It is interesting to note that earlier in the day, A34-005 "Wallaby 05" was joined by fellow RAAF C-27J A34-009 as "Wallaby 09", along with Sytraders Pty Ltd Casa 212-400 turboprop VH-VHB as "Snowbird 4", which was completing parachute work for the Australian Army, operating low level down South-West of Warwick.

As we reported below, on Monday 18 June, a trio of Air Affairs Australia Learjets touched down at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) Airport from their Nowra base in New South Wales.  On Tuesday 19 June, they all took to the air and completed airwork in Shoalwater Bay before eventually returning to Hervey Bay.

Ex Hamel 2018 - RAAF Search and Rescue Agusta AW139 Helicopter VH-SYJ "Choppa 32" Lands at Rockhampton Base Hospital "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

On Tuesday 19 June, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Search and Rescue (CHC Helicopters Australia / Lloyd Helicopters) Agusta AW139 helicopter VH-SYJ "Choppa 32" was spotted landing on the Rockhampton Base Hospital heli-pad.


It appeared to come into Rocky from the Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA) where it is presently based in support of the joint Military Exercise Hamel 2018.

It also comes a day after Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter A40-020 completed a medical evacuation drill by also landing on the Rockhampton Hospital heli-pad on Monday 18 June.

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 19 June, there were a couple of other helicopter visitors into Rockhampton Airport in support of Ex Hamel 2018.

An unidentified Australian Army MRH-90 helicopter popped in briefly during the morning as "Hustler 11", while during the afternoon, another called in as "Warhorse 31".  Later still, another MRH-90 believed to be A40-041 also visited Rockhampton Airport but as "Kraken 11".

Ex Hamel 2018 - Photos of Australian Army MRH-90 and ARH Tigers "Warhorse-Angry Combined" at Rockhampton Airport Late Monday "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

As we posted below, during the latter part of the afternoon on Monday 18 June, some nice helicopters of the Australian Army and Royal Australian Navy (RAN) popped into Rockhampton Airport in association with Exercise Hamel which is currently underway in the nearby Shoalwater Bay Training Area (SWBTA).


Local plane spotter 'IAD' was on hand to capture some great photos as a flight of one Australian Army NH Industries MRH-90 Multi-Role Helicopter - A40-034 - was accompanied by a pair of Australian Army Eurocopter (ARH) Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopters - A38-007 and A38-020.

Population growth quicker than previously estimated (slowing from higher-highs) "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Population growth rate: slowing from higher-highs

A somewhat confusing set of figures from the ABS today, with a final rebasing of population estimates from the 2016 Census shaving nearly 20,000 off the estimated resident population of Australia, leaving the population clock now at just a tick over 24,950,000.

That means that the population clock is now projected to hit 25,000,000 in August, a bit later than scheduled.

Interestingly, through, the latest revised figures also showed that the growth in the estimated residential population was quicker during the first half of last year than previously reported, peaking at 408,179 over the year to June 2017, before easing back a bit to 387,969 (or 1.6 per cent). 


The revised numbers showed that net overseas migration into the three most populous states was pacier than previously reported in the early part of last year, with immigration into Sydney temporarily sending New South Wales off the top of the charts (literally so in this case).


Annual immigration into Western Australia has now increased for four consecutive quarters, with the three most populous states now easing, if you take these figures at face value. 

The auditor in me has a sneaking suspicion that there might be a cut-off issue with some of these numbers. However, it does seem that the pace of immigration could be slower this year than last, for a range of reasons as better explored by Signor Pascoe at the SMH and the New Daily.

"A Look to the Heavens" "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Bright spiral galaxy NGC 3169 appears to be unraveling in this cosmic scene, played out some 70 million light-years away just below bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Its beautiful spiral arms are distorted into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. In fact, drawn out stellar arcs and plumes, indications of gravitational interactions, seem rampant in the deep and colorful galaxy group photo.
Click image for larger size.
The picture spans 20 arc minutes, or about 400,000 light-years at the group's estimated distance, and includes smaller, dimmer NGC 3165 at the right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is likely the site of a supermassive black hole.

Court coal mine decision reveals failure on climate change "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Stock images of coal in the Hunter Valley region, Tuesday, July. 15, 2014. AAP Image/Nikki Short.

A Court decision has exposed serious flaws in NSW planning laws. The Courts finding is that the States planning laws do not require decision makers to consider the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and Australias status as a signatory to the Paris Agreement when considering the approval of coal mining projects in NSW.

