War Commemoration Porn: Remembrance Day Celebrations "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

The officials are called one by one to lay wreathes, a ceremony of mechanical efficiency.  With each laying comes the sense of wonder at how this could happen.  Political figures are the first to vote in parliaments and side with the executive when it comes to wars.  The temptations of human drives to tempt, and then succumb to death, were there long before Sigmund Freud identified them.

In the Australian capital, there were many wreaths, so many uniformed, deodorised dignitaries distant from the cries of battle and the horror of engineered slaughter.  There were the expected, the usual, the normal: the most medalled of them all, the Governor General, the various Chiefs of Army, Navy and Air Force.

There was the Chief Justice of the Australian High Court making her appearance.  There was even the ceremonial didgeridoo player.  Various associations also featured: those dealing with the incapacitated; the matter of war widows, the issue of legacies.  It seemed like a vast whos who of the military complex, which is exactly what it was.

The Australian response here is, in some ways, more tragic than most.  Retained, generally white Ghurkhas for imperial causes (there were those of other races in the Australian armed forces at points), they flitted between theatres to be slaughtered at the behest of not-so-grand strategies that mangled the word freedom and confused it for politics. In battle, such a word has little meaning, about as significant, in fact, as a wreath.  What matters is survival.

Across media networks, the word freedom was uttered as an automatic response, a genetically programmed insistence that the deaths of the Great War had been somehow necessary and, importantly, productive.

That disposition was sown by such figures as King George V, who had issued a request to the people of the British Empire to suspend ordinary activities for two minutes on the hour of the armistice which stayed the worldwide carnage of the four preceding years and marked the victory of Right and Freedom.

In 1997, the Australian Governor-General, Sir William Deane, proclaimed that November 11 be deemed Remembrance Day, insisting that a minutes silence be observed at 11 am on November 11 each year, a pause to reflect, more broadly, sacrifices made by the Australian armed forces.

Modern representatives of this view abound, and they are, unsurprisingly, effusive in the veterans organisations.  There were the remarks, for instance, of Richard Embleton from the Geelong Returned and Services League, who reflected on the tens of thousands of wool poppies laid out before Melbournes Shrine of Remembrance.  You only have to look around Australia [to see] how free we are and how important it is.

Eat It - 12 November 2017 "GroovUs Feed Aradio"

On a cracking Melbourne afternoon we spoke to Mitchell Horrocks about his time and work in Uganda. He first travelled to Africa in high school, and since then learned about their disease problems due to unclean drinking water. But every problem is a solution waiting to happen, so Mitchell has designed an apparatus that can sit on an existing cooking setup and purify water at the same time. Have a look at his crowd-sourcing page here.

Heston Blumenthal is one of the most influential chefs of our time, and his "right hand man" - and Dinner by Heston Executive Chef - Ashley Palmer-Watts joined us in the studio to talk about running restaurants in different continents. We spoke about his Fat Duck journey, the logistics of setting up Dinner in Melbourne, and the awesome gin they created based on a trip from Perth to Margaret River.

Couples Wanted Newlands Community News

Hi Newlanders,


W are looking for couples who are pregnant, have recently become parents or who are planning to start a family to be a part of our pilot workshop!

We are two mummas who are passionate about supporting couples to face the changes and challenges of new parenthood with less stress, and more ease and confidence.
 
We found that most antenatal education was focused solely on the birth, not inclusive of partners and did not take into account the emotional and relationship changes that can cause enormous stress. 

We want to change that. 

This is the stuff they don't teach you in antenatal classes!

Melbourne, Austrlia: Relatos sobre o Dia de Ao para xs Refugiadxs na Ilha de Manus "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

08.11.17: RISE: Refugee Survivors and ex-Detainees pediram um Dia de Ao, em 07 de novembro, em solidariedade com xs mais de 600 refugiadxs que atualmente so presxs dentro do antigo centro de deteno do governo australiano na Ilha Manus, em Papu Nova Guin. O governo australiano prendeu xs homens em Manus como parte de sua desprezvel poltica de deteno obrigatria para todos xs refugiadxs que tentaram entrar nos territrios australianos por barco.

O centro de deteno foi oficialmente fechado pelo governo australiano e todos os servios essenciais foram cortados, incluindo gua e eletricidade. A polcia e os militares de Papu Nova Guin tm impedido que alimentos e outros itens essenciais entrem no centro de deteno. O governo australiano est se recusando a assumir qualquer
responsabilidade ou obrigao de cuidar dxs refugiadxs e bloqueou ativamente outros pases de aceit-lxs, insistindo que xs homens devem se deslocar para um novo centro que foi construdo em Manus. Este centro no seguro nem est equipado para atender s necessidades dxs refugiadxs que tm medo de serem atacadxs por pessoas que no querem xs refugiadxs em suas comunidades. Como resultado desta situao, xs 600 homens se recusam a deixar o centro de deteno australiano e pediram comunidade internacional para intervir e ajud-los.

