The abuse of Aboriginal prisoners with disabilities in Australian jails is confronting, and ongoing. In the final piece in this special 5-part series for New Matilda, Michael Brull makes the case for urgent action. Click on the numbers to read each of the other stories in the series 1, 2, 3 and 4.
HRW observed: All prisoners face delayed or inadequate access to health care due to overcrowding. Prisoners with disabilities, however, face particular barriers accessing specialized services due to lack of proper diagnoses, long waiting lists, negative staff attitudes, and lack of resources. Impossibly large caseloads prevent mental health professionals from providing appropriate care for prisoners, who often have complex needs. Furthermore, Mental health staff often fail to discuss with prisoners the nature, purpose, risks, and benefits of different types of treatment so that the prisoner is not in a position to make informed decisions on whether or not to consent to the treatment. The effectiveness of their work is also often impeded by antagonistic relations between prisoners and prison staff.
The difficulties begin with the admission process. When prisoners are taken into prison, staff do not have the time, training, or tools to effectively identify people with disabilities and their support needs. Both the Western Australia and Queensland Departments of Corrective Services said staff receive initial training on disability and mental health, but there is no specific refresher or on-going training required or provided.
As staff do not identify the disabilities and needs of prisoners, prisons fail to provide appropriate and adequate services and accommodations for the particular needs of prisoners with disabilities. Prisons in Western Australia and Queensland were not consistently assessing or collecting data on disability (NSW may be exempt, due to the government refusing to cooperate with HRW). A WA prison nurse said, There is no disability assessment here. We dont have time, we dont have the facilities, and we dont have the nursing staff. Prison is not set up for people with disabilities.........
UPDATE 28 Jan: Parts of this article relating to Labor are
now out of date with ABC TV News tonight clearly showing Labor
leader Rebecca White saying that Labor will not govern in
minority. See update at bottom of article.
UPDATE 31 Jan: And I missed it at the time but Will Hodgman also on the first day of the campaign said "We will govern in majority or not at all [..]"
1. Despite widespread reports to the contrary, neither major party appears to have given an explicit commitment that they will not govern in minority should no party win a majority at this year's Tasmanian state election.
2. The leaders have only given various, often ambiguous, commitments that they will only govern "alone" or that they will not govern via deals with, or with the support of, minor parties.
3. A widespread belief that if there is no agreement between parties the Liberals would be forced to keep governing appears to follow instead from a direction from Governor Underwood to Premier Bartlett to form a government in 2010.
4. In theory, a government in such a position could instead resign, but this seems unlikely in practice.
5. In the absence of at least a tacit arrangement between parties, the most likely outcome of a hung parliament would be the Liberal Party continuing in minority unless/until the government was defeated on the floor of the House.
6. For this reason, a parliament without any party holding a majority might (if all parties stuck to their pre-election commitments but no party gave any new ones) be unusually unstable.
There's been quite a bit of media coverage in the last week about what happens in the 2018 Tasmanian state election if no party wins a majority. This started when the ABC's Rhiana Whitson put a question to the Premier, Will Hodgman, about a scenario in which the Liberals might be left in office in minority because neither party wants to govern in that condition. When Hodgman's response stressed the concept of a "A majority Hodgman Liberal Government" (or nothing) this was widely taken as flagging that he would resign and let somebody else be Premier in minority, a repeat of the...

A successful March for takayna / Tarkine was held in Hobart, Tasmania today, with more than 1000 people rallying. Speakers at the event included Bob Brown, Australian Actor Essie Davis, Tasmanian Aboriginal Centres Theresa Sainty, The Crayfish Man Todd Walsh and Tasmanian Greens Leader Cassy OConnor. Bob Brown Foundation, organisers of todays March for takayna / Tarkine have ramped up the campaign to defend takayna / Tarkine in the lead up to the Tasmanian election.

