    I’m really enjoying see the lefties in St Kilda being terrorised by African gangs.

    From candy, on the previous thread:

    “I thought Donald Trump saluting George Bush’s coffin was appropriate. The Bush family would appreciate it, is all that matters.

    Anyway, there has to be some gesture at a coffin, not just standing there. An actual physical gesture to finalise paying the respects. Melania Trump put hand on heart, as well. I thought it simple and appropriately done.”

    Back in the eighties, I was given the job of organising a visit to the US by the then Defence Minister, Kim Beazley.

    The US embassy loaned me a ‘protocol manual’ describing, with illustrations, how a visiting dignitary was expected to behave when visiting American sacred sites.

    Basically, they were expected to place their right hands over their hearts as a sign of respect. The illustrations in the manual showed how, and at what stage of the proceedings, this should be done.

    The illustrations involved – presumably – models, but for some reason these models all looked like corrupt and sleazy Latin American Caudillos.

    In the end – much to my relief – the Americans decided to upgrade the visit to some sort of special guest status and took over all the arrangements. The speculation was that they had picked Beazley as a future Prime Minister! y

  5. FMD, an (tautology alert) anti-semitic lefty has been fired from Usyd!

    A lifetime radical, Dr Anderson was convicted but later acquitted of the 1978 Hilton Hotel bombing in Sydney.

    So a State institution hired a terrorist to indoctrinate kids and has only just got around to getting rid of him because he is becoming too embarrassing.

    Dr Anderson attracted criticism from federal education ministers for his numerous trips to Syria and North Korea, where he expressed solidarity with their dictatorial regimes and condemned western imperialism and the United States.

    So, to repeat, the State, instead of stripping a domestic terrorist of the citizenship of the country he hates and sending him to North Korea, gives him a highly paid taxpayer funded gig at a top University.

    Of course the fuckstick is screaming about free speech now. And, lest you need reminding, Usyd routinely charges, censors or simply shuts down speakers promoting liberty and free markets, refused the Ramsey Western Heritage Centre and hosts an annual conference on Socialism.

    Lastly, if this were a lecturer “of the right” displaying a Swastika and defending people wearing ‘Death to Israel’ badges, the screams of “NAAAAAZI!” would be heard on the secret Nazi moon base. Yet, because the wanker is a lefty there isn’t so much as squeak.

    Which just goes to show that anti-semitism is so rife on the left that nobody even bothers calling it out.

    Gaia must like us.

    Resources Are Almost 5 Times as Abundant as They Were in 1980

    From the linked story:

    Humanity is enjoying a world of increasingly cheap and ever more abundant mineral, agricultural, forestry and energy resources reports a brilliant new study, the Simon Abundance Index. … They find in real price terms their basket of commodities decreased by an average of 36.3 percent between 1980 and 2017.

    That’s great, but their breakthrough insight is that, since 1980, global real hourly income rate per capita has grown by more than 80 percent, which means that the commodities that took 60 minutes of work to buy in 1980 now take only 21 minutes of labor to buy in 2017. As a result, the “time-price” of their basket of commodities has fallen by 64.7 percent.

    The SAI devised by Tupy and Pooley elegantly refutes the primitive zero-sum intuitions peddled by the likes of Ehrlich and his acolytes that afflict so much of popular and policy discourse with respect to population and resource availability trends.

    Numerous stories in the MSM today about Trump destroying the Earth; from Arnie, Barbra Streisand, Attenborough, the UN and other usual suspects. Somehow I think they are just as wrong as Ehrlich and his merry band of moping moochers.

    While clearly increasing fuel taxes to save the planet is a bit bag of stupid, I wonder how much of the rest was real reform?

    Is gas and electricity subsidized, or are the price increases to appease gaia?

    Smashing dinner last night at Huberts, in Bligh Street.

    I was intrigued to see that they had a stage to one side of the dining area over which hung the sign “Mr Creosote’s Stage”.

    I looked on Goolag and can only find one Mr Creosote.

    I assume therefore that the stage is named after someone who champions individual freedoms and responsibility, limited government and reduced waste – hence I could not see him on Goolag.

