Zippy thats only 3 or 4 gone out of how many? Young lady I know was getting $36 hr a few years ago for answering the bloody phone. She knew it was a bludge. Her real job was organising trips for the boss so they didn’t clash with other gigs. Boss flounced from one place to another for differing events but always picking up a good handful of opm on the way. These bastards get into jobs that gives them access to all these commissions and committees that pay on top of the vast amounts for doing very little at all.

these days it is closer to five or six.

I recall seeing a study that rang alarm bells on this late and lazy training. Problems including incontinence because early bladder control was not established was one of them.

My three stepped out of cloth nappies at almost two for the oldest, not much over one for the youngest. And why wouldn’t you? Horrible soggy old things even after a single “wee”. Disposables wicking away discomfort have retarded the child’s desire to be free and grown up.

Just back from seeing my specialist doc, a super-smart Indian woman, and her ‘well woman’ clinic. She did my recent abdominal surgery and she is such a honey. Hairy came with me because I have been really unwell for four weeks now, and since I got in touch with her in desperation two weeks ago she has slowly been doing some differential diagnosis testing of various sorts while the GP Clinic has refused to take face-to-face patients. They do tele-medicine, which has been useless, worse than useless in fact as their nonchalance about me has driven me crazy. Go to Emergency has been their only advice, when I know that Emergency wouldn’t have any sort of handle on my prior conditions and would be starting investigations from scratch, because that’s their procedure, leaving me with an appointment in two weeks at whatever specialist clinic they wanted to start with first, the end result being that I’d be sent home with Panadol.

Now she’s convinced of a diagnosis, she’s going to contact my new GP (sadly missing O’Orish who has gone back to Ireland) and she intends to make sure I now get the right specialist referrals for further ongoing treatment. She’s put me back on antibiotics (a further course of these was denied to me by the GP’s telephone clinic) and anti-inflammatories and already I am feeling better.

Lizzie hasn’t had a decent night’s sleep in four weeks and she’s been fading away before my eyes, Hairy chimed in during the consultation, confirming that I have been wracked with pain overnight every night, taking strong painkillers and clutching a hot water bottle to my middle, and more or less unable to function during the days. I was welling up with tears over the top of my mask as he expressed his love by taking charge when I was almost beyond talking.

He is an absolute darling to be so concerned for me, and he was right to insist first off that I dump the GP tele-medicine fiasco and go to her (she is costly but hands-on) for all further help. I suspect the NHS in Britain has probably killed people via its strong insistence over a long period on telemedicine; it’s only happened here sporadically, but I have been one of the unlucky ones to suffer from it. I pity other Australians who have had no Hairy to care for them and suffer poor medicine in silence. I wonder too if the crowding in Emergency is also tele-medicine driven.

Disposables wicking away discomfort have retarded the child’s desire to be free and grown up.

Plus the parents no longer have the kids winging and pestering them to remind them life will be much easier if the kid can go by themselves.

Notice how the awful awful plastics of disposable nappies never seem to get much traction with the greenies?
They bring it up every few years but it dies a very quick death.

Im assuming “Green mothers who refuse to use disposable nappies…ever” is the loneliest page of facebook.

Rex the money wasted on the Myki ticket system was scandalous- they say it would have been cheaper to bring back tram connies. A story that’s never really been told.

As the ‘Conspiracy nuts’ warned at the time, it was always about Tracking & Tracing Individuals movements & other related Bug Testing.

Nearly a year ago our whole household was put into 2 week isolation because one of us used a Myki Card on a Melbourne Tram, that a “Covid Positive” person had also used their Myki Card on hours earlier.

And now here we are, with all these ‘unrelated’ tracking & tracing systems we’ve been voluntarily ‘opting into’ ‘for our ease & convenience’, reminding us that there are records of all the times we haven’t used our mandatory “Covid Passports” …

… nothing to worry about though … it’s not as if there’s UN backed Dictatorships popping up all over the world, using all these records we can’t access, against us …

AOC’s Chief of Staff Admits the Green New Deal Is Not about Climate Change

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted recently that the true motivation behind introducing the Green New Deal is to overhaul the “entire economy.”

Saikat Chakrabarti (born January 12, 1986) is a political advisor and software engineer. He was formerly the chief of staff to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the U.S. Representative from New York’s 14th congressional district representing portions of The Bronx and Queens in New York City.[1]

On August 2, 2019, he left Ocasio-Cortez’s office to run New Consensus, a group to promote the Green New Deal.[1]

Mrs Panzer’s princess niece was doing the whole “poor little Tarquin (aged 3) isn’t toilet trained and just won’t do it”.
(Just another ‘how hard is my life’ fucking drama).
She went to some specialist who said “It just takes time. That will be $250 thanks”.
Until she found out that the child care centre that Tarquin was enrolled in and due to start in a couple of months charged something like $25 per shitty nappy change.
Tarquin was promply tied to the pot for the next three days until training was satisfactorily achieved.

