Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych311,113On 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. For more information, including specific timezones and best countries to view from see NASA's website here: http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/SEmono/TSE2012/TSE2012.html #sciencesunday    #solareclipse   #eclipse   #NASA   @109783903175191665261 Total Solar Eclipse2012-11-13 23:00:00134

Johnny Stork7,288Spirituality & Self Development CircleWe all strive towards various personal, professional and for many, spiritual goals in life. In our increasingly crowded and interconnected planet, we are often reminded of how each of out lives intersect and how each of us share many of the same values and needs. Many of these shared values and shared needs included the welfare of others, the welfare of the entire planet and the welfare of all living creatures.One way to think of what it means to be "spiritual" or concerned with "self" development is simply to be concerned with something, or someone, beyond yourself, beyond the personal. Holding a transpersonal world-view.The people in this circle share these values, these interests in developing personally, professionally and spiritually for the sake of all people as well as themselves. I am honoured to share this circle of humanitarian, compassionate, learned and transpersonally inclined friends. #transpersonalpsychology   #spirituality   #selfdevelopment   #positivepsychology  2014-02-05 00:55:3849011616

Brett Gibson5,754It's been a while since I've shared my "Australia" circle (probably 12 months) - *But I do keep it up to date. *Inactive people or Brands are kicked out. New ones are added.

Tessa Schlesinger12,664These are the people I follow. If you would like to follow these people, feel free. There is no guarantee that they will add you if you do. You will be following them because you would like to hear what they have to say. There is no need to plus it, add a comment, and then share it in order for you to be added to some new circle which will be shared. This is the way we shared circles for the first two years. So feel free to add, or not. And I'm not in it so it isn't promoting myself. It's a gift to you, if you would like it. And, I suppose it's a gift to those who are in the circle that I freely give with no expectation of return.2013-11-03 12:52:17133335

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213
Stephanie Calahan1,218FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 4 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of Fabulous Woman on G+ that are Actively posting and Engaging on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1491 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone PUBLIC.  I hope you will share it far and wide too.  #Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  Groups 1-4 do not indicate any specific preference to any woman.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.Fabulous Women on G+ Part 1 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/Srvv4xzeuYmFabulous Women on G+ Part 2 Can be found here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/DRFwReXQvbFFabulous Women on G+ Part 3 Can be found here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/7wiyEUFuKsHWhat You Can Do Now------------------------------------* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".  (You won't be able to see the circle on mobile or ipad -- you must be on a desktop or laptop.)  See other G+ quirks below.* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share each other's brilliance.#fabwomenonG+If You Received Notification About this Circle--------------------------------------------------------------------If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified me or others in the circle as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9tI thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless it is 100% warranted. G+ Quirky Things to Note----------------------------------------* Google+ has a daily limit of 500 for adding people to your circles. If you haven't added 50 people or more today, you should be fine to add one of the circles daily.2013-06-09 22:47:5043927622

Tim Winton's plea - it's long, but well worth reading in its entirety and sharing widely:
"We're here to call a spade a spade, to declare that what has become political common sense in Australia over the past 15 years is actually nonsense. And not just harmless nonsense; it's vicious, despicable nonsense.  For something foul is festering in the heart of our community, something shameful and rotten. 

It's a secret we don't want to acknowledge. We hide it from ourselves. At times, it seems we're content to have others hide it from us and for us. But we hide this dark secret at great cost. To faceless strangers. To innocent people. To powerless children.  We hide this dirty secret at a terrible cost to ourselves as individuals and as a community.

Tim Winton's plea - it's long, but well worth reading in its entirety and sharing widely:
"We're here to call a spade a spade, to declare that what has become political common sense in Australia over the past 15 years is actually nonsense. And not just harmless nonsense; it's vicious, despicable nonsense.  For something foul is festering in the heart of our community, something shameful and rotten. 

It's a secret we don't want to acknowledge. We hide it from ourselves. At times, it seems we're content to have others hide it from us and for us. But we hide this dark secret at great cost. To faceless strangers. To innocent people. To powerless children.  We hide this dirty secret at a terrible cost to ourselves as individuals and as a community.

