    OLI olivers, the godless commo hippy health food truckstop café company?.

    I only mentioned them recently as a measureable indicator of how their left claim to hate Maccas, and would always buy organic free trade non-gmo sugar free gluten free if it was available, but actually in the real world just pull in for a cheeseburger and coke.

    Bought into olivers on the sell down and sold out yesterday, on the basis that it had bounced back too fast, because part of the cash coming was from the old business model of being part property developer, buying a site, building an olivers on it , then monetising the increase in value.

    Redoing olivers into a profit focus capitalist business, robots, A.I. and all will take capital, reckon the property developer thing will halt for a year or so. sitting on a few left from the trade to wait for the capital raising they will probably need to reboot.

  14. Shy Ted

    In the olden days I moved from normal ciggies to Disques Bleu (by Gauloises). Better than sex they were. Gave up one day and never looked back. 15 years later I was in a restaurant and someone at the next table was smoking one. It was hypnotic. I leaned over and asked him if they were DB, they were. Told him my story and he offered me one, accepted. Beautiful and nostalgic but got all the effects of my first ever ciggie, nauseous, head spinning, put it out. He said keep it which I did. Over the next few weeks I kept having another puff but could never get back into it. Same thing happened a year or two after with a Camel smoker. And on the rare occasions I go through duty free I’m strangely drawn to look for them. Weird. Everyone told me I was stinkybreath but only ever desired 2 or 3 a day which was down from about 10 of the brand ones.

  15. Senile Old Guy

    An older, white man then made a point about the treatment of Aboriginal people by Australia’s British colonial rulers during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. ‘It’s a culture that’s survived centuries of pretty average treatment,’ he said.

    …mostly by Aboriginals on other Aboriginals, something that continues today. (But don’t talk about that; or about what happens in mostly/exclusively Aboriginal camps.)

    Typical bashing of white men, which is now a national past time by anyone not in that category.

    Rae wasn’t giving an opposing view. It was torn between a overpowering urge to dismiss what you said, and the realisation that she couldn’t.

    She viscerally knows that this is your fault and the best she could muster up was analogous to “Well, your a pooh-pooh head”.

    Mother Lode. Try not to imagine you have some kind of literary ability. “Grigor and Beth” was easily your best work, albeit also fanciful nonsense. Beth has been trying to distance herself from it ever since.

    I think Barnaby not-a-polly Joyce will soon be in fact not a polly. The paid interview is likely to be the straw that breaks the camels back. Disendorsement by the Nats in New England will end his political career.

    He could probably take the seat as independent, not unlike Katter & co.
    Don’t think so.
    Joyce got a big leg up in the By Election because the Media was silent on his extra marital shenanigans, and voters didn’t want to see the Government fall.

    Katter has a long history in Leichhardt, and he’d pretty much repudiated the National Party by the time he ratted. He also has long standing links with the ALP and Unions
    I’d reckon the Nationals should disendorse Barney before he moves on them first, and just in case that $150,000 from Channel 7 turns out to be not quite on the up and up.

    Leftism really is a mental disease…. and it’s getting worse…

    London cyclists too white, male and middle class, says capital’s cycling chief in vow to tackle diversity ‘problem’

    Too few women and people from ethnic minority groups cycle in London and more must be done to promote diversity among a largely white, male and middle class biking community, the city’s walking and cycling commissioner has said.

    Grand schemes, such as the Cycle Superhighway network of partially-segregated routes linking the suburbs with the centre, are too often perceived as simply a way of getting “middle-aged men cycling faster around the city”, Will Norman acknowledged.

    He said he was considering setting diversity targets for London’s cycling population to ensure progress was achieved.
    [Ed: Hmmmm…. ‘Diversity targets’ to ‘ensure’ more non-white, non-male cyclists…. Peak fucking Leftism approaching…]

    Black, Asian and minority ethnic groups account for about 15 per cent of the city’s cycle trips – around two-thirds less than Transport for London estimates it could be.

    Speaking to The Independent, Mr Norman, whose job it is to deliver on Sadiq Khan’s pledge to make walking and cycling safer and easier in the capital, said: “There is a problem with cycling and the way it is perceived of getting middle-aged men cycling faster around the city, which is not the objective at all. It touches on something which is a real challenge for London cycling, which is diversity.”

    Mr Norman, the capital’s first cycling commissioner, said he wanted to tackle the “gender divide” among cyclists that had spawned the term middle-aged men in lycra – or Mamils.

