A new Camel for Snoopy A.E.Brain

Because I gave the other one away to someone whose need was greater than mine. This one's lighter, and made of stiff card reinforced with matchsticks and an internal PVA coat.

His opponent is not the Red Baron Manfred Von Richthofen, (despite the colouring) but Austrian ace Godwin von Brumowski.

What is the Western Australian Government’s problem?

Had the Western Australian Government moved with a sense of urgency and implemented the Custody Notification Service which it is signalling will eventually be the case then Djabera Djabera Bardi man Haji-Noor could still be alive. The tragedy of Ms Dhu is with us all – the young woman spent the last 48 hours of […]

Put out the Otways fires now using aerial water bombing planes (We) can do better

Wildlife and people who live in and love the Otways need us all to place pressure on the Victorian government to use effective fire-fighting, in the form of aerial water-bombing, instead of allowing these fires to burn themselves out whilst consuming our remaining forests and wildlife. Parks Victoria, CFA and DELWP (said DELWOP) use labour hire and equipment companies, and create an emergency bureaucracy and pay themselves massive bonuses during fires giving them a direct incentive to keep them burning - almost invariably making the future landscape more flammable - deprived of the insects and animals that break down flammable fuels. Like children with matches (an a financial incentive) they cannot help themselves and consider wiping parks, wildlife, homes and businesses and tourism out when people are not killed a success!

Generations yet to be born will be lost to the prison system & to suicide

Generations of children are growing up without any parenting, set adrift by the impoverishment that led their parents to low level offending, by a shallow system bent on retribution. Many Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander children are growing up with at least one parent in jail. These children are hit by the trauma, but their […]

Fine flouters face extra time in jail Deaths In Custody Watch Commitee WA blogs

People who flout fines could have to spend longer in jail to pay off their debt under options being explored to recoup an outstanding bill that has blown out to almost $362 million.

Attorney-General Michael Mischin is looking at reducing the $250-a-day “cut out” rate for time behind bars for fine defaulters, as well as scrapping regulations that allow offenders to clear their debts at the same time as they are in jail for unrelated offences.

Transport Minister Nalder’s recent public declaration to legalise uber failed the Litmus “reason” Test.

Notwithstanding the current chaotic under regulated Western Australian transit market place, has been the recent decision by the beleaguered transport minister to openly declare the government’s intention to legalise uber.

Thank you Senator Sue Lines, the Winmar family, Janette Henry, Dameyon Bonson, Riyadh Al-Hakimi

There is a profoundly long way to go in bridging classist divides, poverty, in ending the juxtaposition of affluence nearby grinding poverty. Nearly two and a half million Australians live below the Henderson Poverty Line. One million Australian children live below that line. Nearly 20,000 children aged 12 years and less are homeless.

Dramatic modifications for the taxi industry have been a work in progress -but who will really benefit?

For better or for worse, the Western Australian Taxi Industry is currently going through a revolutionary transit transformation process. Many fragments of this transformation had been ambiguously foreshadowed some years ago, but it was the Global Financial Crisis (GFC), cumulative demand for transit options and advent of the uber effect that eventually fuelled the need […]

Housing the homeless

What sort of nation is Australia when a struggling family’s Christmas wish was for 13 blankets, for their 13 children? Australia is one of the world’s most affluent nations per capita, the world’s 12th largest economy but the extensiveness of large homeless families on our streets is little known to most Australians. Families of 5, […]

Permaculture New Year’s Resolutions

Serial-resolution-maker and breaker Maude Farrugia looks at how permaculture can help to create beautiful, sustainable new years patterns…

How can permaculture help us create great new habits for the new year? It’s all about patterns!

According to permaculture luminary Looby McNamara (author of People and Permaculture) “The first thing is to survey our patterns – which ones are regenerative i.e. bring us benefits, and which ones are degenerative i.e. are costly to us in some form such as wasting our time or degenerating our health.”

The problem with new years resolutions is that we only think about them in January, then proceed to forget about them for the rest of the year, but by looking at patterns we address th...

Burying the bad news at Christmas: Greenhouse Gas emissions rising reports @takvera #Auspol No Fibs

Australia’s Quarterly Update of Australia’s National Greenhouse Gas Inventory to June 2015 was published on Christmas Eve.
