gradually, underutilisation in the labour force is declining.  

Down from 14.8 per cent in 2014 to 14.1 per cent. 

Some states are faring better than others. 

Much of the increase since 2012 has related to Western Australia, and to a lesser extent Queensland and South Australia. 

But looking at the trend figures, South Australia has seen a turnaround in fortunes lately - partly because of people moving to Melbourne, and partly due to an improving economy. 

Western Australia and Queensland also seem to have turned a corner, following a prolonged resources construction downturn. 


In New South Wales underutilisation continues to improve to the sort of levels historically associated with decent wages growth.

Meanwhile, stamp and transfer duty take in New South Wales is still going absolutely nuts, helping to fund an infrastructure boom.

Overall, the figures suggest that there is a way to go before the labour force slack is taken up, but some inroads have at least been made. 

And perhaps the start of a gentle lift-off too for Adelaide?

Swedish Day at the Ice Hockey in Melbourne "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

You know the character, Ronald Niedermann in one of the episodes of the Swedish TV production of The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo?. He has a congential condition where he has no feelings of pain, and subsequent attempts to kill him off are completely unsuccessful. In the films, he has a steely gaze which basically says dont F with me. Well, today, Im sure he was at the Swedish Day held at the ice-hockey in Melbourne.

Id arrived late (terrible traffic), and was wanting to take a seat in the middle of row C at the OBrien Arena. To take my seat, a man who looked like the character looked at me with a steely gaze, as I asked him and his entire family to make way for me. Would it help if I said, urskta mig (the Swedish phrase for excuse me), I thought to myself. Probably not, I concluded. It would probably make it even worse, I concluded.

Do you have any idea about why theyre doing the Swedish thing..?, I heard the woman on the other side of me ask her friend. Ive Googled, and Swedish national day was back in June, she said, with curiosity. The answer was simple: theyd done a Canada day (a strong ice-hockey nation) and now they were doing Sweden Day (another strong ice-hockey nation).

Having attended the LGBTQI Day in Sydney last week, I noticed there were more rainbow flags in Sydney then, than there were Swedish flags in Melbourne today. Yeah, there were some obvious Swedes in the audience. But mostly, this seemed to be a Melbourne-Sydney grudge match. There was a fair bit of biffo, as the Melbourne Ice took on the Sydney Dogs, resulting in some actual physical contact. And it was a fairly tight match, with strong defence by Sydney in the first and second parts of the game, until finally Melbourne came to the fore at the end.

Once again, another exciting ice-hockey match. This could be my new thing.

Glad I Used Points "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

The traffic on Cleveland Street, Surry Hills is always pretty bad, especially on weekends, as people make their way to sports grounds or the beach. It was even worse yesterday, as I observed quite innocently with this Twitter post at about 2.15pm.

Screenshot 2017-07-30 at 15.31.47

I knew something was up, and in hindsight, I know I should have called the ABC Newsroom, to alert them. But I didnt think it was anything to worry about. I just thought it was crazy Sydney weekend traffic.

A few hours later, the reason for all of the police, and one lane of Cleveland Street being closed was clear. Along with a number of other homes in Sydney, a house in Surry Hills was being raided, because of an alleged plot to take a bomb onto a plane.

Screenshot 2017-07-30 at 15.30.25

I was at the pub on the corner when the news came through. Though most people were still watching the footy, there were a few of us aware of the news, and I chatted with a couple of people about it. The bloke sitting next to me, though, didnt quite believe the news until I showed him a breaking news report on my mobile phone.

I also found it funny that my family always calls me when something terrible happens in Sydney. Normally, I tell them its miles away and theres nothing to worry about. This time, when it was in my neighbourhood, there wasnt a word from them.

News of an attempt to take a bomb onto a plane (heaven knows how they would make it through security) is always a cause of concern, especially since Im spending a few days this week in Melbourne, and flew down this afternoon.

On a whim, a couple of days ago, I decided to upgrade my economy class flight with some bonus points. What a fortuitous move that was. As I arrived at Sydney...

Melbourne to overtake Sydney within a decade "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

10-years of population increase

Figures released by the ABS today showed that Australia's population increased by 18 per cent or 3.8 million over the decade to 30 June 2016. 

That's a hefty increase, and a rate at which the delivery of infrastructure will struggle to keep pace.

Victoria experienced by some margin the largest growth in terms of absolute numbers at 1.1 million persons, followed by New South Wales (+996,600), and then Queensland (+840,900).

Capitals suck in population

77 per cent of the total population growth was experienced in capital cities over the past decade.

However, the trend towards the capitals is accelerating, with some 84 per cent of population growth in FY2016 taking place in those cities. 

The trend was particularly stark in 2016, driven forward by the most populous capitals of Sydney and especially Melbourne. 


Melbourne to overtake Sydney

The population of Sydney grew by +773,607 to 5,029,768 over the ten year period, for an increase of 18.2 per cent (compared to 9 per cent growth for regional New South Wales)...

Privatisation has damaged the economy says ACCC chief "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Patrick Hutch (The Sydney Morning Herald 27 July 2017) reports that Rod Sims, the head of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), stating that the sale of public assets has harmed the Australian economy. Many voices have been saying the same for years. When someone in Rod Sims position says it, can there remain any room for doubt?

Selling public assets has created unregulated monopolies that hurt productivity and damage the economy, according to Australias consumer and competition tsar, who says he is on the verge of becoming a privatisation opponent.