    Recently received from Cory Bernardi’s AC.

    That’s why I say the political fix is in. Labor and Liberal both know that they will swap sides inside the chamber but as long as it is kept between them, they’ll act to protect each other.

    It means we will have continuing failures no matter who forms government. Any differences between them will be on the margins lest they mess up the cosy duopoly.

    The result will be further erosion of your freedoms, bigger government, higher taxes and ballooning debt. Immigration will continue unchecked, the cost of living will continue to rise and our way of life will be forever changed.

    We can’t meekly accept that future for Australia. No matter how difficult the challenges we face, more government is not the solution. It just layers more problems on top of the existing ones. That’s because they don’t care about you, your family or the country. The major parties only care about themselves and how they can hang on to the reins of power.

    For the insiders, it’s a cosy little club. For the rest of us, it’s a dangerous protection racket.

    Pretty much says it all.

    And get this: Morrison has announced it will be a conscience vote for Liberals. That means the usual suspects will be free to vote against religious liberty while staying ‘true’ to the party. It should, of course, be a strictly whipped bloc vote.

    Liberals ban men from defending themselves in court …

    Domestic violence perpetrators will no longer be able to cross-examine their victims in court.

    Legislation passed federal parliament on Wednesday, with cabinet minister Michaelia Cash confirming the government would fund legal aid to represent those affected by the bill.

    The bill bans people who have been accused of violence against their partners from cross-examining them, making it a requirement for them to have a lawyer to instead conduct the questioning.

    Abusers no longer able to grill victims.

    The Australian of course means alleged domestic violence perpetrators and alleged abusers.
    And that points to the problem, doesn’t it?

    The legislation removes a right to self-defence on the premise that they are all guilty.

    The authoritarian instincts of abortion activists on display yet again, this time in Ireland:

    Parliament is getting close to passing a radical abortion bill that would legalize abortion for any reason up to 12 weeks of pregnancy and up to six months in a wide variety of circumstances. It would force taxpayers to pay for abortions and force Catholic hospitals to provide them. The bill also strictly limits conscience protections for medical professionals like them.

    Government leaders want medical workers to be ready to begin aborting unborn babies Jan. 1, 2019, but the medical community is pushing back.

    The Irish Examiner reports about 500 nurses and midwives signed a petition to Health Minister Simon Harris urging him to support better conscience protections. They said they are afraid of being forced out of their profession because they do not want to participate in the killing of unborn babies.

    https://www.lifenews.com/2018/12/04/500-nurses-and-midwives-slam-irish-government-after-learning-they-must-assist-in-abortions/

    I take forced to mean abide by the legislation. Catholic hospitals should refuse to provide abortions and suffer the consequences. Let the government mete out punishment and see how that plays out.

  52. thefrollickingmole

    Im unsure how that DV law is supposed to play out.

    Doing restraining orders it was still possible (but rare, really rare) for the accused to attend court and object to the placement (or some of the restrictions) of an order.

    This seems to be a bad law, obviously coming from some bad cases.

    ‘No matter how difficult the challenges we face, more government is not the solution. ‘

    Interestingly, the size of the Commonwealth Public Service (APS) appears to have declined slightly.

    The overall number of APS employees at 30 June 2018 was 150,594, a decrease of .9 percent since 30 June 2017

    The overall number of ‘ongoing’ – permanent – employees on the same date was 136,175, a decrease of .8 percent

    The overall number of ‘non-ongoing’ employees – temps – was 14,419, a decrease of 2.9 percent.

    In reality, these changes are meaningless. there are only 1501 less employees at 30 June 2018 than there were 12 months ago, and only 1080 less ‘ongoing’ employees. These are clearly normal, ongoing fluctuations in size that have nothing to do with government efforts, if any, to reduce the size of the Service.

    The numbers are still, however, the lowest they have been since the Howard regime Under RGR, the overall number of employees reached 167,331. Expect the next Labor regime to employ many more .

  55. .

    The APS should have 100,000 staff or less. It is a bloated canker on the body politic.

