    “Look at the people of Deniliquin or Finley, all they have to sell is their labour for the day, their biggest assets are their homes – and we’re not talking about mansions, they might have been worth $350,000 and now they’re worth $200,000 or $180,000, because their homes have been devalued by the Plan.

    “Now you look at Glencore, you look at pension funds, you look at Ferrero Rocher, these are not champions of the community, in fact they’re not even part of it.”

    “We’re talking about working class Australian families,” he said.

    “The Murray Darling Basin Plan has created a class of refugee, one that is marooned in regional Australia, their homes have been devalued and they have no money or way of earning it, and they have limited skillsets that don’t necessarily satisfy modern society – and they’re Australians.”

    Mr Farley said corporate agriculture had been his career, and he had watched large companies gravitate into a sphere that was once the domain of families, with their fortunes controlled by individuals.

    [Peck] was a pacifist, an anti-Korean War activist and an anti-gunner, and refused to fire even a movie gun in the film.

    I call bullshit.
    He shot the radio attendants in The Guns of Navarone. In cold blood.

    In the interview I read some time ago (and which I now, of course, can’t find), he made it clear it was the Korean War he objected to, not WWII. He was also a staunch Democrat. When he played the lead role in “MacArthur”, he noted that his politics were diametrically opposed to those of the character he was portraying. He joined other Hollywood actors, including Kirk Douglas and jimmy Stewart, in support of the (USA) Gun Control Act of 1968, which led to the formation of the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

    I think it will end up with a negotiated settlement and Izzy will go play for an overseas club maybe even for Tonga but he will never represent Australia again. Not because I think he doesn’t want to but because it has almost been made impossible for him. Do you think any of our sports journalist who have been at the forefront of slandering him going to write excitedly about his selection or how will he in the national team played? They are busily engaging in a 21st century version of Roman damnatio. 0Maria has already said that the next World Cup will be her last and I suspect they would be keen to start a family.

    But the doctor hovering on the fringes and the scientific documents held in the participant’s hands, however, offer a hint that this is no ordinary dating event: for everyone attending has undergone a DNA test in a bid to find their best romantic match.

    It is bit of a myth that farmers in Australia were always small ma & pa business persons.

    Sure, you had the soldier settler scheme, but a lot of these were never viable.

    Farming was big business from time immemorial, John McArthur was a big deal. AACo started in 1824 (had to look it up) as a chartered company by the UK Parliament.

    I can’t see how Ferrero Rocher benefits from low allocations. They’re not truly competing with other farmers, they are vertically integrating their supply chain. Increasing their marginal cost cannot be helping them.

    Young trees need a lot of water, and consistently. The MDBA could ruin big businesses as well and make Australia look like a tin-pot dictatorship.

    President Trump vowed Thursday to try delaying the 2020 census after the Supreme Court blocked, for now, his administration’s plan to include a question that inquires about citizenship status.

    The court had said that the administration’s explanation for adding the question was insufficient and sent it back to the lower courts for further consideration. The ruling marked a major setback for the administration. While more lower-court litigation is possible, it would be difficult for the government to get the question on the census in time for the forms to be printed by their original self-declared summer deadline.

    Ravelry, which boasts 8 million members, announced the decision Sunday.

    “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy,” the site said. “Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.”

    Claiming to be Cherokee, contractors with white ancestry got $300 million

    Two years ago, when the mayor’s office in St. Louis announced a $311,000 contract to tear down an old shoe factory, it made a point of identifying the demolition company as minority owned.

    There was only one problem.

    Bill Buell, the owner of Premier Demolition Inc., has no verifiable claim to being a member of a minority group. His ancestors are identified as white in census and other government records. And his claim to being a Native American rests on his membership in a self-described Cherokee group that is not recognized as a legitimate tribe.

    Palaszczuk government will no longer appoint Pat O’Shane to Cape York welfare reform role

    BySarah Elks,
    Queensland Political Reporter

    The Palaszczuk government will no longer appoint Australia’s first Aboriginal magistrate Pat O’Shane to an influential Cape York welfare reform role, after she confirmed she fundamentally objected to the job’s key function.

    Queensland Deputy Premier and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Minister Jackie Trad has been forced to ask outgoing Family Responsibilities Commission boss David Glasgow to again delay his retirement to allow a “proper selection process” for the $400,000-year position.

    The move is a significant about-face for the government, and comes just days after Ms O’Shane gave an extraordinary radio interview confirming she had personally been approached by Ms Trad and her director-general Chris Sarra to take what Ms O’Shane described as the “job from hell.”

    Crucially, Ms O’Shane said she objected to the FRC’s power to quarantine the welfare payments of residents in five Cape York Aboriginal communities, describing it as an “extreme punishment”.

    She was due to start this Monday.

