Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych440,234On 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.

This shot is now getting closer to what it was like down at the pier yesterday - lashing rain and extremely blustery wind. Sounds like there's more on the way. Time to dig out the woollies and tether myself to something safe if I go out!

Teacher bashing is such a common pass-time that it's unusual to find an article in the msm which celebrates their many skills. We rarely get to see experts in action using their talents, or realise how these can impact on many others, seemingly removed from the situation.

It's appalling that our society devalues teachers so blatantly.  The system is a mess, from the "if you can't do anything else, become a teacher" attitude, to being obliged to spend too much time on pointless testing,  gathering stats, filling out forms and other administrivia. This ensures that many leave what should be a rewarding and respected profession, within 5 or so years of beginning teaching.

A good way to protest and not difficult to do if you've had a gut full of the major parties. 

via +Jon O'Hare 

Okay, here’s the deal.  For every primary vote they get, each candidate in the upcoming federal election will be awarded about $2.60.

http://www.aec.gov.au/parties_and_representatives/public_funding/Current_Funding_Rate.htm

The LNP and ALP have collectively agreed to:
 • collect your metadata and spy on every Australian citizen,
 • endorse unconventional gas extraction,
 • subsidise the coal and gas industries,
 • spend millions of dollars on faulty strike fighters,
 • maintain offshore detention centres,
 • prevent the mandatory reporting of child abuse in detention centres,
 • allow huge multinational companies to pay zero tax on multi-billion dollar profits,
 • slash the renewable energy target,
 • put anyone who reported a crime committed in a detention centre in prison,
 • sign away Australian workers rights in ChAFTA and the TPP,
 • postpone and play politics with marriage equality,
 • avoid meaningful consultation with the first nations regarding a treaty,
 • take any meaningful steps towards true drug law reform,
 • refused a national independent commission against corruption (ICAC),
 • and much, much more.

So if you endorse this behaviour and believe this is the way you expect government to run our country, by all means vote for them.  But for a great many Australians, this makes us angry, and we’d like to punish them for this appalling behaviour.  

You may not believe that any other party could form government in Australia so you’re going to vote for one of these parties anyway.  But do they deserve the monetary reward for your vote?  I don’t think so.  So put your preferred party second.  If you still like the idea of small government for business, by all means, vote for the LNP, but vote [2] and put a minor party or independent that most closely represents your values [1]st.  If you think this country would be served best by a Labor government, vote [2] for the ALP and give a minor party or independent your number [1] and your $2.60.  

Personally, I’d like to see your number [1] go to The Greens who have stood on the other side of the chamber on all the issues listed above.  They have yet to backflip on any of the issues they stand for and flatly refuse to receive any funding from the coal and gas industries.  A [1] for The Greens would send the strongest message to the major parties that they need to pick their act up and stop playing games with the lives and livelihoods of Australians.  

That would properly teach them a lesson.  Vote [2] for your preferred major party and give your $2.60 to The Greens, a minor party or independent instead.  One of the majors will still win and form government, but this will hit their Party where it hurts.___A good way to protest and not difficult to do if you've had a gut full of the major parties.

I’ve observed fellow journalists, the same ones who made trailer-park tornado survivors famous for a loose grip on the past participle, edit dumb-sounding quotes by city commissioners to suit the speaker’s stature. And while I took the education I wasn’t given through libraries, encyclopedias and my former stepfather’s New Yorker subscription, plenty of members of the middle and upper classes refuse or lack the ability to seize the opportunities handed them. It can be useful to acknowledge the cultural forces that carve us, or edifying to indulge in the tropes of our assigned narratives, but true distinctions of character, intelligence, talent and skill exist at the level of the individual, not of the class – or the ethnicity, the gender, the sexual orientation, the religion and so on. To claim otherwise, as we’ve discovered across time and countless persecutions of our own doing, is at best an insult and at worst an excuse for enslavement and genocide."

Some lessons for Hunt and his coal besotted mates:
Know what you're talking about before you shoot off at the mouth. 
Get your facts straight. 
Have the decency to respect people who know what they're talking about.
Quote them accurately.

Caught cherry-picking documentaries...};-) "Enamoured by stunning footage in David Attenborough’s latest documentary series, the Australian environment minister, Greg Hunt, took it as proof that the Great Barrier Reef remained an untouched beauty.

But he might have been better off waiting to see the whole series before commenting.

