    It’s hard to grasp just what a catastrophe this is, so I’ll preface by saying that each team is probably paying out $1 billion per year in salaries and costs. With that in mind read the story and look at the photos:

    NFL HELL: Several Stadiums Nearly Empty As Anthem Protest Backlash Rolls Into Week 7 (PHOTOS)

    If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. Stadiums were nearly empty in Week 6, as well.

    As it says in the story many of the people who did turn up probably had season tickets which cost huge money. So the final scale of the catastrophe will only become apparent when the next season ticket sales figures become known. Ugly is too nice a word.

    Ballet, what a surprise that it’s a nest of predators in tights. When it takes three hours of leaping about to establish that a swan is crook, you can only marvel that there is still time left in the day for tutu-lifting and codpiece coddling. A tax to discourage ballet would be a boon to courting swains who, early in many heterosexual relations, have to pretend they enjoy it.

    Show business, in all of its forms, has always been a cesspool. Indeed, some of the participants are attracted to it for precisely that reason – whether they be gay or straight, male or female, management or artists. I am much more sympathetic to the young gel working in a small (especially family) business where the boss and/or his relatives regard her as fair game.

    Johanna is not bothered by sexual harassment in the entertainment industry. She is “much more sympathetic” to people who abused in small business.

    Exactly!

    At one point during my research, I discovered a video of a would-be robber entering a Houston smoke shop, his purpose conveyed by the pistol that he leveled at the store clerk. But the robber was not the only armed person in the store. The security cameras show Raleigh, the store clerk, walking out from behind the counter, calmly raising his own gun and firing an accurate stream of bullets at the hapless robber. The wounded robber stumbles out, falls over the curb and eventually ends up under arrest.

    It is not just the defensive gun use that makes the video remarkable — it is Raleigh himself who evidences such a nonchalance that he never bothers to put down the cigarette that he is smoking. At the end, Raleigh, having protected his store, enthuses “Castle Doctrine, baby” — citing a law that allows a person to use force to defend a legally occupied place.

    It is an amazing story, though far from unique, but you simply won’t find many like it in mainstream media (I found it on Reddit).

    It’s not that media is suppressing stories intentionally. It’s that these stories don’t reflect their interests and beliefs.

    Girls falling undies spell

    WOMEN have been borrowing their partners’ jeans for years but now it seems they’re also rummaging through their loved ones’ top drawers.

    Nearly half of young women have said they like to borrow their partner’s underpants as they find them more comfortable than their own.

    Research from the UK reveals that among 2000 people aged between 18 and 24, 42 per cent of women had worn men’s underpants more than once in the past year.

    The study found that only 17 per cent of men in the same age group had borrowed their partner’s underwear.

    Fashion firm Style Compare, which conducted the survey, said that across all age groups, 14 per cent of couples had admitted sharing undies.

    A spokesman said: “Men benefit from designs that put support and comfort first.”

    Advanced manufacturing the way to go for Australia after Holden’s Elizabeth automotive plant closure in South Australia

    Valerina Changarathil, The Advertiser
    15 minutes ago

    THE closure of Holden’s Elizabeth plant last week is a sad moment, but a turning point for manufacturing in Australia, according to an international expert helping the nation transition to an advanced future.

    “It is significant because it will take us away from traditional manufacturing-related assembly and production and into the high-tech, high value research and development (pre-making) and services (post),” said Dr Jens Goennemann, managing director of the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, an industry-led organisation established through the Australian Government’s Industry Growth Centres initiative.

    The focus should now be on upskilling right through the value chain of manufacturing to identify “high-value” pre and post production areas across all sectors that could open up a global market of customers, said Dr Goennemann, who has previously worked with global giants Airbus Group and Daimler-Benz Aerospace.

    “We have already seen an existing auto components maker in Victoria working with a global customer.”

    Holden’s exit last week marked the end of almost a century of car making in Australia with direct job losses at Holden, Toyota and Ford estimated at 5000. Once key suppliers are considered, the real number could rise to 50,000.

    Dr Goennemann said companies would likely transition to other sectors like defence and could take up opportunities linked to the $89 billion worth of defence spend related to the construction of new submarines, frigates and other vessels, mostly in SA and WA.

    AMGC was already working with Dassault and BAE Systems in SA on “bringing SMEs on board” their separate digital shipyard projects Adelaide, he said.

    The AMGC will today also release a report showing that the Australian manufacturing industry is larger and more dynamic than currently estimated.

    “Only five per cent of firms drive 99 per cent of total manufacturing exports, 94 per cent of capital spending and 54 per cent of the sector’s entire research and development,” it will say.

    “About 80 per cent of Australian manufacturers could become more advanced by collaborating with researchers, increasing their information and communication technology (ICT) spend, introducing a new product-related service or by using patents to protect their ideas.”

    The Advanced Manufacturing: A New Definition for a New Era report also calls for a new ‘scorecard’ tool to track progress of companies (besides jobs, output and exports) and changing how the information is reported while also better targeting industry assistance.

    It analysed more than 3,000 global manufacturers to identify characteristics of companies pursuing advanced strategies.

    “Manufacturing is transforming, so we need a new definition to accurately measure who we are and where we need to go.

    “Australia’s manufacturing exports generate close to $9 billion every month so just imagine what the possibilities could be if we increased the number of firms contributing to economic output by even five or 10 ten per cent,” said Dr Goennemann.

    I never said that.

    Prove it or shut up.

    JC has already done so but here it is again:

    Show business, in all of its forms, has always been a cesspool. Indeed, some of the participants are attracted to it for precisely that reason – whether they be gay or straight, male or female, management or artists.