The Land and Environment Court has upheld the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) decision to approve the extension to Wilpinjong open-cut coal mine near Wollar in the Hunter Valley, despite a challenge on climate change grounds from the Wollar Progress Association, represented by the Environmental Defenders Office (EDONSW).

EDO NSW argued in a February 2018 hearing that the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and the Commonwealth Governments commitment to the Paris Agreement were relevant policies that the PAC was required but failed to have regard to when considering the downstream greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of coal from Wilpinjong, a substantial proportion of which will be burnt at Bayswater Power Station in NSW.

In light of the finding, EDO NSW CEO David Morris emphasised the need for reform:

This is certainly not the judgement that we, or our clients, wanted. But perhaps its the judgement we needed. We now know that aspirational policy statements, like those contained in the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework, fail to have any meaningful application to NSW mine approvals. Its these approvals and the coal which is consequently mined and burned that represent NSWs greatest contribution to global climate change. The Government can no longer claim, or proceed under the illusion, that their policies on climate change have an on-ground effect. They dont the Courts judgement shows they are merely words that do not translate to action.

This decision adds weight to the need for law reform to make climate change a critical factor in determinations about projects which will contribute to it. This...

"Maybe I can put it another way. Life, Charlie Brown, is like a deck chair."
"Like a what?"
"Have you ever been on a cruise ship? Passengers open up these canvas deck chairs so they can sit in the sun. Some people place their chairs facing the rear of the ship so they can see where they've been. Other people face their chairs forward. They want to see where they're going! On the cruise ship of life, Charlie Brown, which way is your deck chair facing?"

Inner Brisbane Cross River Rail CAPEX comparable to statewide education CAPEX "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

Just before I appeared on 612 ABC Brisbanes Breakfast program last week, one of the presenters Bec Levingston asked Deputy Premier Treasurer Jackie Trad what it would cost to air condition every classroom in Queensland, a question she obviously couldnt answer without notice. Having spent the bulk of my schooling in un-air-conditioned classrooms in tropical Townsville, it struck me as a peculiar question, and I though air conditioning every classroom in the state would be a massive extravagance. That said, it did prompt me to look at what the state government currently spends on education capital works and compare it to what it spends on other priorities.

In state budget paper 3, the Capital Statement, we are starting to see the huge cost of the number one extravagance in the state at the moment, Cross River Rail. Total spending on property, plant and equipment for Cross River Rail, which is part of the Treasury portfolio, is estimated to be $733 million in 2018-19. This $733 million spent in inner city Brisbane on Cross River Rail is greater than total property, plant and equipment purchases for the Education portfolio of $674 million across the whole of Queensland! To be fair, I should note that if you add in $99 million of capital grants to other entities (which I suspect includes private schools and universities), total estimated education capital spending comes to $773 million in 2018-19. Still, the fact Cross River Rails total capital spending is of the same scale as education capital spending across the whole state should raise eyebrows. Incidentally, the region benefiting the most from education CAPEX is inner city Brisbane (see chart below). Political commentators would observe the government is worried about a Greens takeover of inner city seats.

Real resource constraints and fiscal policy design "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

There is an interesting dilemma currently emerging in Australia, which provides an excellent case study on how governments can use fiscal policy effectively and the problems that are likely to arise in that application. At present, the Australian states are engaging in an infrastructure building boom with several large (mostly public sector) projects underway involving improvements to road, ports, water supply, railways, airports and more. I travel a lot and in each of the major cities you see major areas sectioned off as tunnels are being dug and buildings erected. Not all of the projects are desirable (for example, the West Connex freeway project in Sydney has trampled on peoples rights) and several prioritise the motor car over public transport. But many of the projects will deliver much better public transport options in the future. On a national accounts level, these projects have helped GDP growth continue as household consumption has moderated and private investment has been consistently weak to negative. But, and this is the point, there have been sporadic reports recounting how Australia is running out of cement, hard rock and concrete and other building materials, which is pushing up costs. This is the real resource constraint that Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) emphasises as the limits to government spending, rather than any concocted financial constraints. If there are indeed shortages of real resources that are essential to infrastructure development then that places a limit on how fast governments can build these public goods. The other point is that as these shortages are emerging, there is still over 15 per cent of our available labour resources that are being unused in one way or another 714,600 are unemployed, 1,123.9 thousand are underemployed, and participation rates are down so hidden unemployment has risen. So that indicates there is a need for higher deficits while the infrastructure bottlenecks suggest spending constraints are emerging. That is the challenge. Come in policies like the Job Guarantee.

