  1. QLD’s ALP government is about to enter bizarro world:

    QLD’s Auditor-General has warned that the government’s planned public service expansion over the next four years will lead to cuts in services.

    In other words, due to the government’s fiscal contraints, Queenslanders will have to accept cuts in public services to pay for more public servants.

  2. The internet ruined the demand for cookbooks and cooking magazines.

    True. Sad in a way, because cookbooks are the absolute reading indulgence.

    OTOH, the internet has pushed the realms of recipes far beyond anything I might have encountered 30 years ago. Every style, every nationality and every decadent delight at our fingertips, including my grandson’s favourite, the Basque Burnt Cheesecake, which cohenite posted recently.

    Son’s partner suffers from Crohn’s. Last time they visited I had a good old-fashioned Apricot Chicken ready to cook for dinner. Sorry… can’t: French onion soup mix a no-no. While they were inspecting the progress of new house, I Googled ‘Crohn’s chicken recipes’ and came up with a tasty chicken and honey mustard dish, along with dozens of other options I can use in the future.

    Even so, I’ll always hang on to my cookbooks.

  6. But Struth, all these shameful government denials of liberty are nothing compared to the dread I still have that my vaccinated dear ones will fall ill from these substances that they have been injected with.
    Grandson had a recent angina attack when stressed, and granddaughter had upper abdominal bleeding that an endoscopy could not explain. This is what maintains my rage – a rage which will never be resolved.

    You’re sane Vicki.
    My son got himself jabbed as Frank likes to scoff about, but I did all I could from interstate, and not being able to get to him before I knew he was going to do it, I thought he wouldn’t.
    But 30 somethings know everything, and yet know nothing.
    You’re sane if you are fuming white hot with rage, but we must channel it and make sure it doesn’t consume us.
    Being in denial is worse for those suffering it, because they no longer own themselves, they’re jabbed and it plays hugely on their minds.
    No matter how bad it gets, don’t get jabbed, for mental and physical health.

    What is coming next and after that, as this war against us, to enslave us, continues, means none of us , jabbed or unjabbed are going to be without suffering, and who’s to say they won’t be punishing the unjabbed and killing them?
    The lunacy in someone like Frank or Choo choo’s approach is that they scoff about death camps, while people everywhere are dying of the jab.
    That’s insanity.

    QLD solar farm flooded; short circuits:

    The Courier Mail article:
    Sunshine Coast Council’s Valdora solar farm switched off during flood event
    Power has been switched off at the Sunshine Coast Council’s $50m solar farm after the hinterland flood-prone site was inundated during recent wet weather.
    The Valdora solar farm which offsets council’s energy usage was temporarily disconnected from Energex’s grid on Saturday, February 26 as a “precautionary measure”, a council spokesman confirmed.
    Some units are yet to be reconnected 11 days later.
    Photos from the February 26 weekend showed the land was inundated with water during the six-day deluge which left many homes flooded and roads torn up.
    The council spokesman said no key operational infrastructure was inundated.
    He said the council was still assessing the cost of the flooding impact on the facility which was built in 2017.
    He said once flood waters subsided a full inspection was carried out and two of the six power conversion units were reconnected to the grid on Wednesday, March 9.
    The remaining units were expected to be reconnected “over the coming days”, he said.
    He said prior to building the solar farm a comprehensive flood study, based on the 2014 Maroochy River Flood model was completed by a leading consultancy and the council.
    “Construction was tailored to the cane land site,” he said.
    “All key components within the solar farm, including electrical equipment, solar panels, inverters, switchboards and batteries, are situated well above the 1:100 flood level and the highest flood levels ever recorded in the area.
    “No infrastructure related to operational performance of the solar farm was inundated by flood waters.”
    Yandina resident Suzanne Tigell said it was another example of why floodplains should not be developed.
    She questioned why the council did not inform residents about flooding at the solar farm.
    “There is so much development on the floodplains now,” she said.
    “I’d hate to see something major here on the Coast now because we’ve dodged that many bullets in the past 10 to 15 years with major flooding.”
    The council purchased the 49ha parcel of land off Coolum-Yandina Rd in May, 2014, for $1.65m after the cane land was sold less than two years’ prior for $770,000.
    But initial costs to ratepayers increased to more than $4m with the council also spending $2.3m on costs to develop the project plan as well as the intellectual property and the $300,000 option and rent payments totalling $56,000.
    The council spokesman said the facility would continue to provide benefits to the region.
    “The award-winning Sunshine Coast Solar farm (2018 Australian Regional Development Environmental and Sustainability Award) continues to provide savings to council and reduce council’s operating costs,” he said.
    “It delivers benefits to our environment, offsetting more than 100 per cent of council’s electricity consumption, demonstrating Sunshine Coast Council’s commitment to be Australia’s most sustainable region.”