A director ID (or Director Identification Number) is a 15-digit unique identifier which will allow all of a person’s directorships to be registered and monitored.

The director ID regime is intended to increase director accountability and traceability.

Director ID is the first service being introduced by Australian Business Registry Services (ABRS), which will eventually streamline how businesses register, view, and maintain their business information with government, as well as providing associated services.

If you fail to apply for a director ID you face a fine of more than $5,500, with fines of over $22,000 and the potential for imprisonment for an offence such as misrepresenting director identification numbers.

You can apply now for a director ID. If you are already a director, you have 12 months to apply, however, if you become a director from now on, you must apply within 28 days of appointment.

Fucking hell … can I ever be a citizen ?

‘Morning Star Bear’ is the name Carrie Bourassa chose to express her ‘indigenous’ identity. Bourassa, a professor at Saskatchewan University and one of Canada’s top health experts, has spent years claiming to have First Nations heritage. But she has now been outed as a bog-standard white Canadian. She has also been suspended from her university post and has stepped down as scientific director of the indigenous wing of a Canadian health body.

Bourassa previously claimed to have a grandfather who was a member of the Métis group, a people with mixed indigenous and white heritage. In a TEDx talk in 2019, she said she had suffered from racism as a child and that the spirits of her ancestors were present on stage with her.

One of Bourassa’s colleagues, who is herself from a First Nations background, became suspicious when she noticed that Bourassa had started wearing more traditional-looking clothes, particularly when appearing in public. She also noticed that Bourassa had started claiming to have two additional First Nations groups, the Anishinaabe and Tlingit, in her heritage.

Unequivocal headline…
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-11-05/us-politics-weekly-wrap-nov-youngkin-virginia-trump-biden/100593886
Stating Donald trump was avoided by the successful Republican candidate.
But in the article..

While he was endorsed by Trump, and reportedly spoke with him regularly on the phone, Youngkin never hitched his wagon to the former president or even campaigned with him. The most Trump got involved was with a single late phone rally that was closed to the press and the public.

Some commentators have already dubbed it the “Trump in the Spirit over Trump in the Flesh” approach.

So apart from the endorsement, the regular phone calls and one rally, Trump was avoided…

I suspect the NHS in Britain has probably killed people via its strong insistence over a long period on telemedicine; it’s only happened here sporadically, but I have been one of the unlucky ones to suffer from it.

Gosh, Lizzie, so pleased you are resolving your problem – the worst possible time for any ailment at all, let alone a serious one!

I have no idea if our city GP practice is seeing person-to person. Neither I nor husband has been to see them for at least 6 months. Husband had a sudden lump appear – which, by incredible good fortune, we had seen to by a specialist & whipped out within 2 days. More by just sheer good luck (cancellations) than planning. As for me – I haven’t seen a medico (& don’t blood well want to!) in some 2 years.

I have previously boringly outlined on this blog our daily combined fruit/vegetable/vitamin juice every morning. It continues – & I have added CoQ10 to the Vit C,Vit D3, & Zinc. I also have 3 bottles of Quercetin on hand in case we get symptoms of the dreaded lurgy. Quercetin is almost unprocurable – so it is saved like gold. Something must be working, as every cut and abrasion acquired on the farm (many – I got tangled in the electric fence the other day!) is healing at a very fast (and strange) rate.

BTW Still have lots of Ivermectin (pour-on) used for the cattle. Also on hand for ABSOLUTE emergency. I am hoping for the approval of the human tablets by the TGA eventually – as there is a group of Aussie physicians trying very hard to do just that.

BTW We also take anti-histamines every day up here. And not simply because the pollens are very bad this Spring (& they are!) – but after hearing about the experience of the Indian Doctor, Dr. Shankara Chetty, in South Africa, who has successfully treated literally thousands of COVID patients successfully with anti-histamines. He believes the cytokine storm is an allergic immune inflammatory reaction from the virus debris. He has concluded this partly because it manifests almost precisely on Day 8 of infection. Anyway, he has not lost a patient! He combines the anti-histamines with steroids.

Husband also takes Cartia – low dose aspirin daily.

Speaking of persistence with medical types.
I spoke to my GP earlier in the week about vax side effects.
“Meh”.
Just got off the phone from a “follow up”.
More “meh” and “give it another week or so”.
Until I said, “Oh, OK. No worries. I’ve got an appointment with my specialist next Thursday. I might see what she thinks then if it doesn’t improve.”
The two words docs hate to hear … “second opinion”.
Suddenly it was all concern about the tingly/numbness thing and the stiff arm.
“Yes, yes. That shouldn’t persist beyond 2-4 days. I’ll write to the specialist. Now you’re not due for number 2 for at least five weeks. Let’s monitor it. Maybe look at alternatives. Moderna. Novavax. Interim exemption. Mumble mumble.”.

