    Is it any wonder that the climate disasterians continue to influence yoof and industry, when the CEO of Apple is apologising for his generation’s terrible legacy re climate:

    On Saturday, Apple CEO Tim Cook, who was recently acclaimed as an even better leader than the legendary Steve Jobs, carved out a morning from his very busy schedule to deliver a commencement speech for the 2019 graduates of Tulane University in New Orleans.

    […]

    “In some important ways, my generation has failed you,” Cook said. “We spent too much time debating, too focused on the fight and not enough on progress.”

    “You don’t need to look far to find an example of that failure,” he continued, pointing to an example that no one understands better than those living in the natural disaster-dogged New Orleans: climate change.

    Very depressing. This guy is supposed to be quite bright.

    Three teenagers have been arrested in Sydney’s west after taking a car on a joyride
    The Daily Telegraph
    May 29, 2019 5:18am
    Subscriber only
    Three teenagers will face court today after allegedly being involved in a police pursuit in Sydney’s west overnight.

    Police began pursuing a car reported stolen along Luxford Rd, Shalvey around 9.30pm.

    The pursuit was terminated when the stolen vehicle crossed onto the wrong side of the road on Carlisle Avenue, Bidwell.

    A short time after, the car was involved in a crash with two other vehicles near the intersection of Luxford Road and Rooty Hill Road North at Hassall Grove.

    Two boys aged 12 and 15 were arrested at the scene, while two others, aged 14 and 17, were arrested later in a nearby field.

    The 15-year-old was released without charge but all of the others were charged with breaching bail and will appear before Parramatta Children’s Court today.

    Tim Cook’s Apple has
    removed the ability to add more RAM and storage to their computers,
    replaced what was the best keyboard on laptops with one that is less pleasant to use and unreliable, and requires replacing the whole top surface of the laptop to replace,
    Lost the creative market with a trash can styled Mac Pro that is not upgradable, and hasn’t been updated since 2013, along with introducing new versions of its pro software tools that have less functionality than the previous version, but prettier.
    Failed to regularly update its flagship iMac line with current CPUs
    Neglected it’s most popular and iconic laptop, the MacBook Air for four years before finally replacing it with a higher priced model with a less robust CPU and less ports
    Killed off the airport range of routers, the first and arguably best at the time networking devices ever made (Jobs’ Apple product) after neglecting them since 2012
    Just released a new iPod touch after four years, that received a three year old SoC in the update and not one other component updated (eg Bluetooth 4 in a 2019 device)
    Oh, and raised prices. A lot.

    Sales are not growing, just flatlining, revenue increases only maintained by raising prices on the faithful,

    but on the plus side, this prick sucks up to the correct political types and spends Apple resources on lefty agendas. So he is good.

  20. Entropy

    Steve Jobs was smart enough to say the right things but was laser focussed on pushing the envelope on market leading products that people loved.
    The prick probably annioted Cook as he knew Cook, a supply chain efficiency guru, could mind the store but could never outshine him in the ways that truly matter.

    What absolute shit.

    If leadership was walking into a role that already had a well established market, got several life-coach phrases from Facebook and telling them to employees and/or the public on stage, Beta O’Rourke would be POTUS.

    There is a vast gulf between salesmanship and leadership.

    NB: Jobs, although retired hurt early, was also a dingbat of the same type.

  23. Leigh Lowe

    I know there’s some other social media types on the Cat, but I’ve been giggling most of the night.

    At half legend half halfwit Collingwood antihero Dane Swan. His tweets are legendary.

    Yesterday afternoon after chinless wonder Daisy Thomas was suspended for being a wanker, Swan tweeted that in his opinion, being sat down by Caaarlton for a week wasn’t a punishment. Then he said that if he was Thomas, he’d ask to be suspended for the entire season.

    Good article on the massive corruption of the Obama administration, and the link to the Mueller “investigation””

    Joe DiGenova blows the lid off the real scandal: The Russia hoax was a cover-up effort for Obama’s political spying since 2012

    I’ve mentioned in the past that Obama had been caught spying on US senators including Rand Paul and Jeff Sessions (when he was in the Senate). Pretty much the above article summarizes what we here at the Cat already know, but it is nice to see it surfacing into the broader US consciousness.