    He added: “Even when we have seen the growth in the number of cyclists, we haven’t seen that diversity. There are a number of reasons for that. One is that safety is paramount for getting different people from different walks of life cycling: older people, younger people, those from different backgrounds.”

    The mayor’s office has unveiled a number of projects it says will begin to address a lack of diversity, including cycle training courses, grants for community groups who do not typically cycle and promoting electric bikes, as well as expanded cycle routes. On Quietway 1, a new route linking Waterloo with Greenwich, the proportion of women has risen from 29 per cent to 35 per cent.

    RTWT if you really want to see more Leftist wankery over ‘diversity’… What I posted already was enough to give me brain cancer…

    Genetic research has shown that the Negritos have existed as a separate group for a long time, comparable to the Australoid and Southwest Pacific groups. This has often been interpreted to the effect that they are remnants of the original expansion from Africa some 70 kya.

    If we have ‘bishops’ and ‘princes’ in the bureaucracy, these surely must be the ‘priests’:

    It’s worth keeping an eye on research like this. If anybody’s going to reverse the global damage caused by our own self-destructive love of fossil fuels, it’ll be teams of scientists that are looking into alternative energy sources. If we’re very lucky, that might just save the world.

    I want to see what they are going to do about ticket vending machines where the ticket slot is to the left – easier for right handed people as they reach for the ticket with their left hand leaving their more precise right hand able to press buttons. Left handed people have to be near gymnasts to be able to access the same services.

    How much money has been lost pressing the wrong amount. How many broken pelvises. And worst – how many hurt feelings?

    There should be duplication of all utilities specifying if they are for right handed or left handed people.

    Raise awareness of left handed people. A new government slogan:

    Let’s be sinister!

    Trump’s Memorial Day speech at Arlington,

    General Dunford, Joint Chiefs, members of the Armed Forces, members of the Cabinet, members of Congress, and distinguished guests: Thank you for joining us on this solemn day of remembrance. We are gathered here on the sacred soil of Arlington National Cemetery to honor the lives and deeds of Americas greatest heroes: the men and women who laid down their lives for our freedom. Today, we pay tribute to their service, we mourn alongside their families, and we strive to be worthy of their sacrifice.

    The heroes who rest in these hallowed fields — in the cemeteries, battlefields, and burial grounds near and far — are drawn from the full tapestry of American life. They came from every generation, from towering cities and windswept prairies, from privilege and from poverty. They were generals and privates, captains and corporals, of every race, color, and of every creed. But they were all brothers and sisters in arms. And they were all united then, as they are united now forever, by their undying love of our great country. (Applause.)

    Theirs was a love more deep and more pure than most will ever know. It was a love that willed them up mountains, through deserts, across oceans, and into enemy camps and unknown dangers. They marched into hell so that America could know the blessings of peace. They died so that freedom could live.

    Americas legacy of service is exemplified by a World War II veteran who joins us today — Senator Bob Dole. (Applause.) Earlier this year, I was fortunate to present a very special award to Bob — the Congressional Gold Medal. (Applause.) Bob, thank you for honoring us with your presence, and thank you for your lifetime of service to our nation.

    Today, we remember your fallen comrades who never returned home from that great struggle for freedom.

    We are also proud to be in the company of another American hero — Navy veteran Ray Chavez. (Applause.) At 106 years of age — (applause) — and he was in the Oval Office two days ago, and he doesnt look a day over 60 — (laughter) — he’s the oldest living survivor of the attack on Pearl Harbor. (Applause.) What a guy. And, Ray, you are truly an inspiration to all who are here today and all of our great country. Thank you, Ray, for being with us. Thank you. (Applause.)

    Most importantly, we’re joined today by the families of the American heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice. We cannot imagine the depth of emotion that this day brings each year — the grief renewed, the memories re-lived, those last beautiful moments together cherished and always remembered. And you also feel that incredible pride — a pride shared by one really and truly grateful nation. (Applause.)

    To every parent who weeps for a child, to every child who mourns for a parent, and to every husband or wife whose heart has been torn in two: Today we ask God to comfort your pain, to ease your sorrow, and to wipe away your tears. This is a very special day. And today, our whole country thanks you, embraces you, and pledges to you: We will never forget our heroes. (Applause.)

    Joining us today is the family of Marine Lieutenant Colonel David Greene, who rests here at Arlington. (Applause.) Dave grew up in Upstate New York, dreaming of attending the United States Naval Academy. In 1982, that dream came true. Soon another dream came true when Dave met his eternal soulmate, Sarah, who is here with their two beautiful children, Jena and Wesley. (Applause.) He’s looking down on you right now. You know that, right? He’s looking down on you, and he’s so proud and happy.