What secret are we hiding? Well, it's awkward, and kind of embarrassing. You see, we're afraid. Terrified. This big, brash wealthy country. We have an irrational phobia. We're afraid of strangers. Not rich strangers. No. The ones who frighten us out of our wits are the poor strangers. People displaced by war and persecution. We're even scared of their traumatised children. And if they flee their war-torn countries in boats, well, then, they're twice as threatening. They send us into wild-eyed conniptions. As if they're armed invaders. But these people arrive with nothing but the sweat on their backs and a crying need for safe refuge. Yet, they terrify us. So great and so wild is our fear, we can no longer see them as people, as fellow humans. First, we criminalised them. Then, we turned them into faceless objects. Cattle. Well, maybe that's not quite right. You see we're sentimental about cattle. Especially cattle on boats. We have values, you see, standards of decency. We hate to see suffering. We're moved to pity.

But for someone seeking asylum, someone arriving by boat, this special species of creature called a "boat person", the pity isn't there. Pity is forbidden. All the usual standards are overturned. Their legal right to seek asylum is denied. They're vilified as "illegals". And their suffering is denied. As if they're not our brothers and sisters. Yes, we hate suffering. But apparently their kind of suffering is no longer legitimate. And therefore, it's no longer our problem. Our moral and legal obligations to help them are null and void.
...
Now, of course, we don't see faces. And that's no accident. The government hides them from us. In case we feel the pity that's only natural. Asylum seekers are rendered as objects, creatures, cargo, contraband, and criminals. And so, quite deliberately, the old common sense of human decency is supplanted by a new consensus. Built on hidden suffering, maintained by secrecy. Cordoned at every turn by institutional deception. This, my friends, is the new common sense. According to this new dispensation, Australia does not belong to the wider world. We're nobody's fool. We have no obligations to our fellow suffering humans. Unless it suits us. Because we are exceptional. And beyond reproach. It seems we are set to distinguish ourselves by our callousness, by our unwavering hardness of heart. We will not be lectured to by outsiders. Or, come to think of it, by insiders, either. Not about human rights, not about torture, not about the incarceration of children. We will bully critics and whistleblowers into silence. We will smear them. We will shirtfront them.

Which is to say that we live now as hostages to our lowest fears. But to assent to this newly manufactured common sense is to surrender things that are sacred: our human decency, our moral right, our self-respect, our inner peace. To passively assent to this is to set out together on a road that leads to horrors, a path from which we must turn back before we lose our way entirely."

This doesn't just impact on the US. California supplies a lot of food to Australian supermarkets.

h/t +Pamela Zuppo 

#foodsecurity   #watersecurity   #drought   #climatechange  

The cost of climate change denial: No water, no economy for California, causing a major disruption throughout the country, no matter where you live.

California faces one more year of water supply. The state is in the grip of a record drought tied to climate change. This water crisis holds the potential to collapse California’s economy if the state truly runs out of water. What an irony that the state most focused on global warming may be its first catastrophic economic collapse victim.

California anchors U.S. economy
This is not an article about California. It is about you, in whatever state you live. California’s economy is so large and impacts so many other businesses that its potential collapse due to a water crisis will impact the pocketbooks of most Americans.

California has a $2.2 trillion annual economy. That makes California the seventh largest economy in the world. For all the greatness of Texas, the California economy is approximately twice the size.

California’s companies are the world’s technology leaders. Google, Apple, Facebook, Twitter, Cisco, Disney, Hewlett Packard, Tesla and Solar City all have their corporate headquarters in California. Little know Atomic General located in San Diego is a world leader in military drones. San Francisco and San Diego rank No. 1 and No. 3 among the top 10 biopharma clusters in the U.S.

California is also a global breadbasket: It is the world’s fifth largest supplier of food. The California agriculture industry is highly efficient, and the state is the largest food producer in the U.S., with only four percent of U.S. farms. California’s crop diversity is world class, with the state growing over 450 different crops. Crops exclusively grown by California in the U.S. include almonds, artichokes, dates, olives, raisins, pistachios and clover. The state also produces more than 86 percent of all lemons and 94 percent of all processed tomatoes in the U.S. You might want to drink to California’s agricultural success by having a glass of California wine, as the state is the world’s fourth largest wine producer.

Whether you are a Democrat or Republican, the state anchors your government spending plan as California is the largest federal tax payer among U.S. states. The state also pays more in federal taxes than it receives in federal spending.