Westall, the Department of Supply and Mr 'X' "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Background

In a Facebook post dated 10 November 2017, and titled 'The troubled Public Servant,' Westall researcher Shane Ryan, reported that in 2010 he was contacted by a woman with some inside knowledge about the 1966 Westall, Melbourne incident, gained from her father.

In the post, Shane gave details of the contents of a number of emails from the woman (one from 2010, one from 2012) and her brother (one from 2012). The 2012 emails concerned the HIBAL hypothesis, but the important email is the 2010 one from the daughter, of the person I am choosing to refer to as Mr 'X.'

I have decided to annotate her words, rather than addressing points raised at the end of her text.

The email

'I am writing to you because I hadn't realised there were so many other witnesses to an event that my father was involved with in 1966. My father was the Assistant Controller of Aircraft, Weapons and Guided Missiles with the Department of Supply in Melbourne.

1. Shane found a Department of Supply Bulletin, in the National Library of Australia which confirmed that Mr X was indeed the Assistant Controller of the Aircraft, Guided Weapons and Electronics Supply Division of the Department of Supply in August 1967. We have not been able to confirm his position on 6 April 1966, the date of the Westall incident.

' He was a brilliant intellectual, Dux of High School, First class honours in Engineering and a science degree in Electronics all in 3 years. I mention this because he was not a fool, or someone who would dream up what he saw.

2. A check of the National Archives of Australia revealed Mr X's war records, which indicate he was an Engineer.

'I do not know how he was involved in the sighting of the object. He was, however told (by someone senior to him) that if he were to speak of this incident to anyone, he would lose his job.

3. A search of the Internet reveals that the immediate senior of the Assistant Controller of the Aircraft, Guided Weapons and Electronics Supply Division of the Department of Supply was in fact the Controller, of the Aircraft, Guided Weapons and Electronics Supply Division of the Department of Supply. On 6 April 1966, this was one Ian Bowman Fleming. He held the position between 1958-1967. Fleming was the director of the project which produced Australia's first unmanned target aircraft, Jindivik. Unfortunately, we are unable to seek any knowledge about Westall from Fleming as he passed away in 1993.

'He used to say that knew what he saw, he was very angry that this event was not seen as an opportunity. He was intimidated on a regular b...

Ned Kelly: The Rebel and Nolans Muse "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Ned Kelly one day before the execution. Photo Credit: Wikipedia

On the 11th of November 1880, Ned Kelly, an Australian bushranger, was hanged in Melbourne. At the time of his death he was only 25 and already a legend. By some perceived as a criminal and villain, by others as a rebel or even an Australian equivalent of Robin Hood, Kelly was anstill is one of the most controversial figures in the history of Australia.

He was sentenced to death for the murder of three policemen, numerous bank robberies and the murder of his estranged gang member, Aaron Sherritt. The list of his crimes was much longer, but he denied some of them and claimed to be the victim of false accusations. Always on a run with his fellow gang members, Kelly was  captured eventually after the Glenrowan shootout on the 27th of June 1880. Prior to this event, the Kelly gang had equipped themselves in characteristic iron armour that repelled bullets; yet, it did not protect their legs. This turned out to be fatal in consequences, as Kelly was shot in the left foot, left leg, right hand, left arm and twice in the region of the groin (The Argus, 29 June 1880). His fellow gang members did not survive the shootout.

Ah, well, I suppose it has come to this (The Argus, 12 November 1880), were Kellys last words, with the rope already around his neck. But the words Kelly is best remembered for are included in his famous Jerilderie Letter, written to the police to clarify and justify various incidents leading him to becoming an outlaw. The letter made of him an illiterate (he dictated the letter to his friend) literary phenomenon. The language in the letter has got an unavoidable roughness to it, yet it is colourful and full of metaphors, testifying Kellys eloquence and intelligence.

Energy Efficiency: the foundation of the climate transition "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Energy efficiency: the foundation of the climate transition, REneweconomy, By Andrew McCallister on 10 November 2017  Im preparing for a trip to your fine nation later this month to speak at the National Energy Efficiency Conference in Melbourne, so Ive been reading up on Australian energy policy debate. Its been fascinating.