    The incendiary comments forced the Queensland government to delay appointing Ms O’Shane to the role, which was due to be signed off by the Palaszczuk Cabinet earlier this week.

    It is understood Ms O’Shane will now not be given the job.

    FRC local commissioners — respected elders from Aurukun, Mossman Gorge, Doomadgee, Hope Vale and Coen — said in a statement: “We welcome the government’s decision to reappoint David Glasgow and not proceed with the appointment of Pat O’Shane”.

    “She would have been an inappropriate appointment because she does not support the objectives of the FRC.”

    A spokesman for Ms Trad confirmed Mr Glasgow had been asked to stay on for a “further two months” while “an appointment to the FRC is finalised”.

    “Constructive discussions with Noel Pearson from the Cape York Institute were held this week regarding the FRC, welfare reform and partnerships with Cape York Communities,” the spokesman said.

    “We will continue to work with the Cape York Institute, the Commonwealth Government and all communities on the Cape to close the gap in outcomes for First Nations Queenslanders living in remote communities.”

    The commission — the brainchild of Cape York leader Mr Pearson and financially backed by the state and federal governments — ­operates in five indigenous communities on the far north Queensland peninsula.

    Local commissioners meet families and have the power to quarantine welfare payments if children skip school, if there are concerns a child is being harmed, if a parent is convicted of an offence, or if there is a domestic violence protection order against a parent.

    Mr Glasgow — the FRC’s founding commissioner — said he had again agreed to delay his retirement to ensure a “proper selection process” was undertaken to find his successor. He said he also wanted to be able to formally introduce his replacement to the local commissioners, and conduct an orderly handover.

    “I asked for that and said that was the basis upon which I would be willing to stay,” Mr Glasgow said.

    Aurukun local commissioner Vera Koomeeta welcomed the news and said she and her colleagues were “over the moon”.

    They of course went over the Moon in the aboriginal space craft which was perfected before the white fellahs got here.

  50. Deception is the signature of Satan.

    Satan has deceived many people into accepting and believing that by doing good works, they
    would have their spirit lifted from one lifetime to the next.

    Matthew 24 includes:

    And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.

    For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many.

    Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many.

    For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.

    2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 is most educational. Alas many pew-warmers can’t read.

    Use Social Media appropriately. By all means share your positive experiences of Rugby but do not use Social Media as a means to breach any of the expectations and requirements of you as a player contained in this Code or in any Union, club or competition rules and regulations.

    Do not otherwise act in a way that may adversely affect or reflect on, or bring you, your team, club, Rugby Body or Rugby into disrepute or discredit. If you commit a criminal offence, this is likely to adversely reflect on you and your team, club, Rugby Body and Rugby.

    Hearsay only.

    …and no less than King Henry VII and his queen, Elizabeth Tudor…who was the sister of the murdered boys…attended the trial. As Starkey has written, why would they go unless they had a vested and very personal interest in the man. Monarchs do not usually attend “trials for treason”.

    So two people went to a trial?

    Secondly Richard had a clear motive to murder the boys….legitimacy. After Richard crowned himself king…the boys disappeared and were never seen again. I think that is pretty solid evidence.

    It’s not evidence of anything. It’s just what happened.

    Just because two people disappear does not equal in law that SOMEONE had them murdered.

    Evidence is needed.

    Otherwise we may as well blame all the people who have disappeared in Oz on Ivan Milat.

    Monarchs do not usually attend “trials for treason”.

    Many Stewart Kings of the Scots (and at least one Queen, who was English) and later Stuart Kings of England and Scotland personally presided over and prosecuted their own kin for treason, and even personally did the torturing and final act of execution later on.

    Petty treason? They could not have been arsed.

    High treason (usually of a relative or other magnate who was a rival)? Sure, they had an interest to make sure the show trial worked just as planned.

    Rugby-Folau, RA headed for court after mediation fails

    SYDNEY, June 28 (Reuters) – Sacked Australia fullback Israel Folau is set to take his termination battle to the Federal Court after a failed conciliation hearing with Rugby Australia on Friday.

    Folau and his legal team met with RA at the Fair Work Commission in the first formal step of his unfair dismissal case but there was no resolution after a nearly four-hour hearing.

    “It appears as though, unless things change, that we will be heading to court,” Folau’s solicitor George Haros told reporters.

    Folau said: “Very, very disappointed about the outcome today but I’d like to thank all those that have supported me throughout this time and I’ll continue to stand up for the freedoms of all Australians.”

    Secondly Richard had a clear motive to murder the boys….legitimacy. After Richard crowned himself king…the boys disappeared and were never seen again. I think that is pretty solid evidence.

    I was always under the impression that there were others, up to, and including Henry Tudor, who had just as much motive for wanting the Princes in the Tower dead.

