The work on the Notre Dame has progressed considerably since my last visit. Violet de Luc’s 19 century spire has been replaced with an identical one.
I noticed de Luc also did some restoration work on the great hall next to the cathedral in Sens, damaged when the south? tower of the cathedral collapses.
Incidentally it wasn’t Macron who wanted contemporary stained glass, it was the Archbishop who had asked the government for one set of six contemporary windows in a side altar. Not all the stained class was damaged.

Re Trump on KRudd

Many guffaws when we were at the club on Thursday night and I mentioned this.
Even the most non political amongst us agreed it was an apt disrcription from Trump.

Unfortunately the “Bloodbath” comment was taken out of context (as per FMIC) so I had to set them straight on that one.

The MSM is on the nose.

Rasmussen Poll: Most Say Media ‘Enemy of the People’ (22 Mar)

After former President Donald Trump’s recent “bloodbath” comment about the auto industry, 60% of voters say the news media are “the enemy of the people,” a Rasmussen poll found.

On whether the media are “truly the enemy of the people,” 79% of Republicans, 60% of independents, and 41% of Democrats at least somewhat agree.

You have to wonder when they will work it out that alienating at least half of their potential audience is bad for business.

I see the palace has finally admitted what I felt likely from the outset: Kates lengthy stay in hospital, and protracted convalescence after ‘abdominal surgery’ was indicative of cancer.

So that makes 4 royals going down with cancer in the last few years (can anyone remember any previously?) Queen Elizabeth (blood cancer), Charles (unspecified but likely bladder), Fergie (Melanoma and Breast) and now Kate (unspecified).

Its starting to look like the British Royals weren’t in the control group after all.

I understand William and Kate wanting to protect their children from anxiety about their mother’s health though they should have made this public before now to stem the wild speculation. They should have known that it would come out eventually. It would have been nice to be trusted.

MTG Files Motion to Strip Gavel from Mike Johnson (22 Mar)

There won’t be a vote for a couple weeks for procedural reasons. Given the tiny majority the Republicans have it would not take more than Ms Green and a few others to knock him off, assuming the Dems vote to vacate. That would be tempting since more chaos in the Republican Party would be very welcome for them, what with all the messes the WH is mired in. On the other hand propping up Johnson would be nearly as good since he’d then be a lame duck.

I wonder when GOP Speaker candidates will get the message that they have to do the job they were voted in to do?

BoN, you only have to look at the unhinged ramblings of mutley, with his jism degree to understand why the msm is in the state its in. What I don’t understand is how the proprietors allowed to happen in the first place. It wasn’t power coz they already had it.
Money? Most likely. Media has never been harder since the internet, which hastened the demise of classified ads, their biggest source of income, but papers have been going broke for ever. I’ve known two editors of a small city newspaper that wouldn’t have put up with the drivel of mutley jism. The way governments are controlling mis-information, false information and straight out lies, which is what the first two are anyway shows me they know the MSM is going the way of the horse and cart. What we do know is the lies are generated by government solely to prevent their removal from the trough.

Moscow terror attack: ISIS claims responsibility for fatal shooting at Crocus City Hall (22 Mar)

ISIS has now claimed responsibility for a major terrorist attack on a concert hall in Moscow, Russia, on Friday night.

According to reports, ISIS has claimed the attack was specifically attempting to target a gathering of Christians.

I don’t know enough to say whether this is true or just an opportunistic bit of propaganda since ISIS has been out of the news lately. On the other hand the US warned that something like this was in the pipeline, and they’ve been tracking ISIS for a long time, so it’s plausible they heard from a source in place.

My solution to the Indigenous aimlessness crisis

We walked around the town looking for a meal and a beer. Alice Springs is not scary, but the town has a lot of bored black people on the streets, some of them bored and drunk. Most are kids. Unemployment, ice and alcohol are scourges in our community. Suspicion of government is rife, involvement in available health services is low.
Why?
Well, you run your country perfectly for 100,000 years and then one day the whole thing is snatched away from you. You get treated like animals, shot and raped, the church tells lies about your culture, the school history lessons advise of your inferiority, people gnash their teeth about whether or not to include you in the Constitution. Then see how resilient you are.
Traumas like that do not go away quickly, but how have some families risen above the reverberations of dispossession and others have descended into endless desperation and the poverty that haunts misfortune? Many families have not had an employed person beneath their roof for over three generations. You cannot mount a resistance to dispossession while living under such relentless disadvantage.
So, here’s the dream.