    What a fvcking joke.

  35. Long biography of Kumanjayi Walker, from the Oz. I’ve only posted part of it.

    In 2015 he met a young woman, Rickisha Robertson, and began bashing her.

    He was stealing, damaging property and terrorising Ms Robertson – behaviour he blamed on his habit of sniffing deodorant.

    He went to Papunya to live with his biological grandparents Phillip and Ena Lane, but rarely spent time in their home, instead returning to Yuendumu to be with Ms Robertson.

    Kumanjayi Walker had little understanding of the effect his behaviour had on his victims such as when he stole the Yuendumu medical clinic car and how this prevented people in the community from getting medical treatment.

    He claimed he only assaulted Rickisha Roberston once when he was smoking ‘gunja’ and said at the time he didn’t know why he did it.

    He had no interest in finding a job and was happy to spend his days watching TV and smoking.

    He had half a dozen different Facebook accounts where he shared photos of himself posing as a gangster and followed Mariah Carey fan pages.

    He followed Collingwood and was part of the East side in the Papunya competition, but sources said he did not play. “He would just walk around and not listen to anyone,” one said.

    Kumanjayi Walker confided in others he was lonely and missed his family, but Ms Oldfield refused to take him in and his great-aunt Meggery Brown, in Katherine, said she was unable to support him.

    A relative in Papunya, Joseph Lane, said at the time: “He mad one, he don’t listen, he walk around day and night. He make trouble for everyone. He need to be locked up for long time.

    “He chase little dog and puppy and he tease them like little kid brain do.

    “He is young man. He should know more but he know nothing”.

    Mr Lane said he felt Kumanjayi Walker needed “some help for his head” because “he does not listen and he does not care”.

    “He does not listen, he can’t understand, I tell him but nothing”.

    Papunya elder Sid Anderson said the young man caused too much trouble in the community and makes life hard for others.

    “That mad one is not welcome back here,” he said.

    “He breaks into shop and clinic and steals people’s cars.

    “Smoking gunja and making trouble is not our way.”

    Mr Anderson said Walker needed to “listen and respect our community”.

    “This boy has no idea who he is,” he said.

    “He does not listen to anyone, especially the old people.”

    After the shooting, his Papunya relatives told the media Kumanjayi Walker was a “funny and friendly” young man who had a lot of friends.

    Yuendumu police regarded him as a sniffer and the local ringleader of break-and-enters, describing him as a risk to community harmony.

    Both the Yuendumu Clinic Manager and the Alice Springs Hospital said in official reports Kumanjayi Walker had no documented history of cognitive or mental health issues.

    Mr Walker was open about his life: he received money from Centrelink and spent it all on food, clothes, grog and “smokes”.

    That would give us about 110,000 “high profile” people in Victoria.
    I think two is way too small for a data set. However, I doubt very much that two 52 year old “high profile” Victorians dying of heart attacks in 6 days is normal – quite likely just a coincidence, but not run of the mill.

    Stop being rational. There are people here who think people in their 50’s don’t die from heart attacks. Warne did have symptoms of an impending heart attack but off he went overseas anyway. Not to be cruel but if you’re ignoring symptoms and have a heart attack that’s on you.

    HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND INFLUENCE PEOPLE
    By Dale Carnegie
    [Revised Australian edition]
    Part Three Chapter 12A – When nothing else works, even Chapter 12, try this

    Sometimes just nothing you do seems to get through. No matter how you try the other fellow just won’t budge.
    But don’t give in! That’s the time you can really impress him with your can-do attitude, grit, spunk and determination!
    I had an experience like that. I’d tried everything in a pitch, and the prospective customer said to me “well Mr Carnegie, I must admit your presentation has been very impressive, but I’m still not convinced it’s right for our company”.
    I could have given up, but I just knew there had to be a way to clinch the deal. Luckily I remembered a strategy taught to me by an Australian truck driver. I looked the prospective customer in the eye, and said:
    “You’re a failure in life, and a shallow cock smoker.”
    And he said, “well Mr Carnegie, now that you put it that way, I see things completely differently. I’ve come round totally to your way of thinking. It will be a pleasure to do business with you.”
    Try it!

    A depressing read. I remember hearing Jacinta Price give a talk at a conference a few years ago and she spoke about the horrendous violence rampant in indigenous communities. She described the violence her mother, her aunts and she herself had endured from indigenous men. I don’t know what the answer is. The bottom line is that indigenous women are let down by indigenous men. It’s incredibly sad.