    The mainstream media must love being taxed into insolvency; or the ABC loves taxes for obvious reasons:

    The only mainstream media outlet that reported on this was The Australian.

    https://www.theaustraliantribune.com.au/2018/12/senator-leyonhjelms-bill-to-abolish-sin-taxes/

    Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm has introduced a bill to parliament to almost halve Commonwealth tax collections.

    The Lower Tax Bill 2018 reduces income tax to a flat rate of 20%, while lifting the tax-free threshold to $40,000, saving a typical worker more than $6,000 a year.

    ‘My bill abolishes fuel tax, delivering motorists $1 fuel for the first time in decades,’ Senator Leyonhjelm said. ‘The bill abolishes alcohol tax, saving 75 cents from a can or pot of beer, and $25 from a bottle of spirits. ‘The bill abolishes tobacco tax, taking $20 off the price of a pack of cigarettes.

    ‘The bill reduces the company tax rate to 20 per cent, protecting investment and jobs in Australia. ‘The bill abolishes Australia’s remaining array of bizarre ad hoc import tariffs, that will deliver cheaper goods as diverse as cars, clothes and towels, guitars, umbrellas, almonds and maple syrup.’ The bill also abolishes the luxury car tax to further cut the price of cars, and the passenger movement charge, which will help our tourism industry.

    ‘My plan to nearly halve Commonwealth tax collections is responsible and doable because it is coupled with even greater cuts to Commonwealth Government spending,’ Senator Leyonhjelm said. ‘Both the spending cuts and tax cuts have been independently costed and published by the Parliamentary Budget Office. ‘My bill to slash tax will not pass the parliament in the final sitting weeks before the election. But for each tax cut detailed in the bill, it will allow us to ask the major parties “Why not?”

    ‘My bill also demonstrates to voters that there is only one party serious about easing their tax burden, and that’s the Liberal Democrats.’…

    …and this rather small outfit merely replicated a press release.

    Don Dale Teen inmates awarded payout for mistreatment ordered to pay legal costs

    Amos Aikman
    Northern Correspondent
    @amosaikman
    An hour ago December 5, 2018

    Four former Don Dale inmates last year awarded between $12,000 and $17,000 each in damages for being wrongly spit-hooded, shackled or handcuffed had previously rejected settlement offers up to $150,000 and could now end up with debts instead.

    The four, some of whom have committed serious offences as adults and who cannot be named for legal reasons, were ordered to pay the Northern Territory government’s costs after a judge found tear-gassing them to end a disturbance in 2014 was not illegal.

    Justice Judith Kelly said in deciding the four cases at the NT Supreme Court last year that she had generally “preferred the evidence of the youth justice officers and prison officers” over the plaintiffs’ at times unsubstantiated claims.

    “I cannot ignore the fact that each of the three plaintiffs who gave evidence … has a

    considerable criminal history involving offences of dishonesty, and each has a motive to

    exaggerate the things they say were done to them and to minimise their own misbehaviour,” Justice wrote in her decision.

    “I do not think it reasonable at all to suggest that the corrections authorities should have

    responded to riotous and destructive behaviour in a detention centre with promises of better conditions.”

    Ironically, a new crop of Don Dale managers has lately been accused of doing just that: Youth Justice Officers are understood to be privately fuming about the perceived removal of consequences for bad behaviour in the wake of the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the NT.

    Some insiders blamed a lack of consequences for a riot last month that caused around a million dollars worth of damage and saw Don Dale closed for almost a week. Inmates’ advocates say unsuitable facilities are exacerbating bad behaviour.

    In deciding earlier this week how to award costs in the four plaintiffs’ civil cases, Justice Kelly revealed that each had initially offered to settle for $50,000 back in 2015. The then Giles government “did not respond” to those offers, she wrote.

    From the Oz. Serves them right.

  67. From The Olde Fredde:
    Struth:

    If nations can’t work out what they need to do to become developed, when the examples are right there before them, subsidising them is pointless.
    The west did it without subsidy.
    And without others examples.

    Be careful, Struth. I brought this up a couple of years ago only to get abused by the Hall Monitor and his enforcers, despite it being A Very Good Question.
    I only mention it now because the Economic Sophisticates can be very abusive of the questioner, rather than the question.