We point out to the government that of all the millions made from Indigenous food, only 1 per cent goes to Aboriginal people. We tell them that we will take over all their Aboriginal employment programs and train our people to reform Australian forests and national parks by thinning and cool burning. We employ thousands and thousands in the forests and, in the agriculture and food industry, we employ thousands more.

Professor Marcia Langton, Associate Provost at Melbourne University, cautions that many of our people aren’t work ready and it’s true. So many Aboriginal people have no experience with the demands of work and planning for it. It is not beyond us, but it is learnt behaviour; you learn it by watching your parents do it, not from a dopey training program designed only to calm the hearts of decent Australians.
I have seen Aboriginal people trained and trained to do menial tasks by non-Aboriginal people who are simply going through the motions, knowing that there is no job available.
On the other hand, I have seen Aboriginal people trained by other Aboriginal people with entirely different results. It works when slackness isn’t tolerated. Government programs can’t do this because they are toy programs, there is no urgency or real expectation of them being completed or honoured.

On the farm, the jobs have to get done, your brothers and sisters depend on your commitment. In the forest it works the same, it requires a team to make the job safe. If someone is away, the job can’t be completed and everybody suffers.
For that commitment and skill you get paid, your children have shoes, their teeth are fixed and nobody, nobody can tell you what to do.
I have stood in Centrelink queues with Aboriginal people who have needed support in putting their case. It is demoralising, a waste of time and energy, and the department owns you. Many of the staff are good people but their rules mean they have to treat adults like children and that means people learn to behave like children; always in the naughty corner.
I see a different future. I see us being able to honour our relationship with Mother Earth to improve Australian agriculture and forestry. We can develop a truly Australian cuisine based on the old food production techniques and, instead of stealing it from us, Australia pays us for the produce and, in doing so, we reduce carbon emissions, we preserve scarce water resources and we build soil, because ours are Australian plants, they do not have to be coddled like hothouse flowers.
These are not platitudes, we actually perform these miracles on the farm, but it’s not magic, it’s the result of simply treating Australia like herself.
In the dream I see our community buy one of the four bakeries which have closed down in our district over the past few years. We train our kids to be bakers and retailers, then we buy the local pub and turn it into a top-class cafe and restaurant. We train our people to be chefs and waiters, managers, retailers.
We buy the old petrol station which closed a decade ago and turn it into an electric vehicle recharge hub. Then we buy the tour boat and train half a dozen young people to get a coxswain’s certificate (to allow them to operate a boat in sheltered waters) and run bird and history tours around the lakes. Recently we could have bought all of those things for less than $1 million. I have seen stores of boots and clothing for abandoned training programs worth twice that amount.

What an investment it would be. What a return on the country’s investment. What pride and independence for the people. I think we could make massive change to our country very cheaply but Australia will have to let go of its mission complex. Don’t contemplate what can be done to fix Aboriginal people but instead begin thinking about how depleted Australian forests and farms can be revived with Aboriginal involvement.
I look forward to the day when Australians think nothing of eating seared lily root and roo curry with kangaroo grass bread and warrigal green tapenade.
Looking west from our farm, a flat hill can be seen as a blue blur between two closer mounts. Yuin man Graham Moore told us this is the giant damper that two greedy brothers tried to hide to have all to themselves. To punish their selfishness, Daramah, the great creator, called up a violent wind which felled the trees and brought the damper down on the brothers, killing them.
Many of our legends are about the sin of greed, but they also remind us that the story of breadmaking is attached to our soil, that we are following a tradition so ancient that it has its own story etched in the land. The old people prepared their bread and tubers right where we do and the cautionary tale of the greedy brothers peeps at us from the surrounding hills. We are reassured that we are following ancient lore.

Some have said baking was unknown in southern districts but there are several stories which make it obvious that breads were made all over Australia. The greedy brothers’ story is told in many locations and we are glad to have our local version of the tale but, more importantly, it is a daily reminder, as we look up from the labour in the paddocks, that bread is part of our culture. We are aware of ancient food provision when we turn up stone tools. We found a wonderful edge-ground axe near our shed.