    “Zulu Kilo Two Alphasays:
    March 11, 2022 at 6:56 pm”

    A depressing read. I remember hearing Jacinta Price give a talk at a conference a few years ago and she spoke about the horrendous violence rampant in indigenous communities. She described the violence her mother, her aunts and she herself had endured from indigenous men. I don’t know what the answer is. The bottom line is that indigenous women are let down by indigenous men. It’s incredibly sad.

    I’m well beyond being sad about it. A friend of mine worked in Darwin hospital. In the initial months she spoke of how much she admired the indigenous. That quickly changed because she became furious at seeing so many aboriginal women rolling in to hospital bashed senseless by their men.

    Every problem they have is our fault or the fault of earlier treatment giving rise to intergenerational trauma. Even DV is blamed on that. If a non-indigenous male engages in DV we tolerate no excuse and regard them with unmitigated contempt. Behavior change does not happen by constantly referencing what happened to prior generations. Unless a person is willing accept responsibility for their behavior what is the point of treatment? Where’s min? She has the lowdown on that issue. That’s my answer Cassie, we have to take the debate away from the political activists and put in the hands of those with the relevant expertise in behavior modification.

    IIRC it is much higher. Let me check …

    The National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children 2010 – 2022 quotes a figure of Indigenous females being up to 35 times more likely to experience domestic and family violence than non-Indigenous Australian women. And the Productivity Commission’s 2011 Overcoming Indigenous Disadvantage report says Indigenous women and girls are 31 times more likely to be hospitalised due to domestic and family violence related assaults compared to non-Indigenous women and girls.

    Daily Reminder: All Chinese Stocks Are Scams

    Dr. Fly Thu Mar 10, 2022 3:15pm
    When I started the business in the late 90s, one thing was clear back then: ALL ISRAELI STOCKS WERE SCAMS. Over the years, Israeli companies become more mature and less scammy. Then entered China in the early 2000s and everyone jumped on the bandwagon — but I was not fooled. Inside my data platforms, now Stocklabs, I quarantine all Chinese stocks in a group called “Chinese Burritos.” It doesn’t matter what the fucking company does because I assume it’s all bullshit and their shares more or less trade as one.

    Today Chinese stocks are down more than 6% in on top of losses of 50%+ the past 12 months. If you’re a China bull: you’ve been completely dispatched and much much more.

    I almost wasn’t gonna look up the news, since it’s always the same story. Lo and behold, accounting issues. For those who’ve been around awhile will remember I once sold short all Chinese stocks that used this one accounting firm — since they were running a scam. I forget the name and this doesn’t help from a journalistic point of view — but if you’re really curious fuck off and search my archives.

    Today’s bad news.

    China watchers believe this is likely because the Securities and Exchange Commission has identified five U.S.-listed American depositary receipts of Chinese companies (Yum China, BeiGene, Zai Lab, ACM Research and HUTCHMED) for failing to adhere to the Holding Foreign Companies Accountable Act (HFCAA).

    ADRs are securities that represent shares of non-U.S. companies, and they are traded on U.S. exchanges.

    The act, which was passed in 2020, permits the SEC to ban companies from trading and be delisted from U.S. exchanges if American regulators are not able to review company audits for three consecutive years.

    These are the first China ADRs to be identified as failing to adhere to the HFCAA. These five companies are on the list because they recently filed their annual reports with the SEC.

    “All the Chinese listed ADRs will likely end up on the list, because none of them will be able to comply with requests to have their audits reviewed,” said Brendan Ahern, chief investment officer at KraneShares, told me. This is “because Chinese law prohibits the auditor to provide their review to U.S. regulatory authorities,” he added.

    Needless to say, I won’t be buying this dip.

  81. More of the biography of “the troubled teenager..”

    By age 13, he regularly drank alcohol and smoked ‘gunja’ (cannabis) daily.

    He would steal spray cans from adults in Yuendumu to inhale the petrol, paint or deodorant that he was addicted to despite saying they “made him feel dizzy and hurt his brain”.

    And at age 13 his behaviour escalated to a new level. He broke into buildings, damaged property and vandalised vehicles.

    In April 2014 he broke into and trashed the Yuendumu Medical Clinic and the newly built early childhood learning centre, causing an estimated $130,000 of damage.

    This is the same clinic from which staff would later be evacuated, due to their fear over break-ins, on the morning of Kumanjayi Walker’s fatal shooting in November 2019.

    There was a further estimated $100,000 damage done to the water tower that night which Kumanjayi Walker was suspected to have been involved in.

    He told others, at the time, he did the damage because he was bored and “for fun”.

    The Yuendumu Night Patrol reported seeing Kumanjayi Walker wandering around the community every night.

    ‘Grandma’ Jean Brown said she would go looking for him at night to try to stop him from wandering around the community after dark but she also made excuses for him.