    Meanwhile Mueller has gone to ground:

    Robert Mueller’s silence has become a problem

    A problem for lefties like the journo who wrote the article (yep I checked, he’s a full-throated lefty).

    I suspect Mueller is bright enough to know that there is a tornado of justice about to strike, and he is at ground zero. So he’s bunkering down and hoping to ride it out while the less-prudent members of the treason team get blown away.

    Tim Cook’s Apple has

    Steve jobs was the ‘genius’ and likely a quirky enough fellow, at times unpredictably fickle and demanding since he could ‘see’ things others couldn’t – and you would expect these traits to be a package deal.

    I wonder if Tim got the gig because they determined he would be easier to work with, but in choosing someone on that basis they forfeited the chance of a CEO with Job’s kind of gifts.

    They appointed an amiable manager rather than an entrepreneur because they didn’t understand that they needed one.

    This is all speculation with regards to Apple, but I suspect it is a dynamic that plays out at least some of the time.

    Trouble at t’ Mill:

    Bill Shorten being considered for disability portfolio as Kristina Keneally’s ambitions thwarted

    Several Labor MPs believe Mr Shorten still harbours leadership ambitions and wants to remain on the frontbench despite leading the party to two consecutive election losses.

    The former Labor leader has made it clear he would be interested in serving as health spokesman, a portfolio currently held by Victorian MP Catherine King.

    Brothers are doin’ it for themselves:

    Powerful South Australian senator Don Farrell is expected to remain as Labor’s deputy leader in the Senate as NSW senator Kristina Keneally lacks the numbers.

    Richard Marles has long coveted the foreign affairs portfolio and as the incoming deputy leader it is his prerogative to choose his portfolio.

    For those who collect ammunition for climate conversations with relos and pollies here is one worth bookmarking. Our election gets a mention.

    Climate Change is a Political Loser (FPM, 28 May)

    Lots of good stuff, so hard to pull out a para that does justice. Here’s one which encapsulates the headline.

    The politicians should have seen the signs of global warming’s declining utility as an electoral scare-tactic. In the U.S., “climate change” for years has ranked low on the list of issues voters are concerned about. Before last year’s midterm elections, in a Gallup Poll “climate change” ranked next to last of 12 issues that voters judged “extremely/very important,” just above investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Of course, people will tell a pollster they’re “concerned” and think “something should be done” about climate change, because they’ve been told that’s what the “right” people think. But when it comes to election day, most will vote for a growing economy, wage increases, more jobs, lower taxes, and fewer federal Nurse Ratcheds trying to cram more social or environmental “justice” pills down their throats.

    Much more, including mentions of Karl Popper, Judy Curry, the Sun and the 60 year cycle.

    Icy conditions have blasted parts of southeastern NSW this morning, with damaging winds and blizzards expected to batter the region’s alpine peaks.

    The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a warning for the Illawarra, including the Blue Mountains, parts of the Central and Southern Tablelands and Snowy Mountains, for winds of 90km/h with peak gusts in excess of 125km/h.

    Travel should be postponed on back country roads until conditions improve, the NSW National Parks and Wildlife says, with conditions expected to ease later this morning.

    Yesterday pm, Max put up a piece called ‘Four Seasons in Academic Hell’. It consisted of a long exegesis and reflection on many years of teaching creative writing. Essentially, it was an account of how political correctness has invaded university classrooms and done its usual job of diminishing all intellectual life, exampled here by its impact on the content of creative writing and the constraints put on publishing it. I read it all, shot through as it was with the references and attitudes of an old literateur’s display of knowledge, which made it heavy going at times. I do recommend it as an interesting and literate read though.

    At one point, this lecturer has to undergo mandatory sensitivity training regarding sexuality and the giving and taking of offence. The lecturer opted to sit a multiple choice exam as an alternative, finding that the answers defeated any normal thought processes or logic, for several of the choices were clearly valid ones. But no. You had to get the Answer According to the Authorities.