 I am convinced that when the Australian people recognise Aboriginal people as the first peoples and acknowledge that the country was stolen from a viable society and economy all sorts of justice will flow. That justice is pent-up in the Australian people. You can feel it. Australia wants to take this step but some politicians and journalists cannot let go of the keys to the mission gate.
Those people are hanging on to a roast beef and royal coach idea of Australia and, like the megafauna, seem unaware that they themselves are disappearing. Feel sorry for Dino if you wish, but don’t let him flirt with the worst side of your nature.

Dino, piss off and hunt sparrows, we’re going to look after the golden whistler, the lyrebird and dingo; we want to be free, we want to be Australians.

Perfect care according to Pascoe.
The constant burning of the landscape directly led to the dominance of the eucalypt and other fire tolerant and fire spreading species.
Pollen records show a highly diverse species mix before the fifty thousand year mark. That species landscape aided a more humid and water retentive ground surface. The subsoil was rich in biological humic activity which then supported the well nourished plants that fed the mega fauna.
What changed Bruce?

Obama: “Understand, it’s not necessary for people to believe this information in order to weaken democratic institutions.

You just have to flood a country’s public square with enough raw sewage. You just have to raise enough questions, spread enough dirt, plant enough conspiracy theorizing, that citizens no longer know what to believe.

Once they lose trust in their leaders, in mainstream media, in political institutions, in each other, in the possibility of truth, the game is won.”

Journalists are now reporting that according to emergency services 40 people have been killed, over 100 have been injured. Firefighters have escorted a hundred people out of the burning building, more may be still inside.

Obviously, it’s a repeat play of the attack from 2 decades ago by Putin’s intel, and this time instead of blaming the Chechens, he blames Ukraine.

Everything is ‘fine’.

He’s misinterpreted the lines. One is average hourly earnings, while the other shows interest payments by quarter. It’s a ridiculous comparison because either you have to break-down interest payment by the hour of show earnings by the quarter. It doesn’t show what he suggests it does.

Stephen King was a writer of considerable talent who produced some original and well-crafted works: think The Shining, Christine, and The Stand.

Then he got into cocaine and got belted by a car when he was walking along the side of a road. Some of the books were written when in the throes of the drugs and it shows – check out The Tommyknockers for convoluted rubbish woven around a good idea. He breaks Orwell’s Third Rule of Writing constantly: “If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.”

King has TDS in a big way, and still can’t control himself. Even the Guardian review linked above says:

The book has plenty of references to contemporary TV and music, as well as allusions to changing demographics and progressive politics. (Not a single chance is missed to put the boot into Trump.)

Bus driver booted for stopping robbery:

Robert was behind the wheel of the 250 bus, operating between the Brisbane suburbs of Redland Bay and Carindale, on February 18.

At about 1pm, three teenagers boarded the vehicle and allegedly stole belongings off another young passenger.

Attempting to exit the bus, the victim in pursuit, Robert decided to step in when things started to get out of hand.

Three days later, he received a call from Transdev telling him he was fired for misconduct.

‘The victim gave chase and was set upon, at which point the driver intervened,’ a Transport Workers Union (TWU) spokesman said.

‘The driver intervened by verbally and physically separating the youths to prevent a further attack.’

Two of the teenagers stopped, with Robert grabbing a third by the shoulders and pulling him off the young passenger.

‘He wasn’t even struggling, I think he wanted to be stopped,’ the bus driver told 9News.

‘It could have been my kid… you just see some kid being booted and kicked you gotta stop it.’

‘I just want my job back,’ Robert said.

Queensland Police have backed the bus driver’s response, adding the teenager may have received far worse injuries, or even death, if he did not intervene.

A 16-year-old boy was charged over the incident after facing Cleveland Children’s Court on March 1.

The Transport Workers Union is working with Robert to file an unfair dismissal claim.

Woddenhead, refrain from talking about things you don’t understand, and that’s pretty much everything you comment about, you meathead. FDR devalued the greenback to gold, which meant a rise in the general price level. Unless the quantity of gold increased, the government could not have “profited” as it’s just a renomination.

You moron, without parallel, Woddenhead. The 1993 confiscation was an action by the FDR administration to bar gold trading outside of the government monopoly so that the US government set the price of gold. The intention wasn’t to profit from it, you (always) angry mental pygmy.

If there was a gold market outside official price, which I think was around $20 (and change), the administration believed that would cause havoc with the monetary regime it was attempting to establish. They wanted to create room so that the US government could have a wide span to maneuver monetary policy.

Go take the Porsche Miata for a drive and STFU, you economic illiterate limey crook.