Leaving aside the fact that their (Liberals) support of the poker machine industry is repugnant, their management of the financial aspects are simply disgraceful. It smacks of financial incompetence and has a mighty whiff of corruption of governance
Yesterday (23/2/2018) I attended a protest in front of Parliament House against poker machine industry. There were 4 excellent speakers: Leanne Minshull, Pat Caplice, James Boyce and Greg James. I learnt a thing or two from each of them. I was already well aware of the depressing dishonesty and multiple misrepresentations of many Liberal politicians and industry lobbyists in attempting to justify their cowardly acquiescence to the greed and carelessness generated agenda of the poker machine gambling industry. I was not aware of the extent to which Premier Hodgman has failed to understand his own partys policy and the implications thereof
On Monday next week, if Hodgman wins, the logging, mining and off-road vehicle invasion of the Tarkine will be racked up and the privatisation of all Tasmanias National parks, from Cradle to Maria Island, will be truly ugly, Bob Brown said today. The Tarkine needs to be protected, Australian Actor, Essie Davis said when she spoke at todays event

Over the past few years, colleges and universities all over the world have been creating courses revolving around cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. Now the subject is slowly infecting the halls of high school students who want to learn about these emerging technologies. Because of the increased student interest, this week a Business and Personal Finance teacher from Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey announced plans to add the topic of cryptocurrencies to his course next semester.
Students all over the world are interested in cryptocurrencies and the subject is being taught throughout many college campuses. However, the trend is starting to find its way into high school classrooms as younger scholars are fascinated by this technology. Just recently news.Bitcoin.com reported on a high school in Brisbane Australia where students had such an interest in bitcoin that it prompted students to create a cryptocurrency information night. This week the students at Union Catholic High School in Scotch Plains, New Jersey are also curious about digital currencies and the schools Business and Personal Finance class plans to add cryptocurrencies to the course next semester.