    You were NOT allowed to fail:

    Could I give myself the pleasure of deliberately failing? As it happened, no such insubordination would be permitted. Like a rat pressing its lever, I had no choice but to push the correct button and await my piece of cheese. It took me a day and half the night to realize what you have probably gathered already: This was not a quiz designed to discover what I knew but to tell me what to think—that is, not an examination but an indoctrination. All one had to do in order to be released from the grip of the inquisitor was systematically choose every one of the options, A through F, until, DING! DING! DING!, the machine pushed you through to the end of the maze. This I could do, and did do, with my eyes closed. No need to read the questions or the sage commentary that followed. The time zipped by while I merrily pressed away while listening to the Concerti Grossi of Corelli. Ultimately a final DONG! and I emerged blinking into the light

    Apparently the Malaysians don’t like being sent Australian maggots.

    Malaysia to return illegally imported plastic waste to where it came from (28 May)

    PORT KLANG – Malaysia will send back plastic scrap imported illegally from several countries, including Singapore and Bangladesh, Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change, Yeo Bee Yin, said on Tuesday (May 28).

    “We will work very hard to make sure that whoever sends their waste to Malaysia, we will send it back and we will fight back. Even though we are a small country, we cannot be bullied by developed countries,” she told a news conference after inspecting nine containers from Australia, United States, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Japan, China and Bangladesh at Westport, Klang.

    Containers filled with contaminated, non-homogeneous, low quality, non-recyclable plastic waste are entering the country, contravening local and international laws, said Ms Yeo.

    She showed reporters plastic milk cartons riddled with maggots from Australia , while a container from China had packaging from France among its contents.

    Cute that French garbage sent to China was re-sent to Malaysia. Pass the parcel!

    I wonder if anyone in the MSM will mention how colonialist it is to send our green garbage to countries populated by brown-skinned people?

    The mission of 2006 UN Long Shadow’s author was to mitigate livestock “long shadow” through “intensification” where intensification was simply an euphemism for confined animal feeding operations [CAFO’s]. Yes, these UN authors were industrialists that wanted to expand factory farming.

    Regenerative forms of beef production, including both integrated and range based systems, are the largest threat to Pat Brown’s business model. If beef can be raised in a way that isn’t environmentally detrimental, then his whole PR strategy falls apart.

    Pointing out that the ‘Impossible Burger’ is a completely industrialised processed sludge of genetically modified, glyphosate saturated subsidised soy sludge, chemically treated to be palatable, and given religious cult style status through a fawning media is heretical.

    When a prole eating a processed, chemically manipulated ration sold by a cartel of our elites is presented by the media as a combined religious act of pennance and redemption, you have to expect their chemically manipulated Kool-aid ration to be served next.

    So this recycling scam is starting to come to a head. Around 50% of what you put in your recycling bin was not economic to recycle here and instead sent to China. There they sorted it for anything valuable, often with child labor in dangerous conditions and burnt a bunch of plastics often to get at metals such as copper. They Chinese govt banned this.

    The trade moved to other SE Asia and now they too are pushing back.

    What next?

    Well I have already heard rent seekers starting to prepare the Australian population for waste to energy plants. Basically burning garbage at high temps to release energy. Solves the recycling issue as you can still feel good you are saving the planet. Garbage companies save money on the trash tax of putting it in landfill and the electricity market which is teetering on the edge gets another source of supply. Win-Win-Win.

    Mark my words, burning garbage in Western Sydney is about to put to the people as a sustainable solution to save Mother Gaia. In a country with more space than any other available for the true sustainable solution which is to bury it.

    Zamira Hajiyeva: How the wife of a jailed banker spent £16m in Harrods
    Dominic Casciani Home affairs correspondent @BBCDomC on Twitter

    Documents disclosed to the BBC have revealed how a woman married to a jailed banker managed to spend £16m in Harrods without raising suspicions.

    Zamira Hajiyeva, currently fighting the UK’s first Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO), used 54 credit cards – many of which were linked to her husband’s bank – to go on a massive spending spree in the west London department store over a decade.

    Mrs Hajiyeva risks losing her £15m home near Harrods – plus a Berkshire golf course worth millions more on top – if she fails to explain the source of her wealth to the High Court.