You will have the same rights, so when the entire population of Somalia moves to Britain, followed by 4 million from Ethiopia and 7 million from Latin America, you can move to Somalia. It’s just a matter of Britain signing the accord in a few weeks time.

    We won’t sign? We won’t have to. If the UN declares free movement to be a right, almost all immigration appeals against deportation will succeed, just as the right of free speech, the safety of a person, religion, family life etc are now a given in our courts.

    Fantastic, fantasy, scare mongering ? Cast your mind back to 1980. Would you have been able to envision Britain in 2018 ?”

    The Rebel Media reports:
    “In less than two weeks, the United Nations is convening a secretive conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

    They are meeting to create a new “human right” for foreign migrants to come to Canada (or any other country that signs the deal).

    The full name of the agreement is the “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration: Intergovernmentally Negotiated and Agreed Outcome”. And that tells you a lot about it — it’s already a done deal; the outcome is pre-determined; and it normalizes mass immigration, turning it into a human right.

    It’s terrifying — which is precisely why the mainstream media are ignoring it.

    the word “right” appears more than 100 times in the agreement
    the word “democracy” doesn’t appear once
    migrants are given legal rights to everything from social services to health care
    migrants are given the legal right to bring all family members with them, no matter their skill or fit

    And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to erasing international borders, this UN deal also targets any local citizens who might object to their country being turned into a massive refugee camp.

    it requires pro-migrant information to be part of school curriculums
    it requires governments to “sensitize” and “educate” the news media, and to punish any media that don’t support mass migration

    There is almost nothing that this deal doesn’t touch — and Justin Trudeau, and his immigration minister Ahmed Hussen, have sworn that he plans to force it onto Canada!

    Here’s a terrifying interview I did today with Guidy Mamann, a Canadian immigration lawyer with 30 years experience. The more Guidy told me about this deal, the more afraid I became.”

    Formal support for the ban was signed off in a closed-door meeting of opposition MPs yesterday after Labor worked with the Greens this week to tweak the proposal. This is despite earlier criticism from Labor senator Claire Moore that the Greens bill overstepped the mark and was a “flat political statement that people don’t like coal-power stations”.

    Ideas do not exist in a vacuum, but connected to other ideas (assumptions of fact, inconsistency with other ideas, morality etc).

    Kids do not have the wherewithal to negotiate their way through it all because it takes experience and maturity.

    Indoctrinating kids is a means of alienating them from their families – particularly considering the progressives attitude to different opinions is one of hostility and suspicion of whomsoever holds them.

    Oz politicians again voting to root us:

    A backroom deal between two of Australia’s government and opposition parties should mean local law enforcement can force firms to backdoor their communications by Christmas. The “Access and Assistance” bill allows designated law enforcement agencies to direct a wide range of technology providers – pretty much anybody who uses encryption – to help them obtain backdoor access to their products. It bears a remarkable similarity to the recently proposed “crocodile clips” idea floated by British intelligence agencies for wiretapping online chat.

    They want to snoop on us anytime on any app. But they actually don’t know what they will do.

    Apparently, agencies themselves aren’t entirely sure of the operation of the bill: “Once the laws come into effect [agencies] will start exploring what this means”, MacGibbon said.

    Very comforting!

    Surprise!

    Bouncy Crypto developer Jon Eaves carved out a quick demonstration of how quickly someone can write a new encrypted chat app:

    To show the stupidity of the Australian gov I’ve created a simple concept app which encrypts chat messages in about 4 hours. Your stupid legislation means anybody who wants to remain secret can do the same. And you’ve compromised everybody in doing it. https://bitbucket.org/jon_eaves/chips/src/master/

    Proton Mail was blunt: Since they’re not subject to Australian law (just as MacGibbon complained), they won’t comply with requests to weaken encryption: As a Swiss company, we are subject to Swiss law, and we do not have the ability to decrypt your messages.

They would have to know to keep themselves from drinking too much, not making themselves sick on cigarettes, and so on, but start making their own sensible choices.