Quiz. The information provided should help you work out
why you missed a question or three! If you havent already done the
Quiz from yesterday then have a go at it before you read the
answers. I hope this helps you develop an understanding of modern
monetary theory (MMT) and its application to macroeconomic
thinking. Comments as usual welcome, especially if I have made an
Estimates of cyclical fiscal balances by the IMF and other bodies are typically biased upward.
The answer is False.
The answer relies on the knowledge that the implicit estimates of potential GDP that are produced by central banks, treasuries and other bodies are too pessimistic.
The reason is that they typically use the NAIRU to compute the full capacity or potential level of output which is then used as a benchmark to compare actual output against. The reason? To determine whether there is a positive output gap (actual output below potential output) or a negative output gap (actual output above potential output).
These measurements are then used to decompose the actual fiscal outcome at any point in time into structural and cyclical fiscal balances. The fiscal components are adjusted to what they would be at the potential or full capacity level of output.
So if the economy is operating below capacity then tax revenue would be below its potential level and welfare spending would be above. In other words, the fiscal balance would be smaller at potential output relative to its current value if the economy was operating below full capacity. The adjustments would work in reverse should the economy be operating above full capacity.
If the fiscal outcome is in deficit when computed at the full employment or potential output level, then we call this a structural deficit and it means that the overall impact of discretionary fiscal policy is expansionary irrespective of what the actual fiscal outcome is presently. If it is in surplus, then we have a structural surplus and it means that the overall impact of discretionary fiscal policy is contractionary irrespective of what the actual fiscal outcome is presently.
So you could have a downturn which drives the fiscal balance into a deficit but the underlying structural position could be contractionary (that is, a surplus). And vice versa.
The difference between the actual fiscal outcome and the structural component is then considered to be the cyclical fiscal outcome and it arises because the economy is deviating from its potential.
As you can see, the estimation of the...
ReachTEL (after redistributing undecided) Liberal 48 Labor
32.2 Green 12.5 JLN 5.3 (4.0 excluding seats not contested) Others
ReachTEL has historically skewed against Labor and to the Greens in Tasmanian elections
Most likely breakdown based on raw figures 13-9-3 (close to 14-8-3)
Most likely breakdown based on correction for past skew 13-10-2 (close to 13-11-1 or 12-11-2)
Aggregate of all polling 13-10-2
Current prediction 13-10-2
The first independent poll of the Tasmanian election has been released and it confirms growing suspicions over the past few weeks that the Liberals will probably retain an outright majority, although it may well be a majority of one. Moreover given the historic tendency of ReachTEL to skew against Labor and to the Greens, the poll can be taken as suggesting that the Greens are in serious trouble and that none of their seats are safe. I am a little sceptical of whether that past pattern will continue.
The poll published by the Mercury today has a total sample size of 3,179 with 641 in Bass, 636 in Braddon, 624 in Denison, 633 in Franklin, 645 in Lyons. A few aspects of the poll create interpretation issues:
1. The pollster has polled support for the Jacqui Lambie Network (JLN) in both Denison and Franklin, where the Network has no candidates.
2. The pollster has provided "Undecided" figures (2.4-5.0% varying by electorate). However ReachTEL defines "Undecided" differently from other pollsters. If a voter is undecided when first asked their vote, but on the second attempt names a party, then this voter is treated as "Undecided" (Other pollsters include this voter as a voter who has a preference for a given party). If a voter doesn't name a party on the second prompt, they are excluded from the survey. (Newspoll defines this sort of voter as "undecided" but also excludes them from the survey). The figures ReachTEL supplied to the Mercury would have included the breakdowns of the "Undecided" voters by party. Without the full figures, I can only distribute them in proportion.
Figures without skew adjustments
With the "Undecided" voters redistributed proportionally, but with no adjustments for the history of ReachTEL skew, the following are the results:
As I write this my home City's temperature is sitting on 23.3 degrees centigrade, which is rather comfortable, compared to a hot week ahead for my former home town of Adelaide which is bracing itself for several days around 38-39 degrees centigrade.
Overseas, you hear of Australia's beach culture, and one of the reasons is indeed our hot climate, especially during February - traditionally our hottest month.
So with a glass of Victorian chardonnay at my side, and hubby looking after the kids, I sat down to take a look at the websites of two of the biggest UFO organisations in Australia. Here are my observations.
1. UFO Research (New South Wales) Incorporated.
Up front I must say that I am far more interested in the quality of information provided on a website, than how it looks to the viewer. I found this website to be extremely easy to navigate, having just four main areas, namely 'events;' 'sightings;' 'membership;' and 'archives.' It opens up to the 'events' page.
Here we find current events - details of the group's upcoming monthly meetings, with speakers and a summary of what they will be talking about. Over the last few years, under the leadership of Mariana Flynn (recently retired as President) a large range of overseas speakers have appeared at the group's meeting, together with a diverse range of Australian researchers. Here you can also sign up for notifications of events by email.
The 'sightings' area opens up to (a) report a sighting; (b) UFO sightings guestbook and (c) UFO sighting reports. Individuals wishing to report a UFO sighting can choose to either complete an on-line report form, or write a guestbook entry. When I checked out the guest book, I found reports dated between 1958 and 2017. Many of these appear to be of mundane objects, and it would hav...
Earlier this week, New Matilda published a story from economics columnist Ian McAuley on why Donald Trumps strategy of boosting the military was a poor one. He linked it to the arms race that preceded the collapse of the Soviet Union. Iliana Nikolova, a US-based academic, responds.
One of the most intriguing questions of modern history is: Why did the Soviet Union collapse? The dominant narratives offering an answer to this question are two.
Both narratives are incomplete and erroneous. Incomplete because they dont take into consideration the historical context and the irrevocable correlation between American imperialism (a by-product of the end of World War II) and the rise of the Soviet Union as a superpower (also a by-product of the end of the World War II). Erroneous because they aim to explain the collapse of the Soviet Union without a critical analysis of global capitalism and its implications on world economic dynamics.St. Basils Cathedral, Red Square in Moscow. (IMAGE: Flickr, Seth Morabito)
The imperialists narrative is not new, it is the same narrative that their predecessors the colonialists have been using to explain why people around the world were colonized it is their fault, they are backwards, they are aggressive, they cant manage themselves, they live in primitive oppressive societies, they subject the...

