    The alp is going to close 9 coal fired power stations

    If they use planned blackouts to facilitate this, there will be mutiny.

    The ALP (and their partners in crime, the LNP) has been closing down productive industries since 2007, and even before with the Howard’s Kyotoing of agricultural land use. Not much mutiny so far with lots of manufacturing, forestry and fishing gone. ..and…it looks like the peasants will be voting for more at the next Federal election.

    James Cook University confirms its place as the number one institution in the world for junk marine science.

    James Cook University marine biologist Dr Jodie Rummer said the environmental testing framework that looked at the impact of drilling in the Bight needed to consider the effect of increased noise and human presence on marine life.

    We know from my research, even small boats and the noise that the motors make are disturbing fish and the way they develop,” she said.

    “It increases the stress response quite a bit in fish, but we’re going on a much larger scale with some of the seismic testing that has to happen for this drilling.”

    Dr Rummer said her research showed that even a few drops of oil in an Olympic-sized swimming pool could severely impact marine ecosystems.

    “We’re seeing massive effects on behaviour and even physiological performance,” she said.

    “Fish are not able to recognise predators, they’re not able to school properly, as many fish need to do in order to avoid predators, and that’s a very, very small concentration, so we don’t need a massive oil spill to cause those effects.”

    Our Jodie is certainly not short of self regard.

    Based on his 20-year-long studies on integration and assimilation, Dutch professor of sociology Ruud Koopmans has come to the conclusion that Muslims are more difficult to integrate than other migrant groups.

    Ruud Koopmans claims than no Western country has managed to successfully integrate Muslims.

    “Muslims are much worse at integration than other groups of migrants, and there is no doubt that in most other groups of migrants, we see great progress from one generation to the next. Although it’s not completely absent in Muslims, the change is much slower,” he told Danish newspaper Berlingske recently.

    A new study finds a potential risk with self-driving cars: failure to detect dark-skinned pedestrians

    The report, “Predictive Inequity in Object Detection,” should be taken with a grain of salt. It hasn’t yet been peer-reviewed. It didn’t test any object-detection models actually being used by self-driving cars, nor did it leverage any training datasets actually being used by autonomous vehicle manufacturers. Instead, it tested several models used by academic researchers, trained on publicly available datasets. The researchers had to do it this way because companies don’t make their data available for scrutiny — a serious issue given that this a matter of public interest.

    I am watching a video from 2016 with Charles Murray and Bill Kristol.
    They cover the breakdown of white, American working class communities from the 1960s on.
    The pill, sexual revolution, divorce, migration all get a nod as causes.
    Then they discuss free trade and both agree it has no adverse effect. Surprised, they were, that it made an impression in the Trump election.

    I realised something.
    These guys, and many on here, just can’t get it. At all. They just do not have the cultural background to understand what it is.
    I can explain it, they still will not get it. They will not understand why the substitution of Western made goods for goods made in India, Pakistan, PRC, Fiji, Germany or where the hell ever, is the one, biggest “Fuck You” to their fellow citizens not in the elite classes.
    The same class of people who for decades devised jingoist advertising campaigns around “Proudly Made in the USA”, are unable to comprehend that for the people who made those goods, it wasn’t just a slogan.

    Is the Pope a Catholic

    Pope denounces ‘depraved’ antis3mitism and urges dialogue

    Francis met Friday with a delegation of the American J3wish Committee and praised their longstanding good relations.

    He lamented that their meeting was taking place amid the spread of a “climate of wickedness and fury, in which an excessive and depraved hatred is taking root.”

    And he warned that for Christians, any form of anti-S3mitism is “a rejection of one’s own origins, a complete contradiction.”

    The audience occurred days after Francis responded to longstanding requests from J3wish groups to open the Vatican archives of its World War II-era pope, Pius XII, who has faced accusations of having failed to speak out enough against the H0l0caust.

    Today I visited the ‘Bald Archy’ exhibition on its last day in Canberra. As at least some cats will be aware, the Bald Archies are a sort of satirical parallel to the Archibald portrait Prize.

    As usual, the entries ranged from very good through mediocre to rubbish. A minority of the entrants couldn’t actually depict their subjects, and you wonder why they bother or why the show accepts their stuff.