Relative travelled back with the Red Roo the other night within Queensland. From him up sides, lounge is empty and bar well stocked. Cabin staff were very friendly.

Downsides and why he’s giving air travel another spell for a bit. Flight in (fully flex fare) cancelled and he was bumped to Jetstar without the frills. Changed a fully flex fare on way out that incurred a fare difference that turned out to be a half empty aircraft. Doesn’t expect a full meal but the snack given out was the $5 Cheese and crackers you get on Jetstar Menu. The last a hill which I told him he was an idiot to die on due to the optics and which he complained about, no bar service on a late afternoon flight.

@ Calli-

The average GP is trained only to go as far as taking a history and push a pill or a cream.

Everything beyond that is a Specialist or Hospital job, and that is out of their hands as far as the script is concerned.

Like so many other professions in Australia, treating it as a job rather than a vocation (or worse, a passion) gets you regarded as either a eccentric to be indulged, or a nut who needs to be watched.

Even in such an enthusiast-heavy environment as the rail industry, where the fact I started as a steam locomotive driver for the sheer joy of it is something most of the professionals do not get. The older guys are either nostalgic, or hated getting dirty and sweaty so much they legit think I am crazy…

Newspapers are in the business of Narrative Confirmation.
We see it today in the Australian’s reporting of the Chloe Smith Abduction.
The only truth anymore is in the photography.
In the reporting of the recent Trial of a policeman who shot a woman dead, it was hard to work out what the real storey was, so many bullshit Narratives had to be shored up and patched over.
A couple ofbthe photos of persons entering and exiting the Court made the situation plain, though.

I went to see my former GP (since retired) a few years back after being crook for a few weeks.
Some blood tests showed up “something bad”.
He thought it was a particular problem but wasn’t sure, so shunted me off to the ED at the private hospital down the road.
Diagnosed that afternoon (turns out it was something else equally serious with very similar symptoms).
Up on the hoist within three days and fixed (hopefully permanently, but that is my five year and hopefully final scan in March).

Possible pre diabetes and kidney damage.

Abstract
Large-scale COVID-19 vaccinations are currently underway in many countries in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here, we report, besides generation of neutralizing antibodies, consistent alterations in hemoglobin A1c, serum
sodium and potassium levels, coagulation profiles, and renal functions in healthy volunteers after vaccination with an
inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Similar changes had also been reported in COVID-19 patients, suggesting that
vaccination mimicked an infection. Single-cell mRNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) of peripheral blood mononuclear cells
(PBMCs) before and 28 days after the first inoculation also revealed consistent alterations in gene expression of many
different immune cell types. Reduction of CD8+ T cells and increase in classic monocyte contents were exemplary.
Moreover, scRNA-seq revealed increased NF-?B signaling and reduced type I interferon responses, which were
confirmed by biological assays and also had been reported to occur after SARS-CoV-2 infection with aggravating
symptoms. Altogether, our study recommends additional caution when vaccinating people with pre-existing clinical
conditions, including diabetes, electrolyte imbalances, renal dysfunction, and coagulation disorders

He believes the cytokine storm is an allergic immune inflammatory reaction from the virus debris. He has concluded this partly because it manifests almost precisely on Day 8 of infection. Anyway, he has not lost a patient! He combines the anti-histamines with steroids.

Husband also takes Cartia – low dose aspirin daily.

Inflammation is certainly a sign that something is wrong, Vicki. I have just had four weeks of massive pelvic inflammation and it has been no picnic. I think you are being very sensible in your approach to your health, gaining information and keeping remedies on hand for immune boosting and treatment. I wish you every success with it and your choice to avoid any experimental vaxx. I felt I had enough problems with my pelvic issues and high blood pressure and my age to warrant taking the jab risks.

To explicate: I have a long-term condition that can be both trivial and yet can quickly become life-threatening. It is an inflammatory condition of the bowel made worse by multiple adhesions from peritonitis as a child that have caused a lot of diverticulosis which results in occasional severe attacks of diverticulitis: at its worst, a bacterial abscess and intersussception – a serious intestinal blockage; at its best, a mild malaise and pain. There may be an inherited aspect. Our daughter aged 4 months nearly died of intersussception (a terrible weekend), my late brother was on one occasion urgently hospitalised with severe diverticulitis and my mother suffered from it all of her life. It is actually a not uncommon illnesss, complicated in my case by my early childhood history. There have been a few years in my life when it has halted everything, I collapse, respond to antibiotics, and yet no cause is found unless the history of the condition is known. As a youger woman, it was usually fobbed off as some sort of female problem, salpingitis or endometriosis etc. whereas it was not that at all. Thanks Calli for you encouragement to persevere even today; women often do get so poorly diagnosed; most of us have tales to tell there.