Infrastructure boom yet idle labour

Australia is currently enjoying a major infrastructure spending boom via several large-scale projects in the States and Territories, but also at the Federal level (for example, the National Broadband Network construction).

There is no doubt that one of the major reasons Australias GDP growth has been relatively robust in recent years is due to this large public spending commitment.

The first graph shows movements in State Final Demand indexes from the March-quarter 2008 to the March-quarter 2018 (most recent data). The March-quarter 2008 was the peak of the last cycle before the GFC slowdown.

Corrupt Queensland police bribe bashing victim not to press charges "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

If Australia's police force gets caught out committing criminal offences, there are a few ways that the matter is dealt with by police.


In this case Queensland's Police Service whose chief is Ian Stewart (pictured above), offered cash or hush money in order for the victim not to pursue further action against police.

In the case of the 'whistle blower'  Rick Flori, he gets charged by the organisation he worked for, the organisation committing criminal offences.

SO to make it simple Sgt Rick Flori exposed criminal activity, where he gets charged for committing a criminal activity.

So in Australia it's a crime to expose criminal activity [of the 3rd tier of government, called the judiciary, which the police are part of]?

(Still need more proof you live in a police state?)


What is also concerning is that 18 months earlier Ian Stewart falsely stated that the victim Mr. Noa Begic did not want to pursue charges against police, when in fact he did.

Please note that he (Begic) was paid off in a secret and court sealed confidential settlement, where he then withdrew the complaint.

How can a court (or any person) trust the words of the chief of police Ian Stewart, when at law he is described as an 'unreliable witness'?

Around the world, people have surprisingly modest notions of the ideal life "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

It seems reasonable that people would want to maximize various aspects of life if they were given the opportunity to do so, whether its the pleasure they feel, how intelligent they are, or how much personal freedom they have. In actuality, people around the world seem to aspire for more moderate levels of these and other traits, according to findings published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.

Our research shows that peoples sense of perfection is surprisingly modest, says psychological scientist Matthew J. Hornsey of the University of Queensland, first author on the research. People wanted to have positive qualities, such as health and happiness, but not to the exclusion of other darker experiencesthey wanted about 75% of a good thing.

Furthermore, people said, on average, that they ideally wanted to live until they were 90 years old, which is only slightly higher than the current . Even when imagined that they could take a magic pill guaranteeing , their ideal life expectancy increased by only a few decades, to a median of 120 years old. And when people were invited to choose their ideal IQ, the median score was about 130a score that would classify someone as smart, but not a genius.

Motorcycle tours for people with disabilities "IndyWatch Feed Qld"

A veteran Toowoomba rider is hoping to establish a motorcycle tour business for people with disabilities as well as tourists and anyone interested in a riding tour as a passenger.

Mick Jackson has also designed a special sidecar to accommodate people with disabilities and their carers.

I ran a trial motorcycle tour business in Toowoomba for about six months and received a lot of enquires from people with special needs, their carers and disability support organisations, he says.

Unfortunately, in many cases we were forced to turn people away because our vehicles and traditional tour ride protocols and procedures were not capable of providing our passengers with special needs a safe and professional ride experience.

Crowd funding

So he has now kicked off a crowd-funding campaign to start his business, Live To Ride Motorcycle Tours, to provide people with or without disabilities and special needs with the capacity, ability and opportunity to enjoy the thrill of a motorbike ride in comfort and safety.

Click here to donate.

He hopes to raise $100,000 over the next month with no funds drawn from the campaign to start the business unless it reaches its target.

The Big Lift Coming to the ASX "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

Todays Daily Reckoning Australia is taking you to the United States. But were not going to discuss the trade war rhetoric or international relations today. Were going to go house shopping.

After all, thats what plenty of Americans appear to be doing. I can say that because Harvard University just released its latest State of the Nations Housing report. Its been issued annually every year for three decades.

Good news for the economic outlook! The rate of people renting is in decline and home buying is rising. Thats no surprise.

America is due to see an additional 12 million households form over the next 10 years as millennials move into their peak earning years and the baby boomers live longer, plus net migration.

It should be affordable too. Median monthly payments on a modest home are actually lower in real terms than they were in 1988.

Thats despite some prodigious gains in some US housing markets since the bottom around 2011. Its all thanks to lower interest rates. The outlook for growth here is very good.

This might all seem a bit ho-hum to you sitting here in Australia, like me. But its vitally important. The mainstream news will always quote the US stock indices, but rarely anything about this.

