Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych464,691On 2012 November 13/14, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses Earth's southern Hemisphere. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow begins in northern Australia and crosses the South Pacific Ocean with on other no landfall. The Moon's penumbral shadow produces a partial eclipse visible from a much larger region covering Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific. For those traveling to Australia for the eclipse, please note that the eclipse occurs on the morning of Nov. 14 local time.

Good article about #rogaining  - I used to do it years ago - it's great, not only for navigating using map and compass in the bush, but excellent for gaining confidence walking at night by moonlight. That confidence spills over into other areas - I couldn't recommend it highly enough for families, couples or groups whether you're highly competitive or not. Once you're got your night eyes in it's amazing how many features it's possible to see comfortably.

Help create wetland habitat! Less than five kilometres from Geelong lies an internationally significant wetland!

"Every year, thousands of birds flock to the former Moolap Salt Works site, home to long-distance migrants such as the Critically Endangered Curlew Sandpiper (featured) and Endangered Red Knot, along with well-loved Aussie species such as the Red-capped Plover and Blue-winged Parrot.

This unlikely biodiversity hotspot has become an important urban refuge for some of Australia’s most threatened birds, including our migratory shorebirds. These ‘creatures of habit’ return to the same site each year and cannot easily find a new home if this site is lost.

An explanation of SA electricity pricing and the role of big business:

"South Australians deserve a sensible discussion of these issues, but instead they’ve had nothing but hysteria blaming these problems on their nation-leading wind industry. So let’s have a look at what is actually happening in the SA electricity market.

Neither the Treasurer, Arrium, nor anyone else has bothered to explain to SA taxpayers why Pelican Point wasn’t fully operating in the first place, since it is the most efficient, lowest emission thermal generator in Australia. It has been on go-slow for several years because it couldn’t compete with low electricity prices and had “reputedly” sold its gas off to the export market.

Pelican Point’s owners were able to sell their gas to the export market because several gas companies, including Santos, have built gas export facilities in Queensland that link Australia’s eastern gas market to higher-priced Asian markets, with the first exports in 2014 .

The link to the export market is one of the main causes of higher gas prices and Pelican Point’s go-slow. Santos knows this. In fact they claimed that they weren’t too worried about profitability of their export terminal, because they really wanted to use it to increase domestic gas prices all along .

This is well worth reading about being female staff in the service industry. I've been in the position of literally being able to look down (from upstairs) on some amazing staff working with customers. They provide solace, encouragement, shelter, and a welcoming environment for interviews and so on. They deserve respect and acknowledgement for being there when needed. They work damned hard and keep smiling no matter what crap is happening in their own lives.
Our servers are great, and they deserve penalty rates!

If the establishment in question requires the women to wear tiny/skimpy outfits as part of their job...they damn well better have people like Jordan working there. If your job is to be eye candy for men...your employer should be like Jordan and if they aren't...look for another gig. This should be mandatory reading for all service industry management (and the ladies who endure this shit every day).
+Black Acre Brewing Co. is the place Jordan owns...this is worth the long read.

However, the oil giant has put in a third submission and there will be no big surprise if it gets the tick this time around. With NOPSEMA’s go-ahead, the huge rig from South Korea will be on its way to the gulf, in the opposite direction to a multitude of whales swimming north for the breeding season, to be in place by next summer.

A look at the impact of BP’s exploratory drilling-gone-wrong in the Gulf of Mexico might dampen some of the excitement – 4.9 million barrels of oil spewed into the ocean. The spill decimated local fisheries and tourism leaving 12,000 people jobless in New Orleans. The cost so far is US$56 billion and the ecological impact catastrophic.

Thousands of tonnes of oil remain on the gulf floor. The spill put oil up on 1200km of coast. Beside 11 human deaths, millions of other creatures died, including dolphins, whales, turtles and myriad fish down the food chain.

In the middle of BP’s world’s-worst oil spill, Martin Ferguson, Labor’s then federal minister for resources, handed the same company a huge central region of the Great Australian Bight to drill for oil. He put no extra safeguards in place, never mind that he knew this region was to be declared a marine national park. Ferguson’s decision was endorsed by his party and by the subsequent Coalition government.

Australia’s caretaker Environment Minister Greg Hunt has raised no qualms. What’s more Chevron is also lined up, to begin drilling in the Bight in 2017.

There is a view inside the government that Labor’s ground game secured government for Labor during the state election in Victoria, and has now brought Labor close to government federally. “We have nothing to compete with it,” one senior Liberal said.

“We have nothing to compete with it,”

Oh, come on, take a bit of a reality check for a nanosecond! The LNP has had massive financial and media support from what we were told were influential sectors in the country. The bulk of the main stream media sang the praises of the LNP last election, bagged Labor, minor parties and the independents mercilessly, showed no ability to assess policies or likely outcomes that actually matter to voters, and did the same this election. They were wrong. They all succumbed to believing their own self centred hype "we're right, everyone else is wrong".

Rob Oakeshott presented it well here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxnFMCWSlhg when he discussed how his view of what mattered changed when he became an independent. When you only talk with people who already support you, you aren't aware that there could be another version of events.

It’s a wonder that any of them got the date correct.

However, even so, not a single one of our mainstream ‘news’ agencies has bothered to apologise to the Australian public for being so ignorant of the actual state of opinion in Australia. For the entire length of the election campaign. For the third election campaign in a row. Problem? What problem?

And it seems that Aussies have even given up being exasperated. We now seem to just expect our press to get it wrong and then get it wrong again. To the extent that it isn’t even mentioned anymore. This morning it was immediately obvious that none of our press agencies was willing to acknowledge that everything they had said for the three months up to about 9.30 pm the night before had been complete and utter bullshit.