The problem with my condition is that its presentation can be very diffuse, which is why towards the end of this recent bout I doubt if Emergency would have picked it up. Everything’s complicated because I have had numerous necessary abdominal procedures over my lifetime, the last being for an ovarian cancer scare this year. Further procedures are very strongly not recommended, it took well over an hour under anaesthesia to free enough adhesions for the ovarian removal to commence, and there was other structural involvement also, making nearly 4 hours under.

Immediate antibiotic treatment is essential for good control of this condition. Unknown doctors though are loath to prescribe until they are sure what it is. After a lifetime of it I am sure what it is, so is my specialist and I now need a full medical work-up from a gastroenterologist to get the piece of paper to take on trips with me to ensure I get rapid and immediate treatment and not get given the ‘no unnecessary antibiotics in this practice’ run around, which has happened too often before. O’Oirish, btw, was always happy to give me antibiotics, including to take away with me. He trusted my judgement.

Well, here we are. No wonder Arky closed comments on his anti-doctor rant and sent us geriatrics back to the OT to thrash it out. 🙂

If he had thought he knew it all I would have been on the merry-go-round for weeks or months, and maybe with a much worse outcome.

Didn’t realise it at the time, but a previous doctor was right into the referral kickback game, to the point that he’d recommend a scan/x-ray/ultrasound/specialist appointment for the slightest ailment. After a while (and several hundred dollars’ worth of useless referrals), we stopped taking him seriously, and only saw him when we couldn’t get anyone else.

On one such occasion, Best Man mentioned a chest pain which gripped him at the start of his mountain climbs, but subsided after ten minutes or so. Doctor dramatically oohed and gulped and said BM could have a heart attack and drop dead at any moment. Referred him immediately to a cardiologist for a stress test. We privately rolled our eyes and decided, not this time.

And so Best Man continued his epic climbs (while I indulged in less strenuous activity) and he even conquered Mount Warning. Two weeks later he saw a trusted doctor who thought that the stress test wasn’t a bad idea. One more week and his chest was sawn open for a double bypass.

So the shifty GP was right, after all. BM could have dropped dead at any moment until the op. We’ve often wondered about the logistics of retrieving a body from the the plug peak of Mount Warning. Fortunately, God didn’t want him just then.

Lizzie – that is the absolutely best protection for yourself in emergency situations. Nothing worse than trying to convince practitioners that you REALLY DO know what is wrong with you as you have experienced it before.

But what a burden you and family have with what certainly seems to be an inherited predisposition to inflammatory bowel conditions. I know what incredible discomfort they can cause & how difficult they are to get back under control. My very great sympathy.

The gut is a spectacularly complicated area. A couple of years ago I had a continuing diarrhoea which GP & then gastroenterologist could not diagnose. Started with a gastro virus but would not resolve. PCR could not detect parasites. I had a bout of food poisoning years before which generated a similarly continuing problem which was diagnosed as probably sensitivity to gluten or dairy. Everyone thought it was similar.

However, it was annoying and debilitating. Friend was currently having morning glass of celery juice – which was a real “clean out”. Thought I’d try it. Certainly did – eliminated larvae of fruit fly out of bowel- something totally undetected by the PCR!!!

All this probably too much information! But it does show the unreliability , I think, of PCRs. Incidentally, I don’t eat fruit – especially my delicious figs – straight from trees on my farm now!

I was a nice bloke until you took the jab, JC?

Yea, pretty much and then you went all “Queensland” on me. With the first hint of disagreement you went with the “wog” tag as an ethnic slur. All because I made a personal fucking decision and had the vax. Seriously, what the fuck is it with some of you peripheral rednecks up there and ethnic slurs? You know what really gets to me, it’s the fact that you’re so peripheral and feel you need to made ethnic slurs in order to appear taller than what you really are. You’re a midget.

Oh, and how’s the real cost of dealing with China, with hindsight?

Nope, firstly your view on China and what we should do is stupid. Also, you were critical of me even though you’re not exactly “purified”

As much as you city poofs like to think you’re above us country bumpkins, in reality, you’re just sad insulated fucks, constantly bombarded with bullshit, carrying chips on your shoulders and scared of what you don’t understand beyond the city limits sign.

Okay, I can live with that. Can you live with the fact that you’re peripheral redneck idiot though?

There, I said it.

Look, your command of English is limited.