Thats despite the fact that the average US consumer generally doesnt own stocks. But they do own houses.

Healthy real estate and job markets will drive US consumer spending. A US recession seems a distant prospect for now, while these other factors appear so strong.

We can say the same thing about Australia.

Theres plenty of people who love to scare us all with how high private debt levels are here. Not so fast on that. I saw some figures this week that suggest this is not as extreme as nominal figures appear.

If you net out the level of deposits against the gross debt, you get a debt figure of 100% of income and not 200%, as is often bandied about.

Thats not necessarily going to save some geezer whos geared to the hilt and bought at the peak of the mining boom in some regional town.

But Australia is probably less vulnerable to a systemic real estate collapse than most people assume. Repayment statistics are close to their long-term trends.

Theres also the intriguing development of the NSW government deciding to establish a Future Fund in its latest budget, with an initial $3 billion in the kitty.

Heres why this is worth keeping an eye on Should a real estate problem appear, or even general slowdown hit in NSW, it takes no imagination whatsoever to conceive the politicians pouring this money into the economy to jack things up again.

ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie explains economic benefit of the ABC to Australia "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

ABC contributes as much to the economy as it costs the taxpayer: Michelle Guthrie, https://theconversation.com/abc-contributes-as-much-to-the-economy-as-it-costs-the-taxpayer-michelle-guthrie-98553?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=facebookbutton    The Conversation,  Michelle GrattanProfessorial Fellow, University of Canberra  June 19, 2018 

ABC managing director Michelle Guthrie has hit back against critics with a Deloitte Access Economics assessment that the public broadcaster contributed more than A$1 billion to the Australian economy in the last financial year.

This was on a par with the public funding of the organisation, she told the Melbourne Press Club, in an address coming days after the Liberal Federal Council urged the ABC be privatised a call rejected by the government.

Far from being a drain on the public purse, the audience, community and economic value stemming from ABC activity is a real and tangible benefit, she said. The Deloitte study was commissioned by the ABC; Guthrie said its report was still being compiled and would be released next month.

Of the $1 billion, more than a third is economic support for the broader media ecosystem. Far from being Ultimo-centric, the ABC is boosting activity across the country, she said, giving as examples the filming of Mystery Road in the Kimberley and the production of Rosehaven outside Hobart.

Deloitte calculated the ABC was helping sustain more than 6000 full-time equivalent jobs across the economy. It means that for every three full-time equivalent jobs created by the ABC, there are another two supported in our supply chain local artists, writers, technicians, transport workers and many more.

In hard figures, the research shows that the ABC helps to sustain 2500 full-time equivalent jobs in addition to the 4000 women and men who are directly employed by the public broadcaster.

When broken down this equates to more than 500 additional jobs in production companies, over 400 jobs elsewhere in the broadcast sector, and close to 300 full-time equivalent jobs in the professional services.

Amidst the debate over the ABCs purpose and its funding we should all remember that there are 2500 jobs outside public broadcasting at risk in any move to curtail our remit and activities.

Addressing the critics argument that the ABCs about $1 billio...

Rate hikes pushed out until 2020 "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

OIS see no hikes imminent

The Reserve Bank released its Board Meeting Minutes today for June 2018. 

I noted here the other day that there was an addition in June relating to declining mortgage rates on outstanding loans. 

It was interesting to note that in today's release the wording was given a little tweak to add a bit more clarity, suggesting that mortgage rates on new housing are no longer falling. 


There was a bit of discussion about the positive impacts of immigration on the ageing population.

Australia has experienced strong population growth over the past decade.

Thanks to young migrants, notably the median age had declined in New South Wales and Victoria.

There was a murmur of excitement due to there being no direct reference to the next move in rates being up.

Not sure I'd read too much into that personally, although currency markets flickered a little!

There was also a reference to wages being 'low and stable' which isn't wording that exactly screams imminent tightening, although there is reportedly some evidence of wage pressures in parts of the economy. 

In any event, reality is dawning on financial markets, with RBA meeting overnight indexed swaps looking increasingly skinny and now not pricing in a hike until 2020.

March quarter resi prices (-0.7pc qtr, +2pc yr) "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

ABS reports modest price declines

The ABS released its residential property price indexes for the March 2017 quarter.

Although these figures are retrospective, they are always instructive, and reflected tighter lending conditions this quarter.