I still have a lot to learn about your energy system, but so far one thing stands out: the discussion in Australia seems overly focused on the transition underway on the supply side of the market.

Dont get me wrong the decarbonisation of the worlds energy supply is crucial, and you wont find a stronger advocate for renewables than me. Way back in the 1990s, I installed many small, remote PV and wind systems with my own two hands, and trained others to do the same.

More recently I ran two of Californias signature renewables programs the California Solar Initiative and Self-Generation Incentive Program.

However, focusing solely on the move to low carbon generation without pursuing demand side opportunities in an ambitious, systematic way actually makes the transition harder.

Energy efficiency and demand response are just as important to the energy tr...

A high HELP repayment threshold increases pressure to restrict or deny access to HELP Andrew Norton

The Department of Education and Trainings 2016-17 annual report announced the first public use of a project to link up the ATOs HELP repayment data with the Departments enrolment data:

In 201617 the department worked with both the Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Government Actuary to create a database that links education courses with
income and occupation information. In 2018, the QILT website will publish graduate income data sourced from this database, which will inform students of the earning potential in their study area.

This will, of course, be very interesting, and could include income by university attended, as well as by study area. This has been done in the UK, although their QILT equivalent does not use it at this point.

But this data linking work is being done to better understand HELP debt and which factors affect repayment. It has potential uses well beyond student advice, uses that would fit a pattern of the government trying to reduce its risk of bad HELP debt.

The most obvious of these is to restrict access to courses with high rates of non-repayment. This was a feature of the VET Student Loans reform so that

loans are only being provided for courses that are closely aligned to the skills employers need in their workplace, thereby enhancing the opportunities for graduates to work, and to repay the money lent to them by taxpayers. [emphasis added]

VET is, of course, different to higher education. It is supposed to have strong vocational links, while higher education can be about knowledge for its own sake. But the government has already tried to cross this line with its now-blocked reform to higher education sub-bachelor courses, so there is no guarantee that it wont try again with some data to highlight the problem. There are some higher education disciplines, especially the humanities and creative arts, that on other data sources look like they will have high bad debt.

With more than 20 years of data on some individuals, the ATO analysis should give us a better idea of how much HELP debt is manageable within a working life....

Australians you are all racists Maley @ Fairfax says so "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

It is a lovely sunny day in Sydney.  The temperature is a benign low 20 something.  People are out at lunch.  Happy and smiling.  But underneath it all, there is a dark undercurrent of racism, misogyny and homophobia.  Not to mention any other pejorative -ism and -phobia.

Apparently though, we all hate everyone else, and if not for government, the law and the moral left, we would all be killing, vilifying and stealing from everyone else.  At least Jacqueline Maley from Fairfax media would have you believe.

In her latest Sydney Moralising Herald contribution to the public discourse, Ms Maley writes:

Wake up Australia: the Sam Dastyari incident proves youre racist

There you go.  Ms Maley is of the view that the actions of a couple boof heads in Melbourne translate to the guilt of every man, woman and child in Australia.  And herself also presumably.  Vicarious guilt that would be.  The guilt of one is the guilt of all.

One must wonder if Ms Maleys writings qualify as Maley Bull S**t?

Not only does the High Priestess Maley declare all Australias are racists, she also incriminates the staff at the bar where Senator Dastyari was accosted:

And on Dastyaris face, the uneasy calculations of the victim: Can I laugh this off? Can I ignore them? Will anyone step in to help?

The bar staff didnt, but Dastyaris fellow Labor MP Tim Watts was nearby, ducking in and out of the shakily-filmed video.

The bar staff didnt help she declares!  High Priestess evidence?  The bits of the video where there were no bar staff recorded.  Was Maley there?  Did Maley speak to witnesses?  That requires work.  Moral patronising, especially at Fairfax, is apparently easier and better remunerated.

But also to call Senator Dastyari a victim.   Yeah right.  Maybe he can make an inappropriate video bagging his harasssors and get his daughters to do the speaking for him.  But Priestess Maley goes on:

In any other country, if a dark-skinned man is called a monkey, the person labelling him that doesnt get a platform on which to further publicise his moronic views.

Really?  Has she watched any Palestinian television when that and worse is hurled against Jews and Israelis?  Perhaps not.  That would be contra to the narrative that only white ang...

Refugees to take your homes in Victoria the new Communist state? "IndyWatch Feed Vic"



Many a layperson may have an opinion about the law where they put it out on social media where others mistake it as actual facts.

Unfortunately to the novices this can lead them up the garden path, so to speak.