    “He gets angry when other kids tease him – he goes off his head,” she said.

    Around this time a female government worker who visited the family had to be hidden for her own safety when Mr Walker threatened to “smash” her with an iron bar.

    On April 29, a Yuendumu community meeting took place where everyone present agreed that those who had destroyed the medical clinic and child care centre should be punished.

    Kumanjayi Walker came to that meeting to identify the others involved, naming three young children aged between 7 and 11.

    Kumanjayi Walker was barely a teenager, but he was effectively homeless, without a responsible adult to care for him.

    The Mount Theo Outstation was reluctant to have him back, and Ms Oldfield said he should return to live with Jean and Allan in Yuendumu.

    “I would like him to go hunting and do men’s things,” she said.

    “Allan will take him out bush and he knows about his problem,” referring to the boy’s mental health problems.

    “He can’t sit still. He would get up every five minutes. He gets angry when someone gets him upset and when he gets teased.

    “Arnold would listen to Allan; sometimes when he stays with me, he gets angry”.

    Another of Kumanjayi Walker’s grandmothers, Katrina Brown, who sometimes cared for him, said he didn’t listen to her either.

    In mid-2014 it was agreed Kumanjayi Walker, now 13, would live with BushMob, a residential program to help marginalised young people – but he was reluctant to go, threatening the adults who tried to encourage him.

    In the weeks that followed, new incidents occurred.

    First he graffitied the school bus. BushMob staff – aware of his ‘like’ for graffiti – tried to turn this into a positive interest by “providing him with materials to allow him a creative outlet by pro-social means”.

    Then Kumanjayi Walker took a knife from the kitchen and threatened another boy, whom he accused of teasing him.

    He stole a car and assaulted a 12-year-old boy, eventually leaving the BushMob program.

    At 15 — after dozens more episodes of stealing cars, damaging property and fighting with other youths — he moved in with his grandmother, Margaret Brown, at house 511 in Yuendumu.

  84. long covid recovery

    major symptoms of long covid are shortness of breath, POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), chronic fatigue, mast cell activation, endothelial dysfunction, platelet activation and microclotting.

    an obvious symptom is tachycardia, erratic or high heart rate . Other symptoms include skin rashes, hair falling out, tinnitus, dysmotility. shortness of breath is very common. erratic blood pressure. sore joints. mental fog. fatigue. among many other symptoms.

    none of this constitutes medical advice and any treatments should be discussed with a health professional.

    the best bet for treatments is the I-recover protocol. this is politically incorrect as they recommend ivermectin.

    doctors who work with the protocol have said that the combination of ivermectin and prednisone has been described as magical in some patients. dosage are as per the above protocol. it works.

    they have since added low dose naltrexone. the pharmacology is available on youtube, but basically it interrupts the inflammation chain cause by the persistent viral debris. only 50mg naltrexone is available from india. to make 1mg dosage, dissolve a 50mg tablet in 50ml of water and use a 1ml eye dropper to dose to recommended levels.

    statins are critical part of the protocol. any statin will work. the pharmacology behind the statins is that they are a fractalkine antagonist. elevated fractalkine levels are caused by damaged white blood cells called monocytes that have choked on S1 spike protein and have stuck themselves to endothelial cells using fractalkine as a glue. these dysfunctional monocytes create a cascade of downstream immune dysfunction. fractalkine also prevent these damaged immune cells from normal apoptosis process ie dying and they persist indefinitely causing inflammation and in particular the immune system causes damage to endothelial lining in blood vessels in trying to put out the alarm raised by these monocytes. these dysfunctional monocytes are particularly activated by exercise.

    the statins unglue these damaged cells and also unblock the apoptosis pathway so they can be killed. the statins work for most long covid sufferers, however treatment can take months. while any statin will work, the preferred statin is pravastatin, which is now in short supply in india.

    doctors are forbidden from prescribing any of the above as they are all off-label uses of medication.

    micro-clotting is more serious outcome of covid infection. testing is unavailable at normal laboratories and the only test to confirm micro-clotting is a TEG blood test in hospitals.

    micro-clotting will result in various downstream immune dysfunction. treatment is available if you can convince a hospital to test for it. the clotting however can be self-treated with nattokinase or other kinases. no prescription is required. nattokinase is incompatible with blood thinners and even baby aspirin. nattokinase should be taken with extra vitamin K2 and at least 2 hours away from food. should not be taken if you have any risk of internal bleeding, strokes etc. nattokinase has been shown to digest S1 spike protein. it works.

    another recent discovery is metabolic dysfunction, quite possibly mitochondrial damage. no treatments are currently available. this causes a large amount of downstream dysfunction. however doctors have found loading up on niacin to be highly beneficial. 35mg-100mg niacin 3 times per day.