“The key point that I had from seeing the first of the three parts is that, clearly, the world’s Great Barrier Reef is still the world’s Great Barrier Reef,” Hunt told the Courier Mail.
[...]
Had he watched the full series, however, he would have seen footage of coral bleaching and heard Attenborough describe, in the final part of the documentary, how “the Great Barrier Reef is in grave danger”.
[...]
The producer of the Great Barrier Reef series, Anthony Geffen, responded to Hunt’s comments, encouraging him to “watch the series, you know”.

“It’s like watching one of those Hollywood movies when everybody’s happy at the front and everybody’s dead at the end, and saying, ‘Well I think the family was really happy and everybody’s really good’, but you haven’t got to the end of the movie, where his whole family is lying on the floor dead,” Geffen told Guardian Australia."___Some lessons for Hunt and his coal besotted mates:

Heart wrenching.

Real conspiracies eventually unravel. "For years the families of victims of the Hillsborough stadium disaster have been searching for justice, looking to uncover a conspiracy to conceal the truth. Now new inquests have concluded the 96 victims were unlawfully killed.

Tapping phones. Doctoring evidence. Intimidating witnesses.

Not the sort of thing you expect of the authorities in modern day Britain. But ask the families of those who died at Hillsborough, and they'll tell you that's exactly what has happened.

For years they weren't believed. Even treated as paranoid.

There have been inquiries, investigations and inquests, but for more than a quarter of a century the families have fought to separate truth from myth."___Heart wrenching.

We have alternatives to coal, and don't need to put all our eggs in the one energy basket. Yet, that's what the current LNP government wants to do, deliberately overlooking the many negative aspects of coal extraction and burning, while talking up manufactured negatives of renewable, sustainable energy options, and studiously overlooking the job opportunities.

The US is such a disaster that our govt thinks it's a great idea to follow their failed ideas ... so stupid it makes your head hurt.

Sign the GetUp! petition to defend our Medicare:

Leaked - The Turnbull government has 'well-advanced' plans to privatise the delivery of Medicare benefits, including for-profit corporations overseeing eligibility requirements for care. 

Trussed up as an endeavour to improve efficiency, these changes represent a fundamental rethink of our world-class universal healthcare system. 

This extreme plan would place $50 billion in services under corporate control – across Medicare, pharmaceutical and aged-care benefits – and is tipped to be a key feature of the May budget. 

Will you let the Turnbull Government know that Australia is ready to defend Medicare by adding your name to the petition now?

These privatisation plans would be the first time for-profit corporations has delivered a national health service subsidised by government. They would bring us one step closer to a profit-driven, American-style system that denies people access to life-saving healthcare because they can't afford it.

Sign the Petition here:

Really FB? - Older aboriginal women at a ceremony is offensive? In my mind removing this post is not only sexist and racist it's ageist as well. Perhaps if they were young white women with pert breasts, implants, and other enhanced body parts, wearing minimal clothing, in awkward poses with phallic objects to encourage titillation and sexual objectification it'd be welcomed :/

"Witches, you are NOT fucking going to believe this post.
Here's Day 68 AND Day 69 of the 366 Days of Aussie Patriarchy.
68/69. If there's a definition of patriarchy, witches, this is it. Facebook is the company that just two days ago urged women to have a wonderful IWD. The page sweetly offering us rainbow flags and banners opposing same-sex marriage. We're sure those in charge at Facebook would claim they're not sexist, or racist.

The page sweetly offering us rainbow flags and banners opposing same-sex marriage. We're sure those in charge at Facebook would claim they're not sexist, or racist. Yet by removing our post today, Facebook has just proved it is as sexist, racist, and patriarchal as fuck.
Last night we published Day 68 of the 366 Days of Patriarchy. Today, we received notification that the post had been removed, and one of our Admins banned. For - you really are NOT going to freaking believe this - nudity. People have actually reported the pic on the post for nudity. Nudity. Christ on a Crumpet - WTAF!!
First, the pic had nothing to do with us - it was the link pic from the first article in the post, from New Matilda. Apparently Black Feminist Ranter - Celeste Liddle (author of the piece) has also been locked out of her account, yet the post still appears on other pages. The pic was taken by Chris Graham in 2010, and depicts two women from the Central Australian community of Ampilatwatja performing at a public ceremony in 2010 to protest against the Northern Territory intervention. It's beautiful, historical and emotional, and to claim it's "nudity" is not less than obscene.
Please - on our behalf - complain to Facebook about this. It may not do much good, but what else can witches do?
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/268228883256323
Please share this post. Spread the word that Facebook allows appalling sexual pics of women all over the fucking shop, but a beautiful, cultural and important pic is taken down.
Facebook, you're as popular as a Pollywaffle in a swimming pool with witches right now.
This post may disappear again in a heartbeat. Stay tuned, and grip your broomsticks a little tighter. We witches obviously still have a long way to go."

