I've lived in 3 capital cities, 6 major regional cities and a few country towns all over Australia, but the quality of driving in this town is just some next level shit. It's like being passed by another driver is to be avoided at all costs. Merging? Hah! Fuck that shit, "me first cunt!", at the cost of keeping the flow of traffic going. It's even so bad that cunts will just straight up sit at the end of a merging lane if they "missed their chance" instead of being comfortable speeding up to the traffic speed and having someone let them in. And indicators? Nah cunt, too good for that faggy shit. The extreme levels of testosterone have also rubbed off onto the Sheila's also. God Townsville, you cunts are just the fucking worst drivers.
According to Nature, researchers at the University of Brisbane may have developed a simple test thats able to detect the early stages of cancer.
Not only that but the method is inexpensive, takes a mere 10 minutes, and works for all types of cancer and the central component used for identifying cancer cells is gold particles.
The widespread drying of soils, due to higher evaporation rates due to global warming, is shrinking water supplies to the point that drought-like conditions may become the norm in many parts of Australia.

It's not really workHaving blown his precious first Hundred Days to define himself and his government, Scott Morrison has finally found an issue to make his own.
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try ...

Undiminished by her disability, Babe, a rescued bobby calf inspires us daily that sight is but a state of mind, and that a vision for a kinder world rests within us all. The very first photo we saw of sweet Babe told of the fondness she had found at the hands and heart of a kindly worker who had ever so gently painted a red heart on the calfs side. Determined to find a happy outcome for Babe, several phones calls lead to Edgars Mission where happily ever after and a life unhindered by prejudice awaited Babe. Watching the sweet Babe and her belled buddy, Sophie we have pause to thought that the greatest disability held is perhaps by those humans who see animals not for who they are, rather only for what they can produce.
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.

Birmingham UK is alive with Muslims. This is indicative of the downfall of the UK. Islam now controls much of the country. Will we allow Bill Shorten to do this to our country?
If he gets control he already promised to open up the borders. Will you vote for the ALP/Greens?

Flash floods have caused havoc for some in Melbourne on Saturday afternoon, with flash flooding turning backyards, suburban streets and ponds into gushing rivers. A Christmas party at a Pakenham housing estate in the city's outer southeast was called off Saturday afternoon when heavy rainfall halted celebrations. Organiser Samantha Thorpe said a little pond nearby became "like a raging river". "It has never happened like this before."
My metal health is something I've been putting off for a long time, I've recently come to terms with it. And I was thinking of going to headspace to sort out my feelings (maybe even get a diagnosis). But all the reviews have said that staff are rude and basically told them to toughen up? Has anyone recived such treatment? Would I be wasting my time, should I try someplace else? Thank you in advance.
The Powering Past Coal Alliance announced on Friday that Sydney and Melbourne had joined the Alliance at an event: Accelerating the global coal transition. This follows the Australian Capital Territory joining in September 2018. Other states and businesses that joined at COP24 included Israel, Scotland, Senegal, and Scottish Power. The Alliance, formed in Bonn in 2017 at COP23, now includes 80
Interesting to note that on Friday