    After 10 years of service as a Marine helicopter pilot, Dave left active duty to spend more time with the people who truly filled his heart. Those are the people you just met. But Sarah knew the man she married — she knew he couldnt live without serving. Couldnt do it. So she suggested he join the services in the form of reserves, and thats what he did.

    In January 2004, Dave deployed to Iraq. That summer, just a few weeks before he was scheduled to return home, he was called in to provide air support for ground troops who were in very serious danger. They were in very serious trouble. He immediately raced to the scene. As he covered his troops, he was shot by ground fire, giving up his life for his comrades and his country.

    Lieutenant Colonel Greene remains one of the highest-ranking Marines to have been killed in Iraq since 2003. But for him, it was never about rank or title. Like all of his fellow warriors, it was only about duty. He served to defend our flag and our freedom.

    And now his son Wesley, who is a senior at Liberty University, plans to follow in his fathers footsteps and join the military. (Applause.) Wesley, I just want to congratulate you and your entire family. Great, great family. Thank you very much, and thank you for being here with us. (Applause.) Thank you very much. Beautiful. You’re going to love the military. These are incredible people.

    We’re also honored to have with us today the family of Army Captain Mark Stubenhofer, and his wife Patty, and their children, Lauren, Justin, and Hope. (Applause.) Please. Thank you for being with us. Thank you very much. Such an honor.

    Mark grew up not far from here, in Springfield, Virginia. Every year, he visited these grounds and hoped to someday serve here as a member of that very, very famous Old Guard.

    In 2004, Mark deployed to Iraq for the second time. While he was there, Patty went into labor with their third child, and Mark was with her by phone when their beautiful baby girl was born. Together, they named her Hope.

    Just a few months later, Mark was on a mission near Baghdad when he was tragically slain by a snipers bullet.

    Today, Hope is 13 years old. Although she never had the chance to meet her great father, she can feel his love wrapped around her every single day. And when Patty puts her children to bed, and kisses them goodnight, she can see Marks legacy beaming back at her through their bright and glowing eyes. Thank you so much. (Applause.) Really beautiful. Thank you. You know that, right?

    Also joining us today is a very special friend: Seven-year-old Christian Jacobs, who is here with his mom Brittany.

    I met Christian exactly one year ago today. Last year, after the wreath-laying ceremony, Christian walked over to me with great confidence, shook my hand, looked me straight in the eye, and asked if I would like to meet his dad. He loved his dad — Marine Sergeant Christopher Jacobs, who died when Christian was just eight months old.

    Next, Christian, looking as sharp as you could look dressed in a beautiful Marine outfit — I’ve never seen a Marine look that good in my life, Christian. (Applause.) He wanted to look good, he told me, as a tribute to his father. And he led me to his dad’s grave, and we paid our respects together. It was a moment I will always remember.

    Christian, I want you to know that even though your father has left this world — he’s left it for the next — but he’s not gone. He’ll never be gone. Your dads love, courage, and strength live in you, Christian. And as you grow bigger and stronger, just like him, so too does your fathers incredible legacy. So thank you both. That’s so beautiful. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you. Thank you, Christian. Good to see you. He’s become my friend, I will tell you. Special young man.

    To every family member of the fallen, I want you to know that the legacy of those you lost does not fade with time, but grows only more powerful. Their legacy does not, like a voice in the distance, become a faint echo. But, instead, their legacy grows deeper, spreading further, touching more lives, reaching down through time and out across many generations. Through their sacrifice, your loved ones have achieved something very, very special: immortality.

    Today we also remember the more than 82,000 American servicemen and women who remain missing from wars and conflicts fought over the past century. We will never stop searching for them. (Applause.) And whenever possible, we will bring them home. We pledge to remember not just on Memorial Day. We will always remember them. We will remember them every day.

    Moments ago, I laid a wreath in tribute to those resting in honored glory. For more than 80 years, the Sentinels of the Old Guard have kept watch over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Serving in this elite unit is among the most prestigious honors in the United States military. While the rest of us sleep, while we go about our lives, through every minute, through every day, through freezing cold, scorching heat, and raging storms, they stand watch.

    Even when the Earth shook beneath their feet on 9/11, and smoke from the Pentagon darkened the sky above these tree-lined hills, here they remained, faithful at their post, eternal on guard. They never moved.