    Her husband is serving a 15-year sentence in their native Azerbaijan for stealing millions from his state-controlled bank.

    Repetition replaces Truth.

    Exactly as repetition is the hammer that forms the thoughts of their abc staffroom into a perfect mass of hivemind orcs, so their media repeat their chosen social modifiers until the chants win the war.

    So in reality, Pat Brown will pretty much say whatever falsehood he has to say to further his business interests. He’ll pay for studies with methodologies to generate contrived statistics that he’ll chant over and over again like a mantra. Repetition replaces truth. Investors and consumers, who are so disconnected nowadays from any form of food production, will also cite these metrics as their rationalization for spending extra for these ultra-processed ingredients mushed into a disk shape that bleeds just like a real burger. Though if these investors and consumers were truly sincere about the health of the environment, they’d spend their dollars directly with ranchers and farmers using ruminants, including beef cattle, as tools to regenerate land and rebuild soil. Pat Brown’s Ecocide Burger doesn’t do a darn thing to regenerate land or rebuild soil. Pat Brown’s Ecocide Burger is nothing more than a GMO glyphosate tolerant soy facsimile.

    Weather warnings for Melbourne and Victoria as cold front sweeps state

    Rug up, Victoria. It’s about to get much, much colder, with many major centres not expected to hit double figure temperatures today as an icy blast hits.
    Staff writer, Herald Sun
    May 29, 2019 7:08am

    Victoria has shivered through its coldest temperatures of 2019 this week — and it’s about to get even colder.

    Bureau of Meteorology Victoria senior forecaster Richard Carlyon said a cold front was set to hit Victoria overnight and move across the state today, bringing with it bitter temperatures.

    This morning’s low was 7C at Melbourne Airport and a chilly 4C in Ferny Creek

    Today will be 3C-5C below average for most of Victoria, with snow falling down to 600m.
    Some major centres in Victoria will stay in single figures throughout the day.

    The warning follows some of the coldest temperatures of the year on Monday and heavy snow across the Alpine region this week.

    Ski resorts had their first major snowfall for the year, with more to come over the next few days.

    Supreme Court Upholds Pro-Life Law Requiring Proper Burial or Cremation for Babies Killed in Abortions
    After national controversy surrounding the Planned Parenthood abortion businesses’ sale of aborted babies and aborted baby body parts, then Indiana Governor Mike Pence signed into law a new measure providing that aborted babies may be buried or cremated.

    The new law would help stop the kind of sale of aborted babies and their body parts that Planned Parenthood facilities in other states have been caught arranging. Although Roe v. Wade prohibits states from banning abortions, pro-life advocates in Indiana believed the aborted baby ought to at least be treated respectfully even if the abortion clinic treated the baby with disrespect before the abortion.

    But Planned Parenthood sued to stop the law from being enforced and the lawsuit eventually made its way to the Supreme Court.

    Today, the nation’s highest court issued an order allowing Indiana to enforce the law. The court issued an unsigned order on a 7-2 ruling with two of the court’s liberals, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor, dissenting. The Supreme Court ruled the Constitution does not prohibit states from requiring the humane and dignified disposition of human fetal remains.

    Justice Ginsberg wrote a concurrence in part and dissent in part but nevertheless noted that she would deny certiorari of the whole case. Justice Ginsberg believes that the burial provision requires a heightened standard of review stating that “the cost of, and trauma potentially induced by, a post-procedure requirement [specifically, the disposal of fetal remains] may well constitute an undue burden.”

    It beggars belief the rationalizations these people engage in to maintain the abortion license.

    Get a life, Treasurer tells luxury car buyers

    VICTORIAN POLITICAL REPORTER

    Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas has defended his new luxury car tax, telling a business lunch that Victorians who spend years ­saving up to buy Toyota LandCruisers should “get a life”.

    Mr Pallas told the Melbourne Press Club/Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry lunch that he had increased taxes on luxury cars, property purchases by foreigners and goldmining, “because I could”, saying that a $5.2 billion write-down in stamp duty revenue amid a softening property market had necessitated the new taxes.

