"IndyWatch Feed Northcoast": North Coast Voices: Former Australian defence minister Kevin Andrews skips first week of parliament to address Koch Brothers' funded U.S. Heritage Foundation event "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Former prime minister Tony Abbott was a guest speaker at an Alliance Defending Freedom dinner on 28 January 2016 and now his political ally former defence minister Kevin Andrews is scheduled to deliver a speech at a Heritage Foundation event being held in the Allison Auditorium, Washington DC.

This speech can be watched live online from 3am AEDT (Sydney) on 3 February 2016 at .

Like Alliance Defending Freedom, the Heritage Foundation is a far-right American organisation which seeks to influence federal and state elections, as well as politicians and government policy.

It is a pro-gun, pro-coal, pro-deregulation, anti-universal health care, anti-gay marri...


"IndyWatch Feed Northcoast": North Coast Voices: In the hope of winning back the highest political office in the land is Tony Abbott committing a cardinal sin against gender equality and Australian democracy? "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Did anyone really think that American hard-right religious extremism was confined to U.S. shores and missionary outposts in third world countries?

Does anyone really believe that former Australian prime minister Tony Abbott is currently courting the misogynistic, homophobic, religious extremist group Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) simply to support the notion of Christian family ideals?

The reality is very different.

Religious extremism USA-style is already in this country and it appears that Tony Abbott may be intent on tapping its influence and money in order to rebuild his personal political power.

Indeed, in The Guardian on 27 January 2016, a phone conversation between a journalist and an ADF representative is quoted which seems to indicate that Abbott may be doing just that:

"IndyWatch Feed Geelong": Barwon Blog: A very busy Barwon "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

This week-end saw a number of sporting events take place on or by the Barwon, so I thought I'd take a short break from what has been a very long trek from the banks of the Barwon in Geelong to the upper reaches of the Yarrowee River and the goldfields of the 1850s.

I already knew it was going to be hectic and I planned to be there. As always on Saturday morning come rain, hail or shine, the Balyang Sanctuary Parkrunners were out and about early. Also on the move were a host of rowers all in attendance for the Barwon Regatta, held across the week-end.

After negotiating my way through the throng, I headed upriver on the bike, past King Lloyd Reserve where Murgheboluc Cricket Club were taking on Grovedale.

Tasfintalk: Are Forestry Tasmania's losses even greater? "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Assumptions of 80 to 90 year rotations in native forests formed the basis for estimating the future sustainable volumes that could be extracted from our public forests as part of the forest peace process.

It would be a pure coincidence if the sustainable rotations led to a sustainable FT.

If timber is sold with inadequate margins as FT does then it won’t be financially sustainable regardless of whether the forests are sustainable.

Yet FT claims logging a small poorly managed production forests like Lapoinya after 60 years of regrowth yielding only 245 tonnes of timber per hectare is a profitable exercise.

It’s only profitable if a lot of costs are ignored....


Tasfintalk: Ta Ann dossier "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

This is a background note on the financial aspects of  Forestry Tasmania’s (FT’s) major customer Ta Ann Tasmania, as the new FT Board contemplates its future.

With a lack of continuity on the Board and uncertainty whether FT management will relapse back to the unfortunates ways of the Kloeden/Gordon era, this is a quick summary for new Directors of tawdry Ta Ann, its profit shifting activities and how it operates as part of a group which dwarfs FT in size and profitability yet is funded by the Australian taxpayer and partly underwritten by an insolvent FT.

On The Convict Trail: Infant Orphan School, New Town "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

The Infant School was opened in 1862 to relieve overcrowding in the Boys' and Girls' Schools either side of St John's Church. It also housed the hospital for the orphan school. The rear of the building had an unusual radial spoke arrangement which has been demolished. The main block is flanked by two single storey wings which were raised to two stories circa 1880.

The Infant Orphan School, constructed in 1862 became the Female Charitable Institution in 1879, operating as a lying-in hospital and home for girls considered to be 'mentally defective' as well as providing accommodation for women who were destitute. After the orphan school closed in 1879, the noteworthy wrought-iron verandas were added and other alterations were made. The building became known as New Town Charitable Institution.

Now Among Largest Firearms Investors, Soros In Gun Control Scheme To Dump Stocks

soros_davosBy Mac Slavo –

Do you see the puppet strings?

The plot to disarm Americans and suspend the 2nd Amendment is working with furious pace. But it is anything but head on.

The 2nd Amendment makes gun ownership an inalienable right and guarantees armed and formidable populace. The NRA and other lobbies have gun rights firmly entrenched in the Republican party.

So the other side works the back door. Infiltration, is that what is happening?

By all appearances, Soros, the elite wolf in sheep’s clothing has been investing in firearms companies not to profit from them, but to destroy them, and destroy the access of people to guns and ammunition.