    This brings me to a point I was thinking this morning.
    Of all things about the Pomgolian whining at the Gruinaid that Tory Austerity was causing kids to come to school still in nappies.
    In ye olde days nappies were cloth, a pain for mothers to wash and had to be changed fairly quickly to avoid nappy rash and leaks.
    Then came the disposables, relatively expensive but able to avoid the washing pain, early versions still left the kid pretty “wet” so changing them quickly was still the norm.

    Since then we have nappies which are excellently made, absorb a bucket of piss without the kids getting grumbly and again, no washing chores.

    My theory is the advent of easy to use disposables has led to the apparent spate of 4 year olds in nappies precisely because people are happy to trade responsibility for convenience. Everyone wanted the kid out of nappies in the old days, nowadays there are parents who think “Suitable for 10-15kgs”is the amount of crap the nappy can hold not the kids weight.

    Same with government, lazy people are happy, especially if someone else is paying for it, to avoid their normal civilizational duties and leave it to someone else to pick up their shit.

    The ultimate SJW?

    The teenage star of the global student strike for climate change movement would ban private car ownership, meat eating and ration air travel.

    Greta Thunberg, 15, is being showcased at the Katowice climate conference in Poland like a Nordic child-Yoda with a message of doom.

    She chides politicians for acting like children and has been embraced by the climate establishment, fawned upon by media and granted a private audience with UN Secretary General, António Guterres.

    Thunberg is told by her minders she is a “sixth sigma person” whose knowledge of the climate is six standard deviations out from the average.

    She laments the ignorance of politicians and journalists who do not know their Keeling curve from the albedo.

    For months, Ms Thunberg has staged a one-girl protest every Friday outside the Swedish parliament.

    She is the motivation behind ClimateStrike which has spread to Australia with students wagging school to demand action on climate change.

    If Thunberg were allowed to call the shots they could look forward to a greatly restricted life.

    “Neither the rich nor the poor can consume as we do now,” Ms Thunberg says.

    “In this situation we need some kind of rationing.”

    Students and activists, protesting climate change, stage a sit-in in the marble foyer at Parliament House in Canberra. Picture: AAP
    Students and activists, protesting climate change, stage a sit-in in the marble foyer at Parliament House in Canberra. Picture: AAP
    Ms Thunberg has an uncompromising belief in her understanding of the science of climate change and disdain for journalists who do not surrender impartiality for advocacy.

    For her, every headline and every front page should be about the “climate crisis”.

    Ms Thunberg is on the Katowice trail with her equally hardcore father Svante Thunberg who claims to be a third cousin of Svante Arrhenius, the Nobel prize winning chemist who first discovered the link between atmospheric CO2 and global temperature.

    Svante Thunberg says none of today’s political parties are up to the challenge.

    “We need a complete system change, stop flying and stop eating meat,” he said.

    “There is no politics to solve the situation we are in today.

    “There is not one single political party that I know of that will solve this crisis so we need to create a whole new thing and that is why we also need to lead by example.”

    Ms Thunberg’s climate crusade started after she fell ill.

    “She stopped eating and talking and fell into a depression and stayed at home from school,” Mr Thunberg said.

    “It turned out she was very concerned and upset about climate, she could not get this out of her head,” he said.

    “The fact everyone was saying one thing and doing the exact opposite.”

    Ms Thunberg says she has no immediate plans to enter politics.

    “I am just going to sit outside parliament in Sweden every Friday until Sweden is aligned with the Paris agreement,” she said.

    Greetings Cats and Kittehs. I’m considering acquiring Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules for Life for holiday reading. I’ve heard and read mixed reviews. Mrs Ski heard that it’s rubbish. She’s a lefty who likes the ABC, so this encourages me to read it. I generally take the opposite of her advice in these matters. I don’t have much time for reading. I regard it as a luxury, so I am very selective. I’m more interested in politics, economics, and strong character than I am in pyschology. The few videos that I’ve seen of Peterson have been impressive, especially where he wiped the floor with that British interviewer. He doesn’t seem too bad for a Canadian. Any (short) reviews or advice, please?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Fifteen-year-old Greta Thunberg has been protesting for more than a month. Before the country’s parliamentary election on September 9th, she went on strike and sat on the steps of the parliament building, in Stockholm, every day during school hours for three weeks. Since the election, she has returned to school for four days a week; she now spends her Fridays on the steps of parliament.