    The exhibition was heavily ‘progressive, with Abbott, Morrison, Dutton and Hanson caricatures coming in for major stick. Most of the Morrison-haters couldn’t quite draw him and one Dutton caricature – easy as, one would have thought – looked more like Jim Molan. Bishop, on the other hand, was the subject of a relatively benign portrait focussing on her red shoes.

    Several of the portraits were panegyrics rather than satires. The most blatant was the depiction of ABC sinecuree Kitty Flanagan, looking 30 years younger. According to the artist statement, Flanagan has recently ‘set the box office alight’ with some show or other and that the structure of her face seems ‘alive with enthusiasm’.

    No, I don’t see that. Former popes have cared about many different peoples around the world, no matter where they live or under what political system. It was compassion to people suffering, no matter the cause. Easing suffering was the job.

    Pope Francis has seemed to think about climate refugees though. Climate seems out of the realms of Popes, to my mind. It’s not about brutal dictators or abuse, just the climate. That is a little un pope like.

    Leigh,this happened the week before :

    Incident: Ethiopian B788 near Jeddah on Mar 5th 2019, “minor technical problem”
    By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, Mar 7th 2019 00:20Z, last updated Sunday, Mar 10th 2019 19:47Z
    An Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-8, registration ET-AOP performing flight ET-502 (sch.dep. Mar 4th) from Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) to Dublin (Ireland), was enroute at FL400 over the Red Sea about 60nm southwest of Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) when the crew selected the emergency squawk into the transponder and descended the aircraft to FL100 being level at FL100 9 minutes after leaving FL400 (average sinkrate 3333 fpm). The aircraft turned around to return to Addis Ababa. About 10 minutes after levelling off at FL100 the aircraft climbed back to FL240 maintaining FL240 until reaching the top of descent into Addis Ababa. The aircraft landed safely back in Addis Ababa about 2:20 hours after leaving FL400.

    The airline apologized to their passengers for the “minor technical problem”, a replacement aircraft would take them to Dublin.

    A replacement Boeing 787-8 registration ET-AOQ reached Dublin with a delay of 6:15 hours.

    The occurrence aircraft returned to service 21 hours after landing back.

    On Mar 10th 2019 The Aviation Herald received information that the aircraft was enroute at FL400 with no cockpit indication, however, the passenger oxygen masks were released and most of the passenger service units were activated. The crew initiated an emergency descent. Once level at FL100 the crew assessed the situation, however, no reason was apparent of why the oxygen masks had been released. The crew therefore decided to climb to FL240 and return to Addis Ababa. No second depressurization occurred on the way back. Maintenance subsequently found the forward cargo door seal was damaged, the high difference of cabin pressre to ambient pressure (at FL400) caused the cargo door to shift slightly out of position releasing the cabin air causing a loss of cabin pressure. The seal subsequently closed again at FL100. All passenger service units were replaced, the seal was replaced. An investigation has been initiated into why the crew climbed back to FL240 returning to Addis Ababa and did not divert to avoid high terrain (MSA around Addis Ababa 14,500 feet, highest mountain peak 3200 meters/10500 feet MSL) on the way back.

    I think the sensors for the AoA readings are around the winglet of the 737 Max as per this link.

    For my money it is either the electronics interpreting the readings incorrectly and/or there are circumstances whereby the actual readings do not reflect the real AoA . As the winglet is a new design for Boeing perhaps there is turbulent flow that hasn’t been seen in the models and testing.

    They have delayed the launch of the 777X which, as I understand it has moveable winglets. Apart from the pure PR considerations they could be revisiting the winglet design and how it interacts with the control system.

    “FFS, a side window with AoA limits drawn on it in texta and water droplets feeding along it would be a fantastic analogue AoA indicator.”
    The water will freeze.
    A short length (about 20cm) of red wool taped to the side window at the front end and some reference marks will do fine.
    Every sailplane in the world has one of these in the middle of the canopy in front of the pilot so that he or she flys the thing straight on to the airflow to minimise drag. Works for AoA if mounted on the side.

    The 777X launch delay is just PR. Bad time to be blowing your horn about the new airplane. The wing TIPS on the 777X fold so it can fit the taxiways and gates, but they only fold on the ground. Nothing to do with winglets (the 777X doesn’t have any) or moveable winglets.