    Modern trial finds Richard III allegations not proved:

    Delivering his opinion at the conclusion of the mock trial, Chief Justice William Rehnquist found that there was too much “ambiguity as to when the murders took place” to convict Richard III. “There is a sufficient lapse of time even considering the evidence most favorable to the State as to put it beyond the time when Richard III was in control of things and into the time when Henry VII was in control of things,” the Chief Justice said.

    The Chief Justice also found that the “contemporary accounts,” which tend to incriminate Richard III, “are not worth much in a trial of this sort . . . because they are not made with first hand knowledge; they are kind of rumor on rumor . . . .”

    The Chief Justice of the United States was joined in his opinion by Professor Susan Hoffman Williams, a member of the Law School’s faculty.

    The Chief Justice and Justice Williams noted the high burden of proof the prosecution faced, under contemporary criminal law, of having to prove their case “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Even modifying that standard to “beyond a reasonable historical doubt,” however, the majority found that the prosecution had not proved its case.

    “If you had to choose between Richard and the Duke of Buckingham, and Henry VII as potential culprits in the case we would pick Richard,” the Chief Justice said, “but,” he continued, “it is just not enough in a case like this to say that the person is more likely to have done it than two others . . . . That does not meet the A1 beyond a reasonable doubt’ test. And so for that reason the Court by a majority vote finds for the respondent, Richard III.”

    Bernard G’s latest correspondence

    I write with bad news.

    Today the New South Wales Supreme Court ruled that Garry Burns’ complaints against me can continue.

    It means that I will now face three complaints in the NSW Local Court with another eight pending. All up that means I once again face massive fines, potentially up to $1.1 million for my views on marriage, family and morality. I may also be ordered to apologise for these views – which I will never do – and that carries the risk of being jailed for contempt of court.

    It is not a remote risk either. Burns was pursuing Victorian grandmother, Tess Corbett, for just that until the High Court ruling. Today’s judgement means it is possible he may start his actions against her again as well.

    It goes without saying that this is incredibly frustrating. It also means that the rulings I had obtained in the High Court are practically useless unless I am prepared to go all the way back there again – which I am prepared to do.

    However, this has just added years to this legal fiasco which will now drag into its sixth year and will come with a heavy financial burden.

    Right now, all my wife and I have left to fight this are our clothes, a banged up Hiace van, a second-hand car, about $20,000 in cash and the smiling faces of our eight children. And I just received a legal bill for $11,000 and it was for work done last year.

    I have another six months of legal bills headed my way as well, plus whatever comes now.

    In 2011 my wife and I were happily shelling out mortgages on two homes. Now we have almost nothing left.

    I guess that’s the cost of ‘free speech’ in Australia today – a country I was once prepared to fight on the battlefield for.

    Regardless of whether the courts rule that my support for the traditional family unit is unlawful, Burns has boasted that he intends to lodge enough complaints against me to bankrupt me. He is certainly close to achieving that.

    Thank you so much for your ongoing support and generosity. I cannot tell you how grateful we are for it.

    It is one reason I am so pleased about the massive public support Israel Folau has received. These battles are not easy and all of us will suffer if he loses or decides it is not worth the fight. And it is no different with regards to the battles we have toughed out and which continue to come our way.

    I’ll keep you updated and ask, if you are so inclined, that you continue to keep me and my family in your prayers as well.

    Kind regards,

These fucken star Chambers set precedencts in common law which are then used against bigger fish like Israel Folau. In some ways you need to remove small fry vexatious litigants as a priority as from these little seeds big trees grow. The lawyer who acted for RA in the code of conduct hearings also acted for Burns in his relentless pursuit of Bernard Gaynor.

    Never got to meet the fat socialist chick so no tales to tell. Partially because I suddenly got very busy. An email from a long last friend who we used to call “Animal” arrived. Living in Bangkok. A few emails back and forth and several more friends in the same region so dropped everything and booked a ticket, leave Monday.
    One pal spends 6/12 months in Pattaya. Not being overly familiar with Thailand I duckducked these cities and it seems they are the major fleshpots of the area. Animal I can understand heading for them but the others I just can’t. Anyway they’re all 60 this year and we’re having a low level reunion.
    During the search I discovered the 3rd Thai fleshpot is Patong which I visited last year, unaware of it’ reputation. If you haven’t been it can be very disconcerting walking down a street with a bevy of gorgeous Thai ladies soliciting you especially if you’re used to being happily ignored by fat, tattooed, pierced angry women closer to home. OK Cat ladies, close your eyes for the next bit which is every bit as true as any of my other stories.
    OK chaps, now the ladies aren’t listening, was pretty stiff from all the travel and as I wondered round the town, coming to the realization that these might be offering more than massages I was thinking to myself “Go on, Ted, be adventurous” when eventually I saw a massage therapist who looked the least likely to offer extras but, who, had she been in Oz, might just have stolen my heart, such was her mature beauty. So we negotiated a price, an hour massage-only for $15. Upstairs to a seedy cubicle when it began to dawn on me that I may have been misunderstood. Naked on my stomach at her insistence, approximately 23 seconds passed before the hard sell began but such were her kneading skills that I luxuriated in the first half hour and almost fell asleep. Slap on the arse and the instruction to turn over and it was ultimatum time.
    Got to admit I was tempted but lifelong personality traits came to the fore and for some reason I said, “look, love, you can shag me if you want but I’m a Yorkshireman and we don’t pay for it.” Suddenly it was like being married and there could only be one winner. Chucked out to the scowls of her colleagues, she still owes me half an hour. I just hope Animal has mellowed.