"IndyWatch Feed Melbourne": The Gap Year and Beyond: The Genoa River Sea-Eagles (Part 1) "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

On my yearly pilgrimage to Mallacoota, I look forward to the certainty of finding and watching White Bellied Sea-Eagles. Even across the other side of the Mallacoota Inlet they are easy to spot with their bright white body, large v-shaped wingspan and easy flight. One of the better places to observe these large Eagles up close, is along the Genoa River where several pairs have claimed feeding and breeding territories. The nests are reused and built upon year after year for decades until it becomes so heavy that it breaks the tree.  Access to the Genoa River is via Gypsy Point where a canoe can be hired (or launch your own) or can you join one of the regular boat cruises that head up the river for several kilometres. Each year I join one of the boat cruises and try and photograph these astounding birds of prey. The boat captain has got to know the local eagles and if they are in the area can call them in with a screech and a promise of raw chicken wings.
The photos below are from the first of two boat trips I took – I enjoyed the cruise so much that I booked myself onto another one a few days later. You can never have enough practice in shooting birds of prey in action.

Michael Smith writes:

“Whilst in Baghdad, I was fortunate to spend some time with SECDET IX, the detachment charged with the responsibility of the security of the Australian Embassy Staff. It was made up of Military Policemen, Infantry from 3rd Battalion (Airborne), Royal Australian Regiment and the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment, Queensland Mounted Infantry as well as support personnel from other corps such as Royal Australian Signals Corps, Royal Australian Intelligence Corps and Royal Australian Army Catering Corps.”

“Commanding the detachment was 38 year old Major Kyle Tyrell. Major Tyrell grew up in Essendon in Victoria and spent over a decade in the Army serving in 1 RAR, 2 RAR, 3 RAR, 6 RAR, 2 Commando Company, 8/7 Battalion, Royal Victorian Rifles, the Combat Training Centre and Army Headquarters. During this time, he took five years off and returned to civilian life where he had a complete change of pace and completed a Masters of Business Administration. He worked as a management consultant and owned his own company building yachts. He spent time sailing around the world with his wife.

“After returning to the Army, he served in the Solomon Islands and then in Iraq in 2006 as SECDET Commander, a role for which he received a Commendation for Distinguished Service in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list for outstanding leadership in action.”

A New Generation of Drinking
XXXX pots and $5 counter meals at the West End Hotel in Townsville. I should have been studying but who can turn down a couple of cleansing ales and a meal all for $10. I spent a lot of time in traditional Aussie pubs in those days. The counter would be studded with old timers in King-Gee shorts, drinking ponies and watching sport on the overhead TV.
Because of my misspent Uni years, I’m not intimidated by going into an old pub. I’ve spent plenty of time in them since, playing pool and listening to bands. But over the years live music and cheap eats have increasingly been replaced with pokies and play areas. Some pubs have kept pace with the changing times and offer great meals or an alternative space for alternatives. More and more higher end bars have emerged – craft beers, cocktails and gourmet pizza.

Motorbike Writer: Cop accidentally shoots fleeing motorcyclist "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A Minnesota rider pulled over for speeding has been accidentally shot in the arm by a Minnesota police officer who blamed stress for the incident.

The Eden Prairie cop blames the mistake on the “high stress” of the situation and “muscle memory” from training 20 days before the shooting.

It’s the second incidence of American cop violence toward speeding motorcycle riders that we have brought to you in the past few days after video became available.

In the next video, an American rider is rammed by an unmarked police car after a five-minute pursuit and then kicked in the chest to get on the ground, even though he was starting to crouch down.

In both incidents, the cop is chasing a speeding rider with no knowledge that they have committed any other crime, but when they comply and pull over, the cop jumps from his vehicle with his gun drawn.

This serves as a warning to anyone riding in America of the gun-happy nature of police and vulnerability of a rider. Check out this website for a list of police shootings.

(Also see this US police chase video.)

In the accidental shooting incident that happened at 3am in June 2015, 21-year-old motorcyclist Matthew Hovland-Knase was convicted of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle at speeds over 100mph (160km/h). He was sentenced to five days of community service and 15 d...

It's been widely reported that Whitsunday Air Services / Hamilton Island Air Cessna 208FP Caravan VH-WTY experienced difficulties and crashed while landing at Chance Bay on the Eastern side of Whitsunday Island near Hamilton Island on Thursday 28 January.

VH-WTY - which is based at Hamilton Island - was operating what has been described as a "routine" flight with a pilot and 10 passengers on board. Queensland Police media reported that the approach to the Chance Bay was tricky with rough seas, and upon landing, the seaplane bounced before landing heavily, coming t...

"IndyWatch Feed Cvic": Natural Newstead: Another raptor encounter "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

There have been lots of raptor encounters over the past few weeks – may they continue. This juvenile Wedge-tailed Eagle was observed near Yandoit on Friday afternoon, nicely framed high up in a River Red-gum.

The spiky ‘head-dress’ is typical of many in the eagle clan – this is the first time I’ve managed a decent shot of one in full regalia. It conjures up visions of some of the relatives of Aquila audax, most notably the fearsome Monkey-eating Eagle of the Phillipines … which as it turns out doesn’t actually eat monkeys!