    Opposition Leader Michael O’Brien earlier dubbed the luxury car tax a “Toyota tax”, seizing on figures released earlier this year that showed Toyota ­customers were paying more of the federal government’s Luxury Car Tax than buyers of most prestige brands.

    According to a study by industry publication CarAdvice, Toyota customers paid $99.7 million in LCT last financial year, compared with $97m for Porsche, $84.5m for BMW, $81m for Jaguar/Land Rover and $45m for Audi. The federal tax imposes a 33 per cent levy on all vehicles priced above $66,331.

    Currently cars worth $66,331 to $100,000 are taxed at $10.40 for each $200 of the car’s value.

    Under Victoria’s proposed tax, buyers of cars worth $100,000-$150,000 will pay a duty of $14 per $200, and buyers of cars worth more than $150,000 will pay $18 per $200.

    A buyer of a new BMW 5 ­series worth $120,000 would pay an extra $2160, and a buyer of a new Maserati would pay an extra $7600.

    However, Mr Pallas’s discounts for approved green ­vehicles mean a buyer of a Tesla Model X, worth $146,000, would pay $1460 less in tax

    Clive’s $60 million bought 459,397 votes. That’s $130 per vote. Extrapolating, he would have had to spend $650 million to win power.
    A total of .5895% voted for Fraser Anning’s Harpics*. That’s less than half a percent – comforting….

    Victoria Police hunt three teens over Melbourne crime rampage

    Victoria Police are hunting for three teenagers as a crime rampage across Melbourne shows “no signs of slowing down.”

    Commander Stuart Bateson, head of the Australian-African Community Taskforce, said the gang were “absolutely threat”.

    “Until we get them into custody they are an absolutely threat,” he told 3AW.

    “They have shown no signs of slowing down… the series of crimes have been horrendous for victims involved.”

    Victoria Police today released an image of one of the men, Ali Sari, in an effort to catch the gang. The 18-year-old is from the city of Shepparton in Victoria’s northeast.

    The crime spree includes an aggravated burglary in Bentleigh East on Sunday night and a carjacking on Anderson St in Port Melbourne last Sunday night, an aggravated burglary on Ivy Close in Derrimut just after 12am on Monday and an aggravated burglary in Mernda at about 4am this morning.

    Mr Bateson said the three alleged offenders had previously been involved in similar incidents.

    “They are known to us,” he said.

    “They have shown no signs of slowing down… the series of crimes have been horrendous for victims involved.”

    A 17-year-old was arrested over the incidents at a shopping centre yesterday. He has been charged with one count of aggravated burglary, three counts of home invasion, five counts of theft of motor vehicle and three counts of theft, and was remanded to appear at a children’s court at a later date.

    Mr Bateson said it was too early to tell if the crime spree was the reemergence of African youth crime as an issue.

    “This is a one-off incident that has been terrible — I don’t want to underplay it at all — but at the moment it’s four young men who have fallen into this horrific crime spree,” he said.

    “I’m not ready to call it a re-emergence of the issue.

    “Having said that … we never thought we had this beaten.”

    Anthony Albanese has demanded NSW senator Kristina Keneally be on his frontbench and that women are well represented on his team as the factions pick the shadow ministry.

    But the new Labor leader would not endorse Senator Keneally as the deputy Senate leader, after The Australian revealed on Monday South Australian senator Don Farrell was expected to retain the position.

    “I intend to be consultative, as a leader. I intend to talk issues through, as I have. I’ve made a number of my views very clear to the caucus. For example, Kristina Keneally will be a part of my team as far as I’m concerned. I’ve made that clear and I’ll continue to talk to that,” Mr Albanese said.

    Might be worthwhile to know just what type of crime “spree” these creatures have “fallen into”:

    The offence of burglary is aggravated if the person has with him or her a firearm, imitation firearm, offensive weapon, explosive, or imitation explosive. Aggravated burglary also occurs if, at the time of entering the building, someone else was present and the offender knew, or was reckless as to the fact.

    In other words these pieces of excrement were armed and there were victims in the house.

    But “one-off incident”.