Flabby noodle-armed trans-protesters get their arses handed to them (the Hun):

Violent scenes have broken out at a women’s rights rally in Melbourne’s CBD, as pro-transgender counter protestors clashed with frontline police and other activists.

The groups, which had gathered outside state parliament on Spring St, clashed just before 1pm on Saturday as passers-by watched on in horror.

Pro-transgender activists had turned up to counter a #WomenWillSpeak rally, held by the Women’s Action Group.

But scenes turned ugly when pro-trans supporters attempted to push through a police line, which resulted in officers tackling at least two protestors on the ground before deploying pepper spray.

Finally, VicJack Inc picked the right targets.

A violent brawl then erupted in front of dozens of people sitting outside the popular Cricketers Bar on Spring St.

A man, dressed in black and carrying a large tripod with a mobile phone, who had allegedly been antagonising transgender supporters was set upon by the counter-protestors.

Briefly. There is vision of this attached to the piece. A number of hags apparently composed entirely of cellulite and chin hair got ipped over nicely. Then:

Police were then forced to keep a group of patrons at the nearby Imperial Hotel separated from pro-transgender activists leaving the rally.

There would have been bits of trans activists smeared all over Spring Street, otherwise.

Guaranteed Victoria’s public system’s ‘mental health units’ will be overloaded with squealy bearded nuffy dunderheads with fake vaginas made from penis skin right now.

You whinging lot of bastards, no bloody guts you got

I hope the bloody boat goes down and drowns the bloody lot

Since you’ve been out in Aussie you’ve done nothing else but moan

You’re just a whinging lot of bastards and you should have stayed at home

You thought you’d pick up sovereigns in our bloody streets

You thought you’d make your fortune after being out here a day

Oh great, thanks for pointing out the typo, Woddenhead. It was 1933, not 1993.
 
 
Look, you limey cretin. From 1929 to 1932, US GDP was sawn in half, primarily due to FDR’s economic policies. The US administration was looking to cure economic ills as its only objective, as wrongheaded as they were. It was not looking to make a “profit” from confiscation. It was attempting to remove what it believed to be a strait jacket created by the gold standard, and in doing so, they believed they needed to monopolize the price of gold.

But of course, if a numbskull, like you, believes Marty – that the US government tried to confiscate his AI (created in 1985) – you would believe confiscation took place because the US government wanted to make a profit. FMD, you’re one stupid limey crook. Go watch the afternoon movie and pissoff, you worthless cretin.

Both Pb and QA impair spatial learning and memory. Pb activates astrocytes and microglia, which in turn induce the synthesis of QA. We hypothesized increased QA production in response to Pb exposure as a novel mechanism of Pb-neurotoxicity.

ResultsPb exposure increased QA level in the blood (by ~?58%) and increased (p?<?0.05) the number of QA-immunoreactive cells in the cortex, and CA1, CA3 and dentate gyrus regions of the hippocampus, compared to control rats. In separate experiments, QA infusion impaired learning and short-term memory similar to Pb. PSD-95, PP1, and PP2A were decreased (p?<?0.05) in the QA-infused rats, whereas tau phosphorylation was increased, compared to vehicle infused rats.

ConclusionPutting together the results of the two experimental paradigms, we propose that increased QA production in response to Pb exposure is a novel mechanism of Pb-induced neurotoxicity.

Nicotine is an antagonist to quinolonic acid. Quinolonic can Acid is the nasty end product of the L-Tryptophan pathway, and it is the only end product of the D-tryptophan pathway(d-tryptophan is very high in modern wheat and legumes). Quinolonic acid, according to the available research, is involved in ADHD, Schizophrenia, Autism, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. So, it kinda makes sense why this population is more likely to smoke. It raises the possibility that addiction partially the bodies attempt to lower inflammation. Thumb sucking, nail biting and ice chewing also fall into this category of behaviors that are indicative of deficiency or an attempt to achieve redux balance. Just like the grasshopper that will eat, and eat, and eat until it acquires the amount of protein it needs to function… even if it means early death. So, humans are smarter than grass hoppers, and might invent a less toxic route and a more stable dosage to achieve the medicinal properties of nicotine.

From the “Australian.” I’ve posted the whole article.