    Glorious day today in Ncl. I went for treadly ride up to Wallsend along the Tramway Track. At the place in the photo there were two yellow-tailed black cockatoos, who were looking for a nest tree. I’d quietly pedal up to them and they’d move to the next tree 20m further ahead. This went on for a hundred metres or more.

    Then only another 100m at the top of the hill I saw the grey bum of a bird entering a nest box that some kind person had attached to a tree next to the trail. What bird has grey undies? So I stopped and waited. After a while a galah emerged. Then a second one! So I kept very still to not disturb them.

    Whereupon a council truck appears driving up the shared path with a large lawnmower on the back. I edge bike over and off path. They arrive and guy says ‘you don’t have to get off the path for us, we have to for you!’ out his window (there’re two council wukkas in the truck). Thanks, says I.

    A new bill would calculate potential costs of reparations — and by Yahoo Finance estimates, these could reach as high as $17.1 trillion.

    Last week, the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution, Civil Rights and Civil Liberties held the first hearing in a decade on H.R. 40, the Commission to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African-Americans Act. The bill was first introduced in 1989 by former Congressman John Conyers (D-MI). Conyers reintroduced the bill each year until his retirement in 2017 — and each year, the bill languished in Congress.

    The bill’s focus was not to pass reparations, but to research the impact slavery had on black Americans and develop proposals for redress.

    Irrigators & environment dudded by Basin Authority

    The Australia Institute has released new research showing that the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) caused ecological harm and reduced water to irrigators when it caused floods at the ‘Barmah choke’ and drained the Menindee Lakes.

    “While everyone else in the Basin was dealing with drought, the MDBA created a flood and lost large volumes of water,” said Maryanne Slattery, Senior Water Researcher at The Australia Institute.

    “The artificial flood from August to January was not for environmental purposes, in fact it caused environmental harm. The out of season flooding eroded banks and damaged the internationally significant Barmah-Millewa forest.

    “This comes on the back of the MDBA’s draining of Menindee Lakes, which contributed to the summer fish kills and to less water available for users.

    “The MDBA’s management decisions have denied NSW Murray farmers, that are on zero water allocation, possibly over a million megalitres of water, or up to 61% of their licences.

    “This is not the drought, or the Basin Plan, it is the MDBA and the water market creating huge changes to the River Murray System.

    “New nut plantations backed by international investors are buying water away from industries, such as dairy, grain, fodder and rice.

    “We are letting the market decide the future of Australian agriculture and our Basin communities. The only regulation on the market is what buyers are willing to pay and the new nut plantations have exceeded the physical capacity of the system.

    “The Murray-Darling Basin Authority has prioritized new, mostly foreign owned nut plantations that won’t be fully productive for several years, over 4th and 5th generation farmers who are walking off their farms in droves.

    “This would not have happened if the MDBA had managed the river in line with its official obligations, which expressly prioritise water conservation.

    “Instead, MDBA has broken its own rules and NSW water holders are paying the price.”

    Why this is a looming catastrophy is that once the massive new plantations fully mature and come into full production, they will require massive water allocations every year.

    Come and go irrigation of pastures and annual crops can be rationed down in size. or even not grown in a dry year.

    Permanent plantings must have all their water every year, making opportunity irrigation a no water proposition so much more regularly that the infrastructure and logistics to support it are a financial burden in dry times.

    The huge new plantings are yet to mature into full water demand, but that day will come.

    What then?.

    I have been watching clips of US congresscritters over the last few days asking executives from Google and their pernicious tribe about clear and apparent example of systemic bias against conservatives, including elected officials. About a year ago, I watched the same, with different actors.

    Every time, like Lucy with the football, the Silicon Valley puppets steadfastly deny any such thing, claim that the examples are abberrations, ask to take questions on notice etc.

    This grandstanding, huffing and puffing by politicians may well play well in Peoria, but what stands out is that they have not done a damn thing.

    Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nada.

    They are complicit in their own destruction.

    A Google executive talked (on tape) about how the biggest worry about splitting up the company was that smaller companies would not be able to stop Trump. This was waved away with the usual excuses, ‘out of context’ yada yada. (see Breitbart Tech for details)

    There are a few Republicans like Jim Jordan and Marsha whatsername who get it, but most of them are either stupid or compromised – perhaps both.