California is unfortunately positioned to become the first case study on the cost of climate change denial. If California’s water crisis reduces its economic activity by 20 percent, that would equate to a $500 billion decline in our nation’s gross domestic production. This scale of economic decline would represent significant national job loss. It would represent significant food inflation from lost production. It would increase the national deficit from lost tax revenues from California. It would circumvent all the work by the Federal Reserve, Congress and the president to restore economic growth following the Great Recession.___This doesn't just impact on the US. California supplies a lot of food to Australian supermarkets.

Almost all other issues are superficial by comparison. What appear to be great crises are slight and evanescent when held up against the steady trickling away of our subsistence.

The avoidance of this issue is perhaps the greatest social silence of all. Our insulation from the forces of nature has encouraged a belief in the dematerialisation of our lives, as if we no longer subsist on food and water, but on bits and bytes. This is a belief that can be entertained only by people who have never experienced serious hardship, and who are therefore unaware of the contingency of existence."

How to diversify your energy needs! This time in Coober Pedy. Great to see more great projects that ARENA is involved with. But, wait! Is the govt still threatening to cut their funding? And is it still desperate to slash the RET? Is the gubment working with the big 3 energy companies to cobble innovation and investment in renewables? Yes?

The Tower of Brandis-Duh
The Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Amendment (Data Retention) Bill 2015 is a travesty, both major parties should hang their heads in shame, but they are shameless.  They know there is no evidence it will help lower crime or improve crime clearance rates, but they do know that film companies will love it ... and the "two years" of retention ... that will be forever, and the datastores will be abused, by criminals, for identity theft, kidnapping, blackmail  .... and will be abused by criminal politicians, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, to stifle dissent.

On Singapore, Bread & Lee Kuan Yew.

We have not only given businesses a clear message that we will not be manipulated; we have also made it clear that whatever the man was, ruthless tyrant or tireless leader, he deserves to be treated with decency and respect, and not exploited for personal or corporate gain.

Similarly, when restaurants offered free ice water to people queuing up to pay their respects, and some even brought out chairs for the elderly, we applauded them as if to assert that this is Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore—one where there is care and compassion for the needy and elderly, and where businesses serve the people, not exploit them .

A sentiment I'd love to see embraced in Australia!

On how BreadTalk shows the 'battle' over LKY's legacy. Now if only it can be kept decent and civil. "[T]he outpouring of displeasure at BreadTalk is more than just an indication of our collective frustration at money-minded businesses in general, or our disdain for crass advertising tactics, it is one of the many sites where we contest the meaning of Lee Kuan Yew’s life and legacy, and it is a way for us to express our ideals.

We have not only given businesses a clear message that we will not be manipulated; we have also made it clear that whatever the man was, ruthless tyrant or tireless leader, he deserves to be treated with decency and respect, and not exploited for personal or corporate gain.

[...]
The debate over Mr Lee’s legacy has engaged more Singaporeans than ever before, a kind of coming of age for political participation. So it is important that we make a fair assessment of the past, in order for us to make the right recommendations for the future.

Under Mr Lee, the old PAP was a party for the common man. The new PAP has lost sight of that, but we haven’t. If the events over the past few days have made anything clear, it’s that Singaporeans are quite sure of what they want. Now, all we need is a government that listens."___On Singapore, Bread & Lee Kuan Yew.

The cost of retaining the information is set to be partly covered by the taxpayer in what the Government described as a "significant" contribution.

There are concerns telecommunications companies will pass on the rest of the cost to consumers.

"Significant" contribution aka a great big new unnecessary tax

And this data will be stored where? The lowest bidding country? China perhaps? Safeguards? 'Trust us we'll keep your personal data safe - guaranteed!' And when it's hacked - 'oopsies, sorry'. What a pathetic govt and opposition. Thanks to the Greens and the independents who spoke out against this bill.

Yesterday, there was some deeply disappointing news concerning our fight for a strong renewable energy powered future. 

The renewable energy industry -- brow beaten after years of intense lobbying from the big 3 dirty power companies and a vicious offensive from the Coalition, struggling with significant job losses and decline in investment -- caved and reluctantly accepted a huge cut to the Renewable Energy Target (RET). They did this to save their industry, which is under attack. The outcome of this deal would be far from ideal, but our government wants a fate for the industry that is even worse. The death of the renewables industry, and the (short term) rise of the dirty 3: Origin, AGL and Energy Australia.

Yesterday, there was some deeply disappointing news concerning our fight for a strong renewable energy powered future. 