    I am much more sympathetic to the young gel working in a small (especially family) business where the boss and/or his relatives regard her as fair game. These girls are not prepared to do almost anything to achieve stardom, they are just being groped and otherwise importuned by creeps.

    The girls groped and sexually harrassed in show business are “prepared to do almost anything to achieve stardom”, so it is okay if they are Harvey Weinsteined.

    Senile, you’re drawing a pretty long bow. Johanna’s comment is reasonable, to presume the complete innocence of every Hollywood starlet in this is just stupid. If Weinstein wasn’t a spent force as a Hollywood producer they would all be keeping quiet.

    Show business, in all of its forms, has always been a cesspool.

    [1] People are merchandise (show business is a flesh trade).
    [2] Acting is about pretending to be something that you are not.
    [3] Story telling is about convincing people that something happened, when it did not.
    [4] There’s shedloads of money to be made.

    Put those together and you will undoubtedly find that now and then the greengrocer wants to squeeze the mangos, but lies about it afterwards.

    I feel sorry for the people who don’t figure that out quickly, but I’m sure that in many cases the potential of money and fame was sufficient incentive, and if you make the choice to swim in that cesspool well *shrug* what am I supposed to do? Is it smart to pass laws protecting people from themselves? Give them a paternalistic “nudge” or something? Come on, they are big boys and girls, not entirely stupid. They have agency. I’ve complained for years about Hollywood doing the scolding and finger shaking routine telling me what I should find sacred… I’ve never liked the smug self righteous bastards, but I’m not about to tell them what morality they should subscribe to, other than to request they leave me alone.

    Am I bothered by people getting ripped of by that? Yeah, it bothers me a bit.

    There’s sleazebags in every industry, false promises, taking liberties, power and dominance. That bothers me too.

    Try to catch a few of them… expect more to come along. Teach kids about incentives and warn them about the bad people they are very likely to meet.

    Fairy tales used to serve the latter function quite well from early childhood, but I suppose they are too full of stereotypes for progressive parents these days.

  28. calli

    It’s the old Hollywood trouts that give me the willies. They all knew, many probably had the hard word put on them. And said nothing.

    And now they’re posturing and signalling wildly, and because life isn’t a scripted fillum, where a nice editor takes out the dodgy bits, their hypocrisy can’t be hidden.

    Forget Weinstein – he’s a token scapegoat. The attitude to Polanski is all you need to know.

  29. JC

    RickW

    The old drunk reckons she was more sympathetic and then because of the late night benders forgets what she’s said and barks at the person politely correcting her or bringing to attention any of her incorrect information or inconsistencies.

    Senile’ s point is accurate.

    Here’s the issue that’s missing here. A starlet doesn’t have to enter a hotel room. Similarly a woman can leave the employ if a small business owner gets a little randy. Lastly a sexual assault is a criminal act and should be reported to the police. All this victimhood is a little sickening quite frankly.

    Last week Dutton’s plan to have immigrants actually speak English died in the Senate.

    Peter Dutton’s citizenship crackdown quietly killed off by the Senate (Thursday)

    The controversial crackdown would have imposed a values test, tough English language test and a four-year waiting period for permanent residents wanting to become Australian citizens.

    But the move was blocked by Labor, the Greens and the Nick Xenophon Team, who used their numbers in the Senate to impose a Wednesday night deadline for Mr Dutton to strike a deal.

    That failed to materialise, despite a last-ditch compromise offer from Mr Dutton to ditch the retrospective element of the plan and delay the start date to July 2018, and reduce the level of English required from “competent” to “modest”.

    I’d be interesting to compare whether the English fluency requirement for Indian call centres is tougher than the English fluency requirement for migrating to Australia.

    I don’t like the use of the word Semite to be used interchangeably with J3wish because the vast majority of Semites are not J3wish. It’s an accuracy thing.

    Strictly speaking, the terms Semite and Semitic come from linguistics, not ethnology and pertain to a family of languages.

    The term ‘antisemitic’ came into usage via a different route and has only ever pertained to anti-J3wish prejudice.

    All these terms came into English usage via the German, where they had these quite specific meanings, which may explain why they are not always understood or used correctly by English speakers. But then usage finally determines meaning over time.

    The term ‘antisemitic’ came into usage via a different route and has only ever pertained to anti-J3wish prejudice.

    When people make that Arabs are semites too claim, its usually part of a false claim that they are not being anti-semitic when they are being anti-semitic.

    The easiest way to solve that problem is to send all semites, arabs, j ews, goatfuckers etc back to the middle east and let them go on with their 3000 year conflict. Its not our problem and we shouldn’t be importing their conflict here.

    The alarm bells should have been ringing when the ALP kept calling the NBN “future proof”.

    These are the same people who believe a windmill can provide base load power.

    To Canberra now, and the NBN and the exorbitant cost of installing it around the country…

    LOL!
    I can’t wait for the same sort of crosses for the NDIS and the energy fiasco. The MSM makes snailmail seem fast.

    Well, only 1300 years ago my rellies appear to have migrated from goatfuckistan to France, where they settled for a lazy 300 years before helping out in the last successful invasion of England. 865 years later they sent a few reps to the land of sand, sin, sorrow and sore eyes. Now I would rather volunteer as an armed guard at J3wish schools than try that shit.

    I’d be interesting to compare whether the English fluency requirement for Indian call centres is tougher than the English fluency requirement for migrating to Australia.

    I think the answer is self evident, fluent in casual and technical conversations VS WTF is English? (In chosen goat herder dialect.)

    I was thinking that we should Terra Form Australia back to the way it was before the Aboriginals trashed the joint by setting everything on fire.