    The Sentinel always stands, because America never forgets its our heroes who make us who we are and who determine what we will be. (Applause.)

    Our fallen heroes have not only written our history — theyve shaped our destiny. They saved the lives of the men and women with whom they served. They cared for their families more than anything in the world. They love their families. They inspired their communities, uplifted their country, and provided the best example of courage, virtue, and valor the world will ever know. They fought and bled and died so that America would forever remain safe and strong and free.

    Each of the markers on that field — each of the names engraved in stone — teach us what it means to be loyal and faithful and proud and brave and righteous and true.

    That is why we come to this most sacred place. That is why we guard these grounds with absolute devotion. That is why we always will remember. Because here — on this soil, on these grounds, beneath those fields — lies the true source of American greatness, of American glory, and of American freedom.

    As long as we are blessed with patriots such as these, we shall forever remain one people, one family, and one nation under God. (Applause.)

    It’s been my great honor to be with you today. I want to thank you. May God bless the families of the fallen. May God bless the men and women who serve. And may God bless the United States of America — our great country. Thank you. (Applause.) Thank you very much.

    This is the biggest assault on industry super & the union movement that the LNP has ever launched.
    Coupled with the budget measures, it will really cost industry super & really cost the union movement.
    A note I read today says it will stop approx. $100mill dropping into AMP’s tin.
    If the cost to AMP is that much, the cost to industry super would be 5x that at least.

    Plenty of Union Members don’t vote Labor, but are happy to turn a blind eye to Union rorts because that Union membership is their guarantee of job security.
    If Labor can spin any Government action as an attack on people’s rights at work, then those Liberal voting Unionists are more likely to vote Shorten in and keep their job, rather than the alternative.

    It happened with Howard and WorkChoices, and it’ll happen again if Turnbull allows himself to be dragged down that path.

    From the piece linked above:

    A NEW STUDY HAS revealed how indigenous Australians coped with the last Ice Age, roughly 20,000 years ago. The findings, published recently in The Journal of Archaeological Science, suggest that about 21,000 years ago, almost all people in modern-day Australia migrated into smaller areas, abandoning as much as 80 per cent of the continent.

    Abandoning 80% of your living space does not provide much evidence of “coping”. They “coped” by moving to the few places where a primitive culture could survive.

    In Europe:

    “It seems that the hunter-gatherers of Europe braved the worst of the ice age during the last glacial maximum but were then replaced when the ice age had begun to subside.” Adam Powell, senior author, said: “Our model suggests that during this period of climatic upheaval, the descendants of the hunter-gatherers who survived through the Last Glacial Maximum were largely replaced by a population from another source.”

    They “coped” by building shelters and making clothes out of animal skin and fur, with extensive use of fire.

    I haven’t heard any union bashing today.

    What’s industry super going to do?
    What’s the union movement going to do?

    PS, for those who don’t know, the comm on a TPD insurance is multiples of the fee rip on a super fund.

    Unions typically clip the ticket on all their members TPD insurance policies that invest via industry super.

    Sonia Kruger fails to have racial vilification complaint thrown out
    ASHLEIGH GLEESON, Court Reporter, The Daily Telegraph
    an hour ago
    Subscriber only
    TODAY Extra and The Voice host Sonia Kruger has failed to have a racial vilification complaint made against her dismissed nearly two years after she sparked a social media storm for agreeing Australian borders should be closed to Muslims.

    The matter will now proceed for directions next month after the Civil and Administrative Tribunal today refused the Nine Network’s application to have the complaint dismissed without hearing.

    The complaint has been made by Sam Ekermawi, a Muslim living in Australia, who said the Nine Network had vilified “ethnic Muslim Australians”.

    The tribunal heard evidence he has been involved in 32 hearings before courts and tribunals — 22 them related to vilification complaints.

    In July 2016 Kruger said she agreed with the proposition Australian borders should be closed to Muslims while discussing a newspaper article written by News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt on a “Mixed Grill” segment of The Today Show.

    “I mean, personally, I think Andrew Bolt has a point here, that there is a correlation between the number of people who, you know, are Muslim in a country and the number of terrorist attacks,” she said on the show.

    “Now I have a lot of very good friends who are Muslim, who are peace-loving who are beautiful people, but there are fanatics.

    “…. Personally I would like to see it stopped now for Australia. Because I want to feel safe, as all of our citizens do, when they go out to celebrate Australia Day.”

