Eyes forward and back straight. This is actually important boomers. It could change online broadcasting and syndication.

How would it work. So if I wanted to listen to music I would use a digital token that may directly go to the artist?

Hmmm, just checked his name again on awm.gov.au. Says he was in the 23 Infantry Battalion – 9 to 12 Reinforcements (February-April 1916). Not sure why it said 1st machine gun company in the Shrine….I need to do more research.

There are two WW I Rolls. The Embarkation Roll lists the original unit. The Nominal Roll lists the final unit (or unit at the date of death. Both are incomplete.

The Embarkation is easily searchable, the Nominal is not. Try them, if you have no joy, publish his name and service number here, and I will give it a go. He might have been transferred at some point.

Or just go to the National Archives, and find his file. Search on name plus number, and category B2455.

Nice one! There are 42 records there. I’m struggling to read all that old school cursive writing, but what I can gather:

24/9/16: Div base – Taken on strength – Belgium 27/9/16 – AQ 7562
9/12/16: C. O. 23rd – Transferred to 6th Machine Gun Battalion – France – AQ12367

unreadable writing, but a whole bunch of stuff.

Discharged in 1919 sometime.

I need to work out how to read hahaha. Great stuff tho.

John Cleese accuses BBC of ‘deceptive’ and ‘dishonest’ interview on cancel culture

Monty Python star claims BBC World Asia interviewer tried to portray him as ‘old-fashioned, uncaring and basically harmful’
By Telegraph Reporters 16 December 2021 • 6:34am

John Cleese says he is putting in a formal complaint about the “deception, dishonesty and tone” of a recent BBC interview he had given.

The Monty Python star claimed the interviewer had tried to portray him as “old-fashioned, uncaring and basically harmful” and had not discussed the agreed on topics.

“I just did an interview with BBC World Asia. It was to talk about the shows I’m doing in Singapore and Bangkok,” he wrote in a Twitter thread.

“Instead, the interviewer, whose name was, I think, Karishma, started by asking me questions about Cancel Culture.

“I replied courteously and in full I explained that if parents were over protective, it did not prepare children well when they entered the real and often not-very-nice world.

“She then asked a disjointed question, clearly trying to portray me as old-fashioned, uncaring and basically harmful.”

Cleese said his response had been “totally ignored” by the interviewer, who had then asked him about the ongoing pandemic and Dave Chapelle.

“I removed my headphones, saying. that this was not the interview I had agreed to,” he said.

“So I am formally complaining to the BBC about the deception, dishonesty and tone of this interview. Karishma had no interest in a discussion with me.

“She wanted only the role of prosecutor. The BBC needs to train her again.”

He added: “The media will no doubt report that I ‘stormed out.’ I didn’t. Nor did I lose my temper.

“But I was depressed that this kind of presenter-ego crap is so prevalent now.”

Last month the comedian “blacklisted himself” from the Cambridge Union debating society after a historian who impersonated Adolf Hitler during a society debate was banned.

That’s what the Head of German Intelligence said about 9/11.
Anyone ever heard of Claire Lehmann?
Anyway, she’s on the Opinion Page of today’s Oz comparing people who oppose Copmpulsory Vaccination to … Hitler!
Here’s her argument:
According to Table Talk, Hitler told his lackeys not to vaccinate Slavs because they don’t live very long lives anyway, so giving them a vaccine would be a waste

Therefore, Vaccines are DoublePlusGood on Hitler’s say so and if you refuse the Vax yourself, you’re condemning oldies, the Disabled, Aborigines in Remote Areas and Kids, so you are Hitler.

If you factor in the health care costs the world would be better off without them.
Depression is not always self-pity and can have a biological and developmental basis. The studies make it clear that adverse early life events seriously increase the risk for depression and result in the shrinkage of the hippocampus blah blah I won’t explain.
If you can explain to me how self pity can causes changes in brain structure I might take your ideas seriously but if all you have is some intuitive and common sense idea I’ve heard it all before so don’t bother. Big Pharma makes a motza out of depression. Probably their biggest money spinner.

Contrariwise it is obvious that so much diagnosed depression these days is just people going through a rough patch that has locked the person into behavior patterns which create a vicious cycle which is why I love:

As long as we live self-consciously we must always fail to cope with the world.

Even the psychic invalid throws away his crutches, in such moments [large external threat]. For him the greatest joy is to realise that there is something more important than himself. All his life he has turned on the spit of his own roasted ego. He made the fire with his own hands.

Depression is caused by stress.

Stress can be either self inflicted, or by outside influences.

Address the issue directly. Put it “in a box”. Move on. Problem solved.

People tend to “worry too much”. About nothing. Depression is a disease of the “worriers”. There is a guilt factor there in many cases, they just need to “own up” and stop pretending they are the victims.

The Bugman cometh…

Henri Loyrette, heritage curator and former head of the Louvre museum, said: “One cannot imagine a reconstruction of Notre-Dame without an aggiornamento. The question is not, ‘should there be contemporary art?’, but rather, ‘what is a church today?’.