The total value of the dwelling stock was a nick lower at $6.9 billion - albeit well up from $4.4 trillion in 2011 - putting the mean price of residential dwellings at $687,700, and leaving housing market equity of around $5.1 trillion or so.

At the national level there was a quarterly decline in prices of 0.7 per cent, now leaving prices just 2 per cent higher than a year earlier.


The quarterly price decline was mainly accounted for by the most populous city, Sydney, with Melbourne also posting a moderate 0.6 per cent decline. 


Zooming in on the New South Wales capital, from a year earlier attached dwelling prices in Sydney were still 0.4 per cent higher, but house prices were 0.8 per cent lower (though all dwelling types were below their respective June 2017 cyclical peaks).  


Over the year to March 2018 the strongest price growth was seen in Hobart at 14.1 per cent, and the weakest w.........

WestConnex sale looms as bidding duel narrows to Transurban, industry funds "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The WestConnex project in Sydney has generated massive opposition form affected communities and led to the rise of community groups that are waging an ongoing campaign. This battle has contributed to the growth of a lack of confidence in government. This article by Michael West (18 June 2018) provides a rundown of the latest developments, which includes the moves to sell the projects resulting tollways to the private sector.

It is little wonder that trust in government is bruised by the day. The secrecy and dissembling over Australias largest infrastructure project, WestConnex, is a case in point.

To be fair, some sympathy might be conceded governments undertaking ambitious public works projects, especially when they entail tearing down peoples homes to build motorways and locking horns with angry residents groups. Even from the outset however, the $17 billion WestConnex project in Sydney has been handled more like an SAS mission than a public project requiring community consent and deliberation. As a suite of project deadlines looms, public confidence is running low.

The greatest flaw in this project has perhaps been the failure to consider, from the start,  whether rail might have been a better option than road. There was no Public Sector Comparator to contemplate a mass transit alternative which might be cheaper and more efficient. No public consultation or discussion. Just roads to be privatised, tolls to be had to juice up the sale price from privatisation.

Now, as the deadline for sale nears, the sale that is of a 51 per cent majority stake in Sydney Motorways Corporation (SMC) which houses the gargantuan WestConnex, questions over the project are hitting fever pitch. Does it stack up?

The latest concerns:

John Pilger: Bring Julian Assange home "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

The Australian government has an obligation to free Julian Assange, John Pilger told a rally in Sydney on June 16, marking Assange's six years' confinement in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. The persecution of Julian Assange must end. Or it will end in tragedy. The Australian government and prime minister Malcolm Turnbull have an historic opportunity to decide which it will be. They can remain silent, for which history will be unforgiving. Or they can act in the interests of justice and humanity and bring this remarkable Australian citizen home. Assange does not ask for special treatment. The government has clear diplomatic and moral obligations to protect Australian citizens abroad from gross injustice: in Julian's case, from a gross miscarriage of justice and the extreme danger that await him should he walk out of the Ecuadorean embassy in London unprotected. We know from the Chelsea Manning case what he can expect if a U.S. extradition warrant is successful - a United Nations Special Rapporteur called it torture. I know Julian Assange well; I regard him as a close friend, a person of extraordinary resilience and courage. I have watched a tsunami of lies and smear engulf him, endlessly, vindictively, perfidiously; and I know why they smear him. In 2008, a plan to destroy both WikiLeaks and Assange was laid out in a top secret document dated 8 March, 2008. The authors were the Cyber Counter-intelligence Assessments Branch of the U.S. Defence Department. They described in detail how important it was to destroy the "feeling of trust" that is WikiLeaks' "centre of gravity". This would be achieved, they wrote, with threats of "exposure [and] criminal prosecution" and a unrelenting assault on reputation. The aim was to silence and criminalise WikiLeaks and its editor and publisher. It was as if they planned a war on a single human being and on the very principle of freedom of speech.

Scotsman's letter proves the slaughter of Aborigines "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

An extraordinary letter home to Scotland from a young man who had emigrated to Australia in the 1830s has been made available to people trying to reconcile with Aboriginal history. James Graham wrote home to his family in Fife in 1839, a year after he had emigrated to Australia, and his letter contains proof that Aborigines were massacred by white settlers - studies have shown that up to 60% of Australians still do not believe such atrocities happen. During National Reconciliation Week earlier this month - seven days of promoting Aboriginal culture - the so-called Overland Letter by Graham was promoted by the University of Melbourne in its online publication Pursuit. The letter from the university archives is extraordinary for several reasons, not least because it is a rare example of the "criss-cross" style of writing which Victorians used in order to save paper - the most famous user of that method was the missionary and explorer David Livingstone. According to Pursuit, Graham's cross-writing horizontally, vertically and diagonally filled two large leaves of heavy paper with words that would later add up to forty pages of typed transcription.