You know the election is looming when the lies, discrediting, misinformation, snarky comments and sidelining begin in earnest. 

No wonder so many people are turned off politics and politicians when this is an example of the pathetic, scummy depths they'll willingly stoop to. FFS - grow up and act like adults - Australia is worth so much more than this moronic level of garbage posing as information.

Labor must be feeling really threatened by the Greens. They're now claiming the Greens are pimping Liberal. Because of this!!!

Moving Out Cleans – www.movingoutcleans.co 
Ms Cooney operates online bond cleaning businesses that offer bond cleaning services to consumers in capital cities around Australia.

Since 2012, NSW Fair Trading has received more than 80 complaints from consumers about businesses controlled by Ms Cooney.

The complaints relate to businesses accepting payment for cleaning services and then failing to supply those services.

Consumers have often been unable to contact the business they dealt with or Ms Cooney or obtain a full refund.

The average amount paid and lost by a consumer is more than $300. Typically, clients are renters vacating a property, requiring cleaning by a specific date in order to have their rental bond returned.

As a result, the detriment suffered is often the money paid to Ms Cooney as well as the cost of obtaining an alternative cleaner on short notice and may involve the loss of their rental bond.

Ms Cooney is regularly unresponsive to contact by consumers. When complaints and negative online reviews accumulate, she often shuts down the trading entity and its website.

On occasions where she provides a response, she commonly disputes the consumer’s claims and only provides a partial refund, charging a cancellation fee of $250 if the consumer does not reschedule within 72 hours.

The Commissioner said it was in the public interest for NSW Fair Trading to issue a public warning under section 86A of the Fair Trading Act 1987.

Ms Cooney is currently the subject of a public warning by Northern Territory Consumer Affairs http://www.consumeraffairs.nt.gov.au/NewsAndEvents/Documents/online_bond_cleaning_company.pdf as well as enforcement action by Queensland Fair Trading authorities.  

Fair Trading is currently investigating Ms Cooney with a view to potential prosecution.

Consumers who have dealt with Cassandra Nicole Cooney also known as Cassandra Voros or any of her businesses and who have not been provided services should contact NSW Fair Trading on 13 32 20 or visit www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au

The Commissioner also recommended anyone paying for bond cleaning should consider paying by credit card because of the charge-back protection it provides should there be a dispute concerning provision of service.___

Ankle biter "accidentally" shot his mum? Maybe they'd been having an argument and he was angry and it was deliberate? She'd apparently been boasting about his marksmanship so surely she'd know how accurate his aim is?
Will they ever learn? (rhetorical question)

A four-year-old boy has accidentally shot his mother in the back, leaving the passionately pro-gun woman seriously wounded and facing possible charges, Florida officials said.

Staunch gun advocate Jamie Gilt, 31, who just a day earlier had boasted online about her toddler's shooting prowess, was cruising down a highway with her son in the back when he shot her on Tuesday.

Assuming these figures are correct, Australia's performance under Labor was pretty impressive. "When the Coalition lost office in 2007, Australia was the 9th best performing economy in the world based on the IAREM global index. By 2013, when Labor were defeated, our economy was the best performing economy in the world. By 2015 we had slipped back to 9th place again.

The IAREM (Independent Australia Ranking for Economic Management) uses eight variables to assess economic performance namely, income, growth rate, median wealth, jobs, inflation, taxation, net government debt and economic freedom.

Primary sources for IAREM include the World Bank, the IMF, tradingeconomics.com with supplementary information from the CIA World Fact Book and Brookings."

"If you are a swinging voter would you, in the light of this government’s behaviour over the past 30 months, think that they deserve to be returned to power at a general election? Before you answer, consider the litany of broken promises wrapped up in the disastrous 2014 budget. Consider the resignations of 14 government ministers in less than three years. Consider their record on the economy, or more accurately, their lack of it. Most of all, consider the dysfunctional behaviour of Tony Abbott."