“A strictly identical renovation is a capitulation,” he told Le Monde, which said a fierce battle was underway in the French Catholic Church between “believers in modernity and ecumenism and the guardians of a nostalgic conservatism

Why does it need to be brought up to date, wanker? It is an historic and holy building, not a kitchen.

I think the Mona Lisa should be brought up to date – let’s paint over her!

No, the question isn’t either of those – it is what art should we install that honours God and encourages and fortifies the worshipers.

“Capitulation” to what? Good taste? The faithful? God Himself?

Modernists and ecumaniacs have brought the church undone – apparently this bugman wants more to complete the task.

“Nostalgic conservatism” is actually required of Christians- we are constantly told to remember and preserve.

Queue headlines about the overloaded NSW health system.

Vaccination mandates extended to all primary care and other private sector health care providers (16 Dec)

The NSW government in association with NSW Health has announced an extension of the mandatory vaccination program for health care workers.

As part of the changes mandatory vaccinations will be extended to all primary care and other private sector health service providers across the state.

“The revised Public Health Order will retain the existing coverage of NSW Health staff and staff in public and private hospitals,” a statement from NSW Health read.

“It will also extend vaccination requirements to health practitioners working in private and community settings, such as doctors, nurses and pharmacists, speech pathologists, dieticians and naturopaths. It will also cover support staff working in these practices.”

The health care workers affected must be fully vaccinated by January 31 next year with NSW Health stating the changes are consistent with vaccine mandates in Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia.

Stupid people. It’s hard enough to get nurses and GPs now. Once 31 Jan rolls around that will become much worse. And it will make approximately zero difference to Covid infections, plus add many more to the vax injury list.

(AP) – US health advisers recommend Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccines over J&J shot because of rare but serious side effect.

This is a breaking news update. AP’s earlier story follows:

(AP) – A government advisory panel is meeting Thursday to determine if any restrictions are needed for the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine because of rare but serious blood clots.

A strange clotting problem prompted the U.S. to temporarily halt the single-dose J&J shots last April while scientists investigated. Eventually regulators decided the benefits of a one-and-done vaccine outweighed what was considered a very rare risk — as long as recipients were warned.

Bruce of Newcastle @7.02am – re new mandate extending to alternate health practitioners et al:

What maggots they are in the medical bureaucracy advising NSW government! My daughter has an excellent alternate health practitioner who has steered her teenage daughter (my granddaughter) out of the depths of depression a couple of years ago. He has refused to have the vaccination as he argues that his immune system is in top condition. Very probably he also has private misgivings about the dangers of the vax that he doesn’t advertise for obvious reasons.

Just when you think there is light at the end of the tunnel you are reminded that these bureaucrats are vicious and go out after the dissidents with a vengeance – literally.

9/12/16: C. O. 23rd – Transferred to 6th Machine Gun Battalion – France – AQ12367

The 6th MG Battalion would have been intended for the (never completely raised) 6th Division. When it became painfully clear that there would not be enough reinforcements to complete the division, it was broken up and the men re-distributed as individual reinforcements. (There were never enough reinforcements for five divisions, but that is another story.) That is probably how he ended up in a low numbered MG company.

Original members of the MG companies could often be identified by their low (for 1916) numbers. As a reinforcement for the 23rd Battalion, he would have had a relatively high number. (Perhaps in the 3000s or 4000s?)

Actually, look again record. Was it the 6th MG Company, which was the company belonging to the 6th Brigade, to which the 23rd Battalion belonged? It might be a clerical error, in which case my babbling about the 6th Division becomes irrelevant.

Is Omicron Another Lab Creation?

As noted by Malone, the latest media hype actually began with reports of Africa having far lower case rates than the rest of the world, despite its comparatively low COVID jab rate. That was followed by reports in the local press that South Africa was asking Pfizer to halt its shipments of the shots, as they still had plenty and most adults were refusing to take it.

The very next day, “we suddenly had this huge kerfuffle about this new virus strain, and the press was announcing it was coming out of South Africa,” Malone says. The U.K. almost immediately responded by shutting its borders to most of South Africa.

There could be a serious discussion on whether or not Pfizer runs the world.

Refugees lack COVID shots because drugmakers fear lawsuits – documents

In effect, the drug pushers will only operate under total indemnity terms. Do you think they know that their product is dangerous? In a normal world with any real justice, this would be enough to sue them to extinction.

Only in the Territory:

Best letter today in the NT News is from an “Eric John Roberts”. He tells the world, in rather stilted language, that he is wearing “two face masks” wherever he goes.

Queue headlines about the overloaded NSW health system.

Vaccination mandates extended to all primary care and other private sector health care providers (16 Dec)

The NSW government in association with NSW Health has announced an extension of the mandatory vaccination program for health care workers.

Look back at Cassie’s tale of woe yesterday, and my comment bout bureaucrats bleating about overloaded hospitals. Extend that now to GP and specialist practices.

I must be very naive. I thought that the reason doctors studied so long to become doctors was to be able to make medical decisions for themselves and their patients. Obviously, bureaucrats know better.