    In an email to the Anti-Discrimination Board of NSW in March last year Ekermawi wrote: “Kruger wants borders closed to Muslims, in that she’s implying that they are terrorists (sic) to dehumanise them.”

    “Why not worried about other Nations children, who’s daily, been exposed to crimes of war and crimes against humanities? (sic).”

    Under the Anti-Discrimination Act it is unlawful for a person, by a public act, to incite hatred, serious contempt or severe ridicule of a person or people on the ground of race.

  111. stackja

    The Nine Network had applied to have Ekermawi’s complaint dismissed by submitting the broadcast was a discussion about Muslim religion and migration, not about “race”.

    It was also submitted he hadn’t identified critical elements of his own case such as how the broadcaster incites hatred, serious ridicule or serious contempt.

    Channel 9 and Kruger also submitted that given Ekermawi’s “track record” with vilification complaints it would be an abuse of the tribunal’s processes to allow the complaint to proceed.

    However NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal deputy president Nancy Hennessy refused the application.

    “A complaint should not be summarily dismissed except in a very clear case,” she said.

    The matter is listed for directions on June 19.

  112. Dr Faustus

    Get them nervous about their job security, and, hey presto, Bill Shorten’s the P.M., and John Setka’s running Australia.

    So, this must be the cunning plan behind Mz McManus’s TV ads.

    That, and the fact that most of the people who are happy to trade away full time entitlements for 25%-35% casual loading on the award rate are not union members.

  113. Threats of Murder Go Unpunished at Providence College:

    Let’s go over this again. A student is made the object of universal loathing, at a supposedly Catholic college, for a poster that did nothing but affirm that the sun rises in the east, two and two are four, and it takes a man and a woman to make a marriage. These are my words: his poster was entirely affirmative, condemned nobody, and employed not one satirical word or glance. He is harassed in his dormitory and threatened with rape. The president will not meet with him or his father. Then at the senior dance he is harassed and threatened with murder. The college does a big nothing. When, forty hours later, he accuses the dean of student affairs of being indifferent to the threat, she accuses him instead and threatens to bar him from graduation, the same graduation where all of the offending students, including Student 1 and Student 2, would be marching without consequence.

    There is only one explanation for all of this. The people in charge of Providence College do not actually believe that it takes a man and a woman to make a marriage. So anybody who upholds the truth publicly ought to pay. That is why I am told they are backing, to be the new Dean of Diversity and Inclusion, a woman who boasts that she left her husband, whom she says she loved, to carry on sexual affairs with other women. She is now “married” as a lesbian.

  114. Rae

    What about the death benefit if the person with a few super fund membership dies?

    Only one pays out.

    I presume that is just your guess, and the same guesswork applies to your statement about payouts to a member in 3 or 4 funds. Unless you can demonstrate that it is actually so.

    After that the bakers stopped, no one knows why.

  116. feelthebern

    In my opinion, there should be one default super fund.
    The Future Fund.
    The fee rip on the Future Fund would make an industry super fund blush.
    As long as punters can redeem with zero exit fees.

    It would stop the big business, big union rorts to get their hands on peoples super.

    tpd and life policies do not reduce due to other policies.

    What is reduced from income protection payments are payments received from other sources, such as centrelink or workers comp weekly payments.

    You can have 5 tpd policies and get 5 payouts – done these claims myself and no set off as each is a separate contract of insurance.

    You can have multiple life insurance policies.

    Some rules on disclosure, but no rule against multiple policies.

    You cannot over insure your income – eg 2 income protection policies over same period. However, you can have 2 policies with different preclusion periods. EG super one starts immediately and goes 2 years, then s private one with a 2 year waiting period which kicks in once super policy finishes.

    The matter will now proceed for directions next month after the Civil and Administrative Tribunal today refused the Nine Network’s application to have the complaint dismissed without hearing.

    The complaint has been made by Sam Ekermawi, a Muslim living in Australia, who said the Nine Network had vilified “ethnic Muslim Australians”.

    The tribunal heard evidence he has been involved in 32 hearings before courts and tribunals — 22 them related to vilification complaints.

    Woman who crushed pills into partner’s mashed potato has sentence reduced
    The Daily Telegraph
    May 29, 2018 1:47pm
    Subscriber only
    A NSW woman who laced her de facto partner’s mashed potato with pills to “stupefy” him so her significantly older lover could then kill him has had her sentence reduced by almost three years.