Tasmanian Times: Basslink: A short summary of risks ... "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Without warning, Tasmania’s power link to the Mainland suddenly ruptured in December 2015, just as it was being called upon to shore up power supplies. This event has sent shockwaves through the Tasmanian administration. … Tasmania generates approximately 90 percent of its power demand (in average rainfall conditions) thus requiring us to import the remaining 10 percent – so this need can be seen as a necessity in the absence of the state lifting its renewable capacity. By exporting high value peaking power and importing low value base load this gap could theoretically be made up at a profit and with a net greenhouse emissions reduction. Environmental arguments went both ways, but the Tasmanian Greens and the broader environmental movement generally disapproved the project fearing that it would result in a net transfer of coal-fired power from the mainland to Tasmania, thus breaching our valued reputation as an all-renewable electricity island. As it turned out this is, in fact, what has transpired. During the ten years since the project was officially started up in 2006 the net power transfer has been from north to south by a strong margin … • Anne Cadwallader in Comments: Chris, which large industrial consumer is likely (as you write) to pack up and go?  That does, as you indicate, seem to be a massive game changer. Hydro industrialization was a major part of our state’s development, but can’t last forever.  But if we once again become awash with electricity, surely it positions us well for a low carbon world?  I never minded the idea of being Australia’s national park (a lot better than being its disused quarry, as W.A. is rapidly becoming).  But being Australia’s hydro power battery pack sounds wonderful.  We can be both profitable, and a positive force in the world.  Then there will be no more dying old people lying on the floor of the Royal Hobart on towels: • asoka nelson in Comments: on the 28th of ja...

Motorbike Writer: Riders help Monument Valley Navajo "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

One of the most iconic riding destinations would have to be Monument Valley in the Navajo reservation on the Arizona-Utah border with its towering landmarks and desolate surroundings.

It has been immortalised in many Hollywood films and is a top destination for motorcyclists.

We travelled there a couple of years ago and the eerie scenery is breathtaking.

But one motorcycle rider has gone further than just appreciating the scenery.

Ron Grace was riding through the Navajo reservation in 2000 when his BMW GSPD adventure motorcycle broke down.

“My wife Dawn and I met officer Darryl Curley Navajo PD; he graciously waited with us for almost two hours telling us of the problems and culture of the Navajo,” he says.

“Then after additional trips with my Dad Ron Sr, I decided to do what I could to help, even if it was only a small thing.”

Calling all women! Come on a six-week journey of creative self-discovery – kick-start your writing projects for 2016 in the insiprational environment of the Byron Bay hinterland with author, publisher and editor Candida Baker.

It’s the first time I’ve offered a writing course for women in some years,” says Candida, whose latest book, Belinda the Ninja Ballerina, was published in October. “I’m very excited to have created these courses for women, to help them on their writing journeys and to encourage them to tap into their full creative power.”

Candida, who started Verandah Magazine 18 months ago, is the author of numerous books including the non-fiction series Yacker, Australian Writers Talk About Their Work; two novels, The Hidden and Women and Horses; a book of short stories, The Powerful Owl, numerous anthologies and several children’s books.

“I see my whole life as being creative,” says Candida. “I love to take photographs, and also to paint, and I’m also a natural horsemanship practitioner. I’ve found that if I can simply allow the creativty to flow then projects unfold in the most amazing way. I’m currently working on my third novel, based on the life of photographer Eadweard Muybridge, and I’m looking forward to sharing my creative process with participants in the course.”

As a journalist Candida has been editor of The Weekend Australian Magazine, deputy editor of the Good Weekend; arts editor of the Sydney Morning Herald and a feature writer on The Age. She was Director of the 2011 Byron Bay Writers’ Festival, and since then she has run numerous events and workshops in the Byron Bay region.

"IndyWatch Feed Capricornia": Parasitical receivers , FTI, take over Palmer’s Queensland Nickel "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Government warned to buy time for Qld Nickel or foot the bill

bob-katter-office29 January 2016: Federal Member for Kennedy Bob Katter has used the first Creditors’ Meeting of Queensland Nickel to urge both the Federal and State Governments to guarantee more time for the Townsville Refinery to find a buyer – warning otherwise they would foot huge bills if the refinery closed.

The first Creditor’s Meeting was held in Townsville today and attended by over 1,000 people including creditors, former workers and members of the public. At the company’s principal asset the Yabulu Nickel Refinery nearly 240 workers have been laid off and the jobs of hundreds of others are uncertain. A vast number of those employees live in Mr Katter’s electorate of Kennedy.

As well as calling on State and Federal Governments to guarantee time to find a buyer for the Refinery, Mr Katter reiterated his concerns about the appointment of FTI Consulting (FTI) as Administrators – who have charged creditors $10.5 million in fees in the case of another failed venture, Kagara Mine.

“My knowledge of how FTI operates is that they will just close the refinery and we don’t want to be hit with a fait accompli from FTI – because it’s 1,000 jobs,” Mr Katter said.

“So we want the Government to give us an assurance that we can buy time – because my experience is that every time the refinery’s gone broke, give it two to three years and you can always find a buyer.

“In the 50 years that I’ve been in politics and in mining, I’ve seen this 100 times – the metal prices will come back.

“But to lose a Refinery of this significance because of a quick, short, jab in the market would be a colossal stupidity by the Governments of Australia.

“I can understand the Government not wanting to...