While the process of formulating the MDBP was long and fraught with governance issues, the four affected states (QLD, NSW, VIC & SA) agreed to implement it in 2012 for the health of the river and its many and diverse communities and uses.
It appears that lobbying from Big Ag in particular the cotton industry, which by its own admission uses a staggering 26% of all Australian agricultural irrigation water and then exports 99% of their product resulted in the proposed amendment to take 70GL out of the system further upstream instead of retaining this resource downstream as environmental flows.
Withdrawing more water upstream against community sentiment is deeply flawed and a rejection of the tenets of water sovereignty because its allowing commercial use to quite literally ship our scarce water resources overseas for profit.
When we export cotton, rice, beef, wine any agricultural product we are exporting our water.
Environmental flows control the timing, quality, and volume of water flows to sustain river ecologies and the communities that depend on them. Calling them environmental seems to be part of the problematic discourse that allows governments and the media to pit greenies against farmers, instead of enabling a holistic discussion that acknowledges the importance of healthy river ecologies to all life, including that sustained by farmers.
Removing a further 70GL of environmental flows for the benefit of cotton farms and other big water users (Im looking at you, rice farms) is a threat to the very existence of those downstream. Broken Hill is running out of clean drinking water the issue is critical, and not even about the more complicated questions around water rights for commercial activities and how to balance these with ecological health, recreational use, and basic human needs its the basic human need at stake here.
In a related but separate current issue around the MDBP, works have commenced to run a pipeline from the junction of the Murray and Darling Rivers at Wentworth 300km north to supply fresh drinking water to Broken Hill which f...
People are probably wondering who I really am- considering all the tripe that is out there about me. The articles, the videos, and the army of trolls- all of them anonymous who claim to know everything about me who are over eager to tell everyone what they think of me.
The question I have is how many other non famous people do you know who have the same attention on them as I do.
Entire YouTube channels have been designed about me- most notably that by John Kilrush aka Doug Mesner aka Doug Misicko aka Satanic Temples Lucien Greaves aka all the OTHER names this idiot claims. The dude believes he is the Legion of the internet. But with all the crap in his life- it seems his sole focus is on me.
If this dude and his Satanic Temple followers arent threatened by me- what other reason would they spend so much time focused on discrediting and attacking me? And attacking my supporters? And anyone who would listen to me?
They will claim I am crazy- but in two months time- I put my house up for sale and sold it- bought another- packed up everything I owned and moved 1/2 way across the country. And I did this alone- all by my lonesome. Does this fit the image of a disorganized crazy person? And since none of these anonymous trolls are actually in my life- except for trying to constantly intrude on it- how would they really know?
Esp considering I do my best to avoid them like the plague. The answer is they dont obviously. But they sure do share their opinions like they do.
Which again begs the point as to why? What other non famous nobody garners the attention that I do? And I am their ONLY focus. They are solely and ONLY focused on me.
Again it begs the question as to why? Why do they feel I am so special? What makes me warrent so much of their attention and focus?
If I do a video- within minutes they are commenting on it- generally before I can even finish. Every time. What makes me so special that they lie in wait for me? And how do they find the time to do so every time?
Obviously there is more to them than meets the eye- esp considering all of them are ALWAYS anonymous. Doug Mesner- who is actually Doug Misicko- has a myriad of aliases- which also begs the question why- not to mention how can you trust someone who constantly lies about his own name.
I am a nobody. Ask 100 people out on the street who I am and not one of them will know. So again you need to ask yourself why is all of this obsession being placed on me?
The answer is simple. It is because I am telling truth that they are desperate for others not to know. There IS no other reason.
So one last time I will beg the question as to why?

Kevin Walshy Walsh from GMC personally presented the guitar.
Stephen has since put it on eBay to raise funds for St Giles.
He was so rapt with it he sent all around the world to all the tea manufacturers, including Unilever in England and New Zealand.

They loved the voice and music bed. They said the voice and music worked so well together and suits the product just perfectly. Hats off to our Shirley Lee and David Lay.