So, let's get a couple of 'facts' out the way with regards to the shenanigans of people in power in Victoria.

Very Briefly;

1). The lawmakers in Victoria can make whatever laws they so desire,
- even for example some far fetched idea as a law to kill babies born with blue eyes.

2). This is done 'legally' via Section 16 of the Victorian Constitution (or the Constitution Act 1975).

3). The 'Victorian Constitution' is an unlawfully enacted law.

4). No one in Australia is a "land owner", where you actually purchase the right to use the land however you see fit, to a degree.

 Problem Reaction Solution


The people in government create a 'problem' where they already have the solution where they put the 'problem' out into the community so that the solution can be implemented.

The 'problem'

The people in government created a 'problem' called housing shortage.

During something called natural growth a country's people do not experience a 'housing shortage'.

The people in the Victorian government import approximately 1500 slaves refugees per week into Melbourne.

This creates a real problem for the infrastructure as it is not built for the sudden (herd population) increase.

The government created problems burden the people with high traffic, no jobs for 'Australians' and the topic at hand - housing.

So the people with very low qualifications in government have thought of the bright idea to tax their slave / serf population for having vacant houses.

Once again under whatever 'Bill' or amendment to whatever current Act they decide to stuff it under, you can bet your (Victorian) 'Constitution' that the law is unlawful.

Will this give the policy enforcers the right to break into your home to see if you live there?

Under communist rule, if....

Sick Passenger Medevaced from Grandeur of the Seas "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

Medevac CruiseAccording to Florida Today, aircrews from Patrick Air Force Base medevaced an ill passenger from the Royal Caribbean Grandeur of the Seas yesterday.

The Grandeur was en route to to Baltimore, Maryland when the air force base was requested to assist in evacuating a passenger reportedly suffering from appendicitis on the Royal Caribbean cruise ship. The cruise ship was approximately 690 miles off of Cape Canaveral, according to the article. (Although the video information suggests that the ship was about 500 miles from Brevard County). 

The long-range rescue "involved HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopters and 2 HC-130 aerial refueling aircraft" to reach the cruise ship vessel, according to representatives of the 920th Rescue group.

The U.S. Coast Guard was not involved in the operation, according to Coast Guard officials.

According to the article, the passenger was accompanied by his spouse aboard the rescue helicopter, and flown to Holmes Regional Medical Center, in Melbourne Florida, where he reportedly is recovering,

Little Girl Gets Best Surprise Ever After Her Puppy Was Stolen "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

You cant put a price tag on love.

At least, that is what one sorry thief realized after absconding with a Melbourne, Australia, familys 8-week-old puppy, Sasha.

The adorable yellow Labrador was snatched from the Hood familys home in Croydon Hills Monday morning, along with a number of items including a laptop, iPads, passports and jewelry.

But the family knew that no matter how important some of the stolen items seemed to be, Sasha was irreplaceable.

No one felt the loss quite as keenly as the puppys littlest owner, 4-year-old Maia, who was left heartbroken.

Before the robbery, Maia and Sasha had formed an unbreakable bond, spending every second together. The two were so close that Maia would forgo her own comfy bed to sleep in the dog bed with Sasha every night.
 
In an effort to appeal to the better nature of the person or persons who took the defenseless puppy, the Victoria police commissioner, Graham Ashton, and Maias father, Ryan Hood, directly addressed the thieves in a Facebook video.

What Race Is Islam? Racist Asks. What Race Is Dickhead? Australian Lawmaker Replies. "IndyWatch Feed Politics.au"

Australian white supremacists surrounded and harassed an Iranian-born lawmaker at a pub in Melbourne on Wednesday, calling him a monkey and a terrorist, as they filmed the encounter for their Facebook page.

Footage of the incident recorded by members of the white supremacist group Patriot Blue showed that the lawmaker, Senator Sam Dastyari, refused to take the bait. Honestly, I think you guys are a bunch of racists, Dastyari told them, I dont have time for you.

With what the Australian politics observer Sean Kelly called the self-satisfaction of a 5-year-old whos just learned the phrase I know you are, but what am I?' one of the men then asked the senator again and again, What race is Islam?

After the men followed Dastyari back to his table and continued to ask him, What race is Islam? the senators friend and fellow legislator, Tim Watts, leaned into the phone of one white supremacist and replied, What race is dickhead?

Wattss rejoinder was removed from Facebook along with the rest of the white supremacistss video, but it was preserved online and by several media outlets.

The member of parliament from Melbourne was widely praised for the comeback on social networks.