In a blistering attack on decades of common government practice, Australian Competition and Consumer Commission chairman Rod Sims said the sale of ports and electricity infrastructure and the opening of vocational education to private companies had caused him and the public to lose faith in privatisation and deregulation.

ACCC chairman Rod Sims says privatisation is hurting productivity.  Photo: Vince Caligiuri

Ive been a very strong advocate of privatisation for probably 30 years; I believe it enhances economic efficiency, Mr Sims told the Melbourne Economic Forum on Tuesday.

Im now almost at the point of opposing privatisation because its been done to boost proceeds, its been done to boost asset sales and I think its severely damaging our economy.

Deregulating the electricity market and selling poles and wires in Queensland and NSW, meanwhile, had seen power prices almost double there over five years. Photo: Glenn Hunt

Mr Sims said privatising ports, including Port Botany and Port Kembla in NSW, which were privatised together, and the Port of Melbourne, which came with conditions restricting competition from other ports, were examples where monopolies had been created without suitable regulation to control how much they could then charge users.

Of course you get these lovely headlines in the Financial Review saying Gosh, what a successful sale, look at the multiple they achieved, Mr Sims said.

Well of course they bloody well did: the owners factored in very large price rises because theres no regulation on how they set the price of a monopoly. How dopey is that?

Bottom of Form

Mr Sims, who recently launched legal action against Medibank Private alleging it concealed changes to health insurance policies to boost profits ahead of its privatisation,...

Pell to hear prosecution case against him "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

Cardinal George Pell and his defence team will soon be given the prosecutions brief of evidence in the historical sexual abuse case against him.

The highest-ranking Catholic official to be charged with sexual abuse has appeared in court for the first time, with his barrister making it clear Pell will plead not guilty to all charges.

Wednesdays filing hearing, the first step in the preliminary court process, was over in six-and-a-half minutes.
Magistrate Duncan Reynolds adjourned the case until October 6, when a date may be set for a committal hearing to determine if Pell stands trial.

The prosecution has until September 8 to hand over its brief of evidence to the defence, although prosecutor Andrew Tinney SC said that could occur as soon as next week.

I can indicate that it is my expectation the brief will be delivered well before, possibly late next week, Mr Tinney told the Melbourne Magistrates Court.

Hand-up briefs contain all the evidence in the case, in the form of witness statements and copies of exhibits, as well as the accuseds record of interview.

Pell will not have to enter a formal plea on the multiple historical sexual offence charges involving multiple complainants unless a magistrate decides there is enough evidence for him to stand trial in the County Court.

His barrister Robert Richter QC said the 76-year-old maintains his innocence.

For the avoidance of doubt and because of the interest, might I indicate that Cardinal Pell will plead not guilty to all the charges and will maintain his presumed innocence that he has, Mr Richter told the court.

The appearance in court of the third-most senior Vatican official generated massive interest from Australian and international media organisations.

Australias most senior Catholic was shepherded by police officers through a crush of camera operators, journalists and photographers on his way to and from the court.

The former Sydney and Melbourne archbishop and Ballarat priest has taken leave from his position as Vatican treasurer to return to Australia to defend himself.

The prefect for the Secretariat for the Economy is basing himself in Sydney, where the archdiocese is assisting with his...

Alex Lahey "IndyWatch Feed Sydney"

ALEX LAHEY ANNOUNCES DEBUT ALBUM & ALBUM TOUR

 

One of the most impressive indie rock introductions in recent memory Stereogum

 

Alex Lahey announced herself to the world in 2016 with her debut EP B-Grade University. The EP saw the Melbourne singer songwriter catapulted into popularity with fans and critics alike. Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Rolling Stone, Sterogum all got on board as she scored spots on festival bills from SXSW to Splendour.

Now in 2017, she is ready to release her debut full length album, I Love You Like A Brother, and with it, the first single, Every Days The Weekend.

 

Watch the video for Every Days The Weekend, here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tBj_magluuc

 

Lahey sees her life as ordinary: I fall in love, I have a family, I go out with my friends, I like to have a drink. However, most people cant distil those universal experiences into wry, punchy indie-rock songs three-minute odes to millennial angst and all the complicated feelings that come with it. Alex Lahey can. Love You Like A Brother is proof.

 

The video for Every Days The Weekend, created by Alexs long-time collaborator, Jam Nawaz, (Remi, Bec Sandridge) and renowned local artist Callum Preston, features cameos from celebrated Australian comedian Barry Morgan, as well as Alexs mum.

 

To celebrate the release of I Love You Like A Brother, Alex and her band will hit the road in October for a run of shows across the country. After selling out her last in May and wowing fans across the country, this tour should be no different!

Eat It - 25 June 2017 "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

As we make our way through the depths of a chilly Melbourne winter we chatted about how to make the perfect roast potato; our top tips are to choose the correct spud (look for a sebago or dutch cream, ideally just brushed so you still have to clean them) and add half a teaspoon of bi-carb soda when you're par-boiling them. Yum!

Truffle Melbourne's Nigel Woods joined us in the studio to talk about Australia's burgeoning industry, which is now the fourth largest truffle producing country in the world. We chatted about the differences growing truffles in Australia vs Europe, why to avoid truffle oil, and where to buy the elusive fungus here in Melbourne.

Gabriel Gate has been synonymous with French cuisine in Australia for as long as any of us can remember, and we spoke to him about his most recent book So French So Sweet. If you're the sort of person that never cooks desserts, Gabriel recommends you aim to learn a new dish every few months to slowly expand your repertoire.