The renewable energy industry -- brow beaten after years of intense lobbying from the big 3 dirty power companies and a vicious offensive from the Coalition, struggling with significant job losses and decline in investment -- caved and reluctantly accepted a huge cut to the Renewable Energy Target (RET). They did this to save their industry, which is under attack. The outcome of this deal would be far from ideal, but our government wants a fate for the industry that is even worse. The death of the renewables industry, and the (short term) rise of the dirty 3: Origin, AGL and Energy Australia. 

As a former leader of the Liberal Party I've seen first hand the undue influence big corporations can have over politicians and public policy. It's time to shift the balance away from the big energy companies and their dirty and expensive power habits to Australian consumers who want cheaper and cleaner power. 

The dirty 3 companies are the main reason the Abbott Government is squibbing on its clear election promise to keep the RET at 41,000GWH. All three are complete hypocrites. They claim to support renewable energy while walking the corridors of power, lobbying to undermine it. 

And, unlike renewable energy backed companies, they've been getting away with screwing households on their electricity bills by hitting customers with almost obscene profit margins as energy retailers too. 

We don't need government legislation to break the strangle hold these big power companies have on our household energy, or our own clean energy futures. The dirty energy companies might want to protect their huge investments in coal, gas and coal seam gas, but we can -- right now -- stop them in their tracks. 

How? 

Join me in sending a powerful message to politicians and the dirty power companies that Australians want renewable energy and we're prepared to vote with our feet to get it. Switch your home or business power, it takes less than 5 minutes and you'll be joining the greenest power company in Australia: click here to switch now 

It's the one thing they will not be counting on, and right now it's the very best thing that you can do if you support renewable energy, our clean energy future and the job creation and investment it brings. 

Yesterday's outcome is indisputably bad for all of us; for future investment in large scale renewable energy projects and job creation, for our clean energy future and for our power prices. 

How did we even get to the point where even the industry that fought so hard for the RET is now accepting a drastically watered down stake in their own future success? You can point the finger squarely at the influence big companies like AGL, Energy Australia and Origin have on public policy, companies with a vested interest in bolstering the status quo of fossil fuel dominance and who have ensured the Coalition break their pre-election promise not to cut the Renewable Energy Target. [1] 

These companies only really care about one thing - and that's their profits. So let's hit them where it hurts and switch to a company that supports clean energy and is backed by 100 percent renewable power. 

Will you join me and thousands of GetUp members switching their energy supplier, and showing your support for clean energy? Click here: it takes just five minutes online to switch off the dirty 3 energy companies. 

Sincerely, 
John Hewson AM.

Is anyone surprised that the de-registration of traditional Aboriginal sites is related to the desire of mining companies to gain unfettered access?

In addition, how is mining related to the forced removal of people from settlements? I strongly suspect it has nothing to do with them being too expensive to maintain and everything to do with greed, avarice and unethical conduct.

"Patriarchal values are dangerous, too. Assumptions that all women are weak and vulnerable and all men just can’t help themselves from mauling women: those are harmful, erroneous belief systems that disempower women and enable aggressors. It’s not just men who perpetuate these beliefs either, they’re often spoken by women themselves when they warn one another, “It’s not safe to walk alone,” or, “You might get raped,” as they pass on myths of danger like old wives tales, stoking the fire of fear."

It's a conscious choice that the Abbott govt defunds domestic violence services while continuing to give generous concessions and subsidies to the hugely profitable, mostly foreign owned mining industry, where much of the profit goes offshore.*

There's a message there, I'm just not sure what it is. I would like however, to hear the values represented stated explicitly and clearly by the govt. Because as it stands their actions show that women and families suffering domestic violence are far, far less worthy of support than a mining company.

Go dark, and write to your Labor senator to tell them to oppose mandatory data retention Australia.  The senate vote is tonight, and Labor looks set to back the bill.

Once this is law, the tax payer and internet users will be paying through the nose for dragnet surveillance of all internet use in Australia.  Your data will be stored for a minimum of two years, and will be accessible without warrant for use by law enforcement and in civil cases.

Now is your last chance to make your voice heard.

"The Abbott government deserves condemnation for its cynical response last year to allegations about rape, sexual assaults and intimidation at Australia's immigration detention centre on Nauru. First, for denouncing and denigrating Save the Children staff for raising the alarm – as any reasonable person would expect the staff to do. Indeed, it is their obligation.