    That is the big table, but you have to wonder how this plays out at the kids table here.

    LEAK: New Google RESIST Doc Shows “Internal Beginner’s Guide To Protesting,” “[email protected]New York) — Project Veritas has obtained a document from an insider at Google which appears to show internal suggestions of how to protest political events.

    Said Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe:

    “This document leak is the fourth in a series of leaks from inside Google and their subsidiary, YouTube. This new document appears to show internal coordination of political protests which contradicts Google’s public statements that they are politically neutral.

    The Australia Institute has released new research showing that the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) caused ecological harm and reduced water to irrigators when it caused floods at the ‘Barmah choke’ and drained the Menindee Lakes.

    Wikipedia is not my source of choice but at least for these gay demographics they do cite credible sources. We might have about 3% of people who self identify as gay-ish based on a sample, but certainly not 10.
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_sexual_orientation.

    But it gets more interesting when you look at the actual sources. For example the latest survey according to Wikipedia was done by Roy Morgan:
    http://www.roymorgan.com/findings/6263-exactly-how-many-australians-are-gay-december-2014-201506020136

    June 02 2015 Finding No. 6263 Topic: Press Release Country: Australia

    It should be a simple question: how many people are homosexual? But, as Roy Morgan Research has found, getting a straight answer is still problematic—and the number just keeps growing.

    Between 2006 and 2014 Roy Morgan Research asked almost 180,000 Australians (14+) to agree or disagree to the statement, “I consider myself a homosexual”. In 2006-08, around 1 in 42 people (2.4%) agreed. By 2009-11, this had risen to around 1 in 32 (3.1%). And during the latest triennium 2012-2014, the figure was higher again, at around 1 in 29 (3.4%).

    The proportion of people who say they are homosexual is increasing across all age groups, but inconsistencies remain: 4.6% of Australian teenagers (14-19) now agree they are homosexual (up from 2.9% in 2006-08), rising to a peak of around 1 in 15 people in their 20s (6.5%, up from 4.4% in 2006-08). From there, the rate declines to 4.2% of those in their 30s (up from 2.5%), to 2.8% in their 40s (up from 2.4%), down to less than 1 in 55 people aged 50+ (1.7%, up from 1.3%).

    And so on and a closer look at the figures reveal some interesting phenomenon as the report goes on to note. For example it looks like a third of people de-homosexualize as they get older. Do they? Or is asking a 14-year-old if they are gay really going to give you any reasonable answer. Or is it haps because these cohorts have homosexuality shoved down their throats and school.

    The other b******* that this guy promulgated was that it was wrong to suggest that homosexuality is a choice. Says who? Well then you’re also going to have to explain this gender fluidity and also have to explain why it is that some gay and lesbians choose to leave that particular lifestyle. If you are born gay or lesbian or whatever then is it genetic and if so is it a genetic defect and if so, can people test for gayness and abort gay babies if they choose to, just like they choose to abort Down syndrome children? My understanding was that the gay lobby gave up on the idea of a gay gene many years ago because they knew those were the questions that we’re going to start coming. But if you going to insist that people are just born that way anyway, yeah either going to have to account for the purpose of gayness in evolutionary Theory and also account for the disappearing gayness. The words grooming and ideation come to my mind.

    It was horrifying to look up the guy Rita was talking to and find out he’s a. a child psychologist b. a regular on Sunrise and c. nevertheless spouting this bullshit about 10% of young people being lgbtqi plus whatever other fuckwitted category Marxist gender theorists come up with. He’s thought policing on Prince William was also rather chilling . How dare the prince make a suggestion that this may be a choice. If his own punch-drunk assertions weren’t bad enough, his Twitter feed does not encourage me to send any kid to him for counselling either. I be at risk of brainwashing.

    THE Murray River’s capacity to deliver water to irrigators, the environment and South Australia is rapidly being eroded, dropping from a daily limit of 10,600 megalitres more than a decade ago to just 9300ML today.

    Irrigators have warned the four shallow reaches that make up the Barmah Choke are silting up and their banks eroding, cutting daily maximum flows.

    Wakool River Association chairman John Lolicato said the push to drive ever greater volumes of environmental and irrigation water through the choke was eroding its banks and reducing its capacity.

    “You just can’t get more water through now, without it tipping (over the bank) into the forest floodplain,” Mr Lolicato said

    The State plan for the clearances of the tories from the electorates of the irrigation districts has seem mismanagement of the Barmah choke to the point that it is changing from a deeper channel system to a shallower wider ditch with slumping banks and silting where the eroded bank material comes to rest.

    Catastrophists suggest that this is how river systems change their river beds. When the next big flood comes it just may carve a new path if it can’t fit down the old one.