My slow posting reflects my personal preoccupations. The problem
is that while I have been preoccupied, issues have arisen,
decisions are being made, that will adversely affect New England.
In each case the adverse affects come from the simple fact that
people don't recognise our existence. To illustrate this, I thought
that I would simply list a few examples without great detail.
A few things to remember in considering the examples I will be citing:
I was wondering if anyone would be interest in a games torment. This would be including. Tekken 7 and dbz fighter on the ps4, smash ultimate and a card tournament either magic the gathering or yu-gi-oh. So far this is just an event that I'm planning. Just wondering if people would participate.
I think my friend was a bit taken aback really, when she asked me what I did to just to zone out and relax. I thought for a second, then remembered my guilty pleasure: I watch old sports videos on youtube.
It is a bit odd, I know. And maybe even more unusual because I only vaguely follow the contemporary sports world, yet some nights I can for several hours watch videos of games, many of which I watched the first time around back in the 90s. But thinking about it more, I realised there are ways my worldview was affected by my boyhood love of (some would say obsession with) sports. With that in mind, I thought I would share a few of my favourite sporting memories, united by the fact they were from world cups in the late 90s (my peak sports-loving period).
The first goes back to when I was very young. I was nine years old when Sri Lanka came to Australia in 1995/96 for their first full tour of the country. Sri Lanka was young too as a nation it had been independent from its British colonial masters for less than half a century (it had been known as Sri Lanka for half that time again) but was still trying to work out its national identity and was in the middle of a bitter civil war. As a cricketing country it had played its first test in 1982 and in the time since then had won only a handful of games. Apparently the team were so poorly paid several of them couldnt afford rent in Colombo and lived at the family home of captain Arjuna Ranatunga.
They werent expected to beat the cricketing superstars of Australia and to be honest in the test series they didnt losing all three games resoundingly. The series really heated up though when the Sri Lankans were accused of ball-tampering; and when a couple of Australian umpires no-balled Sri Lankas promising young off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan for throwing. Muralis controversial action had been cleared by world crickets governing body, and the Sri Lankans saw this as an act of Australian arrogance to overrule it.
They seemed to take this as a rallying point when it came to the triangular one-day series with Australia and fellow cricketing giants (albeit in decline) West Indies. There the Sri Lankans played cricket with a new self-belief; but also a startling tactical innovation that surprised their opponents.
Opening batsmen in cricket were traditionally of a slow and steady inclination, making sure to wear the shine off the new ball before starting any attack. Sri Lanka though saw an opportunity through rules that restricted fielding positions in the opening overs. They replaced their normal opening batsmen with middle-order batsman Sanath Jayasuriya and wicket-keeper Romesh Kaluwitharana.
Kaluwitharana was improbably tiny when he hunched over for his batting stance you could almost see the top of the wickets behind him. His bat seemed to be a...
Shes a feisty one, we cooed as we gently plucked the bemused little Muscovy duck from the back of the rangers vehicle. Despite her vocal and wing-flapping protests, we loved her the instant our eyes meet. Found doing unwelcome laps on a householders pool, Feisty had flown in from who knows where. Highlighting how poorly protected our feathered friends are, there exist no statutory requirements for holding lost, stray or abandoned birds. Fortunately, in this instance we were able to offer sanctuary to this sweet, albeit forthright duckher fate is now good, but sadly this does not address the problem so many of her kind face. Feisty did not fall from the sky, she is not the result of native waterbirds breeding; rather, her existence is the result of human intervention. And so to tackle the dire circumstance so often faced by unwanted, lost or abandoned birds, we need to go back to the root, or in this case the nest of the problem, and remind one and all that we are forever responsible for who we have tameda feisty problem indeed.
At least one bird seen and heard 9th and 10th December. Sighting coincided with mass flowering of Moreton Bay ash in area. This is a northern distribution record. First bird/s recorded at this site.
The head of the religious freedom review, Philip Ruddock, has said the review panel found very little hard evidence of religious discrimination in Australia. Prime Minister Scott Morrison released the reviews long-awaited report and the governments response on Thursday. Ruddock told ABC Radio on Friday that the review panel had heard from a wide range ...

Almost run down by a fast-paced BMW, the terrified kid goat dodged yet another bullet, or more to the blunt point, a fancy car. The previous day it had been chaotic traffic on an overpass that nearly claimed her life and the day before it could well have been a train. Whilst her past remains uncertain it was clear her future would have been both bleak and sealed had she not been seen for the vulnerable little being in urgent need of a kindly hand that she was. With the universe guiding her to the safety of a secure backyard, all kind-hearted council rangers could do was watch and thank their (and her) lucky stars they were at the right place at the right time. Not long thereafter the Lady in the Hat stood peering into the back of the Edgars Mission Kindness van cooing the words I see you, youre safe now, and for the first time in a long time ICU was.
The message of this story is simple: if only people could take the time to peer into the eyes of the animals who are farmed for food and fibre they would see before them, staring nervously back, a being who, just like us, desperately wants to live. The power balance here is enormous, yet the garden of our souls knows it should also tilt towards kindness as we utter the words I see youand the world will be as it should.
Roaming in a public reserve with many years fleece eventually proving too great a burden to carry, this handsome boy found kindness in the nick of time. Named Better because thats exactly what he deserves, a much-needed haircut was promptly scheduled as our work begun to ensure his would be a life worth living from here on in.
With Betters body soon relieved of over 13 kilograms of wool, it is unlikely this five year old sheep had ever met with a shearer in his life. With painful burrs and spear grass gently removed from his skin, this dear wether told us he did indeed feel better, half closing his eyes and sinking into the touch of our hands across his now closely clipped fleece as we removed the painful grasses that had penetrated Betters skin.
One thing we know for sure his life is about to get a whole lot Better from here! Our unending thanks go out to the kind hearted workers in the area who refused to rest in their effort to seek a safe outcome for Better.
Good, better, best. Never let it rest. Til your good is better and your better is best. St. Jerome
Just a reminder that our show, Nature Photography in the Goldfields, is on for another two weekends at the Newstead Railway Arts Hub.
Bronwyn, Patrick and I have been delighted with the response so far and it would be great to see you drop by.
The Hub will be open from 10am 4pm, this weekend and next.