    So he gets extradited to NSW.
    Then he applies for bail.

    Of course she couldn’t.

    I was working so I had to be careful what I said (no politics) and the discussion was something where I said to someone else, oh well they should just let the kids be kids.
    Plenty of time for them to think about all that when they’re adults
    She absolutely , quite viciously jumped down my throat in a way that would make Notafan appear happy to hear from me in comparison.

    No she cried, it’s absolutely vital that they understand the past and take responsibility for it.
    No shit, she was pure evil in her spit.
    Pure hatred of the west.

    She was the cause of her grand daughter’s demise.
    The kid felt guilty being white and breathing.
    I should have said stuff the job and told her that, and I regret that I did not.

    How low can Turn-failure go??

    How about “leaking to the Guardian” low.

    Malcolm Turnbull suggested it was possible Labor’s proposal to preserve the national energy guarantee, with a 45% emissions reduction target, would not drive up prices, in an early draft of his speech to an energy conference obtained by Guardian Australia.

    ….
    “Labor has announced it will adopt the Neg but with a higher emissions target,” the early draft, seen by Guardian Australia, said. “Ours, as you know, was 26% which was only just above business as usual so it obviously had no adverse impact on prices.

    “There is some modelling already from Frontier Economics which suggests that Labor’s 45% target will not result in higher prices,” the early draft said. “That assertion deserves sceptical assessment, but it is also important regularly to review these models in the light of the latest technology and market information.

    “A great deal depends too on whether a 45% reduction means simply that emissions in 2030 – in that year – should be 45% less than in 2005. If that were the case, implying a hockey stick, the additional cost may not be as high as it would appear.”

    Turnbull issued the following statement to Guardian Australia about the unauthorised disclosure of his draft speech to the energy conference. “The notes were obtained by Guardian Australia without my authority.

    “They are incomplete draft material. The only remarks released with my authority was the speech that I gave at the conference, a transcript of which is on my website.”

    Please not Turn-failures assumption that there has been no increase in power prices.
    Who are you going to believe, Turnbull or the electricity companies debt collector?

  163. Speedbox

    The “Access and Assistance” bill allows designated law enforcement agencies to direct a wide range of technology providers – pretty much anybody who uses encryption – to help them obtain backdoor access to their products.

    As many have noted, this is nonsense. Of course, we can expect to hear a beat-up ‘success story’ at some time in the future but the only people intercepted will be the stupid ones who use the relatively ‘mainstream’ methods of communicating. Message encryption technology is well established – some are bloody brilliant – and in many cases the technology provider can’t provide the decryption keys (even if they wanted to) because they don’t have them!

    But, the stupid ones will continue to be caught regardless of the legislation. For example, it is well known that the Police trawl through Facebook and similar sites looking for assorted criminal offences. Believe it or not, some retarded individuals advertise drugs using ‘code’ to disguise the name of the product on these websites – seriously! What about that recent dope who boasted about his ‘new wheels’ on social media recently with a photo of himself with the car (also showing its rego plates). He had stolen the car! Needless to say, plod went round to his house and arrested him.

    My point is that there will always be stupid people who will unthinkingly use ‘public’ facilities, messaging systems to advertise or message about their nefarious activities. But those who (seriously) mean us harm are well ahead of the game and this legislation will not make one iota of difference.

  164. Knuckle Dragger

    GroogsRae, 4.46;

    Actually, the QLD court could, if it wished, grant bail in an extradition matter where the offence/s occurred in another jurisdiction. But if you’d read your Commonwealth Service and Execution of Process Act 1992 you’d have known that before opening your ill-informed trap.

    Remand for a crime that old isn’t unusual. In this case the crook has demonstrated his ability to hide for almost four decades. Best to keep him where you can see him.