    Frank – Not as good for directed search as Goolag, but better than Goolag on haram searches. With DDG I don’t get oodles of ads for whatever I just searched for. Most searches I do on DDG, ut maybe 1 in 50 I have to go to Goolag because their spiders are faster or their contextual search algos are better.

    They do use Goolag plugins for stuff like PDFs, so data is probably still getting back to they who are not evil.

    There’s two approaches to google adwords which is where google makes all its money.

    you can ignore them, which is what I do %99.99 of the time or you can just click on them with gay abandon, this will cost the advertisers and will drive down the value of the clicks, ultimately if enough people do it, it will hurt google’s bottom line. This is what I am going to start to do.

    starting a ‘click on google ads campaign’ would seriously undermine the value of google adwords.

    secondly our government needs to get involved with google australia and it’s australian search engine and youtube bias. clearly it is a biased left wing crock of shit and should not have any protection under the telecommunications act as a carrier since it is clearly a publisher.

    Findings

    Of the 10 flavonoids tested, fisetin was the most potent senolytic. Acute or intermittent treatment of progeroid and old mice with fisetin reduced senescence markers in multiple tissues, consistent with a hit-and-run senolytic mechanism. Fisetin reduced senescence in a subset of cells in murine and human adipose tissue, demonstrating cell-type specificity. Administration of fisetin to wild-type mice late in life restored tissue homeostasis, reduced age-related pathology, and extended median and maximum lifespan.
    Interpretation

    The natural product fisetin has senotherapeutic activity in mice and in human tissues. Late life intervention was sufficient to yield a potent health benefit. These characteristics suggest the feasibility to translation to human clinical studies.

    Late life intervention was sufficient to yield a potent health benefit.

    Code of Conduct – Players (p.6)
    1.3 Treat everyone equally, fairly and with dignity regardless of gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, cultural or religious background, age or disability. Any form of bullying, harassment or discrimination has no place in Rugby.

    1.7 Use Social Media appropriately. By all means share your positive experiences of Rugby but do not use Social Media as a means to breach any of the expectations and requirements of you as a player contained in this Code or in any Union, club or competition rules and regulations.

    1.3 ‘Treat everyone equally, fairly and with dignity’ suggests an “in-person” relationship with “primary” relationship factors such as facial expression, body language and other non-verbal indicators providing valuable feedback. For how can a person know whether what they have said or done is done ‘equally, fairly and with dignity’ if the relationship is absent these cues, which is the case with on-line connections?

    Further up the thread there’s been a bit of a stoush between None and Frank because of a perceived/actual confusion over sarcasm that took a number of posts between the two to resolve/not resolve the confusion.

    Also, being able to gauge whether everyone is being treated equally, fairly and with dignity requires that comparisons can be made between multiple subjects. Unless those relationships are conducted in person no objective evaluation of whether the response to the other person(s) was done equally fairly or with dignity can be determined.

    But if RA is presuming that relationships of this type can include one’s on-line presence then RA is suggesting the possibility of relationships countless in number. This would be impossible in scope to manage equally and fairly or with dignity, for what person on social media has managed a way to give equal time to all their “friends”? The result of which is occasional hurt feelings and significant misunderstandings. (You didn’t “like” my umpteenth cat video?)

    As to the admonition against bullying, harassment and discrimination. Claims like these would require an actual plaintiff rather than a disembodied group identity, I would think.

    1.7 ‘…share your positive experiences of Rugby…’. Nothing is mentioned beyond Rugby, i.e. outside of the sport. And further clarification is offered in that clause with the player’s relationship to the Rugby structure etc, ‘any Union, club or competition rules and regulations’, so the constraint over the player is within that structure. Moreover, the use of the term ‘positive’ creates ambiguity. For Israel, his warnings to all those sinners is to offer a way back, which is a message of redemption, and this is what is at the heart of the gospel. Since “gospel” means Good News, for him his message can only be one that is positive in nature.

    Shouting “Russia is an occupier” and burning photos of Russian President Vladimir Putin, demonstrators gathered outside the parliament one week ago.

    Google ‘working on censored search engine’ for China (Aug 2018)
    Google’s censored search engine for China is sparking a moral crisis within the company (Sep 2018)

    An internal battle is playing out at Google’s offices in Silicon Valley and around the globe.

    After news leaked in August that the company was secretly developing a censored search engine for China, more than 1,400 employees have signed a letter demanding more transparency and accountability about the project’s potential impact on human rights. The controversy has reportedly prompted at least five Google employees to quit in protest.

    Now Google is reportedly cracking down on employees who say the tool will also allow a Chinese partner to closely track and monitor users.

    The search engine under development, known as Dragonfly, is designed to hide search results that China’s authoritarian government wants to suppress, such as information about democracy, free speech, peaceful protest, and human rights, according to an investigation published in August by the Intercept.