Nobody, in any paper or on any channel, bothered to observe that the majority of consumers might have actually been better served if they had simply asked a local tradesman or butcher, or had a conversation with their hairdresser. Instead all I found was instant, universal, collective, amnesia.
...
The population may be in favour of [assorted reforms], and in most cases our politicians would do it if they could, but when it comes to almost every progressive issue facing our society our mighty corporate press overlords will not even allow us to discuss the matter in our own media or within our own parliaments.

If any unwanted conversation does break out then it will be immediately howled down and demonised. The person speaking will be labelled a radical, immoral, wide-eyed, dangerous, crazy, or a danger to our society and/or our kiddies. Then the whole thing will never be mentioned again in the mainstream press except to belittle the idea or the proponent should they ever dare resurface in public.

Hey folks! Do you remember Greenville High School? The place with the librarian who made the appeal to folks asking you to please send #JustOneBook  ?

Well.... here's an update for ya: https://throwingchanclas.com/2016/06/15/just-one-book-updates-and-observations/

I know a whole lot of folks boosted the signal then, and a lot of folks sent books as well, either from our personal collections or from the library's wishlist. This is so great! It makes me happy in my <3.

If you want to be part of helping out this excellent library, they are updating their Amazon Wishlist here http://amzn.to/29mcUop with their new needs as they figure them out. If you want to send them something gently used, here's the address

Library Project/Margaret Garcia
PO Box 585
Greenville, CA 95947

She does ask that folks just send ONE book and not a huge boxful, because they are having trouble sorting through that size of influx - although there has been the added bonuses of not only have they been able to build class sets of particular books, but a lot of duplicates/overflow are going to similarly in-need schools and libraries nearby!___For those in the US.

Were journalists that gullible or simply following their masters' direction? Just look at the headlines from the Murdoch News Corp papers in the article.

'BARRIE CASSIDY: Just finally, Malcolm Turnbull did say throughout the campaign, ‘We will win, we will win’. He was saying it again last night. Journalists were clearly briefed during the campaign, by the Coalition, that the Coalition would win. Are we seeing here gullible journalists? Or is it the Coalition that can’t read the numbers? '

The so called "hung parliament" is good for the country! This is how the system is designed to work! Successful negotiating skills are a sign of maturity and more often lead to decisions which take into account the needs of multiple sectors of society ... bullying, hissy fits, whining and petulance are exactly what we don't want.

Having spent many years in various workplaces it's common to notice that good managers/leaders don't make much noise, but things get done efficiently and without fanfare.
The louder and more abrasive people are, the less they get done and the less pleasant is the workplace.

#auspol  
h/t +God Emperor Lionel Lauer 

Contrary to what you'd think from all the weeping & wailing by the two major parties when it happens, a hung parliament is only bad for them, not for the country.
"Despite media commentary to the contrary, recent political history in Australia is that governments rarely have a majority in the Senate. If this is the measure of instability, it is not new, it is the new normal.
What is relatively new is governments not having an outright majority in the House of Representatives. All this does is add a new venue for negotiation.
Unfettered power is not the norm in any sector of the community. Businesses have to ensure they don't displease customers or, in some cases, suppliers. Employers now have to listen to employees. Is it so bad that governments have to keep an eye out for what might get through parliament rather than stamping their feet and hoping the recalcitrants will all go away?
We may be in for a new era of "adult government" - one where there is much greater use of cross-party committees to evaluate or even develop policy. There is a broad consensus in the health sector, also accepted by consumer groups, about acceptable directions for reform. There is no reason these types of changes cannot occur in the new political reality."

Successful negotiating skills are a sign of maturity and more often lead to decisions which take into account the needs of multiple sectors of society ... bullying, hissy fits, whining and petulance are exactly what we don't want.

Having spent many years in various workplaces it's common to notice that good managers/leaders don't make much noise, but things get done efficiently and without fanfare.
The louder and more abrasive people are, the less they get done and the less pleasant is the workplace.

Too tired to read this right now - hopefully later in the week.

"Conventional wisdom conflates self-interest and selfishness. It makes sense to be self-interested in the long run. It does not make sense to be reflexively selfish in every transaction. And that, unfortunately, is what market fundamentalism and libertarian politics promote: a brand of selfishness that is profoundly against our actual interest."___Too tired to read this right now - hopefully later in the week.

He’s been called ‘the greatest voice this country has ever recorded’, but how much do we really know about the blind Yolngu musician, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu?

2.5 million votes & 50,000 overseas votes yet to be counted - so there could be a fair bit of movement in the 5 doubtful seats.

Not an easy couple of months for Duncan Storrar, but he's still asking questions and life is moving on slowly.

"Not particularly impressed" at being unable to vote would seem a bit of an understatement.

"Western Australia State Manager at the AEC Marie Neilson said a remote community pre-polling team visited Roebourne on Monday to collect votes, but not many people were aware of the visit.

"That communication didn't come out and so, quite rightly, people of Roebourne were not particularly impressed with our performance," Ms Neilson said."

Dear Australia: Just a reminder that you can't waste your vote! Regardless of who you think - or the media claims - will win tomorrow, go ahead & Vote #1 for which ever candidate or party you prefer, no matter how small they are, because if they fail, 100% of your vote will still go to your next choice.
I personally will be putting two minor parties¹ first, followed by the Greens, then Labor, with the LNP & the racist parties last.
All the details are here in the full cartoon:
