    Calli – I have a dig and a laugh at all religions. I don’t, however, laugh at the Holocaust and my family members who were murdered. Apparently it’s ok to here.

    I’ve never seen any comments suggesting so.

    Have I missed something?

    5 High Profile Cryptocurrency Hacks

    None of them are hacks on the crypto algorithm (and you knew that, right).

    My Gox itself got hacked … this is like saying I found fifty bucks blowing down the road after someone dropped it and I picked up the fifty and stuffed it in my pocket, therefore hacking the entire cash system. Of course people lose cash for various reasons, shit happens but that makes no difference to how cash operates.

    The Ether / DAO thing was essentially a confidence trick, asking people to buy into a scheme. That happens with all money, it isn’t a “flaw” in the money, it’s that people will buy into risky ideas and hey, risky stuff is sometimes risky. Both sides of the Etherium fork are running just fine, but some people learned to be a bit more careful.

    The Bitfinex servers got hacked with is just regular theft really. In comparison, credit cards get stolen all the time, there is massive theft.

    As for bad contracts, that happens in every system … you can write a bad contract denominated in AUD … find yourself in front of a judge and lose. The only difference with Etherium is that it happens faster and more reliably.

  10. Stimpson J. Cat

    Stimpy, is she mentally ill?

    I actually don’t like the term “Mentally Ill”,
    as it can quite offensive, triggering and stigmatizing to those of us with Mental Illness.
    I think a more appropriate and less confronting way to phrase the question would be:

    “Stimpy, is she Sanity Challenged?”

    My answer if course is this:

    She is a Woman. 😁

    Announcing the results of the first-ever Cat Q&A held yesterday (see page 3 comment 3206871).
     
    And the Winner is
    (drum roll)
    Percy Popinjay (see page 3 comment 3206880)
    First past the post with a 6/6 score and receives a Cat-a-Trophy.
     
    Tintarella (see page 3 comment 3206887)
    Gets the Runner-up Ribbon.
     
    Of course, most answers would be as expected of dedicated Cats. However, Q5 was a trick question – sort of.
    There was the brainwashing campaign on the streets and via a particular radio station (previously Conservative, now semi-woke) how to vote below the line for this very,very worthy candidate. When that didn’t get the required result, it turned to blackmail (pick our man, or else ……..)
     
    And so it came to pass …
    This afternoon, despite being rejected by the Catservative Selection Committee, a non-Conservative has been pre-selected by the Conservative NSW faction.
     
    The next Cat Q&A will be announced after a discussion by the committee. In order to ensure a level playing field with the other Q&A show, the Cat version will be stacked with Conservatives.
     
    Suggestions for questions can sent be to:
    The Cat Broadcasting Corporation

    Multiply this by two and add in the 2FA.

    It would take billions of years to crack, times two.

    With a supercomputer.

    All that gets you is someone’s wallet.

    How much did that supercomputer cost? 390 million USD. That is capital costs alone.

    You cannot “hack the system” because it is not “a” system, it is a distributed system. Fraud can only happen on the blockchain if you can get proof of work from more than half of the blockchain.

    Supply and demand make this impossible.

  19. The electricity cost of that supercomputer would be insane, given the life of the calculations.

    Yes, and the bank vault was safe, it’s just the lock was shit right?

    I couldn’t care less what loophole they used to get in to ‘the system’, or whether the purists/fanatics insist the vault wasn’t penetrated, the money is still gone. Dress that up however you want, the fact remains that companies who do this for a living and presumably know a hell of a lot more about it than the layman had millions stolen from them while making cryptocurrency transactions.

    To be fair, I’m not anti-cryptocurrency. It’s just another investment opportunity and I own shares in the manufacturers of the chipsets and processors cryptocurrency operations consume like popcorn. But I’m not putting my money into CC.

    I don’t buy what they are selling but I’m happy they are buying what I’m selling to them.

    No Crypto has been hacked yet but one by one they will be. The great fault of cryptos is that they are static. Everything is backwards verified, once it is forward verified it then becomes part of backward verification.
    When someone manages to plant a prong in between two transactions it then has both backwards and forwards verification. It has the magic gold pass . Let slip the dogs of moolah. Verification is the word, and every server around the world will say “Welcome”.

    Point being that all the miners compete with one another to reverse that big hash, and they get paid to demonstrate how close they can get. Any time someone gets a small advantage over the others, this person can make money.

    Therefore if there was a way to beat it, this most likely would be revealed already. Should there be someone who knows how to beat it, and for reason best know to themselves has not revealed it, then it would have to be a closely guarded secret, never been used. Perhaps such a person is waiting for a future opportunity … but why?

    Everything is backwards verified, once it is forward verified it then becomes part of backward verification.

    If the miners have consensus they can change the future algorithm and simply put an agreed upon switching point in the code to support back compatibility.

    For example, the change in blocksize that led to a “hard fork” could have been a consensus operation where no fork happened. Earlier blocks (already written) would be small, while newer blocks would be large.

    I note with interest some bloke called Gideon Haigh has taken up the cudgels against Margaret Court because he doesn’t like her opinion, and how dare she.

    Actually Haigh wrote an excellent column last week about stupid safety rules creeping into areas it shouldn’t be, in particular suburban cricket clubs.

    However he is of course a sports writer, so that burst of common sense only lasted a week (and only because it affected him personally). The comparison between his treatment of the great Margaret Court and the perverted Peter Roebuck is enlightening. Here is his Obituary of Roebuck. Doesn’t even mention his perversion or how he died.

There are a myriad of disagreements between its supporters over what they should build, but virtual unity over what they should destroy.

    When we fail to carry out controlled fuel reduction burns, nature always eventually steps in to do the job for us. Often with catastrophic and deadly results.

    Any communication security is breakable since by definition it must allow some communication while excluding unauthorised data flow. Therefore anyone with the ability can in theory break into the data transfer and storage.

    Fukem. Going to organise a huge meat easting barbie with endless booze for the firies, and invite the Green marxists from the local rag to cover the debauched event. Stand by for new bi-laws.
    When we first arrived at the evac center, it was dominated by CatchmentAuthority trough snufflers who had to evacuate first because they lived in dangerous locations.
    As more normies arrived, the council funded commos were shocked when real folks accused them for being responsible for the fires.
    It was quite obvious that they had never before been confronted by folks outside of their grant financed bubble. They were impossibly arrogant in response.
    Speaking to them at breakfast. A retired town clerk, his wife who spent her whole career obtaining grants to examine local weeds or summit, and a bunch of loudmouth nobodies who appear to control the local council through control of the local free rag. Horrible, horrible peopl e.

I’m a laundry addict. I get inordinate pleasure out of transforming my toddler’s mud- and applesauce-covered clothes into freshly laundered, neatly folded piles. And yet, I may hold off on washing this T-shirt for another few weeks. It miraculously looks (and smells!) like it was just cleaned. This $65 T-shirt is made by a startup called Unbound Merino, founded in 2016, that creates wool travel clothes that can go weeks without being washed.

    Another thought:

    The free rags, otherwise known as stocking stuffers on bin night, are free because they are entirely reliant on advertising, and local advertising at that. Much more so than the rags that cost to buy, they are beholden to the punters that fork out (God knows why) to put their ads in said rag, which consequently becomes a box of shit known as advertorial.

    Local nuffies control rag. Rag dependent on ad money. No ad money because nuffies. No free rag. Nuffies now without microphone. Nuffies can get fucked.

    In a Seoul subway station, a smart farm sprouts

    The future could see farms without farmers – automated agriculture, boxed up and set to go anywhere, anytime

    With agricultural sectors massively subsidized globally, with threats posed by pesticides and herbicides raising international concerns and with chemical-free organic farming a hugely risky undertaking, could the future see the sector move off the farm and into a box?

    An underground, vertical smart farm established last month in – of all places – a Seoul subway station points to one possible solution.

    In Sangdo, a subway station serving a southern Seoul residential neighborhood, Korea’s first “Metro Farm” – an urban, underground smart farm – opened on September 23. A second has just started operation and two more are under construction and will open by the end of the year.

    People are cruel, Lizzie. I was knocked mercilessly in high school because mum cleaned and took in ironing. And dad was a tradesman. One thing they taught me – there is dignity in even the most menial work.

    I think I was about 14 and it just so happened that it was my turn to go to Mums for the school holidays – it was actually an Uncles place but he let Mum live there for when he was away on the ships. Mum was the school cleaner back in the days when such jobs were ‘reserved ‘ for widows/single parents etc.
    She came home from the RSL where she did a bit of part time in the kitchen when there was a special do on. Now she was pretty upset about something but wouldn’t say what it was. She went to her room and I heard her scratching around in the cupboard.
    Then I heard her crying. Of course I went to see if I could help with whatever it was that had upset her.
    Mum was sitting on the floor and had her violin in her hands. It had obviously succumbed to the humidity and the glue and stuff had given up the ghost, and the violin had come apart when she took it out of the case.
    Eventually the story came out and when she’d brought the food out to the dining room, the young fellow whose 21st it was started singing that Sadie song by John Farnham, and everyone joined in.
    Background: Mum had been accepted into the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in ’38.
    When the war started, she decided to do her bit, and was in Cowra packing parachutes and supplies for the boys in New Guinea.
    After the war, Mum met Dad and they had five kids – it was obviously too much for her and she suffered from post natal depression badly. She couldn’t go back to the Conservatorium and continue her studies and Dad couldn’t deal with the whole lot either. He worked on the Snowy Project and one day didn’t come home.
    They put us five in the kids home and called her “An Unfit Mother.”
    Bastards.
    I think the room singing the Sadie song was enough to break her – she rarely laughed or even smiled after that.

    People can be bloody cruel.

    Indulge me while I make just one more point before we move back to circumcision, gay porn, its effect on ladeees and other topics du jour.

    Murray used the term ‘culture war’ tonight, sort of on topic with the fires. I think he’s half right.

    Right now around the country tens of thousands of people are debating this, with varying degrees of decorum on both sides. Greenies, grant-seekers and inner city types who’ve never walked on anything other than concrete say it’s climate change. Everybody else, ie all reasonable punters say it’s fuckwit greenie policies at Federal, State and local government levels (which of course it is). For the vast majority of us, this would fall broadly into the definition of a culture war, or battle at least.

    But for Bubbles and his neighbours, and those about to cop it in the next couple of days, it isn’t about a culture war at all.

    It’s about fucking survival.

    The Coalition and Labor are on an equal electoral footing for the first time since the May election, with a turnaround in Anthony ­Albanese’s personal standing and a slide in popular support for the government.

    An exclusive Newspoll conducted for The Australian has the major parties tied with a 50-50 share of the two-party-preferred vote as Scott Morrison grapples with the drought and a flattening economy.

    The poll follows the release of the Coalition’s $1bn-plus drought relief package last Thursday amid criticism the government was not doing enough, coupled with Labor attacks on economic management.

    Despite the public release of Labor’s damning internal review into its election loss, Labor’s primary vote rose two points to 35 per cent.

    The Labor leader’s satisfaction ratings also rose to a post-election high of 42 per cent.

    Newspoll shows the Coalition’s primary vote slumping two points to 40 per cent — its lowest point since before the election — but Mr Morrison saw a narrow improvement in his personal numbers.

    Calli – I have a dig and a laugh at all religions. I don’t, however, laugh at the Holocaust and my family members who were murdered. Apparently it’s ok to here.

    I’ve never seen any comments suggesting so.

    Have I missed something?

    Nor have I – especially tonight. Is a reference to all those others the Nazis murdered “anti-semitic”?
    The Nazis did start with the “mentally ill” and worked their way on from there. So what’s the problem??

    Sumo wrestling: fighting to get women in the ring
    Hiyori Kon, 22, is an amateur sumo wrestling champion in Japan where women are still barred from competing professionally.

    Hiyori is hoping to change the rules of one of the world’s oldest sports, and give a voice to women in sumo.

    She is one of the BBC’s 100 Women 2019 and the subject of award-winning film Little Miss Sumo, which tells her story.

    Iran discovers new oil field with 50 billion barrels of crude

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on Sunday said a new oil field was discovered in the Khuzestan province.

    He said the new field has more than 50 billion barrels of crude oil, which would boost the country’s proven reserves by a third.

    The above policies would cost the taxpayer nothing. The benefits to society would be large. The cost to the environment would be marginal but totally ameliorated by virtue of being renewable.

    The point is why isn’t Australia doing both; huge reserves of uranium and thorium and uptapped oil reserves:

    Brisbane company Linc Energy yesterday released two reports, based on drilling and seismic exploration, estimating the amount of oil in the as yet untapped Arckaringa Basin surrounding….3.5 to 233 billion barrels of oil.

    Loudmouth from overseas continues ranting in Oz:

    Egyptian-American author Mona Eltahawy was apparently just warming up on Q&A last week. At a Melbourne feminism festival on Sunday, her outrage-o-meter dialled up another couple of notches.

    Scott Morrison is a “white ­supremacist Christian evangelical” and a “wannabe Trump”, Eltahawy told an audience of 2000 at Melbourne Town Hall, to claps and cheers.

    She lambasted white women, a considerable portion of the crowd, for being the “foot soldiers of the patriarchy”, urging them to “burn the patriarchy down”.

    And, finally, she invited the crowd to stand and shout as one, “F..k the patriarchy”, and shout they did.

    The Wheeler Centre’s feminism festival, Broadside, promised “two days of an unapologetically feminist agenda”, and Eltahawy was certainly unapologetic.

    Her expletive-laden performance on the ABC Q&A program last Monday and her question “How many rapists must we kill?” to stop men murdering, beating and raping women led to 200 complaints to the ABC, the show being yanked off Iview and an ABC investigation into a potential breach of editorial standards.

    On Sunday, she took to the stage in a full-length sequined coat, and quickly dispensed with any notion of contrition for the Q&A performance. “I want to start by saying I’m wearing sequins ­because this is my way of saying f..k the patriarchy,” she said. “This is what I would wear if I was dancing on the grave of misogyny and patriarchy, especially here in Australia, which you have plenty of.”

    The visiting journalist, author and social commentator, a US resident, continued her full-frontal foray into domestic matters.

    “Ask yourself what does it mean to live in one of the richest countries in the world, where you have a white supremacist Christian evangelical prime minister who is appealing to a certain demographic in your country, who wants to ban boycotts and protests,” she said. “Your Prime Minister is like a mini-Trump, a wannabe Trump, and Trump is a wannabe dictator. This is supposed to be a democracy.”

    Eltahawy told the audience her swearing was a calculated political act, part of her “radical rudeness”.

    She was also highly critical of white women for failing to appreciate that their proximity to whiteness is a form of power and privilege in itself.

    Asked by an audience member whether it was possible to use white privilege to change attitudes to women from within the system, Eltahawy urged her to “find ways every day to defy, disobey and ­disrupt”.

    Bet she’d be the first to complain of an audience of males stood up and chanted similar things.

    The hypocrisy of such people condemns them more than anything else they do.

    Yuendumu residents grieve loss of teenager Kumanjayi Walker after police shooting

    Hundreds of shocked and angry Yuendumu residents have gathered in the community where a teenager was shot by police on Saturday night seeking answers and justice.

    And now, in line with my current disposition towards greenies and their wanton disregard for human life, the Wayne Harmes coverup and now the possibility that Mona will leave these shores with her face unpunched in, I’m off to the farter to reread one of my faves about the last gasps of the Third Reich in Berlin, 1945.

  101. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Winston, that is such a sad tale about your mum. Five kids in difficult circumstances is enough to send anyone downhill. The lost opportunities she suffered would always have rankled too. How sad that people were so cruel and disparaging about her. I got teary at the busted violin tale. Tough for you to grow up like that and then become the sort of wise carer you became in your career. Kudos.

    My nana was a charlady. A tough life, but she was indomitable, whereas my mum with three young ones under four and only 23 years old in a new country with my difficult dad her nemesis, well, she just gave in to the voices. Nana would have gone charring and struggled through with it, tongue chipping my dad or tossing him out. I hope I am more like her, I looked a lot like a photo of her as an 18 year old.

    I guess our kids will have their tales about us too. Sometimes I can recall so little of the hurley burley of bringing up 4 of them that it worries me as much of it fades to a blur unless I make the effort to locate something specific, then I’ve still got it and can retrieve it. This is in contrast to the memories of my own adolescence, which are etched sharp, along with the recent interactions over my grandchildren. I think some memories bury themselves for long periods, only to surface when your subconscious decides it is time. Memory is like the last human frontier. The fine thread that holds our selves together. We don’t understand much about it except that we all can be fearful about losing it. I suspect that reviving memories is an important part of sustaining them. Hence reverie is important. Writing memories also seems therapeutic as is simply sharing them.

    If you use a knife against those with guns you’re an idiot(that old adage – don’t bring a knife …). When someone comes at you with a knife only a fool would not reach for the gun. The police officers are well advised to be transferred.

    I’m very much struggling to believe the police will be charged but I will defer to those here more well informed about the NT situation. If they are charged I hope the NT police en masse do a walk out.

    Personally I am quite fond of the patriarchy. They make men do all of the heavy and dirty jobs and they offer us protection and support, as well as companionship and fixing of fuses blown, real ones and metaphoric if required. They also heteronormatively like the way we are made, and interesting parts of them let us know how they feel. There is a lot to like in all of that. Fuck the patriarchy? Well, if you insist. Count me in. 🙂

  111. Muddy

    Eltahawey: Nothing she does is brave or daring. By operating from within the comforts and protections of the system she pretends to attack, she takes no risk. It’s like taunting a great white shark from within the protection of a cage: if the shark starts to poke back, you can simply be removed to the safety of the boat. Eltahawey claims to spit on privilege, yet in reality, it is a sleight of hand. True courage involves risk. One cannot claim to be a fighter, yet never step into the ring. Let’s not give respect to a coward pretending to be a warrior, by giving her our attention.

    Iran is sitting on the largest oil lake in the world. So that is why they are aggressively pursuing nuclear power? Mullahs saving the planet?

    I think to be honest, they are quite sick of foreign c$nts challenging their countries sovreignty, and consider it the only way for them to ensure people leave them the f$ck alone.

    How Reliable Are Home DNA Ancestry Tests? Investigation Uses Triplets to Find Out

    The sisters were all 99 percent European but the test from 23andMe also showed some surprising differences.

    Nicole was 11 percent French and German but Erica was 22.3 percent. Their sister Jaclyn was in the middle at 18 percent.

    “I’m surprised,” Nicole said. “I’m surprised because we came from the same egg and DNA. How are our ancestries different?”

    Guerrero then met with the Maynard triplets and revealed the results for their “Family Tree DNA” tests. It showed they all had British Isles ancestry but the amount was different.

    Erin Maynard was 59 percent, Mandy was 66 percent and Melissa was 70 percent.

    The tests also showed that Mandy had six percent Scandinavian ancestry but her identical sisters showed none.

    I’m not sure if you saw my comment yesterday. We went to cobble hill crooklyn for lunch the other day. The brownstone homes are gorgeous.

    Seeing the place I had a flicker of an idea to move back here and trying to talk wifey into it. We’re heading off to a few open houses in Park Slope and cobble hill later on. Some of these homes are massive though. I never really knew crooklyn when I lived here. It’s great.

    Know the area well, JC, as the ex’s kin, some of them, lived there. Beautiful homes, the couple I saw inside. Came thisclose to buying a townhouse in Windsor Terrace. Ex’s uncle was having his dinner, made a strange noise and dropped face-first into his minestrone. His kids offered it to family members before putting it on the market. Probably should have bought it.

    Not wrong about that Guardian review, Cold Hands. Shudder at the mind that could produce this:

    Emmerich goes mercifully easy on the flag-waving patriotism, and he’s pretty even-handed, too, in his portrayal of the Japanese enemy. But his film never really grapples with the human cost of war, and the death of so many young men. A big, long, loud, boring history lesson, it’s a movie that opens a distance between yesterday’s fights and today’s. Emmerich and his scriptwriter Wes Tooke seem to be saying: “Look at these feisty brave boys, who strapped into planes on doomed missions – they did it for our freedom.” The best thing to do with this movie would be to take cover and wait for it to pass.

    Well they did strap themselves into planes, and they did die, and did it for freedom’s sake.

    Maybe she sort of dimly remembered that George H.W. Bush was one of those pilots and felt obliged to slag them all as a consequence.

A couple of our other guests thought it a fun thing to sing Mammy to them, some song about a negress. No one stepped in then, either, even though Mum was mortified for the behaviour, these ladies whose hearts must have been breaking, smiled sweetly and it fell rather flat.

    Biogen says its reversal of fortune came down to more data on patients who were given high doses of aducanumab. That data came from two separate trials, dubbed EMERGE (which enrolled 1,638 patients) and ENGAGE (which included 1,647 patients). Both were Phase III multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group studies testing the safety and efficacy of 18-month regimens of aducanumab at two different doses.

    Before these trials began, research suggested that aducanumab can clear out the hallmark clumps of goopy amyloid-beta peptides that accumulate in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. But clearing out those clumps from blood vessels in the brain comes with the potential risk of damaging the vessels, which could trigger immune responses and swelling.

    As Ars reported in 2016, results of a Phase I trial seemed to confirm this risk. Though the drug cleared out the clumps, the higher the dose of aducanumab in the trial, the more signs of brain swelling and hemorrhaging—which show up as ARIA-E, or amyloid-related imaging abnormalities-edema.

    That Phase I trial started with 165 participants, 32 of which received the higher dose. Of those, 15 developed ARIA-E, and 10 patients dropped out of the study because of adverse events, a troubling sign.

    https://www.livekindly.co/filmmaker-james-cameron-vegan-pea-protein-investment-ingredion/

    Global ingredients company Ingredion has entered into a joint partnership with Verdient Foods Inc., owned by Oscar-winning film director James Cameron and his wife, environmental advocate and entrepreneur Suzy Amis Cameron.

    Ingredion makes starches, flours, and sweeteners out of grains, fruits, and vegetables. It will invest $140 million to expand into a range of plant-based proteins.

    The funding will go toward various projects including the support of the Camerons’ manufacturing facility in Saskatchewan, Canada, and Ingredion’s Nebraska-based factory. The collaboration allows for the production of pea protein isolates and pulse-based flours in the coming year.

  200. John Constantine

    Verdient isn’t Cameron’s first foray into the plant-forward movement. He is the producer behind the forthcoming vegan documentary “Game Changers” that premiered earlier this year. Featuring various plant-powered elite athletes, the film looks at “the truth behind the world’s most dangerous myth: that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health.”

    Cameron has also spoken out about the benefits of plant-based foods, saying that he would “love to put Viagra out of business” by sharing with others, the health risks of animal product consumption.

    The Camerons have become outspoken about the benefits of vegan food. Suzy‘s “One Meal a Day” program is urging people to adopt a plant-based diet for environmental reasons. The pair encouraged “local leaders” like city mayors, school boards, and hospital management to make animal-free food more readily available.

    The Golden Ton, using movies and media hype, plus influencing low level corruptocrats to get granted the concession to sell rations of legume toxins, made moist and sludgy enough to be extruded industrially by mixing with canola toxins. Then made addictive through chemical additives.

    Many consumers now prefer the taste of the industrial chemical additives to the taste of real food.

    Don’t worry about the diabetes/obesity/alzheimers, the Golden Ton will come up with a daily pill you can take to cover up the side effects of their frankenfoods.

    There are “pro-inflammatory foods”?

    Yes, and they’re the same foods you’ve been warned about by everyone from your dentist to your cardiologist. (And that’s no surprise, because gingivitis and sclerotic arteries are both inflammatory conditions.) Foods high in sugar or high in unhealthy fats (think deli meats and fried foods) are top of the list.

    “We don’t fully understand it yet,” Buford says, “but now we know our gut microbiome, made up of trillions of bacteria, influences physiologic processes throughout the body.” We’re born with a balance between good and bad bacteria in the gut. When that balance is thrown off — known as dysbiosis — it can lead to trouble. “A disregulated microbiome has been associated with metabolic diseases, pulmonary diseases, nervous system conditions, Alzheimer’s — and these associations grow as we learn more and more,” Buford says.

    The fact that the Chinese and Russians are behaving so aggressively in regards to corporate espionage should come as no surprise. Indeed, they’ve both told the world quite publicly that they intend to reach technological parity and surpass the West (namely, the United States) by whatever means necessary. China, in particular, first openly signaled this desire when it launched the 863 Program in 1986. And since then, Beijing has continued its espionage push through its current Made in China 2025 and Thousand Talents programs.

    I watched the John Demjanjuk documentary on Netflix yesterday.

    Sad for the survivors.

    What they endured was indescribable.

    What wasn’t made clear was something I read elsewhere was the defence strategy because he was extradited for crimes against humanity, specifically being ‘Ivan the Terrible’ he admitted being a different sadistic monster, ie camp guard, just not that particular camp guard.

    The defence lawyer ( a smarmy up himself egotist) then realised that was going too far so they reverted to claiming he was in a specific pow camp which apparently was impossible as it wasn’t open long enough.

    Also the victims in various camps called quite a few guards from eastern Europe ‘Ivan the terrible’ but that didn’t come out at the trial.

    Not surprisingly the moniker was used more than once.

    As for the grandson’s excuse making at the end.

    No, most people wouldn’t becomes murderous concentration camp guards in order to survive.

    Him piously making a sign of the cross at his grandfather’s grave then saying that sickened me.

    Demjanjuk’s old boss at Ford was interesting, with the implication that many if not all the German and Ukrainians working there had pasts that didn’t bear closer scrutiny.

    Quite possible.

    From the link –

    However, the assumption that because the word “socialist” appeared in the party’s name and socialist words and ideas popped up in the writings and speeches of top Nazis then the Nazis must have been actual socialists is naive and ahistorical. What the evidence shows, on the contrary, is that Nazi Party leaders paid mere lip service to socialist ideals on the way to achieving their one true goal: raw, totalitarian power.

    The first seven pages of the NT News today are taken up with the shooting incident at Yuendumu.

    This article from the print edition talks about the lack of medical people present when it took place.

    ‘Unrest’ blamed for evacuation of clinic’s staff
    NATASHA EMECK

    HEALTH staff from the Yuendumu clinic were evacuated from the community only a few hours before Kumanjayi Walker was fatally shot by police officers .

    The staff chose to flee the town after a series of break-ins saw two staff attacked, a health department spokesman said.

    A department spokeswoman said the “community unrest” put staff at risk and they were evacuated on Saturday afternoon.

    Due to the closure, Mr Walker, 19, did not receive immediate medical attention after police shot him at 7pm the same day.

    Mr Walker was initially in a critical condition but died from his injuries before medical help could arrive from the neighbouring community of Yuelamu three hours later.

    Aboriginal Medical Services Alliance NT chief executive John Paterson said he wanted answers from the Government on why they had to evacuate the entire clinic.

    “We can’t afford to have remote clinics closed, especially during this time of year with the extreme heat,” Mr Paterson said.

    “It’s not like when you close them, the patients living with chronic conditions in those communities go away either.”

    Mr Paterson said the NT Government needed to restore the medical services in Yuendumu immediately.

    Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the health clinic would be reopened at some stage today.

    “The health staffing decisions have been based on the break-in attempts and two health staff were injured on Saturday when they were attacked,” he said.

    “Grief counsellors are being organised and are going out to Yuendumu (today) for the community.”

    He said some education staff had also been evacuated and the Yuendumu school was expected to remain closed until Wednesday.

    “Nine of the staff are currently in Alice Springs and eight remain in the community, including the principal,” he said. One of the female teachers still in town said last night that staff “did not feel safe any more”.

    School bans tag for being too rough

    First it was conkers, then leapfrog; now playing tag has been added to the list of playground activities banned by schools over safety concerns.

    Joanne Smith, head teacher at the Rudyard Kipling Primary School & Nursery in Brighton, has angered parents after declaring the game too rough. She said that traditional games such as tag and British bulldog had “escalated” and were causing children to get upset. As a result, the school has banned rough play and told the children to play with “gentle hands”.

    That howl you may be hearing is Rudyard spinning in his grave.

  228. Knuckle Dragger

    ‘Chief Minister Michael Gunner said the health clinic would be reopened at some stage today.’

    Why?

    It won’t matter whether the staff (coerced by God knows what) at the reopened clinic were the same ones that left because they couldn’t stand being broken into and attacked any more, or different ones.

    They will be blamed for not being there to save the life of the same person who did the breaking in, attacking, and started stabbing the constabulary when they went to pinch him for it. This is the tribal way, and they will be in ten times the danger the staff were beforehand.

    I can’t emphasise this enough. Payback must be had, and one way or another they must have their revenge.

    It’s the same mindset they have with housing. Trash it, burn what’s left and demand another free one. Gummint’s fault. Whitey’s fault.

    Also, please note the amount of grandmothers this career crook (for that he is) have come out of the woodwork. Five or six, at least. None living in Yuendumu, most in Alice where they can get on the piss easier. Gotta applaud these multiple Nannas’ initiative, staking their compo bid early.