    “FFS, a side window with AoA limits drawn on it in texta and water droplets feeding along it would be a fantastic analogue AoA indicator.”
    The water will freeze.
    A short length (about 20cm) of red wool taped to the side window at the front end and some reference marks will do fine.

    I was being a tiny bit facetious, but the point is valid. The more you interfere, interpret and process measurements, the more you are likely to fuck up.
    Simple direct analogue measurement of key parameters might just be the go.

  75. Leigh Lowe

    I think the sensors for the AoA readings are around the winglet of the 737 Max …

    They are fucking WHERE?
    That would be your problem, right there.
    That can’t be right, surely?

    I saw the words AoA sensor winglet which must refer to the actual sensor rather than its placement. I also saw the folding winglets on the 777X and assumed Boeing had put into practice an advanced wing design.

    Japan’s Tepco fights for return to nuclear power after Fukushima

    Eight years after the accident in Fukushima, preparations are underway to restart the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa nuclear power plant operated by Tepco. But residents fear a second disaster. Kiyo Dörrer reports from Kashiwazaki.

    When in full operation, the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa power plant is the biggest in the world, capable of servicing 16 million households. But all of its seven reactors have been idle since the nuclear accident at Fukushima Daiichi. This is Tepco’s only remaining nuclear power plant apart from the tsunami-stricken plants in Fukushima, in the neighboring prefecture.

    The complaint made against the Cat led to me being asked to give a talk to academic board about academic freedom.

    Hahaha, Sinc. Hairy classifies that in itself as cruel and unusual punishment. 🙂

    Egg – I started that sentence by saying Hairy’s eye, then changed my mind, and said Hairy has, and forgot to remove the apostrophe ‘s’. So no, that giant thing I was referring to was not any part, indeed, nor a very specific part, of my dear Hairy Ape. He wouldn’t object if I left you all believing it was though. All men love affirmation in this regard, even those who have no need to affect concern.

    We have just come back from a panel presentation at the Rose Bay RSL that was put on by the Australian Jooish Assn (David Adler’s group), MC’d by Rowan Dean and featuring reps from four small parties: Lib Dems, Aust Cons, One Nation and the Christian Democrats. Speakers respectively, all Party principals, were David L, Greg Walsh, Mark Latham, and Fred Nile. Mark Latham was absolutely outstanding. Passionate about the Australian working class and the unvoted PC world foisted on them, highly analytic across a range of topics, on top of the material and at home in the political gamesmanship of it. David L. also very good, drawing on his experience in the realpolitik of making a difference in Senate business while running tonight for the LDP a very good line on liberty and small government. Fred Nile came across as a battle-scarred old campaigner, used to lawfare, accompanied by his ultra-feisty younger wife, who also spoke using a concluding biblical exhortation. Newcomer Greg Walsh was clear and informed although lacking the political experiences of the other three with which to salt his spiel on the significance of free speech and the freedom to speak, so he lacked some drama in this line-up of players. A long question and answer session followed. More questions to Latham than anyone else.

    Hairy’s letter that I mentioned he was writing to complain about the activities of Sleeping Giants and one of the companies who buckled under to them was read out by Bolt on his show tonight just before we headed out to the above shindig. Shades of Cassie’s lead on the NIB Healthcare Group; it galvanized Hairy to finish his own letter about Scenic Luxury Tours. Cassie is right. If enough of us fired a few emails each time to companies whose products we use, (signed with real name and address), to counteract this nonsense, it would collapse under the weight of genuine customers (not Twitter cyphers) resisting it.

Proved to be a Saudi Prince who was not licencesd was behind the controls. He had been caught previously and grounded however you just can’t keep a good man down apparently. Crash was written up as pilot error but no reference of said Prince. I wonder if it has become a family tradition?

    Malcolm Muggeridge understood it; the fall of the West.

    “So the final conclusion would surely be that whereas other civilizations have been brought down by attacks of barbarians from without, ours had the unique distinction of training its own destroyers at its own educational institutions, and then providing them with facilities for propagating their destructive ideology far and wide, all at the public expense. Thus did Western Man decide to abolish himself, creating his own boredom out of his own affluence, his own vulnerability out of his own strength, his own impotence out of his own erotomania, himself blowing the trumpet that brought the walls of his own city tumbling down, and having convinced himself that he was too numerous, labored with pill and scalpel and syringe to make himself fewer. Until at last, having educated himself into imbecility, and polluted and drugged himself into stupefaction, he keeled over–a weary, battered old brontosaurus–and became extinct.”

    They travelled Perth-Sydney on the Indian Pacific, after careful planning – no problems.
    Comprehensive paperwork was lodged with the cruise company which advertises as “disabled person friendly”. The booking was accepted on the basis of the paperwork which in included medical reports.

    They were knocked backed quayside in Sydney – same story. The family was devastated, but too exhausted to report to HREOC (which was my suggestion).

    Man charged over alleged carjacking – Eastgardens
    Tuesday, 12 March 2019 02:51:49 AM

    A man has been charged following investigations into an alleged carjacking at Eastgardens yesterday.

    About 4.45pm (Monday 11 March 2019), a 52-year-old woman got into her 2015 Porsche Macan 4WD which was parked on the top level of a shopping centre in Eastgardens.

    As she was starting the car a man jumped into the front passenger seat and threatened the woman with a device that she believed may have been a stun gun.

    He told the woman to drive, however, she jumped out of the car and was assisted by members of the public.

    The man jumped into the driver’s seat and drove the Porsche from the carpark.

    Officers from Botany Bay Police Area Command attended and commenced inquiries. The woman’s mobile phone was still in the car and officers tracked the vehicle to Wentworth Avenue, Eastlakes.

    Assisting Highway Patrol officers located a 42-year-old man coming out of bushes on Wentworth Avenue and he was arrested.

    He was taken to Mascot Police Station where he was later charged with aggravated take motor vehicle with person in it or armed with weapon and drive motor vehicle during disqualification period.

    He was refused bail and will appear in Central Local Court today (Tuesday 12 March 2019).

    Inquiries are continuing into the identity of a possible co-offender.

    There were just over 7000 offenc­es of this type recorded in 2009, with the figure skyrocketing to 15,701 in 2016 before declining slightly to 15,022 last year.

    Sunday’s shooting follows a wave of shootings in Melbourne over the past two weeks.

    The first shooting occurred last Friday week in Kensington, where three men were shot outside the Melbourne Pavilion, killing builder Ben Togiai.

    Two people were arrested in Bankstown in Sydney’s west on Friday night over the shootings. Mikhael Myko, 25, has been extradited to Melbourne, while 27-year-old Abdullah El Nasher is in hospital after jumping from a balcon­y.

    Two days after the shootings in Kensington, Mitat Rasimi’s body was found with multiple bullet wounds after he crashed his car in Dandenong in the city’s southeast.

    Two men have been arrested following a brawl outside Burwood Railway Station that’s left a man in hospital tonight.

    About 11.45pm (Monday 11 March 2019), a fight broke out between two groups of men on Burwood Road, near Railway Crescent, Burwood, resulting in a 29-year-old man being assaulted.

    He was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

    Officers from Burwood Police Area Command established a crime scene and spoke to number of men at the scene.

    A search commenced for two men who were seen running from the area.

    About 12.45am (Tuesday 12 March 2019), two men returned to the railway station and spoke with police.

    A man who carjacked a luxury car overnight was caught by police who tracked the vehicle using the owner’s phone.

    The Porsche’s 52-year-old owner got into her car at a shopping centre in Eastgardens last night when the man jumped into the front passenger seat and threatened her with what is believed to have been a stun gun.

    The woman fled but left her phone behind, which officers used to track the vehicle to Wentworth Avenue in Eastlakes, where they arrested a 42-year-old man who had been hiding in nearby bushes.

    The man was charged with multiple offences and is due to appear in Central Local Court today, while police continue hunting for a suspected co-offender.

    The Police Minister Lisa Neville said that there was no reason for the public to feel unsafe. The Oz.

    The people who are there to supposedly provide law and order seem to feel they need hold no brief for the people they are charged with protecting.

    They are content to have ordinary people at risk of near random and usually brutal violence for the benefit of a tiny minority with an outsized criminal bent. They are happy not only to have people holed up in their own homes but, if these criminal elements break in to commit mayhem, then the people are meant to just submit rather than fight back – because protecting themselves and theirs is deemed a criminal act.

    And here I am talking not just Africans, but ice-addicts, emotionally stunted welfare/crime families etc.

    And it just gets worse.

    Our politicians and upper-echelon police know they will never really be held accountable. At the very worst they will lose their jobs, but with favours acquired and numerous bureaucratic procedures designed to obscure and shield it should never come to that.

    So…who are they serving? Whose favour is it that they feel the need to cultivate.

    If the political class was more afraid of voters than progressive posturers who have a success rate of exactly 0% then they would take pride in wiping out the gangs and any number of other violent offenders.

    Thing is – this is exactly the reason most police join the force. I doubt it is because they feel a burning urge to issue fines to people driving 105kph in a 100kph zone.

    Even FOX calls this psychopath a ‘woman.’

    A transgender woman has been arrested in connection to the random attacks of at least seven people who were sprayed with a chemical substance on Friday in New York in what is being investigated as a hate crime.

    Thomas J. Heard, 37, was arrested after allegedly threatening someone with a sharp object in the Bronx, and the victim worked with police to track her down. Authorities believe that Heard also was responsible for dousing a man with a pepper spray-like substance at the 125th St. subway station of the A/C/B/D lines on Friday, then running out into the street and spraying five more people.

    Soon after, she allegedly attacked another woman waiting for the No. 1 train at W. 96th St. and Broadway. Then, around 2 p.m., a woman appearing to be Heard can be seen on a surveillance video violently kicking a stranger, Denise Galloway, in the leg before spraying her and her boyfriend.

Depends very much on where he lives though. Schools in aspirational middle-class areas tend to add large grains of salt to the leftist education, as too many dads are there checking on things. It’s the poorer areas, with many absent dads, where the kids get the worst deal. Leftism strikes again at the working class.

The Empire, Soviet Russia, the BBC, the tawdry 60s – he experienced them all. Recognised a kindred spirit in Solzhenitsyn and was instrumental in his flight to the West where disappointment awaited. Muggeridge would not be surprised about anything today. He could see it all around him back then.

    Socially progressive Lib’  joins the race for Curtin

    A wealthy Perth businesswoman says she will contest the safe Liberal seat of Curtin as a “socially progressive Liberal independent”, claiming her campaign has ­received a huge boost by the party’s decision to preselect conservative former university boss Celia Hammond.

    Louise Stewart, 43, a lifelong Liberal voter, said yesterday she had lost faith in the party and believed she would win Curtin as an independent, promising to reveal her financial backers and formal policies later this week.

    She said Curtin, in Perth’s wealthy western suburbs, was a progressive electorate in which more than 70 per cent of voters supported same-sex marriage in the 2017 postal survey. The Liberal Party’s choice of Ms Hammond on Sunday proved it was “stuck in the past”.

    Ms Stewart’s entry in the race comes as the Morrison government faces challenges from ­socially progressive independents in several other seats, including against Josh Frydenberg in Kooyong, Greg Hunt in Flinders and Tony Abbott in Warringah.

    Ms Hammond, 50, was preselected on Sunday, easily defeating moderate candidate Erin Watson-Lynn, who was seen as having the backing of long-time Curtin MP Julie Bishop.

    Ms Hammond, the former vice-chancellor of the University of Notre Dame, is opposed to same-sex marriage, abortion, contraception and sex outside marriage.

    Instead of coal, she wants a “neutral” magical energy source. Presumably with a straight face, she also says Joyce is out of touch with Australians who care about cost of living rather than power stations:

    In one of her strongest criticisms yet, McKenzie accused her former leadership partner of derailing the political conversation.

    Asked if she was frustrated by Joyce’s comments in recent days, McKenzie said: “I think Australia is frustrated, you know, that there is a politician out there that is not focused on their needs and issues.

    “It is really clear when you’re out on the ground, talking to communities, as I have been, and small businesses, out in regional communities and our industries, that power prices is one of the number one issues. The cost of living is really biting out there, and so we need to be making sure that our policies address that.

    “But what we are agreed on is that we do need to back a neutral approach, a technology-neutral approach to getting reliable, baseload power into our energy system.”