    I’m glad they dropped their ‘don’t be evil’ motto. It helps clarify things.

    Bernard has to start playing this smart; first he has to transfer whatever funds/assets he has left to his wife. Secondly he has to reach an arrangement with his lawyers to proceed on a no win no pay basis. Thirdly he has to drag Burns into another jurisdiction where initially he can turn the tables on him in making him bankrupt. Bankrupts have limited capacity to litigate but more importantly he needs another Judgment against Burns so when Burns goes to the HRC Gaynor can claim jurisdictional superiority.

    I know you’re trying to be serious Bar Beach and apart from the fact I never want to meet Frank the fuckwit, I would despise him just as much, if not more and have no intention of treating him with anything except contempt.

    But seriously now from me and perhaps I’m about to say more or less the same thing as you: where the hell do these people get off telling you how you should behave towards everyone? I don’t have to like everyone nor treat everyone “fairly.” In what sense? By whose standard? I know these COC are deliberately worded broadly to give employers lots ofleeway but that’s why I’ve also seen them used as weapons to destroy so many people. Because they are so easy to use against people and so difficult to defend against and they always work against the employee.

    Peter Ridd, for example, got lucky with his COC because JCU were just beyond fuckwits. Not only did they have a badly worded COC, but I mean when you get to the point of actually telling people not to talk to their wife, you’re not talking normal people. Even so, he had to raise $200,000 to defend himself and even now we can see it hasn’t made any difference because they are still f****** lunatics. COCs are always gamed against the employee. Always.

    I don’t know what the answer is but I think a really good start would be to just to get rid of codes of conduct and try something else.

    YouTube Bans Video of Undercover Google Investigation

    Some commenters found it unsurprising that Google-owned video hosting platform YouTube would take action to censor the most recent Google investigation by Project Veritas as it could prove very damaging to the company going forward. In the video, Google executive Jen Gennai made multiple damaging comments about the company to undercover Project Veritas investigators, stating:

    “We all got screwed over in 2016, again it wasn’t just us, it was, the people got screwed over, the news media got screwed over, like, everybody got screwed over so we’re rapidly been like, happened there and how do we prevent it from happening again.

    We’re also training our algorithms, like, if 2016 happened again, would we have, would the outcome be different?”

    This company shouldn’t be just broken up, it should be atomised.

    “As for the Princes in the Tower…there is strong evidence of Richard’s involvement. Sir James Tyrrell confessed to the murders at his trial for treason in 1502

    There’s a great book called ‘The Daughter of Time’ by Josephine Tey that, while a novel, dissects this mystery. Her conclusion is that it was not Richard. Instead she argues that it was Henry VII. His claim to the throne was extremely tenuous. He married the princes’ sister, thus seeking to strengthen that claim. He got rid of every other claimant, e.g. the Pole family.

    From Wikipedia ‘There never was a Bill of Attainder, Coroner’s inquest, or any other legal proceeding that contemporaneously accused – much less convicted – Richard III of any foul play against the Princes in the Tower. It also points out that the princes were not reported missing by anyone until after the Battle of Bosworth Field, by which time Richard was dead and the princes were now in Henry VII’s custody in the Tower.’

    The ogre portrayal of Richard arises from Shakespeare writing during the Tudor period. Richard, by all contemporary accounts, was a great administrator who was loved by his people. Edward IV, it is claimed, was bigamously married to Elizabeth Woodville, thus making her children illegitimate. For Henry VII that could not be acceptable because he drew much of his claim to the throne through his wife, Elizabeth, the daughter of Edward. The book is a great read

    Bruce, a lot of this has been out for years.

    My point is, they don’t do anything. They huff and puff, and complain, but they don’t do a damn thing.

    Why is that?

    Zulu, if the litigant wins he can’t be vexatious.

    The day ends with Pell behind bars

    George will be rereading all those letters Paul wrote whilst unjustly in gaol.
    After a busy life I suspect he is enjoying time with the words of Jesus and the prophets and apostles.
    He’ll probably be praying for his enemies too.
    As we do in Christ’s flock.

    Cohenite, he’d be really negligent if he hasn’t already done 1; lawyers don’t take on no win no fee cases unless they think there’s a reasonable chance they will win and get paid and in the case of someone like this homosexualist activist it’s not as if he’s got money to pay his costs – I think Bernard did win costs against him at some stage but all he does is just Lodge more complaints. (Remember when the homosexualist activist even wanted the New South Wales government to pick up his tab). The homosexualist activist however has had many pro bono glbt lawyers work for him because they wanted to set these precedents, which they have, and in some sense they are using this activist as a stooge. And 3. is a definite and I think BG just doesn’t want to destroy this homosexualist activist but get at the f***s in the anti-discrimination boards etc. He’s got a good chance now with Mark Latham asking questions so maybe now is the time to also bite the bullet and go after this guy’s gonads metaphorically speaking and just put an end to this nonsense and then sit on politicians to provide protection against vexatious litigants like him and to clean out these disgusting kangaroo courts. And remember it’s this guy does it go after DG Hill go after the grandma in Victoria or he’ll go after the mentally incapacitated guy.