    Sarah Renea Tarrant, 29, was previously found guilty of the manslaughter of Alois Rez at Dubbo in 2013 and sentenced to 10 years and eight months in jail with a non-parole period of eight years, while her 51-year-old lover at the time Raymond Roff was separately sentenced for Mr Rez’s murder.

    The NSW Criminal Court of Appeal in February ruled a new sentence be imposed after Tarrant argued the sentencing judge’s conduct gave rise to a reasonable apprehension of bias against her.

    In the NSW Supreme Court today, Justice Peter Johnson sentenced the 29-year-old to a maximum eight years in jail with a non-parole period of five years, taking into account her early guilty plea and assistance to authorities and backdated to November 2015.

    A lonely, law-abiding widower, Roff’s passion for a younger woman led him to murder her partner.

    After Tarrant crushed sleeping tablets into her partner’s mashed potato, her besotted lover killed him and dumped his body.

    Roff and Tarrant began their passionate affair in March 2013, writing each other love letters in which he declared he wanted to marry her and promised to be a good husband.

    Mr Rez, a family friend of Roff, had been in a relationship with Tarrant since she was 15 but she was unhappy, saying he demeaned and criticised her, and was lazy and demanding.

    In May 2013, she told Roff she wanted Mr Rez “gone”.

    On the fateful night, Tarrant mixed the sleeping tablets in Mr Rez’s mashed potato, keeping Roff informed by texts on his condition before he came to the house about 2am and killed the sleeping man by unknown means — dumping his body which has never been found.

    “This terrible crime was an extraordinary exception to everything about the offender’s character and conduct up to that date,” Justice Desmond Fagan said after sentencing Roff.

    “His descent to murder is directly attributable to his infatuation with this young woman.”

    Cohenite, seriously stop embarrassing the site. There’s information on the idiot.

    A SYDNEY father who claims shockjock Alan Jones racially vilified Sydney’s Muslims three days before the Cronulla riots in 2005, is facing bankruptcy.

    Sam Ekermawi, of Moorebank, took legal action against Alan Jones and 2GB after hearing Mr Jones’ comments on his breakfast program on 2GB on December 8, 2005.

    Mr Ekermawi first lodged his complaint with the Anti-Discrimination Board in 2005, and seven years later he is still waiting for it to be heard in the ADT.

    Documents filed with the Federal Magistrates Court in Sydney show that 2GB’s parent company Harbour Radio obtained a bankruptcy notice on November 26.

    The notice was served on Mr Ekermawi on December 5.

    The Nine Network is also a creditor, according to documents filed with the court.

    On Christmas Eve Mr Ekermawi rushed to the Federal Magistrates Court to obtain an extension of time to comply with the bankruptcy notice.

    The extension runs out today. Mr Ekermawi and his lawyer are due in court this morning.

    The debt is believed to be an unpaid legal bill Mr Ekermawi is required to pay before his case can continue.

    Mr Ekermawi did not respond to emails sent four days ago.

    Why would the radio firm obtain a bankruptcy notice against him? Is it to do with legal fees being awarded him? Hope so, but it’s not clear in the piece.

    Women are making history at the Stratford Festival by taking on male lead roles usually reserved for men

    The only other Shakespearean production on the Festival Theatre stage will see Seana McKenna cast as Julius Caesar beginning in August. In this case, she’ll be playing him as a man. The actors playing Cassius and Mark Anthony are also women.

    McKenna has been a trailblazer in unlocking male roles for female actors, but this is also her first chance to play a lead male role on Stratford’s main stage. She played Richard II in 2011 on the smaller third stage at Stratford and also recently played Lear in Toronto.

    She said it’s both a smart way to increase roles for women in a classical repertory theatre company, and an important way to stay relevant.

    It’s been swirling around in my head all after noon, as I don’t get the rationale in an initial coin offering. Firms are making coin offerings and receiving cash/ legal tender for it. Doesn’t it make the whole the trade irrational? If the firm making the ICO is receiving cash, it means they will happily exchange crypto for the real McCoy(the legal tender currency). Doesn’t that signal to the investor that it’s not a great bet? What am I missing here?