  165. From old Fred…

    RACV recommends that child restraints are professionally fitted to ensure correct instalment, so children are transported safely. The re-elected government has promised to offer grants to Neighbourhood Houses and community organisations across the state for seats to be professionally installed for free.

    RACV would like further detail on how this will be implemented. The program should only be delivered by trained fitters and an audit process needs to ensure seats are correctly installed. With approximately 80,000 babies born in Victoria each year the program can’t fund every baby seat installation, so it is important that the program prioritises parents that need financial assistance the most. For example, the scheme could be made available to health care card holders.”

    How far do we need to take credentialism?.

    Then you look at some of those doing ‘she’ll be right’ baby seat installations and shudder.

    Buy lots of tinned tuna.
    Millenials don’t eat it because Gaia or something.

    Sure, millennials might be killing canned tuna. But not because they hate can openers. (WaPo 3 Dec)

    A Wall Street Journal article about the tuna industry alleges that millennials are killing it — not because they don’t like eating fish, but because they don’t own can openers.

    Here’s an alternate theory: Maybe millennials aren’t eating as much tuna because they grew up learning about how dolphins — the magical creatures of their Lisa Frank Trapper Keepers — were often killed when they became trapped in tuna nets? Or maybe it’s because they’re a health-conscious generation that worries about mercury poisoning? Or maybe it’s because it’s a generation that cares about the environment and struggles with the level of tuna overfishing? (Okay, it’s still the generation that made Ahi poke bowls mega-popular, so maybe not that one.)

    It’s well worth reading.
    The “Rules” are logical, useful, and rigorously supported with sound rationale. He says that young men are his main audience but the rules apply to all ages and both sexes.

These include Insilico Medicine, a next-generation artificial intelligence company specialising in the application of deep learning to drug discovery and ageing research; Juvenescence AI, a joint venture with Insilico Medicine focused on the clinical development of AI-generated compounds; NetraPharma, a joint venture using artificial intelligence to improve clinical trial design.

    Probably the most audacious idea is LyGenesis, a company with seeks to use a patient’s own lymph nodes as bioreactors to grow functioning ectopic organs. Another venture is AgeX Therapeutics, a company applying intellectual property related to cell immortality and pluripotency to biogerontology.”

    It’s blue.
    It’s a beautiful bright blue.

    Pretty!

    Brightest comet of the year will zoom near Earth next week

    Skywatchers will get a special treat next week as the year’s brightest comet flies across the night sky.

    Though the comet has the rather uninspiring name of “46P/Wirtanen,” it will be among the 10 closest comet approaches to Earth since 1950 and the 20th-closest approach of a comet dating as far back as the ninth century, according to Sky & Telescope.

    Wirtanen’s closest approach to the sun will be Wednesday, Dec. 12, and its closest approach to Earth will be Sunday, Dec. 16, EarthSky said. On that day, the comet will be “only” 7.1 million miles from Earth, which is rather close in cosmic terms. (The sun, for instance, is about 93 million miles away.)

    The comet should be visible with the naked eye, but the best views will probably be through binoculars and small telescopes, especially away from city lights.

    Oh, so they know.

    I know, right? Something’s going on. Too suspicious to be a coincidence.

    Existential question: Can a female who identifies as a male, be guilty of manspreading?
    Or would it be more accurate to describe the offense as mansplitting?

    Let’s get these serious issues sorted before we dip into the trivialities like honour killing, stoning for adultery, no female education etc.

    Did I read correctly an article that Turnbull has been speaking with Shorten about energy policy? Could have been at Tim Blair’s site. If I am correct, what seat does Shorten offer Turnbull in the forthcoming election?

    I just heard on Sky that the economists were “surprised” at Australia’s economic demise.
    Proving once again that when it comes to economics, economists make good gardeners.

    Cricket Australia must be destroyed.

    Along with the Wallabies. But if India don’t win this series with Kohli in form then they never will. Ashwin also in for a big workload.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Turnbull was involved in setting up his own party of sorts.

    The Lizard People are indeed coming.

    They’ll be here to take Rae back to its own planet. Or experiment on it. Or both.

    Men are from mars, Googles is from Uranus?

    (I felt all egg like with that comment)