The brave Diggers who changed the course of the Korean WarOf the handful of fierce battles fought by the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Australian Regiment during the Korean War, none was more crucial to the war’s outcome than the Battle of Kapyong in 1951.
By Tom Gilling

From The Weekend Australian Magazine
March 23, 2024
14 minute read

Those who served in World War II, and were lucky enough to survive, came home to a hero’s welcome. But the reception was markedly different for those returning from the Korean War only a few years later. After being wounded in Korea, evacuated to Japan then sent back to rejoin the fight, Signals Sergeant Jack Gallaway returned to Australia for good in February 1952. The war had been raging for more than 18 months and had more than a year to run. Gallaway, a 25-year-old from Brisbane, had served with the Royal Australian Navy in World War II – he’d volunteered while still at school, and lied about his age – and he was struck by people’s ­indifference to the new conflict raging in the Far East. Gallaway recalled “walking into hotels where I met old friends who said, ‘Where have you been?’ And I said, ‘Korea.’ And they said, ‘What the hell were you doing over there?’”
Other Korean War veterans remembered being rebuffed by RSL clubs ­because “that wasn’t a proper war”.
Overshadowed by the two world wars that preceded it, the Korean War was one of the landmark events of the 20th century, a product of Cold War machinations whose outcome remains bitterly contested to this day. In January this year, more than 70 years after the war ended, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un declared South Korea his country’s “primary foe and invariable principal enemy”, telling the Supreme People’s Assembly that North Korea would no longer pursue reconciliation with South Korea, putting an end to the decades-long pursuit of a peaceful unification.
It was Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, Kim Il Sung, who started the war, sending North Korean troops and tanks across the 38th parallel – the post-war demarcation line that separated the Soviet-aligned north from the US-aligned south – on June 25, 1950. Within hours it was clear that the badly trained and poorly equipped South Korean army was facing catastrophe.
With the Soviets boycotting the United Nations, North Korea ignored a UN resolution calling for an end to the fighting and the immediate withdrawal of its troops. When the UN called for contributions to a US-led multinational force to repel the communist invaders, Australia was among the first nations to respond.

Jack Gallaway witnessed Australians’ ­disdain for communism after taking on a role training new ­recruits at the army’s Puckapunyal camp in Victoria. “We were doing what you might call a pub crawl, walking up Collins Streets [in Melbourne] from one hotel to another. A friend of mine … walked up to a chap selling the Tribune [communist newspaper], snatched his bundle of newspapers, threw them in the gutter and gave him a backhander. We strolled on as if nothing had happened. I ­suppose the communist who was selling the newspapers was accustomed to that sort of treatment. He didn’t call the coppers anyway.”

Before arriving in Korea, Gallaway – like many of his mates – thought of the war as a sideshow to what seemed like an unavoidable confrontation with the Soviet Union. He was right about Australians going into battle against a communist superpower, but wrong about the adversary. China had warned that if UN forces invaded North Korea, it would enter the war on the communist side. After US General Douglas MacArthur pushed his troops all the way to the Chinese border, Mao acted on his threat, sending more than 2 million Chinese soldiers into Korea.
The Royal Australian Navy and the Royal Australian Air Force both played significant roles in the Korean War, but during the most intense period of the conflict most of the hard fighting was done on the ground by soldiers of the 3rd Battalion of the Royal Australian Regiment, known as 3RAR. Of the handful of fierce battles fought by 3RAR during the Korean War, none was more crucial to the war’s outcome than the Battle of Kapyong in 1951. It was here, in a rugged valley north of Seoul, that 3RAR and a battalion of Canadian infantry, supported by New Zealand artillery and American tanks – perhaps 3,000 men in all – had the job of halting the Chinese Spring offensive.

For the Diggers, it was the defining battle of the war – the ultimate expression of Australian military skill, determination and courage. That it happened on the eve of Anzac Day only added to its significance. After the Battle of Kapyong 3RAR would be awarded the rare honour of a Presidential Unit Citation by US President Harry Truman in recognition of its “extraordinary heroism and outstanding performance”. But the battle’s importance went far beyond the bravery and skill of the Diggers who fought it.
The 7km-wide Kapyong Valley was a traditional invasion route for armies marching towards Seoul. “It would have been difficult for a brigade to hold, which is three battalions,” Gallaway recalled later. “If the Chinese had poured through Kapyong they would have been behind the capital, Seoul … behind all of the major headquarters of the United Nations’ army. And the result probably would have been … a withdrawal of the United Nations army from Korea.”
If it weren’t for the disintegration of the 6th South Korean Division, the Diggers would never have been called upon to make a stand at Kapyong. As terrified South Korean soldiers poured south to escape the communist army, the Australians were ordered to occupy high ground overlooking the valley’s main road. Pursuing the South Koreans were 10,000 Chinese soldiers belonging to the 60th Infantry Division.