Earlier this week, we published a piece by Melissa ODonnell arguing that the private lives of elected leaders should not be entirely off limits. Melbourne-based philosopher Janna Thompson replies.
Is Barnaby Joyces affair a private matter that should not be publically discussed? To answer, I think we need to make a distinction between two issues.
It is possible to answer yes to the first question (as ODonnell does) and yet believe that scrutiny of private lives ought, in most cases, to be kept out of politics. It is possible to approve of the exposure of a hypocrite who claims to stand for family values while still resisting the practice of publicising the private affairs of politicians.
Politicians are not paragons of virtue. There are many, many examples from recent history of politicians who had affairs, slept around or divorced their partners. Some of these were good leaders, or at least effective in getting things done. We are better off for their being in politics.
To make private lives the object of scrutiny, and private faults or vices a reason for condemnation, is to make virtue a requirement for holding political office. This would be bad for many reasons. It would keep out of politics talented people who do not want their private lives scrutinised, for whatever reason. It would turn the press gallery into a gutter press, concentrating on exposing and discussing the latest sexual scandal rather than focussing on the business of the nation. It would turn politics into soap opera.Barnaby Joyce and wife Natalie (they are now separated) at the 2017 Mid-Winter Ball.
Most of us are not all that virtuous, or not all the time, and insisting on virtue in all private lives would ensure that politicians would find devious, secret ways to sin to the detriment of the people they are involve...
The shocking pokies losses for every pub and club in Tasmania When I revealed the most 20 harmful poker machine venues earlier this month, Tasmanians were quite rightly shocked, Mr Wilkie said. Now that this more detailed data is out there for all to see, it paints an even grimmer picture of just how much money is sucked out of communities and lost in these venues. And it confirms that big business is the big winner from gambling addiction because the same names pop up over and over again Alliance for Gambling Reform ...

A woman is severely injured after being bitten by a shark off the coast of Sydney. The swimmer was in the water at Congwong Beach in La Perouse at 7pm on Friday when she was attacked by what is believed to have been a shark. In the wake of the attack, the local council has announced all beaches in the area will be closed on 'for at least Saturday'. The woman, who is aged in her 50s, was taken to St George Hospital where she is being treated for severe lacerations to one of her legs. A NSW Ambulance spokesman said it was unclear what species of shark had bitten the woman.
Australia has no coherent population plan other than to
inundate the major cities with people. Instead of a well though-out
population policy, the strategy has been to stoke overall economic
growth to support big business. This suits the property industry
and retailers but GDP per capita growth is stagnating while
ordinary Australians are worse off.
Peter Dutton and Tony Abbott have both recently called out for a reduction of immigration to Australia. To quote Mr Abbott: "At the moment weve got stagnant wages, unaffordable housing, clogged infrastructure and there is no doubt the rate of immigration impacts on all of these things.
We support Mr Abbott's comments but it's unfortunate he didn't consider this while he was Prime Minister. Australia is suffering cumulative economic and environmental damage from unconstrained growth.
It is incorrect of Peter Dutton to suggest that in the Labor years the number peaked at about 305,900 in one year which was an enormous number, weve got that number down now below 190,000
While it is true that net overseas migration (NOM) which includes both permanent and temporary long-term residents peaked under Labor (at 315,700), it was still running at 245,500 as at the year to June 2017.
Most importantly, Peter Dutton failed to mention that Australias permanent migrant intake has never been higher than under this Coalition Government, set at nearly 210,000 a year currently.
Currently 60% of Australias growth is skilled migration whereas the humanitarian intake is less than 10%.
Foreign aid has also been significantly cut whilst the coalition has been in power. This is particularly true for overseas family planning services and the access to education that is required to empower women to choose the size of their families.
Paul Hawken, who was the keynote speaker at Melbournes Sustainable Living Festival, stated that family planning and access to education are together the most significant global responses to addressing climate change.
SPA calls for a fundamental change to population policy that addresses population issues both nationally and globally. This should involve reducing total migration to around 70 000 per a...