It also deserves condemnation for releasing Philip Moss's substantial report into those abuse allegations on a day the government's spin doctors well knew was already flooded with news of the death of former prime minister Malcolm Fraser. It received the report six weeks ago.

But this government, which so nonchalantly plumbs moral lows at almost every turn, properly deserves condemnation for failing to provide the standard of care and oversight at the Nauru detention centre that Australians would expect."

http://www.theage.com.au/comment/the-age-editorial/abbott-government-is-damned-by-moss-report-20150324-1m5upl.html

"... Mr Abbott then launched an assault on Professor Triggs saying she has lost the confidence of the government and her recent inquiry into children in detention was a "political stitch up".

"It's absolutely crystal clear, this inquiry by the President of the Human Rights Commission is a political stitch up," he said. 

"It's a political stitch up and it will be called out by members of this government."

Remember the attacks on Medicare? The GP co-payment that we were told had disappeared? It appears it's morphed into something worse. 

“Co-payment”, “price signal”, “value signal” or “direct billing”, it doesn’t matter what the Government calls it, the end result is still the same – it’s still a GP Tax, it’s still an attack on Medicare, and patients are still being hit for more."

From a report in the Medical Journal of Australia:
"Public discussion has mainly focused on the now retracted $5
reduction, and the freeze has received far less attention. Yet, with time, it will have a greater impact : $8.43 per non-concessional patient consultation by 2017–18, nearly double the amount of the rebate reduction.

“Co-payment”, “price signal”, “value signal” or “direct billing”, it doesn’t matter what the Government calls it, the end result is still the same – it’s still a GP Tax, it’s still an attack on Medicare, and patients are still being hit for more."

From a report in the Medical Journal of Australia:
"Public discussion has mainly focused on the now retracted $5
reduction, and the freeze has received far less attention. Yet, with time, it will have a greater impact : $8.43 per non-concessional patient consultation by 2017–18, nearly double the amount of the rebate reduction.
Our estimates are conservative and there is no way we can predict the amount GPs will charge once they are forced, for economic reasons, to introduce a copayment . The freeze will result in Medicare savings; however, patient out-of-pocket expenses will be higher than these savings because GPs will need to charge more than their lost income to recoup the additional implementation and operational costs we have discussed. The results of our study inform public debate by providing an objective measure of the minimum likely effect of the continuation of the freeze on Medicare schedule fees on general practice.

NSW, There is no such thing as a "wasted" vote. Be informed, think about what matters. Water security? Food security? Public ownership of utilities? Know who is funding the respective parties:

The Coalition has no plan for the next term of government beyond selling all of our hard earned assets to their rich and undeserving contributors. Poles and wires - gone. Disability services - gone. TAFE cuts. This cut, that cut. And they're splashing money about like it's Christmas AS LONG AS THEY CAN SELL EVERYTHING. Keep public assets in public hands. You have a clear choice when voting on Saturday. It's the same choice already made in Victoria and Queensland. When you vote, number ALL the squares on the polling papers and PUT THE LIBERALS AND THE NATIONALS LAST. #nswvotes  ___NSW, There is no such thing as a "wasted" vote.

Despite evidence of the harm being done to children, the heartbreaking reports, the horror stories, and the moral, ethical and sheer wrongness of holding children in detention, it appears that the govt with the backing of labor, have moved children from Darwin  *back into* detention on Nauru.

The liblab coalition disgust yet again. This is abhorrent treatment of children.  

Vote Greens. At the very least, they can't be worse. And isn't that saying something damning about the toxic state of our political system.

STOP THE BOAT!
Let's hope for some consistency about unwelcome maritime arrivals!

Did you know that last federal election, $21million was spent on political advertising in the 5 weeks prior to the election! Of that half was spent on slagging off the other party/parties.  Rather than raising awareness on key issues which affect us they chose to spend over ten million dollars on manipulative negativity

A further comment is that despite the negative press the minor parties and independents are subject to, they've actually been important in holding career politicians to account. (... and bringing important issues to our attention such as #dataretention  and the #tpp   which have had precious little coverage from the major parties.)

Check out theyvoteforyou.org.au to see where your representative in parliament stands on particular issues. I'm disappointed (but not surprised) to see what mine is in favour of.