    Not common, but not unheard of.

    I have very little recollection of my childhood before I was 5, I remember my sister’s birth (at home) and my grandfather’s (mum’s side) death both when I was 4 (1952) but the most vivid memory is from when I was 3 years old my grandmother & an aunt took me with them when they went to see a gypsy fortune-teller at the local, yearly, fair..
    They both had their fortunes told.. I don’t remember their details other than Grandma would pass at 76 & my auntie at 84 .. both of these events panned out!
    As for me 2 things stood out and I’ve gone thru life without doubting the 2nd .. the 1st tho important wasn’t big in my memory until it happened! .. I would have a serious & prolonged illness in my 60s .. I was diagnosed with Cancer at 63 and given the all clear at 66 .. soooo the 2nd memory took on its full significance!.. I will be here until, at least, 82 (2030) .. nowadays I accept that I have a while to go so never, ever worried about BAT FLU from start to finish (which may be never if the gummint getz it’s way .. LOL!) tho not knowing the how does annoy me a bit .. I don’t really care how far past 82 I get but I would prefer it to be whilst I’m still as healthy as I am today rather than something that requires me being in care ..
    3 grandees will reach 21, 3 more will be mid to late teens and the remaining 2 about to start high school by my 82nd burfday when, being an optimist, I fully expect to swim 1500 mts in a tad over 2 hours .. LOL!

    I wish to add to those comments what my grandmother (b. 1894) told me in her elderly years (she lived to 99yrs).
    She arrived in Walgett, from Sydney, in 1913 after marrying my grandfather (born Walgett 1891) and was horrified that after the stockmen would arrive in town, they would have a feed, clean up and go straight to the Camp by the river and choose whatever Aboriginal woman they wanted. There was no policing of this. It was just how it was.

  132. Ex-SAS soldier told ‘a lot of people’ Roberts-Smith was a bully, court hears
    Michaela Whitbourn
    By Michaela Whitbourn
    March 11, 2022 — 1.48pm

    A former elite soldier has told the Federal Court that he doubted whether Ben Roberts-Smith should have been awarded the Victoria Cross, Australia’s highest military honour, and he told “a lot of people” the war veteran was a bully.

    Person 43, a former Special Air Service soldier who was medically discharged from the Defence Force in 2017, gave evidence in Mr Roberts-Smith’s defamation case in Sydney on Friday that the only witnesses to the acts for which his former comrade was awarded the Victoria Cross in January 2011 were members of Mr Roberts-Smith’s own team.

    He believed this cast doubt on the award, which was conferred on Mr Roberts-Smith for his actions in a 2010 battle in Tizak, Afghanistan, during which the SAS came under fire from Taliban machine gunners.

    The process by which Mr Roberts-Smith was considered for the award was conducted “in secrecy, without involvement of the rest of the [SAS] troop”, Person 43 said. He had expressed the view that “it is in doubt and there should have been more investigation before awarding it”.

    “Are you sure you’re not bitter about not getting an award?” Mr Roberts-Smith’s barrister, Arthur Moses, SC, said.

    “Very sure,” Person 43 replied. “I’m not an attention seeker; I don’t want any awards.”

    But he admitted he did not witness Mr Roberts-Smith’s actions in Tizak. Person 43 agreed he still held the view that the award of the Victoria Cross was shrouded in doubt, and said he told a “lot of people” that Mr Roberts-Smith was a bully.

    “Did Mr Roberts-Smith bully you?” Mr Moses asked. “No,” Person 43 replied.

    Asked about his feelings towards his former comrade now, Person 43 admitted: “I don’t particularly like him.”

    Person 43 was called this week to give evidence for The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Canberra Times in the defamation suit filed against the mastheads by Mr Roberts-Smith.

    Mr Roberts-Smith alleges a series of articles published in 2018 portray him as a war criminal. The newspapers are seeking to rely on a defence of truth and allege Mr Roberts-Smith committed or was involved in six murders of Afghans under the control of Australian troops, when they cannot be killed under the rules of engagement.

    Person 43 gave evidence on Thursday that he was involved in capturing an elderly Afghan man in a tunnel during a mission with Australian soldiers in 2009, countering a claim by Mr Roberts-Smith that no men were taken from the tunnel.

    The newspapers allege that two men were taken from the tunnel and that Mr Roberts-Smith asked another soldier, Person 4, to shoot one of the men, and shot the second man himself.

    Mr Roberts-Smith has said he did not order any killing but shot one combatant in battle, and that no men were discovered in the tunnel at Whiskey 108.

    Person 43 rejected as “ridiculous” suggestions by Mr Moses that the events he described at Whiskey 108 were a “story”, and insisted he had “told facts”.