    Two bullshit lines from “The Great Super Swindle” pumped by the Productivity Commission and trotted out in the MSM today …
    (1) Differential fund performance equates to fee-stripping. The graphic in the Oz compared “sub-par” funds with the single best performing fund and concluded that this represents funds “ripped off” from members. Firstly, there will always be a spread of performance, even within what purports to be “balanced” investment options. They also conveniently chose the ten year period post GFC which has shown high “growth” in equities but stagnant cash yields. If Person A had 10% more in cash whilst Person B had 10% more in US equities (but both still within the “balanced” spectrum), Person B would have killed it, but these may have been conscious and logical choices made by both investors. Also, much of the equities “growth” since 2008 was, in fact, a recovery of 2007/08 losses, not growth per se.
    (2) Default funds are a conspiracy by corporate Australia to rip off wukkers. Much was made in media reports of “management” tying people into default funds, implying that the bosses were working hand in glove with Big Banking to screw the workers. The truth is that most people with access to retail funds as a default have freedom of choice of fund guaranteed by legislation. As a footnote to one TV report this was mentioned as an aside … “well, they can switch funds, but most don’t” … FMD. Of course, the biggest scams in mandated default funds are industry funds mandated by EBA which cannot be opted out of. The only mention I saw of this anywhere today was in the AFR. Minister for Pickpocketing (Msss Kelly O’Toaster) had ten minutes on Channel Nein but failed to mention it.

    Not-for-profit group to manage 85,000 hectares of Murray-Darling floodplain
    Green groups welcome awarding of Nimmie-Caira tender to the Nature Conservancy

    A consortium led by not-for-profit group the Nature Conservancy has been chosen to take over the future stewardship of Nimmie-Caira – 85,000 hectares of internationally significant Murrumbidgee floodplain in southern New South Wales.

    The move, one of the most ambitious experiments in private management of land for environmental purposes, has been welcomed by environment groups.

    The choice of the Nature Conservancy, means that priority will be given to managing the high-value wetlands on the property near Balranald, and giving access to the local Nari Nari people.

    The NSW minister for industry and water, Niall Blair, confirmed the tender outcome on Tuesday.

    In 2013 about 19 properties and their water rights were bought for $180m by the commonwealth under the Murray-Darling basin plan in order to return water for environmental flows to the river system.

    The 380GL of water entitlements were transferred to the commonwealth to help “bridge the gap” in meeting the targets set under the basin plan. This took the pressure off buybacks from farmers in the Murrumbidgee region.

    The land was transferred to the NSW government, which held a tender to determine who should manage the land. The process of picking a group to manage the vast property has been slow, raising doubts about the project and whether it would deliver the vaunted environmental benefits.

    Locals feared that some consortiums would want to return the property to grazing, or perhaps even intensive agriculture such as cotton.

    The Nature Conservancy is a global not-for-profit organisation that manages land donated to it by conservation-minded individuals and organisations.

    Important natural habitats on the property include extensive wetlands, river red gum forests, lakes and floodplains. It also includes habitats for threatened animals and plants.

    The Nari Nari tribal council will play a major role in the management of the property. The project will provide employment and an opportunity for reconnection to country.

    Meanwhile, the department is investigating allegations raised in the media that submarine contractors had been engaging other contractors without getting the department’s sign-off.

That has gotta change,” he said.

    Martin Luther King Jr’s son is a lefty (support we Democrat candidates) and this is not an authorised (legal) town and has 4 to 30 people living there, all on welfare.

    Warships generally have a life of 30 years.

    In that time they often have a major refit once, which brings them up to speed with changes in technology. They also have two minor refits, which fix things which are broken, and put in a few small improvements.

    The first HMAS Australia was sunk outside Sydney Heads after WWI, despite having done good service, due to naval strength limitations but also because she was regarded as being overtaken by new developments – despite having been launched in 1911.

    Post-WWII very few of the RAN major fleet units were kept operational, being steadily overhauled by new developments.

    Food assistance NGOs are basically fronts for child sex exploitation.. In other words ped support organizations.. How shockingly un-shocking is this.

    For six weeks in October and November 2001, a team of researchers toured refugee camps in the Mano River states of west Africa — Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — to examine the extent of sexual exploitation of children in refugee camps.

    They gathered children, mothers and healthcare workers together, often sitting under trees in the shade, and gently asked questions. Mostly, however, they listened and were appalled by what they heard. “We were shocked after the first assessment in Liberia,” recalled Christine Lipohar, a co-author of a report that has never been published but which has found a dozen international aid organisations are implicated in a sex-for-food scandal.

    “Then when we arrived in Guinea and started hearing more of the same thing, it was even more of a shock. I recall feeling a strong sense of shame that humanitarian staff were implicated in this way, given that I was a ‘member’ of that same group of people.”

    The Times has obtained a copy of the 84-page document produced by research teams working in refugee camps in west Africa for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Save the Children in 2001. It identified more than 40 aid organisations “whose workers are alleged to be in sexually exploitative relationships with refugee children”.