Two companies, a few hundred men in total, were posted astride the road, with Major Ben O’Dowd’s A Company on Hill 504 commanding the road from the east and Captain Darcy Laughlin’s B Company on a ridge dominating it from the west. Two more companies were in position further back on Hill 504. Holding the summit of Hill 504 was crucial, since losing it would enable the Chinese to fire down on the Australians occupying its western slope and jeopardise the Diggers’ ability to control the road.
While the ground held by B Company was suitable for digging, other areas were too rocky. Some men were able to squeeze into crevices or take cover between rock formations. O’Dowd’s company had to make do with piling up loose stones for protection from enemy fire. The low heather scrub covering the slope was tinder-dry from the bitter Korean winter.

There was little sense of urgency among the Diggers as they took up their positions on the evening of April 23. The information they had received from their commanders was that they should “settle in for a quiet night” before either developing defensive positions where they were, or moving forward. They had done this many times before without firing a shot.
Private John Beresford, a 23-year-old from Murwillumbah in NSW, recalled being told: “There’s nothing to worry about. We’ll be moving first thing in the morning so just dig your pit and have tea and that’ll be it.”
One of those missing from the ­battalion was Jack Gallaway, who’d been injured while travelling in the back of a truck that overturned. Evacuated to a hospital in Japan, Gallaway would miss the ­Battle of Kapyong – but not its aftermath.
As darkness fell, the road through the ­Kapyong Valley was crowded withfleeing South Korean troops, refugees and a growing number of Chinese infiltrators, whose aim was to isolate the Diggers on the western side of the road from the three companies on Hill 504 before circling behind to attack the battalion HQ.
The sight of a South Korean division in headlong retreat, casting off brand new American weapons, clothing and equipment as it went, was nothing new to the Diggers: they had seen the same thing happen on New Year’s Day in response to an earlier Chinese offensive.
Following a well-practised routine, the Australians checked their weapons, then laid out spare ammunition and grenades, and waited. Before long, a full moon rose in the sky, flooding the valley with white light that enabled the Diggers to see for hundreds of metres.
At around 9.30pm the Chinese launched their first attack against five American tanks on the valley floor. Despite the lack of infantry protection, the tanks beat off their attackers before withdrawing to prearranged positions in front of Laughlin’s company.