    The trial continues.

    You’d have to ask St Ruth.
    As far as I can tell I think he is talking about fellatio involving men only and, if I may say so, he seems just a little bit too obsessed for my liking.
    It doesn’t seem to be a complimentary term.
    Also, he refers to “shallow cock-smokers” so presumably there are “deep cock-smokers” as well.
    But, again, it is St Ruth’s area of expertise so I’ll leave it to him to explain.

    An utterly absurd concept, shamelessly ripped off from peoples far more noble and useful that exist in North America.

    indodgenees do not deserve to be referred to as anything remotely honourable. They are a joke. Blaming whitey is over. If the frogs, the portuguese, the dutch or heaven help, the belgians had settled this continent indodgenees would have been have been wiped out centuries ago.

    Or perhaps indodgenees would have preferred to have been a very temporary part of the Greater South East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere?

    The ongoing and seemingly interminable abuse of indodgenous women and kiddies on this continent is a disgrace – and it is all thanks to soft white collectivist inner city racists enabling braindead drug and alcohol fuelled indodgenous meatheads** to claim they’re enacting sacred stone age rites.

    I did ivm+pred+statin. felt worst 1st few days then started improving. huge improvement by end of 2nd week. ran out of ivm. added nattokinase again noticeable improvements. got hit by some flu like virus and 2 weeks later got hit by omicron. fortunately got a new batch of ivm 1st day of omicron and bounced out of that in 3-4 days.

    to date I have been bounced around between specialists for a year with no diagnosis and zero treatment all the while slowly going downhill. had to do all my own research and treat myself. took me about 6 months to piece the puzzle together that it finally clicked that it was almost certainly long covid.

    my GP was too scared of being pulled up for prescribing off label meds, he went to health dept and was told no you can’t prescribe off label meds for long covid from FLCCC. JC came to the rescue and helped me out for which I am very grateful.

    I used to make ginger beer all the time when I was a kid, used to keep the jar near the window and feed it every day.
    Had a collection of those red top Tarax bottles for the finished product, occasionally there was an explosion.

    We got into it for a while when I was a kid. Mostly the drink was put into glass Slade’s bottles with aluminium (?) caps as that was what we had to hand, but we did have a couple of old Marchant’s bottles with red stoppers and a rubber seal. The Slade’s bottles never fizzed up on opening, so when we took a Marchant’s bottle to a very soggy church picnic (everyone ended up eating in their own car) we though there was no risk opening the bottle inside the car.

    Turned out there was a lot of pressure inside. Went everywhere. It was a good thing that HK Kingwood’s interiors were all vinyl and metal. Very washable! 😀

    This is from the Wiki entry on South Dakota’s infamous Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

    In a 2005 interview, Cecilia Fire Thunder, the first female president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, noted, “[Sixty-eight] percent of the college graduates on the reservation are women. Seventy percent of the jobs are held by women. Over 90 percent of the jobs in our schools are held by women.”[60]

    The 2010 U.S. Census counted 18,834 individuals living on the Pine Ridge Reservation. The vast majority (16,906) identified as American Indian.[61]
    89% of residents are unemployed;
    53.75% of the residents live below the Federal poverty level[61]
    Average per capita income in Oglala Lakota County is $8,768 and ranks as the “poorest” county in the nation.[61]
    The infant mortality rate is five times higher than the national average;
    Native American amputation rates due to diabetes are three to four times higher than the national average;
    Death rate due to diabetes is three times higher than the national average;
    Teen suicide is four times the national average; and
    Average life expectancy on Pine Ridge is 66.81 years, the lowest in the United States. Other statistics, attributed to the Pine Ridge hospital, cite an average life expectancy of just 47 years for men and 55 years for women.

  150. The day after Constable Rolfe shot and killed that career criminal – a slightly latter-day Ricky Slater, but worse – the NT Chief Minister, Michael Gunner very quickly sorted out the NT Commish, Jamie Chalker, to ensure this young copper was charged with murder to shore up his ailing government, which was more on the nose than usual with the indig folk.

    Later that day, he stood at a presser in the desert in front of all sorts of indig, and said ‘consequences would flow’ from the shooting. Three days later, Rolfe was in the cells in Darwin being charged with that murder, thus buying Gunner (and Chalker) some breathing space.

    The ‘consequences would flow’ statement sparked the ire of many at the time, who (rightly, as it turned out) believed that a massive stitch-up would ensue.

    Skip to this afternoon. This was Rolfe’s barrister on the courthouse steps (the NT News):

    “CONSEQUENCES will flow” from what Zach Rolfe’s lawyers claim was an “appalling investigation” and “flawed prosecution” of the NT Police officer, his barrister has warned.