    Can’t you picture this goose now.

    Given that mUnty is the only one anyone has actually seen in public (via JC and that infamour golf photo), can the other two actually be verified?

    After an employee made the perfectly understandable decision to call police about two loitering black men, an extravagantly apologetic Starbucks has quickly transitioned to a social justice organisation. Their stores are also now considered flop-houses for deros and drug addicts.

    Starbucks, trying to put to rest an outcry over the arrest of two black men at one of its stores, is closing more than 8,000 stores for an afternoon of anti-bias training, a strategy some believe can keep racism at bay.

    After the arrests in Philadelphia last month, the coffee chain’s leaders apologized and met with the two men, but also reached out to activists and experts in bias training to put together a curriculum for its 175,000 workers.

    That has put a spotlight on the little-known world of “unconscious bias training,” which is used by many corporations, police departments and other organizations to help address racism in the workplace. The training is typically designed to get people to open up about implicit biases and stereotypes in encountering people of color, gender or other identities.

    The Perception Institute, a consortium of researchers consulting with Starbucks, defines implicit bias as attitudes — positive or negative — or stereotypes someone has toward a person or group without being conscious of it. A common example, according to some of its studies, is a tendency for white people to unknowingly associate black people with criminal behavior.

    LOL. I wonder why they make that association.

    It’s worse. No one has told her she lost in 2016.

    Poor thing has no idea.

    85000 hectares is 850 square kilometres, in one chunk would be a square 29 kilometres by 29 kilometres.

    Once worth 180 million dollars as farmland, now totally cleared of Tory voters and turned over to wild pigs and foxes and feral cats.

    Any shire rates paid on it now?.

    Their clearances, not just for the Highlands anymore.

    The plot thickens:

    A Chinese study uncovers a link between abortions and the incidence of breast cancer, with multiple abortions increasing the risk.

    The broad consensus among Western medical scientists is that no such link exists, although the link itself is refusing to comply with their assurances.

    What is a broad consensus of Western scientists worth these days, anyone?

    One suspects that, given enough time and data, the consensus will eventually collapse, after how many diagnoses & deaths?

    not a tip, because Africa will Win Again here eventually.

    Just saying that IHS has oil and gas leases in good standing in Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwe government hasn’t stolen the leases or begun to burn the company’s money in court.

    In zimbostralias victoriastan however, companies with oil and gas leases had their property stolen overnight by their yarragrad government, without compensation, because of godless commo hippy ideology.
    Fight to the death in court until exhausted if you don’t like it, because in zimbostralia, resistance to the will of the State is useless. Compared to Zimbabwe where rule of oil and gas law still works.

    Comrades.

    Absolutely nothing.
    On abortion and contraception, “Western scientists” leap into action to declare that both are not only harmless but better than vegetables and jogging.

    ‘who shouted “Allahu Akbar”‘ during cafe attack in Liege, Belgium

    ….aaaaaaaaaaaand it’s Muslims…. again…

    After killing the three victims the shooter fled and took a woman hostage at a high school before being shot by police

    Two police officers and a passer-by have been shot dead by a gunman who witnesses claim shouted “Allahu Akbar” during a cafe attack in Belgium.

    After killing the three victims the shooter fled and took a woman hostage at a high school before being shot by police.

    The officers and the passer-by were gunned down at Cafe des Augustins in Liege city centre at about 10.30am on Tuesday.

    Two other police officers were wounded.

    Witnesses said the gunman was armed with two weapons and shouted “Allahu Akbar” as he carried out the attack, VTM reported.

    The gunman fled and took a female cleaner hostage at the Athenee de Waha high school.

    We’ll be bringing you the very latest updates, pictures and video on this breaking news story.

    sudden poleward shift in westerly winds encircling Antarctica. The shifting winds changed ocean circulation and ventilation in the deep ocean, affecting glaciers across the southern hemisphere.

    The study postulates that volcanic eruptions played a part in ending the glacial period and causing the wind shift. One problem is the eruptions and wind shifts must occur regularly every 100000 years or so to cause the regular interglacials such as we are enjoying now:

    https://wattsupwiththat.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/clip_image016.jpg

    The other problem is this interglacial began when the Younger Dryas finished about 11500 years ago whereas the study says the interglacial began about 17000 years ago.

    One thing the current climate is about as good as it gets on this lump of rock which only makes alarmism all the more stupid.