By now heavy fighting had broken out in the battalion HQ area. This coincided with a second and much more determined Chinese attack against the American tanks. Once again, tank commanders had to direct fire from open hatches, with their heads and upper bodies exposed to sniper fire. Within minutes the commander of each tank was hit by rifle fire; the platoon leader was shot between the eyes and killed. The only way to get the Chinese infantry off the tanks was for the tanks to close their hatches and hose each other with machine-gun fire.
An initial assault on Laughlin’s position was driven off with heavy losses to the enemy, the Diggers able to pick off targets easily in the bright moonlight.
These encounters were clearly the prelude to a full-scale attack aimed at throwing the Australians off the high ground on both sides of the road. Failure to achieve this before daylight would leave the Chinese troops on the valley floor exposed not only to a deadly barrage by US tanks and artillery, Australian mortars and Kiwi gunners, but also to bomb, rocket and ­napalm attacks from aircraft.
The attack on O’Dowd’s company followed a pattern the Australians recognised all too well after their ten months in Korea: a flurry of bugles and whistles as enemy commanders assembled and organised their men, followed by silence as the Chinese soldiers crept up the hill in their noiseless rubber shoes; the clatter of grenades hitting the rocky ground before ­exploding, and finally the infantry assault as Chinese soldiers rose up in the moonlight, ­machine-guns blazing.
After each attack wounded Diggers were removed to the reverse slope, where medic Corporal Nobby Clark and his stretcher-bearers did what they could for them, while fit men rushed to occupy the vacant weapon pits. Casualties did not seem to concern the Chinese, who surged forward over the bodies of their own dead and wounded.
A steady Chinese mortar barrage of both high explosive and incendiary bombs continued throughout the night, the latter setting fire to the dry heather. The combination of thick smoke, burning heather and exploding ammunition caused further misery for the wounded Australian soldiers lying out in the open.
The next attack against Laughlin’s company came at 3.30am, when Chinese soldiers struck from three sides. Despite the presence of two Sherman tanks, the Chinese succeeded in penetrating the company’s perimeter and attacking the company headquarters with rifle and machine-gun fire before being driven off with the loss of as many as half their strength killed.
O’Dowd’s position on the eastern side of the road remained precarious. His company suffered 50 casualties that night holding its ground against wave after wave of Chinese attackers. As he did the rounds of the hill, Corporal Pat Knowles was “amazed at the drag marks, blood, cotton wool and bandages where the Chinese had dragged their dead and wounded away during the night”.
The Chinese commanders failed in their ­efforts to push the Australians off the ridge, but they realised that if the Diggers could be dislodged from the summit of Hill 504, O’Dowd’s depleted troops would be unable to hold. This time they would not wait for darkness. Every Digger on that hill knew what was coming. “It was my 24th birthday on the 24th of April, which was the second day of Kapyong, and I didn’t think I would see another one,” Sergeant Ron Perkins recalled.
At around 7am the Chinese launched their first assault against the summit of Hill 504. The same ­pattern of attack was repeated every 30 minutes until 10.30am, with each one beaten off at heavy cost to the enemy.
With dozens of wounded soldiers awaiting evacuation, 3RAR’s New Zealand-born commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Bruce Ferguson, called the medic, Captain Don Beard. “He said, ‘I’ve arranged with an American tank regiment for a squadron of tanks. We’ll go up there with ammunition and see if we can get the casualties out. Will you come with me?’ Beard recalled. “I didn’t want to go because I had only just got out of the battle. However, of course I said, ‘Yes, sir.’”

As soon as they spotted the tanks moving up the valley, the Chinese started firing. Inside the tanks, Ferguson and Beard listened to the clatter of bullets striking the turret as they trundled towards the battalion’s position. But on the return trip a remarkable thing happened: the Chinese guns fell silent. The tanks made several trips with wounded Diggers strapped to their sides, and each time the Chinese held their fire.
O’Dowd’s men had been hoping the tanks would bring grenades and ammunition for their Owen submachine-guns; what they received instead was high-velocity ammunition designed for heavy machine-guns, which soon stripped the rifling from the barrels of their weapons, rendering them useless. As for food, water and medical supplies, the Diggers on the hill would have to do without.
Only the promised arrival of the Americans’ 5th Cavalry Regiment convinced O’Dowd that his men could hang on, but by early afternoon on April 24 news reached Brigade HQ that the Americans would not be coming after all. The Diggers had been abandoned to their fate. Convinced that 3RAR would not be able to survive another night of Chinese attacks, the commander of the 27th British Commonwealth Brigade, Brigadier Brian Burke, decided to withdraw the Australian battalion.
“Sometime after midday,” O’Dowd recalled, “the commanding officer came on the air to ­advise me that there was no relief coming our way and I had approval to take a shot at getting the rifle companies out.”
While D Company clung to its position on the summit, O’Dowd got to work planning a fighting withdrawal along a route that – for all he knew – might already have been blocked by the Chinese. Timing was critical. The enemy had had all day to observe the battalion’s actions and O’Dowd considered it an “absolute certainty” that they would renew their assault after dark.
The likelihood of being pursued along the ridge by the Chinese led O’Dowd to adopt a leapfrog-style withdrawal, in which one company stood its ground while another prepared to fall back and the third moved. New Zealand gunners kept the Chinese at bay with a barrage of smoke and high explosive shells, some landing no more than 150m from the Australians.
Some of the Diggers were reluctant to abandon their positions. A few members of D Company felt they were holding on alright and demanded to know why they were being ordered to pull out. But with ammunition running low, staying on was impossible.
By 11.30pm, the withdrawal – described in the official history as “difficult and brilliantly executed”– had been completed at a cost of just one man captured. Australian casualties for the two-day battle were 32 men killed and 59 wounded.
The text of the Presidential Unit Citation made clear the significance of 3RAR’s achievement: “The seriousness of the breakthrough on the central front had been changed from defeat to victory by the gallant stand of these heroic and courageous soldiers.” The Australians’ ­dogged defence at Kapyong blunted the Chinese Spring offensive and bought time for the UN forces to establish a new defensive line.
Jack Gallaway rejoined the battalion in time to bury the dead at Kapyong, and after the war wrote a history of 3RAR’s Korean campaign. Although he’d missed the battle, Gallaway knew how it had been fought. “It wasn’t a battle where influence could have been brought to bear by great tactics or by brilliant officers,” he said years later. “It was simply a matter of digging in, holding on by your teeth and fighting literally to the last man and the last round. And that’s what they did.”
After Kapyong the Korean Warlapsed into a stalemate that would last until the armistice on July 27, 1953. The war left behind a legacy of distrust between North Korea and South Korea, marked by periodic border skirmishes, kidnappings, espionage and other provocations that continue to this day. Kim Jong Un’s recent assertion of perpetual ­enmity with South Korea was a stark reminder that while North Korea signed an armistice with its neighbour, it has never made peace.
Anna Fifield, Asia-Pacific editor at The Washington Post and author of The Great Successor: The Secret Rise and Rule of Kim Jong Un, says we should all be concerned by the legacy of an unfinished war that has led to the creation of an impoverished totalitarian state with a nuclear weapons program. While the two Koreas have existed in an uneasy standoff for 70 years, Fifield argues that Kim Jong Un’s latest comments are “more than the usual bluster. [His] calculations seem to have changed and he’s taken a whole bunch of unprecedented steps – not just changing the constitution but destroying monuments to unification and testing new nuclear-capable weapons.”