    Speaking outside the Supreme Court after not guilty verdicts were handed down on all charges against Constable Rolfe on Friday, his lead counsel, David Edwardson QC, said there were “no winners in this case”.

    “A young man has died and that’s tragic,” he said.

    “At the same time, Zachary Rolfe, in my view, was wrongly charged in the first place – it was an appalling investigation and that’s very much regrettable.

    “A number of public figures have had quite a lot to say before he was charged and, again, that’s regrettable and unfortunate.

    “But I have one last thing to say – consequences will flow.”

    Get the chequebook out, Gunner. Rolfe wants to come back to work, the indig don’t want him to work, but there is absolutely nothing stopping him starting again now. His parents are already millionaires in their own right. Rolfe might just get a number with seven zeros on the end of it, and good on him if he does.

  151. Kumanjayi Walker’s family demands a ban on police guns in the bush and reform to ‘racist’ criminal justice system

    Representatives of Kumanjayi Walker’s family and of the outback community of Yuendumu have demanded criminal law reform and a ban on police guns in the bush after they failed to achieve “justice” through the murder prosecution of Zachary Rolfe.

    Speaking outside the NT Supreme Court in Darwin, Warlpiri elders voiced their fury that the jury that acquitted the young constable did not include any Warlpiri or noticeably Aboriginal people.

    They said the system was “racist” and ignored traditional law.

    Ned Jampijinpa Hargraves described the unanimous verdict as “another sad day” and shouted towards the NT Legislative Assembly building: “When are we going to get justice?” “No guns in remote communities – we don’t want no guns,” he said.

    “Enough is enough. It has got to stop … we don’t want to see another black young fella or a girl get shot.”

    Warren Japanangka Williams said he and others from the Red Centre region travelled far to Darwin expecting “neutral ground where we could have a multicultural jury”.

    “We felt left out. Are we not part of Australia?” he asked. “We want Yapa people on juries who can hear or tell other jury members how we see it; it’s always Kardiya (non-Aboriginal) people seeing it through their eyes.”

    Mr Williams also questioned why Constable Rolfe was bailed on murder charges for more than two years when Aboriginal people facing lesser charges were routinely held on remand.

    “The justice system seems to be really dishonest; it helps Kardiya avoid justice instead of making them accountable,” he said.

    “In our law … if someone kills someone else, they get speared across both legs, and that finishes the conflict. Zachary should face the Yapa system law, I think.”

    Valerie Napaljarri Martin said the court system had not “recognised the needs of Warlpiri people”, leaving them feeling “so empty”. ”We are the First Nations people, but we are still being disrespected and ignored all the time,” she said.

    “We are all so full of anger and grief. It is a racist system that we’ve got here in Australia … we demand an end to guns in our communities. Look what happened during the trial: a young fella, the same age as Kumanjayi, was shot six times in Palmerston.”

    She also called for more support to help elders keep young people out of jails.

  156. The council purchased the 49ha parcel of land off Coolum-Yandina Rd in May, 2014, for $1.65m after the cane land was sold less than two years’ prior for $770,000.

    This part pricked my spidey senses. Property sells less than 2 years prior then more than doubles in value when the council buys… Would like to see who bought it, their associations or business interests.

    May be innocent but a lot of this goes on in LGA’s and is never scrutinised while ratepayers cop multiple CPI rises.

  157. North Australian Aboriginal Justice Agency chief executive Priscilla Atkins said: “Lessons must be learnt by police from this tragedy. Aboriginal people must be safe in deals with police.

    “Police need to change how they act in Aboriginal communities. Guns are not the way.’’

  158. Because he is nearing his war objectives of claiming the eastern prefectures in Ukraine?

    That was a forgone conclusion. Additionally Kiev is effectively surrounded, Kharkiv and Mariupol are under Russian control with a land bridge established to Crimea from Russia.

    It will be interesting to see what Putin wants from Zhelensky with respect to de-nazification and Nato status guarantees. I don’t see the Azov Brigades walking away scott free.

  159. Wow, how much did I miss. Was up over the Mingela Range in the more remote Northern Goldfields & Upper Flinders, very little mobile service.

    Shane Warne gone, Kitching same, something about flooding down south (Please send some here apart from scattered storms an oppressive mid 40’s every day) and Vlad still pretty well much on similar lines when I left. Heading back up Monday for another fortnight, hope the next 10 isn’t as eventful!!!

    Read a good book in my off time but the author does get a little emotional towards the end. QF72 The untold story, interesting POV from the pilot. Top Ender got one of your books for the next swing.