Videos & Report on Melbourne Free Assange British Consulate protest today 19 June 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

The Free Julian Assange protest outside the British Consulate at 90 Collins Street Melbourne started on time and was well attended. Julian Assange's father was there and thanked people for coming. We have to give credit to the organisers - the Socialist Equity Party (SEP). It seems that no-one else in Melbourne has been able to draw people together to protest about Julian Assange's persecution, although it is obvious that many people do care. A problem may be that people believe they need permission to hold meetings and rallies, but this is rarely the case. There were several speakers and we did not film all of them. The films uploaded here were filmed on a hand-held digital camcorder, more for the record than for art. We also filmed the surroundings and participants to give viewers an idea of the scene in Australia. Another protest was to be held tonight (19 June 2018) at the State Library, where the film, Collateral Murder, would be shown. We have embedded a copy of this chilling record of a night of murder for fun by US armed forces in Iraq, which is a document that Julian Assange published, and for which he has been pursued with murderous resentment by the United States ever since.

The Collateral Murder video (April 2010) (embedded below) was shown at a Free Assange Vigil from 6-8pm at Melbourne State Library on 19 June 2018.

The video below records James Cogan, National Secretary of the Social Equality Party's speech about Assange's predicament and the record so far of Australian prime ministers, among other things.

Scientists confirm that mysterious radio signals from outer space are not made by humankind "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

By 

The universes brightest signals are extraterrestrial in origin, Australian scientists have confirmed. Their report, published in Monthly Notices at the Royal Astronomical Society, was able to detect three specific radio emissions which definitely came from space.

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) were first recorded a decade ago. These are pulses of light that are the brightest scientists have ever seen. However, their origin has always been a mystery. FRBs have been linked to everything from alien communication to errors in measurement to interference from Earth. In fact, these signals were thought to be little more than anomalies after a famous 2015 controversy showed scientists supposedly receiving alien messages only to find out these were just interference from their own microwave. However, this new report puts an end to all the controversy: These bizarre signals are not coming from our planet.

This was confirmed after data were gathered from a giant telescope located 40 km outside of Canberra. Three such FRBs were recorded using the Molonglo radio telescope. This specific telescope features an enormous focal length, having a collecting area of 193,750 square feet (18,000 sqm) and a field of view of around eight degrees of the sky. The telescope is able to produce 1000 TB of data every day.

Conventional single dish radio telescopes have difficulty establishing that transmissions originate beyond the Earths atmosphere, said Dr. Chris Flynn of the Swinburne University of Technology. The Molonglo telescope was re-engineered to be able to gather more data.

Corporate Bullying resources for the coal impacted community "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

If you are an employee, sub-contractor, consultant or member of a stakeholder group or Community Consultative Committee (CCC), there are things that you can do if you feel that you are being bullied when dealing with a company.

Everyone at the workplace has a Work Health and Safety duty. Under WHS laws, while at work, workers must take reasonable care that their behaviour does not adversely affect the health and safety of other persons.

It is important that the bullied person take action early to document the bullying and seek support. There should be company policies and procedures that explain the courses of action available in addition to the legislated protections.

The Safe Work Website says that the negative impacts of workplace bullying on the victims or witnesses is repeated and unreasonable behaviour directed towards a worker or a group of workers that creates a risk to health and safety.

Examples of potential unreasonable behaviour include:

  • abusive, insulting or offensive language or comments
  • aggressive and intimidating conduct
  • belittling or humiliating comments
  • victimisation
  • practical jokes or initiation
  • unjustified criticism or complaints
  • deliberately excluding someone from work-related activities
  • withholding information that is vital for effective work performance
  • setting unreasonable timelines or constantly changing deadlines
  • setting tasks that are unreasonably below or beyond a persons skill level
  • denying access to information, supervision, consultation or resources to the detriment of the worker
  • spreading misinformation or malicious rumours, and changing work arrangements, such as rosters and leave, to deliberately inconvenience a particular worker or workers

This could have the following effects on the bullied person

  • distress, anxiety, panic attacks or sleep disturbance
  • physical illness, for example muscular tension, headaches, fatigue and digestive problems
  • reduced work performance, concentration and decision making ability
  • loss of self-esteem and self-confidence....