With the US distracted by the Ukraine and Gaza conflicts, Fifield warns that Kim Jong Un could sense an opportunity to launch some kind of attack. “That might be shelling outer South Korean islands, as his military has done before, or something more provocative,” she says. “He appears to almost be girding for a fight.”
Kim’s grandfather showed where that led. b

So four royals out of a dozen or so royals doesn’t exactly give any credence to the vaccine causes cancer speculation.

This was the era of the gold standard, which meant dollars were tradeable for an exact amount of the precious metal. Seizing the metal enabled the government to print more dollars to try to stimulate the economy, and also to buy more dollars on the international markets to shore up the exchange rate.

Many gold owners were understandably unhappy about the gold seizure, and some fought it in the courts. Ultimately, however, the government could not be stopped, and gold ownership remained illegal in the US until the 1970s.

This intervention was not unique, even in contemporary history. In 1959, Australia’s government put a law in place that allowed gold seizures from private citizens if “expedient to do so, for the protection of the currency or of the public credit of the Commonwealth [of Australia]”. And in 1966, to stop the decline in the pound, the UK government banned citizens from owning more than four gold or silver coins and blocked the private import of gold.

This was only lifted in 1979.

Woddenhead.

The gold confiscation and the continuation of the gold ban was an attempt to prevent a private market from starting up in the US, which could therefore demonstrate deviation from the official to the open market. It had nothing to do with the government profiteering or increasing the gold hoard in order to revalue the greenback.

STFU with this crap as you’re an annoying economic illiterate, which goes with you kneeling to Marty.

The gold ban was lifted in 1974 by Gerald Ford, you crank. If you expect others to be accurate on dates that also applies to a know-nothing slivering limey crook like yourself. Now bugger off. Go check on the ladyboy.

Rosie, where did you find that statistic? It certainly doesn’t equate with my experience.

Apart from myself, I know of only three other people (and one is a guess) among my acquaintances, including my church congregation. Granted, several might prefer to keep their illness quiet, but even so, the incidence – in my experience, as I said – isn’t anywhere near 50% of the population.

I have comments that might be caught in moderation regarding vitamin D and thymosin beta 4 and quinolinic acid and ASD, Alzheimers etc, but as an inflammatory response to toxins – but also being more prevalent in modern strains of legumes & wheat, with smoking perhaps being an innate attempt to tamp down the inflammatory response as these groups smoke more etc.

I assume these can range from minor skin cancers to all sorts of malevolent things.
Pre covid both my neighbours husband and wife early fifties got cancer, he had brain tumour, died she had breast cancer survived, my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer thirty years ago, still going. My grandfather died of lung cancer in his nineties, my father died of a rare war service related blood cancer in his sixties, (also had some little skin cancers) my sister has breast cancer, two other family members by marriage died of bowel cancer, the spouse of the very recently deceased one also has breast cancer. My mother has also had some little skin cancers removed.
I have a hazy memory that my maternal grandfather also died of bone cancer in his late seventies.