  160. Cleared: Zachary Rolfe lashes top cops after acquitted of all charges

    Zachary Rolfe, the Northern ­Territory police constable acquitted of murdering indigenous man Kumanjayi Walker in the remote town of Yuendumu, says he was “thrown under the bus’’ by police leadership to appease an angry crowd and arrested despite “evidence that cleared me’’.

    In a verdict delivered on Friday, a jury found Constable Rolfe not guilty of three charges – murder, manslaughter and engaging in a violent act causing death – relating to Walker’s shooting in the central NT community of Yuendumu in November 2019.

    The jury, chosen from the Darwin region, handed down its unanimous decision after about six hours of deliberation.

    The trial became a racial flashpoint after Walker’s death sparked indigenous protests around the country in late 2019 and was picked up by the Black Lives Matter movement.

    It renewed debate around the effects of alcohol and violence in remote communities, the operation of the justice system and the use of guns by police.

    After the verdict, Walker’s supporters argued that the justice system had failed them and paid no heed to traditional law.

    It’s an almost theological argument – does “traditional law” have any place in the twenty first century?

    The mailman’s camels have just delivered “Zero Hour in Broome.” Looking forward to reading that book.

  162. took me about 6 months to piece the puzzle together that it finally clicked that it was almost certainly long covid.

    what I found was exercise kept triggering the problems. prednisone was able to put the fire out , but any form of exercise triggered a flare up of symptoms. this is virtually a universal sign of long covid. pred did not by itself address the underlying cause.

    a company call incelldx is at the cutting edge of research and treatment for long covid. these are the people that developed retrovirals for HIV. they examined people with long covid and found S1 spike protein inside certain types of monocytes. they also found these dysfunctional monocytes to be extremely sticky to endothelial blood vessel lining. they also looked at a large number of cytokines to identify what was going on. from this they were able to deduce that fractalkine was one key to dislodging these damaged cells. statins are fractalkine antagonists, they started long covid patients on statins and sure enough people started getting better.

    they now have a 14 cytokine panel blood test from which they prescribe various off label meds. the only way to get this is to go to the US. this also covers vaccine injuries.

    You’ll never be appointed to the High Court asking those sort of questions.

    The ongoing and seemingly interminable abuse of indodgenous women and kiddies on this continent is a disgrace – and it is all thanks to soft white collectivist inner city racists enabling braindead drug and alcohol fuelled indodgenous meatheads** to claim they’re enacting sacred stone age rites.

    Eloquently put, Rabz.
    May I steal it?

    I’m going back quite a few years, but two of the young roosters, in one of the outback communities – Wiluna ? – were charged with some fairly serious cases involving teenage girls, and granted bail. They claimed that whitefella law didn’t apply, and they would accept “traditional tribal law.”

    “Traditional tribal law” involved two very large stones…..and said young roosters were looking for a lift out of Wiluna, and as far away as they could get……..

    Under the beneficent rule of King Winston, who in His Wisdom will set up the Office of Royal Accountant and General Investigator of Dodgy Shit, this particular transaction would be examined under the Justice Microscope and the miscreants would be promptly donating their organs to the Royal Organ Bank.

  167. I see that tje Kenworth King now declares Australia is the DeAtH CaMp he has been Nuffing about all this time

    You don’t do much, do you comrade?

    Frigging unionists.

    You see nothing.
    You’re a sandwich short of a picnic.

    Not the brightest bulb in the dark room.

    A few bricks short of a wall

    Not the sharpest knife in the drawer

    A few cards short of a deck

    As sharp as a marble

    With one oar in the water

    Your elevator doesn’t go all the way to the top floor

    Lights are on, but nobody’s home

    Fell out of the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down

    Took an IQ test and the results came back negative

    Dumb as a box of rocks
    and

    pissing in the wind.
    You couldn’t find your own arse with two hands and a mirror

    And I reckon you’re a cock smoker.
    I thought you’d be thankful as I actually had to go and give you an uptick to get your little mates started on it.
    Who needs enemies , hey?

    Winston – trying to articulate my frustration with events outside of Sydney.
    Steal away.

    Tell us a story, Rabz – you’ve been very quiet lately. Meanwhile I have discovered a slab of XXXX Bitter that is perilously close to its use by date, so duty calls.
    But seriously, there are many things that increase our frustration levels above the norm.
    Unload.

  169. Turns out that Dulux Snowy Mountains is the stuff that’s needed.

    see, it has an ever so slight green tinge to it and if you consider the whole colour wheel thingy, we apparently need to balance all the red and umber in the wood and those fucking floor tiles.

    tonally, after paying for a colour consultant, I’m much more informed today that I was last week

    struth was right … worth every cent

  170. Rockdoctor and Zulu, if you got hold of a copy of ZHIB you’re lucky – it’s been out of print for a while and secondhand ones are a bit too pricey.