    The first and foremost duty of any government has to protect its citizens and that includes protecting citizens from other citizens and then New South Wales government has failed and failed and failed in this regard.

    Bruce on the surface that is a lovely sentiment but I am livid that an innocent man is behind bars and locked up in a cell 23 hours a day because of a pack of f****** liars. And that he has to remain there on a pile of over-privileged overpaid judges go off on holidays because they can’t make a decision on something juries made a decision on in days. Sorry but I cannot forgive my country for the injustice done to Pell.

  218. None

    Someone earlier on posted the link to the New South Wales parliament website which gave the answers to questions put forward buy Mark Latham re how many cases had this homosexualist activist and another cereals muesli litigant lodged in the last X number of years and also what protections were there against vexatious litigants. The replies are astonishing in that everything is secret and no there is no protection. If someone remembers the link it would be good to repost it.

    He got rid of every other claimant, e.g. the Pole family.

    There’s a good account of the fall of the Pole family in “The Last White Rose” by Desmond Seward. Henry VII and Henry VIII waged a fairly savage secret war against the family.

    Hello Google.

    I wonder if they will nuke this video again?

    In Perth on Wednesday with 10,700 km extra on the vehicle since I left Sydney.
    Get your car serviced every 10,000 km they said.
    Use the company that did a good job last time I was in Perth I tells meself.
    So I drive over to the service department.
    Eventually get to the relocated service department after missing the turn, going back and get stuck waiting for a train to transit the level crossing only to find the previous driveway service has gone. I follow the sign that says service department and end up facing a sign that say no entry. Reverse direction and see a sign pointing back.
    Follow the sign back and see the previous no entry sign and in a think-
    ‘Fuck it’ so I drive into the workshop.
    The head goblin appears –‘You can’t park here’
    ‘Why not, it’s where you service the fucking vehicles isn’t it?’
    The discussion progresses and I am directed back to the reception.
    The paperwork is in order and my whinging about the lack of signs and process is cut short by an offer to drive us back to our apartment.
    We wait 30 minutes then get in a Corolla. One swarthy gentleman joins us then a scruffy bearded bloke walks up and a girl asks us to shuffle over to fit him in.
    He takes one look, sez
    ‘Fuck this shit, I’m getting a Uber’ and starts tapping on his phone.
    We set off in the opposite direction and 10km later after crossing various major roads and the same train track accompanied by my teeth grinding we drop off Mr Swarthy.
    We now head back but there’s a catch-not enough fuel to get to our apartment so we have to go back to the service department. This increases my teeth grinding which then peaks as we have to wait for another bloody train at the same crossing.
    One hour after booking the car in we are back exactly where we started except I’m seething. I decide I would feel better if I shared my feelings with someone in the office so I march in to see the girly that booked me in.
    She starts ‘How may I help…………………wwwhat are you doing back here?’
    In a raised voice I explain my angst keeping the expletives to a minimum in deference to the listening womenfolk before demanding to see the manager-who happened to be the workshop goblin.
    I patiently explain that he has several ways of organising his shop and all of them are better than the shit way it’s being done.
    The predictable response……..’We’ll take it on board’.

    It’s “Friday Blokes Night” at the Cat. Stop your whining and whinging.

  223. Knuckle Dragger

    Ah, the old ‘we’ll take it on board’.

    Enigma coded for ‘We’ve already got your car on the hoist with bits taken off it, so go fuck yourself.’

  224. Infidel Tiger

    “We’ll take it on board”

    That’s the motto at the reception in hell!

    There’s a good account of the fall of the Pole family in “The Last White Rose” by Desmond Seward.

    Pole is good value in Kingmaker. He comes with lots of Isle of Man men. Fun boardgame. There’s a free PC DOS version of it if you want to do some serious config.sys and autoexec.bat work on a truly fossilized Virtual PC partition if you have one. I probably even have a disk somewhere, but the all night boardgame sessions were better fun.

  226. Rafe:

    Windwatch update, at the peak just after 6 Wind was running at 45% of capacity, delivering 3GW that represented 11% of demand.

    So we can close another two generators – for long term maintenance, of course.

  227. Infidel Tiger

    Getting the car serviced Thursday.

    Will probably cop the same

    Not to be trusted-they bear watching at all times.

    Well, couldn’t afford as much as you blokes, but sent the best I could to BG. This shit has to be stopped!

  231. Armadillo

    Why the hell are you servicing a car after 10,000 Km anyway?

    You pay for those lights that flash up on the dashboard. It’s part of the deal when you buy a car.

    What are you driving? A Model A?
